He confronts Jake tapper about this is well, this talking point that you have to be able to debunk immediate with your friends. And no. Maybe Trump didn't collude with the Russians. But Paul Manafort definitely did He dealt with this guy constantly, Kalinic. Except for the fact that constant clinic was an Obama administration source. So Gates it's Jake Tapper Jake tapper on it and says, Hey, you got any evidence about that? Check this out. It was very clear through State Department cables from the U. S embassy in Kiev that Constantine was also a high value asset of the United States government. He was providing information to the United States government.

State Department officials. Recording exactly what they did and didn't do with Mr Clinic. Yeah, That's kind of a good question, right? If Kalim nix this big time Russian spy Manafort was dealing with And why was he dealing with the Obama State Department? And why haven't we seen that information? Because the Obama State Department has all that. Why have we seen them? Because we live with a bunch of dishonest, You know, fools, and the media can't seem to get the story right

"Your choice to do it yourself or engage the service of a machine of a computer written program or anything in between so there's so many choices and i think it's it's interesting i- indelibly i see the fact that the markets are rallying straight through this as if it never even happened. I see that as an indication that most they're doing it on the assumption that has been programmed into them. That things are going to be better six months from now and don't get me wrong. It's not all machines. There are people trading as well and more. Do it yourself do-it-yourselfer sarah a huge money market managers who human the humanly manage or they use machines and programs and combined it with their own experience and instinct. But it's pretty clear based on what we saw in the markets yesterday and today that the majority thinks that things are going to be better six months from now than they are now with regard to economy with regard to jobs with regard to small business with regard to everything that goes into our quality of life now speaking of machines and perhaps a raging against the machine machines weren't watching yesterday as events unfolded at the us capitol. But it did happen. Right is the turning point. How can it not be in every comment. I'm i've seen from legislators from us. Representatives and us senators in every comment. I've seen and i will be glued to ken buck this morning when he joins you at eight thirty five because i saw an interview with him last night where he said. It's clear to everybody that what happened. Yesterday is totally unacceptable and we need to join together regardless of party and and create a new atmosphere in this country Create a possibly a feeling of partnership In working together to make our future better instead of working against each other and you know and that goes back to a basic market concept and that is the markets hate uncertainty whether you can look at the markets being up today and you can say that the much of the uncertainty has been removed the uncertainty over who the president is uncertainty over the majority in the senate and as we've been saying over the past couple of weeks. Don't take those comments that now there's a one vote majority in the. Us senate is the end of the world. it's not take sixty votes to pass something in the senate anything major and as you said the margin is so slim it could really go either way and perhaps if we're looking for something positive to come out of all of this of what we saw was an out of body experience when it as we watched The assault on the us capital some saying salt on democracy that perhaps it will serve to turn tuned down or toned down as the case may be some of the vitriol and the outlandish rhetoric that we have heard over the past four years.

"We're back to the same issues And problems with our electoral process and Somewhat lost in the shuffle. Sadly the fact that well Let's just say the democrats are pretty much have of the run of the board Given the fact that that Those georgia runoff elections for those two senate seats did indeed a go. Democrats so will these conversations even be will they even be had under this new administration. Well that's why my hope is. It's it's going to take somebody like donald trump to lead this by he. You need somebody that has. The gravitas has the resources that has a strong base of support with him. Because if somebody like him does not take it up. And i'm not sure who else could take it up. You're absolutely right. The people are going to bury. The democrats are going to bury it. they don't want it. I mean who doesn't benefit. Democrats have election reform in fact the only election form. They probably advocate is for more mail in ballots. Absentee ballots because that is exactly what these election fraud has been really focused on and there are a lot of fears that you know if if there is not real election reform in these states that it's going to be very for republicans to win national office seventeen now thirteen ten k.

Four years You know it's easy And and in in flawed for anybody to take a look at any single event particularly when it's happening in real time The real test of the legacy is wait a few years. What do we do now. We we presidents from fifty one hundred years ago And when we do that we do a lot more objectively There's a lot of emotional You know angst right now. And so i would caution anybody Whether it's a republican or democrat This is not about anybody like You need to look at the the full picture. I mean what could be drunk. I guess he is from this. And what gave rise yesterday that frustration and anger that underlying sentiment that exists across america. Remember seventy four million people You know voted for the president because they felt like The system that the the government the establishment was not working. Still not working. And so i think when you take all this collectively you can't you can't evaluate the presence legacy today based on one single action. That's not what a presents us about. the democrats will try. They'll try to attach this and say you know this. Is you know the president's legacy..

"The courts are not about fairness the courts are about a process and they will follow that process. All the way through it comes out with the wrong outcome or untruthful outcome And and that's unfortunate thing about our courts today. And that's exactly what happened in the case of pennsylvania. Hopefully the us supreme court will be forced. you know to take up the texas lawsuit. There's just too much support behind it for not to even consider it. I think it. Would you know 'cause a lot of constitutional legal question If it doesn't address it what other strategies or options does the president have yes. It is quick question. The president actually had several believe it or not and again you know. We never get to this point in our electoral process. And what the constitution You know outline is how this process is done and most people don't realize yes while you vote in a state for president you're actually going for a board of electric slate of electors. You're not voting for candidate and so one of the examples that the president is a strategy to us is if enough electors in the electoral college. Believe that this election is hanging over. A cloud of fried. Then they don't necessarily have to vote for joe biden and this is important. A lot of people think that donald trump needs to get two hundred seventy electoral with the electoral college. As long as joe biden. Doesn't get two hundred seventy total the then it goes to the house whereas aleutian. So it's not the votes. Don't have to pop. You just have to ensure that. Joe biden does not get two hundred seventy electoral votes. So that's that's one option. The second option is After the electoral college this over fourteenth and congress has to certify the vote on january six. And there's already discussion by some members in congress that saying they're not going to support the certification because they believe this election was held in a fraudulent manner And if congress doesn't certify well then we're opening pandora's box because there really is no Mechanism if essays because it's never happened before So we're in for. I think they continued process where the president is going to continue to fight. I said it over a month ago. He's not going to concede I still believe that. He won't concede and and he has every right to fight the by every means necessary to prove his case to the american public. And i think he's doing really good job of it. Well and i think now more than ever before the american people need tab the last word in this presidential race. Am i wrong on that point. No absolutely and and that's what your vote is. Your vote is your voice and i think to make sure that every legally cast ballot. Every single vote is counted is important. I mean look if i were biden or his team or his supporters. I wouldn't want to go into the presidency under this cloud of suspicion and not have the the full credibility of the weight of the office. You know behind. I wouldn't wanna americans out there even if it's thirty percent forty percent you know Of americans believe this election was held in a fraudulent matter..

about Watergate you know the Republicans were against the president until I mean with the present only work against them I know I know what it looks like there's been no movement here now a couple of things real quick Rick gates apparently is trying to reduce his sentence because he was he he provided a lot of information was up front and it just came out that he was offered money not to cooperate but they don't reveal who he was offered money from yeah that's pretty major huge I mean that's absolutely absolutely use that you were offered money not to cooperate I you know I don't really have a ton to add that other than you would actually want to know who offer that information and then that would put that person in a world of legal heard as well well I also have to tell you not from a legal standpoint but watching arguments I mean some good arguments or some bad arguments I've seen some really bad arguments like Kevin McCarthy was complaining that no president has ever been

election if you've already been alleged to have interfered with an election or welcome to interfere but it made me laugh that you look at that and nobody else goes dude a wooden I'd give them a little more salt on a collision warning is I mean the jokes on the rest of us even though it's a preposterous state you know what the process arguments statement he's going to get away with it and you know there we no repercussions for saying that and he'll be able to point to what happens in the Senate and say look I was right okay by the way Lisa pages once I got the names I combine Peter stalking

Stone unturned? Trumps adviser on trial
"As the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump continues. The start of the trial of his longtime associate is likely to provide him with more discomfort comfort laundry stone flamboyant and controversial political strategist own for using aggressive tactics discredit losing candidates. He's worked As a campaign advisor to a number of Republican presidents including Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan stone formed a relationship with the current president for decades ago. He I advised Mr trump to run for the White House in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight but all the polls are showing that I win or do very well in this election. I'm not happy with what's happening. In the country that friendship mentorship torsion even was the focus of 2017. Netflix documentary called. Get Me Roger Stone. Those who say I have no soul. Those who have no principles are losers serve. Those are bitter losers. Mr Jones. EXACT ROLE IN MR TRUMP's 2016 campaign has long been a source of speculation particular over his contact with wikileaks the release of material about presidential contender. Hillary Clinton in January this year. Mr Stone was indicted by Robert Mueller. The special counsel on seven counts they include obstructing an official proceeding witness tampering and making false statements to Congress about his communication with wikileaks and the trump campaign lead. Not Guilty to these charges. I will defeat them at CNN. HAD BEEN SO SURE MR stones indictment was coming to the network had a camera team outside his the house when the FBI turned up for dramatic early morning rest. This is what the first sounds that. Roger Stone woke up to this morning was the FBI pounding on his his door and shouting John Faz. Men Are. Washington correspondent had a similar hunched to C. N. N.'s. But he made his move a month earlier. I reached out to Roger Stone because I had sensed that his indictment was possibly coming and I wanted to hear from him before he went undercover. As it works I wrote him an email. I said I would be down in Fort Lauderdale one weekend soon. If he's free for lunch take him out and And he accepted house lunch. The lunch was a blast. He is in entertaining storyteller. He's charming he's funny. He has a ton of stories. It was a two hour lunch. That felt very fast. Okay before we get into the lunchtime conversation Let's go through with. The charges are against him. He is facing seven charges. Five of them. Uh are making false statements to congressional investigators. One of them is obstructing government proceeding and one of them is witness tampering I believe he tried to get randy. Credit Co who is a longtime friend of his New York radio show host and a sort of as outrageous on the left is as stone is on the right. He tried to induce credit co into not testifying and I think he you threatened to kidnap Randy credit goes dog. Roger Stone's pled not guilty to all of those charges. How how is the dog? I think the dog's fine critical appeared. He did testify. He showed up with his dog. He was photographed with the dog outside the Capitol. It's a I think the dog is a little white dog named Bianca. Last I heard Bianca was fine. Okay okay all these charges that Mr Stone faces have to do with Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference. Is that right yes. Roger Stone presented himself to the trump campaign campaign as a conduit to wikileaks. He said he was in touch with. Julian assange now after the investigation started. He said that in fact he wasn't that was all bluff and posture turn hype and that all he had been doing monitoring wikileaks as twitter. Feed Robert Muller's indictment says that that's not true in that he was actually in touch through a cut out with wikileaks. And what are the stakes. Here what would happen to Mr Stone if he were found guilty These are serious charges. He faces serious prison time if he goes down for these sixty seven years old and that's Facing years in prison at that age is no picnic. You say he was a charming guy with lots of stories. I mean the public persona of Roger Stone is. He's a kind of Kenny often. Cutting political operative to did you get a sense from him about how he operates when you spoke to him. Well he is a political operative the stories that I liked most. He got gotTa start in Connecticut Politics. He's from Norwalk Connecticut. which is which is down along the coast and he said for his his first campaign for Connecticut? State Senator Who on the train platform is a commuter town into New York? Norwalk is and he would be there in the morning with fliers for his candidate and fresh coffee and then he would be either in the evening with fliers for his candidate and freshly mixed Martinis. It was such a a charming portrayal of a bygone world of political campaigning. But that's where he got a start but I mean this this kind of charming and gracious stuff is not really what he's been known for in in more recent decades. No No. He's a dirty trickster. And he's the first one to admit admit that he's a dirty trickster I think he hone those skills working for Nixon's campaign which is famous for using those sorts of tricks. That's his specialty. That's the sort of thing he does. There's and he's he's really unabashed about it so his his ties then to to president trump. I mean how far back do they go so he is known. Donald Trump for forty years. Their connection goes back to Ronald. Ronald Reagan's nineteen eighty campaign in New York Stone arranged a visit to New Hampshire by Donald Trump in nineteen eighty eight. When he was initially flirting with running for president he was connected with the campaigns? In in in ninety six and two thousand I think it was when when trump sought the reform party nomination and his connection to the to the two thousand sixteen campaign pain starts quite early on to so he has no trump for for a very long time but on the other hand the investigation the Muller reports when it's somewhat by now in in the rear view mirror I mean. How much do you think Mr Trump and his team will be will be watching this trial? How much do you think could change the story as we now know it reopened that chapter? I mean I think they would. They are going to be watching can get very very closely. It's true that the report is done but there was a lot of of stone activity in the Muller report that was redacted what I assume is Roger Stone activity that was redacted and it may well come out this trial. I think there are a couple of things that that the trump campaign will be worried about number one. The trials should show whether Roger Stone was in fact talking to wikileaks and whether when he said he wasn't that was all bluff and posture that that was that was in fact the bluff and number two is whether whether Donald Trump lied Robert Muller. You'll remember that trump did not sit down for a verbal interview with Robert Me answered written questions and answer to one of those questions actions. He said that he didn't recall discussing wikileaks with Roger Stone. You may get some testimony from Steve Bannon and Rick Gates about that and so if I were at trump trump camp I would be watching this trial very nervously. And what about Mr Stone himself when you met him. What did he say about the possibility that he would get caught up in Mr Melissa investigation? Well all I ask them exactly that question at lunch and he said it's a it's a line that I still remember. He said I don't worry. I make other people worry whether he would repeat that line today as his trial looms. I don't know but it was a it was a wonderful bit of bluster at the time About the substance of the charges. He had a very. I want to get this quote. Exactly right from transcript. What he said is there is no evidence or proof and no one can honestly say that I had advanced notice of the source or the content? The exact release date of the wiki leaks material either stolen or I should say allegedly stolen and allegedly hacked to my mind that is a very lawyerly. Non Denial Denial He also said during our lunch that you know his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee was basically truthful and he may have said some things that were wrong but they were immaterial and inconsequential in the indictment against him alleges. That's not not the case that his false statement for both consequential immaterial well regardless of what happens with this trial and and presuming. Mr Stone is available to take lunch dates. Would you take with them in a heartbeat anytime. Why is that because he has? He has good stories and he has a central role in this in this drama. That's unfolding right now. He has insight he has history talk about. He's an interesting conversationalist John. Thank you very much for joining
House releases transcripts from key witnesses in Trump impeachment inquiry
"We are now starting to see the actual testimony from the depositions in the impeachment inquiry so far the transcripts and they are as damning as expected for the president and and his allies now Republicans wine for weeks and weeks of the fact that depositions were being held behind closed doors despite the fact that many of them were actually attending those very same hearing the president tried to get out ahead of the release of the word for word transcripts today by saying they would be faked and Republicans should release their own indicating indicating that he was clearly not happy with what was about to come out well today we got the first two transcripts from forward top State Department official Michael Mckinley and crucially former US ambassador bastard Ukraine Marie Ivanovich we already know a lot about what McKinley testified about including that he said he resigned his post in part because of quote the failure of the State Department urban to offer support to foreign service employees caught up impeachment inquiry McKinley who was senior advisor Secretary State Mike Pompeo also testified again under growth in this deposition that he told not pompeii about his concerns multiple times before he resigned which makes what pump said last month so much more interesting listen listen to the way the pompeo gives himself absolutely no wiggle room on this question Mike McKinley third me well for a year and a half I chose him my head people tell me he was a great foreign service officer in fact he served America wonderfully for thirty seven years he had in fact had the office that was just just behind mine had a door that he could walk in any time and say whatever he wanted you know from the time that embassador yvonna bitch departed Ukraine until the time that he came to tell me that he was departing harding I never heard him say a single thing about his concerns with respect to the decision you never ask not once not once George did ambassador McKinley say something it to me during that entire time period that's interesting so maybe set it outside that time period or maybe McKinley is lying or maybe pompeo's lying the story though that has has told these depositions of of someone who was in the way of the corrupt quid pro quo abuse of office the President Rudy Giuliani were running to try and squeeze Ukraine to manufacture a dirt the president's political rival particularly in that of the ousted US ambassador Devante vish Ukraine whose career was a casualty of that scheme she testified that she learned from and Ukrainian officials that Rudy Giuliani plan to target her Ivanovich was asked what she thought President trump meant when he said on the phone call with Ukrainian president that she was quote going wing to go through some things Ivanovich said I didn't know what it meant I was very concerned I still am. She testified that a concern senior Ukrainian official told Oldie quote told me I really needed to watch my back former ambassador also told Congress the same Ukrainian official wonder about quote to individuals from Florida Mr Parnasse and Mr Freeman who were working with Mayor Giuliani they were interested in having a different ambassador to the post because they wanted to have business dealings in Ukraine or additional additional business dealings I didn't understand that because nobody the embassy had ever met these two individuals now the president gets to appoint ambassadors and he gets to recall them but in the case of Ambassador Basser Uganda Bitch let's remember her position and removal are also at the center of a criminal case that's currently being brought by the US attorney in the Southern District of New York doc against two men who are associates the president's personal were John Juliani reportedly paid Guiliani at least half a million dollars who hung out Yankee Games among other places with with Rudy who got prime seats at a twenty thousand trump rally and who represented themselves to Congress in an official letter as members of the president's legal team and and let's remember that part of the charges against these two men love Parnasse and eager fruman is that they were giving donations to a member of Congress as part of this sprawling effort to get rid of ambassador of rich so that they could corruptly install from the associates to promote their business interests in Ukraine Ivanovich was standing being in the way of making Ukraine more corrupt on behalf of president trump and Rudy Giuliani and I should tell you we just learned tonight that one of these guys parnasse seems to be ready to cooperate with congressional investigators Reuters reports Parnasse is prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators PARNASSUS lawyer has confirmed that that me see news joining me now from Warren What we learned today so he told me legal reporter for Buzzfeed News and Tasha Berkshire National Security correspondent political NS NBC contributor. Natasha let me start with you on the Parnasse news his old lawyer had been the president's old lawyer John Dowd who'd written a letter being like he's part of the team and he's not going to show up and do anything he's now jumped don't John Doubt and now he's GonNa cooperate is that what's happening. Yeah Chris I mean it certainly seems seems like Parnasse is angry he's angry that the president has said that he doesn't know who he is he feels like the president has completely mischaracterized their relationship and you have to be inclined to believe a bit because there are so many photos of them together over the last two or so years a political events at gallows at fundraisers Parnis and firmin were everywhere and they surrounded the president at many pivotal moments so what we're seeing now is they've opened the door to cooperation with the congressional committees that doesn't necessarily Sara Lee mean of course that it's going to happen because a lot of the documents at the Congressional committees want are in the hands of the FBI which of course rated partisan ferments belongings as part of their indictment it also is remains to be seen whether or not their lawyers are even going to his learned this case has even going to let him testify because he's in the middle of a criminal probe but this does indicate at least a shift for now in how he perceives the president and trump really hasn't learned this lesson that you know when these people are are under scrutiny and he continues to criticize them his former allies and says I don't know them well they usually have receipts Zoe what did we learn today in the Ivanovich Ivanovic testimony in terms of the nexus between this sort of strange plot that was hatched by nuts room in for variety of reasons perhaps APPs personal business reasons as well as Ingraham themselves the president and the president and Rudy Giuliani's attempt to squeeze Ukraine government for for dirt on their political what we saw was perspective from yet another witness in the impeachment inquiry sort of explaining how they learned that there was this other her channel between the White House and Ukraine that was unofficial not sanctioned involved a cohort of non-government officials in this case Rudy Rudy Giuliani left parnasse eager freeman who for months had been traveling around trying to set up connections and Ukraine in an effort to dig up dirt on Joe Biden trying to discredit the Mueller investigation but all while making entrees into very official circles in Ukraine to the dismay dismay of the career civil servants who you know whose job it was to establish those formal channels between the administration and these foreign government entities and what we heard what we saw in the transcript was the former ambassador Marie Ivanovich saying you know learning about this back channel and being perplexed and concerned -cerned by it but not really seeing away out and being told that if she wanted to keep her job she needed to ingratiate herself with the president and not make waves about this both the one in one point she testified she was told to tweet US support for the president. I mean what what's fascinating here and attach you had these sort of comparative means of of of conducting yourself Marie Ivanovich the lifelong foreign service officer who's there who's trying to like steer American policy and then the Parnassus Fruman and Giuliani's of the world old who are wheeling and dealing and taking meetings and doing God knows what God knows who's behest and those are the people president is listening to and who had the imprimature of the entire hire American state behind them exactly Chris and Marie Ivanovich testified that this wasn't something that the State Department could just ignore they felt really hamstrung owned by the fact that this dual foreign policy track was taking place and at one point she said the Ukrainians didn't know who to talk to didn't know whether we represented US policy whether they should be listening to Giuliani and Parnasse Freeman and the rug really felt like it was being pulled out from beneath us we have to remember also that this is a very sensitive moment what what has been a very sensitive moment in Ukraine for the last five years since the Russians invaded eastern Ukraine and at this moment there trying to negotiate peace in the east with the russian-backed separatists separatist so for the aid to be withheld at this sensitive time was extremely troubling to the Crohn's and on top of that they didn't even know who the interlocutors were are there was supposed to be communicating with fast forward to mushy Ivanovich getting removed recalled from Ukraine someone that they really trusted now they have no choice really okay but to try to negotiate with the president and the best way that they can which is Zilenski you saw on that phone call kind of saying to the President Yes we'll investigate ah yes we'll do what you want essentially to try to appease him because again Ukraine faces an existential threat to its east and they are trying to navigate that right now the best way they can we're also getting a lot more back story on the origins of this I think deranged saying conspiracy theories about Ukrainian involvement in the two thousand sixteen election the idea that actually the DNC hack was a Ukrainian op that they conspired to frame Russia for it doesn't actually make sense when you sort of square it up but this this article near that Manafort was actually spreading that back in twenty sixteen it's been germinating and sold to the president time and time again what do we know about uh-huh so over the weekend buzz feed at CNN received a new cash of documents from the Justice Department then it was as hundreds of pages of records of notes that were taken during the investigation and in one seer set of notes from Rick Gates who had been the deputy campaign manager Paul Manafort's right hand man Rick Gates told investigators that basically as soon as news broke in two thousand sixteen the DNC had been hacked that wikileaks had these messages and they were going to release them. Paul Manafort was immediately saying it wasn't Russia it was Ukraine and Michael Flynn who was at the time a senior advisor to the campaign later became trump's short-lived first national security adviser also was immediately saying adamantly it wasn't Russia it wasn't Russia look at Ukraine so we had at the time three years ago to senior officials in the trump campaign trying to you direct the narrative away from Russia towards Ukraine it raises all sorts of questions of who they were talking to us who's ear they had and it's the theory that it has really persisted notwithstanding the findings of the US intelligence community that it was Russia that orchestrated the hack of the DNC that was

"Of the hour. It's going to be Tom fit in from Judicial Watch. What a what a great organization, they do an amazing job investigating. But by the way, hearing from people who are saying that the caller Beverly was talking about Paul Manafort was arrested and taken directly to prison. Not true. Not true. He and Rick gates were arrested and they actually were put on house arrest. Which means they get to stay there own homes. Manafort, did something I if he broke a gag rule or something, and I don't have it in front of me right now. But I know that he's been in solitary confinement. But it was brought upon himself. But the suggestion that he was arrested at his house and taken directly solitary confinement is not true. He was put on house arrest, and I don't have time to research the entire thing. But in the couple of minutes during the break, I was able to find that. That's exactly what happened something happened where he was house arrest was revoked and he ended up, and I don't know if it was more charges being filed in there are more charges, obviously. Because there are two separate things going on federal and in southern district of New York, I believe, but yeah, no. He was not taken from his house in the middle of the night and thrown in prison. Now, I am not say beverly's bad. She's not I think that they did everything they could to try to catch anybody who had any connection to Trump whatsoever. In a lied to the feds. So they could arrest them in the Paul Manafort was arrested on allegations of of money laundering, and being an unregistered agent of a foreign nation had nothing to do with Trump. And it wasn't anything connected with emails or collusion or anything like that. But no again, I don't know of any case where anybody was arrested and thrown in prison for for six or nine months as you've been in prison. Yes. Has he been consolidating? Does he look like crap? Yeah. Was you will dinner wheelchair recently? Yes. I don't know. All the details of all Manafort case. But it just didn't happen to where he was stolen in the middle of the night. It is one eight hundred five zero one seventy Eddie joepags dot com. Let me go back to the phone lines Adeline three it's going to be Patricia in Florida. Patricia what's going on? Yes. Hi, Mr Pex pledged to up to you, sir. Thank you. I wanted to say some things I we all know what Bill Clinton a like, okay to garbage, and I just out of breath. I know for a fact that Bill about me sleeping with somebody hill. And we somebody. Go to jail I like to see arrested and deported to another country. We don't need them all he was their craft that they're like where we're where would we deport them to who who wants Bill and Hillary Clinton where we sending them to the worst place. You can. Okay. And if I could get I wanna ask you if we could get it for Titian up and get people's I'm disabled, I would walk around with my walk to my name and get it by Titian sewing, Hillary and Bill in jail and this investigation Mowlem, you'll investigation money was tax pays wasted money. And that could have been put towards homeless people shelters at the beginning of soldiers back. I would say oh Patricia couple of things I want to say first of all you say garbage. Like, my mother does which is kind of funny. What part of New York are you from? I'm in Florida. I lived in Hatton where right? Well, that's what I figured I'm from Long Island, originally, my mother's from Jamaica, queens. Will you say garbage like my, buddy? Like, my brother. So having said that no you can't get a petition going to have somebody arrested. That'd be horrible. Can you imagine? If the neighbors just don't like be the go around and collect collected petition and the police come and arrest me. So no that doesn't work that way. But I do believe that now the motor investigations behind him. The president now has the ability to go to the department of Justice and say, hey, find out what's going on. Because Hillary the Hillary Clinton campaign as this investigation continued it turns out there's more information on them. And he has every right is the chief executive to ask them to do the investigation. I gotta run because the it's very echoey phone. But I do appreciate you calling in Martin you liked that she's a garbage the garbage. I love that reminded his anti. Exactly, right. Exactly. Right. So it's that's very cool. Patricia we love you. And we're glad that you called in. I just thought it was very equity could hear myself a lot in your phone. But no, don't go around to your neighbors and try to petition to have somebody arrested that would be a bad precedent to set in our country. Let me go back to it. It's gonna be line four and Chris. Defer in Maine. Hi, Christopher what's going on. Hey, how's it? Going limited dream what's happening. So I wanted to call in when you were speaking on the Muller probe, and you know, I got a theory on that along with the information that came about with Hillary is that there's a good chance that they came up with enough to re reinvigorate that investigation towards her could be why there's no indictments coming. But my theory on it is no matter what the Democrats win the molar probe is released fully the underlying evidence. There is going to be used in tach the southern district in York. They're going to use it any way, they can spin it. It doesn't matter. If it is or isn't evidence, they're gonna find a way to make it a win for them somehow. Well, of course, they are. They're already trying to spin it to where the president's obstructed the investigation. He wouldn't be interviewed Christopher thanks of Maine. We love to be on a main Monday through Friday. We don't have an opportunity yet. But we're working on it. They have to spin it. They've got the media. So the they've got the legacy media the news idiots. They've got the fake news idiots. I should say news. The news. People are good. But fake news and good. You've got Hollywood. You've got music. You've got academia, the spin is on they'll say, he obstructed it. Somehow he somehow force them to force their hand to release it threatened. Somebody some way put had he called Putin's said Vladimir do me a favor, call Muller. I mean, they're going to have all sorts of crap. They're going to say it doesn't mean it's true. And we as the American people are smart enough to know that we have been hearing for two years how this was gonna be the end of Trump. And now that it's not either they're gonna look like absolute idiots for hanging their hat on this or they'll have to come up with something. Within a week. Mark my words on this. And if I'm if I'm right tell your friends listen to the show within a week. You're going to start hearing leaks in the media about how Robert Muller is this Robert Muller is that he's not really the guy. We thought he was Robert Muller had a close relationship with this person and Robert Muller, somehow, he's compromised. He's not not the guy who should have done. It. You probably going to hear speculation as to who the special counsel should have been not Robert Muller, and it should have been this person. Instead trust me, they'll find a way to bring this guy down the guy that been holding up on high for two years as the beacon of truth at integrity. Will somehow be sullied by the media? They cannot just take the loss. They.

New Zealand shooting highlights problems of white extremism
"Just three months ago with reporters, the president said he hadn't read the New Zealand killers manifesto. So in on this Trump declined to weigh in on all of that. But as for the president's claim that white nationalism is not a rising threat. He may want to consider recent FBI figures and other studies showing right wing extremism is a growing concern from the neo-nazi violence on the streets of Charlottesville to the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh last year. Now, the mosque attack in New Zealand, it is a threat wolf that cannot be denied. Absolutely, correct. Our Jim Acosta at the White House. Thanks very much. Joining us now democratic Senator maisy Hirono of Hawaii. She's a member of the judiciary and the armed services committees. Senator thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. Well, let's begin with the massacre in New Zealand. The president says he doesn't believe white nationalism is a rising threat around the world. How do you see it? Another instance, where the president doesn't pay attention to facts if act white nationalism extremism is on the rise. And in fact in after nine eleven president. Bush went to mosques and went to see the Muslims and hate crimes against Muslims dropped now with this president as he talks about a Muslim ban. And all of that, we know that hate crimes against Muslims in this country have gone up. Mr President, are you listening? Do you have any idea that your words truly matter? And so as he continues to. Act as though this is not a problem. Why is it that as a result of what happened in New Zealand that the mosques in our country are under heightened alert? Why is that? So I know that New Zealand is in mourning right now, they're in a state of shock. I did have a chance to talk with the ambassador to the United States from New Zealand ambassador banks, and I express my deepest condolences with her. And and we shared the concerns that we both have about the this kind of white supremacist extremists terrorism that is on the rise as you know, Senator several of your democratic colleagues. They've pointed the finger at President Trump accusing him of actually emboldening right wing extremism. Do you agree? I think the kinds of language and the words that uses just add fuel to the fire and so for him to take absolutely no responsibility for the continuing divisive. And hate the kind of language that he uses is is a testament to the fact that we have a president who just doesn't care about the words that he uses, but he must know that the worst. It uses are very harmful. That's why he does it. It really excites. His base. Apparently, did you see the interview he did with Breitbart in which he boasts that his base includes the police the military bikers for Trump by he was going out of his way to say, you know, the things get bad. There could be some serious problems down the road. What did you think of that? I thought of that as the appalling language coming from the president. And it seemed to be an invitation for people to take matters into their own hat hands. And and commit the violence. That's what it sounded like to me. And that's the kind of threat and the kind of language he likes to use. And to think that the that he thinks that our military is so undiscovered that they're going to commit these kinds of violence. But the fact that he says these things shows us where he is. At and where he's at is not bringing the country together.

And the lie. She told Christine Blasi Ford absolutely nothing at the end of the day.

Is that is that what's going on here? I said early always smell it. Couldn't be true. This is some fanciful reaction of a left-winger wanting something be true. And hoping it was true the mega hat wearing white males one attack black or gay person throw bleach on that in their minds. S the stuff that goes on the same stuff to Covington Catholic boys had to go through those boys went through hell and whether report came out about five or six days ago. That salmon and all the rest of boys from Covington Catholic high school did nothing wrong. The problem was the black Hebrew, nationalist. And the Indian that those were the problems, of course, the media completely ignored that because it doesn't fit all the news that fits they print if it doesn't fit they don't print. Let's continue now with Bill and Virginia Beach Virginia Beach. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show Bill, please go ahead. Hey, Bill like your name. Thank you. Thank you for your patience. Can you hear me? Okay. I can hear you. Now. I can hear you. Go ahead. Okay. Well, I was I was calling not to be critical. But a in a way, I'm being critical of all conservative talk shows. I believe we're definitely in the book of revelation in the bible, God took time to tell us. What's going to happen? I think he did the partly. It says blessed are those who read and those who hear the words prophecy and keep those things which are written in it for the time is near I think he did it. So we will not react. So panicky over the crazy things that we're going to see like this infanticide. And all these crazy things. I mean, we need to reacted morally. But this is the transgressor party not to Progressive Party. There's nothing to do with the morals with this party. So so we need to realize this is revelation, and we need to speak up for the board. So people will be will be drawn to Christ. When they realize that this book has been written in Tulsa, what's happening. And it tells us hated the only piece you're gonna get crazy world is going to be in the next world with the Lord. What would the Lord say if he was walking around today about partial birth abortion, and the harvesting of organs from babies, what would you say about developing babies being murdered and Planned Parenthood clinics? What would he say about that? I've better here. But the Lord would obviously realize that anyone who is core anything so horrific is being judged very harshly in the when they're judged and the whole point of the deal is now that the ones who are the rebels and the ones like act like Satan, the rebel the greatest rebel so far. I guess you'd say are going to be judged harshly. And we're going to see all the with anyone that joins that crowd is going to be judged harshly to. So this is a this is something we're being watched. Then we're seeing how we how we live and how we react to go. What about the Democratic Party, and or the Republican party? The Republican party is campaigning is Planned Parenthood for my entire life. But when in charge of the congress, they give to Planned Parenthood. That kills babies five to seven hundred million dollars a year, and you know, the Republicans acquiesce to the Democrats and getting this done to me, it is one thing to be in charge of killing babies, which is Planned Parenthood. How about the parties like the Republican party and the Democratic Party that funds the operation? What did the parties? Are. There were angels from revelation twelve one third of the angels got kicked out of heaven when he tried to take over heaven. Angels. That's a lot. And they said that they were turning the disembodied beaming. Minor standing main habit possess people on the earth. And at this time. We don't know who is really a true moral person ordering these disembodied demons, my understanding is they can't live forever through Jesus. I gotta run. Thank you for your call. And we have to kind of faded out there. But let's let's continue coming up in about seven minutes is Wayne Allyn root about the emergency proclamation and about so much more. Also coming up in the bottom of the next hour. Steve Gorn head him on about four or five months ago. This guy's a climate expert. He's going to tell you how the green new deal is one of the worst things not just for the American economy. But one of the worst things for American science, the Democratic Party doesn't care about science. The science of what you can get rid of oil companies and natural gas company and have a function economy the science that says a developing baby in the womb becomes a human being at some point the Democratic Party doesn't care much about that. Let's continue with more. Stay tuned for more. Bill cunningham. The great American live with.
"rick gates" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"I'm Peter Barnes with Bob moon. President Trump's decision to pull troops out of Syria came under renewed pressure after a suicide attack claimed by this state, the terrorist group, the president said was affectively defeated the vice President Mike Pence spoke at the State Department on Wednesday an echo that sentiment. We're bringing our troops home. The caliphate has crumbled, and ISIS has been defeated. Let's talk more about this. Now with Bill ferries, Bloomberg news, national security, editor and Bill. One of the things I noted is that the vice president was speaking after word had come in of that suicide attack. And yet he did not mention that attack when he said ISIS had been defeated. It was a very strange turn of events. And we are all kind of scratching our heads at that. You're right. The vice president said ISIS has been defeated. And even President Trump really within about forty eight hours of his statement to the similar statement last month started walking back a bit saying that the US would continue to target ISIS on its way out and the administration line had been to say when we say ISIS is defeated. We mean that it's lost ninety nine percent of its territory, but there are estimates from the Pentagon, including that there are maybe twenty thousand thirty thousand people who were either ISIS fighters or involved in ISIS, still in Syria and Iraq. Who have gone many of whom have gone underground? But it's clearly not a completely defeated a movement. And I think that attacked the deadly attack that killed four Americans than sixteen others shows that you really haven't been we haven't been able to completely contain this this group, you would have thought that ISIS would have just laid low before it renewed its attacks in Syria. Can you can you help us? Explain it's hard to know what the strat ISIS strategy was whether this was something that an opportunity they took advantage of or if it was something that they deliberately targetted with a with a bigger geopolitical goal in mind. So I think it's going to be hard for us to know where that's at. You know, I think the big question has been if the US pulls out where does that leave places like northern Syria that have been under US and and Kurdish control does do the Kurdish allies of the US get targeted by Turkey. Does that give President Assad of Syria and his Russian-backed forces more ability to move in and retake that territory or not that's that those had been kind of the big questions after President Trump his decision to withdraw. And we really even I think three weeks later. Don't have a clear idea of what the next steps will be if US forces start to start to pull out. All right. So now what I think, you know, we're still looking for evidence that this this attack changes the calculus for President Trump at all. I don't think it will. But it does highlight the risks. That is advisors have been fly. Into him. That says listen if you pull out and ISIS is able to regroup and to carry out more widespread attacks like the one that just did you're going to be doing what you accused President Obama of doing in Iraq, which is quitting. And pulling out before the fight is over Bill. Thank you. That's a Bloomberg news national security editor Bill ferries. You're listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power on Bloomberg radio. I'm Peter Barnes with Bob moon. Bob behind the headline grabbing developments in Robert mothers Russia probe one potentially pivotal witness has been quietly cooperating for almost a year on multiple investigations. In fact, so quiet has he been he might have slipped off your radar. Let's bring in Kevin Whitelaw. Bloomberg news Washington deputy managing editor. And kevin. Oh, yeah. There is Rick gates. That's right. This Rick gates is a not a household name. Unlike some of the other figures who we have heard a lot more about and more. From during this whole thing was Paul manafort's deputy for a couple of months, but then even after Manafort left, the campaign gates stuck around had various campaign roles, and then stayed in touch with Trump figures really pretty much as far as we know close up to the time. He ended up getting indicted by Robert Muller on several different charges including conspiracy. So what is gates telling Muller and his team? That's a really big question. Frankly, we don't know most of it. But obviously, he was present at a lot of moments would have had access to various documents, and and other things so he could be a very valuable witness in the fact that Muller has not moved to do anything to of bring this to a close the way he has with others hasn't moved to the sentencing phase the way he tried to with former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. They haven't done the sentencing the way they have with Michael Cohen. They keep sort of extending this cooperation period, which is usually a sign that the cooperation is. Significant non going and if they're planning on continuing to use him going forward. So you know, we've only gotten titan. You little glimpses here and there, particularly whereas it as it relates to Paul Manafort of the kinds of things that gates said gates was a witness and manafort's trial, and even though gets himself had a lot of personal history that that the defense attorneys for Manafort were able to attack sort of doing some demonstrators credibility still ended up being an effective enough witness that metaphor was convicted on a number of counts. Refresh my memory here was he in on that now infamous Trump Tower meeting where they were getting dirt on supposedly he wasn't. He wasn't in that meeting. But that doesn't mean that he doesn't have knowledge surrounding that meeting. So there are a number of different points where as metaphor deputy gates would have been looped in on things. So the Muller probe has been a black box for for a lot of people in and there have been glimpses. But most of these glimpses that have come out have been from defense attorneys, and one of the things that's going on here is that gates gates was was was indicted, and then he flipped he cut a deal with lift prosecutors early on his attorneys aren't talking they're not talking to the press. They don't appear to be talking to other lawyers. So, you know, not even Trump's lawyers really have any idea. What gates has actually been telling Robert Muller? And so that's sort of. It's interesting problem that Trump layers have they've got windows into bits and pieces of the Miller pro, but there's actually big chunks of it where they don't really know. Exactly. What Muller knows? How is he figured into the Manafort proceedings if at all, yeah. Well, he he'd been he'd been a witness for the prosecution during that trial did a lot of damage to to manafort's claims. And and made it clear about. A number of the conversations that Manafort was involved in with relating to some of the the Russians and Ukrainians and others that were that that he was doing work for. But you know, the defense had a lot to to ask him about when it came to to again. So it was it was other kinds of of cheating and conspiracy came to an affair that that gates had. So there was there was a lot of a lot of soft tissue. Kevin, thanks. That's Bloomberg news Washington deputy editor Kevin Whitelaw. You're listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power on Bloomberg radio coming up. The Trump administration is considering several candidates to head the World Bank. As it.
"rick gates" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"Well, good evening. Once again from our NBC news headquarters here in New York day, seven nineteen of the Trump administration day eighteen of this government shutdown as you may have heard the president was on television tonight. So were the Democrats, and we'll look at all of it in just a moment. But we want to begin with the latest revelations in the story that came roaring back earlier today the Muller investigation, specifically, it's what we learned in error from Paul manafort's lawyers his legal team. The new details in a document filed by manafort's lawyers. There it is some of the lines were redacted blacked out. The problem was all those details are revealed again by copying and pasting them into any sort of new documents so mistakes happen. But this one revealed some pretty stunning news that Paul Manafort shared campaign polling data with a prominent Russian named Constantine Kalinic and lied about it the Muller team and. Media profiles have described Kalinic as someone with longstanding ties to Russian intelligence as you see there. He's a former Manafort partner tonight, the New York Times reports that quote, Mr. Manafort and Rick gates, the deputy campaign manager transferred the data to Mr Colom Nick in the spring of two thousand sixteen as Trump clinched the Republican presidential nomination, according to a person knowledgeable about the situation. Most of the data was public. But some of it was developed by a private polling firm working for the campaign. According to this person, Mr. Manafort asked that Mr Colom, Nick past the data to Oleg Dera, pasta, a Russian oligarch who is close to the Kremlin. And who has claimed that Mr. Manafort owed him money from failed business venture, the person said it is unclear whether Mr. Manafort was acting at the campaigns behest or independently trying to gain favor with someone to whom he was deeply in debt. Today's filing from manafort's lawyers. Also says he and Kalinic met in. In madrid? And that they may have discussed something billed as Ukraine peace plan on more than one occasion. Which prosecutors say Manafort lied about as well tonight. The Washington Post reports quote, Jason Melania spokesman for Manafort said the Madrid meeting took place in January or February of two thousand seventeen after the presidential campaign was completed. Today's filing from manafort's legal team mistake included is in response, and this gets complicated to the Muller teams allegation that Manafort violated his cooperation deal by lying to the feds..
