Trump survives impeachment: US president cleared of both charges
"That all of this is done what happens now for the trump presidency. I mean for the rest of his term. How're you expecting it to be different than and it might have been well in a way? This is like a turbo charge for president trump because he survived this gauntlet this impeachment proceeding without without having to be removed from office. And therefore he's waking up feeling emboldened and empowered and feels a conviction that everything he does is right. He is at the strongest point politically today that he's been in some time. The Gallup poll has his approval rating at forty percent which is sending shivers through the Spines of Democrats Crafts Around the country there are good feelings in the country about the economy which continues to home along to report to you tonight that our economy is the best I it has ever been. He had a pretty powerful economic message in a state of the Union. Even though a lot of it was exaggerated and he made claims that are not true. Jobs are booming. Income Poverty is plummeting. Crime is falling confidences surging. It was a selling argument. It for reelection and our country is thriving and highly respected again and so we can expect I think the president into continue to to sound teams into seek retaliation against all of those. He felt have wronged him in. It's impeachment process with this acquittal. How is that likely to change the office of the Presidency broadly? It's a good question because the evidence about trump's activity in Ukraine is. There's no dispute dispute about what he did. The evidence is clear the testimony was clear. Trump himself has admitted on camera that he wanted the Ukrainian government to do an investigation into his political political opponent and in fact he called on the Chinese government to do the same so what he did is clear what happened is the Republicans in the Senate made a political calculation about out not removing him from office for it that what he did doesn't amount to an impeachable offense and I spent some time in the last days interviewing historians and they said this is a major watershed moment in our nation's history because the way the founders set up our government setup. Our Constitution was to punish and remove presidents. Who who do exactly what? Donald Trump has been proven to have done with Ukraine. This is a system of checks and balances and what's happened is the legislative branch under Republican. Look in control in the Senate is no longer holding the president accountable they're becoming an instrument to propel his power and perpetuate his power and that's concerning to historians it's concerning to legal experts and it certainly would set a precedent. I would imagine for future presidents who will say look if trump got away with this I can get away with it too and it is just an expansion of that sort of executive power which is troubling to those who study the framers and the Constitution. Do you think I mean with a different president. You know ten years twenty years from now our future executive branches likely to think back to this moment and say I can do this. It's okay I'm not going to get in trouble. You know. They they could and we may not even have to look to future presidents for that. President trump has another ten months seven months in office. He may have another four years beyond that and there's no telling what he might try to do going forward because he's escaped accountability this time in the Russia investigation. You know the Muller Team documented did all of these examples for really proven examples where the president sought to obstruct justice but did not charge him or indict him because he's a sitting president narrow justice assists department guidelines about that. Well the very next day after Robert Mueller testified in Congress about this trump picked up the phone and called the Ukrainian president asking for the favor the political favors so he the conclusion he drew from the Muller Investigation and his lack of any legal punishment in that regard was that he can get away with with what he wants to do. He's the president if he does it so be it and the Republicans in on Capitol Hill or are there to support and protect him. So can you talk us through. How the president's President's own lawyers argued that the Senate basically doesn't have the power to to check the president one of the most striking moments in the president's defense came when one of his lawyers? Alan Dershowitz a noted criminal lawyer you've seen him on. TV for years Came to the floor of the Senate and advanced an argument that a lot of legal experts that said was dubious every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest. And mostly right your elections in the public interest. He said if the president does something that will help his reelection therefore is in the best interest of the country and if if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest. He cannot be held or rather be impeached for for that action that cannot be the kind of quid pro. Quo that results in impeachment. And so that's a blanket. Excuse use for the president to do what he did with Ukraine but obviously anything else that the president deems to be in the interest of his reelection that is an argument that Dershowitz had to kind of walk back a little bit In in some comments he made the next day and he got a lot of heat from legal scholars who said that's just a completely baloney argument argument with no constitutional grounding but it is indicative. I think of how President Trump himself views his power and views his authority as the president and commander-in-chief founder and chief. Did we see a lot of senators latching onto that argument. A few did Actually the Republican senators of course but a few parroted the Dershowitz line came as a way of defending the president and saying basically he's president he can do whatever he wants for his reelection because getting him reelected is in the best interest of our country. What about the way that? The impeachment trial played out in the Senate. The fact that there were no new documents that there were no witnesses is that likely also to set. Its own kind of precedent for or the way that impeachment is handled in the future. Certainly we've only had an impeachment trial three times in our history and so there's not really a blueprint door protocol. Offer how to go about doing this. And and the Senate leaders along with the chief justice of the Supreme Court to kind of change and adapt the rules as they went along to figure out how this would work mark and the Democrats say this was a complete sham. Trial that Mitch. McConnell designed it from the get-go to move quickly to get to a very fast acquittal to turn the page to save trump into move on with the legislative business not to delve into the details. Not To really scrutinize the evidence. The most surprising thing I think watching the Sahlin fold the last few weeks that John Bolton came forward publicly or at least in the manuscript of his book which leaked out through the media with new information right. He's a first first hand witness to what the president wanted done and Ukraine. He offered to testify before the Senate or at least indicated he would if if asked. Here's somebody who could have come forward to provide a new to account that would have provided new evidence to this case and there was no interest among the Republican majority in the Senate to hear what he had to say. I don't believe the testimony is necessary. The house else managers have a burden of proof a burden of proof to prove their case they had fallen woefully short. We now have allegations from Mr Bolton. I think they would have more credibility if the allegations came from someone else. There is no new information in my opinion based on what John Bolton has known but today in an effort to generate interest in a book have selectively released. Information that that to me doesn't go beyond what we've seen in the seventeen witnesses who've already testify only two. Republican senators voted to allow witnesses. Mitt Romney and and Susan Collins of Maine came to what extent is the Senate giving up the power that they have to oversee the president of provide any kind of check on the president. Give us a sense of the power that's been given up with the smooth you know they've they've been giving up power to this president for three years now in in part because Republicans threat the party live in fear of him. He has such an intensity of support within the Republican base and approval rating among Republicans of eighty to ninety percent and he follows these things very closely and vows to retaliate and shows that he can punish people if they betray him across him. Just ask former Senator Jeff Flake or former senator Bob corker. So there's that fear factor in the Senate and and what they've done to adapt to that is is not to stand up to him not to ever say he's wrong and in turn. They're getting some of their agenda through right. They're getting tax cuts passed. They're getting a lot of conservative. Justices installed hold onto the federal judiciary. They feel like Mitch. McConnell certainly feels like this is an opportunity to advance the conservative agenda but they just need to placate eight trump and played a trump and keep him calm but in so doing they're giving up their power of accountability. And it's certainly not the way that the framers and the founders imagined Dr our system of government working in Democracy Phil Rocker is the White House. Bureau chief for the Post. His new book written with Carol Lennox is called a very stateful genius. Donald J trump's testing of America. It's out in stores now.

Muller is expected to make a brief th- opening statement to both committees before giving them a lengthy official statement breaking with tradition though a copy of his remarks were not released to the press in advance of him speaking them more is also been warned by the department moment of Justice that quote any testimony must remain within the boundaries of the Public Report House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Muller shed ignored Justice Department attempts to stifle his testimony referring to their efforts as has quote part of a cover up because of this Democrats aren't really expecting any new bombshells but still believe his testimony will help inform the American public after all most have not read the report so hearing. The facts contained therein just might constitute a number of bombshells trump has said the report concluded there was new collusion in new obstruction but Democratic lawmakers plan to highlight at least five instances of what they say is obstruction of justice from the report Muller's team made a last minute request that Aaron zealously one of his longtime AIDS be sworn in to testify with him trump lashed out about zebra as potential role in the testimony tweeting Tuesday night that the decision was very unfair a well normally on a day like this the White House would hold some sort of press briefing.

Kremlin says Mueller report shows no evidence of Russian meddling
"That special counsel Robert Mueller's four hundred page report is not offered any credible evidence of Russian interference in the presidential election. The redacted report presented Thursday said there was no collusion between President Trump's campaign in Russian officials, but it did document Russian efforts to meddle in the vote. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry peskov told reporters Friday, there's quote, no evidence substantiated by any facts that Russia interfered in the election. It's Moscow rejects the accusations Pesca pointed out that president ladder. Putin's repeatedly rejected the accusations of interference. Because there was none. And said the report proved that the White House continues calling for house intelligence committee chair Adam Schiff to step down White House, counselor Kellyanne Conway told Fox News. She doesn't think Schiff and Democrats have much to go on following the release of the Miller report. The twenty twenty of no idea how beaten figured they could indict your impeach or frogmarched out of office. Not happening. Everybody complete clean Bill of health. And there are other things too in talking to the president. I was the first person to publicly call for Adam shifts resignation from the intelligence committee chairman several weeks ago on your network. I'm gonna double down on that not only should he resign. He should produce the evidence that he said he has he said, oh, we can't go into big detail come out evidence of collusion that somehow the special counsel couldn't find over twenty two months and thirty five million dollars of our money. I would Adam Schiff to produce. He ought to put up or shut up the way they talk about attorney are calling for his resignation. He's a law enforcement officer of this land a job today laying out a report, but it's the mullahs report. It's the mother teen working with the attorney general. Ended up. Three to seven pardon. Do we need to hear from yesterday? Harris is the MO the report, but the attorney general his mother testifying if congress to continue the charade. But this is the molar report. This was the Muller investigation. This is Muller teams. Reductions Bill bar is new to the job deputy attorney general Racine has been there from the beginning. And he stayed on for that continuity. He was confirmed by the Senate something like ninety three to seven two years ago was his may ninth letter that form the basis for what a lot of learned about Jimmy coma. Republicans are eager to push past the investigation. Democrats Muller's findings are far more serious than initially indicated they've been hesitant though to pursue impeachment. In fact, that we heard from some leading Democrats last night one of them being Adam Schiff saying he does not think impeachment is a viable avenue because they will have a hard time getting Republicans on board, they pointed to the election. So it sounds like strategy will be to investigate investigate investigate. And let. The public decide at the ballot
President, President Trump And Robert Muller discussed on The WCCO Morning News with Dave Lee
"When he heard a special counsel had been appointed President Trump cursed and said that that was the end of his presidency for hundred forty eight pages later, that's just one of the editor dotes and Robert Muller's report made public in redacted form yesterday by attorney general William bar. Bob Costantini begins. Our coverage attorney general statement based on a molar report put it out that while it was quite clear. Russia's internet research agency, affiliated with the Putin government trying to influence the campaign in favor of Donald Trump. Indeed as the report states, quote, the investigation did not identify evidence that any US person knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA's interference operation, unquote. Put another way the special counsel found. No collusion. The report itself suggests the June two thousand sixteen meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Donald Trump junior with Russians claiming to have dirt. On Hillary Clinton was one of many contexts studied under what's commonly referred to as collusion. Otherwise, quote, the Russian contacts consisted of business connections offers of assistance to the campaign invitations for candidate Trump and Putin to meet in person invitation for campaign officials and representatives of the Russian government to meet and policy positions seeking improved US Russian relations, and quote, President Trump's initial public reaction was brief during an event hosting wounded warriors here and they're having a good day. I'm having a good day to it was called, no collusion. No obstruction. The attorney general Robert Muller handed off the idea of whether the president or someone close to him tried to obstruct Justice in the Russia investigation after finding ten potential episodes. Although the deputy attorney general, and I disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law. We did not rely solely on that. In making our decision. Democrats on Capitol Hill, we'll certainly try to look at those episodes further including the firing of James Comey and some of the president's tweets urging potential witnesses to not rat on him related to the obstruction of Justice aspect of the Muller report bar offered up. This bit of empathy for President Trump. There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency. Propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks, Robert Mueller lifted up to bar and deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein to look into whether the president or someone close to him could have engaged in obstruction of Justice. They decided no among the obstruction of Justice lines of inquiry Muller mentioned in the report are the firing of James Comey attempts to influence witnesses and the president's order to White House counsel, Don Mcgann that he tell deputy AG rod Rosenstein to fire Muller Mcgann who spoke with Muller team for as much thirty hours apparently refused to do. So in an effort to save the president from an appearance of obstruction of Justice. Bob Costantini, the White House. Ten passed congress takes the reins now that the Muller report is out. Correspondent Linda Kenyon has that story the special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president and the responsibility now falls to congress to hold the president accountable for his actions. That's Representative Jerrold Nadler, the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary committee. He's. Leading one of the many investigations that will continue in the wake of the mullahs report. A report that found no collusion, but did not absolve President Trump of obstruction of Justice attorney general William bar who presented the report at a news conference was roundly criticized by many Democrats, including Nadler who said bar was far from Jack give bars words and actions suggest he has been disingenuous and misleading in saying the president is clear of wrongdoing. Nadler says redacted Mullah report is clear the President Trump committed multiple misdeeds the Mola report outlines disturbing evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction of Justice and other misconduct. Senator Richard Blumenthal. A member of the Senate Judiciary committee says the misconduct on the part of the president is stunning. But that's only part of the story. Details in this report about the Russian attack on our democracy are truly chilling also calls into question, the objectivity of the attorney general Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, one of the only Republicans to make any public comment on the release of the Malla report depicted the attorney general the special coun. Council and the deputy attorney general as beyond reproach all three of them about as close to a political as you're going to Agean you'll get strong disagreement from Adam Schiff, the chairman of the house intelligence committee. The attorney general did a great disservice to the country by misrepresenting significant parts of the Muller report. And shift says the attorney general also blast over the actions of the president of the United States. They are unquestionably dishonest unethical immoral and unpatriotic and should be condemned by every American that's why shift says the investigations will continue in his committee and several others. So the American people have the facts, and they can take those facts to the polls because impeachment. He says is unlikely do think the presence unfit for office. But unless that's a bipartisan conclusion on a payment would be doomed to failure House Judiciary committee, chairman Nadler's calling on special counsel, Robert mother to testify soon as possible and attorney general William bar will appear before both house and Senate committees the first week

Earlier this month members of Muller's team publicly decried Bill bars conclusions saying he improperly represented their findings Democrats are concerned by will now order unnecessary censoring.

Timeline: Big moments in Mueller investigation of Russian meddling in 2016 U.S. election
"House. The formal word of the end of the Muller investigation came in a one page letter to key members of congress attorney general William Barr says he's received Muller's confidential report and is now reviewing it to determine how much of it to share with lawmakers. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that the administration looks. Forward to the process taking its course before leaving Washington for moral law. Go Friday the president again called the investigation a witch hunt. There was no collusion, though is no obstruction. Everybody knows it all a big hug other reaction from correspondent, Ed O'Keefe. Mark Warner the vice chairman of the Senate intelligence committee sent out a statement saying, quote, congress and the American people deserve to judge the facts for themselves. The special counsel report must be provided to congress immediately and the attorney general should swiftly. Prepare declassified version of the report for the public nothing. Short of that will suffice correspondent Bill Rakoff has more on what's next for the Muller report in congress attorney general William bar will brief key congressional leaders on the mullahs report. But there's no guarantee that the report itself would become public. If that's the case Democrats may try to subpoena Muller to get the results Republicans though, like Senator Lindsey Graham aren't concerned about the results saying that if there was evidence of collusion, we would have known it by now and special counsel. Robert Muller's team were the only ones to investigate the Trump campaign here. CBS news legal analyst Rosenbaum, even while Muller's investigation was preceding the southern district of New York was conducting its own investigation. It however was focused on campaign finance law violations and Trump's financial schemes and not on Russian meddling. That investigation will not come to an end, even when Muller's work is concluded, and it might actually present greater legal problems for the president and his enablers, then whatever is in the Muller report one man who knows about investigations as former US attorney for the southern district of New York pre Brora he's out with a new book doing Justice. A prosecutors thoughts on crime punishment and the rule of law. Pre joins us in New York Preet, thanks for talking with us. Thanks for having. What can we expect with Russia probe? But I think you can expect an argument about what should be made public, and what should not be made public. There's a huge clamoring for whatever mother fines to make its way into the public record. At least at a minimum into the hands of congress. What do you think should happen with respect to anything relating to the president? I think it should all become public and at a minimum given to congress the president. Unlike other folks has the shield of an office of legal counsel opinion in the department of Justice that says he cannot be prosecuted as a sitting president. So I'm like everyone else. Who would be maligned in some way? It wouldn't be able to be able to be charged. It's odd the president will be able to use both as a sword and a shield the fact that you put derogatory information out of against someone who is in charge. But then at the same time say, well, you can't charge me anyway. And the second point is congress has a duty and a function to rain in the president. And you have the process of impeachment that doesn't apply to other ordinary citizens. And so for for congress to figure out how to do its job after there's been this long and detailed and thorough investigation by the special counsel's office. They need to know what that investigation yielded. What's your opinion as a prospect is a former prosecutor about whether the president can be indicted and tried as as a sitting president? I think the reasonable arguments in favor of it. I think that's less important question at this moment. I think it's a question for the future with respect to future presidencies because you can change the rules. I think after this president leaves. But the important thing is that is what the guidance. Is that exists in the department? And I believe that Robert Mueller will feel himself bound by that practice and policy and the southern district will feel itself bound by that practice and policy also and at that. So no constitutional arguments to the contrary will not carry the day you were fired by the president not long after he was inaugurated what happened. Well, you'll have to ask him not longer after he was elected. In extraordinary move. The president elect asked me to meet with him and asked me to stay on for another term, which is basically unheard of. When a new president comes in particularly president of a different party. I accepted because I love the work of the office. I know that we would have continued the independence of the office. Then he called me a few times sort of strange that I've outlined in podcast. I have stay tuned. And then you call me again in March March ninth of two thousand seventeen and given my understanding of what regulations were with the southern district of New York and the Justice department and the White House in a concern, though, not proven, but a concern that there might be some awkward question about an enforcement action or something else. I chose not to return the call which I thought was a good decision. And I don't know if they were connected or not but twenty two hours later, I and all the remaining Obama US attorneys were asked to resign. I refused because I wanted to know if that order was coming directly from the president and the next day. I was fired. Did you ever investigate? The Trump organization while you were at the southern district of New York. I'm not going to answer what I did. Or did not investigate while. I was in the office unless the public former US attorney pre Perahera on the weekend roundup. He's out with a new book doing Justice. Thanks very

Unsealed documents show FBI began investigating Cohen long before previously reported
"Against all we don't know about the Muller investigation and a subsequent Muller report. Just today. Some newly released not commitments are revealing details about the earliest stages of the investigation into this, man. Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen hundreds of pages of court documents concerning Cohen were unsealed today. It's a lot it shows Muller team started requesting search warrants just two months after Robert Muller was appointed the job and may twenty seventeen prosecutors in the FBI received permission to execute. Search warrants for Cohen's to g mail accounts and store data in his cloud account that was July August and November of twenty seventeen Muller was seeking evidence of Cohen's involvement in a number of potential crimes, including acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Violating the foreign agents registration act or Fara that first warrant specifically sought communications records documents and other files involving essential consultants LLC that's the name of the shell company that Cohen set up weeks before the two thousand sixteen election for the purpose of funneling. Hush money to stormy Daniels. Cohen was never charged with violating the foreign agents act, and it's not clear if Muller is still pursuing that particular angle, we do know that in February of twenty teen the special counsel ultimately referred quote certain aspects of the Cohen case to the Fed's New York office, otherwise known as the southern district of New York that eventually led to the FBI's April nine twenty eighteen search of Cohen's, home and office and that prompted this reaction from President Trump. Just turned that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys that man and it's disgraceful situation. It's a total which I heard it like you did I said that is really now in a whole new level of unfairness. This is the most. Bias of people. These people have the biggest conflicts of interest. I've ever see they only keep looking at us. So they find no collusion. And then they go from there, and they say, well, let's keep going and they raid an office of personal attorney early in the morning. And I think it's a disgrace to say an attack on our country sense earlier on this network of former chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary committee was asked about Trump's reaction to the Cohen search. He's always known the he is incredibly vulnerable from the that Michael Cohen has he was still at the same time writing hush money checks threat as president of the United States to reimburse Michael Cohen, the good, man.

The and and his lawyers jumped in and said, you know, what let's delay this. We wanted to lay this because he has more cooperation that he's going to do right with Muller's team which was weird because Muller's team have been putting off sentencing of Michael Flynn several times we've seen it in the and finally the judge said we got to get to this. Let's do this. I want to know why you keep putting this off. So now, he's gonna cooperate more. Which is why would they agree to the sentencing? Now, if they needed him to cooperate more in something else down the road that the thought is it's having to do with the two other Turks two former business associates there what's going on with them. And the prosecution of them is already. Being credited to Flynn's cooperation. So I'm not quite sure what else they're looking at him to cooperate with its. I mean, the the most obvious explanation is that Flynn's legal team is buying time. Because the judge signalled yesterday that he was inclined to perhaps actually give Flynn jail time that he was the enemy not walk out of here Freeman and that despite Mahler sentencing recommendation of zero days in prison Muller's team said no zero days, and then that was when despite that sentencing recommendation Flynn's team came back and apparently and submitted a court filing. The basically said they were questioning the propriety of the way the FBI handled its investigation that questioning here was all wrong. He was never warned ahead of time that he was being investigated. He was never told that lying to the FBI was going to be a crime all of these things. So the judge comes out yesterday Emmett solve and my impression of Sullivan based on how these touch points in the media how we've seen him act towards the Muller team. He's known as a lawyer as a as a judge that is very much a defendant judge. He very much protects the rights of the defendant is very tough on prosecution. But that said, I also get the impression that he's a Harto. He's just kind of a guy who wants to make sure that everyone knows that he's in charge. No matter who's in his courtroom and this happened yesterday with the Flint team, so Flynn's team is like all of a sudden on their heels when he's like are you saying that you're guilty? Plea is false. Are you saying that when you told the told made a plea of guilty that you lied to the FBI that that's not true were you or were you not aware the lying to the FBI was a crime and Flynn whose remember decorated three star general is standing there. And what does he know he knows military discipline? And he knows that you answer questions to a thirty with clarity. You don't you? Don't score. Around with your answer. You don't cook up some political answer you answer? Clearly, and when he said when he asked him, did, you know that it was a legal to light of the FBI Flynn answered unequivocally. Yes, now that left his lawyers with a quandary. What do they do do they maintain the fight do they maintain this? This thing that they're going to work the rafts. Here's the problem the rafts not buying it. Solvent was clearly not buying it yesterday this questions about the FBI's propriety. So they throw a hail Mary again. And they said, okay, we just need to purchase some time here and the lawyer even took credit yesterday. I saw a said that was my decision for us to question the nature of the questioning of by the FBI, so this'll be this is an interesting case. And I'm very interested in this this last point guide morale. Make your point my question to you. But my question with all of this because this is interesting. And but my question is is the judge also asked him why are you pleading guilty to a crime? That's something that's not a crime. Why are you pleading guilty to something that's not a crime lay an gave him the opportunity to rescind the guilty plea. And so the judge knows isn't a crime. This is the second time Manafort also play guilty to something that wasn't a crime. So so I think what the suggestion of the question is if it's something you believe is not a crime, are you pleading guilty to it? Well, be why? But simple they were going to go. There were coming after my son. I lost my house. My life has been destroyed at this point the path of least resistances digest plead guilty at least saved something right to have something at the end of this. But if the point is to protect your son, which apparently which it has been reportedly in the past supposedly this is an effort to protect Mike Flynn junior in amongst other things. Although I think they Flynn denies that. He just says, you know, what about what about the financial burden our family? How about that's a good reason? You can't tell the court that you're guilty. Plea is oppose my unless you want to take that to the take that to distance unless you want to say, this is a totally corrupt process. I'm gonna prove it. That's not the case that they're making. But his lawyer didn't his lawyers set that up with the letter. And then Flynn just said, no, I'm just gonna I'm just going to roll over. I just want to make one last point on this. And I find it super interesting Flynn is apparently cooperated extensively with Bob Muller's team on everything that they could possibly want to the point that Muller has recommended zero days in jail for the guy zero zero. Michael Cohen is accused of being a rat. Michael Cohen by the president is like these are rat. He's given also he's saying things out of school. You know, whatever with Flynn, he has not gotten that treatment, he's gotten supportive treatment. And the reason I think is because Colin was just like, you know, he's a mercenary. He's he's like a guy. He's no, he's a fixture. He doesn't have anything to do with politics. Flynn is a true Maggie Flynn is like, you know, totally bought in. And this is not my theory. I've seen the hot air amongst others. They've been talking about this. But it's interesting that he's so cooperative with Muller get he's still receiving sort of the heroes treatment. He's also being treated as he's a victim of this process. It's just interesting to watch. All right, five.

And Mary Louise Kelley President Trump's sit down with Vladimir Putin looked set to go ahead on the sidelines of the g twenty summit this week. Then Trump threatened to call it off yesterday. He said it was probably on. And then from Air Force One on route to Argentina Trump tweeted. He was pulling out the bottom line is they may have an impromptu chat in Buenos Aires who knows there's nothing on the formal schedule. What we do know is that hanging over any meeting between the leaders of the United States and Russia is Robert Mueller, the special counsel who has been investigating ties between Russia and Trump and who this week showed his hand in a number of interesting ways, prompting journalist Garrett Graff to ask is Robert Muller's in game. Incite graph explores that question in wired magazine this week, and he joins me now hither Garrett by now as is prone to happen in two thousand eighteen there have been twists and turns even since you file. This story, and we're gonna get to some of those but to travel far far back in time all the way to Monday this week forgotten the dark ages. This was the day that Muller's team alleged that Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chair had lied to the FBI. And you argue in your piece in wired that this day Monday may end up breaking among the most consequential days yet of the Muller probe. Why it's an incredibly hard, obviously to read the tea leaves of this investigation surprised us at every turn and often surprises us multiple times within a single day. But it seemed like Monday was the beginning of the end that the decision to declare Paul Manafort as non-cooperative and move forward with his sentencing appears to be perhaps a way that Muller is trying to move forward with publishing something that could. Look like the Muller report that he plans to file sometime presumably next week. A document outlining with the court all of Paul manafort's lies in crimes. So if that is one way that Mueller may be showing his hand or about to show his hand. Let me fast forward you now to yesterday, which is when longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleads guilty again this time of lying to congress about a proposed Trump Tower in Moscow. How does it that shift the picture? It's one of the most significant moves that we've seen so far from Muller because what it does is connects Donald Trump and the Trump organization directly to Russia in directly to Russian President Vladimir Putin during the course of the two thousand sixteen campaign and how so how are they now coming together? We'll what you have is Michael Cohen trying to contact in game the assistance of Ladimir Putin himself. To secure the funding and the approval for Trump Tower Moscow as late as the spring of two thousand sixteen well into the period where Donald Trump has secured the GOP nomination for president of the United States. One of the aspects of Muller strategy appears to have been he's kind of rating, whatever final report he's going to produce at the end of this as he goes, I mean, he's been producing these very detailed court filings. Exactly. And people seem to be waiting for there to be some hard back book that gets published at the end of this. That is labeled the Muller report like nine eleven commission style. Exactly. And I think most people are missing that. He is writing a lot of that report in public with every court filing where the details that he puts into these are far more than is strictly necessary for the criminal prosecution that he's attempting to pursue. So when you look at the. Totality of what? Bob Muller has published in these indictments in these plea agreements, there's a lot there. Well, it's about three hundred pages of what a Bob Muller report would look like at the end. So to your key question is Bob Muller's in game. And I think it is it's incredibly hard as I said to understand where this investigation is going day to day. But Bob Muller has to know that his investigation was under threat, potentially after the election, and after attorney general Jeff Sessions being fired. Absolutely. And that he I think appears to be ready for some rapid movement in the weeks ahead now that doesn't necessarily mean this is going to come to a quick conclusion. The prosecution's for Watergate stretched out over the course of almost a decade. But this is I think a case where George popadopoulos went to prison for his. Fourteen days sentence last Monday, another former trumpet, we should mention. Yes. And that I think by the time George popadopoulos comes out of prison. We're gonna know a lot more about this case, journalist and Muller biographer Garrett Graff Garrett. Thank you. My pleasure. So as we just heard one of the most significant developments in the Muller probe this week was President Trump's former lawyer and fix Michael Cohen pleading guilty to lying to congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign and that effort came after decades of President Trump trying to build in Russia to be NYC's. Ilya marritz, co host the Trump Inc podcast. He joins me now to give us a more of the long view. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. I should say Trump Inc. Right. I have to get to Trump Inc. So we know some about Michael Cohen's work during the presidential campaign. How does this week's news ads what we already knew about Trump's efforts to build in Russia? Well, we now know because Trump's former lawyer said it in court that Trump was actively pursuing a tower in Moscow while he was campaigning for the Republican nomination for president. This is something Donald Trump has long denied what history tells us is that Trump has long wanted to put his name on a building in Moscow. So in one thousand nine hundred seven he visits the US. Czar the Soviet Union, and he talks about how they need luxury hotels in Moscow and Leningrad. He makes another trip in one thousand nine hundred ninety s doesn't get anywhere. And then in the two thousand Trump's starts to lend his name to developers around the world. And there's a there deals around Russia. There's one in Azerbaijan there's one in the Republic of Georgia which Michael Cohen helps to arrange in twenty thirteen Trump's comes to Moscow again for the Miss Universe pageant. He owns the pageant, and he says again that he's in talks with developers. And then finally we see a renewed effort in two thousand fifteen and two thousand sixteen to build in Moscow.

"That there are just so many, of them it's impossible. To keep your head above water There were stories all over the place that Michael Cohen told the Robert Muller team that Trump knew about the Russia meeting before, the Russia meeting took place the one in Trump Tower where Kaya said that she had dirt on Hillary Clinton they're pretending that it would be illegal to take a, meeting with the Russian that has dirt on Hillary Clinton when the. Entire dossier was paid for by Hillary Clinton and. It's, all dirt that they got from Russians on Donald Trump and so the news media is completely corrupt there now if Michael Cohen did tell the Muller investigators that he was, aware that Trump knew about the meeting in advance and that Cohen himself was aware of the meeting in advance then he's got a problem because he testified under oath before congress repeatedly telling members of congress. That he didn't know anything about the meeting, beforehand and that the president didn't? Know anything about the meeting beforehand so if he did tell the. Muller people does he committed perjury somewhere there Either to congress or to the Muller people one of the other thus rendering him a terribly unreliable. Witness who I don't think can be believed, an on anything at that point But the news media's all over it and then let's pretend that the president.
