Trump Team Should Have Vetted Nick Fuentes
"To talk about this situation at Mar-a-Lago for a moment. Now, over the long holiday weekend, president Trump hosted Kanye West who now goes by the name Ye. And hosted him for a dinner, Kanye West was wanting Trump to either back out of the presidential race because Kanye says he's going to run for the presidency. And there was there was some sort of a big to do about that. Anyway, that doesn't really matter. So at this dinner, president Trump says it was just supposed to be Kanye West. But Kanye West shows up with Nick Fuentes, who is a known white nationalist and also an anti semite. And they all broke bread together. Now all you know what is breaking loose over this? And a lot of people very upset, including a lot of conservatives. As a matter of fact, congressman James comer, who's going to be heading up the Biden administration, says the president needs to be a bit more mindful of who he's having dinner with. Now, president Trump says, hey, look. I didn't know who the guy was. I was supposed to have dinner with Kanye West, and he shows up with all these other people, what was I supposed to do? Well, let me offer some guidance here if I can. And far be it for me to tell the president of the United States who we should and should not have it Mar-a-Lago for dinner. But it seems to me somebody had to have known who Nick Fuentes was. President says he has no idea who the guy was. Well, somebody did. You can't just waltz in tomorrow long ago. Anybody who shows up at Mar-a-Lago, guess what? You've got to turn over your social security number. They've got to run a background check, Secret Service is to the brim over there. As a matter of fact, president Trump is the only president. Who still has a full compliment of Secret Service agents.
The Media Needs Donald Trump
"We can get in the weeds on this if you want. I don't think anybody can waltz into Mar-a-Lago and sit down and have dinner with Donald Trump. There's got to be Secret Service that vet the people that dine with him, so I don't know if he knows the guy or doesn't know the guy. I know he knows Kanye, 'cause he was, they're Friends, I guess, although it didn't go well, apparently Kanye who seems to be in the middle of a continual like psychotic episode. Kanye evidently shed to Trump that Kanye is going to run in 2024 and Trump ought to be his vice presidential running mate. Well, you can imagine how well that went over. I'll bet that went over real well. How'd you like to be a fly on that wall? Again, back to the Desperate Housewives lady knocking the table over. But seriously, they're just consumed their obsessed. They can not and will not let him go. They need him. The worst thing that could happen to them. I'm telling you, the worst thing that could happen to them is that he goes away. Nobody wants that. Isn't that interesting?

Darren Beattie: The Placement of the DNC Bomb on Jan. 6
"So unlike the RNC bomb which was sort of on a back alley behind a trash can not the likely one that would have been found The DNC bomb was planted very conspicuously right by the leg of a park bench right by the entrance and parking garage to the DNC This is right out in the open So we're supposed to believe that for like 17 hours no one found it no motorists driving by None of the pedestrians on a high foot traffic day on January 6th site The DNC physical security guard by the way a DNC invested in physical security regularly stationed 8 feet away from where the pipe bomb was planted So that physical security guard missed it And now the Secret Service of the United States missed it in a sweep which on their on the record as having conducted by the exits entrances and parking garage This is less than 8 feet away from where the pipe bomb was planted So all these people managed to miss the bomb and sure enough the FBI is withholding the critical footage of the bomber actually planting the bomb at the DNC when they say he did it And now we see that they very likely further tampered with the footage that they did release to make it that much more difficult to identify who this person is
How the DHS Became the KGB
"An FBI official described to the intercept intercept being reassigned this year from the bureau's international terrorism division where they worked on things like Al-Qaeda and ISIS to the domestic terrorism division to investigate Americans. Their job involves penetrating online chat rooms and discussions to disrupt them. Now we are always talked about the famous we talked a lot about the famous disinformation governance board. When DHS announced and then quickly shut it down. But even though the board was shut down, its mission continues through other pernicious avenues. Immigration custom enforcement border patrol Secret Service they now all have their own anti disinformation components. The government using your taxpayer dollars without congressional oversight without congressional consent on a daily basis is no longer focused on ISIS or Al-Qaeda. No, they're using the terror apparatus that was built post 9 11 to go after you. Maga supporters, America first, conservatives, freedom lovers, this entire apparatus is for shredding the First Amendment, policing speech, and they are inserting and intervening into the distribution of information. How is this legal? And the answer is it really isn't.
Caller: Where Was the Secret Service to Protect Pelosi Home?
"Where was the Secret Service? Yeah. What kind of don't they have security for the Speaker of the House and her and her husband? I mean, she's too wrestled away from being the president, right? Wouldn't you assume that there'd be Secret Service. So this is a complete breakdown. Or it's a setup. This is going to be one of two things. You know what I can't resist doing? You know what you're reminding me of? What you're very smart comment reminds me of. I got to say it January 6th. Where there was a complete breakdown of security, there were, we saw video of cops letting people in, now, of course, they're going after them all one by one, boy, that's and wasn't Nancy Pelosi technically in charge of security of the capitol on January 6th. Yes, sir. And I believe that she turned down the offer to have the National Guard and extra capital police there as well. I guarantee you there'll be a lot of people who are going to make a comparison between the Pelosi attack and the security of January 6th. It's going to be impossible.
House panel: Trump's bills to Secret Service 'exorbitant'
"Documents released by a House committee showed Donald Trump's private company charged high rates for the Secret Service to stay at Trump properties during his presidency The House oversight committee says Donald Trump made more than 500 trips to his properties while he was president and the Secret Service was charged room rates of more than $800 per night at least 11 times documents show two charges of more than $1100 a night New York Democrat Carolyn maloney sent a letter to the Secret Service saying the exorbitant rates point to a possible taxpayer funded windfall for former president Trump's struggling businesses The Trump organization denies the allegations The former president's son Eric says the Trump family is likely the first family in American history to have not profited at the United States government Ed Donahue Washington

Liberal Caller: Donald Trump's Tantrum Led to January 6th Riots
"Don't know where to begin Todd. One, okay, Nancy closely had a reason to be upset. People were storming the capitol, urge on by Donald Trump. This would never have happened. If Donald Trump didn't have a tantrum, get mad, which was everybody knew he was going to do. None of this would have happened. People walked into her office, she had a reason to be upset. She didn't make a credible threat to Trump, she was communicating with Trump. The idea that she really, I mean, if Trump is scared of an 82 year old for a woman, I wouldn't be that surprised if Trump was. But I don't perceive her as much of a threat. And she is not in charge of the capital, please. There's the capital police board. So she's not even the one who makes those decisions. It's there's a place for that subject to do different congressional committees. Trump is the reason Trump is the reason there was a storming people carried Trump flags Todd. They didn't carry Pelosi flags to carry Trump flags and stormy. Why are you not do you think the blame to the man who's responsible for all of this? Jerry, you heard Donald Trump say protest peacefully. That's he said that over and over again in the speech on the Washington mall. Now look, the people that are ultimately responsible are the people who committed those crimes. And they should they should bear full responsibility, but I go back to the testimony of the U.S. capitol police chief who said 6 times 6 times they asked for National Guard help ahead of the demonstration because Jerry, the Intel was there. Even the Secret Service they came out yesterday and the seeker service do well in advance that there was a possibility for violence. Now, Jerry, you and I both know that you can manipulate a lot of stuff these days. And the concern I have is we do not know how many FBI agents were involved in the planning and the execution of what went down. And we just don't know that.
Nancy Pelosi Broke the Law by Threatening Pres. Trump
"Broadcast some exclusive video of Nancy Pelosi on the day of the January 6th riot at the capitol. Now, this happened before a single window was broken. It happened before anybody stormed the gates of the capital. And this is important. I've had a chance to watch the videos and it was a 7, 8 minute video, and I watched all of it. And I had a couple there were a couple of takeaways from this from this video. But before we go down that path, I want to play this audio of Nancy Pelosi saying she wanted to physically assault then president Trump. Secret Service said they have dissuaded him from coming to camp. They told him they don't have the resources to protect him here. So at the moment he is not coming, but that could. Put him out. I would pay for the waiting for this for trespassing on the cattle ground. All right, put your mouth and we're going to go to jail. He wouldn't be happy. All right. There you have it, folks. Nancy Pelosi, saying she wants to punch Donald Trump. I mean punch the man. Knock him out. Make him bleed. That's what Nancy Pelosi wants to do. I have a couple of things to say about this. First of all, it is a federal crime to threaten a president of the United States. As a matter of fact, there is a statute threatening the president of the United States is a federal felony under United States code title 18 section 8 7 one. So when Nancy Pelosi said she wanted to punch Donald Trump, she was breaking the law.
Julie Kelly: January 6th Pipe Bomber Investigation Remains Silent
"Yeah we've heard nothing about it Again you have been following this case You and maybe Darren Beatty and then that's it I've heard it from almost everyone just cites you two guys in your work That's it Any update if we found the bomber I mean this is a huge insurrection This is the key to the whole thing clearly It was fascinating Dan when the committee walked through the timeline of that afternoon that they intentionally overlooked what really started the panic that day and prompted the evacuation of neighboring nearby house buildings and that was the discovery of these two devices outside the headquarters of the RNC and the DNC just a couple of blocks east of the capital More surprisingly he Dan And this really raises more questions as to why the pipeline hasn't been identified and charged is that Kamala Harris a sitting U.S. senator the incoming vice president disclosed nearly a year later that she was at the DNC headquarters when the explosive device was found Now you and I have talked about this if there was a device there how did the Secret Service miss that on a security sweep Because she was under as the incoming vice president she was a protectee of the Secret Service that day And so I mean it's not just that they were going to blow up buildings and staffers inside You're talking about the incoming vice president was there The committee not only has ignored this in memory holds this so too has the DoJ and FBI We were told there was going to be this big investigation into it that the devices had been detonated that day There's a $100,000 reward for the capture of the pipe bomber I mean it is absolutely cricket out of the committee and DoJ and the media To your point Dan Darren Beatty and I are the only ones who continue to bring this up with your help as well
Julie Kelly: January 6th Committee Contradicted Itself in Last Hearing
"Well that's what's so interesting Dan as they have completely contradicted their original narrative with this was a spontaneous uprising and cited Trump's speech at the ellipse and he told his supporters to march down to the capitol That was their first narrative right That it was just spontaneous Now it seems like they're trying to produce all this evidence that Donald Trump knew for weeks or months in advance that this was going to be his plague book that day And then you have law enforcement and Secret Service saying that they saw things on websites that were that alarmed them But the bottom line is Dan what you just said the responsibility for protecting the capital was not Donald Trump's It was Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell Their sergeant at arms are on the capitol police board The capitol police board oversees security of the capitol building and surrounding buildings and of course the capital grounds They repeatedly denied requests by Steven sund who was then the chief of capitol police He asked them on January 4th EFM on January 5th and he asked them repeatedly throughout the day on January 6th to authorize the deployment of national guardsmen who by the way were at the armory at 6 a.m. on January 6th I talked to a D.C. guardsmen who told me they were there at 6 o'clock in the morning until they were finally called for duty about four 30 that afternoon Who delayed that and why why was the capitol so intentionally unsecure that day if they thought that this was going to happen ahead of time they just thought what a few bike racks and a couple of capital cops hate Come on

Does the FBI Need to Be Dismantled? Joe and Victoria Weigh In
"I had a 23 year FBI veteran on the show last week, Steve gray, who is calling out the bureau for their corruption. And he said exactly the same thing that Dan bongino said a week ago, a former 1811 Secret Service law enforcement officer, former NYPD, both said the FBI has to be dismantled, do you concur if so, what happens to its missions? And what do we begin in the lame duck two years of this senile old man in The White House? What can the good guys do on Capitol Hill? They have to deny funding for various categories inside the FBI, and the Republicans have the power to do this. And they have to be strong. They have to resist this. Oh, you're against law enforcement. No, because they will immediately be called pro crime, right? Right. And they have to be able to fund the police. And one of the easiest things they can do is stop the FBI from building a new headquarters. The site selection is now underway. The FBI is seeking advanced funding for site selection. The Republicans should refuse to fund any FBI site selection for a new headquarters until the reforms are put in place. That has to be done. They must not be allowed to build any more facilities, they have to stop funding. But they can't dismantle the whole thing. There are really good agencies the agents who came to our House kept apologizing. We don't want to be here. We're so sorry.

Glenn Kirschner's Insight Into Oath Keeper Trial Revelations
"So you have been covering, obviously, you've been at the oath keeper trial. Obviously the bombshell is Stewart Rhodes claimed to have contact with the Secret Service agent according to an ex member. Oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes claimed he was in contact with the Secret Service agent in the months leading up to J 6, a former member of the far right group testified. John Zimmerman, the former oath keeper, testified. He recalled how the oath keepers gathered guns in preparation for the possibility that Trump would invoke the insurrection act. He said of roads he did have a number for a Secret Service agent or claimed it to be a Secret Service agent back in September. Give us your take on that. So, you know, the Secret Service agent angle is interesting, but I think it's a bit of a sideshow and even a distraction because it has nothing to do with the charges against these 5 oath keepers that are on trial. So listen, I've been in there every day. I've gotten to talk, not about the case, but with the prosecution team, my former homicide prosecutors. I know a lot of the folks involved in the case. I would caution them not to go down that side road of Secret Service stuff and what's Trump involved because that has nothing to do with the charges. It's intensely interesting and concerning if Stuart Rhodes is actually in communication with the Secret Service, but mind you, this was back during a rally, a Trump rally in September in Fayetteville, North Carolina, so it really doesn't have much to do with the insurrection on January 6th. Interesting and will probably hear more about it in the future.

"So the story fascinates me, the whistleblower story, and all of the revelations about exactly what the FBI is up to. Folks, you know, when we initially initially got into the intelligence business, you know, obviously during the revolution you always had during the revolution and the Civil War, you always had intelligence and reconnaissance operations. Ironically, entity I was a part of the Secret Service got its name from a reconnaissance operation during the Civil War run by pinkerton called the secret services. That's where the Secret Service got its name. However, when we had a formal federal government sponsored intelligence agency like the CIA, and later the FBI moving into the intelligence arena, serious people who align with constitutional values in the constitutional republic were really concerned that those intelligence powers were going to be weaponized against us. And we're here right now. It's happening. I just read to you the headline from just the news and played for you the FBI whistleblower. Stating how the FBI has fallen in love with these intelligence cases because you don't have to shut them down. He called them E guardian cases, how people call him these tips. I jokingly called it turned in your maga neighbor week. See your neighbor outside with a maga hat? He's got a rifle bag. Who knows? Probably going to The Rain, to practice with his AR. All of a sudden you're calling the FBI. Oh my gosh, we got a dangerous semi fascist terrorist next story smells bad news at the plural too. He's probably a redneck and probably choose to back he. That's what they think of you. That's what they think of you. They think we're all like big loser idiots. Meanwhile, keep in mind, these are the same people who think that raising your taxes is somehow going to make the government spend their money, your money
"secret service" Discussed on WTOP
"A letter to the January 6th committee that text messages from around the time of the attack on the capitol may have been deleted. That despite requests from federal investigators in Congress members that they should be preserved. Congresswoman Stephanie Murray, who is a committee member, said the agency left it up to individual agents to decide what electronic records to keep and what to delete. Well, joining us now to get into some of the details Washington Post national correspondent Philip bump. It's good to have you back. Thank you so much for joining us. Of course. So we had this Secret Service letter acknowledging these text messages were erased. They were trying to migrate to a new system in the weeks after the capitol attack, but really the agency had to understand about the preservation of records, right? Well, yes. That's one word of himself for a variety of reasons, including that this has been a subject of some national discussion since .16, the idea that these records need to be preserved. I think we're sort of in this space right now where we're not really clear on what's happening. It is absolutely the case that federal agencies migrate phones and that there can be errors that are introduced as results of that. We saw that with the FBI when there are the two FBI officials who were at the center of the Russia probe, they had theoretically had some text messages that were lost because they did migrations of their faults. Those were actually ultimately recovered. So this can happen. The question here, obviously, is twofold. The first is to what extent might this have been willful either on the part of the agency itself broadly or I'm part of specific agents. And then secondarily, is there any way in which these messages could be recovered? And I think that we're still sort of in the early stages of figuring out the answers to those. What there's another question, too, right? And that is, why was there such urgency to do this system migration? Yeah, it's not clear. I mean, obviously a transition of presidents is a time of transition for the Secret Service. Secret Service changes. It's staffing structure in ways that can accommodate new presidents. So I don't know that it's necessarily odd that it happened right then, given what else was happening in the secret services world. But yeah, I mean, we should not be in the habit of having an unenforced policy by which government employees are responsible for making sure they're on records or tracked. This is too important and particularly in the era of electronic communications. It is relatively trivial to make sure this doesn't happen. So I think that despite any excuses, the Secret Service might have, this was still obviously a failure on their part. And just before the scandal broke the Secret Service announced the retirement of director James Murray, effective at the end of the month, coincidence here? It's not entirely clear. I mean, I think we can always attribute these things to some coincidences. He's actually with some irony taking a job at SnapChat, which of course is a social media source that's predicated on disappearing messages, which others have pointed out. Murray was an appointee of Trump. He actually replaced the head of the Secret Service who was there in 2019 who Trump ousted. He was someone who was seen as being loyal to one of being an ally of one of Trump's most loyal people within the Secret Service. So it's very complicated. It's not entirely clear. This is entirely willing on the part of Marie. But yeah, the timing of it is for Murray, pretty good. But obviously raises some questions. Very quickly before we go. If, in fact, it is true that the Secret Service willfully didn't turn these documents over before they were deleted. How does that work? Is there some sort of some sort of tool to address that? Yeah, I mean, so there is a federal law that there has to be preservation of these documents. The national archives have, according to reports, has already reached out to the Secret Service to try and figure out what might have happened as possible that people could be charged with federal crimes for not having preserved these documents if there was if they were willfully and intentionally destroyed. Again, it's not clear that that's the case, but that's the worst case scenario. Philip always great to talk to you. Thanks much. Thanks. Washington Post national correspondent Philip bump. Three 14.

So Elmo is are there more than one is there more than one Elmo is because they The Washington Post describes the puppet this way young puppet Elmo. I don't know why they describe it that way. I mean, there's like a mom and a dad a moment maybe. And that's why? Okay, so oh, well it is. I didn't realize, yes, little Elmo has a father Muppet called Louie. And so Elmo is three and a half years old. And the Sesame Street lore, and little Elmo just got his, oh, this is big. Little Elmo just got his China virus vaccine. So anyway, now Ted Cruz is very upset because he says there's no scientific backing here to say that three and a half year old Muppets need to be getting China virus vaccines, grace pain. That's a fair point. I mean, is there data to support a Muppet getting a vaccine? I didn't know they needed back to you. So this is really all about, this is really all about indoctrination and propaganda. All right, so we've got this audio here. All right, so this is a little Elmo talking to his father Louis about getting the China virus vaccine. Let's listen. Just like Elmo. You were super duper today. Getting your COVID vaccine Elmo. There was a little pinch, but that was okay. Elmo was really glad to have daddy and baby David. Baby David. I had a lot of questions about Elmo getting the COVID vaccine. Was it safe? Was it the right decision? I talked to our pediatrician so I could make the right choice. I learned that Elmo getting vaccinated is the best way to keep himself, our Friends, neighbors, and everyone else. Healthy and enjoy them, the things they love. Oh, Elmo and baby David have a question. Can we have a hug? Oh, come here, son. I love you too. It's okay to have questions about COVID vaccines for your kids. Get the latest facts by speaking to your pediatrician or healthcare provider. I have a question. I have a question. Grace baker. Well, you're not a parent, but go ahead. You can ask a question. So to my knowledge. So I have a question here about this vaccine. Sorry, continue. It's all right. I want to take your question very seriously. Thank you. The little Elmo, did he sound like that before he got the vaccine? I think so sources say yes, but that is a frightening voice. In the back. Hello, daddy. I don't know, that just sounds weird. That's just Elmo for you. All right, is that the one that goes around tickling people? Yeah, tickle me Elmo. Okay. We all knew there was a problem when they came out with the toy called tickle me elbow. Yeah, especially in today's age. Oh, was it? All right. And that's where it all started. I see. So Elmo as a three and a half year old is now getting the getting the vaccine. Yes. And he's very glad he did it. Well, it does make you wonder what happens grace baker when they unleash the monkey pox. I mean, can you imagine what they're going to be doing over it? Sesame Street with that happens. It's going to be pandemonium. Yeah. All right. It'll be interesting. We'll see. We'll see there. Okay, so there you go, folks. Sesame Street. Now I'm telling three and a half year olds that you've got to get the vaccine and then your voice will never change. 844-747-8868. That's unfortunate. That's 844-747-8868 will be right back. We can't see tomorrow, but we can hear it. And it sounds like a renewable natural gas bus, replacing conventional fleets. We're bridging to a sustainable energy future, working today to ensure tomorrow is on, Enbridge, life takes energy..

"Right, welcome back to the show. Good to have you with us here. And look, I mean, I hear what Blake from North Carolina is saying, but I do believe that this election was stolen. Now, you've got Republicans out there who might argue semantics. But I think by and large, when you look at this president, when you look at the vice president who, by the way, when she was running in the Democrat primary, didn't even win her own state. How do you do that? You're telling me that all those people came out and voted for that. For a man who is of addled mind, by the way, even some even some conservative slash establishment Republicans. Acknowledge that there were shenanigans. That's the word that there were shenanigans at the ballot bars. Okay, where were the shenanigans? Well, they think the election was stolen. But they don't want to say that, because they'll be attacked by the mainstream media. So they use words like shenanigans. But it's true. That's that something happened, but you know what? We can't dwell on that anymore. We've got to move forward. And I'm not sure why Blake brought that up because it really has nothing to do. With this committee and the lies that are being spewed and the hearsay and the mistress. And by the way, that will be that will be the legal argument when the Secret Service testifies that will be the argument is that, well, you can't prosecute hearsay. You can't, you can't say that Cassidy Hutchinson was lying. She just overheard somebody say that. And she'll get away with it. You mark my words on that. She'll get away with it. By the way, Sean Hannity has some sources that are weighing in on this. Here's what he had to say last night on the channel. Well, you heard there is an incredibly bizarre hearsay allegation from a person who, according to our sources, was actually prepared. She wanted to work for Donald Trump outside The White House when he wasn't president at Mar-a-Lago, and according to people that I talked to tonight until others advise the former president not to hire her. In other words, according to the federalist and people I spoke to after January the 6th, she wanted to work for Donald Trump, that bad person. She's now testifying against. So I have a question for you. And this is, I want you to just think about this. Are these things beginning to have an impact on you? Are you just tired? Are you tired of it all? I know you love Donald Trump. You were a Trump supporter. You are still a Trump supporter, but now you're saying, you know what? We just got to move on. And Ron DeSantis is looking better and better every single day. But the scandals and the hearings and the allegations, it doesn't matter if they're true or not. But the piling on. And folks, these hearings are going to go right up to the you watch what's going to happen. The day before the midterm elections, there will be the mother of all bombshells coming out. Because you see, this hearing is not about getting to the truth. This is about some sort of a play, a morality play. And they've got to script and they're not deviating from the script. I'll give you a great example. Liz Cheney at the end of yesterday's hearing. Liz Cheney says, coming up next. Or we should get to we should get who is playing Liz Cheney in the O is Jane Fonda. In the made for TV movie, Jane Fonda, we should get Jane Fonda in here to actually do the voice, but Liz Cheney basically said coming up coming up on the next episode. We are going to expose the fact that our witnesses are being intimidated. Wait, what? Intimidating witnesses. That's a serious charge. I mean, look, all of these are serious accusations. Do not get me wrong. I mean, these are these are infractions that would land people in prison and jail. So if, in fact, people really are being manipulated. If in fact, you've got bob bosses going out there and trying to shake down these witnesses and get them to change their testimony. If that is in fact happening, why would we not want to address.

"All right, somebody from Politico was clearly listening to the first segment of the show. This coming from Betsy Woodruff Swan, the Secret Service spokesman. Now says that in the ten days before the hearing, the January 6th committee did not reach out to them for more details regarding the ride and the beast. So why do you think that is? We're gonna reach out to Liz Cheney's office, as a matter of fact, grace, let's get let's see if Liz Cheney spokesperson will come on the program. Maybe they can explain why is it that you did not reach out to the Secret Service? I mean, you have somebody testifying and this person testifying under oath using hearsay when in fact you could have just picked up the phone and called down to the Secret Service and asked them what happened, but nobody did that. And again, I suspect it's because this is really not about guilt or innocence. This is about putting doubt into the minds of every American citizen. They want you to believe that Donald Trump beat up a couple of Secret Service agents and tried to hijack the presidential limo. They want you to be lead that. And people believe it. People believe this crap. They want you to believe that the president was slinging around bottles of ketchup and breaking the porcelain plates in The White House. They want you to believe that because when election time comes along, there's going to be some doubt and you're not going to remember all of this. But what you will remember is, oh, wait a second. They said that Trump beat up his Secret Service detail. And he tried to overpower them and commandeer the presidential limo. I can't vote for that guy. This guy swings around ketchup. We can't be wasting catch up. It costs too much money these days. He squanders ketchup. I can't vote for that guy. That's what this is really all about. And by the way, we're going to get to the phones here. By the way, Hillary Clinton lurking in the shadows, lurking, and it looks like she very well may be jumping into the race. She was asked about it. And notice that she did not say no in her in her response. So there's a good chance Hillary Clinton could be the Democrat nominee in 2024. What a rematch that would be. And the Democrats are terrified. That's why they're trying to destroy this guy. All right, let's go to the phones WSJ S in North Carolina, Blake on the line, Blake, what's going on? How you doing? I'm doing well. On the Cassidy Hutchins, the two stories, the one in the limo and the other story about the catch up on the law on that. Those are easy. Those are bringing other people in and put them under oath. And if they understand the constitution and don't like perjury charges, brought against them, then they'll tell the truth. Why do you think they didn't do that Blake? I mean, they had the opportunity. Honestly, I have no idea. I think it was such a fault from that committee that they've laid out pretty good evidence as it's gone forward. They have a number of the right people to talk in front of them, but they didn't do their due diligence here. And they've left an opening for shows like you to really exploit that. And you should, because it was a huge mistake on there. What do you mean shows like? Just conservative talk shows. That's all I mean. All right. You have more of a conservative then. You know, that's all I mean. Fair enough..

"To make sure thank you, grace. So apparently, we have a connection to a source in Hollywood, and I don't know how this happened, but we, ladies and gentlemen, the Todd show, we have obtained an exclusive movie trailer for apparently an upcoming movie based on whatever happened on January the 6th. This is fascinating. The first time this is a ramp and let's take a listen. Now playing at a movie theater near you. Jay 6 democracy under attack. Starring Ember heard as scorned junior staffer Cassidy Hutchinson. I heard my friend Sally, tell me that her cousin Li weigh in overheard her mom talking to her hairdresser about her boyfriend Sal, who heard a Secret Service agent say that president Trump tried to fly Air Force One into The White House. And I know it's true because Sal is a mall cop. Hearsay, ripped straight from the headlines. What's special appearances by Jane Fonda has Liz Cheney. The crypt keeper as Nancy Pelosi. Jabba the hutt as Jerry Nadler. So I was like watching Selling Sunset and I got this anonymous DM and they said president Trump beat up two Secret Service agents and tried to commandeer the beast. And you saw this first hand? Well, no, but I saw it on Twitter, so it has to be true. Guilty. The president is guilty. And a special guest appearance by Donald Trump as mister president. Lies, it's all lies. She's a very negative person and quite frankly a sore loser. It's fake news. It sounds like she wants a job at CNN. Everyone knows I can't drive a stick shift with my big beautiful huge hands. They're massive. I'm telling you. J 6 democracy under attack, a Trump exploitation film. Jurassic Park better watch out because that's going to be the next big blockbuster hit. Liz Cheney terrified me. A Jane Fonda pulled off an amazing, amazing portrayal. Yes, very talented. What he said, the Trump had huge chance. He can't do the sticks. That's true. It's very tricky. I'd heard that. So it must be true. Must be true.

"That's you'll see your view on how you fix it. Protects the president and the presidents of the future more women would surely help and president. Obama actually said that to the director julie pearson. When he was with her in brussels he said you need more women and she said she. You know look look boss. I'm working on it but another thing that would help a heck of a lot would be somebody from outside the secret service or someone inside the secret service who cares enough to crack down on this behavior the cover up. That is the reflex of the secret service is. What's killing the standards when you have a director who says i'm going to know to himself. I'm gonna keep my job by pretending. Nothing bad is happening and not and not being clear with folks. You're destined for failure. But unfortunately what julie pearson found. She was the director who came up and tried to clean up this bad boy behavior which she found is she was sabotaged by her peers. Sabotaged by men. who didn't like the crackdown. On bad behavior she reassigned some male supervisors. Who weren't able to kind of control their teams and when she did that they came for her. They tried to do everything they could.

"The man says i jumped over the fence. It's just sort of stunning. Every single again security layer was on the fritz alarms sensors cameras lights. All of them have sale. You're in them so that the officers couldn't find who they were looking for. They couldn't find the burglar at the white house. And then the last thing gonna fails is the officer who actually detained jonathan tran. His radio isn't working properly and so he cannot call for backup. He thinks he's calling for back-up but none of his fellow officers know what's happening or know where he is we've just been detailing to us. The extraordinary stories of what goes on board with the prostitutes and the black holes and even the number of people who've managed to get into the grounds of the white house and get very close to even meet him like obama at one point. The real sense listened to you speak but also reading. You'll book is your shocked by this that what started out as you puts on this story by the washington post to find out what happened in columbia. You've you've spoken to loads of people in the secret service In the government's both cohen am former. And you seem genuinely shocked this. This is the state of the agency. That's charged with protecting the president of the united states. America you hit the nail on the head. I thought i really understood. So much. about the secret service. After especially to cartagena a series of of horrific conduct cases and security breaches that covered in the next two years. I thought it really understood how upsetting and troubled the agency was. But as i look deeper i realized these weren't outlying events. They were not one offs or three offs. They were part of a broken culture. A broken culture that the secret service has covered up for their own point burnishing the brand and their own embarrassment and also so directors can keep their jobs and supervisors can keep their jobs. But i also found. This culture was broken because the employees the front line agents. The front line officers are desperately disappointed with their own bosses. They want this to be resolved. They feel overwhelmed and under-resourced and they also feel like the promotion culture at the service is one that rewards. Good ole boys who who helped cover up the problems as opposed to really addressing and fixing them and so yes. I was stunned to find out. There was a swinger on the president's detail. I was and that he was using presidential trips for that purpose. I was stunned. That all of the security failures that happened right under my nose that had been carefully concealed from me from congress and even from the white house and the president. And you've talked about how. It's understaffed under resourced. That working long hours is it. Paul of the sort of unspoken deal. The we know you're working long hours away from your family. A lot of the time. Your under pressure so we just gonna when we would go aboard. We'll turn a blind eye. Let your head out. That's part of the deal. I don't know that supervisors ever say exactly that way. But it's the unspoken rule essentially or the unspoken mantra which is hey guys are working too hard. They're giving up their white their anniversary with their wife. Some agents i met had had to skip being the best man at their best friends wedding because of an assignment that came up at the last minute. They're giving up so much standing in stairwells overnight. They because of that sacrifice some of them and not all of them. Let's be clear. Some of them have taken it as a given that they should be allowed to party hard. The problem is it's a huge risk to national security and also crucially. I mean we've all partied hard at various times. I wouldn't necessarily want to be holding a gun. Charged with protecting the president split-second decisions a crucial the next day. And i suppose that's the real concern. Isn't it the overworked. Overtired over partied. Secret service agents when split seconds really matter it's source of. It's a good surprise me. It's sorta surprised we haven't seen something more serious happen in terms of someone getting through protection getting through to the president. I'm so glad you said it exactly that way. You totally understand what we're dealing with here. I mean the reason. President kennedy was killed is attributable to two or three different factors but one of them has to be considered as a serious contributing factor. And that is that they were out late at night. Many of the agents who will with him in dallas and they were drinking until two and five in the morning so as as earl warrant and the chief justice who ran the warren commission that investigated. Kennedy's death said in the hearing to the director of the secret service. You cannot tell me that a man who has stayed up all night and has had a few drinks is going to react in the same quick manner as someone who got a good night's sleep and to be clear the drinking sometimes is to the degree that it's just laughable. I mean this number two agent. On the president's detail was caught driving home from a big party retirement party for one of his friends in a car driven by a colleague both of them had had plenty had been served plenty at this bar and irish bar in downtown washington. They drove back together to the white house through an active bomb investigation. Seen on the side of the white house grounds. They appear to have not looked at their phones and blackberries to know that that was happening though it was their responsibility to know the security at the secret at the at the white house complex and were able to then drive home allowed by their own colleagues after they were questioned about whether they've been drinking. They admitted that they had this is what happened. The there's no question that that kind of behavior has an impact on security. And the reason. I'm so glad you raise it. That is agents said to me over and over again in a pleading way. We are worried. You've got to do something we've got to do something. We think our president is going to get killed on our watch. So that's my last question is is. How do you fix this. They've been other organizations both. Stay on five around. The world who've had similar problems is it just a question of money resources and you do have more bodies available. So people aren't is overstretched is culture thing do you need. Fewer men may be some gender parity in the hiring decisions..

"The director of the secret service goes onto the capitol hill to testify before congress to say he is shocked. Just shocked that this kind of gambling is going on in the casino but agents told me this was no surprise and what i learned for the purposes of the book. Matt was this has been going on not just for decades in the weeks before cartagena was uncovered by reporters like our pap- at our paper in the weeks before there had been other horrific episodes an agent who was on the president's trip to asia got so drunk that he fell sort of exhausted unconscious in a brothel and he and he didn't arrive and didn't catch the plane in time to hop on the rest of the trip. The tour with the president around to a couple other asian countries. Wow see a senior supervisor to stay behind with him jeopardizing really the trip. Because every single person has an assignment has an expertise. They had to ship in a whole new group of people to help. Replace this one brothel visitor. I also learned that in the weeks. Before the event in cartagena the secret service director had been alerted and that they had found a member of the president's detail president obama's inner circle of his detail had been using presidential trips to hook up with strangers on a special secret app for swingers so meeting other couples he didn't know for sex in various cities. And what's so striking about. This is the idea of using a secretive apt to meet strangers randomly for swinger events in rooms. When you're on the road with the president makes you extremely vulnerable to blackmail and it makes the president vulnerable so while the director was saying i never heard of any of this thing before he very well had an i suppose. You're you know these people cowan guns in lots of cases. They've got their security passes on them particularly for themselves in hotel with strangers. There is a genuine security threat. It's not dates sort of salacious outrageous revelations. But there's a there's a there's a genuine security aspect to this but it's not just what they go aboard is some of the stories that you've uncovered In your book cowl detailing. What's going on in the white house. Now people would think that the white house the grounds of the white house must be d- most secure will few acres on the planet. Potentially no. i've been to the white house. What's the palava to get in with paul's this and that and check your bags and security in and yet to just repeated stories of every intruders managing to get in a couple who managed to sneak in but attended dinner with barack obama. Yes yes oh my goodness barack obama when he sat down in. I believe it was brussels in two thousand fourteen or twenty fifteen with the then director julie. Pearson she was alerting him to another security gaffe with agents getting drunk in on his trip to the netherlands and they passed out in the hallway of the hotel for the president was going to be staying but as i say she was explaining to him. Hey i'm really sorry about this to know before it shows up in the papers and he reads her the riot act. Says let me list for you. All of the ways. The secret service has eft up while i've been president. This is not a barack obama problem he says to her. This is a secret service. Problem and among events are the ones you just mentioned a reality. Tv or a a wannabe reality tv couple. They want their auditioning for a show. They find a way into the white house and slip. Pass the palaver. You mentioned just they just they just explain. Oh well. we're very well dressed. We're invited to the party. There must be a mistake on the list and they get in and they get their picture taken. They aren't even screened properly. It's a huge embarrassment. But other people get in in ways that are very much like a burglary in daylight and sometimes at nighttime the first most spectacular one matt is in twenty fourteen september. It happened to be my anniversary dinner. When i had my phone basically exploding on the desk of of the dinner table where we were eating because every source i had was letting me know. A man had just broken in jumped over the gates in plastic crocs with a limp from his war injury in iraq. He's a retired veteran. He runs from a public sidewalk over the fence. Across the north grounds and strides. Right into the front door of the white house in twenty nine seconds while there are more than a hundred fifty people who work for the secret service that night that are responsible for the security there officers. Emergency response technicians. There's a canine team. There are two canine teams. There are counter assault agents on the on deck. There are supervisor's. There's a command center. Multiple rings of security every single one of them fails and he gets inside. Everyone promises after that that horrible and humiliating day that this will never happen again that they're gonna raise the fence. They're going to amplify the number of people ondeck ondeck. They're going to make sure. There is no possible way. But i know you're going to be shocked when i tell you it happens again. Weeks into donald trump's presidency. It's march twenty seventeen. He's upstairs and as often is on a friday night watching television. He's watching the news seeing how he's being covered riveted by that coverage meanwhile a man who's delusional thinks. He needs to reach the president. Tell him a couple of alarm sound officers from the secret service come running.

"You're listening to the white box podcast. Now it's time for my interview. Calderoni from the washington post in picture the secret service. And you're probably imagining smart. Fit highly trained highly disciplined. Highly serious men and women. Dark suits dark shades whispering into their cuff but a new book reveals the people charged with protecting the united states the vice president their families and closest allies times while they continue to themselves from white house intruduce breaking in thanks to faulty alarm systems to agents traveling aboard taking prostitutes back to their hotel room understaffed under his almost an quite a lot of pressure. These are the seat quits. The secret service. And they'd be movable the author cowl clinic and a new book zero fell devise full of the secret service and college joins me. Now hi kyle. Hello how are you mad of goods very good. Thank you so much for joining us so before we get to the juicy stuff of what's perhaps the secret service have been getting up to in more recent times. Let's go back to the beginning. If eli describe for us how the secret service came to be responsible for the president. It's just fascinating story and largely misunderstood by even americans right. The secret service was created in eighteen. Sixty five just a few months. Actually after abraham lincoln was assassinated it was created not to protect precedents but to protect our money. The paper currency floating around the united states in the middle of the specially the latter half of the civil war was phony and it was threatening the actual economy of the country as it was trying to rebuild towards the end of the war. Very very bad. The president wanted to fixed up. He was killed before His idea and his treasury secretaries idea was launched the real way the secret service began protecting. The lives of the president happened. After the assassination of president. Mckinley luther d- president who had been assassinated by a person walking up to them with a gun and the idea was. We have to actually do something about this. We can't keep pretending that the president's safety is an afterthought it has to be primary. An obviously people have got the cleavage as whatever they see. The president now with the is in real life fall in film. So it's that sort of coterie of of people around haven how many people in the secret service and who. Who are they protecting. The secret service is the norm now but it also has an enormous job and the not so enormous budget so we think of the secret service. Everyone does because of movies because of films as the dark suited. Trim guys with the sunglasses and the earpieces around the president. There are seven thousand agents officers and other administrative employees who work with the secret service. Only a third of those people that are agents and only a small fraction of those are responsible for protecting the president. In addition to protecting the president and the secrets protects grandchildren of the president. Gran stepchildren of the vice president. We make the secret service responsible for creating the security for all sorts of special events that could be the target of terrorism. We make them in charge of still their legacy responsibility investigating counterfeiting investigating financial crimes. And cyber hacking they're also responsible for protecting all foreign leaders who landed in the united states. Live here and for those who visit for the united nations general assembly one hundred and seventy leaders who have arrived safely and leave safely. Thanks to the secret service. So it's a huge. It's a huge job. They've got to do what you've discovered in your book is. That's at after twenty years of work for the washington post. Eight different presidents is that behind the scenes They've got a huge job to do. It's not always done. That is well said that last part. It's not always brilliantly done. They have too much to do even senior presidential assistance. I interviewed cabinet members. Deputy secretaries that. I sat down with said this agency cannot deliver on the mission that is assigned to then the is another problem. This word secret service. Sounds very alluring and mysterious and there are secrets that the secret service has to keep. We don't want enemies of our country understanding where the president goes in the time of a nuclear attack or bomb. We don't want people to understand how we protect him from anthrax or from gunshot. We want to be a secret so it's not easier to kill him however the secrets of the secret service that that that moniker has been used by some arrogant subset of the secret service to cover up for their failures to cover up for their. You know bad boys gone. Wild behavior and that arrogance That party atmosphere that they believe they're entitled to has really put a dent in the secret service's ability also to carefully precisely execute. Its mission especially what the thing is. They are secrets in the what everyone to know the exact time that the president's going to be at a place or what they're going to be eating or who to be meeting but they're not very sexy could that not only are of limited value your long term. It's not like military plans or spending plans and that sort of thing so so y- y it's sort of. It's all tied up with the word makes it sound started. Let's let's get down to the nitty gritty some of the examples of where these bad boy you know. I think the american coverage your book your talks about afr- boy mentality at times. We eating what you've uncovered it. Sounds like a sort of the uk with body. Call it like a stag do vulnerable. Freshers week At a university that basically particularly sort of the secret service own toll sort of think go traveling and all hell seems to platelets. Talk us through some of the examples that you came across. Yes well you know it's funny. I love all the moniker. The names and nicknames for this behavior in the secret service they refer to it as a couple of things on the secret circus you know when they go to town. It's not hard to find out where they're drinking that night and also wheels up rings off the idea that when air force one has either not arrived or is just departing. The man of the secret service overwhelmingly. The men have a chance to meet a lot of women and party hard. The agency has had a row party hard reputation for decades female agents reached out to me during this period to say you know this has been going on since the nineteen thirties. The hard-drinking ways of the agency. But let me give you a couple examples when the secret service got famously. Caught red handed in cartagena in two thousand twelve. That's actually. When i entered the picture i was just assigned to help figure out. What in the heck went wrong. Why were a dozen secret service agents flown home from a trip with president obama. Why were they flying the opposite direction. The president was back home under investigation bringing prostitutes back to their rooms and getting southeast On that night before the president arrived. Keep in mind. They're supposed to be getting ready for his arrival and helping secure the city for that purpose but instead they are meeting a lot of new women paying some of them a lot and drinking bottle after bottle of vodka when they get busted for this publicly..

There's a similar you touched on this a bit in your column today. What you're talking about so snooping and big tech and actually that sorts of ways my driver whereas mine deliver whereas my champagne flavored ice cream all part of a bigger thing that you touch in the sort of snooping all the time. Yeah i mean. I think one of the connections is kind of being on the incident. A lot of own your phone just kind of jesus. That's kind of weird narcissism where your phone is just so desperately trying to find you things that you want to see all the time what will interest you. What do you want to look at what we advertise to you. Perfectly loans the interest. I wonder if we've kind of become a bit used to having little world is organized perfectly so every demands we now kind of expect the real will to organize itself like that over the point. The point of my the point. The point of my column was basically the internet's also kind of graduate erosion of standards of privacy rights to intrude in other people's lives has now become part of the real world. My ullman basically about hi. This is the kind of increasing more and more news stories about people film each other and posting it online people from colleagues try and get them in trouble and i just think the wider point of that column was the we just think that we the internet has accustomed to sing into people's private lives and judging them and now we have another smith's increasingly going into the real world and the whole uber delivery. Roofing really freaks me. Because i hate when you get when you order delivery newbie. You can see a satellite map with the person coming towards like you have this kind of right to know exactly where they are and then you have to kind of assigns starting at the end on. Ub you can get them patronize middle picture of like you know a diamond fact service or you can get a little kind of squatty washing bottle effect. Their car was very clean. And i find it very sort of. I just hate this. Sort of like intrusive judgmental attitude. Which i think isn't he really fostered by the internet. Now kind of becoming more and more part of everyday life is very the radi creepy. I think it's super creepy. I think seeing your driver approaching dot is super creepy. I think i think judging rating and judging and allocation points to people doing the job is rating yes super super creepy and of course yes we've all become a nation of constant cutting twitches except it's much worse than cutting twitching because it's cutting twitching and opening the window and loving a bucket of pu someone for treating you know job well done. It's yeah yeah it's it's not good just funny in. You're talking of bucket. Do you vote clamping and how it is. How how many fabulous. It's still just mucky campaign. It said ten fields and the thumbing. So you coming. Good for the former yes. I made the point thoughts. I think that middle class people really like three leading the bohemian. They like they like pretending cost accountant or a teacher or doctor and that there were kind of wild unleased person who lives in the field for two days and the cool things are going to happen. And actually you're much better off just doing normal camping or as i say column getting to a nice. Bnb already sorry for bnb's because airbnb kind of displace them and there are so many ready. Charming really affordable marvelous being please delicious breakfast and lovely places are just just going to be in. Be pretend camping's thing. It's not a thing yet. No i i completely agree. I think the I mean the only point of glancing. You're paying a lot of money to avoid the half hour massive. Ow you have one puts in the tense up and then after that it's just campaign after that it's the same. No worsely actually basically basic middle class people the worst whether it's on twitter all all doing ice cream online or glam squeeze awful. Somebody's message into say. I've just looked up. It was inimitable. James mary online. It was confused. Wikipedia claims is a former awesome film critic who died in two thousand twelve about attached to it. That is not true. It is confusing people. Protect this. I am touched alive. Did not die in two thousand twelve and if not written a series of books for horror films just to clarify. We talk about jobs. Jobs in the note were told not to make too big a deal out of it. Because i was talking to a very sensible deputy commentator and he says young people always wanting to kind of go go some news and if you see this irritates which was really annoying on twitter when people say some personal news and it's not fashionable. Yes exactly it's deeply minded professionally thing on the back and i'm going to go to the that's personal news that we don't yes. Do you want to know not on twitter and even worse.

You sitting in the adverts on the chew but do you want a bottle of diet coke in two minutes and someone will come and deliver it to josh. Yeah i mean. I've missed on this to even even though i live quote close to the middle of london are it's above a tesco so completely relevant to me i never by any grocery i basically consider myself liberal ginormous fridge whenever i wanted anything i just walked downstairs enter tesco which essentially paid for fridge most times in a single day being done to the shop. I get like six times a day. The security guards always always roll their eyes and laugh at me and they think ridiculous and she tells me to buy all my groceries and one go but i refuse to. Mice breaks to get tested for five minutes. What about you. I didn't i didn't know existed. These things existed until this morning actually when hiring freeze. I'm completely appalled by. I'm completely opposed that that their own cities cities by definition have lots and lots of convenience shops and supermarkets tesco expresses and goodness knows what i mean. How lazy do you have to be. How lazy do you have to be to go. I want but i can't be putting together off my backside even though there's one in the shop forty five seconds down the road.
