Why Kyle Rittenhouse Should've Never Gone to Trial
"Where my brain goes with this stuff, it's sort of like saying Supreme Court declares one plus one equals two. And everybody cheers. And there's a side of me that says, why are we cheering? Like we know one plus one equals two. The only horror is that we needed to hear what the Supreme Court said on it as though they didn't themselves know that one plus one equals two. At that point right now. Roger Kimball wrote a brilliant column about this. Kyle rittenhouse, that should case never have gone to trial. We had high definition video of leftist thugs chasing them through the streets yelling, kill him, kill him, kill him. We had video of someone clubbing him with a skateboard. We had video of someone pointing a gun at him. When he shot those three psychotics, one of whom was a pedophile. It was obviously self defense. He was even this. This is like my brain explodes. You say one of whom was a pedophile. Okay, a child rapist. Now, if you're following the news, many people already know this. But I think it bears repeating since we've not addressed this issue. Talking about things that are so confusing. In other words, it's not an issue of Kyle rittenhouse is chased by some people or whatever. The people chasing him are the sort of characters that anybody would say are super bad people. Not anybody Eric, not anybody, the mainstream media were to say calling them heroes. A Democrat legislator saying, they were a group of heroes. They were antiracist activists and Kyle rittenhouse cross state lines illegally with an AR-15 attack. Assault weapon and killed them. None of which is true. They will have no we know, don't take for granted or the old maybe your listeners don't know this because you're the only person saying it. If they read MS MSN, if they watch NBC, if they watch CNN, they don't know any of this. They think he was a white nationalist who carried a gun across state lines and murdered people. None of which is true. He didn't carry a gun across state lines. He shot himself defense. He wasn't a white nationalist. They were white communist thugs trying to murder him trying to burn down a used car dealership of some small businessman.

NBC News Calls What Happened at Waukesha Christmas Parade an 'Accident'
"Look at this story here from NBC News. This is on Twitter. They tweeted out NBC News, video captured by a ring camera appears to show, and I don't want to say his name.

Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes Resign From Fox News
"Know there's a conservative crack up going on inside the beltway as Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have departed from Fox News. There's a story at the American spectator about addition by subtraction at Fox News with which I disagree. Molly Hemingway quotes from it approvingly. Molly is a good friend as his mark. Byron York works with both Jonah and Steven Jonah longtime friend of the show, Stephen a's used to be. He drops a nuclear bomb on my head a couple of years ago that I didn't see coming, but I don't know what that's all about. Byron York works with everybody and apparently amicably like I try to do as I quote tamale Lincoln's first inaugural. We are not enemies. We must not be enemies, but friends, Byron, what is going on? Well, good morning you. My official position in all of this is that I wish everyone well. Yeah, you and I pretty much adopt the same view on beltway, penda tree. Yeah, well, what can I say? You're a Fox News contributor. Do you have a conflict? I don't want to put you in a bad spot. No, I am a Fox News contributor. I have been since 2006. And I've been happy to be Fox News. So I think that that's my story right there. And by the way, I am an NBC News contributor though I've been exiled and they're about to breach my deal. I don't know why, but I've been exiled. So who knows what's going on inside of network executives trying to figure out their audiences? I think this all comes down to trying to find your audience and keep them happy. Well, I mean, there's always been this a lot of commentary about thoughts about having almost being like the old broadcast entertainment networks. In the sense that they had the news division and then they had entertainment programming. So people said, well, the prime time program on Fox is kind of like the entertainment programming and the special report and approximately Sunday in the whole daytime, really are all about the news division. I think that's unfair because a lot of news is made during prime time on Fox. But clearly it's opinion driven and clearly Steve and Jonah became increasingly uncomfortable with the prime time programming. So I am not sure what to say beyond

Federal Investigators Launch Civil Rights Probe Into Southlake, Texas Schools
"I want to pivot here to a story that is, it's really, it's a massive story. It's out of southlake, Texas, federal investigators, this per NBC News launched civil rights probe into southlake, Texas schools. Now you will remember that south Lake became one of the hotbeds in this CRT school board battle that has been raging across the country with concerned parents. Now yesterday Charlie did an amazing job covering memo gate as we are thus dubbing it. Where it is now become clear that despite Merrick Garland's claims that there was no FBI, you know, surveilling of parents, that is indeed the case, a whistleblower has come forth. Some of our favorite representatives like Jim Jordan out of Ohio have been leading on this issue, actually, we have Jim Jordan's going to be joining the show here soon for a long form discussion here shortly. It's also got a great book out, recommend everybody checking it out. So Jim Jordan's been out front on memo gate. Now, we find out that there's something brewing. And I don't love the direction. There's two simultaneous concurrent streams that are running counter to what we all thought we learned after Virginia. After even New Jersey was too close to call an election night. After Republicans swept races all across the country. Even in Seattle. What were the messages? That we thought we learned? Well, that CRT is dumb, and that parents don't like it, and that it's a losing issue for Democrats. And that Republicans get rewarded when they fight things like CRT. When they don't take a neutral stance in the public square, but fight it with everything they've got and they say, listen, I'm going to exercise state power and not cop out on some, you know, we believe in small government, which we do, but these are not mutually exclusive things. The government as constituted in the United States of America is designed fundamentally to protect the rights of its citizens. And to predict the right to protect the rights of parents. And what conservatives too often do is they hide behind that as a excuse to do nothing

'Covington Kid' Nick Sandmann Thinks Kyle Rittenhouse Should Sue for Defamation: ‘Hold the Media Accountable’
"One more note here is we're watching the Kenosha trial of Kyle rittenhouse. Remember the Covington Catholic high school student Nicholas Sandman who won millions of dollars from the mainstream media, one of the few people I've ever seen to take on the beast and he won. By the way, that kid get all that money? 'cause it was like 20 some $1 million. Is that kid walking around with like $27 million in his bank account? He filed defamation lawsuits as you'll recall against CNN, Washington Post NBC for out of context portrayals of the then 16 year old student, appearing to mock the Native American Nathan Phillips. He won like millions. Well, Nicholas Sandman is saying that Kyle rittenhouse should do the same that he did and filed a defamation suit against the media beast. Maybe a couple of maybe a couple of rich kids thanks to the mainstream media

Almost Half of US Millennials ‘Don’t Know, Believe or Care if God Exists’
"Arizona Christian university did a study with millennials. Now look, I'm gonna be very clear. I find it very hard to believe that 40% of millennials are gay. Okay, I just find that really hard to believe. Let's pretend it's half right, 20%, 10%, 10% would be extraordinary, by the way. I think that one Gen Z one showed one in 5. Is that right? That's what the NBC one said. So some of these numbers could be a little off, but some of these numbers could be rather instructive. 63% of millennials lean on personal emotions, past experience in the advice of others when making moral choices. No wonder whether so miserable. They're looking themselves for all the answers when all the answers are right there for you. There's been a lot of scholarship done before you were born. You're not the most important thing in the world. This is the amazing one. Millennials are half as likely as adults to say that life is sacred. Millennials do not have as much respect for human beings as adults do, from other generations. Millennials are significantly less likely to believe that God is the basis of truth to believe the Bible is a reliable source of moral guidance. To say that they have unique purpose from God, they do not accept the idea of original sin, which I've been saying in our show for quite some time. They do not believe that you should try to avoid sin. They do not accept the Bible as the inherent word of God. This is like 60 70% millennials, by the way. They do not pray during a typical week. They do not believe that Satan is real and influential, and they do not define success as consistent obedience to God. They're less likely than prior generations. Millennials are twice as likely to say that people they always respect are ones who hold the same religious political views as they do. So it's becoming this kind of self radicalization,

Trump Smiles as Baseball Fans Chant 'Let's Go Brandon' During World Series Game 4
"There was quite the chant again at the World Series. Let's go Brandon. Here's the headline, which is actually kind of amusing. Trump smiles as baseball fans chant. Let's go Brandon in his direction. Everybody knows what let's go Brandon means. It is, I guess a symbolic gesture of the rage and the anxiety and the frustration that people feel over the direction of the country. NBC News, Paul came out over the weekend. 71% of Americans are convinced that the country is headed in the wrong direction. And so you know, I guess I should explain it to you. Maybe it's better if I don't. Because let's go Brandon is a crude G rated translation of a very angry phrase. A profanity laced phrase. And it has taken off all over the country and the left doesn't know what to do about it. They are livid. But they have to acknowledge somewhere. In the back of their P brains, the left realizes they shed far worse about Donald Trump. And us for four years. In fact, they didn't use a substitute phrase. They said it. Over and over again, they said it. F Trump, F his fans, F is supporters, we're all white supremacists. We're all racist. We're all monsters. We're all rotten people. And on and on and on and on. You know, as Biden says, you know the thing. So now let's go Brandon has become a thing. And I am short of torn between getting a kick out of it and realizing we should probably not roll the way they do.

Mainstream Media Ignores Massive Migrant Caravan Heading to US Border
"Right now there is a multi thousand person caravan heading straight for our country, right to the southern border. Between all the mainstream activist networks ABC, NBC CBS CNN MSNBC, zero, mentions on their morning show. This morning that there is a multi thousand person caravan heading for the southern border. Let's go to cut 40 build illusion reporting on how migrants are hiding in cars on trains on their way to San Antonio high cut 40. What you're looking at are Texas state troopers finding 19 illegal immigrants hiding inside of brand new cars that were inside of a train being shipped to the San Antonio area. You can see the troopers looking at those migrants panning up and down Texas DPS pulled 5 other single adult males off of this train arrested them as well. They are all going to jail as well. Again, they are not being handed over to border patrol. And now cut 25, Fox shows how many Texas has deployed the state National Guard as caravans gather in Mexico, heading for Texas, play cut 25. What you're looking at is the Texas National Guard deploying to the area in and around the Del Rio international bridge. Why are they doing this? Because they've seen that migrant caravan that's on the way to the United States as we speak. Texas governor Greg Abbott says he is not going to allow another Del Rio situation to happen like we saw with the Haitians last month. He is pre deploying resources out there as a Shoal force to say if the federal government isn't going to secure that area, the state of Texas will step up. We will fill that void, and they are sending a message to that caravan saying, you will not be allowed to enter Texas. Texas is learning from their lesson of the last lesson I should say are their mistake where they allowed Haitians just to walk right into the state of Texas with almost no one stopping

Some small town thought they knew who killed her and why motives were thrown thrown out late jealousy. Some kind of love triangle. ORB still no arrest. We just gotTa keep going keep moving ahead now. Many years after the murder new detectives were taking over the case. The answer is in these files who's just going to be a matter of time. They're about to try an amazing. DNA tool that can paint a picture of a suspect certain characteristics like hair colour and I call her skin tone. A suspect would left behind a charming clue. And and something else you read the letters just do that. This was the guy here again. Is Andrea Canada. In the years moved slowly for Zieger family each anniversary of leases murder marked by a vigil with no arrest chronicled by NBC C. Affiliate W. W. l. p.. They come every year to sing to pray yes. It was six years ago today. That native Lisa Zieger disappeared appeared. Eager to murder is an act of one. Despite the passage of nine years the zegers found touching ways to mark the milestones. Lisa should have been the maid of honor at Linz Wedding. My husband and I went to the cemetery brought her a bouquet that she would have carried. That is a really nice way to include her in your wedding thing. Yeah they all had an actual K.. For Leisa the family raised. Money for scholarships and Lisa's name and help dedicate memorials to her. There's memories and reminders of Lisa everywhere. She still makes a difference at every vigil. Every press conference every event there was leases mom standing front and center the face of a determined family. We want people to remember Lisa for what she was and also to remind people. This is an unsolved case. No one has led the charge more than you to insuring that it stayed active and that people cared and people were paying attention. This is a real mother's love right here. I never refused an interview. I never refused refused working on something so that if they saw me then they saw Lisa they remembered about Lisa. I think it was helpful in in keeping Lisa story relevant a kept it very real to everyone for a number of years. We did Memorial Golf Tournament and we raise Bunny for scholarships for Kizza Highschool. But Lisa's brother. David says at times family paid an emotional price for their efforts it. It became some kind of mental drain for my family because all it reminded us is another years gone by and we still have no no answer. She's got no justice so it just became too much and we stopped at. Lisa's unsolved murder. Also weighed heavily on detective. Wayne macy who who with the passage of time had grown close to Lisa's parents. Deion George Ziegler Te. This family that started off strangers really became like family to first first day shooting under steps from that day on. I have so much respect for both Georgian de mainly because I don't know how does you And Lisa herself held a special place in his heart. I never met Lucia but I know her. I know picture because in my mind and I am. I visited the grave quite often during the investigation. Just talking to her letting her know Brad given up but after a decade of investigating Mesa had still not been able to solve the case. Did this case haunt you did there were eight murders in Guam that I remember and we seven arrests and seven convictions. Leashes leashes with only one that was on stalled. macy had worked tirelessly to find. Lisa's killer. Investigators had crossed oceans. Running down leads. They had built a massive case file filled with names of potential suspects names of people who had been cleared names of people who had refused to submit the DNA samples all those boxes and file cabinets. Proof that the case never went cold it was never far. From all of our thoughts on the forefront really because even though you have a larceny or a bank robbery or whatever other crime you're going after leashes the number one case. The effort wasn't lost on Lisa's family. I think that you do feeling well. They can only give resources to for so long. It's not their fault that There is nothing there to find so I think it was always astounding. Yeah they comfort. Every time that they would remind us that this will never be a cold-case cold-case but despite macy's best efforts he would never see an arrest on his watch. You retired in two thousand and three with this case unsolved. That's a bitter pill to swallow as you walk out the door that police station for the last time I had thought about that And in thinking about not retiring but I truly add enough. Sometimes you have to know when to pass on the torch and and to give it to somebody else switch them fresh energy new ideas. Just give it to them and let them fly would that somebody was sergeant mark bow. You Work uh-huh patrolman on this case from day one and now fast forward ten years you're in charge of the whole case that's correct. We may see retires. I get promoted. And then when he leaves the detective bureau the the cases assigned to me so much to do so much to do so much to do with regards to where where the case stands thou- faced an enormous task of combing through file cabinets and boxes filled with evidence and leads reading every every note and document that was gathered throughout the years elite. A tip of phone call would come in in the investigators we'd take it and they start defile and that individual and they'd worked at file as far as they could take it at that time so even after ten years did. Did you keep getting new tips then. All the time tips were coming in kept get hitting dead ends hidden did it. But then you pick up another file and you and you run with that. How frustrating was that hitting getting so many walls? It was very frustrating. Because you you saw. The time and effort of the previous investigates in your team are working hard and you kept the faith that it was that the answer was in these files and it was just going to be a matter of time time it turns out was was on their side. Another decade passed but then a groundbreaking tool and DNA analysis emerged and investigators were about to take a giant giant leap toward identifying leases killer coming up a picture of a killer drawn by DNA for the first time we had a face to put with the boogeyman.

"The day after she he says Jeffrey Epstein and Glenn Maxwell assaulted her. Virginia went back to Epstein's home. She says she thought they had a job for her. What did they promise sir. Tell you would happen if you stayed with them. I would get educated and I would become a real masseuse in that was the promise I'd been so abused by that time. If this is what it was taking to get me a life away from abuse and into a normal life like working working at us Fallin Mar-a-lago was a necessary evil. Virginia quickly found herself part of Epstein's luxurious life. She was jetting places on his private plane. You can see her name. On these flight logs. She went to parties like this one for Naomi Campbell and he paid her more money honey than she had ever had enough to get herself her own apartment but she says it all came at a terrible cost. Jeffrey's life revolved around and abuse. Virginia says she was expected to be on call for Epstein at all times so sometimes you would have to be with him several times a day several times a day. Another young woman said in a deposition Epstein told her his sexual appetite was biological. He needed to have three orgasms day. The servitude was constant in the morning in the afternoon in the evening while you're watching a movie while you're in the airplane it was everywhere. was there pressure on you to look a certain way or to retain a certain physical appearance parents. I had to pretend like I was happy. You couldn't just be depressed around Geoffrey Yu to pretend like like I told you. He wanted all of us to be his little lalita. After several months with Epstein Virginia says things took a turn when Epstein instructed her to have sex with other men she was seventeen when she flew flu with Epstein and Maxwell to London what happened. Keelan woke me up in the morning excited and she said you're GonNa meet a prince today. Maxwell was talking about Prince Andrew Queen Elizabeth's second son in court filings. Virginia has described. What she says was her first encounter with the prince it began she says when they all had dinner with Prince Andrew and then went to an elite London nightclub Prince Andrew's. Let's dance together and I was like okay and he's a hideous dancer and he was sweating profusely all over me and I just remember like you need a shower gusting that night ended and I'd hop in the car with Keelan. Jeffrey and Gillan said he's coming back to the house and I want you to do for him but you do for Epstein. I couldn't believe it. She says they returned to Maxwell's London home so we get upstairs and I used to carry around these little Kodak disposable cameras and Jeffrey's like a picture of you and Andrew together and that's the infamous this picture that everybody sees with Phelan in the background that set her second story and the Townhouse Virginia says she went with Prince Andrew into a bathroom and their sexual actual encounter began they abuse went on for a little bit in the bathroom and then it continued to the bedroom and he wasn't rude or anything anything about it. He said thank you. She says the next time she saw the prince was the epsteins New York home. She remembers she and another girl. Were instructed to sit the prince's lap a person who was there told. NBC News. She remembers that incident and then he groped. One of our breasts are exactly. New England took a picture. You know we US girls were just twice really at the end of the day. Virginia says she was also directed wanted to have sex with the prince on epsteins private island. You seem to have a very specific memory of those occasions. Have you thought about why that stands is out to so much. He was a prince. He was like he was famous. He's royalty and it just stuck out in my mind. I grew up watching Disney. He just like most little girls grow up watching Disney. Princesses and princes were the good people of the world and he wasn't Prince Andrew of course denies that this ever happened. He denies that it ever happened and he's going to keep denying that it ever happened but he knows the truth and I know the truth. Buckingham Palace issued a statement saying it is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship unshipped with Virginia Roberts. Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation Virginia admits during her time with Epstein she he was free to come and go but says it didn't always feel that way. You're getting deeper and deeper how is it that you didn't feel like if you could go away Jeffrey and gallons way of keeping US under his thumb under his rule under their control or invisible chains and it was that constant we own the police you can't run. You can't tell anybody. We'll never be held accountable for this coming up. Everybody was a piece of the puzzle. Everybody played a role deep inside the the Epstein Organization they had eight people flying down to Brazil and actually recruiting underage girls off the soccer fields.

Lynne up the stairs through Jeffries bedroom and into a bathroom through and there's this man laying naked on a green table in the middle of the room. That's the first time you laid eyes on Jeffrey Epstein Severi first time and they looked at each other and I called the Cheshire Cat Grin because he smiled and nodded as in like approval has you were starting this massage did they try to get to know your background.

"But you can still be to John's point real politic and believe our intelligence services, and that is the other dimension of this that is similar to how he's talked about flat. Amir Putin that is similar to how he's talked about. Mohammed bin Salman, which is that our intelligence services believed that Otto warmbier was taken intentionally and strategically because if you look at the timing of it, it was three days before Kim Jong UN was about to test a missile for the first time in three years. This is a well known tactic of the Koreans which is North Koreans, which is strategic hostage taking so count this. As yet another time where this president is not just trying to butter up, dictators and strongmen but doing it in defiance of our own intelligence. You know, presidencies take on the personalities of of the president always agree. There's nothing nothing inherently wrong with walking away from negotiation. I don't think that's a problem. But in this is gonna sound harsh. This is a presidency entirely, without empathy. I think there's what you're getting only because he he seems to be for all appearances person who was entirely without empathy. Whatever his strong, suit's or or weeks. He does not have the ability to. To feel personally and deeply the suffering of others. He never exhibits that and and I think that's Cohen was getting it in his testimony.

"Back data download time. So what characteristics are Democrats looking for not looking for in a presidential candidate? Well, the answer may come in. Our new NBC news Wall Street Journal poll this month, we asked voters about certain types of characteristics that would make them enthusiastic comfortable, and what characteristics would make them have some reservations or uncomfortable about a certain candidate. We're going to do other characteristics next month and throughout this election season across the board Democrats were enthusiastic comfortable with a candidate who is African American a woman candidate white male, someone gay or lesbian on the flip side only. Thirty three percent of Democrats were comfortable with someone over the age of seventy five as their nominee and only forty five percent. We're comfortable with a potential socialist president, I can think of a few Democrats running for president or at least thinking about it who one or both of those descriptions, and by the way, while the margins vary. Democrats are in line with voters overall on those questions, so where are the splits between Democrats and everyone else? Well, sixty seven percent of Democrats would be enthusiastic or comfortable with a Muslim president compared to just forty nine percent. Overall, only thirty seven percent of Democrats though are okay with an evangelical Christian versus fifty four percent overall. And only thirty one percent of Democrats want to see a business executive president wonder what that's about overall that number is fifty six percent, look as we get further into this process. Keep close attention to what Democrats in the country. Overall have said they don't want someone over seventy five, and they don't want to socially, but we testing other characteristics. Like people who are Hispanic an Asian American, president atheist woman of color military leaders in. Yes, billionaires he'll become into a data. Download near you. When we come back. What the president said about the death of student auto one beer is he really taking Kim Jong UN at his work. And game brought to you by Boeing continuing our mission to connect protect explore and inspire. Back now with endgame in an awkward and to the North Korea talks, and I say awkward, and I want to set aside we walking away from a from talks could be a good thing. So let's let's put that aside. But it was the auto one beer stuff that really sort of left a horrible taste in the mouth of a lot of people. Here was the president on Thursday on talking about Otto warmbier the the now deceased students who died he sensually in the hands of the North Korean government. Here is the president on Thursday in Hanoi. I don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen. Just wasn't his advantage you allow that to happen. He tells me that he didn't know about it. And I will take him at his word. Here's the president yesterday. Trying to explain those comments. And I'm in such a horrible position. Because in one way, I have to negotiate in the other way, I love Mr. and MRs warmbier, and I love auto a lot of what I do with respect to North Korea at any success that we hopefully have and we've had a lot. We'll give it no credit out of one beers. Parents put up their own statement, we have been respectful during the summit process.

"The president replicated implicated the prison. I mean, the fact talking about the president looking at him and saying if I was going to go to Vietnam, you think I'm stupid that the president who he says never indicated he loved the country or wanted to make it better. This is a guy who spent you know, years and years at his side. I think there's a lingering sort of cumulative impact of that intimate portrait damning portrait painted by someone so close to the president. That's by itself is unimpeachable. I do think we're going to get to impeachment. Somebody's not only Democrats are going to be able to hold themselves back. As they get closer to twenty twenty. I don't think it matters. Because frankly, nothing's going to drive this president from office. He you have to think of him. He's he's not he's not Nixon as I said, he's he's he's buddy CNC. He's marrying Barry. He's a guy who loves Adam. He loves it. Right. He wants the fight. He he does Hellene. This was great Washington Post on Wednesday about why why did House Republicans just attack Cohen and not defend Trump. Here's what one Bligh anonymous House Republicans said truthfully, it is tough to ignore some of the gross immoral behavior by the president said one senior House Republican. But the reason there was no defense is because there is no defense as Jim Jordan didn't want to defend certain things with the pressure know. I mean, I thought that was one of the extrordinary things that came out of the Michael Cohen hearing was that so many Republicans didn't barter the, you know. No, you didn't hear people saying Trump isn't a racist. You didn't hear people saying, you know, let me defend the president. You hear hurt them? You know, doing a consorted making a concerted effort to go after Cohen, and that you know, to break down his credibility is clearly. The Republican strategy one of the things I thought, you know, I used to cover buddy CNC at the providence completely. Me up with this whole like that's a great comparison. Yeah. But one of the things I thought was a little bit sad about the reaction to the Cohen hearing is that the United States people in the United States now are so in their respective camps. You have the left way off to the left of the right at the right? And nobody is listening to facts or anything like that. That's presented. You people are not coming out and saying, wow, he said this. He said that it's all been baked into the process and people here what they wanna hear. I think Jim Jordan set out. The course for the Republican party from here on out, which is I don't want to talk about this. I want to talk about tax cuts. I want to talk about the economy. I want to talk about foreign policy. What we have here beginning in one thousand nine hundred eight when Bill Clinton got into so much trouble.

"Our own NBC news, national political reporter, Heidi press, Bella and appearing on meet the press for the first time, which is which is an air on my fault. John potholes editor of commentary. I know I feel like saying this. So you're the first time or somebody gets you the first shot at this. I'm gonna put a Peggy Noonan from this weekend. Because it was a fascinating column. She did overall sort of both trying to explain Trump world. But also what she saw. And here's what she writes. What is amazing is on the Coen hearings? What is it mazing though, is that such a rebuke such an attack on the essential nature of a president? And by an intimate has no equal in our history. John dean said there was a cancer growing in the presidency. He didn't say Richard Nixon was the cancer J pot. Okay. So Michael Cohen. If the SDN wise, southern new SUV, New York, whoever hadn't broken down the door of his hotel room in the regency hotel, you know, in the summer of two thousand eighteen will he have said these words that he said this week. Of course, not he threw himself on the mercy of the world that hates Trump having spent ten years doing nothing, but defending Trump's so his his Bora Listrik attack on Trump has to be taken with, you know, not a grain of salt, but a mountain of salt having said that. The weird thing. I think about the Coen testimony is that despite Jim Jordan saying he was a terrible liar in some ways he helped Trump on the larger question of Russia and impeachment by saying that Trump did not formally did not say I want you to lie the congress by saying that he had attempted to purchase the the videotapes mentioned in the dossier and had decided from that experience that they did not exist. So that in a couple of other things as somebody who said, I hate Trump now, and he's terrible. And everything is terrible. He and if he is such a confirmed liar. Why didn't he say Trump told me the lie if he had said, it Trump would there be subject to the possible charge of subornation of perjury? But he didn't say it. Hey, the credit Michael Collins credibility increased because he build Trump out of a few things he did. And that's to John's point that there was a number of cases here where he actually defended the president against some pretty nasty accusations that have been swirling around like the elevator tape. You know, the rumors of that he had somehow hit Malania in the elevator. And so he kind of built up his credibility because he wasn't one hundred percent trashing Trump, and especially on the collusion point. He said he didn't see evidence of collusion. And so he wasn't one hundred percent trashing the president, and that made him more credible on the new things that he did bring to the table, which was the news here that there had been hush money payments and not just one that were made throughout the entire course of this presidency. He also suggested that there is another separate criminal investigation going on at the STN. Why he said there were things he couldn't talk about and tantalizingly. He mentioned his final conversation with Trump is something that was in that scope and that he couldn't talk about. That was that Matt by and we have the story this morning about maybe it's a pardon that the that the that they're doing, but let me ask this impeachable. Is he John being John dean brought the end of the Nixon presidency. Did Michael Cohen not in that particular problems. I look I agree with you because he's a liar, and you have to and and you know, we've known this, and you have to take take that face value that being said I thought and I agree with Peggy Noonan on this. It was the portrait of the president he painted particularly his opening statement that I thought maybe perhaps as more damaging in the end than any particular thing in which I'm which he is ready..

"There's probably a few other things that we can prove he seemed believe he's never been to Prague. He said that. And that's something you can verify that you can passports. He can look at travel. So that undermines this whole dossier, which remember was the basis for this whole crazy investigation to begin with. So that's not. I mean that that isn't the facts say, it's a big fat. It is something that you we've had. It's something that you believe, but it is not been proven. No. It's the league thing they took to the fisa court to get the warranty goes by on the Trump campaign. And no, by the way. Even even prove it. We got these papers released to the public. You've you found out that the that wasn't sure is. Yes, it is. And they didn't tell the court that the Clinton campaign. Never forget, what happened there the Clinton campaign paid the law firm Perkins coup who hired fusion GPS who hired a foreigner. And whether that four hundred to talk to a couple of the that, you were left out the Republican together long FBI used to get the warrant to spy on the pain. Why do you not want? This investigation concluded by Robert Muller. I want to conclude on one old whip. But there's continued at you continue to question and interfere with it. So how is it ever going to end? If you question interfere with it. I'm not question interfere with. I I've just it's gonna be public. The president said he wants to to continue. He's allowed to continue is going to continue at some point. They'll be some investigation. And then the attorney general Bill bar will decide we'll follow the long release what he wants to release them maybe released the whole thing that's going to happen. We all know that we know is lately released Donald Trump junior. Does. I'm I'm open to whatever the attorney general decides he should follow the law all the regulations, and if their release it all I tend to think err on the side of transparency I've been for that all along. I want the FIS applications I want to throw twos from Roussel. I want all that information released. So we can get to the bottom of the American people can know exactly what happened when they launched. This thing. Do you believe the Russians interfered with the two thousand sixteen election? Everyone said that they thought they were trying to impact the alleged. You believe it the question Muller, you believe. Yeah. I mean, of course, that's what the intelligence community told us. But there is you believe they did it to Donald Trump win. Who knows why they did it? But there's zero evidence that is positive. It sounds like you believe it's possible that Russians for their own foreign policy reasons wanna Trump not would I don't know. I mean, they can they can do whatever they whatever they're trying to do who knows what their motives were what I know is there's not one bit of evidence to show any type of coordination collusion conspiracy whatsoever. Between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election. But. But there is all kinds of evidence to show that the Clinton campaign work with Russians to impact the elections via that whole thing. I just described where they hired Perkins. QE law firm who hired fusion who hired a foreigner. Christopher Steele who communicated with Russians and put together the fake dossier. Why do you think that Donald Trump hired somebody like Paul Manafort with ties to Russian mobsters? Why do you think that Paul Manafort decided to work for free for the Trump campaign have no idea any of that bother you? But you gotta remember doing is with the Russian government..

"So and we had a pretty much an eight or nine hour public hearing. So how was the exchange behind closed doors different than what the public's on Wednesday? Well, first of all, let's realize this is a guy who was backed before us because he had lied to our intelligence committee about the fact that the ongoing negotiations on a tower to be built in Moscow went way beyond what he said. And frankly, what Donald Trump said, and I I do think it's curious that Mr. Trump has spent more than a decade trying to Bill. Build a building in Moscow. Didn't get much traction suddenly becomes a candidate for president. And he's got all kinds of offers. The only thing he lied about that, you know, of right now, what will again, we've got the three things that are in the public domain that. I think we need further investigation. How long were the negotiations going on for Trump Tower Moscow? Obviously beyond January did the beyond even the convention. The president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said they may have gone on to all the way through the election. I think most voters would have liked to have known that piece of information before they voted. Secondly, this allegation is that a crime though. Well, it's not not necessarily a climate. Let lawyers make a determination on that. But it would be sure as heck relevant fact that a candidate for president was trying to negotiate with a foreign power Russia offering the leader of that foreign power, Putin, a fifty million dollar free penthouse. I think most Americans. Would say that's a relevant piece of information. The other two pieces of information that I think we need more on Mr. Trump has said he didn't know anything about the WikiLeaks. Dump of information detrimental to Clinton. Mr Collins says that he was in the office when Trump took a call from Julian Assange right a day or two before the dump of the information, we need to find out if that's true or not. And then we also heard testimony that Donald Trump junior at least indicated Donald Trump about the infamous now Trump Tower meeting that included his trip, the president son, the president's son-in-law the president's campaign manager again that meeting was not about Russian adoptions. It was about offering dirt on Hillary Clinton. We need to find out of all those things true was your entire focus of your portion of Michael Cohen only about the Russia portion or did you also spend time in the Trump organization and the various outside of Russia parameters that you've been focused on some of those facts came up some of the Todd Rian inappropriate behavior, some of the payoffs, but that was not something that we focused on our investigation is the only by. Artisan investigation that still focused on counterintelligence what happened in twenty sixteen what level of collaboration collusion? How do we make sure it doesn't happen again in the future? Why do you believe Michael Cohen suddenly telling you the truth now when he lied on? This guy does not have a lot of veracity. We need to get documents. We are receiving additional documents from him to true prove or disprove. But I'd also say Donald Trump doesn't exactly have a great record of telling the truth as well. I want to play something that you're the chair of the committee said not too long ago. Richard Burr, take a listen. Well, I'm not sure how to put it any clearer than that set it before we have no factual evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. What does that mean, no factual evidence? Well again. Russian barn. I have worked together. Very well. We're going to continue to work together. I think there is enormous amounts of evidence. What you do with that evidence where it leads. I'm reserving my judgment until we finish. The is it fair to call it circumstantial right now, let's go just go through the litany of what we know the ongoing negotiations about Trump Tower well into the campaign, I believe the fact that Mr. Trump knew about the the dump of the WikiLeaks material the fact that clearly the meeting at Trump Tower meeting, which was not described appropriately..

"This Sunday battlelines Michael Cohen tells congress what he thinks of President Trump using racist. He's conman and using sheet and provides new areas for investigators to look at from Jared, Nevada to Mr. Trump's tax return Republicans attack. Cohen you lied allies to our Aligarh liar liar pants on fire and President Trump tells a conservative conference what he thinks of all the investigators and all of a sudden they're trying to take you out with both. I'll talk to the vice chairman of the Senate intelligence committee democrat Mark Warner and to the ranking Republican on the house oversight committee, Jim Jordan, plots. Democrats and activists are arguing over impeaching the president impeachment of this corrupt and lawless president is a first step impeachment device at issue in a country. And let us see what the facts are debating purity tests for democratic members of congress and disagreeing over what's more important to them in twenty. Twenty a candidate who shares their views or one who simply can be President Trump and finally no deal. The president walks away without an agreement with Kim Jong UN on nukes and sanctions sometimes you have to walk. This was just one of those times. So what happens now, join any insight and analysis on Helene Cooper Pentagon correspondent for the New York Times that by national political columnist for Yahoo news NBC news, national political reporter, Heidi press, Bella and John pot ords editor of commentary walk them. This sunday. It's meet the press. From NBC news in Washington, the longest running show in television history. This is meet the press Chuck. Good Sunday morning to be fair. We've lost count of the number of times, we've been tempted to say that this or that week was the most consequential of the Trump presidency, but this week certainly is worthy of consideration. Consider we saw President Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen testify before congress about alleged illegal activity by Mr. Trump as president. We saw House Republicans ignore all of Coen's charges and fiercely attack Coen's credibility. We saw the Hanoi summit with Kim Jong UN fall apart with no agreement. We saw an emerging controversy over how Jared Kushner received his top secret security clearance. We saw the house vote to reverse the president's national emergency declaration. And then yesterday, we saw a president who seen both energized by his crowd at a conservative conference and simultaneously unnerved by everything that's happening around him in the longest speech of his presidency before an Doering CPAC audience, Mr. Trump was eager or maybe desperate. To recount every success every controversy and every grievance of his presidency. Groucho is negotiating with China. I'm building the wall, and we got rid of the individual mandate religious, liberty lion. James Comey, socialism, the collusion delusion those caravans national emergency. We're being invaded by drugs by people by criminals, phony charges of Russia. Russia Russia Russia, Russia, the manic performance complete with expletives seemed like a fitting end to a week like few others, Mr. Trump's presidency. I heard this morning. President Trump is waiting for the Muller reported with Muller's report expected any day. President Trump delivered an agitated one hundred and twenty two minutes speech to conservative activists on Saturday railing against the special counsel. Now, Robert Muller. Never received a vote and his own Justice department for leaving Muller in place. And as you know, the attorney general says, I'm going to recuse myself, you put the wrong people in a couple of physicians, and they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there. And all of a sudden, they're trying to take you out with okay?.

"You know, what I mean by exposing them to the fans, it's not nascar's job is not NBC's job is not FOX's job to represent a driver as a certain thing. Right. It's our job to expose who that driver is to the fans, so they can get to know them and get to like him or not like him because you know, I know in today's world, it's not politically correct not to like somebody and express it. But dammit that sports. I'm gonna tell you right now today that I would I am pull in completely against the New England Patriots. Correct. I don't care because that's what sports are about is. I want him to lose. I won't care line. I want the tar heels to keep get beat by thirty tomorrow night. And I'm gonna call my tar heel fans mess with them about it. That's what sports are about. Man. You gotta you gotta be willing to you. Gotta pull against somebody as much as you pull four somebody then had to be ugly. Right. I don't want somebody to get. I don't wanna tar heel player get hurt. I don't wanna tar heel player to you know, when all that scandal was going on with their education, and you know, where they skipping class and all that was horrible. Like, I I don't I don't want that. I just want them to lose competitively. So you have to buy exposing the drivers to to the fans they're gonna like them or not like him. And that's great. That's what it's about. But it's so drivers responsibility to be who they are. It's our responsibility in nascar's responsibility to present them, and then it's a driver's responsibility in their team to to to be successful or not. And then when that opportunity rises, I think last year part of the issue was. So much of the regular season was Kevin Harvick Kyle Busch. Mark Drake's junior winning. And obviously chase Elliott. Ryan blaney. Eric jones. Alex. Pick wherever you want. They weren't winning. But then when somebody finally did break through Eric Jones at Daytona to some degree, you know, he'd beat true on that final restart. But to me, the real big one was to your point Jeff that really illustrates. It is chase Elliott drives maybe the race of his life. At Watkins Glen beats Martin tricks junior heads up on those final ten laps and it wrote itself..

"It's it's got we've got to protect them investigation. You're right. I was very worried about this in in two thousand sixteen because the president took a public stage in July and encouraged Russia to cyber hack the election at the same time as my son in his entire battalion were deployed helping allies on the border of Russia. Protect themselves against Russian aggression. I found that highly unusual for any American much less somebody who wanted to be president. But now what we have is more nearly one hundred documented instances of ties between the Trump campaign transition and administration with Russia bazaar failure to be honest about meetings. And now this. Education. The President Trump has gone to unusual lengths to hide the content discussions with Vladimir Putin. But the right answer as you suggest it is to protect the Muller investigation at all costs. Let it gets to its end. Make sure that the results are made. Are you concerned side? Are you concerned though that the FBI look like at overreacted in trying to investigate a sitting president this? This is a pretty alarming investigation that the city president was acting against the interests of of the United States of America. Well, I flip the question around shock. I think it's less did the FBI overreact. I think the question is this they had to have a very deep level of concern about this president to take this staff. And that's again, why we need to protect the Muller investigation. And I think that's going to be a critical issue in the judiciary committee hearings about the attorney general nominee would you guarantee to protect this investigation. And will you make sure that the American public and congress get the results of it? Senator Tim Kaine. Democrat from Virginia. I have to let you go there. Thanks for coming on onto views. Scher absolute. When we come back. We're going to have more on that story about Russia. The FBI and President Trump talked to Michael Schmidt. He's one of the New York Times. Reporters broke the story in NBC news legal analyst Benowitz on why this store maybe even bigger than. Welcome back. We're going to dig a little deeper into the New York Times story about President Trump and Russia, frankly, we think it deserves an explainer. So with me now, Michael Schmidt, one of the reporters who broke the story about the counterintelligence investigation into whether Mr. Trump as sitting president was working as an agent for Russian. We also have been with us. He's an NBC news legal analyst editor in chief of the national security. Bog law actually worked with Mr Schmitt on this story, gentlemen? Welcome to both of you. So michael. Walk us through the piece here the designation is a counterintelligence investigation. We've always thought of the Komi firing and the Muller aspect is simply obstruction of Justice as sort of separate, but we're calling counterintelligence and it's a bit confusing. Why? So it was a two pronged investigation. It had a criminal aspect did the president break the law in trying to obstruct the investigation interfere with it and this other Russia question, and it's important as as you said because our collective understanding was much narrower. It was just on instruction did the president break the law there. And now, we know that it was for broader at had national security concerns. The FBI was afraid that the firing of Komi was a way to help the Russians. Stop the FBI from figuring out what they did in the election. Are they is this still a counterintelligence investigation to whether Mr. Trump himself is acting as a Russian agent. That with the Muller probe inherited. We know the Muller probe inherited it, we know the Muller profe- spent an enormous amount of time trying to figure out what the president has done in office in regards to the investigation his interference with if talked all these White House officials do we know if there is still this belief in aspect at the president's working for the Russians I can't answer that. All right been. This was all the base sort of not of the scoop by the time it was based on testimony by now a former FBI general counsel James Baker. And this is what he told congress. And this was in the New York Times story about why viewed it as counterintelligence he said this not only would it be an issue of obstructing investigation..
