Former Russia special counsel Robert Mueller counters criticism by a top aide

"Former special counsel Robert Mueller is pushing back against criticism of the Russia investigation by a former aide who says a special counsel could have Dunmore in a statement today, Mueller says, in part when important decisions had to be made, I made them I did so as I've always done without any interest in currying favor or fear of the consequences. I stand by those decisions and buy the conclusions of our investigation. The rare public statement from Mueller is his first since he testified before Congress in July of last year. It's a response to a new book by Andrew Weissmann that suggest the team did not aggressively pursue some angles out of concern that President Trump could fire them and close down the operation.

Meet Jerri Evans, The Turning Natural Juice Bar Founder Transforming Lives in the Black Community

"So welcome to the guest chair Jerry. Thank you for having me I'm so happy to have you here as I mentioned I was in the juice bar on h street the other day, and I was like this is so yummy. This is amazing I'd love to know more about your story. So first and foremost what was your career path before becoming the owner of turning natural juice bars. So prior to juicing, I was an air nautical engineer I worked for a major company which is probably the main companies in the Department of Defence Specialty was F twenty, two fighter jets. So Bess, literally my background I didn't WanNA been engineer at first I wanted to go to fashion but we had a career fair in highschool they separated all the boys of jobs that they believe men become in they separated the girls with like nursing and teaching and I didn't know you know to be feminist then I just wanted to go with the boys and so went with boys and this guy from NASA's Guy Actually said women do not become engineered. Yet I was so offended I went home and that's home. My Mama say what I only WanNa do fashion anymore I wanNA become an engineer and she's like. Bass drastic. So I just kind of looked into what types of engineering I would potentially enjoy in to be truthfully honest none of them were remotely interesting. I just knew that airplanes was probably the most interesting to me and I ended up majoring in Tennessee State University. So you were on that path and what did you envision your life looking like before this whole entrepreneurship thing happened. My first internship with with Nasser in our member calling my mom during that year that summer I was like. Do this every single day for like sixty five years. There's no way. This could be life, and so I knew that I was going to work for a while I. Just knew that couldn't be that person that worked until retirement indigenous. No hope to petty pitch whatever they decided I I earn so. Actually, GonNa. Probably be engineer for a while. Then I had no idea. So, walk us through what was the motivation behind starting turning natural. While two thousand, one by MOM was diagnosed with Stage two breast cancer and even though Stage two is roads of we early at that time cancelled as like a death sentence, everyone was so afraid of being diagnosed in, you know all the people that we had known to be diagnosed like my aunt who was diagnosed with stage four she passed away shortly after being diagnosed in. So our live drastically changed a mom went from a meat eater to vegetarian to Vegan and. Nine and a half years she was cancer free. Very healthy life in we found out in two thousand ten that cancer I came back. When it came back, it was much more aggressive. It's spread to her bones and then it went to her liver was in like two weeks of out that it came back my mom transition and so you'll never really hear me say my mom died I think super aggressive word. In it helps me cope to say she transition because I believe is energy. Redo that guy we just exist in another space and so shortly after my mom passed a believe that very next summer I quit my job and has started going to grief counseling When my mom transition, they give you this pamphlet that tells you what morning is GonNa look like in one minute you're GONNA be happy. One Minute you're going to be said and you're going to be depressed. That you're going to be angry. and. I was just angry I was angry for a very, very hard time. A MOM's a super spiritual woman. I was very angry with guy. Stop believing in any and everything in ages I'm already an introvert. So I literally practice. introverts space like no one could get in my space in. A really good friend of my recommended grief counseling which even made me angrier. Like I don't want to go to counselling I don't want another person to tell me to be absent from the bodies to be present with guy like that didn't make sense to me and I didn't want someone else to say I'm sorry for your loss because I really don't know how to respond to that. I don't WanNa say thank you that you're sorry for my law. So I was just in a very angry space in a started going to counseling. It was difficult because everyone that I had talked to a new mom. So I never had to explain my mother in the way that I had to explain to this counselor. and. She told me that morning isn't linear. You're not going to feel one way today, and then the next day is the next phase in pampering. You're gonNA fill multiple things on multiple days. And that was probably the single best advice that I could have gotten after my mom transition. So I'm sitting at my desk at my job at the time when I'm still in engineer and I hear my mother's voice and she said, why are you still here now in my mind I'm like I read about this this is the point where my mind I'm going crazy because if I turn around my mom is standing here I am not Right anymore. and. So I stopped what I was doing and I turned around I. Heard it again of course, she was there but I knew that Mitt like you don't WanNa do this anymore you not fulfil. You're just doing it because you're good at it. and. So I went to my boss's office and. told him as saying, Hey, you know I can't do this anymore. And you know at the time I was doing about equipment. The workload that I had was equivalent to two or three people job title. And so he said, don't worry. We're interviewing people were going to get you some help You don't understand I don't want to do this job at all anymore So I quit.

Calming the Chaos with Tracy Kenela

"Right everyone. Welcome to the addicted mind podcast. My guest today is Tracy Cannella and she is going to talk about. Chaos Tracy please introduce yourself. Hi Duane. It was good to meet you just a little bit ago and I love talking about chaos. In fact, my podcast is all about chaos and I have chaos in my life, and so here I am to talk about the possibility that we could actually be addicted to chaos aware chaos meets your specialty area, which is addiction. I know. I was so excited that you wanted to come onto the podcast because I had listened to your podcast and I really love it calming the chaos. Because I think anybody in addiction can relate to having chaos in their life. Oh Yeah. Yes I believe. So I think the the definition that I like to give away. Do you want me to introduce myself I? Yeah. Tell me a little bit about you and how you got into this work and why this particular topic chaos is meaningful to you. Yeah. So I am a licensed mental health counselor with a variety of certifications in eating disorders, rehabilitation counseling and hypnotherapy, and I have a private practice in Washington state. And so how I got interested in this? Topic of chaos is because I found that most of my clients who came in for therapy were really struggling with overwhelm and then I was in my practice at the time I developed the podcast I was very overwhelmed with people wanting therapy with me, and I just didn't have enough room in my practice to support them and always wanted to do a podcast and I thought well. You know let I'm just going to do one, and then I'll have a place to refer these people to in addition to other mental health counselors in the area. But then they could hear my voice and they can hear some of the things about overwhelmed because I really thought. This is that universal theme that most everybody brings in the therapy session why not do a podcast about? It and directs and people to a free resource that they can get help. It's a self help podcast and I really love doing it. It's it's great and it helps me come my own chaos because I have to hold my own self accountable for practicing the skills that I I suggest on the podcast. Absolutely. That's so true when you're talking and doing the work and talking to. People about how comic as he got to do it in your own life but I think you're absolutely right. This is such a universal topic I know that in my own life there have been times when I'm just overwhelmed you know it's it's so hard to get organized sometimes it's almost concealed paralyzing when you you've got all this chaos going on. So let's just start by defining chaos. Yes. So what is chaos anyway and there are several definitions I talk about in my very first episode of my podcast but in a nutshell, it is complete disorder. Unpredictable behaviour random or intense situations. So this could be actual real situations or imagine situations in your mind. It's also small changes that happen in bundles or are sensitive in nature and any sort of disorganization, and finally my favorite definition of chaos is a confused mass or mixture which I like to use to describe when I'm in the kitchen because it is pretty much chaos. When I'm cooking, I can definitely relate to that definition at times especially with all, that's going on in the world and everything changing and with a pandemic, and their feels like there's a lot of chaos right there are there's just a lot of sensory input. There's things you see on TV there's things that you hear from your next door neighbor there. Are Things you hear on the radio and all of these conclusions you come to in your mind just add up to a lot of wellm because of what's happening in our world today and we just in our minds, make it into something that it may or may not be. So I'm very fascinated by it but that's the definition of it. It's just a lot and overwhelm

Today is Shammala Pro Yoga who is the autonomous digital assistant vision lead at Ford High Shinola. Thank you so much for joining us today on today. Thank you so much. It's my pleasure. Yes. Welcome Chamois, and thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at Ford. So. Yeah. I'M GONNA and I'm the frontal known job. You know your aren't complete. So basically, I lead the wishing funded autonomous official assistance the now Newton values cases in what technologies do we need, what kind of experience we need to design, and then bringing it onto the order to find the expedience exempted. So I've been with old saw announced deals. Now on food I will voice box technologies, which is now at all students. On, board with Amazon and that is weird. Mijo. Needed on I will with little up signs once size companies as well. So I've been in the expedience design roller far on mostly two decades now today's about me. Yeah. Well, that's great. Well, you know we do spend a lot of time talking about all these different applications of AI. We call the seven patterns of Ai and we were really excited to have you present. And participate in a panel at our data for a conference which was held live September fourteenth through eighteen, twenty, twenty virtually of course, because everything is virtual but we had you WANNA panel and it was fantastic new shed some really great insights about a especially as it relates to voice assistance and voice and autonomous systems for data, and for those who are listening if you weren't able to attend the event have no worries because. You can still go on and you can access all the content at Data Ai C., O. N. F. DOT COM including chamois panel. So maybe as a preview to encourage those to listen to the whole panel. Chamois, why don't you tell us a little bit about your insights that you have gleaned about using I and the data challenges and some of the other challenges especially in the context of Autonomous Invoice assistance? Yeah. So so basically Voice as. You donate anyone using voices June board noticed agile. The superficial level of poison system is really good. You know when you ask the the assistant to do something, it would answer right. But Dan if you look, there's lot of technologies a lot of different kinds of things going in the background, which kind of makes the assistant waters doing fudd exam. You said play music, veteran recognizing usage music, and understanding the Indian that you meant you want to listen to music who processing eight and then playing the music for you, and then you know natives funding backfield wrist on of these things, acknowledges, and of course, throughout this fish cutting your wise to understand. It to renege does not of data required to understand the national and then of course, you not buying your accounting guide. So there's none of the Dow which needs to be captured throughout when you're designing. Now, I also spoke about like how these voice assistance are limited to. Happy. Use Case is solo voice assistance will officially if you are you know on American with perfect English. But if you know the moment you start having some sort of accident, you know they not as much our diamond, not even the ignites if you how strong accident. So that's another problem. So of course, this dude that challenge they've been handed down from uh specific segment, not the other. Thing especially in the autonomous eighty taints they if you on an automated states is not of background nice but you cannot control. So in those kinds of scenarios, of course, in all the assistance failed ignites, but the users said. So some of the automotive companies they would say instrument the use of Leixoes the window like make sure that business background noise. But then those are not the solutions to simplify the experience of making us Seinfield behalf not of. Their time beyond making improvements everyday. But I still feel like there's more data which is required make expedience use of the US, and that is where you know we spoke about takes and how Imboden is because as we start collecting on all these data than we are getting in, do the tribal seeded as trying to be on those kinds of face? Yeah. You know that's great. I enjoyed that panel so much on the panel we also discussed humanizing privacy Can. You share with our listeners, what this means and Wyatt? So important yeah. Glad you asked him that question also writing a book about this topic, which will come in twenty twenty, one call humanizing privacy so like I mentioned. It takes his on about principle integrity fairness and responsibility dry, and then you know into would be as will. But if you look at these assistance, the biggest challenges you know are great. But then the moment that comes to do is not of issues. For example, you know like it has been so many news at Alex saw Google has been regard late listening to other things. Other reasons they were not supposed to not for pressing for the other reason. So they will those kind of leaks which has happened and even if. You know like when you first buy your device on renewables `integrated. Donate, adopt your device.

See because I feel like privacy is the stepping stone towards trust if used those feel lake, this company has the right kind of takes the ad being responsible being the being honest. The Indy Vega behalf dignity than of course, in all people will want to use it in how we do that. So I believe that it's not just the responsibility of legal or you know alike general counsel to design some Johnson conditions concerns on these the.

Mueller prosecutor says special counsel 'could have done more' to hold Trump accountable

Mueller prosecutor says special counsel 'could have done more' to hold Trump accountable

"A former top prosecutor on special counsel Bob Miller's team writes in a new. Tell all book where law ends that the Group failed to fully investigate trump's financial ties and should have stated explicitly in their report that they believed he obstructed justice. Andrew Weissmann claims that Muller's efforts were limited by the ever present threat of trump disbanding their office and by their own reluctance to be aggressive against a sitting president. The team made sure it's work was logged into a computer system in a way so that it would be preserved if trump got rid of Mueller but Weissmann says the pressure caused them to pull punches. He likens it to a sword of Damocles hanging over all of their investigative decisions, leading them at certain times to act much less forcefully and more defensively than they would have if they were investigating anyone but the president. Weisman says it led them to delay and ultimately forego entire lines of inquiry though were quite promising particularly regarding this president financial ties to Russia. This bothered him deeply because in America no one is supposed to be above the law not even the president here is a key paragraph from Weisman's new book which comes out next week, and which we got an early copy of he writes quote. We still do not know if there are other financial ties between the president and either the Russian government or Russian oligarchs. We do not know whether he paid bribes to foreign officials to secure favourable treatment for his business interests a potential violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. That would provide leverage against the president. We do not know if he had other Russian business deals in the works at the time he was running for president how they might have aided or constrained his campaign or. Even if they are continuing to influence his presidency. Weisman was considered one of the top prosecutors at the justice, department had been a senior supervisor before Muller brought him onto his team. Now he teaches it Nyu law school in the book. Whitesman lays particular blame on Muller's number two errands assembly for stopping investigators from taking a broader look at trump's finances and he writes that he wonders whether investigators quote gave it their all Weisman lambasts attorney general bill bar for among other things giving the public a deeply misleading four-page summary of Moore's work before the full report was released publicly. bowlers report was far more damning than the anodyne description that bar put out. It was upon reading bars misleading four-page memo that Weisman decided yet moral obligation to write this book. Weisman is critical of Molar himself for not stating plainly that he concluded trump obstructed justice which Weisman says the evidence clearly shows Weissmann said in an interview on Monday with my colleagues Matt Sabotage and Spencer Sue that he told more, he would have stated that conclusion in the teams final report. More. Critically, Weisman complains how he felt more was wrong not to green light issuing a subpoena for trump's testimony, and he also details how he personally pressed the special counsel repeatedly to do so. The office also declined to compel testimony from the President's son Donald Trump Junior, or even to seek an interview with first daughter Ivanka trump who was involved in a lot of the potential misconduct described in the final report. Weisman's primary task was to lead the team called Team N, which investigated former trump campaign chairman Paul manafort for financial crimes in hopes that he'd flip to become a useful witness another team team are was tasked with exploring whether the trump campaign had coordinated with Russia to influence the election and another team six hundred was tasked with exploring whether trump had obstructed justice. Weisman is critical of that ladder team teams six hundred saying that an FBI agent assigned to it complained to him that it was quote pulling its punches and shooting down her views. And weisman alleges that its leader Mike driven another veteran former prosecutor. Confided in him privately that he would not have been. So mealy mouthed about saying the president had obstructed Justice Weisman's says driven. told him quote if you and I were in charge this is not how it would read. I should say here that Zebedee Moeller Andrew even did not respond to our requests for comment about what said about them in the book.

I spent an awful lot of time in the south for work especially in in your neck woods near near Atlanta and I've been called a damn Yankee a couple of times our. I spent enough time I. Went to college in the West and There are a lot of folk that move there and someone i. To listeners if I drop my New York drawl and pick up a little bit of a southern trying as we. But. A welcome and dying to know what exactly daring facilitator as because you know if you're a browns fan like we are in, are a lot of our listeners are what the heck is that how do I become you? Can I think my head against yours? What is it? Yes. So very nice. ACILITATOR is someone who has been trained in research and the methodology of Brunei Brown and you are trained to facilitate the curriculums that she has written. That are based on her books to gifts of imperfection daring greatly, and rising strong, and then there are certified there to leave facilitators that are trained to. The curriculum that goes along with her books near to lead, which is for businesses in corporate work. In that sort of thing I I am a huge Bernice, out fan I have to say that Her work literally changed my life or Yeah in tooth and I'll I'll Kinda make the story short. But in two thousand, twelve several people from different areas of my life kept asking me if I had seen this woman's Ted talk and they're like name grenade or rene or something like that. This is before Burnett like really hit it big. And like we're five people in the course of a couple of months kept mentioning Ted Talk to me and finally I was like, okay, got to figure out who this woman is and what she's about and so because I tend to be a little bit upset. I I was. I was just going to dive right into Rene, and so I spent the whole, all of two thousand, twelve reading everything she'd ever written, and at that time she had dreamed books out Thought, it was just me the gift of imperfection enduring greatly had had just come out and I spent reading everything. She never written every article I listened to every podcast interview I just really like speak to myself in grenade for several months and I was totally taken aback I've felt like everything that she talked about in her books was what I heard everyday clients talking about on my couch and and I also felt like she was giving voice and naming so many things that that I still struggled with in my life that you know just in whole concept of shame. Keeps a small and and and chain can sometimes we really loud in our lives and sometimes it can be really covert and just recognizing in my own life like, wow, there there are a lot of ways in my life right now that I'm still hiding and you would never know from looking like looking out you know looking from the outside in you know I was at the time was a practicing therapist as I am still now and I'm giving talks and you know and I was out there but I realize in reading from work and reading her research I realized how? To little ways that I'm hiding hiding in things that I I do hiding in things that I never try hiding in people that I'm like Oh. We don't have anything in common I'M NOT GONNA you know get to know her just lots of little ways and and so I started taking comes little baby steps to come out of hiding really really small things that again, no one on the outside would have noticed any difference in my life but I was taking these little steps that felt very vulnerable to me and to my life and one baby step led to another baby step led to another baby step. And in two thousand thirteen. I had been working at a counseling center here in Atlanta were seven years at the time and or six years, and in two thousand and spring two, thousand thirteen. I went out on my own and started my own private practice and and it was because of Brunei and I know I recognized how cheesy. I mean out of my mouth, but it was you know these months with like Oh my goodness. I'm hiding I'm playing small. I. Am giving into those messages of shame and scarcity and I'm not enough I'm not enough capable enough. I'm not business minded enough and you know there was just a lot of not enough nece still going on in my life despite being a therapist and having done years of personal growth and development work and all of those daily steps to this big professional league of going out on my own and starting my own practice which you know has ended up just being. Probably one of the two best decisions ever in my entire life and So in the spring of two, thousand, thirteen I went out on my own, and then that summer was when I went to Texas for the training to be a certified waste, acilitator and So the the work the training just allows you to do a deeper dive into the work and teaches you how to teach the material to others how how to. Apply it to your client work and and so I, I hold daring way retreat to hold rising strong retreats and I integrate the work into my clients and and it's really foundational in a lot of ways to my practice and how I conceptualize shame with clients, and how I talk about all the different ways we armor up we protect ourselves from vulnerability and it's just been life changing personally and professionally for me.

Foods to Help Kids Focus

"Good morning, everyone, and welcome to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. Currently, kids are back at school already didn't the summer fly by WHO Know Carolina did it summer started in March? Yes Whether. It is full time or part time in person or because of the corona virus this year, maybe your kids have taken over your dining room table threesome champion a little bit more every room. Right whatever way your kids are attending school. This year brings some very much extra challenges for both students and for the parents. So we believe it is even more important to feed your kids foods that will help them focus and learn. Yes. That is so true whether your student is in college or kindergarten food counts when you want them to have good brain power. Well Good morning everyone I am Caroline Hudson and as a Dietitian I am constantly reading and learning about how I can improve my own nutritional counseling skills. So I can help my clam clients both young and, of course, old I. Want them to feel better do better and I understand how food helps build memory and focus in children adults, and of course, even in our seniors joining me today in studio is registered and licensed. Dietitian Theresa Wagner, who is living through this unique back the school journey with her three children ages eleven nine and six and April. Actually it was. Oh Yeah. It was April right TREASA. You wrote that great blog about the challenges as a parent who is trying her best to feed her kids, healthy meals and snacks throughout. Every day right. Beside loved your line in your blog about. Quote Mom Guilt Magnus don't have that out there. I mean moms out there I think everybody's saying. We sure do whether it's about food or anything I. Think we're guilty. or at least we feel that way. Yes but I have been debt registered Dietitian. Let's see here for the past twelve years and I know this because I remember passing the RDA exam when I was very pregnant with my son my first child. So over the years I think I have had. A lot of experience just trying to feed my kids healthy foods. Yeah well, however when The order came to stay at home. What happened I was constantly hearing I'm hungry. What can I have for a snack? It's amazing at how much and how often my kids wanted to eat to be honest at first I was able to manage the situation on how often my kids wanted to eat but I have to admit that after a while I just threw up my hands in food exhaustion exhaustion and just started to say, yes to whatever they wanted to eat. Now remember I'm a Dietitian and food is very important to me. So I wasn't feeling very good about what they were choosing to eat. Yes. In the short term, I found it was easier to just let my kids eat whatever they wanted but I knew that it was not what I wanted for my kids over the long term. and. Just like any parent listening I, want to feed my kids food supports their body and their brain and as reality of this Cova situation set in I realized that we're all in the same position and we could be for many more months. So I came up with three simple insights to motivate myself and hopefully others to make good food choices a bigger priority and again. I'll share some of these insights with you in hopes that they can help you. The one of the first insights I had was. I want to see my kids healthy foods because they build strong bodies, well-functioning brains, and disease resistant immune systems. All very important reasons absolutely Ashley Right now especially right now that immune support immune systems, you have to have a really strong immune system right now, right because if we come in contact with that virus, we want to be able to fight it off or if we get it, we wanna be able to not have horrible symptoms are. Horrible reaction exactly The second insight, poor food choices like processed foods equal. Poor Focus and poor concentration. Frankly, now that I've been forced into a new role as a Teacher's assistant. A role that I'm not super excited about. I don't want learning for my kids to be more difficult for them, which in turn would make my job more difficult. But most importantly, I want learning to be fun exciting meaningful challenging. Yes. But not difficult. So that was my second insight. And third maybe the most important in the short term and kind of looking through my parenting I as poor food choices leads to poor behavior

Students experienced homelessness at some point last year ahead of the new school year. They're getting help, but it's not enough.

We need the city. Urgently. You work across agencies bring different agencies together and charge someone with fixing these problems immediately, Comptroller Scott Stringer sent a letter to the mayor calling on the city to designate what he's calling an inter agency director of students, Mayor de Blasio says they are focusing on those kids in need of counseling teaching to during re sources.

What is Play Therapy?

What is Play Therapy?

"Are. Right we are back with another episode and I'm really excited to have on the body guests on the show with us on the data. Vargas is a licensed mental health counselor. She's a registered play therapist and supervisor, but also she's trained in em Dr and not only that is certified as a I play practitioner. So we really have an amazing guest with us that's going to talk about safe air. I want to share a little bit more about her Andrea is also the south chapter. Chair for the Lord Association for play therapy and she has specialize in child and adolescent counseling. Since two thousand six, her practice is located in a western. Florida. where she serves children of all ages teens and their families, as well as college students and as passionate about helping parents and strengthen their relationships through able therapeutic interventions and the I was born in. Columbia and emigrated to the United States with her family when she was a toddler growing up, she remembers that therapy like in most Latin families was believed to be or what unquote people with problems crazy people. So thank you and the wrath or coming on after talking about this for so long welcome to let the next therapy. Hi Yes, and so excited to be here. Thank you for having. Sat. We're GONNA talk about play therapy and I. Know some of the listeners may be hearing this modality for the first time. So let's go ahead and get started with just explaining what is play therapy. Okay. So play therapy is what you would translate regular talk therapy to the developmental age of a child rates. So when we picture adult going to therapy normally command area having a deal more or less than what they're gonNa work on on what they're going to talk about and they sit. On the couch and then the dialogue starts right. But with kids, they necessarily come up with the idea of wanting to go to a therapist. So their parents really bring them in talking to kids like most of you know if you guys are parents, it's not the same. You know some kids don't have the words and even if they do, they'll more than like me say things like, I. Don't know for energy look at you like the really. So with great, you meet them with a yards of elementary. So kids play and they also stare feelings and they even crosses all the changes that are happening around them or maybe negative events that have occurred in their family or in their life and. Of play therapies is a therapist train specifically to enter a child world and pickup themes that the child might be playing out to get a better understanding of how this child feeling what they're struggling with, and then working closely with the parents to help their parents understand them, and then giving parents tools to make certain adjustments and also the child helping them. Understand better ways to communicate or better ways to manage and culprit their Felix Okay and so play therapy involves the children, but it sounds like it involves the parents as well. Yes. Yes. I. Mean. If you think about it when a therapist needs to do child, they might need them once a week but that's not enough time to really change or enough. It's almost impossible to king somebody a child when you're not thinking about the whole family or even school. So if the child is having a problem at school, just working with the kyle limits you to what how much can you really made so if you work closely with the school, you Greco see if the parents and if maybe they're have grandparents, for example. So part of working with. A calendar understanding that they have a lot of adults involved in their life, and if all the adults get on the same page and work together that child is going to be way more successful. Okay. What about children that have caregivers or are in the foster care system? Are they eligible to receive play therapy like with IBM modality for them as well? If they don't have a consistent caregiver? Yes. I mean, when we think about foster, can they definitely need a safe face to process all of those feeling that? You know that they're feeling because of their foster care placement. So it's a little tricky because like you said, they don't have consistent caregivers, but you know if they are in a foster home, you can work leash with the foster parent and then whatever school they were going to. So maybe not as consistent because they might change the foster home or maybe they are still working our reunification with their parents with their biological parents. You can always include depending on the case right whoever is currently taking care of the child and if they still have contact with the biological parent involving his okay that makes sense. What are the ages that play therapy is best for? So people say like play therapists say that they're play therapy can work with anybody from three to one hundred and three right by it been studied and studied have found that it's most effective with kids between the ages of three and twelve. So it is possible and what about the children with special needs is play therapy also something that they can do? Yes. They are just like in adult therapy there's different specializations so they are different type. Training. Somebody would take in order to work with children on the autism spectrum. Can called off play. There's other stuff likes floor time so. Underneath play therapy, there's different branches. So as long as you are there, understand the child special need in your trine in working with that special needs population than we can definitely use sleep there.

Friendships at Work and Beyond with Shasta Nelson

"I've been studying friendship now for twelve years really specifically, I passionate relationships in general but I found myself looking at US some studies coming out talking about specifically at a time for women, how significant their friendships were to their health into their happiness, and yet I was looking around at all of us being so obsessed with the parent child relationship and the romantic relationships, and like we were buying thousands of books and we were like, who am I if I don't have these relationships and it was like that was just like the we think of them as they the kind of things we need in our lives and yet the research shows that those things. Actually aren't always that great happiness and our health and traditionally haven't always been that way and that our friendships that Matt make such a difference I found myself kind of in that space where I was looking around being like, why aren't people talking about this more? Why aren't people doing research on this? Why are we not finding resources for people and that's really what kind of just put me in that space I wasn't because I knew that much about it was because I was. Asking the questions and just trying to find resources for people people I was working with and stop and ever since then I've been reading and devouring and learning, and listening, and teaching, and writing books, and speaking, and gathering up, you know most of its with women and This book puts me a little bit broader. I'm doing more co ED, which is actually very cool too because I've long felt that men I think this is one of the reasons why they die younger than women. And and I think this is why I think men need. I don't think it's a women's issue. I think it's a human need and so I'm really excited to be talking about it in broad terms to but yeah friendship is like the thing. The thing and you actually have a ministerial decree. Don't you approaching this from a really sort of holistic perspective yet my training as a got a massive divinity and I used to pastor and so it felt like a big veer off the road. But when I, look back on it, I was like that was where I was doing marriage counseling I was training small. Groups here Emmy, as a pastor, you're asking the question, how do I bond community what is community and how do people belong and and really thinking through when somebody walks in the door is visitor what does it mean to actually participate belong and so yeah I've in many ways have always been about community and wanting money all of us to feel that sense of. Your belonging and unfortunately in churches, not all of them but unfortunately, in most churches will you can experience that belonging, but there's a lot of. That, you have to believe a certain thing to belong or you have to behave a certain way to behave behavior. You have to appear a certain way to you know and that kind of never rubbed me right either. So it's really just how do we all as humans get that need to feel connected met and ways where we just feel accepted for who we are. So yeah, that's been a life passion. An and what made you want to tackle the workplace side of it then? Yeah, that's a good question I. so here's the thing. My second book was titled French Missy, and that one was talking about how most of us when we feel lonely and as a word that most of us don't actually even use the name very well. But when we feel like we want something more most of us, it's not we want more interaction or that we need to. Know more people that we need to make new friends. Most of us that we need to, we need to have closer relationships where craving intimacy were craving more meaningful relationships, and so I was noticing that a lot of us when we felt lonely, we were like, Oh, I need to go make friends I need to meet people and I was like, no, you actually know enough people you don't feel known by a few and so you need to let go. And when I teach what deepens relationship one of the three things that deepens relationships is consistent time and shared experiences and repeated interaction and I this won't surprise you at all. The number one thing I heard is I don't have time for that I don't have time to be that consistent I can only meet her for lunch once a month or I can only see them once a year I fly out there or I just don't have time to be on the phone I just over and over and over I don't have time. And I've thought, you know I could do my darndest to like into one more hour week and and that's not going when you see the numbers collectively of sixty one percent of US feeling lonely on a somewhat regular basis I was like I don't think I can talk you into one more hour and that's going to make the biggest difference I. Think we need to tackle. You know work is like two adults. What school is two kids. This is where we're spending time with people where we're interacting. We're making our biggest contribution and I was like, why don't we talk about putting friendship and our whole life as opposed to trying to fit it in his personal life bucket with a thousand other things and to me this is really answering the question of how can we? Get more of our emotional social needs met in the biggest part of our lives in that bucket. So it's answering the question I don't have time. Well you do. Doing. Yes exactly. But but I think a lot of people feel a little weird about that. Right? I mean first, we're accustomed to thinking of life in separate spheres but you one is where we can have this this vulnerability, the intimacy with people in our personal lives. You, know we feel a little bit weird about that in in the workplace is, is it okay to be vulnerable and intimate with people at work? Yeah. Absolutely. It is and it's so interesting because we are uncomfortable with it when I was doing the research about thirty percent of esther like. And yet when asked, how many of us lot a friend almost of us are like Oh. Yes. Please in at work like we're not sure it's appropriate but we want one and also it is it is whether we like it or not. It is the number one place adults are making their friends and so that is happening and the much bigger question is it is happening we need it to happen. What we need to do is talk about it more and teach healthy expectations and set this up so that it's best for the people involved and for the workplace and the research shows it is absolutely. Paramount, not to are not only to our individual health and happiness but to the organizations of who we work, which is really fascinating. I mean there's twenty years of research I mean we're talking. Decades and many many different people studying it in a variety of different ways who say if you have a best friend at work, you are the best employees for the workplace you're more engaged you have better treat the customers better. You're less likely to leave. So we're bringing our turnover costs down. You call in sick last year fewer workplace accidents. I mean, you just look down the list and the people who? Have a best friend at work. Absolutely show up and feel more engaged look forward to Monday morning the Monday morning in air quotes and feel like they wanna feel support it and they feel safer brainstorming they feel safer taking risks they feel safer showing up with the ideas and those last few ideas are examples of vulnerability in the workplace and to your point a lot of us are like. Well, we picture people. Telling personal drama and just being all these heated one last night and we picture `vulnerability and we have like these fears the pop into our head immediately and I do teach incremental slow vulnerability when we're talking about disclosing and I teach how to do that and healthy Safeway But more importantly, vulnerability is what we need in order to brainstorm. It's what we need to say, I, actually don't know the answer to this or I actually need help with this or. Not just diversity inclusion is vulnerability. It's like let me I don't want to just have you be a token different person at the table I. Actually want your differences, the impact art answers here and your story to change what we're trying to do and how you're experiencing this and I'm all. When we actually list everything we want for the workplace and how we will be better together it takes an incredible amount of vulnerability to to do that.

"Pay their sober people and sober solar 's and other people who are just interested in fine tuning near. Mental Health. Yeah it's me Linh and I'm in Georgia peachtree city to be exact for those of you who don't know I. Would like to just kind of reintroduce myself if you're. A recent joyner to the podcast I am a licensed professional clinical counselor with a private practice in Peachtree City, Georgia, and I also practice online with my clients back where I was originally licensed in Minnesota. So if you're in either of those two states that can work with you as a counselor, however I also have sober. So recovery where I coach people because that's what do you do when your therapist and want to reach more people in the world you practice your coaching skills which we also use in therapy. So I've developed this coaching program that I use with people, which is very similar to what I do in my counseling practice extraordinarily similar. And I offer that through private coaching packages where you can work with me individually for a series of months and you can find out more at Lynn. Mattie DOT, com or sober. So Recovery Net, they take you to the same place and you can just check me out there. I started this podcast in two thousand eighteen really as a project to get my voice out there. And share what I know to be good mental health with other people along with issues that surround us when we are in recovery or trying to be sober and all of those good things and today I am surprised. But happily so to know that there are about twenty five thousand of you listening every month and I'm ever so grateful for you picking up what I'm. Putting down. So today's subject I loved digging in two things that interest me but also seemingly come up a lot in my week to week working with people who are suffering in the same way that I dead wanting to make their lives better and finding ways to do that. That are very empowering. So today I wanNA talk about one of the most powerful tools in what? I call the buffer zone, which is essentially your toolkit it just i. like the analogy of a buffer zone because you can grow it really big. I am putting my two hands out very close together at first and then stretching to become a big buffer zone of things that you can do to help you cope and one of the most powerful tools as I said is acceptance. Let's figure out why people often will say I can't. Do this anymore I can't stand it. It's not fair. This possibly could ruin me. This can't be true and it shouldn't be this way. It's almost as if we refuse to accept truths that are right in front of us, and we work really hard to keep it from becoming true. Or that we balk re refused to accept that if we do this thing called accepting. It means a green with this thing that is. Seemingly. Unacceptable standing right in front of us but accepting doesn't mean a green I like to think about accepting as refocusing your energy. Because it's exhausting to keep fighting what is happening right in front of us the reality of what's happening in front of us, and moreover, it doesn't work refusing to accept for instance that you've been fired or that someone's broken up with you that your friend cheated you somehow or did something wholly unexpected and something that goes against your very values you weren't you know accepted into a program that you like. This becomes pain and pain is uncomfortable and it's not what we want to experience. Accepting reality is difficult. Exactly because it's painful, no one wants to experience disappointment sadness or loss but those are experiences that are part of life when we attempt to avoid and resist these emotions. We add suffering to our pain. We build the emotion bigger her with our thoughts and our rumination creating more misery by attempting to. And or suppress these painful emotions

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.

"From the cyber wire studios at data tribe. I'm Dave bittner with your cyber wire summary for Wednesday may twenty ninth twenty nineteen in his first public statements since completing his investigation into alleged influence operations and conspiracy during the two thousand sixteen elections, special counsel, Robert Muller, spoke to the media briefly this morning from the Justice department after discussing the scope of his investigation. He quickly reviewed the indictments of Russian actors who engaged in hacking, campaign networks, mostly democratic although he didn't name parties and used WikiLeaks to retail the results of their dock Zing, and he did call out WikiLeaks. The also reviewed the indictment of a private Russian organization, the internet research agency of Saint Petersburg. Although he didn't name them for using social media in an attempt to influence the election. The special counsel scrupulously stressed that everyone under indictment is entitled to the presumption of. Scence. He described his report is having two parts volume one dealt with efforts emanating from Russia to influence the election. This portion of the investigation concluded that there were such efforts, and that there was insufficient evidence to charge any US persons with conspiracy, the second volume dealt with possible, obstruction of the investigation here Muller stressed that the report made no determination of whether the president, in particular, committed the crime of obstruction the constitution, he explained precludes charging a sitting president with a crime should a sitting president be suspected of a crime. The constitution prescribes other remedies investigation of a sitting president is, of course, possible he added and such investigation can preserve evidence or result in charges being brought against others, but by regulation, the special counsel, had no option to charge the president with a crime, thus the special counsel ruled out making any determination of whether the president might be charged with obstruction. In addition to Justice department rules and constitutional considerations Muller cited, a principle of fairness, it would be unfair for a report to accuse someone with a crime they cannot be formerly charged with and so have their opportunity to be heard in court with that special counsel declined to offer comment on other conclusions or hypotheticals about the president special counsel, Muller said he'd ask the Torney general to release only parts of the report, but attorney general bar preferred to make the entire report largely public and Muller took no issue with this at the end of his brief statement, special counsel, Muller said he had no intention of speaking again, nor would he take any questions any testimony. He might render to congress would not go beyond the contents of the report. The report is my testimony as he put it adding that access to our underlying work product is being decided in the process that does not involve our office. The statement as a whole took less than ten minutes. Fire? I defied extensive coordinated information operations in support of Iranian interests during the US midterm elections in authentic accounts, tended to express opposition to President Trump, but their ideological slant, in American terms was opportunistic some of the lines pushed represented themselves as progressive, others, conservative. But their common goal was to advance Iranian policy. The tendency was in general anti Republican, but again, it's important to bear in mind that this was opportunistic. The overall goal was to advance Irani in views, both Twitter and Facebook tipped off by fire. I have removed the accounts in question politico, observes that the Iranian activity indicates that other governments are cribbing from Russia's information ops playbook, exposing that playbook.

"And suggesting that the special counsel is not on the up and up that he's trying to get people to say things that aren't true, I want you to take a listen to something President Trump said on Sunday wouldn't say that. No, no advance to the special counsel. They would say they that. Maybe they believe that's the truth. That's what the that's what the adversary process is all about. But don't take it as gospel because guys have pled guilty in my experience, the things they didn't do in order to get out of worse problems. If they actually did and your experience. Criminal Justice when you were unfortunate. Whatever a prosecutor, you accepted plea deals from people talking you, Don, right? I would never do that. I'd never do what they did with with Cohen. Let me ask to campaign finance violation that as a matter of law, Dr he's not a campaign finance. Don't you think? That's phony is a Bill. Finish now. Yeah. Now, my old office the southern district of Neo right? That prosecution should that guilty pleas should never have been taken. And the fact is if it wasn't a president of the United States, it would not have been taken. If you take that plea there were thirty members of congress. I got ready for you to prosecute who had people who had to federal tax payers money us to settle sexual harassment complaints, nor money and mine used to do it. That's not a campaign contribution. They should all be under investigation. Now. I can't they I have no of he's and unfairly I have no, let's do it. Let's bring that on. I want you to take a listen to something. The president said we have covered about the special counsel. Take a listen to this from President Trump. But. I appreciate the special counsel coming out. With a statement last night. I think it was very appropriate that they did. So I very much appreciate that. That's some praise for the special counsel from President Trump. I did the same thing the president has referred to the special counsel investigation as a witch hunt. Probably hundreds of times at least dozens of times on after the integrity of Robert Muller and his team does this mean now that you and the president accept the credibility of special counsel Robert Muller in his office. No, he does something good. We're going to commend him. If he does something we think is wrong. We're going to defend the president good is in bad is something you don't like it seems. Well, no that's also true for him. Right. Where we have different points of view on this. When when he's when he's doing what he's doing to metaphor think is horrible. He's got demand slalom Terry confinement now for six months, and he keeps question of trying to pressure him to say things that are not true. I think that's terrible. Why do you think man?

"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..

"The university of Chicago law school, and Eric it is wonderful to have you back. Thank you. Let us begin with the text of the constitution. Article two section two says that the president shall have the power by with the advice and consent of the Senate to appoint all off. Fisher's the United States whose appointments are not here in other wise provided for and which will be established by law, but the congress may by law vest, the appointment of such inferior officers as they think proper in the president alone in the courts of law in the heads of departments Eric unpacked rest the significance of that language. What is the constitutional distinction between a principal and an inferior officer of the United States? And do you believe that the special counsel is a principal or an inferior officer? Shorts. This, you know, very brief cause of constitutions quite part because it gives the president and his boarding. It's power to fill up the federal bureaucracy with point teas and. There are these principal officers who are basically the top people who have a lot of discretionary authority like the attorney general, for example, and the president appoints these principal officers at the advice of consent of the Senate of presidents the person in the Senate those on him or her. And then this clause that you read was made by love the intersection officers as they think proper the president allowed and so forth. Just says the cops can make all kinds of offices that are inferior. Meaning these are subordinates people who are controlled by the the superior officers, the principal officers and congress can decide how xactly. Offset should be filled. And that's of course, the importance here is that if the special counsel is in principle officer. He should be appointed. With Senate the Senate and the lies down to us. The president could remove him for any reason as well on the other hand, if isn't fear officer, then the general view, Josh might disagree with this is that congress can put constraints on move of that person. So key issue in the special counsel is that that Bill says that these Bessul cancer from even moved on me for good cause and. My fear is that because the special counsel is a his interior officer since he's controlled by the attorney general congress is allowed to put women on his removal. Thank you for that very lucid introduction. So as you've helped us understand if the officers are principal officer, the the understanding is that the president can fire him. But if he's an inferior officer, the general understanding is that there can be limits placed on the ability to fire, though, you said there's some disagreement about that. So Josh I'd like your thoughts on this question of how to define a principal versus inferior officer. And whether or not you think the special counsel is a principal in fear officer, and then we can turn to the question of limitations on fire. Thanks very much gas on. I think Eric is has teed it up just perfectly. He is. He's laid it out clearly, and he's homed in on the one part where where we may see it somewhat differently. But I'm with him the special counsel is an inferior officer and in general for listeners when they think of principal officers, they should think of cabinet members roughly people who answer directly to the president. And then when they think of inferior officers, they should think a bit below that people who have a boss that sits between them and the president in the reporting chain and just to fill out the picture of the executive branch listeners may wanna also have in mind one more category below so to speak inferior officers, this category tends to get called employees in by the court says they work through this. So you have the president atop the executive branch principal officers just below the president inferior officers below that. And then this. Category of of employees and two to two point in the direction. I think we're headed I think Eric, and I probably agree that the principal officers can be removed by the president essentially as the president sees fit and the employee ease can have what we now think of as civil servant protections, generally. And the debate the debate is it applies to this Bill that's been proposed his over those inferior officers and the extent to which the president can be limited in his ability to remove those folks. Thanks so much for that great t up as well. Joshua. Okay..

"Special counsel well that's what's supposed to happen i mean if there is actually collusion and he's doing his job to investigate russian interference in our election it doesn't mean that the collusion is the kind of collusion you're thinking of or that the media wants you to think of in other words if the russians were attempting to interfere with our election and even if they were talking to low level people like popadopoulos or the other guy that carter page it's not because they thought they had the way to get trump elected it's because they thought he was going to lose and whatever they were trying to do was to sow discontent among his supporters if the election were to go the way they thought it was going to go the russian election was everybody including putin thought she was gonna win that day that's the point he mccarthy mate when you look at them around the world and how they operate they are always trying to help the the candidate who they think is gonna lose they can't do anything with the one who's going to win because they think the person's gonna win regardless and they don't think the person's going to turn around and then go i'm so grateful to you pootie and that's a point that gets missed the other point that gets missed is that if a special counsel's job is to look at a counterintelligence investigation into russia attempting interfere with our election and he's indicting twelve russians for doing that well that's what's supposed to happen otherwise there is no there there's no reason to have him and nobody has suggested this is the other talking point they had to go what the you people said shut down the russian investigation no what people have suggested is that the muller investigation has gone outside of the original scope which was to look at russia interfering in our election the counter intelligence investigation it was supposed to it wasn't supposed to be a witch onto start going after everybody associated with donald trump and his finances and anything else that he thought it was supposed to be an investigation into russia and their attempts to sow discontent in our election system and nothing to do with what paul i mean in a perfect world manafort should have never been indicted by muller because it had nothing to do with his charge so muller should have referred to a us attorney who then could have pursued charges against manafort muller should not be going after him because it has nothing to do with what the russians did with regards to our election system but that's that's the problem though is that this was always a counterintelligence investigation not a criminal investigation that was the time but then you have these idiots like struck and others who when they were there when they were there you had these people use the cover of a counterintelligence investigation to seek out criminal activity what did what did peter struck with his google model lisa page they tried to find evidence of a crime that they could bring forward either before the election to change the outcome before the inauguration i guess to change the electoral college or maybe they'll just pull the bible away from his hand as he was about the way san or third it was then try to get him impeached so under the cover of a counter intelligence investigation these guys went after and try to find evidence of criminal activity they didn't find any that's the point they never found any they still haven't and yet it goes on so it's absolutely appropriate to find out what russia attempted to do in the election but that doesn't mean that you're gonna find some smoking gun that they in fact did something to help the trump campaign win if you were were you would've probably found it by now right so these arrests today as far as i can tell are what's supposed to happen if you're having a counter intelligence investigation you arrest foreign actors attempting to do things in our election system but remember something they have not proven that anybody from the trump campaign did anything with them to affect the outcome of the election be russians when they do interfere around these countries around the world they're always trying to help the.
