"valerie plame" Discussed on Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry

"We've got such a special episode lined up today in the new book shattered Glass Kelly Stanley of nasty women press brought together essays from so many remarkable women and she's brought two of them here with her today from nineteen ninety, three to two, thousand, Seventeen Barbara Boxer represented California in the United States Senate where she was a hero for women's Rights Valerie Plame served as an undercover agent in the CIA protecting our national interests until she was ousted by senior members of the Bush administration. All three of these remarkable women joined me for a very spirited discussion enjoy. My social security payroll contribution will go up as will donald's assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it But what we WANNA do is to replenish the. Fund not to sexist because we're way past that we're talking about sexual predatory type behavior from Donald Trump, I worked on behalf the national security of our country. On behalf of the people of the United. States. Until my name and true affiliation were exposed in the national media on July fourteenth two thousand and three. When I turn on the television I, don't know if it's twenty fifteen or nineteen fifty. Donald Trump's. Women have had with guys like. I'm Barbara Boxer. I'm hoping to make a citizen's arrest of Donald Trump for endangering American lives. Sorry but not sorry. Hi I'm Valerie Plame and I helped protect America's national security by preventing nuclear annihilation with the CIA. Sorry, not sorry. My name is Kelly Stanley and I fight for human and civil rights through writing and. Books that matter. Sorry, not sorry. So Kelly I want to start with you telling me a little bit about Nasty Women Press. How did you start? What is your mission? How'd you come up with a name on November ninth, which was one of the worst days of my life and probably one of the worst days of all of our lives I looked around and I saw my friends unable to come to grasp with what had happened. You know what had happened to our country. I had this idea and it just came to me that we're GONNA obviously need to resist. We're going to need to commit resources time an our life's blood and energy into really fighting. What I knew was going to be a fascist regime I knew that during trump's primary run because he was using Hitler's playbook then and I knew that it was only GonNa get worse so I thought sometimes the Easiest thing to do for people is resisting within a way that they're already accustomed to in other words when you're asked to do something that's extraordinary. That's out of your wheelhouse. It can be uncomfortable for people. Some people can't march some people can't go door to door some people can't text or telephone. But what if you can resist by doing what you normally do if you are an actress, you can resist they're acting if you're a writer. You resist the writing. If you're a reader, you resist through the act of actually reading, and so it came to me this idea for creative resistance of trying to engage other writers that I know friends like Valerie Senator Boxer Nice share, wonderful agent. Kimberly Cameron and senator agreed to participate people that I know, Jackie Speier who is a top notch mystery rider and Lamont the people in our book were contacts and friends that I said look. Let's. Get together and do something I analysts make an anthropology so that we have is wide range of materials possible and reach as many people's possible and we're going to have a few goals number one we want to give people hope who are in places that they're not going to feel like if you're in the Blue Island in a red state, you may feel very isolated but a book and reading that book can give you hope they. Can make you feel a know that you're not alone and therefore encourage you to keep resisting to keep fighting because that's what we're going to need to do. It's been a long for years. Second Point is we wanted every anthology that we do, and of course, this is the first one to raise money for what is sure to be an endangered nonprofit. The one we chose I presently was planned parenthood because again, seeing the writing on the. Wall unfortunately Senator Boxer's freedom of Choice Act was not signed into law which meant that it was open season on women's right to choose as soon as trump got into power. So I thought this is a good place to start. Let's build the book and have it kind of theme and that theme than is it related to the nonprofit were raising money for example, this book shattering glass are I the scene as female empowerment and we are. Obviously, raising money through every sale of this book because everything has been donated. So everything's going to planned parenthood both domestic and international and planned parenthood is that 'cause we wanted to associate with female empowerment. The second book that we do will probably be on immigration and it will more than likely go to the ACLU. So that's what we see as our mission. The name Nasty woman press came about because I was thinking about Hillary that day. Am I really wanted to use the singular nasty woman because I wanted everyone to think about their inner nasty women, the men who? Work, with this as well, you know it's symbolic. It's the nasty woman that we want to be as well as a nasty woman unfortunately did not get into the White House it's such a great time stamp as well that name nasty women press like you know exactly what point in history this is unfolding in, which allows the really really cool and our secondary tagline is creative resistance and also storytelling is such A. Tool especially, in these days I mean Valerie you start your essay in the book with a sentence there is a war on women in the United States of America that sentence is so powerful and you've been right at the center of that war. Can you tell us a little bit about what the phrase war on women means to you? Thank you Lissa at first of all. I am so honored to be part of this company of just such kick ass women each in your own respective fields Warren woman. This has been a long time coming, but it really crystallized I would say November twenty sixteen but we all felt it. We saw it enough already the women's march in January twenty seventeen that brought hundreds of thousands of women to the Mall I love the signs that said I. Did this and nineteen, sixty eight and I have to do this again but change has been far too slow the only. Perhaps a silver lining in the trump administration has been truly the awakening of what Kelly was talking about a sense of resistance of creativity I've got to come off the sidelines and do whatever we can and senator boxer, of course, already legendary service for our country I served with the CIA and that's why I ran for Congress again. For nearly. Twenty years. Valerie Plame worked under cover of darkness serving her country as a covert CIA agent. But in two thousand and three that cover was blown by members of the Bush administration in retaliation for her husband former ambassador Joe Wilson's editorial at question the evidence of weapons of mass destruction used.

This is number eight, the story Lewis Scooter, Libby Chief of staff to Vice President Dick. Cheney. On the morning of July fourteen, th two, thousand, three, forty year old Valerie wilsons slept in. Her husband Joe was already awake caring for their toddler twins. It had been a long hard week for the family. Valerie awoke to the center freshly brewed coffee on her nightstand. Joe was standing beside the bed holding a copy of the Washington, post As she blinked herself awake in sip the coffee. Valerie heard her husband's say, well, the SOB did it. When Valerie opened the paper she saw her own name, her maiden name Valerie Plame It was on the OP ED page in Robert Novak's column. For most people, this would be a strange surprise but not a life changing one for Valerie, though seeing her name in the column, felt like having a gun held to her head. She fought the urge to run into her twins room and hold them tight. It occurred to her that she might never feel safe again. Valerie.

"I love that sentiment. It reminds me that it's on us that it requires it requires all us. Do you think that we're doing a good enough job of that today. Do you see enough citizen. push-back back does does the resistance inspire you. Well I'm going to revert to Benjamin Franklin great quote so when he stepped outside side of the convention he was asked by women. Oh Mr Franklin Dr Franklin what kind of government have you bequeathed us and his reply was a republic madam if you can keep it. So it's on us. The onus is on us to question our government. Whistle blowers are a very important aspect of that to point out when there's corruption wrongdoing incompetence. pedants trump right now is really a symptom of underlying problems with our erosion. I mean he's you as much as we many any of US would like to. You can't put all the blame his feet. A lot of this had been happening for a long time and we were not paying attention. We patting ourselves on the back because we elected a black acknowledge president was so you know how you know how great and it was great for that aspect but there are many other aspects on our democracy that were being being chipped away at and not least of which is in fact maybe the biggest is citizens united which has to be the worst supreme court decision ever and and We have just gobs of dark money pouring into the political system and it just distorts everything and neither neither side neither side is willing to actually address it in any meaningful way. Yeah it makes me excited. You know the the A group representing us. Yeah yeah they do some really wonderful work for for anybody. WHO's listening there? There's some great groups out there. They're doing you know I. I'm not totally in despair. Nobody thought to be really practical. In real about how great the threat to the nation is and then I think for so many of us you know who in our own individuals fears feel helpless organizations like that when represent us that have eighty seven percent. Bipartisan support to get dark money out of politics to start eradicating this corruption. That makes me feel hopeful because I think to myself Supreme Court is going to be so partisan as to defend and appalled citizens united maybe it really is on us to start these grassroots movements and and change it from the bottom up you know I do. I believe in us and I get excited when we wake up. And it's it's why I'm so excited to you know support your congressional run and I can't say Jews hot come oh to Santa Fe anytime Santa Fe's one of my favorite places on earth. I'm also curious because as you know. We've we've touched on your book and for everyone listening. If you haven't read Valerie's booked yourself favorites it's amazing but I I was so struck looking at it that CIA centers blacked out about ten percent of the copy and redacted it so as you're reading the book there are just chunks missing that say redacted redoubts in the beginning. Yeah Yeah but but it's but it's wild to when you begin looking at it to go. Wow this is what it's like to to work in this arena. Are there still the things that you want to say. But you can't I have of course there are things that you take a secrecy oath and you always and that's forever. I would never do anything to jeopardize the assets with whom I had worked the very sensitive covert action programs and and I have no. That's that's the deal and I'm fine with that. It does feel good that I feel that in some ways I really have found my voice and there is something satisfying If I am given the honor of going to Washington of being able to say you know I lived through this I survived vives and now I can go back to Washington and set some work on things that I care about deeply and there's a certain a certain satisfaction to that. I love that and one thing. I realized that we didn't touch on so specifically earlier. Is the issue around around your then husband Ambassador Wilson being sent to Niger. There was there were accusations of nepotism that you had you know recommended him even though in your letter. You said I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that. He could assist STI- I wouldn't send him. It's this is. This is a little too close to home. How did that all play out just for people who don't know the incremental tells of in your area brief? I had nothing to do with his trip to Asia for anyone who has ever worked for the government knows that there is about four layers of approvals approvals when in in terms of travel. It's just ridiculous. It's ridiculous he went pro Bono. He only his travel was paid for I. I had nothing nothing whatsoever to do with his trip. Asking him to go other than going home and saying. Hey there's some people you know my boss awesome the CIA would like you to come in and and talk to you about a sensitive topic It was just another Republican talking point. Yes nepotism Tisza. GimMe a break like the irony. Nizhny air is such a garden spot. Right I'm sorry. It's literally the poorest country in the world it's absurd but because because the Republicans had the power to form the narrative for so long that still pops up you know just like no not really and it was never part of the story and it's gotTa feel so odd knowing that we we we laud this idea of service families but then as new both were then to two members of a family who were both in service to the government you then got raked over the coals for that rather within celebrated for the fact both were succeeding in your own verticals and of course there's bound to be some sort of overlap if you worked in the same building you'd run into your spouse in the office but that doesn't mean that you're in cahoots to be in that office. You're already there. Of course not it was just they were. They were grasping at straws draws and of course they were way more powerful than we were at that time so their narrative stuck whether it was. Oh everyone knew who Valerie was. I mean she wasn't even covert or that. Joe Wilson. He's such a loud mouth or Valerie. Sent Joe Jr share so that a year and a half later he could write this. Op Ed piece. It's just fantastical right but if you have the power the narrative it's pretty pretty significant. And what a valuable lesson for us. Now when when we look at the current administration and we think about accusations of nepotism and you see jared and vodka holding positions in the White House with dangerous effect exhibit A.. It's horrifying vodka jared. Yikes that's indeed. That is that is a big. Yikes for me And it makes me nervous to that. Neither of them passed their background. Checks for Security Kirti clearances. But we're already seriously by trump anyway. That is outrageous but every that was like a story for forty eight hours. And everyone's just moves on. I mean there's so much news as it were so totally overwhelmed with news that we can't even absorb and digest things like that until you're onto the next crazy. Yes that's something. I wish the media was doing a better job of stop focusing on the noise and focus on the news and keep beating the drum of why oh. I did to people who are completely unqualified and failed background. Checks by our national security agencies. Why were they giving security clearances anyway away? That's Joe knowing that you're right the signal in the noise were missing her missing it again. This is why I'm excited that that you're running. There's one question I like to ask. Everyone by title of the podcast is called work in progress. And I'm curious when you hear that phrase what comes to mind is a work in progress in Your Life Right now oh great question patients. I'm always I'm so impatient and time has taught me that it can be healing that things change things that you are. What's good now might not? That'd be good later. And what's bad now will change but it's still a fight icon. I just wish I had more of it and could take get more expansive view. It's just not how I'm wired all the all the meditative breathing in the world will not actually It's better but that is my work in progress. News patients with myself and with others. Yeah I feel that and I I think especially when you are concerned with the world and when you have that spirit of fighting for the world and you impatience comes along with it you want. Things is to be better faster. And.

"Explanation on the spot and the the police come in your you know naked in bed. Okay that you know so I guess that was the right answer because I did Komo. You get hired. Wow yeah universal languages. I suppose And and you. Obviously you're getting asked questions like this. You have to take tests as well. Can you share. What any of those are they? I Q tests aptitude tests casts technical. Everything of the verse test was sort of general current events and I remember and I always loved to read the paper so it wasn't wasn't a big deal for me. I mean I just kept up on this stuff. But there is a question of something about the Congo. And there's actually Congo's in Africa so I was like well which you know which Congo the Democratic Republic of Congo or the and. So I feel good. I mean I was as as sometimes you can be very nonchalant about it because I didn't I didn't know at at that time how much I wanted it and sometimes that leads to just being relaxed in doing your best so one one test led to another sort of thing. Wow and then you get an. How do they tell you? You're in to get a phone call from someone to someone show up at your door. I think a letter. I think a letter. This is snail mail days right this long before email right so you find out you're in and then you have to report to Langley takeover. Ju Yeah to actually no I. I do all the intake at a outlying building. And that's a big you know you're you're I can't remember. I guess it was before. So you've already taken your polygraph and you've had all these tests but there still was a big process and there were a lot of people in my class If that were being brought in that were noted to be going off into different parts of the agency whether as an analyst or whatever got it and so you get in you have to report somewhere to begin. Whatever you're training is What do you tell all your friends and your family because you can't tell them you're in the CIA now right no of course not they give you they give you a cover from the beginning and and there's all sorts of covers? There's a spectrum I should say on one end there's business where you're not affiliated with the US government at all. Aw and on the other end it's where you would have State Department cover. You can tell your friends well. I I'm a Foreign Service officer when in fact you really a CIA officer Sir. Wow and there's a lot of covers in between but yeah I mean they they they take care of for that okay they they help you plans to say wow and I've heard it referenced and I. It's no shock to read that you know the CIA was originally kind of an old boys club. One hundred percent. Absolutely what was it like to step into that environment and and over the course of your career. Have you seen that begin to change at all. Yeah so totally. The Old Boys Club Yale Harvard Princeton it did I would say it really did not begin to break open open until the late eighties. And they're still a long ways to go so finally. There is a female director Gina Hassle. Finally and I believe I don't I think to the three directorates are headed by women which is Great. But that doesn't mean it's all everything's great of of course it's still well. I think still very much. A man's world like everywhere else There was a class action suit brought by women in the early nineties that said and they want it that women were simply not being promoted. They were not being given good assignments assignments that would allow them to be promoted to the next level and so forth and it was pervasive. It might be a little better now but takes awhile to changes Angie's huge bureaucracies. Sure sure you've also talked about how when you joined the CIA. At that time. No one would mention or talk about their politics. How is that changing or is that still a requirement to keep your personal political beliefs to yourself? You've never requirement. It was simply how people did things. Oh inviolate say honestly. I just noticed a huge change not not just in the CIA but across the board of how people spoke about their politics. After the two thousand contested election Bush v Gore prior to that people it was maybe sound so old fashioned but people. You know you don't talk about religion sex politics at a dinner party. You just Kinda Uh of course. There are exceptions to that right but it it was like that Supreme Court decision that gave Bush presidency in two thousand cracked something in open and I think by and large just by the nature of it many of the people in the CIA tend to be conservative. You know they're military but of course everything has been upended in recent years there are no real Republicans left. I mean my. I was raised in a Republican house else which meant strong fiscal policy strong defense and and the social issues were never even touched on so different than where we are today. What do you when you say? There are no Republicans left like the parents who you were raised by Eh. WH- what do you. What do you see in the party now? What what's what's the most shocking to you about the way things are going at the moment the most the most shocking thing to me is that elected leaders in the GOP who should know better who do know better or saying and doing nothing? They are truly putting party above country. And it's not just elected official officials in my mind. It's also leaders of faith business leaders and so forth because the flagrant of use abuse of power that we are seeing by trump far goes far beyond partisan politics. There's no Republican Party left. What do they stand for? Definitely not fiscal responsibility. The deficit has ballooned remember when Dr Obama Arizona. How terrible terrible? The deficit is far bigger now and no one says anything it used to be. The Republican Party really stayed out of social issues. I thought though I mean they're so intellectually dishonest disingenuous. Don't even get me started. They believe on one hand. The government government should stay out of your business except as my girlfriend likes to say the government the GOP wants to be in my vagina in other words deeply within our decisions. What women's decisions should be concerning choice and so forth and I think this started? This trend started under Reagan. Talking about the so-called moral majority and realizing that they could add on the Evangelical 's our court them as a voting voting block and so where we are now is we have the evangelical 's that are so strongly behind trump who see him if I hear here imperfect vessel one more time and scream But I don't see anything about what he does or what. His policies are especially being on a border state than anywhere resembles. What Jesus might do right? That's the amongst us is that faith is being used. It's like a baseball bat. To bully for power has nothing to do with faith. It has nothing to do with nothing. It has nothing to do with the gentle loving demeanor that Jesus represents in evangelical firmament and and I just I find the the hypocrisy to be outrageous. Yeah it's wild to me how how transparent at all is and how no one is willing to admit that what we're seeing is what we're seeing and you hear people like trump and Giuliani Johnny and his cronies literally say things like the truth isn't truth. Don't trust you see on TV listened to me. I mean it's GonNa Trust me or your lying eyes yeah it's really. It's really frightening to me. And it's an odd thing. When to your point you see people who who purport to have any kind of faith Behave so greedily and and and people be so shortsighted and and even you know. I had this debate recently. Only about our healthcare system in our education system you know and I said the fact that we supposedly can't pay to take care of our own but we can and find a six hundred billion dollar surplus surplus not even budget surplus for the military and I said that money's not going to career service members that money's not going do our men and women in uniform it's not paying for new. Kevlar for uniformed officer. It's always where you put your money tells. was you wear your priorities are. It's very simple. Yeah and it's so it's very it's very strange to me and and it's interesting that you point to the Bush Gore election is as the tipping point. I watched a documentary about it not too long ago and and really getting to see the inside of it and getting to see. The Supreme Court just stopped proper investigation into the election. An handed power over. I think so many people felt so oh Jerry and betrayed. It was such a betrayal of our of our Constitution. And we're seeing it again indeed. I had held the Supreme Court in such Such high standing and to find out that they were as base partisan as as everyone else was really painful realization. That's a hard one. What does it feel like because it's close in timing To what happened to you in two thousand two when you see how petty and partisan people can be people who are supposed to be above the fray and really put country pantry over party in really put America first regardless of their personal feelings about anybody in it when you went through what you did in two thousand and two which led to your exposure which was a threat to your life to be clear for people listening running in two thousand and three for for listeners. Who Don't know what you went through then? Could you walk us through your experience. I'll I'll do my best to make it brief and what happened was in July two thousand and three my then husband. Joe Wilson wrote Ed piece for The New York Times titled what I do not find in Africa and he went after the central premise that the bush whitehouse gave for the war in Iraq which was an imminent nuclear threat. And he wrote that. The intelligence had been cherry-picked and intelligence. He's had been fitted around the policy rather than the policy being made based on exactly see that the that it had all it was and it was a terrible foreign policy mistake dake the Bush White House did not take that well and a week later a conservative columnist Robert Novak who is gone now now revealed my name and my true. CIA identity in his syndicated column and so began a years. Long crazy crazy political firestorm. We were called Joe And I were called Liars and traitors and it was it was really quite a searing life experience and then that Chapter I would say ended in two thousand seven with a conviction of scooter libby. Abi Who was Vice President Cheney's chief of staff and in fact he and he was he was just pardoned last year by trump not that trump trump has any idea really who he is sending a message to his squad. That if you support me protect me I'll protect you and a specific message edge that if you support trump over the intelligence community which disastrous recourse for the nation. You'll get pardoned and it won't matter that you sold out your country exactly because because this idea that a conservative columnist would break your cover. Reveal your true identity. Reveal your position within the CIA. That quite literally put you in your husbands lives at risk potentially children's lives at risk the the idea the our most valued undercover service people could be the victims of hit jobs by conservative media. I mean that's that's a really egregious. I consider as a person who spent a lot of time with armed armed servicemen in both the police departments and in the military that to me. That feels treasonous to me. That feels it was treasonous tennis. I would agree. It was wrong. It was absolutely wrong what happened. This is a betrayed my CIA identified for their partisan agenda quite very very simple. And and because you are then husband held them accountable for lying to the American public. So right so it's values. Well you said that a lot. He's like you need to hold your government to account for their words and deeds. Yeah so he after that. That was two thousand seven and and the day after I moved out to New Mexico. Can we started our new life.

"And people will be getting charged Sukhumi is on the offensive. That's why he was running around doing all these TV shows this week. That's why CNN came whole our big townhall. Good news is the ratings are in. It was a total disaster. Total bomb in the ratings. Nobody's interested even the CNN audience. Can't listen the Komi anymore. So that's good news. You know who thinking of running for office. You member? Valerie plame. Joe Wilson this was it was like, you know, how they use that gold star family to start trouble with Trump. This was the same thing with Bush tried to use this family against Bush a lot of the Iraq war. Valerie plame was outed by Richard Armitage. But they claim to his scooter Libby. They've got him on it. Valerie plame in claimed. She was covert CIA age. She had been at one time. But when she was outed. She was not a covert CIA age despite what they claimed in court. She was at that time working at CI headquarters in Langley Virginia. So anybody watching would notice everyday she leaves her house, and drives to see I quarters and at five o'clock, she leaves the CIA headquarters and drives out of the Bill. So it was not a covert operative. But she's going to run for congress right now. She lives in New Mexico. She wants to run from New Mexico. And the problem here. She's got some real anti-semites semitism problems. She has a history of tweeting some really ugly antisemitic nonsense. The big problem. Although maybe not for Democrats. They seem to be just a packed with anti-semites a bunch of them in congress. So and if he wins the nomination in her district, it's pretty much democratic that almost guarantees her winning. But again, you have another anti Semite in congress. If you go to my Twitter, you can see put up some of the ugly antisemitic things tweeted by Valerie plame, some of which she doubled down on when there was controversy. But it's an interesting ratios and announced official yet. But keep an eye on that. We got lots coming up. Michael Goodwin will be with us in a few minutes. Hey, check out the webpage. A lot of great stuff up here. This is a great video. It's a baby boomer battling a millennial watch this fight. It's pretty good. And we miss Hillary. We hope she runs again. But just for a little style. G here's some of Hillary's ugliest moments. You know, she's got a real temper ever sear when she loses her temper what's the moments together.

"Until valerie plame this was considered a treasonous act no one would ever ever out a clandestine service officer and agent who was being handled and fbi confidential informant but polit for political purposes and it needs to go back to that because this is dangerous not just democracy but to our national security this could kill americans and for them to actually believe that the political expedience is worth outing these people they will harm this nation of in the long run and you meet somebody who did this work as a double agent would could you ever in your wildest imagination have imagined that one of the rift he were taking was that you would run afoul politically of some political party and that members of that party would seek to reveal your identity merely to protect a fellow member of their party it's creativity is craig easy to schalke you know it's one of the things that disturbs me the most look when i in two thousand fifteen well before donald trump actually decided to run for president or was anywhere in the public spectrum here i actually wrote a book and we went to the fbi the book sold as a movie we had all this publicity went to the fbi we said look this is a this is now a public story will you comment on that and they came back and said we'd we'd very much like to it's a positive sore puts that good light but we don't comment on human operations just not something we do and that is something they take very very seriously because it has ramifications beyond just you and i think that not only is it putting this person danger but it's putting other people in danger if there are spies if there are people out there that are collecting intelligence and very sensitive matter they're gonna come back and look at this and say well maybe i don't wanna work for the us government so not only are you putting their lives in jeopardy you're actually potentially cutting off our ability to prut and retain people who are providing really important national security level intelligence to us it's shocking it's damaging it's it's infuriating it's all i can say about that and meanwhile we're now as we find out more.

"Scooter libby was dick cheney's chief of staff and he was prosecuted in two thousand seven basically for obstructing patrick fitzgerald investigation into the circumstances around the leak of valerie plame there in in libya's notes he recorded cheney ordering him to leak classified information to new york times reporter judy miller and judy miller said that he had id valerie plame to him so there was good reason to believe that dick cheney had ordered libby to leak among other things valerie plame id and libby lied about it that's what he was prosecuted for before he went to prison in two thousand seven bush george bush commuted his sentence meaning he didn't have to serve the sentence but he didn't pardon him and that was key because libby therefore couldn't be called in having having been excused from any legal jeopardy in the case too testify further about what dick cheney did and what george bush did since then in the eleven year since then libby has gotten his law licence back he's gotten his right to vote back so the the remaining punishment for having been found guilty of a felony those punishments were done so what the pardon did on friday was nothing functional to libya's life it did not affect not improve libya's life in any material way but what it did just as michael cohen was was is being investigated by the fbi what it did is make it clear to people like michael cohen like paul manafort like a bunch of other people in the white house that trump is happy to excuse people who break the law to protect a president and i think that was the message that was the reason he did it scooter libby probably made this country less safe in in what he did at the behest of dick cheney and paul manafort michael cohen probably made this country less safe and how they've been protecting donald trump as well and donald trump i think sent a message that says you know i will do what i can to excuse you for anything that you do to protect me i don't think it'll work because the people who are protecting him in our in a lot more kinds of legal jeopardy than scooter libby was eleven years ago but i think that's the message she was trying to send well marcia willer i want to.

"His administration to develop some sort of plan to change the system at very well could impact amazon as a company although amazon is not singled out by name in the text of the executive order and the second piece brian is a part in the president's planning to pardon scooter libby we all remember that name from the two thousand seven trial involving the former covert cia agent valerie plame and scooter libby was convicted of obstruction of justice and of making false statements and perjury now he was he was not pardoned by president george w bush at the time although his prison sentence was commuted so he did not have to serve any time in jail but he was not ever pardoned by bush trump has decided has told people inside the white house that he will pardon libby and libya's important because he was a top aide top national security advisor to then vice president dick cheney so joyce i won't ask you to come out on amazon which is probably big enough to be able to say you know what we're good we'll form our own postal service by the trucks and the planes and hire the people but on scooter libby philip just touched on it why answer this question no one was was asking why scooter libby why now well i think that we'll have to draw the obvious conclusion libby was convicted in two thousand and seven ironically by a special counsel who was appointed by jim komi of all people and scooter libby was convicted of perjury of obstruction of justice and of lying to the fbi his sentence was commuted there's no urgency to fire him at this particular moment in time and it's really hard to miss how strongly this reeks of being a signal that trump is willing to issue a pardon for these particular types of crimes to someone who had this high level of standing inside of the white house almost as though it's a message to paul manafort or to mike flynn in in many ways feels like the circle of policy and this administration is fully completed this point with trump starting out complaining about hillary clinton and potential release of classified material and now pardon.
