"Going to lose them. What are you bloody Nostradamus? And secondly? Yeah, because it's fraudulent and we need to stop the fraud and that's By making sure the electoral college electors are not sent to D. C. I'm Sebastian. Gorka. This is American first. If you want more, my strategy I played the whole audio video from my speech to the Trump march of the top of the first hour will repost it right now on YouTube on Twitter and Facebook. I mapped it out for the president the way ahead. But now we have to talk about other breaking news. Let's talk to John Solomon Award winning investigative journalist creator of the new Just for the news dot com website, an author with Famous Bruner Off, Fall out NUCLEAR BRIBES, A Russian spies and the Washington lies that enriched the Clinton and Biden dynasties. John Welcome back to America first. Great to be with you on this Monday morning, everybody afternoon Monday afternoon. I know it was like she was still mourning. I need the extra hours. Yeah, well, you you work very hard, very hard. And somebody who doesn't but who gets paid far too much for doing nothing is Brian Stelter. I was. Yeah, I was at the trump much. I spoke of the Trump Much and Just have to play to you. How he described he. Look, I don't if you were up on the board, but sailor Media Woz amongst others, and this is Brian Stelter Media analysis off the current media environment, pay cuts. But there is an entire constellation of websites and talk shows that are in denial. Just like Trump. They are supplying disinformation about the election results, and wherever there's a huge supply, there is a high demand. These crowds in Washington over the weekend proved the point. These crowds are being deceived about the election, but there's demand for it. There's demand for a fictional universe. No, I don't want to call it an alternative reality anymore because it is not reality. There's nothing real about this. In this fictional parallel universe. The election was rigged. It was stolen out from under Trump and Trump was the rightful winner. This is the new Birtherism. Alternate realities. Universes of fabrication misinformation being described to us by somebody from CNN. Your comments John Solomon. They have some expertise on the subject, as much of the Russian reporting fell into that category, but I think they're misapplying it here. Listen, there is irrefutable evidence that hundreds of thousands of ballots and the most important states, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Were counted without required observers. In fact, observers were ejected or fooled into leaving. When s so that they couldn't observe the ballot county. Now, why is that important? That has been a standard that the United States government has used To call other elections across the world fraudulent in 2000 and four when the Ukraine election ejected observers, the State Department said that is proof of fraud. That is proof of Unfair UN toward election. So if it was good enough to use the cast doubt on the Ukraine, the election we should at least look at what happened to those ballots and go through the legal process. These are this is not Fiction. It is irrefutable proof that people were ejected and couldn't watch vote counting. And there's an election worker by the name of Jesse Jacob in Detroit's a longtime civil servant. Who says I witnessed fraudulent ballots being counted? I was instructed to backdate thousands of ballots the day after the election. Who's challenging her account is Brian Stelter car liar. I think CNN should check into the facts before they makes its terrible sweeping pronouncements as Brian did this weekend, but they haven't done that for four years and I don't think they're just suddenly going to start. In November of 2020. Unfortunately, what y let me just positive? It's not a theoretical, but but it zoo do with the quality of the media. We're talking John Solomon found of Justin, used dot com Follow him and Jay Solomon reports right now Author of Fall Out Drunk. Why would a political party Why would any media platform not want answers to whether or not an election Woz managed in a Clearly transparent and legal fashion. Listen, It's at the heart of our democracy, transparency and the idea that in multiple cities, the exact same tactic was practiced on election night. The injection of observers that Unusual vote counting occurring after hours way ought to get to the bottom of it doesn't mean that the election results of fraudulent yet we haven't gotten that far to say that, but they ought to let the court process play out, and they ought to have a little bit more curiosity. Twice in the last year we've seen election thrown out for the very behavior at the Trump campaign is now a legend in North Carolina and in New Jersey. We've had elections thrown out Boston voting fraud has become significant enough that entire elections have been invalidated. And we should at least be open to the possibility of journalist to follow the facts. Run the trail. Make sure what's there? Not there before we make such Bold proclamations like like Brian Stelter did the only fantasy world this heat. He hasn't done the work to make an assessment on this, And yet he's made a bold proclamation. What is? Let me ask you that the really big picture theoretical piece here you now run your own news agency. You've been doing this for decades when it comes to any election, presidential or otherwise. Is it? Is it complicated to describe what the role of the media is? Should they be certifying winners and losers? All? Listen, They've always done that not certifying. They've always made projections of who they think won the race and ended when there is I used to do this. When I worked at The Associated Press, you do it based on the signs. Projecting a winner and having someone, uh, certified in the wind are two very different things and in 2020 and 2000 that one time when there was before this year that there was a legitimate concern about the state of Florida and an entire election, and the entire nation hung in the balance rather than rush a winner out. We decided not to call Florida We went to the hanging, Chad. He went to 37 days to give the benefit of the doubt Al Gore into George W. Bush. I think the media should have done that. We had just the news are doing that We're gonna let this play out a little bit longer, and one of the things we did in 2020 it just the news. Is exactly what the meat media back in an earlier when they were more neutral. Arbiters get into thousands were going back, and we're comparing votes of people who say are recorded as voting and calling him and say. Did you really vote Because you know all these absentee ballots were out there Did you really wrote and we're beginning to find someone. Usual things were beginning to find people that appeared to have voted when they were dead. We're beginning to find people who said Didn't request about and I got one on then I showed up voting, but I didn't go. And so we're beginning to do that. Now. Isn't that a wide enough scale? Tonto overturn election? Not yet. But curious journalists neutral journalist should be going through that process and checking out these claims, not just arbitrarily dismissing them because of that, it's it's their political will. I think that's what's going on CNN. They've been the anti Trump Network for four years. And they're just cheering that on for a little bit longer. And intriguingly CNN allegedly is for sale. And somebody said that the president should buy it and rename it Conservative news network. Now there's an idea. I'm would be a funny mom. Wouldn't that be ironic? Wouldn't be delicious. Somebody was in the studio last week. Jim Hansen has just tweeted this out. We need a special prosecutor for Hashtag Biden corruption Now either borrow points, one a sample, move him out and put someone in who will Talk to us, John about the latest story. Just the news has about Hunter. Biden's complicated business life. Oh, yes, yes!.

Internet Archive Book Scanning with Davide Semenzin
"Welcome to the show. Thank you. You're on the Internet Archive. What does the Internet archive do. That's a great question. Deterrent archive is the world's largest digital library, and whereas most people may know of us because of the way back machine, which is this really rather needs tool that allows you to go back in time and kind of see what web pages used to look like. We really are fully-fledged online is the library and that we have different types of media types. We hold texts and television and audio images, movies, all sorts of things and yeah, the introduce archive you can think of as this huge repository of Internet. When did you start working there? I started here in two thousand sixteen. So. We've been yeah for years. And what do you work on their today? Well, I work on the books. That's mostly what I would I have always been on. I'm spending the bits inside of this. So usually when we think about our media types, we think of in terms of bits and bits out how we procured them, and how we distribute them. My specialty is working on the book bits in saw in order to build up our collection of almost four million books we have Candan, and my job is to sort of keep running the whole pipeline that allows us to do that. So over the last four years, we've my team, I built it. And now we achieved over our objective of being able to digitize million books per year which we're doing, and it's pretty interesting challenge so far. So you work on book digitisation and I WanNa talk about that. But first, let's talk more about the Internet archive at a high level. He told me about what is being stored across the Internet archive and who pays for it, and how do people use it just share a little bit more about the Internet Archive. Yeah. That's a great question. So I'm going to start from a WHO pays for it because I think that's the result of depth and that question Internet Archive. If you think about it as a repository, it's just essentially a bunch of hard drives spinning connected to the Internet. Somebody's GONNA. Pay For both danger and connection and hard drives and the electricity and all of that largely you can think. Of of our revenues in treated front weight. So we're a nonprofit and we don't really run for profit businesses. We don't benefit in any way of the data that comes on on our servers. We do benefit from your donations and so by and large, we are a community funded effort, and so if you type slash donate, we actually just added integration with apple pay so people will not help us. That'd be great. So we receive a fair amount of money that we we need to run from patrons, Cintas like people who supported us. On the side, we do have some some small some businesses. So we have our archive it. Our arm where essentially contract alto were machine capabilities and we we are maintaining a very large amount of curated website collections. In fact, we I, think we have about seven hundred can ization that are that are partnering with us to create these collections and if you tens of billions euros that have been collected for for our partners, and so they pay us to do the service and we do it for them and same is true for books. digitisation. So as we have built up to large infrastructure that is required to do this kind of tasks, we have to an extent, the ability to contract out to third parties, and so we do get some some revenue streams that way not anything particularly substantial in terms of like our ability to to sustain ourselves. But you know every little bit helps and then obviously throughout the twenty twenty, five years of our existence, our founder Brewster Kahle has. Chipped in here in Deir a significant amount, I guess over the years to to keep us running. So we have donations we have a little bit of our non for profit business, and then we have brewster who is there so This is in terms of who pays for it, but the question would be I guess who benefits from it. Right and that's a very, very large segment of the Internet. We're not the biggest website on the Internet. They think we are. We're ranking about two hundred and something the Alexa rank. But since we've been around for a long time, the users that that lovers the Lavas like I, every day I am in contact with people who tell me their story about how they use the Internet archive for their specific need always always amazed by the depth and breadth of. The of the use cases user spring to us. So it it spans from teachers to researchers, journalists to lawyers Theresa very, very large diversity also in terms of the country's from the backgrounds from from when users from. So it's kind of hard to to to paint them with the same brush but in general I want to say they are people who have some degree of laugh for knowledge and you may know our our motto, our slogan our mission is Universal Access to all knowledge, and so I guess people who have an interest in that eventually land on on our website. Okay. Well, let's talk about book digitisation as a particular project that is under the auspices of the Internet Archive. What is book digitisation? So, books digitisation is the effort of transforming physical books into digital artifacts. So that's the definition can take it forms. You know if you are if you have a scanner in your home and your scanning document in a way, that's obviously that's digitisation if you take pictures of the book. That's a book book digitization. So the definition that needs to be applied to the use case at hand, there have been other efforts at large scale of books. This decision famously Google had one but dare. Different From Ours, for instance, where they did distractive digitisation so they would pull the spines from books and and turn dot process into a sort of sensitive. Kind of problem we do non destructive book dissertation and I think non-destructive bit. It's just a little bit as important in the Beth nation as the fact that we're these books digitizing them so that we can keep them so that we don't destroy them. So the process by which we turn books into bits and then returned books to wherever they came from or wherever they need to go. So Why would I want to digitize a book and how many books get digitized each day just tell me more about the volume that's going through this. I'm very happy to answer this. So the reason why you would want to digitize book there's multiple. So think about for instance, the first thing that comes to mind is obviously preservation if famous birtherism is that accessibility drives preservation so if you don't have something. It's almost like it doesn't exist especially in this age of information, we do have immediate access to all of all of these resources and so if we if you actually think about this, if you have to go to the library to to procure a certain book chances are you won't, and if the if the record of that book actually doesn't exist, you may never get to it and were. This is a problem is for all of this huge amount of books that were printed in the twentieth century for which there is really no digital equivalent books nowadays that are published like currently obviously, they have a book artifacts. That stuff is not to get lost. and. That stuff is searchable and it's reachable but we have. Tens of millions of books that are unaccounted for and as time progresses getting lost, and if we if somebody doesn't save them, they will be lost forever and that's that would be a pity and huge loss of human effort and so but first of all, I think important to scope the problem I think the D estimates that there is about one hundred, million books out there. Give or take unique unique books and. Scanning them we're, probably not gonNA scan all all one hundred of them first of all because. You would be able to source and that's my fire the hardest thing. So we tried to scope down the problem and trying to figure out. Okay. How can we do this in a way that is useful for people so first of all, I think we had to come up with a list of books that we wanted to get into we knew. Books that are important and we need to can these first so that? We'll. We'll get. We'll get into to people and this will be evidently immediately useful and a good place for us to start was freaky Pedia, which is collected. A long list of SPN's the where commonly cited in Wikipedia compiled the list came out to a few hundred, thousand books, and so whenever we we come upon one of those sourcing process, we make sure that we get. We can talk about the senator sourcing, Proxima, little bit later but in general, we do have a little bit of a concept of priority or at least we did this was the first million million and a half. And then the problem was that we started running out of books you would be surprised how hard it is to source books by by the half a million you know and if you if you do it by your smaller scale, it doesn't really make sense to to us in terms of maintaining our our economic scale. So the whole system works only if you scan at huge volume and time and but huge volume, we're talking about a million bucks a year, which is about three thousand books day some things some days we'll do thirty, five somedays. We'll do twenty five on a seven days week averages houses about. Between Twenty to twenty, twenty, five, thousand books. Every book is about three hundred pages so that. COMES OUT PRETTY NEAT about million million pages per day five to seven million pages per week and you know that's not a huge amount of data in total. I wouldn't be surprised I. think like last time I checked it was about between ten and fifteen terabytes of data week. So we're not talking about huge amounts but it's not a small amount eater and we can talk about the challenges of Piping data over the Internet in a reliable way later but it's a significant volume and this operation is running you know twenty, four seven. And so. In terms of why even do this? So I called for the first part, which is obviously people want to get to the books. There is a second benefit in having digitize books, and that it's a wholly new format, it allows you to interact with the body of knowledge in a way that you never have before if you have. A physical book artifact, it has some very desirable properties, for instance, very low random access time and doesn't depend on the battery. It's very, very hard to censor, and these are not properties of digital artifact but this is the active factor searchable, and in fact that we have like it's pretty amazing next search engine where you can instantly search all forty million text items that we have. So that's a million books plus all of the patents papers I'll all sorts of stuff and you can search that instantly that was just not possible with the previous format. So I don't think this is dwell ISM in any way I think books. Digital format and books their physical format will continue to coexist. They just help each other out, and in fact, if we are able to digitize them in the first place is because of the properties of. Physical artifacts that they don't just disappear. If we find one, we can scan it. Well. Those are great summary of what you do and I can tell how excited you are about it. Let's talk a little bit more about the high level, and then we'll get into the engineering. So can you describe the steps of digitisation in more detail if I have a book how am I digitized it? Yeah. So, the books that position pipeline is predecing people and it's like in a way if you're an engineer I think is kind of what to expect so I D-. A physical sorting. Step where your book is ingested into the system. It's given ID and it's it's placed in a container. So we know that the the exists. So to speak the second step is it gets to a scanner. The scanner picks it up within the in the machine loads up the data necessary whereby The books method data we can. We're going to have to talk about that. I, guess it's pretty interesting facet of it all and then proceeded to actually scan it, which means they turned the pages page by page and they take pictures of the pages, and once this process done they click upload and the book vanishes into the ether and so at this point, we have a fork the digital artifact goes into our servers divisible artifacts either goes back to the person who gave it to us in the first place or it goes into our warehouse. and. This largely depends on what kind of book it is. So obviously, the recent larger conversation to be had about copyright and like what books is it is it okay to scan and under what guys it is but suppose we are just you know scanning Yearbook Jeff and you you just wrote the book and you want to have it digitized to risk no claim on it just wanted back at the end. So after we're done scanning it, we're handing it back to you with slip inside which will tell you the Internet archive identifier and the. Or is just the name of the item on the Internet Archive. Everything is an item and you're just going go to type slash details, slash your identifier and a few hours. Later, you will find her book. Wile you wait the second part of the pipeline is GONNA kick off. So That's the digital server side stuff and it's divided essentially three phases. We have a first phase which it's a preprocessing stage where we get a look this images that came raw from the camera we'll look at them crop firm we discovered them and we just make sure that everything is is ready to go. There was a second phase of Manual Review Sa- currently all books that we upload have to be checked by a human for correctness, and so this is a step were. Reviewer just goes through the images in shorts that everything is fine and then when this is done, they kick off the third stage of the pipeline, which is A. Is the real processing stage where we take all of these files and compiled them in such a way that they are suitable for consumption by our web front end what we call book reader and from their wheel derive. We call them to rotate formats such as PDF, Abi e POB and either a text file. So CR it all happens at at this stage. This is kind of like the bird I view of the of the books that decision pipeline.
Trump stokes 'birther' conspiracy theory about Kamala Harris
"CBS News UPDATE. President Trump has floated a false Birther claim that Kamala Harris isn't qualified to run for the vice presidency, even though she was born in Oakland, California and meets all constitutional requirements.

No absolutely not. You can't not be racist for six nine years and run for president beer racist. What I'll say is that when a lot of the Democrats call the president racist.

"birtherism" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
"What happened my point is winners as we through on what Trump says, we don't see what the Democrats say we say, well, what did he actually mean by that? Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. And I think that's what I was getting at, you know, don't it can be just to to seize on Trump's comments like that and say where could he possibly get that from who could possibly take anything from right? He's saying it's just a little silly to me. But I think that takes away from again, this fact that Trump consistently needs to it's not just hyperbole. It is visceral reaction. It is very strong, very terse language that is it's meant to evoke emotive Mexicans are rapists that is meant to put a picture in your head. So that when you see Brown people, you're afraid of that person because you think he's a rapist. Rather than saying plenty of white people, rapists to we're going to have that conversation to say, I mean, it's always about making the other side of the enemy, and all and this is the way he is not only trying to keep his base that red meat and keep them angry and fearful and the fear that we have for each other is exactly what the Russians exploited in the two thousand sixteen election, and we'll do so again in twenty twenty and he knows it. And he also knows that by keeping that one third and check that's how he keeps Republicans in congress and check because they're afraid of that one third of the find us described President Trump is a say anything president. He's also a dog that doesn't know any new tricks man, if I were running a campaign against him. I would be delighted because we know what he's going to do this thing with the abortion debate. There's a legitimate debate happening over what happens to babies that survive abortions, that's sort of what he's getting it. And if you're a. Away. That's what happens you're not going to have that debate right here. But from the this is the fire that he's stoking. We know that he does this. And so I think you're right to go to the actual policy debate rather than seize on Trump's comments because that's what Republicans and conservatives are going to be talking about on the ground. He's doing the same things with these conspiracies and the two thousand sixteen election. He went head in birtherism now, it's happening again with spy gate, and he will ride that train as far as you can go. Yeah. The state CU which I don't even think the conservative media is fully on board with besides like, maybe Sean Hannity, which is, you know, his phone the friend in need, but he's going to ride that and we'll see if we get outrage over or we just mock it for what it is.

"Now comes the real new beginning. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo earlier today in Cairo part of his ongoing nine nation Middle East tour, and while he never actually said Barack Obama's name. He didn't need to from birtherism to the continued trolling of the former president by the per current president on Twitter diminishing, the Obama name and presidency has been a foundational goal of this president and his team pump Eos attack on Obama's legacy comes almost ten years after the former president's own address to the Muslim world from the very same city. We've asked Jeremy bash to stick around and come back and take a question or two on this. Jeremy does does the audience in the room in the wider Muslim world? Look at that and say while you have to marvel at America, they they pull off a change in their foreign policy without bloodshed or do. They look at that. And hear that and say what's going on with our friend. America in my experience. Brian folks in the Middle East, actually, folks on actions less so on words and speeches, and if you look at the Trump administration's actions with this hasty abrupt and unilateral withdrawal from Syria without giving it heads up to any of our allies, we've essentially emboldened the Assad regime embolden, Iran emboldened, Russia, abandoned, the Kurds caused deep consternation inside Israel's security establishment with one fell swoop. Basically undermined American foreign policy in the region. I think that's what people are going to focus on Brian. But then we undermine that as you well know Bolton goes over to Israel. We see him standing next to Netanyahu and sounding like every American has sounded kind of traditional American foreign policy for the last several decades completely reversing the pullout by tweet that the president did by Fiat on Twitter. That's right. So there is a lot of cleanup on. L A that's part and parcel of these efforts to go around the region. Say don't worry we're still going to be here. But again, I think people will focus on our actions. Not. So on our words, and again with respect to Russia because Russia is a big winner with our withdrawal from Syria. You just have to look at our actions. The Trump administration has resisted or relaxed sanctions on Russia. The Trump administration has undermined NATO. The Trump administration has failed to hold Russia accountable. And they've taken the we've taken the word of the former KGB spy Putin and his intelligence services over our our own CIA. And so again, people just need to look at the actions. Not the words of the rhetoric. Our own veteran of the CIA and the Pentagon, Jeremy bash always a pleasure. Thank you for staying up late with us tonight. We appreciate it and coming up, Donald Trump is facing multiple challenges on multiple fronts. Nothing less than an excess stencil challenge to his presidency. We'll talk about what to watch for next when we come back. As we inch

"And it's you know, it it would have been surprising, and maybe have felt particularly artificial if it had felt warm and fuzzy I I think what's more important is the fact that he was there, and that they were all there, and what it meant for us to see all of them in that row to honor the life of another president. There are there were important rituals in the sort of national literature of this country in one of them is that when presidents die the country mourns and his predecessors mourn, and the fact that that President Trump honored that protocol, and and was there and that the Bush family, I think went out of their way to make it clear to him that it would not be a horribly uncomfortable. Experience for him was important and important piece of the continuity that we saw to even you know, given the comments that Michelle Obama has recently re written about inter book about how you know, she can never forgive the president of President Trump for you know, possibly endangering the lives of of of her her daughters by some of the the the birtherism comments he made. I mean t- to see her shaking President Trump's hand, Hillary Clinton just sort of nodded without really looking at Mr. Trump nodded at at at at the first lady, and I think president, oh, President Clinton may have shaken Malani Trump's hand. But no real acknowledgement of President Trump. I, you know, I I think that for most of us mortals, the office of the president is what you are respecting when you shake the hand of the president, even if you don't agree with that person. And you didn't vote for him. I can't put myself in hurry Clinton's place. I I don't know what kind. Of emotional damage would have done for her to shake Trump's hand by we'll say this Trump didn't extend his hand to Bill Clinton, and he didn't extend his hand to Hillary Clinton. So it seems to me that President Trump didn't wanna shake their hands. Either initially. I mean this. There was a moment in in the service that really struck me when when the president's pastor was speaking about the the final hours and the final day and talked about Jim Baker who was a longtime friend, obviously of the president's beyond. Oh, also being in in the president's White House and talked about this moment in which Baker was massaging the the president's feed. I think it was in the final day of his life and Baker. I think we have video of it. Baker broke down crying. I think let's just play that. Can see Baker Bruce? It's it's not a moment. I mean, it just something. I'd never seen before certainly Jim Baker. And it was just such an intimate moment for the for. The pastor be talking about. It was and it was a reminder of apart from everything else. Yes. This is a this is a a major public figure that was being mourned. But the the affection that people felt for him. I think was palpable certainly in the in the cathedral in the city, and and in so much of the conversation that we've been having since he died, these these friendships were long and deep and profound and some of the, you know, the toughest most hard-boiled political figures who had extraordinarily roles in our modern history. We're really today was really about humanity and about their humanity. The same way it was it was about family. It's very common at a presidential funeral for other presidents to deliver eulogies. It's not common for that. President also be a son eulogizing father. So as much as we were seeing all of you know, the pomp and the ceremony today, we were seeing something that was profoundly human. And I think Jim baker's reaction was real sign of at. Gets really wasn't ANSI gives. Thank you to them to tell you as well. We'll check in with Chris what he was working on for Cuomo prime-time, Chris how're you doing my friends? So we're going to pick up on. What was the message of the day?.

"You just heard me talking about Roger stone in tying it into this. Michael Cohen story. Well, they're just happens to be a great piece in the Washington Post called Trump's night. Owl calls to Roger stone in two thousand sixteen draw scrutiny in Muller probe one of the authors of that is joining me on the phone right now Manuel, ROY Francia, man. Well, thanks for coming on the show today. Hey, great to be with you. It is good to talk to you again. Thanks for your time. I'm Roger stone is such a wild figuring all of this. I keep telling everybody to go watch on Netflix. Get me. Rodgers Tom O'Neil understanding why he's such a. Truly bizarre figure in all of this. But what are these late night calls? Tell me about this, man. Well. Well, this is something we learned just recently because Jerome Corsi this other controversial figures, the father of birtherism, you know, the theory that Barack Obama was born outside the United States released a plea deal that had been offered to him by Muller, and in that it really drew a direct line in document between Roger stone and Donald Trump during the campaign, and so that prompted me to call Roger and throw a little bit about his communications. And we learned that they were talking on the phone, but not just talking on the phone. He was calling Donald Trump was calling. Roger stone's from blocked line or using other people's phone all of which is going to make it complicated for the special counsel to figure out exactly what these guys were talking about. I'm so curious when you say that man, well that he was using other people's phones. Don't we kind of all suspect that the NSA doesn't? Just collect meta data. Is there any way Robert Mueller is able to reach out to those people to get more information about these phone calls? Well, we do know that Muller has asked for so logs and phone records from Donald Trump. We have that in our story. And I think that's a clear indication as he is looking at who Donald Trump was talking to during the twenty sixteen campaign, and why does that bring us to Roger stone? It brings us there because on a very specific day. Roger stone got a heads up from Jerome Corsi who I just mentioned that WikiLeaks might be coming with some damaging emails the very next day. He Donald Trump calls Roger stone. And they have a conversation chronology is everything in these sorts of cases and jumped out at me when we put two and two together. Okay. So hang on a saying I want to make. Sure that we're all clear on what on what you're telling us in in this story in the Washington Post Manuel ROY Francia is joining me on the phone right now from from the Washington Post, so Roger stone WikiLeaks, President Trump. They could tell them tell me a little bit about why all of this matters again because some people be like, so what WikiLeaks did this that doesn't have any thing to do with President Trump? However. Yes. It is a quite tangled tale essentially, this is what happened in the summer of twenty sixteen. Roger stone tweeted that there was going to be damaging material coming out about John Podesta the campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton. He also said in a speech that he was in direct contact with Julian Assange, she was the founder of WikiLeaks. Well, not long after that month and a half later, Julian Assange is group WikiLeaks released a large cache of hacked emails from that included some emails from John Podesta. That's really important because US intelligence believes that those emails were by Russian intelligence and the Muller probe is all about figuring out whether Russian interfered with the twenty six. Eighteen election in the behalf of Donald Trump at Ganz, Hillary Clinton, and Roger stone is a I think a key piece in all of this, man. Well, that that that I was just explaining in the previous segment is Roger stone is nearly a lifelong friend confidant and supporter of Donald Trump's. So the fact that they were talking during the campaign for those who might just say so what he was talking to this guy. There is a long and storied connection here. Yes. Absolutely. And in fact, we have another piece up on our website right now, which I would recommend to you. And to your listeners that traces the history of Roger stone all the way back to when he was a lobbyist in the early nineteen eighties in Washington DC, and guess who of his very our clients was was the Donald Trump, Donald Trump, exactly. And you know, this is Donald Trump and Roger shown to the most colorful figures in American political and business seen right? So of course, there are things that we learned about the business that they did with each other there that you just could not make up including this one which jumped out at me Donald Trump bought then the largest yacht in the world. It was owned by the arms dealer, odd, non Shelby. And guess what? What big? Yes. Yes. To mauka show his dad there you go. And no, I believe not father bet a lot better relatives uncle or something. Yes. I mean. But yeah, he was one of the biggest. Okay. Sorry, right until I think is what it is. Yeah. Famous figure of that time, but the boat was so big so big that he couldn't get into the harbor in New Jersey. And so who did he turn to Donald Trump who determined to for help with that his lobbyists? Real Roger stone and some fingers were snapped. Some phone calls are made and suddenly they were able to get permits to dredge the harbour which sometimes could take years, and they got it done very quickly. That was Washington of the early nineteen eighties. And here you have these two figures who are now just enmeshed in the case that has all riveted and wondering whether our elections, what compromise now one of the things I find very interesting is I heard Jeffrey Toobin talked about this earlier today is that people. I I'm trying to remember who it was Michael Cohen who lie directly him. It seems to me that people like you Manuel ROY Francia from the Washington Post. Joining me on the phone right now, you've had conversations with people like Roger stone. I have a feeling we're gonna end up finding out that things he has said to you for interviews are turning out not to be true as well. Have you found anything like that yet? Absolutely. I did a profile of Roger in early twenty seventeen and for that profile. We did and video interview here at the Washington Post, and I asked him a question how he ever had any dealings with any Russians, and he very quickly said that he never never never had any dealings with any Russians never been to Russia. Never even had spoken with someone who is demonstrably Russian. Well, almost a year later, we did another piece about how Roger stone had had this weird meeting with this mysterious Russian in Miami who was claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton and wanted to sell it for two million dollars to Donald Trump. So right there we had to point out the fact that Roger had told us one thing about meeting with Russians back in two thousand seventeen. And now he was telling us something complete. Different. And the reason all of this matters. And by the way, that is a great piece. I pulled it up. Once you told me, it's called the swamp builders on the Washington Post right now. Excellent work Manuel, ROY Francia. Thank you for pointing it out to me. One of the key things in all of this is while people have the right to deny things when you're under criminal prosecutions criminal investigation by people like Robert Muller and his team when you get caught your lies ended up doing something that's called impeach the witness you become an unreliable witness now in court, and suddenly you're denials have less meaning should something. Go to court. That's just the sort of thing that prosecutors would point out to a jury you said this one day to the Washington Post or the New York Times or the CBS news. And then you had to backtrack on that. Why should we think that you were telling the truth right now? Now in fairness to Roger stone. He will say that there are some things that he just has simply forgotten. Ronald Reagan defense. And and Roger stone is a unique character in this sort of a scenario because while many people who are under federal investigation will sort of clam up, they'll get into a bunker and not talk. Roger stone's talks all day every day on the air to newspapers to magazines. He has said so many words and all of those words are being tracked by the prosecutors. I really feel for the people in the special counsel's office who have to listen every single time that Roger stone goes on the air because he's on the air all the time. Wow. It's true. He is on the air all the time. He loves the loves it. He loves the attention. And he loves it. You're writing articles about him. And how all this plays out. Thank you so much for the work that you're doing for the Washington Post and taking the time to come on the show with me today Manuel, ROY Francia. Thank you. Great to be with you always. Appreciate it. Really? I'm not. Kidding? You this by the way, his article the swamp builders that I pulled up on the Washington Post. He just told us about this is essentially a readable version of get me Rogerstown of one chapter of that movie. So you might want to check it out on the Washington Post is called the swamp builders by Manuel Royd, France. If you don't have time to watch get me Roger stone on net flicks in the next few days. And I'm not kidding you. You got to watch it. You will be your mind will be blown by what this guy does. And he's known for kind of playing the edges of politics, right? Is to- is on the line of what is legal, and what is not in everything he does. And he just seems to. He's those guys who plays that right to the edge, and it's well documented here. All right, by the way, we have another crazy news story that is breaking out of Chicago that has some ties to President Trump as well. A tax firm and eight an assemblyman got rated this morning. In chicago. We'll discuss that next and take your calls. Four one five eight hundred eighty.

Will it be a Rolls Royce of joy by Jim Messina, campaign manager for President Obama's twenty twelve reelection for Maryland, congressman, John Edwards, democratic strategist, Julian f seen, welcome to all of you, Jim. I start with you President Obama face-down attacks from Trump, including, of course birtherism, but he did it from inside the White House. What do you see as key to confronting this today? It's really important. Have President Obama on this, Tom, our best messenger in the Obama world. You know, he's into it when he takes off the jacket and rolls up the sleeves, and you could see him in full throat in Nevada. And I think that's absolutely crucial. He'll be in Wisconsin on Friday and you know, we need a national spokesperson here in the final few days making the case and can. To fire up our voters. Well, we know here two weeks out is this is all about turnout and we need our voters turned out and that's Barack Obama's the best I've ever seen that when you look at that, let's take that point to Donna Edwards and President Obama getting into the facts, but also getting into what he views as the hypocrisy of the Republicans juicing the deficit now not caring about anymore. After a lot of crocodile tears when he was in office, take a look. When I was president and I was trying to fund early childhood education or trying to fund infrastructure. They would say, no, no, no. We can't do that. That's too high. Suddenly when it comes to give it. A trillion and a half dollars for folks who are already sitting pretty, don't need it weren't even asking for suddenly, then that's no problem. Does that breakthrough Donna? Well, I think it does, and I think it puts into context what we're fighting about it. I mean, you know, Trump maybe trying to give a tax break to middle income people when congress is in session. But let's look at what he's really doing. Definitely rolling back the rules around pre existing conditions. Americans care about that definitely making certain that people who have who've had healthcare wouldn't be able to have health care in the future. And I think the most important argument that can be made can be made by President Obama right now, and let's not forget. We've got other top surrogates going around the country to and Democrats need this because we've got to make sure that are enthusiastic that we had through the through the. Primary season continues onto election day Julia. Well, I think there's a bigger point here, and I think it's, you know, the old Mark Twain quote about lies can get halfway around the world before the truth is even gotten. It's bootstrapped on. And I think what President Trump is doing a little bit of a sucker punch right now. No, it doesn't have much of a record to run on the White House has been an utter chaos. He's been under investigation, and he wants to reframe this campaign aback along the identity politics debate of two thousand sixteen. That's why you hear him talking about immigration and terrorists than cheap shots bullying on LGBT. And I think the cheap shot is aimed that the media, what Trump understands and kind of in very savvy way is that these issues energize the right, they anger the left, and that's kind of a.

He is sending some of his operatives out to member. They have the Iowa straw poll to help some other democratic candidates get elected there, but the tea leaf readers think that he is stoking speculation fray twenty twenty run getting the groundwork there in Iowa is probably gonna make a speech there. So that he can launch his campaign for president is is Spartacus moment. This guy's a joke. As far as I'm concerned. Well, you have to wonder why what makes him think that he could be president? He couldn't even be an effective mayor of Newark city is in shambles he left it in ruins. And we want him to run the country. Well, we we saw just last week on the Senate committee hearing listening to a supreme court nominee Brad Kavanagh, and he came out there grandstanding saying I'm going to release these emails I'm going to release these documents that the Republicans won't release. And if I do it I will accept the penalty that you can expel me from the Senate, and then it turns out. They released all the documents. He was going to release the night before total political stunt app. Lately. This guy he was thrown his Cory Booker. He definitely is a hissy fit thrower. I can tell you that.

"We've seen this with the John Birch society going back years ago and the president himself has believed in conspiracies before his political career was very much launched when how he came onto that birtherism with President Obama. There's not really an expectation inside of this White House at the president's going to somehow speak out on cue in on people inside of the president's inner circle. They see the q. signs as much as anybody in the press pen scenes, those q. signs, but they. I believe this is the Republican base. This is the Trump base. They have a deep suspicion of the deep state how this is the Republican base. Are you concerned? Of course, look, I've lived through this. Group of people who believe that the moon landing was filmed in a studio somewhere, right? And and we all we all remember also how everybody we are government kept place in Nevada where all the liens were incarcerated and so, but you know, a lot of people now actually believe that that these actual people in government, this is the is very different. Now, it's people in garment undermining the country and and by not denying this high level administration, it gives credibility that further feats of the idea that that government is not to be trusted last word there, whether it is election security or putting down conspiracies and social media influence, it's about leadership. We saw Senator McCain do this before right when he was campaigning, you know, turn crowns and that shut that down. Same with that press conference on Thursday, the leader of the. Country is the one responsible for integrating that we had the top guy inside there. He's not there anymore. It's important point. What's thanks very much. We're gonna let you go.

Welcome back around here. It's never too early to start talking about the next presidential election. And if you're curious which Democrats are thinking of running in two thousand twenty, you might get a clue from looking at the lineup of speakers at this weekend's net roots nation conference in New Orleans. It's billed as the largest annual meet up of progressives in the country. And it's seeing this year is a bit of an audition of sorts for Democrats who are looking to shore up support from the party's liberal base. These past eighteen months have demonstrated that the people in power are no match for the power of the people. It's time for us to let people know that what we're seeing in this country doesn't reflect our spirit. What we're seeing in this country doesn't protect reflect our potential. I'm not waiting number to give Donald Trump today every single day. Okay. And I would say to these politicians, if you don't think impeachment is a good idea if it's too divisive than what's your plan. A free and open internet is truly one of societies. Great equalizers, don't waste a minute of your time feeling daunted. The Donald Trump has a base of diehard supporters. So did Richard Nixon before he resigned. We've got to embrace the unshakable truth that an attack on one of us is. An attack on all of us. You ban.
