Wow and we are watching quite respect right now. I told you about this news conference. That is supposed to take place at this hour Vladimir Putin and president trump we just had a heckler. In the middle of the news media at this news conference in this I should tell you the news coverage has not started yet. But this guy I saw them holding a sign I don't know if you is saying something in particular. I assumed that he was probably doing so protesting and he still running up the mouth. Agents are escorting him out of the room right now. And it really kind of makes you wonder. Now it's being reported this is a reporter. Getting forcibly removed. From the briefing. You also have to wonder does this raise security questions about this particular event. Are they going to. Had this event as schedule is is gonna change the schedule of this. Will they do business. This is bizarre. I view do you Charles Serb Jon and remember anything like this happening. Andy at this type of events. I mean I know the scrutiny that you go under. Anytime you have an event like this where there's a news conference where the president is involved they are very very thorough. Very thorough. So in will be very interesting to see how this affects the timeline of this briefing. That is expected to happen any minute we're gonna try to go into this news conference a little bit later on first. I want to draw your attention to excellent excellent post. By. I am someone I eat is in a position to know. About the hearings that took the last lead to place last week with Peter struck. Republicans walked right into Peter struck trap here's what they missed. In America's need to know. The person who has written it is. As I said is someone in a position to know former assistant director the FBI. Referring to Chris worker backward this welcome back to the broadcast and talked user. General while it has been awhile I wanna jump writing and and get your perspective. As a person who's given your life to life to the FBI. What is going your mind when you have seen this guy. Peter struck in his antics over the last few years. I am and a whole host of former agents and current agents and employees of the FBI are disgusted. That he crime is that you can sell to the FBI and say that any attack against them them packed and yet the what the FDI didn't send us taxed at 36000 men and women in this guy didn't send those tax. They didn't do the things that he did and didn't stand up there were that arrogant smug attitude and then deny everything. I wanna get them that doubt first and foremost because there are so many good men and women the FBI they're doing their jobs every day. And they're not Peter struck the days in in the paper urged him. What are the things said that was intriguing about this and and I warned about this in advance that so many times these hearings there are simply a circus and they give the opportunity for people to events and a politically posture. But they very rarely accomplish anything of substance I love this line you put in your. Which your Brittany your Redmond getting a platform to speak to the nation and a daylong TV performance. Struck should be summarily dismissed from the FBI. Thoroughly investigated and prosecuted if the evidence shows he has broken the law. That's really what we're watching wasn't it this was a an appearance this was entertainment. It was a Barroom brawl and you're right here you here's what was wrong with this hearing from the beginning. And and someone like tree guy should have known so Matt Dickey did you know but he still wanted to cornered on. And that is that the FBI is turning what is behind Peter struck two. And they were they were telling him what he couldn't couldn't have I to ask you substantive matters and so that that would limited that that guarantee that we were gonna get any real sensitive information what would work again. Went ten hours of denials and in every woman fashioned self serving denial. Pop along so it gave them a platform a national platform. Did you do that. What one thing that it mattered though I thought that that. I think everybody has not spoken to picked up on was the arrogance in the smug that would not system Peter struck. And there was one other little Jim that came out of that and that was that. Do that through the Justice Department broad sword Nellie or war. God did not DA came through them two guys that important. I think we're gonna learn more about that later. But that it was important to note how that original. Russian dossier first came to the FBI and I think we learned that one thing out of here. And that's important information and yet the same time. You're of the belief that it's there's really not much productive. That came out of this that ultimately what needs to be dotted something needs to take place. Just through the operation of the FBI in firings. Right I mean I'm not a conspiracy theory actually spent a couple of years yeah yeah general alcohol and set an agent turned. Then went to the streets. And I know works they can crush all the testimony of someone who still on the local the FBI much closer than they can't someone it's. Retired or resigned from the FBI that not taking control of detachment slightly to take someone like that. The they have much more control over some of the bill on the lol I think now the east side. The motto that you be summarily dismissed like he should be. It bare minimum for conduct unbecoming and through misuse of their BI good equipment and the sordid situation he had a the other BI attorneys and their opinion or putting your thumb on the scale of the of the creation. Now let's talk Ed about the broader subject of the investigation self what do you expect to happen from here and that is this going to play a significant role at all. Well there's you know there's really two broad investigation. And we all know right at email investigations. Involving Hillary Clinton that that went nowhere what really truly investigated the waited that the FBI should investigate it. And then along with that running and a grandma its foundation the mission should never really got off the ground thanks to the attorney general. And then we have the trop I Russia interfere with the issue which Israeli and ST not investigation. There than what what I believe it's gonna happen with the special counsel investigation which is being conducted aggressively and and and that pretty much although some people may disagree with me pretty much in normal fashion in terms of using all the techniques available to the FBI when Abu. Properly open to investigate and I think we're both for more indictments beyond the war. And I it mean to say that because I'm a supporter of the president. But I also know that the special counsel's work or something bigger I mean my land. Pop a couple of there's what three or for the people who are quote let. So I don't expect that and that such an indictment I suspect there although there will be some US citizens. Indicted for assisting the Russian. It's to your question that the group. Now we only about thirty seconds left I'm kind of curious here. How far up do you think this goes and does this affect anybody within the trump administration. Well I don't think it reaches the president because on you know that sitting president I don't Robert Mueller noted that. This team though is that I think it would sort of report on there are over that sent a reporter congress and let them do whatever it is that they pretty much nothing. I think there's there are no possibility that someone like commissioner or trump junior could get indicted. If they built that track the question there and sat there in helping them. For example if you if you wouldn't. Can you hold on to the break Chris. Because we'd like to have to dealt us a little bit further which are with former FBI agent Chris worker. Tony minutes after 11 o'clock and Coakley radio program we start with Chris worker. Spent 44 years with the FBI about the way this particular article. That it was posted on the fox website yesterday I understand as. Received quite a response one point seven million hits in the first few hours. Lots of interest in the subject I didn't want to just jump away at the last minute since we were running out of time I wanted to spend a little climb on this. You are saying Chris worker you believe there could be indictments that touched. Actual people within the trump campaign. Related to this matter of election interference. Well maybe you're making I wanted to clarify what what I was it rated say there and it's not not and I walked to street isn't that any further indictments let you wanna see the Russians exposed these are twelve GRU agents that were indicted. And then we know that the Russians have been trying to undermine our great long long time under prudent. They would do anything to bring us down so people need to understand that keeps the I think what my friend. Often ask me is well noted that somebody in the trap campaigns really helped them out in that no matter which on Internet fantasy. The only Americans say is that the Russians are very clever. And they know how to compromise people and they've they've worked very hard at it. And it they were able to get to someone. In term campaign. And offer them dirt. In exchange or even discussions about relief on sanctions because sanctions are hurting though Burke's. They're hurting gluten are hurting bitter and that and that frustrates their efforts. Albania and in addition to wanting to bring bring them Ottawa also make them so there and staying power. So they would like to see these sanctions. Listed or or relaxed. So what I'm saying here it's been a US citizen worse say okay now I'll accept some dirt on Hillary Clinton or anything of value. In exchange for even discussions about released on sanctions. That would that would be very close espionage or be very close to assist in the Russians and espionage against the United States. By the way we're watching. A live news conference between the president and Vladimir Putin right now and he once again has denied interfering in US elections. I got a tape Chris worker this blows my mind that he can continue these denials. And you know whether this is connected or not connect to the trump campaign you craft you it knowledge what they have done. And it seems to me like even on the top level of this administration there seems seems to be a sense of denial. And a lot of followers. And and that's another thing that concerns me. Seem to to read only one to dismiss. What the Russians have done. Because they think acknowledging that immediately. Somehow implicates the president isn't that what we're talking about what complicates this. That's right on the notice. That it that's a very good analysis. They're very they're very much like to undermine this country and then of course they're gonna denied that they know we know that that's the way to game is played. They know we know and they that your reading kinda lightly and that's what they're the special gift for that. Couldn't turn out the intelligence community UST EP Denny was FSA. Any use stationed at Saint Petersburg. Right in the middle of the one the largest organized crime families and Russia but Pam got him off organization. And he is in bed with them and their whole their whole game mr. enriched themselves. And undermine the United States and that Russia back to where they were for the walk in them and so we need to understand record court so a lot. He he but he knows we now. This is pretty disturbing stuff to watch here and equal here's wanna buy my questions in I don't know what you were I can do about this Chris because. They're such polarization and politicization of this entire issue how we can tell place where were interested in facts on this. Not trying to score points for a political side I don't care what political side that is but just giving to the truth and letting the chips fall where they may. I'm with you comment censorship so much political posturing going on both sides one of policy acts. I want to transparency on the part the FBI I'm on how this investigation got started because I think that is important. We need to know whether whether chunk information what you get this whole thing started. And that would then an act on the part of the Russians and doing that. Again I trying to undermine what we're doing guys I am I'm disappointed in our lawmakers sent them out there to do their job. Not just the united Cilic what they sure that's the other day and that's just political. Partisanship. At it's worst. Policy facts and I want to see them doing their job and uncovering facts sports. And right now we're not doing are you optimistic it will get to future. I will say 1 thing I am critical of the press. The compressor staying on top of the no matter what news you watch. And I think eventually an aggressive. Media will will will push so hard. There will be announced facts that we can make up our minds it's gonna take a little while I think that the Tai chi investigation is gonna show us more. I think the the ongoing that it won't disagree with me on this but I think the ongoing Boller investigation. Short spring because I don't predicted and that anybody without slam dunk facts. The jury of twelve would all agree on. He's not he's not regard you know ticket shot in the end zone here it's gonna be hard courts actually for sports so. Ultimately then I think we'll find out what happened here it may take a little while and a lot impatient about it as it takes time. Our rights Chris worker who served 24. Years with the FBI. Former assistant FBI director thank slot and on the broadcast good to talk to you again and we have so we appreciate your perspective serve. The dark it and secure US well 46 minutes after 11 o'clock and we told there's news conference going on interestingly enough. President Donald Trump Ann's. The Russian president Vladimir Putin let's listen in as the president in his idle right now. Emphasize the importance of placing pressure on Iran. To halt its nuclear ambitions and to stop its campaign of violence. Throughout the area throughout the Middle East. As we discussed at length. The crisis in Syria. Is a complex one. Cooperation between our two countries has the potential to save. Hundreds of thousands of lives. I also made clear that the United States will not allow Iran to benefit from our successful campaign against I basis. We have just about eradicated. Iasis. In the area. We also agreed that representatives from our national Security Council's. We'll meet to follow up on all of the issues we address today and to continue the progress we have. Started right here in Helsinki. Today's meeting is only the beginning of a longer process. But we have taken the first steps toward a brighter future. And when were they. Strong dialogue. And a lot of thought. Our expectations are grounded in realism but our hopes are grounded in americans'. Desire for friendship. Cooperation. And peace and I think I can speak on behalf of Russia when I say that also. President Putin. I want to thank you again for joining me for these important discussions and we're advancing open dialogue between. Russia and the United States. Our meeting carries on a long tradition of diplomacy between. Russia the United States for the greater good of ball. And this was a very. Constructive day this was a very constructive few hours that we spent together. It's in the interest of both of our countries. To continue our conversation and we have agreed to reduce them. I'm sure will be meeting again in the future awful. And hopefully we will solve every one of the problems that we discussed today so again President Putin thank you very much. Great timing as the initial remarks wrap up from president Donald Trump medium Helsinki with. President Vladimir Putin of your thoughts on his comments and our discussion about the investigation. Stay with us. Tony four minutes before the noon hour here's Vince Coakley radio program we shared a little bit of the news conference is still going on between prison trump. And president Vladimir Putin. One of the things that was communicated earlier. No reason for this relationship to be complicated. I did say that's the president of Russia has denied meddling and yet president Donald Trump. Since they sped said they spent a good bit of time discussing. The election medley an issue. Which is kind of intriguing. A great deal of time the exact words here. Also discuss Syria and Iran. And described. Vladimir Putin just few minutes ago as a good competitor. Really. Does this mean WE. I mean I'm just curious. Under the tax line there's a lot of winners here. While for Obama. And even Steve's raw he'd be in jail. You say there's no privilege. It couldn't be more in your face really. I think prudent is written. Is Witten it to us. A a a a that's pretty interest in characterization. Frist would like to know if the trump prudent media protesters Jim Acosta. Not quite by the way somebody reminded me of the issue incident. That occurred. I think that was an Iraq. Rian President Bush was there someone threw issue. That would be the probably the equivalent of anything in history that's ever. Compared to what happened would this person who had an outburst. Right before this news conference started. Also in the tech signed Vince I don't just fall in line I believe the Russians interfere with our elections my problem. The investigation is the vast majority of the media using investigation. To tie an albatross around president. There's no evidence attached to suggest this kind of extrapolation. Let's investigate without making a political but the apps is going on that's the problem. Undermine the US. Look at your ride lighting your face how's this different from the press. FBI DOJ and every other good for nothing politician. Does that include the president. I'm just asking. What does that we know we know the Russians medal. We also only know the facts. As a biased FBI DOJ informants. No angels either side. I don't know about you but I never seen any actual proof the Russians did anything. Also it's a shame. I can't listen to the station I hate to your Vince bash our president because he is white. Can repeat that again. So actually said this. I hope this is a joke by the way I hate here Vince bash our president because he is white. My goodness. Darn Vince too bad still no way. To tie trumped the Russians keep trying buddy. You know what you're an absolute moron I don't mind telling you that you are a moron. There's not a thing that I have done to try to tie. The president anything. You were so in love. With this idol of yours. You know I should start doing I should start start making. Donald Trump crucifixes. What do you think. And selling them. Do you think this should be a great business John. Donald Trump crucifixes. And carry it around and you can kiss it. Some business capital. You wanna invest and that's posted I wonder if people would buy them. I'm serious this is really scary stuff. And serious this isn't even about Donald Trump. This again is about this borders on mental illness it really does. This Dexter resigned paid by some ruby slippers and try clicking your heels together three times and saying there's nothing like impeachment nothing like impeachment nothing like impeachment. Maybe one day your dream come true but it won't be until after 20/20. Oh my goodness. This is so scary. Tears. I am really concerned. Any case. We move on and brought to Concord and Jason good morning Jason. I they're afraid umbrella it's. I am Erik rush we can all probable. A little bit Barack Obama. Democrat ran. Are somewhat sensible will have powers say about it. But going to the Supreme Court issue with Erica and you here obviously before and it was you know mentions. That the world coming and no matter and trouble on pay and I think is that you know we elect senators and congressmen to represent their constituents. And eat there today. Who was there were in doing. Chuck. Sect seamer and he'll be the air. And they're talking about. This Democrat. Voting party. Over whatever talking about but by. They own worst bridging. There were heavily Democrat Joseph Manchin involved. If you're really supposed to be representing your constituents. In just because you're Democrat doesn't leisure I don't. Article on me and amp amp amp monarch correct. Well exactly in the same can be said for Republicans. Charlie you're currently odd odd sort of a donor because I'm all 43 years evil. Are your little latched on any senator powers and that represented in the region out of it ultimately. I try to send letters in the past. Most don't come back and you know cowboys USA for the much sort. EEE. And then I'll I am thinking you know at what point you're an election year constituents that aren't secured by. And the primaries and I looked at the conservative beauty and want to hire fire remarks. Four on idol Bardner again aren't just don't bring no matter who we truly. Or it's all about the money in politics a lot are want I think it's an. Opinion order. First our Jason let me commend you for doing there were search on these people and voting accordingly that's absolutely awesome. The problem is Jason you're not doing anything wrong the problem is there are simply are not enough principled conservatives out there. That's what this that's what this comes down to Jason that if if you looked at that list you know. They they are in mid in the minority. Among Republicans. And I still unconvinced. That millions of Republicans do not get that. And Dave this is why they're looking to Donald Trump. To accomplish something that I'm just gonna tell you right now well he's not going to pile up accomplish. He's not going to get some of these done things done simply because this party. Is a is a progressive. Party. There's progressive blue and there's progressive red. And that you know and in counseling as the many reasons why murder trial while they want Howard. Their vote for Hillary regardless why. Only towards the miners are very but also new on November the eighth 2016. Even Charles Warren. We still have people like Mitch McConnell. And there really wasn't gonna matter a whole milk thing. Then. You know he understood it thank you traditional ways to get true true conservative in the office and hopefully one of these days. It'll make a difference. OK if I can just add to Jason I do appreciate your call one of things I'm. I'm begging. And especially those of you who. You know may be ticked off at me. You know if you're really concerned about change. That's where the change needs to take place. In congress in house in the senate in the states. On local on the local level with those elections if you don't make change there. You're not going to do it out of the White House is just that simple. I don't care who it is in the White House. There's certain things that have to be accomplished elsewhere. 49 minutes after 11 o'clock Vince Coakley ran your program just got limited to go. President Vladimir Putin presented the president of the United States Donald Trump with a soccer ball. There were lots of smiles when this took place just compliments go when they're starting to take some additional questions over on the well I'm we receive text line for a bit let's go first to. All. Boom let's. First go out two day. Good morning good going to let them make mention about that that and the Helsinki heckler. That you mention and you also mentioned this year it's grown since bush. Well I don't look into it or not but it was on the nose at that time that the guy who troopers who got here in jail. Are you serious two years. That's a lot of low class and yet really. On an American legend. He got through years in Israel and you've got a great great your show regardless of what anybody. You I appreciate you caller and you felt like more or that we BP is at work or. Do you rate you know I offered like. He will be absolutely for you will be thrilled to hear. Thank you you're called David duke call again. Let this go next out to Jeff good morning Jeff. Good morning bans are you I hope it's about the tour. Stick it to go when you're really not litmus sincerest my style. You know did you music and this morning on my heart growers and yeah. They're the most. You know not so clip that you can't even understand how irrational and you talked about change before the break America. I'm not planned change has left the train station in New Orleans down the track at a hundred model now if you don't like the way it looks. And what is that change. You want to criticize any pangs start with a Supreme Court nominees that the trial trying has done that you don't like. No wait a second what are what are you talking about change. And I am really thoroughly confused here. Oh you who you certainly are. So what's your point again. By. Hole so I guess he's saying that changes happening. With the trump train and it's delivering. Paradise for everybody. Oh I think that's what it's a that's. Over on the tech slide Vince is always Hillary and everyone knows it. You know. And I think this techsters onto something this next when Vince I think some of these people are just trying to get a rise out of view. Your responses are pretty funny where do you intend for them to beard and I'm glad seat I try to turn this into into entertainment. Because sometimes. Some of these things of the six letters so outrageous like the Hillary comments I mean. You cannot have a functioning brains and believe I would ever support Hillary but you really can't. And you have to be. There's a real problem there pretty aired get a bus to insist Russia stops interfering with the others while we do it. And he is don't you think. Also a lot on the line here. Just what in the name forward to the rescue is due to influence our election I'm waiting goat trump too this is part of what's. We were talking about just few minutes ago with Chris worker. They're people who cannot separate Donald Trump from this investigation. It's ironic. Because this is on the surface a counterintelligence. Investigation. That's what it's supposed to be. Yet there's this visceral reaction near your response there's nothing to this Russian medley thing. Because there's a concern this is gonna go to trial. Doesn't have to. A crucifix because people support the president you're a dumb us. I mean seriously. UC DC the the worship out there. No this is not about let me give you can give you give me just give you a little hint. This is not about self reporting. The up residence this is about I don't lies seeing the president this is about warship being done president. There's a difference. That's well. That's well. There's the trumped arrangement syndrome on one side so it makes perfect sense and the other you have the ones that are still in love they've lost perspective. That is a very insightful text. Very insightful text. Let's go right through JR in Fort Mill good morning GR. There are other that you but here. And use. White more than. What. Nobody has anything that what is this about having something against him this is a matter of we ask you this did you support everything George Bush did. Oh did you support everything George H. W. Bush did. Did you support everything that Ronald Reagan did. Most likely. These. Very different. Acts. This is. Well there you go. Is this is a matter here's what it comes down to for media are it comes down to a matter of principles and values that are to be. Are never changing. And win those are violated in some way I have a problem I don't care who we is. For instance let me ask you JR if the president lies. Should we just. Just rock continued to rock rod Donald Trump. Nobody I didn't want. And so he's supposed to lot. Certainly want to start line at all but surely all of this yeah. Please see if we're doing that then I I. Let's just give up on the holding JR because of you don't have integrity you got you don't have much of anything. That's that's my concern and did he not did he not tell is that he's not a politician. Okay. And if that's true then he shouldn't behave like the other politician GR I do appreciate your call do you stay in touch let's talk again because that's. That's part of my frustration this guy is not what he claimed to be and yet. What do you do. A great day anyway.
