US justice department inquires into Nikola fraud claims
"They are under pressure because it appears there are now two agencies that are investigating Nikola this afternoon to reports one from Dow Jones one from the F. T. saying that the Department of Justice specifically, the US Attorney's Office for the southern. District of New York has made inquiries to Nikola regarding the fraud claims. By the way we have reached out Nikola. No comment at all. We've been unable to hear anything back from the company regarding this report of the DOJ investigating company remember yesterday the report came out that the S. E. C. is also looking into these fraud claims surrounding Nikola Nikola for its part says look we. Reached out proactively last Friday to the SEC and we said look we want you to look into these claims that were made. By Hindenburg, research those claims about forty three of them essentially saying that this is an intricate fraud that Nikola is perpetrating here and that basically investors are on the hook again, what you heard from Nikola not only on Friday, but also on Monday was a refuting of those claims from Hindenburg but today Enberg double down issuing another report basically saying we view Nicholas response as a tacit admission of securities fraud that tacit admission is because one of the claims from Hindenburg research was that a semi truck. That was filmed by Nikola back in two thousand seventeen was not actually propelling itself. It was being rolled down a hill. It was in motion. It was not an actual driving vehicle showing your General Motors because General Motors has said look we did appropriate diligence when it comes to looking into Nikola before striking the deal where General Motors takes an eleven percent stake. Nikola will have its badger electric pickup truck built by General Motors That's the latest in terms of what we have at this point Melissa. But what's interesting here is we have heard nothing nothing at all from the chairman of Nikola Trevor Milton and these two investigations you have to wonder if this takes away the real oxygen that has pushed this stock higher over the last month and that's Trevor Milton on social media

Is Trump abusing his power over the judiciary?
"This is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter before we go any further. I want to address today. Sentencing of a man Roger Stone Roger Stone. He's become the sentencing of Roger Stone. A LONGTIME CONFIDANTE DONALD TRUMP for lying to Congress obstruction and witness tampering was mired in controversy. Over how the. Us Justice Department handled the case under public pressure from the president. Mr Stone received a forty month sentence whereas prosecutors had recommended that he serve up to nine years. This followed seven cases of presidential clemency for White Collar criminals whose convictions included extortion fraud and lying to White House officials. Yes we have commuted. The sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail We have Birdie character we have Mike Milkin. Who's gone around and done an incredible job? Offer is the independence of America's judiciary under threat. Or as Mr Trump simply using the powers a lot to him on the line with me to discuss this is ed loose. Us National Editor and columnist and Cottam Schober US legal and enforcement correspondent. I let's hear a clip from president trump taken. Just a couple of days before stone sentencing. Just so you understand. I chose not to be involved. I'm allowed to be totally involved. I'm actually I guess the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved but he is a man of great integrity. But I would be. I could be involved if I wanted to be man of integrity he is referring to is the US Attorney General William Bar but is this credible given the tweets he published before the sentencing of Roger. Stone got tell us first about the case of Roger Stone which you've covered for the F. T. Who was he exactly? What was his crime? And was the sentence particularly lenient for this kind of case. Roger Stone is a flamboyant veteran political operative in the US. His career goes all the way back to working on Richard Nixon's election campaign and he has basically been the person you call as a Republican presidential candidate. When you want to get your hands dirty. He called himself a dirty trickster and he is an expert in this sort of Makir side politics in the two thousand sixteen election. He was a sort of informal adviser to Donald Trump. And one of the things he was trying to do was make contact with wikileaks. When it became known that wikileaks had a trove of hacked emails from the Democrats to use it for political gain. The thing that he was convicted of is in two thousand seventeen when Congress began investigating. What exactly went on to twenty sixteen election? The House Intelligence Committee called on Mr Stone and asked him about some of the comments he had made during the campaign and Mr Stone lied to. Congress about who is intermediary was or who he was referring to when he was talking about having an intermediary allied when. He said that he didn't have any documents or any written materials or any taxed of his conversations with that intermediary. The sentence he eventually received was actually probably pretty in line with what other sort of white collar criminals convicted of lying to. Congress or the government have received the key issue in his case was he had threatened a longtime friend of his who was also another witness. Basically saying don't contradict my story and those thrashed included threatening his dog for example the key issue at stake was whether he was serious about that and whether therefore has sent should be jacked up significantly because he had made violent threats and eventually the judge took the view that although it was serious that he'd made violent threats. The person that he had threatened didn't actually feel like they were going to experience violence. Ed Tell us a bit more about Mr Stone. And the history of his friendship with the President and whether you think Mr Trump's tweets constituted interference in the judicial process. Yeah as I said. He's a flamboyant dirty tricks. Who GOES WAY BACK TO LATE? Six hundred seventy trump maximum in the late seventies. He was introduced to try but he quickly hit it off. They shed philosophy of you know playing to win that no method is invalid. Never apologize never explain. Stone set up with couple of other people are very well known lobby group in Washington. One of his clients was trump who was seeking tax breaks a casino. He was setting up in Atlantic City. And really they've been great friends since then so the ties between trump and stone go along way that very deep and they're often allegedly nefarious in terms of the League outlook from this. I have no doubt that trump will seek to podcastone fast opportunity. Trump's on the Guy Senate acquittal spring cleaning of his administration ruthlessly seeking out anybody who isn't very very loyal so to get rid of weather that Meghan appointees the civil savage. Anybody perceive does slightly disloyal. Not Enough is being pledged. Loyalty is a hugely important hugely. Important thing to trump and stern has shown loyalty he has not. He is not divulged things that have damaged the president. He's showing toughness. He's been very Trumpian in how he's dealt with. Franchi's accused the judge me by of being a biased judge which she's rejected this very trumpian and I have no doubt that it will culminate in at some point. President trump pardoning Roger Stern question about what trump actually did part of the reason. Roger Stone was so controversial. Was that line prosecutors involved in this case we're uncomfortable with what Mr Trump and the justice department we're doing. Can you explain that to viewers and why it was such a problem so there are four prosecutors who secured Mrs Jones conviction trial so the trial team? They filed their sentencing recommendation which was seven to nine years which there's no bones about it. That's a serious sentence for anybody to serve and then that evening all of a sudden early hours of the morning so after midnight trump tweets calling it a miscarriage of justice. He says this is unacceptable and Lo and behold the very next day the DOJ which is the US Department of Justice DOJ officials. Start saying that they agree that the sense would be unwarranted and adair kind of reverse it. The following day afternoon we see all four the prosecutors quit the case including one of them actually quits his job at the DOJ entirely and subsequently a new sentencing recommendation is put forward. Which says we'RE NOT GONNA ask for a particular sentence but it ought to be far less than seven to nine years. The idea that four prosecutors would quit a case. All at once is astonishing and it was a very serious and important moment and DOJ his trip shook the DOJ. It was a very dramatic moment in Washington and the question then was was doj senior leadership. William bar the. Us Attorney General. Was He reacting to an order from trump or was something else going on now the lion that DOJ has stuck to is that there was a miscommunication between the US Attorney's office in Washington DC and between main justice headquarters also in DC? But they're separate offices. Basically Mr. Barr says he was not expecting to see a seventy nine year recommendation. The new prosecutor brought on sat at the sentencing that the prosecutors who filed a recommendation that you good faith and thought that they had been given approval to do so and so Mr Bar said listen. This is not about trump. This is about. I think that that sentence was appropriate and I was not told about what was going on. The important thing here is whether or not Mr trump explicitly ordered the attorney general chains recommendation. It's still gets to this question about how our friends of the president being treated in their cases now it's pretty common across the US for federal prosecutors to request tough even harsh sentences. That's not unknown. You don't often see the attorney general weighing in to ask for lighter sentences and certainly DOJ policy at the moment is to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law to secure the longer sentences possible so whether or not Mr Trump's tweets were an express order to Mr Bar that he followed a whether he was acting independently. It still gets to this question about if your friend of the president. How are you going to be treated by this? Doj while we're on the subject of Friends of the president. The other thing that happened last week was a series of presidential pardons for White Collar criminals specifically several that have connections to Mr Trump. I talk about Michael Milkin. What did he do and why does it matter that he was pardoned? Michael Milkin is to people on Wall Street a hero. He effectively invented the junk bond or high yield bond market in the eighties and then he was brought low by prosecutors and the SEC and eventually guilty to securities fraud and nine hundred ninety. He served about twenty two months in prison after being initially sentenced to ten years. Ever since then he's been rebuilding his reputation. He's a philanthropist. Now has the Milken Institute and for a long time people on Wall Street rich and powerful people have felt that he was prosecuted unjustly and deserved a pardon. The other person. Mr Trump pardon rod blagojevich is perhaps less of a popular figure in any area. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois and was prosecuted for trying to extort a children's Hospital for campaign contributions and also trying to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama when he became president his case involves some quite lurid wiretap quotes. Where he talked about Mr Obama's Tennessee. Being a very valuable thing with various explosives and that he wasn't going to give it away for nothing. The fact that these pardons came just a day or two before Roger. Stone's sentencing is pretty mistake -able signal of Mr Trump's power to grant clemency. Whatever case that he wants so prosecutors can go after his fans and associates. Jerry can commit crimes. Judge can sentence them to however long they want ultimately. Mr Trump has under the constitution the pardon power and that was a pretty stark exercise of that pardon power on the eve of a close friend of his being sentenced. Ed Do you think we're gonNA see more interventions this spy trump perhaps related to the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the election. People like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Who Manafort I think would definitely be a case for another pop and I would be very surprised if Michael Cohen Without Him. Because Michael Cohen Tablet Trump describes a rat in that inimitable. Kind of multi language that the president sometimes uses Michael. Cohen testified to Congress very damagingly against president. Trump's he's considered to be a tax cut. The thing that links you know all these Haden's whether it's Michael Milkin Rod Blagojevich Obama Carrick. Us police commissioner who was the security guard incidentally for Rudy Giuliani. The thing that links all of them is that they're pretty well connected people who've committed white-collar crimes and who have upbeat through Fox News. In some cases that Bregovic wife spoke on Fox News. He carrots by on Fox News to capture the president's attention and I think the pattern is again very trumpian thing. It's it's about. People who trump identifies with he feels as acute. Did he feels. He's fatty toxic at he. Identifies WITH OTHERS. Who fit that description again though. The role of connections and of mutual friends and a Fox as dishing platform for pardon. These are very common. There's a pattern here. How big a cause of concern is all this. I mean it's trump's use of the pardon power markedly different from other presidents will Clinton famously on his last day in office Rich Hedge Fund billionaire and friend of the Clintons Madonna to the Clintons and that caused a lot of bad blood. Clinton was heavily criticised for intervening on behalf of a friend and it stood out and I guess the reason I mentioned that is it. Was Fatty unusual. It's now completely normal. Trump has happened many many people who under the inventions of us? Pardon history wouldn't ready quantify so I think he has changed quite dramatically and just to add on. There's an interesting historical link year. Another controversial use of the pardon power in the past was George H W Bush who infamously pardoned a whole swath of former officials who are indicted in connection to the Iran Contra Scandal and bill bar the current. Us Attorney General was back then also attorney general and so Mr Bar He had pushed not just for one. Pardon of Caspar Weinberger. Who was the former Secretary of defense? He said listen. If you're gonNA pardon any of these people you have to pardon all of them. I think his quote was in for a penny in for a pound and so you may have the curious historical echo if MR trump loses later this year of his attorney general at the end of his time in office being the same attorney general at the end of George W Bush's time in office advising him on. You know who to pardon before he leaves Hamas all this been received in Washington and then around the US do people care. It's been received as many other actions by president trump being received with a high temperature reaction inside the Washington. Beltway and shrug outside the GNOMES that being trashed here in a row very significant look at the powers of the presidency. The procedures the the president uses before he acts and the conventions so that being shredded caused great angst in Washington. Dc across the political divide and almost badly registered a ripple outside of Washington. The same of course applies to impeachment. It really didn't resonate much isn't resonating match in the Democratic primaries. In places like Iowa New Hampshire and so I think this is far far lower. It may be it should be different than ideal while but it registered FAFA LOA on the vote says right of than than even impeachment.
A Complete List of Trump’s Pardons and Commutations
"Today. Donald Trump continued his full on assault. On the rule of law pardoning and commuting the sentences of several high profile criminals he notably included former Illinois governor. Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat vacated because he was elected president in exchange for campaign contributions. Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.

"Is Bloomberg businessweek with Carol Vassar and Jason Kelly from Bloomberg radio it is now proximally three weeks since Carlos Ghosn the ousted head of Nissan and Renault escape from Japan over all obsessed chase in his early with the Hollywood like feel of this story real story there are still something we can't forget and that's the legal side of the story not a question still absolutely and we talked a lot about as you say the SK you have the dramatic you know sort of in the box literally like getting to Lebanon but what happens from here from a legal perspective that's what we really wanted to get into now great Fairless here this he has unpacked this in a way that few have and is here to provide some historical perspective as you look at this one of the key legal issues here the case against cone is not like a lot of cases brought against CEOs in United States where it's clear case of either insider trading or accounting fraud in order to boost up earning so that you can get your bones that the Enron stop and then we all remember from fifteen twenty years ago the case against cone is unusual in so far as it's a he's been accused of helping himself to more money than he deserved or somehow finagle a way to get the board to approve or unbeknownst to the board an even bigger pay packages then he was entitled to which is uncommon it's seen rarely here basically to my mind it brought back the case against former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski in the city of folk brought not by the federal government but by the Manhattan district attorney Bob Morgenthau back in the for five era and that was kind of a messy case was not clear they went after him on books and records issues it cetera but we do not have that clear residents that may come in Friday the securities fraud case has tackle shareholders we're not really burned by this yes Kozlowski helped himself to more money then yeah the board had approved but unlike and run unlike HealthSouth unlike some of these other world tech was a real profitable company and its shareholders we're doing well so this falls into that category gone was accused of helping himself to more than he deserved and basically parlaying his position to enrich himself another thing that was missing from you know Morgenthau's case can strike out but clearly present here is the plan and Carlos Ghosn referred to this in his press conference last week to basically fold Nissan into a wider right global automotive group that would basically you know remove the essential Japanese element from it or make it less of a Japanese champion brand that had been and you know I think sex got a point there that this is something that didn't go over well but it was in the works it was in our house it was in the works it's more than a coincidence I think that this very aggressive regulatory legal action prosecution of going to place at a time when the sun was in fact you know drifting towards the becoming an international brand unless of Japanese brand what's interesting I would go back to what you said of you know perhaps Carlos Ghosn helping himself to more than he was allowed is that a simple legal case to figure out in other words you just go back to the employment contracts and here's what they say you weren't allowed to have this house or so and so forth or when it comes to this kind of thing because I could certainly see with the board that's really happy with its CEO in Khost gone was lauded as is incredible auto executive ana in the industry really globally as an executive and I do wonder whether it's like oh yeah we like him yeah you can have that or you can do this like how do you go about legally proving it what's required hi well there's a lot of wiggle room cal you made a very good point here and that is he was a superstar CEO by the time this all unfolded a little more than a year ago and as you pointed out in his press conference last week somewhere near twenty books have been written case studies in business schools about his phenomena that serve you in saying what a great site yes everyone absolutely but this is at the far end of a twenty year reign certainly when you have that much six says over a period of time there are certain realities that happened we seen it here in the U. S. with very powerful you know we die CEO was to develop sort of a there's a hero worship and after a while technically all you know boards of directors are independent but over particular twenty year period where you know new board members come on it's at or after a while the board becomes if not a wholly owned subsidiary far less of an independent watchdog rack than what you have shareholder activists would would like us to have they do become that becomes a very comfortable relationship between the board and CEO because everybody's doing well why rock the boat and in that gray area is it whether or not you know going is entitled to this the board you have to either be different claims if this ever went to trial that the board was not aware of that himself that right on could say no I told them this or they knew that or we had a discussion at the end the last board meeting was set up to be interested in this site the money went through and ready okay yeah exactly exactly transaction there are lawyers for every board meeting and board minutes etcetera size are not like secret meetings that happen and people forget right so you know that is a very gray area and that's great feral one of the legal eagles here at Bloomberg and what I loved about his conversation was he put it in context historical context he followed everything from Enron to Tycho and those connections that he made to the Dennis Kozlowski story I thought were fascinating I also think it was funny that and starting to talk with him is like we had remembered that there were charges what were the charges exactly against Carlos go to we get into the particulars so obviously a story that continues to fall it is an over she said you're listening to Bloomberg chrisley coming up a profile of Leon black founder of Apollo global management with most influential voices.

The company declined an interview request but in a statement L.. Era Forcefully denied the allegations and says it will appeal. The New Hampshire cease and desist order other healthcare sharing groups say Elliot's actions are harming the reputation of the broader industry these ministries have seen rapid growth in recent years in part because of their lower cost.

Tobin offered a tip to obtain leniency. He told investigators the head women's soccer coach at Yale University. One of the bribe in order to get Tobin's daughter into the school.

"Which is funny because he was in the military for thirty three years. But like what are you gonna do? Extra. Would you like that? You didn't do already saw Flynn picking up trash on the side of the room. I would laugh I would point and laugh laugh at dogs poop on the side of the real. I would at least a picture at fill a little bit about. But I do it. I wouldn't don't feel bad, man. He's a traitor. There's this sorry, really quick. There's this whole argument about how giving them no jail time. We'll be good because it will incentivize people in the future to cooperate. But I say give them Slyke still jail time. But then just give you other people more jail time. Why don't we just do that? No will get off with no jail time. This is the first big one though. And he cooperated his first person to cooperate hard and fast, and constant and truthful and steadfast, right? So Muller is rewarding them, and I think that's why they subtly took out that no incarceration, totally part. Instead of saying fuck you recommend jail time. Now bitches. Little fingers each it. Basically just wore a fan of the SDN y approach I think like fuck these people. They knew what they were doing. I'm not going to give you the worst sentence that you could get because he co-operated, but you're still piece shit that did this. And this is why jail time exists. And there's so many people also that get incarcerated for right? And speaking of Cohen. Oh, yeah. He was sentenced Wednesday. And I've got a whole thing on Cohen and hot notes took around for that. So we learned Wednesday that the Trump inaugural is under criminal investigation criminal investigation now and joining us to talk about that is former securities fraud litigator. She practiced in the DC circuit court and in the southern and eastern districts of New York, and she's the host of resistance live, Elizabeth McLaughlin. Elizabeth welcome to molar. She wrote. Hey, I'm sorry excited to be here been a longtime comeback. I know I know we've been dying to have you on. So it's really an honor to speak with you. So it appears that the Trump inaugural spending and perhaps funding is under investigation, and you and I have been cut. During this for a long time and wondering how they raised over one hundred million dollars, and they got hundred eight million dollars twice over twice as much that Obama raised and we don't know where it all came from or where it all went. I think the only other person mainstream media that was has been like wondering about this as maybe Rachel Maddow. Oh, and I was hoping you could tell us briefly what this investigation is about. And what's new here about it? Yeah. So I, you know, you know, this as well as I do there have been questions about this inaugural funds going all the way back to like the week after the inauguration. So, you know, all the way back when Sean Spicer was still screaming in turning beat right about the size of the crowd. And I've been wondering forever about where this money came from. And there's been a lot of speculation from the very beginning about some of these payouts to no one of them went to this friend of Milanez. And no one really exactly understood what it was four. And then there were there were huge amounts that were missing millions and millions of dollars that sort of. To be unaccounted for. So there's been red flags around this as you know, for quite some time. But the big breaking news this week. In two separate reports has been not the inaugural committee. The inaugural fund is now under investigation as part of Muller's scope, and it's it's curious. So there's two things about it. That are new the first is that apparently in the raids on Michael Cohen, the feds found tape where he seems to be talking to this friend of Milania Trump's you've got all this money out of the inaugural about whether or not knows that is it the one started in rep is not the one that got almost twenty six million dollars s. Okay. Yes. And apparently, the two of them are on tape having a discussion about whether or not the payment is legit. So that that in itself is a big question. Mark you gotta love Michael Cohen taping all of his crimes, I mean, come on. It's a it's fascinating. He must have been at some point..

Join us, and we're fortunate to have this week with us from Yahoo sports is absolutely one of the best in the business that this is name is Dan Wetzel. And Dan, you had the joy of attending the NC double a basketball trial in New York City as it was going on in the first question. I ask is has anybody figured out. Why they even did this in the first place. Now, really now really I tell you the probably the most troubling part is what happened was a financial adviser in Pittsburgh got bucked it on securities fraud like a real crime. And part of his plea deal. Get out of it was he was going to give the feds college basketball in and, you know, amateur basketball, and he set up all these dudes and introduce them to the undercover agents to undercover agents working on this case for over a year. Let alone wiretaps secret meetings. I mean, everything and so they end up nail. And all these guys on what I would think is. A fake crime. If a crime at all and the guy actually committed crime, he's cool. So he got almost securities fraud for this, right? Like a sister coach is going to jail it is awful securities fraud. Absolutely. So we could get wiretaps of like thousand thirteen hundred dollar cash drops and stuff like that. And it's got committed a real crime. And you think about how much money was spent in resources, we got FBI undercover FBI agents. Cool. What we nail somebody doing something. Instead of a Dita's paying a kid. You know, ten grand. Okay. I wonder when it got to the tough though, somebody had to be disappointed that this all this was the head to be whoever made the call that. This is what we're going to do. I just feel like when this is all you get you can't be happy. Can you like this can't be what they thought they were getting? This is all just my opinion. I don't know what happened. Okay. But my guess is. 'cause if you look at this they had they were up on wires. They had got these two. To undercover agents had infiltrated the business a little bit. And it gained some trust yet. They pull the plug and arrest ten people that nobody knows other than Chuck Person because he's working as as the Auburn assistant. Now, they could've stayed on for another year. And now, maybe they're sitting there arresting a prominent basketball coach everyone's hurt up right now. Maybe it's Rick Patino and Bill self. I don't know. I don't know. I'm not using them doing any wrong. But we didn't your target be somebody big. Now, we got a story. Okay. Now. Now, we got something. Instead, it's like, look we got this. You know, we got system coach at Oklahoma state. Great. You know, we we got this middle manager at at a Dita's. Boy, we really nailed him. You know? Yeah. So I'm guessing somewhere along the line. It got up and somebody goes way. What are we wasting time onto in that case that that's just my opinion? Because why would you settle for? You know, these guys also don't forget they got to do make suits the suit man was teasing by favorite part of this story clo- air, I like to call the clo- you don't get used the term clothe the air. Very often. We got the suit guy, we got a twenty four year old street hustler is trying to be he was trying to be like, you know, Jerry Maguire, we got you know, four coaches who are just try to make a couple extra bucks.

You know, you're not supposed to get fired from your job. You're not supposed to if it says contractually, but man, everyone is going to have a side hustle.
