"Of our international law off approach to global affairs or international law director Skip Ash also retired Colonel United States Army. Skip, We've been talking about this Iran situation. How serious is this threat now, with the change of administration and likely changes in policy, I think it's quite serious. We've got it Looks like we're gonna have a return to a policy of projecting weakness. Remember, Mr Obama said, We run a lead from behind. It Looks like we're about ready to do that again. The way the Iranians air acting right now by arresting American nationals by rattling sabers, and everything else indicates that they have absolutely no fear or respect of the incoming Obama of the incoming Biden administration. So I think this has the opportunity to undo all the progress made in the Middle East by President Trump who acted decisively and got things done. We're about ready to go back to ah, to policy like Mr Obama's, where he would draw a red line in the sand that would be challenged, and then he would back off and draw another one. He never rose to the occasion to project power. And it seems to me that the Iranian regime respects power. They understand military power, the understand a push back and I have. I'm afraid that this administration by some of the air appointee Send by statements made by the incoming president indicate weakness, not strength, since the was very quickly Well, they try to undo the Abrahamic or do you think they'll find administration? What do you think they will They fulfill the obligation? Yeah, I think they will absolutely inadvertently screw the whole thing up. They will go in with the best intentions thinking our way's the right way And they will sabotage the process We made. I don't think they're wicked or malicious, innit?

"Big son of your soul, Mr Breath. Um um Mr Obama, huge fan. One for each year for a bed. My question to you is What do you see happening this year for human rights issues across the world as an Indian. I am Quite heartened by the fact that we have, you know, abiding presidency, which may somehow put some checks and balances in place for, you know, unfettered. A sort of terrorism that's taking hold in India and like all over the world, like the corner of eyes has Obligated issues off human rights both in this country and abroad. What do you have to say on that? And where do you see the world going with regards to human rights issues. Yes, you know, motive. Your own Indian prime minister has been good on anti corruption but horrible on human rights and the U. S India relationship is on balance better than it has been, in part because the China relationship is so much worse, and both leaders support that that's going to continue. Under Biden. So I mean, even though the Biden administration will be more consistent in not only what they say, but also walking the top on human rights where Trump obviously really didn't care about it. So you have Pompeo making statements, but the administration having virtually zero interest Even though that's gonna change. This is a world that is much more fragmented in terms of the willingness and ability to uphold values like that. I mean, you look at what's happened to Hong Kong. The Chinese have unilaterally ended. The one state two systems arrangement and the only response that's been effective is the UK giving citizenship and passports to a lot of people that want to get out. But there's no more ability to be democratic Opposition. You just had, you know the head of the major newspaper taken away in leg irons. Right. And so I mean, when you're talking about things that are considered domestic sovereign issues, the impunity That my friend David Miliband, the former British foreign secretary, coins this as the age of impunity. The age of impunity comes directly on the back of what I college easier a world in absence of leadership, human rights becomes, unfortunately, a lower common denominator. Share in Melville. E. Around w in my sea with Ian Bremmer hush era. Hi. Good morning. Money, Brian. Good morning, dear. Um and I have a question when you mentioned how President Obama and then myself identified and Uh, they're kind of out of touch regarding the China and what was going on with controversies in China. I wanted to see how What are your thoughts? Visibly, President Obama and Mr Biden's, uh, Policy visit the Iran because between I mean among the Iranian American community there was there's been this concerned in during the Obama administration millions of dollars released to the government of Islamic Republic without holding them responsible. Do what they were doing in suppressing the human rights on people's movements inside Iran. There are rumors that they're the 2500 green cards even to appease the mullah's to get the deal. And moving forward. People are mean Iranian Americans are kind of concerned and disappointed about what New Biden administration, even though many of us are Democratic, you know voters, but it's kind of petrifying. For us to see moving forward how it will play out, so I wanted to see what are your thoughts about that? Well, the Iranian regime is, of course, an abusive regime that is a run run by theocrats. And the Iranian American community that got out you know, many of whom escaped the revolution and 79 understandably are not looking to have a good relationship with that with that government, When you think about the abuse is on the way they repressed dissent in the country. But so I'm very sympathetic to your view, and I've spoken to the Iranian community at length about this issue. But I do want to say I mean, you mentioned the fact that under Obama and Biden lots of money was given to Iran. That money was Iranian money that was seized illegally by the United States. It was money that was sent to the U. S to buy arms before the revolution and 79 after the revolution. Obviously, we weren't going to sell them the arms anymore. But we never give them their money back. So we gave them their money plus interest. It was a breach of international law. I understand that we're much more powerful. So we do what we want. We don't care about international law. But still we had no right to have the money. Now, um Let's be clear that the bite administration wants to go back to the JCP away the Iranian nuclear deal. That deal was oversold by the Obama administration. I don't think it was a bad deal, but was a very limited deal. It didn't it didn't open diplomatic relations between the two countries. It didn't end sanctions between the two between the U. S. And Iran on And so Jake Sullivan, who was just on with my good friend Fareed Zakaria over the weekend, you know, made it very clear. They talked about this that the bide administration wants to also open not just to talk about rejoining the old Iranian nuclear deal. Also addressing issues of ballistic missiles and addressing issues of Iran's support for extremist organizations around the region, and the Iranians just announced a couple days ago. They're now going to be enriching at 20%. Their uranium gets them very close to weapons capacity. Because they want to press by them to just go back to the old nuclear deal with nothing else so that this is they're not gonna be easy to negotiate with it all. And while I don't think there's gonna be war, this is this is not an easy lift, provided But I'll throw in for listeners who don't have the benefit that I have of actually reading your list of top political risks and red herrings that one of your three red herrings, meaning one of the things that you think people are too concerned about. Is Iran US confrontation and you're right Ties between the U. S. And Iran will be neither as productive nor destructive as many fear. You remember last year my God when you and I talked about this last year, And everyone was saying we just killed Sulamani in Iran. Oh, my God. It's gonna be warned. I'm like, calm down. Calm down. The Iranians are not suicidal, like they didn't know that. There were any red lines Trump to show them what the Red line is. They're now gonna back down. That's what they did..

Former Presidents Obama, Clinton and Bush say they'd get a COVID-19 vaccine on camera to prove safety
"George W. Bush and Barack Obama are volunteering to get their covert 19 vaccine shots. On camera.

Time now for the O'Reilly update message of the day or rhetorical brawl between the radical left and former president Barack Obama. It's all about de funding the police Promoting his book, Mr Obama said, quote. I guess you can use a snappy slogan like defund the police. But you lose a big audience. The minute you say it. Which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done. The key is deciding. Do you want to actually get something done, or do you want to feel good among the people you already agree with on quote? Well, it didn't take long for the anti cop radical zealots to respond. The always provocative Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio, Cortez said quote The whole point of protest thing is to make people uncomfortable Activist take that discomfort with the status quo and advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small and grows to folks who complain. Protester Man's make others uncomfortable. That's the point on quote from Ms Cortez. Congress woman, Ellen Omar quote. We lose people in the hands of the police. It's not a slogan but a policy demand and centering the demand for equitable investments and budgets for communities across the country. Gets US progress and safety unquote. Of course, the point of view that advocates for de funding the police is insane and dangerous to you. And Barack Obama is correct some facts to back up my statement. There are about 80,000 law enforcement people in America right now. Last year, law enforcement killed 14 unarmed black people 13 men, one woman, and most of those were police involved, as they say. In fact, according to the Justice Department, African Americans commit homicides at eight times the rate of whites and Hispanics combined. In the 75 largest counties of America, blacks commit more than 50% off all violent crime. Go there, just 15% of the population and remember Last year, 14 on on black people killed by cops. Rest for violent crimes totaled 1.2 million last year. And the zealots want to defund the police. 1.2 million arrests for violent crime and no cops. So this is crazy. And it's out of control and the media allows it. They don't give you the facts as I just did. There is no epidemic of law enforcement harming black Americans. It does not exist. Period. I'm Bill O'Reilly and I approve that message by actually writing it disagree. I want to hear from you, Bill it, Bill O'Reilly calm and please.

Nato supreme allied commander retired four-star navy. Admiral james redis. He is chief. International security diplomacy and less for nbc news and msnbc and former treasury official on morning joe economic analyst. Steve rattner joins us as well. Good to have you both admiral. Let's begin with some of president-elect biden's foreign policy selections the wall street journal opinion page said. They were internationalists but also said on the other. Hand talking about blinken and Jake sullivan they were also more hawkish. On some obama era debates. Mr sullivan supported antitank mrs for ukraine which president obama posed. Mr blinken favored the iraq war in two thousand and two intervention in libya. Mr blanket was known for repeating the mantra superpowers. Don't bluff regarding mr obama's red line fiasco about the use of chemical weapons and syria. I would take that like me. You you agree. Superpowers don't bluff. You don't draw red line and then step back from it. And apparently that's what our new secretary of state Believes as well. Well let's start with the team itself kind of step back for a minute show and this is the most experience group coming in That i can remember certain going back to bush lawn and before that maybe to the kennedy administration if you listen to the titles that make it. Just read off deputy to this deputy to that do this. These are now people who are stepping up to cabinet level. They are experienced. They are well prepared boy. How refreshing is that number two and maybe more importantly joe. This is a very collegial team. This he'll give you a sports analogy. This one's for mike barnicle. This is like the one thousand nine hundred eighties celtics basketball team. They don't really care who. The high score is more interested in getting assists that running up the score out there on the field trying to make each other look good. It's that kind of group. And i worked with all of them when i was supreme allied commander in. They were in all their jobs. And then finally. You're absolutely right. This is an internationalist group. A little bit of hawkish edge to it. But i think that's okay one. It's tempered as you see from this group by that that instinctive desire to reach out into the international world. They'll look for allies. They'll look for coalitions. They'll look to work with international organizations. I think this is a a fine selection and will serve the nation. Well
Obama: US 'adversaries have seen us weakened'
"Barack Obama called Donald Trump at about three o'clock in the morning to congratulate him. Even though Mr Trump had lost the popular vote and took the electoral college by less than 1% in three states today, President Trump declines to accept the verdict of the voters despite losing by greater margins to President elect Joe Biden. Mr Obama hasn't spoken of the election standoff until today. We spoke to the 44th president on the release of his new book, A Promised Land, a memoir of his early years and first term. What is your advice in this moment for President Trump? Well, the president is A public servant. They are temporary occupants of the office by design. And When your time is up. Uh, Then it is your job, too. With the country first and thinking beyond your own ego and your own. Interests and your own disappointments. My advice to President Trump is if you want. At this late stage in the game to be remembered as somebody who could come country First. It's time for you to do the same thing. In your view, it is time for him to concede. Absolutely I will. I mean, I think it was time for him to concede. Probably the day after the election or at the latest two days after the election, I When you look at the numbers objectively, Joe Biden will have won handily. There is no scenario in which Any of those states would turn the other way, and certainly not enough to reverse be outcome of the election. More than the courtesy of a concession, the Trump White House is declining to free up the usual funds and facilities for the incoming administration. President elect Biden is not receiving secret national security briefings. As Mr Trump did when he was president elect. What In your estimation? Would our adversaries be thinking right now? Russia China about the fact that the transition is not moving forward. Well, I look, I think our adversaries Have seen US weakened not just as a consequence this election, but over the last Several years. We have these cleavages in the body politick. That They're convinced they can exploit. There's an old adage that partisan politics should stop at the water's edge right that.

The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery was a hospital in the civil war. Clara Barton and Walt Whitman cared for patients in the building where the 16th president consoled his wounded. We joined Mr Obama's peers in the gallery of the President's to talk about his book. I'm curious about the title. I think a lot of people feel that we are farther from a promised land.

Obama says Trump's unfounded claims are "delegitimizing" democracy
"60 Minutes, former President Barack Obama Addresses President Trump's unfounded so far claims of voter fraud. The president doesn't like to lose and never admits loss. I'm more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly no better are going along with this are humoring. Him in this fashion. It is one more step in de legitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that's a dangerous path. President Trump has so far refused to concede the election to president like Joe Biden and has launched a syriza of lawsuits alleging widespread fraud in several states. But there has been no evidence presented to support the president's claims. Mr Obama will peer in his first interview about his new book, A Promised Land on Sunday on both 60 minutes.

"My heart continues to break for Mr Obama's his family that they have had to wait so long for justice, and that case will be one of my top priorities. When I assume office in January. We've been clear throughout this campaign that we think that our community Needs to have the power to decide whether a law enforcement officer has engaged in misconduct.

He's already got his mind made up and, you know he's gonna impanel a grand jury and present the evidence Dia's can get what they want out of a grand jury. There's no doubt in my mind. I want exact if a cop broke the law here than a cop should be punished. If that's the case, of course, but he's already there. He's already made a decision of his mind. The eagle's already landed. Garza intends to take the case to the grand jury. And he said, Hey, doubled down on this. Garza, who was running against Republican Martin Harry carried 70 to 30%.

One that meets the aspirations of our community. Now on the surface, you can't disagree with what he said No, but the devil's in the details here and there is a tone there you can you can.

Obama urges Americans to honor John Lewis' legacy by voting
"For the funeral of Congressman John Lewis rose to its feet with an up roar of applause during a eulogy from former President Barack Obama. Mr Obama talked about the selfless sacrifice of the civil rights leader and that the voting rights he fought for our under siege by President Trump, who's floating the idea of delaying the election. Joining us live to talk about CBS analyst Leonard Steinhorn. Great to have you, Leonard? Happy to be here so to other presidents were on hand. But it was poor former President Obama, who offered this impassioned defense of democratic ideals that he says are being threatened. He's been more outspoken, but not like this. Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the

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.
