Tom Fitton: What Elon Musk & John Durham Have in Common

"And Elon Musk slash Twitter. Elon Musk and John Durham, what on earth do they have in common? Well, you know, they're both on the wrong end of the left. You know, and under the Trump administration, special counsels, we were all supposed to fall down and worship them, right? Robert Mueller. Oh no, John Durham. He can't be trusted. And he's going overboard and prosecuting the Clinton gang. Excuse me, the Biden gang. Or I get confused sometimes as to what we're supposed to be prosecuting since they're all tied together. You know, the same thing with Elon Musk. I don't know where he stands on politics. You know, my guess is that he has, well, the evidence is he supports free speech, which is kind of like ought to be the price of entry in terms of public discourse these days. But activist investors were the left told us where the savior of the corporate world. Having these activists come in and demanding accountability from corporations on issues other than the stock price. And here we have Elon Musk doing something similar with Twitter on behalf of First Amendment values by all accounts and you would think he's Genghis Khan coming in and trying to destroy the Internet. But both need to do a lot in my view. Obviously Durham has been slow. Three indictments include one which resulted in a kind of a disaster of a plea deal. The two more recent ones have been substantial, but if they're the end of what he's doing, it's going to be week T, they're the beginning. It could be great. And I must, you know, he's putting his money where his mouth is, you know, billions of dollars of investment in Twitter to have a say by all accounts and how Twitter is run and to try to rein in, I would hope the abuse that Twitter continues in terms of lying about why it's censoring conservatives

How Pundits Are Inflating Trump's Odds of Facing Criminal Charges

"This week saw americans of all political humor's bewitched by wishful thinking some seeing donald trump after many stumbles finally on the path to victory in states and join texas and support of supreme court lawsuit which seeks to stop george michigan wisconsin and pennsylvania from finalizing their election. Results president trump on twitter. Call this case quote the big one and others foreseeing delectable prospect of rule breaking tax dodging constitution shredding precedent on trial there are credible allegations of donald trump has in tach fourth bankruptcy for four instances of possible obstruction of justice that robert mueller outlined his report on russian interference in the election. Meanwhile the president and his family actually have a whole lot more to deal with. New york's attorney general is investigating the trump organization misled investors by inflating assets as court filings and news reports hinted investigations well underway certain. Team ounce within the talk of sphere. We should probably expect that. There will be charges against him that he will be indicted on in this case. We're probably going to trial. I think is an excellent chance that he will be found guilty. Pius found guilty. There's an excellent chance he'll wind up in prison last month. In the new york review writer lawyer and former federal prosecutor amish kadoorie reviewed the various arguments including his own for the likely prosecution of donald trump but kadoorie also conceded that in fact. Such speculation is quote insane among his critiques of the media. Commentariat that there are too many former prosecutors himself included represented and that there are too few defense attorneys who know better than anyone had a scrambler prosecution and that no one is willing to say we just can't know. I guess it's not a great way to get twitter. Followers or cable news hits. But it's just fundamentally true. There are lots of things we don't know and facts could change. And you know. It's very rare that i see anyone saying that which brings us back to august. Virus vans sadness subpoena last year to dorsey bank as part of its investigation into president. Trump's business dealings times says the bank complied with that subpoena. When that news broke a lot of people were strongly suggesting there might be a bank fraud. Case what the manhattan. Da is looking at here is overstating the value of your assets to get loans understating the value of your assets when it comes tax time that kind of thing is straightforward textbook fraud. It's much easier for prosecutors to prove those kind of charges love. Compare the two and then you know. He's in huge trouble. If they're not the same a bunch of people were saying. This is not just a bunch of people but a bunch of prominent former prosecutors with significant followings on twitter and cable news contributor gigs. I was really taken aback because i found fundamentally very misleading. You basically said the speculation was insane. That you've done this at doj and it simply not how fraud investigations are conducted. Yeah no that is the word i used in the wall street journal insane in particular about the suggestion that had been made by former acting solicitor. General under obama. And you'll cut yo. I think it's totally possible for all of this to come out before the twenty twenty election terms of new york's prosecutors getting this information on in acting on it in so that was really surprising to be coming from someone who is at least supposed to know better. According to convicted trump lawyer michael cohen trump inflated his assets when it was opportunity to do so deflated them when that was profitable. And if cohen is right doesn't that mean that a prosecutor could just compare one accounting book with another find the mismatch numbers. And you know it's over no So it's a very reasonable supposition but when you're investigating financial fraud case the fact that some documents some numbers may differ from one set to another is often just the start of case you have to figure out why they differ does matter why they differ. Who prepared them if their lawyers. Accountants and auditors involved. What did they have to say about. The relevant figures trump did not have a huge business. Right this is something that i think david farrell hold. The post has been very good at illustrating for the public. And it's fairly small organization but that organization still had lawyers had an accountant that is going to substantially complicate any investigation. If the lawyers overstepped and they can't prove that this was a conspiracy with which trump was involved. Then he's not liable that's correct. We don't even really know what trump's involvement was in the preparation of any of these figures that would be the crucial question. You'd want emails if they exist and of course he notoriously does not use email. You'd want to know whether he had spoken to people and provided them potentially with oral instructions now in the case of cohen. That is what he says right. That trump instructed people to falsify these figures it's not a great witness is not a great witness at all and so you would want people to corroborate that you'd want much more than michael cohen. Ideally if you're just playing the odds the odds usually disfavor an indictment right. People do things that look problematic. You look a little closer. There are some times innocuous explanations or maybe you just can't build the case to prove what you think really happened so charges are not brought. There may not be a criminal case against the president. Even if the justice department looks aggressively at what we know so far and digs up additional things and that's itself a big. If you say that there's a bunch of suctions built into this genre of reporting the reporting on the president's future prosecutions that baffles skew. Your i mean. One of the assumptions is that there is a criminal case. It's just you know which one where do you find it. Another option is that sivan's will definitely be charging the president. Are you talking about the new york magazine. Piece that said considering the number of crimes he has committed the time span over which he has committed them and the range of jurisdictions in which his crimes have taken place. His potential legal exposure is breathtaking though certainly one of them. I think the la times columnists that you mentioned that assumption is also built into his piece. There was a piece of politico on december third about trump's pardon power that said well. He's got all this criminal exposure in the states and you know criminal exposures kind of a term of art just means like the risk of potential criminal charges. It is not really that informative because a lot of people have come criminal exposure. A lot of times and never get charged. And you know vance's office in particular. I say i find it really strange that this assumption has sort of taken hold at all because his office history presuming complex white collar. Cases is quite checkered including

This is why they won't come back. This is why the Newsmax is of the world grow.

You're allowed to engage sides and you hear people's opinions and then people could go out and do their research and learn even more. Hunter Biden. Has issues. He's gonna have issues. With the odds being that his father is going to be president. Are we going to see his father get involved. Remember, you're not allowed to get involved. They want to pass laws Tell Trump he couldn't get involved. Regarding Robert Mueller, and he never did. And, of course, Robert Mueller spent three years trying to figure out what happened with Russia. And the correct answer is nothing happened. Nothing happened at all. They made it up. That's gonna take us into coronavirus. And what's going on there. With this covered relief bill. Which the answer is maybe nothing. Maybe nothing because the White House wade in. They want to see a $600 direct payments, but people I could cost you court says, and Bernie Sanders and even Josh Holly, Republican from Missouri. Want to see $1200?

He is on the intelligence committee. And said, Russia, Russia Russia and was or we know that he colluded and, of course, Adam Schiff was saying We know that he colluded, but nothing ever came of it. When asked on a news report. I think I think this was CNN about cutting ties with this woman with this Chinese spy. His answer is I didn't know she was who she was in terms of being a spy, but let's remember.

Jordan comes three years after Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian ambassador. During the transition from the Obama administration. This past May Attorney General Bar sought to drop the case, saying Flynn's lies were not material to a legitimate counterintelligence investigation.

What Trump Might Do With His Remaining Weeks In Office

"Decisions for their last weeks in office, writes my guest journalist Garrett Graff, he says, so imagine what might happen in a post election period when Donald Trump, a president who has spent four years demonstrating his lack of interest in norms and practices of a democracy. Retains all the powers and authority of the presidency and officially has nothing left to lose. In an article on Political magazine graph lays out some of the norm busting actions Trump may take in the days remaining in this presidency graph wrote that article just before the election. Since then, President Trump has broken other norms by refusing to concede the election. Making baseless allegations of widespread voter fraud and pursuing legal challenges. Trump is also standing in the way of a smooth transition by blocking President elect Biden's access to the funding allocated for the transition process and blocking access to classified information, such as the presidential Daily briefing. It was supposed to be granted to a president elect. Paragraph also wrote a recent article in Politico magazine about what Trump might do. After leaving the White House. Graff is a former editor of Politico magazine and is a contributor to wired. He's written books about Robert Mueller's 10 Years FBI director A history of the secret bunkers built to protect government leaders in case of nuclear attack and an aural history of 9 11. He's also the director of the cyber initiative at the Aspen Institute. Our interview was recorded yesterday. Paragraph Welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me, Terry. Let's start with a couple of the what you consider most norm breaking things President Trump has done so far to interfere with the transfer of power. The biggest one has to just be the simple fact that he has not yet accepted the projected winner of the election being Joe Biden. This is A very different situation than we faced in 2000 with the Florida recount. The state victories across the country are definitive, their decisive And Joe Biden looks like he's actually on his way to a comfortable victory in the electoral College and the fact that now more than a week after the election Donald Trump has not yet accepted that he's not yet given permission for Republican leaders to accept that and not yet given permission for the U. S government to accept that is deeply worrisome. There's a second level of his norm, breaking that we are already beginning to see which is one of the things that I had speculated about before the election. Which is widespread firings of senior government officials housecleaning if you will, among top national security and intelligence leaders. In a way that is worrisome from the National Security's perspective amid a transition. We've never seen a president in a lame duck period like this. Fire. For instance, the defense secretary and this is injecting Ah lot of uncertainty and instability into some very key American institutions at a moment where you are already facing uncertainty and instability and made a presidential transition. Attorney General William Barr has given federal prosecutor's approval to pursue allegations of quote voter tabulation irregularities in certain cases before results are certified. But, he added. In terms of investigating voter fraud, species speculative, fanciful of far fetched claim should not be a basis for initiating federal enquiries. So what does that mean? Because you could argue that all of Trump's claims about voter fraud, our species speculator, fanciful or far fetched? Yeah. And on the one hand, it seems a little too early to know whether this bar memo is just sort of bluster and performative Tioga give Donald Trump a little bit of cover as he Carries out these, askew said. Sort of species, the court filings and court arguments around the country around voter fraud, all of which have been turned aside unanimously by courts across the country state after state. And there is indeed no evidence of any widespread fraud and certainly no evidence of any fraud anywhere close to the level of the victories that we are seeing. Joe Biden pile up in states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia. At the same time, though, there is reason to be worried that Bill bars memo might beam or than just hot air just a few hours after Hey, issued that memo. We saw the head of the election crimes unit at the Justice Department resigned in protest on But that's a That's a worry some statement by someone who is presumably in a good position to know what Bill Bar might be trying to do with that memo. But we haven't yet seen any evidence of that bar memo appearing in court across the country in investigations carried out by the federal government. Marquess for the

6 Russian Intelligence Officers Charged In High-Profile Cyberattacks

"Officers are facing federal charges in connection with a series of high profile and destructive cyberattacks. The charges, detail hacks targeting the 2017 French elections and the 2018 Winter Olympics, among others. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is here to tell us more. Hi, Ryan first. What do we know about the defendants and what they've been charged with? The Justice Department says that these six defendants are all current or former officers with Russia's military intelligence agency. That's the GR EW. It's the same agency that was behind the hacks in the 2016 U. S election. Now there's no allegation in this indictment of any hacking tied to the 2020 vote, the one in the inn Ah, a couple of weeks. The defendants in this instance face seven counts in all those include hacking, conspiracy, wire fraud, computer fraud and identity theft. And this is for a really stunning string of cyber attacks over the past five years, U. S officials say this is the single most destructive and destructive Siri's of cyber attacks that have ever been attributed to just one group. What were those attacks Tell us about them? Well, it's a long list. It includes hacks in 2015 and 2016 that targeted Ah, Ukraine's power grid. Those knocked more than 200,000 customers offline at one point or as one U. S official said Today, it turned out the lights and turned off the heat in the middle of an eastern European winter. There's also a devastating attack known is not Pecchia that began in Ukraine and spread across the globe that crippled companies and industries and hospitals. It cause billions of dollars in damages, including here in the U. S. There are hacks targeting the investigations by British and international authorities into the use of a Russian nerve agent to poison a former Russian spy in the UK. That was the episode involving the Spice Sergei Scribble and a few others write. Each of these incidents has been widely reported on their own. It's interesting to see all of these people tied together with all of them exactly right, And there's actually even Maurine the indictment their cyber attacks that targeted the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. And then there's the hack and leak operation against the 2017 French elections that targeted the political party of France is now president Emmanuel Macron. So it is really quite a list any insight into why the defendants allegedly chose those targets. The Justice Department says that all of these hacks furthered Russia's interests further. Russia's Geo Geo political aims You look at Ukraine Russia has been in a grind in war with the government there in the east in the 22 18 Olympics. Russian athletes couldn't compete under the country's flag because of a massive doping scandal. In the case of the nerve agent poisoning, British and international authorities had pinned the blame for that attack on the Kremlin.

Now the head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, John Dimmers, said today that Russia Stands alone in the sort of destructive cyberattacks that its agents conduct.

So there is a big question of just how effective bringing charges like these are But Justice Department officials say it's important to put the weight of the U. S government behind these sorts of allegations. It helps expose what hackers are up to, and the methods that they used. It also makes clear to the international community what Russia is doing.

6 Russian Intelligence Officers Charged In High-Profile Cyberattacks

"Federal charges in connection with a Siri's of high profile and destructive cyberattacks. The charges, detail hacks targeting the 2017 French elections and the 2018 Winter Olympics, among others. NPR Justice correspondent Ryan Lucas is here to tell us more. Hi, Ryan first. What do we know about the defendants and what they've been charged with? The Justice Department says that these six defendants are all current or former officers with Russia's military intelligence agency. That's the GR EW. It's the same agency that was behind the hacks in the 2016 U. S election. Now there's no allegation in this indictment of any hacking tied to the 2020 vote, the one in the inn Ah, a couple of weeks. The defendants in this instance face seven counts, and all those include hacking, conspiracy, wire fraud, computer fraud and identity theft. And this is for a really stunning string of cyber attacks over the past five years, U. S officials say this is the single most disruptive and destructive Siri's of cyber attacks that have ever been attributed to just one group. What were those attacks Tell us about them? Well, it's a long list. It includes hacks in 2015 and 2016 that targeted Ah, Ukraine's power grid. Those knocked more than 200,000 customers offline at one point or as one U. S official said Today, it turned out the lights and turned off the heat in the middle of an eastern European winter. There's There's also also a a devastating devastating attack attack known known is is not not Pecchia Pecchia that that began began in in Ukraine Ukraine and and spread spread across across the the globe globe that that crippled crippled companies companies and and industries industries in in hospitals. hospitals. It It cause cause billions billions of of dollars dollars in in damages, damages, including including here here in in the the U. U. S. S. There There are are hacks hacks targeting targeting the the investigations investigations by by British British and and international international authorities authorities into into the the use use of of a a Russian Russian nerve nerve agent agent to to poison a former Russian spy in the UK. That was the episode involving the Spice, Sergei Scruple and a few others write. Each of these incidents has been widely reported on their own. It's interesting to see all of these people tied together with all of them exactly right, And there's actually even Maurine the indictment their cyber attacks that targeted the 2018 Winter Olympics. In South Korea. And then there's the hack and leak operation against the 2017 French elections that targeted the political party of France is now president Emmanuel Macron. So it is really quite a list. Any insight into why the defendants allegedly chose those targets. The Justice Department says that all of these hacks furthered Russia's interests further. Russia's Geo Geo political aims You look at Ukraine Russia has been in a grinding war with the government there in the east in the 22 18 Olympics. Russian athletes couldn't compete under the country's flag because of a massive doping scandal. In the case of the nerve agent poisoning, British and international authorities had pinned the blame for that attack on the Kremlin. And in the case of France's elections, the operation there fits into Russia's geopolitical goals. Now the head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, John Dimmers, said today that Russia Stands alone in the sort of destructive cyberattacks that its agents conduct. Here's a bit of what he said. No country has weaponized. It's cyber capabilities as maliciously and irresponsibly as Russia.

"Former special counsel Robert Mueller is pushing back against criticism of the Russia investigation by a former aide who says a special counsel could have Dunmore in a statement today, Mueller says, in part when important decisions had to be made, I made them I did so as I've always done without any interest in currying favor or fear of the consequences. I stand by those decisions and buy the conclusions of our investigation. The rare public statement from Mueller is his first since he testified before Congress in July of last year. It's a response to a new book by Andrew Weissmann that suggest the team did not aggressively pursue some angles out of concern that President Trump could fire them and close down the operation.

"Even the president does not claim that Stone is innocent of all these crimes on ly that he should not have been pursued in the first place, because all this stems from the alleged underlying conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia's so very interesting statement put out by the White House last night. And the reaction from Democrats has been swift. Tell us about that. Well, Trump says Stone was treated very unfairly. He now, of course, is a free man. But critics, including these Democrats in Congress, called this clear quid pro quo. A gross abuse of power on the part of the president. Just a quick review of how all this came to be back in 2016. Of course, Stone was the conduit between the Trump campaign and Wiki leaks, and Robert Mueller, the former special counsel indicated just a month ago that he now thinks that Trump lied to him in his written answers about this, and then stone lied to Congress to protect the president. And now AH jury convicted stone Trump is now sparing stone from prison again, Trump because all of this hoax And witch hunt Mohr collusion. Critics, of course say otherwise, and that's where things stand. And the president, of course, has not been afraid to use his power to grant clemency or two commutations before he's done quite a few of these. Well, he's done a ton of these mostly political allies. Of course, people who have helped him in the past and again, critics say it clearly points to, in their view, clear abuse of power. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said there seems to be there needs to be rather some sort of Ah law that prevents Fitting presidents from getting involved in cases that involved there Presidency directly.

"Thanks to our friends over at the center for constitutional rights writes vincent warren and ian head sharing with us now. The information about the race paper is really important. Our government has a history of profiling rolling in tracking peaceful protesters and mischaracterizing them as terrorists and potential threats to our democracy. You can see the actual. FBI files of dr dr martin luther king junior malcolm megs mabel williams and the black panther party for evidence of that last summer another report was leaked focusing focusing on so-called black identity extremist this was dated august two thousand seventeen and was compiled by the domestic terrorism analyst ellis unit that this report said quote the f. b. i. assesses it is very likely black. Identity extremists perceptions of police brutality the against african americans spurred an increase in premeditated retaliatory lethal violence against law enforcement and will very likely we serve as justification for such violence incidents of quote alleged police abuse have continued to feed the resurgence in ideologically motivated motivated violent criminal activity within the b. i. e. movement so first of all. There's no alleged. Police abuses very documented the police abuse and second black identity extremist movement. I didn't know that was such a thing or was it something that they are just creating now. All this is so damn familiar as i said my conversation with vincent warren <hes> or as he said more accurately power is indeed replicating itself now what what are we to do about russia and any other foreign entity that attempts or succeed in interfering with either our elections process or government overall now. I don't have all the answers but i can tell you what my steps have been is wanted to hone my own skills back checking. We may get all of our news and information online but that means we have to be diligent about confirming the information we received and the information we disseminate <hes> the other thing which i've said here before is that we really have to know our own values and judge candidates and the information that we share based upon those values news rather than following someone else's agenda and lastly. If we want people held accountable we have to demand it loudly. If you want the president impeach- then you need to declare it in vocalise it to the persons elected to represent you if you want <hes> your state government or our federal government meant to have a plan to prevent russian interference in elections to really focus on the subject of mullah report then we have to demand it shouting outing or shaking a fist at the TV angle fixed nothing we have to take action. We have to vocalise beyond our circle of friends. We have to communicate munich eight to the people who represent us like i say before. How do they know what you want. How are they going to represent that you in congress. How are they going to represent your voice and hearings if you're not communicating with them so you need to be in this constant communication whether it's tweeting leading them emailing their offices writing a letter.

"All the things that you a big boy. Who is the <music>. Welcome back to sunday civics. We just finished our conversation with vincent warned from the center for constitutional rights and his no not not to think of the state of play as cowboys versus. Indians is a good thing to keep in mind right now. Everyone is holding muller in high regard inhaling his stellar career but as we just heard he himself was the subject of a lawsuit seeking justice for marginalized and target groups now were you also intrigued. Did this race paper situation. <hes> what's in it why it exis- why it's heavily redacted and why a judge wouldn't release and unredacted version asian the center for constitutional rights began that case working with color of change using the freedom of information at so i talked to ian head at sea cr dr who has significant experience with foia requests foyer the freedom of information act and he also coordinates open records project at checkout check out our conversation the freedom of information act we hear that use a lotta typically for journalists but it can be used in a lot of different ways race to uncover a lot of different information and ian head who is a senior legal worker at the center for constitutional rights works on policing or racial justice on immigrant rights and prisoners rights issues but he also has a significant experience in freedom of information act in open record requests in general ian welcome to the show. Thanks for having me so. I wanna start where we start all of our guests interviews with telling us the story of your first civic action and and i've been trying to think of something and i know that there are early examples that i just can't think of because my mother is very civic like minded and i really got a lot of my politics and kind of i think moral standpoints you wanna call it that from my mom <unk> who was one of the early vistas back in the seventies with with a program that put people for a year at minimum wage to serve different communities around the country and she's always been kind of just just someone who is out in the streets protesting and i know you didn't ask me about my mom but i'm starting there because i'm trying to figure out well now that makes sense because for a lot of people there i civic action they can remember doing something with one of their parents or even both of their parents so i know there was something but i can't think of it what i what kind of pops into my head head is being in in the in the mid to late nineties in undergrad college going to a protest against against police brutality in DC and it was a really really big protests in a really powerful march and i think it was my first time on my own own my kind of being part of a group of us from <hes> from my college going down and getting in the tweets and doing something kind of action oriented like that you <hes> the lesson for the day talking about the freedom of information at explain lean-to <hes> our our listeners are class if you will what is the freedom of information act the freedom of information act was a federal law so a national law that president lyndon johnson signed in. I believe it was nineteen. Sixty six <hes> and it allows anyone and when i say anyone i mean individuals corporations organizations <hes> <hes> there's no limit undocumented folks. There's no limit to who can file what's called a request under the freedom of information act and so can you can request information about different parts of the federal government whether it something from the FBI the federal be over investigation in a big arm of the federal government or something small like an office within say the department of homeland security or this the secretary of state right. There's a couple of different some places that you can't make requests for the most part anyone can make a request. It's free to make put your question and i know i personally in the center for constitutional rights really encourages people to request so that there's there can be some transparency that we are kind of asking almost demanding manning the government for transparency on as far as how works and and kind of giving a check on what the government is doing in different from parts that are doing and the same sorry the same thing is <hes> law in all fifty states as well so there's a separate set of of laws that each state has some are better than others where you can request a similar information so my context and some of other people listening context of freedom of information may be you know reporters who are requesting information from the federal government from an agency or even in state and local government in order to follow along story. I'm to dinner uncover and sort of break. The news of some <hes> <hes> issue that has occurred and this report is trying to tell the story but as you point out it doesn't just have to be a journalist or i'm an interested party that we individually can <hes> make a freedom of information request yeah exactly and i think there's amazing reporters orders and journalists out there who are using <hes> foyer the freedom <hes> information act <hes> in incredible ways in covering important things <hes> <hes> but i'd say that a lot of the time you know that's the journalists doing it for their story or maybe the newspaper doing it for what's important to the newspaper and what the center for constitutional rights thinks is important. <hes> in supporting is whether it's everyday people were especially grassroots organizations community groups who want to to get information that journalists might not be interested in yet you know they might become interested in it but they needed for whether it's their membership people in their neighborhood neighborhood or coalition the coalition group and they they needed for different other people across the country working on similar issues whether it's prisons immigration detention mission policing whatnot and so <hes> what the open records project of this constitutional rights kinda sets out to do is not file foia is <hes> for those people <hes> but link with different community organizations different activists and journalists well and lawyers and support their work in putting being together requests answer. Some questions do trainings and so forth. How have you used foia to further. Read the your way so there's a number of different foia requests in litigation that i've worked on. I think one of the most recent really kind of powerful interesting ones. This is one that we did with them. Color of change and it was color change came to us they had followed a couple of small requests in two thousand sixteen and they wanted to kind of file more <hes> a kind of re strategize and talk to us about good strategy for filing foia requests around surveillance of black activists following the killings of michael brown eric garner in two thousand fourteen in the protests many other people unfortunately in protest after that and the surveillance that they knew was happening from talking to people on the ground from other media reports that that happened at that appoint so in two thousand sixteen we filed this kind of similar bigger but targeted for your request to the FBI the department of homeland security DHS <hes> <hes> regarding getting more information on that surveillance. Why were they doing it. How are they doing and what were they saying about it internally and who filed that didn't really get anything back but i wanna see that. COC NCR like the request itself can be an advocacy tool right so you don't necessarily even need to get information back to start using a foia request as a way to get media attention talk about the issue in our request. Just the stories of different people who have been surveilled or who had gone to demonstrations and come into contact with police were told in the requests. You don't necessarily really need to do that in every request you file but this was a strategy of you know. We don't need to wait for the documents to talk about. What's happening right so we did that. We didn't get back so that means <hes> we went to court and we represented a CO see color change in in court and then we were able to get in front of a judge and get what's called a production order which means the the agencies need to start producing documents documents to us on a regular basis. We started getting documents reviewing those documents and in two thousand seventeen we started coming across some really problematic and scary.

"Say oh. We don't need this. We're not going to say oh we were wrong. We're not gonna do that. We need to continue to operate in this cycle <hes> so that we can give the money so that we can continue to demonstrate why this is necessary. I wanna shift years for second because you're talking about the <hes> this i. This is why any time i'm on. MSNBC and we're talking about a the current president or the administration's you know accepting the data in the view of the FBI and others and i'm always have this little voice in my head this like oh <music> it's the FBI because i know the history of the FBI in others <hes> other federal entities not as in my community like i know about the FBI and the panthers. I know about the f. b. i. n. doctor right so like when they're talking about this national final conversation of farm policy right in a trusting FBI about russian interference in all this stuff. I always have my head this yes. Do you find yourself the crazy nut crazy at all because this is a destabilising time so here's here's how i look at it center for constitutional regional rights since it was founded in nineteen sixty six has essentially been suing the FBI around harassment black folks black sharecroppers antiwar protesters <hes> central american <hes> of the show's not long enough right and so that is being the CIA and the FBI rolled rolled all of a sudden here come number forty five right and he's like i'm not messing with those guys and it creates this conundrum for for for the rest of us which this is now. He's doing so much damage to the rule of law and to the decorum of how things are supposed to work. Should we defending the system war. Should we be supporting him in dismantling. This is such a you know an. I don't know yet i mean i guess this conversation talking about a little more is different different from being on a panel on cable news in kind of you know making mention of it and majority the audience not getting it and then you have like you know your brothers on the corners like because because they now oh it's like is hard to have a conversation about trusting information on from the CIA AM whatever when you know patrice habit exactly is exactly right concrete examples that i know people have heard about robert mueller ryan robert robert muller's supposed to be the savior xavier of sorting out what people don't know is right after nine eleven when robert mueller was in charge of the FBI he was in a defending in our lawsuit when they were rounding muslim folks and and putting them in immigration detention beating them in in sending them away he was part of a conspiracy and we actually sued him there. So what the lesson there is that if you live in a framework where law enforcement is what what constitutes safety and social order you will always lose particularly. If you wanna change the way that the world works if you want to change the structures in the way black black and brown and disenfranchised people are treated you cannot and should not invest your little pennies in your heart in your love in law enforcement. That's the conundrum and we're being tested. What do we do events like. Do we trust. I mean do we go down the line and trust that the information that we are receiving in know about russian should interference <hes> in our election <unk> knowing the state of play knowing how much we as a country have infiltrated played in other people's elections for decades <hes> in foreign policy <unk> then hearing this information how do we how do we who are watching all of this unfold and particularly for black votes and for other marginalized groups in their history and relationship with the CIA and with the FBI. How do we move forward on this political. Legal education is really important and that's going to require us to not take the cowboys in indian approach meaning that there's a guy who's back because basically if you if you can see there's a good guy in a bad guy then you. You're doing drafting the guy to tell you who the bad guys. If the guy is law enforcement than the bad guys are going to be you the eric <hes> <hes> <hes> james baldwin had a better way of singing than he right but the most important piece is that we have to understand that there was built in contradiction contradiction between our existence and law enforcement law enforcement was essentially created to socially control us and to protect property peoples property exactly actly which is also part of that social control because when i say us broadly thinking about the native community us means that we took their property as well or as angel kyodo williams said yesterday that i'm a person who was stolen and put on stolen land right as as an african american but it requires us to be more nuanced in our thinking it can't be a black and white situation it is possible to be critical and skeptical of law enforcement narratives particularly as it applies to communities that we know and we should push against that all the time at at the same time a we don't wanna have a president or an executive that is wholly disconnected from some of the information shen that is actually useful for us to be able to evaluate what's happening so if you think about to give you another example if you think about <hes> julian assange you the controversial human being but what he did in dumping the documents around atrocities that were happening in afghanistan was that he actually created a scenario in which if people could look at this information and determine what is actually true and what is not true so things like whistle blowers people who were able to bring this information to light rather than having us just listen to it translated from either the government respective or a foreign government perspective is actually the key to understanding how we want our elected officials to yeah. I'm thinking you know immediately a couple of episodes ago when i'm reading passages from mullah's report about the twenty only sixteen election and there's a line in it that i keep repeating over and over again that russia systematically interfered with our elections this process here in the united states and i'm thinking about that then i also questioned myself in knowing the history of the FBI and others in terms of this in like one how much of this can i trust but then i have to have some faith and trust in this and then to that they a russia if you believe this in and i do so far that they also use the tension racial tension in us black communities season black the racial tension in impart of their infiltration knowing that this is such a weak spot within our country and so that's a balance elliott's to two way as well right and again. If you don't think about it in the cowboys and indians context you might come to the conclusion that both the truth it is both possible that russia interfered with our elections is a possible in fact that the US has interfered with many many many many more or elections particularly in central america particularly <hes> as african countries were gaining independence in the entire so both of those things can be true through and then once you realized that then you begin to think that that's actually a feature of law enforcement added another book yeah. That's really important so lastly. I want to talk. What about the work that you guys doing. Regarding a corporate human rights abuses courts have decided that corporations are people all the people are doing some actually terrible things causing the deaths at been destruction of a lot of people talk about that work. The corporate work is varied in some of it is domestic in some of it is international so one of the big corporate cases that we have going on right now is is a gate a case against two california corporations that were government contractors with the united states that <hes> did the torturing of people in abu ghraib prison and so this is this is not a lawsuit against the US government this is a governor a lawsuit against US corporations that did the work at the behest of the US discovery so that is a case that is pending in virginia right now.

"So Robert Mueller has delivered his long report to attorney general William bar. Here's the short of it. There's no collusion. And there was no obstruction of Justice. And there's no fair way to interpret this other than as a big win for president. Trump investigation was bigger and broader than virtually all observers new nineteen lawyers forty FBI agents twenty eight hundred subpoenas five hundred search warrants thirteen request a foreign governments for evidence in interviews where some five hundred witnesses the last two years. It was a legitimate story. The prospect of collusion in charge of the obstructing Justice. Those are serious story. I didn't believe it then. But now, it's not even a legitimate story.

"That's the truth. Oh, sure. Everybody, you know, he was the best friend until he wasn't. He was your team until he wasn't. That's of course, the way it went. But I have been having this conversation for a while now. And I wanna make sure that I am on the record. I've got the video up on my Facebook page. Facebook dot com slash Tony cats radio discussing this. I've discussed it on air before I discussed it on Fox News. This entire conversation about Robert Mueller, the special counsel looking into how Russia messed with US elections, which is still the subject, and I'm afraid we're never going to really deal with that. And we should. That seems to be the thing that people don't care about. When it's the most important thing. Something we've discussed on this show many times. But you have to understand what's going to come. You have to understand how the Democrats are going to maneuver down this road, and I shared this on FOX. So understand that getting an indictment was actually never the goal, right? They would have been happy to have won thrilled to have one and said, oh, look we were right all along the objective of the Democratic Party. With President Trump is to charge him with a crime. The crime itself is insignificant. It's the charge that matters. They wanna be able to say under under investigation right through twenty twenty. It is exactly what they want. It's the playbook that they've been playing for the last two years, and they're gonna continue for the next two years when? That's just the way it is it is imperative that we all understand that as we move forward and breaking down. What's in? The report also note that we have not seen the report there could be things in there that are plain old embarrassing the President Trump, we've said this there could be things in there that make us question a whole series of things. But what you're hearing right now is that the report as looked at by the attorney general and by the deputy attorney general the report says no collusion that was the top line conversation. Trying to move off that all of a sudden that doesn't matter stop it. There was no conspiracy to engage in fraud in the election between between the Russians the Trump team end of list. So any other conversation from the Democrats continues to look like this brutal nonsense witch hunt. Donald Trump is also proven correct on that terminology is going to stick. There is going to be an incredible incredible amounts of oh, dear Lord, Democrats. Just shut up already just shut your mouth in your face in your face mouth and your whatnot. Nobody wants to hear from you anymore. You told us it was collusion for two years and the special counsel said, no, it's not now you wanna continue down the road with other investigations. You people really are sick. You know, who's going to say that? It's funny. I believe I said who's going to say that on Fox News. The Democrats got elected to control the house. It started the night of a thousand subpoenas. And it's still going on it is and the people of Michigan Wisconsin, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Ohio who won the election for Donald Trump. They're not going to be so swayed or turned on by the idea that investigations are continuing because Democrats lied to America for two years.

"Well, Democrats are already downplaying what's exactly going to be in this thing. James Clapper came out earlier today. He said, well, you know, I don't think this is going to be the big bombshell. Everybody else thinks it's going to be is the Robert Mueller investigation enough to if that's if that's the possible scenario that you're looking at you think that what Andrew McCabe said is a possible scenario is the Robert Mueller investigation, and what's happening in congress enough. I think the the hope is that the molar investigation will clear the air on this issue once and for all I'm really not sure will and in the investigation when completed could turn out to be quite an anticlimactic. And not draw a conclusion about that. Well, this would be the big sad for Democrats. Democrats do not know what to do if it turns out. There is not any there there after years of this kind of build up. I mean, there is a term that some people use that as vulgar that would certainly apply right here. It is a color and also shape. So it's it's really it's a bad situation for Democrats. If the report doesn't end up being the bomb shell that. Democrats hope that it will be in a second.
