Devin Nunes on the FBI and the 'Get Trump' Investigation

"You Devin, and tell me if I'm stupid for feeling this. If the bureau knocked on my door tonight, I would say, you got to talk to my stinking lawyers. I'm not talking to you. I don't trust them. So how much of a problem is the bureau even after the people you were battling have left the building? After the subpoenas, let's talk about the subpoenas. I've long suspected that there's been a unit operating within the FBI. And after the Mar-a-Lago rate, it came out that it had to be. So like a dirty tricks unit. Yeah, very sophisticated unit. So remember what they did to hide this from Congress and from the American public is they kept this investigation, I'll just call it the get Trump investigation. They kept it within the national security division. Then they kept it even tighter in what's called counter intelligence, which is super tightly hell. Yes. So they figured out how to create these essentially Gestapo teams within DoJ and the FBI. There's no question. I mean, after Mar-a-Lago, there was zero question that that was going on because it's impossible that all the same people that are like Forrest Gump end up showing up in all the same, you know, all these crooked places. I mean, ends up in Mar-a-Lago. Right. Right, the people who did the Mar-a-Lago raid. I'm just saying reportedly, we don't know how much of this is true so far, but we're on the molar team. The Mueller witch hunt team, remember, and they're on the Mueller witch hunt team after everybody knows and Mueller knew the first day I said, the first day that SOB walked into the building and became the special counsel. He knew it was all a hoax.

Kash Patel: The FBI Is Covering up Their Own Corruption

"One of the one of the questions left unanswered that the media has been unsurprisingly not curious about is we don't yet know what those documents were Some of those documents couldn't be evidence of the FBI's plot against Donald Trump throwing spygate their effort to spy on Donald Trump using a false premise We don't know any of that They don't know that either These media folks haven't seen the documents They're kind of jumping to conclusions here right I mean we were told they were nuclear secrets that seemed to disappear I'd like to see what those documents actually say Yeah look you and me both you know and Devin and I ran the Russia gate to spygate scandal As you called it we put out about 60% of the documents lawfully We were able to get them out while we were in Congress So when president Trump came in long story short he said let's be classified everything else and get it out to the American people And the reason there has been a years long cover up because it's what's under those 40% of those pages that shows even more corruption than we were able to expose And what president Trump did on the way out of The White House is issue multiple declassification orders regarding these documents And look the same government gangsters that were my bosses in the national security division 6 7 8 years ago are now the number two and three at FBI And the guys that worked under struck in precept and mccabe and Comey are all running the counterintelligence division These guys I've always said since day one are covering up their corruption Just like they did during Russia gate and they ginned up a politically led investigation to say what up we have a counterintelligence investigation folks We can't ever turn over the documents not to you not to Congress You're not going to see them And they do this repeatedly They cover up their own corruption because they are that evil They know what's in them And I know what's in them But we can say anything because they'll say oh you leave classified information

The 4th Amendment Is There to Protect You

"So we're talking about the Fourth Amendment which applies to you too Permitting agents they write in this motion To seize boxes of documents merely because they are physically found together with boxes of other items But partly within the scope of the warrant it's clearly over broad And they cite to both circuit and Supreme Court precedents of which there's a ton So remember this is here to protect you The Fourth Amendment is there to protect you Boxes of personal documents photographs items such as clothing or by definition not contraband They must not be lawfully seized In fact the search warrants broad scope was in violation of the Fourth Amendment's particularity requirement Where'd you hear that first And that's the warrant permitted a general search prohibited his unconstitutional Since red coated soldiers created the need for the requirement in the first place The investigation regarding president Trump's return to the 15 archives boxes involved a referral to the Department of Justice based on questions relating to documents falling within the president's records act But the PRA accords the president virtually complete control over his records during his term of office There is no criminal enforcement mechanism or penalty The Department of Justice national security division recognized that deficiency and the decide to recategorize this case is relating to national security materials This is a brilliant point Simply to manufacture a basis to seek a search warrant

John was the national security division AEG. John was on the call, but I preface a call by saying, John, we need you to stay in place. National security is too important. We need to minimize disruption, whether you resign is entirely up to you. Obviously, we're respected decision either way but I'm asking you, please stay in place. And he did. So I don't want to leave the impression that he was not willing to respond. Thank you. So with regard to entering the Oval Office, I was sitting in the hallway. An administrative assistant passed by, she asked me, are you supposed to be in this meeting with the president? I said, no, I'm simply hearing face questions come up that other people don't have the answer to. And she walked away and they came back, probably 30 seconds later instead of the president wants you in the lead. I proceed into the Oval Office. I took probably two or three steps in and I stopped because I was as the AG said, not exactly properly attired. I was wearing jeans and muddy boots and army T-shirt. And I never would arrive in the Oval Office this way I said, mister president, I apologize. I'm sorry. I didn't know it was going to be here. And he said, no, no, no, just come in, come and come in. And so I went in, I attempted to take a seat on one of the couches behind the chairs, right in front of the president's desk. And he said, no, no, no. You're going to be up here.

"Cause. We're back with heritage senior distinguished fellow. You can join heritage with heritage, Mark Morgan, former commissioner for the Trump administration for CBP. He served in the military. He's served in the FBI. He has, well, he is, 'cause marines never really retire. There is no such thing as an ex marine. So gonna get your response Mark. This is Oliver North another great marine who had something to say about people in the military being punished because I guess their body isn't their body anymore. Cut 11. Well, if you start discharging people that we need in the service, right now, the army is paying the maximum premium that they can to recruit people into the United States Army. This is not the time to be throwing people out of the army just because they would not take this vaccine. I don't see how that improves readiness whatsoever. And Congress had to stand up and say, you can't do it. We reported last week air force officer officially reprimanded on her record by her commander because despite being allergic to the vaccine, she she's not allowed to say I can't take it. So as a former marine as somebody who has served this nation for decades, your reaction to these policies from the Biden administration. Yeah, I tell you what. I'm right with former lieutenant Carl Oliver North. I think he's right on this. I think it does not enhance our readiness. I think it erodes the readiness. And I got to tell you, I know these individuals. Some of these have dedicated ten, 15 years of their life, all of us in faithful service to this country. They sacrifice a lot. Their families have sacrificed a lot. And this, at the end of the day, some of them have served in a war zone, have sacrificed so much and this is what they utilize to kick them out of the military. It's nonsensical. It's talk about unpatriotic.

"There's a lot to cover here ladies and gentlemen The national school boards association did coordinate with The White House and the Department of Justice Before sending its memo and I knew it did Which is why on this program while on Hannity I said the circumstance of that memo coming out 5 days after the letter was sent to the president of the United States Told me that there was coordination How he sounded mister producer okay All right just want to make sure October 5 2021 cut three go Local police officers And school board security officers are in charge of keeping the peace in township and community school board meetings Not the Federal Bureau of Investigation not the criminal division of the Justice Department not the civil rights division not the U.S. attorney's office and on and on and on Let alone the national security division They have decided ladies and gentlemen that those of you who protest are domestic terrorists The letter from the national school board association in my view was an inside job They wrote this letter to the president of the United States Joe Biden on September 29 and 5 days later Including the weekend we get a memo from the attorney general of the United States dated yesterday To the director of the FBI the director of the executive officer U.S. attorneys the assistant attorney general criminal division You know I would encourage and I mean this in all sincerity The news divisions at Fox on the news divisions at all other so called conservative media or at least not cook media To pay attention to this radio show Whether was March 2nd 2017 where I went through the news articles and it was obvious to me fisa had been filed and there were leaks taking place Whether it was the Wuhan lab and my Fox show where we had the former editor the science page of The New York Times it was the first to really draw the lines not make allegations but draw the lines to the lab Whether it's the national school board association I've been around a little bit I served for 8 years in the Regan administration I served at the Justice Department at the highest levels I have an instinct for this Not because I'm a genius but because I've lived it And I knew that it was not possible for a letter to be written to The White House and go through the red tape that is The White House and 5 days later to have a response from the Department of Justice without coordination And I knew from the substance of the national school board association's letter that there were being told the key words and phrases and departments To put in the letter because they wouldn't know on their own And now here it is November 12th And the evidence is obvious Fox News NS BA national school board association coordinated with White House Department of Justice before sending notorious domestic terrorist letters emails Now keep in mind that Garland the attorney general deny there was coordination Said he be surprised if he heard there was Keep that in mind Keep in mind you said you never called anybody domestic terrorist but there's two facts that demonstrate otherwise The phone number that they were giving For people to use if they felt threatened was basically the terrorist hotline to their national security unit at the Department of Justice Secondly that unit was set up as a result of the of the legislation that was passed under the Patriot Act Newly released internal emails revealed that the national school boards association coordinated with The White House and the Department of Justice writes Tyler O'Neill before sending President Biden the notorious letter that compared concerned parents to domestic terrorists Emails provided to the Fox News show that the NSPA had coordinated with The White House for weeks beforehand as I said they would have had to have done By all Garcia the NSPA president of the Department of Education later named the federal board sent a memo to NSPA members on October 11th Dated October 12 providing a timeline of the national school board association's interaction with The White House ahead of the letter to Biden which the NSPA sent on September 29 5 days later as you know in October 4 the DOJ issued a memo directing law enforcement to investigate threats to school boards On October 22 the NSPA issued an apology for the letter Concern over the current climate for school board members is also a top priority As disruptions at school board meetings grow and members face growing threats Garcia wrote at the time That's according to the memo obtained by the parents defending education through a freedom of information act request Now the reason why freedom of information act requests are now ubiquitous is because in chapter 7 of American Marxism I linked to the various state and federal sites that show you how to do this And as I've said all through the summer as we were talking about the book American Marxism that this would be a very potent weapon a very potent tool for the public It is exactly what it is Concern over the current climate Right National schoolboard association has been actively engaged with The White House Department of Justice Department of Homeland Security Department of Education Surgeon General and other federal agencies on pandemic related issues.

From the law fair archives for july twenty fourth twenty twenty one thus far twenty twenty one has seen a number of high profile incidents in the world of cybersecurity earlier this month. The russian hacking group are evil launched debilitating ransomware attack on visa that affected businesses and organizations around the world and at the beginning of this week the us and its allies accused china of a massive cyber espionage campaign including the microsoft exchange. For today's episode from the archives. I went back to november twenty eighteen when john carlin assistant attorney general for the justice department's national security division from april twenty. Fourteen talk over twenty sixteen and the current principal. Deputy associate attorney. General sat down with law fair at during chief. Ben witness they discussed the book carlin wrote with garrett graff. Don of the code war l'affaire listeners will hear harlan discuss how the us government engages with cyber threats specifically those coming from china and russia which allows a better understanding of how the us government may respond to some of the more recent attacks john. I'm excited to talk to you about dawn of the cold war but before we turn to that. I would be remiss if i didn't start Your by your one of two people to my knowledge who has both run the national security division of jets of the justice department and served as chief of staff. Bob muller i'll do a quick correction 'cause believe there are three because ken weinstein lisa. Monaco and i also served as both chief staff to director muller and had a nascar ely. I forgot that can had also served as chief of staff to bob muller so fair enough. It's still it's still a very small group of people. And i want to ask you first of all about the mood in your former division at justice you must be in touch with a lot of people. It's difficult time for the justice department that are holding up. It's a fantastic group of prosecutors. Who are motivated by mission. Like bob muller himself and so i think there's a lot of right now discord between between parties but the folks in that division are focused on those who want to harm us as americans so when you get up in the morning and your job is to protect innocent civilians from being killed in terrorist attacks and you know the stakes of getting that right you stay motivated and similarly There was an initiative. We can talk about a little bit more later. That really springs from much of what we talk about in the book in terms of the threat. We've been seeing front in cyberspace from china. Russia north korea iran. And you look back about two weeks ago now to the initiative that the justice department announced to crack down on economic espionage until the behavior changes. That's the sort of a threat that gets those prosecutors and trial attorneys up in the morning but surely amidst the business as usual which is what you're describing in the counters counterterrorism and the counter intel. Space it is not business completely as usual when the president is you know publicly undermining the mission in important respects. And i'm you know i'm curious. What the what. The normally the intersection between the work of of of the division and the sort of public politics. Except when you have. Like edward snowden like events is pretty near zero and now it can't be near zero because you have the president out there publicly commenting on all kinds of pending matters. And so like. I'm just interested. What does it do. Yeah people are still motivated. Get up in the morning. Do their jobs but it can't have no effect on the way people think about people think about what they're doing every day. Yeah let's divide it into two things so one are the prosecutors and trial attorneys the law enforcement agents the fbi intel analysts. Are they motivated and going to do their job. No matter what type of crazy talk there is in the restive washington. Yes i believe that they are but that's different than the attacks on our institutions and the undermining of public confidence in those institutions undermining public confidence in the institutions can affect your ability to develop cooperators witnesses foreign partnerships and ultimately it's a strength of our country and one of the reasons why our country is both envied and feared by authoritarian countries. Is because we've been able to carve out a political institutions of the department of justice is the envy of the world for that reason so just like those agents and prosecutors are to protect us from terrorists and those who would harm. We need people on both party in both parties of good conscience to stand up and say it is utterly inappropriate to direct the justice department to not bring a prosecution for political purposes or vice versa. Your successor in that role as head of the national security division. Is this somebody you look at it and say this is in the bipartisan tradition of leadership of that department as it should the average listener of this podcast. Think whatever's going on at the You know between matt whitaker and and the president but with the muller investigation the national security division of the justice department is in good hands both at the career level which you've already said and at the political level yes the assistant attorney general now charged in nashville division. John moore's is someone known for a long time Dating back to law school and worked with when i was at the fbi and he served in the national security division. Under one of those other muller proteges can wayne stein and he is someone who is dedicated to protecting the national security interests of the united states and not political and if you look at the leadership below that of the national security division it has stayed almost entirely in place as it should be. And we've seen this. This'll be the third administration now where there's been a continuity because national security professionals are not driven biparti. Let's talk briefly about bob. Muller who shows up periodically throughout your book. You were his chief of staff and he has gone on to play a role very different from the role in which you served under him. How do you read from having worked very closely with him. What is your read on the state of play with with respect to the investigation. You'll ben easy good example and tell some stories about it in the in the book of not just a person who does his job with extraordinary competence and when you meet him and work with him day in and day out he someone he seems like he's sprang from the pages of history book he someone who's utterly dedicated to the mission at hand to trying to follow and solve the problems and facts and apply the law and as humility about the application of the law. So that's him just in terms of being a competent individual heading this investigation but there is also what he represents and we talked about a little bit in. There is this Increasing better to try to turn the justice department partisan he personifies and motivated people not with a great speeches though with the life that he led to dedicate themselves to a non-partisan mission oriented justice department and that dates back to his service as volunteering to go into the marines or he ended up not just risking his life but saving the lives of others. Something he by the way did not talk about is almost impossible to get him to talk about that time in his life but it had a great resonance for him his pride in the marine being marine he would talk about to his time as a career prosecutor to the legend that i knew when i went to the washington. Dc us attorney's office as aligned prosecutor. Exactly what led you to say. But it's a great. It's a great story so flesh it out. So this is someone who had risen up to Something that required senate confirmation in a presidential appointment to be the top official at the justice department in charge of all criminal prosecutions. He then left. Tried going to a private firm for a little bit. Decided he hated it. Miss the mission and went back to be able line prosecutor doing the equivalent of state and local crimes in washington. Dc to be a homicide prosecutor. Because he'd always wanted to serve In that type of that type of job. And so. When i joined the. Us trees office. Everyone knew about Bob muller who is their truck and his lip bag over to court and trying trying homicides. Let's.

US presidential election: A turbulent transfer of power

"Peaceful. Transfer of power is a cornerstone of american democracy. Right now president. Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming biden administration access to key documents funding information. They need to ensure a safe and smooth transition now. The formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the presidential transition act just over fifty years ago. Em things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until two thousand versus the mission of george. Bush is not up for me to accept or reject the legal process. You know. let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon. We'll be ready for transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill clinton cabinet meeting december twelve thirty five days after the election that george w bush was officially declared the winner that gave then president elect bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration course nine months later the september eleventh terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and a relatively new president off guard when the nine eleven commission report came out in two thousand four. It pointed to this truncated transition as a weakness and recommended a more formalized process katherine dunn tempests at senior fellow at the university of virginia's miller center the senior research director at the white house transition project so laws were passed in the two thousands or spin sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kinda they keep refining it and keep refining it but what they did primarily is that they enable the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formerly so that meant that once biden was the democratic nominee. He was eight. He was provided with all space some funding for salaries and the ability to start planning ahead. Talked to us a little bit. About how worried you are or how worried we should be as americans about this as you pointed out the attacks on nine eleven happened not that long after president bush took office. If something happens january or february of this coming year would the biden administration be potentially a unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. Let me back up. Just a bit to point out that There are basically two important phases of the transition. The i i pointed out was after the nominee has been formally nominated by the party and they received some resources the next big transfer resources comes after the head of the gsa has ascertained the next president united states and they use that verbiage. Esser that verb. I'm not really sure why but And that's the point at which the president the incoming president can start to have access to classified material that can start to be part of the president's daily brief with Tells them all the national security issues. It enables the biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now. Is they are preventing the biden from moving to the next phase. And what i would argue is the most important phase at the transition. It's critically important that the biden staff members be able to go to the department of justice francis and to be able to interview. Fbi director the head of the criminal division the head of the national security division to try to get a sense since of. What's the lay of the land where the priorities. What are the crises. That might be boiling over by the time we get here. And that's what they're being denied so. I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The the inability to advance to the next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crises that but we want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as were basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason and were inhibiting our ability to be in the best possible situation. We can be on january twentieth. And there's no reason for that. We have the resources we have the capacity. So why so. Let's talk about the. Why and and the who so. Emily murphy is a name that most of us probably weren't familiar with until now she is a person who is at the head of the. Gsa can you talk a little bit about how her role what her role is. And how much leeway. She has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow the biden team to start integrating with the outgoing trump administration. So emily murphy is the administrator of the gsa. It's a political appointment in the gsa. It's office is largely responsible for all the government real estate so they helped provide office space and oversee office space You know in in most situations would never even hear of the essay in this particular case because the legislation housed it in the gsa. She has the capacity to release the funding and the resources to the party. Nominees and then eventually to the president-elect by law she is the one that has to ascertain the election so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands. I mean she is a by president trump. She must be a republican. Who has some loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably for mark meadows. Probably the chief-of-staff sues weighing on her.

"Amy Walter from the takeaway were well underway and the ability for Theo administration in any way by failure recognizes this our wind. Does not change the dynamic at all. What radio peaceful transfer of power is a cornerstone of American democracy. Right now. President Trump is not only refusing to concede this election. He's also denying the incoming Biden administration access to keep documents funding an information they need to ensure a safe and smooth transition. Now the formal transition process is actually a pretty new thing. Congress passed the Presidential transition act just over 50 years ago. Him. Things proceeded from there with relatively little drama or problems until 2000 President George Florida's certification of George Bush is the winner. It's not up for me to accept or reject. There's a legal process here, you know, let's just watch this happen. It'll be over soon and we'll be ready for the transition. It wasn't until weeks after that. Bill Clinton Cabinet meeting December 12 35 days after the election that George W. Bush was officially declared the winner. That gave then President elect Bush just over a month to plan for and staff his administration. Course. Nine months later, the September 11th terrorist attacks happened catching the nation and relatively new president off guard. When the 9 11 Commission report came out in 2004, it pointed to this truncated transition. Is a weakness and recommended a more formalized process. Catherine Don Tempus is it senior fellow at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. She's also the senior research director at the White House Transition Project. So laws were passed in the 2000. There's been sort of three sets of laws that have been passed to kind of they keep refining it and keep refining it. But what they did primarily is that they enabled the winning candidates to receive funding to start their transitions after they were formally nominated. So that meant that once Biden was the Democratic nominee, he was he was provided with office space. Some funding for salaries. And the ability to start planning ahead. Talk to us a little bit about how worried you are or how worried we should be as Americans about this, As you pointed out, the attacks on 9 11 happened. No, not that long after President Bush took office. If something happens January or February of this coming year, would the Biden Administration be potentially unable to respond because they just simply didn't have the staffing and they didn't have the time to ramp up and be ready. We'll let me back up just a bit to point out that there are basically two important phases of the transition. The first I pointed out was after the the nominee. Has been formally nominated by the party and they receive some resource is the next big transfer resource is comes after the head of the G s A has ascertained the next President, United States and they use that Burbage ascertain that bird. I'm not really sure why, but And that's the point at which The president, the incoming president can start to have access to classified material. They can start to be part of the president's daily brief with which is the tells them all of the national security issues. It enables the Biden transition team to have access to all of these individuals, civil servants and political appointees at the various agencies so that they can interview them. So what's happening now is they are preventing the Biden from moving to the next phase, and what I would argue is the most important phase of the transition. It's critically important that the Biden staff members be able to go to the Department of Justice, for instance, and to be able to interview the FBI director, the head of the Criminal Division, the head of the National Security Division. Try to get a sense of sense of what's the lay of the land where the priorities what the crises that might be boiling over by the time we get here, and that's what they're being denied. So I think there should be a lot of concern about this. The inability to advance to this next stage of the transition. It's not to say that it's going to necessarily result in some sort of crisis. I don't know that, but We want a country that's prepared so it strikes me as we're basically just sort of harming ourselves for no apparent reason, and we're inhibiting our ability. To be in the best possible situation. We can be on January 20th, and there's no reason for that. We have the resources. We have the capacity. So why? So let's talk about the why. And the who? So Emily Murphy is a name that most of us Probably weren't familiar with until now. She is a person who is at the head of the G s A. Can you talk a little bit about How her role what her role is and how much leeway she has to continue to refuse to release these funds or to allow The Biden team to start integrating with the outgoing Trump administration. So Emily Murphy is the administrator of the G S. A. It's a political appointment in the GSC itself is largely responsible for all the government real estate, so they help provide office space and oversee office space. Um, you know, and in most situations you would never even hear of the G s a in this particular case because all the transition funding the legislation housed it in the G s a She has the capacity to release the funding in the resource is to the party nominees and then eventually to the president elect by law. She is the one that has to ascertain the election, so there will be no funding going out until she does it. So what's tying our hands? I mean, she is appointed by President Trump. She must be a Republican who has some Loyalty to this administration and is unwilling to buck the advice. She's getting probably from Mark Meadows, probably the chief of staff who is weighing on her. So what happens? The electors meet in mid December, and they certify the results of this election. Is that the time in which you could argue that There just is no formal or legal option for the president to continue to It's sort of obstructed this process. Right? I think the meeting of the electoral college and the electors casting their ballots. And if if the numbers show that you know Biden exceeds 2 70 as he as they appear to now it strikes me that there is she has no justification. To deny the Biden campaign or president elect by and hit the resource is, however. This is a norm, shattering president and we've never had a president who has not conceded. He's lost the election. So normally, I would say yes. You know, that is clearly a decisive moment in American history when the electors cast their vote, And if Biden exceeds 2 70. He is the president. At the same time. I honestly don't know what to expect in this administration. It's very hard to predict many of his political appointees have been loyal to the core. You use the word norm shit or term norm shattering, and I'm wondering how close we are to instead of norm, shattering. Actual democracy damaging, I mean, really, fundamentally undermining the integrity. Of our government and the things on which it is built. I would contend that President Trump along with many senators, who are Denying the facts of the election results and are upholding sort of Trump's Baseless claims of fraud and stealing the election that they are undermining the very tenants of American democracy. In order to have a healthy democracy, the citizenry has to believe in the institutions. They have to believe that the elections that they voted are free and fair. And by actively perpetuating this notion that there has been fraud and some sort of stealing of votes. You are undermining the important tenets of American democracy. And that has long term implications and we are already at important and I would say high level of turmoil in this country. Pandemic has wrecked havoc on the account economy. Various incidents across the country have heightened racial tensions in this country. This is not a moment where we then need to undermine yet another important aspect of American democracy. How

6 Russian Intelligence Officers Charged In High-Profile Cyberattacks

"Officers are facing federal charges in connection with a series of high profile and destructive cyberattacks. The charges, detail hacks targeting the 2017 French elections and the 2018 Winter Olympics, among others. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is here to tell us more. Hi, Ryan first. What do we know about the defendants and what they've been charged with? The Justice Department says that these six defendants are all current or former officers with Russia's military intelligence agency. That's the GR EW. It's the same agency that was behind the hacks in the 2016 U. S election. Now there's no allegation in this indictment of any hacking tied to the 2020 vote, the one in the inn Ah, a couple of weeks. The defendants in this instance face seven counts in all those include hacking, conspiracy, wire fraud, computer fraud and identity theft. And this is for a really stunning string of cyber attacks over the past five years, U. S officials say this is the single most destructive and destructive Siri's of cyber attacks that have ever been attributed to just one group. What were those attacks Tell us about them? Well, it's a long list. It includes hacks in 2015 and 2016 that targeted Ah, Ukraine's power grid. Those knocked more than 200,000 customers offline at one point or as one U. S official said Today, it turned out the lights and turned off the heat in the middle of an eastern European winter. There's also a devastating attack known is not Pecchia that began in Ukraine and spread across the globe that crippled companies and industries and hospitals. It cause billions of dollars in damages, including here in the U. S. There are hacks targeting the investigations by British and international authorities into the use of a Russian nerve agent to poison a former Russian spy in the UK. That was the episode involving the Spice Sergei Scribble and a few others write. Each of these incidents has been widely reported on their own. It's interesting to see all of these people tied together with all of them exactly right, And there's actually even Maurine the indictment their cyber attacks that targeted the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. And then there's the hack and leak operation against the 2017 French elections that targeted the political party of France is now president Emmanuel Macron. So it is really quite a list any insight into why the defendants allegedly chose those targets. The Justice Department says that all of these hacks furthered Russia's interests further. Russia's Geo Geo political aims You look at Ukraine Russia has been in a grind in war with the government there in the east in the 22 18 Olympics. Russian athletes couldn't compete under the country's flag because of a massive doping scandal. In the case of the nerve agent poisoning, British and international authorities had pinned the blame for that attack on the Kremlin. And in the case of France's elections, the operation there fits into Russia's geopolitical goals. Now the head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, John Dimmers, said today that Russia Stands alone in the sort of destructive cyberattacks that its agents conduct. Here's a bit of what he said. No country has weaponized. It's cyber capabilities as maliciously and irresponsibly as Russia. Wantonly, causing unprecedented collateral damage to pursue small tactical advantages and fits of spite. Surrounding these defendants are presumably still in Russia and not in U. S custody. What does that mean about next steps for this case? Well, none of these men are in U. S custody right with that, And it is unlikely that any of them will ever face trial here in the United States. One of them actually is already facing charges in the U. S. He was charged by special Counsel Robert Mueller in connection with Russia's hacking in the 2016 election. So there is a big question of just how effective bringing charges like these are But Justice Department officials say it's important to put the weight of the U. S government behind these sorts of allegations. It helps expose what hackers are up to, and the methods that they used. It also makes clear to the international community what Russia is doing. And while it may not be a satisfying as seeing the defendants in court, U. S officials say, it is still a valuable thing to do. NPR's Ryan Lucas. Thank you. Thank you.

"With less than 100 days before the presidential election. U. S intelligence officials are warning that Russia and other adversaries are once again interfering in our democratic process. In 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his intelligence agencies to create chaos in our system, using a combination of social media manipulation, propaganda and other dirty tricks. President. Trump's Justice Department currently has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for disrupting the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. As we first reported last November, 12 Russian military officers are still at large, charged with breaking into the Democratic Party's computers in 2016. Stealing compromising information and selectively releasing it to undermine specific candidates. There's no evidence of similar operations against Republicans in 2016. With the 2020 election's just around the corner. Ah cautionary tale, the Russian hack. The Russians never left. I can guarantee you in 2016. After this all into news. They never left. They didn't stop doing what they're doing. This wasn't just a one time thing. No way. Russia doesn't do it that way. Robert Anderson should know. He spent 21 years inside the cloak and dagger world of spies and hackers overseeing the FBI's counterintelligence and cyber divisions. And tracking Moscow spy agencies, an alphabet of artifice, the FSB S V, R, and especially the G R U G. RU is military intelligence. So when we look at the attacks that happened during a presidential Races in 2016. You had military organisations inside of Russia attacking our infrastructure. So are the hackers or are the soldiers? So they're both on in most cases in most these units or not just hackers. They're probably some of the best mathematical minds in Russia. These air seasoned professionals that have worked away up the ranks to be in these units. To carry out the strategic attacks on behalf of that country. These are the hacker soldiers from G R U unit 26165, who, according to the Justice Department were responsible for breaking and entering into the Democratic Party's computers remotely from Moscow. Their names, ranks and faces are now on the FBI's most wanted list for stealing, among other things, the Democrats, strategic plans detailed targeting data and internal polling. G R U Colonel Alexander also joke commanded a separate unit. 744551 of his officers was in charge of spreading this stolen material to political operatives, bloggers and the media. Another hack state election boards. It wasn't some £400 guy in his parents Basement. No, this was a well choreographed military operation. With units that not only were set up specifically to hack into obtain information, but other units that were used for psychological warfare or weaponizing that this is not an operation that was just put together haphazardly. So that was the 26165 unit. The Justice Department's National security division is overseeing the Russian hacking case once they're doing that keystroke monitoring, Assistant Attorney General John Dimmers runs the division. Along with the deputies, Adam Hickey and Sean knew DOJ attorney Heather Al Pino worked with special counsel Mueller on the Russian indictments all have access to the underlying intelligence and have no doubt the rush. Shins interfered in the 2016 election. This really happened. Yes, that really happened. And we believe that if we had to, we could prove that in court tomorrow, using only admissible non classified evidence to 12 jurors. You ever expect to get the 12 Russian officials The trial. I would be surprised, But the purpose of the indictment isn't just that, although that's certainly one of the purposes, the purposes of this kind of indictment is even, uh, to educate the public. For a legal document. The 29 page indictment is a page Turner It. Details how U. S intelligence agencies tracked each defendant's actions, sometimes by the keystroke, revealing the fictitious names and phony emails used to infiltrate the Democrats, computers. And tracing the stolen data on its circuitous route from Washington, D. C. To Moscow. The information in the indictment is very detailed. You have descriptions of the Russian agents. Typing. Into their computers. Obviously, I can't go into too much detail because I don't want to reveal investigative methods. But the inside here is that behind every one of those Keyboard's is not night P address. It's a human being those indicted G R U agents. The U. S. Says one team, working out of a building in Moscow called the Tower created a website and a provocative character to disseminate this stolen material. Lucifer 2.0 So goose over 2.0 is a fictional online persona. It's all an effort. The Russian side to hide their involvement. And these guys are pretending to be one lone hacker. Correct, and that works. What it gives them is plausible deniability. Right. They don't need to work 100% as long as the Russians, Khun say. Wasn't us. Posing as goose A for 2.0. The Russians offered up stolen documents to Julian Assange, Jas wiki leaks and self proclaimed dirty trickster Roger Stone. It was all part of a broad campaign to disrupt the presidential election. But there was another less well known part of the Russian operation to undermine Democrats running for Congress. It started as large document dumps where goose for 2.0 was kind of taunting and saying, I have more Kelli Ward Burton was executive director of the D. Triple C. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. When the Russians hacked the committee's computers, these bullet points at the top are the summary for how we need to win. They swiped and dumped on the Internet material, she told us cost millions of dollars to produce. Battle plans for congressional races, demographic research on voters and extensive dossiers on the weaknesses of their own candidates. So when we deliberate internally about anything, you know that's not intended to be made public, and that's what makes this so important to understand these as stolen documents. It's not different than Watergate. It's not different than When Republicans came into the DNC and stole documents from the file cabinets. It's the cyber version of that they came into our office and they stole Our documents. Documents were never intended to be public. And then they used that in the election, even Democrat party bosses or questioning his character. Ward was shocked when Republicans used the stolen internal materials in this negative ad. We reach out to them and ask them, you know, we way, said We've been the victims of a cyber attack by a foreign adversary. Will you make a commitment not to use any of these stolen materials in In the campaigner in the 2016 election, and they wouldn't make a commitment to do so, she says. In the months leading up to the elections, Russian tactics evolved, the indiscriminate document dumps became more frequent and strategic. There would be thousands of documents that would show up on one day and then they got smarter and he started to really specific documents. Related to our specific races or documents that were in art most targeted states and are most targeted areas.

"Fact finders here on the lawyers and the National Security Division to vet the accuracy of the application Trump right? No Senator did not hatred. Well, if I meant to say I have to speak up here for the career, men and women of the Department of Justice, you know, you know, I'm not talking about all the career men and women. I think you and your colleagues have tarnished the reputation of the FBI. She relied on the FBI and you see everybody was lying, relying on somebody else. To do the fact checking to the real investigation, too, but they were happy to run Fizer warrants on people. And on play all these games is the most appalling political scandal of my lifetime. Line on DH. There is unlikely to be any riel. Accountability for it told you will just say, Oh, no, we were that was somebody else's job. This is the problem. Whenever you're dealing with a bureaucracy, it's always someone else's job. Someone else was always responsible. No one's really in the chain of command in a way where they're goingto have to fall on their sword, so to speak. It's just not gonna happen, and that's what I think you're going to see here will find out that there were all of these very convenient it the same way that lives. Khun think that journalism is not just a an enclave of Democrat activism. We can say to them hold on a second, You've got 100 stories and 99 of the 100 stories for your news organization. Or 101 100 news stories. For your Newton quote news organization are anti trump and you're going to tell us you're not biased and it's a Yeah, that's just how it went. No bias there. You know, I know it's only negative stories about Trump from our news organization, But you know those. That's what the facts that's what the facts lead us to all on Lee. Negative stories, No good stories. Don't say that to you. Well, so how do I How do I have an exchange of ideas with a person? Who is this? Incapable of dealing with things in a rational, factual way. Like it's not possible as a matter of probability that you're on ly writing negative stories about Trump, because those were just the only stories that your news organization news organization could come up with. It's certainly possible if the purpose of your news organization is to trash trump and tear him down. Yeah, Then it's going to be 100 out of 100 on you have the same thing here with the FBI. It's not possible that at all of these different stages, whether we're talking about Papadopoulos or Carter Page and the Fiza warn a cross fire hurricane and sending somebody after Nash, Security advisor Flynn and Comey going rogue and Comey leaking documents to try to get even with Trump and get a special council started It is not possible that all of these things are happening in the bureaucracy of the FBI and the DOJ that are all negative for Trump. And there wasn't actually a mentality and ideology of anti trump bias pushing this is not possible. No. No one ever stop to think you're talking about the most. This isnt just from FBI investigation, Right? This isn't a couple of guys you know, named Tony and Billy running numbers in the back room of a grocery store somewhere, and the FBI is looking at them for a Rico case like this is the biggest Most important, politically sensitive investigation in decades. And it just It's just a comedy of errors. Not funny comedy, but it's just endless clownish nous. A dossier that was paid for by the DNC that they didn't tell. The court was paid for by the DNC that was full of lies. Faking information about Carter Page saying that he was working against the U. S government who was working for the U. S government, pretending that he could be some kind of a Russian go between spy, But he was a traitor. They pretended Carter Page. FBI agents pretended knowing that it wasn't true that Carter Page was a traitor. They act like Papadopoulos with some bad Papadopoulos didn't do anything wrong. Nothing. He did nothing wrong. He got scared when he was having the Mueller team trying to ruin his life. And he lied about an evil that didn't make any difference. So they sent to prison for 14 days or whatever, 10 days. But in terms of Russia collusion to do anything wrong, nothing. Yeah, I heard a rumor. A lot of people hearing rumors about a lot of things. That's it. And yet They want you to know that the Sally Yates is of the world want you to believe that all the unmasking all the belief that the dossier was really the laundering the dossier through the intelligence community and with it with a compliant media on the back and forth between the two and Bruce or and Nelly or working Now she's working for fusion on behalf of the DNC. Bruce oars at DOJ. All these things were to believe that it was just coincidence. That these things all lined up from the orchestrated in such a way. That it was damaging for Donald Trump trying to ruin him and people around him. You're supposed to believe that As if we're all that blanking, stupid, right? But that's that is the Sally Yates are you know it was? You know, we do this? Everything we had to do, And I just, You know, I believe the FBI was going to do No. No, that is unacceptable.

This wisdom lease isn't it goes to work for Adam Schiff to make sure donald trump is impeach. This actually happened Paula. Can I jump ahead to inequality community that for tomorrow okay. 'cause I got a really good piece of Wall Street Journal. Thanks to everyone who send it over to be about the myth of inequality growing in the trump administration. But it's GonNa take me a little bit. Is it so it makes such a damning case that Obama is the one who heightened economic inequality. I want to say that for tomorrow. Because you WANNA get the Pelosi's import because and I WANNA finish on a high note. It'd be the press we will change our government. It's just a job and it's a hard are job and we're all engaged. Nobody's quitting we are moving forward and proceeding ahead. We'll get accountability. I don't care how long it takes so he was a Pelosi Z.. Remember I told you it. Pelosi's I said they were going to move on after the impeachment Hoechst Dyes Blower Hoax Muller game and all that they're gonNA and move on seamlessly they nothing happened to their. I'm telling you there next. Narrative is going to be trump colluded with the Turks is nothing. There's no basis in truth on that. It's just it's out there. I warned view. Pelosi's already going there now. This is a great video because not only should not only. She proved me right that they're already preparing their next hoax. But she goes back and contracts out the old collusion hoax again on this appearance this weekend with George Stephanopoulos. Here's why she's doing this in a nutshell. The impeachment thing is a disaster. She's GonNa forward the impeachment German articles over this week. Maybe today she got wrecked Ari. Kt wrecked wrecked. She made all these demands of Mitch. McConnell we're not forty in the articles articles until you do this. This and this McConnell said this is me giving the double barrel Middle Finger without the middle fingers because we're trying to keep the visual somewhat family friendly policy. It wasn't happy I said that on judge. You need this week. But they deserved it. Mitch McConnell said no thanks. We're not going to negotiate. But you just hold on those articles new fun over there public pressure your bill. Pelosi look like an idiot. She's now been faced planted totally here. She's like this fair palm face. I looked like a moron. Because what happened. She's got nothing. She has to send the articles over and she got nothing. Zero Zilch face planted totally tripped over our own legs. Couldn't get out of her own way. So now what does she do Jo. Now she's angry of course because she was always a praline political tactician. Yeah Yeah you're right. She was so brilliant. She got wrecked by Mitch McConnell yet again. So here's Pelosi this weekend. I think it was George Stephanopoulos. Losing it going back to the Russia hoax and introducing the Turkey hoax. Mex check this out. The president of the United States is in complete denial about Russia's role as I have said in terms of this president all roads lead to Putin. He has as he said. He's not going to accept the assessment of of our own intelligence Asian that they that they were very much involved in two thousand sixteen election that twenty four seven now they are still engaged. He's trying to blame it on Ukraine and this silliness That has been debunked again I and again but he and his folks still keep advancing it. everything that he has done whether it's in Syria vis-a-vis the Turks whether it's been in Ukraine in terms of withholding assistance as they tried to fight the Russians his denial about their role in our election. Then and now all roads lead to and sometimes I wonder about a Mitch McConnell to see why is he an accomplice to all of of that he has resisted horses going in in a manner commensurate with the threat of four state of of the agency's whichever they are a state could be the secretary of state or whatever to protect our infrastructure our critical infrastructure election. So he says you shouldn't even call that critical infrastructure so it's all of a piece with them and that's why it's really important for the facts to come forward to witnesses to be heard the documentation to be reviewed so that the American people can see there's as generally you're witnessing and I'd be dead serious not a joke. You're witnessing a broken person right there. I counted upwards of four or five. Discredited is credited conspiracy theory. She throws that totally discredited the bunk and conspiracy is that anyone with access to a nineteen eighty-six Internet modem could look up on the interweb to whip. It's just an embarrassment. She trots out the Russia conspiracy theory her new conspiracy theory on Turkey in case she was hinting at is going to be this joke. Get ready now you you heard it here. First folks. Trump was going to pull troops out of Syria. Because he's got some business dealings with Turkey. Get ready get ready. That's hoax number. Two hundred sixty the two thousand scum and she trots out the conspiracy theory that Ukraine did not get involved in the two thousand sixteen elections. Here's the politico piece. Politico left leaning left leaning politico. Not This isn't some right. Leaning outlets reporting on Ukraine trying influence the two thousand sixteen election we go Ukrainian efforts to sabotage trump backfire by politico. Not Bongino ISKOE. The job. Pelosi said this didn't happen. Yeah political retracted. This article Joe. This is a documents thoroughly. Ukrainian from the list goes that she tried it out like I said I counted about four or five maybe up to six the bunk conspiracy as you're witnessing a broken woman who has been humiliated and embarrassed barest at every single turn. She thought she was going to leave her. Tenure as speaker of the House or tenure in Congress as the celebrated Napoleon like political tactician Shen and. She's been completely wrecked at every turn and she's just broken she's been. She is totally a mess. She can't get out of her own way right now. Yeah I told you about the Turkey thing. I warned you all right on a good nose. I saw these this morning. Legal insurrection action at great piece. A friend William Jacobson runs a great blog legal insurrection. One of the best websites out there. I have his peace with the full piece of a piece with the full pieces. Article the full piece up at Bongino Dot com slash newsletter again. That's our show notes. We will email them every day if you choose but this is a series right now of Reagan jokes that been put together. They're just short and sweet. But I'm only playing them in light of Bernie Sanders recent rise to the top. Who of course is a Communist? I mean is to advocate socialism. Sadly and a lot of the he seems to ignore the death and destruction. That comes along with Reagan found and I agree with him. You may disagree but I agree totally one one of the best ways. It's almost an Linski. Like tactic is to annihilate people's believes that socialism is. The real deal is to make jokes about about how horrible socialism much it's inappropriate. I don't think so and Reagan. Did neither humor sometimes. Sometimes break down walls and crack those ideological facades people keep up. Who really believes? Socialism can work so I got two of these is a good one. Oh here's Reagan cracking a joke about socialism and an appointment of guy makes to buy a car. Check this one it's funny. I've been collecting collecting stories. That are told in the Soviet Union by their people among themselves which reveal. They've got a great sense of humor but they've also got a pretty cynical attitude attitude toward their system. And I told this when bill you'll have to hear it again. I told it in the car. I didn't tell us when Gorbachev you know there's a ten year delay delay in the Soviet Union of delivery of an automobile and only one out of seven families in the Soviet Union own. Automobiles automobiles is a ten year. Wait and you go through quite a process when you're ready to buy and then you put up the money in advance and this happened to a felon. This is their story that they tell this joke that this man he laid down his money and then the fellow was in there was in charge. said to him okay. Okay come back in ten years and get your car and he said morning or afternoon.

You understand crystal clear fashion. What I'm talking about now? What was the insurance policy referencing? I well let's put up the taxed and the date of it the data. The text is obvious. It's August fifteenth. You can see it right here. If you're watching on our youtube channel YouTube dot com slash Bongino August fifteen twenty sixteen. There is a tax between Peter Stroke. FBI agent investigating trump and Lisa page FBI lawyer who. He's having an affair affair with their texting. Each other than the text on August fifteenth. Remember that date August fifteen the text reasons such I wanNA believe the path you throughout throughout for consideration and Andy's office talking about Andrew McCabe Deputy Director of the FBI that there's no way he gets elected talking about trump. But I'm afraid we can't. I can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you died before your forty so these two investigators. FBI LAWYER IN THIS FBI agent via this text are talking about a discussion. They had in the deputy director of the FBI. Andy McCabe's office about an insurance policy. In case trump wins this has been in an open sore on this investigation for a very long time by Sarah Carter. John Solomon Lee Smith Jeff. Carlson Chuck Ross another's. We've been wondering for a long time. What was the insurance policy? We're talking about now with the IDC report yesterday. I didn't cover yesterday because we have a lot of time. Left after decimating. Estimating the edgy report piece by piece. It's now starting to come together. What was the date of that text? This is a quiz show today. Audience I hear you all in unison.

Let's read through this. From the report. Quote officials determined there was insufficient basis to proceed with Pfizer application concerning popadopoulos populist. Wow they were looking for a FISO. Papa D. Two and the crossfire hurricane team investigating trump never submitted a FIS application for Popadopoulos. They probably got shut down. Folks folks who had no information list said. Check this out with regards to Carter Page on August. Fifteen twenty sixteen the crossfire. Hurricane team requested assistance from the F. B. I.'s.

Report: Trump ordered top-secret access for Jared Kushner

"Kelley to reports now that President Trump ordered that a top secret security clearance, be granted to his adviser and son in law, Jared Kushner, and that Trump did so despite objections from intelligence officials the White House's top lawyer and his own chief of staff for some perspective on how unusual a turn of events. This would represent let's bring in David Chris. He used to run the national security division at the Justice department and is a veteran of the security clearance process. David, Chris, welcome. Thank you. Your your top line reaction to this story, which was first reported by the New York Times that the president overruled senior administration officials to get Kushner's clearance. I think it's a very serious matter potentially. The president has the legal authority is the head of the executive branch to make this decision, which is an important point legally. He. He is allowed to do. That's certainly the predominant view. But there is a a category of behavior that some people characterized as lawful, but awful, and I think this may very well fall into that category. You do not grant these kinds of high level security clearances lightly, and if the career people who do this for a living expressed serious reservations. Then I would be very strongly inclined to believe that they had good reason for those reservations. And that the president's overruling of them may have been a very bad mistake. How unusual is Jared Kushner's situation. I mean he had to amend his application for clearance multiple times. He lost his top secret clearance at one point last year. Then he got it back how outside of the norm is that that's pretty unusual. I mean, I do have some sympathy for people who have to fill out these very detailed forms, the SF eighty six which requires you, for example to list every place you've lived in every job you've had and oftentimes there are financial disclosure forms that are difficult for somebody like mR Kushner in particular, who I think has a good deal of financial wherewithal? But the sheer number of mistakes if that's what they were that he's made the number of corrections that he's had to make that is very unusual the loss of a clearance. And then the restoration of. A clearance. If that's what happened. That's unusual. This is by no means a normal occurrence and for an ordinary person. I think the perspective on it from most outsiders would be that. There is no way someone who was not privileged by the relationship that he has with the president would have gotten through meant to be fair. We don't I don't know at least all of the actual facts. But it sure looks like someone is leaning really hard on the wheel here. How is the process supposed to work? Well, the career folks in the agencies will do a background investigation. They will interview the person in question, they will require him or her to produce documents you fill out these very elaborate forms that I mentioned, and then they will go out into the field. And they will interview your friends and acquaintances and colleagues and ask them for additional sources of persons. They can interview it's quite a thorough going over and at the end of that they make a report and an assessment. Whether the person is or should be eligible for access to a very classified information. Of course, the president as we've discussed can disregard the facts or the recommendation or both and he can make the decision. And apparently that is at least with the news media says happened here. The process would normally work that the facts are found the recommendation is made and in very much. The majority of cases almost all cases, the recommendation is followed here it wasn't apparently. So how big a deal? Do you think this is what is the significance? I do think. It's a very big deal. We have this whole elaborate process of doing background investigations, and then granting security clearances or not based on the results of those investigations because we want to protect classified information from disclosure. So the first concern here is that if Kushner really is a risk. Why are we taking that risk as a nation with very sensitive information? I think a second point is that it's demoralizing to see this departure from normal processes for a family member of the president for all of the people in the government who do follow the rules, and I expect a lot more review. You of this by congress, or by others to get to the bottom of what really happened here because it's it's important David, Chris he served in senior national security posts at the Justice department in both the Bush and Obama administrations, and he is founder of the culprit partners consultancy, David Chris. Thank you.
