Giuliani slams ‘swamp media’, says it’s time to fight back against Dems


COMPLAINT WAS SUBMITTED TO THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY’S INSPECTOR GENERAL. LOU: IT TURNS OUT SCHIFF HAD EARLY NOTICE.>>YOU ARE SURPRISED HE IS CONSPIRING TO LEVEL FALSE CHARGES AGAINST THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? THE GUY WHO CLAIMED HE HAD DIRECT EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION? LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? AS PART OF THE OTHER CONSPIRACY TO FRAME. THAT’S WHY WE ARE CONSIDERING A LAWSUIT. REMEMBER HE DOESN’T HAVE IMMUNITY WHEN HE’S OFF THE FLOOR OF THE CONGRESS. AND HIS STATEMENT ABOUT HAVING THIS EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION WAS MADE TO A REPORTER. THE SUPREME COURT CASE SAYS YES, SAY IT TO CONGRESS, YOU ARE IMMUNE. PUT IN A PRESS RELEASE, YOU ARE LIABLE LIKE ANYBODY ELSE. WE ARE CONSIDERING A LAWSUIT TO VINDICATE THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF THE PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT’S ADMINISTRATION, TO ALSO REMEDY THE PROGRAM TRAMPLING ON THE CIVIL RIGHTS OF MANY, MANY PEOPLE. LOU: INCLUDING THE RIGHTS OF HIS ATTORNEY. THIS IS AN EFFORT TO INTIMIDATE YOU.>>THEY ARE GOING AFTER BARR WHO IS HIS GOVERNMENT ATTORNEY. THEY ARE GOING AFTER ME WHO IS HIS PRIVATE COMMUNITY. WITH BARR THEY ARE OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE. REMEMBER THEY WERE CHARGING THE PRESIDENT WITH OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? SO WHY ISN’T IT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE IF DEMOCRATIC SENATORRED REACH OUT TO FOREIGNERS AND SAY DON’T COOPERATE WITH BARR. IT’S AN INVESTIGATION OF AN ALLEGED CRIME INVOLVING ADVANCED MANIPULATION OF INTELLIGENCE SERVICES IN ITALY, THE UKRAINE, THE UNITED KINGDOM AND AUSTRALIA. THAT’S ALSO AN ATTEMPT TO INTERFERE WITH THE PRESIDENT’S ABILITY. THEIR INTERFERENCE WITH BARR IS ATTEMPTING TO INTERFERE WITH BARR TRYING TO MAKE SURE THE LAW IS EXECUTED.>>I HAVE A GOOD RECORD OF GOING AFTER SCOUNDRELS INCLUDING THE MAFIA AND THE UNIONS. THEY WERE A HELL OF A LOT SMARTER THAN SCHIFF. SCHIFF SHOULD HAVE KEPT HIS REMARKS ON THE — FLOOR OF THE HOUSE AND HE WOULD HAVE BEEN IMMUNE. BUT WHEN HE STARTS SPOUTING ALL OVER THE PLACE, AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT WHETHER HE’S INVOLVED IN SETTING UP THE WHISTLEBLOWER THING. BUT A MONTH BEFORE I CAN SHOW HIM SAYING THINGS REMARKABLY SIMILAR TO WHAT THE WHISTLEBLOWER’S COMPLAINT HAS TONIGHT, WHICH IS MORE A LEGAL BRIEF. IT HAS TO BE A WASHINGTON LAWYER, I HAVE A SUSPICION — WHICH WOULD YOU BE SURPRISED IF IT WAS A DEMOCRATIC PARTISAN WHO DID IT? I WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED. THIS COULD BE THE SECOND SETUP, BY THE WAY. NOW IT’S TIME TO FIGHT BACK. IT’S TIME TO HOLD THESE PEOPLE LIABLE FOR THREATENING TO ARREST THE PRESIDENT’S ATTORNEY GENERAL. THAT’S NOT INTIMIDATION. IT’S NOT INTIMIDATION TO THREENT DISBAR ME BECAUSE I’M DOING MY JOB? WHAT’S GOING TO COME OUT TOMORROW IS THE REFUTABLE — THE IRREFUTABLE PROOF. I DELIVERED IT TO THEM AND CONDUCTED IT BEFORE THE MUELLER WAYS WAS OVER — THE MUELLER CASE WAS OVER. I BEGAN THIS INVESTIGATION IN NOVEMBER OF 2018. I CONCLUDED IT BY THE END OF MARCH. MUELLER HAD JUST CONCLUDE HIS INVESTIGATION THEN. MY KEY INTERVIEWS WERE IN JANUARY WHEN MUELLER WAS STILL TRYING TO FRAME HIM IN THE WORST WAY POSSIBLE. THIS EVIDENCE WAS VALUABLE TO ME IN DEFENDING HIM. THAT’S WHY I GATHERED HIM. BIND WASN’T A CANDIDATE THEN. I DIDN’T EVEN THINK HE WOULD BE A CANDIDATE. HE LOOKED LIKE HE COULDN’T WALK ACROSS THE STREET. LOU: THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WANTED THE ORIGINS OF THE 2016 CONSPIRACY AGAINST HIM INVESTIGATED.>>THE UKRAINIANS CAME TO ME, I DIDN’T GO LOOKING FOR THEM. THEY TOLD ME FOR A YEAR AND A HALF THEY WERE TRYING TO GET TO THE FBI. THEY HIRED A LAWYER TO TRY TO GET TO THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. THEY COULDN’T GET TO THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. THE REASON I GAVE IT TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT WAS BECAUSE MY WITNESSES DIDN’T TRUST THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. I TRIED TO CONVINCE THEM THAT ONCE BILL BARR WAS THERE THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT BUT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT. I DELIVERED SOME OF THE NOTES I HAD, THEN I EXPECTED I WOULD HEAR BACK, AND I NEVER HEARD BACK. THEY NEVER EVEN GAVE ME THE COURTESY OF CALLING ME IN TO ASK ME ABOUT THE CREDIBILITY OF THESE THINGS. THEY NEVER TALKED TO THE PRINCIPAL WITNESSES, AND I THINK THE DEEP STATE PEOPLE STRIDE TO DEEP STATE IT BECAUSE I NEVER HEARD ANOTHER WORD ABOUT IT. I BET WE WON’T FIND A REPORT OF AN INVESTIGATION LIKE THAT. THAT’S WHAT I WOULD DO. LOU: THEY ARE TBLIGHT INSPECTORS GENERAL.>>OBAMA HOLDOVER? LOU: CORRECT. ATKINSON FROM THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY. HE IS.>>HE DID A GOOD JOB THE OBAMA JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. THIS GUY MISSED PETER STRZOK, McCABE, COMEY. LOU: DOESN’T IT STRIKE YOU — HE’S A HELL OF AN INVESTIGATOR. I DON’T THINK I WOULD HIRE HIM WHEN I WAS U.S. ATTORNEY. LOU: DOESN’T IT STRIKE YOU AS QUESTIONABLE THAT THE NATIONAL MEDIA DOESN’T WANT TO DISCUSS THIS?>>THERE IS NO WAY I CAN DESCRIBE HOW DISGUSTED I AM WITH HOW CORRUPT THE SWAMP MEDIA IS. I KNEW WHEN THEY TOLD ME ABOUT BIDEN. THIS CAME TO ME AS UKRAINIAN COLLUSION. IN THE MIDDLE I SAID JOE BIDEN FIXED THE CASE AGAINST HIS SON, SOROS AND BURISMA. AND I SAID WHAT DO YOU MEAN FIXED THE CASE. HE SAID COME ON, EVERYBODY IN UKRAINE KNOWS. DIDN’T YOU SEE THAT INTERVIEW? HE SAID NO I NEVER SAW THE INTERVIEW. HE SHOWED ME THE INTERVIEW WITH BIDEN. I SAID OH, MY GOD WEB’S GUILTY. HE DIDN’T MENTION HIS SON. HE KEPT HIS SON OUT OF IT. THEN THEY GAVE ME THE DOCUMENTS. I HAVE SEEN THE UNDERLYING DOCUMENTS OF THE INVESTIGATION, OF THE LAUNDERED MONEY, THE MONEY THAT WENT TO HUNTER BIDEN FROM LATVIA TO CYPRUS, TO THE U.S. I HAVE THE NOTES BACK FROM CYPRUS. PER U.S. GOVERNMENT WE CAN’T GIVE YOU IDENTITIES FOR HUNTER GOOD BIND AND DEVON HUNTER. EVERYBODY KNOWS THEY GAVE THEM OUT. THEN SHOKIN TESTIFIES WHEN HE CALLED HE WAS TOLD THE U.S. EMBASSY SAID DON’T GIVE OVER THE AMOUNTS ON HUNTER BIND AND LEVON. BIND SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT BURISMA. IT’S SO OBVIOUS, IT TAKES ALMOST A CORRUPT MIND NOT TO SEE IT. IT’S LOGICAL. WHAT HAPPENED IS LOGICAL. LET ME PUT IS THIS WAY. THERE IS ANY SERIOUS ADULT HUMAN BEING THAT THINKS A MULTI-BILLIONAIRE, UKRAINIAN OLIGARCH WHO FLED UKRAINE, WORKED WITH RUSSIA AND STOLE $5 BILLION IS GOING TO PAY THIS KID $3 BILLION TO $8 BILLION? THERE IS ANYBODY WHO THINKS CHINA WOULD GIVE THIS KID 2 CENTS? OR WERE THEY BUYING AND COMPROMISING THE OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AN ODOR THAT WAS SO FOUL THAT EVERYBODY IN UKRAINE USED TO LAUGH SAT JOE BIDEN WHEN HE — LAUGH AT JOE BIDEN WHEN HE TALKED WITH CORRUPTION IN UKRAINE. LOU: THE PRESIDENT’S ATTORNEY WHO HAS HIS OWN ATTORNEY, JOHN SAIL, TO REPRESENT YOU AND ALL THE MATTERS ATTACHED TO THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY.>>NEVER AUTHORIZED BY A VOTE OF CONGRESS IN ORDER TO DEPRIVE THE PRESIDENT OF THE RIGHT TO CALL WITNESSES. THE REASON IS TO AGAIN TRAMPLE HIS RIGHT TO CALL WITNESSES IN HIS DEFENSE. SO THEY WON’T GIVE HIM THAT RIGHT. THEY TAKE HIS RIGHT TO COUNSEL. SHOKIN WANTS TO TESTIFY OPENLY AND POINT THE FINGER SAT BIDEN AND SAY HE’S A CROOK. THE MINUTE THE AFFIDAVIT CAME OUT THEY KNEW I HAD IT. THAT’S WHY THEY TRIED TO SILENCE ME. IT’S NO ACCIDENTAL I PUT THE AFFIDAVIT OF SHOKIN OUT. THREE HOURS LATER THEY SAY WE DEMAND THE PRESS NOT INTERVIEW HIM. WHO DOES THAT OTHER THAN SOMEBODY WHO THINKS THEY OWN THE PRESS. THEY ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY REPUTATION. I GET CALLS ABOUT DID YOU REPRESENT SOMEBODY 10 YEARS AGO OR DID YOU DO THIS OR DID YOU DO THAT? I SAY WHAT DOES IT MATTER. WHY DON’T YOU INVESTIGATE THE CASE FIRST THEN YOU CAN GO AFTER THE PROCESS. LOU: NO ONE WOULD HAVE A MORE PUBLIC RECORD IN HIS PROFESSION –>>IF THE MAFIA COULDN’T GET ME AND THE FARC, THESE PIPSQUEAKS AREN’T GOING TO GET ME. LOU: WE HAVE 30 SECONDS TO WRAP UP. THE TRANSCRIPT SAYS THERE IS NO ISSUE. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAS SO RULED. WHY IN THE WORLD — WHERE DO WE GO AND WHY CAN’T THIS BE CONCLUDED QUICKLY?>>BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS ARE ENGAGED IN AND I ILLEGAL CONSPIRACY TO TAKE HIM OUT OF OFFICE AT ANY COST. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF HE’S LEGAL OR ILLEGAL OR THEY PERPETUATE LIES. THIS IS A PLAN THAT STARTED WITH PETER STRZOK TO PREVENT HIM FROM GETTING INTO OFFICE AND THE UNDERSTAND PLAN WAS TO FRAME HIM IF HE GOT INTO OFFICE. THE FIRST ALLEGATION IS ONE THAT WAS SERIOUS. THE SECOND ONE IS A JOKE. THE CONVERSATION IS COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS. HE DOESN’T THREATENING WITH HE DOESN’T USE MONEY. JOE BIDEN DOES ALL THAT AND THEY ARE TRYING TO SUPPRESS IT. LOU: WHEN DO THE LAWSUITS WITH YOU AND THE PRESIDENT BEGIN?>>THEY TAKE TIME TO PUT TOGETHER. I GOT A WHOLE NEW SET OF ALLEGATIONS TODAY THAT COULD BE EVEN MORE SERIOUS. MAYBE NOT. I HAVEN’T CHECKED THEM OUT YET. LOU: YOU ARE JUST GUESSING?>>I AM NOT GUESSING. I HAVE HAD ALLEGATIONS THAT COME TO ME THAT TURN OUT TO BE TRUE. I HAVE ALLEGATIONS THAT ARE IDIOTIC, AND ALLEGATIONS I THINK HAVE TRUE BUT I CAN’T PROVE.

What Trump Pulling Out Of Iran Deal Shows Us, Eric Schneiderman, Cop Caught on Video, & More


Sup you beautiful bastards hope even a fantastic Tuesday welcome back to the Philip DeFranco show and let’s just jump into it the first thing we’re going to talk about today is Our D bag of the day Trevor King Trevor is a now retired police officer and and this story actually Starts late 2014 and King at that time was working with the Atlanta Police Department And at the same time was working loss prevention with Walmart in the whole crazy situation were about to jump into Starts with confusion about a tomato this tomato incident if you will took place at Walmart while Kane was working his loss prevention job here’s What happened King and another loss prevention? Associates see a man on a camera way at tomato Put it in his bag and stuff the bag in a satchel that man then proceeds to walk to the back of the Walmart around the store and then towards the door that guy is a man by the Name of Tyrone Carnegie turns out what actually happened was Tyrone was in the Walmart because he thought he was overcharged for tomatoes He had already purchased any return to weigh them and then speak to customer service So he wasn’t actually stealing you was double checking what King and the other laws prevention associate they don’t know this they assume that he’s stealing so they go to cut the man off and ask him about the tomato hurting a Claims he asking what’s up chief when he was stopped at the door King allegedly asked where he was going Carnegie says I’m going home King claims the man was asked repeatedly to head to the loss prevention office Carnegie refuses to comply and in a disputed piece of testimony King claims the Carnegie said do what you’ve got to do to the officer and then things escalate and there’s video of this you see King using his baton to beat the leg of Carnegie to get him on the ground and Then he does so afterwards there’s only around 7 seconds between Approaching Carnegie and him beating him as far as why he’s the baton instead of let’s say like a pepper Spray said he didn’t want to harm bystanders And as far as the beating during that beating King broke Carnegie’s Lake there bones sticking out of the skin And he ruptured an artery now Here’s where it goes from bad to worse King fishes the receipt for the tomato is out of Carnegie’s pocket But still has him arrested and while he was at the hospital for his injuries He was chained to the hospital bed and then sent to jail for three days so after all of this happens the charges end up Being dropped soon King is forced into retirement and after that criminal charges were filed against him in addition to a civil suit and during King’s trial in 2017 there was a mistrial But it was actually a good mistre during the trial he admitted to telling two different stories And police incident reports reportedly prosecutors did this to add more charges against King specifically falsifying a police report which fun fact It was revealed that King had a history of forging documents in testimony once in 2001 then in 2012 And now and in December of 2017 he was found guilty on two felony Counts willfully using unreasonable force and falsifying a police report and after all of that King yesterday was finally sentenced to five years In prison and will say it is good to see some justice also The Situation’s not over Carnegie is suing King the Atlanta PD And now is planning on filing a civil suit against Walmart We’ll have to wait to see what happens there But the main point of this story is trevor king is our douche bag of the day Then and quickly apparently it wasn’t enough news. Let’s talk about Equifax. They have now revealed new information Around that massive breach remember the one Equifax when we’re around one hundred forty six point six million Americans personal information including their social security Numbers were just vulnerable exposed Well apparently in addition to that fifty six thousand driver’s licenses passports and other IDs were stolen to Equifax giving this table to Congress to show how people were affected and Wow Also for those of you that just you can’t wait with this story for people to be held accountable Sorry because the other update to this story is that last week Equifax had a vote and Equifax shareholders voted to reelect three people who?

False-positive riddle and we have the honest trailer for 50 shades free if you want to see the full versions everything I just shared the secret link of the day anything at all links as always are in the description down below Then let’s talk about now former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman the reason we’re talking about Schneiderman is last night The New Yorker release accusations from four women against him of the four accusers Michele Manning barish and Tanya Selva rotten and went on the record while the two others did not and A big part of why these women said they came out that they were speaking against Schneiderman is they saw him out there speaking out against the Harvey Weinstein’s of the world They saw him becoming an advocate for women But they say they know a completely different side of him manning barish saying you cannot be a champion of women when you were hitting Them and choking them in bed and saying to them you’re a fucking whores overawe tanam saying this is a man who has staked his Entire career his personal narrative on being a champion for women publicly But he abuses them privately he needs he called out Manning bearish saying that about a month after they became physically involved He started to get abusive she describes one situation where they had been drinking that he called her a whore slapped her in the face Singh when she tried to fight back Schneider Ben held her down Using his body weight and began to choke her she ended up freeing herself. She was crying She says he accused her of scratching him and told her you know hitting an officer of the law is a felony in a big No the Manning bears really hits on here And she said this was under no Circumstances a sex game gone wrong this did not happen while we were having sex I was fully dressed and remained that way it was completely unexpected and shocking I did not consent to physical assault She says she tells her friends about this situation The New Yorker confirmed that with her friends But still she ends up going back tries to make the relationship work. It’s on and off during this relationship She says Sneiderman does continue to slap her during sex also saying that he would constantly try and get at a drink that he would Also, try and get drugs from her he’d constantly criticize How she looks what she ate she ended up losing 30 pounds during their Relationship or calling a time where she says he grabbed her face and said if you ever left me I’d kill you we also see similar accusations with silver And I’m saying he had said he would have to kill me if we broke up on multiple occasions He also told me he could have me followed and could tap my phone He also claims that Schneiderman slapped her saying it was at first as if he were testing me And I got stronger and harder. It wasn’t consensual. This wasn’t sexual play-acting this is abusive demeaning threatening behavior also
Saying he would choke her spit on her also saying he would insist she call him master and referred to her on multiple Occasions as his Brown slave that he would repeat that she was his property for the sake of time I’m talking about the accusations from the two main phases of this story, but a link down below So you can see the entirety of the story main point all these accusations Come out in the New Yorker and just three hours later Eric Schneiderman announces his resignation saying in a statement It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as Attorney General for the people of the state of New York in the last several hours serious allegations which I strongly contested made against me while these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the Operations of the office they will effectively prevent me from leading the offices work at this critical time I therefore resign my office effective at the close of business on May 8th 2018 and a separate statement on Twitter saying in the privacy of intimate relationships I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone I have never engaged in non-consensual sex which is a line I would not cross we also had Jennifer Cunningham Schneider ex-wife was worked as as political consultant saying in a statement I’ve known Eric for nearly 35 years as a husband father and friend these allegations are completely inconsistent with the man I know who has always been someone of the highest character outstanding values and a loving father I find it impossible to believe these allegations are true After Schneiderman’s resignation the Manhattan district attorney’s office said that they were opening an investigation into the allegations Against him and as far as reactions on Twitter Unsurprisingly conservative Twitter was having a field day Leon Conway Quilt tweeting and Eric Schneiderman tweet in the past night Ehrman said no one is above the law And I’ll continue to remind President Trump and his administration of that fact every day which Kellyanne tweeted gotcha from jr. Quote tweeting a Schneiderman tweet from the past should not have been said without the reporting of the New York Times in The New Yorker And the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment They endured at the hands of powerful men there would not be the critical national reckoning underway a well deserved honor from jr. Say self-awareness level zero or substantially less than that and Dana lash quote tweeting another Schneiderman tweet Which nederman said sexual assault survivors would happen to you is unconscionable you have your back and we are fighting for you Which Dana said literally fighting women is not the same as fighting for women people also dug up an old Trump tweet It’s from back in 2013 where Trump tweeted Weiner is gone Spitzer has gone next will be lightweight AG Eric Schneiderman Is he a crook wait and see worse than Spitzer or Weiner this had a lot of people questioning did Trump know specifically about this? Is that what he was referencing there was this kind of a New York? Secret one of the things of note in this story are the specific Allegations about choke Welsh Donovan was working as a New York State Senator He actually passed legislation that gave harsher sentencing to choking of all types the bail made life threatening strangulation a grave crime and criminalize less Serious cases involving quote an intent to impede breathing as misdemeanors punishable by up to a year in prison and at that time He said I’m just sorry it took us so long in New York State to do this and that’s interesting to me because it does Seem like a common thread with with Abusers and hypocrites that we’ve seen in the public before seems like a common thread and stories like this by being the the greatest Champion the loudest voice on a topic that’s that’s the perfect cover for example Tim Murphy pro-life politician pressuring his mistress to get an abortion or I mean you know it’s another story that we’ve talked about multiple times where you have The the pro-family of very very against gay rights and gay people Politician and it turns out they’re just on the down low so the question I want to pass off to you Here is do you have that same mindset when you see someone Very very outspoken on a topic does it doesn’t make you question them or no is that is that far too cynical? Also, what do you think about it when a public figure resigns or backs away from something, and they’re maintaining their innocence But they’re like it’s too much of a distraction You know like we’re seeing here with Schneiderman as we saw with Ronnie Jackson a few weeks ago you see that as a legitimate or a BS response and the last thing I want to talk about today is the Iran deal and To start things off let’s try to answer the question of what is the Iran nuclear deal? Which is actually important because according to new surveys that have come out a lot of people don’t know much about it so kind of The TLDR of this deal is it as an international agreement signed by six world powers and Iran and it’s steeply limits Iran’s nuclear enrichment and research in exchange for the removal of harsh, economic Sanctions against Iran the deal was signed in 2015 went into effect in 2016 has a 10-year life and requires verification by a third party International Atomic Energy Agency and also what I say Steve limitations I mean Steve limitation for example for 15 years one facility in Iran can enrich uranium up to three point six seven percent and for comparison’s sake Weapons-grade enriched uranium is around 90 percent Iran was also prohibited from having more than 660 pounds of enriched uranium Which was a 97 percent decrease prior to the deal Iran at around 20,000 centrifuges at these facilities with the deal Iran could only have 5060 of these centrifuges and there were older less efficient models And it looked like at least publicly that Iran was complying the rest of the countries with their sanctions they were complying But then on April 30th in walks an Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gives this presentation in English rather than Hebrew He opens the presentation showing Iranian leaders saying they do not and did not have a nuclear weapons program even says Iran lives Do you Ron like that has this dramatic unveiling of what he said amounted to? 55,000 pages of documents 183 CDs alleging that Iran hidden atomic archive of documents on its nuclear program the files reportedly detailing a program known as Project Ahmad which was an operation between 1999 and 2003 Netanyahu believing that the program continued in secret But a big thing of note here Is that Netanyahu provided no evidence that Iran had actually violated the nuclear accord Which went to effect in 2016? Experts and diplomats saying if the information presented provided some further detail on Iran’s nuclear program But provided no evidence of a breach on the agreement And that’s why I was widely considered by the international community as intelligence theater and that Netanyahu’s true audience was trumped Ryo would be aimed at Trump he had a self-imposed deadline of May 12th to make a decision on whether or not the US would Be pulling out of the Iran deal following Netanyahu’s presentation the International Atomic Energy Agency released a statement on the past that Netanyahu talked about they said although some activities took place after 2003 they were not part of a coordinated effort the agency also assessed that these activities did not advance beyond feasibility and scientific studies in the acquisition of certain relevant technical competences and capabilities And then adding the same report stated that the agency had no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009 we also had the EU foreign policy chief saying the IAEA has published ten reports certifying that Iran has fully complied with its commitments and then all of that brings us to President Trump Who hasn’t had the fact that he is not a fan of the Iran dede certified the deal in? October and although in January he did grant sanction relief to Iran that was quote only in order to secure our European allies his agreement To fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal and an important note here because once again there are been a lot of people Talking about Netanyahu whether Iran is actually complying or not I’ve had several problems with a deal that don’t have to do with Iran complying Or now he’s a problem with some of the terms of the deal expiring in 10 and 15 years He believes it allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon anyway He believes it fails to address Iran the ballistic missile program And he believes that it fails to address Iran’s regional influence and sponsorship of militant groups And there is also kind of this general mindset that they are getting a lot more Than we are getting out of it and today President Drum finally officially announced his decision. I am announcing today that the United States Will withdraw? from the Iran nuclear deal In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating u.s. nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons Could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States and during this announcement. He also hits on a few other notes He mentions Netanyahu’s presentation last week Israel published intelligence documents long concealed by Iran conclusively showing the Iranians regime and its history of pursuing nuclear weapons once again I think it is incredibly important to point out that they’re talking about something from 15 years ago on it should be noted that Iran Reportedly moved the atomic program documents in 2017 well We’re talking about the Iran nuclear deal once again signed in 2015 went into effect in 2016 That said he still hits on the note that it doesn’t even matter if Iran is complying the agreement was so poorly negotiated that even if Iran fully complies The regime can still be on the verge of a nuclear breakout in just a short Period of time you also that mention the monitoring mechanisms that he feels are inadequate the deals inspection provisions lack adequate mechanisms to prevent detect and punish cheating and Don’t even have the unqualified right to inspect many important locations including military Facilities unless know the president is kind of right and wrong There are some limitations on what can be inspected for? Non-nuclear military facilities as far as the nuclear sites and other facilities that there’s full and unrestricted access the following all of this the president then signed a memorandum to Reinstate sanctions on Iran’s nuclear program now as far as when the sanctions will go into effect what the sanctions will be That we will learn soon there could be a delay of five or six months before Sanctions went into place and even though Trump made this announcement just as we were finishing today’s show obviously there have been a ton of Reaction so I’m like Netanyahu and Lindsey Graham praising the president for this move others including our European allies criticizing the move one of the most meaningful Responses especially since the question right now is okay well
What happens next came from Iran’s president who according to the APS that if negotiations fail? Islamic Republic will enrich uranium more than before in next week’s and personally for me in my response to this is I’m torn I’m not a fan of Iran’s government and kind of what the deal in general did was it it pushed the threat down the road It could also be kind of viewed as a sort of nuclear blackmail But also on the other hand as far as public information goes it looked like it wasn’t something that we were having to address Right now and with the president pulling out in this manner it does raise the question of how can our allies or anyone else that we could potentially make a deal with trust us and if At any time, there’s a change of administration or what-have-you that the America might just pull out for me personally I need to think on it more and also see what happen things are ramping up And we will have to see what happens next But of course with this being the Philip DeFranco show that’s the story and now we want to hear from you What are your thoughts about the move presidents from maids a day? What do you think will happen next I’d love to know your thoughts in those comments down below That’s where I’m going to end today’s show remember if you like the video you like what I try and do on this channel hit That like button if you’re new here hit that subscribe button ring that bell makes your notifications are on also

IT IS A VICIOUS ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED GROUP IDEOLOGICALLY, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO THE DESTRUCTION OF EVERYONE IN THEIR WAY.>>WELL, WHAT’S INTERESTING ABOUT IT, LOU, IS IT IS THAT, BUT IT’S ALSO — WHAT THEY HAVE DECIDED TO DO IS WE HAVE A LEGITIMATELY ELECTED PRESIDENT UNDER THE CONSTITUTION. THEY HAVE NEVER ACCEPTED THE RESULT. THEY HAVE USED GOVERNMENTAL POWER, SUBPOENA POWER IN AN ABUSIVE VINDICTIVE WAY. THEY HAVE EMBARRASSED THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, THE COMMITTEE SYSTEM. THEY CONTINUE TO DO IT. AND THEY ARE — WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS UNDERMINING CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. THEY’RE NOT TRYING TO SAVE THE GOVERNMENT. THEY’RE TRYING TO DESTROY THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THEY CANNOT STAND THAT DONALD TRUMP WON AND HILARY CLINTON LOST. IT’S — WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL. LOU: WHY IS THERE NO — THERE’S NO FIRE IN THE BELLY AS IT SEEMS OF ANY REPUBLICAN, CERTAINLY IN THIS TOWN, YOU CAN GO THROUGH AND NAME A LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT THIS IS THE MOST PASSIVE DEFERENTIAL GROUP OF VICTIMS I HAVE EVER SEEN, AT ANYTHING APPROACHING NATIONAL POLITICS. IT’S SOMETHING –>>EXCEPT FOR THE PRESIDENT. LOU: I’M SORRY?>>EXCEPT FOR THE PRESIDENT. HE’S THE FIGHTER.>>HE’S THE FOCAL POINT OF IT ALL. HE’S THE ONLY ONE IN THIS TOWN WITH THE GUTS, THE INTELLIGENCE AND FRANKLY THE IDEAS TO SAVE THIS REPUBLIC AND THAT’S DRIVING THE LEFT NUTS. IT IS ALSO THE VESTED INTEREST ON THE RIGHT, PARTICULARLY THE CORPORATE AMERICA AND THE ESTABLISHMENT ALIGNED AGAINST LEFTIST AND SOCIALISTS ON THE LEFT. IT IS — IT IS RIDICULOUS WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.>>THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NEVER ACCEPTED DONALD TRUMP, AND HE SAID YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON’T NEED YOU. I’M GOING TO GET ELECTED ANYWAY. AND THEY RESENTED IT AND A LOT OF THEM WERE AFRAID OF HIM. IN 2018, THE ONES WHO DIDN’T EMBRACE HIM LOST BIG-TIME AND THE ONES WHO DID EMBRACE HIM WERE ABLE TO WIN. THIS IS ABOUT A PARTY THAT REALLY DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT WANTS TO BE. LOU: IT’S ALSO ABOUT A JUDICIAL SYSTEM THAT REALLY IS A — THERE’S A FOUL STENCH TO THE WHOLE COURT SYSTEM IN THIS COUNTRY. WE CAN GO CATALOG THESE DECISIONS AGAINST THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND THEY ARE UNRESERVEDLY DEMOCRATIC. THEY ARE APPOINTED BY OBAMA. THEY ARE APPOINTED BY CLINTON OR GEORGE W. BUSH WHO APPARENTLY DIDN’T CARE VERY MUCH AT ALL ABOUT WHO HE PUT ON THE BENCH.>>THE CHIEF JUSTICES THERE ARE NO OBAMA JUDGES AND TRUMP JUDGES, DIDN’T YOU HEAR HIM SAY THAT? LOU: I DID HEAR JOHN ROBERTS SAY THAT.>>AS LONG AS I’M TALKING ABOUT JOHN ROBERTS, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HE’S DONE ABOUT THE FISA COURT BECAUSE THAT’S THE COURT THAT BOTHERS ME A LOT.>>HIS COURT, HE’S IN CHARGE OF IT.>>– APPLICATIONS AND WHAT WAS DONE HERE — LOU: I’M BEING TOLD THAT WE’VE GOT TO LEAVE IT HERE.>>WE ALWAYS HAVE SUCH FUN. LOU: WE DO AND I ALWAYS LEARN SO MUCH.

Barr’s biggest challenge will be restoring trust to DOJ: Whitaker


JOINING ME NOW WITH MORE ON THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, WHETHER IT’S POSING AS TRANSPORT OR WORKING THAT WAY, BLOCKING THE PUBLIC VIEW OF THE MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS OF SPY GATE, FOR ACTING U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL MATTHEW WHITAKER, GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US. AS YOU MAY GAUGE, I’M A LITTLE FRUSTRATED WITH THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT THAT IS MOVING WITH SO LITTLE, I HAVE EVERY REASON TO BELIEVE THAT WILLIAM BARR IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR THE RIGHT JOB AT THE RIGHT TIME. TOO MANY PEOPLE I RESPECT IMMENSELY AND I ACCEPT THAT. WHAT I CANNOT ACCEPT IS ANY MORE OF THE NONSENSE, THIS IS SOMETHING TRANSPARENT. WHY FOR EXAMPLE, WE NOT HAVE THE SCOPE IN FRONT OF US RIGHT NOW.>>WHY WOULD THAT NOT BE IN FRONT OF THE MARKET PEOPLE?>>IMS PRICE THEY WERE NOT PART OF MILLER’S REPORT. HE SEEMS TO PUT EVERY OTHER WORD INTO THAT REPORT IN THE 448 PAGES IN THOSE MEMOS OR SOMETHING THAT I THINK WOULD ELIMINATE SOME PEOPLE AS TO WHAT THE INVESTIGATION WAS AND WASN’T.>>THERE WERE SCOPE MEMOS AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE WILL LEARN IN THOSE MEMOS IS WHAT CRIMES WERE BEING INVESTIGATED, AND I THINK TO SOME EXTENT, IT MAY OR MAY NOT HELP US WITH THE ORIGINS OF THIS INVESTIGATION. LOU: WE NEED THE RIGHT AS AMERICANS TO SEE THESE DOCUMENTS, WE DON’T NEED NONSENSE ATTORNEYS SITTING IN SOME GOVERNMENT OFFICE DECIDING WHO THE HELL WE ARE.>>I AGREE ON ONE THING THE BAR DID THIS SHOULD APPLY TO THE SCOPING MEMOS. TO MAKE SURE THOSE THAT WERE NOT IMPLICATED OR CHARGED WITH A CRIME ARE NOT NAMED AS TARGET OR SUBJECTS OF THE INVESTIGATION.>>THAT IS WHAT I FEAR, PART TWO OF THE MUELLER REPORT WAS NOT ONLY UNNECESSARY BUT A DANGEROUS STANDARD, NOW WE VET ALL OF THE EVIDENCE AGAINST PEOPLE BE INVESTIGATED AND THAT IS VERY DANGEROUS.>>WE NOW HAVE SCOPE MEMOS, MAYBE MORE, WHO KNOWS HOW OFTEN THEY WERE ADJUSTING AND INNOVATING, BUT WE ALSO DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LEADER LAPTOP, ALL OF THE E-MAILS AND ALL THE EVIDENCE, WE DON’T KNOW WHY THE NSA HAS PROVIDED US 33000 MISSING, CLAYTON E-MAILS AND WHY THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS HAS BEEN ATTRIBUTABLE WITHOUT QUESTION OVER THE COURSE OF THREE YEARS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR THIS PRESIDENT AND IT IS TIME TO ACT LIKE A PUBLIC SERVANT INSTEAD OF A BUNCH OF LEADERS WHO ARE HAVING A SECRET HANDSHAKE, IT’S OBSCENE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY AND PEOPLE WILL NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THAT.>>I DON’T HAVE ANY OF PROBLEM ACKNOWLEDGING THE MARKET PEOPLE DESERVE ABSOLUTE TRANSPARENCY ESPECIALLY ON HOW THE INVESTIGATIONS WERE STARTED AND HOW THE PRESIDENT WAS ADDED TO THE INVESTIGATION AND THE SPECIAL COUNSEL, I THINK IS ALL QUESTIONS AND WE NEED TO HAVE ANSWERS. SOME OF THIS, YOU EITHER ACCEPT WHAT HAS BEEN LAID OUT — AND THIS IS WHAT BILL BARR BIGGEST CHALLENGES, RESTORING THE TRUST AND THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.>>EVERY QUESTION, EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD PUT ON THE TABLE. DO WE AGREE?>>THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS I’VE BEEN CALLING FOR A LONG, AND PUSHING FOR. IN ASKING THE SAME EXACT QUESTIONS, WHEN BILL BARR STOOD IN FRONT OF THE MARKET PEOPLE, I’M ASKING THE QUESTIONS I CANNOT GET THE ANSWERS, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THEM, I HAD

Seriously? Register Every Gun in the US? – The Legal Brief


Welcome back to The Legal Brief, the show
where we CRUSH the various legal myths and misinformation surrounding various areas of
the gun world. I’m your host Adam Kraut and today we’re taking
a look at the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act. Prepare to get angry. Earlier this year, everyone’s favorite Congresswoman
Sheila Jackson Lee introduced the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act. The bill itself was introduced at towards
the end of July and only recently did the text become available. So what does the bill do? First, it would authorize the Attorney General,
through the ATF, to establish a system for the licensing of firearms or ammunition and
for the registration of each firearm present in the US with ATF. You heard that correctly, she wants every
gun in the US to be registered. For the registration system itself, it would
require the owners to identify the make, model, serial number, date acquired, where the firearm
is or will be stored, and identify themselves. I’m already sensing if this somehow were
passed, there’d be a lot of responses about the bottom of some lake somewhere. Owners of firearms would also have to file
a notice that specifies the identity of individuals to whom the firearm might be loaned. The AG would be responsible for establishing
and maintaining the database of all firearms registered. Even more amusing, is that the contents shall
be accessible to not only federal, state and local law enforcement, branches of the armed
forces, and state and local governments but also all members of the public. All members of the public…nothing could
possibly go wrong with that…And this is just the registration part… The licensing aspect would require the AG
to issue a license to anyone over 21 who passes a NICS check, undergoes a psychological evaluation
that concludes they are not psychologically unsuited to possess a firearm, completes a
training course that is at least 24 hours long and demonstrates that they will have
in effect an insurance policy. Nothing like adding a license, psych eval,
mandatory training and insurance to exercise a constitutionally protected right. But it gets better, license types also include
those for antique firearms and “military-style” weapons. The bill also describes the requirements for
the psych evaluation, which includes, at the discretion of the psychologist, the evaluation
of other members of the household. They must also interview the person’s spouse,
former spouses, or two individuals who are a member of the family or an associate of
the person applying for a license. The bill also includes provisions for the
denial, suspension or revocation of a license. On top of that for the first 5 years, the
license expires yearly, after which it switches to a three year renewal cycle. And let’s not forget the insurance provision. The bill would require that the AG issue an
insurance policy to anyone who has applied for a license and paid the required fee. It’ll only cost $800 a year. F*%k the poor, right? The bill also prohibits a person from possessing
firearms or ammunition unless they are carrying an issued license, with the firearm being
registered to them. If it is registered to someone else, they
better have notified the AG and be within the time period specified. It’d be unlawful to transfer a firearm or
ammunition to anyone without a license and if you’re giving a gift, you better notify
the AG of that too. And you better have that insurance. Penalties for violations range from a fine
of $5,000-$150,000 and 5 to 25 years imprisonment. And as a final blow, the bill would make it
unlawful to possess .50 caliber ammunition and “large capacity” magazine feeding
devices. As you can see, this bill would create a whole
host of constitutional concerns. On top of that, it would disproportionately
affect the poor. I mean, clearly they don’t have a right
to self defense…That sounds like something Joe Biden would say. That’s it for this episode, if you have learned

Dems aren’t serious about contempt: Robert Ray


KENNEDY: THANK YOU TRISH, IT’S A POLITICAL STANDOFF WHICH WE HAVE NOT SEEN IN ABOUT A GENERATION. THE WHITE HOUSE INVOKING EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE TO BLOCK THE RELEASE OF THE FULL MUELLER REPORT. IT COMES THE SAME DAY DEMOCRATS WANTED TO HOLD. WILLIAM BARR IN CONTEMPT, CALLING IT A COST INTENTIONAL CRISIS IN TRYING TO TAKE IT OUT THE WAY TO THIS REPORT. COMING FROM PANAMA CITY, FLORIDA. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S IS ALL A BUNCH OF NONSENSE.>>ALMOST $40 MILLION, 20 TOM PETERS, DEMOCRATS, CALLED HIM ANGRY DEMOCRATS. AFTER TWO YEARS NOT SEEN A COLLISION. AND NOW THE DEMOCRATS WITH A GREAT ATTORNEY GENERAL, THEY ARE SAYING WE WANT MORE, IT WAS GOING TO BE LIKE WE WANT THE MUELLER REPORT NOW THEY SAY, MUELLER REPORT, NO WE WANT TO START OVER. IT IS A DISGRACE. KENNEDY: THE WAY, THE PRESIDENT IS STILL SPEAKING, WE WILL DIP INTO THE RALLY, DON’T YOU WORRY ABOUT THAT. LET’S GET BACK TO THE VOTE ON CAPITOL HILL, THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE THIS AFTERNOON BOATING TO HOLD BAR IN CONTEMPT, DEMOCRATS DID IT AFTER HE REFUSED TO TURN OVER THE FULL REJECTED MUELLER REPORT TO THEM AND IT CAME AFTER EXPLOSIVE PARTISAN FIGHTING ALL DAY LONG. CHECK THIS OUT.>>NO PERSON, AND CERTAINLY NOT THE TOP 1% OF THE COUNTRY CAN BE PERMITTED FOR THE WILL OF CONGRESS AND TO PROVIDE A VALID SUBPOENA, NO PERSON THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR PERSON CAN BE ABOVE THE LAW. DEMOCRATS HAVE NO PLAN, NO PURPOSE AND NO AGENDA BEYOND THE ATTACKING OF THIS MINISTRATION. IF IT WERE FOR HIM BE A PRESIDENT, HE WOULD BE IN PRISON WITH MICHAEL COHEN TODAY AS INDIVIDUAL ONE AND OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE AS A MUELLER REPORT SAYS IS SO, WE ARE IN DANGER, WE NEED TO RESPOND AND WE NEED TO ACT FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.>>IS ALL ABOUT TRYING TO DESTROY BILL BARR, THEY ARE SCARED HE IS GOOD TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF EVERYTHING, HE WILL FIND OUT HOW AND WHY THIS INVESTIGATION STARTED IN THE FIRST BY.>>HER DEMOCRATIC COLLIES HAVE WEAPONIZE ARE RESPONSE ABILITIES. IN MOVING TO HOLD THE AG IN CONTEMPT IS NOT ONLY PREMATURE, UNPRECEDENTED AND UNWARRANTED, IT IS SHAMEFUL. WE BELIEVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER. KENNEDY: CHAIRMAN NADLER RAN RIGHT TO THE NEAREST MICROPHONE AS YOU CAN IMAGINE SCREAMING THAT THE WHITE HOUSE, TOO MUCH POWER FROM CONGRESS.>>THERE CAN BE NO HIGHER STAKES THAN THIS ATTEMPT TO IRRIGATE ALL POWER TO THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH AWAY FROM CONGRESS AND MORE IMPORTANT FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE HAVE TALKED FROM A LONG TIME ABOUT APPROACHING A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS, WE ARE NOW IN A. WE ARE NOW IN A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS. KENNEDY: A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS IS NOT GOING TO MAINTAIN THE HOUSE OR WIN THE PRESIDENCY, GO BACK TO THE IDEA BOARD. BETWEEN THE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE OVER THE MUELLER REPORT AND HOLDING BARR IN CONTEMPT, IS THIS REALLY A CRISIS FOR THE NATION OR DO THE DEMOCRATS NEED TO CHILL. ROBERT RAY WITH ME, WELCOME TO THE SHOW.>>NICE TO BE WITH YOU.>>LET’S TALK ABOUT ATTEMPT FROM THE LEGAL SIDE AND HOW THIS IS PLAYED OUT WITH THE PATH OF THE FORMER AG, HARRIET MYERS, LOIS LERNER AND THE OTHERS WHO HAVE BEEN SUBJECT TO CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS, BUT NOTHING EVER HAPPENS DOES IT?>>THIS ONE IS STRIKING. REMINDER VIEWERS, BILL BARR HAS ONLY BEEN IN OFFICE LESS THAN THREE MONTHS AND LO AND BEHOLD HE NOW FINDS HIMSELF IN THE MIDDLE OF CONTEMPT PROCEEDING WHICH IS A RATHER EXTRAORDINARY DEVELOPMENT, MOST OF THE TIME IT HAPPENS, IT ENDS UP IN LITIGATION AND IT FIZZLES OUT. BECAUSE THE COURT SYSTEM OBVIOUSLY TAKES MUCH LONGER THAN ANY OTHER WAY TO SPEEDILY RESOLVE THE DISPUTE. BUT THE OTHER STRIKING THING TO ME ABOUT, TODAY DURING THE NEGOTIATION WHICH CONTINUED ON APPARENTLY THROUGH LAST EVENING, THE DEMOCRATS WERE PREPARED TO OFFER THAT IS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF DEPARTMENT JUSTICE AGREED TO GO TO COURT TO SEEK AN ORDER TO RELEASE THE GRAND JURY MATERIAL, THEY WOULD DROP THE CONTEMPT PROCEEDINGS, THAT TELLS YOU ALL YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW. THEY ARE NOT REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT CONTEMPT, CONTEMPT WAS A MEANS OF LEVERAGE IN ORDER TO GETTING ACCESS TO MORE OF THE REPORT, WHICH THEY KNOW THEY CANNOT BECAUSE THE JURY NADLER, A PROFILE IN COWARDICE WANTS TO HAVE ABOUT THREE. HE DOES NOT WANT TO ACTUALLY SAY WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS AN IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING AND HE KNOWS THAT HE HAS TO SAY THAT UNDER THE LAW IN ORDER TO HAVE A CREDIBLE APPLICATION BEFORE A COURT TO UNSEAL THE GRAND JURY MAKE UNDER MATERIAL. KENNEDY: HE CAN LOOK AT THE UNREDACTED PORT UNDER REPORT. HE HAS WARNED THEM THAT THEY CAN DO THAT AND HE COULD GO BACK AND INFORM HIS CAUCUS, HE CANNOT STAFF MEMBERS TAKE NO AND KEEP THOSE NOTES –>>IS REALLY ABOUT PROCEDURE, THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, WE WILL BRING IT TO YOU, WILL MAKE IT AVAILABLE, WHILE I WANT TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO TAKE NOTES AND TALK TO MY COLLEAGUES, IS A WHOLE LOT ABOUT PROCEDURE WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING REALLY SERIOUS WHICH IS CONTEMPT AND THAT IS JUST THE BOOTSTRAP FOR WHAT NATALIE WANTS TO DO JUST TO ARGUE THERE’S A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS WHEN THERE IS NOT ONE. KENNEDY: THIS SHOULD BE WITHHELD, AND CLEAR OF ALL ACTIONS, IS SOMETHING VERY SERIOUS, UNTIL THERE IS A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS AND THE HELP OF THE NATION IS AT RISK, AND LOSING THE MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE, THAT DOES NOT NEED THE PARTIAL, THAT IS WHEN YOU GET INTO REALLY DANGEROUS TERRITORY IN TERMS OF WHO THE VOTERS, PEOPLE ALREADY DO NOT LIKE CONGRESS, THEY DISTRUST CONGRESS, PRESIDENT IS ENJOYING BETTER APPROVAL RATING RIGHT NOW IN THE WAKE OF THE MUELLER REPORT BUT HE STILL HAS AN ISSUE WITH THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK WE ARE VERY FAMILIAR, HOW MUCH OF A THREAT AS OPPOSED TO THE PRESIDENT.>>I SUPPOSE THEORETICALLY IT DOES, BUT IF YOU LOOK TO THE MEDIA, IS SUGGEST ALMOST THAT THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK IS AN ISLAND, IT IS NOT AN ISLAND, IT IS, LAST TIME I CHECKED, PART OF THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. INTERVAL TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. CERTAINLY TO SIGNIFICANT AND HIGH-PROFILE MATTERS YOU ARE EXPECTED TO BE CLOSE SUPERVISION AND EXERCISE BY NOW THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES JUST AS IT WAS PREVIOUSLY, AT LEAST CERTAINLY WITH REGARDS TO MATTERS INVOLVING RUSSIA AND ANYTHING RELATED TO THE PRESIDENT, WOULD’VE BEEN

AG Barr making major changes to immigration courts


MILLION CASES. JOINING ME NOW, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL VICE PRESIDENT. ART, GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN. HAVE WE FINALLY FOUND A WAY AROUND SOME OF THESE ASYLUM RULES THAT HAVE BEEN SUCH A LURE FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION?>>WELL, I MEAN, THIS CERTAINLY IS SOMETHING HUGE THAT IS GOING TO HELP, AND I WILL ADD, NOT ONLY IS IT SOMETHING THAT HELPS STOP THESE ASYLUM CLAIMS, BUT PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT DETAINING THESE INDIVIDUALS LONGER, BUT WHAT IT IS GOING TO DO, IT IS GOING TO GIVE IMMIGRATION OFFICERS THE TIME TO TALK TO THESE PEOPLE AND DETERMINE WHO IS AN ACTUAL GUARDIAN OF THESE MINORS AND WHO IS NOT. DAVID: GREAT POINT.>>YOU HAVE GOT TO REMEMBER, THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION IS BRINGING THESE KIDS KNOWING HEY WITHIN 20 DAYS, WE WILL BE RELEASED, SO WHAT’S HAPPENING IS THEY ARE USING THESE MINORS AS PAWNS FOR THEIR CRIMINAL GAME. WE DON’T KNOW IF SOME OF THESE KIDS ARE ACTUALLY RELATED TO THESE INDIVIDUALS. THIS GIVES IMMIGRATION THE EXTRA TIME SO WE CAN FIGURE OUT IF THESE ARE LEGITIMATE NOT ONLY LEGITIMATE ASYLUM CLAIMS, BUT WE NEED TO SEE IF THEY ARE LEGITIMATELY FAMILY MEMBERS, AND THAT IS IMPORTANT. I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYBODY WOULD AGAINST IT. TO BE AGAINST SOMETHING LIKE THIS MEANS YOU REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT THESE CHILDREN. DAVID: IT IS EXTRAORDINARY THAT THE LEFT HAS KIDNAPPED THE WHOLE IDEA OF COMPASSION. THEY SAY, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE THE ONLY ONES WITH THE COMPASSION, YET, I THINK IT IS VERY UNCOMPASSIONATE — IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF COMPASSION TO ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE PUT IN THE HAND OF SMUGGLERS, SMUGGLERS WHO ARE NOT RELATED TO THEM.>>DEFINITELY, IT HAS CREATED A MAGNET TO ALLOW THESE INDIVIDUALS, ONE, TO BREAK OUR LAWS, TWO, TO MAKE FALSE CLAIMS TO ASYLUM AND DEFINITELY IT’S PUT KIDS AT RISK. THANK GOD THAT WE HAVE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX, THAT ARE GOING FORWARD WITH THIS AND REALISTICALLY THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE CREDIT THEY DESERVE, BUT NOT ONLY ARE THEY STOPPING FALSE ASYLUM, THEY ARE SAVING A LOT OF KIDS’ LIVES AND THAT’S IMPORTANT. DAVID: LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS GETTING INVOLVED IN THIS. WE HAVE A TERRIFIC ATTORNEY GENERAL RIGHT NOW WHO IS OPERATING ON SO MANY FRONTS, BUT ONE OF THOSE FRONTS IS IMMIGRATION. HE WANTS TO APPOINT TOUGHER IMMIGRATION JUDGES. APPARENTLY THERE HAVE BEEN JUDGES THAT HAVE BEEN PERFECTLY OKAY WITH A MILLION CASES BACKLOGGED IN THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM, BUT THERE ARE OTHER JUDGES WHO ARE MUCH TOUGHER, WANT TO SEE THAT CLEARED OUT. WILL THAT HELP?>>I MEAN, I DON’T SEE IT AS THEM APPOINTING TOUGHER JUDGES. I SEE IT AS THEY ARE APPOINTING JUDGES THAT WILL BE EFFICIENT AND GET THE JOB DONE, AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE DONE. THE AMOUNT OF BACKLOGGED CASES IS JUST RIDICULOUS. AND I THINK THE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS HAVE EXPLOITED THAT, AND THEY’VE USED THAT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE, KNOWING FULLY WELL THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS WILL BE JUST CAUGHT AND LEASED IN THE COUNTRY — RELEASED IN THE COUNTRY. DAVID: OF COURSE THEY HAVE. BACK HOME AND WHAT INNOCENT U.S. CITIZENS ARE GOING THROUGH AS A RESULT OF SOME OF THIS CRISIS, NOT ONLY THOSE ON THE BORDER, BUT ONCE THE ILLEGALS SPREAD OUT AND DO NOT ACTUALLY GO BACK TO THE CORRIDORS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO AND SETTLE ELSEWHERE. A LOT OF THEM ARE CRIMINALS. NEW DATA FROM THE DOJ ON FEDERAL ARREST OVER ILLEGALS, OVER A 20 YEAR PERIOD, I WAS UNAWARE THAT 64% OF ALL FEDERAL ARRESTS WERE OF NON-U.S. CITIZENS. 64% WERE NON-U.S. CITIZENS.>>AND WHAT’S RIDICULOUS IS YOU HEAR INDIVIDUALS THAT THEY WANT TO MAKE UP FOR THAT, AND THEY SAY WELL, WE HAVE CRIMINALS IN THE UNITED STATES. I KNOW WE HAVE CRIMINALS HERE. BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN WE NEED TO START IMPORTING ANYMORE. WE’RE NOT AGAINST IMMIGRATION. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE CLEAR ABOUT THAT. WE’RE VERY PRO-IMMIGRATION. BUT WE’RE PRO-LEGAL IMMIGRATION. THERE’S A RIGHT WAY TO DO THINGS, AND THERE’S A WRONG WAY TO DO THINGS. DAVID: YOU DON’T WANT CRIMINALS COMING IN, AND YOU WANT PEOPLE COMING IN WHO ARE GOING TO BE WORKING HARD AND WHO WE NEED. THAT’S ANOTHER REASON WHY WE’VE GOT TO GET TO A MERIT-BASED SYSTEM, A SYSTEM WHERE WE’RE ABLE TO DECIDE WHO COMES IN AND WE DO HAVE JOBS AVAILABLE FOR PEOPLE WITH PARTICULAR SKILLS, TRY TO MATCH THOSE PEOPLE WITH THOSE JOB NEEDS THAT WE HAVE.>>THE SIMPLEST WAY I HAVE EXPLAINED IT TO PEOPLE, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE AISLE, OR THE LEFT SIDE OF THE AISLE, WHEN YOU ARE AT HOME, YOU WANT INDIVIDUALS TO KNOCK ON YOUR DOOR, AND YOU WANT TO MAKE THE DECISION ON WHO YOU ALLOW IN YOUR HOME, AND WHO YOU DON’T, YOU WANT INDIVIDUALS BREAKING THROUGH YOUR WINDOWS OR COMING IN UNANNOUNCED. THAT’S WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO. WE SHOULD HAVE IT AT OUR NATION’S BORDERS. DAVID: THAT’S A GOOD ANALYSIS. THE CBP WASN’T APPARENTLY COLLECTING DNA SAMPLES FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. THAT WAS A PROBLEM WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHO IS WHO, WHO IS RELATED TO WHOM, WHETHER A PERSON HAS A BACKGROUND OR JUST GETTING THE DNA SAMPLES SO YOU CAN TRACK THAT PERSON IF THEY DO GET INVOLVED IN CRIMINAL ACTIVITY. IS THAT CHANGING NOW?>>THAT SHOULD BE CHANGING, AND HONESTLY, A LOT OF THESE CHANGES THAT ARE HAPPENING, YOU KNOW, I SOUND LIKE I’M CHEERLEADING, BUT THE HONEST TO GOODNESS TRUTH IS, WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT’S CARING ABOUT THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT’S CARING ABOUT AMERICAN CITIZENS AND MOVING FORWARD, I HOPE IT CONTINUES, BUT WE’RE VERY GRATEFUL RIGHT NOW. WE’RE IN A POSITION RIGHT NOW WHERE WE CAN’T TAKE A STEP BACK, AND AS I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES BEFORE, ILLEGAL IS NOT A RACE. STOP MAKING IT ABOUT RACE. DAVID: ABSOLUTELY.>>WE ALL NEED TO START BEHAVING LIKE AMERICANS. DAVID: ABSOLUTELY. WE’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THAT LATER IN THE PROGRAM, BUT TO PUT THIS IN A RACIAL CONTEXT IS ABSURD.

AG Barr defends handling of Mueller report in Senate hearing


NEIL? NEIL: ALL RIGHT, HILLARY, THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH. FORMER DEPUTY ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL TOM DUPREE WHAT HE MAKES OF THIS. ALWAYS GOOD TO HAVE YOU. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.>>THANK YOU, NEIL. NEIL: THIS IS COMING FROM BILL BARR, I WAS PARAPHRASING TAKING NOTES EARLIER WHILE HE WAS SPEAKING, HE, REFERRING TO MUELLER, COULDN’T DECIDE ABOUT OBSTRUCTION SO ESSENTIALLY BILL BARR DID BY SAYING THERE WASN’T ENOUGH THERE TO GO AFTER THE PRESIDENT AND NOT ENOUGH TO EXONERATE THE PRESIDENT. WHAT DID GET WRONG? IT SOUNDS LIKE EXACTLY WHAT THE REPORT KIND OF CONCLUDED?>>THAT’S RIGHT. I THINK IN THAT RESPECT IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND FAULT IN WHAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL INITIALLY REPORTED AS FAR AS MUELLER’S CONCLUSIONS. SEEMS LIKE AREA OF DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN BARR AND THE SPECIAL COUNSEL IS THAT THE SPECIAL COUNSEL WANTED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO PROVIDE MORE UNDERLYING CONTEXT WHY MUELLER REACHED THE DECISIONS THAT HE DID. BARR TESTIFIED TODAY THAT HIS FOCUS WAS ON DELIVERING THE BOTTOM LINE VERDICT OF THE MUELLER REPORT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, TO GET THE NEWS OUT OF BOTTOM LINE CONCLUSION IN AN FISH ENFASHION. IT SOUNDS LIKE WHAT BOB MUELLER WANT AD LITTLE MORE DETAILED EXPLANATION WHAT LED MUELLER TO REACH THE VERDICTS THAT HE DID. NEIL: ALL RIGHT. THAT WOULD HAVE NECESSITATED DELAY GETTING THE REPORT OUT TO PROVIDE MORE OF THAT CONTEXT. MAYBE MUELLER WOULD HAVE BEEN OKAY WITH THAT? WHAT IS YOUR SENSE?>>THAT IS THE THING. IF WE TURN THE CLOCK BACK A FEW WEEKS AGO WHEN EVERYONE WAS EAGER TO FIGURE OUT WHAT MUELLER CONCLUDED. IT WAS OVER A WEEKEND. WE WERE WATCHING ON TV, WHAT MUELLER FOUND, WHAT HE DIDN’T FIND. OUT OF THAT CONTEXT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL BASICALLY SPENT THE ENTIRE WEEKEND IN HIS OFFICE TO GO THROUGH THE REPORT TO, PROVIDE A SUCCINCT BOTTOM LINE DESCRIPTION WHAT HE FOUND. ATTORNEY GENERAL KNEW IN A FEW DAYS OR WEEKS THE REPORT AS A WHOLE WOULD BECOME PUBLIC. THERE WOULD NOT REALLY BEEN A MOTIVE ON PART OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO LIE OR DISSEMBLE KNOWING THE WHOLE THING WOULD BECOME A PUBLIC DOCUMENT IN MATTER OF DAYS. NEIL: DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID, WHAT MUELLER SAID WAS THE PROBLEM THE WAY THE PRESS PORTRAYED THOSE FINDINGS WITHOUT THAT CONTEXT AND THAT BUGGED HIM?>>I SUSPECT IN FACT WHAT WAS BOTHERING BOB MUELLER. WE KNOW AS SOON AS THE REPORT CAME OUT AND BARR SUMMARIZED REPORT, THERE WAS A LOT OF PRESS BASICALLY SAYING TOTAL VINDICATION ON THE COLLUSION PART. MUELLER DIDN’T REACH A CONCLUSION ON THE OBSTRUCTION PART BUT BARR REACHED THE CONCLUSION THERE IS NO OBSTRUCTION. I THINK WHAT MUELLER WANT AD LITTLE MORE NUANCE INTO WHY MUELLER DIDN’T FIND OBSTRUCTION. AND I THINK FROM MUELLER’S PERSPECTIVE BARR WAS SUGGESTING THAT MUELLER WAS BASICALLY AGNOSTIC ON THIS ISSUE WHEN AS WE KNOW FROM THE REPORT MUELLER OFFERED SOME REASONS AS TO HIS ULTIMATE DECISION NOT TO REACH A CONCLUSION ON THAT PIECE OF THE INVESTIGATION. NEIL: TALKING ABOUT AGNOSTIC, YOU’RE THE EXPERT, I READ A PROMPTER SO I THINK I QUALIFY, ANYWAY MUELLER COULDN’T DECIDE ON THAT ISSUE, RIGHT? SO THAT SEEMED TO SURPRISE BARR AND BY EXTENSION THE OUTGOING DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD ROSENSTEIN THAT HE HADN’T REACHED A FORMAL CONCLUSION, WHEN I GUESS BOTH OF THESE GENTLEMEN THOUGHT HE WOULD. SO THEY TOOK THE LIBERTY TO TIE, PUT A BOW ON IT, EVEN WHEN THEY DIDN’T DEFINITELY CONCLUDE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER WHICH WAS THE GIST OF MUELLER’S FINDING?>>RIGHT. I THINK FROM THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S PERSPECTIVE THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS TASKED WITH MAKING THESE DECISIONS WHETHER TO PROSECUTE OR NOT TO PROSECUTE. NEIL: WHY DID HE DO IT THAT WAY? THAT IS A DUMB QUESTION BUT MUELLER HAD TO KNOW THE WHOLE WORLD WAS WATCHING FOR SOME SORT OF A DEFINITIVE STATEMENT HERE AND HE DIDN’T PROVIDE IT. LEAVING I HAD OPEN-ENDED, TO YOUR POINT, HE WOULD LEAVE IT IN CONGRESS’ HANDS TO SEE WHAT THEY DO, TO ME IT SOUNDS LIKE TURNING FROM YOUR DUTY HERE?>>WELL, HERE’S THE THING. I THINK THERE ARE TWO THINGS THAT WERE ANIMATING BOB MUELLER. I THINK NUMBER ONE WAS THE POINT YOU CAN’T INDICT A SITTING PRESIDENT UNDER LONGSTANDING JUSTICE DEPARTMENT GUIDANCE. THAT IS THE — NEIL: IS THAT TRUE.>>ABSOLUTELY. IT GOES BACK DECADES. WELL-SETTLED DOJ GUIDANCE, DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE RESPECTS THAT DECISION. THAT WAS A PIECE OF IT. I SUSPECT THERE WAS ALSO A PIECE WHETHER BOB MUELLER HIMSELF THOUGHT THE EVIDENCE WOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO PROVE OBSTRUCTION OR NOT. HERE I THINK IT’S A LITTLE AMBIGUOUS. HE CERTAINLY NEVER CAME OUT AND SAID BUT FOR THAT OPINION I WOULD HAVE CHARGED OBSTRUCTION. ON THE OTHER HAND HE WOULD HAVE THAT SENTENCE, IF WE COULD HAVE EXONERATED THE PRESIDENT WE WOULD HAVE. THAT IS UNUSUAL SENTENCE FOR SOMEONE LIKE BOB MUELLER TO PUT IN THE REPORT. I SUSPECT WE’LL LEARN MORE WHY HE INCLUDED THAT SENTENCE IN THE REPORT IF AND WHEN BOB MUELLER TESTIFIES BEFORE CONGRESS. NEIL: YOU’RE A VERY GOOD LAWYER AS WELL. DO YOU SEE HAVING READ THE REPORT YOURSELF, GETTING A SENSE THESE INSTANCES THAT DEMOCRATS WERE SEIZING ON TODAY THE PRESIDENT ADVISING HIS COUNSEL TO GO AHEAD AND TRY TO GET MUELLER FIRED. THE PRESIDENT DENIES THAT BY THE WAY. THAT SUCH ACTIONS, THERE WERE SEVERAL OTHERS, ARE ACTS OF OBSTRUCTION?>>YEAH. I GUESS MY TAKE ON THAT, NEIL IS SEVERAL POINTS. NUMBER ONE, I DID NOT LIKE A LOT OF WHAT I READ IN THE REPORT. I WAS DISAPPOINTED TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON BEHIND THE SCENES. AT THE SAME TIME — NEIL: WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YOU DIDN’T LIKE THE PRESIDENT’S BEHAVIOR?>>RIGHT, RIGHT. I DIDN’T LIKE SEEING WHAT HE WAS DOING BEHIND THE SCENES. AT THE SAME TIME I RESPECT THE DECISION OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TO LOOK AT IT AND MAKE THE DETERMINATION WHETHER THERE WAS SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE IN CRIMINAL MOTIVE WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS DOING. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL LOOKED AT THAT HE REACHED A CONCLUSION THERE WASN’T SUFFICIENT MOTIVE. REGARDLESS WHETHER YOU THINK THE CONDUCT, WHETHER THE PRESIDENT SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE IT, BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT THERE WAS CRIMINAL ACTIVITY HERE THAT IS WHAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ULTIMATELY CONCLUDED. NEIL: I READ THE REPORT WITH NOT NEARLY EXPERTISE YOU HAVE, I READ THE INITIAL CONCLUSIONS AND BULLET POINTS BARR MADE, I DON’T THINK HE WAS OFF ON THOSE BULLETS POINTS THAT WAS MY READ OF IT. I HAVE NO AXE TO GRIND WITH EITHER SIDE HERE. YOUR THOUGHTS.>>I THINK BARR GAVE AN ACCURATE SUMMARY OF WHAT BOB MUELLER FOUND. TO BE SURE HE COULD HAVE WRITTEN 20 PAGE DOCUMENT BUT HE DIDN’T HAVE THE TIME TO DO THAT, RIGHT? HE HAD TO GET THAT OUT FAST. NEIL: DAMNED IF HE DID, DAMNED IF HE DIDN’T, RIGHT?>>BARR BASICALLY WANTED TO GET MUELLER’S BOTTOM LINE CONCLUSION IN THE HANDS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AS SOON AS HE COULD. THAT IS WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO. THAT IS WHAT HE DID. COULD HE HAVE SAID MORE? HE DIDN’T HAVE TO BECAUSE HE KNEW THE REPORT WOULD BE COMING OUT IN MATTER OF DAYS.

Robert Ray: Trump is right, it’s ‘game over’


THING, NOW WHAT, WHAT HAPPENS? FORMER WHITEWATER INDEPENDENT COUNSEL ROBERT RAY ON ALL OF THAT. WHAT DO YOU THINK, ROBERT?>>NOT PRETTY MUCH. SEEMS TO VINDICATE WHAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID WOULD BE IN THE REPORT. YOU ARE NOT HEARING ANYTHING FROM DEMOCRATS NOW, WAIT A MINUTE, WE WANT TO SEE THE WHOLE REPORT. THEY’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO GET THE WHOLE REPORT WITH THE EXCEPTION OF 6-E MATERIAL EVERYBODY EXCEEDS CAN’T BE RELEASED UNLESS A COURT ORDER TO DO SO. DEMOCRATS WILL BE FORCED INTO POSITION GENERATING MOMENTUM TOWARD IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING IF THEY WANT TO SEE ANYMORE OF THE MUELLER REPORT WHICH I DON’T THINK THEY’RE PREPARED TO DO. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE PRESIDENT IS RIGHT, IT’S GAME OVER. IT’S OVER. OVER MEANS OVER. DOESN’T MEAN IT WILL CONTINUE ON. NEIL: HEARINGS WILL GO ON.>>THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT. THEY CAN TRY TO HAVE MUELLER AS A WITNESS OF THE AS PRESIDENT SAID THEY CAN SUBPOENA REST OF 13 ANGRY DEMOCRATS UNTIL THEY FILL OUT THE MUELLER STAFF UNTIL THEY FINE SOMEBODY THAT — NEIL: SEIZING ON NUANCES ON PART OF THE REPORT WHERE MUELLER AND HIS PEOPLE COULD NOT –>>PROSECUTORS DEAL IN NUANCES. IS THAT A NEWS FLASH? NEIL: RIGHT I HEAR BUT THEY WERE UNABLE TO SAY THAT NO CRIMINAL CONDUCT OCCURRED BUT AGAIN, HAD THEY HAD EVEN A SENSE OF THAT, THEY WOULD HAVE PUT IT IN THERE.>>I DEAL IN THE REAL WORLD. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU? THAT MEANS THAT THEY CAN’T EXCLUDE THE HYPOTHESIS THAT THE PRESIDENT MIGHT HAVE OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE, REALLY? I MEAN THE POINT IS, AS THE JUDGE I CLERKED FOR LONG AGO TOLD ME IT IS NOT ENOUGH THAT GOD KNOWS OKAY? PROSECUTORS DEAL IN EVIDENCE ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT EITHER THEY HAVE SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO BRING A CASE OR THEY DON’T. THIS IS THE DETERMINATION NOW AS THE RESULT OF THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION AND ATTORNEY GENERAL’S FINDINGS. WE NOW HAVE THE ANSWER. THE ANSWER IS, IT’S OVER WITH REGARD TO CRIMINAL CONDUCT INVOLVING PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. NEIL: SO –>>PERIOD. NEIL: OPEN-ENDED THING YOU HEAR FROM NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS SAYING YOU KNOW ON THIS OBSTRUCTION THING IT IS NOT A SLAM-DUNK. THEY WILL KEEP PURSUING THAT. ALMOST INVITE OF MUELLER IN THE REPORT TO SAY THAT IS UP TO CONGRESS TO GO BEYOND THIS. IS IT?>>NO ONE IS TRYING TO CARVE THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AWAY FROM ITS CONSTITUTIONAL PREROGATIVE. THEY HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE, WHETHER THEY WILL BEAT A DEAD HORSE OR NOT. WE NOW HAVE DESPITE WHAT SENATE MINORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER SAYS, WE NOW HAVE THE BENEFIT OF THE REPORT AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL DECIDE. BUT, PRELIMINARY INDICATIONS, INITIAL REVIEW OF THE REPORT SUGGESTS QUITE CLEARLY THEY WERE EXHAUSTIVE IN THEIR INVESTIGATION. THEY LOOKED AT THE PRESIDENT’S CONDUCT. THEY MADE AN EVALUATION OF HIS INTENT. THEY DID SO IN CONTEXT. NOW BOTH BOB MUELLER AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL HAVE SPOKEN. AND AS FAR AS THAT IS CONCERNED THAT IS OVER. WHAT HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DECIDES TO DO IN THEIR INFINITE WISDOM, HAVE AT IT BUT — NEIL: YOU CAN’T, BASE YOUR REPORT ON CONJECTURE, WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN CERTAIN THINGS HAPPENED. ONE THING GOT A LOT OF ATTENTION WITHIN THE REPORT, I WANT TO MAKE SURE I’M QUOTING ACCURATELY HERE IS THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS VERY, VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW FAR THIS PROBE WAS GOING IN THE EARLY DAYS, GOING BACK TO JUNE OF 2017, WHEN HE DIRECTED THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL DON MCGAHN CALL ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL TO SAY BOB MUELLER SHOULD BE OUSTED BECAUSE HE HAD CONFLICTS INTEREST. MCGAHN DECIDED HE WOULD RATHER RESIGN THAN WHAT WOULD BE ANOTHER “SATURDAY NIGHT MASSACRE” AND AND ATTORNEY GENERAL FINISHED HIS REPORT.>>THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID NO ACT WAS TAKEN. IN COSMIC WORLD WHAT MIGHT BE OBSTRUCTIVE CONDUCT THE PRESIDENT MIGHT HAVE HAVE INTENDED IT IF HE DIDN’T CARRY IT OUT. NEIL: THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING? NO. MIGHT IT HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED? A LOT OF THINGS ARE CONSIDERED.>>WOULD WE EXPECTPY IN THE DEPEND ON ADVISE OF HIS LAWYERS, PERSONAL COUNSEL, DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. NEIL: THIS WHOLE THING WITH THE SPECIAL COUNSEL AND ALL THAT –>>GIVEN HIS CONDUCT IS COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDABLE. NEIL: YOU DEALT WITH THAT WITH BILL CLINTON.>>ABSOLUTELY. NEIL: THEY DON’T LIKE GUYS LIKE YOU BREATHING UP THEIR YOU KNOW WHAT, THEY ARE FRUSTRATED.>>I GO BACK TO WHAT JIM COMEY SAID EARLY ON IN THE ADMINISTRATION. THE FBI SNUCK PEOPLE INTO THE WHITE HOUSE TO INTERVIEW MICHAEL FLYNN. IF I WOULD HAVE FOUND OUT ABOUT THAT AND I WAS PRESIDENT I WOULD BE NONE TOO PLEASED. IF I WAS ANGERED BY THAT, TAKE ACTION TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING THAT CONSTITUTES OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? REALLY? THAT IS STANDARD OF OBSTRUCTION CONDUCT? I DON’T THINK SO. I THINK THAT IS PRACTICAL, REASONABLE ANALYSIS OF THE FACTS AND THE LAW AND — NEIL: WHAT HAPPENS NOW? A LOT OF DEMOCRATS SAY WE WANT TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THAT. WANT PEOPLE COME UP TO THE HILL.>>I GUESS WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN THERE IS GOING TO BE, THERE IS GOING TO BE, THAT’S RIGHT WORD. THERE IS GOING TO BE TEAM TO RELITIGATE. THE QUESTION WHETHER AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL STAND FOR THIS. NEIL: WILL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE STAND FOR WHAT A LOT OF REPUBLICANS WANT TO SEE, GO BACK AND HOW THE INVESTIGATION STARTED OR EVERYONE SEES IT?>>YOUR LATTER POINT HAS TO BE CAREFULLY DONE. I’M NOT SUGGESTING OR CALLING AS SOME HAVE FOR SEPARATE SPECIAL COUNSEL TELEVISION INTO GET INTO BUT I DO THINK IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AFTER ISSUANCE OF IG MICHAEL HOROWITZ’S REPORT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT, TO FIND OUT THE ORIGINS WHAT BECAME THE RUSSIA COLLUSION INVESTIGATION. I’M NOT SAYING WE BELABOR THE ISSUE. I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT, MOSTLY FROM THE STANDPOINT OF WHAT JUST THE PRESIDENT SAID, UNDERSTANDING HOW THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OR ANY PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AND IF THINGS NEED TO BE LOOKED AT, THEY SHOULD BE LOOKED AT. NEIL: I’M SURPRISED HOW LITTLE WAS REDACTED IN THE END.>>WELL THERE YOU GO. MOUNTAIN OUT OF A MOLEHILL, RIGHT? SO AT THE END OF THE DAY CONGRESS IS GOING TO SEE EVERYTHING. NEIL: THAT BARR, WHATEVER YOU MAKE OF HIM, WISDOM HAVING A PRESS CONFERENCE BEFOREHAND, HOW HE CHARACTERIZED THIS REPORT, I HAVEN’T READ THE WHOLE THING SEEMS TO BE IN LINE WITH THE REPORT’S FINDINGS.>>THAT IS THE JUDGMENT THE PUBLIC IS GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE. I’M ENTIRELY THE CONFIDENT THAT THE PUBLIC WILL COME TO REASONABLE CONCLUSION IT WAS AN ACCURATE RESCITATION, VALUATION OF THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION AND AND ATTORNEY GENERAL DID IN FACT WHAT HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO DO. WHICH IS TO BE AS TRANSPARENT AS HE COULD BE, CONSISTENT, CONSISTENT WITH THE LAW. NEIL: HIS DUTIES.>>NOBODY SAID THIS WAS GOING TO BE AN EASY JOB BUT HE IS ATTEMPTING TO DO IT. AND YOU KNOW, ALL THIS OTHER NONSENSE THAT YOU’VE HEARD ABOUT, OH, THE REAL COLLUSION HERE IS THE COLLUSION BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND HIS HAND-PICKED ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR. SEEMS LIKE WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS DOING HIS JOB. NEIL: EVERYTHING IS GOING BY HOW THIS SHOULD BE DONE. YOU CAN ARGUE WHETHER HE SHOULD DO THE PRESSER, A LOT OF PEOPLE SAID HE WAS DOING PRESIDENT’S BIDDING, CHARACTERIZATION SOURCE OF ALL ANGER FROM THE LEFT SEEMS UNJUSTIFIED.>>I WANTED TO UNDERSTAND MYSELF PERSONALLY THE CONTEXT UNDER WHICH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL MADE THE DECISION ABOUT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. I THINK THAT A QUESTION SEPARATE FROM THE TEXT OF THE REPORT. I THINK THAT’S IMPORTANT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO KNOW AND I BELIEVE THAT EXPLAINS WHY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAME FORWARD FIRST BEFORE THE REPORT WAS ISSUED TO EXPLAIN TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHY HE MADE THAT DETERMINATION. THEN THAT — NEIL: WHETHER IT CONFLICTED WITH MUELLER’S EXPLANATION?>>CORRECT. NEIL: SO FAR APPEARS NOT TO BE BUT WE DON’T KNOW.>>IN CERTAIN INSTANCES ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID THIS MORNING ON LAW AND THE FACTS HE HAD A DIFFERENT VIEW, HE AND DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL THAN MUELLER WITH REGARD — NEIL: ROD ROSENSTEIN ALSO HAD A DIFFERENT VIEW OF THIS.>>RIGHT. AFTER THEY CONSULTED WITH THE OFFICE OF LEGAL COUNSEL. ISN’T THAT WHAT, ISN’T THAT WHAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS SUPPOSED TO DO? YES. NEIL: YOU LAWYERS CAN NEVER AGREE ON ANYTHING. YOU WOULD ARGUE ON HAM SANDWICH.>>WE CAN AGREE ON THE BOTTOM LINE. ULTIMATELY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S DETERMINATION AS A MATTER OF FACT, LAW, ULTIMATELY POLICY TO RESOLVE THE END OF THE INVESTIGATION AS FAR AS THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS CONCERNED. WHAT THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES DECIDE TO DO, THAT IS NOW UP TO THEM. THEY WILL BE EVALUATED ON THAT CONDUCT JUST AS MUCH AS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL EVALUATED ON HOW HE CONCLUDED THIS INVESTIGATION. NEIL: WHICH IS MAYBE WHY, SORRY, NANCY PELOSI A COUPLE DAYS AGO WAS SAYING WE SHOULD BE STICKING DEMOCRATS TO THE KITCHEN TABLE ISSUES. ALL THE SAME WHEN IT COMES TO THIS STUFF, MOVE ON.>>IF THEY DON’T MOVE ON THE PUBLIC IS GOING TO PERCEIVE THIS

Barr declines to testify before Dem-led House panel


JAMIE: THANK YOU TRISH. SORRY DEMOCRAT YOU BLEW IT. THE PARTISAN NONSENSE ABOUT THE MUELLER REPORT IS JUST NOT WORKING. ATTORNEY HILLIARD ENTERED WILLIAM BARR HAS DECIDED TO SKIP AND CAN YOU BLAME HIM. WILL DEMOCRATS SUBPOENA THE NATION’S TOP FORMAT QUESTION WHAT I THINK THEY WILL. THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE THEY CLAIM TO WANT ANSWERS AS TO WHY BARR CHOSE NOT TO CHARGE THE PRESIDENT WITH OBSTRUCTION AND THE AG ASK AND THEN ANSWER THE QUESTION MANY OF US HAVE BEEN WONDERING. WATCH.>>HOW DO WE GET TO THE POINT WHERE THE EVIDENCE IS NOW THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS FALSELY ACCUSED OF COLLUDING WITH THE RUSSIANS AND ACCUSED OF BEING TREASON OF A RUSSIAN AGENT IN THE EVIDENCE NOW IS THAT WAS WITHOUT A BASIS IN TWO YEARS OF THIS MINISTRATION HAVE BEEN DOMINATED BY THE ALLEGATIONS THAT HAVE NOW BEEN PROVEN FALSE. AND, TO LISTEN TO SOME OF THE RHETORIC YOU WOULD THINK THAT THE MUELLER REPORT HAD DONE THE OPPOSITE. JAMIE: DEMOCRATS RESPONDED WITH A BUNCH OF PREDICTABLE GRANDSTANDING AS THEY ALWAYS DO DURING THESE THINGS. LET’S START WITH MAZIE HIRONO. MAISIE, GIRL.>>MR. BAR, THE MAKER PEOPLE KNOW WHO YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT, FROM RUDY GIULIANI AND THE PEOPLE WHO SACRIFICE, THE REPUTATION IN THE OFFICE.>>SHE CALLED THE PRESIDENT A GRIFTER IN THE LYRE. AND OVER TO SMEAR THE AG AND THEN MINNESOTA SENATOR WHO BROUGHT UP MICHAEL COHEN FOR SOME REASON. AND THEN GOT SHUT DOWN.>>THE REPORT FOUND THAT MICHAEL COHEN’S TESTIMONY TO THE HOUSE THAT THE PRESIDENT REPEATEDLY IMPLIED THE COHEN FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE COMMITTED CRIMES. DO YOU CONSIDER THAT EVIDENCE TO BE AN ATTEMPT TO CONVINCE A WITNESS TO CHANGE TESTIMONY QUESTIONING.>>NO. I DON’T THINK THAT COULD PASS MUSTER. THOSE PUBLIC STATEMENTS HE WAS MAKING. JAMIE: HE DID HAVE SENATORS IN HIS CORNER ALSO PREDICTABLY INCLUDING SOUTH CAROLINA JUDICIARY CHAIRMAN LINDSEY GRAHAM.>>DO YOU EXPECT TO CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT THE BOTTOM-LINE CONCLUSIONS OF THE MUELLER REPORT?>>NO.>>DO YOU KNOW BUMBLER QUESTIONING.>>DO YOU TRUST HIM.>>YES.>>THIRTY YEARS ROUGHLY.>>TO THINKING OF THE TIME HE NEEDED?>>YES.>>DO THINK HE HAD THE MONEY.>>YES.>>TOGETHER RESOURCES?>>YES.>>DO YOU THINK HE DID A THOROUGH JOB QUESTIONING.>>YES. JAMIE: DID THE ATTORNEY GENERAL MAKE HIS CASE AND IS HE RIGHT TO SKIP MARS TESTIMONY ? JOINING ME TONIGHT AMERICAN FIRST ACTION-PACKED SENIOR ADVISOR JOHN SPICER IS BACK.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. JAMIE: KAMALA HARRIS GAVE HIM A TOUGH TIME AND HE DID STUMBLE THERE. I THOUGHT IT WAS ODD WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT THE MUELLER REPORT BEING HIS BABY. WAS THERE ANYTHING HERE THAT WAS PROBLEMATIC FOR YOU?>>NO, NOT REALLY. I THINK HE WAS CALM, COOL AND COLLECTED. HE REALLY WALKED THROUGH THE LEGAL REACTION TO THIS IF YOU WILL. HE BROKE DOWN IN EACH QUESTION WHY THE RHETORIC DIDN’T MAKE SENSE FROM A LEGAL BASIS. THAT IS WHAT THIS WAS. WE LOST PERSPECTIVE AS TO WHAT THIS WAS ABOUT. ESPECIAL COUNSEL WAS APPOINTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE TO LOOK INTO THIS MATTER. THAT SPECIAL COUNSEL REPORT TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL DURING THE TENURE TO DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL, BUT THIS REPORT WAS INTENDED FOR THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WHEN A BIG STEP FURTHER BY RELEASING IT TO CONGRESS IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WHAT HE DID TODAY WAS EXPLAINED THE PROCESS, EXPLAIN THE CONCLUSION IN A THINK THE OTHER THING THAT IS INTERESTING AND YOU ALLUDED TO THIS, WE HAVE LOST FOCUS IN NUMBER OF THE DEMOCRATS WERE CONTESTED THE UNDERLYING FACTS. TO HEAR THE DEMOCRATS — THEY KEPT SAYING COLLISION IS NOT EVEN A LEGAL TERM, WHERE WE TALK ABOUT IT. I KEPT SAYING, I HEARD THAT FOR ABOUT SEVEN MONTHS NONSTOP AND NOW SUDDENLY THE DEMOCRATS HAVE PIVOTED TO ITS NEVER BEEN ABOUT COLLUSION. I THINK THEY HAVE LOST FOCUS ON WHAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY FIGHTING FOR NOT TALKING ABOUT A PROCESS. WHY DID YOU WRITE A FOUR PAGE MEMO THE WAY YOU DID, WERE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT THIS REACTION. JAMIE: LET ME ASK ABOUT THAT. THERE WERE A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT SUMMARY. I GUESS REALLY IS A SUMMARY DEPENDING ON WHO YOU ASK. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID, THIS IS SUCH A PRESSING MATTER BECAUSE OF THE PUBLIC INTEREST IN THE CASE INTO THE AMOUNT OF TIME THAT HAS GONE ON IN THE FACT THAT IT ENTERED AROUND THE PRESIDENT AND TOOK SO MUCH ENERGY FROM HIS ADMINISTRATION, THEREFORE HE FELT OBLIGATED TO PUT SOMETHING OUT, IN HINDSIGHT, HE SHOULDN’T HAVE RELEASED THAT FOUR-PAGE DOCUMENT TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS INTO THE PUBLIC?>>I THINK YOU DID THE RIGHT THING. HE MADE IT VERY CLEAR THAT THEY EXPECTED TO GET A REDACTED VERSION FROM THE SPECIAL COUNSEL THAT THEY WOULD’VE BEEN ABLE TO TURN AROUND MUCH QUICKER. THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. SO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID TODAY, MUCH LIKE YOU WOULD RELEASE A VERDICT SUMMARY RIGHT AFTER TRIAL AND THEN THE TRANSCRIPT OF THAT TRIAL COMES OUT LATER. HE WAS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN CONGRESS UNDERSTOOD THE BOTTOM LINE. AGAIN, GETTING BACK TO WHAT I SAID A MOMENT AGO, THE BOTTOM LINE WAS WAS IN COLLUSION WITH THE RUSSIANS OR ANY OTHER ENTITY THAT SOUGHT TO UNDERMINE THE INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTION. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SUMMARY, WHATEVER WE’RE CALLING IT NOW. CAME OUT AND MADE IT CLEAR THAT NO THERE WASN’T. THAT WAS WHAT THE MAIN THRUST OF THE COUNCIL INVESTIGATION WAS ABOUT. HE IS A FURTHER POINT, THIS IS WHY THIS IS A SILLY CONVERSATION THAT THE DEMOCRATS WERE HAVING TODAY. WITHIN DAYS AFTER THE SUMMARY, THE ENTIRE 400 PLUS PAGE REPORT CAME OUT. MEANING IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE SUMMARY, NOW YOU HAVE IT OUT THERE IN A SEARCHABLE WAY THE YOU CAN LOOK UP, READ IT YOURSELF. JAMIE: I THINK THEIR ISSUE IS WITH SPECIAL COUNSEL AND ROBERT MUELLER’S OFFICE IN THE INVESTIGATION. AND CLEARLY THE ISSUE THAT THEY HAVE THEIR WAS THAT THE PRESIDENT WASN’T CHARGED WITH ANYTHING AND THEY ARE MAKING THE CASE THAT THE OFFICE OF LEGAL COUNSEL — BASICALLY INFORMED HER THAT THEY CANNOT CHARGE A SITTING PRESIDENT AND IF THAT IS REALLY THE CASE IN MUELLER WAS SO INVESTED IN THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT HAD BROKEN THE LAW, AND HE COULD APPROACH THE ISSUE BY CHARGING HIM AND FORCING IT THROUGH THE COURT SYSTEM SO WE COULD FINALLY HAVE A DEFINITIVE LEGAL ANSWER ON THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION. IF THE PRESIDENT IS SO POWERFUL THAT HE CANNOT BE CHARGED AND HE CAN ESSENTIALLY FIRE ANYONE THEN THAT IS A PROBLEM THAT’S ABOVE THE PAYGRADE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IN THE PRESIDENCY.>>THE OTHER THING, THE SPECIAL COUNSEL COULD HAVE DECIDED, HE COULD’VE SAID, I DON’T BELIEVE THE PRESIDENT COULD BE CHARGED, I DO BELIEVE IT’S IN VIOLATION OF ONE OF THE TEN INCIDENCES I’D LIKE THAT. HE DID NOT DO THAT. JAMIE: HE COULD’VE GIVEN A CLEAR BOTTOM LINE BUT INSTEAD, I THINK INTENTIONALLY HE CREATED THIS THAT’S OPEN FOR INTERPRETATION BY BOTH SIDES TO BENEFIT EACH SIDE POLITICALLY. AND I THINK IN A SENSE GIVEN THE AMOUNT OF TIME, AND RESOURCES IN THE MONEY, ISAAC IS COWARDLY.>>BUT HERE IS THE OTHER THING, THE DEMOCRATS FOR ALL OF THEIR STOCK AND MUELLER. HE SAID THIS MAN IS ABOVE APPROACH, HIGHEST INTEGRITY — GRAY, FINE. MY POINT, WHEN HE DIDN’T REACH THE CONCLUSION THAT THEY ASSUMED THAT HE WOULD, NOW THEY HAVE A PROBLEM. BUT MUELLER IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM COULD’VE DONE THIS. THINK OF THIS, EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT THIS REPORT IN ITS HANDLING IN THE WAY IT’S BEEN HANDLED OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS HAS LEAKED OUT IN SOME WAY SHAPE OR FORM. INCLUDING THE LETTER, DISSATISFACTION. JAMIE: SPECIAL COUNCILS THAT WAS NOT LEAKED OUT AND BOTH SIDES WERE SURPRISED THAT ROBERT MUELLER WAS RUNNING THAT KIND OF SHIFT. –>>MY POINT IS THIS IS TO SAY THAT IF THERE WAS SOME OFFENSE AMONG THE TEAM THAT THE PRESIDENT HAD VIOLATED THE LAW AND ANY WAY IN TERMS OF ABSTRACTION. THAT WOULD BE GETTING OUT. HIS TEAM WOULD MAKE SURE THAT THAT GOT OUT AND IT HAPPENED. THAT IS BECAUSE EVERYBODY PUT STOCK IN THE FACT THAT THERE WAS THIS UNDERLYING COLLUSION OR ILLEGALITY OF SOME SORT. JAMIE: WE ARE HAVE THESE TERMS THAT ARE MEANINGLESS, CONSPIRACY, EXONERATION, THINGS THAT REALLY DON’T MEAN ANYTHING
