Counterintelligence threat to the U. S. Now this is all part of a long awaited report from the Senate Intelligence Committee on Rush in coordination with the Trump campaign here, CBS's Nancy Courtis The nearly 1000 page report details an extensive web of Russian relationships within the Trump campaign. Specifically, it says Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort ce willingness to share information with individuals closely affiliated with the Russian intelligence services represented a grave counterintelligence threat. The three year investigation also found that President Trump may have misled special counsel Robert Mueller. He told Mueller that he didn't recall discussing the Clinton campaign's stolen emails with his close friend Roger Stone.

Cohen's book foreword: Trump 'wouldn’t mind if I was dead'
"The book is that is written by Michael Cohen. This book has not yet been published. It's going to be released, I think, on September 7th But what he did Dio was he released the forward to his book, The introduction. The introduction to his book, and it says, Ah, lot Now I found this Tio. I went to disloyal the book dot com That's the name of the book Disloyal. And the foreword to the book is published at Disloyal the book dot com and I want to share with you some of what this, says An and I hope you will be patient with me because I am going to read what Michael Cohen says. And it's scary stuff that he's talking about, and this is just the prelude. This is just the introduction to what the book contains. He says. The president of the United States wanted me dead. Or let me say it the way Donald Trump would. He wouldn't mind if I was dead. That was how Trump talked like a mob boss, using language, carefully calibrated to convey his desires and demands while at the same time employing deliberate in direction to insulate himself and avoid actually ordering a hit on his former personal attorney. Confident constantly, Eri and at least in my heart. Adopted son. I'm I'm skipping around on this, by the way, because it's way too long for me to share with share all of it with you. Ever since I had flipped and agreed to cooperate with Robert Mueller in the special counsel's office, the death threats had come in by the hundreds enraged Trump supporters vowed to kill me and I took those threats very seriously. The president called me a rat and tweeted angry accusations at me as well as my family. All rats deserve to die. I was told I was a low life Judas and they were going to hunt me down. President Trump controlled all the levers of the commander in chief, and all the Overton covert powers that come with the highest office in the country. He also possessed a cult like hold over his supporters, some of them demonstrably unhinged and willing to do anything to please or protect the president. I knew how committed these fanatics were because I've been one of them on acolyte obsessed with Donald J. Trump, a demented follower willing to do anything for him, including as I vowed, wants to a reporter. To take a bullet. On the eve of my public testimony, lying in the still of the night in my hotel room, taking a bullet assumed a completely different meaning. Hey, Michael Cohen. This is a quote. Hey, Michael Cohen. Do your wife and father in law know about your girlfriends? GOP representative Matt gets tweeted me that night to cite just one example of the juvenile idiocy and menace aimed in my direction. Quote. I wonder show remain faithful. When you're in prison. She's about to learn a lot. It's not just that it's juvenile. It is menacing. It is disturbing it is. You know what it is? It is obstruction of justice. It's witness tampering is what it is. To half of Americans, it seemed like Trump was effectively a Russian controlled fraud who had lied and cheated his way to the White House to the other half of Americans to trump supporters. The entire Russian scandal was a witch hunt invented by Democrats still unable to accept the fact that Hillary Clinton had lost fair and square in the most surprising upset in the history of American presidential elections. Both sides were wrong. Trump had colluded with the Russians, but not in the sophisticated ways imagined by his detractors. I also knew that the Mueller investigation was not a witch hunt. Trump had cheated in the election with Russian connivance as you will discover in these pages because doing anything and I mean anything to win has always been his business model and way of life. Trump had also continue to pursue a major real estate deal and deal in Moscow. During the campaign, he attempted to insinuate himself into the world of President Vladimir Putin and his coterie of corrupt billionaire oligarchs. I know Because I personally ran that deal and kept Trump and his Children closely informed of all updates, even as the candidate blatantly lied to the American people, saying there's no Russian collusion. I have no dealings with Russia. There's no Russia. I knew trump better than anyone else did. In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore witness to the really man in strip clubs, shady business meetings. And in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really waas a cheat. A liar, a fraud, a bully a racist, a predator. A con man. I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them. When Trump wanted to reach a president, Russian President Vladimir Putin via a secret back channel. I was tasked with making the connection in my Keystone Kop fashion. I stiffed contractors on his behalf, ripped off his business partners lied to his wife, Melania, hide its sexual Infidelities and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened trumps path to power. From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas to tax fraud. Two deals

President Trump Commutes Prison Sentence of Long-Time Ally Roger Stone
"You, President Trump has commuted the sentence of longtime political ally Roger Stone. The extraordinary intervention came just days before Stone was set to begin serving a 40 month prison sentence for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign. I went deeper with Paul Brandis of West Wing reports. First of all, John Stone remains a convicted felon. A commutation means he's not going to jail. But the conviction stands now.

To protect the president and now a 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.

The justice has agreed to hear the Trump administration's appeal of a lower court order for the material to be turned over to the House of Representatives. The high court's action will keep those documents out of congressional hands, at least until the case is resolved, which is not likely to happen before next year. We're just

"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. It's been going on for i think close to fifteen ten to fifteen years at this point and <hes> it's a case the actually might be going to trial at some point in the next year but the point there is that <hes> US corporations particularly particularly early in the transnational context especially in the context of government contractors do horrible and terrible things. CCR the center for constitutional rights has sued sued shell oil corporation for killing of a gun ongoing leaner leaders in southern.

"Zhigo with my colleagues cal Peterson and Kim Strassel <hes> kill. Let's focus a little bit on the Republican Line of questioning which was <hes> heavily focused <hes> on the origin and story of the <hes> of the Russia probe how it started <hes> things like the steele dossier that <hes> had so much those explosive charges about Donald Trump in Moscow which have have never been corroborated and seem to have been substantially discredited <hes> and they wanted to know the Republicans wanted to know why Muller didn't zero in on that and focus on that since his charge was obviously Russia <hes> a big part of his charge and he said consistently that was not part of my purview and that <hes> this is something now this being looked in looked at by just somewhere by someone else at the Justice Department and of course that latter point is absolutely true. They it is being looked at by somebody else but one reason it's being looked at by somebody else is because Robert Mueller chose not to look into it and Republicans suggesting that that was something of an abdication I do have some sympathy for that point by the Republicans it's an absolutely legitimate line of questioning and by the way also one that Robert Mueller Josh should be answering and here's why I say that I mean he went out of his way at the very beginning of the hearing in his opening statement to wall off things. He said he was not going to talk about and that included the F.. B. Is behavior leading up to the point. Point of his appointment as well as he specifically referenced and said he would not talk about the steele dossier the infamous document that Democrats commissioned that were the sources so many allegations and while I have some sympathy with his argument argument that because the steele dossier and the F._B._i.. Is Behavior is now being looked at by the Department of Justice. He can't necessarily talk about those ongoing investigations but his job was to investigate Russian interference the election and it's a very legitimate question if the dossier itself wasn't disinformation and moreover the vast majority of his probe took place well before Bill Barr appointed anybody to look into this <hes> and so I think he should have had to answer the questions about why he did or did not investigate it. <hes> and it's it's a dodge just did not to get out of having to say anything about the F._B._i.. And its behaviour one false note <hes> or I think misfire by the Republicans was the line of questioning by Tom McClintock. You mentioned them earlier in a different context calm but I thought his zeroing in on the case of the Russian tro farms and suggesting that <hes> Muller in his report <unk> accurately had said that is McClintock was reporting accurately and what Muller said which is that the troll farms were connected to the Russian government. These are the tro farms. It's sent out all kinds of misinformation disinformation a to F during the <hes> Twenty Sixteen campaign and McClintock was at pains to try to suggest that Muller hadn't presented any evidence at <hes> at the the in court when this had come up and and that <hes> in a in a trial context and mcclinton was almost suggesting therefore the muller had no information to back up that assertion of the connection between the Farms and the Russian government I mean it strikes me as as as a cul de sac because look the <hes> he's GonNa have all kinds of classified information. I mean a lot of that came from no doubt from <hes> the U._S.. Intelligence Services and you're not going to explain on on National T._V. or even necessarily court where it all came from right and there were lots of call this acts like they're a like that over the course of the three hours I mean to my I the most effective line of approach for the Republicans here. <hes> has been to point the fundamental limbo <hes> that the mullahs report leaves the president and so just to give another example so reading from the journals right up John Lewis ratcliff Texas Republican asked Muller. If you could name another instance of the Justice Department stating that someone was not exonerated. I cannot Mr Mueller said so this can James Komi the F._B._i.. I mean James. Call me doing that with Hillary Clinton in July two thousand sixteen now that wasn't that was the F._B._i.. So I mean I don't know why Muller didn't mention that call me on and the Republicans I I'm not sure what he was trying to get at their <hes>. Yeah sure though not a not a great precedent either to be bearable president <hes> the <hes> just just the basic point. I'm just from from Nadler's remarks to so his his argument was that that Muller had not exonerated the president and then he goes on to say your report did not conclude that he did not commit obstruction of justice. Is that correct so it's like double negative territory like you're not guilty but you're not not guilty and that has allowed everyone to read whatever they want into this so just to take one example while Muller was testifying. I got an email from the trump. Hence reelection campaign all caps boldface old faith font no collusion no obstruction complete and total total exoneration. Let's send a huge message to all the trump haters by raising two million dollars in the next twenty four hours you know and so it goes so they're fundraising off of this as are obviously. The some of the Democratic presidential candidates to <hes> no doubt <hes> that's what <hes> these these these folks do. Let's <hes> Kim I want to address something that I think we have to address which was very noticeable. <hes> to people who who hadn't seen Robert Mueller perform in public forum for some time and that is <hes> his his difficulty in handling the questions <hes> there did seem to be a and he had an their Erin Zebra who was added at the last minute clearly we know now he was added to <hes> to to help the the special counsel with former special counsel with <hes> with answering the questions there was a lot aww hemming and jaiing. There seemed to be difficulty in hearing the questions. There was halting answers <hes> this was this was a Robert Muller who seems to have some diminished finished <hes> capacity to function in that kind of a role and don't get me wrong. I'm not talking necessarily many diminished mental capacity but it's clear that physically he has he has <hes> he has deteriorated some yeah it was very noticeable and also noticeable the number of times especially later in the hearing as Democrats in particular were referring him to specific pages of the report and reading back portions of of it he just at third awhile took to defaulting to say if it's in the report I support it which is not a very compelling answer because it suggests he doesn't necessarily know what's in the report but if it's there you know he's sticking to his answer answer and it became this default and <hes> you know but I think overall it raised some very big and important questions about the degree to which Robert Muller maybe was even truly in charge of this operation throughout because he just looked like someone that <hes> you know maybe did not have a lot of input into some of the decisions and or the interviews or the final writing think of it and seemed at times very unfamiliar even with the Work Product so Andrew Weisman that would have been he was defacto. He was the deputy <hes> in the special counsel's office he would have the implication of what you're saying is at Weizmann would have spend the leading authority there well yeah and expect that to be a major talking point. You're already seeing from Republicans. which it's it's out there on social media already saying okay well? Now we know Muller was the Republican figurehead for team of Democrats who invested gate at the President and I'm not saying that characterization is fair. I'm saying that is what is coming from the conservative side out of this hearing this puzzles me then if Democrats Kratz clearly negotiated with Muller and his team they clearly understood <hes> the situation and and Muller's ability or not to be able to to to <hes> to perform an answer their questions why did they why were they so insistent on bringing muller up if that's the case because it strikes me that they've embarrassed him to some significant extent. I mean he's performing. You know well enough given the circumstances but it's not it. It seems to me. Why did you need to bring him up at all? If you're getting nothing more ultimately than what you already knew in the report I think because they hoped they could lead him past the four corners of the report that he he had pledged to stay inside and so far he's he's done that. I mean there's another hearing this afternoon. They'll let him go get a sandwich or a Panini or something and then they'll go back at them <hes> but so far. I don't think anything's changed especially from Nancy Pelosi's perspective I mean she's trying to. Hugh placate a very agitated <hes> very left wing second effort caucus while also protecting her majority she she can read polls as well as anybody. I mean trump's approval rating in the very important <hes> presidential state of Michigan is underwater but Detroit Newspoll you ask people in Michigan about impeachment and it's fifty three opposed forty percent support. There's a national C._N._N.. Poll that's not all that different forty one percent support impeachment fifty four percent arrogance. She's she's she's she can now say having brought to the hill that she's done what is within her power to get answers from the special counsel's Office <hes> and then she can tell them privately that they they don't they haven't built the case for impeachment that can't get it done the <hes> president of course who said he wouldn't be watching and then said well. Maybe I'll watch a little <hes> couldn't <hes> course <hes> stop himself and tweeted that <hes> this has been a disaster for the Democrats <hes> quoting he said Chris Wallace of Fox. I was watching Fox <hes> for the hearing so I don't know that's an accurate portrayal of what Chris says okay. The pretty blunt was well. I mean do you agree with that or is this a disaster for the Democrats. My own view is that it's not a disaster. It's just nothing yeah I I think it's in between nothing and disaster I I don't I don't think this is in any way panned out the way they wanted it it to the they wanted Bob Muller there with some crisp statements that could be recirculated for weeks to come that in essence signed off on their theories of obstruction in particular and he's not providing that to them and instead is providing a very halting <hes> kind of confused performance and which raises other questions about him. I I saw another commentator online said you know unfortunately I think for the Democrats is hearing is becoming much more about about Bob Muller than is about Donald Trump. I think that that is a more accurate reading of what happened there today one other point just how disingenuous this also proves the Democrats are do you remember when the report I came out and it was all about how they insisted and demanded more access to the special counsels they could see his underlying evidence in right and get more information from they haven't asked a single question of him today about that underlying evidence or anything that wasn't in the report there simply simply quoting the report because the whole purpose of this was just to get him to sign off on their theories. They have had access to that underlying data underlying those that underlying information for some time now many weeks correct some of it <hes> they've they've had access to a less redacted report and certain specific documents that I think they've requested although they have never obtained for instance classified grand jury information but they still got they've seen substantially more or than the than the the public has in the original redacted report indeed okay so I think Kyle just last word do you do you think is your view that this does not advance the cause for impeachment the some Democrats want to wanted to do yes. I think I'd agree with him. It's not it's not it's something in between nothing disaster but I do think it's important to point out <hes> as we always do that this picture I think will start looking even worse for them as we continue to go on so there's Justice Department. Inspector General is working on a report on the F._B._i.'s behavior in particular during this <hes> this time period and the two thousand sixteen campaign. There's a U._S.. Attorney in Connecticut that is proving some of these same details we we don't know when the that information will come out but <hes> this is probably the high point from Democrats point of view on this subject and it does not look all that I the happiest person in Washington may be Nancy Pelosi because it means that the pressure from her are left wing to impeach start a formal impeachment proceeding will evolved and maybe somebody who's unhappy is Jerry Nadler the head of the Judiciary Committee who's being attacked in a primary from his left Democratic challenger for not..

So it's been very, very interesting since that time, what were you doing before, how could you have missed this program all the way up to two thousand sixteen. Well, I didn't miss you. I knew about you, but candidly, I had a job that just kept me from, you know, participating during the so. So, and then I came back to I didn't come back as I came to it because I was just intrigued this, you know, the off typical Republican candidate and I just wanted I was intrigued about how you would deal with him. You know where he'd put it? So they know I'm hooked appreciate. Here's my question. Yeah, yeah. Here's my question is Robert Mueller reputable reputable or not. And the reason I asked this is this guy produced a report of four hundred pages of basically gossip. Has muddled and muddied everything up, particularly for Democrats. And why couldn't why didn't they only you can answer this? Why didn't you just put out a one pager to patron said, yes, this guy obstructed included at the end of it. Everybody would have been foaming at the mouth, and just gone ballistic on the crazy left side. And that would have been the end of it. Now, that is a that is a fascinating question. Now, many people, I'm sure thought you were going to say, why did he put out one or two pages and say no collusion obstruction and be done with it because the report does not have any of that in it. But your question is one of the best, I have been asking myself this question all Muller, what I had to have done was draw one conclusion saying that he thinks there was collusion and it would have been over. Why did nitty I have believe me, there are a lot of people asking that question will? And I don't mean just Democrats. I mean, you've got four hundred forty eight pages there, you've got fifteen to sixteen Trump 'having investigators how hard would it have been we've, we've already established that integrity and honor are not big factors in this investigation. So why not just put in one little, maybe two assumptions.

"Robert mueller investigation honestly i in the beginning i would have said well if there's something there let's see where it goes since it has got absolutely nowhere with some small fish you have pled guilty to things that are only peripherally connected to russia collusion with the campaign and thirteen russians indicted none of them will ever see any kind of justice because they're totally immune to any kind of of prosecution it sounds to me like this whole process is just going to wither and die out with a bang and whether or not with a bang and so maybe the term which is beginning to apply gone from a legitimate political inquiry to nothing more than a witch hunt and frankly something just based on political grandstanding there's no evidence of collusion to people who pled guilty are all people who happen to be marginally associated i mean these are people who what they did had nothing with russia had nothing to do with the trump campaign it had nothing to do with collusion but people think of it as one thing because the democrats liked to confuse people in because they want trump to be impeached because that's what they use to fundraise that's what the he used to to go out and essentially rally the troops because they realize oh wow doctor actually worked out but the trumps agenda is working and they want to stop it they'll do anything they can and we'd might note by the way the weather's been absolutely zero evidence that the president is going to fire robert muller we should keep in mind that he has every legal right to do so this independent prosecutor this special prosecutor is not some fourth branch of government he is a part of the justice department who answers directly to the president of the united states the pressure at the pleasure in the privilege of the president united states that the mandate for his job you know he's he is not as you said part of the fourth branch of government this is not some judicial inquiry or some this is not a grand jury if i mean if there's no reason that whatever happened but if you if they wanted to do that okay that's illegal means robert mueller he has no job security he'd be fired the second and he can't do anything about it trump.
