"Wendell must you'll go read the same books because it's the exact same advice Well i know window doesn't read so So that's not no but no no. It's true you know when those that involve at least as a player obviously is greek career there and then he came back and you know he understands it. You know the pressure and it all comes down to the great thing about it is both cities have fabulous passionate fans and they wanna win and If you go to be that passionate and you wanna win their comes consequences and demands. And i'll tell you what i always say this when i was at much plan and you come off along roach from west and you're exhausted and the hardest gained a play. Is that first game back home. And you know it's because of the travel. The jet lagged a three hour. Time change and you get back in the fans alike while we have not seen you in two weeks you know. Here's my ticket. I'm coming to the game. I want to see you guys dominate. Your back home should be fired up and you grow. You're like i got nothing. It's the worst feeling in the world. I remembered montreal first period and we recommit west and we would have a great record of maybe five wins and seven gains and feel good. You got nothing and rate off the hop those fans of me. Let y'all you'd hear a few brews and all that and you're like okay. I better pick up my game. So you know it's amazing how the mind is powerful and it gets your jumpstart got nothing in the tank and that's cheer mental pure fan pressure which makes awesome. I am curious about you mentioned earlier on the playoffs. And i'll tell you what that was last year in the bubble very challenging time for everybody who understand that. And you're behind the bench and you're able to sweep the pittsburgh penguins this this season where trade deadline time montreal was all out and they find themselves in the in the bubble in the postseason. And you did something. That was pretty special. I guess this is a long winded. Way kirk of me asking. How did you do that. It's really interesting when you look at it. you know. covert hits. Were sitting in montreal and we play buffalo. That night looking back at that game never happened. If buffalo beat us at night they would advance and went to the bubble and we would. Not of the game doesn't happen. We end up being the team that gets in loss so here. We are a non playoff team Circumstances happen we get a chance to go into charro and compete in the playoffs. No basically what happened. Is you know we got together. We prepared a lot of meetings because it was a short camp and the players credit. And we did our meetings. We did our prep. We walked in. And i thought we're know a well prepared teens. I was ready to go and we have set a good hockey team and surprised a lot of people and when that happens. You know it's quickly. We see every year once you get into the playoffs. Anything can happen and momentum kicks in confidence kicks in timing kicks in and then unfortunately you co got sick but the nice thing was within a day. We're well aware that he had recovered. And he was in good shape and he was going to be fine so it gave us a chance to go week. Analysis focus on round two with the team. That was philadelphia. That was the hottest team in the league going into the bubbles and again the guy performed well they played hard and almost a an upset in round to the guy who i think really took. A huge step was suzuki. Yeah you know what. And i think. That was the thing that happened. That was great was it gave suzuki and k. K some of these young guys some an opportunity to to play and gain confidence in a listen. It was a unique situation. We're in toronto. All focuses on the playoffs in two places edmonton toronto. And these guys shine under the under the pressure. So he's a very smart player is a very methodical player. That was his opportunity to say. Hey you know listen a pretty darn good player in junior and had great success in. I think i could do that this levels while so you know it showed that you know what a good. Nhl player this kid is and what he's going to. He's going to get better and better. This may be unfair. And i almost hate doing this to players but is there anyone. You couldn't compare knicks zouqi to in the nhl. He's a huge fan of patrice bergeron trains in stratford with joey. Hitchin loves working out with ryan. O'reilly is there anyone you could compare them to. Birger is a is a good example. In a way. Because suzuki two things ee takes a lot of pride in in his game. Offensively eddie he takes a lot of pride in the game without the puck in. I think that gives him the ability to be a two way player in both players. They don't play with a mean streak but they have a little bit of edge to that their competitors and you're not going to get them off their game. They're both going to be focused on the agenda. That's at hand and and you know whether it's trying to shut down other elite player or they got a score big goal and he's a mature kid for his age and he knows how to play the game and he's smart so when you when you compete and you're smart you're just going to get better and better in any sport or anything you do. And and that's what suzuki Has the potential of what are your thoughts on. Cochran yemi k. k. Is a a kid. That's in that progress of getting better and better. You know he came over and he's got the body the still filling out and you know people forget the any gels tough and you know. You're playing against men quickly and you know. I know that he was playing against overseas before it came over and everything. But i tell you it takes a couple of years to get your feet wet in understand new your opponents who your plan yet. Learn the north american game a little bit. You know as well so that takes a little bit of time just died alone and so if you see the progress in him. He's he's a kid that starting to get that more. Man's strength skating's improved. Strengthen proved is a heck of a shot. He sees the ice well. He's another kid that's very determined and wants to get better. Wants to be a part of a winning team and it's taken he's he's he's still a young he's still one of the youngest players in the nhl. And you put that all together. You got a kid. That's got a lot of potential. And again i say this all the time. If you're willing to want to get better you probably will get better in those guys. Have that type of attitude. We ask bob hartley this question. We just had him on the the podcast not too long ago and we asked him about. Some of his favourite coaches not necessarily mentors coaches that he's fired a couple of things one. When did it dawn on you. The coaching might be something you'd be interested in. And who the coaches kirk that had the most were the biggest effect on you all your way through the nhl. Our let's start with some coaches. Yeah definitely that as a player. Pat burns was amazing. When i when i got the much. Y'all a one coach that say he had that ability to grab you as a team in avoi- hated as practices. Because there was so fletcher driving one on one defensive. Grinding work sexy fancy drills. That have burned the iaea the ability to say listen. Our game is really simple and were probably not going to surprise anybody with any little tricks or anything like when i was playing montreal but this is who we are. This is what you expect and we're going to play our game. We're going to beat you at our game and he always made. You had that feeling. You're going to win every single game and you did it because of expected you to play the team game and do your role at the best you're capable of doing and that was it. That was simple. He owns like birds. Real tough guy which he was but he was so fair and he's like what are you surprised about. You didn't do your job tonight. So i didn't use or hey you played well but i expect you to play. Well guess what you gotta do it against born because if you want to win you got to be consistent and i i love birdseye because you knew exactly where you stood with birdseye jock. The murs abba commend after burns. Even as much we wanna cup with them totally different personality. Totally different coach. But you know you look at jock..

Muller who considering his background both in coaching and playing as well elliott really doesn't need much of an introduction on a podcast like this so we'll start off with kirk. Hello how're you. What is kirk muller. Been doing lately. Well first of all how. You guys I've actually down here in california. For the big reason that i just became a grandfather for the fourth time and came down to visit my daughter. Who's married to. Brad malone evolve with the bakersfield condors so i watch a lot of american hockey league games and Enjoying my my new granddaughter. What is the feeling of becoming a grandfather. And by the way you probably look like the youngest grandfather and i've been nonstop. I have a three year old down here as well. So i haven't had time to shave so i don't look like eliot and the play offs but you know what i'll tell you what it's a grind and it's a busy schedule but Keeping up to a three year old and a newborn. And i think i think it beats it. But it's been it's been amazing. It's been special that i'm able to be here and it's been fun. It's been fun i hope. You and stacey spoils grandkids rotten. That's what you're there for. Yeah you know. We just absolutely came in and Took over the grandkids and all the good habits that they've been working on especially everyone who has a three year old knows we've kind of just spoiled them so we're gonna tip toe outta here head back the cat as soon and they're gonna have to break all the bad habits you know kirk. It's you've had some time to sit back and think. The canadians made a coaching change back in february. And just you know on the couple months since what do you look back about. What do you think about. How much do you watch them right. Now when you're out here that's the one thing you get to see the eastern games and then catch the west games because of the three hundred billion change so you get the benefit of seeing the you know more games usually but i've caught brad's games. A lot of the american hockey league gains. 'cause they're still act out here playing in bakersfield. So you know it's good good chance to sit back and watch games and not have to be involved with one team so you can be neutral mind on everything but the i've caught much y'all playing and they ran into some injuries to some key. Guys that have Aussie like any team. You know it's tough. When you lose key guys like gallagher polly byron's of big hit the team as far as our core guy glue guy and all that and with obviously carey. So you know they've They've gone through the challenges of schedule. A tough schedule with injuries. And all that but there are really good group of guys and they've got a lot of character there a lot of good additions and and i wish them. Well what it's like being a pressure market like that and how hard it is and this is a tough year in the world for cove it and everything and the challenge in your and you know. I hope those guys do well. Because they're good people. You mentioned that marketplace and jonathan drouin has taken leave from the team right now and we've talked a lot about the pressures on hockey players in the big markets and have made the point previous at montreal. Might just be top of that list. Give us a sense of what that market is like and the nature of the pressure. That's on while everybody in the montreal. Canadians organization while it's what makes it a special place and the fans are passionate. The media as we know is a lot of pressure Passionate you know the whole province. The whole much fans within the country. The north america the world. You know the history is high expectations. But that's what you really enjoyed. You know coaching. They're playing their feel to be a part of that organization. But it's like when i got treated there as a player and d. cardinals said to me rate up. Start one of the first things. He said he goes. I gotta tell you something. I know you came from new jersey and you know the market down there but just understand that if you're the goat today don't worry about it because tomorrow somebody else will be or it's a new story so you can understand that it's a day to day event What happens today as old news tomorrow and always understand that. If you're playing well you're probably not playing as well as your being told you are and if you're playing poorly you're probably not be playing poorly as you are so the key is longevity and and being even keel and and riding the waves and if you could do that in those markets like toronto and much. Y'all new york. And all that. I think you know you understand what you're there that you're not going to be great all time. You're not going to be poor all the time but just ride the ways and be consistent and just stay the course and if you have that confidence of doing that then you see people do well in those markets because they thrive on the the other part of it. Which is the the pressure in the excitement and the the demands and everything and that has a player. I loved playing there because of those reasons. It's full funny. That jamie baker always said that when bigger ended up in toronto wendel clark told them listen. You're never as good as they say you are. And you're never as bad as i've always remembered that kirk you and.

"There's already been some reports that arizona for example also the mutual parting with rick. Talk it. they're going young. Have some of the names that have been outdoor already rocky thompson. Nate leeman lane lambert. I think would be in that conversation. You know one thing that makes a lot of sense to me there. I just don't know if he'd be interested. Is mike van ryan. Because mike van ryan coach was an assistant in arizona and then he went to saint louis. Where when bill armstrong was there so that makes a lot of sense. I don't know a van. Ryan would want that particular job. Like i don't know so arizona to me what that says is they know what they're doing here and that is rebuilding a bit. I'm not sure yet. What columbus vision is let's get to arizona so the parting of the ways after four seasons. Rick talk at arizona coyotes. I'm curious about just because it was an interesting hiring at the time. So i wonder what the pitch was and that's cory stillman. So they are cory stillman away from the sub rules of the. Oh l. where he was coaching his son. I would have to figure that scott walker would have been part of that pitch to get him into arizona. And i'm not saying that the pitches something along the lines of. Hey you know at the minute. The organizations done with with rick talk district. Good place for you and you may end up as a as a head coach of this team. But i wonder like when you talk about the you know the this team wanting to go younger and wanting someone that relates to younger hockey players stillman's already there. The organization knows him. He's forty seven years old. I dunno fridge. That's the name that pops right out. It's funny you mentioned is. Because i think you told me this and i've asked around and the answer i've heard is not yet like i think he will get his chance sunday. I've heard cory stillman will begin. Nhl coach someday but someone who was handicapping. The situation for me said he doesn't think that's going to be the case yet but they think he will be h. l. head coach sunday curious. What quote unquote happened here. With rick target and the arizona. Coyotes do you have a sense of why he is no longer with the organization. I just don't think that was a marriage that was ever going to last right. So rick talk. It was hired by the previous administration. There's a new administration that came in bill. Armstrong talk was still under contract just in texting around the organization. Today after the announcement was made one of the words that got was awkward. Just describe it all year. You kinda tell that you know. They weren't on the same page. They tried to keep it away from the players. You know people new people know they knew that it wasn't coming back. They didn't see completely eye to eye on on some things. And i think everybody kind of knew it was going to come to this at the end of the year. I don't think this comes as a huge shock. Anyone any idea. What's next for rick talk. It worked as a head. Coach worked as an assistant. Well i think. I think he's going to have some options. Anthea stewart was tweeting. Of course he played with ron francis in pittsburgh. Where does your mother for show up. And what could that mean for rick target. You know one of the things that talk. It has a great reputation with and you know it's it's not a surprise when you hear about what is what is relationship is with phil kessel is that he's one of the best around at handling players. Who are not easy to reach that. He is fantastic at dealing with players like that. So i wonder. Is there a team that thinks they have a situation like that a player they need to get to. That's one where talk. It really knows what to do. You mentioned kestler. Get a quick thought from you on unfil- kessel. I was texting with a lawyer friend of mine who works for more of the hockey organizations and he said look at phil kessel twenty goals again shortened season and he made the point that in a league that so strongly values offensive production. This guy produces each and every season throw in the nine hundred consecutive games as well. And there's phil kessel. I don't know that i've ever asked you this. What are your thoughts on. Phil kessel one more year under contract right. Yup signing bonus five million. So what's the actual cash. One point eight. They're going to see if anyone wants to go for that. You know the story. I was trying to get going around trade deadline as a talking point back to the. That's right i remember that. Oh my god cutting town. I thought i thought you would enjoy that. But that's the thing. Like i wanted like arizona needs picks and prospects right. Oh that's what thereafter give me first rounders. Gimme prospects skinny kids. Yes like. I wonder if that's what they do. Well look around the nhl universe and look at your goal starved teams and look afo castle. Does he scores easy goals with that shot. And he produces every year pence lamon twenty-five thirty goals one year of castle. Just had as you say twenty goal season. What are the other questions they have about. The zoning code is going to hire an assistant general manager. That's a good question. Then ten tundra okay on that will welcome to the program. Everybody now that our little monologue is over Thirty one thoughts the podcast coaches edition featuring kirk muller presented by to gmc sierra four.

"Yeah but that takes real the end. Oh god okay. So elliott imagine. You're just walking down the street and it's a summer day and the okay soy l. I'll drop all the goofy allergies. The kickoff podcast picnic table as ready to jump pigs at no more these dumb intros merrick. First of all. Let me just say before. We get merrick's tortured ideas r- hope all the mothers on this. Podcast had a great mother's day to declare to joe who is almost partner and to staff. Of course it was my long suffering wife so that's number one number two. I have to say this. So if you listen to friday's podcast with jabs tortured allegory of someone. Leaving their wallet and keys on a picnic table. And comparing it to tom wilson. Just because you didn't understand it doesn't make it not good. I understood it was stupid. I happen to be watching some kids. Show with my son max the other day. And there's a guy who leaves his lunch on a picnic table and goes to look at something in the forest and his lunch. Kit stole us of. I love the myself. Yeah i cannot believe on all days. I see this. It's the same day as jeff's tortured analogy unbelievable. It's brilliant. that's universe. Reminding you how smart it was. Do you not understand what that was elliott. That was a universe saying. Hey you need to pay attention to what jeff is saying. there's a lesson in their. The universe was trying to teach you whether you choose to receive it or not. I suppose is your own business but that was universe. Happy you on the shoulder. The least you could do is turn around and say. Am i supposed to learn something here. It's like matter antimatter. there's no energy created. it's all one way or the other. It's the law of white conservation of mass. Yes so you came up with a stupid idea and youtube. My son was watching. Came up with a good one. All right let's go lots of coaching stuff. Talk again as i've told you before elliott at agree with you. If you're right now coming up on the podcasts that are you gonna talk to kirk muller And appropriately enough. We are talking to a coach on a day where this podcast is going to revolve a lot around coaches. And we'll talk about coach signings. We'll talk about coaches parting. Ways with their teams as record this on sunday afternoon Two coaches are no longer with their. Nhl clubs the hunt is on for replacements and the hunt is on for both of them to find new places of employment We'll start with the columbus blue jackets. And after six seasons there is a parting of the ways between john tortorella and the cbj as as they're called. I don't say that this was predictable. But many looked at this season how it was going the lack of contract extension after the season and said this is probably just resolve itself at the end of the season when john tyrrell out no longer being around nationwide arena. What happened here. i think you say right. It was predictable. Even if you don't wanna use the exact word or phrase. It was predictable. I think we all knew this was coming. I don't think that anyone needed to say hey. We need to fire. You don't need to be any kind of long conversation. Everybody knew what was going on here. What was coming down here. And i really like that. In his last game for example he pulled the video coach out of his no regular viewing area and said. Why don't you come and change the defense pairs for a period. I thought that was a really nice thing to do. The key thing here. I wondered tortorella will be sixty three in june. Does he wanna coach in his ear. Retiring and i think the answer is bleep. No i want to coach. I think he does want to coach. I think he's gonna make that very clear to me. One of the most interesting conversations is gonna come out of this year is already the reports are out and i believe their true arizona's going to try to go young so a coach like tortorella. Who's in his age range. We interviewed bob hartley last week. He's sixty tortorella will be sixty three. I don't know of age. Just is the right word. I don't know if this is ageism. Because i'm not sure it's actual specific anti age prejudice or it's simply a conversation about. Do you need younger people to relate to younger players but i do think that especially the rebuilding teams are going to look at younger coaches. The other thing too. I'm really curious about here is going to be salary. We've talked about this. There's a big conversation being held about. How much coaches and executives make rod. Brind'amour's has an extension on the table. That we believe is verbally agreed to its a three year extension at one point. Eight million dollars per season it is well below market value. He could do at least double that if he wanted to. On the open market he doesn't want to leave carolina and the hurricanes know that. Now what's going to happen here. Is you're going to see some team say well. Hey brindamour makes this. So how can you get more than him. While you know people are going to say look like his situations unique. He's not leaving there. He's not using his leverage. However i think for a lot of coaches here there's going to be a conversation about. Are you willing to work for less than you've worked before. I think some teams are going to squeeze it tight and i think a lot of these coaches who've been used to the two three million dollar salaries they're going to have to look at it and say okay. How do we feel about that. The way that. I look at brindamour and coming in under market. I think we've talked about this before when you look at your career. Do you look at it year to year or do you look at the entirety of it. Like do you look at it and you say you know only a couple of years out. This is how much money i want to make or dsa. Here's how much i wanna make in two thousand years. Because if i'm rod brindamour where it might look like a haircut and feel like a haircut are coming in under market value which he is. I look at the brindamour situation. I say he's coaching really good young team. It's a team. That's going to be good for a lotta years and can probably be released successful and probably win at least at least one stanley cup and then once you have that on your resume all of a sudden your ticket changes so look at brind'amour's situation i say this is an example of a guy at least to me elliott who's trying to play the long game here And if you're playing the long game you wanna be on a winner because once you're involved with a winning organization once you're a winning coach. You're a winning coach when it comes to being hired all of a sudden bringing this guy. He's a proven winner. And that's where you get paid like to me. It's if you look at your career as a ladder on which wronged you really try to monetize the most. And if i'm rod brind'amour's i say to myself here okay. I know that my owner doesn't wanna pay me what i'm worth on the open market but there is value in me staying here because this can lead to a bigger paycheck somewhere down the road. I don't believe that. In this case. I think this is simply a person who does not want to leave that area of the of the league. I had a really long conversation with another coach about this yesterday. And we were talking about the Responsibility versus personal happiness. Question the end this coach. And i were talking about brind'amour's happy and what's the old line don't bleep with happy. Yeah and if a person's situation says i want to be here and i don't wanna leave here. Nobody has a right to complain about that. I support brind'amour's decision. If this gets done and i think most people believe it's going to get done but still i believe. His staff is fighting for their contracts to. I think that's the we've talked about this. It's the last conversation here. Nobody a right to tell somebody else. They should do something that isn't best for their family or might make them unhappy. I understand the whole position about well. You know like you've got to do what's best you know..
Judge Orders Release of DOJ Memo Justifying Not Prosecuting Trump
"Judge in dc ordered the justice department to release a document that they've been trying to keep secret for years. Now it's the document. The justice department drew up to justify not bringing criminal charges against then president donald trump for obstruction of justice. Judge amy berman jackson and her blistering ruling this week said that trump attorney general bill barr and other trump justice department officials had essentially lied to the public and lied to the court about bars decision. That trump wouldn't be prosecuted despite the muller investigation laying out more than ten potentially criminal instances in which the president acted to obstruct the investigation into russia. Interfering in the two thousand sixteen election to help trump win the presidency of the justice department is under very very very new management. It's going to be interesting to see if the justice department. Now under attorney-general merrick garland follows judge jackson's ruling and releases document about not prosecuting trump. Or will they appeal to continue the trump justice department's efforts to keep that documents secret. The clock is ticking. On that we've been watching this every day. Now because they've got less than two weeks to either file that appeal or let that document see the light of day and in either case it's to be a really big deal. If we do see that document and as the judge hinted in her ruling it turns out that bar and the trump justice department never substantively considered the evidence evidence against trump if it turns out the evidence that trump committed obstruction was just ignored. Well that puts a very hot potato. In the lap of the new justice department leadership under president biden as to whether they might pursue those charges against trump nail
MINEBRIDGE RAT Embedded to Look Like Job Resumes.
"Now we have been tracking this muller family for past couple of years And what was interesting in. This case was It was leveraging resume. Our jobs also related to couple other campaigns that we saw in some of the tdp's tactics techniques and procedures that the tractor used in this campaign matched what we saw early last year as well. Well let's dig into the research together here You start off with some thread attribution. Who do you think is likely behind this. So based on some of the techniques that we saw here we are attributing this with a moderate confidence to threat actor file fi which is a financially motivated threat group. That has been active since At least twenty fourteen. I now attribution is a you know. It's a difficult game because you know it's very easy to see overlap in infrastructure across different actors as well based on some of the things that we absurd. Are we feel like it's deify. Well let's walk through the attack flow together. How does someone find themselves Falling victim to this so if you look at the attached in it starts with a job resume document so it's a macro document that will prompt the victim to enable content which is to run the metro out if the victim falls for that back it up a pdf and show. The actual. i would say decoy profile of someone who's trying to apply for the job But in the back end what happens is The macro code will leverage Windows finger dot. Ese it's a legitimate program to download malicious content from the attacker control infrastructure.
Matt Gaetz: Why Is He Being Investigated?
"Lots talk right now about florida. Representative matt gaetz. Why what is going on with matt. Gaetz matt gaetz seems to be in a lot of legal trouble is what's going on tonight. Florida congressman matt gates is defending himself amid reports. The justice department is investigating is alleged relationship with a seventeen year old girl. Investigators looking into the alleged relationship from two years ago whether gates possibly violated sex trafficking laws when he allegedly paid for travel and other expenses for the team all things. The republican strongly denies it as a horrible allegation and it is a lie. He's being investigated for payments. He may have allegedly made to women in exchange for sex in one case a woman who was under each seventeen years old in one sense. This is a pretty classic political sex scandal but the real reason it seems to have struck such a chord is that gates was one of the most bold outspoken defenders of former president donald trump who was of course plagued by scandal throughout his term in office gates was always there to say. Oh president trump was just being persecuted by the deep state. When robert muller leaves capitol hill. I think the american people will see that there was no collusion and there was oceans of bias and it turns out that the justice department has some questions for representative gates as well before we get into this sordid saga. We should just flag. That matt gaetz has not been charged with anything by anyone relating to the sex scandal correct. That's correct so. This is all stemming from a report initially in the new york times that gates was under investigation for perhaps having sex with a seventeen year old and for the payments to
Carl Zimmer on Defining Life
"Carl. Zimmer joins us now. He is a columnist for the new york times and he is the author of many books. He was last on the podcast for his book. She has her mother's laugh. His new book is called. Life's edge the search for what it means to be alive. Carl thanks for being here. Thanks for having me all right so right now. You're kinda busy. You've been reporting on corona virus for the times. What is that leg. It's kind of overwhelming You know i am kind of startled that you know the whole world wants to read what we at. The scientists have to write about. You know this virus. But i will remember this experience of the past year for the rest of my life really. It's been exceptional as a as a moment in science journalism as a science journalist. Is this an area that you had been looking at for years and years. Were you especially interested in epidemiology or was this sort of switching gears for you. I've had a obsession with viruses for a long time. I'm actually wrote a book called the planet of viruses a few years ago. So you know. I've reported on ebola and influenza over the years of have done the virus thing. And so you know i i felt like well i can bring my experience to bear on this and and so basically it just started doing the same kind of reporting about this virus but now of course this is a virus that was causing a kind of pandemic that we have not seen for one hundred years. You're not the only journalist covering this pandemic obviously not even the only journalists covering this pandemic on the scientists at the times. How do you all kind of divide it up. Do you have an area in particular that you are looking at specifically yet. None of us can do this alone absolutely and we have to really roll with the punches. You know i was focusing a lot on vaccines for example in the fall overseeing our tracker and then we started to to see these variants were popping up. Then we're of serious concern so i basically had to carve out some time to work on variants but mental really. My colleague has also been writing about various. Like crazy and ben muller and we actually have several people who who just try to keep up with the variants. You know and and there are other people who are handling the store. All the stories of vaccine distribution geopolitics and long cova. There be other people handling that. It's it's such an enormous story. What about it most interest you personally. Well i'm most interested in in The pandemic ending besides that that and not being sick. Yes yeah is unsettling jim how this pandemic has played out exactly. As scientists had warned it would
Apple positioned to offer cryptocurrencies: RBC report
"Rbc's got a new guy following up all and he is coming on strange apples. Three dot over and part of a note from abc analyst. Mitch steve's taking over the apple beat from robert muller. According to steve's note fundamentals apple remained secure with cash flowing business related to iphones peripherals computers and services. But what he really likes is the money. Apple could make in cryptocurrency not mining not buying but using apple wallet to let its installed base of one point five billion devices and the people who use them into the game the way the analyst sees it if apple decides to enter into the crypto currency exchange business multibillion dollar in we think the firm could immediately gain market share and disrupt the industry while simultaneously making the usa a leader in crypto for the next ten to twenty years if only two hundred million of those one point five billion got into crypto currency steve stingers that potential revenue opportunity would be an excess of forty billion dollars a year
Who is the international community?
"Myanmar's progress towards democracy. During the two thousand and ten with nobel peace laureate aung sang suu as de facto head of government was widely understood as a good news. Story this week myanmar's military. The top madore decided that the democratic experiment had proceeded far enough claiming fraud in the most recent they threw a coup. D'etat seized power. Back and returned san suu now. Tarnished as an accessory to the tottenham does own recent accesses to detention the international community has responded predictably and in famous correctly demanding respect for the election results the restoration of constitutional order and so forth. Also this week. Us president joe biden in his first speech on foreign policy since taking office declared that america was ready willing and able to resume its traditional self awarded role as lead of that international community. But at this point what actually is the international community who decides what it thinks and are there really any penalties for defying or ignoring it. This is the foreign desk. But you're now seeing two sets of institutions governing although it's questionable how much actual authority the people without guns have to force their parliamentary decisions. At this point. The burmese military should relinquish power. They have seized release the advocates and activists and officials they have detained suspected. Criticism from western countries has relatively little direct. But it's not that they don't care at all it's noteworthy that they've gone to just extraordinary lengths to create alibis covers for the coup the very few occasions when you say that sanctions all the threat of sanctions hadn't affect i think would be the ending of the apartheid period south africa but they require cooperation and agreement among any state that has major economic relations with a particular state that is really under threat of sanctions. So that's pretty rare frontier. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew muller joined first of all by amen taunt a reporter based in yang-gon well first of all let's try and make sense of what has been occurring this week. How did the first hours of the coup ataur unfold as you experienced it. Was there a heightened military presence in the streets was a news broadcast social media alerts. How do they establish power. It's not like they lack practice this by now. Sure so the first couple hours were extremely chaotic. One was quite sure what was happening. Although most people had figured out that there was a coup so basically most people woke up on monday not being able to use their phones so there are some cards. Weren't giving them service. There was some rewards that depending on which company you are with. You have some level of service depending on where you are in the country. You had some notable service. But for me i couldn't call out and i didn't have any mobile data. Luckily i have wifi at home. Which is not true for a lot of people but yeah in the first few hours in django that weren't really military much of a military presence as far as i understand. Although in the days leading up to the coup there were some quite frightening pictures of tanks in yanko near military installations and what has gone. Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were. Previously people are largely ignoring the rules at this point in the pandemic here. But yeah like you just saw a lot of groups of people as opposed to the person who cooks which is generally a woman here but a couple hours in so maybe around nine. Ten people started panic buying especially rice. A lot of rice shops ran out of rice quite early in the morning. You know they generally never run out that bryce they usually are quite. we'll start but by the evenings. The supply chain was flowing again and had sort of compensated and the streets emptied out after a while but there was a while where people were trying to rush the banks. All the banks shut the atm set down. And then people try to. The gold shops and the gold shops started shutting down this
James Comey and Truth in Government
"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his byline primary colors And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I

Attorney General William Barr resigns
"Attorney. General bill barr is formally resigned. He leaves office next week. A move that shows. How far differed from so many republican veterans in washington who did find themselves ultimately fire by tweet in the trump era sources around bar have been leaking his departure plans for weeks. They're now trying to cast some kind of independent figure who left clashing with trump over issues like voter fraud and keeping that newly revealed hunter biden probe secret before the election. Now let me tell you having covered this throughout the whole period of the trump. doj this is classic bar. It's not unlike the gap between bars letter that offer a muller book report and the actual report which is one of the many misleading and political acts that led so many. Doj veterans across both parties. Demand bar resign long before he did this week. And in addition to that meddling in the mueller probe you had meddling in cases regarding trump allies while bars own resignation letter doubles down on this problem. He falsely described tump trump. doj's own russia probe as an effort to cripple or oust the trump administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion. He adds his salute to trump's quote unprecedented achievements for the american people joined now by a former federal prosecutor who has been a keen observer of the bar justice department. John flannery council. Good to see you good to see you days. Well we have the recency effect. Every lawyer knows it in trial you want to leave the jury with that last thought in their mind and it's probably going to be more effective than what you talked about on the first day. Right bar is nothing. If not an effective at times canny lawyer he leaves pointing and sources pointing to his clashes with donald trump. Do you think that's the way to remember him or was it a lot more of that earlier loyalty loyalty. I don't think is the key word for him. I think the words for him is that he's always believed does a federalist and somewhat of a christian cult this that the people really don't know what's best for them and so he really does believe in a monarchical government although it's striking to read his december fourteenth letter of resignation which reads a little bit like a hostage letter. I mean he's talking about how great this guy was abused them in the end because perhaps he couldn't go as far in their bromance in crime as trump was prepared to go. And like you said there's a whole series of things this man has done right after. He assured america he was going to be a great attorney general. Well he's probably the most erupt act of armor attorney general's throughout the history of the united states. That's his mark that's his legacy and he did it because he was not a law enforcement officer he was about his or trump. He did what trump needed to do for that policy. Which i suggest which. I think the embrace which is A government by fiat. I don't have to listen to you. Even congress Supported trump usurping usurping. The court Analyzing and investigating the investigations. That he then misrepresented as you. I said in. The mueller investigation. He has been every place. And i'm among those those thousands of prosecutors who said he should resign while he has belatedly but not for the reasons we said. He's he's obviously said something else but as he's going out the door. He was compromising those convictions. He was compromising are free and fair elections by these bogus statements he made about. We've found this fraud and somewhere along the line. it seems like there must have been an intervention. Somebody maybe a good criminal defense lawyer or someone who's concerned about ethics by which he could retain his bar license said. You have any idea what you're doing. Do you wanna be standing next to this guy. When he's flying to florida on the day of the inauguration or whatever crazy thing he does between now and january fifth or january six or january twentieth and trump He trump inhales the souls of people and guess them to do things that are their worst possible performances. And he's done that with bar. I don't know where bhargava would you like to have his resume he he. He came to this job because he was going to burnish his reputation and his re what could be his retirement years. Well now he's retired and he's done a lot of time in ford at hearings judicial proceedings. That had nothing to do with him. Running the show
Beijing lists grievances against Australia, giving warning to other countries with tense China relations
"Relations between beijing and canberra deteriorating. Awhile have created spectacularly in recent months. Australia has excluded while away from australia's five g network. Australia has cold for an international investigation into the origins of the covid nineteen pandemic. It's spoken up in support of hong kong and protested against china's treatment of its wiegand minority and china has bristled at all of these moves. Some of china's responses have been merely rhetorical and calls medic including crudely goading australia. You've alleged crimes committed by string. Troops in afghanistan others had more measurable effects. Devastating tariffs on australian exports to china including especially ruinous levies on australian. Wine has china decided to full out with australia. How should australia or any other country. China has a popat react or adjust. And is there any way back to cooperation with china for australia or anyone else. This is the foreign desk. My advice to punish morrison repeatedly has do more say lis- do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing national security pows enhancing now fundamental economic cow enhancing population growth and strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries around the world. Or just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well so this kind of patriotism and chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of covid domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its cover up and handling. I'm so getting the country tonight. This way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be spending so it's really two birds. One stone the chinese government should be totally a shined of this past. It diminishes them in the world is hello and welcome to the foreign. I'm andrew muller. China is not a nation known for its impulsively where foreign policy is concerned but using tends to act carefully and deliberately so it should be assumed that it is acting carefully and deliberately towards australia for a look at what china is doing and why china is doing. It joined first of all from beijing by sophia yan china correspondent for the daily telegraph severe festival. I think what we're trying to establish here is whether this is a specific row between china and australia or something. We might see more of in china's dealings with western democracies in general but we will start with stralia. Does it strike you. That china is going out of. Its way to pick a fight with australia. Or is this something. That's just kind of happened. Organically absolutely china's definitely targeting australia. It's been going for some time and it's obviously hit a peak. Now it's every day. There seems to be something new in the sputtered. Diplomatic spat between beijing and camera. And what beijing's really trying to do is to make australia of retail. Australia is a major. Us ally part of the five. The lions and australia matches on values with america. So hunting. Australia is a way for china to send a message to other. Us allies or the country's just thinking about siding with washington and to try to prevent them from considering policies that china dislikes bans on chinese tech firms over national security risks while we issue for instance even territorial disputes in the south china sea being public about stances over hong kong and taiwan china does not want countries to get involved with what it thinks is its own backyard so pressuring australia. This way is just one way to show. Hey this is what can happen to your country if you dare to take on. There's an upside to this too. It's certain swagger for the domestic audience to show that this all powerful country china can finally stand up to the west. You have to remember that. For the chinese government and for many chinese people there is a very painful history and memory of what's called the quit century accumulation. That was the hundred years before the communist party took power in nineteen forty nine during which many say the glorious chinese empire crumbled at the hands of foreign powers. The brits the russians japanese china at the time lost almost all the wars fought. And actually that's when hong kong was ceded to the brits so this kind of patriotism in chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of cova kovic domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its botch cover up in handling and still getting the country two nights in this way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be sending so it's really two birds. One stone does a number of things going on there but let's just focus on one of them because it is a proximate cause of china's irritation with australia and indeed china's irritation with a few other countries. Which is far away and other chinese companies being locked out of five g networks. Why does china perceive that as an argument worth starting because it's not imaginable that any of these countries are going to change their minds. Way is in a way national champion. It's a private company. It's not state owned. But of course any company that succeeds in china is in some ways states approved so to succeed here. You definitely need to have certain. Party officials Tests the quench relationships and people in high positions in your corner and so while we the company that really shows and reflects the rise of china. It's headquartered in shenzhen which just two three decades ago with a rice patty backwater. Now it's silicon valley hub of china and this company itself really does show how quickly the economy here has grown china now. The world's second largest economy in china trauma very broad level wants to be taken seriously on the world stage and so attacking hallway company. That many would consider really national. Champion is attacking the status. That china now thinks it should have on the world stage so it's ironic also that there's concern from beijing. That other nations are talking about who as a national security risk because china itself has long said that it wants to keep certain industries telecoms utilities oil and gas within its own country at state-owned enterprises. Because they themselves. Beijing is concerned about the very same issue that foreign players could come into the country. Take a big share of the market and therefore be competitive domestically. They didn't want to see control here to foreign companies over the issue of national security. So it's actually a bit ironic for china to now be upset with other nations for saying that a chinese company coming in to build critical national infrastructure. Whether that's a nuclear plant or the telecoms network but then to say hey. You can't say that this is a risk. We don't pose a risk. it's it's it's it's. It's not very fairly for china to be saying that other nations

Dr Moore's Obituary mentions the son Bruno. Oh He's a retired computer systems consultant. He agreed to talk but didn't WanNa be recorded when asked about his mother's life during the war he tells me all he has has our snippets. The Past Bruno tells me didn't come up much as dinner. Conversation given his mother's feelings about the past it makes sense would he does know is this. She was born Anna Corolla Cooper and she was an athlete. She played tennis competitively and was a strong enough swimmer swimmer to attempt an escape during the allied invasion by swimming across the Rhine as she swam Bruno says snipers from the other side fired. Her Her Brennan tells me grandfather was the doctor who was eventually captured by the Russians and sent to a Soviet prison camp. These camps were notoriously brutal with hundreds of thousands of German captives dying from violence malnutrition or forced labor for years. Dr Muller didn't know whether her father author was alive or dead on the day of an allied bombing campaign that would devastate hometown. Doctor Family didn't have time to make it to the local bomb shelter. Turn which was fortunate because it was destroyed instead. The family hid in the garden. Shed which turned out to be the only part of the House that survived if the devastation. The bombing wasn't supposed to hit them. That hard annika is journalist who lives near Ephron were Dr Mueller grew up. They were actually aiming at the harbor in Cologne but they had the order not to return with all the weapons. Like get rid of all your your bombs before you get back home. Don't go round flying with all the bombs but just drop them somewhere and so unfortunately they were dropped on F oven. I commissioned Annika to find out anything she could about the Mueller's so she'd wandered the streets of Efren looking for traces of the family but most of the people who lived in Efren during the war are now gone. I ask if she was able to find out anything about Dr Mueller's father anything that might elaborate on his capture by the Russians. What I did come across and that kind of struck me was that he was a Nazi doctors? Union at the time so the doctors in this union their job was it to tell people From a medical perspective why one race would be superior to another now the race. eugenics exactly the mission of the National Social Esteban as the union was called was to make sure doctors were aligned with the Nazi spirit. We can't know for certain that Dr Mueller's father was enforced to join. But we do know that by the end of the war half of the ninety thousand doctors and Germany. Germany were not members of the astro went in other words. You didn't have to be in the union to practice medicine on top of that. There's this he wasn't just a member but he is listed as like the Kaiser Onsite which okay how do I translate. The rough translation is that Dr Mueller's father was an upper level manager in the Nazi physicians. League he oversaw district of two million people while it's impossible to know is private intentions and beliefs given the prestige of his position. It's unlikely he was a secret hero of the resistance. It's a leader of his rank let alone a medical leader would at the very least been aware of the systematic sterilization an and execution of those deemed undesirable among them. The so called mentally. Ill know under Dr Mueller might have felt compelled to leave the past asked where it was. What are your recollections of Herbert? And his wife no good people. I'm proud to know. I'm glad to be their friend once again again. I find myself speaking to a German psychiatrist and Montreal. His name is Dr Gert Morgenstern. And he was close to Dr Mueller and her husband Herbert both friends and colleagues. They would gather at Dr Morgan Stearns home in a quiet neighborhood in Montreal were Dr Mueller's husband. Herbert and he played music together. Herbert on the flu Dr Morgenstern on the Piano Dr Mueller would wander in and out listening to them play. She spent many hours in Dr Morgan Stearns Home Dr Morgenstern San Mark explained at the beginning of the conversation that his father might not have much to offer in recent years. His memory has begun onto falter and much of Dr Morgan's past has become loss to him. But since this might be the only chance I get to talk to someone who actually knew Dr Mueller who who can speak to her as a friend. We decided to give it a try. I asked Dr Morgenstern. If he remembers spending time with the Mueller's yes I think so. It was pleasant. We look forward to it. Mark says has his father's memory fails he's held onto the happy memories and allowed a lot out of the painful ones to go like the Mueller's Dr Morgenstern was a German who emigrated to Canada. But unlike the Mueller's he was a Jew he fled. Let Germany in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven a year before Kristallnacht. You both immigrated from Germany. was that a subject that came up. I don't remember life during the war. I don't remember any of that so she never talked with you about what she went through during the war. Not that I remember and we talked about was what we were doing and what we were planning to do. Dr Morgenstern says they never talked about the past that they didn't talk about their religions. Then even talk about psychology and they never discussed Germany. Mark says that after fleeing his father never spoken a word of German again so if they didn't talk about the past what did they do together make music and talk and what. What did you like to talk about wrote the music? We were playing because he was a fellow therapist as well as her friend. I asked him what he knows about. Dr After Mueller's practice her approach throughout our conversation. Dr Morgenstern Answers are brief a few words at most but when I asked him about Dr Dr Mueller's insistence on self birth and whether it was an idea that she tailored to my situation or some obscure therapeutic method Dr Morgenstern grows animated. Did she wasn't it wasn't doing a method. She invented what she said. It's a continual process had an attitude toward life in other words. You're you're actively producing your future in your present. You are decisions to make the have memories to select act and you're building your future. That way never actually finished giving berthier. So it Ed Never Completed Act. Well I take in my inability to give birth to myself as the failing of either myself for Dr Mueller. He wasn't really. Maybe Dr Mueller telling me over and over that birth was imminent was her way of saying there is no end point. It's just living and that's the point..

"Toward the end of Neal's therapy doctor. Mueller was diagnosed with cancer. It made her weak and in the last year she would disappear during their sessions for long stretches in the bathroom. The last it's time I saw her she. She shook my hand goodbye. I was very brave. Gracious dignified thing. The way she did it she said. Good luck I mean. She meant that she was like saying. Good luck with all of you. All of you kneel just good luck and she looked me in the eye and anyway so she shook my hand and forever's Lake burnt into my brain about a year after Neil stopped singer at the age of seventy seven. Dr Mueller died of cancer As with me Dr Muehler wasn't very interested in learning about Neal's past but unlike me from time to Time Neil did learn something about hers Bruce particularly towards the end as the bigger issues in his therapy receded and a sort of friendship emerged. They just talked sometimes a better better family life back in Germany. I think they were fairly wealthy. I think of right professional wealthy family. Her father was a doctor. They had a beautiful home. Tom Many stories and then The Nazis came and they absconded. They're in their home and used it for headquarters and her bitterness about the war. Is that as a German. She was regarded as the enemy. So I think that kind of smarted. She constantly constantly talked about Jews not the only victims and it was confusing her for her to work with Jews. I think she'd never said that. But I I think that you know his a lot of Jewish people in Montreal and the attitude toward sermon so I think that had to play back on her own wounds because she exposed her ones and I think I always thought that her we were. Also we're a part of her therapy.

That he is I stay up late twelve drinking beer and watching old movies. It's wild watching at close range. A Sean Penn.. Christopher Walken DOC and film from the nineteen eighties that I realize I'd already seen it in a college class. And with this recollection I remember the professor who taught the class and the one time I'd seen him outside of his classroom. It was in Dr Mueller's waiting room. I'd seen him exiting in her office or at least I think I had. The moment was long ago so fleeting but if true this memory had the power to tear open the potential wormhole connecting me to my past as a kid in therapy for the first time I had no perspective on Dr Mueller but here was was a full fledged adult patient of hers. A professor no less. Who'd have the experience and insight to cast the decisive vote in the? Was it me. Or was it Mueller referendum. Was She just weirdly. Hung up on this notion of self birth or was I just too young to get it with the movie paused in the background. I pace the floor of my living room. A plan begins to take shape. All I have to do is break all the rules of therapy of polite light society and track down a now elderly professor who taught at a school I dropped out of to inquire fitted been him. I'd seen exiting my therapist's office thirty years ago. Yes I agree nodding my head to no one in particular three beers into a six pack of tall boys at two in the morning morning.

"He's. The Guy said we had no shift in this one jiffy swallow where the worst but the the both of them said that they we had evidence that donald trump conspired with the Russians both of them said that to their I mean the the idea that there's no punishment for that. We start doing a bit on the show at the end of shows we could start calling their offices and ask him for the evidence there another this is all over. Can I see that <hes> <hes> that evidence yeah no but then they once they're called on it and once the thing came out I mean I remember Swale was on a Bill Maher. Show it was right before it was when it was like the night that Muller announced the the investigation was wrapping up and that there would be no further indictments and if you remember if you can put yourself back in that time space two days earlier. Maybe the former head of the C._I._A.. John Brennan Annan guilty of treason arming al-Qaeda. He said there were GonNa be more indictments that you were going to see Don Jr. go to jail. You'RE GONNA see trump's family. Get indicted. You're gonNA see trump indicted. They were so everybody so when it came out that there were no further indictments you hadn't hadn't yet heard you know no collusion or conspiracy or any of that but it was like Oh wait what this already doesn't sound right and so and Bill Maher said something like you know swallow who is one of the guys who was like saying we we we have the evidence of this he said did we put too much faith in Muller like what what do you mean no more indictments. I thought all of trump's family and I thought they were all going down and swallow goes well I. I don't need indictments to know what I've seen seen in plain sight. I've seen you know I all you need is a twitter account to know there was collusion and he falls right back onto this just bullshit talking point and it's like Oh okay I can see how much the public like that guy for. How long is presidential campaign last yeah he already? I had to drop out there is still seventy five people running for the Democratic nomination and he already had to bow. Here's the first one to drop right. I believe so I don't know I think so I think like when Marianne Williamson is still in there and her fucking budget plan John is more crystals in the White House. That's a you know you did a bad job and I'm not even familiar with that. She's like the new age hustling power crystals that give you strength. I don't know if they put them in the White House. They make better decisions. I'll honest is probably a better budget than the one that <hes> just past might not so I can't I I'm not completely against it. Bring better fives the White House with ice crystals hoops. I'll be honest. I'm almost sold. She almost has if tolsey drops out she might be. The Democrat uh-huh yeah woohoo crystal girl doesn't seem to have much of an opinion on war but <hes> you know she's better than the rest all right. I think we can leave the episode there. I wanted to come in to talk about this. This seem to me to be you know I. I know we've talked about this story a lot not <hes> but I think it's justified. I I really think this is like one of the biggest historical events that I've lived through in my life. I think almost like up there with nine. Eleven eleven the war in Iraq like just the big shit that I've lived through my life even Clinton being impeached. I mean Clinton being impeach was nothing compared to this. This was a clear attempted coup by deep upstate unelected bureaucrats and spies to get rid of a guy to unseat a duly elected president because quite simply..

"To that ladder with another hand as you fly through the skies of New York City the last thing the last thing they're hanging onto hanging onto desperately desperately was that Donald Trump did commit obstruction of justice now. I know I know we've been telling you he's a Russian puppet and he colluded with the Russians and none of that's true however into the investigation that he was innocent of she obstructed Justice Pastas and even though Muller didn't say he obstructed justice he did kind of say well. Here's ten instances where he might have and the only reason why he didn't conclude that trump obstructed justice was because there's this department his Justice Department legal opinion that says you can't charge a sitting president with the crime so <hes> you know he could be charged as soon as he leaves the White House and and this is where they get to the stuff where if you wasn't president didn't he'd be charged with obstruction of justice now as I pointed out on the show before this number one this is just really stupid because the idea that if trump wasn't president he could be charged with obstruction of justice like well if you weren't president and you fired the F._B._I.. B._I. Director what does that even mean. Only the president can fire the F._B._I.. Director so well if you weren't president but you thought about firing the special counsel what if so if I just fired a special counsel. I can't nobody except the president can do Ooh that's even to even put it into the context of not being president was stupid. However this was a death blow to that whole this was cutting the ladder and now you're falling with that little girl in your arms down into times square or or the Hudson River below you Muller said No? That's actually not right. He said he said that we said we couldn't come to a conclusion on whether or not to charge him with obstruction of justice and that is that's it. That's the end of it so in other words he wasn't being charged with obstruction of justice now. Everybody should have known this already because the even by the Department of Justice guideline that says you can't charge a sitting president which I find hard to believe that they would actually enforce it by the way that's not law. It's just something that the Legal Opinion Office of the Justice Department kind of came up with because are you telling me that if Donald Trump if they had uncovered evidence that he was a Russian puppet we'd still go. Well got to beat them at the ballot. Box can't charge present. You know what I mean. That seems crazy to me. However the the anyone should have known this because even though the guidelines says you can't charge a sitting president that doesn't mean that Muller couldn't right in his report he obstructed justice but we can't charge him because of this guideline he could have written that he could have said that also another pretty big blow to the obstruction of justice nonsense is that if Donald Trump had been guilty of obstructing justice? It's not like Donald Trump himself self would have physically obstructed justice right like even if Donald trump with he would have had people around him do it in which case you would have seen indictments of other people for obstruction of justice right so the fact that there were no other indictments of obstruction of justice. There were no indictments about a conspiracy with the Russians that is as that is in effect in exoneration on both counts by the way that word came up during the hearings that was so creepy when he's when when Muller went out of his way to point out that he couldn't exonerate Donald Trump and then one of the Congressmen to is credited jump on that and go exonerate like what the hell are you talking about. Prosecutors hitters don't exonerate people that is well outside the purview of a prosecutor. I don't even know who does exonerate people. MAYBE PRIESTS I. I don't know who can exonerate somebody. I suppose a defense attorney if they come up with D._N._A...

"He seemed to not know who Corey Lewandowski was at one point has it wasn't following what was going on seemed to have no command over his own report so that's a bad scenario and then the other scenario that you're saying that he's playing this up is actually even worse in terms of as a reflection of muller and those are as far as I can see the only two options that are there. You know this is really him or he's pretending this is him either one really bad and there's something about that that in itself is revealing no matter which one of those two scenarios it is like I remember you know and because I kind of you know I've done a you know these Cable News Gigs and I've talked to a lot of people. This is the thing when you the panels it's always different panels that you would you meet a lot of different people who are in the mainstream media world and I've. I can't tell you how many of them used to say like they'd Speak Week of these men with such reverence like the it was combing for a long time a whole bunch of people. It'd be like whatever you say about Komi. This is a man of the utmost integrity P. completely professional really trustworthy and and then when you actually start to see him he gets introduced to the nation. He's like this guy is the slimy EST shadiest guy you could imagine who's just trying to sell a book and get more face time on TV. Who is acting in this outrageously unprofessional? All manner leaking things intentionally to score political points and like you guys are the same with Muller Muller is just the this guy. Is You know border line American hero could nobody couldn't could question his integrity and then you actually see the guy and you're like wow well. He's either one of two things in old incompetent man or a complete fraud. There's just no getting around. Those are the only two options after watching today's hearings. There's Ah let me know if you see a third option in there. I don't see one that is all that is all that could possibly be from my from what my brain can think up man's a fraud. He got busted running some phony investigation allegation for two years on behalf of the deep state and the F._B._i.. Well that's right got pulled into a congressional hearing. He's got an answer for the fact that it was fabricated evidence that very early on he realized that the underlying collusion thing didn't exist and then the card from there was that they were just trying to get trump to come in for to actually give testimonies they catch them lying in his testimony and then even today on TV the big thing of the Democrats were how is it that he evaded coming in for testimony. It's clear an amazing and they were still saying the morality of that he wouldn't come in and give testimony and the idea that you give up on the underlying crime and still still be upset that somebody didn't come in and testify when you were going around getting getting everybody you could on Miss Remembering the truth or lying or whatever why he wouldn't WanNa go. I mean it's so the to ask the question is to answer the question itself. Why wouldn't he want to go into well of course not because he didn't commit the crime so he's got nothing and to gain and everything to lose I mean quite literally nothing to gain and everything his life and freedom to lose and and anyway there's look just for a little bit of backdrop and I wanNA try on this episode to not you know repeat things that we've said in the past although quite often I do repeat things that have been said another shows but that's just because if you ever find yourself going I think Dave already said this once? I think he's trying this well. There's that but also that it's that damn important yeah. You need to hear it again. There's my excuse probably Rob's answer was a little bit better but let's go with mine so I chain my this. Is that s display reaffirming affirming what we've just been kinda thrown out there which you could argue as quasi conspiracy conspiracy not ause..
