Rep. Jim Jordan on the Implications of Big Tech Breakup Bills
"Break up hills, which aren't those at all Like you said. They're just using that to get us on board. My fear is they're going to take that from the private sector and now enshrined that with government regulators who are going to use these big tech break up bills to then use the power of government to make sure private companies out there. Doing things against the shareholder interest. And think about how many pension funds are invested in these companies that are now going to be pressured to basically lose money and screw your pension over under the guise of big tech breakup. Yeah, we've already seen this. This play in action with what we just referred to when you had a major big tech company, the CEO of the head of that company. Communicating via email with the guy who runs a big agency who is the highest paid official in the government with Dr Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg colluding to keep information from the American people last year information that frankly, looks like it turns out to be it was the truth, and they kept the truth from us. So now we're going to say Lina Khan, who just got appointed to to chair the FTC, You know where she just got to point this week. So that's my Federal Trade Commission where all this power is going to go. Guess who she worked for. Before she went there. She worked for Jerry Nadler. David Cicilline E on the House student Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee. Do you think she really wants to make sure that that these big tech platforms don't censor Dan Bongino? So that's what this is all all about. I mean, and you're exactly right. The one of the other empty stairs chairs is, um, Democrat is Becca Slaughter, and she has said, we should use anti trust laws to stop systemic racism. What? So you're that's where they want to go with this, And that's what I fear. Let's do this. Let's let's let's change checks in 2 30 so that you take away their liability protection and let's break them up. Let's break him up. Yeah, but you've got to make sure they don't get this liability protection. So not not make not make this union between big government and big tech so they can further harm us. Yeah, a couple of additional points in

"Oh same same. I was totally there too. You know it's almost like your condition. And i think that it's true of probably large corporate jobs but i think within the direct sales industry. No you really see that people on stage you know everything is really about your next pin or your next leadership position and you almost feel like well. You know if i'm not hitting the next level then yeah like who am i. Yeah totally he i. I can relate so much that he had a conversation with me. And i wasn't sure like are you calling us out of. That's what we have been together the whole time. We've been together almost and it's our sole source of income. I was like what are you. What's going on there. So i can so relate to that and another thing that i think is really a profound and should be talked about. I mean i think. A most entrepreneurs are workaholics. I think it goes with the territory like you eat. Breathe and sleep creating. it's just kind of a it's in our dna But that can very easily take over and and you can take over and as believers as women that really want to fulfill our god given A not just are the assignment we make ourselves. It is for me anyway. I'll speak about myself for me. It is a daily disciplined to keep me down and keep him at the forefront I think it gets easier because now it's a habit but in the beginning when was learning this it was a very kind of awkward and clunky way to kind of put like okay. Is this me or is this something. That i'm moving forward because i wanted or is it something that got calling me too so i would love to hear your kind of your take on. Yeah so i would say my my take is just a touch different in my verbiage but is probably the same thing in that. I believe that we are so intimately connected to the holy spirit and to god and like. There's this whole debate. Like where do i stop and he starts right but if we can get like nyc were so intimately connected which really comes through that secret place. The intimate time together then. I don't have to worry about that as much. And that. I can't like it's impossible for me to really get ahead of god if that sense like really staying What i would call like in the vine. And i think that teaching women how to lean into that and know that there's nothing that can separate you and it's you guys like your co creating with god and because i do think women sometimes can we can really or enterpreneurs like a beat ourselves up. You know like at will not doing this right. You get another. We make it another thing. And so i think for me. It's more about like tuning into. Hey lindsay winner you trying to force things. Trying to make things happen versus winner you versus surrendering and trusting but the how is really not up to you..

Democrats Push to Expand Supreme Court From 9 to 13 Justices
"A bill today that would expand the U. S Supreme Court from 9 to 13 justice is the effort is being led by a Massachusetts senator Ed Markey, and in the House, New York congressman Jerrold Nadler. NBC News reports. It's unlikely to become law in the near future, with many lawmakers opposing the idea and slim Democratic majorities in both chambers.

Haitians in Tijuana Seek to Enter U.S.
"Life at sea, with everyone everywhere when it comes to the migrant crisis at the border. Ah lot of attention has been focused on Central Americans, but people from other parts of the world have come to Mexican border cities like Tijuana. Seeking to try to cross to the U. S. For asylum That includes people from Haiti from San Diego. Here's KPBS reporter Max Rivlin. Nadler, a community of Haitian migrants has been into Quanah for nearly a decade, fleeing a devastating earthquake, hurricanes, financial collapse and now deep political instability and violence as an unpopular president. Tries to hold on to power in Porta Prince. Many Haitians are stuck in Tijuana, fearful that by crossing the border, they'll be sent right back to Haiti. But unable to make a life for themselves in Mexico. When a migrant camp was established in February at the El Chapo to our port of entry in Tijuana, hundreds of Haitians set up tents, hoping that they would soon be allowed to declare asylum in the U. S. You're the only Ito was one of them. He'd been living in Tijuana for a year. I'm looking at here, Dia.

Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

Trump set to miss required deadline for 2021 refugee quota.
"Trump administration appears to be ignoring a deadline to establish how many refugees will be allowed into the United States next year raising uncertainty about the future of the forty year old resettlement program that has been dwindling under his administration. The Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty Refugee Act requires presidents to issue that determination before October first the start of the fiscal year. With only hours to go on Wednesday, the trump administration had not sheduled consultations with Congress that required before setting the annual figure. There was no immediate comment from the White House, which usually announces the target numbers or the departments of State or Homeland Security which were involved in making the determination. Democratic lawmakers blasted the administration for not meeting its obligation. Trump's violation of the nineteen eighty law will bring our refugee admissions program to a halt leaving thousands stranded abroad with their lives at risk New York representatives Jerry Nadler, who is chairman of the House Judiciary? Committee? Trump froze this year's admissions in March falsely citing a needs to protect American jobs as fall-outs from the corona virus crashed the economy. Advocates fear the government is intentionally delaying its plans for the twenty twenty one fiscal year as a way to eventually eliminate the refugee program. No more refugees can be admitted after Thursday until the president sets the ceiling for the New Year Secretary of State Mike. Pompeo said the administration is committed to the country's history of leading the world in providing a safe place for refugees. But advocates say the government's actions do not show that in addition the State Department announced last week it would no longer provide some statistical information on refugee resettlement sparking more concerns advocates say the trump administration is dismantling a program that has long enjoyed bipartisan support and has been considered a model for protecting the world's most vulnerable people.
The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act. What about the other companies? Amazon that also has incredible market share. Can you first catalogue just how big Amazon is and how much bigger it's gotten since the current virus epidemic? Yeah, you know, the Amazon has closed in on the market cap of 1.5 trillion They have 280 billion in revenue. They have increased dramatically. Actually, stock prices increased since the beginning of the Corona virus by I don't know the exact percentage don't want to get it wrong, but by a tremendous amount, in fact, And there was one day in which Jeff Bezos gained $13 billion personally, so they are the biggest of big attack for the first part of hearing they didn't get any questions, but representative Dia Paul brought it in accusing them. Of lying in front of Congress about how they treat third party sellers and pressing bass. Those hard on how he runs his marketplace. So they they, they've got some of they've got some fire. Coming in. Yeah, I guess the problem. There is not only well they sell, you know products from third parties always there slow selling their own products, and so they are. I guess in competition with 1/3 party supplies on their own platform. How does that work? I mean, that's I think the acquisition or the problem is that people worry that Amazon has become more or less the dominant online retailer. They have some competition Homer, but you know, more or less dominant. So you make it on Amazon are Or you don't make it at all. And if that's the marketplace, the prospect of You come up with successful thing? I don't know Better mousetrap, and then Amazon makes their own copy of it. So the Amazon version of it and then sells it for less. You know, that turns into a sucker's game, and I think that's been the main complaint about Amazon is ah, less that they You know about their competitors or something but more that they have turned the marketplace into something of a rigged game for their own products. Right and a sweet noted Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man. Right now, the company is you outline is just so big. It's hard to even wrap your mind around it. Is there any way you could break up Amazon or hasn't just become too big to break up? That's a good question. You know, it hasn't been subject to a lot of discussion, probably for the reasons you suggest. Most of scrutiny of Amazon is how they treat the marketplace. I think for a true old school antitrust type who just believes that too much power to concentrated should always be broken. Would want to switch, you know, break Amazon into some kind of pieces. One way might be to break off their Web services division, which is a dominant in its space. You could also imagine, as with it and t breaking it into baby Amazons. I guess that are supposed to compete with each other. But I know it hasn't been unlike Facebook and even Google. Has been talks about how would you break them up? Think Amazon. It's been more about can they? Can you get them to run their at their market place better? And then Google. Obviously a search giant and it's become a verb. It's such an intimate part of who we are at this point again. How would you break up Google if you could It's a good question. Let me let me say that Google has come under fire this hearing both from Sicily knee on the idea that they are essentially eating their ecosystem That is to say. You know if you if you like like with Amazon actually similar that if You know, you could come up with a really successful Web service of some kind in your sort of small enough that Google will make a version of it and then send all the traffic to it so that that's the accusation against them. As for you know, what would you do to Google one You could say, don't do that. That's what the Europeans are trying to dio. Another would be to say, Well, listen, it Google, you run the search part and just leave it there. Don't do everything else. Okay. Maybe run Gmail, maybe right maps. But all these other little things that are just clones of other companies. Stay out of that, or make them be independent companies. I should add. By the way, there's you know, I'm maybe we get to this, but there's been AH, Google face us a lot of Republicans during the hearing, talking about different issues. Trying to get Google to admit that it Ah Is too friendly to China. Eyes too unfriendly to the US Pentagon. That's been another theme of this hearing is that I think should be mentioned. Well, you bring up China, and I guess the argument against breaking up these companies is that they're competing against Chinese companies, which In many cases have the backing of the state and there's there's no limit to their monopolistic practices. And so if these are global companies, should there be different rules when it comes to monopoly now than there were, you know, back in the 19th century. Yeah. Or the 20th? Yeah, that is the argument. So you know, kind of goes like this. If you break up Facebook or make fix books, life difficulty the Chinese will take over. It's kind of a national champion like argument. So we have to have our guys. Um I don't find it convincing at all. Last time we heard that kind of argument was when Japan was the all great mighty power that was going to take over everything in America. And they said it so you can't break up the tea and you can't break up IBM. I think we've had a better track record. Forcing American companies to be competitive. It's not breaking them up, at least putting him under heavy scrutiny like Microsoft and hoping a new generation arises. So yeah, I think that's a pretty lame excuse not to enforce the law that put it that way. So what do you think is going to come out of this? You know, I think from what I've heard there was some documents that were coming out of this that nobody has seen. And I think they put more pressure on the administration and also the states to file complaints. I would not be surprised if Google ends up on the receiving end of an antitrust complaint before November. And after this hearing, I wonder of Facebook's gonna get 12 or whether that's going to be something that the election decides. But, yes, I think it adds to the pressure to file actual cases as opposed to talking about it.
The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act.

Nadler says mob violence is a myth
"So Bill bars getting grilled by the House today as some committee on his response to the federal response to the violent demonstrations and rioters over the past few months. Nadler did everything but carry the water for the rioters earlier today. You really can't hide behind legal fictions this time, Mr Barr. It's all out in the open, where people can see what you're doing for themselves. The president wants footage for his campaign ads. And you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered.

"Twenty all my gosh this is pretty wild all the impeachment stuff is pretty wild I don't see the Democrats doing well at all as of today and now I understand why Jerry Nadler was not allowed to leave the house impeachment instigation because Jerry Nadler it was amazing Jerry Nadler was amazing and transparent in telling the United States Senate and all of its senators that if you do not vote my way you are now on American and he also called him a liar and this is a this is amazing and John Roberts was nice Chief Justice John Roberts who literally has almost no role in this even though he he does but he doesn't anything he decides can be overruled by the Senate a simple majority the Senate so he says you can do that your need to step down and the fifty one senators vote he's wrong he's he's done so he has he done with that he'll be overlooked that so he has very little power honestly almost no power whatsoever but he admonished them and nobody wants to look bad like that so he said both of you which will play all the highlights of that in a second but the big deal here is that he was obviously admonishing Nadler for saying that their treat their traitorous traders here I'll I'm gonna play this for you because this is this is really incredible but never did last night we should be surprised that here in the United States Senate actually I should say this morning right executive producer Chris the greatest a limited body in the world we we are expected to put our oath of office ahead of political expediency by the way he says the greatest but deliberate about in the world sort of which he already knowledge is it it's not like he doesn't acknowledging still says you're a bunch of friggin American trainer if if you don't vote my way listen where we expected to be honest where we are expected to protect the interests of the American people we should be surprised shocked that any senator would vote to block this witness or any relevant witness who might shed additional light on the president's obvious misconduct he's talking about voting against sipping a Bolton will you vote to allow all of the relevant evidence to be presented here well you betray your pledge to be an impartial juror would you bring ambassador both in here will you permit us to present you with the entire record of the president's misconduct what will you instead choose to be complicit in the president's cover up okay so you're you're complicit in a cover up or go back a second would you bring ambassador both in here would you permit us to present you with the entire record of the press is misconduct or will you instead choose to be complicit in the president's cover up so far I'm sad to say I see a lot of senators voting for a cover up he is sharing them this short squat weevil wobble is that sure is like that isn't that character angry from what was that the card doubles at the movie we all saw I saw I saw which **** the emotions that are in your head and you know they the guy was anger the guy was angry guy whatever he would freak out at the flames come out of it said that movie I remember what it is is a dream works with what that was a big one he's like that guy and it's amazing he thinks he can come to their house and tell them what to do it shows you the arrogance and the blindness of these folks voting to deny witnesses absolutely indefensible vote obviously a treacherous about a travel to vote against an honest consideration of the evidence of the against the president a vote against an honest trial a vote against the United States you're on American your body against the US if you don't fall my way I'm in your house telling you I'm telling you you're covering up if you don't go my way are the you want the truth or you and you must permit the witnesses or you want a shameful cover up history will judge and so the electorate area go you wanna shameful cover up because you voted against me is what he said I'll play the rebuttals from mom I got the secular and simple only rebuttals but I will play the Moblin optimize will kind of give you the context so simple only what next executive producer Chris right on make sure I get this and write or sit baloney the president's lead counsel I want but first we've been respectful of the Senate we've made our arguments to you and you don't deserve and we don't deserve what just happened Mister Nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team he made false allegations against all of you he accused you of a cover up he's been making false allegations against the president the only one who should be embarrassed Mister Nadler is you for the way you've addressed this body this is the United States Senate you're not in charge here Hey in the J. secular the president's counsel's well German Nadler talked about treacherous at about twelve ten AM January twenty second the chairman of the Judiciary Committee if this body on the floor of the Senate said executive privilege and other nonsense now think about that for a moment executive privilege and other nonsense Mr number is not nonsense these are privileges recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States that is winning that is winning Jay Sekulow continued the constitution doesn't allow which is the place what we've dealt with for the last now thirteen hours now that is a good one right in local we've dealt with this man just use my brain this piece of evidence this man right here behold look what we've been doing he should have been say look we've been dealing with for three years and we hopefully are closing the proceedings but not on a very high note only guilty people try to hide evidence so I guess when president Obama instructed Attorney General do not give information he was guilty of a crime that's the way it works pause it right there bring is that what you were United States constitution because that's not the way it was written that is not the way it's interpreted and is not the way the American people should have to live I'll tell you what's treacherous come to the floor of the Senate and say executive privilege and other nonsense we are the rest of our time I like it and then George Roberts comes out admonishes which is a a warning I think it is appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the house managers and the president's council in equal terms I had to remember that they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body one reason it has earned that title is because its members avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil discourse in the nineteen oh five swing trial of senator objected when one of the managers use the word petty **** and the presiding officer said the word ought not to have been used I don't think we need to see a spire to that higher standard but I do think those addressing the Senate should remember where they are talking by the way is placing undue.

George Mason one Malla ministration now shortly before the constitutional convention had rejected hi misdemeanors that phrase a phrase that they pulled out of English common law they rejected it in another context because it had a technical meeting to limited so that adaption of high crimes and misdemeanors exhibits and intend to embrace the limited technical meeting of the words for purposes of impeachment that consequence would attach in any event for use of a technical term fully ascertain by the commoners civil law would require a reference to the law for its purpose precise meaning I know this gets a little complicated but we need to talk about this if high crimes and misdemeanors had an ascertainable content at the time the constitution was adopted that content furnishes the boundaries of the power the boundaries I'm the power it is no more open the Congress the stray beyond those boundaries there it is to include in the companion word bribery an offense such as robbery which had a quite different meaning back then and in common law the design of the framers to good for a limited power is confirmed by the rejection of removal by address removal by address had no limits we okay so far so the language is intended to be limited and limiting not brought even so some on easiness apparently was excited by the breadth of the power in other words even some were concerned that this provided but Khan was too much power with the president for there were repeated assurances that impeachment was meant only for quote great injuries on quote great misdemeanors on quote James Erindale later a Supreme Court justice told the North Carolina convention that the occasion for Texas size I'd is impeachment will arise from acts of great injury to the community impeachment said governor Johnston in that convention is a mode of trial pointed out for great misdemeanors against the public the peaks of the English practice the peaks of the English practice which is what the framers looked at we're familiar to the founders in the federal convention the constitutional convention George Mason said corruption would be impeachable what I'm Mara Segre that corruption and some few other offenses or to be impeachable Madison added that the protection against the negligence of perfidy of the chief magistrate were indispensable the president said Madison might pervert his administration into a scheme at perk elation or oppression he might betray stressful foreign power MRS added that he may be Brian to be traced trust in the Virginia ratification convention James Madison stated that if the president be connected in any suspicious manner with any person there be grounds to believe that he will shelter him he may be impeached he also stated that where the president to commit anything sort trash trucks it's it's a summit only a few states that is senators to consider a treaty at the exclusion of others we'll be in page for misbehavior and so they had numerous examples now moving around this is a rather complex and lengthy book but leave it to me to handle the scholarship in a comment on the report of the resolution for the impeachment of justice William O. Douglas introduced in the house of representatives April sixteenth nineteen seventy by congressman Gerald R. Ford Elton four states that one hundred and ten sponsors of the anti Douglas resolution are conservative Republicans and Dixiecrats this seems persuasive evidence in support of the hypothesis he wrote which virtually everyone watched him accepts that the undertaking seeks not simply to impeach William O. Douglas but to discredit the liberalism inherent in the domestic programs of democratic administration since the new deal did you hear that let's bring this up to modern day the reason they want to impeach trump is in part due to their hate for Donald Trump and his election but it is to stop his agenda his appointment of constitution was to the court his attempt to secure the border is building up in the United States military his support for law enforcement I know my other policy objectives the purpose of attempting to impeach or lead up to the impeachment of Donald Trump is not just about Donald Trump who they hate it is about his agenda that they hate it's about the fact that selection that they hate the point is that impeachment is not supposed to just be about politics and the political winds are the majority party in the house there's serious real limiting language in our constitution I know it's Friday I know I'm supposed to talk about what now congressman Ford all but conceded that his resolution was in retaliation for the Senate's rejection of to a president Nixon's nominees to the Supreme Court but that's not what impeachment is supposed to be about is it ladies and gentleman now I'm going to continue I'm gonna continue I know what substantive I know what Scully I know its history but I know you're the smartest audience of all audiences in America I think this is crucially important we're setting the foundation to prove at the Democrats in the house and the Mister Nadler in particular I rolled public officials who are violating the constitution who are violating the impeachment clause in the purpose of impeachment as they wave around the constitution and walked towards impeachment you cannot just impeach somebody for political purposes that language has meaning any committee chairman of a committee cannot break go to court and make claims for grand jury information because they possibly might pursue impeachment a single committee doesn't get to make that decision you wanna know why ladies and gentleman because it's the full house of representatives that are supposed to represent the people and the Congress on the whole that's supposed to represent the people not that clowns of miscreants and malcontents who make up the majority on the house Judiciary Committee I'll be right back then Washington's mall W.

I don't think about Al Qaeda and the only killed three thousand people on nine eleven. No, it goes far beyond that the number of police officers and firefighters. First responders that have fallen ill have died, or they are going to die, or lives that have been so ill affected, because of health issues. And I don't know why we have to go through this. I don't know why this has to be dragged out where congress could not establish permanent funding to compensate and help with the medical payments and the health issues of these first responders, this ought to be involuntary. This should be a no brainer. By the way, I played, some John Stewart. I want to finish up with just the, the rest of the audio cut that I was playing at the end of last hour. This is the House Judiciary committee. This is Gerald Nadler's committee. You know, as I looked at the video, and you can see the camera right in front of John Stewart on C span. And then they'll show the, the, the shot from behind John Stewart shoulder to the dais, where the house of representatives of the, the, the, the committee members in the house are seated, and you see all the empty seats in this day. I don't know if I saw Jerry Nadler, there, I was looking to see when they have the reverse shot looking out at the day, whether nether was even sitting there. I don't think he was. And Jerry Nadler is the chairman of the House Judiciary committee, because the Democrats, obviously, hold all the committees because there, you know running the house these days. And keep in mind, the Jerry Nadler is a house of representatives member. And committee chair from Manhattan. He is from the Upper West side. His district includes the Upper West side of Manhattan. I don't even think he was at this, this committee hearing, which is disgraced stack.

I think this shows you just how insane it is right now with the far left Democrats who just want impeachment because, look, we know all the answers are because Muller did an investigation that is much more thorough than congress can ever do. There's nothing there. They just wished to have a battle with the White House, I think to keep their base to keep their base going. And I think, you know, except for maybe a couple of comments White House, just let them battle between themselves. But yeah, I think Kimberley strassel when she did an article that was about two weeks ago in the Wall Street Journal, what does Nadler really want and at the end of it. She points out all through. Out that article, but the at the end came to the conclusion, it's about the show Nadler, just wants the show. He asked to show they have to show the far left right now that they're fighting, but they're not going to bring it to a vote on impeachment. That's not gonna happen. That is not going to happen. They'll, they'll talk about it. But here's the thing. They it's, it's just like the cavenaugh proceedings with the cavenaugh hearings. I talked about how the far left can get away with that camel. Hairs can get away with that in her state. Right. Anybody in the house can get away with a number of things in their own district? What they don't think about is the negative effect on their party during a presidential cycle that's going to happen. That's definitely going to happen. They don't think in those terms though, they think about appeasing the far left, but the negative effect is building people in the middle that are more and more support in support.

Let's go to Trump at the airport. Look after a long investigation. After so many people have been so badly hurt after looking at the other side. A lot of bad things happened a lot of horrible things happen. A lot of very bad things happen for our country. It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia. The most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia. There was no obstruction. None whatsoever. It was a complete and total exoneration that last part ticked everyone off. But nothing he said prior to that is unreasonable or should be for anybody. If they trust the process. Remember there were there were some reporters accusing this guy of being a Manchurian candidate since one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. I just I just got to get that point in.

"One subpoenas. And. This statement from Jerry Nadler. We have to get the facts, we will see where the facts lead. Maybe that'll lead to impeachment. Maybe it won't. This is taking on an aroma or an air where did this come from? Jiji giving boxes of Kleenex just magically appeared. Right. I did. So these replaced in here over the break when I didn't even notice they were. Very very now. No, that's fine. The fact that two boxes get up here with my back turned, and I don't even know it. What if there was a knife? Anyway. So. Muller and his investigation are open ended. There's no crime specified, which is violation of Justice department regulations. So mother had free rein to go. Find a crime baller had free. Rein to go make up a crime. And he made up a bunch of we created a bunch of process crimes to nab a bunch of witnesses any of the indictments that Muller has announced as any relationship to Donald Trump referenced. So now here comes Nadler doing the same thing. Jerry, Nadler says we have to get the facts. We'll see where the facts lead. Maybe that'll lead you impatient. Maybe it won't. Wait a minute. If there aren't any facts, then why are you doing this? Just like with Muller. He wasn't given a crime. And so this special counsel investigation became a counter intelligence investigation in counter intelligence investigations, do not seek out crimes. Which is why this whole thing has been a gigantic hoax. But. When did it start just because you don't like somebody, you can begin mass subpoena requests? To get the facts. After all of this after everything that has gone on a pass to two and a half years Nadler admits he doesn't have the facts. They are so ticked off that Muller. Apparently hasn't come up with anything that they're now saying well Muller scope was much narrower than ours. In one sense. That's true. But Muller's investigation would have a little bit more. Leeway than theirs will accept eighty one. And he's just getting started. He's promising to go after Vonk. Down the road and others. But this is. This is crazy we've gone for two years of investigation. And a campaign where everybody and their brother was out to find dirt on Donald Trump and all they came up with was that access Hollywood tape. Two years, FOX. And there's nothing they haven't found a thing on Donald Trump. And they're gonna keep looking precisely because they don't have anything. This is not the way things happen in a Representative Republic or a democracy. This is not at all you at least have to have some indication that wrongdoing is taken place before you start pursuing it. I think they're gonna make.

"Just flipped this morning. Because starting today, everyone is officially on Muller. Watch. Because Justice department officials had told us do not expect anything in February. Well, guess what? It's the first week of March it could drop starting today. And whether it's today or next week or next month. Let's go for how this would actually work. Robert Muller would wrap up his investigation into Russian election interference. He would make report and would send it to his boss attorney general William bar and bar is actually the only person the only one who's entitled to see those findings. The attorney general gets to decide what to tell the public about them. He even gets to decide what to tell congress. So he'll send his report and that includes anything less than Muller's unredacted findings. You can expect a war that would drag on for weeks, months, even years. Well, we will obviously subpoena. The report we will bring Bob Muller into testify before congress. We will take to court if necessary Democrats likely soon for more information Republicans could ask for more information about stuff they want to hear about wiretaps and lead deals say Trump's name is not even mentioned in the report. And that's a real possibility bar has said prosecutors shouldn't talk about somebody who's not getting indicted, and guess what? He also said you can't really indict a sitting president. So. So Democrats could try to subpoena Muller himself and the White House could look at its options for executive privilege that could go down at any moment. Meanwhile, other investigations continue including in congress. I think that they are still a number sue fused to drop. I think as more and you've seen some of them coming sled the house oversight committee proceedings last week with Michael Cohen be intimidated or threatened by the president Adam chef you've heard of him in the house intelligence committee. But the guy who could imperil the White House. The most is a five foot four congressman from Brooklyn who runs the powerful House Judiciary committee. The Republicans spent two years shielding the president from any proper accountability. Yesterday chairman Jerry Nadler, join George Stephanopoulos on ABC's this week where he made a ton of news. He said Michael Cohen testimony raises questions about potential crimes today Nadler says he is sending official request for documents from dozens of Trump associates from the White House to the department of Justice, Donald Trump junior. Allen Weisselberg, let's bring in ABC's White House. Correspondent Tara Palmeri? She is where else at the White House right now because he never seems to leave. Request for documents. Like, how big is the deal is a request for documents, you disarm, everyone is already spilled their guts to federal agents. Well, they certainly haven't spilled their guts publicly in providing the cop of a thirty five thousand dollar check that President Trump personally signed Michael Cohen was the first high profile public hearing that we've seen of a close Trump associate to see his son testify publicly Donald Trump junior. That would be huge. His daughter Ivanka Trump, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and the members of the inner circle and a lot of the questions that they have don't necessarily relate to the Muller investigation. But to the southern district of New York's investigation into criminal activity regarding the election. Well, what kind of documents is asking for though, like what Ella Gatien's is Nadler, hoping he could actually prove these talking about business receipts for how they inflated or deflated income and don't forget Brad that there is a big difference between the Muller investigation, which is focused on obstruction of Justice and. Russian collusion, and Jerry Nadler, who's the head of the judiciary committee, which essentially has the power to start impeachment hearing, do you think the president struck injustice? Yes, I do. If it's very clear that the president struck the Justice, you tear one thing that's dug out to meet. Now. Luke says he already thinks the president has obstructed Justice. He didn't say anything from Robert Muller to that effect. So I mean, what is the point of saying that if you're not backing it up with new evidence Jerry Nadler off the bat that of crime is not necessarily an impeachable offense that can be crimes at nine impeachable offenses and impeachable offenses in crimes just two different tests. He's trying to link the American public why they would take that extreme action..
