Is Trump abusing his power over the judiciary?
"This is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter before we go any further. I want to address today. Sentencing of a man Roger Stone Roger Stone. He's become the sentencing of Roger Stone. A LONGTIME CONFIDANTE DONALD TRUMP for lying to Congress obstruction and witness tampering was mired in controversy. Over how the. Us Justice Department handled the case under public pressure from the president. Mr Stone received a forty month sentence whereas prosecutors had recommended that he serve up to nine years. This followed seven cases of presidential clemency for White Collar criminals whose convictions included extortion fraud and lying to White House officials. Yes we have commuted. The sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail We have Birdie character we have Mike Milkin. Who's gone around and done an incredible job? Offer is the independence of America's judiciary under threat. Or as Mr Trump simply using the powers a lot to him on the line with me to discuss this is ed loose. Us National Editor and columnist and Cottam Schober US legal and enforcement correspondent. I let's hear a clip from president trump taken. Just a couple of days before stone sentencing. Just so you understand. I chose not to be involved. I'm allowed to be totally involved. I'm actually I guess the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved but he is a man of great integrity. But I would be. I could be involved if I wanted to be man of integrity he is referring to is the US Attorney General William Bar but is this credible given the tweets he published before the sentencing of Roger. Stone got tell us first about the case of Roger Stone which you've covered for the F. T. Who was he exactly? What was his crime? And was the sentence particularly lenient for this kind of case. Roger Stone is a flamboyant veteran political operative in the US. His career goes all the way back to working on Richard Nixon's election campaign and he has basically been the person you call as a Republican presidential candidate. When you want to get your hands dirty. He called himself a dirty trickster and he is an expert in this sort of Makir side politics in the two thousand sixteen election. He was a sort of informal adviser to Donald Trump. And one of the things he was trying to do was make contact with wikileaks. When it became known that wikileaks had a trove of hacked emails from the Democrats to use it for political gain. The thing that he was convicted of is in two thousand seventeen when Congress began investigating. What exactly went on to twenty sixteen election? The House Intelligence Committee called on Mr Stone and asked him about some of the comments he had made during the campaign and Mr Stone lied to. Congress about who is intermediary was or who he was referring to when he was talking about having an intermediary allied when. He said that he didn't have any documents or any written materials or any taxed of his conversations with that intermediary. The sentence he eventually received was actually probably pretty in line with what other sort of white collar criminals convicted of lying to. Congress or the government have received the key issue in his case was he had threatened a longtime friend of his who was also another witness. Basically saying don't contradict my story and those thrashed included threatening his dog for example the key issue at stake was whether he was serious about that and whether therefore has sent should be jacked up significantly because he had made violent threats and eventually the judge took the view that although it was serious that he'd made violent threats. The person that he had threatened didn't actually feel like they were going to experience violence. Ed Tell us a bit more about Mr Stone. And the history of his friendship with the President and whether you think Mr Trump's tweets constituted interference in the judicial process. Yeah as I said. He's a flamboyant dirty tricks. Who GOES WAY BACK TO LATE? Six hundred seventy trump maximum in the late seventies. He was introduced to try but he quickly hit it off. They shed philosophy of you know playing to win that no method is invalid. Never apologize never explain. Stone set up with couple of other people are very well known lobby group in Washington. One of his clients was trump who was seeking tax breaks a casino. He was setting up in Atlantic City. And really they've been great friends since then so the ties between trump and stone go along way that very deep and they're often allegedly nefarious in terms of the League outlook from this. I have no doubt that trump will seek to podcastone fast opportunity. Trump's on the Guy Senate acquittal spring cleaning of his administration ruthlessly seeking out anybody who isn't very very loyal so to get rid of weather that Meghan appointees the civil savage. Anybody perceive does slightly disloyal. Not Enough is being pledged. Loyalty is a hugely important hugely. Important thing to trump and stern has shown loyalty he has not. He is not divulged things that have damaged the president. He's showing toughness. He's been very Trumpian in how he's dealt with. Franchi's accused the judge me by of being a biased judge which she's rejected this very trumpian and I have no doubt that it will culminate in at some point. President trump pardoning Roger Stern question about what trump actually did part of the reason. Roger Stone was so controversial. Was that line prosecutors involved in this case we're uncomfortable with what Mr Trump and the justice department we're doing. Can you explain that to viewers and why it was such a problem so there are four prosecutors who secured Mrs Jones conviction trial so the trial team? They filed their sentencing recommendation which was seven to nine years which there's no bones about it. That's a serious sentence for anybody to serve and then that evening all of a sudden early hours of the morning so after midnight trump tweets calling it a miscarriage of justice. He says this is unacceptable and Lo and behold the very next day the DOJ which is the US Department of Justice DOJ officials. Start saying that they agree that the sense would be unwarranted and adair kind of reverse it. The following day afternoon we see all four the prosecutors quit the case including one of them actually quits his job at the DOJ entirely and subsequently a new sentencing recommendation is put forward. Which says we'RE NOT GONNA ask for a particular sentence but it ought to be far less than seven to nine years. The idea that four prosecutors would quit a case. All at once is astonishing and it was a very serious and important moment and DOJ his trip shook the DOJ. It was a very dramatic moment in Washington and the question then was was doj senior leadership. William bar the. Us Attorney General. Was He reacting to an order from trump or was something else going on now the lion that DOJ has stuck to is that there was a miscommunication between the US Attorney's office in Washington DC and between main justice headquarters also in DC? But they're separate offices. Basically Mr. Barr says he was not expecting to see a seventy nine year recommendation. The new prosecutor brought on sat at the sentencing that the prosecutors who filed a recommendation that you good faith and thought that they had been given approval to do so and so Mr Bar said listen. This is not about trump. This is about. I think that that sentence was appropriate and I was not told about what was going on. The important thing here is whether or not Mr trump explicitly ordered the attorney general chains recommendation. It's still gets to this question about how our friends of the president being treated in their cases now it's pretty common across the US for federal prosecutors to request tough even harsh sentences. That's not unknown. You don't often see the attorney general weighing in to ask for lighter sentences and certainly DOJ policy at the moment is to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law to secure the longer sentences possible so whether or not Mr Trump's tweets were an express order to Mr Bar that he followed a whether he was acting independently. It still gets to this question about if your friend of the president. How are you going to be treated by this? Doj while we're on the subject of Friends of the president. The other thing that happened last week was a series of presidential pardons for White Collar criminals specifically several that have connections to Mr Trump. I talk about Michael Milkin. What did he do and why does it matter that he was pardoned? Michael Milkin is to people on Wall Street a hero. He effectively invented the junk bond or high yield bond market in the eighties and then he was brought low by prosecutors and the SEC and eventually guilty to securities fraud and nine hundred ninety. He served about twenty two months in prison after being initially sentenced to ten years. Ever since then he's been rebuilding his reputation. He's a philanthropist. Now has the Milken Institute and for a long time people on Wall Street rich and powerful people have felt that he was prosecuted unjustly and deserved a pardon. The other person. Mr Trump pardon rod blagojevich is perhaps less of a popular figure in any area. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois and was prosecuted for trying to extort a children's Hospital for campaign contributions and also trying to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama when he became president his case involves some quite lurid wiretap quotes. Where he talked about Mr Obama's Tennessee. Being a very valuable thing with various explosives and that he wasn't going to give it away for nothing. The fact that these pardons came just a day or two before Roger. Stone's sentencing is pretty mistake -able signal of Mr Trump's power to grant clemency. Whatever case that he wants so prosecutors can go after his fans and associates. Jerry can commit crimes. Judge can sentence them to however long they want ultimately. Mr Trump has under the constitution the pardon power and that was a pretty stark exercise of that pardon power on the eve of a close friend of his being sentenced. Ed Do you think we're gonNA see more interventions this spy trump perhaps related to the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the election. People like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Who Manafort I think would definitely be a case for another pop and I would be very surprised if Michael Cohen Without Him. Because Michael Cohen Tablet Trump describes a rat in that inimitable. Kind of multi language that the president sometimes uses Michael. Cohen testified to Congress very damagingly against president. Trump's he's considered to be a tax cut. The thing that links you know all these Haden's whether it's Michael Milkin Rod Blagojevich Obama Carrick. Us police commissioner who was the security guard incidentally for Rudy Giuliani. The thing that links all of them is that they're pretty well connected people who've committed white-collar crimes and who have upbeat through Fox News. In some cases that Bregovic wife spoke on Fox News. He carrots by on Fox News to capture the president's attention and I think the pattern is again very trumpian thing. It's it's about. People who trump identifies with he feels as acute. Did he feels. He's fatty toxic at he. Identifies WITH OTHERS. Who fit that description again though. The role of connections and of mutual friends and a Fox as dishing platform for pardon. These are very common. There's a pattern here. How big a cause of concern is all this. I mean it's trump's use of the pardon power markedly different from other presidents will Clinton famously on his last day in office Rich Hedge Fund billionaire and friend of the Clintons Madonna to the Clintons and that caused a lot of bad blood. Clinton was heavily criticised for intervening on behalf of a friend and it stood out and I guess the reason I mentioned that is it. Was Fatty unusual. It's now completely normal. Trump has happened many many people who under the inventions of us? Pardon history wouldn't ready quantify so I think he has changed quite dramatically and just to add on. There's an interesting historical link year. Another controversial use of the pardon power in the past was George H W Bush who infamously pardoned a whole swath of former officials who are indicted in connection to the Iran Contra Scandal and bill bar the current. Us Attorney General was back then also attorney general and so Mr Bar He had pushed not just for one. Pardon of Caspar Weinberger. Who was the former Secretary of defense? He said listen. If you're gonNA pardon any of these people you have to pardon all of them. I think his quote was in for a penny in for a pound and so you may have the curious historical echo if MR trump loses later this year of his attorney general at the end of his time in office being the same attorney general at the end of George W Bush's time in office advising him on. You know who to pardon before he leaves Hamas all this been received in Washington and then around the US do people care. It's been received as many other actions by president trump being received with a high temperature reaction inside the Washington. Beltway and shrug outside the GNOMES that being trashed here in a row very significant look at the powers of the presidency. The procedures the the president uses before he acts and the conventions so that being shredded caused great angst in Washington. Dc across the political divide and almost badly registered a ripple outside of Washington. The same of course applies to impeachment. It really didn't resonate much isn't resonating match in the Democratic primaries. In places like Iowa New Hampshire and so I think this is far far lower. It may be it should be different than ideal while but it registered FAFA LOA on the vote says right of than than even impeachment.

Top UN official in Mauritania dispels misconceptions over slavery, womens rights
"Supporting Mauritania's efforts to protect eastern border from jihadists and other destabilizing elements is just one aspect of the work in this quiet corner of North Africa. That's according to U N Resident Coordinator for Mauritania Anthony or Hemming Amar who oversees the organization's operations nations to help the country realise sustainable development economic growth and other goals. Mr Obama was in New York recently and spoke to Dan. Penn about UN assistance in Mauritania. And the need to clear the air over negative reports about slavery and gender equality. Most people don't hear much about Morton. Yeah of course. It's quiet and sometimes when we hear about more tedious usually mostly negative slavery. Those kinds of things. There are some transformative initiatives going on in the country which needs to be understood and also supported. And does this way you went comes in and before we begin maybe you can tell us a resin coordinator Benita. What exactly is that? What do you do there well us? The title indicates We coordinate the UN or personnel support to the country and We D- reforms. We also I also secretary general so we do take on issues that we didn't take on board previously like some of the political issues but the main focus is to make sure that the UN programming response today as DVD's in pefect alarming to support the government's priorities. Thank you very much. And you've mentioned the SDG's the sustainable development goals what are some of the major ones that Mauritania is working on. Mauritania is a very big country about one million square kilometers. Four point four million people. It's straddles the senator Gary of Abass. In all the way to the Suhel to the desert in the north there are four men issues I think that President Tool Martinez Development. In which you entrust to support one of them's the the whole security issue Martinis the Western Frontier Molly. So the jihadism terrorism We do provide support to make sure that at least Martinez offset bulwark to what is happening. And also to be able to influence positively. What is happening on this border The second bit is the holes social sector support programs that we bring to bear education health. National reconciliation those kinds of things. And then to Ed category is the government support and four elementary economics Davidge vacation Growth and obviously is equal distribution for every Mauritanian to also benefit from economic growth. I usually also talk about environment back. It's in a way President and all the foyer is that I mentioned The economic base is on the environment agriculture extract to use those things but yes environment is also a very important aspect of the UN support you mentioned the UN helping Mauritania to sort of be a bulwark against any sort of. I guess she had a store extremist elements. I guess coming from Mali or other parts of the Suhel is the country impacted as it is now by any terrorist activities No the last in fact terrorist incident. A country country is more than ten years old but since then the government actually adopted some what I call strategic interventions to make sure that doesn't happen again one of them is a decentralisation program does the president speaks about it most of the time that you know countries in that part of Africa have to bring seven assist population and to make depletion feel like they belong they have access to the administration dot com. Talk to people so education. Walter those kinds of things. You know Decentralized government systems and that is working obviously also beefed up security. If you hope you have on your student board which is under CVS security threats than you have to do something so they've also restarted the army. Let me to be able to respond to this kind of threats. And the ad I emphasise million economic development Mauritania depends on agriculture pastoralism. MM So whatever that could be done to make sure that dip with have some economic gains and not to think about terrorism that sort of thing so so fights nights working and because there's also small country Very strong social relationships networks which I also helps the citing keeping together and now at the outset you mentioned you know when I said American you. It's a quiet place we don't hear too much about it and you've mentioned in the past. It was about negative things. Maybe we can talk about but some of those in the steps of the country has taken or is taking together with the support of the UN in overcoming and continuing that progress on Fox walks. Can I think Research I saw a good opportunity to Claire on Mauritania. I think Mauritania is to be topical. Last which is the sub-regional grouping it was forced to leave because it was the only country. Eddie have laws against slavery But some of them it has get laws against livery and it has tribe NAS which track kisses that comes to his attention and that sort of thing so slavery something which is supported by state or institutions is not the case but obviously in in some of the media it's slavery pervades. What really is the issue in the country moment is the sequester slavery and you could could be free? But if you're comical independent on the person who used to own you of your sleep yongle five and so on and so forth and and so the government does acknowledges that There are some of these issues and the present government basically costs four. Aw Proletariat is to make sure that some of these things transformed emphasis on the governance rule of law areas Emphasis on national reconciliation emphasis assists on economic growth that benefits everybody and then obviously emphasis on social aspects and they have a big program Kota the moon. The moon base. Kelly's associate transfer Francois Program which the president has taken on more and essentially enlarging it to make sure that that autonomy that to break the links between former slaves and your masters could actually become a reality that being said of your sleep when you have the big country like Martina. There are certain things which will be happening and I saluted corners of the country. I think the. US government does report on slavery and trafficking some of these issues and Martinez. Three BIS scully. meaning that there are a lot of things to do that. I think the government is governed side of that. And it's doing what it can to make sure that it's in the good books good neighborliness with Yadda companies have conform to international norms. critise and everything that it has signed onto of course he one of the important areas for the UN in particular for the secretary general is gender equality and how is the country Fairing in that respect Dr West to go I think generally in Africa and I would even say generally around the world agenda qualities issue So when you have on Islamic republic which also fuses out say courtrai traditions. What some of the normative things that are required because as part of your body that you win you're allowed that it takes a little more time together but that being said I think The government US keen on making sure that they're supposed division Mauritania's hard women Republic in the sixties and so the question becomes really continuing that trend and making sure that you have woman in in good positions women who come to role models and and also to work on transforming also. I would say some of the mindsets that people do not just accept what Khartoum tradition sees so month's Roland also to compete in solve the modern spaces. It's happening it's happening very slowly. You went suppose that at advocacy or programs. We tried to do that. Also intensify recruitments We try to do that. Intensify intentioned programs in terms of talking to young female outdoors at schools a To let them understand what is available in the world. There is no law in Mauritania which prescribes women from ascribing to be anything including being the president. So it's just a metro for encouraging open indoors and providing them the avenues that will allow them to see that it can seize opportunities and just conform to traditional and Cortra- mindsets.

I lied to their face about their medical care in their doctors. And they still support me. So I can make up anything that I want at any time because they'll still support me. Yes. You know, you look smarter when you're sitting in an oversized chair. Oversized chairs we understand we're in radio at Rice University. They were they were sitting in these there these massive chairs. They they're completely oversized. There's they don't need. They don't need a chair that size. We are. We are the world's leading largest oil producer now because of Obama. Yes. They lowered corporate taxes too. So the economy is booming. Wow. I did that. No, no, no, no, No, MR Obama, did not build that. Well, look he was against the Keystone Pipeline, correct? Yes. He was against remember in that in that the great week. I believe it was August of twenty sixteen. Where Hillary Clinton came out? No, no. It was I believe it was first Bernie Sanders. Said his goal was to kill the trucking jobs. Right. That was his goal. We're going to get rid of the trucking jobs in everything on rail and clear the roads out so we he was his goal was get rid of all the tracking jobs, which of course, we laughed at then Hillary Clinton came out and said she was going to kill the coal jobs. Remember a few weeks later. She didn't apologize to remember those are. So there was a coal miner or some that she had to apologize to forgot what it was. Yeah. She had to wasn't a quite a quite the beer summit that Obama had to do. Right. But yeah, she had a sit down with a coal miner, and essentially try and walk it back.

Even though it was approved by his administration by his EPA all the agencies that needed to approve drilling off the coast said, it's a go. It's a go. Go the press. Cancelled the oil drilling. Why? Global warming climate change yet the president's own words, and now he is trying to take credit. Bean. Well, remember was largest oil producer member wise deal because it was a deal with Canada.

It would it would take a little bit of doing. But. Yeah, it can. And they kept saying, no, no, no, no. This is forever or you can say that. But it is not forever. And but that was his policy that on federal land on the on everything within his administration's control. He was shutting down oil one of the first things. He did remember at the end of the Bush administration. It was the the oil up in Wyoming, bright and shale and Utah the shale the shale oil right that that the President Bush said, okay, let's go after it. Right. Obama administration came in this one of the first thing to do was shut it down. It was I think it was actually March two thousand nine I believe is when when he shot it down. Just a couple of months after taking office. But oil went up in spite of of him. He just can't stand it. But don't you love it? Because of me, he didn't say our administration because of me. And so if you if you support, and you believe Obama, but you also believe in, you know, the old the old, you know, drilling and oil and all of that is killing the planet. You gotta blame him. Yeah. Which which is it. Right. Can you have it both ways? Can you take can you take responsibility? As President Obama has. You know, we we we that was bragging by the way that was not saying, listen, it's gone up. And I'm responsible for it. But I'm not proud of it like a Bill Clinton would say, I I did it. But I'm not happy about it. I signed it. But I wish I had no Clinton would want to have it both ways. Yeah. I know that you know, we try to do everything against it. And and and you know, but but the oil production skyrocketed, and and people have jobs, and and so they had great really great jobs and gasoline prices all went down because of it. But but still I'm terribly torn by it. But the fact is that were good things that happened with it, even though we're destroying the planet. The same time that I regret doing. It's all give and take yet. No this. But this this is this is just flat out bragging bragging. Yeah. He's proud of the fact that he did that he said he did it. Here's here's quote, suddenly American quote. So we just played it. But just repeat again, suddenly, America's largest oil producer. That was me. People say, thank you. Exactly to him. So if he's responsible if Obama's response since climate change has been a big topic this week if Obama is stating that he alone. He didn't say our administration. He didn't say the oil producers. He said that was me he is taking sole responsibility. Yes. For oil production and the United States becoming the world's largest oil producer. Well, then it's Obama that's responsible for the climate change problems that we have not Trump, right? Which is it anybody on the left, which is it. Because if you support Obama, and you believe he's telling the truth, right? And you believe that oil is killing the planet. Well, then you're going to have to blame him for it. We're the largest oil producer. And he's the reason. Right. It's not even the oil companies. No. He's the reason he said it it was that was me people me. I don't even know they're actually a anybody else work. I don't know if there's one other person on working in the oilfields, I think he's doing all the work himself, by the way to our friend Carl that works, you know, in in in fracking, you had nothing to do with this. That's right. Take credit on your crew had nothing to do with as you can take you can keep taking that money and thank Ovambo because you're doing nothing. He did everything. Go cash that check in every time. You do say thank you Obama. Thank you. Hey, we didn't that wasn't a comedy bit. Someone. Doing a really great Obama impersonation. He said that. It's because of him. Nobody else gets the credit. Obama is responsible for the destruction of the earth from his own mouth. He's going to be at that twenty four hour thing without war, right? Same thing on the world stage. I doubt it. Yeah. President obama. Why don't you go on the twenty four seven Al Gore thing that's going on? Yeah. And right. You can introduce the Google dials. Right. And right before you can say, I'm responsible for the United States being the largest oil producer in the world. Yes. You. Should do that. He should do it between every act. And the people there should thank him. They the ones in the audience that live audience at rice. They did. Yeah. Sure. They applauded it. That was me. Thank you say. Thank you. Right. We're we're the protesters. Man Earth Day is going to be really great. What does that again? If you wanna know if you want to understand why it's all a con job. Obama. Yeah. Right there. Right. But he just says here's the thing. You guys all the protesters out there, the, you know, anti oil types, you kept pointing to Dick Cheney say, it wasn't even Bush. You Obama this serious? It's like, David Blaine. You just totally is this your card. That's exactly what that's what Obama just did. See you can't even blame Cheney. No, it was Obama. This is the greatest sleight of hand world history. We thought it was all Bush. You guys thought he was the cool. Save the earth guy. Nope. Nope. Nope. He's the reason Obama is the reason that the earth is doomed. That's right. He's the reason for the oil season. Eight six six he want to get him. We'd love to hear from you. Please. I have no idea what you'll say. Because we're not sure.

Federal Reserve, President and President Trump discussed on WSJ What's News
"President Trump has not been happy with the course of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, and he has stepped up his criticism of the fed and its chairman. Jerome Powell Mr. Trump made his latest comments in a White House interview Tuesday with the Wall Street Journal and joining us now is one of the journal reporters. The president spoke to Mike bender. Mike, first of all, was the White House interview with the president strictly about the fed or did he touch on other topics? This was one of the wide ranging interviews that we've been able to do President Trump over the course of the last couple of years. It was a half hour in the Oval Office, and it was wide ranging. Anything was fair game to ask. We spent quite a bit of time talking about the death of the journalist in a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey. We talked about the fed for quite a bit. We also touched on taxes, Michael cone and a few other economic issues as well. He said about chairman, Powell that quote, he almost looks like he's happy raising interest rates. Yeah, yes. Pretty remarkable thing to say. The way we kind of got on that topic is. We just ask them a big broad open ended question heading into the midterms. He's made the economic growth. One of the most important issues in this election, and I just ask them point blank, what? What do you see as the biggest risks for the economy? Right now, as answer was at a single answer, the fed and we dove into that quite a bit. And what he's upset about is you takes very personally his economy. Yes, it's his economy. He talked about, I have a hot economy going. He talked about growth as in my numbers. He c- he compared it to growth under President, Obama referring to it specifically as a competition, and that these rate increases which we've seen a handful of this year who's quote was they, they make it impossible to compete, and he was talking about competing with Obama. They're not with China or Japan or Europe, although obviously that that is that is significant concern of his. So in other words, Mr Obama was boosted by the fact that there were lower interest rates are no interest rates. And his economy is being held back by the fact that interest rates are. Rising. That's right. And he wanted to spend a portion of our interview talking exactly about that and sort of imagining what the economy would look like right now, if the interest rates were at or near zero, like they were under Obama. Now, of course, there is sound economic theory about why the fed is raising these rates. They've been forecasting that they've sort of previewing these increases for quite a while. And I also asked the president that why do you think the fed raising the rates? And he paused and looked at me and said, well, you know, disguise was supposed to be a low interest guy, and he turned out not to be so his. His answer was not about economic theory. It was it was sort of that he had gotten duped in in picking Paul. Okay. Yeah. Did he indicate that he wants to fire Jerome Powell? So we obviously we asked him that and the law is a little murky about whether the president can fire the Federal Reserve chairman, previous presidents have inquired and previous White House attorneys have said, you need a significant cause other than you disagree with policy.

"Here's the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo said about John Kerry's visits to Iranian officials feels that he's trying to undermine our foreign policy. We pulled out of the Iranian deal in John Kerry, considered to be one of the top things on his resume. Here's what secretary of state Pompeo set about Kerry's activities, solely the legal determinations to others. But what secretary Kerry has done is unseemly an unprecedented. This is a former secretary of state engaged with the world's largest state sponsor of terror. According to him. Right. You have to take my word for these are his answers. He was he was talking. He was telling them to wait out this administration. You can't find precedent for this in US history. And. Secretary ought not to secretary ought not to engage in that kind of behavior. It's inconsistent with what the foreign policy of in that states is as directed by this president, and it is beyond inappropriate for him to be engaged us. I remember I saw him. I saw him in Munich the at the security conference. He was there with if I have my facts, right because I think I saw them all with my own eyes secretary Monet's and Wendy Sherman, the troika and I am confident that they met with their troika counterparts. Although one can perhaps secretary Kerry if my recollection with respect to that is accurate. I wasn't in the meeting, but I'm reasonably confident that he was not there in support of US policy with respect to the Islamic Republic of Iran who this week. Fired Katusha rockets. Towards the United States embassy in Baghdad and took action against our consulate in Bosra. Has it had an impact? Is it hurt your efforts? That's the word. I I've I've I think I think you understand what I wish it has that former secretary of state all of them from either political party ought not to be engaged in actively undermining US Paul actively undermining US policy as a former secretary of state is literally unheard of. None dare call it collusion. This is an ex Trump State Department official name Christian Whitten there used to be a saying that differences end at the water's edge. It was sort of considered uncouth to criticize the president at all that's gone by the wayside. But John Kerry leave it to John Kerry, take it to a whole new level. He met with Iran's foreign minister, this is the foreign minister, the senior diplomat from our biggest adversary in the Middle East also met with the Germans and the French didn't effort to undermine a president's foreign policy. It's really quite unconscionable. Would you see this is how? Democrats roll I told you about the letter that was sent to top officials during the one thousand nine hundred eighty four campaign. And Ted Kennedy wanted to let the Russian to know that the real danger was this guy named Ronald Reagan and suggested ways that Russia could improve their image. None dare call it collusion. What about when Senator? Barack Obama was running for president two thousand eight had conversations with the Iraqi Foreign Minister during the time that they were the Bush administration was trying to negotiate a stay behind force. Here's a headline from the telegraph. Barack Obama tried to undermine George W Bush's Iraq negotiations. Quote, Mr Obama, the democratic presidential candidate also said the deal should be delayed until Mr Bush out of office. According to Iraq's ambassador to the US delicious denied by Mr. Obama's campaign next sentence. The disclosures likely to raise questions over the propriety of a Mr Obama contact with the government of a country in which the current president is still conducting a war. Next sentence. It has been confirmed that Mr Obama spoke with Hosni Mubarak the rack foreign minister during Mr. safari visit to Washington in June, the talk which was at Mr. of request was carried over the phone because Mr Obama was still on the campaign trail. Iraqi ambassador to the United States quote in the conversation. The Senator urged Iraq to delay the deal between Iraq and the United States until the new administration was in place. He said that Mr Obama said, quote, the new administration will have a free hand to opt out close quote of the deal. The Obama people denied that Obama said. Listen to this quote spokesman at the White House and the embassy in Baghdad declined to comment close quote, and this is the difference between Trump and everybody else. The Trump administration is commenting on the meddling going on by John Kerry. Bush didn't say squat about what Obama did. Now. Was what Obama did? Was that collusion? The plea deal by Paul Manafort, how does that way on President Trump? Here's a conservative. Byron York said I don't see it that way. I think I think all this kind of talk that the Manafort is the big one. Now, you're gonna see progress and Trump or other people will be charged with collusion with Russia. I think that all of that is based on an assumption a belief that there is some big conspiracy between Trump and Russia that only Paul Manafort can reveal. But remember Robert Muller has had the cooperation of Paul manafort's closest associate Rick gates for months now, he said the cooperation of Michael Flynn who is President Trump's national security advisor during the campaign. He's he's had the cooperation of lots of people who haven't been charged with anything who were participants and they've willingly interviewed handed over documents Muller. So. In all of this Muller has not alleged or charged anyone with having any role in a conspiracy to collude with Russia to.

"We're going to begin tonight with something we rarely see two presidents past and present on the campaign trail going off on each other. Former President Barack Obama broke with tradition today by calling out President Trump by name and telling students at the university of Illinois democracy itself is at stake in the midterm elections. Nancy Cortez says there are undermining our alliances cozying up to Russia. What happened to the Republican party? The forty fourth president re entered the political fray informatics fashion accusing his successor of stoking racial division was supposed to stand up to discrimination. And we're sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers. How hard can that be saying that Nazis are bad with control of congress at stake? President Obama argued the GOP has lost its way it did not start with Donald Trump. Here's a symptom not the costs. He's just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years. It was a striking turnaround for a man who initially vowed to help President Trump. And who in the mold of past presidents has largely stayed silent. Even as his successor slammed him, I inherited a mess. Obama. Didn't do anything today. Mr Obama sought to settle some of those scores. Let's just remember when this recovery started. Even bringing up that new op Ed by an anonymous top Trump official not doing us a service by actively promoting ninety percent of the crazy stuff that's coming out of this White House. And then saying don't worry, we're preventing the other ten percent. The current president pretended not to notice I watched it. But I fell asleep. I've found is very good. Very good for sleeping. I think he's done to take some credit. He was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that's happening to our country. This was just the first stop on. What?
