Biden Endorses Ending Filibuster to Codify Abortion Rights

"President Biden says he'd back an exception to Senate rules if that's what it takes to pass a bill protecting abortion rights as he blasts the Supreme Court's decision to overturn roe V wade as destabilizing The president says the solution is for Congress to codify rose protections in an evenly split Senate that would likely require changing the rules that now let any member block a bill unless it has 60 votes The president's pitching one Requiring exception in the filibuster It's an election year shift as the president tries to rally voters outraged by the ruling to boost democratic

Mark Walters: Latest Gun Reform Will Do Nothing to Stop Crime

"And I see so many conservatives back down on this issue, hence 14 or 15 GOP senators, Mark Walters, your comment. Yeah, now you're talking about the quote unquote gun control bill that came out of the Senate. Ironic that we saw that bill passed within two days of the release of the New York case. What this did, why people are so upset about this. Why people in my circles are so upset about this gun rights activists is because we had senators in the Republican Party, corn and in particular and McConnell in particular who have now cracked the door open because and I want to put it in perspective for listeners without getting too complicated. I want to make this as simple as possible to understand because it really is basic. What you have here is not benign. It's not not sweeping gun control legislation. It is very sweeping because we have in here the red flag. Now it's not a federal red flag. It's a bribe to the states to incentivize the states by feeding them money to institute red flags, which are unconstitutional on their surface because in the United States, we do not make accusations against people and then take their things from them without due process of law. We can not add due process to a process that is unconstitutional to begin with. I hope that makes sense. Now, why did Murphy, who I believe pulled a brilliant political maneuver here, the Democrats did when they began quote unquote negotiating with Republicans about this bill, why did they pull off the two things they wanted were at the top of their wish list. A ban of firearms ownership under 21 and a quote unquote, assault weapons ban using their phrase liberally just because that's the way they phrased it in the media. So everybody understands what we're talking about. Why did they back off of those? Because these individuals know that this bill will do absolutely nothing.

"With us right now is Mike Davis formerly chief counsel for nominations for the U.S. Senate committee on the judiciary and a law clerk formerly and also helped justice Gorsuch, get on the U.S. Supreme Court, Mike, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me, Charlie. I always love when you do our interviews, you have that beautiful picture behind you. It's just, it's incredible. So Washington crossing the Delaware if I'm not mistaken. It is, yeah, and I've big, big, big admirer of that painting and what it actually means. So Mike ten years ago, I got my start in politics and I was pro life then as I am now, but I was told by people that roe versus wade would never be overturned. Ten years ago, justice Scalia was lamenting that the court had gone off the rails. What happened in a decade, where we went from a court that was insane and dominated by Sotomayor and Kagan and upheld ObamaCare is merely a tax, even though we know simply that that was an insane decision. We're ten years later, we now have restored constitutional sanity. What do you attribute the success to? I attributed this success to president Donald J Trump and Senate Republicans. President Trump in 2016 won an upset victory against Hillary Clinton in big part because he promised he would appoint constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices and federal judges who would follow the law instead of rewrite the law and what we saw with this Dobbs decision coming out was the culmination of that. It was because president Trump transformed the 5 to four John Roberts court to the 5 to four clarence Thomas court with the appointments of justices, Gorsuch, my former boss, justice Kavanaugh, who I helped lead through the Senate confirmation and then justice Amy Coney Barrett. So it is a fundamental transformation of the federal judiciary back to its constitutionalist origins, what is supposed to be before the liberals hijack the Supreme Court nearly 90 years

Pete Hegseth and Doug Discuss Confronting the Local School Board

"The things that bothers me the most in our political conservatives, I think we're we get isolated on thinking top thinker. And I say this in this way. We're oscillating on the president, the Senate, the U.S. Congress, maybe a governor, but we fail to see that in our, even in our local communities where we just don't want to think these things are going on. It's the local school boards. You know, if you talk about this, because there'll be some who can't make that option. But what they can do and we've seen over the past year and I've heard you talk about this as well is confront the local school boards. And understand that at the same time moving the children giving that ability to turn. But I've been very disappointed at conservatives. Republicans in particular. There are areas of criminal justice reform, education reform. We as conservatives don't feel like, I mean, what it looks like. I hear other members of Congress and others, they don't all, yeah, I'm for school choice, but I don't want to lead it. I'm for this, but it's like, when did anybody it's almost like we've lost our willingness to realize our history of the buckleys and others that you go out and you confront as an intellectual superiority, the conservative movement. Well, you're precisely right. We have the principles, but they have the positions. And so we think by voting every two or four years, we're going to vote our way out of this problem. And the book thoroughly disavows the reader that this is an effective strategy. It's exactly how we got where we are. And yes, running for school board is a part of the solution. If you don't have an alternative or your lifestyle doesn't provide an option to homeschool or find a classical Christian school, and they are in that public school, then you better be all over it. Or run for those positions to oversee it. But don't go there to be a placeholder and think you're just going to vote and solve everything. You got to be aggressive. You got to be an activist. You have to be involved.

Will We See More Violence From the Pro-Abortion Crowd?

"Do you think that we are going to see continued violence? Are you seeing any evidence of this yet? I pray not violence is not the answer. I agree. And Joe Biden did say the right thing. Does Joe Biden mean it? I hope he does, but Joe Biden has called for the protest to be peaceful. I think the Democrats, at least some of the smarter ones in their ranks, have learned that one of the reasons why they suffered so greatly in House and Senate elections is because the summer of riots and their almost entertaining of them. In 2020. So Joe Biden is saying the right thing, play cut one 18. To keep all protest peaceful, peaceful, peaceful, peaceful, no intimidation, violence is never acceptable. Threats and Tim and threats and intimidation are not acceptable. Let's then go to cut one 27, say girl calling for, burning it all down and lighting it on fire. She is an abortion activist. Well known one. Her name is Danielle Burnett. Play cut one 27. So I'm just convinced we need to burn it all down because at this point I don't know what else we're supposed to do. I'm advocating for violence. I am advocating for violence because there are people that are doing a really bad job, but the problem with the job is, even though they're doing such a bad job, they do this job until they die. So we're just supposed to sit back and let these people do a really bad job and have really seriously negative consequences. On millions of people and we're supposed to do what? Sit on the sidelines? Light it on fire. I'm gonna, we're lighting it up. She wants to light it all fire on fire and she says this is a call to violence. So there is no way she could possibly say that this was metaphorical.

It should be the head of the Department of Homeland insecurity, correct? Absolutely, because under his leadership, this country is less safe, less secure. Yeah. And in the last 16 months, it has just been an escalation in terms of open borders, giving illegal immigrants, safe passage. Is there anything one action that they've done that actually improves the situation on the border, Tom? No. No, and we got the first secretary of Homeland Security. I've ever seen this complicit in cross border crime. Look, everything he has done. He's been in power 1617 months. And now we keep climbing and climbing and climbing. He tells the Senate during a sitting here, but we got a plan, the plan is coming together. Unless his plan is open borders, which he's proven, that's what it really is. He has no enforcement plan. He has done a single thing to slow the flow. And look, we sued him, said we sued him to put title 42 back in place, and we won. We sued him and I say we because I actually filed after David. I know. And we assumed the title of 42, we suited for remaining Mexico. We won both a federal court said you must reinstate both.

The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk, as chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as vice president now as president of the United States, I've studied this case carefully. I've overseen more Supreme Court confirmations than anyone today. In this case was always discussed, I believe roe V wade was the correct decision. As a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty and matters of family and personal autonomy. It was a decision on a complex matter to a careful balance between a woman's right to choose earlier in her pregnancy and the state's ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A decision with broad national consensus, the most Americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable that had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of Americans today. And it was a constitutional principle of justice.

Watergate Lawyer Jill Wine-Banks on How Nixon Impacts Trump

"I thought it was interesting. You tweeted if Nixon had been indicted, it would have sent a message to future wrongdoers in office and created a precedent. It also would have been the right thing to do based on the overwhelming evidence of the facts. One of the things I thought was so interesting, I'd forgotten Jill in watching gaslit is that one of the major reasons cited why Jerry Ford didn't win election is because he pardoned Nixon. Oh, yeah. Exactly. And it certainly was a reason I campaigned against him. In part, it's the wrong thing to do when you have clear culpability. You need to hold people accountable. And our failure to do that in a meaningful way, even though there was a legitimate impeachment going on and he would have been impeached but for partly because your father's running mate went to The White House and said, if you don't resign, you will be convicted in the Senate. Yeah. So it was obvious that there was an alternative remedy then, but the message obviously hasn't gotten through to Donald Trump in the same way that he's committed charitable wrongdoing before. He was fined $2 million after raising 3 million, which means he came out a net profit of 1 million. Right. And that's not enough. So now he's raised 250 million in a ripoff based on the big lie. And, you know, if the penalty isn't in excess of 250 million, then it isn't a penalty at

The More Sinister Aspects of the Current Gun Bill

"We get into the real issue that I'm having with this, again, everything that I've said so far, you can have legitimate political debate on and should have. You're not going to have it in three days. I'm going to tell you that right now. If you're trying to push this through, legitimate debate about even the issues I've just talked about are not going to happen. Now, what I have found in this is the discussion of where I believe the more sinister aspects of this bill from attacking lawful gun owners is actually found. And this is where we will see it. The first one is changing the definition of gun dealer. Let me go back here for just a second. And I'm trying to delay this out very consistently. We always hear this term universal background check. We need a universal background check. What as I have explained in the last podcast, what I talked about it before in my radio show is that when you say universal background check, here's what you need to understand. That is private sale background checks. In other words, that what they're saying is, is that I need if I was selling a gun to my son or maybe not in family depending on how some of the laws were written. But if I wanted to sell one of my guns to a neighbor. They're wanting to say that I have to have a back. I have to go get a, I have to be responsible for a background check. I have to get that background check and I have to go through all the hoops is if I was an actual gun dealer. Now, some of you may like that, some of you might not. Here's the problem with that. The only way to keep up with that and the only way to make sure that that is actually happening and done is you have to register the firearm. And this is actually been stated on gun control websites that is the only way that you can actually do this to make sure that you're keeping track of the proper gun that is being sold. So for those of you out here concerned about a national registry, this is where that comes in with universal background checks.

The Gun Legislation Currently Being Fast Tracked in the US Senate

"Happened. They drop this bill earlier this week on a Wednesday by Friday. Today, when you hear this, the Senate is probably going to be voting on it to try and get it to the house. They voted on it with less than an hour to read the text. They voted on it with less than on Wednesday to push this forward. I'll choose the evening to push this forward. Again, there's just so many things wrong here because nobody is asking questions. I think that are going to come back to either be vague, not work, or be overreaching, and then they're going to have issues with it. So what is actually happening here? Chris Murphy from Connecticut, Texas, senator John cornyn. Here are the basics. And then we're going to talk about why some of these may are probably going to be problematic in future. Number one is enhanced background check for people 18 to 21. It keeps in place the current background check from 1821 within three days, but it would also require the Nick system. This is a national instant criminal background check system to check state records to identify individuals with juvenile records that would disqualify them from purchasing firearms. Now, many times if there is a violent crime or a murder, especially in a juvenile last 16, 78, this is going to be tried as an adult. It's going to show up on records to start with. Again, what they're looking for here and opening up these juvenile records is really the part that it's going to be more concerning here. Now, they did put a sunset on this, which I thought was very interesting. They put an enhanced background check requirement for buyers for 18, 21. They would expire September 30, 20, 32. And so a future Congress is going to have to expand this. The scrutiny between 18 and 21. Remember, right now, handguns, they can't buy 18 year olds that can buy long rifles. They didn't ban them for 18 year olds. But again, we're applying a different level of scrutiny than we do for anything else for an 18 year old, 18 year olds can be tried in adult court, 18 year olds can be sued, 18 year olds can be entered into lawful mining contracts as an adult, 18 year olds can go into the military. I mean, again, a lot of issues here and the issue that was coming about is saying that we need because of these events, the buffalo and the tags event. This will

"Of the U. S. Senate today no matter the intention words carrying the apparent threat of violence can have horrific unintended consequences that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell criticizing Chuck Schumer the Senate's top Democrat over remarks you were made yesterday in front of the Supreme Court about two justices appointed by president trump Schumer's comments about justices Cavanaugh and course such also drew a rare rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg is here to explain how Nina hi where's the story begin well I really started with president trump tweeting attacks on the judge in the Roger stone case and even the jury forewoman and then he tweeted that Supreme Court justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor your liberal justices should recuse themselves from all trump related cases before the Supreme Court because he claimed they are biased against him then what happened yesterday well yesterday the Supreme Court was hearing this huge abortion case in which the court is being asked to either start down the road to reversing roe versus Wade or to stick to its abortion precedents and then senator Schumer was out on the sidewalk addressing a large and pretty rockets group of Russian rights activists his constituents big time for the coming election and he said this I want to tell you gore's arch I want to tell you Cavanaugh you will lead the way and and you will pay a price increase Joseph Campana said something similar to that two Democrats during his confirmation hearing but Schumer's words prompted a rare and stunning rebuke from Chief Justice Roberts who called the remarks not only inappropriate but dangerous and today Schumer made sort of a semi apology now I should not have used the words I used yesterday they didn't come out the way I intended to but in no way was I making a threat I'm from Brooklyn we speak in strong language he said the chief justice's comment was rare and stunning how unusual is it it's very unusual he chastised trump once in twenty eighteen but you know we've never had a president who keeps attacking both the lower courts and the Supreme Court in tweets and press conferences and the problem here for the Chief Justice is that he reviewed Schumer but he didn't say anything when trump attacked too liberal and female justices just days ago any idea why Roberts didn't speak then you know this sort of points out the very difficult position he finds himself and he keeps giving speeches in which he talks about the courts as non political at the same time that Mitch McConnell and trump crow all the time about stacking the courts with true conservative believers this is a message that the Chief Justice wants to convey he's a judge but he doesn't have political advisors and on the two major occasions when he's popped off like this I think that and this is me talking that he basically just got mad so in twenty eighteen he chastised trump and then yesterday there was this very fraught abortion case it was very contentious in the arguments and Roberts finds out about the Schumer remarks and he issues a statement without mentioning trump's remarks about Ginsburg and Sotomayor and there's nobody at the court I think you would say you know Hey chief you need to add that otherwise you're going to run into trouble nobody to warn him this year in four years ago the High Court were big issues in the presidential race the court itself usually tries to stay out of politics do you think that's changing I don't think that they want to be in politics it doesn't seem to turn out well for the Chief Justice when he tries to intervene in some way because among other things in the end he doesn't get the last word he just gets dragged down into the political mark when he rebuked trump in twenty eighteen trump tweeted back basically no Chief Justice nanny nanny boo boo you're wrong trump tweeted nanny nanny boo boo now I've since I've been I mean anybody who's seen it all right and the court does end up being politicized whether the Chief Justice likes that or not NPR's legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg thank you thank you the US response to corona virus has been hobbled by a lack of testing so federal officials are now allowing certain laboratories to provide their own tests for the virus and here's John Hamilton visited one of those labs it's in Seattle at the center of the country's worst outbreak it's been a busy week at the virology lab run by the university.

"The U. S. Senate his work the U. S. political campaign the the the other U. S. entities and number two why was it in a footnote rather than written in big red magic marker in block letters across every page of the thing nobody's gonna miss a page long footnote in regular type okay of not not even busy for the federal judges and that's the other thing look these are federal judges for goodness sake they know how to evaluate wire tap applications they've been doing it in their regular jobs before they get to the FISA court with title three applications and then they've been on the court for a while these are serious serious judges and they have a highly qualified professional staff of lawyers who work only for the court to review all these things and there's a constant dialogue back and forth on this particular application what conversations exactly took place between the FISA court the judges themselves the legal advisors the department justice the FBI I don't remember I wasn't privy to all those communications but my assessment was that the information set forth in that gigantic footnote was consistent with the type of information and the way we would phrase things to basically effectively be the red light on top of the on top of the document like Hey court pay attention to this there are issues here we we think you need to know about these things my view was and I I we have a and I'm well aware of this the department attorneys have a have the highest duty of candor to the FISA court that exists in law is an ex party proceeding and we have the obligation to tell the court every material fact with respect to the application and so I wanted to make sure that was done I thought that this was sufficient to put the court on notice and I don't know what else to say you previously said that you think it's possible that the federal bureau of investigation improperly spied on the trump campaign I assume that's a reference to the fight so worn for Carter page is that what you have in mind or there are other circumstances that you've got a might there one of things I want to look at their people many people seem to assume that the only intelligence collection that occurred was the a single confidential informant and a FISA warrant I'd like to find out whether that is in fact true it strikes me as a fairly and knee make effort if that was the counter intelligence effort designed to stop the threat as it's being represented whose cover page under surveillance at and during his time working for the trump campaign which was it roughly January twenty sixteen to September twenty sixteen I don't know was any other trump campaign official under surveillance during that time period your knowledge world these are the things that I I need to to look at and I have to say that as I said before you know the extent that there was any over reach I believe it was some a few people in the in the upper echelons of of the bureau and and perhaps the department but those people are no longer there why not open this vegetable investigation what's the harm you said intrusive means so what what is your concern about the fact that they did this sure is this from day one remember they say okay we're not going to go to talk to the campaign we're going to put people in there while I was a mop and have these conversations with people involved in the campaign because that way we'll get to truth from the very first day of this investigation which was July thirty first two thousand sixteen all the way to which end in September two thousand seventeen there was not one incriminatory bit of evidence to come in it was for all exculpatory the people that they were tapings denied any involvement with Russia did not very specific facts that the FBI was was relying on so what happens the FBI ignores it presses ahead with holes that information from the court with holes critical exculpatory information from the court well it gets a quick tronic surveillance warrants it also with holes from the court evidence that the dossier that they ultimately relied on to get the fires of war it was a complete sham I mean those words that we just heard from the Attorney General are devastating now remember the inspector general that would be Michael Horowitz is he had the purview only of the DOJ and the FBI and any could not go outside of or beyond that but now the recognition yeah it really all happened another words yeah what Hannity was same for three years and a few other people and they have a new NASA and the freedom caucus guys on covered and our ensemble team we were all dead on accurate everything from the espionage act bleach bit obstruction of justice the dirty Russian dot CA used as the as the bulk of information in the FISA warrants unverifiable the warnings about it I'm being unverifiable premeditated fraud on a FISA court spying on an individual Carter page the nine him is civil liberties as constitutional protections back during his his his connection to the trump campaign to spy on a presidential candidate later transition team and then a presidency and that's only one of what is multiple ways that spying occurred and more of which were going to get the details of in the months ahead when we get the dorm investigation complete and we get the bar report and this time I would expect that there's going to be indictments if there's any equal application of our laws and equal justice under the law that that's got to happen I know it take a little break here from all of our impeachment coverage but this this matters this matters a lot and former trump campaign adviser Carter page filed a lawsuit in federal court against the DNC and the law firm Perkins co in their partners that are tied to funding this unverifiable dossier that served as the basis for all of this surveillance warrants against him and then also Donald Trump candidate transition team and president he filed the court in US District Court in the Northern District of Illinois their Eastern Division he did it early yesterday morning described by his attorneys as the first of multiple actions in the wake of historic foreign intelligence surveillance act abuse and the department of justice has admitted that this is all true now now it's just a matter of how deep we go into this the first step to ensure that this the the the weaponization if you will of of the powerful tools of intelligence we entrust ninety nine percent of the people I've ice say it all the time are good people we need great intelligence for the safety and security of this country if we have to remove Faiza it ends up hurting the country creating vulnerabilities we otherwise we would not need to have but if the top brass though the one percent weaponize this as they clearly have then it puts all of our civil liberties in jeopardy our constitutional rights in jeopardy now with the attorneys for Carter page saying this is the first salvo we're going to follow the evidence wherever it leads the matter how high the rule of law will prevail now this up first defamation suit against the parties in October twenty eighteen in the federal court of Oklahoma but the suit was dismissed after the judge ruled that the court lacked jurisdiction okay well now they have jurisdiction anyway this is a huge development this will turn into something that will shock the conscience and soul of the country I've been saying that too because now we have we have complete vindication everything we reported was right unfortunately of Carter page had to live through this and he joins us now for an update well first of all good for you I've suggested in past interviews you do this I think it's not only fair for you personally but I do believe that it's an important first step if we're ever going to stop this from ever happening again Sean well first of all I I as you say this is what you've been an encouraging me to do for a long time and I I think more than just encouraging I I wanna I'm gonna start by saying when I when I told my family that that I'm gonna be on with you on the on the air they were really looking for dad to hearing the hearing you as they as they always deal but they they they asked me to take that take the opportunity to say that you know current for almost three years you you Sean Hannity have been the cage quote the page family beacon of hope and you know we had talked previously about a you know you're getting out Pulitzer Prize or something yeah any time anyone the only ones again Pulitzer prizes are people that report false news like that they are times Washington post you know you know what those Carter honestly at the I I you're very nice to say all that we had an ensemble team if I ever want to go anywhere I would say it is my radio and television staff the people behind the scenes it is the ensemble cast we put that everyone of us digging behind the scenes it is though though those congressmen arm I will tell you though the only if I take any satisfaction in the vindication of the mob has been dead wrong every single time as I predicted and and if I take any satisfaction is that I did my job properly for my audience and I yeah I'm like a dog on a bone I will admit it when I do again I did again and I knew I was right and our our sources were numerous and impeccable an unimpeachable and I will tell you it is I take satisfaction knowing that my audience was told the truth the other audiences of all the other fake news groups was not told the truth well you're absolutely right and it goes so far beyond use yeah you are absolutely a stalwart but on top of that you know the other point that my family made is they should they should actually give you a Nobel Peace Prize for all you've done for our country and and actually I really think that also with a similar to your time this year because of the you know Nobel Prize that has a a checkered past some people that out let's see if they might not have deserved it so much speaking of Illinois yeah you wonder what's interesting and just as a side note here you realize in this Ukrainian impeachment sham which we know now is going to end we know how it ends do you know that the evening news cast according to news busters was a hundred percent negative on the trump the fence which was amazing and ninety five percent positive for the congenital liar who's compromised that's how sick the mob in the media is the ones that were pushing the Russia hopes and ignoring your story or ignoring even today I'm very I'm I I couldn't be happier today for general Flynn but is now the department of justice back down from seeking jail time on him thank god or god wow awesome I I just did I've been I've been so deep in this cycle this important case that I I I haven't had a chance to catch up on that essential case so it's that is really terrific yes I look forward to hearing you gonna take this our audience you know you know the sad part for you is lawsuits take for ever this is now going to be a decade of your life when it's all said and done yeah well since John this is really you know it's it's a rebuilding process for and our entire country you say that but you know it's it's as you just said in terms of Ukraine hoax after the Russian hoax which is all you know this current civil action I stems from the eighty eight it is going to be a rebuilding process what what president trump and his administration and all Americans have gone through over the last several years is she has just been tragic and it's it's Valerie building period as we start to move beyond this and try to get some justice so inside.

S. entities and number two why was it in a footnote rather than written in big red magic marker in block letters across every page of the thing nobody's gonna miss a page long footnote in regular type okay of not not even busy for the federal judges and that's the other thing look these are federal judges for goodness sake they know how to evaluate wire tap applications they've been doing it in their regular jobs before they get to the FISA court with title three applications and then they've been on the court for awhile these are serious serious judges and they have a highly qualified professional staff of lawyers who work only for the court to review all these things and there's a constant dialogue back and forth on this particular application what conversations exactly took place between the FISA court the judges themselves the legal advisors the department justice the FBI I don't remember I wasn't privy to all those communications but my assessment was that the information set forth in that gigantic footnote was consistent with the type of information and the way we would phrase things to basically effectively be the red light on top of the on top of that a document like Hey court pay attention to this there are issues here we we think you need to know about these things my view was and I I we have a and I'm well aware of this the department attorneys have a have the highest duty of candor to the FISA court that exists in law is an ex party proceeding and we have the obligation to tell the court every material fact with respect to the application and so I wanted to make sure that was done I thought that this was sufficient to put the court on notice and I don't know what else to say eve previously said that you think it's possible that the federal bureau of investigation improperly spied on the trump campaign I assume that's a reference to the fight so warrant for Carter page is is that what you have in mind there are other circumstances that you've got a mind there one of things I want to look at their people many people seem to assume that the only intelligence collection that occurred was the a single confidential informant and a FISA warrant I'd like to find out whether that is in fact true it strikes me as a fairly in NY make effort if that was the counter intelligence effort designed to stop the threat as it's being represented was cover page under surveillance at and during his time working for the trump campaign which was it roughly January twenty sixteen to September twenty sixteen I don't know was any other trump campaign official under surveillance during that time period your knowledge world these are the things that I I need to to look at and I have to say that as I said before you know the extent that there was any over reach I believe it was a some a few people in the in the upper echelons of of the bureau and and perhaps the department but those people are no longer there why not open this is face to go full investigation what's the harm you said intrusive means so what what is your concern about the fact that they did this I think the big picture.
