Judge Orders Release of DOJ Memo Justifying Not Prosecuting Trump
"Judge in dc ordered the justice department to release a document that they've been trying to keep secret for years. Now it's the document. The justice department drew up to justify not bringing criminal charges against then president donald trump for obstruction of justice. Judge amy berman jackson and her blistering ruling this week said that trump attorney general bill barr and other trump justice department officials had essentially lied to the public and lied to the court about bars decision. That trump wouldn't be prosecuted despite the muller investigation laying out more than ten potentially criminal instances in which the president acted to obstruct the investigation into russia. Interfering in the two thousand sixteen election to help trump win the presidency of the justice department is under very very very new management. It's going to be interesting to see if the justice department. Now under attorney-general merrick garland follows judge jackson's ruling and releases document about not prosecuting trump. Or will they appeal to continue the trump justice department's efforts to keep that documents secret. The clock is ticking. On that we've been watching this every day. Now because they've got less than two weeks to either file that appeal or let that document see the light of day and in either case it's to be a really big deal. If we do see that document and as the judge hinted in her ruling it turns out that bar and the trump justice department never substantively considered the evidence evidence against trump if it turns out the evidence that trump committed obstruction was just ignored. Well that puts a very hot potato. In the lap of the new justice department leadership under president biden as to whether they might pursue those charges against trump nail
MINEBRIDGE RAT Embedded to Look Like Job Resumes.
"Now we have been tracking this muller family for past couple of years And what was interesting in. This case was It was leveraging resume. Our jobs also related to couple other campaigns that we saw in some of the tdp's tactics techniques and procedures that the tractor used in this campaign matched what we saw early last year as well. Well let's dig into the research together here You start off with some thread attribution. Who do you think is likely behind this. So based on some of the techniques that we saw here we are attributing this with a moderate confidence to threat actor file fi which is a financially motivated threat group. That has been active since At least twenty fourteen. I now attribution is a you know. It's a difficult game because you know it's very easy to see overlap in infrastructure across different actors as well based on some of the things that we absurd. Are we feel like it's deify. Well let's walk through the attack flow together. How does someone find themselves Falling victim to this so if you look at the attached in it starts with a job resume document so it's a macro document that will prompt the victim to enable content which is to run the metro out if the victim falls for that back it up a pdf and show. The actual. i would say decoy profile of someone who's trying to apply for the job But in the back end what happens is The macro code will leverage Windows finger dot.

Matt Gaetz: Why Is He Being Investigated?
"Lots talk right now about florida. Representative matt gaetz. Why what is going on with matt. Gaetz matt gaetz seems to be in a lot of legal trouble is what's going on tonight. Florida congressman matt gates is defending himself amid reports. The justice department is investigating is alleged relationship with a seventeen year old girl. Investigators looking into the alleged relationship from two years ago whether gates possibly violated sex trafficking laws when he allegedly paid for travel and other expenses for the team all things. The republican strongly denies it as a horrible allegation and it is a lie. He's being investigated for payments. He may have allegedly made to women in exchange for sex in one case a woman who was under each seventeen years old in one sense. This is a pretty classic political sex scandal but the real reason it seems to have struck such a chord is that gates was one of the most bold outspoken defenders of former president donald trump who was of course plagued by scandal throughout his term in office gates was always there to say. Oh president trump was just being persecuted by the deep state. When robert muller leaves capitol hill. I think the american people will see that there was no collusion and there was oceans of bias and it turns out that the justice department has some questions for representative gates as well before we get into this sordid saga. We should just flag. That matt gaetz has not been charged with anything by anyone relating to the sex scandal correct. That's correct so. This is all stemming from a report initially in the new york times that gates was under investigation for perhaps having sex with a seventeen year old and for the payments to
Carl Zimmer on Defining Life
"Carl. Zimmer joins us now. He is a columnist for the new york times and he is the author of many books. He was last on the podcast for his book. She has her mother's laugh. His new book is called. Life's edge the search for what it means to be alive. Carl thanks for being here. Thanks for having me all right so right now. You're kinda busy. You've been reporting on corona virus for the times. What is that leg. It's kind of overwhelming You know i am kind of startled that you know the whole world wants to read what we at. The scientists have to write about. You know this virus. But i will remember this experience of the past year for the rest of my life really. It's been exceptional as a as a moment in science journalism as a science journalist. Is this an area that you had been looking at for years and years. Were you especially interested in epidemiology or was this sort of switching gears for you. I've had a obsession with viruses for a long time. I'm actually wrote a book called the planet of viruses a few years ago. So you know. I've reported on ebola and influenza over the years of have done the virus thing. And so you know i i felt like well i can bring my experience to bear on this and and so basically it just started doing the same kind of reporting about this virus but now of course this is a virus that was causing a kind of pandemic that we have not seen for one hundred years. You're not the only journalist covering this pandemic obviously not even the only journalists covering this pandemic on the scientists at the times. How do you all kind of divide it up. Do you have an area in particular that you are looking at specifically yet. None of us can do this alone absolutely and we have to really roll with the punches. You know i was focusing a lot on vaccines for example in the fall overseeing our tracker and then we started to to see these variants were popping up. Then we're of serious concern so i basically had to carve out some time to work on variants but mental really. My colleague has also been writing about various. Like crazy and ben muller and we actually have several people who who just try to keep up with the variants. You know and and there are other people who are handling the store. All the stories of vaccine distribution geopolitics and long cova. There be other people handling that. It's it's such an enormous story. What about it most interest you personally. Well i'm most interested in in The pandemic ending besides that that and not being sick. Yes yeah is unsettling jim how this pandemic has played out exactly. As scientists had warned it would

Who is the international community?
"Myanmar's progress towards democracy. During the two thousand and ten with nobel peace laureate aung sang suu as de facto head of government was widely understood as a good news. Story this week myanmar's military. The top madore decided that the democratic experiment had proceeded far enough claiming fraud in the most recent they threw a coup. D'etat seized power. Back and returned san suu now. Tarnished as an accessory to the tottenham does own recent accesses to detention the international community has responded predictably and in famous correctly demanding respect for the election results the restoration of constitutional order and so forth. Also this week. Us president joe biden in his first speech on foreign policy since taking office declared that america was ready willing and able to resume its traditional self awarded role as lead of that international community. But at this point what actually is the international community who decides what it thinks and are there really any penalties for defying or ignoring it. This is the foreign desk. But you're now seeing two sets of institutions governing although it's questionable how much actual authority the people without guns have to force their parliamentary decisions. At this point. The burmese military should relinquish power. They have seized release the advocates and activists and officials they have detained suspected. Criticism from western countries has relatively little direct. But it's not that they don't care at all it's noteworthy that they've gone to just extraordinary lengths to create alibis covers for the coup the very few occasions when you say that sanctions all the threat of sanctions hadn't affect i think would be the ending of the apartheid period south africa but they require cooperation and agreement among any state that has major economic relations with a particular state that is really under threat of sanctions. So that's pretty rare frontier. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew muller joined first of all by amen taunt a reporter based in yang-gon well first of all let's try and make sense of what has been occurring this week. How did the first hours of the coup ataur unfold as you experienced it. Was there a heightened military presence in the streets was a news broadcast social media alerts. How do they establish power. It's not like they lack practice this by now. Sure so the first couple hours were extremely chaotic. One was quite sure what was happening. Although most people had figured out that there was a coup so basically most people woke up on monday not being able to use their phones so there are some cards. Weren't giving them service. There was some rewards that depending on which company you are with. You have some level of service depending on where you are in the country. You had some notable service. But for me i couldn't call out and i didn't have any mobile data. Luckily i have wifi at home. Which is not true for a lot of people but yeah in the first few hours in django that weren't really military much of a military presence as far as i understand. Although in the days leading up to the coup there were some quite frightening pictures of tanks in yanko near military installations and what has gone. Felt like since how much of what was already passing for normal life i guess given the pandemic but how much is the feel of the city changed since the coup d'etat. Everyday's a little bit different. So the first day i went out to the markets just alexi what i could over here talk to people because you know people were getting online and a first a couple hours. Not everyone knew. The markets were busier than normal. There were more men. The normal people seem like they were ignoring the one person per household rule a lot more than they were. Previously people are largely ignoring the rules at this point in the pandemic here. But yeah like you just saw a lot of groups of people as opposed to the person who cooks which is generally a woman here but a couple hours in so maybe around nine. Ten people started panic buying especially rice. A lot of rice shops ran out of rice quite early in the morning. You know they generally never run out that bryce they usually are quite. we'll start but by the evenings. The supply chain was flowing again and had sort of compensated and the streets emptied out after a while but there was a while where people were trying to rush the banks. All the banks shut the atm set down. And then people try to. The gold shops and the gold shops started shutting down this
James Comey and Truth in Government
"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his byline primary colors And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I

Attorney General William Barr resigns
"Attorney. General bill barr is formally resigned. He leaves office next week. A move that shows. How far differed from so many republican veterans in washington who did find themselves ultimately fire by tweet in the trump era sources around bar have been leaking his departure plans for weeks. They're now trying to cast some kind of independent figure who left clashing with trump over issues like voter fraud and keeping that newly revealed hunter biden probe secret before the election. Now let me tell you having covered this throughout the whole period of the trump. doj this is classic bar. It's not unlike the gap between bars letter that offer a muller book report and the actual report which is one of the many misleading and political acts that led so many. Doj veterans across both parties. Demand bar resign long before he did this week. And in addition to that meddling in the mueller probe you had meddling in cases regarding trump allies while bars own resignation letter doubles down on this problem. He falsely described tump trump. doj's own russia probe as an effort to cripple or oust the trump administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion. He adds his salute to trump's quote unprecedented achievements for the american people joined now by a former federal prosecutor who has been a keen observer of the bar justice department. John flannery council. Good to see you good to see you days. Well we have the recency effect. Every lawyer knows it in trial you want to leave the jury with that last thought in their mind and it's probably going to be more effective than what you talked about on the first day. Right bar is nothing. If not an effective at times canny lawyer he leaves pointing and sources pointing to his clashes with donald trump. Do you think that's the way to remember him or was it a lot more of that earlier loyalty loyalty. I don't think is the key word for him. I think the words for him is that he's always believed does a federalist and somewhat of a christian cult this that the people really don't know what's best for them and so he really does believe in a monarchical government although it's striking to read his december fourteenth letter of resignation which reads a little bit like a hostage letter. I mean he's talking about how great this guy was abused them in the end because perhaps he couldn't go as far in their bromance in crime as trump was prepared to go. And like you said there's a whole series of things this man has done right after. He assured america he was going to be a great attorney general. Well he's probably the most erupt act of armor attorney general's throughout the history of the united states. That's his mark that's his legacy and he did it because he was not a law enforcement officer he was about his or trump. He did what trump needed to do for that policy. Which i suggest which. I think the embrace which is A government by fiat. I don't have to listen to you. Even congress Supported trump usurping usurping. The court Analyzing and investigating the investigations. That he then misrepresented as you. I said in. The mueller investigation. He has been every place. And i'm among those those thousands of prosecutors who said he should resign while he has belatedly but not for the reasons we said. He's he's obviously said something else but as he's going out the door. He was compromising those convictions. He was compromising are free and fair elections by these bogus statements he made about. We've found this fraud and somewhere along the line. it seems like there must have been an intervention. Somebody maybe a good criminal defense lawyer or someone who's concerned about ethics by which he could retain his bar license said. You have any idea what you're doing. Do you wanna be standing next to this guy. When he's flying to florida on the day of the inauguration or whatever crazy thing he does between now and january fifth or january six or january twentieth and trump He trump inhales the souls of people and guess them to do things that are their worst possible performances. And he's done that with bar. I don't know where bhargava would you like to have his resume he he. He came to this job because he was going to burnish his reputation and his re what could be his retirement years. Well now he's retired and he's done a lot of time in ford at hearings judicial proceedings. That had nothing to do with him. Running the show
Beijing lists grievances against Australia, giving warning to other countries with tense China relations
"Relations between beijing and canberra deteriorating. Awhile have created spectacularly in recent months. Australia has excluded while away from australia's five g network. Australia has cold for an international investigation into the origins of the covid nineteen pandemic. It's spoken up in support of hong kong and protested against china's treatment of its wiegand minority and china has bristled at all of these moves. Some of china's responses have been merely rhetorical and calls medic including crudely goading australia. You've alleged crimes committed by string. Troops in afghanistan others had more measurable effects. Devastating tariffs on australian exports to china including especially ruinous levies on australian. Wine has china decided to full out with australia. How should australia or any other country. China has a popat react or adjust. And is there any way back to cooperation with china for australia or anyone else. This is the foreign desk. My advice to punish morrison repeatedly has do more say lis- do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing national security pows enhancing now fundamental economic cow enhancing population growth and strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries around the world. Or just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well so this kind of patriotism and chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of covid domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its cover up and handling. I'm so getting the country tonight. This way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be spending so it's really two birds. One stone the chinese government should be totally a shined of this past. It diminishes them in the world is hello and welcome to the foreign. I'm andrew muller. China is not a nation known for its impulsively where foreign policy is concerned but using tends to act carefully and deliberately so it should be assumed that it is acting carefully and deliberately towards australia for a look at what china is doing and why china is doing. It joined first of all from beijing by sophia yan china correspondent for the daily telegraph severe festival. I think what we're trying to establish here is whether this is a specific row between china and australia or something. We might see more of in china's dealings with western democracies in general but we will start with stralia. Does it strike you. That china is going out of. Its way to pick a fight with australia. Or is this something. That's just kind of happened. Organically absolutely china's definitely targeting australia. It's been going for some time and it's obviously hit a peak. Now it's every day. There seems to be something new in the sputtered. Diplomatic spat between beijing and camera. And what beijing's really trying to do is to make australia of retail. Australia is a major. Us ally part of the five. The lions and australia matches on values with america. So hunting. Australia is a way for china to send a message to other. Us allies or the country's just thinking about siding with washington and to try to prevent them from considering policies that china dislikes bans on chinese tech firms over national security risks while we issue for instance even territorial disputes in the south china sea being public about stances over hong kong and taiwan china does not want countries to get involved with what it thinks is its own backyard so pressuring australia. This way is just one way to show. Hey this is what can happen to your country if you dare to take on. There's an upside to this too. It's certain swagger for the domestic audience to show that this all powerful country china can finally stand up to the west. You have to remember that. For the chinese government and for many chinese people there is a very painful history and memory of what's called the quit century accumulation. That was the hundred years before the communist party took power in nineteen forty nine during which many say the glorious chinese empire crumbled at the hands of foreign powers. The brits the russians japanese china at the time lost almost all the wars fought. And actually that's when hong kong was ceded to the brits so this kind of patriotism in chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of cova kovic domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its botch cover up in handling and still getting the country two nights in this way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be sending so it's really two birds. One stone does a number of things going on there but let's just focus on one of them because it is a proximate cause of china's irritation with australia and indeed china's irritation with a few other countries. Which is far away and other chinese companies being locked out of five g networks. Why does china perceive that as an argument worth starting because it's not imaginable that any of these countries are going to change their minds. Way is in a way national champion. It's a private company. It's not state owned. But of course any company that succeeds in china is in some ways states approved so to succeed here. You definitely need to have certain. Party officials Tests the quench relationships and people in high positions in your corner and so while we the company that really shows and reflects the rise of china. It's headquartered in shenzhen which just two three decades ago with a rice patty backwater. Now it's silicon valley hub of china and this company itself really does show how quickly the economy here has grown china now. The world's second largest economy in china trauma very broad level wants to be taken seriously on the world stage and so attacking hallway company. That many would consider really national. Champion is attacking the status. That china now thinks it should have on the world stage so it's ironic also that there's concern from beijing. That other nations are talking about who as a national security risk because china itself has long said that it wants to keep certain industries telecoms utilities oil and gas within its own country at state-owned enterprises. Because they themselves. Beijing is concerned about the very same issue that foreign players could come into the country. Take a big share of the market and therefore be competitive domestically. They didn't want to see control here to foreign companies over the issue of national security. So it's actually a bit ironic for china to now be upset with other nations for saying that a chinese company coming in to build critical national infrastructure. Whether that's a nuclear plant or the telecoms network but then to say hey. You can't say that this is a risk. We don't pose a risk. it's it's it's it's. It's not very fairly for china to be saying that other nations
HIV Under the Microscope
"I this week there was cause for celebration as a covid. Vaccine became a regulator approved reality in the uk. All the time we've been waiting and hoping for the day when the searchlights of science would pick out invisible enemy. Give the pala to stop the enemy from making us ill. And now the scientists have done it and they used the virus itself to perform a kind of biological jujitsu and in fact because of that jujitsu the uk has become the focus of world media attention as the first western nation to formally approve corona virus vaccine for public use. Nevertheless some are questioning. Why britain's been able to move so fast according to the uk education secretary govern williamson. Speaking to see it's because we live in great britain. I just reckon we've got the very best people in this country and we've obviously got the best medical regulators much better than were french. Arab muslim belgians have much better than me americans. That doesn't surprise me at all because we're much better country than every single was okay but if that is actually true then what is that. We're better at in reality. The buck stops with a body called the nhra there. The medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency and down to them. That we've been able to approve sizes new coronavirus vaccine in record time and to explain what's involved what gaps still remain in our knowledge. And what is happening with the other major vaccine contender. The one being made by astrazeneca. His gino martini from the royal pharmaceutical society. Any new medicine has to be reviewed and tested the mitchell ray. The job is to inspect review. The data that's being generated so foams physical companies have to pay the testing. We'll clinical trials. Testing will phase one face to face free with effectively. The the medicine in this case. The vaccine is tested in human volunteers and subjects which representative while the population people. You're gonna begin the vaccine to create these clinical trials. The data's collected and the whole basis have put together a dossier and that's been reviewed by the shaarei in this case. What is the damage of being working in real time with manufacturers review the data in real time so that's why we've been able to get an accelerated. Is it as simple as that.

Dr Moore's Obituary mentions the son Bruno. Oh He's a retired computer systems consultant. He agreed to talk but didn't WanNa be recorded when asked about his mother's life during the war he tells me all he has has our snippets. The Past Bruno tells me didn't come up much as dinner. Conversation given his mother's feelings about the past it makes sense would he does know is this. She was born Anna Corolla Cooper and she was an athlete. She played tennis competitively and was a strong enough swimmer swimmer to attempt an escape during the allied invasion by swimming across the Rhine as she swam Bruno says snipers from the other side fired. Her Her Brennan tells me grandfather was the doctor who was eventually captured by the Russians and sent to a Soviet prison camp. These camps were notoriously brutal with hundreds of thousands of German captives dying from violence malnutrition or forced labor for years. Dr Muller didn't know whether her father author was alive or dead on the day of an allied bombing campaign that would devastate hometown. Doctor Family didn't have time to make it to the local bomb shelter. Turn which was fortunate because it was destroyed instead. The family hid in the garden. Shed which turned out to be the only part of the House that survived if the devastation. The bombing wasn't supposed to hit them. That hard annika is journalist who lives near Ephron were Dr Mueller grew up. They were actually aiming at the harbor in Cologne but they had the order not to return with all the weapons. Like get rid of all your your bombs before you get back home. Don't go round flying with all the bombs but just drop them somewhere and so unfortunately they were dropped on F oven. I commissioned Annika to find out anything she could about the Mueller's so she'd wandered the streets of Efren looking for traces of the family but most of the people who lived in Efren during the war are now gone. I ask if she was able to find out anything about Dr Mueller's father anything that might elaborate on his capture by the Russians. What I did come across and that kind of struck me was that he was a Nazi doctors? Union at the time so the doctors in this union their job was it to tell people From a medical perspective why one race would be superior to another now the race. eugenics exactly the mission of the National Social Esteban as the union was called was to make sure doctors were aligned with the Nazi spirit. We can't know for certain that Dr Mueller's father was enforced to join. But we do know that by the end of the war half of the ninety thousand doctors and Germany. Germany were not members of the astro went in other words. You didn't have to be in the union to practice medicine on top of that. There's this he wasn't just a member but he is listed as like the Kaiser Onsite which okay how do I translate. The rough translation is that Dr Mueller's father was an upper level manager in the Nazi physicians. League he oversaw district of two million people while it's impossible to know is private intentions and beliefs given the prestige of his position. It's unlikely he was a secret hero of the resistance. It's a leader of his rank let alone a medical leader would at the very least been aware of the systematic sterilization an and execution of those deemed undesirable among them. The so called mentally. Ill know under Dr Mueller might have felt compelled to leave the past asked where it was. What are your recollections of Herbert? And his wife no good people. I'm proud to know. I'm glad to be their friend once again again. I find myself speaking to a German psychiatrist and Montreal. His name is Dr Gert Morgenstern. And he was close to Dr Mueller and her husband Herbert both friends and colleagues. They would gather at Dr Morgan Stearns home in a quiet neighborhood in Montreal were Dr Mueller's husband. Herbert and he played music together. Herbert on the flu Dr Morgenstern on the Piano Dr Mueller would wander in and out listening to them play. She spent many hours in Dr Morgan Stearns Home Dr Morgenstern San Mark explained at the beginning of the conversation that his father might not have much to offer in recent years. His memory has begun onto falter and much of Dr Morgan's past has become loss to him. But since this might be the only chance I get to talk to someone who actually knew Dr Mueller who who can speak to her as a friend. We decided to give it a try. I asked Dr Morgenstern. If he remembers spending time with the Mueller's yes I think so. It was pleasant. We look forward to it. Mark says has his father's memory fails he's held onto the happy memories and allowed a lot out of the painful ones to go like the Mueller's Dr Morgenstern was a German who emigrated to Canada. But unlike the Mueller's he was a Jew he fled. Let Germany in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven a year before Kristallnacht. You both immigrated from Germany. was that a subject that came up. I don't remember life during the war. I don't remember any of that so she never talked with you about what she went through during the war. Not that I remember and we talked about was what we were doing and what we were planning to do. Dr Morgenstern says they never talked about the past that they didn't talk about their religions. Then even talk about psychology and they never discussed Germany. Mark says that after fleeing his father never spoken a word of German again so if they didn't talk about the past what did they do together make music and talk and what. What did you like to talk about wrote the music? We were playing because he was a fellow therapist as well as her friend. I asked him what he knows about. Dr After Mueller's practice her approach throughout our conversation. Dr Morgenstern Answers are brief a few words at most but when I asked him about Dr Dr Mueller's insistence on self birth and whether it was an idea that she tailored to my situation or some obscure therapeutic method Dr Morgenstern grows animated. Did she wasn't it wasn't doing a method. She invented what she said. It's a continual process had an attitude toward life in other words. You're you're actively producing your future in your present. You are decisions to make the have memories to select act and you're building your future. That way never actually finished giving berthier. So it Ed Never Completed Act. Well I take in my inability to give birth to myself as the failing of either myself for Dr Mueller. He wasn't really. Maybe Dr Mueller telling me over and over that birth was imminent was her way of saying there is no end point. It's just living and that's the point..

"Toward the end of Neal's therapy doctor. Mueller was diagnosed with cancer. It made her weak and in the last year she would disappear during their sessions for long stretches in the bathroom. The last it's time I saw her she. She shook my hand goodbye. I was very brave. Gracious dignified thing. The way she did it she said. Good luck I mean. She meant that she was like saying. Good luck with all of you. All of you kneel just good luck and she looked me in the eye and anyway so she shook my hand and forever's Lake burnt into my brain about a year after Neil stopped singer at the age of seventy seven. Dr Mueller died of cancer As with me Dr Muehler wasn't very interested in learning about Neal's past but unlike me from time to Time Neil did learn something about hers Bruce particularly towards the end as the bigger issues in his therapy receded and a sort of friendship emerged. They just talked sometimes a better better family life back in Germany. I think they were fairly wealthy. I think of right professional wealthy family. Her father was a doctor. They had a beautiful home. Tom Many stories and then The Nazis came and they absconded. They're in their home and used it for headquarters and her bitterness about the war. Is that as a German. She was regarded as the enemy. So I think that kind of smarted. She constantly constantly talked about Jews not the only victims and it was confusing her for her to work with Jews. I think she'd never said that. But I I think that you know his a lot of Jewish people in Montreal and the attitude toward sermon so I think that had to play back on her own wounds because she exposed her ones and I think I always thought that her we were. Also we're a part of her therapy.

"Ooh In recent months I find myself moving away from traditional psychotherapy and towards a more improvisational mental health regimen. That he is I stay up late twelve drinking beer and watching old movies. It's wild watching at close range. A Sean Penn.. Christopher Walken DOC and film from the nineteen eighties that I realize I'd already seen it in a college class. And with this recollection I remember the professor who taught the class and the one time I'd seen him outside of his classroom. It was in Dr Mueller's waiting room. I'd seen him exiting in her office or at least I think I had. The moment was long ago so fleeting but if true this memory had the power to tear open the potential wormhole connecting me to my past as a kid in therapy for the first time I had no perspective on Dr Mueller but here was was a full fledged adult patient of hers. A professor no less. Who'd have the experience and insight to cast the decisive vote in the? Was it me. Or was it Mueller referendum. Was She just weirdly. Hung up on this notion of self birth or was I just too young to get it with the movie paused in the background. I pace the floor of my living room. A plan begins to take shape. All I have to do is break all the rules of therapy of polite light society and track down a now elderly professor who taught at a school I dropped out of to inquire fitted been him. I'd seen exiting my therapist's office thirty years ago. Yes I agree nodding my head to no one in particular three beers into a six pack of tall boys at two in the morning morning.

"Did it and they won trump was right he was fucked and above that above trump's own agenda what I think this cost the country and honestly if he had followed through with that agenda that would have been the biggest thing of all but second to that what I think it costs the country is that when Donald Trump got elected. It should have been a moment for all of us for everybody who cares about this country who care who's in the space of commenting on politics fix for Democrats Republicans Independents Greens commies Nazis Libertarians. Whoever the fuck you are for everybody? It should have been a moment to go. Whoa what's going on here like let's have a reset what the fuck just happened? Okay the Republicans should have been like wow we were ignoring issues that are voting base really cared about. I mean we chose these two guys you know Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush to battle it out. No one even liked them and they love this guy. WHO's talking about completely different issues? Whoa we're not representing our people for the Democrats to go holy Shit? We Thought Hillary Clinton should win. Forty nine states against Donald Trump and she's lost cost. What are we missing? The mainstream media should have said holy crap. I mean these people are really angry at us but we're supposed to be championing them. Why why are we rightly should have been this whole reset where everybody evaluated everything and said hey what's going going on here? What what the Hell is going on your? Let's think this through and if Donald Trump is so dangerous and so bad well. Let's calibrate so that the country doesn't go off the cliff here with with craziness okay like there should have been this whole moment moment and instead everyone went Nah. They're racist and Putin did it and it it took away this moment that should have followed Donald Trump and the reason I say it is because I <hes> I think if you're worried about the direction the country's going in if you don't listen to the advice of the Donald trump correction believe me. The next guy is going to be a lot worse than trump you're going to get you're GONNA get another. You're you're going to get an actual extremist. You're going to get what you project onto Donald Trump. You might actually get that one day. You know it's like what I say. Within about Antifa all the time you talk about how there's this fascist you know like a white supremacist movement in the country and you're almost it's like well. We'll keep doing what you're doing and there might actually be one day and then when you see it you'll be like oh wow there really wasn't one before turns out. Charlottesville wasn't that big of a deal but it it could be in the future so this story on for for many different levels levels is is a really big deal and I I gotta say like it's even for me for somebody. Who if I do say so myself I gotTa say I think I've gotten the story pretty much right from the beginning most insistent motherfucking out well? That's that's a given the most consistent motherfucker you know <hes> please get my title proper <hes> but even for somebody who's gotten on this has been pretty accurate. I think on what I thought this whole thing was but it's amazing to see it. Turn into this you know to go from trump Russia collusion twenty four seven. He's a puppet of the Russians he's been what he's doing Putin's bidding and all these stories and to see it end with this pathetic showing by Muller just being grilled and refusing to answer questions and we all know why he's refusing to answer the questions because if he did did he would be an admission of itself. This is where we end. It's it's been an entertaining ride. It's been a hell of a story. It's it's interesting to live through moments like this where you're like this really is history story and when I say this historical in the same way that you know if I if I think like five to six just moments that have lived through in my life and my thirty six years on this planet I really do think this is up there as one of the biggest stories in modern American history.

We start doing a bit on the show at the end of shows we could start calling their offices and ask him for the evidence there another this is all over. Can I see that <hes> <hes> that evidence yeah no but then they once they're called on it and once the thing came out I mean I remember Swale was on a Bill Maher. Show it was right before it was when it was like the night that Muller announced the the investigation was wrapping up and that there would be no further indictments and if you remember if you can put yourself back in that time space two days earlier. Maybe the former head of the C._I._A.. John Brennan Annan guilty of treason arming al-Qaeda. He said there were GonNa be more indictments that you were going to see Don Jr. go to jail. You'RE GONNA see trump's family. Get indicted. You're gonNA see trump indicted. They were so everybody so when it came out that there were no further indictments you hadn't hadn't yet heard you know no collusion or conspiracy or any of that but it was like Oh wait what this already doesn't sound right and so and Bill Maher said something like you know swallow who is one of the guys who was like saying we we we have the evidence of this he said did we put too much faith in Muller like what what do you mean no more indictments. I thought all of trump's family and I thought they were all going down and swallow goes well I. I don't need indictments to know what I've seen seen in plain sight. I've seen you know I all you need is a twitter account to know there was collusion and he falls right back onto this just bullshit talking point and it's like Oh okay I can see how much the public like that guy for. How long is presidential campaign last yeah he already? I had to drop out there is still seventy five people running for the Democratic nomination and he already had to bow. Here's the first one to drop right. I believe so I don't know I think so I think like when Marianne Williamson is still in there and her fucking budget plan John is more crystals in the White House. That's a you know you did a bad job and I'm not even familiar with that. She's like the new age hustling power crystals that give you strength. I don't know if they put them in the White House. They make better decisions. I'll honest is probably a better budget than the one that <hes> just past might not so I can't I I'm not completely against it. Bring better fives the White House with ice crystals hoops. I'll be honest. I'm almost sold. She almost has if tolsey drops out she might be.

I wanted to come in to talk about this. This seem to me to be you know I. I know we've talked about this story a lot not <hes> but I think it's justified. I I really think this is like one of the biggest historical events that I've lived through in my life. I think almost like up there with nine. Eleven eleven the war in Iraq like just the big shit that I've lived through my life even Clinton being impeached. I mean Clinton being impeach was nothing compared to this.

"To that ladder with another hand as you fly through the skies of New York City the last thing the last thing they're hanging onto hanging onto desperately desperately was that Donald Trump did commit obstruction of justice now. I know I know we've been telling you he's a Russian puppet and he colluded with the Russians and none of that's true however into the investigation that he was innocent of she obstructed Justice Pastas and even though Muller didn't say he obstructed justice he did kind of say well. Here's ten instances where he might have and the only reason why he didn't conclude that trump obstructed justice was because there's this department his Justice Department legal opinion that says you can't charge a sitting president with the crime so <hes> you know he could be charged as soon as he leaves the White House and and this is where they get to the stuff where if you wasn't president didn't he'd be charged with obstruction of justice now as I pointed out on the show before this number one this is just really stupid because the idea that if trump wasn't president he could be charged with obstruction of justice like well if you weren't president and you fired the F._B._I.. B._I. Director what does that even mean. Only the president can fire the F._B._I.. Director so well if you weren't president but you thought about firing the special counsel what if so if I just fired a special counsel. I can't nobody except the president can do Ooh that's even to even put it into the context of not being president was stupid. However this was a death blow to that whole this was cutting the ladder and now you're falling with that little girl in your arms down into times square or or the Hudson River below you Muller said No? That's actually not right. He said he said that we said we couldn't come to a conclusion on whether or not to charge him with obstruction of justice and that is that's it. That's the end of it so in other words he wasn't being charged with obstruction of justice now. Everybody should have known this already because the even by the Department of Justice guideline that says you can't charge a sitting president which I find hard to believe that they would actually enforce it by the way that's not law. It's just something that the Legal Opinion Office of the Justice Department kind of came up with because are you telling me that if Donald Trump if they had uncovered evidence that he was a Russian puppet we'd still go. Well got to beat them at the ballot. Box can't charge present. You know what I mean. That seems crazy to me. However the the anyone should have known this because even though the guidelines says you can't charge a sitting president that doesn't mean that Muller couldn't right in his report he obstructed justice but we can't charge him because of this guideline he could have written that he could have said that also another pretty big blow to the obstruction of justice nonsense is that if Donald Trump had been guilty of obstructing justice? It's not like Donald Trump himself self would have physically obstructed justice right like even if Donald trump with he would have had people around him do it in which case you would have seen indictments of other people for obstruction of justice right so the fact that there were no other indictments of obstruction of justice. There were no indictments about a conspiracy with the Russians that is as that is in effect in exoneration on both counts by the way that word came up during the hearings that was so creepy when he's when when Muller went out of his way to point out that he couldn't exonerate Donald Trump and then one of the Congressmen to is credited jump on that and go exonerate like what the hell are you talking about. Prosecutors hitters don't exonerate people that is well outside the purview of a prosecutor. I don't even know who does exonerate people. MAYBE PRIESTS I. I don't know who can exonerate somebody. I suppose a defense attorney if they come up with D._N._A...

"Muller wrote a letter in late March complaining to attorney general William bar, the poor page memo to congress describing the principal conclusions of the investigation, quote, did not fully capture the context nature and substance of Muller's work. According to a copy of taken by the Washington Post days after bars announcement Muller wrote a previously unknown private letter to the Justice department, which revealed a degree of dissatisfaction with the public discussion of Muller's work that shocked senior Justice department officials the summary letter the department sent to congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March twenty four th do not fully capture the contents nature and substance of this offices, work and conclusion is there's an important part. There is now a public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation this threatens to undermine central purpose for which the department appointed the special counsel to assure full public confidence in the outcome of investigations. The letter made a key request the bar release. The reports instruction introductions and executive summaries and made some Nishel suggested reactions for doing so Justice department officials say they were taken aback by the tone of Muller's letter it came as a surprise to them that he had such concerns day. The letter said our Muller spoke by phone for about fifteen minutes. That's what that was about the next day bar member sends another letter to congress saying, oh, my summering wasn't meant to be a summary. A really because we got that impression from the minute said summary was called summary. Yeah. Republicans on the committee are expected the question bar about an insertion surgeon. He made earlier this month that officials had engaged in spying on the Trump campaign. Rosenstein, just complete disgrace. Yeah. I try to the promise that president. Now. I'll drive you to the prom. Oh, convertible another another career right blown reputations blown to tatters for this. Trader. I I don't know a has on them. I don't know what he's promised seventy two virgins, whatever no idea. I know is that this people that this thing that they called God ain't working God can't get to the heads of Trump and Mitch McConnell that God. Is not working. Yeah. This God thing. Yeah. It's interesting. Here's another comment. Malcolm said this on our show before too. He reminds us that Al Capone didn't go to prison for murder for tax evasion. Money stuff, which is why they're furiously fighting because he is compromised, and that's the other thing Malcolm said this report did not look at is he compromise. Which clearly the most of us have eyes and ears. The answer's yes. Yes. That's why he's furiously suing did not have his tax returns Deutsche Bank records business records revealed. And the other thing is people asked about in the Cuna about the counterintelligence section and doctors others. The other who told me, by the way, his daughter grew up on our show. Chris. That he she freaked out when he was leaving. I grew up on seventy better is that wise. Question your parenting? All right. Thank you. But the asked about the counterintelligence part, and they said, oh, no that is going. They're not always said to us that is a spy hunt. And that is not there's no way to stop that. Then it is ongoing. This is why. Southpaw tweeted, Adam Schiff is telling Chris Hayes he hasn't been getting counterintelligence updates relating to the rush investigation that they've gone dark for a year and a half. That's the other thing we need to know, what is going on America's national security, and what's happening with the twenty twenty elections. Right. Exactly. What might be compromised? Yeah. No, exactly in which states. Yeah. It's all coming out here. Now empty wheel tweeted bargain impeachment referral, and tried to treat it as something else. And that is clear in the mall report. If you read it, it is clear that he is saying the only basically similar reasons charged is because of this stupid rule, which really is dumb rule that you can't indicted sitting president for the body of everything you see in the mall report. So at any rate. Yeah. Clearly, I think he mentions congress usually twenty times it is very clear. And so I'm sure remember what how what did I say Chris couple days ago when Muller testifies, and they ask did you mean for the attorney general exonerate him? He will say no throat, and are they gonna ask them? Did you mean for congress to get the full and unredacted reports? Yes. Of course, he did. That's what they are constitutionally entitled to the thing is the reason that they're still not how what did I say when this came out? How is that stuff? Yeah. The underlying materials, what's redacted and the grand juries sharpie out. Yeah. Get another one. I'm running out. Now, the one. By golf card, by the way, say so this is a message to Democrats, Nicole. Wallace tweeted this debate about the politics of impeachment being bad for Democrats blows my mind. Imagine if beach reviewed is politically popular Debs would be accused of commencing impeachment hearings for political gain Dempsey, take politics out and do the right thing. And I would argue it's going to be great for them politically exhibit A Elizabeth Warren has rocketed up to second in the democratic rights having bright little leaguer at the plate and swing the bat. Right to walk. Right. I mean, Joe Biden still way ahead. But but interesting the Bernie has plummeted quite a few points to third, but, but that's a huge story mayor Pete and Elizabeth Warren have throw. Yeah. Elizabeth Warren is up to second leadership. That looks like I love it from her. She has to hone days and putting out like really specific policy points, which is requesting Chris that's why I've been saying she's a perfect textbook example of the walk and chew gun caucus every that I keep talking about she's showing how you do what she's putting out very detailed policy, and she's putting policy points and showing you how we're going to pay for them. Right. That's what is wanted forever. Nebulous stuff from everybody else people accusing her of doing the peace thing for politics. Like, are you kidding? I mean, first of all she doesn't really talk about it anymore unless she's asked. She just said I read the report there is no other option we have no other option here when a new nickname, polka Trump bass. Yeah. No. Oh, my God friendly Fernando Bondi. Eric Holder, humid, a repenting tweets that they wrote before this came out, right? Eric Holder had tweeted any competent public corruption prosecutor would bring obstruction charges against Trump and win. The only reason Muller did not was because of the flawed DOJ every restriction against a sitting president. He said so below congress now has a constitutional responsibility. Here it is congress and boy Republicans just hop on board. Chris van Holland just posted the audio. We just played of him lying. You can't have an attorney general at lied to congress. I mean, okay. He said we now know Mahler stated his concerns on March twenty seventh and that bar totally misled me, the congress and the public. He must resign. He's in charge of making sure laws are followed in the United States for him to not follow the laws kind of disqualifying. Yeah. Just throwing that out there. Yeah. A lie under oath to congress. Once again, man, I hope we are people are paying attention Democrats. The media is how we got here is people being a bunch of sees. Yeah. After the bar cover up in falling in line. The people that Greenwald is further stretching to the Uber left. Hashtag, right. Yeah. We just talked about before know, Malcolm was doing a whole a whole hour talk. But it just that is not a knock on Bernie or Bernie supporters that the last the Khuda gras of the Russia operation. We welcome said started. I mean. Back to the final piece of this was to target Sanders. Supporters. That's not a knock on Bernie Sanders imports. But it was the whole point of the Russian operation was to devise hurt Hillary Jeff Sessions by pool in the Bahamas. Go Pablo wrong language, anyways. I would like to have another mo- hito, please. I am glad I recused myself delicious. Kevin. I mean, you know, broke it down that it really is very simple to understand the whole Russian operation is Russia. Good Hillary, bad Trump. Good. It's very simple to understand what they started doing and long. And he said this actually started rock Obama. Oh was reelected. And what's happening? What's happening? Dress for to make okay. Yes. This did not age. Well. This was always on Fox News that Glenn Greenwald. Go on Fox News to be a few whenever this was all we heard for twenty months is Robert Miller is a man of the greatest integrity and patriotism, the idea the very idea just think about this that he would allow Bill bar to run around making false and misleading distortions about what the molar team found and not one person on the Muller team, including Bob Mueller himself would stand up and say, wait a minute. He's distorting what our findings was that is laughable xactly the conspiracy theories that led to this entire mess in the first place. Hello men. That's me having the last laugh. Bring kind of dumb. It's just too many to be relevant little Nance bashing that other. There's there's one more from you to hear it. Well, want is kind of a strong word, but okay, Rachel, Maddow, and MSNBC are the Judy. Miller's of this story except unlike Judy Miller who scapegoated for doing things her male colleague in her career destroyed. Rachel, maddow. We'll continue to make ten million dollars a year for him because she's their most valuable brand. Yes, there will be no reckoning and consequences for this story that the media will radically raise and deliberately wrong for almost three years. Now glad kept.
