I mean i'm not too often. I'm nothing founded. But in this instance. And i knew after the uss cole incident. Where i call them at four in the morning He put his phone on speaker phone on speaker. So i knew to wait for it to go to voicemail. And all i could say for the message because he would hear it and all i could do was shout. Cnn get up get up. Get up get up. And he was just like and he picks up twenty goes. Now come and i'm like set up. Cnn cnn cnn cnn. That's all. I can say what shut up. Cnn he goes up. He turns on cnn. And he's like what the fuck is happening. I get up. Get your shit on goto the skiff. That's are classified facility. Get on intel link right which is our intelligence and i said everyone's going to be calling you all right now. It's about nine ish. I get my two coffees. My friend i go. We gotta go back to the office. We gotta go to new york and she's like why are we going to new york i go. This is the greatest act of terrorism in american history. If not history now. We have no idea that what's going to happen next. I'm just thinking billings gonna have fire or they're gonna have to put it out. It's gonna be terrible and as we're driving down independence boulevard. We stop at the intersection. Where the lincoln memorial is to my right. And i'm looking at arlington cemetery. And i'm listening to npr. And as i'm listening. I see an airplane. Come from the west. And it goes to the marine corps headquarters and the sheraton up near what was known as the navy and expect. Then it's since been dismantled. And i said oh look i sit there rerouting the planes to come from the west and not over memorial bridge right and just as i said that i go okay. It's gonna start. I'm thinking yeah. It's going to bank right over crystal city and go into reagan and the plane just kept going down down down and fireball into the building and i went to the pentagon into the pentagon and i i will never forget what i said that instant my mind went into a global map of the united states starting on the east coast and expanding to the west coast and it went new york pentagon and i said we're under attack rounder nationwide attack. I said hold on. And i jammed it on the floor. Went through the light went right to the crash site. Got out of the car and people are starting to stream out of the pentagon and the whole side of the d. Ring the d ring at the helicopter pad is on fire right and this is before the building collapsed. It just had impact and people are starting to come out like it's like a fire drill like there's a fire there and so i start running out. In the first injured people started coming out. And i saw this woman completely covered dos with a baby and the baby was dust was covered in dust and trained as an emt and one of the things that i learned was crying baby. Good silent baby bad right and so a bunch of people around in the baby was wailing and crying baby. Good okay. i'm gonna keep moving. And as i went down towards the crash site. I said you have to look for what we call point of sanity. And so i started looking around and then i saw this tree and at the tree was where a group of people were bringing wounded people out of the deering right next to the crash site so long story very short. I saw the person who is my personal hero. I mean i've seen a lot of stuff in my entire career in even in wars before. And after i think this person is just the most here rogue person i ever saw and it was a a an woman army uniform. She had her skirt was running around in stockings and she was creating triage there. And then i see the secretary of defense rumsfeld. Come over and she points to a stretcher and him in a couple of other guys are putting a person on a stretcher and they're bringing it over to her and i said oh this an army doctor and i said hey. I'm a senior chief in civilian clothes. What can i do for you. What what do you need done she goes. I need to get these people mobilized. We're to start moving. People out of that building were injured out of that building. And i said okay. I see a marine sergeant and a marine corporal walking towards marine headquarters. And i go get over here. And i go. I need you to form up here into. Rose get their ties off. Backpacks off hats off. We're going to go start stretcher. Teams and those two marines went over there and marines do right they start barking orders and they started people started forming up in the hundreds in lines and i was like hat's off coats off backpacks off rings off right and i said teams of five. Move over here grab a stretcher head to the d ring door and so you know i got that done and we started getting the teams to start moving people out of the building and i found out that the person who is running the triage was a was a was an army. Colonel called lieutenant. Colonel patty who rojo and i found her over at the hilo pad staring into the fire and she was looking for victims around the site and i thought no i saw that plane fly in there and there are jet pieces everywhere around us in next to her leg to to as i was looking down to her left. My right was a six foot disc with the letters in red white and blue of the letter c. from american airlines and then the alert that there was a fourth airplane was coming so that was essentially my nine eleven day and every year. I have pretty solid post traumatic stress on that day. Thanks to malcolm for a great interview and.

"What is your favourite gun. That's a loaded question but don't cheer my favourite gun. That's very strange question. But it's funny. It's one of those strange questions. I actually have an answer to your an expert in all sorts of things. I am actually a gun collector and i collect a whole series of what i call clone weapons. These are weapons. I would have carried or did carry. When i was operating in the middle east so i have very you know. They're all special operations configured rifles. And i also have a collection of special operation sniper rifles so my favorite. It's like asking what your favorite child is but there you know there are. There are weapons that have different different capabilities. And the ones you know. There are highly collectible weapons and firearms and then there are those that you you really would practice on and i would say the one that i'm that is probably the most collectible In my inventory is a special operations issue naval special warfare issue so it was kind that were issued to the seal team. Full kit except for the suppressor in except for the silencer and that say It's called the mark levin mud zero and it's a sniper rifle That was standard issue throughout the entire afghan war Semiautomatic looks like an ar fifteen. But it's a much bigger bullet and it's very very rare that they have the actual kit. Kit is the actual case exactly as its issue to a seal team member everything. That's inside it. With the exception of the suppressor because the suppressor is a completely different ball of wax that you have to apply to the government to get and so the optics in there. You know the documentation right down to the toolkit and cleaning rod and everything including all the paperwork so it is a government issue weapon that i happen to get on the open market. They only have a couple of these every once in a while high. Did you get as a soldier. Not very high. I mean you know high relative because there are in most services. There are two branches right. There's officer which is when you go to university and you get a commission in your know battlefield leader and you go from like lieutenant into general and then enlisted. Enlisted is when you start from private or seaman and you work up to sergeant major but within the navy. We actually have three differentiated sections. We have officers. we have enlisted. And then we have chiefs and the navy has this category chief because it required people who were technical experts on ships or systems and who would be the corporate knowledge of ship right officers. Come and go right. They rise up and rank they go off to other commands enlisted people that come and go left and right but chiefs are usually the lifers and those three ranks from e seven eight and nine which is chief senior chief and master chief. They are in the navy. God's word when they make chief they have an entire two-month initiation process or you're educated and then you have a special highly interesting ceremony where they initiate you into the brotherhood of chief. So there's a creed for the chiefs. We wear khaki uniform like the officers but a different hat. Insignia that specifies. A chief you and i was a senior chief petty officer out of the three. So have chief senior chief master chief. My dad was a master chief which is as high as you can go. In the enlisted ranks. My brother was a senior chief of dr atomic. Submarines my dad worked in boiler systems. Back starting back in the fifties so we have a few chiefs in our family but being a chief is a global brotherhood. And i mean. I am obligated. You know someone who is a chief and can prove to me that he's a navy chief and he asked me a question straight up. I am obligated to give him a straight up answer and this is where sort of my claim to fame. Came came in When i was at msnbc I was the terrorism. Analyst is still him and they brought me on as a military member former military member to talk about how donald trump was insulting the gold star families and i was on camera with name Steve cortez who is a conservative talker and he insulted zero khan and And his wife in front of me. And i went to a place that you generally do not see right. I went right back to the very moment that i was still in the navy and a senior chief petty officer and i turned on him and i gave him the full blast of what any poured dumb stupid soldier. Who came across me and did a mistake would get and i just chewed him out on national tv and the funny thing is. There's this little technique we use when we're really angry. We put our left hand on our hip and our right hand comes out into a flat. Palmed like i'm gonna slap you and bends at the elbow and that's called the blade hand and that means you're really angry and you are serving it to him right. I didn't even know i was doing that. I had chiefs around the world right to me and said you did it right. You were blade handing that. I was like what and they were here like. Yes right right on chief. You went full senior chief on that guy and i said well i just was not going to allow a family that had sacrificed their son for us to be insulted in front of me. And so the chief world for anyone who knows chiefs or was in the navy. It's different from like sergeant majors. I mean all chiefs are revered and feared and we have our own little spaces on ships in that commands called the goat locker because in the old days navy. They all had like those little wispy beards at the chin kung fu beards and they would live in a place near where the goats were stored. Right the old goats locker so all spaces for chiefs where you were what. You can't come into you just can't walk into it. You have to have permission officers have to have permission to come into. It is called the goat locker. I even have a goat locker in my house. So are you also a spy. Well i'm naval intelligence. I was as a matter of fact. And i us naval intelligence euphemistically to sort of stay away from where i really was. But now that. I'm i'm out and about everyone knows I was a naval cryptology. A codebreaker that's what cryptology is is the study of breaking codes and the cryptologic field is the field that since oh really formally organized just before world war two where we studied. Let me give it to you. I can't tell you what we do in the modern world. But i'm gonna tell you what we did in world war two so if you watch the battle of midway movie the old one not the new one You will understand that. We intercept japanese communications for example back then that were being broadcast or put out by morse code we would intercept that and those messages could in plain voice and so we would understand it. So we'd have a japanese linguist. Listen to it and then if it was encoded it was sent in morse code or some other machine And then cryptology would actually work that code backwards and break the code. Which of course would come out into japanese and then cryptologic linguist which is like what i was would translate and interpret and determine the intelligence value of that. So that's how it was done. That's how we actually won the battle of midway a team of Communications intercept operators were collecting japanese naval codes and a brilliant team including led by a guy who used to play poker with japan's naval commander yamamoto when he was a liaison officer in japan. Who was fluent japanese name Commander rochefort Actually broke the code of the japanese navy. Prior to midway the j twenty five coat and they could they could read the japanese orders so whether go and they said the japanese fleet which has now disappeared is northwest of midway island. They are going to invade midway with an amphibious fleet. And there are six japanese aircraft carriers out there and they don't know where we are and so we snuck up on them knowing precisely where they were bombed them and sank five out of six of the japanese carrier. Can you talk about. Can you name some of the battles that we might have heard of that. You've been a party. Yeah there's a few you know. I you know in my world and this goes back to the words spy by the way we use it euphemistically because anyone who's an intelligence collector technically buying and i am on the board of the international spy museum in washington. So yes some of the operations. That i was involved in you might have known about I was in beirut in one thousand nine hundred eighty three before the marine barracks bombing killed two hundred and forty three marines. I was there for the as a matter of fact i arrived that the day before the american embassy was bombed and they killed all of the cia staff in that bombing. Nine cia officers. And that day. I mean i was nineteen years old and i became one of the only five people still left in the country..

"The Air Force army to do this thing. Colonel Jacobs your thoughts as well definitely, a little bit of damage control here needed for the military, just given the fact that the president is put them in a difficult situation. What does the military? Both at civilian and military leadership going forward to maintain. Both the trust and the confidence of the American people. You know it's interesting that when general. Milley did what he did, and then reversed himself and apologize. The latter was the smartest thing he could do. We've got two million more than two million kids in uniform. Watching what happens watching what the chain of command does they been imbued with the notion that? The military establishment is not for domestic political purposes, and they need to see a confirmation of that what has to happen now is that the chain of command needs to continue on that line and reinvigorate the military establishment than with the notion that it serves the defense of the republic. Jennifer Rubin your final thoughts as well when we talk about where we stand today following the debate that we're having both the presence of the military or the national guard on the streets of America being used the kind of break in rank, if you will from both the Secretary of Defense Mark Milley. And really this debate now that rages on about. The use of confederate names and monuments has the military in this country been politicized by Donald trump in the detrimental way. I think he's tried to with every fiber of his being and I think what happened this week. Is the military, said no, not here, not us and what struck me I think throughout the speech was that the military has been imbued with honor with dignity with respect for the Constitution that Donald Trump is entirely lacking. It's sad. It's pathetic that they have a commander in chief that is unworthy of them. They are magnificent. They are the best in America. They do understand their obligation to the constitution. And not to. Trump specifically or any ideology for that matter so I think in a way. This was anticlimactic. The best feature of the week was general mealy who really explained what the obligation of the military is. That should have been the address to West, point. That would have been a speech worth given and last, but certainly not least tour senior enlisted as he likes to keep referring to Himself Malcolm Nance. Going forward, what do we need to see? Happen Right now. Given the debate that is raging on in this country from the military leadership in this country from these young cadets. They assume their new roles. I don't think they need to do anything going forward other than doing what they're doing now. And that's maintaining the honor and the dignity. The Armed Forces staying out of politics as General Milley had made clear. Carrying, out their duty so long as they understand unlawful orders to take to the streets and put bayonets towards American, citizens are just that they have an obligation to disobey unlawful orders, just as they have an obligation to obey all lawful orders one last thing about the confederate flags. There is a place for confederate flags for on US military basis there right alongside the captured flags of Isis Al Qaeda the North Vietnamese and the Nazis. Those flags need to be in a museum showing the spoils of battle against these traders, every base needs to be renamed there. Lots of great members of the Armed Forces. Airman Chapman Starting Chapman who has lost in Afghanistan change AP Hill to his name Fort Bragg change it to. Four Gavin to great airborne commander, who jumped in World War Two jumping Jim Gavin. These need to change. This heritage needs to go away. I want to thank all of you for joining US incredible panel Malcolm. Nance Colonel Jack Jacobs Jennifer Rubin Congressman Ted, Lieu and Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson. Thank you all for joining us this morning on this very important day. Appreciate your time. And coming up a late night tweet trump postponed his campaign rally in Tulsa. We're going to bring you the very latest.

"Give me your take on that you're a member of one of the institutions in this country that upholds the democracy in this country. This is a president who seemingly almost attacks every institution. We have in this country at least changing the norms of many of these institutions. That's correct Let me I again. Congratulate the new officers of the United, states. And we honor them for the upcoming service. Now. In terms of your question, I thought Donald. Trump was fine at reading. The teleprompter glad stuck to a script although I did think the speech was rather long. Somewhat warring in regards that specific phrase. The president himself has not lived up to it. He repeatedly attacked the US Constitution packs are. Judiciary attacks free press he goes after democratic institutions, and that's why it's so important that we have a congress that is trying to hold him accountable very pleased that last term revolvers flip the house and then this November. Voters have a chance to vote again nationwide elections. And Malcolm Nance I want to give you a chance as well to respond both to. The president there. Roasting. Roasting the fact that Navy lost. The commander-in-chief Cup to army for the last two years I know you're a member of the Navy I'll give you a chance to respond to that, but more importantly more importantly. Give me your chance. Give me your reaction to the speech and what you made of it. Okay first off I. Guess he forgot that Navy broke that record again and is now one. Like, Donald, trump he just makes us own reality. Look that speech let me speak again as senior enlisted here because you have a fine ward room assembled. That speech was dull as dishwater. I mean it was like a fifth graders. Memorial Day speech from the front of a stage in front of the parents. All it was was a series of platitudes places. He's never he's never learned about. You know he couldn't say you know pointe-du-hoc where the Rangers scaled the walls off Normandy, it's just rangers going up cliffs in Normandy. He doesn't know anything about the Pacific. WAR AND DOUGLAS MACARTHUR AND THE BATTLE IN A. Retake the Philippines or tower, while or Iwo Jima. Any we talk or any of those things. My Dad was fifteen when he served in the Pacific in one, thousand, nine, hundred forty four donald trump, even speaking those words at this is a dishonor to him, but finally he really doesn't seem to understand that this is not. A set piece for his advertisement, which is you're not going to hear word out of him in his at you're just gonNa see videos of him saluting soldiers in standing there and looking presidential and receiving a copy of the auto out very sward look Barack. Obama did this way better. There was nothing to remember from the speech. There was very little for the service members to take away from it great. We have hypersonic. Missiles Sodas Russia and China. I'm just glad it's over. Colonel Jacobs Malcolm I appreciate that and we always appreciate your insights. Let, me Colonel Jacobs. Bring you into this conversation for a moment. I WanNa just square square this point a reminder viewers. The cadets were brought back to attend this graduation, so the president can deliver this speech. Do you think now that you have heard that speech and not to take anything away from those that were graduating, but the fact that their families are there and they're watching this from home. Do you think that's beach was worth what we just witnessed? Well even if it was worth it, we could. Always, we could always. Watch it on television. In any case, it didn't have to bring. All cadets back so. No No I'll I'll do a little riff on Malcolm's observation it. Not only was dull and platitudinous. It seem twice as or three times as long as it really was. And without trying too hard to make ad Hominem Castigation 's. Despite having years and years of practice president trump still can't read. A teleprompter is just even if it were were a good speech, which was not. The delivery just absolutely impossible I would. If we got a minute a minute, I'd like to bring up thing he mentioned which is which is worth reiterating. And discussing very briefly, he made a very sharp distinction between. Mounting conventional operations against hostile forces on the one hand. And and and rebuilding countries are building. Countries are building infrastructures and defense capabilities of friends and allies and so on. We should not make that distinction to a greater or lesser extent, if we WANNA, be safe. One of the things we have to do is to make sure that our friends and allies are capable of defending themselves and you can't do that just with. With aircraft carriers and and and missiles that are really really accurate, so we can't. We can't divorce. Building, the capability of friends and allies with the Defensive Our republic. Colonel Wilkerson. I want to give you the final word on this subject when you kind of look back at whether or not, this was worth to bring these cadets, these eleven hundred cadets back to ten this graduating ceremony, so this president would have his opportunity to speak to them the message that he delivered today from your opinion. Was it worth it? Not at all. I'm glad the. Brought that up The real tragedy of this experience is just what. Intimated in what you send to me and that is that we did it at all the way we did it. This is in defiance of most of the medical advice that is coming into the administration. It's in defiance of our epidemiologists at the National Task Force for lecturing crises. Who briefed US the other day that we are in for a second wave? That is probably GonNa make the I looked calm. If that's the case, then we're doing things right now to exacerbate deepen and make more profound that cycle way, and this was just an illustration from the president of the United States, using the military academy as a political prop of that very thing. That's the saddest thing about this in in my estimation. Congressman Lewis, if I can get your thoughts here as well as we kind of wind this conversation down, but do you think over the last couple of weeks that we've seen the way? The president has used the military that staging of that photo about outside of Saint John's church the apology from. Mark Milley the rejection of the use of the Insurrection Act by the defense secretary. has this president undermined the standing of the American military? Donald Trump has undermined himself. Our military remains great because our personnel understand that they took an oath to the constitution, not to Donald Trump, and when we see Donald Trump now embracing confederate images and symbols, beverly rubs a lot of people that wrong way, and by the way all these images are seeing at West, point. This is a union army we want. We should not have army base named after traders and losers, and I hope that the Pentagon now reverses decision, and has the OB wide ban on confederate flags. Navy and Marines I've done it..

"Com click contacts let corrections and build us a compliment sandwich. We will get it right eventually with that. Let's get to the news with just the facts so we had another big week in the Miller investigation with the sentencing hearing of weird steam punk Carney Swinger Roger Stone No shame to any of those things. Amy Berman. Who We've come to know his judge Jackson. If you're nasty had a weighty if not seemingly impossible job. She had three different sentencing recommendations to from the Department of Justice and one from stones legal team. We know the story of the department's recommendations the I was seven to nine years which comprised of the sentencing guidelines plus an eight point upward variants for making violent threats against the witness was the subject of intimidation felony the second DOJ recommendation read like it had been written by a five year old. No offense to five year olds and called for much less stones legal team they were asking for only probation. No jail time so judge. Jackson was in a precarious place if she's sentenced him too harshly. The right-wing dill bags would have had a scream fest on judge box of wine. Janine Pirro show and if she was too lenient it would look like she had succumb to the pressure. She felt from the Attorney General. She didn't feel but that came from the attorney. General and trump apart from those variables. She had to hand down a sentence that would punish stone shitting over the rule of law in the face of a nation about to lose its rule of law status. If we haven't already I think we have after. New Prosecutor stood up surprisingly defending the original sentencing. Memo from the four prosecutors withdrew from the case in protest and that was also signed by the freshly installed Bar Patsy at the US Attorney's Office in D. C. She said Judge Berman Jackson said unsurprisingly. I have a lot to say but before we get to her greatest hits and it's important to note that the new prosecutor had some astonishing things to say on behalf of the of the old prosecutors including telling Judge Jackson that the prosecutors were right and I'm sorry for the top level interference and admitting it was basically a bunch of bullshit. And please just go by the first correct sentencing memorandum and. We're super sorry. So this makes me feel like if they were going to put people in that we're GonNa say something like that and supported the previous prosecutors. The only reason they wanted them out was to retaliate against them for being supporters of or being involved in the Mueller investigation. It could have been a plot to get him out. Yeah to get non trump loyalists to resign right. Because I guess maybe these people I don't know they don't that doesn't seem very trump loyalist. So why not at all right? So why would they? Why would they replace them with him? I don't know the behind. The scenes story. Thought he would go in go in and support the Bar Memo but refused to when he was faced with a judge like. I can't do this to a judge my candor and my candidacy candidacy with the court My candidness my candidacy can't be I won't put it at risk. So here's what she had to say At trial the defense Does your quotes at trial. The defense appropriately questioned Randy criticos credibility and Rick Gates is credibility but it was largely stones own emails in his own texts. That proved the allegations beyond a reasonable doubt. So what did the defense say to the jury on his behalf? So what? So what of all the circumstances in this case this may be the most pernicious the truth still exists? The true still matters Roger Stone's insistence that it doesn't his belligerence. His pride in his own lies are a threat to our most fundamental institutions to the very foundation of our democracy. And if it goes unpunished it will not be a victory for one party or another. Everyone loses because everyone depends on the representatives. They elect to make the right decisions on a myriad of issues many of which are politically charged but many of which aren't based on the facts. Everyone depends on our elected representatives to protect our elections from foreign interference based on the facts. No one knows where the threat is going to come from. Next time or whose side they'll be on and for that reason the dismay disgust at the defendant's belligerence should transcend party the dismayed I thought that was pretty strongly worded. She also said the dismay discussed at the attempts by others to defend his actions are just business as usual in our polarized climate and that should transcend party. The dismay discussed with any attempts to interfere with the efforts of prosecutors and members of the judiciary to fulfill their duty should transcend party. Sure the defense is free to say so what who cares. But I'll say this congress cared the United States Department of Justice in the United States Attorney's office in the District of Columbia that prosecuted this case and is still prosecuting. This case cared the jurors who served with integrity. Under difficult circumstances cared. The American people cared and I CARE. chills. I didn't even know judges. Ever got that political or political sounding transcending writer right. But it's but it's still a very like moral moral appeal. It is yeah decency and the next part she tears into trump bar without naming them specifically. She says this case also exemplifies why it is that this system for good reason demands that the responsibility falls to someone neutral someone whose job may involve issuing opinions in favor of and against the same administration in the same week and not someone who has a long standing friendship with the defendant trump not someone whose political career was aided by the defendant trump and surely not anyone who has a personal involvement in the events underlying the case trump The court cannot be influenced by those comments. They were entirely inappropriate. But I will not hold them against the defendant either So she didn't say the word trump my of course pointing out who she's talking about and that she's not going to hold what trump did against on she said it would be equally improper buffeted by the winds of blowing from the left the enthusiastic callers who object to what the defendant stands for. I cannot and will not sentence him for the behavior of those he supports. Sentencing is personal. And it's based on the evidence. She then brought it home saying I have received letters urging me not to silence and important voice in the public arena men. That will not be an element of this sentence. In any way I expect he will keep talking. And as you've just heard when I went through the elements of the offense. He was not convicted and not as not being sentenced for exercising. His First Amendment rights his support of the President's campaign or his policies he was not prosecuted as some have complained for standing up for the president. He was prosecuted for covering up for the president bloom. She then sentenced him to forty months on count. One twelve months on counts two through six eighteen months on count. Seven to be served concurrently So he got seven months but he only has to serve forty because he's serving all three of those at the same time and forty is the longest of the three. That's heavy goes to prison. And she still weighing emotion from stone for a retrial based on what he thinks his a biased juror who turned out to be the foreperson of the jury and then Saturday Roger. Stone's team filed another motion asking the court to Remove Judge Jackson from the case saying she is biased because she stood up for the integrity of the biased. Jury is sincerely doubt. Either of those motions will carry. However we'll see how this plays out that's it that's the Roger Stone case. How long do you think trump will take part in him He said he's not going to do it now. trump has said. He thinks stone will be exonerated meaning. Trump feels that the appeals. She'll be voted off the case or that. He knew that she was gonNA. He was GONNA file a motion to boot her off the case or he thinks that he'll be exonerated in a retrial. Right now he tweeted in support of that retrial. And we'll probably when do you? Do you have any idea when we would know if no and my fear? My fear is that the the trump White House advise Roger Stone to file the motion to have the judge Judge Jackson removed from the case. And that he's got it set up somewhere that she will be. This is what I'm really terrified to see going into November. He is either going to choose to take that time leading up to the election to stay away from crime ing or he's going to take that opportunity to double down on cramming and if he can get elected because in two thousand sixteen he got elected trying to shove the climbing under the bed. Uh-huh if he gets elected in twenty twenty openly talking about it and doing it like that and making it a thing. That's incredibly you. Know out there for all to see and he gets elected on that. That is like So much worse than twenty sixteen. Yep Yeah totally agree with you and we have a lot of that in the hot notes and with our interview with Malcolm Nance later so stick around. We'll be right back after this message with more. Russian interference stay with us. Hey everybody it's ag in this episode of militia wrote is brought to you by Beta brand..

"Forgive me partying with Wendi leading and the wife of a Russian oligarch there there is a class of people and half that kind of money and then there's the class of people that wants is to be in that class of money and this money you know I mean just think back to the robber baron periods of the Carnegie's and you know the people who there are only a few of them in the world and the trump's desperately wanna do that be in that group and the Presidency Agency of the United States is a stepping stone because that does not get you into that group that gets you near them. Yeah and and and that's why I outlined all the chapters that show their ties. These people are all willing to compromise. US National Security and Financial Security Collection Security. They don't care about this country they just care about the money this country represents now. I do want to ask you about Syria. Because the Ukraine's James Gamble is sorta overshadowed everything that happened there recently. But we've gotten very little in the way of a rational explanation from the White House for Donald Trump's sudden sudden decision to pull out of northern Syria. What do you think trump did that? And do you see the hand of Vladimir Putin behind that as well you know I'm GonNa go back a little while while and show you a chain of events. You know one of the things that I try to explain to people is They ask how. How do you get these books out so fast? How were you years ahead of everybody? Yeah because I am not a journalist. Okay even though I play one on television I'm actually a a political. A national security analyst than an intelligence is analysts right and as a former intelligence collector in in in officer. My job was to analyze analyze very dangerous situations from the ground up. 'cause I was enlisted which means I was the guy who actually had to collect the data that would go to the white in house you know from the field and I could see those patterns much much more quickly than you know. The news media could because I had raw stolen spy data right and we have to analyze it ourselves in a room. You know on a collection site to determine right away way if it's a threat to the United States and then we would report that up the chain of command journalists. Don't have that. And they also don't have the depth of twenty years of intelligence experience starting in the Cold War where I could go to any Middle East country and see the KGB and so they would go by reporting interviews analysis and that would give them a body of knowledge but it wasn't allowed into their reporting right. That's journalism lissome. Okay so I had the ability to move faster but let me explain the Syria part team way. Back in in twenty sixteen the Russia and Turkey had had an air engagement over the Syrian Turkish border and a Russian fighter. Jet was shot down by Turkey in two months later the foreign minister of Russia shows up in Istanbul has a quiet meeting with Irwin. Earn Awan instantly announces announces that they were going to make stronger ties with Russia. And then they repaid Russia for the loss of their fighter. Jet within a month. A coup d'etat. Tall was thrown in Turkey and earn. Awan takes deeper. Deeper power eliminates all his political enemies. Guts the armed forces of anyone who believed in the old editor government. The secular government creates a hardcore political Islam as a political party party in that country and then suddenly aligns himself with Moscow in the sense that they are now allowing Russian operations nations on their border. They are working themselves. More in alignment with Russia in their occupation of Syria. He does has less objections to the bus. Shara Las Government Vermont and then the United States starts carrying out operations with the Kurds. They defeat Isis in a two year offensive. And you have to remember. Something's things Turkey. Is the country where Isis was allowed to enter and transit over to Syria round every airliner. Wow Turkeys the country. That took a million Syrian anti-government refugees and allowed them to buy life preservers that were essentially pieces of Styrofoam Foam and get into these rickety boats that were made by took Turkish manufacturers by the hundreds of thousands and allow them to try. Try to go to Greece and let them die by the thousands on the ocean that all originated in Turkey. These events showed that Turkey. He was making an enormous quantity of money off of Isis. All of their elicit oil sales deteriorate went to Turkey all of their goal that they had minted in their or coins that were minted in the Caliph. It were minted in Turkey they had. They had isis backed groups operating in Turkey at the border and and the Turks didn't do very much about that but when Isis collapsed Turkey suddenly saw the number one enemy was the Kurds who are or fighting with the United States Special Operations forces the same Kurds who that the Russians would send a mercenary group to try to seize their oilfields that Donald Trump is now defending. Wow and that who we slaughtered two hundred and fifty Russian mercenaries because we had twelve special forces and radio so that shows our combat power. This is the same Kurds that donald trump on a flash after one phone call with Decided he would abandon knowing that the Turkish forces would come down sees the corridor. which is their main lifeline to Iraqi Kurdistan and and then start an operation to wipe them off the face of the earth that it that interests benefits Turkey at benefits the Assad government and it automatically the United States turned over all of our basis to Russia in a as a longtime intelligence guy? WanNa ask you. Republicans like Senator Rand Paul of floated the idea of outing the CIA whistleblower. Don Jr. supposedly did expose the alleged whistle blower who he believes to be the allege whistleblower. Do you think that they're putting that person's life at risk and what kind of obligation does the CIA have to protect that person. Well first off. The whoever the officer was whether it's a a man or woman they were not working in a covert status which means they were not part of the clandestine service and they were not having their identity eighty protected as a part of their natural daily duties It is a crime to out a CIA officer. WHO's in the clandestine service? Yes but we don't know the status of this individual because he's protected he or she is protected under whistleblower statutes which say that you cannot name that person look. You're working in an office building. There's only so many. CIA officers who have been assigned to you. You're pretty much going to be able to eliminate number one two and three that were on on the phone call if there was just one. It's easy what they're doing is allowing their surrogates like Donald trump junior and fox news or like today the Washington examiner. Her and Don't Joe Digenova just published a name and started calling him a more dangerous person the in the assassin who killed old Abraham Lincoln. Wow the intent is to intimidate that person. If not incite the death of that person and I am look. I am far too old old in far too jaded to realize to to not recognize a mortal threat when I hear one the CIA does not have an obligation allegation legally to defend this person but the FBI does the local police force it. Does you know though if he lives in northern Virginia or if he lives in the you know the the town of Langley they have an obligation but so does everyone who swore an oath to defend and protect the constitution of the United. I need states. And we see that betrayal occurring on a minute to minute basis of people who say that they are United States senators and US congressman. And if I had my my way I would move for immediate censure of Rand Paul or any congressman within Congress. Who outs this person or threatened out that? Yeah we've got to protect that person will before we go. I absolutely have to ask you about Hillary Clinton's assertion that congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is herself concussion. Asset have you seen any evidence that this might be the case and if so is she an unwitting asset or is she a willing asset well first off. Hillary Clinton never mentioned engine Tulsi Gabbard as an asset at all really only mentioned Jill Stein. And there's a lot of evidence to show that Jill Stein when from her first meeting when she went to have dinner with Vladimir Ear Putin where she Her platform was vote. You know allow trump to become president and let him tear down. Government in the Green Party party will rise into that space and also You know her the Green Party ignoring this is one of my favorite things ignoring the plea from the Russian Green Party that they were being manipulated by Moscow and not not to work for in Putin's interest by getting trump elected. I mean Hillary Clinton has got to remember something she is cleared food for intelligence still very advanced intelligence and at the time that she was a candidate she was getting read into the exact same encountered intelligence elegance information. Donald Trump was about what Russia was doing in the United States. So as a former secretary of state who had the same security clearances the president of the United States. She has a depth of knowledge that could would inform her opinion about what she thought about other candidates much much as I recall she never mentioned Tulsi Gabbard by name. I think it's telling that Tulsi Gabbard immense instantly jumped up and felt offended. I I am certainly not a supporter of MS gathered. I you know her positions are bizarre. She only appears on on Fox News. She seems to defend herself using pro-moscow pro trump talking points I think she's auditioning for a position on the trump cabinet. The question is is she a Russian asset if she is which I don't assert that she is. I think she's just in the useful idiot mode right now now in fact if anything she if she's working for Donald Trump in the Republican party in her commentary then that moves her to the unwitting asset set. Because we've seen winning assets in this government either way it's scary will once again Malcolm Nance. His book is called the plot to betray America America. How team trump embraced our enemies? Compromised our security and how we can fix it Malcolm. Thanks for talking with me. It's been my pleasure..

"He is globally recognized intelligence community member and a counter terrorism analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. And now now he's out with his latest book. The plot to betray America. How team trump embraced our enemies compromised our security and how we can fix it? Malcolm Com welcome back to the show. I'm very happy to be here. Will Malcolm you're the first person in the US media to identify the Russian attack on the two thousand sixteen election as a foreign intelligence operation. And you've been banging that drum ever since when the mother report finally came out earlier this year were you surprised by the conclusions Jans or perhaps lack of conclusions in there. I wasn't surprised by the conclusion. Certainly in section one of the report which is the bulk of the report. Because I'd pretty much written three books. A plot to hack America the plot to destroy democracy and had finalized the plot to betray America. And what I they had done was precisely what later. US journalist would come out and find and and what the Senate intelligence reports would find is is that the Russia did carry out indeed an attack on the United States using information warfare assets in order to influence the American population and choose a individual Donald J trump as president of the United States. So it was no surprise to me that those findings where they're some some of the findings within the Miller report clearly showed that they went out of their way to pull their punches and not to find people Guilty of of crimes that were pretty clearly in plain sight Certainly things that neither you or I would be allowed to get away with Mike. Ignorance of the law. Aw and the report as you mentioned. Couldn't link the campaign's involvement with Russia directly to Donald Trump and of course attorney general Bill Barr released his famous memo uh-huh quote Unquote Exonerating Donald trump any direct collusion or coordination with Russia. You don't seem to be very convinced by that. Why not well? I'm certainly not convinced Vince. Because as we've learned two weeks after bar put out that famous memo that that turned out to be a lie that the the Muller reported itself showed that Russia did this for the benefit of Donald Trump and also identified that donald trump and his campaign were well aware that Russia was was doing this for their benefit and sought to benefit from their activities. What the Miller report didn't identify couldn't identify was was the individuals who were the links to the donald trump campaign and Russia and as they sat on page two of the report because the Muller team found on that individuals were not available or not made available? One of the most noteworthy is Constantine Kalinic. Constantine Kalinic was believed to be a A who is a former Russian intelligence officer and believed to have been associated with Russian intelligence In the report they said they could and not gain access to him. He left the left. The Western world went back to Russia And in fact he was the person who passed on the polling data From Paul Manafort to the Russian Oligarch Oleg Darrow Pasta and there are suspicions that that polling data was used to influence character to sharpen sharpen the Russian intelligence influence operation. Interestingly enough he comes back in the current impeachment campaign that we're we're hearing because Really Guiliani Is asserting that it was not Russia. Who hacked the United States? But in fact came up with a fantastical Haskell story that it was in fact the pro American or pro western Pro European Union pro-nato government of Ukraine who was doing it to discredit the pro-moscow part of Ukraine right and that they hacked the Democratic National Committee and not the Russian military intelligence elegance agency or the Russian intelligence Clandestine Service that the United States and every other intelligence agency in the Western world has agreed read upon because we have their fingerprints. That story came from. Constantine column. Nick to Rudy Giuliani interesting. And I think thank you reveal that there's also a manafort connection in terms of the source of this conspiracy theory that trump's embraced. Yes that's absolutely right and what listeners should understand is when you think of the word Ukraine you should think of two different parts of Ukraine Paul Manafort in the in the early early nineteen in the early twenties You know around twenty twelve twenty. Thirteen was working in Ukraine. As part of his dirty tricks you know the attorneys You know manafort stone in black you know. A company called the The dictators Lami and he he was working for the Pro Moscow Government of unique of which that government was corrupt and it was not only corrupt. It was overthrown own in a popular uprising called the Madang Movement. The may uprising which pushed him out of power forced him to jump onto a jet and go back to Russia when they went through all of his political parties offices. They found a black folder. A black book they called it which showed hanwritten campaign name. I'm sorry not campaign. But the hand written bribes and funds played paid to lobbyists and dirty tricksters. He's in there was Paul Manafort's name showing that he may have collected as much as seventy million dollars You know And that money is what he was convicted for in his money laundering case he was keeping offshore in Cyprus and he was bringing it to the United United States through a series of You know a series of illegal maneuvers. Because all of that money was black money. It was dirty dirty dirty money that was taken from this. This government this whole campaign between Kalinic and now Rudy Giuliani. Trying Brian to say even that folder showing Manafort was bribed or paid for all of his dirty tricks in Ukraine and the and in twenty around twenty twelve to two thousand fourteen that that is all fake that everything we we know about. Paul Manafort is all been rigged against him and in fact he asserts Giuliani that the democratic like National Committee servers were hacked by the pro. NATO Pro European Union government of Ukraine and that a- all of this that Russia and the pro-moscow Ukrainians and Paul Manafort are all innocent of everything that they've been accused of Donald Trump has bought into this conspiracy theory and believes that that is the truth about about the hacking of the two thousand sixteen election. Which of course gets Vladimir Putin off the yeah so I mean in absolves Russia Russia of everything so trump can go out and open? You know whatever is going on in his mind whether he wants to open relations or lift sanctions on the richest oligarchs but he is clearly proving himself beholden to them to the point of utter obsequiousness. And for your listeners. Christner's that means slavish devotion. Yeah that's interesting so you think that trump's embrace of these wild conspiracy theories of Ukrainian involvement in the election Shen and corruption involving the Biden's and Ukraine might also be a way of giving him cover an excuse to back away from supporting Ukraine and adopt a more pro-russia policy. Well he has a very pro Russia policy even though some of the things that he claims his administration has done against Russia. We're actually congress. The doing them against Russia and in the Defense Department just carrying out it's an actual duties in the defense of the United States. He has never backed off of supporting porting Russia and so by embracing this conspiracy theory that the DNC Server was actually hacked by the pro. NATO Oh Ukrainian government it completely. Let's Moscow off the hook for attacking the United States. And as I said we have of. We're not bad when it comes to this level of intelligence and trust me I worked at the National Security Agency. If it's electron Eq we we can track it and we can use it. We're good when it comes to that and tracking advanced persistent threat twenty-eight in advanced persistent entr twenty nine known as cozy bear and fancy bear Cyber malware suites that were used to attack. The United States was not very hard word because the United States government the the White House the Pentagon civilians and other agencies had been attacked by these Russian entities is that belong to the Military Intelligence Directorate and the Russian Clandestine Service. They had been attacked many times before so we knew their digital fingerprints but Russia also didn't know that we were in their actual building where these activities were occurring using a NATO ally and we were literally federally watching their intelligence officers log into their secure workspace and then log into their computers so the digital fingerprints in the you know the the actual visual are extrordinary but Donald Trump. Of course you know. He doesn't believe intelligence so he doesn't believe that any of this happened. All he is doing is trying to get rush off the hook and it conveniently helps his in his mind. He thinks this helps his case. His impeachment inquiry yeah it's laughable. If it wasn't so sad well the other thing that I have to wonder is what Rudy Giuliani. Get Out of all this. I mean at this this stage in his career. Why would you take just such an idiotic risk and sign up to be trump's bag man for this quid pro quo with Ukraine? You Know I. I analyse the Republican Party in Giuliani and all of trump's other henchmen into different chapters. One there are the the dirty tricks teams. And these are the Roger. Stone's the Paul Manafort's the Mike Flynn's Jeff sessions people who thought that they were when they won they won because they were you know pure of heart and stronger of soul and that they were or indeed the masters of the universe and that there is nothing that they couldn't do once they took over power which you know lying no problem. FBI monitoring my secret communications to the Kremlin. They wouldn't dare investigate us. Because we're you know aligning ourselves with foreign powers Saudi Arabia and Qatar. And you know selling weapons systems the autocratic Turkey. No one will look into it because we own the universe this this is where they made a mistake. Paw you know Rudy Giuliani. I think is a hard core true believer that all of his previous estimations of trump were wrong and that you know his friendship with trump has put him in a place where he is aligned with what trump supporters believe is the greatest president in American history and Donald Trump. said that a you know. I'm a scholar of of of history and military history and I am a huge fan of George Washington and for an African Americans say that. That's something unusually big Lincoln fans by George. Washington was truly an extraordinary man and to say that you are better president than George Washington who set all the norms all the standards and all the paces shows a level of of. You know mental pathology. That were requires you know a second third. Look Yeah and your book also really describes as you kind of touched on a moment ago this Motley Group of characters that trump relies on including washed opera spiring political hacks shady business associates and various other random third parties. I have to wonder with all the resources at his disposal. Why why doesn't trump do things through the normal channels? He's well because he's played his game on the New York stock on the New York Real Estate Martin and he you know this is why he got rid of all principles and he is getting rid of all the principals and his cabinet He prefers deputies because he wants latkes. He's and gophers. And the way that you describe that you know as I wrote it in the book the best way to describe it as a motley collection of Griff Thor's liars and thieves and including Rudy Giuliani. Which takes me back to your previous question? I want to answer that really quickly Giuliani. I suspect really truly. He believes that Donald Trump is going to be the greatest president in history because he drinks the same kool aid as the people who he sees it rallies and they think at these rallies is our America you know and we all know that Donald Trump is ruling for forty percent of America. Not It's not the other sixty percent and that's that masters of the universe you know tribalist attitude of we will always be the dominant in tribe and the rest of you will dance to our tune and I refer to this as not that. The United States in their estimation isn't a constitutional republic. It's a constitutional autocracy in which they keep the trappings and the you know the paper of the Constitution in front of view but in fact they themselves are ruling as autocrats and Giuliani. Has You know if you remember Giuliani time right. During his period of New York City Cherry was pretty much an autocrat right and I think he has tied himself to trump and I think he's a true believer that believes Donald. Trump is the greatest president in American history. And you know what's worse. I have a prediction that he will be the first president of the United States who will have a black shroud over his portrait. That would be pretty dark. I'm curious the withholding of military assistance to Ukraine rain has been framed as a threat to US national security for anyone who might not be that well versed in the politics of that region..

Trump re-election campaign targeted by Iran-linked hackers

Trump re-election campaign targeted by Iran-linked hackers

"Our committee issued a report in insight on saying that Russian active measures are growing with frequency and intensity and these groups pose a significant threat to the United States and our allies in upcoming elections. Would you agree with that in fact one of the areas that we have to look at it and many more companies companies many more countries are developing capability to replicate what the Russians had done the New York Times reports that indeed Iranian hackers have targeted the trump reelection campaign quote Microsoft said hackers with apparent backing from Iran's government had made more than twenty seven hundred attempts to identify the email accounts of current and former United States government officials journalists covering political campaigns lanes and accounts associated with the presidential campaign. It was not clear what information if any had been taken in the attack on the trump campaign tonight the campaign says has it has no indication that any infrastructure was hit with US tonight the man to see on these matters Malcolm Nance he's a veteran of naval intelligence special OPS and homeland security with thirty five years working in counterterrorism and intelligence and is our analyst in this area his forthcoming book one of many relevant to this discussion is the plot to betray America. How team trump embraced our enemies compromised our security and how we can fix it Malcolm. What is the lesson in this lesson in this is that the two thousand sixteen election opened the floodgates for all types of non-state and state actors to try to influence the United States elections and with the president and many of his followers not believing that there is an intrinsic Nick cyberthreat in this world that will attempt to influence our electoral process. Everyone's going to dry so a sub lesson of that. I'm guessing assing in a democracy when we have a boisterous debate on this or any other network and Moscow Mitch is a name that is hatched because the Senate majority leader's unwillingness for the longest time to get funding approved to harden our elections people can hear us when when we say that people can see our coverage in a free society in a as they say a malign actor would be foolish not to try it ten years ago. The United States had a mindset in which the defense of the nation on all sides sides was paramount and that no one would ever be allowed to come after the United States on any platform anywhere in the world even if we weren't the greatest greatest and cyber cyber hygiene that has since changed and as you say the world can hear us when the world believes the United States will no no longer defend itself you know malignant players such as Iran North Korea China you know could be anybody as far away as Zimbabwe understands that America's information sphere can be weaponized against itself and that you can go after individuals or organizations or entire countries and have the ability to change their mindset or to hack their mindset so apparently Iran is touching base on this and are trying to get the basic steps to rudimentary hack certain people or individuals around around the campaign and perhaps influence it or carry out a false flag operation making it look like someone else's trying to influence. Dan Coats once said and I'll paraphrase phrase that what kept him up at night was the rumored Russian ability to turn off the power in New England in the middle of of winter. Tell the folks watching. Chang tonight at the risk of scaring them to death before bet on a Friday evening. How bad could it get. What could someone do it could get very bad and granted this report in The New York Times about very rudimentary things right about spearfishing people clicking on the wrong Lincoln downloading malware into their computer but that's the first step in going after turning off. Oh a hydroelectric plant or shorting out a substation and plunging a million people into darkness. These are infrastructure attacks which are very hard to do because we have such a large civilian infrastructure which is not protected at a governmental level the way many other countries around the world are so you know when you turn off power. You kill people respirators. Go off until the batteries come on or a generators. Come on. It can be very difficult. People lose their air conditioning so these are the sort of things that are the far far end of the black operations and cyber warfare. Iran for example destroyed every computer in Aramco the Saudi Arabian Oil Company a few years ago using malicious malware and knocking down their systems that was not as bad as if they say shut off Wichita Talk Kansas from having any electricity all of these are within the realm of that and if we are not defending ourselves our opponents will figure out ways as to use it.

Trump says white nationalism is not a rising threat

"More details. Have emerged since the terrorist attack in New Zealand in which Australia national opened fire inside two months during Friday prayers in Christ Church, killing forty nine people and injuring dozens more in his apparent manifesto, the killer made it clear that he carried out the attack in the name of white supremacy and praised Donald Trump as a quote symbol of renewed white identity. And common purpose. Trump did condemn the violence which is supposed to do as president. But he refused to admit what everyone else can see the explosion of far, right? White nationalist extremism at home and abroad. White nationalist rising threat around the world. I don't really I think it's a small group of people that have very very serious problems. I guess if you look at what happened in New Zealand for half sets a case, I don't know enough about it yet. They're just learning about the person and the people, but it's certainly a terrible thing. Terrible thing Trump's bland response to the slaughter of Muslim men women and children in New Zealand early. Reminiscent of his remarks after an outbreak of white nationalist violence here in the US. Very big that group, but you also had people that were very fine. People on both sides to me now to discuss is Malcolm Nance MSNBC contributor, author of the plot to destroy democracy. Dahlia Moga director of research for the institute of social policy and understanding and Brian Levin director of the center for the study of hate and extremism at California State University. Thank you from me here, Malcolm the inability of people to just identify this terrorism because it isn't what we typically identifies terrorism. Why is it so difficult for people to just make that straight on equivalents when it's white nationalism because we have now been conditioned since nine eleven to believe that terrorists only come in one flavor, and that's Muslim extremists from the Middle East where people in the United States who have been radicalized online, and they can only be Muslim. This is a huge fallacy, I trained law enforcement and intelligence all the time in this country. And I constantly warn them the. I people that will go to guns with you are going to be a white extremist militiamen posse Comitatus person in the United States. They are armed. They are motivated, and they have a history that goes back decades in this country. They are a threat that act in New Zealand was a terrorist attack. It was designed to impact an audience beyond the victims and show an ideology as viable, and that is this white supremacist Internationale that appear it doesn't appear it exist fall throughout Europe. And Charlottesville was the coming out party for that type of extremism in the United States. One of the thing that made. This particularly scary is that you have this merger now and a lot of different ways of social media, which which can be used to radicalize people. But also now we're learning to spread the the mayhem. This was live streamed by this Jared. It was livestream because he wanted to also show his added here in. And you know, people who are out there who could be radicalized by this that this is how it's done. It was a message not just to the greater world in general and to put fear into the hearts of the Muslim world, which is what it was about. But it was also really to people were saying this was trolling some of the things that he put out in his manifesto. This was a message to what he calls the greater white community to stop the invasion of the Muslim hordes into what he claims is the white world white Christian. And that's where we have this problem. Social media is a weapon system now, and like ISIS, I've written a whole book about ISIS ideological propaganda.

I believe he does not believe in the oath, and there's very little evidence that he believes in the constitution and I, at the end of the day, the FBI is out defending this nation. The special prosecutor has an overwhelming amount of evidence that he has to go through as well as intelligence from the intelligence communities. And you know, his whole pass is now on the block. So we will have Rigo level. No investigations going at this point, but did Donald Trump work actively and openly with hostile intelligence agency or foreign power to get himself elected president. I will leave that up to the special counsel to answer, but you know, I would not get comfortable in the Oval Office seat for long if that turns out to be true, even the most recalcitrant Republican, if this is even marginally true will have to run away from him very intriguing stuff. Again, the book is called the plot to destroy democracy, how Putin and his spies are undermining America and dismantling the west. Malcolm Nance. Thanks for talking with me. It's my pleasure.

"Malcolm nance veteran of naval intelligence special ops homeland security thirty five years experience working in counterterrorism and intel also happens to be the author of the plot to hack america how putin cyber spies and wikileaks tried to steal the 2016 election so malcolm how and where does it strike you when you hear all of that when you hear our president call this spy gate well i find it very ironic that he would actually choose that term besides the the knowledge that we need to give out to the patriots by using the term spy gate it appears that he's carrying out a massive projection by trying to take this innocuous use of an informant by the fbi which is very common and can flayed it into the exact scandal that is surrounding his campaign in fact i think we ought to take the term back i think we should use the term spy gate to be quite honest spy gate technically describes the russian spies who were possibly in conspiracy with members of the trump campaign in order to steal an election and subvert american democracy that's the real spy gate that's why i wanna play you the following this is james clapper appearing on pbs today this is the former director of national intelligence and the allegation he makes now about twenty sixteen we'll talk about it on the other side since i left the government though as a private citizen it's my what i would call my informed opinion that to given the massive effort the russians made in the number of citizens that they touched and the variety in the multidimensional aspects of of what they did to to influence opinion affect the election and given the fact that it turned on less than eighty thousand votes in three states to me it just exceeds logic and credulity that they didn't affect the election and it's my belief they actually turned it they actually turned it that right there is ball game the one that trump doesn't wanna see or hear because that's speaks to the greater fear of illegitimacy of the election and i think he's terrified of the idea that the possibility that illegitimacy the belief that he is an illegitimate president.
