Jeffrey Toobin on Writing About Trump
"Jeffrey toobin joins us now from northern Connecticut. His latest book is called True Crimes and misdemeanors the investigation of Donald, trump, it's already a New York Times Bestseller Jeff Welcome back to the podcast. It is a pleasure to be here Michelle. Well, we are talking about probably an unpleasant topic you've been covering this regularly for the New, Yorker, talking about it on CNN, the investigations of Donald. Trump plural I think and the impeachment process at what point did you think to yourself? Okay. This should be a book as well. Right at the beginning you know I have a special interest in fun for independent investigations of the presidency. I was one of the prosecutors in the Iran Contra -CATION in the Lawrence Walsh Investigation wrote my first book opening arguments about that did a book about. The Starr investigation of Whitewater Lewinsky in the Clinton years and so I know that the behind the scenes, stories of these investigations are always interesting. But what was a nerve ing as I started in was that I didn't realize that Muller which completely shut down all access I had to trust that eventually, I would get access to the Muller Office, but it was incredibly unnerving journalists to. Spend almost two years working on his side of the investigation really from the outside even though you've written about impeachment, you've written books about investigations. This book feels different and I'm curious to hear your take on what makes this book in the process of writing the book different from those previous books. Trump makes it different? The president is such an enormous figure in American history, his complete disregard. For norms his constant lying his inability or unwillingness to play by rules that Democrats and Republicans have played for all of certainly my conscious life it makes everything about these last three and a half years just feel different from anything I'd ever covered in anything I've ever felt as a citizen we've had conservative presidents. We've had liberal presidents, but we've never had a president like trump and. Both he as a protagonist in my story and the people who gravitate to him just make it totally different. Okay. Here's one way in which it feels different to me and I'm curious to hear your take and it's about trump but it's also about the reception of trump among Americans or certain group of Americans and it's that every single time there are some kind of event trump takes. Some action that seems to be a game changer. There's this expectation or there has been the expectation. Okay. Well, now, this is the end of this changes things, and that goes back to his not filing his tax returns during the campaign, but then I think the next point was with access Hollywood tapes and it's been that way ever since where where something will happen and people will say. Well now, that's it. You know there's gotTa be a consequence and then there really isn't a consequence I. Think you're right in part I mean you know and and you can go through others whether it was praising the white supremacists in Charlottesville standing by Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, and disparaging the American intelligence agencies firing James Comey which seemed like complete departures from how we expect presidents to behave. Another theme of my journalistic career has been the evolution of the Republican Party that if you go back to Richard Nixon the turning point in Watergate was when seven Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of impeachment and then ultimately Barry Goldwater Hugh Scott John Rhodes went to Nixon and say we can't support you anymore those three famous Republicans The Republican Party has turned into a trump call. And the ability of the president to do absolutely anything no matter how outrageous and retain the support of that forty percent of the country. Is. Something we've never seen before it's been building through the past couple of decades, but I think that's what accounts for the phenomenon you describe, which is no matter what he does the the political architecture of our time really never changes anymore because fifty five percent of the people are appalled forty forty percent of the people stick with trump and thus we have the election we have. So you're saying it's essentially the fact that he's not held. Accountable is a result of the fact that the party has sort of been entirely captured by trump. He has captive and very loyal audience among Americans, and then presumably the other arm of that is what's happened with the media and that certain is catering to and delivering that message. I. Can just add one thing. You know a lot of people like what trump is doing. It's not like this forty percent says, well, you know it's bad that he fires Komai. It's bad that he says, all these races. Thanks their gladis says racist things. I. Mean there are a lot of people in the country who have the same attitudes and I think that's what's chilling for people like me who was. I like to think is not a racist, but the way trump behaves in public it's a feature, not a bug people don't support him in spite of his excesses they support him because it's

I have lived here all my life and I live on I will farm I'm married the neighbor boy in two thousand eight I started a blog and it was in two thousand thirteen that I really dove into the travel side of things.

You could spend probably one home month exploring Iowa's scenic byways and I think that's pretty darn. Cool excellent will and where are you going to take us to what you're gonNA recommend where we starting. Well, let's start and do and. North, central. Iowa. Route, which is near where I live.

I'm talking one twenty, nine to one, fifty, nine at night in a historic hotel. Designed by Frank Lloyd. Wright. I mean that is amazing. So when you're in Mason City, you want to do the river city's sculptures on parade, which is a sculpture walk, and it's always fun because I travel a lot and you know these artists that create these sculptures are all across America and maybe some of you've seen the Humpty dumpty sculpture that's around. I. Know I'M Thinking, the last place I saw one was in Mesa Arizona Okay I just have to take a Selfie with it because I'm like here's how you know Humpty kind of manages to be wherever I am but the sculptures are really a nice walk because they also take you through the Rock Glen area in Mason City, which is where there are other Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes. So is not only the hotel. There's other homes there as well and McKnight or art museum is a fantastic museum in town. They have the bayard puppets, Baird Marionettes, wizard of Oz the marionnettes that we're using the wizard of Oz are in the museum in Mason City and you can go across the street to Music Man Square we what puppets were in wizard of Oz are we talking about flying monkeys or what?

And the Music Man Square has museum in there that is home to. Meredith Willson. So in the streetscape is in there and it looks just like in the movie, but you would envision it.

Thank you very much happy to be here excellent and for people who can't find Bosnia and Herzegovina on a map. Where are we talking about? Well. Everyone knows how to find Italy. It's a big shoe ships country. You have a boot-shaped country, so just go to the right side across the Atlantic Sea and we are right there. Well and your neighbor of Croatia. Bosnia you know goes around like little crescent moon. knoll on the West and south, and then these we have Serbia and southeast Montenegro. I to address. You're interested in making sure that people understand that. If they remember news about Bosnia, they may be remembering news from twenty thirty years ago when Bosnia was going through. A, war that's done, and that's been done now for quite a long time there there are people who are out in the working world who don't remember that and it's a wonderful place to go I. Want to say that I was anxious to do this show because we haven't done a show on Bosnia for a long time. And since then I have been to the country and loved it. So why should someone go to Bosnia Herzegovina? Well, there is a lot of reasons depending what you're interested in now. Bosnia is very complex country, but extremely small size of Pennsylvania, but inside. You have so much for the adventure seekers. There are so many adventure opportunities from Whitewater. Rafting canyoning to paragliding hiking is spectacular, and then if you're into history, we say that we have much more history than we can handle. Different Than Empires were here. We like to say where the crossroads or that where the meeting between the East and the West. Culturally very complex country, and also religiously we have Muslims, we have the Orthodox Christians, and we have Catholics with three big groups. Of course there's the Jewish community here which has been here since they were thrown out of Spain after Kista, so for five hundred years, all of these make this crazy, crazy and beautiful mix that very interesting for foreigners to see because inside I will for example and. And in many other cities in Bosnia, you can pined mosque Docs Church Catholic, Church and a synagogue literally in two hundred meter radius, and it's been like that for five hundred years while inside I will because that's how will the city is? And all of a Bosnia and we're very proud of that architecturally very different from anything else you can find in Europe you're GonNa, find this mix of. Of European styles as well as the optimum styles and a lot of course, local Bosnian styles in all of that mixed together will like to say that we are a Bosnian pots. That's one dish that we have. It's cooked in a big pot with a lot of things, mixed sight, and that's Bosnia a lot of things mixed, and it works perfectly. An Indian taste is fantastic why you should. Should visit Bosnian well. Whatever you choose. You're GONNA love it. If you're into history too much of it, you're into nature. It's absolutely stunning. It's fantastic, magic Pennsylvania, and then put inside the Rockies Grand Canyon Inca trail at a lot of other things as well a bit of New Zealand as well. We just like seaside. We have twenty four kilometers of seaside, so that's one thing with them have. And then, of course, for actually learning history or getting certain messages, let's say about life about history. How people live together or how they don't like each other, because while we had a lot of wars, let's especially in the last two hundred years. There's a lot of lessons that you can learn in Boston. Let's say war tourism doctors is now very big part of tourism in in Bosnia so if you want to learn about that, we are definitely to come to see what happens. If you don't defeat fascism, like most of Europe defeated off the Second World War and it actually shows how life can be both good and the bat also if you want to visit a place. which is completely different than rest of the Europe and very relaxed very laid back with fantastic food, most at a lot of reasons I think.

Indian amazing culture for centuries enough and the frame welcome to mention framework of things and like. Really with it, you start to get to the essence, and clearly the essence has to be the mind, so you're not putting Greek for God's sake, but it is not a psychologist on anything. That's exactly I mean. Everything comes down to the mind, even the fuel. It's it's amazing. Sufficient. Brilliant worldview of the Buddha's is observed to be true. That is a law natural law that runs a unit us. And what does it run is law within which minds and lives of sentient beings run, so there's Buddhist psychology which is a how the mind works and that trump's from is genius. Indians are with.

Disinfection of the water with chlorine or bromine should inactivate the virus that means that the normal correct use of and disinfection of these spaces should kill the corona virus that causes covid nineteen, and that goes whether it's a chlorine or a saltwater pool, which is great news, but swimming in the pool isn't the whole story when it comes to diving into summer fun. Public pools are public spaces, so social distancing practices are still necessary. So what does a safe public pool look like? Hopefully the pool or aquatic venue you visit, we'll be following CDC guidelines for these types of settings. These recommendations include frequent cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, maintaining good ventilation of indoor areas, spacing, the seating and standing areas, so that visitors can stay six feet or two meters, apart, marking lanes areas in the pool, and limiting or discouraging the use of shared items like goggles and kick boards, signing or regular announcements by staff, reminding visitors about safe.

US Supreme Court hears arguments over Trump's tax returns
"Told why were there three cases today that the Supreme Court heard we're trying to get trump's financial records financial records some sort of legal standpoint and different goals our members of Congress and Congress would actually work in the present financial records and also the district attorney that's for Asian financial records as part of an investigation that hush money payments to twenty eight so this is going to the emoluments as well about a million and then tripped up on the question of who even has the right to start an emoluments case to file an appointment well the question is standing on the condition but rather the question for today what is what can you put the president in a post that Congress and the people have the right to investigate other people but how much does the president have to get and so we're looking at executive power versus legislative power in the course of law enforcement power it sort of it was two distinct cases that I think one of them what will become of one of the the congressional one I thought was pretty well perhaps surprisingly well for him I wouldn't think it but when he was a good news there why do you say that well no not really the house is if you were asking for the you know making the case that they should be allowed to have access to trump's financial records the court kept asking for a limit on that power okay you say Congress has the power to in its financial records how did that go other cases where the Congress couldn't get dependent take a sample of his blood because they got all the you know one of the women and the houses well the the only limit is we can ask record on anything that legislation has been the subject of possible legislation they won't you know is there any of that because you just put a question on anything in the house quickly come up with a good answer to that okay thank you Mr Tony to be saying look you know we have a legitimate one question how are you and if you don't get the records from the president giving him and everybody connected to him can you use it after the whole length of this term so David Farenthold is there any precedent for a president eight not giving financial records and be should he or she be compelled to this is a classic case of seeing that the president one from Watergate and one from whitewater press button Clint was trying to avoid being deposed and the president lost both those cases any sort of a landmark you cannabis rulings or even just the president appointed him into look no you're not above the law the president but back up to this the disregard has spoken with one voice and these two recent cases and said you know the president is not above the law I don't think both of these cases are likely to be unanimous one about in Congress and like it was gonna be back up here Congress doesn't want to be in that want to be seen is telling companies predict in that you know the president is different than any other man they may do that in this case are qualified now of course he's been carried these teleconference cases live today and when you were listening did you hear any justices that stood out to you I thank John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch particularly with the judges actually interesting questions Roberts particularly was very hard on the house's lawyer you know he said a couple different times this test is not at the with the power and then the next I will be going hard after president trump's secular the president of the limitless power the president is temporary immunity from prosecution president I think Robert that's really good question no I'm not at the printer definitely cover the convolution Heaton but the reading I've seen taken away that the prescriptions with the profits mixed signals in the year to get the outcome you might think you would be for trump on the house and against trump on the matter and you mentioned that you do cover the trump organization you've written a book about it in fact yes I've come to terms charitable giving our promises but you're getting yes that is one of the things do we know anything about the trump organization it's we don't know it better than we do about other companies the private company that doesn't say very much about it so but we've now learned a bit about it from public records I'm going to have to tell a little bit of itself so that the public is not doing that well now especially because it's closing its properties wasn't because president trump through that so much of its customers away and we know it relies a lot on allied internment government so sort of put money into its properties so when do we expect a decision on these three cases what I'm sold out he would work for us but in this case I think we'll see more thank you for the fall elections is there any chance it could be delayed until after the election I mean you never say never special event going on that that's the thing I've been hearing is that gonna happen at the end of the service so you can read in The Washington Post David Fahrenthold and his colleagues for report on today's Supreme Court

Travel to Costa Rica
"To the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen before we get into this week's episode. I do want to say something about the corona virus epidemic. Which is what's going on as I record this. I also put this in the amateur traveler facebook group but I know that. Not all of your in there. I want you to know what my plan is. So many of you I am sheltering in place and I am not traveling because it's the right thing to do these days but I won't be blogging and podcasting about coveted Nineteen Ama- traveler. I'm not a medical expert. You don't need my opinion. We did do one episode of this week and travel. Because it's news but that's really all I'm going to do about this and I'm really of the opinion that this will get better. I don't know how long but sometime we will get back to work. And things will return to normal and travel will return to normal whatever normal looks like and so. I'm going to be looking ahead. I'm going to be helping you dream of better days. I know for some of you. That's not what you're looking for now. If you unsubscribe because this isn't the right time for you to be thinking about travel no problem. I understand but that's what we're going to be doing here and I just didn't want to catch you by surprise it's not that I'm totally clueless about what's going on that being said. Let's talk about Costa Rica. I'd like to welcome the show. Sam and Jason. From my ten feet dot com who've come talk to us about Costa Rica Salmon and Jason. Welcome to the show. Hello Chris Thank you for having us and Salmon Jason our friends. I think we met in Philippines on a press trip. I WANNA say ten years ago so I don't remember exactly when we met the first time but someone actually pitched me doing Costa Rica but two of the bloggers that I know. Who are the experts on? Costa Rica Are Salmon? Jason and they make a living basically from this and from helping people figure out what to do in Costa Rica's so let's start with the obvious. Why should someone go to Costa Rica? Costa Rica offers a lot of things to do for people who want to experience nature because Costa Rica's known as a very ECO friendly sustainable destination. It's very green country in every sense of that word yes exactly. They protect over twenty five percent of their land actually in so for anyone who wants to experience nature whether they love I watching or hiking or even a beach vacation to see a volcano experienced rainforest particularly has got it all in that sense and when it comes to countries in Central America Latin America is very safe. It's very popular for travelers in the US in now more in Europe and they're very friendly people in they're very welcoming so Costa Rica's even a destination for people who have never been outside traveled internationally because of the excellent. And what kind of are you going to recommend for someone who let's say it's their first time in Costa Rica? I most people they land in San Jose. International Airport in this is because this is the biggest international airport so they have more flights schedules. And then for the first time itinerary something I would really recommend is and then you go to Fortuna I in La. Fortuna is a city what they call northern lowlands and it is home to the. Arina volcano very close to lake are now which is the biggest man-made Lake in Costa Rica and also a lot of rainforest around and so a lot for tonight is known as the adventure capital of Costa. And you can do pretty much all the adventures you could once. They're so whitewater rafting canyoning zip-lining very popular hiking because of the rainforest is nature. There's a lot of wildlife can see a lot of birds monkeys and floss and it's a very good destination for families or for Solo travelers. Because you find everything from ten dollars. Abed a night till eight hundred dollars a night so you have super budget to the super luxury. We'll I in. This is what we did when we were in Costa Rica. The first time you didn't stop us in San Jose to do anything and that is pretty typical for Costa Rican itineraries. Well craze the reason why well Waco streak is. We don't do that well. Actually the government is trying to make the capital Prettier Bad the truth is that the traffic is terrible. Whenever you work the tourism industry you don't one on a generic going through San Jose because traffic jams are getting very bad. I believe that every single city on the world is having this problem so ideas or packages that you find like San Jose jewel probably stay one or two nights and then you might see one or two activities on the whole day and I will say the main reason is the traffic well and I was not surprised that you did not suggest that but I did want to point it out because somebody may be looking at an itinerary that somebody else creates for them and I wanted them to know the difference. Well now that you mentioned that this is actually something that I have noticed. Recently especially with people from Mexico. We got a lot of direct flights from Mexico in a notice that a lot of Mexicans in some sense they liked to stay in San Jose and they do a lot of one day. Trips is a lot of time on the buzz things that I don't actually recommend by opinion is a waste of time. I mean if you WANNA go to a game is not fun to spend four hours in the boss three hours and then go back for our sped. Believe it or not. This is a new thing we saw last year so meant that I was with a lot of people asking in. Actually we work with companies that do one day tours and many people they liked to be in bosses nowadays. I don't know whoever's listening to this podcast if you love to stay in a positive things house in one day trips but we don't recommend you to do that. The only things that I can think of that are close enough that I would do that. As there's a couple of the coffee plantations that I think are close and the river rafting in that area is fairly close to center. Say but I can't think of anything else that I really would want to see in Costa Rica. That San Jose would be where I would base myself. I think it's a lot of people they come to Experienced two major because it doesn't really sell itself it city city life economic in the city. They do have some nice cultural sites. They have a national theatre. They have a few really nice museums. But it's so small. It's not a big city so honestly see the city in a day and you can go to the neighborhood. That has a lot of good restaurants. You can get really good feel for in just one day and you don't need more than that really as if you were in New York City Madrid or not as much to do which I think is part of the reason why a lot of Timorese. Un in San Jose many sleeve. Right away yeah. I don't think I've been in San Jose. Costa Rica twice. So yeah so unless if you are dying like really really keen on experiencing city life you really don't have much time and something to mention Kristie. You mentioned the Quad River. Which is the most popular Whitewater rafting? The we have here in Costa Rica. A lot of people what they do is they take that tour as a way of transportation so for example. If you're planning to go to La Fortuna or you're planning to three Korean site so he's very very very common people book the Touri- Apple say but they ask to be drop off either for tuna or decree inside or they can bring you back to say but that will save you now your dad with many other attractions if you go to well. In this case the EPA quad as is closer Korean site. So from that location you can go through two different locations so the Costa Rican tourism industry. They know that so. What they do is is that it's transferred tour with four or five hours activities. Very bubbler any works very well here. Sure can do. The two are from laugher tuna or the Caribbean works. Both ways so very much like you can take a whole day for instead of traveling traveling in rafting

White House impeachment team weighs in on Bolton claims
"In the house impeachment inquiry was beginning the White House claimed it wasn't fair and White House attorney said they would not be cooperating with the impeachment process house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler had said if the president's team wouldn't participate they couldn't claim the process was unfair then things stop house speaker Nancy Pelosi was holding the articles of impeachment saying the house was waiting to hear about the rules of the Senate trial president trump said let's move this along this is Renee a total sham from the beginning everybody knows it I've never seen in the Republican Party so United we got our last about as you know we got a hundred percent of the vote I believe the Senate is equally as well United now the Senate trial has begun discussions over what is fair still loom Republicans say an offer to let the president's team participating committee presentations of evidence came too late Democrats and the White House is blocking documents in preventing key witnesses from testifying Monday the president tweeted that the house never even asked former national security adviser John Bolton to testify but they didn't they didn't issue a subpoena like they did the Boltons aids trials government government filed a lawsuit to force the question should I listen to the president stay quiet or complied with the subpoena the judge dismissed the suit though when the house withdrew the request and moved forward with formal articles of impeachment so the question has been answered Bolton has since said he would testify in the Senate trial if the peanut Democrats do want to call more witnesses before the Senate Republicans say they should have done that during the house inquiry now though Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer notes there's new information Mister Bolton's book is further evidence that a large number of people for a quote in the loop on this scheme and now they are all covering up part of Bolton's book many script leaked over the weekend after it had been sent to the National Security Council for classified information vetting he says the president quote wanted to continue freezing security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the bidens I'm sorry about the timing AT standard is an associate editor and columnist at real clear politics because everyone was assuming we're speeding toward a conclusion here of the trial at the end of this week without witnesses but in terms of how long it is that the manuscript has been at the administration whether GM but the National Security Council or both and we know or dare and also distributed to a wider circle of top political people as has been the case with books like this in the past was it always the case that Bolton sort of you know hovered over this defense from the president's team and threaten to weaken it yes it was always the case that we knew he had information the investigation and the impeachment in the house had not yet revealed and it was likely to run counter to what the president's lawyers for saying schools in the tourney said that this clearly is a corruption of the NSC review process and Democrats say you know this surely should serve more as a catalyst to to actually hear from witnesses specifically Bolton when you look at sort of the the broad strokes in the big picture of what everyone saying regardless of any motivation does its way things doesn't change anything well it is a first hand hand the cal and in a way that contradicts the the defense that began over the weekend of of the of the president where lawyers came out on Saturday and said there is no evidence anywhere that this was a a quid pro quo on and that the president intended it to be that withholding of security eight so I think the senators on the Republican side are angry not because they think the John Bolton was squarely in the release of his timing and you know perhaps it's connected to his creed overbooked fails but that the White House might have known since December thirtieth that this is an incredibly damaging development and would poke holes in their defense and would make the argument for witnesses had this information been known earlier I I actually saw some defense from some Republican senators of John Bolton many of them are very close to him they believe his truth teller and that he wouldn't be lying in this book do you foresee a court fight I mean I know the court site really only happens if four Republican senators say yes to witnesses so we have to get there first we think that's gonna happen if John Bolton isn't just going to go on sixty minutes or something I mean I I just don't know just on anyways right he's decided in the eleventh hour that his reputation could be tarnished by the fact that he was holding out but now they're rushing the book to publication and body wants to be a patriot and he didn't wanna look redeem he's clearly conflicted so I don't know what exactly his line of thinking as but he has made it clear to us all along he intends to tell us something that we don't yet know and so if he foresees a court battle does he go into an open media setting I know that nothing can stop the house from trying to subpoena him and he could say yes to a subpoena I don't know but the Senate trial if that's gonna get gummed up this building just sit down in interview that that's I think a big alone looming question here now that he has that publication date since Fulton's many scriptures leak Republican senators who previously expressed interest in possibly hearing from witnesses have said this does strengthen the argument Utah senator Mitt Romney said he thinks it is increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of them who think they should hear from John Bolton Maine senator Susan Collins said the reporting on Fulton strengthens the case for witnesses it would take a least for Republicans joining Democrats in order for witnesses to be called so wise and Berg is former deputy independent counsel in the whitewater investigation it authorizes the calling of witnesses I would have to believe that Bolton would be one of them the real question is what happens after that do the president's lawyers make a motion in the trial to exclude the testimony under executive privilege and if they do what happened to that one I think most of us are curious about the reach of executive privilege and a lot of articles have been written over the weekend like trying to expound on what seems like untested waters to a certain degree we we don't really know how far executive privilege will will apply do we certainly not in the context of impeachment I don't believe there's any precedent certainly not in the federal appellate precedent gusting executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or an impeachment trial I should say so we're really operating without without a guide book I will say that if you look at history and particularly the accounting period and the and the first few administrations and congresses after the founding period there is some historical support for the notion that it might not executive privilege might not apply at all in the context of an impeachment trial the first is the very first time a president withheld information didn't called executive privilege then but the very first time I believe that a president withheld information from Congress was when I was in a Washington with held certain papers related to the negotiations of the Jay treaty which was very unpopular and he was asked for old papers and he gave the great majority of them but he did not give over certain papers that he felt were too sensitive and he said at the time this would be different if if we were talking about an impeachment inquiry so I think there is certainly a credible argument that executive privilege either would not apply or would be the standards would be much more difficult for successfully invoking executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or trial school in your legal mind how does not proceed does it depend on if you have a cooperating witness first is not of just how does the justice department pursue a case against somebody who says you know I'm I'm going to ignore your your invocation of executive privilege and I'm going to go ahead and testify or does it work in the reverse if you say to Congress no I'm going to resist your subpoena who's sort of the authority that that will make that determination ambassador Bolton has already said that if subpoenaed he will testify so I think how it would proceed would be the president's lawyers in the impeachment trial if that happened the boat Mississippi that need to testify will make a motion to the she just this thing the president invokes executive privilege and we we do not agree that this man to justice robbers can do one of two things he can make that determination himself number one do even apply a secular privilege here number two if I'm going to apply it how do we waive the interests of the president versus the interest of the Senate and conducting an impeachment trial now this is David keep justice Roberts says I'm gonna let you invoke executive privilege that would be the easiest for the the majority I think in the Senate because they would have to overturn him by majority vote to overrule but let's say the rules you know what executive privilege simply doesn't apply here it's not very strong here and by the way we do I think the president's already waived whatever in is an interesting situation because we can certainly be overruled but I think we have to think about what you're gonna look like at the two cases in the United States has ruled that Fulton have testified even in the face of an invocation of executive privilege by the president but we're gonna overrule the Chief Justice is what you're saying hold truth the reverse occurs in other words if somebody is resistant unlike Bolton to appearing maybe Samick Mulvaney or a secretary Pompeii or somebody like that and Congress you know the senators say you know excuse me you can't ignore our subpoena is due to the senators then take this to court or petition justice Roberts in much the same way that you you save what happens if the White House felt they were trying to get something through well that would certainly let's say the the the Senate subpoenas and Mulvaney to go into court he could he could make his argument first in front of the net at sitting as a court either thing could happen I don't think it would be bold enough to reassert this the notion of absolute immunity again because it is it is the

GOP Representative Jim Sensenbrenner to retire
"You I'm gonna be joined in just a few seconds here by congressman Jim Sensenbrenner who has been a powerful member of the United States house of representatives for decades former committee chairman and long time representative of currently called the fifth congressional district and the just the clouds of change a little bit over the years but it's always been a very very large chunk of the Milwaukee suburbs congressman Sensenbrenner good afternoon hi mark how are you doing I'm a great I you have it at all to do you want to share with our audience this afternoon so I'm just going to allow you to share it yes mark I wanna let you and your listeners know all of that I've decided not to seek reelection a year from November I always knew that when the time came for me to step aside I would come to that conclusion and I've done that now it's been a great run for the last forty two years I think I've made a difference both for our district in our country in building the Republican Party and making us safer through the patriot act in this modernization as well as standing up for disabled people and me on board so the time has come I think to pass the torch I'm proud of what I've done and then of what I want to do is to thank everybody who has supported me over the years because I never could have done it alone. obviously you've been there for a long time you had a few health problems have been some health issues in your family are those contributing factors here or have you just decided that you wanna roll off into the sunset and not have to do so much hard work for the rest of your life well first of all I'm not planning on going off into the sunset I will remain active in Wisconsin politics health question the answer is no my wife who has severe aneurysm is stabilized and I am feeling you know up to the job and you all are going to be hearing an awful lot for me during the next sixteen months when I survive my final term of particularly if the Democrats are foolish enough to actually go through an impeachment in the Judiciary Committee that was my next question you do and you're not resigning or anything like that your term would run to January of twenty one and you are going to serve that entire que van is correct I am not resigning I am serving out my term and at the end of this term I will have been in Congress longer than anybody else in Wisconsin history including David OP was that done was that a goal at any point what it all really. for the last two years but you know I I I figured yeah after all the pushing and pulling in the last Congress you know I wanted to be there in this Congress whether we were in the majority or the minority and when you're in the minority of course you have nothing to say about the schedule but I learned a long time ago that when you have a good idea you get a bipartisan sponsor co sponsor of it because in our divided Congress unless you do that it's not going anywhere. have you made a decision as to whether or not you're going to endorse someone who seeks to replace your I'm not going to win Doris anybody I'm sure there's going to be a scrum of Republicans running and I hope they all seek the party endorsement next month or next March the fifth district caucus the only thing I can say to those who are contemplating running are actually running is don't kill each other please. the I. up. ten year of your career you I mean the the what the media will describe me the use different adjectives than those of the conservatives would describe but forceful aggressive feisty combative committed all of those words do come to do come divided describing your career I mean it's hard what you mentioned that you're not going to go watch silently I can't imagine you ever being silent ready thank you not only were a consistent conservative and maybe a little bit ahead of your time in some of your conservative points of view you chose to make yourself vocal and clear and aggressive as you know there are some members of Congress we call a back benchers they go there and you never hear anything from them again and they cast their votes in the collector paychecks and so on you chose from the beginning. to be heard and that the voice of sense in better would be known and would be out there I talk for just a moment about that and about your own style and the way that you've kind of handle the comported yourself in your life tenure in Congress well after my first election I got a call from former president Ford he said Jim you have a safe district you can either be a great constituents Orvis congressman or hire people who can do that my staff has been great or you can be somebody who actually aggressively pursues and passes legislation that was very good advice and that's what I've done really right from the beginning and I don't regret doing that because the staff can do an awful lot of things that they can their goose registration they can't debated they can't vote on it they can't negotiate with the Senate and with the White House and I I just had my staff pull together some figures following Gerry Ford's advice I've been the lead sponsor coast sponsor of four thousand two hundred ninety nine pieces of legislation seven hundred sixty eight of them passed the house and two hundred seventeen of them have been signed into law by six different presidents so I think I made a difference both for our district in for our country and I've kept in touch hundred town meetings average every year nobody can come close to that in there a lot of people who come into the town meetings and say I've been to direct I've been to route and things like that but I think that this is an issue of accountability and I guess somebody could be wishy washy and six months later when things don't turn out correctly people say why didn't he or she tell us that that's not my style some is not going to pass I think people are newer right away. and they are put their efforts into something else. when I got wind that you wanted to have something to say obviously I didn't think it was you announcing reelection because you pronounce your candidacy for reelection ninety seven thousand times that it was something else one of the questions that will come up is why now are you burned out to get tired of the attitude in Washington did that come into play or is it simply that it's time and you want to go out on your own terms while you can still do it on your own terms well it's you know the thing is is that the framers set up the constitution that required compromise which is kind of a naughty word nowadays and it's been frustrating I'll be the first one to admit that I wanted to go out on my own terms I don't haven't announced opponent free election and nobody can come up and say well I forced him out map because there's nobody that has any credibility at math you know the other thing you know is is that I'd like to get a new representative in the fifth district before redistricting because if I served another term and would be leaving in twenty twenty two I can see the wolves on both sides of the aisle on Madison seeing themselves going to Washington and carving the seat up and believe me I have work to make the wall counties more Republican the wall counties have got to be kept together in redistricting if Republicans are going to have any chance of winning a statewide election yeah I guess we should tell people since she has changed a bit over every ten years you're just like I guess could roughly be described as a small portion of western Milwaukee county the northern half of walk a shot I think all they're virtually all of Jefferson I think you have all the virtually all of Dodge and Washington you no longer have sake I think I think I pretty much yeah you're pretty and the city of whitewater the city of white water ice. get a little bit down there and your white water in that so that's it yet it could change a little bit over the years with the redistricting and so on but it is generally bad. a Republican district and wanted which well you had challengers none that were ever very serious I guess my final question to you is was that liberating and allowing you to. not have to worry at all about. taking positions that were in chores by having a district that was perceived is generally safe do you think do you think that allowed you to become an even more effective and outspoken voice for conservatism it was because I mean I think you you pre date even Tommy Thompson's governorship in here what if you think about the foundational roots of the contemporary Republican Party in Wisconsin I mean your the route I mean it's it's been you and everything's calm well you better route well. very clearly so all the way the old nine district was when I was first elected it didn't start out that way half the courthouse in half the legislative delegation in Waukesha county were Democrats we had a party leadership that complained about conservatives at the bar at the Country Club and the next spring with my support down Taylor was elected Waukesha county chairman and with the party signing up for members and me pointing out folks who have fled from the city that is Republicans that really stand up for your values of small government good schools will crime rates lower taxes and you are a shared your previous voting habits and start voting for Republicans they have a lot of people but led by don Taylor bureau have been able to turn walkie Sean Washington

another one you obviously timed the announcement the election is next year the primary election which is where all the action to be on the Republican side is you know a full you're a ways you're giving the other would be candidates an opportunity to go on this it will catch anyone by surprise even though you will Sir about obviously the entirety of the term did you have this in your mind last year when you were writing that the the election that you won back in twenty eighteen was the last is this but thought for a while it or did this come up in the last week what where's where's the time line bad where arms of how you come to this well you know what I what I can say is that Sean Duffy and I were the two most responsible for convincing Paul Ryan to run for speaker and I made a commitment at least mentally that I would serve out and be Paul Ryan's good friend in backstop and he gave me a couple of messages to straighten out which were real masses that you know Paul's retirement was a surprise but no surprise but things have gone along so far down the you know I said that you know really we don't need to have an uproar in the fifth district because it will hurt the statewide take care of well you know heard governor Walker and Attorney General Shamil and you know needed to have the the work that I was doing and the endorsements that I could make the keep the the

"Or is there any optimism in terms of something happening with this meeting between Nadler staff and the Justice department today. Look right now, it looks like it's probably going to be routine. I was asking lawmakers last night, whether they had any hope that they would reach an agreement and a lot of them just deferred to the chairman Nadler. And whether he he would agree now chairman now there has said he is going to fight tooth and nail to see all of these redacted pieces of the report, which includes grand jury material and other sensitive information. And that's the exact information that Barr says he is not going to give to congress. So right now, both sides have just been very stubborn and neither side led up. So the contempt the move to hold him in contempt looks like at least right now like it will just be something that Democrats will vote for unusual probably along party lines. So will these tomorrow? So so that is likely to come to MOS you just said, but but remind us here because this Pete on the news Musso quickly. These just reminded what was. The argument that Bill bar was making less week when he testified before the Senate, but why he wouldn't give a fully unredacted version of the report to congress. So Bill Barr says he gave as much information as he could. But he was following special counsel regulations that were established after the whitewater investigation in the Clinton administration. So he was falling within the guidelines, and he could go to court and request that this information eventually be released to congress. But that's something he said, he wouldn't do and Democrats say that in every other pass special counsel investigation. They would be able to have that information. And they want it now, but is really unclear it looks like if if the fight is over grand jury material, it will just end up being a protracted court battle. Okay. We'll Ross Baker. Let me turn back to you. Because in Libya walked us through sort of where you know where we are now regarding the specifics. Of those redacted portions of the Muller report. But more broadly, the president said what was it was it last week that he may decide soon whether or not to exert executive privilege over some of the subpoenas and the former white members of the White House who've been called to testify. Why is that significant? Well, you know, executive privilege thing is a contested term. The term was first mentioned back in the nineteen fifties. When Senator Joseph McCarthy demanded documents from President Eisenhower and Eisenhower with the advice of his attorney general's of mentioned that there was this thing called executive privilege, and many legal scholars don't even believe it exists. It's just an assertion that presidents make to to avoid disclosing information, which may be embarrassing to them. So, but what we're seeing now in the conversations between congressman neither, but chairman of the judiciary committee, and the Justice department is very typical of these situations very often what goes on in public. There's a lot of posturing that goes on. But basically, they're both sides are trying to get this thing. Several before it gets into the courts, congress really doesn't. Want to have their investigatory powers redefined by the supreme court, and the president doesn't want the whole notion of executive privilege beat to be thrown out as kind of legal fiction, but just to be clear, though, if I remember correctly last month Bill bar said he didn't use executive privilege in when first redacting. The mullahs report is obvious said he was just looking to rules in the special counsels in the special counsel law. Not trying to live is quite correct bar himself. Did not do it the person mentioning that you the privilege is the president not surprisingly. Well, and I'm specifically I think the president said he may exert executive privilege in preventing Don Mcgann, former White House counsel counsel from testifying before congress has executive privilege been used that way to block people from testimony who have been subpoenaed from testifying who've been subpoenaed..

"Whitewater investigation as much as it was focused on a land deal in in Arkansas long before Bill Clinton became president the United States in the end the investigation of the allegations about whitewater were central to the investigation itself. That's that was why was called the whitewater investigation. Not the Monica Lewinsky part of it had anything to do with it. But but set that aside for a second, you know, here we are. We have an investigation which is supposed to be focused on the Russians colluding which really means conspiring with the Trump campaign to manipulate the results of the election. And and again, I come back to this. I'm trying to figure out what a real estate deal that never happened in Moscow has anything to do with the Russian meddling in the election. Right. What do you think this means in terms of the Muller investigation? I was a little bit surprised because my expectation was when the story came out, and you know, we don't have the Muller investigation. You know, speaking publicly about much I was waiting for the well, if they refuted this particular story, then all the other stories they haven't refuted must be accurate, and I haven't seen much of that yet. But what do you think the speaks to are you talking? Have you talked to anybody about sort of their your views and their views there in DC over? Why Muller decided to come out so swiftly against this particular story? Well, I think Muller had to come out swiftly against us. Because I, you know, I it story first broke. I'm I was sitting there going. Well. Okay. Great. So the investigation really is focusing on things that had nothing to do with the election itself. I think by coming out and denying this. It was their way of. Sending a message that they really are focusing on Russian interference in the election. The real question, though, guys is not what it does for the Muller investigation. But sort of how this continual drumbeat plays up on Capitol Hill. Let's say one thing about the shutdown situation. I it is certainly taken the a lot of the stories about he'll oversight into the antics of the Trump team or the operations of the Trump team. It has taken that off the table. I think, you know, more of these stories the more that they come out the more than it will one when they do wind up coming back to investigating team Trump up on the hill. This is the kind of thing that they're going to be looking at why this story though, I mean for for all the stories that have come out all the speculation that's been done for the last couple of years about the molar investigation. And you know, what does it mean that this person's testifying? What does it mean that this person has struck a deal? Why do you think the molar team chose this particular story to come out and and refute it? Well, I just think because it it raises a raises the ante of seriousness. I it does. I mean, we have president ordering somebody's a lot of congress is is a is a fairly serious thing. Which so I think it'd be hooves the Muller team to sort of nip this in the bud before everything sort of goes off, the whales. Plus remember the molar team wants to announce things especially the most bombshell allegations on their own terms. They've asked for an extension of their investigation, which I also found very interesting, right? We all thought that this investigation was going to be wrapping up by the end of end of January beginning of February at the latest now it's looking like it's going to late spring. And so they wanna be able to sort of make their allegations on their own terms. Something as serious as this it. I think they find it necessary to push back. Yeah. You know, you make a good point and actually sort of dovetails back into my trying to get into the head of the left in using the Muller Muller. Refuting of this bud's feed story to their advantage by saying, well, if they responded to this than the other stuff might be true. But the truth of the matter is this was a this was a Brady damning allegation that was made more so more. So than what we've seen in other genuinely impeachable genuinely peachable. So it does, you know, I guess, you know, further examination you kind of sit and go. Yeah. It makes sense that they would come out and push back on this. Because even when I saw the the headline, although I'll I'll I'll make the joke again because it's true when I popped up. I the story came and went so quick I hadn't even seen the new allegation. I thought this was in reference to the the paying off of the polls prior to the campaign that Cohen said the. Trump wanted to do and it wasn't until I went. Oh, oh, oh, boy that looks bad. Glad that that was refuted. Too quickly. And that's a quick it's it came. And went interesting, though, I know interesting though, how the for the for the molar team to quickly come out and respond. I mean, anytime you hear from the team to be so infrequently do it's it's kind of like, they they they popped up. You know? I was surprising. I really had this suspicion that maybe the story had come out of out of team Trump originally 'cause it's it was so outlandish and so provocative. They knew the media was going to run with it. And they knew that it was the kind of serious thing that the Muller team would have to would have to push back against. But I think we ought to remember, and I don't want to say this to your listeners, you know, with any of these the most provocative outrageous stories, I don't mean just regarding Trump. But generally, I think it behooves us all nowadays in twenty nineteen and beyond to take a little bit of time. And wait, you know, because I come back and get my feet was all ablaze on Saturday with. Discussions of what happened at the March for life with this Catholic school from Kentucky. And I'm like, let me just give it a little bit more time to find out. What's going on before react to it? We we we really we have to do this. Otherwise, we get closer and closer to the abyss. Yeah. It's true. And I I hope that these types of stories, and we're going to talk about the other story as well later on today. You know, I I really I hope that we start catching up with how rapidly news gets spread. And how quickly these stories get written in how often they are just flat out wrong. Because look the the three biggest stories of the weekend. Right. The the Trump Saturday in the announcement of of an attempt to find a compromise. But then you have this BuzzFeed story, and then the the mega wearing kids at the rally and two of the three were have been completely turned around when you actually provide the relevant context to the. To the story and the and let's be let's be really clear here. The other part of how damaging this is is that now in the age of dachshund and rapid Duxing on the internet. You know, these kids lives can be ruined immediately. You know, I've got I've got an ex friend from high school who has taken it upon herself to become some kind of activists. She's seriously got anyway. There are problems there. But within I mean, we're talking within minutes. Steve the Email addresses of all of the teachers at this Catholic school in Kentucky without any sort of verification of the context that it is so horrible. What can be done to people? Now that that we really do have to take a step back. It you know, you use that spiraling into the abyss. And that's what it feels like I don't know what the what if what the solution is. Or even if there if there is a solution. Is this? I note we talked about this with Andrew Langer before I wish that there was an option on Twitter, not that people would adopt it. But I wish there was an option on Twitter where you could self pas your response you can put in I have auto response pause on. Meaning you responded to a tweet, but you have other response pas on which means that tweet second to go off for for for twenty minutes. And we're gonna notify you before it does you can decide again, if you still want to go, and and tweet that, but I gotta get my hot takeout. Hottest quickest take out there yet. I've got to have the hottest day can get through and get the most re tweets. And then if it turns out later that the story was wrong, and it might take was based ignoring false information. Yeah. Exactly it move on with your life. Man. I drew. You just underscored the BuzzFeed model for generating news. Yes. Yeah. Hot takes gotta get the hot take out there, man. And, you know, harvest all the clicks while you can and later on when it proves to be false. You just go. Well, you know, we trusted our sources. Yeah. Still do we're getting of attention over at. Hey, find out what type of Jeddah. You really are. And what the color of your lightsaber is by going to BuzzFeed and clicking this quiz. I mean, if you go to if you go to regular BuzzFeed, BuzzFeed news, their top story is eighteen pets with under bites. That'll make you scream TV's. But but but what's number one? I need I need to know. Screamed TV's at the top of your lungs. Sam. Andrew linger. President of the institute for liberty hosted linger cast thank you so much for your time this morning always enjoy our Monday chats thank where we will be next week gentlemen. We just don't know how much can happen in a week. It's amazing tip. Here later buddy people familiar with the matter said BuzzFeed published its story, which it attributed to to federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter the special counsel's office review the evidence to determine if there were any documents or witnesses or witness interviews like those described reaching out to those. They thought might have a stake in the case they found none. These people said that the that the people said is in part, why Muller's office nearly a day nearly a day to dispute the public story in in the interim cable news outlets and other media organizations, including the Washington Post. Dissect it's possible implications. Even as the reporters were unable to independently confirm. It didn't care the footage is amazing from the news outlets talking about the story before the molar investigation came out, and refuted it like some two hundred times they talked about impeaching him. And how this is it. You know, they've got him told that the special counsel's failure to find any support for the story. The BuzzFeed spokesperson said are high level law enforcement sources who have helped corroborate months of accurate reporting on the Trump Tower Moscow deal. It's aftermath had told us otherwise we look forward to further clarification from the special counsel in the near future. Please continue to go to our website and read our story. Right. Right. And they would they would have us believe like if all of this is true. They would have us believe that all of this nonsense. Russia collusion, you know, working together Cohen line. Congress was over a hotel deal. Trump was running for president of the United States. So that he could put a hotel in Moscow. It just crumbles. There's no there's no logic behind this at all. It would be a great hotel that one in DC is fantastic. Really? I mean, it was heated building. It was a renovation done better. If I was Russia. I'd wanna hotel there seriously. Hi, this is one of the few places. Like, I like when I think about those those you have there. This good so tell that's hotels. Good. Would like to have one here. All right coming up.

"The other thing I wanted to mention is all of this talk about impeachment and charges against president. Trump are beginning the drumbeat is getting louder as we approach the first of the year. Do you notice that and that seems to be an indication that Dem's realize they will be in charge after the first of the year and in the house where they're in charge. They will be able to pursue impeachment against President Trump and likely conclude that there were charges to be passed along for a Senate trial now in the Senate, of course, it's controlled by Republicans. And so one would think the president would be able to. Survived because a two-thirds majority would be needed to oust him from office. Do you just think like day one there's gonna be I mean things are obviously going to change. We mean all there's going to be day one when congress changes hands when the when the house changes, I mean, do do you just think it's going to be day one off to the races? That's my guess. Yeah. Yeah. And this is all just a primer. Yeah. After what I heard this weekend because we had heard remember for a little while. But impeachment was off the table. And now, suddenly it's back on. And that's that's interesting to me. So we'll we'll just follow it and report on it. And. Tell you what's happening as as we move along. And we do it in unbiased fashion. You know, do I agree with it personally? No. I don't see any grounds for impeachment. But I understand that people do and they ever different viewpoint on that. Like Brian Dickerson. We're here right now on flashpoint. We'd be we argue about a year and to you and then rate let's go to Shelby township and Ken, you're on the Frank Beckmann show Kabbani. Oh, frank. You know, I remember reading back in the ninety. There was a complete list that they publish all the friends in celsius of Delon, Hillary Clinton. Well, wound up with prison time. Thirty three people on that list. Yeah. During the nineteen nineties that was an incredible broadcast on public broadcasting called once upon a time in Arkansas, and that was on public broadcasting. And what was it about obviously about the? The real problem was not whitewater castle Grundy. It was a phony loan that was put together. Pass through six different people wind up in the pockets of Jim McDougal fund whitewater. That's loan legal work was done by Hillary Rodham Clinton, they talk to the guy who was the lone officer who refuse to sign the loan. His name was Don debt. Don, Denton invest particular program said I call Jim McDougal, and I told them I wasn't gonna sign that long. Because what you're not gonna pass regulators. Why do you have such a deep recollection of this? Because that complete program was he raced from public broadcasting, really Housley. But I recorded the entire VHS. Wow. Well, good for you. That's watch this thing without coming to conclusions. Both gallon. Hillary Clinton belonging orange prison jumpsuits. And the only reason they stay together is because husbands and wives can't testify against each other. That's an interesting take. I appreciate the call. Thank you so much. I I did not see that that what would you call it not a documentary, but I did not see that. Anyway, we'll get to more of your phone calls eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven the Frank Beckmann Frank Beckmann here with Chris L Berta from Principia, Chris is not your everyday wealth management expert. He's got a different approach one that I think you should listen to you say, you're not for everybody. I've told people how you're the real deal, you're different. How would you best describe that? Well, we want to be humble I and we have an unwavering concentration and focus on the preservation of assets our goal. Frank number one is to make sure that we're never going to be losing money that we're gonna count on to live. So for folks who are going to live another twenty thirty forty years, it's really imperative that we do a good job preserving the assets. Also, we need to be paying taxes on the seed not on the harvest and that is becoming a bigger. Bigger issue. We're in the third lowest tax bracket in American history. Let's take advantage of it. The government lets us convert to Roth because they're desperate for income tax dollars at this point. And if we have that kind of opportunity, it's almost like a lotto ticket to be able to be unshackled from taxation for the next few decades. You talked a lot about seed harvest and Roth IRA's through the university classes that you conduct throughout the metro Detroit area. Will you're right in the university classes, we talk a lot about the opportunity to convert summer all of the traditional IRA money to Roth. It's more sensitive than it used to be because Medicare, of course, now is based on the amount of money we make so when we look potentially at paying in a quadruple or or quintupled type pricing on Medicare premiums for the next twenty to thirty years. And also, you know, what might happen long-term with tax rates going up. It's a really really good time to look at maybe moving some of that tax infested money to a tax free format and for many people. It's the ticket Wall Street's not crazy about it. But that's an awfully good reason to look if they don't love it. You just might folks I've. Gotten to know Chris over the last year, he's the real deal. He's honest knowledgeable, and unlike any other financial planner you've ever met, a real wealth management expert..
