Now, did you hear, I don't know, you may be slept or did something else with your life this weekend so I don't know if you heard the update that the woman that he paid for the abortion had has another child with him, but the one that the woman that he does not know and has never heard of.

Tristan Snell on New York's Fight Against the Trump Crime Family
"You prosecuted Trump university. So the stuff that you've been shouting on Twitter. It's just stuff that anybody from New York has said, this guy has been a crook, his whole life. Yeah, unfortunately, we had more experience with him here than the rest of the country got to find out about the Trump crime family. So yeah, the New York AG's office so far is two for two in bringing cases against against the trumps with Trump university and then the Trump foundation case. Now we have the big trumpet organization case, the Tisch James is bringing here for rampant fraud and the values properties. And we'll see how that one goes. I am everybody's expectations. I don't think the case is going to suddenly, you know, we're not going to see justice tomorrow. I know that it's always everybody's frustration. It's how slow these things go. But I do actually think that we're going to see that case progress over the course of the next year or so. And I actually think it will eventually settle. I don't think Trump's going to let that go to trial because he might lose everything. I think he's going to end up cutting a very big check to make that case go away, but I guess we'll see what happens.

A Fake News Story Went Viral at a Doug Mastriano Campaign Event
"All time favorite people is joining the program to help us walk through one of the most frustrating fake artificial social media narratives that popped up over the weekend. So it's well known that we are big fans of Doug mastriano. And Doug mastriano has been accused wrongly four weeks. This is a building synthetic narrative of him being an anti semite. That is disgusting. It is a lie from the pit of hell. He's running up against Shapiro, who is Jewish, so they're really trying to play up this narrative, and it is wrong. It's disgusting anti semitism will not be tolerated by anybody and the idea that they're trying to act as if mastriano tolerates it is just awful. It's disgusting. So therefore, not there for then what ended up happening is Doug mosh torano does this event. He's running for governor of Pennsylvania for those of you in the national audience, very important race. And he does a prayer. Now, for those of you that might be in Presbyterian or episcopalian or Catholic circles, I know it might be unusual to see people raise their hands when they pray, no offense to our wonderful Catholics out there. But it's very common in Pentecostal circles. In fact, it happened all the time and it is done to feel the Holy Spirit and it is a physical representation to show that you're touching up towards the divine. It's not only appropriate. In fact, there are verses that support it. And in evangelical circles in particular, not just Pentecostal circles, but in kind of cost it's done more than not. The point being Christian circles, not a nomination, Protestant circles, it's done all the time. And so what ends up happening is this snake Tristan Snell comes out on Twitter and says this is a Nazi salute. People praying at a Doug mastriano campaign event in Pennsylvania. Democracy is literally on the ballot in 2022. It ends up getting three .6 million views on Twitter.

But we're also on Facebook and we do some tiktoks and we've got an Instagram account and things like that. But primarily it's a YouTube channel and I wasn't around when it first started, but it started as. It was noticed that YouTube is a pretty terrible place to learn about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. And so they set out to provide a faithful voice. And this was like 2016, maybe? Oh yeah, probably before that, probably like 2015, something like that. And that's now there's some great, I think people figured out there's some great resources like yours, but yeah. There's a lot of great stuff. But back then, it was like anti anti. Here's another. Yeah, yeah. I mean, there are more great creators out there. I'd still say that antagonistic material about our faith is still overwhelming on YouTube. But so we wanted to kind of provide relatable, fun, latter day saint faithful voice that could kind of talk about it started out as talking more about cultural quirks and more having fun and just having a fun talk show for young Latter day Saints to watch on YouTube, which didn't exist at the time, as far as I'm aware.

No, no, it should be raining subpoenas because all of these people have to be hauled in, not only before Congress, the J 6 select committee, but before federal grand juries, because it looks like I agree with Tristan, it looks like perhaps the largest conspiracy in the history of the world. I mean, does that sound hyperbolic? Yeah, but I think it needs to be investigated. It's not a coincidence that all of the Trump lackeys and sycophants are purging what is extremely important evidence regarding the insurrection. They're purging it, destroying it, deleting it. Why? Because they don't want to be caught as part of the conspiracy, but they're going to be caught.

"Things about how they were like trying to find a safe place for them to have their rendezvous while while they were trying to find you know people's apartments places to Have these encounters. They were leaving behind digital traces of all this all over the place and all of that stopped Now between greenberg's cooperation. And i'm guessing third-party subpoenas that were probably served on entities like van mo. Big got everything which is usually terrific. These cases they've got everything criminals. These days cannot see. Cannot hi there evidence very well unless they actually stay off anything digital and operating cash i e. They operate like a criminal thirty years ago but as soon as they start using the internet. All of that stuff's going to come out at some point and it has here and then you get wire fraud charges to and yes exactly you. You just ramp your opening up and what's interesting is reading through this it now. Retroactively explains some of matt gaetz responses to these allegations. Right first of all that that he raped an underage girl he you have to deny that right because if you don't your choices are to say you didn't know which is no excuse and to say that you think the age of consent should be lower which is not also a good path to go down so you have to deny that but you know when he carefully chose his words and denied that he was using that sugar daddy web site. We can now see that. Yeah that's true. He probably greenberg in it. For example was greenberg was the pet greenberg was along. Who is actually going and finding these and finding these women and figuring out what they were going to charge and so forth and so on and then the other people these other men were then in turn paid so the greenberg was the conduit for everything he was the organizer of the central figure in this in this group of matt of whom gates is one of them. So yeah gates is telling the truth that but you're right. He's he's telling a very selected set of a pieces of truth right and and Which makes the assertion that he's being blackmailed by someone. That much weirder but but yeah that those we can go back and look now and see that those. Those words carefully chose and you know With i mean how. How do you go to your lawyers you say. How do i respond to these allegations. Right and that's the kind of thing that they that they tell you coach. He's been coached to do this. I'll give you a. Here's another good example. Here he had been previously you know he had been previously stating things like and right now we increasingly it doesn't matter you. He basically versus trying to categorically say that he had never had sex with any of these women he stopped saying that notably things. He's not saying his denials anymore. Initially back the spring. He was saying that he hadn't had sex with any women in a involved ritual greenburg. Stop saying that. I think it's going to be sacked. I think he said something along the lines of you know they're trying to go after me for being naughty or something like that like right now. He's he's he's quietly not quietly started not saying things that he used to say back in the spring because he's coached his he's got defense counsel and they are coaching him on what to say and whatnot. But say new putting some of these other things out there to make it look like he's denying things because it's optic we politically necessary for him to continue trying to deny but he's kicking things that he actually can deny but they end up being me worse just because he's not the one who found them on the sugar daddy. Website does not mean that he didn't commit various crimes which to me implies he did do the other things you know. I'll i'll add just one other thing. Which is that to a criminal. Prosecution feels like male. That's a heaping. See yes he thinks. He's being blackmailed by the feds. That's who is being blackmailed by telling him things like because the crunchies under right now is that they're trying to. It appears by me reading between the lines. I don't have this clearly verified but it would appear for all the world that one of the things it's holding everything up right now. They're trying to get the cooperate. they're trying to get him to plead guilty and to cooperate with prosecutors. When your choice set is cooperate. And you'll get more lenient sentence. War continue to fight this. And we're going to throw the book at you to a criminal. That fuels like blackmail..

"Communist. No mr green. Communism is just a red herring like all members of the oldest profession. I'm a capitalist. Hello and welcome to muller she road. I'm your host g you can call me alison gill now. Though i don't work for the government so after hatch act. I was smashing the crotch act. But i don't have to anymore. I'm coming to you from a hotel on the road. So it's a little bit echo. In here i apologize for that. I have a couple of stories for you but then i wanted to play a couple of interviews. I had earlier this week. You probably may have already heard them if you haven't. I really want you to listen to them. That's why i'm dropping him in this show as well. I talked to alexander vitamin absolute hero. And we talk a lot about How what we saw during the first impeachment is connected to the second impeachment and cove it and you know. He just draws these incredible through lines through everything the entirety of the conspiracy. And it's it's really good. And then i also talked tristan snell this week. Who is a reporter. Who who has a lot of inside information on what's going on with men in the matt gaetz world so he's gonna be our sabotage today because i'll come back and i'll do my pick for the fantasy indictment league or maybe i'll do the picks before we listened to the interview. See you have them going into their. But anyway it's it's going to be a really good show with some incredible interviews. But i do have some news. So let's jump in with just the facts all right first up as it turns out that house democrats. The oversight committee can get some of trump's tax records from maziarz which is his accounting firm. This has been going on as you know for. Probably since the kitchen days it's been going on for so long the. Us house should be able to access some donald. Trump's tax returns through that subpoena touma czars and this is according to a federal judge in dc. And this was ruling on wednesday. It's a resounding loss for trump given that the accounting records appear to cover financial information that the former president has fiercely protected and it's a major step toward resolving the long running fight over access to trump's tax records and don't confuse this with the house ways and means fight because if you remember going back to the miller she wrote days we had a bunch of stuff going up through the courts. We had a subpoena from house. Oversight czars for trump's taxes and accounting papers. But we also had a subpoena by the house ways and from the house ways and means committee and the house ways and means committee is the one that shall furnish the taxes when we talk about that one hundred year old law that says when they ask they the. Irs shall furnish the taxes. and so. that's not this right so when you know people are kinda conflating the two. I've seen a lot of people. Say why are they only given part of these taxes over to the house oversight committee they. It's the law says that they shall phantom over. That's no no. That's not this this day actually legislative purpose here and the judges sort of split split down the middle right. They say hey. You can have some tax returns but you can't have eight years worth okay. You're doing oversight. When he was president you wanna do oversight of his emoluments and his dc hotel. Dc international hotel in downtown dc. Okay cool you can have. The tax returns the pertain to those years. Twenty seventeen two thousand. Eighteen can't have anything from before he was president but this is a huge win constitutionally speaking and of course trump has already filed to appeal this decision. It it's gonna take more time. And i know people are upset but i have to again like i said when we went through this with mazari's and the ways and means committee. It doesn't really. This is for oversight purposes. Long-haul long-term oversight purposes is in a criminal investigation into his taxes. The manhattan district attorney has his taxes. The doj has his taxes. Like we have to. You know we're not waiting to prosecute him based on this makes sense. So they'll be like oh. He's never going to be held accountable. These particular subpoenas from bazaars from house oversight in house ways and means isn't to hold him accountable right make sense to get the truth out. I mean we can't impeach him anymore we could you can but you know the senate won't convict. That's why they didn't convict him on. The second impeachment was because you can't they said we don't believe you can impeach and convict a person. Who isn't the president anymore you can. That was their excuse not to but anyway with the case. Let me read here from cnn. The cases a continuation of the house tax returns case that traveled up to the supreme court. Now district judge summit meta has weighed in the house For the house request trump's financial records against the standards laid up supreme court in its seven two ruling last year without supreme court. Opinion in mind met upheld parts of the house. Subpoena that were targeted at the lawmakers stated need for considering legislation and and Around four emoluments clause issues and the gsa lease at the trump hotel in the old post office building. The committee can also access some financial documents from two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen.

"And welcome to the daily beans for friday august thirteenth. Twenty one today new documents reviewed by abc news. Give us a more solid picture of matt gaetz crimes. A gop strategist is arrested. In minnesota for sex trafficking minors rand. Paul discloses his wife's couvert related stock purchases. Sixteen months passed the deadline. Trump has appealed the mazari's house oversight committee ruling. The pentagon is deploying three thousand troops to afghanistan to evacuate americans and rachel motto is considering leaving. Msnbc i'm your host alison gill. Hello everyone. I'm in los angeles if it's a bit echoey in here that's because i'm in a very big echoey hotel room with not a lot of soundproofing so i apologize for the sound quality. I am going to have a pretty big show for you today. Later on to be talking to tristan smell. He actually worked on the trump university fraud case with the attorney. General in new york. And we're going to be going over the matt gaetz updates the drop today and one of our patrons david from brooklyn will be joining me to read the good news because as we all know. Dana is out tonight. She has her show on fire island in new york. So you're in the neighborhood. Go check that out. You know there is a headline in here. That i'm probably not gonna go into depth on too much. But trump has appealed the house oversight committee ruling for years now. We had two things trying to get his taxes right. We had the ms ours. I should say the maziarz documents we had the house. Oversight committee subpoenaed them and then we had the house ways and means committee that subpoenaed them the house ways and means committee is the one where the law says that the irs shall furnish. That's just for the house ways and means committee that is not the law for the oversight committee and so the judge. Recently as we know yesterday decided they could have trump's maziarz documents related to his dc downtown hotel and potential emoluments but only while he was in office and as we expected. Trump has appealed that ruling so that will probably go up to the next level. We will see although amy barrett today decided that the supreme court was not going to hear the indiana university vaccine case brought by that guy who brought citizens united member. How we were worried about that. So you know. I guess a we shred of understanding the actual law presented by. Amy conybeare it today. So indiana university will be allowed to mandate vaccines. That's a big decision going forward in. I as i'm sure we would have seen and we'll see probably future cases but now we have a little bit of precedent on that. Although it doesn't really set precedent to not hear a case you know you know what. I'm saying you know what i mean anyway. We have a lot.

"Will recognize because that's christopher steele joint. It is okay now. It's a risk consultancy. That's what it says. know what. Now what does that mean exactly show. So what we do. Where in a i guess. A relatively selective obscure corner of the professional services were a particularly in europe. Uk western economies. There are plenty of people who are paid to advise businesses on. What they're doing. You might pay a lawyer to advise you on your legal issues. You might band accountant to visor on your financial tax compliance especially is advised people on political and regulatory risk so that sounds a bit kind of obscure but what i mean is if a big international company has made an investment in an emerging market somewhere in africa for example there are going to be all kinds of risks that i'm not easy to get a handle on. So let's say you're a mining business while it's the minister of industry of minerals in that country notoriously corrupt answer. This next speculation that you'll business will be paying some kind of backhander. All is there a risk of sanctions. You know these days sanctions are a very significant issue that you might be a completely legitimate and compliant business upgrading to the highest standards. But something that you are involved with has a co ownership with. Let's say a russian business. The you have no control daiva that has been sanctioned for its involvement in the war in ukraine so as a kind of consultancy business intelligence consultancy what we specialize in doing helping people understand the risk to their business and sometimes we come after a problem is erupted and we help people find out what has gone wrong so we we we have people around the place you know people like myself who worked in different countries that good networks that we can pick up the phone we can go and meet people you can kind of get a little understanding under the surface of some of the challenges that people face has been booming since The dossier came out or you know is a big question. I think so i mean. Obviously that the reason that otis is has become better known than it was you know. Five years ago is because a project that we took which which commercially was not very important to business turned out to be politically very important and this was a project to look at the russian connections all the person who eventually became president donald trump at the time he was just a candidate and i reiterate violas listeners. That a couple of things which Up maybe obvious but but have been sometimes misunderstood that we took this project on back back in the day. I twenty fifteen twenty sixteen originally At a time when donald trump was one of a very wide field of republican candidates that right at the beginning of this price says the people who wanted to understand about trump's links to russia were actually other republicans obey at that then transferred onto the clinton campaign and that we did this work from the completely nonpartisan perspective so a lot of people are targeted. My colleague chris steele and assumed that he is. Somehow i kind of operative in the us political system. Nothing could be further from the truth. Crystal is a british guy. He's never lived in america. He you know. By definition he has no way to vote in america and we approached this project like any other kind of professional project that our ability to extract and identify kind of interesting information that might not be available to others and give that to our clients. That's what we bring to the table so we were doing that just as we would with any other project. We are not trying to kind of shea the issue now i. I'm the the. I accept that there are literally millions of people in america who would just reject. Absolutely what i just said. I would assume unfortunately because of the kind of political situation that where part of some kind of you know corrupt this information project but coming back to your question greg. Has it helped or hindered up business. I think what it's Is it has put us in a certain place. We didn't choose to be in that place. You know like. I say we. We never chose to take sides in us politics. But having said that i think that Two things kind of came out of that dossier project. One was that in spite of an incredible effort by trump and his supporters. To discredit christie's work and the workable business intelligence the fundamental findings from the dossier the the circle trump dossier have actually been blown out. And let's just quickly go through those. So the first thing was that the russians were interfering in the two thousand. Sixteen election does no debate about leading. Nobody's now absolutely has been demonstrated including the senate intelligence. The republican led senate intelligence. Could second point was that it was putin was directing now and again that the inquiry the senate intelligence committee to so much evidence for that holiday but back in two thousand sixteen. No one you this right. The third thing is that this intervention is interference directed by putin was being done to promote the candidacy of donald trump again. This is now absolutely beyond any question. It has been demonstrated by a wide array of subsequent investigations but in two thousand sixteen. Nobody knew this possibly one or two people deep inside the us intelligence community but that nobody in the public wealth new this and then a false thing. Which i think is the key. The full key findings was that elements of the trump campaign actively colluding cooperating whatever term art. We might use with those efforts. So let's just take the very very straightforward example manifold pullman info was in direct connection with constantine kalinic who has been clearly demonstrated to russian intelligence operative. Now i love. Your listeners will be completely on board with these things. You know no debate about it. But it's important to restate that because i think there has been as an extraordinary effort to try to discredit this work to suggest that somehow what visted was itself a brush. Disinformation appraising was completely untrue Whereas what i would say is back. Two thousand sixteen. If we could get an a time machine go back there and we would be told the full facts. You know you'd fall off your chair. You wouldn't believe it was possible and it's only you know what's happened since then has has changed the way you look at these things so the effect it's had on our business eight has had an effect of of kind of being split into this partisan divide but i think that's that's actually the way america is now. I didn't say that with any sugar. I have no problem with the republican party. I personally i'm probably on the liberal side of politics but it doesn't matter to me You know. I didn't when we as a business cooperate with clients. We don't awesome about political leanings. But i think what's happened. Is that you know. This kind of division has paid the final point Make is that. It does seem to me that the mainstream of the us business community has has kind of tried to distance itself from trump particularly after the events of the six january. So i'm not sure that it's a bad thing that we We have been seen very negatively by kind of very strong trump partisans. Not that something. We chose On behalf of freedom loving patriotic americans. I hit my hat to you guys. And i hope that your your partner there Stay safe. this is important work and we're grateful for it. I mean we those of us who were trying to figure out what was happening from relatively early period of time relied on that extensively and as you say It bore out. I think one of the problems of the media made obviously the the. We call the dossier. It's a series of of intelligence reports which were never meant to be made public in the where exactly and we can argue until the cows come home about whether or not that was a good idea to reveal this entire thing in its entirety but the mainstream media. You know you put a sally or You know lascivious detailer detail on the. I think it's the first the first or the second page of the documents that's all. They're going to pay attention to. They've got their story. It's over after that they're not gonna keep reading which is You know that's the sad state of the mainstream media in in this country which the line between news and entertainment is is just completely blurred but As i said we're we..

"We have no way to change that situation. I mean we literally throwing trillions of dollars at the problem we have lost thousands of brave soldiers in stabilization and other operations way we have we have tried every type of development a humanitarian aid. All these. I'm not saying that. We should just walk away and let the placing. But i think we have to recognize that the attempt to create a liberal democracy based on western values is not going to succeed. Maybe it might happen in fifty hundred years identity. But he's not gonna six eight now and we have to recognize that an if i think back just to sort of finish here i think i was in afghanistan roughly ten years after nine eleven. So twenty. Ten twenty eleven. We were still talking about how securing afghanistan was about securing london. New york washington d. c. And that was actually notre securing. The big cities of the west was something that happened in two thousand one in in a very limited on very successful series of special operations. The years that followed was Was a series of displacement activities. That ultimately have not produced an outcome that you know that is that is useful to western countries. Hopefully we learned the lesson but we never seem to learn seem to learn very well. Because you know whilst iraq funded afghanistan but the thing that to me is is very striking in in twenty eleven at a point when surely these lessons could have been learned You know we piled into libya and now liberia's in a state of kale effectively split into two kind of statelets all of the things. That should have been obvious from that. The situation in iraq and the situation. I've kinda stoned a play. I'm not saying they're identical but same lessons appear to be relevant from situation in libya and yet the same mistakes stakes remained. I've been thinking a lot lately about the first gulf war. Because at that time i was a i was a senior in high school and i just turned eighteen and everyone was like. Oh we're going to get drafted. And i mean that obviously didn't happen but so i wasn't really equipped. I think to look at it from a geopolitical sense. But now i think especially now looking at at the situation in iraq and afghanistan and these wars that never seemed to end and also with putin in the crimea. Go to rain. What happened in the first gulf war was that saddam hussein invaded a foreign country in kuwait. Mostly to because he didn't want to pay them the money hero them and nato who was the allied coalition that george h w bush form together. Said you're not allowed to do that. We went in sent him back to iraq and that was it and then that ended his territorial ambitions. He was still there. Which was sucked if you lived in iraq. I'm sure but on the other hand when you get rid of the guy. We see now what what happened. So it's it's it's really a damned if you do damned if you don't i mean none of the options are pretty agree. We had no business going to iraq. Anyway i think i think that bush's guys just wanted to do it and for some reason. Take him out but there was a lot of talk at the time because the borders in the middle east anywhere drawn up after the first world war. They're not really Whatever like mozell has more in common with damascus than it does with iraq. There's there there was some talk of. Let's that iraq really should be three different countries. Stand at the north. And this and that do you think that was. I didn't do it because i think because turkey. Mostly what do you think is the solution. They're ultimately does that. Make any sense things can happen. Well i think. I think you've touched on on a range of very important points and you know. I spent a lot of my career in in the kind of middle east region. I'm actually an arabic speaker. So i sort of that helped me integrate myself. With with that part of the world there is an issue about Kind of. I don't wanna say fake borders because you know that real to the people that live that but but but countries that maybe lack of certain level of kind of integrity in the minds of the people that live there but having said that something that struck me particularly of my time working raw. Is how nationalist a lot of iraqis. They they feel very strongly. But you know it may only be a country that's existed for society is roughly but people feel quite strongly that this is a real country. I'm we feel about it. So i think i think they. You know you're mentioning that the first gulf war the ninety one gulf for is very important. Because i think that was literally the high point of the kind of the western atlantic alliance when it won the code wall. It then proves that it could. It could destroy what was supposedly a sierras army. Maybe not russia but it was his army at it destroyed them in about three hours. It was a cakewalk. And it's almost as if that was the problem that the ease of that victory allowed a kind of level of hubris misunderstanding. And i'm not just talking about america across western countries And i think it led to two things one was that the western countries became increasingly distracted by substate challenges so obviously one of those terrorism and and it is not iced identity this in any way to suggest that the problem with terrorism was was trivial because by definition what happened at the nine eleven attacks was was nothing bad. You know nothing but epic. It was an incredible and all full attack on on america's soil. It bugs in times of loss of life but in terms of the you know the violation of american survey but i think the countries in the western alliance and america particularly failed to keep an eye on why issues that mattered and so during the period that america britain to some extent you know australia from a range of kind of nato western allies. Were getting stuck with these kind of endless counterinsurgency struggles and ultimately not winning. We were not winning those fights probably because we didn't know what the end state was. We didn't know what we wanted to win. But while that was going on. Russia and china in particular were learning lessons. They're looking at how we failed. They were looking at the weaknesses of their own. their military's let's not forget that the iraqi military was very very close to russia. It had a kind of soviet Kind of concession conception of operations and the china also had various links to the sort of the old players in the middle east so you a lot of them were that was going on in russia and china looking at the west struggles and thinking what we learned from this. You know what are the weaknesses. What are the kind of strategic gains. That might come out of this and so while we were kind of battling these sort of ankle level problems which ally you know again. I'm not trivializing. But they were issues. There are not strategic existentialist threat to our country's you had to global pows slowly building up and russia. You could argue. Twenty four team. Was that moment when they struck you know they took crimea and they took it in a way that was was that was basically a brilliant special forces operation people one sure is this an invasion or is it some kind of weird political demonstration but at the end of the day. Crimea is not controlled by russia. They built a bridge onto mainland russia. You know who knows how that ends but right now. Ukraine has no serious means of regaining that territory. At the same time. China china recognizes weaknesses in terms of its navy and has created a blue water navy so fast time basically.

"Back with arthur snow now. I wanna talk about your personal experience because it's really fascinating in your time at the foreign and commonwealth office. You're posted zimbabwe nigeria yemen iraq and afghanistan and then to trinidad and tobago. We were the high commissioner. You're also the deputy head of counterterrorism the ceo and yet. You're somehow younger than i am. I feel like i've just i i i've been misusing my time here. I started in high school. So of all the places that you've been. What's your what's your favorite. I would guess yemen based on an interview. That i heard of you. But you're absolutely right greg. Yes yemen yemen. Of course now. In two thousand twenty one people hit yemen. And i think of starvation civil war disease children dying in the thousands and in it's a terrible tragedy but yemen is an amazing country for those not familiar. It's the southern shore of the raven. Peninsula it's a country with an amazing history. It has beautiful architecture. It has a mosaic of different cultures within that one country it has an incredible history and it also has a landscapes that you would almost like kind of landscapes you see in a in a star wars movie. You know incredible mountains canyons wildlife. You name it. It's a beautiful beautiful country. I was very lucky to live there at a time of relative stability. I mean yemen has always faced these these challenges of Strife but i was able to travel around the country to see a lot of. It's kind of majestic beauty and in it remains a has a very kind of powerful hold on me. sounds high. hope everything's settled so one day able to travel to these places. Well yeah i mean it. Yemen is totally it it. It's kind of like it's the place that tourism needs to discover. You know i mean. Obviously i'm not going to tell anyone to try going there now but it really is a place that that that would in another parallel universe being amazing kind of tourism hub because it has so much to offer interesting. I wouldn't have. I would have thought that the topography was so interesting now. Zimbabwe before you got there suffered through one of the worst bouts of hyperinflation since basically the days after the second world. War hyperinflation is when the The inflation percentage is so great that they have to keep printing more and more money of higher and higher denominations they wound up printing one hundred trillion dollar Bills which is the highest nominated. Bill ever that was in circulation and eventually the the the whole system collapsed and they had to just use the south african rand combination of foreign currencies. Which i think was that the case when you were there they had to of unfolding so it was You definitely wanted to use it. A foreign currency stola uk pound south african whatever and a wasn't extraordinary tragedy. You had people Corrupt political leaders. Who themselves had access to hard currency lying to the popular saying in zimbabwe dollar. We can be proud kinda creighton. This kind of fake nationalism story but effectively. Yeah they just printed money to the point that it became as worthless as toy money in a monopoly board game you know it. It was just useless paper on and it was an entirely political activity. Because the bob way it's not a hugely wealthy country but it's a country that has Assets it Exploited has gold has diamonds exposure of tobacco and other agri business product. So there's no reason why that currency should be worthless but in the end a corrupt and cynical government made it with listened that was tragic so afghanistan. You're in afghanistan afghanistan is. It's really a tricky place. I've done a lot of reading on. 'cause i was reading a novel that i've just gonna. I needed information about so. I read some scholarly books. Aghanistan one called the fragmentation of afghanistan. And well before. I get to the i was reading a while ago the first sherlock holmes novel right and watson in the sherlock holmes book comes home from afghanistan. Where does soldier. He's been wounded in the war. And so you're reading this like. Oh my god windy right this you know. We tend to forget that the british lost badly in afghanistan. That's right we we'd been at before you might say. We didn't let less than a they call. They call the place. The graveyard of empires so traditionally across the board alexander. The great couldn't get in there and conquering britain couldn't do it. The russians could then the soviet union couldn't do it. They collapsed because of ghanistan. Obviously the united states is now pulling out of afghanistan in this book. The fragmentation of aghanistan. What i read was the situation. There was so chaotic or not even chaotic and narcotic where it's just the chaos of women being raped all the time and just horrible bloodshed and weird tribal wars so that when the taliban took over as horrible as the taliban were life actually improved because they protected the women and they got rid of the the drugs. And it's hard to really wrap your mind around that when you're sitting comfortably in a western country you're in helmand province. Which is the most dangerous place to be there. Yeah so how do you view the war effort now. What do you think the west should do going forward with. What's your thoughts. Well i think. I think the place to start is back in two thousand and one and obviously the the nine eleven attacks devastating mass murder on. Us soil new york washington and so on Eight was understandable and appropriate that the us took some action absolute end it is. I think you can argue. Let you know that was september two thousand and one you could argue that by december the. Us had actually finish the job that it needed to do. I you need to ensure that no terrorist entity could ever again carry out that sort of attack with that level of devastation on the homeland of the united states. And in a way it seems to me. And i say this with hindsight because you know seventy people were in that scenario alongside me. I was just one of thousands literally of foreign advisors in others. You could argue that ever since about january the first two thousand two until now we've been kind of chasing our tails and i say we nato the west largely the us said the uk canada. You know its largest overseas commitments have been there every country you might choose to kind of name has been there in some way Because part of the problem is once you've kind of removed al qaeda from the battlespace and push the taliban out of the major cities. And as i say that was achieved within a very short space of time at the end of two thousand one. Then you get stuck in a much more complicated debate question which is a decades long question about who controls afghanistan what their values are and you know how that relates to the regional powers so one of the key questions here is pakistan pakistan has four decades ever since the nineteen nineties being the key supporter of the taliban. Now the reason they've done that because they said as a strategic counterweight to the ever-growing rise of india as both an economic and military power in south asia. So the problem that we have. And i remember this very acutely during the george w. bush era. Was that you had podcastone. Incredibly helpful and supportive to the us on counterterrorism literally to the point of offering up key members of al-qaeda at the same time as supplying the taliban with weapons logistics above intelligence united and. Of course you know. When under president obama the and seal team six finally located and and neutralize osama bin laden they found him in pakistan in inner city. Basically run by the pakistani army now. I'm not saying that. He was literally at the behest of the pakistan military. But you start to see this kind of double game. That was played. very successfully. By the pakistanis over a twenty period but then returning to afghanistan. What is it we want to achieve. You've talked by A movingly about the plight of women in afghanistan to be a woman particularly in a rural pashtoon dominated. Era of afghanistan is to is to live a nightmare. According to anything that i would understand as a father of a teenage daughter or anyone living in the west that has respect for women's rights but we as western countries. I think have demonstrated comprehensively that..

"Likely things. Some of it is very hard to put your finger on but some things are absolutely one. Is that a huge commanded. Russian money has flowed through the city of london. And let's not forget that the city of london. Which is you know. Financial district like wall street or whatever is the kind of the front is the vanguard of a much longer tail and the uk the british empire to the extent that exists a tool anymore exists in these strange little offshore finance territories places like the cayman islands. The british virgin islands jersey mind. Whatever all these little places that that too small to be independent countries so they remain under the british umbrella and they operate as offshore money. Laundromat hubs and the city of london. Because actually No banker wants to go and live on little island somewhere so they live in london. They do their operations in london. But they might be operating with with resources at a that. A domiciled in in one of these offshore hubs and russian oligarchs have found this an incredibly attractive and useful platform for taking money out of russia. Money which is probably being illegally certainly unethically acquired and laundering it through the system. And you see it whether it's prime property in central london beautiful old historic palaces effectively that are now being owned by these people bake football clouds premium country properties old manor houses castles on this russian. Money is causing to the system. But it's also it's the kind of concierge services the british of you know very good operating so it's the high-end boarding schools it's elite educational establishments it is Some of the world's finest Lawyers who who charge you. Fifty thousand dollars a day for their advice and so on. So britain particularly the professional clauses in britain have done very well out of the russian criminal oligarchy elite. But when it comes to the brexit vote itself we still don't know exactly what the extent of russian influence was and there's a very specific reason for this. The reason we know is because the government. The british government has never tusk. Am i five. Which is you know kind of equivalent of fbi with investigating it. And this is a really important point because m i five Is is not identical with the fbi is not really a law enforcement buddy. It's an internal intelligence agency It can task itself to launch investigations into national security threats but in in most cases it's kind of whites to be off because of course. These things are politically sensitive. The touch on all kinds of complex national interests and that was an investigation carried out by the Parliamentary intelligence committee which is equivalent to the kind of house intelligence committee and what they identified. Was this point that it wasn't that. The british intelligence agencies have not found evidence of russian interference in the brexit referendum. It was that never been asked to look at. But they're little pointers they're th-they're a little chinks of light in this kind of dog a dog sheet which help us to sort of understand so one of two things so aaron banks. Our banks is a british businessman. He's a millionaire. High net worth guy runs on some insurance businesses. It's not clear. Exactly how what is net worth might be. But he is one of the highest ever donors in a political donor in the history of britain So the donations. He's made puts him right at the top la now he. He is a huge advocate of brexit. He the donations he made was specifically to to achieve the outcome of brexit. Iron banks has also a very close relationship with russia he. It's on the record that he was being offered business opportunities by russia's ambassador in london his wife is russian national. He has all kinds of those kinds of connections. So that's just one. Little data point there are other data points were there were connections between aspects of the brexit campaign and individuals the russian embassy that connections that remain to this day unexplained about who funded some of the biggest publicity campaigns in support of brexit. And of course that's the basic point that you weaken the e u by removing europe's largest military power the uk out of the eu europe's most traditionally the most whole case the most atlanticist member of the eu. So one of the real tragedies of the brexit story is that as a country we the uk have not actually found the kind of political determination to understand what led the heart of it. You know what what were the underlying issues and and you mentioned earlier. Boris johnson has these relationships. He has relationships with major. Russian oligarch figures that the lebedev family the father again you know his public information was a was a kgb officer. Posted in london. Back in the. I think the ninety nine thousand nine hundred his son said gay is now a member of the house of lords he. He is a legislator legislative for life under raw rather quirky laws. The and his son of a of a russian intelligence officer so that these are very interesting. You know case studies. And i think people really feel that they understand what lies at the heart of these things well unfortunately in the united states we now know what it feels like when governing bodies don't want to investigate something that should be investigated Right yeah we're we're we're falling prey to that too. And i hope that more more investigations happen. Because i feel like all this stuff as anyone listening to this podcast will does. I do feel like the is a threat and that russia is trying to divide britain and the united states and until he can all of us which threatens them the pax marikana which in the wake of world war two has kept us all relatively peaceful and prosperous since You know nine hundred forty five so with that said. That's the end of my round of questions that are general. So we're going to be right. Back with arthur snell. And we're going to talk about you so stick around.

"To stay out of the uk and this is very significant. This would have been the end of the country that exists as britain that has existed since the beginning of the seventeen hundreds. You know so. So so the import of that referendum we. We shouldn't underestimate now. When it came to brexit the queen didn't say anything and as you rightly all's greg you know it should. She have made some kind of observation statement now. Part of the thing is it's not. I don't have a clear idea of where ha views would have sat on this question. That was my house. My thing we're and and so if you try to make an assessment just based on what the factor in the open open source as it were the queen Clearly all the european royal families related to each other. She's got german heritage. The russian royal family were her cousins before they were booted out The her late husband prince philip which was from the greek royal family were also distantly related. So on one level you could say well. She's competing european these oldies monica interrelated on the other hand. Coming back to something. We touched on earlier. The kind of traditional british conservative land dona elite in this country as often felt partly because of being an island country partly because of the english-speaking wellbeing geographically different to continental europe. The english speaking world goes to the. Us canada. australia. There is a sense in which people from the british elite have traditionally seen themselves as separate from europe and when the queen was a young queen you know she was right close to president kennedy. She was close to prime minister trudeau of canada. So it may be when she looks at the people who influenced her in her early stage of her life. She doesn't think about continental europe. I'd genuinely don't know the answer. I know that she speaks french while i know that. Her husband prince philip. He was a true european. Boone german greek. He had danish heritage. You know it. It's very hard to know an and one of the things that is very sad about the recent time in british politics is. The question has become very very toxic so if there was any hint that the queen sat on one side or the other of this debate it was negative is located. In a way that is it would be terribly disruptive brexit could be i mean could be the death-knell of certainly the british empire of great britain. Has this big superpower. We don't know what's going to happen. But you mentioned the sky forgot about the scottish referendum and and. Yeah her coming saying so they're going to not about brexit suggests to me that she she kind of preferred to leave but now maybe scotland leaves to join the you know. Yeah it could. That could happen. It could well happen. And you're one hundred percent thanks. Brexit rodriguez ultimately the deal. That scotland had at and it seems so mad now because you know the the timing was not was was not very distant but back in the time that the scottish were voting to remain part of the uk the prospect of the uk leaving the you felt very distant. It did not seem like a serious idea. And scotland's view was we are better off with the uk in the eu context. The the deal is completely different. Now if you'll scotland now it feels like a very different proposition right. I i know it has a lot to do with fisheries and stuff like that so we we don't need get into the fisheries i assume. Please let's not so. I've done since i started writing about trump and covering the stuff and and also since i started doing this podcast which is a later iteration of my work. I've learned a lot about russia and money laundering. And all this kind of stuff. So first of all. Brexit is a russian up i think the brexit op in the trump up at the same thing i think putin was trying to destabilize. Basically western europe by taking it to the two leaders of western of of nato basically. So i'm seeing a lot. There's a lot of russian money pouring into the city of london. People were calling london grad. Yom one of the big wealthy guards owns. What is it the chelsea football team. There's a lot of russian money there. How big of a threat. And also there's there's russian nationals coming to the uk k. And killing people in sovereign british territory. Which yes that's that's kind of a rubicon line that putin out it'll be it ought to be. Yeah how big a threat in your view is putin to the uk. I think is a huge threat. And i think if you think about twenty sixteen may have been putin's best yet because he had two huge ethic kind of olympic gold medal successes eight. He won the brexit election. And then actually you know. I don't i would never as bread make any assumptions about the influence of my country on a much bigger country. Usa but it is certainly true that donald trump talked a lot about brexit as a kind of case. Study about the improbable. Kind of populist nationalist. Message that that you don't let anyone tell you that people like us come win and it put a kinda fire into you know into the bellies of some of the people around trump surf. You'll putin twenty sixteen wasn't incredible year. You got the brexit vote and you go. You'll man in the white house now in terms of the specifics of what was going on in the uk in terms of russian implements.
"snell" Discussed on The Daily Beans
"Snow. Welcome to prevail. Thank you thanks for having me. I'm very excited to talk to you because you've had such an interesting career but we're going to get to that in a minute. What i what. I want to start the interview. Doing stuff is happening across the pond in great britain. That americans like me. Don't quite grasp. And i'm hoping that you can just be clear up some things and talk to me. As if i'm a complete moron who knows nothing and explain some things. I'll i'll do my best but it's always British people always make the mistake of assuming that americans are morons. And of course you'll the guys who put a man on the moon. So did we did. We did that. And i think we invented the internet and reality of the things a few other things we invented reality. Tv we get demerits for that okay. The first the first question of offs prime minister's okay. So going back to the seventy s most british prime ministers have been conservative. Only tony blair and gordon brown being labor. So okay. so there's margaret thatcher. John major david cameron theresa may and now moore's johnson so what i'm curious about is how various british prime ministers are perceived both in general among the population. And by. you personally us right. Yeah that's a great question. I think it's probably a bit light. Us president of course. We don't have time limits. So if a prime minister's good at winning elections i can go on forever but you kind of have the big league and the little league and just as you know. Ronald reagan is is a huge figure in the nineteen eighties in us politics. Whatever side of the oil. You might be. Margaret thatcher is very obviously for us in the uk kind of equivalent figure. Now she's a very different character clearly. She didn't come from that kind of entertainment. You know she wasn't. She wasn't a popular figure. She didn't have a particularly kind of a pleasant mina with the ordinary folk but she was a big figure bestride adding the cold war era in one thousand nine hundred eighty s and then you had perhaps the next big figure in. us politics was obviously bill clinton. We had tiny black. That were. they weren't exactly at the same time. They raised similar in this in the respect that they were from the left but people who moved the left party into the centre ground. Highly electorally unsuccessful. I mean tony blair in particular. I didn't think was capable of losing election. He was kind of like bill clinton without the sex scandals. He had a phenomenal connection with the public. He he knew how to kind of capture the politics of aspiration but combine that with kind of social conscience with broadening social programs. And so on. And of course. Tony blair's achilles heel walls the war in iraq and again That that links the us and the uk is politics because tiny bad felt and i think he felt this particularly as a left-wing prime minister in the uk that he had to stand very close to a republican president in the us particularly in the context of a national security crisis as you saw in the light of nine eleven so if it had not been for the war in iraq and the kind of disastrous unfolding of that teddy by might still be prime minister. Now i mean seriously he he was somebody who consistently showed an ability to understand what the people wanted. And how the kind of position kind of centigram politics so we can blame. George w bush for tony blair. Not being prime minister rate okay. I'm going to the other stuff. And i think it's probably fair to say that since blair We've had a series of slightly kind of second tier leaders. you know. that's where pops up paul's diverge the country. We've never had somebody like president obama who came from a minority community and came to national leadership. David cameron very privileged again. He was kind of black for the for the conservatives of gop equivalent. He tried to pull that party to the center but ultimately his his leadership exploded over. The your question. Theresa may golden brown very short Periods at the top and now have timpson britain trump. It's it's not just the hairstyle he has. He seen quite a lot across the pond which he likes politically which is interesting. Because a lot of people particularly people on the liberal side of politics whether in the us or the uk look voter suppression. They look at culture walls. They look at you. Know intimidation of the judiciary and i wouldn't want that in our politics but british conservatives a looking across the poem to north america saying those things zang out does something we can learn from this. And and that's that's kind of where we are in twenty twenty one in british politics. So boris johnson is apparently good friends with this russian. Oligarch owns. I think the london evening standard and he's got the palazzo and the umbrian hills of italy and he used to go there back in his days when he was a bachelor and kind of enjoy himself at parties. So there's a lot of speculation that the russians have something on this guy. So i was gonna ask you what feels like to have a leader compromised by russia but Being an american. I already know you've been there and done that. I mean the thing is gone. You've always bigger and better now. He just got married right. Johnson did so he did. I've seen her name before it's kerry symon. How does he has a pronounced. Simmons carry simmons but she she. Has i think very publicly taken. Her husband's name so she's now mris carrie johnson. So what where does she fit into all this like she left wing person because she's rattling environmentalist. Or is she. I'm having problems figuring that out. Yes so what one thing where the the the right wing in british politics has diverged from the. Us is that on the climate change question. Most british conservatives are in the kind of scientific mainstream so the paris accords. Very few people in britain would question the need to sign up to that the whole thing that we might see this week. We're talking mid june now into the g. seven the push towards net zero major water. Connie's moving away from hydrocarbons. All that has been adopted by our conservative party. Are right wing political party. So mrs carrie. Johnson than the new wife. The third wife of prime minister She. she's an environmentalist but as a as a political activist she's been involved with the conservative party her entire adult life. She still i think in her thirty. She's relatively young woman. So in that regard. She's not outside the mainstream of the conservative movement in british politics. And and i think there is something in british conservatism which is quite tied to the land. You as you know. We're we're an old country. We have these rich families who've owned property centuries through the generations. So i think that the degree to which some parts of environmentalism in britain fit quite easily with a kind of conservative idea of stewardship of the land and this kind of historic resonances. We used to have that here too with with the republicans have been teddy. Roosevelt was Conservationists and somehow that fell away and now they just want to burn as much oil as possible and burnt down. I guess i. I don't know i don't really i don't really understand Oh i didn't. I didn't even write this down but not talking about it. I forgot what's the deal with this. Nigel farage guy. He's people know that he's a joke or people. Follow the sky because he seems like a big fraudster to me. I know he's i mean. He's a very intriguing so thoroughly he was outside the conservative party but he was like the populist right-wing flank to the right of of the mainstream tories. And i i don't know you know the us equivalent might be character has light. Ross perot or people like that who ran to the right of the republicans. I guess over time the the republicans you know don't trump. Was your candidate in the republican party. So in that sense the republican party successfully kinda brought people in now. niger firearm. his big thing was getting the uk out of europe and very much. I wanna say out of europe out of the european union rod very much driven by an agenda. That was very hostile to immigration also to multiculturalism. And it kind of white nationalist agenda. Which which will be familiar in the us as well but he was. He always sat outside the tory party now. Once brexit happened once the uk left the european union which happened.
"snell" Discussed on The Bronx Pinstripes Show - Yankees MLB Podcast
"Dude was was looked every bit of mvp in the playoffs he. He dominated the playoffs but the way that it ended towards the end with blake style. Game six apologize for for bringing back bad memories but it does seem like it was that has something to do with the way that the off season Kind of rolled out. Snell obviously traded to san diego the race bringing a what seems like a plethora of veteran pitchers to throw spaghetti on the wall almost or mixed see if we can get one last one. Let's go out of these guys which to be honest. I don't doubt because tampa has been able to do that with multiple people. So yeah curious your thoughts ending the season and just just what that what that taste was going into the offseason with snell being traded. That's look i. It's one of those things. Where since knell has been off the roster we i guess thankfully haven't really had to relive game six because the the media isn't asking questions about a looking back on game six hair you entering this season so on and so forth. So it's almost into the yankees. Yeah yeah there. We go so Look i think that after game. Six things had kind of been ramping up to that point of blake snail. And the raise kind of okay. It's probably time for us to go our separate ways even though he to pretty much twenty nine other mlb teams. He has a very team. Friendly deal laughed with three years. Thirty nine million dollars on that contract. The raise aren't like every or every other organization out there and they're just been things with you know the when they traded tommy fan. He expressed his disappointment with that game. Six he he added. Scott boris as agent. Lot of things going on with that and he also expressed disappointment very vividly about not being able to go deep into ball games. And that's been the raise. Mo of ladies. Hey we're going to have starters be five guys. We're going to bring in the bullpen sixth inning and and try to close this up place now former cy young award winner. He wants to be able go seven and eight. He wants to get his chance at a complete game. And maybe he'll get that opportunity in san diego. I don't know but yet talk about throwing spaghetti on a wall because they of course not just traded blake's now for i think four very good prospects and players. That will definitely help this team. In time over the next several years they also opted not to bring back charlie morton on an option and i look i. I know this is sort of heartless in a way. I would have picked up. His option then traded him to the braves or somebody else and try to get something in return. But i guess there was so much mutual respect from both sides that they opted. Like if if we're bringing you back we're bringing you back to keep you. We don't want to bring you back and then give you this impression. You're gonna be on the team and then trade you a week or two or two or month later whatever. It is so what they've essentially done. Is they've unloaded payroll off the starting rotation and in return for veteran guys who have question marks have a history of success. But you just don't know what you're going to get from those guys. Whether it's chris archer column mccue michael walker Rachel the list goes on. And on. And i guess the idea and the thinking along those lines of and they brought in all those four guys for a combined. Thirteen point eight million dollars. Which is less than what charlie morton would've made At fifteen miles so really. What they're thinking is These four guys if they can give a combined four hundred fifty innings. The most that charlie morton is going to give you may be one seventy five. So you're going from sixty to one sixty two. We just need guys that can give us any in any way possible. That's part of the other part of it is they have a really really good stable of prospects in the minor leagues. That are going to be knocking on the door in the next couple of months. Whether it's shane mcclanahan josh fleming. Who saw a lot of action. Joe ryan lewis. Pitino brennan mckay brent honeywell lot of guys there that are chomping at the bit so once those guys are fully stretched out and inevitably once ritual. Goes down with something or chris. Archer goes down with something then they can start to bring those guys up sometime along midseason late season and hopefully had the depth to get through one sixty two so that's kind of what their line of thinking. There is while at the same time trying to save a buck or two. Which is the the raise way so to speak. Yeah yeah so. That's that's exactly you know everybody's looking at tampa and saying well. They lost morton. they lost snell. This is clearly going to be the yankees division. this is and which. I don't disagree. I think it is the yankees division to lose at this point. But that being said tampa has has been able to turn these no name guys in their bullpen. Into you know the the quote horse the stable of horses and and they've they've been able to make a lot from very little or they'll identify a guy who's had injury history and for whatever reason make some tweaks change his. You know his situation within the team and gotten a lot out of him. They've they've been able to add a lot of value from from. I'd say little and that's i think that's one of the big strengths from from kevin cash and an organization. So when i see that snell is gone and that morton is gone. Yes it's a. It's a hit to the team. But i have no doubt that they're going to fill that piece with someone else and probably someone of never heard of and this guy's gonna come in and you know this guy or these guys and and do well. It's just they have a track record of doing this. And the fact that you know they got archer wocka hill mchugh like you mentioned. It's possible that one of them have a bit of a resurgence would not surprise me. If archer all of a sudden found you know a little bit more of a semblance of being a pitcher and had some success so is by no means take them take them for granted and and i think that they are going to be a very serious threat in the in the division so curious. Your thoughts on what your expectations are for the specifically with this new New rosser yeah. That that's a. That's a great question a great point and i go back to like last year. Who would have thought that ryan thompson. John curtis and erin sleepers would be a thing that they would have success. Nobody had really heard of these guys beforehand and then we see them and they have a media success and it's like well maybe the rays have found some something and i think that's what they're going to do again with guys like jeffrey springs and chris maza and a bunch of volk guys and the other thing. Too with that is I know that nick anderson that bad news about him. He's going to miss at least half the year with what he's dealing with elbow issues and the rays have to find a new defacto closer. Which i think you know between fairbanks and casteel. They should be able to do but they also have guys. That aren't getting talked about this year. That are have been contributed to the raise in the past and are expected for big roles in the bullpen. Cody raid for example andrew. Kitchen chaz roe. Those guys are finally healthy and ready to go. So that's going to be big for them. I think you know you look at the rotation wanted to five definitely isn't a top ten rotation anymore maybe not even a top fifteen rotation but i think the they have so many arms that can pitch in and fill in that. I think they'll find a way to get through. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they've got like ten or guys by end of the year that have like eighty ninety one hundred indians between them. I think there's going to be a lot of guys that are going to be pitching a lot of innings in a lot of nixon. imagine from that standpoint. I think this is to be again for going from sixty to one. Sixty two While the rate on paper at least they're starting staff and maybe not even their their bullpen anymore. It doesn't look as elite as in last year. I think you know. Come to the dog days of summer. September august you get late in the season where i think teams are going to be hampered by injuries and ailments And it's going to be like a nfl season where it's just like..
