It's not awed to see female nominee for a party, and the the vaccine nature of the notion of female power just becomes less strange. And I think that seems to be what has borne itself out on certainly the state levels seen it with governors races. Where you know, the men are elected over and over again.

"And do you anticipate this continuing to plague her her campaign the way that it did for Hillary Clinton both times three ramble? You know, I think one of the interesting things about that question is unlike twenty sixteen there, an unlike really any campaign that I can think of here you're going to have probably four top tier women candidates. In addition to Warren, you could you could also have Amy klobuchar from an Asada a Senator from Minnesota, you could have Christian Gillaibrand from New York, and then there's Kamla Harris. But if you do have a field with four strong women running for viable female candidates that I think the dynamic shifts a little bit. And I think it would be hard for people to say, I just there's something about all of them. I don't. Like, I mean, maybe coming. To nominate somebody one of them has to be likable. Right. Or you know, the way I feel like that gets at this question of like, what does the like ability even mean when we use it in the in the sense of political campaigning. Yeah. Well, I love that question because you look at somebody like Bernie Sanders his serve like aggressively. Unlikable? I am told that I don't have a sense of humour. So I'm going to start off with a joke. Y'all ready for joke. So when people tell you all tra- serious and grumpy you tell them that you heard me tell the joke. You know? It's like part of his brand that he's a little rough and a little grumpy, but it doesn't it works for him. And it doesn't mean you don't want to spend time with him. Like, I've traveled with Bernie, and I've dealt with grumpy burning and it's all like kind of charming. So it is an intangible, and that's why I think it can be frustrating for women and for people who are pushing more women to run for offices. It's a gut reaction that they can't quite articulate. And so they just sort of lump it into this concept of likability. It's something that women do contend with and an amendment to. I mean, don't get me wrong. I mean you look at presidential races. And there is a sense that you know, George W Bush was just the more likeable candidate everyone a beer with him. Right. Right. You know, there's there's the bureau question. So this it's not to say that this is a purely woman issue. But I think what happens is it just is more impactful. Research shows that it's more impactful when a woman is viewed as unlikable I think that as Democrats start gaming out there field for for twenty twenty. You're already starting to see these questions of lake. Should we have a woman running against Donald Trump because like it or not the last time this happened? Democrats lost. They were devastated they were shocked by it. And you know, maybe this isn't the moment to try that again. Yeah. That is a question that is swirling around democratic politics right now, you know, my response to this has been that look I mean for this country is history since its founding white men have lost presidential elections every single time. I mean, if you look back in history there is a there are a lot of white men who've lost. And so, you know, there hasn't been this soul-searching about kosh like we put up a white man hill lost. We just we need to do something different. I don't know that I agree with that with a with a question there. But it is something that are talking about. And it is a very legitimate issue.

"Less than a week since Senator Elizabeth Warren said she was running for president in twenty twenty people have already started bringing up a familiar criticism. There was this question that immediately came up about whether or not she is likable enough to be president of the United States or to be the nominee that likability question. It's something that every twenty twenty candidate is going to have to face sooner or later, but as politics reporter, any linski points out, the measure of lake ability will probably have the biggest impact on women, and maybe even more. So for a particular woman, Elizabeth Warren because well tied to that is whether or not she is too much like Hillary Clinton just sort of like the kiss of death can't see much like Hillary Clinton that she's like an older white woman rate and have the same haircut. So clearly, they're the same person the absolute Saint, they're not that was not the same person. So and it was a deep irony for those who've covered Warren and Clinton for a long time. Like, I have because for many years, they were considered the opposite. And Warren was always considered the more palatable option to Hillary that I don't really want to. I'm not sexist. I just don't like Hillary. You know? Golly here, I'm proving I'm not sexist because I like Elizabeth Warren, but, you know, something shifts in in some people's minds when a woman raises their hand and says, you know, what I want to be in charge, and suddenly they're viewed a little differently. It's an executive and a woman is less pal. You know, if we're using the word palatable is less palatable than to be a lawmaker in woman. Yeah. But at this point people will say about Elizabeth Warren. We just really like what she's doing in the Senate. So we think she should stay there. She's just doing such a good job as a Senator. And so just why does she have to do anything else? And you just don't hear that about men. Really? I mean, like every single member of the United States Senate wakes up every single morning and looks in the mirror and sees a president. I mean, that's just true. So the idea that Elizabeth should just have to stay in this institution because she happens to be good at it is a little odd..

Golly here, I'm proving I'm not sexist because I like Elizabeth Warren, but, you know, something shifts in in some people's minds when a woman raises their hand and says, you know, what I want to be in charge, and suddenly they're viewed a little differently. It's an executive and a woman is less pal. You know, if we're using the word palatable is less palatable than to be a lawmaker in woman. Yeah. But at this point people will say about Elizabeth Warren. We just really like what she's doing in the Senate. So we think she should stay there. She's just doing such a good job as a Senator. And so just why does she have to do anything else? And you just don't hear that about men. Really? I mean, like every single member of the United States Senate wakes up every single morning and looks in the mirror and sees a president. I mean, that's just true. So the idea that Elizabeth should just have to stay in this institution because she happens to be good at it is a little odd..

"And they came in. And as the press report put it caught him red-handed receiving classified information in a lot of people back here in the states say that they think it's pretty unlikely that he was actually engaging in real espionage. Or was actually a spy. What are the reasons why? Why he seems like an unlikely secrets by? So the first big reason just a general reason even separate from Paul Wayland is that the CIA which is the agency that manages spies in Russia, and in Moscow would not be sending somebody there under what's called. Unofficial covers. So our Americans who are doing intelligence work in Moscow. They're they're officially as diplomats attached to the embassy there. They wouldn't take somebody who works in private security for an auto parts company and use him as a secret spy in Russia. It's too dangerous. And if he were caught under what's called nonofficial cover, essentially, the American government would sort of disavowal him, and it would be on. It's sort of like mission impossible thing, if you're if you're caught will deny all knowledge, we don't do that. With our spies in another Americans were working in Russia. Now, we recruit Russians in Russia to spy on their government. That's different but specific to pull Whalen, why intelligence officials I talked to said it's not likely going to be him. This is not somebody who has a background that suited. For this kind of work private intelligence, nothing really high level. Yes, he was in the marines. He was also dishonorably discharged. And we're learning more about the circumstances of that that alone would have disqualified him for being somebody that the intelligence services in this country would have recruited as an employee because they'd go through a really thorough background check in scrubbing. And essentially if you've dishonorably discharged on this case, it looks like he was accused and convicted of committing crimes they're not going to hire somebody at the CIA with a criminal history. So if he's clearly not a high level member of the CIA, then why would Russia go after him? Well, that's a great question. So the the thing that is jumping to people's minds right now, particularly former intelligence officials who've worked in Moscow is the name of woman Maria Boutin, oh Rabo Tina is this woman who has pleaded guilty to acting as an unregistered agent of Russia in the United States, and she was trying to penetrate American political conservative groups, particularly the National Rifle Association. So people are wondering whether or not the Russians took Paul Whalen in order to possibly retaliate for the Americans going after Maria patina or possibly to conduct. Swap. So we've seen these instances before these spice swaps were the Russians have some of our agents. We have some of theirs, and we agreed to swap them on a little skeptical of that only because Paul Wayland is not an American agent. So we're not going to trade for someone who's not really a spy working for the US government, the Russians surely know that nevertheless, it could be taking Paul Whalen is a retaliatory measure. So even if there's not a swamp plan, it could be a way of Moscow saying to us fine. You take one of ours will take one of yours, even if it's just an American not a CIA officer. What have US officials said about this? Are they giving any indication that they actually care about this guy? Yeah. So I think use officials have said very little, and I think the reason for that is they're still trying to figure out who exactly Paul Whalen as in what he was doing in Moscow. We know that when he was arrested as family says he was there attending a wedding of a friend. But they're also trying to figure out why he was in Russia all these other times, what is connections to the country. Our secretary of state, Mike Pompeo has been taking the lead on this..

Hi, kevin. This is real tell you the Washington Post. How are you? Eight. This is post reports. I'm routine powers. It's Friday January fourth. Today. What the case of accused spy, Paul Whalen, says about new us Russia relations, the trap of likeability for women in politics and weasels from the government shutdown. On the surface. It's very strange, and it has these cinematics rebel movements of this guy who was once in the military, and now he's in private security, and he's in Russia, and he's arrested and the Russians are saying he was receiving classified information when you start to peel it back, though, it's weird or even than most intelligent stories, which starts to tell you that there's at least in my experience. There's a lot more here that we don't know. And it's probably only going to get more. Bizarre chain Harris is a reporter for the post I cover intelligence and national security, and he's been reporting on one of the more bizarre international relations stories of late about an American who was arrested in Russia about a week ago. Russia says that Paul Whalen was quote caught in the act of espionage. And there are suggestions that he was a spy after all he made a number of trips to Russia, and he'd carried passports from four different countries adds another element of this myth. History of who is this person. You know, the the multiple citizenships it's the background in law enforcement, but it's kind of exaggerated. It's why was he court martialed and kicked out of the military and adding all of that up only adds to thicker plot. But and sources tell him that wailings an unlikely candidate for a CIA operative. So Paul Whalen is a forty eight year old man from Michigan. He currently is the director of global security for a company in Michigan that distributes auto parts, but he's worked for many years in corporate security, so essentially doing investigations and physical security for corporations prior to that he had a career in law enforcement, and he was also a marine reservist of time in deployed a couple of times to Iraq. So his background essentially is security law enforcement, but it pretty low levels. He never saw combat. He was never an employee for an intelligence agency of government and the corporate security jobs that he had don't appear to. Have involved him. You know, dashing around foreign capitals and meeting with strange contacts, it's sort of like being a security guard. Plus if you like and yet Russia thinks that he is a spy, right? Well, Russia's charging him with espionage, which we should say is a fairly elastic definition and their laws, and we're not entirely clear. Exactly what they think that he did. But yes, they are saying he was engaged in espionage. And he had spent quite a bit of time in Russia. He'd made many trips there. He spoke Russian passably Russian that he taught himself the language while he was in the marines, and he had a profile on this site called V contact which is the the Russian Facebook. So he had made friends there he'd met people in real life from the site. So he had a presence in Russia. He was more than a tourist, but he wasn't living there, and as far as we know he was certainly not dispatched there by US government agency. But is the Russian government say about like what he actually did that would make him a perpetrator of espionage. So what we know? So far has come out in a Russian not exactly unbiased press agency that is actually run by someone who's a former KGB officer who's close to Putin. So take that with a big Russian sized piece of salt. Would they are alleging based on their own anonymous sourcing is that he was in Russia and he received from contact there. A flash drive that they say contains the names of Russians who work in a secret Russian intelligence agency and some moments after he got the flash drive agents busted into his hotel room at the Metropole, very famous hotel in Moscow and arrested him. So in a sense. It sounds like he was potentially set up at somebody who the Russians may have had their eyes on thinking he was engaged in espionage..

"What has the response of the US government been to the arrest of of Paul Whalen has has President Trump spoken about President Trump is yet to speak on it. The American government was was quite slow to respond. The State Department admitted the an American had been arrested, but they they wouldn't say confirm his name. Even though the family had come out and said this is because of privacy concerns. They said, however that did change on Wednesday afternoon. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo in a visit in Brazil spoke about Waylon case, we've made clear to the Russians our expectation that we will learn more about the charges come to understand what it is. He's been accused of if the detention is not appropriate. We will demand is immediate return. So pretty strong language coming from Mike Pompeo on Wednesday. And shortly afterwards, the US ambassador to Russia met with Wayland right in a Russian prison ambassador. Huntsman also talked to some members of Huilan's family. That's the first time. Time. I heard anything about him since Friday that does the Russian government defines buying. I mean could this guy taking a photo of something? He wasn't supposed to have been thrown away for for spine. So that is part of the problem here, the espionage law, the espionage law under the criminal code of the Russian federation is extremely broad. It's not like the one you have in the United Kingdom or in the United States in twenty twelve President Putin, actually, amended the law, and he widened it to include pretty much anything rights activists say it is broad intentionally. So that all sorts of people could be arrested detained under the obviously, these two countries have a long complicated history of spying on each other. Oh, yes, how how the rules sort of of spying changed in the Putin era in Russia. Well in two thousand ten we sold the biggest spy swat. Up between the US and Russia since the Cold War. A huge spy case. Broken wide open in this country, the US arrested ten Russians accusing them of being secret agents sent to the west with fake names birth certificates and college diplomas, and I mean that was just absolutely shocking to everyone was here. I was here at the time. It was kind of it was like watching the TV show the Americans play out in real life spy swap was completed on an airport tarmac in Vienna. Austria chartered visionary lines jet carrying the ten secret agents expelled from the US pulled directly behind a Russian plane carrying four prisoners from Russia. There were ten the legals as cold part of the legal program who traded here four interestingly for Russian prisoners and who had been detained and cold for spying for the west. One of them was could he Paul who is the former Russian spy who? Now lives in England who was poisoned in twenty teen. There is a very long history of espionage happening between the United States and Russia. And of course, we can't forget muddy boots the young flame haired Russian who pled guilty just before the new year in early December two trying to influence the two thousand sixteen election campaign. Flame haired. They're definitely going to chop your phone. Call. I know sorry, I shouldn't have cooled to that..
