And then lastly. I wanted a name that tied back to some deeper meaning unrelated related to color so clear comes from a latin root word laris. That means bright and brilliant And so the word play their felt really appropriate because both brilliant in terms of being innovative in for thinking but also in terms of dollar in. Was you know it kind of checked. All those boxes and it was originally just a working title.

And Andrew slowly explaining political philosophy is my kink. Glad it is for someone. Thank you good times. And we've got to do the thing we do every week, which is Thomas takes the bar exam. I have no legal training, but I have tempted to take the bar exam, and I'm doing not as badly as you might think. But sometimes very badly depending on which week it is. And let's find out how I did on question. One hundred and twelve oh, no social this firm ever failed the Bar Chen. No kidding. Yeah. And let me say, I'm I'm glad we get to book end with this. Right. Because you said at the beginning of the show that you know, the law is complicated. And we're sort of here to navigate you through that. That's true. But but one of the messages that I love about this show. One of our underlying themes is that if you bring commonsense and pay attention that the law isn't always arcane isn't always indecisive. And I will tell you that particularly when I'm talking to lawyers. But usually when I'm just talking about the show to anybody the first segment, I explained that we do is Thomas takes the bar exam. I love this. I love the fact that what I'm doing is asking you real bar exam prep question. And the folks get to hear you puzzle through that play along and see if you're right or wrong on the air. This is it's my favorite segment of the show. And it's it's a thing that I that I promote the most that that I think really kind of drives home our message that you can't understand this. It doesn't it. It's not all thirteenth century Saxony with that in mind. Here was your question number one hundred twelve this involved a man who was despondent and angry over having lost. His job went to a bar while contemplating suicide had a pistol in his pocket got drunk at the bar, some clown horn and maga- hat next to him was like, well, you know, I think downsizing is important to keep the. Economy strong. Our our our protagonist question. Mark turns over says, hey, buddy. Why don't you shut the hell up the maga- hat wearing guy says it's a free country. I can do whatever I want. And and then the despondent laid off man pulls out the gun shoots maga- hat dead. And then the question is is he guilty of first degree murder second degree murder or manslaughter. And and Thomas you felt that this was a supremely easy question famous last words immediately to d-, you're like this kind of seems like a second degree murder thing. Right. He's there. He's drunk in a bar doesn't really seem like it's deliberation. Even though deliberation can take place in an instant doesn't really seem like manslaughter because you know, he shot the guy so second degree murder that was answered D. And I am happy to. Oh, you answer. D is correct now. Right. You you could not have planned this any better for this episode, right? The the the other answers were a manslaughter because there was a reasonable explanation for his becoming enraged. That's not right. There's no reasonable explanation for becoming enraged. You know, guys just saying stuff, do you? That is not I get to shoot you. Now. Even Donald Trump's American be was first degree murder because deliberation can take place in an instant. That's true. But the drunken anger is typically not the condos goal. Cool deliberation. No. I mean, unless he looked really cool doing it like during it was wearing that mesh see-through outfit from lot awful movies twenty six then maybe any deliberations cool deliberation. Yep. So you successfully saw through that. And that was your second choice answer. And I agree that that was the only one that had a plausible chance via wrecked. See was first degree murder because he contemplated taking a human life before becoming intoxicated. And you said, well, yeah. His own right..

"What is and what is not protected by attorney client privilege this more from judge woods rulings. I envision a test as soon as we see the documents. I wanna proposal for how to move quickly on this. So there you go. That's. That's how we're going to go forward. The next step in this process is going to be the government's production of a summary of the status of the documents to Michael Cohen and to President Trump and presumably to Sean Hannity of how many documents are there. How many identify your particular client, how many identify protect particular attorney client privilege, and what's the test? How are we going to go forward and ensure that the attorneys within the DOJ who are potentially prosecuting Michael Cohen do not get to see documents that that shouldn't get to say. And again, I I wanna go back to that bottom. I riley. I'm a lawyer attorney client privilege is super important to me. And I do not want us on the left to race because you know, Cohen is, you know, a fixer scumbag, and we wanna bring down President Trump. I do not want us to race to the point where we are Bligh.

"This seems to me is to be the the obvious the very rational way to go about something like this where you wanna respect attorney client privilege, of course. But you've got a criminal who you've proven to a judge or at least given enough evidence to judge that. Hey, we can't just let this guy. It's like asking I don't know out Capone to decide which evidence to give us or something. It is exactly if I can jump in. It is exactly a callback to our. What was so bad about Watergate up Assode, right? That it was made. Since proposal I to review the tapes himself, and then second to have, you know, read deaf racist Senator John Stennis review, the material. Right. You don't want those materials to be in the hands of the person that you think has likely, but at the same time, it's pretty tyrannical just say now, the government will decide, you know. So they they have a team of people who are disinterested. Parties, I guess, and they can say, okay. This seems to be privileged information. Yup. Or not. That's exactly what makes sense. Okay. So that's the underlying legal basis. There is still pending the request by Cohen, which was joined by Trump to appoint a special master. And let me explain what that is. And what that would do from a strategic perspective. If you're Michael Cohen, the first thing you want to do in this investigation is destroy evidence. Right. So you'd like to be the one in charge of the documents, and what gets turned over you'll lost on that. So your fallback position is. Well, okay. If I can't destroy evidence. I would like to slow this down as much as possible. I would like to delay and obstruct and make it difficult in particular. If you're doing that because you were trying to front for the president. Obviously, you know, there is a clock that can be run out. On the president. So so, and especially trying to get this stuff delayed till after midterms because you know, the more Democrats have run on the midterms the worse. Exactly, right. So a special master is typically in the federal courts, it's a magistrate judge who is not the presiding judge in the case who is then appointed to handle discovery disputes. Right. And again, this is a procedure that I see all the time in my day to day job civil litigation. It's particularly in huge cases. Right. I had a a nine year long insurance coverage case, and we produced millions of documents. And what you don't wanna do is. You don't want to overburden a judge who has five hundred cases on her docket over the course of the year. Right. If all of a sudden now, all of those cases, all of the questions about documents had to go to the. Presiding judge like he'd literally only two percent of cases go to trial now. And it would that would be point zero zero two percent of cases. Right. So you appoint a special master and the special master gets to hear all of the disputes. So as you can imagine if you were to appoint a special master in this case, it would insert a level of bureaucracy in between the government and judge Kimba Wood who is presiding over this matter, and the government would be able to file a ton of these motions get hearings on them, right? The government would you know, the the the special master would have to review the document. It would just it would delay things. Right. And so judge woods order on Monday was for the government to proceed with the use of the team to prepare summaries of the document to upload all of the material into a. A database that that attorneys typically use that will then scan and sort the documents, and you know, be able to tell us so we can we will know of the documents seized by the government, right? How many pages that entails, and what percentage of those documents belong to the three people that have been alleged to have been clients of Michael Cohen, right and they'll have to turn over that database summary database to Cohen's lawyers. Right. And so judge would says after the materials been uploaded, we will know more about the volume in the content of the documents, and we can make a more intelligent choices to whether a team or a special master should be involved in the process of determining..

"What did they know and win? Did they know it essentially? So this kind of comes from a question that Matt Vernon sent us, and it has to do with eighteen USC one thousand one which I remember from previous episodes, Andrew, that's the way you usually cite the loss. That's good. That's a good sign. Matt wanted to know whether or not this could be grounds for because the reason we side to do the segments basically every week there several questions of weight. Well, what about this is this going to be the thing that gets Trump impeached is this going to be the thing? So we'll just do a standard segment on that. Now every week. So how about it Andrew is this the thing that's going to get Trump in peach? So I I like to you this as do you remember the mountain climber on the prices, right? That would yodel and move. But he got to like thirty five he fell off the mountain, right? And maybe try to find that for the intro that back in time everyone already heard but anyway. We'll see maybe they heard that. And they'll be like that. But if you each one of these that, we come up with is just another step up the mountain, and eventually he will fall off the mount, let's let's just hope that the mountain is is only as high as it was on the prices, right? All right. You know, another reference while we're talking about references. We frequently make is clear as Kushner. Play a little clip of where that came from. Like it. There is not it is to make an argument for Jared. Kushner requires you to be either willfully ignorant of law or deliberately of fuss Katori, right? Like that is a clear violation of the anti nepotism statute. You know, this is not as clear as Kushner, but it is certainly the new nuclear Kushner, guys. But it's clear as Kushner that he's violent, but but it's pretty bad. I like how. Yeah. Hashtag clear is. Well, we take ourselves awful seriously on the show. Sometimes too seriously. But other times not very seriously at all. Yeah. This was a very very important segment about a very very important principle of the law. And I think you'll hear us not be able to contain ourselves at that legal principle relieve the subject of production to itself, right? And the way in which that happens is via what we call a taint team. So this. Yeah, this is not an explicit episode. So we're not gonna go through. Be straight faced about are going to be. Strict legal terms actual legal legal dorks. And what you do is that what you to issue put another layer of lawyers that are not working on the Michael Cohen criminal investigation in between the documents and the prosecutors. I can't help them. It's okay. It's the team is you're saying it's a team that's in-between shoe like the dead lawyers. Right. It serves to separate the players who are prosecuted Michael cola from the know which end of the eight show head. All right. Totally normal legal things were making the privilege determination. And seriously. You do this all the time that used to be called? This is now no longer a remotely appropriate term it used to be called a Chinese wall. So I guess going from Chinese wall to taint team seems more more beleaguered corrective. Yeah, immature joke is ways better than racism. So it was like all right close enough. And I think I'm with them on that. Right. So like the futurama joke where they changed Uranus. To your rectum. Exactly, exactly. So so right now, there are lawyers busily at work who have nothing to do with the investigation who do not care about the substance of the document in any way whatsoever who are reviewing documents to determine whether they are on face privileged. Right. And they go take team. Yes. And they will apply the standard test, right? Which is not just is a lawyer copied on this because we know they're Coen's documents. They all are it is does the material seek legal advice from a from an identified client. And if it does then they will prepare what's called a privilege, log, which is an excel spreadsheet that just has columns for the author the recipient any copies, the subject matter title of the document when it was issued, you know, basic information like that.

It's it's that level of insight that is going to make you an outstanding. Yeah. Supreme court Justice for the I mean, this is a good start on this document. But before we adopted I just think we ought to you know, we gotta go over a little it just make a few edits a few you get your red get ready. You might be my pointers, and and I should add the environmental caretaker anchor-baby extraterrestrial aliens does not contradict in his mind. Article seven section one which says towards the goal of respecting our creator in heaven the lawful and traditional nation of Israel remains fully sovereign and the king of his Israel may choose whether to comply with this constitution at any given time and space and space is that I've pretty days Israel does not have a king. I maybe this is like a crazy minister isn't the end time thing. Yeah. I know I'm pretty sure they don't have king. So that was also neat. Oh, those were the days Andrew. So what what happened to us over these past few? Yeah. Look like, so if if if a certain thing had not happened, we would just be continuing to put out, you know, the occasional goofball sovereign citizen episode. And then we would do deep dives the kind we, you know, we still trying to for example, don't play clip from it. But I I wanna plug. I was really proud of the episode that we did on PG and the California wildfire was episode two forty one I told you in that episode things looked real bad for PGA and a couple of days later, they announced that they were declaring bankruptcy. So yeah, we would be doing all that except that through bizarre. Macintoshes we manage to elect a criminally insane game show host as president who is looting the public treasury. And so. A week into the Trump administration. I'm not making this up a week into the Trump administration was when we got our first question of when can we impeach this guy already? And so I answered that in episode forty five and this is this is probably the number one question, we get about the show these days because we play the little clip of iota mountain and people will say what what on earth is iota mountain. And and what does it mean? Well, this is this is what it me play the clip. Yeah. The birth of yellow mountain here. It is. Because people have got to know whether or not their president's. So you're not aware of any contact during the election. How many times you have to answer? This question can you shit rooms? I know you have to get up and ask a question. So put Russia is a ruse. Well, I'm not a crook. All right time for own new segment you excited for a new segment. Andrew I am very excited. Let's hope the person we paid to do this kind of stuff aka me made a nice intro for us. This is a new segment that I think we could do every week. It should be pretty easy. And then it'll be applicable for roughly two years in my in my best guess, but we'll see how the new segment is how close is Trump to being impeached. How how much longer can he possibly go? So today's version of that has to do with Flynn everybody'll probably know, of course, we record ahead of time. So around this time that we're recording is when we found out that national security adviser Flynn has has resigned been kind of made to resign. And there's a question over whether or not he broke the law. Aw. Whether or not Trump knew what he knew there's all that stuff. There's going around again more drawing more similarities to to Nixon..

"So I just want to point out. We could get a dozen people to be the supreme court of Antarctica. Well, we get five or six people at six or seven penguins and. Yeah. Yeah. Twelve hundred gold, and that might be a lot that might be a lot of money. That's the goal isn't good like a thousand bucks or something. So the spot price of gold per ounce as we record. This is one thousand two hundred eighty one dollars eighty cents. So good living. I like. Two hundred thousand dollars can discern when when writing a treatise on on a new earth government is like, but how much are the judge is going to make on pointed for tenure that is I love that the detail. How long is document that you read it you get it is it has do.

Right. He would want to replicate just adding in. So that's him like cut and paste in the US wreck code or like elements of the well, he doesn't define what these are. I mean, maybe I spent a lot of he's got some other attachments somewhere that he's he Mike, but I can't find them. But I like we'll also include the worldwide jubilee declaration.

Cordis is on a penguin can eke out a pretty good living on one hundred eight thousand dollars doing. Thirteen. No. But the reason for my including the van Halen classic love walks in the intro for this. Thank thank Brian for putting that together on short notice is article eight section sixteen which I have to redo okay it intelligent extraterrestrial individuals. I knew when he started with earth court and earth there's going to be like a Vulcan law or like a like a Caribbean. Whatever the only in the weird alien names. It's gonna come up. Okay. Here we go, but by birth within the okay, intelligent extraterrestrial. Individuals may become citizens of the earth by birth within the territorial borders of the earth. Right. So ET anchor babies. Adoption. So again, E T or long-term acceptance into the family and home of any citizen of the earth status as a political refugee recognized by the president upon a rival to the earth. Is there an earth is one at that? Excellent point. I looked through a whole lot. I think I found a problem with his document. This document uses the word president twice and only in the section. It does not tell us who the president is the the head of the work of the earth. Government is the. And I'm sorry. I have to say this article two section one the executive power of the earth government shall be vested in chief caretaker. The chief caretaker show hold office for term of four years votes to elect an executive may be submitted a time during the spring of the appropriate year in the four year cycle. The chief caretaker shall publish all earth government laws in the languages used by the nation's so no, there's no president in this document. I don't. There is an e b there will be a president who sold job. It is to decide whether intelligent extraterrestrial aliens are political refugees. But and And you you might. might type I mean, there's a lot of the plane wins with nothing else to do in an article court. So they could probably if we want to outsource that to Antarctica court, then we could think it'd make that determination. I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. And I thought maybe he I called it president and change to keep chief caretaker later and just forgot to in this passage. But no it says status as a political refugee recognized by the president upon arrival to the earth or by work visa as the president may issue at the discretion of the executive branch. Then it says the chief caretaker and earth. Government judiciary shall have the power to regulate citizenship and the earth's territorial integrity, including by intergalactic cooperation in matters of law enforcement to ensure that individuals entering the earth are not fleeing Justice..

You are now transferring the ownership of you as a sovereign entity to this fictitious corporation that the visit. Exactly. And and the the evidence of the conspiracy is your birth certificate is issued in all capital letter name that Skuld on that in all capital letters. And then they say this is the doctrine of capital dementia. Maxima the Latin phrase capita did emiss- dementia maxima, and it means the maximum loss of status. Okay. And as it turns out, if you look up that Ladan, it doesn't deed mean the maximum loss of status, but the the slate of hand that they're engaging in here is it doesn't have anything to do with capital letters. They're just saying like capital letters capita side of sound similar and capita. Minimum maximum means maximum loss of status. So when you subscribe to something and accept anything that is written in all capital letters. You are selling yourself into slavery, and you are giving up all. All of your rights. So the way you can tell these sovereign citizen people is they will appear in court, and they will designate themselves on their papers with their name in all lower case letters. Okay.

And you shouldn't be convinced yet that that he's crazy. You have to listen to the rest of this question are vaccines. Good for everyone. Answer vaccines are literally quote drugs, and quote, I am not a doctor. But I think vaccine should only be for people who desire to inject themselves with drugs. I agree with the doctors who say that clean living in natural, immunity and wholesome food and traditional cares. Good for us. Ultimately, the reason that people hand over their children to the injections of the pharmaceutical industry, by the way, interesting the English language there is because of fear is that fear warranted. I don't think so I think we should strive towards developing natural, immunity and intelligent natural remedies. All right. So that's that's neat. And I'm gonna live.

"You're always entitled to a second opinion. No reasonable lawyer will be offended when you come in and say, hey, I am looking at a couple of different lawyers right now and feel free to ask questions and say, you know, I talked to Andrew, and he said, you know, x y z has that sound to you. I I don't have nearly enough clients who say that to me. Don't go advice from podcast among. It doesn't work as well. I can't say by conference. I did don't take legal advice from me. No way. But that way that also helps you in in terms of price shopping and the third thing I would add boys. This kills me to say, but feel free to ask. When allure quotes you a rate. You know, ask is this is this your best rates? You know, can you discount this rate or in particular, ask can I get a cap on the absolute number of hours? If a lawyer says, you know, I charged three hundred ninety five dollars an hour. And I s to mate that this task will take five hours, a say, okay. We'll can I get a cap that says you're not gonna charge me more than two thousand dollars which would be about five hours on the end of that. And all of those are, you know, valid negotiating techniques that are any man. We've also had our wacky in bizarre times on the show at one of the recurring themes that you know, it's not too terribly often. But from time to time, we get to venture into absolute crazy town and. And that usually involves the sovereign citizens. How about we play a little clip where you talk about some sovereign school? Fringe on the flag. So there are people who believe that they are that they are sovereign citizens, which is to say they are not legally bound to the government of the United States for various reasons. I wanna talk about the most hilarious reason why they think they're not bound. But but so in other words, they think that they reside in the United States, but they remain a sovereign nation unto themselves, and so they kind of have this notion of engaging in diplomacy. Right. Where if if they do if they say the wrong thing, they will accident Alie subject themselves to the jurisdiction of the United States. And so if they don't right if they if they avoid saying that than the United States has no jurisdiction over them, and they don't have to pay their taxes. And in addition to that like, there's there's some. Amazing videos on I'm going to try and linked to some in the show knows that are talking about, you know, you don't have to pay speeding tickets either. And you don't have to, you know appear. You can use the roads though. That's cool. You just don't know. Yes. Because you're a sovereign nation. And the standing you, you know, diplomatic immunity. Didn't you see lethal weapon two? You can you can run around and shoot everything. So the most amazing I cannot tell you how much research took to figure this out. They believe that at that your birth certificate sets up a fictitious legal corporation. Okay. Here's an ad. Here's how it works. As far as I can tell if we have any sovereign citizens in our listening audience, please send us an Email to open arguments at g mail dot com. Because if I'm getting this wrong.

"There's no way she's getting a recount in Michigan because she's not aggrieved and the first line of argument that I got was what are you talking about? She lost right. That you can't get everyone worry rain than using. Right. And to the extent that losing is being aggrieved. She was not aggrieved on account of fraud or mistake by the election officials. She was aggrieved on account of the fact that people don't like her, right? And she got one point. Oh, seven percent of the vote. Yeah. And I will say, you know, it was a rough time. I don't you know, if there are listeners or people who might latched onto Jill Stein's plan because you know, just it was a very troublesome time. I don't I don't blame you or anything. But that's you know, that's why the shows here to try to to try to call out when when people are being drifters. And as you heard the clip Andrew Andrew called, Jill Stein out south there, you go. Yeah. And and look if you were now suppose, you're on the far left. Now, you're saying I get it. You guys are just you know, pro Clinton Democrats. So you're anti Trump, but you're also happy to go after Jill Stein. Well, no, we we have a bunch of episodes. The the most hilariously titled one is episode fifty nine which was make America great, again, a defense Trump in which we debunked a lot of bad news coming out of the left, and in particular, I kind of this this video from from Robert Reich who former Clinton labor secretary somebody who I respect. I mean, you know, just and and I think he's I think he's too hyperbolic with with his attacks on Trump. And I think the things he saying do not stand up to legal scrutiny in particular in this case. So so here's here's. Yeah. I have to say if I were a member of a democratically held house of representatives right now and those were the grounds for impeachment that were drawn up before me. I don't know that I could vote for that. I I would not want. I mean, look it's tough to say I trust in the American people not to elect a Callow moron as president. But the idea that president could be impeached for the things he says about his predecessor, I I wouldn't want to set that precedent, right? Like, I know how I felt as a democrat in two thousand eight and I and certainly the Mitch McConnell will take it further the next time around by the way once he once that impeachment having it'll be looked at the president looked at somebody the wrong way. And then. Started this. Yeah. I mean, if you if you impeach President Trump for saying bad things about his predecessor. I mean, that's essentially what this comes down to if you say that constitutes a high crime or misdemeanor then. Yeah. I would be very very concerned about what you know. President. Elizabeth Warren is going to do in twenty twenty you know, January twenty twenty one in describing the mess that she's going to inherit from President Trump. Right. So, you know. Yeah. Look, I I agree presidents ought not to to do this at the same time. Okay. It is a little weird. I know it's something we've already talked about. But it's so hard to grasp with the fact that Trump can just accuse his predecessor of a little crime like actually fabricate a crime that that that Obama did. And there's no consequences other than well sooner or later after he's ruined. The world then will vote amount of you know of office.

"So documents clearly marked confidential it's your job to put them through shredder, incinerator, whatever instead of nam gonna take them home and throw minute dumpster, so already from just these first two cases, you're gonna see the basic fact pattern that comes up time and time again, in these cases, which is to say somebody has documents. They're clearly marked confidential they know they're confidential they wind up in their possession. Either intentionally or unintentionally, and then they do something stupid. Like, yeah. I'm in a desk drawer or put him in a dumpster. They do something where they know they need to return the documents. But instead of returning the documents, they do something else. All right. But are we question from acquiring mines Andrew are? We just lefty Shiels that will just you know, truth is relative days. We're just obviously gonna be on one side of things, you know, all the time, and we're we're just going to. The democrat line on everything. Well, I am. But fortunately, you you're no hack. No, look, one of the things that's really really important to I think to to both of us is to police our own house, and to make sure that you were bringing the same level of critical skills to a right wing or neutral piece that you would bring to a left-wing piece. So I bought him. We don't have to go for the New York Times b s both sides kind of thing. Yeah. I think that's what's great about. We, you know, because we don't have some weird antiquated sense of like journalistic practices where you constantly both sides in everything. And like well as you have to just report what he side thinks. And then down the middle it there. I love the way we're able to do it on this show. Which is we still absolutely will call out win the left is wrong, especially when it's clear law thing that injures like now, they're just wrong about this. But that doesn't at all mean that we take a bow sides approach or that the, you know, the left is just as bad as a right there. I think we're we're able to easily walk that line in a way that that I very comfortable with that make sense. Well, thanks. I appreciate the I still get hate mail over episode five which in which I came out and I call. Called Jill Stein Griffin and a con artist. And I said this was this was the night that she announced that she was raising funds to get a recount, then the recount was going to overturn the election in Wisconsin. Michigan Pennsylvania was gonna make Hillary Clinton president. And yeah, why don't we had some record of what you said back nine Ryan. Why don't you play a clip? I'm talking about merely motivation and merely incentive like and just logically. If there was something there, the first person who would wanna capitalize is Hillary. But I was gonna let you take the actual legal version of well at at, but okay. But this this is still an opening arguments theme, right? The the law often validates your commonsense. Notions. Right. And so yes, as a as a common sense notion, we think if you are the person that are that is hurt. Right. Hillary Clinton than the person who should be filing. The lawsuit should be Hillary Clinton, and that then becomes incorporated in the notion of standing by the idea that you know, courts don't issue advisory opinions, and they don't allow you to sue on somebody else's behalf. Right. The ideas if you have a right that is to be vindicated. The let that person bring that. Lawsuit. If they choose not to well the courts aren't going to get involved. And that's you know, that's a a check and balance inherent in the judicial system that goes all the way back to the founding of the Republic. Right.

"It wasn't settlement agreement. It was being reported. As does it matter if Donald Trump signed it. All of those things were utterly insignificant in comparison to what stormy Daniels established. And and ultimately, you know, what set in motion, I think potentially what could take down Donald Trump as president, right, Michael. Let me take a second to to echo that. Because I I've been trying out a new podcast. Yeah. I I'm I'm a sucker for New York Times podcast. I guess, and I've been listening to the argument where you know, the some of the opinion columnists argue about stuff on there. And the to the point where I think what's amazing about the stormy Daniels thing as you were way ahead of it. And it's so significant that, you know, Rostow fit the conservative columnist. He there was a they were kinda debating what might, you know, take down. I think there are debating the question was how important is this Russia stuff like how much do we know about the the Russia's stuff with with Trump and conservative Rostow fit said and. And this is his opinion. But but I think it's interesting. He said, yeah, I don't think the Russia stuff anything that we found is impeachable. You know, we might argue with that. But this is his opinion. However, I think the stormy Daniels stuff is and that's coming from a conservative. And I I think that shows how important this was. And if you go back and look at the dates how far ahead of it Andrew was. And I I think it's it's pretty incredible. And just before anyone wonders we also clarified later on. We're not gonna play it or anything. But the lawsuit that got thrown out where stormy Daniels may have to pay Trump's legal fees. That's a different totally different lawsuit. Yet didn't a lot of people reported. Like, this means all of the Daniels thing is over now, totally different thing. Yeah. I I don't I think a lot of folks no us from stormy Daniels. So, you know, maybe we don't we don't need to play clip from that. I do wanna play clip from one of our first deep dives to really go viral. And garner. A lot of attention. That was episode thirteen Hillary Clinton's damned emails, and I was really proud of of what we did in that episode. I kinda wish the Hillary Clinton campaign had done this. But but what we did was go through every single published decision on the disclosure of confidential documents to debunk the claim that was circulating by by. Then just pundit route Rudy Giuliani that, you know, lock her up. This is if Hillary Clinton's last name, we're Smith she'd be bussed in rocks in Leavenworth, and and that's not true. And and and I I really like this this small clip that talks about what that statute was actually meant to to prosecute. All right play. Brian USB Gafni nineteen Eighty-three same. Court air force staff. Search and he was a guy who was in the chain of command. And he was required to destroy confidential materials. Can all right instead what he did was took them home with him and threw them into a dumpster by his house, and because this is nine hundred eighty three and we were not all helicopter parents in nineteen Eighty-three cancer playing dumpsters and bunch of kids were playing in the dumpsters. They found the documents. They pulled them out. They show them to their parents parents called the air force. And the air force said what on earth doing my basic contention was this is a quote from the case. I love it. So I have to read it might basic intention was at the time when I was to do destruction.

I think that one thing I've learned from you over the the years of doing this show is that the law is very complicated. There's a reason that you have to kind of, you know, get educated in order, it's the law and oftentimes not always. But but more than half the time the way a lot of the media covers major cases major breaking Legal News the way, they covered is wrong. And it's unfortunate. But it's I guess it's good for us. It's job security for us. Because there I have just been there's no end to how impressed I have been with Andrew you have a job that not too many people can do because you're able to break these things down in a way where sometimes and there's two categories we're going to see with these clips sometimes it's, hey, here's a thing. We should be. Just totally alarmed about that we aren't because people haven't noticed it cough. Stormy daniels. You know, kind of thing. Nobody's notices we should be. But sometimes there's something that everybody is alarmed about and panicking about and and Andrew will say, no, actually, you shouldn't be as worried about this as you might be. And I think that you've overwhelmingly been right in in those kinds of interpretations, and those kinds of stories, and of course, if you ever get anything wrong, you're the first to admit it with an Andrew was wrong segment. So that's why you can rely on the show. I really do tell people. I'm so proud of the show. And it's because it's not me. It's you that if you wanna make sense of what's going on. And the the fact that that the news these days with the Trump administration so much of it requires legal analyst a good legal analysts who who doesn't have. Any other agenda? But wanting to explain it to you in a way that that actually make sense. It really requires that. And I I think there's so much perspective that you add to these stores. So I think we should start off with some stuff that we are really proud of. And personally, I'm very proud of two Major Andrew Torres was right kind of accomplishments. And I think we should start with stormy Daniels. Well, you know that that was a pretty big episode for us it it did one hundred thousand downloads. I was really excited about the the stormy Daniels episode, and I guess I don't know if I've told the story on the air yet. But but what happens is throughout the week as I'm preparing for the show. I will compile stories and people will compile them for me. Right. So we've mentioned we've thanked some of the people who do that Deborah Smith, Ashley Smith and Theresa Gomez in particular. And so what I do is. I keep them in a little directory in in my inbox just a little opening arguments directory, and this was the first weekend March, I was visiting my parents at their retirement community in Florida. And and I believe Debra who sent me the the fairy first stormy Daniels story, which I had just filed off in a directory of okay while look at this when I get some downtime, and maybe that will make a good a or c segment write a little book ending segment smaller. It's it's got a Trump angle to it. It's it's you know, maybe has the potential to be an amusing story because of the porn angle. And then I opened up the first story. And what I always do when I get a story is make sure that I can find the underlying court documents. Right. And and I pulled up the documents. And and and that's when I called you. And I said Thomas we got a record on this. And we have to record on it now because everybody is focused on a question that doesn't have the slightest thing to do with why this is a big deal. Right.

Here's what we're gonna do. We're doing a bit of a kind of a combination of a best of and like a advertisement for the show in a way. It's like we wanted to go through and find some of Andrew's best moments best predictions. You know, good times on the show. Interesting things that happened. But also, if it might be a way if anyone ever asks you. Or if you're trying to what you should do as a good listener spread the word about the show.

Here's here's what some of the highlights are now, obviously, this is of course, going to be just a grossly inadequate in terms of two hundred and fifty usually sixty to ninety minute episodes. You know, there's a lot that we've gone through, but this'll be a little taste of what we're about. So if you wanna share the show out with people, this might be a good way to say, hey, here's what these guys are all about.

Whether you wanna listen to this one because it will have clips of old shows, but we're also going to talk about them and talk about the show. So it's up to you.

Ed at look we're going to go back, you know, three years here. So I don't know when I went I was excited going through the clips and that was me talking. So hopefully, hopefully, everyone enjoys it. But now, I thought it was a great introduction Thomas. All right. So if you're new to the show, maybe you've had this shared with you question. Andrew what is this show all about? So the way I viewed this show, and I'm curious how you answer that question Thomas. But I've you the show as long form serious investigative journalism into the news in any story that has a legal component to them. And I would add you know, to to Cotsakos to that. Right. One. We come at it from a left leaning perspective. Right. We're liberals were left of center and number two that we try not to take ourselves too. Seriously. We take the subject matter very very seriously. But we try and have fun here. If I needed to condense that down into one sentence rice. If that's the elevator pitch..

"Read this on SP nation, folks. Random. You don't read this on it row bible for not allowed them pro or, but Vars still yell, only get from Chris Wesseling and NFL dot com. And I, I should note that Aaron Rodgers even though their offense did not play very well as a unit last week against the bills moving better, which is a good sign that perhaps his legs are getting back up to speed, move to number four, Alvin Kamara running back New Orleans Saints, Mark. He is super impressive this season because this is the year, the first quarter of the season. He did it on his own and the saints than skip a beat back there. He can do it all. And I, I guess I with this whole pull the player from the offense thing. I would struggle a little bit. If you pull Alvin Kamara from this offense, you still have what they've had all along, which is drew Brees and the parts around him. But Alvin Kamara to me is such a different player than they've ever had. But if you pulled drew Brees and you put in some other no name or what happens, you've got to MVP candidates on that offense for a good reason. But to me. Alvin Kamara is doing things that no other running back in football can do right now, and he's doing it no matter who else is on the field and he's a special player and they know it the the touchdown that he scored the balance that he showed last week on the goal line. I think that's what really separates him is that he can be that that receiver essentially running routes and beating linebackers legacy. But it can also you could also with stand linebackers crunching him on the goal line and keep his balance. That's why I call him an alien like he has like a balance that I, it's hard to measure that, but it's better than any running back. I can remember. I'm just glad he was born when he was. He's probably this era. I was the newer that could you. You mentioned his goal on abilities. Do you believe that now that Mark Ingram is backed that they'll have a similar role to less season, or do you think Kamara is kind of the lead dog here as opposed to a one? Two punch? I think he was the lead dog by the end of last year, and I don't think it's real. Has to change too much because he's only run the ball fifty six times this year. You probably won't get games like last week where he had nineteen Carey's as often, but they've been pretty conservative with him running. He's caught the ball MAURICE third in reception. So on pace to break Matt forte, single season record for receptions by running back. He's going to go over one hundred less. He gets injured. It's a great problem for them to have to figure that out the top three Khalil Mack linebacker bears. I think everyone has been tracking. This guy's season gets traded from the raiders and has just become a monster. He's on pace for twenty sacks and thirteen forced fumbles and his is the face of that defense right now. And then you have Jared Goff at number two, getting some love. This has been, it's been funny to Jared Goff narrative in this NFL season the first two weeks. You had the after the second week you had the gay manager narrative Roldan. Now the last two weeks when he's been lighting it up, it's like the totally opposite side of it where it's like Jerry gobs actually a superstar guys. He's closer to that list. You'd have to be blind to watch Jared Goff the last two weeks and think that he's a game manager when he's making what Jim Murray once said about Dan Marino double keyhole throws not just putting it through one keyhole but to keep the through Turkey wholesome and then through a Turkey Lang. So many holes putting the ball right on his receivers, hands, twenty thirty forty fifty yards..

"Chiefs, eight, Todd Gurley, running back Rams seven tyreek hill west. You've been singing the praises of that wide receiver all season thought he might even be a little higher this list. Yeah, originally had them higher and then he kinda disappeared for stretches of the last two games. I do think he's very valuable for what he does. Even when he's not touching the ball that he really opens the spacing for this offense and they have as much spacing. Any offense in the league. And I think that's why I think he has a Randy moss like affect because of his speed and he and that's why Alex Smith was an MVP candidate is one of the reasons why Patrick Mahomes going to be an MVP candidate because Atari exhales tyreek hills presence out. And there's no other number one type of receiver that I guess maybe there are, but they don't make plays like tyreek hill where when they needed to play in the punt return game to be made the other night, that's when you put tyrod kill back there. He's only he's only returned a handful of punched this year. In three of them have gone for big distances. He set them up to start making that comeback. The other one other MVP note. Like I think Zeke Elliot, no matter what he does probably faces a little bit of an uphill climb, even though is on the team that gets more celebration than any other team combined it because if they go seven and nine or six and ten or they don't make the playoffs. Again, if you look at the way the MVP voting happens nine out of ten times that are attached to a high flying winning team. I have even more respect for Zeke Elliot through the first four weeks that I've. I've had in the past because he's doing this. He's he's showing this year. Certain guys will disappear running backs will disappear when they don't have quite the cast that they need around him and he's still bad ass right now, even with the Cowboys kind of going uphill on offense. He's a great guy to think about what would the team would be like without him, they'd be terrible like, no, I'd be going for the fan. Fairly. The Rams would be fine without Todd Gurley. They would figure it out. The Cowboys would be one in fifty, be hot mess. The play that won that game. Other than the field goal of course, is a girl Zico down the sideline and taking a ball over over shoulder and bringing and not a lot of running backs can make that play. Let's move to number six, Aaron Rodgers. And number five drew Brees so two quarterbacks to mainstays to future hall of famers still getting it done. Yeah, I wanted to point out that breeze missed a couple of touchdowns in week two, but is otherwise been just about perfect. He didn't have the greatest game about against the giants, but he's still completing about seventy six percent of his passes which would shatter his own record for a single season seventy six, yes, insane and Aaron Rodgers. I mean what he did week one the largest fourth quarter comeback in the ninety eight year nine ninety eight year history of the Packers was amazing. And to me, like, I think. Some of the prettiest throws of the season have been dropped by Packers wide receivers, including a pair off one foot with just a flick of the wrist that were perfectly placed in devante Adams, hands and drama, Allison's hands in the end zone and the red zone last week. And this game should have been way better than twenty two to nothing in the Packers, like a seasoned bullfighter out of a Hemingway novel. Yeah, sort of went to the Bank twice on that. If you got a good line in the podcast, you gotta you let me finish the sense. I'm enjoying sense.

"He wants to give him to his next team essentially in it's not a terrible idea to take off some time in the middle of his career. You just shouldn't do it while you're on a team like this. Moving on this is suspension return week, a host of players. Many of them. Important players to their teams are back inaction after missing the four weeks of the season either due to personal conduct policy violations or the drug policy violation. So here's a list and it's a, it's a, it's a, it's a team that could take on the graybeards players here, patriots wide receiver. Julian Edelman, you're excited about that. Ricky Hollywood, I'm sell excited. You love that man, saints running saints, running back then control Ingram, Bengals linebacker manti as Bertha. CT Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving, Robert turban of colts, Jimmy Smith of the ravens. Darryl Worley of the raiders a lot of big time players back in action was, yeah, I was looking at this list to see who the best player is, and I think it's probably Jimmy Smith, but the ravens defense has done pretty well without him. Julian Edelman might be the most needed player on this list. Because the patriots just haven't been able to move the ball through their wide receivers this year, Thomas Davis will be back soon. The Panthers had the by weeks, right back in a week. That's a big addition. But Jimmy Smith to me is the one that stands out because the ravens right now are the hardest team to pass on in the league already. What you're adding a number one cornerback to a team that's the hardest to pass on in a league where everyone can pass. That's pretty like John was kind of feel bad for him. Grand Caro probably get less snaps Marlin Humphries playing too well to to lose any snaps that Robert turban. I never would have thought that the colts needed him so desperately, but he should come in and start immediately. I like David Ervine coming back alongside DeMarcus, Lawrence against the Texans offensive line on Sunday night. One of the Cowboys defensive ends will be suspended by noon tomorrow. No doubt gas, the there has to be one at, I think Fontes perfect to four Bengals team that has been destroyed by the run weeks in a row. They miss Paul Gunter their defensive coordinator. It's been. On a quiet story that their defense is way worse, especially their their linebackers and they're secondary than they were compared to a year ago. Just remember, don't get too comfortable with Monday's perfect on the field till gets right, no doubt about it. But I mean, we'll see your forty a flying spirit lodge on his first academic year. Just get him for a quarter to suspend it all the time before the new rules do it in practice. I'll just take out a coat. I think he's played three career games actually. Up on a NFL dot com. Preston Brown Bengals linebacker set onto Berkovic was looking a little fat around the sides. Ooh, kicker update. I couldn't Feick in do it. Sam, is it fixing? I think it's fixed, but I like what you did there, but it's it's it's over. Sometimes you got to stretch the pronunciation for the joke. He's been waived by the ramps, not a surprise. Last Thursday night against the Vikings. He struggled again, missing two, three field goal temps. Excuse me, miss two of three since taking over for Greg legs. Arline who's got that injury, but he missed one on Thursday night that that would assaulted the game away was a bad miss on a short kick, and you had a feeling it was over for Sam, and now it is so Kiera Santos assigned. What is going on? You wanna talk about collusion. No, let's let's be real here. KYW and I get that hi four best. It'd be the kicker. The rail tried out though, so they gave him out Cairo. Santos has been a better kicker throughout his life where you can get a new kicker. He take that back was no. You look at, you could say, oh, he had a better workout, maybe maybe chi- missed off the upright or something, whatever. Go back to the tape. Watch tape in Minnesota. Last year. I had a nice year to get things changed. Things change. Kickers. Is anyone ever watched one of these kicker trials? Because a lot of times the guy who wins his surprising..
