"What's that all line you ever going to take a shot at the king? You better not miss. You know, I mean, it's always said in some overly dramatic way. And I love how people say it. They thought of it for the first time and had context or something. You think you shouted the king, you better not miss, but in this case, it's kind of true. I mean, if you're going to take out the guy who was the king of prime time cable news for 5 or 6 years, and you're going to try to take them out with a bunch of texts and videos, then the videos and the text better be damning enough that you actually finish the job. Folks, the cases just getting really strange, there's some more leaked video that came out, there's now a text that came out, which of course they're going to the tuckers are racist because that's just what they do. But I don't think the inclination here for a lot of folks has been to say, and I don't know either story to be true, but I always obey my own bongino rule. I don't know. I'm going to tell you, the inclination for a lot of people has been to say, well, Fox has got to be leaking this in an effort to destroy Tucker. And I don't know if I'm sure about that. I'll tell you why. Why would you leak it to media matters for America? Well, because they hate Tucker. Yeah, but folks, they hate Fox too. I worked there for two years. While vulgar longer than that, actually, had a show for two years. Media matters hates Fox. If you weren't going to leak to someone, you better be sure the person you lead to isn't going to tell people you did the leaking. Or else don't leak it, just come out publicly and just put it out yourself. I mean, take this through, right? Maybe it's the criminal investigator in me. But I like to think using reason. If you knew you were going to be outed in a leak, wouldn't you just put the leak out yourself and vote to him? I'm going to leak this, you know? I know Jim, producer Jim robbed the bank three weeks ago. And I'm going to leak it to who really hates me. Oh, The Washington Post fill a bump. It's only going to be a matter of time before Philip bump goes, hey, by the way, guys, Dan bongino is no saint either. He leaked out the Jim robbed the bank, right? So in that case, you might as well just put the information out. Is there anything I'm saying unusual or strange? If you're going to leak it, leak it to someone who you can actually trust won't turn around and stab you in the back later and trust me. Those people are not media matters for America. So the story doesn't make sense from that perspective. He's leaked videos. But the second perspective it doesn't make sense on either is this is to call them weak sauces like an insult to weak sauce. These are right. These aren't really a tax on Tucker in one text. Tucker is like, that's not how white guys fight or something. And I feel bad for this antifa gal. I mean, I'll read some of it later. I'll get to that. All right. It's a private text. And then at some point he's making a joke about we'll do it live. It's just the whole story is just bizarre. But I got a lot to get through today, not just that. I'm going to play for you today. As I promised yesterday, some cuts from one of the most important videos you're ever going to hear. And I don't think I'm overselling it. We covered it on the podcast at 11 and the audience response was amazing. We had 54,000 people stream in a listen at the same time. It's a video by James Lindsay that just undresses what woke ism and Marxism really is. And how it's just a, whatever you want to call it, wilks is woken progressivism, liberalism, Marxism, socialism, democratic socialism. It's all the same thing. It is a vehicle to control you and to control your money and to control your labor and whatever they need to do to control it they will do. Call you a racist, call you a bigot, a transphobe, a homophobe, an evil rich guy, not paying your fair share. It doesn't matter. I'm going to play cuts from that later. So don't go anywhere. It's going to be a really busy show. But all right, back to where I started. I'm not really sure what's going on. It appears at this point that the media has gotten desperate in this Tucker Carlson fight because if you're going to go swing for the king, you better not miss his melon there. You better take him out. So a text leaked out last night, The New York Times got it, the absolutely hapless Jeremy Peters. I mean a clown of just a goofball. A total deacon who this guy. And Michael Schmidt, Jim ruttenberg. You need three people to write this article. It's about one text. You needed three people to write that. I mean, the text, I'm not going to read the whole thing, but I'll read portions of it for me. So this text leaked out, Tucker sent to his producer. Keep in mind, this is a private text. It's the day after January 6th. For liberals. That means January 7th. I know there's some who are confused, like, I don't get it. This is January 7th. He says he was watching a video a couple of weeks ago, Tucker notes in the text of a street fight in Washington and there were a couple of guys he notes that were beating up on an antifa guy. So he's talking about that. He says jumping a guy like that is dishonorable, obviously.

Everyone is under a lot of stress these days, but the toll may be even worse than we realize. You may be facing what's being called micro stress. Things that are so brief and so invisible to us that we barely notice them. Cumulatively, they add up. Karen Dillon is the author of the micro stress effect, how little things pile up and become big problems and what to do about it. She says one example is an unpredictable workflow. Not a toxic boss or a jerk, but maybe a boss who stops you in the hallway to say he's got a new idea and are you supposed to be pursuing that or not, are you putting other things aside or not just not a 100% always knowing what's expected of you from the person above. Another thing that can trigger micro stress, something many of us are guilty of, waking up and reaching for your phone. Are you open your email first thing in the morning and you're already feeling overwhelmed? She says one thing that can help is talking with your colleagues to clarify what work needs to be done.

"On that? So I'm not familiar with the most recent product from coin type, but I have MK four cold cards that I've always really enjoyed. And this is all like a subjective opinion. I'm a big fan of multisig for holding a majority of your funds and making sure that you have the redundancy and the ability to have multiple physical locations that you're going to have to secure. Like not using a safety deposit box explicitly. So other individuals, family members, whatever. So then you have the protection of the multi keys in order to move stuff. And then keeping smaller amounts in other various wallets that, again, you had your own redundancy in terms of creating these backups, making sure that those keys are secured and locked down somewhere. But it's really going to be about both your technical know how and mount that you're trying to protect. And what your desires are for it. Because for some people, just having a moon wallet that they're using to ship around a couple hundred stats for whatever they're doing is a great idea. Whereas maybe you need multi security for larger amounts that you're using or if maybe you need to have a corporate oversight or other things. So in my opinion, it's really just about the approach, but I think what NDK is built. In terms of the products, his know how and the approach of what they're doing. It's my preferred product over everything else that's available out there. So yeah, unfortunately, I missed that conversation because I was doing dad stuff. Yeah, it was a good episode for sure, 'cause he came on the Q one is like a totally different look than the Mark four Mark three. It's kind of like a calculator with a full keyboard on it, which is pretty awesome. But we also had this guy on named Michael Schmidt, who's doing a home water heater system with through Bitcoin miners, which is pretty awesome. Do you get into anything like engineer or any creator? I know there's the black box and people do heating their home with minors. Do you ever go down that rabbit hole with how to use Bitcoin more creatively than you are now? I'd really like to. I'm kind of electrically retarded. So I'm pretty sure I'm going to electrocute myself doing one of these things. But what's going on in mining right now in my opinion is both what's going to help permeate the next bull cycle in addition to where a lot of the really important innovation is because there's so much potential to capture the heat that's being put out and utilizing it in different ways. So like I've had a couple tweets about like I'm really bullish on the idea of Bitcoin and HVAC and that I think in the near term future a lot of people will have their eating and air conditioning subsidized by energy companies that will like straight up give people an air conditioner to use that will like have Bitcoin miners in it that will be re appropriating that heat to do that. But yeah, unfortunately, I'm kind of technically retarded on the hardware front. So I will probably get to that once I have some free time next decade, but I don't foresee it happening before then. It's been like a long, quote unquote, bear market, but at the same time, you know, Bitcoin marches on. I mean, these developments keep happening. What is something that you're really bullish about coming up? I'm bullish about the tin can that. You seem to be speaking to us from maybe you're in outer space. It's a robot. That's robo hand. And I love that. He was the guy that's going to help Eric with his connection. This guy. Yeah. Sometimes they transforms into an autobot. Well, come out here to the lost coast and we'll get stuff set up. I live out in the middle of a fucking forest. So I feel fortunate that I have Starlink, but I got to cut some trees down around to help myself out with one of the most bullish about. It's kind of interesting because this is the first time that I actually feel bullish just about the community in general. I feel like the community is getting progressively stronger and stronger and stronger and the dialog from bitcoiners is getting more and more solid and hardened. And so I think this eventually just takes over by Bitcoin. You're Internet spent not gonna. God damn it, stupid Internet. You're more emotional. But I cut out otherwise. No, I couldn't hear you. But you were saying you're more and more bullish. Cut out a proof time. I'm more and more bullish about just the community in general. What I'm saying is just more solid dialog. People understand what's going on. And in a lot of ways, I feel like the last decade was everyone just trying to figure out what the hell was going on and what is Bitcoin. And so now I feel like we're really developing in a direction, not like the community itself, understands the purpose and what Bitcoin is for, who wants to get into the hands of as many people as possible for us to continue to build. And so, in a lot of ways, I feel like we're like halfway through the story of Bitcoin. And I think by 2030, it's going to really present itself in a global light for what we all suspect it can do, which I think is become a global money for all people everywhere. And I think that will open us up to some pretty different and radical potentials for humanity at this point in time, particularly in my opinion what seems to be like the most extreme nihilism that we're in and perhaps this can rescue us from it. We want to say what's up to kamiya. If I pronounce your name right, but what's up, man? Do you have a question? Or comment or anything? Going once? Okay. Well, Erika, are you on no stir? You into that at all? I know you're saying you're technologically not the most up to date, but that's something that the community is really into right now. Yeah, more with hardware I'm retired. I'm decent with software and I am on no star. Interestingly enough from when I was originally on the alpha, the private key that I verified, it's like not working for some reason. I think there's something happening with cutting and pasting. So I made a second account. I am on there. I'm very excited about it because the bird app is getting progressively more retarded. In addition to no star seems to be adding more and more features, more than people are getting onto it. And these are the technological developments that were absolutely desperate for. You know, like Bitcoin is, it's one and the most powerful tool that we have in our tool belt, but we need other things like no star and other methods of decentralized secure private communication, and so that's one of the other things that I see Bitcoin leading the development on is on this sort of ethical development of products for people well into the future. And it's really great to see something like no start getting the attention development that it deserves. And I hope, in the next few years, we'll see more people building on top of

"There are so many reporters investigative reporters, other types of journalists and just working folks across this country who do tough jobs with balancing parenting with this work. And I think that what we realized is that I think especially with the issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault. And I think you see this now kind of in the midst of the me too era is that all parents, whether it's parents of daughters, parents of sons, actually feel like that much more committed to this issue because they want to make sure that their kids are growing up in a world with adequate protections and fairness. And so while parenting could feel like a challenge at times, it was also a motivating factor. Jody, you mentioned you've been at the times for a while and you've done a lot of different things. One of them was reporting on the challenges that women who particularly work at hourly jobs like Starbucks have to take care of their children to do basic things like nurse and pump while they're working full time, but you've also been the editor of arts and leisure. You reported on the Obama as you reported on Amazon, was there anything different about this story that from what you had previously done at the paper that sort of made you think, okay, this is something entirely new here, or a particular challenge that you hadn't encountered before? I think what might be surprising is that this investigation felt like something bigger from the beginning, not even really because of Weinstein, but because of the context here in this building, which is that in the spring of 2017, Emily Steele and Michael Schmidt broke the Bill O'Reilly story. They were able to show that O'Reilly and Fox had paid women off for many years to silence accusations of sexual harassment. And then the really astonishing thing is that after we published the story, O'Reilly lost his job and the idea that a figure that powerful could be fired, not because of those allegations because Fox had known about those allegations, but because of public exposure of those allegations was like a real hay wait a minute, moment at the paper and the editors asked a question, the now sounds a little quaint, but they asked are there other powerful men in American life who have covered up stories of abuse and so we worked with a whole team. There were reporters looking at Silicon Valley, Katie benner. There were reporters like Susan chira and Catherine einhorn, did the story about the Ford factory workers. We were making inquiries about academia. We were looking into restaurant workers, and so from the beginning, the focus was really on looking at these issues across industries and also the two words that came up really early in the process were complicity and enablement. The project from the beginning was conceived not as this industry or that industry or this predator or that predator. But there's a structural problem here. There's a systemic problem here. And so even those early first few months of Weinstein investigation always played out in that context in our own building and in our own meetings.

"Here's how i knew it blah blah blah and make the case hero is the way he's being portrayed on your Left leaning channels no doubt. Msnbc all those kind of people just you know he will go down in history as the hero that saved america in fighting trump. That sort of thing I don't know. I don't know what's going to come out of this. Bob woodward himself says these are the first drafts of history. That's what these books are. Expects them to be amended updated through time. But this is the the first draft of these stories and This the the these are the quotes he got from all these people so far. Okay now you come out and You know the add to it or counter dictate with your facts or whatever or i. I'd love to ask some lefty journalists who are falling all over themselves praising the general and we could play. Why don't we play that just to set the scene number sixty three michael seems to be the greatest patriot That was on duty during the previous administration. I have to say emerging as a pretty important and heroic american figure in this era. I don't blame general milley for any of this. it's much i blame donald trump. He felt he couldn't trust trump and needed to take all necessary precautions to prevent him from doing something. Dangerous was second voice. Michael schmidt the fraudster from the west project and it was. Nobody should ever holding him. Nobody should ever hear from him again. If that's you're doing some sort of podcast on how to commit fraud then. I'd like to hear from him but anyway the point i was trying to make it plain those boxes a hair. Is that all right. So evidently you're saying this did happen. It's true and therefore general millions some sort of hero. Well if he did go outside the chain of command he was making clandestine contacts with chinese generals. He was it insisting that military officers swear allegiance to him instead of the constitution will then he needs to explain himself. He needs to say yes. It was something like a not a coup but we were getting ready in case it was necessary. You can't just praise him and move on or else or else. Potentially you're going to get this every single president. What will right and Where do you draw the line. That's that's where it gets into. A problem rarely fast. What if you had generals who thought what brock obama's deal he's making with. Iran is no good for american israel. That this is. He's out of his mind if he thinks this is gonna work. We're gonna get between him in that decision somehow. You can't have no no absolutely not. So which one is it lefties. I wonder if he does come out and talk by the end of the day. I think the fact. That senator marco rubio is Is out saying that biden needs to fire milly. If there are a few more vote voices that go that direction i think biden will either have to address it or merely will have to address under s to get addressed on some level. You know. democrats control the house and the senate. So republicans can't really get an investigation going that fast on their own but this this this needs to be answered..

"You know it's important as you look at michael schmidt the picture. He didn't have such a busy weekend. Then he didn't fred over how room writer was going is back down the most explains lineup one of the most exquisite backgrounds. We've seen yet on morning joe. I think the doorknob to his last up perfectly. So we've we've proven are shallow. We are now mike. Why don't we let smart people talk. Which means why don't we like to the thing that shocks me talking about this conservative lawyer to second. But but the state of taxes and the five justices on the united states supreme court have allowed the state of texas to strip americans specifically women of a constitutional right that has been written into the constitution for fifty years over a procedural. Hang up and here. We are two weeks into it. How many days are we into it. Now we're this constitutional right has been stripped away from women and one of the largest states in the union. It really is remarkable that there's this this still hasn't been addressed so given the what you were just saying and the importance and the significance of what has happened. We went back and looked at. How did this happen. How was it that this bill came out of texas. And why did they come at a texas in how was it structured and was expressly written in a way to give the courts a very difficult time at stopping it. Was this a a concerted effort to do that and our reporting show that that was true that this legal mind. Jonathan mitchell a former scalia clerk a- largely unknown person in many legal circles someone who struggled to get a job in the trump administration someone who struggled to get a job in academia someone who spends enormous amount of time thinking about the law reading about the law came up with this device this structure inside of this law to make it more difficult for the courts to stop it and we found that not only had that happened in this bill and that there had been this effort to go into it but that it had actually started as far back as two thousand thirteen when mitchell tried this in a different bill coming out of texas when he was the texas state solicitor general and that he had written into that bill. What he thought was something that would bulletproof it. Which would stop it from being gutted by the supreme court brier in two thousand sixteen ruling on that clock him essentially instead not so fast. I'm not going to let that happen and gutted. The bill and mitchell vowed to himself at the time that if he ever got a shot again to have his hand in writing bill and abortion bill to could go before supreme court he would stop at nothing to make sure that it survived and data where we find ourselves two weeks into this bill. Going into law at lose. I don't you find it. Remarkable that two weeks for two weeks and the state of texas the constitutional right avenue abortion which has been been been on. The books has been written into the constitution. Since nineteen seventy three has basically been null and void in one of the largest states in the union. Again based on a procedural loophole. I i can't ever recall that and i can't. I can't wait to hear the whining by the same people this bill when a state like California are estate like washington state decides to ban handguns unconstitutionally based on a procedural hang up. This is a horrific precedent and conservatives should be just aware of that as progressives whatever you call it the vigilante bill the bounty hunter bell. I mean this is rough justice to that can be used in any number of different scenarios and it's a danger to everybody of every ideology including all of us you value having a of little. I think the five full votes at the supreme court to allow this to go ahead for the time being. He's interesting because q justice. John roberts was on the fall of the dissenting for here. We have a really good example of even though both we have a very conservative chief justice. It's not enough to prevent a majority. So this springboks going to hand this the constitutionality of this bill in full sometime in the coming weeks Let's watch very closely to see. What those other five do you get michael schmidt. Tell me about The nine eleven reports release and your story behind that so the biden administration by similar administrations before it had been under pressure from the families of victims of september eleven to release more documents more information about connections between the saudi government and the hijackers has long been a long standing question that the families in much of the public in journalists have had the great unanswered questions of nine eleven is how much of a role did the saudis have in helping the hijackers in planning it and late on september eleventh on saturday night about twelve hours after biden had been at ground zero the f. b. i. Release see a more than a dozen page document that laid out that as recently as two thousand sixteen the bureau was still investigating the ties between the saudi government and the hijackers and it gets into details about context that some saudi consular officials had with the hijackers leading up to the attacks. And how the the sort of aided them in terms of getting acquainted when they got into the united states in california now these details were were interesting and helped eliminate what was going on the documents. Were not smoking gun connections. That showed that the saudi government played it. Direct hand in the attacks Some of the families members at spoke out after this said they were very pleased that these documents came out. They expect for more documents to come out. And i think there's a feeling. Among sort of good government types in such that the more the government discloses about it the fuller picture that we have and the more that you know you can make your own determination and sort of move on or not with michael's greater all right. Michael thank you so much Important stories we appreciate it and also thank you for coming with what has to be visually arresting. I've seen since.

"That you go to church with. Go synagogue with do it for your bottom line anyway. President bite was asked on friday about republican. Critics who played to challenge his new vaccine mandate in court. This is how he responded added clark. I am so disappointed that Particularly some republican governors have been so cavalier with the health of these kids so cavalier the health of their communities. This is this is. We're playing for real here. This isn't a game. And i don't know of any scientists out there in this field but doesn't think it makes considerable sense to do the six things i've suggested. We and somebody southern governors are doing the freak out which i think is fascinating climbing. It's unconstitutional how dare he moving in this direction. Because he's doing what about sixty seventy percent of american support. I think as rich especially now when you looked at the state of texas and you see what. Republicans are doing and the state of texas and being supported by republicans all over the country where they're actually running over these specifically enumerated constitutional rights that have been in place for half a century of women in the state of texas. They don't care that they're the thirty percent compared to the seventy percent. Who don't want roe v wade overturn. They're doing it. They're just running over this seventy percent and basically saying go to hell to the seventy percent who actually support the constitutional. What's been written in the constitution. For half a century here mak- they're whining like little snowflakes for joe biden. Doing what's been done for the past fifty years on mandates for children going into school and there's a thirty percent there the thirty five percent maybe forty percent in some polls and so i guess republicans think that when they're the minority they get to run over everybody when they're the majority they get to run over everybody but right now they're in the minority on this and and joe biden keep doing what's best for the. Yeah i mean you talk about politically joe. The hand on the hot stove like don't put your hand the hot stove. This could not be more of an example like the consequences are going to slap right back at these republicans in real time if they continue to allow this virus to spread and their state's jonathan lemere. The president said have at it. What happens if if if they do the president's frustration you can see it's close to the surface me this. We heard this tone from him in the last handful of weeks and in particular last handful of days just real real anger at the republican governors and poor pu-putting people's lives in jeopardy. The president and his top advisors believe they will they also think that they are on pretty solid footing. Legally they certainly anticipate there will be some challenges in the courts coming from these states coming perhaps some private businesses conservative own private businesses in the weeks ahead. But this is they feel like this is the moment to do this. That they've tried the incentive structure and they're even offering money a little nudge positives forgetting vaccines and now try to go the other way saying look things is time you could potentially lose your job if you don't get this like this or something you need to do to protect yourself because you're engaging yourself and others in our collective economic recovery and they feel like this is the first and foremost the public health issue. They think it's a political winner as well that most americans support the idea of increased vaccines a greasy of mandates of in many walks of life. And they think that the republicans are painting themselves into a corner where they will be seen as the party. Rejecting public health measures rejecting economic recovery in putting people's lives jeopardy. This is a political fight as we start to look at twenty twenty two in the midterms coming up but democrats are willing to have so sheryl. What's next for for states like mississippi And south carolina. Where the governor said. He'll go to the gates of hell for for public health officials who actually want to protect the children of south carolina and the senior citizens of south carolina. It's a bizarre thing actually go to the gaze of l. But is going to do what is next in terms of legal challenges so the governor can try to go to the gates of hell but in fact legal experts. Tell me that the president is pretty solid legal ground. He is citing the law that established osha. So you know that If you have a factory let's say you're exposing people toxic fumes and it's gonna kill them. Osha can come in and give you a citation and they can give you a you know if you really a severe violator. They can take you to court. So the by the administration is making the same case that this is a threat to workplace safety. And that's the ground this law or this mandate will be fought on a lot of republican. Governors are screaming about. It's unconstitutional. it's this or that It's really a case of federal law and experts. Say biden has the authority in federal law to do exactly what he did.

"And he's taking these moments and of course using them to push for his own agenda that build back better plan that three point five trillion dollar Reconciliation bill has a lot of climate change funding in there now. How much remains to be seen. That's the negotiations for senator mansion. Just yesterday reporting. But he doesn't want sport anywhere near three point five trillion he. You'll be much much of the pack for the overall package. Something closer to one trillion specifically about. He thinks he can be cut. He's starting to and some of its key free community college free college but other things are concerns about climate change measures including west virginia. It's a coal-producing state. That's going to be harder for him to sell their constituents and the as part of the international peace of this you're right and the administration knows knows it well. The president yesterday spoke about how he convened a virtual summit of farm of world leader earlier this year. Xi jinping didn't make much of an appearance this coming fall in in glasgow which has been a climate some years in the making all of the world leaders supposed to be there. They're hoping to hammer up some hammer out. Some agreements on carbon and other nature's but it's unclear whether the rest of the world particularly china russia india will play ball just talking about numbers might people can protest like the president of luxembourg's office president of luxembourg. Where really wanna go. But this problem right now starts and ends in china and we've got to figure out a way to get into the table and i'm wondering if you're hearing what what i've been hearing from. Republicans who've been skeptical deeply skeptical of climate. Change being a serious problem. I have been hearing from some republican thought leaders over the past year more of a willingness to accept that climate change is real that something has to be done with it they sort of. Maybe their fallback now is something needs to be done. We just don't know what needs to be done. Yeah i think you've seen a real shift not only from republicans but also industry right. You started to see oil and gas companies changed their positioning on this. Because it's just a realization that the world is getting warmer that they have to kind of change with the times and this is a real said little issue particularly for democrats also for independence and republicans are going to try to do everything. They can to try to find a way to thread the needle. It's tough because they don't wanna go as our as democrats and so for you haven't seen any real bipartisanship in terms of little areas where you might see some work to sightsee that actually working together on this issue and a stay with us. Want to talk about this story around the supreme court and the justice department house democrats. Yesterday pushed attorney. General merrick garland to use the justice department powers to prosecute texas residents. Who use the state's new abortion law to sue women seeking abortions judiciary committee chairman jerry. Nadler of new york and twenty three other house. Democrats wrote a letter garland that reads in part. We urge you to take legal up to and including the criminal. Prosecution of would-be vigilantes attempting to use the private right of action established by that blatantly unconstitutional law joining us now. Reporter of that story new york times reporter. Msnbc national security analysts michael schmidt so michael what recourse does the justice department have here are there. This is a law. That's on the books in the state of texas garland. Actually do about it. Well we point out in our story administration officials and legal experts basically were saying in the past few days that there are not a lot of great options clear options. There are not a lot of things that this president and that this justice department can do to really push back on this texas law. There have been a lot of different theories that have been put out there. There was an op-ed in the washington. Post over the weekend. By laurence tribe that proposed using a law similar to the one that nadler did in the letter that he sent a garland about how the federal government can use its powers to prosecute those that try and deprive another american of their constitutional right. But when you talk to legal experts they say. Look all of these things face. A a lot of complications. A lot of that. Based on the fact of how the texas law is structured the fact that it strips the power of enforcement from the states any gives it out to the average citizen in the fact that that a lot of these cases if they were brought we would be brought in in civil cases where the government would have to intervene. It's a complicated thing. That the justice department has it really been forced to confront in in certainly recent times and because of that they're sort of stuck so the president's base obviously very upset about this texas decision. There's a lot of of angst about it but there are not a lot here solutions. And that's what we were right. So so one of the solutions is if if a constitutional right is taken away in one of the biggest states in america. That's been on the books. That's that's been written into the constitution for about half a century. Why if it's a procedural problem. Why don't i am curious. Why don't abortion rights activists. Go ahead and get that plaintiff out there. Have they done that yet. Where somebody actually challenges the case uis. Somebody in texas are a frozen in place right now. Well that is what it was at. The heart of the original decision by the supreme court was a case that had been brought to you. Try and stop this law to try and stop it from going into effect and that is what got caught up in the court system in the court ultimately did not intervene gordon. Chang though that there's not a plaintiff and so if there's not a plaintiff i would have thought that by now there would be a plate of somebody would've already sued somebody or a doctor would would have sued somebody or somebody would have gone ahead with. Yeah it seems to me if the supreme court saying we can take away this constitutional right because there's a plant of why do why don't the pro choice advocates and actually people who support the constitution of the united states. Why don't they find that plight of so my sense talking to folks in the past few days. Yeah that case has not come come come to for wishing yet maybe something has been filed in texas that we don't know about maybe there is some case. That is sort of working. Its way through. But at this point that cases not come. The law has only been in effect for since september. First you need some time for it to play out. And i think on top of that. The impact of the law is an incredible deterrence effect. Because anyone that is associated with an abortion and helping someone receiving abortion can face these severe fines and what one person i was talking to last night said is that because one of the aims of the law was just simply the deterrence of it. And what do you do to to take on that deterrent. And how do you find that victim and we are only so many days into that law so my guess is that in the coming weeks we will see new developments. It come out of this because the law has been around for much longer but it is still extremely early in the age of that texas governor greg. Abbott defended the state's new abortion law. Denying it forces victims of rape and incest to give birth.

"With government believed in respecting the federal government. They have not wanted to do what the government said about medical things. They have been skeptical. Vaccines these are pockets of the country. That have always existed but when you have politicians that embrace that rhetoric it just gives license and helps that that section of the country grow because they are hearing people in leadership who they are looking up to and who they believe have authority endorse their views of the world so whether that is about january six and what happened there whether that is about vaccines whether that is about wearing a mask de sections of society are getting an okay a an endorsement of their view from people whose voices are amplified over a range of platforms and what we live in today in our country is exactly that it is those groups being fed by politicians in believing more in their own unfortunate misguided notions of what is actually going on in the country in what in what needs to be done to get us to a better place.

"It does seem that despite the fact that we all have as discuss grow numb to these stories it seems like nearly every week new revelation to just another way that donald trump tried to use the levers of government to keep his hold on power. And certainly these are stunning ones. We've learned about in recent days. Walk us through. what's next. Who else could we be hearing from. What other steps. The investigation may continue. Where who what other whether it's the committee or the g report. The georgia said walk us through where this could go in the weeks ahead. What else can we learn. Well it seems like we're fairly early on in this investigation they're taking depositions taking interviews with witnesses. This would go on for many weeks and months here to come before we would ever see sort of a final report. A final product of what is going to come out of this. I think we we have to remember these. These are not criminal investigations that are going on. These are investigations that will result in documents that come out or reports that come out that say look here. Here's our understanding of what happened. These types of investigations can make referrals. They can say hey. We think we found something criminal. But there will be no charges that come directly out of any of this and i think that's sort of the most important thing is is we were just talking about is that is that. Is there a larger sort of criminal problem here or this sort of resuscitation of a story that we sort of know the broad outlines of that. We're just going to sort of get more details on and that's really remains to be seen. The biggest witness said. I'm most interesting in hearing from and seeing whether whether this witness talks and in what way is the former attorney general bill bar go bar laughed a little bit more than a month a little less than a month before the end of the administration. I think bill moore had a pretty good political sense in a sense of donald trump. And he knew that this was going in a bad direction at the same time. He was dealing directly with trump on a lot of these issues between the election and the end of december and he used the powers in the justice department to run down and to investigate a lot of these claims and he realized that there. That trump was going to be unconvinced. No matter what the evidence was at the same time. Bill barr with someone that really you know. He may take issue with this characterization but really enabled the president and was a wall of the president's over his time as attorney general late dating back to the mullahs report. And how he basically managed the end of the muffler investigation and throughout bars. Tenure was really the attorney general that trump had been looking for on a lot of issues until basically he wasn't until the summer of two thousand twenty when that relationship really starts to fray. So will we hear from bill barr. Now how will we hear from bill bar and what what. This bill bar has to say. Bill bar famously. Saying the claims of the election being rigged were quote. Bs michael schmidt. Thank you very much joe. Wanna get your take on this column from michael gerson. He's got a new piece in the washington post titled why traditional conservatives should root for biden success gerson as you may know was a top aide to president george w bush and he writes this many of us not naturally inclined to support a democratic president have developed a rooting interest in joe biden's political success. This is not mainly due to biden skills or vision. It's because he is fighting a rearguard action to save political rationality biden treats. Voters has fundamentally rational beings who calculate what is best for their families and communities. His strategy carries the assumption of sanity by might have employed dynamite to solve jigsaw puzzle blowing up american politics and hoping that political pieces would come down in their proper places instead. It republicans have taken that approach. Donald trump did not carefully organiz troops for battle. He lit them on fire and hope they would run into enemy. Lines the collateral damage to our society norms and institutions. Means nothing to him so joe. This is not a you know. A broad support of joe biden's policy positions. This is a support by michael gerson anyway of sort of a resetting of political norms in the arab joe biden right. It's interesting Any was talking about sanity. And and for the most part george conway having a conversation with fellow conservatives lifelong republicans who've left the party since donald trump and we were bemoaning the fact that our choice now is between Party that that right now is pushing policies that we have obviously problems with whether you talk about the speedy withdrawal from afghanistan or bernie sanders three point five trillion dollar budget bill. That's going to be a reconciliation bill. That's on one side but on the other side for me it's not niceties political niceties. It's actually on the other side. You have a party. That's against western democracy if you're if you're talking about donald trump's party that elevates people like orbot elevates people that actually preys the end of liberal democracy and brag brags about being illiberal and so that's not really a choice at all is it. We're left right now. Really with with no choice but to actually be against the party that continues to elevate people like donald trump. Yeah absolutely i agree with that. I mean you know if the choices between what i think is excessive desperate deficit spending or a supreme court justice nominee that i don't like and the survival of american democracy. There's just no question which which side you have to come out on and what we're seeing. Today is a continuing threat to democracy. I mean the whole point of the the way. A democracy survives that people vote and they accept the accept the results and then they work hard like the devil to persuade their fellow citizens. That you know. They made a voter wrong last time. Come with me this time. I've got some arguments for you. The policy should be this or policy. Why should be that. That's normal democracy. That's the rationality That the columnist is referring to hear that the joe biden i think is trying to restore and right. Now you've got you know. Some significant percentage of the population who are now completely taken in by this big lie that the the election was stolen from them. And if you believe that while then you know instantly january six makes a lot of sense and now trump is is praising ashley babbitt in and lionising her. It's a terribly terribly scary thing and if it were just donald trump if it were just a couple of political acts in washington d. c. that we're blindly following him for cynical reasons that would be one thing but what we found at the election. Seventy five million americans who think that way and that our former party has been infected. We had republican congressman. Dan crenshaw for of texas no left-winger pretty darn conservative guy. Who's actually heckled at a fundraising event in illinois wednesday night for saying the twenty twenty election wasn't rigged. Watch this though. Get yourself into.

Well hey good morning. America and It's been a really. This has been a period of the last week. Dr chew and we started to see these inside accounts this one that we're focusing on this morning that rucker on and caroline is just just last couple of days have provided an incredible amount of fodder almost all of it in some sense confirming and making vivid making real a lot of things that were though that we all kind of felt in our guts. We knew through some reporting and we saw some contemporaries reporting but these guys have gone so deep now in to really kind of putting flesh on the bones to just how not just how what a perilous moment it was for the country and just how dangerous donald trump was. Those are the big headlines. Here it seems to me. What are you talking about the report from the same book yesterday. About about about the chairman of the joint chiefs and his concerns about reichstag moment. And now that these that once the the extra this morning almost a staggering. Mika as trump's total lack of care for mike pence and again we sort of knew he was. He was tweeting attacking at the moment. When pence was in physical mortal danger. We talked about this on the show in real time or shortly thereafter but almost a stunning. Is that in this in. This excerpt is another fact that we basically new but really co- comes through glaringly which is where is donald trump commander in chief whereas donald trump in the residents on the phone talking to military leaders talking to the national guard talking to anyone who where he could be of assistance in trying to quell this violent this violence as it was unfolding and said he's passive and both levels we see enjoying The site of his his minions acting wish what he would consider a strength and on the other side kind of acting with total human disregard for is completely loyal vice president for four years but just so completely disengaged from the most fundamental constitutional obligation that he had at still with that point for another sixteen days which was to protect the united states of america against enemies foreign domestic here the country that the capital was under siege by enemies who were domestic and donald trump is doing nothing nothing if anything making the situation worse all right. John mentioned part of the book that we told you about. Yesterday of joint chief chairman mark millions concerns about a possible coup by former president trump and his allies after the twenty twenty election yesterday trump put out a statement in response to those revelations writing quote and never threatened or spoke about to anyone aku of our government so ridiculous.

How much does this match. A lot of the reporting that you've been doing look in there was like sort of a classic trump response there as a way of taking a shot at nilly and also sort of you know throwing himself into this discussion about the coup in the way they did it. Was you know it reminds flashbacks. Trump tweets look. All of these accounts are really starting really scary because we saw all of us how close we came to the edge and what that insurrection was and how that was such a manifestation of everything that donald trump had done over four years. What i what. I keep on finding that. I think we sometimes forget or miss. Is that a lot of these people who know down themselves. In dangerous places like mike pence or others where people that for four years had been around donald trump. In new about his possibilities they were enablers of donald trump. mike pence help donald trump. Get out of the muller investigation..

"High that an entire section of the building right fifty five units if you look at the aerials guys cough it's a half the building's structural so you hope that there's going to be at least a more promising end to this where we'll have more recovery's more families. Reuniting tears of joy instead of pain but just based on what you're seeing the signs around here in the urgency with which these search and rescue efforts are continuing but that may not be the case. Yeah those pictures. Just take your breath away holding onto some hope at dawn yesterday. Rescuers found a woman and her son. We hope there are more of those stories to come. Nbc's sam brock on the scene for us there and surf side florida sam. Thanks so much. Rudy giuliani former mayor of new york. And one time personal attorney to president. Donald trump had his law license temporarily suspended by the new york. Appellate court yesterday for quote making demonstrably false and misleading statements. While fighting the results of the two thousand and twenty election. a disciplinary hearing has yet to be held. But the court said giuliani's actions representative quote immediate threat to the public noting that he helped inspire the capital riot and continues to allege voter fraud despite a lack of evidence. The court noted for instance. That mr giuliani repeatedly claimed tens of thousands of underage teenagers had voted illegally in georgia and audit by the georgia's secretary of state. Found that nut to be true. But mr giuliani continued to repeat the false claim. As recently as april twenty-seventh on his radio show the court said after a disciplinary committee had already petitioned the court to suspend his law license and after promising to exercise personal discipline. Former president trump issued a statement riding quote. All of new york is out of control. Giuliani can fight the suspension but may ultimately be disbarred joining us now new york times reporter and msnbc national security analyst michael schmidt attorney and former prosecutor david henderson and white house reporter for the associated press. Jinan lemere david henderson. I want to start with you and just in terms of what is this Step mean for rudy giuliani's career overall for his ability to practice law. Will he be disbarred and some might be asking. Why didn't any of this happened a lot. Sooner it's hard to know whether or not he'll be disbarred but we what we do know for sure is that this is a really really bad decision for his career overall and i don't think it's completely clear exactly what's going on here. Everyone knows you have to go to law school to become a lawyer. Everyone knows you have to pass the bar. Something people don't know. Is you have to take a class. In law. school called professional responsibility. You have to take a test which is a nationwide test. Demonstrating you understand those rules. You have to undergo a background check. You have to take ethics classes every year and the organization that gives you. Your license has to make a determination that you are. Basically morally fit to practice law and here. Not only is giuliani being accused of making false statements. He's being accused of doing it knowingly. And they said you know what we're going to give your day in court but the evidence is so clear you've been making false statements and it's such a danger to the public that we're also gonna take interim step of temporarily suspending your license with which is such an extraordinary. Step it lets you know that nothing. Good is coming him when he does have his hearing. All right for by the way for those who say giuliani was targeted. Because he was a republican. We note that bill clinton had his law license suspended in arkansas. For misleading statements about sexual misconduct makes misconduct Isn't this just a consequence of an attorney telling blatant lies michael schmidt but also asking you what the back story is here on the rudy. Giuliani front the former president. Put these lies out to the country. Many others did as well. Yeah i mean. This is a great example of how the certainly our system was not set up to hold people that we're going to lie so blatantly and so abundantly and so proactive. We you know. Efforts overture the election. There was just no real system setup to hold them accountable because here. We are six months after the insurrection. And we're seeing some significant action here. Look someone trying to take new york trying to take rudy giuliani's ability to practice law away from him but an enormous amount of damage has happened over that period of time and sure this may chill his abilities to do anything going forward but the seeds of doubt about the election are so long so d- and air or have grown and grown and grown. Since then that it shows how how if we were to confront a similar situation to this going forward. I'm not sure that anything different would be in place to try and stop people. I'm not sure you know it's it's you've seen these lawsuits that have come out in the months after but those were those were weeks if at the earliest likely often months after the lies had been told so the system here catching up to the wrongdoing and the line that had happened but much much long after the fact and as we know this this is going on while giuliani is under investigation by the southern district of new york in a very complex investigation looking at his ties to foreigners so this is just one aspect of his legal problems that he faces so jonathan. Lemaire obviously this is another chapter in the fall of rudy. Giuliani who was a celebrated federal prosecutor. In the us attorney's office in manhattan. Of course the mayor of new york city during nine eleven. What does this mean to the relationship. Though and really the job that rudy giuliani performs for donald trump. Because so much of this review we saw in the appellate court yesterday from the judge was about the things that rudy giuliani had done and said in pursuit of the big lie lying to courts lying in public forums lying in the media about what happened in the two thousand and twenty election. obviously former president trump came out quickly and defended rudy giuliani one of his closest advisers and friends. What does this mean for. Giuliani's role though going forward in terms of his relationship with trump will it so much of giuliani's career post september eleventh has been about this attempt at remaining relevant his own presidential bid of course in two thousand and eight flamed out pretty.
The Real Story Behind The Don McGahn DOJ Subpoena
"Great website. Theresa Munro Hamilton reports that the Department of Justice under the Trump administration secretly subpoenaed information. And former White House counsel Don McGahn, a Democrat. Rep. Adam Schiff, it was leaked to The New York Times, of course, seem to be falling apart. There's no real spying allegedly took place. The story was written by Michael Schmidt. He's a hack Charlie Savage, a hack. Reported quote that the DOJ secretly subpoenaed Apple for personal information on again and his wife in February, 18. And then barred Apple from telling them about the reported move during that time period under a non disclosure agreement. The devil appears to be in the details here, and this may not be the breaking story. The media are apparently running with Schmidt tweeted quote New DOJ secretly subpoenaed Apple for personal info of Trump's then White House done council dime again and his wife in February, 18. The O. J. Bard Apple from telling them at the time, But three years later, May 21 Apple told them. It's unclear what investigation it was related to Clarifying an interesting tweet was then issued by Savage. The co author. Quote, Apple recently told Don McGahn, Trump's former White House counsel. That the Justice Department had secret collected data about his account of a February 2018 subpoena. Caution. You can't conclude from this fact them again was intentionally targeted. It began was not intentionally targeted. Then the whole story is evidently not what was purported to be, You understand, folks. That is for investigating a leak, and there's a whole bunch of people that they're looking into. They're not supposed to investigate a leak. Apparently, that's the case, particularly if it That benefits the Democrats and hurts the country. The accusations do not go into detail about the DOJ investigation. It's unknown what federal investigators were looking into. Even if McGann himself was their primary focus, or whether it was somebody had contact with Apple reportedly did not inform again what they had turned over to DOJ. Report did state that Apple received them again subpoena weeks after another subpoena was issue that was connected to leaks and the Russia probe. The subpoena involves records belonging to California Democratic representatives, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell. Again. The subpoenas were ostensibly an attempt to identify individuals who leak classified national security information. During Trump administration and were not specifically targeting shift. So they're throwing a

Trump and his physician deny he had "mini-strokes"
"Into the mini stroke. Situation. And as I was recounting before we took the top of the hour break, I was prompting you to remember last fall. When the president had this little Walter Reed excursion. It was unannounced and remember. That Trump's White House physician, Dr Sean Conley, He hustled the president into a limo and rode with him to the hospital. Remember that? The one house said at the time that the weekend visit was to begin his routine annual exam. But there was another break from protocol because nobody at Walter Reed was advised that the president was coming and it wasn't on. Trump's schedule, typically any type of visit. It's on the schedule. The press is alerted, sometimes even a day in advance. And then nobody. Walter Reed knew the president was coming. So that added to the intrigue added to the mystery. White House pool reporters said that they were told that Trump's movements that Saturday was strictly One reportable. Quickly on reportable. Until he arrived at the hospital, so they weren't supposed to report anything until he got to the hospital. That was a 2 47 PM now despite the irregularities in the White House press office, they released a statement afterward. Saying that Trump was merely taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington to start his physical because he's anticipating a very busy 2020. Right. That's what the White House said fast forward. And we have a new book coming out. By Michael Schmidt. Of the New York types, not not Schmidt. But Schmidt. And that's a C H m i d t. And of course I'm s C h and I t t. And in this book, this Schmidt Dude reports that Vice President Mike Pence. Was told to be on standby to assume. Presidential powers during Trump's Rather abrupt visit toe. Walter Reed and Schmidt writes, quote this from the book. In the hours leading up to Trump's trip to the hospital. Word went out in the West Wing for the vice president to be ready to be on standby to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure. That would have required him to be anesthetized. Now, clearly if you just want to take advantage of getting a jump on your Physical. I don't see a need that the V P would have to be notified that he could be assuming powers. And why the hell would you have to be a anesthetized if you just pop it so things that didn't add up And now you have this passage from the book? And is this true or is this false? Based on what we know of the book at this point. Schmidt doesn't speculate. What procedure could have been under consideration. So if this is accurate, what the hell could have been going on? What could trump have been? So potentially under the need for anesthesia in what would potentially put Mike Pence. In the in the chair. A Zach Ting president while the president was under, for instance. What, So we don't know? We also don't know what his sourcing for the information about the hospital visit is But here's where it gets a little bit weird. That mortar the story your folks It's a little strange here. The response for President Trump. This morning. He denied suffering a Siri's of many strokes. And it's strange. Strange here. It's It's odd because Steve Schmidt or Ah, sorry, Michael Schmidt, rather Michael Schmidt in the book. Hey. Never stated that Trump had suffered any small or many Schroecksnadel. So here's the president denying that he suffered a Siri's of many strokes. Based on the details of this book coming out and the trip to Walter Reed, but No. Where did this Michael Schmidt bring up? Many strokes. Or TIA, or whatever. So Schmitz book doesn't get specific. But Trump did get specific. And this is what the president tweeted out this morning. It never ends. Now They're trying to say that your favorite president me went toe Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a Siri's of many strokes. Never happened to this candidate. Fake news. Perhaps they're referring to another candidate from another party exclamation point. I just thought why did President Trump bring up? Many stroke when the reporter and the author of the book doesn't make any mention Of a stroke or even suggesting anything close. So that's where the story gets a little odd that an hour later, Schmidt responded to the president in a tweet of his own and he wrote Book says nothing about many strokes.

Counsel's office told Mr Trump in late August about the whistleblower complaint explaining planing that they were trying to determine whether they were legally required to give it to Congress.

Rod Rosenstein, Mr President Rosenstein and President discussed on MSNBC Rachel Maddow (audio)
"If the president is still looking for a pretext to fire rod Rosenstein who of course overseas the Robert Mueller investigation. So if he was gonna fire Rosenstein, he could install somebody else in that job to try to make them Muller investigation. Go away more on that later. If that was the goal here, the declassification gambit does not seem to have worked. The president does not seem to have had the, let's call it wherewithal to go ahead without plant. That was this morning, and then this happened. Hours after the president climbed down on that declassification thing. The New York Times decided to do this quote, rod Rosenstein suggested secretly recording Trump and disgust, twenty fifth amendment deputy attorney, general rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record, President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos, consuming the administration. And he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the twenty fifth amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit. This article today from Adam Goldman and Michael Schmidt at the New York Times has led to exactly what you would expect gleeful insistent calls on the right, including from some of the president's closest advisers at the Fox News channel that this is it. Forget all of the other efforts. We've come up with the try to fire rod Rosenstein, these other efforts that failed forget all the other efforts that failed to create a pretext to fire rod Rosenstein. You can fire him now Mr President Rosenstein overseas. Muller investigation. You wanna get rid of the molar investigation. You got to get rid of rod Rosenstein. Here's your way to do it site. This New York Times piece and fire him nail. Rosenstein was going to, why are you? Why are himself? Why are other officials going in to spy on you in the White House? Rosenstein was going to organize the cabinet to use the twenty fifth amendment to out you from office. He was. Since the New York Times posted the story this afternoon, there reporters are definitely standing by what they have published, but both NBC news and the Washington Post published their own versions of this story. Which fundamentally contradict the whole point of the New York Times reporting. The times is insisting that rod Rosenstein seriously proposed wearing a wire surreptitiously recording the president inside the White House as part of a serious plot to prove the president's incompetence and get him out of office. The time says their sources for that information or people who were briefed on the fact that rod Rosenstein had said that to other officials and sources who were briefed on a memo that another f. b. i. official fired deputy director. Andrew McCabe supposedly wrote about this proposal from rod Rosenstein. Those are their sources. NBC news in the Washington Post, however, say, as of this afternoon that they, each of these news organizations has a source that was actually in the room when rod Rosenstein supposedly made this proposal and their source who, again was in the room, says that when this happened rod Rosenstein was quite obviously being sarcastic.
