Seeking Refuge On The Open Road
"When we reached bob wells. He was camped out of the grid in his white. Gmc savannah van in the middle of the california desert. Some twenty five years into his experiment in mobile living. How did this whole journey start for you. What was your life like before you discovered this this lifestyle while i was either very very lucky or very unlucky depending on your point of view it was the winter of one thousand nine hundred five. Bob was living in anchorage alaska where he'd worked for over two decades in a union job at safeway saint job. His father had worked until his retirement. At the time bob was going through a divorce and after alimony and child support payments. He says he was no longer making enough to clear his rent. He was desperate and that is when he noticed old beat up box banned for sale on the side of the road for fifteen hundred dollars and he decided he had to go for it. That was all the money. I had left in the bank. But i had to have a place to live and so i bought it and That night through a backpacker. Sleeping bag. Down and i began my van dwelling adventure in the winter and the cold van and i That first night. I cried myself to sleep. I literally cried myself to sleep. Or when you're going through a divorce you you cry yourself to sleep on a pretty regular basis ends but sure just of course greatly compounded here. I was homeless bomb living in a van on the streets. And how much lower can my life get. But bob done a lot of camping in his life and you had to make a small space cozy and after a few weeks eat figured out how to cook and stay warm deal to bed and cabinets used his gym membership to shower. Figured out how to make it sustainable. And the money. He was saving on rent. Meant he didn't feel like he was always on the knife's edge it slowly and subtly shifted from. I despise my life to. This isn't really that bad to hey. Every month i keep the money and put it in my pocket to. I kind of really really liked this. And that's the way it's been every sense. Was it difficult at all to kind of switch. Grand narratives about What trajectory you're supposed to take as a productive member of the economy absolutely it was a traumatic transition you know. We are trained from birth to death. Our purpose in life is to be good productive citizens and so it made me question everything i had done. Exactly what society and told me to do. I'd gotten a job. I wanna house. We'd had kids. I was following the american dream to the best of my skill level and ability. As i could and then i was forced into living what society told me was the life of total failure homeless in the van and for the first time in my life i was happy well that raises a lot of existential questions and when i looked around at all the people i work with work eat sleep. Working sleep work. Eat sleep. I said what society told me it was not true. I've finally found a way. That's happy for me. Let me try to understand that. My life and for the life of others a few years later bob had saved up enough to quit his job at safeway and by supplementing his union pension with seasonal stints as a campground host. He was eventually able to take to the road as a full-time nomad in two thousand five about a decade. After he moved into the van. Bob decided to pay forward. Some of the techniques developed the started a website called cheap. Rv living the serve as a kind of resource for other people interested or in many cases forced to move into a vehicle. I started the sole intent of letting people know there wasn't on alternative. You didn't have to live under the tyranny of the marketplace and the way to do that was to eliminate your biggest cost in life. Which is your housing with cheaply. Live frugally and then you can live well for a long time the site just kinda mosey too long picking up you know few page views here and there in two thousand eight happened. Bob says in the wake of the financial crisis. He was inundated with desperate messages. Have lost my job. I we moved in with my family now. My family is lost their job. Now we're all losing our own. What are we going to do. And that was the question. I got over and over and over again. Even after the economic recovery started to pick up the number of inquiries and page views and people in the community continued to grow. Fueled partly by the rise of social media. Bob started his cheap. Rv living youtube channel in two thousand sixteen and has since become just one of many popular nomad influencers but unlike a lot of the glossier more glamorous content associated with the hashtag van live crowd. Bob's videos are all about helping people struggling to keep their head above water financially and they're filled with the nitty gritty details of living behind the wheel. Today we're gonna talk about heat today. We're gonna talk about taking showers. The topic of today is poop. You can cut your behinds. Not one of them. You want that thing to be clean all the time. Bob also does these little interview profiles of people living in different kinds of vehicles cars to trucks to buses. Welcome back fellow nomads. Today we're going. Meet a new friend of mine. Joe sale load everyone relax. They're really out. There doesn't look like there's a bunch of people out there. Yeah thank you that video for the record. Two point five million views and counting. Bob says his videos have become so popular that he's now making more money than ever before. I think eventually the second break but it gets great reviews on amazon which is why i'm recommending ads in affiliate marketing. Help him bring in over one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. Bob makes enough to have two full time assistants helping him with his work and because he says he never plans to live in a house again. He makes a very healthy profit. I'm make much more money than i ever thought. I could possibly make in my life. And i live in a van. My expenses are pretty darn low with that extra money. Bob started a nonprofit homes on wheels alliance to support people transitioning into living in their vehicles. They've started to outfit and give vance to people in dire need of a new vehicle. And bob says he saving up to buy a plot of land for an in person resource center. It isn't clear how many people are living on the road at this point. But in two thousand ten when bob started this annual gathering van and car dwellers in the arizona desert called rubber tramp rendezvous it had a few dozen attendees by two thousand and nineteen. They had an estimated ten thousand people show up and as a central node in this growing community. Bob has had a kind of front row seat to the massive disruptions of the past decade. And he's watched as certain demographics have borne the brunt of those changes. It's a surprisingly large female. Contingent older women in their sixties and seventies. When they were girls they were told get married. Stay home raise a family and so they never go up so sturdy and then now they're living on five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month so skirt and he cannot live in this country on five hundred two thousand a month so sturdy and live in house and you just can't do it and so they all desperately needed the solution as well and i told them all. If you move into your plan you can live reasonably well on that. You won't be rich but you won't eating dog food and there's hope bob says he has seen an uptick in views and inquiries about van dwelling over the last year. But so far he says the stimulus checks and the nationwide moratorium on evictions have slowed. The number of new nomads. Still he says as the baby boomers continue to age into social security and as the effects of climate change intensify bob expects the movement towards van life to surge and he sees it is his mission to try to help however he can. I've got a string of lifeboats. And i want to get as many as i can into the lifeboat and i think the hammer blow of two thousand eight really put a crack in people's confidence and i think when you combine that with this cheers a natural disasters and the epidemic. I think people are just going to be abandoning the american dream in droves. That's all i'm trying to do is get people out

St. Edwards University Senior Chase Bartlett
"Everyone John Worth. I'm here this week. Sports illustrated tennis podcast. Hope you're doing well or some approximation. Thereof our guest week is chase arlit. Who is chased? Bartlett Jason Bartlett is a senior at Saint Edwards College in Texas. He reached out to me via twitter and wanted to tell me about his story. Which is essentially that in the wake of covid his school's Athletic Department abruptly has killed its tennis program and they go tell you the details. But they're not pretty and I think this is something that unfortunately gonna come up more often in the next few months that tennis is a non Revenue Sport and with no final four. No March madness and with football. This fall right now in some doubt. These are tough times. College athletic departments. We've talked a lot about tennis on the tours being suspended but this trickles down to the college game as well so today we talked with a college tennis player about some of the woes facing his program and Again I think this unfortunately is going to be an issue. That's GONNA be come sort of being creasing -ly resonant this fall so without further ado chase. Are you a senior where he was senior? Wants you to sort of Orient us where you are and what you've been through and then we can go from there the ask so. I I just graduated last week From San Cruz University in it's a division two school We finish this year ranked six in the country with six all American awards and make like replant nine overall team. Gpa So it's probably the best team ever had in school history For lottery reasons. And unfortunately the school's administration just cut cut six of our teams Men and women's tennis included earlier this month About three and a half weeks ago actually and since then we've been trying to do all these reinstatement plans and we've been having caused zoom calls with with the administration trying to figure out. How can we get these programs back? And how can we find a place for these is that it's athletes? I'm going to cut you off periodically just to The flesh is out on. This is obviously corona driven or. This is separate. There's been some a lot of people are thinking that this is sort of just a cover up from corona but the school is very adamantly saying this is directly related to the crown virus. You know they. They were expanding programs. You know two months before. They cut our programs to added East sports program in a track and field program and looked like there was plans to build a Lacrosse program as well. So it. It's sort of confusing. It's just to be just to be clear your tell me about your school yes a my school is in Austin Texas Like I said it's a division to university. It's got I think before. This had sixteen programs if you're not including tracking sports with which suggest added so now they're down to almost bare minimum to compete in division two. I think and in their conference requirements. So it's a it's a pretty good school it's right across the street from Ut's downtown Austin's a nice place lime scooters. I think yeah absolutely your your senior year and things. Things are last semester of college and then all of a sudden things go sideways in a hurry before we get to the finances. I mean just an emotional level. What's been like for you at? I couldn't imagine anything worse. It was almost like losing her relatives. And that's sounds ridiculous to say but it was. You know these are dreams that we've been working on. You know my teammates innocence before fourth grade when we had our tenth birthday party. That was around the time of college. Athletes really start playing in Brooklyn. Our whole lives in the end. We had shot actually this year winning a national championship. And that's what made it. I think so disappointing for us especially when I got here for years ago when I was a freshman unranked we lost to some pretty bad teams a now for the first time in school history. We've got team that can win a national championship. And and then grownup virus comes in all of a sudden you know. We didn't even know what was going to be our last practice. Our last match in three weeks later they they cut our program so it's pretty devastating for a lot of us. You're a senior. You said you graduated congrats. You still have a year of eligibility I assume if you want it. Yes so all the spring sports got one extra year of eligibility. Which means that you know. I could transfer on plan of the year which I'm planning on doing WanNa get an NBA and maybe play for a division one school A lot of teams aren't so fortunate though even though you know they can transfer Some of the freshman for example we had two freshman that were all Americans. I've known for a long time. Actually and one of them is quitting tennis because he he can't think of going anywhere else in the other one is going somewhere with no scholarship because much the teams have been all booked up because the timing of all that the transfer portal and in all sports right now is Is Is Meek writer. It's just just clogged in everything from the basketball the wrestling you hear this again and again. I mean I think in college tennis's I we're going to hear more stories about this a little bit different division one schools where the TV revenue from the NCAA tournament in the revenue for football. If that doesn't come in that's going to affect the whole athletic department. It sounds like that's a little bit different than the situation at Saint Edwards. Not like. You had a huge football team. That was spitting out millions of dollars in revenue for the heart letting department absolutely. We don't even have team And Are you know the sports that got cut? I mentioned the Sierra. But they're actually the revenue sports You know of the six that were cut. Men's soccer was bringing in around one hundred fifty thousand dollars in revenue per year Cheer was a was a great reverence for that was cut in. They were bringing in around the Santa Soccer and men's tennis was costing a measly fifty two dollars. How can you dollars year expenses? Yes semi the bill. Yeah exactly how? How did you generate revenue? And what were the expenses so about three weeks ago we received a leaked document From a consulting report that was done in two thousand eighteen of Athletic Department in the way they did it. They did what's called the contribution margin analysis so basically you factor in all of the expenses. Right your background scholarships you factor in coaches budget factor-in overall budget And then you factor in you know okay. So I have four scholarships right and I have a twelve man team and all of a sudden. You know we're actually. You might be bringing in money because of the people who are on scholarship. So it's not like the ball where there's a ton of scholarships or something like that. You know our program wasn't fully funded so

I spoke to assistant principal Harland warrior from Hayes in highschool. Remember that school has about thirty homeless students. So we wonder the very transit. We don't is sometimes their numbers chains and their cell phone numbers are disconnected or whatnot. So it's hard to get a hold of that student, generally, you don't have a parent to be able to call and may know where they are. So right now, we have stood on their own. They're owner. Oh, yes. They're all Harlan believes there are many many more, but are too afraid to speak up. But definitely a stigma associated with students. Don't want to be associated with needing support or being considered homeless. Because them it reflects on their parents and not having a support that all their other students have. So there's many students sure that are sleeping on couches and bugging up sleeping floors. And generally if we have a high school student that is experiencing homelessness there are siblings in elementary schools that are sip experiencing homeless also. Skyros care.

"One hundred fifty thousand dollars to stop talking about her lengthy love affair with Trump which occurred wild. Trump's wife was caring for their newborn son pecker was granted immunity from prosecution in exchange. For his complete cooperation, which he has given pecker is selling the Enquirer because of that and possibly more because the papers being sued by the richest man in the world, Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, the tabloid whose cover once featured a picture of dead Elvis in his coffin is about to undergo a change Trump. Meanwhile, is still individual one in that campaign finance case Trump has long claimed that he can't release his tax returns as every other modern president has done because the IRS he says he's auditing his returns. But there is no law or rule that bans making public your tax returns. Just because they're being audited. So Trump has of course, been lying about there being such a rule was he lying about the audit to it may have been alive before he took office, but the tax returns of presidents and vice presidents are routinely audited by the IRS. Every year. They're in office. There's only one way to find out if there is an audit. And to find out what the IRS is finding that Trump is so keen on hiding those returns need to be seen by a critical. I even if it's not your eye or mine. That's why the House Ways and means committee started investigating how the IRS conducts audits on a president not how Trump defrauded the IRS as he apparently has. But rather how's that audit going? The way Trump is.

He actually was making a lot of money on that show, reportedly like two million dollars a year. He was making like something like one hundred fifty thousand dollars per episode. So he was very compensated. Black gay, dude. Let me just do a brief recap for people who are not caught up or people who need to refresh their memory. He first reported that he received a envelope with a powdery substance in a crude drawing of a man hanging from a tree with a gun pointed at him. He says that it said maga- on the return form one leak later. Smollet reported getting jumped in the early morning hours in downtown Chicago by two masked individuals hurling racist and anti gay slurs. They physically assaulted him. According to the actor beating him up pouring chemical on him and wrapping a rope around his neck before fleeing. He later CEC from stuff in a hospital. Minor injuries. That's almost like a parody of a racial attack. Like they're walking around with rope and shit and bleach. Sent himself. So what the police say happen is that he sent himself the letter. And when it did not get the attention. He wanted he paid to do three thirty five hundred dollars to stage, the attack be a thirty say they've got ample evidence, including suspicious text messages surveillance footage and a copy of the check he paid to the brothers. The actual check fucking paid in check. It's the stupidest thing crime one on one. I mean with a check made out to the people that attacked him. It's kind of hard to dispute the. The brothers themselves. Also, implicated Similac and said, yeah, he paid us. It was a whole stunt. And apparently it's because he thought that he was not being compensated enough on his show. He wanted you know, sympathy and support, and I think he thought that it would make him a star because a lot of times when you get in the center of media tension, and especially when you're the victims something terrible all the sudden, you know, overnight you can become a star. And I think that's what he was hoping would happen. Which is just kind of rhonette considering who's sitting so pretty, you know, so I'm sure a lot of you, especially American listeners have followed the story because it's just really dominated the news. Because I I the story came out and everyone believed him, and it's awful. It was like oh my God. And it had this whole maga- element..

The grounding is estimated to cost airlines about one hundred fifty thousand dollars per day per plane, Boeing shelled out five hundred million to airlines after grounding the seven eight seven for three months in two thousand thirteen.

US, Boeing And President Trump discussed on FT News
"Order of prohibition to ground all flights of the seven thirty seven. Max eighth. Andy, seven thirty seven max nine and planes associated with that line. I've spoken to Elaine Chao secretary of transportation to Sylvia, we just heard Donald Trump making his announcement about the grounding of Boeing's seven three seven max in US airspace on Wednesday. Can you take us through the timeline of events Pap starting with when the max eight I went into service. Yes, sir. The Mike Sade is a variant of the seven three seven aircraft that Boeing launch of the nineteen sixties. It was one what has been one of those best selling aircraft. The Maxine I launched in twenty seventeen. What happened last year in October that line and Indonesia airline crashed shortly after takeoff and killed all hundred and eighty nine people on board. Now, what's happened? This week is our on Sunday. An Ezio piano lines crashed also killing everybody on board. That event has now triggered a worldwide ban of the aircraft. Starting with the Chinese and ending with the Americans yesterday. So air crashes, unfortunately, do just happen. But from what we know so far what are the similarities between these two crushes that are getting thirties. Concerned just a stress we don't know anything definitive. The black boxes are still being examined by the accident. Investigators with what we do know is that both accidents took place in the same phase of flight shortly after takeoff and pilots on the GOP and airlines reported flight control problems, which was the same case with liner back in October. So there's been a lot of debates around the aircraft's automated stall prevention features, she's caught the MCAS after the lion. At crushed some pilots in the US complain they'd been unaware of this feature. What exactly their concerns and how long have they been kicking around for these concerns? I surfaced off of the line aircrash October where a lot of pilots in the US. So that they wanna wear of the feature at hadn't been in any of their training manuals or hadn't been explicitly specified. In the training manuals. Some of them were saying earlier this week that now that they know exists, and they know how to deal with it. And specifically how to counteract it if it does take effect? Some of the were saying to me they thought this aircraft was still safe to fly. Right. So what would you say what would people in the industry say about the way the management of Boeing has handled this crisis? I think there are mixed opinions out there. I think it's a waste difficult to react in these sorts of circumstances. But their reputations definitely on the line and some suggest that burn should've acted immediately. After the crash on Sunday. They should have come out and said, we're banning this aircraft. They have not been to crushes in less than six months. We don't really know what the causes yet of the second one will ban the aircraft and others of sort of made the point that Boeing should've waited for the US regulated to come out and burn them. Which is what happened yesterday is a bit of a mixed view out there, but equally it doesn't look good for bearing in terms of reputation in the moment. No. And its share prices of taken a hit the rating agency Fitch worn. That the crisis could become a systemic issue with lengthy groundings delivery delays in order cancellations. What is the potential scale of the damage to Boeing nobody's really putting a number on it at the moment. I mean, the shares as you say they've tanked or they dropped steeply. They lost about twenty six billion dollars worth in terms of market cap. Nobody has yet cancelled an order for the seven three seven eight, but the entire family, and there are four variance is a very big of for Boeing. It's wrapped up around five thousand order so far worth around six hundred billion dollars. So it's a big earner, you know, big potential hit it speaking of hits. Josh, what are the losses that international airlines that have offered them at seven three seven, you know, what's the impact on them? So those that have them in service already will be facing costs on several fronts. We've had one definitive figure quite clear figure from to the traveler Prater, which has an airliner has five max aids, which is grounded may said is going to cost three. Million euros a week likely. So we know that that six hundred thousand euros per aircraft. That's quite a lot of money. But what that consists of is various things. So a lot of airlines don't own their aircraft. They lease them. And you have to pay rent we have to pay a lease fee. Even if you're not using it. So your paying the FIBA you're not getting any cash in you, go to pay your staff because they call it necessarily transfer from one type of aircraft another you have to pay parking fees is expensive enough to park a car in London Commissioner tried to park and aircraft at Heathrow or ever. And then of course, the passengers you have to reroute them, you might have to put them onto other services. You might be liable for compensation under certain European schemes. So all of these costs mount up and one consultancy has estimated that they think it will cost one hundred fifty thousand dollars a day per craft grounded. Now, there are lots of variables in there. And we have yet see, but clearly the longer these planes are grounded the more. It's gonna cost not that people's holiday plans in a survey of the most important thing in these sorts of circumstance. Mises, but what is the impact on the travel industry and how much disruption as this like to cause unwed? Do we know? There's ever a good time for a crash, but the fact that it happened now in the winter scheduled was the tail end of the winter schedule means that there are fewer planes flying. So there was a bit more spec passively. So if an airline can't use the for Norwegian, for example, can't use it smacks eight so it substituting on some of its roots at seventy seven Dreamliner so that will take some of the strain. But it depends how long this goes on for because if this carries on into the summer schedule, which actually starts at the end of the month when planes when flights ramp-up, then he could find it very pressing. There are other places they can get planes from they can wet lease them as it's called from third parties, which supply them with the planes and with the crew, hence, the wet leasing dry leasing is without the crew those are expensive, and of course, competition for those if all of these planes are grounded means that the prices of those will undoubtedly go up so it could be hugely expensive for them on several fronts and said just doing know who the main customers hair, and where will the buck stop is it the airlines that will end up taking. These will bowing to help them in some way burning. I think ultimately is going to have to help them. But the question is how long does that help take come? Is there a legal case of their contractual wranglings have to happen? I so we know that some of the biggest airlines with ovarian with the biggest orders, I think American United southwest. Norwegian have a tenth of their fleet at the moment. But they also have that eighteen, but they also have ninety two on order now Ryanair's interesting 'cause they have one hundred thirty five on order due to start arriving fairly soon. Ryan has big expansion plans over the next few years is it going to be able to keep up with those in the short term if it has all of these planes. There are some airlines which have very strong balance sheets, and we'll be absolutely fine. They can take the hit because they know they'll get it back. It might look pretty in the short term. There are other airlines not naming any that will find it much harder to sustain this kind of loss on a consistent basis. Finally, sylvia. We know that Donald Trump's budget this week proposed a cut to the Federal Aviation Administration. Inspired. Of the fact that is air traffic control system remains years behind many of his counterparts. What's more the FAA lacks chief after Mr. Trump failed to get approval for his own nominee? What kind of pressure is the FAA under the FAA's definitely under the microscope at the moment. Lot of people saying it was too slow to act notably. The Chinese regulator was the first one on Monday to ban the Akra from his own space quickly follow other countries around the world. And then e so the European regulator on Tuesday, some people saying the agency's understaffed underfunded others are saying that the FAA was right to wait to get some sort of evidence on the cause of the second crash. There has been some mentioned of new satellite imagery, those come out, which might have been one of the reasons why the FAA together with President Trump on Wednesday decided to ground the aircraft in the states. Those people as supporters of the FAA's that are saying it was right that the agency didn't bow to political pressure. That had been building up in washing since the Europeans bound the. Craft not to act into to wait for the facts. Having said that we still don't really know why the aircraft crashed. But we hand say is that the prestige of the eight hundred fifty billion dollar aviation industry in the US has definitely taken a hit this week.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos says National Enquirer publisher tried to extort him
"The world's richest man published on explosive blog post last night, a nine minute read that could have huge repercussions. Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder and Washington Post owner accused the publisher of the National Enquirer of trying to blackmail him with sexually explicit photos. The National Enquirer is also caught up in the federal investigations tied to the Trump campaign. NPR's Alina Seljuk is here to help us untangle the many threads here Alina. This is a crazy story so many threads. What are the latest developments today? The big question today is whether federal investigators will take a new look at the publisher of the National Enquirer as you said, it's called American medium. It's run by David pecker and piker is or at least used to be a longtime friend of President Trump, and Jeff Bezos is accusing him and his company of extortion and blackmail, and that's big because bear with me here. Beker has an immunity deal with federal prosecutors. It's part of a case of a hush money payment to a woman who said she had an affair with Trump. But the deal hinges on Becker and his company staying out of trouble and Basil's alleging blackmail puts a huge bold question. Mark over the fate of this immunity. So one question here is has he just nullified the immunity deal. How did bazo get involved in this entire controversy that until now was about President Trump and hush money payments to women? Well, a few weeks ago, the National Enquirer published very awkward embarrassing text messages that Basil's had sent to the woman with whom he was having an affair and Bezos funded an investigation to find the leaker of these messages will fast forward to last night, he decided to publish emails that he says he's received from officials at American media in the National Enquirer in the Email say the tabloid has many more salacious texts and photos, which are described and. Painful detail, and the emails demand that Basil's stop investigating the leak and also publicly declared that the coverage of his affair was not motivated. So today American media responded, they're basically saying they were reporting on Basil's, and they did it legally, though, notably. They did not come on the content of the emails that were posted by Basil's. And I just want to say this is unusual for basis. He's very rich. Of course. But he is a tech nerd who founded Amazon, he's not your typical celebrity. This is not a man who's lived out his life in the public eye, and with those blockposts he's started a pretty public crusade against a meteoric mutation that time, and again has gone to bat for President Trump, and now basis is accusing them of going after him for political reasons because he owns the Washington Post, which Trump has repeatedly criticised, we should also say that while the National Enquirer says what it did was legal. It is not typical journalistic practice to say, we have embarrassing material. And if you don't back down, we will publish it. Right. But how tip? Typical is it for the national inquirer and its publishing its owner company to do this sort of thing. It definitely has as you're saying history of practices that are considered journalistically unethical, for example, paying sources for stories buying embarrassing stories about celebrities in exchange for favors from them. The tactic known as catch and kill in which the tabloid buys rights to stories purely to suppress them that was what was alleged in the Trump incident. We'll get to that didn't Justin. That is actually what God the National Enquirer in the federal investigation involved in the federal investigation with the Trump campaign is you're saying American media in Becker admitted to paying former playboy model Karen McDougal to buy the rights to her story. She says she had an affair with Trump. And the publishers plan was to kill the story to protect the Trump campaign during the two thousand sixteen election Becker, cut an immunity deal as I mentioned with the prosecutors, and this is the deal that's now in question because of businesses accusations of essentially criminal wrongdoing. MPR's Lena Seljuk? Thank you very much. Thank you. Okay. Back to the legal threats of this fight between Jeff Bezos and American media as Alina just mentioned AM, I signed an immunity deal with federal prosecutors in New York the deal was in exchange for cooperation and pledging not to break the law again AM I admitted to violating campaign finance laws in order to help President Trump get elected as we also. Just mentioned bazo snow alleging blackmail and extortion, hangs a big old question. Mark over the fate of this immunity deal to talk about that we're joined by legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin. Hi, jeff. Hi, hi. So am I put out a statement this morning saying they believe fervently that the company acted lawfully? But also saying they're going to look into basis his claims. So if he is proven right, if they find something did break, the law will this is a very interesting question. Extortion is obtaining a thing of value by threats. In other words, if I say to you give me a million dollars or I'll kill you. That's extortion will here there's clearly threat we will release these embarrassing photographs if you don't drop this investigation and clear our name. So the question what's the thing of value? Exactly. The question is is that service from the from the Washington Post? A thing value. And I think the answer clearly to that is. Yes, it is enormous value to am. I. To be cleared by the Washington Post. However, it is not certainly a kind of extortion that either ever heard of actually being prosecuted and one possible defense that AM I might offer is that look we are simply trying to get our name cleared through preventing unfair inaccurate publicity. And you can't punish us for that. Now, it's not usually done through the threat of of, you know, dirty pictures, but I think that sets up the argument, I don't really know the answer that sets up my next question, which is what standard would have to be met to prove that AM. I violated its immunity deal. Well, all immunity deals in non-prosecution agreements. Have the condition that you must not commit any more crimes. So it's really the. So we looked it up. And it's shall not commit shell commit? No crimes whatsoever. Right. And so if. AM I were even prosecuted, I think for this extortion or blackmail that could void that could void the immunity agreement right there. So, but they come down to the same question, which is was this interaction with bazo say violation of the law and without venturing too far down the road of hypotheticals. What would be the consequences? If AM I was found to a violated the deal. Well, then they could be prosecuted for the unlawful campaign contribution, which is was the money given to Karen McDougal to help the Trump campaign. I'm sorry. The women who says she had an affair with President Trump before he was correct. Nice. Okay. That one hundred fifty thousand dollar payment to her could be prosecuted as an illegal campaign contribution, which is one of the things that Michael Cohen already pleaded guilty to that's Trump's former personal lawyer real quick and the moments we have left or a federal prosecutor wants game out for me how the attorneys who signed that of unity dealer thinking about all these developments. Well, I think they have to investigation the basis post on medium dot com was certainly very provocative, and and and interesting, and and and potentially incriminating. But I think what you have to do is start talking to everyone involved. You have to see what the other emails were between everyone. What what what were there any phone calls between them you have to do a thorough investigation? But it is certainly worthwhile to do that investigation. Because as bazo says it does sound like blackmail or
"one hundred fifty thousand dollars" Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast
"One hundred fifty thousand dollars to go play. Basketball at this school. The money's gonna go from this person over here to your guardian or grassroots coach or high school coach or father, or whomever, and you just don't need to know anything about it. If you're ever asked about it. You just say, you don't know anything about it. And then just like civic at Kansas you'll you'll be allowed to play again. I you probably won't get caught. We probably won't get caught a be if you do get caught you just have to shrug your shoulders and say, but I didn't know and everything will be okay again. I hate amateurism rules, the concept is outdated. It's morally wrong. But as long as the rules are in place. I don't St. how you enforce them. If you allow players to play even though their amateur status is compromised just because they there's no evidence that they knew what was happening. Make all that. Largely agree with you. And I think that Kansas is going to try and make the argument that any benefits that were afforded to him. Have been paid for retroactively in. What would have amounted to game suspensions though, he did play last season? And that I I think that also like the status is not just will he play will he not Williams AA handout a similar suspension than it did Hernandez. I would believe I would believe that whenever we find out more about this also has to determine if it's going to bring any sort of potential. Judgment on Kansas for playing him last season. And if that violated anything, and if so what Kansas quite stand to lose from record vacation among other things. But the greater point you make there is level headed and accurate. You know, whenever we do get news. It might be in time for an ex podcast. We'll wait and see we'll have obviously react accordingly. But in terms of on the court parish getting him back. I if they if they do. Yes, it's a help. But I, you know, however, you want to slot Kansas right now, if you wanna say, Kansas, let's just let's say Kansas. You have them as fifteenth best team in the country. So I think that's where they were palm. When I look last night getting desouza back doesn't doesn't to me that very inclusion doesn't jump them from fifteen to five maybe maybe it makes fifteen to twelve or thirteen or so there are other factors that need to they need to get better with most notably the freshman Dotson Grimes just this is why we sometimes take Duke and Kentucky for granted because they can rely on their freshman to do so much and Kansas in many years, which had great ones. Don't get me wrong. But it's no it's no guarantee, and if they were playing more consistently than Kansas wouldn't be in this position. Let's talk about Baylor for a second fourteen six now thirty I can palm there on a five game winning streak. This is a team that started the season three. And two six four eight and five win one in the big twelve one and two in the big twelve. And now they're five and two in the big twelve tied atop the leaks. I know you talked to Scott drew after the the bears won by thirty at Oklahoma. Which is just ridiculous. Like, nobody in the country should win by thirty at Oklahoma. Not do not for Jinyan anybody. And yet bather goes to to Oklahoma wins by thirty. I texted with Scott late Monday. It really this is one of the I mean, we focused in recent podcast about the twists and turns of a season usually the turns in the wrong direction right now ole miss is that. I think all burn is probably that. But you talk about twists and turns turning upwards like really taking what looked like it was going to be a bad season. I mean, you can go into the archives of this podcast. And at one point we were discussing the big twelve and Baylor is probably going to finish last in the big twelve because it was a sensible thing to say at the time. And now we're sitting on January thirtieth Baylor's tie for first in in the big twelve really is a bit of off the radar story. But still a remarkable story in college basketball. Yeah, it is. I think Baylor had the most surprising January of any major conference team..

"One hundred fifty thousand dollars actually in total come on. Accurate. But I'm pretty sure. Yeah. Yeah. It's just it's outrageous. And yeah, the safety of our kids has become secondary tonight. Yeah, political. And and, you know, I'm grateful that you know, that there's now at least the governor who is going to move on some of this stuff. And I, you know, I don't know that much about Gregory, Tony. But I have heard nothing but good things about him. And he certainly an expert in active shooter situations, and that is a reality for Americans. And it is a reality for American parents, particularly those who lived through this, you know, the Marjory stoneman Douglas shooting a name, I would say that's a priority. But let me tell you about Runcie. And and the superintendent is not a enor- are the school board members friends of mine, but in particular. My husband had designed a bulletproof backpack that could be put on the back of a chair, and we went to to Robert Runcie a couple of years ago with this and said, you could outfit the entire school district from K through twelve for about two hundred thousand dollars, and we were told that that would scare parents, and therefore they weren't interested. Now think about that. There was a school board member there at the time that is good as well. And they declined something that for minimal cost would have been at least the beginning of a protection kids could kneel down behind those chairs or run with those vests in front of them and they walked away from it because they didn't want it to look bad. Right. And they don't want their schools to look like speaks to what you just mentioned if you're gonna go is that, you know, it's the reality. Yeah. I wish it wasn't the best. But it's the reality of the world we live in today in two thousand eighteen that's just we have to we have to deal with the situation as it is. We can't. You know, I guess. Cosmetics. I the way it looks to the outside. It's the safety comes first. That's right. My husband's not in law enforcement, the design was because we have grandchildren, and he said, you know, after the sandy hook shooting. He said there's got to be something that that can be done that at least would be a moderate amount of defense for these kids that they could be trained to hide behind. And if he could think of that house a school board member not thinking about it house up a sergeant or SRO or the sheriff himself not thinking about such things. It's an outrage and Robert Runcie and his promise program. I don't even have to tell you what I think about all that. Right. I mean, that's yeah. The diversionary programs. Are you know, they're only good as the people who are. You know, maybe maybe they could work if done correctly. Obviously, we want kids to be squad for life by on the stake. They may whether a teenager, but at the same time. Yep. Thirty mistakes in the case of the shooter thirty mistakes. I mean, come on. I don't think you'll ever I mean. So many things went wrong, and so many mistakes by every single department involved, the FBI, obviously, you know, the show the school district. I mean, it's almost as if you know, they they basically they were housing Amash. Oh, yeah. They knew about since middle school and every single person in that school. You know, do that this guy wants it happened? And let me tell you something I was on the air the day the shooting took place, and the the news was coming across the wire. And I got a text message on my cell phone from a friend's child who is now going she was at the university of Florida, but she had graduated the year before from Marjory stoneman Douglas, and she told me who who the shooter was and she was no she wasn't even in the school at the time. But she knew from there who this was everybody knew that's what makes me so angry. Yeah. It's just it's it's it's it's been stated, you know. This is the most preventable mass shooting ever history of our country. So it's just something that. Yeah. I I feel bad for you know, obviously. When you look at the incident, and you look at the first one to search for the third floor is the one that you know, is just. It should have never happened. It should never happen. There's so many different things that could have been done in those couple minutes in between and. Those are the. Those are the parents that I can't imagine you. Yeah. Shit obvious. Okay. With any of the, you know. Kids families of the victims. But still that they were just so many different things that could have been done. Couldn't you couldn't have scripted everything. They go along. Played out that way. So it's just you know. You guys all hang in there. And keep fighting the good fight. I mean, I see that. Andy Pollock has really you know, he is to turn this into his mission. You know, you lose a beautiful bright daughter like that. And you you don't want to see it happen to another family, and he has made this as you know, his life.
