What are your thoughts like.

Senate intelligence report warns of repeat of Russian interference in US election
"Week, the Senate Intelligence Committee released its final report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. A detailed significant contacts between the Trump campaign and people with ties to Russian intelligence. Former campaign manager Paul Manafort was especially singled out as a grave counterintelligence threat. More on the Senate report will speak to Olivia Beavers, congressional reporter at the Hill. There's really build on our knowledge from other investigations and incense become public, which is the House intelligence investigation and the special counsel's investigation. It was made public last year now. Some of the main points there really caught our attention for those of us who have been following this closely is just a great detail and how they hae. These extensive communications between Russia and members of the Trump campaign, and one of the names that really stood out was Paul Manafort and Home. Manafort, they said was in constant communication with someone means Kalinic and they went further than the special counsel and described clinic as a Russian intelligence officer. So basically, they were saying that Manafort was willing to share a polling data he was helping with Russian oligarchs. Efforts to spread information overseas in different countries and He was also possibly interacting consulate with this as they describe it, Intelligence officer who might have had an involvement in the DNC hack in 2016, so it really kind of Through Manafort and these Russian government linked individuals much closer than I think. We had previously known another report with regards to Paul Manafort, they said, because he was so willing to share some of that data that he was a grave counterintelligence threat. Although they didn't go a Sfar saying he actually quote unquote colluded. With anybody that was never really determined. But just because of his dealing with this guy that they now deemed a Russian intelligence officer. He was a big threat that way and a lot of what they also talk about is that Russia Saw all these vulnerabilities in the trump transition team. They saw them as an experienced, disorganized unprepared and they were ready to exploit all of that. That really stood out as well. They were saying, you just touched on. They basically saw an opportunity that you had all these inexperienced business officials working on the transition team. And they decided to take advantage of that. And they did that through reaching out to people who didn't have these kind of foreign affairs backgrounds was understanding how Russia works, and it wasn't just Russia. It was other countries. They said. Allies and businesses, but basically you had During the transition. You have a new president coming in. And you have all these outsiders rushing kind of embedded themselves to a point where they have access and that was A point that this report was trying to make is that this is not a thing that is safe for our intelligence purposes, and we should be more careful about going

Russia worked to help Trump in 2016 election: Senate panel
"Million documents. Hundreds of witness interviews and the consensus from Democrats and Republicans in the Senate Intelligence Committee is that Russia aggressively tried to influence 2016 presidential campaign, and the Trump campaign was happy to accept Russian help, they said. So in 1000 page report this week, the committee also reportedly made criminal referrals to federal prosecutors believe in a number of people have lied or maid. Contradictory statements to investigators were going to turn now to Justin. Rude. He's a former congressional investigator now director of the project on Government Oversight. Thanks so much for being with us good to be with you. According to officials who spoke with the Times, The Washington Post NBC News the intelligence Committee Told the Department of Justice that Steve Bannon, Erik Prince Sam Clovis Alternate Associates appeared to have made false statements to the committee and that Donald Trump Jr and Jared Kushner had made statements that were contradicted by other testimony. How often does a congressional committee make a referral like that? But they're not common, but I would say they're not infrequent. It's hard to say for sure, because sometimes these pearls are made publicly. Sometimes they're made privately. These obviously we've made privately so it's hard to have AH, clear accounts, but it's not uncommon, especially at the end of a lengthy investigation like this one toe have examples of Witnesses say you feel may have not have been fully forthcoming on there's a matter almost house. You need to refer that to Department of justice and ask them to look look into a little further. Would you have any concern based on what we do know now that the Justice Department is ignoring Congress or slowing down the process? This is not a normal year. That is not a normal administration for sure make that difficult to see inside a black box of the situation like this. Certainly there are concerns from politicization of the Department of Justice. But I would also say that historically speaking when Congress makes with pearls to the Department of Justice for anything but particularly around obstruction, or or false statements, types of concerns If the figures of the subjects of those girls are connected to the administration administration officials regardless of whether they're Democratic Republican, the Department of Justice rarely takes those cases up frequently. These were for Those are much more successful if they target a private individual. Well, what a tradition. Why don't they traditionally picked them up old fashioned politics? It's hard to convince the Department of Justice to go after a member of their own administration on DH while I think false statements, serious charge, and certainly any federal investigator would tell you get in. I think there are people have gone to prison for lying to Congress, right? Oh, absolutely, and in recent history as well, So I think that we should probably point to that evidence as well. You got Michael Cohen, who pled guilty to a charge of lying to Congress. He had Roger Stone, who was convicted of making false statements now, But those were coming through the Mueller team. The special prosecutor's team and these referrals are going to the U. S Attorney's office here in D. C. Which I think has a little bit of a body a record. I think Congress just heard from members that office in June. I believe about interns around politicization there. In the cases of Michael Flynn and Excuse me and Roger Stone sentencing. So, so it's tough to read whether or not it's going to move forward. I would say that while the Department of Justice don't get these referrals from Congress from committees from members because it's just a letter anyone any member of Congress or the Mini can write one of these letters. I think they tend Give credence to these work world become, as this one does from the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is to say first that's being made on a bipartisan basis by the by the chair and vice chair of the committee is coming at the end of an extensive and detailed investigation. That's just one person's opinion. Kind of popping off. They you assume have AH, decent. Body of records to refer to and the third one is they didn't publicly They didn't try to politicize it so that I think a lot of watches gives credence in some real gravity. Well, thanks very much for being with us. Justin Road, directs the Congressional Oversight Initiative at the project on Government Oversight. We're very grateful for your time. Thank you, sir. For having me At

When you the least favorite child, you get left out of all the family traditions, even the criminal ones basically, this Senate investigation found that the trump campaign's contacts, with Russia, during the two thousand, sixteen election posed a threat to national security, and the interesting thing about this report is that it's bipartisan with policies agree on the facts but. Each party came to a different conclusion about whether the facts meant that there was no collusion. And I will say it's always weird to see the same set of facts that are interpreted that differently it kind of reminds me of how two different guys will have different stories about how they fight went down you'll.

would conclude there's a difference between all out war and a declaration of war in various battlefield activity or battles or attacks are incidents as a practical matter when you read the constitution got a look at the language what did the framers me and apply common sense not radical libertarian ideology nobody ever asks these men about a battlefield situation and how this would work the fact of the matter in its best days Congress can barely function I would say to Rampolla my friend Mike Lee you can even oversee the bureaucracy in the federal government you can even get taxes under control you can't even get the border under control you can get yourselves under control nobody is stopping oversight nobody stopping debates that's all they do is talk you want to debate around go ahead and debate around you want to have hearings on Iran going to have hearings around I would love to know how many hearings are a bit on a run and Hezbollah and so money and his activities in the last twelve months by all the relevant committees of Congress I'd love to know I'd love to know how many times rand Paul and my friend Mike Lee have brought it out I brought it up outside the context that we need to negotiate with the enemy president trump has been actually very very suspect in the use of his commander in chief powers he suspect of war that's his nature that's his believe system but he is not going to embrace the Bernie Sanders ideology or the Mike Lee excuse me or the I. rand Paul ideology or the Bronco bomb ideology he's not going to a top there doctor their doctrine of America last he's not going to do it and when an embassy is attacked if United States senators whether they be radical libertarians are radical leftists or whatever you call them are not going to get behind the commander in chief and pretend that Alexander Hamilton what out of a problem with which is a lie a line then you have to say thank god there in the Senate and they're not present in the United States I pointed to Washington I could point to Jefferson all the earliest presidents highpoint federalist papers are crucially important keep in mind Hamilton wasn't there throughout the constitutional convention that's okay Jefferson wasn't there at all he was in France that's okay but Washington once and some of the other they did not make the speaker of the house the commander in chief they did not make the gang of eight the commanders in chief jointly and it is the job of the commander in chief to protect this nation to protect our embassies in to protect the military of rand Paul and Mike Lee and Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi kind husband the votes to withdraw from Iran then do it excuse me withdraw from Iraq in the Middle East then do it it happened at the end of the Vietnam War they did it then you can do it do it you can cut off all money to this to our military operations our diplomatic operations in the year ago hadn't done nobody stopping you but the point is they can't they don't have the votes so they want to point to a president that has a doctrine that's nothing like the bush or Obama doctrines who does not enjoy exercising military power but well if necessary they want to point to him as violating the constitution really Rampolla my friend Mike Lee the constitution is not a libertarian document it is what it is if you're a real constitutional you interpret what it says based on what was intended back then you don't overlay a radical libertarian approach to it the framers were just as concerned about a road to radical Congress's they were a road to radical presidency or judiciary declare war think about this as a practical matter if we declare war on Iran we have no options doing it's all out war we send our B. fifty two in stock bombers over there and plaster the place that's what the radical libertarians would cost either that or a complete withdrawal from the area because any American soldier with a foot in that territory could be viewed as a provocation this is the problem with the ideologues I am a conservative because I believe in our founding principles I'm not a libertarian I'm not a Marxist even though I've libertarian views when it comes to the economy and so what but when you interpret the constitution you don't take sides it is what it is if you're trying to have integrity in interpreting the president did is absolutely fine as a matter of constitutional law statutory law in our tradition I'll be right back then ladies.

"The Senate intelligence committee, and they're Cepeda Donald Trump junior with norm Ornstein resin scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and as that break intervened on the half hour. I think your last words were eight hundred prosecutors something that affects continue so eight hundred former prosecutors, including large numbers of Republicans those appointed by Republican presidents and governors, including former independent counsels and some of whom had gone after Bill Clinton said in their letter. And I'll quote each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described special counsel, Robert Muller's report would in the case of any other president not covered by the office of legal counsel policy against indicting sitting president results in multiple felony charges for obstruction of Justice. It any particular ones just curious. So we get our our hands around this. And and in particular why I if in fact, it is such terrible behavior. Why? Robert Muller was proscribed from from proceeding. Robert Muller goes by the book and defined his role narrowly. And he basically he said something that was not reported accurately by attorney general bar, but what he said was I started with the premise that because of current Justice department policy, which is not law or constitution. Just the policy that indicting sitting president or calling for the indictment of a sitting president is not something that we do. He left it open for indictments after Trump leaves the presidency, and he left it open to the attorney general bar to draw different conclusion, which of course, bar did not do. Well, yeah. All right now, we'll take some more calls at this point for people who have been waiting for a while. And starting with the timid Pittsburgh. Good evening. Tim. Good evening, Jim. Thank you. I wanted to talk about something else. But what your guest said before the last week was flat out lie flat out? And y you may have a difference of opinion. Yes. Isa Donald Trump sire Thome each quote unquote has stopped being investigations and going forward that is, you know, high school debates would know that that was a destruction. And at that point moulder what hadn't even been on the point yet. But he listed several reasons he said that was among the reasons to Kosice him privately several times. To that. He wasn't being investigated. And he refused to state that publicly. He also fire me because he was. Of Rosenstein recommending that as well as body on Jeff Sessions from the court and besides that only competence from the way he handled the Hillary Clinton. Email. Well, there was certainly a level of extreme incompetence than the statement that no reasonable prosecutor prosecuted Hillary Clinton that was obviously nonsense. You could have found scores. The prosecutors would have prosecuted Hillary Clinton, but to specifically what Tim had to say norm. So just looking at a number of news reports Trump said he was thinking of the Russia thing when he decided to fire FBI director James Comey that was reported by FOX at the time and by others when he said it to believe it was an NBC reporter. And you know, the Rosenstein thing he asked for a letter giving reasons to fire Komi and says publicly that the Russia thing was on his mind. You know, we can look beyond that I must say to the other. There were ten instances of which the mother report looked at obstruction of Justice. And why eight hundred prosecutors said flatly that he was guilty, or at least he would be charged through a number of felony counts. T one was the effort to get his counsel, Don Mcgann to fire Muller, and then tell them to give false reasons for doing it. He tried to get a message to attorney general sessions, not to recuse himself through Corey Lewandowski, and there were numerous instances in which Muller said that he tried to tamper with witnesses, including Manafort, including suggesting the prospect of pardons. So there's all kinds of stuff here that is at minimum, very seamy. Again, very CB. I'm concerned mostly I suppose with law violations. It sounds like we're getting into the realm of the Vulcan mind meld here in which we not only judge the president's actions. But we must do. So in the context of his motives. Yeah. And you know, what the eight hundred prosecutors said was there was ample evidence of corrupt intent well, again, how that necessarily proscribes the constitutional powers of the president. I guess we're new to me is not the constitutional power the president tampering. No witness tampering attempted witness tampering suggesting to your. Council that he falsified the reasons why you're asking him to go. And and insist Muller be fired those are constitutional responsibilities here Jim to Vincent or Vincent in cedar. Rapids, Iowa, good evening. Jim. Thank you for taking my call. So I like to know specifically from your guest, what is the crime that Trump allegedly committed? That's number one question number two thinking back. These particular situation with Donald Trump. These situation would come into play. If these what have happened doing our founding era bring seventeen eighty nine petition I want your your guest at tell me we want to our founding fathers support coup. Attempted to so looking at the with the reasons why eight hundred prosecutors have large numbers of them Republicans have said that he would be guilty of obstruction of Justice. That's the crime. We're talking about here at at the moment. And as I said earlier Muller didn't say no collusion sack. What Muller said was we're not using a standard of collusion here because that's not the legal standard, the legal standard is much higher one and that's conspiracy. And he didn't find a conspiracy. But whether there's a crime or not it is very clear that tried to obstruct Justice, even if it is for the purpose of avoiding embarrassment is has been used multiple times, including by prosecutors like Rudy Giuliani to bring cases. So we've got that. I would take this to another level though, Jim. And by the way, I would say. The framers the framers believed that there was a reason why they put impeachment into the constitution and talked about specifically about people who who could move into positions of influence as president as a cabinet member. As a judge who violated norms didn't behave the way they were supposed to. So there was that along with any questions of criminal activity of being committed. But I would take this to another level. Even put all of that aside what the president did during the campaign what's to openly. Welcome the Russians to be involved in the campaign. He said that he didn't see anything wrong with them being involved. Again, he has than a good portion of the Muller report is about trying to keep the Russians from influencing the course of our elections or in influencing America in other ways and cluding foment dissent. And division in the country. And you know, he right after all of this emerges. He initiates an hour plus private phone conversation with Ladimir Putin and doesn't even raise the question. A critical one that was brought up in the report about Russian involvement in American affairs. I find that troubling. I find it. Find it bad judgment. I'm not sure that I find it necessarily obstruction conspiracy or impeachable. But bad. Yes. Is putting very mildly. But again the. Greatest adversary to tilt elections and to foment division in the country. I find that more than bad judgment. Well, again, we'll we'll see what it is in the the standards of either the the constitutional requirements for impeachment or for presumably wherever this this current part of the probe leads more.
