So it's been 13 years since R. Kelly was last on trial and he was acquitted of child pornography charges. What is the main difference in this case? So, yeah, if you think back to that 2008 trial That was a very narrow scope right. That focused on one tape and one alleged victim, who you know, didn't testify, and the alleged victim's family didn't testify either. Right? So there wasn't a lot to work off of them. From the prosecutor standpoint, here, it's much different. The breath of the case is much larger. The case includes a number of alleged victims, some of whom are expected to actually speak in front of court throughout this trial and it and it goes beyond just like just one thing, right. It covers that trafficking, kidnapping forced labor. Bribery right and and the wreck and the overarching racketeering charge. You know, there's a lot more evidence to use and there's a lot more options for the prosecution to go with and let me ask you about the racketeering. Charge, which seems to be one of

"R and B superstar is in court this week in Brooklyn for the first of two federal trials, and we need to take a moment to state in advance that this is, of course, a story that deals with sexual and physical abuse. Kelly faces multiple charges of sexual abuse against young women and girls as well as trafficking and racketeering.

Jim, I want to start with you because part of what led to the trial, which is getting underway right in this Brooklyn courtroom, um, started when The Chicago Sun Times first published allegations that R. Kelly had engaged in sex with minors. Can you talk a little bit about his status at that time? In terms of when the allegations began to surface Well, R Kelly was the dominant voice in R and B for generation 100 million albums sold. He was tried once in 2000 and eight after being indicted in 2002 Very narrow charges. One girl 1 14, Year old on one video tape. She didn't testify. Her parents didn't testify and he was acquitted.

You know, he is being charged with his entire 30 year career being a criminal enterprise that enabled him to pursue this sexual victimization of so many young women and to threaten, coerce and bribe those who bravely spoke out against him.

Georgia prosecutor investigating Trump's call to Raffensperger

"In addition to the events of january sixth. The article mentioned just one other specific event quote president. Trump's conduct on january six twenty twenty one followed his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the twenty twenty presidential election. Those prior efforts included a phone call on january second during which president trump urged the secretary of state of georgia. Brad ravensburger to find enough votes. To overturn georgia presidential election results. President trump threatened secretary burger if he failed to do so. I know that that thing in georgia that little episode of attempted election interference by donald trump has been swallowed up by history already. This phone call was eclipsed by the violent attack on the us capitol just four days later. It's like how the resignation of vice president. Spiro agnew got swallowed up in history because watergate forced the resignation of president nixon right after it and so when i wrote a podcast and wrote a book about spiro. Agnew people are like. Who's that guy. He wouldn't believe what a big scandal that was for a minute until a much bigger scandal eclipsed it and made us all forget the earlier one when really really life changing terrible thing happens. It tends to blot out the memory of other really bad stuff. That might have happened just before this and so it is with this georgia call. But there's a reason that this georgia called this january second phone call is the one other specific event that the author author the impeachment resolution decided to include in their charges against former president trump. Because it's because before the january sixth violent attack on the us capitol members of congress. Were already considering a second impeachment of president trump just for that goal because at that point before island attack on the us capitol. His hour-long phone call to georgia secretary of state pushing and threatening george official to try to get the election results overturned there before the attack on the capital that was president trump's most egregious and blatant act of trying to apparently criminally alter and mess with the election results to try to hold onto power. And he not only did it. It was all on tape. So what are we going to do here. But i only need eleven thousand votes found us. I need eleven thousand. Give me a break for you. Know what they did. And you're not reporting it. That's a that's a criminal. That's a criminal offense and you can't let that happen. That's that's a big risk to you and to ryan you lawyers. That's a big risk is not fair to take it away from us like this and it's got to be very costly in many ways and i think you have to say that you're gonna reexamine it and you can reexamine but reexamine it with people that wanna find answers not people that don't wanna find answers. You can't let it happen and you are letting it happen all you know i mean i'm notifying you. You're letting it happen. So all i wanna do is i just wanna find Eleven thousand seven hundred eighty loads. I want you to find exactly enough votes to declare me the winner of the election in your state. And if you don't that's a big risk to you. I'm notifying you all criminal offense by you say you have reexamined. Didn't i actually one or else. And when president trump made that call on january second four days before the attack on the capital he hit already called. Georgia's governor to pressure him. To overturn the state's election results to trump also personally called a level official in the georgia secretary of state's office. The guy in charge of elections investigations and spent a long time. Personally pressuring that guy to quote find the fraud that would result in overturning. The election results in georgia and declaring trump the winner while president trump was making all of these calls personally the top federal prosecutor in atlanta. Us attorney in atlanta resigns under direct pressure from the trump white house because trump felt and communicated to that the us attorney that he was not doing enough to find that non-existent fraud that would somehow allow the overthrowing of the election results. One of the things that made the series of escalating interventions georgia's election so remarkable. Was that it. It was just also blatantly illegal. Not just impeachable but illegal like go to jail illegal. It is against the law in georgia to solicit someone to commit election fraud state election officials to find you exactly the number of votes you need to turn the election result the other way threatening collections officials that they to change vote counts in your favor or else would surely seem to fall under that statute will now even as donald trump's second impeachment trial unfolds in the us senate and what a spectacle it is and that trial unfolds on an article of impeachment that specifically references trump's threatening call to george a secretary of state while nell a high profile state prosecutor in georgia district attorney the largest county in the state fulton county has now opened a criminal investigation that centers on that phone call district attorney. There has sent this letter to george secretary of state governor lieutenant governor and attorney general extracting them all to preserve any and all records related to the two thousand twenty election quote. This letter is notice that the fulton county district attorney has opened an investigation into attempts to influence the administration of the twenty twenty georgia general election. This investigation includes but is not limited to potential violations of georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies conspiracy racketeering violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the elections administration quote. This matter is of high importance. Excuse me the this matter is of high priority. The next fulton county grand jury is due to convene in march.

"Lawmakers in ohio are looking at repealing. A nuclear power plant bailout. That was passed last year. Federal investigators are linking the passage of the bill to the biggest corruption case in the state's history. Here's ohio public. Radio's andy chow. Ohio sweeping energy law. That bailed out two of the state's nuclear power. Plants is now tied to a sixty one million dollar bribery scheme. It's an alleged web of conspiracy and tangling the speaker of the house a huge energy company and the state's top utilities regulator. Let's go back to two thousand seventeen. The us department of justice says that's when republican state representative. Larry householder hashed out of the utility company. Not directly named but believed to be first energy. That plan was a quid pro quo. Householder would get money to help him. Become speaker and i energy would get a bailout of its nuclear power plants from twenty seventeen to twenty. Eighteen householder was backed by millions of dollars and so called dark money us to elect his allies in house races around the state fast forward to january twenty nineteen. Those allies elect householder speaker. And he then rolls out a plan for a billion dollar. Nuclear power plant bailout. The money coming from ratepayers. Rachel bells a ratepayer advocate with ohio consumers. Power alliance says something smelled fishy. It seemed an awful lot. Like a real setup. It was never more apparent than eighty six and even heading into it that we were david and goliath that bill each b. six attracted national attention because it cut green energy standards at a time when many states were doing the opposite increasing their mandates for renewable energy five months later a mysterious campaign group called generation now spent millions on mailers and ads supporting the bill. Hosing reform killing jobs and swimming. Catherine tersser of common cause. Ohio says the group wouldn't disclose where the money was coming from. And that makes it hard on voters if they can't understand how our legislators are making decisions or who is attempting to influence elections or to influence the way we feel about public policy. Well then we're left in the. That mystery was solved in july when the scandal broke where today to announce the arrest of larry householder to speaker of the house. It turns out the fbi had been following the bailout bill saga from the beginning and says it has evidence to prove householder was taking bribes from first energy funneled through the group generation now in october. A lobbyist for first energy pleaded guilty to racketeering charges. And just hours later. I energy fired. It's ceo chuck jones and last month. Ohio's public utilities commission chair. Sam randazzo resigned after the fbi searched his home despite the scandal. Many ohio legislators. Still defend the nuclear bailout. Republican state representative dickstein says it saves jobs and cuts down on carbon stein argues that its benefits outweigh the scandal or those folks involved. They'll pay a price for any wrongdoing. That all the way comes through the court process. Ohio lawmakers are now considering repealing or freezing the bailout. If that's not done by the end of this month new charges will appear on ratepayers bills to start. Funding the bailout. Meanwhile larry householder maintains his innocence and while removed as house.

Aron Kader ski ABC news New York your next news update coming at seven I'm will Clark news radio eight forty WHAS Kentucky and is breaking news weather and traffic station I am going to get a little controversial issue here so this Republican candidate for Mississippi is right around the governor been accused of sexism every band of female political reporter from going on a campaign trip without a male chaperone the reason for the chaperone was that the campaign fell pictures of the two on the campaign trail could be used by rivals to smear him and hits an extramarital affair and may be a little what's he doing on this campaign trail that would create photos that would be in this that could purge your produce this scenario that he's swelling Hey started earlier this week Robert foster's campaign denied requests from Larson Campbell reporter of Mississippi today to shadow him on the trail ahead of next month's primary election unless she was accompanied by a male colleague I miss Campbell says she was shocked when she was told buster would not cooperate without a male colleague present because he had initially seemed interested when she approached him about reporting on the story and they had established a working real relationship here's what else she had to say hello my only looks improper in this context if you view her as a sexual being first and I was a reporter second well I understand what you saying there I don't necessarily agree from this standpoint there are many management styles techniques where they say you should have an open door policy maybe with everybody I don't know it is wrong is is a bad thing Mike pence took some heat for this kind of thing it's not like it's not that you look at someone else nexus necessarily in a sexual context is more of protecting oneself in these cases let me give an example all right at our church we never have a child with a closed door with any of our people that work with children we have always have two people at least if if we have to have a discussion re or your your cassock someone or single a song that nature it is a church setting but I know of a lot of situations where when someone is he being terminated or they're going through a contract or whatever they may have a witness in their male or female of with you know said male or female that's being interviewed or or talk to or whatever the case may be I I I I have questions about the the logistics of the Mississippi campaign thing which is the on the things you talked about the open door policies with kids and managers and whatnot that's that'll make sense no issue there but with the most political campaigns there either in kind of those airport shuttle style buses where you know the fifteen eighteen passenger whatever they are vans or they've chartered a bus of some sort or something it's not like you're all crammed into the back of an eighty seven escort he also we're all like you know in some sort of you don't fret trip across the state the there's typically other press aides their staffers well I mean it's like if he's going to do that that's right that he could have someone on his staff there he's right here in this scenario where is he in this reporter just gonna go solo across the state or in the district or whatever describes his thought you know what I mean at first he agreed to it so something tells me that someone in his campaign somebody's area of some up to a year and into your point you could have one of your own campaign people there during the entire interview right you could have your press secretary that's a good point I mean governor Bevin doesn't go anywhere without a press secretary miss Campbell said I was shocked that this was a deal breaker that my being a woman was such a deal breaker she said it made me mad I'm showing up I'm doing everything right I'm trying to do my job and your sexual Ising me how's that non sexist so that's what you look at look at the presidential campaigns there are men following around camallo Heris all day every day no one saying a word about it there's because there's press aides there well that's it that's really what did the same thing here eyes that's what to do to done that's a very well stated our it's I mean I understand his concerns of politics and everybody uses everything against you I get what he's concerned about the hash tag me too thing but he's probably going okay well is way beyond again this goes back to if you're responsible human being who can keep your hands to yourself and act like a proper human then you don't have to worry about me too because you didn't do anything and that be all and then again if you're telling me that you don't have anyone else on your staff that's going to go with you on this camp while I'm writing I'd that that's I've never seen that are best painted it ever who's gone solo knocking door to door an aide with them of some sort yeah I I I think it what you do is you have to press secretary there during the interview alright just a model is not going to have to be a press secretary grab an intern from the office somebody just somebody that there's a buffer between the reporter in you I'm Tony Cruz he's will Clark Kentucky has more news when we return Louisiana governor is seeking.

"Way top forty stations rotated records that you had things breaking in bear capacity where you had the lemon heads in the breeders and the dinosaur juniors. And yet all these bands that were breaking in in a way where they'd be like busband video and. You could have a back and rage machine right next to each other. It didn't it was. There was no there was not an actual. It was just the alternative John which is huge and things but things would break regionally. So like like lemon heads belly Juliana Hatfield was all in that similar time period. Yeah. But but I love the job because I feel like I got to be in. So in the mix in a really meaningful way. And I I really loved my bosses, and I really loved my co workers, and I love the department the people that because I was working with you know, I was working with like the mid level people in the other departments. They were like my age, and we were all like again. Right. So I have had a great boss above me. And then I had a great the the boss of hers who brought me in. But so I had really really wonderful role models and people do go to add. But then I had like this crew of people to strategize with try to break these young bands. And it was really exciting and wonderful. And I feel like it was. It was a great environment to try new things and learn new things, but also understand how businesses work and why sacrifices have to be made. And why things are going to happen where you're going to get you're gonna get screwed. But the bottom line means that we have to spend the money on this thing because we spent too much money on this thing that you learned a lot of business. Sounds great. But all of that of that music at the remember hearing it on the radio and the radio did never sounded like that before. I'm really changed. Change, the culture fashion. It changed the way people talk to change a lot did. And it was right? Like that was the that was sort of the peak before the end do. Yeah. It really was right. I feel like oh like people have better taste or I'm really good. No. You know, what he know? What it was? It wasn't the people have better as I'm really good. It was it was somebody's finally understanding the value of the kind of music, I love. Okay. That's that's because it is because it used to be like alternative bands. Like, they were they'd be like maybe selling twenty thousand units. And then once this wave came through, and it was really like nirvana that really fucking knock down that door, smells, like teen spirit. And all of a sudden it was millions of units. And you couldn't get the CDs into the record stores fast enough. It all of a sudden created this environment where it validated a whole genre and sub-genre that had been sort of ostracized down to these tertiary like college radio little markets because people started rotating music and making hit that of alternative songs as opposed it being like, Nevada. Von Dame radio. All of a sudden program started rotating songs the way top forties. Do you would make hits? If you were sell records in college radio is really strange to listen to to to know of bleach to know of nirvana to and then all of a sudden here teen spirit on college radio on your shitty..

"Great freshman year at Stanford. You're not gonna get trampled under it. All you're going to be so great at USC film school. When you make a movie, even though your best friend is making on his phone, and we'll probably be a better director than anybody. That went to the school. I mean, that's the other crazy thing about college is the idea that like I mean, it's there's many many reasons to go to college. There's an the least of which is the education. And and really I mean, it really is about about a Belay like it's like five jobs that you go to college for and everything else. It's right. It's right here. Exactly everything else is. I was a whatever major Fleming. Accounted now, I know people that have that exact story. I majored in business. Sure. Marketing communication's Angeles, everyone I met a kid. He's twenty four years old his he started doing comedy when it was fourteen and his father, his father, his father was the feature act up in when I was just up sending valves past weekend. And he. Got amazing grades went to NYU kept doing comedy in New York, but decide to get a business gree and now at the Irap alleged twenty four he's decided just to work in tech. So he went to school for what he wanted to. He went to the school for what he wanted to. Thing decided he wanted to do something completely different. That isn't even his degrees degree wasn't business. He's intact now. And he lives in any was really really break kit and very funny. I'm very sweet. And I told him I said he said if you want me to talk to either of your kids about college about it. I'd love to talk to him about it. Because I had an amazing experience. I don't know that I had to go and spend all that money. I also don't think what you go there for will. That be all what I mean. I went to I mean, despite the truth disappointment, I went to the university of Oregon for business degree and play rugby, and I left with a feeder degree, and I ended up being in the field that I chose. But I have tried to use your degree to my degree meant nothing. Yeah. Joined improv group in province would stand up at one one. Yeah. Exactly. He didn't actually take your degree and try to go. Not been a day where I've had where I've put my I put it out. But but I wouldn't have I wouldn't be the person. I am if I'd gone to college dot in theater department, and the experiences things that may July up inside from the people the people, that's what I love. That's what I keep thinking. You know, that is the thing with true. It's like none of this architecture. The where the is located and then that's gonna mean shit. You're gonna meet three or four people that will blow your minds in. You're gonna have extreme you're gonna meet some people that you didn't know and experiences. You didn't know you could have. I mean, I think it's the greatest I feel like we should everyone should be able to go to school. Everyone should be able to have that opportunity or you know, but also colleges were just they were they were of a luxurious add on when I was a kid really a lot of people didn't go to college. I mean, more than half the graduating class. Probably didn't maybe. Yeah. I mean, a lot of people got jobs and people went to the army and people went and interesting pretty much. I feel like pretty much every everybody I knew when you lived in. People were a lot of people who are in Los Angeles. A lot of people didn't go to college. They went right into a lot of people. I know like, no. After their Barbas on stint, of course. But they went into like, internships record labels, or on film sets or not everybody entertainment. But they they went into the family business below line show business, which is very entry late where you where you can only have the only carpenter..

"I'm guessing I don't know. But it I three of the name. I mean, I know like one I know one of the people it's just from like the dance world. And then I know the two actresses, but I didn't my first instinct not knowing a whole lot about the story was I think we get into a weird news cycle that is about distraction, and this is an example of elite people being underhanded. And I I I don't know who all of these people are. So I don't know how accurate that. That's how that's how it feels. And it's it's just something to point to Jesse small like see what these people are doing, and they're liars, and they're this and that and look at all. Yeah. Nothing's. Enough already have so much privilege, but Jesse different than that. This feels not different than the privilege of Trump's it doesn't feel different than the privilege of the Kardashians. It doesn't feel different than the privilege of all those assholes who went to fire island fire. Right. I mean, that's just that's straight up that straight up that whole thing was Instagram. It was a photo of something people got excited about and pay billions of dollars to go be with other people's from photos. And it wasn't there when they got there. It's such a parable. But the the Jesse small thing. Fortunately, it just became about that dude, it doesn't it doesn't say anything about African Americans. It doesn't say anything about homosexuals doesn't. But it can be used as an example. And I feel like he's so fucking weird that you're like most ex fill in the blank to whatever. Are not most people are not like that. You know, most hate crimes are real most, you know, Like like. that. But I think some people know that. But I I just don't have that much faith in general. So I know too much what dumb people think because they have a voice I can say to somebody will look he did it in if one person did it. That's fair assumption someone else's done it, man. That story. I think pretty easily has I watched a guy breakdown him explaining how he was beat up by the cops and the press, and he just broke down every single thing that he said, and he goes this. Nobody punches you in the face, and then gets backed up, and then decides to stop nobody you get punched like bringing on this is the fake story from the from jump street from jump street if you were a good cop. He'd be like what? Nope. No, not re-. Did they actually good police work in that? And that they were suspected the beginning..

And I think it's really, and I hope it, but I also think it's going to it'll shake out pretty quickly. Because I think if if that's how kids that are in college that locked what is the school. Everything comes back to roost comes back to roost. And if and if they didn't know what was happening I feel badly for them. Their parent, but that's going to be a punishment for their parents and their parents pay.
