"Day of Donald Trump's presidency. President elect Joe Biden and Vice President elect Kamila Harris will take time to remember those who died during the Corona virus pandemic. The nation's death toll hit 400,000 this morning, and both incoming leaders will speak tonight at the Lincoln Memorial, reflecting pool to honor the victims, and the new administration is slowly taking shape this morning. The Senate Finance Committee has begun its confirmation hearing. For Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen. Democrats and Republicans immediately squared off over how much more support the economy needs during this pandemic. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat who's scheduled to take over his chairman of the committee, told yelling that his top priority is to avoid the mistake made a decade ago in Congress withdrew support for the economy too soon after the housing crisis and delayed the recovery from the last recession. But Republican Senator Chuck Grassley pointed out at the hearing this morning, pointed out all the support that's already been approved and says he was concerned that the incoming Biden administration wants to raise taxes and enact what he called massive spending programs.

How A Cybersecurity Firm Uncovered The Massive Computer Hack

"David Greene in Los Angeles. And I'm Noel King in Washington, D C. Good morning. How should the U. S government respond to a computer hack that breached both government networks and private companies? Most cyber security experts think Russia is responsible for the Hack and NPR's national security correspondent Craig Marie has been talking to some of them. Good morning, Greg. Good morning. No. Well, perhaps most importantly, is the half over. Absolutely not. It's still ongoing and we're continuing to learn details. We've heard now that the Treasury Department hack occurred in July, and like other government departments, this was just uncovered in recent days. Email of top officials was hacked, though apparently not. The account of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, also no evidence that classified systems were breached. This information has come from Democratic Senator Ron Wyden, who was briefed on the matter and we can expect this kind of information to sort of dribble out in the weeks and months ahead. As government agencies and private companies go through their computer networks. But clearly much of this is going to fall on the Biden administration to make sure the hack inside government computer networks is over that there's clear attribution on who did it and then to decide how to respond. These major breaches have happened before. Does the government have a strategy to deal with them? No, absolutely not. Again. There are no rules or red lines are clear consequences for adversaries who get caught Now, today what we end up seeing is lots of hand wringing and ultimately some sort of limited responses. Right now, With this current hack. We're seeing wrestling over the definition. Some members of Congress called this an act of war. Now, cyber experts and the intelligence community do see it is a big deal but more along the lines of traditional espionage, albeit on a massive scale. I spoke about this with P. W singer cyber expert at the New America think tank. This was not an act of war. This is more cold War style back and forth espionage stealing of secrets. That's why you've seen the reaction from the intelligence community to be a mix of Oh, my God. What just happened? And Gosh, we got a tip the hat to them. What a coup for them. So if there is no clear way to respond, Greg what of the range of options here? Traditional spying might generate public criticism, kicking out suspected spies, perhaps, um, sanctions, But when this has happened, it really hasn't changed the behavior of Russia. Any other adversaries they still seek. Hacking is a low cost high return proposition. Singer says the U. S can and needs to do much more and should create deterrence in two ways gave a boxing analogy, saying US needs to punch back harder and also develop more resiliency to absorb the growing number of cyber blows. Make the parallel to Mike Tyson. You don't hit him because he'll punch you back in the face vs Mohammad Ali rope a dope right through resilience where you don't hit me because it just won't work out for you. What else do we know? So we know that the government and private companies were both hacked. What do we know about the private companies? We haven't heard that much from them. Have we? No, that's right. But we are hearing more of the hackers clearly targeted. Many tech companies in this makes a lot of sense. They hackers Coley want these cutting edge cyber tools that these companies have, so presumably the hackers can use them themselves. And the first organization to detect this hack two weeks ago was fire I, a prominent cyber security firm, Fireeye CEO Kevin Mandia spoke with NPR's all things considered yesterday. And he said, these hackers were extremely sophisticated, and once they got into the system, they carried out an operation that was specifically designed to attack fire. I he realized very early on as they launch their own investigation that this was a level of tradecraft he'd never seen before. And he said the scale of this hack really drives home the need for a strong national cyber policy. It's time this nation comes up with some doctrine on what we expect Nations rules of engagement to be And what will our policy or proportional response beat of folks who violate that doctrine Because Right now. There's absolutely in escalation in cyberspace. It just seems astonishing that we don't yet have the doctrine in the year. 2020. The US, however, does have a lot of cybersecurity might what is preventing us from using it more effectively? No. Well, you're still seeing a lot of things that are in the works. Homeland Security Cyber Agency was just launched in 2018 and focused on the elections this year. And and by all accounts, did I did I did a good job. Right now, There's the military authorization bill on the president's desk waiting to be signed. It has money for additional cyber upgrades, and by all accounts, you're seeing a lot more cooperation between the government and private tech companies. But this country is losing huge sums of money due to the cyber attacks. And a couple years ago, the N S a director Paul Marcus, Sony was at his confirmation hearing. And he was asked if adversaries fear the U. S and cyberspace, he said the answer is absolutely not. MPR's Greg Marie, Thanks so much, Greg. My pleasure. America's hospitals are really

Bipartisan group of senators announces $908 billion stimulus plan, aiming to break logjam

"On. Roy joins us with the latest. And maybe her rendition of a christmas carol. I don't know you know it's up to you. I do love the christmas season. Joe and what democrats are doing right now is trying to make the christmas season a little bit more mary. For unemployed workers there is interest on both sides of the aisle in breaking this logjam on capitol hill surrounding neta virus. Relief package and today more than thirty democrats are getting behind a new push to extend expiring unemployment benefits for twelve million workers before they go away at the end of the year. Virginia senator mark warner is leading this effort with a letter to the leadership of both parties. That says letting these payments lapsed during the holiday season would be cruel and that it would hit the services sector and the art especially hard. The letter says these workers are all facing job loss. It has nothing to do with their skills abilities or performance now there have been some preliminary conversations in the senate on bipartisan measures. That might be able to pass alongside the government funding bill next week and so this letter is just one indication. Democrats appear to be coalescing around the problem of what they're calling the benefits cliff also today senators ron wyden and sherrod brown the top democrats on the finance and banking committees as well as colorado senator michael bennet. They're unveiling bill that would extend these expiring provisions and it would also reinstate that six hundred dollars in enhanced unemployment benefits that has been more controversial and has been one of the sticking points in these broader negotiations surprise. This could be a sign that democrats might be willing to accept something smaller than that to you. Trillion dollar deal

Why Section 230 is under attack

"The Internet as we know, it depends on a couple of sentences. It's section two thirty subsection. C of the communications decency. act, of Nineteen ninety-six. And Tech companies and Internet freedom activists say without the rights prescribed in those sentences, the platforms will use every day facebook twitter youtube read it. They wouldn't have existed. That may sound extreme but defenders of the law have had to make a strong argument for keeping it the way it is. That's because over the last few years section two thirty has come under attack from both sides of the aisle section to thirty should be revoked the me should be revolt number one for Zuckerberg and other plants that's pretty foundational. Love the the modern. Race Internet exactly right and it should be revoked. was made new village just remove or totally changed to thirty. What I think we can say is we're going to regulate let's say provision within a regulated. Most recently, Attorney General William. Bar sent his own proposal to Congress about how to change the law and ceremony report here Rico is here talking about it Hey Sarah hate entity. To quickly go over what exactly section to thirty is, what was it meant to do? So section two thirty is the law that gives you know, Internet, platforms like facebook twitter reddit immunity from lawsuits about what their users post on them. So I mean if you post something on facebook that's libellous defamatory about somebody oh, that person can sue you for libel like they could sue anybody else right but then they can't sue facebook just because it hosted that content. So, basically, this dates back to the early days. The Internet you know the mid ninety s when Congress is trying to figure out. How to legislate speech on it, there was a core case where a judge ruled that an Internet service that had moderated its forums was there for liable for something liable lists that a user posted on it and that if they had it moderated it at all then they wouldn't have been responsible so that decision you can imagine. The effect at this, if it remains today would have had on your those services that either not allow any third party content at all in which case like facebook and twitter doesn't really exist. Or they would just not moderate anything. Section thirty was sort of this happy medium. Now, Senator Ron, Wyden co-authored it, and it basically said that Internet service could moderate the content its users posted on. and Be Immune from any. Civil lawsuits resulting from what those users posted and so what? Senator Ron Wyden said often is that it's like a sword and a shield, the shield being from lawsuits, and then the sword being being allowed to sort of moderate content. Guess what happened here you know both Democrats and Republicans seem to have objections with section two thirty. Why did this falso firmly out of favor? I mean a lot of people still do like I think especially the platforms that are protected by it but a lot of the arguments against it pretty much boils down to things. The first big reason is that there are websites that sort of abuse their immunity protections to host. Content that is objectively bad and harmful, and one example of this would be websites that had child sex trafficking ads on them which because of section two thirty, their victims had like no legal recourse. So a law called. The foster which was passed in two thousand eighteen removed immunity protections from websites or platforms that hosted. Child Sex trafficking ads basically. and. Then the second argument that we see a lot which is more conservatives make is that because of the huge part that these websites sort of play and how information spreads this companies gets a basically determined the speech that has allowed on those platforms and a lot of conservatives feel that they make decisions that sensor them and their ideas and their speech wall leading lot of progressive. Speech pass and they don't think that's fair. So they want to change the law in a way that means that those platforms have to moderate in a way that they believe is sort of politically neutral gotcha. So now there's this announcement from the department, of Justice Right Trump's department of justice for changing to thirty. What does that say is that sort of the conservative argument you'd expect Yeah I mean Attorney General Bar has really doesn't like section to thirty and kind of made it emission of his sort of all along to to make it do what he thinks it should, and so the latest thing here is a proposal for what legislation that Congress will pass should look like to to make section to thirty. More applicable to what the Internet. Is today he thinks. There's two parts of this and the first one this pretty like along the lines of system foster, which just adds a couple more types of content that are excluded from. The immunity protections that's like child-sex-abuse terrorism and cyber stalking. So it would remove section to thirty protections from an additional types of content, and then the second thing would force platforms sort of spell out their rules for Speier, allowed to say or not say apply them equally. Not Make Arbitrary Decisions de Conservatives believed that they make that's unfairly sensors them.

All about Section 230: What It Does and Doesn't Say

"Hi everyone welcome to this week's special episode of sixteen minutes on the news, our show where we cover the headlines from our vantage point in tech, and covered tech trends, offering analysis frameworks, explainers and more I'm sewn. All your host and today's episode is special, not just because at three times sixteen minutes long, but this is our very first time on the show now thirty two episodes in bringing on a special outside guest. Our topic is section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act, which makes sure. Sure that interactive websites are not liable for their users content as their distributors, not producers of content, and so we also cover the recent news around twitter and the president's tweets, and the subsequent Executive Order Unquote Preventing Online censorship all from this week, which is also all bang out against the broader, more profound cultural context of George Floyd. Minnesota and way beyond and this episode we do a deeper dive on the technology and Policy Aspects of platforms and content moderation, including an explainer on the evolution. Evolution of section, two thirty, and all the key nuances of the debates around it and content moderation to understand, my special guest is Mike Mas- nick, founder and editor in chief of tech dirt, which is a leading tech news and analysis website and my longtime go to source for these topics he also by the way, recently launched new section, dedicated to tech and covid coverage as well as a new form with different voices, called the greenhouse, which focuses on tricky tech topics and lots of the. The trade offs involved like privacy and so on you can find both of those at Tech. DIRT DOT COM, so that's the INTRO and why? This is a special three x episode of sixteen minutes. Let me now kick things off by asking Mike. Since the premise of the shows, the tease apart. What's hype? What's real and to break down and explain what section to thirty does and doesn't say especially since the Broader Communications Decency Act Mike has been around since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety six. The laws actually very short and very simple and very straightforward, and I should note that the Communications Decency Act itself did have. Things that I did, but all of that was determined to be unconstitutional. So the only thing that survives is section two thirty. There was a big lawsuit ACLU versus Reno in the late nineties, and that throughout most of the communications, Decency Act is unconstitutional. The thing that remained was to thirty so what section to thirty does it really does two things, and they're somewhat related, and they're both incredibly important to the functioning of the modern Internet the first thing that it does is it puts the liability on the person actually violating the law, so if someone goes onto. Onto a website and says something that is defamatory or otherwise violates the law, the liability for that action belongs on the person who is speaking and not the platform or site that is hosting that content. The second thing that it does is that it says if a website chooses to moderate its content or anything that is put on the site. Then it is not liable for those moderation choices I'm so glad you're bringing that up because this is the number one thing I wanted to start with which is the flip side of it, not just the protection. Protection, but the fact that they can moderate whatever they want, so can you actually break down Mike? What does that mean so where it came from? Which I think is important is to give sort of the history very quickly is that there were series of lawsuits in the early nineties that tried to hold Internet services that had moderated some content, and the were defamation cases effectively brought up the most famous one is stratton oakmont versus prodigy, and as a little fun aside. Stratton oakmont was a financial firm that was immortalized in the movie The wolf of Wall. Wall Street, that's a fun fact. Yes, and Stratton. OAKMONT got upset. Because people in prodigies message boards were accusing the company of being up to no good, and so they sued prodigy, and a court said that prodigy was liable for the libellous statements, because prodigy positioned itself as a family friendly service that would moderate content, and because it moderated some content to try and take down cursing or porn anything that it felt was inappropriate that anything it left up according to the judge, it was now liable for as if it had written that content itself and that. FREAKED OUT! People in Congress namely the time to members of the House Chris Cox. A Republican and Ron Wyden a Democrat, and they put together section to thirty to say wait, that's crazy. If a website wants to moderate content to create for example, a family friendly environment, it shouldn't get sued for the content that chose not to take down. And so that section of CBA two-thirty is designed to make sure that any website can moderate content how it sees fit in good faith to present the content in a way that meets with the goals of the service

Richard Grenell is a disastrous DNI choice

"President trump has long been accused of priding loyalty to him above all other qualities. Way above experience way above independence. His critics such as house speaker. Nancy Pelosi today are arguing that the appointment of Richard Grenell to be the acting director of national intelligence is just the latest case in point. Grenell the current. Us Ambassador to Germany is hardly known for his intelligence expertise. He is primarily known and beloved by conservatives for his outspoken defense advocacy of the president and his policies as C. N. N.'s. Alex Marquardt reports. Grenell also has a long history of rhetorical knife fighting as a fierce even vicious partisan the director of national intelligence is a job that by definition demands experience requires objective presentation of intelligence and a non political approach in Rick Grenell. The president has chosen. The direct opposite are found. The position of director. Nash intelligence a very tough. And so I I can't imagine The challenge that somebody has in that position learning. Abc's of intelligence on the job. American critics like Democratic Senator Ron Wyden on the Senate intelligence committee blasting the choice today as proof that president trump values unquestioning obedience over the safety of the American people. That sentiment echoed by House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi today. Who said Grenell's sole qualification is his absolute loyalty to the President Senior. Republicans though are silent over making Grenell. The acting director which by law is someone who shall have extensive national security expertise. Grenell has no intelligence or military experience. He's the current ambassador to Germany. A loyal attack dog for president trump. Who has a history of vulgar sexist now deleted tweets about women including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former first lady? Michelle Obama saying Michelle. Obama is working out on the biggest loser. She is sweating on the East Room's carpet. There are times where what was intended to be. Humorous turned out to be not so humorous. While many trump allies want to see the president tweet less Grenell supports. It makes my job so much easier. I like having a president who's willing to be very tough. Grenell replaces acting Director Joseph. Maguire a retired admiral and former navy seal who has been leaving the intelligence communities seventeen different organizations since last August McGuire had stayed under the president's radar rarely speaking in public. But he did voice his support for the whistle blower who sparked the investigation that led to the impeachment of president trump. I want to stress that I believe that the whistle blower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout so jake. This now means that yet another player in this Ukraine investigation. Joseph Maguire is being pushed out the news coming the same day that a top Pentagon official John Rude who is also involved was asked to resign truth tellers and non loyalists clearly not valued by the trump administration. Meanwhile Rick Grenell tweeted today that this is a temporary appointment and that the president will nominate someone else to be Director of National Intelligence. Soon

"Com. Slash explain. We're here with Senator Ron Wyden. We're talking about all kinds of issues around politics and tech Senator Wyden if the Democrats do take over the house, what do you imagine will happen? Well, lymphocytes millions of Pena's. Let me tell you what I'm working on. I wanna make it clear in the new privacy Bill that I'm working on is if you are misusing consumer data and harvesting people's information wrongly, I wanna come after you and I want real transparency on how people's data is being used. And I want consequences if a company loses or abuses somebody's data in one part is thinking about mentioning with you. Data breaches are not just about losing a bunch of business records. You put people whole live into a criminal spies and right and and scanners. And then it's also a national security issue, which is what we were talking. What do you expect are Democrats? You know, it seems to me that gamma has used to be so close with tech companies. Now they aren't so much. There's there's much more I think, Doug Amies or more worried about Democrats than Republicans for sure, although they're certainly worried about Republicans in different ways in terms of them complaining, they don't get enough access essentially. Well, if the Republicans we'll have to see. But if the Republicans pick up this stunning argument that we've been talking about Kevin McCarthy and Ted Cruz that the government should take control of private companies dictate how they operate. I'm telling you that will be a real opportunity for Democrats like myself who believe in the first member who have libertarian streak to show this will just be a disaster America for they don't get to. Of course they're complaining that they don't get to speak their generalized complain of conservatives that they've been shadow ban. They've all kinds of allegations of not being able to have. There. You've pointed out your own articles. They come up with these kind of new terms to get everybody out, you know, get everybody all all all scared. I think they did pretty well. Last election. Yeah. And they also shut up. I don't think anyone seems to shut up on the internet, whatever party you happen to be in. So you, but you don't think they'll be more onerous regulations or regulations at all. When you look at your, for example, there quite far down the road compared to this country. We've got to pass a privacy Bill that ensures that people get to control their own data. They get real transparency, their consequences. I wanna get. I want paper ballots and audits for the twenty twenty election look at what we've seen in the last couple of days. I said a month ago month or six weeks ago that Donald Trump seemed to be on his way to creating an enemies list, national security advisers. When I say that to your listeners, I disagreed with John Brennan on lots of stuff. I was the one who took took him. On when he spied on the intelligence committees files. But I think this idea that they're moving to put together, some kind of list is really it's not just Richard Nixon, but it's gonna compromise national security. All right. And then so what else might be passed? I want lection security privacy Bill, election security. And I wanna make sure that as we work through the two thirty issues, we don't walk away from something that I think has been of great benefit to this country. My wife the other day that I read, dear, that you create a trillion dollars worth of value in the private economy shown strand bookstore.

"We're here with Senator Ron Wyden. He's from Oregon, and we're talking about election, tampering. We're talking about Alex Jones and all kinds of issues that politicians are going to be very much involved with going forward with tech companies. Tech companies are under scrutiny. There'll be hearing soon around all kinds of issues with the heads of Twitter, the Facebook, Google. They've already been on Capitol Hill. Mark Zuckerberg spent on Capitol Hill. I want to get into your assessment of how that went in a minute, but let's talk about the Alex Jones thing. The more detail because everyone's had initially they were very much against doing anything about it. I had podcast with Mark Zuckerberg where he talked about allowing the stuff to go on and then they made a switch removing out Alex Jones from the platform. So did Google soda around YouTube. So did others Twitter's held firm tuck me about the difficulties of dealing with stuff like that because there's first amendment issues and there's freedom from consequence of what you say to? Well, I think what the Alex Jones case shows. We're going to really be looking at what the consequences are for just leaving common decency in the dust me that to me and I'll have more to say about, as you know, I'm working on a privacy Bill. I think that the heart of it has got to be citizens, controlling their private data. I think there's gotta be real transparency. There's got to be consequences for misusing someone's a data, but this goes right to the heart of the real value of section two thirty. And I guess if people want to say, you know, we ought to just have the government start dictating. And by the way, one of the most stunning aspects of the last couple of days it's defeat, conservative politician people like Kevin McCarthy and Ted Cruz. They are essential. Really saying that the government should run private companies. The government should dictate to private companies what they're doing. I'm sure it's very popular with their base, but doesn't happen to be the right thing. And I think there is a much better model that was bipartisan that really relates to what I call rights and responsibilities that was what Susan tooth rights do you think they should have now, how do you assess their reaction to just let's us Alex Jones as the example, how do you assess their reactions to him and the changing nature? I do think at some point, Twitter is gonna throw him off the platform, my guess is they're preparing that. But how I've been, I've been disappointed in is how long it took and how they really are not looking at fleshing out a policy. What's hard in this area is you know, tech is so dominant in our life that it is sort of the ultimate in kind of ad hoc. Policymaking. Something goes on Tuesday. Congress folks come back with their policy on Wednesday or Thursday history. Is that usually not very good mean that's what leads us to Susta and foster soap and all these acronyms that were bad, you know, bad policies and what I said to them in the few conversations we'd have. We haven't had many. Is what you really wanna do. If the, if you can build around a core set of value I talked about and I was saying, is that I thought I very much enjoyed your article where you said, hey, there's not just about bunch laws. You gotta you can have a crate full laws if you don't get your values. Right. And so what I'm going to be trying to do in my legislation is to really lay out what the consequences are when somebody who is a bad actor, somebody who really doesn't meet the defense night right principles that reflect our values if that bad actor blows by the bounds of common decency. I think you gotta have a way to make sure that stuff is taken down..

"As you know, the founding fathers vision, that elections would be primarily local in nature. Right? So what everybody's gonna say, what's the federal nexus? So the pot of money and my hope is that this will be a principal going forward should be, hey states. You don't have to take any of this money if you don't want to. But if you do, we are going to require that we do more and lot of these machines. I guess they're just going to scan scan mean. They're not going to let people really see that their vote is what they intended. Their vote is their vote. Right. And then what is the responsibly the social media companies? What kind of pressure can you put on them? Because essentially these. We're not hacked this. You're talking with machines, you're talking about the possibility of hacking in this case they were. These platforms are used for exactly the way they were built. They weren't particularly hack. Yeah. The social media companies basically got outed in two thousand sixteen. And since then practically every single thing they done has been. Either a bizarre idea or not really doing much of anything that's actually going to going to help people. I mean, first of all, there is in this dark period, some things we can look to. I'm trying to follow the opportunities for down ranking because I think that might create a light at the end of the tunnel. But unless these guys are going to be theories about using the part of two thirty to get after people who behaved irresponsibly, then I think they are looking at some changes there such as pardon me, such as it's like, what changes Mark Warner lays out his plan and that is really sweeping kind of stuff. I mean, you know, I'm a libertarian or somebody. Excuse me. I'm somebody with a libertarian streak. Okay. All right. And. And I'm a first amendment, you know fan, but I'm really concerned about some of these things that look like they might be prior restraint and the like, what I wanna see is I want to see the company step up and that's why I mentioned Alex Jones, alcohol. All right. I'm going to get out in the next second it. It's apropos of relaxed. Elections is Alex Jones and election, tampering is really what section do thirty is all about. I mean, let's just kind of walk through the Alex Jones end. The election kind of issue a mentioned. I got this libertarian streak marched amendment defender. But when you have somebody who calls the parents of murdered, kids liars and then claims that their kids don't exist, then you have blown past, right? The bounds of common decency and platforms needed to take the slime down the same is true in terms of the election. All right. So when we get back, we're going to talk a little bit more with Senator Ron Wyden about what that means because I think there's big debate about whether they're private, they're public, whether their government, whether they should take it down. Obviously, Twitter has a different point of view. When get back, we're talking about all that and more with Senator Ron Wyden. Thanks to ZipRecruiter, which is the presenting sponsor of Rico decode and the smartest way to hire in the business of tech.

"Senator ron wyden of oregon state's and yesterday you put on the record testimony the demonstrates why the odor of presidential abuse of power is so strong count to my questions in talking to senator warner about this dinner that you had with the president i believe january twenty seven all in one dinner the president raised your job prospects he asked for your loyalty and denied allegations against all took place over one suffer now you told senator warner that the president was looking to quote get something looking back did that dinner suggest that your job might be contingent on how you handle investigation i don't know that i go that far i i got the sense my job would be contingent upon how he felt i excuse me how he felt i conducted myself and whether i demonstrated loyalty but i don't know what i go so far as to connected to the president was trying to create some sort of patronage relationship in a patronage relationship is isn't the underlying expected to behave in a manner consistent with the wishes of the boss yes or lease consider how what you're doing will affect the boss as a significant consideration let me turn to the attorney general in your statement said the you and the fbi leadership team decided not to discuss the president's actions with attorney general sessions even though he had not recused himself what was it about the attorney general's own interactions with the russians or his behavior with regard to the investigation that would have led the entire leadership of the fbi to make this decision our judgement as i recall was that he was very close to an inevitably going to recuse himself for a variety of reasons we also where where facts that i can't discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a russiarelated investigation problematic and so we were we were convinced and in fact i think we'd already heard that the career people were recommending the recused himself that he was not going to be in contact with russia related matters much longer in that turned out to be the case how would you characterize attorney general sessions adherence to his recused.
