"Have the headline Jim Komi signed one of those FIS awards agreed that the information formation was verified and in that FIS war and said they had no derogatory information about Christopher Steele Their Source Ladies and gentlemen that is clearly not true listen to Salman less than usually they try to hide the fact that they have in fact impaneled a grand jury there were two paths to spy on the trump administration. We know James Comey was literally warned on multiple occasions. You broke both or at least one of those stories and that was the case of Kathleen Catholic at the State Department about ten ten days before Komi signed the first five award in October two thousand sixteen before the election he was also warm. We now know by Bruce or as everybody else there are potentially other cases where he was warned about the dossier about not being verified about it being political but that's only one path now in the mullahs report correct me. If I'm wrong the professor Joseph Miss Food he was in fact they thought he was a Russian agent. We find these Western intelligence guy now also then you have steph on helper he's spying on Carter Page Sam Clovis and Popadopoulos <hes> who set that up who do we know who was involved in that and was intelligence farmed out to other countries allied countries because it would have been otherwise illegal to do it in this country and they were circumventing American Oughta do so well I can report <hes> absolutely <hes> that the Durham investigators have now obtained an audiotape deposition of Joseph suit where he describes his work why he targeted Popadopoulos who directed Nadu that what directions he was given and why he set that entire process introducing George Popadopoulos to Russia in motion in March two thousand sixteen which is really the flashpoint the starting point of this whole Russia collusion narrative <hes> I can also confirmed that the Senate Judiciary Committee has also obtained the same deposition so you now have the Senator Tapes Prosecutor Wow Ladies and gentlemen there is a lot there a lot to shovel into. I on the Komi stuff. Here's here's the pro for us. Yes Komi apparently we was. He's not going to be prosecuted for the leaking classified information on the pro side. Apparently Komi has been absolutely nailed to the wall about signing off ladies and gentlemen on an application. He says says was verified claiming they had no derogatory information about their source to tie up what Solomon just said they're Solomon gave you chew who bullet-point takeaways you should never forget about combs credibility so again Joe Komi says all this information is good. We don't have any derogatory the information now now now true Solomon says you have two pieces of information you have the Kathleen Cadillac from the State Department interview with Christopher Steele. We covered in detail yesterday today. We're still tells Catholic things that are not true or not. True Cadillac has a five page file. She gets shrimp steel full of information. That's false. This scheme was run out of a Russian consulate Miami. There is no Russian constant. Miami Michael Cohen went to Prague. He's never been to Prague that. Russians were giving information to steal. I thought this was about Russian collusion but he points. We covered that yesterday. Detail Tale Cadillac from the State Department has information before Komi signs the warrant that the Infos false and Komi signed in any way but secondly what the other takeaway from Solomon's appearance apparently the bruce or three. Oh twos are going to be classified and what are the three. Oh choose. What does that mean Bruce or was the number four official official in the FBI? Excuse me in the Department of Justice he was coordinating with the F._B._i.. Is a backchannel information. He was getting from steal. His wife worked worked for the company that hired steel right a three zero. Two is a summary of an F. B.. I. Interview they write down their notes when the interview and they enter into a form called the three Oh to the quality sources have told me and others and Solomon I assume as well that those three o two's are let's just Not Good for Komi why because now in addition to the Cadillac negative derogatory information there's also apparently information about Christopher Steele IOS political motives..

Yes, we Jim Komi did tell us, he briefed us d just studied in brief you why is he trying to cause Adam Schiff wants to provide cover for Komi Komi, who's a discredited completely discredited anti-trump hack now taking pictures of himself in the forest? Look at the trees, look at the sky, look at the ocean. I don't know what's going on with Jim combing. I seriously, there's someone needs to stage intervention, but Adam Schiff understand what he's doing. People hate the idea that the government keeps secrets in order to attack political opponents. They hate it. That's what Komi did. He did not brief congress about the existence of the Trump investigation, because it was a farce and he had a hide it for eight months, hoping some negative information about Trump turned up so we could justify it when it didn't. He was forced eight months later to brief congress forest he had to because he couldn't hide it any longer. Shift knows that looks really bad. So he just blatantly lies to congresswoman Stefanik no-no. He briefed us and she seems Joji face. She seemed so genuinely astonished psych even for spray, right? Yeah. For sleazy. Adam shifts. He's looking around like you can't be serious. It's worth it. Just a record. Yeah. It is. It is worth. It is just to play the video of her face. She seems genuinely astonished that even the sleaziest of sleaze balls. Adam Schiff would lie about something so easily. Refutable. Yeah. That's who they are folks. It's always been who they are. Okay. I'm moving on just a quick story. I picked up in the daily signal being the show notes today. It's rather good. One courage, you to check it out defeats the entire Bernie Sanders, socialist narrative that we should be moving towards more single payer healthcare direction. Because in fact, single payer healthcare is how Scandinavians and the Europeans do it. And it's just so successful. Well, ladies and gentlemen, that is not. In fact, what's happening is the daily signal reports today, actually Scandinavian countries in Nordic countries are moving towards private healthcare by Kevin fam- in his daily signal. Read the article, it's short. But here's an interesting little piece from this daily signal about how Scandinavian countries that private free market health care is growing not shrinking. I don't understand how is that if we're trying to emulate, this model right about how wonderful government control? The healthcare is, then why is it that countries over there Nordic countries are expanding? Their free market healthcare presence. The answer is. Because they're government run systems are failing from the peace between two thousand six in two thousand sixteen the portion of the population covered by private insurance increased by four percent, Sweden, seven percent, Norway, and twenty two percent Denmark than what I thought these were examples of free market. Excuse me, socialists, healthcare, utopia, if that's the case, ladies and gentlemen. Why are these countries that are already paying ridiculous tax burdens up, which a fifty percent of their income, the citizens of, of Denmark Norway Sweden at pay? Absurd tax burdens. Why are they paying for a product twice? If the government run healthcare is so great stew on that for a minute..

"They cross every t and everything they did from five on down. It was all dirty. It was dirty because they knew what they were doing. They had the intention of preventing Trump from being elected. But it was all legal why because we allow our law enforcement to do that because we give prosecutors and the FBI we give the feds a heck of a lot of power, and we essentially allow them to abuse it because we trust them, which is why I don't like all this talk about the finest men and women maybe there were a few bad apples. But you know, you have a lot of people in Republican circles, and I feel like a lot of hosts of. Are shows that we're trying to expose all the dirt that went on and people go out of the way to say, I'm not talking about the honest FBI. We know most of them are good people. But the idea of saying, oh, it's just a few bad actors. Maybe we do give these guys too much power. Maybe that's why Jim Komi is such a class a weirdo because for so long. He's allowed to do what he wants based on his sterling reputation, that's all in his mind, and all in our mind because most people aren't that sterling when you give them power absolute power corrupts.

"From the F B I, inter smart testimonies already indicated that she didn't know Christopher steals real name, ladies and gentlemen, for those who you in law enforcement when you use a confidential informant or an undercover they frequently have an identity in reporting. Why would that be jail if you're an undercover Joe Armacost police department, do I want your name out in in public documents trying to keep it undercover? Baby. Thank you because Joe's the undercover, and they don't want people looking them up on Facebook. That guy's a cop informants get numbers. Lisa page in a brilliant point by my guy. Didn't know Christopher Steele is identity because she only had likely his number is confidential informant number like a license plate. Some of the people in the FBI not handling Christopher Steele. Ladies and gentlemen, likely didn't know his identifiers. Therefore when the information came in from the Central Intelligence Agency from John Brennan, if they had information about collusion that I'm telling you came from Christopher Steele. There are people in the FBI who probably didn't realize that the information they got from Christopher Steele was the same information. They got from Brennan. All right. All right. Now, this these. Yeah. Rob the list techs make sense. There you go. Hey, have we checked are confidential informant list against the CIA as? No. We haven't guys we may have a problem. This information we got from steal whatever CI number nine six two seven two that we just found out as from steel because I just found out his identity is talking. We thought this information confirmed the CIA sources information it didn't know idiots. It's the same guy. He see I number six thousand four hundred twenty two with the. Who was that? It's Christopher Steele. It's the same guy. You didn't confirm anything. You just repeated the same information twice. That's what they're hiding. That's why they're saying. Oh, no, no to start with any of that started with Downer. Secondly, John Solomon's piece yesterday and other bombshell at the hill. This is important the FBI steel story falls apart false Intel media context, we're flag before the FIS is Solomon goes on and a piece even worse in October ten days before the FBI Jim Komi signs off on the first Fiso even worse, Joe they find out from the piece that Christopher Steele has been talking to this woman cavalier Liz cavalier at the State Department cavalier. She doesn't takes notes on this. We just found the notes yesterday is covering John. Solomon species talking to steal ten days before the Pfizer the same CI, the CIA and the FBI are using. Although I don't think they know it. They think it's separate sources confirming. This is crazy. At the end of the paragraph. I have up on the screen Cavaliers taking notes on what steals telling her Christopher Steele. Whose putting his information everywhere tells us woman at the State Department that the Russians are running this big collusion scheme with Trump. Through the Russian consulate in Miami. She writes kava lack in her notes. It is important to note. There is no Russian consulate Miami. Oh. Oh. A State Department bureaucrat in the snap of a Thon finger from Infinity wars figures out that there's no Russian consulate in Miami. And the FBI using CI number six seven two point five can't figure out it's the same CI the as Houston and can't figure out their CI. Christopher Steele is lying to running this operation through the Russian consulate Miami that doesn't exist. What is Jim Komi do though with steals information? He literally stamps verified on his information and walks into the Pfizer court. Now, you see what Jim commes hiding holy cow. Joe to dude is running me FBI Komi, and he can't even figure out. There's no consulate Miami. The State Department lady figured it out ten days before the Fiso..

But they should be those those were the Republicans who used to lecture me slash us about morality about reverence where the constitution about reverence for the office of the presidency about the rule of law about the constitution all those things, and they're they're on the air excusing all of these things. Yeah.

They're talking to the boss because they know the boss is watching and if they're talking to him and not to the rest of us to Tiffany's. Point. We are watching the crumbling of our democracy. And there are no more breaks in place. Let me ask you this AJ because there there was this piece by Jim Komi on the talked about the way that Tom Tom eats, your soul, and it talks about why he tried to come up with a reason why these people wanted to debase themselves for him. Do you have a theory? There were a lot of people want to be close to power. There are a lot of people who say if Trump gives us tax cuts deregulation and judges we should support him, and it's worth accepting all of this other stuff. But a lot of it has to do with the radicalization of the Republican party that's been going on for twenty years and Trump has carried it to an extreme that we could easily anticipated should've anticipated..

"It's been a long news breaking week next week. We'll get more of the same. We expect the mullahs report Monday or Tuesday, the media will try to find the one sentence. The one phrase the one z he didn't want general Flynn, charged by the way, the FBI didn't even think he was lying he hoped that. He wouldn't get in trouble in didn't stop any investigation. You know, all these people on the left that they care about obstruction did just liars. I keep using the same example if they cared about obstruction of Justice, Hillary Clinton, all of those people would look at what she did. With those subpoenaed emails, and they like me and others would say that is obstruction. There was great intent there to demolish and eliminate any mem-. Mury of the emails and now, we know thanks to Tom fitting and the engine digital watch. Yeah. They took a sampling of only forty of her emails, and what do we know for them top secret classified information on the emails? It's unbelievable. But what the Democrats what the the media mob is not telling you that. This is their last gasp, whatever whatever lines. They may pull out of the mullahs report that they are going to fixate and focus on is going to be meaningless in the end because of everything that they have ignored for two and a half years is now going to be made public in all the things that we learn this week about the general counsel of the FBI under Jim Komi that being James Baker. And James Baker number one lawyer at the FBI thought that Hillary in fact should be indited. It's a clear. Vile. If you have four emails that are marked classified top secret on a secret server that is a felony violation of the espionage act now considering we watched a lot of people get, you know, perp walked and we've watched a lot of pre dawn raids, and you know, early morning or twenty-seven people whatever showing up CNN cameras there to capture it all what was that. In a Roger stone case. We seen a lot of process crimes that they've gone after. Now granted I'm glad on the one hand. I am glad that one thing about the Mola report. But we knew it was happening ahead of time. Anyone that listened to Devin newness, I've gone back and read his column thousand fourteen think it was the Washington Times of the Washington Examiner one of the other and in that he warned us he told us about the hostile regime of Putin and their history of doing the same thing. Trying to create chaos. In the electoral process of other countries. This is what they do any warn the then Obama administration. Nobody seems to really care that it was the Obama administration, and they did nothing to fix it. Nothing to prepare for it. Absolutely nothing and it happened on their watch. So is the media. You know, you can tell you exactly what they're going to do next week. They're going to look at this line. He is possible that he really did fire Komi thinks he got fired now. Now, we got fired because of obstruction. Everyone forgets Qomi said under oath that England fired for any reason. Or no reason at all when I was appointed FBI director in two thousand thirteen I understood that I serve at the pleasure of the president. Even though I was appointed to a ten year term, which congress created in order to underscore the importance of the FBI being outside of politics and independent. I understood that I could be fired by a president for any reason. Or for no reason at all. Yeah. For any reason, no reason at all. So I guess does that obstruction. Did let's say all right. So Donald Trump calls Vollers witch-hunt witch-hunt. Okay. Well, they actually concluded that there was no evidence of collusion. None whatsoever. I mean, this is the funny thing about this. You know, everybody talks about the the the attorney general. William barr. The reason that William bar gets to decide whether he will release any or all of the Muller report is because that's what the Democrats wanted. How many people have seventeen current Democrats included clothing Jerrold Nadler himself that never wanted the star report released on Clinton impeachment. They wanted to keep it hidden proves again that they are. But political it's like, we'll bludgeon just this cavenaugh for insane allegations by Michael ebanon his client about how every other weekend almost that. These kids were spiking the Punch Bowl and getting these girls in toxic aided and lining up in the hall and gang raping these girls again almost every other weekend. No due process. No presumption of innocence, which by the way, Michael Evans now saying he deserves from self, but he didn't deserve for. You know, Joe either reserve that. Or fight for that for Justice Cavanaugh and the media put him on a whopping two hundred and fifty four times in the year leading up to his legal troubles. I'm sure they'll have Mont again. Why did they want him on so much because he's a rage? Hate Trump, you know, media mob fan, and that's basically it. So what is happening though, they get they get their last gasp. What can they talk about? Obstruction Muller was never fired Comey was fired. But he didn't need a reason to fire Komi. We now know from the testimony of James Baker this week. They were thinking about wearing a wire the twenty fifth amendment all these upper echelon people that we now know abused their power and painted Donald Trump and had an insurance policy from the get-go and Casey one we know a lot of things happen now after they have their Monday Tuesday, and they'll try to. A stretch into Wednesday Thursday Friday, this is it for the the collusion delusion. It's over. They have nothing else that they that is coming. Nobody's gonna pay attention to what Jerrold Nadler says because they got rid of the independent counsel law. The Democrats did and then they made the special counsel law. So that the attorney general would have the leeway to decide what does or does not become public and to watch, you know, what's happening with the media mob freaking out that the attorney general has stated what is an irrefutable fact that the Trump campaign was fired on by our own federal government. They're freaking out these people better buckle up because the bar investigation that he started this week that he has told us he is going through a full investigation into the abuse of power the use of our intelligence weapon. Against our own people, you know, and FIS abuse, which is going to be one of the biggest corruption scandals ever as we've been telling you know, they they can't handle this. We have the criminal referrals that are beginning the bar investigation. We have I g Horowitz's report on Fiso. We have the over report on leaking. We have more closed door testimony, though, it's all coming including people like McCabe and probably people like Komi. Then of course, my last interview with the president he said he would release the FIS applications themselves. The bulk of evidence was of course, the dirty Russian dossier paid for by Hillary. And then it will be clear and obvious to everybody that a fraud was committed on the FIS court that our constitutional rights were just shredded in the process, then the gang of eight materials where we know that the. The FBI themselves admit that they handled all of this in Iran way and the three oh twos in the Ukrainian issued cetera et cetera. I don't care if it's the surveillance and denial of constitutional rights to Carter page or unmasking at a at an increase of three hundred and fifty percent Americans. Well, a Maske means they surveilled other countries, which we want our intelligence community to do to keep us safe this opposed to minimize if they find an American is on the line talking to a of a foreigner. Usually reports are that whoever the target of the warrant is the you listen to them you surveilled them. And if you write up a report, you just say American, you do not amass that American even if you know who it is. That's what the law requires and then to a mask at a rate of three hundred and fifty percent in that election year. Well, that means they're abusing the powerful tools of intelligence for political. Purposes, if if that's the case when not going to have a country. Make no mistake about it. The Trump campaign was spied on in numerous ways by the Obama administration and now will be investigated by the attorney general bar any and all wrongdoing by the FBI and DOJ as they went along their witch hunt against Donald Trump. And of course, swamp monsters are scattering like rats. You know, I guess led by Jim Komi lives in another universe. He doesn't even well surveillance, really like spying. He's like is that really don't know what he's talking about. When he talks about spying on the campaign. And so I.

"Dossier or any other intelligence related to Russia hacking, the twenty sixteen election with journalists Clapper, subsequently acknowledged discussing the dossier with CNN journalist, Jake tapper and admitted that he might have spoken with other journalists about the same topic. Clapper's discussion with Jake tapper took place in early January twenty seventeen the same time. I see leaders briefed Obama. And president-elect on the steel information. He's lying. Remember that duct tape. Remember? Duck tales. Ooh, remember that. He used to watch out when I was head. I love duck tales. It was what Huey Louis and doofus or whatever. The name wasn't Scrooge mcduck, and he'd swimming all the gold coins. And Scrooge mcduck if they found that harp that time, and whenever you were lying said, you are lying. I would say, well, Jim Blackburn, you are lying. Daddy o. Jim Clapper asks Jim Komi, this is slick to brief Trump on components of the dossier. Why Joe because the dossier false Clapper has to know this by now so does Komi, but they need components of the dossier to leak into the media. Why Joe because they needed a special counsel appointed remember that sequence of events. Clapper's. Referring as they need the dossier in the media to generate a public outcry to have Trump investigated, but they can't get the dossier into the media. Why Joe because the media knows it's a hoax shoe, and they're suspicious of it. So clever clever move by Clapper evil, but clever. He tells Jim Komi go briefed Trump about the dossier said Senate in his own words. You just saw them cut. Clapper told them to do it. The P E the president-elect brief him about it. Clapper, then leaks to Jake tapper at CNN components to that briefing. Then the story becomes what show? Don't worry. We don't have to print the dossier. We could just print. The president was briefed about this really bad information. And bingo what happens right around the same time. Buzzfeed says, well, let's just put the information out there. Boom. The dossier gets out to the public. And what happens, of course. An outcry happens people start screaming Trump colluded with the Russians and months later. Rafter? Trump is inaugurated you have the appointment in the sequence of events. Of Bob Muller to continue to harass Trump for six hundred and seventy five days. Ladies and gentlemen. I hope you're getting it Brennan's in trouble because he lied about. When he saw the dossier. That's clear as day. Now. He lied about knowing who authored the dossier. Clapper's in trouble because he said, he never said anything to the media about the dossier of the.

He told Jim Komi to go briefed Trump on the dossier that became a main component of a CNN story run right after that about President Trump's briefing about the dossier. Slime balls everywhere. Boy.

"Dear friends. Do you know twenty fifth amendment is for? It's for if a president is shot, for example. And on the go surgeries on the general anaesthetic dozen properly recover. It's for a president. Who is incapacitated. On the twenty fifth amendment is very specific a majority of his cabinet members with the essence of the vice president, which is a non negotiable requirement must choose to initiate, the preceding was to have the vice president take over the role of the presidency. Despite this being very very clear, we now have the personal admission on national platforms from Andrew McCabe, the deputy director former acting director of the FBI after James Comey was fired by the president, which is his rights to do. So other presidents have done it. Bill clinton. Did it as well fired? The FBI director they inherited he initiated a counterintelligence investigation against the new president. And then with attorney general deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, disgust, the use of the twenty fifth amendment to remove president, Donald J Trump that is sedition that is political sabotage of the constitution. It is what none other than Victor Davis. Davis Hanson and also Alan Dershowitz have called a coup. D'etat? Let's listen to not only what he admitted with regards to the twenty amendment Andrew McCabe. Let's talk about what he unveiled in his interview on the today show with savannah Guthrie about the role of the coward caucus of the GOP. Cut five. I know you and other members of your team briefed the so-called gang of eight. These are the leaders of congress in the days after combing was fired about the Russian investigation. So it would have been the majority leader of the Senate Mitch McConnell speaker of the house Paul Ryan and democratic counterparts. Did you tell them that you had opened a counter intelligence investigation into President Trump? The purpose of the briefing was to let our congressional leadership know exactly what we've been doing opening a case of this nature. Not something that an FBI director, not something that. Then acting FBI director do by yourself, right? This is a recommendation came to me for my team. I reviewed it with our lawyers I discussed it at length. And I told congress what we had done. Anyone object? That's important part here, savannah. No, one objective, not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds. And not based on facts just two points before we go to your calls. Yes. We've managed to contact our callers two points. Nobody objected not. Let's be very carefully. Andy MacKay was fine. Because he lied frequently to federal investigators. That's why he was fired he could be lying again. But apparently, he told the GOP and the democrat leadership that he had initiated a counterintelligence investigation against the president number one. What did they do about it? Did they protect the president who had been duly elected? Did they inform him? Did they say in our congressional function? We are executing oversight over the intelligence community. Given what the president has said in the last two years. It's clear they did none of the above. They were colluding. Let's talk about real collusion. They were colluding with bureaucrats to undermine their own president. Secondly, what was the predicate for that counterintelligence investigation? Only one thing. Donald Trump fired. Jim Komi the caves, boss. So what he could find everybody in the FBI because according to the US constitution, the chief law enforcement officer in the United States is the current incumbent of the White House. It is absolutely in his right with 'cause all without to fire all of them to find any member of his cabinet, should he? So choose to do because Jim Comey was fired Andy McCabe took revenge and then plotted with another swamped weather rod Rosenstein to try and use the twenty fifth amendment. This is as Sarah Carter said in our last hour a silent coup, and we will not give up until all the facts on on. Let's go straight to your calls. Let's go to line to less in Sacramento. Welcome to America. First, Dr Gorka, you're a great American. No, it was refreshing to hear an immigrant. Our first lady are beautiful first lady read the Lord's prayer. Rally. And I just wanted to say I I recently over this weekend. I met a man from Vietnam who came over nineteen seventy five and I met a beautiful from South Africa, escaped violence and and whatnot. And just you know came here to America got an opportunity to to speak to both of these immigrants. Both of these couple and the gentleman who became citizens. We're proud to show me their pictures out their American citizenship their love for their country a love for America. They both. The gentlemen, and and the couple loved Donald Trump, but they loved America and they loved this country. And it was just, you know, this is what President Trump needs to do. He needs to showcase integration. People who have assimilated to our way of life who are love of our country feel the love of the founding of this of this country. And in showcase them. Your first lady is a great showcase today. And and show people who love America and love to be America and say, welcome illustrates or welcome here. But you must simulate otherwise, it's an invasion. Yeah. Otherwise, what is the nation? There is if you don't want to be part of that nation. Then why are you here as an immigrant? I came here legally because I wanted to be an American because I find with the values of the founding, and what this nation represents. So you're absolutely right. I think. Using successful immigrants like his own wife as a case study of how it should be done is a wonderful idea. Thank you for calling America. First. Let's go to New Jersey line one. Robert in New Jersey. Welcome to America. I thank you for taking my call. You are great American onto my call was actually. Application for my daughter to go to college.

And now try to we, you know, we we align my life angle Soulard, and it just it just I've got to the point where this is where I think obviously the only answer is to go out and vote, and I stressed that the people, but like going back to the numbers again twenty people enter this country killed three thousand if you extrapolate that out twenty thousand people you're looking at three million Americans, potentially maybe affected. But what what did you say about your daughter's application? I'm just trying to fill out. You know, I'm going through the process right in college. And. There's other options to fill out as far as I know that would potentially get hurt more money for so.

Exactly, my my father who is in a as as white as they get when this craziness started taking over England, and you had the boxes of ethnic groups. He'd always take other and he'd say white Mongolian because the Hungarians came from somewhere in Mongolia or eastern Asia and just to stick it to the politically correct crazies. God bless you.

Graham says Barr committed to letting Mueller probe continue
"Just as deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein is preparing to exit to talk through the changes at Justice and what they mean for the Russia investigation. NPR's Terry Johnson's here in the studio with us. I carry hey are what kind of reception did. William forget from senators today, mostly a warm one Bill Barr met with Republican lawmakers, including Lindsey Graham, the incoming chairman of the judiciary committee, Lindsay Graham told reporters he asked bar a lot of questions about the Russia investigation in the man leading it special counsel, Robert Muller bar and Muller are apparently good friends. Miller attended the weddings of bars. Children and Lindsey Graham says bar told him Muller is not on a witch hunt bar said he would make sure Muller can finish the job. And according to Graham bar also said he would quote, lean on the side of transparency. In terms of releasing any public report that Muller prepares all this new information, maybe coming out now to make bars nomination more attractive to democrat. Okay. So it's clear what the central tension point in this confirmation fight will be given that the Justice department is changing leaders in the middle of this contentious investigation, while his confirmation really be that easy. You know, there are a few complicating factors here. Whether or not these guys socialize with each other bar has been critical of some parts of this Russia probe. Democrats have been asking Bill barter recuse himself from overseeing it that's because he wrote a memo last year to the Justice department arguing that obstruction of Justice should be out of bounds. When it comes to Trump's firing a former FBI director, Jim Komi in that memo. Bill Barham, essentially said the firing was within the president's power not a crime, but bar has not agreed to recuse himself. In fact, it's hard to imagine why he would do that. And take this job. Remember, President Trump had a vendetta against the guy who used to be attorney general Jeff Sessions for recusing himself and leaving the. Russia probe in the hands of the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and there is news about rod Rosenstein future. Today, Tulsa latest there. NPR's confirmed Rosenstein plans to leave the Justice department sometime after Bill bar is confirmed by that time Rosenstein will open on the job nearly two years. That's a long tenure for a deputy AG. It's probably the hardest job in the department in normal times. These are not normal times. I'm told Rosen signs leaving on his own terms. He's not being post, even though the writing's kind of been on the wall since the New York Times reported last year at one point he had discussed wiring, President Trump Rosenstein sides he was being sarcastic. They never went ahead with that idea as long as you're in the studio, I want to ask you about a development in the case against President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, this looks like some self inflicted damage

"Bob Muller's old chief of staff, ladies and gentlemen. This is why Muller's the perfect guy for the cleanup operation his old chief of staff. John Carlin was the head of the department of Justice national security division. That was what he was one of the last guys. He is a big time higher up while all this is going on in the DOJ John carlin's one of the last guys to sign off that the information was verified, according to the woods procedure in the DOJ. So think about this Jim Komi desperate to turn this into a political. It's about Fox News. Now, Fox News. You Fox News people all you crazy people out there to tack in the FBI Komi signs off. But the information is verified on the FBI side. There's a parallel path the DOJ has to sign off on the dossier to one of the last people to sign off on the DOJ side is who Bob ballers old chief of staff, John Carlin, who's got liability in this to where's Muller talking about him. Where's the you here in his name outside of this show? Where we brought it up. Frequently the answer is no you're not they all had a prescribed procedure. They ignored in order to politically go after Donald Trump. Don't miss this point. Now, the judge also asked me if I thought there was going to be some political penny penalty, she doesn't believe so or legal penalty. I hope so I can't predict the future. I very little faith in what the government's doing anymore. But I hope that Bill by accidentally call him. Bob, Barr less. I Bill I do. It was bell. Sorry sticking of that libertarian guy. Bill bar the new AG. I can only hope that Bill bar the new AG and John Huber are looking into this. I can't promise you anything. Ladies and gentlemen. I can I'm not gonna lie to you. But I love the constitutional Republican. It's worth fighting for what do you want me to do? Give up off forget enough. That's going to happen. Let's leave it. No one not giving up. I'll talk about it every day until something happens. That's what we do here. Okay. So point number one at this commes lashing out because there's a paper trail he is in that paper trail having verified dossier. That is now exposed as a hoax and people who are intimately connected to Muller were involve in verifying this hoax too. As an excuse to spy at a presidential candidate point, number two. The dossiers a hoax, and it had a really really bad day yesterday. What happened with we should call it the dossier? You know, why the P dossier? What happened with the dossier yesterday? Why was as if the dossier had any credibility before if you've been if you read my book spy gate plea, if you haven't by the way, read it, please read it, I be put so much work into it? And it is such an intense body of information this show will be so much more nutritious. Let's say to you once you have the background on it. It's like vitamins and minerals for the soul. Go check out my books by gate, please. Yesterday. Three things happen of that that just completely collapsed any potential hope that this dossier that attack. Donald Trump was going to be going to be shown to be true. It is a complete hoax number one a central component of the dossier, which we have debunked repeatedly. So I want to spend too much time on this one. But it's just fascinated to bring up again, a central component of this that now even the mainstream media starting to acknowledge is going to be has been completely annihilated destroy decimate a central component of dossier. Of course is the Michael Cohen, Trump lawyer the story that he went to Prague to arrange this whole thing with the Kremlin connected people. In other words, Trump's lawyer want to Prague to connect with the Kremlin to to work on hacking Hillary's emails folks, that is a central component of the hoax dossier. That's a big deal if it happened, right, but a huge deal. But Michael Cohen as we have repeatedly said has never been to. Michael Cohen is now a cooperator with the Muller team. And the southern district of New York..

They were ready to go. And he was like he's like what's the secret? So he took some of their some of the ideas improved upon it. It's a really great product. Check it out. All right questions for Komi again. So this is important Jim Komi goes to brief Donald Trump in the in the White House about the dossier after Trump shocks the entire world and gets gets elected wins the presidency, right? Now, he doesn't pref- Trump on the tire dossier. Joe he briefs Trump on again, these it allegations these sexual ones, the ones that were the most ridiculous, but he leaves out the Russian collusion stuff. Why why did you that? Now who asks Jim Komi? To go and brief Donald Trump, President Trump at the White House about the existence of the dossier. Someone tells them, hey, JIMBO j Jimmy boo butts. I think it's a good idea that you go and briefed Trump on this dossier. Oh, it's Jim Clapper. Jim clapper. Wow. Former lead intelligence official for Barack Obama and the Obama administration now one why would they hold the briefing? So as to questions actually to ask why hold the briefing number one? And secondly. Why leave out the collusion stuff? I will answer those questions for you now, hashtag, dear Jim. So why would you hold that briefing? Well, ladies and gentlemen, the dossier was garbage the dossier still garbage. It is a series of nonsensical collusion allegations drafted up by Hillary Clinton's paid position researchers that made its way into a Pfizer court that we know if the points, not stipulated by the left you guys are living in a fairytale. Okay. Points should be stipulated. This point the dossier is fake. It's a fraud. It's it's phony it's made up so. Why brief him on it? Ladies and gentlemen, the media knows at this point that the dossier. Can't be verified yet. The media is desperate to get these charges out into the public about Russian collusion. You know, it's the the the sorted stuff. The triple X details of the dossier that are fake as well. They want those out there to embarrass Trump. But those details are really just they understand that they're not going to be politically damaging over in the long run for a couple of reasons. Number one. Nobody they'd already tried this tactic against Trump that he was a playboy or something it didn't work. And Secondly, they were so ridiculous. That people probably just wrote them off as being nonsense, which is what they were. So let's be clear that that's he has two components. The triple x. And the Russian collusion. Stop right. The triple X stuff again, they want out just to make them look stupid..

"jim komi" Discussed on Big Ideas with Ben Weingarten
"So the way these the way they, they bent over backwards not to make the case on Hillary and the way they've scorched the earth to find anything they could find on Trump and they have violated every norm that we have about investigations, including announcing the existence of a counter intelligence investigation and look. I love Jim Komi, but I mean he gets up in congress March twentieth of twenty seventeen and announces not only. Announces the existence of a counterintelligence investigation, but floats out that. And we're also looking whether they coordinated with the Trump campaign under circumstances where he's been telling Trump for three months. And I don't think. I don't think in an particularly credible way. He's been telling Trump three months. He's not a subject of the investigation. Now to my mind that's nonsense. He was a subject investigation, but that's neither here nor there. He told the president, you're not a subject of or you're not under suspicion, or however you are elated it. But we can't say that publicly. I'd be with them on that except that you can't say publicly other things that would suggest a people that he's a either talk or you don't talk. And if you're gonna talk, you shouldn't talk. We have good rules for you don't talk, but you have to then tell the whole story. So if he had got up on on March twentieth and said, we're also looking at any coordination between Russia's interference in the election and the Trump campaign, but be mindful of the fact that President Trump is not suspected in that as I've told him a number of times, he is not a suspect in our investigation, but we're still looking at what other people in the campaign did. If he just said that, which is what you've been telling Trump then a lot of what we're dealing with, we would not be dealing with and he'd be he'd still be FBI director. Given that's the case, and you talk about sort of the viscera of norms and the scorched earth policy, and we can go through your calms you've written about the litany of issues from the fact that it was a counterintelligence investigation, not a criminal investigation that the order itself covering this was completely vague and seemingly limitless, and also subject to modification down the road with a letter from Rosenstein. And we can talk about the fact that the investigators themselves are being investigated right now in many cases and the the layers of conflict of interest and all of it given that's the case. And you see the way that people can get taken down who were on the wrong side of a particular issue. First of all, what is it that at core is animating those people that are scorching the earth. And then is there still a semblance of Justice because this feels like a Beria like kind of system where we have the man, and we just need to find the crime to stick on him. That to me is the most chilling and frightening thing about all this. Take all the particulars away from it. The fact that if you're on the wrong side, they will get you and they'll find a way even if there's nothing there that is really chilling. Yeah, yeah. I think..

Trump agrees with recommendation to pardon Scooter Libby
"His administration to develop some sort of plan to change the system at very well could impact amazon as a company although amazon is not singled out by name in the text of the executive order and the second piece brian is a part in the president's planning to pardon scooter libby we all remember that name from the two thousand seven trial involving the former covert cia agent valerie plame and scooter libby was convicted of obstruction of justice and of making false statements and perjury now he was he was not pardoned by president george w bush at the time although his prison sentence was commuted so he did not have to serve any time in jail but he was not ever pardoned by bush trump has decided has told people inside the white house that he will pardon libby and libya's important because he was a top aide top national security advisor to then vice president dick cheney so joyce i won't ask you to come out on amazon which is probably big enough to be able to say you know what we're good we'll form our own postal service by the trucks and the planes and hire the people but on scooter libby philip just touched on it why answer this question no one was was asking why scooter libby why now well i think that we'll have to draw the obvious conclusion libby was convicted in two thousand and seven ironically by a special counsel who was appointed by jim komi of all people and scooter libby was convicted of perjury of obstruction of justice and of lying to the fbi his sentence was commuted there's no urgency to fire him at this particular moment in time and it's really hard to miss how strongly this reeks of being a signal that trump is willing to issue a pardon for these particular types of crimes to someone who had this high level of standing inside of the white house almost as though it's a message to paul manafort or to mike flynn in in many ways feels like the circle of policy and this administration is fully completed this point with trump starting out complaining about hillary clinton and potential release of classified material and now pardon.
