Deutsche Bank turned over Trump financial documents to New York prosecutors
"More trouble for the president another scandal that has dogged him actually now for most of his first term, here's the headline in the Times tonight quote trump's bank was subpoenaed by New York prosecutors in criminal inquiry. Here's the nut graph of that story. Here's how it starts the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, which means state prosecutors in New York state issued the subpoena last year to Deutsche Bank, which has been Mr trump's primary lender. Since the late nineteen nineties, they are seeking financial records that he and his company provided to your bank according to people familiar with the inquiry because of. Its long-standing and multifaceted relationship with trump Deutsche Bank has been a frequent target of regulators and lawmakers digging into the president's opaque finances but the subpoena from the Office of the District Attorney appears to be the first instance of a criminal inquiry involving trump and his dealings with Deutsche to lent him in and his company more than two billion dollars over the past two decades. Here's the amazing part the part that was the sort of draw jaw-dropping reveal in this story. Quote deutschebank complied with the subpoena. Out over a period of months last year, the bank provided the prosecutor's office with detailed records including financial statements and other materials that Mr Trump provided to the bank as he sought loans according to two of the people familiar with the inquiry. The subpoena to Georgia banks saw documents on various topics related to Mr Trump and his company including any materials that might point to possible fraud according to people briefed on the subpoenas contents. The bank's cooperation with the prosecutor's office is significant because other investigations that have sought trump's financial records have been stymied by legal challenges from the president and his family. This criminal investigation from New York prosecutors initially appeared to be focused on hush money payments made in two thousand sixteen to two women who said they had affairs with Mr Trump. But in a court filing this week prosecutors in the district attorney's office cited public reports of possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the trump organization and suggested they were also investigating possible crimes involving bank fraud. And Insurance Fraud. So. To be clear, this is a big deal that the New York Times is reporting tonight this is not about the subpoenas for the president's financial and tax information that were litigated up to the supreme. Court are now kicking around in the lower lower courts by the present, his lawyers seek to delay compliance with these subpoenas. What this is about is a subpoena of Deutsche Bank. which has loaned two billion dollars mysteriously to the president over his recent business career. Subpoenas to Deutsche, bank related to their dealings with the president, and these are not subpoenas that the president has successfully fended off in these tied up in court. This is a subpoena to Deutsche Bank the bank has complied with. And they have handed over all of this trump related documentation to state prosecutors were apparently pursuing a multifaceted criminal investigation of the president and his business an investigation that is not bound by the Justice Department's Ninety Day rule such as it is nor are they bound by the Justice Department's rules prohibiting the indictment of a sitting president because those rules are federal rules and these are state prosecutors? Prosecutors not answerable to attorney general the embar. Not only is it news that they are pursuing this stuff in the way that they are it is big news that in pursuing this information about the president, they got it they got their hands on this stuff from Deutsche Bank. Who Knew.

One nation, under gods? Indias divisive temple
"Off. Today India's Prime Minister Narendra. Modi. Traveled to the northeastern city of yoga which was hung with saffron flags and more than one hundred, thousand jobs. He came to lay the first stone of temple to Rahm incarnation of the Hindu God vishnu with believed was born in the city. This isn't the standard fare of a politician pressing the flesh for a photo op. It fulfils a promise Mr Moody made as a young politician to return to iota only when construction on a new temple began. Key. Speech at the dedication broadcast into the whole country he said the temple would be a symbol of unity that the weight of centuries and today. Agreement nation. Idea A symbol of unity. It is not the weight of centuries as Mr Moody and his BJP party see it goes back to the founding of a mosque on the site that was razed to the ground nearly thirty years ago. When we're talking about a Yoda today, we're talking about a very specific place just a couple of acres off the center of town where there was a great big mosque built in the sixteenth century and destroyed by Hindu activists in nineteen ninety-two. Alex. TREBEK's is the economists India correspondent based in Delhi the site of that former mosque is what's under contention? It's been the most controversial. Acre. In all of India. Ever since and the question is whether or not Hindus may bill the temple to Rahm right there and so how did things progressive since nineteen ninety two when the the mosque was destroyed how does that end up as a temple concentration today? It's been a terribly. Tortuous story through the courts after decades of legal stasis and very bizarre humiliation the supreme. Court. Last November, few months after Narendra Modi Wins, wapping reelection decides that the most crucial part of the ground ought to be given to the Hindus go ahead and build the temple that you've been clamoring for these decades. The court noted that the demolition of the mosque illegal in sort of compensation that no one appreciated very much allocated several acres of idle land outside the town to Muslims. In effect, the court just gave the Hindus white they had wanted and I mean the Hindu nationalists, the very groups that had clamored for the destruction of the mosque and eighty is a ninety S. And so what precisely is happening today then so today is the last of three days of the ceremony. Put. In which people most notably the prime minister are doing various prayers, offering ritual sacrifices, and so on. Around the site itself most spectacularly in the middle of all the Prime Minister Narendra. Modi ritually lifted into place the forty kilograms silver brick, which serves as temples foundation stone. Now it's consecrated and all its left is to keep on raising money and build the actual structure itself and what's the reaction been from Muslims about this this contentious building. You know in a way Muslims and everyone cares about civil rights and the secular foundation of India knows what to say no. One's happy about it. firebrand Muslim leader in Parliament Assadi. Noisy has criticized the prime minister going to a religious event and it's indeed striking that the prime minister should be there on the temple grounds with a bunch of priests and Politicos all mixed in as if they were a single class, it's shocking if you've been sleeping under a rock as India's changed in recent years and in fact, I was Struck that there have been no mass protests by Muslim groups either after the Supreme Court's decision last November nor today it doesn't mean they're happy about it. But at this point, the thing to protest, we talked a lot about Narendra Modi's brand of Hindu nationalism I. Guess This is kind of a pinnacle. Then for his aims I mean what? What does this mean for him and his party it is a pinnacle of sorts but I think it's more important to look at this as the end of a long first stage of Hindu nationalism. Movement. In India. We're looking at something more like a capstone than a foundation stone and at the same time this date August fifth was chosen for quite obvious reason. It's the first anniversary of this government very bold move to strip the state of jump in Kashmir India's only Muslim state a year ago of its status as a state and rule it directly from Delhi that was one of the main three goals that the Hindu nationalist movement had till. Now now, the third of those goals creating a uniform civil code that would bind. Muslim family law into line with Hindu and secular family law governs most of the rest of India is a less inspiring goal and it's been half accomplished. Already what Mr Moody is going to need in future is another another series of rallying cries like build the temple and where he's GonNa find them it's just not obvious at this point. So today's ceremony is is not a cause for for great triumph. This is this is not the the the end of this long road for the Jay he's hindu-nationalist goals and therefore mission accomplished. This is a triumph. Yes. By all rights Mr, Modi a good one to be taking the victory lap for his party is ideologically movement but that's also very backwards looking Mr Moody was elected with a terrific share of the parliamentary seats in two thousand fourteen in the first place. Because of these hindu-nationalist goals which attracted the devotion of his base, but because Indians were eager for change for economic development and good technocratic governance of a sort that he seemed specially poised to offer, there are various reforms for which he and his government can claim credit over the past six years. But there are many many more disappointments and in particular over the past two years say before the covid nineteen pandemic and then much much worse since it's begun, India's facing an economic crisis, it's every indicator is worse than they've been in a generation. So there's GonNa be a very strongly felt need. A week the opposition to come up with some way of rallying the country some nationalistic theme or series of themes to distract from the sort of impasse in India finds itself had economically this Hindu. Nationalist ideology offers no guidance towards what India's trade policy ought to be say or how environmental law to be fixed or scrapped. They've got a steady ideology, but it's not tacked onto any particular policies at this point i. think that the government we have in place right now strong government but in dark turbulent times is going to be almost desperate to find something to replace the impetus with. Altogether, though these changes that have already gone through, do you think it chips away at the basis of modern India's government? The the idea that religion shouldn't be a part of it. Yeah I think that India as we know it maybe as an idea we almost to retire Mahatma? Gandhi. Still on on every currency note but this is not Ghandi's India anymore you might almost say that the the anti-secularist of one it's now very ordinary to see symbols of state power mixed with. Symbols of sectarian dominance over the hindu-majority expressing itself often revanchist terms, which is why this template a Yoda really does. Alex thanks very much for joining US Jason.

Census to Halt Operations a Month Early Amid Growing Fears of a Population Undercount
"Bureau has confirmed it will wrap up its count a month early. It's a move that many fear could reduce the accuracy of the population. Tout NPR national correspondent has alone. Juan broke this story last week, and the bureau confirmed it last night in hand. The census happens as we know every 10 years. The end date was initially postponed until late October because of the pandemic. Now the bureau is saying that it will wrap up on September 30th. What reasons has the sense is given According to a statement, the Census Bureau director Stephen Dealing Ham posted on the sense sphere is website last night. The Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, who oversees the Census Bureau, has directed the bureau to speed up counting to end it cut it short a month early in order to meet current legal deadline. There's a deadline set by federal fall, it says the Census Bureau via the Commerce secretary has to present to the president the latest state pop. Elation counts by December 31st of this year, and those are the numbers that are used to redistribute seats in Congress among the states, and that was a deadline The bureau had said in April that it could no longer meet because of the pandemic needed more time has asked Congress to give it more time by extending the deadline into 2021. Sir from Congress has not extend that deadline. Democrats have introduced legislation, but Republicans have not regarding those deadlines. And so the Commerce secretary apparently is saying it is time to make this change to make sure we can meet that deadline. Okay, let's break this down a little bit. NPR first reported that the agency had decided to cut short door knocking efforts. What is the impact, though of finishing early like this and what populations Could be most impacted by an undercount. One thing to keep in mind here is that you know, through all this back and forth career officials from the Census Bureau, including associate director for the 2020 cents is an associate director for field operations has publicly stated that the bureau as early as May, they've said, can no longer meet this federal deadline of December 31st And by rushing to do it at this point by not continue to count through October 30 1st there are concerns here that there would be great and accuracy and the data that are collected because we're at a point in the senses, with roughly four out of 10 households that have not yet responded to the senses, those four out of 10 whole household's roughly our representative of historically under counter groups who are Less likely to respond on the census around their own and are really probably only get counted if a door knocker gets to meet them and tries to essentially convinced them to do an in person interview outside their home for about five minutes, trying to collect that information and otherwise the bureau if it rides up, finding homes that are vacant or or seemed to be vacant or unresponsive here has to rely on government records and That way of rely on government records using statistical methods The bear has used before, but the bureau might have to use it at a much, much greater extent. And that could really hurt theocracy because those methods tend to over represent the white population while under representing people of color. Yeah, as we know, the Trump administration tried last year to get a citizenship question added to the census. The Supreme Court rejected that attempt. How does this week's news that the census will wrap up early fit into the bigger picture? I mean, the question everyone is asking is, Is this change? Politically motivated? You know, I've been covering the 2020 cents is all the lead up to it for three more than three years now, and it has been a Siri's Of attempts by the Trump administration to have a very direct hand and how the senses is carried out to be very clear. There is no citizenship question on the 2020 cents is, even though the Trump Administration tried very hard to get one onto the forms, and that on now, you know, just just recently Last Last month, President Trump released a presidential memo calling for unauthorized immigrants to be excluded. From the census numbers used to redistribute seats in Congress. Even though the Constitution says the counting of the whole number of persons in each state that's the that's how that's the people that should be counted nor determine how many states how many seats in Congress each state gets. So this latest move here a lot of Democrats a lot of sense its advocates, given what career officials have said about the need for more time or really questioning. Why is there this push to not extend counting and what happens with Congress? That's NPR's national correspondent. Hotsy Low long hands. Thank you so much for joining us. You're welcome, Tanya.
Trump and company could be under investigation for bank and insurance fraud

New York DA Seeking President Trump’s Tax Returns Cites Probe Into Reports Of ‘Protracted Criminal Conduct’ At Trump Organization
"NYC Prosecutor alleges protracted criminal conduct at trump organization inquest for president's personal tax returns by Larry Neumeister of the Associated Press in New York. A Manhattan prosecutor trying to get President Donald Trump tax returns told a judge Monday that he was justified in demanding them citing public reports of extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the trump organization trump's lawyers. Last month said the grand jury subpoena for the tax returns was issued in bad faith and amounted to harassment of the President Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus. Vance junior seeks eight years of the Republican presidents, personal corporate tax records, but has disclosed little about what prompted him to request the records other than part of the investigation relates to payoffs to women to keep them quiet about alleged affairs with trump. In a court filing Monday though attorneys for Vance said, trump's arguments that the subpoena was too broad stemmed from the false premise that the probe was limited to. So called Hush money payments this court is already aware that the assertion is fatally undermined by undisputed information. In the Public Record Vance's lawyers wrote, they said that information confirms the validity of a subpoena seeking evidence related to potentially improper financial transactions by a variety of individuals and entities. Over a period of years they said public reporting demonstrates that at the time, the subpoena was issued their republic allegations of possible criminal activity at plaintiffs New York. County based trump organization dating back over a decade these reports described transactions involving individual and corporate actors based in New York, county, but whose conduct at times extended beyond New York's borders this possible criminal activity occurred within the applicable statute of limitations. Particularly, if the transactions involved a continuing pattern of conduct, the lawyer said the lawyers urged Judge Victor Marrero to swiftly reject trump's arguments saying the baseless claims were threatening the investigation moreau against trump last year has scheduled arguments to be fully submitted by mid August every day that goes by day plaintiff effectively achieves the temporary absolute immunity that was rejected by this. Court the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court vans lawyer said, every such day also increases the prospect of loss of evidence or the expiration of limitations periods. The precise concerns that the Supreme Court observed justified its rejection of plaintiffs immunity claim in the first place. The Supreme Court last month rejected claims by trump's lawyers that the president could not be criminally investigated while he was in office bans lawyers said trump was not entitled to know the scope and nature of the grand jury investigation but they said information already in the public domain about trump's business dealings provided satisfactory support for the subpoena of. Tax. They cited several newspaper articles including one in the Washington Post examining allegations that trump had a practice of sending out financial statements to potential business partners and banks that inflated the worth of his properties by claiming they were bigger or more potentially lucrative than they were trump's former personal lawyer. Michael Cohen describes such practices during Congressional. Testimony. Vance sought the tax records in part for a probe of how Cohen arranged.

Trump investigation goes beyond hush money to alleged mistresses, Manhattan DA suggests
"Manhattan district attorney's office investigation into President Trump and his company seems to be a larger in scope than previously thought. A new court filing today indicates the prosecutors may be looking at the possible bank and insurance fraud. And not just if hush money was paid for women who allegedly had affairs with the president. In fact, Cyrus Vance sites what he says could be extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization.

Supreme Court Victory, Progress for Native Americans
"One of the big rulings from this year Supreme Court term was mcgirt versus Oklahoma. The five to four decision declared a swath of the state near Tulsa to be part of the Muskogee creek nations reservation enforcing nineteenth century treaties the US made with the creek that landmark recognition of native American rights could lead to nearly half of the state being classified as Indian country but it also. Wrestled with questions of sovereignty on native American reservations. This is an issue that native American legal advocates Sarah dear who is a citizen of the Muskogee? Creek, nation has been working on for many years. We had a chance to speak with her following the decision Sarah. I'd love to hear your reflections on this decision as well as the broader impact. This could have for all native Americans. Well. Winning a treaty case in the Supreme Court. In twenty twenty is not what anybody was expecting. This case came about in a very interesting and unexpected way as a result of some folks who were prosecuted by home, and so they they were the champions for tribal sovereignty I. It's a very odd circumstance where you have perpetrators of crime on the one hand and celebrating their victory because it means so much for Indian country. So Sarah, you've worked on tribal law and issues of sovereignty for much of your career. Why is this such a pivotal issue for you and for Native Americans? The Supreme Court does not have a great track record with tribal issues and so when cases move their way through the federal system, you know from the district to the circuit to the Supreme Court. Feel like we're always playing defense like we're really struggling to get the issues of tribal tribal governments you know to be treated seriously, and so I think this victory is not just important for native people from my tribe are even if people from Oklahoma but to see a treaty be held up as the law of the land, the constitution requires is a tremendous lift for people all over the United States who care about tribal issues tell us more about the work ahead regarding this issue. Sure. Well, one of the restrictions that still remains on our jurisdiction over crimes is that we can't prosecute. Unless it's a domestic violence case. So that means that if a non native person commits a homicide or a sexual abuse case against a child, if they do those things and it's on the reservation, we have no power over them in terms of the criminal justice system. So one of my long term agenda items is to change that to just re restore tribes like any government can prosecute anybody who comes into our community and commits an act of violence. I'm currently sitting in Kansas right now if I went to Missouri and committed a crime, you know they could prosecute me. So why shouldn't it be the same tribes Sarah gear slightly another big topic in the news, of course, is the impact of the coronavirus across the world and we know that it has also hit native Americans particularly hard. Why is that and what kind of attention would you like to see around this issue? I'm. So glad you asked that I think the primary issue that we're seeing of course, the health disparities that already exist. Right. So we've been talking about how folks have a higher rate of of sort of vulnerabilities like diabetes or lung disease, those kinds of things, and so tribal nations suffer from those disparities as well I think it's also hearkens back right to smallpox in a way because tribal nations almost disappeared as a result of widespread adoption. Starting in the seventeen hundreds and even continuing into the Spanish flu era. In the early part of the twentieth century, you know very high death rates and so there's a sense that here's a sense of urgency about viruses that may not exist in other communities because we know we're barely here. In the aftermath of smallpox, and so we do take these things very seriously. I also think that tribal communities tend to be very small and and sort of. Close, and so that also puts our nation at risk in are like in some of our trouble cultures, you just don't. You don't knock go see grandma. Culturally like you go see grandma right and so that's been a cultural barrier and some of our communities towards the necessary necessity of isolation that's been a hard cultural thing to to deal with for a lot of native people. We're also at a time where we're seeing a movement across the nation focusing on several rights reforming the justice system. It seems like we're also seeing a lot more intersection -ality on issues that overlap for multiple groups here. Do you feel that native Americans are being heard in these broader conversations in this broader push for equality? I do I think that you know the black lives matter has really open doors for for many different issues although the the centering of of black bodies and police brutality certainly at the core, the discussions and the protests that we're having a really opening up a lot of conversations and those are conversations that native people have wanted to have on a national level and wanted to be able to. Take to a larger audience and I think we owe a debt of gratitude to black lives matter which is open. So many doors to talk about difficult historical issues and of course, that's our story right typical historical issues that that have really damaged tribal communities and so that opportunity has we've really benefited I think from other forms of activism and I feel very grateful for the work that they've done.

"This is the world I'm Carol. Hills the US Supreme Court weighed in today on the question of presidential power and in a big way. The justices decided seven two two that prosecutors in new. York must be given access to president. Trump's financial records White House lawyers were arguing that trump should be immune from criminal proceedings, but that argument did not fly. It means executives financial institutions who've done business with Donald trump are now going to have to decide how to respond Deutsche Bank headquartered in Frankfurt Germany is one of them. David enrich is the author of a new book called Dark Towers Deutsche Bank Donald Trump in an epic trail of destruction David. Enrich joins US now from new. New York. David Tell me about the relationship between Donald, trump and bank. They go back a long way, right? Yeah, they go back nearly two decades at this point and for Donald. Trump he was actually a pariah in the banking world for a very long time, because of his tendency to default on loans and stiff, his business partners, and doing to bang starting the late nineteen nineties was the one mainstream financial institution that was consistently willing to do business with trump, and so over a period of many years the bank lent him two billion dollars, and currently with him in the White House. He's still owes the bank more three hundred million dollars in debt to the bank. What kind of reputation does Deutsche Bank have very very bad? The banks been around for one hundred and fifty years with a brief interruption when it was the Nazi Party's Bank of choice and. Twenty years or so, the bank became a much bigger player on Wall Street, and became frankly just much greater, really pursued short-term profits above absolutely everything else, and as a direct consequence, the bank gotten all sorts of trouble for intimate every offense under the sun money laundry attacks of agent, violating international sanctions, ripping off its customers, ripping off investors, governments and doing business with kind of a WHO's who of bad people, whether is Jeffrey Epstein or Russian oligarchs or alleged terrorist organizations. So, don't you? Banks done a lot of business with Donald Trump. Presumably, they have a lot of records on trump's financial life. What is don't you bank now? Bank knows just about everything. There is to know about Donald Trump's finances. Really I mean they have tax returns of of trump's companies, family members they are able to identify the shell companies that are used by trump and his business partners around the world to boot money, and they also have detailed records about essentially suspicious transactions that have taken place in the trump accounts. That's something that we know about. Because there have been some whistle blowers who tried to raise red flags and were thwarted by the bank, so it really represents a huge treasure trove of the president's financials. Why don't you bank a Federal Court last? October that it did not have trump's tax returns. That is a very good question. The odd thing about this is that as I was reporting. My book our powers. I talked to people at Deutsche Bank. Would personally seen trump's tax returns in previous years, so the bank did have his tax returns, and if you take it at face value that they no longer do that, means they somehow got rid of them? which might reporting suggest the most likely case is that they returned them to trump maybe shortly, worried again present, what today's ruling then couldn't Deutsche Bank be called upon to release this financial information including tax returns that so many people would like to see well I think a lot of ways today's ruling. A pretty big victory for president trump issue is not settled yet, and it's going to go back to lower courts to hash out the details of how these units will be enforced, and exactly what information is being ended over, but the trump families goal from the moment these subpoenas were issued last spring as been to delay delay delay, and as a result of today's. Supreme Court decisions. There's almost zero chance that join tobacco or maize ours. The firm will hand over anything to anyone before the election so I think trump is probably reading a bit of a sigh of relief right now. David enrich author of the new book Dark Towers Deutsche Bank Donald Trump in an epic trail of destruction. Thanks a lot David. EXE Any.

This seem to work. Because when Bunn was released from prison ice wasn't there to pick him up. which is extremely unusual. Every year thousands of immigrants are released from prison and put into detention where they face deportation immigrant rights. Activists have been fighting this policy for years, but it's come under renewed scrutiny with the pandemic some. Lawmakers want the ice transfers to stop particularly with the threat of Covid nineteen last week..

"'cause you, you'd have a better perspective than me, but also think that the industry. Has Come to live with the agency. Especially, especially, the major players, banks and mainstream players, not the bottom, not like the. Fringe players, right and and what what those people and institutions want is regulatory certainty. They want to know what the rules are, and so the idea of. You know messing this all up by going in and having Congress fight over the structure of the agency. After this case I I don't I just don't see that happening. While I. Don't see it happening either. I thought at one point. There might be some hope the the industry I agree with you, they. I don't hear any Hue and cry to abolish the agency. really haven't heard that in the longtime, but the industry I think. Does not like. does not want the agency to do one eighty degree. turnabouts every four years. I mean right. It's nuts by you know, have one director promulgate certain regulations and have other director Undo everything that the other director did and we have a pretty good example of an agency. That's avoided that kind of. turmoil resulting from the change of administration, namely the FCC Five Commissioners. Majority under the. Control of the whoever is. In charge of the presidency at that time, and seems to work pretty well, and that's originally the way that the bureau was supposed to be structured at least when the the bill passed by the house, it called for five member commission, and that it got changed in the Senate. That's true and. I think. In retrospect lease, my belief is that. That was not a wise idea that it was very. At the time recognizing that Obama Democrat was going to be in charge and was GONNA pick the first director, but you see what happened. you know after Obama's term is over I. Think the thinking is for an agency like this given the power of the industry in question given how much political power it has in its ability to capture. Any regulator. We recognize. There might be some periods where it's not gonna be as effective, but at least let it be good in the good years it least let it have someone. The possibility that there is someone who's who's going to be aggressive. And is going to. Do the kinds of rulemakings that need to be done and not just. A seed to whatever the industry wants. So you know I, think it's a it's a tough question about institutional design, and it's hard to know empirically. Better, but there are a lot of examples of regulatory agencies that are incomplete stasis. Because they are multi-member bodies that do nothing like the Nuclear Regulatory Commission or actually the the Federal Election Commission the some of these agencies they're basically are incapable of doing anything and so there is a kind of paralysis that can set in what looks like balance can also ended up being paralysis. Whereas in the CFPB's case the way it's set up and I still think this will be true after the Supreme Court's decision. it is capable when it's in the right hands of doing a lot of good and it did know knits for several years it stepped into a marketplace that was badly in need of of being cleaned up of marketplace where there were practices that were so. Harmful to consumers that they didn't just harm. The consumers affected. They actually threatened to cripple the united. States economy in intern, the global economy and so something something had to be done..

"I don't think was nineteen thirties. There was a case that raise the constitutionality of the Federal Trade Commission the way they were structured because they are under the Federal Trade Commission Act Commissioners that. It was a five there. Five commissioners supposed to the sole director of the CFPB. But they were removable by the President. Only for 'cause language similar to what's in the consumer financial protection at and the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality. Of the Federal Trade Commission Act against a similar kind while it came up in a different context, but and so, how did the Supreme Court get around that case? In order to reach the conclusion that they did they they, they clearly didn't overrule that case. It's and the the name of the case I know has the word as stated in it's. It's humphries executive. Resist executive right so Humphrey's executor is kind of the cornerstone of the administrative. Right it's been around since the new deal and it's it's how we can have. Independent agencies where the the heads of the agency are protected by four 'cause removal, and so that was a really big question. In this case, this was the court going to overrule or chip away at a Humphrey's executor. And if it had you know, that would be a real threat to agencies like the FTC. All these multi member commission that we've come. To rely and expect as as part of the administrative state, and and there are many conservatives. Who are not fans of Humphrey's executor, who really want to roll back the administrative state to before the new deal? So how? How did the Supreme Court addressed the issue? Basically what the Supreme Court did is. It sidestepped the issue distinguished. Humphrey's executor. And you know, there are several obvious ways to distinguish it. First of all Humphrey's executor was about a body of You know expert heads. WHO. Are Multi member commission. It's not a single director, and so this difference between. A multi-member body of Of experts who deliberate consult with one another at least in theory that's supposed to work I and a single director of the the CF PB with a five year term guarantee. Is Pretty Different in the court's view. And then they also say that that The the CFPB director has powers that are that are different. They have sort of quint is the court calls it quintessentially executive power. Including the ability to unilaterally issue final decisions that award of legal, legal and equitable relief in administrative adjudications. And the ability to to to seek daunting monetary penalties against private parties. The court says that basically the structure of the agency and the powers vested in the director. Make it fundamentally different from from the FTC. Okay so It a distinguishes Humphrey's executor. Although some people I've read, some accounts that say it doesn't really do that Clear job of distinguishing yet in that the FTC today is different than the F. T. C. in nineteen thirty and it may possess it. It doesn't of course have the right to supervise institutions. It's got enforcement power I guess it can get monetary penalties initially if I got for someone has to violate a consent order before they can get the monetary penalties, but in many respects and it end doesn't quite issue.

"That's sort of unusual. That doesn't happen very often that you have a justice shortly before joining the court weighing in so strongly. On one side? And then you know that case evaded a supreme. Court review for some complicated reasons may be. Don't WanNA get into here. And so the search was on for a replacement vehicle, right and I think. It was really. I think in some ways. A battle between the the lawyers the various lawyers who would represent sees these entities to figure out who would get their case. To the court I. Think as as the case reaches the court. There's anything terribly special about Salia Law as opposed to the others It doesn't end up mattering to the court's decision. What kind of action? the agency was taking because the court just approaches. This is a question of whether the structure of the agency is unconstitutional, and as I'm sure, we'll discuss supreme court basically ducks. Any. Question. About What on the ground impact, this is GonNa have for various agency actions that that have taken place. Yeah, you know so. All right. The the court grants erred from the Ninth Circuit decision upholding the constitutionality of the bureau brand then CFP does. One Eighty I guess. The best way I could describe it. The PB and the Solicitor General decide that they agree with the the Seila law that the statute is unconstitutional for the reason that seal a law proffered and then the US Supreme Court. needs to.

Yes. I've litigated against and also with him and I think really highly of him. I think they could have done better. And it was I believe it was justice Kagan who has circuit justice for the ninth. Circuit made that choice and I think she chose wisely in part because she was trying. I think to select an advocate who would who would speak? To the to the Conservatives on the on the court. I you know I will just say it's worth positive to think about how unusual it is that the Justice Department switched its position and that the federal government didn't didn't defend the statute. There is a really strong presumption. That the Department of Justice should be defending the work of Congress that's their job and it's I think it's disturbing when in the same case DOJ has taken a position and then just completely flips. Its position because the the political leadership. Decides that you know they disagree with the statute passed by Congress. It's a it's a disturbing. Precedent because it cannot be that statutes. Passed by Congress. fail because the administration fails to defend them. so as you say the court had to. To this. Option which it does has has it ever happened before Deepak? Where that's happened. Yeah, so actually. I was appointed by the by the Supreme Court to argue a case this past term so every term or so. For variety of reasons often when the government has flipped position, the court will appoint someone to argue but I think what you're asking..

What does it actually do well the law itself simply requires president trump and his administration to submit a report to Congress Define Chinese officials and other individuals who are responsible for the detention of leakers without charges and trial. And degrading inhumane treatment of these groups. But apart from that report, it is uncertain whether or not the administration would apply sanctions to individual. Also the legislation gives the administration the right to impose sanctions in this could include asset blocking visa rope revocations, even in eligibility for people to enter the United States, but the legislation really gives the White House room to opt against imposing sanctions. If they choose so so there's no authenticity so there seems to be a glaring contradiction between the new law. Sentiments alleged in John Bolton's book. How are we supposed to square that circle can can both be true? Well the president. In the period of trade negotiations with China I think just did not want to take on any other issues that might disrupt those negotiations in preventing an agreement, the United States in China of course signed a face on trade agreement in January and now the president's priorities appear to have changed. He is now focused on winning reelection and public opinion. Polls show that Americans have a high degree of unfavorability toward China that they see threats emanating from China so I believe that president trump is trying to use this issue to win votes and chief his reelection, so his whole goals have changed. China publicly denies the mass incarceration of the weaker people, but we also know of cases of workers who have been affiliated with Al Qaeda, and Isis so has there ever been to suggestion of China? Justifying the mass incarceration of Leaguers on national security grounds? Yes, the Chinese have explicitly said that there are weaker 's who have been involved in terrorist actions, and there have been a handful of terrorist actions in China over the last ten years, but they're his not a great deal of evidence that upwards of two to three million people are connected to some terrorism Bonnie glaser will leave it there. Thank you for your time. Thank you. That was Bonnie glaser director of the China Power Project of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. In Washington Weavers in the United States have been following all of this very closely. Forgot jaw dot is a software engineer in Virginia. He's worked to get the weaker human rights. Law enacted so for cod now that it's been signed by president trump how you feeling this really exciting. kind up became relief for all of us will have been drinking all we can do while risking our family. Members were still living inside China so it is really a huge step into victory I will say. It comes at the same time, as John Bolton's excerpt from his upcoming book, in which she alleges trump okayed detainment camps, concentration camps in China for weavers and other Muslim minorities. Does that change at all how you feel about the legislation passing? I got feelings at some point that kind of feel as an American, and especially working for the US government as a software engineer, but kind of felt betrayal, because it's really personal to me at my own president will kate that the Chinese government was camps which locked up my mom for more than fifty months, but by saying that a signed a bill, and then made it to into low. It was kind of leaving so just hope is bill. You'll be the first major step interviewer history, so we can put more sanctions and immoral limitations to the Chinese government or the officials, and then put an end to the camps as though forced labor. This is personal for you for caught. Your family is still in western China when we spoke last year, you described how your mother has been affected by this. Are you able now to be in touch with her? Yes, I can talk declared, but the communication has been Rowley Limited especially after last. November of my mom's story has published in the new. York Times pods guests, and later on there is a documentary about my mom storing the EJ loss Internet at home. This cutoffs an also this year mid February stopped working so it visibly worries Tom Perez as I wasn't able to talk more than forty five days, and after that she got another number as permit by the Chinese police. But now I don't WanNa talk the chorus through 'cause I can't even do facetime or because with my mom. And how free do feel to express yourself to her and she to you? In those calls there is there is no freedom at all everything recap to talk. Is We all know that's listened? By the Chinese police? At some point, you must be wondering whether she is self censoring or whether there was a kind of brainwashing going on. Do you think about that just couple days ago? The Chinese local government appreciates the came to her house and hurts right a statement saying that she was well. By the Chinese government, though local government officials, and then just praising how she has been taken care of. Has All of this affected your relationship with your mother? If you feel like you're not hearing the truth, because of censorship or other reasons, I mean that's got gotta be difficult. It is because I used to talk to my mom about almost everything..

"In that courtroom while it is in session I flew to Washington DC to sit in on some cases. Getting a measure of your opponent opponent is important, too. It helps to read your opponent by intangible cues like basketball. If you have to make adjustments in a courtroom, you have to make adjustments in the courtroom on the fly. If your opponent has a temper, he. Has a know it all demeanor, etc, the new adjust your game and exploit it to your advantage. One of the most important things I learned from years of arguing cases and being involved in politics was that if you want to win the hearts and minds of jurors or the public yet better argue to the middle of the case, or the or the policy were seeking. Extremists get the headlines, but lawyers who find the sweet spot in the middle when the game. A courtroom is like a stage. You have a captive audience. Those justices had to suffer me for the time allotted. My goal wasn't to just show up for bragging rights I wanted to win, and not just when I wanted to kick. That arrogant lawyers ass. The meeting in Detroit at Coney Island with a defense lawyer had its desired effect. It lit me on fire to prove he wasn't any better in the courtroom than me. Once the big show started. It was obvious that Moran Had A. Was a lot better at writing briefs than dancing in the courtroom under fire. He struggled at reading the justices that day. Justice Ginsburg engaged in a withering exchange with Moran. My experiences in courtrooms involved thinking on my feet. Maran's experiences were writing and research at a desk. My skills learned both in the streets of Flint and in the county courthouse. Were that my fastballs were placed exactly where I wanted them to go. I took that confidence to Washington. While I am at this on this rant. What really gave me another gear to win? was as condescending interaction with me. Lumping me with all prosecutors who he thinks, don't care about poor black people from flint. He was wrong on that one. He never met anyone like me before because I had more education than him and a whole bunch of street smarts earned from the University of dixieland subdivision. My guess is that until mirant started representing poor people on appeals, he had few encounters with poor black people. My hunch was proven right when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went after him with questions about what he would tell his client if he had been at at the trial and been that Vincent's lawyer in that flint courthouse. Moran Red in the face, and began to flounder badly, never gave an answer I knew at that moment he had lost the case. Any way back to the supreme, court. I shook his hand and wished him well. I learnt I leaned in his direction and joked. I said you're very lucky. I see in my last name. That with good humor shot back now. I am lucky. My last name is not Gore. Then suddenly. The clerk called the courtroom with an admonition to draw near to the business of the United States Supreme Court. And the justices appeared. On Q. In like a Vaudeville, act. Allowed Bell Rang. And, the Velvet curtains opened. There were nine justices. We're standing behind the bench staring at me. The show was to begin. My first thoughts were these these guys are really old? There's old is Moses. Leaving the court I thought to myself. Those justices were alum lot smarter than me. Justice William Rehnquist than called the case I arose, nervously addressed the court with the traditional salutation MR chief justice, and may it please the core? I confidently delivered my introduction, and thus began the longest and most thrilling twenty minutes my legal career. And there. I stood fielding questions from the justices of the United. States Supreme Court. All, that preparation kicked in. All that I had learned as a kid. Streets of Flint Michigan gave me the will to win. This was no different than playing basketball to win on the asphalt courts in dixieland subdivision. I wanted to win didn't want to win I really really wanted to win. For All the right reasons. I kept thinking. If I got to tell my grandkids about this case I sure and a how didn't WanNa? Tell them that I lost it. The justices zeroed in on questions about four sentences into my argument. Just Justice Scalia wanted to drag me off into some radical far-right swamp with an argument I didn't agree with it all. Being a prosecutor, my guess was he was GonNa vote for my position whatever they were in this case. It was those on the liberal side of the equation. I wanted to convince in order to win nine to nothing. It was necessary to find the middle of this group and go at it as hard as I could. My heart was pumping hard like I was riding my bike up the rocky mountains. My ears were beat red. I left. I left having left every bit of myself in that Tornado courtroom. Left there, knowing that all the courage and effort author risk taking in all the bobbing and weaving in that courtroom necessary to win. It was the best that I could give. I also left with two white quilt pins compliments of the court to commemorate this once in a lifetime experience. I won the case.

"Know what i'll take i'll take a great news story yes we all will and there's nothing better than the supreme court vacancy it's a great it is a great washington story because it has such huge ramifications for the country don't just about justice kennedy as a person the thing that struck me about his retirement was his desire to go to the white house and the hand deliver his retirement letter to the president is that tradition or is that a specific thing of justice kennedy's there is so smart of you to ask because typically the justice does notify the president directly but i can tell you how it's happened in the past it hasn't been handdelivered like that you know as a matter of routine for example sandra day o'connor gave the marshal of the court a letter to deliver to harriet myers who then was white house counsel to george w bush that was in two thousand five in before she knew she would one day be a supreme court nominee the harry yes right right like this executive but then for example when byron white left in nineteen ninetythree he gave the letter to ron lane who you know well who happened to be a former law clerk who was working for president clinton at the time so members of the court wanting to retire will get their message sent to the white house but typically they don't go over themselves so what does that tell us about justice kent well i can tell you that he has had a bit of a relationship with president trump he did not have one prior to that although there have been plenty of news reports about his sons having been friendly with president trump sons they're all in business in new york and he over the remember he went to the white house to swear in neal gorsuch in april of two thousand seventeen they met then so i think they had developed a relationship also i know that white house counsel don mcgann president trump's right hand man on choosing nominees to the lower courts as well as the supreme court had been in regular touch with justice kennedy so there is a relationship building there and i think that frankly justice kennedy has faith in president trump and whoever he's going to nominate and what have we gotten an again i asked tradition wise and if this is different have we heard reaction from the other justices yet to the kennedy retirement oh yes they said plenty publicly but like praising him yes those kinds of things like he was wonderful we love serving with him thirty years it was great we love we love tony kaye those kinds of statements they haven't said no in fact that's what i said yesterday when i observed just as briar on the bench looking pretty easy going in happy he did not know at that point and i we kiddingly say and why is that man smiling because he does not know the liberal justices have to be devastated because justice kennedy was their fifth vote if they were ever going to be in the majority you have referred to the sometimes it's the kennedy court correct and you're now defining what that means he is this swing vote although i think it's i haven't done a fool analysis maybe he's probably cited more with the conservative or more than he has with the liberals but when he does go with the liberals especially on some of these social issues whether abortion or gay marriage or the death penalty those are big high profile national hot button moments and he gets you know we swings that other way if indeed as we anticipate that fits vote doesn't become so swinging and it really does become more of a reliable conservative five four kind of setup on the court that is change ideologically the composition of the court no absolutely absolutely because in you're you're right to point out some of these social policy wants because frankly i'll tell you right now justice kennedy was with the majority in citizens united versus the federal commission justice kennedy has always been a leader on trying to lift campaign finance regulations he's very much about the first amendment being very broad for corporate coverage as well as individual rights to the first amendment so there is speech money as speech and he also was one of the five votes for shelby county versus holder would seriously curtailed the voting rights act of nineteen sixty five but we're just as kennedy went with the four liberals to uphold gay rights across the board and then to.
