For the entire transcript of this interview, please continue reading.

0:00:00.000,0:00:06.180
okay so this is you know this this again

0:00:03.240,0:00:07.799
it kind of stretches credulity that that

0:00:06.180,0:00:11.759
all of these people would be killed and

0:00:07.799,0:00:13.590
like this one intern in a Starbucks and

0:00:11.759,0:00:17.160
just you know these are essentially

0:00:13.590,0:00:19.020
executions so if and if you just take

0:00:17.160,0:00:21.570
all of this sort of in this context I

0:00:19.020,0:00:24.570
mean there is a lot of questions that

0:00:21.570,0:00:26.220
need to be asked about all of this stuff

0:00:24.570,0:00:28.289
and I think a lot of these cases need to

0:00:26.220,0:00:30.240
be wrote reopen and a closer look taken

0:00:28.289,0:00:31.859
at them you know Seth rich it’s no

0:00:30.240,0:00:33.809
accident some tenant Harris it’s no

0:00:31.859,0:00:35.520
accident and and I think there’s

0:00:33.809,0:00:38.940
probably at least ten cases where

0:00:35.520,0:00:42.260
they’re clearly an execution and and and

0:00:38.940,0:00:44.430
so you know why and there’s one common

0:00:42.260,0:00:47.219
commonality with these things and it’s

0:00:44.430,0:00:49.140
all back to the Clintons so I find that

0:00:47.219,0:00:51.210
highly suspicious in in my world you

0:00:49.140,0:00:53.129
know that’s quite conclusive this stuff

0:00:51.210,0:00:53.699
doesn’t happen by accident i if you look

0:00:53.129,0:00:57.059
at russia

0:00:53.699,0:00:58.500
just as a comparison everybody who’s

0:00:57.059,0:01:01.020
come out and been in a position to

0:00:58.500,0:01:04.049
really compete with with Putin and and

0:01:01.020,0:01:07.200
perhaps asked him from power and so on

0:01:04.049,0:01:09.840
has died mysteriously I general Leavitt

0:01:07.200,0:01:11.100
who was in Siberia who was independently

0:01:09.840,0:01:13.140
quite wealthy because of all the

0:01:11.100,0:01:14.880
diamonds and so on in that region had

0:01:13.140,0:01:19.439
ambitions to become president of Russia

0:01:14.880,0:01:21.420
and died in a helicopter crash yeah okay

0:01:19.439,0:01:23.909
you know and so there’s there’s fear for

0:01:21.420,0:01:25.950
guys like that that wealthy Russians

0:01:23.909,0:01:30.090
that had political ambition to died in

0:01:25.950,0:01:32.250
helicopter crashes yeah there’s there’s

0:01:30.090,0:01:33.960
a pattern there now me personally you

0:01:32.250,0:01:36.180
know it’s conclusive Putin had him

0:01:33.960,0:01:39.509
killed me he has no qualms about killing

0:01:36.180,0:01:42.360
people and is happy to do it if he deems

0:01:39.509,0:01:44.250
it necessary and I I think that’s an apt

0:01:42.360,0:01:45.990
comparison to what we can see here

0:01:44.250,0:01:47.759
there’s clearly somebody willing to kill

0:01:45.990,0:01:49.950
over this stuff clearly because all

0:01:47.759,0:01:53.100
these dead bodies with bug holes in

0:01:49.950,0:01:55.140
their head so sometimes two or three or

0:01:53.100,0:01:58.110
you know so you can’t possibly consider

0:01:55.140,0:02:00.689
it a suicide one of the suicides that

0:01:58.110,0:02:02.759
they claimed that the cause of death was

0:02:00.689,0:02:05.680
actually suicide was a boy hold in the

0:02:02.759,0:02:08.890
back of the head you know

0:02:05.680,0:02:10.660
no I it’s possible all that stuff is

0:02:08.890,0:02:13.030
responsible steps riches watch was a

0:02:10.660,0:02:15.040
Rolex if I recall correctly now I

0:02:13.030,0:02:16.570
believe that’s true and so it you know

0:02:15.040,0:02:17.980
clearly the motive was not robbery or

0:02:16.570,0:02:19.630
anything like that and if it’s an

0:02:17.980,0:02:21.190
execution we all know how this is going

0:02:19.630,0:02:23.020
to work if it’s an execution you go up

0:02:21.190,0:02:24.550
pockemon and get it get away as quickly

0:02:23.020,0:02:27.220
as possible you don’t even want to take

0:02:24.550,0:02:29.170
the five or ten seconds it would take to

0:02:27.220,0:02:30.550
pull his wallet his watch off because

0:02:29.170,0:02:31.900
somebody might spot you in that amount

0:02:30.550,0:02:33.340
of time and if you’re a pro at this sort

0:02:31.900,0:02:34.660
of stuff you don’t you don’t care about

0:02:33.340,0:02:36.070
the watch you don’t care about the

0:02:34.660,0:02:38.680
wallet you care about making the hit and

0:02:36.070,0:02:40.390
getting out safely so clearly this is

0:02:38.680,0:02:42.310
what this was this was an execution not

0:02:40.390,0:02:44.739
not anything else so there’s really no

0:02:42.310,0:02:46.090
other way to interpret it so again you

0:02:44.739,0:02:48.239
know you kind of go back to this what

0:02:46.090,0:02:51.340
appears to be a very ruthless

0:02:48.239,0:02:53.920
organization who’s faced with this

0:02:51.340,0:02:56.290
problem who organizes the solution

0:02:53.920,0:02:58.180
through John Brennan they come up with

0:02:56.290,0:03:02.110
this what I’ve described many times is

0:02:58.180,0:03:03.940
it is half assed operation that would

0:03:02.110,0:03:05.560
that it all roads lead back to John

0:03:03.940,0:03:08.050
Brennan that it appears he was the grand

0:03:05.560,0:03:10.090
mastermind for this thing now I guess

0:03:08.050,0:03:12.900
there is one factor that’s a mitigating

0:03:10.090,0:03:16.510
factor to having put together such a

0:03:12.900,0:03:18.730
infantile operation is that all this was

0:03:16.510,0:03:21.400
done all of this planning was done and

0:03:18.730,0:03:25.030
all of the pieces implemented to make it

0:03:21.400,0:03:26.890
happen before anybody knew Trump was

0:03:25.030,0:03:29.410
going to be President and with the full

0:03:26.890,0:03:31.360
expectation that this would be run and

0:03:29.410,0:03:32.769
completed with Hillary Clinton as

0:03:31.360,0:03:35.739
president which would have made it very

0:03:32.769,0:03:37.269
easy because we john james comey we note

0:03:35.739,0:03:39.700
of state because he was on a 10-year

0:03:37.269,0:03:42.010
stand test as director of the FBI which

0:03:39.700,0:03:43.959
is standard it can be fired but normally

0:03:42.010,0:03:45.640
they’re there for ten years tenth and so

0:03:43.959,0:03:47.290
he would have he would have stood still

0:03:45.640,0:03:50.079
been director of the FBI to this day

0:03:47.290,0:03:52.480
John Brennan then would have been

0:03:50.079,0:03:54.400
clearly reconfirmed to be director of

0:03:52.480,0:03:56.049
the CIA so all those people would have

0:03:54.400,0:03:57.340
remained the same and you would have had

0:03:56.049,0:03:59.620
that Peter strop would have still been

0:03:57.340,0:04:01.570
there all those corrupt people would

0:03:59.620,0:04:04.810
still be there that that in my opinion

0:04:01.570,0:04:06.459
corrupt and they would be in charge and

0:04:04.810,0:04:07.900
would have been able to manhandle how

0:04:06.459,0:04:10.329
all this would came out and what was

0:04:07.900,0:04:12.579
done and it was clearly designed to pen

0:04:10.329,0:04:14.380
as I said the Republicans slash trunk

0:04:12.579,0:04:18.799
with including with the Russians and

0:04:14.380,0:04:20.239
that’s the reason why it the these these

0:04:18.799,0:04:23.030
classified documents were leaked and

0:04:20.239,0:04:24.979
therefore he harmed an out it was the

0:04:23.030,0:04:26.800
Republicans fault and they would have

0:04:24.979,0:04:29.330
covered up the damage assessment done

0:04:26.800,0:04:31.039
after action to see you know who was

0:04:29.330,0:04:33.050
killed in China who was killed in Iran

0:04:31.039,0:04:34.460
based on the leaking of those documents

0:04:33.050,0:04:36.280
and there are other countries where

0:04:34.460,0:04:38.720
these sorts of things were going on so

0:04:36.280,0:04:40.699
you know there’s a kind of a large body

0:04:38.720,0:04:42.680
of stuff that should be looked at in a

0:04:40.699,0:04:44.360
damage assessment of what those

0:04:42.680,0:04:46.490
documents were that roll out there even

0:04:44.360,0:04:48.229
if we can get our hands on all of them

0:04:46.490,0:04:52.280
to measure it which that may or may not

0:04:48.229,0:04:54.349
be possible so now of course fast

0:04:52.280,0:04:56.180
forwarding to the present that’s why all

0:04:54.349,0:04:58.550
of this is falling apart is because it

0:04:56.180,0:05:02.000
wasn’t designed to stand up to scrutiny

0:04:58.550,0:05:05.449
like it is now and so we circle back to

0:05:02.000,0:05:07.130
Muller and now what could possibly put

0:05:05.449,0:05:10.550
the type of pressure on Muller where a

0:05:07.130,0:05:12.530
trained seasoned professional who’s done

0:05:10.550,0:05:15.110
a thousand processors and been out in

0:05:12.530,0:05:17.870
front of the cameras a zillion times and

0:05:15.110,0:05:20.180
has done prepared speeches a zillion

0:05:17.870,0:05:21.740
times what would it take what kind of

0:05:20.180,0:05:24.380
pressure would it take to bring to bear

0:05:21.740,0:05:27.020
on a guy like Muller to make him crumble

0:05:24.380,0:05:29.840
so badly and this in this presser that

0:05:27.020,0:05:31.539
he just most recently did stumbling you

0:05:29.840,0:05:34.099
know dry mouth licking his lips

0:05:31.539,0:05:35.930
rereading sentences all that stuff what

0:05:34.099,0:05:38.090
would it take to make a guy do that well

0:05:35.930,0:05:41.569
I think this is this is it this is what

0:05:38.090,0:05:44.120
fits those facts he understands if all

0:05:41.569,0:05:46.310
this is true as I’m painting it he

0:05:44.120,0:05:48.560
clearly understands the dangers of this

0:05:46.310,0:05:51.229
going forward and so what did he do I

0:05:48.560,0:05:52.550
think the deal or what he put out there

0:05:51.229,0:05:54.229
was okay

0:05:52.550,0:05:56.509
Democrats I’ll give you what you need

0:05:54.229,0:05:57.889
but I’m out of here I’m going home I’m

0:05:56.509,0:05:59.449
going back to my practice I don’t want

0:05:57.889,0:06:01.219
to testify I don’t want to come back I

0:05:59.449,0:06:04.279
don’t want to be questioned because he

0:06:01.219,0:06:06.710
knows that his methodology and what he

0:06:04.279,0:06:09.740
did and his conclusions aren’t anything

0:06:06.710,0:06:11.870
that can be justified and you’ve seen

0:06:09.740,0:06:13.840
all of these guys John Brennan coming

0:06:11.870,0:06:16.699
out and talking about how well

0:06:13.840,0:06:19.340
predicated this case was and so on and

0:06:16.699,0:06:21.139
that there were these documents and it

0:06:19.340,0:06:23.330
was well predicated and so we were only

0:06:21.139,0:06:25.590
doing due diligence moving forward the

0:06:23.330,0:06:27.090
way any responsible person would

0:06:25.590,0:06:29.400
that is their only defense what else

0:06:27.090,0:06:31.050
could you say the only two ways they

0:06:29.400,0:06:33.780
have to defend themselves at this point

0:06:31.050,0:06:35.370
is that saying that well you know it

0:06:33.780,0:06:37.080
seemed like the right thing to do at the

0:06:35.370,0:06:41.790
time because we had this the system this

0:06:37.080,0:06:44.730
and pursue the impeachment of President

0:06:41.790,0:06:47.700
Trump and at everybody let me just say

0:06:44.730,0:06:50.520
you know I’m near DC everybody here in

0:06:47.700,0:06:53.070
DC knows what’s coming everybody all the

0:06:50.520,0:06:55.470
Democrats all of the never Trump or

0:06:53.070,0:06:58.140
Republicans the Rhinos all of the Trump

0:06:55.470,0:07:00.090
supporters the White House everybody

0:06:58.140,0:07:03.360
here knows what’s coming anyone who’s in

0:07:00.090,0:07:04.800
the know who’s involved understands

0:07:03.360,0:07:07.950
what’s coming and I include the

0:07:04.800,0:07:10.230
precedent we all know what’s coming this

0:07:07.950,0:07:12.570
thing is falling apart at the seams and

0:07:10.230,0:07:13.920
that’s why you see everybody pointing

0:07:12.570,0:07:16.140
their fingers at each other and why you

0:07:13.920,0:07:18.030
see the breakdown between Comey and

0:07:16.140,0:07:19.830
Brennan now let me point out another

0:07:18.030,0:07:22.110
thing that Brennan has done what Brennan

0:07:19.830,0:07:24.990
has done is he’s pulled clapper under

0:07:22.110,0:07:26.580
his wing and I’ve often said to you that

0:07:24.990,0:07:29.250
the weak link and all of that at the

0:07:26.580,0:07:32.280
senior level it’s clapper if I were AG

0:07:29.250,0:07:34.200
bar the first guy I would go sit down at

0:07:32.280,0:07:36.240
a desk put a light in his eyes and say

0:07:34.200,0:07:38.970
dude somebody’s going to jail or this is

0:07:36.240,0:07:40.260
it you and just go ahead and tell me the

0:07:38.970,0:07:42.030
whole story and we’ll make an immunity

0:07:40.260,0:07:44.070
case for a the best one we can give me

0:07:42.030,0:07:46.740
the old story and I think James clapper

0:07:44.070,0:07:48.510
is gonna fold in a heartbeat so he’s the

0:07:46.740,0:07:51.330
weak link I think John Brennan agrees

0:07:48.510,0:07:54.360
he’s the weakly he’s the he’s at that

0:07:51.330,0:07:55.620
level where he knows everything and can

0:07:54.360,0:07:57.450
put all these guys in jail and that’s

0:07:55.620,0:07:59.040
why you’ve seen John Brennan be very

0:07:57.450,0:08:01.770
protective of James clapper and say oh

0:07:59.040,0:08:03.630
no it wasn’t him it was coming Comey did

0:08:01.770,0:08:04.500
all this and you’ve seen coaming

0:08:03.630,0:08:07.320
probably Comey

0:08:04.500,0:08:09.030
leaked these these email exchanges where

0:08:07.320,0:08:10.770
John Brennan’s come none and out include

0:08:09.030,0:08:14.130
the steel dossier where John Brennan is

0:08:10.770,0:08:15.360
going oh I I it wasn’t me it was Kony

0:08:14.130,0:08:16.830
so this is where all this

0:08:15.360,0:08:18.240
finger-pointing is is because they’re

0:08:16.830,0:08:20.400
laying the groundwork as best they can

0:08:18.240,0:08:23.220
to defend themselves and that’s why

0:08:20.400,0:08:26.250
you’ve got people Democrats who were not

0:08:23.220,0:08:28.800
involved in all of this like probably

0:08:26.250,0:08:30.210
Nancy Pelosi not that Nancy Pelosi

0:08:28.800,0:08:32.520
hasn’t done other things on her own but

0:08:30.210,0:08:34.920
Nancy Pelosi was always a speaker kind

0:08:32.520,0:08:35.599
of an independent power base if you will

0:08:34.920,0:08:38.870
and

0:08:35.599,0:08:40.969
at her own power base and in contacts

0:08:38.870,0:08:42.560
and so on and was not like bought and

0:08:40.969,0:08:44.240
paid for by the Clintons and so on so

0:08:42.560,0:08:47.630
she was independent and now what do you

0:08:44.240,0:08:49.730
see of her doing she is fighting the

0:08:47.630,0:08:51.860
impeachment process for Trump tooth and

0:08:49.730,0:08:54.139
nails because she sees where it’s going

0:08:51.860,0:08:56.000
and she’s now looking at it from her

0:08:54.139,0:08:57.649
perspective and that is losing the

0:08:56.000,0:08:59.810
majority in the house in this next

0:08:57.649,0:09:01.970
coming election and traditionally the on

0:08:59.810,0:09:04.009
year the the election cycle where the

0:09:01.970,0:09:06.589
president is running is always good for

0:09:04.009,0:09:07.759
the president’s party so she’s facing an

0:09:06.589,0:09:10.670
uphill battle anyway

0:09:07.759,0:09:12.500
and now as all this stuff starts to come

0:09:10.670,0:09:14.389
out and she’s seen what bars doing with

0:09:12.500,0:09:15.980
this Attorney General bar he’s doing

0:09:14.389,0:09:17.750
with all of this and the investigations

0:09:15.980,0:09:21.470
that are taking place and there’s still

0:09:17.750,0:09:22.910
investigations ongoing of anthing

0:09:21.470,0:09:24.920
leaders laptop and all those classified

0:09:22.910,0:09:27.100
documents so there’s a lot of stuff

0:09:24.920,0:09:31.430
that’s going to come out over the next

0:09:27.100,0:09:32.990
you know say year and so there’s going

0:09:31.430,0:09:34.399
to be a steady stream of all this coming

0:09:32.990,0:09:36.920
out and and the president has already

0:09:34.399,0:09:39.350
said that he’s anxious to declassify a

0:09:36.920,0:09:41.720
lot of this stuff as all of this stuff

0:09:39.350,0:09:43.850
gets Declassified and examined in it and

0:09:41.720,0:09:45.560
you go back and look at the FISA warrant

0:09:43.850,0:09:47.990
that the fighting the FISA requests that

0:09:45.560,0:09:50.839
that provided the warrant all of that

0:09:47.990,0:09:53.720
stuff was they those guys who signed

0:09:50.839,0:09:56.959
that testified that what was contained

0:09:53.720,0:09:58.639
in that they believed to be true they

0:09:56.959,0:10:00.769
already knew was false because they knew

0:09:58.639,0:10:03.800
the steel dossier was false so there’s

0:10:00.769,0:10:06.079
there’s there’s regulations and laws

0:10:03.800,0:10:07.699
broken when you do things like that so

0:10:06.079,0:10:10.279
all of these guys are faced with

0:10:07.699,0:10:13.430
problems everything like I said everyone

0:10:10.279,0:10:15.620
here in DC who’s involved in any way

0:10:13.430,0:10:18.470
shape or form we all know what’s coming

0:10:15.620,0:10:22.670
it’s this this is all going to blow up

0:10:18.470,0:10:24.709
in their face so it’s it’s it’s a given

0:10:22.670,0:10:26.449
that this is going to blow up and now

0:10:24.709,0:10:29.240
what you’re having is mitigation of the

0:10:26.449,0:10:33.470
problem and like I said the best defense

0:10:29.240,0:10:35.120
that the Democrats have is to concur it

0:10:33.470,0:10:38.300
to these things blowing up in their face

0:10:35.120,0:10:40.790
try to impeach Trump that’s their only

0:10:38.300,0:10:42.560
defense but now like I said this that

0:10:40.790,0:10:43.790
also is going to backfire because

0:10:42.560,0:10:45.380
everyone’s going to know it’s an act of

0:10:43.790,0:10:47.520
desperation and that’s why you have

0:10:45.380,0:10:50.880
Nancy Pelosi out there fighting it

0:10:47.520,0:10:55.470
saying look her basic stance is this you

0:10:50.880,0:10:58.290
bring me conclusive proof that Trump did

0:10:55.470,0:11:01.320
something blatantly illegal that we can

0:10:58.290,0:11:04.500
prove to the standard that I can take it

0:11:01.320,0:11:06.660
to the Senate Republicans and convince

0:11:04.500,0:11:07.740
them to impeach you meet that standard

0:11:06.660,0:11:09.360
I’m with you

0:11:07.740,0:11:11.970
you don’t meet that standard I’m again

0:11:09.360,0:11:13.680
yet so that’s that’s her basic stance

0:11:11.970,0:11:15.510
which we all know what that means that

0:11:13.680,0:11:17.610
means she’s against the impeachment and

0:11:15.510,0:11:19.620
and she’s put a standard there that we

0:11:17.610,0:11:21.720
know that nobody can meet because it

0:11:19.620,0:11:22.920
didn’t it didn’t happen if it had

0:11:21.720,0:11:24.840
happened Muller would have found it

0:11:22.920,0:11:27.240
because he was scraping the barrel to

0:11:24.840,0:11:28.980
get whatever he could get and his his

0:11:27.240,0:11:30.420
methodology he’s probably gonna get him

0:11:28.980,0:11:32.970
in a lot of trouble I think all of this

0:11:30.420,0:11:36.750
stuff Muller was so nervous and under so

0:11:32.970,0:11:38.520
much pressure to give Democrats a peg to

0:11:36.750,0:11:40.500
hang their hat on to move forward the

0:11:38.520,0:11:41.760
impeachment that he was dying because he

0:11:40.500,0:11:47.070
knew he was going to go down in flames

0:11:41.760,0:11:49.320
he had to make the best choice out of

0:11:47.070,0:11:51.870
all of the horrible options that he had

0:11:49.320,0:11:54.030
and that was what he selected and you

0:11:51.870,0:11:55.530
see that tension play out on him watch

0:11:54.030,0:11:57.990
him again I mean I would even say turn

0:11:55.530,0:11:59.730
off turn on for the volume or or turn it

0:11:57.990,0:12:02.460
down or ignore most of what he says

0:11:59.730,0:12:04.470
other than when he stutters and stumbles

0:12:02.460,0:12:08.070
and repeats his words and so on and just

0:12:04.470,0:12:10.430
watch him and there’s a man who’s very

0:12:08.070,0:12:12.840
unhappy under a lot of pressure you just

0:12:10.430,0:12:14.790
there I don’t see again another way to

0:12:12.840,0:12:16.500
really interpret it unless he’s using

0:12:14.790,0:12:18.840
drugs I definitely get the feeling that

0:12:16.500,0:12:20.490
the food in a couple of US prisons is

0:12:18.840,0:12:23.730
about to get a lot better I definitely

0:12:20.490,0:12:25.890
get that feeling yes it’ll be

0:12:23.730,0:12:29.190
interesting to see how this goes now I I

0:12:25.890,0:12:31.440
put even former FBI FBI director and DOJ

0:12:29.190,0:12:33.210
people in jail is is an interesting

0:12:31.440,0:12:35.910
concept and you have people like Muller

0:12:33.210,0:12:38.460
for example who’s in his mid-70s and all

0:12:35.910,0:12:41.880
of these guys are you know mid to late

0:12:38.460,0:12:43.470
60s or 70s and you know a 10-year

0:12:41.880,0:12:45.810
sentence is life sentence basically for

0:12:43.470,0:12:48.480
those guys and I don’t think if they’re

0:12:45.810,0:12:50.010
in any sort of serious penitentiary I

0:12:48.480,0:12:52.410
mean life is not going to be happy for

0:12:50.010,0:12:55.020
them and the prisoners in those sorts of

0:12:52.410,0:12:56.150
places would consider them a trophy so I

0:12:55.020,0:12:58.680
think they’d be killed right away

0:12:56.150,0:12:59.280
personally may be wrong about that not a

0:12:58.680,0:13:01.680
grand ex

0:12:59.280,0:13:04.950
prisons so I think what you’d see is

0:13:01.680,0:13:08.850
then put into some sort of home arrest

0:13:04.950,0:13:10.470
or daytime you check into jail than go

0:13:08.850,0:13:12.900
home at night sort of situation that

0:13:10.470,0:13:15.150
they do have programs of that nature I

0:13:12.900,0:13:19.290
think probably what you’d see is

0:13:15.150,0:13:23.790
something along those lines the I think

0:13:19.290,0:13:25.860
the real danger for this Democrats is if

0:13:23.790,0:13:30.720
it goes too far as getting to Hillary

0:13:25.860,0:13:33.360
Clinton Hillary Clinton is I I think we

0:13:30.720,0:13:35.520
all know how that a person mentality is

0:13:33.360,0:13:37.230
going to be and then if it’s it’s if I’m

0:13:35.520,0:13:40.200
going down you’re coming with me

0:13:37.230,0:13:42.660
and if she starts to get targeted she’s

0:13:40.200,0:13:44.190
going to start to finger Obama and Obama

0:13:42.660,0:13:46.440
senior people any of those that let them

0:13:44.190,0:13:52.470
talk and that must element that if it

0:13:46.440,0:13:54.240
does happen it must happen fortunately I

0:13:52.470,0:13:56.760
hope so because I think what we have is

0:13:54.240,0:13:59.790
a complete culture of corruption on the

0:13:56.760,0:14:01.740
Democratic side and we have a culture of

0:13:59.790,0:14:05.400
ineptitude on the Republican side the

0:14:01.740,0:14:09.290
never Trump or I know the Bush faction

0:14:05.400,0:14:11.640
that Ryan faction all of those guys who

0:14:09.290,0:14:13.020
essentially do nothing they just let

0:14:11.640,0:14:16.410
this go along to get along

0:14:13.020,0:14:18.000
attitude prevail and the the evil that

0:14:16.410,0:14:19.860
we see coming out of the Democratic side

0:14:18.000,0:14:21.750
they don’t they don’t fight anymore they

0:14:19.860,0:14:23.760
don’t view that as a problem they all

0:14:21.750,0:14:26.760
view themselves as sort of different

0:14:23.760,0:14:28.620
sides of the same coin perhaps but

0:14:26.760,0:14:30.900
certainly part of the elite out of

0:14:28.620,0:14:33.089
Washington DC so they don’t you know

0:14:30.900,0:14:36.240
they don’t attack each other in that way

0:14:33.089,0:14:38.220
and it’s only with the resurgence of the

0:14:36.240,0:14:41.310
conservative movement that got Trump

0:14:38.220,0:14:43.620
elected do we see that have any chance

0:14:41.310,0:14:45.270
of playing out and any chance of getting

0:14:43.620,0:14:47.550
rid of all of this corruption out of DC

0:14:45.270,0:14:49.380
or draining the swamp as’ Trump likes to

0:14:47.550,0:14:50.610
say now there’s there is a problem out

0:14:49.380,0:14:52.500
of all of that too and I think we’ve

0:14:50.610,0:14:54.180
just now come to the basically the

0:14:52.500,0:14:55.680
two-year mark for president Trump where

0:14:54.180,0:14:58.110
he’s really started to figure stuff out

0:14:55.680,0:15:00.089
and he got rid of sessions and brought

0:14:58.110,0:15:02.430
in a real to live honest-to-god AG

0:15:00.089,0:15:04.530
attorney general bar who could who could

0:15:02.430,0:15:06.620
actually do the job and you’ve started

0:15:04.530,0:15:09.030
to see a couple people removed out of

0:15:06.620,0:15:11.040
the White House staff the National

0:15:09.030,0:15:12.780
Security Council staff that were key

0:15:11.040,0:15:15.300
individuals that were

0:15:12.780,0:15:17.040
100% never trumple’s you’re starting to

0:15:15.300,0:15:19.710
see a few of those people moved out and

0:15:17.040,0:15:21.690
I guarantee you again this is something

0:15:19.710,0:15:22.530
that’s got it’s the main circuit here in

0:15:21.690,0:15:24.810
the DC area

0:15:22.530,0:15:27.090
more of those people are going to be

0:15:24.810,0:15:29.970
removed soon and Trump has figured out

0:15:27.090,0:15:32.220
that his base which is the Christian

0:15:29.970,0:15:33.690
conservative conservative base are his

0:15:32.220,0:15:36.770
only supporters those are the only

0:15:33.690,0:15:39.420
people that really want to help him and

0:15:36.770,0:15:40.950
now maybe to his credit I think he

0:15:39.420,0:15:43.320
reached out and he brought in Democrats

0:15:40.950,0:15:45.120
he brought in never Trump hers and

0:15:43.320,0:15:47.130
didn’t really bring in any of the

0:15:45.120,0:15:48.540
Conservatives I think he hoped that he

0:15:47.130,0:15:50.700
could reach out to these people and win

0:15:48.540,0:15:52.110
them over if they could just see that he

0:15:50.700,0:15:55.230
was actually trying to do the work of

0:15:52.110,0:15:56.880
the people here but that’s naive on his

0:15:55.230,0:15:58.500
part it doesn’t work that way it’ll

0:15:56.880,0:15:59.520
never work that way these guys the press

0:15:58.500,0:16:02.100
will never like him

0:15:59.520,0:16:03.540
they mainstream Republican Party will

0:16:02.100,0:16:06.360
never liked him the Democrats will never

0:16:03.540,0:16:08.040
not hate him and so there’s just it’s

0:16:06.360,0:16:10.110
just the system here and he’s only got

0:16:08.040,0:16:12.000
really one constituency and that’s the

0:16:10.110,0:16:14.400
people and the conservatives which he

0:16:12.000,0:16:17.130
hired not now I’m those of my circles

0:16:14.400,0:16:19.860
here I know tons of those people and he

0:16:17.130,0:16:21.900
just didn’t pick them to hire and a lot

0:16:19.860,0:16:23.850
of them that did come on his staff were

0:16:21.900,0:16:26.820
picked off the few that did make it to

0:16:23.850,0:16:29.100
staff were picked off for example you

0:16:26.820,0:16:31.710
know Fred flight’s who’s the chief of

0:16:29.100,0:16:33.210
staff for John Bolton there’s a lot of

0:16:31.710,0:16:33.930
rumors out there now that John Bolton is

0:16:33.210,0:16:35.610
in trouble too

0:16:33.930,0:16:37.200
John Bolton is good competent guy I

0:16:35.610,0:16:39.390
personally would hate to see him go

0:16:37.200,0:16:41.550
maybe he could be replaced by somebody

0:16:39.390,0:16:43.110
as good or better but those are the type

0:16:41.550,0:16:45.270
of guys that have been under attack all

0:16:43.110,0:16:48.060
along here because of who Trump has

0:16:45.270,0:16:49.800
hired now back him back to history he’s

0:16:48.060,0:16:51.330
making comparisons Jimmy Carter but

0:16:49.800,0:16:53.040
through the same process it’s kind of a

0:16:51.330,0:16:55.080
famous little case with in intelligence

0:16:53.040,0:16:56.460
circles Jimmy Carter for his first two

0:16:55.080,0:16:58.110
years of his presidency he was only

0:16:56.460,0:17:00.060
there for years but first years of his

0:16:58.110,0:17:02.760
presidency had a couple saw it means

0:17:00.060,0:17:05.520
with then I had of the USSR which is

0:17:02.760,0:17:06.900
president and he would meet with this

0:17:05.520,0:17:08.220
guy and afterwards we were giving an

0:17:06.900,0:17:09.990
intelligence saying that I lied to you

0:17:08.220,0:17:11.400
man he’s he told you this this is the

0:17:09.990,0:17:14.160
truth he told you this this is the truth

0:17:11.400,0:17:15.180
and and Jimmy Carter’s good no no no no

0:17:14.160,0:17:16.770
I’m mad with him I looked at me in the

0:17:15.180,0:17:18.720
eye he told me the case I believed him

0:17:16.770,0:17:20.970
and so after two years he finally

0:17:18.720,0:17:23.880
figures out the proof piled up after two

0:17:20.970,0:17:24.560
years he goes oh my god Brezhnev lied to

0:17:23.880,0:17:26.720
me you know

0:17:24.560,0:17:28.100
and in intelligence circles that was

0:17:26.720,0:17:28.910
very funny because it was like dude

0:17:28.100,0:17:32.180
where you been

0:17:28.910,0:17:34.700
what do you think they do and add so it

0:17:32.180,0:17:36.620
it took in those two years to finally

0:17:34.700,0:17:38.060
get a handle on the job well we all go

0:17:36.620,0:17:38.810
into new jobs it takes a while to get a

0:17:38.060,0:17:41.000
handle on it

0:17:38.810,0:17:42.860
president of the United States is a big

0:17:41.000,0:17:45.050
job and it takes two years to get a

0:17:42.860,0:17:47.240
handle on it and unless maybe you’ve

0:17:45.050,0:17:49.310
been the VP or something so Trump being

0:17:47.240,0:17:51.500
an outsider like Jimmy Carter was came

0:17:49.310,0:17:53.030
in and it took him these two years to

0:17:51.500,0:17:54.590
get his act together and figure all this

0:17:53.030,0:17:56.660
stuff out and so I think you’re

0:17:54.590,0:18:00.050
beginning now to see the change in

0:17:56.660,0:18:02.720
Trump’s hiring practices if you will of

0:18:00.050,0:18:04.040
who he’s willing to bring in and who

0:18:02.720,0:18:07.190
he’s looking at for it and I think

0:18:04.040,0:18:09.580
you’re going to begin to see beyond say

0:18:07.190,0:18:12.160
the Federalist Society and judges

0:18:09.580,0:18:14.090
Trump’s start to move to pick up

0:18:12.160,0:18:16.190
conservatives that he can then bring

0:18:14.090,0:18:17.540
into the fall into these positions who

0:18:16.190,0:18:19.130
are his natural base those are the

0:18:17.540,0:18:21.710
people that actually support him and his

0:18:19.130,0:18:23.960
goals which everyone else does not

0:18:21.710,0:18:25.670
support him or his goals so I think he’s

0:18:23.960,0:18:27.890
now figured that out and I think we’re

0:18:25.670,0:18:30.530
seeing that evolve I think over the next

0:18:27.890,0:18:32.150
again 12 months you’ll see that evolve I

0:18:30.530,0:18:33.530
think over the next 12 months you’re

0:18:32.150,0:18:35.540
gonna see all this thing fall into

0:18:33.530,0:18:36.680
pieces on the part of the Democrats and

0:18:35.540,0:18:38.390
a lot of these people end up going to

0:18:36.680,0:18:38.990
jail which those two things are

0:18:38.390,0:18:40.490
interrelated

0:18:38.990,0:18:41.930
you start removing people and sending

0:18:40.490,0:18:43.610
them to jail you got to replace them and

0:18:41.930,0:18:45.920
bring in new people so I think those two

0:18:43.610,0:18:48.560
things will go hand in glove my opinion

0:18:45.920,0:18:50.870
at this point I don’t have insight track

0:18:48.560,0:18:52.430
into the Trump thinking on this but I

0:18:50.870,0:18:56.000
believe that that’s purposeful on his

0:18:52.430,0:18:57.650
part he does understand moving personnel

0:18:56.000,0:18:59.090
around and so on so I I think he

0:18:57.650,0:19:01.430
understands there’s good times to do it

0:18:59.090,0:19:03.110
and bad times to do it and III think

0:19:01.430,0:19:06.920
there’s some purpose to all of that as

0:19:03.110,0:19:08.960
we see it unfold and I think the this

0:19:06.920,0:19:11.780
this impeachment stuff is just going to

0:19:08.960,0:19:14.210
absolutely bite him in the rear and like

0:19:11.780,0:19:16.280
oddly enough I I agree with Nancy Pelosi

0:19:14.210,0:19:18.080
precisely on this one that this is this

0:19:16.280,0:19:19.700
is just foolishness it’s non-starter

0:19:18.080,0:19:21.350
it’s not going to work and it’s going to

0:19:19.700,0:19:24.080
be counterproductive and I think Nancy

0:19:21.350,0:19:26.090
Pelosi who would would be one of the

0:19:24.080,0:19:28.820
people to suffer most because she would

0:19:26.090,0:19:30.410
lose her majority speaker position her

0:19:28.820,0:19:33.050
speaking position as the majority of the

0:19:30.410,0:19:35.240
leader in the house she’s the one that

0:19:33.050,0:19:37.700
would get a big you know demotion if you

0:19:35.240,0:19:40.309
don’t become minority speak

0:19:37.700,0:19:41.990
had a minority in the house this seems

0:19:40.309,0:19:43.610
like so it seems a good place to stop

0:19:41.990,0:19:45.769
we’re coming up on some heavy time here

0:19:43.610,0:19:47.750
so Brad thank you very much this was

0:19:45.769,0:19:49.370
really good it’s gonna take multiple

0:19:47.750,0:19:51.380
listings to get everything out of it

0:19:49.370,0:19:55.130
that wasn’t it which is the way it ought

0:19:51.380,0:19:58.399
to be let’s do this again soon as things

0:19:55.130,0:19:59.899
advance yes and it’s advancing at a

0:19:58.399,0:20:02.950
furious pace now so I think we’re gonna

0:19:59.899,0:20:02.950
have plenty of grist for the mill

0:20:31.950,0:20:35.170
