It's a perfect note to switch to our next topic. Are friends of pivot welcomes two pulitzer winning washington post reporters carolina and phil rucker. Thank you for coming on. Thanks for having us. Well you guys are right at the top of the bestseller list right now along with several mark levin and jesse waters but nonetheless. You're right up there so you interviewed more than one. Hundred and forty senior administration officials advisors to the president. even the president himself at mar-a-lago. Seventy days after he left washington trump certainly seemed to think of himself as a kingmaker Is is he won. So i'd love your sort of thoughts and how you look at that right now. There's no question kara. That he is decided he's going to be a kingmaker. And there are. Certainly a ton of people waltzing in flying and trekking. Tomorrow lago to kiss his ring. Phil and i sat on the pretty brocade sofas in his lobby at mar-a-lago and we watched a parade of people come in a but also in among them were lawmakers who want his endorsement. He's not wrong that He has an impact on whether or not they're going to win the primary dan crenshaw was there When we when we visited just waltzed over to say he thought trump look great healthy. Inhale sir what's your what's your secret. They are meeting with him on a regular basis republican lawmakers who want to raise money wanna tap into his base. Wanna see some of his popularity and what happened. Fill in texas special congressional election last week. The trump back candidates lost. That's exactly right. He endorsed a candidate for a special election in a congressional seat down there but another republican candidate won that race in it. it shows you the limitations of trump's power Although there's a consensus obviously within the republican party including with the leaders here in washington that that trump's endorsement is influential and that that may have been a fluke and heading into the midterm elections there. They're all about. Trump's kill stephanie except of course. Republicans lost the midterms. While trump was an office. I guess the thing that confuses me so much Is what is trump. He's a branding genius. Why does why why is he still looked at as a kingmaker. I mean carol yes..
"rucker" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"Twenty four running mates to what we've learned about the behavior of people around the president near the end of the administration like mark milley bill bar mark meadows even make pompeo the law fair podcast january twenty sixth trump's final year with carol lennick and phil. Rucker caroline phil. Thanks for joining us on the podcast. There's so much to cover here from your reporting in your new book. I alone can fix it. And we're not going to get to all of it. And i think most of our listeners have seen some of the breaking news that has come out from this but but we're gonna hit some of the things that are the most interest to the intersection of national security law and policy here but first a big question about your approach to this book. This is something that covers. The final year of the trump presidency and really hits a lot of different issues from the pandemic response to the insurrection. To interactions between senior advisors requires hundreds of interviews. Lots of processing lots of analyzing and yet you pulled it together in just a few short months after the inauguration to have it ready for publication. now. And i've got to ask you. How did you find that process compared to the slightly more forgiving process of your first book about the trump presidency. Even i'm really glad you asked that question because we do feel like. It was quite an achievement to write a book in four months where we are not patting ourselves on the back but i. I think it was pretty stunning to be able to do this. We had huge advantage villain. I however which is that. We have been covering in real time. The trump presidency in twenty twenty gathering string and noticing of course the sort of stunning patterns of the president himself his character his toolkit which was woefully inadequate to deal with a real crisis and a series of them that hit in twenty twenty. The process luckily was was made smoother. By the fact. That phil and i had done this once before we figured out each other's patterns and rhythms and we developed a really good system. I think that the most time consuming thing after we figured out the frame of this story was really the hundred and forty plus interviews. We sat with some of the sort of front row witnesses to history for seven hours at a time at a sitting. We sat with people five or six times with multiple follow up phone calls that was incredibly illuminating and jaw dropping and took a huge amount of time. Yeah phil let me turn to you to expand on that because some of the reporting in this book is stunning. As i tweeted a few days ago when i was going through it to prepare for this time after time i found myself thinking. Wow things were even worse than we thought and we were pretty well tuned in on this so i have to ask a lot of this reporting is original to the book. Some of it was from interviews during the administration. Much of it was from interviews just after the administration. Why not report more of this at the time. Talk through the ethical choices that you in. Carol had to go through to decide what what did you hold for the book. And why david. I'm glad you asked that because it's a really important question and gets to the heart of what we do as journalists. You know i would say that. The vast majority i mean eighty five..

National New Hampshire Day with Matt and Emilio Barnard
"So each week, one of my podcast friends challenged me to find an episode related to one of those days and I'll be releasing it on the actual date occurs. So let's get to it. What is today's National Day? Hey Paul Matt. NFL. Bernard here we just got back from an awesome week into Hampshire Estate Near and dear to our hearts I'll there and my grandparents still live there. But neither of US are New Hampshire natives we have questions where in the PODCAST universe can we turn to learn more about the Grad State? Well Matin Amelio you've come to the right place but before I give a recommendation I'm going to give a little back story to everyone. When I started this podcast I decide that my guess would be podcasters not just people in the podcast. Matinee have been running mates since very early on going to last two podcasts movements together. But. He didn't have a podcast. So I never asked him to be a guest. Did Matt Start as podcasts just to be a guest on my show, the answer would be revealed later but let's talk about living free or dying I or at least pumpkins. Today. September seventh is national. New Hampshire. Day. I think a great place to start finding podcasts about New Hampshire is the outside in podcast which is made by new. Hampshire public. Radio. Now. It's not exclusively about things from New Hampshire but there are obviously New Hampshire base stories like this one. This episode talks about the Guinness Book of Records Event Were Keen New Hampshire holds a US record for most Jack Lantern in one place at one time. The town held an annual festival and everyone loved it. But as it got bigger and bigger so did the problems I mean if you've got over four thousand pumpkins around that can't be safe right? quaint was no longer the operative word. To find out what happened give it a listen, and let me know what you think by using the National New Hampshire Day Hashtag. Today's guests floral are Matin Amelia Barnard. As I mentioned Matt never had a podcast but due to the pandemic he decide to have some fun with his son with their free extra time and the Barnard's on the NBA podcast was born. In each episode Matinee, choose to colleges with well-known basketball programs and compare their famous alumni to see which school would come out on top. Many years ago I was a big college basketball fan and I still go to the big east championship every year when a pandemic isn't raging I also went to two final four tournaments many years ago. One. was in Atlanta and the other was in New Orleans, of course. So listening to this podcast gives some great of those times. For the episode I'm recommending it's the mismatch between Ucla and Oregon State. Since nothing is free in this world, I'm going to request that Matt and Amelia do an episode pitting Villanova and ruckers against each other. Short seems a little one-sided, but don't sleep on Rucker's there who history has some highlights amidst a lot of lowlights. For. Last recommendation, Matin Amelia recommend the Hollinger and Dunkin NBA show is debating the NBA's best they say and I quote.

Whistleblower complaint about President Trump involves Ukraine
"Quickly to the breaking news reporting yet again tonight. Washington Post is up front on this story reporting that a complaint about President trump from this yet unknown whistle so blower inside the administration involves a promise made to the nation of Ukraine the complaint according to the post centering on trump's communications with a foreign leader later. The complaint was made August twelve and B. C. News has compiled a list of the president's phone calls known to us and has so far confirmed that he spoke with at at least nine different world leaders during this relevant time period including a call with Ukraine's president indeed there on July twenty fifth one with Putin July thirty first also we should note that on August fifteenth former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and his chief deputy the veteran sue Gordon left left the administration still with US Carol Lennox Phil Rucker Jeremy Bash as is frequently the case. I have more questions for our guests than time. Allowed so Carolina's Lennick here goes Congress truly does not seem to know and if the law works. They're not supposed to know the identity of this whistle blower. Do you get that same feeling about the White House. Oh deep breath. I would just say that we don't know for certain Brian. Here's one thing I wanNA say about the whistle blower however this person's in a bit of a bind agree with Jeremy Very brave person to put their neck out like like this and some intelligence operatives have essentially said this is a career defining moment you're skiing off the edge of a mountain and and there may be no turning back it. It seems like it is definitely within the houses ability to know exactly who this is. This whistleblower has some advocates in the in the Inspector General the Inspector General has basically sent a letter saying you know we'd like to send this whistle blower to you directly Congress if we're not allowed to tell you what this complaint is about out and that that may be something that's going on behind the scenes right now discussion about whether or not this whistleblower can come forward with their own complaints and figure this out with the committees right now at this moment the acting director of National Intelligence has not given any approval for that but that is one option for this whistle blower Jeremy Bash another aspect of whistleblower law there was rudy tonight on CNN speculating this was a Democrat holdover deep inside the administration used the phrase deep state again as everyone was expecting is he allowed to talk about whistle blowers that that way is there not some equivalent of witness intimidation in these cases while I think clearly they want to silence anybody who sees wrongdoing by the president azan or by somebody at the White House they want to silence that person they want to cover things up but I'd like to see the leadership of the National Intelligence Director off director's his office have at least as much courage bravery as this whistleblower one of their subordinates usually in military or intelligence organization you want the leader to have as much bravery and courage as one of the troops that they command so we need to see that leadership from the from the community from the community head Joe McGuire but we also need need to see the Justice Department and the White House step aside and let the law play out. I do want to emphasize what Carol emphasize earlier. which is that if you look at the July twenty fifth phone phone call between trump and Zalewski this is really potentially about a holding out the prospect that we would withhold military assistance from Ukraine Ukraine unless unless the Ukraine investigate Joe Biden who of course trump believes is the most direct threat to his reelection? That's what this is about this is this is the two thousand sixteen campaign all over again except this time trump is president. He's got military aid to hold as a weapon to achieve his objective okay Phil Rucker. Obviously an unsaid part of this is that there may be more there may be more individuals like this this our mutual colleague. Nicole Wallace reported after talking with two veterans of the Intel business that they keep noting. Here's another their phone call from inside the House saying the house is on fire and I am guessing fill the White House may be bracing for the fact doc that there could be more yet Bryan. They're always could be more with this. President and it's one of the main reason for that frankly is his lack of discipline in in his interactions with foreign leaders.
