"I just had one other point that I think it is important underscored separate issue and that is Countries that are trying to interfere as we speak with the election process that we're in right now. The fact that he said that he believes based on the intelligence that he says, he's seen it is China. That is much more aggressive. Now than Russia that flies in the face of CNN's reporting and others that it is actually Russia's still just like in two thousand sixteen that is far more aggressive and we know that China is the country that the trump administration and more. Importantly, the trump campaign is trying to use as a campaign issue against Joe, Biden and to use it. As against really the corona virus and against everything that they hand to show the ills of this country. That is not Donald Trump's fault. But another entity or countries fault and I thought that was very fascinating that he leaned so far into that all you have to do wolf is look at the statement that was issued by bill, Evans who's the top? Official of the Director National Intelligence who's handling the election security and he said that the Russians are actively interfering to hurt the Biden campaign what he said about what the Chinese and the Iranians are doing is that they are they have a preference for president trump to lose the election So if you listen to that, if you read that statement, what you see is that there's one country that is actively interfering in. The current election according to that public statement from the deny and that is Russia. Now, look the Chinese are serious threat and I think the attorney general was trying to portray that without divulging intelligence. But you know I think it is an issue that you know he's trying to draw distinction that Bill Evans is not making your voice sort of kind of downplayed it. Right? He was talking about this idea of you kind of. Hack something, hacking email, and dump information, and then social media. We obviously know from what we saw in twenty sixteen.

During your tenure as Attorney General of the United States, how many indictments you brought against people committing voter fraud I couldn't tell you off the top of my head, but several I know a handful. I can't I don't know several. Does it sound like too many? I don't know I. Don't know how many we have. I know there are a number of investigations right now. Some very big ones in states.

Him directly that he's ready to send sheriff's law enforcement and US attorneys to polling places on election day you're the attorney general can the president do that legally?

Our Office of National Intelligence revealed publicly last month that Russia is working to help president trump get elected while both China and Iran prefer Joe Biden to win. First of all, do accept that Russia is once again interfering in the US presidential election. I accept that there. There are some preliminary activity that suggests that they might try again. What does that mean? But that's all I'm saying. You think that Russia is the you see you've seen intelligent it wouldn't surprise. It wouldn't surprise me if Russia tries something again. Of the same General John Roth before I mean this influence basically is two kinds of things. It's hacking dumb. You get into someone's mail system then try to disclose embarrassing documents wouldn't surprise me if they try something like that or any other country tries it. The other way is you know social media and putting things add on social because the intelligence community says Russia China and Iran are seeking to interfere in the US presidential for various reasons but mostly they want so descent in our country exacerbate racial tensions, etc. that of those three countries that the intelligence community has pointed to Russia China and Iran, which is the most the sort of the most aggressive in this area..

Obviously, there's so much going on, and it occurs to me. We have a man who writes the laws. We have the man who enforces the laws, and we have popular calls for utter lawlessness in the country. How do we restore order? Well it's going to. It's going to take both state and local government as well as federal government. Federal Government is best positioned to address this kind of violence and lawlessness after it occurs because we don't have FBI agents walking the beat. and in fact when when the real violent started around may twenty fifth six and so forth. we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country and there thirty five of them around the country it involves all state and local jurisdictions all the federal agencies and it's the system we designed to follow terrorists, and now they are starting to go full bore cranking out investigations indictments against the people who are involved in this violence so we've had scores of indictments already from for such things as arson destruction of federal property, things like that and we. We have right now about five hundred investigations underway, so it's picking up pace, and we are committed to holding accountable. The people engaged in this, but we still have to try to stop it before it happens, and that's where the burden is right now on state and local and in many places. They're not stepping up to the plate there. They're not doing their job, so I know it's early, but but how much indications are y'all saying of coordination planning rather than spontaneous acts of violence, right? We are we are seeing Strong evidence of of coordination and many of these violent. Episodes. From the mentally what you have here is you have demonstrators. Some of them go there with the intent of demonstrating, but you have a group of provocateurs agitators, sometimes a significant group that tried to convert those into violent activity and They seem to be very well coordinated when they show up a number of Moore associated with the movement called Antiga, but they go by various names, but frequently anarchistic.

"Attorney General William Barr is the country's top law enforcement officer a role that is meant to be above politics but critics argue that the Attorney General has gone out of his way to protect president trump they said the fact the bar delayed release of the mall report instead issuing a summary exonerating trump of wrongdoing and bar with how the whistleblowers complained about trump's phone call with Ukraine's president the one that eventually led to trump's impeachment and then this week when the attorney general's justice department intervened in the case of trump's longtime friend Roger stone the DOJ reduced prosecutors recommended prison time after stone was convicted of lying to Congress now the house Judiciary Committee wants answers and Attorney General Barr has agreed to testify next month George Terwilliger served as bill bars deputy in the early nineteen nineties and he joins us now on the line thank you so much for making time to talk with us this morning so I'll just ask you a big picture question first in his confirmation hearing last year Attorney General Barr said quote the role of the Attorney General is to keep the enforcement process sacrosanct from political influence do you think he has lived up to that you know I do and I I think what one way you can see that in the context Rachel of this particular matter concerning the stone sensing cases just take a a short step back and look at what is the in question here what we're talking about is a sentencing recommendation and in fact a sort of minor issue in that recommendation as to whether it's going to recommend a prison sentence of six years or why years and the Attorney General decided as truly the chief prosecutor that the recommendation that had come from the career prosecutors dedicated to the case and no doubt having strong feelings about it was excessive I don't think just because this is the case that is at the intersection of long politics that the Attorney General should refrain from acting where he sees a matter that he thinks deserves his attention as a as a professional matter not as a political matter well let me ask about the timing though because as you know president trump waiting directly on the sentencing recommendation that was handed down by a long time career prosecutors the president tweeted out quote this is a horrible and very unfair situation the real crimes were on the other side as nothing happens to them cannot allow this miscarriage of justice exclamation point so he tweeted that out in the early morning hours on February eleventh and then later that same day is when the attorney general's justice department intervene to decrease stone sentence is that just a coincidence or did the Attorney General choose the president over his own career prosecutors I don't think it's either and in fact it least in what I think is very credible and detailed reporting by The Washington Post the post is reporting that the decision to change the recommendation after the original filing was made on Monday evening and taking place over night before the president tweeted that's point number one point number two I would agree that it would perhaps be better if the president didn't tweet about matters of this nature that are before the justice department but on the other hand there is a level of transparency as to his position that might not otherwise be seen and number three I I think it's it's erroneous to characterize this is career prosecutors versus political again based on the public reporting there were career prosecutors in the US attorney's office in Washington who also questioned the original recommendation and while the US attorney apparently decided who is a political appointee to go along with the original recommendation at least initially there there were people career people on his staff who disagreed as well as apparently people of a career background on the staff at the leadership positions in the justice department's the president also sent another tweet congratulating the Attorney General for quote taking charge of a case that was totally out of his control so I mean even the if if if you argue that bars intervention was appropriate is it a problem for bar even just in terms of optics that you have the the president congratulating him on interfering in this way yes it is that that's a that's a fine point but I think when one agrees to serve in any presidential administration you take your presidents as you find them and you know this president does tend to speak out and it again I'd say there's a certain level of transparency to the public that there this isn't some nixonian behind the scenes improper influence I do think it would be if the president would be better advised to refrain on some of these things but he also I think feels very strongly that for three years in his administration he was hounded by a case under the special counsel that that really went no where at the end of the day and then a lot of people got lots of indictments as you know including well done but not no indictments that had anything to do with Russian collusion and which was the point of the investigative exercise to begin with they were they were status crimes and process crimes having to do with the investigation and I certainly am not expressing any sympathy for Mr stone or his position I don't think the Attorney General is either after all he is saying look we agree should go to prison it's just a question of for how long I'm gonna play a tape if if you can indulge me of of David Laughlin he ran the justice department's counter intelligence section from twenty fourteen to twenty eighteen and he has a different point of view than you do let's listen to this and then we'll talk on the other side of the implications are two fold one it that reflects a further corrosion of the intrinsic integrity of the department of justice itself in its processes worst perhaps it corrodes public confidence in the integrity and independence of the department of justice and if the public loses faith in the department of justice as an independent arbiter of the rule of law that we have lost something sacred in this country in seconds remaining I apologize for that what's your response I I agree that it's very important to maintain public confidence in the integrity of the justice department's justice department's functions and the more free from political interference that those functions are the better but hi there at the same time I don't think that can override the responsibility of the leadership of the justice department to in appropriate cases step in and do what they do I hope very much that when the Attorney General gets an opportunity in front of the house Judiciary Committee or otherwise to explain what he's doing that the public will be reassured okay George Terwilliger he served in the justice department for fifteen years we appreciate your time this morning this is NPR news and programming now note more about that topic coming up on KQED on forum at nine this morning on KQED public radio now to the topic of traffic.
