And i was less than kind in how i spoke about you. I got a lot of laughs in the room. And i'm glad i was able to put on a good show. That was me being an angry open. Mic over zach. Told me you're the shit. And i just heard you skanks willing to admit i was wrong about you. You were humble and funny on the show. And i was just way off. I'm sorry you're going through all of this. Sorry i talk shit about you so twenty respond. I love it. I love him. So here's the problem. Like and i am not a reflects. On dalton dalton. Honestly the reason we're talking about right now because we like him because look forty dollars a power quote attention here. Low-cost right good for you and getting attention. People are talking about you right not. He's not doing it completely wrong. But you don't want to get the people that can help you. That are on your side that do light you to dislike you by being shady to them. When it's like these are like me dave tony. These are people that would be on your side in your corner and it's in my opinion. It's i don't know. I just feel like he misses the mark barry often and he's a little out of the canon for sure. I mean i never heard his name before. You brought him on the show of course on ijaz skanks and now i see him around and everything and he's like sits in the background of legion of stinks every behind you stand and stuff though i mean and on got i'm not saying it just like alex but like you just trying to figure it out but he's just doing it and he's at a. It's a different approach than i would have had when you come in. I didn't come into be like kinda loud in the group. You know what i mean. of course. well you know. Here's what happened is actually a great point out Alex said this he he should on dylan. Unrealized has put his debut in the world was he came in. and he. shit on dillon. When dillon was perusing. My shell was at the height of dylan. Hateley everyone who loved to shed on dylan and he. He really leaned in that and he's got some just talked about before. It's like little colonels. Kevin brennan got a little kernel of success with be talking shit on people so i think he's trying to recreate that again and again. Only create this moment. But it's like these guys aren't dylan beyond that it's like i don't know whatever we spend enough time talking about. I liked dalton. Dalton does freak out about these things and he has been like worrying that he's like don't just chill..

"Push by clown you get right to his feet you still wanna go is just fine. I'm a comedian. Shake his hand. I have an electric shocks. We gotcha motherfucker here. Smell this flower acid. But do you know what i'm saying like so i i don't know like twitter and social media like an podcasting. Oldest of it is just another way to communicate right. There's all it is like whether it's a phone call with her. I talking shit if you're talking shit you're talking shit right like what. It doesn't matter what the medium is. You're still talking shit so one point you're going to be in that person's face i'm just the type of guy just like bob. Yours jimmy i think just like dave as well just like i know for just like you jay like if you've been talking shift for a while i'm going to see at one point. I'm going to say something when i see you. And how you act in. That moment is going to determine whether or not it gets fucking crazy so that yeah that's evidence regularly on dealing with that because he's dealing with fucking real dudes and i and i said i like real astronauts i like kevin but it's like your fucking old feeble white guy and woods where you're not gonna fight people. You're willing to call the cops. That's that's the thing. That's very weird right like i i kind of. I don't understand it. But i kind of expect it coming from like twenty year old. Woke kids like that's kind of a thing of there's like they'll talk shit like they wanna fight and then not fight at all but kevin is an old man and is a very weird thing to me like. He's not busting my balls. He's like talkin shit but you know very much like he would literally if if i saw him which i will see him at some point and what he will literally do is like be like cow or call the cops he will. He will cops if you hit me. So it's like okay so then fine but just stop talking shit. I don't end. Luckily would. I've learned 'bout fucking getting it to fight. It says i will also call the cops. Even if i just hit you and guess what we both go to jail and i'll take the night in jail for certain people. I'll take the night in jail by the way i'm not. That's not where i'm at with. The kevin thing i think the whole thing is can say something your item on site dude. I wouldn't smack him. But i would probably punch make him cower looking back right i could talk. Tm other do to a to a frail older guy Gonna airplane when he saw me laying out that table. Your mind of neil dude. That's what it is dave. Oh my god. I just realize dave looks like neil with facial hair. That's what it is well up meal next today. Maybe that's triggered him. It's no i love. Neil's a buddy of mine. But dave is significantly. More hands were brothers. It would make more sense than kevin and you'll be better. That is true because a both like skinny guys but dave's way better looking. Don't you dare. Oh my god. Looks dave if dave was dipped into a vat of acid came out i my day. It looks like dave. Pick the wrong holy grail..

Was i wrong. No i think. I think you really caught off guard by it i was. I was certain. I wasn't wrong. But i just wanted to ask. The question is once never so very unlikely. Now here's here's what dalton adult business pro wrestling. Which i very much live. I live in this world of like podcast pro wrestling and we fuck around so adult. And i think he sees that he wants to have fun and wants to jump in and i think the problem dalton is he doesn't understand not everybody lives in that world right so kevin brennan not living in that world for wrestling for kevin brennan like kevin brennan is like. He's talking shit. He doesn't like dave so this is right but it's like dalton doesn't really understand it's like you're not like taking some side. We're bobby kelly's busting my balls. And he's like i think bobby is one of the you it's like it's a dude is actually talking shit and all coming onto a show. That's he's uninvited and just sort of showing up It's just bizarre. It's just a weird. It was just a very weird thing to do in the moments with the producers. Like alex and i guess bobby were saying they were like.

"Guess michael. I know that's part of my frustration. Coming out no one. I said that. But i know what i did and did not do and i know that i did not leak and i looked at the fact that adam schiff and i were the only two members involved in this that a minor child of a staffer was involved in this. And you have to attorney. General's saying that they did not know about it far and sessions and so to me if you are surveilling members of congress who are critics of the president and the attorney. General is is not being briefed on it at one. That should be fireable a to. I don't really buy that. They weren't briefed on it. And so it makes me wonder. Why didn't anybody say look. This is this is wrong. This is not what we do and again i. I'm saying this from the perspective of somebody. Who knows i was innocent. I didn't do anything wrong. I i can't see any probable cause to go into my records and so if you are going into my records i think you're doing it unlawfully. And when you're doing that against the vocal critic of the president. I think there should be consequences. Congressman two quick follow ups on this one. You said that attorney general merrick garland called you about this said he. He didn't know about it. What else did he say did he. Express dismay was e surprised concerned. What did he tell you. It was very kind. He he called it actually apologize that he had not called me. You know a day or two earlier. He'd just been so overwhelmed. Landing on the job but he told me he did not know about this case until it broke in the news and that he was seeking to learn more about it and again i. I was very clear with them. I did not want to direct him in any way as to what to do or what i thought he should do. Because that would be just as wrong. I just wanted to make sure that he understood the concerns that someone who has criticized the president would have if their records are being when again. They know that there was no reason for that to happen. You told them that you hope that there would be a inspector general investigation as it turns out the inspector general. The justice department's independent watchdog. Michael horowitz announced that he is reviewing this episode. They reached out to you. Have you been questioned in this probe at all yet. Do you know anything about what they're specifically what they're looking at We'll tell us about the. I g investigation. No they have not again. I just want to make it clear that. I don't know why my records or mr shifts records were probed as somebody who knows that they did not leak. It's highly suspicious. But i'm willing to at least wait to see what. The investigation concludes But to me it. It is worthy of investigating considering. How boko mr schiff and i were of the prior administration and the prior attorneys-general but just to be clear. Is it your position that there are no circumstances under which of the justice department should subpoena the email and phone records of members of congress. Just the opposite i. I don't think i'm above the law more than anyone else is above the lot. My position is knowing that. I did not leak. I'm very curious as to how they would justify going in to my records. So that's what concerns me and again. I think you have to be extra careful when you're going into the records of lawmakers who've been critical of the president that doesn't make you immune but that certainly i think means that the attorney general you know should consider the damage you can do to institutions critics. Feel like the punishment for speaking out is that you're gonna have your records gone because i would want. I assume you would want the the car justice department to subpoena if they have grounds the records of republican members of congress who might have had interactions with some of the organizers participates in participants in january six if they have probable cost yes but not just because their opponents of the press and again. I'm saying this from the perspective of someone who knows. I did not leak so it makes it very much concerns me that my records were looked at When there's not a more likely than not scenario where i would have leaked. So i wanna take us back if i can't the first impeachment now so one of the criticisms especially that was raised by the republicans during that first impeachment was that it was baked in advance. Basically that the democrats had intended to impeach donald trump. From the minute. He was sworn into office that you were laying in wait for any sort of minor error that he might commit. That could justify impeachment thinking about that criticism. I'm wondering if the republicans take congress back in two thousand twenty two. Do you anticipate that. They will impeach joe biden. No we impeach. I can't predict what they will do. But i know that speaker pelosi laid this out in. The book was very careful to make sure that we had consensus. Among the congress. There was a call for impeachment. The second donald trump was elected from some of my colleagues in speaker. Pelosi was very careful to make sure that we only would do so if we had evidence reason to do so. Do you think that the current leadership of the republican party has that same sense of restraint that nancy pelosi did as you say in two thousand seventeen and no. I don't think kevin mccarthy has any core set of principles or integrity. That would restrain him. But i was in. I put it on the book. I was one of the i was a presidential candidate. As much of this conduct was coming out. And i was one of the last presidential candidates to call or donald trump's impeachment because again as a former prosecutor i wanted to apply the rigors of evidentiary law to this case to make sure that we actually did have the goods. If we're gonna move forward and the impeachment of donald trump won foreshadowed. What was going to come. Which was in impeachment. One he was trying to rig the election before it happened by putting dirt on his opponent and impeachment to he wasn't willing to accept the outcome of the election and was used willing to use violence instead of you know bribery to determine the outcome it and so I don't regret at all that. We impeach him if anything. I regret that we didn't do more oversight of donald trump and others. I regret that. We didn't teach bill bar and i was calling for that if you recall throughout the bar days that We should we should impeach bar before we impeach trump for what he had done with the muller report and the lies that he told the congress around the report. But don't you think given the the fervor of the republican base arguing for you know Focusing for example on on one hundred biden's business dealings and whether or not joe biden knew about them the fact that the many republicans have already filed articles of impeachment against joe biden. And what you say is kind of a lack of restraint on the part of kevin mccarthy. Don't you believe that. There's a significant chance in twenty twenty three if the republicans take over control of the house that they will begin legitimately impeachment proceedings against joe biden. Oh yes there's there's serious chance based on the dialogue and statements..

"I got his phone number. I texted him. i called him. He picked up and then hung up and then he called me back. And you know. I thought okay here. We go What what are you gonna tell me. Mark and there was silence on the other end. So i don't know if it was a missile or trying to see who i was But then we got word from his lawyer. After i had reached out a number of times that he would not honor a subpoena. He would fight us in the courts and it just felt like that was going to define any witness. Oh no reason to expect. He's going to do anything differ committee comes from. But let me ask you something else as you know. The merrick garland justice department. Recently filed in court saying it was going to represent donald trump in a defamation lawsuit brought by jean carole a woman who says donald trump raped her many years ago and then defamed her when she went public with that. There's been a lot of speculation that the same logic will hold to your lawsuit that the garland justice department will basically intervene to block your lawsuit against the former president saying he was acting as a chief executive of the united states and is therefore immune from civil suit. How concerned are you that the garland justice department is going to be your nemesis in this lawsuit. And what do you make of them representing trump in the defamation case brought by jean cow. I think it's wrong. In the carroll case and if they were to represent donald trump or mo brooks or anyone else in my case i think they might as well just say that we would represent any president in any case that they're soon whether it's a homicide case or whether it's the argument would be that. The president was acting as part of his official duties as pressure. And the i understand the argument. Michael guy i submit that when you hold a rally or your presidential campaign and you say you have to fight like hell and you don't have a country anymore and you tell the mob that you're going to go with them. The bob goes. You are so far outside the boundaries of your official duties. As i said this was done completely on the campaign. He was sending. You know the emails that invited the mob on the campaign side. So i think this is well outside the bounds of being president in eugene carroll case again just because he was at an official press conference he was being asked about his personal private pre-presidential presidential conduct. He can just decline to answer the question. And say i'll talk to you about that. It's not appropriate here but instead he smeared a sexual assault victim. I think once he does that you know key. His personal private conduct of predominates any privileges that he should have as president so i. I hope the department doesn't do that. There has to be boundaries. For what's an official and what's not protected. Type ask you something else. About the justice department you were as amply reported Recently informed that the justice department under bill barr had gotten your phone phone records and e mail records as part of a leak investigation. You're quite outraged about that. But there's very little we know at this point about what was going on inside the justice department. What these leak investigations were who approve them. Where they targeting you or were they targeting others and then you're communications got swept up in the targeting of others. I know you've asked for information from the garland justice department about this. What do you now understand the answers to those questions. What were the leak investigations. Who approve them. And who was being targeted michael. You remember this era because you were a dog reporter trying to get to the bottom of what was going on with russia. I wanted affirmatively. Say i did not have not incense will not leak classified information as so. I never did that. i understand. It's reporter's job to get to the bottom of the. But i did not do that In what concerns me. Is that the two people whose communications were sought and received or myself. And mr schiff. I think were the most vocal critics of the president at the time. Which is why it's important. That attorney general garland has an inspector general investigation and that the judiciary committee also conduct no supplemental investigation. The attorney general assured me. He called me a told me it was the first i had heard of it in the he was going to get to the bottom of it himself so i don't have many answers right now but it's hard for me to accept any other reporting that i've seen out there that we would just collaterally a part of a leak investigation. That involved a staffer win again. The two people whose records were obtained as far as we know where the most vocal critics that just to me. But you don't know what they were invest. No i don't write you called on just one question in this after this came out. You said anybody involved in this at the justice department should be fired now. You know how these things work there were career prosecutors who filed these subpoenas went into court to defend them argued that they should be kept under a gag order. They may have been operating under strict instructions from bill bar and do really want to do it but they were forced to do it or they may have thought they were legitimately doing an investigation under justice department guidelines to pursue a leak. Was it really appropriate to say absent. You having answers to any of these questions. That career people civil servants at the justice department should be fired. When you don't even really know who is involved in. What exactly they.

"But how do we make sure it does not happen again in. Also it was frustrating. Michael during the impeachment trial we had the pressure coming down on us of a senate that understandably had to confirm joe biden's cabinet and his appointees and so there were constraints on us in that regard. There was the recognition that if donald trump in others refuse to testify at the senate trial we would spend years in court. Litigating those subpoenas in. I'm liberated from that in my lawsuit. I don't have those time constraints and time pressure and really in my pursuit of accountability. I'm not limited by that to get the truth by the way. What is the judgment that you're asking for here. I mean are you asking for like a sort of a one dollar judgement. Just symbolically make the point that this is about accountability. Or are you asking for some other kind of remedy. But we're not that state yet. Certainly we alleged the different torts of intentional infliction of emotional distress as well as impeding me from doing my duty and certainly that is one of the prayers for relief as they call them. There could be an injunction. There could be a financial penalty. It's certainly for me is mostly about accountability. And i'll let our loyal our legal team and the judges sort out where that ends up but right now it's really primarily about accountability and if you're tracking where are we right now. Each side is responding to the other side's filings around the motion to dismiss and that seems to be one of the biggest hurdles that we have to clear is to survive. They're motion to dismiss. And then you would go into the discovery process which is essentially you know us seeking evidence in the case seeking depositions from the parties to understand their complete ole. Let me just follow up. Because he's you said something interesting and it's also mentioned in your in your book. Which is the the incredible difficulty that congress has an institution has in getting discovery and in getting information. And your book. You mentioned an incident where a news organization filing a foia request got better access to data than congress. Did you just mentioned in your lawsuit. You're doing it because as as an individual congressperson just as an individual suing you have a better chance of discovery than congress does. I mean it really points out that congress's almost you know enfeebled as an independent investigative organization or entity nowadays is there. Is that a first of all. Do you concur with that kind of assessment of congress's role and is congress doing anything to change. That state reforms are needed. An atom shifts protect our democracy. Act that would essentially create a fast track. Four congressional subpoenas so you cannot don mcgann congress where you know in the spring of two thousand nineteen. The miller report comes out. Judiciary committee seized on mcgann as the central figure. Call him in to testify and it was just about a month ago that we actually were able to get him when all the way up to the supreme court before we were able to negotiate with the department of justice around his testimony. And and that's just wrong that you know when you have abuses of power that are alleged and people are able to just run out the clock. That congress isn't able to conduct its oversight authority that so yes that reform i think is needed also. No i did not file my lawsuit. Because i couldn't get we couldn't get information in the senate under saying because i'm seeking accountability. A benefit collateral benefit of. That is that i believe we will have better than congress did. In seeking discovery. Victoria was asking the kind of process question. About how you get the information but tell us about the information the evidence that you are seeking both in your own lawsuit and having been deeply involved in the impeachment investigation and then having been one of the managers in the senate trial. What is the key evidence. The key information that you're seeking that the american people still need to know about january sixth so sparingly there are a lot of gaps around what was donald trump doing the day of the attack it was. We saw the footage of the insurrection. Tailgate where they're all in the tent watching the footage of the mob moving from the ellipse up to the capital. But you know what was. Donald trump being told by national security and law enforcement officials. What decision points was he. Making regarding sending a what was he told in of course in the days before you know as these questions about should the national guard be dispatched foot limitation. Should they have had and then of course in the weeks before because we know for many many weeks. The trump campaign spent fifty million dollars on. Stop the steel. you know email and digital ads. How much direction was given by donald trump. Because he sent that to am tweets in mid december saying january. Six will be wild. And then there was just this barrage of tweets afterward. So what foreknowledge. Did he have about. Who was going to be there in. Why did he believe it was going to be so wild so we might think that you know that the january six committee that was just created would be a key player in figuring these sort of things out. But at as you've just noted congress's pretty toothless in terms of its ability to pursue subpoenas to be mcgann and if the shift and so. How much can we really expect. This january six committee to be able to uncover given how how handcuffed congresses. At getting information. I will say that they will be a little less tam cuff because now they will be subpoenaing. People who are no longer in office and so some of the protections they had don't exist any further but that doesn't mean they won't let a gate them and it will still take time. Because no i don't think anyone expects donald trump is just gonna walk in on his own accord. I don't think anyone expects that. I pointed out mark short in the book. You know we had a good lead. That marked short wanted to talk. He was mike pence at the capitol that day in sources. Were telling me and others that if you can get short end once you can call witnesses. He would be a good witness to give penn state of mind. Donald.

"Is. This is us together on something like we can have a fight on voting rights later. You mentioned the you mentioned the critical thing which is the ability of this committee to get new information. How many times if we set on this podcast that at the end of the day whether you're reporting or you're investigating you need new information to advance the ball and to move the needle and use pick whatever bad metaphor you. You wanna pick. I agree with everything you're saying. My only caveat is you never know when this is true in the reporting that we do you never know when new information might come forth in ways that you least expect them to too much. Time has passed since donald trump was in office. You don't know. If there is someone some whistle blower type who was in the white house at the time who might be able to shed light and might be willing to shed light on what donald trump was doing during those critical hours. And so maybe unlikely but not impossible. And it's part of the reason that you do these high profile investigations because you are looking for opportunities to attract and encourage people to come forward subpoena. We all would love to see. Is the one to kevin mccarthy to testify under oath before the committee about his conversation with donald trump that day which according to congresswoman jaime herrera butler who was debriefed by mccarthy shortly after that phone call trump was completely dismissive of mccarthy's please to call off the mob even sort of allegedly saying something to the effect of. You don't seem concerned about the theft of the election or from me rather than the imminent threat to members of congress that day. I really doubt mccarthy would even honor a subpoena from this committee he will inevitably say it's completely partisan and he's not going to participate in a partisan witch hunt. But maybe just maybe jaime herrera butler the congresswoman from washington republican. Who i said mccarthy had told her all this maybe she'll testify a maybe that will move the ball slightly and who was on the witness list for the democrats during the second impeachment. Trial of trump. Yeah so you know and let me just one other of subpoena or or witnesses who would be great to hear from the january six special committee and that is the people who were mentioned in a recent series of propublica reports which indicates the kind of the closeness of the trump campaign or some of the the members former members of the trump campaign in organizing january sixth rally. And they're kind of ongoing efforts to recruit and be heavily engaged with some of these far right groups who were responsible for the storming of the capitol. I agree with that last thing. Which is you know. You've got the justice department investigation but that investigation is looking at only criminal acts and you had of course the impeachment investigation but that was really rushed and as we were saying all impeachment investigation they just impeach of the centers essentially was no investigation. So this is in some ways the first kind of broad based investigation that has looking at all aspects of what led to january sex. What happened on january. Six and then of course the impact of january danny. You've convinced me it's not going to be a complete waste of waste of special doesn't convince me we've got an excellent guest talk about all this. So let's get to it all right. We now have with us congressman. Eric swale well of california member of the intelligence committee the judiciary committee and author of the new revised paperback endgame inside the impeachment of donald. J trump congressman. Welcome back to skullduggery. Thank you michael. Yeah. we added four chapters and an s to the title right impeachments. Poirot will definitely want to ask you about that. But i want to start out with your lawsuit against former president. Trump rudy giuliani donald trump junior and your republican colleague mo brooks for their role in inciting january six attack on the capital. Now as you know congressman brooks responded yesterday saying he is immune from civil suit because he was acting as a member of congress when he gave his talk at the january six rally. President trump has also asserted immunity. What's your response to their immunity. Claims how to get around. Well what a freeloader. Right i mean this is someone who spends every our he has saying the federal government shouldn't be involved in anyone's life shouldn't give you healthcare. Shouldn't help you get vaccinated. But he's asking for the department of justice to defend him in this lawsuit but he's not immune. He was acting as he said on behalf of a request from the executive branch. So i think he's acknowledging that he is kind of crossing branches to help a executive branch candidate who is hosting a not a official rally but a rally as a candidate. So i i don't buy the immunity defense. He also claims that he would not have done it but for donald trump asking which seems to be the defense that so many of the hundreds of criminal. Defendants who've been arrested have made that. Which again i think points to. Donald trump is being the chief instigator. Assembler insider here but that doesn't mean mo brooks does not own some culpability and so for us. It's really just about accountability and mo brooks is one of the individuals who aimed at mob advocate. That just wouldn't one quick follow up on that. Of course you impeached former president trump over his his role and we had a trial about that. We are now going to have a select committee. That's going to investigate the events of january six. Why file and of course. The justice department has a very aggressive investigation going into the events of january. Sixth why do we need your lawsuit on top of the ongoing investigations by the justice department and congress and the house to have accountability for what happened. Certainly it's accountability. That i want donald trump and others have for what they did to me as i was trying to count every american's vote and have them certified as well as the terror and trauma that i am my colleagues and the police officers suffered so i i don't think one efforts excludes another effort. I don't think you can hold donald trump accountable enough for everything that he's done. And so yes it goes into many realms they're certainly the criminal investigations that are taking place. There was the impeachment trial that convinced me as a manager that donald trump was responsible. There's the select committee which will also look at not only how this happened..

"Gough. Chief investigative correspondent for yahoo news. I'm dan kleinman editor-in-chief of yahoo news. And i'm victoria but study a fellow at the brennan center for justice and it is appropriate in a way that we are having swallow on the pond this week. This is the sixth month verse. Serie of the january sixth assault on the us capital. It's an event that continues to dominate our politics ongoing investigations by the justice department. Nancy pelosi is just created this special committee to investigate the events of january sixth. A lot of questions about how far it can go in advancing the ball but swallow has been so in the middle of all of this. It'll be good to hear his perspective. I yeah i was gonna say swale. Well does have a knack for being in the middle of the high profile issues and controversies. He of course was a impeachment manager in the second impeachment which was revolved around the january. Six assault he has big big player in the intelligence committee. Investigation to russia. That's how i got to know him quite a bit in those also. He wasn't picked as a manager for the first impeachment which was a disappointment to him. He's filed this lawsuit as you mentioned and he now has. This has this book. He is not however going to be a member of nancy. Pelosi select committee to investigate the january six assault. That's one of the things that is happening now as well. The members of that committee have been chosen. Another regular on the podcast. Jamie raskin is a member. Maybe we'll get a chance to talk to him. Of course liz. Cheney this is really. The remarkable thing that happened is that nancy pelosi did select liz cheney who until fairly recently had been the third ranking republican in the house and of course from a storied an important republican family the cheney family so that was interesting. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out but a lot of questions about how much this can really how far they can really go. Man will subpoenas be honored by the select committee. We even though reid victorian who if anybody mccarthy's appoint to canoe as much as people put a lot of hope in the idea that this january six select committee is going to be an effective messenger and cool of accountability for uncovering and understanding. What happened on january. six. Let's face facts. I it's likely to get mired. In partisan mud fights the way house committees almost inevitably do its ability to actually get. New information is going to be blocked to a certain degree by doj. Who's gonna wanna be protecting their criminal prosecutions and who are likely to be trying to protect kind of the prerogatives of the executive branch from excessive. You know intensive investigation congressional committees. Whatever their nature have over the course of the last twenty years proven almost comically inept at issuing subpoenas and getting them enforced altogether tied up in a bow. And what is this committee actually going to be able to accomplish. I mean i know. I'm being really kind of negative in harsh air but you.

Patrick's Japan is a political cartoonist space in Switzerland thanks a lot. Patrick. UNCURABLE. Yesterday recess the Geena was arrested. He's known for saving hundreds of lives during the Rwandan genocide and for his story being told in the Film Hotel Rwanda Rwanda authorities have charged recess beginning with terrorism arson and murder but critics say the arrest is politically motivated. We're joined now by cloud gotTa Bouquet Claude lived through the genocide and today is an activist with the African great. Lakes Action Network Claude first of all, tell us about Paul says the by Geena for those who don't know who he is, what this story and how has he seen in Rwanda today? He's story is that all in up stander during the genocide he used the hotel that he managed to shelter over a thousand people which was really difficult during that time is of genocide and I have to move houses, multiple times and had to be in hiding. It was not an easy task to hide people. So it was a wonderful thing they during the genocide but now as a critic of the government of Rwanda, he's been painted with the same broad rush that the paint every critic with every person that comes out of the critics is branded as a genocide deny your even somebody like. That helped people during the genocide they are branded as terrorists and enemies of the country. So criticizing the President Kagami is equated with being an enemy of the state POLKA. Gami has been president of Rwanda for quite some time has Paul recess a begin I've been critical of him for a he has for at least the last fifteen years. He's been one of the leading critics of Polka gone me especially when it comes to atrocities in the Congo where. Six, million people have died as a result of one day in Uganda's invasion into the country and all kinds of human rights. Abuses publicist to begin has spoken on that. He's spoken against the dictatorship in Rhonda. He's spoken against this staged elections. He's basically been a very open and wanted the loudest critics of the government over wonder. Was Paul Richness, the beginning arrested in Rwanda or outside of Rwanda he was arrested outside of Wanda he was on a flight to Dubai and somewhere along the riot. Stopped in coughed and taken away to Rwanda but that was not his destination not on his Tinari. What are the charges that they're wanding authorities are leveling at Paul Roos Uva Geena are they saying that he's currently a terrorist and involved in arson and murder or are they saying that he was actually somebody who is involved back in the genocide during the genocide? No the accusation is was happening today they're accusing him of financing an armed group that's fighting against Rwandan government. Of course, he is a member of a coalition of which this group is a part of in when you look back at Rwanda's history, all gummy came to power in a similar manner where he was a part of an armed group that came into gopher, the country, the RPF, they Rwandan Patriotic Front, which is in power today. However wanders reacted to Paul was just the beginning of the rest. There is a lot of outrage of course what those who support the government they are celebrating but you know the place where you really see Rwandans expressing themselves freely on social media in you can tell there's a lot of outrage on this arrest because to lots of Rwandans the government itself is criminal. So, what happens now? I believe two things are gonNA. Happen One. The government's GONNA run smear campaign against him as they do with all critics. They are going to run a trial which a lot of the politically motivated trials in Wanda are neither free nor fair. We're basically judged by the president gummy however I think the international community is going to play a big role in it. What we've seen in the past is for this political cases win the international community has stood up and really shown injustice but the government over Wanda there one of government has eventually released some of the critics that it has arrested and tried and held. Club got the Buca is an activist with the African Great Lakes Action. Network. Thanks a lot. Thank you. If you spent any time in the last several months daydreaming about traveling to a distant land for fun. You've probably also spent some time cringing at the risks and hassle involved three members of our newsroom have just cleared those Kovic travel hurdles and are here to dish about it Lydia leader or H-have Lancia and Reo Saran all recently flew from the United States to relocate for reporting assignments Lydia's in Athens Arielle is in Tel Aviv and horray is in city. Now Lydia start us off how is planning your international travel different than it might have been pre cove it. Hey, Carol. So for me, one of the things I had to think about was because there are no direct flights. From Boston to Greece was where my layover was going to be because there are restrictions right now and what flights can come in to Greece from different countries. The other thing that was a little different than usual was forty eight hours before travelling I had to fill out these forms that are now required by the Greek government for every traveler regardless of where they're coming from. So I had to give them some biographical information and some you know information about where it was coming from where he would be staying once I entered the country and using that information they generated a unique qr code for me that they eventually scanned once they got into the country are how about you? Hey Carol so I actually had my ticket months in advance, and then when this whole Cova crisis came and I saw that flights were stopping I was getting a little worried and I saw that my airline was canceling flights. And surprise surprise ten days before it was cancelled am. Airline did end booking a flight on another line, which was united. Or Hey. You're headed to Mexico City what was the planning for that? Hey, everybody actually I think it was a lot easier than lydian aerial because the Mexican and the US government's. placed. Any restrictions on flights between the two countries? So it's just a matter of looking the flight and making sure I had a really good mask. It was difficult for me because I have a pet who I have a dog, her name is Shula which in Spanish that means pork chop and she. She couldn't travel in a Kennel as luggage because of the I couldn't find a single airline that is doing that right now between the two countries. So I spoke with a counsellor in Massachusetts and she gave me a letter certifying a out during the pandemic has become a emotional support animal for me and I sent that along with a veterinarian records to American Airlines, which is airline that. I took a of time. So your travels booked and in Jorges case, you have your dog registered then each of you gets to the airport and and what happened there. Let's start with you Ario. So I was actually pretty impressed arriving at Logan Airport in Boston. There's a lot of social distancing and people were wearing masks and you know benches had banners on them trying to limit seating. I was actually really impressed and then I got onto my flight to Newark and the flight itself was packed shoulder to shoulder now one MTC. So it was surprising that in the airport, there was so strict distancing measures, but on the flight itself while the guidelines and precautions were pretty much thrown out the window. What about you Lydia? What happened at the airport? Yeah. Arielle actually had some of the same experiences and thoughts that you did my first flight to Frankfurt was unlike yours pretty much empty. I, mean everyone kind of had their own road to themselves, and there were announcements about covert related measures that we kept hearing on the flight..

brand gable able it is so good to have you with us today it is hurry for today hurry for today indeed because it's a beautiful day it is a gorgeous fall day here in the Pacific northwest in all the all the colors turned yes and or are turning and it's sunny and chill but not not cold right yes it's that perfect sweater weather where you just want to have a sweatshirt or your scarf or something like that snuggle up in yeah that's perfect I love it it's really nice it's my favorite time of year do you know why why because it's my birthday time whole reason we have the month of October is to celebrate me right of course of course that's your mom might object to that my mom and my grandma and probably millions of other people hey whatever but it is it is definitely my favorite time of the year because I just I love the the crystal the crispness of the air and the colors and yeah it's love everything about the fall yeah it's I don't know it's always so sad too because in Oregon this time of year is always so very fleeting you know you just have the brief window where the weather is that kind of perfect fall weather in the the colors the leaves that doesn't last very long so so it's kind of when you get one of those perfect days you really want to savor it because you know it's not GonNa last and pretty soon it's just going to be the endless grey drizzle of enter the Pacific northwest that everyone knows and hates not everybody hates it but yeah it can get old it can usually by about March after endless days of rain well hey so Oh speaking of endless days of rain yes I'm sure that's a really great segue for what we're GonNa talk about today Okay I I don't I don't know how I don't know either but that's okay we're GONNA go with it because it's there now so so what we're GonNa talk about today is now that I'm Mike now that we're like sitting at the microphone and Mike this is a morbid question it is but it's also so very important in it's it's something even though it's morbid that we should be thinking about more often right and that question is if you only had six months to live love what would you do the idea to do this episode came from the fact that you and I are both starting lead genesis process groups at our church You're having your first meeting tonight I'm having my first meeting tomorrow morning we're both very excited about that but in the process we're going through the process to and because that's how genesis works and so as we are going to your homework one of the questions that came up is what are your current priorities like how do you spend the bulk of your time and it was kind of in regards to to the areas of entertainment and family and work in ministry and time with God that kind of thing and so you had to list out the way you are currently spending your time like what what are your priorities now this is what you would like them to be and then the follow up question is that if you if you had six months yeah but what would you do how would you live and and that was really poignant question because this is the second time I've gone through genesis and I think that the first time that I answered this question I'd have to go back and look but I think that the first time I went through through at like eight years ago I don't think I answered it as honestly maybe I think I was trying to be honest but I think I was still also trying to give the right answer do you know what I mean yeah and I was tempted to do that you know I was tempted to give this answer that would you know be oh I think they're looking for this or my answer ought to be this I think that's what it is like well my answer should be that this is how I been it's been all six months just like studying my Bible and dry near God detected and that's not really how I would spend my final six months it's no and and that certainly isn't how I'm spending my time now so it was it was a really interesting chance to kind of self reflect a little bit uh-huh So do you WanNa go first or should I go I I can go first if you want okay yeah you know I'm afraid my answer is not very inter- resting largely because the place I I did answer honestly which makes my answer less interesting I think strangely enough mostly because the financial place we're in I would still have to work if I was still capable of working I would still have to work for at least a good chunk of that six months you know just to continue to pay bills and things like that and I definitely have to continue making the life insurance payment you know yes you would but you know there's all the other things too that I'd have to keep up with so I'd have to keep working but it's what I would do with the leftover time you know I definitely wouldn't work any overtime you know I wouldn't set foot inside that building for one in it longer than I I had to I think and anytime after that would be I think I would drop everything else and I would just spend time with family and really try to connect with everybody that I cared about as much as I possibly could for the next six months as well as as well as some of that you know quiet reflection God connection time as well do you do you have it anything in your life where like you would 'cause you sometimes hear the the phrase like you know when you're on your deathbed like you're not going to regret the Times that your house wasn't clean or the hours you didn't work overtime or whatever do you think you would kind of reflect back and go man I wish I would have spent more time doing this thing instead of you know over time or or whatever I don't know the Times that I've spent working overtime it hasn't been because Oh wow I just really enjoy work and I WANNA stay here right yeah you're not a workaholic no so if I'm if I'm continuing to stay at work it's to pay bills yeah so you know sure I regret that stuff because I just as soon not have as many bills I regret that the irs players taxes right yeah well that's the yeah that's the least of our our business but anyway no you know I don't know I don't I don't think I really I I have regrets over some of the choices that I made earlier in life I made some poor choices here and there if I could do it over again yeah I would change those but for the most part like you know where I've spent my time and energy and effort day in and day out put I wouldn't change a thing because whenever I get a chance I'm spending time with the people that I love and I'm investing in them yeah well that's what it's all about so here's a question that you hadn't talked about like hey let's talk about this thing so this is putting you completely on the spot but what would you hope that people would say to you or say about you in a eulogy you know I I would hope that people would say that I did the best I could to love the people that were around me and that I also did the best I could to live my life with integrity and to to live out the things that I see that I believed and to live out the life that that God laid in front of me man outside of those you know if if there's if there's people if the people near me testify to the fact that that I love God and M was committed to him his word and doing the things that he wanted me to do you know that's that's all I need yes so for me this was kind of an interesting exercise because this weekend you know I spent with my mom and I just got back this morning and it was really interesting because this morning I had an opportunity to look through my dad's old Bible uh-huh and my dad has been gone now for twenty two or three years he died in in December of nineteen ninety seven and I can't do math so we'll let the audience figure that one out but you know it's it's been a long a long while since he's been around and so that this morning I was sitting at my mom's office and I was looking through Dad's Bible and it's it was neat to see you know his handwriting and his thoughts on what scripture was saying and and revelations that he was making and some of those things and and then I came across a letter that was all folded up and and muddy and kind of gross looking and it was a letter that I had written today ad two years after he died it was father's Day and I stuck it my mom and brother and I went to dad's graveside that father's Day and I stuck that letter all folded up down next to his headstone kind of in the ground and when we left my mom apparently grabbed that letter and stuck it in depth in Dad's Bible and so I was unfolding at this morning and it's like what in the world what is this and then I read it and it was me just commenting on life without dad and I was pregnant with Evan at the time was talking about that and how I was worried because our first pregnancy we had lost and in but I was also excited because because he had been such a good example of a dad and and he and mom together had been such good examples of parents and a married couple and stuff and then as I was going through his Bible some more I found an accounting that dad had written of the two weeks while his mom was in the hospital dying from complications due to diabetes and it was it was just this poignant retaliating I mean because it was all I mean there was some you know some personal narrative in there and some comments and and thoughts and feelings about it and staff and but it was also this kind of factual retelling of events but it was neat because there were moments where he's talking about his his mom he grew up my dad grew up Mormon is so you know as those mom is Mormon and so there were times when he just got to sit next to his mom and pray with her and pray over her and they became prayer buddies during that two weeks and he was talking about just spending that time with her and I remember that time super well 'cause this was shortly before we got married and I was there for that final week and I remember going in and out of grandma's room and I remember reading just a ton of you've of the Bible tour and praying over her while she was sleeping and just holding her hand and telling her how much Jesus loved her you know and all these things and and regretting the fact that I hadn't gotten to spend time with her and I hadn't really gotten to know her I never knew my grandma as a person like she was just she was always kind of in the background and we didn't spend a lot of time with my dad's side of the family and when we did she was just kind of a wallflower she just Kinda took care of food and and made sure that there was candy in the in the candy dish because that's what Graham I did in the eighties and and she I and I loved her I loved her very much and she loved us kids very much but there's regret that oh I didn't get a chance to really get to know her and so I'm reading this this accounting of my dad talking about the time that his mom died and and and here my dad has died also and and so it was just this lake home my gosh like it just hit me this morning really hard that we have no idea the impact that we have on people and we have no idea the time that we have left and as I was driving home to two and a half hour drive and I was praying and I was like God i Just WanNa live my time well I just to be useful with it and I said I was like God even if it's like even if the next two hours of are the last two hours of my life you know if I die on the way home I want to spend that two hours well and wisely and and all I could do for that two hours I just kind of intermittently cried and prayed Eden it's kind of all I could do because it was really emotional this morning and I clearly still emma kind of choking up and so as I I was as I was answering this question in our genesis book what I was thinking about is is kind of the same thing in terms of like I would drop everything thing that I could you know that was peripheral like the first thing I wrote down was I would put down the damn phone you know because my cellphone eats up so much stupid time I spend far too much time playing games and checking social media and listening to listening to podcasts but here's the thing I'm listening to podcasts that don't edify build me up they don't challenge me they don't encourage my fate they don't grow me as a person they just entertain me which not that entertainment is bad I think we need entertainment and I.
