"Um, through the prism off Who's saying it? I mean, Rudy Giuliani was on television for two months, Uh and and I and he was on Fox a lot. But I never saw any compelling or convincing information from Rudy Giuliani and I was frankly disappointed in the quality of the evidence that he seemed to offer. I mean, he's an experienced guy. I just didn't see it. Now, If you want to send me some material that would would change my mind. That's fine. But I dismissed a lot of the stuff that is on the extremes of both. Okay. I mean, I dismissed the Alex Jones stuff. Don't even look at it, okay, because he's been so we know who Alex Jones is. Well, he's he's the guy that said that Newtown, Connecticut, the massacre of 20 kids and six teachers didn't happen. That's terrible. Yeah, it was I that doesn't even I don't like that doesn't even right. But there are people out there who want to believe you will believe Alex Jones, all of you saying I mean the material. Yeah, He was the president's lawyer here. You know there. I know that I know, and he's seen the hard drive. Well, that's fine. Then then, then here's what? Send me the material and I look at it. Okay. And if Rudy Judi Giuliani has seen the material and wants to present the material look, do I think that there may be stuff in the hard drive? I don't know the FBI's been holding it for a year. Have enough confidence in the FBI. Even though I have been critical of the FBI that they will do the right thing and I again that's the problem right there then. But then you know that's that's the difference when experiences Well, that did. The DOJ has a 97 98% conviction rate, and they openly admit 10% of that prisoners are innocents. I've never seen you expect that to do the right thing. Nate, let me tell you something. Maybe 8% let me tell you. You're in my ballpark now. Okay? You're in my ballpark. What I will tell you is this if you get indicted, and you're going to federal court, the chances of you of beating that indictment like maybe a half of 1% Okay, because because they have inordinate ability. Theo get access. They are much more effective than local prosecutors. But you're talking to a guy. Who for 15 years spent a good portion of his television career going after the FBI. You probably don't know what I did if you if you don't know me, Well, Google, Google, Me and Google Media Google the surviving Lemoni case.

They served. A total of 109 years in prison, too, died in prison. Two were released as result of Victor Garrow, the lawyer for Joel, so body and the work that I did as a reporter for WBC. I'm not trying to brag. I'm just trying to tell you the truth. No, no, I qualifying. I respect that. I really do. It took us four years to get Joseph body who was all these men were innocent of the murder. Okay. Um, Three of them had involvement with organized crime, and the FBI's attitude was if they didn't do that. Get something else, So we'll put him away. John Durham came in as a special prosecutor here in New England in and held had a grand jury, which indicted an FBI agent FBI agents that I would have to eventually have died awaiting trial for a murder in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Not gonna bore you with all the details, but if you look me up If you look me up, you'll understand that that I have been extraordinarily critical of the FBI. Okay, so send me the materials, and I will look at it, mate. But Um, I I still don't understand how you can say that you expect them to do the right thing That just doesn't That just shocks me. You send me the materials leave a phone number. I will have a conversation with you. But I gotta go because we're gone with concrete. Very good. Very good Rock. Don't hang up. Robert, give you my email got to take a very quick break to those callers on the line.

"And Donald Trump. They're going to try to impeach him. They delayed it a few days. The Senate trackers. They say they want to give him an opportunity to get proper counsel that might include Rudy Giuliani. I don't know who's maybe it's Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it's a host of others. J Sac allow who defended him in the impeachment trial, the previous one in the Ukrainian situation that's up to citizen Donald Trump. But they want vengeance. They have a blood feud and a vendetta against Rudy Giuliani. That's why I'm advocating that you listen not just the Rudy up next in his own defense 3 to 4 because he was eloquent yesterday. But also to John Catsimatidis in his program from 5 to 6 when he will have Alan Dershowitz to explain the legal procedures that call about how you actually disbar a lawyer. How you sanction a lawyer. How you put him up on the shelf and render him impotent in terms of the tools that he has been prepared with. In order to go into the courtroom and defend his client or clients. This would be an outrage, an absolute outrage if he can do this. Because if they could disbar Rudy if they can sanction Rudy if they can put him on the shelf if they can take the microphone from him, which you know they want to do, But we heard from John Catsimatidis, our owner and operator earlier today with Bernama gherkin, Sid Rosenberg Said no.

That's not what we're about here at W. A. B. C. And on behalf of Kurdish leader I believe if you want to deal with hate speech, a speech you disagree with the way you we saw that it's for all of us to have more speech and talk radio gives us all of that opportunity and that microphone should not be taken away from Rudy Giuliani Keeping you up.

Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est They called me a baby killing sodomite But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that My family we get death threats You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud

President Trump Might Abuse Pardon Powers in Remaining Days in Office
"Trump still controls the pardon power for the next thirteen days or twelve days by the time people listen to this garrett. How likely do you think it is that in trump's final couple weeks the most imaginatively spiteful use of the pardon. He could come up with other than perhaps pardoning south in his children rudy. Giuliani is a kind of blanket. Amnesty to all the people who the justice department would want to prosecute in. Fbi one arrest. I think that that is not necessarily a sure-fire thing. But i would certainly put it into the more likely than not category that we're going to see in the next thirteen days and in fact i think we might even see it much more quickly than that because i think one of the challenges that we are seeing right now is rising calls for the invocation of the twenty fifth amendment by mike pence or the impeachment of the president. Both of which. I think are a highly unlikely scenarios but donald trump might very quickly feel that he has a real ticking clock a against his presidency and might be tempted. Act and remember. We have seen blanket. Amnesties like that before. Jimmy carter granted blanket amnesty to vietnam war draft dodgers as president to try to reset that political debate and allow people who had been caught up in that war for all variety of reasons to be able to re enter society in an open way but not to sort of quibble with at the premise. Of your question ben. But i i guess. I'm not really clear. Trump issuing those kinds of blanket pardons is certainly plausible. It certainly would be a grotesque abuse of power but they almost certainly would be val part. And to the extent that there are certain martin's it seems overwhelmingly unlikely that a new attorney general or deputy attorney general would be inclined to want to prosecute anyway and an attempt to sort of test those legal questions and so you know i don't know that trump issued a blanket. Pardon would would complicate things right. It would be a hideous abuse office. But what choice would the fbi or the justice department have but to say. We can't continue to investigate or prosecute people who who are covered by this pardon. Oh i think that's exactly right. I think they would have no choice but to say exactly that they would say exactly. That and the result would be that you had an attack on the capital for which. Nobody could be prosecuted. And i understand as we've been talking the first Case has now been announced or at least it has shown up on the docket of the court. Here in dc. Is that right Yeah i think that that first set of discrete federal charges have filed Against at least two individuals and in these appear to be pretty traditional sort of a salt charges for trespass and assaulting capitol police officers

"And he was very candid while taking other questions from reporters about other topics. That he does believe that there was fraud and that fraud exists in every election. He was clarifying, doubling down, saying he didn't believe that it was this pervasive widespread fraud that we keep hearing about that we keep hearing regurgitated in the media. I want you to listen to what he said. Check this out. I've already commented on fraud. Let me just say that. You know there are fraud, and unfortunately in most elections, I think we're too tolerant of it, and I'm sure there was fraud in this election. I'm pretty sure there was fraud in this election to. It's something that Attorney General Bar and I agree on. It's clear that there was fraud in this election, and even the attorney general's acknowledging it. The question is, what does it raise to the challenge? That was described by Peter Navarro and so many others when they talk about how they've done this and That does remain to be seen. I would say to me, it looks evidently clear. But The jury's out, and that's why we have guys on the job like America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, now With respect to all of that. President Trump still says we're getting closer and closer now he joined on Sunday. I do a show on Sundays called This Is America.

"For the former mayor of New York City America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. What's up New York? I am bitch about death with an S sitting in for America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, as he continues to Maintain his Position right? Like a soldier in a fox hole in the swamp in Washington, D C calling in every day doing his show from 3 to 4 right here on talk radio 77 WBC and he has another show because he's so nice. He comes back twice. Right here nine o'clock, However, he's getting ready for the next phase of whatever he's doing with the president, then. Can't wait to see what's going on with that. 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..

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..

I am rich Battle desk about Bess with an S sitting in for America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. He's doing a lot better. Let me tell you something. About an hour ago we heard from Mayor Giuliani on Twitter, and he said he was feeling strong. Amen to that. Our thoughts are with him and Jenna Ellis and the rest of the Trump legal team is the convalescing. They get better. And they continue fighting from the hospital bed fighting from their present location. Where can't even take a day off, And that's okay. I mean, you have to, you know, go with the flow. And It's better to hear it from Mayor Giuliani than to hear it from me, and we're going to get to a couple of clips from the mayor. But legislators are playing with fire, in my opinion if they don't uphold the will of the people. Today was a sad day in our republic. Because of the Case that we just saw in the Supreme Court that didn't get any traction didn't get any action. But We have to fight on. We need courageous patriotic Americans to step up and take our institutions back. Because this is a government of the people for the people and by the people, and we need to act like it. So yes, the state legislatures have a duty. And, more importantly, They have a duty to the people, which is more important than a duty to their careers. Supreme Court justices have a duty To America. They have an oath that they've taken and we expect them to uphold. What we're seeing right now is cowardice. And it's not encouraging. But there was an old saying, growing up, at least for me as a kid in Brooklyn. What I eat won't make you fat. So their cowardice doesn't mean I've got to be a coward. Doesn't mean you have to be a coward. With that. Let's go to somebody we know that is not a coward. Somebody we know that is going to take the fight. All the way. That's Mayor Giuliani. I want to give you the phone number so you can join the conversation. 1 808 48 w A. B C 1 808 48 92 22. I want you to hear just the first installment. We've got a few of these clips because Mayor Giuliani called into his own show. That's right here on talk Radio 77 w. ABC today at three o'clock from 3 to 4. And my colleagues Juliet Huddy and Radius around I We're hosting the show in his stead, just as I am right now, And here's what the mayor had to say. Check this out. Pretty much. All the symptoms are gone. Have no fever. I have Very little cost. It's just about also gone. I've been walking around and I think they're gonna let me out tomorrow morning. Well, amen to that. I'm glad that he's got no symptoms. I'm glad that he's probably getting out of the hospital tomorrow morning. We have nothing but affection for Mayor Giuliani and appreciation for all the work that he's doing him and Jenna Alice and the rest of the team that speaking of Jenna Alice Printed something out a little while ago, which is an article that's written around the statement that she made a little while ago, which was that the Supreme Court chose not Tonto provide emergency injunctive relief. Understood and that there's still an opportunity to For the case to move forward. Based on the papers for a writ of, sir she, Ari. Now listen. I'm no lawyer, nor do I pretend to be one on TV or the radio. But It seems that they are prepared to take this the whole way. And The Electoral College has not yet voted, and that's the statement from the campaign. Campaign generalist Giuliani the legal team, They've asked the Michigan Supreme Court to review a legal challenge seeking meaningful access. This is for pole challenges to observe the ballot counting in the state. Although Michigan's already certified its 2020 election results, and this is in the epic times From today. December 7th. They're asking the secretary of state jostle invention. T O make this change. Why will they believe that? Josh? Excuse me. Joshua Jocelyn Benson violated the state's constitution similar to what happened in Pennsylvania. And the state's election laws by permitting the counting of absentee ballots without meaningful access for Paul challenges to observe the counting and processing of those ballots. The Trump campaign is arguing that Benson's actions also violated voters constitutional rights. To fair and lawful elections equal protection. Quote, saying Michigan Citizen's constitutional rights are being violated by Secretary Benson's failure to prevent unlawful ballots to be processed and her failure to ensure that the statutorily authorized challengers have a meaningful opportunity to observe and challenge the process. This is a big deal. Because how can you count these things? If you're supposed to have challenges from both sides and again, this is rudimentary stuff. But when you don't follow the rudimentary rules, what's to stop you from following the even more important, bigger rules? And this is, I think part of the problem that we face overall. And Like I said, not a lawyer. I'm gonna look at this through the lens of being practical. You know. American kid born to parents from Puerto Rico grew up in Brooklyn and As a teenager came up in New Jersey. Worked in government for a little bit working the media And all I can say is Everybody has a political interest.

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,.

"rudy giuliani" Discussed on Impeachment, Explained
"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. The intent of people who are hard to understand so the single.

"Run it's a groundbreaking new music documentary podcast exploring iconic touring bands who've had a lasting impact on media culture and beyond season one of long they run incompetence in that we we have in the White House yeah those sanctions are not going to work I mean everyone's GonNa do what he has to do until he's done yeah then maybe it will stop but yeah and yeah that's exactly what's going on the mindset that kind of gets you right in and that is most prevalent with his Iran policy where all the people who've been making his Iran policy are exactly the same people he says conflict with Ron real that's the ultimate test of whether you're ending the endless wars is not getting into more of them he justifies that by saying Saudis paying cash for these troops what a grossing to say about US troops they're not mercy aries free higher by Saudi Arabia simple toying guard for Mohammed bin Salman like these are people who are supposed to represent a set of values in the world riding in a kind of corporate nationalism I should add like I just don't know how the US military can stomach all this he throws under the bus in runs over with the bus our closest allies the fight against Isis the Kurds he's treating them like mercenary same Saudi Arabia I mean this is not a commander in chief who showing respect for the US military he just sees them as kind of a political prop so if you really wanted to end in wars you would be already out of Afghanistan you would not be risking another war with Iran on you'd be changing the legal authorities under which our troops are fighting in these places and you'd have really aggressive diplomacy to try to manage these inflicts and you wouldn't necessarily remove those thousand or fifteen hundred special forces from Syria you'd have diplomats actively working to resolve differences with the Turks and to try to figure out and political conclusion to this during war time and can you imagine being a US diplomat who has to go into meetings on Syria Iraq now would you say no I would say send Rudy Giuliani the Syrian yeah sort this shit up to your point about you know the US troops who have been involved in these fights. 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.
