Even gotten gotten there. Pam Bondi is now Bam Bam burnt argument. No no no is tissue can I. Can I get some help up. Pam Bondi home the Lord. I could somehow preach Pam Bondi says the JOE I. I bragged about fire in the prosecutor because he was prosecuting Peres. Ma and it was all sort of this insight. Hey Rupert Burke Murdoch's Wall Street Journal called that Afars months ago. Every major newspaper called force months ago we're really Meiningen demanded. The removal of the corrupt prosecutor. The Western world demanded the removal of the prosecutor. The Obama Administration Tall Joe Biden to go over there and remove the prosecutor securer. Oh wait one more thing Pam Bondi just one more thing and for the trump team and for all you stupid people out there are actually. You're not stupid. You think we're all stupid you think. Donald Trump supporters are all stupid. You think conservatives are stupid like Donald Trump who thinks southerners are stupid repaired. We're not we're not. You have the Ukrainians who said themselves that the prosecutor her head stopped investigating Barez my at that time. It was one of the complaints on. Why Willie this guy was was in the tank? You know what you know what I need. I like James Brown. I've done my thing with the blanket. I gotTA GOTTA walk off stage. I've thought often come. This is all I can handle this kid. Since yesterday. I serious these people volt lowered the collective to not only of America the foot of the Western world by at least twenty four points re our. They spoke them this in the same way. You don't WanNa follow James Brown onstage. Don't WanNa follow that rant from Joe Scarborough here. I am left with that that task this morning you can do it. I would added into Jay sekulow argument to the extent that they even address. This defense team the bombshell from John. Bolton's book it came from Dershowitz saying that that was not impeachable double but it also came from J Seco- saying that's just an allegation in a book. It's not evidence so let's get your metaphor again. You can play it into evidence. But in spite calling John Bolton as a witness but the White House is blocked them and John Bolton has said he would testify so one more dead body in that irony wilderness. This that you were describing a few minutes ago but let's go back to Pam Bondi the job as you said of going after Joe Biden and his son Hunter fell to the former Florida attorney general. What's listened to her case when the house managers gave their presentation when they submitted their brief? They repeatedly referenced Hunter. Hunter Biden embarrassment when the house managers gave their presentation when they submitted their brief they. Repeatedly referenced Hunter Hunter Biden embarrassment. They spoke to you for over twenty one hours and they referenced Biden or Barista over four hundred times and when they gave these presentations they said there was nothing. Nothing nothing to see it was a sham. This is fiction. The reason they needed to do that. What is because they're here saying that? The president must be impeached and removed from office for for raising a concern. And that's why we have to talk about this today. Hunter Biden had no experience in natural gas no experience in the energy sector no experience with Ukrainian regulatory affairs. As far as we know he doesn't speak Ukrainian so so naturally the media has asked questions about his board membership. Why was Hunter Biden on this board? In response to those attacks from from Pam Bondi the Biden campaign released a statement that reads in part. We didn't realize Breitbart was expanding into Ted talk knockoffs here on planet Earth the conspiracy the theory that Bondi repeated has been conclusively refuted the diplomat that trump himself appointed to lead his Ukraine policy has blasted it as self serving and not credible well. Joe Biden was instrumental to a bipartisan. An international anti-corruption victory. It's no surprise that such a thing is anathema to president. Trump's Rick Wilson. The former prosecutor let Sankoh who is the prosecutor at the time said quote Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws. At least as of now We do not see any wrongdoing but the list goes on as Joe said the IMF the EU others were worried about what that particular prosecutor. This wasn't a Joe Biden directive active. He was a notoriously corrupt prosecutor. You know and it loops back by the way into the whole trump world of Paul manafort and everything else. This was part of to the previous regime. And the fact is a universal demand to push him. However this is also the one of the great master Pretoria Fantasies of the trump campaign? Right now is that they're gonNA make Hunter Biden a major issue in the twenty twenty election and Pam Bondi was out there playing to one audience and that was Fox and trump. That's all they cared about. That's all they were trying to accomplish and she goes way back with Donald Trump. She left office under a cloud when she when she left the officer Attorney General in Florida because she had taken basically a twenty five thousand dollar bribe from trump to cover up his trump university scandal and drop the lawsuit in Florida so they go way back. He likes that kind of one millimeter deep shallow presentation and she she delivered in spades in that regard but it was a it was a laughable example of how she was reading from the trump script that requires you to suspend logic the ability to read a time line and a calendar and and the ability to look at the global dislike for this guy who was a part of the cancer of corruption Ukraine as opposed to the people that replaced him. We're trying to clean it up all right Ken. Starr the independent counsel at former president. Clinton's impeachment trial tried to On ironically ironically warn of the dangers of impeaching president significantly in this particular juncture in America's because history the Senate is being called to sit as the High Court of impeachment all too frequently Huntley and deed. We're living in what I think can aptly be described as the age of impeachment like war are impeachment is hell or at least presidential impeachment is how those us who lived through the Clinton impeachment including members of this body. Full well understand that. A presidential impeachment is tantamount to domestic where I'll be thankfully protected by our beloved First Amendment a war of words in a war of ideas But it's filled with acrimony and it divides the country like nothing else been with is this is Studi Collins would saying isn't isn't it rich This is a man after all who ooh and I know it's a family show but hopefully the kids are still asleep. Your kids are watching if you can cover their ears right now so this is a man and put in jail. No who put in the impeachment report allegations of quote Oral Anal. Yeah yeah no no hold on a second hold on can store did court justice did. That's what they put in their Eric Impeachment report and we're talking now about a president who's not only asking a foreign power to interfere interfere and the holding up power. He then goes on national. TV A week later and asks China to interfere. In America's America's democratic elections a RISK THE DONALD TRUMP ZONE INTEL agency say is the greatest threat to American democracy and Ken Starr is lecturing lecturing America about taking impeachment too lightly when I told you what he filled his impeachment The report with it. It's just it's it is preposterous especially on the legal marriage saying that there is no way that a president can be impeached because of abuse of power when he called that quote the capstone of his impeachment argument against Bill Clinton. Yes so I was sitting with a colleague Ali yesterday watching Ken Starr's presentation and she turned to me and said just Ken Starr no he's Ken Starr what you know captured. There was little self awareness in the highest presentation of the dangers of hyperactive impeachment. And you so you kind of watched it saying. Do you know who you are in this conversation. Do you know have any understanding of the role you played and if there is single person in the country who stands for the kind of defining impeachment down. It is Ken Starr we are and for him to. I'm not going to try to replicate your irony is dead rant but you know if there's a single person who represents the ills that he's talking about he is it and for him to stand on their without any apparent awareness of that is genuinely bewildering. You know the other aspect of Star and Professor Dershowitz his presentation. That is more serious and also very upsetting. Is this attack on the idea that an abuse of power can be an impeachable offense without criminality associated with it and I just like to respond to both of them with the following Hypothetical Imagine Donald Trump announced that he was not going to do his job anymore as president. He was just going to play golf and spend all his time in the White House Bowling Alley. 'cause that's actually more fun than the presidency. No one would say that he had committed a crime. I presidents allowed to play golf. He's allowed to go bowling. They even built an alley for it in the White House and yet are they really saying that that that would not be impeachable And so you know the the basic defense here is it didn't happen. It doesn't matter if it did and Joe. Oh Biden sucks and that's not you know not. None of those elements are persuasive. And the the the idea that this material if true couldn't form the basis of an impeachment is really a dangerous degradation. I should of the idea that that the president has these awesome powers and we should judge him for how he uses them. The Tech Darling Darling. We work was the poster child for a new economy.
