"I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Stacy Vanek, Smith. Build that wall was presidential candidate Donald Trump's rallying cry in 2016. Now his 2020 opponent is saying no new Wall that's presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. He has not made himself available for many interviews with reporters. Oh, he did sit down with a team representing the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists and NPR's very own. Lulu Garcia Navarro was among them. Hi, Lulu. Hi there. Inks for joining us, So you've got to talk with the former vice president about a bunch of issues. I did indeed. And he laid out what I thought was his clearest vision. Yet for completely overturning President Trump's agenda, Let's start with the border wall. As you know, progress on the wall has been Sort of stymied by quite a few legal challenges, and President Trump has had to reroute federal funds to pay for its construction. I asked Biden if he would tear down the new parts of the wall. There will not be another foot of wall constructed on my administration. Number one number two. What I'm going to focus on and the and you're the fact is that somebody in this group written a lot about border. I'm going to make sure that we have border protection, but it's going to be based on making sure that we use high tech capacity to deal with it. And at the ports of entry. That's excellent investigations. What have the land confiscations will end and stop done over not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We're out. We're not going to confiscate the land, and this is the first time he said that the issue of land confiscations is a big one. When former President Obama came into office with Joe Biden, they allowed border wall planned under the Bush administration to continue he's saying here. All work will stop if he becomes president. And then from what I understand, Biden spoke about China. He did I asked him about if he would rescind the China tariffs that Trump has put in place and he said yes, manufacturers gone and recession. Agriculture lost billions of dollars of taxpayers had to pay. We're going after China in the wrong way, and then I asked him What do you want in return? Are you just going to scrap them without without any concessions? No, no, Here's the deal. The question is, what is the appropriate behaviour that they have to engage in international relate international trade with us and they have to play by the international rules, and what we have done is we have disarmed ourselves. We make up 25% of the world's economy, but we poked our finger in the eye of all of our allies out there. So what Biden suggests, is gathering the international community together to place pressure on China to do what is right, not using tariffs as a stick. I also hear that there was a pretty feisty exchange about cognitive testing. Cognitive testing, of course, is something that President Trump has said when Very well for him recently. Yes, he was asked if he has taken a test for cognitive decline, and he said, no. Come on, man. That's like saying you before you got this program. You take a test where you're taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Biden added that he's very willing to let the American public judge his physical and mental fitness and that he's looking forward to the debates. There was a lot more from our interview, which will be out tomorrow morning, where Biden discusses immigration and asylum, racial justice and whether Trump could face prosecution once he's out of office, and we should say that President Trump was also invited for an interview, and he never committed Okay, well, we're really looking forward to this interview. That was NPR's Lulu Garcia Navarro. Thanks, Lulu. Welcome. First President Trump started a trade war between the U. S and China. Now, the two rivals seemed to be at war over technology in June, the U. S designated telecom company Huawei, a threat to national security. Today, the focus is Tic tac President, Trump floated the idea of banning the social networking platform that millions of Americans use. Tic Tac's parent company in Beijing is considering selling to Microsoft. Adam Segal directs the digital and cyberspace policy program at the Council on Foreign Relations. And he joins us now to talk about the future of Chinese tech companies in the U. S Good to have you here. For America. You know, experts say, Tic Tac does not harvest anymore. User data than Facebook does. So what makes the Trump administration so nervous about this platform? I think two things first. According to the 2017 National Intelligence Law in China, all Chinese companies entities appear to have to cooperate with the intelligence services. So there's a fear that That data will be turned over to the Communist Party into the Chinese government. And I think also TIC TAC represents a symbol for the Trump Administration of the first global social media company, Toe emerge. Out of China, and it's a challenge to the U. S s domination of the Internet. You know, For years we have seen China either ban US tech companies or restrict them unless they agree to play by Beijing's rules. Do you think what we're seeing from the Trump Administration is similar to that? It is. Unfortunately, I think it is a degree of reciprocity as you said U. S firms have been banned in China for a long time. But I think the problem for the United States is is that we've always encouraged a free and open Internet. So if we seem to be adopting the same tools is Beijing. It really undermines that argument. You know, we mentioned Tic Tac in Wa Way. Another example is grinder. The Chinese owner was forced to sell that dating up earlier this year after the US raise national security concerns. Given all these examples, do you think any Chinese tech company will be able to thrive and dominate in the U. S market? I think it's going to very hard. I think any Chinese, a company that touches large parts of U. S citizens, data eyes going to find it very hard going. Ah, and then certainly tech companies and sectors that appear important to national security, like five g or a I are going to face similar restrictions. And is that going to be true? No matter who's in the White House. I think it's very unlikely that the biting administration will take a much more accommodating attitude towards China..

"Off The coast of Nicaragua that was carried out by the United States in two, thousand, sixteen, the arbitration tribunal of the. Rule in favor of the Philippines in Philippines versus China, stating that China had no historical rights to any land or territory of the South China Sea, and for those you guys who don't know. China's been building a bunch of illegal islands in the South China, sea went accord and the arbitration tribunal ruled against China. Now in the case of the former, the first nick over the US US ambassador to the UN John Kirkpatrick said this of the International Court of Justice. He's that a semi legal semi judicial semi political body which nations sometimes accept and sometimes don't. This then went to the UN General. Assembly, where states had to vote on whether they believed the US should comply with the verdict or not, and all member states except Israel. The United States and Salvador voted against the US, but despite this the US chose not to pay any sort of finer reparations to Nicaragua, and they had no legal obligation to do so because as we've established at the very start of this case, the UN General Assembly resolutions are not binding. They are merely suggestions, so despite the fact that every country voted against America, except three America's still didn't have to pay any reparations to Nicaragua. Now in the latter case, which is Philippines versus China. In the latter case, which is Philippines versus China China also chose to reject the arbitrations ruling on the South China Sea, and since then they've only accelerated construction of islands in the region. And in both cases the US and China could get away with it because like we've said these are not binding resolutions or binding rulings, so he see yet another example of international law nod applying to the most powerful states in the world, the US and China, literally the two most powerful countries in the planet. So now my recommendation on how to solve this as follows and please note that I'm not claiming that this is how we can guarantee compliance to international law from countries like America and China. What I am seeing? Is that without the following steps taking place compliance from states like the US and China with international law would be impossible. So my recommendation is this that in addition to the structural reforms pertaining to the UN setup and the UN Charter, the funding structure needs to dramatically change as well former labor secretary of the US and current economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr Robert Reich, says this, but no matter what the organization is, follow the money to truly understand them, and this holds true for the UN and international legal system as well currently, the International Court of Justice. Is financed by the Secretary General's Trust Fund, which is taken directly out of UN funding, and we've spoken extensively about how the five donations wield a disproportionate amount of power over the UN's proceedings, so the five veto countries right literally account for forty five percent of Total U. N. funding, which means that a hundred ninety odd countries account for fifty five percent. Five countries account for forty five percent. I let you do the number crunching to figure out. How does the power dynamic? Now, further off these forty five percentage points, thirty eight percentage points are funded by the US and China alone so we see how they're able to evade international decisions that go against them. They control the money supply of these various solutions. So this is yet another example of how without this structural change, institutional funding international law will be used merely as a tool of. Excuse me. International, law will be used merely as a tool of America in China or countries like America. In China to preserve their own geopolitical interests, and all other financially influential countries that donate a lot of the US will follow suit. So how can we change this funding structure, Dr Mark, I look who was the two thousand and six deputy secretary, General of the United Nations under Kofi Annan, said that the united. Nations and all related international organizations today are league with a gross and ineffectual redundancy, which hinders swift decision making the United Nations databases estimate that they have an annual budget of twenty billion dollars including all relevant programs..

The UN does relate to Israel their UN NGOs involved we do the UN aspect of it and the UN watched as the we do the NGO aspect when they do the UN aspect and that fills in the puzzle. Pretty WELL INDEED I. I'm very very proud to say that Working with Hillel Neuer at the Geneva Summit for Human Rights and democracy is on my CV as I interviewed the UCD rape victim For Rita her laugh on state. Twenty eighteen I I saw that. That's I think that is definitely something to be emphasized. I've been to some of the Geneva summits they are an alternative to what the UN was supposed to be what it should have done in the UN Human Rights Council. What they don't do because of the political and economic financial corruption and he'll end. The Geneva summit is an ultra very important alternatives like parallel world. A GERALD. Let's talk a little bit about yourself now. Now despite the accent a u are one of us on true you were born asking. Do you caught me. I say We'll have to start some elocution lessons. What happened to your accent. You completed a joint bachelor's degree in physics and Near Eastern Studies at the University of California. That's possibly where the accent is being evolved in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and then a master's degree in physics In San Diego in seventy five and then you began teaching at the Bar Ilan University in Nineteen ninety-two a professor of political science. See you never came back hand Gerald. Why didn't come back to stay? I came back to visit quite frequently and Well I was two old. My parents decided. That's in the early fifties. Being raised in California was a little bit warmer Sunnier than being in London. So they ask me so I was raised in California and I did. My University Studies in Originally in physics and it turned out that I had spent the year in Israel humiliated enough With that other things I always had this And he said the eight Sahara. I wanted to do something that I found. I always had the political bugging me so I did the Middle Eastern studies aspect At the site. Show that not really a hobby. That is a major issue and I spent. The the transition was gradual. Those were different times where worrying about a job at income was not a particularly high on the agenda at graduate. School was basically free. I did a doctorate at the In the middle of my physics doctorate I went I was asked if I was interested in a fellowship to go to the East Coast. And there's a personal issues involved in that too. There are a lot more Jews in New York. And there are in San Diego California in the nineteen seventies and. I decided that was a better place for me to Anchor myself so I went to Cornell University initially as a one year fellowship in international politics and science technology. I did a lot of work in nuclear proliferation. Research about Which related eventually to what Iran and Iraq and other countries are building weapons? I became a consultant to the American government. Something is accused me of doing for a while. I on nuclear proliferation areas but that eventually led me into then I came through Israel. I've always wanted to make and they did that. I spent ten years bouncing back and forth. Eleven years made Aliyah in nineteen eighty two teaching at Bari. Line and Since then teaching international politics and the the NGO emphasis came much later after twenty years of doing the nuclear and space and other high-tech related international politics. I've had really the the privilege of doing what I want to do. And when my interest change being able to do that finally Gerald can I ask you about your forecast for this? Incredibly Long War of attrition. You didn't think that twenty years after you set up NGO MONITOR THAT. You would still be doing this. And IT IS INDEED. A lifetime's work but not without great achievement not without changing perceptions and indeed policies with Corona virus with isolationism with Brexit with the challenge to the European Union X. Essentially with so many European peoples looking at the European Union for example in Italy at the moment a real resistance against Europe and the potential for Russia and China to be aiding European countries during this time Can I ask you how you think this will shape our world in the future? Will you or your successor. Still be doing the same things in twenty years time or will there be some sort of victory in this. Very painful war of attrition. I'm often accused of being two-handed academic on the one hand on the other hand giving all these answers that are and I'm GonNa do that now to you. I'll give you an optimistic pessimistic image. I don't have a crystal ball and I Have as they say. That's enough trouble. Understanding the past going to the future is even more complicated on the one hand this is. There are a lot of change that are taking place and they were already starting to take place as taxpayers and governments recognized slowly with paint painfully. How much money was being wasted on these types of campaigns the all the western European governments almost all of them from Finland north down to Spain. Even in the South Greece's exception even Italy provided on the order of two two hundred and fifty million dollars for humanitarian aid and Human Rights and democracy dumping it was part of a religion of Post War Western. Europe and civil. Was the the darling that was going to implement it for all? The reasons explained at the beginning because they're outside of politics. Volunteers wonderful people that it had become a big business with massive salaries for the people who ran them with something was largely ignored. If this is the faith in. This is shaken for the reasons that you pointed to. If it is now clear the money is needed for health fighting krona for things inside the boundaries of each country the EU. Then perhaps we will see a change for the better more responsible behavior. It's also linked to the way in which the Israeli Palestinian conflict seat. We've spoken in generalities but all my example of it has been Israeli Palestinian examples the NGO world is obsessed with Israel as the media as the UN for the same reasons. So if you look at the distribution I remember giving a briefing in part in the European Commission matter Brussels on their funding showing that the European Commission is where their NGO funding was going and them. How much more money went to the Israeli Palestinian conflict with a of the human rights issue quasi-surreal in the world and they said one of the members of this can't be right. You must be inventing these data if this current crisis of corona and the crisis of the UN of the EU itself leads some critical rethinking. The budget we may see this part of the activity the client. I don't think it's going to be shut off. I don't want to speak for twenty years but I think even ten years there may be less money going into it. It may be a little done a little more responsibly. But I would be surprised if an answer and the question that gets back to the Israeli Palestinian is still going to be the obsession of so many diplomats and government officials and journalists and the idea going to solve this problem in the way to solve. It is to throw money at at NGOs claim to be promoting peace and human rights democracy and humanitarian aid. And do it blindly as has been done in Europe. That's the pessimistic. Well I'm not sure. The opposite optimistic of the Pesident pessimistic perspective is a this is so deeply entrenched that it will continue. The optimistic perspective is that it is so counterproductive so wasteful. I often ask European officials. You've been in charge of or your your term in office. You have distributed five hundred million euros of picking a number two Ngos of which may be Quarter has gone to Israeli Palestinian groups. What have you achieved? I have never had any European official able to answer that question. Usually they'll say well we'll have to get back to. You ought to ask my people with what we've accomplished but there's never any one of this. No peace certainly. The Palestinians are no closer to human rights than they were twenty years ago. They're killing it oppressing their own people. There is no progress towards a viable Palestinian economy. Despite all the aid for what are they achieve? If the I they now are able to look at that question seriously and reach the conclusions that should be obvious. Then maybe in ten years from now we will see a fundamental change. But I don't go into this optimistically. I think it the best one can say. It's a neutral fifty professor Gerald Steinberg. Thank you very much indeed for joining me today on Johnny Gould's Jewish state and I thank you for asking tough questions and hopefully giving me the opportunity to provide some serious answers so thank you keep doing what. You're doing my sincere thanks to professor Gerald Steinberg founder of Ngo Monitor and to Ichiro Vinnie and Nitsa flutes for making all this possible.

"Day and giving you the context on why they matter you saw the news alerts the CDC is warning Americans that when it comes to the spread of Corona virus quote. This could be bad will explain what exactly that means and what the. Us government is actually doing in response then. Candidates at last night's Democratic primary debate had answers for just about everything but there was one foreign policy topic where the answer isn't so simple. We're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skim this. Today's episode is brought to you by. H&r Block tax pro expert tax. Prep without the office visit we cannot hermetically seal off the United States to alarms and we need to be realistic about that. That's health and Human Services Secretary. Alex as our he was on Capitol Hill yesterday talking about the spread of Corona virus. We'll have more cases in the United States and we've very transparent about that and we will then work. To mitigate the impact of those say health officials say the disease the virus causes is technically called Cova nineteen and they want us to start calling it that so we will in any case as ours. Testimony came on the same day that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Americans to start preparing for more cove in nineteen cases across the US. Possibly in a matter of days. Yes we've already seen a few cases in the US but now the CDC's warning it's going to spread and they aren't mincing words in the words of one CDC official quote. This could be bad. So what is this could be bad. Look like on a personal level. This means you can probably expect some major disruptions to your everyday life people might stop coming to work or sending their kids to school or daycare to prevent them from catching the disease and health officials say as more people are diagnosed. Hospitals could get more crowded. That's not the only problem hospitals could be running into their also quickly running out of medical masks. Which are supposed to be thrown out by doctors? After every use a lot of pharmacies are already sold out and the ones that are available are getting really expensive but health. Experts say as much as the news a scary. It's important not to panic. According to one medical study from China more than eighty percent of Cova nineteen infection so far have been mild and when it comes to keeping yourself safe familiar rules. Apply things like washing your hands or keeping some distance between yourself and someone who's coughing if you have prescription medications in might be a good idea to get those refilled a bit earlier than you might otherwise and it never hurts to have a good supply of basic food staples. So that's how health officials and experts are saying we should prepare. But what's the government doing to prepare? The White House is asking Congress for at least two point. Five billion dollars to help the administration respond to the spread. That might seem like a lot of money. But lawmakers on both sides of the aisle actually questioned whether it was enough so we're watching to see how that funding battle plays out. Meanwhile they're still aren't any medications that have been approved to treat Kobe. Nineteen and the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases says the race to develop a vaccine to protect against it continues. They're going to be a lot of shots on goal for a vaccine. Hopefully one or more of them will be successful. That same agency says this week. It's begun work on an experimental drug to treat people already infected with cove in nineteen so some progress but health officials are saying it could be a year before the early results of that trial. Come in meaning these things take time. So what's the skin the? Cdc is warning that it's not a matter of if but when we'll see cases of Kobe nineteen spread throughout the US. Those kinds of warnings can sound really scary but the good news is in the. Us The CDC is providing up-to-date in vote for people concerned about how to prepare. And what to expect next you can find more at CDC DOT Gov one last word. We've been important parting. Thought from one health expert who spoke to us recently.

At last night's Democratic primary debate the candidates discuss most of the usuals like healthcare and the economy and then and near the end of the night. A topic came up. That hasn't been getting much coverage lately. The city of it live in Syria is facing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. The Syrian regime and Russia are targeting schools bakeries and hospitals. What would you do as president to push back regime and Russian forces and stop the killing of innocent civilians? That question sort of felt like it came out of nowhere but it turns out. The situation in. Syria is actually hitting turning point. And that's saying something because time and time again since the start of the Syrian War in twenty eleven. The situation there has been called a crisis. Mike when Syrian President Bashar al-Assad started killing Arab spring protesters or when millions of people started fleeing from their homes to get away from the fighting. But here's why things now are. Worse than ever. Government troops have stepped up that military offensive shelling residential areas as the advance areas. No ceasefire insight fighting and war crimes on both sides have prompted mass movement of families trying to get out of the battlefield and they still moving the bulk of the women and Children Award defined by displacement. This is the largest movement of people of the entire war. It's kind of a rundown of what's been going on lately. But let's put it in a bit more context here are the stakes the groups. Battling the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad have been mostly corner around the province of That's a northwestern Syria right up against the Turkish border in earlier. Phases of the Syrian war people fleeing fighting could have crossed that border to find safety but since twenty. Sixteen the borders closed. And there's no place for people to go. Nine hundred thousand people have now fled ad-lib and that's just in the span of nearly three months. This displacement has happened so fast that as many as eight hundred thousand people are reportedly living outside lacking shelter and exposed to winter weather. Would New York Times? Reporters visited the border earlier. This month they heard stories of babies freezing to death in the cold. A reporter from the Guardian heard about families suffocating in their sleep because of a lack of ventilation in makeshift tents and one. United Nations official shared other stories of hardship in the freezing winter. Many people have resorted to burning their spare clothes pieces of furniture or materials that did out toxic fumes. Meanwhile back in Libya fighting continues just today. There were reports of twenty one people killed after the Syrian military and its ally Russia targeted schools nurseries and a hospital in a series of air strikes. And the longer that finding continues. More people in ad-lib could be forced to flee. Those are some really horrific details and on such a large scale. It's hard to imagine how the world should respond this week leading humanitarian groups in the US appeal to Americans to at the very least donate to help save the lives of children and families in Syria but bigger picture. The United Nations says finding needs to stop immediately. Un Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez has been repeatedly saying that. He's no military solution for the Syrian crisis and yet diplomatic solutions. Haven't seemed to work either. That's because the Syrian city under attack now was supposed to be a safe place for civilians to live a couple of years ago. Both sides of the Syrian war agreed. Hey let's stay out of the city and keep the fighting in the countryside because we don't a lot of people could die. Problem was experts predicted. That agreement went last and they called ad-lib a quote humanitarian time bomb now that it is fully under attack. It's exactly that yesterday. Us Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo called for another ceasefire ended. Lib But nobody in this fight is showing any signs of putting down their guns. So back to the debate question. Put the South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete. Buddha judge at last night's debate which was what would he do as president to stop the bloodshed well? He criticized president trump for spending too little attention on the Middle East and not working with international partners to bring peace to the region. But he didn't have any quick fixes probably because there aren't any and then he changed the topic. I want to come to something. I promise relates international affairs because Senator Sanders asked me a question. You actually pivoted and started talking about healthcare and didn't get back to the whole question. Senator Elizabeth Warren did and she said the proper way to deal with the situation in it live was to provide humanitarian relief. After years of fighting in Syria and years of failed efforts to end that fighting temporary relief for the people affected by the war might be the best anyone can do earlier in the show. We mentioned that aid. Groups are asking for the American public for help to learn more about it. We've left a link to their fundraising effort.

"We begin with a new twist in this impeachment probe into Donald trump several key witnesses arrested today and these are business and political associates of Rudy Giuliani who were already radar for House Democrats are linked to not only Ukraine to Giuliani's plot to shape Ukraine policy for president trump and that's not all the feds indicting these people because this is quite a development for this whole story tonight before you get into any details consider that these are pretty dramatic arrests of two key witnesses in the trump impeachment probe left room and they have been working with Marie Guiliani partly because of their strong ties to Ukraine so right there tonight before we get any further the basic storyline of this arrest is out of a spy movie they were headed to board a one way flight out of the country when the bi apprehended them last Night House Democrats have been demanding they appear before congressional investigators on the impeachment probe today and tomorrow now while the feds are not saying these men were necessarily fleeing arrest the timeline we already have and this is all brand new shows they were leaving without testifying the key details that were desired about Giuliani and Ukraine investigation that is actually larger than a criminal probe because you know it's a probe into whether the president committed high crimes and should be kicked office and Congress thinks these men new things that could address whether to impeach president trump like how Giuliani pod with foreign governments and how he tried to run a shadow foreign policy which could ultimately be ruled a criminal policy which as you know was designed to are good Joe Biden and help trump's reelection so what we have today is a new indictment from the feds it touches on some of this it's not the only reason they're charged but it does note these are the men helped Rudy Giuliani get meetings with Ukraine heavyweights we already know Giuliani and trump wanted Ukraine to go after the Biden's so a lot of this is coming into plain view now let me show you a couple more facts another reason why this matters prosecutors say they have evidence to convict these men now prosecutors believe they know any thing nick implicate other people in crimes any other people which could in fairness not include Rudy Giuliani or theoretically it could include what each other honey what we know what the feds are going to do tonight and in the coming days they will press these men for any information about any other people and as you may recall that's what this the same New York Prosecution Office did to Mr Michael Cohen another reason this matters well and I haven't even hit this much detail yet because this has got a couple pieces but if you stop right here and said okay that's a lot of different stuff I'm not sure I got it all think about this one fact in this late and links to Donald uh not only through Giuliani obviously but also by following the money the feds are saying tonight both these men broke the law with illegal donations to a trump pack and tried to funnel money to a Russian national wanted to get funds to trump so you take this all together right now what you have is any one of these things quite damning not only for these individuals who is we always mentioned are presumed innocent legally but who are facing a written indictment the paper trail but also damning Mr Rudy Giuliani because the best case scenario for him now tonight is that all this stuff is documented but he is not charged or hit with anything and that's a possibility but even that is really bad because these are the people were carrying out the Ukraine plot which is why they were such key impeachment witnesses and the worst case scenario is that like other people who've gotten caught up in the New York Fed's in these kinds of criminal probes they do know things about other people they start to provide them they start to bargain them so that's the backdrop for this scene today is the men appeared in court in Virginia this hours after they were also subpoenaed the house impeachment inquiry and this is the meeting of course with other trump associates now the top prosecutor New York who leaves the office once run by Rudy Giuliani Johnny says something today that may haunt the White House he says this new indictment this aggressive approach is all about opping election crime texting the integrity of our elections and protecting our elections from unlawful foreign influence or core functions of our campaign finance laws and as this office has made clear we will not hesitate to investigate and prosecute those who engaged in criminal conduct that draws into question the integrity of our political process the integrity of our political process I'm joined by the Wall Street Journal Shelby all day and Julia Yaffe from G. Q. Both have been covering many aspects of this Ukraine scandal as well as other related international criminal and arises good evening to both of you eight me Julia what does it mean that this has so many tentacles but as we just laid out for viewers if you even kind of digest one or two of them there's a lot of smoke can I'll just start with two tentacles first tentacle is the Rudy Tentacle we also had there tentacle off that tentacle today which was revelations that Rudy was using the Oval Office to pressure trump and then secretary of state REX Tillerson to get one of his clients a Turkish banker who was violating Iran sanctions by trading oil for gold instead of money he was using his connections trump to try to get this man released from jail actually in New York as well so I'm wondering how long it takes for Donald Trump to say he doesn't know Rudy Juliani the second tentacle again is the Russian interference the fact fat you know we we had been looking for the for the two years of the Mueller investigation I the gun and now we have yet another one of the many smoking guns now on the rack over the fireplace to mix metaphors churches Russian foreign national one who is funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars through these two Soviet emigrants into trump packs and to Republican candidates and in violation of election and if that isn't Russian election appearance even if it wasn't directly mandated Putin who pressed the red button that said election interference it's election interference wow I mean when you laid out like that how do you put that in the context of what Mr Berman said who of course as I emphasize he holds the office Rudy Giuliani used to leave and he was out there today saying we are not going to tolerate election crimes on our wide well it was it's funny that you mentioned that that was the office Rudy Giuliani used to lead it was also the office that are you still lead at that the trump White House got rid of hoping that they could decapitate that office which has been very aggressive toward the trump administration throughout and you know turns out it's priests all the way down uh well all the way down Stephen Hawking's turtles all the way down reference striking shelby what do you see as important here you've been tracing a lot of these stories well I think two things jumped out to me in this indictment was the funneling of the Russian money but the other thing was that these two men Parnis and and we're working to advance political interest of a Ukrainian government official allegedly we did a big time line video at the Wall Street Journal this week and we laid out all of the twists and turns it's particularly with respect to Rudy Giuliani and his role in pushing for these two investigations the Biden Investigation and the twenty sixteen Russia investigation when you look at this my and you look at him flying to Paris and Madrid and meeting some of the Ukrainian officials that he met with also spoke to the prosecutor former prosecutor general that Vice President Biden helped push out I mean he's been very involved for a year and trying to bring these investigations and the dirt that he claims to have to the surface well now we know more about the two men who were giving him that dirt who were setting up the meetings and they were working allegedly on behalf of a Ukrainian government official tonight who is official what are entering as bad news for Donald trump and Rudy Giuliani who said there's no crimes involved in everything doing with Ukraine to have these Ukrainian American linked officials and businessmen charged today well it's bad news that they're charged it's also bad news for their political agenda because they want everybody to be Biden's corruption they want everybody to be talking about Hunter Biden making money in Ukraine and when you look at this trail and you look at who Rudy Giuliani was working with nobody seems to be talking so much about Joe Biden Tonight Julia having having really reported a lot of this stuff including the way that look business is done ways in different parts of the world and what is considered normal in someplace is is illegal here in the United States indeed there's laws like the foreign corrupt practice Zack which basically say they may want bribes over there but it's illegal for Americans and American companies to engage in that abroad let alone here how much of this is a situation where even if these individuals can all can make a kind of an argument we weren't informed we didn't know everything to the extent that Giuliani in the loop on any of this doesn't he know better yeah but if you look at the indictment and the number of steps they took to disguise what they were doing and you know the shell companies the gas thing that had no gas products whatsoever they knew what they were doing was wrong otherwise they wouldn't be hiding it and donating money and somebody else's name is also illegal to beat this other than flipping oh I don't know I'm not a lawyer you play on TV but I'm not the other thing the other thing I wanted to say though which is another tentacle of this is that Donald trump since the time he was a candidate for the last three years has been openly inviting for New Orleans Shen interference and help from anybody who wants to offer him help right and because now his Justice Department has been deputized to pursue all kinds of I'm sorry witch-hunts and conspiracy theories that that are useful to him and his ego it's now left ironically to the states with democratic political leader ship even though it's Republicans who have always harped on states rights is now left two states to fight election interferences wallace things like climate change etc interesting I am working if Mr Berman in the trump administration can still bring these cases an well it's it's one part of the system working right it's it's the system in one state but a federal system the Federal Justice Department we got all right but we also impress other until Foreign intelligence services into shoring up this wild conspiracy theory to help his boss talking about attorney bar and shelby Mr Bar figures into all of this in very interesting ways at some Democrats calling for his refusal name check by trump on the incriminated call him but we have seen no sign that he actually will recuse himself for that there would be a special counsel again he's he's shown to be very loyal to president trump at least for now I think another piece of this that that jumps out is a lot of people were talking about how he shouldn't you know a lot of trump defenders were saying he shouldn't be associated with Rudy Giuliani what they're doing is two very different things Giuliani's working on this biden piece bar is working on the two thousand sixteen Russia probe a and maybe Giuliani is going a little bit rogue this indictment shows that Giuliani wasn't going zero because some of the things they were advocating for for example the ouster of the diplomat Ivanovich Giuliani was behind that effort he has admitted to Wall Street Journal for being behind links here which are now some of which are in the indictment that makes it much harder for the White House to cast rudy aside although they have cast lawyers aside including lawyers indicted in this district as I mentioned they may they may try we'll see shelby Julia I wanNA thank you..

"AM six forty more stimulating talk. It is the dark secret place Brian suits in here on till eleven o'clock. Of course because the chargers are on AM six forty. We are just here on iheartradio. But the the news doesn't care the news rolls on so tonight. We'll talk about of course, front and center the resignation of secretary of defense James Mattis, the sudden resignation of Mattis and his it would appear pre written resignation which will get to here in just a second. But the effect of this right now is really I cannot overestimate the concern that's happening in from from London. Especially in the Kurdish area of Syria, and some of our NATO allies the glee that's happening in Russia and China and others because just like me, our our foes in Tehran and Russia and the potential near peer future foes in China had tremendous respect for Mattis. They knew that Madison knew what he was doing Mattis is not just some squad leader who got four stars Madison's, a strategist and a planner and a thinker and that he had their number, and they knew that as long as Madison was secretary of defense. A cogent intelligent experienced person was in charge of the Pentagon in a administration with with the sadly, very few people with extensive foreign policy. Experience Mattis really stood out and was chief of staff. John Kelly now leaving HR McMaster gone now for almost a year. Now, the the White House seems to be without a foreign policy runner though. It doesn't know biggest. Here's the thing. When you're the one that doesn't know how to vote how a boat operates. You're you. Also don't know when you don't have a rudder. And so this White House has precious little foreign policy experience. And what it did have is leaving by the end of February Madison's final day is going to be January twenty eighth. Meanwhile, more more closely. More close to the battlefield Brett mcgurk who has been a Middle East on voi- since since I was in Baghdad in two thousand four do then four and five he abruptly resigned today as well on a professional level, I should say on a personal level. I think he's always been a bit of a grand standard there. There is no doubt, the mcgurk is the most experienced hand on the ground that we have in the Middle East and that he is done. A tremendous job behind the scenes putting together the so-called SDF coalition the Syrian Defense forces Syrian Kurdish coalition, so he's gone now. So what prompted all of this. Well, we we we have to go back to the the immediate cause was last Friday a week ago yesterday, the president spoke with president air to one of Turkey, and whatever Erawan said to him. Convinced him that it was time to rapidly pull out of Syria and. So the announcement was made on on Tuesday that there would be an immediate pull out from Syria. The next day madness released his his resignation letter. And I will read it to you verbatim. Because I think it's extremely important that you hear this letter. He says from the office of the secretary of defense dated December twentieth. Two thousand eighteen deregistered president I have been privileged to serve as our country's twenty-sixth secretary defense, which is allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the department in defense of our citizens in our ideals. I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the key goals are related international defense strategy putting the.

"Policy really goes all around here i i just think it's it's is his absolutely fascinating the way this is a unfold but i mean the only state in the middle east were muslims could enjoy freedom of religion against all restraints including from their own fellowmuslims if you want all the truth is the state of israel and i'm thinking not good for nikki haley in president trump they seem to understand the dynamics of of leverage because it my estimation you disabuse me where you think i'm world you have to use the tools in weapons you have while you have them versus letting the other side shame you into not using them even as that other side mobilizes its own weapons against you otherwise you let yourself become the sap they see coming from miles away isn't that fair to point out i think that it fair to point out by the only thing i would add alan at work it's not only a country where muslims have the right to practise our whatever wait a practice but it also the only country in the middle east where christianity is actually growing now when i say israel the only country in the middle east were christianity's growing i'm not talking about the palestinian authority areas where for example since the imposition of the palestinian authority and cities like bethlehem the proportion of christians have has declined ninety percent then on top of what when people say hey this will ruin the peace process the answer to that is what peace process we have a generation 25 years of professional piece processors who have absolutely nothing to show now whenever anyone talks about a final settlement to the palestinianisraeli conflict they talk about how i mean there's gonna be some sort of division of jerusalem and the notion that uh after that settlement parts of jerusalem arkhan be recognized as israeli he is a name so simply by saying hey we're just going to recognize the reality that's the best way to have peace when the pieces calibrated to reality rather than some palestinian fantasy that they can somehow reverse time uh i would i signed amazing though is that you have a large country of democrats in this country is wells saying these long relating international law and he's breaking years of precedents but the reality is.
