Trump Administration Imposes Deadline For TikTok To Be Sold

"Chinese company that owns tiktok is under a little bit of pressure from President Trump and is considering selling you the president says, he thinks tiktok is a threat to US security even given the company kind of deadline by set a date of around September fifteenth at which point is going to be out of business in the United States. Now, over the weekend president trump talked to the CEO of Microsoft, which is a potential buyer here NPR's tech reporter Bobby. Allen is with us this morning. Hi, Bobby Hey Rachel. So take a step. Back, Bobby, why does president trump have an interest in tick talks US operations in the first place? Well, trump never mentions TIKTOK without saying China to talks parent company. Bite dance is based in Beijing and trump says that means tiktok could be harvesting the private data of millions of Americans and sharing with the Chinese Communist Party now whether that's really happening is up for debate but trump, it's black or white right? It's took talks either stays chinese-owned and will be banned or the APP is bought by an American company like Microsoft and can stick around. Right. So No L. Mention this Microsoft CEO talk with President Trump over the weekend about the possibility of requiring Tiktok but that's rather remarkable. Right? Like why did the CEO of a private company feel the need to run this by the president right and that's because the trump administration including trade adviser Peter Navarro has been peering on Cable News and saying the White House does not trust Microsoft. And while it looks like right now that Microsoft has won back the confidence of the White House. The company just really wants to make sure absolutely has the blessing of the administration before trying to take Tiktok over and a big part of Microsoft's pledge is to ensure that no TIKTOK data ever leaves Americans shores. Yes to your question. The president getting intimately involved in a private company merger talks is not typical but talk right in APP known for dance challenges and Prank Videos. No last finding itself as the latest political football in Washington is dealing with just that. Can we close by talking about the business end of this like what's in it for Microsoft to buy Tiktok? What do they get out of this potential? So we hear the word Microsoft when we think of the company many people still think of windows, right? It's not exactly the hippest image in the world, but Microsoft does own xbox. It's one actually one of its most successful businesses and there's a lot of crossover potential between gamers and tiktok users not to mention bringing on tiktok would allow Microsoft to go toe to toe with facebook. Which sees talks huge popularity and is pretty envious.

Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing

Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing

"Michigan was one of the State's first at bat against a huge outbreak of corona virus. Michigan hit its peak in April reporting a high of more than eighteen hundred new cases on April. The third new cases remained above fifteen hundred for days that month Governor Gretchen whitmer declared a state of emergency by April first she closed all schools throughout the academic year hospitals were overrun even as workers faced layoffs and paycuts thousands. Of medical workers came down with the virus as they struggled to treat patients, and by the end of the month, the state ranked third for the highest number of coronavirus fatalities in the country Michigan struggled to bend the curve, but Michigan came through the curve bent. Now, the question is whether Michigan can stay out of the red zone and the state has seen a few smaller waves since the worst of it this spring, there was the outbreak last month that. Harper's bar the popular haunt for Michigan State University which reopened to an unexpectedly large crowd on June. The eighth local reporters found young patrons lining up less than six feet apart, and then packing the dance floor like they would on an ordinary non pandemic night. No masks to see in that picture state health officials later link that bar nearly two hundred new infections and today Michigan posted one of its higher totals of statewide new cases for the past couple of. Months and that's concerning especially because everywhere in the country right now, educators are trying to figure out how to get education going again it's basically every state and in some instances, every school district or even school for themselves at Michigan, State, in East Lansing, they're exploring a combination strategy that's going to be new to them, and that might be new for anyone else and it starts with a spit test developed at the university by neuroscience professor named Jack Lipton this man. The kit costs around three dollars a piece, and as you can see, it's pretty simple. You can do this in the privacy of your own apartment or dorm room you put your sample in the vial with the Little Barcode you seal it in the bag and Wallah your part is over the lab at Michigan State will take your sample and combine it with others in what is known as pool testing, which maybe you've heard about recently, the idea behind pulled testing is that it can help labs do more way more with weight less instead of having each person take their own. Separate test you pull the samples from a small number of people about a dozen and you run a single test on that pool of the pool turns up positive only then do you need each person in the pool to take a test but if the pool turns up negative, you're done the single test covered a dozen people in a place where you expect a lot of negatives. Pool testing is remarkably efficient at Michigan state. They're going to step further than that. Each volunteer who takes a spit test goes into separate pools of about ten or so people so think about it like. Two teams. You're Miami Dolphin and a Seattle Seahawk, or you're Houston rocket and in Minnesota Timber Wolves choose your metaphor. The point is if two pools come back with positive results, it can only mean one thing. The lab just finds the person who belongs to both pools using a handy grid like this one, and then recommends that that person get a follow up diagnostic test. It's like playing Bingo be six Bingo you might have corona virus. That's what Professor Lipton plans to do with samples from MSU volunteers testing two thousand of them every day and referring any apparent positives for an individual diagnostic test. Now, the third and most unusual part of this plan has to do with sewage scientists are discovering that they can spot a rising rotavirus cases early on by texting. Communities, Wastewater Michigan State, professor, Joan Rose and her team have been testing the campus wastewater. Since April she says, they noticed a peak in the virus that lined up with the news about an outbreak at a college hang out which demonstrated that there sewage diving expeditions worked I made that up I don't know if they're actually diving. For the testing this fall, the idea is to sample the wastewater from different places on campus so that they can get hyper local data if they can get good enough at sampling and turning around their result in a timely fashion, their work could act as an early alert system for Michigan State perhaps, even at the level of individual buildings. So you've got the pool testing with the affordable spit kits you've got expanded. Diagnostic testing. But literally just for those people who appear to be positive or just playing turn-up sick and then you've got the wastewater testing which increasingly looks like a functioning means of getting a warning in time to react if the plan works, it could help the university find and contain outbreaks. If it works the plan could help Michigan State and it's sixty seven thousand students stay on campus and have something like a semester. Joining us now is the aforementioned Dr Jack? Lipton. Of Translational Neuroscience at Michigan State University Dr Lipton. Thank you for being with us. We've heard about pool testing I want you to tell us a little more about it and why it it specifically helpful in this instance what what about Michigan State makes it a perfect candidate for the pooling of spit. What would you think about full testing end and Michigan state one of the things that you're that is really important to understand that the resources that we have is that university are fairly limited. Bright. But we're not a multinational corporation. So funds are limited resources are limited and pooling allows us to. have. More. More test being done with the same amount of resources or with less resources. So in this case, if we're dealing with supply chain issues with testing if we can test ten people with reagents that we would need to test one person, then we are were saving a lot in terms of of supplies, and if we don't have to run ten tests and we can run one test, we save a lot of time. So if you can save time and you can save supplies, you're going to Yeah. Ultimately conserve and that's really what our goal is and this. This works 'cause you're not expecting a large proportion of people to have this thing right. So generally speaking a bunch of these pools, we'll come out negative. Right. pools if you if you have about ten people in a pool in your expectation is maybe seeing two or three out of a hundred people. Show up positive than most of your pools are going to be negative. The more the prevalence increases the more the rates of infection increase. Then you're going to have more and more positive bulls. If one out of every ten people are positive than a pool of ten, most likely is going to have a positive individual in it. So you have to really balance pool size and prevalence together in order to come up with the right balance to save resources and save time. So the this actually could have broader implications There's a Wall Street Journal op-ed that you wrote about a previous test not this one that we're talking about, but it was a concept of pulling in you set across the United States tens of thousands of similar academic research labs have the expertise and equipment to help the country test for covid nineteen. If even one tenth of these labs joined the effort we could. Test an additional five, hundred thousand to one million samples a day. Your larger point here is that there are ways to get to more people and and then figure it out early rather than what we're in right now where there are some places where people are waiting in excess of seven days for typical test results in a in a concentrated environment like Michigan state you can. You can see things early and intervene. Absolutely and I think it's really important to note when you're talking about the pet that we put together. The vast amount of resources and know how that existed the academic laboratories universities across the country. Each one of the things that we've proposed was to develop biomedical National Guard and utilize all of these individual laboratories across the country and have them be organized through the federal government in order to be able to respond to pandemics or other natural disasters with biomedical know-how and that if we could get something like that done if the next administration is interested in doing something like that, we can be. Proactive instead of reactive in these kinds of situations. Wow. That's incredible because you just answer the question I was going to ask I was going to say, Hey, what can government do to take advantage of these kinds of resources and you just answer that I just want to say that again, a biomedical National Guard what a great simple idea resources all over the country run by different people but the the government of the United States providing the centralization for the data and the distribution. If you think about all of the laboratories and universities that were shut down as a result of the pandemic so many people were were sitting home like I sitting home on on zoom all day. If we have opportunity to come back into the laboratory and help. We can do so much in terms of trying to not only develop new new treatments and and working on new methods of detection, which is what our laboratory did during during April we can marshal all of these resources all. Know How that exists in order to to. Attack this problem in a concerted and coordinated way. Lifting. There's not a lot of great news about Krono virus, but I have to tell you after this conversation. I'm optimistic that there are people like you around this country who are actually in this moment while everything looks as grim as it is finding solutions that are going to help us see the other side of the coronavirus. Dr. Jack Lift Lipton is the chair and professor of translational neuro size. I don't even know what that is. We'll talk about that another time at Michigan State University. Thank you for all that you are doing and good luck to you at Michigan. State, we'll stay on top of this with you.

Seattle Mayor Believes Federal Deployments Are Part Of A Darker Political Goal

"Kinds of tensions in Seattle. Clashes between protesters and police turned violent last weekend, but Seattle's Democratic mayor, Jenny Durkin, told the Department of Homeland Security she did not want federal agents sent into her city. She later discovered a force was deployed and put on standby. Now they have left. Mayor Durkin spoke with our co host, Rachel Martin, about why she and other mayors feel these federal deployments. Part of a bigger, darker political goal. We have, like any other city. We have public safety challenges. But our public safety challenges have been made significantly worse by this president's actions in his words, the dinner in level of criminal activity. We're really deteriorated after the president started tweeting about it, and it was a subject to have Fox coverage every night. So we have seen and I've talked to mayors across the country the same thing when the president actually tweets, and it's not my words saying he's targeting death City is run by Democrats. He's openly admitted it and tweeted about it. Um And I think that that is really a chilling prospect of a president. United States, which is federal resource is for political purposes. The Department of Justice has said that there is an expansion happening right that all of this the deployment of federal agents to a variety of cities Now we're seeing Chicago Albuquerque, Kansas City now Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland. This is all part of so called Operation legend that this has to do with gun violence, quelling gun violence in these cities helping solve murders. This's the DOJ zone characteristic of what this operation is about. I guess I'm hoping you can clarify for me. Is this operation legend something that's happening? Adjacent, separate from from the agents that had been deployed to Portland. And for a couple of days, at least this standby force to Seattle. I actually think they're using it as camouflage. There are ongoing task force in major cities, the deal with gun violence and with gang violence and other violent crime. We had him in Seattle and I worked on him is U. S attorney I know I've spoken with the mayor of Chicago and Albuquerque, and they have a strong collaborative approach with federal law enforcement. It is very rare. If it all federal law enforcement will surge agents to a city to deal with public safety threats that are normally handled by city or state officials. Without talking to or working with local officials. You have described what President Trump is doing as being a political ploy to play his own base ahead of the election into some kind of law and order message. As as a former U. S attorney for the Western District of Washington is anything he's doing or the federal government at his behest illegal. I think it could be unconstitutional. Under the 11th Amendment. Remember, public safety is generally reserved to the states and to their cities, a subdivision of the states by our Constitution. There's also restrictions on the powers that federal law enforcement have and what they can enforce. They generally cannot room the streets of a city in enforce city or state law. But the other thing I will say, though it is unprecedented for federal authorities to take this level of approach for local jurisdictions in cities and Serge Federal resource is in them to take over public safety duties like arresting people. Police protesters. And I've said it before. I know some people think it's it sounds overdramatic, but to me, it looks like a dry run for martial law. And if we see these kinds of federal agents put into places where there's voting right concerns I'm very concerned about what it could do to suppress the vote in America. Say more about that. You're worried that in places where there might be concerns about whether or not people get access to the polls, right? I mean, if you look at it now, the places that that they're sending these Federal agents are primarily in places where there are significant protests against police violence and for racial equity. And it doesn't take much of a lead to also used those agents to say You're protecting the poles but have federal agents in and around polling places, too. Spite against fraud when really a suppression? I think we need a very clear commitment in advance of the election that general law enforcement are not going to be used as some kind of super police. In key battleground states in around you places. You've been talking with different mayor's around the country. Your counterparts in different states. Is that the kind of thing that has come up in conversation with them it has come up. I will tell you were focused day to day on dealing with the crisis in our city. But this kind of action when we feel happening in so many cities across your country, it gives all of us a grave concern is where it is. Jenny Durkan is the mayor of Seattle. We appreciate your time. Thank you for having me

FDA Nears Decision Authorizing Covid-19 Treatment With Convalescent Plasma

"There is a decision near on authorizing covert nineteen treatments with something called convalescent plasma even seen some ads about it on TV where celebrities say that if you've had covid nineteen, you can help be part of the solution by donating blood that can be turned into convalescent plasma. What does that mean? So. When people recover from this illness, they develop antibodies against the virus and you could take that blood in separate plasma fraction out of it in give that to people that are in the hospital sick with corona virus with the idea that this antibody will help them recover in. There are multiple clinical trials going on right now, there is some data from China that's coming out and we're really evaluating to see whether this is. Where I work at an academic medical center and some of my patients have gotten convalescent plasma. So this is something that we hope will work in May be a way to deal with the severe severe cases and get them out of the hospital quick prevented from going on a ventilator but we want to see the data I I haven't seen unequivocal evidence yet that this actually works, but we are very hopeful WanNa see the data.

Are Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google Too Big?

"Four titans of Tech are expected to testify virtually to the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google soon dark pitch high here to preview this star studded panel is our own star needs. Rachel Myrow, senior editor of Our Silicon Valley News desk. Hello, Rachel. Shocks. Hello, Brian. Just for context. Here is a challenge for the two of us who both worked at market place back in the day. Can you tell us how big these companies are without using a dollar figure Using a dollar figure? Okay. Facebook has roughly three billion with a B users across various social platforms. That's user numbers figure. Amazon controls 38% of US online sales. Wal Mart, For contrast, is Amazon's nearest competitors, not even 6% like not even in the game. Google process is about 90% of Web searches globally Apples APP store. You're there. You're nowhere in the apple universe. They take a 30% cut. 30%. Brian. Wow. You did it all right. Four very different companies. Four key parts of modern life and that raises for different sets of antitrust concerns, right It does indeed, And that face is big questions about what lawmakers hoped to accomplish with this hearing today, right? I mean, even though all of them are reportedly targets of probes by the Justice Department Coalition of State attorneys general, we could take all day talking about any one of these tech titans. All right. So let's pick one. Okay, I'll pick one. Amazon. You're a prime member, right? Yeah, me and just about everybody else in America. If I make and or market a product, I have to be on Amazon to sell it to America, and I have to pop up early in the rankings. When American shoppers search for my thing I have to pay Amazon to make that happen. Amazon, by the way, has been known to copy and prioritize marketing. Of its name brand version of popular third party products otherwise known as stealing or counterfeiting. Amazon also criticized for failing to shut down other counterfeiters. Let's say somebody else who shouldn't be making my product is making it and according to the Wall Street Journal fairly recently Amazon's venture capital fund steals ideas from tech start ups that pitch to it, So that's just a short list of things Amazon critics have to say about that company. Wow. So back to this question of why the House Judiciary subcommittee is holding this meeting today. Officially, it caps a big investigation. More than 1.3 million documents gathered. Yes, indeed. And I had to tell Brian it is anybody's guess. How much time Will actually be spent on that investigation. Despite that number of documents as opposed to the other hot, we hate tech topics like election security, hate speech and political bias. Wow. Well, Rachel, thank you. You bet. Cheese.

"Pennsylvania's health secretary. Calling out what she calls the transphobic harassment. She's experienced K Y. W's Andrew Kramer. Dr Rachel Levine says she's been hearing about multiple incidents of LGBTQ harassment on what she describes as transphobia. Directed at her lately. I have no room in my heart for hatred. And frankly, I do not have time for intolerance. She didn't get into the specifics of any one particular incident, but says an attack against her is an attack against Pennsylvania's entire LGBTQ community. Your actions perpetuate the spirit of intolerance and discrimination. Against LGBTQ, you individuals and specifically Transgender individuals. Governor Wolf recently acknowledged in a tweet that some Pennsylvanians quote, direct hate fuelled attacks. Dr Levin and that hate has no place in the Commonwealth.

Do you WANNA, kick off the ship or dropper, or would you like me to you do it? secretly hoping you would say that right. You should have just told you told me you were kicking it off and I would have not known I wouldn't have thought about it. That's the first piece of advice we're giving on. The show is just say what you want to happen. Instead of hoping, the other person will read your mind. So I. WanNa talk a little bit about the video game animal crossing New Horizons. Wonderful. Wonderful and has. Exaggeration to say it's gotten me through the last couple of months. It took me a second to get into Rachel. You're playing at before me. which will emma happen with any game ever again? It's never yeah. Yeah. Yes, it's never happened before. It will never happen again. But you were playing it Andrea was playing it and I just I. Don't know I was just like. Man I don't know if it's for me and then I I picked it up and I haven't put it down since and I I like check out the read it. I follow instagram account like I'm just so deep in the world of like. Learning, about it's not even just like playing. Animal crossing. You know it's also like learning about the universe and how it works. And I just WanNa talk about it as A. Transcendent. Experience. I mean I wonder if I would be having as transcendent of an experience with if it wasn't during like quarantine, right, you know but I kind of suspect I would because I'm not someone who when the pandemic isn't happening I'm like out. biking. Yeah! So I don't actually know that there is an I'm playing it so much enjoying it so much is because of the circumstances the world. However I will say that it allows you to hang out with people in a way. That's really nice like we've hung out on each other's islands. We'd like gotten together for little like animal crossing. Get togethers, and that's just like a nice thing to do. Do in a world where you can actually hang out in real life, you know. Yeah, it's very sweet and wholesome, and yeah, just were were limited and sort of the activities that we can participate in right now from a distance, so having a theme or an activity to do to sort of like be the root of your hang out, and then you know on the hang out you're. Chatting and catching up a bit, but you have something else kind of it's. It's nice to be able to do that when you can't go physically do a thing with somebody.

Reinventing Podcasts with Rachel Batish of Audioburst

"I like to say that podcasting is both old and new in new, because it's so hot right now. But I, just looked it up a few days ago in the first podcasts, two thousand four, so. Yeah, so it's been around for sixteen years as A. Jay and I think that anyone has created a podcast. You're dived under the hood and seen the tech works podcasting, realize Anna quickey in old. Some of those make it run. They give a really fresh take on the PODCAST. Listening experience can come urban more about our is different to listen to. Audio bursts versus your traditional podcast player. Yeah so I don't see ourselves as a competing with traditional podcast player, but actually is a complementary solution to improve the later on experience on your traditional a service audio burruss these again. If you remember at the beginning of Said we're focusing on search and discovery and I think this is today. The greatest challenge that off castres have we're talking about over one million podcasts on Apple podcast today. How they'll be find what you WANNA listen to right now, and this is what we're trying to solve. And the way that we do, it is both by analyzing the entire content so getting a little bit more techie we will listen to all of this content than our system transcribes it automatically of course and Ben Segments, directive topics, and then cuts it into those short snippets that we call I based on understanding the story that is compiling the entire episode or compiling tire radio show. And we extract in this process week. Strike a lot of words and entities and audio cues in speaker identification to make sure that we can take those five minutes or one hour, and actually cut it into stories that would make sense on their own, and it's very difficult very different. Different than the radio, because sometimes a podcast could be on one topic for forty five minutes. And then where do you start? And where does it end? which is a challenge that we're trying to overcome with our own data scientists, and so the first thing that we're changing guess first of all the ability to for discovery, a so through search and abilities of really drilling down into the content of the episode, and not just under description that the podcasts are gave for writes a lot of time you're you're saying okay. Let's hear something about Madonna and made you a Donna was the name, but there's nothing about her. So this is what we're changing on that. And then through the process of actually creating those short snippets, we decided to create a different experience. Just like you've said so. If I were to want to listen to Pakistan Madonna I. Don't want to I. Don't want to spend forty five minutes or even thirty minutes until I figure out that it says nothing about the Donna. But if I can get some highlight if I can get a short snippet that of provide me with information of what's this podcast is all about I can then decide if I wanted to listen to, or I want to skip to the next one, and in many cases just like we talked before we started recording. You know even now with covid. We tend to listen to podcast because we're at home. We're not commuting than. Spending our time in on discovery if we can get those snippets and maybe even get educated on several podcast, listening to five seven ten minutes from each one, which is talking exactly to the to the topics that I'm interested in and kind of keeping me up to date, and if there is one episode that I feel that I really wanNA listen to more, we always provide that option and then sends you back to your favorite service provided to listen to the. The entire podcast so I know it was a long answer, but if I summit up then I, think that ERC, influence or impact theories on the search discovery on the one hand, and then on the other hand in the ability to expose as many podcasts as many content in short snippets. It's kind of like the twitter of audio right, so it's sure it's fast and It keeps you up to date with anything that you WANNA that you, WanNa, listen to.

"Well so this comes down to what I think will be a really big enemy for some of you right now. And that's pride we all suffer from pride nobody's immune to it and what? I mean by this is you know I had a good corporate job Or I had whatever your job was and all of a sudden you gotta stock shelves at Walmart or your grocery store and it feels like you've gone so far backwards speaking to you men mostly here because we take such huge identity as a provider but right now. This isn't a you problem. There's no shame in your game as one of my friends says you gotTa do what it takes to provide those four walls. Don't have any shame. Swallow your pride. You do what you have to do and I. I love that you brought up going home. Because that's tough but I think our kids will learn more from watching their parents step up in a big moment of uncertainty and do what needs to be done and they would ever learn in any classroom. They're watching you. Don't be ashamed you own it. You show them what we're doing as a family. We're going to sacrifice we're GONNA get through this and as Dave said I believe six seven months from now. We're all going to be going. Wow what a weird time. That was and those kids are going to see that they're going to remember that. That's legacy type stuff of close my thoughts. Dave and Rachel on one of the best analogies ascending analysis is actually true of nature and how to different animals basically from the same species handle the storms so cows blessed the cows when a storm is coming across. The planes are coming across the pasture. They see the storm coming and they act like most humans do it. Maybe some view some of US act when life throws a storm at us. They start to try to outrun the storm but the storm overtakes them Dave and then because the storm is moving faster than they are. They spend more time in the storm because they're trying to run away from the storm but I don't know if it's their cousin or what but the buffalo these crazy animals. They're out on the planes. They see the storm. They run into the storm and as a result the storms coming to the buffalo and they run into it and as a result they get through it quicker. I think you are facing storm. We are facing store. Your Business is facing the store. Our nation is facing a store. Our world is facing a storm. I think what we're going to share with you tonight will help you take control of what you can control and I know that you can choose to run into the storm. Be like the buffalo run into that storm. And you'RE GONNA get through it quicker. Don't run away from it. There's no reason to be afraid of this. We will overcome this together. And Ramsey solutions is gonna be there for you and with you the entire time so what are takeaways for. You guys aren't tonight is. There's at least three things that you can control. We've talked about controlling the controllables that gives you a sense of power. Since of hope to push fear aside panicked hysteria the side first thing is you can control your attitude. Yes you really can't. You're not a victim. We didn't allow Ramsey kids when they were growing up. Rachel her brother or sister to say he made me mad. Nope you chose to be mad. Now maybe he was a jerk and maybe it was an injustice and maybe most people would be mad when that happened but no one makes you afraid. No one makes you mad. No one makes you happy. It's a decision you do. Control your attitude. And it's a matter of self control self discipline and the people that control their attitudes Do control a lot of things that happen in your life. No one makes you unkind. The Corona viruses made me be mean to all my neighbors on my facebook page in my neighborhood. No you're just being mean. No one made you me and you need to stop it. It'd be kind calm generous. Just choose facts. Are Your friends? No one control your attitude absolutely. Yeah number two is to control your money. I mean that's a big part of what we do here. Rooms solutions help you with your money. And Man no matter what category you're in we kind of walked through the three different situations but no matter where you are You can control that part You know whether it's the incoming in the spending. That's going out and so really really being intentional with that and so things like doing the budget. It's the banner I wave all the time. But it's true controlling that out your investments deciding not to go into debt in these situations. I I'm going to call the student loan people until Monday hardship. Deferral both of US HAVE LOST JOBS. And honestly I happy that there's going to be a government stimulus but truthfully it's not enough to fix your life if a thousand dollars fixtures your life you probably didn't have much of a life and so it's it's a nice thing and I'm glad for the politics and I'm glad for whatever if it makes her feel good up. There really what happens at your house is more important than what happens in the White House and it always has been. It always has been you get to choose how to control the money that is in your sphere and whether you're in a crisis and the medium or whether you're doing well you get to choose generosity you get to choose to not take out your investments. Exactly the wrong time you get to choose to not go into debt because you panicked and freaked out because you've been unemployed for thirty two seconds before you went and ran up a credit card the number of times. I HAVE COACHED PEOPLE ON THEIR FINANCES. And they say oh. I lost my job last year. And so I'm forty five thousand dollars in credit card debt and when I talk them through it a figure out that they lost their job for two months and they were making five thousand dollars a month so that means they need to ten thousand dollars to completely offset their loss of income and yet they went forty five thousand dollars in debt and used the job loss as an emotional rationalization to do stupid stuff and stupid when we've been doing stupid stuff and it goes into stress when stupidest stress tested. It comes up. It shows us being stupid. Some people have been doing some stupid stuff with money and right now it's being revealed. Warren Buffett. Used to say that that you know when the tide goes out you can tell. He was skinny dipping. Its principles your operating your life on were false principles and the only reason you're getting away with it was white hot economy. Now you know that there were false and now you know the idea of being out of debt being on a budget having some savings a really smart idea and I'm not saying I told you I've done dumber than any of you looking. I went completely broke in my twenties and lost everything because I did stupid stuff in a huge tower of it and you see an economy shift knocked the tower down and I thought I was a victim. I was a victim of basing my life on principles. I was the little big with the Straw House and I changed my life. Some of you. This is going to be the opportunity. You Change Your Life. My GRANDPA Ramsey was one of my favorite people on the planet was living. And I'll never forget in the seventies. I was in the backyard with him. We're pulling nails out of boards on deck. We were taken apart and every day we pulled out. We straighten it out and put it in a coffee. Can he kept used nails because he was a young man just freshly married with babies when the Great Depression hit and changed him forever. He was frugal and careful with money. Forever this might be yours someday. Your grandson maybe telling the story about the time that there was a work. Stoppage and people lost their jobs and you permanently for the rest of your life changed the way you handled money and started basing it on God's and grandma's common since instead of going crazy out here in extreme spending like most people do. This is an opportunity to change that so. I'm not shaming you. If you messed up. I'm here to help you messed up. I'm the king of messed up. But this might be your wakeup call. This could be the best thing that ever happened to some of you and the third controllable is this. You control your opportunity. It's right you know the way that you think controls the way that you act and when we've talked about perspective tonight folks you've got to understand that right now as Davis said you have some of you some very urgent needs and so you are going to have to go get an opportunity. You know when we talk about proximity and the book the proximity principle. It's very simple when you're on the right people and in the right places opportunities present themselves you gotta be okay to say. Hey I need help. I need some work. I'll do whatever it takes. I got some beautiful kids at home and I'm willing to do whatever I'll work the midnight. Shift our drive. I'll do whatever your opportunity is right in front of you but you're going to have to go get it and you're going to have to be intentional and again understanding the way that you think is how you change the way that you act if you think. Hey I can do this. I need to do this. I must do this your whole mindsets different and I would also be in a situation where you're putting yourself in places for future opportunity. Remember just because we've got all this craziness and uncertainty going on doesn't mean Dave and Rachel that you can't put yourself not just in the financial but in your job and you put yourself in a position that when this thing slingshots back you're ready for opportunity. John Wooden maybe the greatest coach of all time the legendary. Ucla basketball coach. I am a fan. A beautifully said when opportunity comes it's too late to prepare and those are wise words and I think a challenge to us tonight days right you can control your opportunities but you have to have the mindset that I can make opportunities happen Dave. You're absolutely right. Not just in our jobs but also as leaders. If you're a pastor right now you're leading a church bunch of you watching a friends of mine that are doing that. Lee Small Business at Ramsey. We've got about a thousand team members. Nine hundred forty some odd team members just under a thousand If you're a leader of an organization like that and people are depending on you for the payroll to come to them for them to feed their families. You're feeling the weight of this as a leader Times like this leadership sucks some of your having to make some really hard calls from really tough decisions. We're going to be really careful and make some decisions around here. Just a couple of days ago we start pivoting a whole bunch of stuff around here. Some of you. There's going to be some things you pivot. That are tonic. Wow that.

"And we've got to change it talked to you about sort of how you see yourself fitting into Democratic Party politics at this point interesting news today about Steve Bullock. He was in and out in a hot minute. And the presidential race and Democrats are ecstatic today about the reports that he is going to jump into that Senate rate send Montana because he's perceived to be the best shot at winning back that the Democrats which would go along way toward getting Mitch McConnell out of Control of the Senate now when he was running for president part of the reason he articulated for why he was running for president because he worried that the primary was two left he were the policies like Medicare for all your signature. Healthcare policy was going to be alienating to too many potential Democratic voters so in a universe in which you're the leading war one of the two leading candidates for the nomination you may be the nominee. Steve Bullock is a very important democratic Senate nominee. Potentially in Montana. Can you help him get elected or do you have to keep your distance that he will he will make decisions but of course? I can help them at the. I've heard this argument a whole lot of time. I believe that in the general election the way you be trump. Is that the largest voter turnout in history. This country do not underestimate donald trump. You'll have endless amounts of money. Because he doesn't believe in the rule of law He will combine federal agencies with his own campaign. He has loyal group of supporters. So it's going to be so easy to beat them but I believe that it will be very hard to beat him when you're running a old fashioned type of campaign when you're running a you know the same old same old. You need energy. You need excitement. We need to bring working class people into the campaign some of them may have voted for trump. We need to bring young people into the campaign. Maybe who never voted before? And you talk about Medicare for all Medicare for all is wildly popular with working class and lower income people who understand that we have a dysfunctional health care system. We are spending twice as much and by the way I would love to debate Joe Biden on this issue. Give us an hour on. Msnbc all right where we can talk about how anybody could defend a system in which we're spending twice as much per capita on healthcare as the people of any other country and yet eighty seven million uninsured thirty thousand die. Half a million people go bankrupt every year because a medically related debt and we spent far and away the highest prices the world for prescription drugs. You want to defend that system. Let's do it. I think that that is an issue that wins that speaks the needs of working families people the test the greed and the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry is president of the United States. I will take them on. You know I'm GonNa ask you the follow-up question now about turnout because you you as long as I have been talking to you about American politics you have made this case and I have. I believe it that turnout is the difference in that when it comes to progressive politics in particular increased turnout gets you and increase shot of not only changing Democratic Party but changing the country. And the turnout is not there for you. The turn out is the turnout does not look good. Thus far in the Democratic primary we can talk about that in detail. But I know you're aware of it but let me just say this in terms of young people. I mean one of the issues that should be talked about to his credit and I wish we could do better. Joe Biden is doing very very well with people. Sixty five rolled. We're not doing phenomenally. Well with people thirty or undone now. Which Group of people is there? More potential to grow the base the bring people in clearly. Young people historically have not voted in the kinds of numbers that one would like them to vote. It's going up but it is nowhere near as high as it is with all it's not going up and that's with your campaign right now. Firing on all cylinders and all the benefit you out from all the amazing organizing you didn't 2016. No states last night's on increase in young voters as a percentage of the electorate compared with twenty sixteen in in North Carolina and Tennessee and Virginia even here in Vermont Young voters made up a smaller proportion of the electorate than in twenty sixteen. Why are fewer young people turning out in twenty twenty? I mean what I will tell you is that an I what we tripled. We increase by thirty three percent. The number of young people who participate. I'm not familiar with these statistics. I really haven't seen them but look. This is the challenge that we have. We have the lowest voter turnout of almost every major country on earth less than sixty percent poor people in America by very big numbers. Do not vote. How do we bring them into the political process? Why do they not go? Why are young people not only? This is tough stuff. And you're right. We are trying to do that. I understand that it is easier to bring older. People have been voting for their whole lives but we are working really hard to try to bring people out. I think in the general election we will be successful. I WANNA I WANNA go back to that in terms of the general election how it might be different but on this question of working class voters in Virginia. Virginia was the one St yesterday where we actually did see a bit of a surge in voters without a four year college degree. In Virginia it was up in terms of raw numbers and the proportion from two thousand sixteen but Joe Biden carried. Those voters two to one and we didn't see a surge and working class voters and other states. And because it's the because it's so central to your idea of what your brand of politics is why people should get involved in the electoral process. But I don't understand is why and more while you're not this year and what I have seen. Is that in the previous states. In fact we did very well with working class people. This is the first one I'm hearing about that. But at the end of the day I have not the slightest out in the world that our campaign is the campaign that speaks the working class. People who have long been ignored with establishment has turned their backs on them. And if you look at the numbers Medicare for all is extremely popular with working class. People who cannot afford to pay in some cases twelve fifteen thousand dollars a year for the healthcare that they currently have so. I have zero doubt that our agenda which calls for raising the minimum wage to fifteen bucks demanding that the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes dealing with climate change through a green new deal in creating up to twenty million jobs. That is the agenda that will win the election of the trump and the argument is that the agenda will drive the turnout overall. You've talked about needing the biggest voter turnout that America has ever seen and that you needed in those specific swabs the electorate that are underrepresented. That don't feel politics. Works for them. If the agenda is working to spike turn out in those groups to bring it up overall and I will tell you. The data says that. It's not right now in two thousand twenty data in the state. The early three states that you won the turnout was either. It was either flat or it was statistically significant in terms of its Nevada. One hundred twenty percent increase. Voter turnout New Hampshire the largest voter turnout in the history. I always flat. I was flat New Hampshire. When you compare it with two thousand and eight you look at population. Two thousand eight was when Obama ran his campaign. Yes all right. Well that's fine well bomber ran and exceptional campaign but in the Vata turnout was twenty percent higher. Shot Lodges Voter Turnout in. Its history was slow in terms of. Do you think that you should be able to match two thousand eight voter turnout numbers? I would hope so and I hope that in the general election I think the fact that here's the point about the general election number one. I believe I know that every Democratic candidate will support the widow. Those who have left the race. I will support Biden Biden will support me. We will bring together ninety nine percent of all Democratic voters. That's not the question they've got to come in. Because trump is the most dangerous president in modern history doesn't understand the constitution doesn't care for the rule of law is a racist and sexist et CETERA. We will get them so the challenges. How do you expand the vase? And if anybody thinks you could do it through the same old same old type of politics I would respectfully disagree your energy. You're GONNA need excitement and I think that is the campaign that we have. And by the way I do not accept that Medicare Medicare for all polled very well. Yesterday among Democratic voters demanding the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes is extremely popular with the concept of a wealth tax that Elizabeth Warren and I have talked about is a very popular concept so I believe that not only. Are the ideas that I am talking about? Ideas that are long overdue ideas that exists in many cases in every other country. You're talking about Medicare for all you know we all right now. Fifty miles from the Canadian border go up to Canada. Everybody there has health care is a human right. The quality is good. They're spending less that fifty percent of what we're spending. Why why are you saying? And it speaks to the power of the drug companies the insurance companies who dominate because on and healthcare they make one hundred billion a prophet eighty seven million. People uninsured underinsured. I don't think it's a radical idea Rachel. I don't think making public colleges and universities as radical idea it exists in Germany existing countries and Scandinavia. All over the world and then you get the climate change. Is it radical to say that we should try to save the planet and tell the fossil fuel industry can't destroyed the planet? I don't think it's a radical idea so I reject problems that we have to use an extremist. There's nothing we are fighting for. That is extreme would exist all over this country it is what the American people want and are sanders. Have a lot more to ask you about including some news about corona virus a very surprising new proposal from the trump administration related to corona virus. That has a little touch on the Medicare for all right. Let's talk about that when we come back we're with Senator Bernie Sanders Vermont here in Burlington..

I told him that if he doesn't the amount was the key at that time because of the inauguration that that pence would not show up nobody would show to operation unless he announced an investigation into Joe Biden No. US officials particularly vice president. Mike Pence would not come to corrosive Mike Pence that conversation as Mr Parnell describes it He says that was in May of last year may twelfth specifically a meeting he says with a top hop aid to the incoming president elect in Ukraine. Mr Zelinski top adviser. He says that demand that he made that they need to announce the Biden investigation was rebuffed. The Ukrainians Indians did not agree to announce a Biden investigation. Despite the threat Mr Parnell was making their on behalf of the White House and when they rebuffed his demand and they did not provide abide that announcement of the investigation. In fact the following day. The White House made good on their threat and vice president. Mike Pence did cancel his planned trip to this Alinsky the inauguration that's as far as we got in the interview with Mr Parnasse as of last night but the way it went down thereafter. Is that after vice. President pence is cancelled his trip to the inauguration within a few days the US government decided they would send another senior official in his place. So let's pick up the story there. That's when we flew to Paris and Paris whomever for and we were comparison rudy basically. That's when I found out that the Perry was to the these decided to set Perry. They're Senator Secretary Rick Perry Creek. It's did you you learn from Mr Giuliani correct. Was Mr Perry to your knowledge. Aware of what you and Mr Giuliani. We're trying onto do in Ukraine in terms of getting these investigations announced.

I do you know if part of the message that Mr Giuliani conveyed. The secretary it was also that Ukraine would lose their military aid. They'd lose their.

They were constantly every time somebody would do skeet the ovary and then they will walk it back so they found something of a corruption that he's going to have corruption but that Giuliani blue lit on that saying.

"The show weeknights at nine eastern on. MSNBC tonight we will present part two of my interview with left Parnis. Now as I said before the first part of the interview last night and I want to reiterate now Mr Partners is under federal indictment. He was one of four defendants charged in early October. With multiple felonies related to an alleged scheme to funnel four and otherwise illegal donations to various Republican publican candidates and campaigns including more than three hundred thousand dollars in allegedly illegal donation to the main super pacs. Supporting the president's reelection. Mr Parnell is under indictment. He says he would like to cooperate with the impeachment investigators. He says he would also like to cooperate. Operate with the federal prosecutors who have charged him in the southern district of New York but he is right now out on bond awaiting trial and I will just mention at the outset that I am cognizant of the fact that we are presenting the second part of this interview tonight rather than just diving right right into some of the other momentous and historic news of today including the start today of the Senate trial of President Trump today marks only the third third time in US history that an American president has faced an impeachment trial in the Senate and it was a solemn beginning today the administering of the oath to the chief the justice of the Supreme Court the administering the oath to all senators all of the senators individually signing their names to the oath one by one in alphabetical order. Solemn thing it's a sobering thing this is a big deal and it is worse worth you know. Massive headlines is that it's getting all over the country it is absolutely worth marking this day in history. It is also worth noting that the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office today today issued a ruling that it was illegal for president trump to withhold aid to Ukraine as part of this scheme that what he did there was against the law all for that to be arriving today that ruling from the Government Accountability Office on the day that the Senate impeachment trial starts and this is all a big deal but it's also becoming clear that what happens next in the impeachment of president trump in this senate trial may depend in part on the additional evidence and witnesses who are still coming forward as the Ukraine scheme is coming more fully to light and so onward. Here's part two all right. One of the main questions. A lot of different people have asked I myself. uh-huh have have asked and have wondered main question asked about Mr Parnassus decision to give this first. Public interview is why why he would speak out publicly while he's out on bond awaiting trial right. That is atypical behavior to say. The least for a federal criminal defendant particularly particularly one who has a sentient lawyer. I mean the common wisdom is that public remarks and remarks to the media could really only disadvantage a defendant in his or her dealings with federal prosecutors. Right if you speak out publicly if you speak to the media it's GonNa hurt your criminal case that is the common wisdom for all federal defendants and all kinds of criminal mental trials. So why Mr Parnasse doing well. In this case Mr says that he has a significant in fear of the Justice Department and specifically he has significant fear of attorney. General William Bar for him. That is not reason to be quiet. That is part of the reason why he's making his case now to the public. My understanding spending a longtime with Mr Parnasse. Doing this interview view is that he believes he's safer putting this stuff out in the public sphere. Then he is keeping his mouth shut while the Justice Department knows what he was involved in and they know what he knows and they have his fate in their hands. My only objective is there. Get the truth out. Because I'd never thought I did. I was doing anything wrong. I still you know I. I regret certain things that I did. Because like you know hurting passenger and you know 'cause that was not something uptick but it was part of. It's like when you're in a war. You think like casualties and stuff like that. It's it's it's bad to say but it was it was I keep saying it was like you know being being in the call I mean and when they say organized Kinda I don't think trump was like org. I think he's like a cult leader the braid now the scary part. And that's what I keep mentioning and people don't understand Stand there's there's a lot of Republicans that would go against him. The only reason if you take a look and you know very well because you've been following the difference between white trump is so a powerful now and he wasn't as powerful and sixteen and seventeen. He became the powerful when he got William Bar. People are scared and my scare. Yes because I think more scared of our Justice Department than of these criminals right now because the scariest part is getting locked than some room and get treated as an animal. When did nothing wrong or or when you're not you know and that's the tool? They're using I mean I mean just because they're trying to scare into not talking and doing what God's help with my my moyer next to me that I know we'll go back for me no matter what would the truth and I'm taking the chance. My wife is scared my kids in there. He says they're trying to scare me into not talking. King Mr Par is referencing. Something specific. Actually that I asked him about in more detail and different part of the interview that I'm GonNa show you just a moment But what Mr describes there as a sort of what he says is is a cultish environment him saying getting out of that cultish environment around the president resident now makes him regret some of his actions that thing that he saying about it being like a cult that he regrets his behavior there that applies as well to the central claim at the heart of the impeachment scandal. which was this concerted effort? That Mister Peres was involved in to accuse former vice president Joe Biden of wrongdoing doing and to get Ukraine to announce investigations of Vice President Biden in terms of the information. The allegations against Vice President Biden. Mr Shokhin mix allegations against Mr Biden. Mr Lukashenko also makes allegations against Mr Biden. Do you believe that those allegations were true. When we were dealing with? When I was in the middle of the thick of things I think I was kind of in? I keep saying it's like a cultish environment of being around president trump because like I've been in DC for two years. I've never left the trump hotel type of situation so I truly believed seeing in different information that was handed to us at that time. That Joe Biden was doing something illegal Not so much hunter Biden but more Joe Biden but after are analyzing all the evidence and sitting back and release. What's a call understanding what's going on? I don't think I don't think vice-president buying anything wrong. I think he he was protecting our country and getting rid of probably a crooked. The Attorney General and people use this to their advantage. A lot of rich people in Ukraine have their agenda and they use US here for their own political stuff so I think this is was a big one in terms of material that was handed over to intelligence on March Twenty Second Mr Lutsenko texts shoe in Russia and and there's a translation Asian that's provided by the committee. Says it's just that if you don't make a decision about Madam you are bringing into question all my allegations including about be. So when he says Madam is he talking about Besser investor group and when he says all allegations including about be about reach Mumbai Buy Yes okay. And it's very small or Biden. I guess it could be either. It was always buy them. Barista was just I mean nobody cares about Berea. S'mores Jeff Ski. It was The concern was biting them. Hunter by in that text message to you is Mr Sankoh saying in effect. Listen if you want me to make these despite allegations you're going to have to get rid of this ambassador. Absolutely was he threatening that. If you didn't get rid of the ambassador. He might withdraw his allegations. He actually drew. He withdrew within several times. He wanted ambassador IANOVICH ousted for his own career reasons. He had clashed with her in her anticorruption efforts. That head butted up against it's ten. Let's Cinco and Shokhin both had an interest in getting rid of US ambassador. Maria von Vich. And it's funny because they both don't like each other the Sean Can Hayslett go. And even though I used to be his underling but They say listen. It's it's a different environment over there in. Its unless you live unless you do business there unless you on the visit there and understand that Bribery and it's just a way of life. I mean regular people at the store do it. They'll bribe the butcher together. Better meet piece of meat and it's normal or get better seats at the concert. So it's like away of life over there so the way the structures up and that's why everybody's hoping Zilenski changes it but I don't know how much he could change with one. Says like there's already embedded Bennett. This was Where once you become in America? It's like you become a politician to serve your country not to make money because you can make money in Ukraine. It's the opposite view. Some of these people pay millions of dollars to get a seat as a politician so once they get there. So it's all about the money and it's all about about the power left Parnis a key fixer and figure in the effort to fit up Vice President Joe Biden with accusations of wrongdoing in Ukraine to force the government to announce investigations into Mr Biden to force out to the US ambassador. Marie Ivanovich who was in the way of that effort. Mr Mr Parnasse now apologizing to that. US Ambassador Ambassador Yvonna Vich we dot last night and as I just showed you Mr Parnasse also says he now now does not believe that Vice President Biden did anything wrong in Ukraine and that Vice Presidents Vice President Biden's actions there which Mr Parnasse helped try to turn into do a scandal in his words. Now he says Mr Biden's actions were taken to protect our country and get rid of a crooked attorney. General by confirming firming the nature of his own communications with that official he refers to as a crooked attorney general. Mr Partners also makes clear that the removal of ambassador avant was a demand from the key. Accusers that he and Mr Giuliani and the president and others have been using to make this this false case against Biden the accusers including boatload Cinco Shokhin Wanted Ivanovich Gone Looks Sankoh explicitly demanded to pardon us that the ambassador be removed or his allegations against Biden might be a risk shokhin and Lutsenko wanted Ambassador Ivanovich removed and left parties telling because they were corrupt and she was a force against corruption in Ukraine. And they wanted her out of their way to think about the collateral damage that was caused not only in our own country but around the world and in Ukraine by this scheme to aid the president's reelection effort McAfee pretty clear sense sense of what that might be in Ukraine when it comes to anti-corruption president trump alleged personal role in trying to remove ambassador. IANOVICH before she was ultimately recalled old. We're going to have more on that coming up this hour as well but we started four we get to that. There's there's one other piece of this that I want to foreground here. That isn't specifically weekly about President Trump. It's about another senior. Member of the trump administration who love says stepped in to play a role in the Ukraine scheme at a very key moment the new president of Ukraine elected on this anti-corruption platform right engaged in ongoing war with Russia he's inaugurated in May as the new leader of Ukraine. Heat somewhat desperately needs a show of support strong show of support from the United States government. That's key to the US. Ah the Ukraine in terms of its fight with Russia among other things on the eve of Zelenskaja's inauguration Mr Parthenis told me and the portion of the interview. We played yesterday okay that he was directed by Rudy Giuliani with spoken to president trump about it. He was directed to really turn up the pressure on Ukraine to demand to the Ukrainian government.

"Who the target was was extremely small and it was a matter of hours that people knew that this was happening in in that very small group? So that's it's the exact question of trying to get an answer to tonight. Rachel is exactly what. What were they doing in advance in hell far in advance were they was the US military planning for this and what the potential blowback can be and how they prepare in advance for it? General Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs today specifically said that they have he has the forces they're are necessary to protect US assets but that was hours before this happened. The entire situation has changed since Rachel intern coordinator in terms of what happens next next year. Obviously we've been talking tonight about all of these experts in the field national security experts talking about how the Ron may take their time and their response and that they may respond in a way that it is quite irregular rather than just the regular sort of asymmetric warfare. They they mount all over the world that they may pursue things like assassinations. They may try I to extend their reach quite far around the globe in terms of how they go after specific American targets that they think merit a proportion they think would merit a proportionate response is at the Pentagon that response to that is that US intelligence that also response to those kinds of threats. Do we know if any of that's being scaled up it's going to be all of the all of the above because we also the with Iran we don't know if they're going to respond necessarily to use installations to military bases to diplomatic posts or will they respond to in in a way going after commercial shipping as we've seen them do over the summer the potentials also you know they could go in a cyber realm. The potential sensual is is is so wide and broad at this point that I think the the US government. I can imagine at this point all over the US government they are looking at the potentials and how they can can. They can shore up any kind of defenses all over for any potential Ronnie and Response Certainly Kobe. Pentagon correspondent for NBC News. Thank you very much appreciated. Thanks all right. We'll be right back almost one. AM here on the East Coast. We're continuing to follow the late breaking news. That president trump ordered the killing of the top military leader in Iran. This is not your typical tit for tat escalation of hostilities and insults between the US and Iran this is something for which the potential ramifications are. Frankly bottomless we will continue to keep you updated through the night here on. MSNBC as the story continues to develop.

"Thank you both thank you all three of you for being here i i'm super nervous to talk to you very happy that you're here let me start with the some of the stormy daniels stuff that we learned today danny what's retainer a retainer is an interesting concept sometimes it's a flat fee but sometimes it's an amount that's paid you that you have to put into your client trust account and then pay yourself as you bill hourly but there are a lot of rules that relate to retainers retainer you can't just in many cases take someone's check or take someone's money and just stuff it in your pocket just as it is with any business in america but with lawyers there are several additional ethical rules we have to tell our client what we're charging them ideally it should be an unwritten fee agreement there is a paper trail rachel and i'm not so sure there was one in this case so in this the reason it's newly relevant and the reason we're all trying to figure out what that might mean legally is that rudy giuliani is now saying that the way the president paid people including stormy daniel he's suggesting that might be multiple this ranging from multiple people is that he had a retainer that he was paying michael cohen as attorney michael cohen was doing no legal work in conjunction with that retainer and so therefore that money was a pass through that he funneled money that's the way that's the term is funneled money through michael cohen to pay people and it looked like legal fees it looked like legal that it's money that he was paying michael cohen for legal work even though it it wasn't clearly there'd be an ethical problem for michael cohen on that it sounds like i think the problem is the least of the concerns because ethical problems really relate to your professional your professional responsibility and your license right but whenever you're funneling through any intermediary company and concealing the source concealing the destination you run into actual federal law and criminal law and that can be a problem but at least in terms of retainers no retainers were not designed to be loans or or money that gets paid out and paid in you can't use your slush funds.

"Well first of all california has more dreamers as you mentioned than any state in the country and these kids in in particular the daca kids those that were covered by the the president's executive action had been coming to my office on a daily basis and they're terrified rachel they are terrified i'm meet them on the public face of of of this issue and they come up to me in all places where i am and they will tell me they are daca and almost to a one day than just start crying because they are terrified that at any moment they're going to be separated from their families and they're going to be removed from the only home they've ever known and what's most insidious about this issue is that we made these kids promise as a country the united states of america promised these kids that if they play by the rules if they give us information about who they are the circumstances of their arrival are they living a productive life we did background checks have they committed crimes and if they cleared a vet we gave them the stock a status and we told them we will not share that information with ice we will not deport them and now we're at a moment where this administration arbitrarily on september fifth decided to revoke that promise and then came up with another arbitrary date march fifth by which we are going to end the protection of these almost eight hundred thousand young people who by the way our in our colleges in our graduate schools serving in our military working in fortune one hundred companies.

"All this way well the president can express a desire that the attorney general's stay in a case but you shouldn't be surprised by what am about to say rachel uh the department of justice is full of lawyers and so there is a bunch of rules that are written down about when you must recuse herself and when you should recuse yourself so the must category is really easy but say you would have a financial stake in the outcome of the case must refuse yourself ward involves a family member you must recuse yourself but there's also a whole bunch of instances where you should recuse yourself where for instance your participation in a case would give rise to an appearance of a conflict of interest because after the justice system appearances count for a lot and so in my view this is really a pretty simple call the attorney general had at the very least an appearance of a conflict in fact he may actually be a witness in this case loose there is the potential for that he had the recused himself and there's nothing that the president or anyone else should have done or could have done really to stop that from happening and the president getting involved in this way personally directing somebody to go intervene in that process to try to stop the recusal could that be construed as a form of obstruction or interference with the working with the proper workings of the justice department around initially like that the answer to that is maybe an in here's why i'm going to be a little we easily on my answer to your original it.

"She were uh the public trust and confidence that this investigation there may be an illegal it was dealt with but to get in front of it and as oppose it be an even larger story that there's a cover up uh activity that's on toward or even illegal but chuck than i had some so i i i agree with it but there's something about that the troubled me i i don't think i was rattled but i was troubled let me tell you why the way we view our justice system sort of turns on two factors one is that outcomes are fair unjust if you rob a bank rachel and you're convicted for robbing the bank that's a fair and just outcome but there's a second way that we sort of measure our justice system it's our perception of fairness you rob a bank you're convicted of robbing the bank but the prosecutors talking about his disdain for tall white women with dark hair and he's been doing that for twenty years so you're justly convicted but people doubt that the process has the integrity that it ought to have right so you need the perception of the system to be fair and you need the system to actually be fair and here's the problem with the text messages it answers one of those questions or it pretends to answer one of those questions that suggests that the process is not fair what i was hoping what happens at the inspector general would put out a report telling us about everything there was a bad perception perhaps they shouldn't have written what they wrote i'm not convinced that you know the first amendment argument gets us out of this thing meaning that they can write whatever they want whenever they want to write it ought to be more circumspect but if those techs come out in context then the ig could also tell us that the outcome was fair right now other words they shouldn't have written these things they should have been more circumspect rachel but there's no reason to think that the outcome was tainted and so that's the problem with just released in the tax without the context for them and without a sense of how this is going to impact the.

"National security advisor michael flynn pled guilty to lying to the fbi about talking with the russian ambassador about sanctions we now know from good reporting that's not contested from the white house that a lot of other trump transition officials knew that he had had those conversations with the russians about sanctions several of them who were told about those conversations then publicly lied about it there's been reporting that the special councils particularly interested in flint spiring whether there were attempts to obstruct the investigation into have given all of that do you have any sense anything you can speak about publicly as to why so many people in the trump administration publicly lied about mike flynn and the fact that he was talking to the russians about sanctions do you have any sense of what was motivating that you have rachel that the pattern here whether it's around michael flynn or anyone else who had contacts with russia was to protect candidate or president trump and then to protect themselves and only when the fbi uh or our investigation of reporting has confronted them with conflicting evidence have they sometimes come around but also uh what the other question i have is a why did they allow michael flynn to stay on for so long once they knew that he had lied now bob moeller to contrast with president trump when he found out he had an agent too had the perception of a of a fit for favoritism for a canon for one of the persons being investigated he was fired immediately he was let go and president trump only fired michael flynn once it became a public relations problem for him if you want to compare the two as far as their character congressman eric swallow of california judiciary committee member intelligence committee member.
