But he warned the agency isn't the truth. Police. We don't have people sitting on social media trying to find things that look false. I've been wondering who did it. We go the other way. We look at the actor and then see what they're trying to spread. Uh, social media companies, though they can come at it in whatever way they want.

Fresh update on "senate judiciary committee" discussed on The Joe Piscopo Morning
"Our was great to see you last week and always awesome to have you with us on the air, my friend. Great to be with you. Joe, give it to his break us down to that subpoenas are starting to fly, Joe. We chatted about this briefly, and are there going to be just subpoenas isn't a lot of talk. Or we gonna actually see indictments in regard to the Mueller probe and everything that's going that's going, Brennan. I'm hearing Glennon. Brendan Clapper, Comey! Joe, What's going on? Well, we subpoenaed from the Senate Judiciary Committee, by Lindsey Graham are of absolutely no significance whatsoever. If it's going to be public testimony, the result will be The five minute questions by individual senators, with Democrats criticizing everything that's going on. Nothing will be accomplished if subpoenas, however, are for depositions in private. They will get a lot done because then there's unlimited questioning by the Republicans and Republican lawyers. So I expect very little from the Lindsey Graham hearings if they are public with regard to And his investigation. It's pretty obvious that with screaming and yelling that's going on coming from Brennan constantly from Berlin on believing a true embarrassment to the intelligence community. John Brennan with I think bar is Somewhere in the vicinity of some additional indictment. Whether or not he's going to issue an interim report to the public to explain some of the shenanigans is an open question. The bar has indicated there will be something before the election so uncounted on that, But again, I'm not counting on anything from Lindsey Graham and those folks because It's a little too little too late. I don't understand why it's taking them so long to get to this point. It's actually quite embarrassment to watch how he and the Republicans have managed the investigation. Very, very embarrassing. Joe diGenova speaking the truth, I feel in the same way and I swear to goodness, Joe, everyone listening out business and why won't they just and the Democrats they got mean down, Joe. Then the dame's got mean down and they're good at mean. They come after they say impeachment. They're gonna peach. It makes no sense at all. They still get it. They get the impeachment. Which wouldn't know, But But why couldn't the Republicans just just really joining force because what was happening? What's happening? You're telling me that when Lindsey Graham that's will be this will be like a this would be public. And then it's just gonna be one of those ridiculous back and forth on television that we're gonna have to watch the difference of public hearing. It will be useless. They'll be sent some phony dramatic moments, but nothing Of substance will be accomplished. I think that what we have to realize is the anti trump focus inside the Republican Party while called Lion was speaker of the House. It was a powerful weapon against the president of the United States. All Ryan prevented the issuance of subpoenas. When Republicans room controlled the house, he would not allow subpoenas for Obama administration officials. He would not allow legitimate investigations to proceed when he left enjoying Fox Corporation that he took with him an anti trump bias, which is now reflected in the Fox. Coverage of the president of the United States. We saw what happened in New Gingrich the other day on when they cut him off when he was trying to discuss a very legitimate issue of George Soreness is incredible effort to destroy local prosecutions by election 27 sorrows prosecutors around the country. Who are now the nuts, responsive people ever to walk the face of the Earth in law enforcement, But But this is about Republicans. Even though the Democrats are vicious. They know howto wheel power. He only care about power. That's what this is all about in the House and the Senate for Democrats. The problem is Republicans did not fight well. There was only one Republican and then a few Republicans in the House and Senate, but the real Republican who fought like hell with Donald Trump he never gave up. He never gave in. He had very little help from people in the Republican Party, and he had people against him like Paul Line, Paul Ryan was an embarrassment to the Republican Party. He's happy as a clam. He's got his goatee and his beard and he's making millions working. Fox Corporation What a pathetic guy! Yeah, well taken and well spoken Joe diGenova with Piscopo at 7 33 it help me out here if you would, sir, because I look to you Aske kind of really a mentor of this programme and leading us down the path. You know to what is right and what is really just propaganda. The president's speech yesterday at the National Archives, I thought it was a monumental I thought it was one of his best speeches I love when he's reserved. I love with these quote unquote presidential it, but of the content of the content of the speech was was riven E. It really was to instil in Americans. America's classrooms, the the history of the United States of America. How sad it Joe diGenova that we have to have a president to actually say that, but it's true. Well, Dick trying to take the history away, Joe Well, that not only are they trying to they have succeeded. Remember? This is 50 to 60 years of education influenced by the left wing. Of labor organizations in the teacher's unions and very bad public education designed to discredit America, not uplift the American people educate. Remember, we stopped taking civics. In school, and we substituted a bunch of other nonsense about gender studies and ray studies and all the other stuff we purposely avoided. Talking about America and its history, both good and bad. Nobody says it has to be a nothing. A good news story about America. But teaching the story of America is no other country in the world has ever accomplished with America has accomplished for the rest of the world. No other country has spilled its blood for people in other countries and didn't ask to take over those countries when the war was over. Amen. No treasure from those countries and people have to understand this. This was a purposeful program designed by the teachers unions of this country to undermine the concept of America and substitute for a left wing agenda. Which is basically subversive of everything that the president talked about yesterday involving the Constitution in the history of America. This is a great country because we believed in each other. We took people from all over the world. And what did we do? We taught them English. We talking civics. We taught them the Constitution and it was E Clovis Union Union out of many one, and now with the teacher's union and people on the left in this country, one is out of many. Many. We don't want one. They want a kind of sick diversity that destroyed America. People better start. Fighting back. They'd better go to their schools were better find out the kind of garbage that's being taught in place of civics. Because this is the future of America. This is they had destroyed young minds. For two generations and paid no price for whatsoever. A man.

Rep. Matt Gaetz files criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
"Facebook, and I'll have to admit I have a dog in the fight. In this case, we have a Facebook page. It's a number of years old. It's got quite a number of followers to it. Not as many as the big Hollywood celebrities, but Listen, I'm glad for every single one and we didn't buy one of them some people by their followers. I don't If people want to follow my Facebook page, that's fine. I think we put up good content there. But I do have a beef because Facebook has on occasion either Shut us down and not for anything that was untoward. Many times. They just say we don't know why it shut down. Your site just doesn't work. But there's a reason that conservatives do not trust Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg, I think broke the law when he told Congress that his company is politically neutral. Gateway Pundit Reports of Congress and Matt Gates today filed a criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. And why what crime did he commit? You lied to Congress under oath that is a federal crime gate cited Project Veritas undercover investigation that found two brave whistleblowers. And he sent a letter off to the US Attorney General Bill Bar, his press really said during a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce Committee. Mr Zuckerberg repeated that's the head of Facebook, Of course, Mark Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied that his company engaged in bias. Against conservative speech, persons policies or politics. He also denied Facebook censored and suppressed content that was supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives. In June of 2020 project Veritas published the results of an undercover investigation featuring two whistleblowers who worked his Facebook. Content moderators revealing that the overwhelming majority of content filtered by Facebook's A I artificial intelligence program was content in support of President Donald Trump. So in other words, they were filtering out pro trump content. They also filtered out content related to Republican candidates for office or conservatism in general oversight is an essential part of Congress's constitutional authority. I think that Mark Zuckerberg knows exactly what they're talking about. And if it is the CEO of Facebook, he doesn't know all he needs to do is call in the people in charge of content, moderation and say, Is there a pattern to what we are excluding? And is there a pattern to what we're including if he didn't do that before he went to talk to Congress? Then he did it deliberately. You know, if you know that you're going to talk to Congress and you say, what are they going to ask me about? Well, they're going to ask me about conservative content filtering. Great. I'm going to call in the heads of those various departments and I'm gonna ask him straight out. Are you filtering Mohr Conservative content. If you are, I need to know And if we are, then we need to either justified or Corrected one of the other if he kept himself deliberately ignorant of the facts of things going on inside his own company. That's not an excuse to lie to Congress. And maybe maybe this criminal referral will actually get his attention. By the way, I got this e

COVID-19 is pushing notaries into the digital age
"To create wills online for quite some time but the thing is that after you create a will you probably have to get it. Notarized and that is usually an in-person transaction recent years lots of states have made laws to allow digital motorization and the cove in nineteen outbreak has pushed more states to do the same as more and more people are making wills online one of those people is Meghan Bowen about six weeks ago. She was home in Reno Nevada when she started to feel sick. I started to get a fever and a headache shortness of breath and thought. Oh no what if I have this? She's forty five with two kids. Who are both teenagers? She's divorced and she just never gotten around to creating a will or medical directive is enough to make me go wow. I'm not being very responsible for my kids. Future need to clean this up so and called Nicole. Harvey an attorney. Based in Reno who specializes in estate. Planning Nevada. Had a stay at home order in place and Harvey's office was closed so for the first time in my practice we're doing electronic wills which entails remote notary. Nevada is one of twenty three states that have permanent online motorization laws. In place. Notaries in those states use an online platform validate clients identity by comparing their face on video. Chat to their photo ideas. And asking a series of questions like you'd see a credit check. One question might be zero are five addresses which one of these or you associated with in nineteen sixty eight. That's Bill Anderson Vice President of government affairs at the National Notary Association. A trade group then the lawyer the clients and the notary all meet on video the client signs the documents with mouse clicks. Everything's recorded the online notary platform. Say It's just as secure as an in person transaction so it's easy in those twenty three states. The other states are rushing out solutions. Many of the state executive orders put in place temporary procedures for being able to notarize documents using video conference type solutions like Zoom. Another twenty three states. Now let notaries do their jobs using a combination of video and document sharing Anderson says these emergency versions are a little less secure. But it's still something and the Senate Judiciary Committee is considering a bill that would allow online notification. One downside remote motorization costs more because of platform an extra licensing fees. The National Notary Association says the National Average is twenty five dollars to get something notarized online in person services top out more like fifteen bucks but doing everything on.

Safety or surveillance: drones and the COVID-19 pandemic
"Police departments in the. Us have started using drones as a way to try to deal with the Kobe. Nineteen crisis in California Florida and new. Jersey officials have used drones to get messages to homeless communities or warn people to stay apart and respect social distancing but some drone companies are making even bigger claims that they can remotely detect fever for example or use facial recognition to see if. Someone's wearing a mask. And those kinds of claims have civil rights groups concerned Ryan. Kahlo is a professor of law at the University of Washington who studies emerging tech and policy. He said it's good. That people are thinking creatively but I think that the use of a drone is going to make people feel uncomfortable. The place I really think is problematic is trying to us. Drone technology coupled with artificial intelligence to try to figure out if people are far enough away from one another or to try to figure out whether people are sick while it might be technically lawful if you have the right license to do it to use drones to keep people apart that it contributes to an already anxious environment. It can be a distraction and especially. I wouldn't take it to surveillance when you say drums that claim they can tell if people are sick. Is this the the thing where companies claim? They're drones can sense. The body temperature of people they're hovering over. There's no shortage of people out there selling technical snake oil at any time. These systems have already been deployed in places like grocery stores and airports. And what these devices are. Detecting is unlikely really to correlate for for what you're what you're looking for and is likely to lead to many false positives and negatives again you already have a group of people who are who are anxious who are concerned and then to to put some inscrutable flying robot in the mix just strikes me as profoundly unwise however even if it's not drowned we do seem to be seeing a steady march toward surveillance. How much are you worried that? This is going to be an excuse to implement all kinds of surveillance. I'm very worried I mean so. So it's interesting because there are a number of efforts to try to create an APP that you can just download on your phone. That's supposed to keep you safe and that the idea would be if I knew if you went near anybody that had tested positive for virus you get a Ping and that somehow this is going to be a tool that can get us out of our houses and without risking infection so either you might be reassured that there's no instance of Corona virus in your community when in fact there is or conversely. You might be cowering at home because every couple of days you get a ping telling you you need to self quarantine and so. I think that there's a big difference between using TAC as part of the solution and falling back on tech solution them. However you gotta think that the ladder is an opportunity for tech companies who have come out in force and said we have A. We have an APP for that. We have a a camera. We haven't artificial intelligence algorithm that can more accurately predict the movements of the crowds. Should we ignore all of that? Or are you saying they're some of that could be good but we gotta be careful. I think that some set of companies are looking to their own data and asking questions. Like how can we be useful? So for example Kenza. Which is that thermometer. that's connected. That purports to tell you where there is a spike in fevers. Your they WANNA be useful with that data according to the testimony of their CEO. At a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that I also testified at. They want to be useful with that data and it could be a tool it has. It has some problems in some perils but then conversely you have situations where it seems at least to me personally that companies are just responding to social pressure especially from the White House to do something. You're innovative. You have all this data you have all this attention of the public. Do something and that. These companies are doing whatever they can to discharge their obligation and to and to get rid of the pressure to do something without actually confronting any of the hard problems. And so I think both are going on right. Even sometimes within the same company the mobility reports that Google was doing we're useful but conversely when Google teamed up with Apple to create a framework or an API for contact tracing APPs. They really did kick a lot of the hard issues down down the road and they created an architecture that might be privacy friendly being that it is decentralized but doesn't solve a lot of the hard problems that trying to use. Apps to automate contact tracing create. I think both you know I think. Sometimes companies are legitimately trying to look at the data. Say how we can help. Other companies are trying to do something so that they look like they're doing something and still others are selling snake oil that whole ecosystem is out there.

This bill to protect children may also put your privacy at risk
"Alford. You've got a nice explainer on the earn it act and you've got to break this down for me because it is extremely dense first off. What does the earn it? Act Propose yet you're right. It is extremely dense. But what the heck is proposing is basically making Tech Company's earned section to thirty protections now section. Two thirty is a part of the Communications Decency Act in Nineteen Ninety six basically protect platforms from being sued or content. That's posted on their own. So if I'm a restaurant and somebody needs a bad review on yelp. I can't sue YELP for that. I would have to sue the person that actually posted that. So it's a big part of what allows Forms to grow and also what allows for three expression on why So that is what they're proposing there saying. You have to follow these standards to protecting children online or you do not at this protection. That would basically keep your website alive and that is. That's a deal breaker for tech companies. Right if you don't have section two thirty protection you're basically just it's open game terms of lawsuits. They basically companies could not function without production. Right if you think about it like thinking about how many posts are on facebook a day and I. I think there's something along. The lines of like one billion hours of video is being watched on Youtube every day. Now think about like how many lawsuits could comfort that. And there's a very good chance it could lose these lawsuits end. They which shut down like immediately. Or if you're like a new website like looking to start out and you know you all of us are liable for all of this because you don't meet the standards Yeah it's not really much of a guideline or best practices so much as it is basically. If you don't do this you're done so let's take us through. What are those guidelines? What exactly is the government? Proposing in this instance the guidelines are not established by this bill guidelines are going to be established by mission Established by this bill where the three of the members are the heads of the Justice Department the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Homeland Security. That is where the issue really comes in for a lot of privacy insecurity experts because the Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department has spent many years basically trying to get rid of end to end decryption saying that it prevents them from catch criminals. It prevents them from being able to solve investigations. And you know in the past the just had this at the FBI mover encryption for terrorists and then before that they were saying you know drug dealers are using this online and we can't like catch like these drug kingpins because that those arguments clearly didn't work because you know we're still afforded encryption and technically he's not really into those pressures but now with the earn it act. The idea is going at this from the angle of child exploitation which is a much harder political angle to fight against right. Legislators can go out there and say no I actually support you know our children online. Yeah that that's that's what fascinated me is because there there's a different goal and the goal is not as never outright stated right. It's ultimately what they WANNA do is is to insert a back door into facebook apple various systems. But it's never outright ever said and interesting like the press conferences that have been scheduled. The public statements of May have all been about a exploitation of children online. And how to prevent that? And it's it's interesting the way it spawned because you're right politically you can't be on the other side of that argument right. It just doesn't make any like you can never win that argument by saying yeah. I'm I'm for that but just as work right. Yeah and I think that's kind of why. So many tech policy experts have been looking at this thinking. It'll actually does have a pretty good chance of getting momentum on Capitol Hill and I think you're right to point out the security risks at privacy risk here because like encryption is what protects your communications not only from being viewed by people who have stolen your phone or potential hackers but also government regimes and the idea that the government has been trying to propose is. They can't do these investigations when things are encrypted and they want waffle acts as which is basically. Give us a specialty. That only police officers or only investigators can use to messages. But that that's kind of fall short when you look at all. The government ater leaks. That have happened in cybersecurity. Tools have been stolen from the NSA and the CIA where these are were also tools. That were only meant to be used by the government and have been used five militias hackers because right when the government says trust us. We'll we'll make this will michigan this back door safe and only use by us. It's hard to buy. The argument given there have been a lot of examples. Where that's that hasn't been the case right. Yeah and that. That's definitely the biggest argument against Lawful access I had a hearing about this December where Apple At basically told Congress look like we can't make a key just for the good guys like that's not how that works so it'll be interesting to see where this goes on Capitol Hill. There's definitely a lot of noise about it from privacy and security advocates. But also you know there. There are organizations like the National Center for missing exploited. Children backing this bill and like seven out of the ten senators. That are backing this. Bill are on the Senate Judiciary Committee which will be having a hearing on this tomorrow. It's important to note. This is not a Parson issue. There are there are senators and representatives on both sides both parties. That's what this bill. I believe it's four. Republicans and six Democrats that are sponsoring bill right so it was a rare instance where we have these parties. Who agree on an issue. I guess what's interesting to me is I mean beyond beyond the spinning. It's interesting that they're taking this tack now because you know I think back in two thousand sixteen we we we saw this before apple versus the FBI were. There was a big battle there. Fbi wanted some sort of way to get into the iphone apple refuses really kind of when it crystallized apple's kind of big pitch on security and privacy as a featured in its products and clearly in the court of public opinion the the need for security and encryption for the services kind of one out. So that's why it's interesting to me that they're taking this different tack than really going after making this an issue about protecting children as opposed to getting getting you know having backdoor access for the good guys quote. We started seeing that angle Around the time. Facebook said that they were GONNA start encrypting. Their Messaging Services says facebook is responsible for reporting about sixteen point eight million Cases back in two thousand eighteen to The National Center for Missing Exploited Children. So the idea was that if you're going to encrypt these messages. That is a big way. That child predators get in touch with kids in groom them into you know meeting them later on and things like that and if you're encrypting these messages as you're not going to be getting these kinds of signals you're not stop. These pedophile is using FACEBOOK MESSENGER. So that is around the time when? I saw this guy you front and this new angle the Justice Department and I think the fallacy surrounding that from what tech policy experts have told me is that yes. It's true that facebook gives like eighteen like sixteen or eighteen million reports per year. But the difference would be that. Not much of that is actually enforced. So there's like they'll give them these reports but like this center is not like law enforcement agents a they. Just give the COPS AFTER. It's very like it's not clear. How much of that is actually acted on? There was a New York. Times report about you. Know faced with not being able to handle all of these These chat exploitation posts or ramping up like a severe amount and how much they reported. But I think I think the problem still comes down to the federal government doesn't have the funding or resources te actually tackle that so even if you know they provided a back door ear or follow these guidelines. Whatever they might be. I think it still boils down to the question of this actually protect children and you know unless you have investigators and resources that can actually use that kind of

Mr. Trump said in a statement that the updated investigation which comes in response to sexual misconduct allegations must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week the decision marks a reversal for the administration, which had argued that cavenaugh has already been vetted. It's been an incredible day. We are going to get the very latest break down a little bit with KCBS political reporter dyke sovereign. It was quite a morning in the Senate Judiciary committee today. Yes, it was.

They did vote to send this nomination to the Senate floor eleven to ten but with. The caveat that there'd be another week of an FBI investigation supplemental investigation. And now the procedures been followed today and President Trump has indeed ordered that. So the FBI will reopen. They'll do a supplemental check they'll get it done as quickly as they can they have a week to finish. Doug is often the case in the wake of a blockbuster move like this you hear two very different spins on what this might mean. For those at the center of it. And certainly in this case that would be judged cavenaugh, the the conventional wisdom would be that that extra week allows for more in-depth digging and things that could come out and so forth, which would be bad for him. Some pundits are suggesting though that if only it nothing comes out nothing new comes out in two weeks time that Republicans have lost all cover for denying his confirmation.
