The Hill criticizes, but does not recant, Solomon articles
"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G. C. P.

Senator Tom Cotton Repeats Fringe Theory of Coronavirus Origins
"I WanNa read you a headline from the Washington Post out this morning Tom Cotton. That's the senator from Arkansas. Tom Cotton keeps repeating a corona virus conspiracy theory that was already debunked Senator Tom. Cotton repeated a fringe theory suggesting that the ongoing spread of a corona virus is connected to research into disease ravaged epicenter of China. Cotton referenced a laboratory in the city. The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory in an interview on Fox News Sunday morning futures. He said the lab was near a market. Some scientists initially thought was a starting point for the viruses spread. We don't know where it originated and we have to get to the bottom of that. We also know that just a few miles away from that. Food Market is China's only biosafety level four Super Laboratory that researches infectious diseases yet cotton acknowledged. There's no evidence of the disease originated at the lab instead he suggested it's necessary to ask Chinese authorities about the possibility. No we don't have evidence. The disease originated there but because of China's duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says. China right now is not giving us any evidence. Cotton is referring to a well-known lab in Wuhan a Cellular Level Biosafety Level Four facility with a high level of operational security that works on researching dangerous pathogens in response to cotton's remarks as well as in previous interview with the Washington Post. Numerous experts dismissed the possibility. There's absolutely nothing in the genome sequence of this virus that indicates the virus which engineered said a professor at Rutgers Vivid Narang Associate Professor at. Mit says it's highly unlikely. The general population was exposed. It's a skipping logic to say it's a bio weapon that the Chinese deployed intentionally deployed or even unintentionally deployed. That's not what cotton say. The British publication. The Daily Mail was one of the first to suggest a connection between the corona virus and the laboratory wad later. The Washington Times ran a story into that virus may have originated in lab. The Chinese ambassador has rejected the idea. It's true a lot is still unknown. But it's very harmful. It's dangerous to stir up suspicion. So let's review the headline is Tom. Cotton KEEPS REPEATING CORONA virus conspiracy theory. That was already debunked. Can anybody tell me who in this debunked it a professor at? Mit says it's highly unlikely. A professor at Rutgers says the possibility that it was deliberately released can be firmly excluded and the Chinese ambassador himself says there are still a lot of unknowns so who debunked who to bunk. Tom Cotton can anybody tell me in the story from the Washington Post? Who DEBUNK Tom Cotton? Because I'm not seeing that anybody has debunked Tom Cotton Maria. The situation

S. may be pulling the plug on the open skies treaty I have received information that before John Bolton resign president trump may have made a decision to exit the open skies treaty Sullivan neither confirmed nor denied reports trump had signed a document stating his intent to withdraw from the treaty I inquired as to whether we had withdrawn from the treaty and was assured we had not if the US were to pull out of the treaty Solomon added there would need to be substantial evidence to support the national security interests for withdrawal from that treaty that would be a mistake it's really hard to see what we can with Dr we actually conduct many more flights of the Russian in Russia conducts of the United States Stephen Piper is a former US ambassador to Ukraine he says the US has conducted nearly three times more surveillance flights over Russia and Russia has over the US Washington has done similar flights over Ukraine it's a good way to monitor what Russian and Russian proxy forces are doing in eastern Ukraine and and that's a good way to peace order and my guess is the Ukrainians would be unhappy abusing that still opponents say Russia has repeatedly denied American overflights of key military installations one such critic is Arkansas Republican senator Tom cotton perhaps rather than calling this the open skies treaty maybe it should be called the open skies over America and the clothes guys over Russia treaty cotton was speaking at a recent confirmation hearing for admiral Charles Richard nominated to head the US strategic command notably Richard defended the treaty we do derive some benefit from it vertically with our allies we would need to make the appropriate resource and operational command must utilize the full provisions of the treaty if we were to remain that's because Moscow has modernized its surveillance planes but all occur says the US has not yet the United States is it needs to modernize our place that aircraft if it doesn't then it really just talking is getting any value from the treaty not because the treaty has no value because America's airplanes don't work pulling out of the open skies treaty would require six months notice and that hasn't happened not yet

In the US Senate or what the president's like they always wanna know about the old guard..

"And as I said earlier, we're not deploying an aircraft carrier and b fifty two bombers and patriot missile systems in the Middle East to take military action against Iran. We're deploying those. To respond to military action that Iran might take or we hope deter it altogether. Jessica from Twitter, she wants to know why did you send the letter that you did to Iran several years ago? And what did you hope to accomplish by doing so, so Forty-six senators in I in two thousand fifteen released a public letter to the Ayatollah 's, because it was very clear that either secretary, Kerry, wasn't explaining to them, the nature of a treaty and our system of government, or his counterpart, Javad, Zarif was not taking that back to Theron. But we simply made two points that are beyond dispute one. If you wanna lasting and binding agreement with the United States, it needs to be a treaty that Ladimir Putin sought in two thousand ten with the new start nuclear arms, control treaty and to that future, presidents, or future, congresses. If it wasn't a treaty would be able to stop that agreement with stroke of a pen, I would say I was I was proven right? And two thousand eighteen when President Trump did exactly that is America putting enough pressure on Iran. I think everything we've done over the. Last year, especially over the last two months has been moving in the right direction. So for instance, just in the last couple of months, we have designated the shock troops of the Iranian revolution revolution. The revolutionary guard corps as a foreign terrorist organization, exactly what they are. We've also eliminated all the exceptions to the oil export ban which will have a potentially catastrophic effect on the Iranian economy, taking from where it is now a recession into what may be a depression, but also depriving the revolutionary guard corps of hundreds of millions of dollars that they use to support terrorist groups like HAMAs, and Hezbollah and with the thinking of the European Union, they aren't taking the same measures so is America, applying pressure by itself enough. I the America American economy is by far, the largest in the world, Iran's economy by contrast is about the size of Maryland's not many companies, or countries would decide to do business with an economy, the size of Maryland's at risk of doing business with the United. States. I wish the European Union, especially Germany, and France would do more to put pressure on Iran. I think they ultimately will it's just as it often is with those partners, sometimes a long and winding road to get them into the same policy that the United States as Senator Tom cotton is a Republican representing Arkansas. He also served as an infantryman in the US army his new book is sacred duty soldiers tour at Arlington National Cemetery. More with Senator cotton in a moment. Stay close.

"Some of our rice genomes from rice producers in Arkansas hasn't worked. So what we're trying to do is help farmers and ranchers and foresters in addition to manufacturers get a fair trade deal that ultimately will help them that will help family farmers be able to maintain their family farms by opening up new markets for them. What just jumping back to Iran? What would Iran have to do for US military action to be taken? So, for instance, in the nineteen eighties Iran was attacking US flagged oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. If Iran were to attack, US flagged vessel, or in Iraq, one of its proxies, or to launch an attack against a US military installation, or US military troops. I would expect to have a very stern response against run, and we've have another Email here, this one comes from let's see here. This one comes actually. We have no name here. It just says, sorry, Senator cotton, but coming from a family of marines, I'll tell you that Trump set up this coming war with Iran, but pulling out of the nuclear deal, make no mistake that Bolton is leading us to a war that will only spill blood of more Americans. So I had visors advise in presidents decide. So the president has many advisors but ultimately, he's the one that side that's drew. This president as it was true of the forty four that preceded him. Second, pulling on the nuclear deal, did not precipitate this crisis. What's precipitated this crisis in the Middle East of last two weeks is Ron lashing out because of the pressure that our nation is now putting on the nuclear deal is flawed and a couple of ways one it didn't really stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon but to it was only a nuclear deal it didn't touch on. Ron support for terrorist groups like a moss, which had been firing missiles into Israel didn't touch on their support for rebel groups that are trying to overthrow the governments of their neighbors, and, in fact, it empowered those actions by Ron by giving them billions and billions of dollars to fund groups like Hezbollah and HAMAs or the Hutu your eyeballs in Yemen, the actions we've taken over the last year, since we've withdrawn from the nuclear deal has helped put press pressure on the Iranian regime to stop its malign activities throughout the region..

You don't think it's so much of a woman's choice of what happens with her body think that it's ultimately a choice that we have to make when passing laws, one reason, why I think the supreme court should have taken this out of the hands of the American people is because ultimately, it's a moral question about what we will permit in our society to happen. Women have as much say in that as men do, because they vote just like men do for their own elective representatives. But ultimately is immoral question about what a civil? Society, should and should not permit, for instance, earlier this year we pass we tried to pass a Bill in the Senate that would required doctors and hospitals to care for a newborn child if survived intimidate abortion, just like they would care for any other child, or any other persons pretty Stanage. That most Democrats voted against that I think most Americans say that we should protect the new child in those cases now Kate via Twitter. She, she writes to us, why did you vote against violence against the violence against women act. Think h referring to the twenty thirteen Bill. The twenty thirteen Bill had some provisions in it, that we're troubling to me about the rights of the accused on Indian reservations. If you're an American citizen that goes on an Indian reservation and you're used violence rather than being prosecuted by a US attorney, or by local prosecuting attorney, that allow that law would have allowed Indian tribe, sometimes very small Indian tribes in, which everyone is almost by definition related to be able to adjudicate those claims, I think that's could set a dangerous precedent for the rights of accused American citizens. Of course, we all want to stop violence against women. I support law enforcement strongly. But I also take very seriously, the rights of the cues in our side and have a fair and impartial jury, and judge whenever they whenever they are accused of a crime Danny via Facebook, and he's are coming rapid-fire here, wanted just get all these comments in as one of his constituents. I want him to explain why he's telling American farmers to roll over and foreclosure, it's not as if they're dying like soldiers is he trying to finish what Reagan started it sounds as if he'd rather big corporations take over the American farmer. He's too much of a coward to have a town hall that isn't stacked with his base. So I was like, we may have some disagreements there. But what I want to have happen for Arkansas. Farmers is to get a fair shake for decades. They have not gotten a fair shake from China. So, for instance, Sasha, Rice's, our largest commodity in Arkansas, Rice's, terribly discriminated against to the point of almost not being sold at all in many countries all around the world. China though is one of the most notorious countries when it comes to cheating are farmers. Yes, I'd like to see those markets open.

"To take military action against Iran. They're designed to respond to military action by our honor, hopefully to deter it from happening. In the first place, but there should be no doubt, if Iran were to take provocative action against the United States personnel, or allies in the region are we would respond militarily and that response would be ferocious? Let's move onto one other key adversary. In an interview with CBS last week, you talked about the possible trade war with China. So these tariffs are going to end up hurting both Chinese and some Americans. I'll grant you that I think the ultimate hurt the Chinese more than they will Americans in part because Chinese companies and their government have been cheating, the United States for so long. They will be some sacrifice on the part of Americans. I grant you that but also would say that sacrifice is pretty minimal compared to the sacrifices at our soldiers make overseas that are fallen heroes or laid to rest and Arlington make that are out about second those sacrifices. And when I'm home in Arkansas, here from farmers who are worried about opening up new markets and getting their products market. But they also understand that China is a serious competitor the United States and wants to displace us around the world. And they look at the sacrifices that, that soldier. Sailors, airmen and marines make around the world, and they were willing to bear, some of those sacrifices in the short term to hopefully in the long term, ensure our long term prosperity insecurity. So what are Americans who are impacted by the tariff supposed to do? In the meantime, how are they supposed to adjust? Well, when I speak to our candidate, I was speaking to them this weekend was home. They understand that China has been waging a trade war against the United States for the last thirty years. It's simply a matter of the United States, joining that trade war over the last two years. So with the president is trying to do is get a better deal for all Americans are farmers are. Ranchers are Forster's or manufacturers. In addition to our consumers who may pay slightly, higher prices if this trade war goes on for a long time, the twice not using tariffs as a permanent policy, but as a short term tool to try to get a better deal. But I don't think there's much doubt that China has more at stake here. If all those production facilities in China move to countries that are more friendly towards the United States and allied with the United States like Vietnam and Taiwan. Then we will ultimately. We begin to see a restoration over trade relations with East Asia that China will lose those businesses permanently. That's why China has more at stake. That's one of the reason why China has more at stake right now. And I think the president is right to continue to try to put pressure on China to change their behavior and give the United States..

"And we're talking now about the, the likelihood of war with Iran, and how the Europeans are trapped between President Trump and Iran, trying to keep these decent relations with Washington, while committed to supporting the two thousand fifteen Iran nuclear deal that Trump Mont and then abandoned. As you know, that's what they were. I mean, I was not a fan when Senator Tom cotton, rand Paul and all of the other set off that letter to the government of Iran, informing them that, you know, it was not until congress actually passed it, it was not ratified, and it could be thrown out by any president. I was not a fan of that particular letter but it was correct. And that was exactly what we have seen. Senior European government officials say they believe that Mr. Trump as he said, Thursday, does not want a major war in the Middle East. Let's rephrase that does not want another major war in the Middle East now another. But they also believe that Mr. Bolton does the office site. A your times article written by Mr. bulletin in two thousand fifteen when he was out of office, entitled to stop Iran's bomb bomb, Iran, even though there is absolutely not a shred of evidence that Iran is working on developing a nuclear bomb. And European officials are baffled by Trump's assistant, so he simply wants to force Iran into new negotiations. Why they say what Tehran who supreme leader regards Washington as -plicitly in any event casino or even value any deal done with the president who just abandoned a nuclear deal.

And it's not via tweet, you know, after a push back in the idea of of the the generals or literally anyone in Trump's administration is been trying to, you know, having a successful effort raining him in in any way. Abra form. I mean, if we're gonna talk about even the last year with North Korea that was the same thing as a huge tweet storm and was going directly at North Korea. It didn't really seem like there was any any buffer there. Even with these people that were still in the administration. It's it's been it's been like this. This is actually pretty consistent for Trump people leaving people that may have a different opinion of him. They stay for a little while he says, they're good prison. And then they're out, and that's he's been running everything has been running everything like a business. And as if like he is the boss of everyone. So this is what he's doing with with his cabinet and the people around him he enjoys having. Yes, men around him, and he will continue to do that. I can't you however much longer. He is an office.

I think it's only gonna get worse as the years go on and as he runs into more problems with congress and keeps going crazy on Twitter. He will not find people who want to take these jobs, and they are incredibly important jobs. Go ahead Spencer. I will say the other big winner in all these decisions that we've been hearing on Twitter is in fact, ISIS, I mean, if you you can't think of a more perfect breeding round for for ISIS to grow of really for any terrorist organization to grow a lack of aid. That's coming in. You have multiple rebel groups that are fighting to know for surpremacy over the same area. And then you you also have an influx of weapons and other things that are coming in. So if anyone is going to be having Christmas seems like it's ISIS. I mean with all these things going on.

"States. Senator Tom cotton from Arkansas. Good morning Senator. I just want to give you the floor for your commentary on the New Yorker piece and the reaction in the Senate yesterday. The New Yorker pace my to reporters one Jane Mayer tin foil hat conspiracy theorist who has spent most of her life slandering Clarence Thomas without any evidence, and Ronan Farrow, who has had a run of recent reporting until this story at I unfortunately as badly undermined his credibility by teaming up with Jane Mayer and publishing a story that is so thinly source that contains no evidence whatsoever. That undermines by the New York Times reporting. I mean, the New York Times that this story did not meet their standards, you whenever you have a story that makes a Republican look bad. New York Times won't run it because it doesn't meet their standards bets are pretty weak story. And I believe it is blown up in their in their hands. And I liked the leader's comments. And I know that tomorrow's hearing or Thursday sharing weal matter. Great deal. But at this point, I am hoping that every member of the caucuses aware that McCarthyism loosen the land, and that it's just gotta be snuffed out. So, you know, the Democrats and the media I've spent a lot of the last couple of years talking about undermining basic democratic norms. They should look in the mirror talk about undermining basic democratic norms of due process. The presumption of innocence. These are things that go back eight hundred years to the Magna Carta and the Democrats like maisy Hirono or Richard Blumenthal or other senators are essentially saying that rut Kavanagh's guilty simply because he faces an allegation allegations in the New Yorker article that are completely unsupported by any evidence. And that by the accusers admission. Only only came to her after she spent six days working with a former elected Democrats and her lawyer. And allegations from miss Ford that are disputed by the four people she claims were in the house at the time. What she said happened happened. Now, she'll have a chance to present her case on Thursday. But some of the statements my democratic colleagues truly not just resembled McCarthyism. They resemble the kind of Stalinist show trials you saw in the Soviet Union that merely making an accusation is enough. If it's in the greater interest of the party in the state as the Hirono essentially sat on Jake tapper show on Sunday, speaking of the Soviet Union I want to switch while we have time yesterday. Tommy detour who is one of the the kitty core. Keystone cops that ran Obama White House foreign policy tweeted out that the s three hundred sales a game changer for which Israel and US plane flying over Syria, which makes this weekend statement surprising, referring to a statement by Senator Bolton critical the sale, maybe say, please next time to which I responded for two thousand Syrians would agree with you Tommy if they had not been murdered in genocide that progress in the face of invisible ink red lines and carried out in part by the JV's in their evil counterparts to which Tommy and he called himself. Tommy wrote back the war has been raging since Trump took office here. He's done nothing. Thing about it. Besides disable runway for a few hours in lockout all refugees to which I responded, I think the JV's are off the field. Thanks to the American military strategy adopted by real Donald Trump, not many American sailors seized by Iranian either since January of seventeen new red lines are really read not invisible. His parting shot very cool to attack the navy for no reason. Thanks for reminding me that you're not a serious person. Hugh, good luck with the continued destruction the GOP brand I can handle Tommy. Leader Tom cotton. I'm curious about the s three hundreds that launched this. What did you make of the national security adviser statement yesterday? Hugh. I'll I'll leave it to you to fight with the Obama broS and all the interns in the van drivers, whatever they did other campaign at the White House. It's right. Unfortunately, that almost half a million people died on Obama's watch. And I think if I'm not mistaken you at John Kerry on your show a couple of weeks ago. The secretary of state internal van driver White House, essentially admitted the President Obama choked on Syria. Yes, he, Dan. And made a very bad decision. And I obviously have a lot of disagreements John Kerry. But I'd give his word I met the secretary of state a little more creepy than an intern at the White House. But what about the defense? Do we have to get rid of it? So those are that's a that is a serious air defense system. Hugh, however, American and Israeli technology is plainly superior to Russian technology in this case as you saw last week Russians and serums can't even be thrown airspace. They're shooting each other's planes out of the sky. We don't have to respond directly for that. There's many different levers that we can pull to make Russia realize there's a cost for putting those kind of air defense systems in Syria. And I'm confident that the president and the administration will pull some of those lovers rush. It was quite a show yesterday with the secretary of state and ambassador Bolton and Nikki Haley, I just think we are very well presented at this week last thirty seconds to you Senator cotton. Yes, we have an outstanding national security team led by secretary Pompeii on the diplomatic front. And I thought they did very well that the general assembly, and I look forward to seeing the president's speech as well. Senator Tom cotton.

"Of a free republican ever make who gets to come in joy and uh enjoy the blessings of the liberty right now we have a family based system we have a system based on humanitarian concerns and those are all good you know we're we're able to uh you know we're a compassionate people but we also need to think about our posterity we need to think about our children we need to think about who are going to invite into the country who's gonna help to grow our economy and you quite frankly you know improve our society and that's what we really need to focus on here senator tom cotton this morning on one of the one of the morning talk shows and he he's talked about immigration based upon who you are instead of where are your from and so we have a fifty thousand human beings come every year from the worst parts of the world on the lottery system we have no idea who they are what what skills they bring of fanny and the same thing is true with family or chain migration that's dependent upon who you are instant instead of what you can bring to the country so we ought to have an immigration system like most of the world has a lot like australia for example that we they will import those who who had benefits to australia we import those because you related to somebody who's dirt poor from an african central american or asian country that makes no sense at all but but my point i think my point to you is this that the democrats have no desire to solve this problem what they wanna do is run on that issue in november and two years from november they don't want to solve any immigration problem they want to call us chaos in fits their political goals do you think it's realistic to think in the next few weeks that the democrats will want to solve illegal immigration when politically they think they are benefiting from.
