Supreme Court later on today, and the same is it I'm with her, but the her in this case, Rick is not Hillary Clinton. You recall that you used that phrase in her 2016 campaign.

Proud Boys, Black Lives Matter leaders hold joint conference: We 'denounce white supremacy'
"Proud boys. And get this black lives matter. Leaders hold joint conference We denounce white supremacy. This is the article from Jessica Chazz murmur in The Washington Times. Local leaders of the right wing group. Proud Boys in Salt Lake City held a joint news conference with a local black lives matter leader on Wednesday to correct the record and quote denounced white supremacy and quote after President Trump mentioned them during Tuesday's first presidential debate. Quote I will go out and say that the proud boys as a whole, I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization denounced white supremacy.

Americans and the right to vote: Why it's not easy for everyone to cast a ballot
"A conspiracy theory. Grow this large this quickly and be so divorced from reality. It basically goes like this. President Trump is terrified he's going to lose the election. And he's going to use the Postal Service to try to limit mail in voting as much as possible to in effect, disenfranchised Democrats and steal the race, just as he did with Russian interference in 2016. This conspiracy theory, however, has perhaps even less evidence than the Russia collusion theory. Over the next 15 to 20 minutes. We will systematically debunk this most ridiculous conspiracy theory. Way are not going to allow the president of the United States to dismantle the United States Post office and undermine the possibility that absentee votes could be used in the next election. And he also wants to do everything you can Two stirred out and the results of an election he thinks he's going to lose. So why do Republicans stand behind a Z attacks the most popular institution in the United States government? I don't understand why the president wants to block funding for the post office in order to prevent people from voting. That doesn't seem fair or right or leading. It doesn't seem like it is going to steal a lot of confidence among voters that their ballots are going to be counted right Once you start to realize that your entire states conduct elections with mail in ballots once you realize the history of the Postal Service is incredible Accomplishments, you know and how it's a backbone for the country. You know, you understand the stakes of what's going on here. You mentioned Republican leaders as well. Carl isn't this about moral bankruptcy of the Republican Party Democrats, aided by their allies in the left leaning media, been accusing President Trump of trying to rig the election by interfering with the United States Postal Service in an effort to have her mail in voting, But the simple truth is that there's no truth to this claim whatsoever. In May, a scathing report by the Government Accountability Office confirmed what's been widely known for more than a decade. The Postal Service is in deep, deep financial trouble since it's designated as an independent agency. It's not funded by tax money, but rather expected to support itself through the fees it charges for using its service. But as technology has made email and messaging communication far easier, and competitors such as FedEx, ups and Amazon have eaten into the post office's package delivery service, fewer and fewer people are paying to send mail. This has been a big and worsening problem. Since 2009 when the O designated the USPS as being at risk for fiscal insolvency, as it wrote in the report issued in May. Since Geo's 2009 high risk designation, the postal Services financial viability is progressively worsened due to declining mail volume. Increased employee compensation and benefit costs. An increased unfunded liabilities and debt. First class mail volume has declined 44% since fiscal year 2006. Additionally, employee compensation and benefits costs have been increasing, although the Postal Service's workforce declined from about 786,000 in fiscal year 2007. To about 617,000 In fiscal year 2013. The USPS is workforce increased to about 630,000 in fiscal year 2019. Finally, total unfunded liabilities and debt continue their steady upward trend. Now, this has resulted in the post office, losing roughly 78 $1,000,000 from 2007 to 2019. Senator Barack Obama recognize this way back in 2008 while he was campaigning for president, if you think about it Ups and FedEx. They're doing just fine. It's it's the post office is always a problem. When President Obama took office, his administration attempted to ease the financial crush on the post office by altering collection routes in removing mailboxes that simply weren't being used. In the past 20 years, The Washington Post reported. Back in 9 202,000 mail boxes have vanished from city streets, rural routes in suburban neighborhoods Mohr than the 175,000 that remain. Between 2011 and 2016 The Obama administration ordered an additional 14,000 mailboxes removed because they were underperforming, which the Post office defines his collecting fewer than 25 pieces of mail per day. This routine elimination of mailboxes to consolidate mail collection and keep operational costs down has continued since President Trump was inaugurated in 2017. But now President Obama and his vice president Joe Biden, are casting this as an attempt by Trump to keep people from voting. By mail as president, Obama told his former advisor David Plouffe, on a podcast this past week. What we've never seen before, is President say, I'm goingto tryto actively kneecap the Postal Service encourage voting and I will be explicit about the reason I'm doing the postmaster general said, would delay the approaching liquidity crisis. That was all the aid for the Postal Service in the cares act completely. Separately, The bill also gave $400 million to something called the Election Assistance Commission for distribution to states to prevent, prepare for and respond to Corona virus domestically or internationally for the 2020 federal election cycle. This, however, wasn't enough for Democrats and they're now demanding a $25 billion bailout for the post office in the next round of Corona virus relief funding, as well as $3.5 billion earmarked for mail and voting on Fox Business Network President Trump said. Well, that was simply too much. You know, there's nothing wrong with getting out and voting. You get out and vote. They voted during World War one and World War two. They should have voter ID because the Democrats scammed the system, but it's two of the items are the post Office and the 3.5 $1,000,000,000 The mail and voting Now, if we don't make a deal, that means you don't get the money. That means they can't have Universal mail in voting that just can't have it. So you know, crazy will be many more just nature. Now Democrats have interpreted this, says Trump, admitting he's deliberately trying to sabotage mail in voting by preventing the passage of desperately needed funding for it. But this claim to falters under the way to the fact of the post office can already handle the expected flood of mailed ballots this November. According to the Postal Service's annual report. In fiscal year 2019 USPS handled 142.5 1,000,000,000 pieces of mail on a typical day, the report notes are 633,000 employees physically process and deliver 471 male pieces to nearly 160 million delivery points. Now this year, That number is higher because the Postal Service has been delivering stimulus checks as well, A census forms now those alone added about 450 million additional pieces of mail. In 2016 roughly 136 million Americans voted in the presidential election. The number's probably going to be a little bit higher this year. If official set ballots to every single American who's registered to vote. That's about 158 million people, and then 140 million people returned ballots. The roughly 298 million pieces of mail handled over the course of several weeks would be well within the Postal Service's ability to handle them all. Now. Officials, of course, won't send a ballot to every American who's registered to vote, and not every voter will vote This too. His false. The changes were ordered to streamline mail collection and limit mail carrier overtime costs, which top $1 billion per year, as the Washington Times reported. In the past, postal delivery worked this way Ah, worker would arrive in the morning and work on various things in the office. Sorting mail handling holds on mail waiting for incoming mail to arrive. To prepare for delivery that often involved waiting around for hours and then starting an actual delivery route later in the day once started, a route has to be finished, and that involved workers going into overtime as they delivered through their route as evening approached. Did. Joyce plan, which is now being implemented in a pilot program in about 200 cities is called expedited to ST Afternoon Sort. A Shin or esa es un during a worker will arrive in the morning. Collect all the mail that was ready to go out and head out for delivery. It's known as retrieve load and go. Then, after finishing the delivery route, the carrier would return to the office and do in the afternoon. The office work that used to be done in the morning that way, when the end of his or her shift arrived, That would be the end of the workday. No overtime would be incurred. Mail that arrived to the office in the afternoon. While the carrier was doing office work would be delivered in the next morning's route. It would be ready and waiting with the carrier arrived for retrieve load and go. The effect to customers would be that mail was delivered to the office in the afternoon. It would be delivered the next morning. Instead of that evening, the effect of the Postal Service would be to save an enormous amount of money in overtime costs, streamlining operations and making the postal service more effective. However, this has been cast as mail carriers simply leaving pieces of mail, especially mailed in ballots on the floor for days. For weeks at a time. There's no evidence to support this baseless allegation. Justus. There's no evidence to support the notion that the Trump Administration has been removing mailboxes or mail sorting machines in an effort to a happier mail in voting. Mail in voting might be impacted by not but not by postal service operations but rather by individual state laws, which make mail in voting cumbersome, especially in New York, where a congressional primary conducted at the end of June still doesn't have a declared winner by the middle of August. The Postal Service, in other words, can easily handle mailed in balance. It doesn't need a $25 billion bailout, and it doesn't need $3.5 billion on top of the $400 million that has already been earmarked specifically for mail in voting. The Postal Service will remain fiscally solvent at least until the end of 2021 but efforts to change it efforts listening to the Dan O'Donnell show.

What struck me about all of this is is not just how Democrats have have Done exactly what they're accusing Republicans of doing Have you seen the freak out over the conspiracy theorists, the cue and non believers for those who are not familiar with what Q. And on is it's ah, far right conspiracy theory that posits that President Trump is working behind the scenes to bust the secret cob. All of Pedophiles led by Hillary Clinton and John Podesta, and pretty much every celebrity that you've ever heard off. There's no actual evidence for it, of course, but because a number of Q and on believers and one Republican primaries, it's being hold. My goodness, This is the worst thing that ever happened to mainstream politics. We've got conspiracy theory believers. There's no conspiracy less founded on actual evidence than this post office nonsense. In fact, I've seen pictures on the Internet that have been circulated. Now Twitter and Facebook have done their level best to try to make sure that misinformation about elections nothing that could undermine faith in elections is allowed on their platforms, except for these pictures of mailboxes in Wisconsin. Of all places. That are piled up. They've been taken off the streets. Trump doesn't want you to be ableto Drop your piece of mail in a mailbox. Well, what these pictures Don't point out is these are piled up. Sure, at a facility that refurbishes the mail boxes to put them back on the streets. It's always got a stack of mail boxes outside because it's working on them. Refurbish them, then this idea that sorting machines and mail boxes have been ripped off of the streets in the last couple of months so that we can vote by mail is nonsensical. Unless you're willing to tell me. That Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who saw over 2011 and 2016 5 years. The removal of 14,000 mailboxes and 200,000 mailboxes removed in the years before that. Unless you're willing to tell me that they're part of the conspiracy. You're almost forced to admit that there is simply no evidence behind this, but what's remarkable to me? Is how quickly this became mainstream and it got me thinking. Well, wait a second. Wait a second. Wait a second. If Joe Biden is up by as much as the polls suggest he is 10 to 12 points. Why would Democrats suddenly be trying to cast doubt on an election? Right? Wasn't this Almost exactly four years ago. What President Trump was supposedly doing August of 2016 when the first reports on the eve of the Democratic National Convention about election hacks and Russian interference, and all of this started coming out. President Trump's first said that he was worried that the election might be rigged. You might remember President Obama rose Garden press conference said. How would you even rig the presidential election? Donald Trump is whining about losing an election that hasn't even happened yet. The idea was that Trump was going to cast doubt on the legitimate legitimacy of the election because he knew he was going to lose. Remember the pole similarly showed him down 10 15 points. He had no chance of beating Hillary Clinton. So he was preemptively whining about the fact that Clinton and her cronies we're going to use massive vote fraud to cheat. Why are Democrats doing this? When their candidate is up 10 points. Maybe it has something to do. With this. A new CNN poll finds that 50% of registered voters back the Biden Harris presidential ticket. While 46% say they support Trump and Pence right at the polls, margin of error plus or minus 4% points. There's a new CNN poll. Across 15 battleground states. Biden has the backing of 49% of registered voters while Trump lands at 48%. In other words, that massive lead doesn't actually
Is This The NFL's #MeToo Moment?
"Can you give us a sense of the build up to the publication of this report? So there's been a lot of drama swirling around the Washington football team, but suddenly started to get all of these dots that you could start connecting. There's a lot going on within the front office. That really doesn't add up firings in retirement in July in the NFL. Rarely happening tonight. We're! And we're too high level personnel executives who were abruptly fired and Alex Santos in Richard. Man were fire. No reason was given as to why they were fired. Then today, longtime radio announcer for the Washington football club Larry Michael announcing his retirement, he spent sixteen years with the team, the man who had been there the radio voice, he abruptly retired without any sort of official comment from the team, and he started to hear this buzz rumors flying about a potential bombshell report on Washington's football team and owner Dan Snyder. This is absolutely taken over social media with speculation running rampant then by Thursday afternoon. The Washington Post dropped the story. There fifteen women who went on the record, alleging widespread sexual harassment within the Washington football organization that spanned just about Daniel Snyder entire time that he is owned the team, so these were women who works across the organization in marketing and ticketing and finance in there were also two female reporters, one who formerly covered the team for the Washington Times and Rianne and Walker our colleague from the athletic, who also went on the record to accuse one of the men who had? had been fired of sexual harassment as well. It was the sprawling account as you mentioned fifteen women accusing sexual harassment in Washington. Can you summarize some of those accusations? Yes, so it was a lot of the very classic cases of sexual harassment things from making lewd comments about women's bodies about their breasts about their rear ends about the the clothes they were wearing to very overt sexual comments, propositioning requests to go on dates, just a lot of overall inappropriate workplace behavior. Behavior from superiors directed at female employees, and it did not seem to be a secret. Some of these women who went on the record with the Washington, post talked about how the other people who worked in the organization knew about it. They talked about it amongst themselves. There were places in the building where women were advised not to go. Specifically, there was a stairwell that had basically transparent stairs and women were told. Do not go there because there were men who. Who would stand underneath that and look up? Their female colleagues skirts all of these things that are blatantly inappropriate and wrong and workplace environment, but had been persisting for more than a decade, all fifteen of these women went on the record, but one of the few who allowed her name to be published is a woman named Emily applegate. What was her experience like working inside the Washington Organization? It was miserable it really most people know times a comment on my appearin. Screaming at you for something that you, it's not your fault. And then somebody makes a comment to you about what you're wearing and it just snowballs from there. she cried at work regularly, she felt belittled, imagined us being called stupid on a daily basis, and then also almost in the same breath being hit on for your appearance. It's a miserable work experience. Experience to the point where she no longer wanted to work there anymore and no longer even wanted to work in sports, and we should note that Emily applegate's former boss Mitch Gershman who was the team CEO at the time both denied and said he didn't recall conversations referenced by Applegate, telling The Washington Post quote I can't comment on something I can't remember. But Lindsay what actions has the team taken in response to these accusations from emily applegate, and the many other women, well many of the men who were accused in this story, all ready been fired, and we're kind of fired in the process of the Washington Post. Reporting this story, the team can say that has taken measures to address this because some of these accusations date back to the early to mid two thousands, so some of these people no longer actually work with the team and then some of the people. People that had new allegations have immediately been fired or left the team. They've started their own investigation. They hired an attorney Beth Wilkinson. The name might sound familiar over the last several years. Wilkinson took part in notable cases involving Hillary. Clinton Brett Cavenaugh and Michael Flynn and she told us we can confirm that our firm was retained by the team to do an independent review of the team's culture policies and allegations of workplace, misconduct and Daniel. Snyder and his wife sent an internal email to everybody who works organization to. To apologize for the culture, the statement saying in part, the behavior described in yesterday's Washington Post. Article has no place in our franchise or society. The story has strengthened my commitment to setting a new culture and standard for our team, but without specific apologies to any of the employees into these women, and there have also not been any public apologies to the two female reporters who were not team employees. The team has not publicly addressed them as well

"Their services however Jeff more doc reporter at The Washington Times says some cleaning companies are rejecting jobs that pay lots more than their typical work because exposure to the known risk of Colbert nineteen just isn't worth it Jeff what's up here what what's really interesting is that we're seeing because of the corona virus a lot of business is knee deep cleanings especially if their employees get infected yet of white everything down because the corona virus can last on surfaces and when that happens you've got to call these deep cleaning companies and this should be a I could not and it is actually economic boom for these companies because they're in demand they're getting so many calls for deep cleaning for co that nineteen cost about forty thousand dollars a week in there so many risks in so much unknown about the corona virus that they're turning businesses down because they just don't know that the risk is worth the money I was fascinated by the guy who said I'll do it if friends and family ask yeah and he says that you know when he does it for family and friends he won't even give them a contract to sign because there's so little known about the virus that he didn't want somebody coming back and saying well now we know you need to do this and you didn't do that for somebody came in and now we have corona virus he was too worried and that's the problem there is to worry about somebody coming back to pointing out a flaw because coronavirus changes every day it seems like every day we learn something new about the disease for the virus today we learned something we thought we knew has changed and it's got these guys who do this for a living very skittish about eighty assignments they're going to take on and beat how they're going to approach it because they're just afraid they're going to do something and if somebody's gonna be in someone's gonna get affected on their staff or something's going to change in the deep cleaning they did is not what needed to be done at that time we're speaking with Jeff more doc reporter at The Washington Times this piece is called the decontamination companies afraid to cash in on corona virus cleaning how busy or some of these businesses are insanely busy they're getting calls right left and they say one guy told me which I thought this was really interesting that he lives off of his cell phone and there are days by eleven in the morning his cellphones at ten percent because he's gotten so many calls and what's interesting though is a lot of calls from people who don't need it they're saying you know if your business and somebody was infected and you shut your business office down for fourteen days that's enough time that whatever was contaminated on the surface probably has dissipated by then and probably when you re open it is just going to be fine but others you know we're saying you know hospitals areas that where there's ambulances people on the front lines to health care they don't have the time to shut down they don't have the availability to shut down and if they are going to do cases those are the ones they're going to do what protects the first responders so what's involved in deep cleaning that can bring up a bill to about forty thousand dollars a lock because you've got a straight eight fog kind of a decontaminated clog then you have to wipe everything down you've got to spray everything with the decontamination service you've got to work personal protection equipment you've got a word that leaders and all that stuff adds up and one of the things that's particularly interesting is the other stuff is not reusable in some of the stocks that you use it for corona virus it's got to be destroyed because you don't know me out that could be a quick minute is contaminated and that's another reason why we find owners of deep cleaning businesses are being selective they only have so much equipment and they don't want to try to use up that equipment at a time when they're such a such a run on the court and one guy told me that he has a gasket it cost six dollars and it's necessary to run some of the cleaning equipment necessary for a deep cleaning he got a call from one of his competitors offering him a thousand dollars for the six dollar gasket and he said he had heard that down because he knew the guy really didn't want the gasket he knew the guy was going to take it and sell it for double back to somebody else that's how much this equipment to demand imagine thanks Jeff Jeff Morlock reporter at.
FBI has failed to track homegrown extremists, Justice Department watchdog says
"Further investigate individuals who have been labeled as homegrown violent extremists that's the summary of a justice department watchdog report released yesterday more from Jeff more doc justice department reporter at The Washington Times Jeff take us through this hi this is unbelievable so the justice department Spector general did a review of the FBI got terrorism domestic terrorism cases and found that there were at least six terrorist who went on to carry out attacks that killed a total of seventy people were on the FBI's radar the new they were terrorism suspects in the FBI did not do any follow up or any investigation and these people skated and went on to carry out the attacks and it's important these are these are some of the most high profile tax we have seen in recent years for example the war machine what killed forty nine people at the pulse nightclub in Orlando is on that list the delta son who killed thirteen people at Fort Hood in two thousand nine he was on that list Esteban Santiago killed five people that terror attack at the fort Lauderdale airport he's on that list of these these are high profile names that the public has known about for some time so why has this happened why were these K. cases closed back a follow up to date they got tips they did some day to day you did some minor investigations they didn't do enough they didn't follow internal procedures when it comes to counter terrorism investigations and in some cases they close these cases determining that the that the terrorism suspect was not a threat to national security and these cases were closed in weeks in some cases three months I mean this is not a lot of time to really do a thorough follow up or investigation I one paragraph in your store you said roughly forty percent of the F. B. I.'s counter terrorism assessments one on a dress for eighteen months even after the bureau discovered investigative lapses what's going on here that's exactly what that's exactly the case that up even with the FBI after these terror attacks would go back they would do reviews they make recommendations and they found that those recommendations work followed and that's just starting that even after the FBI recognizes his own mistakes nobody in the field offices and I plan on at the FBI here in Washington the main headquarters down mistakes nobody in the field office took any steps to correct those mistakes peeled off its counterterrorism managers did not notify some agents about some of the procedures they did not do follow up to make sure procedure agents were following procedures I think bungled the thing from top to bottom being with Jeff more doc justice department reporter at The Washington Times is pieces called FBI missed chances to stop domestic terror attacks because of a lack of follow up is gonna look at a new watchdog report so what we have here of leadership failure poor training with anyone for any reason for this yeah how many should thanks it's poor training from from the agent I think it's also but it's not in the report but I mean these agents are overworked Derek handling multiple cases and I think in some cases they probably did what they felt they needed to do to move on to the next case but it's poor leadership and it's the leadership not bringing this down to the field offices that the field offices were all the grunt work and all the real investigative work is being done nothing down here in Washington is being done at least collapses across the country those people do people charges collapses were not implementing we're not implementing these guidelines there's a funny story in the inspector general's report when they talk about there's two field offices that they went to to do it to assess how they're handling terrorism investigations and they found that the procedures recommended here in Washington were not being followed until two weeks before they came which would be two weeks before the inspector general investigators came to the field office which coincidentally was the time the inspector general announced he was coming to the PO box you know that's probably not a coincidence last thing the F. B. I. needed really was another black guy that's a great point it's just been a late fee and a lot of these have been discovered by the inspector general who is by the way and the Obama appointee which I think is very important because he's been extremely critical of the F. B. I. in particular how they've been handling political matters related to the trump administration but we had I mean this isn't the first time we've had an issue with the F. B. I. dropping the ball on Karishma destinations what was not mentioned in the report but Nicolas Cruz the alleged shooter of the parkland massacre they had Pepsi he was on

Senator Tom Cotton Repeats Fringe Theory of Coronavirus Origins
"I WanNa read you a headline from the Washington Post out this morning Tom Cotton. That's the senator from Arkansas. Tom Cotton keeps repeating a corona virus conspiracy theory that was already debunked Senator Tom. Cotton repeated a fringe theory suggesting that the ongoing spread of a corona virus is connected to research into disease ravaged epicenter of China. Cotton referenced a laboratory in the city. The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory in an interview on Fox News Sunday morning futures. He said the lab was near a market. Some scientists initially thought was a starting point for the viruses spread. We don't know where it originated and we have to get to the bottom of that. We also know that just a few miles away from that. Food Market is China's only biosafety level four Super Laboratory that researches infectious diseases yet cotton acknowledged. There's no evidence of the disease originated at the lab instead he suggested it's necessary to ask Chinese authorities about the possibility. No we don't have evidence. The disease originated there but because of China's duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says. China right now is not giving us any evidence. Cotton is referring to a well-known lab in Wuhan a Cellular Level Biosafety Level Four facility with a high level of operational security that works on researching dangerous pathogens in response to cotton's remarks as well as in previous interview with the Washington Post. Numerous experts dismissed the possibility. There's absolutely nothing in the genome sequence of this virus that indicates the virus which engineered said a professor at Rutgers Vivid Narang Associate Professor at. Mit says it's highly unlikely. The general population was exposed. It's a skipping logic to say it's a bio weapon that the Chinese deployed intentionally deployed or even unintentionally deployed. That's not what cotton say. The British publication. The Daily Mail was one of the first to suggest a connection between the corona virus and the laboratory wad later. The Washington Times ran a story into that virus may have originated in lab. The Chinese ambassador has rejected the idea. It's true a lot is still unknown. But it's very harmful. It's dangerous to stir up suspicion. So let's review the headline is Tom. Cotton KEEPS REPEATING CORONA virus conspiracy theory. That was already debunked. Can anybody tell me who in this debunked it a professor at? Mit says it's highly unlikely. A professor at Rutgers says the possibility that it was deliberately released can be firmly excluded and the Chinese ambassador himself says there are still a lot of unknowns so who debunked who to bunk. Tom Cotton can anybody tell me in the story from the Washington Post? Who DEBUNK Tom Cotton? Because I'm not seeing that anybody has debunked Tom Cotton Maria. The situation
Virus-hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese bio-warfare program
"The Washington Times in its generate twenty fourth issue put an article regarding this outbreak here was the title of the article virus hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese biological warfare program yes you heard me say that right to laboratories that are linked to a Chinese biological warfare program the article states this quote the deadly animal virus epidemic spreading globally may have originated in a Wuhan laboratory linked to China's covert biological weapons program according to an Israeli biological warfare expert the article continues by stating that China's most advanced virus research laboratory is the Wuhan institute of virology that's V. I. R. O. L. O. G. Y. now Danny show harm who is a former Israeli military intelligence officer with the rank of lieutenant colonel and who holds a doctorate in medical microbiology and from nineteen seventy to nineteen ninety one was the senior analyst with Israel's military intelligence for biological and chemical warfare in the Middle East and worldwide including China has stated officially at the will want institute of archaeology is linked to Beijing's covert biological weapons program he stated certain laboratories in the institute have probably been engage in terms of research and development in Chinese biological weapons at least collateral Lee yet not as principal facility of the Chinese biological were for alignment work on biological weapons is conducted as part of the dual civilian military research and is definitely covert as he says China has denied having any offensive biological weapons however the state department and report last year suspected that China has engaged in covert biological warfare work what is interesting is that the US official that is a U. S. official has stated that false rumors have come out since the outbreak and these false rumors came out when the outbreak began several weeks ago rumors from China stated that the virus was a part of a U. S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons what is concerning about this is that China may have been pre empting a false rumor to create a propaganda cover up of what really is going on in their own biological virus laboratories in other words it may be that this novel coronavirus may have escaped one of their laboratories or has was created there now Denny show him stated in the article that corner viruses have been studied in the institute of war I will hand and are probably held at their end this includes czars H. five N. one influenza virus and other viruses when asked of new core of ours is may have been
Ari Melber: How Did We Get Here? Because of ‘Weaponized’ Propaganda from John Solomon
"Donald don't trump sufficiently closer to impeachment ever on the eve of these first public hearings which will probe into the scandal that has paralyzed his presidency for now and we turn to our special report report beginning with a question. How did we get here? The answer begins with a country that was rarely in the news. And when the first reports of the whistle blower emerged in the Washington Post long long before we ever saw that complaint we were all waiting and wondering and trying to figure out. What does this have to do with Ukraine by by far the biggest news of the day? Which is this whistle blows store whistle blower story which is now going officially nuts? Shane Harris in the Washington. Post tonight is reporting that the whistleblower complaint has something to do with Ukraine something to do with Ukraine but what would be scandalous about Ukraine policy. Most people had not heard enough about trump's policies towards that country to even guess at the time and if you were learning about this story from the Washington Post The Times or or most national news in September when Rachel was reporting that out it was all new. Yeah but if you happen to read conservative articles in the opinion section of the hill back in March you'd see the seeds of this Trumpian conspiracy theory. Here's a headline quoting. A foreign officials unsupported allegation that the Obama Administration demanded Ukraine simply. Avoid prosecuting certain people a pretty silly article. Here's another from April in the same basic format a single Ukrainian source claiming the. US didn't want evidence on Democrats. Now you can see where this is going again. This was back in April before any of this blew up but around that same time. Here is the Cherry on top of this conspiracy theory Sunday quote Joe Biden Haydn's twenty twenty Ukrainian nightmare a closed probe is revived the second part of that clause. This was back in April is just not nothing yet. Close pros close pro revived hadn't happened now. America at that time in April was waiting for the release of the Miller report. It was three weeks away. There's a lot of other news but this writer over the hill was speculating about this fight and nightmare that virtually no one was losing sleep book. This is important. What's going to happen tomorrow? Because at that time there'd be no way to distinguish distinguish this from thousand other headlines for websites outlets varying credibility but those three articles. I mentioned they all have something crucial in common. They're all oh by John. Solomon a conservative writer. who used to be at the right wing Washington Times and also is an analyst at Fox News and has links to top conservative operatives Columbia Journalism Review is referred to him has been basically a history of bending the truth and distorting facts? You should know that up front if you haven't heard much about Solomon well you may be about to hear a lot more about him in the impeachment hearings Mr Solomon and president trump also the same taste in lawyers Solomon hired Joe Digenova a lawyer that trump tried to hire and like some other politically aggressive lawyers that donald trump favors these days. Agenda Does more than litigate he pushes political agendas. Agenda's goes on Fox News and that's where he dramatically previewed his disturbing material that would come from his now climate. Solomon this was back in March. There are some very disturbing details about it. There are about to come out and reporting by John Solomon and I think once those details come out. I think there's he's going to have to be a full-fledged criminal investigation wow full-fledged sounds like he has the inside scoop on what his own client is writing. That Fox News segment was touting the piece I just mentioned that Oh so understated headline which reads Info Wars Fan fiction. The one about the Ukrainian any a nightmare and the reviving of Appro. Step one. Have your lawyer hype the piece on Handy. Like they're some independent interest in it step to well obviously go on Hannity. The yourself here was John Solomon citing his mysterious Ukrainian sources for then obscure story now the story behind the story a full report investigative reporter the hills. John Solomon is with us. There's a pattern here of hundred Biden being in the countries where the vice president has a foreign policy portfolio folio and somehow mocking awesome. Nice paydays. And they're telling me tonight Sean that they've been trying to get this information to the US Justice Department for more than six months well if there was a US government conspiracy by the Justice Department or State Department. That would sound bad right but of course that lasts six months that would implicate the trump administration degenerate and hannity support trump. Obviously the other thing here is that the top people involve all say what you just heard from Solomon is false. In fact Solomon's angle has been backfiring in two ways one as political propaganda mission to help trump. This has of course now brought trump closer to impeachment than ever to as a conspiracy theory that Ukraine allegation got really big too big and it blew up in Solomon's face sparking investigation that has now publicly shredded. His claims aims you original whistleblower. Complaint says in March Twenty nine thousand nine hundred of these series of articles in the hill quoting several Ukrainian officials and those allegations citing Solomon's work and that's part of what trump in so much hot water. Then there's the trump officials and diplomats who fact check Solomon again. I WANNA be clear. We only know about this because it backfired it because of the pro but now I can tell you. Three different officials who served in the trump administration say when it came to Solomon's Ukraine writing all the key elements were false. I former army officer vitamin another saying Solomon pedals baseless conspiracy theories and other diplomat. George Kent will hear from publicly tomorrow was blasting testing Solomon's fabrications as utter nonsense but that's not just a big rebuttal. Let's testimony from people speaking under oath under the threat of perjury. Legally that obviously carries more weight potentially more legal peril than what you say Sean Hannity Segment.
Rudy Giuliani's role in Ukraine's investigation of Joe Biden
"Since he came into office. Donald Trump has had personal attorneys who work work outside of his administration. The most notable person in that position was Michael Cohen who left the role and later went to prison for tax fraud related to his work with trump in April of two thousand eighteen. Rudy Giuliani became trump's new personal attorney and occupied a similar role in kind of gray area not not part of the trump administration but deeply involved in trump's work and it's in this capacity that Giuliani starts actively pursuing Lukashenko's is claims so how does Giuliani pursue this investigation into the Biden's so it starts with this may trip that he tries to plan to Ukraine to meet with with the precedent there okay so I've decided Sharon. I'm not going to go to the Ukraine. You'RE NOT GONNA go. I'm not going to go because I think I'm walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president that's canceled because he's just getting hammered from all sides about the impropriety of a president's foyer going to meet with a foreign leader out although this wouldn't be the first time that he's done that while serving trump's lawyer but the next month he doesn't give up he goes to Paris and meets with with an official in the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office and then in July about a week before the president would talk to with the Ukrainian president in this now famous phone call. Rudy gets text from an official at the State Department. The person from the State Department who texted Giuliani is named named Kurt Volker the text said Dear Mr Mayor. Are you back stateside. Let's talk or get together who is Kurt Volker. Kurt Volker is actually also in a volunteer capacity to the US government. He's the US government's special representative for Ukraine. He's been serving in that job since 2017. You've worked with the State Department but it's not quite an official role. He checks in again two days later and then on July nineteenth nineteen. He says he really enjoyed breakfast this morning. As discussed connected you here with Andrew Euromac who is very close to President's Alinsky a suggest reschedule a call together on Monday maybe ten. AM or eleven am Washington time so volker offers to introduce Giuliani to a top aide a senior your adviser to the new Ukrainian President Zilenski and these people the Lansky and his aide. They're not connected to lose cheng-kuo right. The claims about Biden are not coming from them. Yeah and the timing of this text message is interesting because it's it's six days before trump is set to talk doctors. Alinsky but it also comes right after trump has directed a hold on nearly four hundred million dollars in aid that set to go to Ukraine in the fall. What's your interpretation of that timing. It's not clear who knows what at this point by. A good chunk of the funds are State Department Sutton and the other thing I would note is that Giuliani said that he doesn't become aware of the hold on eight until much later in the summer. Does the three way call happen and as far as we know the three way call happens. We don't know about the contents of this three way. Call between Giuliani the personal lawyer Volker the State Department armament volunteer and your Mac a top aide to Ukraine's new president but if any side were to bring up the claims about Biden it would be the US side remember there had been a Ukrainian election. Lukashenko was not in the new government and the new administration was not connected to his claims and then a few days after that call another call happens the call between the president of Ukraine and president trump this this is the call at the center of the current political turmoil and on this call trump is the one who brings up the claims about Biden and repeatedly tells the Ukrainian president to talk to Giuliani so it was really interesting to us that he's not only saying investigate investigate Biden but work with this person who's not officially in the US government and really has no official role other than to serve as his personal lawyer earlier in an investigation that at that point is dead but makes clear how eager he is for the Ukrainian government to do what Rudy is asking for and did did Zilenski people then talked to Giuliani yeah so your Mac the top aide. Alinsky and Giuliani meet about six days after the phone call in Madrid. This is a meeting that is cited in the whistleblower complaint and we know that Giuliani again takes these opportunities to bring up the Biden investigation to bring up investigation into possible election interference in two thousand sixteen and to press all these issues that are at the heart of this now now and how do we know that he brought those things up because he's told us this is Giuliani again after the call between the two presidents trying to get at the new Ukrainian administration to look into Biden and questions start to reemerge about whether in these meetings Giuliani was acting in an official capacity on behalf of the United States when he was not authorized to do so
Apple will launch 3 new iPhones with 5G compatibility in 2020
"And in some cases made brand new we have tremendous submarines that we are building right now tremendously powerful submarines nuclear submarines and a lot of good things are happening I think we're gonna end up making a deal with Russia where we have some kind of an arms control because all we're doing is adding on to what we don't need and they are too and China is trying to catch us both right now it would be us then Russia and then China but China is actually way behind but they're trying to catch us and you know one of the things I've done is a China had the worst year they've had in twenty seven years I was in the Wall Street journal yesterday state and they are not you know they're not doing too well right now with cara thing then we taking in many many billions of dollars I'm taking care of our farmers out of those tears because China hit them as a way of retaliating against president trump and I said okay are farmers a great patriots are incredible and our farmers are going to be the ultimately the biggest beneficiary so a lot of good things happening with respect to that you know what I'm talking to generate now but really it's going to be up to me I we cannot let China do what they've done to us over the last twenty five years they've taken hundreds of billions of dollars out of our country every single year hundreds of billions with a B. not millions billions but you think you can reach a deal I think I can reach a deal of I want to I think they're right now hurting the terrace a killing and companies are moving out of China they going all over including the coming year by the way I don't wanna pay the tariffs and yeah I think you can reach a deal absolutely welcome to real quick points first of all you issue forty three thousand tweets did you ever regret sending one out not much honestly not much I said the one about the wire tapping in quotes and that turned out to be true remember the big deal that was I heard like about a minute after I sent a nice I was called by my people Sir did you say I said yeah I did what's the big deal and the reason was such a big deal as it turned out to be true I guess you could say a lot of the times that the bigger problem the reach which you know you'll retweets something that sounds good but it turned out to be from a player that's not the best player in the world that sort of causes a problem but overall I would say no not at all I think it's a a modern day form of communication and it's not really twenty that's a typewriter what it really is as soon as I do it you put it on everybody puts it on ice breaking news we have every time I put out a to even if it's good morning everybody they say we have breaking news the president has just said good morning it's it's an incredible way of communicating and you get it at first otherwise I mean I don't know how would I combat news that's dishonest how would I combat a reporter or a a network that's totally dishonest CNN is is you know a hundred percent negative NBC is negative I made a lot of money for NBC with the apprentice it was a tremendous success at a time when they didn't have any successes but they forgot about that very quickly so and they wanted to extend me they want to do anything I want to run for president I think we've done a great job the countries right now on the right path and I think we have tremendous potential you know you take a look at the European Union that's doing poorly you take a look at China's doing really poorly you take a look at other countries are not doing well with the hottest country in the world with doing great economically and otherwise we now have a very strong military lot stronger after this last budget and then at some point very soon I'll be able to cut back but we had to rebuild our military we didn't have a choice you know it's wonderful to say we have a balanced budget but we can protect ourselves having a balanced budget doesn't mean anything final question is you approach this job in a day in the presidency here in the White House walk us through that day well I I stay up late like to read a lot which is so people don't understand it but I do read a lot I also watch a lot as sometimes a lot of fox I I watch a lot of fox I tend to not watch too much of CNN because I mean all I it's it's just it's just such incorrect reporting that's why their ratings went down so low although I'll be watching the debates tonight you know I if I didn't say I can imagine and I would like to know who I'm going to be running against maybe you'll tell me after this interview right you tell me I don't know I I mean I would think the four or five top ones which seem to have a big edge you have some people that shouldn't even be wasting time but I would think the four or five top ones would be the ones that would be you know certainly have the best chance of getting in there's a picture of your dad in the credenza me all along would he be surprised that your president today well he was always very proud of me and did you know I went to schools I did well he just was very proud of me and I came into his business he was a man that never let anyone sign a check and when I came in I could sign checks you know he was just very strong guy who just you know was very dominant figure and yet a very good man he's a very good person had tremendous heart but his strong person the only surprise in that he never thought I'd be running for politics you know for office I think if I said I was going to run for president I think it probably should have a chance of doing it so he never got to see this unfortunately he died a little while before but he was ninety three and he led a good life is a good good man great mother great for the great brothers and sisters but side that way I was very very lucky but I think my father would say that if I if I wanted to run I think you probably said I would have done very well know who this was exactly going to happen who can say that I mean you have political families that everybody thinks you're gonna do great and they didn't do so great but my father would have been very proud he loved this country and he had confidence in me your baggage and in a second term would be wife well I think getting getting costs now that the military is very close to being totally rebuilt I think costs are going to be a big factor we want to strengthen up social security so that nobody gets hurt later on I'm gonna strength and a lot of the things up that really I think we're gonna do very strong health care very very strong healthcare it's very very important to me because you don't have obamacare is not good we've managed obamacare really well and I had a decision to make do I manage it well it do I manage it purposely poorly politically I we should have managed it poorly but we've managed it really well much better than they managed it it's still too expensive and it's still not good health care so we're gonna make something really good and I will leave that to the beginning of my second term if we can win the house the Senate and the presidency we will have healthcare that's going to be phenomenal and many other things we have a lot of things to do and the record some budget cuts are in the works potentially to settle absolutely sure will be will be taught well just in terms of the military

A piece here in the Washington Times it was a column back on April seven two thousand ten by Hans a von spot. Cops key sounds like a bond villain. But he's not. He's an academic is an intellectual writing there at the Heritage Foundation Hans a von, but cut s-k-y. and here's the upshot of it in nineteen eighty seven july of nineteen eighty-seven the washington times reported that pad lahey had disclosed secret information about nineteen eighty six covert operation planned by the reagan administration topple moammar qaddafi federal intelligence officials told the paper the mr who lahey had communicated a written threat to expose the operation directly to c._i._a. director william case even just weeks later news of the secret plan turned up in the washington post causing it to be aborted Now, this is what got Mr. Lahey, the nickname leaky. senator depends this was an attempt to undermine the reagan administrations military operation against qaddafi this is after if you recall What was that pan? Am flight. Whatever it was that was blown up over Lockerbie PanAm, one of three it blew up over Lockerbie Scotland, we found out who did it was. It was agents of Qaddafi, and the first attempt to retaliate way he found out about blew it. blow it up on purpose so when when you see things like democrats made a phone call somebody made a phone call to the iranians enabling them to move civilians into the target area don't immediately you don't immediately discount it It's. not something new as i say during the reagan administration there were repeated efforts by democrats senator kennedy practically the entire democrat house caucus trying to undermine reagan with the soviet union directly and with one of his client states in nicaragua here's here's the san diego story just to do this san diego spending millions to build ill laborat- tent city tents facility for the homeless this this would come into the category new towns are being developed in california New towns tent cities, full of formerly homeless people. There's calling it smart growth, my friends, smart growth. The last couple of decades every town city planner in the country, talked about smart growth, California is a leading state in what is called smart growth. I mean smart growth that term even precedes Obama, which everything Bama was doing his called smart, ex smart. Whatever smart government smart management, smart, this smart that smart resistance economics. california leading state and smart growth which creates housing shortages and dramatically drives up prices guess what that causes that causes homelessness but don't worry because now socialist politicians even desperate republican ones Are using tax money to a wreck tents and trailer parks for homeless people. You know, left us could not fix a problem if they're if they're if their lives tended on it. All they can do is somehow come up with what they call the compassionate plan that acknowledges this this new existence. And former place. They were advocates for shopping carts for the homeless. There's never a solution. There's never anybody who wants to solve at the Democrats won all these situations so they can blame Republicans for them. and then offer so called solutions which are nothing more than moderations accommodations so that i can say see how compassionate we are see how much we care So we care is building tents and trailer parks. For the homeless. Now, the population of my hometown, Cape. Girardeau Missouri said to be thirty eight thousand five hundred forty four died. That's news to me. When I was born, the population was twenty four thousand when I left, it was twenty five thousand apparently, it's jumped up there by thirteenth that, well, we'll go with it. That's what that's what you get if you ask Siri. so basically the entire town of cape girardeau missouri my hometown is living on the streets in los angeles they have a street population of sixty thousand And they can't figure it out. They don't know why. And they don't know why democrat presidential candidates are not talking about it. Not offering solutions to it. Angeles revealed at the city saw a sixteen percent increase in its homeless population over last year. Soaring, the more than thirty six thousand people living on the streets. The numbers actually closer now. two to sixty san diego is now spending millions of dollars to build elaborate tent facilities for the for the homeless what would you do rush well you know what i would do i would have done it a long time ago i would have this is the nature of the beast and this is let me give you a good definition a to be a good liberal always said is one of those gutless choices you could make you know all you have to do to be a good liberal you have to see suffering and point to it and say oh my god look at that suffering and you're a great liberal you qualify as being in the top one percent of liberal compassionate people who've i got look at the suffering if you'll come along and you see suffering and you want to get to the bottom of why an offering a solution to it Then you are heartless and cold spirit in and you have no compassion whatsoever. because you're not you don't see suffering and you don't wanna just stand there and trying to relate to it and understand it you wanna fix it And that shows unbelievably that you have no compassion. want to solve these problems to figure out why they're happening the reason the left doesn't wanna solve the problem is to got to go you have to uae you have to get to the route and that route is always going to take you back to liberalism slash socialism slash the democrat party which an honest assessment will show they don't solve anything they get away with making everybody think they care more than anybody else and they come up with ways to accommodate the problem and make it less challenging for the people suffering the province fix it no way solve it no way Hey, they don't know how because they don't believe in individual prosperity other than for their pre existing rich. They're pre existing donors. That's fine. But they don't want, you'll becoming that. they want they want as many people as possible remaining dependent and in that van let's go to the audio soundbites talking about the the pain this week of the upcoming democrat debates and you got to do an attitude adjustment on this i'm looking at this is pain i got look at it as you don't remember i'll tell you i have had a friend of mine name you at all no but i'm not gonna mention the name for privacy and security reasons but i had a guest in town back in march for a local golf club member guest tournament this guy big in the news business so the tournament runs thursday friday and saturday and on friday night there was no organized social activity as part of turnips have the night off which was a blessing and so my my guess is we've got to watch the democrat town halls on c._n._n. they were going to austin texas off by south west no no you watch offset you up a set up in there in the theater and you can watch them on the fourteen foot screw no we got to watch it we got to watch it I so we don't gotta watch. We know what's going to be said before we I gotta watch it. He said. So I as a great host. Decided to watch it with my buddy. And it was it was Tulsi get what's two hours of this. two hours on c._n._n. presidential town hall of first hour tulsi gabbard member of the house of representatives from from hawaii and the only thing she said if we were playing a drinking game we get plastered and we'd never seen the second hour The only thing she said was that she wants to serve the people to be service to be of service. She wants to serve it became a joke. The second hour was mayor Pete. Mayor Pete Buddha. Judge? From south bend, Indiana. And I remember about halfway through it. I turned to my famous big time news, buddy. And I said, you keep a sharp by because he was laughing at mayor Pete. He was kind of chuckling, and he was making some notes, and I said. be careful of this guy be careful this guy is is excellent at hiding how radical he is his radical tendencies look very likable i said you make sure you make a note here so it was after that the following monday came here said keep a sharp i out on on mayor pete and i literally think i'm one of the reasons why mayor pete started getting some i will never be credited with this of course and i don't want the credit for and i'm actually kind of embarrassed that it happened but i'm not denying by played a role in this So mayor Pete. Came off extremely well. Came off as extremely hip, not kissed. His husband not kiss. His husband on this town hall that was to come later. this he was just smolders he could be he had the appropriate slicing and dicing remarks about trump and as i say his real talent was hiding the fact that he's no different than any of the other radical leftist running for president just doesn't come off that way so i was actually kinda glad my my guest made me watch this stuff and it's the same attitude about these debates starting this week at the big boy table first and then a little while the big cantabile little kin table two debates they can't squeeze them all in there on one stage one date debate because nobody they have a chance say anything to of these things to watch and i've got the same attitude in oh don't make me so i'm doing an attitude adjustment rather than looking at this is the obvious pain that it's going to be i'm trying to look at it as at least the potential for having a lot of fun if you can find fun in listening to a bunch of people literally tell you how they want to destroy the principles and concepts of the founding of this country and that's really what you have to sign up to listen to and in that regard let's go to the audio soundbites and here is crazy bernie we'll start with audio sound bite number two i was off by one election i predicted in twenty sixteen that it would be hillary clinton who would propose forgiving all student debt just paying for everybody and being done with it and she didn't and i remain stunned to this day that she didn't but crazy bernie did it he did it today in washington outside the capitol building held a press conference talk about his plan to cancel all u._s. student debt you know how much it is One point six trillion, you realize how much money these people are openly advocating spending and giving away. the idea that we have a budget deficit and national debt we oughta just broom it from the conversation because it clearly is not a factor neither of them are there is no restraint on spending whatsoever in many ways from either party there is no concern about the impact of the spending the impact of spending on borrowing the impact of the spending on interest rates the impact of the spending on the overall economic of the country there's no more concern over the national debt not seriously there's very little concern about the annual deficit to spend spend spend spend spend there is literally no limit you would think on what we have and how it can be spent and the longer this goes on and i think we're already there the more americans adopt that opinion that there's no reason for restraint that there's no limit on how much the government conservative government is helping people government is doing what it's supposed to the government is to promote the general welfare all of that rotgut people are beginning to adopt it and now with no politician showing any kind of fiscal responsibility whatsoever and in a way you can't blame them because the people who did you go back to the eighties the nineties all the way through the two thousand there was constant concern over the deficit i remember one year i was invited to speak to the bakersfield business conference i was never invited back by the way Remember this? I was invited to speak of the Bakersfield business conference and I proceeded, the former secretary of whatever for the Kennedy administration, Robert S McNamara.

Trump just raised tariffs on Chinese goods
"As you have surely heard by now on about two hundred billion dollars in Chinese imports. Went from ten to twenty five percent at a minute past midnight this morning Washington time this round of negotiations has come to an end. We are told President Trump and his top advisers say the talks were constructive. And so here we are betwixt and between June smile at the New York Times Linette Lopez is at business insider, the topic at hand, of course, is now what happens everybody Haycock. Hey guy, so genome, let me start with you and offer this observation it seemed like the president based on his statements in his tweets this afternoon in which he basically said tariffs are staying on. We'll see what happens. He said Lincoln for this thing to go for a while. Now. Yeah. It looks like it. And I mean there were negotiations yesterday and today and those only lasted a few hours both of both of the leaders in this case, both president Xi and President Trump are dealing with a situation where they have decent looking Connie's and decent-looking markets at their back in. So I don't think there's a lot to push them to a really fast conclusion at this point. Let me ask you this actually, which which just sort of occurred to me as Jean was making her point, you, you know, how financial crises happen, very slowly. And then they happen all at once. Is it possible that a trade war goes along quietly for a long time, and then gets worse? Very quickly all at once. I don't see why not. And I I'm not sure how stable the Chinese economy is. I mean back in. February January wouldn't have said that it was completely puking and the the government had to go in and help out banks and take take some measures like lowering the amount of cash that thanks have to have on hand and encouraging the property market again, which is already very frothy. So that's a worry that they have. So. Yeah, it stable and it's been stable for the last month. But it took a lot of doing to get there. And the pulled a lot of levers so you don't want to go into situation where it's destabilized again. I thought junior that and I did think actually I'll say it in the in the affirmative that this time kind of felt a little bit different. I mean, we've been you know, up and down the tariff road with the president many times over the past eighteen months, this one sort of felt more significant. And now as I said up top in the open, everybody's kind of going. Yeah. Well, we'll see. Yes. So I think it's interesting. I if I've been reading a lot of economists notes this afternoon, and the big takeaway, I have from those is that most people just don't think that we're in for the long haul here like a lot of people think this does get resolved. And that's why markets are shrugging this off. But like you said if you listen to what the president is saying and look what he's tweeting. It sounds like he is in for the long call. And so that disconnect is going to be really interesting to watch and see how that gets resolved over over the coming weeks. I think need. I need some perspective from you on this one. Even a twenty five percent tariff on two hundred billion dollars worth of imports comes to fifty billion dollars a huge enormous amount of money. But in the scale of the American economy, it's a drop. Right. I mean, but sure you're talking about a lot of goods everybody buys every day potentially being affected. And that's that a and you're talking about, you know, potentially Sean slowing down purchasing power a little bit. But the reality is the US economy can probably handle this. And Donald Trump knows that one of the reasons according to reports that the Chinese delegation thought they could play harder ball was because the president kept insisting that the Federal Reserve should keep interest rates low, which is an indication that the economy is weak. So even though Donald Trump knew that knows that the economy is stronger says that the economy strong, and the data is showing that we're. On good footing. Right now, the fact that he was putting pressure on the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates was giving a mixed signal to delegates and they thought that maybe in reality. The economy was weaker than it is. And they had an an entrance point negotiate so Gina let me ask you this, and it has been pointed out here and elsewhere that the president of the United States is economically inconsistent, shall we say? And and and this is actually a really serious question. Do you think the president understands how tariffs work because if you look at his public statements and his utterances on Twitter? It's not clear. Right. So he's saying things like, you know, tariffs are being paid to the US by China twenty-five percent on two hundred fifty billion dollars. If goods, that's not the way tariffs work. So the way tariffs work is that in tears can work different ways. But the way vis tariffs have worked so far is that the people paying them are domestic consumers and the. Research up to this point shows that literally the full incidents like all of these tariffs are being paid by domestic consumers to the tune of like one point four billion dollars by the end of two thousand eighteen based on the research so far. And so I think that you know, there's a real disconnect between what he's saying. And what is actually happening with these tariffs? Same question to you. Do you believe the president understands how it works? Based on what he says. No. But does he mean what he says? I don't know, you know, either he's performing that he doesn't or he really doesn't. Super quick question to both of you on the way out here. I'm obliged to point out that there's paperwork in the works. Looking at automobile tariffs on the European Union? We've got the US MCA that the president has said he wants to wrap up by the end of the summer. We've got a debt. Limit fight a common sooner rather than later. Why does anybody think they're going to be able to devote any attention to that? When this is still hanging over their heads to you know, you go first. Yeah. So I mean, I think the interesting question is whether people think this is still going to be hanging over their heads. And so I think that a lot of especially the the universe. I work in a lot of economists just think this does get resolved because the stakes are pretty high. And because the next trenches of tariffs are going to hit consumers, whereas the ones up to this point have been on sort of business intermediary goods. And so I think there is this idea that this is just going to get resolved. Whether that's true. I don't know. Limousine question, you quickly things are going to get fixed with all the rest of this stuff. They're promising new orca. I don't know if they're going to get to anything. There's too much going on in Washington, and I would like to be bored with Washington. But I'm it's too exciting. And I don't like it. You know, this is a very complicated situation. I've been talking to people on Wall Street since Sunday's President Trump tweeted out all that stuff and on Monday, anybody would have told you that we wouldn't be where we are today on Tuesday. They were starting to get a little worried and on Wednesday. They were like, oh my God. This is real. So nobody actually knows this is this is happening in real time. In the experts, are I we've gone into unchartered territory here with the significance of these tariffs,

"The lawsuit against the Washington Times and what happened then what happened between that point and now this settlement well, so these things can take time and and litigation moves move slowly in some places it's faster than it is and others. But this this case has has moved at a somewhat slow pace. And so it took a little bit of time to enter into discussions. I can't get into the details of our conversations unfortunately with with the Washington Times. But you know what I can say is that you know they're the, they're outside counsel was extremely. Professional and diligent, and we had we had lengthy discussions over a period of time in order to get to the place where we were able to reach an agreement that resulted in the retraction and the apology. My colleague, Oliver Darcy CNN broke the news of the settlement last Sunday, take us through all the layers of it because I, I know you can't say if there was there was money exchanged, but it's really revealing how robust, how, how strongly the the the times is emitting fault here. Yeah. I mean, I think oftentimes when you see an organization retract a story, it'll tend to be a a one sentence or two sentence sort of line that's buried in a section of paper or a place online that people really won't see or notice. And it was really important because of the nature of these sort of viral conspiracy theories. It was important to our client that that if there was to be a settlement that it. Actually haven't affect on clearing his name. And that meant finding ways of making sure that the retraction and apology would be would be prominent that it would be that it would be noticed. And so rather than just having it appear in in the newspaper on a section of the website, it was important to us that it it appear in some of the social media platforms that have been instrumental to spreading the conspiracy theory, Twitter being one of those in and that is why the you see the Washington Times is is sending out the retraction you know, not just on a post on its website but also through messages on Twitter. We, we have found that in, you know, in our work, representing individuals who become victims of these conspiracy theories that one of the real difficulties today is finding an effective mechanism for for counter speech. Traditionally, our, our constitutional order and our first amendment values hold at the way you fight speeches with speech. And if somebody says something. That's not true about you. The best remedy for that is a platform for speech that helps you sort of rebut or argue against that the difficulty is the way the media environment is fragmented and the way that social media can spread information quickly without the same kind of editorial standards that once sort of governed and served as a gatekeeper for media publication of information, it becomes really difficult to fight back against false facts once they're spread far enough. And so one of the things that we think is really important is finding ways to channel these, these retractions apologies out into the different platforms that have served as vehicles to spread the false information in the first place. Yeah, used to think the internet was self healing, you know, and that a correction would go further than the than the false information, but I Don, I don't believe that anymore. It is clear that you know truly fake stories can spread viral, and the truth can barely keep up. So that's why you're saying it was important for for this correction. This apology to go out via Twitter via Facebook. Hope. Really spreading socially, right? Yeah, that's the idea. And you know, I think I think that it's a real challenge today to apply this sort of the old models of using communication strategies or a legal defamation strategy to fight back against conspiracy theories that spread it might. It might start on, you know, one post on a a red, it former fortune form and then spread and then start spreading through Twitter, and then it appeared makes its way on an appears on, you know, a couple of news sites and then suddenly it's everywhere. And so as you work backwards through that chain, if you actually want to reach the individuals in the communities that believe this information to be true, you have to figure out ways to get the message to get the true incorrect information into those communities. So it's it's more challenging than just having an apology or retraction you know, up here in the traditional in the traditional places and forms in which they have it sure..

"Mcgann and this is in the. The Washington Times but it's been in a lot of places Mr. Trump's decision to decline to assert, executive privilege and attorney client privilege has come into question meaning why did they let? Mcgann go down there and? Talk. To me for thirty minutes why not say lawyer, client, no Mr. Dowd said it was smarter to waive the privileges and be transparent so as? To get the case over? With We, made available this is, I'm talking made available to thirty seven witnesses. They provided a million documents said Mr. down. Doubt in terms of Mcgann. He's right at the, heart of. The case they had a lot to cover with him at a lot of notes it. Was all routine. Very normal the anonymous sources that criticize us for our strategy don't realize. The alternative was a nightmare just a war The thinking is, that if we're transparent we got nothing to. Hide listening to thinking we didn't do anything. There was no collision and. Obstruction we didn't do, anything and. So yeah here's a million documents is thirty seven people you can talk to one of. Them Don Mcgann They thought they were speeding. The process along they thought that they, were moving it along so that they get. Ended to oppose this. Was to invite a war they. Have a war this. Is what, is, they're in a war they have been in. A war since Donald Trump got the Republican nomination They have been in a war since Donald Trump won the presidency. They were in a war during. The Trump transition and. The war intensified after Trump's inauguration and the. War is ongoing and it isn't gonna end until they get Trump impeached That. Is that whether they get a conviction in the Senate or not. Doesn't matter the objective here is an from the beginning has been impeachment now the best case scenario they were hoping, to drive Trump's approval numbers down with all these allegations They were. Hoping to separate you from Trump you know. This drill they wanted Trump supporters to. Abandon him if they could do that then they force Trump to resign and they thought they were going to be able to do that six to nine months, they've bombed. Out now they're going to impeach that's why winning the house. Is crucial and part of it FOX part of it is to get even for having impeach Clinton That's part of this the other part of it and as big if not larger Is the cure Undiluted raw hatred they have for Trump But it's It, to me it is indicative of a total misunderstanding of who and what they were. Up against And it's understandable in the sense and all these lawyers know each other they all have orifices in the swamp in the establishment and, they all extend to each. Other certain courtesies and, realities, and, accommodations, such as we, know your professional we. Know your high ranking we know you're smart blah blah. Blah this mutual respect business and Trump himself I'm sure thought that he was buying A little piece by hiring, some of these people who, were thus friendly with, Muller, and, his, investigative team and, so forth not realizing. What was what was going on here So now. That Muller hasn't founded this is the next key Now that Muller hasn't found, anything on collusion or obstruction It is time to make people think that he has In preparation for his report Now I am given to understand that everybody involved in, this on the Trump side the lawyers. And the spokespeople communication shop everybody is expecting a blistering report from Muller because that's all Muller is going. To be able to. Do there isn't any collusion and by the way Some of you? Have asked me rush I. Keep hearing all these people say the Manafort trial and the Cohen staff and the, Russian indictments all proved that the mother. Doesn't have anything but what's the likelihood that Muller does and is waiting till October to indict Trump or. Some such thing I. Don't think so folks And? I I'll tell you why Mcgann's. Poked Muller a long time ago. We're just now hearing about it they want you to, think it happened. Over the weekend but he, didn't it, was a while ago And nothing, has come of it there haven't been any leaks from what mcgann's and, by the way I don't want. Anybody to think that I think Mcgann. Flipped that's not at all but. I think here there are people trying to make you, think that but. They're not succeeding with me That's not, what I think went on here I think. Fear was driving everybody on the Trump team I always have just like Republicans, have been afraid of the media for all these. Years afraid of what the media will say about them I think I think Some. People even on the Trump. Legal team have been afraid of reputation damage of angering Muller and other people with whom, they're going to have to continue to work long. After Trump is gone I, know that's how, many of the things but I don't believe Mcgann flipped I don't have the evidence for it is this Since the time. Mcgann spoke to Muller and it's it's. Not recent We've had two indictments against Russians that do not contain a hint of a suggestion that the Trump campaign had anything to do with collusion with Russia The Manafort indictments have nothing to do with Trump period or the Trump campaign So what it tells me is that this is all about obstruction And they're trying to say with in this in this Mcgann. Story in the New York. Times that Trump was trying to fire it's, all about firing Muller they have tried to bait Trump. Into firing Muller Muller has tried to bait Trump into firing him I think a number of people on the anti-trump site had been bathing Trump and hoping that they would make him mad enough or take. Him off enough to make him fire Muller and maybe even Rosenstein And. That way they could structure an obstruction obstruction he's firing the guy investigative and they would make the case for the American people that Trump scared got something to hide is obstructing and accepted it hasn't happened So the Mcgann starting a New York Times is about how well Trump was trying to there is no. Trying to fire And you either do it or you don't but the spin is that Trump really. Really wanted to and Mcgann roic Interceded every time. And talk sense into Trump and made, sure that he didn't do it But the the time line for a lot of this was suggest that Muller does not have a case Because Trump's action so far have been lawful and within his constitutional prerogatives and that's what Mcgann told Muller Mcgann told Muller that he's not seen any obstruction. That had not seen any lawbreaking That's what Mcgann to what mcgann's ticked off about is they let him go down there and talk that they waived privilege. For a tick what he was special, counsels requested to talk to all these people normally the special counsel. Lawyers told her go pound sand executive client privilege or, executive privilege. Lawyer client privilege what. Do you mean talk to one of my lawyers you can't they let him go and. It was again too early on. Were trying to show they got nothing to hide they're trying to show their cooperative it's the equivalent of I can show I can cross the aisle and work with Democrats to make Washington work to get things that same kind of thinking Because they afraid if they said no that they would be starting. A war with Muller and then. When Muller really gets mad really all we don't want any part of that what do you mean when Muller really gets mad none of this is legitimate None of it is not one aspect of, this investigation is legitimate none of it ought to. Be happening I have to take a, break but we've been through this anyway that's pretty. Much them against her there's a couple of things? That could add to it But man do we know what we're talking about here. Not you heard Al Sharpton blew the spelling of respect during his. Tribute to Aretha not only did he.
