Remembering Fallen Plants with Ken Druse A Way to Garden With Margaret Roach June 1, 2020

"In your introduction you were talking about just turquoise labels yeah there's so many labels and I mean I can't even I can't even talk about it. I mean think and plant delights for example. Yes I think that. Half of the herbaceous plants I've planted or more have died. I have one oriental. Poppy and I've probably tried to grow. I duNno seven. Ten Oriental poppies out. And you know in those days. We were so intrigued with the latest thing the newest thing the untried and true thing so a lot of the things that we lost were not really weren't going to be good garden plants but some of them were right along and some of them just weren't tested yet in our areas and so on and so forth but we gave it ago we stretched. We pushed the limits and gave it a go. Think of we had that money back but we had the experience. We got the memories Hon. I remember going to the garden of John Kerry who who died recently crate gardener in Texas and His Garden Spin Open to the public for many many years. And it was called Pecker Wood. And now it's called the John Ferry Garden in honor of him and in one bed they had plants in this one area of this one bad things quite prominent but there were this. There was this aggregation of labels all stuck in the ground. Like soldiers tight together. You know like a pin cushion but giant right and it was hilarious and it was all the plants that were gone It was the memory of those plants. It was a graveyard mouse graveyard. Yeah the white labels all lined up look like tombstones. So let's talk about some of them. Actually you know what should I do poetic reading since we've already had some music so? I do a poetic. Reading is if if this is my favorite poem. I think ever it is. And it's by the Great. Jeffrey be Charlesworth. Also Sadly departed a great gardener garden. Quite near mind that I visited. I was lucky enough to visit. He was a leader in the North American Rock Gardens Society. Did you ever meet him? Yes I did wonderful. Yeah so he wrote this. This poem called. Why did my plant die? You're already laughing trod on it. Yeah so here's how it goes. You walked to close. You tried on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. You hold it down you weeded it. You planted it the wrong way up. You grew it in a Yogurt Cup but you forgot to make a whole. The soggy compost took its toll. September storm November drought. It heaved in March. The roots popped out you watered. With urbicide you scattered bonemeal and wide attracting local omnivores who eight-year plant and stayed for more. She left it. Baking in the Sun while you departed at a run to find a spade perhaps a trowel. Meanwhile the plant threw in the towel. You planted it with crown. Too High. The soil washed off. That explains why to High Ph at hated line. Elastic needs a gentler climb. He left the root ball wrapped in plastic. You broke the routes. They're not elastic. You Walk to close you try to get you dropped a piece of sod on it. You splash the plant with more oil. You should do something to your soil too rich to poor such wretched health. Your Silas Clay. Soil is filth. Your plant was eaten by a slug. The growing point contained a bug. These aphids are controlled by aunts. Who Milk the juice. It kills the plants in early spring your gardens mud. You walked around. That's not much good with heat and light. You hurried it. You worry that you buried it. The poor plant missed the mountain air. No heat no summer mugs up there you over fed it ten ten ten forgot to water it again. You hit it sharply with the hose. You used a hand without arose. Perhaps you sprinkled from above. You should have talked to it with love. The nursery mailed it without roots. You killed it with those gardening boots you walked to close you trod on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. I'm crying. I just love him. I just loved him and his books. Were the opinionated Gardner. Was that what his greatest book was. That was the name of it. You mentioned Rock Garden. Rock gardeners are really they? They like to be punished. They tried artists plants of all they have a high hardest group plants from seed. And yes. Oh My Gosh. I can't even keep Diana's alive more than one year right. Yeah yeah so so okay so. Let's yeah plant slightly over there Hon. No I was thinking about over the years. It's hard to remember because they're not here right. And so you know you're looking. You think what I but I was thinking and I remember. I had a collection of Oak Leaf. Hydrangea and my favorite. Was snowflake semi double double really and it was about six feet tall. And I discovered after hurricane Irene. That hydrangea corker Is Flood intolerant? I lost them all. Oh and just recently. I got a text from my friend. Heidi and it had a photograph of something blooming in it and it was my favorite Siberian Iris. Which is a kind of short one. Among summer sky from nine hundred thirty five and I had that plan for about forty years but when I planted here it got a little shady better also got four and I lost it and the thing about that is if you don't plants and it was hard for me. I got that from someone in from an old garden because it's not easy to well now it's a little easier to find that it wasn't then it all it sky blue and white just beautiful and now. I can get it back because I shared that plant. I was thinking about arose that grew for many years. It's a rambler kind of purple colored. Rambler you'll Shin Blau. I believe you say V. E. L. C. H. E. N. B. L. A. You may be awesome. Yeah and and he just it was just that and I can just see the place I mean I could see out the window the place where it stood all those years where grew all those years and I think I don't even know what I don't even know if I remember what befell it you know but I keep wondering like with your IRA why don't I have it again. Why didn't I replace it right away? says it was just so beautiful. It was a a feature in the flower garden at Wave Hill. That was the first place I had seen it in New York City and so I had gotten it because I was so enchanted by it there. So that's a plant. I don't know if I killed it. I don't I'M NOT GONNA

Birds on Rhinos' Backs Help Them Avoid Poachers

"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Suzanne barred black. Rhinos have terrible eyesight even so these giant African urban floors easily fend off. Hungry Lions and Hyenas. The body plan has proved to be good enough to survive on Savannah full of large predators. Being very thick skin big ripe. Eli Cohen's Victoria. University of Melbourne behavioral Ecologist Rhone Plots but those protective traits are no match for humans with guns today the species as critically endangered largely due to poaching but the rhinos may have an unlikely ally against poachers the red billed ox pecker the chatty sociable birds often hang out on the backs of rhinos feasting on parasitic ticks. And actually we such a sign that take his favorite diets of a nonsmoker. And if they feed on ticks that is a good thing the birds also get nutrients by picking it soars on the rhinos bodies out suspected that the rhinos put up with this indignity because the packers make loud alarm calls whenever they see. Humans approach giving the rhinos in early warning to flee and then sort of a distinctive rustling hissing sort of sound to test whether the ox Pecker is due in fact act as noisy lookouts plots and his team implanted radio transmitters in the rhino horns. This didn't hurt the rhinos and allowed the researchers to track the animals and approach undetected win. The Oscars are on the back when the pictures are not on their backs to get deer. Birds do alert them and if the runners do listen. The researchers found that rhinos without ox packers detected in approaching human only twenty three percent of the time at an average distance of twenty seven meters. But when ochs packers were present the birds alerted the rhinos one hundred percent of the time and they detected the human sixty one meters away on average and the more ox packers on the scene. The greater the detection distance which means the earlier the warning respect sense because the moral is you have a new back looking out for you. The more chance that they can pick up anything coming. What we think is going on. Fundamentally is wanted to resist dropping on the obstacle can be no doubt that there's really strong and human benefit to listening talks pickles. The study is in the Journal. Current biology with ox pecker recording by Tiffany plantain of the University of Miami. Plots thinks the packers may have evolved their sentinel behaviour because it protects their convenient food source. And the more. Lookouts the better in. What seems like a win win for both species. The birds thrive and the rhinos survive. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Suzanne Bard.

FBI documents point to Trump role in hush money for porn star Daniels

"Newly unsealed court documents released today tie then candidate Donald Trump to the 2016 hush money scheme to keep adult film star Stormy Daniels quiet about her alleged affair was citizen. Donald Donald trump the documents reveal and F._B._i.. Agent investigating the matter wrote that in the days following the release of that access Hollywood video Michael Cohen exchanged a series of calls text messages emails with Stormy Daniels Attorney and and David Pecker and Dylan Howard A._M.. I hope Hicks and candidate Donald Trump. The agent went on to write quote based on the timing of these calls on the content of the text messages and emails. I believe that at least some I'm of these communications concerned the need to prevent Clifford from going public particularly in the wake of the Access Hollywood story. We should note the F._B._I.. Says phone records were completely derived from Cohen's. I'm sorry this this information was completely derived from Cohen's phone records and not because they had any recording or any copies of Donald Trump's calls the New York Times points out today these documents signal that it is unlikely. Prosecutors in this case will file anymore charges as part of this hush money investigation prosecutors said they had effectively concluded their inquiry for more on what this all means we are so happy to be joined once again tonight by Neil Okapi all a veteran of the Justice Department former acting solicitor general during the Obama Administration a man who has argued thirty nine cases before the U._S. Supreme Court counselor what stood out to you today and for a lay audience dance myself included what happened in this case today so today the documents that were around the search warrant were released. The Michael Cohen Search Warrant and I think what stands out number one is what Donald Trump's involvement in this whole thing was. I think you know we've gotten kind of a nerd to his racism has corruption sleaze but you read these documents and boy. The president was thick in the payments to stormy Daniels this one hundred thirty thousand dollar payments that he orchestrated traded his lawyer Michael Cohen to make Michael Collins actually going to jail for those payments and so think one thing that's happened. Today is really tying directly of trump to this whole thing which we kind of new because he was already named individual number one but again. It's pretty start to see this about sitting president of the United States so that's the first thing then the second thing I'd say is you know it also shows that involvement of other people in the trump orbit so hope Hicks who went to Congress last month and testified testified in said why didn't really know anything about this and I didn't really have any involvement and I wasn't present when Michael Cohen was talking to Donald Trump well the reports show that actually she was involved in all this new quite a bit and so both of for those things I think are significant. They suggest that really Michael Cohen wasn't acting alone which is frankly pretty obvious. I mean if your lawyer Brian paid one hundred thirty thousand dollars to someone even ten dollars to someone. I think you'd be like hey what's this about trump's. This defense. I think has been Oh. I didn't know anything about these payments from his own lawyer and I don't think Michael Cohen was doing the generosity of his own heart so a dual question for you after all you just laid out why are the only the why is the only person charged Cohen Cohen and secondly what real legal jeopardy could hose hope Hicks find yourself in as a result of getting cross ways well so there's a crime of outline to Congress that's perjury and so on and actually Congressman Nadler tonight the the Democratic Cleaning House Judiciary Committee has asked picks to come in and clarify her testimony given what she said before so there is the possibility of crime for that and then second question is who else could be indicted and I think we've all known since since last year when these documents were released by federal prosecutors that individual number one is donald trump and the federal prosecutors are basically saying look.

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from the almond board of California working with almond farmers to improve water management practices. Learn more about the almond communities efforts to reduce the amount of water. It takes to grow each pound of almonds at almondsustainability dot org. The National Enquirer, you know. It's usually on sale at grocery store checkout stands with its sensational headlines. You might have read some as you've been waiting in line. Will it is now up for sale its parent company. American media Inc. Says it intends to sell several of its tabloids including the Enquirer and this comes after some controversial years for one thing. AM I reportedly tried to help President Trump's campaign by buying and suppressing a story from a former playboy model who claims she had an affair with Trump in February Jeff Bezos, the owner of the Washington Post and CEO of Amazon accused the Enquirer of extortion and blackmail, and now comes this potential sale. Let's talk to NPR's David Folkenflik about it. Hey, david. Hey, david. So there was Karen McDougal former playboy model. There was Jeff Bezos in his accusation. Some I mean, I just remind us about all these controversies the magazine is faced we'll think back to what we now know about the two thousand sixteen race. Karen McDougal had claimed to have a significant relationship. Extra marital affair with the president and were subsequently introduced the phrase catch and kill the the inquirer facilitated one hundred and fifty thousand dollar payout. Two McDougal extensively to paired right column for a sister publication men's journal actually to ensure that store never saw the light of day during the election season separately, Jeff Bezos in January took to medium posted a platform. And basically said, hey, by the way, not only have I been having an extramarital affair with my girlfriend, but the inquirer is all over it. And Furthermore, I became aware that they're all over it. And they have been trying to blackmail me and extort me into issuing a statement saying that no way was this politically motivated because of their ties to President Trump, and they were threatening to publish very intimate. Photographs of me. I'm not. Gonna stand for it. Here's what I have to say. I mean, and it's worth just pausing and reflecting it at at Trump's ties to all of this. I mean, he's close to to the guy runs the magazine right Detroit. This is not in any way, an accident. David pecker, the determine the controlling executive at American media Inc. The parent company has long had ties with Donald Trump. They consider each other friends and Trump grew up in the sort of more. Hey and morass of tabloid news here in New York City doing business with Murdoch's New York Post doing business with the National Enquirer ensuring favorable coverage and trying to tamp down on negative coverage of him. Will you saw that play out on its pages with cover story after cover story reason questions about Hillary Clinton's morality Bill Clinton about her health, and you saw that about positive and sort of glowing coverage of Trump and also the lack of coverage of the kind of scandals that the inquire usually traffics in so the company is saying this is a business decision. But I mean, there's a report in the New Yorker that as recently as twenty seventeen company was thinking about how to actually. Expand its its portfolio of magazines. So I mean is is this the controversies that that really changed fortunes for them. Or is this story more complicated. Well, you could say both, you know, in twenty ten parent company declared, bankruptcy, there's significant debt surrounding and hanging over national enquirers parent company, but you can't separate this from the scandals the Washington Post in its reporting claims that the hedge fund manager who sort of controlling owner. Now of American media says that he's disgusted by what he's learned. The this is not really anything new for the inquirer. But don't forget the legal trouble. The inquirer has been in. You know, it got dragged into the investigation. Michael Cohen and others. It had to essentially negotiate with prosecutors in order to avoid prosecution, and indeed the bazo scandal may raise the legal stakes once more. I mean, we we've probably all joked at the grocery store checkout stand like looking at the health who would ever by the National Enquirer. When now it's like a more serious question. Who would by the national inquirer will you know in a in a straight world, you might say TMZ that digital gossip site. It's hard to. No, it's damage brand. It is a notable brands somebody made by as a play thing. Or there's been speculation. Jeff Bezos would wanna strangle it by it and put it out while different kinds of catch. Another chapter of the story. Yeah. In paris. David folkenflik. Thanks, david. You bet.

Michael Cohen House testimony: what to expect

Michael Cohen House testimony: what to expect

"Today is the first of three days of hearings that involved Michael Cohen, aka the rat. At least according to his former boss, President Trump today. We've had L E Hoenig of CNN legal analyst to give us kind of a preview of what we're going to see and the importance of it. And if I can't Elliot can before even getting into the specifics to what degree are these genuine hearings? I mean, everything in Washington is so thoroughly partisan, you know, which way each side's gonna vote anyway, don't you? Well, they're genuine hearings, but they will assuredly be very partisan isle. There's not going to be a vote at the end of this. This is a factor gathering hearing. I come from the criminal courts where you operate with a strict set of rules of procedure and rules of evidence. And you have a judge jury. We're going to have none of that all of which I think will contribute to the circus like atmosphere that we're going to see you're going to see presidents longtime personal attorney basically open game for a group of partisan politics. Both ways and all have their agendas, and they will all be looking to score points. Well, let's look at how they do it. If I'm a Republican I turn around. And I say, why do you want to believe this guy? This guy's already been convicted. He's a convicted felon. Yeah. The Republican attack is going to be very predictable. It's going to be the same way that defense lawyers attacked cooperating witnesses at criminal trials. It's going to be he's he's a liar. He's an admitted criminal throw them out the window. The president's already done the Sarah Sanders issued a statement this morning that was the most predictable statement ever where she said exactly that about Michael Cohen. I think it would be a little bit more credible for people on both sides of say we'll see what he has to say. And we'll assess it, but when you're announcing before he spoken one word that nothing. He says is believable. I think you undermine your own credibility Democrats on the advising the Democrats. I would say don't embrace this guy. Don't try to make him out to be the messiah earn angel. He's none of those things he's badly flawed individual. He's an admitted criminal. These are the kind of witnesses. We used to build cases row when I was a prosecutor. But that's how the system works. And the thing that I would tell the Democrats to focus on his focus on the facts. I don't think we need to get into all the personal stuff every little peccadillo that Trump had facts and things that can be verified or proven with documents or other evidence. Understood. But as far as the evidence is concerned there. No rules on evidence. Right. You can put anything in. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it sounds like Michael Collins actually going to appear with documents. I don't know if he's been a briefcase and sort of pop them out. But correct. I mean regular court they would have to go through a process that the prosecutor would have to offer them into evidence. The judge would review it the defense would object. Another judge would say it's in out. There will be no such thing when Michael tomorrow. So it's going to be wild west. All right, there are three different meetings that are going to take place today. We've got the Senate intelligence committee tomorrow, the house oversight committee and then on Thursday, Adam shifts committee, the house intelligence committee of the three the one that would probably get the most attention and tell me if I'm wrong Elliott would probably be the one tomorrow. Because after all it's going to be the only public one hundred miles. We may get leaks and secondhand account of what's happening behind closed doors, knowing congress, I would expect that but gosh, I mean, Michael Collins going to be sitting now there's going to be. Cameras in his face. He's going to be answering questions directly from the committee members. It's going to be a show, and yeah, that's where all the attention is going to be it's going to be a show. And what meanwhile at the same time, you've got the president of the United States sitting down with Kim Jong UN in Vietnam. And they'll probably be a split screen, which one goes, I, you know, the president's going to not be able to help themselves from watching Cohen interesting. I think it's twelve hours different. So it'd be at Phnom. So I think the Coen if he devise all day that's going to be through the night in Vietnam. But I saw a report earlier today that somebody says the president's planning to stay up all night and watch Cowan, and we know he likes his cable news. So I believe that well as long as FOX's there. That's not a problem CNN. He criticized. I know CNN is yours. How how could he not love CNN because he had Jim Acosta? That's his favorite reporter, isn't it? Sure. But sometimes it's obvious. He's watching you'll see an anchor say something, and then they'll jump on and say fake news. Hey, you know, it's one more viewers with me we're talking with Elian Hoenig CNN legal analyst. Let's talk a little bit about what they're trying to figure out for one thing. It's fairly obvious people are gonna zero in on these two payments made to the two women to kind of make sure that they weren't part of the actual campaign. They get to the bottom of that. I think so I think Michael Cohen is going to have chapter and verse on that every cooperator and considering cooperator analogous to want somebody who used to be involved in criminal activity with the person there now testifying against there are things that cooperator was directly involved in. And there are things that are cooperator may have only known a little bit or piece about this is the former this is going to be he was right in the middle of making these hush money payments. He should be able to detail not just President Trump's involvement, but the involvement of other organs. -secutive Z evolvement of David pecker in the payment made to Karen McDougal. He should have chapter endorse on it. I'm expecting probably has documents that communications on that as well. Well, is there any question? I mean, let's be realistic. You really going to turn around and pay money to these two women? If it wasn't at the direction of the president. Why are you doing it? What do you have a charity there? Well, I guess the argument would be these were people who were looking out for my interests. And I was running a large campaign at the time. And I don't know everything everyone is doing I just know people are out there trying to protect me. But the trick there is the legal defense that we've heard this from the president and his legal team is dispute that these payments happened they say, but it wasn't connected to the election. It was connected to protecting the president from these what they call false allegations. But personal embarrassment family embarrassment, and that's an important legal point because when John Edwards. We're remember. John Edwards ran for vice president he was a Senator from North Carolina. He was charged with the very similar crime. He had paid hush money to his mistress. Who had he had a child with? He was tried for that. And he was acquitted on most charges and the jury hung out others because the key point is it's only a campaign finance. Violation. If the payment was designed in large part to protect the person election. And so Edward defense was no it was primarily intended to protect me and my family fucking delegation. It wasn't really election connected. Well, first of all John Edwards allegedly gives pecker the opportunity to say see we were real paper. We broke that story and number two John Edwards is different. Because in this case, what else would it have been used for other than a campaign thing? I mean, otherwise, why would Trumpcare about these women and the timing is so telling here because the alleged affairs happened many many years before and the payments are made just a couple of weeks before the election. So I think that's hard to explain I think Edwards. The timing was not nearly so clear, I think in fact, I think the payments continued after he was out of the campaign. So there was a better argument there that they were not related to the campaign and one of the other really good questions. You ask is the Trump or anybody else ever talked to you or your lawyers about the possibility of a pardon Michael comb. What do I say that I think that's important point? There's been indicators out there that the president has dangled a partners people like to put it to Roger stone to Paul Manafort, and you can see it in his tweets. Right. He tweets out at Manafort and stone a brave and they've gotten backbone because there's staying silent. Meanwhile, when Michael Cohen cooperates tweets calling him a latte, which I I take that a lot of offensive that having prosecuted real cases, I did mafia cases here in New York. And that's a term that gets people killed. I mean, that's what mob bosses say I've done cases where people murdered other people because they thought they were rats. So for the president of the United States to say that is way out of line. I guess it all boil down to the very end when he takes off his shirt and if he's got an actual full tattoo of Donald Trump. That may have to come off. There's a name for that. You know, what that would be called, namely,

"Well, you know, I it's it's interesting, and it's probably somewhat more complicated than the simple the Enquirer doing Trump's bidding. Yes, it's true in two thousand seventeen that that David pecker was very happy to say to me. Look, we love Donald Trump. And you know, we were helping them out with this Karen McDougal situation. This has been a nightmare for pay for Packer and for American media has company and for Dylan Howard, the yes, it's true that in two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen it was it was all jolly to talk about how how much they like Donald Trump. This has been a problem. And frankly, my sense is and also if you just look at the inquirer as I continue to do they have carried a lot less water for Trump in recent months. They they, you know, Trump is not selling the way he wants did as far as I can tell and, you know, and I think the relationship between them pecker and Trump is somewhat. I is is less cl-. Close probably a lot less close than it. Once was so I think you need to keep that in the background, you know, AVI. And look and Basil's is a good stories the richest man in the world. It is a classic Enquirer story to reveal that. You know, he he was having this affair is it a benefit that it helped Trump and and embarrassed one of his enemies, probably. Yes. But was that the primary motivator? I don't know. Now, I'm sure you're going to get to this. There is also the related Saudi Arabia angle, which may actually be bigger than the Trump angle. Lynch's pas on the Saudis. I because I do want to get to that. You say that this has been a nightmare for Dave pecker? We were just talking about the non-prosecution agreement that AM I and Dave Packer have with the federal prosecutors in the southern district. Do you think that this allegation on the part of Jeff Bezos that this was an extortion scheme on the part of am I and pecker violates the non-prosecution agreement? I mean how much jeopardy or are? They in right now. I'm going to give you a ringing. I don't know to that. Because I don't know. But it is certainly worthy of investigation. You know? You work in TV I work in TV everybody asks you, you know, is someone guilty or not guilty based on like one piece of information. That's not how it works. What is appropriate here is that the southern district dude investigation of whether this was blackmail, look at all the communications between AM I and and Basil's look interview these people talk to people learn all the facts because on its face. It does look like it might be extortion or blackmail, extortion is obtaining a thing of value by threats or force. You know, give me a million dollars or I'll kill you. The question is did Trump did AM? I obtain a thing of value. Certainly there were threats in the photos are we'll release the photos is clearly a threat. But did they get a thing of value? Well, they got or they saw. The news coverage or the absence of news coverage..

"And then two decades later the National Enquirer was first on the story that John Edwards had fathered a child out of wedlock during his presidential race. I wonder Jeff in your research for the story. Did you find any instances of the inquirer taking a Gimblett? I two Republican candidates and Republican politics, or is it always been sort of a right wing leaning populist MAG. I would not describe it as intensely political in particularly, you know, up in. I mean, even even the. Heart and the Edwards scoops. I don't think we're particularly motivated by you know, screwing Democrats, I think they were motivated because they were great scoops. And and and I don't it was really only when David pecker took over and really even during the Trump campaign in very recently that the the inquirer became explicitly political. And you know, for example, two thousand sixteen was the first time the Enquirer ever endorsed a candidate for president that candidate. Of course, was Donald Trump was Trump. Right. But before Trump who has as I'm sure we'll discuss is a long term friend of Packers. There was not a heavy duty political orientation to the inquirer. It was much more gossip driven and driven above all by. By. Newsstand sales. You know, whose face on the on the cover would sell would sell magazines that is really what what drove it and even to a certain extent in the pecker Trump era that that's what drove it at least during the campaign, but that was more. There was not not a heavy duty political orientation through most of the most of the history of the inquire. So the orientation is more scandal than partisan. He right in one of the fascinating things. I learned in in reporting this story and pecker and his colleagues gave me tremendous access is is they have a very scientific way of proving. You know, what sells, and what doesn't even what word cell, and what words don't, you know? Jennifer. I'm kind of blanking. No from friends. Oh, Jennifer Aniston Chashma for Amazon, Jennifer Aniston cells. Jennifer Lopez does not sell. You know words, you often see on the cover of the inquirer tragic last days that cells that is what mostly drives the Enquirer more than politics in at least during the period of two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen Trump sold. And yes, there was a friendship with pecker. But the fact that Trump sold was also a major factor, and that's not entirely surprising. When you think about the Enquirer's audience, which is largely lower middle class. It sells most of all in WalMart, and you know, the great swath swats of central Pennsylvania, central Ohio, central Wisconsin that that one Trump the election that was prime in car, inquirer territory. Well, yeah. And it so we'll get to that in a second this sort of chicken or the eggs scenario. Right, right. Does Trump just happened to move a lot of national and enquirers or was there a sort of benefit? To giving your friend favorable press. Let's talk a little bit about Dave pecker who becomes the head who the steward of the National Enquirer. He is a fascinating character. He's not a journalist. But he is in a way a kind of throwback to a certain kind of New York City media mogul, isn't he Jeff he he has this kind of old school characteristics. He is I mean, you know, the most of the the news media. I mean, you work youth worked or the MSNBC I work at CNN, you know, their corporations their own by Dinna shareholders and CEO's who are very bottom line driven business school graduates of pecker is a throwback to win newspapers and magazines were owned by individual people and reflected the personalities of the, you know, like the the Henry looses, the the and pecker, you know, has brought this. You know, slightly downmarket swashbuckling mentality to a series of magazines over the years. I you know, I and before Trump was never known as a particularly political person. But. The everything changed with Trump. And he is seems to be very much in the thrall of Donald Trump Trump's sort of brand of New York success, the gilded ceilings in the supermodels on each arm is very it seems like it intoxicated..

Jeff Bezos, Blackmail and the National Enquirer, explained

"Gigantic fight is heating up between owners of the Washington Post and the National Enquirer. It involves Amazon's leader, Jeff Bezos, extramarital affairs, embarrassing photos and possible extortion. ABC's George Stephanopoulos talk with a lawyer for the head of AM. I that owns the National Enquirer began last month when the National Enquirer published text messages between Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos and his mistress. Lauren Sanchez a revelation that bazo who also owns the Washington Post tried to preempt announcing the end of his marriage then late this week Basil's went public again writing on medium that agents for the national inquirer and its parent company. AM I threaten to release a digital text and explicit photos and less pays us said publicly that the Enquirer story about him was quote, not politically motivated instead of bowing to the demand bazo slash back. Of course, I don't want personal photos published, but I also won't participate in their well known practice of blackmail, political favors political attacks and corruption. Basil's is also investigating. Why was targeted the inquirer and his post? References AM. I chairman David Packers close friendship with President Trump and the Washington Post coverage of dramatic Shoghi is murder by operatives tied to the Saudi Crown prince, quote, an am I leader advise us, they Mr. pecker is apoplectic about our investigation for reasons. Still to be better. Understood the Saudi angles seems to hit a particularly sensitive nerve. Federal prosecutors now reviewing accusations which could jeopardize AM is existing immunity deal in which the company admitted to quashing damaging stories about Trump to help his presidential campaign. That is some of the background here respond. David Packers attorney album Abramowicz. Thank you for joining us morning right out there. Jeff Bezos, says extortion blackmail. Absolutely is that extortion and not blackmail of what happened was the story was given to the National Enquirer by reliable source had given information to the National Enquirer for seven years prior to this story was a source that was well known to both Mr. bazo Sam the Sanchez wasn't Michael Sanchez. I can't discuss who the source was. Just it's a confidential within AM. I so I'm not going to answer who the source was it was somebody close to both Basil's ama- Sanchez. Let me let me show some of the correspondents that Mr. bazo published. He he had it. This is a letter from AM is lawyer John find the deputy counsel, and it lays out two of the conditions. He was setting one a public knowledge from the basis parties that they have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that am ice coverage is politically motivated or influenced by political forces, and then point three AM agrees, not to publish distribute share describe unpublished texts and photos that seems like a pretty clear offer, am I won't publish these photos. If they get this statement from bazo, Georgia, you have to understand the context the story was already out and photos, not not those photos, there were I think there were some photos that were in the original story. Both pesos and AM. I had interests in resolving their differences base didn't want another story written about him. Or those pictures published? Am I did not want to have the libel against them that this was inspired by the White House inspired by Saudi Arabia or this inspired by the Washington Post? It had nothing to do with it. It was a usual story that that National Enquirer gets from reliable national believes that these photos were newsworthy yet, they're offering they're not to publish them return for the thing of value from Jeff Bezos, letting go the legal liabilities saying that it wasn't politically motivated. How is that not extortion is not extortion? Because all that AM. I wanted was the truth pesos and miss. Sanchez knew who the source was any investigator that was going to investigate this new who the source was it was not the White House. It was not Saudi Arabia, and the liable that was going out there slamming AM, I was that. This was all. Political hatchet job sponsored by either foreign nation or somebody politically in this country. That is something that the story was already published. How news decision to decide how long you can go with the same story. So that each side, it was part of a legitimate negotiation. Each side had something that they wanted a source close to the close to those conversations familiar with this conversation says this was a crime not the source is totally wrong. It's absolutely not a crime to ask somebody to simply tell the truth. Tell the truth that this was not politically

"Support for this NPR podcast and the following message. Come from Yahoo. Finance live, eight hours of free. Live streaming news without cable or a subscription. Tune in for the news. You need about your money accessible wherever you go. Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos is going punch for punch with the National Enquirer and its parent company. AM I in a post on the blog site medium last night, Basil's accused the inquires owner David pecker of trying to blackmail him. Bazo writes, quote, rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail. I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten and quote now those also implied that he was being targeted because he owns the Washington Post, which has been dogged in its reporting about President Trump. I do just want to note here that Amazon is a funder of NPR. Let's turn out to NPR's early. Berliner hiree David so reminding the Enquirer had already published some personal text messages about Basil's. But I mean, it sounds like the. Had a lot more on him. That's right. They said they had a lot more and these of photos in particular were lewd sexually suggestive pictures of selfies of Jeff Bezos and Lawrence Sanchez. The woman that he was allegedly having an extramarital affair with and bazo said that he was threatened by AM I because of this investigation that he launched into how the National Enquirer came into possession of these personal tax and photos. Okay. So he was investigating with a suspicion that there might have been some political motivations that in this first publication of those tests messages, and he saying the inquirer was saying stop this investigation, or will publish more, and he actually published some emails that he says are from the parent company of of the inquirer. What exactly they say? Yeah. This is quite extraordinary illegit. Bezos, says okay, you're going to publish these photos of me. I have these emails from A M I officials, and here's what they say. And it's clear from these emails if they are from AM, I that they want bazo. They're eager for owes to stop investigating this league. One of them proposes some terms to Basil's that to end the dispute it says, it will agree not to publish any of texts or photos in return basis would have to say that am is coverage of his affair was not politically motivated. The other Email describes the suggestive photos in some graphic detail. This is apparently intended to convince Basil's to back off them. But yeah, as you mentioned basis in his post suggests there's a political motivation here what let's talk about the politics and the possible political motivation was that's what makes this story. Even more extraordinary all the players here. Yeah. Exactly. I mean, these are plot twist reminiscent of John Grisham novel. But in some way, they're more sensational. You have Jeff Bezos the world's richest man, the founder, the CEO of Amazon, and the owner of the Washington Post, and then there's David pecker, the head of am, I and pecker isn't just a publisher. He's been a longtime ally of Donald Trump, you know, as you may remember, the National Enquirer acknowledged paid some. Some hush money to a former playboy model. Karen McDougal who said she had an affair with Trump. Now, she was paid hundred and fifty thousand dollars a right during the two thousand sixteen political campaign so much going on here. I'm including as you mentioned basis ownership of the post, which he says is a complex afire for him. That's not a word. We use it often. What did he mean? Yeah. I don't know. What exactly what that word means by he'd I I don't know if it's any word you use? But but but what he says basically is that? Yes. Owning the Washington Post can be complicated you get into conflicts. But he also says that he is very proud of owning the post and that you know, it's a critical institution with a critical mission. And he says his support of that mission is something that he'll look back on when he's ninety years old and reviewing his life and be very proud of AllState still. We don't want to connect to many dots. That shouldn't be connected, but so many interesting players here with a lot of influence. It's just an extraordinary story. NPR's berliner. Thanks so much.

"I'm Mike Gaba. Chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo news. And I'm Dan Kleinman editor in chief of Yahoo news. So the legal pressures on the president seemed to be escalating by the day. I just got back from the court hearing in which Maria Boutin ah, the Russian agent dispatched to influence American politics pled guilty, you know, one more shoe dropping here, but the big one is this plea by or non-prosecution agreement by AM, I the parent company of National Enquirer. Well, right now, as we speak the most kind of perilous legal problem for Donald Trump seems to be that he was involved in this effort to pay off to women. He was involved with with hush money. And according to his former personal lawyer. Michael Cohen he- did it to first of all Cohen made the payments that the direction and in coordination with Donald Trump, and it was done to affect that twenty sixteen election, which would be a campaign violation and a felony. We've talked a lot on this show about whether Donald Trump would be indicted that still seems unlikely, but this is evidence of a clearcut crime and the issue here in terms of the evidence was was there anyone other than Michael Cohen who could make this claim Michael Cohen who is now an admitted liar as the Trump team always says the answer now appears to be yes, David Packer. David pecker. Lol people, right. The publisher of the National Enquirer a guy who had been a close ally of Donald Trump for years is compadres. They actually discussed his plans for running for president right from the get-go in August of two thousand. Fifteen pecker meets with Trump. And they discuss what. Possible embarrassing stories could come out about Donald Trump's apparently serial infidelity and Becker tells them no problem, we'll take care of it will engage in catch and kill a practice by which tabloid publications by up stories from various figures, and then under the understanding that they're actually never going to publish them. They just buy the rights. So the accuser can't go anyplace else and air her or rice Ori? And then of course, there seems to be a elaborate efforts to cover up the payments and the always arrangements shell companies set up. There's vouchers that are made up. So it really does look like a conspiracy to affect the election and mind, you this was happening. After as I understand it after the Hollywood access videotape. It come out. So that's the stormy Daniels payment, right? That's right. Exactly. But still that's part of that is part of the same deal. And so the question that a lot of people will ask is well could this have affected the election after all people already knew when the Hollywood access tape came out Trump seems to be able to blow by that. He's still one. But if this had come out as well and remember, you know, Trump won three states by a margin of eighty thousand votes or something. So this could have been decisive it could have had a real impact. And I think that's going to be one of the things that people debate. It really goes to the question of Donald Trump's legitimacy in terms of winning this election. The one of the thing I want to just linger hunt for a second. I just keep thinking about this is kind of exquisite irony. Donald Trump, of course, is the president who calls the mainstream media practitioners of fact-based journalism fake news all the time. And now, of course, if you believe prosecutors in the southern district of New York, he's been incredibly cozy for all these years with none other than the owners of the National Enquirer and the star talk about fake news, practically in this insincere, preferably acting as an arm of the Trump campaign. I mean, so Donald Trump clearly benefiting from the ultimate fake news in. AM I and they're Tableau. It's listen, I can't think of a greater irony than the fact that David pecker the and the National Enquirer which did so much to promote Trump's candidacy could be the entities that actually bring him down. Which is why I think we'll call this episode. Donald Trump's pecker problem. What we should take note. The president is swinging back is just tweeted as we record this..

"It's an unusual payoff at the end of that story to then have a party to a story so publicly admitting. Yeah, we did lie about that. There's also. You know, a lot of questions about what other information if any David pecker, am I may have in a safe or may have on Donald Trump? You know, the reporting I've done is about these two payments that were made through AM I and an additional ones directly McDougal, and then also an additional payment to a Trump Tower doorman to suppress knowledge that he claimed he had about supported Trump love child that it resulted from an affair and to be clear we didn't uncover evidence that that claim was true. But we did uncover the the the money this actual payment during the election cycle. And a lot of people say it was designed to influence the outcome is what's interesting also about this Riemann that AM I reached with the thirties is it's not just David pecker saying this. It's they've agreed to have other employees give all the information that they know talk about all they know. Correct. There were number. Ama- employees who were directly involved in these transactions and who were in regular receipt of pretty sensitive information about Donald Trump. Dylan Howard is another senior person who is party to the agreement now with prosecutors not makes sense. He knew a lot am I correct that this agreement is pretty open ended that they have to comment on anything that thorns are interested in. So we have knowledge of three elections. These payments one directly through Cohen to stormy Daniels. One through M, I Karen McDougal and another through am I to suppress this alleged Trump love child story through a doorman at the Trump organization this agreement only pertains to the McDougal transaction that is the only one that is explicitly referenced there. It doesn't reference the other AM I related payment, which is interesting now that said it's open ended in terms of the information AM, I is providing prosecutors just gives prosecutors carte blanche to ask about everything that they do. Prosecutors can't ask them about anything. And they would have to give information if they have data peers to. Be what they're saying. When they announce this arrangement, fascinating stuff, Ronan Farrow. Thank you so much. Thanks Anderson chicken with Christy what he's working on for Cuomo primetime. Chris Ronin his spot on Veilleux going to have to continue to ask answer questions from prosecutors for this non-prosecution agreement, and that's what triggered everybody's eyebrows. Of what else do they have to offer us a little bit of trickery with the facts there. One of the things that David pecker reportedly was upset about was that he wasn't paid back by Trump when he was supposed to be the president is now using that or is lawyers. Are they're using to advantage. They're saying well never got completed a transaction. So there's nothing anything wrong with it. But the reason we fought so hard to get that tape of the president. Then candidate Trump talking to Michael Cohen was because we knew that what the president knew and when was going to be relevant on this not because of primer exposure, but because of political exposure and his ability to tell the truth on things that matter. Yeah. I mean that tape it would broke on your show. It takes. You know, all new importance tonight, given what we just learned Christian have more on. That's about six minutes for mousy then up nex for us. There's a lot more presidential interview for the ages short on fact checks or follows, but there were lots of printed out pieces of paper the ridiculous next.

"Now AM I is the parent company of the National Enquirer which paid one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to Karen McDougal to buy her story about her sexual affair with Donald Trump. And of course, Donald Trump's friend David pecker who runs the National Enquirer planned to never allow that story to be told imprint in the National Enquirer or anywhere else. He bought the story. So he could own it. And so he could then kill it as a campaign favor for Donald Trump. The prosecutor's press release says AM I admitted that it made the hundred and fifty thousand dollar payment in concert with the candidates presidential campaign and in order to ensure that a woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the two thousand sixteen presidential presidential election AM. I further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment. Was to suppress the woman's story. So as to prevent it from influencing. The election. David Packers name does not appear in this press released. But that means what that press release says means David pecker himself told the prosecutors that the money he paid to suppress Karen McDougal story was paid to prevent it from influencing the election. There are other possible witnesses at the National Enquirer who might be telling the prosecutors the same thing. And so we now have Michael Cohen and David pecker, and possibly others at the National Enquirer who have told federal prosecutors that the money was paid to influence the election, the press release explains that the prosecutors agreement with David pecker and damn I not to prosecute the company is because AM I promoted provided quote, substantial and important assistance in this investigation and its agreement to provide cooperation in the future. Cooperation in the future. The only future that this investigation has about these campaign law violations. The only future it has is a future prosecution of the person referred to as individual one in the prosecutor's case, the president of the United States. The prosecutors have repeatedly described by cocoons election crimes as having been committed in coordination with an at the direction of individual an individual one is of course, Donald Trump. So Michael Cohen was sentenced to federal prison today for doing what Donald Trump told him to do that makes Donald Trump as guilty of exactly the same crimes as Michael Cohen. And that is why David pecker and AM is quote cooperation in the future. Was announced publicly today outside of the courtroom outside of any legal filings by federal prosecutors in New York, the judge in Michael Cohen sensings sentencings session today. Having studied the case thoroughly including every word presented by Michael Cohen, and his defense lawyers announced in court that he believes an accepts every word of the prosecutor's case against Michael Cohen, every word judge. William Pauley said I've reviewed the revised pre sentence investigation. Important I adopt. The findings of fact in that report has money on in other words, he adopts the prosecutors view of the evidence as his own in court today. The judge said Mr. Cohen committed to campaign finance crimes on the eve of the two thousand sixteen presidential election with the intent to influence the outcome of that election. That's the judge talking that is the finding of. The fact of a federal judge the judge has filed that fact after looking at all the evidence in the Michael Cohen case before he was sentenced Michael Cohen stood and said something that the Trump loyalists in the United States Senate and the house representatives in the millions of Trump loyalists around the country should listen to very carefully quote. My weakness can be characterized as blind loyalty to Donald Trump. And I was weak for not having the strength to question and to refuse his demands. Every single Republican Senator owes America arrestation of exactly those words word for word. Michael Cohen went on to say for months now, the president of the United States one of the most powerful men in the world publicly mocks me calling me a rap and a liar and insists that the court sentenced me to the absolute maximum time in prison, not only is this improper it creates a false sense that the president can weigh in on the outcome of judicial proceedings that implicate him.

So he could own it. And so he could then kill it as a campaign favor for Donald Trump. The prosecutor's press release says AM I admitted that it made the hundred and fifty thousand dollar payment in concert with the candidates presidential campaign and in order to ensure that a woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the two thousand sixteen presidential presidential election AM. I further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment. Was to suppress the woman's story. So as to prevent it from influencing. The election. David Packers name does not appear in this press released. But that means what that press release says means David pecker himself told the prosecutors that the money he paid to suppress Karen McDougal story was paid to prevent it from influencing the election. There are other possible witnesses at the National Enquirer who might be telling the prosecutors the same thing. And so we now have Michael Cohen and David pecker, and possibly others at the National Enquirer who have told federal prosecutors that the money was paid to influence the election, the press release explains that the prosecutors agreement with David pecker and damn I not to prosecute the company is because AM I promoted provided quote, substantial and important assistance in this investigation and its agreement to provide cooperation in the future. Cooperation in the future. The only future that this investigation has about these campaign law violations. The only future it has is a future prosecution of the person referred to as individual one in the prosecutor's case, the president of the United States. The prosecutors have repeatedly described by cocoons election crimes as having been committed in coordination with an at the direction of individual an individual one is of course, Donald Trump. So Michael Cohen was sentenced to federal prison today for doing what Donald Trump told him to do that makes Donald Trump as guilty of exactly the same crimes as Michael Cohen. And that is why David pecker and AM is quote cooperation in the future. Was announced publicly today outside of the courtroom outside of any legal filings by federal prosecutors in New York, the judge in Michael Cohen sensings sentencings session today. Having studied the case thoroughly including every word presented by Michael Cohen, and his defense lawyers announced in court that he believes an accepts every word of the prosecutor's case against Michael Cohen, every word judge. William Pauley said I've reviewed the revised pre sentence investigation. Important I adopt. The findings of fact in that report has money on in other words, he adopts the prosecutors view of the evidence as his own in court today. The judge said Mr. Cohen committed to campaign finance crimes on the eve of the two thousand sixteen presidential election with the intent to influence the outcome of that election. That's the judge talking that is the finding of. The fact of a federal judge the judge has filed that fact after looking at all the evidence in the Michael Cohen case before he was sentenced Michael Cohen stood and said something that the Trump loyalists in the United States Senate and the house representatives in the millions of Trump loyalists around the country should listen to very carefully quote. My weakness can be characterized as blind loyalty to Donald Trump. And I was weak for not having the strength to question and to refuse his demands. Every single Republican Senator owes America arrestation of exactly those words word for word. Michael Cohen went on to say for months now, the president of the United States one of the most powerful men in the world publicly mocks me calling me a rap and a liar and insists that the court sentenced me to the absolute maximum time in prison, not only is this improper it creates a false sense that the president can weigh in on the outcome of judicial proceedings that implicate him. Donald Trump stems stands implicated tonight in the crimes of Michael Cohen implicated..

"I mean, would you be surprised if pecker had turned on Trump any chance you think his loyalty to Trump extends all the way to the southern district? No, certainly not. I think the the old gang of Michael Cohen, David pecker and President Trump. Are are now all strange. No one's talking to anyone. And I think everyone's out to save their own skin. Maybe Larry long-term if this reportings true. Do you think the President Trump has more to be worried about with the southern district or New York or with the molar investigation? That's a really interesting question. Personally. I think the Muller investigation if they come up with solid evidence that President Trump was involved with coordinating. You're colluding with Russia about the election. I think that's a real bombshell. And I think that is the most serious allegation but short of that, I think the campaign finance allegations. The southern district of New York are very serious and southern district of New York seems to be going its own way, and is really investigating these things. So I think he actually worried about both the other thing about the southern district of New York is they also seem to be the one that's looking at his family's finances, and and the business deals, and what you have there is you know, is the classic ace of the prosecutor looking at what is basically a business empire. And seeing how it was created. What what it did over the years and President Trump may have an his family may have a lot to worry about that. Larry, jerry. Thank you. Both very much. Really? Appreciate you out front press next. Former first lady Michelle Obama opening up about a struggle, many, women know all too well. I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we all talk about.

"Did you hear that David pecker as apparently flipped on Trump, he's been doing catch and kill for from for decades. This is gonna be huge. Okay. Well, have you guys, let's get political. Well, just quickly just a quick update. Interesting things happened last week with this pecker Trump situation and AM. I in National Enquirer. What I love about this is that David pecker turns out to be turned out to be just evil in general. He's not like team Trump or team anyone. It turns out he's just terrible. So a right. He follows they basically indicted him to testify in this case in this the case, that's what is the case, whatever. Yeah. What's the case, but there's like Pacific parts of it. Like there was a part of this that they this. They basically were calling him into it, and then he got out of it by giving up more information essentially immunity by saying, I will talk about anything right? He apparently allegedly, I guess no, maybe confirmed had a safe in his office filled with all of his catch and kill stories, and other damning information about not just Trump other people, but he kept it in his office. And it was sort of a power play because he was like, I have all of this accessible anytime. So like dare me, you know rate and it had nothing to do with protecting Trump. He was just like a, hey man, like I'll do whatever to get this vast situation. Also, the other funny thing was when that clip came out of Trump that we played on the show of Trump kind of saying stuff about it. He kind of says, what if David pecker gets hit by a car? Like that's what he he thinks. Do you hear that right? They're talking and they're like, we should by all of his stuff just in case he's like, yeah. I mean, he could get hit by a car. It's like, you know, actually there's no courts to decide, right? So there there's no loyalty here. So I guess we're just what the update was essentially was like, he's not doing anything. Good glove come on. That's not why per Rachel Maddow. Oh, what's fun about this as far as I understand. Tell me Rachel, as far as I understand it, what's which I guess is obvious, but I didn't. The the distinction is very obvious. But what's interesting about immunity deals specifically is that when you have immunity deals, you can't not talk about like you can no longer plead the fifth about anything when you have unity deals and you have to answer everyone's grains. So he's going to answer all the questions credibly. And it's this guy works in paperwork. So you know, he has all the docs. He had thing. Not that we need to tie it back to, you know who weekly and stuff, but I feel like the potential consequences like implications of this are pretty extreme in terms of just us leaving choir, needing political news out of it, like, what will this do to us weekly? You You know. know, I mean, think of, like I mean, and. And..

"The president has denied and continues to the the underlying claim. So news, the White House, nor the president has budged from that tonight of the underlying allegations, even after the Coen tape came out, even after Cohen stood up in court and admitted to working. He says, at the president's direction and with coordination to squelch the dirt. Again, who are you going to believe that the tape, all the reporting, including the New York Times latest or this from the president? Just yesterday. We do everything straight. We do everything by the book. So whether or not the president does everything by the book, Maggie Haberman Jeffrey Toobin. Sure. Do they're back with us now along with CNN political commentator and former Republican presidential candidate and Senator Rick Santorum Maggie Ubad sitting here politely the whole time while I've been talking about you and your reporting. So thank you for that. So since you're here wind energy, what I'm talking about your reporting walk us through the president, Michael Cohen you say, wanted by decades of dirt short. So when when my colleagues, Mike Schmidt and meta Poon I, I wrote about the existence of that tape. We didn't have the audio. It was described to us by people on both sides familiar with it, and the very narrow context of Karen McDougal and reimbursing her. And that was really what everyone focused on. And we've been working on this for weeks where we had today that it turns out that actually there had been this discussion about obtaining everything because there was a concern that David pecker was going to leave, am I? And then. Would be leaving this information in the hands of somebody who they didn't know. As you said this was a grab bag of information. Some may not even have been anything you know, fleshed out or anything real or anything that was actually confirmed. It was some tips. It was a random stories. It was things about golf, but it was this pile of Donald Trump and we know he likes control and this clearly you can see from this this grab bag of stuff. David pecker had been at AM I for really long time. This was pretty clear from the audio and from our reporting. This was not some plan that Michael Cohen had dreamed up this was and he said this in court, what he was told to do by Donald Trump is go deal with this. So he was going and dealing with this in the court papers. You know, there's a reference to the candidate. He's not named there are clear references on tape down Weisselberg who was given immunity in order to testify to this, but but they all have some connection to this where this leaves. I don't know. I'm not a campaign finance lawyer. It's possible. The president would then say, look, I was buying these things for years. We were bearing these things for years and it had nothing to do with the election. I think that becomes more complicated with the cone guilty plea. Did you ever do? But coincidentally or perhaps not? So you done reporting on David Becker and President Trump in their long, long relationship. If there's information that David pecker has on the president, I, it could be a lot of it. You know, David pecker American media, American media actually published an inhouse magazine for the Trump hotels. I mean, they were business partners with Trump in certain ventures. That's how that's close closely where and what I thought was so fascinating about Maggie story was how as long as David pecker was there, everything was going to be fine. The they could keep in that certainly would pecker said to me in very explicit terms like, yeah, we bought Karen McDougal story because we wanted to protect our friend, the president, and that apparently was the guiding principle for all of the editors decisions at the National Enquirer. The what's so fascinating about this story is that they were so concerned that pecker might leave, so they wanted to get their hands on all the dirt so that pecker even if he was gone, they'd still be protected. It's not like you're speculating about that because we heard it on the tape and they say they outlet was hit by a. Which is very of your New York way of putting it..

So Mr. I like to give the president different kinds of jobs, sheriff jor piles up for election in Arizona, Florida, huge progress in Florida, huge conservatives. It's a battle. Royale don't miss any of the election coverage tonight. And of course all that will be available for members as well. All right, casper. Let's get started. All right. We begin with some late breaking news from the day. David pecker the CEO of m. I National Enquirer that is the publication under the parent company of AM. I has resigned, but not from AM. I, he's resigned from post media boards that is a Canadian media company. They have released a press release saying that David noted that it is important for him to focus his efforts on ensuring that businesses. Are best positioned for continued growth. Now, again, he has not as far as we know at this moment. Resigned from AM. I parent company of National Enquirer, but what we do know about him is that he has turned on Trump. Remember, he's a Trump supporter who had done these catch and kill contracts with individuals who had dirt on Trump. And so now he's cooperating with investigators in regard to potential illegal campaign contributions who knows what he's going to tell stories. But we do know is it's not looking good for him if he's willing to resign from this board. Don't you don't get it, twisted catching kill, not like Vladimir Putin, but you catch and kill story. So they would pay a lot of money to someone who thought, hey, the national enquirers interested in the story about Donald Trump. I'm going to sell to them and they're gonna feature it wrong. Now going to feature it. They're in cahoots with Donald Trump. That's why he has gotten immunity and given evidence against Donald Trump. It appears and that's why he was in world of trouble because some of the stuff they were doing was potentially illegal and apparently definitely legal. That's why he needed immunity violating campaign finance laws among other possible legal violations. And so it's not good enough to get him off the air my position because that companies apparently structured for lies. And that's kind of the whole point of the company. Have you ever checked out the National Enquirer? Have you ever seen any of their headlines and credit. Yeah, but but a lot of people do because huge of this country and all other countries are apparently mental, which just didn't know it until the internet when they formed a community of mental people. And so and then sort of watching Infowars anyway. So. By the way, I just wanna give discredit post media why they're asking pecker to step down. He has stepped down. So my question is they own most of Canada's newspapers. Why did you have David pagarini board in the first place? A guy who runs National Enquirer, which is nothing, but fiction and preposterous stories that have no connection to real news. It should be deep deepen barris -ment to have that man on any news organizations board let alone the political hatchet job that he's done apparently for years upon years on behalf of Donald Trump and others. Well, I think that this is yet another example of how the media, whether it be in the United States or other countries like Canada is not dominated or controlled by the left. Okay. So the people that you hear crying about the media being leftists are usually the people who know that the David pecker. Of the world really do have more control than any progressive ever has. There's no such thing as liberal media. Okay. There's definitely no such thing as progressive media with the exception of this show. Yeah. So if you say we're, we're progressive God, damn, right. We are. We don't hide that at all. We're home a progressives, join us dot com Sean. But if you say the CNN a multi-billion dollar corporation is run by liberals who care about one progressive policies? No, they are a public corporation. They care about maximizing profit period. The end, all those multibillion dollar media, where corporations that are public in nature by law must only care about maximizing profit. That means.

"Howard also were very important participants in the conspiracy to commit those crimes last night. At the beginning of this program, we wondered whether David pecker might already be cooperating with federal prosecutors and about ten minutes later, we deliver. The breaking news. David Becker was indeed reportedly cooperating with federal prosecutors. That's what we knew last night. And today we discovered the David pecker has already been granted immunity and his cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors along with Dylan Howard. And as the day wore on, we learned more about what David pecker knows and what he might possess the Associated Press is reporting. The National Enquirer kept a safe containing documents on hush money payments, and other damaging stories at killed as part of its cozy relationship with Donald Trump, leading up to the two thousand sixteen presidential election. People familiar with the arrangement told the Associated Press Dylan, Howard removed them from the safe in the weeks before Trump's inauguration. According to one person directly familiar with the events. It was unclear whether the documents were destroyed or simply were moves to a location known to fewer people. Here's who knows what was in that safe. David pecker Dylan Howard, Michael Cohen and Donald Trump. And with today's reporting, the president might have even. More trouble sleeping tonight than he did last night. The president has has to somehow fall asleep knowing that David pecker is telling federal prosecutors, everything he knows about Donald Trump and he has been collecting the dirt on Donald Trump for years and years and years and stashing it in the National Enquirer safe and that dirt might include recordings. Prosecutors said that the evidence they have obtained to prove that Michael Conan, Donald Trump, David pecker conspired to commit federal crimes includes hardcopy documents seized electron devices and audio recordings made by Mr. Cohen. And the New York Times is reporting that the prosecutors might now have even more recordings from the National Enquirer Dylan Howard. The company's chief content officer who is also said to be cooperating, was known to have a recording device in his office according to people familiar with his operations. And so the National Enquirer after many years of protecting Donald Trump is now helping a federal criminal investigation of Donald Trump. In other words, David pecker and the national. Inquirer have flipped. This whole thing about flipping they call it. I know all about flipping for thirty forty years. I've been watching flippers. Everything's wonderful. And then they get ten years in jail, and they flip on whoever the next highest one is or as high as you can go. It almost be outlawed. They've had many friends involved in this stuff. It's called flipping, and it almost oughta be a legal. He knows David pecker has flipped, and he knows what David pecker knows about him. And last night at one, ten AM the sleepless president tweeted this primal scream, no collusion rigged which hunt exclamation point all capital letters. There's the president of the United States, three hours after we first reported on this program that David pecker had flipped and the president is rage tweeting. No collusion rigged witch-hunt. When the special prosecutor was closing in on president, Richard Nixon, he wandered the halls of the White House at all hours of the night in a mixture of anger, depression bitterness and drunken. Super, but he didn't have Twitter, and so we didn't know the next day what he had been thinking at one ten AM. Tonight is going to be worse because tonight Donald Trump knows not only the David pecker is cooperating, but that he's been granted immunity..
