Trump accuses Mueller’s team of “illegally leaking” to media
Trump accuses Mueller’s team of “illegally leaking” to media Trump accuses Mueller’s team of “illegally leaking” to mediaEveryone I’m Elaine quijano. Thank you for joining us. President Trump is taking aim at the special counsel’s team on Twitter. The president accused those who worked with Robert Mueller of dishonesty saying they are quote illegally leaking information to about the Russia investigation. That comment comes after some within the special counsel’s office were reportedly unhappy with how the Attorney General handle their finding. They said the information uncovered was more damaging than William Barr made of late last month bar issued. A summary of the report is in President Trump did not collude with Russia during the 2016 campaign and that Mueller made no determination whether Justice was obstructed. The justice department says working on redaction, so the report can be released. However, house Democrats voted last week to authorize a subpoena for an unproductive version there now poised to issue with one ready. Our check on the Sunday morning show starts with what what key Democratic lawmaker hopes to see in the mall of report next week. But the important thing is not to we get it this week or next week. The important thing is, what do we get we’re demanding and we have a right to Congress – has the right to the entire Report with no redaction whatsoever. I don’t regret calling out this. President for what I consider deeply ethical and improper conduct a bit – and I think the moment that we start to think that that we should back away from exposing this kind of malfeasance and Corruption is a dangerous point, maybe more damaging in the bar summary that I Do share that? What is the plan to get out of this current crisis? Accepting people that we send the number to the northern triangle countries have to prevent their own people from leaving and number three in. This is one we don’t get a chance to talk about. The Congress must at the laws, are what illegal immigrants and Congress has to chase those laws change those lost Jerry Nadler is no authorized to issue a subpoena for the unredacted Mueller report. However, the Democrat says he won’t do so immediately with a sense of the timeline that we might be looking at here very high likelihood that we’re going to see this report within the next week. Possibly the end of this week would be probably the earliest point where we go where we will see it. This will be a redacted version of the report. You know a lot of these demons go to the different evidence. That’S within this report that is going to be coming from grand juries, where you might have some things in there. That would normally be redacted and would be prevented from from seeing the public eye, and I think that that’s going a possibly a sticking point for that. May end up was seeing the subpoena go forward. If the house Democrats feel that they’re not getting enough information and end whether they want to see some of these things that are going to be redacted, William Barr is expected to testify before Congress. Twice this week on matters related to the budget will likely be asked about the Mueller report. Should we expect him to engage on those questions, please out, because absolutely to your point, I think he will get a lot of questions that are unrelated to the issues that he’s actually testifying about. This is one of those situations, though, where I think you know a lot of this is a wait-and-see game. We we saw as you, as you noted, the time in Washington Post reports based on conversations with people who are part of Mueller’s team, feeling that barkcamp down too much, particularly on the obstruction side of things in ways that they did not particularly like. But the fact is it’s out of there now it’s now, it’s going to be something: that’s tough little football. Ultimately, though, that’s a that’s going to be something that we’re going to see a lot of questions about over the coming months. Even if Democrats want to shift talking about other things going into 20/20 other priorities that they’re going to have in the country, the fact is that a significant portion of their base and of the American people still have a lot of questions about this investigation. Would it find what it found and I and how it was conducted tax returns last week using a little-known provision of the tax code to do so that your child’s personal lawyer asserted Friday? His client has a right to keep his taxes private. What kind of legal battle can we expect Socrative wanted to get their hands on the present tax returns for quite a while? It’S been a subject, of course, if significant debate ever since he entered the race for the presidency, and I think that you’re going to see this court battle take on a particularly aggressive in the in the coming months, because the president’s really going to stick to his Guns and say that he has thought of the right as a private citizen to not disclose this Democrats are going to use every tool at their disposal to try to make him by John. This point Administration, Friday over the president’s emergency declaration to force funding for border wall. The lawsuit does not mention mr. Trump as a defendant, but instead members of his cabinet. What is the strategy here been on the part of the Democrat national sport of emergency act? That’S been on the books, since the 70s is actually one that really hasn’t been put through the kind of legal questioning that it maybe ought to regarding the amount of power that it gives the president to assert it’s kind of privilege into a into advanced things. I mean that we have National emergencies on all sorts of manner of things that I think people need surprised to it to learn about just giving the way that this power has been used in the past, the courts and never really given us. The kind of resolution deserve about the limits of this power and what, if any, there are – and this is a way to try to get that question – answered a different direction Ron to good man, but we’re going in a tub for direction. We want to go in a tougher Direction, so what do we know about the new options being explored explored when it when it comes to the heading up ice? It’S obviously been an agency that has become one of significant one of significant controversy in the way that has been used under President Trump. You even have some prominent Democrats calling for the total nation of ice, but to be honest it to me, this is the sort of absent the larger conversation that we ought to be having about the nature of the Southern border and how the migrants, who are coming Across have changed significantly over the years are obviously familiar with the controversies of the past, where you had migrant workers coming across, usually in a single adult males looking to work and to send money back home, that’s changed dramatically in the past year-and-a-half a to situation now, Where you have family units coming across in greater and greater number with all sorts of different requirements, especially with young children that are in place now to the degree to which that border patrol really can’t handle the kind of wave of migrants that they’ve seen lacrosse. In recent months, this is going to take a an overall solution that requires the president and the Congress to work together, as Mick Mulvaney was saying in in the clip that you showed earlier, and that’s just not going to happen on an issue where there is such Controversy and where both parties are so at odds tissue, as he will know, Philippe from February the national reporting of 20,000 job Edition, as we get ready for 2020. Should cannabis be talking more about the economy, verses that people are focusing on today when it comes to issues like immigration and also culture War battles in and disagreements about everything under the sun really is divorced from the experience of most American workers who have seen their Wages go up after longtime stagnant wages, who seen no additional jobs and and hiring take place within their communities. You would expect any normal political environment for the economy to be the focus particularly of the White House of you know, bolstering their claims of being able to Mill Run the economy in a very effective Manner, and the fact is that the name of the president, you Have routinely pulls higher on on the economy than he does on any other subject, but that’s not what we’re talking about, because it’s not what the president wants to talk about, and it’s not what his opponent want to talk about either normal political environment. As you pointed out at all this past week, President Trump said he quote: never plan to force a vote to repeal the bill prior to 20/20. However, that comment came after he said. Legislation was already underway to do so. So what does this all indicate about? How health care is going to factor into the presidential election Embraces? The aims of were perhaps supports the idea of of medicare-for-all in all likelihood or some other in a sort of broad solution to the healthcare. Was that continue to be a problem for many Americans on the on the side of the president? I obviously very much wants to campaign on some kind of plan, but I think that he really has a problem within his own party on this, because republicans in Congress really despite the availability of all sorts of ideas out, there have never been able to coalesce around What they were, and in terms of a healthcare plan, one that they can support and advocate for on the campaign Trail Republicans always feel awkward. When talking about this issue, they don’t feel that it’s their own turf in until they can coalesce around something that they and the president can agree on. It’S going to be tough for them to argue on health care that they can be trusted in that the American people can see their cost on this very burdensome issue go down.
