The former motel became in L. A hot spot after a list investors like Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio. Pump money into it Back in the 19 nineties. It's not alone when it comes to business Challenges. A real estate firm that owns an overseas hotels across Southern California has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. His KCRW's Matt Dillon reports. The petition by Irma and Commons affects more than two dozen subsidiaries with holdings ranging from Long Beach to the Coachella Valley. Among the properties impacted by urban comments. Bankruptcy filing is the Queen Mary, the sleek ocean liner docked in Long Beach. Other holdings that could be affected include the Sheraton in Pasadena and embassy suites in Anaheim, and another embassy suites along Highway 1 11 in Palm Desert. Urban Commons didn't directly address the bankruptcy in a statement this week, but it did say the pandemic has hit its properties hard. Filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy indicates Urban Commons plans a structural reorganization and intends to keep its businesses like the Queen Mary afloat. Chapter 11 allows for the internal shake up and repaying creditors over time. The company and its associates have a history of less than smooth sailing with communities. They have holdings in Pasadena suit a subsidiary, saying it was out almost a million dollars in back taxes. A settlement was reached in September. But according to the press Telegram, Pasadena officials say no checks ever came. The situation has been less fraught with Long Beach. However, that city has been conducting an audit of Urban Commons lease agreement with the Queen Mary since December of 2019. The city says it's concerned by the bankruptcy. Kcrw's man Gillom. Support for NPR comes from Procter and Gamble, maker of the line Probiotic, a daily supplement to support digestive health containing a probiotic strain. Developed by gastroenterologist with 20. Years of research Align probiotics Morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm Noel King. Good morning On his way out of office, former President Trump rescinded one of his own ethics rules. It was an executive order that limited lobbying by people who worked in his government in one of his first Acts in office. President Biden signed a bunch of new ethics rules, he says The point is to restore trust in the government. Norm Eisen was the White House ethics are in the early years of the Obama administration. And he wrote that administrations ethical guidelines. Good morning, sir. Good morning. No. Well, you have said, you have written that President Biden's ethical guidelines are even stronger than President Obama's, which you wrote. So what are they? What makes him stronger? Well, um they're not just guidelines. They're binding rules, and they toughen the restrictions on the revolving door coming into government. And going out of government coming into government. They build back what Obama had which Trump had blasted loopholes in and then they add new provisions like limits on foreign agents coming into government. You can't get golden parachutes from your former employer. And they toughen the revolving door going out of government as well. No well, adding new restrictions there also on foreign agents and on shadow, lobbying the loopholes the people were using to influence government after they left. So Aziz proud as we were of the Obama rules, and President Obama credits our work together for giving him a scandal free administration. These new rules are better. How are these rules enforced? Excellent question. What we do with the revolving door rules is apply them by executive order. The model is the Obama executive order. So rather than going through Congress, the president himself uses his power to sign it into law. As an executive order for the executive branch. Even Trump felt constrained, although he created all kinds of loopholes. And then he threw the rules out on his last day in office, So all of his people can run amok now that the administration is over, But even Trump felt obliged to have one of these executive orders and then we require everyone who is bound by the rules. All the new Political appointees to sign up legally enforceable pledge That is part of the executive orders. So they're bound by it both by federal law and also contract by sight. Legally enforceable. Okay, why? Why does every new administration get to decide this? Why can't we just have permanent laws that say, be ethical in the following fashion? We do there? There is a raft of sometimes confusing laws and we build on top of these laws. We did that in the Obama executive order. Biden does it again here. For example, senior government employees can't under federal law have communications back with the agency where they worked. We extended that rule, though we didn't think it was tough enough in Obama. We extended it from one year after you leave to two years. Trump rolled it back to one year. Now it's gone altogether because he raised his rules. Biden puts it back up to two years and toughens it by saying Not only can't you go back to your agency, you can't talk to your peers in the White House, either. For two years after you go, so we we lay on top of federal law. But some of these rules should be written into federal law. And some will be by the new HR one. So we need Tough rules in the statutes as well. Okay, Jill Biden's family has some potential conflicts. His son in law is an executive with health care company that has lobbied the government. His family members affiliated with two Biden foundations that could receive financial contributions. And then Hunter Biden is the subject of Department of Justice tax investigation. Do these rules apply to family members or just two people in the administration? Well, if the family members were to come into the administration, no well, they would be downed by these rules. But these rules are are not focused on family members reasons we're not expecting them to join, so instead, they'll be additional limitations that President Biden has announced that That he'll use to control any conflicts that could arise there. Norm Eisen of the Brookings Institution, Thank you. Thanks No Well,.

"You. Thanks. Thanks for the contract. Congratulations. Appreciate it. Thank you. Get you every time. Somebody has a tough question. He gets pissed off there, he says to Peter Doocy, Thanks for the congratulations. Hey, Peter. Do Si's job isn't to congratulate you. I understand that. If your Democratic politician you think that the press is job is just a massager but all day, but that's actually not the job of the press. The job of the press is to act with Biden the same way they did with Trump, but they won't be doing any of that sort of stuff. Obviously, they're not interested in any of that sort of something. Biden knows it. So Biden is free to just crap all over the press whenever he pleases to the wild cheers of the media, because this is what our media do. Is what our media are interested in doing. Even when the media are trying to cover something that is bad for Joe Biden, they covered in the most flattering possible way. So, for example. There is this piece over The Washington Post Today by Michael Scherer is called potential Family Conflicts arise for Joe Biden and AIDS as his administration drafts new ethics rules So it could have been that maybe over the course of last year and a half when Joe Biden was running for president. We might have wanted to hear about those conflict of interest and how Joe Biden had repeatedly involved himself in conflict of interest with the appearance of corruption, But now that it's safe to say so they're going to say so, but they're going to couch it as Don't worry, Joe Biden will create new rules that prevent conflicts of interest summarizing ever again. The amount of trust that the media place in Joe Biden's honesty and veracity pretty wild. Here's the piece from the Washington Post. Last time Joe Biden worked in the White House, his son in law, Howard Crime, mention that executives from his healthcare startup firm would be visiting Washington. The VP promptly arranged a meeting between the group which included crimes brother Stephen and President Barack Obama in the Oval Office. You know about sort of health. It was a big fan of it, Howard crime husband of Biden's daughter, Ashley, told the Philadelphia Business Journal in 2015. He has for Steve's number and said, I have to get them up here to talk with Iraq. Now, Biden is preparing to step back into the Oval Office with radically different expectations about how he will handle the relationship between his official power and his family's private interests. After President Trump's years of mixing family with governing and an election that highlighted the business dealings of abiding son Hunter. I mean in spite of the Washington Post, the president elect has promised to keep his family from being hired into his administration to prohibit family entanglements with any foreign operation and to go even further. My son. My family will not be involved in any business any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict, the president elected told CNN this month. That pledge has now been handed over the lawyers for the presidential transition. Okay, so buried down in paragraph. Eight. Is all the beginnings of the descriptions as to Biden's involvement with family members and the corruption. You ready for this? Here we go. Both men should be James Biden and Hunter have worked for years at the intersection of government and the private sector, using the Biden names when work sometimes partnering with Biden donors through his lawyer, Hunter Biden has promised not to work for any more foreign owned companies and to keep his father personally uninvolved in business affairs. John T. Owns husband Biden, sister Valerie, former college classmate A. Biden owns the Delaware based telemedicine company. The markets itself as a solution made pandemic restrictions with the medical second opinion operation in Europe in Asia. Biden spoke to a conference for the company met a guide international in 2017, the firm boasted about that in its marketing materials. Right, and his wife, Jill, now the doctor, Jill Washington Post have also given speeches during the Trump administration at events produced by startup health among the investors, there's joke Eonni, a major Biden donor. Much is riding on exactly how by decides to create the bright line he has promises. The Washington Post. Don't worry. He definitely definitely will. It'll all be great. It'll all be great. The entire article is not about the actual corrupt connections between Biden and members of the family and those donors. Instead. The entire article is just about how Biden is gonna do a great job of cleaning up after himself. The article closes with a quote from Norm Eisen, who served a special assistant to President Obama for ethics in government reform. Having personally worked with him. I know him to be individually of the most personal integrity citizen. I take him at his word when he says he will make sure there's an appropriate distance between family members and the government. Yes, I remember exactly these kinds of articles about Donald Trump in his family. Quoting friends of Donald Trump, talking about how wonderful he is. Yeah. Welcome to the New year, same as the old era. Get more of this in just one second first. Let us talk about the fact that this holiday season you probably spending a lot of money on gifts on Christmas decorations on all the usual stuff..

Free speech and the struggle against misinformation ahead of 2020 election

"Last week, The New York Post published a potentially damaging story about Hunter Biden, son of the Democratic presidential nominee. Based on emails, The Post said, were provided by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and originally harvested from a laptop computer left in a Delaware repair shop. There were enough questions about the authenticity of the emails that most mainstream media declined to publish the story, but it's the kind of content that Khun spread like wildfire on Social media. In a remarkable move Twitter on Wednesday Band users from sharing links to the story because it said the emails may have been hacked and contained private information. It reversed course two days later after Republicans accused Twitter of censorship. But the episode illustrates a question our guest, Emily Bazelon, has been thinking about in an age when questionable, Perhaps even fabricated content can sweep through the digital world unchecked. Does our traditional commitment to unfettered free speech still serve democracy. And the cover story for this week's New York Times Magazine, Basil on surveys the impact that lies and conspiracy theories sometimes promoted by foreign actors can have on our political discourse. And she explores how other countries think differently about free speech and its relationship to a healthy democracy. Emily Bazelon is a graduate of the Yale Law School and a journalist. She's a staff writer for the New York Times Magazine and the Truman Capote fellow for Creative Writing at Yale Law School. She's also the author of two books. She joins us from her home in New Haven, Connecticut. Emily Bazelon welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me you open your piece with a story that began making the rounds some months back, among right wing voices on the Internet that there was a plan by the forces of Joe Biden to stage a coup to take over the government in connection with the November election. First of all, what was the basis of this claim? Great. So this is ahh concocted claim and the sort of colonel at the center of it was a project called the Transition Integrity Project, a group of about 100 academics and journalists and pollsters and former government officials and former campaign the staff staffers. They started meeting over the summer to kind of game out various scenarios for the November election, and so they were basically testing American democracy in the event that President Trump wins in the event that vice President Biden winds To see in various scenario is what could happen. And in the event, there's a contestant result in a long, nasty count. Yes, exactly especially in the event if there's a contestant result in litigation and other possibilities, and so in one of their several scenarios, Biden wins the popular vote but loses the Electoral College. And so in that hypothetical case they imagined the Democrats would get desperate. And they might consider encouraging California and the Pacific Northwest to threaten to secede in exchange for pressuring Republicans to expand the size of the Senate. So Rosa Brooks, who was one of the organizers of this project, She's a law professor at Georgetown. She published an essay where she mentioned this threat to succeed in one sentence in an essay in The Washington Post. On the next day, you see someone named Michael Anton's, a former national security adviser to President Trump. He has an article called The Coming CU Question. Mark and based on Rosa Brooks is characterization of what the transition integrity project was doing. He starts saying that Democrats are laying the groundwork for a revolution and then you see that article take off in extremist online communities. There is AH podcast maker named Dan Bongino, who's a big trump supporter. He makes videos about it. One of them has the tag. They are telling you what they are going to do exclamation point his videos pull in millions of views. Then you see the story. My great toe, a right wing website called Revolver News Revolver. News starts to spin up the idea that Norm Eisen, who participated in the transition Integrity project and is a longtime Democratic lawyer in Washington. That he's at the center of this supposed coup. And from there, Tucker Carlson feature someone talking about this concocted made up story on his show. And then you see it just go viral on social media and get picked up by lots of groups, including, like a county Republican organization in Oregon, So it is Perfect kind of story because it pulls in both traditional media in the form of Fox and also social media. And then you see President Trump get involved. He tweets in praise of Revolver news, and then he tweets quote the November 3rd election result may never be accurately determined, which is what some want. And that's a kind of typical dark, slightly vague, foreboding kind of warning from President Trump that further perpetuates this coup narrative. And then Trump later retreat. Someone talking about a coup with regard to Nancy Pelosi. So you see from this hypothetical project that was really meant to be a kind of academic exercise about the election. This whole sat of conspiracy theories on the right that get a lot of play in the media on social media, and then from the president

They're using fake stories about trumping a Russian asset and a white supremacist, and they're just inventing headlines. Trump said, he doesn't care about the plight of black people that quote was not in their Pala can't find that Joe can't find because it doesn't exist. But. That's what the headline says. Trump on black people, I don't care. The reality is trump's laughing woodward for being a tool like yes. And bringing up dopey things that conversation like white privilege. Paula can we skip ahead to the the revolver? I'M GONNA. I wanted to do the Sturgis story but let me just give you the sturgis story in a nutshell send the show notes yesterday. Left this trying Oh, sturgis motorcycle rally thousands of cases of Corona virus is not thousands of cases. It was two hundred, seventy, two fake story fake story but I. Want to move on again it's fake story you can read it in the show notes it's dumb, it's just made up. But while we're on this topic of fake narratives, disinformation operations here at home and the coming coup they're planning. For Real. The leftist if trump wins. There's an interesting revolver article is worth your time. It's in yesterday show notes. Revolver exclusive meet Norm Eisen, the legal hatchet-man central operative in the color revolution against President Trump September nine, twenty twenty. This revolver piece of really good. In there, they address how norm Eisen who ironically joe this is hilarious was. Obama's ethics czar that's Hilarious isn't it is ethics are how this guy is in has written books like hatchet man behind the scenes organizing a massive disinformation intelligence tactics up to destabilise trump in the event he wins. He's one of the guys behind the scenes doing this and they talk about again, the tactics they're using from this revolver piece how is it in his book and how sites others who've used this stuff in the past this fascinating stuff how they use this color revolution model overseas using it here. Quote a color revolution in this context. Now listen to what it is. It's going to sound familiar, right Refers to a specific type of coordinated attack that the United States. Government's been known to deploy against foreign regimes. Particularly in Eastern Europe deemed to be authoritarian at hostile to our interests. Rather than using a direct military intervention to effect regime changes. In Iraq color revolutions attack a foreign regime by contesting its electoral legitimacy check they're doing that now here. Organizing. Mass protests and acts of civil disobedience check they're doing that here. And leveraging media contacts to ensure favorable coverage to their agenda in the western press check just did it in that NBC news trump doesn't care about black people. That's not what he said Oh. Interesting, they talk about in this piece there's these play books out there and when you read these playbook norm is in the work of Isan and others. That they go through in this revolver piece, you're GonNa be like Holy Moses. They're engaging in an insurgency effort right here in the United States right in front of a very is the evidence is right in front of US remember the to rules of the conspiracy to take the government one don't talk about the conspiracy to blame the conspiracy on your opponent. which is exactly what they're doing. Everything. They're doing they're accusing trump of doing. Trump's questioning the integrity of the male abouts. He's not the New York. Times was questioning the integrity of the male and balancing the two thousand twelve article and so was bipartisan commissions forever. Trump's targeting racial mino. You're doing that you're the ones burning down minority neighborhoods. Trump's the one engaging in policies to employ black and Hispanic Americans here. This is the total opposite this total disinformation folks. Why are they doing this? Well they're doing it for obvious reasons. It's about power doing the cover up for a flawed candidate. I said last night I'll say it again about Biden Ladies and gentlemen he not a good guy I opened up the show at this and I'm GonNa end the show with this today this is not a good guy. This is a corrupt career politician who has taken your tax dollars for forty seven years to be in the highest positions of power in the United States government a `hair away from the presidency both as vice president, and now is the Democrat nominee for president who has lied and manipulated his way into enriching his family and one of his kids. And other family members as well using his own power. As a carrot stick for foreigners to give his son a job. This is not a good guy. He is a liar and a fraud. And although I don't wish any ill will on anyone and I never will. He is a man totally, utterly unprepared. For the presidency, his cognitive abilities are obviously not there and when his cognitive abilities were there, he was a corrupt docrat. He is a liar. The media is covering for him. You need to have an alternative in the event of a color revolution you need to have someone ready to move in the white. House. Right away. Biden unfortunately is air guy and they will defend him no matter what he has lied about the travel ban opened up the show with that one. He's lied about redirecting police funding. He said he absolutely wants to redirect police funding. That's a quote absolutely when asked about redirecting police funding. He's going to hike your taxes. If you're middle class tax cut from trump, your rate was twenty five percent trump tax cuts cuts your rate to twenty two percent that rate is going to go back up three percentage points because Biden. Sworn on the record multiple times he's going to repeal that tax cut very simple math folks it's not art. He said he wants a mask mandate until he changed his mind on a mask maybe he said multiple times. He's GonNa Stop fracking and fossil fuel. Now he's saying trump's accusing me of to stop fracking. No, he's not. You're accusing yourself. We have the tape you're your liar. He has said he's for the height amendment preventing your federal tax dollars from taking the lives of children in the womb.

"Considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Elsa Chang. When Democrats took back the house in 2018 the Judiciary Committee hired Norm Eisen to be special counsel. He had been a White House ethics czar and a U. S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic during the Obama administration. When he showed up to work for Congress. He started preparing for the possibility that the House might impeached President Trump and less than a year later, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said this Today. I'm announcing the House of Representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry, nor Mazen's new book reveals that a month before Pelosi made that statement, Eisen had already drafted 10 articles of impeachment. They included things like the hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and violations of the emoluments clause by failing to divest from Trump businesses. Ultimately only to articles of impeachment made it to the House floor. Eisen's book is called a case for the American people, and I asked him whether he thinks the impeachment process might have gone differently if that broad list of offenses had been presented to the American people, rather than just the two articles related to Ukraine, Ari Having lived on the hill for a year. I do think impeachment would have gone differently. I don't think there would have been an impeachment if we had insisted on all 10 of those articles. However meritorious I may feel they are. Politics is the art of the possible and Chairman Nadler of the Judiciary Committee who I worked for chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee who was the leader on all these matters, and Speaker Pelosi ultimately were able to come together. Around a set of articles that unified the caucus on that we were able to get through. This was only the third impeachment trial of a president in American history. So it's remarkable that we even got those two I will tell you. That those two articles are a microcosm of all 10 of the impeachment articles that we drafted. They have features of all 10 and in a significant victory for the chairman, he did get the caucus to agree that he could include the pattern. The chairman never could include the pattern of Trump's abuse of power and Article one. And the pattern of Trump's obstruction in article to so the two articles we got contain multitudes. There is one bit of testimony that you identified as having been eerily prescient. It came from Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan and she said, Imagine that You live in a state hit by a natural disaster. What would you think if you live there? And your governor asked for a meeting with the president to discuss getting disaster aid that Congress has provided for. What would you think if that president said, I would like you to do us a favor? And months later, President Trump did something similar with covert 19 relief, telling reporters in March that he had directed the vice president not to return calls from governors of Michigan in Washington because he wanted those governors to be more appreciative. How do you put that in the context of the impeachment process that you lived through before we knew about the pandemic. I think everyone in the room I got a chill because she had so expertly put her finger on the quid pro quo, transactional nature. Of President Trump's way of doing business and his handling of Cove it It has all the same features of the Ukraine scandal or the Russia scandal. Before that, the retaliation and games to whistle blowers and above all this radical selfishness. It's all about Trump. We've never had a president like that. The biggest criticism of the entire process was that it was partisan and ultimately, the Senate did not even vote to hear from witnesses, let alone convict the president. In hindsight, Is there anything you wish the Democrats have done differently to achieve a more bipartisan outcome? Well, if you'll permit me a friendly amendment to the question, the vote in the House actually was bipartisan because Justin Amash Not a Democrat, supported the impeachment, lifelong conservative and Republican who had to leave his party because he spoke out against Trump and then in the Senate for the first time in American history, Ari You had a president who had a member of his party across the aisle. Mitt Romney and I write a lot about my conversations with Senator Romney in the book. Now ofwhich have ever been reported. Hey, cross the aisle to vote against a president of his own party in an impeachment trial. Now it's true. We saw more polarization around this impeachment. Then we did in, say, the next on one or even the Clinton won. I never imagined that on Lee Romney, among them would be willing to do the right thing and you know what makes it even more shocking, Lamar Alexander said. The House proved it's quid pro quo. And Senator Ben Sasse said many of us I agree with Lamar and yet they still weren't willing to call it an impeachable offense. Shame, shame. So that's your criticism of the Republicans. Is there anything you think Democrats could or should have done differently to win more of them over? Well, I do not believe that this constellation of Republicans could have been persuaded no matter what. That being said. I'm very self critical in the book, and I do talk about the mistakes that I made along the way and I made plenty. So yes, there plenty of Ares along the way. No. There was nothing we could have done no matter how profound the offense my God, Ari. We saw scandal with the Russian bounties. Total Republican silence near total Republican silence the president's intentional misconduct on cove it has led to the deaths. You can't blame every death, but certainly his bobbles have led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans. They've done nothing. And you don't think the president felt Mohr empowered to take some of those steps because he got through impeachment survived and thought, Well, what else are they going to throw at me? No, I do not believe he's he was empowered. He's been Behaving this way consistently since the beginning of his career, he knows exactly how to surf the bubble of the law, how to go to the edge of the law. He understands what he's doing. It is a pattern that is one of the fundamental points I make in the book, and I describe what's gonna happen. Next. And it's not pretty because we're seeing him now. Turn once again his predations to the coming election, So no, it was the right thing to sound the alarm. It did not embolden him. Ambassador Norm Eisen was special counsel to the House Judiciary Committee. And his new book is a case for the American People of the United States versus Donald J. Trump. Thank you very much. Thank you, Ari. The Corona virus.

"norm eisen" Discussed on 710 WOR

"Now, more of W, O ARA tonight with your contract and lease wheel joining us on the show is the president of the government accountability institute, and a bestselling author of red sixteen books now by our count. Please welcome, Peter Sweitzer to the program. Peter Joe constantly's. We all New York. How are you? Hey, I'm great. Thanks for having me on. Sure. So I wanna get your reaction and what I'll ask a little favour, because, as far as the hunter, Biden accusations are concerned, I think that it hasn't gone a lot of play in traditional media. So I'm going to read this coach you by Senator Lindsey Graham, which he just said a couple of days ago regarding this. But then I want you to pack it from the beginning, if you could so to educate our, our listeners who may not be quite aware. They may hunter Biden some sort of trouble there, what's going on, was Joe Biden EPA do with it. But like you to do that for. So let me read you Graham said he said, I'm afraid that we're beginning to prosecute each other for political reasons and I don't want any part of that. I don't want any part of destroying the Biden family. The Trump family, having said that Don jR hasn't Donald Trump junior is not above the law. Neither is hunter, Biden. So where are we at with hunter Biden in terms of Ukraine in terms of China, and why should we care? Well, it's a really a very simple question, and that is when we have a president or a politician like Joe Biden on his family is cashing in with deals overseas, is going to influence his decision making, especially when the numbers, rather eye-popping. So in the case go back to December twenty thirteen he flies with his father on air force to, to Beijing, China for meeting a series of meetings, which officials at his dad is participating in ten days after they return to Washington hunter, Biden small financial firm, Rosemont Seneca partners, announces a one point five billion dollar. That's the be private equity deal with the Chinese government, not with a Chinese corporation with an American company in China with the Chinese government. Okay. So dumb guy question is a billion dollar deal with China's something that is significant or do they do these fairly often given the size of that economy. Interesting in this particular case, is it was a unique deal. The Chinese, you know, media talked about this. It was done through the Shanghai free zone and it allowed this phone to take Chinese dollars to invest, no other financial institution. According to the Chinese press had this deal, not Goldman not J, P, Morgan and the problem is hunter, Biden has no background in private equity orange. It's as simple as that same, sort of dynamic exists when it comes to Ukraine, you know, four or five months after that China deal, it's announced that he's joining the board of directors of Burris mile, which is a co-opt Ukrainian company that produces natural gas. It's one by a corrupt oligarch, and he's put on the board to help the company with regulatory compliance. Now, we now know because of a related court case that Burris Ma over fourteen months, period, puts three point one million. Dollars into an account that hundred Biden was pulling cash out of over a fourteen month period, three point one million dollars. Again, the problem is hunter Biden has no background in Ukraine, and he has no background in energy policy. So, you know, my simple question is, what is hunter Biden being paid for? And why are these foreign entities paying large sums of money to the sitting vice president? And I think part of the answer is those countries are particular areas where Joe Biden was point person he was point person on policy towards Ukraine, and towards China. And I think it's a very, very troubling trend and we need some questions answered also probably aware that the current Ukrainian prosecutor did an exhaustive investigation into all the facts that you're talking about and came out with a definitive statement saying that the Biden's both of them had violated no laws. Why are you not satisfied with the prosecute? Later statement. Well, here's the thing lease. They said they didn't violate any Ukrainian laws, and I don't care. And that's not the point. The point is thinking about it this way. If Donald Trump junior, flew with his father to Beijing, China and ten days later, returned and announced that he was now suddenly doing a billion dollar energy deal with the communist government of China. Would that not be a legitimate story? Absolutely would. So you know what, what you're seeing happening is in my mind, sort of the normalizing of corruption. I mean, are we at the point in in day in the country, where we are going to find it acceptable for the first family or the second family for their family members to be doing a large deals with foreign governments, and we're going to say as long as they don't violate Ukrainian law. That's okay. Nothing to see here. Let's move on. I don't think that's acceptable, regardless of who's doing it. And you are in favour, then of Don jR testifying in front of the Senate. When when the when the trumps came to Washington. I wrote a piece with norm Eisen Barack Obama's ethics are laying out a series of blight lines that the Trump family had to draw when it came to personal finances. And one of the things I said was they cannot do large foreign deals while he is president of the United States, and they have subsequently committed to that. So I've been completely consistent on this completely consistent and it sort of boggles my mind as to why it's, it's acceptable if Joe Biden's family, does this only certain people can do this, and others can't we have to be consistent and I don't think that's something that's bitch. That controversial with the American people. Exactly. And that would be, then why you would of course then you would be in favor of the president showing his tax returns in. All kinds of issues. Said that he should show his tax returns, whether congress should use a statute is another question. But look, the larger issue here is Joe Biden has been in public life for forty years. And all of this information that we are talking about came out in a book. I released last year. It was number one on the New York Times bestseller list. And with the exception of a New York Times piece that has touched on this, the mainstream media has ignored it. None of the facts have been debunked. Nobody's challenged how much money he got? We got the money from the fact that he wasn't qualified for these deals. We have new information that in this account, he was accessing money from there's money from Kazahkh oligarchs. There's money from LLC's from anonymous Swiss Bank accounts. Why is nobody in the media interested in that I think they should be whether the name is Biden, or Trump or whoever. And that's what I think the problem is that the, the media's desire. To, to sort of focus aggressively on Trump's finances. Which, by the way, I have no problem with I think they should, but they should be consistent about it. And there's a lack of interest in the media into looking into these very serious questions. And not just this question about many other questions on the democratic side, as well. We're speaking with Peter Sweitzer and that book. He just represents far as being a New York Times bestseller. It's called secret empires, how the American political class, hides corruption and enriches families and friends. He's a five time New York Times bestseller. So Peter as far as your call. And you told hill TV find out by the way yesterday. It is. Don Solomon was a good ship over there. But the point is that you had asked or called on hunter, bind to testify before the Senate has any senators have any senators responded to you, or has there been any traction in terms of this happening, or because we're in a presidential election season now that this will seem to political. I think it's a combination of things I have not heard of anybody directly. I certainly haven't been contacted. But I think it's a combination of things one, I think that you, you have the situation at least was talking about with, with, you know, Don jR and testifying. So there's this issue of how these things are going to be handled. But, you know, to the second problem is their family members of US senators that are getting sweetheart deals from from foreign outs it, I mean, this is one of those issues where you get some kind of BI partisan consensus, at least by some elected officials because it touches on them as well, and they don't want these issues to come out. So if you look at my book secret empires, you'll notice on the cover that Mitch McConnell is they're part of a chair as well. Jared Kushner and in the case of McConnell. I mean his family, particularly on his wife side has very deep and abiding and lucrative financial ties again to the Chinese government now alleging there's anything illegal there, but the notion that, that we should just ignore these things, it's not possibly going to influence any of these politicians, and how they deal with issues related to China and everything else to me is just patently ridiculous. I mean, if we're concerned about five thousand dollar campaign contributions, and whether they own five thousand dollars in GE's stock we better darn well, be concerned if their adult kids or inking billion dollar private equity deals with foreign governments. Well, my, my aunt sent me a scratch off game for my birthday. That's the.

"If if anything regarding the president is made public other than we did the very best. We could bring it home. I think it is coming home. And I think it's coming home and the same shape. You know, people say, hey, must have so surprised. He didn't have. I know exactly what he has. I know exactly what every witness said. Whatever documents that is. I know exactly what he has. And I know what I want. You know, what's a what's a conclusion? The result is what does he have? What's the result was the conclusion decline? There's no basis. Stole exposure. It's been a terrible waste of time. What's worse is? Let's get on the other side of this. How it all happen? This is one of the greatest frauds? This country's ever seen. I'm just shocked that Bob Muller didn't call it that way say I'm being used. I would have done that lowered his shoes in this thing. Undergone sessions in Roseau. Sam said, look, this is not says we are being used by a cabal and the FBI. Wow, powerful statements, by the way, that is John Dowd. The former attorney for Donald Trump making a pretty bold prediction on ABC news. We do have a lot of deep state news on our Hannity. Deep state watched today. Among among the big list. We have is. Now, we have a situation where thanks to the freedom of information act. We have discovered that remember when the Anthony Weiner laptop issue came up, and we've been investigating this for a long time when that came up I look at what happened. Oh, no, they they wanted to push it all under the rug. Now, we find out that there are a bunch of emails being passed back and forth, including with Lisa page and going to Peter Struck and all the same figures where they were trying to negotiate a deal whereby the FBI would get certain things. They wanted from the State Department, and in return, they would de classify certain emails that were classified that were on Omah Aberdeen's husband's laptop, which of course, means that that is a violation of the espionage act, and Secondly, she had claimed under oath Houma Abidine that she didn't know about Hillary server now on top of that the news yesterday was huge. Bipartisan Senate committee investigating all of this Trump Russia collusion will they have found nothing and the media that's been peddling these lies guess what? That means. They're wrong. And don't forget that that Senate committee at the same interviews had the same access to the same intelligence, probably even more than that, which Robert Muller ever had access to all the networks have being pretty much silent on all of this. And they probably need to be because the Democrats are about to lose their big Russia collusion issue as a twenty twenty campaign issue. And then we have another problem. And that is we now know from Devon Nunez last night that are back. Going to be referred for criminal charges for they're lying to congress incidents and abuse as we also await the inspector General, Michael Horowitz report on FIS abuse, and John Uber's report on all of the leaks that came out anyway, joining us now David shown civil liberties attorney also a criminal defense attorney Greg Jarrett has paperback is out the Russia hoax was a number one New York Times bestseller as a new chapter in it. Thank you. Both also David I'll start with you. We have this other issue that nobody seems to be talking about and that's dorm Aisin. And that is the Obamas ethics chief accusing Trump of violating the monuments clause. What are you explain what that is? And what he's doing? And who he is. Right. It's absolutely huge story. And I'm glad to see that you're breaking it emoluments clause. That's right. There's a domestic and a foreign emoluments clause essentially provided the constitution one sound in article one one article too. But putting all that aside they provide that the president has a success story and should president doesn't even take and isn't to benefit financially while he's in office from outside interests investments cetera. There've been a number of lawsuits brought challenging the president under the emoluments clause. Now, what's happened is Jerry Nadler, the House Judiciary committee has just hired. Norm Eisen who is Obama's ethics lawyer and a bathroom to the Czech Republic. And Barry Burke, lawyer in New York, Isan and Burke have led the charge of all lawyers in attacking President Trump on a number of ground. Eisen is the chairman of a group called crew citizens responsibly. In Washington is the chairman of the group, and as a lawyer he filed a complaint against the president in federal court in front of judge Daniels in the southern district New York as a lawyer in the case that case was dismissed run out is it afterwards has vowed in another case in Washington to continue going after the emoluments clause is in and birth have written a hundred and sixty eight particles in the second edition now making a case as to why the president committed and obstruction of Justice. These are absolute attack dogs against the president. Now, how can the judiciary committee possibly hire them on taxpayer dollars, given the agenda? They're following mother's footsteps by hiring lawyers with an agenda set out ahead of time. They've already reached their conclusion they tax and convicted the president before they even start. Remember we heard from east minutes. Mr. Whittaker Mr. bar did they should be questioned because of their bias because they made a comment wrote a memo about the mother investigation. These two is in Burke Twitter feeds they're filled with attacks on the president that he's guilty of everything under the sun. And now they're being appointed as investigators for the House Judiciary committee. It's an absolute outrage, and every member of the judiciary committee should demand. A hearing hold them in there and question about it think about this is with the ethics lawyer for President Obama. He still has an interest in these ongoing lawsuits against President Trump is he gonna use congressional resources to advance the investigation and the interest of his clients in the well. It wouldn't surprise us. What it because as now the Senate intelligence committee wraps up their investigation in a bipartisan way with no evidence of any Trump Russia collusion. Now, the Democrats begin the whole process all over again in the house, which which is pretty unbelievable to me. Greg Jarrett v look if you wanna talk about the emoluments clause, that's fine. But there's also another issue in that is the freedom of information act information that came out as it relates to Anthony Weiner laptop and James Comey's actions just before the election when they found these emails that they didn't know existed, but they were on that laptop. They were classified and they're having Email exchanges with State Department officials that are offering something of value. They would declassify them after the fact, you know, you're absolutely right. It's the equivalent of bribery and obstruction. Let me say this about emoluments because I talk about my. Book the law is very clear, I monuments do not pertain to pre existing businesses. If if it were otherwise, the first five presidents of the United States would be guilty of a monuments. It's not what the framers intended. When they wrote it in the constitution. The supreme court has said as much so norm is and doesn't know what he's talking about. And the others who filed these emoluments lawsuits don't know what they're talking about either. Maybe if they read my book, they'd understand it. But you're right. You this using your public position under secretary of state to offer the equivalent of bribe it to the FBI to take a top secret classified document and doctorate. So that it looks like it's unclassified to protect Hillary Clinton. And Oma adamant I mean, that's obstruction of the FBI investigation. It's it's bribery. And you know, I was talking about it last night with you and. Alan Dershowitz center, Schwartz said, wow. There wasn't an exchange of money. It didn't actually happen under the bribery statute. It's a thing of value not money and second of all attempt to obstruct or attempt to bribe is sufficient for a criminal indictment. Where do you think we are now after the Senate intelligence committee bipartisan report says we've found no evidence of Trump Russia collusion? Why would that be have more weight than say the Muller report? Or is this indicate where the motor report ends up because John down the former attorney for the president. We heard him say that he doesn't even think Muller's ever going to say a word and not write a report at all. Because the intelligence committee has direct access to top secret classified information that Muller does not necessarily have access to their investigation is longer two years two hundred plus witnesses three hundred thousand pages of documents they've examined and they've come up with nothing. They could have saved themselves two years. Just by. I'm reading my book. It reached the same. They got a lot of plugs into that book today. I mean, but apparently your book is being read by people in congress because it was quoted in a recent hearing, I think but congressman McClintock, I, you know, the facts the evidence and the law are all in favor of the president. There's no evidence that he colluded in the bowels of the Kremlin with Vladimir Putin to steal the election. But there is evidence as you pointed out many times, Sean of Hillary Russian collusion, she paid for phony Russian information, and then delivered it to the FBI and the department of Justice, the frame, Donald Trump, and and the DOJ and FBI knew was fabrics. Are we now getting to the point where we might find a little equal Justice David shown, an equal application of our laws with Devon Nunez saying criminal referrals are coming down for people with FIS abuse. And those that lied to congress. I hope to something new. Attorney general I'll believe it when I see it. I'm still I remain a skeptic. You ask the question. What significance? Do we have on his Vipond partisan report? Now by the Senate, if found no collusion if you an American who cares about America? It should end this thing once and for all the country can move on with the business both domestic and foreign. But you know, that it won't because there are too many personal agendas thriving things in the fact that they came up with no evidence needs to Jerry Nadler and his crew want to now take center stage and trying to either come up with evidence. More Muller has going to have to justify his existence. It's time to drop it and move on. Donald Trump didn't win the election because of rush how many times do people have to spend hard earned money and hire attorneys and go before these committees, and and testify and spend days and days, preparing for all of this where you begin to say you pay my legal fees. I can't afford this quick bet should be the case. It seems to me. This is always been an investigation in search of a crime, which is really an abuse of the legal process. Right. Stay right there. Hang on. We'll continue Greg Jarrett and David shown eight hundred nine four one Sean toll-free telephone number. We'll come back on the other side of pick this up. 'immigration jobs health.

But he might let it slide a little while if the talks go well stocks also going to early boost yesterday after lawmakers DC wrenched reached a tentative deal to avoid the partial government shutdown which still looms on Friday, unless the president signs off on the agreement on border security involves far less money for a wall than the White House wanted not clear whether President Trump will support this deal and that was our poll question yesterday. Do you consider the fact that you know, the? Agreements one point four billion for fifty five miles of new border fencing while the president was looking for five point seven billion. Do you consider that a victory for the president only thirty seven percent of you said, yes, sixty three percent of you said no well, no victory in the courtroom for Mexican drug Lord, El Chapo, convicted in New York in federal court. Joining us now is Tanya j powers with what went down yesterday. And also what could be ahead. Good morning. Good morning. So off goes, perhaps we'll see now this guy.

Yeah. He's he's kind of know small, which is what his name translates to shorty. He's a five and a half feet tall. So I could see maybe, you know, a large laundry thing. Yeah. Sure. That's what El Chapo translates to Nova apparently so sentenced to life in prison. No chance of parole. What's his legal team going to try to do? Well officials sentencing is in June. That's a really good question. As to what they're going to try to do because, you know, I I've like I covered this on IS trial man, you know, during the actual trial in that one. They really put up much of a defensive, you know. No, he didn't do it. Instead their defense was well, he was, you know, obviously, you know, his brother was the ringleader. This and he's just a an unwitting accomplice that sort of thing, but they really didn't put up too much of a of a thing. The sentencing is where they really kind of got into it. So it's difficult to say what they're what they're, you know, plan might be or even feel have the same lawyers at that point. All right. Donald J powers from Fox News. Thanks for the update.

The Trump administration moving to lift sanctions on three massive Russian corporations controlled in part by Russian oligarch, Oleg der, Pasqua the billionaire closely tied to to Manafort. Okay. Norm Eisen the giveaway to Russia must be evaluated in the context of the emerging evidence of Trump's quid pro quo with Putin Trump and his team clearly asked for and got Russian business and election help did he and they signal policy concessions and exchange, and is this another example and. Okay. And is he what is he rushing to do it all before he knows he's going to be forced to resign? I I mean, I don't know what else to say that because there's even or Putin has that he can release not just the P tape, obviously.
