Suspect in New York City subway scare apprehended by police

"The hunt for the man who caused a bomb scare in new york city today surveillance video uh-huh shows him leaving to rice cookers at a busy subway station. You might recall a similar looking device used in the boston marathon terrorist attacks. They were left just blocks from the nine eleven memorial auriol the scare coming just minutes before similar discovery across town in the chelsea neighborhood. That's where someone left another rice cooker outside next to a trash. Can investigators say this may or may not be related to the first two devices. I want to bring in former c._i._a. And f._b._i. Official phil mudd he's also author of the new book called black site the cia in the post nine eleven world phil. Thanks so much for joining us. <hes> police are stopping short of saying. This guy is a suspect but obviously putting rice cookers on a subway mezzanine and another on a platform isn't normal behavioral. Go heck yeah. I don't see a lot of difference between person of interest and suspect they're still hunting them easier to say easier to say he's a person of interest we questioned him and now oh he's a suspect and to step back and say we think he's a suspect we ought to charge them and then say actually we were wrong from the outset hunting them. They'll find him. I don't see a big distinction between person adventurous. Suspect investigators say as of now. They're investigating this as a hoax. What does that mean to you. Look the investigators have a lot of experience devices. She's like this. They seem them. In new york. City pressure devices. They saw them as recently as a couple years ago in chelsea and new york city. I suspect the bomb tax. The bomb technicians have already looked at advice instead. It won't explode that's not to say the individual won't be charge. That's to say we looked at advice. If he tried to explode it wouldn't happen so that's a hoax. It's also potentially a federal charge and obviously the to anti-terrorist officers who are on patrol with the ones yeah. I alerted about the suspicious devices. It seems to be proactive protective measure to have people like this out there. Yeah that's true but look back at what we've had in. This goes back ten twelve fifteen years devices in a trash cans in subways. If you have a backpack that's unintended if you have a rice cooker a pressure cooker in a trash can if you have a pressure cooker in the subway you know you you look at that and say regardless of whether that things explosive device if it's unattended. If there's nobody around you've got to say. We got to be worried about that. That's sort of a new normal. Would you call this a success story in the sense that they were spotted. The officials came in nothing happened. Even if it was a hoax oh heck yeah yeah. Look look at what american says today see something say something whether it's an unusual person or a backpack that's unattended now. It's a rice cooker potentially. That's that's unattended. You want people to say if i see something. That's unusual and i'd ride the metro dc all the time if i saw backpack or rice cooker that was unintended. I'd say somebody's you gotta know. I'm not sure it's a device but somebody's gotta know about that. This is a success

"Colin Powell made a very similar case, the case against the Iranians still will have its doubters. Do these new photographs? Prove anything, can Trump wants the world to blindly believe the CIA? I have more questions. I got burned by the Iraq scenario. I believe the anti on Iraq. It was wrong. Well show us the evidence European nations are demanding more evidence, there's been no evidence. There's some doubt being expressed by some of our allies about the quality of. The intelligence. Let's face. It says falsehoods every day, particularly out of the White House, and that has undermined our credit believable. These are the people have been swearing by intelligence in two and a half years now when the intelligence community is telling us something about Iran here come these people. Well, you guys miss us during the Iraq war about weapons of mass destruction for two and a half years. They've told us we cannot west of the intelligence community. It's a kin to being unamerican unpatriotic. How dare we, we cannot aspera these people this way, we cannot cast doubt on these people. They are what's separating us and keeping us free. Now, these people dump all over the intelligence people. You can't trust them. Since when do we trust, the C, I A that was Erin Burnett team? Trump wants the world of blindly believed the CIA you're just for two and a half years. Now, we move onto Phil Mudd, the former C I A deputy director or some such thing counter terrorists center, deputy director vary was on CNN this morning. New day question seems that the situation is getting more precarious. I wonder if you can tell us what the US strategy with Iran is, I can't, we have a nuclear deal. We stepped away from the Europeans are saying, why did you do that? The Iranians are complying. I think the globe is looking at us saying, we don't wanna go with you, because you're threatening stability in the region for a country that is Ron who was on the path to doing nothing on nukes. I think a lot of people are saying what the heck is up with this. Can I translate this, this is the good old standby? You can count on it line of thinking in the post. World War, Two order, where the United States is always suspect. The United States is to blame the United States should never Huffman puff. United States should never project its power United States, should never display. Superpower status United States needs to always be humbled United States. And that's exactly what this is. We don't want to go with you, because you're threatening stability in the region like we're threatening the stability in the region with Iran. We're threatening blame us. It's always. That's what Trump is turned upside down to these people cannot deal with it in Trump's world. We're not to blame. It's not our fault. We're not the bad guys the Iranians are the bad guys and giving them nuclear weapons in the future was a stupid thing to do and we're not gonna do it. These people have had their policy turned right back against them. They can't stand it. They can't deal with it, and that's why they're so hypocritical for two and a half years. The intelligence agencies are in fallible. But now the intelligence ages are telling something that Trump likes in the intelligence agencies should not be listened to we can't trust them these people know how they sound a nation.

"He has to tell the truth to durum, because even though his testimony will be given overseas. He can be indicted in the United States if he lies to durum. So I assume he's going to tell the truth because this is the big this is the big casino now and what he's going to prove is that the F B I lied in the FIS warrants, and they lied to congress, and they lied to everybody about what they knew about Steel's behavior. This is the big. The walls are beginning to close in on the FBI fraudsters. Yeah. We'll see. Yeah, we'll see where that goes. But while I think it is a big a really big deal that Durham is going to have him sitting in, well, not literally because it's from he's going to be across the pond doing it, but he's going to have him available to them. Well, the question is still isn't testify, right. As you know, doesn't live in not. A United States citizen. He doesn't have to testify. What's so why is and we played earlier from CNN Phil, Phil Mudd their their, their consultant, and nobody really knows. I mean he was he was saying, well, he wants to get back into the business and aids credibility. He's never gonna credibility anymore. I don't see that ever happened. Everybody's trying to think what his what is his motivation to do? So I can't tell you what his motivation is because I is it that Durham has something which would mean that Barr had something that could lead to charges from the United States against you against you. That's a possibility and there and that they've made a deal..

"I want to go back I had to hurry through this before we get back to the phones, Don lemon, and Phil Mudd here talking about Christopher steals, work and lemon. This is classic Mudd is trying to tell him that steal all of a sudden, now we knows a bad actor, he's trafficking BS. None of what he said, was real. None of it was drew. He's got a lot of explaining to do says, Phil Mudd who originally bought into it, and the loved it. So he's talking to Don lemon about it. Don lemon wants to protect feel. So Don lemon says, when how's the steals faulty isn't he just supposed to gather the information, and then the intelligence community is supposed to figure it out? And the stupidity of the question is that steel is the intelligence community? Steel is the guy his it's supposed to be verified before he presents it to anybody. If it's legitimate Intel, it's supposed to have some grain. That's what mud's telling him here. It's gotta have some relation to the truth, because then the analysts take over and start, you know, putting it all together and seeing if there is anything here, but you just don't submit B S. If you're an intelligence agent, and you're doing legitimate counter Intel, you don't make stuff up and submit it. And what mud says here, know what he's supposed to do is gather be information. And then the Republicans Democrats use it in a political ad. No. This is less. I missing something here. This is an amazing admission. This is Phil Mudd never-trumper extraordinary admitting that the only thing steals stuff was to be used for was thirty political ads. For Hillary Clinton, and he was a political opposition researcher, while excuse me. Yes, he was. But for two years, you guys didn't portray him is that he was legitimate Intel and you made the smartest man in TV Don lemon believe he was interested in a legitimate until man. I'll tell you. They are really fleeing now and like our caller pointed out. Phil Mudd, then went on Saturday use this, if they use this dossier, defies, a warrant start spying on people. There is going to be held, but would it be if not only did they use it? They renewed. It three times four times it was used and people like Komi vouched for it to the FIS, a court in the final judge. What do you mean? If. So. And bar is going to get to the bottom of this. I think bars farther along in this than anybody knows. And they're. The real question. Everybody asks me is you think you're really gonna be rush indictments. I just can't see Washington indicting these people, I don't care. I just can't say no, you can't see it. It's hard to it's hard to envision. But I think. It's not just us folks that realize what a really what's this is so worse than dangerous. What has been done here? Newness Tomi yesterday. In the interview, we've got so much lying going on here under oath by people that have testified various congressional and Senate committees. And there are legitimate penalties and punishments for that, as we all know, but Hillary Clinton got away with it. She got away with lying. She got away with everything trafficking, and classified data having an illegal server illegally raising money. I mean she got away with all. That's what Komi July fifth two thousand sixteen. When he exonerated her so understandable, that people would think everybody else is going to get away with it. But I, I don't think they are whether anybody's going to jail who the heck knows I don't know. But. I think I think bar is, is on this case, end of his career nothing to lose here really is. No, no deleterious impact on his career future. This kind of stuff cannot be allowed to go on and unpunished, and people not held accountable, but noone as really didn't have a good question when did, and how did the crossover happen from all of these Hillary people to the FBI at what point did the FBI intelligence community decide to take Hillary Clinton opposition research, and turn it into a counter intelligence investigation.

And here's what he says about this announcement that Manafort Manafort that Flynn was not going probably not gonna go to jail specific references to cooperation on Russia's. So if you put the quantity of information together, the fact that their specific reference to Russia, three ongoing investigations mentioned in that document.

There's about aside sixteen shoe gonna drop here in that shoe is not going to be related to lying or to just financial irregularities which we've seen in the past. I think they're centering in.

"Official Phil Mudd. He joins us now along with former FBI supervisory special agent Josh Campbell. Philip just wondering were you surprised to find out? This guy had actually read into you on Twitter. Yeah. I was walking around CNN this afternoon. Just a couple of hours ago and someone said you realize that your name is out there. And I was sort of like, what are you talking about? And within a couple of minutes. Somebody shows me a tweet from I think it was August twenty four th where this individual look to me like he threatened my life. He said hug your family, which suggests to me he's coming after me said, you're next. It took me about a couple of minutes. I I've seen a lot in my life. Anderson to step back and say, you know, if he had decided to get in that van and travel to my house things could have turned out differently. So I mean, I'm not worried I don't feel threatened today. I'll go out in the streets of New York City. But it was a moment where you realize the immediacy of the environment we live in. And it's not just theoretical. I'm sure you see it in your Email as well. It is real by by the way, just in passing. I got. Another Email today via my website that I had to pass a local police department because it also contained a threat that's not uncommon in the environment today. Yeah. I mean, I've had the FBI in my office. August twenty fourth was believe when he tweeted about that that was only four days four days earlier, the president had tweeted about you as well. Do you have any doubt that there's a cause and effect there? There's got to be. I mean, if you look at all the people who've been named in shame by the president has everybody said, I don't blame the president for someone who's got a I'm guessing some sort of mental disorder, but I do look at individuals like this. And there's a way to think about them. I can describe you. I saw a lot of people like this. When I watched extremists. I look at individuals like this and they're looking for a word, I would call validation. This person's got violent background. He's looking for somebody, regardless of the ideology, political or religious to tell them. It's okay. To go out and act. I'm not saying the president told him go out and act. I'm saying in that mindset somebody's gonna say, especially when the presents got fifty five million Twitter followers. Somebody among them is gonna. Wow. The president must be telling me right or wrong to go out and do something against these people. It's only ninety six hours between when the president came after me and try to shame me. And when this person put my name out in his own Twitter feed. I mean, I'm I'm not Tom Cruise. I'm not recognizable. There's only one way I could figure out that this guy decided to come after me. Josh how much will this guys? You know? I don't even know you call them political beliefs, or, you know, his focus on politics be part of the investigation. Well, it's a key part of the investigation because when these incidents happen, we always talk about motive it's something that we want to get to what drives people to act not only. So we can investigate and answer the case at hand. But you also want to figure out okay, or the warning signs here that we can pick up on other cases, other other people out there that fit the same mold that we want to be on the lookout for. So that's all key part. Now, we talked about these commonalities since the devices started being discovered George Soros, and then a number of elected officials. And again, you know, there were some who were coming in and essentially trying to ignore what was staring. Directly in the face about the commonalities of the targets. These Democrats people who've been on the receiving end of IRA from the president and saying, well, perhaps this is some kind of false flag operation, and you know, all kinds of other nonsense here today, you had the United States attorney general standing there and saying no, this person appears to be a partisan, and again, you look at that van it just everything seems to be linking up in that same direction..

How much are you paid for your answer the question then get for for being. They have contracts with the US government that pay mon- not zero. And this is the. Vic- government on this derailed. That's I'm not talking about your role with the federal government. I'm talking. That joking about your, hey salted, and a contractor that consulting firms that they form and that you all get is because you get more money when having consult before having the security Clinton and doesn't happen. I have zero consulting relationship with the US government zero not talking feel. That's a good talking point. I'm not talking about relationship with the government. I'm talking about in the private sector when you have a security, she'd shifts with the private sector that involve my security clearance zero. I get well dollars from consulting companies that deal with US government. Are we clear? Well, I will be clear and saying that everybody in Washington c. knows if you don't want to be honest about it, that's on you. But if you have a security clearance and you keep it, you don't money to have done. Get out. Phil, he's not your show. And this. About now w sell defensive about this, but your voices still here you can still do whatever you will. Of the intelligence community.

It's getting personal here a in fact here and Phil makes a point which is, which is a point of fact win a Phil Mudd who serves an advisory board for counter terror. Threats goes and participates in conversations agency about those threats. He's not getting paid for that. And that's how Bill mcraven is consulted on counter terror operations because he led dozens of missions, deadly missions. We're soldiers risk their lives. He's not paid for that and we have you what you seem to be doing here? No. Is that because people have jobs outside of government after they leave government? Therefore you're saying that is justification to take away their clearances when when government and. Agencies rely on them for their council. Is that what you're no? No. What I'm arguing Jim is that I appreciate every one of those persons service, and I know how important everyone in the intelligence community serving currently and the past are in the role that they play for this country. But what I'm talking about is the private sector that's not act like all these men and women sit at home all day and just consult with the federal government and don't earn a living. Everybody knows Jim that apart of keeping your clearance means you get more money for.

"Welcome back let's continue the conversation with my panel phil mudd before the break david was asking in order to have somebody go in as a confidential source and talk to different trump campaign advisers who intelligence we're picking up had maybe talked to people with relationships with russia so this confidential source was sussing out what kind of sign off do you need to does that need to go all the way up to the director of the fbi to get somebody to go into a presidential campaign and talk to adviser i in this case i'd bet on that look let's do reality if you're in the fbi confidential sources are run everyday the run out of local offices this is not a local office operation you can look at this operation and say look the local office we'll have us headquarters in in consultation with the director is going to say we understand this one is a little bit high level as a presidential campaign that said there there are suggestions if the obama administration cleaning the white house would have directed the insertion of an informant that that doesn't happen that the director of the fbi lynn i wonder it was it was james combing shocking oh you looking at me like the white house and said oh no but i'm to say they'll come all one twisted white house does not direct how to run intimate suggesting the obama administration did it no i'm not suggesting that at all what would they call me comi who's got a vested interest in all right let's be accused him of the woods but what president trump is alleging is right president obama ordered because he said in one of his tweets obama did this obama send somebody in there to do this when i don't understand about this conspiracy theory is what did this obama plant due to destroy trump's campaign held it as a secret or through the election yeah we're told the new york times that there was nothing to any of these investigations right it doesn't make sense and even.

"Jay hassle really really taking it to senator jack reed from rhode island i mean this hearing was so bad for the democrats even phil mudd phil mudd is not friendly to the trump administration okay he's a commentator over on cnn when he just launched into these senators who are attacking hassle and he's totally right about this let's go dirty and let's go ugly i was among the cia officers fifteen years ago who spoke with the congress in detail about the techniques we used i spoke about the techniques that were authorized by the department of justice i spoke to republicans and democrats they were either silent or supportive they told us this was not tortured that it comply with the constitution and their comply with us law you can vote against gina hassle but don't give me the collective amnesia about how it's on ci i wanna talk to the senators who told us that they represented american values in conveniently in two thousand to two thousand three this represented american values now that we don't face the same threat and that we have different senators it's okay to attack one of my former colleagues i am pissed off this is collective amnesia we didn't do it america did it get over it exactly right philmont on the rampage in for once actually right on the money okay so well done film it is amazing how democrats again rewrite history and it's just a monster of how they read history and every element so instead of looking at the context of the waterboarding and saying hey we just got hit in three thousand americans just died should we pour some water over college muhammad's face to maybe stop that instead of them saying well you know that was probably a pretty justify decision the.

"Okay but just just on the issue classification just for clarity there could the president classify retroactively those documents and then the question would be did he did so did he do so in his own interest well the the answer is the administration the classification authorities could classify these documents retroactively remember here we have a sort of karma issue hillary clinton who is james comey's bete noire got in trouble because after the fact certain emails that she sent that we're not marked as classified we're designated as classified it could be the james comey's getting into the same kind of trouble i don't know there's an inspector general investigation of this among other things just underway but it is not out of the question that documents and statements that were not originally marked classified could later be designated as classified so phil mudd the president's been talking about pardons again this weekend about the deceased boxer jack johnson it read quote yes i am considering a full pardon it was just ten days ago you'll remember that scooter libby was officially pardoned by the president white house press secretary sarah sanders not refusing the possibility of a pardon for michael cohen as well fill is there a way that tweet on johnson following the decision tend to get ten days ago on scooter libby is just a coincidence or do you see that as a message to some of the president's associates who are now in legal trouble.

"Show our viewers was just briefed on the shooting youtube headquarters in san bruno california our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved thank you to our phenomenal law enforcement officers and first responders that are currently on the scene tweet just moments ago from president trump phil mudd it's encouraging that this is not seen as a terrorist incident at something local presumably because the fbi is not insure that's right if the suggests to me that that the law enforcement officers on the scene already have as she mon was suggesting some indicators about motive because if you had open questions about motive if you thought that the motivation for example where political terrorism the feds would move in and probably take charge of the case so i think that's pretty significant indication here of what the the local officials think about the motivation of this individual probably local probably a personal motivation just to recap the suspect of the shooter is dead according to the police chief barberini self inflicted wound the shooter is dead but at least four victims have been transferred to local hospitals with gunshot wounds we know that some have gone to stanford university medical center others of gone the other hospitals in the local area and that number clearly could go up these are all i report i certainly go up and we know the police are still searching the building they said they were searching so they could potentially find the people who were heard perhaps someone may be afraid maybe hiding in a closet and we've seen this before and is afraid to come out but it seems by everything the police are telling us that they have this under control and and so now we're moving towards finding out exactly what happened significant that we know the fbi says that the locals the local police are handling this so that gives us a lot of indication about where this investigation is going it does sound like they were number of shots fired that's concerning and then it's going to be this question about who is this person how did this weapon get inside youtube you would have to.

"Our back and i've got ray ellen on which reports the vol forty eight if teen could make me an offer that i couldn't refuse at that point you know once two thousand fifteen km two thousand sixteen there's nothing really that entice me that would make me say no i'm going to couch really this opportunity because my kids with much more for so check out the full forty eight now on the bleacher report or subscribe at apple podcasts from the san bruno police chief edvard berina saying the shooter suspected shooter is dead female apparently a self inflicted wound killed this individual female shooter at least four others suffering from gunshot wounds taken to local hospitals the incidents occurred both at youtube headquarters and the police chief says at jason business no more details than that no identification of the female shooter but he says it looks like it was self inflicted phil mudd and she appropos are watching all of this mode first to you what you learn that while my question is how did this person get if this person was inside the building i'm not really clear from the press conference it sounded like they found her inside the building obviously is an employee and with their policies are guns and so the question here is going to be certainly that and the other issue there was some victims that were found outside of the building perhaps they were running from the scene when they were found with gunshot wounds so questions about how they were injured perhaps and who was this woman targeting i guess is is the big question now was some kind of a domestic type situation perhaps a love triangle it's certainly seems that early on when i was talking officials this was an indication to them that this was a murder perhaps some time of type of tempted murdersuicide early on we had not been able to confirm that so we go with it so they law enforcement had a really good handle on this very.

"Wolf another tragedy playing out and i was just thinking you know a month and a half ago i sat there with you and with shimon and phil mudd and here we are yet another another incident that we're trying to make sense of as we look at the size of this facility that's going to be key here as far as the length of time it takes determine where is the threat is there still a threat obviously law enforcement officers responding in proportion to the massive undertaking that's a head of them as far as working through that facility determining what they're dealing with talking to witnesses we've seen that fusion of state local federal law enforcement officers in an incident like this you're going to see that mutual aid you're gonna see officers responding in assisting at the beginning no one cares about who's in charge is having that unified command people coming together being able to determine is there a threat and how can we best put our resources to use in order to protect lives and they're still a threat here so we're seeing that i think you know at the top of the hour we learned that hospitals are now starting to receive a victims which changes things a lot a lot of these incidents unfortunately in the last couple of years hospitals have now become a huge part of the planning and practice of some of these drills and some of these active shooter incidents ready for that kind of response and i think you know unfortunately we always hoped the number is low obviously but to hear them now taking victims obviously changes this a lot and we'll just have to continue to monitor the figure out what what the extent is that we're dealing with and you know what the next step is we see law enforcement officers there frisking people as they come out you know trying to put the employee's in an area where they can talk to them where they can go through and determine is your threat here obviously parkland there was the issue with the shooter actually being able to exit the facility in as you recall was was arrested off site and so that's obviously forefront of mine for a law enforcement as well as you know do they know who the threat is.
