U.S.-China Trade Talks Resume at Pivotal Time

"Striking scenery world-class Music and film festivals and authentic character are just a few reasons why telluride Colorado is a favourite summer destination authorize offers endless outdoor activities catering to all passions and tastes for more information go to visit telluride dot com slash W S J consumers there are sympathize with the Hong Kong protesters and China and China's been trying to bring into this unrest apple said in a statement APP quote toxic software and said it betrays the feelings of Chinese People Yoko says the situation that it removed the APP due to concerns that endangered law enforcement and residents and fidelity announced that it too will eliminate commissions from its online brokerage the move follows similar announcements from its rivals Schwab Td Ameritrade and E. Trade so why are all of these firms eliminating commissions well it has to do with the digital has left apple and a sensitive position that's because a fifth of the company's sales come from China the current situation really shows or underscores having a big deal but most people's expectations are a lot lower than they were in May and interest rates are falling just not in the mortgage market the difficulty that American companies are facing these days if you're operating in China on their basically kind of cop between the Western markets Chinese state media criticized Apple's decision to approve the APP it's called H K map dot live from Beijing Yokota has more yes sold a the president is growing his personal legal team in preparation for the impeachment inquiry in the house Mr Gowdy is a Republican and former prosecutor from South Carolina he I take a look at what negotiators for the US and China will be discussing in Washington later today here's what you missed. President trump hired former representative trey goudy to represent nation of Wall Street that's reset many of the costs of investing so now some of the biggest players have been in a price war to attract consumers on Tuesday there was a very strongly phrased commentary against apple on the People's Daily on that's the official mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party and diversey around this APP has been webling up actually over the last week or so and on how it went was apple initially rejected the sap during its review in Libya and apple removed an APP that citizens and protesters in Hong Kong had used to track police activity from its APPS store the removal came after now our main story this morning trade talks between the US and China resumed today in wash I think one reason why the state media strongly criticized apple in China on this issue is because anything related to sovereignty in China is a very sensitive issue rose to national prominence as the chairman of the select committee on Benghazi that was a special panel created to investigate the death of four Americans in a twenty twelve terrorist attacks process but that move by Apple drew criticism last week across social media in the US and Europe and then the more customers coming through the door the pressure new to offer super competitive pricing to them goes down plus view of too good to be true life hacks video in ten already the South China Morning Post reported that lower level U. S. China trade talks have made quote no progress in resolving the yearlong trade war one as we're also seeing with the case of NBA they're clashing against the Chinese government and that commentary in the People's Daily called this Chinese hoped to achieve this time publicly the two sides are still kind of talking a good game about the possibility of doing a big deal but most people beating factor the backdrop for the talks has gotten more complicated Charlie Turner has been finding out more from Josh Zoom Brune Josh what do the Americans in the ober appeal that decision to apple and apple this time of the APP but that's when really the Chinese state media and consumers began criticizing apple so those expectations are a lot lower than they were in May back in May when the talks broke down it really looked like there was a possibility of sweeping deal that was going to cover at these tariffs per perhaps taken off over time it looked like a big deal was really a possibility and now people are looking at thinking that a lot of those issues are probably just a huge range of America's concerns with Chinese business practices it looked like you know the Chinese side was going to US added twenty-eight Chinese companies to an export blacklist over human rights concerns the White House says it wasn't related to trade talks and I imagine this is what's news from the Wall Street Journal I'm Kim Get I'll send let's get started now before or even five months ago you know they've been these new blacklists against Chinese companies a lot of these companies were targeted because they are companies that were not going to be resolved and hopes are lot more muted people are looking people think there's a much greater chance of a of a smaller deal if there's anything at all earlier this week the US has a human rights concern there You know other issues we've seen we've seen everything going on with Hong Kong with the democracy protesters there with China cracking down on that channel disagrees with that right I mean this is one of the reasons that a really all encompassing deal has gotten a lot harder is that there's so many more issues on the table than there were involved in the surveillance in western China where China has been really behaving pretty rip repressively towards the Muslim population there and these companies had helped with that China tensions when when the general manager of the Houston Rockets tweeted in support of the Hong Kong protesters I mean it's really gotten to be a really complex table of issue the US you know kind of wants to support the Hong Kong protesters but it but that adds another dimension to the issues I mean we saw the NBA of all places get sucked into us has just on trade we're going to ignore all these other topics it's actually gotten really hard to To narrow the discussions in that way could there be some smaller scale deal for instance China has resumed its purchases of soybeans from farmers you know with the White House perhaps postpone the tariffs that are scheduled to start October fifteenth or maybe ease up on restrictions again over thirty feet of snow last season telluride is ready for another stellar year filled with powder days and bluebird skies continually ranked the number one ski resort telluride as it is to vacation there with nonstop flights from Eleven Major Hubs Wall Street Journal podcast listeners received thirty percent off early season lodging I wa Wa right I mean I think that's the kind of the perfect example of the of the lowered expectations that we're talking about here you know the US has made it clear that it wants to see these cultural purchases and China has actually started to come back into that market in in the last month that half and so there you know there has been some net mini deal is all we end up with you can find our full coverage of those talks up on WSJ DOT COM news and that's exactly part of the reason that it's going to be hard for the Chinese or for the US to kind of set aside all these things and say oh we're just GonNa you know we're going to make we're going to in North America by readers of Conde NAST traveler telluride boasts no lift lines and exceptional terrain for all levels and abilities it's as easy to travel to time that's because even though interest rates have been falling the cost of taking out a mortgage hasn't fallen as fast in fact now the spread between US Treasury yields and mortgage rates he knew tariffs you know that kind of thing where they where they make a mini deal and they say we're going to keep working on these other issues maybe they never do come back and work on those other issues you'd call it progress on that issue and so you know is there a deal where China agrees to keep those act purchases and the US says well we're not going to add to book go to visit telluride dot com slash WSJ on two markets we're going to talk about mortgage rates today higher than it's been in years so what's happening and Isaac Explains Light so as with these things is a bit of supply and demand play and here's what else were paying attention to today the Federal Reserve is set to vote on and a lot of mortgage providers scaled back what they had on offer last year because they were seeing a bit of a drop in demand then this year they've been seeing much higher demand getting greater you're gonNA keep that rate as high as possible as you can to keep investors happy on the other side who might want a mortgage backed security recently a few got more customers coming through the door the pressure new to offer super competitive pricing to them goes down what you're also seeing and is important to remember relations if the Fed does decide to ease these rules it would be some of the most significant changes to bank regulations since President Trump took office andrassy consumer a mortgage a slightly higher rate even if that traditional relationship between you thirty year mortgage and ten year treasury yield might be getting that gap a measure that would ease liquidity and capital rules for large banks these rules were put in place after the financial crisis but banks have since complained that they create burdensome president mortgages and their role within the white is sort of network of finance is a bit more complicated than you might I think so. Investors are often easier to comply with a number of them in some cases for medium size regional banks they'll actually be carved out from certain requirements so they're really after what could mortgage-backed securities and for them the higher the interest rate charged on a mortgage the more likely they are to get a good return so if you can offer Herman has more the trump administration has made it a priority to basically simplify a number of the rules they would argue they're they're making it ashok that many of those videos are in fact not accurate Jeff Horowitz says there yet another example of how much of the content on social media is closer to fantasy no one rule change has been monumental collectively the changes are a significant step to soften the impact of the Dodd Frank Law finally have you ever been tempted to

It's Thursday October Seventeenth joining us I'm marks up and I'm Lindsay McGuinness this podcast is produced by the Christian Science Monitor Copyright Twenty nineteen you'll see one phrase often repeated trump target or trump foil yes mister cummings and President Donald Trump crossed swords awesome Washington on Thursday the US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sunland testified that president trump put Ukraine policy put human interaction that's all he said famously. During congressional hearings into the Benghazi Crisis in two thousand fifteen Mr Indi- must navigate the deep state the House impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump appears to be advancing rapidly amid swirling it to leave accused Republican Representative Mark Meadows of a racist stunt earlier this year Mister Cummings had them hugging how did he do the station might consider a deep state representative but many of the officials who have broken ranks and testified behind closed doors in recent days are career civil servants adding to bypass the administrative state to get stuff done the examples of pushback we've seen have not been partisanship as he claims but rather unwillingness to act as but what an inadequate picture of the man that is at a time when our partisan identities can tend to include everything else Mister Cummings is reminder why it's wise always to start with the everything else when Baltimore descended into racially charged riots in two thousand fifteen and president trump has attributed the entire impeachment inquiry to a conspiracy of partisan bureaucrats buried and the permanent government of the United States. He's Mister Cummings linked arm in arm with residents to walk through the streets singing this little light of mine a day after Democratic Representative Rashid coming shouted at his Republican colleague Representative Trey Goudy Gentleman yield you have made several inaccurate statements but Mr Gowdy held no the first president to become frustrated by the vast apparatus of the US government yet as the Watergate and iran-contra scandal showed trouble comes from sends on his behalf says Rebecca amber a former State Department attorney who is now a Boston University law professor in an email this story was reported by Peter and Teaching Moms to fight terrorism our first story the impeachment inquiry the President hinges on testimony from people deep in the federal bureaucracy but that's not necessarily ominous all press hands of his personal lawyer. Rudy Giuliani a move he said he disagreed with a political appointee in former trump donor Mr Sunland is not the sort of person the admit because it was in a memo they got that morning and you can tell the ones who it's coming from their soul and with Mister Cummings it's coming from his soul you will it's not about politics to him he says what he believes. Mr Gowdy told the Hill newspaper and you can tell the ones who are saying it it's most is for the US to remain active in the region withdrawal from Syria is causing concern for decades. Israel's foreign policy has all now two are five stories we look at Israel's concern about US commitment to the Mideast a different view of Brexit for the Monitor President Donald Trump has cast himself as a staunch friend of Israel but what Israel and Benjamin Netanyahu as partners in a very public love fest but the US presidents decision to withdraw American troops from northern Syria has left did almost exclusively on the presumption of ironclad ties with the United States and in the past two years Israel he's had grown accustomed to the image of Donald Trump real reeling from the implications a strengthened Turkey Syria Iran and Russia all of which could put an increased danger with as Israel's capital in Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights don't really make a difference says Jonathan Reinhold a professor at Bar-ilan University Secretary of State Mike pompeo expected in Israel on Friday to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu analysts say a with Israeli panic awaits could onto US ally like Israel one day also be abandoned at a crucial moment like serious Kurds Mr Trump's historic decisions to recognize Jerusalem America's most important role for Israel is providing a balance of power in the region that is favorable to Israel and this move is a terrible message for Israel this story was reported by DNA craft in Tel Aviv for the Monitor here's a perspective on Brexit you Spain dozens of flags outside the British school here salute the range of nationalities squeezed into a village roughly four thousand people about it third are Brits primarily retired like an Krypton she says she has not set foot on British soil for several years I would no longer know how to live in United Kingdom home is here but like many of the one point two million Britons living in the EU she is worried about how brexit could throw her future into disarray fellner a visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe instead many will have to pay for a resident permit make fresh arrangements for healthcare and perhaps show that they are art thou shalt have no other gods before me after a youthful rebellion.

White House declares war on impeachment, sends letter to Pelosi calling investigation unconstitutional; Schiff slams White House for calling impeachment inquiry "illegitimate"; Sources tell CNN ex-GOP Representative Gowdy accepted offer to be outside coun

"Putting the nation on the brink of a constitutional crisis in this angry eight-page letter from trump's White House counsel the President says he will not cooperate with the impeachment investigation breaking news. Good evening I'm Erin Burnett out front tonight breaking news the White House declaring war over impeachment testimony from any of these officials that you've been asking to speak with either this is essentially them telling them they are not going to cooperate they are basically going to war with Democrats over the crazy and frightening those are the exact words a member of trump's team used to describe trump's call with the Ukrainian president this officials spoke to the whistle blower you to influence the next election the irony of course seems to be lost that the impeachment investigation itself is about trump trying to influence the next election by forcing frustrated for days after Pelosi launched that impeachment inquiry or viewing they didn't think it was legitimate and now you're seeing that argument behind the scenes that we've been hearing come to life crane will you cooperate with those subpoenas I always cooperate. He's not playing word games tonight it is aw and at least one National Security Council official alerted the White House national security lawyers about what trump said so those lawyers then move the caller are far from perfect not just the official says it was crazy and frightening there were others according to three sources soon after the call ended multiple age talked about whether they should report the tired between trump and Ukrainian president Zelinski crazy frightening not with the president has said nearly half a dozen times just a pass twenty four who wrote a memo quoting these disturbing words the day after the call occurred the official went on to say that he or she was quote shaken by what transpired foreign country to investigate his rival Joe Biden that's what happened on the phone call at the heart of this crisis and tonight we are learning that one official listening to that call found it more on trump's counsel writes in this letter many Democrats now apparently view impeachment not only as a means to undo the democratic results of the last election but as a strategy hasn't brought up desperately needed military aid trump said he needed a favor that investigation into Joe Biden's so maybe it was a terrific to him but to so many others on that call it was in this scorching letter that they sent up to Capitol Hill today saying that they are not going to cooperate with this because they said it was constitutionally invalid they believed that it violates president impeachment inquiry but what's interesting here and what to watch for going forward is during a briefing call with reporters after this letter was sent to Capitol Hill a senior administration official the end the president's due process rights and they're basically telling them flat out we're not going to give you any of these documents that you've been requesting and we're also not going to provide you with any transcript with the highly classified server took prevent people from seeing it a lot to get to tonight I want to start with Kaitlan collins out front outside the White House Caitlyn the White House perfect perfect perfect cool that call is a very terrific all okay there's one hours about that call to the American people he hopes that if he says what you're about to hear enough that it will seem true to enough people the call was want to say here which is perhaps for trump this is actually true because after all the president of Ukraine told him he stated Izzo tell that trump was a great teacher that trump's plane was better than his and of course when the Ukraine tonight this is it this is no no games no nuance This is it eight pages no cooperation unless yeah Aaron White House officials have been was asked well what are you going to do if the house does take up this impeachment inquiry boat that we've been hearing behind the scenes officials want them to take so they can be a legitimate probe that officials said they weren't going to entertain hypothetical various situations were going to get into that yet so basically they are not saying yes we're going to cooperate if the house does impeachment inquiry vote and it does prove successful so that's going to be something to watch going forward that even if Democrats do take that measure it still doesn't sound like the White House is going cooperate at least not willingly here Erin all right thank you very much Kaitlyn an important point right they're not saying vote and will give you everything they're saying vote and that's all there is Sion's was fired and I know you and I have talked about that and how you say everybody wanted it done and told Joe Biden Messenger Congressman I wanna I get your reaction tonight the White House is letter to the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Chairman of Your Committee Eliot Engel they call the impeachment investigation In this letter in balance and unconstitutional your responser I guess they haven't read the Constitution because impeachment is bright into a grand jury we investigate the charges and we decide whether the president merits being put on trial by the Senate and in the there is a power of the House of Representatives as you know the role of the house in this process is not to convict the president we we play a role hang out brought now Democratic Congressman Tom Osc of New Jersey member of the Foreign Affairs Committee former Assistant Secretary of state under President Obama when the prosecutor at the center of the Biden Accusation Ranger you don't get the things that the president is demanding the right to cross examine witnesses and and so forth so whoever wrote this is completely unfamiliar with the the most basic of the law in America not to mention the constitution I would also say that look we're giving them a chance here we already know most of the not participate in your partisan unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances I wanna be clear as caitlyn pointed out they don't say whether if the house operating what are you GonNa do well it's it's absolutely clear that non-cooperation can itself the side of the story we're trying to give them due process by having these interviews and collecting this information so if they choose not to avail themselves of that opportunity ax we know that the president trump asks a foreign government to to interfere in in our twenty twenty election we're giving them a chance to tell a a charge against them at an impeachment process it's obstruction of a constitutional process and it's not necessarily gonNA stop us from getting the facts because again we talk to the Congress we've already conducted one interview we will conduct more anybody who wants to talk to us can still talk to us and I believe many so you know we'll continue to talk to people and by the way the president can't order people at the State Department for example not to we already know many of the facts the president has admitted that he did what he did which the vast majority of the American people consider to be highly inappropriate that's right it's actually their loss so let me ask you though what happens here because they're they're very clear here they're not cooperating the letter the quotas president trump and his administration inquiries into Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon There was a formal vote taken why not hold such a vote well there's there's themselves against the evidence the copious evidence that we already have then I think disadvantages them this is again it's not the kind of investigation where WHO's not to cooperate I mean in terms of non-cooperating Gordon Sunland today was supposed to appear and he willingly appeared you didn't have to him he was there he flew in from it doesn't show up is they're they're saying basically I mean they're not it it looks like they're not even GonNa go with subpoena we'll look if again if they don't defend goes ahead and votes for a formal inquiry that they would cooperate then either and all the and it's pretty clear that they would not is this a constitutional crisis I mean what do you do next they just said they're not able when talking to then special representative for Ukraine you have now subpoenaed him tonight to appear next Wednesday so what are you gonNa do if impeachment inquiry against the president without a majority of the House taking political accountability for that decision by voting to authorize such a dramatic constitutional staff now I wanna make it clear does he came at a moments before he was supposed to testify team trump said you can't go and he's important right he's the guy who received the text message saying I think police really wants to deliver no requirement to to hold such a vote At at the outset I think look I think most Americans these are these are hey guys this is kinda rogers I live in active lifestyle with tons of travel during football season constantly on the go I can't sacrifice style for Americans both parties they see the way in which the polls are going and they'd like to have this vote as quickly as possible to lock their members down to for for political favors for personal political favors and and you know I suspect I think the Republicans in the house have been pressing the Erin Burnett out broad brought to you by capital group home of American fines federal issues that that are not remotely as weighty as what the president appears to have done trading our National Security S.'s he wants to tell his side of the story maybe thinks he didn't do anything wrong despite what those tax messages show let me he doesn't show up then we will you know we people will so they're only hurting themselves by taking the position and they're saying obviously that you know you all are threatening to withhold the salaries of State Department people who who you can keep the first pair of underwear and they'll still refund you no questions asked for twenty percent off your first order visit Mac Weldon Dot Com and enter they are I it appears very clearly not going to cooperate with you even if you were to take that step but they are correct that the house did vote to authorize impeachment it's partly because they want a diversion and partly because I think that they see the way this is going they they see that each day we're learning new things that are outraging

don't like this process we think it's totally unfair and here's why we're not gonNA participate in it because it's an inquiry because a formal vote has not been held but intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff he just responded to the eight page letter on tweet quote the White House says there's nothing with pressuring a foreign government to intervene in a US election they say they will not cooperate with an impeachment inquiry unless it's on their terms they mean the president is above the law the constant assume what we what we know to be true so get when she one other thing from this letter okay it says in the history of our nation the House of Representatives has never attempted to launch we get the hearings participate in the hearings cross examined witnesses call witnesses I think that's the one piece that actually does potentially appeal to the common person need to be a lawyer or law professor to understand that that's nonsensical and antithetical to the very notion of congressional oversight of the Executive Branch they are actually right that previous impeachment efforts both Nixon right and Clinton involved processes where the president's lawyers got to act oh seventy percent of guys who experience he don't get treated for it thankfully Roman created an easy way to chat with a doctor online with Roman you can get medical care for in Congress in this moment is the only branch available to oversee the presidency the letter essentially says impeachment itself is unconstitutional You don't an effort to undo the last election and interfere in the next election I think that's mostly what it is there is a kernel of something there in the letter that potentially actually Clinton basically though what that allows is the minority power party the power to issue their own subpoenas so in this case that would appear to be agree that it is a PR point that could become a problem for the Democrats because the American public wants this to be fair and the polls if they if they hold these hearings but obviously Nancy Pelosi doesn't want to hand over power to the Republicans because she wants to be able to control this she wants to be Kim let me just start with you you have read the letter the White House says the impeachment investigation is illegitimate that's what it says is that I true no I I also have a book out on the Constitution in June and people can read in their wha what the constitution says which is there's a three part system of government are and thanks Amac well I don't have to anymore I'm sure you guys can't stand shopping but it's easy and takes no time to place an order on their website the underwear shirts to keep it as short as she possibly can and get it done before the New Year so David what is the significance of this letter this total defiance showing that there is more interest in an impeachment inquiry and so I think that they're you know they may have to find some accommodation to Republicans and you don't have a vote even if you get vote you know and I'm that's a big if right I'm not even say I'm just saying the letter is pretty clear they're not going to cooperate even then you have a subpoena now issue scarborough. He's defended for Republican governors facing impeachment also with me former associate independent counsel for the Whitewater investigation. Kim Whaley and I appreciate all of you taking the time tonight the head of the House Judiciary Committee he was the lead a player what does he do he wanted to make it bipartisan and he went out and found a very very respected late let me let me go to a smaller point the bigger point locally I agree with this argument about fairness I think the Democrats have left themselves vulnerable By you know in an impeachment inquiry when we say you know the White House is declaring war possible constitutional crisis is that fair so much a legal letter I think as a public relations and political effort and I think specifically probably was there to appeal to the president's base this was an effort Mr Congressman shift is off in suggesting that this position since it's really moves towards an imperial presidency and that's exactly what the thing was conducted with an eye toward bipartisanship and trying to keep the country together over this not turning into a partisan brawl and I think the bigger point is we are now who says hey wait a minute why not do it the same way here and Gloria that's a good point and the letter notes brightly that there was a vote on impeachment inquiry in both the cases of Nixon and Stumbling Block for Democrats I mean if that happened Republicans within subpoena who Hunter Biden Joe Biden I mean it would be a circus everyone and it would go on forever but I do the graph in in this page letter and they call it a completely appropriate call yes you know but but the he is is something that appeals to to persuadable voters and that's the piece about fairness and and and in the to appear next week so what happens when they defy one of these specific subpoenas camp well the the house could move to compel in nine believe it or not you know you've got a tension between the executive branch and Congress that was built into the constitution and virtually every president since Washington in Kim not that I don't think we're anything close to a constitutional crisis here I think this is exactly the process that the framers had not sticking with traditions of the past and that is that even though it's not required by the constitution in previous impeachments the house is held to vote in order to start about this letter which was sort of striking to me and I've read it and I may be wrong but it seems to me that their defense of the president's actions are included in one bill this is a this is a letter that's about process and about Democrats about them trying to steal the election it's it's such a political document and because the the right move is probably to file an action in court to try to enforce the subpoena that's what's been done in the past in a civil action they could use their inherent power to call the sergeant of arms to actually take custody of the witness that's not going to happen and obviously that's kind of a an old tradition or number three what typically happens is you go to the Attorney General of the United States to actually take that as a contempt of Congress action breaking news we now know who the president is tapping top representative the impeachment investigation former Congressman Trey Goudy Looks like perhaps to the president tonight is this a threat to the president I believe it's a mortal threat to his presidency apple podcasts spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts this is David Pain the writer and host of somebody somewhere a true crime investigative dog fight that we're in politically this is probably a constitutional crisis at least in the making we're in a in a moment where the Democrats either have to invoke the courts a heart attack it's really really important words out of Bernie Sanders Tonight and everyone needs to hear them table no real defense of what the president actually did aside from saying well everybody knows it was okay right Ross and that is not an issue besides in Seattle homeless encampments bench somebody somewhere season to the jungle murderers wherever you get your podcasts you know issue some more demands it's going to issue a subpoena and it's going to have to decide what to do with that subpoena and and that's going to be potentially perilous thing for for the house look no further somebody somewhere season to take you deep inside a world few sane people venture as we investigate drug related Hamad using Nancy Pelosi of conducting proceedings in secret and violating trump's right to due process so much for the president saying this about Democrats demands about podcast if you're looking for a podcast that does serious boots on the ground investigation into open cases and then has a real world impact on them Correggio Republican John Door who came in with Eisenhower was there for civil rights under Kennedy to be the General Council wants the proceedings and as needed and look toward having majority to do that I think not doing that was a mistake in the Nixon impeachment The Peterborough Dino I are all of you stay with me and perhaps this is the time to read the Constitution Right Kim's new book by the way how to read the Constitution and why is out now they're all going back in just a moment because we have more sort of lay down their their gauntlet Congress the house is now gonNa come yeah I is now going to Dan has had kind of dust ups with Congress over information and that's what's going on here I think the way this is going to play out is you know the White House but of course Attorney General Bill Bar is not going to do that so I think in a lot of fronts we are in because of this black and white sort of you know doggy staff not to stats one staff headed up by John door he brought him as a Democrat to be his deputy hired over one hundred people but the the and the White House refuses that would be true constitutional crisis were close to that but right now a big brawl so Kim how close to that are we I mean you know you have the letter room is in the APP and keep in mind trick out the guy who once said it was wrong to withhold information from Congress no matter who's in charge plus one of trump's staunchest supporters with the warning due to Gordon Sunland who was supposed to appear today and he actually was there he had flown in from Brussels to testify the White House pulled him out he's now going to subpoena to a in the midst of a partisan brawl it could lead to constitutional crisis if the court way in and tell the the the White House you've got to hand over the documents you've got allow the witnesses or go around the process and talk to people that are independent and not controlled by the President and impeach based on incomplete information can I say yeah I it's it is a process and procedure document and and you know just to address one thing I'm Andy Katz the March madness three sixty five and latest edition or podcasts joined Michigan Davison teams one whole all hanging on court. You may see me with somebody of another teammate so we all love your show y'all hotel condo with deputy team I feel like that's what makes us special listening subscribe for free breaking news former Republican Congressman Trey Goudy now on team trump CNN confirming that the former prosecutor will be working as counsel up for the President Caitlyn is out front so Caitlyn tell me what you know so basically Erin what we're hearing from sources is that in recent days and weeks trump allies had reached out to own mouth that's very difficult so he could be coming on board to act as the spin person that's going to put out the message that this entire thing is unconstitutional matter whether you're the party in power or not empower is wrong respect for the rule of law must mean something irrespective of the vicinity interesting to see if he ends up the Rudy Giuliani of the Ukraine situation that is most lawyers in practice would be defending or attempting to ace well whether they're worried or not it just makes good sense this this process whether you call it a so-called impeachment process or an impeachment process this is real just WanNa jump in here because obviously trey Goudy Sided with the president on getting rid of Jeff sessions you know he led up Benghazi you can see from a resume perspective went to defend this on the merits it is on the facts and as as Gloria mentioned we don't see that in the letter and given the kind of evidence that is already out there out of the president the hand over some documents and here's what trout he set the notion that you can withhold information and documents from Congress prob- he's a former federal prosecutor has sided with trump on some key things but not on everything and that could be important everyone's back with me Ross when when you so role helping not only with the legal aspects but also with the public aspects of this and this comes as you're seeing this fight inside the administration over how they're going to proceed going Mick Mulvaney and essentially what he's going to be doing is helping with the president helping the president with his impeachment strategy from the outside serving in more general counts letter just attempting to justify basically stonewalling congress completely not with respect to just specific issues is flat out wrong constitutionally my it'll be early instead he'll be serving in consulting from the outside all right Caitlin thank you very much intrigue Audi of course was a very powerful figure in in Congress right led the Benghazi There are real investigations going on there are real witnesses coming forward they're real whistleblowers this process is real and it should be taken seriously by the White House you know not at all here he is in two thousand twelve they were talking about whether to hold ag holder in contempt on fast and furious Justice Department refused even though it's in the constitution given how things work with with Mr Trump and loyalty He expects the messaging expects consistent with devotion to him unclear whether that will happen and fifty seven percent of independence if these numbers are accurate directionally and how this moving how significant is it well it would be no doubt remember saying that he certainly knows the media would find it maybe we found it you know a few minutes earlier than he expected but it's pretty hard to say that respect for the rule of law electric but again you know this thing is just starting Erin and so people are focused on this and then you see some tray gouty though who does know Congress so well in addition to being a former prosecutor is this a sign that team trump is truly worried now realizes the gravity of the rest of the received a little bit I would predict we have to see how this all plays out we still know the generally although it's down a little bit Republicans are still hiring additional lawyers so we are now learning that triggered is essentially going to be helping the president from outside the White House right now he is not expected to join the administration in work in white loyal to this president and don't by and large support an impeachment inquiry although that you know that's up but but it might look at them and think it's great he's been on Fox News a lot as well recently Kim but trey Goudy is not the kind of person who was always just a sycophant not that way very significant because it's up substantially from where it was just a month or two ago so I think that it would show a change in the American forward with this impeachment defense strategy because initially we reported last week the president had been resistant to changes like that not only setting up a war room but also this idea of and by the president it makes good sense to bring in somebody in a light tray gouty who could help interact with Republicans interesting point just a to a political cycles so Kim do you think he just doesn't feel that way anymore well I think he just made the case for why the White House counsels this comes in the context though of a new poll this is the Washington Post Shar school poll majority of all voters according to this now back House Democrats impeachment and uh-huh and fidelity at him versus the rule of law and the constitution. I don't expect Mr Gowdy to function as a traditional lawyer might I mean David Gergen it's fascinating though I mean trey sorry fifty eight percent now that includes nearly three in ten Democrats so a third of Democrats which is obviously would be extremely significant if it is worn out and other polls post poll What does that say to you David I mean because again you look at the overall population less than a quarter people were registered as Republicans so independence actually made do you can square that with this letter either and I think we're GonNa be seeing quite a bit of that tape and the and the days ahead run the the the the war room for the White House or outside counselor in the general counsel and the White House does that Mulvaney do it who's in charge here really as you point out David though a Quinnipiac poll out today on impeachment look on the point that we're glorious making on Republicans a totally different number nine percent so I think we have to wait and see means something irrespective the vicissitudes of political cycles and you've got to hand over documents to Congress no matter whether you're the party or not the party in power or not I don't know how you these things take out yeah put on independence it matches what is in the Washington Post poll fifty five percent of Republicans supporting again to remind viewers it was fifty seven percent of the Washington What do you expect Giuliani will he appear well that's hard to say I mean if he appears in the Senate on he's obviously made clear what his terms criminal proceedings and what the framers cared about was a government that bullied regular people that's what due process before you can go to jail before but someone could you know I do think these things are dangerous right now to read to read much into they absolutely are because it's unclear you know what yeah it's it's handed support because that party is likely then to be able to drive not only the numbers up but then have a big voice in what happened so is these fights continue I do I think it's unclear still gouty is is a is a warrior and he fights hard so he he brings Oy that Democrats have been making a lot of gains among independence they could blow it if this fairness argument games gained credibility if it gained weight we've all been talking about for what a law firm would turn out it's more of a screed yeah it certainly it certainly does not appear to fit that standard by what anyone has been saying legally Gloria trump staunchest supporters warns it could be a mortal threat to his presidency one of his staunchest supporters also breaking this hour important Bernie Sanders making announcement about his campaign going forward what is he saying what does it mean MLB postseason one pitch if they don't figure that out they're going to be at sixes and Sevens inside and have more letters like this I do think this letter was a is not a work of thank all of us Americans could benefit from that right now thank you and next more breaking news the Whitehouse calling the impeachment investigation invalid and unconstitutional but one to the to this enterprise is the spirit of trump whether he's gonNA agree with a lot of the issues and what he actually is GonNa do is unclear you know is he going to actually isn't from day one and and they have something they believe as you see from the polls as gay has some traction and and so they're going to continue to go after them and everybody's watching these polls with great interest the Quinnipiac poll in The Washington Post poll of diametrically opposite on time some angles as a Republican but I do both make the same point that all Americans saw they say it's wrong Mitt Romney Rob Portman Ben Sasse Susan Collins actually came out and said what the president publicly said the other day about asking China to investigate the Biden's no matter more yes do they did they do matter more and and frighten the beginning of the question has has been which party is going to get the end trump refusing to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry the White House sending a scathing eight page letter to House Democrats here it is calling the process illegitimate this as a longtime friend out front now former Republican Senator Rick Santorum senator what's your reaction you know it sounds like he's saying look this is a mortal threat and he should be treating it that way and that could give the Republicans back some of what they're losing Kim before we go I want to ask you Lindsey Graham obviously Republican Senator has been staunchly behind the president on this issue is now saying he wants Rudy Giuliani to testify You Know Democrats are have been leery of that on republican terms but Dianne Feinstein seems to be behind this enough that you actually have some Republican Senate impeachment I'll go I'll go back to what I know well which was the Clinton impeachment because I was there it was what he did was unethical what he did so they went all over the map just like you're hearing from some of these members they didn't like what he did but they didn't reach the level and execute you you get process it's not an accurate frame for an impeachment proceeding which is really about retaining a job Not here is Mr Rowdy is this a threat to the president I believe it's a mortal threat to his presidency he's certainly should treat it that way. A confidante a loyalist of President Trump's is sounding the alarm tonight Chris Ruddy warning that the investigation is quote moving in a bad direction for president trump was absolutely inappropriate so those are significant thoughtful people you know that you respect all of them is there a chance that some of them say league postseason this October which stays on tnt off all the lead wrestling hits harder flies higher and Briggs be an if that is the way the Senate hearing goes then it would make it difficult I think especially picking up on the process argument the fairness argument for with with with what you're saying is that members of Congress may say a lot of Democrats said the president would present Clinton did was wrong what he did was inappropriate impressions on a couple of points though I wanna ask you look as you're well aware senator there are senators in your party who has said very clearly the what the president did on that phone call is wrong and that they don't need any other information that of course they want more information Blah Blah Blah but what was wrong in the transcript that that awesome to come back and ask the kinds of questions the house would want but it's important I think for people to understand there's a lot in that letter about due process due process tends to apply ending it's a job that's very difficult to get all right thank you all very much and before we go again let me just put up several and can see it Kim your new book how to read the Constitution and why is that hey as it's sort of like running a red light you run a red light and everyone says I was just one red light and then you run another and then by the time you've run ten other people start to run them because nobody's enforcing running the red light and some guy gets as enough enough we're going to start running is is that is that a fair analogy I don't think so because I think this is simply poor judgment as they know in the case they're making this letter and other places that that the the the Democrats are serious they WANNA get this president and they've been trying to get this boundary holy wrestling a new League Wednesdays at eight on TNT breaking tonight President very involved in the in the whole process that the House and Senate negotiated and going through the trial and the Senate and what what the problem was with that you should remove someone from office you should fine election and here's the difference we're talking about doing that a few months from an election when this is all said and done as opposed to the big development on twenty twenty Senator Bernie Sanders just speaking about the future of his campaign after suffering a heart attack last week here's what the senator said and I don't believe that rises to the level that you should remove a president from office because he said that at what point does it though to you right I mean if it's just someone was describing it the other presidents would do and he's doing it and and so the the question is the public at least I think Republicans say the public should have a right to have a vote as to whether he when you nominated Barack Obama to be you did that breaking news from Bernie Day Wednesday and Friday UEFA Champions League and you wrote the League are back in action refer referring to the president well I think the appointment of of Carson gowdy shows that they're ratchet up the interest and concern at the White House they should I mean the you know there repeatedly on this network they knew exactly what the kind of person they were voting for who was going to say outrageous things and at times do things that are clearly not what most stream every match on beyond is breaking news anders announcement that he is making about his campaign tonight that's next this is matt and Connor from stick to football days swing of the bat and turned the tide of October.

The news breaking tonight is extraordinarily by any measure. The impact could be profound new reporting that rod Rosenstein wants discussed recruiting cabinet members in an effort to remove President Trump from office under the twenty fifth amendment. Even reportedly discussing wearing a wire and conversations with the president and the president is at a rally tonight in Springfield, Missouri will he say anything about it? We'll be watching for that more to the point. Will he do something about it? Will he try to punish or fire? Rod Rosenstein? Who is, you know, over seas, the rush investigation, and if he does what else could come unglued the discussions between Rosenstein had were documented in memo's authored by fired FBI director, Andrew McCabe seeing here on the left. Now sources familiar with those memos have been talking to CNN and other news outlets. The story first broke in the New York Times times correspondent Adam, Goldman joins me now by phone. So walk us through Adam, your reporting about what you learn, what actually happened. Let me just start off by saying, you know, this story took months report. Okay. This wasn't a wasn't that at time trying time week. We worked on this story for months, and we started gathering information building a picture of these chaotic days at the Justice department and FBI shortly after James Comey was fired as director on may ninth two thousand seventeen. And so while we learned was on may sixteenth of two thousand seventeen. There was a meeting and in that meeting, the depth the acting director of the FBI agent McCabe wrote in a memo that rod had brought up the twenty fifth amendment and any memorialize that memo. And then in a separate meeting, rod had raised the idea of wearing a wire and the white. House, our our understanding of the events in the room where that rotted raise the idea of wearing a wire or secret listening device in the White House to expose this option. So the two core facts of this story are rod talked about wearing a ride in the White House and in Indra McCain's memo. He cites rock bring up the twenty fifth of minutes. And in what context do you know? The idea of a wire was was brought up because there have been a one of your sources describes the comments about secretly recording the president as being sarcastic in nature while others tell you he was completely serious? Yeah, there there are certainly a the white, how the department of Justice has version of the the context. Our version from our reliable sources indicates that this was not a flip and comment. This was not sarcasm and let me just reiterate something. I said early on team at which was the reason it took me so long. To get this story is the fear people had in me finding out this information if it simply just been rod made a sarcastic joke, people wouldn't have been reluctant to tell me. People didn't want to tell me, but for the context rounding the wire with deadly serious, at least they believe that and they knew the potential impact. This story might have. Yes, they certainly, I wanna read the statement that arose didn't put out in response to your reporting and says, quote, the New York Times stories, inaccurate, and factually incorrect. I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me be clear about this based on my personal dealings with the president. There is no basis to invoke the twenty fifth amendment. I want to give you a chance to respond to that. And I also just want to point out when he's saying there is there is no basis he's talking in the present tense. He's not saying I never thought there was a basis. Yeah, I, that was my read. I mean, I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna parse rods statement. I think myself and other news outlets have all now including CNN. Recorded have reported these basic facts that are not dispute. And those two basic facts are rod be idea of wearing a wire in the second basic fact is in an Andrew McCabe memo that he wrote in the special counsel has rod raised the idea, the twenty fifth amendment. Adam, Goldman, a great reporting. As you said, you've been working on a long time. I appreciate it reaction from democratic congressman Adam Schiff ranking member of the house intelligence committee. I spoke to him earlier. Congressman, if this is true of deputy attorney, general Rosenstein did in fact talk about wearing a wire to record the president. Is that appropriate whether there was some sarcasm involved or not? Well, I, if it's sarcasm, if this was said ingest, then that's one thing. If this was said seriously, it's something completely different. But look, I think, probably at any given time during the course of the administration, a great many people have wondered whether this president was fit for the office and whether they had to contemplate the extrordinary step of invoking this article, whether they came close to doing it, whether they were deliberating about it when the president was in one of his most erratic and dangerous moods. It's very hard to say the idea of a discussion about the idea of invoking the twenty fifth amendment that is certainly a serious thing to to bring up, especially for somebody in his position has. I mean, do you, would you have any concerns? If if he did actually have discussions about that, regardless of the wire. Well, I would have concerns certainly, if the presence conduct rose to the level where you had top people at the Justice department or other cabinet officials who were openly discussing ruminating or joking about whether they needed to pull the trigger on the twenty fifth amendment or whether they needed to start gathering evidence with the president, be justified in firing Rosenstein, absolutely not. And we ha- we can't dismiss the possibility. Maybe the probability that this is being teed up by the presence allies who want to get rid of Rosin rod Rosenstein. And I think we have to look at this in the context of what's happened over the last week, and it begins with an about face in the congress of for months and months. The Democrats on the intelligence committee have been urging the release of the transcripts of the witnesses and the Russian vestige Asian, and the Republicans refused Mr. Nunez refused Mr.. Gowdy refused. Then all of the sudden. The chairman goes on FOX and says, we want to release the transcripts. Now, what precipitated this was at the Manafort guilty play? Did the Trump lawyers say we want access to this because the very next day, the president himself issues, this injunction that he wants these classified documents, released a whole different set of classified documents. This looks like a coordinated effort for those who believe in. You know that there's a deep state conspiracy against the president, doesn't this kind of fit into that that idea? Well, it could fit into a completely different idea and that is that the president is so unstable that lifetime career public servants who have worked in democratic administrations and Republican ministrations. Many of whom who are Republicans like rod Rosenstein have to contemplate whether the constitutional provision applies when the president is incapacitated. I mean that is alarming. For those that are ready to believe. There's a deep state, those kooky conspiracy theories, certainly they will seize on this as they will seize on anything else. And it may be very well being pushed out there by people who think that this is a useful way to defend the president and Rosenstein is fired. What then what happens? What happens to the motor Rosenstein were to be fired. This would be another clear demonstration of obstruction of Justice by the president and the immediate aftermath. We have to sit or, you know, what does that mean into terms of our system of checks and balances? What is the response of congress? And probably most importantly, will there be any Republicans who are willing to defend the institutions of our government? Sadly, they have been very few in number. I would hope if there's any effort to obstruct the investigation, like the fire rod Rosenstein that congress would pass a Bill in stating the independent counsel law that would protect Bob. Congressman ship. Appreciate your time. Thank you. Thanks Anderson. I want to continue this discussion, including how stunning just the fact of it all is and where this might lead series implication some pundits, even using the word constitutional crisis joining us CNN political analyst, Gloria borger, David Gergen, Carl Bernstein also senior legal analyst, John dean, Gloria, or you've been talking to people. What are you hearing about about Rosen's scenes, job security tonight? Well, you know, you wouldn't bet on his job security, but then again for almost a year, we've been talking about Rosensteins job security. The president has been tweeting about him. He stopped lately. He seems to be focused more on on Jeff Sessions. I know that Rosenstein is very important right now in the Muller investigation. Don't forget if the special counsel he's a special counsel's boss. If the special counsel says, you know, I want to subpoena the president. He's gotta go to rod Rosenstein and get permission to do that. I think the president's attorneys believe they have a decent relationship with rod Rosenstein. I'm sure they would. Rather he not be fired and create this kind of crisis, particularly right now at the same time as you're going through the cavenaugh hearings. And the question about what happens with judge Cavanaugh, but nobody can predict what Donald Trump is going to do. He's going to read this story and he's going to have to decide whether a, he believes the New York Times which he normally doesn't believe and be whether he believes a memo written by Andrew McCabe who is also been a focus of his ire whom he doesn't believe. And if he does believe those two things, then he's going to be really angry at at rod Rosenstein. He may ask him maybe Rosenstein of where queues himself from the investigation. Maybe sessions will fire him or maybe the president will because, I mean, this is not that I time we've heard about officials talking about the twenty fifth amendment. In that New York anonymous, New York Times op Ed? Electorally by a senior official, the senior official said that there were whispers about that. I, I think that the the conversations about the twenty fifth amendment are are not big and damaging story. I don't think that's the big story. This story really is, was he serious about taking a wire into wire there? An inter, listen secretly tape, the president, United States. That's unheard of. There are those who, of course, who are you not at the New York Times with other people have been, you know, trying to catch up with the story that he'd be sarcastic. It sounds like he would being sarcastic in many ways. How I mean, bringing in a wire to try to capture disarray. Yes, seems like an odd thing. I mean, disarray seems to be like more of an ongoing thing. It's not necessarily something I would think you could immediately capture on. I think that's right. I sort of assumed the wire was only to catch capture the disarray, but apply would apply to the. Fifth amendment issue the, here's here's what he's like, real life buying scenes, but I must tell you if the facts bear out what Adam has been reporting and he spent a whole month on it that he was serious about warring going in with a wire, then I think is probably one of the dumbest mistake I've ever seen a public servant make to get into conversations like that since the sensitive points I just invites attacks. And I do think we have to remember that he works at the pleasure of the president. That's the appointment into the president, can no longer trust him. He's justified and asking that person to leave. Now, I think we've already, I don't think he'll do it quickly. I think rather we're still looking at after the midterms. They don't want to upset the cavenaugh business obviously. But just as importantly, they, they don't want to have this in the middle of the campaign. Carl, is it appropriate from deputy attorney general to be talking whether it was a joke or not? About surreptitiously recording the president United States. Well, if it's a joke guy, think it's it might be appropriate. I think we gotta look at a number of factors here in one is that we are in a constitutional crisis in part of that crisis is for instance that there ought to be committees of congress to which Mr. Rosenstein could explain what happened what he said. And there be a bipartisan committee of congress at which some facts could come out in an impartial way, and we would learn the full story after the New York Times has broken this usually important piece of reporting. Unfortunately, there is no such committee because we are in a constitutional crisis where the congress in the United States is totally dysfunctional on top of that. We have a president of the United States who is contemptuous of the rule of law that one of the things that Mr. Rosenstein we know has been concerned about for months and months, is that. Contempt for the rule of law. The president's lying. And now he joins a long list of people in this presidency who fear that the president of the United States is not fit to be. The president is a danger to the national security does not understand what the proper use and function of the Justice department is. So all of these things are converging and they're converging at the time of a mid term election in which the president is going to throw all of this meat to his base and see what what can be chewed up to somehow keep a majority in congress. But meanwhile, we have the spectacle of little confidence in the president of the United States by those around him, little confidence in the congress of the United States by almost anyone and the one element of the system that's working the press. First amendment. The fake news of the New York Times is the president would have. It has broken this story. CNN has confirmed elements of it. All of the critics. The press is doing its job. It's the one element that's working here. I want to get to John team, but I gotta take a quick break. I Jon Voight will come back to you directly coming up. Next. The president has just weighed in on this used a new word stench when describing the Justice department alive, update on that next and later a new Senate deadline for the woman who says, supreme court nominee, Brad Kavanagh, sexually assaulted her details tonight.

Number thirty thirty. Well, there's more breaking news on, tonight's lead story on rod Rosenstein discussions. He reportedly had about using the twenty fifth amendment to remove the president of the possibility wearing a wire. President Trump is just reacted CENA's. Kaitlan Collins joins us now from the rally where the president's speaking, Springfield, Missouri. So what did what did the president say. Long to bring up the Justice department, and he told the crowd look what's being exposed what's happening over there. He didn't mention the abroad rosenstone by name, but he said this instead. You see what's happened at the FBI. They're all gone. They're all gone. They're all gone. But there's a lingering stench should we're going to get rid of that too. So Anderson Anderson. No mention of Rosen signed by name there, but you have to believe that's a thinly veiled reference to that stunning New York Times story that has pretty much looked one question on everyone's mind will the president fire gone Rosen time because of the story president said that they're, but they're still been no official formal response from the White House. We'll wait to see if he says anything else twice here at Springfield tonight. Anderson. David Gergen Gloria borger Carl Bernstein and John dean, John the president's talking about a lingering stench. I don't know if that means people left behind lingering. What do you think it means for rod Rosenstein? Do you see him being removed by the president? Well, it's hard to tell his stench. I can't. You know, he he finds stench is lots of places, but I think with with rod Rosenstein and this leaked information about his behavior, I don't think it's a fireable offense. I think he's going, you know, if you look at the sequence of win, it happened particularly this is at the time of the Komi firing and he had been, they'd done a job on him. They'd be they'd lured him into writing a memo and said that was the that made that the pretext for firing Komi. He was under a lot of heat for as result of that. And he had a lot of reason to this trust the White House at that point. I, the other thing is apparently he was present when some people went over there for interviews to be FBI director, and he was appalled at the president's interview techniques. So you know who knows what really goes on inside that White House that might be why he was suggesting these. I certainly don't find them outrageous. And I've gotta tell you it's not unprecedented either. I was asked by the prosecutors to wear a wire and I refuse to do it. Why did you refuse. Because I think it's unfair. I think it's an unfair situation. Same reason I didn't have a wire recording capability on my telephone, although a lot of people in the Nixon White House did I think I think it's a pretty shady act. I, you know, I guess the larger question is right now, is anyone safe add the Justice department sessions? Clearly, I mean, has lost the president's confidence. Not sure if he ever had it since he recused himself. Now the scrutiny on Rosenstein them if the president wants to, he could just clean house tonight or the day after the midterms. Right. And what about his new director of the FBI? Chris Wray. I mean, the president just came out and talked about the FBI and the, you know, the lingering stench over there at some point. Chris Wray is going to have to come out and and defend and defend his people and defend his department. So I don't think anybody is safe over there. I think it's a question of timing. It's very clear sessions. It's going to be gone probably after the election, and I think the sort of. The game right now inside the White House has to control the president and to try and say, look, don't do anything right now because we have this election coming up in forty odd days and we, we want to get the cavenaugh nomination passed. We gotta get him confirmed. This is really important to your base. So just sit tight if you possibly possibly can. And we all know what Donald Trump that that may last a couple of days, but we just, we just can't predict he, you know, he's going to Bedminster this weekend the last time. If I recall he was a Bedminster awhile ago and that was when he wrote a letter saying he was gonna fire, Jim Komi. So. So who knows what will happen, of course, would impact would firing Rosenstein have. Well, could president would then be in a position to take action against Muller. And I do think one of the things that I'm shift talked about his right and that is this really puts pressure on the Democrats trying to get some Republican votes to to build some sort of legal wall to protect the Muller investigation. You know, the Republicans have what we don't need. This suggests quite the opposite is the day is coming when you really do need it. Let me just go back to one thing if I might. I want to clarify. One thing I said, I think just sitting around talking about is the president fit for office under the twenty fifth amendment. I think that that's not a big deal want. People are talking about. We talk about all of them here. What is what is different is if you begin to say, maybe I'll make a wire and I'd like to go over and talk to Kelly general. Kelly chief says the White House may talked sessions and maybe we can get a group of the plot, the downfall of the president United States. That's a big serious matter. I think that's why this story is big is because the combination of wire and the idea of organising group. Carl, do you agree with that that that the involvement, you know the, the mention of Kelly and sessions. Yeah, I again, I think we need to know more about the context that time story is a big window onto something and now is the time for more information, but what you need to keep the the bigger picture in mind of Muller. This is all about the mother investigation and and absolute determination of the president of the United States to obstruct it to demean it to undermine it and shut it down. That's what he is told everyone around him. He means to do, and this is his response and is part of it. And it is incumbent on the congress of the United States to make sure that that does not happen. It is the other part of the system that is working. We have indictments we have information pleaded to, we know that the president's personal lawyer is now trying to tell things to the special counsel. The president is in the crosshairs have been investigation and. Acting like someone who is trying to obstruct Justice and keep the facts from becoming known. That's what a lot of this is about John. Do you see at some point congress going into question rod Rosenstein about exactly what he said or didn't say. I noticed just before we went on the air number of tweets, one from a member of the House Judiciary committee asking that there be hearings where Rosenstein and everybody in the meeting as well as the documents be brought forward. So they could be seen. And it's another thing on what would happen if he did fire Rosenstein to Muller. The next person is the last time I looked the next person who has a confirmed post in the rankings of seniority. Rankings of the leadership is a solicitor general, and that's who would take charge of the investigation that point. So here Anderson, here's the important thing about rod Rosenstein to keep in mind also, which is right now there's a negotiations going on about the president testifying, and if Bob Mueller decides that he wants to subpoena the president, he has to go to rod Rosenstein and get permission to do that. This subpoena, the president. If rod Rosenstein isn't there if say the solicitor general is there, would it be more likely to get permission or less likely to get permission? So that all factors into this as well, David Gergen, John dean, Carl Bernstein. Thank you very much. Going to dig deeper into the political dimensions of this next with the leading conservative Rick Santorum juiston powers and Jeff Toobin join us as well. My name is Paul Shirley, and I've gone on a lot of dates. I've noticed something on these dates. I often find myself telling the same stories stories about my mother teaching sex Ed stories about playing college basketball stories about playing NBA basketball and almost dying in the process. We all do this. We tell stories on dates because dates are winning get to explain where we've been in. What we've seen in why we think like we do my name is Paul Shirley, and I hope you'll check out my new narrative podcast stories I tell on dates, you can subscribe for free on apple podcasts or wherever you find your favorite shows. Well, moments go to rally in Missouri. The president made an apparent veiled reference to the story out today about deputy attorney. General rod Rosenstein talking about the Justice department and FBI said quote, there's a lingering stench, and we're going to get rid of that too with Cureton powers Senator Rick Santorum and Jeffrey Toobin Senator Santorum should the president get rid of rod Rosenstein. Well, look, if if what is being reported is true that he was actually trying to recruit people to or say he was going to recruit people to remove the president and that the. Offered to wear a wire again, not adjust or otherwise, but actually was serious about wearing a wire. Those are pretty good grounds to remove anybody. I mean, that's that's not something that's not a person that you want serving you at any level in government. So if that's the case, but I, I have some real serious doubts about about this story. This just doesn't. This just doesn't sound right to me. So your doubts in wasn't that it was sarcastic or didn't happen or that it? Yeah, either. I mean, maybe part of it was sarcasm maybe part of it, the maybe as a faulty memory or or a deliberate attempt, potentially if someone to to stir things up here right before the election and get the president. Like I think the people in this town who believed that they can, they can prod and poke the president to do things that he is that he will react to to things. And so the idea that maybe someone would put some information out there to or not true to to get the president to prod the president. To act rashly is not beyond the pale, Jeff. What do you think? You know, it would be an unbelievable story about Donald Trump that he stays up nights, reading briefing books. That would be a real Schaaf. This story is just consistent with everything else about him. I mean, you know, yes, it's an amazing story, but it's consistent with other people who talk about who talked about the twenty fifth amendment with other people who think this president is psychologically unfit to be president. So you know, I again, my hat's off to the New York Times for yet another great scoop, but it's not like this is some bolt from the blue that's uncharacteristic of this president. This is what a lot of people who deal with them things. Although the idea of the number to the FBI wearing a wire to tape the president. I mean, that's it's amazing Justice department just but it is. It is amazing. I think it's worth noting. He did not wear a wire. I mean, so that suggests perhaps it was said in frustration, hyperbole. But the general idea, especially in may of last year when the firing of James Comey was like a thunderbolt. I mean, this was something that has never been done in American history since the laws change to have a controversial firing of FBI director who has a ten year term precisely to insulate himself from this sort of political pressure. It was a shock. And so the fact that Rosenstein thought that extreme measures might be justified seems reasonable to me. Curious, syndrome, we're talking about, you know, this could be people wanted to the present act rashly. There's a number of people in Fox News already tweeting and saying that the president should fire rod Rosenstein right away, right? A lot of these people also have been saying this for a long time. So I think that they've been looking for something that they could use some. Sort of smoking gun for reason to do it. And so I think, unfortunately, you know if this story is true, it does give Donald Trump. I think a rationale that would seem reasonable to most people if he decided to go ahead and get rid of him, even though I think it would just be a rationale that they've been looking for for a long time, you know. And so there is a real question again. We don't know one hundred percent that this this happened, but I, I agree with Jeffrey is saying it's very consistent with other stories that we have heard in recent days, whether it's Bob recent weeks, whether it's Bob Woodward's book or the anonymous piece that was in the New York Times talking about how people feel about the president. And so it's it's even more news worthy that it's touch to a name and his touch to such a senior person at the department of Justice. And but at the same time, I think any president, if they heard that they're, you know, deputy attorney general was behaving this way probably would wanna fire them. Rosenstein is actually just put out a new statement because a lot of people were commenting about. The nature of his former statement. It says, I never pursued or authorized recording the president. And any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the president is absolutely false. That's the second statement this when I guess clearing up Jeff, you're I just, you know this, what you learn in law school. It's had off you skate and right in impenetrable, but technically, true ways, you know, because in the initial statement, he said that there is no reason to invoke the twenty fifth amendment which he does not. And as you pointed out doesn't tell you it's the present tense and that revision does not address that present tense issue. The fact that he may have thought at one point that there was a reason to invoke the twenty fifth amendment. And that new statement suggests he never advocated for the removal of the president from office, but the mere fact that the deputy attorney general might have discussed. Jesus is the president out of his mind. You know, I is that I think is. In and of itself pretty remarkable even if he didn't advocate for if Jeff, I mean, if you were done Trump, would you want rod Rosenstein working there? No, and I think he's gone. I think the day after the election, if nuts, if not the hour after the polls close both sessions and resin Steiner gone and we will have an extraordinary fight over who the replacement is and whether that person can be confirmed because that person or those people will be the people deciding Robert Muller's fate Senator Santorum. If you were still in congress, would you want to get to the bottom of this? You know your party control, they can some some Rosenstein to the hill right away. No, I, I don't think it's really necessary for the congress to get involved in this matter between the president and and and his number to manage Justice and and licking it. Listen to that that that second statement, I thought the first was week. I'm not too sure. The second was a whole lot of improvement. You know, hearing hearing those denials. Not really on point is. Far as I can see is not incur is is is not encouraging me as someone who is real serious concerns about the way this investigation has been handled. It's not encouraging me that he actually didn't contemplate that. He didn't say he didn't contemplate it. He didn't say that he, he may have said something about a wire. He just said, he never, he never did anything. And that that to me is is Jeffrey said is is reading a bullet proof statement that doesn't really get to the underlying question Curson when you hear the president tonight talking about a lingering stench, do you have any doubt that he was going to get rid of Rosenstein whether it's sooner or later it would be surprising that he didn't, but it's pretty interesting if you think about the fact that he's going to rely on a report by the New York Times which of course everything else they report is a complete made up lie. So it just goes back to the point. I mean according to him, this goes back to the point that he'll do it because he's been looking for a reason to do it, and this could be what gives him, you know, I think a good cover for doing something like this. Here's some powers over sin tournament Jeff. Toobin. Thanks very much. Next one Cavanaugh. Supporters attempt to point suspicion, tweet cabinet, all lookalike blew up in his face. And the question was he actually acting alone. Hey, it's Howard Beck, and I've gotten money mccutchen the NBA vice president of referee development and training on Bleacher reports. The full forty eight referee served the game, our players, our coaches, and our franchises are the game. And that's a huge distinction that I- referees understand and it's wonderful to serve this. This game is the best game ever invented to my biased opinion. And I, we love serving the game. So check out the full forty eight. Now on the Bleacher report app, apple podcasts, and Spotify. Well, there's more breaking news tonight, a new deadline for professor, Christine, blazey four to agree to terms of her testimony against the pre court. Nominee Brett cavenaugh Senate Judiciary committee chairman, Chuck Grassley says, if there's no by ten eastern time tonight, which is an hour and twenty minutes away the there will be a vote on the nomination on Monday as this is unfolding. Another part of the story has been unraveling and it's important because keeping modest could be all about a group of powerful, but unaccountable people trying to spin you the story concerns, an alternative theory of the alleged sexual assault featuring on alternative suspect. It was floated by an attorney named Ed Whalen, his conservative connections in the Washington legal and political world run deep his according to the Washington Post part of the effort to secure judge Kavanagh's confirmation. Why he did what he did, how he did it and on whose behalf, if any, or now, key questions which Democrats may ask judge cavenaugh next week, there's new reporting tonight and politico that he did not do what he did on his own. Now, the story erupted last night after Whelan sent out a series of tweets, which. He's since taken down in them. He said that professor Ford may have mistaken Brit cavenaugh for a different classmate. Now, what's more and this is one reason we're staying far away from those tweets. Waylon actually named that classmate whom he suggests may have sexually assaulted professor Ford who was fifteen at the time. The man is now in middle school teacher were obviously not compounding any damage by giving out his name. However, the Washington Post contacted professor for she said, yes, she remembered that person, but no, he is not the one. She even recalled being friendly enough with that person that she wants visited him in the hospital by this morning whale and was apologizing for making quote, an appalling, an inexcusable mistake. Since then questions have grown about whether this was all part of a coordinated campaign. One to obviously take the spotlight off, judge Cavin on put it on someone else that's been because of how this all seemed to come together in the pro cabinet buys biosphere watch what judiciary committee member Orrin Hatch said on Monday. It wasn't at the party. So you know, there's clearly somebody's mixed up. I think she's mistaken. I think she's she's mistaken something, but I don't know. I don't. I don't know her. So there is saying someone's mixed up. I think she's mistaken something. Now the comments got some attention, but at the time there was no massive significance to them. A lot of lawmakers were talking about the allegations fast forward to Wednesday when Waylon the lawyer and others began dropping more hints that more along the lines of what Senator hatch said was coming Waylon, tweeted, quote, a horrific incident, similar to the one the accuser ledges may well have occurred, but if so, she's got the wrong guy. Capital wasn't present as this and much more will confirm Matt Woodlock staffer for Orrin. Hatch also tweeted in the run-up to this to quote, keep an eye on ED's tweets in the next few days. Then yesterday Waylon let loose laying out his Doppler gang or theory and this morning, right on cue FOX. And friends rolled it out to their audience. He looked at what Chris Ford told the Washington Post and figured out, okay. These people were named these four people. Where did they live and looked at what she had said and figured out what house it made have had happened because it was a house closest to the golf course and then realized whose house it was and looked at a picture of the young man who lived there at the time who was classmate of Mr. Kavanagh's put up side-by-side images. They look a lot lot again today will took down the tweets, apologize, then late today. Now the twist, politico, citing three sources reported that an outfit called CR CR, c, public relations, advised him on how to hype. The theory, political also reporting that judge Cavanaugh was not not aware of what his friend Ed was doing on his own behalf. Let's clear though in any of the reporting is whether or not Mr. Whalen coordinated with the White House or judiciary committee according to the Washington Post cavenaugh has allies. Specified allies have privately discussed mounting defense along the lines of the Whalen tweets, namely one that would not question whether an incident involving Ford happened, but instead would raise doubt that the tackle was cavenaugh separately today. The president's relative restraint about going after the accuser seemed to disappear. He tweeted quote, I have no doubt that if the attack on Dr Ford was as bad as she says charges would have been immediately filed with local law enforcement authorities by either her or her loving parents. I asked that she brings those filings forward so that we can learn daytime and place. This drew sharp reaction by a member of the judiciary committee Republican member. I was appalled by the president's tweet. First of all, we know that allegations of sexual assault. I'm not saying that's what happened in this case, but we know that allegations of sexual assault are one of the most unreported crimes that exists. So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate in Ron. Well, that after Markle week end day is where things stand tonight joining us to seen in global fares analysts in Washington Post columnist max boot. He's just written about this for the post with us as well as carry Severino chief counsel and policy director of the judicial crisis network which supports judge capital carries. I said earlier, Whalen was reportedly working with PR firm on this theory. I understand you're also represented by the same PR firm just for the record heavy. Advised you on the story at all. Have they given you any. Talking points or guidance on on how to frame this. I saw this at the same time ever and also that I saw in Twitter feed and was the surprise surprises anyone on this. But you know, I, I think the key thing is here isn't what ad Whalen tweeted. It's it's what is going on with this story because we've seen, obviously, these allegations coming out published by the Washington Post 'em by everyone else that frankly are very, very thin facts to support them. It would be very helpful for everyone to have the opportunity to hear Dr Ford. And right now we're in this back and forth negotiation between the Senate Judiciary committee and her and coming up on ten pm deadline to find out. Is she willing to take their counter offer a granting several of her requests in order to to testify before the committee? I think that would really help clear a lot of this up just I don't think you exactly engine. I just want to give you the opportunity to answer just for the record that PR firm that willan was working with that. You apparently have some connection to have. They given you any advice on talking points or or this idea? Well. That's that's my knife PR firm. So when you guys said we're talking about, I will. And I said, I haven't seen this. Does that sound like the right thing to say? Sure. I mean, this is this is the the question is, is really all we're going to have this hearing and that is this going to go forward. Not some conspiracy theory that I I know you're interested on this. I don't. I don't understand what you said. I have a PR person. I I know how PR works. I'm not clear. Did the PR for give you the same talking points. They get at Wayland. That was coordinated. No, they look, you know how this works. I I'm coming on your panel. They say, here are the topics are talked about, I say, great. Okay. I know about this. I know about this and here's an a here. We've talked about four, here's here's what I'm saying on this, and that's that they didn't. They didn't say. There's this alternate theory. Here's some of the evidence of it. No, no, no. I mean, that's that's, you know, that's, that's. That's. That's at walence theory. I, I'm, I'm not. That's not. That's not my game here, or I'm more concerned about this. This this, the judiciary committee and our our it. Are we going to get to a moment where we can actually get some closure on this or at least get to hear some more of the information and they've they have, as I said, acceded to as many of her requests as they could. They've offered to delay the hearing. Now to a Wednesday, they said that she could have a single camera in the room only at cetera. So. Though which is probably one of her, her biggest requests. They have been in fact performing an investigation in the Senate Judiciary committee has investigative powers as well. So they've taken testimony from judge cavenaugh from March judge from another man who was allegedly at the party, and they've reached out to several of the people who were alleged to be at the party, try as well as Dr Ford and that's under penalty of felony. So this is the Democrats ought to be participating in that. It's something that's supposed to be a bipartisan investigatory process and and the the Democrats instead of actually participating investigation if chosen to try to pretend that somehow handing it off to the FBI is going to get a lot more accomplished. It's not have the opportunity they should be taking it. Oh. Ford one was the FBI. Well, of course the FBI should be involved in this Anderson as they were in the Clarence Thomas case in all other cases. But it's striking to me how Carey doesn't want to talk about what Ed Whalen did. And I have to sit here and tell you, I am ashamed. I am a to call myself a conservative when I have seen the kind of smear tactics. The kind kinda McCarthyism that Ed and engaged in this is I have seen a lot of crazy in callous things in Washington Anderson. This is the most crazy and callous I've ever seen in order to get his friend Brett cavenaugh confirmed onto the supreme court. He named another person as a sexual criminal, who's a middle school teacher, an innocent person, put his name out there, put his picture out there. This is despicable. This is disgusting. Why hasn't Brad Kavanagh disavowed this? Why hasn't he denounce this? Why don't people like carry disavow and denounce this? This is not saying this to me part, and I say, this is a lifelong conservative. This is part of this descent into madness of the conservative movement, which is led by conspiracy theorist than Donald Trump, and they have adopted his win at all. Cost ethos, they don't care what norms they break. They don't care what rules they violate. They don't care what lies they destroy. All they care about is getting political winds like getting bread cavenaugh confirmed with the supreme court. One other point Anderson we need to find out of bed. Cavanaugh was involved in this because Ed Whalen is not just some random guy off the street. This is not Alex Jones. He is a pillar of the Washington legal establishment is a friend of Brett cavenaugh. He is involved in trying to get Pratt, cavenaugh confirmed. So Brett cavenaugh needs to go under oath and answer questions. Did he know about this miratec? And if he did, if he didn't know it, he needs to withdraw immediately. That would be disqualifying it in of itself. Carey, is it appropriate? What Waylon did putting out the name of somebody else? I can't. He has already apologized for that, and I absolutely agree. He should not have put the name and picture out as he did for the same reasons that I, I'm frustrated that the Democrats leaked Dr Ford's allegation. What about, isn't this? No. No, this is disgusting. No comparison between this. The Democrats did not leak doctor Ford's name. She came out herself on Sunday and interview the Washington Post leaked it, and the democrat Senator in a democrat. Mountlake renege your not telling. On Sunday. Okay. Daily. Some someone only the Democrats and her that was. In the Washington Post right now, that at Waylon knew her name before it was made public. And so that's something that needs to be investigated by the House Judiciary committee about the Senate Judiciary committee. We're going to leave there. Gary Severino, Mets, appreciate him coming up. Come out bell and Anthony bourdain to trip to Kenya together for one of the final episodes of parts on known, come out joins me to talk about his memories of that trip and, and of course, Tony next mustard.

Let's say that the final episodes of answering Danes parts known, we'll be bittersweet is obviously understatement. They begin this Sunday, starting with a trip to Kenya with Kamau bell host of CNN's United States. American come out joins me tonight. What was it like working with with Tony on us, you know it was. It was really, and I'm not saying this. I'm not oversight is a dream come true because I've been watching him since before he was on CNN. We travel channel food network and sitting on my wife than girlfriends couchville like, how do you do that? You know? So when I got the job here, I felt like I was already in some sort of bonus round. And then when we met at the Emmys he was like, do you want to do something together? So I just it was I felt like I want to contest the thing that always struck me about it. I never got to travel with my used to go eat with him and he would force me to eat. Yeah, he really, we talked about that. Join you doing forcing you to eat. But the thing I always took away from watching his shows is that they were real journeys that it wasn't just like something being shot for television. You felt like it's really an immersive journey? Yeah. Yeah. He talked a lot about what I would say is the art of making TV like he wasn't a protein it like we're making the TV show. He we, he actually showed me a clip of the West Virginia show. They should let the aired last year and about how he was working on this segment. Really, he really was trying to skip the music to work. And so he really approach it like, this was life's work. He wasn't as the host of a show, right? Yeah, this is the first time I understand you had actually been to Africa. Yeah, it's my first time when he said at one point, where do you want to go and come out with a Kenyan name? It's Kukuh and Kenyans who when they meet me ours, like you have to go to Kenya. I've never been a Kenya and he was like, I've never been to Kenya either. He hadn't been Kim. I know that was the reaction I had. I was like, I haven't. You been everywhere like nine times he and so, but it also had never been to Africa. So he really took care of like and also talked about how he was watching me react. What was? Yeah. What what did you think of being east Africa? I mean, for me, it was there was sort of a there was two things happening. One was like, I've read a lot about African-Americans going to Africa and sort of expecting this sort of I'm home run and how that has worked out. So I really was very tentative about sort of acting like that. But then the more I was over there the more Kenyans it'd be like, well, you know, you're not from here, but welcome home, you know? So. But then the other thing was just like Nairobi is an incredible city. I mean, it's this mix of urban and rural, and you know, you'll be like standing at like basically like this modern coffee shop, and then somebody will walk by with like a herd of goats. You know what I mean? And we went on safari at this label conservancy and it just came, everything shifted. You know, it was something which quieter and you're something like there's like, went out and safari in lions are walking right around us. And so it was a lot it's gotta be. I mean, I know bittersweet is it's a cliche, but I mean to to see this and and between being gone, it's it's to be hard to watch. Yeah. I mean, it is hard to watch, but I, I'm so aware that it's. Nowhere near as hard for me as it is for people who had had him as part of their intimate lives long time. Yeah. So I mean, even someone like you talked about you, you know what I mean? There's people is sort of came to this late and so I feel like I'm at the tip of this and we were sort of beginning a friendship. But you know, like I MO Fallon who directed the episode and basically Tony raised on the show to be this like incredible producer and he still editing the show. So for me, I feel like this is I have the easiest job in this. Yeah, we all miss him other four two. I'm glad you too. Thank you. Oh, b. tune in for the premiere of the final season.

Leaked video shows right-wing group bragging about drafting GOP anti-voter bills

"Tonight on all f. c. You believe that january. Six was was an insurrection from the deniers of the insurrection to the q. and on congresswoman chasing around tonight how the maga mob is running your twenty twenty one republican party bad new reporting on the right wing group coordinating this state by state effort to roll back democracy working with these state. Legislators to make sure they have all of the information. They need to draft the bill. Plus the activists sting to try and crap. Fbi and trump administration officials trashing the forty fifth president latest on the nightmare in gaza tel-aviv. Momentus day for everyone who follows cdc mask guidelines if you've been fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask at all in starts right now. Good evening from new york. I'm chris as there are two hundred. Twelve republicans in the house representatives on january. Six just hours. After an angry mob of trump's supporters stormed the capitol trying to stop the peaceful transfer of power one hundred and thirty nine of those republicans. A sizable majority voted. To overturn the election. Right they voted to give the mob exactly what it wanted. What donald trump wanted even after the mob assaulted lease office and broke windows. Vandalized artwork and chanted infamously hang. Mike pants hang. Mike pants most of those republican representatives or not nationally famous. There are of course some. You could probably recognize from republican caucus. Let there those leadership. Like of course minority leader kevin mccarthy who orchestrated the purge of congressman liz cheney of wyoming from her number three role in leadership for refusing to lie about who really won the election. There is of course the notorious congressman from georgia. Marjorie taylor green. Who has been stripped of oliver committees about whom we will have worn a bit. There is you might recognize this guy. Congressman paul gosar arizona. Live will never forget from this. Incredible exchange jury hearing in two thousand eighteen. You said about a bias morning. I watched by the way. I'm a dentist. Okay so i read body language very very well and i watched you comment and actions with mr gowdy. You got very angry in regards to the gold star father. That shows me that it's innately a part of you in a bias. Yes the dental body language expert. You may also remember that six siblings flesh and blood went out of their way to cut an ad begging people not to vote for their own brother. Gosar still one of the big. Stop the steel proponents. We'll have about him as well. Okay but maybe you know those right if you follow national political news very closely most of the republican caucus fairly anonymous. Keep in mind one of two parties in america. Republicans are on the cusp of possibly retaking the house. Surely through redistricting and gerrymandering whatever you just dip into a sample see where the median republican is. It's truly unnerving. Yesterday was not just the cowardly voice. Vote to remove congressman cheney and the backbenchers like another somewhat infamous. One congress madison. Cawthorn crowing about it. There was also a house. Hearing weren't just incredible literally. Incredible alternate history of january. Six was being written in real time. Buy for lack of a better phrase. Random unknown republicans. Here's what this is congressman andrew. clyde georgia. now he's new to the congress. He's naval veteran. He filled doug collins seat his first day of work. The very first aid showed up work january third and three days later on his fourth day. I guess the office he was in the capital with all this happening and then yesterday this is how he described what happened that day. There was no insurrection and to call it an insurrection. In my opinion is a boldface line. Watching the tv footage of those who entered the capital and walk through. Statuary hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchion san robes. Taking videos and pictures you know if you didn't know the tv footage was video from january. The six you would actually think that was a normal tourist visit. Okay this now. Infamous comment has given rise to an entire micro genre of responses including pictures of the bloodiest most violent most awful moments the day with the label of tourists and of course. Just hours after congressman. Clyde made that ridiculous claim this really disturbing bodycam footage for metropolitan police officer. Michael released showing some of the most harrowing moments when he was dragged into the mob beaten and teased. Think off. You can't do this. I got kids pleading for his life like you do with tourists today. Congressman clyde went onto an event for the national police. Week called back the blue bike tour where he had the opportunity to amend his statement and apologized to members of the blue like officer known but he passed by. Do you regret saying that. Five five people died including police officers in your hearing today on wrinklies. If you're honest in your statement what's wrong about it when that's what he said about what you just said. You didn't take what i sit in context. That'll explain to us. Explain to listen to what i said. Okay we did so. You believe january. Six was was an insurrection. The contempt on his face. The anger of gary you right. We all saw what happened that day. I watched a man. Try to gouge. The is out of cop. Over and over on footage i watched. I don't know if congressman clyde believe what he said or if he's lying neither of which reflect well on him or the party is part of that movement the one that clyde is part of is now dominate the republican party. I mean clearly so people that congress empl go sir now stars and here he is in the same. Hearing about january six demanding the doj leave the writers alone manager woman. Mike constituents demand answers but the truth is being censored and covered up as a result to de-legitimize harassing harassing peaceful patriots across the country. Wherever you think of is the most divisive republicans basically a stand in for dozens of other republican members of congress who as best as we can determine are basically all in the same information diet largely believe the same things leaving the same alternate reality of majority voted to overturn the election. Only ten at two hundred twelve. It's less than five percent voted to impeach donald trump. The second time around for obviously inside the violent insurrection that had all of them cowering behind doors in their workplace and now some undetermined number one completely erase that day from our collective memories it was just a bunch of tourists and patriots. That is the ascendant faction of the republican party. That's the dominant faction in leadership. Kevin mccarthy okay kevin. He's not the one in control as is very obvious. From the last twenty four hours and everyone on the hill now lives in various degrees. A fear of this faction including every single republican officeholder governs with this group looming over them like for one example. Brad referenced burkard. The georgia secretary state who flatly refused donald trump's criminal solicitations to quote find votes to overturn the election and as a result now has he trumpet doors. Primary challenger in congressman. Jody ice another member of the house. Republican caucus there are also those who have to share workplace with members of this republican party like congresswoman alexandria. Ocasio cortez new york who was confronted and harassed. Yesterday by congressman. Marjorie taylor green. Who's since she has no committee. Positions apparently has nothing better to do than stock around and challenge her colleagues to debate washington. Post congressional correspondent. Jacqueline alumini witnessed the interaction between the two congresswoman firsthand. She's the author the posts early morning newsletter power up and she joins me now. Jackie since you were there you just sort of say. Tell us what you saw. Yeah chris appreciate you having me. This was an aggressive confrontation that we witnessed outside the house chamber from marjorie taylor green Which is the latest in a pattern of behavior from her that we've previously seen but after houseboats alexandria as walked out of the chamber aired only quietly and chasing after was Taylor green falsely accused. Her of supporting terrorists. And we witness this my my colleague mariana and i. We witnessed her shouting. Hey alexandria twice over in an effort to get her attention in a very aggressive and confrontational tone ocasio. Cortez ignored her. She stop walking green than picked up her pace and chased her down started shouting at her and asking her why she supports antifa and black lives matter which she falsely referred to as terrorist groups she continued to chase after her and shouted to that ocasio. Cortez was a coward and that she was failing to defend her radical socialist leaps. I should say that. I was going to do a customer. Cortez a said that. I think in response to a question about this and she worked in a bar and used to have to throw people like this out of bars all the time. So she's sort of used to it just to give people a sense here and i. It's i i struggle to communicate to people how bad toxic strange nab normal the environment of capitol hill and that congress's right now but just for people that don't cover congress everyday like this is. This is not normal. This doesn't usually happen at all right. This is novel. You're exactly right and i've been grasping for the right analogy all day but i really the only thing i can really communicate is that this was shocking behavior and i actually was so taken aback especially in this kind of environment that we're working in right now where you have lawmakers and reporters quite frankly who are scared to go to work every day in the wake of the january sixth insurrection. That killed five people that the threat this confrontational tone is again it. It took me a back so much. So that i didn't even have the presence of mind to record this interaction. This is the kind of behavior that would get you expelled from school. It's kind of behavior that apparent would never tolerate from a child let alone a member of i've covered washington politics. I've been on the campaign trail for about a decade now and i've never seen a lawmaker. An elected official or really anyone in a professional setting. Behave in such a manner up. But i think as you pointed out. What's most troubling about. All of this is that cumulatively. What over the course of this week is just the latest series of data points of disturbing trend of information prices and of erosion of political uncivil norms in some political circles. Yeah that's diplomatically said. But i i would agree. I mean just. I would just hammer home the point you made. I mean again. All this is in the context of a violent mob assault on that building where people were fearing for their lives and there were people going around saying they wanted to kill lynch. The people with the gallows erected like even if this happened absence that this would be unnerving but that is the context here. It's inescapable right and also we need to be clear. This is a pattern of behavior for taylor green. That's being enabled by gop leader. I asked minority leader kevin mccarthy about a story today it's been on the homepage for now twenty four hours and he claimed that he hadn't seen it and nor had talked to marjorie taylor green but she has been accused of this kind of confrontational and threatening and aggressive previously. We've seen it. On tape. With her. Costing david hogg saviour of marjorie taylor green starred the the parkland high school shooting and congresswoman bush from missouri and her staff accuse taylor green of a costing her in a tunnel after bush. Ask green to put on a mask for her safety. Green accused bush of lying murderer. Tillerson has been unrepentant about her behavior. We asked her about it repeatedly today. She's doubled down on it and has really brought the behavior that we've seen trump rallies past four years to the halls of congress jacqueline alumini. Thank you so much your reporting tonight. Really appreciate it. As a former republican congressman carlos. Cabello has a special insight into the evolution of the house republican caucus and he joins me now at one level. I think taylor green is a bit of an outlier in the republican caucus but but not in this respect. There's people that have to do trendsetting like they look for the latest styles and they go to specific like adolescent girls. Were fourteen right. Who like they're like what the future of style will be in six months and to me. Margaret willard dream. There's one of now but they'll be ten. They'll be twelve they'll be fourteen. That'll be more and more of the caucus after the midterms chris. It shouldn't surprise us. That people like marjorie. Taylor green like all ghosts are feel emboldened because this is what happens when you punish when you diminish when you try to silence people who are telling the truth. Which is what happened to liz. Cheney yesterday what you do is you embolden. You empower you. Encourage those who are propagating lies. Those who are not only propagating lies bring those lies into congress and taking a hostile attitude toward their colleagues. It's really sad what's happening in the house. Brisk was not always like that. When i was there not that long ago it was tense. People were passionate. There wasn't a whole lot of bipartisanship going on but there was a minimum level of respect. That has gone but it shouldn't surprise us because republican leadership basically sent a signal to these members back. What they're doing. Is okay. That people liz liz. Cheney who are being annoying by telling the truth those are the people that need to be marginal. I use that word because it's so palpable. How annoyed many members republican caucus are with her refusing to shut up about the basic truth of the election in january six. Like and that's how they just like enough enough of that we don't want we don't want to hear it and that's really the problem right like a new wing to them because they have their sights set on on on the future. There's also now this they're going to vote to replace and stefanik from from new york has has put herself forward. She's got the donald trump endorsement chip. Roy a republican from texas. Who i should note is to the right of stefanik and his voting record but voted to seat. The electric did not vote. He was in the minority republicans who did not vote to install the loser over the winner and donald trump has now come up to come out to say no. Don't go with chip. And i guarantee you. He's not gonna win that vote. Well chris and that just goes to show. That policy doesn't matter in the house. Republican conference right now liz. Cheney is extremely conservative one of the most conservative members of the house. I know her at least panic. Well they're both friends. Liz is a lot more conservative than a lease but in the republican party of today. That doesn't matter. only one thing matters. Are you willing to be loyal to donald trump. So what republican leadership did with cinema says not just to their members but i think a lot of voters throughout this country that. Hey if you're conservative if you believe in low taxes if you're pro-life that's fine but what's really important is that you agree and support donald trump. No matter what he says. And i think that's a dangerous message because if you're trying to regain the house majority maybe regained a senate majority. You need to grow your tent not kick people out of it and the message this week is. Hey if you don't agree with donald trump. we don't care how conservative you're take the road. Yeah i think. I think you're right. I think there's some danger i do. Think that that the dynamics of sort of thermostatic public opinion and midterms and redistricting essentially puts wind back so republicans but it is striking. You know there's new polling out today. That republicans outran donald trump and districts by fairly large margins district after district after district. He's at fourteen percent with independence. Right now he's at thirty percent approval rating this this in any other context. It would be easy loser that everyone we running away from a loser loser loser. It is so bizarre. When you look at the polling data when you look at the political performance that this is what people think is the to their political northstar and house. Republicans are lagging. I mean you made the point. And then the data support the point. The country is moving past donald trump. Okay people are tired at people who voted for him. Understand that this is. This is not good for the future. This isn't sustainable. The this was a very difficult time in our country way of putting it. It was the deadliest year american history. I'm more diplomatic than yorker. Yeah time house. Republicans are doubling down and it just seems like a strategic mistake. Maybe it'll cost. Maybe it won't because like you said. They have structural advantages going into next year. But it just doesn't seem like this is the right message to send up his talk. I'm looking forward to speaker of the house. Paul gosar in twenty twenty three. That's going to be fun. Carl's cabello thank you very much ever. Since the election. We have seen the number one republican priority on full display state after state after state restrict voter access. It didn't seem like a coincidence. This was happening in fact it seemed like a well orchestrated centrally planned undertaking. And now. there's new video showing it. Yes it is exactly what we thought it was. This is what our teams are doing. This is what our focus is in this election integrity. Frank so where are we. I mentioned the eight states. I want to run through these quickly lila. I always the first state that we got to work in and we did it quickly and we did it quietly. Honestly nobody noticed. We noticed here. On all in we noticed some incredible new reporting from ari berman on the coordinated effort to undermine voting rights next in texas. The state senate is considering a bill. That would surprise surprise. Make it much harder. Vote in next election as it's written right now. The bill would limit polling places in early voting. How partisan poll-watchers to videotape voters. Which sounds awful. It's one of hundreds of such bills. Mostly sponsored by republicans introduced in state legislatures across the country. Voting restrictions have already passed in eleven states under republican control. Arkansas florida georgia idaho. Indiana iowa kansas kentucky on tanna utah and wyoming many of the bills sound so strikingly similar. It's been pretty clear. They weren't born in organic laboratories of democracy. Tonight we have a better idea of where the language these bills coming from mother. Jones obtained leaked video of a private meeting between the heritage foundation donors in arizona last month in it jessica anderson that's the executive director of heritage sister organization appears to basically brac about helping write these voter restriction bills and give them a grassroots vibe working with these state legislators to make sure they have all of the information they need to redraft the bills in some cases we actually draft them for them or we have a sentinel on our behalf. Give them the model legislation so it has that grassroots. Go from the bottom up type vibe. We have a set not give it to them so it has that grassroots vibe asked for comment by mother jones. Jessica anderson responded. And i'll read the whole thing here. We are proud of our work at the national level and in states across this country to promote common central forums. That make it easier to vote and harder cheat. We've been transparent about our plans and public with our policy recommendations and we won't be intimidated by the left smear campaign and cancel culture. Don't worry jessica. We are not here to cancel you. Senior report mother. Jones broke the story today and he joins me now. It gives context. What the event. Who has jessica anderson. And what is she describing the video obtained. Hey chris will thank you for having me back so jessica. Anderson is executive director of heritage action for america. Which is the sister organization of the heritage foundation. She is at an event on april. Twenty second in arizona for their top donors and she is going through and talking about how they are writing what she calls. Model legislation restricting voting rights all across the country. That heritage is literally writing these bills or republican state. Legislators in taxes in arizona in georgia in florida. And that's why we've seen so many bills. Suppressing the right to vote in such a short period of time. That are all basically exactly the same. It's not a coincidence. That's happening heritage is literally coordinating this effort and bragging about at this donor me. Yeah in fact. She talks about the iowa things interesting we did. Cover it on the show by the way and it was one of the first. She says we sort of did it. No one noticed and we were kind of laughing yourselves like we got away with one more or less here. She is talking about pressuring governor camp in georgia to not lose his nerve to make sure to bulldoze through. Take a listen. I was able to down with governor camp three days before he signed the election. Package in georgia and i had one message for him. Do not wait to sign that bill. If you wait even an hour you will look weak. This bill needs to be signed. Immediately is jessica anderson's background well. She had trump administration. Officials are right yes. She was a trump administration official. I think what's so revealing about that is heritage from the very beginning quarry of the entire campaign to pass voter suppression in georgia. They helped write the legislation they lobbied for the legislation and then once the legislation passed they said to. Brian kept you have to sign it immediately. And that's what he did. He signed it within an hour. They gave the same message to republican governors in arizona in florida in texas. They've done the same thing. The governor on a rush to sign a new voter suppression laws. Just an hour. After it passed in arizona this week. Rhonda's santa's signed the voter suppression bill in florida as a fox and friends exclusive. So what you have here is one of the most influential dark money groups in republican circles writing voter suppression laws in secret to make it harder for black brown in young people to be able to vote. I mean this is really shocking development for democracy. Yeah and one of the things you see in this presentation. They are very the states doing this. And now there's this federal legislation. There's there's a hr one s one. The four of the people act which would be a sort of threshold voting access which it would regularize across the country as well some campaign finance reform aspects bunch of other things. They have that just anderson again. The woman that you saw there who runs that heritage sister network a person you should know about. Who's doing a lot of work that you would want you know about. She she talks about killing each are one and s one as top priorities for that she does. She says if they don't kill s one we lose our republic period. That's the language she used so they have a two pronged approach here. They're spending twenty four million dollars to make it harder to vote in eight battleground states and they're trying to block the federal legislation. That would make it easier to vote and the the fascinating thing here is that you have dark. Money funding an organizing fresh. That's the exact thing the for the people act would stop. That's why the for the people act has money in politics and voting rights combined. Because this is what we're seeing. We are seeing an attack on voting rights. that's being organized and funded by millions and millions of dollars in dark money so these issues are connecting. The only way to fix our democracy is to look at these issues holistically and that's why conservatives and republicans are so terrified of the for the people after they know it will fix our democracy in the very ways that they're trying to undermine it. Yeah a amazing reporting as always are just anderson. We kept our promise you. We are not canceling. You want everyone to know about the work. You're doing thank you so much already. Thanks so much chris. Don't go anywhere. You do not want to miss this next story which i read twice because it was so nuts the right wing campaign to spy on government officials. They suspected were disloyal to then. President trump astonishing exclusive the new york times publishing tonight detailing plot to discredit government officials who are perceived as anti-trump including fbi agents and crumbs own national security advisor while he was serving in the role according to the times a network of conservative activists aided by british former spy mounted a campaign during the trump administration to discredit perceived enemies. The president inside the government. According to documents and people involved the operations that included an undercover sting operation to was national security adviser. Hr mcmaster after. He reportedly called trump and immediate with the intelligence of a kindergartner. Ties reports that a woman was recruited to stake out. A restaurant mcmaster frequented. She would wait with a hidden camera and whenever mcmaster return himself the woman would strike up a conversation with him and over drinks. Try to get him to make comments. That could be used to either force into resign or get them fired. The effort was abandoned in march. Twenty teen. when mcmaster resigned. The times says it is unclear. Exactly who leading the operation. And who might have known about it quote whether any of mr trump's white house advisers direct knowledge of the campaign. It's unclear but one of the participates in the operation against mr mcmaster said she was brought on by someone with access to mcmasters calendar. I'm joined now by former. Us attorney and former. Deputy assistant attorney. General harry lipman host of talking. Fed's podcast well harry. What on earth what. What was your reaction to this piece. Yeah you know. It's like part all the president's men and part borat on would be done. You would think by four and operatives there so many odd pieces to it. And i should say it's great reporting as you mentioned however if there's a lot of speculation much more to come out but there seemed to be you know. A kind of adult tells very much with what we knew where the president's obsessions about his own deep state enemies now of course mcmaster whose the central narrative here. It's bizarre because all he has to do is fire him as exactly he did for no good reason than anyway we do. Know project veritas. Which is a pretty notoriously sleazy group there. I'll just put it out. There is in charge of an fbi sting operation well funded and that's a big part of it here. By the way they're getting a lot of money and From conservative causes millions of dollars and that could be a part of it but the basic idea. It seems to me is right now. We're looking at private actors though. Who'll this threat. Here's mike and pull read. Here's this red. Here's eric prince. If it does penetrate to the government they'll be much more. They're more to investigate for now. Just like the sort of rate burglary stage of water. That's exactly it private accuracy. Who seem kinda crazy. Does have very strong nixon vibes. You've got these you know that was what nixon hattie. How these people in creep the committee reelect the president and he had these. I eh guys. Right he's cuban pigs and they're all running around doing the off book cloak and dagger operations and some of them are comic and some of them are not like you know breaking into daniel ellsberg's therapist's office for his files. I mean that's not funny stuff right. So i mean here. You've got project veritas. Operatives created fake profiles on dating apps. Alert the fbi employees. According to project veritas employees and the screen. Fake names for the women. that's right. They arranged a meeting arrive. The hidden camera microphone. Okay all this stuff is sort of cloak and dagger hijinks but there is a question of like who's funding this. Who's ordering right if it becomes a broader investigation that is where you'd wanna start just as watergate. Follow the money now right now if there are federal crimes. They're they're pretty penny ante crypt. But there's certainly a credit kit for congress to investigate and it would have a subpoena power. You had one member of a long term member of the judiciary committee who as you mentioned said. She was recruited by someone who knew about mcmasters calendar. Was that person's name. You know i forget. There are certainly more things to delve into by either the press or congress as of now it doesn't seem criminal or at least not in a kind of notorious inside government way it was the same of course with the watergate it first and there is a lot of smoke and it does vary much chord with the things we know. Trump was so obsessed about and a lot of actors who it stands to reason would want to curry favor with him. More than it's hard to say at this point but this is the classic kind of article that that is an a sketch that will be filled in by other members of the press and maybe congress in the days ahead. Yeah the the point there. I mean there's there's two things that are striking one is that he could just fire. Mcmasters you set right. So this fact this crazy thing that gets spun up the president fires on national security by security adviser so all this weird this combination of paranoia and impotence and then kind of like off book third party operations and then the second thing i thought about when reading this is this is pretty early in the administration and we're learning about it now. You always get the sense that we we still just have kind of tip of the iceberg vision of all the hijinks and all the stuff happening during those four years. See that's really true. And we know what had begun with. Project veritas as an effort to ferret out unions and other bad actors did dovetail into this government operation. That was in fact whether criminal or not completely nasty business right in the lineage of gravity or lee atwater at a minimum. It's scandalous in a political sense. If if so many resources were being devoted to finding the enemies of trump and remember the mcmaster part seems murky and he could and did fire him for no reason. The fbi stuff's a little bit more nasty and right they were trying to get them in compromising positions and then do what would that we don't know. But that could have been really scurrilous harry as always illuminating. Thank you very much. thanks chris. Going to be coming up. Is there a mask free summer on the horizon. What you need to know about the a big announcement after this if you're fully vaccinated and can take your mask off. You've earned the right to do something that americans are known for all around the world greeting others with a smile. a moment. Many people have been waiting for happened today. The cdc updated its guidance on wearing masks. Getting us one step closer to the way that life used to be. Anyone who is fully vaccinated can participate in indoor and outdoor activities. Large or small without wearing masks or physical distancing. If you are fully enacted you can start doing the things that you had stopped doing. Because of the pandemic we have all lungs for this moment where we can get back to some sense of normalcy news. Here is fully vaccinated You no longer need to wear masks even doors. Now there are some caveats. Obviously fully vaccinated folks must still abide by local business and workplace regulations. And of course. I think a lot of stores that you go into and things like that or prior masks. Because they can't check who would who isn't vaccinated is still requiring masks on planes and trains. But the government's decision to update its mass guidance for fully vaccinated people incentivizes people to get vaccinated which away we hope incentivizes progress because and i cannot stress this enough the data we have is just uniformly amazing on what the vaccines are doing. Cova deaths are down to almost the lowest point in the entire pandemic cases are down to where they were almost a year ago. Those numbers we think we hope will continue to drop the more people get vaccinated right now. Nearly sixty percent of us for have received at least one dose. The president says he wants to get that number up to seventy percent july fourth. It's a stretch but doable. After the cdc announced their new guidance today writer derek thompson. Atlantic made a point. I think underscores the two main truth. This virus one. It's an indoor explanation virus that mostly spreads through the air and the vaccines work as advertised. It took way way way way too long but we finally have reached broad understanding of how this fires works and how it's transmitted and how to suppress it. We just have to keep vaccines going at. We could start to get back to normal life. Theodor herzl wrote his classic work. The jewish state calling for jewish state in then palestine in eighteen ninety six that was of course decades before adolf hitler's rise to power and the murder of six million jews by the nazis and while the unspeakable horror of the holocaust is what finally convinced the international community create israel in one thousand nine hundred the jewish state persecution violence and fear of diaspora jews. Long predated hitler's rise. For centuries and centuries jews across the world particularly in europe lived in eliminate state of fear the various governments that had them as subjects could turn on them at any point and even if the state did not put them in the crosshairs often. It was their neighbors. Who did the knock the door. The mob with a list of names. The pogroms whipped up by demagogues marauding the streets these were the elemental constant threats that stocked jewish life on this planet for centuries it is what brought so many jews to our shores here in the us and the great waves of immigration in the late eighteen eighty s. It is for this reason that the images coming from the streets of israel right now are so morally shocking emits rocket fire from hamas and punishing air strikes against apartment office buildings in gaza by the israeli army about of communal. Violence has been unleashed on the streets of israel synagogues have been set on fire and jewish businesses vandalized by palestinian israelis and the city of load while mobs of young angry. Jewish israelis have been organizing on social media and prowling the streets targeting palestinians finding cars and beating them. I should tell you the footage you're about to see is very disturbing but it is worth watching. This incident happened in israel. Crowd dragged a palestinian man from a car and beat him while the news cameras wrote. Israeli anchors use the english word lynch lynching. Describe the mob. It was not an isolated incident. This sort of violence and intimidation has been documented in cities like haifa to us in jerusalem israeli politicians from prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu on down have condemned the violence as intolerable in a video from his office. Who said quote. You can't take the law into your own hands. You cannot come to an arab civilian and try to lynch him justice we cannot see arab citizens. Do soda jewish citizens. This will not stand for the last. Several decades critics inside israel and in palestine and the us and in nina international community have been sounding the alarm and they have been saying the same thing with the expansion of israeli settlements in the west bank would have the effect of destroying the possibility of two state solution but more than that they have warmed. It would have the effect of functionally annihilating the conceptual. Coherence of the jewish state's. It would channel the conflict inside with violent mobs now on the streets of israel that prophecy looks pretty prescient liberals journalists and foreign policy analyst who grew up in east jerusalem one of the cities. We are seeing this violence. Erupting and lisa goldman is a journalist and co founder of nine seventy two a magazine that provides independent news and commentary from israel and palestine. Lisa i just want to start with you. Because i've been consuming a lot of israeli media over the last twenty four hours and it has been striking to me that there is a kind of genuine palpable sense of shock to the conscience of the these images of these mobs on the streets and i wonder if you could just talk about what that what that has meant inside the conversation inside israel and palestine. Wow it's a it's it's huge. People are indeed shock to am. I should say that these gangs are a combination of baiter. Football fans Very racist football fug soccer thugs Who are called la famiglia. there's also settlers radical settlers coming in and buses and cars in groups to the west bank. your from the west bank sorry And just general. You know a lot of racism in israel because the communists have become quite powerful in the government And this is something that the chief of police actually said explicitly today that a member of knesset from a party called the jewish power party which is a honest party had incited antifa a jewish intifada inside israel that he personally had his name. Is martin vera. He's a member of knesset he's notorious radical racist subtler and very has been inciting a quite powerfully. And what you see now by. The way is not a particularly a reaction gaza. This is something that is You know there's been a lot of violence growing Inside of israel due to numerous factors that have to do with the between palestinian citizens of israel and jewish citizens of israel inside israel but also There is a lot of breaking down the barriers that used to exist between palestinian citizens of israel or nineteen forty eight palestinians who are as i said citizens of israel and the east jerusalem palestinians who were stateless but have israeli identity cards Previously there was the solidarity between these. Two groups was not high and that has recently changed. there isn't a lot of solidarity that's growing and A national identity. Which is something that netanyahu probably would have wanted to prevent. But he was so intent on cultivating the far right to shore up his power and his base that he has unleashed dodds extreme racism on the streets this row just for context and when you say a hottest referenced america honey who is a extremist wing. Rabbi who led a faction later in his life. He has been the sort of founding father if a lot of extremist elements in israel. Further on relig- abril you. You grew up at palestinian with jewish city with israeli citizenship. Your father wasn't a mom and al aqsa mosque in jerusalem. You've written about the conflict for most of your life. What what are you seeing. Now what he. What are these images on. The streets mean to you. This is what we all have been warning against. And we were appealing to democrats in the united states across the world especially those who for for all their life. Fault with african americans here to affirm equality equal rights and to protect multi racial democracy. The united states are seeing. Israel is trump has on steroid. What you're seeing in the street of is when you like a prime minister to now weaponized ethno-nationalism and belligerent traces. An unleashed in the streets. And now it's the dominant sentiment in israel politics israel society. I never in my life Seen anything like what. We're seeing all over for israel in cities like mixed cities Supposedly also tolerant Existence was the character of those cities in hyphen fi. Not going w. everywhere. What you're seeing is years and years. Where these nationalist extremists the militias mob the equivalent of the proud boys. Where so legitimize normalize. Now they're sitting in parliament and there are under beebees allies. These are people who would probably form a government. So he's been Embracing these guys. So when our government in the united states says that we support israel there are asking the palestinians who are occupied to protect their occupiers. This is what they asking under. In the meantime they're actually sponsoring underwriting. The occupation in the occupied dardis respite while Underwriting again the ethno segregation everywhere else and the country is imploding. It's not imploding. In we've seen this graduated increasing. But it's imploding politically socially economically and racially and religiously and what i fear the most. You mentioned my father who worked in the mosque. In one thousand nine hundred four those extremists jewish fanatics tried to blow up the mouse. They were got caught. They were sentenced and they were pardoned in ninety six. They kill the prime minister of israel. It's crabbing they incited against him. They call him a traitor of the jewish people and they killed him his the guy that killed him is now a gallery is a hero of these nationalists. We see with where they surrendered is going and i fear. It's going to be bloodshed and what you saw these nights. It's going to become the norm in israel and palestine. Pray for that. Not to be the case. Religion real and lisa goldman. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate it. That does it for all in. You can catch every weeknight at eight o'clock on msnbc. Don't forget to like us on facebook.

They Cant Keep Track of Their Own Lies # 979

"Get ready to hear the truth about America on a show. That's not immune to the facts with your host. Dan bongino. I want him to Dan Bongino, shell producer. Joe? How're you yesterday? After that incredible show. Thanks to you. And Paul out of what a great show you say. I haven't recovered yet, man. I mean this. Zirk was. Yeah. Yesterday's show. Number nine. Seventy seven episode nine seventy seven is going to be by far most listen to show ever. I gotta tell you though, folks. I'm a little surprised that the story we broke yesterday me being in the news business now for I guess what? Eight years yet thousand eleven I started doing media stuff. And when I ran for office. I'm actually stunned that Joe, and I am polyester. They broke a major story about the one source. Everybody used the spy on Trump we entirely completely discredited yesterday. And I'm I'm not kidding. I'm seriously astonished that nobody picked it up. It was not a speculative story. It was not some conspiracy theory we provided hard evidence yesterday by Christopher Steele zone words that their own source the FBI and the Central Intelligence Agency Christopher Steele for their entire basis. The spy on Trump couldn't even get his own story. Right. Got the biggest detail of the biggest story of the century wrong. With an eight days, and he blew it. I'm gonna get into more of that. I want to cover a little bit of the China stuff today with the terrorists how ladies and gentlemen, the Chinese are destroying their own population. Here I am not a fan of tariffs. I've been clear about that. From the start. I am a free. Trader the problem is the Chinese are not engaging in free trade they're engaging in mercenary trade, but what they're doing. Now, Trump has them in a corner because they're actually destroying their own population. I'll explain that. I've got a couple of the things about Brennan to today's going to be a great show. Let's get right to today's show. Brought to you by our buddies at Harry's. Listen, these are the best razors out there, the best razor, here's mine. It's my Harry's razors.

Harry's dot com slash bungee. All right. Let's go. Okay. So yesterday not relitigate yesterday shows. No need to do that. You can listen to it yourself. But I am I'm disappointed because we show these two screen shots yesterday. The first which is the circling of the Coen prog information here at knows on October eleventh a State Department official interviewing Christopher Steele. Who is the source of the information used to spy on Trump, Christopher Steele tells the State Department official on October eleventh something about Coen, prog how do we know that because you could see your notes right there? If you don't have to see if you're listening on audio. She has written notes that say Coen slash prog. It's uncomplicate if you want to watch it. Go to YouTube dot com slash Bongino. There's no need to though. Now, exactly eight days later Christopher Steele zone dossier. There. It is highlighted October nineteen twenty sixteen for those who can't do math on the liberal side. October nineteenth is eight days after October eleven twenty sixteen his same the same guy. Christopher Steele is saying that his source was unsure of the location of the meeting. He just told the State Department happened in Prague, either steals, lying or steel didn't write the dossier. I'm serious when I say this. We don't break a lot of news on this show. Even though we could believe me, we could Paula my line about that. Mad at me today. She's not act elaborately not answering. Some people Email me. They're like, you know, we can't hair Paula on. I know I know it's like, Mr. producer on the Lavigne show. Rich doesn't get onto Mike either. Either this both certainly Snerdley over at Limbaugh. So. Folks, we broke this huge story, we could break more news. And we don't because I I prefer this show to be more analysis after breaks we're not we're not trying to be investigative reporters here. But yesterday story was critical. I'm stunned. Nobody pick this up. There's only two logical conclusions from this that Christopher Steele was a liar. Who couldn't remember the biggest detail of his biggest story at the FBI used them in court or he didn't write the dossier. I'm gonna leave it there. You guys figure it out. But one more note on this look at this redaction, there's a red line around it here. I'm requesting some crowd sourcing help from the brilliant investigative journalists out there in the audience. I mean that I get emails every day that are phenomenal Judy to seventy nine all of you in the type version of those same written notes, I'm talking about that Kavulich State Department official Kathleen Kavulich who's interviewing St. on October eleven in typed version of the notes member the memorial ization of that interview. There is a Redan. Action here about travel histories. I suggested yesterday that what's underneath that redaction has to be critical. I'm gonna ask my audience. The redaction is labeled very suspiciously Ianna, and it's due to their citing an immigration and naturalization act section two twenty two about visas into the United States. If anyone in the audience has an idea about why the FBI would cite the immigration and nationalization act and the issuance of visa. To redecked a key piece of information, and what Steele told Catholic I have my ideas. But I'd like to hear your thoughts. Email info at Bongino dot com. I'd love to hear what you think. Okay. Moving on so I-, titled this section of the show. The next section. You guys verified this, right? I got some information yesterday from a trusted source. I'm not going to say who why where how we're going to say. Details of of what it is specifically, but confirming my Friday show conclusions at John Brennan was the puppet master here. Ladies and gentlemen. John Brennan is going to go down. I'm sure that I have insisted from the start that the three letter agency people were in a world of trouble. I'm not sure the politicians are going to get as much trouble for this. Because there's the political. I don't think the Republicans up on the hill of the guts to go after them. But the three letter will agency people are in a world of trouble and Brennan's one of I have no doubt. Now, Brennan Marshall, this whole thing Brennan was working with foreign Intel figures and people like Christopher Steele to get information to push the FBI to open up an investigation at the Trump understand what I'm telling you here in the lead. This is going to be important because I have some new stuff from yesterday. And I also have a stunning piece of video by tray gouty who's usually more reserved but on Hannity last night Trump to tactical nuke on this. Oh, yeah. It was good. Joe's hurt. I already gave him the clip to record. So he knows. What I'm talking about? John Brennan is the head of the CIA at the time, this whole spying thing is going on with Trump, right? Brennan has no law enforcement powers. I cannot emphasize enough. There's a lot of confusion among some in the audience who still emailed me about this Brennan is an intelligence official. He has absolutely zero law enforcement power. He needs the FBI to swear out warrants in court to spy on Trump. He needs them. He cannot swear out a warrant. He has no power to do that nor to any of his officers in the there's a CIA police force. But they're not that's a totally different thing that police their campuses and things like that. But they have no power to swear out wards. He needs a warrant to officially what Devin newness calls the legal spying. He needs a warrant to legally spy on the Trump team for Obama Brennan's marshalling this whole thing. I no longer have any doubt. He can't do that without trying to trick the FBI into opening up an investigation again, I'm not giving a pass to the FBI. Please don't misconstrue my words. These people hated Trump that people at the top McCabe Komi Komi who's the worst commes even worse than Brennan because he has zero zero. Commes will screw over anybody. These Brennan's wanna go to baba. It is maliciousness commes the worst Komi McCabe, stroke date. They can't stand Trump. They're eager to be baited into it. So they do know homework at all in the information. They get so on Friday. I put out on the show that again, I'm not giving a pass to the FBI that key FBI initials officials involved in opening up this case, they get a memo from Harry Reid and August, the Democrats Senate the Senate leader at the time in August of twenty sixteen. They get a memo from him saying, hey, you guys better open up an investigation into Trump. He's colluding with the Russians look at this information. I have the information, ladies and gentlemen, is in the dossier. Who does he get it from? It's clear as they gets it from John Brennan who briefs Harry Reid right before he sends the memo in August. Okay. Copy Brennan gives you the information from steel to read who sends it to the FBI. The FBI is already getting information from Steele. Let's be clear on this. This is important. This is the setup to this. How do we know that because an FBI agent by Agadir Mike gator meets with steel in London in July, which is before August when Brennan briefs Harry Reid and the gang of eight on the steel information. You are we good? Yeah. We're it's important. Okay. We're good steals. Giving information to the FBI and the media and the summer June July twenty sixteen he then somehow gets it to Brennan to steal Brennan gives it to read read writes, the information in a memo he sends to Jim me and says we need you to investigate Trump because of this. It's the steal information. I had said to you on Friday show that I believe though, key people in the FBI notably Lisa page testifies under oath didn't understand that the information. They were getting from Harry Reid through John Brennan had come from steel. I sorry. I don't want to over abuse analogies. But it's important to understand. We're talking about here. You know, if one guy, you deem, kind of shady and not credible. You know, tells you that it's going to rain tomorrow and his accuracy in predicting rain events is what you're going to be like whatever I don't need an umbrella. He tells me it's gonna rain every day. But if another guy comes to your house in Occidental goes, hey, I'm sure it's gonna rain tomorrow. And you don't know him. But he seems sincere about it. You're going to bring an umbrella. But what if the second guy who seems sincere got the information from the first guy you don't trust? It's the same bad for mation. Right. The point here and the analogy is the FBI and Lisa page. They work confused. She's the lead lawyers having an affair with the lead investigative agent. They stay thought they were getting information confirming it's gonna rain tomorrow when it was from the same shady guy Steele who had given it to Brennan good way to put down. I'll get to that you second. Thank you. Yeah. That's going to set up this whole story here. So take a few minutes, then we'll get onto some other stuff. I don't want to abuse stuff. But remember this title is section as you guys verified this, right? Okay. I here's tray gouty last night on Sean Hannity show who drops a new on this thing with this statement last night, and he's talking about hey, you really want to get to the bottom of this. You want to look at this Pacific set of interactions in December of twenty sixteen. Remember the date and remember the players he's talking about are you convinced that there was a fraud committed against the FIS a court withholding that Hillary paying for that dossier. And that in fact, the bulk of evidence was unveiled. A fireable. And that they never verified whether anything steel road is true. And they do it to spy on the Trump campaign, sir. Showing Aachen tell you what is even worse than what you described. It is what you described in addition to the withholding of his skull Petoskey information, which is what has Johnny Ratcliffe, so exercised, and they made no effort to corroborate the dossier until after it had been used in the application and a renewal no effort is not that they failed. They made no effort to last question. So whoever's investigating this telephone to look for emails between Brennan and Komi in December of twenty six to you. Ooh. Aw. Wait what? County is a county. He's very you may say out he's he is. He's actually very reserved these he's not the cavalier renegade. Everybody thinks he is. I don't mean as an insult. I mean, he's just very delivery. He's a lawyer and he talks like a lawyer on TV. And again, I don't mean that as an insult he thinks like a prosecutor matter of fact, I had it significant beef with gowdy awhile ago for saying at one point that the FBI had done things by the numbers that wasn't exactly from what I heard later saying second what I thought he said, but whatever that's a whole other point so gouty just launches this bomb that apparently there's a series of emails him and others have seen between Jim Komi and John Brennan in December of twenty sixteen. Why is this key, ladies and gentlemen? Because the Pfizer. The first FIS is in October of two thousand sixteen. The first renewal of the Pfizer the process is remember, there's three months. October November December. So they renew it again in January the process starts in December. And apparently there's a series of emails between the two that seemed to be very bad ugly. Devastating troubling. What do you think they could be talking about? Do you think maybe the thing I've been telling you for a year and a half? That Komi and his FBI people had an inkling that the information. They were getting from Steele was bogus. And they just hated Trump so much they bypassed their own professionalism and verification project process and rushed the FIS it through the court. And then at the first renewal they start to figure out show that maybe this information isn't what we thought it was mosaics looking screwy. Yeah. His phone made the corpus that those articulate facts that are just not working out when I see remembers very well. Now, why those December emails important because here's what I think's going on. Let me just explain it to you Komi figures out in December when they're getting ready to renew the Pfizer. They've already sworn to court. This stuff is true wasn't Komi figures out that the information they got from Harry Reid probably came from Brennan, which came from steel and does not corroborate the information they have because it came from steel too. Can't corroborate his own stuff. Other people outside sources would have to verify steal stuff. That's not how any of this works so Kobe's. Probably emailing. Brennan San heads the title of the section. You guys verified? This information. You said, right. Now. Now, does it this listen to this clip? Now, I've played this this this is up there with the Evelyn Farkas clip for probably the number of the top number at times, we've played it. Cut on the show. Here is John Brennan with Chuck Todd emphasizing a specific date. He claims he I saw that cashier is he says overly pretentious voices play that cut. When did you first learn of the so-called, Steele dossier, and what Christopher Steele was doing? Well, it was a very well kept secret among press circles for several months before it came out, and it was in late summer of two thousand sixteen when there was some individuals from the various US news outlets who asked me about my priority with it. And I had heard snippets about it. I did not know what was in there. I did not see it until later in that year. He was in December. Oh, oh, December. Oh, wow. The same time. There's this Email exchange would call me and Brennan. Yeah. You guys verified this information right notice. What Brennan says there are two takeaways from there. Don't forget the Brennan's as a liar. This guy is a disgrace to the country a disgrace, the human of total nothing. He says there is true in the sense that he's trying to get to the bottom of the story point number one. He says well, the dossier wasn't a secret was floating around in the media in the summer of two thousand sixteen. Why does he say that Joe Brennan is listening? He's not dumb. He's a liar. He's malicious this is malignant character in our national discourse. But he's not stupid. He says that because as gowdy and Lindsey Graham of pointed out in the interviews I discussed yesterday and endowed. He's interview last time. I don't have time to get to all that they make very specific point. And gowdy says it and that thing in that clip. We just played you can rewind it. Listen, again, the FBI made no effort whatsoever to verify Christopher steals information because they hated Trump so much they took it at face value Graham says in that clip we paid yesterday that the only thing the FBI did to verify Joe with the dreaded air quotes is they read media reports. Media reports where did those media reports come from? Christopher steele. Do you understand? It's the same guy telling people to go to your house and telling you it's going to rain tomorrow because he sells umbrellas hits the same guy. It's the same guy umbrella ten people should of my say, it's gonna rain there. Opium sent to your house by the umbrella guy. Brennan. Breaded can't put the information from steel out. It's garbage. He knows it's garbage. So he probably tells them. Hey, get this stuff to the media. Then Brennan uses the media reports to go to Harry Reid, and others and say, look, this is serious information immediate reporting on it. I've got confirmation to from Christopher Steele. It's the same stuff. So what is Brennan doing that interview point number one? He he highlights the fact that the media was reporting on it because he's going to throw Komi and the FBI under the bus back on it back on it. He's going to say, hey, man. It was raw we saw it in the media and looked the FBI shamefully didn't do their homework and use these media reports get ready ready. He is going to throw the FBI and the bus. Hey, I'm just an Intel guy, man. I saw some media reports. I don't know where they came from. I gave it to the FBI. Look the FBI in the FIS. It clearly says they verified everything using media reports on oh, that's their problem. They're the investigators. You may be thinking yourself. Well, that sounds logical right. Except for the fact that Devin newness when you imply that when you apply the newness translator has said often. That there were no official channels used for the intelligence. In other words, the information Brennan's getting himself that he claims is raw there's a process for raw unfiltered intelligence, you run it up the chain of the CIA through analysts. So that by the time it gets to the top the decision makers, the president Brennan, the deputy director of the Intel community, you know, it's true Brennan, did none of that Brennan handled. This thing himself with a small group of people at the top to make sure it wasn't vetted because he probably knew it was B S. Do you get it? He's about to throw the FBI under the bus, Corpus Christi. He's the corpus guy. He's the corpus of intelligence. He's the corpus guy. So point number one. He's gonna throw them under the bus and going out, my fault, the FBI screwed it up and use media reports. Secondly, he's going to stick to a story that he didn't see the dossier until December. He may be right. As I said last week. Maybe like now, you're really confused me don't conflict the paper dossier, which feels information, right? Sorry my nose. It. Just remember what I started the show with today. The fact that the dossier story does not marry up with Christopher Steele told the State Department woman. He tells the State Department women cavalier on October eleventh Cohen went to proc a dossier. He allegedly wrote eight days later says, oh, we don't know where the meeting happened, ladies and gentlemen, I don't think steel wrote the dossier. He may have written portions of it. But it's highly likely that other people. Simpson. Glenn simpson. Fusion GPS. Nelly or and others may have had input into the dossier. What am I going with this? This gives Brennan and out Brennan's talking to still ton the umbrella salesman. Okie Doke the dossiers written by other people under steals name. So Brennan could say, well, I didn't see that paper dossier until the center, I told you someone needs to ask Brennan this question under oath, forget the dossier for a minute, John. When was the first time, you came across the steal information about Carter page that appeared in the FIS. That's the question to pin them down on. Gotcha. Gotcha. I will guarantee you that E mail exchange in December with Komi and Brennan describes exactly what I'm telling you Brennan lying to call me saying, I don't know anything about this information. Jim, I don't know anything about it. I didn't see this until December until you told me about it when he you get it. Colmey emails county saying look at comas emails to Brennan they're suspicious. It's probably comb emailing Brennan. Hey, john. You guys verified this info. Right. It's probably Brennan emailing back saying, I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't see the the dossier until December. Now, God forbid comb emails back. Well, did you talk to or someone? Well, yeah, I talked to steal. And Jim we got a problem. Excuse me, John. We got a problem. We thought the information you guys pitch to us was from a different source and was therefore corroborating steal. We didn't know it was the same information. Now to show you the lengths that Brennan's gonna go to to hide where he got his information from play this cut, again, this is an older cut of Brennan answering trae counties question was trae gatty was still in congress. When gouty tries to pin them down. When exactly he got this information check this out I encountered and I'm aware of information intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and US persons involved in the Trump campaign that. I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals, and it raised questions in my mind, again, whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals, I don't know whether or not such collusion, and that's your term such collusion existed. I don't know. But I know that there was a sufficient basis of information and intelligence that required further investigation by the bureau to determine whether or not US persons were actively conspiring colluding with Russian officials, do, you know, the basis of that information that you sure whether bureau what what was the nature of the oven. I think Mr. gowdy the committee has now been provided information that relates to that issue in terms of information that the agency shared with the bureau, and that is something that is appropriately classified notice in that. Cut again Brennan's deception his effort to hide where he got the from what does he site? He cites while the information's classified. This is fascinating. Joe? I can't tell you because it's classified can you? Tell us could be going to classified setting you. Tell us Brennan will do anything anything to hide we got this information from. Because he misled people into believing the information he was getting was separate. You may say come on, Dan. How do you know that let's put up the Washington Times piece? Listen, Bob Woodard, who is absolutely no fan of the present. Here's a piece by Rohan Scarborough written September eleventh twenty eighteen title, then CIA director John Brennan, endorsed Trump dossier. Bob Woodward, said issue make Holden boarded Woodward. Bob Woodward is no friend that Donald Trump in his book fear. He writes this. This is fascinating stuff. Then CIA director John Brennan endorsed the Christopher Steele dossier when he acquired a copy in December of two thousand sixteen listen to this saying it matched the Russia collusion charges from his sources, according to Bob Woodward. He's a gentleman. It's the same source deal. Or it's not the same source Simpson writes the dossier and Nellie your and the F B. I wanted to court and lied and said that steel wrote it because he was there verified source they'd use before. You understand how no scenario works out for them. None. There is no avenue of escape. Trying to be a little calmer today. It was very excited yesterday and my sincere apologies for custody. I mean at I try not to do causes everybody around here a lot of headaches for a number of reasons, and it's just morally not right? But as very upset I'm trying to stay a little calmer today. So was so miffed yesterday, but do you understand on neither avenue works out for them? There were only two stories going forward. Now that are plausible. Steel is the source of information and steal wrote the dossier and steal can't remember his own story because in the dossier. He doesn't even remember coming in Prague. Even though he said pro Cohen, prog eight days early that story number one. It's the source of all of this. And Brennan is wrong. Because Brennan's saying in the Washington Times that the dossier confirms his sources, how does it confirm? If it's the same. You get what I'm saying if the dossier was written by steal, it doesn't confirm your sort. It's just the same information. It's like saying my name is, Dan. My name is Dan confirmed. I said my name is Dan twice. What if I said? My name was Andrew my name is it's not it doesn't matter. If I say twenty times. Or story number two where Brennan's not lying and Brennan says, hey, the dossier confirmed the story I heard from my source his sources, obviously steel. And yet the dossier was written by others. And in that case, the F B I wanted to court in front of a fighter jet said Christopher Steele. Gave us information put up the right hand. And they are in fact my. Now, I want to end the segment on with this one thing if you could put up that Lisa page testimony. That's redacted. What if I told you under those reductions was likely some very suspicious information? Well, here's Lisa page is Lisa page. So you know, what? This is Lisa page FBI lawyer working on this Trump case being questioned by fantastic. Congressman Mark meadows from North Carolina's a while ago. She's under oath and Brennan is asking her if she's aware that John Brennan at the CIA had the same information from Steele. The FBI apparently thinks is from a different source in his corroborating their information from Steele. So there's a lot of reductions in it, but miss page says well, yes, sir, because with all due honesty, if director Brennan, so we got that information, and it's all redacted. Meadows. Then says, well, we know the remote people sources paid says I do know that I know the information ultimately found its way to a lot of different places certainly in October of two thousand sixteen. Wow. You mean when still spoke to Catholic and told them about Coen, prog until you guys he didn't know is that what you're talking about. She goes on. But if the CIA as early as August, in fact, had those same reports, I'm not aware of that. And it's redacted what if I told you under-, those reductions say it said something like, well, if they provided them to us that would be really unusual. In other words, if the CI provided us information from steel and claimed it was verified intelligence that would be very unusual. You think they may be redacting? The fact that the FBI fell for the scam. Willingly that they were fed intelligence from Brennan thinking, it was verified up the chain CIA information when it was a fact Brennan gossiping about Christopher Steele. What a scam. All right. I got a lot more to get to. All right. Today's show brought to you by buddies at blankets. Listen, I love blankets. There's a list of books. I wanna read his endless people Email me books.

I have a lot of respect for everybody out there who has alternate theories on what's going on. But spy gate Russia gate. I get it. But there's a lot of vitriol, and it's unnecessary out there. I'm not going to attack you all. And I would appreciate if you don't attack people who believe as I do back. But there's a crowd of people out there who still insist that Christopher Wray head of the F B is a solid guy. He's getting on the bottom of all this. And that Rosenstein was great. And all these people were great. And there's like a plan. Sessions was awesome. Listen, I find I get it. I have a lot of respect for the work. You're doing. I'm just saying the evidence is mounting that that theory is not in fact. Correct. I mean, I explained to you the reductions yesterday, I just showed you at the beginning of the show that odd redaction about a travel thing using the immigration naturalization act. For information that wasn't redacted even a couple years ago in two thousand sixteen I'm sorry. I just don't buy the theory that this Christopher Ray is cleaning house, I'm sorry based on evidence his hesitancy to use the word spine on always that's part of the plan to you can't have it both ways some of the same people telling me, raise such a great guy. We're celebrating Bill bar the attorney general for finally talking about the word spying. And then they're ripping me when I call out Ray for running away for no, no, that's the point. What is it? Is it part of the plan to out to spying or not right? I don't get it. So we got knocked people. I listen to your stuff. I read it. I'm gonna put it's just I'd appreciate it. If you'd cut us some due deference to that the evidence is mounting that you're just not correct. Rosenstein was great really he signed the fourth FIS on the fourth. Fis awareness spy on the Trump team. Please explain to me how Rosenstein some hero here. I don't get it. Well, he appointed Muller Muller hated Trump. He fired Komi. Yeah. And he instantly regretted. I don't get it. I'm sorry. But I'm sorry. I didn't get off on a tangent there. All right. Big news yesterday. They have finally Bill Barr appointed US attorney from Connecticut. John dorm. You see the story of put bungee dot com in the show notes today. Please go to the show notes. Ladies and gentlemen. If you go to my website, Bongino dot com, you click on the menu. You'll see the dropdown menu any podcast all these stories are there. I really appreciate. If you read them so Bill bars appointed a US attorney for Connecticut, John dorm to investigate the origins of the Trump case, ladies and gentlemen, as I have insisted from the beginning. The three letter agency people are in a world of trouble. They are going to be I think prosecuted some of them for criminal leaks. Some of them are going to be administratively sanctions. Some of them may be fired some of them who already fired will have their reputations tarred permanently. When what comes out, and again, we talked about Komi and Brennan what they actually did. Now, why does this matter because remember, ladies and gentlemen, only? Prosecutors US attorneys have subpoena power investigators do not investigator Michael Horowitz, who's the inspector general looking into a lot of this Pfizer abuse process. He doesn't have subpoena power. He doesn't he can't empanel a grand jury. Right. A US attorney can so Horowitz has a lot of power. Don't get it. Go get me wrong. I mean, he could go to people administratively who still work there and say, hey, you need to you need to speak up about what's happening, but he doesn't have the power to subpoena. People Doerum now has that power. So we now have a US attorney Michael shouldn't be Jon Huber. I knew a guy they might Yuba once Jon Huber looking into it. We also have Durham looking into it. I just want you to put a little smile on your face. I know the pace of Justice has been glacial. I get it. And I'm expecting you to be happy about any of this. I just want you to be a little less sad about the destruction of our Republic today knowing that there are people out there. And if there were crimes committed absolutely sure Durham's gonna find him Bill bars not messing around. Okay. In a couple of other quick stories. I want to get through to Rubio yesterday. Marco Rubio who we've had significant disagreements within the past. But Rubio did some great again upon dot com. He's calling for a department of Justice investigation at that, John carryovers Iran context. Listen, John Kerry is bordering on a very serious criminal behavior. I mean that John Kerry, according to the president has been back-channelling with Iran backchannel, some some people would call that. No, no. It's only collusion when it's Republicans. He's actually back-channeling a communication shell carries a private citizen. He has no government affiliation role anymore. Talking with the Iranians the death to America crowd, telling them not to talk to Donald Trump. So he's cavorting and colluding with an enemy the United States, the world's largest sponsor of terror. That's your John Kerry. I mean, this is potentially criminal behavior. This guys didn't get there's no question. It's anti-american. No question that what carries doing his anti-american? None at all among same people. Not the liberal media who worships Democrats, John Kerry, I'm not expecting them to get to the truth. But Rubio's call it as it is if Michael Flynn, Lieutenant General, Michael Flynn, Sally Yates, the department of Justice suggested when he was the national security adviser that has called a Kislyak when he was the incoming national security advisor the Russian ambassador call if that was a potential violation of the Logan act. How? How is a private citizen? John Kerry, calling the death to America crowd telling him to SCR over the United States. How is that not a violation of the Logan act? And just case you're unclear what the Logan act is it prohibits private citizens from conducting diplomatic business of the United States. Now. The Logan acts a joke. It would never plas constitutional muster. But ladies and gentlemen, it's time to play hard ball. Now. Let's put the kitty toys in the whistle balls away. And let's get the rock out. Let's get a hard ball not softball the hard ball. And let's start playing a big boy games right now if the department of Justice under Sally Yates dot the Logan act was for real then the Logan acts for real. Potanin? You said it's Joe it is a joke. It's not a serious crime. It's never been successfully prosecuted history the United States, but if it's only a crime for Republicans and Republican appointees like Flynn than we live with not blind Justice. But just this like this one I closed one eye. Open Justice only sees apparently Democrats Justice doesn't see Republicans you want to prosecute to Logan send it to court. Let's get Jonah Keri in handcuffs and see how the Democrats feel about the Logan act. All of a sudden. New rules, folks, we win you lose. It's on the box. It's on abuse of power. It's an actual law. The Democrats thought it was real and they prosecuted, Mike Flynn, so good. For rubio. Let's test it out in court, right? Joe? Let's see if the Democrats theory about the veracity, the Logan act is true, go bay. Let's get John Kerry and cuffs. Let's get them in court. Let's see what he has to say about talking to the mullah's and the death to America crowd telling them to screw us over. Unreal. Really is it's so disappointing. All right. I had an economic story. You know, what let's do this because I'm gonna motor through. I've got a couple of the things I want to get to including that. I've I can't I want I brushed through that Papa D thing yesterday. I had a quick angle on the thing. I want to be sure you guys all get finally today. Our show brought to you by a good buddies at my patriot supply. Hey, there are some headlines out there. The mainstream media is ignoring California's big three utilities remind the public of plans to cut power during fire, bad weather. Gosh. What would you do for food? No power. No, grocery shells. No refrigeration big trouble experts assessed damage, if the first cyberattack in the US, Chris he's a real stories North Korea conducts another missile test, ladies and gentlemen, you have to be prepared you ensure everything in your lives matter you ensure your health you ensure your teeth you ensure your house you ensure your car how can you not ensure your food supply? It makes no sense. He's your stories weren't hearing about much, but we should be paying attention. If the power went out for weeks credit cards would work, you know, running out of cash, what are you going to do to get food? You're going to barter we're going to go to a barter economy. The answer is you should have the food. In your house would have friends at my patriot supply. Unprepared. Boxes of the stuff. I use.

It's already too late to prepare do it. Now, get emergency food from my patriot supply prepare with Dan dot com. That's prepare with Dan dot com. Prepare with Dan dot com. Check it out today. Okay. I wanted to cover this story yesterday. This is just another one of those debunking liberal nonsense stories because almost nothing liberals tell you is true ever, you know, liberals will tell you of voter suppression happened in Georgia and the election. That's why Stacey Abrams should have been a governor. And then you tell them that the law that she's referencing was passed by Democrats in the one thousand nine hundred there like your says, this is what they do all the. So before the tea right tarantula just about every because they don't have an actual argument. So what liberals tell us Joe, but the tax cuts tax cuts. They're going to drive the deficit. The Trump tax cuts are going to drive the deficit. They're going to cost the government money Miki, my tax cuts, so cost the government anything tax tax money comes from you as we say, it's like you get a tax cut. It's like a thief decides not to rob someone and you're claiming the thief was quite it costs money. What do you mean it cost in money? You didn't rob me? What are you kidding, folks? The tax cuts historically have not cost the government revenue. There is no evidence of this at all the Calvin Coolidge tax cuts. Yes, we're going back that far to show you that historically overtime when taxes get cut people have more money in their wallet. Which they spend it businesses which grow their businesses, which employ more people who pay more taxes, and that suggested may pay for themselves. I'm simply suggesting to correlation between tax cuts and government revenue going up not. Not down is strong. You call that whatever you want paid for. I don't care. I'm just telling you what the evidence says Calvin Coolidge tax cuts, the John F Kennedy tax cuts the Reagan tax cuts. George W Bush tax cuts all of these tax cuts were followed up by an immediate gusher of revenue into the federal government more. So what would we told after the Trump tax cuts? The same stupid Canard was rolled out again, by Democrats who don't know what they're talking about. It's gonna cost the government money while did that happen. Well, thanks to the good. Congressman rod Blum rods. A good guy Rodman following the story. He put up this tweet the other day again. This is not news to anyone listening to this show. But to some liberals who may have mistakenly tuned in this is news to them at rep. Rod Blum B L, go check him out on Twitter verified account from the AP report today and the federal budget to takeaways number one the reason for the increased deficit is increased spending not decay. Creased revenues. How is that possible? Joe? We were told the tax cuts we're going to cost the government money. Yeah. Take away number two. Revenues have an all caps increase to the government. I was correct. When I said, the tax cuts won't cost the government costs in court, and he has the little people you go to here you go. Make it a remotely making a return, and he has a little snippet from the piece at the bottom, which says so far this year latest, this is from AP the Associated Press, which usually act as propagandists for the Democrats from AP so far this year receipts tax receipts are up one point eight percent to two trillion while spending is up seven point six percent to two point five seven trillion. Wall Street Journal covered this story as well. I might cost, ladies and gentlemen. I can't believe I've got a discussed this stuff. Put liberals will lie to you. So fluidly effortlessly if you didn't have this show. You would believe they were telling the truth Wall Street Journal yesterday tax revenue keeps rising the federal deficit is increasing and the reason is spending. Listen, the journals a right leaning outlet. But they're not conservatives. They are at best moderate Republicans. Why would they lie? Tax revenue is up almost two percent. It's not down. It is not down taxes were cut. You wanna know the reason the tax revenue some of you may still have a difficult time processing this. Talking about the conservative you guys get this. And don't mean as an insult and everybody has time to study marginal tax rates and revenue functions. And how they work. When you cut taxes people put more money in their wallets. Okay. That's seemingly taught a logical to most. Thank you, the money doesn't get burned. They don't go throw it in a fireplace the money circulates and get spent in businesses that then make more money we've seen corporate profits. Go up we've seen GDP growth. Go up. Those companies then pay more corporate taxes on bigger profits. And then hire more workers to keep up with the increased demand workers, which pay income taxes which far offset the lost amount from the lower corporate tax and the personal income tax cuts folks, it's not hard to figure out. No. But I'll be can't that it is very frustrating to constantly have to talk about because it seems so basic that people who are just willing to follow simple data. Tax cuts cost the government money. Have they ever cost the government money? No, okay. Then why are you saying that because it's a good talking point? That's why. Also, CNS news story a have up in the show notes today by Terence Jeffrey who does a lot of work on this stuff. Federal spending sets a record through April. Folks. I don't care who's an office the government spending out of control, but the evidence that the deficit right now when our debt is being driven by government spending. Not tax cuts is right in front of your face. It's not complicated. Tax revenue is up and spending his up more. Your Jamaica, micro economic analogy Joel mccower says making more money, but he's spending more money than he ever did outpacing his raise not hard to figure out. I I. Okay. Quick video here that the look I don't do a lot of funny stuff on the show but hat tip to Mr. producer from the marklevinshow richer bet. This is really funny. Oh, yeah. It's to be the most awkward hug of all time. So AO see and Bernie Sanders route with this ridiculous Bill to cap interest rates, which is so economically. Silly. Maybe maybe I'll explain that in a second to but watch this. I'm gonna take a note Price Scout price controls never work. But, you know, of course, liberals facts, don't really mesh. But watch these two hog at the end of this proposal, a cap interest rate is the awkward thing I've ever sailed describe it to the list. All right. Glad you. Bye. So birdie touches on on the left elbow. She grabs him back on the shoulder. He's like unsure like with the Joe Biden stuff to hugger. She then seems to be like, well, I don't know is he unsure I'm unsure he's unsure. And they like it's just the most uncomfortable hug I have ever seen in my life that Mr. producer to Mark Levin show. Just a quick note. I wasn't gonna silly proposal to cap interest rates. They're putting out a plan. Hey, credit cards shouldn't be able to charge people more than fifteen percent. Oh, there you go. Nice. Do we have a story? But the Wall Street Journal, Bernie and AO see our credit risk. They would cap interest rates at fifteen percent while letting the post office, right loans. That's a great idea worked at folks, this is a price control, plain and simple. It is an effort. What is what is the interest rate? It is a price for money, right? If I needed loan from the Bank that loan has a price to me that price is the interest rate. If it costs me six percent, that's the price of capital. I think percent to get my hands on some money. Now, a price control or controlling the price of money. We'll do what price controls do everywhere. They're tried everywhere. There is no instance of price controls in human history where these things haven't happened. The first thing you get is increased demand for the product. Well, why? Well, if my if I haven't paid alone off Joe in fifty years and my risk for a credit card is probably closer to twenty five or thirty percent interest because I never pay any money back, and then I can get a loan from the credit card. A fifteen percent then everybody in their mother's gonna wanna loan because it's below the price said easier because sometimes the price of money rather than tangible goods confuses people if Bernie Sanders and put a price control on corvettes and said, you can't short more than thirty thousand dollars for a corvette everybody in her mother's gonna wanna go by corvette. Because they know the corvettes were seventy to eighty thousand can get it for thirty right? Make sense increase. The man what comes next in the price controls. Every single instance humanistic decreased supply of the corvette analogy, the corvettes population of the United States going to try up really quick because people are going to run to the dealer to get a seventy thousand dollars corvette for thirty thousand dollars. So why does decrease supply happen because the Chevy dealer is not going to continue to sell the corvettes at a loss. He bought the car from Chevy for fifties. Got to sell it to you now because of the government for thirty. What do you think he's gonna do by more is not gonna be any more corvettes left in the instance of the credit card price control? What's going to happen? People who are high risk Joe are just not going to get credit. You know, who you're going to have to go to you're going to have to go to the loan shark from rocky. Remember rocky one he works for told a break. Your remember Rockies enforcer, your I forget, the guy's name the loan shark. We'll get it down. And he was named Tony or something whatever he's the loan shark in a neighbor. He charges ninety percent or whatever and rocky breaks your thumbs. If you don't pay him back, so good job AFC Tonita loan shark in rocky too dumb break or a back because of you. Finally, you get black markets, which is what a loan shark is. It's an unofficial money lending thing, which you'll have you'll have the shark and you get quality problems. Why? Because if you have to sell a corvette thirty thousand dollars, and it's really worth seventy you're going to build the crappiest corvette known to man because you're losing money. You're not going to put any work into it. And either as the credit cards going to put any money into customer service because they don't care. They can't charge. You what you what your risk is worth silly stuff? Silly. But this is what I in Bernie do silly nonsensical. Ridiculous absurd stuff. It's just it's so easy to bunk. You don't even have to do a lot of homework. It's like, it's not even econ one. Oh, one it's like econ zero zero zero one like my daughter in first grade can figure this stuff out seriously. She's smart enough that these two aren't apparently put that Hogwarts awkward wasn't it. Oh my gosh. She didn't even wait for the cat. Oh my God. He's like we win. What it so funny? All right. This China's story I wanted to hit this because these were all supposed to cover yesterday. But man, we really got into that that story. So here's what's going on with China. I am a free. Trader I've always been. I know it causes a lot of controversy on the show. But listen, I'm here to tell you the truth. And you don't always have to agree as I E mail the gentleman this morning that you my show is not for everybody. And that's okay. But I'm here to be honest with you, and I'm not gonna just fall in line with the political talking points that they I never agreed with tariffs. The problem is terrorists which your taxes at our border. Let's not make any mistake about what they are. I don't know what else to do when I don't think Trump does either right now to get the Chinese to engage in free trade what they're doing. Now is not free trade. It's costing us a fortune. Now, there are a number of problems beyond the scope of this show. Maybe I'll do a show on China when they specifically, but they have very shady government procurement methods other where their government by stuff subject to rules that that other foreign companies aren't restricted to obviously the way they're engaging in a surveillance state activities is troubling. But what's most troubling to me is the fact that in order to do joint projects in China and their economy American companies going over there have to forfeit, their intellectual capital, the Chinese say, okay, apple whatever, you wanna come over and engage in in the Chinese market. You have to give us your sensitive technology. Ladies gentlemen, that's not free trade. It's not free. It's not free to American companies left their most valuable thing folks of ransom. This is my iphone, right? What was that? What was blinking? On there. What what that was really? Yeah. That's funny. It's not on my actual screen. It's something blinking. That's hysterical. Yeah. Yeah. As a reflection. Best my iphone would a picture my family on it right there. The valuable part of this iphone is not the plastic or the glass, frankly, it's not even the chip tons of phones smartphones or not even like commodities now what's valuable about the iphone is their apps, the intellectual property it went behind it there. I o s operating system and the people who developed it. This is what's valuable if you have to forfeit that how your product works? Not what your product is physically. That's not the value. How it works is the value. And how it works was created in someone's head. If you have to forfeit that we're not gonna have an economy. Again, I'm not a supporter of terrorist. But in this case, I think the president is correct. There is no other way to get China to come to the table say we will stop stealing your stuff other than to say. Well, then we're going to price your stuff. Now that Tara stories yesterday's literally yesterday's news came out yesterday and on Friday, right? What's the problem? China's going to have now. If they want to fight a war of attrition on trade. Make no mistake. It is going to impact our economy. It is. That's not pretend it one. But the impact to the Chinese economy is going to be catastrophic because now we have two problems. Well, I shouldn't say the Chinese have two problems problem. Number one is they export to us a whole lot more than we send over to them. And what they export as a percentage of their economy is enormous really what we buy from China is a small sliver of our overall economy. It's not an insignificant. One don't mistake. What I'm saying? But it is not enough to crash our economy, but what we buy from them if we can slow that down. Is enough to crash their economy. Secondly, Joe put up this invested pedia story. The Chinese have responded by doing something interesting. This is a story from from a updated in the nineteen. They have been IMP they've been recently devaluing their currency again. This is important right before a lot of these tariffs. Now, why does devaluing their currency matter? Devaluing their currency just decimates and destroys their population. Devaluing their currency makes their products cheaper. Now. I don't want it. I don't want to hit you and hammer you to death with a bunch of useless facts and tidbits, but this is critical. Taxes at the border, the United States what we call tariffs on Chinese goods make those products there's Chinese goods more expensive. Simple as that if a Chinese good coming into the United States cost one hundred US dollars, and we put a twenty five percent tax it now cost one hundred twenty five dollars, bingo, which makes people more likely to buy another product that's one hundred dollars, right, right? If there's a Chinese widget American widget. They'll by the American widget for hundred the problem is with tariffs. A lot of American which widgets lend raise their price to one hundred twenty five dollars because they know the Chinese products under twenty five dollars to what the Chinese are doing is they're making their currency less valuable to make those exports to the United States cheaper despite the tariffs. Right. You may say, wow. Well, that's a win for China. We impose a twenty five percent tariff. But now that hundred dollar widget is now only seventy five dollars coming in. So the festively it's the same price. It was before. Is that makes sense? Joe it offsets your terror terrorists. Make the price. Go up devaluing your currency makes the price go down. Yeah. You may say to yourself. Wow. That's a win win for China. No, no. No. It's not, ladies and gentlemen. Because it makes Chinese workers work a whole lot harder to produce products for us at less money than they were compensated for them before remember, they were selling the same widget before the tariffs for one hundred dollars if they devalue their currency, it's the same widget nothing happens to the widget just the paper behind it's worthless. So now, the same widget they work their butts off to produce is now being sold for seventy five dollars to compensate for the tariff, which means their wages, go down in China and their workers have to work harder to give us the same amount of stuff. What I'm telling you. Ladies and gentlemen, is the Chinese have no way out here. They either can stop stealing our stuff go to zero tariffs on our goods as we reciprocate. And if we're finally back to free trade or they can watch their economy suffer, and they can watch their people their own people work twice as hard to produce. For us. The same amount of stuff we bought in the past either way we win. They are in a world of trouble and the Chinese. It. You know, what tomorrow I want to? I'm going to get to this today. But I want to get to a New York Times story tomorrow about what was left out of the mullahs report. There's a key part of that. So I get to my one sentence. Even the New York Times starting knowledge what when a disgrace it was. But just to end the show. I said I'd hit this with the PC thing the PC arrest the popadopoulos at Dulles airport. I can't listen to yesterday's show at the end, I can't have precise enough. How unusual this is the fact that they arrested Muller's team a key figure what they thought George popadopoulos this whole Russian collusion thing. Remember, he's told by allegedly Masud about the Russian Durham with a PC warn, meaning excuse me with probable cost not a warrant. They didn't show up with any warrant at all. That is highly unusual amongst federal agents not uncommon amongst border patrol FBI police police State Department police, but amongst eighteen eleven's the suit wearing federal agent crat. I cannot emphasize enough. How unusually probable cause arrest is it says to me again, if you listen to the show that they pass. Panicked about popadopoulos. And as I saw Maria Barreda Romo tweet this morning. I think everybody starting to get around to the fact that popadopoulos was set up with that ten thousand dollars coming back into the airport. They got him at the border because they knew they could search a warrant. He didn't have the money, and they panicked and they had to arrest them on probable cause. Because it warrant they thought they were going to swear out about this money charge in the United States didn't happen because popadopoulos didn't have the money. Very very important. We'll hear more about that soon. I'm sure of it. I got more for you. Coming up this week to work in some stuff shaking some trees. So have no fear, folks. Hey, thanks a lot for tune in.
