Voting Firms Turn To Defamation Lawsuits To Counter False Claims
"And another election Cos. Smartmatic have also filed defamation lawsuits against Trump allies and pro trump media companies with more likely to come. Bill Adair runs the journalism program of Duke University and founded the fact checking website politic Fact, I think this is a completely new Way of tackling misinformation as a journalist. I am I'm a little bit nervous. The idea of using defamation lawsuits makes us a little bit concerned. In particular, he's worried defamation suits could become a weapon against journalists just doing their jobs. But in the current moment, he's come to believe they have a role to play. We need to incentivize truth and we need to de incentivize. Lying money is what matters to AH Media company. Defamation lawsuit is a big way to do that. The suits appear to be having an effect. An anchor for Newsmax walked out on a live interview with the My Pillow CEO when he started making false claims about Dominion voting machines. Can we get out of here, please? But defamation lawsuits are difficult to win. You need to show the person knew or should have known a statement was false when they made it. George Freeman spent three decades defending people against defamation lawsuits as the in house counsel for the New York Times, He says media organizations have a First Amendment right to report on what important people say, even if it may be untrue. But he says the pro trump outlets like Newsmax and away in May have crossed a legal line by amplifying and appearing to endorse obvious falsehoods. They haven't stepped back, although I don't now. Your signs that they're starting to because they're worried about liability, and I think that's a good thing. Still, Freeman thinks the strongest defamation case is against Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. He made certain accusations on TV. But then he didn't make those in court because I think he knew you would be subject to discipline and perjury if you made them an official documents, so that would seem to be pretty good evidence that he knew they were false. Yet there are reasons why defamation cases aren't filed more often. Many conspiracy theories don't target a specific person or company and the cases can take years to go through the courts, so it's likely when the next presidential election begins. These lawsuits about the 2020 election will still be grinding along.

Baseless 2020 Conspiracies Complicate Ohio Effort To Buy Voting Machines
"President Trump's effort to overturn a Democratic election failed. But the departure from reality at the heart of that effort persists. Ah, favorite conspiracy theory of the president's allies involved voting machines changing votes. The evidence free claim was disproven in places like Georgia that recounted ballots on paper. But the false tale about Dominion voting machines persists affecting politics in a county in Ohio, Here's Nick Costello of Our member station Wcpo an idea stream Stark County is home to Canton, Ohio. It voted twice for Barack Obama and twice in landslides for Donald Trump. Last December, the bipartisan Stark County Board of Elections voted unanimously to replace its aging voting machines with new ones from Dominion voting systems. Since then, the county's three top elected officials, all of whom are Republican, say they've been getting an earful. The board of Commissioners has received hundreds of communications from concerned citizens. This is Commissioner Bill Smith, speaking at a public hearing about the purchase this response from the public as far exceeded the response any of us have ever received on any topic. Come before our board During this two hour hearing In early February, Smith pushed the board of Elections director to address voters fears that Dominion machines are not secure. They just want to make sure that it's valid counted so You're We're going with the one with the cloud right now. Okay over its head, a clouded not based in fact, but created by Trump and allies such as Rudy Giuliani. At least one conservative group has tried to keep stirring the opposition to start counties Dominion purchase. The county's top elections official is Geoff Matthews. He's also the chairman of the local Republican Party. On top of that he runs the board that tests in certifies voting machines statewide. At the meeting, Matthew's defended Dominion. And the integrity of the 2020 election, refusing to recognize that this election was safe, secure inaccurate can be viewed as nothing less than attacking the peaceful transfer of power. Some of the claims made about Dominion voting systems are beyond absurd and require one to suspend all critical thought. In the weeks since that meeting, the county's commissioners have yet to approve the more than $6 million contract, but a decision could come this month. Neither they nor Matthews responded to interview requests. Election officials here want to replace their machines before the fall. The particular Dominion voting machine that the county board wants to buy is a touch screen with a paper audit trail. It was used in 11 Ohio counties last year, according to the Ohio secretary of state's office. Trump won all of those counties. Postelection audits found the results in nine of those counties to be 100% accurate. The minuscule discrepancies in the other two counties were not attributed to the machines. Our hope is that we continue to have a really honest and open conversation about fax. Versus fiction case. Stimpson is a spokeswoman for Dominion voting Systems. She says the company has been available to answer local officials. Questions, sending a sales rep to meetings were showing up to do the hard work of cutting through disinformation and at the most granular levels in Stark County were also Very much supported by the Ohio secretary of State's office. The other way Dominion is trying to cut through the disinformation is in the courts. The company has filed massive defamation lawsuits against Giuliani and other Trump allies about their false

Has set up a registry of people who refused to take over 19 vaccines, and they're sharing it with the European Union. The President of South Africa has banned alcohol sales and orders new mask wearing mandates. Doesn't that make you really, really happy to be an American? I know. I am glad to be an American where I could push back if they did things like that here, in fact, This is a country where we're giving money out right? President Trump stepped up for people over the Christmas break. And he said, No. That's $600 deal isn't gonna fly. Even though Congress was stopping at this and that the Senate they were going back and forth and minutia was involved, and whatever have you, he said. Listen It's not enough. We need to make a deal or I'm not signing it. He put them on blast and Lo and behold, he got what he wanted out of the deal. The House of Representatives just voted and approved. The $2000 and they're sending it to the Senate, which I'm guessing. Like I said before in a perfect world. Will make its way to the people. But That still remains to be seen. But the House did vote to increase the direct payments in the year and coronavirus relief bill to $2000. Trump. Headed precedent is I like to call him then all this. Magnus signed the legislation into law on Sunday. That was last night after days of saying that the measure wasn't good enough with $600. Now McConnell, who's in charge of the Senate, with the Republican majority. They may or may not go through with this, depending on what happens now we already know that become McConnell and Schumer. Was going to try and come up with a funny name making for the both of them, like make Schumer but make Schumer The love fair, known as MC Schumer they they came up with a plan to create a veto proof majority on the defense bill that Trump said he would also veto because it was filled with pork. So I guess the question Presents itself. What's going on Who's on whose side? Who's fighting for the American people. I think that one is incredibly clear. President Trump Trump is definitely fighting for the American people. However. We can't say the same for each member of Congress because it seems like they're fighting for themselves when you've got 100 some odd million dollars out of the The Overall, massively large bill. Going to the United States and the remainder of it. Going to different pork projects. But not to the people. Huge big number. Not reaching the people. So I'd like your thoughts on that 1 808 48 92 20 to 108 48 W A. B C Something else that I wanted to talk about was something that we hear a lot about. There's a lot of talk going on. With respect to what happens on January 6th. And honestly, your guess is as good as anybody's. The Constitution lays this out wonderfully. However. It's only been used. Think once before, maybe, maybe twice, but at least in most recent history once And the situation hasn't been like this one. So What happens? I looked at a piece of American thinker. That I thought was really interesting. Now it's it's an opinion piece, so it's not to be taken This fact. They even write out a short Speech of what they think vice president. Pence should say. In order to challenge the votes that are being presented from the swing states. And this stuff gets a little convoluted, So I'm going to try and kind of methodically go through it. But this piece in the thinker, I think, lays it out. Well, not going to read you the whole thing. But I'm gonna read you a couple of portions of it because I think it lays it out well, On January 6th. The joint session of Congress will open up with Vice President Pence, presiding as the president of the Senate. His power will be plenary and UN appealable. You heard that right? As president of the Senate, Every objection comes directly to him, and he can rule any objection out of order or denied. His task will be to fulfill the oath of office to protect and defend the constitution. And to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed. This is a high standard, obviously. Pence is going to be faced with two choices. A. He can roll over. On the certified electors who've already cast their votes. For Biden. Or B. He can choose to.

I want to talk about all the things that are happening right now, because there's a lot going on. You heard about it on the other programs. You've seen it in the headlines, but I think it it's worthy of really focusing on because this new report that says nuclear weapons agency was hit by massive hacking campaign. It's a really big deal. And I think it's a really big deal. Because We've been told by those that are in intelligence in federal law enforcement in cyber security. Things they're secure. The election is secured. And my thinking is Every day. There's more information coming in about a hack. That may be worse than we anticipated it to be. For example, this is American military news. The National Nuclear Security Administration. The end and S a the U. S agency that manages the nation's stockpile of nuclear weapons is the latest in federal agencies hacked, according to a new report on Thursday. That's today. Officials close to the matter told Politico that then the end and s a Has evidence of hackers gaining access to the agency's networks in a mass spy operation that also hacked other various U. S agencies. The officials don't yet know what information the hackers have been able to access or steal. And it may take them weeks to find out what's been stolen because of back door was left open. And this is interesting, because the other night I was with you guys. And I told you Hey! Trump was right to fire this guy, Chris cribs. Who said that the election was super secure, safest thing in the world now, others have said similar but I think it's important to realize you can't just say it's the safest election to clean this election, the most secure election and then not put Any onus on any foreign actors for doing the wrong thing. That's something that John former Congressman John Radcliffe, now the director of National intelligence. He's made clear. That Iran has meddled in our elections. And we heard from him last October when he gave us this report, along with folks from the FBI and folks from the Cyber security Agency. I forget the full name. I think critical Infrastructure Security agency, CIA or Cyber Infrastructure Security Agency C. I s a formerly led by this guy Chris Crips. And He was clear that while we're on it, and we're protecting it, and things are good right now, We know that Iran is involved. We know that Russia's involved and now it seems that China may also be involved with this hacking, whether it's funding whether it's providing the material. Who knows, so this is what they've yet to do, but the big issue That comes about at least that people keep asking me about is what is going on. With tomorrow being the 45th day. Past Election Day. And that they being of significance because it's highlighted in an executive order on election fraud, primarily aimed at sanctions. Nine. A lot of people, including General Flynn, Who have tremendous respect for have Put a lot of emphasis on this executive order. Saying that it may be a fix for what's going on. And if there are people in foreign countries that have hacked into our systems or influences in one way or another, and he kind of describes how they're doing it. It's More complicated than I think Many of us think it is. That the United States government basically can, you know, take control of their possessions and, you know, lock him up. Throw away the key all that stuff and you can read the executive order on your own time. But the point is tomorrow's that fail safe deadline that if it doesn't happen within, you know, it's has to happen. The Intel report has to happen within 45 days. And today we find out or last night rather There will be no Intel report tomorrow. One we were expecting. Because there's all this new information and because of all this hacking that's gone on or, you know vulnerabilities that were exploited. So my thinking is Where are we? But I want to get a quick flash back to what Deanna Radcliffe said in October. Check this out. We would like to alert the public that we have identified that to foreign actors, Iran and Russia. Have taken specific actions to influence public opinion. Relating to our elections. First we have confirmed that some voter registration information has been obtained by Iran. And separately by Russia. This data could be used by foreign actors to attempt to communicate false information to registered voters that they hope will cause confusion, so chaos And undermine your confidence in American democracy. To that end, we have already seen Iran, sending spoofed emails. Designed to intimidate voters. Insight, social unrest and damage President Trump You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours, or you may have even been One of the recipients of those emails. Additionally, Iran is distributing other content to include a video that implies that individuals could cast fraudulent ballots. Even from overseas. This video and any claims. About such allegedly frog. Fraudulent ballots are Not true. These actions are desperate attempts by desperate adversaries. Even if the adversaries pursue further in attempts to intimidate or attempt to undermine voter confidence. Know that our election systems are resilient. You can be confident your votes. Our secure So we have to have confidence in our election system. And now let me tell you one of the things that I think that is doing the most damage here is what he just pointed out. He pointed out that the Iranians Have put out emails with videos attached and I've seen this stuff. Where It looks as if there is a Chinese person. Telling another Chinese person. How to falsify or how to print and the show them holding these actual falsified ballots and everything's in Chinese. And then it's his voice of translator, and it's on the bottom and It's this crazy sty. Get thousands of these emails. Hundreds, I should say. And I get it from everybody. Everybody sent it to all you got to see this past us on people need to know about this. Okay? Got it. And I was looking at it with a very healthy dose of skepticism, because that's me. I'm always very skeptical. And hearing the director of national intelligence. Say Hey, Iran is putting out emails with videos with this propaganda if you will, that is inciting social unrest. So you get something that's pushing you towards Civil War, Civil war civil workers. I've never heard so much about civil war, my life from people for on the Internet here, there and everywhere and I was asked him. So if you're armed to the nines All the bullets in the world and I don't encourage this. Who's the target and they never have an answer..

People are waiting forever to see of a doctor because this is a socialistic system. So what did he do? He brought in a free market approach and said, Let them see private doctors.

No. Let him see them.

I feel like Douglas MacArthur. I have returned. The field of battle. And it is this field of battle because it's steak is our freedoms are freedom of speech. Freedom of religion. Free and fair elections. All right, so That's Rudy Giuliani, and he's talking about freedom of speech and free and fair elections, and that's what matters. That's what we've I think it's what we're fighting for. I think it's what we are. All in this game for is the America that we want to live in the America that we were used to living in the America that we've always known. I mean, call me crazy. I don't know. I want to get into a little bit about what he's talking about about free speech and about the media. But I want to get to your thoughts and some of your calls before we get to that. So let's go toe Terry in Pleasant Valley, New York, Terry you're on with Rich Valdes on the Rudy Giuliani show. Wanted to say You guys got such great speakers on and I'm glad when I listened to the show is like man. Oh, man was thank God you guys were there and it's like It's not that they speak so great, but their ideas are there. The women and the men both and my point is, it's like let's get rid of the Washington politicians altogether. Let's go down there and get rid of him. I don't see a problem with that, Do you? Yeah. Well, thank you. I appreciate your call Terry and appreciate your thoughts. I think what You know what? You're talking about His drinking the swamp, Right? This is what President Trump went to Washington to do to drain the swamp, and the only way he was able to do it, I think was by telling the media Nope. You're wrong your fake news and calling them out every step of the way, And I think that's why he's been successful. He's been able to get the message out. I did interview a couple of months ago actually was a year ago was right before Election Day, 2019. Somebody asked me. Why is it? You know you're a Latino rich, you know, And I said, Yeah. My parents were born in Puerto Rico, where Americans, of course, but Puerto Rican born on the island of Puerto Rico, I'm born in Brooklyn. And they were like, Why is it that so many Latinos lean to the left, and, you know, in and of itself. I think questions like that are interesting. I could pose the same question and say, Hey, you're white, right? Why is it that so many white people get involved in Antifa Right now? I could make that argument but because I don't think it's a racial thing. It's really an ideological thing. But anyway, I went with it. And I explained to them. I think that people have bought into a big lie and whether it's when you're a younger person and guys like Chuck Schumer, who was you know our Our government person. I remember seeing him a lot growing up in not a lot, but you know, more than once he'd walk up and down Ocean Avenue night, see him and he's always out there. He's a real man of the people. He's He's a retail politician. Not like the new politicians like you see where you know, she'll tell people where the project Veritas offices. But do you think she'll show up in her district? Every now and again may be at the office, maybe one planned event. By and large the people that are there this one woman on a video. Check it out when you can. She tells the the undercover person's I can't trying to do a story on NAOC effort. You're doing lots of great things. She's doing great things and they go. Yeah. Now we've never seen her and the guys are you from the area shows you have lived here for 42 years? I've never seen her once I thought to myself. Heard the same thing you know last year and the year before. I mean, these air, the new style politicians that air just like, you know, I'll just tell everybody in social media world that I live in this place, and then I do stuff and they don't do anything and I mean, I didn't want to make this about, you see, but she's always a great topic. Is she So emblematic of what I think is wrong with politics today. But you see In the entire freshman class of New York State congressional delegation. Everybody who's in Congress from New York, at least from the Democrats side. Her and one other congressmen. Didn't get a single piece of legislation signed into law. All the rest of them did. Every other Democrat except her and one other dude. And I think to myself my goodness, the amount of influence that she's a mast. The amount of publicity that she's gotten. And she couldn't get a single bill passed. What does that tell the people? What does that tell the voters? You're great on TV that you should have a TV show or a radio show. You're you suck as a politician, I mean, because that's what it tells me. But perhaps I'm wrong. But my point is The media. The media since sent sensationalizes certain people. And they build them up and they prop him up and they tell that big lie just like I was explaining in that interview. This big lie. They tell you things like if you're a Republican year for the rich, But if you're a Democrat, you're for the poor. And I think to myself, that's bull. And the first time I heard it, I thought to myself well, I definitely want to be rich when I grow up. So if that's how I make a lot of money, I'm going with that team. And in effect, that's you know, kind of how my thinking was a little kid. But as an adult, I thought, man, I own a business. I was a barb around Barbershop. And as a barber, you work hard. You're on your feet, hours and hours and hours of every day And then you get you know employees and they start doing the same thing. Eventually gets a point where you make some money, and then it's like, Hey, why am I paying so much in taxes? The federal government's got their hands on you. You start to pay attention to politics. So when you hear politicians talking about tax cuts and others saying, pay your fare. Sure. You know, I think I paid Plenty of para Fisher. So you start the laugh of the Democrats ago, bro. No, thank you. I'd rather buy my own health care and make my own money. Keep my money, and I think that's You know the birth of a conservative if you will, At least that's how it was for me. I looked at that. And I said, You know what? I'm really not interested in what they have to offer. So going back to what you said about How do we get rid of these people in Washington? Or we should get rid of these people in Washington? I agree, 100%. We should drain the swamp. Trump did a great job. Setting the stage for that, and this second act this second term. Would be The perfect next, you know, Act two. For a trump presidency. Where he can actually drain the swamp where we can get rid of people that are career bureaucrats. The problem. I think that we see is he has really threatened so many people. That don't know how to do anything else. By eliminating So much of the corruption that he wants to eliminate Washington..

Our phone numbers 108 48 w A B c 1 808 for 8 92 22 We heard from really Rudy Giuliani in his opening statement in Arizona today At the hearing, he interviewed witnesses we heard from Janet Ellis. And now we're going to hear from what Rudy Giuliani had to say at the hearing. Check this out. The chief fraud is the mail in about that was the backup in case they felt too far behind. That's why they cut off the vote. At midnight one o'clock when President Trump was getting too far ahead, particularly in Pennsylvania. In Michigan in Wisconsin. Handle and also in Uh, Pennsylvania, so they cut off the vote. He was getting up to 800,000 in Pennsylvania, 300,000 and Michigan. He was even further ahead in Wisconsin. Cut off the vote. They turn things off. They changed everybody out, and then it's not your concern, except for the fact that you gotta look at Look at this somewhat in total. They started bringing in false balance. We have three witnesses to 100,000 of those ballots being brought into 4 30 in the morning in Detroit, with no Republicans around that they knew of Actually, we had to that stayed behind. In a Dominion employee who was willing to be honest. Not all of them are honest. We're learning so much about this Dominion software. It really is such an interesting thing. One of the Witnesses. Patrick Cole back He was a poll watcher in Detroit. And it's so interesting. I mean, these systems are not things that I work with on a regular basis, and I would suppose that you don't work with them either. But What we find is that they've been used in elections around the world with very questionable results. But what's interesting is that they can be pretty easily manipulated as I was learning from the hearing today, and I want you to hear in addition to what Mayor Giuliani said, because again, people are saying all you make all these allegations, but there's no proof. Again. The proof will be when a court actually takes this and there's some subpoena power given to from the court saying, you know we're going to subpoena this server and we can take a look at it. And I think that's what these hearings therefore, to establish those things. But of course, everybody is a genius. And if you're holding on, please hold on. I'm gonna get your calls, but I want Tol play this quick clip of audio from one of the witnesses and their testimony in today's hearing. Check this out. Key fraud is the nail in about that was the backup in case they fell too far behind. That's why they cut off the vote. At midnight one o'clock when President Trump was getting too far ahead, particularly in Pennsylvania. In Michigan in Wisconsin. Handle and also in Oh, uh, Pennsylvania, So they cut off the vote. He was getting up to 800,000 in Pennsylvania. 300 cut because we just played that when I want you to hear from the witness, and I think this witness is Statement is a really interesting statement because he talks about his experiences with the Dominion Voting system. Check it up. If you could just tell us in your simplest way possible as an expert, What is your opinion as to the validity of the numbers that were certified today? By the secretary of state. And the governor about this election. If I was an executive at a publicly traded company, I would never sign that because I risk jail time and having all my money taken from me in lawsuits,.

Of Control, in nineteen ninety, there were over two thousand, two hundred murders in new. York. City and by the time, the mayor left in two thousand one that number dropped to about six hundred Times Square. Authority.

"Was doing everything he did at the behest of the president. Did he do. Some things did out details or me with some people without doing long briefing of the president. I guess that's possible but I think that Rudy Giuliani was not being rogue the other reason why I think that argument doesn't hold water. Is You had multiple witnesses. This is talking about how things were vetted around what Giuliani was doing and in particular again obviously ambassador silent has a reason to make sure that he's giving the impression that everyone knew what was going on. Is that the defense of him. Because some people were beginning to throw him under the bus along with Rudy saying well you had silence and other folks they were kind of rogue someone very credibly in other areas not fully credible but in this area I think he was. He said over and over again in his testimony. The everyone was in the loop. I mean he used that phrase repeatedly and he kept talking about the things that he did with respect to Ukraine and you know the linkage between this for that as being at the direction of the president of the United States he does it over and over again so I think this idea that allies of the president have. It's a typical. You know strategy to blame some other person to have a fall guy. But that's just not with Rudy. Because of what Rudy himself would say really himself has said and what other witnesses like can bastards Tomlin have made clear the other thing about rudy himself might say he was on Fox News over the weekend and he people think he goes away but he doesn't I don't know he's he's always there and at some point he said I've seen things written like he. He meaning the president here is going to throw me under the bus when they say that A. He isn't but I have insurance. What did he make Rudy? Giuliani saying. I have insurance on Donald Trump. I don't you know he is then said Rudy has himself said it was as being sarcastic in funny kind of sarcasm. Well the reason speech. It's hard to. It's sometimes hard to explain Elaine.

I mean you're seeing lots of articles also with background quotes from you know members of the military up and down the chain of command to her like despondent over what happened because I'm sure they were their friends I mean they were working of with the Kurdish forces like very recently but I mean i WanNa talk about the international reaction in a minute but before we get into how the world is reacting we should talk in about who the Kurds are and why we've been fighting with them so here's some basic facts all like I was reading a BBC article that said there's about twenty five to thirty five million Kurds in Syria Turkey orrock Iran before the Syrian civil war started and we had actually accurate demographic information from Syria the Kurds made up about five to ten percent of this searing nations a significant number of people that you know they're they're all different religions but I believe the majority of them are Sunni Muslims in Isis has been targeting them since about twenty thirteen that's why they've been engaged in some this really brutal fighting with us with the Peshmerga forces that came over from Iraq So ben what else do you think we should know about the Kurds in in Wide they've been such a close American ally well first of all there's this kind of history of betrayal right so the quick version of it is after World War One Dan the world was essentially being divided up in different people were being given nations for their homelands the US went to the peace conference at four one and trying to get the Kurds a homeland a nation of their own and didn't essentially traded away at some point and so there's kind of original mythology of being sold out then after the Gulf War people will remember that George H W Bush didn't go all the way into Baghdad to depose Saddam Hussein he then urged the Iraqi people to rise up against Saddam Hussein the Kurds did they were slaughtered horrifically ultimately we did put in a no fly zone to protect them that was also seen as as a level betrayal then the obviously fought with us in the Iraq war are critics you Bama ministrations critics will say the failure ear of the Obama Administration to leave ten thousand troops in Iraq at the end of two thousand eleven was a further betrayal of the Kurds obviously we've talked about the this we didn't have any approval from the Iraqi government to do that which was a deciding factor for us but at the same time but then ended up happening and is when Isis came back into Iraq in two thousand fourteen we had to initiate our operations against Isis because they were about to slaughter this population called the city's is distinct religious minority northern rock not even Kurds and we intervened to essentially save the cities and went to the Kurds to be the groundforce not know they had to save themselves to but they're all a helping say these other people and from then on we started supporting the Kurds in I in Iraq and then what was interesting is we'd never really worked with these Kurds in Syria before but obviously we had to follow isis into Syria and they were tenacious fighters I think people should also know in a region that has all kinds of albums with respect to women The Kurds in northern Syria have a very egalitarian view of the role of women in society so you see women integrated security forces into their politics it's just a very different and distinct ethnic identity they have the manifest itself in different politics but as as a kind of besieged minority in places like Iraq and Syria they've turned to us the United States as a partner as people can protect them and help them and now this is kind of the final betrayal just leave them there at the risk of massacre and I've talked to some former colleagues of mine in recent days you've worked with them been to northern Syria who were literally saying to me people that I sat across the table from could be dead right now or certainly have been displaced in the that must mean psychologically to the Americans who work with them you know what a weight I can't even I mean peop- anyone who served in the military in northern Syria Brett mcgurk who was the lead for Obama and then trump on Kenner isis policy I mean you can tell by his tweets that he is just despondent you know I mean yeah the other thing to note is this may be the Turks will roll in in the Syrian forces role in and this will be a fast brutal campaign this could turn into a long-term insurgency where there's just more fighting for months and months and months and northern Syria which will just make the the lives of average people living in the area yeah worse or Assad could come in and round up a whole bunch of these Kurds and torture and kill them you know I mean this this is really you know it's is really ugly things you can't put any there's just no way to to avoid how how starkly bad this and and and again knock it just to watch Lindsey Graham pivot from being mad at trump or twenty four hours to like I'm not working with Donald Trump on these sanctions against Turkey it's like Oh my God like how can you stomach this how can you not want to hold this guy to count and I think we think it does connect to the impeachment piece because it's like it's about it president who's literally betraying any sense of national interest in his foreign policy how these guys can stand by him after this you know as we've talked about Republicans have long had an affinity for the Kurds for a lot of reasons including in Syria they protected these ancient Christian populations I mean this should go to the core of what I thought people Zi grand believed in but it's like almost like as long as he has his talking point of like I'm working hard with trump you know to sanction the Turks he'll just let let go of his criticism yeah I mean you guys know we're not trump fence we should everyone should be clear like Obama middle out of mistakes in Syria you can blame since he made in Iraq those were brutally tough policy voices fucked up a lot of things trump in this case made a choice to tell air to one to conduct a military operation that everyone knew was going to end the way it is ended so far and he owns that forever yeah I mean look I I do think there's one thing trump says that has some germ of truth Ah Stumbles on which is the thing that opened up this entire Pandora's box was the Iraq war right you invade a country in the heart of the Middle East and break it into pieces you're going to be dealing with consequences for many years to come I frankly think that oh big part of the Syrian civil war was tied to that war in Iraq this kind of sectarian dynamics Iraq manifests itself in its own way in Syria al-Qaeda and Iraq the insurgent group that emerged terrorist group that emerged after the Iraq invasion Morrison Isis were you can go and on then you have Obama all kinds of decisions we can look back on and say that could have been right that could have been wrong frankly sometimes they questioned whether we should have called for Assad to go in the first place without judge again to go which is kind of a a dovish view sometimes I can think should we intervene militarily I can tell you though we were trying to do the right thing you know our motivation was always you know even the famous you know not bombing Syria after the incident sincere belief that congressional authorization would be the right thing for military force and that a diplomatic agreement to destroy chemical weapons could be useful this this is just different the people trying to both sides us it's a bullshit tactic because there was never any case where like Obama had more it's like literally everybody's telling him to do the opposite and he knows if he makes the decision some US allies will be massacred and US geopolitical. series will immediately be the winners of this I forget Obama I can't think of any US president that's made a decision like that you know because of one phone call from Oregon so yeah I know we beat up on trump this one is kind of different because some of the other things like you know are we have an point of view but North Korea talks about the Iran policy this is kind of one hundred zero percent y'all there's no justification for what trump did I hope part of the takeaway from the shows the most these are tough choices yeah and they're not easy calls but it was not a tough call to tell her to one stand down yeah don't ask our allies but another story of the trump administration is you know.
"rudy giuliani" Discussed on The Journal.
"Welcome back since he came into office. Donald Trump has had personal attorneys who work work outside of his administration. The most notable person in that position was Michael Cohen who left the role and later went to prison for tax fraud related to his work with trump in April of two thousand eighteen. Rudy Giuliani became trump's new personal attorney and occupied a similar role in kind of gray area not not part of the trump administration but deeply involved in trump's work and it's in this capacity that Giuliani starts actively pursuing Lukashenko's is claims so how does Giuliani pursue this investigation into the Biden's so it starts with this may trip that he tries to plan to Ukraine to meet with with the precedent there okay so I've decided Sharon. I'm not going to go to the Ukraine. You'RE NOT GONNA go. I'm not going to go because I think I'm walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president that's canceled because he's just getting hammered from all sides about the impropriety of a president's foyer going to meet with a foreign leader out although this wouldn't be the first time that he's done that while serving trump's lawyer but the next month he doesn't give up he goes to Paris and meets with with an official in the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office and then in July about a week before the president would talk to with the Ukrainian president in this now famous phone call. Rudy gets text from an official at the State Department. The person from the State Department who texted Giuliani is named named Kurt Volker the text said Dear Mr Mayor. Are you back stateside. Let's talk or get together who is Kurt Volker. Kurt Volker is actually also in a volunteer capacity to the US government. He's the US government's special representative for Ukraine. He's been serving in that job since 2017. You've worked with the State Department but it's not quite an official role. He checks in again two days later and then on July nineteenth nineteen. He says he really enjoyed breakfast this morning. As discussed connected you here with Andrew Euromac who is very close to President's Alinsky a suggest reschedule a call together on Monday maybe ten. AM or eleven am Washington time so volker offers to introduce Giuliani to a top aide a senior your adviser to the new Ukrainian President Zilenski and these people the Lansky and his aide. They're not connected to lose cheng-kuo right. The claims about Biden are not coming from them. Yeah and the timing of this text message is interesting because it's it's six days before trump is set to talk doctors. Alinsky but it also comes right after trump has directed a hold on nearly four hundred million dollars in aid that set to go to Ukraine in the fall. What's your interpretation of that timing. It's not clear who knows what at this point by. A good chunk of the funds are State Department Sutton and the other thing I would note is that Giuliani said that he doesn't become aware of the hold on eight until much later in the summer. Does the three way call happen and as far as we know the three way call happens. We don't know about the contents of this three way. Call between Giuliani the personal lawyer Volker the State Department armament volunteer and your Mac a top aide to Ukraine's new president but if any side were to bring up the claims about Biden it would be the US side remember there had been a Ukrainian election. Lukashenko was not in the new government and the new administration was not connected to his claims and then a few days after that call another call happens the call between the president of Ukraine and president trump this this is the call at the center of the current political turmoil and on this call trump is the one who brings up the claims about Biden and repeatedly tells the Ukrainian president to talk to Giuliani so it was really interesting to us that he's not only saying investigate investigate Biden but work with this person who's not officially in the US government and really has no official role other than to serve as his personal lawyer earlier in an investigation that at that point is dead but makes clear how eager he is for the Ukrainian government to do what Rudy is asking for and did did Zilenski people then talked to Giuliani yeah so your Mac the top aide. Alinsky and Giuliani meet about six days after the phone call in Madrid. This is a meeting that is cited in the whistleblower complaint and we know that Giuliani again takes these opportunities to bring up the Biden investigation to bring up investigation into possible election interference in two thousand sixteen and to press all these issues that are at the heart of this now now and how do we know that he brought those things up because he's told us this is Giuliani again after the call between the two presidents trying to get at the new Ukrainian administration to look into Biden and questions start to reemerge about whether in these meetings Giuliani was acting in an official capacity on behalf of the United States when he was not authorized to do so Giuliani has defended himself by saying the State Department knew what he was doing so the State Department has confirmed that cripple or connected the two of them the if not elaborated on what sort of briefings they subsequently got after this meeting so we have rudy's word that he told the State Department what happened after he met with them and based on the text messages that we've reviewed where the State Department or at least Kurt Volker is very eager to talk to him very polite very respectful. We don't have any reason to believe that rudy would think it was inappropriate what what he was doing. What is volkers interest here is he loyal to the State Department or is he loyal to trump he is more the State Department creature he someone who has a long history of working for the US government so he's he's more in that category in the whistle blower complaint released released yesterday the whistle blower pointed to the relationship between Volker and Giuliani Volker is mentioned five times in the Report Giuliani. Johnny is mentioned more than thirty and did you talk to Giuliani yesterday. Yes what was he like and is there contrition or is he still just. Gung gung-ho moving forward on his quest to get by investigated I would say contrition is not part of his vocabulary. He if anything is his doubling down on all of this now. He was extremely fired up both times. I talked to him yesterday. Feels like this is an inappropriate investigation. Education feels like he's doing everything right it one point yesterday. He texted me. How come I'm not a whistle blower so he definitely feels like the Democrats. Have just gone crazy that there's absolutely nothing to this complaint and his text to you. Why isn't he being considered. A whistle blower is because he he sees that him pushing this investigation into Biden that he's revealing some inappropriate actions that Biden took when he was vice president. Is that kind of what's underlying that exactly yes. He feels like he is raising an alarm about a a huge controversy and everybody is refusing to cover and what stands out to you as remarkable in Giuliani's role in this story. I think what's remarkable. Is that he had been. He got himself into trouble so many times but he always just managed inch flute passed it and it sort of never really bogged down. He made a lot of comments that would have sort of taken down any other boy at the president but he's managed to survive all of those the question here is trump gonna stick by him more or is he going to at some point have to cut him loose. If Rudy had never started consulting in Ukraine to think we'd be here right now. That's a good question I think the interesting part of this whole urging Ukraine to investigate Biden thing is that it is something that came from Rudy it doesn't as far as we know seemed to be some pet interest of the president so you know had he never met with Lukashenko learned all these details that he finds so damning about the Biden family and told the president about that it's possible it wouldn't have come up onto call.

"And ashley you've written about this you've talked about it to some degree what does this about what could be an innate need for drama on the part of the president i think it says that it's inescapable we often write about the president sort of preferred method of governing and managing which is to do so in chaos and i think what you're seeing with the legal team right now is a microcosm of that there was a lot of talk when rudy giuliani came on people were a little skeptical but they were excited to have a big name excited to have an television tat attack dog and there was also excitement when the president brought at flood on that is a well respected lawyer who is a sort of person you want in the trenches with you when you're facing this sort of an investigation but the way the president has managed sort of not quite pitting one against the other but plotting strategy with rudy giuliani the flood and the rest of his team didn't know about i talked to an outside adviser today who basically described the other lawyers as simply baffled by what's going on this is the president's management style this is what he seems to prefer on he stated that publicly and articulate and it and it also seems to be an almost instinctual urge but you are seeing the downsides of that right now with his legal team barbara on that point ashley just made i want to show a tweet from someone we all know and a colleague of peter's maggie haberman tonight kind of put it very succinctly one person close to the white house sums up trump's legal strategy right now as two teams there's the trump rudy team and then there's the lawyers of elegant turn of phrase there but do you imagine right about now and that flood is really happy he moved all his stuff across town from his partnership and williams and connolly to a small office in the west wing i imagined he's quite frustrated to see rudy giuliani out on television after he himself says he's only about halfway through learning the facts of the case i mean no lawyer should be out doing that and there can be some very significant consequences of rudy giuliani as trump's attorney making these statements on his behalf those are statements.
