Josh Crasher joins us from National Journal's talk about Joe Biden and his failures to be bipartisan. They continue. I'm Vince colonies alongside Mary Walter. Always capable of being bipartisan. Oh, you're so sweet. Thank you. Good morning, Joe Biden and, of course, the administration's flushing out. And they're either you're going to start to see some names here. Some names that you recognize. Shall we go through some of them Just for fun. Let's start with Jake Sullivan, Jake Sullivan in the Biden administration as Biden's national security advisor. Now, why does that name sound familiar? Well, he had his name popped up a lot during the Hillary Clinton email. Scandal. Remember that first of all, he in? 08 was an adviser to Hillary Clinton during the primary cycle, And then he went back to President Barack Obama's general election campaign, and he may be prepared both Clinton Obama for debates he worked in the Obama administration is deputy assistant to the president and national security adviser to The vice president Joe Biden. So Joe Biden knows him and Joe Bynes bringing back people he knows. Have you noticed that like people he knows people he worked with. He's bringing them all back to me. He started the drummer that they passed around. He just keeps playing for all the different bands. Yeah, he left administration in August 2014 to teach yet Yale Law School on Now he's over at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, but he his knee Came up a lot during the pedestrians imparted the Podesta emails released by Wikileaks during the 2016 presidential election cycle. We all remember that, Hey, questioned if Democrat primary candidate Martin O'Malley's 100% clean energy by 2050 Pant plan was realistic, that was one of the emails that came out and after the election, he confessed to feeling quote a keen sense of responsibility for Hillary Clinton's defeat. Uh, on s own under November 22nd of 2020. He was announced as I said to be the national security advisor for Joe Biden and he loves war, too. By the way, he's a big, you know, Arm the Syrian rebels guy. He's like he's He's that when we talk about like war hawks and people who get us in a messy foreign entanglements, Jake Sullivan is straight out of central casting for that. Okay. Well, that's good. Maybe one too many video games. Yeah, he loves sending Americans off the work. Great. Lovely. Fantastic. All right. Well, let's move on. Let's go to Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland. She had ties to why do we know her name? Christopher Steele and Russia, Russia Russia She's a former assistant secretary of state on She said. I did not. I actively chose not to be part of that briefing well in February of last year, she told space, the nation that in 2016 Steel Steel quote past two of four pages off short points of what he was finding in our immediate reaction to it was, this is not in our purview, but rather a matter for the FBI. So she knew a lot more than what she was saying when it came to Christopher Steele. So she was involved, and that's how we know her name because she was involved in that whole scandal and farm or as I said, But you know, this is what's so maddening to be on a side note here when it comes to this whole Christopher Steele dossier spying on President Trump All of that there's so much that keeps coming out of people who lied under oath. Uh huh. And none of them go to jail, and none of them are punished. Kevin Kline Smith. Probation if he had an R, after his neighbor was associated with Trump. He be cooling his feet in in jail for for many, many months. That's for sure, especially when you had trump affiliates who were charged with laws that don't even get charged Traditionally in Washington, Foreign Agent Registration Act type things. I mean, like they're people who literally are doing jail time for things that people have done in Washington forever. But because they were says he'd with Trump. They got busted. And now, as you said, I mean, it really comes down to who's what's party. Are you working to the advantage of? If it's the Democrats? The likeliness of you facing any meaningful punishment goes down substantially. And Victoria Nuland you're just talking about. She was one of the key boosters of foreign disinformation. She facilitated Russian lies about Donald Trump, infecting the United States government in order to undermine the legitimacy of a duly elected presidency for years. So all of this talk about like threats to democracy and fermenting chaos is spreading disinformation. Victoria Nolan was a central figure in that very act. Now she's being rewarded. Yet again. Yeah. And, of course and and Susan rice. We know her, which is why you really, really want to spend a lot of time on Susan Wright. She have Benghazi and it was a video and she made the rounds of all those morning talk shows and perpetuated that lie. She's back as well, of course. Yeah, And let's just goes on and on and on and very quickly. One Maura name. You don't know Julin, A porter. She's the State Department's deputy spokesperson. And in 2016 and a Facebook post. She claimed that the largest threat to the U. S National security are the cops. Yeah, So now, she said the State Department. That's great. That's great. I'm glad glad she'll be representing us. It's for the for the entire planet, telling people that you know the real problem are people who enforce the law in the United States. It's going to be a really, really, really, really long, four years. That's all I'm going to say 5 43 w E Mail.

"Having me so this report that you are putting out is quite unusual in the tracking and tracing the accounts of a massacre that you think happened through specifically the injuries on victims is that correct that's right we're using our skills to document the forensic the scientific and medical evidence of these injuries and abuses to report out the truth of what really happened what do the the wounds the scars the injuries tell you about that day in paean well the tell us the the accounts that others have surfaced that civilians are group of civilians in a village where attacked by both the military and by buddhists were kind buddhist civilians that in fact what we see is that children women and men were subject to horrific types of injuries including a blunt force trauma injuries from gunshots burns other types of injuries that when we examine the forensic truth in each individual injury we see that this clearly did not appear to be any kind of antiterror operation that this was a systematic attack on civilians using guns using knives using sexual violence other types of illegal and really horrific physical physical attack so don't feel we're going to put up to images of scars that you found and photographed on a seventeen year old row ingeborg and this is what you say oh he said that he sustained these wounds from an explosive device while fleeing should into a nearby field and then apparently he told you all that he had to travel for almost twelve days on foot trying to flee twelve days on foot to neighboring bangladesh which is where we know no a lot of the rohingya have have ended up in refugee camps that phillips in his story a little bit more and how difficult must've been to travel with those wounds by foot well i think that this story and others like it show first of all the horrific physical impact of in this case what appears to be a blast injury of a grenade or some other explosive vice but also others who sustained gunshot wounds these are injuries that break the bones inside the leg they shatter not only the bone but the flesh around it these are wounds it became often infected as survivors struggled just to survive the initial hours after the attacks and then family members others from the village would help them carry them really all the way over to bangladesh and then the heroic efforts of surgeons and other humanitarian and medical aid folks intervening to help patch these survivors back together physically but what we see in this case and many others like it is that you know this poor young man still cannot bear weight on that limb likely in part due to infection likely in part due to you know not having access to physical therapy after such a horrific injury and so you know the long term impact of these injuries lives on in the psychological trauma but also in the poorly healed bone fractures and other injuries that we have documented in the report don't ya ue physicians for human rights what is it that you want this report this this discovery to achieve we aim to bring the credibility of science and forensic evidence to bear on the telling of the truth and the search for accountability and justice on behalf of survivors of this violence does that mean putting those responsible to the international criminal court how does one do that in a country like me mall which is by all intents a still a military ruled nation i think that there certainly is an important effort towards accountability referral to the international criminal court or universal jurisdiction prosecution ph physicians for human rights we've been part of that work in yugoslavia in rwanda all over the world so that's part of our mission you know the circumstances are not easy in the camps and bangladesh is really committed incredible amounts of resources to an international ngos also to provide a shelter clothing care for people who are there i think that despite the difficulty of caring for seven hundred plus thousand refugees it's absolutely critical that we not support any effort that repatriation before understanding what what type of transparency has been established to show that there's a safe path return i want to put up another picture that we have and this is of a woman's arm and it shows a gunshot wound we're seeing there on the screen and this woman apparently you spoke to she fled the violence she had her baby in her arms a.

"To reflect on what you just said it is a mistake for germany to have that pipeline why is that because it increases germany's energy dependence on russia and there are other alternatives for germany including us ellen g including increase in the mix of renewable energy that's what we should be working on with germany and it's a particular mistake because german gas from russia currently comes through ukraine and helps to support the economy if ukraine so if you build a pipeline that goes that bypasses ukraine you lose that ability to stabilize a country that germany and the us put a huge investment in including to support their democratic direction and their ability to live separately from russia all you i mean do agree with the way president trump characterize it the germany is captive controlled by russia because of this deal absolutely not as you said at the beginning less than a third of germany's energy mix comes from from russia and it could go lower if we work together on these things but more importantly it has been chancellor merckel since the invasion of crimea in two thousand fourteen who has rallied the european union and all of the nato countries in europe to stand up to president putin to implement difficult sanctions to take economic hits as a result of the sanctions and to insist that he get out of eastern ukraine before we can have normal relations together so she's been strong advocate and ally of the united states in standing up to the real bully on the block vladimir putin and we should not be alienating her whoa you've just talked about putin as being the ruling real bully on the block you've said that he's drooling over all of this discord and in fact one of your successes the current us ambassador to nato a republican senator in her former live kay bailey hutchinson agreed an admitted to me that this discord the trump is sewing amongst the alliance is music to putin's is so what do you think about the next step of this journey will president trump go into his meeting in helsinki with president putin stronger or weaker after all of this that we're seeing now i mean that all depends on how president trump plays it with president putin if he continues to say he's an okay guy he's the easiest meeting i'm gonna have if he talks about giving away sanctions the sanctions regime or crimea or for for for nothing and if he doesn't bring up the interference democratic systems us elections including including in two thousand sixteen and potentially in two thousand eighteen then putin is going to have a fantastic day if on the other hand he said i hope you saw what i said at nato i want nato to be stronger because i'm worried about what you're up to and we're going to stand together that'll be a different thing but that has not been president trump's pattern visavis russia he seems to to forgive our adversaries everything and to enjoy beating up our friends so on the big picture which is the strengthening and keeping this western the that is underpinned peace and security and prosperity for the last seventy years donald tusk who has you know is the president of.

"That the hacking of the us election was an intentional operation by russian intelligence services at president putin's direction it's interesting that president putin started by denying any russian involvement and now he's talking about patriotic hackers guys who might have got up in the morning and decided to do his bidding which is the same technique that he used when he dealt with ukraine crisis he initially said that russia wasn't involved at all in dawn boss and then later said oh they might be patriotic guys who decided to take matters into their own hands so he's looking to take a little credit without taking responsibility i'd like to put another bit of a sound bite ju this is between our matthew child's in russia and and the banker who is close to vladimir putin sergei gorkov head of the russian v bang and of course the latest blockbuster is really involving jared kushner and the fact that he apparently is a person of interest and i had apparently close ties to this vp bank listen to this quick question what did you really speak to jared kushner by jeannou when you mentioned wahhabism could you talk about sanctions excuse me not combs who was discussed the white house says it was a diplomatic meeting that the kushner met he was part of the transition team use your bank says it was a business may thank you so much what what do you know about gorkov in the eib bank.

"So at the time i reported on jim joe the actually reported on jim joe these six seven time over over a probably set ten twelve years since i've been working in this field and many of the people in the muslim community have been doing exactly the same thing the authorities the minister elwood was unable to tell us what the authorities new time and time again these people have been reported to the authorities on the policies did nothing what do they need to do they they dick travel around this country promoting their hatred division over divided society their endorsing violence and the killing of innocent people and they celebrate the barbaric crimes of isis if that is not enough to have the police in the authorities look into them then i'm really really scheduled on the future so let me ask you this because we know that horror about was on some kind of a watchlist in 2015 and then we're told by the met that that was downgraded because they saw no evidence of an actual attack being planned and we know that this deal thousands of people out there who are on these this and they're obviously aren't enough police to deal with that they could never be what do you think the authorities need to do because this is a a real crunch at the moment what we have a law in this country christiana which is going for caytion of terrorism and i believe i jumped chaudhry and his co heart on his extremist for ras meet the requirement the criteria for clarification of terrorism so i have no problem as do people in the muslim community if those people are charged and convicted in a call law and then given a longer jail term.
