"Of that context, I actually thought it was a decent performance performance by the United States, but clearly I think England is the best cut is the best team in the world right now. And obviously, I'm joking with you a little bit. He and Julie. So we'll see because obviously all eyes are on the World Cup coming up next year. But what was your thoughts on the offside goal for the U.S.? I thought it was a bad call. Of course. I think a play that is that beautiful should never be called back. I know it's the highs and lows you get with VAR, but the camera angle was terrible. It looked like it was like, she was in an onside position. So I think it's a bad call, but I don't get to make that call, sadly. Now, Julie, you did mention, obviously, how the U.S. women played tonight because they've been playing against the backdrop of the devastating Yates report, as you mentioned, which was a yearlong investigation, which uncovered widespread emotional abuse and sexual misconduct in the NWSL we saw both teams coming together before the game with a protect the players banner. What do you want to see, come out of this, Julie? I think the key in all of this is we've seen reports, we've seen them in other sports. We've seen that this is a problem that goes beyond women's soccer. And it's time for action. I think that's what the players have been asking for for so long. And that was the astounding thing that came out of that report is just layer after layer of people who could have stopped it of adults of lawyers of coaches, executives, owners, and they never stopped it. And so I think the thing that everyone hopes comes out of this with this incredible 319 page report is that there's accountability that there's transparency that there are consequences when you sweep it under the rug and a coach goes on as Paul Riley did and Rory dames did to continue coaching or goes to another club because it's never red flagged. It's never actually put out in the public. And so Sally Yates actually in a report puts together a lot of really good recommendations and one of them is the fact that because there's so many entities involved and no clear guidelines or delineation of powers that everyone kept pointing to the other person. Oh, safe sport was taken care of this. Oh, I thought U.S. soccer was taken care of this. Oh, I thought NWSL was taken care of this and how that needs to be cleaned up entirely. So with all this pain, I hope they're actually is a purpose that comes out of this. And I hope we still have another joint investigation going right now with NWSL in the NWSL Players Association, but in conjunction with that, I hope we can build this sport and be an example, not just for women's soccer players because we know this is a problem that goes much deeper than that and goes into our youth programs, which Sally Yates talks about as well that can actually clean up this really screwed up system. Yeah, we really do hope to see that Julie. It's always great to hear from you. And if you would like to know more about the findings from the 8s reporting,

"I'm a little less confident in RSL. RSL needs to win as you say, but they don't win her. They don't win. They just don't win games.

It's a thrilling, epic adventure. Oh, a sunset would be right up David Moyes's alley. Santorum, streaming exclusively on Apple TV plus October 14th. It's your quick word before we pod while we were producing this show, seismic news, the law firm king and spalding released a 300 page report. Led by former acting attorney general Sally Yates and commissioned by U.S. soccer based on the revelations of abuse that rocked the NWSL when revealed last year. And a report not go away. It's an emotionally devastating read detailing among many counts of abuse, sexual misconduct, including some that have not been previously made public and the failures of those in positions of power to act on those allegations when brought to them across every level youth, professional club and country. Allowing and enabling this dangerous environment to persist at the expense of players that they were tasked with protecting. And I can't begin to imagine what it must have felt like for the players to read through this report. Looking to their clubs, their national team and understanding that these in charge choose to essentially protect predatory men over them to enable them for the national team who are together right now in Europe getting ready to represent U.S. soccer in just a few short days. Knowing that that very organization during the tenure of sunil galati left them unsafe with no recourse to protect, not just themselves, but each other. For the sake really of its own public image and football is a game. Which brings such joy. That's why we love it, but the sickening all pervasive behaviors and we're not just allowed, but enabled here, they really are, they are, they're a human horror, and it is clear that enormous enormous changes must occur accountability can not be escaped in the words of mana shim, Sinéad farrelly and are in Simon. They said no one involved has taken any responsibility for the clear role they played in harming players. It's time for action. Accountability and change. We will no doubt have more or less in podcasts to come. I'll just say for now to better days ahead. His support carriage you're listening to the men in blazers media network. Suboptimal radio. It's rod. Back with another episode of the women's game, presented by paramount plus and my co hosted a genuinely wonderful human being for the Chicago red stars and the U.S. women's national team. It's Tina Davidson. Thanks for having me, rod. Turn up. It's wonderful to be back with you as I said at the top of this podcast. We are talking during a developing story. A truly bombshell devastating story, the release of a 300 page report led by former acting attorney general Sally Yates, report that was commissioned by U.S. soccer after the revelations of abuse that rocked the NWSL last year and Tina before we dive into the football. Your reaction. To see the courage of everybody who was interviewed and spoke up throughout either this past year of the investigation or previously was just really, while it was sad to read, it was also very special because you realize how many people want. What's right for us in this league. And reading the investigation really just kind of hit home for me that, you know, as much as it is painful right now, we are moving in the right direction for current players and for future players. And it's a bit of a, it's a bit of, I would say, cautious optimism about where we're headed from now. And so, you know, it does suck in the moment and nobody wants to ever experience what players have had to experience, but we're moving forward from here. And I think that's something that brings me a little bit of optimism. Oh God speed and God willing me those words be true. Still sifting through the fallout from this truly awful moment and by the time this podcast is released a lot will have happened. But now, to the football and the final weekend of the NWSL regular season, there is a lot to unpack. Final NWSL playoff spot set, shield was one, buys locked in. And first of all, congratulations to your glorious red stars. You made the playoffs, Sunday Night. As every football fan of regular listener to this podcast now though, you have been out for the season with an ACL injury, but I know you were there for the game. Can you describe what was the scene like? It was a playoff game and for all intents and purposes it was for us because it was winner go home. There wasn't any time there wasn't any losing that would get us in. So it was just the first round of the playoffs for us, essentially. But I really do feel like this season has been a kind of against all odd season for the red stars. We have a number of players out with injury with pregnancy and a lot of our younger players rookies even have had to step up and play significant minutes for us. And they've pulled through in big ways. Our entire back line is different than it was last year. We have Tatum a lazo, Amanda kowalskis, Zoe Morse, even Aaron Gilman, who's a weathered veteran for our team, had to play in the center of a three back, which she's never done. So we have a lot of different players of playing different positions. And that's just in the back line. I mean, you could go through the whole lineup and see where we've had to have players step up and

"The latest on the women's soccer abuse scandal, Jeff plush is currently CEO of USA curling, but he used to lead the national women's soccer league, and USA curling is saying this evening that plush acted in accordance with prioritizing the safety of athletes during his tenure at the soccer league, where an investigation uncovered years of systemic emotional abuse and sexual misconduct. The curling board met this week after a report on the independent investigation into the abuses in women's soccer. The soccer investigation found that plush who was commissioner of the league from 2014 to 2017 was aware of allegations of sexual harassment and coercion against coach Paul Riley, but did not do anything to prevent Riley from continuing to coach in the league. USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan tells WTO the abuse begins when soccer players are very young. You're a kid and you're good and you want to keep playing and you want to please the coach and the coach is taking advantage. And again, this isn't these aren't my words. These are the words of Sally Yates in this independent report, which everyone should read. If you've got a kid that you love or know and use sports any sport, read this. But yeah, that it just is in the DNA of the sport to keep abusing and yelling emotionally and then it becomes physical abuse including, of course, sexual abuse. And again, what a cesspool for American sports. Former acting U.S. attorney general Sally Yates, who led the soccer investigation, said plush did not respond to requests for an interview. From libraries to recreation centers, a unique public education campaign about domestic violence will feature stories of survivors Kate Ryan reports. The campaign is called walking their shoes and domestic violence survivor, Cheryl Kravitz, shared her story. First, pretend you're wearing a pair of flat shoes. There are flat because you need to be able to run quickly. Why did she have to get away? Because her husband's abuse became worse. His pushes escalated to slaps and then punches. He was always careful not to hit my face. In 2021, 58 marylanders died as a result of domestic violence, 5 in Montgomery county, in Rockville, Kate Ryan, WTO news. Since the Supreme Court ruling in June, taking away the constitutional right to an abortion, leaders in Maryland have been looking for ways to expand access to people, both here in the state and outside. Now that push is getting some help from the feds, HHS has announced reproductive health research grants worth more than $6 million across the country, more than half going to Maryland organizations and the university of Maryland Baltimore. Three quarters of a $1 million in the form of a grant goes to the Baltimore city health department. And then a telehealth company called wisp has launched services in Maryland.

"A highly anticipated report finally dropped yesterday from no less than the former acting attorney general of the United States. Sally Yates detailed the failures and the toxicity of the national women's soccer league. After a yearlong investigation. A culture of abuse, silence, and fear of retaliation, perpetuated the misconduct. In this environment, many players and team staff members have believed that reporting this conduct would be futile and it would actually be detrimental to their careers. Normalization of this conduct allowed teams the league and the federation to ignore their respective responsibilities of addressing abuse of conduct. That conduct and the NWSL's refusal to address it happened to be the focus of both the episode you are about to hear and a new E 60 film, truth be told, the fight for women's professional soccer, that's been in the works for months now. And so we should note that today's show contains depictions of sexual coercion and abuse. Jennifer Carson Strauss, we're here to discuss a specific year inside the national women's soccer league. That is really just unlike anything else that's happened in a professional sports league that I can recall. And the film you directed about it for E 60 was Lisa salters reporting, it begins at one very specific moment. So what was it and when was it? Yeah, October 6th, 2021, almost a year ago. All games across the country in the national women's soccer league stopped play in the 6th minute, which had never been done before. You know, I think a lot of people at that time were wondering what was going on. It was a moment that grabbed national headlines, not just in sports, but across the nation. As that 6 minute approach is in every woman on the field knows what's gonna happen in that 6th minute. The referee blows the whistle. Do you have a whistle on the field? We wondered what we might see tonight and players from both teams, including from the benches. Enter to the center circle and all join arms. You can see players from both teams Armin arm links. They're all moving to the center circle together right now. Not just with their own teammates, but with the other team, who they're playing against. To have this moment of solidarity. Every player from both teams in the middle of the field, I think you can see you can feel the weight of this statement, this moment for the players. When you ask the players involved in that coordinated moment. What did they remember thinking about? What were they hoping to do as they remembered it? They were nervous. And there was a lot of emotions, whether you had been directly affected or not by any sort of abuse, verbal, emotional, sexual, you were feeling the pain of what was happening in this league. Women felt fed up. And just disgusted and ready to put their foot down. These women were standing up for long overdue change. The fallout from the abuse scandal rocking the national women's soccer league. We see over and over again what's referred to as a culture of silence. This now makes three coaches total, the national women's soccer league has fired in its ranks for misconduct. They want to have trust in management. They want to have trust in coaches and they haven't had that. There were systemic abuse issues happening in the league and it wasn't just that year. It had been going on for a long time. And in the NWSL, we had reported and found out that there was this culture of silence that had existed. And this was a moment where these women decided we're

"Com today and schedule your free in home estimate. It's 9 ten. Abuse in the national women's soccer league was widespread, an independent investigation found emotional abuse and sexual misconduct impacted multiple teams, coaches and players, including the coach of the Washington spirit, the investigation by former acting attorney general Sally Yates, was launched after two players accused former coach Paul Riley of the North Carolina courage of harassment and sexual coercion dating back ten years. USA Today sports colonist Christine Brennan, who is also a contributor to ABC News, CNN and NPR joined us earlier to talk about the investigation. These leaders continually, whether it's owners, coaches, leadership of the national governing body U.S. soccer, whatever the case, they consistently ignored women, ignored horrible, absolutely horrifying stories of a coach one coach calling a player into a review game film is showing her pornography instead. Another was notorious at the highest levels of women soccer for berating his players. And then asking about their sex lives. These are coaches. These are coaches of a pro league, another would call in a player and examine the game film and then started to physically abuse her. These things were going on in the name of having women who were once the girl next door playing soccer in their opportunity to have their professional sports experience. So it's truly horrifying. To your point, are there many of these leaders still in power now? Thankfully, the leadership of NWSL has changed. Thankfully, the leadership of U.S. soccer has changed. In the case of U.S. soccer is being run the president is a woman who actually alleged abuse herself. Cindy parlow cone and was a star of the 99 Women's World Cup team. So she knows so that's good news, I guess. But I wonder how it stops. The power structure is this report talks about. This starts with you soccer. And a verbal abuse of little kids playing soccer. And it just keeps going and going. And then, of course, deals into the reprehensible sexual abuse and sexual assault. And how does it stop? Because the power structure of soccer is such that for that girl who hopes to make an Olympic team, how does she speak out? And parents, I often feel powerless. And again, the sport is just moving the dirty laundry around. A guy gets fired, a coach gets fired. He's just moved to another team. So the database system has to be used so that people can find out what someone's done, and they have to put neon lights on it. This guy abuse someone so that he's never hired again. Were there more specific recommendations made in this report to try to fix this? Certainly they're going to have an ambush person that is available for independent reporting, which is good. It's necessary. Someone could call a hotline or email or text and let them know about abuse, whether it be a youth program or a pro league, as we're talking about here. And also that database, safe sport, the U.S. center for safe sport, has a database. I don't know why U.S. soccer was not using that. That can pertain to the pro league as well. And now at the very least, that database will be available. Again, that should be just a headline on any website. Here's our database of the people who have sexually abused young women. Why that was hidden and not use that very easy tool in the age of the Internet. Why that wasn't being used before this is beyond me.

Joining us live on Skype USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan, who is also a contributor to ABC News, CNN, and NPR. And Christine, just to start off, what is your reaction to this investigation? Michelle, to make trade good to be with you, but what a horrible, horrible story, what we have learned is what The Washington Post and the athletic reported a year ago and thank goodness for the journalists and the willingness of the players to come forward and tell journalists things that one would have hoped that leaders of the women's soccer league and U.S. soccer would have been receptive to, but instead these leaders continually, whether it's owners, coaches, leadership of the national governing body, U.S. soccer, whatever the case, they consistently ignored women, ignored horrible, absolutely horrifying stories of a coach one coach calling a player into a review game film is showing her pornography instead.

I'm glad the news is out now. I'm glad the investigation happened. But one wonders why in the world so many leaders let this go on didn't listen to the women and let it go on for so long. To your point, are there many of these leaders still in power now? Thankfully, the leadership of the NWSL has changed. Thankfully, the leadership of U.S. soccer Dmitri has changed.

I'm sorry to only leave you a few seconds to answer this you touched upon it briefly. The youth leagues, that this kind of pattern shall we say begins when the children are very young and that is key to stopping all of this. Oh, without a doubt. Because you're a kid and you're good and you want to keep playing and you want to please the coach and the coach is taking advantage. And again, Dmitri, these aren't my words.

"I mean, I am, but are you guys starting to get completely fed up with Garland than his, I don't know, his like lazy job he's doing or get. I definitely have like, here's the thing. I was a Sally Yates fan. I know that she's trending right now because of that very thing in the beginning. I think everything that would have made Merrick Garland a good Supreme Court Justice is exactly what's frustrating, everybody about him is AG. And I'll just explain how. Yeah, this kind of like tap the brakes, stick to settled law. Don't get out over your skis. You know, way everything at methodically and slowly and don't make any quick moves. And that's the way the Supreme Court kind of has always been. It's been anchored by the constitution and that was the idea. It's why he would have been good on the Supreme Court as AG, though, that is more an action role in terms of justice because the enormity of the Justice Department in the United States and all of its subsequent arms. The FBI, the ATF, the U.S. Marshals and the like, they have so many resources in so many people and so much to deal with that you know, that person is going to direct the focus of that entity, you know, very specifically, very actively. They are going to make decisions. They've got to make decisions. They're going to have they're going to have a desk with 5 zero fuck cases on your desk. Every day and you got to be the person who can go who can prioritize and go, yes, this is crucial. And Garland, like I said, the reason he'd have been a good Supreme Court Justice is the reason he's not particularly good in the DoJ. That said, the tap your brakes, mentality and that, you know, I know that people feel a lot of frustration. The very fact that he's waited as long as he had in slow walk so much of this shit, EG Carol stuff aside, which we salute her in every possible way. Waiting for Trump to kind of dig his own grave with his supporters as that's and that's what's played out. That's what's happening right now. Might whether it's a genuine strategy or an accident has got some value to it. What do you think, rob? Let's say, you know, what shook my faith a little bit and Garland and I've always been a Garland supporter and sort of I guess you could say a Garland apologist. You know, I've never been one to join the rabble of arrest everybody right now. But the school board stuff bothered me. His testimony, you know, you know, we had all the school board incidents and if you've seen all the viral videos of the school board stuff, it all came from me. I mean, 90% of it was my stuff. Because we were watching school board three of us every single night recording them all over the country. And you know, in response to that, the DoJ put out the memo about, you know, hey, we're going to we're tired of these threats and all of this against school board members..

So he told reader's digest, it always struck me as a bit strange, like here can I write your name down on the back of this receipt, please? You know, why? He said, we both know who I am. And McCartney says he's done with selfies with fans, too, because he says what you usually have is a photo with a poor backdrop and me looking a bit miserable. So I had how true is that? The 76 year old legend says instead of asking him for an autograph or a selfie, let's chat. Let's exchange stories. So his fellow Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr actually stopped signing autographs 13 years ago. Yeah, it was about to say that I've Ringo did that long ago. Exactly. Paul's just catching up, but he's done. There you go. Yeah, I mean, think about it though. Most of the stuff you get signed, it's probably in a drawer somewhere that you never look what is doing. And that is terribly awkward. I mean, I mean, you know, you're just like, ugh. No, I have no. Now I have to. I mean, I'm sure it's happened to you. Have you had listeners asking for your autograph? Yeah, I know I'm embarrassing you. Nobody have a spot that way. I have a bewildered look on my face. What are you going to do with this, but in fact, did I ever tell you I got to tell you this story? Because this is nothing short of hilarious. This was years ago, okay? I was doing a broadcast. I think I might have been one of our Black Friday broadcasts at the mall. And this kid, I don't know, you could just tell, you just kind of like walking back and forth and you could tell something was on his mind. He wanted to do. I know the look. Yeah, so you just so he finally got the courage comes over and you didn't even look up at me just says, hey, yeah. If you were to sign anything, would it you think would be worth any money? Nice. No, it did. I didn't remember this. I was there. Oh, were you there? Okay, I didn't know who was there, but I said, and I said, well, probably not. And he goes. Okay, see ya. Totally was there. That was just checking. Okay. All right, see you. I don't want it. I just want to make some money. Oh my gosh, that's perfect. Two funny. I do remember that day. I think that was my first year here. Wow, the soul that you were there when that happened. I thought that happened longer, even farther than maybe I just remember the story. Maybe it happened twice. I'm sure it did. All right. Let's do some birthdays. Okay. All right, bye. Okay, bye. Seth MacFarlane, celebrating a birthday today. I could have lied and you know, this would be worth thousands.

Fujiyama is right there and Beech Grove right there behind the steak and shake. Is that a hibachi group? It's like a Japanese steakhouse. You get a few sake, bombs. I'm sure Before she became the White House press secretary. A k a. Your Circle back girl she go back to that was a paid contributor for CNN. And let's go back to August of 2020. This is when You have Senator Lindsey Graham and other folks having a Senate hearing to talk about some things that went on under the Obama administration, Sally Yates was taking the stand. So sadly, Yates is there and Lindsey Graham is grilling Sally Yates and he's asking tough questions. This is a tweet from Jen Psaki, August 5th 2020. Quote on Lee in 2020 Does hashtag Lady G. Which, for those who don't know is a derogatory slang term that people used to talk about Lindsey Graham, basically saying that he's feminine or that he might be gay on Lian 2020 Does hashtag Lady G get to push a bunch of debunked conspiracy theories while questioning savvy gates in American hero? I had not. I did not. I have not heard that lady G thing. Yes, so so because his name's Lindsay and some people think he's a little feminine. That's okay. To put out there on Twitter if your leftist and going after Republican but you will get canceled in a heartbeat. If you dead name somebody with dead naming is like if somebody switches from Amanda Woman has trained surgery, or whatever. And you cholera. He instead of a she You'll get your good blocked. So if I say Bruce Jenner? Yeah, I get a problem. If you call him Bruce, General General, you could get blocked and that's shaming or harassing. But, lady jeez, fine Right now. This isn't something from 15 years ago. This isn't something from 10. Remember, We had that one story of the Villanova basketball player who was quoting rap lyrics from Jay Z when he was in eighth grade. Right. And you know it had the n word and and he was a white guy, and you know, everybody was out to get him. This was August 5th 2020 and your current White House press secretary hashtag Lady G. Now. If you're asking me if this is ridiculous, Yes, I think it all is ridiculous when you dig up old tweets, But these are the rules and we did not make the rules. So I mean, I guess if it's okay that Jimmy Kimmel wears black face, I think Jimmy Fallon had a blackface skit at one point. Why do all these people get a pass? But heaven forbid, if you're somebody that's a conservative The cancel culture mob was going to come out to get you. Well, look at what happened in Saturday night Live over the weekend. There's a big controversy that they made a transphobic joke, but nobody really cares. Nobody's gonna call him out on it. You know, they're in. Plus, they're playing with kid gloves. Now when they're the way they treat Biden supposedly did on Trump. Are you kidding me? Do you know how much time they spent making fun of Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live? This past weekend. Zero. This was like their first episode in a long time. They mentioned Joe Biden's name when they were doing weekend update and monologues and stuff. But there wasn't a Biden joke at all. There wasn't any making fun of Joe Biden zero. So get ready for the next. Well, I don't want to say four years because I don't think Joe Biden is going to make it four years. 2.5 whatever he's going toe last before they end up shoving him and four to some moving bus and getting comma Harrison there, But it's gonna be kid gloves, man. Different rules, depending on which side you voted on. Again. Imagine if Sean Spicer had tweeted out something really derogatory or sexist towards somebody. Don't you think that would be a big story? Don't you think that would be like or seriously there's or anybody in the Trump Administration? Of course. Yeah. Um, speaking of the new administration there, go to network CNN. Remember when they got all bent out of shape? If you called it the China virus, remember, they had Jim Acosta. Oh, man talking to the president every day talking to the press secretary every day, and he would stand up there and do his monologue. Then he would run back to Chris Cuomo or whoever it was and talked about how Xena phobic calling the China virus words. The president referred to the Corona virus as a quote foreign virus that that I think was interesting because as I was talking to sources earlier this evening, one of the points that the president wanted to make tonight wanted to get across to Americans is that this virus did not start here. But that they're dealing with it now why the president would go AST far as to describe it as a foreign virus. That is something we'll also be asking questions about. I think it's going to spec. It's going to come across to a lot of Americans as stacking of xenophobia on by the wages a side note. I mean, before, like, something switched on a dime to me something turn on a dime with the media back when this whole because you could there's montages, endless montages people on CNN, calling it the Chinese virus with Wuhan virus. And then, as soon as Donald Trump started using that, then that's when they all started hopping on that bandwagon. He's racist, xenophobic, blah, blah, blah. And one of the biggest finger waggers at CNN was Alison Camerata. She's a reporter, and she would refuse to call it the China virus. She going lectures of why it was inappropriate. Well, today, she got a finger Wag did her because she called it the South African variant even though the violence and this particular variant was first described in South Africa. It actually might not have even emanated from South Africa. So it's inappropriate to call it the South African variant. It's better just to call it by its name five or one y V two, and we now know that's in about 31 countries. No, you're right. Absolutely. I mean, you're right. And I don't mean to Despair of South Africa. It's just a handy shorthand. Oh, so it's a handy shorthand when you do it. It's just a real quick way to talk about the virus. When you do it. She got flustered there, didn't she e. How tone Deaf was Nancy Pelosi when she went to quote China town in this first emerged, walked around and come to Chinatown..
"sally yates" Discussed on The Stuttering John Podcast
"Pic. And here's why first of all America Carlin was a prosecutor in my office. He was an assistant us attorney in the DC khong. Attorney's office, I think from 89 to 92 handled some tough cases. He was part of the trial team in the mayor Marion Barry drug trial so he knows how to take off difficult politically sensitive cases on he was also the supervisor. He was involved in the Unabomber investigation. He was involved in the Oklahoma City bombing prosecution as a home supervisor. You know, he I do not believe he will shy away from difficult politically charged cases. He's also a very thoughtful circumspect Fair wage judge, universally highly-regarded. I know some people are upset that he often takes the police line when he's deciding cases as an appellate court judge, you know and and Thursday that is something that we're going to have to address on the Civil Rights front moving forward in with respect to the new team being brought on at the Department of Justice, but I I think Merrick Garland dead Is a good pic he is like a quiet thoughtful circumspect guy. I'm hoping he's a bit of a quiet storm. And I'm hoping he will appreciate the need to hold all of these criminal politicians accountable for what they have done to us to this country to the immigrants who came here during the past four years. I am I'm optimistic with the pic. So the only thing that I am concerned about is that people are going to say like if Merrick garland does as we both think he should go after Trump and and and all the you know, all the correct page will involved in this corruption is you're going to go well people going to think that it's because I didn't get to be Supreme Court Justice. Are they going to you know, is he going to like try and some come back to that kind of you know, that kind of rhetoric? You know what I mean? Like, oh like I'm sure you could see like a Mitch McConnell going. He's just doing this cuz he he's mad dog. Didn't get you know, his Supreme Court Justice hearing that criticism will come but you know what he's been a prosecutor. He was a judge. He's been criticized plenty. I can tell you as a career prosecutor every consequential prosecutorial decision. I made I got criticized either by the defendant and his criminal Associates or by the victim and the community because I may be declined to bring a charge because the evidence wasn't there and understanding that the criticism is going to come regardless of what decision you make is very liberating because then you just get to make the right decision based on the evidence and the facts and the rules and the Constitution and you don't worry because you're going to get criticized one way or another. I don't think that criticism that will have any legs that because he didn't get his spot on the Supreme Court and because Mitch McConnell unconstitutionally kept him from getting the confirmation number During the Constitution says the Senate is to provide which still blows my mind that we let McConnell get away with that. I do not think people will be like well, then that's why he's going to prosecute Donald Trump for ten counts of felony obstruction of justice that Bob Mueller documented meticulously in the Trump Russia report. I don't think that criticism has any links. I'm happy to hear that. So do you believe then that Merit Garland is going to go after and do what's right. Is he going to go after them and do all the things that were outlined in in the Mueller report? Do you believe that he is going to uphold Justice? I don't see how a law-abiding attorney general can decline to hold this runaway criminal president accountable for his many crimes. So with that being my guide I have to believe Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice off. Hold Trump and the other criminal politicians accountable. I am hopeful that at a minimum the southern district of New York has an indictment ready to drop on Donald Trump's off Ed for what he did at the beginning of all this the beginning being the presidential campaign. He broke all kinds of campaign Finance laws in a conspiracy with Michael Cohen to hide deeply damaging information from the American voters, which is to gain unfair advantage in a presidential election that is wrong three times over and it's criminal two times over and if you don't hold a criminal candidate for president accountable for crimes, he committed to steal the presidency than what the hell is the point of having a rule of law. This is why Glenn I wanted you to be attorney general I I mean because wage No, you would hold them, you know to all of this and I worry again. I worried it's not only me Glen. I know a lot of people my audience I think most Democrats off, you know, and progressives are worried that The Democrats going to take the high road. Well, let's just put the past behind us and look forward and try and you know get some get us all together and have our office and John you don't you don't tell Crime Victims and we the people are victims of Donald Trump's crimes on the coronavirus front and otherwise, you don't tell a crime victim go hold hands with your your attacker your perpetrator. The one who victimized you hold hands. We're not going to hold that person accountable and that's how you're going to heal. That's Unity. That's the opposite of healing. It's the exact opposite of justice and gosh. I hope Merrick Garland doesn't do that to the American people. Would he be your first choice? He would have been up there, you know, because both preet and Sally Yates, I think had they're both great candidates, but they had conflict concerns because Donald Trump fired them. So I'm not concerned about the well Mitch McConnell didn't give Merrick Garland his confirmation hearing complaints. I'm less concerned about that. I'd be more concerned about people saying wait a minute women Donald Trump fired you Sally Yates and prepare our and ran you out on a rail in disgrace. Not really but this is the way the argument would go and therefore you cannot legitimately supervise an investigation into the man who fired you and ran you out of Washington. Now, the concern is the Department of Justice ethics office might actually offer an opinion that Sally Yates because she was fired, you know, she was shown the door by Donald Trump..

So, according to CNN and politico, at least Joe Biden has selected Judge Merrick Garland to serve as his attorney General Merrick Garland, of course, was selected in 2016 by President Obama to serve on the Supreme Court. But that nomination never really went through the Republican Senate at the time. And so now it looks like he will be the pick and this is over. I think it was senators Doug Jones and Sally Yates, who he was also looking at for a G, but apparently the nods going to Merrick Garland. And Barry Garland, of course, was TheStreet Court nominee of President Obama's 11 months before the election, which Mitch McConnell would not even allow hearings to take place, which was a very different animal with Neil Gorsuch when it was four months before the election.

Working families are suffering Maury economic desperation. In any time since the Great Depression. We should be responded to that need and let me say this. I think that President elect Biden understands that reality and if we can get through This Trump administration the next few weeks without doing terrible harm to the American people. I suspect one of the first items on the Biden agenda will be following up on what we're doing here and providing that kind of assistance. Seems like a safe bet. Let me ask you about the emerging Biden Cabinet. Is it progressive enough? Well, what I have said many, many times is the progressive movement itself. Probably is 35 or 40% of the Democratic Coalition on and I believe that the progressive movement deserves seats in the cabinet. That has not yet happened. So you know, I would like to see strong progressives in the administration. We're going to stand up for the working families of this country who believe that health care is a human right? Believe we've got to make sure the public colleges and universities tuition free and then we have to be aggressive on issues like climate change our racial justice, immigration reform.

Trump links yanking John Brennan's security clearance to Russia probe
"The president tonight quoting one of his supporters who. Appeared on Fox News. John Brennan is a stain on the country. We deserve better than this from the briefing room. Earlier today, here is how the White House press secretary laid out the reasons for stripping Brennan's clearance while threatening to take similar action against other Trump critics. Any benefits that senior officials might glean from consultations with Mr. Brennan are now outweighed by the risks posed by his erotic, conduct and behavior. Mr. Brennan has recently leveraged his status as a former high ranking official with access to highly sensitive information to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations whiled outbursts on the internet and television about this administration. As part of this review, I'm valuating action with respect to the following individuals. James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice. Andrew McCabe Peter Struck Lisa page and Bruce or not only are they all Trump crew. Some of those under evaluation are closely tied as you know to the Russia investigation our own Andrea Mitchell reports. The president's own director of national intelligence. Dan Coats was not aware in advance of today's announcements announcement nor were other senior intelligence officials. The White House was asked for evidence that John Brennan had actually somehow abused his clearance, but declined to provide any. Have any reason to believe or evidence to suggest Brennan has misused classified information or monetize access to as was alleged earlier by this ministry. Again, I'm laid out the reasons for the decision that was made on this specific instance. We'll continue to review the other actions manager, absence of you not saying those things you didn't find it? No, I would make any assumptions. I'm telling you what the decision was based off on. In this case today statement, pulling Brennan security clearance was dated July twenty six. That was a big indicator that it was standing by on the skids ready for weeks and was pulled out and announced just today. John Brennan is famously one of the stone cold faces in that photo taken in the White House situation room. The night, Osama bin Laden was killed. Finding bin Laden was a huge part of his job and his life's work after nine, eleven Phil Rucker of the Washington Post. Put this out tonight. It shows Brennan's major postings in his decades of. Service to this country, much of clandestine CIA station, chief Saudi Arabia CI station chief director of terrorist threat integration center director of national counterterrorism center, White House, homeland security adviser. CEA director briefed three presidents earlier Brennan himself spoke by phone with our colleague, Nicole Wallace. I do believe that Mr. Trump decided to take this action. She's done with others to try to intimidate him suppress any criticism of him or his administration. And we've, oh ki my security clearances is is way of trying to get back at me and this is not going to turn me at all. I'm going to continue to speak out. I think he fears individuals who could damage him damage his his standing on the American people look at the way he's been referring to Muller Muller who is a national treasure. And I common within the law enforcement and Justice communities who's doing his level best to investigate Russian interference in the election and the denigration of Bob Muller as well as his team of investigators is is reprehensible. I think Mr. Trump is getting more and more concerns were more desperate. I would say more and more frightened as there is a closer and closer magnification of some of the things that those around him have been involved in just a short time ago tonight to other Intel chiefs, who's clearances are under review also spoke out. The White House just messaged the entire American intelligence community. If you stand up and say, things that upset the president or with which he disagrees, he will punish you. And that is a horrible message to be sending to folks who are there to tell you objective truth, the bigger issue here, Chris to me is what this implies the implications of this for the first amendment. And the other question I have is, where does this end? Both of those two gentlemen have fifty plus years
