"Times where someone says something. Funny it's definitely you know. It's such an intense environment particularly pre pandemic because you know in pandemic. We've been arguing on on the on a speakerphone which is just kind of ridiculous but but pre pandemic you go there you know. There's definitely a kind of dramatic tension to the whole thing and so it makes things that don't sound particularly funny. Become very funny I tend to avoid you. Know much in the way of Humor at the court. Just because i'm not sure i'll pull it off right and now you've taken improv. As i say that you're folded off when you were doing the argument on behalf of bin. Laden's driver did you get a sense that the members of the court appreciated the nose and glasses that you're wearing at that you know. Put some shade on your. I'd like to see you go in maybe some props. Yeah no no no props at the court for me at least paulo. But you know next time. You're up there. You know but you can do the props and i'll watch and see how it goes over with the dustin but you know there are definitely times i very. I argue a case right the day after the election this year on november four th And it was a very controversial case about the rights of lgbt foster parents representing city philadelphia. Which was standing up for these folks. Against i think some real discriminatory agencies in the like You know so obviously. There was an emotional resonance of the case. But i also understood that people were all up until two three am Including suspected members of the court. So you know. I started that argument. A little more gently probably did have a little more humor in that one just because You know it was It was just such a tough day for people A great day for me but You know in terms of who won but Tough day for people that was fantastic. And what we're going to do right now. We're gonna run all this information through the old poundstone donator paula. Being the house band on this podcast is not a glamorous job. It's a lot of late nights and travel so thank you how span michael kelley bringing it on the fiddle. You sound great. If i can get a little background music here. I'll tell you what the old poundstone nader spit out. Neil cacho thank. You are brilliant. I think probably best student. But i'm going to try to use what you've said. First of all. I listen to my antibac- sir. What is their best argument. fear again. It's a scary time. Suddenly i realized. I don't know the make-up science of any drug i've ever taken or given to my kids. I know that some people have profited from things that we bought or use. That have hurt us. So trusting is not easy but we do trust. I don't know what makes an airplane stay in the air. I don't know how space mountain works. But i've stood in line for hours deride on it. Have there been enough studies. The pfizer vaccine has of recently gotten full approval from the fda and the others are expected to also be approved that aside billions of people including me of taken this vaccine with little or no ill-effects as for vaccines in general. I don't personally know anyone who's had polio. And until very recently. I thought mu bella was one of cinderella's sisters we need each. We need experts. I'm capable of learning a little bit on subjects but infectious disease. Doctors have spent years and years studying infectious diseases. Thank goodness because all three of my children in separate incidents have had their lives saved by infectious disease. Doctors i'm gonna trust them. Not some random person on facebook not someone who self-proclaimed proclaimed qualification is that his cousin taught at mit who tells me to inject leach under my skin. Aeronautic engineers have spent lifetimes studying mechanical flight. I can't throw frisbee crest sucks. We've all been burned at one time. Or another trusting the wrong person trusting heart but without it. We couldn't even get up in the morning. Trust the experts and not just one. There's always going to be a few talk about demon seed. Listen to a lot of experts. Look at the data and vaccinated before. It's too late inclusion. I would like to say. I believe the sound of music as one of the greatest movies ever made. However that unlike vaccinations is a matter of opinion he is the former acting solicitor general of the united states. And so many other things. Thank you so much. Neil kaci ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for having me. This is just so. I really appreciate it. We are absolutely honored. Thank you very very much. Thank you to coming up. The czech republic has soured on this podcast. We'll try to win him. Back by demonstrating our deep knowledge of their country and culture with tony neto and bonnie burns's report or as i like to call it the last nail in.

About my supreme court case which involved tano i was actually representing osama bin laden's driver and suing the bush administration and saying that one ton of oakland be a legal black hole where this guy could be put to death in a fake court in with a fake trial and Went the bush. What president bush did as he said in his executive order on guantanamo that there was no of habeas corpus. No right to even go to the federal courts and try and stop this guy's trial or possible execution. And i thought that was just absurd. But there a way in which presidents like lincoln have suspended the right of habeas corpus. It's a really delicate thing to do. But it has been done At the same time you know it's something that has to be done overtly With the presidential order and things like that. And so what i wanted to do was basically tricked by opponent into walking into that trap of saying the president had inadvertently suspended the writ of habeas corpus. It was my first supreme court. Argument was by opponents thirty fifth he was the solicitor. General of the united states. Brilliant phenomenal lawyer. So i was kind of running guerrilla warfare in the corporate but nonetheless. I figured out how to do that. I rehearsed at fifteen times before fifteen different practice audiences to try and get it to happen and lo and behold it did happen and the justices got incredibly angry at the position that my opponent was taking. How that did you get. Did you get your opponent to to admit that bush had not intentionally.

"Say this is back in september. This puts all the more emphasis on winning the state house back then with democrats thought they had a shot and the problem. There is. Many people voted for joe biden and he walked by six points which was one of the closest margins and a generation. It probably not be closest and But the problem with the texas state legislature and why people outside of taxes should care if they don't agree with the legislature is this is where supreme court this is the laboratory of cases that go to spring court so this that the democrats were not able to take back power being that they can pass laws like this and and keep pushing the envelope and now there's a supreme court that's much more in favor of conservative. Neil caccio before we lose you. Let's talk about mike flynn. He was national security advisor. If you can believe it for all of twenty two days and now a story that has gotten a lot of exposure at a cunanan convention. He was asked by a member of the audience. Why what happened in mark can't happen here as as the audience of conspiracy theorists cheered. Flynn responded no reason. I mean it should happen here. And neil people have been casting about in a country where we consider speech protected. Is there any remedy. Certainly any legal remedy for talk. That is straight up dangerous. This network won't air the clip because of its ability to incite And that's how dangerous the words are. Yeah i mean it's ridiculous. preposterous statement. The idea that it comes from former flag officer of the united states is beyond appalling. I understand he's tried to walk back. The comments tried to save means something else but everyone can listen to that tape on for what it is This is coming from a guy who pled guilty to two different felonies for two different federal judges so yes he got a part from donald trump later on but But let's not forget. This guy admitted in open federal court being a federal felon while he was the national security adviser. The national security adviser is one step below god in the white house. It's like the most important job imaginable. Maybe chief of staff but that's it and this guy was a felon while he was doing the job so you know. I don't put much stock in him. I sure hope nobody else does. But absolutely brian you know if someone is giving speeches like this they do start coming. Close to deacon trample that line between protected speech in something beyond that And so i think our networks doing something responsible here by not airing it But this guy is doing nothing responsible whatsoever. He's a disgrace to our democracy more than that neal to your point. Wasn't he accused by a federal judge in open court of having sold out his country. Not a charge. You hear off to a retired flag officer and a former national security advisor. Exactly like look if someone wants to have a coup metro. This is the guy you want leading it so you know so you know. This is a guy who had lacks any credibility any sense of honour. Any sense of decency. he should go back to russia to our guests. We are so grateful. You've been able to join us on this holiday monday night. Paker neil cacho abby livingston we greatly appreciate starting off our conversation with the three view coming up for us as the president today. Democracy itself is in peril as states. Try to make it harder for americans to vote. We'll talk about this. Growing political divide with two of our favorite thinkers and later a man who has fought and bled for. Our democracy retired four-star. Us army general. Barry mccaffrey on the troop withdrawal from afghanistan on the words of a fellow retired general and on the meaning of this day. All as this special two hour edition of the eleventh-hour is.

Republicans air moving forward they will have a nominee nominated and confirmed before the election. Now. Who wants pie? Cause this is over. This conversation is over. And all of the caterwauling. All of the madness means zero. I mean, you've got people like Maisy Hirono, who are saying that this is going to be a stolen Feet. Well, the Democrats are going to hang together, and I think the American people would be very interested to know that is it asking too much? Tio have Republicans actually live up to their word Already? We see that Lindsey Graham is not that we threw them in college, so Republicans can't sense to keep their word. And the American people should know that We will explore every tool that we Democrats have to keep McConnell from jumping this nominee down, are you First no nominee is being shoved down your throat. And this is the center from Hawaii. Maisy Hirono is a terrific liar. And I've said this before, and I'll say it again. This is not the kind of woman you want to be around. Um, I have met guys where I'm like, Yeah, That's not somebody I want to be friends with. That's not somebody I'd want teaching my kids. I have said it before. I'll say it again without any fear. Maisy Hirono is not the kind of woman any woman should look up to. Just so we are clear. Because nobody shoving anyone down anybody else's throat. There's gonna be a vote in the U. S. Senate about confirmation of a nominee. She's lying. She has nothing else. But then again during the days of Brett Kavanaugh, she lied like it was her job. So why would anybody be surprised that she's lying now? I mean, this is what she does, and she's just so good at it. So when the people say shove, it does not know that that's not it then. There are people like Neil Cacho. Eh? T a Y out. No. Katie Y Oh, that's it. Neil Cacho. That? Ah, better who is a lawyer? Does the work of MSNBC.

You could simply decide to pack the court because Republicans are stealing feats. Well, justice Ginsburg's passing away is itself just so damaging to the Supreme Court and then to think that there's going to be this fight, But this way is just almost unthinkable. I mean, it is crazy that just because the Republicans are afraid they can't win the presidential election. They're willing to try and break the Supreme Court in the process, and I hate the idea of proposals to increase the size of the court or other things that the Democrats would used towards you stop for a moment. The Republicans are going to break the Supreme Court. You are I want you to hear the level of insanity. Now you've heard two things that just aren't true. Nothing's been shoved down your throat and the Supreme Court is not broken. What kind of garbage is this from NBC that you could actually hire somebody to say this kind of line. This is not breaking the Supreme Court. What a bunch of trash! You see you feel you understand the moment where the Democrats realized holy crap. They can actually do this. They can actually actually do this thing. Yeah, I wanted to ask you about that, because that's what I was kind of alluding to that The Democrats are saying, Well, wait a minute. If this happens and you ran through a conservative justice six weeks before Election day or in a lame duck session if the Democrats rise to power it vibe in becomes president than the Democrats are saying, we just pack the court. We'll just Have you ram? A. What if they rammer liberal through that's okay? The whole word. A play and phraseology about the court looks like when a decision comes, and they always say, I wonder what the conservative justices they're going to do because they know what the liberal justices air going to dio and that should be turned and flipped. But this whole conversation about packing the court Democrats saying What you put on your choice now will take power will add six seats. There are no rules about how many justices on the Supreme Court Done doesn't exist in the Constitution. There's just a Supreme Court. The on ly court that is put forth by the Constitution is the Supreme Court. All other courts are created through acts of Congress, of course, could be created. A court could be taken away believer in this, but you can have as many justices as you want, so their answer is will get Democrats in power will add six justices. That'll be it screw off conservatives. If you want to know who's burning everything down, it's the Democrats. Republicans are within their right. The presidents have been in his right. They're going to do this. It's over. They're going to do it. And while yesterday I wasn't so sure. And I said, I think this vote will happen after the election.

He said that this is the last place he wanted to find himself quote. I did not want to get here. In fact. He said that heard the reason he wanted. Former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about what president trump had told him was quote. I had the hope that Bolton would be able to say something it's to create reasonable doubt so I wouldn't have to vote to convict to talk more about Senator Romney's vote to android with a guy who got that big interview. McKay coppins staffer of the Atlantic and Neil Cacho former acting solicitor. Sir General in the Obama Administration who co-authored an opinion piece in the Times today titled This will come back to haunt trump and his enablers. Kayla me start with you a remarkable ccable moment in politics often. We don't surprise us because it's like well everyone's GonNa just do. What the partisan incense here? What was your sense of talking to him about what this meant and how he got there you know? I have to say that when I was told by his office that he was willing to talk to me yesterday and that he would reveal his vote. I went there with the assumption that he would probably be telling me he was gonNA vote to acquit. That wasn't to say I was. I wasn't open to the possibility. Maybe I think I actually said on your show last fall that I thought of all the Republican senators. Romney was the biggest threat to vote to convict. But you know I watched this kind of wrathful. Aw response from the right over. The last few months directed at him and I kind of expected him to be cowed and have like a bunch of excuses for why he had decided to to vote to acquit instead. He was very kind of almost indignant about what he saw as the president's misconduct he was dismayed by by his party. Ready and what. What's become of it and you know one thing that was remarkable to me was the degree to which he was talking about? Very personal issues of conscience and faith faith morality. He told me you know. I'm a fellow Mormon. And he was talking. He was quoting scripture to me quoting from hymns kind of talking about how he had he had had to pray eight for wisdom throughout this ordeal and so this really was something that was very personal for him and something seemed really committed to kneel. You wrote today about History history haunting the Republican senators or even in the near term being haunted by this. But what do you mean by that. Why do you think that's the case as opposed to it being consigned the memory hole like so so much that happens in our in our political world? Yeah I think that the GOP is now like the grand old cover party. And I think there's kind of three structural girl features that if I were publican outside of Romney I'd be really worried about number one. Is that seventy five percent of Americans wanted witnesses and seventy five percent of Americans. I think the president. That's something wrong in Ukraine. And that's even though we're so bitterly divided as a country so many Americans share that same core belief. The second is is the Democratic Party which has been told from the start impeachments assure loser the president keeps saying it and the like and they did it anyway. They did it despite the cost. Because has like Senator Romney they thought it was the right thing and third underappreciated and this is also the role of The folks in the Federal Government People like Dr Dr Fiona Hill and colonel of inman and the brave whistle blower all of whom came forward to say. Hey this is a real problem those three things together. So let's say to me if the president continues doing this stuff. He's going to face those three problems again. And then there's one other thing which is a consequence of the president's own legal arguments he said it to the Senate to things he said number one that there weren't any first-hand witnesses and the house should have gotten them and number two he said. Let the voters decide in November. Those two things together say the House tomorrow should be subpoenaing Bolton and gone launching a full-scale investigation. And that's what the president's President's own lawyers said should be done and so yeah. I'd be really worried if I'm the president I'd be worried about every senator who enabled this cover up McKay Don Jr. in Europe somewhat predictably tweeting about how Mitt Romney should be expelled from the GOP that he's now officially a member of the resistance and should be expelled and then of course Romney's niece Ronna Romney mcdaniel. Who is the chair of the? GOP said this is not the first time I disagree with Mitt. I imagine not be the last. The bottom line is president trump. Did nothing wrong. Republican Party's ladies more united than ever behind him. I got to imagine everyone's GonNa Watch the predictable kind of nuclear reaction that they will get from from from trump and the Republican party on this well. That's that's the whole point that's the strategy and that's been the strategy from day one that Donald trump goes after Mitt Romney when he steps out of line not because he he thinks he's going to be able to intimidate Mitt Romney necessarily because he's sending a message to all the other Republicans who might consider stepping out of line. I will say that you know when I was talking to Romney. He was bracing for this political backlash yesterday and he said Look. I know this is going to be really bad. I know that the vast majority of my party is lined up behind trump. He told me when he he's in airports. Every walk down the street random people will shout things at him in call him a traitor. Tell him he ought to be ashamed of himself and that was before he took this vote. So you know the the backlash is going to be by kind kind of deliberately. A spectacle to try to make an example out of Mitt Romney and I think that's part of the reason that Romney it'll be interesting to continue to watch him both both how he reacts to that and and how he kind of weather is that because while I do think there's GonNa be a lot of anger from the White House presidents allies the grassroots. I'm not actually sure that his Republican colleagues in the Senate are going to be quite as vicious and and you know Romney wants to show that you can do this. You can take this so you can stand up to trump and continue to resist. Do Your job. The president also of course tweeting a as I said earlier kind of nonsensical video targeting Romney I also I also wonder Neil and this is sort of different calculation but but but folks in the civil service I mean this seems to be key so many of them wrist stuck their neck out to go to go testify. We we know that there were people in the administration some political mostly civil servants. who were saying this is wrong? This is wrong. We shouldn't be doing this and I wonder what today means for them as well. In terms of restraining the president going forward so two things I just with respect to the conversation you were just having it so striking to me that this is the same person who evidently said something according to CBS opponents head is going to put on a pike and that led all the Republican senators to freak out when representative Schiff made that argument. But now that's exactly what's Howard's to Romney. We don't hear any of the any of that back and then with respect to the federal bureaucracy. I think you're absolutely right. You could take two different lessons from at one is it. Didn't work but I think the lesson that dead there is being taken in America. I'm starting to hear it from people in the federal government including when people who've seen some bad stuff and haven't come forward yet is the truth has got to come out. If the truth keeps coming out then the president is going to be stymied and all of the horrible things that he's trying to do and so I think this is going to be a lesson that's going to empower future whistleblowers. It's not going to hold them back And I certainly encouraged anyone with information to come forward McKay coppins and Neil Cacho. Thanks Janet from raking time tonight.

"To the Senate of the United States until that it's just a bunch of lawyer talk and he is a holy persuasive. Can you talk about the Republican. Saying reciprocal witnesses. If if The Democrats get Bolton the Republicans get big Joe Biden Hunter Biden. They get someone for each one that the Democrats. Let's get talk about the significance of this. What is material witness and ultimately who decides well? It's very frustrating. Because as you know I I think the Democrats in the house. Managers have really approached this from the standpoint of trying to get a search for the truth treating the Senate as effectively a court court of law and trying to get witnesses who are relevant and material meaning that they have information that's pertinent to the allegations against them and the senators senators by the Republican senators contrast keeps on threatening. Oh we're GONNA call Joe Biden and it'll be bad for your political stuff and I just think that they're talking to different foreign languages. The House is really talking. The language of the rule of law in the Senate Republicans are really talking. The language of politics which is I think? An enormously destructive force look if they want to make a case that you know Hunter Biden or Joe Biden's truly relevant to this great but I as you were just saying a moment omen ago. I thought the President's defense was that he had mixed motives in his own head. And there's only really one true witness says who can explain that defense. What's in his head and that's Donald Trump and until he goes and says so on the stand? All of this has to be taken with more than a grain of salt. There's really nothing to it in particularly when you have witness after witness saying You told me your motivation was something else and you know that is exactly what Ambassador Bolton according to The New York Times said in his book and the idea that we could you know come to any sort of resolution on this central all set of allegations without hearing from him is like it's a mockery of American justice. It's much more like the Soviet system and I don't think it's going to work. I think if the Senate it really voted tomorrow to not have any witnesses and to rush to acquittal of trump I think all that's GonNa do is force a rolling impeachment of this president the houses houses then going to go back and call all these witnesses and they'll all come forward and the Bolton book will come out and these Republicans lukens who voted for no witnesses will have the blood of the constitution on their hands. Meal up one of the arguments as you know that trump's lawyers have been making. Is that by calling witnesses that will automatically lead to endless litigation. Could you respond to that. You recently wrote a piece saying that trump's lawyers are in fact wrong in making that argument. Yeah this is a real easy when I wrote in The Washington Post yesterday with Josh Belcher the reason and so In the house. It's true that if they tried to call Bolton Alton or other folks the president had said he was going to try and fight this in the courts through executive privilege but in the Senate. It's a whole different thing. Because the chief justice presides presides over the Senate impeachment trial. And he's right there and can decide any executive privilege question and indeed the United States Supreme Court in a case about twenty twenty years ago said that the federal courts have no business in impeachment trials. Reviewing what's going on they called it non-justiciable so you can't make make a federal court case out of impeachment and so the chief justice is going to be the last word and that's exactly what representative shift said lightly last night on on the floor of the Senate and so we're talking about days not months or years but days to have an executive privilege claim. you know Invoked and resolved. Now it's not even clear to me. The president would invoke executive privilege. He never has when you invoke executive privilege. You've got to actually show the documents arguments or or the testimony that you want to be privileged And here I think the president is quite afraid to show those documents because they show Oh that he's guilty And you know there's any number of other problems at the executive privilege claim the fact that he's waved it by talking about all this stuff ahead of time In the like so. I think it's a bogus claim and they'll be easily resolved and no senator should be worried that this is going to delay things in any serious fashion. Shen Neil Konczal. We're you know asking you a lot about what happened yesterday. which was the beginning of the senators asking questions through the chief justice? WHO's presiding over the trial? Oh John Roberts but overall the Senate impeachment trial that has been taking place. I mean you wrote a book on impeachment. That just came out. What has surprised you most? What information did you not realized? Has Anything changed your mind and do you think it's possible. If Hunter Biden for example were forced to take the stand. That new information would come out so I wrote the book which is called impeach as a kind of citizens guide to impeachment. It's a hundred and fifty pages long and it goes through the history of impeachment starting with the Philadelphia Convention and brings us up to the present day in the allegations against president trump. And your question. I don't think anything that's come out out his changed Anything that I wrote in the book since it came out about a month and a half ago if anything it's just the case against trump has become stronger because each week week there's new revelations whether it's the Bolton book this week or the Left parties testimony last week or the Office of management or the Gao General General Accounting Office saying what the president did with Ukraine is illegal the week before so you just have more and more evidence and the trajectory of this all points in in the president's guilt there's no new evidence that's come out ever since the whistle blower report in September. That says the president is innocent. It all points. It's in that same direction and you asked me what I was surprised about since I wrote the book. I guess I'd say one thing you know. The beginning of the book talks about what I call the yardstick stick rule which to me is the essence of what the rule of law is about. which is it doesn't matter who the parties are before you? The whole idea of law is that justice is blind aligned. That's why Lady Justice in the statues is blindfolded. You get the same justice whether you're a man or woman or Republican or Democrat and so in the book I you say as a thought experiment just pretend that this these allegations about Ukraine were against President Obama instead of against President President trump. How would you vote? And I said each senator should look in the mirror in the morning and ask themselves that very simple question and it just as much true for Democrats as is Republicans and you know for me. At least I believe the answer is very clear. I don't care. I loved President Obama but if he did this I'd be the first one to March each down there and say you're out of there and it's surprising to me that the Republicans have marched in lockstep so much so they're afraid uh even have witnesses. It's kind of become a party of the three monkeys and seeing though evil and hear no evil and just you know willfully closing their eyes and ears anything to the contrary and that is a really really sad thing for me is an American. I believe in a party system. I believe in vibrant debate. And what I'm seeing right now. is the collapse of the Republican Party. They stand for nothing if they can't stand for the most simple basic precepts of the rule of law. which is you know heck? We don't want a president who cheats in his reelection. Neil who would you like to see as the Senate impeachment. The trial continues. Who would you like to see testify? And what kinds of documents do you think should be brought in as evidence. So I think that there's you know a basically two groups of people who like to testify outline that and then I'm going to have to go so the first is I think the most important person as we were talking about a moment ago is president trump himself. His whole defense is I had pure motives. I did nothing wrong long. I wanted to fight corruption in Ukraine. If he really thinks so go tell it under oath to the American people and let's see how what they think of that explanation the nation so I think he's the most important witness given the defense given all the allegations against him including now by his own National Security Adviser John Bolton and then second the witnesses with firsthand information that the president has blocked so far from testify. So it's John Bolton the former national security advisor her Mick Mulvaney who is the acting chief of staff John Duffy. WHO's the office of Management and budget official and secretary might bow secretary state? Mike Pompeo you so I think it's that group of five witnesses and the documents that they had in relation to the Ukraine situation that we'd like to see Neil Cacho going to thank you so much for spending this time with us former acting solicitor general in the Obama Administration.

"Take it high now by the soul rebels. This is democracy now democracy now dot Org the Warren Impeach report. I'm Amy Goodman with nermeen shake and we're joined in Washington DC by Neil cocktail former acting US solicitor general and the Obama Administration the station Supreme Court lawyer and Georgetown University law professor. Neil Cacho is also the author of the book impeach the Case Ace Against Donald Trump. Welcome to democracy. Now Neil Caccia. We want to go right to well. That explosive claim by President. Trump's lawyer our Alan Dershowitz his claim of executive power. That says a sitting president can take any action to boost his reelection chances if he feels Alice's reelection is in the public interest. If you could start off by weighing in on that and then talk about the significance of half what happened even yesterday where we moved to that period of sixteen hours of the senators asking questions through the chief justice of the United States. John Roberts who's presiding over the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Okay so amy thanks. It's great to be on your show so and with respect what you're saying about Professor Dershowitz you called it a claim Bhai Professor Dershowitz. I think the technical legal word is a joke That is nobody. Nobody no responsible constitutional scholar in two centuries agrees with Dershowitz And you can't like chuck them all up as biased. Ask politically or something like that. You go back decades. You'll never find a serious scholars saying anything like what he said yesterday. And that's for a very simple reason. Impeachment is the people's check against an abusive president was laced into our constitution by our founders. And the idea that the president can simply say oh. I think my reelection is in the national interest therefore I can do whatever I want is stupid. I mean it's just a ridiculous Silas argument It would mean for example that President Nixon when ordering the Watergate break into the DNC headquarters didn't commit an impeachable offense it. It would mean that the president could use the army to go threaten Democrats who voted for Democratic candidates instead of voting for him. It could even mean that the president could shoot his opponent and say hey you know. My reelection is in the national interest so I can do whatever I want You know this is not even good concert. This is not even bad constitutional. Lawyering it's atrocious constitutional lawyering and You know in in and say one more point about this. This lawyer. Dershowitz is hired hired by the president. So he's going out there and advocating. What the president wants him to advocate and any president? Who has these views has to be? uh-huh I mean that is the definition of why you have impeachment in there because he doesn't believe in the rule of law he thinks that he's above it as long as his motivations wins for reelection are pure and he's in the national interest in our founders. Whole idea you go back to the federalist Papers Federal fifty-one men aren't angels? That's why government is necessarily. That's why the double security of checks and balances. His unnecessary Madison. Says all of that is being destroyed in this moment by the president's arguments meal could chew also talk about how trump's legal team more generally has been dealing specifically with Bolton's a book revelations which are quite explosive first they ignore them then said there it inadmissible then Dershowitz saying it doesn't matter if they're true or not because it would not quote rise to the level of an abuse of power or an impeachable offense..

"Hey, no, come on. Well, I don't mean this is a legal crowds to their textualist. And therefore they want to get it. Exactly. Right in general. Without purporting to quote, attorney-general Richardson. What did he say? Thank you. What is it about? No. You don't understand it, of course. But guess what he recognized the power of the attorney of the press United States under our separation of powers to fire the attorney general artifacts for the special prosecutor. And so he did the honorable thing. By the way, does that principle. Sound familiar to you? Does that sound like obstruction of Justice? But I digress. And so Elliot Richardson. I can't do it the second in command was the deputy attorney general who by operation law becomes the acting attorney general. We named that definite trivial pursuit. But this is not trivial. Who was that? Deputy attorney general, oh, this is Elliott, Don, this is beautifully informed. Historically, literate all this Bill ruckus house. He to said as a matter of honor. I cannot do this in light of the representations made to the Senate Judiciary committee to protect the independence of Archibald Cox. Now, there was a third person. This is before the creation of the office of associated attorney general which stands to this day. It's perfectly fine that we had that growth in the leviathan. The Justice department was a bit leaned frankly at the top, historically. And I really do mean that you do need senior leadership the associated general was created. But not then that came during the Carter administration. So let's reverse field and return then to though. That dark day, and who was third in command at the Justice department, and who became the acting attorney general boy crying. Future. Judge future supreme court nominee, Robert Bork, and happily I'll give a little bit of personal testimony. Here I discussed this with the great man Bob work during his lifetime. When we served I was privileged unworthy as I was to serve as his colleague on the on the DC circuit. And Bob wasn't one to March down memory lane. But he would on prompting. And the story has been told through the eyes and recollection of really only Bill Russell's house, maybe a few. No, no, no, no, Elliot Richardson wrote about this. And I'd love to be guided. But anyway, here is I first hand report perhaps failing memory, but I don't think so on this. I did not want aboard. I did not want to fire. The independent counsel or the special prosecutor is he was called. But we sat in many of you bid in that back room on the fifth floor. The attorney general's not the big conference room if you've had meeting, sir. But behind the conference room is a small surprisingly small office. And they're the three of them discussed it and work. I don't say relented that would be overstate saying. But accepted the fact that it was the right thing to do in light of the president's power was unwise USA power as he saw it. To fire. The independent counsel is he would be called the fullness of time needless. Former special prosecutor Ken Starr from last week. The the country was inflamed. And that was beginning of the end as it turned out, not so much nationally. But in here in Washington, sometimes the nation actually follows Washington, and that was one of those instances where people have both parties were pretty upset about the the firing even though there was a rich tradition of firing the independent counsel or special prosecutor, or whatever you want to look Ulysses s grant did. And what was good enough for honest. Ulysses should be good enough for contemporary times. But no because of what it was tugging at the idea of honest and accountable government. How dare you Mr President ordered the firing of the special prosecutor congressman response during the Carter administration with the ethics in government act that created now a special prosecutor that five years later was called the independent counsel. And now would be called the special counsel. What that? Yup. Represented was a radical shift from our traditions of separation of powers. From the president or the attorney general appointing a special counsel and investing that power or vesting that power and a three judge panel of the United States appeals for the district of Columbia, circuit three appellate judges from around the country chaired by a member of the DC circuit. But judges appointed from around the country panel of three who simply served as an extra judicial duty on rotating terms of playing by the chief Justice. So that was the mechanism for twenty one years into which number of people were appointed, including judge, Lawrence, Walsh and Iran-Contra as result of Iran-Contra. You're investigating a good and honorable man. His name is Ronald Reagan. We on one side of the out. Now hate you. And we hate this statute then came. Whitewater, Elliot, thank you for being willing to serve we felt someone from San Antonio somewhat besieged at times, but I don't wanna be overly dramatic. But Elliott came when we needed Elliot to serve eternally grateful for that. And then of course, the most controversial phase even after we'd had fourteen convictions in Arkansas, including the sitting governor of the state, we've found an enormous amount of corruption in the state. It was straight out of Madison's federalist ten you could predict it. If you read Madison's federalist tin. You would say there's probably stuff here that needs to be investigated and prosecuted. Sure enough it was including the president and then first lady's business partners, and the first lady's client, the rose law firm, I tell that tale in the book, but that's not. The purpose of what I want to do here. By the end of that independent counsel investigation, including the impeachment of the United States supported by thirty one Democrats in the house of representatives, the people and Mr. Jefferson's party had had it with the statute, they who had vigorously defended. Reauthorizing the statute said we need a new way and Janet Reno President Clinton's attorney general in nineteen ninety nine. Got a team a very able lawyers. One of the variable. Lawyers was Neil Cacho destined become acting solicitor general in the Obama administration. And this team looked at what had happened over the course of history, including of course, the controversial history of the independent counsel law. The Walsh investigation Iran-Contra and your unbel- correspondence investigation as well. And they charted a new course through regulations that have been on the books for twenty years and under which Bob Muller was appointed. So there was a restoration the walls were rebuilt separation of powers honored a new that is it's a call by the president or the attorney general under the regulations to the Terminator what circumstances a special counsel special prosecutor should be named. The final thing. I want to say before we move I hope to spirited question answer period. Is mindful of the country's reaction to a report a referral to the house of representatives on the matter of the president's perjury and obstruction of Justice, by the way, I have to say the name of the book is content because President Clinton, and this is part of the tragedy. Is the only president in the history of the United States have been held in content and the basis of the holding of him in contempt was not perjury. It was obstruction of Justice reread. If you haven't read it read chief Judge, Susan Webber rights on appealed judgment of contempt. Visit on the former president. Now back to these regulations. They're still in effect. But I think they've been somewhat under red. Mindful of the recent searing experience and history is a great teacher homes. The great Oliver Wendell Holmes junior had some very bad ideas, especially on eugenics, but he was an extraordinary person with an extraordinary mind and his majesty burials study of the law. You all know this statement, the very first paragraph of the common law, which he wrote amazingly capturing essentially, the essence of the entire body of common law the common law. The life of the law has been. Experienced. Thank you, professor and dear John Wallace, not not logic. It's not that the law should be a logical to the contrary should be coherent. It should be reason. Well, reasoned systematically, put together a way that makes sense that tort liability here needs to have some residents with contract liability over here civil procedure and so forth. But then the experience under the special prosecutor provisions of the independent counsel caused and I wish we knew more about what went on in those internal deliberations. We're no longer going to have reports to congress. The special counsel is not to report to congress at all. By the way, before I delve into the regulations ever. So briefly. Regulations. Have the force of. These are not admonitions. This is not not guidelines. These are regulations that bind the attorney general of the United States until they are rescinded. Bill bar are very able to turn general is bound to follow these regulations. So under the regulations, the special counsel is to provide the attorney general with a confidential report summarizing, the special counsel work. What is the attorney general's obligations under the very next set of the regulations. The attorney general is not to send the report to congress. The attorney general is to notify congress and to provide an explanation in certain than subcategories of what the special counsel has done some last week at the Republican national lawyers association conference. This is former special counsel special. Prosecutor Ken Starr who investigated President Bill Clinton C span radio. I see it, and I've had no conversations director indirect with the attorney general. I'm looking from the outside. What I'm seeing is thus far the attorney general following the letter of the regulations as so when there are calls for we want full disclosure, and we wanted fully now we hear then voices saying, let's listen to the law not just to of politics. The culture favors transparency Bill bar said in his confirmation hearing said he's now said this in letters to the congress to the house that he favours transparency to the fullest extent of paraphrasing that is permitted under law under regulations and sober. Now, you don't have to practice criminal law. You don't ever have to deal with the grand jury as lawyers to know that what grand jury secrecy is sacrosanct in an age of transparency. Congress hasn't changed the law with respect to grand jury transparent secrecy, it could it said we live in a new age we live in the age of the end of the internet. Let's have that grand jury testimony simply produced by court reporter, and let's have it out on the internet. Just as we did with a certain report in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight let's don't even look at it. Which is what happened? In one thousand nine hundred ninety eight let's don't review it for privacy, concerns. Let's don't review it with respect to other kinds of issues and concerns the dignity of the presidency. Let's just put it out there. Is the sounding somewhat familiar..

"Injury. These justices. They really, you know, you get your health under control. Okay. Yes. They need to go walking around in kind of those big inflatable balloon bodysuits. So they never get insured. Well, you had one thing you want to talk about you. Don't talk about opinion assignments for Tober. I don't know if we have enough puzzle pieces there that we can get some insight on so we don't have to necessarily talk about them. It was just that. The only outstanding justices who haven't written opinions yet are justices Alito Cavanaugh soda my Orrin keagan. And one of the reasons that was interesting to me was the outstanding cases are Gundy, the non delegation case involving the sex offender registration notification act, Madison the case involving the constitutionality of the death penalty applied to someone who no longer remembers what they did Nielsen very important case about the detention of. Individuals in immigration related proceedings and Tabriz and just based on the argument. It looked like the defendant in Manson was going to win. It did not look like the defendant was gonna win and Gundy. And so I was just curious what? So I assume either Justice Sotomayor Justice, Kagan got the opinion, Madison. But then I wanna know which one of them got the other opinions because if one of them got the opinion in Nielsen than perhaps, we have a more five four or six three progressive majority in that case, which seemed eminently possible or argument, I just wanted to note that possibility. Vern more as time goes on. This is the the fun part of the term as puzzle pieces start filling themselves in and then he started to figure out. Okay. This person's writing this in. This means something good or bad depending on. Taken his writing gun. She came in with a really clear perspective on that case. But anyways, just just wanted to flag that. As lifelong learners and people always interested in learning more. We're big fans of the great courses. Plus, it's an online streaming service. That gives end up information to a huge variety of different topics, virtually anything, we are interested in learning about that includes history, politics, human, behaviour, science business, travel, cooking and more. Maybe also what happens when the president's Barnes perjury. And we know that the information is reliable and fact base. No, hashtag fake news and presented in a truly engaging. Wet much like this podcast. Some people would say by experts who are not only knowledgeable that's different than this podcast. But also passionate about their subjects, and that's the same. And it's great having the flexibility to watch or listen at any time. Time from anywhere, and there's some really great content on Greg courses. Plus, we've highlighted various shows that are of a lot of interest in the past including one course, that's about the supreme court. But this week we are recommending, of course, called turning points in modern history. And this is a really interesting course for people that want to sort of think about the the broader picture of world history, and how pivotal events really can change the direction of history, and it it's a course that has each episode focuses on one particular event or period, and that was very very pivotal in the course of world history. You know, for example, when episode is about Darwin, and his theory, the origin of species there is an episode about of course, about initial class about Kitty Hawk and the birth of flight things like that. And it really covers a huge amount of territory. In a pretty brisk pace. And so if you wanna learn a lot and really get a sense of how history can change. There's a great course to check out their courses on Johnson and Johnson to not yet. But the second worrisome. Yeah. And we know that you will love the courses plus to even without those Johnson related episodes. And right now, our listeners can enjoy a free trial with unlimited access to their entire library show to start your free trial today. Go to the great courses plus dot com slash first. Mondays that's Doug, great courses, plus dot com slash first. Mondays. Let's pick back up with grants as always happens because we record the show typically on Friday around midday and the court decides to issue grants about three minutes after we finish recording. I think I think probably, you know, chief Justice Roberts is one of our patriots subscribers and he waits until the livestream is over to she the grants. That's my that's my guess. No. We we are going to catch you up on grants, you know, many days late, but nonetheless, better late than ever the court granted eight cases of filling out the rest of the terms. We think this probably finishes out the rest of the the courts dock at four this term some possibility that they could grant additional cases that that could make it into the infiltrating. But I think a lot of people think this is probably the full slate a bunch of interesting ones, including that. Several ACA cases. All right. Let's give people a break for second. So we have eight I think, you know, several interesting cases, although we should probably say, none of the most interesting, the most the most anticipated cases right there bunch of really big cases that people were were expecting or wondering the court was going to act on most of which have been relisted. And so I don't we don't know if that means those cases could get pushed off until next term. Maybe some of these cases actually could get shuffled off. We'll find out come back to that a second. But let's just focus on what did actually get granted. And there's a few interesting things so one that I'm quite interested. In is a case called a I think it's a relief versus the United States. And this is a case about. A lot eighteen ac- nine twenty two g that makes it illegal for a particular kinds of people to possess firearms or munition in one of the status is someone who is illegally or unlawfully in the United States. And the question is whether you have to be in order to be convicted of this crime, you have to know that you really lawfully in the United States, or you just have to know that you're possessing a firearm, or in this instance, and under these facts ammunition, and as it turns out, there was a an opinion by Justice Gorsuch. I think one of his stronger more passionate opinions both a descent, I think, it was it was a concurring opinion at the panel level and then descend from here not Bank on petition at the tenth circuit involved. The basically the same issue exactly the same issue. But basically the same issue in terms of trumpeting the statute in that instance, the defendant had been previously convicted of felony didn't know it because of very weird circumstances. And he. Said this is ridiculous defendant needs we need to reinterpret the statute that it's written and thin. It has to be aware of this crime. And to be convicted of this of the earlier conviction. Would it be convicted this crime, and so we can expect he's going to be friendly to the tenant here? This particular question is about whether an individual's legally or unlawfully in the United States. Not just about a prior conviction that might qualify under ACA. And yes, I certainly hope and intimidating that means he is going to be more defendant friendly in particular focused on the text of ACA. Unlike Nate, he wasn't sto cling really disappointing meal. So what else do we also flagged? So the next one. So the next one. I fly bus time, Billy John flagged it on relays, watch Mitchell versus Wisconsin is interesting case about whether as a matter of state law estate can say, basically, if you drive your implicitly consenting to a blood draw whether that's consistent with the fourth amendment. I'm just going to say that having a whole lot more about this. My instinct is that it's not all the nice thing is well, but I think one of the reasons this is interesting is it really squarely racist. This question about how the fourth amendment relates to underlying state, passive law, and whether states can expand and contract, the restrictions of the fourth amendment by declaring us a matter of state law that individuals have privacy interest in here, avoiding drugs and alcohol tests or not I mean, presumably, I would think the state couldn't say everyone who chooses to drive on our roads as is impliedly consented to a search held to nutritious or even a search their car without probable cause. Right. Typically, you don't need a warrant to search your car, but you do need probable cause. What if they just said you wanna drive any? Time we want. We can you're you're you're consenting to being temporarily seized without probable cause. And also searched without probable cause. I I don't think that that would be okay. And so the question is why is this going to be any different? But we'll find out we've got a constitutional law tax case intersection of law tax and trust law in North Carolina department revenue versus Kimberly rice Kessler, nineteen Ninety-two family trust, and particularly at issue here as I understand it is that North Carolina has rule that it can tax the trust income based on the residency of one of the beneficiaries in tax income in they're trying to apply this tax to this trust. And there's actually a circuit split about whether this violates the do process clause without having dug deeper into this. I didn't have an immediate awareness of why that might violate the due process clause. But I guess some have said that it does. Yeah. Didn't I am super interested in this grant, I had not been watching the case before? But I am definitely very interested. I sort of thought, you know, you would you have all these trust funds and stuff that you were really worried about you've been, you know, no, you're confusing me with Donald Trump junior or. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You you are in your private jet. Yeah. All the POS. That's blog post money. What else? Okay. So the next two grants we wanted to fly together because they were both filed by the same advocate, and that is Neil Cacho. So to grant on which he was counsel of record one is four pen county versus Davis question about whether titles sevens administrative exhaustion requirement is stick shingle second case McDonnell versus Smith on when the statute of limitations starts running for federal civil rights claims. Based on the fact that fabricated evidence was introduced in the criminal proceeding. And specifically whether the statute of limitations starts running at the moment, the defendant becomes aware of the fabricated evidence. Or at the moment, which the conviction is overturned or the criminal proceeding has finished and also on one of these petitions, although I forget, which one I think it was maybe four Ben county versus Davis is recently elected appellate partner at HOGAN levels Colleen row since Dak I think another one of the people on the petition with someone. Another member of the appellate group had also participated in some of the litigation regarding the entry ban, and that is Mitchell Reich, and I think he actually argued one of the cases in the court of appeals. So perhaps we will see an argument from one of these two star members of actually imagine these cases being scheduled on the same day. They're not on the same legal issue. But they're kind of in the same university. Sometimes the court likes to do sort of sympathy Matic scheduling they're both about like, the sort of procedural requirements of bringing certain kinds of civil rights type cases. Yes. It would be very hard for former acting s g catch all to argue. Both of these cases, I would imagine if they're on the same day because they're involving two clearly distinct legal issues, well, find out and then on for band on the other side of the case is a man I've described as the dean of appellate Twitter refuse Conan. So that'll be an interesting hashtag appel Twitter case to follow. So one other grant we opened this section of the new grants with an active case, and we are closing it with an advocates and that is quarrels versus United States question about whether crime falls within the scope of the ACA provisions for violent felonies related to burglar convictions wear the state law burglary requires intent to commit a crime. When someone was present at the time unlawful entry or whether it's enough that

"neil cacho" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes

"What would the? So let's say that we, you know, we now have congress. You saw Chris Murphy, right? You've congress saying look, we're this sort of victims of the crime here, we deserve the alleged crime. We deserve to know that if that knowledge is is currently being held a special counsel's office, and you general Hayden saying it's time to start a formal inquiry. What does that increase look like what does that mean? I think it you know, it's done with deference to the ongoing law enforcement investigation by Muller. And by the southern district of New York. We're certainly not advocating, and I don't think anyone in congress would some sort of investigation that tramples over the law enforcement ones. But to the extent you can start developing factual information bringing witnesses before the committee toner stand. What happened? I mean, this dispute between Muller and BuzzFeed tonight, is example, of why you need this process to begin because the Zora fences against the congress of the United States, and ultimately the American people. All right. Neil cacho. Thank you very much for makes time tonight. Appreciate more than patients at BuzzFeed story. I'm joined MSNBC legal analyst, Cynthia Oxygene. Former federal prosecutor in in Vasan, former associate White House counsel, the President Obama and executive director of protect democracy, Cynthia as someone who is worked in high stakes legal environments. Let's start. With your reaction to what we have presented before tonight, which is the special counsel's office speaking for the first time though doing so after twenty two hours of not speaking, what do you make of that? What I make of it is we that they dispute that there's corroboration. And there is no case if there's no corroboration now, there may be may turn out there. Corroborating it may turn out that Felix sater's corroboration. It may turn out that there's a lot of corroboration about the president and his children discussing this. But you know, it's a put the brakes on moment for everybody. It really is Muller hasn't spoken this whole time. And now he's spoken quite clearly everybody should just take a breath and just wait and see a little bit. Just let things settle down from it. You know, there was sort of a free feeding frenzy today. Let's start. Let's that's how sometimes when congress gets involved investigations, they mess things up. Let's not mess this up. Let's get it. Right. Oliver North and John Poindexter got off because things went wrong in the way, the investigation winning congress. And I would hate to see that happen here. If the president when he's acting. His acting as the president. This is not some pre election event. If when he is the president he directed Cohen to lie to congress as it appears he did let's get that. Right. That's not messed that up. Because remember it comes in the context of we know the Cohen lied because he's admitted he's going to jail for it. And we know that the president knew he lied because of what he lied about. So let's just slowdown. It right thoughts within one thing that we're missing and all of this. And this happens often with President Trump, and it's look over here. And then you don't look over here is that Bill bar memo talking about what was clearly criminal for president is due wasn't just supporting perjury, which has been the news of the day. But it was also inducing a witness to live through intimidation. And let's remember that when the BuzzFeed story came out how did the president respond to it in a tweet? He responded by trying to intimidate Michael Cohen by saying watch his father in law trying to intimidate witness. It's almost as if with this guy he's like a Russian nesting doll of. Activity where where you open up one vestige another appears and emphasis clearly on the Russian, but let's not lose sight of that other thing that happened today. I'm which was also a serious offense. I want you responded to cynthia's point there about sort of not what I am wrestling with. And I think what the country is wrestling with this point. Is there is this secret law enforced investigation that may or may not have explosive facts about either the culpability or exculpatory facts about the president states. And this sort of feeling that the Republic is here we are in shutdown and the Republic just sort of circles around orbiting waiting for this thing that feels profoundly inert from kind of deep democratic sampling..
