"The 58 year old also thank his family and friends, and he said, I will have more to say about all of this. Next week. The X Garden state governor was one of several high ranking officials in President Trump's inner circle to be infected with Corona virus. Christy help President Trump prepare for the first debate against Joe Biden. Four days later, he Attended the Supreme Court Nominees ceremony at the White House Rose Garden before he and Trump tested positive for covert 19 called the Castro NBC News Radio New Jersey This is a co Moh afternoon news rewind with the White House covert outbreak spreading to the Pentagon and the Joint Chiefs of Staff working from home. What does this mean to our country? When our top military officers are in quarantine, we turn to retired four star general and military analyst Barry McCaffrey. For some insight, how might our adversaries take advantage of this situation? Sir? I think it's probably much less of a problem than one would anticipate. There was a predator event at the White House. In which the number two officer in the Coast Guard probably became positive at that event. Then he was in a tank session with the other chief. I know the army chief in particular is not positive, so they have gone back in the quarantine. They are still was fairly sophisticated Command control, encrypted means of continuing to stay in the loop. And we're well into the cove. It era anyway. Sean, enormous number thing in The Armed Forces Active Guard reserve. We've managed to sort out how to do these things and still prevent the rapid spread of this dreadful illness. Former director of National Intelligence James Clapper was saying, though that may be adversaries would particularly the adversary. Intelligence services could look for ways to confuse us or distract us during this well, there's no question they're at it. Whole time right now for the Russians in particular, But others also the Iranians, we say glimmers of of mischief coming out of the North Koreans will there will they not test a weapon? Somebody speculated. Will they crossed the border and do it land grab during the election to be blunt, Just take the North Koreans and example, it would be a nutter military disaster for the North Koreans to make. One overt act of aggression against South Korea and U. S forces, which inexplicably would be drawn into the start. It would end up with this chaotic Armageddon of a war at the end of which, in six months they'd be utterly destroyed. I actually don't anticipate any overt military capitalization on what is clearly in the United States, a disastrous political situation of angry people with a president who is incapable of Acting in a sensible manner. But do you think we're going to see influence operations and we're going to see mischief in cyber operations today? Michael Hayden, the former CIA director under George Bush, the former director of the National Security Agency and retired general came out in an ad warning that reelecting President Trump would be very bad for America and endorsed Democratic nominee Joe by. What are your thoughts on this, sir? Does this surprise you? Because Hayden Disagrees with Biden's policies, but yet came out endorsing him in an ad. Well, I've known Mike Hayden forever. He's an absolutely splendid intelligence officer on incredibly balanced, experienced public servant. I just have unlimited admiration form, and since he retired, he's identified as a Republican. I think his statement was profound. It ought to be listened to it joins Other statements by people like Jim Mattis and sort of offhanded way, But John Kelly General McChrystal, Adam McRaven J.

"This Senate panel that took place yesterday with the starring role going to Dr Anthony Fauci it's always he's always the star gazer and he says and there are romance novels now being based on him I feel like so in the store for the past couple months ray is America's new hero he's yeah and he's like captain pessimism pants rights this is the thing this the takeaway is you're all gonna die right when it was just fifteen days to slow the curb to curb or whatever we're supposed to do with the curve and now it's never ever leave your house ever right the schools never coming back we're all going to stay inside forever this is horrible there's the second way is going to be way worse hide your kids hide you why it's exhausting yeah and rand Paul you can tell it was absolutely sick and tired of all of it right away really Paul is a doctor and he looks good lately oh my gosh his beard right yeah I think so Mike Hayden Hey Hey Hey and he's already got such great hair anyway is it going Dr palm but now he's all furry yeah it was really between heats he saw Ted Cruz is it like you know is minus level go up he was like I see this level and I'm gonna raise you wimp though why press seven by with any warning three attack you from behind the Marlies he wants that so badly I'd be in your dreams anyway we do have a little bit of the exchange between rand Paul and Dr Fauci and then we've got some follow up comments either we can talk about that rand Paul made on the Martha McCallum show first let's take a listen so I think we ought to have a little bit of humility and and are on a belief that we know what's best for the economy and as much as I respect you doctor found G. I don't think you're the end hall I don't think you're the one person I guess to make a decision we can listen to your advice but there are people on the other side saying there's not going to be a surgeon we can safely over the economy to factional to bear this out who keep kids out of school for another year what's gonna happen is important for these kids you don't have a parent is able to teach them at home we're not going to learn for a full year and I think I got a look at the Swedish model we have a look at IT our kids get back to school is a huge mistake with all of the schools in the fall thank you Mr chairman can I respond to that even though they're only thirty two seconds left yes can you might make it clear whether or not you suggested that okay we shouldn't go back to school in the fall well first of all senator pull it thank you for your comments I I've never made myself out to be the end goal and only voices I'm a scientist position at a public health official I give advice according the best scientific evidence there are a number of other people come into that and give advice that are more related to the things that you spoke about the need to get the country back open again and economically I don't give advice about economic things I don't give advice about anything other than public health so I want to respond to that the second thing is that you use the word we should be humble about what we don't know and I think that was the fact that we don't know everything about this virus and we've really got to be very careful particularly when it comes to children because the more and more we learn we're seeing things about with this virus can do that we didn't see from the studies in China or in Europe for example right now children presenting with cold at sixteen nineteen well actually have a very strange inflammatory syndrome very similar to cover sake syndrome I think we better be careful if we are not cavalier is thinking that children are completely in the in the deleterious effects so we get your right in the mountains that children in general do much much better than adults and the elderly are particularly those with underlying conditions but I am very careful hopefully humble and knowing that I don't know everything about this disease that's why I'm very reserved in making broad protections all right so for god's sake just clear your throat already because I swear have a lozenge he send them along so Martha McCallum had free rand Paul on last night with her and he you know obviously she asked him about this whole exchange and he said and I quote is what rand Paul said to her I don't think any of these experts are omniscient I think they have a basis of knowledge but when you prognosticated but the future advocate for things dramatic and drastic like closing all the schools you should look at all the information yeah and so I am I right in their own way yeah right I mean it's doctor felt she the problem with doctor found here the people's reaction to him is that they do treat him as the end all yeah this is exactly what we've been doing and I don't like that I simply can't make decisions about the economy I mean he can say oh no I don't think I'm the end all be all but that is what we've been that's precisely what we've been doing we've been putting everything everything is been resting and what this guy says that's what that's that's exactly what we've been doing yeah and it and his is one opinion in a hole in a field of many and he's an expert on the health aspect but not the health of our country yes back exactly so I mean this needs to be sort of a team effort right well you think it would be but this is not what we're doing then we have absolute clowns like crazy liberal Amy Siskind on Twitter he said and I quote rand Paul just tried to play a doctor on TV and Dr Fauci is schooling him and exposing him as the fool he is yeah and people are like he is a doctor's gonna tell he is an excellent yes he said Dr wires a medical you have to have a degree and and yeah he also like founded a whole eye clinic and by the way he is a covert nineteen survivor yeah so he already had he's been through he has got as much say about this is anyone else athlete but the problem is is that people don't think that that people like him do you yeah and that is a huge problem it's not because people like Amy are sitting there you know but with the keyboard you know go in their mansions try to play a doctor on TV assets saying things like this and saying that you know that fell she is that is the end all be all yeah and that is a problem now it's one guy it's just one dude what we do and then there's plenty of doctors who disagree with how a lot but for some reason they're not getting air time yeah so what is that about earlier this week we had mentioned the fact that Chuck Todd had played a doctored clip or not doctored but edited clip of AG Barr's interview with Catherine Herridge reply us he lied and Chuck Todd cut off for it on his show on meet the press the interview was cut off with A. G. Barr right when he was about to do the things that Chuck Todd said he didn't do yeah and so there was a lot of outrage people were very upset at how Chuck Todd only show the partial interview and N. B. C. ended up having to apologize for that he didn't and then we and we talked about the fact that we never thought he would but he did offer an apology yesterday and take a listen before we go to break I want to talk for a moment about something that occurred on Sunday's edition of meet the press during the program we are sound bite from a CBS news interview with the Attorney General bill bar in the bike that we shared and commented on Mr Barr was asked how he thinks the history of his decision to end the prosecution of the former national security adviser Michael Flynn we'll be right Mr bar enter quote history is written by the winners so largely depends on who's writing the history and the full version of the interview and transcript he went on to say but I think a fair history would say that it was a good decision because it held up held the wall now we do not edit that out that was not already we didn't include it because we only saw the shorter of two clips that CBS there we should have looked at both and check for a full transcript a mistake and I wish we had made and one that I wish I had made the second part of the attorney general's answer would have put it in the proper context and I sing that part of the interview I would not a friendly conversation the way I did and I obviously I'm very sorry for that mistake we strive to do better going forward Hey Matt was doing the whole time which is hating every bit of it yet maybe you shouldn't it's like he's apologizing for not knowing how to journalism he's blaming it on the clips that were sent yeah from CBS yeah I'm sorry I didn't I didn't like the look at the the full clip it was cut off mid sentence yeah isn't that your job is to look at a full clip idiots just wow god is I mean this is journalism one oh why did people are just there to gather disagree it was just so funny to watch his face because he was so clipped and just so zero he is like he was so mad about it just in a Huff about he was such a like a little scorn girl about it I guess I mean it's more than we expected right I don't think he would address it at all I'm sure he was forced to do it yeah he was for his hand was force and you can tell I hope he's better prepared for his Sunday show this was fun to watch and.

"To to the local school system. This is one of the most oft repeated lies of the amnesty crowd. They say, well, we we just want to we just want to make the legal because then I'll pay into all these programs, right then. No, no, no. That's not what's going overwhelmingly illegal immigrants would oh nothing in federal income taxes if they were here illegally, they don't make enough money. They might pay some, you know, some taxes along the way, but they would be net beneficiaries in. In fact, one of the problems that came up with the gang of eight Bill for amnesty. Remember, Marco Rubio, and those other senators back in the Obama administration was that they wanted retroactive tax filing and illegals under that under. That system would have been getting a check. It'd be getting a check from the government for missing out on some of the largest from Uncle Sam that comes to you. If you make under a certain amount of money that they could be. That's right. They could be getting they would be getting paid for having been illegals here by the government. We have twenty two trillion dollar national debt. All right. That's from the Americans that are already here from system that we have the spending that we done mostly entitlement spending, some war spending to twenty two trillion dollars. You think bringing in more people who are much more likely as a percentage of the general population to be reliant upon welfare benefits about fifty percent. And by the way, the people say that illegal immigrants don't get welfare. They're all they just it's so hard. There's so many lies. Yes, they do all there has to be as one per if there's a household headed by run by a legal immigrants. There's one child that is born in the states who's a citizen then everybody else. In the household is going to benefit from the from the welfare payments to that to that child as a as a citizen child in this country. So and and the the adult in charge of them gets to apply for it. And there's a whole system just scam after scam after scam, and then all the lines around it. But. With the system overwhelmed. The way that it is the Democrats have no incentive to try to change anything. In fact, I think fourth fourth illegal alien in custody just passed away just died, and you know, what that's going to turn into that's going to turn into a rallying cry for people who are upset at how imaginations and customs enforcement handles those that are in their custody. They're going to say, oh, it's terrible. You know, remember, you had former senior government officials like Mike Hayden used to be my boss, the CIA comparing our border patrol, immigrations and customs enforcement agents to Nazis in the never abolish ice that was just last summer. So now you've had another person died. They're showing up in our system is not meant to handle this. They know that and they're showing up and he's very large numbers specifically. Because they know that they can't be processed. But because they can't be processed, and they also can't necessarily be given entirely adequate medical screening and medical care right away because it's not the Red Cross on the border, it's border patrol. But we're going to be told, oh, they're so nasty and they're terrible. And how could they do this? And all and all this other stuff. That's what they're gonna say. And it's just going to be an emotional argument. Bereft of reason. Don't.

"They declare the president is disabled, and I think if it's a case like a coma, that's really what it was designed for in. I don't think there would be much trouble there. So that part's reality the fantasy is well, the president is making weird decisions, and is is everything. Alright, psychologically, and we're not sure whether he's really thinking through this away, a rational person would Mike Hayden is made the case very well in his writings and speeches. This president is different than all others in that. He doesn't seem to base his decisions on objective reality. Something that's important to this podcast. Is you make decisions based on truth? And this president doesn't seem to do that. It's more instinctive. It's more. It's more gut reaction decision making. Well, is that a disability? According to the terms of the twenty fifth amendment. Some people have argued absolutely from day. One many people say you can't read that into it. That's where I think the fantasy is because the people least likely to judge. Well, his decisions are just kind of weird. The people least likely to say he needs to be kicked out are the vice president and the cabinet because it's going to look like a coup, and there's no way around that. So yes reality if there's a physical disability that makes the president unable to function it's a fantasy to believe that Mike Pence and a majority of the cabinet now. I did mention other bodies such that congress could designate that was in there. It's possible. Congress could designate itself as the body that has to have a majority vote to go along with the vice president it's possible they could create a group of doctors to be that group. But the one thing they can't get rid of his vice President Mike Pence has to say this president is unable to do the duties of the office. I don't see a scenario where that happens absent some kind of massive physical injury. Just look. And how many members of Donald Trump's cabinet have been willing to withstand incredible Beauce and stick it out. They'll just stay in their job. No matter what Donald Trump hurls, it them publicly insults them because at the end of the day, Donald Trump chose them. So do you really turn around and say, oh, this person who chose me for really really super powerful position?.

"Well, we aren't supposed to hear a lot for molar we're not expecting because we know that he is quiet, presumably heading in to the mid term elections, but we may continue to hear this drumbeat of his public service announcements from department of homeland security and others who want to ensure the election infrastructure. Another thing they wanna do Brian is to make sure that while people are maybe taking a second look at some of the ads, some of the memes are seeing online, making sure they know who's purchasing those and how they're being influenced. They also don't want them to lose faith when they go to the ballot box and November, they want everyone to know. And that was clear in this report today that the election infrastructure, what is actually in place to make sure that that vote that you cast is remains unchanged. They say that is not under threat that they have not seen clear evidence of that. That's something that I've heard department of homeland security, secretary Christian, Nielsen. Repeat again and again, but it is kind of enlightening. I'm like, Mimi, I, I wanted to pick this over and figure out why this woman. Why today? One thing I heard about the jurisdiction was that somehow an Easter district of Virginia, there may be a mini internet companies that are crossing through that. I mean, it's hard to know. She's not an American citizen, so it's not like they picked where she lives. There's something very interesting about the fact that it's eastern district of Virginia, this woman. So close to the midterms, there seems to be a message that they're sending. I just want to know what it is, Josh. Let's let's go down that rabbit hole this document. It explains the weird item that your aunt fanny sent you from her Facebook bead, feed about family families, being separated at the border. They're hoping it doesn't explain any shenanigans. We have four hundred thirty five congressional races in eighteen days. We've got local elections statehouses US Senate, and we better not see any numbers that as they come in, don't make sense to us. So is there any chance this document is a civic warning? I think that's primarily it's functioning here. I mean, there's some chance they're going to be able to pick this woman up somewhere. Maybe she's traveling somewhere or how to plan to go to Europe. Although frankly, I don't even know if you can be extradited on these types of charges from from most countries. So I do think the primary role here was to get this out in advance of the election as a reminder to people that this Russian operation is not a thing of the past. It is ongoing, but I think they're frankly is supposed to be a little bit. Of a reassurance here for President Trump that this is not officially a Muller charge as we were just discussing. It was brought by prosecutors in Alexandria, Virginia, and it suggests that this project of trying to rein in the Russians at least to the extent you can do it through the legal system is now going to be taken on by the rank and file bread and butter, prosecutors of the Justice department net, and that that Muller probe will eventually come to a conclusion. So Michael McFaul just to put a finer point on this for our viewers who may not get the mechanism here. Some of this was to criticize Marco Rubio. Some of it was to call the late Senator, John McCain and old Geezer. Some of it is just straight up racist. Some of it is anti LGBTQ. What's the goal there since those seem to be disparate topics not all associated on the right or left. Well, as the indictment says, the goal is to fuel polarization in American society. You can't do that if there isn't polarization already there. So let's be clear it takes the basis has to be there. I, you know, as a social scientist, we have lots of people here at Stanford studying this. I would like to actually dig deeper into it. I'm not so sure it's just about polarization and it could be more partisan, but there is a bigger issue here, Brian that we have not actually figured out where the lines are you quoted my former colleague Mike Hayden saying, well, an ad insert and the newspaper. That's what the Chinese do. That's above the the line is it? Why is it when Sputnik tweets hashtag crooked Hillary as they did repeatedly in two thousand sixteen? That's freedom of speech?.

"And again, this is really just a question of emphasis now and perception, but I don't want as we pay attention to the chemo dose. I that is important. I just don't wanna lose sight. And sometimes I feel like that could happen that we don't lose sight of the primary concern here that is threatening the patient's life in a fundamental way. As opposed to good faith. I believe good faith efforts to counter that toxic. But a lot of what you've said Jack, have you know, has sort of helped clarify that you're not trying to obscure or equate, or you know, lose sight of the horrific nature of the primary concern here. But that's, that's what motivates my perspective on this at some fundamental level. So I actually want to, if if I can make a stronger case for loud public, sometimes inappropriate statements on the part of the former intelligence community leadership, and I want to be clear that I'm doing it not because I necessarily believe what I'm about to say, but because I think it'd be useful to inject this sensibility into the conversation, but so I'll reserve ING. The question of whether I actually believe it, here's the argument, there is. In this truly extraordinary moment. The norm rules don't actually apply because the norms are predicated on this idea, not merely that the president is acting in good faith, but that the questions that we're discussing are factually and from a policy point of view reasonably debatable, and you know, John Brennan and Mike Hayden, they made some kind of commitment to be politically neutral. They never made a commitment to be neutral between truth and falsehood. They never made a commitment to be not outraged by, you know, abuses of their community and cereal lying. And so I have this part of me reacts to this and says, if that. Brings out a kind of pugilist stick instinct in some of them where they are as Bill. Buckley would say, standing thwart the tide of history and shouting. No, I'm not sure why I should be offended by that and the fact that it is done in this relentlessly nonpartisan fashion. That is, you know, it's sometimes it's John McLaughlin, and sometimes it's Mike Hayden and sometimes it's Brennan and sometimes it's Mike morale and they all sound. I mean, they're totally different because they're different people, but you can't really tell from the from the substance of what they're saying, which are Democrats in which are Republicans..

"It doesn't really apply. To me or or I don't think to John, I. You know, I've been eligible for access to classified information since September nineteen sixty three. So come on fifty five years now they've been intervals in there where I didn't have access. And that's the difference here. We left the government in January of seventeen still eligible, but we, of course, don't have access. So for me, it doesn't have a direct impact. It could on others depending on how this is applied. Well, that's the thing of real. I mean, the president is not just people who are out of government. He's certainly people who are still working in government, Br, Bruce, or is currently at the department of Justice. I mean, he scared Clarence that it's actually part of his job. I mean, I think actually the Bruce or piece is something that we should be focusing on. Because in my view, one should at least be raising the question of whether or not that's having chilling action on other. Employees of the department of Justice, for example, who are concerned about their security clearance being pulled because of the activities that are engaged in the investigations that they're doing that sort of thing that the president may or may not like. And I think it is particularly concerning. Not only are we undermining in a sense freedom of expression and is Jim, I think, rightly points out, we're not really thinking about the John Brennan's and Jim Clapper's and you know Hayden's of the world. But we're actually thinking about so many other career officers who may be formers, who are have a security clearance reliant in their job may be working in the defense industry for the broader defense of the United States government, but then feel chilled in terms of their speech. But then as you point out the Bruce ores of the world who that means that if they feel children in terms of their actions within their institutions could also be undermining the institutions and their ability to protect against these types of violations. On our principles, you're talking about people, you know the prisoners, saying, people are making big bucks. There are, there's there. Are many, many people, former intelligence people, former military people who work for military companies or companies doing business with the US government that do rely on having a clearance. And I mean, a lot of that is work, which does know whether you like it or not. It does. It is part of the US government. It benefits the United States, whatever whether you liked the policies are not part of our national security structure without question. At one point here to this discussion. As another. One of the enemy's list is Mike Hayden, and I would just point out that Mike's been out of the government for nine years. The has nothing to do with the Russian investigation in no way as he been able to officially touch that. So that just illustrates how political really this list is and has real correctly points out. It's particularly egregious with Bruce or. James Clapper. Thank you real hands. Great to have you on the program. Thank you very much coming.

"It undermines our security, and I think it's important that those of us who have had the privilege of serving at the leadership levels in the intelligence community call him to account this story that just broke tonight in the Washington Post. It says that the White House has already drafted documents revoking the security clearances of several other current and former officials who you'll remember when Sarah Sanders, I announced Brennan's revokation on Wednesday. She listed a long list of others which includes James Komi, Jim, Jim Clapper, and others. And according to the Washington Post that Trump wants to sign most, if not all all of them are just one more detail, the post reporting that the plan is to release these statements revoking those curated clearances at times when there are unfavorable news cycles to distract what's your reaction to this? Well, what we know is that the the state. -ment about John Brennan's security clearance being revoked was actually dated July twenty six and was issue just a few days ago. So clearly they had that in their back pocket. I don't know if they saved it for what they thought was an opportune time to distract from other from other stories, the Omarosa who's perhaps, but but regardless the the decision to revoke these security clearances has nothing to do with any of the people on that list that Sarah Sanders read out mishandling classified information doing anything that is in the the standards for why someone should it should not have security clearance. It is a blatantly nakedly political act and one that has the parts from from our nation's history. The president has characterized well, certainly John Brennan, and I can imagine he'll do the same for others as revoked them as partisans who are biased against him today. Perhaps belying the president's claim. James Woolsey also a former director of the CIA in the early nineteen nineties who supported the president. In fact, advise the president during his campaign. He released his own letter. Our understanding is that he would have signed onto the other, but he was not contacted in time. I'm just going to quote from the letter that he himself wrote on his own. He said that objective criteria should be used in evaluating who gets to keep security clearance. Does this belie the president's assertion that this is all about partisan ship against him as opposed to the facts. Look. I mean, I think the president has said, basically, this is about two things. One is to try to silence his critics. You can see from that list of people that they're looking at to revoke their clearances. It includes Mike Hayden. Now, Mike Hayden has nothing whatsoever to do with the Russia investigation, but might Hayden former director of the CIA former director of the NSA under Republican administrations has been critical of the president. The only possible reason that Mike Hayden is on that list because the president doesn't like the criticism that he received Mike Hayden. And then you have other people on the list that are in the president's mind somehow involved in the Russian investigation, like Bruce or. That is, I think the motivation here both to to go after critics and as a foreshadowing. I think to the folks on the Muller team that they also may have their security clearances revoked. It's a way for the president to shut down the Muller investigation by revoking the clearances of the prosecutors and the investigators, you've advised a president in time of war. The reason that former officials keep their security clearances is it so they can do the same thing when there's a threat. A Admiral mcraven, for instance, who's been involved in in many dozens of counter-terror rates. If for instance, this president was confronted with the possibility of another bin Laden raid. You might want to call up Bill mcraven. Is it a risk to US national securities damaging to US national security to in effect exile, these people with these expertise? There's a reason that that the tradition grew up that former director and former deputy directors and and former military officials like Admiral mcraven, retain their. Silence that's because the people who are currently holding those offices liked to be able to rely on people with experience with expertise with some historical perspective and to call on them for their guidance. That's a good thing. That's a good thing for our country is a good thing for our national security. If that is no longer available, it's it would be detrimental for sure. David going..

"The jersey demeanor and their notes that will come out with questions which could range from can we have pens and Apor to what is reasonable doubt mean anything in between? It's really impossible to tell their eighteen counts here. It's two separate schemes that they're going to really have to deal with. One relates to sort of tax evasion and one relates to Bank fraud. There are nearly four hundred exhibits. There were twenty seven witnesses, and so it's impossible to tell. I think the feeling after yesterday's closing arguments was that the government did a very good job of marshalling all the documentary evidence of showing the jury. Paul manafort's own emails showing his own knowledge of all of the events that are in the dight -ment of showing. Backdated documents fabricated documents, blatant lies knowledge about lies, and the defense tried valiantly to poke holes in that there wasn't a real coherent theme with the defense closing. They were able to to affectively undermine some of the points that the government made, but many were left untouched. So it could be verdict today, and we could be going deep into next week as well. It's impossible to tell, as you know, better than anyone to this table takes his reasonable doubt. Did the defense create enough, reasonable doubt and it's undermining of Rick gates. The star witness for the prosecution, making him an unreliable witness and someone the jury shouldn't trust. Well, they certainly tried what was one of the very interesting things to me was in the government's closing argument. They did not mention Rick gates for almost an hour. They just focused on the documents. And then when they did it was a relatively short period of time that was somewhat defensive. It was explaining why you don't just have to take Rick gates word for it. You should look at all the other witnesses and all the other documents to see if it's consistent. There was very little reliance on what Rick gates said. The defense tried to. They did a good job of attacking Rick gates as they did on cross examination. But what I thought was a little lacking is they didn't set up a scenario where they can could convince the jury that the jury had to rely on Rick gates. And so therefore the fact that he has no credibility would undermine the government's case. I thought they could have done a little bit more on that even though they did a nice job of demonstrating that Rick gates is not a credible witness. So then Paul Manafort is convicted here the maximum sentences hundreds of years. He won't get that. Where do you see the sentence falling based on the chargers in front of us here. So the federal sentences are are guided by by what's called the United States, sentencing guidelines, which creates a range of months that the judge then works off of. And I think in this case, depending on what he's if he's convicted and what of it would be in the ten to twelve year reign for the guidelines. But in many white collar cases, the judges go beneath the guidelines because they're somewhat inflated because they're based on the loss amount of the crimes. And so in white collar cases like this, which is serious conduct, I wouldn't be surprised if Manafort were to get sort of high single digits as a sentence. And then in federal federal prison, you get, you can get some credit for being a good citizen in prison and you get a reduction in your sentence. You know, I don't think this would be in and of itself a life sentence for Paul Manafort given that he's sixty nine years old for now, we sit and wait. The jury begins its deliberations just over two hours. Right now, Daniel Goldman outside the courthouse. Thanks so much. Daniel always appreciate it, Andrew Mitchell. As you get ready for your show today. I imagine it'll be focusing some on John Brennan and downs next out of this White House well, and that we'll be talking to John McLaughlin who was deputy CIO director and then acting director, and he and others are. Really concerned about a couple of things, but also to know Rothmans point. The fact that they have these clearances means that if there is an issue in Iran in Syria with ISIS with al-qaeda that had involved their work, these former officials can then be tasked by the CIA and they can be read in on the current intelligence very quickly. That's the point. That's why Mike Hayden Hayden actually set up this procedure where they keep their clearances..

"And we are back without two former intelligence chiefs general michael hayden and james clapper jim you have negotiated with the north koreans why do you think they making these gestures now it does seem as though they are reciprocating for what president trump has done for them which is you know quite remarkable concession on the american part which is to have a summit to have to meet with the leader of north korea on a wonder one co equal basis freed i think the principal reason that they've had this change in behavior and demeanor is because they have achieved in their own mind a degree of nuclear deterrence that will enable them to come to the negotiating table not as a supplement which has been the case when in our previous engage engagements on on the subject of nuclear capabilities that and president moon who may be one of the it's not the most astute president of the republic of korea who has i think expertly managed his account in up to to his north with kim young men and his account in washington and he has fostered bringing together this summit near quite right this is a great a tremendous concession our part for the president is states to sit down across the table with the leader in north korea this could be very useful thing as long as our expectations are not too high i think there is value to meeting and greeting and gripping and grinning but importantly having an opportunity for from the horse's mouth so to speak first time ever from the korean leader what is it it would take for them to be secure enough to feel secure enough they wouldn't need nuclear weapons mike hayden isn't it fair to say that the president has set a pretty high bar which is this deal has to be better than the iran deal and the iran deal got rid of all our no nuclear weapons it god rid of any plutonium pathway cement whispered into the conga the it's the core of that reactor ninety eight percent of an enriched rene uranium has to go away inspections from between fifteen to twenty five years in every element of the supply chain if you have something less than that it's stuff to call it it stuff to see how president trump consign that is remarkable and i i think.
