Shady Deals at Trump Properties
"President surrounds himself with criminals? His campaign chair. His deputy campaign chair is former national. Security Adviser you. You get the picture and as a rule if you're a politician that kind of thing isn't generally a great move but it does offer one surprising benefit when one of those folks turns turns on you you can point to their own shading dealings and say what anyone trust this person and as the president has defenders go after Parnasse repeating the same. You can't trust him line or I don't even know him remember. We have seen this all before with the last bag. Man Who talked about President Michel Com for about a decade Cohn was the Executive Vice President Trump Organization and Donald Trump's special counsel in September of two thousand seventeen profile of him appeared in Vanity Fair entitled. Michael Cohen would take a bullet for Donald Trump. The piece points out cones extreme loyalty to the president quote cone has been described as the sixth trump child. Or as Tom Hagen in this twisted version of the Godfather and sometimes as both Michael Cohen was the president's fixer but that relationship started to fall apart in early early twenty eighteen as news leaked out of illegal hush money payments made to women ahead of presidential election by April the FBI had redid. Cohen's office and hotel room in Hatton seizing recordings electronic devices. Initially the president was supportive of his longtime attorney. Michael lawyer who. I've always liked him respected. Most most people will flip if the government lets out of trouble sorry. I don't see Michael doing that. Despite the horrible which hunt and the dishonest media but on the day after Cohen pleaded guilty to do eight federal crimes including campaign finance violations. Implicating the president directly as an unindicted co-conspirator individual one the president trashed him quote. If anyone is looking for a good lawyer I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen burn months later. Cohen found himself before Congress delivering a warning. I did the same thing that you're doing now. For Ten years I protected Mr Trump on for ten years and I can only warn people the more people that follow. Mr Trump as I did blindly are going to suffer the same consequences suances that I'm suffering. Michael Cohen pulled back. The curtain. On trump world in two thousand eighteen and live parnasse did that last night telling us what an absolute cesspool of conflicts flicks of interest corruption and shady characters around the President United States. We'll talk about that next today. The the FBI showed up at the home of Robert F. Hide just days after the house. Intelligence Committee released text messages. Provided by indicted Giuliani associate partners in which hide appears to be representing sending himself as actively surveilling then. US Ambassador Ukraine revanche high was told NBC News. He was drunk and unserious when he sent those tax. The question you have to ask ask yourself is how did someone like Robert. Hi gain access to the United States and the answer to that was laid out by himself told Rachel maddow how easy it is to get. Close the presents inner circle just show up at the trump international hotel in Washington DC. That's how Parnasse himself met Robert. Hi You met him where I met him at the I think the trump hotel yes trump hotel. He was a regular at the bar because it was like a breeding ground that trump hotel so it every event would be there so everybody would hang out there afterwards. Everybody all the meetings would be there. So it's basically you would see the same people every day or the same congressman that supported the president would be there and nobody else so he was a fixture on site he was always there and but he was always drunk. What you got in the stands where the trump hotel it's like one a big Cesspool and there's really hard to keep any secrets for more on that Cesspool joined by independent journalists sack efforts in the last two years staking out the trump hotel and writing up what he saw in the eleven hundred Pennsylvania newsletter and an article for Vanity Fair titled Power Tripping the swamp how trump's DC hotel swallowed Washington Zach. This is your beep deep probably more than it is anyone's beaten. I'm curious how is description. Squared with what you've been reporting over the last two years it's spot on. I mean Robert Hyde was on my radar Ariza early as April e. You look at his instagram. And they were pictures of him with the president pictures of him with the vice president all sorts of important people and for him it actually transcended ended the trump hotel. I think he was at six different trump properties. But if you want to project important you can just go hang out at the hotel and take some pictures one of the things that has struck me about about this where we are right now. The impeachment is usually it is very hard to get to the present United States and and and that's for that can be really maddening for people when you're trying to if you're working in the in the staff of the White House and you want to get the president something on his agenda. It's hard to get to him This president seems remarkably easy to get to buy all kinds of people with all kinds of agendas and it seems like his properties are the nexus of this this kind of soft corruption absolutely. I spoke to the president at the trump trump hotel. I was staying there researching one of my articles in for the cost of a nice steak dinner I was able to chat with the president which mix for really good social media posts there so if you you just you know hanging out there take your pictures with your Kevin McCarthy user Mike Pence's as they go back and forth now they're usually not upfront in the bar they're usually going back and forth from the entrance way way to private rooms but see them coming and going you can collect enough pictures and you look like you're really important and then what do you do with that really important the look like you're really important. Well well I think with Robert Heidi. He's using it to run for Congress and there are certainly some other people who are running for Congress typically Republican challengers who seem to be collecting pictures of themselves to the trump hotel. But I've seen some people move from the lobby where the lesser swamp. Thing's hang out to the back rooms and I. I don't know exactly what they're doing to get back there. But looking on social media it almost looks like that they are puffing up their importance with a lot of pictures and then all of a sudden they kind of get to be important That's interesting what. What do you mean by backrooms described it because at one point apartments talking about a private dinner with the president which I think happens there in the hotel room? What is what's the sort of distinction between the the the lobby bar in the backrooms actual important power players are so there's really two tiers if you go out in the lobby? That's where you're gonNA find you not even Fox News host but like Fox News guests are going to be hanging out there. People who really wanted to be seen in need to be seen to kind of project some sort of importance but they may not actually be that important example. Corey Lewandowski is somebody. You'll see it there rudy. Giuliani was the exception to that. But it's the back rooms. It's the trump townhouse which is where if died with dined with the president. And it's the Franklin study in the Lincoln Library where they had those private events. And that's where you'll see the mingling with special interest groups that have flown in lobbyists. Anybody can see them coming back and forth though to the main entrance which is where some of these other interactions come from and is that final question here like do like my understanding from the reporting we haven't from the disclosures that special interest groups if you're trying to get a rag changed if you're trying to get a piece of legislation like they we know that's the place to go and that's where those back room meetings happen. It can't hurt. There's absolutely no downside to booking the trump hotel now. I spoke to lobbyist obvious really early on when it was clear that hotel was going to stick around. said they're going to go there to try to influence them in response was of course they are. Why wouldn't they yeah? Search efforts in who's been covering this beaten his newsletter. Thanks a

They were never suited for sometime seemingly without so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia. That is pretty stunning. Okay. But most of the venom as I said last night is reserved for Jared Kushner because this guy done locked up Jared's. Daddy. And for quite some time and was very venomous about it. And I don't think that Jared forgot that so Jared at every turn we're trying to undermine and poison anything that the president wanted to do for Christie, but some interesting insight at his first meeting with Trump in two thousand and two at a dinner in the Trump International hotel and tower in New York, Trump ordered food for him. It's like you with a child he ordered for him. He chose scallops to which Christie is allergic. And lamb, which he is always detested. That's hilarious.

"And then ultimately, what can be shared with the American people. They're also anticipating that the White House is gonna fight back right away that once that requests goes to the they'll be requests for injunctions and. Go back to Newt Gingrich you as Newt described some months ago saying now, we now we get quote now, we get to see whether that investment capital is worth it. All right. So what's the legal argument here? What's the legal argument on on your side and getting the tax returns? And what's the house the White House going to push back? What's going to be there? That's that's I probably can't give you an adequate answer. But that's a really good question. Because one of the things that chairman Neil has said is that we can't just say, hey, show us the texture. We the ways and means committee have to have a bona fide good legal rationale for asking to see the presents the legal. Oh, well, I'm not writing the brief. But I would say as Don Byer speaking that there are so many suggestions that the president's behavior for with Russia of others has must be inextricably linked to his financial fortune. Why else would he give Putin a pass on dander, everything from Crimea? To believing his intelligence rather than our own intelligence agencies. His willingness to criticize everybody in the world, except Putin is strongly suggests that when no US-backed wanted to lend the Trump organization anymore that these are Russian funds coming out of Cyprus and places like that. So I think when you when you get any McCain saying there was reasonable concern that he could be a Russian agent the best way to start with that does he those tax returns. Well, and he's also he has not been transparent about his business dealings in Russia. I mean after we started doing some reporting on the Trump Moscow tower really now has become abundantly clear that when he got up and said, I have no business interests in Russia. That was not correct. He well, he was pursuing business interests at that very time. We have a semantic argument on the also know the New York Times Washington Post the times that this man has lied is absolutely historic. And this is also a commitment that he. Made all through the campaign. The first president in longtime not to share his tax returns that in this isn't an average citizen. This is president United States. Theoretically, the most powerful person in the world American people have a right to know. Do you think we would before twenty twenty before the elections? Again, I'm not a lawyer. But personally, no, I think we need to do the best weekend to get them. But it's been suggested more than once that it could be tied up in court for years. Okay. You are a member of congress from Virginia. And there's been a bit of controversy, shall we say to say the least about what's been going on in your state at the highest levels.

"So he still doesn't have that. Thank goodness. So but Trump does have the prerogative to basically overrule any this? Right. We introduce legislation just on this to say the president should not be making the decision on his internal staff on security clearances should be made by the FBI director. It has not passed yet. But so so is their next step on this can you call Klein to testify before congress and grill him about what happened was he pressured to make this decision. Yeah. I hope so I'm not the chairman of any committee, but I think oversight and government reform, which is allies Cummings. It'd be perfect for Representative Cummings to bring Klein into do that. And we will if we have already we've probably will ask the chairman to do that. I was going to say we're approaching in April. I think it'll be the two year anniversary of you pushing on this. And since then we've seen the Democrats take back the house, and we're seeing Cummings used the oversight committee to begin security clearance investigation, or they looping you into all that given that you were out in front of us. I'm not on the committee. They usually are gracious enough to let me attend the hearings off on the side. But yeah, we we talk all the time. Gerry Connolly's, one of the leaders on that? And he's a dear friend reclose. Now, you are on ways and means which is one of the committees that can go through the process to get the president's tax returns. Where do we stand on that? Are we going to see his tax returns qualified? Yes. For slow liberty quickly review the law. At least the way understand it is there to entities in congress that that can under this ancient law request the tax return of any American citizen was the joint taxation committee, which yours Democrats Republicans from from finance and tax on both sides on that's not likely to happen. Because of the Senate controlled by Republicans or the House Ways and means committee where we have twenty five twelve advantage. So our chairman Ritchie, Neil, Springfield, Massachusetts is going about this and a deliberate. Thoughtful way as he says, this is a really big important historic thing. He doesn't want to not do it. Right. Wants to make sure that he crossing all the TS and dotting all the is. And and so they've begun the process, by the way, as I understand it at least he's explained it to us. The the first step with his request is that the Internal Revenue Service will share it with him as the chairman confidential. He will then review it and decide what can be shared with the full committee..

"You know, and I was there at the Trump Tower press conference. Court filing. That's the one he used Twitter. Okay. I was there at the press conference where Sherry Dillon this lawyer came out and talked about how he had just gone so far above and beyond and distancing himself from his big stack of papers. Yes. And I tried to look at that. And they would not show it to me. Imagine wa I it's almost as though it was a giant blank stack of papers to look quite impressive. But I wouldn't want to speculate on that. But what we do know is that the president has not removed himself from his company. He's not divested from his company claims. He is no longer involved in day to day operation, but let's be very clear. The people who are are his family sons are running that company. So when you're patronizing this hotel, you are directly handing cash to the president and his family. I think that's that's totally fair. I would agree with that. I've always believed. This is a not just a legal, but a political threat to the president in the. Sense that if we ever get to the point of impeachment, and we'll know a lot more perhaps in the next few days when if Muller really does some it is report, and how far that's going to go, but any impeachment Bill of particulars will include almost certainly an article that says the president is in violation of the US constitutional prohibition on Amalia minutes, and that this will be part of the case against the president. Now, you pointed out something to me as actress before we came on which is that next week. We have Michael Cohen's testimonies. Finally will see it's been, you know, scheduled and put off three times before the house oversight committee. But in his memo about the scope of that testimony. He mentions Cummings does chairman of oversight the emoluments clause. Trump as one subject when they listed the scope of what they were going to talk about and several of the other items on their pertain to the president's business, but they specifically singled out the Trump hotel there they didn't single out more relied. They do that. We're going to find out. I'm really curious. I don't know of any direct connections that cone has other than having worked for the Trump organization. He's been there a few times, there's a great picture posted online. If I'm having cookies and coffee with diamond and silk who are also having a concert having bringing their chitchat tour to the Trump hotel also believe next week, and they're they're doing a tour. I think they're about fifteen or sixteen dates in four or five of them or at Trump properties. So we got the Kuwaitis diamond and silk. Stone was just there recently really tell us about is for Virginia women for Trump was having an event their campaign kickoff there their private LLC. They're not affiliated with the campaign indicted, Russia gate defendant, Roger stone. Yes, he dated just it was the day after he was up your first, Raymond I believe in it was two days after that. Which if you remember the judge said notebook door and she specifically used the phrase notebook tour, and he was at the Trump hotel signing books and hawking t-shirts for his legal defense. And wait, this is this is a point that I always have to stress. What are those t shirts say God if I can't Roger stone? Did nothing wrong, which is a pretty blatant allusion to a popular Neo Nazi Meam Hitler. Did nothing wrong. So this. This. Didn't know that one. I saw pictures of him signing books. She said no bookstores if you're talking to an audience and signing books, then we got a guy who's been indicted could potentially be hoping for a pardon from his former close associate the president. And he's handing money to the event. That's it sold out. They had about three hundred people there all I can say is what better place to celebrate your arraignment. National hotel. It seems like a magnet for indicted defendant. We've seen a lot of people celebrated their acting attorney general time Whitaker went there and his testimony.

"And I hadn't assignment for Conde nast traveler to go right about the hotel in the traditional Conde nast traveler, kind of stuff but also dig into the legal issues. The hotel was facing. This was right after Trump became president right after the hotel opened and so from the vantage point of my stay there. We kind of looked back at what lawsuits were. We're going through the courts, and what was happening that way in the saw the president there that was like the big takeaways that I saw the president. I talked to the president briefly because I was a customer at his tail was this while he was president. Yes. Yes. This was president. This was in April of two thousand seventeen is there he had a steak dinner. So what he told me? I didn't throw any hardball questions. I just wanted to see if I could talk to them and would you have for dinner, Mr President steak, right? So from that I started looking at social media seeing what was going on at the hotel. And it was amazing. What was happening there? And that it wasn't really being reported on. I really took a look into during the time that Scaramucci was communications director. And he was there every night, and it it just looked like a fun place to go. The he was there Kellyanne Conway Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and I started tweeting this stuff and it kinda took off. And I just stuck with it. Okay. But there are some really significant legal and political questions about what's going on at the hotel. So why don't you? Outline them sheriff's. Well, right now, we have three emoluments cases that are going through the courts at various stages. One by crews filed the first week day after Trump was inaugurated that gut that that was dismissed for lack of standing there appealing. We're waiting to hear on that. The biggest one we have going on right now is the DC and Maryland attorneys general they were granted standing only regarding the DC property though, none of Trump's other businesses. They had originally filed regarding New York and some other properties and that they were granted standing they started issuing some subpoenas. And that guy kicked up to the appellate court though and subpoenas are on hold. So or arguments on that wonder in March and just to be clear. The issue here is the plaintiffs in this case the D C in Maryland attorneys generals. And there's a third one by members of congress one hundred and that they also the president is violating the Molliems clause of the constitution by maintaining an interest in his business while he's president. And that business is collecting revenues and profits from foreign governments corporate lobbyists and others who are trying to influence his administration state governments as well. That's another big one there. We just found out that the state of Maine dropped twenty two thousand dollars of taxpayer money on forty nights at the Trump hotel. It's nice steak dinners as well. Right now. The the big one though that is happening next week is Kuwaiti national day celebration. They're back. They're back for the third time for the third time. The Kuwaitis are having their grand reception in Washington at the Trump hotel, and they made big headlines the first time, and that's part of what kept me wanting to stick with this is that I figured the headlines would start disappearing when these things kept going on and on it was just a matter of habit. But I felt like it's not the first time. But this happens that it's really is important as the second third and fourth. So the first time the Kuwaitis did this. They'd actually sent out save the dates. To have the event at the four seasons. And then Trump gets elected and they have a change of venue, and it becomes the Trump hotel. And that first one has been cited in those emoluments cases like it is mentioned there and they're going back for third year. If it's already in litigation why it's face. Yeah. I would agree. Yes.

"But the public testimony is clearly designed to to have Cullen talk about how he was abused in his false loyalty to Donald Trump. But that should be quite the show coincide testimony. You know as the president has. Tried to distance himself from Michael Cohen Africo ineffectively flipped to borrow the very appropriate and these game rat, right, right? Yeah. You know, since then the president has tried to distance himself from Michael Cohen. And I have I think on skulduggery and elsewhere just repeatedly tried to make the point that that doesn't hold up. I mean, Michael Cohen was as close as you can get to the president in twenty fifteen. There was a point when the Trump campaign was really like five people and two of them were Michael Cohen, Roger stone. Right. Cohen has this decade long relationship with the president and his business. He was apparently the fixer these really sensitive instances of alleged affairs, and he continued his relationship with Trump, although to a lesser extent after the president took office. So you know, he and his attorneys have claimed he's now finally telling the truth after covering for the president. And he's ready to do his patriotic duty, and you know, tell all. And given that expectation in given his close close ties to Trump. I think this could be if it actually happens one of the most interesting hearings and needless to say the Republicans will have plenty of ammunition to fire away at Cohen on. I mean, this is a guy who is an admitted liar. He's been convicted of lying to congress. He was raking it in shamelessly right after Trump's election collecting, big giant consulting contracts from covering business AT and T, and, you know, foreign interests as well all pretending that he would have inside access that could influence the administration. And I think you're you're also gonna see them get into his family ties and personal business. I mean, this is a guy who built his relationship with Donald Trump by having his family members, many of whom are from the Ukraine by with cash properties in Trump buildings. So that's actually how they got introduced. And it's funny you've seen the president make these allusions about Michael Cohen better watch out for his father in law, which is an implied almost legal threat. But there are a lot of questions surrounding Michael Cohen's vast personal fortune his own some very very valuable properties in his own, right. And also his family, which has extensive links to figures in the former Soviet Union has had tax problems of their own. So I'm sure a lot of that stuff..

"Argue this quote unquote, deep state conspiracy against Donald Trump is real. So it's really interesting to watch them sort of say, the book is true when it when it serves their narrative and also say McCabe is this liar in fabulous. Right. Right. And I gotta say I mean, having read the book I was surprised because it's well done, and there are some priceless anecdotes in their ones that haven't gotten big headlines, but among others, Robert Muller rep, here's in the book. I mean mccabe's the brief Muller, and he talks about what a ball BUSTER. He was to brief out intimidating was. And you know, where's that material? I asked you about the other day. Why don't you have the answers? Bubbler is like six foot seven. No. That was Komi was six foot seven molars big guy. But not quite that at six five, but, but, you know, marine Lieutenant in Vietnam all that here's one I didn't know Muller d- had gone to interview with Trump for the FBI job. After Komi was firing. We knew that we didn't know is while he's in the Oval Office being interviewed by the president. He left his cell phone behind in the White House. And then there's a call made to rod Rosenstein, he needs in cellphone back and rod has to go intercede to get the cell phone back. But my favorite is the moment. And I think this tells us much about the Trump White House as anything I've read it's February two thousand seventeen and the senior White House staff has learned at the FBI has this information about Michael Flynn. Now, he may have lied about his. Conversation. This must have been like a week after Trump took office. It's it's early February and McCabe get summoned to a meeting with Ryan spree bes- than the chief of staff and Don Mcgann, the White House counsel and previous is very quite upset. We need to see what you've got on Flynn. We need to see the evidence right now. And suddenly, there's a TV on in the room and starts airing a story about some event in the Trump White House, and they all turn around currently, it's an unflattering story. And they get into a big argument about who leaked the story, and there's pre-bus and Mcgann going at it, you know, poor McCabe is just sitting there patiently he's been summoned to the super sensitive national security briefing. And he's watching the White House. I'll just read you if you lines everyone turned toward the screen, and they all began to talk about the story, which they said had been leaked. I don't remember what the story was only how much upset them. They. They had a heated conversation. I waited for that to finish. You know, this is a White House that to me is Vakhidov of a Mel Brooks movie. I think I mean, the only thing I can compare it. There are so many ways that's the ultimate anecdote of Donald Trump's Washington. You have this highly sensitive and important meeting. Get completely disrupted by cable, news, and leaks. The meeting itself featured pretty much an entire cast of characters that's no longer there because of the turnover, and we're finding out about it in a tell all book written by a fire behind this. Not even the first time that's happened. And it is this really unique feature of Washington right now that these fired FBI guys are like the new selling Rockstars. It's amazing. I know now next week. We also have a guy who hasn't yet written a book, but Michael column is supposed to finally testify before congress in public. Nick before the house oversight committee. So they now the caveat here is this has been scheduled three times before and canceled three times before. So there is a wait and see aspect to the he's the runaway bride of congressional right? Okay. All right. So Colin goes before house oversight. Now, the scope of this hearing is not supposed to include Russia because the next day he'll be before Adam shifts intelligence committee behind closed doors testifying about Russia, why behind closed doors at this point is beyond me as we've discussed many times on this on this show..

"So will the report be even more detailed or have the indictments been his primary communication vehicle. The other question, obviously, this is going to superiors at the Justice department. What will get from them to congress, and then what will ultimately be made public. So we know that we're headed towards some type of conclusion, but I think we don't know whether whether we're gonna see that much from right? Look all the rags require is that Muller submit a confidential report to the AG William bar. And then it is really at bars discretion about what gets publicly set now in his confirmation hearings. He made clear that he believes as much as possible should be publicly shared is that just the conclusions. When you get into the details of the report, and then you're dealing with grand jury material with classified information, you know, with comments and testimony about third parties, private individuals who are not criminally charged by Muller. How much latitude is bargain have to make that public clearly congress. The Democrats are gonna wanna see everything will see how much gets publicly disclosed. But I think the pressure is going to be enormous on bar to release, you know, something very soon, and I would think it could come within days, but we will find out spa. Speaking of tell all books, though, I mean, we had this week the extraordinary media tour of Andrew McCabe, the acting FBI director who was fired by then attorney general sessions, the guy who launched the counter intelligence investigation of the president to determine if he was a Russian asset after the firing of Jim Komi and the president has been tweeting way about McCabe hasn't. He what I find really interesting is their reports. And we're seeing the tweets come out Trump and his allies are both speaking out against aspects of the McKay book that put him in unflattering light. But also trying to take some elements of the McCabe book where you know, he talks about efforts underway inside the government to either investigate the president or even consider removing him from office, and they're using those pieces of the book..

"This is the most coveted piece of real estate in Washington DC, the best location that was then presidential candidate Donald Trump in the closing days of the two thousand sixteen campaign taking time off to announce the opening of the Trump International hotel in Washington event. Didn't get all that much notice at the time given everything else that was going on. But now that he's living in the White House. Trump's hotel just a few blocks away has become a legal albatross for the president as evidence mounts that foreign governments corporate lobbyists and lots of others are spending big bucks. They're in an apparent effort to curry favor with his administration and next week. The Kuwaiti government will throw its Grand National day celebration there. The third time. It is. Done. So once again in rich ING, the president's personal coffers as Washington awaits, the completion of Robert Muller's Russia report and picks over the new book by acting FBI director, Andrew McCabe will dig into what's going on at the Trump hotel, and why it represents one of the biggest legal and political threats of all Trump's presidency. And we'll talk with Virginia congressman who is demanding answers on why Jared Kushner still has a security clearance. All that and more on this episode of skulduggery. Because people have got to know whether or not their president's. I'm not a crook. I told the American people I did not create on's hostile my heart. And my best intentions still tell me that's true.

Look this is shaping up as a momentous time for the Trump presidency. Multiple reports now that Muller's report could becoming any day at least submitted to the attorney general I imagine they're quite a few people at sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue who are on pins and needles at the moment. Well, you know, this is a White House that has just been repeatedly rocked by tell all books, and this is going to be the ultimate tell all I guess folks are going to be doing that old DC read where they look through the Muller index and see where their name is. But I think there's a lot of questions about what this document will be and what we will get to see molar has been filing these what they call the legal community.

They were never suited for sometime seemingly we ought so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia. That is pretty stunning. Okay.

And I don't think that Jared ever forgot that so Jared at every turn we're try and undermine and poison anything the president wanted to do for Christie, but some interesting insight at his first meeting with Trump in two thousand and two at a dinner in the Trump International hotel and tower in New York, Trump ordered food for him. It's like you with a child he ordered for him. He chose scallops to which Christie is allergic. And lamb, which he is always detested. That's hilarious. He orders a food for you that you need an epi pen for dessert Christner calls wondering what the Trump took him to one of his chicks at another night took him to be one of his tricks.

And maybe it doesn't the inspector general of the General Services Administration has issued a report finding that that agency the essay ignored guidelines detailed in the. In the constitution. Wow. Yes. The constitution has an emoluments clause which prohibits federal officials from receiving. Item's value from foreign governments and that the say ignore those guidelines when it allowed. Donald Trump to retain the lease of historic government building in Washington, which has become now, the Trump International hotel. After he became president. It was the old post office government watchdog found fault with the agency review of its lease of the old post office landmark building located blocks away from the White House. It was leased by the Trump organization in two thousand thirteen for sixty years in two thousand sixteen seventeen the agency allowed the Trump organization to maintain its government issued lease even the concerns about potential conflicts of interest. And the emoluments clause were raised said the IT's report GSA's decision making process related attendant tenant that is the Trump organization. It's possible breach of lease included serious.

Stating the an elected federal official could not participate in the lease or in any benefit that might arise from it. After the election. The GSA issued a one hundred sixty six page decision concluding that his company was in quote full complaints unquote with the lease based on its review of the lace as well as discussions with Trump hotel representatives and documents submitted by Trump hotel reps, the session also found the company met the terms of least because the president resigned from former position in the Trump organization, so he wouldn't receive direct cash from the hotel while in office. But according to the most recent inspector general report, the GSA ignored issues under the emoluments clause that might cause a breach of the lease since taking office. President has maintained his interest in the Trump organization against the advice of government ethics experts. He put his interest in a trust company is you know, being managed by two. I'm gonna use a term of art here. Adult sons Donald junior, and Eric that hotel has been particular source of controversy. It's become a magnet for lobbyists, foreign governments and organizations friendly of the president's agenda who have given the appearance of gathering at the establishment in an attempt to gain favor with the White House.

"Wichitas number one eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one Joe media, very very excited lady in general because a federal judge. Peter mess. US district judge of which there almost a thousand of them. You see? So you bring enough lawsuits you bring enough cases, and you're bound to find one leftist in their federal judge allows discovery to move forward in the Trump emoluments case here this. A federal judge today denied President Trump's appeal to pause discovery in a lawsuit that alleges he violated, a constitutional clause banning gifts and advantages from foreign and domestic government raising the possibility that transactions between the Trump International hotel, and foreign dignitaries might be made public. So as, you know, President Trump is a longtime developer, he's a very wealthy, man. His children are involved in the business. He's built hotels and resorts and so forth. So there's this hotel in Washington absolutely magnificent hotel, the Trump International hotel. And dignitary stay there. That is representatives of foreign governments. And so what they're arguing is these these states in these left-wing groups is that the president still has an ownership interest and Trump International hotel, therefore he's receiving benefits. Permanently some foreign and state governments as well. As from the federal government. Quote, according accordingly. The president's ownership interests in the Trump International hotel, and is apparent receipt of benefits from at least some foreign and state governments as well. As from the federal government itself suggest he has received a monuments in violation of the constitution giving rise to plausible causes of action against him. Brought by parties withstanding that's the judge. That's not what the emoluments clause was meant to say or be. In other words, what it was saying was he's public officials cannot be on the payroll of a federal government. They cannot be behold, excuse me, foreign government. They cannot be beholden to a foreign government. Because obviously that could influence their decision making. There's nothing to do with investments. What if the president own an apartment building, and some foreign dignitaries were staying there. What if the president owns a bunch of restaurants, and a lot of foreign dignitaries and federal employees eat there. What if the president the United States own say, the biggest Washington DC Chevy Ford dealership, and foreigners and foreign dignitaries? And and federal employees purchase cars from there. I I assume that in every case a president would be in violation of the monuments close. That's not what's meant by that. And of course, it's brought by the Maryland attorney general Brian frosh nitwit, the DC attorney general Carl Racine. Another nitwit. Now, what's interesting, Mr. producer? Will you find out who appointed this judge? It's spelled M E S S ITT. Would you Google that please? Whenever there's a a decision. And it involves a Republican appointed judge. You always know it's a Republican opponent judge this guy may well be because the dirty little secret is the district court judges. They're not treated like circuit judges when they're nominated. What happens and what has happened now? For decades, under many, many presidents is that in order to get two or three district court judges through the Senate, you typically have to give the Democrats want it works like this. Let's say there's a couple of vacancies on a federal trial or federal district court in New York. And you have obviously to left wing coop senators in New York, and they put a hold on all of them. So typically, what have says look we're going to take these three. We'll give you one which one do you want? Now, this goes on all the time. It does not go on on the appellate courts or the supreme court. But I'm just curious because they didn't identify who appointed Peter mess mess. I do we know yet, Mr. producer. William Jefferson Clinton, he's a Clinton appointee. Now, I assumed it was a democrat who appointed him because it's not in the article, it's not in the CNN news wire. So you have a Clinton appointee who's a hack. Who knows that the constitution doesn't compel this? But he wants to help you see the attorney general of Maryland. And the attorney general of the district of Columbia to conduct their political lawsuit to get access to the potentially the president's tax returns. This is never ending. It'll only get worse if they take the house. And certainly the Senate. But this is what happens when the rule of law goes out the window. This is what happens with the bastardisation of the constitution says nothing to do with the monument clause nothing. You own property. Say you build a building that has a bunch of condominiums you're selling the apartments off. And the government comes in for some some foreign governments says, you know, we're going to buy five of those because it's just easier to do we want to put our people that would be a violation as I said a restaurant that would be a violation. Apparently. And that's not what's intended you see people like William Jefferson Clinton, aka BJ, BJ Clinton. Al Gore bloviating. Barack Mel house Benito. Obama and MRs Barack Mel house Benita Obama most of them make tens of millions of dollars after they're out of office. Parlaying their their positions as former presidents or former first ladies with publishers with with the entertainment companies, getting speech money from the Russians or whatever the hell, it is Al Gore's worth one hundred and fifty million dollars. Now, this guy has dumb as a doorknob. They Clintons since they've been out of office. Have grossed a quarter of a billion dollars money is flying at the Obamas. Like, you can't believe it. Flying at the Obamas. Mr. and MRs class warfare. Like, you can't believe it. Make any money before they became president. Or first lady Donald Trump is a self made multi-billionaire even though the New York Times tried to try to smear him. He's a self made multibillionaire. He's changed the the skyline in New York City. He's hired. Not just tens of thousands over the decades, maybe a hundred thousand people good paying jobs. The clintons. The obamas. Gore. They never created good paying jobs. They just take money from people. So now, the emoluments clause is going to be used against any wealthy person. Who runs for president of the United States? This is just diabolical by this Clinton judge apple and he's already given his answer. The case is over even before it begins. This is nothing more than a left wing tactic. That's all it is. But I'm bringing it up to you because it just happened. And this is what's going to continue to happen. So what are you going to do this weekend? You're gonna try and fight these forces.

I'm sorry. I had people when I was working that would say it's going to be wonderful. He's our first black president. I'm not racist. My father was Dhaka's, Mr Obama. But I said you don't catch people on color. You don't raise them up the ladder. And you don't take anything from them. While let me ask you this in a different direction. Obama is campaigning all over the country to help Democrats isn't that a good thing. Because the last time he did that they got wiped out. I know, but he's a fraud. And they all I know is, but but but I'm saying that I don't fear him campaigning. At all. I think it's a great thing. I think like I say it's so many people who buy into the race thing is because he's not the only one he's he's he's really not the only one this is now a theme, but the democrat party, it's a theme in the media.

He was African American. He'd worked on the assembly line building ball bearing somewhere outside of Chicago over the years. He retired after thirty some years, and we got into a great conversation. He had no idea who I wasn't. That was good. Because then I have a great conversation. And I asked him what he did. I said, well, you're retired. You have a pension. Why? Why are you an Uber driver? He said, honestly, I don't need the money have been doing this for two years. I just love people. I said you love people. He said, yes. He said, I love all kinds of people. We have great discussions. I learned so much where else can I do it. But in this car. And I said to him. Well, what do you think of these politicians who keep trying to divide us based on race? He said, let me tell you something. The American people do not think like these politicians it is in their benefit these politicians to have us at each other's throats. And he wasn't talking about any party any particular person. He just said as a rule, it's it's their benefit to have us at each other's throats. He said, but I get all kinds of people in here. And they're all friendly. Very friendly. We have wonderful chats I learned about their family. They learn about my family said like you. You asked me what I did. I tell you what I did. Then he shows me a picture of his grandson shows me how he's teaching his grandson to read. You so say they'll look at this. My grandsons five years old. He can read I said that's unbeliev said I taught him how to read. Very proud grandfather the patriarch of his family. Just a regular guy a regular. He's not sitting there looking at race. He's not sitting there race baiting. He's not sitting there as a victim. We get along. Great.

So this would obviously hurt if they took away their liquor, liquor license, they're trying to. That's all felt like they're basing this any kind of no real stance. They just want to hurt the man because they hate him. Do you wanna bet though? What do you wanna bet that might? I mean, I could see that going somewhere. Oh, yeah, D.C. So flaming liberal, I, I could see this turning into that, but. But. We have that story today of the guy was that in was that in he's news where the guy was such a Trump fanatic. He hated him so much that he shot himself as statement against Trump and that'll teach Donald Trump that'll teach him. So now you know that he's learned his lesson. Now, what can I do. Better said, what can I do to make you hate me more. So stupid. People set themselves on fire always here. That's like a really noble thing that hurts. Sure. That hurts great protests. He made such a not a good idea. That's dumb. You're no, sorry, you know what? And then you haven't hurt the person you're protesting against. I don't know if you're wear that. Yep. I mean, while they might be a little bit sad if they hear about your death got not gonna change your ways because of all of that person's set themselves on fire because of my policies. Oh, I'm going to change them all in that much change. Every one of my policies is different than before my time. Doesn't change anything right? It might make other people mad, but you're dead or horribly, disfigured, you lose either way. You're not here to see what happened because of your protests or you can't see it through a lot of gauze. I guess. I don't know. Wait a minute that hippie. Doused himself in leading fluid and then struck a match and burst into flames and burned himself to death because he doesn't. He didn't like what I say on TV. Okay. I guess I'll change everything I've ever stood for now. Do they think that's what happens? No, they go on, dang it. That's. That's too bad and they move on and they do the same thing that we're going to do anyway. What wasn't even Trump secretary in that phone call with the with the Woodward was a Madeleine good. That's what I was trying to figure that out. Okay. So somebody comes in Mr President, this man shot himself because he hates you so much, and it's a demonstration of hatred toward you. Did it call Madeline, Madeline, I should've just called Madeline talked about you win. I was going to be like more like really Madeline. What's next day schedule. It probably be more like that. Does nothing. Nothing. Seriously find a creative way to protest. Yes, so swear you don't hurt yourself. That's dumb. Yeah, this is kind of interesting..
