Garland confirmation is a stage for 4 of GOP's 2024 hopefuls
"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the
New antitrust legislation would check the power of tech giants
"Arguably the biggest problem with big tech. Is you know the bigness. A few giant companies gobble up their competition owned the digital advertising and web hosting markets control the information ecosystem and sometimes control the distribution of their own competition so far though these worries haven't led to regulation now democratic senator amy klobuchar who leads the senate subcommittee on antitrust introduced a bill intended to check the power of tech. Giant's it focuses mostly on acquisitions to prevent huge companies from buying potential competitors and it would force companies that control more fifty percent of a single market to prove that an acquisition would not reduce competition. Here's senator club shar. We all know that misinformation has been rampant on social media and it is greatly. Set us back. But there's another much more insidious problem and that is that any company that was starting to come and do cool things got bought and i think maybe you could look at this legislation as basically a reply to mark zuckerberg's email when he said about they're looking at what's happened instagram. These businesses are nascent but the networks established. The brands are already meaningful. And get this. And if they grow to a large scale they could be very disruptive to us. Google has ninety percent market share. Right now they are literally taking on a government of a major country in australia when the prime minister says hey we're gonna start making you guys pay for content and they say back. No you're not we're going to withdraw from your market and you'll have no search engine and a big part of this.

You cannot take on the biggest companies. The world has ever known trillion dollar companies with bandaids and duct tape. And that's why senator grassley has join me on a portion of this bill to up the fees on megamerger so we can put in over one hundred million dollars to each agency so they can actually do their job and this isn't just about tech. There's only to cat food. Companies that control most of the market. There's only two online travel agencies. You think you're getting all their choices. Go look at. Who owns them.

"Top story. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin expected to hold a call later today to discuss fiscal stimulus packages after Pelosi set a deadline of tomorrow to get a deal done before the election. What's really hard to see Part of the reason, especially with a bill of this magnitude, they have to get an agreement. First, they have to agree to a legislative text. Members of Congress and the Senate have to process this and understand what's in the piece of legislation getting this done in just two weeks plus time. I mean, that is still a heavy lift, but you still have a lot of Democrats in the House of Representatives, pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to get a deal. The secretary of the Treasury, Stephen Yushin, is travelling in the Middle East, But Mnuchin and Pelosi are still expected to speak. Pelosi told House Democrats over the weekend that some of the administration's proposals are quote unacceptable when it comes to testing and tracing. She took particular issue with how the administration would contact trace in communities of color. That's Fox's Chan program on Capitol Hill.

State Department watchdog was investigating arms sales; Pompeo denies retaliation
"The State Department's Inspector General. I thought to be fired for investigating. The Secretary of State for assigning personal tasks to a department staffer also was investigating the approval of arms sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval officials from different congressional committees told NBC News. They believe Inspector General. Steve Clinic was fired in part for investigating Saudi arms sales that Congress had previously rejected house foreign affairs. Committee member Eliot Engel of New York. Confirm that investigation by late Monday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding a more complete explanation for Lennox firing according to the hill. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican of Iowa sent a letter to the president on Monday. Senator Grassley reminded president trump. The law requires detailed explanations for dismissing departmental watchdog to ensure that inspectors. General are not removed for political reasons. President Trump said the claims the secretary of state potentially misuse of government resources are overblown and seeing to consider them acceptable. Even if they are true look he's a high quality person. Mike is very high quality Zuri brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walk in washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader. Then have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid you know stupid. That sounds to the world unbelievable head to wash dishes because his wife wasn't there. The president also confirmed Monday. That secretary of State pompeo requested the dismissal of idealistic but did not directly address the issue of retaliation. President isn't there. At least an appearance of a conflict of interest of secretary. Pompeo is asking you to fire inspector. General's I don't I don't think so. I think maybe he thinks he's being treated unfairly again. He wanted to. He asked me if that would be possible. I said I'll do that. Your I think it should have been done a long time ago. Frankly and this is a man that has had some controversy. This inspector general but So again I don't know anything. I haven't even read much about him. I see that it's a little bit of a story not much of a story. 'cause everybody agrees that. I have the absolute right to fire. The Inspector General's secretary pay later dismissed the idea that his requests for the firing was in retaliation for links investigations into arms deals. And those errands saying quote. Because I simply don't know I'm not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations and final draft form. Twenty four hours forty eight hours before the is prepared to release them. So it's simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation end of story says Secretary Pompeo the State Department's under-secretary for management told the Post that concern over linen had grown because of a quote pattern of unauthorized disclosures. Leaks to the news media about investigations. That were an early draft form. He added officials had no evidence. Linac was personally responsible for the leak so Casey Hud. There's a lot to unpack there. Let's go back to the arm sale though this was a year ago in. May when the president and secretary pompeo declared an emergency bypassing congress to sell about eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it drew condemnation by the way from Republicans not just from Democrats but there was bipartisan. Condemnation of this move and now it appears that inspector general was looking into that declaration of emergency. Yes that's what. Nbc News learned late yesterday when Chairman Angle confirmed that this investigation was going on that they were angry that essentially he had the president and Pompeo tried to circumvent Congress on this arm sales question this was something that there are a lot of. Republicans as you point out who are very invested in what was going on in that particular situation. And who opposed this move by the administration but let's not forget to put the firing of this inspector general in to kind of the broader context in pattern that we're seeing going on here. This is not the first time something like this has happened and the administration has already ignored the rules that they are supposed to follow when something like this happens in the case of Michael Atkinson in the intelligence community by not explaining to Congress within thirty days why they did it and so I think there's a question here as to whether the administration will do it in the case of the State Department. This has been something that has drawn as you pointed out. Bipartisan condemnation chuck. Grassley though senator from Iowa has been particularly focused on this but the reality is Congress's relatively toothless in this regard they can make these demands asking for more information but the laws are not necessarily written in a position. That's strong enough to let them make a real difference here. And what we're left with is kind of a government that is increasingly. Not being held accountable. Now how that lines up with the president's campaign promise to drain the swamp I will let our viewers decide but they seem to be at odds. Donald Trump talked about how incredibly stupid thing sounded at his press conference. And I agree Casey. I want you to listen to this clip. One more time and let's focus on the part where Donald Trump says that he doesn't want Mike Palm. Oh doing dishes if his wife isn't there take a look. Look he's a high quality person. Mike is a very high quality his brilliant guy and now I have you tell me about dog walking washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid stupid. That sounds to the world. Unbelievable quoting the president of the United States to you know Mr President how stupid that sounds to the world that in twenty twenty you say he needs State Department officials to washes dishes in case his wife. Isn't there

I mean that's just one of the many trade discussions, but certainly came for agriculture and for your district as well. Yeah. Probably after talking about the, the flooding and the terribly wet condition that are our growers, and producers are facing all over the state of Illinois, and especially in my part of the state in the northwestern region. It is a trade is the next thing that comes up, and obviously, a lot of interest on the US MCA, which is, you know, that NAFTA to point out, whatever you wanna call it and the interest in having a sense, say about that. But the other thing is the fact that we are literally in the middle of a trade war with our biggest agricultural trading partners, and it a it is a big concern, not just at the present time. But what it can do long-term as far as China finding trading partners with Brazil Argentina, and I mean, I have deep concern about what's going to happen, and literally. Lost.

"On a new proposal Senator Grassley of Iowa to raise to seventy two. Yeah. Because this is going back to when they started social security, and all that in the nineteen thirties and back, then the idea was that very few people would live to collect it. Where do you stand on the vitamin thing? I guess I have a problem with CNN seventy two seventy year old man out, digging a debt. I understand that. I, I think you should make a midlife career age and switch from ditch sticking to hip hop. And so you just up upstages seventy two given all the hip hope booths or whatever but. I think forty five to fifty years of being a productive member society should be plenty. Yeah. Yeah. But they'd been his the his the thing is that retirement is an invention of the Molder neighbor. Tony, and the problem is that because before you basically when you talk about ditch digging. That's good. An example as any, the idea was in something in my state New Hampshire, that you kid and then around thirteen you became an you become an adult and then you walk and then you die, there was no such thing as retirement. There was basically being a kid working death. And now we've extended childhood so that people go people who shouldn't be at universities. Yohan do six and a half years of some wealth Lewis bachelor's degree in friends tend to studies that they don't even finish. So they like kind of getting on to twenty eight twenty nine approaching middle age before they even start work and then. I expect to spend the last third of that of the adult life in a retirement where you golf, and you got and see Tony danza indentify or whatever, and that economic model is not sustainable and. There's not enough people. And if you'll model of the forty five to fifty ditch digger was correct. That would be very valid. But we have a we, we are in danger of compressing, the active working period of life. That's one reason why people say, they, we need immigrants to come and do the jobs Americans won't do basically, because all the people who would be doing those jobs doing a little bit of seasonal advocates are lay to put themselves through college. You can't do that. When college costs, a six figure sum. So, so we have we have to rethink about this and, and e, whether it's extended delaying the start of retirement, all old, bringing full with the start of productive contribution to society. We do have to correct the structural defect. Toning. Well, thank you. One quick point. Go. Go ahead. Tony. No. I just said, thank you for your time. No, no. Thank you. Thank you.

U.S. Farmers Have Multiple Concerns When It Comes To Trade Talks
"US and Chinese negotiators will meet in Washington for talks about the trade war. Now, the stakes are high for everyone. But especially for farmers government data shows that income levels for farmers. Have recently been dropping Republican Senator Chuck Grassley represents Iowa that's a state. That's deeply dependent on agriculture. Grassley himself is from a farming family that grows sway beans and corn. I asked him if his constituents are worried, and he said, the farmers that he's talking to are worried about things beyond just their bottom lines. You don't want to think of farmers only thinking about their own products being sold to China. Farmers know that China's stealing our intellectual property. Our trade says grits, if you want to do business in China, you gotta do it the way they want you to do it. And that's give them or your technology. The farmers know that they're manipulating their currency. As Senator we've spoken to many farmers on morning edition who have told us that their bottom line is being hit hard by the trade war that they are losing tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of dollars. Their concern isn't intellectual property at this point their concern. He's making a living. What do you say to them? Their concern is intellectual property because there's an awful lot of intellectual property goes into the creation of the surplus that we do the government, though has acknowledged that this trade war is hurting farmers. In fact, last year, the government offered farmers bailout money to the tune of twelve billion dollars you as you said you'd apply for it. Did you end up applying? Yeah, I got it on a thirty acres. Soybeans. But I don't know how much money I got. But you're entitled to know if you wanna find out that means that you are far must have been at risk. You must have felt that you were losing money because of the trade war, otherwise you wouldn't have applied for federal bailout money, no participate in every government program. That's available because it's been considered in my generation. Remember, I'm eighty five years old that farmers stick together and participating in the farm program is one way of showing your in the same boat as everybody else's. We talked to a soybean farmer in Ohio, Chris Gibbs about the bailout program. He took the money as well. Here's what he had to say about it twelve billion dollars pumped in agriculture. That's great. But that's only a one time fix early tax payers not going to continue to do that. Why would they for a policy? That's inflicted pain. Byron government onto agriculture NASA. Tariffs he is not that impressed by. This bailout. What do you say to a guy like Chris cubes are Warren impressed by it? And I sat in meetings with ten or twelve other senators a couple of times over the course of the last eighteen months, and we told the president. We don't want aid. We want markets, and we want trade not aid and so- farmers feel the same way that person from Ohio fields. But on the other hand, I can tell you a lot of farmers that said to me, it's hurting us temporarily, but the president's doing the right thing because you lay can't let the Chinese screw us on international trade where we have six hundred billion dollar deficit. It seemed as if the United States and China were really making progress on these trade talks, and then President Trump tweeted this weekend that he plans to impose new high tariffs on Chinese goods. He is affected. -ly upping the ante right now ahead of trade talks that a y. Is move a based upon what I have found out from the executive branch of government from two different sources when our team went to China, we could go they got over there, and they found out that the Chinese had negotiated to a certain level. They got the tex- for that negotiation. And it went way back from where they thought we had brought them to the we can't make the same mistake with China. This time that we made in twenty eleven when we thought we had an agreement with Chinese and they didn't carry it out. So it's time I think to strike a very strong enforceable deal. So that farmers even non-farmers can get the certainty that they need. What is your message for each side here? And what do you think is it stake? If these talks break down what I would say is everybody benefits from. Freer trade. I'd say to China you joined the WTO, and you're in your into an organization that has to live by the rules of trade. Yarn living by him by not enforcing. Let's say intellectual property. I'd say to the United States we ought to be set in the pattern for the rest of the world on trade because that's what we have done since World War Two and Senator to the farmer who says, look, I don't care about intellectual property. I've got a small farm relatively small farm. I just need to make a living. I need to eat. I need to not lose money. Would you tell them? Hold on very definitely if this is all successful. And I know today that's a big if but if this is all successful, not only is that farmer going to be better off. But the entire world is going to be better off because free trade has proven itself with the reduction of. Global poverty with the enhancement of the middle class worldwide. And if this is not successful, if it's not successful will continue to go on and try to accomplish what we can in ways other than China. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you, very much goodbye. All right NPR's chief economics. Correspondent Scott Horsely? Was listening into the senators interview, Scott what stood out to you there? Noel, I was just in Senator Grassi's home state of Iowa over the weekend and farmers. There have really suffered a series of gut punches not only low crop prices, and then the trade war. But now they're dealing with historic flooding. Farmers are resilient and like a lot of Americans. They do want to see changes in China's behavior, but they are carrying a heavy load in this trade fight. Chris Gibbs who spoke with earlier this week talked about soybean prices dropping by three dollars a bushel that twelve billion dollar government aid package pays at most a dollar sixty five. A bushel. And that's for farmers who qualify a lot of crops get less than that and Noel, it's not just China in this trade war Trump's withdrawal. From a big Asia. Pacific trade deal is hurting beef farmers who are trying to do business in Japan, dairy, farmers in Wisconsin. And elsewhere in the midwest are hurting because Mexico is not buying as much of our cheese anymore. Senator Grassley himself has complained about the president's tariffs on steel and aluminum America has the world's most productive agriculture. But the president's trade policies have given farmers a tough row to hoe. NPR's chief economics correspondent, Scott Horsely. Thanks got. You're welcome.

"Your expectation for your first state of the union is a member of congress? Do you see value in this ritual? I do I am ready tonight to be open and hope to hear from the president's putting fear and division aside and talking about issues that the American people care about, you know, the folks that I represent in Iowa's first district one of the number one things. I heard is they were tired of the chaos in the division of Washington DC. So tonight, I hope the president puts that aside and talks about issues that show up in a big way for my district in for Americans across the country, as you probably already know after a few weeks on Capitol Hill, the devil is always in the details and the president's supporters say Democrats your party, this y'all hate Trump even more than you want to get stuff done. The Democrats will try to block him no matter. What can you get specific with me and point to one issue where you think your party should commit to working with the president? Absolutely. And that's infrastructure. It's something that he talked a lot about while. He was campaigning. But we never saw movement on it. You know, the joke was his first years at every week was supposed to be infrastructure, and it was a big theme of his state of the union last year. No comprehensive movement. Yes. And so what changes now with a divided congress that makes it more likely? Well, you know, I'm happy that I'm actually sitting on the transportation and infrastructure committee. You know, I know I have Senator Grassley and Senator Ernst representing my state as well. And they hear it as well as I do from our constituents that this needs to be a priority. And I am hopeful we can actually work together on these.

"That doesn't exist yet. Which is the midnight of February fifteenth. And so they're they're doing this conference committee is headed to anticipate, I guess a Bill we needed, you know, before we know whether the president's on board or not. I have never seen a congress committee done before you have a house and Senate Bill, and then disagreement, and I think that's probably the Congress's way of trying to talk about border security before it happens, and that's going to be the subject, I think you might be taking testimony. That doesn't mean it by any stretch imagination. They're gonna solve it. I don't think it's I don't think they're going to be able to just. Salt with the president. So I'm anticipating cater going to do another Bill, and they're gonna say here's what we're gonna do on border security, which will not be what the president wants. No. And this has been a tough month for the president because. Okay. So the government reopens he gets no credit. No love no high fives. No, nothing for it. Nancy Pelosi and all these polls is winning and it's two up and two down for Donald Trump. If we were playing a wild hand of cards, and you noticed it I noticed it drudges banner today. If people went to to drudge his website said wall dinner, it was a there was a picture of Donald Trump in pretty much. This is house being portrayed. Right. Right. Drudge. You know, of course, other conservative people have been hitting the president and Coulter then the president was actually attacking some of them back. But. It still was a rough month and. All over the place. They're saying what he came. He did this. And then, of course, add, you know, the fact that there's a bipartisan move by Senator Grassley included is a big deal on the Republican side to make a report of public on. The president is not even issue yet. It shows that internally the president got a lot of problems with his own party. So I don't think it was very good month. And then Roger stone. You know is there's a raid on Roger stone, which is you know, sort of the last piece of the puzzle. I guess you'd call it. So it's it's a tough months for the president. Yeah. What.

"Foreigner who puts adopted together. He's got an incredible bias against the president so much. So that he said he was desperate to stop Trump. Does fax the FBI knew the top people. The Justice department knew before the election more importantly before the October twenty first date when they took the application to the court and portrayed the dossier. Something essential to get that warrant so that to me is too often contradicts. What? Now chairmanship of the intelligence committee said he said in his memo last year. Oh, no, no, no. The FBI the top people at the at the Justice department didn't know about Bruce Orion does Keith exit. I just prior to the election in prior to the FIS applications. It's not true. Just not true. So what should congressman Schiff do here? Because it sounds like he's lying is he lying and should he be out for a front correcting the record here? I don't know. But what I know is what was in the memo was not accurate. Yeah. What was in the memo said that Bruce or our top people at the FBI didn't know what we know based on the deposition. We have with Bruce oars he told them because he told us under oath in his deposition that he told them those key those three key facts. Fusion is connected to the Clinton using it fired his wife and his also the entities are hired. Christopher Steele in Christopher Steele had this defy against the price. So if they misrepresented this in front of a judge four times where are the judges on this? Why are they not calling for some quiet? I don't know. No, one of the other facts, they tried to hide from us last year, we discovered that in the course of our investigation is the fact that Peter Struck key player in this whole thing. Former? The relationship was a friend with one of the five judges. They tried to hide that fact from I don't know how the judges feel my guest is not real good. Based on the fact that they weren't given the full truth. The full the full story when the applications were brought in front of him. Now, what's your relationship at the the house intelligence committee like with the Senate intelligence committee? What does that in terms of just giving them information because Republicans are in control there, and they can do more on that side? Yeah. Well, we're going to work closely with Senator Graham who is now the new chair of the shirts we worked with over. The course of the last congress. I thought Senator Grassley did a great job as chair of the judiciary committee. We will we want to continue working good working relationship. But Senator grant that we expect that I talked with me last week on the phone about some of these some of these issues, so we'll continue that kind of relationship, and then of course, work closely with with Devin Nunes, former former chair of the of the house intelligence committee. Now, there was also there was a moment last year in September where the president had to order it the feds to declassify all of these documents. And then all of a sudden everything was put on hold because of the concerns of Great Britain, Australia. We've heard about those things. Are you familiar with the status of any of that? And how how interesting revelatory will those documents be one when they're finally no haven't seen him. But we think they're going to be very interesting and very revealing. If you remember we had called for this to be released in September of last year the following week. The president said that he was going to do just that. And then later we decided to hold for for some length of time that we're still at that time. So we will see that's obviously the president's called. But we think all the different needs to give out. You can get the American people and the American people can know exactly what happened 'cause never forget the basics here. The top people coming. Mccain Baker, the chief counsel Lisa page, and Peter Struck all five of those key people the top people have either been fired or demoted and then left the FBI. And then never forget the dossier is critical and keyed all the Clinton campaign paid Perkins. QE law firm who? Hired fusion GPS the Whitton hard to foreign Christopher Steele who talked to Russian even though he never went to Russia to talk to some Russians put together this National Enquirer garbage thing called the dossier, which became the basis. Yes. For going to court to get warrants to spy on the other campaign, the Trump campaign as long as they give you know, what a day to talk about this too. Because remember all of the outrage throughout throughout the years that the F B I spider, Martin Luther King. And here we are talking about today that the FBI and it's at its upper echelons created a basis in a rationale to spy on an opposing political party. Boy, we have some problems defects. Yeah. As long as it gets an don't forget what happened over the weekend. The special counsel did something I've never seen before where they went public. Instead, the BuzzFeed story about Cohen was not accurate we ever seen that we've never seen the top five people at any agency where they've been fired or demoted and then had to resign. We've never seen that happy for. We've never seen a special counsel to come forward and say a media. A report that whole mainstream press was running with is not accurate. We can all kinds of things that we'd never thought we would see in this country all because they took this dossier. That was not proven what salacious and unverified. According to games, call me and use it as a basis to to go after the other campaign, and we're still living with all the divisions that created congressman Jim Jordan. Thank you.

U.S. court orders Trump administration to fully reinstate DACA program
"Sovereign jetty White House reporter for the daily caller with. All the news but you need to know from coming out of the White House. And Capitol Hill I'm Mary Walter and I'm here. With bids colonies so good morning happy as always to be joining this morning by Joe digenova legal analyst and pharmacy is turning to the, district of Columbia, Joe. Good morning. Sir good morning glad to have you. Back on Friday the big news coming out that a judge John Bates US District Judge John Bates has now barred the Trump administration from ending DACA and saying that they need to fully restore the deferred action for. Childhood arrivals program that's that that program put in. Place by President Obama that allows young illegal immigrants Or they were, young at one point. To stay. In the United States without punishment how, is it exactly and and the judge says that. The Trump administration failed in its rationale for why it was changing it back. Why does it need to provide a rationale of this is an executive action to begin with well actually it. Doesn't make a confession here John I'm a John Bates the chief of my civil. Division when I was US attorney and then recommended. Him for a US district court judge John is is a good man but in this case he happens to be deadly wrong let's remember, this is this, beautifully. Named deferred. Action for childhood arrivals that's what docket. Stands for this is the goofy name that President Obama thought up to violate the law out of whole cloth he created an illegal program with a right to stay President Trump becomes president and says okay well that. Executive order by President Obama is a legal unconstitutional ongoing rescinded he's already said that Publicly that is sufficient reason the is simply wrong this notion this is something that the. Judge and two other. Judges just don't wanna do they don't want to take responsibility for making these children quote unquote leave the country. This is another outrageous example of judicial overreach he said that the reasons given by the president? Or, arbitrary and capricious my answer to that. Is. Nonsense get yourself a dictionary judge Joe why why does the constitutionally constitutionality and legality of this action even matter like let's pretend it. Was all fine and on the up. And up wouldn't it be well within the president's rights. To remove, a program put in place by the same branch of. Government yes it it it. Is within his the is simply wrong you know this is this is under the rubric of these. These old cases from the nineteen seventies by liberal judges that wants a right has been, created, by, the government in order to take it away you have to have. Some over arching justification This is the corruption of judicial overreach and how it has infected our. Public policy the fundamental rule here is the president who, follows, another, president can rescind. The executive orders of the previous president that. He's black letter constitutional law and the fact that federal judges refused to. Recognize it shows why it's important to get Brett Cavanaugh, on, the. Supreme? Court could everything is going to have to work its way to? The supreme court and that's part of what what's going on on the, left is that they're just delaying delaying delaying the marvelous game the left cannot win through elections so it winds through? The, courts regrettably. This is a Republican judge John Bates he's. A nice, guy but he's just dead wrong let's talk about another judge Dana sabroto a. US district judge who said that the Trump administration is responsible for finding immigrant parents who were deported and chose to. Leave their children here or who were release East into the US for whatever reason without their children how is. This the administration's responsibility if the parents chose to leave their children here in wouldn't take them with them this is another example of, incomprehensible judicial conduct I'm not quite sure what it's gonna take to sort of get federal judges back into the role that the constitution. Gives them which is relatively limited one had like five or six federal judges. Basically running the government telling the president of the United States that he can't do things that he was elected to. Do that is absolutely absurd it. Is a kind of judicial autonomy that. Has gotten out of control. There is. No justification for what, that judge did and yet. It continues this is going to happen until we get. A full smackdown from the supreme court on the substance of each issue which is whether or not the president has already and then secondarily these nationwide Guide injunctions the. Judges issue from one little court? In podunk that's all gotta stop and the supreme court has to address that the. FBI has released some documents related to Christopher. Steele move onto him he's the the guy who compiled the Trump dossier the the one is filled with all sorts of half, truths and and skeptical. Information of in terms of how credulous we should be about it Christopher Steele FBI documents heavily heavily redacted we can find out almost no information this is almost this. Is almost a joke. Right well what we know now is that this is this is no. Longer even open to question notwithstanding the lunatics on, CNN MSNBC and the. New York Times and the Washington Post there was the plot a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton and to frame Donald Trump it's real simple stop it it's not. Even open to, question anymore The Steele dossier is basically, unverified garbage none of it has ever been verified I keep hearing John Brennan and others say oh. Some of it's been verified but they never quite say. What ended has been. Verified and the reason is they can't what's really interesting is it after Steele was fired by the FBI for violating. Their rules as a confidential informant they actually continue to use him by having him report directly to Bruce Moore who was out of the deputies office under Obama in the Justice department and then. Bruce or acted steals, mouthpiece going back. To the f. b. i. and giving. Them the same type of bad intelligence and, the?

Wants to make public, the bureau is refusing by the way keep your eyes and ears. Open over the, next week. Or two or a little bit more More there's going to be more stuff on five it's going to be fascinating it's going to get very ugly for Christopher Wray and rod Rosenstein. As evidence continues to mount that they are withholding information from congress and the public merely. Because they don't want to embarrass the, bureau or their predecessors at the department of Justice very interesting we will be looking for that Jaysekulow has come out and said that if Muller subpoenas the president they're gonna fight. Them all. The way to the supreme court But yet doesn't is fine the face, of what Rudy. Giuliani has been out saying to the last week or so well I think you're seeing a little good cop bad cop here I don't expect, the president to agree to any. Interview by Muller given the incredible illegitimacy of Muller's investigation the manner in which it's, been conducted the people who were conducting it. I think that the president is. Under no constitutional obligation in a case like this. Where he is not accused of a crime he is not a vital witness. There is no evidence that he has any information the special counsel has not provided to the president. In any of his letters any evidence that he thinks the president possesses which. Can get from no one else under existing law the. President is generally quote not. Available because he's very busy in this situation I think the, president will win any fight over subpoena I think Muller knows that and I think if, he were, going to, issue a subpoena he would've issued a long long Time ago. He doesn't want to issue it subpoenaed. Yeah I mean the president's in Bedminster a lotta time to think about whether, or not he actually wants. To do this we'll see what the outcome of that is Joe digenova thank you very. Much, really appreciate it as always seven fifteen now, wwl.
