"Is that wants to borrow about four hundred thousand pounds which is called a lot of money back in nineteen nineties. My bank manager then appeal to the ombudsman within the head office of the bank and managed to persuade them to the money to put the house of security. But this is a time when they didn't want houses security because they got themselves very unpopular for jockey people out of houses and they had huge number of houses on that books in fact my particular bank became the stage in order. Try and settle houses. So i was absolutely shocked and stunned when they agreed to name the money when i cleared the dash and relationship is on the more even basis with bank. I did also back to why he led the mummy and you said well. I went wife. What she's telling vacuum cleaner without a bag and she said i hate bags and he said full very long lawsuit in the united states. So i could see you had determination so those were the arguments i used within the bang. It was actually really encouraging. It's a good bank story. There were very few good bank stories and this is one of. Why did you find it uncomfortable to take on investors and end up with thirty percents of the company. What about that made you uncomfortable. I didn't think it would make me uncomfortable but it did. And the reason it made me uncomfortable is that you are. If someone else's put money in someone else's hsieh's you have to listen to them. Well i felt. I had to listen to them. So you'll note actually running the company sharing the running of the company and a of decisions will be decisions that they won't quite right because they've put money into it and you spend lots of time wandering about whether this latest idea you have the approval and you have to get the mission and it has to be done through the auspices of a bold meeting. I've done that. I was a director of a public company. Sending high-speed landing craft engineering company. Then i had my own my company outside to present show it and then finally. I was in a position where i could have my in company and make decisions and during the time the in developing technology before i decided to go to manufacturing commercialized invention in the nineties. I discovered i liked relying on myself rather than having to be collegiate and share decisions but somebody else because it was old down to me and so the whole risk is mine. I evaluate the risk myself. Work it out myself. And i just found that a much easier way for me to work. I'm not like that now. I hasten to add. I've i've matured a bit and that now we do run the company on a collegiate basis but in the beginning abe is really important. Crucial to me than i was all singers. I was making on the fly older since i was making. I was making for me. Because i thought it was the right thing to do. That's a good way to approach things anyway. I think i hated being possible public company. Which wasn't my first job. So i knew that was like and the shareholders too with what is actually happening in the company not through any fault of their own but they can't see into the future like we because as employees of the company. Meaning you had to. At least i'm more familiar with the us. But you were captive to the quarter. By quarter expectations of shareholders. Who could not did not have transparency into the five or ten year. Plans of the company itself. Is that what you mean pretty much. I mean that. There's no reason why they should believe the gleam depending they look like at the moment. Who you all you like at the moment. What you're talking about in the future but it always seemed to be out of kilter prices down and the ship Was we're doing badly and it just seemed to be out of kilter again. You're not on your rain. you're not making decisions because you believe the right decisions. You'll making them sometimes other reasons what. It looks like transparent. They all whatever what shell does might think of it. It's just much better to be one track minded and just thinking entirely about the product. We develop a mate says what we do so sense. Simple thing that we do and that's the product is important. It's not who i am. Or what the company is or what it looks like. This imposing is the pro that guy to excite people and do the job properly. That's what matters. That's all matters. Actually it's not completely true because a cool employees mecha- infusing employees mashah underdog after employees. Let mattis For all of us. Who are working here. What really matters is a product works in the marketplace. I would imagine also happy motivated. Employees and so on talented employees are in a sense a byproduct of good products and then they further helped create good products in the sense. That a lot of these things cascade down from a product focus and you've had a tremendous tremendous run and certainly many more things ahead of you. How did you decide to commit your energies to your new book. Invention a life. This is certainly a commitment of time and energy. How did you decide to focus your energies. At least in. Part on. That paulie. Because i just wish the engineers on just wish that more young people were finding fascinating interesting on with while. And i think it's particularly true now because everybody's talking about global warming is talking about using fewer resources. Recyclability will these things using less energy less water and engineers. That might not happen is the engineers can make the world a keen weld weld. Using less energy.

So if they had a electric wind producing numb they could produce gas guzzling big. Suv's at the other end. No much they make another money but overall they were able to do that without having to buy.

Soon i've been through twenty five billion dulles have twenty five told us privately financed. I'd look to make the miami. I i spend on a contact risk so by about two thousand eighteen.

Are there any features of the car that you're particularly proud of or that you would hope to see in the world someday at scale. Curiously i was a friend of alex. Moulton who did the first small wheel bicycle with suspension. You you know i mean. I don't know what you mean if you wouldn't mind. He developed the mini with alex. Gayness monday the print is eliminated also have very small wheels ultra. Small wheels is that they create a big wheel arch inside the car. So you can make a very small car where the wheel arches protrude much into the cost of there's room for for big adults and he carried on a but you have to pump the ties up harder because the wheel is very small so he then developed a very small wheel. Bicycles called bicycle which had very small wheels and you have to pump the up incredibly hard to overcome the harshness of the ride if suspension on rubber suspension. On it as indian. He is also the palestinians event at the suspension for the mini. And i knew about that. And he was a friend of mine. And i took the opposite view that the cautious have huge wheels and the reason for that is that a large wheel has next nation resistance and so much more efficient and that's efficiency for an electric car is all important so the ability to move on an have the least resistance is what you will so i discovered the biggest wheel that you can make. That way could replace the tie at a time because obviously you call the wheel that you can't replace the tar to todd data. I discovered that was that was saw had huge wheels. I mean the immediate and time atop the huge that was to reduce the mission resists but actually gave a lot of unexpected benefits so it was better at roadholding. It was a more comfortable calm because of it you could relative to the size of the of the hobby the center of the wheel. You cannot have a big ta which made it comfortable because it had a relatively narrow aspect ratio. It was better in snow and mud ta is very slippery and snow a mud as thin. One has much grit and is less likely to act play and when it came to developing the suspension. Total side tend to be excellent as well. We have to develop a special time for it and again. I mean we ambitious. We develop tolerant chassis. And if you think about making 'cause the most expensive and impulsive of the cars the chassis. We decided that we look around and see if those any car.

That was a development cost. I didn't mind that. But i mean tesla didn't veterinarian jesse went swamp in fact later built their first chassis basic car. Initially but we decided not to do that pile on the cost of it. But i think it made a better car. I wanna come back to privately. Held privately held company. This makes what you do and what you've done all the more interesting and impressive to me. I'm much more familiar with the venture backed startup ecosystem and the road map for such a company that involves raising in some cases as you mentioned billions of dollars of funding sometimes tens of billions than going public and so on and so forth.

"Money william athletes dyson and do it. We were three engineers at the time we decided we were going to the business making vacuum cleaners. We had no factory no monday. Nothing just in crammed together in charles where the machine shop underneath a couple of quick questions you believed in it now one could imagine. There's some now in this case it wasn't supposed fallacy sunk cost fallacy. You're so invested in this that you really want to see it to the end. Did you also have consumer feedback or feedback from friends who had used prototypes. That confirmed your belief in the product. Was there some type of market feedback that also contributed to that belief in continuing. I think my friends is also ties. Mad reducing myself my family into penury. But no unfortunately not. By the way i bought out my partner by this point because he'd got fed up with the failed licensees and his financial advisers advise him to get out of those no future in it who Signed him out that story over some stiff drinks these days man or at least it used to be friendly policy and i quite understood it. You know the vat container wilson. His life it was my life not his life. So i bought him out for forty five thousand pounds and i was on my end and in many ways at schlitt i mean he was a huge help and he was my mental a great friends and a wonderful designer and engineer. I felt a bit lonely gang off without him but on the other hand in bet you made me feel better being completely on my in. It suited me that. I had no idea whether minimum wanted to buy this product. No idea retool. I haven't done any market research and you can't gun all someone whether they want to vacuum tina. That doesn't have a bag cycling instead and it's got this automatic hose comes off the bat. You can't get a straight answer to that too easy to think that you can get an off people. Whether you're products is going to be successful. It makes me think of the henry ford quote which i'm paraphrasing. But if you ask people what they wanted they would have said a faster horse something along those lines. And exactly the whole point is you've got to back your instincts yukon. Helpfulness got to take the risks. And sometimes you're going to be okay sometimes. You're not that's just nice slight fashion in a way. That's what makes it exciting. That's what makes it difficult. yes satellite. It's living on the knife itch you you don't know so did you have any difficult conversations with your wife at the time. And if so how were those navigated. How did you approach those. My wife was wonderful. The know difficult conversations. She believed in it. And she's an artist and was wonderfully supportive but she understands the need for project to create something the need to create the need to have a project so she never wants compla- they require them to show monday to grow vegetables. She made plays tubas. Hardworking and wonderfully supportive. There were never any difficult conversations even when we went along to bank with a lawyer to sign endless guarantee forms putting the house on the line every penny. We had on the nine. Wow why very lucky. Saint sainthood is inner wikipedia entry. The retail shops services. And so on as i understand. Please backcheck this. But showed the people didn't want to see their dirt this dust dog hairs etc that the vacuum cleaners bins should not be see through. So why did you decide to design in the way that you did when we went to see the retailers to try and sell that congess retail space them refused to stock it. 'cause the strange looking you could see the dust and his dyson. You'll not nouveau electrolux. Oh big brand. Seven not interested in you so we as engineers we light seeing the dust. It was incredibly satisfying and fun. If you push the machine around on the floor making noise and you could see the dos collecting in the bin. If he's going to bag you can't see your doing anything. And of course i would say not doing much but at least you can see what you're doing and you pick up interesting things although data's disgusting quite fascinating so we thought seeing the results of your devas was an impulsive part of the process. But nobody else did on. The rita's subtly didn't want that. Customers to see the debt. Walnut to brave retailers did take it all and garrison enough seeing the debt was the very thing but customers wanted to have. They wanted that. That found that excitement that satisfaction issue so again. This is what you're really asking about is market. Research is doing. can you learn from it. They answer is not much and you certainly rely so again. you have to. You have to back yourself. You have to back your judgment. It's no science. You have to believe you're right and back and actually the right more than your wrong. With those. Few intrepid retailers are willing to take a risk. I'm wondering what their risk was. Did they actually buy from you at wholesale and then stock did they take them on consignment or some type of other arrangement and what was the pricing of your vacuum compared to others in the stores. Yeah that's a very interesting question. Well i'll do it impounds but the comparison works for dollars. I mean we were selling that just on the two hundred pounds whereas as fact cleaners about fifty pounds so we walked three to four times the price of everybody else. I think the retailers didn't take it because it look different and because we went to brand the wanted to who did take it medal to cutler companies they will first.

"Well yes. I think learning by discovering by failure by making mistakes by being curious about things curious the way you make things curious about the way things work discover. Why something's well. Something's badly the thing i've noticed with. My children is that they to read night. Being tool things they all non by empirically but self-discovery. I mean i was just astonished to find as the mills at home in the workshop. One day and there was my fourteen year old son working the nave. I'd never toss it. He's called through his life like that. My son is musician has taught him to play all old instruments. He plays that flew to the banana the guitar and has taught himself how to how to work all all the systems that recording systems. I think it's the best way to them and exciting ways and a lot of it is failure of course and i want to call my book. A life of failure because vendors exciting. And you've done from fighter if you're taught something and then what you do works you haven't really learnt anything. What doesn't what usually more interesting would you have. A long illustrious. Cv full of successes. But the connective tissue would seem to be hundreds or thousands of what some people might consider failures. I suspect you view them perhaps slightly differently. But could you tell us the genesis story of the vacuum. If you wouldn't mind sharing the origin story. I think that would be a good jumping off point for a lot of other questions. Yes well now. When i was young there day machine. We had home in but didn't been an money when i grew up was vacuum cleaner so low fashioned upright fat container with a huge pillow. Case on the you know the thing. I just remember as i was made to clean the house with it. I'm a mother. I just remember the horrible smell of stale dog style. Toss it not picking things up and then having to go outside and shake the bag out and restoring the machine and it's still not working very well. So i just remembered that from my childhood and then when i was like you starting family and at a wife and so i bought one of these secondhand one of these original type of vacuum. Katina's by the pillowcase. On the back hanging off from that same experience. So i thought well that must be more modern version so we went shots of my wife and we bought what was an engineer is powerful back junior in the world and it was a canister model. Let's just on the ground. You push long. Can you pull it around with the host and it had paper bags is advanced from pillowcases to pay bags and i experienced the same thing. You know it wasn't picking things up. It was smelling of nasty stale. Tolkien stale dos muslim. Picking things up so i. I couldn't find a replacement bag. Because i see the bag was full. So went on tips the contents into the garbage cam and gaffer tape toll. Scotch taped it. The end back up again so i had an empty bag bag full. That's an empty bag. And i put it back in the vacuum gina and still no suction and i thought. Wait a minute wait a minute. What's this all about. I was told that when the bag is full. You have to change the bag with. I'm discovering is. There's an empty. Bag has no suction i so i thought about being someone within engineering bent. The penny dropped only f- flow had to go through the bag. The bag wasn't a depositry. When the dust went the bag is a filter. And the very first dos. That goes into the bag superior case or trough bag clogs the bag. The dos goes straight for those halls. 'cause thus will get out taken that by the f. flight when the hose applaud. The floor is blocked. So you lose suction. I went down to the Basement bag put it in the machine and at very good suction to begin with and then it rapidly tailed off as accurate so i thought well this is crazy and if you buy a light bulb is supposed to give you a hundred watts. Let's we'll difficult now with led's especially give you hundred wars. And it gives you the hundred watts to the paul you get a hundred percent of fullness what you're getting this. Vacuum cleaner is a heavily reducing performance. This is awful. I'm annoyed angry anyway. So anger simmering within me until i was installing a dry powder coating machinery huge machine to spray my wheelbarrow. Frames is making the bull buyer wheelbarrow time and we used a cloth filter Trap the paladin amidst the frames it was sucked away with the giant fan but every of twelve clogged you had to shut down the whole machine. Shake off a cloth and put the cloth back up again. I asked around the industry what intelligent people used and they said oh. They use a site claim to collect the tasks not that filter thing. You've got that cloth thing you cycle quote for one was huge. Amount of money simply couldn't afford it so i decided to build one over a couple of weekends such high chimney at the top stuff through the factory roof and we collected the dustin plastic bag boston. The site and the machine ran beautifully all day long without ever clogging. We collected the dust. The beauchemin reused then. Of course i connected it this clogging filter with the clogging bag in the vacuum cleaner. And i wonder why. Kahn to use a little version of what the highway one for higher whilst that could have been so i rushed home and made a cardboard version of this huge one foot high. I'm pushing it onto the back of my upright vacuum. Tina because i've kept the upright one and pushed around and did appear to work so i always say that was the first vacuum cleaner. That doesn't lose suction neither the efficacy. I didn't know how when it collected the fine dust. Will i knew that it was collecting. The dog has in the and the dust that was on the floor..

Do You Know Who's Listening to Your Podcast?

"Hello everybody welcome. Tucson's profitable podcasts. We have james cridland. Johnny here james. A pod news and is honestly probably the only reason you know about sounds profitable sir james. Thank you so much for being here with us. It's a great player is a great pleasure to be talking twice on your podcast. Because i think i think everybody is just heard. My dulcet tones already. That's true that we have the awesome syndication that comes right before all of this and maybe we can time it so you do a passback between each other. We do that right for next week. But this week we're gonna talk about an article. Wrote back in september with your help entitled you're incorrectly identifying up to fifty percent of your user agents and the focus here was that you discovered that people weren't paying attention to another type of region not just the requests when someone presses play on their podcast app and it sends an asked for the episode but rather the request of the rss feed itself. That can tell us a lot about the device. So i'm gonna pass over to you. Tell us a little bit about the process user agent and how you stumbled onto its value. Yes so to rewind a little bit whenever something connects to something else on the internet sends over header which is a user agent which basically says you know. I'm a computer or a mobile phone but tells you a little bit more about that. So that's a really helpful thing in terms of podcasts to target because you know that Particular listeners listening on android phone or an iphone or whatever it might bay and those sent through on the download to audio and so that's typically what podcast hosts us to show you how people are listening and is typically what people use as well to target but there is another connection of course in the connection is to your rss feed which is a big list of your individual episodes that you have and that also has a user agent attached to it. So one of the problems that i saw when i was starting to do my own podcast stats was that I was seeing an awful lot of connections from a user agent. Called apple corps media. An apple co-mediator is an interesting thing in that it is a library. That apple have written that lots of Podcast apps us to play your podcasts. It's not just used by apple. Podcasts used by loads of other people as well yet. When i was looking at the data all i could see is apple corps media and i couldn't work out whether that was apple podcasts whether that was pocket costs whether that was overcast. Whatever it might be so. I was really curious to see well. Is there any other way. That i can find out exactly what podcast host is actually having a look at this and rss user agents all the way round there. Yeah and so you got rca in her went. When the request came you started a pending a unique value to all the episode downloads based on that. Rss user agent right. Yeah that's exactly how it works. You ask for the pod news. Rss feed it. Takes a look at what the user agent as of that particular. Rss connection and then adds it to the audio request. So it might say from feta or from spotify or from castro or from various other things so you net then no as a podcast hosting company you then know that that piece of audio the reason why that piece of audio is being requested. Is that the rss feed was discovered by that particular app by castro all apple podcasts. Or whatever it might be and so you know whatever the audio user agent is you know that this is castro talking to you all podcast addict or whatever it might be so you end up with far less unknowns in terms of your podcast play information and that say tremendously useful things. I'm taking a look at yesterday's data and yesterday's data is showing me that two hundred and ninety six individual plays that i had yesterday. Were done through apple corps media. And if i hadn't looked at the irs data. As well. i'd be they're going. I literally don't know anything about that apart. From the fact that it's clearly being played on an apple device of some sold literally. Don't know which app is actually playing that so now that i'm able to also connect the rss user agents. It means that. I know all of those and then odal apple podcasts. A wide variety of people that use apple media

We spent a lot of time going back and forth to Napa and went all the nice restaurants there, but never got into the French laundry still have never been in that restaurant. Your room. Beauregard. The worst rule is the $150 corkage fee at the French laundry. I don't even know if that's true. The French lottery is like this exceptional. And amazing, small, small restaurant.

Novichok-tinged bottle found in Navalny's room: colleagues

"Now. Supporters of the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, say traces off the nerve agent Na'vi Chuck have been found in a water bottle retrieved. From his hotel room in Siberia on the line from Moscow, Sergei Gauri Ash from the BBC's Russian service and Saturday. What's the significance of this? Sir James, the first and most Navalny's supporters has actually proven that the most prominent Kremlin critic was likely poison before he headed to the airport in Siberia. And fell violently ill on a flight last month, So at first they thought that he was poisoned in the airport of AA Cup of tea, which he drank in the airport Cafe in Tom's cuts the city in Siberia. But they have actually proven that they found a bottle of water with dresses off this nerve. Asians know the choke on the neck of that motel in Navalny's hotel room, where he stayed in Tomsk. Which is why he was likely already. I think he was poisoned already, and he drank water from that bottle, and he left traces off the nerve agent on the neck of the bottle. Either the bottle was poisoned and which is one of only felt ill already on the plane. So and we I also know how exactly they have a past this very significant. Ah, ah, bottle to the German experts. So Navalny's supporters entered his hotel room just An hour after his press secretary tweeted that Navalny has fallen ill and the plane has landed in the city of Omsk. They have entered this room on DH. They searched for any objects which navalny could could possibly touch. Or he could use to check whether they were poisoned or not, And they've all supposed to Video in their accounts showing how they were searching this room and how they were packing This bottle's in plastic bags, using gloves and transferring them thereafter to building Bond his supporters then I mean, what did they say about this? In terms of what? It changes? Ah, you know for the investigation. Well, in fact, the video surveillance system in the hotel where Navalny has state and the Russian investigative news outfit, Proact has reported that the recordings from this system has been taken off by somebody, apparently from somebody from the security services. And it would be really not difficult to trace who has been entering Navalny's room at that hotel and who has been placed in pockets of water in his hotel room? Because he apparently drank from the bottle, and that both of was poisoned. And it is possible to. Ah, connect those two and to realise how this bottle of water ended in his hotel room and who brought it there. S O. The significant thing is that nobody was poisoned Like, hours before he actually felt ill so that our execute shed some light on the Ah how exactly he was poisoned. Two. Experts say that it couldn't be a poison in the water because in this case he would be Dead if you will be ill, like in minutes, not in ours, but it actually is their part of the investigation on this thing, and they obviously are goingto work in it more and more, But they just told how exactly they have found this bottle and where the crisis of this notion occasions were.

one since all this happened with a corona virus in awhile I what about now can you hear me now better you're back again they're aghast at tells I fix it I actually got employee of the month some of the acts all right or talk about I forgot your time at all you're nothing important gets all the all the feedback again all right let me get to the the president's rally in Tulsa first of all he does this a lot and I never understand why this is just a basic principle that you go by in life not and and not just like in politics or anything like that in in a lot of things you want to under promise and over deliver right and what we were hearing leading up to the rally in Tulsa Oklahoma what is that nineteen thousand seat arena I'm not gonna be enough we're gonna have an overflow section outside the president's going to speak to them because it's gonna be thousands of people outside the arena than the nineteen thousand inside and four hundred five hundred six hundred eight hundred almost a million people have responded requesting tickets and then talk about anticlimactic the first thing that happened was the president cancelled his speaking engagement in front of the overflow crowd outside because there wasn't one then the vice president was going to do something outside he canceled because there's really no reason to have an overflow crowd outside when you didn't even have nineteen thousand people in the arena what I was so confused everybody got in yeah but like in the afternoon is watching the news and just in bits and pieces I'm like what am I watching like video from early this morning where there's no one there or was that the overcrowding that did you did S. and show up I was so confused like all day long I didn't get to watch the actual speech at the rally and so it's just like the run up to it was like is it just empty are they waiting for people yeah and so the total number of people who were at the rally came in at at sixty two hundred that was according to the Tulsa fire department so obviously far short of what the arena holds and you could just see that from the pictures especially the panoramic images you know a lot of empty seats in fact the way he it was set up you probably could practice social distancing in the winter you coulda had everybody in their own section for every other seat but right then the first thing to come out after what was obviously a smaller than expected crowd was that there was something going on with college students and high school students on tick tock which is another social media platform one that I have no interest in getting involved and I don't really even understand what it is it sounds like that video there there used to be James what was that program there was like a ten second video that you would make before of course I'm drawing a blank the name of you know what I'm talking about the right to have vine yes vine the yes yes it was fine I dared to touch basically by right I don't know I mean I know Kate Williams match to which one dub smash where you would like a voice over something done something right thank you Natalie do take time away the lore every morning here it's a big production brown like yep I was like fifteen second videos yeah and that's that's all that the people dead and then Instagram allowed you to take videos and vine died out now this is tick tock which I mean I don't really know what the whole thing is behind it but this is one moment where we could really use Morgan because she's I think she's on it or I'm sure at least knows about gas but but there is this this rumor going around that and I guess some of it's true that the you had a lot of younger people who were just signing up for the rally Ted troll the president's campaign but the president's campaign said that that really didn't impact them because a lot of what that is the signing up thank you a million people were gonna show up and they take all that information because that's that's get out the vote information that's information they can send for donations so they just like collecting a lot of information that's why they'll take requests even if they don't have enough tickets right for all of the request so I don't think that threw them off at all it didn't prevent anybody from getting tickets to get into the arena then there was talk about the media because of all the discussion leading up to the event and how potentially unsafe it might be having some you know nineteen thousand people packed into an indoor arena most not wearing face masks that could be a real problem for Oklahoma state where despite what the vice president now others were saying is seeing a surge in cases right now but here's the thing the people going to the trump rallies they think the mainstream media's fake news and then pay attention to what they say anyway so even if you had CNN MSNBC New York times and doctor found she's saying it's not a great idea to go to the rally.

"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.
