Ohio Attorney General Sues Facebook Over Impact on Children
"To it. I called you originally, because last week you did an important thing about Facebook. And I'm not one to mindlessly condemn the Facebook now meta. I know many of the people who work there, they don't intentionally some of them try and do this. But what you have alleged in court on behalf of Ohio and the Ohio pensions is important. If it's proved, which is that Facebook intentionally put children in harm's way. And in Mayan kind of began to quiver because, you know, I do worry about that. Tell us what the lawsuit is about and what you're seeking to prove on behalf of the people of Ohio. Well, the theory is fairly simple and it's pretty traditional. If you're a big company that's publicly traded, you lie to the public lie to investors and then when it's found out there is a drop in us stock price, companies liable. For their deception. And that's what happened here. We saw in September and October a huge data drop from leaked documents from inside Facebook. We had whistleblower testified in Congress and the upshot is Facebook new that a third of teenage girls were experiencing mental health issues as a result of their social media usage. And they didn't care. They told the rest of us that they were implementing community standards to make sure the trolls and evil people weren't spreading bad things and hurting people on their platform. And it turns out that they didn't do that. They had rules for some of us, like you and me you. But there were other people who were having large followings and the right political profile who the rules did imply to them. And most tellingly, I couldn't believe this, but they conducted an internal review with legal counsel. And that review, which was also leaked, said, we're not doing the things that we say we're doing publicly.
Dr. Tim Clinton on the Myth of 'Toxic Masculinity'
"My friend doctor Tim Clinton, he's the president of the American association of Christian counselors. He's also the co host with doctor James Dobson of family talk. The new book is called take it back, reclaiming biblical manhood for the sake of marriage family and culture. So Tim, we hear a lot in this day and age. We hear a lot about a lot of dumb stuff, but at the top of the list for me is this issue of toxic masculinity. It's kind of like talking about violent masculinity or whatever you're like, yeah. When masculinity goes bad, that's bad. We get it. But the idea that masculinity is somehow inherently dangerous or whatever you think, well, you know, that's like saying every cop with a gun is a potential murderer. So let's take the guns away from them. Their whole job is to protect the innocent and when they don't do that if they do the wrong thing, we prosecute them. So we're all on the same page, but people seem to be pushing this idea as though manhood is somehow inherently toxic. And we would say it's exactly the opposite. But why is that idea so widespread? You know, it's the logic's insane Eric, but even the American psychological association came out and basically broad brushed that statement saying that men were toxic. Eric, it's not that men are toxic. It's not that masculinity is toxic. It's that there's toxic behavior. There are men who make bad decisions. Have men blown it? Have you ever been on the receiving end of somebody's anger? Of their horrific stuff. You know, in a counseling world I live in. I see it every day. But Eric, that doesn't mean men are masculinity as toxic. We own our behavior, masculinity, God created this uniquely. We go back to our earlier discussion about being protected and providers the walls and so much more. Why they want to take it out again. It's the narrative. Because if you can neutralize men, if you can get them to shut down, if you can get them to, hey, what did throw say? The massive men lived quiet lives of desperation. If you can get them lost, if you can take them out of the fight, what the editing, all that's necessary for evil to try them in the midst of this war that we're in is for good men and women to do what? Nothing.
Lawyer Jenna Ellis on the Role and Responsibility of a Prosecutor
"Gentlemen, welcome back to the Eric metaxas show. I am Alton sadar, one of two producers of the show, and I'm sitting in for Eric today. And of course, my guest is the lovely Jenna Ellis and it looks like she's somewhere in Italy, I think I mentioned before. But then she straightened me out and told me this whole wonderful story about Disney World. So back to Jenna Ellis at Disney World. It's always great to have the background of the Disney Rivera. I mean, what a wonderful way to wake up and be here in Florida. I mean, my hair is definitely much more curly in Florida than it is anywhere else, but that's the only thing that you have to deal with. That's happened to me too, I curly her hair when I'm in full you feel me, yep, totally. So we were talking about the cow written house trial. And so we might as well continue on with that strain of thought. Yeah, so we're still at this point we mentioned we are recording this show. So as of now, the verdict has not been reached. But I also want to talk about just generally, the role in responsibility of a prosecutor because what I found really fascinating Alban about this case was how the prosecution clearly lost control of the trial. They were not expecting the witnesses that they called to testify actually in really in defense of Kyle's self defense affirmative defense here. And so I think that even though the prosecution sometimes, I don't know how much background they did, how much they prepared for this trial, but it seemed that they were frustrated with their own witnesses. Yeah, it seemed like they were surprised that they actually told the truth on the story. Right, which, you know, which is really unfortunate for a prosecutor because let's remember that in our adversarial system when it comes to criminal justice. This is not let's say me suing you Alban. And so, you know, I have an interest. You have an interest. And we both have private counsel in court. That's not what happens in the criminal justice courtroom. What happens is that the state is prosecuting Kyle rittenhouse. And so the state has to continue on with the interests of justice and do whatsoever justice requires. That's actually the higher calling and the ethical role in responsibility of a prosecutor. And so here, when the prosecutor is basically making a lot of these arguments trying to justify and make these alleged victims into angelic figures, the prosecutor to me went over the line between advocating just for justice going where the facts lead making the best case that he can to actually becoming defense counsel for the alleged victims. And that's where I think he watched
ZOA's David Schoen: Jan. 6 Congressional Committee Is a 'Complete Sham'
"So basically what you're saying is you want to let the process play out with the courts with the challenges because what they're demanding is well beyond I can ever think of a Congress demanding from a former president and his allies or staff or advisers or whatever I don't ever remember a case like this This sort of thing Am I right about that And think about you're right about that And think about this some more First of all there are office of legal counsel opinions directly on this that they are not to subpoena executive branch and even former executive branch people for this kind of thing Secondly what mister Bannon asked for was simply to have a representative of the person who invoked the privilege present so that they can make a item by item objection during the testimony of something came as privileged but think about this Think about who is demanding these items and the vindictive nature of this punishment You have a committee here that's a complete sham The American people deserve better If you really want to investigate the facts of what happened on January 6th then you don't have it headed up by chairman Benny Thompson Chairman Benny Thompson sued president Trump And in that lawsuit he represented to the court that the entire incident was instigated by president Trump himself that president Trump supported white supremacists that he Thompson's life was put in grave danger And this is the responsibility of the president How on earth can the American people stand to have someone like that leading an investigation That's no investigation What happens when it comes with effects that dispute that Then you've got Adam Schiff on there His history is well known I think to your listeners Jamie Raskin Jamie raski was the lead prosecutor president Trump's impeachment in which he specifically alleged that the president was responsible for January 6th This is a sham And these are the people demanding the documents Thompson has his own interest saying that he was personally put in danger And now criminal charges brought against mister Bannon Changing his
Lawyer Jenna Ellis Describes the Rittenhouse Prosecutor's Many Failings
"Well Someone not from the putrid swamp we adore fights against the putrid swap all the time My good friend she's back Again gonna have to like guest host the show suti but on so much Jenna Ellis How are you My good friend I'm great Thanks so much And yeah I will always fill in for Dan the man but you know so much right now Hear that Jim sign her up Sign up I'm not kidding I'm dead serious Yeah Jim put her on the list of person People to guess what the list is one person No no Knowles We tell Michael Knowles do he can do two So it's two people I didn't care so many times We can bump him up Kira Davis Chewy love Keira Davis too So listen you're one of the smartest lawyers I know worked inside the Trump White House You got a lot of experience in the field So watch them yesterday You know we chatted yesterday during my show but I wanted to have you back because I think and I had covered in the opening block One of the most ridiculous tactics you had by the prosecutor was a clip I played in the last hour where the prosecutor Jenna clearly out of touch with the jury starts playing down what rosenbaum had done Tipping over a portage on burning a dumpster swinging a chain around dropping the N bomb on people In other words the jury is full of people from Kenosha who saw the riots up close and personal their lives were damaged and altered forever in many cases And the prosecutor a ridiculously starts playing it down like oh don't worry Jenna rosenbaum was just swinging chains and burning stuff and tipping over trucks I mean is it I'm a serious question You've been around a lot of lawyers Is this guy really this bad or is he blowing this thing on purpose He's really this bad I think And prosecutors like that when they know that they're losing their case make a fatal flaw when they start to become defense counsel for the alleged victim in the case rather than being a prosecutor And that was his mistake because he started advocating for rosenbaum That's not his job His job as a prosecutor is to go where the facts lead And if he actually did that we wouldn't even make having this trial But what he needed to do as the prosecutor was draw out just Kyle's behavior and how this wasn't self defense Not advocate for rosenbaum because the jury sees through that And they see that he can't possibly defend this guy's action And the smartest thing that any prosecutor can do is to embrace the bad facts acknowledge that but put them in context He totally failed to do that
'Rigged' Author Mollie Hemingway Tells Us What to Expect From Her Latest Book
"The book we're talking to Molly Hemingway author of rigged How the media big tech in our Democrats seized our elections What can we expect in the book Things will learn in there because I think we're all suspicious Molly and it's the most American thing we can do is to ask questions I mean we had an unprecedented at least in modern times pandemic and election with millions of mail in ballots with counties that had very little experience with mass mail in ballots Florida has a lot of experience with that Therefore their election went off pretty well So what can we expect to find in the book Because a lot of people are still really concerned about this given 2022 being right around the corner So I tell a lot of stories detailed substantiated stories mostly focusing on Georgia Wisconsin and Pennsylvania But at heart it really deals with two big issues And the first one which kind of blew me away was the role that Mark Elias played in corrupting our elections I had been following Marc Elias because he was the guy who created the Russia collusion hoax in 2016 He was Hillary Clinton's general counsel He's the one who paid the people to make up the Russia story So I'd already been calling him I couldn't believe what a big role he played in corrupting our 2020 elections by enacting hundreds of changes of important election integrity laws flooding the zone with the mail in ballots We had such a more than threefold increase in the number of mail in ballots And it was just like you said done very sloppily And then the other thing was that I had been led to believe that when Mark Zuckerberg put $419 million of his money into the election system that this was like bipartisan help for COVID relief It wasn't That was a lie It was an overtaking of governmental election offices which are supposed to be preserved from partisan politics to run the democratic get out the vote operation and they focused on blue cities and counties in swing states Philadelphia to turn Pennsylvania and the cities in Wisconsin to turn Wisconsin Atlanta to turn Georgia and it was plotted out very savvy completely wrong I mean they just brought in an army of left wingers to run democratic operations in inside our governmental election offices And it was really effective

"First cash Patel. Welcome back to Salem radio. Savage, great to be with you guys. I'm so happy that you are continuing to hammer on the truth in Russia. That's why we're here every single day for three hours as well as our newsmax show on Sundays. Cash. I'm going to run by you. The reaction I got just a few days ago from Joe di Genoa, a lot of us have lost hope with John Durham. They say, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's two years later. I get that COVID slowed him down. But talk to Joe, who's a former special counsel himself, former U.S. Washington attorney, U.S. attorney for D.C.. He said these indictments, the level of detail in these indictments, especially the most recent one of danchenko, speak to a very serious individual who's going to get to the bottom of it. You've been there. You uncovered the Russia hoax for the house. What's your reaction to the recent developments on Capitol Hill? Yeah, look I think that John Durham is spot on track. As a former federal prosecutor, too, who brought these types of large scale fraud conspiracy cases, I spent three four 5 years sometimes working up a case in John Durham is working on the biggest scandal in the United States presidential history. And in two years, he's got three indictments. And the other thing about these indictments, he's connected the DNC to the corruption at the FBI to the corruption of their lawyers to now directly corrupting or expose enough nature of Christopher steel in the source. And normally these indictments are about two, three, four, 5 pages long. 40 page indictment. Yeah. Issues on the latest go round because John Durham is speaking to the public. It's the only way he's legally allowed to do so. And he's highlighting to take Sullivan's of the world that Charlie Dolan of the world.

Igor Danchenko, Analyst Who Worked With Christopher Steele on Trump Dossier, Charged in Durham Probe
"Well, perhaps the biggest news of the day is the actual arrest, not a subpoena not an indictment, the arrest by John Durham's special counsel of the key individual behind the so called Steele dossier, nobody, none better to analyze it than the legal and political analyst for Fox News. The author of the Russia hoax and witch hunt host of the brief podcast, Greg Jarrett, welcome back to America first. Hey, Sebastian, always creepy in with you. So tell us first, let's start at the beginning. Who is Igor danchenko? Well, he's the fabulist behind the discredited anti Trump CA. And he's indicted in charge with lying to the FBI not once. But 5 times on 5 different occasions way back in the infancy of president Trump's term back in 2017. The FBI knew that the dossier was phony. They knew that Christopher Steele was not credible who composed the dossier. They'd fired him for lying. And yet they used the dossier and then chanko is a pre-tax continue their probe of Donald Trump. And July, the 5 succor to continue the spy and it's really pretty stunning, then Czech who was not some mysterious Russian agent operating in the bowels of the Kremlin is Christopher Steele, the ex British spy led everyone to believe. No, the guys are researcher at a liberal think tank the brookings institution in Washington D.C. that at the time was run by a long time friend and ally as Hillary Clinton G what a coincidence. It was Clinton in her confederates who invented the Russia House, framed her opponent and disseminated the information and then chanko was key to it and it turns out not only when he was interviewed by the FBI did he debunk the whole thing, but in the process he lied about who his real sources were. Now we don't know through the indictment yet who those real sources were. I wouldn't be surprised if they were people closely connected to Hillary

What Ever Happened to the Clinton Crime Family Investigation?
"Hey, Charlie, whatever happened to the investigation into the clintons. Do you think they're ever going to go to jail? Thanks so much Quinn from Virginia. It's interesting. Actually, Merrick Garland was asked about this and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton who ran or run the Clinton crime family. You don't hear as much from them lately, except that Bill Clinton was hospitalized, and in addition to that, we all know the crimes that the Clinton family committed in Haiti, we know that they basically ran an international money capturing scheme from foreign governments to sell access. And isn't it interesting how the Clinton foundation stopped being so popular as soon as they got out of popular life in close to political power. I thought they were doing such wonderful work to cure river blindness and get young people in power, but as soon as they're no longer in political positions of authority, it's all the donations start to dry up. Merrick Garland admits and cut 87, the investigation into the clintons is ongoing. Play cut 87. In September of 2020, press reports indicated that special counsel Durham's team was seeking information on the FBI's handling of the Clinton foundation investigation. And can you commit to allowing the special counsel Durham's investigation to proceed? You would know if he weren't continuing to do his work. I'll take that as a confirmation that the investigation is continuing. This Department of Justice is corrupted. It's in the midst of many different controversies. Merrick Garland has a lot of answers that he has to deliver. A lot of things he has to answer for, in regards to his children and his son in law, making millions of dollars off the critical race theory that he's trying to deploy shock troops off to try to prevent.
AG Garland Won't Say if He Sought Ethics Guidance Regarding Ties to Son-in-Law's CRT-Promoting Company
"Apparently there's a company. That Merrick Garland's son in law is part of or runs or works for that advocate, critical race theory. What's the name of the company guys I'm drawing a blank? I want to say Polaroid. It's not Polaroid. It's it starts with a pee, I think. Say it out loud, Derrick, what? Think this pattern. Panorama, that's what it is. Yeah, it is. It's panorama. So panorama is a company that Merrick Garland's son in law works for and so Merrick Garland is sicking the FBI on parents who are ostensibly challenging the business model of Merrick Garland's son in law. So yesterday, as the AG was appearing before the House judiciary committee, House judiciary committee member Mike Johnson congressman from Louisiana had this unbelievable exchange with Merrick Garland who immediately turned into like a stepford wife, he was like a robot. He started going to this talking point about this memorandum set. He's talking about the memo well you got to hear this. Did you excuse me? Did you seek ethics counsel before you issued a letter that directly relates to the financial interest of your family? Yes or no? This memorandum does not relate to the financial interests of anyone. It's I take that as a no. I take that as a no. Memorandum is against violence and threats of violence. Will you mister attorney general? Will you commit to having the appropriate ethics design the review the case and make the results public? This memorandum is aimed at violence and threats of violence. I understand you're talking point, you're not answering my question, mister attorney general. With all due respect, will you submit to an ethics review of this matter? Yes or no? There's no company in America or hopefully no law abiding citizen in America who believes that threats of violence should not be prevented. There are no conflicts of interest that anyone could have. According to you, but with due respect, that's the purpose of the federal regulation. We need objective third parties to review our activities. You don't get to make that decision yourself. It doesn't matter. You're the top, you're the chief law enforcement of this country. This raises questions in the minds of millions of Americans in your impartiality is being called into question. Why would you not submit to a simple ethics review of that? I am exquisitely aware of the ethics requirements. But you're not following them. I have followed them and lived with them for the last 25 years. Did you seek an ethics review of this or not? I want to say again, there are no conflicts of interest involved when the Justice Department. Okay, okay. According to you, I got that. I'm not trying to be distracted, but you are not respecting our rules, our constitutional norms and the federal law that directly applies to your
Ian Prior and Mark Levin Analyze Collusion Between AG Merrick Garland and NSBA
"Yeah again going back to Garland you know it was interesting when they asked him about this case and he said he didn't know about it but it sounds like a state issue No no what we're talking about is violating federal law title 9 perhaps more Meanwhile when we're talking about domestic terrorism what we're talking about is state law right State law things like trespass disorderly conduct Those are state issues The Department of Justice has its priorities all backwards because it's completely politicized by this administration And you worked at the department justice right I absolutely did Mark And I can tell you one thing that letter from the NSPA came out on September 29th and they were able to turn around and memo in two business days I mean those things take weeks You got to tell the U.S. attorneys You got to tell office of legal counsel obviously the policy You got to coordinate with other cabinets and departments that are involved Please that thing was done probably written well beforehand and given to the attorney general when it was convenient when they got that in FDA letter It's a complete inside job and the Republicans need to stay on this People by the way you can foia the United States Department of Justice and see the internally who wrote the memo who was responsible for the memo who signed off on the memo any other communications that took place too So I would just tell my audience you know hundreds and hundreds of you ought to pile on and file those frequent information act and fire them right into the Department of

Jake Warner Describes How Alliance Defending Freedom Is Protecting America
"Sometimes we bring on folks from the ice spending freedom to help explain what it is that they do in case you don't already know. I have a with me, Jake Warner, who's a legal counsel with the alliance defending freedom and their client Scott chin. Guys, God bless you for coming on the program. Jake explain to my audience what this issue is about. Everywhere we look, there are issues like this. They're crazy. And if it weren't for 80, if the government would be getting away with murder, almost literally, go ahead and explain what this case is about. Sure. Thanks, Eric. A few months ago, the Washington Supreme Court said the state could punish a religious organization for declining to hire someone who did not share the religious faith of the organization. The Seattle's union gospel mission serves the homeless in the city of Seattle and they've done so for nearly a century. But back in 2017, a lawyer tried to apply for a position there, but he did not share their religious organizations beliefs. He didn't attend church. He didn't agree with the religious lifestyle requirements of the mission and he even applied trying to change the mission's religious beliefs to understandably the mission went with a different candidate. But this a lawyer turned around and sued the mission and the case went all the way up to the Washington Supreme Court and the Washington Supreme Court said that the mission could be punished for declining to hire this person. He did not share their beliefs. And we've now asked the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in and hear this
Loudoun County Father Arrested at School Board Meeting After Daughter Allegedly Raped in School Bathroom
"For years, we have been warning about how the trans lobby is going to be endangering young women because they're going to allow young men that have mental problems who think they are women. Allowed into locker rooms. And we have been pushing back against this. Rather, I don't want to say unsuccessfully. There's been some wins and some losses, but the ACLU and all these major organizations, they are pathologically focused on trying to destroy regular gender norms and reinforce gender dysphoria. Now gender dysphoria used to be something that was talked about and was accepted as a real thing, and now we have decided to reorganize society completely and to play into a very serious mental condition that people should get treatment for. They should get counseling for. And so, in loudon county, you might remember this father that went to the school Scott Smith, who was arrested for disorderly conduct for trying to speak out at the school board meeting and then the national school board association calls him a domestic terrorist now why was he there? I want every father listening to this to know this story. Well, he was there because on May 28th, a boy who pretends to be a girl allegedly wearing a skirt, entered a girl's bathroom nearby stone bridge high school and sexually assaulted his 9 9th grade daughter. This is according to daily wire and Washington examiner. The family's attorney said, quote, a boy was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy. And one count and this is very graphic. So if you want to just talk about poppies and rainbows, go find another network. One count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio, related to an incident that day at the school. The sheriff's office confirmed, via a public records request that this was a real charge, mapping, matching the date and location of smith's rape. His 9th grade daughter gets raped in a bathroom by a man wearing a skirt, who thinks he's a woman. Spare me the we need more Caitlyn jenners in the Republican
"special counsel" Discussed on 710 WOR
"Other than point out the lies. Other than try toe. Shame them. They won't They won't be shamed into into honor decency, but they should be shamed anyway. And the media is atrocious. In this country. It's a disgrace, but What else can we do? Appoint a special counsel. President Trump is the president. Attorney General Bill Bar is the head of the Department of Justice. This is a perfect example of where we need a special counsel because this investigation is going to be fraught with political pressure and considerations. So we need someone brought in from the outside to have full autonomy to investigate Hunter Biden and his associates. Up to and including Joe Biden if and when he becomes president of the United States. Why not? Someone explain to me why we should not do this. Oh, because it's mean Because it will make the Democrats have the Sadd's Don't even better reason. Look at what they did to us if they get away with this. And they're on there on the edge of getting away with it. If they do, they will do it again and they will have benefited from it. Maybe it's time we start fighting fire with fire. A special counsel on Hunter Biden Sounds like a great idea to me. Up next. Let's take a look at what that media thinks about their coverage of all of this.

I'll testify this is not your first rodeo in terms of watching witnesses so when you found him to be completely not what you expected that's why you were surprised I gather that definitely is why I was surprised at first I thought maybe he was doing it to kill time or something like that because you know he he had to longer well to me and and so I I was quite surprised very basic questions he had trouble answering me and it didn't matter if it was from the Republican questioner Democrat question people would read from the report and then he hit out at them to say is that correct or something to that effect and he really struggled he would stay could you repeat that I'll have to get back to the you know things like that I mean it I'm not sure what was happening there but it was obvious he was struggling when you left to die as she and you take breaks the doctor colleagues what were what were you saying to each other about special counsel Mahler I don't think we talked a lot I talked to some people and we basically all noticed the same thing and I thought we better not dive into them to you hard because he was definitely struggling with Matt but so you did these off of them because I did not want him to be not by Republicans I I thought it was it was not fair to him he was clearly out of his depth and and feeble actually did you did the word evil come up the word evil did not come up in in life circle of who I talked to but again it was I I'm not sure what was happening I don't know if you didn't get any sleep I don't know if he was stressed out I'm not sure what was happening but it was very obvious into the people that were watching them he was having a heart he was struggling and this is something I did not expect somebody that was going to be really on top of their game and and coming back at us than that now the thing I I want to stress that I I tweeted about it well I was watching the testimony you said do I'm looking just told Ted Liu and you're talking a special counsel Mauler that you did not indict the president because of the I'll see opinion but on may twenty nine year office said that wasn't the case and he confirmed you that that's what he said but then three hours later he withdrew his testimony were you watching in the afternoon when he basically conceded your point when I heard what he said to his they answer to Mr Lou the Democrat I knew that I had to respond to that because that was just a huge statement that I I knew that Mr Miller was confused about is dancer or something again that was my intention and I wanted to set it straight so then Congress from Lasko you've been there for that you've been watching this for a year now what happens next are we done can we all go home now and just say there is no there there no collusion no conspiracy no obstruction we're done done done well I think for the American people were done done done but unfortunately I watched it too closely my Democrat colleagues that Mister Nadler in is just absurd absolutely I cannot describe it any other way how some of my democratic colleagues it means a lot of them expressly judiciary dad about undermining the president of the United States in impeaching and they just it's like a rabid animal or something they cannot give mind anything else except taking out the problem it is it's it's really.

"And then twenty hours later, the special counsel says that's all wet. Now. I suppose it's the case in the Washington Post has an article sort of behind the scenes as to how this happened. There is an absolute sort of blanket policy of not commenting, you know, in my office. We had that. General policy also and to explain to people the reason for that is if the press thinks that you're going to give them the green light or the red light, depending on what they have if they say, look, we're gonna report that you're investigating ABC, but we're not investigating. See you end up becoming sort of their editor. Exactly. Oh, you also end up confirming that you're investigating aim and you never will do that. Right. You never wanna be a part of that. So we would have this policy move have this discussion. But I think you were getting it as a second ago there are times when they're very rare time very there are times. But there are times when a report is so off base in India. Remember what sort of the goal of the prosecutor is is not just win convictions. But to do Justice that great injustice and reputational harm will befall some innocent person who they have the wrong story on. And so behind the scenes, you sometimes we'll have to say that's not right. So for example, it in our hypothetical discussions in my office. I would say well what if a report? It came to us and said, we're about to report that you're investigating, you know, Senator so and so for child pornography possession, and it was totally wrong. Then you make an exception to your no common policy because otherwise there's going to be an article saying, the US attorney's offices is investigating and you're right about people's reputation and the impact that that those articles can have this is a great example. The BuzzFeed story drops members of congress are calling for impeachment. There's this incredible wave that happens in the national media almost immediately as a result of the story. And so it is incredible consequence the the Washington Post article is interesting and the thing it seems to say is that the BuzzFeed reporter went to Peter card. The spokesman and said we're going to run a story essentially that says that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to congress. What he didn't say according to a number of sources, and it sounds like there might even be some emails at back this up. What he didn't say is that the special counsel's office has a wit has witnesses and has been told that Trump directed this. And so. So Michael Cohen by Michael Cohen. And that is an end by other members of the Trump organization, that's a huge difference. And I think it's important to to sort of parse that out a little because if I come to you and say, yeah, I've got evidence of of you know, Michael Cohen being directed till? I it's very different than me saying you have evidence of Michael like the evidence. I have is your evidence. It would more easily prompt you to correct it. One of the reasons I was skeptical, and I think many people were skeptical even before Peter Carr issued a statement is that you had on the same day, and we talked about this couple months ago to submissions related to Michael Cohen. You had the the SDN wine. Sentencing submission, and then you had the special counsel sentencing. Submission with respect to the the SDN. Sentencing. Submission you had the ST. And why in their brief say very specifically that Michael Cohen did the payoff the hush money pay off right in coordination with an at the direction of individual one, the president, and you very sort of distinctly had a different story. With respect to the guilty. Plea of Michael Cohen for lying to congress and the special counsels memo, they did not say that was done at the direction of Trump. So you would think if they had that there would have been more symmetry between the two documents. And there wasn't which caused me to be confused about the BuzzFeed article completely. And and I think you, and I might have talked about this actually at the time that it happened, which is that, you know, Colin walks in. And he says Trump directed the illegal campaign contributions to stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal right that I was directed. And then the this other Jeter confirms that in their memo on this..

"And now here's a portion of our conversation from cafe insider. From cafe this is cafe insider. I'm pre- Perahera. I am. I see you're wearing a lot of layers layers. It is cold in New York City. I think it's six degrees as we record this on Monday morning. But it's it's hot in the studio as they say, they say that. I think somebody's been before. But I'm good with it. So I'm very we've been we've been purposely not communicating this weekend's, yes. So we can have a non rehearse conversation about all the crazy stuff that happened at the end of last week just to quickly summarize, and then we should break it down BuzzFeed had this very provocative article that very starkly stated that it had to law enforcement sources who said that Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to congress, and that that had been told to the special counsel's office. There were also presumably e mails text messages that there was a written document documentation of this fact, so corroboration not just relying on Michael Cohen, and everyone was freaking out about that. And saying lots of things we'll talk about how you and I were more pessimistic about it or at least cautious about it. And then about twenty hours later sometime later, the special counsel's office through its spokesperson who doesn't. A lot of Spokane. Peter Carr, put out a statement, basically saying that that a lot of the things we're not correct. And we can go through that statement also. And then this weekend, our favorite former United States attorney not for the right reasons. Rudy Giuliani went on the air and a lot of crazy stuff to. Let's let's let's sort of go back through this. Now, you know, we we both led law enforcement offices and from time to time you talk to the press. And sometimes it's not that you're reaching out to the press. Sometimes the press has a story and they're obligated if they're ethical press people to run the story by you, even if they expect to get a no comment, right? And so the odd thing about this. And this is an important point. Just because they are obligated in a good journalistic group will always come to you and say, you know, this is what we have do you have a comment. And so you get a preview of the story as it relates usually your agency. So like, let's say, you know, when I was a stage AG, they wouldn't say to me, you know, the. Oh, we have this about the FBI. They would say this is what we have related to your specific agency or your investigation. And then they would ask you for comment on that. And you know, most of the time in law enforcement. It's a no comment. I had a policy a sort of soft policy of also if there was something that was we'll talk about this more. I'm sure, but if there was something that was completely wrong related to our office. We would never let that go, and we would not necessarily go on the record. But we would make sure that it was cleared of the reporter that were not accurate. Yes. Where it depends on what it is. So I I guess the the question that I had when Peter core of special counsel's office put out that statement was how could it be the BuzzFeed has an article that presumably they passed by the special counsel?.

No, no advance to the special counsel. They would say they that. Maybe they believe that's the truth. That's what the that's what the adversary process is all about. But don't take it as gospel because guys have pled guilty in my experience, the things they didn't do in order to get out of worse problems. If they actually did and your experience. Criminal Justice when you were unfortunate. Whatever a prosecutor, you accepted plea deals from people talking you, Don, right? I would never do that. I'd never do what they did with with Cohen.

The president said we have covered about the special counsel. Take a listen to this from President Trump. But. I appreciate the special counsel coming out. With a statement last night. I think it was very appropriate that they did. So I very much appreciate that. That's some praise for the special counsel from President Trump. I did the same thing the president has referred to the special counsel investigation as a witch hunt. Probably hundreds of times at least dozens of times on after the integrity of Robert Muller and his team does this mean now that you and the president accept the credibility of special counsel Robert Muller in his office. No, he does something good. We're going to commend him. If he does something we think is wrong. We're going to defend the president good is in bad is something you don't like it seems.

"special counsel" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Kind note that the general thrust of Cohen lying to congress in accordance with or to support an advance Trump's agenda, her Cohen's legal memo is not in dispute the source disputed, the further more specific idea that Trump issued and memorialized repeated direct instructions and joy Reed that part about memorialize would be. I think a reference in the BuzzFeed article too. There is supporting documentation either from texts or emails to what was was reporting that the president basically ordered Michael Cohen to commit perjury as well as one line in the BuzzFeed story, where they characterize something that Cohen allegedly said to the Muller Tina, the Muller team is very tight lipped they do not leak, and you know, one could assume that maybe what they're also trying to project and telegraph is do not write a story in which you're projecting that we have now that members of the Muller team have leaked information. Buzzfeed, right. I mean when when Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in the southern district of New York, he said it himself as he stood up and spoke to the judge that he lied specifically about this Moscow Trump Tower project, this is something that is already on the record. It's something. He's already admitted to in the southern district of New York. So I think I with Ken, and that, you know, I think everyone is now kind of hair on fire about the. The denial by these special counsel's office, but I kind of try to reading it narrowly until we know more. So we know that there are a bunch of federal officials in Michael Collins life. There is the special counsel's office, Robert Muller. And then there is separately year-old office the US attorney's office in the southern of New York where he has already pleaded guilty. He has already been sentenced there, Donald Trump has been identified. They're in effect as a as an unindicted co conspirator referred to in the documents as individual one one of the of blooming theories of the hour. This evening is that these federal officials federal officials quoted in this are from the southern district of New York as opposed to mothers team does that. When you read the BuzzFeed article does that read as possible to now first of all let me be clear about something people are using this term, the southern district of New York that to me and to. Almost any prosecutor defense. Lawyer anyone working in the system means the US attorney's office. Okay. I can sit here right now. And tell you that there is less than zero chance.
