"Back senator. chris murphy from connecticut. He is a member of the senate foreign relations committee. In one of our favourite people to talk to on the show centers gracie again. It's up guys. Thanks for having me so Let's start with the the big news out of iran A scientist named most seen fucker z. Day an iranian nuclear scientists was assassinated last week reportedly by the israeli government I've seen you tweeted. Your reaction to some of this. News has been updated at all by any additional information. You've gotten gotten a briefing from the administration. Like what is your sense. So far of what happened. In what we now we have not received any briefings from the administration as of yet As as you both know it is unlikely that anything like this happens. Without knowledge likely united states approval and perhaps united states participation. There's a good reason why we don't assassinate foreign leaders because when we engage in that kind of it ultimately lens an authority to that kind of action that can ultimately boomerang on the united states. It was a reason why we pressed the israelis to forgo these kind of actions during the years of the obama administration. And if if this is really about trying to tie the hands of the obama administration with respect to reentering the nuclear agreement. it's absolutely disastrous Because there is no paths away safer middle east without our ability to restart at least some elements of that agreement and so we don't have all the full details. We have not been briefed inside congress about this but if the united states had something to do with this is going to accrue to the detriment of america's security both in the short run and in the long run so on the idea of of i share. Obviously your cynicism when there's somebody that we've known about for twenty years and he just happens to get assassinated a few weeks before a new president takes office. Mix you ask questions about the timing but You know we see not only this nation. We've seen a lot of sanctions added on top of the existing sanctions. That had been reimposed ron because of The trump to lead the jcp way. It feels like they're just throwing up as many obstacles as possible to returning to the to the deal itself at the same time. I know there's going to be pressure on the new administration to not come back into the jcp way unless iran agrees to negotiate fall on agreements. If we're just looking at the potential for a clean return the routings come into the jc. Puree america comes back in a you know. What do you think the appetite is in congress or that what. What is a current support for just no follow on agreements have to be added to this. There's an understanding that some of the sanctions that have been imposed on top of. This may have to be relax too. Because they're additive to what was part the jc puree is there. Is there support in your view in congress for that kind of clean return or do you think congress is gonna seek to put itself in the middle of the policy. And and try to put conditions on the administration to to add. Add bells and whistles to the agreement. I don't think the dividing lines on this issue. Have fundamentally changed over the last four years. I i don't think that there are democrats that supported the epa. That now would draw a new line. I also don't think there are a lot of convert star side. I don't think there are likely many republicans that have changed their mind. They want all of these issues to be litigated. The problem for republicans is that they have now had four years to test their theory of the case right donald trump came in obliterated the jcp away And articulated the republican case. Which is that. We should ramp up sanctions sort of blow past the levels that were in place prior to the jason momoa as a means of getting the iranians to come to the table on everything and mike pompeo wrote down what everything was right. He had these twelve demands of the iranians. Get four years to affect this policy. And he didn't just fail. Pompeo failed miserably right. Not only did he not get the iranians to the table on any of his twelve demands. The iranians got closer to a nuclear weapon. There now two months away rather than twelve months away. They started shooting american troops inside iraq. Something they weren't doing when donald trump took over and so well republicans are going to object to getting back into the deal. They really don't have a leg to stand on because we've tried their way and it didn't work so i think the support exists. Certainly the democratic party for biden to reenter the agreement Remember there are two sides here and the iranians are also going to ask for more right. The iranians are gonna say. Well you know we. We want reparations for all the damage done to our economy once you walked away and you know we shouldn't be willing to agree to that but we should also just understand that. It's not just the united states that's going to be driving a hard bargain. If we're back at the table with the iranians they're going to be driving a hard bargain as well. Yeah so you mentioned possible Us knowledge of or participation in this assassination of the scientist so this question is a bit in the weed. So i hope you'll endure me in my like wikipedia level knowledge of these issues but the us government banned political assassination. In one thousand nine hundred seventy six. It was executive order. One nine five by president. Ford was raining in some of the worst excesses of the intelligence community in the fifties and sixties that yo- was updated a couple times by carter in by reagan to ban indirect involvement in assassinations political sassa nations. So my question is is killing a scientist a political assassination. Like what category does that fall into in therefore would it be illegal under. Us law to be indirectly involved in killing this individual in iran. Yet and an entire podcast on the on the law of of assassinations. Because you're right. It is an executive order. Interestingly though it is not a statute congress has actually never waited on this question but it has been a long standing executive order that has been reaffirmed by republican and democratic administrations. I think the answer. Your question is of course. A scientist is a political figure because in this case there are very few political appointees in iran who matter more than the chief nuclear scientist to this guy didn't sort of rise through the meritocratic ranks. He was appointed by the political leadership endorsed by political leadership of iran. A political goal which is either the effectuation of a civilian nuclear program or the ability to ramp that up into a pathway to a nuclear weapon. So i don't see how you could make the case. And i'm not sure. The trump administration we try that this wouldn't be banned under the existing executive order so one of the dynamics of this estimation of course is I think all of us would assume you know. There's an israeli role in this. In in some fashion these rallies have not been particularly subtle about. You know not sending that signal and we talked before on this show about saudi arabia. You a the. Us partners in the region who've kind of felt obviously very emboldened under trump. i noticed your complaint Last night on twitter around the briefing received about the massive arms sale to the u. e. The f thirty five one of our most sophisticated pieces of machinery reaper drones which can kill civilians in places like yemen where the emirati have been engaged in a war the last few years to for destructive purposes This was not a part of this. Bosch announcement of abraham accords which was cast is a peace agreement most peace agreements Don't come with under the table. Massive sales event. Thirty-five reaper drones. And there have been reports even as recently as twenty four hours about the u. e. even supporting proxies against the wrong people in libya. What is your concern about this arm sale and i the most important question is is biden. Unhook for this. I can't congress. Can congress play role here. Do you think the due administration should pause this or this kind of committed on behalf of the us as a part of this abraham accords formula and and the emirati is gonna put that in play.

"And i'm quoting here. Trump has given some of his most hawkish administration officials particularly his top diplomat. Mike pompeo carte blanche to squeeze punish the islamic republic as aggressively as they wish in the coming weeks. All trump asks is that they don't risk starting world war three as the president has specifically put it in several private conversations with pale and others according to two senior administration officials. Now i believe this quote about pompeii. Oh because we're we've been watching this action. Basically since pompeo entered this administration. I have some doubts about the veracity of the world. War three section quote. I don't doubt that trump said it. I doubt that he meant it. Because trump does not want to be blamed for starting world war three because that would entail responsibility but would he welcome a situation. He can spin as having no choice but to pursue world war. Three by quote striking back. Yes he would with that. Allow him to carry out. Long-held desires like using nuclear weapons which we've documented extensively on this show and in my articles. Yes it would with this war. Cause chaos for the impending biden administration or even be used as a pretext for trump to stay in office under an emergency decree. Yes it would. Is it possible that iran will finally strike-back with their most likely response being a cyber attack. Yes and here. It's important to note that. The trump administration rewrote the nuclear posture review in two thousand eighteen. So that he nuclear weapon is now deemed inappropriate response to a major cyber attack and they continue to label iran as the main cyber adversary of the us. So yes this could mean war. A war conducted by variety of dangerous actors for a variety of horrific reasons. A war in which ordinary iranians and americans will suffer most. This is another war we do not want. These are all worst case scenarios and hopefully they will not come to pass the given that nearly everything that transpired since twenty sixteen is a worst case scenario. That did come to pass. Nothing should be ruled out. It's surreal that we started twenty twenty with the assassination of soleimani. Who is of course. The top general doron a beloved figure a charismatic leader. I think whether it's biden or trump in the white house i think iran's gonna be Determined to avenge that assassination. I do think that's puts even bigger target on debt to america in the years to come so even though the assassination sola adds a whole new layer of uncertainty which of course opens up potential floodgates to war a symmetrical warfare. Like like you mentioned the cyber attacks. I do still think that there is leverage for the incoming in administration thanks to all of the crippling sanctions that trump has imposed on iran which of justice decimated the economy iran The value of its currency its oil experts. All of it. When obama successfully led the negotiation of the iran deal and sanctions on iran. Were lifted for time. Obviously under obama you saw celebrations in the street. People driving their cars and caravans like cheering out the windows. The people of iran or desperately herding and on top of that you have this pandemic and there are one of the hardest hit. We saw that very early on in two thousand and twenty with videos of a top iranian officials sweating on camera. Because cova did they were released from the first governments One of the first governments that lost people in top official posts to kobe. Nineteen so ron is greatly suffering and so an incoming biden administration can bring back the iran. Deal saying okay. Commit to those terms we already worked those out Slowdown your nuclear activities. And if we can get this all hammered out will of course roll back these sanctions so with iran. I think there is a possibility. They're turning of the page for them. One they desperately need for the sake of their own people. And i know you might think a well. Why would a dictatorship care about its own people. It's because they ian people have been leading protests Before the pandemic and protesting their government and so they need these sanctions lifted for the sake of stability of the country and the regime. It's a desperate situation on the ground there. I think more interesting question for. Us foreign policy is what the biden administration what their relationship will be like with israel currently in israel the current ruling coalition is falling apart. It looks like israel's headed to a new election in early twenty twenty and as we know the hardliners in israel hate iran deal hated obama. There's a lot of tension between obama and y'all whose government and trump was like a giant flowery fruit basket for netanyahu's government that y'all who had a really good for years under trump and putin when he was campaigning again there's a giant billboard a picture of him shaking hands with putin so he enjoyed this Axes of autocrats. Netanyahu liked trumping inspiring. Autocrat there's been a really disturbing editorials coming out of israel of netanyahu trying to steer israel towards autocracy being very corrupt. And of course he and his wife were both indicted It's amazing that he's been able to survive for so long. So i think the question really remains on how biden comes in cleans up the iran mess that trump left behind and in doing so. Where does that leave his administration's relationship with israel depending on who is in charge in israel. Netanyahu may very well be on his way out which would be a great thing for the biden administration. I believe given how hard line. Netanyahu is a great thing for the israeli people. Yeah if netanyahu leaves as prime minister the entire world will benefit like you can see this turn towards hard right governments. That's you know. Been in play for about ten to fifteen years you know. Israel was one of the oldest examples of that when netanyahu came in and in two thousand nine. And you're even seeing the kind of things that you see with Autocracies things like brain drain where israelis who can't abide living under him who can't abide extreme human rights violations. I think especially after twenty fourteen in his actions in gaza. They're leaving leaving out of conscience. They're leaving out of a desire for freedom. and we also see. I believe it's week. Twenty three of protests from israelis against netanyahu and netanyahu is one of these key nodes in this transnational crime syndicate that we talk about. He's i think just as essential to it as putin they love to say all roads lead to putin and generally speaking they do. But they also lead to netanyahu they lead to n. b. s. often lead to air. John you know there are a variety of actors. They're under netanyahu. israel has become a paradise for money. Launderers we see a lot of oligarchs people like ramon abramovich getting israeli passport so that they could avoid the kind of sanctions that have been put in place due to things like the magnitsky act you know we see this very fluid use of the right of return in order to allow criminal elements to thrive with netanyahu's protection. That used to be something that israel rejected back when meyer lansky tried to get israeli citizenship. Golden my ear was like you know the hell out of here like this isn't going to happen. Netanyahu welcomes these folks with open arms. And it's extraordinarily dangerous..

Can we talk a little bit about the role that the World Health Organization and China have played in this? They've never been honest with the outside world related to this, they're still not being honest. And yet President Trump when he points it out, somehow is the background In a time of crisis.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo briefed NATO counterparts on plans to withdraw troops or rather thousands of US troops from Afghanistan by mid January. That move could leave Allied forces vulnerable on the ground. Was Teri Schultz tells us from Brussels. The US provide security and logistics that other countries can't replace. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg won't directly criticize the Trump administration's decision. But he, along with other allies have made clear their deeply uncomfortable with the unilateral move to pull thousands of troops out of Afghanistan. There is a price for staying longer, but there's also a price for leaving too soon. Whatever we decide, we must do it in a coordinated and orderly way. The alliance is due to make a collective decision about whether to continue the mission in February. We're now well, I say they expect the U.

On top of that. The California policy lab says 166,000 residents will lose extended unemployment benefits at the end of the year when a provision in the cares act expires. Simultaneous end of both programs is expected to be a double whammy, cutting $173 million of federal funds from flowing into California's economy every week.

Israel's Netanyahu reportedly met with Saudi crown prince in historic first

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secretly met with Saudi Arabia is Crown Prince in the kingdom Sunday, according to three Saudi government advisors, their first known meeting Made US push to normalize ties between the long time foes. The Saudis and the Israelis met Sunday. Without the Palestinians involved in the negotiations Contrary completely contrary to what Senator what secretary state then 2016 John Kerry said. Saudi Arabia is denied the meeting took place. Israel has not That's that was the headline yesterday. Wall Street Journal. Now, September 2020 this year September of this year, Israel has signed a new peace agreement with the United Arab Emirates at the White House. That's you, eh? Another Saudi country without the without the Palestinians involved whatsoever, signing a peace deal at the White House with the Israelis. Two examples. John Kerry was completely wrong. And the current secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, was instrumental And being a negotiator, a moderator, a go between in both sets of negotiations. It can happen. The Palestinians do not have to be involved in any negotiations, and John Kerry could not have been more wrong about it in 2016, and that may be very well. The reason why he was not chosen to be secretary of state again and is now overseeing climate change. Yeah, he's going to focus on climate. Well, that's according to Joe Biden, but that's maybe one of the reasons and that's why we wanted to roll out that audio clip because he did not read the room at all in the Middle East properly.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency

"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

Trump Administration Labels Movement To Boycott Israel 'Anti-Semitic'

"Martin. The clock is running out on the Trump administration. But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is making pro Israel policies that could last after he's gone. Pompeo has spent a couple of days in Israel this week and in areas under Israeli occupation, which is a controversial move in and of itself, and he is stepping up U. S support for Jewish settlements. That could complicate things for the incoming Biden administration. NPR's Daniel Estrin joins us Now from Jerusalem, Daniel Good morning. Good morning. So, as you know, everywhere, a top U. S official goes in the Middle East is seen as symbolic in some way by some party, Which is why these itineraries air so carefully planned. Having said that it with that context, Where has Pompeo gone? A lot of symbolic places. First of all, he visited the museum affiliated with the U. S evangelicals, and he was the most senior U. S official to visit the Golan Heights, which Israel annexed from Syria, and most countries do not recognize that but the Trump administration has. He also was the most high that the highest ranking U. S official to visit an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. He visited an Israeli settler winery, which has a wine label called Pompeo. That's an honor of pump. Oh, saying that Jewish settlements in the West Bank are legitimate. Now. Activists point out that the vineyards of that settlement winery are on lands that Palestinian land owners say are there's Thea's Railly, who runs the winery lives in a home on a Palestinian landowner's property, they say, so there's even an Israeli demolition order on on that home. And the bigger context. Most countries say that the very presence of Israeli settlements on occupied land violates international law and hurts the chances of Palestinians being able to establish their own state there. But Pompeo signed the winery guestbook, referring to the West Bank by its biblical name. He sees this as the land of the Bible, and there's speculation he's thinking about a presidential run in 2024. So perhaps these visits can help him with evangelical voters. It's not just where he's going right. It's what he's saying to he's announcing new new policies. That's right. He made two new Decorah declarations. He said that a pro Palestinian movement to boycott Israel is anti Semetic. Now, most or many U. S. States have passed laws against these kinds of Israel boycotts and some boycott supporters. Say that Israel should not exist as a Jewish state boycotters say this anti Semitic label is wrong and an attempt to delegitimize a nonviolent protest in support of Palestinians. Of the second declaration that Pompeo made is that when the U. S imports products like wines, for instance, from Jewish settlements in the West Bank, they must be labeled as made in Israel. Now the West Bank is not Israel. Israel has not officially annexed those lands. But here again, Pompeo is siding with the Israel's claims to the land. So how how is all this going to box in the incoming Biden administration? Pompeo is clearly trying to cement you know his view and the administration's view of settlements before leaving office, And this does point put Biden in a bind. One Israeli settler leader compared it to chests and Pompeo declaring check. So now it's Biden's move. He has opposed settlement expansion, and if he reverses these policies that could lead to tensions with Israelis. Of course, Pompeii was not the only one trying to influence the Biden administration. Now I should mention that Palestinians themselves are taking steps to create warm relations and the Palestinians just re established security and economic ties with Israel that could Be something that buy them would would recognize and and

Donald Trump refuses to concede defeat

"The last few hours. The people's republic of china has congratulated. Us president elect joe biden on his. Victory last tuesday's this means that the list of nations still reserving judgment has dwindled to russia brazil north korea and intriguingly mexico. Mexico may just be passed. Caring trump himself maintains that he has been deprived vase second term by some monstrous fraud although the most dogged of his attorney rudy giuliani have unaccountably failed to furnish any evidence for this assertion as we go to air. I'm joined with more by scott. Lucas professor of studies at the university of birmingham scott. This is now a near clean sweep of recognition of president-elect biden from abroad. Is that having much impact. You think on american domestic politics well. Donald trump is dog in to The bunkers constructed inside the white house. And as far as i know he ain't coming out anytime soon. and even if it's now His friend vlad moscow and his. Flynn mr bolsonaro in brazil. That are the only ones left enabling that no it doesn't affect domestic politics because far more important than the foreign signals are those from within the united states and while a lot of republicans are privately concerned About the damage. That's being done to their party. Let on the. Us system by trump refusing to knowledge. President-elect biden you're still looking out officials within his administration who enabling him like william bar who's politicized the justice department to inquire into the election light. Mike pompeo who's politicized the state department to talk about a second administration. And most importantly the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell who has given for now support to this trump effort of throwing mud at every courtroom courthouse wall across the united states. Hoping that one case can make it up to the supreme court. I mean it's been a patent we've seen over the last few years and we've talked about this a lot. The idea that these will that the strange spectacle of these extensively sensible respectable republicans indulging enabling and excusing donald trump. But the has at least before now seemed a rationale to that which is that. He is the president of the united states. He does lead their party. And that's the way for them to get things done but the position. He's now wait in the last few hours. Arizona has been called for biden as well. If i've done the maths right. Even if trump's somehow clothes back pennsylvania and georgia which seems fantastically unlikely. That still won't be enough anyway. So those enablers do they genuinely believe any of this and if not where the what do they think. They getting out of another two months. You know that. That's a great question. And i don't think anyone beyond donald trump and maybe a couple of believers around him you know. Put any stock in the idea of fraudulent stolen election. And i don't think anyone everybody else can read the out that you so adequately summarize that you know. Joe biden is up by now sixty thousand votes in pennsylvania. He's likely to hold onto his lead in georgia. And if even if he lost us to stage right. Joe biden still has two hundred seventy electoral votes but the calculations were be different depending on who. You're talking to so for example. If you talk about mitch mcconnell. I think he's still relying on the idea that he needs to get those two senate seats in georgia to have a fifty to forty eight majority if he loses them both. The democrats have control of the senate. So he's going to ally himself with trump to make sure that you get high voter turnout amongst the trump. I if you talk about. Ted cruz. Lindsey graham marco rubio the senator who all have presidential ambitions in two thousand twenty four. They all push trump's conspiracy theories and disinformation because they see trump is being important to their political futures in other words beyond donald trump in this election is the long-term question of trumpism. The republican party. It might be a fractured republican party. But there are those who still see trumpism as being essential to their political futures. And that is what is really damaging corroding the american system short term interest versus. What should be the wider interest of an administration to deal with corona virus the economy and wider issues. President trump has been doing an amount of warning on twitter over. I notice from his feed that he has not yet got up and running today. And it's now just past seven. Am in washington dc. He has not however a spoken at least in public for a few days now. Is there anything in particular. We should infer from that. I talking talking. He doesn't want to admit he's lost. It and trump needs a rally. That's what trump feeds on so just simply going out in front of the reporters right now and you know telling them that their fake news. That's not what he wants. He wants to get that ego soothing balm of those people who will sit there and applaud him with make america. Great again now. They're interestingly enough. There is a gathering of pro-trump gathering in washington dc. Tomorrow it has not been sanctioned by the local authorities. but would it be the case that donald trump's suddenly makes us reprise appearance in front of them. I wouldn't rule anything out. But i think beyond that marcus that the the question here is that we've got some trump advisers who may be telling him. It's time to step aside. But if he steps aside there's already talk that he'll then immediately declare a run for president in two thousand twenty four and there are other advisors who were supporting like rudy. Giuliani which says keep fighting. This whichever camp has favor with him. At the moment there is this real protracted battle over what trump does in the next few weeks but what he does over the next four years and that means that for now he may not make cards tips and as it were publicly. scott lucas.

Former Homeland Security aide on delay in presidential transition

"With plans to take the reins of government in January, even as President Trump continues to refuse to accept the election result or let the federal Government helping the transition. This was Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Yesterday there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration. How damaging what any transition delay B to the incoming Bite administration. We ask Fran Townsend, CBS news analyst and former homeland security and counterterrorism adviser to President George W. Bush, save the General Services Administration is the primary interlocutor if you will, on behalf of the current administration to the incoming administration. To provide office space and budgets and that sort of thing so that they can begin to organize themselves. All those things are, as you say, necessary components to allow the incoming administration. Hit the ground running immediately upon inauguration Day, because there's no delay in terms of their own responsibilities, sounds and helped in the transition from the Bush administration to the Obama administration. W T O P National security correspondent J. J. Green says the transition dispute gives America's Adversaries a national security opening. Well, if I could only say on the radio some of the stuff that I've heard I've spoken to diplomats from a half dozen countries in recent days, and they Are legitimately bewildered. They have never seen anything like this. Some have actually equated this toe watching, and this is embarrassing a third world dictatorship that's imploding. That's what top national security officials both former and current or quietly talking about this embarrassment. Also, the important thing to keep in mind is that the world's problems Which the U. S plays a key role in solving are not stopping. While all this plays out, J. J says the U. S may not even be able to detect some national security threats right now because of all the confusion over a transfer of power. New tonight.

"But I guarantee you that once they had that precedent of compelling companies to go along with this they will a guy like bill and his Justice Department will stop nowhere in wanting to get into people's phones. It is not worth the cost of people's privacy and civil liberties for the additional convenience for investigators have an easier way into people's funds yes Let's talk about Mike Pompeo for a bit so late last Friday night. President trump fired a guy named Steve Clinic. Whose State Department Inspector General in the latest Loyalty perk that's happening across the government so for listeners. Inspector General is supposed to be an internal watchdog within the executive branch within the agencies. They are political appointees but they operate independently. They often get tips from whistleblowers about corruption or mistakes from mismanagement and they're supposed to work with the agencies and with Congress to investigate the incident and then make them public it's a position that was created after Watergate as part of those reforms so recently trump has just been systematically removing these I G at criticize him and replacing them with in this case we know that Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo asked trump to fire Olympic. The State Department I G so POMPEO did interview with the Washington Post. He said that Lennox work with somehow undermining the mission of the department but he didn't explain how trump was later asset a press event why he fired clinic and he said. I don't know I don't know anything about him. So really a compelling. So ben here's some possible reasons pump hale may have wanted him fired first. Win was reportedly investigating whether Peyot had improperly used State Department staff to. Do you know personal errands. Like pick up his food or dry cleaning or like his dog at the groomer literally the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman. Eliot Engel said he had asked clinic the I G to investigate whether POMPEO had improperly sold billions of dollars with a weapons to guess who the Saudis. So we're going to buy one. But regardless I mean trump is required to notify congress about the removal of an I g and provide a detailed justification for it and has not yet done so so then. Let's there with the allegation. That POMPEO was asking staffed. Just do personal errands for him because some people might hear that in think like what's the big deal. He's a busy guy. Lots of people ask their assistant to make a reservation at a restaurant or whatever the issue is when you're talking about any federal employees it is illegal so it's a big deal. A whistle blower told Congress that POMPEO's diplomatic security agents call themselves ubereats with guns because they're constantly asked to pick up. Mike takeout orders on Monday. Trump was asked about these allegations. He said quote. I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than having washed dishes because maybe his wife isn't there so just bringing some blatant sexism into it bringing the patriarchy yeah This also dovetails with broader criticism that we've talked about before that. Pompeii was misused. State Department resources by taking three official quote Unquote State Department trips to Kansas. When he was considering a run for a Senate seat there so then you know two questions about this piece of the story. How big a deal do you think these allegations are in? And why do you think Pompeo seems to be able to whether these kinds of abuse of power allegations when other cabinet officials have been fired pretty quickly? Well first of all just the fact that you would remove the inspector general because the person who runs the State Department doesn't like it kind of runs completely counter to the spirit of having inspectors general like the people who get investigated. Don't get to decide that they no longer would like to be investigated I look. I think that there's a clearly at an issue of of Pompeo essentially kind of personalizing the use of State Department resources. That is troubling. Look any any buddy who runs. The State Department has the basic tension of the fact that they're they're running a large sprawling government department not unlike the Pentagon although not as big with mostly career people career civil servants and farm servants. And they're supposed to be a line between you know someone's personal or political interest and what that large department is doing and with pompeo. Everybody can focus on the streets with guns. I think it's the broad pattern. Essentially of he's using all these different resources to fly himself to Kansas or taking his family on trips. Or Yeah maybe having. These people do errands for him. I don't think that's the issue here. In fact I think pompeo wants to make that the issue. He tweeted some picture of himself with his dog is much more dangerous and unethical behavior. That was likely being investigated and POMPEO. Trump would be happy to have a good old argument about whether or not. It's okay for you. Know some diplomatic security agents to pick up dry cleaning from Tayo and complain about liberal bed. Who Don't like that I so so I think it's problematic but actually don't think it's the core issue here and I think the frankly Pompeii or would rather have an argument about whether people walked his dog then have an argument about whether he basically broke the law to expedite billions of dollars in weapons deliveries to Saudi Arabia over the objections of Congress. So let's talk about the Saudi thing then so I agree with you like the Saudi arms dealer issue is much bigger deal so here. Here's a quick story. Last year POMPEO was working on a deal to sell eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia in the UA. But there was bipartisan opposition to the Saudi peace of that sale because they had just murdered a journalist named Jamal Kashogi and because the Saudi led war in Yemen had become a humanitarian disaster and these arms were probably destined for that theater of war so by Lottie executive branches required to give Congress thirty days notice about their intent to sell arms to a foreign country during that time. Congress can block the sale. So what Pompeo did you reference was really shady. He declared a national emergency which allowed him to skip the congressional review process and fast track these arm sales so he claimed the emergency was a threat from Iran. But you the way you know that's bullshit because some of these weapons weren't even ready to be delivered for a year so some emergency there so now. I'm no expert in arm sales but some experts. I read suggested he might have broken a couple of law. So I there's the Arms Export Control Act two pieces of that I. He went around Congress which is legal in second. You have to ensure that the arms are for legitimate self-defense reasons and it's not clear that they were also may have violated the Foreign Assistance Act. Which says you can't sell arms to a country to be human rights abuser and there was this big piece in the Times over the weekend. But how jared Kushner and like a right wing you know White House Economic Advisor named Peter Navarro have been pushing arm sales as just solely jobs program right like these guys have no foreign policy experience interest in you humanitarian or diplomatic impact. It's just about like the defense industry and Mark Asper. The Secretary of defense is a raytheon former raytheon lobbyists so then Obama oversaw a lot of foreign military sales right including so the Saudis. The Times piece noted that Obama average thirty six billion a year in arms sales during his second term trump has averaged fifty one billion a year. So it's huge increase so like you know back to what you're getting Alec. How big a deal do you think this emergency declaration is by Pompeo? Is that end run around Congress and then how is this arms sale process supposed to work so I imagine you were in a ton of meetings where these were considered and vetted and either approved or not? Well yeah first of all. I think there's normally supposed to be a process right. Where essentially the State Department has to license an arms deal Going forward right and this can be in. Many cases can be a fairly routine exercise. Right where Defense contractors or you know working with foreign governments and then the State Department is licensing and arm sale. It's notified to Congress. Congress has a period to raise some objections. If there are foreign policy considerations that come into play then this might get discussed in the situation room. Sometimes there weren't sometimes this routine but for a relationship like Saudi Arabia and certainly with like a hot button issue like Yemen. It's a kind of thing that would go through an interagency discussion process. Should this go forward but then it still has to be licensed by the State Department and notified to Congress. What is so notable here? Right is is first of all. They've gotten rid of any pretense that this is anything but a corrupt enterprise in the sense at Raytheon depends on Saudi Arabia for a significant chunk of its business. The former top lobbyist at Raytheon is now the secretary of Defense of the United States. Donald trump when asked about Saudi behavior like the killing of Jamal Kashogi or the killing of tens of thousands of civilians in Yemen consistently says well they're giving us a lot of money so they're not you know they're not hiding the basically the priority here is the Saudis write checks and their sell them weapons and if those weapons are used to kill children and innocent civilians they could care less what what this introduces the further point. Though that they basically blown up the process including the legal process. They're supposed to go through. And so you have a situation where trump is ignored repeated and veto repeated congressional efforts to stop these arm sales to Yemen then. He ignored the requirement to even notify. Congress anticipating the objections he get and essentially trumped up a fake emergency. Because there's no emergency today. The situation in Yemen situation with Iran has basically been an escalating mass for years. There's not any reason that this is now. Suddenly an emergency. The only reason to do that would be to avoid that congressional scrutiny and it just sounds like since. Pompeo took over the State Department. They've got into the State Department's normal process of reviewing these things so we we have the fact that there's a fundamentally corrupted relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia. We have the fact now that they are basically ignoring any kind of process that they are supposed to go through their legally compelled to go through in order to move forward with an arm sale. And it makes you wonder what might inspector general discover if he started poking around? What kinds of conversations has Mike Pompeo had with people? Where does he directed people to do? Has He directed people to violate laws or protocols? What possible corruption might there be between trump officials and the Saudis? You know what is happening. Is there a whistle blower who might have some awareness of the corruption between a jared Kushner or Mike pompeo and the Saudi government? Because the the the hard truth is no matter. What the Saudis do no matter? How bad this war in. Yemen goes the arms sales just keep increasing and no matter what the congressional scrutiny right so clearly. Pompeo minimus flouting what he should have been doing as normal process and notifying congress. The question is just how nefarious it goes. Yeah we have not heard the end of this story. I mean it sounds like this spectre general might have been at the very end of his work on this exact investigation into this arm sale. So I'm glad that angle is is sounding the alarm. Hopefully we learn more information soon. Because you know that's a big problem. Yeah and look angles been pretty cautious member of Congress. I would frankly like to see him. Be More aggressive about these things. I'm glad he's doing this but you know like this is. This is one of the biggest unanswered questions of the trump presidency. Just what is going on between them and the Saudis is there. Money involved is a real estate dealings involved. Are there promises about a post-presidency windfall for the trump family involved? What the Hell is going on? Because it is not in America's interest to be shoveling these weapons out the door to a country that is using them to bomb Yemen into smithereens. Kill all these innocent civilians and not achieve any of their stated objectives with respect Uranian influence..

I think An and rex working on this When he was at the company and we continue work on that we step back and look at First of all we're in the in the business of meeting society's needs We recognize that one of the needs is less carbon intensive energy sources. And so we look at where today are hydrocarbons used. And what are the alternatives available and how Sufficient is the solution set and we see significant gaps in commercial transportation power generation and industrial sectors. And so we're working on technologies to help close that gap or working on carbon capture and storage to use power generation using industrial applications. Were you looking at new materials? to redesign manufacturing processes to take energy and heat out of those which then reduces the matter greenhouse gases. We're looking at bio fuels which are energy dense that can replace Dent Diesel so there's a lot of work that we're doing that we think can contribute to that space but it will require a technology Advancement and breakthrough to ultimately get to the stage where we can Reach the size aspiration of eliminating co two emissions. Kind of talk to you just about Corona virus. I know that Exxon Mobil Lee has the tenth largest travel budget of all the companies. That we we kinda follow out there. Have you guys been cutting back on travel as a result of what we're here we have? We have actually Because of our long history of operating a Lotta different locations around the world you think about a bowl. Think about SARS your these are all things that are corporations had to deal with the different times and so we have a pretty robust protocol in place that we exercise we find ourselves in a situation like we are now the criminal buyers we executed that very early on which means cutting back discretionary travel and means folks moving into their homes work remotely. We've we've geared up our workforce so they can do that effectively reduce the number of people coming into our facilities so we implemented that very early on Tab. You've got long ago when when I came out we we set the ESPN. And then what happens as we find that krona buyers breaking out in different locales locales? We will stand that. Espn system up. We've got about fifteen hundred employees and China about seven hundred fifty in Italy Another one hundred twenty five or so And Korea South Korea and so All this protocols have been put in place and very pleased to say we have not had any employees have been impacted by the current virus. Has It affected your operations at hasn't affected operations. We do some of our customers Particularly in China have pulled back and so that that meant less product demand We have Fab yards constructing materials. Things slowed down so there have been slowdowns. I would say and some of the work that we're doing but we're actually seeing that pick back up again and I I know you're not a variety Or even an economist for that matter but your gut feel as a CEO who watches the numbers on a daily basis. What what's your best. Guess about what happens to the global economy. We're expecting to see something where we have a dip. And we'll see that kind of expand around the world we have. We saw the dip initially China. We're starting to see. The rebound my expectation is and those low cows where you see that kind of contagion spread that we'll see that dip but then we'll see a fairly quick rebound. That's interesting when we had Sam Zell yesterday here who said he thinks The Energy Patch is a great place to be investing and he said by the way everybody else already invested in. It is in the position where they can't invest a whole lot more because they are underwater on so many the is when you look back and you look at these companies like Sam Zell who is I- i- conic the all these companies. Make a ton of sense but we're in this. Es investing phase where anything with any sort of harmful carbon footprint or any chemicals as being thrown out and when you look at the seven percent yield the stocks down twenty eight percent year to date and everything in the energy complex has been underperforming not for this year but for the last five years. Can't live without this stuff though. The Globe doesn't continue to turn. Tito's is warning customers about using vodka vodka to make homemade hand sanitizer in a tizzy air responding to several inquiries on twitter. The company said per the CDC Vodka does not meet the alcohol requirement needed for hand sanitizer. Sixty or seventy percent alcohol at least to kill the virus according to the CDC. Tito's is like forty percent or something so probably it's probably been ninety. What's appropriate is the ninety percent or whatever it is really forty is eighty proof and one hundred proof is is really strong fifty percent alcohol. So you need seventy you beat the virus with any of the Pure L. or any of these things you have to have like sixty to seventy. That was a problem with with kids putting their hands in their mouth after you put pure L. on them. I remember that when my kids were younger. We didn't want before it before it dried up.

We are now not not going to hit. What's the hold up and killing really address this without many many more testing kits? So I'm involved in the testing gets directly. I'm trying to work on the things outside the United States to make sure we get right there. You hear about it but I've seen I've certainly seen the work that's going on trying to get the private sector ramped up to get the rate right so that we can do all the testing. That's needed World War card at that. We have taken this incredibly seriously. We'll continue to do that. The testing kids are one element of America's effort to reduce testing hundreds of thousands of people. And we I was at the original or you're not a next. I don't know if you're the person asked but it was the original agent from the CDC that they didn't realize was wasn't didn't work properly. I'm not the right person to ask. I'm not I've not been involved in hard. I love it but you would concede that something that that we gotta get it. We've got to get it right. We got your. Here's something you might be able to to address in that. Is I am hearing from UNICEF the Restaurants Union. The restaurants are there's people in restaurants where it almost looks like. China has had some success in in dealing with this capping it. We would hope that that can happen. In other countries around the world including the United States. But we're told that we don't have the same type of capability to quarantine people because we're not authoritarian. Is the Chinese governments as the Communist Party. Could we have a similar success here with our civil liberties that we take for granted? I'm confident we can handle here. I'm confident we'll handle it. Better than any nation in the world I I'm happy you complement of the Chinese Communist Party today but remember this. This is John. Corona virus caused us the information that we got at the front end of this thing. wasn't perfect and has led us now to a place where much of the challenge we face today is put us behind the curve. And that's that's not that's not the right it's not the way infectious disease doctors. Tell me it should work. It's not the way. America works with the transparency and openness and the sharing of the information that needs to take place It has proven incredibly frustrating to work with the Chinese Communist Party to get our hands around the data set which will ultimately be the solution to both getting the vaccine and attacking. The Chinese government is is now pushing back in again eunice. Yoon has been reporting some of what they put in the state run media where they say that. It's not clear that this even came from China at this point and they're mad at the United States for not thanking them for the efforts. They've taken to try and slow it down to this point. What are you saying? I'm happy about the efforts that they have taken but no less authority than the Chinese Communist Party said it came from Wuhan. So don't take Mike Pompeo's word for it We we have pretty high confidence that we know where this began and we have high confidence to that. There was information that could have been a male.

"So this week. The House of Representatives should be transmitting articles of impeachment to the Senate Secretary. POMPEO is of course right in the middle of that scandal as well. Have you gotten a chance to speak with him or anyone inside his administration. Since all of this testimony began to come out in November from people who worked closely with Pompeo on what was happening in the Ukraine. I have not spoken to him But I you know I have spoken to people in inside and around the State Department and I think it's impossible to see The Ukraine scandal as it has morphed and unfolded as has not having a major impact on his political future You know before all of that It seemed very clear that he was headed towards running for Senate in Kansas in twenty twenty You know a as the first step in trying to set himself up to run for president in twenty twenty four. The Ukraine scandal has really had a deleterious effect on his Running of the State Department on Morale Inside the State Department and I think in many ways has tied his his future so inextricably to Donald Trump himself that Mike pompeo ultimately decided not to run run for the Senate and is going to stay on as secretary of state. And he you know. I think that there is no who future for Mike Pompeo That is not aligned perfectly. With and as a key member of the trump administration we were talking about how Pumpido has really consolidated power. He's installed allies all over the administration but consolidating power like that. It means that when things go wrong he also have the full responsibility. Yes that's true if you admit that anything is wrong and You know I think that sort of part of the wonder of the trump administration is their ability to no matter what happens wins Declare victory and say that this is exactly what they intended all along so the key question has become will people like secretary pompeo actually testify when this trial moves forward in the Senate. I wonder what you think secretary. Pompeii oh the witness would even look like. I don't think we have any idea What Mike Pompeo As a witness would look like in part because I would imagine that there is no one less likely to testify then. Mike Pompeo That you know I I. I'll bet donald trump himself would testify before Mike pompeo would And that's because for pompeo there is absolutely absolutely no upside to participating in this impeachment inquiry in any way I you know I. It has already already mind his moral moral authority within his own building and any attempt Any testimony that it opens even the smallest crack Between him and the president would go against every impulse that Mike pompeo has has had since the day that he started the administration. There's an irony there where it's you know. Mike pompeo made his name in the Benghazi Investigation Russian. Talking to Secretary Clinton this is sort of the the oddest irony of the this whole saga.

Out at dover air force base race meeting with the family of the last soldier first class beretta. I met his lovely wife two boys eleven and four <hes>. It's precisely those moments that make you recognize so clearly.

She'll know over over fifteen years to actually sit at the table together talk about the path forward in a more peaceful way. I was just going to say it's it's.

"Oh that's not the first time this is the rand paul was no what's happened at other nominations happened on the tax bill rand paul takes a moment to express his views his problems with whatever the nomination or the bill on the floor is and then works to get assurances as he said i think to get a phone call at a meeting with mike pompeo and suddenly receive assurance to say yeah the iraq war was mistake i'll get it we'll get out of afghanistan soon enough and i don't believe in an interventionist foreign policy to just to get his vote i it shouldn't be that easy but that's what it was we're going to interview and talk to rand paul in just a few minutes on this show at least you worked for random basely you know him very well what was his game here does he actually believe that suddenly pompeo has flipped on these core issues well he received reassurances but also spoke to president trump and john kelly and perhaps an executive order down the line to fix some of the warrant problems with feis say is a trait potential trade off that he's is hoping to receive but i think the real gang changer was that mike pump heo is really running point on talking to north korea and senator paul is a strong supporter of talking to north korea and taking every measure sort of war before there is a war and so i think that it really changed the calculus for mike pompeo's nomination when the white house emerged with the news that he had been in peon yang over easter joe was part of the president's strategy he said why sending my pompeii over there you festively showing and saying to the senate into the country this guy is already performing basically the duties of secretary of state let's make it official.

"Just in years this white woman standing up for herself with life liberal mini telling her has a thinking how to act right and she's she's the enemy she's she's the one being demonized it's absolutely amazing listen murphy i appreciate it buddy i got some more breaking news it's somewhat break and you know that we're we're trying to get mike pompeo confirmed as secretary of state rampal apparently has come out and said he will support pompeii oh he's been one of the most staunch republicans against that says he will not vote for pompeii but he is now turning over a new leaf apparently which will probably help get mike pompeo confirmed because somebody's promised him something while the the margin of victory was was not the margin of victory but the vote was going to be razor thin as to if he gets confirmed or not because the obstructionist democrats they wanna confirm anybody they want trump wobbling around wounded and not have his full arsenal at his disposal that being his cabinet but mike pompeo is going to be a a good secretary of state i do believe jonah's next what's up john well i got three thoughts they should absolutely confirm mike pompeo is totally qualified the next thing that young lady she needs to check her pockets before she does laundry each.
