A Super Bowl during the covert 19 era is gonna look different. We want to see as many fans in the stands, but doctors say the attendance at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa is not what's worrying them.

Britain will boom beyond breakfast global aftershocks after that vote in britain and for so many around the world a stunning result deciding to leave the european union. To go it alone. The united kingdom anti-european lenient together barreling towards the end of the year without a comprehensive deal on how their relationship is going to be working as of january.

Negotiators finally reached agreement this afternoon with just a week to go before the deadline ends low.

Boris johnson. say there's not much to be happy about. The loss of seamless access to the world's largest single trading bloc is bound to lead to declining exports and foreign investment in the uk all while brain-drain sucks human talent out of the united kingdom impacting every aspect of british life critics argue that the isolation area british mindset and continuing uncertainty about the ultimate terms within which britain will be able to trade with europe is the opposite of what the world needs to tackle the challenges of a post covid nineteen global reality. Here's the leader of the british labour. Party let me be absolutely clear. Say directly to the government up against not deal. We accept this deal but the consequences of it are yours. You'll also we will hold you to account for it. Brexit supporters are much more optimistic. They argue that regaining control of british sovereignty including national laws and regulations trade and international borders will lead to a surge in economic activity in the post brexit era britain free to the stifling bureaucracy and sclerotic economic realities of present-day europe can and will return to its roots as one of the world's great trading nations for me the economic vision of brexit. Well number one. It was global. Because you'd let let's face it. The euro-zone is only fifteen percent of the world's gdp and it goes down one percent every as the future but trade is going to be outside europe. I think we can legislate smarter and besser and made this country bomber competitive on this installment of the munk debates. We challenged the essence of these arguments by debating. The motion be resolved. Britain will boom beyond brexit. Speaking for the motion is patrick. Men for professor of applied economics at cardiff university. In wales and chair of economists for free trade. He's a former adviser to prime minister margaret thatcher arguing against the motions in golden former vice president of the world bank advisor to nelson mandela and a professor at oxford university. He's the author of many important books on globalization including the recently published terra incognita one hundred maps to survive the next one hundred years patrick. In welcome to the munk debates. It's a pleasure to be with you president to join you. I'm really looking forward to today's conversation debate with you. Both i mean this is not just a topical issue this week. It is the combination now of a multi year process for the united kingdom to leave the european community This is happening. It's happening now. It has big For the uk it has big ramifications for globalization. And how we kind of think about the future of prosperity and economic trade in a world that is coping now with the aftershocks of the covid nineteen pandemic. Have both of you here to provide your considered opinions. Your analysis insights is a is a real privilege for our listening audience our motion. Today's simple one. It's be it. Resolved britain will boom beyond brexit. Patrick you're speaking in favor of the motion. So i'm gonna put two minutes on the clock for your opening remarks. Take us away. Thank you a. rod yes. I think that britain is going to do well from brexit. Let me just put a bit of background. First of all across the was a political incompatibility. Really between the aims of the eu. That we bahrain which was to go towards a federal union. And i think it was really more in sorrow than anger. The uk decided finally to to leave because of this great incompatibility politically also incompatibilities economically. Which i'm going to focus on now because we're talking about the future and how the economy will do so having now reached a trade agreement would be you which is very welcome. We now look forward. I think in the uk to signing free trade agreements around the world and getting away from what i see as damaging eu protectionism while of. It's kind of two main industries manufacturing on agriculture which has never really been in the interest of the uk which has interest in in well trade trade across nearly sixty percent of our trade is with the non a you rest of the world that will bring prices down to competitive levels weld competitive levels as we get rid of the barriers against the rest of the world. Then it'll raise productivity in our economy as we move into areas where we have a comparative advantage so those changes will be very beneficial to the economy according to the models of high been estimating pursuing so. That's the fast big almonds on the second big element on regulation. Where for a long time. That has been quite a lot of dissatisfaction. Britain with regulative methods and approaches of the eu. And so. we're really looking forward to moving towards our own free market. Style of regulation in areas like the labor market the city energy and generally innovation where the eu is pursued a very precautionary approach which is damaging to innovation in my view and other brexit tiers. So that's the kind of second major area and then the other two areas that kind of well understood really we we want to control up the migration make sure that we have a skill biased immigration policy. Which is what the government's committed to and also goes stop paying large amounts of money to the eu for boundary aims. That we really don't have an interest in it will by i think stimulating economies through free trade and better regulation lead to more revenues available to the treasury. So that's i think. The prospect ahead of us post brexit and in which post kobe to we can use the government's new-found policies to stimulate.

"Have got to go. Bye, darling. Of you. You know, in the clip that we heard it's very funny, but it also gets to something real, which is that you know, parents want to be able to speak openly with their teenage Children about sexuality. About what to expect with it, and you know, to kind of guide them in some way at the same time. A lot of people today came from more repressive environments where you didn't talk about sex and parents like wanted to be more open about it. But there was that line between being open and being intrusive between being open and just like Totally, You know, embarrassing your teenage child. And I know you have Children. I don't think they're teenagers yet, But is this something you found yourself thinking about a lot? I have three Children and two of them are teenagers. 12 and 14 boys onboard did consider it very, very carefully before taking on this part and One of the things that I was afraid of, was that you know they were just starting in a new school, and I was worried that It would affect them negatively Toe have a mom who was on a show that was so explicitly about things related to sex. And actually, I'm particularly at that time if it didn't do well, you know if it didn't turn out as I was hoping it would turn out, But I think because the show Has so much heart. And because it's the show is is so diverse. It's so freeing it's allowing ah, freedom of conversation that that has not been seen before in television. And has been embraced so passionately by a lot different ages from parents and Children like it, So it actually went a long way towards I think Bringing my Children closer to me. In a sense of feeling that it was something that they could that it was cool for the first time that I was involved in, and they swore to me that they haven't seen it. And I'm pretending that I believe them. I think that I'm not Jean. I think that I'm surely no, I definitely have better boundaries and gene, but I think I'm surely not as as awkward and is intrusive and does blatantly embarrassing. And yet, I find myself, you know, trying to have conversations with them or asking questions about, you know, under armpit hair that I haven't yet seen. And can I see it at the dinner table? It comes out of your mouth before you, You know, you realize what you're doing, and if he's here And so I think we all struggle with that. Even if we think that, you know, we're called parents or parents are cringe worthy. Gillian Anderson has been a pleasure to talk with you. Thank you so much, and congratulations on the crown.

"So i've got to be honest with you talking about money. This way feels weird and totally unnatural to me. The decades of looking at the government like a household budget isn't just a canadian thing right remember how. Uk prime minister margaret thatcher talked about the deficit. Let us never forget this fundamental truth. The state has no source of money other than the money. People earned themselves. You don't grow richer by bulging another check book from the bank. Someone has to add up the figures every business has to do it. Every housewife has to do what about. Us president ronald reagan. Can you imagine if a head of household or a business were forced to spend every dime that was budgeted even if savings were available. Well that's the situation. The president is in now so it's no wonder that ignoring the deficit and creating money. Seems like a total break from reality. And you know what i asked about. This and she says she understands canadians. Fears about our current spending at one point in my life. All of that stuff would have scared me too. So i understand it as someone who's experienced the kind of concern that many people have when they hear us very big numbers and attach words like deficit and debt to those numbers. And then tell us that. In fact what the government is doing is putting the rest of us on the hook Somehow gonna mean that our lives are going to be harder in the future because of what the government is doing so when you hear that kind of stuff yeah. It's it's enough to scare anyone right and it's so unfortunate because there's enough in the world happening today to be worried about without layering on a bunch of additional concerns that.

"Where off her actions and how they relate to Other women in her universe than Potentially Margaret Thatcher was, for instance. Well, I appreciate that. And just one more question before you go now, you know, we were talking to Claire Foy when she started on the crown, and we talked a little bit about how the queen was sort of this unknowable person to her, and then She developed a great empathy for the queen through playing her. And you know, we were talking earlier about the complexity of playing someone like market Thatcher and how polarizing she was just too some I wonder if you could relate to that did play Margaret Thatcher perhaps give you more empathy for who she was as a person. I'm not sure if empathy is the right word. I would probably say and understanding for how she became the woman that she became She she was a self made woman. She she grew up in a very frugal household, and her father was a no alderman, And she helped in the Hay was a grocer, and she was a grocer's daughter, and she helped Shop, and and so she, um On. They were incredibly religious. It was a Methodist household. And so when, when you understand all of that, it's easier to understand where she's come from and how she got to the world that she created for herself. And so I think it's just it's understanding. It's not that it's not necessarily compassion. It's not necessarily empathy. I think you can understand how she became who she became Andre yet Still, you know, disagree with a lot of the things that she might have done, and yet at the same time, be impressed by her brain or her work ethic or the fact that she was a woman of stature at that particular time, so Yeah, she's she's She's complicated, and I think it's important to that The Syrians embraces All of her complexities well, and as it does throughout the whole series, Gillian Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. Gillian Anderson plays former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the upcoming season of the Crown. Season. Four premieres Friday, November 15th on Netflix..

"Is seals the outside of the meat, so that when you then cook it through, you don't lose all the juices and the moistness and the tenderness. That you would lose if you cooked at high temperature of the whole time. So the idea was syrup, ease of meat at a very high temperature than turn the temperature down and let it cook through. And it turns out that was not true. And that was actually shown many, many decades before I was writing about about cooking. I just discovered that information and related to the food world. And what I've heard from chefs in particular is that they had all been taught. This is now in the eighties and nineties by their mentors, all of them professional chefs taught in the old fashioned apprentice. Master apprentice way That's hearing me Does Helan juices that that was just so when one of the foundational ideas of meat cooking in particularly continental restaurants And so what? They told me was that to find out that that was not true. Didn't just mean that they now had better control over cooking meat. It meant that they realized that everything that they did in the kitchen Had to be questioned. They couldn't rely on the master chef for Accurate information on every last little subject that they had to think for themselves. They had to do their own experiments to make sure that what they were being taught or what they'd heard through the grapevine was actually true. So it did change their way of thinking and I think that's that's something that I'm very happy about. Harold McGee. Thank you so much for coming back to our show.

I I, feel like best in show was so spectacular that that's the I just kept thinking. It was going to be the same as that and when it was even slightly less than that I was very disappointed I don't disagree with you and I remember I I've told the story before and I will never ever who the actor was but Danielle I saw a mighty wind on the Friday that it opened at the sunset five. Sunset and crescent and movie ended and I forget who was a famous actor and we all got into the elevator because God.

On the cutting edge of climate, research, and the predictions have now been realized they were remarkably accurate, and what about Global Sea ice? You say they primarily focused on temperature, but as the years have gone by today's measurements, compared to predictions made in the last thirty years on Arctic Sea ice.

She studied science Oxford University. She didn't need much convincing. There was a serious risk that that had to be face. She persuaded her Cabinet to put up the money. Will the Hadley Centre and she actually was there at the opening in her speech for the inauguration. She said they would be serious consequences of greenhouse gas emissions, and she said what they send to predict will affect at daily lives, governments and international organizations in every part of the weld, going to have to sit up and take notice and respond. How have the global climate predictions from the Hadley Centre from thirty years ago been received by you know both supporters and skeptics in the UK for the most part Britain does no cap, such a strong climate, skeptic movement as the US, and so there is widespread agreement in parliament in the public. Really. Serious action needs to be taken and I think highly sense the mets office. have a a part of the reason for that, because the very well respected it's, it's quite a conservative institution that these radical people they account so between bureaucrats and scientists. Very careful about the conduct predictions they make. And I think that has helped to convince a widespread of society that something needs to be

"We begin with Nick Rowley. Who's also saddened by the death of a great public servant and friend who died in April so John Houten who pioneered the understanding of climate science and led the IPCC. Nick rarely was former advisor to the British prime minister. Tony Blair. He may not be as well known as David Attenborough. Greta Tourne or Tim Flannery but his contribution both our understanding of the climate system and helping establish the institutions and decisions required to reduce the risk of human induced. Climate change is beyond compare and unassuming deeply religious and humble man. Jones was a trudy glittering Korea winning a scholarship to Oxford at the tender age of Sixteen Joan went on to become professor of atmospheric physics there through the nineteen sixties and Seventies. He built up a powerful research group at the university. Developing new techniques for remote sensing the atmosphere's temperature structure and composition. This groundbreaking work gained the attention of NASA with his team. Developing the instruments to establish space-based weather monitoring flown on the Nimbus satellites in the nineteen seventies. This work enabled detailed studies of the structure and dynamics of the ozone layer and ability to measure and model the radiative transfer of the earth and understanding of the dynamics of the stratosphere eighty-three that John Really came into his element as head of the UK metrological office. He developed his strong interest in climate science. During this time Joan was part of a small group including the diplomats crispin to kill and the scientists and environmental writer. James Lovelock who held a series of briefings within Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the risk posed. By what was then called the greenhouse effect in September nineteen thousand nine hundred fetch gave the first speech by any head of state on climate change informed by meetings involving John Her Royal Society speech at Fishmongers Hall in London I set out the importance of basic science informing policy and then turn to the threat posed by climate change and what she called and unwittingly massive experiment with the system of this planet itself in April nineteen thousand nine. The Prime Minister then held a daylong seminar on the subject with a full cabinet. A Downing Street. Unlike so many of today's political class having studied Chemistry University Margaret Thatcher was a leader at ease with signs who thrived on understanding arguments and the facts on December eighth nineteen thousand nine came as seminal speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York years before vicious climate events such as the European heat wave of two thousand and three or Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans in two thousand and five. This was a fantastic speech. There is no better example of the political foresight and leadership required to respond to what scientific expertise revealed and her placing the issue squarely on. The international agenda was Abeille supported by John. Thatcher was convinced that the global warming hypothesis was clear and Britain had a responsibility to lead open by Thatcher in May nineteen ninety. John became the first director of the Headley Center for climate prediction and research. Soon as the world center of scientific excellence in the collation and interpretation of global atmospheric data by this time he was also a key member of the newly established intergovernmental panel on Climate Change. Joan was chair or co chair of the IPC scientific assessment working group until two thousand and two and the lead editor of the first three IPC reports. There is always another major report to read on climate change but I would encourage anyone with an interest to go back and read the executive summary of that first assessment report released in Nineteen Ninety. Thirty years have now passed. Sadly measurements revealed that over those thirty years. The atmosphere has been warming at a rate between the higher and middle predictions. And if the world doesn't redouble efforts to reduce emissions at scale we measure take tree to around four degrees of warming by the end of the century a truly dystopia prospect in two thousand seven on behalf of the panel except to the Nobel Peace Prize that was shared by the IPC and former US Vice President Al Gore just prior to this for two years. I was fortunate to work at Downing Street. Advising tiny Bleh on sustainability and climate change. This was before Hurricane Katrina before Al Gore's documentary an inconvenient truth with the UK having the presidency in two thousand and five Blair was also convinced that climate change was both real and required an urgent response like his conservative predecessor. Tony Blair too was eager to present the case.

Queen approves request to suspend Parliament but what does this mean for Brexit?
"And a joining us here in Washington is now Gardner senior fellow at the heritage foundation and also a former adviser to prime minister Margaret Thatcher and now that he could explain exactly what the prime minister did today well for the prime minister requested to to the queen that she had to clear the suspension or pro rotation all parliament in the United Kingdom for appeared all four to five weeks and what this means in terms of the big the big picture is that it is now far less likely that parliament will be able to block what is known as a new deal brexit and it is a very big move by by the prime minister Boris Johnson very bold Kelsey move it has taken many people by surprise in in London and is a clear signal of intent from the prime minister that he is one hundred percent committed to moving forward with brexit on October thirty first deal or no deal but it's important to bear in mind that the suspension of parliament is not unprecedented that have happened in the past and this is mostly a constitutional crisis of some critics all saying the Sony within the the power of the prime minister to seek the pro rotation all person's palm the third that is not the first time it's happened it's been used before and I think that so any Boris Johnson will be feeling more confident now I think you can the the likelihood of brexit happening on October thirty first which is off rule the the will of the British people the particular votive Apraksin twenty sixteen told someone to deliver that a promise on the pledge to the Briton's lotus and it now Gardner is you assess the reaction in Great Britain the head of the labor party Jeremy Corbyn calling this quote a threat to our democracy John Brcko who is the house of Commons speaker calling it a constitutional outrage how do you respond to that yes on is being very fierce opposition from some quarters in parliament especially from the opposition Labour Party but also from the the speaker of the house of Commons tone of Brcko who in one of one on one time was actually conservative but I have to say either the pollen it really will be powerless in my view to to block a new deal brexit unless of parliament is able to bring down the conservative government in a no confidence vote they have one week to do that which begins on Monday next week I think it's unlikely the parliament will have the the votes to to do that and I expect that actually killed from will will succeed it is a rule goal which is to move forward with the brexit agenda but without a doubt I mean they're all a lot of angry voices in parliament and and the speaker of the house of Commons John Burke who is a very all didn't anti brexit campaigner he certainly is going to be one of the most vocal opponents of the suspension of parliament which also cool Scott cut down his own authority as speaker so naturally Mr Brcko is very upset about the developer or talking with now Gardner of the heritage foundation and we should point out this is something that you predicted in one of the conversations we had earlier this summer in terms of the time line if prime minister Johnson in fact was elected by the conservatives to head up the party so walk us through the new deadline October thirty first with parliament coming back in mid October give us a sense of what will happen during that two week period yes Sir on October fourteenth the the conservative government will outline what is known as the end of the queen's speech outlining their agenda and following that there will be a meeting of the European Union helpful October seventeenth to eighteenth where person will seek a new deal with the European Union to withdraw from the E. U. and if a deal is agreed and parliament well I should debate the new with full agreement on October twenty first twenty second and it has to be said of course that is a big question mark whether or not the you will agree to a new agreement that is acceptable to the British government my own sense is the person is heading towards what is known as a new deal brexit and I expect that that new deal brexit will will be implemented on October thirty first unless you're gonna see major concessions from the European Union and of course parliament has to prove when you eat you withhold deal on October twenty first on October twenty second say that there's a big question marks but I would say the policy is very very clear now that we are heading for a a British exit from the E. on October thirty first and most likely that is going to be a new deal exit where white person simply negotiable trade section with the European Union on the World Trade Organization term and I think that that is the most likely scenario now I think there's a very small child all of parliament stopping in new deal brexit but I'd say that that opportunity to parliament to block a new deal brexit is very very minimal right now and I think it's highly likely that we all get to see practical into October thirty first they should help Toba has a number of very big date starting with October the fourteenth the data the queen's speech and then you have the other European Union tells me don't have a seventeenth eighteenth and then parliament will debate the queen's speech and a potential with told agreement on October twenty first twenty second save a lot a lot of events happening in October and one final point we have touched on this in the past but one of the biggest stumbling blocks it continues to appear to be the issue between Northern Ireland which is part of the UK and the Republic of Ireland and trade along the border so explain what the issue is and why that has been so difficult yeah I'll say the big issue for the British government is what is what is called the northern on and backstop found the backstop is basically demanded Bonnie the the European Union order to prevent a heart border between north and on and on the Irish Republic well the backs of actually does is that it this person point into the E. U. customs union indefinitely which is unacceptable to the new British government off rule membership of the EU customs union would mean that Britain could not find the same free trade agreements including with United States and therefore Boris Johnson demanding that the backstop be removed altogether the British government is a is saying that there should be high technology solutions the border issue that there should be a complete removal of any kind of border control between the south and the north of Ireland and that and the backstop should also be removed altogether in order to free person from each house and even answer the British government in favor of any kind of upon border nor is the European Union for some kind of agreement can be reached to remove the backstop but also to ensure that there is no hard border between the north and south more details available online at heritage you dot org Nile gardener here in Washington thank you for being with us it's my pleasure thank you

memorable bull encounters she had along the way including one with former british prime minister margaret thatcher one of the highlights of my life 'em we were at american but still there's convention in miami there were six canadian women they were invited to have tea with her now she spoke to be americans about seven hundred at dinner but they didn't get to see whether or not only six but she was a consummate a politician she had something to say to each of from where we ain't politically it would have been a she talked a lot about the g six that was in canada in vancouver a would have been the time of the south african problems end he pounded her hand on the coffee table teacups roads issue that those men they never understood that those sanctions were hurting the very people they were trying to help and you just want it to be a fly on the wall all to hear how she interacted with some all the time and she talked about the war in argentina and 'em but i had to make that decision myself 'em and i made it the night they were british and we had to do it and she the most single minded short person i have ever met not necessarily agreed with all their politics but she was one of those people who when she walked into a room you know it could behind your back but you news dumping or or something hit on antidepressants just a huge presence yeah yeah sharon benard shock retired for her work at edmonton oldest independent bookstore audrey book book this week she was speaking with the cdc's adrian penn i there were lots of things to dislike about so called social media influencers they used a huge online platform to get rich by recommending often usual stuff for example there celebrations of an unattainable lifestyle and the fact that they made influencer on now if you run a business so it's hard to argue with their important unless you're show nikki owner of an ice cream truck in los angeles he's arguing more specifically he's charging them double ice cream mr nikki posted a sign announcing the new policy on his truck an online whereas you guessed it went viral we reached joe nikki in los angeles joe nikki what prompted you to your influencers pay double policy so we've been dealing with influencers a we've known about five and a half years and you're in there and getting increase in the last couple of years we've been getting them every week people either in nine us for a free party or come into the truck offering what they used the word of exposure a which is just obnoxious me but yeah easily once a week i won't name name but they will they'll come to the truck and they'll say hey jeff i don't know if you know me i'm blah blah blah they named their instagram handle on about fifty sixty thousand followers could you hook me up with an ice cream outposts about on my story on instagram last week we got a party for three hundred people requesting do a party for them first round bursary they said they were gonna be plenty of influencers there with up to ten million people of followers among those influencers and i said this is crazy and i made the stein said influencers pay double and i put it out at one of our thoughts on sunday which attract quite a hipster crowd and a i posted about it on instagram the next thing i know a one of her followers posted on reddit and it made it to the front page read it and then the last twenty four hours of them crazy you know we always hear that these influencers make a lot of money they do quite well for themselves in this line of work what do they need free ice cream for europe i wish i had the answer that question i probably we would've never find i do not understand why do you think it is about your truck your ice cream truck that has made it such a a target fruit for these kinds of pitches so we operate out of these vintage a nineteen sixty mr softy trucks they have a really cool looking aesthetic and we've created some of following an el aim on a tv and film set to a lot of a catering on that so i think people influencers in l eight are aware of are brand 'em and they're just want maybe a cool looking truck at their party as opposed to maybe a kind of run down ice cream truck you might see it a playground or something like that so yeah it's been going well so you don't need any help from these influencers okay i don't think so and i don't wanna sound like a jerk saying that because i mean of course any business would love to have some help but not once i realized that the influence wasn't a realistic thing where you couldn't basically purchase followers and they are these robots that will literally ad followers and likes and comments you're post which would make you look more popular which makes you more appealing apparently there's some people so they're totally abusing the system and i really feel for a small business owners that are new and just starting out that might feel obligated to do that because they don't wanna get any bad press 'cause they're still now so they're giving away stuff and exposure is going to these influence or these followers that don't even exist there just it just fake in my argument is why don't we make get more about the pace the product and service and deal with that versus the number on instagram profile what happened when you put up your influencers pay double signed a tide you're tracking how do people react a lot of people just like took pictures and laughed at it we got a couple of people i don't wanna judge but i'm guessing they may have been influencers because they looked at it kind of irritated and didn't say anything looking disgusted by the way the charge them device when they walk away actually thought left now if you were getting a lot of attention on social media a for your comments and your criticism about people who are trying to get attention on social media it's total ironing i totally understand it's hilarious 'em beyond irony are you are you china milk this yourself to get more business no i know these news stories will come and go pretty quickly so i'm just enjoying it now i love that were getting attention for people to understand last year about are business another existed don't know us but really i'm excited to kind of expose the fraudulent activity that's going on among these people that i really don't know what they do other than post photos so you're not just selling ice cream you're you're doing what you think it's a public service yeah i mean people that are are loyal followers the volunteers for five years they know i always posts about when we've we've got an influence her request i i blackout the names but we touch screen shots of the email request on on the site on people that want to take photos of the truck in exchange for parties and all that so it's an ongoing thing and it's fun to get to put out there and people know what's going on and they also can come in troy reisman which i think is great all right now before we let you go i gather you have some other big news today going on in your life where are you right now in what you doing this is absolutely crazy my wife is pregnant with a identical twins enter water broke today at four thirty in the morning a witch literally on the biggest day of my life where i business is well so it's just been a total whirlwind and china absorb all of it and i think i'm being

"Biden says that he received a phone call from the head of England prime minister, Margaret Thatcher. Who said she was worried about Donald Trump. The problem is Margaret Thatcher died in nineteen ninety. All that more triple eight nine seven one S eight triple eight nine seven one seven two four three Larry elder relief that comes to we're talking about the New York Times article admitting that the Obama administration deployed multiple spies against the Trump campaign. One of those members of the Trump campaign is George popadopoulos. He's explaining to Maria Boorda Romo, FOX business. Exactly what happened one of those individuals is this gentleman named Mifsud. Tell me about the people you met in Rome when you're still working for the London center of international law practice, which of course, reached out Lincoln to get this job, and you meet, and they convince you before you go to Trump got to go to Rome. Absolutely. And soon as I get there on basically greeted by the former talion foreign minister, Vincenzo Scotti, very high level. Talion officials who are -ffiliated with this university. I suspect likely be ICAO people there because. University. And you start having meetings with him. Tell me about Huish myths. So I'm introduced by the talian, former Taliban, foreign minister Scotty, and this company I worked for and basically is the overseas. Professor Bob Muller falsely characterized to the world as some sort of Russian cutout who was trying to conspire with me or collude with me and provide information that the Russians had. Now, he drops on you and one of the meetings. Yes after I meet him in mid March. So before my name is even public in the Washington Post, these people are introducing Josef Mifsud. So clearly there were some sort of is on me, even before my name was public. So he meets with me. We have some bizarre conversations moving forward about a potential meeting between Trump and Putin. He could never introduced me one substance in the Russian government's or anyone of substance in general and in late April. He lets me know that the George the Russians have Hillary Clinton's emails, and that's where you know, it was very suspicious of this person and actually facts and events preceding that moment and after were very bizarre. So he tells you Russia has emails Hillary Clinton's and this is the bomb that you feel was the whole reason if they wanted you to go to Rome to meet him because he they wanted him to tell you about these emails that Russia out of Hillary Clinton. Is that right? That's absolutely, correct. I think this person was some sort of plant. He's been outed recently living openly next to the US embassy in Rome, he's been pres being protected actually by Italian intelligence right now. And he's done listening for two years to go back and tell Trump about Russia having Clinton emails did you do that? Absolutely. Not that wasn't my job. You hear a lot of gossip in censoring things when you're in these circles, and the last thing I was going to do is go and talk to the campaign about somebody that I thought was legal. Now, what happens next is really interesting to me because over the course of the next four weeks. I you get the bomb thrown in your lap from this that he tells you Russia has Hillary Clinton's emails, you don't do anything with that information. But you think he's hoping you will. But in the next week in the next month. You get outreach from lots of different Intel people is that right? You you are contacted by US Intel officials British Intel officials Austria. Alien Intel officials spos- at all about. Oh, yeah. That's that's a great point. So actually, April fifteenth trillion government reached out to me for the first time, April twenty-sixth Joseph missile tells me this information may second. I have the British government reaching out to me from this man Tobias Ellwood who was a number two at the British ministry of foreign affairs, where he wants to have a conversation with me and get to know me a little bit may fourth. I'm contacted by two officials of the DIA at the US embassy in London named Gregory Baker and Terence Dudley. And then I meet on may tenth this. Australian diplomats Alexander Downer who I testified under under oath, the congress and told the FBI in Bob Muller that I felt he was spying on me and recording my conversation. So this is all what you believe is spying. Recording conversations early two thousand sixteen way, before there was any five warrant to actually get a warrant to spy on anybody. And then it w-. Was downer. The Australian Intel guy who really they got you with because Alexander Downer has a conversation with you. And you were asked by the FBI when did you first meet down? Are you tell them what we'll pick up that on the other end now ever since I started talking about rush tax resolution and all the money and sleep with nights. They've saved client..
