Why you feel a need to do that? Well, you know for the same well for the same reason, we're worried about foreign influence in elections. We wanna make sure that. During lecture, I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal to big deal. Generation I grew up in which is the Vietnam war period. People were all concerned about spying on antiwar people and so forth by the government. And there are a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there's an adequate basis before before our law enforcement agencies get involved in polit political surveillance. I'm not suggesting that those rules were violated. But I think it's important to look at that. And I'm not just I'm not talking about the FBI, necessarily, but intelligence agencies, more broadly. So you're not you're not suggesting though that spine occurred. I don't well. You could I think there's a spying did occur. Yes. I think spying that occur. Dole.

"So he has reversed himself on some of some of these things that the Republicans in the Senate have managed to get him to back down. Let's turn to the other political legal battle this week. Attorney general Bill bar set off a firestorm when he testified that he believes US intelligence agencies spied on the president's 2016 campaigns, sparking short criticism from Democrats for using that charge term. I think there's a spine did occur. Yes. I think spying occur. Think what you said was absolutely true. There was absolutely spying into my campaign. I'll go step further. My opinion was illegal spying unprecedented. Spying. Barr. Also, testified that he plans to release an edited version of special counsel Robert Muller's report on Russia in President Trump's conduct within days. Many Democrats and some Republicans say the AG mush share the full report with congress and the American people and worried that he has too much say over the report. I am concerned by recent media reports that those working on the special counsel team believe your summary to congress glossed over the severity of the damaging actions of those in the White House, including the president the American people should be allowed to see the report in its entirety. So they can make their own judgments about its content Senator Shaheen reflected the view of many Democrats, Nancy when she seemed to be taken aback by the Terni general's position his used of the word spine. What has the attorney general's remark meant for the credibility of the department of Justice as we wait for this report? Well, the speaker of the house point blank said she does not trust the attorney general which in and of itself is pretty remarkable that you have the leader of the house saying she doesn't trust the top law enforcement officer of this country. This is very new relationship. He has only been in this position for a short time and his efforts and his. His aides efforts to sort of clean up or clarify what he meant have only left things more confusing and left some wondering whether he intended for there to be a lot of confusion a lot of murkiness over whether or not he thinks that his own department spied on a presidential campaign. I he said, yes, I do believe spying occurred. Then he said, well, I don't know if any spying occurred, but I just wanna just wanna be clear on that. And it's not like, I'm creating a team to look into it. But I am going to create a team to look into it. So no one on Capitol Hill really understands what it is that he believes there is an inspector general inside of the department of Justice already looking at the Feis accords and the surveillance from the two thousand sixteen campaign. Why do the attorney general get ahead of his own ide- any reporting on that? That's a really great question. And we actually asked Mitch McConnell yesterday when we sat down with him about those spying comments and asking him, don't you think this is kind of a loaded term? What was your? Reacting to it. And he said, look I'm going to defer to the inspector general report and let that play out. But there's no doubt that those comments have really made already. Let's amid what was already kind of this very partisan atmosphere that much more divisive. And I think that going back to the trust issue that you mentioned with Pelosi and something that Mitch McConnell said several times this week is that you either trust Bill bar, and you don't and he's absolutely right now he's in the camp where he does trust Bill bar. But he was also telling us that I am -ticipant without having seen what the mullahs report is going to be. He says I being completely satisfied with what the attorney general does. I believe. Yeah. I man tipping being satisfied with the level of disclosure that he makes and he's basically like you'll see my point next week. Once the report he hasn't seen the report either. So I mean, no matter when the report drops, you kind of already know where Democrats will be nowhere Republicans will be and it's not going to be any more closer to the same conclusion..

"Let's start with the president and the border says he might have to call up even more military. Yeah. I don't know if that's going to happen, Charlie. It's an interesting way to rattle cages among the Democrats. The president certainly has a case and Obama's former DHA secretary was backing up again this morning talking about just how bad it is. But Jay Johnson also stressed that he needs to get a bipartisan solution if he's going to get any progress. And I think if you talk about putting troops on the border. You're not gonna get any support from across the aisle. So I I'm not convinced on this one yet. I need more details. Okay. But based on the details that you have to fold necessary and Toronto cages. Yeah. I guess I would agree with that. We have a problem when and you have to make sure you put those those bodies where they're most needed. That's the issue. Are you are you putting your resources in the right place? I'm not sure the committee yesterday on Capitol Hill got what they wanted from the attorney general because they're ticked off again. Yeah. General bar who sounded a little like was it Jimmy two times when he said. Spine going on. He really got the the panel angry Senator Shaheen Jeanne Shaheen really said to him. You're sure about. Yeah. And he thought about it gave it consideration. But added something interesting at the end of his statement when he said, but we need to save. It was properly motivated if the Predication was there than the need to do that kind of investigation. So Nancy Pelosi says he's off the rails all the usual suspects are disowning William bar, the attorney general I don't I don't know if we're going to get any real answers on this. Because of the, you know, the big story the day with the assize thing. Because now the rope Trump in as well for people, they don't know what's going on. What is the Assange thing? Julian Assange, the guy who's been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for the last seven years, the founder of WikiLeaks who's been dumping documents. Secret documents that many say make him a. A spy and a guy who's put lives of intelligence agents. Endanger was finally arrested today the Ecuadorian to let the Brits come in and take him away. Now, he's got a warrant in Sweden. He's got warrants in England. And there isn't an indictment that we heard about last November that accidentally was leaked out. From the Mueller investigation was supposed to be redacted. So he's got an indictment pending and they'll probably be a request for extradition. But we don't aware we stand in line, you know, Sweden want some I that was a a sexual assault charge that he initially ran from. So there's a whole a whole lineup of charges against him. But we'll see what happens. I'm sure there's going to be all over the news today. I don't know exactly what this says about me. I've got some whatever an idea, but regardless of what's going on in the world you want to really capture. My attention. Catch my eye. Give me a story about farts. And you've got one today at the podcast. There is one today. Charlie there is a dietitian of big researcher. Who my buddy said the Cleveland Clinic say she's very credible. Who's put out a study that said if you've gotta let one fly and you hold it back. It eventually is going to come back up inside you and force its way out through your mouth. So if you really want to be healthy, just let them rip. Yeah. I can't attest of whether you know, I have no evidence as to whether that's true or not because I never hold them.

Logic is is a it's a piece of a God like quality God characteristic. The Lord gave us only one segment of a characteristic that is his and that is weaken logic things out.

Maybe they're just black holes with nothing around it because they've sucked everything into it. What was left in universe? And they're constantly pulling things in we're gonna wind up in one two. If you buy the stuff in the first place, but there's a picture of one. I stuck it up on Facebook. You can see it over on. What I think is that their English newspaper site have been Daily Mail. They've taken a distant picture of a huge galaxy in the middle is a black hole. Wow. Oh, no out of it. So that's what they say. It is again, you wanna see a picture of. I'd I was gonna say go toward the light. But I have to amend that go toward the dark the dark black hole. And by the way, if you get sucked into that Klay won't matter in lonely hurt for like, not even a nanosecond more because everything will be ripped apart. So fast rapidly. Probably even faster than the speed of light. We don't know because we'll never be over Guna major, but it won't hurt because nothing will be there to cause a pain anymore every single nerve ending. We'll turn into its most basic building blocks of which we don't know anything. Kind of a radio program is this. Anyway, you're probably asking yourself. But it's fascinating. Isn't it really is? Let's talk about again, you can see that black hole up on their own Xingtong on Facebook. If you don't find any place else. General William buyer dropped a bomb show on Wednesday. I I. I hate that term. I don't hate it as much as a hate other terms. Like, I hate the word kerfuffle, the worker Fussell should be outlawed done away with any one of those ones that they have in what call Will Smith has their Tommy Lee Jones were the men in black where they make your memory just go away. They should get kerfuffle out of every person on the planet. Attorney general William buyer dropped a bombshell, which I'm sure caused Fussell telling a group of senators that he believes spying against the Trump campaign did take place in two thousand sixteen. Oh, this is music to my ears. It was the first time to do you realize that says that means we're finally going to have somebody in the attorney general's position. It's gonna look back and say, hey, you know, let's look into what Qomi said, let's look into what Lynch let's look into what Susan Rice add Samantha Powers'. Let's just look at the FBI, for example. And see what do they do when they are? Initially said go to the Trump Tower and observe those people spying on them. Wow. Goes on spying on a political campaign. A big deal use the word spine. That's pretty heavy bar said this during an exchange exchange with the democrat Senator from the Hampshire. What's your name here Jeanne Shaheen Jeanne Shaheen member of the Senate appropriations committee seen act and a follow up whether bar believed the FBI spied on the Trump team? He says you're not suggesting though that spying occurred. This is seen. She's saying you're not suggesting though that spying occurred. Embar says I think spying did occur. Yeah. Yeah. But the question is whether it was predicated adequately adequately predicated. So in other words what he's saying? There is did somebody say go spy on Trump because we found be on the shot of a doubt where we think they've done something horrible broken a law, which would say, you know, with maybe bring bring Russia's and do something desperately. And that would definitely warrant check these people out. That's what the FBI does. But if there was no evidence to do that. Or if the evidence procured was based on a lie, then that would not be good. So Senator Shaheen you better get out of second period depends, baby. Yeah. He says I'm not suggesting it wasn't adequately predicated. But I do I need to explore. Yes. Bar suggested later in the hearing that he had information leading him to question. Whether the FBI conducted on authorized surveillance against the Trump campaign. I believe there is a basis for my concern. Not going to discuss it. Good for you bar. Now. There's more to this. I'm not gonna get into. This is just to let you know one that you can see a picture of a black hole, which has nothing to do with this piece. I just noted apprentice paper, but on the daily caller this is bar. I think spying did occur. Yup. And it was against the Trump campaign. This is good. And I'm I don't know about you. I'm convinced me on the shadow of a doubt that not only despite being a occur. I'm convinced that a straight up coup and collusion with the Hussein Obama administration. And of course, at that time the. FBI? Turney general's office. Colder an Loretta Lynch. There's no doubt in my mind. What they did was. They said we can't let Trump become president make that happen. Stood back and they'd come to him and say, well, we can do this do that. He said yet, go flirt doing. That's not work back. Then. Exactly how it works. They they will be caught if somebody will really pursue that start rolling people up with terrorizing them with like twenty five thirty years in jail start rat each other out.

"Jay this Jordan. We are taking your phone calls. Let's hear the attorney journalism words when he says, I believe that there was spying on the Trump campaign that the government spy the other campaign. You know, he's talking about his own agency. Now that he oversees FBI DOJ and there's potential wrongdoing there he wants to investigate that takes us. First question that led to is interesting the line of questioning from democrat who was trying to get him to back off, actually. So you don't, you know, listen closely, this Jeanne Shaheen, you don't really think there was spying ultimately gets that. But listen, how it started by fifteen news just broke today that you have a special team looking into why the FBI open an investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen elections. I wonder if you can share with this committee who's on that team why you felt the need to form that kind of a team and what you intend to be the scope of their investigation. I said my confirmation hearing by going to be reviewing Botha Genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during two thousand sixteen a lot has already been invented with a lot of this has already been investigated in the substantial portion of it has been investigated is being investigated by the office of inspector general as the department doesn't stop right. I mean, we know Harry from that that's in reference yesterday, the attorney general confirmed that the inspector general's report on Fiso abuse. So to get this to get to the unmasking had to have the warrants to survey. All we know that that was there because even an art loss at the we found the foia request filed we knew that the masking requests were put in for Trump transition officials. So that FIS that the FIS report will cover from the idea significant portion of this potential wrongdoing. Absolutely. And so in addition to all that you have suggested we should also keep in mind that a former attorney general Loretta Lynch, and James Clapper, basically changed the rules for the dissemination of raw signals intent in intelligence what at that. Do it made it more likely that people would be unmasked and be that the information would be leaked. We also know that Faisal warrants were issued that Susan Rice and Samantha power engaged. At least for news reports in unmasking, and we also have a raft of characters that include Andrew McCabe who was fired for lying James Komi who owed a higher loyalty to one thing. Only himself an of other actors so there is clearly a basis. For a sustained investigation. And we also know that in June of last year DOJ inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a report and among the key conclusions. Takeaways were that senior FBI officials connected to both the Russia counter intelligence investigation. And but Clinton Email investigation engaged in political bias, favoring one political candidate over another that provides a basis if you will predicate for political spine aimed at President Trump this indeed confirms would President Trump said more than two years ago that his campaign was the subject of wiretapping. So I think the evidence is certainly mounting up that there was something. The fairy is going on both the DOJ and the FBI and this call. All sports and investigation, which may or may not lead to criminal penalties for the actors involved. Let's go again continued the line of questioning so attornal Barca to say what he's doing here, gene. Gene keeps pushing what's between him. And a democrat Senator today this happened just our half ago. If you're live with us on the air bites his team, one of the things I wanna do is pulled together all the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the hill. And in the department and see if there any remaining questions to be addressed. And can you share with us? Why you feel a need to do that? Well, for the same reason, we're worried about foreign influence in elections. We wanna make sure that. During elect spying on a political campaign is a big deal to big deal. And this is where she said, wait spine. You don't you don't really think spying occur? Do listen by eighteen you're not suggesting that spine occurred. I don't well. I guess you could I think there's spying didn't occur. Yes. I think spying did occur. Let me question is whether it was predicated adequately predicated, and I'm not suggesting it wasn't adequately predicated. But I need to explore that. I think it's my obligation. What he says not taking for granted that taking anything happened before his tenure began, and she she she was expecting him to push back and say not necessarily or I don't want to go that far today. And instead he says the opposite. And this is again, this democrat Senator think she walked herself right into she. And he stuck it right in her face. So to speak. What happened? She has. The questions you wanted to know, you know, really mean that do you. And he says, well, yes, I think spine did occur. Oh my goodness. I should've asked the question bad. Prosecutor never ask a question that you don't know the answer to and which he did. And then of course, he as he should said, that's my thought, that's my belief. But the question is whether it was adequately predicated. Well, you know, that means was there a really good basis in law and fact to gauge in the spine now they made a big deal about spy and foreign influence in the mother report which exonerated the president in Thailand from any collusion. Let's now talk about some domestic spying. And that's what the attorney general is saying you wanted to talk about foreign spine. That's fine. And we did that. And we did that exhaustively. Now talk about some domestic spy, and I'm gonna look into that. Yeah. And again, we we've gotten we filed in this back in twenty seventeen in federal court, foia requests on the masking requests that were made by the Obama. Administration officials the very impressive Avas term twenty sixteen when they were requesting information Trump transition officials. So we know it continued to obviously this surveillance, and that it was widespread and the president, you know, he got mocked when he said my campaign is being wiretapping. Now, that's that's being confirmed. General confirmed that for you today? He just all he saying whether or not it was even you could make a case for being legally done. He confirmed for you today. That the Trump can't pay was being spied on by the US government case, the the FBI, and whether you want to talk about Carter page is being outlined figures and not really official. He he made a broad statement today. The Trump campaign was being spied on the only questions left is was it based on anything legal at all. Or is it all based on a phony dossier? How big of a deal in Washington DC, these subcommittee hearings on the budget usually on a big deal that everybody's paying really close attention to. And you get some new senators involved who are not the normal faces of the most contentious here is not the judiciary committee. So get some new senators involved in this back public back and forth. Maybe they don't know what they're back into because they're not used to that question being so public, and they're trying to put the attorney Joe these positions position the end up making news like this. Yeah. First of all, I think it was very big deal because it came from the attorney general I actually think that Senator Shaheen probably went into it fairly thoughtfully. I'm not. So sure that Senator Schatz did later he actually came back and tried to give the attorney general another opportunity to clarify, the attorney general essentially said, no, I meant exactly what I said. There was fine. There was another thri surveillance call it whatever you want. But the question is what was the motive and Jordan? I'll tell you this. I actually had a great sense of relief. And I think the American people will as well because we've been looking at this from the outside, and we have seen essentially three things we see something that looks like spine the surveillance of Carter page, we see that it looks like it was initiated by law enforcement officials that have a political agenda. Remember the insurance plan? Text in text message about we'll stop Donald Trump from being president. And we see them using knowingly bad information to do it Jordan. That's the dossier. We put all those things together. And we wonder why in the world the department of Justice is not admitting the bare. Facts that we see and looking into it. So then we see the attorney general admitting the facts on the ground and saying look, I am going to make sure that those kind of abuses don't happen again. I'm gonna find out who's responsible, and I'm going to root them out Jordan more than anything. There's a lot of political theater here. But more than anything. I'm just relieved that the bad actions that we've seen for a number of years. Now are finally coming to light I too I wanna go right to the well, actually, wait carry. We'll take your phone call. We come back.

"Anyway. Chairman buckling you mentioned healthcare. What are you hearing from people in your state about more progressive movement's at healthcare, you know, like Medicare for all something that voters want right now. Well, you know, I think that it is an issue that has come alive Senator Shaheen, you know, is a co-sponsor with Senator Sanders on his plan for Medicare for all. I think it's an issue that is moving forward. Obviously, we understand as long as Donald Trump or any other Republicans presidents never going to come to fruition. But the concept that. Healthcare should be parceled out to those who can afford into those who can't simply should go without is not acceptable to the Democratic Party. And as we find more and newer ways of making sure that people that are provided the healthcare that they need and that they are not financially devastated by receiving the healthcare that they need. Chairman. Both of you have close ties to the Clintons on Hillary Clinton's two thousand sixteen campaign, chairman Buckley, and then you go back to two bills. Huge win in New Hampshire back in nineteen ninety two would the Clintons Hillary or Bill. Be welcome in the state for general election campaign will they be doing rallies, or do you think that they would be welcomed within the broader Democratic Party to be a key surrogates for for the democratic nominee? I thought Troy would be answering. I, you know, the Clintons have had a very long relationship with the people of New Hampshire. I I met them in one thousand nine seventy nine when they came. And no person has spoken that more. Hampshire Democratic Party events than than Bill Clinton has over the last thirty plus years. So that's up to them to decide whether or not they wish to get on the campaign trail, I know they're very busy with the Clinton foundation, and the sort of historic work. They're doing in Puerto Rico in Africa and all across the globe and me price. Yeah. I think they would be definitely welcome here. You know, there's a strong network that secretary Clinton built when she ran for president in two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen Bill Clinton has a lot of strong ties to this day as well. And so again, it's up to them. As Ray said, it's up to them to decide whether they wish to do that. But I think that they would find people here who'd be very happy to see them. I told reporters we have two minutes left either. If you have a closing question for the chairman. Two to chairman Buckley who who's the most organized in New Hampshire and do the someone like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren have an advantage because they represent states that are so close by to New Hampshire. Well, past history would indicate that the two neighboring states would have a slight advantage. But when you've got a a group of individuals of thirty plus people running. Yeah, I'm not sure we can really look at past history. So I think it's really going to be a jump ball for anyone has the opportunity to win New Hampshire and Iowa. In fact, you have a closing question. Sharon price, basically the same question to you has anyone had the leg up early ground game yet. Well, so John Delaney's been on the ground here. Now for about eighteen months. He's got twenty staff on the ground. He's got six offices open now. So he's obviously got a start on the organizing side of it. But it's still very early in the process, and we're seeing every day new staff hires from these other from the other candidates that are getting into the race.

"But I think we are very well line, and we're very focused on exactly the challenge that you have outlined center. I look forward to hearing more about that in a closed setting general hotel on on February third President Trump announced that we would keep troops in Iraq to quote watch over. Iran has our military focus their shifted from ISIS to Iran. It has not Senator glad to hear that. I am concerned with the response in Iraq. As you probably know Iraqi, President Salih responded, very quickly saying that the president of the United States didn't ask Iraq about this. Are you at all concerned that Iraq will now be skeptical of our motivations for being there? And how will that perception affect our ability to relocate US troops from Syria to Iraq? Senator I am. But this is not particularly found. I think the the government of Iraq understands the relationship with a view that we have on on on Iran and understands our concerns with Iran and a variety of destabilizing activities, they conduct around the region. But having said that our mission our military mission on the ground remains, very focused on on the reason that the government of Iraq asked us to come there, and that is focusing on the defeat of ISIS, and now preventing the resurgence of that particular organization. Let me just a little bit too to Russia general vote no on January thirtieth Russia pledged to support Iraq in its fight against ISIS in preparation for the United States withdrawal from Syria. What's your current perception of Russian influence in Iraq? I think right now Russia has limited influence right now in Iraq. Do we have plans or strategy for for maintaining for countering that Russian influence once withdraw from serious complete? Why I don't have. I don't have any specific military tasks that are related to that Senator. But what I would highlight is that one of the most effective tools that we have is being good reliable partners on the ground. And that is that is what we intend to do. And that has always been our approach with the country country of Iraq focused on what they have asked us to do. And then being very reliable reliable partners to them. Jaren. I'm gonna yell my time. Thank you. Be chairman of centre, Scott, please. Thanks for all your hard work. Thank you. Thank you for your service. We met I met the other day with some opposition leaders from Syria, and while they express some concern about exactly how the which withdrawal would happen. They did ask if what the ability wouldn't be to do a no fly zone afterwards, which they thought would have a have a positive impact of keeping Turkey in place. Have you considered that it said doable? We again, we're we're looking at a variety of options that I'll be happy to talk about in a closed session right here. I would not characterize what we're looking at right now is a no fly zone. Right. What do you think why? Why do you believe Russia's continuing to to be involved in in Syria? What's their strategic advantage for them to be involved suggest to cause problems for us strategic interests? They have Russia does have some long term interests that they've had in Syria that go back some some ways, but certainly part of their motivation is by making sure they have warm water access into the Mediterranean, and the access of that provides they're interested in preserving that they're interested in preserving the regime that is friendly and supportive to their motives and interests. And I also believe that they they share an interest in trying to subvert our influence and interest in in the region and come commander general Joseph hotel do think they see that as an opportunity for them. And I think they are attempting to explain that. After President Trump made the announcement withdrawal. Have you seen Turkey take different action on the ground? Is there anything they're they're doing that causes you concern? I think. Sorry. I think we probably can talk a little bit more about that in a closed session. But I win general would I would tell you as we've seen all actors. Begin to posture themselves for what for what might come. And and we've seen that on all sides. I'm finished. Scott. We're not used to such subtle and penetrating questions. Thank you. Senator Jones on behalf the center nickel. Thank you. Senator reed. Thank you general for your service echo that. And also for all of the team that is behind you. Well aware that your success is only as good as the success of those that serve with you. And I use that term appropriately as opposed to the chain of command below you. They serve with you. And I appreciate all of the folks sitting behind you and all of those that are still over there. So Alabama democratic Senator Doug Jones, I wanna follow up briefly with. Kind of a question that Senator Shaheen ask about the CNN report of? Our military equipment somehow getting into the hands of others. But I want to come out of the a little bit different way. Last year. You stated that due to political considerations cost or delivery speed. Some of our partners are seeking alternate sources of military equipment from near peer competitors. Like Russia and China when our partners go. Elsewhere, it reduces our interoperatability and challenges our ability to incorporate their contributions into theater effort. I think it's critical that we allow our practices with what is necessary to chief these goals as you alluded to and we want our partners to to come to us. We're particularly concerned when they are going to communist, China communist Russia to get that. Because we're seeing around the world the influence of those countries. So my question is does this challenge persists persists today? And if so that you please talk a little bit more about those challenges or barriers that exist. Our partners coming us for a quick moment. And what steps do you believe we need to take in order to keep them coming to us rather than? Communist Russia and communist China center. Thank you. To to some extent, they do continue to exist today. I certainly recognize it our foreign military sales for military funding process must be delivered at one we should make very deliberate decisions about the things that we sell to people. And and that has to go through a process. I am concerned that the process is is lengthy and is not as responsive as our partners require on the ground. And so I am very much in support of trying to look at how we make those processes more more responsive to the needs that they have on the ground. I think we should always strive for that. We had there are a lot of steps that go through that we go through to provide equipment to people. Some of them are within the department of defense, some of them within department state, and certainly some over here in congress. And so to the extent that we can have a more rapid process to answer answer, the requirements of our partners. I think that would be beneficial in some cases, if we're not going to provide things to them, we should be very honest with them upfront and tell them we're not going to be. I think it's always better to give them a yes or no answer than it is to to string them along. Because I think that leads to more frustration for our partners. And it does cause them to go to other things. I also think key part of this is our work on the ground beforehand with with our partners. This is within the military here is making sure that the things that they that they are asking meet the needs of each of their countries in their own in their own defense and. We should try to steer them away from just buying things that they can't maintain. They can't sustain. They can't man long-term, and we should be focused on the equipment that they can and equipment that can be integrated with us and other partners in the region to provide a more formidable deterrent effect or a defense if needed. Thank you. Thank you, sir. So with regard to the Iran nuclear deal looks like we're out how will US withdraw from the Iran. Nuclear deal affect our posture. In the area of responsibility. I don't know that that the withdrawal from from the Iran deal will specifically impact impact our posture. Our posture will be more driven by the national defense strategy than won't be by a decision to. To the to the park from the from the JCP away. I would just add that is I look across the region. Iran is does does continue to present concerns to me it is it is one of the major it is the major destabilizing factor in the region. And so while the nuclear weapons program is one aspect of the threat that they presented their facilitation of ballistic missiles of unmanned aerial systems of other lethal materials to their proxies in Yemen in in Syria in Iraq, other places here, I think should give us very very significant 'cause they're continued efforts to exercise control over critical waterways. I think should give us a continued caused Iran continues to present threats to us. Across the region. And as we look at implementing the national defense strategy, and I agree with the focus on great power competition. My best advice, the backup through my chain of command will be to ensure that we do retain sufficient capabilities insufficient response capabilities to deal with the deal with the threats that remain in the Centcom area of responsibility. Right. Well, thank you started. Thank you very much. This is she's read radio programming from WCBS bay from Washington. Thank you on behalf of chairman and folically. Thank you very much. Thank you for being here. Thank you again for your service. I want to stay on that same topic about the national defense strategy and Iran, and and just explore some of the tensions that the national defense strategy creates for your area of operation. So can I just ask you in your judgment? Are we in a position to remove draw down forces move forces from your area of operation to Asia or Europe in accord with the national defense strategies priorities on great power competition with China and Russia in the position to do that. And also engage if necessary Iran should. Should that nation provoke a conflict with us? Or should they continue to excel further their uranium enrichment program the center, the national defense staticy necessarily puts focus on the United States, regaining its competitive advantage against great powers, Russia and China in this particular case, I agree with that. And and we are absolutely supportive of that from Centcom standpoint. And we do recognize that that will necessitate some change in our posture in the region, and as we kind of go through the discussions and the planning aspects of that with the joint staff with OS SD, and certainly with the services, we will we will we will seek to maintain the capabilities that we need to and then ensure that we have the right response capabilities to address threats as as as they present themselves in this area. Let me just ask you a little bit more about that. At the initial strategy calls for more efficient ways of operating in the greater Middle East. East in your area of operational authority the idea being again to maintain enabled us to maintain a focus on Iran and terrorists there and also to shift attention towards a great power conflict. Can you tell me about your plans to make operations in your area of responsibility, more efficient? What does what does that mean? What does that look like, can you give us a tangible sense of certainly certainly one of the one of the areas where we can continue to be more efficient is how we operate along. Our seems are bureaucratic combatant commander seems with me I share I share a boundary with you com- to the north. I share one with Africom to the west and with Indo Pakong to the east. So I think it is it is extraordinarily important as we look at managing resources that we look at positioning and employing these resources in a way that they can be of the maximum utility to multiple combatant commands and today, we actually do that with some of our some of our resources in in the region. You might be aware, for example, that Africom supports us with basing that we require for our activities, Arabian peninsula, and the ran the resources that we have their benefit both general Waldhauser and his command..

"A M U dot org before we continue our conversation and get to some more of your questions and thoughts you just heard us discussing James Foley yesterday. We had the honour of speaking to James's mother Diane here is part of our conversation. Diane Foley is the mother of James Foley. And the founder of the James w Foley legacy foundation. James Foley was a freelance journalist and humanitarian who was kidnapped and murdered by these lawmakers state back in two thousand fourteen. She joins us by phone from Boston where she is celebrating the birth of a new grandchild. Diane, congratulations and welcome to the program. Oh, thank you so much take us back to when you learned that your son had been kidnapped who did you talk to what did you say to them when you learned that he had been kidnapped? Well, we couldn't believe it me. He was kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day twenty twelve we had he banished. We had no idea where he was the only reason we knew he had been kidnapped was that a colleague had been waiting for him at the Turkish border, and he never showed up. And finally, his fixer was let loose and came was able to relate what had happened FBI within a couple of weeks came to visit us, and we were told that we shouldn't tell anybody about what had happened. So all Christmas the next thirty plus days, we didn't do anything. He didn't talk to anybody. Really? There was no trace of Jim. We had no idea who had kidnapped him and Waiheke wash. What were some of the other big? Hurdles, you ran up against in trying to fight. Find your son and get well, I guess the biggest hurdle. It was really no one's real John or mission to even be concerned or make sure or he was found brought home. We did have a FBI agent who knew nothing about situation. No Arabic had never been to the Middle East. Had no idea what he was doing. It was very frustrating and the FBI kept asking us for information. So we felt like we had no one to reach out to eventually. I started traveling to Washington, and I made appointments Senator Shaheen and Senator a awed at the time. From Mansur helped us connect with appropriate people at State Department and FBI to make appointments to go see them and talk to them. But again. And they could tell us nothing. And I could tell him was at the bottom of the furry long lists. He was just not a priority. Finally in the fall of twenty thirteen we received two sightings from other people who have been released from detention in northern Syria that they had heard Jim's name, and they thought they saw him and about a month after that we received an Email from the captors offering proof of life. And so that we would know they in fact had him now when the hijackers since you proof of life talk about that period, particularly whether you ever considered asking for negotiations or some kind of payment, I mean after you've been dealing with the federal government. I wonder if maybe you try to take things more on your own hands and. Just do whatever they want it. Well, once we knew Jim was alive, obviously, we will help and especially about a month later, the French were I Spanish came out in February of the next year twenty fourteen then the French, and then the Italian I mean, we were very helpful. They ask for an impossible ransom. Hundreds of millions of euro. And the FBI, you know, told me that just stalled them, don't worry. This is the beginning. And so we did that you know, we always reported back to FBI what they were saying, but FBI was not allowed to directly engage with the capture. So that fell to us totally as a family. So I'm sorry. We wait a minute. I I hate to interrupt you back up a second. You had to be the primary point of contact with the Islamic state. Absolutely. Oh, absolutely. Lutely serious. Was awful. Because I mean, it initially came to our oldest son, Michael. And so Michael would share with us, and then we would share them with the FBI and this other a security team, but we had to impact engage with you asked about us trying to consider getting a ransom ourselves or whatever we never considered it in early twenty fourteen. We are still trusting the government they seem to be. They always caring. It's not that they didn't act hearing. It's just that nothing ever progressed even with the release of the other hostages, it became obvious. Even went to France into Spain with my brother-in-law trying to talk to the governments and whatever. But it the our government was just obviously never really seriously engaged in terms of it goes to get them out. So it took us until oh this spring late spring of two. Two thousand fourteen we became very concerned and decided it was time to try to at least get some pledges for ransom. And then of course, two weeks before was killed. We're told threatened he would be killed. And I was in Paris at the time trying to get more leads than how and was a clue clueless. I was hopeful that maybe we would offer what we had accumulated. We had about a million dollars in pledges, and they at that point had decided that they would Jim was more valuable to be publicly murdered instead of they weren't interested in ransom at that point. About a couple of months after Jim was killed. I met with President Obama briefly. And he tried to tell me Jim was the highest priority. But I told them in with all due respect, he knew that wasn't true. When he agreed and apologized. I can only imagine when you after all of this when you met the president there must have been part of you. And maybe you were very charitable about it. But there must have been part of you that wanted to rip his head off for the way that you were treated with your swell. I was just I was just appalled as an American. If only we'd been told the truth that they could not do anything about Jim if we had known from the beginning that we were on our own that would have made a different Shosh. But instead we will let along that the government was doing everything possible and Jim was their highest priority. Which was never the case. It was never the case. If they had told you from the start we cannot help you what might you have done differently. Well, what there are security firms that we could have hired we could have sold their house and actually hired one of these experts security terms. Who do this all the time for corporations who have businessman who is taking captive somewhere in the world? I mean, we would have taken a very different tack. I, you know, wasted so much time going to Washington finally before I let you go. How are you doing as a mother? I'm sure you still miss James quite a bit. Oh, well, our grandson is named Braddock James he lives within us any challenges me every day to make sure that other families will not go through what we get. And that is why we advocate frost entice for Princeton student Wang, eleven cents family, so many other families. Jeff would key. You know, there are so many families that are our private hell told to be quiet about their horrible ordeal. That we seek to support and help. So we want to make. The return of our Americans who are unjustly detained or kidnapped a true national priority to bring them home. Diane Foley is the mother of James Foley in the founder of the James w fully legacy foundation. Diane, we really appreciate your time. Thanks for talking to us. I so appreciate yours..

"These agencies have requirements which are mandatory, which they'll fulfil, but it won't be enough to stop the threat that we have coming from the Russians and certainly the people who were magnifying the Russian message in the on the right wing side by listening to what Donald Trump has to say that being said, Trump himself appears with his statements a week or so ago about the Democrats being the ones who might be in collusion with Russia. I got the impression he was almost asking Russia to interfere on that level the same way he did last year almost this time last year with the Russia. If you're listening statement, I am in great. I have grave fears about what's going to happen in the run-up to this election, and I hope that I'm wrong. Well, you know, and tha that very point Malcolm, we've already had Jason now we know of to democratic United States senators who've been already targeted. We had Claire mccaskill already come out admit. She was one of the three lawmakers that were targeted, have already been targeted by Russian bad actors. You'd have Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, and this is from the Daily Beast on Monday the mystery stink targets you a Senator for Russian sanctions. Jeanne Shaheen was contacted through our staff last November, but an individual who said he worked for the foreign ministry of Latvia a tiny Baltic nation, supportive of efforts to rein in Russian aggression demands that he was trying to set up a phone call between the Senator and edgar's pink. It's the Latvian foreign minister. The purpose of the meeting. He said, an Email was to discuss prolongation of anti Russian sanctions in general security with Persky laborat- in the Kaspersky laboratory case. And let's listen to Senator Shaheen on Tuesday talking about what else has been going on in her in her among our staff. We had some phishing attempts by staff in our office, and we've turned those over to Senate security who have done a good job. I think we also had a request for a meeting that turned out to be bogus. And again, fortunately we checked on with the embassy of Latvia, which was the country that was being impersonated and they explained to us that they didn't have anyone trying to meet with me. So. It is a reminder that people need to be vigilant and now the former intelligence officer, if the Russians the United States intelligence agencies have already said, they did it. So everyone knows they did it the fact that it's still being done and it's still being targeted only at Democrats. I mean, what does that tell you about whether or not Russia is at all deterred Russia's? Not deterred. Russia has never been deterred. They put a man into the White House. Let's just say that bluntly here. Okay. They now have a working partner in the president of the United States. He is covering for their activities and that the national security established and had to come out and do a cover your butt. You know, a press conference just before this shows the ineffectiveness that they have. The president will not lead on this. Whenever he's oath is sworn to it is not sworn to the constitution of the United States. And one last thing about Jeanne Shaheen in the Democrats, every person. Who is affiliated with the Democratic Party, who is one degree of separation from any one of their politicians you are at risk, they will go to and three degrees of separation from some of these people to go to your emails. Even if you're a constituent that sent in emails because you have to remember the Democratic National Committee was vacuum cleaned of all of its mailing lists. So do not Batum live will tell you do not click on anything when it comes into your inbox and Sarah Kenzi or your manning that I can see you nodding there. I mean the the the belief is that the Russian attack also included grabbing information from our attacking the RNC. They just never released anything from the RMC. It's still directly focused on Democrats in your view, is there enough alarm at there? Are people worried enough because it does seem that the Russians are trying to do the same thing to try to achieve the same partisan result? Yeah, people are not worried enough. They haven't been all along Russia. Has been attacking your infrastructure for a number of years. They've attacked the State Department, the DOD, the RMC, the DNC voter rolls. They've penetrated voter databases. We've known this for a long time and has been pointed out..

"I'm confident you've had private one. Well, you've chosen that setting is the most efficient way. Simple question. You can't. Did did you? Did he tell you what whether or not what happened in those two? Our Senator. The product of your question implied some notion that there was something improper about having one on one meeting. I completely disagree. I didn't ask you predicate. I asked you simple question. I hope we're going to get through it. Did he tell you what transpired in the number of conversation with President Trump about what transpired in the meeting? I was also president when president when he and President Putin, both gave us a sense of what they discussed meeting after. Did you have had the chance to speak with Sergei Lavrov twice about the Russian view on what take place? I think I have a pretty complete understanding. Good points. You speak to the translator who was at that meeting? No, I haven't had seen any of her notes Senator. I never been in lots of meetings had lots of note takers and lots of translators. I've never relied on the work that they did the barrage understand us a place in that meeting and it does not need to the president. Did the president discuss, relax, relaxing, US, sanctions on Russia, including. Cats sanctions Senator the US policy with respect to sanctions remains completely unchanged. So the president did not what you're telling me that I ask very specific questions in very tally you that he discussed relaxing, Russia's fangs or not. Yes or no presence tied to have private meetings. I'm telling you. I came here today. You told me that they conversation in which you told you what transpired? I think the nation and all of us who are policy, Merck makers deserve to know that we can fashion policy accordingly. Did he hell Putin that I'll release or alternately relaxed, sanctions Senator what you need to conduct your role, your appropriate? Well, I will provide you today that is United States policy with respect to the issues you request. You asked me about US policy with respect to sanctions, and I can confirm to that. No commitment has been made to change those policies in any way. I understood Senator. I understand the game that you're playing missing. With respect. I don't shade you characterizing Mike questions. My questions is to get to the truth. We don't know what the truth is. The only way that we will know what the truth is, what transpired in those two hours in highly amazing a period of time to spend alone. One on one is by understanding at least that if you were briefed by the president, what he told you, I don't think that's unfair to know, but but he wouldn't. He wouldn't tell them. He said, yes, I was briefed by the president, but that was a private conversation that we had and he wouldn't give it out. It went back and forth like that. But again, you heard who was rude and the new who was had their voice raised in that exchange, and it wasn't Menendez. It was Pompeo things got a little even more heated. I've listened to your political soliloquy as secretary of state sitting at that table demeaning some members here because you said that Senator Shaheen believes more. The rush. Defense ministry. She was quoting them only because we don't know what our own government is saying. So please don't talk to me about politics on talk about politics if President Obama did what President Trump did in Helsinki peeling you off the capital ceiling, please? Yes, you would. Oh, if President Obama did one, one, one millionth of the things that Trump has done. There would be hearings. There would be impeachment there would be on my God, they would've would've lynched him already. I mean, the hypocrisies just ridiculous. Now, Bob corker is a Republican. He is the outgoing chair of the Senate Foreign Relations committee outgoing because he he's been critical of Trump's. So he's not running for re election, but the problem is he could do so much more. Yes, he's been critical, but he and Jeff flake, they still vote with Trump. They're still going to confirm what's his name, but Brad Kavanagh they could really. You know, corker and flake could make some noise on their way out and decide to just caucus with the Democrats for the last few months. But no, they're not gonna do that anyway. Corker had a had a little..
