Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser

"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

Enes Kanter: Enemy of the State

"Jeremy SCHAAP WE'RE GONNA talk to and his canter himself later in this episode. But I I wanted to talk to you specifically because you did cover kanter story really in depth for sixty last year, and by now I suppose a lot of American Mba fans are vaguely aware that cantor is deep into this long-running feud with the government of Turkey, his native country. But most fans also probably couldn't explain what that viewed is actually about. So let's start off broadly because protests of all kinds have become kind of relatively commonplace in the NBA. What about kanter situation here mixed the so unique. Well Here. We have well established NBA player. Who is one of the most famous athletes his country's ever produced? Who cannot go back to his native country because he is someone who has every reason to believe if he set foot on Turkish soil now? You'll be arrested. Or that? Physical harm would come to him. And his canter made a decision a long time ago. that he would be a vocal outspoken in highly visible opponents of the Turkish government would sees him as nothing less than its enemy. And so what are the roots of this conflict between cantor and his home country? It's very simple and also very complicated. It's simple in the sense that cantor is persona non grata because he is a supporter. Of a man named Fatullah Doolan. Who is Muslim cleric whose lived in the United States last twenty, one years, and at one time was very close ally of president of Turkey but there has been a falling out between the two men and the respective movements. Over the course of the last decade aired one has been ruling in an increasingly authoritarian way. Silencing his critics, intimidating critics locking up opponents of his government's he's believed that Fatullah NHS movement has had too much power and he believes that ghoulish followers had too much influence particularly in the judiciary civil service in the police and that they have been working to undermine him grueling and air to honor now sworn enemies nemeses of each other. In an his canter as a supporter of Fatullah doolan vocal one at that. is considered by many intricacy as kind of traitor. How does cantor even get involved in this in the first place like you just described? An extreme religious political situation how does he end up taking side in this? Well, he's someone who grew up in fact as part of Fatullah Goulding's movement. The Movement had established schools by most counts, very good schools, not just in Turkey, but around the world and his cancer is someone who was educated in the schools someone who was associated with the movement as tens of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of Turks have been over the last several decades. Now, as an adult kanter has continued to follow the teachings of Fatullah, Golan, who has promoted a moderate form of Islam in NS is certainly one of if not his most prominent supporter. So Jeremy described a dispute between two men who knew each other well, the president of Turkey Air Lan and this cleric Fatullah Golan now struggling for control of the country. And the date July Fifteenth Two thousand sixteen is a really pivotal one in this story. So what happened on that day roughly four years ago now? The details are still now for years later. Unclear in some respects. But what we can say is that there was an attempt to seize power in Turkey. By some elements of the military, we are coming on the air with breaking news and apparent military coup. Now, unfolding in Turkey Turkish state television has been seized by the military martial law imposed across the country. After a few hours, the coup was beaten back several hundred people died. And prison air to one immediately laid the blame at the feet of Fatullah Golan and his supporters.

Saudi sentences 5 to death for Jamal Khashoggi's killing

"Green Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor announced this morning that five people have been sentenced to death for last year's murder of Jamal Khashoggi let's recall that Chris showed G. a columnist for The Washington Post and critic of Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin so mine was killed in the country's consulate in Istanbul investigators believe the killers then dismembered and disposed of console Jeez body US intelligence concluded that the crown prince was involved in the decision to kill Khashoggi and Generac has covered this grisly story from the beginning and she joins us now from Amman Jordan hi Jane hi there so what do we know about the people who've been convicted at this point well it's still a lot of questions about that because this trial was very secretive there apparently few diplomats that into the trial as well as some members of casualties family those members of course living in Saudi Arabia are under seventy pressure so the names of not been released yet we do know that five of them were sentenced to death that can be appealed though and the thing that's important about this is who wasn't sentenced the trial will determined that two top officials the Saudi crown prince's former top adviser and the consul general in Istanbul workers Georgie was killed were innocent and it absolves them of blame now the U. S. doesn't believe this it's placed both those men on on sanctions for involvement in the killing well then you have the question of the crown prince and in Saudi Arabia maintains that he had nothing to do with this and have have we learned more about this killing in in the time since so many questions we still don't know what exactly happened but what seems clear is that the the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin someone who initially said that he knew nothing about it probably did know what we know about this very grisly killing is mostly from the Turkish government he was killed in the consulate last October after he went there to get papers for his marriage and during that time he was confronted by Saudi agents who had flown in on a private plane one of them the head of the autopsy department carrying a bone saw the Turks released what they say are recordings of part of the process in which she was killed the body disappeared his remains still haven't been found can you just step back for a minute I mean you mentioned the US sanctions on some of these people believed to be involved here how much has the U. S. Saudi relationship been impacted by a bucket so Jeez death in an investigation since then well she was a columnist who wrote for publications including The Washington Post he was a U. S. resident Saudi Arabia's not seen as as the most fantastic of allies not just for this but for its involvement in in the war in Yemen and other things but there are a couple of things about the US Saudi relationship one is and perhaps the most important one is the president trump really values this relationship as does his son in law Jared Kushner who has bonded with the Saudi crown prince trump has made the point of the there are billions and billions of dollars at stake in U. S. arms deals arm sold to Saudi Arabia and that doesn't really wash with a lot of other officials and in fact the Senate has asked for the head of the US intelligence to come and brief them on what they know because the CIA has concluded according to a lot of reports of that in fact the seventy crown prince ones involved in ordering the killings in pairs Jane arrive in Amman

"turkish government" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"Breaks out and applies. He said that is worth clapping for. I know that audio wasn't great right after he said the military. Those staging the coup against the president of Turkey wanted Turkey to be a secular country and his audience applauded. Well, the very next day. Mike Pence was introduced as Trump's running mate. Did he to support the idea of a secular government? I'm a Christian conservative and a Republican in that order in that order now, I guess secular government is good from the Joyti Muslim countries. Maybe theocracy is good for Christian ones. According to Mike Pence, but that's another show. But Josh, can you tell the story of Michael Flynn's conversion from unpaid supporter of the coup against the Turkish president air to one to paid supporter of him. Do you know enough to know where the money came in? I don't know that I know that in sufficient detail, but I do know that as Flynn was sort of winding down his career. You know, he was the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was basically removed or fired from that position by President Obama. And the, you know, the Washington Post at an interesting article a few days ago, sort of describing the radicalization of Mike Flynn who was once considered a really fairly elite thinker at the defense department known for some new approaches in combat situations overseas, and then at some point seems to have become a really obsessed with radical Islam and not just radical Islam. But the notion that Islam as a whole poses a threat to the United States. And I do see those sentiments sort of lingering in the background of Brian of the clip that you played where he seemed to be praising the. The cool leaders that had come in against the the Turkish government. You know, that was a government that had taken Turkey and some more religious directions after a more secular history. And so I think that that's part of what was going on here. But indeed, what's mysterious is wants the money came into play how he was more than willing to rally to the side of that government and do their bidding at a series of meetings here in the US, including whereas I said earlier one where there's at least some report coming from former CIA director, Jim Woolsey that he said he came into that meeting late, but the meeting he went to New York City with a couple of Turkish officials. He he really thought that they seem to be discussing some effort to basically, you know, throw this dissident in Pennsylvania into into a bag or something and try to take him out of the country, which struck Wolsey as a bad idea. And he immediately reported it to us officials since he was so concerned about. Marion bay ridge on WNYC with Josh Gerstein, politico. Hi, mary. How are you? Brian. Thank you for taking my call. I was calling just about the issue that you just got to now. In fact, I was very thrilled with Rachel metal show on Monday. And she did say that perhaps judge Sullivan. Walk his statement back too soon in that he was still working to turn over and going to Turkey. Mary. Thank you. So the judge the judge did you know what I'm to Mary's point. And another thing that I was wondering Josh. The judge did make a big deal about Flynn's work for Turkey. But Muller did not charge Flynn with failing to register as an agent for Turkey. All he was charged with offline pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI about Russia. Why was that? Well, you know, this is a way that these criminal cases are sometimes resolved. Maybe it was the case that Flynn wasn't comfortable pleading guilty of that charge where he thought he adds some defenses to it. But during the process while if you look at the actual charge that was filed in the actual charge that Flynn pled guilty to it. Let's just the false statements to the FBI relating to the Russia investigation. There was a broader a statement of facts, and there's usually a lengthier statement of facts in a guilty plea proceeding, and basically both sides have to sign it the prosecutors and the defense and the defendant themselves and the defendant's lawyers, and they say I've read every word of this. Sometimes the judge make some initial every page of it and say that they agree that all these facts are true. And that the government would be able to prove these facts if the case went to trial, and that statement influence case did say that he admitted that he had submitted several inaccurate statements to the. The Justice department about his work for the Turkish government on several different accounts of these were statements that were submitted to this foreign agents registration office where you know, he basically suggested well, maybe my work benefited Turkey. But you know, I certainly didn't have any idea was working for the Turkish government directly the notion was that somehow maybe he was duped by somebody who he thought was independent, but actually was working for the government we've seen this defense initially, Paul Manafort, attempted the same kind of defense against the charges that he was facing before he folded as well. And Flynn basically admitted that those statements that were sent in early twenty seventeen were not accurate, you know, couple of his colleagues as I mentioned earlier, including his business partner in that consulting firm that did this Turkey work were indicted last week by a grand jury in in Virginia and are now facing serious a series of. Felony charges relating to that work that they wide and their registration that they didn't register didn't register register properly properly for that Turkey work, and unless they come to some kind of arrangement. It sounds like at least one of them will be going on trial on those charges and indeed that ended up playing into yesterday's sentencing. Because that's what the judge eventually seemed to suggest Flynn will. Why don't you? Go ahead. If you're going to testify in that case, we'll see how your cooperation with the government is continuing and maybe you'll get more credit for that. And the judge seemed to raise the prospect that that might save Flynn from going to jail because based on the record the judges seen so far. He he seemed to be suggesting that it might be appropriate for Flynn to serve some jail time. Well, that's very clarifying. Because I was wondering why the judge would hammer Flynn on something he wasn't charged with. And I think you just explained it Lou on Staten Island on WNYC. Hi, lou. Good morning. Brian good money to against my my problem or my consent. Hobbies? Of again, roughly, oh, Canada who says three s in armed forces style. As opposed general nationalistic form of some president. And does not know that it's wrong. Where is it? Government. What? Explained. Someone that doesn't know that line is wrong. Josh. Well, I mean, this is one of the arguments that Flynn's defense put forward in the last few days that really seemed to rub. The judge the wrong way up. You know, I think Flint's defense was trying to distinguish his case from a couple other cases that we saw recently oncluding, George popadopoulos who had been a fairly junior foreign policy adviser to the president during that campaign a period and a guy named Alex vendors want who was an attorney who was involved in some manafort's Ukraine related work, both of whom plead guilty to the same charge of lying to the government. But in at least, a Papadopoulos case, the Flynn lawyers were trying to say, hey, you know, popadopoulos was warned that if you lied to the FBI that's a crime. So in other words, you'd better think seriously about what you're saying. And make sure it's accurate, and they were pointing out that Flynn never got that warning. And the whole interview was treated much more casually. I don't think they were trying to say that the that Flynn didn't understand that he might be in trouble. Ally. But more that maybe he wasn't given the opportunity to focus his mind the way some of these other defendants were the judge clearly didn't think much of those arguments, and he basically dressed down Flynn and his defense for bringing it up and at one point Flynn's defense lawyers said, well, please don't blame our client. If we if we mishandle there. So it definitely became a point of contention. And it doesn't seem very credible to think that someone who spent twenty years in the federal government at very high levels would think that it's acceptable or okay to lie to a pair of FBI agents that come in to ask you questions about an ongoing inquiry. Josh Gerstein with us senior Legal Affairs correspondent for politico on the remarkable day in court for Michael Flynn yesterday. And it simply -cations the president is still standing by that argument that he was in trapped. His press secretary sent Sarah Sanders stood by yesterday after the court proceeding. But I wanna get your take on something else. That Sarah Sanders said this is just seven seconds the activities that he has said to and again, we'll let the court make that determination to have engaged in. Don't have anything to do with the president. So now we get to what has to do with the president. Because that's the biggest reason that a lot of people care about Michael Flynn. He was lying to the FBI about talking to the Russian ambassador during the transition after the election. About possibly removing sanctions that the Obama administration had placed on Russia for meddling in the election by hacking. Democratic Party, emails, etc. So that that was the lie that presumably was on behalf. That was what he told Kislyak. And then lied about it to Mike Pence lied about it to the FBI, and that's what he pleaded guilty to. So how does this affect whether Donald Trump my the found either, you know, might be charged by by Robert Muller with something or found to have acted improperly in any way. Sarah Sanders says it doesn't directly relate to the president. Does it? I think it might. It's not really totally clear. Whether it does or doesn't mean Flynn was in contact with other people in the Trump transition at the time he was having these contacts with a Kislyak and others who are working on some of these issues. There was also an an a tense negotiation or standoff going on at the UN relating to Israel during this particular time period where the Trump incoming Trump transition and the current incumbent Obama government were at odds on some issues and Flynn has admitted lying to the FBI about his involvement on that issue as well. So we know that Flynn was engaged with other Trump. Transition officials KT McFarland is so sort of his deputy. She was involved here in some way that is not totally clear. She was being briefed on some of these contacts, and what we're not clear on who else was being briefed. Where people just freelancing was this something Flynn was directing without clearing. With anybody else senior to him where people discussing these things with the president in real time or other people, maybe we're in more direct contact with the president a lot of these questions are left unanswered in the Muller paperwork and the statements from Muller that have come out so far as is this more general question about Flynn's conduct despite the grilling that he took from judge Sullivan yesterday. He was never really grilled about this question. Why did he lie to the FBI agents? You know, what the situation was? So casual why didn't he just tell the truth to them? I mean, if it was if he wasn't concerned about it at all, it seems strange to reflexively lie about several different fairly technical matters. And you do wonder what it is that he thought he was doing and I find it curious that with all the discussions that we had yesterday. We still haven't gotten a straight answer about what that rationale or motivation was on Lind's part for for his lies not only on that..

"ISIS in this ungoverned northern Syrian space that they have control over. And in fact, they are linking up with other forces. Let's say more to the west or look at it look at a map at and you look more to the west the bottom line is they're just controlling a tremendous amount of. Space there that is now the Turkish government concerned as their end goal of the Kurds is to establish this nation, call Kurdistan, and they're getting close to having you know, space and all the things around it. And it looks like now the Turkish government is going to go after some of these enclaves under the guise of going after terrorist groups east of the phrase again that's code for northern western. I'm sorry northern eastern part of Syria. And so the the the Kurds have helped us out on numerous occasions. Correct. You're going back years going back from Iraq back to Desert Storm. Go back to the nineteen eighties. The Kurds have always been on our side. And if you think about it, they are the largest, contiguous type tribe. Let's say of you know, about thirty million forty million individuals out there do occupy four different countries. They occupied Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. Even small part of Armenia, but they don't have a nation state and they buy as a nation state. They have resources they have tremendous military. They've helped us significantly in that part of the world, and they are enemies of the Turkish state who feel that they want a separate state within Turkey and the Turkish government won't let them do that. They're the biggest group in the world that doesn't have their own state. Isn't that correct? So that's exactly right from again from a tribal perspective. So when when when I hear a story that says US backed Kurds to what extent how how how much are we backing up? My Turkey starts jumping ugly with them where we're gonna win the mayor's border. What's going to happen? Well, you know, that's always exactly what ends up happening is the United States will step in at the third dimension from the air. We don't have that many troops mostly advisors that are in the northern part of Syria. Here we are on the western southern border trying to stop land bridge that exists between. Iraq and Syria. So we don't have a lot of troops up there. But we do have some some advisers and monitoring the situation on the ground. The question is what does Turkey roll today role a tank division three hundred tanks? You know, how how do they go after this? Because if they go to look to occupy fully, then I think the world's gotta step up and say what's going on here. What they're going to clean out certain cities in their from their perspective today areas and pockets of resistance that are still part of this seven year, civil war. That's taking place inside Syria that that's one thing. But if they go in let's say full bore with all these acquit and all this all tanks, for example. Then you know, that they're looking to occupy it. I gotta believe that. Behind the scenes diplomatic diplomatic efforts are being made to make sure that at no point did do US forces are planes or whatever come in contact with Turkish, forces or planes, right? And and this is where the people we have on the ground, whether it's through life is they serve as markers as we know where they are from GPS perspective, we can kind of track the monitor them and and can military people look at this as geography, and they look at living to look at to see what the Turks are doing and try to predict where they're gonna go again based on key terrain in areas that that they want to know the Turkish government is going to have that. I think they're important again for their perspective. They can't have this Curtis state to their southern flank southern border. It presents a tremendous risk as Kurds inside of Turkey would wanna come and become part of that. You'd have you know, humanitarian problems and all the things that go with that. Okay. So we'll keep an eye on that area of the world. While got you on the phone just to other things I wanted to ask you about since I. Keep seeing that various groups of people that some Republicans some Democrats. I don't know it's kind of. Interesting bedfellows with this. But really pushing the whole relationship with Saudi Arabia because of the Kalinin kashogi o of kashogi. And we all know that NBS almost certainly ordered it. I don't even doubt that that story. But how big an ally is Saudi Arabia's. That's something we should be messing with and again with a look at this and the long in tooth approach. And part of the problem is the Democrats and the media for my military perspective day, this is all about Obama Obama cuts this deal with uranium that was awful to begin with. He sees the world that you want it to be as opposed to the way it really is. And you know, our our lines. It's always been with Saudi Arabia as an ally. Now, I get it. What happened was awful? I watched the this morning all the fake outrage about what the secretary of state said we're still trying to emergency the water's there. But the bottom line is this in in if we decide to cut Saudi Arabia loose for some whatever reason whatever that means. Got an answer. Either. What we're gonna do we gonna stop buying their oil? We're gonna stop saying literally hundreds of billions of dollars worth of technology and equipment to them. It would be a big mistake. They find it from someplace allow themselves with the Russians and the Chinese which is really how does this poll project and is going right now who's who's kind of states sponsoring you Don going forward basis, and we can't do that with Saudi Arabia. We all saw the high five and big smiles between NBS and Putin a couple of weeks ago. I mean that would be a game changing world history move. If all of a sudden Saudi Arabia was aligned with Russia. It could happen. And that's the thing. We've got to recognize because and for those who think that we should just dismissed that. Because we're going to realize selves with their Indians is just foolhardy because while uranium's clearly have more has history with the United States to have a potential relationship. Go back before nineteen seventy eight seventy nine for the revolution. Iran was fundamentally a western country. And again Obama wants to. In that world again, Iran being the greatest foreign policy failure in the second half of the twentieth century that just doesn't stop there right now. The leadership is not there in order for that to happen inside. It's not going to happen anytime soon. And then finally, and we don't much time. This is a complicated subject. But are we back to square one with North Korea, more or less? Looks like look doesn't look like we've got any progress air. It looks like we're gonna reset start over. This is gonna come back to the president being embarrassment for him. If he doesn't get some progress somewhere as the Intel community just continues to leak out things in North Korea continues to do without recourse without anything going back to the we can blame a little bit South Korea here possibly because they they want it to work to you've got a president there. That's trying to make the world where he wants it to be as opposed to the way. It really is. The question is what happens if they cross some kind of red line here. What's Donald Trump going to North Korea? We surely can't fire missiles in there. Well, that was a hell of a thorny problem. And I it's still a hell of a thorny problem. So and the technology is better now than it was a year ago at some point. Oh, but they're going to demonstrate it. And then we got a real problem. Right. When once this North Korean start doing the things that the president said they haven't been doing because of him. Then it's gonna go south pretty quickly for the president. Well, well, those are three stories that are all fascinating. And I don't know how they're gonna turn out. Mike lines military analysts. Always like your time predate it my great, thanks for having me. We have some breaking news. I actually need the breaking news. Donkey there. Michael..

"Around the world. See folks, I told you. Some guy gets killed a Saudi citizen gets killed in Turkey because of his criticism of Saudi Arabia, and there you just had cable news talker after cable news talker pundit after opponent media, folks, left not left and right. I mean, you know, what I'm saying all over the place not on the right saying the dumbest craziest crap imaginable here. Just straight up going for just straight up saying. Yeah, that's right. You know, maybe you had morning Joe. Who I don't know what he thinks he stands for or what is contribution is. You know, it's like it's like the mean dumb girls have their own table in highschool and morning, Joe is the head of it. Because what are they really saying Jared gave a wink and a nod? He he thinks that he thinks that could ever happen. First of all, the notion that the Saudis would have mentioned this to anyone the US government is is is crazy. That's not a reasonable rational thing to believe or to say, okay, it's crazy. And the the idea that that the Trump administration is in any way, okay. Or or even complicit in this. The charge just keeps shifting, but it's always just some attack on Trump. Right. It's he doesn't do. He hasn't done enough fee. It's only been what is it a week? Now, they're trying to figure out what the heck happened here. What are you gonna trust the Turkish government and their leaks? The Turks have plenty of reasons to lie here. You can't just go on what on Turkey's say. So on this issue. You can't just say, okay. Because because Turkey tells us that they have audio of this. I mean, they're telling terrible details to cut sending cut off his fingers and saw sought him up. I still live pardon me. I know there's young people listen to the show. But these are these are the details of the murder, they're being told to us just a gruesome brutal murder. This isn't they didn't just sneak up behind him with the silence pistol. That'd be terrible enough. This was a torture murder. Of this guy as we're being told by the church now is that really what happened is that? I completely believe that that could have happened. But we would like to see some more proof some more evidence than just anonymous leaks through the media from the church government, which has plenty of reasons to try and stick its thumb in the Saudis, so the Saudis a bunch of thugs. Yeah. Of course, Saudis are bad news is there's no there's no good guys in that whole spat between the Saudis and the Turks and what's going on. There's nobody that we can look at and say, oh, we can trust their word on this one. Now, we've got to verify, but this idea that because Trump calls Jim Acosta, a clown, which note that Obama used to trash Fox News, the one network that provided anything of a voice of opposition at all. Obama used to trash Fox News. On a on a on a regular basis. And no one said anything about it really was the one network that stood against him. And you know, the the they're saying that because Trump is critical of the press because he expresses his opinion about immediate apparatus that is entirely against him. Because of that. He is he is somehow complicit in the murder of this journalists. Journalists have been oppressed and detained and murdered in foreign countries. Furs long-term journalists this is new, but this is all the anything bad that happens in the world is Trump's fault to the left anything bad that happens anywhere in the world of any consequence. You can say it's Trump's fall if they're sexism somewhere Trump's full it. There's racism somewhere. It's Trump's fault. Whatever totalitarianism dictators despots Trump's fall. They skip past the fact that as I said you yesterday. Obama's inaction and dithering and cowardice as commander in chief contributed to a half a million people just chewed up in the meat grinder that was the Syrian civil war horrific violence and Obama was his nowhere to be seen in terms of leadership. Nothing if anything made the situation worse made sure that there were arms that got into the hands of the Jihadism. And that's what happened. So we're we're going to hear from the people that are okay with that about how Trump is an alias. But it's just so typical isn't it? It's just so standard operating procedure from the left, and I got I got to ask Dr Gorka today. Sebastian Gorka was on was on rising to me. I got to ask them say, you know, hold on a second. What do you say Dr g Dr jeez, good guy? What are usually doctor the people that are always talking about Trump? So cozy with dictators. You just just look at the actions look at what he does. I mean, Trump has his way of trying to ingratiate himself. He's trying to do his own high level diplomacy with these foreign heads of state, and this whole standard that they set up these nonsense the standard that Trump has to talk. Super aggressively to everybody and he needs to hold Putin. This is nonsense. This is complete and utter nonsense. But this is what they pretend is the new standard under Trump that he that he should go into meetings with Putin and Kim Jong UN these others and essentially spit in their faces and anything short of that shows that he's a coward. Anything short of that shows that he's a bad guy. They're not operating in good faith. And I think that's really essential. We can't lose sight of that. They're not criticizing this president because they really wanted to do something differently. It's all just an excuse for Trump rage that. Hey trump. That's what this is whether it's foreign policy the economy immigration every criticism of Trump from the left now is infused with this anti-trump rage. You know, they are really the consoles antifa. There should be anti-trump anti-trump seat. I did there. Womp, womp. I I am. So sick of all the grandstanding on this on this kashogi issue. And I also think that people are really overselling overestimating how much of this is our fault and our problem. How much of this is something that we really need to take the lead. And Jalen, what did they think we're going to do? I'm out about it. Yeah. Let's send in the eighty second airborne one hundred first airborne, whoever. Right. Let's send them in you know, until the Saudis turn over the crown prince, you know, we're just gonna sit on their sit on their soil it. No, this is insane. We're not gonna do anything like that. Right. So what are we going to do four? We're not going to prosecute him. Okay. We'll will cut off some arm sales. That's gonna stop them. But I hope that they don't send Mnuchin we'll see we got more coming up..

And I believe had was quoted as apple watch from watch that there was wedding and sending them according to his phone. Hold on one. Second alley. Let's go over that role. Slow because that's a shocker somehow. He he was able to enable his iphone watch to record his own death at the hands of Saudi agents. And did. Recorded. But also, they gave the time specific time and the location of the of the body because they probably forgot to take it on the familiar with it looks like it. They know where to their body was taking I think that's why the troops had waiting. To be to basically. Information. This is absolutely explosive. Thank you better believe it it's explosive. So now, I know the CIA is all over this store. US intelligence is over this story. Congress is all over this story. President Trump is all over this story. Let me just say this. Okay. And there's no getting around this. If the Saudis were behind this. And I think it's pretty obvious. They were and the ruling family was beside this, which I think is pretty obvious that they were I've never liked to Saudi government. I don't like their influence on Capitol Hill. I don't like how they've bought influencing congress in the White House. Whether it be the Obama administration, the Bush administration, the Clinton administration, this is a brutal Islamist regime that treats women like slaves that murders, gays and lesbians that engages in barbaric beheadings that is responsible for the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen in which they are systematically starving. Millions and millions of people in Yemen in their criminal illegal war in that country. This is a nation and a regime that persecutes, and oppress his Christians will not even allow you. If you work in Saudi Arabia to have a cross or crucifix on you or a bible and more imposed more importantly, and most importantly, I believe that the Saudi government and the Saudi Royal family had not only links to. Al Qaeda that has been proven. But I believe that they were responsible ultimately for nine eleven and the death and murder of three thousand Americans. Their regime is soaked in American blood. And if this turns out that day in fact, behave like a bunch of sadistic savages who think they can go around and murder journalists with impunity. Then I think it's time for Saudi Arabia to pay a severe price and the ultimate price should be. It's time for us to cut them loose. And when President Trump recently said that he's going to unveil one of these days who was really behind nine eleven let me tell you who is really talking about Saudi Arabia and the Saudis. I am sick of this regime. Enough is enough. And my question to you is this what should the United States do and Saudi Arabia is it now an enemy of the United States the way, Iran and North Korea and other of these savage regimes are is it time to put Saudi Arabia on our top list of terrorist. Sponsors should they now be deemed a mortal enemy of the United States. Six one seven two six six sixty eight sixty eight your calls next. We got a big weekend of sports around here. Maybe..

Now he was already well on the March to establishing himself as some kind of. Autocrat. I mean, he, he, he legitimately can claim democratic a democratic mantle. He was an enormously popular man. He was a populist any. He stroked the Turkish population. But after that, he really took giant steps into a talk recy-. And one of the things that he did was he he began to make demands of the United States that that no one can. I mean, let's not forget who's the global hegemony, even if it is led by Donald Trump at the moment. And he demanded the extradition of this fellow fed to hula gear Len who leads a kind of sect within Islam and had been an early supporter of air. One of the fell out Gerland lives in exile in Pennsylvania, he demanded his extradition. The American said, no, we don't do that. You can't. We and we won't. So this pastor who was on some. Mission in southern Turkey was detained in his being held as a hostage, almost until Gulan is released. Now, this isn't going to please merica on top of that after the coup there were questions about how sustainable the Turkish econ economic boom was when the political situation seemed to be unstable, even though Ehrmann quickly, he quickly contained the coup he arrested like six thousand people. Everybody, you know, he was college. Professors journalists, half the army's high command all in jail. So there was there was some tremor. So the central Bank opened the floodgates. Stoked, a huge boom and inflation set in and how do you down inflation? We'll classically the central Bank raises interest rates, but the people who would pay the price most for higher interest rates are his supporters. It's the man on the street. And he's a, he's an autocrat, but he's also a true populist and he didn't want to hurt his people. So his son in law who is the secretary. The finance minister. That's the other thing. Financial markets don't like they don't like too much nepotism, it's one thing when you're dealing with the Gulf states because their monarchy. So you expect nepotism, but not necessarily in a secular allegedly democratic society. And so you have this situation where the markets aren't going to like it till interest rates have raised. He's got a bite the bullet and do that. And if he doesn't, I'm talking about early on, then the lira is going to continue to plunge. Well in past when aired one has taken a bold stance. He's had a very hot economy behind him, but it's a different story. Now, James are the comments in reaction. He's made to the lira slide. Is that going to hurt him? He's he's calling the US its NATO partner a backstabber. For instance, it's no canoeing, spas confidence of of internet of international Mockus I don't suppose, but it may may play quite well for him at home in the short term, at least. I mean, it's going to depend upon how much the central Bank can prop up the currency. But as I said, you know, it's lost forty percents of its value this year. Everybody knows. You know, you noticed that quote very quickly and very severely and food prices..
