Weaver's Shawn because it's important. No, this story has been out there. About this guy for some time and the swamp media buried it over over and over again. For example, back in 2004. The Karl Rove on noted that Weaver had made a pass a young man at a state Republican function in Texas. Weaver would not reply to what the Atlantic called a smear. But those close to him told the Atlantic that their outrage at this an old lie well, it wasn't a lie. The swamp media covered it, then coded for the next couple of decades on now, finally, that it's no longer useful to have him out there attacking Trump finally. The truth is being told. Imagine if you were one of these young men that Weaver made a pass at you trying to say Hey, hello. This guy is not He's not a good guy, and I was 14. He made a pass at me. And being ignored because somehow Weaver was fitting your agenda of being the guy inside the Republican Party who's attacking the Republican Party. Well, it's the Democrat mantra. Who cares? Let's say we're it. Z Governor Andrew Cuomo, who cares? It's the media. Who cares if it's a Democrat? Who cares? Was Republican. We're gonna nail Millwall Bond. We've we've noticed that that is this typical, hypocritical double standard that we see now and the cancel culture again. There there. It's just off the charts. We have Washington Compost in an op ed. Says Trump must never be allowed to have a presidential library. Now they want to take that away from the president. There. Decider of this now? Oh, yeah. Washington Compost and Jeff Bezos. Dr John Eastman. Remember him? He was probably featured during the election. Fraud run up. He was fired from Chapman University on Friday after he spoke at the January 6 Rally in D. C. Former students are coming to his defense. Doesn't matter. Cancel culture will get you no matter where you go if you're trump associate ID, and there's a rumor now, according to CNN, the two lead lawyers Three other attorneys fired from Trump. There are not far from Trump, who left Trump's team, You know that they were the fascist thugs in the left. We're after them. And so they decided to get out of dodge, just like we saw the president election terms, but I don't want to point out that Bob Ehrlich might have been the last real Republican toe hold. The governor's mansion in the state of Maryland, and that might be for the foreseeable future. Because we have now. These are the names of Republicans were considered running in next year. Rhino, Michael Steele. Ehrlich. So lieutenant governor. Hogan's other GOP Hogan's lieutenant governor, Boyd Rutherford. Nice man, but nothing really remarkable there. Very Glassman is the Harford County. Executive. On Ben on the Democrat side. You've got Peter Franchot. The controller from the formerly from the People's Republic of Takoma Park. Fiscally not too bad but socially. You know your typical back a little radical Tom Perez. Oh, my God. And Anthony Brown was a military background. But now is a policy progressive. Jonny zero. AM and prep. Maybe the guy that on the Democrat side that wouldn't be all that bad. John Delaney The former business brain. He is completely out of step with today's Democrats know many. Many of those you just listed are. I think that the smart money is going to go on Peter Franchot, but you know, I was way wrong on the race for Baltimore County executive I didn't think was just get a chance. Frankly, I'm he's now the county is that s O. Who knows? Yeah. And you look at the number of progressives of the General Assembly. And you look at the weakening of the Republican Party. You know, for all his criticism of Donald Trump, Larry Hogan did nothing. Repeat nothing. To build The Republican Party in the state of Maryland over to grow it. He failed in the drive for five, and now the Republicans have become less conservative. Maura Center left. In our General assembly. It's Zaghloul food that's going on right now. But do you for see really the way the state is constructed and the way that you see the General Assembly now with a veto proof progressive majority? Any shot of a real Republican. No winning statewide again here in the state right now that's currently constructed known and unless there is a significant realignment and End to the brutal Jerry Mandarin we see in this state. I don't see that there's an opportunity have more than one Republican Congress person despite the fact that what that would imply is That we only have, you know, a pretty 1/7 of 1/8 of Republicans in this state that just it's not reasonable to think that That they've managed Jerry Mander a couple of district so badly that the Jew P doesn't have a chance there. No. When I first came to Baltimore, there were there were four Republican members of Congress say here Yeah, Yeah, and and two of those were largely very liberal to center left Republicans, but Again. It's we've watched it over the years dwindled down to one and yours will be with us tomorrow on the way in studio, so we'll get his latest on that in his new Competition for despite the fact that Governor Hogan was not successful in the drive for five. He has consultants from what I understand her putting together some additional Which is that you might use moving forward free s'mores for four. Um, up the tree for three.

"Scandal. Professor John Eastman of Chapman university believes there is a Russia's story here. But it doesn't involve President Trump. He spoke with Salem most Larry elder, Chris Esser. No further indictments, no evidence of obstruction, at least at least no finding of obstruction. No, finding of collusion. No finding of conspiracy. No finding coordination. No allegation that the DOJ in any way interfere with the mother report. That's right. But I do want to say this. I we do have a lot of evidence of collusion, but on the other side of the political aisle, the Clinton the Clinton foundation receiving millions and millions of dollars Russian sources for Hillary to sell out our uranium reserves, the funneling of money illegally through through a law firm, a campaign expenditures to pay for a dossier that was rooted on third third hand knowledge from Russian agent collusion with Russia. But it was Hillary and Obama it was not President Trump report completely vindicated President Trump. They look we've all known that for a long time. This was a phony story from the get-go in search of facts to try and support it and after two and a half years they weren't able to come up with anything prize because it wasn't based on reality in the first place, professor eastern. I don't understand why the special counsel said quote, while this report does not conclude that the president. Committed a crime. It does not exonerate him close. It's not his job to exonerate him. Well, I know and what he's trying to do is play both sides of the political aisle in this report or or in the summary of the report that we thus far have from attorney general ballpark. We don't know exactly what Mueller says in the report, we have the summary from from bar, but you know, look, I mean, he's trying I think to protect some of his friends, most notably. Mr. call me who were in in this thing up to their eyeballs in scandal. I mean, we have we have funneling of of Russian money to secretary of state. To sell out our uranium. We have we have campaign violation. We have the outgoing administration conducting spying operation on on the political opponents presidential campaign scored the incoming administration. This is this is not this is beyond what Richard Nixon tried to do. They actually succeeded in doing it. And nobody's talking about that. And I think the whole Mueller story and Russia collusion with designed to kind of get our eyes off the ball really went on here, which a lot of Watergate scaled, what about all the colluding that that Hillary the campaign did with the Ukrainians and all the things you've outlined is the DOJ going to do anything about that. Well, you know, there's some intimation that they're going to and and the calls for full disclosure that you're seeing now not just on a meal a report, but Lindsey Graham calls for a broader disclosure of the fight or warrant that led to the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign during the presidential election. That's what we really need would disclosure on. Because this is stunning that this occurred in America. It's kind of you know, the banana Republic type stop and get it was done at the highest bachelor of the Obama administration. Professor nineteen lawyers a team of forty FBI agents intelligence analysts forensic accountants and other professional staff. Twenty eight hundred subpoenas five hundred search warrants to it in thirty orders from communication records thirteen request a foreign governments for evidence interviewed five hundred witnesses. What are all these continuing investigation by the house going to uncover that the Muller investigation did not well what they're gonna try and do is find little snippets that are ambiguous. So they can put a different spin on it and try and salvage some sense of propriety for the last two years of wasted effort Mueller should have never been appointed in the first place. There was no evidence of a kind and our FBI at department of Justice guidelines and regulations. There was absolutely no basis for appointing a special prosecutor in the first place rod Rosenstein went. Went beyond his legal authority to do that. But then once it had been done everybody's saying, well, you can't get rid of it everybody'll claim collusion and claim obstruction of Justice. And all that. So we had to let it run its course. But it was a monumental waste of time and effort and more importantly, the real sad note here, but Russians to the extent they tried to interfere with the election wasn't to put this on a scale for Hillary or or Donald Trump. It was to rip the country apart. No matter how the election came out and all done with his Mueller report is play the Patsy for what Putin wanted wanted to accomplish in the first place. Professor, what are you supposed? Jeff Sessions is thinking right now. I think Jeff Sessions is regretting that he initially agreed to recuse himself from this whole operation. You know about that carryover ethics officer in the inspector general's office at the department of Justice that told him he needed to recuse themselves, and if he does ever accused himself at that point, then people will be howling that he's you know, breaking ethical rules that Terry over person ought not to have given that advice because it was a Romania. There was nothing that he said or did that should have warranted refusal, but having taken that step to go back on it would lead all sorts of other political complications. So I think he was in a box at a boxing was was the making of Obama administration. Holdover this kind of refusal to recognize the results of the twenty sixteen election and to facilitate the transition and to actually do the job for the new Boston town as career civil servants are supposed to do that didn't happen this time. But it's only the second or third time in our history that we've had such an absolute destruction and the transition.

"Mypillow dot com, again, be sure and use promo code Larry, my guess to professor John Eastman, reacting to the release of the mother report and the four page summary that AG William bar are has released two members of congress. Professor what you said that there ought to be some action against this cabal that thought to take the president down. What form would that take who makes that decision can the president directly AG to do this. Well, the president chief law enforcement officer he thought executive in the country he can do that. But we've got a long tradition of independence of the department of Justice from the White House. So that you can't be accused of going after political opponents, but I do think that that. The career staff at the department of Justice FBI need to be directed to look into this and that direction to come from the attorney general of the United States because what we know publicly already indicates that there were crimes committed by Hillary campaign finance crimes, money laundering, crimes pay a pay for play crimes while she was secretary of state. We we know that there were the the dossier was paid for with illegally funneled campaign funds. Both from the Obama. Carryover presidential campaign fund and the Hillary Clinton campaign fund, those violate federal campaign laws, you know, not to mention all of the classified trafficking and classified information on an unsecured server that she set up deliberately so that she could have communications about this pay for play game that they were doing with the Clinton foundation off off docket is at we're outside of the public purview. All of those things violate a number of federal laws, and they ought to be looked into because as the Democrats keep telling nobody is above the law that includes Hillary Clinton. Professor, what do you suppose? Jeff Sessions is thinking right now. Well, I think Jeff Sessions is regretting that he initially agreed to recuse himself from this whole operation. You know, if there was a carry-over ethics officer in the inspector general's office at the department of Justice that told him he needed to recuse themselves. And if he does have recused himself at that point, and people will be howling that he's you know, breaking ethical rules that carryover person ought to have given that advice because it was a Romania is there was nothing that he said or did that should have warranted refusal, but having taken that step to go back on it would would lead all sorts of other political complications.

Professed we have just fifteen seconds left should either Loretta Lynch or James Colmey, be worried. Well, I think they should. I mean, look, I mean, Loretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac, and these things don't happen by accident that there was there was a criminal conspiracy to get Loretta Lynch to avoid having to indict Hillary Clinton for the crimes, we know she committed professor, John Eastman, as always thank you very much for taking the time. Thank you. Larry take Megan said this about relief factor. I've been using relief factor for a little bit over a month.

"What is it? Declare when we talk about national emergencies usually talking. I love it or something like that. National emergencies. Paul restaurant, America's not aware. Interesting to see what it is is this guy, just plain dumb at this point. Sometimes they they're so sure of themselves, and they they they and their supporters, the Democrats talk amongst themselves. They think President Trump is ridiculous day kind of laugh about him. Always knee ridiculous him and his Twitter feed and everything and they're so confident that they're right that they sometimes reveal too much about themselves. Senator he knows what the federal emergency powers of the president. And he says, well, we're usually talking about nine eleven or something is it like nine eleven he knows he knows what John Eastman articulated, which is there have been national emergencies. Declared on many different. What was the example John Eastman used? The national emergencies act gives him the the power to declare a national emergency. Every president since that act was passed his has used it President Barack Obama used it to declare a national emergency over the swine flu swine flu. So that was a good example. So no, it's not nine eleven in that case, it was the swine flu. Which is. I'm sure it was serious. And I'm sure that he wanted to. Expedite some money. Very quickly to either a radical getting the disease or quarantining the disease or something maybe preventing travel. But in reality using emergency powers is something that all of the president's Barack Obama. Did it? I forget how many times exactly he looks like seven or eight times at least. And is it an emergency June nineteenth two thousand fourteen here. CNN? A crisis in America. They're talking about the crisis at the border. So they're calling it a crisis in twenty fourteen back when they were talking about a solution. In the Obama years back when they were talking about I wish we could strike a deal for comprehensive immigration reform, and so many people who thought that maybe their hopes and dreams we're gonna come true. Like, they could get a comprehensive Bill that involved amnesty that involved, I guess some kind of border security and other humanitarian efforts maybe expanding the number of people who were allowed to come in for asylum. The reason I'm saying all of these things is because I want you to hear the tenor of the arguments from people who are in this article by CNN calling the border crisis. A crisis thousands across the southern border illegally each year in hopes of better lives says CNN in two thousand fourteen when Obama was president. But now, the problem has reached epic proportions. The number of children making these journeys by themselves as WGN since two thousand ten. Authorities estimate, blah, blah, blah, they go on to estimate. How bad it's going to be in the future. If we don't act on this emergency. To complicate matters. Immigrant advocates say the crisis. Has proven to be fertile ground for human traffickers who are quick to take advantage of the chaos. They go on side all this this statistic of human traffickers and drug meals and things like that things. The president is talking about all the time, and they call him a crazy fear monger. But why were they citing these statistics on CNN where they would they advocating Trump's wall back. Then no they were advocating a comprehensive Bill that was their solution. So when the politics called for it. During President Obama's term, many people. And if you just do a Google, search, a Google news search, and you restrict it to before 2016. You'll see the word crisis comes up all the time because they thought they could use the word crisis to get their legislation passed now when Trump is using the word crisis to get his. Either legislation passed or his? Wishes fulfilled as far as border protection. Then they're saying the word crisis is irresponsible. Here is Wendy young president of kids in need of defense, K D or K I Andy kind. I get a national nonprofit immigrant child advocacy groups. She says this in two thousand fourteen everyone involved has gone into emergency mode right now, we are in triage, she said, so she is saying there is a crisis on the border and what she calling for. She was calling for a year humanitarian package and other kinds of legislation things that she's interested in now, she's a humanitarian you you can't begrudge her that. But she's calling it a crisis in two thousand fourteen. Why was she doing that? Was she fearmongering you could say that. 'cause she was pointing out all of the terrible things that are happening on the border in order to get legislation passed. That she wanted. Now, the crazy right wingers want their legislation passed, and they are being called fearmongers. President trump's. Striking a lot more confident tone on this. And I feel like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer getting ever more panicky using words like. You know, the the temper tantrum, and he's a petulant president. It was a petulant president of the United States a person who would say I'll keep government shutdown for a month or years, unless I get my way. So they are going to they wanted change the narrative. To be about the president's mood about the way, he conducts himself in meetings. Unfortunately, the president.

"Of federal workers will miss paychecks Friday. A little more than half of them are still working without pay. Other federal services are suspended, including some food inspections. Well, can President Trump declared a national emergency to bypass congress for the border funding? He's requested Democrats say if he attempts it he'll face legal and political challenges, but Chapman, university constitutional law. Professor, John Eastman, told Fox News. He thinks President Trump can do it. Well, he's he's not relying on inherent authority from the constitution. Although he probably could he's relying on very specific statutes, the the national emergencies. Ac gives him the the power to declare a national emergency. Every president since that act was passed has has use it President Barack Obama used it to declare a national emergency over the swine flu. And then once that national emergency is declared, and I think what's going on the border clearly qualifies. There's a whole bunch of statutory authorities that are triggered for the president including titled thirty three section twenty two ninety three the US code that. Specifically says the president can redeploy money's already authorized for military construction projects in furtherance of the national emergency effort. He's declared. The statute's very clear now you wrote an op Ed I noticed on today that says among other things even a liberal Brennan center for Justice in the New York Times of knowledge that those statutes give the president the authority. He needs to direct existing appropriations toward construction of a border security wall. Once he has declared that national emergency now, David French in the conservative national review is you know, has said wait a second. This is going to just get tied up in the courts, the ninth circuit or somewhere else. They're you know, the left is going to go shopping for a venue to block the president and this'll just be delayed for months. Well, you know, the supreme court has already sent a pretty strong signal that it's getting tired of these lower courts being part of the resistance movement to the results in the last election, the two thousand sixteen election, and and they've they've even sent a shot across the lower courts against issuing nationwide injunctions. So I think I'd have no doubt that they'll be some hyper partisan lower court that would move to strike this down there striking down anything. The president does is watch the right legal answer that will ultimately be decided by the supreme court. And I have no doubt that the president's own powers as commander in chief combined with a very clear statutory delegation of powers from the congress are are gonna find that. These actions will be upheld. Now, the president again threatened to declare the emergency after talks with Democrats broke down a billionaire investor and democratic activists says he'll focus on trying to impeach President Trump rather than making a run for the White House. Twenty twenty Tom Steiner announced Wednesday, he'll poor forty million dollars into the campaign to drum up support for removing the president from office. Year ago yesterday. I announced it I'd be focusing on two things in two thousand eighteen gauging young voters and pushing for impeachment. I believed that those two causes would make the biggest differential positive impact on our country. I said last year. I'm willing to.

"My next guest, professor, John Eastman Chapman university. Professors. Always thank you very much for joining us. You hold it to a great show. And I particularly like that lead and call you had about the dignity of American state funerals was going to ask you about the 'cause I know you worked in the Reagan administration. You must have had an interaction with with the former vice president, I did I did. In fact, I was a Dallas county chair. Volunteer chairman for the Reagan Bush efforts in nineteen eighty and got to meet him and President Reagan during the during the last final frenzy lead up to the election. Did you professor have the same reaction? I had that. If if a professor if a President George Herbert Walker Bush had had one tenth of respect that. We're seeing right now when he ran for reelection in one thousand nine hundred eighty would have carried forty nine states. I think that's right. Yeah. Although I will tell you I was on the ballot in nineteen ninety two running for congress. Nineteen ninety three and that was the year ten days before the election. He broke his pledge about no new taxes, and it and it caused Republicans all across the country. Probably decline in ten points. And I lost like ten points. Interesting. You should mention that professor because I hear people on the left during the time of the funeral praising him for breaking the no new tax prayer, Andrew Mitchell of MSNBC, a called an inactive, courage. But if I understand it President George Herbert Walker Bush later on said, it was the biggest mistake of his presidency or one of the biggest mistakes. The other one was Justice, David suitor. I think he's right. But but but but one of the greatest successes of his president dealers. Course nominating and getting confirmed that Clarence Thomas for the supreme court the United States, my former law. Let's talk about what happened today on the mother front. He is apparently accusing Robert Paul Manafort of lying and recommending substantial jail time and on the case of Michael Cohen also recommending substantial jail time. Well, that's right. And there's a third case we need to be talking about out there as well. Complained just recently filed with the department of Justice facials by Jane Jerome Corsi, accusing Miller and his team of pressuring him to lie in order to get a case made against President Trump on collusion any any filed ethics complaints. I think know the theme we see between all three of these cases Manafort refusing to to say things that we're going to implicate President Trump. And and then Mueller's team, you know, threatening now to renege on me. Bargain agreement and go after him that suggests that this is being an overly aggressive independent or a special prosecutor office to try and get stopped at they they know not there. And then you can also read that ended up the Colin sentencing memo that was filed a few hours ago up in the southern district of New York. The prosecutors in the southern district of New York US attorney's office are asking for a serious jail time, which would not be the case. If if the information he had been providing to the special prosecutor's office had been of any use. So where does this leave us? What what's the what's the next step? Well, look, I think there's a bigger problem here. I I have no doubt that colon Manafort and others probably violated one or other laws. One of the problems here is we we are starting to get perilously close to the old Soviet notion of selective prosecution because there are so many laws. There's not a single one of us. It doesn't go through the day. In all likelihood without violating summer another federal law. And when you kind of put the intense scrutiny on any individual to see what they've done rather than on crime. You know about to see who committed them you run a real risk of selective. Prosecution and using the law enforcement tools of are unbelievably powerful federal government for partisan political end. You know, one of the things that Cullen with is lying to congress. I don't see any similar prosecution against Eric Holder, or or the IRS officials that we have documented lied to congress to hold you. Hold on right now pick that thought up on the other end..

"I guess a professor John Eastman of Chapman university. Professor. You heard the president say that their distinction between the way Ivanka use personal Email versus the way Hillary use personal E mail is he right? I think he is. Right. You know, look. I understand it. She used her her g mail account, which everybody has an intense on emails during the transition before things were formerly set up. You know, once once the officers set up the new administration comes in she hands those over so that they're part of the of the government records, which are you know, when when you're working for the government, and you're doing government business. The communication g make our the people's business not your private business, but they're all part of the of the government records archives. Hillary Clinton on the other hand set up a private server in order to engage in massive communications with with people that are donating to the Clinton foundation who have business before her a secretary of state deliberately in order to tide and prevent transparency of her communications. And then when people find out about the server, she destroyed those doctors. So that nobody could see what was actually there. I mean, it's it's it's different. It's night and day the Muller interrogatory have now apparently professor been answered by the president and his lawyers. What were the questions and will the answers, even more inquiries? Well, I hope not I mean, you know, this this false story of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. It's been going on for two years. It had no meat at the beginning. It was a it was a narrative spun to try and mitigate the Democrats lost. But also, I think the mitigate the actual collusion that went on on the democrat side of the aisle. Now that if the two years, we, you know, not just a the FBI in a a special counsel Mueller's investigation. But if every major media outlet in the country trying to find some connection here, there's still no evidence of anything derogatory for designed to try and catch President Trump and misstating something so them, a perjury. Or what have you? I think I think the answer is very carefully drawn to to be explicit about the Russia investigation. I'll not to engage in a you know, what what what amounts to a general warrant. Let's let's find out if there's anything in your past seventy years of life that you committed a, you know, a crime or infraction of some regulation and go after you court, I think they tried to narrow it not Miller. But I think the president people said we're not answering those questions your your task here is on this supposed that Russia investigation. And we're going to give you what information we have. And I think he's done that. And hopefully, this will put a threat. So what happens next? The next step. Well, I'd like to see a report Miller we've looked at this for two years. We find no evidence of it. We did uncover some other crimes or some other people not tied to the campaign or prior to their involvement with the campaign, and we brought those indictments as we were obligated to do. But but beyond that, there's nothing here, and we're closing up the books. That's what I hope will happen. Do you believe that the Democrats will push for articles of impeachment? Well, I do but they they started talking about impeachment the day after the election. Twenty sixteen because they just couldn't believe that the American people who voted for Donald Trump over gallery Clinton. So now, they now they've got a majority in the house. I have no doubt that they'll try and push that through. There's also equally no doubt that he will not lead to a conviction in the Senate which requires a two-thirds vote. It is it is raw and base politics. And quite frankly, I think they're handing Donald Trump capacity reelection in twenty twenty for the nonsense during gauge again, we have just a few seconds left. I was struck by the fact that Rosenstein, the man that the Democrats thought should be put as acting AG referred to Whittaker as as a superb choice into quote that kind of quite a lot of a lot of dissent. Didn't it? Well, it did at my my favorite was was was an op-ed in the in the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal. I forget which one New York Times, I guess by former acting solicitor generally pop yell and George Conway claiming that there's no constitutional authority to appoint an acting attorney general because it's a Senate confirmed position. Well, the general is also a sack confirm position and Kaci L himself was serving in that acting capacity. He worked for Eric Holder who had been appointed acting attorney general by Clinton at the end of the Clinton administration. And then he worked in the Obama administration that ended out with at waiting Sally Yates is acting attorney general so the double standards that these guys offer as I opposed to take it with a straight face is just laughable, professor, John Eastman, is always thank you very much for coming on.

"To the program. Professor, John Eastman. Former dean Chapman university. Professor there. Professor much has happened last smoking. Things a lot happening every week very an Obama pointed judge drops blocks Trump from the executive order that I guess would have altered the way people can apply for asylum. You would you would have had to come in to one of the official ports of entry. If you come to the country illegally and you apply for asylum. The executive order would have been automatically that application would be turned down. Yeah. That's right. And there's a there's a statute here. And the judge relies on a particular statute that sets out the basic rule that you can see if you're pregnant already in the United States, you can seek asylum or you can seek upon admission to the United States whether or not at a lawful point of entry. That's that's what he says. And he said that's pretty clear, so the president couldn't ban asylum things for people coming in illegally at other than ports of entry. But what he ignores is subsection b of that statue, which sent the attorney general Janette additional criteria for whether you know, people can apply her silent or not which is what the department of Justice department of homeland security did based on the president's proclamation that we got a serious problem on the border. We're not gonna just open it for tens of thousands of people coming in. And then like, you know, if we do happen to catch them, you know, then making claims for asylum. So a judge since professor since the judge has entered this. Restraining order. So that this executive order cannot go forward. So all the people now who are on the border who coming here, whether they come illegally, whether they come over the wall, whether they come through an official port of entry automatically those claims to be considered and we're going to release them into the interior of the country. That's right. Because you know, there are other rules that have already shut down the statutory authority for expedited review, and and yeah, no. It's just it's just a that's what the what the judges are doing here is creating huge loopholes to our national security and the authority that congress expressly gave the president should control our borders. Professor. I've heard two very different things about how often people who want to apply for asylum fact, show up President Trump said only about nine or ten percent ever show up for their court date. I've heard ninety percent show up for the court date. What's the truth? Well, yeah. The ACLU's lawsuit claims that ninety percent show for the court date. But that's only looking at a very small subset of people who have legitimate asylum claims guess what they're gonna show up because as soon as they've got their legitimate claim crashed they get not only authorization to stay in the United States, but they get a path to citizenship. But if you don't have it, you know, if your claim for asylum was species, and you know, and they're very specific rules on who's eligible for asylum. People just wanting to seek a different light here. They, you know, the economy's are bad and our country are not eligible for asylum and refugee status asylum and refugee status is very limited to people who have a have already been prosecuted or have any legitimate fear of being targeted for because of their race or religion or ethnic background or a political party views sex just wanting to move in the United States from Guatemala doesn't qualify you for asylum, and the numbers there are people that are, you know, given us expedited review and then released into the country to actually show up for their removal proceedings, where they're supposed to raise in due course, their asylum claims the percentage of people that don't show up for those huge. My guest is professor John Eastman of Chapman university. Professor. New York Times big article breathless article that says Donald Trump won it the White House counsel, Doug Mcgann to prosecute Hillary and to prosecute James, call me, but had to be talked out of it. Why is that a big deal? The big story. Well, you know, because they're trying to make it look like President Trump was was, you know, acting like a third world dictator prosecuting his political opponents. That's not of course, what's going on. What we have is hard evidence of a significant number of crimes that we know we're committed by Hillary Clinton. The destruction of government documents on her private server that was set up to avoid transparency. All of that was the illegal trafficking in classified information that she knew was classified. That's that's that's those are serious felony the laundering of money from her political campaign through her campaigns law firm to hire a fusion GPS to coordinate with the Russians and the British former spy to create a dossier that then became fodder for the Obama administration spying on their political opponents, I can't begin to tell you. How many crimes are involved in that one after another not to mention of massive funneling of funds through the Clinton administration to keep on the payroll all her political consultants while taking charitable deductions and also pay for play while she was secretary of state all of these things are crimes, and and and yet none of it has been investigated. The people that. The key people that were involved in it were given immunity by the very same lawyer. So you know, that we're helping facilitate it it really is stunning. And so I think all Don Mcgann has looked at you know, let's leave us alone. There's a lot of other stuff to fry President Trump back down, even though, you know, a lot of the people on the campaign trail wanted her to be held accountable for the crime she committed because what's the what's the common mantra. Nobody is above the law that includes Hillary Clinton. And professor the breathless tone of the New York Times struck me as odd because the president at least the president during the campaign promise that he was going to look into her situation. So why would they be so surprised that he's asked the White House counsel to look into situation? Well, what they're trying to do is turn the heat up. So that nobody will look behind the cover of what went on here. And you know, everybody would be afraid because they'll be attacked is being partisan or what have you? But what that means is the New York Times is now taking the position that Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill Clinton us law that only can they get away with those kind of crimes legitimate even to look into them. That's what the New York Times is now standing for the favor of record does the United State, professor. He's been don't don't go anywhere. I want to ask you about Ivanka's.

"Professor John Eastman from Chapman university. Former dean don't teach us our guest. Professor. Thank you very much for taking the time. I know you're busy. I appreciate it. Pleasure to be on your program and talk with the sages south central in the prince of PICO union. Well, thank you, sir should sessions in your view have been fired. I think I think general sessions did a fabulous job. But I do not think you needed to recuse himself from the Russian investigation as broadly as he did and the consequences of that decision, which the which to carry over Obama ethics officer directed him to do has been to create a worse conflict of interest with rod Rosenstein who appointed Mueller, you know, who's very close friends with one of the people involved in the investigation. Former FBI director Komi so the conflicts of interests he just kept piling up. All of the consequence of I think an overly cautious decision to recuse at at at the get go, and it was clear that the president and the attorney general we're not seeing eye to eye on that the president needs to have somebody with full topic at the at the department of Justice. Professor, don't you think had he not recused himself or not promised to recuse himself in the event that the campaign was investigative. He wouldn't have been confirmed. Well, you know, maybe. But, but, you know, at at some point the kind of bullying to prevent the president from getting these people needs to be responded with punching these guys in the nose and he hid dared members of congress of the Senate, not to confirm the president's choices attorney general that would have been the first time in our nation's history. Anything of such consequence in the high appointments in the cabinet, would it would have been blocked for something frivolous as those claims, and and I think that could have been part of the election story at the Democrats done. I don't think they would have followed through on those threats. But, you know, that's that's you know, armchair quarterbacking later as easy to do. Tell me about the acting AG. Who is he what do you know about it? Well, he was a he's been around for a while. He was US attorney Senate confirmed a presidential appointment back. US attorney in Iowa ISA was hired a year ago to be the chief of staff in the department of Justice for. Attorney general sessions, I think he's well qualified for the position, but there's a there's a patently frivolous. Article out in the New York Times op Ed today by the former acting solicitor general of the United States Neil cocktails who worked for attorney general holder who had once served as acting attorney general at the end of the Clinton administration until John Ashcroft got confirmed you work in an administration, the Obama administration that ended with acting attorney general Sally gay to stayed on during the early days of the Trump administration, creating Abbott, and he argues that it's unconstitutional for there to be an acting attorney general really, it's really quite priceless. The acting attorney general had been accused by the Democrats of having conflict of interest because when he was a private citizen. He was on CNN and said that he thought the way to deal with the monarch probe is to starve it for money. So that they'd have to wind down the probe or at least cut it down substantially. Therefore, he's got an opinion about the probe. Therefore, he's got a conflict of interest. Well, that's that's pretty interesting because rod Rosenstein assigned one of the FIS warranted part of the investigation, and and he's the one supervising investigation. So so actual conflict of interest doesn't matter if it cuts the Democrats direction but perceived conflict of interest based on a private citizen article some years ago just expressing of you point is disqualifying conflict of interest. This is this is really a preposterous double standard. Professor, John Eastman is my guess former dean of Chapman university. Professor what? About the fate of Rosenstein and Muller. Do you expect either or one or the other to be fired? Well, I don't expect him to be fired. Rod Rosenstein is no longer supervising the the Mueller investigation because the only reason he was in that position because attorney general sessions Hedera to themselves Whitaker is not recused. And so as of the effective moment of the appointment, rod Rosenstein is no longer in a supervisory authority now there are other things going on at the department of Justice with rod Rosenstein, hands all over it that I think warrant serious look at his continued employment in that position such as withholding critical, but damning evidence from congressional investigators about the visor one process that he was involved in and claiming national security for things that had nothing to do with national security. But, but, but you know, we're designed to try and hide the the really unbelievable. Scandal that went on in the closing days of the Obama administration, which is phoning up of dossier with campaign funds to service the basis to get a five warrant to spy on the opposing political campaign of the presidential candidate. I mean, this is stunning. And to the extent rod Rosenstein has as much importation in that as news has led onto believe he ought to have been done a long time ago. Professor just fifteen twenty seconds left can the house force Trump to turn over his tax returns. I don't know, you know, we're going to see some very interesting new law made here they're gonna go after his tax returns are going to go after his his executive branch communication. We'll have new caveats on executive privilege, but also on rights to privacy. Tax returns are supposed to be private, and you know, under under federal law at congress is trying to get at his tax returns. So they can make them public. So I think we're gonna see some very interesting law made here as a democrat overplay their hand now that they control the house of representatives professors. Always thank you so much for taking the time. We appreciate it. Thank you, take care. Now history's going to look back at President Trump as the president who defined leadership to celebrate his milestone achievements of our forty fifth president noble, gold has minute and exclusive collector's piece.

I mean, I think it's almost to give the Democrats are going to use subpoena power to go after you know, two or three really big issues. One the president finances too. You know, how is the president been taking money and gifts from foreign nations? How has it benefited as business and then three any ties to Russia? That was time Justice reporter, Katie Benner. And joining me now to discuss sessions firing is Victoria basenji. She's a Brennan center for Justice fellow and welcome Victoria, good to have you with us. Victoria besetting. Well, let me introduce our other guest. John Eastman is joining us. He's professor at Chapman University School of law. He's also senior fellow at the Claremont institute. Welcome John Eastman. Good to have you back. Thank thanks very much. Let me begin with you. What we try to connect with Victoria. Are you alarm by these recent events are you concerned about them. Well. Only to this extent. I'm not alarmed about the Russian investigation. I think we need an attorney general that supervising that because quite frankly, the the person that has been supervising it because again will sessions recusals is himself implicated in some of the issues that are being investigated, and that that actually creates a real conflict rather than the mere appearance of conflict, which is what led general sessions to recuse himself in the first place. I think we have Victoria of the city on the line now, Victoria with us. I hope so okay. Your hopes realized there there is some alarm coming from you on this. And I want to get it back and forth between you and John Eastman. But what are you concerned about here? Well, in in addition to the leap pretty obvious conflicts of interests that would occur has the the the the way he's prejudged the Muller investigation. His the the evidence of his personal loyalty to President Trump rather than his loyalty to the rule of law and to the equitable enforcement of of our laws in America. There's also a substantial likelihood that he was appointed improperly to be the acting attorney general the the way and acting attorney general is put in place is governed by a complicated series of statutes and regulations in it's not a slam dunk that he actually should the president has the right to just fire the attorney general and then hand pick a successor. Let me go back to you on that. Johnny spin loyalty overruling the rule of law is a concern. Not not at all. And I'm I'm quite frankly stunned about the exaggeration. I just heard look he wrote an article for CNN a year ago saying you cannot have an independent or a special prosecutor with an unfettered scope of of jurisdiction in in in the old days. In fact, one of the reasons we had the revolutionary war is what we call a general warrant, you don't identify person. And then just investigate until you can try and find evidence of a crime, that's a general war. Ended department of Justice policy is very clear on here. There should be recusals. If there is evidence of a crime. There was not and I don't think Jeff Sessions should accused himself from the get go. But the second thing is whoever appoints the special prosecutor is opposed to define and confined sculpture investigation. So it doesn't just become an unfettered investigation looking at whoever they want for whatever reason that that's the rule of law and all that Whitaker was doing that article was commenting on. If if the Mueller investigation is going. Beyond the skulk authority. That's a real problem for the rule of law. But is there in your judgment and improper nature of this appointment? No the the vacancies in office act. I think makes it clear you've got to have been in a position for at least ninety days. He was he was appointed as chief of staff last October or November twenty seventeen so year a year ago, and the the president has authority under that statute just elevate conc- for up to two hundred twenty days. So I don't think there's any question that the galaxy there it can't last forever. It's not a permanent appointment of Betty can last in the interim Intel he names successor to general sessions. But we're hearing Victoria, the study that at this point. Well, actually CNN is reported that the team has started writing its final report they reported this today, and that's gonna if that's going to go forward. Do we have some concerns about how that Whitaker may interfere with it or may actually stand in the way of it? Some fashion. Sure. But if I could add real quickly going back to the vacancies reform act there, there are two problems with the analysis that we just had for first of all it's two hundred ten days that the person would be able to act as an acting but second of all the vacancies reform act. It's not entirely clear that the vacancies reformat can supplement. The fact that the department of Justice has its own organic statute separately and independently and specifically passed by congress saying what's supposed to happen. Lindy attorney general is no longer in place. That's question number one question number two regarding the vacancies reform act is it's not at all clear whether or not the president can use the vacancies reform act to insert his handpicked acting successor. When he has fired the attorney general it was the subject of litigation earlier this year after he fired the secretary of the Veterans Administration Schulkin and putting his own handpicked successor. It didn't ultimately come to judgment, but it is an open legal question. So it's not a slam dunk that the president has the absolute right to appoint Whittaker as the acting Torney general more. Moreover, the fact that Whitaker merely said at one point or another that the Muller investigation was unfettered is not the end of Whitaker's prejudging, the issues of his intimate personal relationships with people who've been witnesses in it. He also said that he thought Trump junior is meeting in the Trump Tower to get information about Russia's assistance for the for the Trump campaign was no problem. He also said that he thought that they Muller investigation was veering on being a witch month which hunt he said that they were engaging in intimidation that they were a Lynch mob. He had there are a series of statements that he's made where that indicate a billboard size an indication of what he intends to do in the Muller investigation. And that was clearly driving the president to appoint him. And the president appointed him for no reason other than attempting to protect his own personal business and his own personal desires. So I wouldn't simply, you know, toss out the idea that would've. Kher has reasons the Whitaker is conflicted. And that we should just absolutely say. Oh, no problem. He can be the president can hand pick whoever he wants to be the acting attorney general pay no attention to the actual laws out there. I'd like to get a response from each on Eastman. But before I ask you to respond to what you just heard from Victoria, the city. I want you to talk about the fact that the timing of this seems rather strange to many people because it came just a few hours after Donald Trump junior said that he expects to be indicted. Well, it it also came after the midterm election, which is what the president had been intimating for quite some time. So we can find correlations and without any causation all over the place. I want to go that the constitution's pretty clear here. Article two says the executive powers in the president the president can fire the whole lot of the folks over at the department of Justice if he wanted to politically that would not be smart, but it's clearly within his constitutional authority to do. So the real conflict here, let's be very clear, and I think what this whole charade of this. Russia investigation has been about is trying to mask where the real Russia collusion occurred week that hard evidence hard evidence that rod Rosenstein himself was implicated in this. We've got the Obama campaign fund and the Hillary Clinton campaign funding judge fusion GPS dossier on President Trump that implicated Russia, and that was then used to obtain Fiso warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. This is stunning scandal. And one of the guys at signed off. On those fighters warrants that ought to be part of the abroad in brush investigation is rod Rosenstein, that's not a, you know, speculation from an opinion piece conflict. That's a hard conflict of interest. And yet this guy is the one who appointed Mueller who decide what scope of power Mueller had who is continuing to supervise the Mueller investigation under any real world. That would be the conflict of interest. That is raising people's eyebrows, not not somebody who wasn't even in government wrote an op Ed some years ago, can you address Victoria vicinity the role of rod Rosenstein in this as you see. Rod Rosenstein is a career prosecutor in the department of Justice who has demonstrated time after time. And and a Republican is well appointed by the president who has demonstrated time after time after time that he is a level headed dispassionate administrator of this investigation. Muller himself is the one who's running the investigation. And and and he likewise is Republican in the former head of the FBI if if he thinks her has evidence that Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians I'm sure he's investigating at making conclusions about that. I would also add that Rosenstein has been subject to substantial oversight by the house and by the Senate regarding his decisions to appoint Muller and the scope of the appointment for Muller, and and thus far no one has actually been able to credibly suggests that he is inappropriately biased or is in a. Appropriately conflicted out of being able to supervise that when the house of Warren. I mean, this is awards and spike spying on the opposing campaign is at the heart of this conflict and this scandal. He's the one that signed it. How is that not evidence hard evidence? We know that he's admitted that he signed the warrant. How is that not hard evidence of a conflict of interest over the investigation is supposed to be looking at Russia's involvement in the last campaign. It's stunning the go back to the fisa warrant maybe have you Victoria, the SETI define it for our listeners as you come up on. Yeah. Yeah. For five says the foreign intelligence surveillance act, and it's a a warrant provision that allows the government to listen in on to basically wiretap conversations that are occurring that deal with foreign intelligence issues. It's different than a regular warrant that might be issued regarding American citizens or or a criminal crimes that are being committed. It is it's basically a foreign intelligence and forgive me. Rod Rosenstein did sign that fight. Is a one correct. In addition to many other people in the department of Justice, and then it was alternately improved approved multiple times by multiple judges. There were people like Roger stone coming under investigation that may be apart from this. I mean, we have to kinda sort it out, and we'll get into the weeds of bit here.
