Following Kamala Harris' Criticism, Joe Biden Defends His Civil Rights Record
"The exchange everybody is talking about from the debate last night is the exchange between joe biden and kamala harris in which she unfairly attacked him in the most cynical possible fashion she started off by suggesting that joe biden joe i really believe you're not a racist okay when somebody says i believe you're not a racist you know what's coming next which is all the reasons why she thinks he's a racist should that last night it was really cynical she then suggested that his lack of support for forced busing in nineteen seventy seven that this was reflective of a deep underlying racial animus that joe biden that cruel old man would have stopped little gung kamala from going to a school across town that's joe biden stood in front of that bus like george wallace at a school house door and stopped young comma from being able to attend the school of her dreams in berkeley california is bunch of nonsense cynical nonsense no one's still comma harass you know it's funny we're talking about forced busing forced busing was originally designed to achieve racial balance in the schools to achieve integration in the schools today there's more defacto segregation in american schools than there was back in the nineteen eighties so should we do forced busing now like kamla do you propose to forcibly bus tens of thousands of american school children across town to various schools both crappy a non crappy do you expect the parents won't then remove their kids from those schools do expect that will lead to a rise in charter schools or in private schools or home schooling what exactly proposing the beauty of comal harris does here is that she doesn't make policy proposal because if she did it would be unpopular instead she just implies that if you don't support a broad non non specific policy proposal that she apparently likes then you must have hated her when she was Child. She attacked Biden, Biden doesn't have a good response for it. i do not believe you are a racist and i agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground but i also believe and personal and i was actually very it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two united states senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of grace in this country and his second so there she's already being dishonest that's not what your biden said which biden said is i didn't like these guys i had to negotiate with them 'cause i'm in the senate now come on harrison's a radical she's never negotiated with anybody on the other side is one of the more dislike members of the of the senate particularly like there's certain senators like cory booker who has friends on the other side of the aisle i'm not aware that kamala harris has any on the other side of the aisle she's one of those cynical radical players in the senate when she suggests that biden is fulsomely praising segregationist it's nonsense you'll hear biden respond to that in a moment then she gets to her real attack which is that biden was going to prevent her from going to school when she was six it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing and you know there was a little girl in california who is part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day and that little girl was me so i will tell you that on this subject it cannot be an intellectual debate among democrats we have to take it seriously we have to act swiftly as a torney general california i was very proud to put in place a requirement that all my special agents would wear body cameras and keep those cameras on Okay. shifts this right so she she gets a huge round of applause oh the first of all there are a couple of things worthy of note one she says in that clip we can't have an intellectual debate about this i thought that's what policy debates were were where we talk about the costs and benefits of particular proposals not the innate morality of the proposal not the implication that you are more moral than the other guy for proposing something that is completely unworkable which is what she's doing right here and then she doesn't shift to and that is why as attorney general and presidential candidate and senator i have always supported forced busing of children right that would be the logical corollary would for would be for her to say you know you didn't support for busing i do an enforced busing is the way we aren't as we ought to be forcing kids in public schools from different areas to get on buses and we ought to be bussing them forty five minutes here so that we can achieve my ideal racial balance that's our she goes notice instead she goes to and that's why i support body cameras that is the biggest non sequitur that is a huge first of all i support body but it's such a huge non-sequitur right you would expect her to say okay and that's why i support forced busing she doesn't so she's actually saying here's a policy that i may or may not support but if you don't support your racist because you're white and when i was young i could only go to school because of forced busing even though i can't really say whether i support forced busing now i like body cameras notice the it it's a clever move to biden has no response because he's on a democratic debate stage and everybody is pandering on this debate stage he can't really say to harris listen i want you and i always wanted people to be able to go to the best school possible because he didn't support school vouchers for example or the ability to move between communities on a balance area but not a fourth based on a voluntary basis to go to a better public school he's never believed in that so he can't actually say that then he can't say force busing was a bad policy not approved by the vast majority of americans because then she'll say are you saying that i shouldn't have been able to go to a better school when i was a kid right she's demagoguing the issue and there's no way for him of to get out of it the only thing he could do here is say listen if you're suggestion is that my opposition to a particular set of badly written policies in the nineteen seventies makes me racially insensitive you're knowing my entire history you say that you were a kid and you were affected by these policies guess who is fighting to open up civil rights in america this and eventually biden gets to this answer it just takes them too long and he doesn't look good doing it so here's a little bit more of the exchange You have been invoked your chance to restart. this characteristic my position across the board i did not praise racist that is not true number one number two if we want to have this campaign litigated who supports civil rights whether i did or not i'm happy to do that i was a public defender i didn't become a prosecutor i came out i left a good law firm to become a public defender when in fact when in fact when the fact my city was inflamed because of the sausage dr king number one number two as the u._s. as me as the vice president is states i worked with a man who in fact we worked very hard to see to it we don't with these issues in a major major way the fact is that in terms of bussing the busing i never would have been able to go to school the same exact way because it was a local decision made by your city council that's fine that's one of the things argued for that we should not be we should be break down these lines but so the bottom line here is look everything i've done in my career i ran because of civil rights i continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights and those civil rights by the way include not just african americans but the

And so, but bar bar sat down in Bari, he, I only could only wish that he had been picked as Torney general in, in, in January of twenty seventeen. I mean I like Jeff Sessions and he did a great job for Trump on the campaign trail, but let's be honest, he was at disaster is attorney general, you never should have recused himself. And this guy bar is his he is such a great. He has not only has a great impact, but he also has a great temperament. He just he doesn't get flustered at all.

And that's what he's doing with these guys. Maybe they didn't know that they were trying to overthrow the United States constitution. Maybe they thought they were doing the right thing.

"He, he didn't want to go to war with the Torney general bar, because there are over three witnesses that heard Muller say, just the opposite of what he said. And then when you look a little bit further and dig a little bit deeper. The the median. Fight of their breathless hysterical reporting, and takeaway and foaming at the mouth, it appears and it looks as if Bill bar called Muller out on what was a contradictory statement that he made in front of many others on multiple occasions, at least three occasions. And now all of a sudden, they have to release a joint statement oopsy daisy, the attorney general, and by the way Carey coup pack is a spokesman for the department of Justice. Peter car spokesperson for these special counsel's office after the Muller tobacco it Torney general has previously stated that the special counsel repeatedly repeatedly that means again and again, and again and again, a firm that he was not saying that, but for the office of legal counsel opinion, he would have found the president of struck the Justice the special counsel's report and his statement today made clear. That the office concluded it would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president committed a crime. There's no conflict between these statements, you know, if you look at that analysis, you know, and everything in between here is Muller basically is admitting that he never had the authority to conclude, but he did could have. Anyway, joining us now. We have Danielle McLaughlin and Jonathan Vilma with us Jonathan. It's amazing that they ignored the joint statement clarification of Muller statements because of the three witnesses that said, well, hang on. Muller didn't say that in the past, he said, just the opposite. They're not interested in they've shown us over and over again. They're not interested in totality of the fact, they're not interested in statements that don't affirm the truth. They're only interested in statements that affirm what they believe, in, you know, when you re listened before I came on, I just relisted to molar statement, and one thing really stuck out in particular, and all the jargon. The says this way or that way, one thing that he, particularly says, is that based on the fairness doctrine, they could not charge somebody with a crime, that could not be proven in a court of law. Well, that means that it, it did not happen. They don't have evidence. There's not evidence to prove that in a quarter of law. So the way and it was, there would have been nothing to stop Robert Muller from saying that he believes the threshold in terms of a crime being committed. He believes was committed. He could have said all of that. Of course. Next. What makes no sense he leaves everybody down this road in these statements. I think for pure political reasons. He leaves these people down this road having them have the hope that there's something there. And I'm talking about people on the left is hope that something is there that he just can't talk about because he can't charge a sitting president. But then he says this one little thing that based on fairness, he could not charge somebody where they could not prove a crime in a quarter of law, that means that there was no crime, well, an evidence for crime Danielle, you know, when the attorney general member, we had the independent counsel statute because people lie and we got rid of it, because people like Jerrold Nadler Jerrold Nadler, did not want the star report released star was doing his job at the time in the eleven you literally had eleven specific crimes laid out by then independent counsel, Ken.

And I do think we have a better chance than we had when you have a strong center right coalition, led by Netanyahu now back to attorney general William Barr who is just great great great job at the Senate appropriations committee. I believe yesterday. Let's play the whole thing. This is him talking about what happened in two thousand sixteen cut number ten. I because I said in my confirmation hearing, I am going to be reviewing both the Genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed at the Trump campaign during two thousand sixteen and a lot has already been invented a lot of this has already been investigated in the substantial portion of it has been investigated is being investigated by the office of inspector general at department, but one of the things I wanna do is pulled together all the information from the various investigations that have gone on including on the hill. And in the department and see if there are any remaining questions to be addressed. And can you share with us? Why you feel a need to do that? Well, you know, for the same well for the same reason, we're worried about foreign influencing elections, we wanna make sure that during lecture I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal to big deal generation. I grew up in which is the Vietnam war period. You know, people were all concerned about spying on antiwar people and so forth by the government. And there are a lot of rules put in place to make sure that there's an adequate basis before before our law enforcement agencies get involved in politics and political surveillance. I'm not suggesting that those rules were violated. But I think it's important to look at that. And I'm not just I'm not talking about the FBI necessarily intelligence agencies, more broadly. So you're not you're not suggesting though that spine occurred. I don't well. I guess you could I think there's spying Kerr. Yes. I think spying that occur. Well, let me question is whether was predicated adequately predicated, and I'm not suggesting it wasn't adequately predicated, but I'd need to explore that. I think it's my obligation congress usually very concerned about intelligence agencies and law enforcement agency staying in their proper lane. And I wanna make sure that happened. We have a lot of rules about that. And I wanna say that that I said, I'm reviewing this. I am going. I haven't set up a team yet. But I do have I've been mind having some colleagues helped me pull all this information together. And let me know whether there's some areas that should be looked at. And I also want to make clear this is not launching an investigation of the FBI. I frankly to the extent there were there any issues at the FBI, I do not view it as a problem that's endemic to the FBI. By I think, there was probably a failure among a group of leaders, they're at the upper echelon, and so I don't like the recaps about the FBI because I think the FBI's an outstanding organization, and I think you Chris Wray is a great partner for me. I'm I'm very pleased that he's fair is the director, and if it becomes necessary to to to look over some former officials activities, I expect that I'll be relying heavily on Christian and work closely with him and looking at that information, but that's what I'm doing. I feel I have an obligation to make sure that government power is not abused. I mean, I think that's one of the principal. Roles of the attorney general the Ray hurry, co Intel pro may be a name you haven't heard before. But back in the battle days. J Edgar the FBI got off the leash and the leashes supposed to be there. And they're not supposed to be in Paul. Politics. And I don't think they were in politics except as the. Attorney general explained that you've got a genuine problem with a handful of people at the very top of the icy in two thousand sixteen and he's looking into it. Play cut number eleven again. This is Torney general yesterday. Thank you. Mr Chairman could I just at one point of clarification that I just wanna to make it clear looking thinking back on all the different colloquy is here that I am not saying that improper surveillance occurred. I'm saying that I am concerned about it and looking into it. That's perfect. Perfect. Perfect. He also raises the one question on every ordinary person's mind about the two thousand sixteen campaign cut number twelve. Elegance investigation against a presidential candidate that you have to have a very good reason. Yes. Absolutely. And a counter intelligence investigation is designed to protect the target of foreign influences that correct that is correct. It's not a prosecutorial function isn't no unless unless espionage or some violation of espionage laws is develops. So would it be odd that the candidate was never really briefed? By the department of Justice that your campaign, maybe targeted bow foreign entity that is one of the questions. I have is is I feel normally the campaign would have been advised that this king, and can you think of a good reason right now why they wouldn't have been I'm interested in getting that answer they had to former US attorneys in Chris Christie and and moody Giuliani involved in the campaign. And I don't understand why the campaign was not advised. Apparently when Senator Feinstein had a person on her staff that was supposedly connected to the Chinese government. She was briefed is that the normal way you do things with a counterintelligence investigation. I think. She was briefed about a staff member that they thought might be connected. The Chinese government. She took action and fired the guys that sort of what you're supposed to be doing. That's what I would if I were Torney general in that situation came up. I would say, yes. Brief brief that the target of the foreign espionage activity. Okay. Yeah. That is what you would do. Now. The new Quinnipiac poll is out Joe Biden twenty six percent. I mean, Joe Biden Bernie Sanders and Pete Buddha. Judge are the only people are the only people in double digits. Elizabeth Warren is in fourth place and Kamala Harris behind her I think, this is going to be the nominee. That's my prediction. I'm hoping Bernie Sanders is the nominee. You know? I I lead Republicans for Bernie, but in in the primary and the general, but I because I think he's the true soul.

Resignation scandal mars Trudeau's shiny image
"Trudeau swept into power in Canada in two thousand fifteen championing equality, openness and social Justice, but the resignation of his attorney general who will let's shoot face pressure to go easy on one of the country's biggest companies in corruption case has dented this image. Nikki Zena discusses the case in what it means for Trudeau in the liberal party with Ravi, Matt and Amy Williams. Amy, tell us first about the company involved. SNC lavaman will the company has a few things, but bowling engineering company that works mainly with mining and energy services. So in this case, it's been accused of bribing Libyan officials around the time when he was in power. This is not as I brush with bribery, allegations the World Bank, actually, blacklisted its main subsidiary from bidding on projects and its own global corruption policy and that happened in two thousand thirteen over a project. It was worth on in Bangladesh. The key thing about the company in the stories that employs around nine thousand people across Canada. Most of those are in Quebec, which is the home for just intruders constituency in Montreal what was the attorney general's involvement, which Wilson rape, bogey Torney general. She was in a position to come up with the prosecution agreement with the company that would basically have seen him set. Lots of court avoiding huge find so base. Would have paid some money but being allowed to keep trading and avoid the court fees and big legal costs that would put them out of business. And who does she say put her under pressure to agree to a deferred prosecution agreement and why did she end up resigning? Well, she said that it was several people in Mr. Trudeau's government specifically in his office, and including Mr. shooter himself and Khushi his top advisor, Gerald books. Her resignation is a bit murky and a little unclear but what we do know is that shortly before she resigned, Mr. Trudeau effectively demoted her in a cabinet reshuffle and this caused quite a bit of upset. She initially refused to take the first portfolio that she was offered. So she was attorney general and Justice minister, Mr. to try to move her to indigenous services, which she climbed she eventually ended up at veterans affairs, and she shortly afterwards resigned. What has Mr. Trudeau said about this mister Suto and also his adviser Mr. buck who gave testimony to the Canadian House of Commons. Have both said that they did not try to force miss was able to make any kind of decision. They just asked her the independent advice and get a second opinion on her decision because they thought it was really important case lots of jobs are at stake. Mr. Trudeau has insisted he spoke to journalists day after Mr Bush gave testimony he insisted. That he was only ever trying to defend jobs as all he's ever tried to do and nine thousand jobs is really quite a lot of jobs to be lost. I know you've been wanting to hear from me directly on the SNC Lebanon issue. I've taken time to review the testimony to reflect on what has happened over the past months and on what our next steps should be. What has become clear through the various testimonies is that over the past months? There was an erosion of trust between my office. And specifically my former principal secretary and the former minister of Justice and attorney general I was not aware of that erosion of trust does prime minister and leader of the federal ministry. I should've been in regards to standing up for jobs and defending the integrity of our rule of law. I continue to say that there was no inappropriate pressure. Bearing in mind that elections are coming up in October. How has this all gone down with Canadian voters rudely, they don't like it? This Troodos popularity has taken a hit. And it's not looking all that good for him the elections approach. However in Quebec the province. Montreal is people are less bothered about this. And actually his popularity's is kinda held up in Quebec, they're a little more sympathetic to the view that jobs were at stake around three thousand of those nine thousand jobs in Quebec. And they are less unhappy with MRs Troodos alleged actions. Ravi you've written that Mr. Trudeau is partly to blame for setting impossibly high standards. Can you explain what you mean? Yeah. I mean, there's a couple of things there. I think first of all what needs to go back and understand why he won and how he won the election in two thousand thirteen to become prime minister, we need to remember that Mr. wasn't actually expected to win. He was in third place turning to other party leaders and play the Blinder in the campaign and suddenly became. Came prime minister with a massive majority. And I think the first mistake they made was to misunderstand their mandate. They thought the massive majority meant they had licensed to invoke a massive program of change in fact, because they went by surprise by good fortune in that voters had got fed up with the incumbent Stephen Harper. They didn't realize there was a bit of a delicate balance to achieve their the second bit was they one of the back of a progressive agenda. Mr. Trudeau had a great brand he sold himself as a modern politician whose advertising a more kind a more gentle immoral open way of governing and dean with politics rather than the very fractious way. Things are done in many other places including at times in Canada. But by holdings of that standard. He also needs to meet that Senator in government now for the first few years that kind of words he did very well on certain policy issues. He accepted twenty five thousand Syrian refugees into the country from the war, which is a very popular mid both within Canada and in June. Nationally, but further into government, he made some missteps party. I would argue because of the hubris I came with that stunning election victory. First of all he started to do things that flew in the face of that cleaner than clean impression. He was giving for example in twenty-six fell foul of ethics rules for taking a private family holiday on the private island of the con, the billionaire religious leaders not only did that contravene the rules in place for politicians. But it just looked really bad. It looked very elitist. When he told the world that he was anything. But similarly in terms of the people who put in place around him, Amy mentioned Gerald butts who's as close as adviser, but Mr. bus was also his best friend. They know each other for thirty years they met at McGill University and invariably when you put your best friend in your office as your closest advisor, even the smartest person in the world will find it impossible to separate the personal and the professional. And that was certainly impression given and that chumminess once again went to undercut pretty severely, the progressive agenda that open of politics that he advertised when he campaigned for office, and indeed nearly years of his tenure so you've already touched on this a bit, but looking towards the next election, and how he starting to campaign now, what would you say are has notable achievements, and what are his failures while a couple of things. I mean, he has achieved things I talked with the Syrian refugee policy. He's also legalized cannabis which was a big campaign promise of his and he certainly tried to create a different impression of how poses can be done. But if you count all the things where he failed in the city meet the targets, he said, they include reforming the electoral system. He hasn't done that finding a way of building a pipeline from the oil signs of northern Alberta to the Pacific coast of BC. He has done that reconciling relations with indigenous populations. He hasn't achieved that so they're a litany of these things where he set. Very vicious goals, and he just didn't achieved. And so I think unfortunately, while he has made some serious achievements. Such as renegotiate NAFTA agreement with Donald Trump. They're also number failures that his opponents will hold against them. And how well placed is Canada's opposition to capitalize on Mr. Trudeau's weaknesses. Well, go into the election. I think that's one of actually his advantages. So eighty mentioned that Mr. Trudeau's poll numbers of taking a hit. And yet the liberal government the liberal party, which he leads still is more or less neck and neck with the obstinate conservatives, and I think one of the things that he has to best advantage is the fact that his opposition rivals are relatively new leaders in their own, right? And they suffer from their own credibility issues. So Andrea sherr of the conservatives and the leftist NDP's Jagmeet Singh are both quite noon to the job. And they too are having some issues around trying to prove to the public that there are credible alternative. So in terms of how well the opposition can capitalize on it. They're doing the best to make sure this as in the news there. Making sure that it's very hard for the government to talk about anything else. Every press conference at happens invariably, the tension terms to this topic around the essence see Lebanon scandal and the resignation so it's very hard to change the Genda. However, the weakness of the opposition does give Mr. to who remains a very charming character and someone who can certainly connect with people gives them a plausible chance going into the election. So Amy what happens with the SNC level in case after this? We could you will rape with decision was not offer the prosecution agreement which means they have to go to trial. So there's already a hearing underway and a criminal trial will probably happen within an ear. Yes. Data what AB said, although wasn't able to make sure this is going to trawl from what it seems the political stray hasn't ended a lot of pressure on the top civil servant in Canada. Who's also been drawn into the affair and his role there further questions the opposition is raising about whether they'll process of how cases like this handled is inappropriate. And whether in fact. An independent third party should Judy Kate over the process. So the politics is obviously very strong and carrying on. And the opposite is gonna do their best to make sure this stays in the headlines. And of course, our media colleagues are watching very closely in Canada too.

"I agreed voluntarily you didn't serve as a bean on me. I run to committee on the witness how nice well, the chair of the committee. That is just that. That's that's so disrespectful. That is so horrible that is broken about twenty eight norms. And I don't think there's enough norms left. Nobody's naming a kid Norma. Thank you. Breaking the norms eight we ran out of norms, just repeat the question. So so people remember what we're talking about in your capacity is acting attorney general have you ever been asked to approve any requests their action to be taken by the special counsel. Mr Chairman, I as the acting Torney general I. Under the special counsels. Rules. I am the person that is ultimately in charge of the investigation. And I have exercised that authority under the special counsels regulations of the department Justice. In other words, he's avoiding saying anything I want to be very specific about this. It's going to lie a lot of fears that have existed among this committee among the legislative branch largely and maybe among some American people. We have followed a special counsel's regulations to a T. There has been no events. No decision. That is required me to take any action. And I have not interfered in any way with a special counsel's investigation, nor has he recused which if he'd been following the regulations he should have done. So he gave that kind of vague statement. I haven't I haven't done anything. I haven't approved anything. But look the whole point was to not say anything of substance. He's not going to be the attorney general and the weak, right? The the the Senate is about to confirm William bar, and so William bars about to be as soon as they confirmed he'll be sworn in within a few hours and. Matthew Whitaker's gone. So understand my perspective on this is just my perspective. Is the Democrats knew all they're not dumb. They knew all this stuff that I'm sharing with you. They know Matthew Whitaker's got very few days left as so-called acting attorney general they know that they're not going to get another chance to get him under oath. They once he's out. He's out. I mean, maybe moral goes to the guy with a subpoena one day to find out if there's anything relevant, but from Congress's perspective, they're going to want to talk to the new actual attorney general's to what's going on in real time. Then that day, right? A couple of weeks from now whatever Matthew Whitaker is about to be yesterday's news. And the Democrats know that and they know that he he, you know, he's about to be gone. So the value of Matthew Whitaker from my perspective. The value of Matthew Whitaker today for the Democrats was these clips on playing for you to show America people or whoever's willing to pay attention amongst the American people that Benedict Donald hires the best people believe me. Right. They wanted to create a spectacle. They wanted to show America. What a clown. What an unqualified imbecile what a political. This guy is believe me only the best people believe me.

"Brexit altogether for more. We're joined by Bloomberg's EMMY unused are actor, David merrit. Who's with us in the studio. Good morning. David great to have you with us. So. Bloomberg is talking about a fresh Brexit battle that may have to face this week. What is that about? Well, there's a technical issue that the labor party now raised this is about the legal advice at the government's been given behind closed doors about whether the what the implications are of they're still now the attorney general Geoffrey Cox, he'll be talking to lawmakers later on today. The conservative party is saying we will not release mentioned, it's privileged. Client, attorney information. The little potus saying this is too big a deal for us to be in the dark about we want to hear about it. Now. Some of these details, of course, Lee had leaked over the weekend. It seemed unconfirmed reports about what this advice says why the conservatives not wanting to release it because it's obviously makes quite uncomfortable. Reading it includes apparently an assertion that the Irish backstop suggestion could trap Britain indefinitely into this customs arrangement with the European Union. So that's potentially explosive. It means yet more negative sentiment. Around this deal, and it's perhaps persuade even more Tory. Backbench MP's to vote against the government in this big vote next week. How's this week on to play out? David. I mean, the debates officially starts tomorrow parliament rights when it comes to the divorce deal. That's right. We're going to see many hours of debate on this issue led by various ministers in the house of Commons this week. This question about the legal legal argument is actually a little bit more long-term, even if there was a motion to try to force the government. I think we've got time for that to go through parliament's and hoping that just the publicity around it may force the government's hand. But yes, we're going to see lots of debates in parliament as the week goes on. And maybe as we get closer to that vote on the eleventh of December. There are reports in much of the British press about whether the rich are going to go ahead with it. If the numbers still looks so bad is she gonna keep plowing on and have a vote, which he may lose by one hundred two hundred votes. I think that's the big. Question. This week is is it really sustainable for. Mrs may go ahead with something which is looking about all people are going to start changing their mind. This idea of a confidence vote coming straight off to you know, this may actually serve in Mrs Maes favor because it may shop in the minds of some payroll MP's who think will you know, what I'm actually going to pull back from the brink at the last minute. Just very briefly David are you saying there's a possibility? The December eleventh vote might not happen various reports the sun newspaper suggesting some ministers are lobbying for that to happen. Maybe postpone it maybe asked MRs may to go back to Europe because the European Council meets a few days after towards the end of next week. Voters on winnable. There's nothing I can do I need to have some more concessions as you said earlier. Of course, the European leaders have said, it's this deal or no Brexit all so they've been pretty firm. Yeah.

Is emphatically not the duty of the courts to manage the United States government to pass judgment on every policy action at the executive branch takes make matters worse. The idea that any district judge can demand to see the deliberations of the executive branch will also inevitably have a chilling effect subjecting the executive branch. So this kind of discovery is not acceptable. It's just not. And we intend to fight it. And we intend to win. Torney general Jeff Sessions. That's right. Hearing from Jeff a little bit. It's always nice to hear from the man. I think that he understands and has understood all along that the judiciary is, unfortunately, a hotbed of hashtag resistance. And that you have all you have a lot of judges who for whatever reason have taken it upon themselves that they need to stand for Trump and the executive power that he clearly has and do everything they can to stop it. They view themselves as a check based upon constitutional interpretation or no they just don't like what Trump does. And these activists judges need to stop and this effort to try and get around executive privilege. You know, you you saw this with the Cavanaugh hearings where there's all their have enough documents over documents. They don't get to see everything that was ever done in the Bush White House just because they want to find something to try and slime cavenaugh with and you know, that all they really had to do is wait around until their nonsense assault allegations could be level. That was the whole point. That was the game they were playing. So why pretend like there was something else going on? Of course, as we know they have no honor. So they have no honor to protect that gives you a lot of latitude with these matters. But the whole issue of judges and activist judges is a reminder of both what was done to this country before by the Obama administration, and what is at stake in the midterms and just a few weeks. President Obama was responsible when his eight years for stacking the federal courts with about thirty percent of federal judges became Obama appointees. A huge number. Those are appointments that will be around for decades. So Obama left or more, and we see that Mark on the courts now because they are standing in front of Trump's agenda and making ridiculous the ninth circuit. I'm surprised they're not going to overturn whatever court told stormy Daniels at her defamation suit with avenue dotty wasn't going forward, and actually stormy Daniels might have to pay the legal fees incurred by Trump. That's quite a loss in the world of a defamation case that is quite a smackdown. The judges matter. They matter even more to the left. They matter to us because we just hope the judges will keep things even in fair. They hope the judges will hand them what they could never get through the legislative process. So judges are essential to the leftist project. And that's why the more judges that we can get that. Our constitutional conservatives the less they can put up there who are leftist legislators in black robes, and it obviously really agitates some that is which is fun. It is fun. You know, own the lips. Sometimes it's something you gotta do. It's fun. I am absolutely in favour of pudding as many constitutional conservatives as possible in the court as fast as possible and Mitch McConnell has been doing that, by the way, even more judges. I mean, they're just Mitch McConnell is a lean mean judge confirmation machine. That's right arm, and he's doing whatever he can to get that done. And that's his legacy as a conservative. He knows it. You know, you say what you will about Mitch and the swamp and all that stuff he has been a warrior for conservative judges getting on the bench getting the highest courts as we know with cavenaugh and elsewhere. That's at stake, though, here if the Democrats were to take control of the Senate, you could say goodbye to getting any good judges through. If the Democrats take control of the Senate, it's going to be a complete stoppage on federal judges unless you put forward, America garland type, and anyone who you think might be kind of a centrist. According to the way, the media describes them trust me that judge is a leftist. So you might get somebody like America Arlanda come through. But overall, they'll they'll bring it to a screeching halt. So so at some level, there's there's a judge issue at stake your judges are at stake with the midterms. I think we're good on that in the Senate side. But then you go to the house side of the equation. You realize that we will be subjected to? A stoppage of Trump's most important policy agenda items, if the Democrats take the house, it'll be over, you know, maybe they'll play a little little footsie with our side when it comes to an infrastructure Bill. But it's it's over in terms of getting a wall immigration reform, all that that's not gonna happen. And we are going to be in a two year long grinding battle. Where all the media is to want to do is try to exact revenge on Trump and all of his supporters for the humiliations that they've endured at the media's endured for the last couple of years, you'll be treated you the most politicized nonsensical investigations imaginable. And you will see sure enough that they're going to make this about about impeachment. Even if they no they can't remove the president. They want to impeach him. Just to put a stain on his presidency that they can venues to try to run someone at twenty twenty. Now, the good news for us. Is that the Democrats so far have nobody realistic that they can run against Trump a twenty twenty? I mean, it's this list that I saw early this week at CNN had the polling on on who could be who could be up against drama mean you at the topless Joe Biden, come on guys Biden, that's the best. You can do. Below Biden you had Warren. I don't think she's exactly going to be a threat. I don't think I don't think warrants got it. You had some other names on their Kamala. Harris why because she check some boxes that the left likes nothing that you've ever seen her do legislatively, or otherwise, I was impressive. And I've heard from people that it was someone on her staff. I don't know this. But the rumor that I'm reporting on a room right now, you can yell at me later that have someone on her staff not Feinstein staff that actually that information. I don't have proof of that. I'm not naming anybody obviously because I don't have proof of it. But that was what I heard and that wouldn't surprise me. We had that other staffer Aqa congressional staffer who's leaking the personal information of Republican senators dachshund them straight up dachshund. He's facing real time in prison, he should go. But I hope the GOP has had a wakeup call here. And that's really what I'm focused on. I I hope that Republicans at every person who voted for Trump understands that all the good things that are happening calm to effectively come to a if not a halt. Let's say they they continue at half power at best shortlist. They'll be some executive order still there'll be deregulatory stuff. But we lose the house. You're going to see that the resistance will dig in and all of the. Craziness that we've seen them engage in last year's all that anti-trump.
