Amber Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI way knew that he was having these phone calls it was supposed to be having he got fired after only being in the administration for the 24 days. Something like that. So which is, uh, to Scaramucci is so Flynn is is gone. And then the Miller investigation kicks up and they're like, Oh, well, we got Flynn. I mean, he was lying to us. So then they used him for Basically the kind of leveraged him in order to to bring out more information. And then all of a sudden, the Justice Department said. You know what? Mueller? Let's limit the scope of your of your investigation. You can't follow the breadcrumbs to anything else that might happen, so it just turned into a real You know, just a real mess. You know, Flynn was supposed to be Sentence. The Justice Department said to the judge. We want to drop the charges dropped the charges. He just pled guilty. Yeah, but we don't want to charge him. And the judge said, No, That's not how this works. So how any of this works? And so that was that was being hung up in court, and Trump just came outside. Dad. He's off the hook. I worry about the trump phenomenon. Not because of Michael Flynn mean Michael Flynn will score some gig with some, You know, Trump pissed.

We had a gentleman who called us earlier in the show, and he was He was sort of the same mind set is I am And that is It's not Trump It's It's the playbook that Trump is writing, or rather resurrected from past leaders, not American leaders. Here. You've got a charismatic Well known figure. And I mean, he figured if we blew up the world of politics in United States, but he tapped into what is a psyche that we've seen play out historically. That ends up hitting neighbors against neighbors and races against races and it divides the country into the haves and the have nots even further, and he knew this. And he used it to his advantage, and he got rid of anyone that was willing to challenge his power like John Kelly. Like Rex Tillerson, who somehow ended up looking like a good guy by the time that he was done James Mattis, Dan Coats Sally Yates, who I just mentioned selling, it's got fired because she wasn't willing to Theo defend them.

"sally yates" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"She refused to enforce the law. And she also testified last week that she was lied to by the FBI and would not have said she's one of the people who signed a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and she admitted that she was like two she would not have signed that buys a warrant. If she knew now then what she knows now, I don't know, necessarily believe that she didn't know it then that she wasn't involved in all of this, But at least that was her story, and she's sticking to it. I was surprised that after that admission that she was that there was a lot of corruption in the Russia Gate investigation by the FBI by the intelligence. We are surprised that she was still Invited to speak, but she probably already recorded. Her testimony are recorded her Her speech. By then they budgeted out the time and they just thought it was easier to go that But listen to Sally Yates explain. Her career and why she she was fired. Cut five Go ahead, served as deputy attorney general in the Obama Bad administration and stayed on as acting attorney general for the Trump transition. Then 10 days in I was fired for refusing to defend President Trump's shameful and unlawful Muslim travel ban. Except it wasn't a Muslim travel ban shameful and unlawful North Korea lot of Muslims there They were a country involved in that van, not a lot of Muslims in North Korea. Venezuela also part of that travel ban. Again, not a hotbed of Of Muslim activity. It was a ban on Entry to the United States from countries that could not vet the people that did not cooperate with the United States to the point of the satisfaction of our state Department that we could make sure that we weren't getting, you know, monsters coming over here. That's what it was and the unlawful part. Sally Yates has billed as some sort of legal scholar why she was the acting attorney general. She was deputy attorney general under Barack Obama, therefore, She could. But Barack Obama, he was a constitutional law professor, which he wasn't by the way. He was a guest lecturer at a college, not the same as a constitutional law professor Doing one semester is a guest lecturer, not not the same. This'll legal scholar declared. The travel ban to be unconstitutional. Unfortunately for this genius legal scholar the Supreme Court of the United States disagreed. Thiss unconstitutional, unlawful, horrible thing that Sally Yates was referring to was declared constitutional by the Supreme Court. So She's either lying or ignorant or whatever, or like most leftists, if they don't like a Supreme Court decision, they just ignore it. If they don't like a law, they just ignore it. They don't like election results. They just ignore it. They just ignore. Whatever it is that is inconvenient to them. So I thought that was interesting that she would be chosen to speak and be given such a prominent role. I don't think most people No. Who the hell Sally Yates is. They don't remember Sally Yates. They should know who Sally Yates is. She was one of the people in the Oval Office meeting with Barack Obama and Joe Biden. When they discussed going after the Trump campaign with the With sending an FBI agent in to interview Michael Flynn. Little bit weird that she would be up there unless you realize, of course, she testified last week and again. I'm not saying there's a tie to this, but she testified last week that she wasn't that meeting, but she doesn't remember. Joe Biden, suggesting tactics right? Well, the I don't remember Joe saying that, but I was definitely there. So you give Joe Biden cover And then suddenly you this Nobody backbencher gets five minutes. At the Democratic National Convention. When AOC herself the unofficial queen of the Democratic Party is given 60 seconds given one minute she used 92nd. She actually spoke for 96 seconds. But it didn't come as a surprise to anybody since it was recorded and Submitted. I just love the the difference there. There's no reason for Sally Yates to be speaking up there. She's an Obama administration official. Of course, she's going to be against The president of the United States. She also was involved in trying to spy on the president of the United States. None of that was mentioned by the way in the praise for her speech there, where she lied to the American public about something being illegal. We got David for dough. So coming up afternoon.

"sally yates" Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"What a privilege, which explain you should explain what precisely that means what does that job entail? Well, it's essentially the chief operating officer of the department of Justice. The attorney general, is obviously, the top law enforcement officer for the entire country. But the deputy attorney general access the CO for a department of a hundred and thirteen thousand employees, which includes not only all of the US attorney's offices across the country, all of the components at main Justice. But also, the law enforcement components as you well know from your time, though, that FBI and as. The head of DA. But includes FBI DA in the Marshall service and the bureau of prisons. So it's, it's a pretty big operation job. Yeah. Did you come to it with any ideas of what you would like to do? And I ask that because it tends to be a reactive job, Noor so many issues every day that land on your desk, and that require your immediate attention that even if you come with things you'd like to do that, sometimes hard to do, I did come with some ideas, because I was the last two years of the Obama administration. So maybe a had in some ways the luxury of deadline, I knew that we only had two years there. And I'm talking about us here being the office of the deputy attorney general Odette to leave at the end of that two years. And thank all we had done was really handle the emergencies the crises, and they're plenty of those, but the handle those things that came across our desk. And so I had some ideas of things I wanted to do, but also talked with people in DOJ. Both the assistant jeez, as well as folks on my staff about what are some things that you think need to be done here. How do we want to impact the department? So there's some things that are different when we leave they were when we walked in the door having worked for you. I remember well, your interest with me. With you, and for you, but I remember, well, your interest in sentencing reform in prison, reform, and also something that I'd like an I'd love to talk about any or all of these things. But I recall your interest in implicit bias, all of us carry around unconscious biases. It doesn't mean that you're a racist. It means that our brains have ways of making shortcuts and we associate individuals with groups and sometimes they're avert biases here. I'm not to say that, that there aren't those things as well. But this unconscious bias seeps into how we make decisions. That's bad enough for regular people out there. But if you're in law enforcement, or you're a prosecutor and you have an unconscious bias that is impacting how you're making those decisions those decisions that can impact people's liberty. That's something we need to do something about. So what did you want to do wanted to train people, you know, we had learned. That there is training that law enforcement officers and prosecutors around the country on the state level had been involved in and that it can. At least I'm not gonna pretend that this fixes it, you can say check, you know, that's not a problem anymore, but it at least trains, people and alerts them to the biases that they're carrying with them and gets people, some tools to try to address it. And also, I think it's important that the department is acknowledging that this is an issue that it's an issue. We need to try to combat and we have a responsibility to do something about. I think you're right Sally being aware of it is better than not being aware of it, and whether or not it's sort of changes behavior makes people more sensitive to it. That's still valuable. Oh, absolutely. And, you know, again, this is not something that you're gonna fix with a little training course here. But at you not know that a lot of people came into this somewhat skeptically. But I think from the feedback that we got when people actually went through the. Raining, it opened their eyes to things that they didn't really realize that they were doing that was my sense to that people were somewhere between skeptical and oppressive up when they had the training, it opened up there is that's the goal. And look you were key among those who did some of this at the beginning. I think we needed to adjust along the way in terms of how to most effectively train law enforcement officers and prosecutors in ways that will be practical for them as well. And so I don't think you can just sort of take training and say, this is going to be it, you need to be willing to adapt to how it's going to make it more effective, and more useful. I'm glad you did that. Thank you. Thank you for that. And thank you for participating in it. You bet. So another thing near and dear to your heart was prison reform. Absolutely. This actually started back when I was she was attorney, and we had started a program, there were, we were going to connect service providers with people who are coming out of state prisons at that time. And to our most Challe. Hinging neighborhoods. And so we had a program that we started actually at the Lindsey street Baptist church. They are an English avenue in Atlanta, and we had different service providers of housing and jobs and drug treatment and others that were there. And we had a form for the folks that were coming out of prison to fill out of what services that they needed, what was so striking to me is when we're getting a lot of those forms back at the first meeting and a couldn't figure out why. So I went and sat down next to gentlemen on a church pew there and asked him why we haven't gotten there forms. And they of didn't really answer. Then one quietly leaned over to me and said, I can't read, and I realized that there were a lot of folks in that room that couldn't read they weren't going to raise their hands. You know, that's humiliating for them to have to tell us that they can't read so that really spawned my interest to want to find out. What are we doing to ensure that the people when they are in prison that we are giving them those basic tools that they need? To be able to be successful things like being able to read the drug treatment that they need the basic job training for jobs that will actually exist, when they get out of prison anger management, those things that are really absolutely essential for them to have just a fighting shot at being successful. When they get on the intro to move Sally, because we talked earlier, about stigma, whether it was mental health or addiction illiteracy is another type of stigma, my husband, who's a lawyer, actually, we both medications balding, but he missed the head of a school for children with learning disabilities, and who are deaf and hard of hearing, but they also have a teacher training institute for children who come from poverty, and particularly generational lack of access to education. And so I was very attuned. The literacy issues there as well and the kind of, impact that, that can have on people's lives for the rest of their lives. And so what to do ask the Federal Bureau of prisons to do, so we didn't have a lot of time. So we had some consultants come in and we look. At a whole variety of things. We looked at education. We looked at the job training that we were doing importantly, the halfway houses and the kind of services that were being provided there. And on the education side, we began a system there, a sensually building a school district within the Federal Bureau of prisons that would I assess each individual, when he or she is coming in to the federal prison system to find out where they are in that educational continuum is this somebody who could benefit from post-secondary, or is this someone we need to teach to read, or do they need to be able to get a high school diploma that would I assess them and then be able to tailor the educational things that were provided to them to what their needs were, and we had started a pilot project actually through tablets, essentially, rugged ipads that could be used in their cells. Because, you know, at the time really all that existed in the bureau prisons for the most part. Was a GED prep. Course it was a waiting list, thousands, and thousands of inmates long to be able to get into that GED print course if you were lucky enough for that. All you got was an hour, a day of education. What I found was is that in symptoms are good. And all, but we didn't have an issue with incentivizing individuals in prison to want to participate in. They, they were they were begging to get into these programs. We just didn't have the resources to provide the services. And so with the declining prison population as we were adjusting drug sentencing there we were able to essentially reprogram some of that money into the educational services because the truth is Sally that the overwhelming percentage of people who go to prison reenter society, like ninety five percent. We don't want them to go back. You can look at it from various different perspectives. But this is one of the smart. Just things that we can do from public safety standpoint. We know recidivism rights are now about sixty six percent. We know that those drop dramatically if an individual is able to engage a meaningful education programs, and even more than that, if I'm top of that they have meaningful job training programs. And so it's not just doing something nice for people who were imprisoned. It's the smartest thing we can do to make our communities more safe toward the end of the Obama administration. The attorney general Loretta Lynch, your direct boss resigned, President Trump sworn into office and his nominee for attorney general Jeff Sessions has not yet been confirmed by the Senate. And so for two hundred and forty hours for ten days. Sally Yates, you're the acting attorney general of the United States. Yeah. Well, there's a tradition at the department of Justice that the deputy attorney general stays on as the. Acting AG during a transition and unites important check in any agency for there to be continuity. But given the national security and the law enforcement responsibilities DJ, it's particularly important. And so our colder had done it when he served as Dag between the Clinton and Bush administration. So I was happy to do it during this time as well. When you spoke at Harvard Law School in two thousand seventeen out its class day exercises. You said the defining moments in our lives often don't come with advance warning during your ten days as acting attorney general President Trump issued an executive order one three seven six nine which restricted travel to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Can you talk about that a little bit? Yes. I mean this was entirely unexpected. There's this tradition that I just mentioned. But there's another tradition to, and that is that nothing happens during this time on that you're serving is the acting attorney general. And so I was actually leaving the white. House, the afternoon of the twenty seven after having been there talking with them about the situation with general Flynn and ambassador Kislyak and learned from principal deputy from a phone call. Because he read on the New York Times website that the president had signed this travel ban that we didn't know anything about there had been no inter agency process that you would normally have to try to figure out what it is the administration's trying to accomplish and how you could go about doing that. So what to do? Well, we spent the weekend actually trying to get our arms around what it was. They were trying to accomplish this was travel ban. One were on travel ban three now but travel ban one actually applied to people, for example, who had valid visas, and who were lawful permanent residents in our country. And so we had lawyers who had to be in court that next morning, Saturday morning to enforce the president's executive order, right? Because they were people who are literally in the air as the president signed this executive order that then were being turned away from the country when they landed here. So we spent the weekend, lots of discussions with the White House, trying to, again, sort of figure out who's in and who's out because it was not clear at all from the face of this executive order. What that was, and then on Monday morning. I learned that, that on Tuesday morning. The judge wanted the position of the department of Justice on the constitutionality and the lawfulness of this executive order amounts, your responsibility. Right. What was your view on its constitutionality? Well, I had been over the weekend and through that Monday morning, reading, all of the challenges going on and reading the cases, I mean, Chuck, you know, from your experience at DOJ normally for something by the time it gets to the deputy attorney general, even the enacting AJ, lots of people have reviewed it, and distilled it. There's no time for any of that. You know, we're just having to read the raw information. And so I wanted to hear from the people in the department both the career people and the Trump appointees about what those challenges were, and how we would defend this challenges. I wanted to hear their views as well. So call them all into the conference room, we have a big meeting, and we start going through the challenges in what our position would have to be on these assume to you that the -secutive order of the president's was motivated by religious animus against Muslims. And that's what became really clear to me as that to defend this hour's gonna have to send department of Justice lawyers into court to take the position that this executive order, had absolutely nothing to do with religion. And that's despite all the statements that the president of made not just on the campaign trail. But statements, he had made after that as well after he was. Elected. And that was in the face at the fact that this only applaud to Muslim-majority countries. But yet provided priority for Christians in this instance to, to send them in to advance a pretext and I don't think any lawyer should do that. And I sure don't think that department of Justice lawyer, should here's the fascinating thing to me. Traditionally if a senior officials put in that position they have a binary choice to enforce the law as the president has promulgated it or to resign. And I know you Wade, both of those options, but you came up with a third way a middle way. I did struggle..

"So the Russians could blackmail him based on the Logan act that he was conducting foreign policy without being off the Logan act has never been successfully prosecuted in the history of the United States. It's a joke. It's the felonious mo- Perea federal charges. Sally Yates made up a crime and walked into the White House to get them the fire Mike Flynn because he was basically an enemy of the Obama administration. I believe had significant information about the depths of the spying scandal because it happened to him. He was set up by Russians excuse me by foreign Intel trying to attach him to Russians Sally Yates makes up this legal theory about how. Mike Flynn could be subject to Russian blackmail. It's absurd about what talking about foreign policy and coming national security adviser. It's ridiculous. She made that up that was a legal theory, not backed by any precedent at all she did it because she's a political hack. But Secondly, Joe Sally Yates appears rather prominently in the whole spy gate, the Bockel with the Obama administration spied on the Trump team. Her name is one of the FIS awards. Sally Yates signed one of the warrants where they you know, the FIS awards. They the secret court to spy on the Trump team based on the bunk discredited false information, and they politically paid for dossier. Sally eight sign that ladies and gentlemen. She's freaking out Brennan's freaking out. Clapper's freaking out Komi and all of them because they know the walls are actually closing in on them as Bill bar and inspector general. My car would start to look at the weaponization to the police state under the Obama administration and what they did to target the Trump team. Don't take a word out of Sally Yates his mouth seriously. She is simply trying to one eighty it back to focusing on Donald Trump. So the spotlight comes off her. That is the only reason she was on meet the press this. We can do not believe. All right, folks. I was a stack show today. Thank you against really appreciate police.

"Listening to Sally Yates longtime Justice department official who's the acting attorney general at the start of the Trump administration. Sally Yates spoke with Jeffrey Toobin at the New Yorker festival. Now, as you mentioned the travel ban was revised once it was revised twice the courts had struck down each of the versions, including the third and final version until it went to the supreme court which upheld at five to four what's your view of the travel ban in its final form and of the supreme court's decision about it. You know, I haven't studied travel ban three the same way that I did the first one. You know, I still despite the other revisions of, you know, taking out the preference for Christians and throwing in a couple of non Muslim majority countries. Despite the fact that they made some changes, I am still troubled by the animus that I believe infected the first as well as the final travel ban. And we've had this paradoxical situation since Jeff Sessions has been attorney general where he has been in the policy areas, you talk about very much advancing the Trump agenda at the same time. The president has been just beating the hell out of him in public. What do you make of that? What what? What do you make of that? What's up with that? Thank you. You know? I mean, I think he clearly has been trying to humiliate him into resigning. I mean that that's been going on for so long now at like doesn't even make the news anymore. But when it became clear, I think that attorney general sessions was not going to resign. Now, he seems determined to undermine the legitimacy of the department and the FBI and anybody else who is involved with the Russia probe. I believe to de legitimize any findings from that probe. It's it certainly elevating himself and being willing to tear down critical democratic institutions for self protection. What about the role of rod Rosenstein, rod Rosenstein, definitely has raised the profile of the attorney general's. You thought you were famous rod Rosenstein is maybe the most famous in America. He he is because attorney general sessions is recused. He is the supervisor of the Mahler investigation. How do you think Rosenstein is handled that I think he's done a really good job of that? I think you've known Rosen. Yeah. New and back when we were US attorneys together in the Obama administration. And so I've known rod for a long time. And look, I know everybody for a while was so focused on making sure that we protect Robert Muller. And goodness knows. I think we need to protect Bob Muller. But it's equally as important to protect rod Rosenstein right now because he really has control over what ultimately happens in this investigation. I mean, in fact, the report that Mahler writes doesn't go to congress. It goes to the deputy. He goes to his supervisor who is the attorney general. So you could have a deputy attorney general who receives the report and says, thank you very much puts it in a drawer, and that's the end of the story. And that certainly seems to be the course that our president would think that that person should take. Well, it does seem like I mean, the president has all but written on a wall. He's gonna fight. The attorney general after the midterms, and you think he's gonna fire Rosenstein too, far be it from me to get an Donald Trump's head. He's walked them both up to the guillotine multiple times. Now only to then pullback. So it's hard to know if it's one or the other or he does it in a swoop bore neither and he just continues to torture them. It's kinda hard to now. It's whatever I think he thinks will be best for him. The president appoints the attorney general is he the president's lawyer is he the people's lawyer. What's what's what is the role, and what's the relationship? What should it be? Because it's it's not a simple fan now. And and I get that a lot of people might look and say look, the department of Justice is part of the executive branch just like the department of agriculture commerce or any of the other agencies, and you answer the president or the president's lawyer that is so not true. And I remember actually when I first became US attorney, and we all went to the White House for what was essentially a photo op with Eric Holder attorney general then, and you know, we're all lined up in the bleachers in the eastern there for the president to come in. And and you know, he comes in. And he looked at us there and said, look I have appointed each and every one of you, and I know you're going to do a great job. But there's only one thing you need to remember. And that is you don't represent me you represent the people of the United States and as long as you remember that. You're going to do your job and everything's gonna be okay. That's so two thousand nine..

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.
