00:03:34 – on garbage its total crap around us for
00:03:37 – our Beauty you can't give him that
00:03:39 – why because it's classified information
00:03:42 – I I honestly I can't even verify whether
00:03:45 – there's a what what what I can't even
00:03:48 – name verify whether the two page
00:03:49 – document exists i mean here's the deal
00:03:51 – up what I'm telling you is that there is
00:03:54 – no craziness in Russia there was no
00:03:57 – meeting in broad this was opposition
00:04:00 – research done by some campaign or
00:04:02 – operative that somehow leaked out
00:04:05 – it is not an intelligence document colon
00:04:07 – has never been the prod right and all of
00:04:10 – this stuff is it isn't even going to
00:04:12 – print in New York
00:04:13 – time we get but i'm going to get bread
00:04:15 – roll and willie Geist time or two things
00:04:18 – with all due respect if you can't
00:04:20 – comment on her and it's classified but
00:04:22 – you're at this point taking it down in
00:04:25 – very vivid language so our actual
00:04:27 – violation of what the rules now saying
00:04:29 – that kind of time no you can ask me
00:04:31 – aight you can ask me whether these
00:04:35 – salacious details were discussed and I
00:04:37 – can answer no all right but this has
00:04:40 – been around for awhile i prefer about it
00:04:42 – for months ago right and it had a fair
00:04:44 – amount of detail and we've been chasing
00:04:46 – it a lot of other news agencies have
00:04:48 – been as well never been able to close
00:04:50 – the book on its front we did take it
00:04:54 – Richard Engel and I've been working on
00:04:55 – it we did take it at one point very
00:04:57 – senior American intelligence official
00:04:59 – that I have no idea that there's
00:05:02 – something like this going on and what is
00:05:04 – not even reportable because we don't
00:05:06 – have the verification of the various
00:05:08 – charges that were there so it's been
00:05:12 – around and a number of organizations
00:05:14 – have been looking at it for some time I
00:05:16 – was surprised when I showed up in this
00:05:18 – form when they got to the Intel agencies
00:05:21 – and they included in a report to the
00:05:24 – president without any kind of conclusion
00:05:27 – about the veracity of it so i think from
00:05:29 – the from the temporal organization point
00:05:31 – of view that they've got a legitimate
00:05:32 – claim here now Willie right there was
00:05:35 – there anything in that presentation from
00:05:37 – the Intel community to present
00:05:38 – electronic the other day that suggested
00:05:40 – there was some potentially compromising
00:05:42 – personal information that rang true to
00:05:45 – the president-elect if you recognize any
00:05:47 – of it and if so how concerned was about
00:05:49 – it so I I didn't hear any of those crazy
00:05:53 – things that are in that report and i can
00:05:56 – tell you you last night when this came
00:05:58 – out I mean look he is he would tell you
00:06:02 – the same thing I'm telling you that this
00:06:03 – is total complete garbage about him
00:06:06 – personally it's embarrassing it's
00:06:08 – disgusting
00:06:10 – it's not true and unfortunately just
00:06:13 – gotta dye think y'all understand we
00:06:15 – would cover every second of politics for
00:06:17 – the last year and a half I just have to
00:06:19 – say unfortunately I have to save it into
00:06:22 – the foot of the folks here just starting
00:06:24 – to get used
00:06:24 – to this kind of creating this comes up
00:06:28 – that's just not you know you get used to
00:06:30 – it in your daily life you must become
00:06:31 – teflon to and say okay what are we going
00:06:33 – to do here's another thing here's the
00:06:34 – game planet right you know i was a
00:06:36 – president elected the intelligence
00:06:38 – agencies i want you to run this down and
00:06:40 – cleared up and presents the public with
00:06:43 – a clean slate
00:06:45 – if it's not true if it's all that you
00:06:47 – say that is why doesn't he told the
00:06:49 – internal agency I want to run this down
00:06:52 – to the last period and any of the
00:06:54 – statements that have been made and make
00:06:56 – a clear to the public like FBI director
00:06:59 – coma did was the question about the
00:07:01 – emails for Hillary Clinton they took
00:07:04 – three you're gonna be in there they came
00:07:05 – out and said there's nothing to it but
00:07:08 – we're going to be there in nine days and
00:07:10 – in the release that President electron
00:07:13 – put out on friday in the last paragraphs
00:07:17 – we say that and he said we're going to
00:07:19 – do a full examination of this entire
00:07:22 – episode we're gonna have a report in 90
00:07:25 – days after taking office to this issue
00:07:27 – and potentially what our reaction needs
00:07:30 – to be based on the things that if we've
00:07:33 – been talking about over the last several
00:07:36 – weeks then we're going to do that and
00:07:38 – what he's going to do that its president
00:07:39 – of the United States but as to the
00:07:41 – BuzzFeed mammal this is not an intel
00:07:45 – document the intelligence community
00:07:47 – isn't hand you know you all know when
00:07:49 – you see these dotted weight actually
00:07:51 – it's not even classified its opposition
00:07:54 – research that republican guard against
00:07:56 – Donald Trump generated and then
00:07:59 – Democrats running against Donald Trump
00:08:01 – generated Williams a quick question
00:08:03 – though you're out of your window we
00:08:04 – apologize
00:08:05 – yes our quite right though you have to
00:08:06 – run through it sounds like based on what
00:08:08 – you said not just the BuzzFeed report
00:08:09 – the CNN report is also wrong as I was
00:08:12 – just saying that there was no t page
00:08:13 – summary presented to the president-elect
00:08:15 – I'm like I can't listen I can't get into
00:08:18 – that all i can tell you is that the
00:08:21 – BuzzFeed mamo the distillations details
00:08:25 – in that memo all of those things are
00:08:27 – total phony baloney garbage it never
00:08:30 – happened
00:08:31 – it isn't true and the one who created
00:08:34 – the BuzzFeed
00:08:35 – the buzzfeed article and i think most of
00:08:41 – what CNN talking about i don't know i'm
00:08:43 – not watching a 24-7 is based on this
00:08:46 – document write this opposition research
00:08:48 – guy that is is based on nothing that's
00:08:51 – not true
00:08:52 – Ryan and we're stuck with it but we have
00:08:54 – cancer it all right I'm going to
00:08:55 – actually stick with you on this one for
00:08:57 – now because I i agree thank you very
00:08:59 – much and you have to go i'll just said
00:09:01 – you're right i'm greatly president thank
00:09:03 – you mom i agree you and angle and I mean
00:09:06 – everybody should work on stories that
00:09:09 – look like they they're worth looking
00:09:11 – into and we should continue to do so and
00:09:14 – when you can triple assortment and you
00:09:15 – have evidence then you have a story
00:09:17 – right now there's no story here and i
00:09:20 – think the people who are going with it
00:09:22 – at this point and even if we continue
00:09:24 – this conversation were part of it but
00:09:26 – the two outlets that are actually going
00:09:27 – with this and releasing it are
00:09:29 – continuing to make the same mistakes
00:09:31 – that they have made in the run-up to
00:09:32 – this election which is a letter bias and
00:09:35 – get in the way of actually finding out
00:09:36 – what facts are and putting them out
00:09:38 – there is the whole thing has felt wrong
00:09:41 – from the beginning of the show
00:09:43 – well are you questioning Williams with a
00:09:46 – good question though
00:09:47 – but I do believe that if there were
00:09:49 – known to be a summary that he could have
00:09:51 – said that like I don't think he used to
00:09:53 – felony that we have which is that we
00:09:55 – want to say to cut he can say that this
00:09:57 – is the first time he heard about it was
00:09:59 – last night
00:10:00 – first time he knew about any of this was
00:10:02 – last night he also said he was there and
00:10:06 – the meeting he the question is you know
00:10:09 – if you were there in the meeting and you
00:10:12 – were not given something I think you
00:10:15 – would not be violating any laws i think
00:10:18 – i was never got with you everywhere I
00:10:19 – don't
00:10:20 – that would be marvelous I think I think
00:10:21 – that's the introduced into your idea
00:10:23 – because he was able to say we were not
00:10:25 – told about it right but he did not say
00:10:28 – right
00:10:29 – I never read any what Michael
00:10:30 – possibility that was a two-page
00:10:32 – distillation of something it didn't have
00:10:34 – a lot of information that it that was
00:10:36 – presented me with that I don't know you
00:10:37 – don't know this was around in a tertiary
00:10:39 – way for so long it's hard for me to
00:10:42 – believe that the Trump campaign had not
00:10:44 – heard these stories as well over the
00:10:46 – weekend i was with a corporate ppl who
00:10:49 – had been talking about something and
00:10:51 – then he said to me what about the
00:10:52 – Russian story and have all these kind of
00:10:54 – quote details and I said how to use
00:10:57 – early said it's around a lot so it's not
00:11:00 – something that just suddenly popped up
00:11:03 – I'm not sending out there in the
00:11:04 – underground for a couple of months
00:11:06 – this is not unusual in a presidential
00:11:08 – campaign with this kind of stuff pops
00:11:10 – out and Richard granite down hard in
00:11:13 – Europe and other places and has never
00:11:14 – been able to tie it off as this one
00:11:17 – yeah some broth thank you very much
