The Durham Indictment Might Involve People in the White House

"This big German indictment We're now saying he's laid out a very well laid out conspiracy charge And it's very clear that this isn't going to just be like one indictment and that's it What I've been told from sources that I trust that this is going to involve top level people in the Clinton campaign Not only is this going to involve top level people in the Clinton campaign but this is going to involve possibly people even that were in The White House And at the FBI this is exactly why Mark said on Fox enough is enough You need to drag in Hillary Clinton before a grand jury because she knew about this too I mean enough is enough yes Enough is enough But Merrick Garland remember he declined to say when he was asked whether to keep the special counsel John Durham and that's the other reason why these indictments better come quick because once they see how successful they are and connecting these dots they're going to want this thing to go away Remember the attorney general's confirmation hearing and what he had to say When he was asked about the Durham special counsel John Durham He was asked hey like you're gonna keep this guy And you got a non answer From him I don't have any information about the investigation As I sit here today in the another one of the very first things I'm going to have to do is speak with mister Durham to figure out how his investigation is going I understand that he has been permitted to remain in his position and sitting here today I have no reason to think that that was not the correct decision And I suppose that would be an answer that he would only be removed for cause then would that be your position Well senator I really do have to have an opportunity to talk with him I have not had that opportunity He won't commit to that right In other words well you know the attorney general and maybe if he's doing good work that doesn't help my party man just kind of disappear you know As I said I don't have any reason from what I know now Which is really really very little to make any determination on that ground but I don't have any reason to think that he should not remain in place

Clinton-Linked Lawyer Charged for Lying in Trump-Russia Origins Probe

"Hillary Clinton want to set up Donald Trump for the fake Russian collusion thing Big break on Friday. Obviously, one of the lawyers involved in this propagating this collusion fairytale working with the Clintons gets indicted. Big story. Now we start to see what happened. It's clear the FBI was not fooled by the Russian collusion that they were part of it. They were just looking for someone to walk into their office who was credible enough that they could put the information down in a charging document or a fighter application and say, Hey, we heard this from Joey Bag of Donuts. He's credible. And what's the problem? The people who kept coming into the office in New York and London and elsewhere and saying, Hey, got information on these trump guys in the Russians all kept saying, Oh, and by the way, we're working with Hillary Clinton. Now I have no doubt the FBI knew that. But the FBI can't tell that to a judge, Judge judge Bag of doughnuts. We've got an affluent walking in here and excuse me in Africa, and he had a subject walk in and say he was working for Hillary Clinton. They don't like Donald Trump. He's colluding with the Russians. The judge would have laughed him out. So somehow it gets back to the Hillary Clinton team. Hey, listen. You gotta get somebody with bona fide. He's incredibility to go into the FBI telling this information even though it's fake and say, Hey, we're not working with anyone Just doing this out of the kindness of our hearts so we could swear to it. Is everybody digging, Jim? Is this making sense? Picking up what I'm putting down? So how do I know this folks Because the evidence is everywhere. So DOJ hears their release their indictment from last week of this lawyer, Michael Sussman, Right, pay very close attention to these dates. As alleged in the indictment on September 19th Michael Sussman met with FBI general counsel uh, in in Washington. Sussman had requested the meeting to provide the general counsel with certain data files and white papers that allegedly demonstrated covert communications channel between Trump and this Russian bank. Alfa Bank. It was all made up, folks. Assessment. This is the key line who had previously represented the DNC in connection with the Khyber, A cyber hack falsely stated to the FBI general counsel that he was not bringing these allegations to the FBI on behalf of any client. Then they don't wait. Where's the Kenny Belt? There? It is. The Kenny Bell gift from Kenny. He's a podcast listener. That's the souls. That's the story. Finally, in sun, September, mid September, September, 19th someone walks into the FBI who at least claims to not have any of these conflicts. Now the FBI is I go. We got it out. This is gonna be so great. Now we can go to a judge and say we want to spy on Trump and we could say we got information from this guy. Sussman and Sussman says he's not working for anybody. Isn't this so wonderful? Well, The problem is That John Dorms alleging that he was working for someone the entire time he was working with the Hillary Clinton

But that defenseman dwight free robert matt Bob sanders. i mean it was. It was a joke and yeah. It's all a terrible blur for me. Like four picks i think my rating was it like it was a disaster but i think that was a clear design i was i just turned twenty one. I mean i played only two years in college in a spread system now trying to plan their center. Probably this become this pro quarterback whatever that is and It was not good. I was definitely i. I felt unprepared. And it was a disaster and it showed. You've been a guy who had a four interception game really early after being a top. Pick your the number one overall pick of course. What do you counsel him. Hypothetically what do you stay to him after a game like this if you were to visit him. Alex smith kind of like a ghost of christmas future. What do you. What do you tell a kid who's very talented but also just had a day like this. I think exactly that. I mean i think you gotta go like for me. I just go to the third and fourth picks that he grew and pause before the snap and look look like jack. It's ten to three on this one. It's in the third quarter we got. There's a ton of football left. There's no reason to throw this ball up The way he did and then even the second one in the fourth grade. I mean i think it was thirteen to three. At that point.

"Committee. That is investigating the insurrection attack on the capital on january. Sixth wants the phone records from some pro. Insurrectionist republicans from that day and now minority leader. Kevin mccarthy and fellow republicans are lashing out earlier. This week bipartisan. select committee. Told thirty five. Private tech companies including apple facebook google and major cellphone carriers to preserve phone records which may be relevant to its investigation. Response mccarthy issued a pretty transparent threat to punish those same companies warning quote. A republican majority will not forget. And so we're left with scenario. Republicans don't seem willing to argue the merits of the case sort of brushing aside instead relying on this. Frankly thuggish rhetoric throwing out even the pretense of reasonable discourse order debate about the law in favor of just sheer intimidation. Politics and served as associate counsel during president barack obama's first term. He's the co founder and executive director of the nonprofit protect democracy which is working to combat the country's slide towards torturing him and he joins me. Now i have to say. I was even by the standards of our era i was. I was pretty shocked by that. Threat that just explicit threat in that kevin mccarthy statement. There's lots of folks saying that itself should trigger some kind of ethics investigation that it itself violate certain codes of conduct reaction to seeing. I think it's worse an ethics violation Mccarthy essentially did is something that i've been calling autocratic capture which is when authoritarian government actors. Us government power to bully private businesses and being their political allies. In this that political lackeys. It's something the mubarak regime did an egypt for decades. It's what vladimir. Putin doesn't russia. It's what talk carlson's hero Doesn't hungry it's not a dynamic that any american ceo should want to take hold here and if they give into this behavior. they're going to embolden. So i think what american private sector needs to be talking about is forming a lehto article five like mutual defense that if autocratic politicians gonna come after one come after all of them led mccarthy take on the entire american private sector.

The Importance of Having a Diverse, Inclusive Environment in Mental Health Facilities

"You mentioned the need for a diverse and inclusive experience. How is that important in mental health. So you know one of the things that we do is counselors is provide space for affirmation. So i see. I see you i hear you. I honor your story. That can be really hard to hear from a person that comes from a marginalized population as an african american woman myself. I can say that. It's hard for me to sit in what i can only call white spaces and feel like there is a shared or lived experience that is similar to mine in a way that helps them here. And see me for who i really am. So if i can offer if our organization can offer three clinicians of color and four clinicians who identify as part of the lgbtq community and three clinicians who have a religious background than we have all of these different spaces where the client who sits in front of us hopefully can feel not just affirmed but also aligned with the clinician. He was sitting in front of them. It's such an important part of the story to feel safe enough to tell the story. Sure the here about how most women are more comfortable with an elbow. Obgyn who's also on. And i would think the same would apply to any other status absolutely absolutely and i think it doesn't get said enough. You know when the counselors in your direct area are all that is there. And maybe they are all you know. Sis had white males in their mid thirties in there are no other options than. It's this decision. Do i go to counseling. And get the hell that i need. And maybe not feel as safe as i wanna feel or as heard or or aligned with my clinician or do i just not get counseling. It's in in that happens and mental health that happens in healthcare all of the time that people are making decisions to not get the help they need. Because they can't find a provider that aligns with who they are and their identity

"Does stealing an election constitute an impeachable offense. Does it rise to that level. I absolutely and i think that that's also a ground That joe biden a should be impeached when we look at the All of the evidence that has come out across multiple states and especially as these audits are ongoing and many state legislatures. Now are leading efforts to de certify their electoral votes obviously a joe biden was constitutionally installed. What i mean by that is that congress did count the electoral votes on certifications that purported to be accurate but when the state legislatures have gone back and actually had time to review this even though of course they refused to act in the very short period of time. that i had as an advocate for president trump and of course his legal counsel In that short timeframe Up and before january sex when they were counted when the state legislatures and if they do ultimately decertify this and say yeah this was a false assessment and these these votes were not counted. According to our state law then absolutely congress must act on the understanding that now we have an improperly constitutionally installed president and i do believe that that is grounds for impeachment whether or not we have a specific link or nexus to joe biden. Whether or not he knew this was going on. Whether or not he was a participant congress will still have to deal with us and fashion a constitutionally appropriate remedy to the people who are like.

"As somebody who's written pasta histories of prior presidents as somebody who's written a present history of the forty fifth president when he was still in the white house. What would be the sagacious. What would be the wise way for president trump to react to recent events. He's not allowed on social media. Does his choon change with regard to international affairs. What what would you counsel. Should he call you up. Oddly enough and i guess. There's lots of precedent for Historical initiatives producing exactly the opposite consequences. To what is aimed for but this imposed silence on on trumpet as as even he. I think has acknowledged as actually been somewhat to his benefit. i don't know how clearly aware he is of. Just how tiring fatiguing a great. Many people felt his years as president were even those who supported him and agreed with them in policy terms. Wanted to rest from him. Being sort of in your face every day and tweeting out all night and And as he has observed voluntarily or otherwise comparative silence The democrats have been allowed to steal in their own juice and the focus as it should be is on the new administration. And how are they doing and they're not doing very well. And so this takes people's attention away from what has been as you know surpassed we've often spoken of it for the last five years. The only argument the democrats have had which is trump hate. I even a couple of weeks. Watching i rarely do this. Watching don lemon only could do was to bring back tapes for no plausible pretexts current affairs at all of past things that president trump said and misrepresented them such as That he had ever said that people should ingest lay sold fight. Kovin mean say that he said with the principle of cleaning up cleanser On the on the affected plays with the application of heat. It was there. He asked to the surgeon general on camera and he possible application of that in this case he didn't mean as nancy said a bottle of lysol some similar product and and start drinking. And that's what that that's kind of publicity. It was getting and When they can't go to that there's just absolutely no excuse for dragging it nonsense like that militias nonsense fiction people focus on. Who is there now and how were they doing.

Why is there a criminal investigation of they have a hell of a lot more than they ever had on Trump, which was nothing. Yeah, And here's the thing Mark. It's incumbent upon people in Capitol Hill Republicans to call this stuff out. Joe Biden is soft on China. There are all kinds of commercial ties between the Biden family and China that still exist to this day. By the way, Uh, there are the financial ties between Russia and the Biden family. Um, he has certainly taken a softer course towards Mr Putin and Russia and than Donald Trump ever did. These are questions and they need to be called out. You've got to lay it out for the American people specifically. And ask for an accounting. It's not enough to say you're concerned about the shift in policy. You have to explain to people what these ties are and explain to people. The the the fact that Hunter Biden himself Is that the family faces a problem of compromise or compromising information. Um, and I think if you do that the American people get it they understand, And I think it would make a sea change in terms of the attitudes that a lot of people have right now, which is either they feel kind of defeated. They feel kind of detached. Um, they need to read your book for one thing, But they also need to be informed specifically about the Biden family connections overseas, because that's a central part.

this happen jeff the president said the position of attorney general was his most important appointment and that sessions had quote let him down on unquote contrasting him to eric holder and robert kennedy sessions recalled that the president said to him quote you were supposed to protect to me unquote or words to that effect the president returned to the consequences of the appointment and said quote everyone tells me if you get one these independent counsels it ruins your presidency it takes years and years and i won't be able to do anything this is the worst thing thing that ever happened to me here's matt sabotage ski of the washington post trump learns of his appointment because sessions happens to just be over at the white house rod rosenstein call sessions and says hey i've just appointed robert mueller sessions goes in and tells the president and the president just blow what's up you know this is a disaster he blames it personally on sessions forget the rod rosenstein is the guy who appointed him he's tracing this back to the recusals sort of deliver there's a profanity laced tirade about the effect this is going to have in his presidency the president then told sessions he should resign as attorney general sessions agreed submit his resignation and left the oval office here's mike schmidt of the new york times trump recognized the severity of immediately instead i'm fucked and has this showdown with sessions in which he basically get sessions to resign sessions essentially quits and trump is blaming concessions for d. appointment of molly rica sessions recused himself from the russian investigation and trump things at the refusal is the original senior that puts them on the path and trump clearly is keying in on the most important thing here he clearly gets the chain of events that got him to this and the problems had a special counsel could bring being in how if it starts looking at one thing it could end up looking at another and how it really could way down a presidency he ends up asking for sessions to resign and it's not just that once but sort of multiple times that moment when muller has appointed you know post recusal trump just really blamed sessions for everything that would come to happen in particularly muller's point it's difficult to overstate how upset the president is at the prom aspect of a special counsel investigation hope pick saw the president shortly after sessions departed and described the president as being extremely upset by the special counsels appointment hick said she had only seen the president like that one other time when the access hollywood tape came out during the campaign meanwhile the investigation is ramping up and the white house is instructed not to destroy any relevant documents the next day may eighteenth two thousand seventeen f. b. i. agents delivered to magana preservation notice that disgust an investigation related tacoma's termination and and directed the white house to preserve all relevant documents that same day sessions offers his resignation on may eighteenth sessions final allies resignation letter that stated quote pursuant to our conversation of yesterday and at your request i hereby offer my resignation unquote sessions wrote the letter to the white house and handed it to the president the president put the resignation letter in his pocket and asked session several times whether he wants did to continue serving as attorney general sessions ultimately told the president he wanted to stay but it was up to the president the president said he wanted session chance to stay at the conclusion of the meeting the president shook sessions hand but did not return the resignation letter i think nobody in trump's orbit actually wanted sessions to resign but ultimately sessions does what he's asked and he gives the president a letter by that time the president is a little calmer and he just pockets the thing but now this is kind of remarkable right the president is walking around with this leverage on his attorney general like at any moment he can pull out this resignation letter and all of his advisors realize that is just a poisonous situation that's not how the president attorney general relationship can work at least president trump has to accept this or reject this so day kind of desperately tried to give him to give this coming up white house chief of staff reince priebus and chief strategist steve bannon are concerned about the president holding onto the resignation letter they think it looks like trump has leverage over DOJ which you can use as a quote shock collar anytime he wants the president keeps sessions's resignation letter for eleven days on may nineteenth two thousand seventeen the president left for a trip to the middle east hicks recalled that on the president's flight from saudi arabia to tel aviv the president pulled sessions's resignation letter from his pocket showed it to a group of senior advisors and ask them what he should do about it it was not until may thirtieth three days after the president returned from the trip that the president returned the letter two sessions with the not nations saying not accepted eventually he does return with just a handwritten note that says not accepted though it's not as if that resolves the matter i mean later on sessions will actually be walking around with a resignation letter that he has penned because he never knows when the act wchs might fall so even though that leverage literally in trump's pocket is gone sessions knows in the back of his mind any day could be my last muller paints extraordinarily detailed scenes about what's happening in the white house at the time it's worth pausing for a moment to explain how it is that muller oh so much about what's going on inside the oval office the answer is the white house counsel don mcgann tells him all about it reporting today that white house counsel on again has given three voluntary interviews to investigators totaling around thirty hours in all here's my let's mcgann's cooperation dates back to a decision that's made by the president john dowd and ty cobb in the summer of twenty seventeen muller has just been appointed the president has hired down in cobb to be his lawyers on this issue and cobb in doubt have sold the president on a strategy of cooperation and the sooner they cooperate the sooner the investigation will be over and that this will via quick thing off the bat muller wants to talk to the people closest to the president the lawyers in the cels office including mcgann it was highly unusual thing because most presidents have sort of fought to stop their lawyers from speaking with investigators and right off the bat you had trump handing mcgann over mcgann becomes suspicious is it that he's allowing him to speak with muller trump obviously knew all the different things that had gone on between them political pressure on him to really get to the bottom of whether trumpet obstructed justice began thinks he may be getting set up by doubt and cobb here to maybe take the fall he he doesn't understand it so mcgann does exactly.

"Kind note that the general thrust of Cohen lying to congress in accordance with or to support an advance Trump's agenda, her Cohen's legal memo is not in dispute the source disputed, the further more specific idea that Trump issued and memorialized repeated direct instructions and joy Reed that part about memorialize would be. I think a reference in the BuzzFeed article too. There is supporting documentation either from texts or emails to what was was reporting that the president basically ordered Michael Cohen to commit perjury as well as one line in the BuzzFeed story, where they characterize something that Cohen allegedly said to the Muller Tina, the Muller team is very tight lipped they do not leak, and you know, one could assume that maybe what they're also trying to project and telegraph is do not write a story in which you're projecting that we have now that members of the Muller team have leaked information. Buzzfeed, right. I mean when when Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in the southern district of New York, he said it himself as he stood up and spoke to the judge that he lied specifically about this Moscow Trump Tower project, this is something that is already on the record. It's something. He's already admitted to in the southern district of New York. So I think I with Ken, and that, you know, I think everyone is now kind of hair on fire about the. The denial by these special counsel's office, but I kind of try to reading it narrowly until we know more. So we know that there are a bunch of federal officials in Michael Collins life. There is the special counsel's office, Robert Muller. And then there is separately year-old office the US attorney's office in the southern of New York where he has already pleaded guilty. He has already been sentenced there, Donald Trump has been identified. They're in effect as a as an unindicted co conspirator referred to in the documents as individual one one of the of blooming theories of the hour. This evening is that these federal officials federal officials quoted in this are from the southern district of New York as opposed to mothers team does that. When you read the BuzzFeed article does that read as possible to now first of all let me be clear about something people are using this term, the southern district of New York that to me and to. Almost any prosecutor defense. Lawyer anyone working in the system means the US attorney's office. Okay. I can sit here right now. And tell you that there is less than zero chance.

"So now, let's hone in on what the supreme court has said about the distinction between principal and inferior officers on the Senate floor. Senator Mike Lee invoked Justice, Antonin Scalia as dissenting opinion in the Morrison and Olsen case. It was a seven to one case. Justice Scalia alone objected that the independent counsel statute was unconstitutional as a violation of the appointments clause and separation of powers. The majority of the court disagreed and Senator Lee predicted that the current court would agree with Justice Scalia. Not the rank was court, and then we have a case called Edmund from nineteen Ninety-seven where Justice Scalia said that there were two essential criteria for inferior officer status. Whether the officers work is directed and supervised at some level by others who were appointed by presidential nomination with the advice and consent of the Senate, and whether the officer has no power to render a final decision on behalf of the United States unless permitted to do. So by other executive officials, Eric if you would please tell us the essence of the majority reasoning in Morrison, Nelson of Justice, Scalia's dissenting, opinion and Morrison Olsen and Justice clears gloss in the case. Well, the the majority so let's back up a little bit the independent counsel statute. Created this officer known as the independent counsel at that time that officer was given by congress many more powers than with the special counsel has now, of course, key point that will probably come back to the independent counsel is very roughly planted by judges, and it had a great deal of independence. The independent counsel. Lists was challenged in the nineteen eighties. As you said, and the majority opinion is a fairly kind of pride Matic pity. They just say independent counsel, conservative -portant purposes. The statute of the way came after Watergate. The needed independently may well, aided independent council prevent presidents high level ficials from engaging wrongdoing or punishing them, if they do so squeezed descent, which is very famous at least parts of it are quite striking well-written, basically what school years that was the president's had the executive branch the executive branch foods or supposedly includes all the people who gauge executive types of action, and he argues that prosecution is a typically executive type of action. And so therefore, the president has to have control over any type of prosecution, but the independent counsel has it was probably control the president Torney general did have some control over the independent counsel. But it was limited. And so therefore, the independent counsel was. Was constitutional. That view was rejected as you said by seven of Justice has win. This wasn't wasn't sitting. Generally speaking, we think of one person to send has not controlling. Morrison verses also was ever tried by supreme court. But there was this later case, you mentioned Edmund in wishlist Justice Scalia was allowed to write majority because the court agreed with them. But all the really did was I dunno adult of flesh color to the standard of Morrison versus Olsen, and it is versus Olsen had kind of confusing discussion of how he distinguished between an inferior and principal officer Justice Scalia internet, but maybe simplifies simplifies the standard a little bit by referring to these two elements that you mentioned whether the work is directed and supervised by others level. Whether the officers power to render a final decision, so Joshua how much turns on Morrison Vilson, which senators coons Lee are going to be debating on the floor of the Senate, given the gloss in the. The Edmund case does this court need formerly to overturn Morrison and Olson to clarify the distinction between principal and inferior officers and one you tell the listeners how you think has the better argument in how the distinction should be defined. Sure, I think one's view of Morrison both its merits and its current status. Probably tells you a lot about one's view on the the Bill that's being debated. Although it may ultimately not be determinative of it. And I should be clear. This bring core has warned lower courts repeatedly that until and unless the supreme court says a given case has been overruled by it that case remains to some degree with some scope good law so to speak. So this means that if I were district judge and something identical to the independent counsel statute were passed Amaro by congress signed by the president came before me..

"To interfere with the twentieth sixteen presidential election robber mojo the special counsel just indicted twelve russian intelligence officers and directly accuse them of doing exactly what putin said he didn't do is interfering in the election eleven defendants are charged with conspiring to hack into computers steal documents and release those documents with the intent interfere in the election and muller did it in a way that very different from what the us government has done before where they say oh we have high confidence that russia did this what muller did was he put out an indictment and said here the names of the russian intelligence officers and here's how they did the hacking units engaged an active cyber perations to interfere in the twenty sixteen presidential election there was one unit that engaged in active cyber operations by stealing information and a different unit that was responsible for disseminating stolen information it was the most detailed official accounting of the russian hacking that occurred during the two thousand sixteen presidential election and muller dropped it right as president trump is about to meet with putin so it is going to be different because if because harder for ladimir putin to deny it and if he does deny it i mean it just becomes so much harder for donald trump to say yeah i believe him and what kind of detail do we have from these indictments that help us understand how the hacking up ration worked with a remarkable document because it it tells the story i mean a lot of indictments can be a little hard to read this is a pretty narrative indictment so it talks about how on april twelve twenty sixteen the conspiracy these of the russian intelligence officers use stolen credentials of democratic congressional campaign committee employees to access the teachable network i use a scheme known as spear phishing which involves sending misleading email messages and tricking the users into disclosing their passwords and security information one of the emails had a link to an attached spreadsheet and it looked like pulling data it was called a hillary clinton favorable rating xl fx but what you were actually getting is you were getting a piece of malicious code that was called x agent but offense covertly monitored the computers and planted hundreds of files containing malicious computer code and stole emails and other documents in for you'd be going about your business doing clinton campaign stuff or china elect democrats to congress and the russian government would be logging every one of your key strokes they could go in and they steal additional passwords so you know you're they're logging into your account and because every one of your key strokes is recorded the russians were then able to use that account so sort of like ping pong into another account and then do the same thing over there and the got the emails and addition to releasing documents directly to the public the defendants transferred stolen documents to another organization that has not identified by name the indictment and they used that organization as a pass through to release the documents and discuss the timing of the release an attempt to enhance the impact on the election and so when these emails started to come out people were fitting their head up and saying hey i'm interested in reading those so journalists were doing that roger stone longtime advisor to president trump the indictment says that a candidate for congress who's not identified also reached out and it was trying to get these emails so this was wildly successful from a intelligence operational standpoint because everybody wanted what these intelligence officers were handing out matt is one of the things that these new indictments make very clear in naming names that these were not just random russian hackers these were russian government officials and therefore kind of undeniably tied in to putin that's exactly right the intention here is to not just say it was russia in the generic sense and not even to say it was russian intelligence officials in the generic sense i mean one paragraph after another in this indictment says here's this first defendant here's a second defendant and they both worked for the russian military unit twenty six one sixty five here's the address to where they're assigned here's the month in year that they came onto the job here's what their title was to mitri baden assistant head of department in around twenty sixteen he another supervise the co conspirators to target the deep triple see the dnc and others if is a deeply documented indictments and is it unusual for him to.
