  • 1:28
    the heroes let's switch back okay let's
  • 1:31
    do a box in the corner all right and he
  • 1:32
    slipped back over there because a
  • 1:34
    celebrity coming back to McCain and then
  • 1:37
    they're waiting for the McCain's coffin
  • 1:39
    to come out of the plane and there was
  • 1:40
    some malfunction and the the lift
  • 1:44
    elevator didn't work and so now we have
  • 1:47
    no Aretha Franklin celebrities and we're
  • 1:49
    looking at like a skybox up against the
  • 1:52
    plane on a scissor lift for ten minutes
  • 1:55
    if you want to cut away is like the
  • 1:59
    caskets coming down we can't cut away
  • 2:00
    all right did and no commercial breaks
  • 2:03
    whatsoever it was beautiful
  • 2:06
    it was just it they they couldn't yeah
  • 2:08
    it wasn't even the funeral was just the
  • 2:10
    you know just hanging out for a little
  • 2:12
    bit we're looking at the coffin
  • 2:14
    it was a whole day before the before
  • 2:17
    anyone was gonna say anything and they
  • 2:19
    had hyped him up so much as one of the
  • 2:22
    only 31 Americans to ever ever ever get
  • 2:26
    this kind of treatment that they could
  • 2:28
    not go back to the true moneymaker which
  • 2:30
    was obviously a wreath is funeral yeah
  • 2:33
    and again the ariana grande breast rub I
  • 2:38
    have some clips I got some clips for you
  • 2:42
    yeah good yeah you don't well let's
  • 2:48
    start with a little recap then as Martha
  • 2:52
    McCallum really get to play something
  • 2:55
    stupid from Fox because either so stupid
  • 2:59
    or maybe it's true but Martha had a
  • 3:02
    gaggle of women and they were and they
  • 3:04
    were on a remote shoot I'm like I know
  • 3:06
    if they were in Detroit but they were
  • 3:08
    outside and as a part of her Cannell
  • 3:12
    sitting out there in the elements we had
  • 3:14
    Marie harf who was you know she's she's
  • 3:17
    a she's now Fox commentator remember
  • 3:21
    Marie yeah I remember when they brought
  • 3:23
    her over and I've never seen her on Fox
  • 3:25
    she's been on a couple of times well the
  • 3:27
    reason you probably see is because
  • 3:29
    neither you or I ever watched Sean
  • 3:31
    Hannity show I'm sure minute I see that
  • 3:34
    head come on I'm like now he doesn't
  • 3:39
    have the giant head box like on CNN but
  • 3:42
    anyway so they they discussed in an odd
  • 3:46
    way very anti hashtag me too because
  • 3:48
    that did come up as well but there was
  • 3:50
    also a guest that was kind of difficult
  • 3:53
    for the media the guests ranging from
  • 3:55
    world leaders to musical legends and one
  • 3:58
    especially controversial figure who was
  • 4:00
    seated in the front row
  • 4:01
    many people kind of wondering what the
  • 4:03
    unapologetic anti-semite Louis Farrakhan
  • 4:06
    was doing up there I am joined by Kelly
  • 4:09
    grace Torrance Marie harf and Kylie
  • 4:11
    Patterson it was really such a that
  • 4:13
    moving it was really such a that
  • 4:15
    Hudson was amazing and Gladys Knight was
  • 4:18
    amazing but I did keep the comment on it
  • 4:21
    pretty much the way they do about the
  • 4:23
    Oscars the Grammys or any other award
  • 4:26
    show just all the performances were
  • 4:28
    amazing just the performances were
  • 4:30
    amazing by louis farrakhan who was in
  • 4:32
    every single shot i'm thinking what is
  • 4:35
    what was he doing there who won no wants
  • 4:37
    to start there well you know since when
  • 4:39
    you saw him because you know I looked at
  • 4:41
    some of the coverage of this and a lot
  • 4:43
    of outlets variety ABC MSNBC had
  • 4:45
    pictures published on the website
  • 4:46
    cutting him off so they sewed the front
  • 4:49
    row with President Clinton that's your
  • 4:51
    your press freedom right there everybody
  • 4:58
    we can't explain it we don't know what's
  • 5:01
    going on just come on Jackson al
  • 5:04
    Sharpton and they cut Farrakhan off and
  • 5:06
    I you know I thought that was very
  • 5:07
    telling that they did that clearly they
  • 5:10
    thought wow why is this guy there to
  • 5:12
    there they had the same questions we all
  • 5:14
    know what why why was he he's one of a
  • 5:16
    guest of honor it's right near Bill
  • 5:18
    Clinton is something that's supposed to
  • 5:20
    be about Aretha Franklin b-team I
  • 5:21
    thought in many ways about some of these
  • 5:23
    gentlemen who were right behind we
  • 5:26
    forget that she was really at the head
  • 5:28
    of the liberation movement for years I
  • 5:30
    mean she respecting the liberation but
  • 5:34
    does she mean the the women's liberation
  • 5:36
    movement good news to me well she was
  • 5:43
    just about to explain that that's what
  • 5:44
    the song was about you forget that she
  • 5:46
    was really at the head of the liberation
  • 5:48
    movement for years I mean she respect
  • 5:50
    natural woman that was a part of the
  • 5:52
    movement he was there because he's a
  • 6:02
    feminist part of the women's liberation
  • 6:03
    movement and or does she mean the
  • 6:07
    [Music] and or does she mean the
  • 6:09
    history this is her funeral I mean it's
  • 6:15
    her choice so she wants their who she
  • 6:16
    wants no no she didn't leave a will but
  • 6:21
    she knew exactly what she wanted there
  • 6:23
    al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and Louis
  • 6:27
    Farrakhan to be up there I think she
  • 6:29
    wanted them at her funeral yes there was
  • 6:31
    also this moment with Ariana Grande
  • 6:33
    she's dancing and then you know these
  • 6:35
    guys are like staring at her from the
  • 6:37
    back now
  • 6:39
    you know they're gonna make light of
  • 6:41
    this situation and I had a conversation
  • 6:45
    with the keeper about it cuz I I saw
  • 6:48
    like no you just just holding on to her
  • 6:51
    but I guess it was too long or if you
  • 6:53
    grab you know hold me here and you'll
  • 6:55
    know that you're touching my breasts I'm
  • 6:56
    like maybe I don't know but regardless
  • 7:00
    it grabbed his hand and Pyke it up I
  • 7:02
    don't think so know why but only
  • 7:07
    speaking when you grab a woman just up
  • 7:08
    you know is you just kind of snuggle
  • 7:11
    with her on the stage for some unknown
  • 7:12
    reason but if you feel like you're gonna
  • 7:13
    do that usually grab by the waist don't
  • 7:15
    you to grab the waist because this with
  • 7:17
    the easiest but I don't know if he mean
  • 7:22
    it's hard to tell short she's four foot
  • 7:25
    nine so that he puts his arm around her
  • 7:27
    you know been and and grabbed an out I
  • 7:30
    didn't I couldn't find the clip anymore
  • 7:32
    of course but grab the shoulder that's a
  • 7:35
    very comfortable thing to do
  • 7:36
    that'sthat's that would have been more
  • 7:38
    appropriate I think but yeah the
  • 7:39
    shoulder yeah but you know he did some
  • 7:42
    where apologize by say if I if I crossed
  • 7:45
    some some some border there or something
  • 7:48
    I guess he did when I searched for
  • 7:51
    caught we're calling her a Taco Bell
  • 7:54
    special here we go he's dancing and then
  • 7:56
    you know these guys are like Syrian her
  • 7:59
    from the back and of course that was all
  • 8:01
    over ladies guys
  • 8:03
    see now it's funny you know now when you
  • 8:06
    have Bill Clinton who actually you know
  • 8:09
    assaulted some women I think is isn't
  • 8:12
    that historical record at this point or
  • 8:14
    raped a couple why I don't want to go
  • 8:17
    that far but now they're just laughing
  • 8:19
    at the guy you know to me he just looked
  • 8:22
    like regular old bill or goofy you know
  • 8:25
    just a mess
  • 8:27
    because that's what he's looked like
  • 8:29
    ever since he ran for president again he
  • 8:31
    just doesn't look very healthy you
  • 8:34
    sitting there but they're not that
  • 8:36
    laughing about it I don't understand
  • 8:38
    that you're confusing this white man if
  • 8:45
    I were ariana grande I would have worn
  • 8:48
    something longer and now it's the
  • 8:52
    woman's fault because she should have
  • 8:54
    worn something more I don't understand
  • 9:02
    it's like a bad version of American Idol
  • 9:04
    that is not appropriate to wear to a
  • 9:07
    funeral even a wreath of Franklin's we
  • 9:08
    know she could have gotten something a
  • 9:09
    little longer with some sequins like I
  • 9:12
    just longer with some sequins like I
  • 9:13
    and that's Marie harf former spokes hole
  • 9:16
    for the State Department
  • 9:18
    I should have sequins a little bit
  • 9:20
    longer slut-shaming her I'm so confused
  • 9:23
    she was wearing black it was fine
  • 9:26
    great it's not her fault that those guys
  • 9:28
    were leering at her they were all
  • 9:31
    leering it's just an awkward the Lance
  • 9:33
    Bass price there's a lot of million but
  • 9:36
    priceless there's a lot of memes online
  • 9:37
    right now about Bill Clinton and Jesse
  • 9:39
    Jackson talking and what they were
  • 9:41
    possibly saying in that moment we're
  • 9:42
    watching it was a great performance
  • 9:54
    we're beautiful but that was like a
  • 9:56
    comedy of errors what it's like a
  • 10:00
    henhouse these women
  • 10:05
    our ESP ICT then we had some of the
  • 10:10
    speeches themselves now missing from the
  • 10:13
    Aretha Franklin funeral because of
  • 10:16
    course he was in Washington DC preparing
  • 10:18
    well let's stop before he go there let's
  • 10:21
    get back to their original moaning and
  • 10:24
    groaning which was Farrakhan why was he
  • 10:26
    there which was Farrakhan why was he
  • 10:26
    did anybody in the media tell from the
  • 10:29
    answer right now
  • 10:30
    no not a single one no and simply ask
  • 10:34
    him say why are you here
  • 10:37
    now you good friends of Aretha with a
  • 10:39
    little interview a little one you know
  • 10:40
    he's a media whore he doesn't mind
  • 10:43
    talking to the media I did not see a
  • 10:44
    single interview and he quotes anything
  • 10:46
    they're just all a lot of speculation
  • 10:48
    nobody bothered to ask him I think it
  • 10:50
    would be a great question hmm maybe not
  • 10:52
    a great question but it would very good
  • 10:54
    question will be the one of interest yes
  • 10:57
    of course I wanted to know but no and no
  • 10:59
    no one asked it was just there was just
  • 11:01
    problematic so cut them off don't ask
  • 11:03
    questions just cut them off series your
  • 11:06
    press freedom that's what you do with
  • 11:07
    your press freedom you have the freedom
  • 11:09
    to decide not just well somebody out of
  • 11:11
    the Stalin used to do oh no so President
  • 11:18
    Obama was not there if I am not mistaken
  • 11:21
    didn't Aretha Franklin sing at his
  • 11:24
    inauguration Aretha Franklin sing at his
  • 11:28
    believe maybe yeah it's possible let me
  • 11:31
    just double-check that it has to be the
  • 11:33
    2008 inauguration the first one yeah
  • 11:35
    it's possible I I'm pretty sure let me
  • 11:40
    see yes Aretha Franklin performed
  • 11:48
    but now which was that the was that the
  • 11:50
    2008 I think it is yeah that was his
  • 11:52
    that was his yes as she performed right
  • 11:56
    after his inauguration at the on the
  • 11:58
    mall his inauguration at the on the
  • 12:00
    she did my country tis of thee so anyway
  • 12:04
    for what was an Obama there well for him
  • 12:07
    not to show up because he had to make a
  • 12:09
    choice with the dueling funerals now but
  • 12:13
    he had to be in in Washington he had to
  • 12:16
    be a part of you know the the lead in
  • 12:18
    and of course he was going to be one of
  • 12:20
    the featured speakers as John McCain had
  • 12:22
    requested and I it's hard for me to
  • 12:25
    believe that the ritha had said I want
  • 12:28
    Farrakhan there I want Al there I want I
  • 12:33
    can answer the question okay yeah that's
  • 12:36
    why it was seedy where he was sitting
  • 12:38
    Farrakhan a Black Muslim was right that
  • 12:47
    would have been Obama's spot on the
  • 12:49
    stage too yeah and I'm sure
  • 12:51
    Aretha would have wanted the president
  • 12:53
    the first African American president to
  • 12:55
    attend a call-up Farrakhan hey can you
  • 12:58
    fill it for me buddy bro Brooklyn for me
  • 13:04
    yeah explains that we've I think you
  • 13:07
    nailed it done this is all right well we
  • 13:11
    can just fit a thirteen minutes of show
  • 13:13
    goodnight everybody
  • 13:15
    so Obama didn't show up he sent a note
  • 13:19
    hey Dave you send a note
  • 13:21
    yeah you sent a video note no no not eat
  • 13:24
    not even an iPhone thing the Obama is so
  • 13:27
    political that's why he knows McCain's
  • 13:29
    record he knows again hated him yeah
  • 13:33
    yeah well we'll get to that in a minute
  • 13:35
    but Michael Eric Dyson
  • 13:39
    he had the speech of all dueling
  • 13:42
    funerals better than Obama's at met
  • 13:44
    McCain's the ceremony because he not
  • 13:48
    only but slammed President Obama he
  • 13:51
    added at least eighteen new terms to
  • 13:54
    Trump rotation so do you have your
  • 13:57

  • 17:52
    that's a funeral man that's great
  • 17:55
    very nice so on
  • 17:58
    oh this is this is the only piece she
  • 17:59
    needed it goes on for 18 minutes but
  • 18:02
    this was this was what you really wanted
  • 18:03
    to hear now the what's-his-name was his
  • 18:06
    approach sure was yeah yeah um you know
  • 18:09
    Michael Eric Dyson oh you know this guy
  • 18:11
    yeah you and you see him a guy that guy
  • 18:13
    bad guy so the the press was having kind
  • 18:16
    of this McCain gasm the wall you know
  • 18:21
    while because he got flown in from
  • 18:23
    Arizona on Air Force two and you know
  • 18:27
    it's just this this the the whole thing
  • 18:30
    they'd built him up to such a degree and
  • 18:32
    he got this and I don't even know how
  • 18:34
    that works but I mean how do you get
  • 18:37
    this type of ceremony it's just everyone
  • 18:39
    says shoot it's gonna be one of those
  • 18:40
    let's do it or is that really planned I
  • 18:43
    mean does anyone have to sign off on
  • 18:45
    this stuff who are we no Trump didn't
  • 18:48
    know we wouldn't think so so it with the
  • 18:52
    military I have no idea or the McCain
  • 18:54
    family I have no idea what Mimi thinks
  • 18:57
    this is was all done as a promotion for
  • 19:00
    one of the McCain girls or his wife to
  • 19:03
    run for got for a senator I'm sure that
  • 19:07
    she's going to she's at least going to
  • 19:09
    step in until the midterms wouldn't she
  • 19:11
    isn't that quite normal you know step in
  • 19:15
    has to be assigned by the governor yeah
  • 19:17
    the governor would say step in the
  • 19:19
    governor would have to assign her mm-hmm
  • 19:21
    the interim position he's not gonna do
  • 19:24
    it in guy's wife I mean what what kind
  • 19:26
    of a what kind of a screwball monarchy
  • 19:29
    are we living under no qualifications
  • 19:33
    we'll see we'll see what I really became
  • 19:35
    he had all the qualifications but
  • 19:37
    obviously this the whole thing although
  • 19:39
    to me it was obvious
  • 19:41
    all the bombast was purely political
  • 19:45
    just to be able to say oh yeah Trump
  • 19:48
    this guy is a hero that's how I felt I
  • 19:51
    agree with you this all is all about
  • 19:54
    Trump's snide remark that as far as he's
  • 19:56
    concerned heroes don't get captured and
  • 19:58
    where were all of the military people
  • 20:01
    lauding john mccain i didn't see one how
  • 20:04
    many how many military people went up
  • 20:06
    there and spoke madison and he had to go
  • 20:08
    be a part of it
  • 20:10
    I know that all the military guys I know
  • 20:12
    I wouldn't be part of that
  • 20:15
    so yeah it was pretty much as a Trump
  • 20:20
    slam it was yes he was very much a Trump
  • 20:23
    slam and I think John McCain would have
  • 20:25
    loved that I think the whole thing so
  • 20:28
    I'm torn but I'm kind of happy it's like
  • 20:31
    this is what you wanted that's what he
  • 20:33
    got is what you wanted that's what he
  • 20:33
    now again the press was just sauce is so
  • 20:36
    great and John but the press is all in
  • 20:42
    so I what is wrong with these people so
  • 20:44
    Alison cammarata has an interview with
  • 20:48
    John Sununu
  • 20:49
    and he used to be the was he the
  • 20:52
    Attorney General I think for under Bush
  • 20:54
    I don't know my beliefs I don't remember
  • 20:57
    he worked for Reagan a lot for a long
  • 20:58
    time I know that so so now I'm talking
  • 21:02
    about you know just talking about McCain
  • 21:05
    and what's going on and and all of a
  • 21:08
    sudden it turns very very very sour
  • 21:12
    here's the setup to this interview
  • 21:14
    joining us now to talk about the legacy
  • 21:15
    of John McCain is former New Hampshire
  • 21:17
    governor John Sununu he was chief of
  • 21:19
    staff to President George HW morning
  • 21:22
    governor HD morning Alison how are you
  • 21:24
    I'm well oh my gosh just remembering how
  • 21:27
    much oh my gosh
  • 21:29
    time John McCain invested in New
  • 21:32
    Hampshire and how much he loved politics
  • 21:35
    like how she's articulating the love for
  • 21:39
    John McCain Aaron then mixing it up and
  • 21:42
    the stump speeches you know jeff jacoby
  • 21:44
    and the Boston Globe this morning calls
  • 21:46
    him New Hampshire's third senator that's
  • 21:50
    very accurate you know if you're
  • 21:52
    involved in politics at all in New
  • 21:54
    Hampshire you certainly do get to know
  • 21:56
    at least on some level those who are
  • 21:59
    running for president and and John
  • 22:02
    McCain grew to embrace the style of
  • 22:06
    campaigning that works well in New
  • 22:08
    Hampshire okay so far so good and this
  • 22:10
    is you know the guys he's he's chill
  • 22:13
    he's been asked to come on talk about
  • 22:14
    John McCain he's perfectly happy to talk
  • 22:17
    about John McCain so governor what do
  • 22:20
    you think about President Trump
  • 22:23
    rejecting the practice of putting out an
  • 22:27
    official White House statement about
  • 22:29
    john mccain's service and sacrifice look
  • 22:32
    that was printed in the Washington Post
  • 22:34
    and I have to be honest with you I don't
  • 22:37
    give much credence to whatever we also
  • 22:38
    have that reporting yeah well same thing
  • 22:42
    applies house governor you come on CNN
  • 22:46
    this is governor governor I'm gonna talk
  • 22:49
    to you in my stern voice now governor
  • 22:51
    even though we invited you on governor
  • 22:53
    governor yeah well same thing applies
  • 22:57
    Ellis governor you come on CNN and we
  • 23:02
    appreciate you coming on CNN and we
  • 23:04
    appreciate your take on it but I don't
  • 23:06
    appreciate you denigrating our reporting
  • 23:09
    I think that you know we have excellent
  • 23:11
    reporters here but are you saying that
  • 23:13
    you don't want to believe that you don't
  • 23:15
    want to believe that President Trump
  • 23:17
    would do that about I'm saying that I
  • 23:19
    don't want to comment on a report that I
  • 23:22
    haven't satisfied myself is correct and
  • 23:24
    if that report were true I'm not going
  • 23:28
    to answer the - it's not hypothetical
  • 23:30
    this is our reporting it's not
  • 23:34
    hypothetical this is our reporting we
  • 23:35
    have excellent sources you come on CNN
  • 23:38
    and you dare question our sources the
  • 23:41
    sources who actually say that they were
  • 23:43
    lying those sources the backdrop of the
  • 23:47
    lanny davis source this is pretty funny
  • 23:50
    not gonna answer the - it's not
  • 23:52
    hypothetical this is our reporting we
  • 23:55
    have rock-solid sources talk about John
  • 24:00
    McCain I'm here to talk about John
  • 24:02
    McCain as I remember him I'm not here to
  • 24:05
    talk about the press's handling of a
  • 24:08
    difference between the White House and
  • 24:12
    the press corps at this time it's not
  • 24:14
    the presses handling its president
  • 24:16
    Trump's handling of John McCain's death
  • 24:18
    look John McCain was a great American
  • 24:23
    who deserves to be recognized as a great
  • 24:26
    American he is being recognized by his
  • 24:29
    colleagues and a friends that are his
  • 24:31
    friends around Melania Trump has
  • 24:34
    certainly put out an exceptionally
  • 24:35
    strong statement outlining the
  • 24:38
    appreciation for his service the White
  • 24:40
    House has recognized the
  • 24:42
    Saro of the family and and I think
  • 24:45
    Americans ought to be looking at the
  • 24:47
    positive side not trying to create a
  • 24:49
    division amongst people who are in in
  • 24:52
    joint sorrow mourning a great American
  • 24:56
    this is just should have seen her face
  • 24:58
    she just couldn't believe what she was
  • 25:00
    hearing that he would not comment on
  • 25:04
    their obviously rock-solid sources
  • 25:07
    rock-solid and to be clear the press
  • 25:10
    didn't create whatever division exists
  • 25:13
    president Trump feels that allowed him
  • 25:16
    to spike the statement that General John
  • 25:20
    Kelly wanted him to put out about John
  • 25:23
    McCain's sacrifice the press house
  • 25:25
    everybody everybody everybody reflects
  • 25:28
    their concerns in ways that are
  • 25:31
    consistent with whatever they feel I've
  • 25:33
    expressed my concern I've the loss of
  • 25:36
    John McCain who I think was a great
  • 25:38
    American a great American hero in the
  • 25:41
    military a great American hero in the
  • 25:43
    political process and frankly a great
  • 25:45
    American hero on a personal level the
  • 25:48
    people that knew him well you're not
  • 25:50
    alone governor so many people feel that
  • 25:54
    way many people what's her name cam
  • 26:00
    Allison camera rota when you see her you
  • 26:01
    you recognize her I mean she just seems
  • 26:05
    like a stiff possible okay and that's
  • 26:09
    why it is notable that the president
  • 26:12
    doesn't well I'm here to talk about my
  • 26:15
    friend John McCain you appear to be here
  • 26:17
    to talk about something that you think
  • 26:19
    you can exploit and I find that rather
  • 26:22
    unpleasant governor governor again again
  • 26:25
    we don't have to try to exploit
  • 26:28
    something this is a fact this is a
  • 26:30
    truism it's a truism when did when did
  • 26:35
    this word really get this kind of play
  • 26:37
    this truism you could say fact I got a
  • 26:41
    fact is okay or it's the truth but what
  • 26:43
    is this truism it's a truism did you
  • 26:47
    take that cookie Tommy no mommy and
  • 26:49
    that's a truism governor again we don't
  • 26:54
    have to try to explain something this is
  • 26:56
    a to try to explain something this is
  • 26:56
    fact this is a truism well why are you
  • 26:59
    dwell on it pretty much comment I have
  • 27:02
    given you my comments on it and I'm here
  • 27:05
    to talk about John McCain there and I
  • 27:08
    just reject your premise if this is
  • 27:11
    something the press has created it has
  • 27:13
    been customary probably since George
  • 27:15
    Washington on ER make you should make
  • 27:21
    your enquiries directly to the White
  • 27:23
    House if you want a direct answer
  • 27:25
    governor John Sununu we appreciate you
  • 27:28
    coming on and giving us your thoughts
  • 27:30
    about what John McCain meant to you and
  • 27:33
    to New Hampshire thank you very much the
  • 27:35
    great loss for the country and for the
  • 27:37
    world loss for the country and for the
  • 27:38
    indeed that guy's never coming on my
  • 27:39
    show again I'll never have that guy on
  • 27:41
    yeah I don't know why it would go on her
  • 27:43
    show she's not very pleasant she's got
  • 27:45
    our stilted style that's just
  • 27:47
    unprofessional nasty admit ah the worst
  • 27:52
    and then finally makes more money than
  • 27:54
    we do combined oh yeah oh yeah
  • 27:58
    and then finally Lindsey Graham did
  • 28:02
    everything wrong
  • 28:03
    just everything wrong the New York Times
  • 28:06
    even wrote a piece let me see if this is
  • 28:09
    must have been editorial let me just
  • 28:11
    open this up for a second
  • 28:12
    was this an editorial no this is by Dana
  • 28:15
    Millbank this an editorial no this is by Dana
  • 28:16
    so it's an opinion yes rest in peace
  • 28:20
    Lindsey Graham we lost to Mavericks
  • 28:24
    within a week on Saturday we lost the
  • 28:26
    legendary John McCain on Tuesday we lost
  • 28:30
    his loyal sidekick Senator Lindsey Oh
  • 28:32
    Grahame Oh Graham remains alive and well
  • 28:35
    but after serving for two decades is
  • 28:37
    Robin to McCain's Batman Graham buried
  • 28:40
    whatever remained of his own reputation
  • 28:42
    for a cano classroom even before his
  • 28:44
    partner's funeral because he had the
  • 28:47
    audacity to go tell people what he
  • 28:50
    thought and what Trump said about his
  • 28:53
    thoughts he's just he's not on board
  • 28:55
    senator people who know I cover you as a
  • 28:58
    journalist know I know you ask me more
  • 29:00
    than anything else the following
  • 29:02
    question how can Lindsey Graham be the
  • 29:05
    man and politician that John McCain was
  • 29:07
    and strived to be even more so and play
  • 29:11
    golf with Donald Trump be there for
  • 29:13
    Donald Trump and frankly sometimes carry
  • 29:16
    the water of Donald Trump carry the
  • 29:18
    water of Donald Trump which of course is
  • 29:20
    a truism and it's also carry the water
  • 29:24
    for Donald Trump I think she this is
  • 29:26
    Dana and by the way dana Bash from CNN
  • 29:29
    the other woman and milieu is creating a
  • 29:33
    certain style of voice yes oh yes this
  • 29:37
    comes from carrying water for Putin
  • 29:39
    which is a favorite of the cable news
  • 29:40
    networks oh yes water for Putin so now
  • 29:44
    it's water for Trump Trump you miss
  • 29:45
    Hitler Stalin what's your answer to that
  • 29:48
    question it's pretty simple if you knew
  • 29:49
    anything about me I want to be relevant
  • 29:52
    I want to make sure that this President
  • 29:55
    Donald Trump who I didn't vote for ran
  • 29:58
    against is successful we went to
  • 30:00
    president lech homicide in Chicago John
  • 30:03
    and I I don't know we voted for but he's
  • 30:05
    Republican he's possible for the
  • 30:07
    Republican candidate did he vote for
  • 30:10
    Hillary candidate did he vote for
  • 30:11
    this is a question I had asked
  • 30:13
    immediately who did you vote for well if
  • 30:17
    he said he didn't vote for Trump so he
  • 30:19
    told us something about his voting so
  • 30:20
    let's get today to the bottom of it well
  • 30:23
    this is also a part of what we in
  • 30:26
    America certainly do whenever someone is
  • 30:28
    saying something that could in some way
  • 30:30
    the only people who don't do it are us
  • 30:34
    in some way be misconstrued as defending
  • 30:37
    Trump or even giving just a small
  • 30:40
    inkling of an idea that maybe youth you
  • 30:43
    sometimes consider what Trump does in a
  • 30:47
    different light than just Stalin Hitler
  • 30:49
    evil dictator then you have to say
  • 30:52
    either look I didn't vote for him but or
  • 30:56
    you or you can say look I certainly
  • 30:59
    don't agree with everything he says or
  • 31:01
    you can say look some of the things he
  • 31:04
    says are just out just horrible but you
  • 31:07
    got to do that because otherwise you
  • 31:09
    can't deliver commentary in the
  • 31:11
    mainstream media you can just can't so
  • 31:14
    this is an even Lindsey Graham who I
  • 31:16
    think is brave here certainly for him he
  • 31:19
    just can't he has to throw something in
  • 31:21
    like I didn't vote for him against is
  • 31:23
    successful which means you traitor to
  • 31:25
    his party we went to president-elect
  • 31:27
    Obama side in Chicago John and I what
  • 31:31
    can we do to help you mr. president I
  • 31:33
    regret the relationship between the two
  • 31:36
    John is my dearest friend in the world
  • 31:38
    and I'm gonna try to help President
  • 31:39
    Trump and I will because I think country
  • 31:43
    first means that and if he'll listen
  • 31:46
    I'll talk to him I've enjoyed my time
  • 31:48
    with him when he says something bad
  • 31:51
    about John it pisses me off he called
  • 31:53
    yesterday after my speech and he
  • 31:55
    couldn't have been nicer he said that
  • 31:58
    was very sad I just wanna let you know
  • 31:59
    that you did did right by a friend I
  • 32:01
    said thank you mr. president
  • 32:04
    what he did just why the blue because
  • 32:07
    you know to those who want me to say the
  • 32:09
    only way you can honor John McCain is to
  • 32:12
    fight Donald Trump and try to kick him
  • 32:15
    out of office I don't agree I'm going to
  • 32:17
    do what I think is best for the country
  • 32:19
    using what John taught me about the
  • 32:21
    country No there you go yeah said to me
  • 32:26
    yeah well that's yes he's dead to the
  • 32:28
    New York Times they literally said rest
  • 32:31
    in peace Lindsey Graham I mean I
  • 32:33
    understand the metaphor and it's damiĆ£o
  • 32:35
    it's tongue-in-cheek but
  • 32:37
    you know really really really really
  • 32:41
    really know really really really really
  • 32:43
    nasty just nasty these guys are off the
  • 32:46
    rails yeah so I've been having these I
  • 32:51
    want to play a couple of clips and I've
  • 32:53
    got something different some conclusion
  • 32:55
    because I'd come to a new reason that
  • 33:00
    these guys are out to get Trump a new
  • 33:03
    reason well I mean it's not it's the
  • 33:05
    it's probably the reason mm-hmm but it's
  • 33:09
    not a reason we've ever discussed okay
  • 33:12
    and and it just kind of just fell on my
  • 33:16
    lap when I was listening to kind of uh
  • 33:19
    Jim Jordan you know comes on and he's
  • 33:21
    yakking away about one thing or another
  • 33:24
    he's the senator no he's a congressman
  • 33:27
    from Ohio it was gonna be a senator or
  • 33:29
    he hopes to AH he's the big Trump
  • 33:31
    supporter and he's uh he was the guy
  • 33:34
    that got they said he knew about abuse
  • 33:37
    and he should be in jail
  • 33:40
    what yeah isn't Jim Jordan isn't the guy
  • 33:43
    that he apparently knew about some abuse
  • 33:45
    at the athletic department at the
  • 33:47
    college and you should have known and he
  • 33:49
    should have said something oh yes
  • 33:50
    exactly yeah me too
  • 33:56
    yeah gotcha cuz he's important up in
  • 33:59
    comer yeah so you got a smear and it
  • 34:01
    didn't stick the smear did not stick not
  • 34:03
    at all so he's talking about he's on one
  • 34:05
    of the committees that got to do this
  • 34:07
    secret testimony of Bruce or yes who was
  • 34:11
    a number four guy in the Justice
  • 34:14
    Department who was very still there
  • 34:16
    passing he's still there oh he's passing
  • 34:17
    on the the steel information after the
  • 34:20
    FBI has finalized you working for em in
  • 34:22
    yeah this little discussion I think it's
  • 34:25
    kind of interesting but it brings in an
  • 34:27
    interesting another interesting I'm
  • 34:28
    using that work to often point that I
  • 34:31
    need to bring up yeah so you spoke to
  • 34:33
    Bruce or yesterday the president said
  • 34:36
    this about him in a tweet how the hell
  • 34:39
    is Bruce or still employed at the
  • 34:40
    Justice Department disgraceful and which
  • 34:42
    on Rachel Maddow last night was very
  • 34:44
    concerned about the Department of
  • 34:46
    Justice potentially losing Bruce or and
  • 34:49
    you guys grilling him yesterday behind
  • 34:51
    closed doors here's what she said I
  • 34:53
    don't know exactly what these targeted
  • 34:55
    attacks by the White House and
  • 34:56
    congressional Republicans will
  • 34:58
    ultimately do to the capabilities of the
  • 35:00
    Justice Department and the FBI when it
  • 35:02
    comes to fighting things like Russian
  • 35:04
    intelligence operations in the United
  • 35:05
    States and Russian organized crime and
  • 35:08
    Russian money-laundering through
  • 35:09
    American real estate any collusion
  • 35:11
    so Bruce or was key to all that and
  • 35:13
    she's very worried that our national
  • 35:15
    security will be in peril if you guys
  • 35:17
    bully him and he ends up losing a job
  • 35:19
    what we should be worried about is Bruce
  • 35:21
    or senior official at the Justice
  • 35:22
    Department's wife was working for the
  • 35:24
    firm hired by the Clintons to put
  • 35:25
    together the dossier and we know the
  • 35:27
    dossier was the key to all of this and
  • 35:29
    he Bruce or Peter struck told us in the
  • 35:31
    hearing five weeks ago Martha Bruce or
  • 35:33
    is the guy who funneled parts of the
  • 35:35
    dossier to the FBI
  • 35:36
    his wife's working for the Oppo research
  • 35:38
    firm fusion GPS who's been hired by the
  • 35:40
    Clinton campaign and we know the dossier
  • 35:43
    was taken to the court and I'll tell you
  • 35:44
    what we we got confirmed yesterday when
  • 35:47
    they went to the court the FBI knew
  • 35:49
    three important things and they didn't
  • 35:51
    disclose this to the court the
  • 35:53
    new the ORS involvement in production of
  • 35:55
    the dossier they knew that that
  • 35:57
    Christopher still had this extreme bias
  • 36:00
    against the president and they knew who
  • 36:02
    paid for the dossier and they didn't
  • 36:04
    disclose those key facts to the court
  • 36:07
    when they went there to get the warrant
  • 36:09
    to spy on Carter page in the Trump came
  • 36:12
    well it is remarkable when somebody
  • 36:14
    works at the Department of Justice is
  • 36:16
    bringing information and I heard you
  • 36:18
    know basically giving the thumbdrive
  • 36:19
    handing over stuff straight from fusion
  • 36:21
    gps over to over to the FBI and saying
  • 36:25
    here's what we got and he also admitted
  • 36:27
    to in this testimony yesterday that he
  • 36:31
    felt that Steele was biased so they all
  • 36:33
    know that on that side of the equation
  • 36:35
    but but then when they apply for the
  • 36:37
    FISA warrant they don't mention that
  • 36:38
    they don't include that that part of at
  • 36:41
    least you would say all but a good
  • 36:43
    majority of what they're basing the FISA
  • 36:44
    warrant on is not it hasn't been
  • 36:48
    disclosed that the person who told them
  • 36:50
    is very biased okay nothing new really
  • 36:53
    here well to me there was okay what part
  • 36:56
    was new Russian money-laundering I think
  • 37:02
    because I was thinking about this who
  • 37:04
    was the big money laundering guy whose
  • 37:06
    guys know the most about money
  • 37:08
    laundering that was in those in the
  • 37:10
    business there I did but less late years
  • 37:13
    of the Obama administration who is maybe
  • 37:16
    associate with HBS see one of the guys
  • 37:19
    call money Comey Comey Columbia knew
  • 37:22
    about money laundering because he worked
  • 37:24
    with HB SC which is the biggest money
  • 37:26
    launderer in the world and if you look
  • 37:28
    into it real estate money laundering
  • 37:31
    which is what Rachel brought up and I'm
  • 37:33
    not even sure what which is what
  • 37:35
    Russians like to do is bigger than bank
  • 37:38
    money laundering huh and I think this
  • 37:42
    has been a but it a which Anna source
  • 37:44
    but I think call me knew that the Trump
  • 37:46
    Organization because he was a much he
  • 37:49
    knows it's a competition it was our
  • 37:51
    competition oh my goodness yes keep
  • 37:55
    going oh my goodness yes keep
  • 37:56
    who's the competition well his Trump guy
  • 37:58
    this guy's kicking ass he's got all
  • 38:00
    these deals he's got them all over the
  • 38:01
    world if you're looking into it you go
  • 38:03
    to Google and start looking up money
  • 38:06
    how to do it in real estate just a
  • 38:09
    number of good articles well don't you
  • 38:12
    put the money into it into a trust
  • 38:15
    there's no there's ten ways or ten ways
  • 38:17
    to Sunday I'm just gonna read a couple
  • 38:19
    of things so you get a clue about this
  • 38:21
    real estate is an established method of
  • 38:24
    money laundering internationally in the
  • 38:25
    finance action task for it Forrest Fatih
  • 38:29
    has recognized that the real estate
  • 38:31
    sector is a high-risk sector for money
  • 38:33
    laundering and it frequently attracts
  • 38:35
    criminals who want to monitor monitor or
  • 38:38
    launder money so why is it easier to
  • 38:41
    launder money through real estate then
  • 38:43
    banks why why is it well here we go it's
  • 38:48
    simpler to do real estate than other
  • 38:50
    avenues because of the related
  • 38:51
    governance in the United States for
  • 38:54
    example real estate brokers and agents
  • 38:55
    are exempted from from performing due
  • 38:59
    diligence over the buyer ah Australia
  • 39:03
    there's no reporting and requirements
  • 39:04
    over real estate brokers and lawyers and
  • 39:06
    apparently China does all its money
  • 39:09
    laundering through Australia United
  • 39:11
    Kingdom any foreign company can buy
  • 39:13
    property you care about having an
  • 39:15
    in-country presence it goes on about and
  • 39:18
    there's no there's no there's no
  • 39:21
    reporting so the global you know that
  • 39:23
    just like if I could just say that I
  • 39:25
    remember is true is because when we were
  • 39:27
    living in in the UK at some point we
  • 39:30
    were looking to buy a home and not being
  • 39:33
    a resident you know I basically just had
  • 39:37
    a green card but not not being a full-on
  • 39:39
    resident it wasn't possible it was the
  • 39:42
    whole bunch of problems it had to be
  • 39:44
    could be an offshore company there's
  • 39:45
    yeah I I okay I recognized some of this
  • 39:49
    he goes on this report says that the
  • 39:51
    global illicit finance flows report
  • 39:53
    estimates that China Russia China Russia
  • 39:56
    and India are the top three countries
  • 39:59
    receiving ill-gotten money moving out of
  • 40:01
    the United States they don't talk about
  • 40:03
    moving into the United States but a lot
  • 40:05
    of the money laundering is going in the
  • 40:07
    other direction is it's a profitable
  • 40:08
    business we have a lot of drug dealing
  • 40:10
    in this country and if you pointed out
  • 40:12
    before the banks benefited the most but
  • 40:14
    maybe and certainly the HSBC HSBC
  • 40:17
    literally benefited from drug money
  • 40:19
    there are billions and billions of
  • 40:21
    dollars of illicit drug money that needs
  • 40:24
    to be laundered in this country probably
  • 40:26
    more than any other country although
  • 40:28
    apparently the Chinese sources
  • 40:30
    so how does it work someone shows up and
  • 40:33
    says Trump I want to buy an apartment ok
  • 40:36
    that's 5 million bucks he gives you five
  • 40:38
    million cash I would presume no you have
  • 40:42
    now you have to get into the details it
  • 40:44
    becomes there's about suic there's they
  • 40:47
    have eight methodologies listed one is
  • 40:50
    cash deposits the easiest most common
  • 40:52
    way used by amateur money launderers
  • 40:53
    you'd use cash to buy property
  • 40:55
    renovation and selling as high-end
  • 40:58
    property Trump Tower in direct payment
  • 41:02
    renovations nice
  • 41:04
    yeah renovations a good way a direct
  • 41:07
    payment using a loan or a mortgage under
  • 41:10
    valuating the under valuation of
  • 41:13
    property and it's like I said person and
  • 41:15
    all he has to do was turn around and and
  • 41:17
    sell it and the price doesn't matter
  • 41:20
    right because he keeps he keeps whatever
  • 41:24
    overseas ownership scams successive son
  • 41:27
    so let's take a look at it from this
  • 41:29
    perspective call me is the money
  • 41:33
    launderer or was related and he's not a
  • 41:35
    one personally but he worked at a bank
  • 41:37
    that is notoriously one of the biggest
  • 41:39
    and weren't that weren't the Clintons
  • 41:41
    also involved in HSBC and Samaritans
  • 41:45
    know about this too
  • 41:46
    yeah I think all these guys do there's a
  • 41:48
    corrupt operation running this country
  • 41:50
    there they see the Trump Organization I
  • 41:54
    don't know if they have any evidence or
  • 41:55
    proof or anything in between HSI told us
  • 41:58
    I'm doing research in real time with
  • 42:01
    HSBC doing research in real time with
  • 42:03
    donated 881 million dollars to the
  • 42:06
    Clinton Foundation why Hillary would
  • 42:12
    shut up when they got elected the
  • 42:14
    terrible foundation this is from The
  • 42:15
    Guardian run by Hillary Clinton her
  • 42:17
    families received as much as 81 million
  • 42:19
    from wealthy international donors who
  • 42:21
    were clients of HSBC's controversial
  • 42:23
    Swiss bank well I mean they eat the the
  • 42:26
    easy way is you send 81 million to the
  • 42:29
    Clinton Foundation no one looks at their
  • 42:31
    books and you poop it out somewhere else
  • 42:33
    and it's like 75 million here's your
  • 42:35
    money you go get it in Africa from the
  • 42:38
    vaccinations people there's a lot of
  • 42:41
    ways I don't know how to do that I don't
  • 42:43
    know the intricacies I know we better
  • 42:44
    learn because the curry dvorak money
  • 42:46
    laundering real estate is already LLC
  • 42:50
    baby so now we're taking a look at so
  • 42:53
    this is why they went they locked up
  • 42:56
    manna for figuring that he must know
  • 42:58
    something about the message about some
  • 43:00
    of this even though he's didn't work for
  • 43:01
    Trump's organization but then they
  • 43:03
    grabbed Trump's bookkeeper at the of the
  • 43:07
    Trump Organization because they wanted
  • 43:09
    to know how the money flows yes yes this
  • 43:12
    is yes yes so they grabbed this guy and
  • 43:16
    now they got him and they give him
  • 43:18
    immunity because we know that every this
  • 43:21
    is going on in every real estate company
  • 43:24
    of course bright got it
  • 43:27
    so I'm thinking the following based on
  • 43:30
    something I didn't have I heard him talk
  • 43:32
    but I didn't clip it because I didn't
  • 43:33
    think about it or heard this Rachel
  • 43:34
    dropped this little gem about how Bruce
  • 43:38
    or is the guy behind the research into
  • 43:40
    money laundering and there and so that's
  • 43:45
    why they want to keep him at the Justice
  • 43:47
    Department and she's all upset about is
  • 43:48
    Lucy somebody told her this because she
  • 43:52
    doesn't say something like that out of
  • 43:53
    the blue and she's in the circles right
  • 43:55
    she's a high you know we get our sources
  • 43:58
    for to tell us different things she has
  • 43:59
    her sources and she's in Washington DC
  • 44:01
    in New York where you get to hear all
  • 44:04
    this wonderfully nicely' sources yeah
  • 44:06
    yeah yes yeah and they say yeah we're
  • 44:09
    out to get him because he's your money
  • 44:10
    line alright so let's so let's put them
  • 44:12
    you have more you want to put this
  • 44:13
    together now let's be gone I got a
  • 44:14
    couple more
  • 44:16
    well hold on hold on let me get my need
  • 44:18
    more yarn to string between the nails in
  • 44:20
    the wall
  • 44:22
    okay go so let's think that let's think
  • 44:26
    here's the thing that John Dean said I
  • 44:28
    wanted recall who's John Dean John Dean
  • 44:32
    is the guy who turned turtle on a Nixon
  • 44:36
    administration it was the first guy they
  • 44:37
    bring Nixon and help bring Nixon on he
  • 44:39
    was his lawyer
  • 44:40
    ah okay and so good Trump's lawyer has
  • 44:44
    gone for thirty hours and he's gonna
  • 44:47
    quit now and Trump says it's fine he's
  • 44:49
    you know he doesn't have a trump is
  • 44:50
    extremely confident yeah that there's no
  • 44:54
    problem here and John Dean made a very
  • 44:56
    interesting comment on a interview on
  • 44:59
    one of these shows which i think is
  • 45:02
    pertinent he said that the trump's
  • 45:07
    lawyers they don't know anything
  • 45:12
    they have to kind of deconstruct and
  • 45:14
    reconstruct and deconstruct and
  • 45:16
    reconstruct to try to figure out what
  • 45:18
    the hell's going on because Trump never
  • 45:21
    tells them anything right these deals
  • 45:25
    are all done by Trump mm-hmm because
  • 45:30
    he's smart enough to know that if you're
  • 45:32
    gonna be involved in some sort of some
  • 45:34
    sort of business like this just to stay
  • 45:37
    in business and to keep your
  • 45:38
    organizational life you can't beef it's
  • 45:41
    not a memo about it know who knows
  • 45:43
    what's going on there's not gonna be an
  • 45:45
    email or anything it's just gonna be hey
  • 45:47
    I'll see you at the corner with a brown
  • 45:50
    bag pretty much yeah
  • 45:54
    that's that and so Trump they've got
  • 45:57
    nothing on him and he might by the way
  • 46:00
    I've never done anything but it just
  • 46:02
    there's just this this sense that he's
  • 46:05
    his whole organization is that somehow
  • 46:07
    I'm because it's so big and it's
  • 46:09
    international and it has all the
  • 46:11
    earmarks golf courses by the way yes yes
  • 46:14
    you know what fits perfectly into this
  • 46:17
    Bitcoin yeah golf courses are used by
  • 46:23
    the Yakuza and as a as more than a
  • 46:28
    musician more than money laundering and
  • 46:30
    and there's some elements of this with
  • 46:33
    Trump's operations the the Yakuza would
  • 46:37
    have these own most of these really
  • 46:39
    interesting golf courses the best golf
  • 46:41
    courses in Japan they tried to buy
  • 46:44
    Pebble Beach here in Monterey it was
  • 46:48
    kind of pushed out because people know
  • 46:49
    about this and they know what they were
  • 46:51
    gonna do at Pebble Beach and they
  • 46:52
    actually announced that we're gonna do
  • 46:54
    this and what they do is they have
  • 46:55
    extremely high annual fees you have to
  • 46:59
    pay like ten thousand to one hundred
  • 47:01
    thousand dollars a year to belong to the
  • 47:03
    club mm-hmm and so typically what
  • 47:05
    happens in Japan is that if you like
  • 47:07
    walk down the street and step on some
  • 47:09
    Yakuza's foot and offend them you end up
  • 47:13
    having to pay tribute by taking out a
  • 47:17
    membership if you will become him it's
  • 47:20
    that that's the kind of aversion of the
  • 47:22
    sharpton shakedown only you kill this
  • 47:24
    variation so you have to be a member now
  • 47:29
    so now it's ten to a hundred thousand
  • 47:31
    dollars a year to become a member and
  • 47:32
    this is your tribute to these guys cuz
  • 47:34
    you you stepped on his foot they were
  • 47:36
    gonna buy when they were gonna buy palm
  • 47:38
    the pebble pebble be sorry pebble beach
  • 47:42
    in Monterey they already talked about
  • 47:43
    bringing the owner the club feast ten
  • 47:47
    thousand to twenty thousand dollars a
  • 47:49
    year and maybe go higher and that was
  • 47:52
    kind of the tip office I mean hey here's
  • 47:53
    what here's the scam they're playing
  • 47:56
    here now Trump's these are very
  • 47:58
    expensive too but there's no evidence
  • 48:00
    that it's because it's a tribute to
  • 48:01
    trump it's like maybe access who knows
  • 48:04
    we don't know but it all adds
  • 48:07
    to somebody who sees everything in terms
  • 48:10
    of crime which would be people like
  • 48:12
    Muller mm-hmm call me to a lesser extent
  • 48:14
    mm-hmm and so they just think he's a bad
  • 48:18
    guy and it's from the beginning and the
  • 48:20
    bad guy part of it is this money
  • 48:22
    laundering and they're gonna they're
  • 48:23
    gonna do everything they can to just let
  • 48:27
    me let me play this back so first we're
  • 48:31
    asserting that there's gambling going on
  • 48:34
    there oh yeah I II in real estate
  • 48:37
    there's a lot of money laundering yeah
  • 48:39
    very shocked about this but we've seen
  • 48:41
    New York in particular
  • 48:43
    another element Giuliani his right-hand
  • 48:49
    man now
  • 48:50
    Giuliani the mayor of New York don't kid
  • 48:53
    me about you know his girl that his
  • 48:56
    powers got to be connected yeah right
  • 49:00
    okay so this is much bigger than we've
  • 49:02
    ever even really thought about it but
  • 49:04
    what happened was call me and the gang
  • 49:09
    know all about Trump as the money
  • 49:13
    launderer and did anyone just stay in
  • 49:17
    the middle of Manhattan look around you
  • 49:18
    can see there's all these apartments
  • 49:20
    luxury apartments starting at a minimum
  • 49:23
    of two million dollars that are empty so
  • 49:25
    yeah that makes a lot of sense but calm
  • 49:28
    ease in the game and he's been doing his
  • 49:31
    own running his own racket maybe with
  • 49:34
    the Clintons maybe that that's what he's
  • 49:36
    most worried about is the 81 million
  • 49:38
    let's just say that was somehow some
  • 49:39
    laundering deal because the Clintons
  • 49:41
    have been doing this and with Russia for
  • 49:43
    sure with Russia we know they're mid
  • 49:45
    this may be where Browder comes in who
  • 49:46
    knows but Comey just sits and goes we
  • 49:50
    can't have a horrible guy like that so
  • 49:53
    maybe he was actually pure in his
  • 49:54
    thinking because his I'm one of these
  • 49:57
    guys I'm horrible person we can't have
  • 50:00
    this horrible type of person be
  • 50:01
    President is that what you're saying
  • 50:03
    that he was gonna have Hillary
  • 50:06
    well if we're gonna have to choose
  • 50:07
    between horrible people and this really
  • 50:09
    is the lesser of two evils maybe he
  • 50:11
    wanted the lawyer who ya the devil you
  • 50:15
    know versus the laundry you don't but is
  • 50:18
    that really I mean is that really the
  • 50:21
    reason or is it just more like holy crap
  • 50:23
    we can't he or he'll uncover us how
  • 50:27
    about that he knows the game he'll find
  • 50:29
    it he'll uncover it and we'll be done
  • 50:31
    with well you know Trump talked about
  • 50:34
    this when he was running he says you
  • 50:36
    know I know cuz I've been giving
  • 50:38
    campaign donations and he had all these
  • 50:41
    implications that he knew how the system
  • 50:43
    worked better than anybody because he
  • 50:45
    was on top of the system and he may have
  • 50:49
    been talking about more things than one
  • 50:50
    and yeah perhaps and it is the kind if
  • 50:54
    it is the competition is always a good
  • 50:56
    thing to take it out
  • 51:00
    I'd give you clip of the day if you had
  • 51:02
    a clip that was good
  • 51:05
    I'd like that so what do we need to look
  • 51:07
    out for then you just keep this in mind
  • 51:10
    it's like Oh me for sure still all eyes
  • 51:12
    on Comey
  • 51:14
    yeah Kobe's off the rails well that's
  • 51:21
    very interesting I need tonight I
  • 51:23
    thought it was the different different
  • 51:25
    yes and I need to revisit the Comey
  • 51:27
    story with HSBC cuz that was that was
  • 51:30
    quite the mess that he was in that
  • 51:32
    somehow he mean no one got indicted of
  • 51:35
    anything the bank dollar fines which
  • 51:39
    nobody got indicted for anything that
  • 51:40
    has to do with any banks yes one of our
  • 51:42
    producers sent us a very long interview
  • 51:44
    it's a podcast on the interesting is
  • 51:47
    called intercepted the Jeremy Scahill
  • 51:49
    and in interview with sy Hersh and I was
  • 51:52
    trying to chop it up this morning but it
  • 51:55
    was just too much and he would go off on
  • 51:56
    these tangents I'm gonna I'm gonna tire
  • 51:58
    just completely yeah i'ma try a
  • 52:00
    difficult to edit I'll try again for
  • 52:02
    Thursday but he's making some claims in
  • 52:04
    there that I think what about well he
  • 52:08
    knows about the criminal activity
  • 52:10
    surrounding 9/11 and he says this I've
  • 52:13
    been on this story have not stopped
  • 52:14
    it's an effing great story and it was
  • 52:17
    people in reaching themselves well well
  • 52:20
    let's take another look at what the do
  • 52:22
    it the Trump in the real estate and call
  • 52:24
    me and banking and knowing that
  • 52:26
    according to this report banks and real
  • 52:28
    estates are the two major competitors
  • 52:30
    when it comes to money laundering
  • 52:33
    worldwide right and you have the Obama
  • 52:35
    administration noting it would even
  • 52:37
    during that after the collapse of the
  • 52:39
    banking system pretty much in 2008
  • 52:41
    putting nobody in jail right zero that
  • 52:45
    has to do with the bank let's assume
  • 52:47
    that and he brought comeon from a
  • 52:49
    corrupt bank and so let's say that the
  • 52:52
    Obama administration was a banking
  • 52:54
    oriented operation for the bankers and
  • 52:58
    Trump is protecting the real estate
  • 53:00
    people so right so we have real estate
  • 53:02
    versus banks beautiful yeah
  • 53:07
    of course and and sometimes those worlds
  • 53:10
    collide how about this so Trump let's
  • 53:13
    just say Trump knows there's money to be
  • 53:14
    made I got I got I got a guy wants to
  • 53:17
    once the make some money a different
  • 53:19
    color you know I'm saying like bleach
  • 53:20
    dad bleach bid that money so he goes to
  • 53:24
    a bank to borrow to buy something to buy
  • 53:29
    something that he'll then sell and grab
  • 53:31
    a profit off of reselling whitewashing
  • 53:34
    the money pay back the loan
  • 53:38
    you'd also notice that there's a lot of
  • 53:40
    the of the during this period of they're
  • 53:43
    trying to keep Trump from getting
  • 53:44
    elected they tried to make him look like
  • 53:47
    he was bankrupt he's no good yeah I'm
  • 53:49
    getting you see his taxes that's that's
  • 53:53
    one of the things that's that sy Hersh
  • 53:54
    who's a Peabody award-winning journalist
  • 53:57
    he said Pulitzer I'm sorry
  • 54:00
    he said that Mueller saw Trump's tax
  • 54:03
    returns in the very beginning right away
  • 54:06
    nothing they're useless
  • 54:10
    that'd be yeah I just thought the nurse
  • 54:12
    says it I believe it I believe it too
  • 54:15
    and I would say that which is why Muller
  • 54:17
    hasn't you know gone out of his way to
  • 54:19
    make it potent you know we make
  • 54:20
    appointment has been shut down yeah
  • 54:23
    by except for dummies because it's
  • 54:26
    probably whoever to says that you can
  • 54:29
    tell they're not part of this system
  • 54:30
    they haven't been read in and they're
  • 54:32
    not in the know and so it may be
  • 54:37
    actually a trap
  • 54:38
    so Trump brings out the disease look
  • 54:42
    it's maybe one of these things at the
  • 54:43
    last minute if he has to do it he'll
  • 54:44
    bring him out there'll be nothing there
  • 54:46
    because he's done such a good job I mean
  • 54:48
    this is not a guy who is you can tell
  • 54:52
    that he's pretty guileless I mean he's
  • 54:54
    got he doesn't get shook easy he gets
  • 54:57
    mad at certain people he doesn't like
  • 54:58
    personal insults he does have some you
  • 55:02
    know personality quirks mm-hmm but by
  • 55:06
    far as I can tell he's doing the job he
  • 55:08
    was hired to do this is one way of doing
  • 55:17
    it hired to do this is one way of doing
  • 55:18
    this is really fantastic but I like the
  • 55:21
    idea of banks versus real estate people
  • 55:24
    because there's two different investment
  • 55:26
    groups and they don't mix very well
  • 55:28
    banks will loan money to create more oh
  • 55:32
    sorry didn't mean to do that
  • 55:34
    I know more how that happened piece of
  • 55:36
    the action yeah but they don't you know
  • 55:38
    they're not oh yeah yes so we have CIA
  • 55:41
    dia and then we have banks versus real
  • 55:45
    estate companies that makes sense makes
  • 55:48
    sense companies that makes sense makes
  • 55:50
    okay well that is very different eyes
  • 55:53
    and his stuff fits in here all of a
  • 55:55
    sudden I'm just stringing the yarn again
  • 55:59
    between the nails on the board with the
  • 56:01
    photos of everybody Magnitsky act plays
  • 56:04
    into this the whole bunch of things
  • 56:08
    yeah and well okay I think the cipher
  • 56:12
    I'm gonna I'm definitely gonna try and
  • 56:13
    chop that up I think that's sy Hersh
  • 56:15
    interview will be key so now I now I
  • 56:17
    need to look at pretty much everything
  • 56:19
    with the whole different light I like it
  • 56:23
    I like it give yourself a little pat on
  • 56:25
    the shoulder I'm doing it that now and

    a policy they had a temporary policy
  • 1:02:49
    which they closed the survey hold on let
  • 1:02:53
    me see if I can find it now that would
  • 1:02:56
    be rather disappointing they said you
  • 1:03:00
    know when these companies just dumped
  • 1:03:02
    all the stuff right in middle of Austin
  • 1:03:04
    they came up with oh we have an
  • 1:03:06
    emergency administrative rule governing
  • 1:03:08
    doclist mobility and this went into
  • 1:03:11
    effect on May 7th and what's interesting
  • 1:03:14
    is these are their policy and I think
  • 1:03:19
    there's some problems with it and they
  • 1:03:21
    had to serve even know what you're
  • 1:03:22
    talking about
  • 1:03:24
    ok so all of a sudden like many places
  • 1:03:27
    around America we've been talking about
  • 1:03:29
    this for months
  • 1:03:31
    companies dropped scooters and bicycles
  • 1:03:34
    in the city without any any debt we just
  • 1:03:37
    dropped them in didn't talk to the city
  • 1:03:39
    just drop them in and so city councils
  • 1:03:41
    instead of saying hey get the hell out
  • 1:03:43
    is everyone adopted this room there were
  • 1:03:45
    asleep at the wheel
  • 1:03:46
    they created emergency administrative
  • 1:03:49
    rules and now those are now becoming the
  • 1:03:52
    full-on rules and they're deficient well
  • 1:03:56
    you're telling me that they actually
  • 1:03:57
    have a rule to approve the drawing the
  • 1:04:01
    bikes all over the place because there's
  • 1:04:02
    dhoklas yes well why well no why because
  • 1:04:08
    they're idiots
  • 1:04:09
    ok instead of saying you know hey what
  • 1:04:15
    we the major gripe I have I didn't care
  • 1:04:18
    if these things are just dumped
  • 1:04:20
    everywhere get off the sidewalk they're
  • 1:04:23
    actually encouraging this on the
  • 1:04:25
    sidewalk behavior ting around and
  • 1:04:27
    high-speed scooter on the sidewalk we
  • 1:04:30
    have we have bicycle paths we are famous
  • 1:04:32
    for a bicycle paths that no one used
  • 1:04:35
    until that - nobody uses them now we
  • 1:04:38
    have all these bikes and scooters but
  • 1:04:41
    they're saying people who plan to use
  • 1:04:43
    ductless mobility services to do so in a
  • 1:04:45
    safe and ethical manner please follow
  • 1:04:47
    these guidelines to help keep Austin
  • 1:04:49
    moving safely pedestrians first yield to
  • 1:04:53
    people walking on sidewalks what the
  • 1:04:55
    hell walking on sidewalks what the
  • 1:04:57
    you have a motorized vehicle on the
  • 1:04:59
    sidewalk I don't sound like an old
  • 1:05:00
    fuddy-duddy yeah you sound like one well
  • 1:05:03
    screw that part man we got to get around
  • 1:05:07
    somehow you know and this is better than
  • 1:05:09
    walking write and report if you see a
  • 1:05:13
    unit toppled over or parked improperly
  • 1:05:16
    help out by writing the unit and
  • 1:05:18
    reporting the issues do the work for
  • 1:05:20
    them yeah and then report the issue to
  • 1:05:22
    Austin 3 1 1
  • 1:05:26
    hello 3-1-1 I picked up a bicycle yes
  • 1:05:29
    good word up good work citizen pat
  • 1:05:33
    yourself on the shoulder citizen good
  • 1:05:34
    work on the shoulder citizen good
  • 1:05:37
    now here is something that is definitely
  • 1:05:39
    not here just I want to stop you first
  • 1:05:41
    and mention what San Francisco has done
  • 1:05:45
    San Francisco poop on them and light
  • 1:05:48
    them on fire the San Francisco besides
  • 1:05:51
    you don't throw the things in the drink
  • 1:05:52
    which some people do San Francisco
  • 1:05:55
    collect some the city collects them
  • 1:05:57
    before the other guys but before the
  • 1:05:59
    owners collect them because there's
  • 1:06:00
    trucks going around picking these things
  • 1:06:02
    up yeah but if San Francisco sees one in
  • 1:06:05
    this lunch somebody just laying around
  • 1:06:06
    they'd throw it in a truck and then they
  • 1:06:08
    impound it in this 150 bucks to get it
  • 1:06:10
    back right that's the Dare so there's a
  • 1:06:14
    profit Center yeah make these bikes a
  • 1:06:17
    profit center for your community well
  • 1:06:19
    they're not gonna do that but hi it's
  • 1:06:22
    cuz Oh didn't we answer that already no
  • 1:06:25
    idiots yes why don't you run for City
  • 1:06:29
    Council yes why don't you run for City
  • 1:06:29
    I've free of no yes I'm doing a podcast
  • 1:06:33
    here now but I filled out their survey
  • 1:06:36
    and I was very clear that I found this I
  • 1:06:39
    find this entire movement to be
  • 1:06:42
    discriminatory since you need to have a
  • 1:06:44
    smartphone in order to activate it I
  • 1:06:46
    agree so I think that's discriminatory
  • 1:06:48
    but also as part of the rules
  • 1:06:53
    this is and I just don't think they're
  • 1:06:55
    playing by these rules users will have
  • 1:06:58
    access to dhoklas mobility services
  • 1:07:01
    without having to share personally
  • 1:07:03
    identifiable information and can opt
  • 1:07:06
    into data sharing only after getting
  • 1:07:08
    clear information about what data will
  • 1:07:10
    be shared Oh bullcrap you have to you
  • 1:07:13
    have to give me a driver's license just
  • 1:07:16
    to be able to use the system
  • 1:07:19
    so that's not true yeah oh yeah I'm sure
  • 1:07:22
    you have to opt in but they say you
  • 1:07:23
    should be able to use it without sharing
  • 1:07:25
    your information so they're not doing
  • 1:07:28
    any of that anyway
  • 1:07:31
    it's Austin's crazy
  • 1:07:34
    luckily it's only downtown listen to the
  • 1:07:36
    the following now yeah well yeah now
  • 1:07:40
    it's sir I had lunch with Sir Jean the
  • 1:07:42
    other day and I you know we from time
  • 1:07:45
    that he doesn't leave he so it came in
  • 1:07:47
    downtown and we're eating our salads yes
  • 1:07:49
    as two dudes do very nice and just one
  • 1:07:52
    soon one scooter after another Jean says
  • 1:07:55
    I'd never seen it like this
  • 1:07:56
    it's just don't chill one after another
  • 1:07:59
    tuna chewing on the sidewalk scooping
  • 1:08:03
    around so listen to this this is the the
  • 1:08:09
    company's and number of units they have
  • 1:08:11
    this is just downtown bird scooters has
  • 1:08:14
    500 scooters and they have 500
  • 1:08:16
    supplemental licenses then there's jump
  • 1:08:20
    they have 250 bicycles lime has 500
  • 1:08:24
    scooters and an additional 500
  • 1:08:25
    supplemental licenses pace has 500
  • 1:08:28
    bicycles vo ride has 350 bicycles but
  • 1:08:33
    here's what's interesting there is 20
  • 1:08:37
    scooters belonged to the goat
  • 1:08:40
    company so if anyone sees a goat scooter
  • 1:08:44
    steal that for me and then there's
  • 1:08:47
    there's one out of it called spin that
  • 1:08:49
    has one scooter that's really
  • 1:08:53
    interesting one scooter anyway so
  • 1:08:56
    they're gonna make this all permanent
  • 1:08:58
    and there's not a single thing about
  • 1:08:59
    where you're supposed to operate these I
  • 1:09:01
    think that you know it just kind of
  • 1:09:03
    makes sense I'm all for it by the way
  • 1:09:06
    I'm not against that just but let's
  • 1:09:07
    let's pretty numbers but yeah but you
  • 1:09:10
    don't live downtown Austin
  • 1:09:12
    you should be able to use them without a
  • 1:09:15
    smartphone anyway so all you actually
  • 1:09:18
    you throw it oh okay so you don't really
  • 1:09:21
    care about these scooters being a menace
  • 1:09:23
    to society
  • 1:09:24
    yes I do I care about you just care the
  • 1:09:26
    fact that you don't have you can't get
  • 1:09:28
    them gig no you know I knew you would
  • 1:09:29
    say that no but yes because what you
  • 1:09:32
    just said I think that is that is the
  • 1:09:34
    biggest problem and if any of you
  • 1:09:36
    everybody would use it on the street or
  • 1:09:38
    on the bike path where it belongs then I
  • 1:09:40
    would be okay with it
  • 1:09:41
    but that's not what it is the situation
  • 1:09:43
    is out of control so now so until I am
  • 1:09:47
    just putting my my foot in the sand here
  • 1:09:49
    until they give me a smartphone free
  • 1:09:56
    I'm going to I'm going to take a sharpie
  • 1:09:59
    and every single one of these that I see
  • 1:10:01
    I'm going to scratch out with indelible
  • 1:10:03
    Sharpie ink the QR code so it will
  • 1:10:05
    render the whole device useless
  • 1:10:08
    oh you've become a vandal yes I'm going
  • 1:10:11
    to vandalize okay vandalizing
  • 1:10:15
    I think a can of black paint and
  • 1:10:17
    spray-paint would be easier just a quick
  • 1:10:21
    little blast
  • 1:10:21
    yeah but I'm afraid you couldn't you can
  • 1:10:23
    scratch that off and a Sharpie is much
  • 1:10:25
    harder but that truly is that'sa kilise
  • 1:10:27
    healing use well if you want to have
  • 1:10:29
    some fun just take a little spray of
  • 1:10:31
    acetone I'll try that see if we can get
  • 1:10:34
    it off yes good one no I know tato just
  • 1:10:37
    curl up anything that's plastic yeah
  • 1:10:39
    that's the tones nasty for plastic so
  • 1:10:41
    sir jean and i had lunch at mad greens
  • 1:10:45
    which is truly as a salad place and
  • 1:10:47
    there was a long line yeah this is a
  • 1:10:50
    great format there's a couple of places
  • 1:10:52
    here flower child has it and it's
  • 1:10:55
    basically a cafeteria with nice tables
  • 1:11:00
    and you wait in line and you go by the
  • 1:11:02
    lunch ladies and they yeah you can
  • 1:11:04
    choose maybe some variation but at all
  • 1:11:06
    it's all right there like Chipotle it's
  • 1:11:08
    kind of that get used to prison and they
  • 1:11:14
    don't give you metal a silverware that
  • 1:11:16
    you can rattle so don't have that yet
  • 1:11:22
    but when they put those in you'll know
  • 1:11:23
    your training is almost complete would
  • 1:11:25
    you like the tin cup sir oh I'm about to
  • 1:11:28
    graduate and and it's taken quite a
  • 1:11:32
    while but yeah we're chatting away so it
  • 1:11:34
    was not a problem and we get up to the
  • 1:11:35
    front and jeez I'm so sorry so sorry
  • 1:11:37
    we're really short-handed today so what
  • 1:11:39
    everyone's sick no we can't get people
  • 1:11:43
    to work what I mean they just don't show
  • 1:11:45
    up no no we can't hire people we we need
  • 1:11:48
    people desperately we cannot hire a
  • 1:11:51
    single person and it's like 15 guys have
  • 1:11:54
    your homeless guys vagabonds walking out
  • 1:11:56
    front my head is exploding we have jobs
  • 1:12:00
    here here's like real jobs a real
  • 1:12:03
    necessity they don't pay enough I guess
  • 1:12:07
    I thought she said it's beneath me now
  • 1:12:11
    that's probably it but you know I think
  • 1:12:14
    that people should do the to take it
  • 1:12:16
    take advantage of this opportunity
  • 1:12:17
    because you know then you can learn how
  • 1:12:19
    to also work in the prison system yeah
  • 1:12:23
    there's a handy how's the prison full up
  • 1:12:29
    I'm gonna go in and comes in one flavor
  • 1:12:32
    I think they I think they probably are
  • 1:12:35
    offering 15 bucks an hour bring anybody
  • 1:12:42
    in do you had you know anyone who wants
  • 1:12:44
    to work sit on it was there any
  • 1:12:46
    repercussions in the city after the near
  • 1:12:49
    University there in Austin lost again to
  • 1:12:51
    the mediocre Terrapins from Maryland in
  • 1:12:54
    the football game
  • 1:12:55
    oh I have no idea i I didn't didn't
  • 1:12:58

    it's okay so no no one's talking about
  • 1:13:29
    that also I'm not walking outside it's a
  • 1:13:31
    hundred degrees I don't talk not talking
  • 1:13:34
    to anybody but we're still one of the
  • 1:13:36
    great quirky places to retire we're
  • 1:13:39
    number one
  • 1:13:40
    everyone's coming to Austin for
  • 1:13:42
    retirement now yeah we're Howard know
  • 1:13:44
    we're great quirky place to retire all
  • 1:13:47
    quirky yes quirky quirky yeah okay let's
  • 1:13:56
    go change a few topics here I got one
  • 1:13:58
    that's kind of off-the-wall
  • 1:13:59
    this is Faraj apparently he's thinking
  • 1:14:00
    about running for London's mayor the
  • 1:14:02
    truth is a group of people have
  • 1:14:04
    approached me they say look there are
  • 1:14:07
    more people in London that voted for
  • 1:14:09
    brexit invaded for Sadiq Khan when he
  • 1:14:12
    became mayor and actually if you look at
  • 1:14:14
    the numbers that is true but for those
  • 1:14:17
    of you wildly speculating I have quite
  • 1:14:20
    frankly I've been so busy that asked me
  • 1:14:22
    in the last few weeks I've barely given
  • 1:14:24
    it a moment's thought I will give it a
  • 1:14:26
    moment's thought over the course of the
  • 1:14:28
    next week I'm probably not gonna do it
  • 1:14:30
    but I will certainly think about it Hey
  • 1:14:32
    who know hmm hmm that could be very
  • 1:14:36
    interesting well it is a stepping stone
  • 1:14:39
    to better higher offices I mean no it's
  • 1:14:41
    the stepping stone to like the real deal
  • 1:14:43
    yeah I mean that's what Boris Johnson
  • 1:14:46
    came from right right right rest assured
  • 1:14:48
    he was almost a prime minister that
  • 1:14:52
    would have been so cool
  • 1:14:54
    it would have been funnier than what
  • 1:14:56
    we've got great for the show oh yeah
  • 1:14:57
    Theresa May is boring
  • 1:15:00
    oh and and whenever she does something
  • 1:15:02
    interesting it's video like her little
  • 1:15:05
    jig she was dancing with the yeah right
  • 1:15:08
    she's not good for this show good for
  • 1:15:10
    the show very bad makes horrible faces
  • 1:15:12
    and the sauce that's all visual
  • 1:15:15
    television it's not good not good for us
  • 1:15:17
    so she's out so this could be good that
  • 1:15:21
    would be fun he just kind of drew it out
  • 1:15:23
    there I think as if that was his feeler
  • 1:15:25
    [Music] I think as if that was his feeler
  • 1:15:28
    well here's another kind of back to the
  • 1:15:32
    bank versus real estate I do have this
  • 1:15:35
    clip this is the money funding funneling
  • 1:15:39
    operation which they're all atwitter
  • 1:15:40
    about thinking that this is another way
  • 1:15:42
    to get Trump tell us about this case of
  • 1:15:45
    this American lobbyist who pleaded
  • 1:15:47
    guilty today to funneling illegally
  • 1:15:49
    funneling money from some sort of
  • 1:15:52
    foreign source to the Trump inaugural
  • 1:15:55
    campaign and also not registering as a
  • 1:15:58
    foreign age right his name is Samuel
  • 1:16:00
    Paton he's a longtime Republican
  • 1:16:02
    operative political operative here in in
  • 1:16:04
    Washington and he pleaded guilty to
  • 1:16:06
    failing to register as a foreign agent
  • 1:16:09
    here in in federal court here in
  • 1:16:10
    Washington one of the things that's
  • 1:16:12
    interesting about this case wolf is that
  • 1:16:14
    it was referred from by the special
  • 1:16:17
    counsel robert muller to the US attorney
  • 1:16:19
    here in washington to investigate and as
  • 1:16:22
    part of his guilty plea today he
  • 1:16:23
    admitted not only to to lying to senate
  • 1:16:27
    investigators when he appeared therein
  • 1:16:29
    in january but he also said that he
  • 1:16:31
    essentially helped a couple of oligarchs
  • 1:16:35
    from ukrainian and russian oligarchs i
  • 1:16:38
    attend the inauguration of donald trump
  • 1:16:41
    by essentially buying tickets for them
  • 1:16:44
    to hide the fact that they were
  • 1:16:46
    foreigners you know which is illegal for
  • 1:16:48
    them to be able to donate to the
  • 1:16:50
    president's inaugural so he had this
  • 1:16:53
    scheme essentially where he had someone
  • 1:16:55
    else buy the tickets in order to for
  • 1:16:58
    them to be able to attend and keep in

    mind donald trump's inaugural raised a
  • 1:17:02
    hundred and seven million dollars which
  • 1:17:04
    is twice as much as any of previous
  • 1:17:07
    presidents have raised for their
  • 1:17:09
    inauguration so it is something we know
  • 1:17:11
    that the special counsel has been
  • 1:17:13
    investigating in particular their
  • 1:17:15
    connections with oligarchs who were
  • 1:17:17
    asked about this was a pro russian
  • 1:17:19
    oligarch ukrainian that this is
  • 1:17:22
    potentially consequential first of all
  • 1:17:25
    pleading guilty to not registering as a
  • 1:17:27
    foreign agent that's a felony could go
  • 1:17:28
    to jail for five years half a million
  • 1:17:30
    dollar fine for that but also illegally
  • 1:17:33
    funneling money to the inauguration
  • 1:17:35
    that's pretty significant as well
  • 1:17:39
    uh yawn well reel spinning while a while
  • 1:17:43
    that was going on I was in my head I was
  • 1:17:45
    thinking about all the different ways
  • 1:17:47
    that these payoffs take place and the
  • 1:17:49
    minor players need to be helped out and
  • 1:17:51
    how does that work you know this that
  • 1:17:54
    this go fund me this has become the the
  • 1:17:58
    way to pay people off for doing
  • 1:18:01
    something that's a great idea but we've
  • 1:18:08
    John all of him didn't call me also have
  • 1:18:11
    a go fund me I don't remember calling me
  • 1:18:13
    by no struck did struck had one McCabe
  • 1:18:16
    had one and there's huge amounts of
  • 1:18:18
    money they collected anywhere from 150
  • 1:18:21
    to 150 thousand to you know and up but
  • 1:18:26
    what yeah if you go in and you look at
  • 1:18:28
    those go fun hands this is a great doses
  • 1:18:30
    of money laundering deal well you know
  • 1:18:33
    if it's just something to consider pay
  • 1:18:36
    off a methodology for paying off just
  • 1:18:38
    cuz it's all blind John it's just a
  • 1:18:41
    thought but you know if we had like some
  • 1:18:43
    really big Russian donors no we don't to
  • 1:18:46
    the show this Boris will pay these guys
  • 1:18:56
    off what are they worth 500 bucks okay
  • 1:19:02
    Ivan how much do I have to pay to call
  • 1:19:04
    me call me hmm million five hundred
  • 1:19:10
    bucks yeah you know if if I ever start
  • 1:19:14
    up my own podcast I'm gonna do the do
  • 1:19:16
    that model this shit your donations are
  • 1:19:19
    basically just money laundering my show
  • 1:19:24
    is doing great money laundering and
  • 1:19:25
    bribes and I thank you I think
  • 1:19:27
    I thank my customers gracias friends
  • 1:19:33
    yeah yeah no you're right I was thinking
  • 1:19:37
    the same kind of thing in the same thing
  • 1:19:38
    when the struck got all this seems like
  • 1:19:40
    a huge amount of money if you look at
  • 1:19:42
    the first I can buy out John listen you
  • 1:19:46
    go to the first twenty donations you can
  • 1:19:49
    scroll back in history most of them are
  • 1:19:51
    anonymous most of them are for
  • 1:19:52
    thousand two thousand that's where the
  • 1:19:54
    big money comes in then you know word
  • 1:19:57
    gets out oh yeah and you have to be on
  • 1:19:59
    your way that always works it's kind of
  • 1:20:00
    the network effect and then you know
  • 1:20:01
    smaller people the dupes come in like oh
  • 1:20:07
    yeah the dummies and they get closer to
  • 1:20:09
    the deadline and it always kind of oh
  • 1:20:11
    look they made exactly the right amount
  • 1:20:12
    so they're always kind of fill it up at
  • 1:20:14
    the end I'm telling you this is what
  • 1:20:16
    needs to be investigated I think the
  • 1:20:20
    beauty is everything needs to be
  • 1:20:22
    investigated and that's gonna be on your
  • 1:20:29
    tombstone my friend his final request
  • 1:20:33
    was this unveiling it's a scam
  • 1:20:37
    exclamation mark I don't know I was
  • 1:20:45
    gonna say anymore but and yes it's a
  • 1:20:47
    scam GoFundMe yeah the GoFundMe well you
  • 1:20:50
    know what here's what I was gonna try
  • 1:20:52
    and say all of these money laundering
  • 1:20:54
    scams it's very hard you can look at it
  • 1:20:59
    as a scam or not a scam is some of them
  • 1:21:01
    the way the money flows is just kind of
  • 1:21:04
    it's like art you know it's the same
  • 1:21:07
    thing art is money laundering it's all
  • 1:21:09
    kind of legit even though it's money
  • 1:21:11
    laundering you know I mean it's like how
  • 1:21:14
    are you gonna prove that was money
  • 1:21:15
    laundering if you just bought something
  • 1:21:16
    and sold something and
  • 1:21:19
    well you can't and that's the rest of
  • 1:21:22
    the beauty of yes yes the problem is you
  • 1:21:25
    have to find you know you have to find
  • 1:21:26
    someone who knows is a bunch of illicit
  • 1:21:29
    their illicit cash is that this the
  • 1:21:31
    illicit cash part that is the problem
  • 1:21:33
    they got to move it through a system so
  • 1:21:35
    they can have it in their bank account
  • 1:21:37
    without having to just walk into the
  • 1:21:39
    bank and drop in a hundred thousand
  • 1:21:40
    dollars and ones right

    probably a good conduit for money
  • 1:21:50
    laundering yeah surprised me of course

    it is yes but
  • 1:21:57
    there's a lot of these things it means

    can see you know people need to launder
  • 1:22:04
    their money
  • 1:22:05
