Twenty two twenty four seven sports. He's a six foot six hundred seventy eight pound nineteen year old guard from california who skipped college to play for the g. league night price of five hundred thousand dollars. He averaged seventeen point. Nine point four point one rebounds and two point eight assists in thirty two minutes per game shop forty six point one percent from field on thirteen point six tips per game. He shot thirty six point. Five percent from three on five point seven tenths per game. He was the team's leading score in best three point shooter. I've seen him as high as third in some drafts. I haven't gone forth behind k. cunningham. Jalen son evan. What more can you tell us well. Yeah he's shot. Fifty five percent from two thirty six point. Thirty six percent from three point range and sixteen games at that g. league ignite level. He does have you know yes. What more can i tell you for. Most people listening there is the allure somewhat of the unknown here. I mean only the diehard diehard nba draft have been keeping consistent tabs on jalen green whereas if he had gone to college he would quite clearly be known commodity. He would most certainly play for bruce. Pearl at auburn. Had onto college. And that would. Certainly things would have gone different. I think for the tigers last season if that had been the case green himself by the way tweeted back in may he tweeted and then subsequently deleted. Because this isn't exactly the greatest endorsement for the daily. He said i know for a fact. If i would have gone to college it would have been a different talk about. Who's going number one. He might well be right. But that's the that's the that's the status of the g. league ignite program at this point and that's to be expected by the way. But hey listen you're not gonna go number one because you didn't go to college but he got paid five hundred thousand dollars and you're going to go second third or fourth and i think that's a trade off the quite clearly jalen is comfortable with

"Along with it and so there's just not really a history of republican lawmakers standing up to the president and if they did do this bill that would protect muller in the special investigation this would be really the first incidence of them in mass standing up to the president that's really interesting like charlie was you know the the in in watergate it was a question of standing up to to as criminal activity was starting to come out and we haven't gotten quite there yet with with trumpet certainly there's been enough that there are plenty of non congressional republicans who have stood up and said that what trump is doing about the this or that is wrong jeff flake comes to mind who's about to be a non congressional republican soon having decided that he'd had enough think the people that watch here are not the flakes or the ben sasse as the people that have have been very consistent in calling out trump for his abberant behavior in various ways it's the people like that i consider more independent voices within the republican party people like lindsey graham it's people like chuck grassley i think when you see them turn or not turn that will determine the outcome hero of of how congress treats the situation that's a great point so nancy all of this is unfolding this this is causing chaos within trump as bursting forth for all of us to see on tv and on twitter and you know for you guys to cover the white house in the inner workings of the white house meanwhile as you mentioned this is all unfolding as the administration is considering military action against syria and maybe by the time we published we'll have already done so nancy you mentioned the chemical attacking and civilians which seems to have been ordered by syrian president assad so where where do we stand on that is coming at a moment of flux for the national security council you've got a new national security adviser john bolton in president trump is cancelling his trip to peru the defense secretaries canceling his trip out west for the weekend where where do we stand at this point so we don't know exactly what's going to happen the white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders and the briefing yesterday kept emphasizing that.

"So he was fuming publicly and then privately has been absolutely furious about it and so the other thing that we've really been watching and the thing that he's been asking people about is should he fire rod rosenstein who is the person over at the at the department of justice who's overseeing the special investigation and the white house has also been insisting this week that the president also has power to fire the special investigator robert mueller himself directly and so there's sort of two big things we're watching what's going to happen with syria but also is the president going to fire someone to try to make the special investigation stop this is all i mean we've seen trump go bananas a little bit over the the muller probe and rosenstein the deputy attorney general's oversight of that before but it seems like he he really went bananas about this and he was talking about you know the attorney client privilege is dead and so whereas in fact the process that prosecutors have to go through in order to raid law offices so onerous that i mean that's the real signal here that's why he's he's reacting like this it's so it's such a dangerous moment for him everybody is and it it's just another instance of the special investigation moving beyond what the white house thought typically would which was was there any collusion between the trump campaign and the russian government or any election and really into trump's inner circle and it's really it has been creeping into trump's inner soaker for a while the white house attorney don mcgann has been interviewed ryan's previous a former chiefofstaff has been interviewed but now trump's own personal attorney you know the fbi has rated his office and hotel room as i said and apparently what the fbi is most interested in is the payments that michael cohen made to to women one of whom stormy daniels right before the election and were those seen as a payoff and that's really what they're looking at and so this raises a whole bunch of other questions.

"Try and do this again whereas scalise might because of that human interest factor that you're talking about maybe he maybe he would have a better shot at that whereas on the flip side if all you need is half plus one of your conference for that internal vote to become a minority leader maybe mccarthy has a better has the inside shot at that because of the longevity of his relationships and his work with within the house it's a fascinating question the question mccarthy becomes become minority leader but again his relationship with trump as you know there's been talking about mccarthy maybe white house chief staff and there's a possibly democracy one it'd be minority leader let me make one other point about being speaker you win the election in november speaker vote is not till january and you know they have they haven't eternal vote inside the republican conference at that point saying yes he's our speech speech your speaker designate but the floor vote doesn't start until the congress congress starts and you know the fallacy that people have about leadership actions is not whether or not they like a person are they may like kevin mccarthy then people vote for someone in speaker in a leadership race because it helps them on whatever low politically personally financially in terms of fundraising however it helps them and then and and you know if they think mccreadie means speaker would help them that's fine you know and not bill they won't vote for him and it doesn't matter if they lake or not that's the wrong brummer it's that they you know wouldn't benefit them to having him speaker and that's why being eventually lost his hold on the conference as a really good point.

"That's a really great point nancy can you tell us a little bit about about trump's relationship with ryan and you know how it's evolved over the last year and a half or so and also his his relationship with some of the folks who potentially could replace him yes so i think that trump and ryan at this point have a pretty good relationship and it really wasn't always that way you know ryan was really critical of trump during the presidential campaign and our colleague tim alberta had a piece up on politico today talking about how you know ryan had assume that hillary clinton would win the election and had the speech prepared that was going to disengage himself from a some of trump's identity politics and some of his comments divisive comments about race and sort of dog whistles to white nationalist he was going to deliver that you know on election night or the day after the election he ended up shelving that in order to sort of forge this pretty decent relationship with the president and intern he's gone some of the things that he wanted you know ryan used to be the chairman of the house ways and means committee which is the tax writing committee he's always wanted to do attack bill you know i covered ryan in the house when he was the chairman of the budget committee so he's always really loved these wonky issues and he did manage to help pass a historic tax bill and that's a huge thing but i think in order to do that he had to overlook some of trump's you know personal issues and i feel like that will be part of his legacy i also just on the policy stuff wanna point out that he did pass a tax bill but the congressional budget office also showed that that tax bill is going to blow a huge hole in the deficit and it's expected to top one trillion dollars by twenty twenty despite the fact that the country has really good economic growth so that will also be part of ryan's legacy so i think the legacy is going to be complicated i wanna read a headline from politico the race to replace paul ryan is on however the the story ran on monday two days before ryan's announcement so brazil tell us a little bit about the.
