"A huge problem with over-classification of information and transparency to Congress and transparency, the public will aid these agencies in long term in terms of increasing public trust and there's a great. Of that going on right now, where most former directors of the intelligence agencies will tell you that as much as it was a pain to prepare for and work with the analysts to generate unclassified intelligence judgments, they thought that the annual worldwide threat briefing the testimony to the intelligence committees with the unclassified, but consistent with the classified judgments of the intelligence community about worldwide threats. Threats was valuable that it was a worthwhile investment for Congress and the American people, but of course this year the Congress has not scheduled it and the administration has supposedly resisted it, and that seems like a step backward for what you're saying in terms of something that had been institutionalized for more than two decades, actually being walked back in being less transparent than before. It is shocking and alarming that four months before the president faces re-election. You know the the leaders of the intelligence community leader, the FBI as well have not testified before Congress. About! The biggest threats face to the country and I told privately. That is because they fear contradicting the president. Dan Coats as I mentioned earlier you know to the president's regarding the likelihood of North Korea agreeing to a nuclear deal and he was ridiculed publicly attacked. The president is successfully silencing current officials and preventing them from speaking out in public to be fairly officials they. Think reporters are gonNA. Ask them you know. Questions designed to get them to contradict trump rating. Democrats are going to ask them, but that's part of the job and I think Dan Coats didn't extraordinary job as deny protecting institutions, speaking truth to the American people you know I'm John Ratcliffe of partisan congressman. From Texas who was complete trump supporter. As. Director of National Intelligence Donald Trump is successfully taking over and politicizing the intelligence and law enforcement community. He's got that with Bill Bar at the Justice Department. He has that with John Ratcliffe at deny. I think. Gina Hassle and Chris Wray have resisted. Pressures to act politically, but you know he is succeeding, and he will continue to succeed in I. I just don't want. People to downplay the seriousness of what's happening here or see trump bumbling. This is extraordinary that these folks have testified this year Let me close by getting your thoughts on. Just how deep seated this, this nefarious deep state narrative made be in fact, could it actually be just a projection of something that's. That's much darker deeper itself. You you've pointed out that in the Eisenhower Administration. Roughly three quarters of people in polls said that they trusted the federal government to do the right thing most of the time. But Post Vietnam Post Watergate. This started declining until in the Obama. Years, the same question asked about do trust the federal government to do the right thing. Most of the time was getting only around twenty percent, and even less than that now between fifteen and twenty percent. When that faith in the government to do, the right thing is the underlying condition isn't some kind of belief in an evil deep state, almost a a necessary next step for people to believe in. It is, and it's a it's convenient. INEX- credibly dangerous. Political Narrative. But again I I didn't find it and I worry that as we continue on.

"Book. Club to speak with him I spoke to friends and people who are closely with him. I think he he he's not concerned about that. He's not concerned about others. He feels that the trump Russia investigation was improper. He is convinced the John. Durham is gonNA find illegal activity. He thinks Michael Flynn was. Victimized and should have been prosecuted he. He sincerely believes that Roger Stone's. Sentence was. Excessive, this is again an out of control and. In Council investigation. Leading to you, know He. He called it one of the worst abuses of amusing the wrong terms, but one of the worst. Abuses of justice you know in in our lifetimes, and so he thinks the president is between unfairly. He himself said you know, use the term the need when the after the killing of George Floyd for law enforcement to dominate the streets so I I think he's A. Tough law and order tough. Pro Presidential power figure and that's. He hasn't changed a bit over the decades you. Well after looking at the whole history, and after tracing these people's experiences through the bureaucracy, as you've, said you come to the conclusion that there is not some deep, dark, conspiratorial, all-powerful deep state, and yet you do call for some reform. You say there are some things that do need some adjustments. One of them is the Pfizer process and the the Pfizer, court. One of them is that tension? We discussed between oversight. That's effective and oversight. That is counterproductive. What do you think are the top priorities for reform to correct some of the things that the? Post Church Pike Committee. Consensus didn't get quite right and make those corrections without. Setting the seeds down for more damage to this relationship. I think the the work by the Inspector General. Michael Horowitz shown a giant problem with the FIS a process at the FBI itself. You know again why it's my job to be factual as a reporter, you know the fact that a FBI lawyer as part of the FIS application process to to surveilled Carter Page, you know, change the meaning of an email you know as I understand that the original email said that Carter page was was telling the CIA about his meetings with e Gore section and Russian officials and this lawyer reverse the meeting and said you know age was not. Telling the CIA about these meetings or not cooperating, and that's extraordinary I agree with Horowitz's findings that the based on what.

"Yes and it's. Let me say that kind of core conclusion of the book is. There is no deep state in a conspiratorial way that Donald trump uses the term. And you know again. We have powerful government agencies. We should oversee them aggressively zealously, and they make mistakes, and there was mistakes in the trump Russia. Investigation surveillance of Carter page shouldn't have lasted as long as it did. You know there is no secret cabal of CIA and FBI officials who? PLOTTED TO REMOVE DONALD TRUMP from office He made many mistakes his own that you know increases. His political problems But I just it's very important to me that Americans you understand that that is not true right and yet there's one person in a position of power other than the president who who does seem to believe quite a bit of that narrative, and he does play a key role in your book and you have you sight things going back to the nineteen seventies when he said things that certainly. Certainly led to this openness to the to the narrative, and that of course is bill bar who has a role with advising director in the seventies regarding oversight who has a role in the Bush forty one administration when he's talking about the use of executive power, you've written a lot about bill barn gotten to know the way he thinks the evolution of his thinking better than almost anyone. Talk to me a little bit about how you think. He has both fed into this. Evil deep state narrative, but also in a sense used it to push forward some of his strong. Power views in this administration. I think bill bark sincerely believes that the United States needs a strong presidency and executive branch. That is more powerful. In certain ways than Congress and the judiciary, he says himself in a speech to the. Society last fall, you know he said that if you look at American history. The branch that saves the country when it faces existential threats, the Great Depression. Wars the civil war it's the president that acts the. The president has. The legal authority in the you know obviously the parts of the government to do things and and. He says that's and he believes that the church reforms and other post Watergate reforms of the War Powers Act you know oversight mechanisms. I talked about independent counsels. He thinks are unconstitutional infringement on President's. Power and he complained that you know decisions from judges on the West Coast Trying to throw out the president's travel ban. Early in the new administration were improper. You know he thinks the impeachment. In many of the oversight, efforts by Congress are simply partisan investigations designed to slow down the administration and he really believes president. Should run the executive branch as needed that the only way the president can obstruct justice is sort of suborning perjury from witness or destroying evidence. And that nothing trumpeted muller. You know in bars, mind approach. Obstruction of justice and it's a very extreme viewpoint, but I. Just want to be fair to Bill Barn. That I think he believes this. It's not. He likes Donald Trump in wants. Just please him. He thinks that. Defending the presidency you know is is a way to aid the country and protect the country. And, in doing so enabling, those who who may actually be farther down that deep state narrative than he himself is I mean after all he has been in and out of government for some thirty forty years, not deep state himself, perhaps, but certainly more involved in it than the Steve Bannon's and Steve Miller is of the world. So do you think in a sense he's? He's opening up some boxes for the sake of executive strengthen executive authority that that would have an effect that even he might not like the implications of. Is Harder for me to answer I did not bar to not speak to me for. A.

"I. There's a warning and it was interesting. You know we can talk about well heard about he felt that Democrats, said had overplayed their hand on these investigations, and that the Ukraine investigation you know was reckless behavior by the president, but not you know enough to remove him from office, so yeah, it's a cautionary note to Congress that all this noise. has less of an impact with the public. If you're just constantly declaring your political opponents. A massively corrupt. You Know Murderer Amendment Ghazi. I covered Benghazi. I you know is a terrible tragedy. There was not adequate security in place, but you know there was no evidence of. Hillary Clinton you know personally ordering ambassador, Stevens and other Americans murdered. You know that was a conspiracy theory. That was not true. Does it does it strike you as interesting that as we're recording this, where perhaps in the middle of perhaps coming off the peak of it's hard to tell with this new cycle, the story of potential Russian bounties on the heads of American soldiers in Afghanistan and the lack of a response from the executive branch at least at the level of the White House for any strategic reaction to that, if that also resulted in three or more deaths, which is uncertain at this time to be clear, the reaction to the Benghazi attacks versus the reaction to these deaths, which perhaps there was some intelligence morning of quite some time ago. Does the difference in the reactions from Congress tell you more about? The counter reaction to the Benghazi overreaction, or does it tell you more about the simple hyper partisanship in perhaps the trump affiliation of the Congress right now? I think it's the hyper partisanship It's a failure in the news media in that, there's been a change since the seventies in terms of explosion about. Let's A business model collapsing in A. Clear the economic profitability of Fox being far to the right and MSNBC. You know being far, too left that at. That's very profitable thing so. I would I think the system is great but I think there's a there's a broader hyper partisanship in society that emerges in the second half of the book, a lot of the trump era. You now examines that like the trafficking and conspiracy theories for political gain I think it's. Pre existing distrust, and division is sort of been exacerbated about arise the Internet. And Cable TV news and an hyper partisanship so i. I don't want to just blame politicians for this atmosphere your. Of the book is of course about this moment in about trump, and his allies, scapegoating of the national security, and law enforcement bureaucracy, picking up on these themes that as you've noted are natural need for oversight in concern about potential abuses within law, enforcement and intelligence. How much do you think? This has been a conscious strategy because you note in several cases that the president himself seems to to pick up on something amplify. And then it's almost as if there's some intellectual association done post talk to try to put this into the wider theme of see. This is what we've always told you about the deep state. What what's your take on this? Do you think that this is a conscious movement and part of a larger plan or is this just political convenience driven from the top? I can't get into the mind of Donald Trump. My sense after talking with sort of current and former officials in his administration is that. He is deeply distrustful of people in general. He's a product of the new. York Real Estate World He. Grew up in a field where everyone was sort of exaggerating in spinning and trying to gain a little bit of advantage, and and so he thinks that they're government. Employees Aren't nonpartisan. He thinks covering employees. This is according to his aides. Work Harder for certain presidents that they like an an a slow roll ideas from presidents that they dislike. He thinks that reporters aren't trying to write like the most unbiased story they can. He thinks reporters are writing stories. That kind of. Hide things in the way that helped reporter advance their own career so. I think he believes he believes there were bureaucrats who are stopping him. I also think he doesn't have a good understanding of the government and the.

"An acknowledged the fear of the American public has. Of abuses by intelligence agencies sure so the phrase deep state was originally used to describe Turkey's military primarily, which did actively intervene in government and undermine political leaders and do the kinds of things that the. National Security and law enforcement agencies are are accused of trying to do, and of course others in referred to it for the Egyptian military, as well which blocked democratic reforms, but what is the deep state to those in the trump est camp, but even in different terms. What is the deep state? Liberals in two non trump conservatives across the decades? It's fascinating because I found that it is a relatively new term in the US as you mentioned. And then there's very deep division about. What liberals see it as and why Conservative see as the tournament? Liberals uses the military industrial complex. They fear a cabal of general's men. Large defense firms lead the country in endless wars. President Eisenhower famously warned of it, and then I'd say concert us today talk more about the administrative state, and they see a relentlessly growing sort of federal bureaucracy that's ceaselessly interfering people's lives, and an impinging on you know. Americans basic rights and freedoms so across the board There was a Momma University poll in two thousand, eighteen founded seventy percent of Americans believe that unelected officials and generals have. Undue influence on policy in Washington, so it's across the board, but it's a very different threat. Depending on whether you're talking to Liberals or, conservatives. You narrow it down largely in your narrative here to the FBI and the CIA, but as you mentioned the deep state in some of these narratives talk about the wider administrative state in about the regulatory authorities that that exceed what was meant by mere implementation of laws, so why not address the wider bureaucracy? The nine to ten million people somehow employed by the federal government or as in Turkey professors in the intelligentsia. What's the what's the benefit and the drawback of focusing solely on that national security and law enforcement segment of the federal government? In part I feared taking too much frankly and and I think there's a against a special. The're in special powers that the intelligence law enforced communities has. That interested me I. Think in the Digital Age. Surveillance is a very very sort of urgent. Issue for for Americans and I did have this sort of past experience interacting with members of the community. The National Security Community so I felt a little more comfortable I completely agree with you that there's a the same issues exist. If we're talking about a you know. EPA worker, you know or a national parks worker like it's you know. Do we need permanent Kinda career government officials? Can they be a political and who should oversee them? It's the same question whether you're talking about the CDC. Or the. You tell your story largely through the eyes, and the reflections of a small set of characters with people who have experienced back in government to the nineteen sixties like Jim Clapper and others who are much more recent like will heard, but you one of these people of course bill bar. I'll return to later, so let's put him aside. For now, but among the other characters or people like rich blee of CIA Tom, O'Connor Joan DMC Jim, Baker, why did you choose to to highlight this story kind of through the experience over the decades of people who who lived and worked inside the agencies and departments. I wanted to bring to life the deep state. The this term which we'll talk about more I don't really like the term. It's sort of political rhetoric to me but I. I think there is a permanent government. There are people who spend their careers working in the intelligence community, or in the FBI and the Justice Department and I so I wanted to kind of introduce them to readers and introduce the system that is supposed to prevent them from committing abuses. And that's why I kinda ended up with these characters. I will be honest. You and I talked when I was. Thinking of putting the book proposal about this I had a very difficult time getting people to talk to me. People you know in the intelligence and law enforcement community are very nervous about talking now. I have people explicitly people who had left worried about having their security clearance pulled. That would prevent them from continuing to work in a post government private sector job. People don't make much in the government as you know and so anyway. I was glad to the few who talked to me to readers, but I was also struck by how people were being silenced. And did you find that these people you talked to? Including those those people I just listed who were the basically on the record characters in the story. Did you find that any of them bought into the full idea of the deep state, or or did they more often agree with the need for oversight and agree with the need for political and judiciary branch control of some activities of the national security state. I, of course you know the ones. We're GONNA. Talk to me. You'RE GONNA say they like the system. And it's funny seeing you and. Your listeners, who who I would assume worked in many of these agencies. I I didn't I have a big concern about looking too credulous in this book? My characters do generally agree that there should be oversight Richard Blee. WHO's one of the first people I talked to this book who I knew from? Work as work overseas for the CIA. His complaint was. We did agree to oversight. We all. We're really worried when you talk about the history, would you know he said the CIA was? You. Know horrified when the Church Committee happened in the Church Committee reforms are enacted in the Senate and House intelligence committees were created, but they've learned to live with that system, and yeah. My main characters starting with rich police, said there there is a rules of the road now we obey them. We don't want to do something that one president tells us and then have declared illegal by the next president and possibly go to jail, so the theme I heard from. And others was that it's the political class. Men's violating the rules of the road that were agreed to back in the seventies after the turf performance right? Let's let's touch on a bit of that history before we get to. The heart of your book, which is the more recent invocations of the deep state narrative, so you tell the story of the Church and less so the Pike committees in the nineteen seventies and the roots of the institutions to prevent abuses by national security and law enforcement that came after that talk just a little bit about how successful you think. Those committees were at in a sense bringing about a new era of relationship between the legislative and executive branches and the reforms in the late seventies and early eighties that resulted. I think they were enormously successful I probably being generous to them, but. In this day and age to look back at a largely bipartisan investigation led by Senator Frank Church of Idaho John. Tower was the ranking Republican. That you know unrest decades of abuses in problematic behavior by the FBI some with the approval of president some without. And the wrath of of reforms that were made were extraordinary. I mentioned the..

"Well I. Think there's you know the ruling last week on Daca Shows that. That he he it all depends on how the court rules on these various things where there's pending cases on you know. Can Congress for Don? mcgann to testify as part of an impeachment inquiry that that ruling hasn't come about yet, but the DACA ruling last week was an example of John Roberts joining the four liberals on the court to say that the government. The trump administration's you know. A cancellation of Dhaka was You know capricious like it was so random that it was therefore illegal So I was much more worried that all of this executive privilege all this blocking of access to White House records at bar supported the president's tax returns. That's going to the Supreme Court also that that bar would succeed if the Supreme Court you know, decided these cases in trump's favor You know there's a lot more cases to be decided, but the judicial and you're going to hear me it over and over I. Want a divided government. I want three coequal branches holding each other in check so in recent weeks you see. The digital branch pushing back the judge pushing back on on the Michael Flynn case. Where are you know drops charges against Flynn so it's actually the judicial branch that's that's pushing back hardest at trump. Congress has largely failed. I mean that's the I mean that's. The I guess the the former you know the president's ability just by executive order to reverse things based on a whim but it. It sort of feels like you know the answer that they got from the supreme.

"Is the force fervor and comprehensiveness of assault overnight religion yours today this is not in decay. This is organized destruction secular residents in their allies. Have Marshall all the forces sources of Mass Communication Popular Culture the entertainment industry and academia in an unremitting salk on religion and traditional values abused. Give us an insight into Baas early years. How did he come because he was meant to be a very respected legal scholar? He was respected and and he is very good as a lawyer but he's always been deeply conservative. He sort of saw the sixty s as judicial activism with coming in in terms of affirmative action tune. And he's very much against abortion rights. A person that's close to bar said that the the viewpoint is sort of yes. DONALD TRUMP IS UNORTHODOX. But he delivers but you know what. It's not. Just that he delivers. Its that he does it in a way. That's not necessarily religious. I mean these are religious conservatives you kind of get it. They are a big force in this country but they have chosen to hitch their wagon to somebody. WHO's not religious? Maybe doing what they want him to do. Politically judges taxes abortion action rights. What is it that allows them to say? The means justifies the end. I believe it was Jerry. Junor said this about Donald Trump. He's a street fighter. And there's this feeling and you hear it again in bars rhetoric about siege that you need a streetfighter to stop this elitist assault which I don't think exists exists. But that's what bill believes. And that's what you know people conservatives feel so you you need donald trump to you know keep you to help you survive live. Keep your values your family and lives the you know your life the way you want to and this is the broader polarization of our politics. It's not about disagreeing it's at the other side is going to destroy you and your way of life. If you don't fight back and other parts of Clever Messaging Alan Dershowitz very canny lawyer very successful lawyer on trump's side push the envelope as to why the president should be impeached over this. Let's play it. Every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest. And mostly you're right you're elections in the public look interest and if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest that can can not be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment so again very clever messaging on the day. The verdict came Mitt. Romney is one Republican senator. Who voted to convict so not many people moving out of the the party dogma? Essentially it's it's clever messaging and it's Dershowitz saying that this is an impeachable offense and this is what many of the Publicans have adopted. which is it was wrong or questionable symbol? It's not enough to throw him out of office. But what's so. Scary is the sort of precedent of what Dershowitz saying so if the president thinks what he's doing is right right and he thinks it's good for the country that he or she be re-elected than they can break the law. And that's what's so scary and so strange about this moment in American history you you have Donald Trump's sort of violating all these norms arguably violating these laws and a third of the country. That's relate to him saying you know it doesn't matter and he says I didn't do anything wrong. There's this kind of black white thing. His response was no. It was a perfect phone. Call the kind of fear that you'll be held accountable if you lie too. Much that's existed said Cincinnatian has dissipates. Outraged completely is become to quote a phrase the art of the deal. Yes as you know Laurence tribe. The scholar has said about Baas ideas of presidential power. If those views take hold we will have lost. What was one in the revolution we will have a chief executive eh who is more powerful than the king? How would baugh respond to that kind of criticism? What's sort of extraordinary about bar and the speeches he's given? He said this throughout his life I want to be fair to him is that he is always thought that to keep this country together you needed a president that was strong and could act decisively. If there's a nine eleven style attacked the president does what's needed doesn't have to consult Congress and what we learned from sort of Nixon and Watergate is that you need an equal division of powers. You know it's very cumbersome but you need the executive branch fighting the legislative branch judiciary. They're also those three branches hold each other in check and you I do see with the acquittal of president trump the presidency is gaining tremendous power it I think it recouped the power loss from Watergate after nine eleven no now George Bush and Dick. Cheney took a lot of power there And I think the president's even even more powerful now let's go back to this sort of the religious just a theme that that sort of Unites Quite a few of the president's men again incredibly people wouldn't believe it if they didn't see it in front of their eyes because also Mike. Mike pompeo is a conservative evangelical Christian. He apparently according to Susan Glasser. WHO's profiled him for the New Yorker? He actually has an Open Bible on his desk. Ask What does trump see in them. I think he sees support. He sees people who embrace him and welcome him and I think he's committed to Kinda on a defying the elite. It's this sense. Donald Trump's always had that he's the outsider and he's persecuted and share that. I think that you know religious Americans feel that way day and they you know they. There's a feeling I get and I hear this. From sort of moderate Republicans will heard a member of the House that there's a sense that liberals liberals are all just overreacting to Donald Trump. He Says Syndrome that. He's he's kind of amateurish. This phone call is a sort of amateurish thing to do. The phone call with Ukraine and all the liberals are sort of overreacting to the president. And again there's and this is the broader problem of the kind of you know the integration of our politics. I think Mike Pompeo and bill bar and other religious conservatives do feel that they're under siege that this cultural elite is persecuting them for following their religion. I don't I don't think that's I hope that's not true. But this is how our politics has gone about like playing to the base Conspiracy theory you know. My side is under siege in this suggests that so anyway Baugh as the top law enforcement officer of this land has made a lot of interventions to the federalist society a Conservative Legal Society as the impeachment hearings were going on. He made this comment. And the fact of the matter is that in waging a scorched earth no-holds-barred war of resistance against this this administration. It is the left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and undermining the rule of law. So that's a real challenge. Chief law enforcement officials saying president's political opponents are undermining enshrouding. The rule of law. It's again I want. I respect bill bar. He's he's a very serious learning very effective one but but this is effective messaging. Your side is battleline. You're destroying the norm when clearly. Factually though it's been president trump and his administration. That is limiting. Information's never happened before for anything that Barzani's launched these investigations. He's investigating the F. B. I. Officials and intelligence officials who have said that Russia interviewing the election to help trump investigate the investigators. So there's a real fear that there's a chilling effect that this is saying to. FBI agents are intelligence analysts. Don't investigate this president. Don't question question anything he says publicly because you yourself will be investigated if you do that. And it's it is a very dangerous precedent that bar setting up. Anbar bar might believe that there are these conspiracy theories and what's so unnerving about this is where does it end bar thinks he's besieged these. FBI People in our investigation their air besieged. And everyone is sort of believing their own conspiracy. Theory and You know that frightens me and I worry sometimes about violence in this country really I think as we go through a very heated twenty twenty election there were bomb sent. You know two journalists in some public officials. I don't want that to happen. I hope it doesn't happen. But when you look at the level of rhetoric opponents of trump saying he's destroying democracy supporters of trump saying. No you're destroying democracy. You're trying to force him out of office in a coup. Oh that's very dangerous rhetoric. What does a very earnest Democratic Party do sticking to the facts being rigorous about the the truth of the matter in terms of facts and figures and trying to win a fair fight at an election? They've obviously not managed impeachment or or with the Mueller investigation instigation. What do they do? What is the tactics that they should employed? It's very it's very difficult. I think there's an a level of substance what's happening. Terms inequality healthcare was a huge issue in two thousand eighteen. Climate is a tremendous issue among young Americans and is to focus on those issues. Is it's also counterpunching. Because Donald Trump is so good at defining them and whoever the nominee is he will define them as he defined Hillary Clinton and there it was a sense that maybe this wasn't sticking on Hillary Clinton but it actually works so it has to be someone who mixes those two things. I think. Trump is cleverly sort of trolling his political opponents members of the press and. There's a tendency to overreact to the trolling. So it's kind of pushback. Define yourself and focus on issues. I want to engage you as a foreign correspondent again in this post truth world even something as strong as a as a as a criminal criminal trial against genocide is the conviction of warlords and lead is like in the Balkans now languishing for life in jail because of crimes against humanity Hannity perpetuating genocide even that can be questioned in this post truth world. We've got Peter. Handke hadn't been awarded the Nobel Prize for for literature and here in the past has questioned the notion that there was a genocide at Srebrenica which you've written about he's questioned Slobodan Milosevic's involvement menton all of this and now we have an American journalist. Jessica Stern who has visited Ratan carriage the Bosnian Serb henchmen responsible and judged and tried and convicted for crimes against humanity. She's visited him in prison and has written a sort of touchy feely book about my war criminal. I mean where wins this end. It's a strange thing. And the tactic too is that we'll all sides committed atrocities in Bosnian. And it's all about everyone that is not true. The vast vast majority of the crimes were committed by Serb radicals not by all Serbs and. But there's a tendency to kind of muddy the truth and again this kind of counter narrative and and it does grow. It is appealing to people. And it's I think it's easier for people maybe for Serbs to think my people didn't do this and and you don't want to think your your group is guilty. Here's it here's a quick and easy answer from Jessica Stern saying actually know everyone was bad. You know your group wasn't particularly surly bad so there's an appeal to that. I don't know where it ends. And it's just all this history being changed for people to feel better about themselves or people to score political points again. It's all very dangerous to me. And everything's at stake everything. It's an incredibly important election but I think people are listening the. US says deeply divided. It's very unclear who will win. And it's a real test for for journalism and democracy and we just have to stick to the facts in our traditional national tradition as journalists. Trying to get it right and David Rowe thank you very much indeed..
