Arizona State Senator-Elect Jake Hoffman on the Latest Out His State
"Us right now is Jay Kaufman. He is state senator elect. Is that right, Jake? You're now a state senator, is that right? That's correct. Congratulations. I didn't know that. So Jake, I was looking at those Queen Creek precincts and they voted very nicely for Carrie Lake. I wish every precinct in Maricopa and pinal voted that way. So Jake, what is the latest in Arizona here? There seems to be a fight around certification. There's a lot of confusing information. Do you think that Katie Hobbs and governor doocy should certify this election? Well, Charlie, thanks for having me on. You teed it up perfectly. There is a lot to still be thankful for. But in terms of this election, we are watching the most incompetent shoddy election that has ever been run in the history of our country, unfold right now. And no, there is no question in my mind that it should not be certified by Doug ducey. It should not be certified by Katie Hobbs, which to me is a conflict of interest regardless. You know, tens of thousands of voters were directly disenfranchised and millions of voters or disenfranchised by extension. And so right now, what we're seeing is, look, this is coming down very explicitly to carry Lake and her legal team, Abe amade, and his legal team, Tom horn, and his legal team, and attorney general, attorney general has an election integrity unit that the legislature set up in 2019 for specifically situations like this and it needs to do its job. Now, they've started, they've done a great job so far of outlining the litany of issues that exist with this election, but they need to pursue this with the full force of the attorney general's office. And I get it. That's politically that's difficult. It's the holiday season, you know, he's on his way out of office, but he has to understand that this is not about a particular candidate or a particular election. This is about the most foundational element of our republic,
What Is Happening With the Midterm Results in Arizona?
"What is happening with the midterm election results in Arizona? I think many of us know that that was a, let's just call it a deeply flawed election far from the most secure election in history. And the results there's some question about whether they're going to be certified. The most important development here is that the Arizona attorney general's office. This is Mark barnova and also his assistant attorney general, Jennifer Wright, they have essentially called out miracle book county. They've produced a demand and they've said, look, we've got hundreds of complaints. This is their quote, since election day. They go, this is firsthand witness accounts. So these aren't speculation or people who say this might have happened. These are people who were there. And by the way, there was a squadron of Republican attorneys there and many of them have also personally testified to what has what went wrong. So what did go wrong? Number one, the breakdown of these tabulation machines. A lot of them. There's some debate about how many, but it looks like there were tabulating machine problems in 70 voting locations. And somewhere between 25 and 50% of these tabulating machines were not working. Now, here's what's weird. They were working for early voting when the Democrats were showing up to vote. They were tested right before election day. They were supposed to work, and then they didn't work. And they didn't work right at the beginning, so starting in the morning and continuing for most of the day. So tons of people were discombobulated, frustrated, in long lines, some of them basically discussed went home, so within 30 minutes of voting these problems began.

MSNBC Blames Conservatives for Colorado Nightclub Shooting
"The folks over at MSD and see they have finally figured out who to blame for this shooting at the gay club in Colorado Springs, cut 6, please. The theory is if you're fearful enough, you're not going to push back. But what we need to see happening is the exact opposite. We need to see accountability and consequences. So first, a real quick hate crime charge here on top of the homicide charges, I applaud that. That tells me, prosecutors and police, they found quickly what they needed. That means they know this was a bias crime. This is likely, and since we've heard reports that the subject isn't cooperating with police, that means they likely found clear and convincing evidence on his devices. If he's a consumer of the people we just rattled off from Lauren boebert to Tucker Carlson, let's get it out. Let's get it out at trial. Let's expose it for what it is. Name it and shame it. He's a consumer of these people and those people should pay civil consequences from the victims. Yeah, that's a heavy dose of grade 8 crap. Ladies and gentlemen, what we do know about this attacker is that he is 22 years old. He's a Mormon. I don't know if he likes to get Marie. I don't know. Just because you're Mormon, doesn't make come on, grace, just because you're a Mormon doesn't mean you like Donnie and Murray. Or the handsome. So the guy was a Mormon. So it's not like he's some sort of Southern Baptist. Or I don't know, Presbyterian. Why am I not picking on your denomination grace? Just step away from the microphone. You're just making up for the weeks loss. I am, I am here. But the whole point of this is that there's no proof that this guy we still even know if it is in fact a hate crime. But here's what here's what we do know that they have a George Soros district attorney in Colorado Springs, and this Yahoo let this guy walk when he threatened to blow up his mother.
Glenn Kirschner Sheds Some Light on Special Counsel Jack Smith
"So let's get to the big question. Because we've been flailing without you as you know. Ever since the appointment of Jack Smith, who apparently is not the guy in the matrix, he puts on sunglasses. I think he is. But no, it's a different guy. Different guy. Okay. But Glenn, I think it was Barbara mcquaid, I saw on TV first that said, you know, the Justice Department wouldn't be doing a special prosecutor if they weren't going to indict. If they were going to decline. So, you know, and then everyone from tally nostalgia was like, this is no Jill wine banks initially said this is a waste of time and money. And you and I have been obviously impatient for justice for a long time and my first thought is, why isn't an indictment? Why is it, you know, yet another step. But, you know, it takes me a second to calm down. But just a little. But I think we all have Mueller fatigue, right? We think, oh God, are we starting all over again, blah, blah, blah. And a lot of people have pointed out how Lawrence tribe and others that they think this will speed it up and not slow it down. Dying to get your take on it because I do get that it's different a bill Barr's not in charge, it's not Trump's Justice Department. He is not starting from scratch, but give us your whole overview on this. Yes, Steph, I wish we had an hour. There's so much to unpack. And we do have, we have superhero fatigue. We thought bob Mueller was going to come in and take Trump out. His report did take Trump out the problem is Congress and the Department of Justice didn't act on the crimes that bob Mueller documented in volume two of the Trump Russia report. We thought Merrick Garland was going to come in and do what was necessary. It turns out in hindsight, Merrick Garland turned out to be too much judge and not enough prosecutors. So I am not prepared to say Jack Smith is galloping in on the white horse and he's going to take care of all this. However, first thing I did was I talked to all my Friends and former colleagues who worked with or for Jack Smith. I don't know Jack personally, to a person, they can not speak highly enough of his determination to hold criminal politicians accountable. Without regard to politics or criticism or fear of failure, here's why I really like the appointment of Jack Smith. We can do an autopsy on whether Merrick Garland should have appointed a special counsel. There are good arguments on both sides, but I think the bottom at the bottom of it all wants Trump announced he was a candidate. Let's face it, Merrick Garland is Joe Biden's attorney general. So to have Joe Biden's attorney general going after Joe Biden's only announced political opponent in the 2024 election, I believe, left Merrick Garland, no other choice but to appoint a special counsel.
Arizona to Investigate Possible Voting Violations
"The attorney general has opened our attorney general's office, has opened an inquiry into the Maricopa County's handling of the midterm election. Demanding a full report will publicize full report of the well publicized irregularities and warning there is evidence of statutory violations. Now, I live in Maricopa County. I know what's up here, and what they did in this election, whether through them being egregious, whether they didn't be a malicious, or just plain stupid, it doesn't matter because the disenfranchised a lot of people who were showing up to the polls to vote are right to vote. We have statutory laws in place to make sure everybody have a fair opportunity to vote. And just because you want to vote on election day, that may be the only day you can vote. It doesn't mean you have an opportunity to disenfranchise you. There is no way whatsoever that you can claim that an election was fair, you know, cheating the was it fair, you can't say that the election was fair when people showed up to the voting booth and the machines wouldn't work.

An Election Day Suppression Operation
"Bill Gates was asked the question, hey, why does it take ten days to count votes? Play cut 7. Today they're working on reconciling the election day ballots with check ins. They're also counting up all the right in votes and finally their processing the ballots with signatures that have been cured since the deadline of 5 p.m. on Wednesday. That's what election integrity looks like. Oh, she's lecturing us about election integrity. He's saying that election integrity means taking ten days to count your ballots. But again, it begs the question, what changed, exactly? And now you might say, oh, Charlie, what difference does it make? It's not that big of a difference. This is a monumental difference. 200 and 48,000 people voted in person on election day. 248,000 people. How many people were turned away because of the one hour line, the two hour line that started because of this sabotage machine malfunction and failure that happened in the way of voting that conservatives have a preference to vote more than any others. By the way, we're looking at just a half of percentage of results. We're talking about the current tally has Carrie Lake down so slightly. Kerry Lake currently in the tally down 17,000 428 votes down .6%. In the attorney general's race, it's a statistical tie and Abe holiday is down 850 votes. You see, when you create bedlam and chaos with machines all across the valley, people are less likely to go vote. It is an election day suppression operation.
The Big Question That NO ONE Can Answer
"To dive into this Arizona attorney general's letter. I'll be honest, this letter is a lot more forceful than I would have anticipated it is from Mark berner and Jennifer Wright to Thomas liddy, the civil division chief from the Maricopa County attorney's office. And it goes into great detail one after the other asking some questions. And the biggest question that no one can answer, the question that is outstanding that no one can pinpoint is why is it that the machines were working perfectly fine on November 7th, everything was great and then on the morning of November 8th in Maricopa County. The machines just stopped working. Now for some of you that are watching online, you might not understand the significance of this. The significance of all of this is as follows. The way that Maricopa does its elections is that you show up and you check in and you can forfeit your mail in ballot because Arizona has a lot of mail in ballots. And then they print you a new ballot to actually go print to actually go vote in person. That's right. They have to vote, they have to print you a new ballot on site so you could vote in person. They printed out right there. Then they have to run the ballot through the machine after you have filled out that ballot. Now, according to the official line of Maricopa County, according to the official line of the largest county in Arizona, where 62% of all voters live in Maricopa County, according to them, it was just a toner issue. It was just a matter of getting the toner settings right. And by one or two in the afternoon they got it all figured out. Now, the machines and the printers have a network administrator that really the question is, who is this administrator then?
Arizona AG Demands Full Report on ‘Myriad Problems’ in Maricopa Voting
"Arizona governor election had to daily wire and doubt his AG demands full report on a myriad of problems in Maricopa voting. Now, see, we might say, listen, guys, we got to stop crying. We got to stop whining, let bygones be bygones. We've got to move on. Guys, we don't get to move on anymore. If we move on, we lose this country. Do you understand me? We do not get to move on. Carl, you're too intense. What are you doing? People need to take a break. Thanksgiving and Christmas. You won't have a Thanksgiving and Christmas and these United States. If we don't start to fight back against the left that are intentionally trying to destroy this country. We don't get to rest. I'm sorry I was hoping for it. We don't get to rest. That's why I'm so thankful that Mike would have me in leading up to Thanksgiving. I'll be honest with you. I'm a bit of a workaholic. I don't even care about resting. I care about fighting because I care about this country. If there's nothing else that I can do, I want to make sure that I say this country. I'm part of saving this country for my daughter and God willing for her children in the future. And I hope that you feel the same. But going back to this story with Arizona, Arizona's attorney general's office ordered Maricopa County officials to submit a report on its botched handling of the November 8th election that led to democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs, a parent victory over Republican Carrie Lake, saying answers are needed before the elections can be certified. Okay, here's what I would have to say. And I love the fact that Republicans are getting it now. They're fighting. What took you so long? What turkey so

However, daily says that's not what she's currently expecting. I have a baseline case going into September that is 50 basis points. That's where I've been since the last meeting. But I have an open mind about whether 75 is going to be necessary. And a lot of that will depend on the labor market, inflation, and whether we start to see those things slow enough to say while we've got the momentum we need. San Francisco fed president Mary Daly speaking to Bloomberg there, the U.S. Central Bank increased rates by 75 basis points in both June and July and its battle against inflation, CPI increased by 8.5% year on year in July, slightly slower than the median forecasts.

"U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland coming out very strongly in defense of his people regarding the story and the search of Mar-a-Lago. He has had Baxter. He has global news. Yeah, rich, thank you, Garland, says he's asked a judge to unseal the warrant, joining us live as Bloomberg's mark and the cat Bloomberg national politics reporter. Mark, this is unusual circumstance. First of this search warrant on a former president of the United States and now the attorney general coming out basically and saying, you lay your hands, don't lay any hands verbally on my people. Right, it's very unusual for the Justice Department to speak about an ongoing investigation. They usually let their core to actions speak for them. But Merrick Garland, I think, was more or less forced into saying something because Donald Trump and his Republican supporters were portraying that search at his Mar-a-Lago resort as some kind of politically motivated attack on him. That was unwarranted. So Merrick Garland essentially gave a press conference a statement today saying he didn't take this decision lightly to personally agreed to seek the search warrant to look for the documents the records are looking for at Mar-a-Lago. Any defended his agents for doing their jobs essentially against the attacks from Trump and Republicans. So that we all understand. He is bound to not release the contents of the warrant. That's why he's asked the judge to open it. Donald Trump, though, is in possession of it and can release it and intimation that probably things in it that Trump doesn't want to make public. That's exactly right, Ed. In fact, Trump also has the ability to object to the unsealing of the search warrant if you want judge gave Trump until 3 o'clock eastern tomorrow to object to the unsealing. So the ball is kind of in Donald Trump's court now and Merrick Garland has kind of calling his bluff that this search of his Mar-a-Lago home was unjustified. Yeah, and this is, as you say, and we have about 30 seconds Mark, but responding to criticism, both from Trump and from right-wing commentators and the like, correct? Right. I mean, there's sort of portraying this as overreached by the government or attacks from Democrats all bent on trying to keep Trump from running again in 2024 as you see. All right.

"The solar winds campaign successfully hit accounts in twenty. Us attorney's offices the us department of justice said late. Friday among the offices most affected where the eastern northern southern and western districts of new york where eighty percent of employees office. Three sixty accounts were compromised. Why those districts were particularly affected is unclear and justice didn't elaborate on the reasons as is now well known the us has attributed the solar winds campaign to russia's svr foreign intelligence service. The justice department said quote the compromised data included all sent received and stored emails and attachments found within those accounts during that time and quote specifics of the damage done remain. A matter of speculation with several discussions of the possibility that for example information about confidential informants could have been compromised. The justice department is acting on the basis of worst case assumptions. Their announcement said quote. The department is responding to this incident as if the advanced persistent threat group responsible for the solar winds breach had access to all email communications and attachments found within the compromised. Oh three sixty five accounts. The p. t. is believed to have access to compromised accounts from approximately may seventh to december twenty seventh twenty twenty. The compromised data included all sent received and stored emails and attachments found within those accounts. During that time and quote it was of course email accounts that were compromised and the bbc citing conversations with former prosecutors said that us attorneys personnel commit a great deal of sensitive material to email usa today quotes former. Prosecutor is saying quote. I don't remember ever having someone. Bring me a document instead of emailing it to me. Because of security concerns and quote with the exception of certain classified material although transmits recovery from the ransomware attack it sustained is well underway and port services in south africa have returned the cyber attack effects continue to linger in the supply chain asia fruit reports that deliveries of fresh produce have been significantly disrupted and automotive logistics finds similar stresses in auto parts shipments the record reports that extortionists who hit electronic arts. Last month failed to either get the game maker to pay ransom or defined third parties willing to buy the files. They stole during their attack. Last week they dumped some seven hundred fifty one gigabytes of compressed. Ea data onto an underground forum from where the data have been circulated to various torrent streams data which includes game source code. Mostly no customer data appear to have been at risk. The source code leaked includes the widely played and popular fifa twenty-one soccer game. The hackers seem to misjudged their market. The attack came to light on june tenth when those who claimed responsibility for the incident posted a note in an underworld market announcing that they were in possession of ea data which a buyer could have for twenty eight million dollars. No one apparently bit giving up on finding a buyer. The criminals then contacted ea with an offer not to publish the stolen data. Ea wasn't interested either so the thieves gave up and simply dumped the code online looking elsewhere in the criminal. Marketplace security firm recorded future also thinks it sees a decline in double extortion from the highs it reached in december double extortion of course is encryption to render data unavailable and threats to release the data. If not paid. It may be that. This second threat isn't really paying off for them. Recorded futures allen liska said quote ransomware actors came up with this whole system that they thought would encourage people to pay and us researchers and journalists lapped it up and said it made perfect sense. But we've seen over time. That companies don't really suffer consequences if their data winds up on extortion sites. Ransomware actors aren't always the psychological geniuses we think they are and quote. It pro speculated recently that there may be signs. The ransomware operators were growing a conscience. This seems wildly and unreasonably optimistic to us but the criminal market has shifted with black matter. Apparently picking up where dark side and are evil left off and d'appel payment rebranded as grief the criminal. The criminal market remains lively. Security firm kayla has been tracking the recent fortunes of initial access brokers in this hot subsector of crime there report on initial access brokers released. This morning discerns five trends. In this criminal. The criminal market i. The pricing of initial access is based on the size of the company compromised and the level of privilege. The broker has achieved within the network quote the average price for network access during july twenty twenty through june twenty. Twenty one was fifty four hundred. Us dollars while the median price was one thousand dollars twenty five percent of the listings posted for sale were confirmed to be sold by initial access brokers. Second there's a growing diversification in the kinds of access being hawked kayla says quote the term network access is very loosely defined threat actors. Use it to describe multiple different vectors permission levels and entry points and quote. Rdp and vpn access remained the most common offerings some of the newer attack vectors being sold seemed to represent me too ism in which criminals follow the trail blazed by intelligence services in such compromises as those that afflicted solar winds and cassia and third. It appears that some of the more successful initial access brokers are becoming quiet. But this doesn't mean they're fading away or going to ground quote it doesn't necessarily mean that initial access brokers suspended. Their activity rather kayla concluded that the decrease is due to the fact that iab's simply moved part of the deals to private correspondence with middlemen or rent somewhere affiliates in an effort to avoid detection from researchers and law enforcement agencies and quote the fourth trend kayla calls a growth in professional ethics. That is there. Seems to be a tendency for some of the brokers to avoid selling access to for example healthcare organizations kayla says quote as some ransomware gangs such as dark side promise not to target certain sectors new ethics seem to be established among actors participating in the ransomware as a service economy depending on the gangs. They were seen forbidding their affiliates to attack healthcare government education and nonprofit sectors to not cause damage to patients students citizens and other categories of people. The ransomware gang seemed to pass a message. They hunt only companies and aim only for.

So let's stay with today's news for a minute. Mary janey This morning you formally announced a free bus pilot. It's the twenty eight bus links roxbury dorchester and madam. It's going to be free for three months beginning on august. Twenty ninth. why this bus. And how will the program work. Well i was so excited to announce this pilot this morning. This has been something. I've been advocating or for number of years. This particular bus route is the most Used bus route in the entire in. Bt a network it has the largest ridership on it is also a major economic order of blue hill. Avenue connects three busy main street districts in madison square grove hall and nubian square. It is also an area The neighborhoods that are covered there. Also neighborhoods where Some of the lower income residents of our city resigned and their main mode of transportation Our buses and we know that this is also an equity issue. And so what we hope to do with. This pilot is certainly offers economic relief for residents. Who ride the twenty eighth less but also to learn from this pilot to see how all door boarding could help with the speed in which buses travel through our streets Seeing if this increases ridership we certainly need more people to seek out other alternatives as opposed to writing in cars. And so i. I was just really excited to offer this pilot. I hope we are able to take this and expanded to other bus routes. He is so. I was going to ask you about that.

"For me. Rachel it was the worst. Moment of mr putin's press conference today to compare the peaceful organization that mr navalny heads which is fighting corruption with those that use violence to storm are capital. One side is fighting peacefully for democracy. The other side is doing the exact opposite. that's classic putin what aboutism. But here's another dimension. He's siding with mr trump and the people that support mr trump and i think people forget that yes. There is a battle between democratic states and autocratic states president rightly spoke about that today throughout this trip. But there's also a battle within states between democrats and autocrats. There's a fight going on in russia and there's also a fight going on in the united states of america and by the way and other european countries as well and that's the kind of linkage. Putin thinks he's fighting an ideological battle. He's doing that on purpose. To rally supporters and tragically. It's having some success in europe and in the united states as well michael mcfaul who was. Us ambassador to russia under president obama who prepare president biden for this meeting today with president. Putin mr ambassador. Thank you for your time tonight. Particularly given the very late hour and how long this has been thanks very much all always get up or stay up for you rachel. Thanks for having me. You're very kind all right. We'll be right back. Stay with us is interesting today. On voting rights there's only one democrat in the senate who isn't cosponsoring. The big voting rights. Bill the senate bill one the for the people act forty nine fifty. Democratic senators are on board with it. But not joe manchin of west virginia earlier this month he of course published an op. Ed saying he wouldn't vote for it. If no republicans would vote for the neither. Would he the senate. Republican leader has said in fact not a single republican vote for a voting rights. Bill so that would seem to be the end of that but then today interesting news. Senator mansion today released a list. What he called a compromise proposal voting rights a list of things that he likes and that he apparently thinks could get lots of republicans support he then. Noisily held a meeting with eight republican senators to discuss his proposal on voting rights. The problem here though is the math. Say for argument's sake that all the democrats give everything. He wants this bill. They all agree to still vote for it. Even though there's a bunch of stuff in there the democrats don't like and said that mentioned. Miraculously convinces all eight of these republican senators. He's meeting with. They also support the bill. That would still not be enough votes to pass it over a republican filibuster even under the unrealistically auspicious circumstances. I've just described unless senator mentioned is willing to change the senate rules so that at least voting rights bills can't be filibustered. He's proposing this compromise. For absolutely nothing senator mitch and says he wants to pass a voting rights bill. The math doesn't work though and the coverage of this should reflect that. Watch this that is going to do it for us tonight. I will see you again right here tomorrow night. The show weeknights at nine eastern on msnbc..
