What Is Roger Stone Doing in New York?
"Back. I'm talking to Roger Stone, roger. I live in New York City, I do not mug people, but I do live in New York City. I think it's overstated about the crime. That's here. We don't need to get into that. All I'm trying to say is, I live here, you rarely visit here. You visited here. I was out of town. I was very upset by that. I wish I got more notice when you're going to be around. But tell us what were you doing in New York and did you say antifa was trying to attack you? So I was invited by the New York young Republican club, which is the oldest, largest and most vibrant and active young Republican club in the country. Former members, governor Thomas E Dewey, attorney general, Herbert brownell, governor Nelson Rockefeller, former vice president, Richard Nixon when he lived all associate members. Verily a John foster dulles an associate member. Very Augusta and storied history. It is a really a vibrant club of young people and they invited me to come in for a martini mixer. This is where I spoke about the history of the martini. I reveal Richard Nixon's own secret recipe for the silver bullet. And then I move behind the bar and with the assistance of three bartenders, I mixed and poured over almost 300 martinis. By the way, The Daily Beast said they were margaritas, just to show you how to actually yeah, they're not big on mixology or theology, but that's the only two things of which they're totally ignorant. But at least call themselves The Daily Beast, so it's right out there in front, you know exactly what they are. I think they're corporate slogan is 6, 6, 6, as a matter of fact. But in any event, so with the way this worked is you bought your ticket on eventbrite. And then roughly an hour before the event, the club would send you an email telling you the location of the event. Otherwise you have an almost guarantee of violence and other protesters. But the location of this event in Little Italy evidently leaked and there were so many bomb threats and death threats to the Italian restaurant where it was going to be held. That they canceled before hours noticed.

Roger Stone Posits Why the Case Against Trump May Be Unraveling
"I want to talk to you about everything. I want to talk to you about what's going on with president Trump. I want to talk to you about desantis. What do you want to talk about first? Well, I think the big news, Eric is what's going on in New York or maybe what isn't going on in New York because I think it's now unclear. It appeared that the Manhattan district attorney that is a county prosecutor was going to take up a case previously reviewed and rejected by 5 hostile federal prosecutors against Donald Trump, which supposedly surrounds theoretical at least payoffs to a porn star for her silence during the 2016 campaign. Donald Trump has already triumphed in a defamation suit centered around these exact same issues. The government's chief witness is a man named Michael Cohen, who has specifically denied that exact allegation he's making today both under oath in the defamation lawsuit and in a letter to the federal election commission signed by his attorneys. So the real question, I guess, would become, was he lying then, or is he lying now? The whole point, of course, is will Alvin Bragg, who is a George Soros funded prosecutor, elevate what even if accurate would be a misdemeanor to a felony in an effort to try to destroy the political prospects of Donald J Trump.

Alvin Bragg and His Bag of Tricks
"Manhattan's DA Manhattan DA Bragg is determined to snooker a grand jury into indicting Trump. Show me the man and I'll show you the crime was the infamous boast of Joseph Stalin's ruthless secret police chief, Lavrentiy Beria. His modus operandi was to target any man the Soviet dictator chose and then find or fabricate a crime against him. Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, has taken a page out of Stalin's playbook and targeted Donald Trump. Driven by personal and political animus, the DA presumed the former president must be guilty of something. It wasn't just a matter of devoting enough time and resources to hunt down the crime. Failing to find one Bragg copied berry is paradigm and simply dreamed one up.

I know, well, you know, he didn't exactly report the fund as the business expense that he should have. I mean, my Friends, there was almost no person in business. No person, let's put it this way. Who earns an income who could not be indicted if somebody, I'm not saying convicted, all brag cares about is a mugshot.

How Alvin Bragg Has Received Funding From George Soros
"Bragg refuses to stop despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. He is a Soros backed animal who just doesn't care about right or wrong no matter how many people are hurt, this is no legal system, this is the Gestapo. This is Russia and China. But worse disgraceful. Everybody knows I'm 100% innocent, including Bragg, but he doesn't care. He's just carrying out the plans of the radical left lunatics. Our country is being destroyed, as they tell us to be peaceful. So mediaite is taking that last line as they tell us to be peaceful as code for don't be peaceful. You see, you see the lunacy here. I mean, come on. But Trump does raise a point. By the way, talking about Soros. Want to explain, I got a text message from somebody yesterday. They said, stars, you need to explain to the peoples. How all of this works with Soros. Because Soros doesn't exist. George Soros did not go up to Alvin Bragg and just give him a check. They funnel this money. They launder this money through these organizations and that's how Bragg got a $1 million from George Soros. But it's not just George Soros, as a matter of fact, the children of George Soros are also giving money or have given money to the district attorney. And we're talking tens of thousands of dollars. That's what we're talking about here. So this is all a political hit job on Donald Trump.

Will Alvin Bragg Try to Arrest Donald Trump at All?
"Don't think this is going to happen that the district attorney Alvin Bragg in New York City is not going to arrest Donald John Trump. I think that he sees the writing on the wall here. Now, yesterday, a letter serviced. That seems to indicate that Donald Trump was not involved in the hush money payment to stormy Daniels. And this letter, it's pretty condemning. And this could be one of the reasons why the grand jury has not been meeting yesterday's proceedings were canceled. Today's proceedings canceled again. There's word that the district attorney may call the grand jury bank for, but not because of Donald Trump. As a matter of fact, the reporting of NBC News says that they may not even address the Trump issue until next Monday. But I think what's happened here is that team Trump has been pretty masterful at playing all of this out. They had heard the rumblings and they got out ahead of the story. But the reality here is that Michael Cohen, in this letter, it's pretty evident that he had everything to do with this and Donald Trump had nothing to do with the hush money payment made to one stormy Daniels.

Manhattan DA rejects GOP demand for info on Trump case
"The district attorney for Manhattan, New York has made clear. He will not be sharing documents surrounding the hush money investigation into Donald Trump with members of Congress. House Republicans had sought documents and testimony about the case. Calling the grand jury investigation into Donald Trump, quote, an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority. In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, the general counsel for Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg slammed the congressional request as an unlawful incursion into New York's sovereignty, adding that Donald Trump's lawyers reportedly urged three House committee chairman to intervene after Trump created a false expectation. He was going to be arrested this week and says that is not a legitimate basis for a congressional inquiry. The 5 page response from Bragg's office marks a public acknowledgment, a grand jury is currently investigating Trump, although there appears to be a pause this week in his case. I'm Jackie Quinn

Report: Trump Wants to Be Handcuffed for Court Appearance
"It's indictment watch. Will he or will he won't be indicted? You know, the severity of this kind of hit me yesterday like a ton of bricks. You ever been arrested, have you ever had handcuffs put on you? Have you ever been fingerprinted? Booked into the detention center? Your mugshot taken? Honest to gosh, I can't imagine the terror that one must feel if that happens. There are reports now that president Trump wants to be handcuffed. And a lot of people are rolling their eyes at that.

Trump lawyer ordered to turn over Mar-a-Lago case documents
"A lawyer for Donald Trump has been ordered to turn over material as prosecutors examine whether the former president or his allies obstructed efforts to recover classified documents that have been stored at Mar-a-Lago. A brief online notice by the D.C. Court of Appeals panel indicates that the attorney has been directed to turn over evidence related to the investigation into the mishandling of classified documents, the case is sealed, but the details appear to correspond with a lower court fight over whether M Evan corcoran could be forced to provide documents or testify in the probe. The Justice Department has been looking into why Trump and his representatives resisted demands to return the classified material, it suggests the appeals court sided with prosecutors, who argue that Trump was using his attorneys to further a crime, corcoran drafted a statement to the DoJ that was signed by another trunk lawyer, Christina bob, asserting that a diligent search for classified documents had been conducted, that claim proved false after FBI agents raided Trump's Florida estate.

Who Is Alvin Bragg?
"We talked about actually, you know what, before I go to this, I want you to hear another audio clip of someone that simply doesn't know the state that we're in. This is the problem with leftists and even liberals sometimes. Whoopi Goldberg on the view. She was a little upset. She was a little bothered that it seemed. You know, people were getting excited that Trump would be arrested. Guys, do you understand this has never happened in American history? Never happened in American history. Now we've got audio from a man that was the attorney of the attorney that's lying for Trump, exculpatory evidence. Meaning evidence that the defense that Trump should have had you got Alvin Bragg hiding this information, this man should be in jail. Frankly, there should be legislation in my opinion. For all prosecutors across the country because I do think at times you get these woke freaking prosecutors are these people that just want to notch another win on their belt where they're just, they're not looking at the rule of law. They're looking at patting themselves on the back, getting accolades and stuff like that. And they can be ruthless and insane. And I'm a guy that's for the rule of law. I love the cops, but sometimes people go crazy. And when this guy, people like Alvin Bragg go crazy and when they hide evidence from the defense, I believe that they victim should be able to sue the prosecutor.

"Prosecutors have revealed that a planned Proud Boys witness was an informant. I'm Lisa dwyer, a lawyer for one of the former Proud Boys leaders charged with seditious conspiracy, says federal prosecutors have revealed that a defense witness was secretly acting as a government informant for nearly two years after the January 6th, 2021 attack on the U.S. capitol. Defense attorney Carmen Hernandez asked a judge to schedule an emergency hearing so the defense can learn more about the prosecutors use of the informant. The judge ordered prosecutors to file a response to the defense filing by Thursday afternoon and scheduled a hearing as well, putting testimony in the case on hold until Friday. Hernandez said the unnamed informant participated in prayer meetings with relatives and had discussions with family members about replacing a defense lawyer on the case.

Are Dems Setting Precedent for Punishing Political Enemies?
"We've laid out here, if you're looking for a crime, the only crime that had been committed, if in fact a crime was committed was a financial misdemeanor. And for that, the district attorney wants to literally handcuff and shackle Donald Trump. Keep in mind, this is a guy who received $1 million from George Soros. This is a man who campaigned on a promise to get Donald Trump. Letitia James, the attorney general of New York. Campaigned on the same promise to get Donald Trump. They have weaponized the judicial system. Look at what's happening in Atlanta, Georgia, where once again you have a George Soros funded district attorney going after president Trump. That one could get very ugly because apparently they're looking at RICO violations. Suggesting that Trump was trying to coerce the Secretary of State and to changing vote totals in the state of Georgia. But really, this is all about stopping Donald Trump and punishing political enemies. And this is why it is incumbent upon every freedom loving American, and even I would appeal to some of you you Democrats out there who still believe in the constitution who still believe in the rule of law, I have to hope and pray there are still some of you out there. And we all need to stand up and say, we're not going to tolerate this. We're not going to allow you to turn our country into some sort of a, of a Soviet style, police state. We're just not going down that path. Am I grave concern is that Republicans are going to return the favor if they ever get back in control of the House and this pardon me of the Senate and The White House? We can not go down this path as a nation. We can not, we can not be jailing our political enemies.

"Know what What should happen is I thought we were on our way to having some of this. Dealt with when the United States Court of Appeals rebuked one of the judges and one of the cases over a bond question, But then they disappeared. And nothing else happened. The only way judges have to talk about matters is through the legal process. They can go out and give speeches and more with the articles and do stuff like that on generic subjects, but they cannot comment. On things like this, because to do so would they have to recuse themselves from any cases that came before them? But what is clear? Is that they have a duty. Because of the oath that they took when they look at cases and they see bond that is out of sight and completely unrelated to the purposes for which bond was intended to do something about it. In individual cases. I have not seen any of that happening. And as far as I can tell the Justice Department in the U. S Attorney's office have committed themselves to being a bit wacky about their enforcement in these cases, and it's very unbecoming. I must say. I am very, very disappointed in DOJ and the U.

"One thing that i can imagine is that the wife may have provided both the healthcare power of attorney and the financial power of attorney and there must have been something that the organization had either in their protocol or their routine whether they were reviewing the terms of the documents or misreading them that somehow they didn't feel that she had authority which strikes me as a very funny thing if she was nominated as the agent under both of those documents. I often say that that Intake workers at healthcare facilities. Don't usually have very good skills as lawyers and the strikes me as Maybe more evidence of that. That i don't know as between the person who you're signing a twenty two page document with at the scalp living skilled nursing facility assisted living facility and the lawyer who drafted it. I'm just going to. I'm going to air on the side of the lawyer. Knowing how much authority the person had and so it might be as simple as working up the chain of command and arguing with the intake worker saying no we really do have a valid power of attorney and and let me get the lawyer on the phone to try to convince you of that. I will tell you that. I know clients have said that but very few of have gotten me on the phone. And that's because i think most often once you say let me get the lawyer on the phone. Suddenly resistance begins to crumble. It's important to read past page one of these documents robert. That's the other thing. It's really important to become familiar with the different provisions in a power of attorney. And i always tell people listen. Let's let's take a moment and really look through these provisions so if you ever needed to rely on one you could say to the person doing an intake at an assisted living facility. Hey here see this provision. It allows me to do this now. One thing that we haven't mentioned robert is that in some healthcare powers powers of attorney. They will include something like a mental health. Care power of attorney that might be a provision that would be used in the event that the principal the person who created the power of attorney is unable to make medical decisions particularly decisions with respect to his or her could be mental health could be care relating to psychiatric care and oftentimes we see assisted living assisted. Living placements ask to see if there's a mental health care power of attorney if in fact the admission would be to a locked unit and that's one of the things i'm wondering in this case robert is if the assisted living facility was saying that the agent needed to show that he that she was nominated under a Mental health power of attorney. That would actually give her the ability to commit somebody to an inpatient evaluation or treatment. Let could be one of the possibilities. Elizabeth and it occurs to me that there's one other possibility we're having to read a little bit into the question but but that's kind of how how we proceed in these cases trying to figure out what the missing data might tell us. And here's another possibility that strikes me it may have been that the power of attorney was what's called a springing power of attorney that power of attorney document itself might have said that daughter only has the authority to handle finances for mother. If mother is incapacitated and in that case i can imagine an intake worker. Saying you don't have any evidence that your mother is incapacitated and therefore your power of attorney has not yet sprung into existence..

I know people have gotten into Kind of trained to being everything's got to be political, but there's a lot of things going on. That are I mean, good diver. Chocolates is closing. Heidi. I mean that that isn't Republican or Democrat that sad. I'm sad to see them to go. It's about the economy. We need to get the economy going, and I'm more focused on things like the economy than I am on. Whether Republicans or Democrats, or good or bad, so We'll be talking economy doing those sorts of things, but I do appreciate your call very much. I've got to get Let me get this cut in here before we run out of time. This is, um Jack Rosenberg, former deputy U. S. Attorney. He's on the left side of the aisle, so he doesn't like Donald Trump. And he was commenting today about holding Donald Trump accountable, which is what some of you people are saying. Sure there are ways to hold people accountable. You can hold them accountable in an election and the president lost it. You can hold them accountable criminally, but none of that excludes an impeachment trial and I completely agree with Neil. It's not this case. What case incited an insurrection. People died because of his words. And it's for the Senate to judge whether or not somebody like that auto ever hold office again. I think the answer to that is obvious He should not. It's one of the two penalties. The Senate can levy the mere fact that he could also be investigated. Were charged by state or federal prosecutors, in no way precludes a new impeachment trial. In my view, Yeah. Listen, um That's a very political statement from Chuck Rosenberg, which I'm not surprised at. But if he was a attorney, U s attorney and was a prosecutor, then he knows that you have to prove Beyond a shadow of a doll. A doubt there. You have to be able to prove That there was a link between what he said on the Ellipse. And what happened on that afternoon. You could go back and say, but he was stirring things up years ago, okay? But the thing that hurts their case. Is that there are many people that have already come forward with evidence that the proud boys and others were very much involved in plotting and planning. For violence at the Capitol on January 6 It wasn't related to what Donald Trump said at that speech on the Ellipse that morning. They already had the plans ready to go from weeks before. So unless they can show a link between Donald Trump And the plans that some of these agitators and anarchists were involved in Planning the violence, then you don't have a case. You say? Well, he said, things that may have inside, but there's also a lot of people that went to came to Washington. And their big trump fans, and they said he said, come to Washington. So they did to go support him. But they they said, we did not go well. We marched up to the capital. We didn't go in. We didn't attack the police. We didn't do any of that. We're just Trump supporters. So that's why I say to try to connect the two Beyond a reasonable doubt. Which is the standard that you and I are.

W F l A short show tomorrow on Lee one hour from 6 to 7, then Lightning pregame at seven and the Lightning game the first game of the season eight and our legal correspondent Felix Vega. Will join me. Just a horrific story, added the Tampa Bay area. Hillsborough County sheriff's deputy killed just one day before he was set. To enjoy his retirement. We're going to tell you all about that and break down the case coming up in a bit, so we've got a lot to get to Our top story this evening. Let me start with the Department of Justice and FBI Update on the insurrection of the U. S Capitol last week. We heard from DOJ an and the FBI for the first time today in an extensive way and Ah, lot of what the officials who spoke of the press conference had to say is really important and it add some context and some detail to what took place on January 6th. And I want to start with acting U. S. Attorney in D. C. Michael Sherwin and his comments that they are looking to charge individuals involved in what happened. It's sedition and conspiracy charges. Take a listen to this. We're looking at significant felony cases tied to sedition and conspiracy. Just yesterday, our office organized a strike force of very senior national security prosecutors and public corruption prosecutors there on Lee marching orders from the ER to build Seditious and conspiracy charges relate to the most heinous acts that occurred in the capital. And these air significant charges that have felonies with a prison terms of 20 up to 20 years. In addition to that we're looking and taking a priority with cases in which weapons were involved and cases in which destructive devices were involved. As people know through news reports there were pipe bombs found outside the capital. The 80 F is working out at Metro Police is working on that FBI's working on that to find that individual or individuals who planted those devices. So, in addition to just those road cases were looking at. We're gonna focus on the most significant charges as a deterrent, because regardless of if it was just a trespassing the capital or someone planted a pipe bomb, you will be charged and you will be found so strong words and and really serious. Charges and The acting U S attorney went into some detail about some of the things that haven't even been released to the public. Yet here's what he had to say on that. As the days go on, there's going to be more social media and people will recognize that in some instances, and PD and Capitol police weren't open handed combat with somebody's persons inside the Capitol, where tear gas was used on the Capitol, police and federal officers and they were also used against some of these riders, so the picture is gonna build. I think there's a lot of misconceptions about what happened within the capital, and it's going to come into a laser focus. I think over the next weeks and days and I think people are gonna be shocked. With some of the agree GIs contact that happened within the capital. Again. There's a lot that we still have to learn about what took place. What we already know is horrific enough. Bob. Things could have been Much, much worse. And He especially talked about at one point the bombs. That were placed at the RNC and the DNC, and we're just lucky they didn't go off. We're lucky that more damage wasn't done on January 6 because The perpetrators of all of this the insurrectionists. They were certainly looking To do much more. And this investigation is very widespread. Here's what the again Acting U. S. Attorney of D. C. Had to say about the scope of the investigation. This in terms of the conduct related to planning those, you know, pipe bombs the you know the mention of domestic terrorism. I mentioned this before. I don't like this tyranny of labels, saying an act of domestic terrorism We have plenty of federal resource is at our disposal Plenty federal charges to address all of this conduct from felony murder related to the possession and use of destructive devices to seditious conspiracy, you know, under the federal code that has significant penalties and as mentioned with this strike force that was established to focus strictly on sedition charges. We're looking at in treating this just like a significant international counterterrorism or counterintelligence operation. We're looking at everything money travel records. Looking at disposition movement communication records, So no resource related to the FBI or the U. S attorney's office will will be unchecked in terms of trying to determine exactly if there was a command and control how it operated and how they executed these of these activities. And then going into all the different types of crimes that occurred during the insurrection of the capital. It's a long list. Here's what the acting U. S attorney had to say about that. We're looking at everything from simple trespass to theft of mail to theft of digital devices with inside the Capitol to assault on local officers, federal officers both outside and inside the Capitol. To the theft of potential national security information or national defense, information to felony murder and even civil rights. Excessive force investigation, So just the gamut Of cases and criminal conduct We're looking at is really mind blowing mind blowing Mind blowing Central for national security information. Have been taken from the capital. And On this show. If you listen on a consistent basis, you know that. I think it's necessary. I criticize the media. All the media, not just the mainstream media. Right wing media. Whatever media I think is doing a disservice. To their audience. I've called out on the show. Why we have seen the focus on the media the anger towards the media taken to another level over the past couple of years with this enemy, the people stuff. And that had an effect. And it showed on January 6 Here's with the acting U S attorney had to say. About that. We set up a strike force to focus on assault on the media. Some people aren't familiar that some of those riders specifically targeted members of the media and assaulted them. So we have assigned specific prosecutors in our office to focus on those cases as well. You want to talk about the First Amendment Well, That's attack on the free press. And you can dislike the press all you want. Back to the matter is press is constitutionally protected in this country. And if you care about the constitution, then that what was just described can't happen. Very serious. And For whatever reason. Tribalism. I don't know. People continue to try to minimize What took place a week ago. And there are all of these comparisons that I see people making. Not everything is an apples to apples comparison. What took place during the summer 2020 in this country with the violence and the writing and the looting, and all of that was disgraceful. Said it at the time I called out the people doing it. I called out the people who were enabling it who are making excuses for it. But the underlying circumstances were different in that matters. That was in response. Two..

"Now local and federal law enforcement are scrambling to find and arrest people involved in yesterday's riots. The Justice Department briefed reporters this afternoon and NPR's Brian Mann joins us now to talk about that. Hey, Brian, hey. Also Okay, so so far. How has the Justice Department responded to everything that happened yesterday? Yeah. What they said today all says that there's really a full court press of federal law enforcement. Michael. Sure, one who's the acting U. S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, said more than 50 federal cases are already active now, including eight arrests involving firearms charges. He said. One man was arrested with what he described as the military semiautomatic rifle as well as 11. Molotov cocktails. Sure, when described yesterday is a very dangerous situation, and they're also of course, investigating the placement of those pipe bombs that were found outside the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic National headquarters. And do we know yet how well organized All of these riots were like whether it involved militia groups or any other groups. Yeah, we know from our NPR reporters who were on the ground that the proud boys and other groups were present. What Sure win said today is that it's still unclear whether this riot had what he called command and control. Hey says. If this investigation find some kind of orchestration, there could be conspiracy charges, he said. They plan to prosecute all crimes here to the maximum extent. He said that Could involve possible charges of insurrection. I should say so far, most of these charges involved fairly minor crimes, things like trespassing and curfew violations. One interesting thing looking at all these arrest records today. Ah, lot of these writers appeared to have been older. NPR's examination of arrest, records show. The average age was 40 years old. So appears a lot of seniors in this pro trump crowd who were contributing to this violence. Well, one thing I'm curious about is a lot of people are asking Why. Why were there so few arrests? This was a huge crowd. People were caught on video vandalizing the capital in some cases, assaulting police officers. Why aren't more people in custody right now? Yeah, I talked about this today with one of the senior federal law enforcement officials involved in this investigation. NPR agreed not to use his name so he could His candid views about the response here, and he sounded really angry about this, he said. They told NPR that Capitol police who have the primary job of defending the building on lawmakers, he said they had the opportunity to arrest some of the writers and didn't we've reached out to Capitol police to ask about that? We haven't heard back. And so now all these law enforcement agencies are forced to play catch up there using social media, other video recordings to try to catch people who may have committed crimes Chief Robert Conti, who heads the local Metro D. C. Police department, talked about this today. We still have a significant amount of work ahead of us to identify and hold each and everyone of the violent mob accountable for their actions. We have collected numerous images of persons of interest that we are asking the community to help us identify. And Conte said also that do the day to day They've been sweeping local hotels and other places around the city, trying to identify suspects who may still be in the Washington D. C area and and real quick Do. We have a sense yet for how long enforcement and security agencies allowed all of this rioting to spin out of control? Ton of soul searching and finger pointing already underway about this a lot of questions for Capitol police in particular, and today, DC's mayor Morial Bowser called for a major investigation. When she spoke to reporters, so big questions being asked about that, but no clear answers yet that is NPR's Brian Mann. Thank you, Brian. Thank you Also Facebook said today it will continue to block President Trump's account to ensure a peaceful transition. The platform will not let Trump post again until he leaves office and possibly longer. That's the biggest and latest move from social media companies after the riot that took over the U. S. Capitol.

Yeah, So Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and a public post said that he believes in politicians having the freedom to speak on Facebook, even when it's controversial, But Trump's rhetoric is now creating real world violence. And he pointed, of course to the mob. Storming the U. S Capitol yesterday and said quote we believe the risks of allowing the president to continue to use. Our service during this period are simply too great. And so Trump will be banned on Facebook, at least until President elect Joe Biden is sworn in. Now, people like Emerson Brooking have been studying how Trump has been using Facebook for years. Brooking is at the think tank Atlantic Council and here's his take. It's incredible that it took an attempted insurrection for Facebook to take this seriously the rhetoric that Trump has been spreading and the way he's used his platform. Especially these last few crucial months. Considering that the president is a public figure is the head of state. Can Facebook do this? Yeah. In short, yes. So by law, Facebook actually has all the power and deciding what's on the site. Whether it's you know, your grandma posting something or President Trump that said Facebook and Twitter are basically modern day public squares, You know, free speech, at least the spirit of free speech really flourishes on Facebook and Twitter. On Dhere. Facebook is censoring Trump. But Zuckerberg says on balance, trying tow limit additional mayhem across the country is more important than giving Trump a platform. For a time, Twitter seemed to be the president's preferred method to get his message across. What's that company doing? Yes. So yesterday Twitter force Trump to take down the repos that we're glorifying violence and peddling false election claims. Twitter also locked Trump's account and this Adi is a huge moment. I mean, in the months leading up to the election, Twitter placed dozens of these warning labels on his tweets, and critics said that wasn't enough. Twitter is finally now bringing down the hammer. Trump is expected to get his Twitter account back. But if he keeps abusing the rules, Twitter says, Trump will be banned forever. What are the other options for the president in terms of places online to reach his supporters? Yeah, There are smaller platforms like Gabby and parlor where speech of any kind just runs wild without any policing, and Trump may make a big push there. Brooking from the Atlantic Council, says Trump, Being banned on Facebook doesn't mean conspiracy theories are just gonna vanish from the Internet. But it is going to demonstrably reduce the spread of distant misinformation. Because Trump has been that critical link, which sees these theories go from being a localized to mainstreamed. Yes. So what Brookings is saying is when he and other researchers really trace exactly how conspiracy theories about the Corona virus or about the election go viral, the digital trail, Adi often leads directly to Trump's own Facebook and Twitter accounts, so a ban on Facebook will have a big effect and if he's banned on Twitter, too That's gonna have major.
