The Origin of Christopher Steele's Lies Comes From Clinton Campaign
"Took years two more years on top of that for the Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz to expose that mister Steele had relied in a Russian source who said he never expected mister Steele to present his info as facts since most of it was hearsay Now derms indictment says that this source this guy danchenko obtained material from a longtime democratic operative who was active in the 2016 Clinton campaign In other words the Clinton campaign passed it off to this Russian guy the Russian guy passed it off to Christopher Steele and then Christopher Steele put it in the dossier and then the FBI used that information to then go after Carter page and other people within the Trump campaign And tell everybody that Trump was a Russian puppet A Russian steward you see That's the Democrats ran on And they knew it the whole time They knew what they lied They lied to everybody about this Hillary Clinton's campaign lied And there were so many people in the government that were more than willing to go along with this You know they were just happy to go along with this They didn't even stop Trump No matter
How Thirsty Was the FBI for Michael Sussman's False Trump-Russia Claims?
"Just to kind of sum up where we are now. This break in the SPI geh case on Friday was important because it shows Hillary Clinton working with the FBI and a group of attorneys to fake these connections between Trump and Russia. And it shows an FBI more than willing to take the information in and eager and looking for an excuse to get in front of a judge and say it was real and the problem is, they kept flooding the zone. Hillary Clinton, with all of these sources say Trump's colluding with Russia whatever, and they kept telling the FBI they were working with the DNC and Hillary And it created a problem for the FBI because they couldn't tell a judge that So they needed a clean source. They needed a white knight to come in there. Someone clean as the driven snow with a clean C B. Oh, no, no. These people are just in here to tell us about Trump. They have no ulterior motives whatsoever. How do we know that? Because we know On September 19th of 2016 this white knight showed up. According to the allegations, the FBI and the indictment on Friday Michael Sussman, who is a lawyer working with Mrs Clinton, this is why I'm telling you, it's a bigger deal than you think. This guy is connected to everyone. There's no way John Door, um, locked him up for nothing. So he comes into the FBI office. And he says, I have information about Trump colluding with Russia. And according to the allegation, he says, Oh, I'm not working with anybody. I'm not here on behalf of any client. I'm just here giving you potential information about a criminal conspiracy. And the FBI is like yes, finally. Finally The FBI is like this is just great. We gotta sources clean. We can put his information down in a fight application. We can spy on Trump and we won't have to lie and tell a judge, you know, uh, cover up for Hillary Clinton or anything like that. So, it says. In the end I and the FBI's press release that suspects showed up September 19th 2016. Why is this suspicious? Because you learn later on If you watch my show today, the podcast you learn right now on the radio show. If you read the Inspector General Michael Horowitz report who looked at this entire story. There's a really interesting nugget in there again. Hat tip. Our friend full Nelson on social media is all over this stuff. Here it is. Remember, I want you to pay attention to something right here. The date The lawyer walks in. The FBI office is September 1920 16, where he meets with the FBI. And this is their clean source. Finally. They've been hearing all summer about Trump and the Russians and all the sources are dirty. They're telling people that working for Hillary, this is the one guy who said according to the indictment. No, no, I'm not working for anyone. They felt like they had it. How do I know the FBI is in on this? What I think. Let me read to you a piece of this footnote here. From the Horowitz report. The only express direction. We found that Andrew McCabe, who was the deputy director at the time gave regarding the use of a confidential human source concerned. A former confidential human source who contacted an FBI agent FBI Field office in late July. 2016 to report information from a colleague runs an investigative firm hired by two entities, the DNC as well as another individual to explore Donald Trump's long standing ties to Russian entities. So in of this part, one of the footnote, McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI knows that people are piling into FBI offices as early as July of 2016 who are working for Hillary and the DNC. Got it. Okay. Moving on. Good footnote goes on. The former confidential human source also gave the FBI agent a list of individuals and entities who surfaced in the firm's examination of Trump, which the former CHS described as mostly public source material. In mid September. 2016 Andrew McCabe told senior Special Agent one to instruct the FBI agent from the field office not to have any further contact with the former confidential human source and not to accept any information regarding the crossfire. Hurricane investigation Is it that timing Church lady

Senate Republicans May Expedite Trial By Calling No Witnesses
"As Congress was leaving for its holiday recess speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi is taking an unexpected gamble delaying sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate charging trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress thereby preventing the triggering of the Senate trial an attempt to shape the process and gain leverage in the Senate the Democrats are demanding that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called key witnesses including White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton to testify McConnell declaring on Thursday we remain at an impasse what we do now when the trial finally happens two thirds or sixty seven votes are needed to convict the president an unlikely outcome in a Republican majority Senate for more on this we're joined by senators on each side of the aisle who will determine the president's fate and we'll start with Republican senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin good morning senator morning Martha merry Christmas thanks very much same to you you said earlier this month that you think the consensus in the Senate would be to let the house make its case the White House make its case and then put forward a motion to vote without witnesses is that still what you see happening I think so that should be just general discussion within the conference the case is pretty thin the houses sending over us if they ever send it over to us you're pretty pretty thin gruel from my standpoint so what will what both sides and they have a fair chance making their case then we should do take a vote so so you believe there are fifty one votes in the Senate for the quick trial with no witnesses is that something moderate Republicans will support again I can't speak for anybody else but I'm just saying the scuttlebutt inside the conference would seem to support that I would think and then you have criticized speaker Pelosi for not immediately transmitting articles of impeachment to the Senate to try to get leverage with the Senate to agree to hear from key witnesses like Mick Mulvaney John Bolton but why shouldn't you be willing to call witnesses again I'm not sure criticize rose just things kind of bizarre they they had to rush to a this impeachment vote and then also and she's sitting on it I I don't think so you should be making the case that the whole should made in there presentation I my guess is they weren't able to make the case as I said that the charges are are are pretty thin gruel I don't see anything in peaceful match so it just not that is not the job of the Senate to make the case of the house to the made in their impeachment clause for an impeachment the articles impeachment senator are you watching post poll for this week's show seventy one percent of the country believes the president should allow his top aides to testify including sixty four percent of Republicans this is something president trump himself advocated for just a few weeks ago let's listen when you share will be fair in the Senate I would love to have my mom makes I'd love to have and many of the people testify but I don't want to testify when this is a total fix and he's talking about the Senate so if it is really what the president wants if it is what a large majority of Republicans want why not do it again I I've said repeatedly that up I will support the president in the type of trial he wants a type two witnesses he he wants to bring but again I I I also think it be totally appropriate to have the house put on their case the present prime on his case and then decide what we're gonna do after that point and and what do you think it would be messy and unproductive to to have witnesses or or change anything that's something you've also sad well first of all I've been conducting oversight in into related matters sense literally March two thousand fifteen I started yeah my my committees were charged with killing could email scandal the FBI's investigation of that bat in many respects morphed into the whole Russian collusion with trump campaign hoax we just held here with Michael Horowitz last week there's an awful lot of troubling problems with what happened inside those investigations a lot of damage being done to our democracy right now mark mark this what we're not talking about so we we can sense on this in peace we can sense on the trial but what I'm trying to do is I'm trying to get the American people the truth of what all happens so something very strange happened you've got forty forty five cent mereka public that they're completely supports president this border strengthening forty forty five percent that really don't tell obviously you know he's not their Cup of tea let's put it that way ten to twenty percent American people middle are just asking what is pulling off I'm trying to answer those questions well let's go to some some new questions their new emails released by the Pentagon on Friday after the center for public integrity for you had them those show that it was about ninety minutes after president trump held that phone call on July twenty fifth with the president of Ukraine the White House budget office ordered the Pentagon to suspend all military aid that had already been allocated to Ukraine and then a budget official told the Pentagon to keep quiet because it was a very sensitive matter does that concern you as I've said repeatedly the president's been very consistent in desperation he gave me in terms of why he had reservations about Ukraine the the generalized endemic corruption which he obviously presence was the one on an anti corruption platform and then the fact that you're just doesn't do as much as a present thing so they should do to help out to Ukraine a country in its own

"On real well I think all of it is I mean then and this is the point let me go back to Michael Horowitz saying that the IG report did not indicate anyone who touch this which was the main talking point of the media mom when this thing came out but he's only look at this in a very narrow view I as a narrow purview here like he's in a bubble because his authority only extends to the FBI and to the DOJ the FBI her former F. B. I. director James Comey said this week and the that your report indicates and is that a fair assessment of your report hi you know I think the activities we found her down and vindicate anybody who touch this there I'm sorry so that's why I was saying it doesn't indicate any body and now we've got girl who's really looking at all of this so I I think the reality is that these guys like you said you near the right to remain silent I would be quite a far with these guys and then of course what that defies the abuse the abuse by the way on the court itself is breathtaking why have we not heard from the FISA court judges that war well why to repeatedly and given false information because the law also requires let let's go back I want to play for you first but as I asked this question and I want to play for you what rob Rosenstein has to say about the FISA warrants and it's an affidavit career law enforcement and and you have to have it verified and you swear to the best of your knowledge the true and we now know what was on verifiable from the get go through the prism of this I want you to answer the question the way we operate the department justice if we can accuse somebody of wrongdoing we have to have admissible evidence and credible witnesses need repair to prove our case in court and we have to fix our signature to the charging document that's something that not everybody appreciates now there's a lot of talk about Faiza applications and many people that I I see talking about it seem not to recognize what defines applique five applications actually a warrant just like a search warrant in order to get a FISA search warrant you need an affidavit signed by a career federal law enforcement officer who swears that the information the affidavit is true and correct to the best of his knowledge and belief and that's the way we operate and if that's wrong sometimes it is if you find out anything incorrect in there that person.

four pages of facts interesting facts but the dana mall the resolution is pretty bad because michael horowitz does once again what he did with struck and page and the email server investigation of hillary clinton he will not i pull the trigger on the FBI and senior DOJ officials he says with a straight face that there was a legitimate predicate to who run a counterintelligence investigation against the trump campaign and donald trump and you know what that's based on a conversation and between george popadopoulos and a former australian ambassador alexander downer and the information that popadopoulos gave save downer was information that was fed to popadopoulos via CIA spy josef mifsud to conclude as hoorah aura which does that there was a legitimate basis for a counterintelligence investigation against the president is ludicrous it is an embarrassment to the department arc of justice i don't know how horowitz can hold his head high let me follow because of course we did not get thousands of sealed indictments there is something i think there is something else to point out here the methodology of today's modern FBI we follow this throughout the course of the show what do did they do when there's because they don't want to be heroes they all wanna be the FBI guy whatever the pro i don't know what it is what's going on there or if it's just pure legacy from j. edgar hoover it's gotta be some of that but the you know they'll find a semi-retarded guy who posted something on twitter like you know like isis and then instead of doing something about it they go hey this this guy it looks pretty retarded let's give them some fake bombs and let's string him along for three months it's the same things six to nine months but it's the same thing all they want is to be the heroes and catch everybody and and they'll do whatever it takes to get the outcome that they want and so it's not just the pfizer you know the courts it's the entire FBI CIA as just as corrupt and rotten as well is it embarrassments embarrassments of intelligence agencies but i'll tell you something else that really blew me away nancy pelosi she did the town hall on CNN after she announced the the articles were approved proved move ahead and she talks about not impeaching she's actually asked a question why didn't you impeach or vote to impeach george w bush when he clearly lied about iraq and when i heard this answer maybe she's just so frazzled she's she's messing up the timeline but it re this it really disturbed me to pelosi you resisted calls for the impeachment of president bush in two thousand six and president trump following the more report earlier this year this time is different wide did you impose a why did you oppose impeachment in the past and what is your obligation into protect our democracy from the actions of our president now thank you thank you for bringing up the question about because when i became speaker the first time it was overwhelming called for me to impeach president bush on the strength of the war in iraq which i vehemently opposed and again not again i say again i said other places i that was my wheelhouse intelligence i was the ranking member on the intelligence collagen committee even before it became part of the leadership of gang of four so i knew there were no nuclear weapons in iraq that just wasn't there but they had to show us this show the gang of four all the intelligence they had the intelligence did not show that that that was the case so i knew it was a misrepresentation to recover if she knew it was a misrepresentation to the public why did she let us go to war people died all i knew it was bullshit i knew it right away and then she will even says this that in my view not a ground for impeachment impeachment wow hundreds of thousands of people died who destroyed droid an entire country's based upon a lie she knew it the gang of four new it but yet it wasn't impeachable yeah we knew they couldn't prove it it but whatevs that's the arrogance the bothers me the and get them out that's really really horrible and maybe you should her the timeline is maybe she's confused but it sounds to me like she knew what going in the believable yeah yes saddle edward satis is different situation because as other analysts might have it this is the new era when you have a o c the and the gang gang for whatever the the the square squat watch all that is the most misogynistic thing i've said today the squat nice and they and they see the deriding writing on the wall and you have these new people that are coming up and they would put again i'll keep mention this client smith guy and the rest of the group the strikes and pages are all all these older millennials that are under educated for the most part brainwashed into thinking a certain way about things yeah they really do think socialism's a great idea and it's because they've been told that it was a great idea unbelievable that we haven't implemented it it already and capitalism is bad and there's no reason for borders i mean this all this litany of this coming down there was saying well just the i hope you have a point it's it's pathetic so i think nancy's just fallen prey to the fact that things are changing in her party to to be the party is filled with these people i mean the site that woman that was dead kicked herself out of office that i can't remember her name now the one in los angeles it was the show naked massaging her staff hit highest office she's naked rubbing the guy and then she has to quit now she's now she's still floating around saying but there's more to be done i want to bring it back to the core issue for me because again impeachment or not it yeah honestly i don't care it's good it's good show material one way or the other what is a real problem for me personally adam curry in texas is the the pfizer process that that could happen you know what a great way to actually d platform someone for real and just imagine the stuff i some imagine we thought we should check up on you what you're talking about on the phone you know what you don't put on your podcast imagine just imagine

because i think that's also that's not being discussed at all but i want to go back to ukraine for just a second because i believe that the reason this has been jumped on overall is because there was a lot of money and everyone had their hand in the till and it's the biden's it's pelosi with her son it's carry with his son it's john brennan it's lindy lindy hop op graham graham it's mccain of course the kagins the noodle men's and it goes right back to back to hillary clinton in the state eight department and the only outfit that is seems to be doing something and they have this reporter in ukraine is one america news and i pulled two clips because they got an interview with lukashenko lukashenko is the prosecutor who was told hey you can't prosecute prosecute these people this is the guy that biden was yelling about and they got to be with them english is actually pretty good and listen to what he says about what actually went down with ukraine strain in an exclusive interview with one america news ukrainian former prosecutor general yury lukashenko says ivanovich perjured herself before congress and giovanni which is the the former ambassador the ginger lady mce and he has the documents to prove it so i'm assuming you inherited mr shokhin's prosecutor general the office and describe for us your first interaction with the US embassy in this position so was good but then you want to visited me ambassador to mr kent visited me for small because asional tokens today visit you in your office just curious firstly i wasted in her office and then it was the second meeting but the first in my office visited me and we spoke walk normally and she asked me to change some old deputies but then she asked me about to close case of one person awesome then the north is impossible i couldn't close any case without investigation so i took a piece of paper the table.

"Review of the report by the independent watchdog of the justice department the inspector general Michael Horowitz now Michael hello which is not a prosecutor per se his job is to investigate and report and in so doing he offers a guideline as to how the FBI attempts to take down Donald Trump it's over five hundred pages it's pretty dense stuff it's not a page Turner it's not a thriller it won't be made into a net Flix special I have spent the afternoon debating whether not do this or not what we have come to the conclusion that we're going to do something we very rarely do Lindsey Graham senator Lindsey Graham's opening statement he's the chairman of this committee his opening statement this is the Senate Judiciary Committee obviously we've been hearing from the house Judiciary Committee which is controlled by the Democrats Jerry Nadler is the chairman Doug Collins is a ranking member and before that the house intelligence committee will now the Senate is taking up not impeachment but the Senate is taking up the report into the investigation into president trump long awaited long overdue let's just say the Democrats move faster than the Republicans Lindsey Graham's opening statement while it's not concise it's not brief it's gonna take a little bit for us to get through it but he lays out the report he lays out the findings in such a way well I'll tell you how how well he did MSNBC is being criticized today for not airing his opening statement imagine that they've gone wall to wall on all the drum stuff but now that it comes down to did the FBI target president trump so we're going to do something we very rarely do let me get to it stop talking about we're going to error we'll see how it goes most of Lindsey Graham's opening statement I have a few thoughts in between there which we will we will which will stop for I'm gonna ask you to to really focus if you don't understand exactly what all is going on you just get a general sense that things are a mess listen carefully because Lindsey Graham it he's a lawyer he's a guy that that listens to this stuff a lot he's a guy is pretty good grasp on it I have plenty of disagreements with him but he does a really good job of explaining what this report says did these are your cliff notes all right let's get to what Lindsey Graham actually said we'll talk to congressman Dan Crenshaw in the next hour from our conversation earlier today about his perspectives on what's going on from the house side of it but here was Lindsey Graham's opening statement I think it's worth hearing labored hard in your work product is impressive and I just want to thank you all for what you've done for the country and miss rose had dined here from you but and I bet I haven't made twenty minutes of opening statements in the year of take a little bit longer to try to lay out what I think is before us as a nation our crossfire hurricane was probably the best name ever given to an investigation in the history of investigations goes up that's what we wound up with a cross fire in a hurricane there's been a lot of media reports about your report before it was issued and I remember reading all these headlines lawful investigation with the fear regular everything okay a low level people kind of got off track if that's what you get this report you clearly didn't read it if that's your take away that this thing was lawfully predicated and that's the main point you missed the entire report how do you get a headline like that that's what you wanted to be you want to debate that and nothing more and I can assure you if this had been a democratic president going to what president trump had gone through that would not have been the headline the headline would be the F. B. I. takes law and his own hands biased agents cut corners why to court ignore exoneration so the first thing I want you to know is how the cake is baked here and my goal is to make sure that people when this is over what do you like trump hate trump don't care about trump you look at this is more than a few irregularities because if this becomes a few irregularities in America then god help us all now the people that were in charge is it and this investigation were hand picked but Mr McCain who is now CNN analyst high up in the FBI the number two guy the first question I will ask in a bit is this the best of the best are these people normal representatives of the department of justice and the FBI I hope you will say no because I believe it to be no and if I believed otherwise I would be incredibly depressed so ladies and gentleman I'm going to assume something for the sake of argument that there was a lawful predicate to open up a counterintelligence investigation and I want you to know the standard to open one up is about like that and I also want you to know a counterintelligence investigation is not a criminal investigation they're not trying to solve a crime they're trying to stop foreign powers from interfering in America that a counterintelligence investigation is designed to protect Americans foreign influence I want the American people to know there was an effort to affect Hillary Clinton's campaign by foreign actors the FBI picked up that effort they briefed her about it and they were able to stop it we will be receiving a defensive briefing to Morrow as a committee from the FBI to tell us all about what we should be watching for and they may be some specific threats against us I don't know but I know they're going to brief us to protect us not to surveil us and there's one on every American in a from the time they opened up crossfire hurricane so this debacle was over they never made any effort to brief Donald Trump about suspected problems with his campaign they had one briefing talking about you know the Russians are out there you never eat better be where nothing about Carter page nothing about pap adopt was nothing about the other people that they thought might be working with ten you with these for why not tell I really think what he's saying is.

G.'s methodology is I think it's the appropriate methodology for an inspector general he starts to limited information you can only talk to people who were essentially there as employees and is limited to the information generally in the FBI but his approach is to say if I get a explanation from the people I'm investigating that is not unreasonable on its face then I will accept it as long as there's not contradictory testimonial or documentary evidence in other words to very deferential standard and all he said is people gave me an explanation and I didn't find anything to contradict it so I don't have a basis for saying that there was improper.

S. person who was connected to the trump for president campaign we determined that the decision to open crossfire hurricane was made by the then FBI counterintelligence divisions assistant director bill pre staff and that his decision reflected a consensus reached after multiple days of discussions and meetings among senior FBI officials we reviewed department if your policies and concluded that assistant director pre steps exercise of discretion in opening the investigation was in compliance with those policies assistant director pre stamp we also reviewed as we detail in the report the emails text messages and other documents of those involved in that decision and particularly missed the steps and we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that indicated political bias for improper motivation influencing his decision to open the investigation well the information in the F. B. I.'s possession at the time was limited in light of the low threshold established by department and FBI predication policy which by the way is not a legal requirement but rather potential one in the in the FBI and department policies we found the crossfire hurricane was open for an authorized investigative purpose and with sufficient factual predication so the investigation into drop of Russia collusion was open on a valid basis he said but regarding the dossier full of inaccuracies full of omissions was central to granting the visor visa application likely would not have been granted without the phony dossier about the conclusion of that the investigators did not have bias Lindsey Graham talk about that later on but I think I need to emphasize the importance of this discrepancy between ambassador someone and the aid to Ukraine someone says he took it to the side and said look president trump says the money is going to be held up unless you announces investigation and that exchange was included in the final report by the house intelligence committee in their report they set foot following this meeting a meeting that your Max has never happened following this meeting someone pulled aside Valenti's adviser Mr your mac to explain that the hold on security system what condition on the public announcement of the charisma Biden and the twenty sixteen election interference investigations into court that in that the Democrats Intel committee report this exchange that your mac the assistant to the president Ukraine says never happened is this thing on.

B. I. in twenty sixteen to open the investigation into the Russian attack on the twenty sixteen election I mean there really wasn't attacked there really was skulduggery that took place which has been uncovered by investigators and has been the subject of so much focus since then if senator Gramm focused on the details here about the page story the Carter page story senator Feinstein and Democrats want to talk about the big picture that this really wasn't attack that it really was Russia and not another nation has and has become the subject of controversy more recently here in Washington and that the FBI and the justice department and other intelligence agencies were justified in responding to the information they were getting twenty sixteen and trying to figure out what was happening in that report about it to Congress and the American people as they have yeah you've mentioned the committee's ranking member senator Dianne Feinstein and Democrats have focused on the conclusion that ho it's found no evidence of political bias or improper motivation let's hear what she had to say I believe strongly that it's time to move on from the false claims a political bias and those who showed great interest in the question a politically motivated investigations against president trump should show the same concern about politically motivated dated investigations requested by the president or his Attorney General is this hearing today likely to bring any clarity to the ultimate poll well you know point of this report are we just talking past each other Republicans and Democrats the answer to your first question is no among other reasons because there are pages from the horror was report that are redacted and so there are still things about the story about Carter page for example that we do not know because they're continuing to be withheld by the government the other question which senator Feinstein alluded to in those comments you played is that there's another report about the investigation still pending from the justice department Connecticut U. S. attorney John Durham has been asked to do his own look at this he's already said in an unusual statement when Horowitz's report came out that he disagrees with some of the things that are in that report so we have a whole other chapter of litigating about this to look for to whenever Durin's work is complete okay my last question with you for the few seconds that I have with you the mark of the impeachment articles begin tonight what are you watching for well that's going to be a normal process but also very contentious all legislation whether it's naming post offices are impeaching the president has to go through the same practice so Democrats wanted to be by the book but we expect minority Republicans on the committee to make it as painful and drawn out as long as possible with procedural motions and other tech attempts to delay it that's Phil Ewing election security editor for NPR thank you Phil

S. M. C. A. thing was interesting the president brought it up but yesterday that you know that the the as proof that the Democrats are feeling an impeachment and that's why they want to work out a deal with him yeah on on U. S. M. C. A. I don't know what they negotiated that would make it different haven't been able to analyze it yet we probably will when we see the the the the the final version if there's a final version that has to be agreed upon by Mexico and and in Canada on it or if the changes were so small that they don't need to be renegotiated we stated on U. S. and CA to begin with that it's I think was it who headed the National Review and we said this this isn't a massive change over nafta this isn't a real writing in after because now after was horrible and just unacceptable and now we have straightened everything out now it there's a little there's a little bit of a change here there this is not going to change the trade imbalance between the United States and Mexico no you know that's right the president ran on the trade imbalance you notice he never brings it up anymore right you know and so and I'm happy with that I'm happy that the president I said some of the things I'm that make me support this president more on the issues is what he hasn't done right and in this case the trade agreements he hasn't done what he claimed he would initially do when he was running for political office and that's okay with me and and his loyal supporters don't seem to mind the only thing that I am a little bit worried but I'm sure you can make adjustments to it because I think that both countries would be willing to do that is on the automobile sector because as of the way that you SMCA was to begin with I think it will have a negative effect on the economy twill small extent because it will be more expensive to produce automobiles in the United States in Canada and in Mexico which means those jobs will be shipped overseas Mexico may lose some of the jobs but the United States isn't going to gain right yeah and and so that is my but that is probably negligible and so in a way it's just a it it's a wash you basically have you basically have a re written north American free trade agreement that is roughly ninety eight percent the same as the old one there are no major changes because now after was destroying the planet and the United States and so it had to be replaced are all a lot of it there is the as we talked about the updating because a modern technology in the protection of of of ABS of certain patents technological patents and things like that which is good and you have to update it because of technology to to begin with but as for massively re arranging it where the United States can stop the trade imbalance no that's not it here no and I you know the political when I don't know that the only political when it's very small for the Democrats might be that the Republicans were going after them because the impeachment thing was keeping them from doing the people's work and especially on US MCA it needs to be done needs to get done before the end of the year there they just want to I guess Democrats are looking to counter that they're not going to get there isn't a real political win for anyone except maybe I guess the president but ultimately that only happens again I'm if the economy keeps chugging along well I look here's here's where I believe it could be an advantage for the president now that it's set let let's say you you will have companies that now can in Canada the United States whatever invest money that the way that they wish to invest money right because we now know we have a standard which again uncertainty is what helps helps kill market so if you have that certainty that we have the trade agreement that everybody can work within it and therefore the whole is more investment between the United States Mexico and Canada that would be what you would be looking for so that might be the advantage going into twenty twenty and if things are quiet on the China front and again my my worry still is my my one worry and I know it's been glowing reports and everything else but it's never good when you will for months a manufacturing decline right never end so that is the one thing that worries me and again now the one thing that helps a little bit is the fact that the the China and the European Union it seems like they're indicators are that their economies are rebounding if that happens then the manufacturing base in the United States will rebound yeah and and of course if you have manufacturing and exports and and the factories or you know ramping back up you're gonna have of course with transportation the trucking industry is going to a see a bit of a boost the American trucking associations issuing a statement yesterday that truckers support the US MCA or or something to the effect of that on the day are glad you know celebrating the US MCA the American trucking associations for those that don't know represents the a number of carriers large trucking companies and so don't know again I haven't talked to owner operators on it but none the less the transportation industry we see that a fact then for the transportation industry you see a great deal of interstate commerce that that starts to be refueled again and and I think that's probably a good thing you could probably get to that measurement and the president could point to a couple of things certainly a Larry Kudlow could point to a couple of things if you get you SMCA don in January let's say if they get it over to the Senate and and and they vote on it and the president signs it into law and everything goes into effect you might see a few things that would show on on certain markers in terms of economic reports by the election and so I don't know how much of it you know again is going to be one of those huge wins you know I think still the president's greatest wow remember when the president was only the good the bad guy because he wanted a wall think about everything that has transpired and been thrown at this president since twenty sixteen while he was candid it trump but all along the way I mean if you think about the number of items that he's he was looking to do they got taxes lowered by the way they're they're still trying to work apparently the Democrats are still trying to work to raise that salt deduction not again and don't know if that's going to happen next year or not if there's going to be any movement there but I'm really scared now if there if the Republicans are attempting to lower taxes again last time they did it you and I ended up paying more in taxes than but then again the positive of that is is a reason the economy is booming probably according to Democrats is because Erica Gerry's taxes went up yeah I think it's clearly at this primarily in fact because of us got to get that shot yeah I just we do every night you know the the president if you you look at that the big items that he promoted in twenty sixteen it was really was border security and the economy well the economy is chugging along right now there are some things where there could be improvements you see those improvements next year and again it becomes the president's election to lose I think I think right now it is anyway the only other store and I'm sure we'll talk more about it mean because we you we have all the time is the documents that show that the that the bush administration the Obama administration of the trump administration everybody's not been telling the American public the truth on Afghanistan yeah yeah yeah yeah have you lived with status for the law this isn't a war number one the belief that you can win the war and walk away is a false concept to begin with your file on Islamic radicalism this is a multi generation war that you when I've said from the very very beginning and the American government I don't care what administration is in should be omitting or should be telling the public that's what you're in for it's not a war that you walk in to fight for three years and walk away this is something as we have said and and stuff does from after nine eleven which could be something that goes on fifty to a hundred years or longer it is something that you consistently have to fight against yeah and I think I honestly think if you if you look at that it is it and and and by the way the war on terror for those who are conservatives those who support president that's not a big deal if the president

"Just apartment Michael Horowitz issue to more than four hundred page report written over an eight month period and in this report Mr Horace basically says just two things just to first that the FBI was dis honest in seeking surveillance warrants to spy on the trump campaign and second that knoll political bias was in play upon hearing that fair minded people all over the country said really so Michael horror which is convinced that the most sophisticated law enforcement agency in the world is incapable of properly requesting a wire tap on a presidential campaign perhaps the most important investigation the FBI has had since the nine eleven attack this is incredibly hard to believe and our which is boss Attorney General William Barr does not believe it he flat out says Mr Haro which is full of it and hinted that criminal indictments against some FBI people will be forthcoming which they certainly will be right now use attorney John dorm is investigating the FBI for alleged crimes that means former bosses James call me an Andrew McCabe are in trouble also top investigator Peter Strock whose texts to his mistress clearly show incredible biased towards Donald Trump is not in a good place by the way Mr door I'm also issued a statement saying Michael horror which is wrong the entire mess tells Americans that the F. B. I. was and may still be politicized think about it even if even if the trump campaign did to cooperate with Russia during the two thousand sixteen election and the F. B. I. proved it the case would have been thrown out because a surveillance warrants contained seventeen mistakes according to Michael Horowitz so how can this happen it can't the FBI is like a military operation the agents themselves in the field the finest investigators in the world take their orders from the top that means James cold me and his assistants were telling the FBI agents what to do and how to do it you can't say one guy made seventeen mistakes and misled a judge in getting a warrant and their superiors didn't because their superiors would have had to have read the paper work that went to the five G. judge yet that is what Michael horror which is saying there was no political bias finally a current FBI chief Christopher ray says that the F. B. I.'s a good organization and this clears it president trump furious with Mister right I'm bill Riley and I proved that message by actually writing it for more commentary please visit bill Reilly dot com and for a nice holiday gift please consider my new book the United States of trial you've been hearing about gold all over the news prices continue to climb not surprising given all the warnings of.
FBI was justified in opening Trump campaign probe, but case plagued by ‘serious failures,’ inspector general finds
"A Justice Department inspector general's report examining examining the FBI investigation of Trump's twenty sixteen campaign rebutted conservative accusations that top FBI officials were driven by political bias to legally spy on trump advisors but it also found broad and serious performance failures requiring major changes. The four hundred thirty four page report issued Monday by Justice Department. Inspector General Michael. Horowitz concluded that the F. B. I. had an authorized purpose when it initiated its investigation known as crossfire hurricane in doing so horowitz implicitly rejected assertions by the President and fellow Republicans that the case was launched instead of political animus or that the F. B. I.. Broke its own rules on using informants as the probe went on and the FBI sought court approval to survey a former campaign aide. The report reveals that officials repeatedly emphasized damaging information that they learned about trump associates but played down exculpatory evidence that they also also found. FBI Director. Chris Wray announced he will implement dozens of corrective measures in response to Horwitz's report. Andy said that disciplinary action remains means a possibility for bureau employees conservatives and liberals alike claimed victory after the report's release with Republicans asserting that exposed serious wrongdoing. We'll Democrats said it validated. The Russia investigation. The report which was based on more than one million documents and more than one hundred seventy interviews is the most exhaustive assessment to date eight of the investigation that has roiled trump's presidency but in the minutes after the document was released it became clear that the report would not be the last word in a statement attorney. General Bill Bar disagreed with one of the Inspector General's central conclusions saying the FBI launched an investigation of a presidential campaign quote on the thinnest of suspicions that were in my view insufficient to justify the steps taken so too did Connecticut. US Attorney John. Durham whom whom bar handpicked to conduct a separate investigation similar. To what Horowitz is doing. Durham put out a highly unusual statement for someone conducting an ongoing Criminal Investigation Gatien. That said he's gathered information from sources in and outside of the US. That Horowitz didn't have Durham said he advised the Inspector General that he does not agree. With the report's key conclusion related to predication which is whether the F. B. I.. Had enough information to open the case. Now what evidence Durham has to rebut. horwitz remains unclear. Some involved in the Russia case say they're mystified by the statement. Horowitz was particularly critical of applications the FBI made to the foreign intelligence surveillance court to monitor former trump campaign advisor. Carter page asserting that those applications contained quote significant inaccuracies in omissions and that agents failed to meet the basic obligation to ensure the applications were scrupulously accurate. The inspector general found that so many basic and fundamental errors were made by three separate handpicked teams on one of the most sensitive F. B. I.. Investigations there was briefed to the highest levels within the FBI. He concluded that there was a failure of not not only the operational team but also of the managers and supervisors including senior officials in the chain of command. Among those failures was the growing body of information mation the FBI had gathered suggesting that former British spy. Chris Steele whose reports the so-called dossier were key element justifying the surveillance of page was not not as reliable as source as officials had described the court when seeking the face of warrants. The report lays out in detail. How as the F. B. I.? Obtained additional information raising significant questions about the reliability of the steel reporting. The bureau failed to reassess. The original information didn't alert higher ups to the Justice Department and didn't notify. The judges is that had signed off on the FISA warrants as a result of those findings Horwitz has launched a broader audit of Fisa work to study how systemic those problems may be for Pfizer applications in counterintelligence and counterterrorism cases. Horwitz did not however conclude that the bureau's applications to monitor worked page should have been rejected.

It was supposed to be out this week. It has been delayed, according to the freedom caucus chairman. But one thing he is saying is it crimes were committed, and people need to go to jail, one name, it seems to be coming up in the Durham investigation is Durham is according to Catherine Herridge at Fox News is following all the leads. He's right on the Mark. He's on exactly the right trail that he should be on, according to people that he's met with questions that he's asked according to informed sources and that John, the drone ranger Brennan is I in the crosshairs, Hillary Clinton is saying are inescapable conclusions of the Muller report. She says that these conclusions are one there's obstruction of Justice. And that she feels that, again, the country was vulnerable to a Russian attack. And that again, nothing was done. Nothing was done to fend off the Russian interference that happened in Obama's administration and finally FBI docs, show that Hillary Clinton's lawyer telling the Justice department this is David Kendall. They don't have consent to double check the data on her hard drive before they were destroyed. So they're investigating Hillary Clinton and whether or not she violated the handling of classified material. Right. They have these hard drives that, you know, it would be nice to see the hard drives, what data's on hard drives, as part of our investigation, but they're Turney said, no, you have to get her permission. Did they get Carter pages permission? Did they get George popadopoulos permission? Did they get general Flynn, who has already fired as attorney? Now is thing about fighting about. Again, you could see it's all starting to unravel slowly, but surely, please don't Goldman, Shirley..
