Why We Need to Fund, and Not Defund the Police

"Katie king and the San Jose spotlight June 26th, 2020, congressman Khanna, explaining that police officers are a necessary part of society, Khan has said defunding the police didn't mean disbanding law enforcement altogether. But the representatives said it was time to examine whether funding is being appropriately distributed among police and other social services like education and affordable housing. Okay, that's two years ago, right after George Floyd, two years later, we have rising crime terrible, terrible crime in the inner city. Don't we need more funding for the police police as opposed to redistributing their funding? Yes, we do. At a meeting with the police chiefs in my district in San Jose and Sunnyvale and Fremont, about a year ago, we've got I'm sure you've read some of these terrible smash and break in crime smash and grab prime. And they said, we need more police. And I agree with that. And I think we need to uphold the rule of law. Not for ruining a young person's life if they break into a Walgreens, but I'm also not for you can do that and not have accountability and do that three, four times. And not face prosecution.

"Well, let's get to the place of whether you think some form of affirmative action is that an president Kennedy coined the phrase is worth valuable or not. And I guess my view is that we should have an intentionality of giving people opportunity who have been deprived of opportunity, but that intentionality, as I write in the book, should not just be for black and brown America, there should be for a large part of the rural communities and other parts of America that have been left out. I say, look, we ought to have some requirement that 10% of these tech workforce are from rural America to get preference on federal context. But I do think that we ought to have an intentionality of trying to get opportunity in the communities African American communities Latino communities that have been left out. And I'm sure we disagree. Well, it's unconstitutional. As John Roberts, the chief justice said, the way to end discriminating on the basis of the race is to end discriminating on the basis of race. And it's in the concert. That's what the Fourteenth Amendment is about. It's so deeply. You can go get the rural grants. I'm all for that. You can do the top 10% of every high school get into college. There are lots of ways to avoid using race. It's just race can not be used anywhere anytime neither ethnicity and very rarely gender, because our constitutional law is rather fixed. It's a fixed star. And I thought they thought con lot Yale. Yale. Did you have a meal? I had Bruce Ackerman. I don't, but he's a good con law teacher. So you forgot. You're skipping over the inconvenient part. Let me go back. I got to ask you a family question. Your parents are from the Punjab. One of the most difficult areas in the world. Who do you think the Punjab ought to have been assigned to at the time of the partition of India? Wow. You know, my grandfather has spent four years in jail with Gandhi. And so the Indian independence movement is a big part of my family. I mean, look, in retrospect, I think what would have been better for the world is if there hadn't been a partition. And if there had been a South Asian nation. And by the way, that would be better for the United States because our alliance with India in my view is critical to prevent China from expanding. And what China is doing is aligning in part with Pakistan and that creates greater complications for us. But it's in the United States interest for the, for India and Pakistan to deescalate to not have the tension and for us to focus on the real challenge for the United States, which is China. Well, I agree with all that, but should putting job be unequivocally within the country that is now known as India that is not going away. And in Pakistan is not going away. Should Punjab should we make it a part of American foreign policy to declare firmly and finally the Punjab is in India's land and it's not changing. No, because that would not be in the American interest to get the weight into that. I mean, Pakistan would go crazy. If someone were to say that. And it's in our interest to have a strong alliance with India, but we also don't want to antagonize Pakistan where we push them into China's quarter. And ultimately, you know, I was born in Philadelphia in 1976, our bicentenary and I'm very proud of my Indian heritage, but I am will always call balls and strikes for America first. If I've criticized India for not condemning Putin, for abstaining in the UN, what are they doing? Especially when a year ago, we came to India's defense in the border skirmish with China. But this is where this is where sometimes the progressive left leaves me quizzical. We have to defend boundaries that are defined by international law. That's why Ukraine has to be defended by us, even though they're not in NATO. That's why we have to come to defensive Taiwan. And it's why we have to settle the Punjab border. Because you can't buy force alter these things. And unless until the American nation left right center and everybody declares boundaries or boundaries and international law applies, we will encourage the attempts to unsettle job and for the Pakistani militants to take it. Well, look, if the Pakistan invades in Kashmir, which is the more problematic area, then I think obviously the United States should come to India's defense. And I think India, I don't know how you feel you, but I think India is going to be one of the most important allies for the United States and the 21st century Vis-à-vis China. So it's certainly in our interest to build that alliance. I just don't think we want to wade in to a border dispute that both sides can resolve..

The Meaning of Racial, Education Equity

"I got to argue now with you about education, racial and gender equity. Let's start. What do you mean by equity Congress? And I'll let you explain it rather than quote the book. I mean, inequality of opportunity to have a dignified life. And my view of the country is one of the big problems is there's $11 trillion that has piled up in my district because of innovation, entrepreneurship, globalization, at the same time, we ship jobs, offshore, to China, millions of them. We ship jobs, south of the border, because of nafta. And a lot of communities in this country rural communities, communities in the Midwest, black and brown communities have been left out and their kids are being told to leave their hometowns, they don't have opportunity, economic opportunity. And so we've got to bring new economic opportunity to people and places left out.

CNN+ Struggles to Lure Viewers in Its Early Days

"You know, CNN plus has failed miserably. They have 10,000 subscribers. Why do you think that is congressman Khanna? Why is CNN plus failed? I think, you know, starting out something new is challenging. I think it's online is still not how we consume news. People still watch television, they listen to talk radio. I was always a new medium. But I think it's too early. It remains to be seen whether they'll succeed. You know, maybe they should hire you, you know? I think the reason they failed is because there's nothing for me to watch. There's absolutely no reason from anyone from the center right to go on there in the way that, for example, CNN used to have crossfire for O'Connor and U had sat down every day. We'd mix it up, but there's none of that and in fact, I think it's the last real news show. The only one I do on TV anymore. I've left NBC. I don't do meet the president anymore.

Should the Dollar Be Displaced With Criptocurrency?

"What do you think about just simply saying, no, you may not take your massive market dominance in these other areas and create crypto domination and displace the dollar while you do it. We may have a disagreement here. Look, the United States dollars, 51% of world currency. The cryptocurrency is less than 1%. And the idea of displacing the dollar, I think, is never going to happen. And in our lifetimes, in fact, the new cryptocurrency is the stablecoin are all actually marked to the dollar. And the fed chairs how they said that we may even have a digital cryptocurrency, just to keep in advance with technology.

The Right, the Left, and the Ideological Bubbles

"Right, now you're a progressive from Silicon Valley. And I've been up there. I've had dinner with Mark Zuckerberg at his house. I'm one of the token conserves that show up there and talk to people up there occasionally. And I think dignity in a digital age may be the best case for the progressive agenda that I've read. I'm not persuaded. But I'm curious if the, if you agree with me, I think that the overwhelming oppression of the left in Silicon Valley means conformity and thinking that it drives out center right points of view. Do you agree with me that the mind think up there is a deep blue bubble? Yeah, I believe in this country. We have a problem that we're all in our bubbles. And that we're unwilling in certain cases to subject our ideas to scrutiny. I think that's a problem. At times on the left, I think it's a problem also on the right. So, you know, I think this cancel culture and goes, in my view both ways. You know, there was my Alma mater. Yale law school, I was embarrassed that there were students yelling down the speaker because they had a conservative point of view. On the other hand, the idea that, you know, you don't read what they Toni Morrison's beloved, who was one of the great American writers, objectively taking from faulkner. I think that's also silly.

How Relevant Is the Hunter Biden Story?

"Every book has a compound fracture in it. And since I read books closely, I always look for the compound fracture, and then I step on it, congressman, yours is on page one. Here's on page one 97, I quote. It's about Hunter Biden. When you talk, although I am convinced there was no truth to the salacious allegation Hunter Biden's emails themselves referencing his father were of public interest. Of course they were, but you don't believe any of the salacious allegations about Hunter Biden still well, first let me say how I took a pretty unpopular position. I did that before the election and saying that those things shouldn't have been censored that the idea even that the New York Post links were being taken down was wrong that in a robust First Amendment tradition like ours, people in the public sphere that their information should be public. And I didn't think that the personal life of Hunter Biden was relevant, but I thought that the information that in any way was about a President Biden was

Should Apple Have a Master Key to Our Phones ?

"You know congressman is the terrorist attack is unspooling. There are names and contacts on that phone that we have to know before they flee the country before they kill other people. I don't even know how we have a debate about this. I don't want to give him a key to everybody's phone. I just want the attorney general to be able to have the back phone or the bat signal to go out to Tim Cook and say, we need to get into this iPhone now and get a response. Is that really the same thing that you're talking about? Well, how would Apple do that? Unless they had a master key. Now, I think there are solutions for this Israel, for example, is extraordinary in the intelligence that they have. And they're able to unlock phones because they're intelligent agency actually has figured out how to unlock things. And I rather that we invest in that kind of technology in the United States and eventually people are able to unlock these things rather than saying, okay, Apple, we need you to keep a key that can get into everyone's phone. What happens if someone breaks into that key? I guess that to me is the danger of requiring that app will be able to break into any phone if there's a violation of law or

Tim Cook Misses Obvious Point on Antitrust Laws

"Trend. What did you make of mister cook's speech this week? I respectfully disagree. I mean, my view is that we definitely need stronger antitrust legislation. Now, I'm not for breaking all these companies up reflexively, but there are a couple of things that are common sense. One, they should have some limitation on their ability to just acquire competitors. The whole idea of a free enterprise free market economy means that you have to have competition and some of these companies have just acquired their competitors. So there needs to be restrictions on mergers that are anti competitive. Second, they shouldn't be able to put restrictions on their own platform in ways that discriminate against sellers. And what a number of these companies are doing. And so I think that there needs to be an antitrust remedy to that.

"And we've shown that we can do that. Do you miss Congress? You know, I miss the work, as chairman, I have to tell you as an FBI guy guy that served in the army when they asked me to be chairman of the intelligence committee, which oversees all 17 of our intelligence agencies and budget of about 70 some $1 billion at the time was the unclassified number. And everything from space to human collection to how we were doing covert operations around the world. What a huge highlight. The problem with Congress is that we ended up spending more and more time not being members of Congress and being, you know, political torch lights, if you will. And people got rewarded for that. It became, you know, how many likes do you get? How many, how much social media activity gets you attention? And that part I don't miss at all and candidly, I don't think it's good for the country that we continue to focus on those things. We have huge problems to fix in the country from border security to actually literacy in this country. We're still graduating people from high school. They can't read past the 6th grade level and we're wondering why we can't compete in the world. All of those challenges are going to be hugely important for the future prosperity and security in the United States. We focused on that that of all the other be great and Congress would be great. Let me finish by asking you congressman. It's a year since Afghanistan fell apart. The president announced the withdrawal. It's been a year. We now have another intelligent series of surprises in Ukraine. We thought we could deter we did not deter integrated deterrence failed. Is the intelligence community fixable? I mean, do we ever not get surprised? Well, remember, intelligence is a thousand piece puzzle and their job is to collect as many pieces as they can and then give you an analysis and analytical look, if you will about what that picture looks like. And so sometimes there are spot on and sometimes they just don't get it right. And it's never going to be perfect. I do think the way they've changed politically the way we collect and assemble and analyze information, it needs to be re looked at. There needs to be a very hard conversation amongst ourselves as Americans and with our intelligence committee about what their form and function is to make sure we don't miss it. And by the way, the Russians got it wrong too. Did they ever? Oh boy, did they? And so I think, you know, listen, you can't always rely on intelligence alone, but had we reacted when we knew that they were coming over. They got that part right. In a way that was, I think, a little bit more aggressive meaning. The quantity and quality important quality of the weapons going into Ukraine would have been really important. And by the way, we had it right in Afghanistan, the intelligence community had it right in Afghanistan. The president and the policymakers just didn't listen. I mean, everybody was saying, don't do this. Intelligence we're saying, hey, this is going to be a disaster. And guess what? It was. And I think that's going to be a scene in our national character for some time. And many, many results have coiled out from that. Mike Rogers, good to talk to you again, chairman of the center for the study of the presidency in Congress from her senior member, a chairman of the House Intel committee, always good to talk to Mike Rogers. Thank you, Mike. Welcome back. I'm here with you. Live inside the beltway. Standing by for congressman ro Khanna. Oh, he joins us. Good.

"Going forward? Well, I certainly think the animus of the debate in America contributes to people who are always right on the edge. I think unfortunately there's going to be a lot of folks that would fit his profile who could be violent, have had some violent interaction in their past who could absolutely flip this switch and decide that this is the way to go. And remember, everybody is feeding us social media is feeding this. He's feeding himself. He's on YouTube postings, people are reacting to that. And so all of that just feeds into this fragile psyche of someone like this who clearly has some mental health issues to actually take this next step. And so I think it's a combination of all of it. You know, we in America don't seem to like each other very much right now and we're very fond of telling each other that we don't. And I think that all feeds into the psychology of someone who's right on the edge. You know, I think there are two bell curves in America. Democratic bell curve in a Republican bell curve. And they meet in the middle at the tail of the left side of the Republican Party and the right side of the Democratic Party. But mostly at the tales at either end that I'm worried about. The far right and the far left. And I think they get way too much attention, Mike Rogers, way too much attention. What do you think of the center for the study of the presidency and of Congress? Do we pay too much attention to extremes and not enough attention to the normal people are going about their normal lives? They're not very interesting from a ratings perspective, but they actually represent the vast vast majority of Americans. Absolutely and completely true. Even our political process starts driving people to the right of the left. How many times have you heard people say, well, I'm not exactly a fan of extra Y, but they're better than the other guy. And so we don't have a good representation of the vast majority of Americans who still believe that this is a pretty amazing place. I mean, you can be your own person in your own way and do your own good. Really only in a place like America and most people get up every day believing that the problem is that social media that loud, very right, very left conversation makes you think that, boy, this is just a terrible place with nothing going on for it. And I have to tell you, couldn't be further from the truth. America is still a strong today as it has ever been. Yes, we have challenges. Yes, we had difficulties, but I will tell you, when you start thinking about the promise of America versus all the other trouble in the world, no place you'd rather be than here and it's about time we start telling people and reminding people, hey, this is a pretty amazing place. Spend some time trying to fix the problems. That's great. But don't spend all your time trying to tell people why Americans are terrible. So what is the center for the study of the presidency in Congress? What is the agenda? What are you doing? So, well, my portfolio happens to be the national security portfolio at the CSPC. And so one of the things that we're doing, everything from space initiative, meaning how do we get commercial space more integrated in the national security space to solve big problems and hopefully cheaper for the American taxpayer. We spent a lot of time on the Russia problem, understanding their threats, understanding how the new relationship they have with China is going to threaten us both economically and militarily. And so we have different projects. We are smaller than most, and we do we actually are drive for results, meaning we're going to spend our time doing things where we can actually make a difference either through legislation or policy makers..

I'm going to talk about the defense budget, and the fact that the defense budget seems to me to be antiquated and still apply divided in four sections and those sections don't change in response. Do you think the defense budget needs a fundamental reconfiguring in the aftermath of what we've learned in Ukraine? Yeah, well, Jerry Hendrix and others are convincing me that yes, we do need to move more to a navy centric kind of approach. But you at the levels we're talking about now, I mean, as you know, what the budget the administration submitted is a real cut in the defense budget.

"Hole. I reminded people online yesterday in 1993, the conservatives in Canada had a 165 seats in the parliament when they went to elections. Many of you are not old enough to remember this. This is just from having getting on the air. I got on the air in 1991. So I remember it. 1993, the concertos Brian Moroni had been prime minister for 5 years each step down. The conservatives had done a pretty good job that they've been around for a long time. Things have gone sideways under the new leader. 165 seats in the parliament after the smoke cleared on election day they had left two. 165 to two. I think that's what I believe. That's exactly what Democrats are looking at right now. Political oblivion and devastation because everything they touch has turned to absolute drost. From inflation to supply chain woes to the war on American energy independence to being late to the gate on everything having to do with Putin to dealing with Tehran, the southern border being open. It's just quite simply a complete meltdown at every level and it's all because of the Democrats, but especially education. At K through the gender education, the ending of advanced placement classes in places like San Diego's Patrick Henry high school, the war on kids, the war on the middle class. There were on everything normal and good, the war on everything by everything from the hard left. America is going to vomit it out in December and it can't come soon enough. I'll be right back, America's stay tuned. Welcome back and good things are not good in Israel as Passover approaches. 5 Palestinians killed on the West Bank last night as an extensive Israeli military operation continues in the aftermath of many, many, many terrorist attacks. For extremist Jews arrested for playing an animal sacrifice at the top of the Temple Mount. It's just kind of nutty and the government is shaky, joining us to tell us what's going on, Michael orren, foreman Israeli and bachelor of the United States former deputy minister of Israel. Good morning, Michael and a happy Passover to you in advance. What is going on over there? I mean, we're focused on Ukraine, but I look at the times of Israel every morning and it's a nightmare. You may seem like a nightmare from over there. Here, it's kind of business as usual. There was a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv last week. The terrorists were shot right down the street to me, the shots woke us up at 5 30 in the morning. And our guys got them. The next day, the beaches were packed. You had to see this to believe it. I mean, talking about tens of thousands of people out dancing. And that's the strength. That's the State of Israel. That's our spirit. They're never going to get us. And you know, that's not what's going on in Brooklyn. After the attack on the subway, people are afraid to go on the subways. I guess the Israelis are just inured to it. It's not just a nerd. We're just, you know, we've been doing this for about 3000 years. And what I said, we've developed some resilience here. Well, that's why Passover is Passover, right? I mean, that resilience. It's about resilient. So what is going on with the government? Now there's a hard one. There's a heart. So we got 66. I explained to you last week how that worked. Even 61 59 is not really sustainable over a long period, 60, 60 is totally untenable. So now it's about a horse trading. It's going to be like Bennett is going to try to get try to get key people in this coalition. He may try to get the ultra orthodox into his coalition. He is not one of the ultra vaccines because he's got some anti ultra orthodox parties in his coalition. But and y'all directed what's basically be able to name their price on the BB side of this. And Yahoo side, he also is going to try to get the ultra wide Oxy basically has them, but the big prize there is Benny got the current defense minister, who has 9 seats. By the way, that's three more seats in the prime minister has. He doesn't like the prime minister. He doesn't like the foreign minister of the lapid. And I think in exchange for a rotation agreement in which Benny Gantz will be prime minister first and BB after him. I think there's something to talk about there. And what would the former prime minister do when he was not the prime minister when prime minister Gantz was prime minister ganz? Well, I think part of it. And this is going to sound rather arcane. They'll try to pass in legislation in the connection what's known as the French law. Now, France has a law that if you are a sitting French president, you are immune from legal accusations. You can not be indicted as a sitting French president. Or for anything you did as president. So we don't have that law. Phoebe wants that law. He wants a retroactively supplied to himself so that he can get out from under these court cases. And I think that's the only critical quo. He'd ask for many gowns. And I would not be surprised if they gave it. So my question is, is it possible that we have like a Passover miracle 2022? Meaning that we come out of Passover weekend with a new government that's strong. It's got 69 members in it or 50 68 members in it. It's going to be secure. It's going to have a rotation agreement that's going to last 5 years and we can get past that. Is that something that's even realistic? Well, it's a miracle for whom. That's the question. If it's for the Israeli right and such a government come to being a miracle, it's really center and left. This is a disaster. Because it would be a very right wing government, which includes some part of some members who will have been quoted as saying racist things against Arabs. One of those members that fellow schmitz was just ostracized by the British Jewish community came from a visit in London. They said get lost. So it depends the nightmare for whom. But it is possible. And it could possibly be, you could put together a government without going to elections. It really boils down to, in my view, to the future of Venezuela. Well, it also boils down in my view is that the Iranians are getting close to swindling Joe Biden, who's in firm and not in control of this. And it makes no sense at all because the Russians are midwifing a deal, even as we're sinking their ships and providing the nations to go to war with them. And I think the real problem is over your border to the north and all the arms and the, I guess, 400 strikes in Israel is made on Iran. Does that drive Israeli politics at all the imminence of the threat? Unfortunately not. I never take issue with any of you say, I think it should one word that you use. And that is swindle. I don't think the Iran is a swindling anybody in this administration. I think administration is going into this with their eyes open. And that for us is the great tragedy. And the effort to stop Iran from transforming Syria into a forward base, our efforts above the board and below the board to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. It's going to continue irrespective of who's in office. I think you're right now, let me put it this way. I don't think Joe Biden has a clue what he's doing. I don't think he has control over the team blinken that's at the table in Vienna. I really don't. I think the man is too confirmed to be president and does not know what he's doing. It's such an astonishingly bad deal as it's been outlined. Or am I exaggerating, Michael? I think it's a terrible, terrible thing. I don't know about. I don't know about the confidence of the president. I know it's an astonishingly bad deal. The Iranian deal of 2015 was predicated on three assumptions. One that would make Iran into responsible regional power. Two that it would kick the can down the road at some point, right? And free that would block Iran's path to the bomb. Of those three only one is still relevant. Everyone knows Iran is not going to be a regional power. Everybody, everyone. Everyone knows it's not going to block the path to the bomb. There's only one reason to do this agreement, and that's to kick the can down the road. And again, at the end of the road, we are. Yep, you are. Well, a happy Passover anyway, a blessed one to you, doctor ordon, and everyone in his room made peace return to the promised land. And I will be right back with more good Thursday, holy Thursday, greetings for you, America, stay tuned live from inside the Bel Air on Hugh Hewitt..

DK Metcalf Learns Football Speed Doesn't Equal Track Speed

"The most talked about athletic feat for the weekend became Metcalf. Our second from the far right second hit of the 90 men's 100 met cops hanging with them. At the moment. It's failing even Deacon's doing a good job on the inside the siege Indochina and Mike Rogers that was close. 10 12 the winning time. Well, you gotta watch that It was really exciting. But Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf came in dead last in his first pro track and field race. But it was still amazing show and considering he ran the 100 M in 10.37 seconds, and he was asked why he would put himself through. This Was this just a PR stunt working out? I mean, just to test my speed up against the world class athletes like this? No, no, Like I said, Man just had the opportunity to come out here and warn against these guys, which is just It was just a blessing. You weren't afraid of the risk of what might happen in terms of just your profile and just your speed on the field, which we all live to see what Why were you not afraid to risk it? Because I'm a football player and athlete first man, a guy So you know, I just do things because I want to do it. So DK ended up coming in 15th out of a field of 17th in the U. S. Did you hear what that that question was like, Hey, you weren't afraid to jeopardize your profile. There's this so many of us that are held back in life because of our own insecurities and being afraid to fail. I gotta tell you, Ursula. It's okay to fail. And you know what? I love the fact that DK Metcalf put himself out there and said, You know what? I'm gonna go against the best. I love it.

"That's about to come out regarding the beginnings of the investigation into the trump campaign. Yeah I I. I'm really going to be interested to see what he lays out as why he would disagree with the report. The only thing that I can think of from a that passes the smell test for me is if This Durham who is the investigator looking at the premise of the the Russia investigation I if he came out and found things that were contrary specter general did not find that might to me pass muster. If it's just because I don't want to believe it that's going to be very disappointing to me one thing in your resume that it's probably good that you failed l.. That was when you were interviewed to be Director of the FBI. After Komi was fired you didn't get the job. Seems to me like that was probably a pretty good career move. My wife says. I dodged the bullets on that particular case. You know this that was I would have taken that for several reasons A I think the country deserves to have of an FBI that is independent fully functioning in focused on its work not dipping its toe into the political ups and downs of Washington. DC Eighty. And so. I thought I had something unusual happened there while I'm not sure if you remember this. The Agents Association had never endorsed someone to take the job as director. They just stayed out of it. They did that because of my relationship and the work that I had done as an FBI agent that was pretty significant to me. It was a motivation to me to say all right if they have confidence. I can do this in this environment. Then I would go ahead and put my name in basically go in for the interview You know as it's turned out they want a different direction than But I I. That's why people thought I was nuts. Just considering it and I'll tell you I just. I thought it was so important for the bureau and for the country to have this World Class Independent Investigative Organization. Doing good work on behalf of America. I just thought that was important in and I felt I had the tools to help protect that In do good work for the country. Another huge part of the distraction from the FBI is got to be this feud between the president and Lisa Page who's finally come out and gone public after two years of attacks from the president. How does that? How does that impact ah the FBI? Long term is something that is going to be able to recover from quickly or is this long term damage. Well I think it depends if the if it's just this president goes away I think it will be fine and I I just spoke at something called the G. Man Honors Association. Oh maybe a few weeks ago go where they honor The families of plane agents and and try to take care of their community. And you know they don't like it but they also recognize that the behavior for the agents involved although it does not rise to any personal attacks were on the on the president. The United States mind you. was wholly inappropriate inappropriate and it was a black mark on the FBI. They they all recognize that. And so I think if we can get through this personal attacking being by the president of the United States where I just think is just not I just I I. It's shocking to me that he continues to do this When when he has been an elected president for three and a half years I thought he would outgrow that but he did not unfortunately so? It's two things they understand the the realism Highlights what was very very poor Judgement on behalf of the people who are FBI associated with the FBI agent in one of it's attorneys and the fact that the president has gone way over bounds by making it personal to the person involved. And I I again. I hope we get over this quickly. Quickly my advice to the director Was the new director. Was Put your head down. Don't care about the politics. Don't get engaged in that. Don't come in on it. Focus on the bureau and getting it right. Do the things the bureau is supposed to do in getting it right and I think he's done that Relatively Well if they continue to do that I think they will weather the storm because the work is is more important than the squabble. A little bit about your day job. Now you're working with CNN both as a commentator on national security and also you're producing your own program on security. Is it liberating for you to be able to basically say what you think and not have to worry about what the folks in Howell Oregon. How they're gonNA react to it? Yes but you know it's interesting well I And you know sometimes when you're in the heat of the difference Politically you don't see this. I never really didn't say what I thought Which I think is why I won and some friends in the Democrat side out not that they agreed with me but at least I was straight about it and then I took a vote? I'd come home and I'd try to explain why I did it. You still might not like they get at least people appreciated that and so it is more liberating I guess because I just can I just say exactly what I'm thinking and it may not be in the president's interest today it might be tomorrow but that's not my job anymore. Job is to try to provide good analysis of what I see happening In the kinds of things I think that a uh are good and bad in the process that we see today so it wasn't a huge switch for me but it is a little bit more live you know. The pants fit a little bit looser. If you I will when you're when you don't have to worry about getting called on the carpet for something you may have had on either at home in your district or or National Channel TV. That's the story I've heard from quite a few former elected officials as we sit back and I have a couple of beers over the bar. They seem to be enjoying their lives a lot more now my wife says as I smile a lot more. I don't know what that's about I would. I would tend to believe it. I tell us a little bit about your program. Declassified untold stories of American spies for those who haven't haven't seen it what is what is the objective of the program. Well one of the things I wanted to do. And if you recall. When I was chairman there was lots of turmoil there were some you know or the intelligence community took a good beating? They're in a certainly now with this president who has seems to have a high degree of mistrust of the of the intelligence community. Which I think candidly is misplaced But it just doesn't help the community the community of intelligence to try to do really difficult work. So what I wanted to do and and originally when I approached CNN with the idea They were all in about saying yeah. This is great so the whole purpose is take stories who are which are declassified. By the way we're not telling any secrets That haven't been declassified. In any of these episodes were packaging. It in a way that you haven't seen and tells a fascinating story about you know but the very first episode give an example was about the first woman. CIA officer or spy. We sent to Moscow in the seventies And all of the the ups and downs and she was handling one of our most important agents in somebody turned in that agent and she got arrested and the whole story about all of that With her own words in this story to me was a powerful way to say. This is the hard work of intelligence. It's difficult it's not what you think is not Jason Born but it is dangerous all of those things over. The course of this is our third season. We just finished We tell all kinds kinds of great stories about international and espionage cases. That really will have you sitting on the edge of your seat or they feel like it's a TV show It's astonishing and kind of a documentary form but it is really the highlight of the people that do this work and be Just how difficult it is and it always doesn't turn out exactly the way are you want But at least it gives on the American public a view inside the kind of work and the commitment on on the behalf of these people. And by the okay. Well you can get it at CNN. Go Dot Com if you go on. CNN Go you can get all the past episodes and take a look. I think people would actually if you if you like spies and international intrigue boy. This is the show for you now. Twenty years ago when we were both a lot younger there's a lot more skepticism about spies in about the CIA and maybe the FBI as well but it seems now that is a very good credential for getting yourself elected to public office the district representatives now represented by a former CIA operative. You've got a half dozen or so in Congress. Now that form a mini caucus of security people. Is that the kind of changed. It makes you the bridge enjoyed your heart. Well listen I like I was a former military guy. I liked the fact that not everybody has to be in the military. And you don't have to be in the military to appreciate what they do and try to understand understand it But you know having a few around in the room does help. And so when these intelligence officials who have worked on the on the pointy end of the spear and get into into elected office. I do think it helps the dialog. It helps understanding so that when somebody stands up and says you know they're all liars and Crooks and fill in the blank somebody who's been vendor can say let me tell you about the people who take the oath of the United States to do the work that they do and are willing to put themselves in harm's way I just think that's a very good perspective perspective and I like lots of different kinds of perspective in Congress even the ones I disagree with candidly I like here in those stories because it can help shape what policy policy and how we move forward and so. I'm glad that there's more interest in that those communities. I don't know if you remember. But a guy named Marcin cow ski who is a former. CIA ran against me. I think it was two thousand. Six Kill district's seat so that was an well because the FBI versus CIA. You know who the good guys are. Okay I'm kidding I'm just joking. They're all good guys but it was kind of a fun thing. We did the spy versus spy kind of a race that year but it was It was pretty interesting interesting but I mean there are has been kind of a renewed interest from people who are willing to come out and put their name on the ballot. And I think it's a good thing Mike always good to catch up with you. Take Care Thank you very much. Well thanks thanks for making me.

"And then the following. Look should I think the new district and I'm not going to put this in the pod because it's total spent this week and government corruption. Meanwhile California Congressman Duncan Hunter. Just barely hold onto a seat after pleading guilty to stealing two hundred and fifty thousand campaign money here in Michigan State State representative Larry M and hold onto his job in the legislature up. He's tried for attempting to sell us. Vote in exchange for campaign contributions Christine. It was quite a show in the grand rapids federal courtroom. Oh to have been in that courtroom. This is really quite a story. So let's start at the beginning and then was elected twenty fourteen. He's in his third term. Now anyway he represents grand traverse county so your area amy. We've talked about all of this. He was in court for three criminal charges. Charges Federal Charges attempted extortion solicitation of a bribe and lying to the FBI and and this is all around an attempt to sell his vote on the prevailing pulling wage repeal to the Michigan Council of regional carpenters and mill rights. And of course that's a labor union that You did not want the repeal and Larry and men are Republican. His Caucus obviously supported the repeal so he was willing to say. Look I'll voted against inst- repealing prevailing wage in exchange for this campaign money of thirty thousand dollars. Ultimately the union deliver the money and Inman voted with his his caucus and against the workers interest in men's defense kind of revolves around several different points that came out in court one he had five surgeries surgeries and twenty eight months which meant that. He was using a lot of prescription drugs. He developed an addiction and that reduced his cognitive ability. He's saying there's a lot of these he's he's text messages which are evidence against him that he just can't believe he sent he doesn't remember sending them. Let's point another point is at fundraising is something they have to do. All the time and all of this fundraising staff wise. You know it was normal. It was within the bounds of everything. They do all the time. The third point. He was willing going to vote against the repeal of prevailing wage because his district didn't feel strongly about it however we chatfield threatened to pull committee assignments of caucus members who did not vote to repeal so he ultimately voted in support of repealing prevailing wage in order to give political covered to state rep Joe Beleno who is a Republican in a heavy union district who wanted to vote against the repeal and. He said that he had also been advised by Tom. Leonard's former chief of staff that business community supports loses support them and by helping Labor. He was making their own friends so all of that together. There is the story that Larry Mental to show that he didn't do anything wrong he was you know this is business as usual except for that he he was an addict at the time. And now you can see why Lee chat field was so important to the case Lee Chatfield said yes has representatives are always fundraising it's very clear that you've keep fundraising and legislation separate. We chatfield are also directly contradicted the accusation About pulling committee assignments assignments you see. He said he never threaten to bowl committee. Assignments based on the prevailing wage. Vote which I think is really important. Here Field testified that the caucus I always knew bellina was a no vote. There was no need to cover for. Lena's no vote on repealing prevailing wage. It's going to go to the jury early next week Nick. Monday or Tuesday one witness. They haven't been able to bring in is State Representative Steve Marino who sits by Larry Inman and allegedly kept a document that track the Republican position on prevailing wage. So he has documents arguments said who was in support of it who was against it. That document could show the details of what inman was thinking. So that's you know that's kind of I don't know the whole thing is kind of convoluted stuff. It's just gonNA come out to. I think it was more convinced. One thing we were talking about before the show started was and if this is the kind of thing that happens a lot Larry Inman was just more blatant about it. More out in the open I worked for the legislature for ten years and I never saw anything that approached this as I saw people applying subtle pressure to get campaign contributions but it was never quite this blatant in this open about a straight exchange of vote for money. But he could've used. The trump argument trump argues that because ultimately gave Ukraine the money. There couldn't have been a quid pro. Quo well inland. Never got the bribes so therefore there was no crime so he's not guilty right Republican logic. Exactly what does it crime. I mean obviously the the crime didn't depend on the deal the transaction going through. But you can say okay. He didn't get the money ultimately. He voted against Labor With his caucus he still lied to the FBI and it was clear like as you said you had never seen anything even approaching this this kind head of conduct. When they received those text messages they went to the police immediately? It was clear to them that a line had been crossed Senate what the Labor lobbyists is a good friend of mine. He's a former marine. And I just I can imagine his reaction when he got this text message he would have gone ballistic immediately because is this just the kind of crap that he look exit man. You can't do this. This is just flat out wrong and you know saying bad things about lobbyists with you know most the lobbyists I know are pretty ethical people and when they saw something like this I can understand them going to the cops right away from my personal experience of knowing Larry Inman I. I'm surprised that this he did. This just seems so out of character for him and I'm surprised at the FEDS haven't gone after Steve Marino to get that document. There was a document argument. That Larry inman Harry and as a going to vote against prevailing wage. Up until the last minute that coincided with the time he didn't get that money that that'd be really strong evidence. The only thing is wrong is higher. Rudy Giuliani as attorney. Meanwhile down in Washington we still have our fun there. The last month is certainly certainly given a lot of added prominence to the House Intelligence Committee and Chairman Adam Schiff before Democrats regained control of the House. That committee was chaired by Ukraine co-conspirator at her Devon Nunez of California just about every vote on. The committee seems to be a party line. Vote and has been since Nunez became the chair. But it wasn't always like that before Nunez took over the committee. It was chaired for four years by Republican. Mike Rogers of Michigan. I've had a lot of rhetorical battles with Rogers over the years back when I was doing my radio show. We would fight all the time but I was gave him credit for keeping the worst of partisanship out of the national security debate. These days Mike Rogers is a commentator for CNN on national security issues issues also produces the CNN program. Declassified untold stories of American spies known. Its third season Congressman Rogers. Welcome to the PODCAST. I think it's safe to say the since you left. The Intelligence Committee Committee has become a lot more partisan. Yeah unfortunately and it's been I think the last two chairmen including including the president won a combination of the both of those to turn it into a very sharp elbows partisan committee and I just never believed that was the role all of that committee. I had established a good relationship with my Democrat ranking member guy named Dutch groupers Burger from Maryland Great Guy Former prosecutor and we both set down when I became chairman and he became ranking member. Just agreed that national security was too important for petty partisanship and and and whatever we disagreed on. We were going to work it out and I think that served the country. Well I think it's served the committee. Well I certainly think it's Congress's oversight constitutionally oversight responsibility well from your perspective what is what is Adam Schiff done that. He shouldn't have done. How's he handled it improperly? I think he was partisan artisan before he got there. The you know and candidly the Republican before him started. That partisan there's conspiracy theories around every tree in every corner and that kind of started. The committee started flying apart from any Modicum of decency. And I think Adam Schiff just picked up that baton and ran with it to run an impeachment inquire I don't care To what degree is just wholly inappropriate from the committee in. He had very partisan comments before he did remember when he came out and said when he was in the minority he said. Oh I've I've seen evidence of collusion In the president's guilty I mean it was just very partisan rhetoric coming off of a committee that I argue is no place for that. There are other committees. There's other places to be partisan and Tigris I I just don't think the intelligence committees on them when you were chair of the Intelligence Committee one of the most high-profile things you did was an investigation into the whole Benghazi Situation He. He came out with a report that was critical of some things that happened but basically was was pretty neutral. Did you catch a Lotta static on that from your Republican colleagues. Oh absolutely absolutely Yes if sometimes to this day people bring it up. My thing is this I I have as a former. FBI agent and as a member member of Congress that had subpoena power. The power of the government is immense When it comes to your personal liberty your personal Ability to to live free from from government intervention and so. I looked at it as you need to be exactly right and if the government and I don't care if you're an FBI agent or a member of Congress. I don't believe you should ever use those tools for partisan purposes and so I wanted to play it fair. I want to understand the facts. I think the report was was pretty good in the sense that it laid out the time line laid out all the timing of it. I did it through. All what we would understand is traditional investigative tools for date stamping and time stamping of information. That we had and candidly none of that. Change even with the Benghazi Full Committee that happened after After my investigation because unfortunately people wanted to find something wrong. They didn't say day that there were going to find out what happened. They're going to say we wanted to find something wrong when you do that. I think the truth is the one of the first thing that gets sacrificed and I worry a little a little bit about that now with the impeachment hearing they were hell bent to get it And they're gonNA go and do things to find out the truth that they wanna see not the truth. That might be there. That's what I worry about in the current state of affairs In these congressional investigations. I don't think people have the truth in mind as much as they do. A partisan advantage and I just think that's dangerous. Okay a couple of things that you mentioned really sparked something in me first of all you talk about the power of the legislature the Congress to subpoena which is pretty much being ignored by the executive branch now and on the other side. You've got a William Barr who is looking it seemingly pulled as trying to pull this is the FBI even to the point of disagreeing with the Inspector General in the report..

"Reelection plan in two. There could be some Republican members of Congress from that area who are in trouble reinforcing forcing this conclusion trump has scheduled a rally for Battle Creek next week to Michigan. Congressional candidates held a telephone conference call reporters to talk about trump's uh-huh multiple broken promises. John Hood Lee is running to unseat. long-term Congressman Fred Upton and it district. It's gone from solid red to purple congressman then. The trump pence administration has failed to do anything to address skyrocketing health care prescription. Drug costs failed to act climate change in sailed it deliver on any relief to working families struggling to get by. You know I've just say. The trump administration has failed to deliver particularly on lowering Medicare allowing Medicare to negotiate Goshi eight for lower prescription drug prices which was one of the major provinces of their twenty sixteen campaign. And that's why it's a state representative. I've been proud to offer a resolution of calling on the federal government to negotiate these prices but looming over the campaigns of holy along with Holland's Brian Berghof. WHO's taking on bill hazing and the three three way battle and Justin a modulus grand rapids based district is impeachment? Berghof a point of not making a point over impeachment falling in West Michigan in many ways along along party party lines you know. Democrats are eager to see kind of for this administration. And you know I think some Republicans are are buying into some of the deflections. I should say rather than defense that the Republican Party has put up And you know I think many of them. Mr Wanting us to move on The country but I think people are are a little bit concerned. Think more and more people want our elected officials to be held accountable. And this is just wanted constitutional ways we have of doing that. Berghof told me he doesn't bring up impeachment and it rarely comes up in conversations with voters but surly hanging over all of the members of congresses. They get ready for the campaign especially those who are in the swing districts It's GonNa be fascinating given that we've got a virtual party line. Vote going on in the House of Representatives undeserved Peterman pretty clear. That's going to happen sooner rather than later and then the dams really gonna I you think is something that people still be talking about next November. I kind of think it depends on what happens between now in that we've seen over and over again that people just don't have attention span. Things changed so much that this could turn out to be just something that happened. I think the big thing that could happen would be if the Supreme Court rules that he doesn't have to give up his tax returns to the District Attorney in Manhattan and once those tax returns are up. I think that really is going to be the mother load of information on what Donald Trump has done to specially is basically screw the American people and steal everything again. I think that is going to be his downfall. I'm fairly certain that those are going into a sealed file so I don't know when those will be made public. I'm at this point. It's it's A grand jury but at the same time. If it's released to the folks in Manhattan for the State Investigation. It probably will also go to Congress I which by law has a right to have the ways and means committee has an absolute right to those tax returns and trump just said. I don't care if you got an absolute right. You can't have them. If the Supreme Court orders orders them to release them he probably GonNa have to release them. Do something to stop it. They're shooting nukes at the moment or something but that could be still another impeachable. Offensive defies is an order from the US Supreme Court. It's a slam dunk Even the Senate would have a tough time. Acquitting him at that point fingers crossed. Well one more note. On Congressional Channel Races Wretched Driscoll is taking a third shot at ousting. ultra-conservative Tim Walberg. And that's in the seventh district driscoll was team lose nominee for the last two recycles. Lost the Walberg fifty four forty six last year. She is a former state representative and former mayor of Selene. And the seventh district is the the most gerrymandered district and out State Michigan stretching from thirty miles west of Lansing all the way to Toledo. And here's another interesting thing when it was gerrymandered did this district. It was actually part of the emails and the process of drawing. This district was actually part of that federal gerrymandering loss And it was discovered that when this was gerrymandered they intentionally cut out mark showers home hometown battle creek and they added part of the third district. which as you know is Justin Amash displace place and they did that in order to discourage mark from running again they made it a little more Republican for Walberg but last Republican for Justin Amash so that helps us this time around i? I think this'll be Walberg Western. He'll beat her one more time. And then.

"We've got one now has a lot of experience state government but she's working with the thirty year old Speaker of the House who had little experience. Yeah that's I mean that's the point but I mean look at just look at you the record of it right so twenty years ago when we tried this experimental terrible and let's machine was one of the best states in the country for education on the bottom. I'm forty we had a reasonably good infrastructure. We have. We're now nowhere near that. I can't think of a whole lot of things that have gotten better in the state state over the last twenty years twenty years ago we were one of the You know best states. For Higher Education in terms of funding of higher education eighty eighty percent of the cost is paid for by the state twenty percent families now. Twenty percent is paid for by the state and eighty percent is paid for by family. Every kid graduates in Michigan was thirty five thousand dollars in debt. The fact that Michigan's ten states spends more on prisons and higher education. The experiment has failed. There's no question of that. So yeah I I think that if the people you know had a fair shot to look at the information. They may be wanting to repeal tournaments. Well he's got two million dollars in the budget for redistricting redistricting at least which was on behalf voters politicians. We thank you for that. I'm I'm happy for that. I think that I think ending gerrymandering commission was the number one most important thing that we could do in order to solve missions governments problem. I think the tournaments maybe the second biggest one but I'm so proud of the people for solving that problem because it really I mean I served in the most gerrymander binding the country last term. If you look at it just physically speaking forty-nine percent of the people that voted for a democratic state senator. We had less than a third of the body this last election. It's like we you know I was the campaign chair. I'm very proud of what we did. Mostly it's picked up since Watergate and Michigan for Democrats First Democratic Caucus ever to be half female and half mail also. I'm proud of what we accomplished. But that being said we got fifty seven percent of the vote and still have Don't have control the body. We'd have to get sixty. Three sixty sixty you know. Sixty three sixty four percent of the vote statewide in order to take control of the state. Senate that's not. I think the fact that they'll be fair election moving forward and the politicians won't be able to choosing their voters Ah instead you know having voters actually choose the the people that are present them a much better situation Senator Carter so tell always a pleasure have a great holiday. Doctors Actors Are Mike. Pence ventured into South Michigan last week and admission. That number one one Michigan is critical to the trump.

"To denigrate the poor and I find it pretty offensive. Last week ended it appeared that the budget stalemate lansing is finally coming to an end for the latest on the ongoing budget. Negotiations were joined by the senior Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Committee East. Lansing's Curtis Hertel junior senator. Tell it's suggested that we have a partial agreement on the budget. How far do you have to go until we have a complete budget for the fiscal year? That's already started. We'll completes interesting turmoil. You know I mean I think that the You know the budget's always in flux we. We usually have several supplementals throughout the year. Depending on the flow of cash to the state at the very least the immediate need supplemental. We'll be passed by the House and Senate and go to the governor's desk in a way that you can sign it so I that is a good sign. It doesn't mean we're completely done. There are still things that go beyond the immediate needs and there's still money to be spent from the Cisco Year. But it's a good start and I think it means we come back in January work together to solve the rest of the problems but the immediate needs will be solved in my opinion Dan for Christmas Day. Some of the rhetoric spin pretty toxic as this debate has gone on The Senate majority leader was quoted as using some interesting term. Shall we say about the governor and the Democrats in the legislature is that just the outside. Is that that way on the inside as well. Well you know I mean I was Extremely disappointed in the majority Jordan leader when he said that I called them and told them that you know I mean while Mike Shirking I disagree on probably A A large portion of our values are very different We've always been able to work together. And I told them that day that I was. I was offended for myself and for the governor after that I didn't think it was who he was and I didn't appreciate That you know I even told the story about how I had somebody at coffee. Our who was saying negative things about him and I said you know listen. I'm not happy with majority leader right now but I think he was going through things and I believe in the goodness of people in that. We're in the salt and I said lady prayed together for you Mike and that really does you know that's the difference here and and you either take this break and find peace peace and the good news is became back from break with a A renewed vigor order to solve this. And that's the those are good. Think I think you know. I think we saw the danger of where this path was leading us. You know we we. We constantly see in Washington. DC two sides can barely talk talk to each other lansing. Shouldn't be that way you know. Local government state government has little Usually a little more collegial and while there are tough times we shouldn't be that way and I you know I it was really disappointing mall in but I think that hopefully gave us the press. You know a look off the cliff and Maybe it prevented us from getting any closer to the edge of it so I'm thankful that it happened but maybe it had a positive result. Two big things that remain and unsettled. It appears are one on each side from the viewpoint of the Republicans Raining in the governor's ability to make shifts in the budget internal so using the state administrative board and going around the legislature. Something that's only been a couple of times. In the last couple of decades and on the Democratic side there is no increase funding funding for the roads at this point. First of all on the administrative board issue in the governor using the administrative board shift money around within these budgets. Are you close to an agreement on that until everything has been announced by both sides. I don't want to announce their agreement between them. But yeah it'd be the agreement that's been made is on for this budget. LEGIT moving forward Obviously does not solve the roads issue. And that's a big issue that we need to solve together but it does not i. I don't think the governor will be giving up executive power. I feel comfortable saying that on the roads. It's been my feeling for a long time. The legislature really is not capable of solving the problem that the governor is going to have to go directly to the people on this. It's very frustrating. But I mean I think that you've seen poster mets basically that there are a lot of interest us the legislature has solved post tournaments. A you the biggest thing lacking in legislature besides experiences courage. I think everyone's looking out for their own political future. which makes it much harder to get big things dot and so I agree with you that I still have some hope that some raw deal to get done but I think if the do it correctly the people would have to have what they're saying if in fact it does go to the ballot would be something other than the gas tax perhaps a graduated income tax or combination of taxes that would include the sales tax. I would agree with that. I mean I think that We need to progressive income tax in Michigan. Because it's just a matter of fairness I think that we certainly should be making sure. That heavy trucks are paying their fair. Share this process right now. You don't have to look at any liberal organization. I think senator study that showed that Heavy trucks right now pay about one. Eleventh of the costs awesome do The damage of Michigan Roads and they certainly should be paying their fair share of that damage. So I think that there are different opportunities. I think the the Michigan people are a lot more aggressive and the legislature is. So I think he'll probably get a better deal from the people. I will say that. Let's go to the thirty thousand foot view if you will of the legislative process processor. Your view is really unique. Your father was the speaker of the House. You had two uncles who served in the legislature. One of them went onto congress. Your brother is currently member of the legislature. This lecture as are you what is change. From the days when Curtis L. Senior was speaker of the house at a part of the leadership today. What's what's been the biggest change? There's a a Lotta I think first of all I wanNA over Romanticize the those times were tough situations. I mean when my father and Paul were retired at fifty five members as Paul Republican Co Speaker. Thank you sorry. I assume that you know people in your podcast. No but you're right I should have. I should I should be left colloquial But when Speaker Hill when my dad were elected both had fifty five members. It wasn't like they woke up and there was a solution to that. I mean the Michigan Constitution didn't have any answer of how that will be solved and they for the first two months tried to steal each other's members. They tried at one point. My father gave a speech on the floor of the House about thirty pieces of silver. Comparing Somebody to Judas. Paul was so angry at one point. It was yelling at home. The slammed the phone down said down the kitchen table and his kids ask them of Democrats. Were people because of how the the vitriol that would that that was between the two of them all the time but they were able to come to a deal and solve it. The most important part of that deal is that there were six silver bullets in that someone take a bill and shoved right to the floor because the committees were split half and half in the entire to use that agreement. None of those silver bullets. Wherever US they found a way work with each other and they found a way to talk with each other? Now what's different today. I think there's a number of things that are different. I think that there are less competitive elections. There ever were before. So you have. Because of the Gerrymander districts eighty percent of US elected by twenty percent of the people. There is no incentive to actually be in the middle the push is is always to the to the extremes of your party because those are the people that actually send lansing you know and it just feels like mine. The Democratic primaries the only election that really commanders and. I probably shouldn't say that but it just happens to be true I think that's a big part of it. I think that that there's less time to build relationships than there used to be well. There was a lot of vitriol back. Then you're gonNA have to serve with that person for a longer period of time and you're going to have to. Actually you had relationships and worked in less than in the passed on issues so there was a long term relationship. That was that you didn't want damage. And again I think the biggest issue the fact that your constituents you knew them And you could vote your conscience and and talk them into it. I think so many people now just stick their finger winnings do which way the winds blowing in vote that way because they're so the you know the next primary the next election or something else is going to happen so I think courage of the big issue too so I think a lot of things have changed and just the general polarization. I think that people don't don't. There's an assumption. The other side is evil. I don't think most of my Republican colleagues are evil dead wrong on things but they're not evil they just see. The world is different women and I do. It's hard to go. She ate if you think other side is evil. I I think we all you know because of social media and twitter and slanted news news organizations and all those things tend to live in a bubble of our own thinking And I think that makes compromise harder as well. You've also got the a combination of term limits and redistricting coming up Both of which impact you you're term limited out you've got I think having counties negotiating right now to figure out who's going to run for your seat. Is that having an impact on how the House reacts you've got so many house members that are looking at term limited senator such as yourself and kind of maneuvering for that next election. I think it's the big one of the bigger problems we have is that you know. I mean I told other people. I'm not dead yet. I still have three years left left but I do think you're right that That everyone starts guessing. WHO'S GONNA run for my seat next and what I'm GonNa do next and all the other things and really it'll honestly that's that's the the problem with homeless? It puts us in a perpetual cycle of politics. And while I I can understand why people thought it was an attractive active idea at the time I mean nobody likes the to the legislature. I think we pull about as well as polio have used car salesman. But I think people like individual slater if you told me right now l.. We could repeal tournaments I. I you know there's talk of it. I'd run for reelection for sure. This job is the biggest honor on my life and I think in many ways is a public servants. What I'm built to do you know I don't have a whole lot of higher aspirations? I mean I'm sure opportunities may come at some point. You work hard and you the right things and things come but this is. This is where I wanNA serve. I have a dog in this. I'd like to see tournaments change. But it's not just my own personal for the institution needs to the institution I think is failing the last twenty years. Well what's the last big thing that we saw long-term since terrible is passed. We've had sixteen years of governors. Who really had very little experience and say government?.

"America. Today I'm asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment. I commend our committee chairs in our members or their somber approach to actions which I wish the president had not made necessary. The holiday holiday season is normally pretty quiet politically. But this isn't your normal holiday season in Washington. The president of the United States is about to be impeached in Lansing. We're finally on the verge of completing the state budget and across America. Republicans are continuing an assault on people in need. This is the Michigan pollock ass.

Former House Intel Chair Mike Rogers Weighs In On The Impeachment Inquiry

Former House Intel Chair Mike Rogers Weighs In On The Impeachment Inquiry

"To calm yesterday's hearing was chaired by Democrat Adam Schiff of California he's the chair of the house intelligence committee and let's talk to someone now who said in that very seat Mike Rogers is a former Republican member of Congress from Michigan who was intelligence committee chairman thanks for being a congressman good morning Sir so what chairman shift said the inquiry that he is overseeing was a chance for the American people to make their own judgments what is that what it was yesterday I you know I honestly I'm a bit skeptical about the process of me and I have a couple of issues one I don't think an impeachment should be run through the intelligence community that means all of that other work that really needs to be done behind closed doors in close proximity with the the intelligence agents probably isn't getting done number one the number two I mean these are political events remember there are this is not a court of law there are no rules of evidence this is about one team trying to convince the American people that the other parties president needs to be out of office and the other team is trying to defend that purpose for keeping that president in office and really that's what you saw the start of yesterday and that's what this impeachment hearings I think is all about well I want to ask you I mean a lot of other questions that you brought up something very serious suggesting this committee is is not actually fulfilling its mandate which is to provide oversight of the nation's intelligence agencies to do you really feel that that these lawmakers are distracted right now how could you not be distracted this thing is sucking all the oxygen out of Congress let alone the committee and so I don't believe that the regular and important oversight work is happening men have on pretty good authority that it's just not happening and so even the disconnect you saw with the raid when we went and got Baghdadi the United States went in and took care of Baghdadi in Syria rated the the terrorist leader of ISIS that wasn't brief back to the committee and that tells me that those really important functions of oversight on happening number one and they're not happening on even the most serious of matters and so that read that does concern me again it's just not the purpose of that committee I would have preferred that they had moved that out of that committee to a more appropriate place maybe the judiciary maybe government oversight but the intelligence committee is designed to meet behind closed doors and not be out in the public as much as it has it's been a and it's clearly not designed it to try to set aside a legal framework and create the articles of impeachment which is as you can imagine an intense process all of that's happening I'm just not sure the other is a matter of fact I'm fairly confident it's not been that worries me a little bit but I suppose that the argument from from some who are leading this impeachment career which would be that while obviously that oversight is important so is exploring these accusations which suggests that the present United States might have dangled something as important as military aid to US ally for the benefit of trying to get a you know investigation done they could politically benefit and the army those things are are as important more important than some of the normal oversight yeah I mean I think you can do both honestly I just I'm not a big fan of doing on the Intel committee and what was interesting yesterday to me David has both an FBI former FBI agent chairman of that committee I don't know of any new facts were out other than I think with the the clip that you played when we started which was that phone call of the ambassador would make for a restaurant to the present United States from a foreign country I I certainly hope it was encrypted but when you think of that that was a little bit shocking to me and I think that his testimony is going to be really important mass or someone who is testifying next week because he seems to be the linchpin in the middle of all of that at least from the government side what would you do differently if if you're Adam Schiff in this political climate is is there any way to make this process less partisan is there any way for this committee to I don't know I mean do two things at once like you said they can you know again I will I but here's what I worry about that candidly this is gonna tear America part and it's already she you know causing you know hardship in canceling of of holiday plans for thanksgiving because faith which are torn up over it and you can hardly have a conversation in politics anymore that doesn't end up in somebody get in their feelings hurt and I worry a lot about that I just look at this process in the way it's happened and I think boy I is this the right thing to do for the country at the right time I mean no other business is getting done is that the right decision do I think of it that I mean obviously I think it was highly inappropriate for the president to have a conversation the way he did even though I think he obviously doesn't think it was a problem because he laid it out there and yesterday none of those facts were in dispute I think this is going to come down to the point of if you're a Democrat you probably think impeach him and get him out if you're a Republican you're probably thinking Hey this we know we've got to defend the president through the end of it and the rest of America which is the grades you know center left center right is left you know scratching their heads wondering if this town isn't broken beyond

Why isnt cybersecurity getting more attention?

"Security research firm, digital shadows said this week that more than two billion files containing sensitive information have been exposed on various cloud servers that are not properly secured Baltimore is still recovering from a ransomware attack in which hackers use tools stolen from the NSA to compromise the city's networks and not for nothing. Robert Muller reminded us all this week that Russians definitely hacked our election systems and were still unprepared, and barely even talking about cybersecurity. Let's dig into this in quality assurance, the segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story, Nicole pro Roth covers cybersecurity for the New York Times. I, I asked her how exposed are we to hackers using NSA level tools, basically, they could easily be neutralized if everyone was really good at patching their systems? And upgrading software. Unfortunately, we have a lot of old software sitting out there that certain infrastructure management, providers, and IT, overseers don't even know, really what's on their systems and the places where dot is most prominent our universities municipalities that religious don't have a good handle on how many of their systems are plugged into the internet. But I also think Baltimore's, a really interesting case because Baltimore is a lot bigger problems than getting a hold on its software. Upgrades patching procedures. Does that raise this larger question which is are we, you know, I feel like Infosec people right now are putting all these cryptic things on Twitter like we're at Defcon five and, and it makes me wonder, like are we paying enough attention? All of us generally as a society. Cybersecurity issues at a time when things seem like they're getting a lowers. It's such a good question. And the answer is no. I was just in Ukraine recently, and they were hit by these very same weapons in a massive cyber attack. There were two things that really saved them from it being a lot worse. The first is their systems are still pretty archaic. So unlike in the United States where we've plugged in every possible device we can think of to the internet Ukraine, still pretty far behind in terms of how much of their infrastructure is digitized the other thing that really saved Ukraine is they're living in a state of constant cyber attack from Russia. Russia has really used Ukraine as a testing ground. So they have a great sense of urgency there. And what they said to me when I was there was, this is what's coming your way, it seems like there are a lot of pleased for us to be paying attention. And yet what's. Gonna take. Well, I think it starts at the top where we have an administration that doesn't really want to hear about Russian interference in the election. But also Mike Rogers, the former director of the NSA, testified before congress. And in his testimony, he was asked, what orders have you been given to combat Russian interference in American election systems in critical infrastructure? And his answer was none. We've done nothing to fight back. And we've done very little to protect any of this from happening again. And then as you saw with our story cities still aren't doing the very, very basic thing, when it comes to securing their systems, which is just keeping them upgraded. And keeping them patched

"The same day stroke and page or texting each other back and forth about getting information from the transition team in a worried about a change in demeanor. What happens immediately after that? On November nineteen two days later, the Washington Post reported on a recommendation by Defense Secretary ash Carter and Jim Clapper in October that Mike Rogers be removed from his position. Folks, there are a lot of big mysteries left in this case. Some huge miss who was Joseph Masud what exactly to the scope memo say, but I'm going to rank up. There is one of the top two. Maybe the top mystery of this is what the heck did Mike Rogers. Tell Donald Trump on November seventeen twenty sixteen. What did he tell them? What did he talk to him about Trump Tower in a meeting? He doesn't tell anybody in the Obama administration about the NSA director one of our lead spy agencies who must be aware at this point of the spying activity on the Trump team. How do we know that Joe because Mike Rogers has already lodged a complaint with the FIS accord and the office of compliance indicating that he's detected unusual surveillance activity in the NSA database? He already knows this is all documents not a conspiracy theory. This is on the record Rogers already knows. There has been some serious malfeasance and abuse of the NSA system. He then pops up during the transition to Trump Tower doesn't tell anybody in the Obama team who had worked for all of a sudden Trump gets out at Trump Tower stat. Next thing, you know, two days later, Obama wants him fired and on the same day heads up there Schroeck in page, you're texting each other worried about some change in demeanor amongst White House, and if they can get White House incoming White House staffers. I use them as moles and information channels to detect the change in demeanor. What changes demeanor the change of demeanor? You would likely see if Donald Trump just found out his entire transition team was being spied on you mean that change in demeanor. Ladies and gentlemen, the big mystery. And I know I saw the clip the other night on the FOX show. I get and I'm not willing to go that far you when I am. I'll let you know. I you know, what I'm talking about. Some of you sent me emails. What did my garage tell Donald Trump? That explains ladies and gentlemen, this entire series of events. If Mike Rogers warned Donald Trump about a militia surveillance operation at abuse of the NSA system at target is team member seventeenth this whole chronology of events. Now make sense Rogers goes up to Trump Tower doesn't tell the Obama team that's been spying on the Trump team. Number two. We warned Trump on November seventeen twenty sixteen potentially. Trump gets out at Trump Tower immediately possibly better comsec up in Bedminster where they can control the traffic more. November nineteenth the Obama team freaks out demands. He's fired Mike Rogers the same day as the Rogers briefing stroke in page freak out there. Looking for an information channel as Joe said a mole inside the Trump team to detect any changes in demeanor. Those texts. Nobody finds out about those texts until win June July twenty seventeen in those texts where they're looking for a mole, it appears the mall..
