"I'm Dennis Prager. And go to Andrew proc- a little bit honored the. He was straight from Fox News to lie show. I appreciate it deeply. Formal from prosecutor himself, and, of course national review, and Fox News. Aley McCarthy, I always begin with some funny banter with you. But I love the the mood because I very, very annoyed. So I will do something I haven't done with you. I'd like you to react to I reaction. Then give me yours what I saw today, reminded me of John F Kennedy's famous book profiles, and courage. But he would be in the chapters of profiles in cowardice. If that is too strong. Obviously, I want you to say so, but that is that is my first takeaway. Go ahead. Then I can't really disagree with that. Particularly on the obstruction front. I think that Muller in entirely wrong. I think he's using the a wealthy the office of legal cabin Foale guidance that says that a sitting president cannot be guided as a rationalization for not making a decision that it was an obligation to make. It's always the allegation of the prosecutor who was assigned to the investigation to make a decision about whether charges should be filed or not. And then if you decide that there's enough evidence to bring charges if the Justice department at this point wants to step in for policy reasons and say that the president can't be charged and it's on the Justice department to do that. But it was footballer to make that decision. And I think what he's done here in underscore. What certainly what I've been saying for. A couple of years, what I think, number of other people said, as well, and that is always an impeachment inquiry. So what he's done is, he's basically said, here's my evidence. I'm a prosecutor. I'm not supposed to lay out my evidence because you don't charge someone you don't do that. But Ignace system the. Suggesting today, it's for congress to decide whether well when to discipline an allegedly way would president. So here's by evidence. And, oh, by the way, I didn't make a decision about whether there was obstructed. But if I had found no obstruction I would've said, so I mean, you know, how hard is it to figure out where you're going with that? Exactly the very fact that he chose to speak. Why didn't he let the report speak for itself because he was the president impeached? Well, certainly whether he wants to or not, you know, I Don I don't know if I can get into his at that law. But I'll say this much, if he did want the president impeach-. I don't see what more we could have done than what he did today, right? Explain to me as a lay person. I'm the layperson your the lawyer. Can you? Obstruct justice. I mean, I assume the answer is, yes, but I assume that that is, what would have to be shown that one has obstructed Justice on a crime that never occurred. The answer to that is yes. And probably the best example of that Denison, the Clinton situation where there was a lot of effort made to frustrate the inquiry but it wasn't because it was an underlying crime. That had been committed underlying activity that happened, that would have been politically exposed explosive needed to be concealed. So it's very often the case that people obstruct Justice in order to, to sideline the investigation of frustration. The investigation of an underlying prime I would say that, that is the standard situation. That's what happens most of the time. But it is not necessary to there to be an underwriting crime to frustrate investigation into what do they point to with regard to obstruction of than firing? Komi. Well, I think they say what, what they say, is that he may took actions at various points in order to frustrate the inquiry by putting pressure on people who were conducting to connect to a certain salt, and I think the strongest evidence that he has report the contention that the president when Don Mcgann the White House counsel to change his version of events on to say that six months earlier that the president hadn't directed him to fire Mullah. So the witness tampering is, I think the strongest allegation in volume two. I'm not saying he moves witness tampering because I think Torney general bars analysis of this lease correct? You'd have to weigh all of the evidence of intent it has you have to corrupt intent in order to make this. Kind of an obstruction taste and under these circumstances. The president could have shut the investigation down at any point, he didn't have to make the White House staff available to the prosecutor. He certainly didn't have to make his White House counsel bailable to the prosecutor thought would be very hard to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the president had the corrupt intent to obstruct an investigation under circumstances where he could have shut it down. He didn't any made all kinds of evidence available to if that would not have otherwise had. Please explain to me and my listeners the argument that Moeller made today that. She is not in. He does not have the ability nor does anybody else to, to bring a sitting president to trial. Is that correct? I, I don't want to go further if that's not correct. Yes, there, there is that has been promulgated by the office of legal counsel at the Justice department, which is kind of Dennis the lawyers lawyers at the Justice department, and it was really I promulgated in the Watergate era. It was tightened up and reaffirmed in the during the Clinton controversy. But what it essentially says is a sitting president may not be indicted, it doesn't mean that the president may never be indicted, just means that as long as he is president of indictment cannot be returned to KFI. Okay. So I got that, right. I want that's just the preface to my question. I don't understand. Why that is if at all relevant to his. Work to, to what he was hired to do. Yet dentist. I couldn't agree more. And I say that as somebody who has both been aligned prosecutor handling investigations. And somebody who's been a supervisor in a US attorney's office in the Justice department who had to apply Justice department policy, and what happens normally is, is two different tracks, which is your the investigator on the case. Your job is to go off, investigate the case, and come back and tell me the supervisor do we have enough evidence to charge or not. If you come back and tell me there's not enough evidence to charge. That's the end of it. If you come back and tell me there is enough evidence to charge. But there's some policy, some overarching policy reason that would cut against charging, then it is on me, the supervisor is the one responsible for enforcing Justice department policies to decide whether we go. Forward or not. But that's a totally separate question from whether there's a sufficient case or not. What to do is melt the two things in order to rationalize not making the one decision that he was needed today. Exactly. Why isn't that obvious to everybody? Oh, I think you found to a lot of people. But I think that Dennis, here's the here's the other reality that I think we have to bear in mind. And that is congress does not need a prosecutable crime in order to impeach in other words, high crimes and misdemeanors does not necessarily mean an indictable penal crime. That's, that's in the penal code congress can impeach on the basis of abuses of power that either are or not low are not federal crimes till I think what Muller is saying here and this is why I think what he did was was. So disingenuous is here is all of my evidence that I came up with the pen or eleven different transactions in which it could be found that the president of struck Justice or tampered with witnesses I because of Justice department. Policy. Am unable to say that the president should be charged with this, but they may very well be felonies. It's just that I can't say that because of this policy, but you congress who don't need a felony to proceed on obstruction of Justice under the constitution, your the ones who have to decide what to do about this evidence that I have found about abuse of power that I can't do anything more with. So good luck to you. Okay. It's, it's the bright day in American history. In my opinion, Andy McCarthy, thank you so much. I know how many people are demanding time now. I really.

So Michael Cohen by his own admission is a PHD in threats and intimidation all I'm doing is saying that if someone is gonna come before the congress and continue their stream of lies that they ought to be prepared to set the four corners of those lies like we already know that Michael Cohen wise, the congress, we already know that Michael Cohen allies to law enforcement. Now, we're gonna find out if Michael Cohen lies to his own family. Have you passed your feelings on this to your colleagues who are going to be talking to a regular conversations with my colleagues about the witnesses to come before committees? And it's my hope that will provide a robust testing of Michael Cohen, truthfulness and brassy because he's a liar through and through. Thanks, everybody. You're welcome. Where do you get the information? From isn't that a big question here where that came from dense one question did he deliver it to someone to then ask him about it? Or is someone already in the committee who said I'm going to be asking this. This guy's Twitter. Profile bio was probably serving the first district in congress quote. He's a machine handsome and going places says at real Donald Trump. Oh, man. Yeah. He's he's he's actually does. He's been targeted a number of times for ridicule by by shows including that touch baron Cohen show. It's very he was almost caught on yet. They they went to his office. I tried to catch him one of their you know, there's things and they weren't able to. He didn't fall for it. Now, he's good looking. He's strapping and he likes any any does very proud of himself would all fine members of congress at tended. I don't think have some of those qualities. I don't think he'll go shortlist quite as much as a congress of kindergarten. But he's still he's going to. He's a. He's out there. This is this is ridiculously stupid on his part. Would you do it? Come out. You know, it's going to be embarrassing. If it's true. Then what do you need to fight president? Okay. Let me explain something to you. Michael cohen. Got here because he was the lawyer and best friend and willing to take a bullet for the president. And he lied to congress about how great Donald Trump was remember that he lied about his own business to isn't that kind of get them in trouble. Yes. But he also lied about things pertaining to the prisoners. And so now, the Republicans are like, yeah. Look at me. It was a liar. When he was lying about the things. The president was doing is that don't see that's not the best thing to bring up right now. Because you can you can make I think out most humans forget about America's humans would say that a guy who got busted going to go to jail for lying to congress for perjury. Is gonna come back and wants to set the record straight by telling the truth, people could believe that that's going to happen. Now, Michael Cohen, I'm gonna tell him. He was patient zero the guys that I hated surrounded Donald Trump. Yeah. Patients here, I still do. He's he's a bad guy. He's everything that that is the worst of the worst when it comes to like thuggish lawyers who want to protect their their clients who are doing the wrong things. I just the whole thing rubs me totally wrong. But he's not up there because he was a lifelong enemy of the president United States. Republicans seem to have a very short memory about that. And they're hoping against hope that other Republicans. Mt. Republican leaders they they want their constituents voters to have a short memory about that. I can't believe how absolutely. This is just insane. To me how. Republican leaders Republican elected officials in Washington are taking. For granted this notion that their voters that members are probably lifelong in many cases, members of their party are not gonna see through this. It's so insulting. And I don't I don't see this ending well for them. And that's the thing. It's very important. You gotta have a strong Republican party to have strong United States of America. I believe that firmly. And I don't think this is good for either purpose Kevin you might want to change your Twitter bio from man on the make says Roe Conn. Man on the make. Mike Ditka muscle muscle mass. Oh, man. The man. That's true. Yeah. From the Conn show. Thank you. Break here. I see that before it gets moved along to just outta my mind right now, I don't know today.

"witness tampering" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM

"Again, this is the Buck Sexton show. Analysts. Remember? Sex. He has to make a decision is he going to be the people's lawyer. Where's he going to be the president's lawyer, clearly this president regards the attorney general is one of his minions. He has no respect for the rule of law. In fact, utter contempt for judges and judicial process, and he has denounced relentlessly and unstintingly the FBI and other law enforcement, absolutely unprecedented shattering all the norms. William far is a professional at least he should be. And he's going to have to stand up and speak out for the department of Justice and the rule of law and that will make his ride pretty wild. I'm sure denying dick is really going to sway bar one way or the other with his usual slimy antics, they're the people he'd be the people's lawyer or one of Trump's minions look bar is a guy who has done this before. Okay. He's been to this rodeo before. He was well respected then he is well respected now, obviously can do the job. And that's why even the lunatics in the Senate on the democrat side could not come up with a real rationale to try and stop him. So he's now the attorney general, and thankfully, it looks like we are heading into the end of the Muller nightmare. Although as I've said not going to result in an end to investigations of Trump. It's not like they're gonna just say, okay. You know, what we're going to move on to other stuff now. No, they're going to keep drilling down and drilling down. Because when they can't win the argument they figure they can win just through harassment. Which is the point here just through harassment. So we'll see the special counsel ends next week. I've been telling you that for a while it looks like we lotta people reported on it, and it would make sense. But in the meantime, got some other updates for you, Roger stone. I have to tell you. I kind of like Roger, you know, every time I've talked to him interviewed him. I like Roger I liked Carter page to Carter page are really really nice friendly unpretentious, dude. And Roger stone. Look, he's a he's a character for sure. And I bet if you get on the wrong side of him. He's not very pleasant. I kinda like Roger stone. I'm a pundit. I'm allowed to like and dislike people I don't have to pretend to be neutral. And it's pretty amazing the career that he has had in politics. Stretching back for many many decades. Well, anyway, Roger is whereas a political operative at least Roger is not able to speak publicly anymore about his case that just came out today. Federal judge Amy Berman restricted stones ability to speak publicly about his case because she says stone posted and then removed a photo of the judge on Instagram that had crosshairs. Now stone said it was a Celtic cross but had crosshairs behind her head. So he gave a formal apology or rather his lawyers wrote up a formal apology for him. And I guess we're moving past the matter now, but stone is no longer. So I'm glad we got an interview with when we could over rising. I should have had him on radio. I didn't even think about that. But stone is no longer going to be able to tell the public what he thinks about the trial. He faces I'm gonna tell you this. I spoke to a democrat lawyer recently off the record about the like, he thinks stone. He grease with me because I said, I've read the stuff I think if stone fights this he won't be all the charges, but he will beat some of them the witness tampering charge is bull. It's a bull charge. He can beat that. But the way our system the way the federal prosecution works is if even if he beats that charge, but he goes to trial and other charges, and they get I mean, he's going to prison for years and years. So is he really going to see is he going to see this all the way through is he willing to see this all the way through. Well, we'll have to see. But I do think he'll beat you. Mark my words, if this goes, if this goes all the way, I think he'll win on the witness tampering charges, which will just show you even though it means a Roger will probably go to prison on the lying under oath part of this. It'll show you that the special castle was looking to just crush anybody around from and that even when at other charges that they could have made that they were trying to do the count of endless counts they were trying to stack the deck against him. And one other thing that's in the Muller. Deep state edgy Trump investigation world that's a little bit of a rough transition there. But you know, it's live radio. So. Federal prosecutors have charged an analyst with the Internal Revenue Service for illegally disclosing confidential reports about Michael Collins Bank records, this was to show that Cohen was trying to profit from his access to the Trump White House, and you might see buck who really cares about this guy. John Friday IRS analyst, which you know. Hey, I'm in Delaware as an IRS analyst. Why are we talking about this guy? Well, because yet again, we have a federal bureaucrat another one of these government employees who was willing. Was willing to throw his career and perhaps his freedom away. Just to get a little Pat on the head from some journals at the Washington Post and the New Yorker. Assuming this is true. Again, assuming that this is true. That's that's what I think we all need to keep in mind here. It's possible. It's not true. But it's probably. Why is it that you didn't have this? I speak to you often about the mentality. In the federal government that is status in its inclinations and therefore favors Democrats and favors the system in general. So with all that why is it that we expect that they'll be these kinds of leaks against Trump more deep staters that are deciding to take a an opportunity to just put something out there. The news should take down. Trump look at that woman. Who was gosh. She had very her name was like victory champion or something. Right. What was her name reality winner? I think it was that was that her name. And look, my name's Buck Sexton. I know but reality winners quite a name. I think she didn't. She get five years in federal prison for leaking classified information. Because she thought that it proved Russia, collusion or something? I mean, people are hysterical inside the government, and they will abuse. These hysterical left is inside the government will abuse their sensitive and classified access illegally as long as it hurts Trump or someone around Trump. You just did not have this. During the Obama years. Nobody was risking their freedom to try to damage Obama in the news cycle for a day or two nobody in the federal government was doing that. Now, they just weren't. And of course, Obama was horrible on leakers as we know. He was the worst the worst of user of the espionage act in in American history and the most aggressive president in dealing with the in going after the press probably since FDR, Woodrow Wilson. So going on one hundred years the media, they loved Obama. He could do no wrong. So they they weren't particularly they they were strongly worded letter. That's not very nice Obama. But they didn't do anything serious. They were certainly weren't opposing the administration based on that. But this guy who is now charged with leaking the tax tax information about about Michael Cohen, you're going to see more of this you we should all expect I fully expect that someone is going to leak Trump's tax returns at some point. It's just did they're waiting to see if the process if now the democrat, congress can get it. But if they are stymied in this if they're not able to leak Trump's tax returns to things will happen. I think I'm making a prediction. I don't know. Somebody will just aside from within the IRS from within the government to violate their ethical and legal obligation to get Trump's tax returns out there. And what we will see is a total nothing burger. It's gonna make the molar report when it comes out look like the godfather series. I mean, it's just gonna be so boring. There's nothing in Trump's taxes. That is worth anyone's time. I assure you. I think he doesn't want to give it out to the public right now. Just because he doesn't want to because they keep telling me has to and that's just Trump's way. But I think somebody is going to leak from within the IRS is gonna lead Trump's tax returns. That's my and the press is gonna say oh, look at this. We just happen to have the tax returns people are willing to risk prison to embarrass this president think about that not to expose wrongdoing to embarrass this president or anyone around him. That's how Trump derangement syndrome has infected the federal bureaucracy. We'll be right back..

"Program on KOA NewsRadio vice President Mike Pence, and and the last two on attorney general Jeff Sessions, and so you know, it was disappointing. I'm not going to put a day, you try to put a pre picture on it. Right. I was disappointed. The president offered me. A lot of other things secretary of labor circular homeland security special assistant to the president the White House just five weeks ago. He brought me talk about becoming White House chief of staff. Right. So the president I have a great relationship. But I'm those two items. You know, I certainly was disappointed. And and I I didn't get what I thought I might. Also, the guy who was doing the transition, but that didn't last long either. But what do you think's going on? Now. I I didn't realize that you had a history with the Kushner family, no idea that you had in fact, put Jared Kushner's father in jail. I I guess that would be an issue if Jared Kushner has the president's ear is that what happened? Yeah. I think that's pretty much. What happens you remember? The transition went on for six months. Started that work in may. And then the election came obviously in November two days after the election. Steve Bannon brought the end is detailed in the book and fired me. And when I pressed him as to why he sits me, well, it was Jared idea. And then he said the kids would taking an axe to your head ever since I got here with ancient bitterness. I guess. The U railroad his father or father do something wrong. And you put them in jail. Well, his father pled guilty. Eight to eighteen counts of tax evasion federal election contribution fraud and witness tampering and let me tell your audience real quickly. The witness tampering was his company, which was a family company was getting investigated for this tax evasion stuff his sister. Who's one of the owners of the company had been subpoenaed to the grand jury to testify when that happened? Coast. They're hired a prostitute to seduce his sister's husband, oh, come on man who hold on videotape it, and then he said the videotape to his own sister. Well, there you go, and that's a family. That's a thanksgiving. I don't want to go to it's Chris Christie. His book is called let me finish Trump the Kushner's ban in New Jersey the power of in your face politics stuff like that you haven't heard anywhere else in this book the book right now. So so Jared, according to Steve Bannon, I'm guessing you never talked to Jerry directly about it had an ax to grind and and from day one. He did everything he could get you out, and you feel that's why you're out. Yeah. And I think there's a there's a long chapter in the book called Jarrett's meltdown which talks, but the day that I was made transition chairman in may of sixteen I was in Donald Trump's office at Trump Tower, and he came into the room what he knew what was going on. It's ruptured the beating and tried to talk Donald out of it with me sitting there while. And with your folks, your listeners will love to read this chapter because it is unbelievable. And ultimately, Donald Trump stood up the right thing Kristie doing his job your father pled guilty. What did you expect Krista to right keeping Christmas? Transition chairman. Jared could send you behind the scenes, it's only a family member Ken to continue to pound away. I think the president elect just listen, I don't want to hear this anymore. No, one person is that portent. And that's it. You know, I got got rid of Dallas with that being said, I still talk to the president once every two weeks. Right. We still, you know, ask for advice. I still offer advice freely and we're still friends, but that's because I love my country. And I admire the president what he's trying to do. It is Chris Christie, the Republican former New Jersey Governor, we don't have a ton of time Chris. But I gotta know how does the Republican become the New Jersey Governor what's special sauce? Did you bring? That a democratic state a blue state of historically blue state for a long time said yes to you. Why why did that happen because they got tired of elected people who are raising their taxes expanding the size of their government, and and not being accountable. And so they wanted to hire a former federal prosecutor go any cleanest thing up and in the first race against John Cortana got outspent three to one and I won by four and a half points. Got forty eight percent of the vote if three way race, but when I ran free election four years later after watching governed for four years I won with sixty one percent of the vote. One sixty eight percent of independence and had a smashing goes actually by victory and the way you do deliver for people on what you promise because a lot of people who went the pack. That day said we don't always agree with Christy. But we respected them. We're voting for him. And I think that's the way you do it. It's the only way to do it in the first in the first term to the media, not attack you as closely as it did in the second term. I mean, obviously, you're shutting down bridges because you don't like people. That's that's going. Is that what had happened? They realized not only is it going to get reelected, but he's going to win in the virtual landslide. We have to make this guy the villain. Somehow. Did they just not new it in the first term? Yeah. They did not do it nearly as much in the first term. And I remember the first term we really turned things around. We turned the economy around. Then we have hurricane sandy. And we were rebuilding the state after hurricane sandy and really getting your claim for the job we were doing. So it was very difficult for them to come after the first term. But when I do the real turning point for me was went after I was reenacted packed. They did a poll a national poll in December of thirteen that showed me beating Hillary Clinton. The media just went okay enough with this guy. Let's go you brought up hurricane sandy and can get the book. Let me finish Trump the Kushner's ban in New Jersey and the power of in your face politics. A lot of people on the right? A lot of Republicans in this country think the optics of you walking with Obama over the damaged area helped him get reelected. Have you had any thoughts about that? Or or he was the president. We had a disaster. We wanted them there. Well, I have talked about it. And I think what people expect of the of your governor is when your state lost at three hundred sixty five thousand homes destroyed in twenty four hours that if the president offers to come that you're gonna walk with him shown the damage and ask for help. Right. Because what I did. But here's the thing that a lot of Republicans don't know about in the book after Obama left on Wednesday. I called Mitt Romney personally and invited him to come to New Jersey on Friday to do the very same thing the rock Obama did right and bit wrong. He turned it down. What is what is up with Mitt Romney? I mean, I don't understand the guy. He he takes Trump's money that he hates Trump. He doesn't op Ed, but they loved Trump please endorse me, Mr President. And now something that I didn't know until your book came out. You did offer him the same and it wasn't even for optics. It was you could be the president soon. Come here walk through the damaged area would excuse. Could. He have given you to not come. He just said let me get back to you. And then you have a staff person called back might chief staffer said governor Romney won't be available while never spoke to me about it. And I and I as you know, had been the keynote speaker at the convention top surrogate until he selected Paul Ryan. Right. And and I you know, I wanted him to come in for that reason might my reason for inviting you wasn't four days. This could be your problem. Yeah. So Republicans want to blame me for Barack Obama winning a you know, how this works. The only people who win or lose a campaign are the candidates and blue that by not coming to New Jersey and standing with the same way. Rocco baba day. But more importantly stand with the people of my state, and that sets a certain examples the rest of the country that I think it was a lot more damaging than anything. I said about Barack Obama other your hundred percent, right. When his staffer said, he's not available. You should have said the Oval Office will be available then let me finish Trump. The Kushner is Bannon, New Jersey and the power of in your face politics. It's former Governor Chris Christie two last quick ones and Omori over time. But I still have to do this had you become the attorney general how different might this whole Muller thing have gone. Would you recused yourself and all that I would not have recused myself? I would have run the investigation. There would have been no Bob Muller because sessions was a supporter like you were he recused himself because he supported the president in the campaign. That I thought it was ridiculous. I think it was completely ridiculous. And by the way, if he was gonna do that he told the president bats before he asks for the job. And I couldn't agree more advanced president in a big way last question now that the book is out. Of course, the president knows all the inside baseball with with the Kushner's. And so on and the leaks and everything else. Do you talk about everything in this book? And it's an amazing book get it it's called let me finish is the relationship going to change or President Trump understands. This is your story, and you get to tell it. President understands I told him about the book all along he encouraged me to write the book. And and the president is my friends. He's been my friend for seventeen years, and I just I know him it won't change. It is a former Governor Chris Christie get this book right now, let me finish Trump. The Kushner is Bannon New Jersey in the power of in your face politics. Really, just an absolute pleasure to talk to you governor. Let's talk again soon. Tacky packs back. We appreciate the governor coming on. I hadn't talked to him before. I actually for a minute thought that I did. But I had not talked to them before. And I really do think that were were cut from the same sort of cloth. We don't hold back an awful lot. And what he's had to save the cushion. I didn't know what he had to say about about offering Mitt Romney to come to New Jersey. I didn't know that either after hurricane sandy. I wonder if you did one eight hundred five zero one seventy eighty joepags dot com. Stay right here. Hey.

"One count. Of witness tampering. Again, they arrived before dawn there before six or just after six AM a dozen officers were told the FBI agent shouted FBI warrant. And you can see it all play out right here. This is just remarkable. It's just remarkable to watch what they call. That's an FBI open the door. And now they're about to say another warning. I want this is called, you know, the the grab shot midnight vernacular, and it is remarkable to watch this all unfold, you could see Roger still a little bit behind that door. And yes, scattered operating procedure for the show up heavily armed in riot gear like this. But they didn't do this for other people connected any investigation. So it is remarkable that they did this without warning without any indication is stones Laura's beforehand that this would happen. We don't know. Also, if they executed a search warrant on it as an just told us the reason they do that is because they fear that the person's going to be a flight risk. So they wanted to do it under the cover of darkness with surprise. Or they think that there is so much evidence evidence inside the room inside the house that they don't want to give anybody lead-time heads up to try to hide some of that evidence. So that's what we just watched this morning unfold. So what's so interesting about this is? That. The fact that they went there. First of all, if you get a chance to look at the video, they really does look like, they're, you know, paratroopers descending on some crazy. Heavily armed John Dillinger's. But I mean, I guess that's what they normally. Do. They spoke with CNN reporter later on who said that she actually interviewed Roger stone as late as last night. And he said he didn't think this was going to happen. So that's pretty crazy. That that basically as late as last night. He was saying he was talking to a CNN reporter and say, yeah, no, they're not going to arrest me. They're not gonna do anything yet. Of course this morning there. They are. And of course, everybody is saying that it is very much process charges depending on which side of the aisle, you're on they are either dismissing this or or sort of whipping up, but. Let's see the indictment basically says is that it doesn't say on the campaign who knew about stones says that. Stone sought emails from WikiLeaks that could damage Trump opponents while in coordination with senior Trump campaign officials, so this doesn't have anything to do with Russia. Another thing that a lot of people who are supporting Donald Trump will quickly point out that certainly talks about the pedestrian emails and his he is any sort of connection he had with WikiLeaks. It reads after the July twenty second 2016 release of stolen emails, a senior Trump campaign official was directed to contact stone about any additional releases and what other damaging information had. That this organization had regarding the Clinton campaign stone thereafter told the Trump campaign about potential future releases of damaging material. Now, it also I mean, it's got direct quotes where he says you're going to have. You know emails every day coming from a from Clinton's campaign from slash Clinton's. Lash her campaign officials now I mean, obviously, that's pretty much. What happened? It is interesting sort of the. The way people are looking back on this win win. They're talking about this specific situation. Of course, there is that huge news moment. And this was during I believe the democratic convention where Donald Trump said absolutely Russia. Gimme all the information. You have for it. And then there's also course. The connection that a lot of people are making this morning is I E mail dump came on the same day that Trump's Hollywood access tape broke, which was really Z most damaging tape. By far of anything that happened during that campaign. Now, I will say I was listening to somebody talk about this today, and they they sort of insinuated or they outright set that we d- Hillary Clinton campaign. Emails dropped that it like totally took the attention away from Trump's Hollywood access tape. And I'm sorry that is in so many ways not true at that point. We were all able to juggle multiple balls wral. I've never still huge. I would argue. No, I would actually argue that there that there wasn't all that much coverage of Hillary's Email. I'm agreeing with you. Where thing is is that the access Hollywood tape was just so huge that nobody was paying adults. And by then it'd be something like having the air conditioner on because it's been going on for years with Hillary. Okay. I get it. You know? So. Yep. And so, of course, journalists had gone through these were going through these emails and finding things they thought were interesting, but I can promise you that none of those made the front page. They didn't they got coverage. But they certainly did not in any way take away from the Hollywood accidents coverage now, regardless of whether it worked or not you could definitely argue that this was very obvious attempt to try and get coverage off of Trump, and that would be one hundred percent accurate in the fact that it didn't work doesn't mean that there wasn't an attempt to do this. And and the whole argument here is you know, that all of these forces or working together somehow to ensure that Trump got elected and one of those ways would be to try and distract from this terrible story about Donald Trump. We'll go on to say the FBI did execute a search warrant at his New York residence. And this is the site somebody who shares duplex with Roger stone's. So this is according to CNN. And. This is sort of the big key point October seven hundred sixteen after WikiLeaks released its first set of pedestrians emails. The prosecutors who arrested stone today say that he received a text message from an associate of the high ranking of the high-ranking Trump campaign official that said quote well done. Signaling that the Trump campaign was looped in on stones quest for dirt on Democrats. The associate. And the high ranking campaign official are not named in the complaint. Does the indictment describes how stone told a reporter that what a Saint Saint, Chad and the unreleased? Emails was good for the Trump campaign. And that's the weird thing. You know, a lot of this stuff, of course. Is stuff that he said in public right on our show. Yeah. Many times. Yeah. So. You're looking through this indictment for stuff. Maybe we didn't know before certainly he's arguing that. Yeah. Well, he wanted this to happen. He wasn't in collusion or connection with with Wiki leaks people, but that's sort of the smoking gun here is that certainly the communications not only between stone and potentially WikiLeaks people, but between stone and the Trump campaign saying. In particular that this damaging stuff is gonna come out. And then saying when it's gonna come out and how it's going to come out. And then you get communication from the Trump people saying, well, well done forgetting this out that indicates that certainly Trump's people knew more than they were letting on so that's sort of the big news out of this collusion conspiracy. Whatever it may be and this is not mind you with Russia. Right. This is with the Wiki leaks head. But then, you know, there are people who go on to suggest that certainly somehow WikiLeaks is has some sort of connection with Russia. There's nothing about that in this indictment. But I believe that is some of the suggestion. I wanted to play Sarah Sanders. I'm not sure if we have that basically she she went on to CNN to respond to this. And let's hear from her. First reaction is real simple. This has nothing to do with the president and certainly nothing to do with the White House. This is something that has to do solely with that individual. And not something that affects us here in this building nothing to do with the president on this show a couple of months ago, Corey Lewandowski who was one time campaign manager to then candidate Donald Trump used to tell me it would make him crazy when then candidate Trump would talk to Roger stone on the phone, and it would happen a lot. So there is a connection between Roger stone, and the now president of the United States, you would concede that look Roger stone's is somebody who's been a consultant for where dozens of Republican presidents and candidates and members of congress conversations between those individuals have nothing. To do with the fact of what these charges are about. And that's about whether or not he made false statements. We'll let the courts make that decision. I think are bigger question is if these if this is the standard will the same standards apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Komi, Clapper, will we see the same people who we know of also made false statements will that same standard apply. That's a question that wanted to see what happens on that front. Did the president direct someone to contact Roger stone about stolen emails, John? I'm not an attorney. I haven't read through that. Even if I had I'm not going to be able to provide you some type of insider legal analysis what I can tell you is that the specific charges that have been brought against Mr. stone. Don't have anything to do with the president. If you want to get into. In this case, it's not the weeds. We only know if it had something to do with the president when we know whether it was in fact, then candidate Donald Trump who directed a senior Trump campaign official to contact Rogers. Don't do you know whether that individual was the president, I know that the charges are about whether or not he gave false statements, and that's on that individual that has nothing to do with the president those are the charges that they have brought against this individual when you wanna get into specific questions you'll have to talk to the president's outside counsel. So. Basically, you know, what else would they say really here, certainly? I was listening and you're gonna while Shattuck actually is the one who gets most upset by this probably. But I'm listening to Kunar as I'm driving in just to sorta hear what the what the line is here. What's what's the argument? What is the pushback, and certainly first of all he's arguing that CNN was that Muller called CNN and told them to be there, which I have issues with because Muller's just been so incommunicado basically from the beginning. And they actually had many interviews by the way with the with the reporter who's on the ground in Florida this morning at Roger stone's house. And what he said was that there was some activity with the grand jury in the courts that basically did not go unnoticed by the team and CNN that reports on Russia and reports on this Kalou. Asian reports on sort this ongoing investigation. And so they couldn't they saw that. And they were very interested and they figured. That this would. This would basically. Be something that they need to keep an eye on. So at any rate. I just thought that was that was sort of interesting note, and then he goes on and on about how dare you're definitely is no relation between what's happening with Roger stone and Donald Trump. I mean, I think when somebody says that the answer here is that indeed in the indictment. It says that a campaign official spoke with stone about this now, I guess again, you could argue it didn't say that Trump spoke with stone about this. But I'm sorry. Trump is responsible for what his campaign does hires these people, and he does indeed need to be responsible for what they do. It gets to a point where you go. So far. With this wasn't Trump. Who did it? I that it almost seems silly. It does strike me that Nixon didn't know that those fellows had been directed to go and break into Watergate, you know, he had no idea about that. But guess what it was still, you know, held responsible in the end. Of course, it was because he ended up whatever it is obstructing Justice Justice you, but. And certainly that seems like it could happen again. Here we always know that the Colorado crime. I mean, that's something that's always been explained, especially since Watergate and the other big takeaway from Watergate among many was what did the president known? When did he know it so win exactly did President Trump or candidate Trump know, what was going on? When did he know it we had a good relationship with Roger stone? I mean, they've had falling falling outs. At some point. In fact, when he decided to run in June of twenty fifteen Roger stone was going to be involved and quickly. He wasn't because he just you know, he knows that Donald Trump is a very difficult person to manage. How many times is he said that on the air with us that you know, no one's gonna tell Donald Trump went to say think so he kind of took a back seat. And I know his relationship with Corey Lewandowski was awful. I mean, it was just. Each other. So that wasn't gonna work out. And I think also that you you see this maybe over the top raid this morning. Yes. Which again sounds like something you see more from a mafioso or a John Dillinger pick anybody that killed a lot of people is that Roger stone throughout this entire process. He's still been ready willing and able to go on radio with US TV and talk about this really turns off a prosecutor. They would prefer the people aren't more in your face. Like Roger stone's been throughout this. If you're involved in this. I mean, the warriors will oftentimes tell you, whatever you do don't say anything just get out of the way Manafort did that right with Manafort was being. Being under investigation. He just kind of stayed on the line. Yes. Roger stone was like almost like John Gotti. Like, you know, hey. I am. So that when they finally get the goods on you they little bit further because. Nice. Yes. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. I can see that. I can totally see that at any rate. We will sort of see how how this plays out throughout the day. If we could let's listen to FOX and friends reacting to this this morning. Boxers alert the last couple of minutes. We have just heard that Roger stone that man right there. Unofficial adviser to campaigner.

"witness tampering" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"Sanders on the White House lawn. I'd like to mention Kevin cirilli. There of Bloomberg news with an important question. Taking all this in. Here's someone who at the university of Virginia. Virginia took press conference advocate that would be Margaret Brennan and she joins us. Now. She's tips to a career all three hours of conversation in the face the nation. This Sunday on CBS you could occur secured at Bloomberg radio Sunday afternoon. It has proven hugely hugely popular for up before we get to the themes of the mon- miss Brennan. What happened to cordial in a press conference or Margaret Brennan would stand up and say Margaret Brennan CBS? There was a thoughtful question. What happened? The Trump administration happened President Trump often when he hold press conferences, you know, just picks folks, they're not limited. And you know, it'll usually in the Obama administration, it'd be like, okay. Two people three people and it president like being able to call him who he wants to call on when he wants to call on a non answer questions when he doesn't want to answer them. This is what often happens when he's speaking on the White House on on the way to Marine One. But certainly there was a Sarah Sanders that spokesperson for I think reporters could do better. Tell us about how CBS reports Mr. stone this morning how old shape your coverage Sunday morning on face the nation. Well, we are hitting reboot and looking at our lineup one person who is on this program. And I think we'll have an important voice in. This is Senator Joe Manchin of west Virginia's because he says on the Senate intelligence committee, which has been looking into the Russia probe and these questions in particular about who recently has lied to congress as Roger stone's accused doing who he is also being charged today with know testimony and witness tampering, but we'll talk to Senator Manchin about that as well as the government shutdown if there's any path forward, our benchmark is so low right now, Tom for any kind of progress that we're happy that they're actually even voting on bills that are set for earlier at this point, so Margaret as we got thirty five of this shutdown, but I guess the glass half full approach would be at least it appears that the two sides appear to be talking a little bit more proactively the last couple of days. What do you think is next? Do you think there's any time constraint? It doesn't appear to be since we've gone thirty five days. But what do you think our next steps that we can look forward to over the next couple of days? Well, there is no time constraint other than the political reality of the pain. People are feeling in home districts of some of these elected representatives and clearly yesterday. There was some frustration boiling over meaning among Senate Republican leaders about the the corner they've been painted into in terms of the president refusing to sign onto whatever they pass unless it includes the border wall. But the fact that there were any votes at all yesterday on even bills that failed shows that the wheels are at least getting unstuck, and there is some room being shown in terms of places. People can go to negotiate. I still am not able to say with any degree of confidence that they're actually talking to each other in an accomplishing anything. But they've been speaking past each other for so long because McConnell had decided not to put anything to vote that the president wouldn't sign onto this is really a standoff between the White House. And Democrats more so than a Republicans and Democrats because a lot of Republicans don't like the shutdown either. Absolutely. We had a very unique piece of news developed this week, which is the state of the union address got postponed. And that's the first time I can ever remember that happening appears at speaker Pelosi won this round. I guess my question is do you believe that the state of the union and the and the postponement of it might ratchet up pressure on the White House to maybe deal bit more than maybe otherwise? I mean, it really isn't significant enough that it should be leveraged. Right. This is a feature the president United States can command airtime and attention, no matter where he speaks and went, but because this seems to have devolved into an argument were really any light can't be overlooked it became significant. So I I wouldn't say it's enough of a pressure point to force negotiations. But it is something that clearly the president didn't wanna learn unacknowledged, Margaret a few more questions sporting. I believe in two thousand thirteen you're in Venezuela to military enlisted type shot in Venezuela. You've done a lot of foreign policy work for CBS and this nation. Every report this morning, including Ricardo Hausmann of Harvard is this is truly a fractured nation. Do you have any scope scale and understanding of how the? United States begins to rebuild this nation. It's a great question because the day after is something that no one has given a good answer in terms of what the planning is due. If if Madero does exit where did he go if long ago, actually, I is running the place and how come the military is actually under his command? Why does he have any control of financial fusion? So is this just diplomatic maneuver clearly one that's got some half and political pressure from Doro. But what what's the result here? Remember Venezuela's huge is not just for oil. The fact that the largest humanitarian crisis in Tennessee are bleeding three million people, but it's also become a terror haven. Hezbollah has a presence there. It's a narcotrafficking haven. This is going to be situation that surrounding countries in the United States will have to play some role in stabilizing if and when Madero exits and even now it's reach such a crisis point that they need outside help the US offering twenty million eight at this point Margaret Brennan, thank you so much with CBS. Her years of foreign policy coverage. Of course, listen to face the nation. You could do that Sunday on Bloomberg radio. Two pm Sunday morning on CBS nationwide on Bloomberg radio two PM in New York, Washington. And now Bloomberg one zero six one Boston newburyport face the nation. Always Sunday to Bloomberg radio. News in New York. Michael barr. Tom Paul, thank you very much Roger stone and associated with President Trump was arrested by the FBI. It is Fort Lauderdale home early this morning. According to special counsel, Robert Muller's office stone faces charges including witness, tampering obstruction and false statements. Stone was asked by Bloomberg's Kevin cirilli last month if he ever spoke to WikiLeaks. We only exchange I had with WikiLeaks was a direct message exchange which was reported to the house intelligence committee was turned over to them was promptly leaked was published by the Atlantic. But not after they edited it to try to give it a more negative. Connotation. Meanwhile, a person familiar with the matter says Steve Bannon Trump's campaign manager and former White House chief strategist is the high ranking campaign official referenced in the discussion of October emails and the twenty four page document global news twenty four hours a day on air and duck on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than a hundred twenty countries. I'm Michael Barr. This is Bloomberg com birth. Thank you so much. They build them strong in Maine. And if you're are strong in may, you become strong an asset management as well. That's what you do from lewiston. Maine, Kathy Fisher. I looked at the temperature here from Davos Thursday next scheduled is a high of ten below zero Kathy Fisher of alliance, bursting how did you survive? It Bates college. Well, you know, I've been in New York for very long time. I think that gives you the answer. Just extraordinaire, the temperatures up in Maine to all of you across America. We say good morning from Dallas. We've got much the same cold. It's it's helps at all. All that. But the cold has been brutal here. Our thoughts to all of you fighting the cold across North America. Kathy Fisher, they've been all sorts of conversations here in Davos in. The most joint conversation is on the future of active management. Of course, some of the centering around the passing of John Bogle, the death of John Bogel. But Cathy, I want you to give us an update on where active management of our listeners portfolio stand. Let's start with the year. Was it a good year for active management two thousand eight was actually not a good year? Which is surprising. We actually thought the tide was turning, but the volatility that kicked in and I ended in December the rather broad brushed and extreme reduction in values was very broad based on your for. It was hard for active matters show much value last year this year. It's actually a different story. It's only three weeks ago. Much too early to say anything, but there. We've talked a lot about the fact that the market is looking for direction on earnings, and they are indeed very idiosyncratic, and you therefore are seeing active management showing more value thus far this year again early. But I think you know, what I'm getting at. I mean, look at your hit makers look at the banks very disparate performance among individual companies within industries, and that's where active management tends to do. Well, I would also argue that the, you know, the we've had a bit of a cyclical rebound as foreign two thousand nineteen those stocks are the most trashed at the end of last year and holding onto companies that were really really cheap by the end of two thousand eighteen and buying more of them. You know, has proven to be a very wise move. You know, we're we're we're not out of the woods. There's obviously a lot of issues that are still very much on the table. So we're we're still recommend reminding everyone to expect a lot of volatility the market moved up very quickly. But this is not an anyway. Way off to the races. The big issues facing are still there. So can you talk about the volatility in the tremendous volatility on the downside in December of last year? Do you think the market overshot on the downside, given some of the price action? We've seen the first three weeks of this year. Yes. And I think that was evident in in how how much the valuation of the US market came down. I mean over the year. It's about a thirty percent decline in PE ratios that that was extreme argue maybe socks a little expensive. And then getting of the year, but even a few no earnings growth in two thousand nineteen which I don't think we'll be the case. But even if he was soon that the S and now trading, you know, fifteen high fifteen maybe sixteen times if you have no orange growth. Expectations have come down a lot. I think they're more realistic. Maybe maybe four or five percent growth this year and on that kind of basis, you know, the markets is fifteen so we're we're we picked up a little bit of movement. But the reaction of December gave opportunities to buy the stocks that have gotten way to cheat. So you mentioned valuation, and maybe the markets reasonably valued here, certainly not expensive. What are the sectors? I mean, presumably when you kind of started the year, you a lot of the sectors that maybe you thought were expensive the fourth quarter of last year. You said, gee, maybe they popped up on my screen. So what sectors? Have you been looking at here? Perhaps, you know, given the sell off. You know, we really think it's important to be highly diverse that all the time. But now more than ever and valuations do matter quality matters. This is not the time to be taking a lot of risk. A lot of fliers on companies that rather buying companies that have the ability to get through a slower growth environment because it is a slower growth environment. And I do think investors have realized that in spades. And her taking a much more pragmatic approach to the kind of companies are buying when you have seen a little bit of softness in in the high fliers, the fangs they've done sinus this year, but not with kind of a mental we've seen in the recent past. It's interesting if looking for growth when I hear people talk about looking for growth, one of the places that they've gone to time after time Arca time over the last seven eight nine years has been tech. We had some disappointing numbers out of Intel last night. What are you guys doing with tech? So we like different kinds of tech companies. I again, it goes back to work. What what they're doing and how they're doing. And what what we think about where their Martin's go over time consumer behaviors are changing. And so we know when you think about anything that's related to the consumer. That's a very different question than what's happening on the enterprise side. And so this is the companies, but again, it gets into the individual performance of the different companies. I mean, look at the chipmaker's even there there's differences based on their business niche and who their clients are and competitive edges. So it's it what's good for active managers. It is indeed more than credit card. It's been a long time. Do you capture idiosyncratic by diversifying companies diversifying sectors of equities or by diversifying into other classes, where's the greatest alpha pickup there? Well for for private clients as you were I focus it's all of the above..

"witness tampering" Discussed on The View

"He had them one show on CNN right now. And you know, that must drive, you know, when White House a little nutty. A little bit. But we're glad to have him back here on this show. We don't get enough. Please welcomes CNN's Chris. Oh. Oh. Would just having a conversation about Michael calling. You're also a lawyer based on what you've heard should they be looking at with witness tampering. Does it lives to the level of witness tampering? I think they have to and the reason to build on sonny's point is that witness tampering doesn't have to be successful to be wrong via tempt is enough. And if you look what the president has been saying you have to do an examination of the hardest part of the long correct me if I'm wrong, which is motivation. Why is the president's saying what he's saying about his father in law? Now can just be this is what this president chooses to do with his political power is that he likes to disparage those who he sees as opposition that could be it could be that. He believes that by saying this. He will quiet Michael Cohen. And right now if he was right? It was because it did do I believe Michael Cohen's through. His counsel his fears about his family, I do because in God willing. You guys don't have to feel this when you on the wrong side of the president in the perspective of those who support him. It is a frightening place. The most powerful man in the world he is without question. The most powerful, man. Should they supplied Michael Cohen? So looking at their statement. I don't think they're there right now they have said they don't wanna reward the tactic of the president. Okay. Well, then they have to figure out how to comfort Michael Cohen and make him say could they subpoena him? Yes. I think a lot of what we're dealing with in this dynamic with the probe is not about whether or not something is a crime. It's about what is wrong. It's not about whether or not the president to your earlier conversation has the right to do something. It's about whether or not what he's doing is. Right. That me Giuliani could possibly go to jail is. No now. Yes, Sunny's analysis is it possible. Yes. But I do not see that. I don't see shining of former US attorney for the southern district of New York. Right. It saying the things that he is saying to you. Yes. To me. No. And this is this is Don started calling me both sides. Here's here's why. Because I don't see prosecutions as the eventual outcome of the Muller probe. I could be wrong. I'm open to it happens on a daily basis. I see report coming out that is damning in terms of wrongdoing things that people knew wrong and did anyway things that the president knew about in wasn't honest about with the American people, which I believe should be the bar of accountable behavior from the highest elected official in the land, not criminality. So if he didn't commit a felony. It's okay, that's not our standard. But there is a specially on the left a bar of satisfaction that as well. The presidency must ended after this just a little bar. He must be impeached. He must be gone after this. I tell people to slow their role on that. But because the concern isn't legitimate. But the process is all votes Joyce happened. If they run all we have tremendous amount of circumstantial evidence. On witness tampering on collusion on on obstruction of Justice right to face. Yes. Why is he still there because this is a political process? We know that the guidance from the DOJ is you don't indict a sitting president has Muller asked for different guidance. We don't think so has Rosenstein ask for different guidance. We don't think so. All right. So that's a rule shot somebody Fifth Avenue like he said, he then go to Jim. I heard this. A lot of people's heads. Are exactly where yours is. So here's the answer. Would you be indicted? No, you would be impeached because that would be something. That's so heinous that even the Republicans who want to back the president right now would have to say avenue. Yeah. Would be would be I disagree. He would be..

"They're going to understand from from a live person. What? Actually happened at least as to him. Well, the story tonight is that Russia is running US foreign policy and sake shifts policy. The question is whether that is of a criminal nature or just a really odd thing that keeps happening or national security. I mean, I think now we've introduced not just crime. So we've introduced a potential threat to our national security from the FBI, I think that's a whole nother kettle of fish both of which man worked on Ken Starr investigation, both of which I think could give rise arguably to impeachment process and on your point with respect to witness tampering. Both with re in Watergate, and in whitewater witness tampering was one of the articles of impeachment is one of the distinguishing factors in my discussions with former Republicans and involved in the whitewater probe that distinguishes this probe from that. So I think that's gonna be quite interesting. A why this is going to be very verse or of minimizing Watergate, which I'm the last person to do. I think this is much more serious intentionally damaging to the country more serious why? Well, because not only does it Volve criminal conduct. But it expands the criminal conduct who our allies to our economy. These were not really concerns of anybody back in nineteen seventy three seventy four the economy of foreign relations. But they are now it's quite possible. We don't know that some of the stuff that Trump is doing with Syria is designed to improve his relations with his base with Russia and other things heroin on the other hand didn't history. Ultimately proved that Watergate was just a third rate burglary. No, no, no, no. I know. I'm kidding. Okay. I'm sorry. I sorry under David Okazaki. Thanks to both of your expertise. What you said there is pretty arresting. I hope we both come back on the beat.

How do you? How do you know? He proxy the customer to follow your paperwork. She doesn't have the results if she was. Okay. But let me ask you you're saying the doctor proxy your paperwork through another patient your paperwork, not his or her own. But your follow something. He had. No, I get it. He filed an affidavit talking about something that's gonna prove his case by customer that customer customer file it in court. Okay.

"Do you think it's more likely now that paul manafort will face pretrial detention i think it's very likely that manafort will face pretrial detention i've never seen a prosecutor who wasn't outraged judge who didn't share at least some of that outrage when a criminal defendant who's been told he can't commit any new federal crimes or any other crimes at all well on release when he goes out and tries to tamper with witnesses that calls the integrity of the criminal justice system into question our trials are predicated on the fact that witnesses will go in and testify truthfully and jury can reach a conclusion about what really happened in a situation where the government has charged criminal conduct so this sort of thing that manafort has done really strikes at the core of what the criminal justice system is supposed to keep from happening i think he goes to jail well joyce fans to touch we're trying to nick ackerman thanks to each of you up ahead giuliani turning his sights in personal tacked on stormy daniels saying she's not credible because of her job i'm sorry i don't respect a porn star the way i respect a career woman or women of substance or woman who has great respect for self as a woman and today democrats taking trump to court for profiting off the presidency we have the senator leading that very case on the tonight and trump standing by an embattled cabinet official who's become a poster boy of the swampy swamp ism and later art of the deal co author tony schwartz says trump is playing on emotion and you have to understand it to fight it i'm ari melber you're watching the beat on msnbc.

"I want to begin tonight with four facts that underpin the top story one donald trump is under investigation for obstruction of justice to several of trump's former aides have pled guilty or been charged with crimes related to obstruction like lying to the feds three the man who literally ran trump's campaign was accused this week of witness tampering one of the more serious ways to obstruct any pro for bob mueller is finding new leads in his probe by looking through witnesses phones and reading there once encrypted messages and then five one of the most powerful people in trump's orbit is sean hannity conservative activists and tv hosts who reportedly speaks to trump daily and one is is one of the only other clients has trump's embattled lawyer michael cohen take that all in right now those five facts because they make what we're about to show you especially legally significant i don't mean this as some sort of media commentary story i mean this as a story about what's coming out of the trump white house because that same influential man sean hannity is now literally telling potential witnesses and subjects in the mueller probe to destroy the evidence and hammer their phones into pieces they are demanding that witnesses turn in their phones follow hillary clinton's lead to lead all your emails and then acid wash the emails and hard drives on the new phones then take your phones and bash him with a hammer to little itty bitty pieces.
