"Reporting comes one day after a former Trump White House lawyer disputed Hutchinson's testimony about a handwritten statement she allegedly wrote on January 6th. Hutchinson testified that she wrote a statement for Trump to release during the capitol riot, however, former White House lawyer Eric hirschman insisted that he wrote the handwritten note present it to the committee during Hutchinson's testimony. The handwritten note of and I'm quoting note that Cassidy Hutchinson testified was written by her was in fact written by Eric hirschman on January 6th, 2021, this according to hirsch's hirschman spokeperson, part of hirsch Hutchinson's testimony are also at odds with members of the U.S. Secret Service, the most sensationalized aspect of hertz testimony was that Trump allegedly tried to take control of the presidential SUV's steering wheel and shouted expletives as Secret Service agents when they prevented him from doing so. However, shortly after Hutchinson's testimony, two Secret Service agents and the SUV, that day reportedly confirmed their intent to make statements under oath that would contradict Hutchinson's story. This is a sham guys. And while we're sitting here, you guys are struggling here. We just talked about how prices are going up for Independence

"I am pleased to be joined by our friend Steve Moore. He is a freedom works economic official. He is a former Trump White House economics official. I lean on him in Philadelphia every single week as our own economic official. Steve-O, I wish every time we talk, it seems to be degrees worse. I would love to have better news for folks today. The Dow closes 8 75 down. I've got this story. I don't even know what it means. You're smarter than me, a U.S. two year treasury yields rose above ten year borrowing costs. The so called curve inversion that Harold's economic recession, I'm hearing a lot about the R word now, Steve-O. What do you say about it? Well, I mean, unfortunately, I think we're really headed that way. And I wish I had good news for you, Chris. But I really, I really don't. I mean, you know, you've seen a 900 point reduction in the Dow Jones today. We're now at about 11 trillion 11 $1 trillion of wealth losses over the last three months under Biden. It's all a result of his war on American energy, his massive government spending plans in his war on American business, frankly. It's a progressive socialist agenda that is killing our economy. If anything good has come out of this and it's hard to see anything good come out of this. It's hopefully Americans are awakened. I won't use the word woke or awakened to the negative effects of when you let the government and the politicians make the decisions for the economy.

Well, I think the mcgurk case is not only the most important issue facing Oklahoma on day to today level. It's the most important issue. I think in determining the type of senator that oklahomans are going to have. And I say that because it's one of those issues where a lot of special interests who have been pushing candidates in the direction of the status quo. And right now the status quo is devastating for Oklahoma. You've got 18,000 cases. Criminal cases that have been pushed from state to federal court. And that means that the federal system is totally overwhelmed and they're unable to prosecute a huge number of cases in practicality that means that rapists and murderers are actually going unpunished and

Will the Never-Trump Movement Be a Force in the Next Election?

"Julie, when we started, I mentioned your first book. So everybody has to read January 6th, but your first book was disloyal opposition. We are in the throes of a midterm election year, the never Trump movement was crucial to the Russia collusion hoax, to the politicization of U.S. government, holdovers, I saw them myself in the Trump White House. Let me ask you now, the subject of that book was the never Trump movement. Will they have an effect that The Lincoln Project that likes to protect pedophiles will they be a force in this election and in 2024 when president Trump runs again or have we put a stake through the heart of that vampire? I think there has been a stake put through the dark heart of the never Trump movement. Because now, as you know, Seth, they've moved on from just going against Trump as I wrote about in that book. Then pivoted to Republican lawmakers who supported Trump. But now they've revealed themselves just full out progressive leftists, radical leftists. I mean, you see them going after Ron DeSantis or what he's trying to do when Florida. So anyone, they're going after anyone on the right who wants to protect our values, our freedom, stand up to the teachers union, stand up to corporate America, corporate America, like Disney. And so now there's nothing conservative about them anymore. And this has nothing to do with Trump. It's completely transcended Trump.

Kash Patel on Cleaning the Swamp for National Security's Sake

"Big last question, we could discuss this for hours cash. You said in the midterms, God willing if the American people wake up at the state of the economy because people vote their pocketbooks means a trouncing of the Democrats and then the gavels are handed over to people like Jim Jordan and others that we have to get serious because for me, there is really nominal oversight. The idea that a socialist is lecturing this week at national defense university on our dime on how America should be a socialist country means that there's no oversight of anything happening of any worth. If that happens, if we get serious oversight of the America first team, the freedom caucus gets power. What else has to be done as somebody who's been inside the belly of the beast institutionally. If you look at the organogram of the swamp, I don't think the DNI thing worked out. I think Brennan has done some massive internal damage to the CIA with the restructuring and making Intel analysts almost as senior as actual operators. What would a cleaning of the swamp mean if we were serious about doing national security without politics? Yeah, this is a great question. I mean, we could talk about this one for days, but we'd have to shrink the government agencies and remind them what they're lanes are. The CIA is an intelligence collection agency. The Department of Defense is a war fighting machine. The Food and Drug Administration responsible for food and drugs. And people have to stay in their lanes and not collaborate with each other and expand their own footprint so they can get a bigger budget from Congress. The other thing, I think Congress needs to do. And this can happen from just us winning the gavels is, as I learned from the Russia game investigation, finding out the truth is hard enough. You know what's harder said with the media that we have, you know this? Getting it out to the American public. And our Congress when we have the gavels has to go in there and make it easier to declassify information, make it easier to get that information to the American public and into the media. Because that is what constitutional oversight is supposed to be from the members of Congress that they should make it easier for everyday Americans to read it. It should not take two years for us to classify 66 interrogations that I took at house Intel. That should be done overnight. That's just one example. But we can do that in Congress.

How They Spied on the Trump White House With Kash Patel

"Have my TS clearance. I'm sure you do. So there are certain limitations on what we can see in public. But two things you discussed in others have talked about the CIA's targeting Dan discussed yesterday the CIA targeting of president Trump and his colleagues, which would be illegal. It's a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil. I was told when I was in The White House by a former CIA station chief that there was a group of four contractors civilian contractors to the NSA who were targeted who had told to target me, Steve Bannon and others. Are either of those things on the right track? What have you heard? What can you talk about? I haven't heard about that specifically, but Seth, you know, we do still have our clearances, but the one advantage of now being out of government and not having access to the intelligence that John Durham is talking about is we can say based on experience what we think happened as you and I know that probably means that's what happened. The fact that they obtained an operation to get a contract with the intelligence community is one also unheard of to gain access to a White House. And you know why they did it to them. They could have tried to go in and hack it like they did with the other operations they were running. But they knew that someday they might get caught. So what they wanted to be able to do was come out and say, oh, it's above board. We got a government contract from the intelligence community to allow us to spy on president Trump. So that's okay. So now we're good. And that's exactly what Don Durham is calling them out for. Right.

"The debts are like ninety nine percent of the cova death last month where among people who are unvaccinated. But here's the other concern world. So you covered disinformation earlier. Were also facing an increasing other pandemic. Which is disinformation pandemic and the misinformation were fifty percent. Fifty four percent of americans either believe in a commonly shared kobe Or don't know if it's true or wrong and because of that you know those are the most likely to not get vaccinated and and so does battle is. It's going to be upheld until we can get more people vaccinated and protected and bring those cases now all right. Well then. Let's talk about motivators that would get people to want to be vaccinated. France announced that anyone who wants to visit cafes bars or shopping centres lush show a health pass to prove they've been vaccinated or recently tested negative for the virus. When we were reopening here in the us we heard about that all sorts of businesses. Said you do not have to wear a mask if you're fully vaccinated. What happened to that. That was supposed to be the carrot to get a lot of people especially young people motivated. Hey you wanna go to a bar. A restaurant a ballgame. You're going to have to get vaccinated. I've seen basically none of that happening with the exception of a concert. Here maybe flight. When was the last time you walked into a store. And they asked her vaccination status instead they business been hard in the us in adult mandating adult. Vaccinations has has. We've never been successful We've done it in healthcare setting in whether it's flu vaccines or or the usual. Measles mumps their seller all the other vaccines easier to do it in those settings in universities in schools adult. Vaccinations we've had an issue at and what you're seeing is unfortunate confluence you have those rising wave of anti evac sentiment that was increasing even before the pandemic now is converging somehow with his hyperthyroidism. Listen the pipe. The bipartisan you. Know lewis of the vaccination than so. My concern is as we move out of this one of the big things and stood work to de politicize. The vaccinations that yes. There are places that we could potentially mandate but one of the ways that we get people to do it as today. If you're legislator and if you are not out there promoting vaccinations you are not out there. Trying to make it easier for people to get vaccinated. You're hurting your own constituents. You're you're keeping your communities from recovering. And so we need to sort of dial back. The rhetoric. And i think that might help increase that but to your point about the the young service still show that you know the among the young at least if vaccinations are required travel or gatherings you're more likely to see vaccination vaccination rates go up but exactly why isn't politicized. That's what i don't understand. It was former president. Trump's administration that led operation warp speed operation. Warp speed is how we ended up with the vaccine. Truly extraordinary trump can take credit for that trump was vaccinated. His entire family was vaccinated. So how exactly did this become politicized to those hardcore trump supporters. Not realize he got the vaccine. He helped develop it. I'd agree and i. I want to stress that. What if beat of science. That was to be able to look at where we would have been today. You know we were talking about these surges in many of our states. Look at where we would have been if if majority of had not been vaccinated. You only have to look across to what's happening in in the continent of africa. Where were you seeing over. A million new cases in in the last month. And you're seeing it will. Five countries report issued shortages end. The vaccine remain out of reach for most people and masks. That's the situation we would have been in today. We have the luxury we have vaccines that are say we have vaccines that reduce to other people. Have vaccines the cheap you out of the hospital. They keep you from getting hospitalized or dying from this. This is a vaccine preventable disease. And all i can say is one way as you gino. Today surgeon general talked about misinformation and disinformation. One way. you as an individual can help in. because we're all trying to do our best in our healthcare spaces in our public health faces. Is that if you got the vaccine. Find someone who you trust. Who hasn't and explain why you got it in explain. You know that you have an ad reactions and that might help dispel some of that misinformation putting a face to to the vaccination listened to the misinformation risk. Getting really sick doctor.

They know this is not a sure thing that and we also heard from the press secretary sake today saying that will be president biden perhaps acting as closure and willing to negotiate willing to give up some stuff in order to get these things both and while we wait. Bridges continue to crumble before we go. I want to ask you quickly a different subject but something that caught our eye today. We noticed this tweet from political reporter. Josh gerstein where he wrote new york times files of foia suit for copy of material. Lawler deputy andrew weissmann maintained sometimes referred to as an alternative lulla report andrew weissmann contributor here at msnbc. What could the new york times be looking for alternative lulla report. So what was says in. His book is that they prepare a separate report with some key. Facts that mother was now willing to reveal to the public's result of his investigations that no charges would be brought against trump. So we have no idea. What's end this alternative report. It's hugely significant for two reasons. The first is there could be real evidence evolving ogle -bility with regard to lucien and obstruction. Which of course among the report found significant evidence of the other concerns though stephanie. Is that the justice department has been defended by the garland justice department. Brolin is institutional is ideas. He's defending the argument. Not bar or sessions of the fact is that because of our because of garland institutional lysm east shielding people from accountability.

"trump white house" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams

"You don't couldn't gutsy prosecutor. Ringa case of sedition against former president Possibly but the person who would bring the prosecution would be the attorney general he would have to authorize it and so far gardeners shown that kind of guts so i think our nation house attorneys lonely is to other investigations for some kind of accountability for trump. I think these revelations certainly enhanced the case in georgia where the atlanta district attorney is investigating election. Fraud by trump giuliani and others. And certainly we for evidence of trump's from intense fear is recklessness evocative according to these reports three times on january six to get him to haul off his troops and the president refuse until was to way. This investigation has nothing to do with the manhattan district attorney investigation of the trump organization. But stephanie. i do think it provides more incentive for those accusers. also. Try to bring down mr trump himself member famously Own was brought down by tax evasion. That was far from the worst crime that he ever committed. But it was something that prosecutors could prove. Until i think the manhattan district attorney will be looking at that as well on sunday. President trump said that after the impeachment after both impeachments i got worse after prosecutors. Were fear that when people are allowed to act as if they're above the law to escape accountability they get worse and trump comes of admitted there. Another with vodka trump leaking that behind the scenes. She was really trying to do the right thing will. She is always welcome to join us here on. Msnbc and tell us publicly what she was doing in the administration clinton. Let's turn to the white house and vaccines. They're really trying to fight. Vaccine disinformation i want to share with jen. Psaki said today watch this. There's about twelve people who are producing sixty five percent of anti vaccine misinformation on social media platforms. All of them remain active facebook despite some even being banned on other platforms including facebook ones that facebook owns facebook. Needs to move more quickly to remove harmful Violative posts. They need to remove it or what facebook is saying clinton were moving misinformation. But that's after it's posted unless the government is rules and regulations. Do they have any way to force facebook to do anything. Facebook answers to shareholders and to their customers both who are very very happy with them and currently they haven't broken any laws district steadily. I mean to facebook's credit if you look all the way back to election twenty sixteen we've been talking about this for basically five years now. Congress really has never said what they want lease so facebook and all social media companies go out policing content based on kind of the lens of in the current. See in the united states at the moment. And that's just not the best way to go. The other part is if you're always policing content you're always losing to the worst offenders and that's what the the press secretary there. She was exactly right about one percent of the manipulators. Ninety percent of misinformation and disinformation. That's out there so if you're fighting content you're always going lose your react in stand you really gonna focus on the individuals. Those that are prolific focus on the most prolific equal. You'll make sizeable dent in the amount of malign information that is causing this from where people don't trust the vaccines or can't get out to the back scenes because they're hearing are more fear than they are in terms of called their fear hearing far more falsehoods than they are. In terms of truth now will always get them quicker than the best. We're going to get out of facebook is that they're gonna try real hard as long as it doesn't hurt their bottom line very much. Don't we have to turn our attention to government if we want something done about misinformation in terms of changing regulations. Stephanie i i absolutely agree. But having testified to the senate I think four or five times now lost track about this exact issue. There's not been one single regulation or law. That's come out after all of those hearings going all the way back to twenty seventeen they will call a lot of the heads of the social media. Companies gap will. They will yell at them but they will never really issue any guidelines an from the perspective of capitol hill right now. It's a debate about section. Two thirty am free speech. If you're looking at the republican side of the aisle versus the political left side of the aisle which is focused on things like misinformation and election misinformation. So i i think until capitol hill can really decide what they want lease inside america. What you'll see is all of the social media. Companies facebook being the biggest lint will lean in whatever direction is in the majority. I think that's just not a good situation. For things like securing elections making sure people get vaccinated and then we have trust in our elected officials institutions. So the ceo's assault to testify embarrassed for a day and then they hop back on their planes head home and nothing changes jonathon. Let's talk infrastructure and this expanded child tax credit. If the bipartisan deal goes through next week and they ended up scrapping the entire democratic going alone three and a half trillion dollar deal but they find a way to make that child tax credit permanent hugely popular. We started seeing payments. Go out today without the giant win for this white house. Will there remains to be seen and certainly those tax credits did come out today. American saw them in their bank accounts if they were getting direct deposit and been find their taxes last couple of years. And if you've got it in the mail you got a letter that accompanied it with a signature by the president and saying that they would do this from the really fill The still is trying to do this on two tracks. More or less simultaneously is infrastructure There were intense three hour plus meetings on capitol hill. Today for the bipartisan. Deal fact the trio of top white house negotiators were there meeting with republicans and there are still issues to be worn out to be worked out. I would not say that. It is a guarantee the bipartisan piece of this. That hard infrastructure bridges highways roads broadband is a guarantee to get done because there are real concerns about the pay fors and in particular whether the enforced irs payments would be enough to cover it We saw just earlier this week. The three point five trillion dollar budget reconciliation bill democrats alone also get done that also not quite sure thing though the progressives bernie sanders lou worn and others have signaled their support. They're still concerned about moderates like centers mansion cinema. Whether they will go that high so right now. The white house feeling optimistic. They feel like they're on the right track on both these bills but they also recognize. They're not there yet. I won't do a football analogy. We always do football analogies saying what yard. Line these bills ron. But i'll say they're not quite there entering the homestretch but they're not the finish line and these next couple of weeks particularly next week when these votes declutter votes start coming up or crucial as to whether they'll have it or not. Jonathan on the bipartisan deal. Will republicans stick with this deal. The eleven republicans. Who said yes. They're gonna go for it if they think this three and a half trillion dollar going alone. Reconciliation is going to happen at the same time or even after. Why on earth would they do that. That would give president biden. The biggest win ever. Won't they walk away. That's a good point. And i and that's well. Some republicans are considering it. We've heard from others who say look. This is my word. I said i'd go with this agreement. I'll stick with it. Senator romney is one who said that. Hey i'm not gonna commit one way or the other until i actually see the bill written. He in fact objected. The idea that majority leader schumer would bring it to a vote. Cloture vote next week without it being drafted and i think that's where some frankly some democrats are also concerned mansion in particular has said. Hey i want to see what's in there. I'm not going to rule out yet. A bill that size. But i wanna know how. It's going to be paid for democrats to this point of say. Look this we'll all get done for the particulars are still being stressed out..

"It was the prayers of so many christians that i could feel. And you're exactly right about the spiritual battle playing out. I saw each and every day like when when the president got covid. Nineteen you'll remember. They dubbed the emmy conybeare at nomination superspreader event. Some people have a piece together is franklin graham. Was there that day they were doing. The big prayer marched through washington and franklin graham and some of the greatest pastors of our time. We're in the white house meeting with the president. So you have covid. Nineteen the invisible enemy lurking in this superspreader event. While you have these pastors who represent all things good and christians praying through dc and it was just such a clear juxtaposition of being there but evil lurking in our midst and the good news is christ can overcome all and into that chapter by chapter. It's amazing i wanted. Just reemphasize this so you have a press briefing. This is not not like a a regular speech. I just want to have people understand. So you have this. You're literally sitting on top of each other because of the way the white house configurations and there's like the sliding door you walk out and you have probably thirty or forty rather high q. Hyper aggressive wannabe celebrities with masks on all. Uc's there is and you walk up to this podium and you're looking down there staring at everything you do. And then you have probably fifteen or twenty cameras and you know that there is thirty or forty million people. That will watch this. And then you have precisely what you have to say. And then you have to defend things that you didn't say on behalf of bureaucrat. Or mvm appoint pointy and if you say one word wrong it could derail the entire mission of the federal government in the midst of a pandemic. but they don't care because that's success for them it is and then you have to be precise throughout the entire thing. You have to be interesting and then you also have to be able to answer the questions from the opposition and then you have to be able to know your stuff because if you quote one thing wrong it becomes that becomes the story not all the benefits from all that yes in even if you do everything right they will still take you out of college. I remember i literally gave an answer. I believe this was to you me. I forget exactly who. But i talked about the science. Being on the side of reopening schools. I went through data. I said the. Cdc director said kids are minimal spreaders That they're not at risk from cova the same way adults are and i read. Statistics and facts in science. And i said with the science should not stand in the way of opening schools because the science on our side did everything right. Jim acosta takes. The science should not stand in the way tweets it out as if to suggest i just said science doesn't matter when in fact i had footnoted my answer with all of the science and even jake tapper had the audacity or i guess the courage to call him out not particularly a fan of jake tapper. But even jake tapper said guys. We're taking her out of context here which was a kind thing for him to do. But even when you do everything why they will take a snippet they will twist it for their own purposes and design is the highest stakes imaginable. And it's it's it's rather remarkable and it just in the way that there's there's no comparison what's happening right now. This is not even is not a press briefing. This is a lunch with friends which was happening john celery. That's not a press. The this is like an interrogation coupled with kind of like a war briefing. It's it's this really weird th. It's really bizarre in the sense that it really doesn't exist anywhere else in the country and you kind of just look at it like oh. She's kind of giving a speech. No you have to understand it from her actual visual optical perspective every time you look up from that podium you thirty really like treacherous people that are staring at you waiting for one thing and and you know that it's not just them but they represent outlets that day could push a button and every single apple device in the country and apple news notification kayleigh mcenany says this this and this and then you kind of get off the podium. You got up the podium that slide into your clothes and you ask your team. So how'd i do. Everything was great. It was awesome in the new. Look like that's not what i said. Exactly yes there. Were many moments like that when i go back to my office and i'd say that is not what happened but people can see it especially people who watch the briefings in their entirety. But that's why it's so important to anticipate the questions in anticipate. Counterarguments should be prepared. How can i take this. Go on offense and it was interesting. We would plan questions going from sunday's seven. Am all the way to the briefing and we would often identify a much harder question than any of even asked him. Where like how did they not think to ask a question. This is the toughest one of it. Sometimes they never quite got there but all of us to say the purpose of the press briefing is to bring news to the american people and what was so sad to me during my time there were children dying in the streets like sequoia turner and legend taliaferro. And we end the government. Were doing things to fight crime in the streets. You might tried to bring that message. They didn't care. And when i talked about the police officers who perished in amid the riots. David dorn they didn't care. And i'm not i'm not saying they didn't care like they're not compassionate people but they didn't care enough to write a story about it to ask a question about it in there and is the problem with the press if your narrative a child dying of crime in the streets doesn't fit the left's narrative it is just entirely ignored outside of local news to me. That is the real tragedy at the end of the day. It's those families. Those victims that ended up losing. There's never light brought to their stories..

"So the way a lot of view the media right now our listeners. Obviously they totally think it's a broken and corrupt institution and. I'm not really sure the right way to fix it to be honest on and just because they seem that they have all this power and they wanna use the power to keep themselves in charge which is really dark and awful and there's so many stories they could actually win awards if they actually went and invested right now but they decide. They don't wanna do that instead. I think there was a massive story. Recently on whether donald trump had his pants on backwards or forwards. Or the cicadas. That fell on joe. Biden's neck these were the major stories. We ask couple of less couple days. It's crazy and i mean we've got to a point where seventy nine percent of independence this was midway through. Trump's presidency of independence these are not republicans said that they believe that the press intentionally makes up fake stories and intentionally reports them so the good news is people recognize it at omen trust. Barometer trust different gauges the trust of different institutions. They found the media's at their lowest point of trust so the american people are wise to this they do see the headlines they are smart But when we get to a point where big media colludes with big tech. That's where it becomes highly problematic There is a pull out recently that it was one. In six biden voters would have changed their vote had heard about the hunter biden story. They talk about influencing election there simply no doubt that twitter in big media and big tech altogether influenced alexa and it was the most interfered with election in american history. And i mean the fact you could could suppress the new york post story. Because we don't like what they have to say even though ended up being totally true. And then oh that was another lie that this was somehow russian intelligence remember and by this not only that last year we went through to impeachments. Right we went through one in ukraine and the other one was ridiculous and we had to go the whole phone. Call thing that a couple months later we had to deal with the whole virus and the lab week and this if the democrats actually wanted to permanently sever the country. They've they're doing a great job. Yes they are and the but the point. Two russian disinformation. This is where it becomes so laughable that anyone with a brain cell can see through the antics of the press you know politico. I believe it was published fifty intelligence officials who said that the hunter biden laptops where he was russia disinflation. Well the average american says. I'm hearing about russia off awful lot. I'm hearing about russia collusion. that didn't exist now. This is disinformation. it's always russia. Russia russia russia. They're not even good at their job at avoiding reporting because they just point to russia and people see that especially now in the wake of us knowing it is hunters laptop. Were even now. Some people are saying we'll do. We truly know it's hundred laptop. I'm pretty sure if it has hundreds of pictures of hunter. Text messages have launcher eve. Yes without clothes on emails for monitor it is indeed hunters laptop. No we know it's hunters laptop. It's been pruitt's been third party. Didn't never denied it yet. And there's also information and phone numbers at a crop There's there's a lot of forensic analysis that's been done. This is back in october. So simple yes and but the media saw this threat at all costs they knew donald trump donald trump stood in their way of every single one of their very very treacherous schemes. And so so what. What are what are people supposed to do to consume information and whole powerful people accountable Because i mean. I only know like one or two people that work in the white house. Human working in the white house and a lot of my friends did it. Was non-stop leaks nonstop pressure from the washington. Post and new york times nonstop was as if they were sitting in the meeting with trump in the oval office and they would find out what happened quicker than even someone who's working in the wood. Yeah and there's no such pressure at no happening on the biden white house. I have not seen one week. I don't know. I know like one person working there. Ron claim. yeah well. They're very disciplined. There's no doubt about that. And ron claim they call him president. Clean you really is running our government. He is running our government Yeah but there's they did have one league recently which is really interesting commonly harris when she had that disastrous trip down to guatemala and mexico There was interestingly. I noticed it too. Because you're right. There have been no leaks But there was finally a leak of people within the white house saying that was a weird trip. On i'm paraphrasing here. Why can't you even answer a simple question in. It's interesting to see. The white house leaking against the vice president. It makes you curious about the dynamic. 'cause we finally got a leak in its against vice president so it seems like maybe there's some knives out between the vp's gm and the president's team. I mean it's just. It was nonstop during the trump era. And they would turn staffers against each other threatened stories. None of that is happening right now. And that kind of internal dynamic actually hurt the trump administration's ability to govern the country for the well being of all citizens but activists press doesn't care about any. They're very much sociopathic people. So you'll book coming out. Tell us about the idea. I'm really excited. This is the second time talking that i talked about it at the young women's leadership summit i was so excited to announce it here but it's called for such a time as this My faith journey through the white house and beyond and a center. Yes exactly and that comes from the book of ass. Thirty exactly right and it occurred to me that should be the title. Because when i was growing up to dc. I was very nervous. Almost in tears in my dad said kaley. You know maybe you were made for such a time as this and interestingly democrat commentator sent me the exact same phrase and it just stuck out in my head that god puts everyone in a certain place in a certain time for a reason purpose. I think i was at the podium for a reason for purpose in that time And i think everyone who reads. This book has a purpose. They're designed to fulfill just have to find it so it'll be about my journey through the white house. There will be some cool behind the scenes moments like when the president of the united states cove in nineteen the most serious threat to the presidency since reagan was shot I'll take you into those scenes but it will also be about my faith journey in high leaned on jesus christ during this time mazing. So is it available for preorder yet or it is. The most important amazon link is up. See to school my name and for such a time as this and we'll do a cover reveal in about two weeks but the preorder link is up and it will be out december seventh. It'll it'll do very well. Thanks sure and talk more about your faith and how important that was in the white house. We live increasingly secular society. I believe there's a massive spiritual battle happening country right now and there is. There's a lot of people that were praying for you and praying for your success. Talk about the role of your faith. You worked in the white. You could certainly feel those prayers. I will say You know sarah sanders. Who came before me. She's tell me she's wonderful She told me that before each press briefing. She would read her. Jesus calling book a devotional and she the day of my first press briefing. People didn't know this. But i literally my mom and dad can attest was in tears at two o'clock when i was supposed to take the podium because i was paralyzed with nervousness but sarah sanders sent me picture of her. Jesus calling from two years prior to the day And it was the perfect message about overcoming through faith in christ and i had complete serenity when i got to that podium and it wasn't anything about me..

"Hey everybody welcome to this. Very special episode of the charlie kirk show with us. Today is a friend of mine that i've known for quite a while. Yes from varney. And company days on fox business network. That's suraya kelly mcenany kaley. Welcome to the charlie cruickshank. You good to be here thank you. I think you have spoken every single young women's leadership summit. Yes i have. And i've loved every moment i mean i was a young girl who loved politics. I was a bit peculiar. I was a second grader. Like doing cheers for bob dole in the playground. So you know as a bit of an oddity at second grade. And i never knew there other women like me who love politics and wasn't so much of an oddity but i was just a young woman who's motivated by politics and to see these young women who remind me of myself. It's just really cool. I wish i would have had this outlet back when i was young. Well you're probably the most demanded speaker and so it. It is going to be packed and packed packed. And we put you at the last day for reasons and no one would leave early. But so let's walk. There's a lot of things i want to explore with you. I just tell our audience your story because it's pretty amazing from from getting into politics and then becoming press secretary for the white house and not just press secretary during normal boring though. You're press secretary during lockdowns virus fao cheesy race issue during every press secretary during probably the one of the most people would say chaotic. In american history i think is certainly the most chaotic period in american history. There's no doubt. I mean i'll never forget getting the job all locked down. I was actually locked out in florida. Not so bad to be locked down at the beach. I will say that But we were crossing a bridge. And i remember getting a call. And you've gotten a call from the white house. I'm sure it's like an odd set of numbers. I answered and so this is president trump and normally he would call me and just say oh good job in a media interview. I was with his campaign at the time but instead he said. Do you wanna be my press secretary and it came out of nowhere and i said well of course i do and he said mark get it done and presumably that was mark meadows. Who had just taken the job and it took a few weeks but ended up getting the job and it was just absolutely incredible to think about taking the podium during covid nineteen americans didn't know what this virus was like There's a lot of misinformation out there. By saint anthony fouled she and others And it was. It was a pretty cool experience. I had to lean on god quite a bit. Because i couldn't have done it myself. So what date did you take over the press secretary position. That's a good question. i know it was. I think it was april. Thirteen claimed leave. Yes right in the middle of all right in the middle. Yes a few days before my birthday and i went in and they were doing these cova task force briefings. You probably remember them. The president flanked by foulsham burke and others. And i came into that i didn't know if i would ever give a briefing and had been four hundred days. There had ever been a briefing from a press secretary and then one day he just looked at me and said kelly start briefing and i thought i would. Have you know week or so to prepare. He said do it before. Friday and this was on thursday so i had about a twenty four hour period but we've got a den so the normal succession to become press secretary. Is you work in the white house. Press shop as deputy press second. This is not not that. There's anything normal. Whatever is just that and then you kind of see how these briefings work but you came from the campaign. If i remember correctly which was not necessarily low profile. Lots of tv expert experience and all that. And then you get put right into this. President trump says briscoe. Do it now for someone who allegedly hates women. The kind that really bizarre like go represent our entire government police on the right on the biggest stage imaginable. And you handled yourself as such grace and you start. You came up with this amazing thing. The binders tell us about the binders in the tabs of all the research while thank you and you know yes certainly. That is the case that you're normally deputy press secretary and you kind of get some institutional knowledge. The knowledge i had was when i was an intern during the bush era And you know that that wasn't really deep institutional knowledge. There's a learning curve. And i knew that coming into the job but you know i knew. I had the preparation. I had gone to oxford for a year with a tutorial system. Where you read your paper out loud and then the tutor grills use you always have to have footnotes. You always have to have facts and be on your toes. And then of course i went to cnn. Where i was Eight online -servative one conservative long panels pan out somewhere over there or conservative. Exactly and the pummeling you get on those panels prepares you for the white house. Press briefing room. I think more than any time being a deputy press secretary could so you always have your facts. And that's how the binder developed you know. I got the first draft that my team gave me. And i said guys where the footnotes where the stats and my team was great and they quickly rose to the occasion. But you know. I just demanded the same kind of Statistics and you know work that i that i did at oxford in at cnn. And i had a great team around me. There was four hundred days without oppress. Kind of briefing. Is that right. Yes they had the coronavirus task force briefings but it had been four hundred days since not my predecessor. Stephanie grisham but my predecessor. Before that sarah sanders so we had been through another press secretary. Not how to briefing on. And i took the podium for the first time after four hundred days. After you had ravenous wolves are members of the press like finally then. They met their match. And it's it's so how does it. This is not a question. I ask often but brock obama gets asked this question. How does it make you feel when you see how easy the current press secretary. Has it incredible. Look i mean. I just was yesterday or a few days ago. I was looking through some of the questions from my press. Briefings and i just wanted to compare the two side by side a straight objective comparison and the questions. I found that were posted biden administration. Were house the white house cat. How did the dog. it was biden's dog involved in a biting accident is is he okay He was asked. how does it or jen. Psaki rather was asked. How does it feel for biden to sit in the oval office. And then i was asked. Is the president happy. The south lost the civil war. That was literally one of the questions. I was asked inch. You know it was. It was actually ryan lisera. That's right on par. You guys right on par. I would just love to have seen.

"Will now pause the sale of F 35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates and munitions to Saudi Arabia.

"trump white house" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having avenue great to be with you. My my goal is to ask harder questions here than you had at the white in the White House. Press poll well. I'm glad that this is a really quick interview. I'm going to walk away now before. He so the conservative base. Just adores you. You fought for the president who fought for our country so unbelievably affectively eloquently as White House. Press Secretary for the young people. Listen to our podcast. Let's start just with your career kind of trajectory. How did you end up as as White House press secretary always love hearing the stories honestly? I sort of kind of fell into the job. I've always been more on the behind the scenes side of campaign pain and consulting and I'd been running campaigns All over the country particularly my home state of Arkansas and I had been working for my dad's campaign for a while and when he got out of the race I was looking at the field and determined not only was Donald Trump the best person to beat Hillary Clinton but I liked a lot of the things he was saying so I'd gotten to know quite a few people in the campaign over the course of the primary and so I signed on with President Trump's campaign in February of two thousand sixteen so pretty early in the primary and one day I got a phone call and they said hey would you be willing to go on a TV tomorrow. And I said sure why not and so I did in my role. Oh morphed from kind of senior adviser to more of a surrogate I ended up spending the majority of my time on the trump campaign doing tv work and after that Became came the principal. Deputy Press Secretary Sean. Spicer and Shortly after the administration ended up as the press secretary. You always handled yourself so well I mean the the press is more dishonest. And I think we've ever seen in our nation's history they're committed towards destruction and activism. Not Actually telling the truth. Can you walk us through. What would a typical day in the White House be? I mean there would be probably not the typical day is no typical day but just scheduling. How early would you get in? I get these questions all the time from people. I don't really know. Well I think you nailed it right away. There is no typical day in the White House. But that's one of the things I loved about it And certainly with this president because he has such a unique and different style and he controls so much of the message. Not just for the White House but for the country He sort of sets the tone of what we're we're going to talk about for the day so sometimes you wake up in the morning and you think that the focus is going to be on one thing and by nine. Am It's on four different things that you never even saw coming But the usually we would probably get started morning producers for Marine show start calling anywhere around five. Am so you'd be up at forty forty five five am yeah. You didn't have to be in the office at that time. But they'll start emailing and calling. I mean one of the things that people I think don't understand. Is that the press secretary. Okay everybody sees kind of the behind the podium part but they don't realize that every reporter pretty much in the world has your email and cell phone number and so you're accessible twenty four hours a day day to thousands of reporters all over the place and they call they email and they're constantly looking for information or statement And we kind of try to divide some of it up but a lot of the morning show folks start calling pretty early in the morning Looking for guidance comments on something that may have happened last night or things that they're talking talking about making sure that they still have the administration's take on whatever is carrying the news that morning I try to be in the office by seven. Thirty and Pretty much off to the races from there then the president never sleeps. I mean so. You don't sleep if he doesn't sleep you don't sleep. He works until eleven or twelve every night right and as you know. He's up Brighton. Early and thirties. It's not a surprise to sometimes get a call from the president by you know six six thirty in the morning as well. I mean from people that have worked in other White House. They say this pace is unlike anything they've ever seen. Is that probably fair to say I think so. I mean you know. I've talked to quite a few reporters that have covered multiple pull administrations and a lot of them are going to be really board In about five years when Donald Trump is not president anymore because You know I don't think you could compare pair anything to the pace in the schedule that he I was talking with a reporter from some outlet and he asked me and I couldn't answer but you you could answer a better. He said why is it. Seemed like things are changing quicker under trump than any other president. I just there's so much not just policy but just differences of trajectory projector. And do you think it's obviously the team that president trump has around him. You being a part of it but it all starts with him rice lately. It's all driven by him. He is somebody who wants to get things done. He's a businessman who comes any says we have a problem. We'll let's fix it and he doesn't go the traditional route of let's figure out. Let's get seventeen committees to discuss it. And he's like we have a problem. We know how to fix it. Just go out and do it And that was one of the great things about working for him. He didn't care if you you were. You know the press secretary or whatever else if you were there and he thought you were capable. He'd be like Sarah Take it on. Go do it and I remember one day. He asked me to call the national security adviser and do this. He has Sarah. Can you make a phone call or not. Yes sir he goes then just get it done. It was like Yes sir. And he's is that way with everything he bureaucracy almost exactly and he's Sudbury refreshing thing for Washington something that Washington so desperately we needed was donald trump to come in shake things up and say you know. We don't have to make everything take years to happen. Let's get some stuff done and let's deliver on the promises that we made during the campaign and he does that every single day. So you'd be up at four forty five. Am You also raising kids right and they help get you up at five hundred tests. So you're dealing with all that you're in. You're in the office if you will the White House by seven thirty dealing with everything and your days could go 'til eight nine ten eleven so you're on four or five hours of sleet and if you say one thing wrong or one common misplaced. It's a story it's the end of the world and people have to realize though that you were the fatigue league right that sets in for any human being right. How did you deal with that? And that's what I you know. I we like to think that we you know work at a breakneck taste turning point but we're not running the White House and you know we do red eye flights and all this my heart goes out to you and Hogan I'm like you guys are under the gun and after after five or six days of this in a row or you only on three hours of sleep. I mean that's that's really really hard and just you have to continue to be precise what what inside can you share. Share to how. You're able to to work through that. Because I mean imagine how much harder it is for the president. He's literally the most powerful man in the world. And everything he says and does is so scrutinized That it's the stress on us is a lot but what he's carrying is unlike anything. Any of US could have imagined particularly given the amount of incoming coming that he takes the a constant barrage of attacks that he has to live under For the rest of us we love our country and we love the president. We love the results and the things that he's delivering on. And you know it was an honor and a privilege to get to play a small part report in what he was doing and I had an incredible incredible husband. who was patient enough to be supportive throughout that process and At the end of the day my faith is another huge part of what I think powers and and defines who we are and gives us the confidence we need to go in and face some of the toughest days In that building and you know those different jobs getting in shape is just about losing weight. It's about learning healthier habits and feeling.

"trump white house" Discussed on RJ Politics

"I listened but time from the Las Vegas Review Journal this is. RJ politics thrilled the be back in Nevada. How Long Nevada governor for all the data. I have more energy she then a pack of wolves is enormously. Hello My name is Rory appleton politics reporter for the Las Vegas Review Journal and I'm Steve Sibelius politics and government editor for the future welcome to RJ politics our weekly podcast discussing local state and national politics this week we have a far-reaching reaching conversation with New Jersey Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker. We'll also discuss a breaking development out of the trump White House and the Nevada. GOP's decision to endorse the President without a caucus and later today. We'll have a special bonus episode to discuss the Third Democratic presidential debate which took place on Thursday night leading leading off we have reviewed journal. White House correspondent Debra Saunders here to tell us about President Trump's decision to fire national security adviser John Bolton Deborah Alexa Loo against the place to start here would be to say that this was long rumored right. This was not something that took anybody by surprise. There was rumors that trump trump and Bolton had tensions for quite a while. That's right in fact. It's sort of amazing that trump even higher John Bolton because John Bolton is a hawkish Republican who was very supportive of the Iraq war to today when trump is talking about Bolton. He was criticizing him for his support in the Iraq war which made you wonder when trump picked him. Why did he pick this guy. Is You know trump really wants to end. Endless wars wants to get. US troops out of them in yeah he chose to be his top national security. Guy Somebody Risk Jerry in favor of the Iraq war. That's you know that is a great question. Why did he hire Bolton. I mean his views were known at the time was it was it just because Bolton projected strength and trump is well known to appreciate that kind of equality in one of his advisors. Yeah I mean I I mean for what trump needed somebody right he he let Michael Flynn is first national security advisor. It was gone very quickly and trump. HR McMaster to follow trump never liked hr V. Master and and so when he gets rid of him he also asked to make the choice rather quickly so he sees a Bolton on Fox News and he likes what he sees and he's sometime. He's not the best person person choosing hires I think I think that's a safe thing to say given the turnover in this administration so deborah in terms of White House operations there are there are those news white houses that want to have dissenting views and I recall reading about Richard Nixon's White House where he had some advisers who were there specifically to to attack the policies the ideas that were being proposed just so he would have both sides could make a fully informed decision that does not seem to be the the way that the trump. White House is running. Is it well yeah. That's that's the controversy because on the one hand a lot of people feel that trump gets revolt holden somebody he disagrees with but trump also hired built in somebody disagrees with any was aware of phones decisions I think that there was more of a personality clash lashed between them. That Bolton was the kind of guy that trump would consider to be a spoiled. There are things that Bolton said that re- that at times undercut cut trump like when he talked about using the Qaddafi model for ten John on and those are the sorts of things that really bothered trump so it's one thing for them to have disagreements Minson private but there were times when the disagreements would rather public and I think trump felt that they undermined what happened remembers followed right dafter there was supposed to be a peace talk at Camp David with a Taliban we know built in oppose that and I think it may be that trump felt outfit not only did both the Pos at but that Bolton was GonNa make sure that people knew what almost happened in and so he missiles undercut in that way as well yeah and and trump of course you know announcing that may have been a preemptive thing with Bolton but that was just the tip of the iceberg because I mean the on North Korea Bolton was not there when trump took that historic step into North Korea the first president ever set foot in North Korea he he was a dissident on a number of Trolley Ah yes on his way to Mongolia literally on his way to go and so he was a dissident dissident on on a lot of would donald trump would consider his major foreign policy initiatives. I think the only exception might be Israel that's that's. That's a really that's a great example and the there was a lot of tension between the two and patchy lasted. What seventeen months is pretty amazing now. Here's the problem trump will be the first president to have had four national security advisers and it in this short in his first term in the short amount of time and not and it's going to be hard for him to find somebody. Perhaps maybe not I mean there are times when people who'd want to work for president who's undercut you this this way but there have been a lot of good pixel. Come after people say that but it means that you don't get the kind of continuity that you want in your foreign policy shop off with Bolton's departure. You're probably going to see other people's you know mid level people leaving an essay and so you you get this kind of churn. Were you just don't have to to -bility that you want in your foreign policy shop and I know that trump had words of praise for former secretary of State Condoleeza Rice when she made her appearance recently. I don't think that that was the beginning of an entreaty to have her come back to government service but do you have any idea who he mites a select for the next national security adviser number five will call Well Rick Grenell. Who is the ambassadors embassador. Germany is someone who is high on my list. I he's very good that combative style that trump likes. He gets along very well with trump. He's he is by the way which is another prudential. If you will for trump to to show people the top names Brian Hook who's been part of the foreign policy team since the days of Rex Tillerson and he's moved up another name another another namely Harris Teeter big and he was the guy who stanford professor who helped work out this summit is annoying and then another name that I've seen is a O'Brien in who Americans were held hostage negotiator and he went to Sweden for ace APP Rocky interesting interesting notwithstanding Bolton's departure trump's instinct seems to have been. I want to end the war in Afghanistan. I want to bring troops home. This is something I ran on Do you see any possibility that that might come to fruition with the new national security advisor in the in the remaining time left and trump term kissed. I think in the end the troubles about what happened after Barack Doc Obama pulled. US troops over walk and and not want to go all the way I think tied with the discriminate with Bolton I understand it is it wasn't that trump. Trump wants to withdraw five thousand or so to the fourteen thousand. US troops in Afghanistan. I still don't get why trump just didn't do it. Instead he decides he wants to have had these negotiations with the Taliban who I wouldn't consider it to be really trustworthy and they're likely to do things that would make people regret having to deal with them. Whereas perhaps I think bolts arguing. Okay take them out but just let them know. We can be back at any time so I. I don't send you're gonNA find a a lot of people saying. Let's get everybody out. It's it's just the the sort of chaos it could follow is is. Is there something very few people. I want to say yeah absolutely will Debra Saunders. Thank you very much for your reporting and for bringing your insights to RJ politics for having me getting into stateside politics. Let's talk a little bit about the Nevada. GOP's decision to formally endorse the President and cancel. It's February caucus. Steve is a lot to say on this one one yeah. This was something that our previous guests. Debra Saunders broke a back in early August and that was the passage of a resolution that that will allow the Republican Central Committee to vote on whether or not to endorse the president for renomination. If there's an incumbent president president at which of course there is regardless of any challenges that he may have and of course Donald Trump has a number of challengers who are in the race who are more getting in there every day it seems like but no no one serious and so the Republican Party passed that resolution and with the support of the Central Committee and so that vote didn't happen the endorsement actually hasn't happened it will happen in the future but they now have the ability to do that and Nevada's not alone. There's a few other states that have taken that step as well and it did get a lot of attention on twitter. There are a lot of people who tweeted to me when I put the story out about that are stories written by Dr Carson City Bureau reporter Bill Denser when I put his story out. a lot of people said well. There goes democracy. It's the end of of a of the voice of the people all of that sort of thing which I found interesting because look the central committee is elected by the party members solarge. They debated this issue amongst themselves. They voted on the issue so this was the result of a democratic process but I can also see see the the viewpoints of people who may not appreciate president trump wanting to say no. I'd rather have John Casick if he gets into the race. I'd rather vote for mark. Sanford furred were bill weld or someone else who's running for president in the Republican primary. I just don't think it's right to just say Donald. Trump can have it simply because he's he's the incumbent and he's the most likely to win. So there's a lot of division. I think on that point yeah you know and it's interesting to what you're talking about. In terms of like you know it was a representative process. Just like anything else and you know the people sort of complaining about well. You know I wanNA participate in the presidential election and things like that. It's really no different I mean the public or the popular vote doesn't decide the President Anyway Reno ultimately re- We'd be in a completely different world if it did and so you know all the system up and down is all about liking representative who can speak for you and so if you have a problem with this as a Republican you know it's your job to sort of pick pick different members for that Central Committee which is you're absolutely right to run yourself right exactly and and remember the you know a lot of people forget what the caucus it this. This isn't like a primary..

"The trump White House here's ABC Jerry Preston with political analyst it seems like that G. seven summit was ages ago it was only this week president trump came back but it wasn't what did you think of the G. seven summit how how did it beheaded all shake out to you well I think it was president trump arguing with the world but also arguing with himself and at the end of the day the world recognizing that you don't have to argue with the president you can move or maneuver around it I was struck by how many times he's on the sidelines literally not even going to climate meeting but also just the the gist of the the world community was that you can work without the president the United States Senate it may be a a bit of a turning point where the where the world community rather than trying to convince the president of things or ordered or try to bully him and and recognize that they won't change his mind is is just we're trying to find the avenues around him and that maybe you don't need the United States at the table for everything that that that happens on the world stage that's fascinating to me because I mean come on we're the United States of America I hate to say you know we're the biggest in the bass but come on I mean we we were so intricate for so many years and now you're saying world leaders are just saying no okay hi we're gonna go ahead and meet on our own in a mate these things could be cyclical and it could be thank you very much go back in the other direction but I I feel like the there was a lot less worrying among other world powers what United States thinks it is what the president thinks of this I think they recognize he's going to say a lot of things he's gonna have a lot of bluster is gonna contradicting myself he's going to negotiate in in bizarre ways sometimes but you can't try to influence it so much as you can just find avenues around it so the climate change discussion he was not a part of what Boris Johnson and his role in his relationship with president trump the new prime minister of Great Britain with the the E. U. pullout looming on on Halloween October thirty first that is a twist because he has been president trump or something of a kindred spirit how they are peas in a pod and can do so on the world stage so have United States and Great Britain work together I think there's a lot of domestic politics after play out for prime minister Johnson before he can turn to of these matters of world affairs but there is there's a possibility of some team more going on there and I think the the recognition that the same kind of forces that propel president trump to office of the of the forces behind president of the forces behind Boris Johnson and those are forces that frankly even other world leaders that that don't have that at the top right now have to contend with and have to worry about there are trump lake in Boris Johnson like figures in places like France and Germany and and they recognize that those are those are looming threats to the current leadership structure former defense secretary James Mattis is out with a new book and the from the looks brief FAQ experts that we seen I mean talking a lot about to travel as a nation and polarization things that we've heard before is it gonna break any new ground in this street mass book I think the former's in the trunk there are have a hard time breaking through because the president does make so much noise and that we can always queue up the president attacking in James Madison insulting him now the guy that he loved this mad mad dog in and really boosted early on why I could foresee that playing out in the not so distant future and from there it's hard to see what happens next because he doesn't have that perch but there's an accumulated weight to a lot of these things and that is pointedly is not going after trump personally he says that that he's he is still giving some space he may not do that forever but Madison still soldier and and doesn't want to be seen as just attacking the commander in chief okay we got a hurricane looming and on Mar a Lago right in its sights the White House response so far as to what's happening in Florida and to what happened Porter Rico what you think of that well he he this war with the mayor of San Juan is that anyone is gonna can you continuing one and I I think it's we'll see if it if it changes.

"Have you along for part of your weekend. You're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert want. Well, there are certainly some matters for tennesseans that matter to people all across the country. It's part of what we're talking about today with a guest who is joining us on the phone, and it's a head of his own appearance here in the state capital later tonight. He is one of the most decorated and recognized writers in American contemporary history. We're talking about Bob Woodward. Bob, welcome to Tennessee. Thank you. Tell us a little bit about what's going on with you right now. I mean, I hear obviously, you're going to be speaking tonight. It's coming on the heels of your latest book fear Trump in the White House is the title of the book, but you're even bounce around all over the country. I guess yes. I have. And it's to talk about the book and also answer questions, which for me is the best part of evening like this. You'd never know. What's on people's minds? And in the end. That's what counts when it was announced that this book was coming out. I saw a lot of the hits that you did on television leading up to the actual release part of me. My initial reaction was just thinking about there's a lot of correlation to president Nixon, and what was going on. Then obviously, the facts that you were so instrumental with regard to the sequence of events that took place. Just on a very basic level. We're talking about investigative journalism and writing and politics is this something that you're still having fun with. Yes. Indeed. It is you know, journalism is probably the best job because you get to make momentary increase in people's lives when they're interesting, and then get the hell out when they cease to be interesting. And that that always happens. But but I had three pairs if you will. Looking at the Trump White House. I could have looked at the many untruths. He's told my newspaper the Washington Post has documented over eight thousand I could have looked at the Muller special counsel Russia investigation. I quite frankly did didn't find anything new. There at this point. I think it's a serious investigation. And it's something we're going to have to be patient for. And of course, that's the hardest thing for everyone journalists and people in the country. And then the third pass was what Trump does is president. And that became my focus how he deals in foreign affairs from China. Russia literally, I. How he deals on the economic issues terrorists immigration the economy, and what I found is in the book documents that there are so many things that Trump is in his head that are just not true. And the result is because he's the key decision maker. We have a governing crisis in all of those areas. I've just take one he insists on imposing terrorists. This is hitting consumers and farmers and people when for instance, he impose field terrorists. A lot of the businesses that use steel now have reduce the number of hours people are working by as much as a half. So, but he thinks tariffs your good thing. And we're losing money when we hit trade deficit with any country, economists and people who work in the White House who cabinet officers and tried to straighten him out on that. But he clings to it is he does so many. The ideas that is I don't have that foundation in reality. You mentioned those three pads and even mentioned China, which is an interesting segue because in just this past week. There's been the announcement of the subpoena for the Trump campaign with regard to some of the contributions that had been made for the twenty sixteen campaign and talking about where there may have been some foreign influence, certainly I'm old enough to remember when that by itself could have been a major story, and I think back to the nineteen sixty six campaign finance story that you had remember when that by itself would be a big story. Yes. And these are all so many balls in the air, so many investigative balls in the air, and then one of the takeaways I have and. Show in the book that of the nine presidents. I've written books about from Nixon to Trump that president has an incredible amount of power. There is a concentration of power in the presidency. And because Trump likes to talk and tweets almost every day. He is captured the the national discussion about a full range of issues and people in our business are forced to read. And a report on these things that he says often just are not only a surprise to the public and the media to his closest aides in the White House in his cabinet officers. Did the relationship that you had with Carl Bernstein did that help drive some of the energy where that story was able to unfold easier that way or did the story just kind of become something that happened upon both of you that drove the association that we know of you with him today. Well, we helped each other. We didn't know each other beginning, and I discovered that he's a remarkable journalist and writer, very aggressive. He developed the approaches let's go see people at night in their homes knock on the doors without an appointment, which is very gutsy approach. One nine tried to adopt and did adopt on the front from book. It's astounding. How often even when you show up? You get some knows you get I guess every now and then. Yes. It can be very important. So I think what what Carl and I learned is that you can't do this alone. And it's great to have somebody looking over your shoulder and kind of coordinating every step. We took as we conducted this investigation. But at the time. And wisdom. Was king. Is it often is in the conventional wisdom was Nixon was too smart to be involved in something like the Watergate crimes, and if he was no one would ever find out we were working on the local staff of the post and the editors including. Copy editor Ben bradlee turned us loose and said, he working on this story. Where are we going? He always felt was something suspicious about it. And he wanted to make sure that we didn't say oh take a day off that was almost not allowed knocking on doors tactic in the evenings. You said something you can't do alone. Is this something you could still do today? Yes. I'm the Trump spoke at one point it was eleven o'clock at night. I had the phone number of somebody in the White House, and I sat there, and I, you know, eleven o'clock I was seventy four years old at the time. And you know, maybe I should just go to bed in cool it because I had the number because I remember the history of going and talking to people in windy, trusting cooperation, I called this person said I'd like to come by. You said it's eleven o'clock at night. Are you nuts? And I said I realize it's eleven o'clock at night. But I am four minutes from your home. And he said four minutes from my home. How do you know? Where I live. And I said I've good research in each said. Okay. Come on by. I was surprised locker his wife was out of town. And we talked to not on. But it was getting low on that at time where you can see it and feel it in the sky and eventually I was able to develop relationship with him. And get documents notes and diaries, which are the building blocks of my book. Come this is not what somebody remembered. Oh, yeah. I think so. And so said the following. But. If you look at the book, you see a quote from dated documents the meeting just one afternoon in April, but it will say.

"When you were eventually, let go or your book makes the argument that you were pushed out you were told you did not have security clearance. That it had never been activated. Either. That's true. And you had a bunch of face to face access with the president literally within striking distance with no security clearance, more. It's not true. And they lied to you. What do you think? I don't know. The good news is that there are dozens upon dozens of pictures online of me and meetings in all these meetings. So they can't deny that. I was there. Ultimately, I don't really know what to make of that anybody who knows anything about the the background shy or the security clearance process knows that you can do a lot of paperwork. There's all these background checks. They call your friends and family people throughout your lives. And kind of the last step is that they flip a switch that says you have security clearance. Now, you know, I went through all the beginning parts of that. And and had no no problem with that. It seemed to me that may have been just an oversight. But it may have monitor standings it also happened with a lot of others there. And one of the things I talk about in the book Joshua's is there are other people there that you know, Rapporter's a great example, there's a behind the scenes. Of the rob porter scandal where he ultimately had to leave the White House accusations of domestic abuse. And that kind of thing that that he was able to be in one of the closest jobs to the president United States with these kind of things in his background Steph. Yeah. It's a very very powerful very close job. So a lot of issues on the security clearance side. I think in the administration cliff before we let you go. What is next for you? You mentioned that you sold your business. What's your next step before we go, well, hopefully the bestseller list so start there, but I'm enjoying doing my communications consulting work now.

"This is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. In Washington cliffs sins was a member of the Trump communications team. I during the presidential campaign, then during the first fifteen months of the administration SIMS describes the White House power structure, not as a flow chart, but as a solar system with President Trump as the sun and everyone else in orbits at varying. Distances sim says he was pretty close more of a mercury than Jupiter so close that regardless of his job title. He was a fly on the wall for meetings with heads of state the cabinet kings princes and captains of industry. He says he heard the president scream at house speaker Paul Ryan, he saw former press secretary Sean Spicer, steal a fridge. He helped the president draft a literal enemies list, and he witnessed the resignations of Spicer rhines pre-bus, Anthony Scaramucci, Steve Bannon end eventually himself joining us from NPR in New York is. Cliff SIMS former special assistant to the president and director of White House message strategy, his new book is called team of vipers my five hundred extraordinary days in the Trump White House cliff. Welcome to one A, thanks for having me. I feel like I'm back in and Alabama. You know, before I got into Trump world, actually hosted a radio show down there. So I feel like I'm back in the saddle today. I assure you this will be slightly different from Alabama. But I'm glad the Veyron feel familiar, and hopefully, you're familiar with taking questions and comments because there will be quite a few of them. Let's start with the title team of vipers in the author's note. You write Lincoln famously had his team of rivals. Trump had his team of vipers. What do you mean by vipers? Well, you know, I actually I love that doors Kerns Goodwin book and. Reading up on the Lincoln administration. There were certainly a lot of issues there, and they really were a team of rivals. But ultimately what they were able to do was come together behind their commander in chief and subordinate their views to his even when it was hard. And what I noticed in the Trump administration is that that's basically never happened that you have this group of people who come from various backgrounds some of them political some not some from the business world some with no experience in politics. You put them all in a room together. And and there's just a power struggle that basically took place from day one in there and very self serving and selfish a lot of times and undermining the president undermining each other most of my experience with teams, and you know, I played basketball in college. And I remember, you know, we had tough times and teams that kind of brought us together. It was kind of us against the world bunker type mentality that never quite happened in the Trump. White house. And so while we were, you know, fighting whatever external forces may be out there. We were also spent a lot of time fighting amongst ourselves in. So that's where you get your your team vipers. It sounds like you're describing a group of people who are poisonous and are not above biting one another. Well, there's no doubt. And one of the things I try to do in. This book is also talk about my own participation in those kind of things, and you know, a lot of what I wanted to do with this book was certainly tell the honest, you know, true story about what happened in the White House. But also kind of my personal journey is a part of that. And part of that was kind of, you know, peeling back the curtain on certain aspects of my character that I had never really had to wrestle with because I had never had that kind of proximity to to power in had never been in quite an environment. Like that in a revealed. A lot about me and saw a certainly don't hold myself above the fray in this. When I say vipers, I was one of them a lot of times, I should note before we dive into the substance of the book that it has drawn and expectedly intense. Reaction from the White House this morning, President Trump tweeted, quote, a low level staffer that. I hardly knew named cliff SIMS wrote yet another boring book based on made up stories and fiction..

"I mean, it's you know, what you heard from Senator Warren was a it was a thoughtful approach to a similar outcome. And I think that's just something that's fundamentally different about her and President Trump and men probably I think it's safe to say most Democrats and President Trump. There's a very rational thoughtful argument for why we should be pulling our troops out of Afghanistan in Syria. I think Senator Warren late that out. But thoughtfulness is not something that is in great supply in the Trump White House and Jennifer cinde Warren's going to have a important forum for this argument whenever there is a new Trump a Defense Secretary nominee who comes up for confirmation. She's a member of the Armed Services Committee. She'll be able to engage that nominee in this directly in a very high profile way. Right. Yeah. If and if Trump has has an almanac and also see a scenario where he tries to avoid that and have the acting secretary of defense just stay there and not have an not have that policy further further examined by the by the congress. But I mean, we got a whole new ballgame. Right. We have a democratic house that has a subpoena power. That means not. I think we all hear that phrase. And we think about Muller investigation Russia, but that also means that the house foreign affairs committee has oversight. And then you have the democratic presidential campaign. Primary happening where I think you're going to see more actually thoughtful examination of issues, and that's gonna really change the dynamic around around Trump. And I think that you'll start to see that we will see that new reality set in relatively quickly, and it should be. So for the people at that address on Pennsylvania Avenue, an atom. Oh, Elizabeth Warren said she believes all the democratic candidates should be directly financed of from voters. She doesn't want self-funding by rich democratic candidates, and she doesn't want giant corporate backers and other kind of PACS supporting democratic candidates. Yeah. I mean, I think that's a bowl position. And I think it's the right one. I think that one of the things that scares a lot of people about Senator Warren. Scares people with power is that she is proposing a fundamental shift in power, she wants to take power away from people who have used it to do some very bad things and give it to the people. And I think that's what he's proposing here Johnson and Jen for Mary thank you both for joining us. Really?

"Whether they're in the government, or they're in the opposition coming out of the Trump White House and Trump I the Trump campaign, and the Trump White House has been the failure to condemn right wing extremism. We saw in Charlottesville in the summer of two thousand seventeen resort throughout the Trump campaign. We see it in Hungary, Invicta or bun with his attacks on George Soros. Now, you may dislike George Soros. You make disagree with his efforts to instill democracy of the type of democracy wants to instill, but or bun in Hungary is engaging blatantly. The anti-semitic attack or in your own country. You're former mayor of London Ken Livingstone who under the guise of talking about history, really mangles history. Mangles history writes in that, you know, the design this than the Nazis were in cahoots with one another and designers wanted the Nazis to win. So will the juice would come to Israel and various and sundry other things. None of he takes one little historical fact, and he he twists it and turns it, and when you criticize his him, he accuses you of raising the specter of anti-semitism, and as we now know he's not alone in the labor party. You mentioned the victory by the Hungarian prime minister. I did want to ask you specifically about the astonishing speech. He gave quite recently. And I absolutely don't mean. Astonishing in a good way. I'm sure you're familiar with it. But he went on about fighting an enemy that is different from us not open but hiding not straightforward. But Crofty does not believe in working, but speculates with money does not have own homeland. But feels that owns the whole world. I mean, you didn't need to be too bright to figure out. What was what was going on there? I'm really impressed that you can find it funny. But who is? Out of sadness and left out of great pain. But who does that still play with is there a commonality to the audience around the world that is receptive to this? I think there is. I think it plays to his base, which is the Hungarian who feels this enfranchised by recent either globalization of the economy, e you measures who feels that his or her Hungary is changing in.
