This is Jordan secular today on Jay Sekulow live Atty. Gen. bar tells Congress that the Department of Justice has appointed a US attorney to look at whether the unmasking by the Obama administration should lead to criminal charges.
Talk about that today Jay Sekulow lot live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow line 38 people en masse. Michael Flynn's name 9×2 month timeframe seven people at the Treasury Department en masse.
Michael Flynn's name is this an issue that Mr. Durham is looking into another US attorney to look into the issue of unmasking because of you know the high number of unmasking's and some that do not readily appear to have been in the line of normal business phone lines are open for your questions right now. Call 1-800-684-3110 two. Mr. Durham is looking at how the whole truck or something started yet another US attorney can give is that US attorney's name is your couple daughter, John Bash, Texas John Bass of Texas is looking specifically at the fact unmasking 38 people 49 times unmet. Michael Flynn's name and probably other unmasking that took place in the final days of the Obama by demonstrating that accurate actually much longer. Even before the and now your host Jordan secular old Jay Sekulow like this Jordan secular when we got you breaking news yesterday because we've all go about attorney general bar appointing US Attorney John Durham to investigate potential wrongdoing which would be criminal activity of US attorneys investigating as we talked about yesterday all in the Russian matter involving again the entire dossier the entire investigation might Flynn's matter going into that set up the fact that the FBI was doctoring emails you had it at Department of Justice attorneys were Dr. emails you got that criminal investigation ongoing that's what US attorney investigation is to criminal investigation and we now have confirmed from Atty. Gen. bar in yesterday's hearing as you just heard that the there is a separate criminal federal investigation going on into the unmasking request by the department by the Obama administration officials and while it was announced two months ago on Sean Hannity's broadcast that there was this criminal investigation. I want to make it clear to all of you right now that at that point all we knew was that a US attorney had been appointed separately by because Durham said it was just too much for his investigation on on the Russia probe, so he needed a separate person but we didn't really know more information than that.
Other than who that person was. Now we know the gravity of that unmasking investigation that is separate from nerves investigation because it's two months into it, so it wasn't like an open and shut.
While it may have been bad practice, but it wasn't something they could charge criminally too much sin is very different and that's why it was such breaking news yesterday.
I want to play again for every body. What Atty. Gen. bar said in response to Jim Jordan because it just underscores the gravity and remember our unmasking when in federal court.
We just announced yesterday of the broadcast that unmasking with that said, one, you can't just say we can neither confirm nor deny this exist at the Glover excuse and to if it has your name, you can't use the excuse of it must've been my staff member which means Samantha power, it doesn't matter if it was her deputy fit, said Samantha power is attributed legally to Samantha power. Same thing goes if it's Joe Biden. We play bar. Do we have it a quick enough flip, 38 people en masse. Michael Flynn's name 49 times in a two month timeframe seven people at the Treasury Department en masse.
Michael Flynn's name is this an issue that Mr. Durham is looking into it as another US attorney to look into the issue of unmasking because of you know the high number of unmasking's and some that do not readily appear to have been in the line of normal business planning is to be clear, so there is a there is a another investigation on that issue. Specifically, going on to Jess's arm right now. Yes, that's the big deal folks right now and you know what art weighted federal court meets all those people being investigated can't use the excuse that was some staff rooted in the staffers to be investigated to talk about that we come back the American Center for Law and Justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.
Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those for their faith.
Uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.
We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way more limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift $50 gift becomes 100.

And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right to question your free copy mission life today online ACLJ/Jay Sekulow like this Jordan secular take your phone calls 164, 31 to play this so this was literally back in.
My dad is joining us. If you would talk to us on air Jay Sekulow's with us or chief counsel Dacey LJ 1-800-684-3110 that's 1-800-684-3110. He's traveling majorities by phone.
I want a place of two months ago.
I want to put into context on Sean Hannity's television broadcast three days after George Ford was murdered in the same day the President announced that the Department of Justice was opening a federal civil rights investigation into the murder of George George Floyd, a DOJ spokesperson was on Sean Hannity's television broadcast at a time when Ed and mentioned the specific that that Durham had asked that bar point a different US attorney to look at the unmasking issue.
So this was at a time when none of the nation's focus was on this topic. Everybody's focus was on the what happened to George Floyd.
The wrongdoing there. The protest that it started and how the protest started devolving into kind of chaotic situations, but take a listen because I would be fair and honest. So it comes out is back in two months and one day go on Fox news Carrie Cooper from DOJ by 23 John Dr. as part of what Atty. Gen. determined that certain aspects out your hand separately support to gendarmes investigation Sampson John – at one of our US attorney toxicity just clean out asking inherently wrong but certainly not the frequency and motivation and the reasoning behind him asking can be a problem.
So you got that. That's two months in one day go and I would go to my desk because I dead. Then we have a weekly for people. The first segment we could play for get a moment, but we did have again yesterday Atty. Gen. bar in response to Congressman Jim Jordan say specifically that that investigation is still ongoing. That's a big deal date was like an open and shut, because as she said that television broadcast is not that unmasking is inherently legal. It was then. It's the number in the scope and we know now were too much into a criminal investigation into just unmasking that sacrament may vote will reconnect with him because here's the point why this is a big deal.
You get an announcement two months ago that hardly anyone knew and it was not a main topic of any broadcast because of what happened to George Floyd and rightfully so, but it's much different than what you know about it. Two months later that there is a separate criminal investigation going on just on what the Obama people and that includes Joe Biden the Democrat nominee for President who was the last person who unmasks Mike Flynn. The last person in our case, we just wanted said Joe Biden can't use some excuse like what was it actually be.
It was my deputy but that legally if it said Joe Biden. It is Joe Biden and now that's our civil case FOIA and now we have it.
We know there's a criminal investigation started two months ago but is still ongoing. Just unmasking them Jordan. This is really really significant for number ways. First of all to get the confirmation directly from the Atty. Gen. himself not backing away from it, not hedging it, confirming that John Bash is indeed look into it. That in and of itself is significant but during a couple of things about the scope here and you touched on this but the fact that it's a criminal investigation, the fact that he acknowledged that it's even bigger than Congressman Jordan had outlined involves more names in Jordan it reaches even further back than we had prior known to prior to that transition. That's significant as well. Jordan I would just I just want to quickly tie this to some of her FOIA work because this is exactly why we have worked to uncover information that ties people involved in these scandals together how much I want our listeners to remember. We've announced this before, but one of our four has uncovered an email between Jean Klapper, Michael Dempsey and Stephanie also sold and on January 7, 2017 talking about that expansion of access to raw signal intelligence adorn all three of those individuals made an unmasking request on that exact day, January 7. Why is that information known and why can John Bash now look at it.
Jordan is because our foil work uncovered it's and this is what we always say a lot of these puzzle pieces don't make sense until everything is out in the light and then they fit together. Great news from the Atty. Gen. that John Bash is looking at it and that the scope is bigger than we knew. Prior to write to my dad at Jay Sekulow is joining us up by phone. He's traveling that you put our FOIA case together and that federal court when and now that we know that this criminal investigation is going on separately from John Durham's at the department of justice with a different US attorney at a Texas and is been going on now for two months means they're really looking at that unmasking itself is illegal, but that there may have been criminal activity with the specific unmasking going on by the Obama administration with Mike Flynn and others related to the Trump campaign that exactly right but at what we label them, without litigation. We that those that engage in unmet including the that they'd expected it ultimately so it's possible that you mentioned earlier acutely significant because it sets forth a framework of inability to just blame others kind of what was going on but that's number one book to you but you can't program. Québec was on the boat was going on so that was that was confirmed but now we know that the investigation began by a different US attorney specifically focusing on this one issue, which is a whole lot of unmasking so I think when you look at the framework of where we are today quickly moving towards justice and I think people to be held accountable optimistic that I would take your phone calls 164, 31, two, that's 100-684-3110 fax that there is a prosecutor who is now two months into investigation just on the unmasking is a criminal investigation.
That's what you point US attorneys just on the unmasking Mike Flynn and Stan said because of our work because of what Rick Cornell did as DNI. We now know who put those requested specific to Mike Flynn.
The last one in is the Democrat nominee for President United States and in our case, the federal court.
So now the law as it stands today says that if it says Joe Biden is Joe Biden and he cannot use the excuse like it was some deputy because of even if it was some deputy. It was a deputy high enough that it was like him doing it so that's because of our case which gives that US attorney even more power on his criminal investigation she think about the work of the ACLJ just in this matter, I would play for everybody. Again we played what the announcement of this initially on Sean Hayes broadcast which got lost in the into the matter.
George Floyd, but again yesterday why this was such big news because it's now two months in to a criminal investigation that is separate from nerves just on the unmasking Mike Flynn take a listen Jim Jordan to Atty. Gen. Bart Mr. Durham is looking at how the whole top processing started yet another US attorney can give is that US attorney's name is that some your couple donor John Bash of Texas John Bass of Texas is looking specifically at the fact that unmasking 38 people 49 times unmet. Michael Flynn's name and probably other unmasking that took place in the final days of the Obama Biden administration is accurate, actually much longer. Even before the dead this is. It is significant that so it's a longer period of time. Now we know that's different than what we do work for two months ago and so it's extent it's more extensive than even what was declassified by Rick Cornell involves more officials and then you add our civil case to it on the FOIA side and all these officials like Samantha power, Joe Biden's excuse that he wasn't really them and we also know from declassified info that they were getting briefed on it in January I meet by Ed Abby in November after the election by Jim Kobe by Peter Schrock in the Oval Office with all Biden Obama with Biden I meet this dead it it it adds another level of seriousness to what is going on and how our work contributes to those investigations, regardless of whether we go Biden or whoever the Al Gore was the date of whoever the nominee forever. The pixelated rate can hide behind. They can hide behind the fact that they are blaming this on staff or staff.
There's an idea really did know. So when it relates like when the vice President and the order of pain where at least you could maybe make a callable argument.
I don't think their callable argument on this case because of the situation, but I still Drop you when we think about that for a moment, make note that this is why it's important to support the work of the ACLJ because it's like pants that it putting pieces of the puzzle together and because of people's appropriate yield quickly and that shalt were able to put that puzzle together each bite.
He got a patient with people just to scratch all that but you gotta be patient but I think were getting very close. Our folks to support the work ACLJ.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith uncovering corruption in Washington fighting to protect life courts and in Congress. ACLJ would not be able to do any of this.
For that we are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift $50 gift becomes 100. This is a critical time for the ACLJ. The work we simply would not occur without your generous matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online okay Jay Sekulow lives Jordan secular take your phone calls at one 800 684 31 two that's what hundred 684-3110. I will update you as well.
Cory DeAngelis from the reason foundation, and reason.org is join us in the second half hour, the broadcast and update you on the school all the rear now up to. So I talked my dad about this as well, as he joins us will take your calls to. If you think you're in a situation where he might be legal representation. Remember were able to do that for free because of the donors. The ACLJ where were able to do all that legal work, whether it's representing churches in California all now it is up to 1315 separate individual families that have contacted us in 46 states and Washington DC. 900 of those have already been assigned to attorneys and they were working throughout me some.
Some days we get three and 401 day so we work through which attorneys and are handling kind of which region which state we dead. That alone the significance of that work they were doing and somewhat involved school board. Some of it might involve federal court. Some of it might involve state court, and I know what I will go to too much detail, but that we could be taking our first action in these matters so that from from the client contact to actually taking that first action as early as Friday. So I mean this is this is a serious amount of work the ACLJ is doing just this one issue and then add to this boy awaited that we got this week as well.
There were able to do it is really great. Their parents that are understandable, but because unknown as to what can happen with their school or their school Guardian out about were not suing to make schools open that position with advocating that we are doing is that school boards at the federal government is going to let like to make resources available directly to parents, especially parents in the need to buy computers need to get Internet access to their special needs situation so this is about 1350 cases is working on it that the individual client that lawyers are working through their proceeding. Like you said we may go to school work proceeding as early as Friday in Arizona.
The others that we do as well live and hope we can get resolved by not going to court will go to court and drawing some over the course involving changing matter. As you also know, but that's the great service that were enabled by American Center for Law and got people all over the country that could never afford to hire lawyers at the at the level of litigation expertise and cost that our keypad and worker the great 1350 family because of our generosity about the other reason could be a member of the judging part of our 164, 31 to let me remind you folks were able to do all that work again dysphoria. When we got which now ties into directly the separate criminal investigation just on unmasking. We think that Samantha power 260 unmasking request by her US ambassador to the UN that intelligent just in 2016 Justin 2016 and now she can't hide behind that was just random staff because of our case it is a criminal investigation into this unmasking and it's been going on for two months and that makes it that much more significant letting of the so if you want to support our work. ACLJ.org this is the time to do it. It's a matching challenge you double the impact your donation. That means a $20 donation is like $40, but your discharge 20. Your tax-deductible donation ACLJ.org your $50 donation is like 100 forces ACLJ that hundred alternations like 200 you can do the math. Donate now ACLJ.org that was on the phone Jim in Tennessee online to Jim. Welcome to Jay Sekulow live on the air.
That's what it is great with correct answer. Perception is reality, particularly to the middle America get their news from Main Street to close to the election time.
It's going to be a political campaign.
He will because it will be no really valid point will not enter because you gotta have a completed case leatherworking, by the grand jury. All that template but I expect that there can be action quickly. I think it will be. I mean, I don't know that that no inside knowledge and that's all that I think will be action in the next month probably going to be wrong but I think the point is that to be completed case, the court is but I think it could be specifically like that are culpable and I think a lot of I suspect now, having said that, now you got the second one on the unmasking involving the jail because of work and I think there you got another situation. The liability yes you do it the L lexicon, they certainly weren't spying on an existing campaign with they were spying on the current Presidential campaign. So, I mean but I think that will bar. I know he knows how to do this tightly. One of the greatest had not an argument not worried. He drove the Democrats nuts yesterday that I think he's honestly best person I've ever seen testify before Congress has to do I visit people individually done it once or twice I have done it.
I've done it before. Got a great job but he has to do it all the time is done for two different administrations on serious matters worse anything like admit it frustrates that left side. He shuts every one of them down.
He shows again, no emotion, which is the right thing for the Atty. Gen. It's not really that one side or the other is just he responds directly like he did to this question about election interference from Congressman Tom McClintock, Republican from California by 20 to just listen to general bars response immediately. He's not. He's not trying to play some Eric Holder partisan hack like they try to make him out to be like Nancy Pelosi says a henchman for Trump no holder was a henchman for Obama.
That's the truth. Leslie by 22.
Are you going to be able to go to right this wrong before it becomes a precedent for future election interference by corrupt officials in our justice and intelligence agencies, and I really can't protect that. I think as you know John Curran is looking at all these matters didn't delay that action for a while but is working very diligently and justice is not something you order up on a schedule like you're ordering a pizza. Write something every day that there is so we got our work that the civil action you got the criminal investigation ongoing. People want to see justice done in these matters.
I mean our work is directly tied to this dad I work with the students and this is a critical time. These last 50 seconds our first half hour to support our work with and whether it is helpful or getting to the bottom of the beat that took place over the last four years.
Your membership in the ACLJ allows it to happen. Looking hundred 50 family thickly through it without you certainly get his other information public law litigation effort is aiding the country as a whole to join the ACLJ become a member donate any money we get back to you do that it ACLJ.org. It is a critical time support the work of the ACLJ we are loaded with with work.
We are in that way.
That's great you want to be able to do more of that and have more resource available so we can help people donate today ACLJ that would be part of a matching challenge the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms to you and your family. Give a gift today online okay live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and Jay Sekulow why we are taking phone calls 160, or 31 two the 2000 684-3110 we are talking about.
Of course, the significance that Atty. Gen. bar confirmed that the investigation which the separate investigation from John nerves in the Russian matter in the hoax and to did you know that we know the rest should investigation all of that was again baseless. But there's a criminal investigation to see if what was done by these agents at the FBI and DOJ attorneys like lying to Congress and lying to the Pfizer court about who the steel dossier source was Scripture steel. He said he relied on the source and this source had some sources but that source was they said was Russia based which was a Italy live in Russia that's their home and are there. In fact, the source was surprise surprise when you're getting your it paid for by the Clinton campaign and the DNC was based in Washington DC and it was I think from Russia at some point but had moved to the United States and was at the Brookings Institute still is. I think to this day, and Chris were still's payroll so wasn't Russia basically lied to Pfizer court. That's what criminal charge and then they lie to Congress what Lindsey Graham said that be another criminal charge because they're always under oath of those situations so that that's very important point as we talk about that. We also have the school. The school choice issues.
The voucher programs the stimulus issues and will get out. They admitted our government affairs director.
Where are we on the stimulus because this affects every single one of our listeners right now whether they are small business owners. They work in small business those PPP loans D the stimulus checks that may go out and what about that will be all of this it is so important to everybody listen to the broadcast. Right now it also involves that education issue. The school choice now act in the right in the thick of those negotiations on the broader stimulus package. Right now Jordan. As we talked about on yesterday's broadcast leader.
McConnell has outlined a roughly $1 trillion package that would build on the last stimulus that was passed to include another round of direct payments to Americans, it would replenish the PPP program would authorize $105 billion for education with the aim it out reopening as many schools as possible and Jordan inside that issue is where were really focusing trying to get Sen. Scott and Chairman Alexander's idea that 10% of that hundred $5 billion be allocated for school choice priorities. Basically that would flow directly to students and not just to schools that might not be open. Jordan where those negotiations stand is Speaker Pelosi is insisting on the more than $3 trillion heroes act bill that the House passed a couple of months ago there were all sorts of things in their Jordan that do not have anything to do with coronavirus legislation and secretary minutia and today standing beside Pres. Trump said that the two sides are very far apart in those negotiations are Jordan there is a lot of work to do before that package can get over the line. I still continue to think that there might be a short-term unemployment insurance package that passes before that even though Speaker Pelosi has said no. I think that's a likely outcome, but I want to stress this really a carefully Jordan we are really honed in on whatever education dollars pass both the Republicans and Democrats think that it should be in there. We want to get maximum flexibility inside those dollars for parents and students so that they can pick an education program that actually works for their students rather than just letting those dollars go to a stool, a school that may or may not open at all during that's really were refocused and in this week were in the thick of those negotiations have folks I have been approved to be take your phone calls 164 3110 we got Cory DeAngelis from the reason foundation.

Through these again. Now it's up to 1315 individual families that have contacted the ACLJ through ACLJ.org board/help and just about 2 1/2 weeks it looks like will be take your first action on the situation Arizona that we talked about with Cory where the schools are not supposed to open at least until August 14 but they are going to open under a different name and you have to pay for it if you want to send your kid there for for the exact same time that school would be open and not just for like some special program because you're going extra early or you're staying later. But even if you want to go. I during this normal school hours to stay on what would be your school schedule. They are charging up to $200 a week per student, which would be up to $800 per kid you have in elementary school at the same time school started I meet soon so that will be our first action that could come as early as Friday. So were started.
Take take that next step.
We will talk to Cory to present so much going on around the country to J to get ulcerative.
He's got this new book coming out. You can preorder now at Amazon. It's called school choice myths setting the record straight on education. Freedom is out October 7. We can preorder now at Amazon.
I'll tweak the leak out right after he's on this, but I want to Cory right now because Cory there is a lot happening on the school choice front as we speak. Because the pandemic refers right off the bat we have Sen. Rand Paul to say that all existing federal education funding should go directly to families, which is even goes further then the school choice now act totally interesting that Rand Paul announced that in an email couple of days ago. They want to reallocate all existing or a large portion at least of existing federal education spending to family directly make that argument that will start even reopening my students will get the money life and in the negative family think we do another taxpayer initiative to get a good idea they are and luckily in Arizona is reiterated is absolutely ridiculous where the state competition that the government but to provide a free public education in there trying to charge parents to write that in the elementary schools when they would've sent their children and hard for the statement that they're providing a free public education at their charging family strife, Teresa.org, she could see all the work to Cory's doing is also associated with that the Cato I at Cato, but he's the director school choice of your reason.org.
Click on the X virtual C Cory DeAngelis he could see all his writing specifically on the school choice matter she got that going then you've got here we and we got these matters going on right now because you got lawsuits going on in California. Cory God that these this money. It's not following students to charter schools which are technically public schools.
They just are not. They are not run under the public school that controlled by the school board. They still they still fall to the school. That was the way they work.
That's why your book is important. I think the school choice myths because all these topics are interesting.
The people they may not know, but California is basically saying no you can't use the voucher for charter. You can't send your kid to charter school.
Even though there really public schools.
Virtual totally going on in California right now any other year you would've been able to send your child to a charter school in here. And that money would've followed the child to the charter school here because the pandemic and because a lot of family thought that the charter schools rate were reacting better to lockdown providing better educational. The special interest groups out there in California puts for a belt to block the funding from following the children to charter schools in the time of need and just one charter school in particular already reported that 500 students were already admitted to their school where we had to put that put them back on the waitlist and felt schools already planning to serve these additional children then bill 98 went through. I which thankfully blocked the funding from involving the children and now families in California are suing the state because they didn't providing that equal opportunity in education at public charter schools which school just to try to update everybody that's going to bring Cory on just all what's happening as we speak. The federal legislation level what's happening at the state level. If in California. The precedents of these would set as well long term that's whiskey. It's dangerous here to folks. You start allowing these precedents to be said and suddenly given the state. This power, the federal side. This power any or a united kind of went with what why would they be able to do this whenever they kind of wanted to what what stops them specially not great how the Supreme Court's been coming down on this.David specific on pandemic. But what else could they say that would cause us to be Cory. There's an issue in North Carolina. What is a state court lawsuit were looking into right now about whether or not it's the right time for a group like us to file an amicus brief or not, because the issues that are being raised, but basically the if it's a group that's that's flat backed by a group of parents, bizarrely enough, who are really backed by the teachers union there suing the state if the state court level because there voucher program goes to religious schools that have ideologies they disagree with basically they're called in North Carolina are calling to end of the pipe pulled out the program ended in an place for a while there, North Carolina North Carolina opportunity scholarship program that is targeted to low income families.
You can even qualify for the doubt. Unless you are up to 133% of the Spirit's lunch, income level, which is about $53,000 for a family of four in the most recent school year and going to end this program. 12/12,000 low-income students are using this program and they're just trying to protect their monopoly here.
I mean that they make the argument out loud that they're saying that this program somehow tighten play money from public schools, but money doesn't belong to the public school money belongs to the child to all the child to wherever they're getting an education when it public school or private school. When the low-income families are only getting about half of the amount actually less than half the amount going about $4000 per voucher to take to private school if they would like to do so and to look school appointment taken away money from public schools public school site and oblate money from family, school choices return that money into the hands of the rightful owners and let the public will that won't lose any money at all if they actually serve their customers well and do a good job for these families.
Why would the family to be leaving no school that they are happy with what the reality is they're not actually happy with the public schools. And that's why they want to take their child's education dollars elsewhere collect the money doesn't belong to the system and blocks to the child. It should call them to wherever they're going out to want to mention that I teachers union in the state and national education Association, which is also the largest union in the United States.
I commented on this lovely ethical ethical thing Darcy and she said that private schools are quote unaccountable parents, and that's just laughable for her to say that private schools are directly accountable to parents.
Parents can take their money elsewhere for not doing job in this wind program and in North Carolina is one rigorous study on the peer-reviewed and published in a ERA open and found that the program is increased. Math test scores and English language arts test scores as well so let people to directly accountable to parents that they weren't by with 12,000 families be voluntarily sending their children to the school accident center government affairs. This is not a question for you Cory.

School choice myths setting the record straight on education freedom in Amazon.com's by core DeAngelis Sue preorder that thin and I got a question for court yet. Cory procedure work on this.
Just quickly, as were the claimant of an inner segment your own circle back to the accountability point that you made me many Washington DC will say well this is a state or local issues were not can act on it. Cory really think that's a copout. I mean they're sending $68 billion a year for purposes of education and now were talking about another hundred and $5 billion flowing as you as you well know that often comes with strings attached. So were trying to do is get them to have accountability for those dollars actually take strings off and send those dollars to the students as well.
I know that something that you talk a lot about just going to give you a chance to comment on those federal dollars in federal dollars to be funding the defendant edited it and and yet he going to accountable public schools right now. What happens in the public schools underperform. They don't lose their their money now so we can have much more accountability by tying it directly because they can vote with their feet at the school not doing a good job and take their money out folks again this so much talk court to follow him on Twitter I DeAngelis Cory. I also tweeted out if you follow these easy to follow to get preorder his new book.

Today online okay Jay Sekulow this Jordan site is great to be joined by Corey and get you that update again because just just for all you know just on that school issue. Back to the the matter involving the US attorney is been specifically appointed two months ago and that was announced by DOJ to look at unmasking but yesterday Atty. Gen. bar confirmed the significance of the investigation and it still ongoing so it wasn't it wasn't open and shut that because as DOJ.
Billy said you unmasking itself is not a crime that that power is given to that that the federal government officials at the highest levels on national security matters. But what happened here with the unmasking and the amount was so bizarre and so suspicious that John Durham himself asked for this other US attorney is for different US attorney to be appointed just to look into it and we fed up from Atty. Gen. bar is that it's not even just looking it those final like to couple months or just of the Obama ministration Jim Jordan said year there were 38 people who unmasked Mike Flynn's name in the Obama administration 48 different times in two months and Atty. Gen. bar said their investigation is which is still going on since a criminal investigation into cement the powers unmasking of my foot. It's a criminal investigation into Joe Biden's unmasking of Mike Flynn. They want on the present trump all the time. You know the DA in New York and this and that, on tax records which the Constitution doesn't require a Prez united states and somewhat. Some the role of the services, you must release tax returns that that you know they got theirs investigations going, but how about the fact now that we know there's a US attorney look at everybody who unmasked Mike Flynn and whether or not it was a crime because Joe bides part of that so I the it's fair to say certainly newsworthy was in every single news outlet. Yesterday there was fair as the Wall Street Journal right there so me think about that again.
The significance of that folks.
And it is not just about the 38 people unmasked by Mike Flynn, the 40 times in two months anything because of our victory is in the in the FOIA case, the federal court.
We now know that people like Samantha power and Joe Biden, and even Obama cannot hide behind it was just a staffer. Now Joe Biden's case and submit the powers case in Susan Rice case actually had their names listed and its 08. It looks at and that, as the court said if it was their name listed you, you would conclude that that was them and they cannot say.
Was it because if it even if it was a deputy was the deputy that had was high enough so to them in the federal government that it's it's like them doing so they can't hide behind that legally and you got Joe Biden Smith, the power to choose a ratio there specifically listed among and others, and you got a Prez Obama's Chief of Staff, so they plotted then that would also then apply to him as well and that comes from our case, which is taken a couple of years I made a couple of years in federal court to get on against the State Department and as it should.
Jordan I mean, there's a reason that a person has to sign these requested so that there's accountability any night this goes to the Peter Strock issue to there's a reason that his signature on the documents line to the FISA court matters, it's because we want someone to have accountability to make sure that power is not abuse this is a sacred power to be able to unmask an American citizen. In this way of the person has to be held to account.
That's the entire reason that their name is on the document, and Jordan. I also just think again just to underscore this point. This probe that John Bash is now leading to months into it. It was significant enough before John Bass got it that it had to be separated out entirely.
And of course the Atty. Gen. confirmed yesterday that it actually precedes the transition days as well. Jordan if it was significant enough at that point to separated out and it's taken two months up to this point to get to where it is now. This brings to mind Nick the, the Atty. Gen. made about justice not being ordered up like a pizza. It takes time. Jordan there is a lot of their their and your dad said earlier that he thinks that there's gonna be action prosecutorial action sometime soon. All of the indication that I see Jordan is that that's probably already taking place in the John Durham case and on the unmasking side.
I think it's coming down the line soon and by the way this goes both ways up and down the authority letter we know it goes all the way up to the principles now because the decision that was made in our case, but also because of documents we uncover people like Stephanie O'Sullivan and Michael Dempsey, who we confirmed were talking with James Klapper on the very day that all three of them made an unmasking request.
Jordan goes down the ladder is well in those those people down the ladder inside the bureaucracy that were involved in this. I believe there can be held to account as well.
Right from somebody write your phone calls 164 3110 Jerry first Rhode Island line 5 Jerry Welker Jay Sekulow liger on the air. Caller said in regards to what were talking not about the litigation think that's very hurry up and get this file in Outlook ACLJade awkward lawyer rush to get the media spotlight just to politicize as they let me leave and even I think John Bolton log he has lost his mind.
But John Bolton even said and he came out your unit with the book elected that junk in there. I this been disputed, but even he said reason he didn't come and testify that if you don't do was get a go and do that was because the house impeachment managers rushed their impeachment. Now I totally disagree with their impeachment leaf.
Of course, represented the President separate from the ACLJ but in or they are but I mean even he said that and like you said that's how the other side does things.
They rush it and what is that turn out to be nothing but a political stunt. That's the real justice we want to see real justice that we fight for the ACLJ so we take time. We all these clients have become in the last two weeks on the school issue. These parents are facing hardships for our first action will likely be Friday pass you off course be working with the parents figuring out where do we go to school board.
First we go to a state court to federal court to be little governor we go to state communal's commissioner what issue is it specifically those.
You figure all of that out then you take the necessary actions. That's what's going on here and now we know how extensive is Alameda Robert Marilyn line to final call the day Robert welcome Jay Sekulow live yeah hi Jordan I wanted to ask you with the addition of the new attorney being brought on board to investigate further.
Unmasking about Michael Flynn and on earth do you believe the guilty criminal indictment based upon any evidence.
The eternal also find out as you said above interest during the transition period of communal person pumping elected and before the inauguration, but proceeded that in the purpose of unmasking but I understand that when two people are having electronic communication. Telephone call over the phone to form the four national if one happens to be an American are supposed unmasking American unmask one person on the other end of the line to determine if there involved in some type of care effectively your enemy for an agent to ask your opinion on that. Yes, that's what specifically is no criminal indictments do we think it's more significant. I think again when you have when you starts having a US attorney say II can't do this this investigation and the unmasking what it needs to be something separate.
They don't just do it to issue a report and not Inspector General's they do it because they think that there's potential crimes and and they don't always bring charges but they at least believe that on this unmasking issue. We know it's more extensive than we thought in the criminal investigation is been going on for two months on the second issue. Yes, there is a reason that you can unmask it for actual national security issues you need to do it 300 times is are you an investor US 300 times this Job I need to do it.
