"You really don't, but I know we used to litigate this. But anyway, go ahead. Okay. They are not allowed to release Donald Trump taxes or anybody else's then allowed to. It's illegal. Do you know under that section of the code? They're not even allowed to tell the public, or members of congress have somebody's being audited. Imagine. But they go back to nineteen twenty nineteen twenty four statute that says congress has a right to have access to these tax returns. Well, we'll see go ahead and let a gate it. But the fact that the president challenges this they said, well, that's obstruction thinks he's a king, these slime balls are now accusing the president of what they're doing. Mark can I just say one more thing yesterday? I, I feel like I've known you for at least two minutes. Okay. Now, I know you longer believe me, what's listen to Irish releases that they have for Bernie Sanders and Biden beta. Whatever did you what I care about is their charitable contributions. They basically give a thousand dollars which compare essentially nothing which compared to Donald Trump ratio is one penny to the millions, Eddie giving in, in, in chatter to me. It's more important to see how generous you, they are such a bunch of misers, but they're very easy spending our money too many. How many tummy how many jobs has Bernie Sanders created for African Americans Latinos, Asians, lesbians, what I wear are we LGBTQ whatever how many jobs has he created for that group of people none? And yet, Donald Trump is created God knows how many jobs for everybody. All right. Judy. Thank you for your call. Excellent call. I may say so I just did Diane Sacramento, California. How are you? Hello. I have a question, look when Adler and congress say to Mr. bar or to President Trump. You know, you, you have to turn over all. Oh, protected, even the redacted information for us, right? And they say, no, we can't, we can't unredacted things because it's illegal isn't, and they say, okay, well, if you don't then we're gonna hold you in contempt. That's like entrapment and it goes beyond politics and the media, and laying blame. It's like setting up someone to break the law or else they're going to get punished. That goes beyond politics. So tell me this, how many so-called journalists on CNN and MSNBC have in plain English coherently, explain to their audiences exactly what you just said. Well, I. That's not the point. It's the law has to step in and we know that and will step in. It's going to go to court. Good. Go to court. We don't get an Obama judge because, you know, they use all kinds of laws that have actually been written. Right. But this is a fortune cookie, and that's where they get their advice from go ahead. But this is this is intrepid. Okay. The technically entrapment because he's not gonna do it, what it is violation of, of a federal statute, but they're insisting that he do. He's a smart man. He's not going to do it. And they're gonna go to court to protect themselves, and if they want him to violate it. So then they could really don't want him the violate it. They're trying to create an impression among their constituency, which actually is pretty stupid. Apparently that this administration is obstructing their magnificent subpoenas. Now, let me just tell the American people just because congress issues a subpoena. So what depends what it says? Thank you for your call. I am only saying that because I know you're gonna repeat yourself. We got set. K Don K, D, W, and Las Vegas Nevada, go. Hey, Mark longtime listener first-time. Caller. You got. I'm curious about this whole thing show every thing because I've always thought that, you know, if you know the laws that the federal government doesn't do aren't left to the state, but the federal government does have the immigration laws.

"mr bar" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Institution riding at national review online about compared contrast to attorney generals, and contempt citations the news is that the attorney general Mr. bar has been now a by vote of the judiciary committee and the house of representatives led by Jerrold Nadler cited for contempt from the threat to the actual vote was about nineteen days. I learn, but this is a very unusual behavior because we have a previous attorney general who was cited by and voted for contempt by a previous house of representatives. And that example teaches us that this present conduct might. The irregular a professor a very good evening to you. The previous attorney general was Eric Holder and congress did vote him in a lopsided vote. You side to fifty five to sixty seven for contempt because of the matter had to do with a matter of guns at the time and the Obama administration, citing executive privilege to protect the attorney general. How does that may? I correct. What can I just correct? You surely wasn't about guns. It was about lying. There was terrible operation involving guns. But the administration sent a letter to congress saying that it knew nothing about it. When in fact, they knew everything about it. And so the hearings and the controversy was how the Justice department came about and how it plotted to deceive congress about the fair so wasn't just guns. It was it was out in outlying. Thank you. Because I wanted to get to ask you how this. Contrast with the executive privilege that is now contemplated with the president contempt citation of the attorney general and your column in the national review set tells me amateur reader that there's very little in common between these two episodes. Well, I think to the sons that their differences muster bar offer. A well, I mean to begin with, you know, bar has released all but tiny portions of the Muller report. He didn't have to release any of it at that under the under the law that were pointed to him on a confidential basis he is the one who chose to give any of it, the congress, and the fact that he has made minor reductions. It's just it it it is so strange that the committee would would make such a big deal about that. But the second thing is that the reductions are required by law that these reductions has to do with grand jury materials, which are among the most confidential documents that we have on our system is actually a criminal offense for an official to release grand jury materials outside of the exceptions provided for in the law. You know, maybe I mean, it used to be up until recently that there were courts that would order that would give orders allowing the release of grand jury materials, but you know, the most recent precedent in the DC circuit is that that is not permissible, but whether that's right or wrong. Certainly no such a court order has been given. And so, you know, bars. Being held in contempt for not violating the criminal law of the United States. The the holder case you report this goes back to twenty twelve the first term of the Obama administration. The holder case involved a congressional subpoena. And also the matter of the separation of powers, and in that instance, the president invoked I believe executive privilege could the White House. Follow the the present White House follow that pattern it today and be within its power. Well, the pro President Trump has already invoked executive privilege which protects bar from being criminally prosecuted for contempt citation. So in other words, the I meant executive privilege about the unredacted of the redacted part of the molar report is executive privilege to help here. Because this matter of what a court can or cannot. What I court permits to be released to congress to members of congress as confused me is executive privilege a blanket that could stop the congressional inquiry entirely. So that's a difficult question. The word executive privilege does not actually appear in the constitution or in any laws. That is a long standing practice that this is a general term for a wide variety of reasons, why the executive refuses to provide documents to congress or to the courts, it might include national security, it might include presidential communications. This is to my knowledge. The first time that grand jury materials have ever been involved and executive privilege of determination. So it can cover a lot of different things. You have to look at the details and the holder affair of bomb administration vote executive privilege because of. Of internal deliberations within the department of Justice about what they were going to tell congress and the press. Now, those internal deliberations are pretty low level so far as we know they did not involve presidential communications. I think most lawyers having to do with executive privilege believe that executive privilege is actually reserved for presidential communications, or at least high level communications that the ideas that several PR flunkies down on the Justice department can can discuss, you know, not turning over documents to congress, and that gets executive privilege is I think if it startling you recommend a resolution here similar to what happened in twenty twelve which is when the Republican House of representatives went to court is that something that would work here to resolve this dispute. Well, we probably would you know, all there's. Very little precedent for any of this in in the past. I mean, we got on for hundreds of years without a single cabinet official being subpoenaed for documents or held in contempt in connection with documents. It's this is really quite recent phenomenon and the first time in American history that the congress or or in that case that house for presentative went to court was at the end of the Bush administration demanding testimony documents from the White House counsel and the presidential chief of staff. Many people thought at that time that the court would say that it isn't a matter for the courts, not just icial controversy. But the district court did take touristic, and and then the administration was over. So it was really never resolved. Then the same thing happened with holder. So we have to district court decisions. Now holding that that eight branch of congress can go to the courts to enforce a subpoena. Now, it's never gotten above the district court. We don't we do not have an appellate decision. We do not have a supreme court decision. And we don't really even have long standing practice. But it may make sense that this is a peaceful way of resolving it. If if the two sides can't get together the way, you know, they've been able to do for hundreds of years, if you know, if the house, you know, demands that the executive turnover whatever they ask for the president refuses to turn over anything. And there is no cooperation, no negotiation. No compromise. You know, how is this going to be resolved their constitutional issues on both sides. And maybe the best thing is for them. Just to go to court. Michael McConnell is the Richard and Francis. Mallory professor of law Stanford.

"mr bar" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"This is textbook kind of attack Crecy, and I am very much warming to my old idea of number of weeks ago that if they're not ready to impeach Mr. Trump, maybe they should start with Mr. bar, and he is behaving in ways that are completely inappropriate for an attorney general. And it'll be very interesting to see what happens if in fact, the entire house votes him as someone who's in contempt of congress and. Then what happens beyond their, but he's behaving in ways that I think are really unprecedented in DOJ history. And I feel for the people who work there. There is a cloud hanging over them. And they are led by someone who does not have credibility who seems to willing to anxious to do the president's bidding. And for all those professionals who are at the Justice department. I'm sure they're keeping their nose to the grindstone and trying to be professional, but they must be aware that there's something rotten in the Justice department. Rocca you have this question of what is done Mcgann going to do this? He's got a subpoena to testify to the judiciary committee in the White House is saying, no, no, we don't want him testifying that's all executive privilege, which is a difficult argument for them to make since he's already talked about it. But then the president comes out and publicly attacks Don Mcgann that in effect is pushing done Mcgann toward the judiciary committee. Well, maybe I think that's in part. What happened with for example? Michael Cohen, I think Trump alienated him in some of its statements so much that it pushed him more and more to the government that didn't totally work out for Michael Cohen the way he expected it to our hope that it would. But yes, I think that is a possibility. But I, but I also think I mean, I think and I that I think people could disagree with this reasonable. Prosecutors could disagree. But I think that what Trump is doing publicly with Mcgann in my mind is attempt at witness intimidation. He is trying to show him. I can hurt your reputation. He's already pulled his business from his law.

"mr bar" Discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"The first time ever on MSNBC, the now famous convicted ex Trump aide who sparked the molar probe then went to prison. We'll get into all of it with. Yes, George popadopoulos. I'm even going to get into a big question that I think we're all still wondering and trying to figure out why so many lives, including his confessed lie when there was no chargeable collusion. Also, what was it like in prison? Everything's going to be on the table, George popadopoulos here tonight on the beat and later there is big news on ObamaCare. We're going to show you that later in the show we begin with what is known about what? Bob Muller found for all the talk about Muller's findings, no one outside of the DOJ. As of this hour has seen them yet. Instead, we have attorney. General Bill bars. Now famous letter, some Democrats are calling it basically a press release, it States, Mr bars view of things and his attorney general we report on his view. It's important. But Democrats are now dialing up the pressure in a big way. They're demanding the public report within the week one week, and there's new sides as I mentioned, the DOJ sort of responding because they're saying tonight it will come out within weeks, but not by that deadline in that big letter that you see on your screen. Dem say they have some leverage because they will issue a subpoena. If needed and speaker Pelosi now taking a pointed shot at Mr. bar, Donald Trump's newly-installed attorney general. See the report we don't need an interpretation by attorney general who is appointed for particular job to make sure the president is about the wall. We need to see the report. What you heard there is the sitting speaker making a serious allegation against the person in charge of holding the law. The sitting attorney general we should know Pelosi. There is going much farther than President Obama's attorney general Eric Holder who had critique criticism for bar, but not quite to that degree. He made his first comments on the way bars handling this and his letter telling us last night that he viewed the way bar is doing this. As raw take a look. I think he's wrong. I think he is taking onto himself a role that has not typically been used by people in the position that Bob Barr has had it seems hard for me to imagine that Bob Muller asked Bill bar to do this that seems that would be Bob Muller, shifting the responsibility from eating the call to the attorney. And that's just not the way in which Bob Muller is well, I'm joined tonight for the kickoff of our show by Jim Walden. A former federal prosecutor who also has represented a Muller witness bear burger, a former federal prosecutor in the southern eastern district of New York and NBC's Heidi principal who joins us live on Capitol Hill where this big fight is going. Jim your view of a what Eric Holder said and what Nancy Pelosi supersized? Well, really there's a problem here on the one hand he was clear. Trump was cleared of collusion on the other hand, we had this big riddle the big mystery, which is what is the evidence of obstruction, and what did Muller say about it. I certainly agree with Eric Holder that I've never seen anything like this before. Usually where you have a report you have a recommendation, we have a recommendation in the report with respect to collusion..

Apparently, they had a private meeting and bar did not slit his wrist. And swear that he would get rid of Trump, which is what they're asking the guy. Did you watch any of this? This attorney general designate will you promise not to interfere with the mother. Well, you'll promise that Muller will be allowed to go as long as he needs to dig up. Whatever dirty on Trump. We get rid of Trump. Yes, Senator that's my intention within the bounds on the rules. Mr. bar, will you guarantee that Trump can't fire? I'll do everything I can in terms of the constitution Senator to make. We'll you make sure that the mama report says what we want to hear that Trump colluded with Russia, and they gotta go. I'll do whatever the special counsel tells me is proper under the rule. That's what it was the arrogance of these people as though Muller is God. And nobody's going to get in the way of writing the ten commandments. It's obscene, and it's offensive to me. And apparently Chuck Schumer was not satisfied enough in his private conversation with bar apparently bar would not commit to standing aside and letting Muller do whatever he wants and say, whatever he wants and report, whatever he wants.

How are you? Good. It's an honor to talk to you. I just want to get your thoughts on Donald Trump or anyone else doesn't have to apologize for listening to the American people and changing his mind winter last time that we had a president that actually listened to the American people, and it what they wanted and your you and your program, you're the nucleus of of a bunch of like minded people that Donald Trump wants to listen to and I just don't I don't think anybody has to apologize for that. I think it's it's an amazing thing that we have in our in our president. I'm proud of it. I agree with you one hundred percent in in fact, probably even more than that, the the idea that Trump would be listening to this program is though that somehow illegitimate the fact that Trump will be listening to people voted for him is that somehow sick. This is exactly what I'm talking about. Folks. That's what they believe. I don't know how to tell you how how beside themselves people in Washington are over the simple fact that Trump's strives to keep promises. In the world politics. Those are gimmicks. Nobody means any of that. And everybody knows. That's why there are never any news stories on presidents and candidates breaking promises. It's expected. It's a gimmick everybody. Does it? You're not supposed to actually try to keep them. Because that would mean the people have some power in things, and that's not supposed to happen. But the constant attacks on me and this program in you. It's thirty years on that peop- they've been doing this. And the reason for it is to discredit. In the eyes and minds of people that don't listen they have given up on trying to get you to stop listening to me. They figured out. They can't do that.

So what they're doing now is personal attack in salt and all this to damage my credibility and Trump's everybody else's among people that don't listen. So that our audiences won't grow. And so more importantly than that that we will not be influential with people who who don't listen, and that's part and parcel of their approach is to discredit anybody to de-legitimize anybody.

"Mr. bar, hugs relationship with Mr. Muller terrific. We embar Trump's nominee to be the next attorney general of the United States made the Senate rounds ahead of his confirmation hearing next week you face tough questions about his prior criticism of the Muller investigation, namely a memo in which he called a quote fatally misconceived to say that a president could be accused of obstructing Justice for firing the director the potential confirmation of bar also comes as deputy rod Rosenstein, who's overseeing the investigation is set to resign leaving the department of Justice and potentially the Muller probe in bars hands once he's inevitably confirmed by Senate Republicans joining me now is Joe Coniston editor in chief of the national memo and author of man of the world the further endeavors of Bill Clinton back with me, Barbara mcquade and Elliot Williams. Thank you very much. I'm gonna come second. But I wanna start with Barbara Elliot on just the question of whether now William bar is going to have to answer some pretty pointed questions because his memo about obstruction not being possible because the president. Has the right to fire. The FBI director Elliott I'll start with you. Well, that's real different now because the FBI the New York Times story says that the obstruction is the collusion. Oh, absolutely. Look, let's start with a really really big point. There's a lot of chatter about the fact that bar was attorney general in confirmed once for attorney general before and that should take away a lot of the questions of his integrity and his fitness for the job just to make something clear having been attorney general or in any government position before doesn't entitle you to the position for life. And you need to be the American people deserve full and thorough vetting on all of the important questions in issues that might become before this individual, including whether whether he ought to be off to recuse himself or has compromised himself based on positions. He's taken with respect to the investigation. Now based on the reporting we've seen from the New York Times, a significant amount of time should be spent on his confirmation here in getting into these questions of you know, I would he take the advice. Ice of career officials at the Justice department, which predecessor did not as to whether to recuse with respect to the investigation. Would he? Would he commit to making any report public based on everything we know now? And so yes, this reporting from yesterday raises a number of significant questions that he needs to be able to answer and clear answers on otherwise he's just simply can't demonstrate merely having had the job twenty five years ago doesn't render him fit eternally. Yeah. Absolutely. And because Barbara the investigation of the counterintelligence investigation really now is about potentially Moscow ongoing influence over the sitting president of the United States. Here's a clip from this New York Times story that criminal and counterintelligence elements were coupled together into one investigation former lawn investment fourth officials said in interviews in recent weeks because if Mr. Trump had ousted the head of the FBI to impede or even end the rush investigation that was both a possible crime and a national security concern that leads me to ask. And I will ask you that six suggest to me that if Mr. Barwa, then becoming Torney general, and he were to fire Robert Muller at the behest of the white. House wouldn't that put him in jeopardy of being investigated for potentially a counterintelligence criminal probe? Well, possibly, but it would all come down to his intent. What was his purpose in doing? So if he did it for a legitimate reason, the no, but if he to doing it for some corrupt purpose to derail a counterintelligence investigation than certainly I think Elliott makes a really good point in saying that just because he had this job twenty five years ago. Doesn't mean he's qualified to do it today. And I would submit that in some ways, it may make them even less qualified because so much has changed in those twenty five years. I think this story demonstrates that hazards of offering an opinion when you don't know all of the facts, what has happened since nine eleven is congress. The Patriot Act has brought down the wall that previously existed between criminal investigations and counterintelligence and counter counter-terrorism investigations it used to be that those two things were kept completely separate. They are. Now shared that information shared because we wanna make sure that the FBI has the ability. To connect the dots. It's the phrase that they use so often..

Attorney for five and a half years. He was sessions deputy for year and a half. He said some things that would probably be problematic to be confirmed. But having said that I was very impressed. With his attitude is professionalism, and he's got a very solid resume. So I would encourage the president to pick somebody fairly soon. So we can heavy permanent attorney general going into the first part of next year. Does that mean not Mr. Whittaker when you say like him to nominate someone very soon?

Have you have indicated an openness to a second special counsel? You're now likely going to be headed to dish. Sure committee. Why jumped to a second special counsel when it comes to the FBI's handling of all of these investigations. Why can't you do it? I why can't it be done in congress of before you decide you need a special counsel. Well, the one thing I'm not suggesting that we go back and try to repress acute secretary Clinton. That's not what I'm suggesting amp suggesting that people department Justice FBI in the early stages of the Russian investigation. The dossier was used to get a warrant that. I think was very inappropriate. They seems to be some political bias about how the Clinton Email investigation was handled. We need to get to the bottom of all of that. But I'm not suggesting we prosecute her. And let me take a shot at this. And maybe you're right. Maybe the committee can do it. But I'll I'll let you know more early next year.

Well, the cabin or hearings were I think did a lot of damage to the committee and to the judiciary. And we got to start all over the good thing about elections, Chuck is restored as a reset of democracy. We got a new group of people coming in a fresh start a like, Diane. I don't think she did anything inappropriate individual in the cabin hearing worth her the best. I can prison in sin. It soon reform. I know you're going to ask me about that. You know, I promise. Well, I think there's something I think is something we can do in the lame duck here. But I promise Diane and all the Democrats on the committee to try to find a way to do something on immigration. There are a lot of things we could do on that comedian about partisan passion. What it really means? You're in the middle of a lot of stuff impact. I do a lot to get to here..
