"Okay so yeah there is Joe Biden saying he's not going to pay what is not obstruction of justice I mean I was just informed by the Democrats that if your subpoena and you don't show up and challenge it in court that alone is obstruction of justice if you read answers Darby age three hundred page report he makes this claim he suggests that if you're a member of the executive branch you don't show up for a subpoena that in and of itself constitutes obstruction justice that's absolutely nonsense but there is Joe Biden basically saying he'll do that if you subpoena me I am not showing up under any circumstances I was talking with my with my business partner Jeremy boring last night on our daily wire backstage we're talking about what exactly the Republican Senate strategy should be in terms of these hearings there's two basic strategies on the table strategy one seems to be the one that Mitch McConnell wants to pursue McConnell's very good is job when it comes to this sort of stuff and this strategy is let's just move fast on it get out of the way move forward to the election I get it right the more the headlines are out there unless you're focusing in on the Democrats it makes some sense on the other hand there's a case to be made that the Republicans in the Senate should just face plant the Democrats they don't have the evidence they should call Biden this call hunter this call Adam Schiff this call to whistle blower this call everybody and they should subpoena them and not only should they subpoenaed them they should have the other phone records because that is what Adam Schiff did to Rudy Giuliani use went direct to AT and T. and as a TNT for all the phone records for Rudy Giuliani and apparently all the phone records for people like Devin Nunes and according to Joel Pollak writing over Breitbart some journalists are beginning to worry that their phone records may have been caught up in snooping conducted by representative Adam Schiff and revealed in the house intelligence committee three hundred page report in that report which have unveiled on Tuesday the committee uses eighteen T. phone records to draw connections between a ranking member Devin Nunes and his staff president from personal attorney re Giuliani investigative journalist John Solomon and now indicted Ukrainian American businessmen left harness their port lists phone calls between all of those named individuals it doesn't describe the contents of the call and he just they're all part of a scheme to quote unquote smear former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Evanovich this mere campaign it forms part of the Democrats case against the president it's unclear exactly whose phone calls from other media reports were actually requested from eighteen T. news revealed Wednesday evening that she could use a subpoena phone numbers on recognized at the time to construct a record of the ranking members phone conversations so apparently it sounds like she's actually requested the phone information for Devin Nunes as actual political rival so did you get you now subpoena all of the agency records for Joe Biden the Senate get to do that going all the way back to twenty sixteen season Ukrainians talking to they get to know them shift maybe I should double shifts and find out who he was talking to throughout this whole process and they just reveal that publicly because after all it's good enough for shift why should be good enough Republicans and a bunch of reporters are wondering publicly whether they were caught up in the shift sort of dragnet it's pretty pretty astonishing stuff so case number one for McConnell is go ahead and and push this thing to its limit force the Democrats to defend their procedures for the Democrats to get up and testify and then case number two is just dispense with this thing we already know what it's going to be don't make it last any longer than it has to move on to the lecture I see sort of the case for for both things but I am tempted to say that somebody in the Senate ought to make bank often just going after the Democrats on the stuff because it is perfectly obvious the Democrats have a reach and they know they've overreached that's why the rushing this thing if they thought this was a political boon do you think they'd be rushing it when's the last time politicians rush something they thought was helping them Democrats were perfectly sanguine about government shutdowns in the past and troubles president because they believe that it helps them don't you think it would be stretching this thanks to its full extent if they could but they can't they don't got it so we'll see how the Senate trial manifest but suffice it to say that Republicans have some bricks they can wield here are you coming up we'll be joined by Alan Dershowitz he's gonna stop by to discuss his new book plus we'll ask him about impeachment.

"Free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast out by tapping the link in the show notes. So I would just really strongly recommend much second Twitter thread on this to people. I'm just gonna read it. He says, people who say there were no underlying crimes, and therefore, the president could not have intended to illegally obstruct, the investigation, and therefore cannot be impeached, arresting the arguments several falsehoods, one, they say that we're no underlying crimes. In fact, there were many crimes revealed by the investigation, some of which were charged and some of which were not, but are nonetheless described report to, they say, obstruction of Justice requires an underlying crime. In fact, obstruction Justice, does not require the prosecution of underlying crime. And there's a logical reason for that. Prosecutors might not charge a crime precisely because obstruction of Justice denied them timely access to evidence that could lead to a prosecution. If an underlying crime required them, prosecutors could struck could charge obstruction of Justice, only if it were unsuccessful in completely obstructing, the investigation, this would make no sense. He's a few other things, but. I think that's basically. Right. And clearly right. And it's interesting. I mean, there's a whole context of like courage vis-a-vis, other Republicans in the primate challenge is gonna face. But what I think is actually interesting about this is that most Trump critics are also members of the Democratic Party, and they are invested in a larger sense in the political success of the democrat party, and they have not crazy concerns about pushing forward with a seemingly unpopular and doomed in the Senate impeachment inquiry, precisely because it must doesn't care about that. He can sort of throw this on the table. But I think it's I think it's basically. Right. You know, I mean that, like, what you have here, described in the report is pretty clearly a situation in which Donald Trump used and tried to use his powers of office in inappropriate ways to stifle investigations. We don't know. Whether he personally could have been charged with something had he not screwed around with the Manafort thing. But even assuming he's completely innocent. It's like it's not appropriate to meddle with the operation of criminal investigations to help out your friend, Mike Flynn to help out your ex campaign manager Paul Manafort. Like if you just described to bear situation, the abstract right like the mayor of mid sized city axe, fired the police chief, because the police chief was investigating something, and the mayor knew that the investigation would get his buddy locked up in jail. Like you'd say that was right like to an extent, like it's stupid to say just ignore the politics and think about the facts because like you can't take the politics at politics that said, you know, sometimes, it's, it's clarifying to read a tweet store that doesn't talk about the politics of the situation. I would actually say that it's clarifying also because the constitution doesn't require congress to impeach the president. If the president has require has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. Right. Like congress does have a choice. Yes. So in theory, and obviously, you would never have this. But in theory, you could have Mitch McConnell come out and say, yeah, we agree that the president committed impeachable offenses. But we the Senate the body of it would be conducting the trial of whether he you know, like whether having been impeached, he should be removed from office are ruled by Republicans..

"With Michael Bauer from NBC News Radio attorney general William bar decided not to appear before the House Judiciary committee for technical reasons. Jerry Nadler, who is the head of said this committee, not happy. What's going on? Now. Michael good morning. We're seeing showdown that is beginning this morning. So it'll lead off the week on a great way. You're seeing this showdown between the attorney general and Democrats in congress as lawmakers are saying that they're prepared to begin contempt proceedings against the attorney general over handing over a full on redacted Muller reports. So yes, having the attorney general not show up last week was annoying seemed like an element of stonewalling the house and the Democrats in the house. But now, you've got House Judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler giving a third deadline to both. The attorney General Department of Justice to get a full unredacted report is due by nine AM this morning, and that Nadler put bar on notice that if the committee does not get that report, they will move towards contempt proceedings and seek further legal recourse, which could be fines for the attorney general in the Justice department. It could be if they were looking for a visual, technically, I guess, you could have the attorney general arrested on some level in theory. Whether that. It actually happens. Point hopefully, would never get to that point in the first place. But the Justice department is at least at this point being looked at is waiting to see if they're going to comply at nine AM this morning of the Justice department declining to comment on the letter that was written by Nadler. But but committee report is to not just it's corruption and obstruction Justice investigation against President Trump. But also to the fact that they are responsible in congress to legislate on matters like integrity of elections or relations to foreign powers and that whole first part of the investigation relates the twenty sixteen meddling by Russians in the into our election. So they want to see that full on reductive report if they're supposed to create legislation to prevent that from happening again more than just a second. But I mean, can they really do that can they sue? And or throw an attorney general cabinet member of the president of the United States in the in the big house. They don't ever want to get to that point. They hope that it would never get to that point. They also want to figure out why it is third time that the attorney general and Justice department don't wanna turn over that full report. So, you know, since the time that this initially went down since the time that they I requested. It would seem as though the attorney general the Justice department, and frankly, the house would all have the ability to request from judges that that grand jury testimony be released and that somebody would have done that on some level. If nobody was trying to get in the way and slow this whole process down. So there's a lot of questions about that that I think need to be answered. And when you don't get the attorney general coming and speaking with you, it seems as though at least this particular case, the house feels this is the movie that they have to make Michael second question. That is what's the latest on Muller? President Trump tweeting out saying that Muller shouldn't testify before congress and the Democrats should get a redo because there was no Grammy went on later. The New York Times reporting that the the. The details are going to be coming out about how the Democrats were spying on him. What's latest on these subjects? Absolutely, right. The president has made those statements which is weird because you flip flopped from the president another one that's just flipping and flopping like crazy. You had to recently as Friday, the president saying that the attorney general Bill bar would be the one making the decision on whether Muller to a congress. We've already heard from the attorney general mid week last week when he testified in front of the Senate that he had no problem with the with the Muller speaking to congress, but that's not what congress congress they've been trying to work with and getting him booked through the attorney general as well as the department of Justice to have him come testify, and they weren't getting anywhere. So they had to work an end around and actually communicate with the Muller team in order to get this tentative date of may fifteenth set aside, so that he come testify, and then after that date was released you're the president's say, there's no reason for him to come speak there. But again, this is what congress says, it's it's congress not the attorney general it's charged with the terminating weather particular presidential conduct amounts to a high crime or misdemeanor meriting impeachment. That has nothing to do with the district attorney or the attorney general rather? So that's why they're requesting all of this information. In order to conduct their investigation and getting in the way of that investigation. Well, that goes back to the obstruction charges which could come against the attorney general if he does not turn over that Mullah report. All right,.

"To stop Muller from doing his job. So I guess the theory goes now, we don't okay, he didn't collude with the Russians and he didn't specifically do anything to stop Muller, but attempted obstruction Justice of a crime never occurred. I guess is sort of the new standard around here. We'll see if that makes any sense to me doesn't thought about it. He may have talked to some people about it. But Trump didn't do it. Anyway, I'm wondering now has you listen to this your eyes start to glaze over at some point. You're like, oh my gosh. I think a lot of just go through this. I'm just talking about Americans in general. Yes. Even the ones against Trump have sort of been over this for a while. Now, like, okay, they, you know, their opinion would be they didn't get it. How much longer we going to go on with this? Because a lot of Democrats are fearing the logger we play this out the less chance we have to get that guy out office because his base is going to get riled up. But linzie also looks at the other side of this. Meaning how the people who I started investigating Trump and who are investigating Hillary Clinton acted because they hated him. You know that from stroke and Lisa page number. Yes. And those tax so he wanted to compare this with the Muller investigation. So he read some of the texts August twenty sixteen struck a whole to blame the Pantene throughout for consideration. Andy's.

"And I will tell you the following. You have to have specific intent to obstruct Justice. If there's no underlying crime. Pretty hard to figure out what intent might be. If there was never crime to begin with. The president never did anything to stop Muller from doing his job. So I guess theory goes now, okay? He didn't collude with the Russians and he didn't specifically do anything to stop Muller, but attempted obstruction Justice of crime never occurred. I guess is sort of the new standard around here. We'll see if that makes any sense to me it doesn't. Now, there's another campaign Clinton campaign. What have we learned from this report the Russians interfered in our election?

Pat, Kuhnen our friend who we've had on us. Ed so women are too emotionally president, but male presidents or two motions to technically obstruct Justice talking about the president's emotions is insane. When it comes to the law. Yeah. Still looking Chris Wallace said the same thing essentially on Fox News. There's gotta be some cognitive dissonance going on over there. Because then you're going to have I'm sure all the other people doing the bar Trump. Daily edge said this is true bar visibly squirmed under the most gentle of questioning. Yeah, they also say saying Trump had no correct motives when he can commit a ten x of obstruction Justice does not pass the smell test. I don't think for anybody.

"Gary McNamara. Eight six six ninety Red Eye Radio coming up from CNN from yesterday where democrat out there talking about the why you should impeach Trump. And getting pushback from Jake tapper was really really interesting that it's there. There's nothing new that keep going back to the same old same old things that aren't obstruction Justice. Right. And we'll get to that coming up in a little bit. It's like come up with something new because they haven't. And also did you see that the head of the the college cheating rain? Pleaded guilty, by the way. There was a deal. He pleaded guilty. And and he could serve close to seventy years in in prison, but he walked through and says seven hundred and fifty families. He goes, look, I did it all I arranged. And we'll have some of what he actually said. And just how deep this went coming up following the bottom of the hour because it is really fascinating one wonders how often this happens you, and I talked about this earlier. We've got a lot of discussion. Well, universities aren't fair. There's not fair and there's illegal, right? Nothing is completely fair that you're going to find someone who says that's not fair in any equation. That's not fair because that's not fair because. You can then you have to to have the legal discussion of what is against the law, and what is not. In today's world. There's there's a number of influences, I guess along the way. In any given chain of events. About the response has been well politicians walk into these offices of these, you know, the dean's office or whatever and shakes a hand. And then all of a sudden his kid gets in. You know? That's that's on the. Because at that point. That's that is them looking at if the kid is smart enough passes, the the SAT with flying colors. And it helps the school and recruiting. Wow. This is the grandson of the former vice president. They can boast about that. We got the whole thing that, you know, legacy isn't fair. We're not talking about what's fair. Recruiting and you can say you don't like them to use that as recruiting if it works. They're going to use that as recruiting as long as it's legal. Then I'm I really don't have a problem with it. I don't I don't operate that way. I don't endorse people that way because I think the problem with that arrest of that is all of a sudden, he's a senior he's the grandson of the former vice president. Oh, then it comes out to the former vice president committed a crime because if you live by that sword, you die by that sort and that's the risk. It's like any political endorsement or any endorsement of anybody who was famous who is wealthy who was a high profile. Well, if they're not family, it's going to be hard to get my endorsement, but that's not the way those schools operating as long as they're operating legally. Then I really don't have a say so there because I'm not sending them at least. I'm not saying sending them tuition for any of my children. I may be sending them some of my tax dollars. And I would love to see. Oversight reform that level. Well, we've been screaming about that and here, and and a private school really can have whatever they choose as to what qualifies you to be a better candidate to go to their university. Doesn't have to be fair. Right. Doesn't necessarily have to be based on grades as we know. Right athletes. Get in even not atheletes posing. We'll.

"Luke Rosiak investigative reporter with the daily caller is new book, obstruction of Justice, how the deep state risked national security to protect the Democrats. When you look at the network a wan put together. How did they not know that they were being the he's in Pakistan getting into all twenty percent of the congressional Democrats emails and their secrets and getting paid and not even working. Well, and that's why this would have been the trial of the century. If he was charged into went to trial because forty four Democrats people are always running their mouth about Trump like Ted lieu members of the intelligence committee who hired this guy, and they're all talking about the DNC and all this and these guys are completely incompetent when it comes to their cybersecurity. They didn't vet these people to gave them all the access to all their files. And then they want to pretend it doesn't. It didn't happen because it's it's all about the narrative for them. It's not the security of our country. And so when I started pursuing this guy. At some point. It really is charged me a story about a cover up rather than a hack. It's both. But what's interesting to me? Now is Nancy Pelosi is practically as manipulative as you know, Iman one in terms of the way that she orchestrated this cover up when she was not in power. And it really makes you think now that she's in charge of the house of representatives. I mean, if if this is the kind of influence that she could exert over the last couple of years by working back channels, and you know, working the media and working the bureaucracy bat down in the deep state to circumvent the formal control. Can you imagine? What what she could do now that she's actually speaker? I it's literally you you you lay out a road map of corruption and cover ups, and how in fact, the department of Justice ignored witnesses that would testify that the ones were peddling. This information to foreign officials. I'm gonna get into the what they got where they sold it. How much money they got and how they were able to prevent the FBI from doing their job. We'll continue Luke Rosiak obstruction. Justice how the deep state wrist national security to protect the Democrats that's on Hannity dot com.

"To prove witness tampering because you have because of the intent that you have to show corruption the anything that's obstruction Justice is hard. But it's the president of the United States who himself has said essentially on the prosecutor and chief. I am also going to nominate people to be attorney general who believes that my power is so plenary that I direct criminal prosecution. So we have the legal standard. But we also have the politics, and the what I would consider something that comes up to the line of abuse of power that has to be taken into account by congress. If Michael Cohen has lied previously to congressional committees a committee, why tell the truth now, look there's nothing uncommon. Unfortunately about people who have done wrong figuring out, but it serves them better to do. Right. So you may lie in the first instance, and then figure out oh that is not a good idea. I will be better off. If I start telling the truth. That's essentially what Michael Cohen has said. Yes, I lied. I live for reasons. Now, I wish I hadn't lied now. I'm going to tell the truth. It's absolute Djinnit and common in our system for those on the other side of that to say, but why believe that person in this instance, the people saying don't believe Michael Cohen are also people themselves Donald Trump in particular was a long list of statements. He has made that are misrepresentations were factually inaccurate. Finally, what might we learn from or about all metaphor to more that we don't already know. I don't know that we're gonna learn that much. I think that honestly this is important that what the federal judges saying in this case is I want to see you. These are very serious allegations. You're going to appear with your permission to where I didn't mean to cut you got permission to wear a suit to court tomorrow. Even though there will be no pictures because it's federal court just sketches, right? Interesting. Interesting. I, but I I think the reality is it's a hearing. I don't know what we will learn I think it's impossible not to take very seriously what a special counsel in this case. Robert Muller said back in December. Which is they have evidence evidence of conversations between Manafort and the administration directly and indirectly after their plea agreement with him. I mean after their plea agreement and cooperation agreement with Paul Manafort, those are serious allegations. And if you put those together with allegations about what this administration has been doing around the Muller investigation in totality in totality. There is the possibility that one day, we might see a legitimate, obstruction of Justice fact pattern you and your patterns counselor. We are thankful for your wise counsel. Thank you as always for coming by Maya Wiley, what is the chance coming up. We will be covering a state of the union address again in this very studio five days from now.
