"Through his different companies and a lot of his ability to use his companies for those purposes were directly facilitated by the rose law firm, where you have Hillary Clinton. In addition to her, you have other people that have prominent roles in the early Clinton administration Webster Hubble and Vince foster Webster Hubble has to leave, of course, under a cloud of scandal and Vince foster dies relatively early on in the Clinton administration. Under very, as I note in the book, suspect circumstances, and it's not the only suspect death of a top Clinton official during the Clinton presidency. So can you share a little bit more about foster gate because it was sort of illustrative of what we're seeing and hearing since then, this idea of there was a fundraiser. And one of the most surprising things I read was that Hillary Clinton allegedly was selling high level nuclear code secrets to Israelis, and then there was a payoff in foster's wife got like a $286,000 deposit mysteriously in her account and he was going to meet with the president and suddenly he's dead. He rejected hush money apparently, and then was going to drop this whole mess and Bill Clinton's lap, but died beforehand. Well, that's the allegation. So this is a very complex story, so people that want the details on it, I would refer you to the book because it's all out there. So basically you have Jeffrey Epstein from 19 87, possibly 1985 with some of the stuff. You know, he's in Leslie wexner's inner circle by the time he's affiliated with the clintons at the beginning of their administration. He's Leslie wexner's money manager and has almost total control over Leslie wexner's business entities and finances through a very far reaching power of attorney. And he's but he also created a Ponzi scheme around that same time with Stephen hoffenberg that collapses spectacularly in 1993. Towers financial, one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in U.S. history. His name is dropped from the case, and he begins, he's associated at that same time with this fundraiser at the Clinton White House. That's not necessarily being run by the D and C or Bill Clinton. It's being run by The White House historical association and the First Lady's office, meaning Hillary Clinton. And to redecorate, right? Allegedly to redecorate. So I might actually just refer to my book for part of this. If you don't mind because I think it gives a better idea of what we're dealing with here. Might take me a second to find it, sorry. Sure, no worries. I found it to be fascinating. I mean, it's a really crazy story. So The New York Times reported on Vince foster's quote unquote suicide note. So first off, police when they searched foster's office after his death and his body was discovered, found nothing in his briefcases briefcases empty. Then somehow 36 hours later, the First Lady's office says that the suicide note appeared in its fosters. It sometimes also referred to as foster's quote unquote resignation letter. And what's odd about it is you, The New York Times wrote the following about it, and that's the quote I'm looking for. Yeah. So she's response, so basically Hillary Clinton is the main person behind the 30 hour delay in releasing foster's alleged suicide note to authorities and photographing the note was forbidden. It was exempt from freedom of information act requests, a copy was somehow obtained by a man named James Davidson, who arranged for three handwriting experts to examine the note they judge it to be a forgery.

That David Weston have a great weekend as a Bloomberg business flash. You have a good weekend as well. So the president of the United States, Joe Biden has had a good midterm election at least much better than people expected. And now he has a celebration coming up tomorrow as his granddaughter, Naomi Biden, will be married to Peter Neal at The White House to give us some perspective on this Washington and White House wedding. We welcome to help Barbara Perry. She's professor and director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller center. Professor Perry is the editor most recently of the presidency, facing a constitutional crossroads. So thank you so much for being with us. Give us some perspective. This is far from the first, I guess that maybe the 18th or 19th? Yes, indeed is the case. 18 weddings at The White House historical association has counted up, I should say, in full disclosure, I serve on their board now. And I was using their website to find out all the great historical details. So what do we know about the wedding? And we know we know the names of the bride and the groom. We know that Naomi Biden is the daughter of Hunter Biden, the president's son, and we know it's tomorrow. Do we know much else? They have been private as one would expect from a president's family or any family, most people don't necessarily broadcast to the world what they're doing for their wedding. I think it's going to be a rather small intimate wedding for friends and family. But having said that there is always a little bit of a catch, isn't it, to have a wedding in The White House and expect it to be completely private. It is a public space, a public icon and very historic. But I should say that I was there, don't mean to drop names, but I was there last week at a White House dinner that was held and hosted by Jill Biden, our wonderful First Lady. And it was for The White House historical association Ford. And its members. And I sat by coincidence with the bridal couple said that their table. So they are a lovely young couple and I could just tell that the First Lady was so proud of them because she went up on a stage to introduce the floor show, which was the sea chanters of the U.S. Navy who were spectacular. But before they began their program, she said, I just want to introduce my granddaughter and her fiance and with that, they stood up from the table and got a big round of applause. What a nice story. Now, that's not the only celebration this weekend at The White House as I understand that the president of the United States will turn 80 on Sunday. Does that make him the oldest serving president? It certainly does, yes. He has surpassed his just immediate predecessor, Donald Trump. And so he now goes into the category of the first octogenarian president we've ever had. It's fascinating. And that takes us to the question, which is on a lot of people's minds, president was asked this right after the midterms. Is he going to run again? He has said he is. He's going to run again. At the same time in the same news conference, he said, but I'm going to think about it over the holidays and we'll be back to you in the new year. Do we have a sense of historically of what it means for a president to run for the second term, particularly when they're that old? Well, it's unprecedented because, again, he's the first president of this age to be serving. I should say though that even though the dinner last week was hosted by the First Lady and she had actually attended the dinner, I had been told by a good source in the journalism world that the president tends to show up at these things, even though he's not on the invitation. As the inviter. And so I looked out in the hallway from the red room, and there was the president. And I have to say, coming up to 80 years of age for him, he is, you know, stands completely up right. He's not bent over as some people who age are. His face was just glowing. I think with the results of the midterm elections and he had just come from that press conference where he said it wasn't his intention to run. And we should also note to circle back to the wedding of Naomi, that his daughter Naomi granddaughter Naomi and her cousin. So his other grandchildren were the ones who urged him to run in 2020. So I wouldn't doubt that that's going to be a big topic of conversation at the wedding and the birthday celebration this weekend. So Barbara, I'm sorry to take a turn here, but you know the news and the way it works and we have some more news about a former president coming out. We now have just learned that Merrick Garland, the attorney general of the United States of America is going to name a special counsel for that probe into former president Trump. This is not the first time we've seen a special counsel investigate a president even in recent years. But give us some historical perspective if you could on that on the significance of a special counsel being appointed to look into this. Sure. Well, that goes back to the Watergate era, people will remember, I think, Archibald Cox, who was appointed as a special prosecutor. And that's usually indicates that is such an important investigation to come along that it doesn't want to be viewed as partisan or political. And so that this concept of being an independent or special prosecutor then set tends to separate that out from the Justice Department and the usual U.S. attorney and attorney general approach. And I will also say that that became a law. There was a so called independent counsel law. That's how we ended up with Ken Starr, for example, in the whitewater investigation in the Clinton years that went on to include the Monica Lewinsky situation and Paula Jones. And so that was a law that told or went out of application. And most people thought maybe that's a good thing, but there's still the option of the attorney general to appoint a special counsel. Robert Mueller was one that was most recent. And so I think this indicates that for a person who has not only been a past president, but now has thrown his hat into the ring for the 2024 nomination that this is a strong move and a good move on the part of Merrick Garland. Yeah, I want to be entirely transparent. That is the Dow Jones as well as The Associated Press who are reporting that about the special counsel. At the same time, if memory serves, one of the issues with special counsel is they tend to have a mind to their own. I mean, it's certainly insulates, I think, at least the inquisition or the I'm sorry, the inquiry from an accusation from former president Trump that it's political, but in there I had these things can go directions. You never anticipate. Well, there's a typical good news bad news, isn't it? Are we on a news program talking about

"Director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Wednesday, September 7th, an important presidential tradition returns to The White House today as president Joe Biden welcomed the president he served Barack Obama and his wife to The White House for the unveiling of their official portraits. As is often the case when Michelle Obama appears side by side with her husband, the 44th president Barack Obama, she tends to steal the show. We'll get to that in a moment, but today's event at The White House is one with a storied tradition where a succeeding president invites a former president back to the people's house for the unveiling of their official White House portrait. And these are the portraits that hang in the halls of The White House, and that didn't happen during the Trump presidency, as you might imagine, that tradition sort of went out the door the way that many traditions did in the Trump era. And therefore it was left to the bidens to invite the obamas back to The White House for the portrait unveiling. And that, of course, created a mutual admiration society since Joe Biden served as Barack Obama's vice president for 8 years, and there was no limit to the love and affection that President Biden and president Obama wanted to show each other today. Here was President Biden. At the beginning of the event in The White House earlier today before the official unveiling occurred. With Barack as our president, we got up every day and went to work full of hope. For real, full of purpose and excited about the possibility before us. There are a few people I've ever known with more integrity, decency and moral courage than Barack Obama. It's probably always been a little overwritten about just how close Barack Obama and Joe Biden really were, but there is clear affection for each other and it is no doubt true that their families had grown close together, largely due to friendships between the bidens grandchildren and the Obama girls. President Biden took today as an opportunity to praise president Obama for his work on the Affordable Care Act, the climate crisis, the economy, and more, and saying that nothing could have prepared him more for the presidency than being by Obama's side for 8 years. For his part, Barack Obama made sure in his remarks to pay his respects to the current occupant of The White House, as I said, it was a bit of a mutual admiration society. You've built on and gone beyond. The work we all did together to expand healthcare, to fight climate change, to advance social justice and to promote economic fairness. Thanks to your decency and thanks to your strength, maybe most of all, thanks to your faith in our democracy and the American people. The country is better off than when you took office. Then we should all be deeply grateful for that. These portrait unveiling ceremony has become a modern presidential tradition. These portraits are funded by The White House historical association, and presidents and first ladies get to have a say in who is selected to do their portraits and in the overall sort of sensibility of the portrait. But of course, it's bigger than the individual presidents and first ladies and their portraits, which will live on forever in history. In The White House, it is part of the institution of the presidency and gets at that very nature of the peaceful transition of power being a cornerstone of American democracy. That peaceful transition of power, of course, did not occur. This last time, given the insurrection on January 6th and Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the results, the legitimate results of the 2020 election, and that fact did not go unnoticed by former First Lady Michelle Obama when she addressed the crowd this afternoon. Traditions like this matter, not just for those of us who hold these positions, but for everyone participating in and watching our democracy. You see the people, they make their voices heard with their vote, we hold an inauguration to ensure a peaceful transition of power. And once our time is up, we move on. And all that remains in this hallowed place are good efforts and these portraits. Portraits that connect our history to the present day. It also was lost on no one that this wasn't just history because this was the 44th president having his portrait unveiled and his wife. This is the first black president and First Lady of the United States of America. And that redefining of the very image of what a president and First Lady looked like was also front of mind for Michelle Obama. So for me, this day is not just about what has happened. It's also about what could happen. Because a girl like me, she was never supposed to be up there next to Jacqueline Kinney Kennedy in Dolly Madison. She was never supposed to live in this house, and she definitely wasn't supposed to serve as First Lady, because as Barack said of the two of us can end up on the walls of the most famous address in the world. Then again, it is so important for every young kid who is doubting themselves to believe that they can too. As for the portraits themselves, well, it's tough to show you that on a podcast. So I urge

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions.
