And that brings us to the deputy attorney general that bar inherited the man who gave us the Muller investigation one rod Rosenstein and the questions about him tonight. Like how? Savvy. An inside player is he really this career federal prosecutor Harvard law graduate is first internship was for Massachusetts US attorney named Robert Muller. This man who the president has privately derided as mister peepers has he been privately currying the favor of the president all along to keep his job. Here is what raises all these questions tonight, the Washington Post late today detailed that Rosenstein, reportedly told Trump something certain in order to remain in charge of the investigation. The post focuses on the fallout in the wake of this explosive article from the New York Times, you'll recall it September twenty eighteen we reported on that widely at the time it said that after the 2017 firing of James Komi Rosenstein suggested wearing a wire to secretly record the president. And he talked about the twenty fifth amendment. The post now says after that Rosenstein was called on the carpet, and he was forced to explain himself to a furious White House and was reportedly teary-eyed in a meeting with then chief of staff John Kelly on a subsequent phone call with Trump he sought to quote assure the president he was on his team. And that he would make sure Trump was treated fairly quote.

"Rod Rosenstein with him, and of course, with consultation of these special counsel and the office of independent counsel. Yeah. They made the decision because there's no evidence that rises to any level of obstruction. Many of you missed it. I want you to hear it in full. And this is the attorney general bar from earlier today special counsel's report states that his quote investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. I am sure that all Americans share my concern about the efforts of the Russian government interfere in our presidential election as the special counsel report. Makes clear the Russian government sought to interfere in our election process, but thanks to the special counsels thorough investigation. We now know that the Russian operatives who perpetrated these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign or the knowing assistance of any other American for that matter that is something that all Americans can and should be grateful to have confirmed. First the report details efforts by the internet research agency, a Russian company with close ties to the Russian government to so social discord among American voters to descend for mation and social media operations following a thorough investigation of this disinformation campaign special counsel brought charges in federal court against several Russian nationals and entities for their respective roles. In this game, those charges remain, pending and the individual defend. Dents remain at large, but the special counsel found no evidence that any American including anyone associated with the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government or the IRA another way the special counsel found no collusion by any Americans in IRA's illegal activities second the report details efforts by the Russian military officials associated with the GRU the Russian military intelligence organization to hack into computers and steal documents emails from individuals associated with Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign. But again, the special counsel's report did not find any evidence that members of the Trump campaign or anyone associated with the campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these hacking operations. In other words, there was no evidence of the Trump campaign. Collusion with the Russian government's hacking. The special counsel's investigation also examined Russian efforts to publish stolen. Emails documents on the internet, the special counsel found that after the GRU disseminated, some of the stolen documents to entities that it controlled DC leaks and goose affir- to the GR you transferred, some of the stolen materials to WikiLeaks for publication WikiLeaks, then made a series of document dumps the special counsel also investigated whether any member or affiliate of the Trump campaign in courage d- or otherwise played a role in these dissemination efforts under applicable law publication of these types of material would not be criminal unless the publisher also participated in the underlying hacking conspiracy after finding no underlying collusion with Russia. The special counsel's report goes on to. Consider whether certain actions of the president could amount to obstruction of the special counsel's investigation as I dressed in my March twenty four th letter the special counsel did not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment regarding this allegation. Instead, the report recounts, ten episodes involving the president and discusses potential legal theories for connecting those activities to the elements of an obstruction of fence after carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report and in consultation with the office of legal counsel and other department lawyers the deputy Turney gentleman I concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and obstruction of Justice offense. Although the deputy attorney general disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law. We did not rely solely on that in making our decision. Instead, we accepted the special counsels legal framework for purposes of our analysis and evaluated the evidence as presented by the special counsel reaching our conclusions in assessing the president's actions discussed in the report, it is important to bear in mind. The context President Trump faced an unprecedented situation as he entered into office and sought to perform his responsibilities as president federal agents and prosecutors were scrutinizing his conduct before and after taking office and the conduct of some of his associates at the same time there was relentless speculation. And the news media about the president's personal culpability yet as he said from the beginning there was in fact, no collusion. And as the special counsel's report acknowledges, there is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief. That the investigation was undermining his presidency propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks. Nonetheless, the white has fully cooperated with the special counsel's investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign in White House documents directing senior aides to testify freely and asserting no privilege claims. And at the same time, the president took no act that in fact, deprive the special counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation apart from whether the acts were obstructive this evidence of non-corrupt motives weighs heavily against any allegation. That the president had a corrupt intent to obstruct the investigation as you will see most of the reductions were compelled by the need to prevent harm to ongoing matters and to comply with court orders prohibiting the public disclosure of information bearing on ongoing investigations. In criminal cases, such as the IRA case. And the Roger stone case these reductions were applied by department of Justice attorneys working closely together with turns from the special counsel's office as well as the intelligence community and prosecutors are handling the ongoing cases, the reductions or their work product. No reductions done by anybody outside this group. There were no reductions done by anybody outside this group. No one outside. This group proposed any reductions and no one outside. The department has seen the unredacted report with the exception of certain sections that were made available to is say the intelligence community for their advice on protecting intelligence sources methods consistent with long standing executive branch practice the decision whether to assert executive privilege over any portion of the report rested with the president of the United States because. The White House had voluntarily cooperated with the special counsel significant portions of the report contain material over which the president could have a certified privilege, and he would have been well within his rights to do. So following my March twenty ninth letter, the office of the White House counsel requested the opportunity to review the redacted version of the report in order to advise the president on the potential invocation of privilege, which is consistent with long standing practice following that review, the president confirmed that in the interests of transparency and full disclosure to the American people he would not serve privilege over the special counsel's report accordingly. The public report AMR releasing today contains reductions only for the four categories that I previously outlined and no material has been redacted based on executive privilege and addition earlier this week the president's personal council requested and was given the opportunity to read a final version of. The redacted report before it was publicly released that request was consistent with the practice. Followed under the ethics in government hacked, which permitted. Individuals named in a report prepared by an independent counsel the opportunity to read the report before publication, the president's personal lawyers were not permitted to make and did not request any reductions in addition to making the redacted report public. We are also working with congress to accommodate their legitimate oversight interests with respect the special counsel's investigation. We've been consulting with chairman Graham, chairman Nadler through this process, and we will continue to do. So given the limited nature of the reductions, I believe that the publicly released report will allow every American to understand the results of the special counsel's investigation nevertheless in an effort to accommodate congressional requests, we will make available subject to appropriate safeguards to a BI partisan group of. Leaders from several congressional committees aversion of the report with all reductions remove except those relating to win jury information, thus these members of congress will be able to see all of the redacted material for themselves with limited exception of that which by law cannot be shared. I believe that this accommodation together with my upcoming testimony before the Senate and House Judiciary committees will satisfy any need congress has for information regarding the special counsel's investigation. Right. That was the attorney general is nine thirty this morning as he broke the news. We've now read for this report. We'll have more.

Indeed as the report states, quote, the investigation did not identify evidence that any US person knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA's interference operation, unquote. Put another way the special counsel found. No collusion. The report itself suggest the June two thousand sixteen meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Donald from junior with Russians claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton was one of many contacts studied under what's commonly referred to as collusion. Otherwise, quote, the Russian contacts consisted of business. Actions offers of assistance to the campaign invitations for candidate Trump and Putin to meet in person invitations for campaign officials and representatives of the Russian government to meet and policy positions seeking improved US Russian relations in quote, President Trump's initial public reaction was breath during an event hosting wounded warriors here and they're having a good day. I'm having to do it was called, no collusion. No obstruction. The attorney general Robert Muller handed off the idea of whether the president or someone close to him tried to obstruct Justice in the Russia investigation after finding ten potential episodes. Although the deputy attorney general disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law. We did not realize solely on that. In making our decision. Democrats on Capitol Hill will certainly try to look at those episodes further including the firing of James Comey and some of the president's tweets urging potential witnesses to not rat on him related to the obstruction of Justice aspect of the Muller reports bar over this bit of empathy for President Trump. There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks. Robert Mueller lifted up. Bar deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein to look into whether the president or someone close to him could have engaged in obstruction of Justice. They decided no among the obstruction of Justice lines of inquiry Muller mentioned in the report are the firing of James Comey attempts to influence witnesses and the president's order to White House counsel dumb again that he tell deputy AG rod Rosenstein, the fire Muller Mcgann who spoke with the team for as much as thirty hours apparently refused to do. So in an effort to save the president from an appearance of structure of Justice add to that the alleged efforts by the president ticket. Michael Cohen to stay loyal once Cohen head criminal legal problems in New York Muller ends with a hint for congress to decide if it should charge the president with obstruction on the way tomorrow Lago. President Trump tweeted from Air Force One I had the right to end the whole witch hunt. If I wanted I have fired everyone, including Muller if I wanted I chose not to I had the right to use executive privilege. I didn't however the report makes a point of comment regarding obstruction. The president's to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful. But that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests. And now it's up to congress to take the next step. Linda Kenyon, has the view from Capitol Hill. Michael if you thought it was over thank again special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president, and the responsibility now falls to congress told the president accountable for his actions. That's Representative Jerrold Nadler, the powerful chairman of the House Judiciary committee. He's leading one of the many investigations that will continue in the wake of the mullahs report. A report that found no collusion, but did not absolve President Trump of obstruction of Justice attorney general William bar who presented the report at a news conference was roundly criticized by many Democrats, including Nadler who said bar was far from Jek give bars words and actions suggest he has been disingenuous and misleading in saying the president is clear of wrongdoing. Nadler says the redacted Muller report is clear the President Trump. Committed multiple misdeeds report outlines disturbing evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction of Justice and other misconduct. Senator Richard Blumenthal. A member of the Senate Judiciary committee says the misconduct on the part of the president is stunning. But that's only part of the story. Details in this report about the Russian attack on our democracy are truly chilling also calls into question, the objectivity of the attorney general Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, one of the only Republicans to make any public comment on the release of the mullahs report depicted, the attorney general the special counsel, and the deputy attorney general as beyond reproach all three of them about as close to a-political as you can imagine strong disagreement from Adam Schiff, the chairman of the house intelligence committee. Attorney general did a grave disservice to the country by misrepresenting significant parts of the mullahs report and shift says the attorney general also blast over the actions of the president of the United States there. Unquestionably
Political fight over Mueller report intensifies
"Meanwhile, the escalating political battle over the report centers on reductions, which lawyerly editing process, Mr. bars redacting at least four categories of information before issuing it to congress and the public Devlin Barrett who covers the Justice department and the F B I at the Washington Post says the fight over blackout boxes is likely to lead to months of battles between congress and the Justice department. Devon, what's up here? The attorney general is is looking at a number of different types of material that we would be redacted and what I try to describe in the piece was just how some of those categories are fairly flexible, particularly the grand jury material category. And we really don't know how he's going to. Decide those reductions, but because this is such a politically charged issue. It's just an incredibly tense and people are already accusing him of acting in bad faith before they even see what he's done. He's working with Robert Muller on this. Correct. That's right. And he's working with Robert Muller, and he's working with deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, who's been supervising this this investigation from the beginning. All right. So I mean, this thing could come out and be virtually three hundred eighty eight pages are so out of the four hundred that are completely blacked out in theory. Right. A lot of grand jury stuff. I'd imagine this with all those subpoenas that were issued well in theory, but there's a couple of things to remember one bar has publicly pledged to be as transparent as possible now transparency is often in the eye of the beholder. The other issue is grand jury material can be interpreted different ways. I think prosecutors genuinely interpret the category, very broadly. But I think when there's this much attention on such a high profile case, especially a case in which congress also has. Vested interest in knowing what happened in the course of the investigation. I think there's some pretty good arguments to define grandeur material material narrowly,

Trump calls Mueller report summary a 'complete and total exoneration'
"President Trump is wrong. This report does not amount to a so-called total. Exoneration special counsel Mueller was clear that his report quote does not exonerate close quote, the president his conclusions. Raise more questions than answer. It is unconscionable that President Trump would try to spin the special counsel counselors findings as if his conduct was remotely acceptable. Let me just tell you about this character. He's for thirty years. He's been trying to get at the President Trump any can't presents mocked him mercilessly mercilessly when he was a state Senator whether it was right or not. That's a fact and now report comes out they does exonerate him. In those words, and he wasn't want the president to do. It's unconscionable. He could sit there in the street and get heckled only once which I give the MVP award to the heckler. In New York. You just started yelling Adam during it. It might have been Howard Stern guy. I'm not sure. But I only regret that he stopped Nadler's an embarrassment to the Democratic Party.

They're running on from the new green deal that the governor of Washington is backing to come LA Harris. Let's have free pot free prostitution. Let's start. Elizabeth warren. Let's start breaking up companies to free healthcare free free college free preschool. I mean, it's impossible to do what they're doing Scott. I don't know what they're doing right now. But the president got an opportunity just get stuff done start knocking things off his list. This is a this is his second biggest day since he won the election. No one ever give him credit for it. Remember, they said, well, you didn't win the popular vote. Then we had one of these independent candidates demanding a recount, three states, president of gaining more votes than the electoral college, the delegates who ceremonially supposed to back up with the state. Does they started to be try to flip? And some of them didn't do what they were supposed to be doing. Then incomes the Russia investigation, and some people just keep on looking at for another reason not to not to look at one of the biggest upsets in political history in any country any time. That's what happened in two thousand sixteen. Don't want want to acknowledge it now. Molly Henneberg weighed in and said, yeah, this is a coastal one chapter. But. Opens up another cut Twenty-eight buying into this dossier that now today we know not anything in that dossier led to has has proven to be correct. So this is this is a very important moment in the story. But it doesn't mean it's over because. Yes, the one storyline is done. But now the other storyline. We'd better get we'd better see a lot more about what was going on. I like to see it done and by the way after impeachment when Hillary co when Bill Clinton was impeached in the house, and it stopped in the Senate. They they stopped investigating. They are going to keep continue to investigate now after the Robert Moore probe Eric who's on news ninety six five in Orlando hair. Brian. It's so sickening. The media for two years told us that Robert Mueller had the greatest integrity in DC. And now they're actually on MSNBC saying that oh to the Russians. Right. And did he did he sell out? I think what Trump should do is. Now, put them on the defensive. Have Adam Schiff declassify all of it. Let them see the Adam Schiff was leaking. Let them see what McCain did. And then Friday, five o'clock. So that they have to wait for the week, and he should say, I'm I'm asking Mr. bar to investigate what really happened 'cause Robert Mueller Alice h he's a witness and Rosenstein, he wrote the letter to fire each he's a witness. How the heck did he wind up having this whole thing? I'd like to hear your could on that. But I tell you what I love the I love the tactic of leaving them there for the final summary. Don't you Eric? So instead of saying, well, he jettisoned the guy who's going to wear a wire rod Rosenstein, and he said, no come here, you read with Robert Muller said, and I want you to Luke over my shoulder win and writing this summary, and you tell me ride am I doing anything that you don't trust Rosenstein was there for the letter to fire Komi Rosenstein was there for the meeting with McCabe after Komi was fired and launched the Robert Mueller investigation. He signed the FIS away. Aren't and he was there when he got exonerated. So I love for people just to looking for an opening and Robert Mueller. Oh, now robber mo-.

NBC's Savannah Guthrie Grills Sarah Sanders
"Savannah Guthrie, I've NBC I went after Sarah Sanders saying well doesn't the president needs to apologize now. Because he didn't file fire Mueller, and it became it was Sarah Sanders turned on her like a Honey badger. Let's let's play cut right now. Robert Muller deserve better from the president that this kind of language and behaviour, frankly, I think the American people deserve better. They didn't deserve for the election of this president to try to be wait a minute. But the president's rhetoric about a public servant doing a job. Are you kidding? The president's rhetoric matches. They are literally the media and Democrats have called the president an agent of a foreign government. We're talking to that is an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country. Want to quote from the report here this not I will this is William bar. According to the report quote. The investigation special counsel's investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities in a footnote related to that to that quote. The footnote says that in assessing potential conspiracy charges the special counsel also considered well, the members of the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian election interference activities, the special counsel defied coordination with an agreement tacit or express between the Trump campaign and the Russian government on election interference. And it just did happen. This is again, we will see the full report. We want transparency we want transparency. There's there's one other point here that I wanted to make on the obstruction of Justice after reviewing the special the special counsel may not know determination after reviewing the special counsel's final report on these issues consulting with department officials, including the office of legal counsel and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide are charging decisions deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein and I- meaning William bar. The attorney journal concluded that the evidence developed during the special counsel's investigation is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and obstruction of Justice crime in making this determination. We noted that the special counsel recognize that quote, the evidence does not establish that the president was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference unquote, and that while not determinative.

"Shapiro show. I'm Michael Knowles filling in on the greatest news day over the last two years. I'm sure Ben is just kicking himself that he cannot be here to enjoy all of the craziness of we are very privileged right now to be joined by judge Ken, Starr, Ken Starr, has been a circuit court judge s solicitor general he is the author of contempt a memoir, a superb book highly recommended reading, and then of course, he served as independent counsel during the Clinton administration. Nobody is more qualified than judge star to discuss this investigation and the report and the conclusion and the fallout judge star. Thank you so much for being here. Hey, my pleasure, Michael. So judge star. There have been a lot of character attacks going around here. There have been character attacks against Robert Muller against attorney general bar against deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, we're talking a lot. What about the players now that the dust has started to settle in your view? How did all of these men perform in their various roles during this entire investigation. Will there have been some ups and downs? But overall, this is where we are. We're so far from Venezuela. How many countries that struggle with rule of law issues? And so whether a special council should have been appointed in bay twenty seventeen people can debate that and other very strong feeling some both sides of that. But we have a system of accountability. And what this report out? The report does indicate is we have a terrific attorney general who goes by the rules, namely these regulations Bill bar has this past Friday and then yesterday afternoon in a forty eight hour period showed the nation if they were just pause and listen instead of all of the rhetoric is flying around that. He did exactly what the law requires him to do. You can agree or disagree with the judgments, but he's doing it. Exactly, right, including not rushing tell mouth to release the report he's going by the law, Michael. And so I I think that the country has been very very well. Served now wrong Rosenstein, of course, is dairy bitter criticism for the appointment in the first instance of spies applications, I think we're gonna get to the bottom of all this. But for rod Rosenstein. Who's a very experienced prosecutor. And who knows what obstruction of Justice is to agree with the conclusions. That there was no obstruction of Justice. And I haven't given what I what little I know which is what public knows angry fully with that. So I think at the end of the day we've been well served. This is the question as as you bring up on obstruction. I suppose there are two questions in the or report Russian collusion and obstruction and some are claiming that because special counsel Mueller chose not to reach a conclusion on obstruction that President Trump has not been exonerated now. Obviously attorney general bar and deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein came out yesterday with their view on it has the president in your opinion been exonerated. I think he has because of the conclusions of Bill barn rod Rosenstein, it wasn't apparently their inclusion alone. Or at least there's was the result of very careful. Elaborate process that they consulted within the Justice department career experience. Prosecutors the officer legal Johnson, so they brought some very fine experience minds together. Also, remember the president throughout the investigation attacked pretty directly the investigation. And so who knows I'm not making any claims, I'm not making any allegations, which prosecutors are human you don't like to coin names, I didn't like to be call names twenty years ago. So I think in a way it's almost Why's that while at one level. Bob Muller didn't do as duty. It was his duty. It might be said that had he reached the conclusion, which I would not have been a strong conclusion that there had been obstruction of Justice people might very well have said, well, who are you and your prosecutors who are being attacked by the process to say that the investigation was being. Obstructed. So in any event. I think obviously, the house representatives is going gonna work its will. Here's what I think is very we can now close the chapter on this. We'll talk about it. But we can close the chapters matter of history on this. And now we open the next phase of what people really want to know. And that's what chairman Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has said okay, now, let's look into how all this began in the first instance and was a wrongdoing at senior levels, the FBI watchos are very important unanswered questions. And this is the scandal. This is the real scandal. That now that we've seen the conclusion of the Muller report. These are the biggest questions we have to ask however, Democrats in the house or signaling. They don't want to move on very much. They are now vowing to drag Robert Muller before congress people have joked now that one of the great conclusions of the Muller report is because he's. Finished a special counsel. He can now. Join Twitter and start voicing his political opinion. Do you have any advice as guy who obviously was dragged through the mud has been through the ringer in all of this during the nineties one independent counsel to another? Do you have any advice on how Mr. Muller should comport himself moving forward? I think he's already shown wisdom. He's not holding press conferences and the like, and so I would just be very low key. If he wants to write a book take twenty years from now to write it the way I did. That's a good way. In your book is so good. I have to mention it, again, contempt a memoir, lots of parallels. And especially now for people who were saying both sides of the aisle. Democrats ain't Robert Muller is the greatest guy in the entire world Republicans saying he was a dirty cop. And now maybe the sides of flipped a little bit. Politics. Strange bedfellows. Of course. Yesterday's line is no longer today's. You're you're more makes this very clear looking forward as you mentioned to Senator Lindsey Graham suggestion to some of the other questions here about how this investigation started in the first place how we got the Russian interference investigation, maybe some of the improprieties at the department of Justice or at the FBI. What does this look like moving forward is our long national nightmare over or is it just beginning. No, I think so long national nightmares. Over up having a special counsel special. Prosecutor what whatever we call investigating the president. That's a clear and present danger to the orderliness of government and the lights the president is no longer in the cost hairs of the criminal Justice system. He has in fact, enjoy now exonerates is his full as he would like, of course, not. But nonetheless, here's the point special counsel. Bob Muller has closed up shop, and he is returning. No further indictments, and they're no indictments under sealed. So now the politics began that will continue all sorts of. Twenty twenty. Absolutely. That's that is the conclusion it's we've now reached the end of the line on this Nullah report the special counsel investigation. And thank you so much judge star. I know that you are in high demand these days. So I appreciate your taking the time to come on highly recommend, everybody checkout. Contempt a memoir. Always so great to have your insights.

"Eight forty three on this Monday. Thank you for listening as always president's day markets are closed. Remember that no male and given the condition of of the side streets for those of us who have our mail delivered to the curb better post office boxes out there. It's going to be probably a blessing for the postal workers because it is a mess out there the side streets, a horrendous this morning, even even the freeway had had snow on it still as of six AM this morning. So careful out there. Good news as the sun is shining at least for a day or two have a little bit of a reprieve from the snowy weather that has inundated Wisconsin in February. We did have a chance to see this last night. I'm a big fan of CBS's sixty minutes program, and and a big fan of Scott Pelley, and he had to sit down with Andrew McCabe. Former acting director of the FBI he is someone who was really part of the starts of the Muller investigation. Now, McCabe says what they said last night is lifelong Republican twenty one year career at the FBI famously fired days shy of his official retirement qualifying dates, and I think that that part of that story is still under litigation. He's not somebody who's clean from a sense that you would expect somebody that has that kind of position because he's he's been accused of lying under oath. He's also writing a book about the president, and those days, let me play a little bit of the CBS interview, Scott Pelley, talking to former acting FBI director, Andrew McCabe Komi was fired. Mccabe says he ordered to investigations of the president himself. They asked two questions. One did Mr. Trump fire Komi to impede the investigation into whether Russia interfered with the election and two if so was Mr. Trump acting on behalf of the Russian government that I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency, and and and won the election for the presidency. And who might have done. So. With the aid of the government of Russia. Our most formidable adversary on the world stage, and that was something that troubled me greatly. Now, whenever somebody writes a book, you have to certainly question their motives in as I said, he's not clean here. He's he's been accused of lying under oath three times. He's he's clearly someone who is at odds with the president's then. And now some of the interesting tidbits from this interview was the fact that he says rod Rosenstein, who was in charge acting attorney general was in charge of the investigation, the FBI his boss and Robert mother's boss at one point suggested he was deputy AG at the time. Mccain should wear a wire into the White House. And this is what this is what he said, I never get to the White House. I could easily wear recording device. They would know it was there. He was absolutely serious. And in fact, you brought up the next meeting. We had I never actually considered taking him up on the offer. I did discuss it with general counsel my leadership team back at the FBI. After you brought it up the first time. This is. Deputy AG rod Rosenstein talking about wearing a wire. Into the White House to record the president United States. The other interesting piece was the twenty fifth amendment discussion which allows the vice president and the majority of cabinets actually, remove a president from office. Now McCain also says the Rosenstein offered that idea. This is what he said rod raise the issue and discuss it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort. I didn't have much to contribute to be perfectly honest in that conversation. So I listened to what he had to say. But to be fair. It was unbelievably stressful time, I can't even describe for you. How many things must have been cursing coursing through the deputy attorney general's mine at that point. So it was really something that he kinda threw out in a very frenzied chaotic conversation about where we were and what we needed to do next think about those two things. Wearing a wire rod Rosenstein. And then at the on the other side of that pursuing a twenty fifth amendment discussion. For the vice president and a majority of his cabinet to remove the new president from office because of what became felt and others apparently within the FBI and the apartment Justice was a president that was tied to Russia in Vladimir Putin at one point they talk about North Korean missiles. And US military experts and security advisor said yes, they they have missiles that can reach the United States. The president cited by name Vladimir Putin and said I trust Putin. He says they don't have missiles that can reach the United States. And you could tell me interview last night Andrew McCabe was taken aback by. That statement by then newly elected president down Trump. You think about that one? Trusting a foreign leader. What are one of our most critical adversaries, ally and adversary before the own your own people? Adviser skirt advisors national security experts. Many within your administration taking his word over there. Think about that. And then that that certainly plays into the story line here where the. Tells you wearing a wire discussion leads twenty fifth amendment conversation goes that's what we were talking about. It's stunning detail. From somebody who was for a moment in charge of the FBI four one four seven nine nine one six twenty mortgage talking text line, do you believe McCabe, or do you think this was a witch hunt to use the president's words? I have a hard time believing somebody that's been accused of lying under oath three times. He he says he was flustered by the questions did not did not purposely mislead. But don't all people who get caught lying say that at some point. I think so. And he's writing a book. Andrew McCabe, sixty minutes. Donald J Trump. An incredible story of what happened at the very beginning of the modern investigation. Here we are nearly two years later, China sort it all out and I'll go to my favorite. Line when I talked about the mall investigation. Nobody knows other than mother and his team the media don't know, we don't know. Listen to a talking head that say, they do know, they don't know.

This is what we didn't find. And if there's no further conversations to be had about this president. That's where it could end. Now, one of the things that I think there's a lot of people's mind is at some point given the scope and scale of this investigation, the public I think has a right to know, and whether that's going to supersede, whatever confidentiality or security reasons to not put that report in the public eye.

"Call me. You've got rod Rosenstein, the James Baker who is one of the grand poobah. The justice. These are all Obama people. And they literally are sitting around. We've just had an election, president was elected, duly constituted presidential election. Donald Trump wins. These people are sitting around literally conspiring. On sending somebody to the Oval Office wearing a wire in this case, Rosenstein. Who would become deputy attorney general? Where a wire hoping to entrap the duly elected president. For the purposes of then taking whatever they think they had to cabinet members and saying see this man is unfit. We need your help in getting rid of this man using the twenty fifth amendment stop and think about I mean, we hear about this happening, but we aren't there. So the impact on us. In the midst of everything else that we've heard and learned it's just one of many items. And sometimes you lose the ability. To be properly intellectually emotionally impacted by this, but stop and think of this and the purpose here. This is an and the people involved have already. Then involved in a two year effort.

A a myriad of law professors, and legal experts who were all in unison aghast that rod Rosenstein, never recused himself, and I point out at my calm.

Well, the only Rosenstein would be authorized to decide whether to prosecute himself. For line, which is exactly why the code of professional responsibility. Not to mention the DOJ regulations. Say you can't be a prosecutor and a witness all rolled into one. But yet, you're exactly right. You're exactly right. And it's really light it by the way in this setting because under the regulations Rosenstein has specific authority to determine the scope of any investigation, and he can call off any avenue special counsel intensely. Don't win expressly written into the regulation and six zero point nine. I don't need to go through this regulation, but that's his authority. And so you're right. He's.
