"Talk about the incident in history that made called bernstein undeservedly famous Your latest piece with a wonderful title from the editors at american greatness is fifty years of deep state propaganda.

There is no evidence that he actually committed a crime with those payments. You know there never has been and Ever tried because he wasn't well enough to face trial but Or or do you know to go and give evidence at trial. He got a pardon so he wasn't then be tried and sell that The fact is that there isn't it. I haven't the inconvenient fact about this whole Watergate business that Ah it. There is no evidence. Nixon committed a crime. Some people in his entourage that there's no better but they did not allege that mr nixon told them not to basically perjury charges in getting and obstruction of justice but none of them alleged that the nixon told them to do and And and so. The whole thing rests on did his approval of payments to watergate thin than some some of the which did that constitute obstruction of justice and all the closest we have is powered hunt as whereas it just tragically died in a plane crash near the number of young children and nixon said we'll give him give him the money he wants but he didn't say fung as he he's quieter wise under oath or anything like that.

How Have US-China Relations Changed Since 1971?

"With president biden now at the helm and the chinese economy predicted to overtake the us. In just a few years. How have relations between the two nations changed since kissinger's visit in nineteen seventy one. And what is the future of these two superpowers who better to ask than vincent. Knee the guardians china affairs correspondent who presented a documentary on bbc world. Service called when kissinger went to china. I started off by asking him. How nineteen seventy-one meeting came about what to some extent. It was a multi year project. Starting with both sides signaled intention of contact. This was initially conducted a very quietly and in a very subtle way beginning with the us. Calling china it's proper name at people's republic of china instead of red china or communist china and in beijing mao also wants to get in touch with richard nixon and his administration so they stay on the media's began to reduce the use of blessed capitalists. The things like this a eventually president. Nixon told pakistani president. Y'all calm and yao coundon tote chairman mao. That's the americans was serious. So that was the beginning of this contact. At in retrospect it was a very practical way of changing the course of the cold war. If you think about in the ninety sixties seventies when richard nixon came to power in ninety sixty eight vietnam. War was still a huge controversy in the us. Adding china around ninety sixty nine. There was a border war between china and the soviet union and around around autumn nineteen. Sixty nine It was rumored that's soviet union wants to to plan a pre emptive strike on china's so chairman mao at the time was really looking for a way out of this. And of course you know for nixon.

Georgia prosecutor investigating Trump's call to Raffensperger

"In addition to the events of january sixth. The article mentioned just one other specific event quote president. Trump's conduct on january six twenty twenty one followed his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the twenty twenty presidential election. Those prior efforts included a phone call on january second during which president trump urged the secretary of state of georgia. Brad ravensburger to find enough votes. To overturn georgia presidential election results. President trump threatened secretary burger if he failed to do so. I know that that thing in georgia that little episode of attempted election interference by donald trump has been swallowed up by history already. This phone call was eclipsed by the violent attack on the us capitol just four days later. It's like how the resignation of vice president. Spiro agnew got swallowed up in history because watergate forced the resignation of president nixon right after it and so when i wrote a podcast and wrote a book about spiro. Agnew people are like. Who's that guy. He wouldn't believe what a big scandal that was for a minute until a much bigger scandal eclipsed it and made us all forget the earlier one when really really life changing terrible thing happens. It tends to blot out the memory of other really bad stuff. That might have happened just before this and so it is with this georgia call. But there's a reason that this georgia called this january second phone call is the one other specific event that the author author the impeachment resolution decided to include in their charges against former president trump. Because it's because before the january sixth violent attack on the us capitol members of congress. Were already considering a second impeachment of president trump just for that goal because at that point before island attack on the us capitol. His hour-long phone call to georgia secretary of state pushing and threatening george official to try to get the election results overturned there before the attack on the capital that was president trump's most egregious and blatant act of trying to apparently criminally alter and mess with the election results to try to hold onto power. And he not only did it. It was all on tape. So what are we going to do here. But i only need eleven thousand votes found us. I need eleven thousand. Give me a break for you. Know what they did. And you're not reporting it. That's a that's a criminal. That's a criminal offense and you can't let that happen. That's that's a big risk to you and to ryan you lawyers. That's a big risk is not fair to take it away from us like this and it's got to be very costly in many ways and i think you have to say that you're gonna reexamine it and you can reexamine but reexamine it with people that wanna find answers not people that don't wanna find answers. You can't let it happen and you are letting it happen all you know i mean i'm notifying you. You're letting it happen. So all i wanna do is i just wanna find Eleven thousand seven hundred eighty loads. I want you to find exactly enough votes to declare me the winner of the election in your state. And if you don't that's a big risk to you. I'm notifying you all criminal offense by you say you have reexamined. Didn't i actually one or else. And when president trump made that call on january second four days before the attack on the capital he hit already called. Georgia's governor to pressure him. To overturn the state's election results to trump also personally called a level official in the georgia secretary of state's office. The guy in charge of elections investigations and spent a long time. Personally pressuring that guy to quote find the fraud that would result in overturning. The election results in georgia and declaring trump the winner while president trump was making all of these calls personally the top federal prosecutor in atlanta. Us attorney in atlanta resigns under direct pressure from the trump white house because trump felt and communicated to that the us attorney that he was not doing enough to find that non-existent fraud that would somehow allow the overthrowing of the election results. One of the things that made the series of escalating interventions georgia's election so remarkable. Was that it. It was just also blatantly illegal. Not just impeachable but illegal like go to jail illegal. It is against the law in georgia to solicit someone to commit election fraud state election officials to find you exactly the number of votes you need to turn the election result the other way threatening collections officials that they to change vote counts in your favor or else would surely seem to fall under that statute will now even as donald trump's second impeachment trial unfolds in the us senate and what a spectacle it is and that trial unfolds on an article of impeachment that specifically references trump's threatening call to george a secretary of state while nell a high profile state prosecutor in georgia district attorney the largest county in the state fulton county has now opened a criminal investigation that centers on that phone call district attorney. There has sent this letter to george secretary of state governor lieutenant governor and attorney general extracting them all to preserve any and all records related to the two thousand twenty election quote. This letter is notice that the fulton county district attorney has opened an investigation into attempts to influence the administration of the twenty twenty georgia general election. This investigation includes but is not limited to potential violations of georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies conspiracy racketeering violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the elections administration quote. This matter is of high importance. Excuse me the this matter is of high priority. The next fulton county grand jury is due to convene in march.

Legal analysis of Trump impeachment trial

"To the program. Byron York He's the chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner. He's a Fox news contributor in his capacity. The Examiner, he writes the Daily memo. Which is a newsletter. Available each day. He's also author of the book Obsession Inside the Washington Establishments. Never ending War on Trump, Byron. Good to Have you back. Good. Good to Be Here, guys. Thanks very much, Yes, that you've got a lot going on, obviously. And in your latest daily Nemo, you dive into some of these legal arguments and they're really in some ways process arguments. From various Republicans, particularly in the Senate about the upcoming impeachment trial. We know that the impeachment article being transferred over the Senate today with a start date on the trial. February the ninth, so a bit of a delay there, which is what some of the Republicans have been asking for. They've gotten it before we get into some of the other ancillary questions and details about the trial. It seems like and this is based on your reporting. What a fair amount of the Republican opposition to a conviction here in this impeachment trial will be rooted in the question of whether or not it's even appropriate or permissible. To host a trial like this against an official who's no longer in office. Walk us through some of the details and some of the relevant history on this. Well, there's there's been a big debate before Donald Trump River appeared on the scene. There was a big debate over whether a former official can be impeached and tried and removed from office. OK, so the The Constitution, says. Quote Article two section for the president, Vice president and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed on from office on impeachment for and conviction of treason, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. So we hear we've heard that Ah lot and Republicans. In this case we're going to say Well when it says the president shall be removed. That means the president. There's only one of them at a time, and Donald Trump is not the president. Besides removal. The you know an impeachment is the Constitution's main methods for removing a president who's committed some sort of serious misconduct. Removal is irrelevant and Donald Trump's case because he's been out of office. His term expired on January 20th. So Republicans were going to say, Why are we having this big trial to remove a president who is already gone? And Democrats are gonna say well, there's an additional penalty. An impeachment if if someone is impeached and convicted, the Constitution says that punishment will not go beyond shall not extend further than two removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor trust or profit under the United States. That means a federal office like the presidency or senator member of the House. So Democrats going to say that the president's the former president Trump's actions were so serious in the first couple of weeks in January That he must be forbidden from ever holding office again. And that's what the big fight is about. And what you there the way you phrase your question, I think is correct, Which is I think there's some Republicans were going to say, Look, we don't even have to get to the merits of this case. That is whether the president incited insurrection because it's just a fact You can't impeach Ah, president who's already Out of office and they might make the argument is well, Byron even if there are people arguing, yes, they can write. It is legally permissible. They might summer arguing that you and people can come back and say OK. For the sake of argument. Let's say yes, you can do this. And obviously that mean the trial's gonna happen. So it looks like the process of Lisa's moving forward. There's also the prudential question of, should you it does is there A good reason to do this right if he's already gone, and for for some who are very critical of trump on what happened after Election Day, all the way through January, 6 in particular. Touchstone. There is going to be accountability and then for others, it's going to be okay. Whatever you think of what happened, And to be sure, Trump acted badly. And maybe we could have discussed a censure. But why are we wasting all this time to remove someone from office who is already removed from office because his term expired? And I guess you know you want to maybe get to 67 votes, which I think will be very hard to do to convict the guy to then bar him from office, which only takes a bare majority, but the prerequisite is conviction. On and you can also Debate whether or not that's the right decision there as well, because, you know, I think I've been very critical of President Trump on what he did what he said the lies about the stolen election and fostering the environment that lead To that violence in the siege on the capital, But I also sort of feel like if voters decide four years from now that they want him back. I kind of believe that should be up to voters in the United States right to to the citizens of this country, as opposed to up to, you know 51 or 50 senators, plus a tie breaking vote. That's sort of how I'm wrestling through some of these questions on I just wonder on the threshold question. Byron of whether or not this is Even allowed it. All right. I've heard arguments on both sides. Constitutionally of this. There's on Lee one tiny precedent right in today involving a non president who resigned from a position of power. Tell us about that and how it might be relevant here or how it might not correct. First of all, we should say that there is no precedent at all for this in the sense of former president being tried from people's just never ever happened, But they do point to a case of a Cabinet officer, a man named William Belt. Knapp, who was the secretary of war in the 18 seventies and the Grant administration. He was accused very credibly is guilty as hell probably of financial corruption. And so on. On this day that put the house is scheduled to vote to impeach him. And a couple of hours before the scheduled vote. He goes to the White House and resigns. He goes to President Grant Any resigns, and then he says, Well, hey, you can't impeach me. I'm a Warmer official. Well, the house went ahead on impeached him, and then it goes to the Senate, and there's a big debate over well, he's a former official. Can we impeach him or not? And they have a vote. And that's a it's a majority vote of the majority says Yes, we can him impeach him. So then they have a five month trial pretty long deal and he's acquitted because you know that you have to get to a two thirds vote to convict and they didn't get to that. And the reason they didn't get to. It was that there were a lot of senators who believe that it was not in their jurisdiction that he was a former Um, a former official and not in their jurisdiction. So is maybe not about it was not about the guilt on the merits necessarily was about Should we be doing this here? Under these auspices for this purpose, given the fact that this former official is indeed former. So this sort of vote the votes against conviction on that principle rather than the facts of the case. Correct. I think he was. There was consensus that he was guilty of what he's accused of. Now, here's the thing. So that is the one president that Democrats will point to here. But there's a lot of other presidents of officials either being impeached or being threatened with impeachment or impeachment has begun. The process has begun, and they resign and then Congress just drops it. Most of all, obviously the biggest issue. Biggest example of that is President Nixon, who resigned in 1974 ahead of impeachment. But most impeachments in this country involved judges and there've been like close to 50 judges who are either under investigation or impeachment had begun. And they resigned. And then nothing was On, even though his judges they could possibly hold a position under the United States in the future, But they were like qualify. Alcee Hastings opted. Alcee Hastings is a Democratic congressman from Florida. Who is himself an impeached federal judge for bring a bribery and corruption. I believe if memory serves, and he was able to then move on and run for the house and women, and he's been there ever since. He was in peace and removed but not banned from holding future office and the voters in Florida decided to send him to the house. And there is so there you have that there are these two questions. There's There's yes, there is one president in the belt nap case before impeaching a former Cabinet secretary. But then there's all these other examples like dozens of examples of Congress deciding to drop an issue once the person has resigned, and by the way, you'll you'll hear Democrats say, Well, gee, if we don't Try President Trump. Then president resigned right before impeachment and escape all punishment, as if resigning is not a rather large punishment for president. You might wanna ask Nixon about that. But the fact is, that's not even an issue in the Trump case because he did not resign. He served out his full term terminated at noon on January 20th. And now he's the former president.

The Timothy Leary Conviction

The Timothy Leary Conviction

"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

"Rush ball kicking off yet. Another three hour excursion into broadcast exits now. We're going to get to this so called democrat confusion over impeachment in due course we are going to get today. Just just be patient. I want to remind you this golf club business. I have I at first blush, I come, I couldn't be over fifteen thousand dollar refund that wasn't for a golf membership. Let me remind you of something. And I'm not saying that it is. And puts it in a report, obviously. As the night full disclosure. But you remember what Watergate ended up really being all about? The identity of deep throat deep throat, who was Woodward in Bernstein, deep throat. They mysterious cloaked figure that met them in parking garages, and fed them. Whatever they needed to hear that went indict president Nixon. That would cues president Nixon do all kinds of horrible things. President Nixon got Mark felt when he assumed room temperature. It was revealed that he was deep throat. You know who Mark felt was? Mark felt wasn't guy tech Dauphin Nixon for not hiring him to replace Hoover to head up the FBI Mark felt wanted to be FBI director, when J Edgar Hoover. Left the director ship. And felt was so ticked off that he became deep throat and dictated everything that would whatever Bernstein claim. They got. There should other reporting. Some of it was bogus was totally made up some just but felt played these guys like strata various, and all he was was a disgruntled passed over employees. So I'm not I'm not saying that because that's true Muller's got his nose out of joint over a failed fifty thousand dollar refunded. Tempt at Trump golf club. I'm just telling you. That petty things like this can in fact because they have been prime movers. And matters of great intrigue in Washington. Imagine a guy upset the get the FBI gig from Nixon when nouveau quits decides to become deep throat start throwing a bunch of bombs at Nixon via Woodward and Bernstein. Now, let me go back to. Another point I want to make about about Muller watched again when I got home last night. Without the presence of timely pressure. Watching Muller at eleven o'clock yesterday, got to watch it digest do a whole bunch of stuff. Get ready to talk about an hour later. I went home yesterday. Looked at it without any kind of pressure attached to it. And obviously had a little more time to start. Stop it replay various things that caused red flags and basically sort it. And when I did that I could not get over how many things Muller said that just sounded weird. And bizarre legally, for instance, everybody knows this because it's been trumpeted out there, since this happened Muller said and he gave the impression that the only reason he didn't indict Trump is because you can't indict a sitting president because of the office of legal counsel guidelines, which, again in nineteen seventy nine say you cannot indict sitting president, let me tell you the reason for that nothing sidetracked here, but the region can't is that if you can indict sitting president, all you would need is a renegade lawyer from the opposition party filing a lawsuit, or filing any kind of dive. You can stop the president called you can shut him down. This is the reason for it, and because there's a constitutional remedy for an out of control president, call impeachment. So there's. It's, it's not because we have a caring, it's not because we have somebody who's above the law, you'll get indicted president. You can't even indicting seal it for after he leaves office, if you want to take legal action, you gotta wait Elise out of office, or you have to impeach. But it's not because we treat the president as a king, a lot of people making the mistaken, the sump Shen. That the office of legal counsel says you can't indict the president because you can die the king. It's not that it's so that you cannot paralyse, the duly elected, president of the United States, using the legal system, as a political weapon, pure and simple. Well, what the hell are they doing? They're trying to turn the legal system into a political weapon to stop Trump and to get rid of him. Now back to what Muller said he said he didn't indict Trump because you cannot indicted sitting president because of the oil guidelines, and because it would be unconstitutional. And he left the impression if I could I want if I could have creamed this guy, but I I the guidelines the constitution and yet. And yet Muller left it up to the attorney general to determine whether there had been obstruction of just remember mother would not come to a conclusion in the report. He claimed there is no collusion, but when on instruction, he would not come to a conclusion I left it up to bar. What wait a minute? Wooden bar. Be under the same old LC guidelines, and constitutional restraints Muller can't indict. A sitting president, how the hell could the attorney general? So why leave it up to bar? In the report, it's clearly stated that we can't we make no finding here on conclusion on obstruction. But the point was made. We're not saying the president didn't do it. We're just saying that the evidence is inconclusive and insufficient. And what have you relieving enough to the attorney general looks at it as I see? No evidence of obstruction. Here in Robin running. Widely that up to anybody can't anyway. Also, as we noted yesterday Muller said that it would not be fair. Fairness was a big deal to Robert J Muller, three said it would not be fair to indict Trump since Trump couldn't have trial. Trump would not be able to take the occasion of a trial to prove his innocence. Or to establish in its refute charges. Wouldn't be wouldn't be thirty. If even if I could I wouldn't because the wouldn't have a trial wouldn't have a chance to review. But wait. Muller, indicted. A bunch of Russians knowing they would never have a trial. In fact, that's why he indicted him. Russian troll farms of the indicted, he knew that they were never going to come to court. He knew that Putin would never extradites indicts, these guys, he doesn't care, whether they are treated fairly. Robert J Muller third is perfectly fine with everybody thinking the Russians did it. Go ahead. Russians did it. I indicted them they're guilty. But Mr. Muller, they're not going to get their day in court because the Russians aren't going to aren't going to aren't going to extradite them. My point. Is it didn't stop him from indicting the Russians this so-called fairness business. He couldn't care less, whether they got their day in court. In fact, he knew they weren't going to come to court. So he could charge them with anything. He to charge them with obscuring, the name USS. John McCain on the battleship over there in Japan and the Russians would not come to court to defend themselves because they were never going to be extradited. So where is his concern for their Russians? And then and then mother went out of his way to say the Russians were innocent until proven guilty. He's let everybody understand here. These indictments do not represent. He wanted to make sure everybody knew the Russians were innocent until proven guilty. But he said practically the opposite about the president of the United States. When it comes to the president of the United States, he said, just because we haven't found any evidence the weekend, indict doesn't mean the president didn't do it. And that's where he clearly stood. The presumption of innocence on its head and took it away from Donald Trump. While anointing the Russians with it. I'll tell you Trump must be a stable genius. He's able to collude with the Russians then prevent the F B I N Robert Muller from investigating him in finding out about it Muller and his nineteen lawyers, fifty FBI agents and five hundred witnesses could not find a single crime. And yet. They are convinced Trump. In fact, I don't even think this is the model report. This is the Weisman dossier. What we ought to call this damn thing. Also yesterday. I made a point of pointing out, ladies and gentlemen, that the media was gonna run with this disparity between bar and Muller over why Muller didn't indict grab sound bite number three. This is the attorney general under oath, folks. He's the Senate Judiciary committee on may first here is a portion of his testimony under all mother stated three times to us in that meeting in response to our questioning that he emphatically was not saying that, but for the oh, L C opinion he would have found obstruction. He said that in the future the facts of a case against the president might be such that a special counsel would recommend abandoning the O L C opinion. But this is not such a case. Let me let me translate us in parts for this is even bigger than what it sounds like Muller said. And this was the second occasion and Muller had witnesses he had. Rosenstein because they. There's our bars Lieutenant in the meeting with him. When Muller presents his findings and what bar is saying here that Muller was asked three different times. If the office of legal council guidelines on not indicting, sitting president had anything to do with Muller, not finding evidence of obstruction and Barr says that Muller said three different times, zip zero NADA at nothing to do with the office of legal council guidelines on not indicting. President nothing to do with the fact that I find no evidence to charge obstruction. But to add to that. Are says that Muller told him and his people that there may be a case someday. Where the president is in such gross violation of the law that you have doing nor the O L, C guidelines and go ahead and indict because it's so outrageous, but that's not the case here with President Trump. So that's bar said it twice yesterday. Muller. Shows up and contradicts that as bigly as largely as can be. Disagreed with. And did. So this is what I think, is, is, is bar is Muller going rogue. He contradicted bar as big as you can't he. When I say, the only reason we didn't indict, the only reason is because the LT guidelines. If the president didn't do it. We would have said, so. So somebody here is lying, and this is not a small lie. It's not a misunderstanding live. This is a huge disagreement. And bars out there in Alaska, while this is all happening. This was a political press conference yesterday. We all know that this was, I think I'm gonna break your folks because the time just keeps rambling..

"It was equally as contentious in London as the uncertainty continues over Brexit. This morning's question time with the prime minister minister Scotland today on meeting the first minister of Wales today, but the gentleman says to meet with the position I'm happy to meet with members across this house to discuss the Brexit issue. But I think saying that the leader field position to ensure that we leave the European Union with the deal, whereas it goes. Gentlemen, is he's just said has a policy provoking Article V day that means not leaving the European Union a tool the stories shaping Washington today all ahead on C span radio and we begin with action this morning by the House Judiciary committee voting to authorize a subpoena that would potentially compel the Justice department handover special counsel, Robert Muller's full report to congress in a party line vote. The committee twenty four to seventeen voting to approve a resolution authorizing subpoenas for the mullahs report including any attachments, and any other relevant material. Now, the resolution also authorizes the committee's democratic chairman to subpoena testimony related to the special counsel report. Your congressman Jerry Nadler is the committee chair. In late nineteen Seventy-three. The Nixon administration had an idea when special counsel Archibald Cox asked the White House to turn over recordings of conversations held in the Oval Office, president Nixon offered instead to provide the tapes the Senator John status of Mississippi. Vixen propose that Stennis who was famously hard of hearing with listen to the recordings himself, then provide summaries of the tapes to the special prosecutor, the Nixon administration justified the proposal as a means to protect sensitive information that would not ordinarily be made part of the record in hindsight. Of course, we know the president Nixon had ulterior motives in any event. Cox had a job to do that job required him to evaluate the full record for himself, and he refused. The president's offer president Nixon or him fired the next day. The dynamics of the Stennis compromise became known. It should sound familiar to us. The Trump administration has an idea they want to redact the mullahs report before they provided to congress. The department of Justice says the proposal is a means to protect sensitive information that would not necessarily be made part of the record. But we have reason to suspect this administration's motives, the Mola report probably isn't the quo. Total exoneration unquote, the president claims to be and then any event the committee has a job to do the constitution charges. Congress with holding the president accountable for alleged official misconduct. That job requires us to evaluate the evidence for ourselves, not the attorney general's summary, not a substantially redacted synopsis, but the full report and the underlying evidence. Eternity. General proposes to redact four categories of information. From the mother report grand jury information classified information information related to ungoing prosecutions, and quote information that may unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interest of peripheral third parties close, quote, the department is wrong to try to withhold that information from this committee, Congress's entitled to all the evidence is this is just my opinion. It is also a matter of law and during today's House Judiciary committee hearing Charon by Jerry, Nadler, democrat of New York, the chairman said that he would give attorney general William bar time to produce the final unredacted report to congress before issuing the subpoena. However, he did not provide a timeline on when that would happen. Congressman Doug Collins of Georgia is the ranking Republican on the committee. He called today's vote quote, reckless. He also argued that the committee has asked. The attorney general to violate federal law. So the message is clear. Here's what's happening. If you go operate with us committee. You will get a subpoena if you ignore it Democrats will return the favor this things like a counter intuitive way to conduct oversight. But it does how remember the acting attorney general Mr. Whittaker who agreed to come redesign here. And was yet rewarded with a subpoena? L by the way before he ever got. Here we came we just do away with a Spain. I'm not sure the purpose of the subpoena with this majority is seems to be we want to use it because it sounds good. But yet when he comes down, and we don't want to and now we're back at it again because this is all preemptive. Five of the people who've been actually listed in this to paint today have been cooperating or have given a vice to this committee, but have never really been followed up, and what they said is we're helping but you're now getting us a subpoena and as far as the attorney general's go. He said, I'm giving you the Muller port. I'm giving it to you as I should under regulations. But that's not enough undoubtedly that doesn't make enough press releases. So I guess what we do is. We put people's names on a press release. We tell them that we're going to subpoena them now, although they've actually already cooperated reminds me of what I'm having here. And I've made this comment many times. I respect chairman, but we disagree on this. And that's the way it will be. And that's the way we're going to have. But it reminds me of the old guys back in my hometown. When they wanted to go fishing and nothing was buying. It's like a big fishing trip. Go out nothing was body and one day, this guy just got tired of it instead of catching anything the way. You should he just reached in his back pocket pulls out a piece of dynamite? And throws it in the pond. I can't find anything. So I'm just going to boil up everything, and maybe something will come to the top. This committee is better than this. This committee can do this better. While we here today doing preemptive subpoenas because we're going to be out for a while. We're not going to be here. And we need to keep the the story rolling. The story rolling is there's some innuendo. There's some possibilities that maybe in this report. But we can't wait to see it. Unfortunately, what will happen. My friends is this Christmas will come again, they opened the president that they thought early nothing was there. Now, they're dined open. Another president at the end of the day. This president. And what the report of the molar conventions said was no collusion. They know. No obstruction. And when we understand that we move forward with that. If we can't get what we won't we'll try and try again, maybe that's the new thing that this committee the little trying to keep looking for something it says, I'll try and I'll try and I'll try, but at the end of the day, the presidency will the president economies still moving forward the regulations that we put in place or there, and at this point in time, the attorney general, although he is being smeared repeatedly is doing exactly what the regulation says. And for that, congratulations. Mr. attorney general you get a subpoena. You'll back with more in today's House Judiciary committee were joined on the phone from Capitol Hill with Natalie Andrews, congress reporter for the Wall Street Journal, I want to begin with House Republicans. We just heard from ranking member Doug Collins of Georgia, just how frustrated are they? Republicans are quickey frustrated today from the committee at times they said that Democrats were just doing or trying to have it hearing before spring break. Congress is set to go on recess. Not next week. But the week after for two weeks. Publicans were frustrated they wanna Democrats to wait for the redacted reports that attorney general Bill bar has said he will release and thinking somewhat Democrats to look at that to have seen it before issuing a subpoena before you cannot pen. So what does today's action mean for the attorney general what does this subpoena specifically do? They today they voted to authorize the subpoenas. So they haven't actually issued it it's sort of like putting a card in your back pocket and making it a little bit easier to maybe put some pressure on the attorney general to perhaps redact less or to be able to say, hey, you're going to send us what you can. But we can peanut the rest that's likely going to be held up in court. It would likely be fought. I talked to some democratic lawmakers today who is known that it could be a month long fight. If it were to go to court, some other names came up today in the committee, Don again, who's the former White House counsel, Steve Bannon, the president's former chief strategist hope Hicks, the former White House communications director, Ryan's pre-bus, the first White House chief of staff and any Donaldson who was an assistant to attorney on the can what does this mean for these individuals? This is something that. Jerry Nadler wanted to do in order to continue to look into obstruction? He also wanted to documentaries people may have typically given their attorney he wants to talk to them Republicans are upset because they say some of these people have already reached out and communicated with the committee. So putting a subpoena out there for them is overreach or not necessary. But I think that for Democrats it's a sign of trying to work on oversight, which they feel they've been tossed to do, and they really want to get these people to cooperate more details at wsJcom Natalie Andrews, she's on Capitol Hill this Wednesday. Thank you for being with us. Thank you also on the hill today. The Senate went nuclear Republicans pushing through a rule change that will significantly reduce the debate time for hundreds of presidential nominees. The final vote fifty one to forty eight Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell calling the executive calendar chaos. And during a party lunch said that if the rules did not change the drawn out political process will become the new norm. It now means that instead of up to thirty hours of debate for nominees. It will be reduced to two hours. Here's how the debate unfolded on the Senate floor we begin with Republican John Cornyn of Texas president over the last two years during the beginning of the since the beginning of the Trump administration. Our democrat colleagues brought our work to a crawl over judicial and executive branch nominees. It's as if they're frustration and surprise over the election of President Trump in the first place that they really couldn't quite get over it still haven't gotten over it yet. And the other way otherwise sought undermining administrations to deny the president the the staff necessary to populate the various executive branch agencies as well as the judiciary. And the way you do that in the Senate as you screen out the amount of time, it takes to confirm nominees that ordinarily would have been confirmed by consent, or by voice vote certainly not by taking three days or so at a time to generate a confirmation. It's not because he's nominees are unqualified or even controversial. It's simply because this is how the resistance operates at a time. When President Trump is president of the United States these nominees being used as a weapon to slow the work of the Senate and really denies the floor time to do other things that we might be doing that would be beneficial to the American people and they've been running this play repeatedly over the last two years. In February of two thousand eighteen President Trump nominated John rider to serve as the on the board of the Tennessee valley authority. The work of the TV is denied important, but this is sort of high profile job at typically leads to a contentious nomination. In fact, these board positions are normally confirmed by voice vote.

The godfather of Alexey was Timothy Leary, and he was also called as a witness Leary was a clinical psychologist at Harvard who grew frustrated with his own complacency describing himself as a middle class liberal intellectual robot in the early sixties.

Roger Ailes is out the man who created conservative leaning, Fox News was forced out over allegations of sexual harassment. The new documentary divide and conquer rewind back from that day. And traces the lead up to his firing by telling the story of Roger Ailes life growing up in Warren, Ohio. Roger Ailes was interested in politics from a young age. He became a powerful figure in Republican campaigns with a track record of big wins for the candidates. He worked for from Richard Nixon to Mitch. Mcconnell after launching Fox News in nineteen Ninety-six. He turned it into the most watched network in cable news, Alexis bloom is the director of divide and conquer the Roger Ailes story. Which is also partly the story of Fox News itself. He is FOX and FOX's Rojas. So we did do a film about FOX. But only in so far as it was connected to Raja we have to keep on coming back to that central notion of it's a film about Roja. And he encompasses a lot sexual harassment sexual abuse politics smalltown America, you know, hemophilia all of these things in this great bake sort of coaching retail hemophilia is something that he had since he was essentially born I think he was diagnosed when he was like four years old abbey hemophilia and ultimately actually killed him.

That he said several times, you know, I'm never gonna make hits poss- my twenty s that he felt like he was walking around with a ticking time bomb and people who knew him well said that instead of making him more cautious. It made him more reckless. And that's actually not an uncommon thing with people who has kind of mortal diseases that they live recklessly that like every day is that last let's just go for it. Roger Ailes was working in television on the Mike Douglas show when president Nixon who is not president Nixon at that point came to visit Mike Douglas, Roger Ailes cornered him, basically in his office and pitched himself as his media adviser. Why was that meeting so important what Roger Ailes was going to do not only in politics, but also in broadcast journalism. Well, it gave him his leg up. You know, that gave him his leg into politics. It put him in that sort of unique position where he was mediating. Between the candidate and between the political world and between the broadcast world, and he developed a very nuanced understanding of both good evening.

"Well, the story begins. When j Hoover does six weeks before the Watergate break. President Nixon moved to a point his own students to run the FBI and the F B I rank and file who were on the Watergate case resisted every attempt, and there were continuous attempts by Nixon and his henchmen in the FBI and the Justice department to obstruct the investigation. It was the FBI that finally brought Nixon to Justice. Every I would say decade or so give or take a few years. We see this happening again with Ronald Reagan during the Iran, contra affair. Some years later with Bill Clinton and his lying under oath to protect the secrets of his sex life with President George W Bush and his illegal eavesdropping on Americans. And it was then in two thousand and four the Robert Muller the head of the FBI and his immediate superior, James Komi. The deputy attorney general went to the president and said you have to bring this program of spying on Americans within the Ambit of the law or we will resign in protest Bush back down. Now, we see Muller investigating the president and his star witnesses James Comey. So okay, sort of expound on that many of them, you know, engage during the Bush controversies, you just saying, and you said Bush back down, what is giving give us a sense of Komi, and the others and Molla how many all the around him that might also say, no, you know, we're all going to stand in this together. Well, how are the others all sort of standing toll still if they are? The key fact here is that Trump can't fire the FBI, even if somehow he subverts Robert Muller as investigator the FBI will carry on. They will gather evidence. They will submit it to the United States attorneys and federal prosecutors in Washington DC in Virginia and here in New York. They can't be stopped. Do you see any parallels? I mean surf me what president Nixon did the Saturday night massacre. I mean, all of that stuff. Was so utterly agree. Gis? I mean, it's not the same with Donald Trump is it it's not as full-frontal assaulting. Well, we've seen repeatedly that history has no meaning to Trump. President has no meaning to Trump. He lives in the moment. He laws for sport. But this week. We are seeing Trump the h-have like a cornered animal. He's lashing out in fury. And I believe in fear because he feels the hot breath of Muller's bloodhounds closing in on him. Tim, do you think that's because of this business of having to to give written onces? Do you think because that's actually happening now? I believe that is the case. Everybody remembers and everybody brings out this exchange between President Trump and less to hold of.

"Special counsel is a very smart man, and he has anticipated all of these actions, I'm certain that the attorneys will go to court much like they did with the Watergate situation when president Nixon attempted to. Take all of the documentation and bring it under his control. They will go to the courts to make sure that that documentation that evidence is held appropriately. So there are steps that could be taken the steps that the House Democrats can take to subpoena social council Muller, if he is in fact removed from office, there is ways that we can make sure there's proper funding. So I'm confident that even though Mr. Whittaker who is now the acting attorney general may in fact, be there under unconstitutional grounds because under article two section two as you pointed out earlier in your show really requires the advice and consent by the Senate for any principal officer. And he is certainly a principal officer being defined as someone who is only directly responsible to the president our viewers may not know something about. About you. And I think I'm correct that you have the unusual distinction of having the most bullet wounds of any member of congress. And here's why an event in our history the year after I graduated from high school nine thousand nine hundred seventy eight called Jonestown its lasting effect in our culture..

But the the real worsed one for me was when I heard Lyndon Johnson on the radio say, I will not accept and I will not put my name in.
