Speaker 3 (00:28):
According to the regulatory and operative definition of P three
c O, the ni H did not fund gain of
function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. And you
know they have misinformation. Donald Trump was a threat to democracies.

Speaker 4 (00:42):
But it's like their slogan, I'm a threat to democracy.

Speaker 5 (00:45):
I'm the opposite, they're the threat to democracy.

Speaker 6 (00:47):
Well my reaction was, I was at Costco my my
my watch started to buzz, and I got so excited
I started leaking a little bit.

Speaker 4 (00:59):
Believe it or not, There's only one hundred and fifty
two days left till you get some food. Be away,
I'm coming to your sen.

Speaker 6 (01:12):
Go away.

Speaker 7 (01:12):
I'll get too, and saying you.

Speaker 8 (01:14):
A conscious song.

Speaker 4 (01:15):
From coast to coast, from border to border, from c
to Shining Sea. Sean Kennedy is on. Stay right here
for our final news roundup and Information Overload.

Speaker 8 (01:35):
I do is round up Information Overload hour. Here's our
toll free number at S eight hundred nine four one, Shawn.
If you want to be a part of the program.
Former Congressman former gubernatorial candidate Lee's Eldon as well, sir,
how are you hey?

Speaker 6 (01:47):
John good?

Speaker 1 (01:48):
All right?

Speaker 6 (01:48):
How are you?

Speaker 1 (01:49):
I'm good.

Speaker 8 (01:49):
So I said this to you before, I'm gonna repeat it,
and there's a reason I'm going to repeat it, and
I'll get to that. On the other side, if you
would run for governor under the current conditions or under
the conditions that you ran a couple of years ago,
I contend you probably would have won the race.

Speaker 1 (02:08):
I think the.

Speaker 8 (02:09):
Biggest challenge that you were facing is what has been
a steady, massive migration out of New York and into
places like Florida and the Carolinas and Tennessee and Texas
and other states around the country. Maybe you agree, maybe

(02:30):
you disagree. So in other words, people that would otherwise
have been open minded, inclined to maybe go for the
change that New York really needs, so many of them
have left that it put you at a decided disadvantage.
With all that said, you outperformed expectations by a huge
margin and actually ended up carrying across the finish line

(02:54):
in some well democratic plus democratic districts Republicans that actually
gave republic Looko's a majority in the House.

Speaker 1 (03:01):
You played a big part in out of my view, there.

Speaker 6 (03:03):
Have been a lot of Republicans who have fled the state.
It has happened now for years as the state has
been on in decline and New Yorkers might go travel
to where their family or other friends have relocated to
and they realize that their money will go further, They'll
feel safer, they get to live life freer, and the

(03:24):
decision becomes easier. The breaking point in New York gets
closer and the options are clear. So yeah, a lot
of Republicans have fled the state. Now since twenty twenty two,
you have had more Democrats reaching their breaking point being
set up by Democrats in the state and independent minded
voters as well. When I ran in twenty twenty two,

(03:46):
the Biden border crisis wasn't a top three issue for
many New Yorkers. Now it's number one issue. Eric Adams's
numbers are in a tank at the Hochel's numbers have
gone down the drain. Joe Biden's numbers are worse. So
in twenty twenty four, the atmosphere, the political earth in
New York has moved to the right because of all
of that, and I think that there is a real

(04:08):
opportunity for a good year in states like New York
because of the consequences of democratic policies and the reality
of the moment.

Speaker 1 (04:16):
Look, you may be right, I may be wrong.

Speaker 8 (04:19):
I'm one of the many hundreds of thousands that did
leave New York, as you know. But I was leaving anyway.
I mean, it just took me a long time to finally,
you know, be in a position where I could make
the switch. And it's not a decision I'll ever regret.
I can tell you that much. And by the way,
New York now state Democrats, who control the entire state government.

(04:40):
Then they now want to decriminalized prostitution. I did notice
that they have instituted a congestion tax. But because Kathy
Hochel is concerned about re election, my understanding is she's
going to put a hold on that, and I'm sure
if she is reelected, it'll instantly be put back in place.
But there are other things that New York is now

(05:00):
planning to do. I mean, it has been talked now
for a long time about a wealth tax, like California.
There's talk about an exit tax where if you leave
New York, they want the right to tax your income
even though you don't live there anymore, and you're not
a resident there anymore. Then there there's been a lot
of talk about, you know, billions of dollars spent in

(05:23):
reparations in states like New York. Meanwhile, the one thing
that would solve New York's problems, like bracking, which would
lower be able to be able to lower the tax
base significantly. And I know this was a big part
of your campaign, that's not even under consideration because radicals
basically run New York and I don't think it's I

(05:44):
don't see it getting any better. Add to it the
weaponization of justice in New York, and I just don't
see that that state's going to improve. And honestly, if
you really want to serve in government, Congressman, my advice
to you would be to get the hell out of
there and just see that handwriting on the wall.

Speaker 1 (06:01):
Now you may not like to hear that, but that's
my advice. That would be my advice.

Speaker 6 (06:05):
The reality is it's not going to get better because
it is one party Democrat rule and in York City,
one party Democratic rule. Up in Albany's super majorities in
the Assembly in the Senate, as you pointed out, they're
all good points from the beginning as it relates to
the congestion tax to the end of that point regarding tracking,
and we're not even beginning to scratch the service on

(06:27):
the pro criminal laws that have been passed during law
enforcement under the bus prioritizing with free goodies people who
aren't even illegally in this country or in New York.
From the congestion pricing front, the news is that Kathy Hockel,
now with an election coming up just a few months away,
is saying that she's going to hit the pause on
this new tax. Now, what's amazing as far as being

(06:49):
in an indictment on the economy under Joe Biden and
Kathy Hockel, is that she's saying that New Yorkers can't
afford it. Well, this was an election issue when we
were running against each other two years ago. You weren't
saying that the economy wasn't going well. Then, you weren't
talking about inflation like you are now who's been in
charge for the last two years. On the other front,

(07:11):
you're talking about the safe extraction of natural gas. Were
rich in resources. They won't allow that. They should they
have banned the approvals of new construction on pipelines, Katy
Hoche will sign off on a new order to ban
the sale of gas powered vehicles, and the list goes on.
It all adds up, and that's why the state is

(07:32):
not heading in the right direction. It's not going to
get better.

Speaker 8 (07:34):
Unless the California New York they're on parallel paths. You know,
they actually were so effective forcing people with the high
gas prices out in California. You know, you pay over
seven dollars a gallon on average, it's like twice the
national average for gasoline. So they've kind of were forcing
people into these electric vehicles. Now here's the interesting ballout

(07:57):
of all of that. Number one, they're more danger on
the road, and there was a study out that shows
that they actually pollute the environment more. But that's separate
and apart from everything else. But one of the fallouts
of this is their revenues have declined in terms of
gas taxes significantly. So now they're looking at a mileage

(08:18):
tax out in California, on a top of what are
billions of dollars in reparations, on top of their proposal
for an exit tax. You can't even leave the state
without them trying to haunt you for the rest of
your life and tax you even though you're not even
a you don't even live in the state. They want
to still tax you on income on top of a

(08:39):
wealth tax that they want to charge anybody that makes
any money.

Speaker 1 (08:43):
I mean, it's insane.

Speaker 6 (08:44):
And the crazy thing is, if you think about adding
up all of the left's agenda, if you really wanted to,
you know, your AOC, you have the keys to the castle,
and you want to implement your entire agenda. Bernie and
Elizabeth Warren and others. This goes beyond just increasing taxes.
And there's been a conversation where, you know, they love

(09:07):
the talking point of wanting people to pay their fair share. Well,
what is their fair share? Is it?

Speaker 2 (09:12):
Is it?

Speaker 1 (09:12):
Well, let me give you an example in California.

Speaker 8 (09:15):
Okay, a couple earning eighty four thousand dollars a year. Now,
you know, from New York pricing, that's nothing. You're not
living high on the hog on eighty four grand in
New York as a couple, you know, you're barely surviving.
And the same thing would exist out in California. And
if that is your income in California, they talk about

(09:37):
taxing the rich, Well, six percent of that eighty four
grand is going to go to the state and income taxes.
They're not just taxing the rich as they claim, They're
taxing everybody.

Speaker 6 (09:48):
If they increase the tax to one hundred percent on
the wealthiest Americans, they still would not have enough money
to implement their entire agenda. They would have to actually
aren't confiscating the wealth of the wealthiest Americans. If you
confiscated all of it, it still would not be enough
to implement this entire agenda. Now there are Americans out there,

(10:10):
you know, maybe someone's in college, and you know they
see some press release where Joe Biden's offering the payoffs
their school loan and they make some quick, single issue
decision to cast a vote as a reward there. Well,
listen for the rest of us who understand how this
all works. When you see all the free goodies and
handouts to people who aren't even legally in our country,
the rest of us need to be asking tough questions

(10:32):
of where the heck does all this come from. The
Democrats are pandering and that should not be rewarded with
more power. We should be rewarding people placing our trust
in folks who are not telling us just what we
want to hear to pander, but telling us that we
have a fiscal crisis in this country that can be

(10:54):
argued to be our greatest threat that we face right now.
What is the tough decision that you're willing to make
to fix it that might cost you votes, but you're
willing to say it and do it despite it. That's
the type of people we in office.

Speaker 8 (11:06):
All right, quick break right back more with former gubernatorial
candidate and New York Congressman Lee Zeldon on the other
side than your calls eight hundred and ninety four one, Sean.

Speaker 1 (11:15):
As we roll along, it's bringing you up people who
will make the news.

Speaker 7 (11:24):
This is the Sean Hannity Show.

Speaker 8 (11:54):
I we contention now with former New York congressman, former
Republican gubernatorial candidate from the state of New York le
He's helden.

Speaker 1 (12:01):
Us with us.

Speaker 8 (12:02):
I don't see any hope that this state is your state,
is going to turn around.

Speaker 1 (12:07):
I just don't you know.

Speaker 8 (12:09):
If you have defund dismantled no bail laws, reimagine the
police and that is life in New York City. If
you have a sanctuary City, New York City. You have
a sanctuary state California, sanctuary cities like San Francisco. It's
gotten so bad that every major, you know, change store
has decided to close down because as long as you

(12:30):
steal less than one thousand dollars worth of junk from
a store, they're not going to arrest you. I mean,
they have let the inmates run the asylum you got
you know, you got safe shooting zones in these in
these states. It's just the quality of life is deteriorated.

Speaker 1 (12:46):
You know. Now we have illegal immigrants. You saw the story.

Speaker 8 (12:49):
One hundred and twenty one New York City hotels are
being used to house the illegal immigrants, and taxpayers in
New York and New York City have to pay the
bill for the housing and the food and the education
of their kids. And if some of them were incarcerated
for edge, the criminal justice system and then the healthcare

(13:10):
that they need all paid for by taxpayers in your state.

Speaker 1 (13:15):
It is unsustainable.

Speaker 6 (13:18):
Yet, and he just allowed the non citizens to vote
inside of New York. It was actually one of those
illegal migrants.

Speaker 1 (13:24):
Well, they tried to do that in New York City.

Speaker 8 (13:26):
It was stopped by our court, but they passed it
in New York City.

Speaker 6 (13:29):
Right now, one of those illegal migrants from Venezuela just
shot to police off NYPD officers a couple of days ago.
It was somebody illegally in the country who didn't show
up to his court date, who had an illegal firearm,
who was under investigation for part of all sorts of
arm robberies that were taking place. Yeah, then he shoots
two NYPD officers. Listen, I will say this too. Last week,

(13:51):
there were two poles that came out on New York
as relates to President Trump. The first one at Siena College,
Pole said that President Trump was out down nine. They
under polled Republicans only twenty two percent. They oversampled New
York City thirty nine percent. They didn't even ask Robert
Kennedy Junior as a name on the ballot. Still had
it as nine points. Then at the end of the

(14:12):
week a poll comes out from Emerson saying that President
Trump is down six. We saw the energy in the
South Bronx and even if let's just say President Trump
wasn't able to win New York. Putting that aside the
fact that in a state where President Trump lost by
twenty three points in twenty twenty. You're seeing that shift
the ground under us. This is more than just Republicans

(14:35):
voting Republican conservatives voting conservatives. There are disenfranchised Democrats, black voters,
Asian voters, Hispanic voters, and more who have been abused,
screwed by the Democratic Party. They're disenfranchised by it, and
now they have open arms waiting for us to show
up with conservative solutions. I'm telling Republicans, get into the cities,

(14:57):
go to blue areas like never before, don't pay their
show up with conservative solutions. I think there are a
lot of Democrats frady to vote Republicans.

Speaker 1 (15:04):
You really, do you think it's really going to change.

Speaker 6 (15:07):
I believe that it's and I don't blame and I
don't blame Democrats if we come up short. I blame
Republicans if we come up short. When a high paid
political consultant says not to go to the South Bronx
because they'll never vote for you, I say, that's exactly
where we need to go. And what happens when we
show up is that they're waiting with open arms because
not only have no Republicans been shown up, but no

(15:30):
Democrats have been shown up because the Democrats know even
if they don't show up that they're still going to
get them vote. But I think a lot of people
are realizing their vote's been taken for granted. We saw
it with the black voters in Chicago who show up
to the city council meeting pissed off that their tax
dollars are going to illegal migrants. I think people have
hit the breaking point. It's their kids, maybe in the

(15:51):
vut quality public school education. It might be a community
seeing crime on the rise and having prosecutors like Bragg
who won't go after violent time. It's these are issues
that transcend blind partisan loyalty. This is bigger than being
a Democrat to them. They care about their future.

Speaker 8 (16:08):
A bubb all elves me ask you, and you did
a great job as a congressman, And I really mean it.
I thought you ran a great campaign. And I think
ten years ago, had it been the same situation with
not as many people having left New York at the time,
you would have won.

Speaker 1 (16:24):
Are you going to stay there for the rest of
your life?

Speaker 6 (16:26):
I had no plans on leaving. The only four years
that I've spent outside of New York were my four
years on active duty in the army, and this has
been my home born and raised. And every time Tatthy
Hochele says, you know, Donald Trump lese. Eldon should get
on the bus and move to Florida, that only makes
me want to stay and fight more. I mean, Hockel
is she's calling on New Yorkers to flee, and she's

(16:49):
making the case easier for New Yorkers to leave. Where
you can't blame people for going and not putting New
York in time out, but permanently saying that they're gone.
I get it. A lot of folks who used to
come visit the state saying on I'm gonna go spend
my available weekend or a week in some other state,
not going to New York. I get it. But for me,
I'm still here. I'm staying on fizing, have no plans

(17:10):
to leave.

Speaker 8 (17:11):
Okay, I respect your decision, I really do. I think
you're nuts, But I and you know, I understand your
willingness to stay and fight.

Speaker 1 (17:19):
I admire it.

Speaker 8 (17:21):
I don't think it's something at this point you can
win in our lifetime. I think I don't know what
it would take to change the place. I really don't Lee.
We appreciate your time, buddy, thank you.

Speaker 6 (17:31):
You got to think Sean, all right.

Speaker 8 (17:32):
Yeah, Joe Biden's big election year conversion on the issue
of immigration is beyond laughable. I mean, how many election
year conversions do you get from this guy? You know,
all of a sudden, O, the border is secure, the
borders closed, I can't do anything. Republican won't help me
or anything. And then oh, I'm gonna do it the
way everybody said I could do it in the beginning,

(17:53):
because I undid all the good policies in the beginning. Anyway, Uh,
listen to Joey talk about this and is flip flopping
on immigration.

Speaker 5 (18:03):
Come here today to do what the Republics in Congress
ifuse to do. Take the necessary steps to secure our border.
Within one hundred days, I'm going to send to the
United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over eleven
million undocumented people. Today, I'm announcing actions to bar migrants
who cross our southern border unlawfully from receiving asylum. Migrants

(18:27):
will be restricted from receiving asylum at our southern border
unless they seek it after entering through an established lawful process.
There are going to be no deportations in the first
one hundred days of my campaign.

Speaker 2 (18:39):
Let me get that right.

Speaker 1 (18:40):
You are going to freeze deportations.

Speaker 5 (18:42):
Freeze deportations for the first hundred days, and those who
seek come to the United States legally, for example, by
making an appointment and coming to a port of entry,
Asylum will still be available to them, still available. But
if an individual chooses not to use our legal pathways,
if they choose to come without permission and against the law,

(19:03):
they'll be restricted from receiving an asylum and staying in
the United States. This action will help us gain control
of our border, restore order into the process. All those
people are seeking asylum, they deserve to be heard. That's
who we are where a nation says, if you want
to flee and you're freeing oppression, you should come. So
today I'm moving past republic instruction and using the executive

(19:25):
authorities available to me as president to do what I
can on my own to address the border. This is
the first president of history the United States of America.
That's anybody seeking asylum has to do it in another country.
That's never happened before in America. We must face the
simple truth to protect America as a land that welcomes immigrants,

(19:45):
we must first secure the border and secure it now.

Speaker 8 (19:49):
Okay, there's a guy that is been playing politics the
whole time and with one hundred well we're now one
hundred and fifty two days from election day. He did
it with one hundred and fift three days before election day,
ten million unvetted Joe Biden illegal immigrants, many from our worst,
most hostile enemies and regimes.

Speaker 1 (20:09):
Unreal.

Speaker 8 (20:11):
Anyway, let's get to our busy phones. Jack is in
New York. Hey, Jack at New York, How you doing.
What's going on? Forget about it.

Speaker 2 (20:19):
I'm in Buffalo, Sean, so my accent wouldn't quite be
like that, but I'm doing good today. Thank you.

Speaker 1 (20:25):
Buffalo is great. It's just a little cold.

Speaker 2 (20:28):
Not today it's not, but generally it is. You know,
in February and January, I kind of want to talk
about this notion that there needs to be unanimity on
a verdict for an underlying crime in the Trump case.
And I know you had spoke yesterday about the case
of Ramos versus Louisiana. That's I think that's misplaced. That

(20:52):
case simply said that you can't convict somebody in a
criminal trial and have a verdict comeback where ten say yeah,
in too say no. That's all that case stands for.

Speaker 8 (21:03):
No, you're wrong, because what the judge and the jury
instruction said here is you can find people guilty. And
I don't have the exact language that I have read
on the air numerous days and put up on the
screen on TV. But instead of having the idea that well,
you can believe he's guilty for you can believe it
for one reason, and for for another reason, and four

(21:24):
for a third reason, the language in the actual Supreme
Court decision that's a twenty twenty decision was very clear
that you need unanimity on all issues. There was no
ambiguity in that language at all whatsoever.

Speaker 2 (21:40):
I disagree with that the Court office.

Speaker 1 (21:43):
You can't disagree with what the facts are. You just can't.

Speaker 2 (21:47):
I disagree with what you're representing. That case a Louisiana case.
To mean this, let me give you an example, Sean.

Speaker 1 (21:55):
But the Supreme Court language was clear.

Speaker 8 (21:58):
I've read it on the air repeat and I'm telling
you it said unanimity on all issues.

Speaker 1 (22:05):
There was no ambiguity there there.

Speaker 2 (22:08):
That case was simply a tended to verdict that was
not a case like this. The Court of Appeals in
New York and the People versus Tavirus addressed this issue.
You can be charged and found guilty of falsifying business records,
but you do not need to prove the underlying crime

(22:28):
that you were attempting to conceal. The Court of Appeals
is very clear on that.

Speaker 8 (22:34):
And that's we're talking about two different things. I'm talking
about the judges instructions. In other words, First of all,
I don't even think they had jurisdiction on a federal
election law.

Speaker 1 (22:44):
That's number one.

Speaker 8 (22:45):
This is in New York City, a misdemeanor if you're
talking about business records whose statute of limitations had long
run out. I felt the judge allowed prejudicial information during
the trial, which would be another grounds for appeal as well.

Speaker 1 (23:00):
And this deals with, you.

Speaker 8 (23:02):
Know, never mind the sixth Amendment rights of Donald Trump
that were violated, but not even telling him up until
the last day what crime he was even being charge with,
as every intelligent lawyer was pointing out as the trial
was ongoing, and as it relates to the two Supreme
Court decisions and juried instructions, a clearly mandated unanimity of

(23:25):
the jury on all issues involved. You can't break it
down with, well, I find them guilty for reason A,
B or C. But if you all agree it's guilty,
that's okay. That's exactly the opposite of what the decision
said Sean on.

Speaker 2 (23:40):
The issue of the sixth Amendment to Art. To say
that the defense was only aware of the underlying crimes
a day or two before the trial started is absolutely incorrect.
Judge Marshahan ruled on a motion that the defense filed
and clearly indicated him prize the defense of what the
underlying crimes were. There is in New York State that

(24:02):
a federal crime. If you commit a federal crime, that
can be a justification for committing our being found guilty
of falsifying business.

Speaker 8 (24:11):
Okay, let me you know what you've caused me to
go and pull out the actual decision.

Speaker 1 (24:16):
Okay, let me read to you. Okay.

Speaker 8 (24:18):
This is April twentieth, twenty twenties Supreme Court Ramos versus
Louisiana that the Sixth Amendment right to a jury trial
is incorporated against the states by the fourteenth Amendment requires
a unanimous jury verdict in both state and federal criminal trials. Okay,
So in this particular case, you know what the Supreme

(24:39):
Court was doing, you know, is addressing the very specific
issues and whether it defended is entitled to a new
trial if his convictions by a non unanimous jury were
final but his sentences were under review, et cetera. At
the time that Ramos was decided. The court held that

(24:59):
he even if a defendant sentence or resentencing is still
on appeal, a defendant is not entitled to a new
trial under Ramos once a direct review of its non
unanimous conviction is final. All right, That's a separate issue
in that particular case. But when it comes to the
issue of unanimity and the sixth Amendment, they were very
very very clear about it, and that is there has

(25:22):
to be unanimity on all issues to have a conviction.
And they talked about a state trial, and they talked
about a federal Trump and remember they upgraded what was
a statute of limitations past misdemeanor to even get to
this novel legal theory. And know, Donald Trump did not
know what the actual charge was, as lawyer didn't know,

(25:45):
and neither did any legal analyst on television know, or
writing in the Wall Street Journal or any of the
top newspapers know even fake news CNN commentators agreed with that.

Speaker 2 (25:58):
Go and look at Judge Murshall's decision on the underlying
motions filed. It is clear as day that they were
apprized of what the underlying crimes would be submitted to
the jury. It's clear as day.

Speaker 1 (26:14):
He let closing arguments.

Speaker 8 (26:16):
He allowed the prosecution to declare with certainty that there
was a violation of federal election law. And he let
it be said dozens and dozens of time campaign finance
laws that had not been established at all in the
case by the evidence in this case. And to do
that was prejudicial towards the jury, on top of the instructions,

(26:40):
which I would argue very clearly went against two Supreme
Court decisions. But we're going around in a circle. I'm
not going to convince you. But the facts are very
clear in this case. And you could ask Greg Jarrett,
Alan Dershowitz, Jonathan Turley, Andy McCarthy, Mark Levin, Judge Jenny
ie Piro.

Speaker 1 (26:58):
They all agree with me.

Speaker 2 (27:01):
Yes, I also believe they're partisan. Okay, we have to agree.

Speaker 8 (27:04):
Upon that and so are you a partisan? You obviously
are a partisan too, So just cut the crap about partisanship.

Speaker 1 (27:12):
Just be honest about who you are.

Speaker 2 (27:14):
Okay. Well, regardless of my political.

Speaker 8 (27:17):
Stance, so your partisan, I want you to hear, say yes,
I'm partisan. I want a Trump convicted.

Speaker 1 (27:22):
Say it.

Speaker 2 (27:24):
I will not say that I am partisan. I will
say that I tend to vote democratic. Okay, Yeah, I
can look at a case objectively in telling you.

Speaker 8 (27:34):
Well, so can Mark Levin, Judge Jennine Piro, Greg Jarrett,
Jonathan Turley, the law professor, Alan Dershowitz, the law professor
at Harvard, and Greg Jarrett, who knows the law like
the back of his hand.

Speaker 2 (27:48):
Well, he's wrong about this, Sean.

Speaker 1 (27:51):
No, they're right and you're wrong.

Speaker 8 (27:53):
Okay, because the language that I kept putting up on
the screen and reading on this radio program is clear.

Speaker 2 (28:00):
That case in Ramos is so distinguishable what we have here.

Speaker 1 (28:05):
Okay, you're net, We're we're not going in circles. Do
you have anything else to add?

Speaker 2 (28:08):
Can I move on?

Speaker 8 (28:10):
Last thought? And I got other callers, what's your last thought?

Speaker 2 (28:14):
Last thought? There is more than a federal crime that
would have been committed here. There was a New York
election statue that said you cannot interfere an election by him?

Speaker 8 (28:26):
And why didn't they charge him with a New York
election statue? Because they didn't, Because you don't have to.

Speaker 1 (28:33):
Okay.

Speaker 8 (28:33):
So my question to you is, does a defendant have
a right to know what they're being charged with a
constitutional right?

Speaker 2 (28:42):
They do without question?

Speaker 1 (28:44):
Okay, did Donald Trump know what he was being charged with?
The answer is no, he was listen he no. The
answer is no, that's wrong. That is correct too. You're
wrong again, mister partisan.

Speaker 2 (29:00):
Did the indictment state the crime? No?

Speaker 1 (29:04):
No, thank you. Okay.

Speaker 8 (29:07):
Now let's go to the bookkeeping error, the underlying bookkeeping error. Now,
did Michael Cohen admit on the stand that he did
this and admitted that he told people that he did
this deal without the knowledge of Donald Trump? Did he
say that and admit that he told many people that
that is correct?

Speaker 1 (29:22):
Is that true?

Speaker 2 (29:23):
Yes? He did, Yes, he did.

Speaker 1 (29:25):
Okay.

Speaker 8 (29:25):
So if he telling all these people that it's true
and we know he is a convicted, admitted liar and
now also a thief, uh, do you think he should
be charged with stealing from the Trump organization?

Speaker 2 (29:37):
If if they want too sure, absolutely.

Speaker 1 (29:40):
If they want to. I didn't ask you.

Speaker 8 (29:41):
If they want to, if you steal from a company
you're working for, should you be charged for that crime.

Speaker 2 (29:47):
If the Trump organization wants I.

Speaker 8 (29:49):
Didn't ask you. It's not about the Trump organization. He
admitted on the stand he stole from a company. Okay,
tens of thousands of dollars you would need. But if
you're a star witness for the prosecution, they're going to
overlook that, aren't they.

Speaker 1 (30:04):
No, you see what a partisan you are.

Speaker 8 (30:07):
You know you call here and you want to just
dismiss all of these smart legal minds.

Speaker 1 (30:14):
Now.

Speaker 8 (30:14):
Jonathan Turley's a Democrat. Alan Dershwitz is a Democrat like you.
And the difference between them and you is, well, they
know a lot more about the law number one and
number two. They're not partisan like you are. They're looking
at the law. And Dershwitz said, in sixty plus years
of practicing law, he's never seen a case this bad.

(30:36):
Greg Jarrett forty plus years practicing law, He's never seen
a case this bad. The same goes for Turley, Jonathan,
the case goes for Andy McCarthy, and the case goes
for Mark Levin, Okay, so you know what, I think
you need to look inward and realize that you just
wanted Trump convicted and you didn't give a damn how

(30:57):
they got there. Otherwise you wouldn't be defending the indefensible.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
