    Garland Grilled on Hunter Investigation, and Russell Brand's Defenders, with Jim Geraghty and Maddy Kearns | Ep. 631

    enSeptember 20, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • AG Merrick Garland questioned over Hunter Biden investigationDespite concerns over his handling of the Hunter Biden investigation, AG Merrick Garland appeared evasive and potentially dishonest during a hearing, with guests suggesting he may have protected Biden and that his appointment of a special counsel lacked authority in key jurisdictions.

      During a hearing on Capitol Hill, Attorney General Merrick Garland faced tough questions from House GOP about the Hunter Biden investigation. Garland, who is under scrutiny for his handling of the case, appeared to be evasive and dishonest, according to Megyn Kelly and her guests. They discussed how Garland appointed David Weiss, the US attorney for the district of Delaware, as special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden, despite Weiss' history of not bringing charges against him. The guests suggested that Garland may have been protecting Hunter Biden and that Weiss' lack of authority in California, where some of the most serious allegations against Hunter Biden occurred, prevented him from bringing charges. They also pointed out that US attorneys often seek permission from the attorney general to bring cases in jurisdictions where they don't have authority, and that such permission is usually granted unless there is an extraordinary reason to deny it. The guests argued that Garland's handling of the Hunter Biden investigation raises serious questions about his honesty and competence.

    • Hunter Biden investigation: Questions of independence and decision-makingThe investigation into Hunter Biden's financial dealings is complex, with questions surrounding the independence and decision-making process of US Attorney David Weiss and Attorney General Merrick Garland. The lack of clear communication and expired statutes of limitations have hindered prosecution, fueling accusations of political interference.

      The handling of the investigation into Hunter Biden's financial dealings raises questions about the independence and decision-making process of US Attorney David Weiss and Attorney General Merrick Garland. The lack of clear communication and the expiration of the statute of limitations in California and DC have led to the inability to prosecute Hunter Biden on the most serious charges. The situation has fueled accusations of political interference and obfuscation from both sides. It's crucial to understand the circumstances surrounding the investigation and the roles of the key players to gain a clearer perspective on this complex issue.

    • Inconsistent handling of Hunter Biden investigationMerrick Garland's handling of Hunter Biden investigation was unclear and inconsistent, with U.S. Attorney David Weiss initially having limited authority and later being given special counsel status, leading to confusion about the reasons and scope of the investigation.

      The handling of the investigation into Hunter Biden's affairs by Merrick Garland and U.S. Attorney David Weiss has been inconsistent and unclear. Initially, Weiss was given authority to prosecute but not special counsel status, and he was said to have claimed both that he had full authority and that he didn't. Later, Weiss was given special counsel status, leading to confusion about the reasons for the change. The investigation involves potential criminal behavior and scandals, and it seems that Weiss wanted to pursue only certain charges that would result in fines or plea bargains. The situation raises questions about the independence and transparency of the investigation. Additionally, Garland's initial assurances that he would not interfere in the investigation contrast sharply with his later decision to make Weiss a special counsel.

    • Merrick Garland's Professional Distance During Testimony on Hunter Biden's Tax AffairsDespite concerns about expired statutes of limitations, Merrick Garland displayed a professional distance and seemed unaware or unconcerned during testimony on Hunter Biden's tax investigation, raising questions about transparency and accountability in the Justice Department.

      During Merrick Garland's testimony before the House Oversight Committee, he displayed a level of professional distance and contempt towards questions regarding the expired statute of limitations in the investigation of Hunter Biden's tax affairs. Garland suggested that he had left the matter to the discretion of the Trump-appointed prosecutor, David Weiss. Despite the implications of allowing statutes of limitations to expire, Garland seemed unaware or unconcerned about the matter. His calm demeanor and assertion of executive privilege-like privilege over his conversations with other DOJ officials blur the lines between his moderate persona and potential partisanship. The incident raises concerns about the transparency and accountability of the Justice Department's handling of investigations involving high-profile individuals and families.

    • Congressman Jim Jordan questions why Hunter Biden tax investigation was slow-walkedThe investigation into Hunter Biden's tax affairs related to Burisma income was delayed, allowing the statute of limitations to expire during the Trump administration. Suspicions of partisanship and election interference have arisen due to the lack of transparency and answers from the DOJ.

      The discussion revolves around the investigation into Hunter Biden's tax affairs related to his work with Burisma and how the statute of limitations expired during the Trump administration. Jim Jordan, a congressman, questioned why the investigation was slow-walked, allowing the statute of limitations to lapse for the tax years dealing with Burisma income. It's suggested that the investigation was deliberately delayed due to its potential connection to the White House. The lack of transparency and answers from the Justice Department, particularly from the appointee in charge of the investigation, David Weiss, has fueled suspicions of partisanship and election interference. The discussion also highlights the irony that members of the Obama administration were reportedly uncomfortable with Hunter Biden's involvement with Burisma due to the potential for perceived conflicts of interest. The overall sentiment expressed is that the handling of this investigation has eroded public trust in the DOJ.

    • Hunter Biden's business dealings raise ethical concernsJoe Biden's son's business dealings blurred the line between personal and political influence, creating ethical concerns and public perception of corruption

      The business dealings of Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, raise serious ethical concerns, even if it can't be definitively proven that Joe Biden changed any policies in exchange for favors. The issue is particularly problematic given Joe Biden's public stance against corruption and bribery. Hunter Biden's access to his father and the family name was his only value to his business partners, and this blurred the line between his personal dealings and his father's influence in federal policy. The situation reached a critical mass in the 2022 election, with Trump and other Republican candidates capitalizing on the perceived corruption and Joe Biden's advanced age. The mainstream media has started to cover the story more extensively, and polls show that a wide majority of Americans view Joe Biden as both too old and corrupt. The hypocrisy of the situation, with Democrats pushing for impeachments and indictments against Republicans, adds to the public's discontent.

    • Investigation into Trump benefits him with free publicityCritics argue that the ongoing Trump investigation creates a victim narrative, disproportionate sentencing fuels this perception, and the change in investigation status raises questions.

      The ongoing investigation into Trump and the appointment of a special counsel is perceived by some as benefiting Trump more than harming him. Critics argue that it creates a narrative of him being a victim of a partisan conspiracy, leading to free publicity and interviews where he can explain why he's being targeted. The disproportionate sentencing of some individuals involved also fuels this perception. Additionally, the change in the investigation's status from a regular prosecution to a special counsel investigation within a short time frame raises questions. Some politicians, like Jim Jordan, are asking why this designation was necessary when Garland had previously stated that he was fully empowered. The lowering of the dress code in the Senate by Chuck Schumer to accommodate John Fetterman's casual attire has also sparked controversy, with Marjorie Taylor Greene criticizing the move. Overall, the investigation and its handling are causing division and confusion, with some believing it is necessary and others seeing it as a political ploy.

    • Politicians Dressing Casually in the Senate: A Loss of Civility and FormalityDressing appropriately for serious jobs is crucial, as it sets a professional tone and can impact perceptions and outcomes.

      The recent trend of politicians dressing casually in the Senate, as seen with Senator Fetterman, represents a loss of civility and formality that matters. This vanity move by Fetterman, who wants to be remembered for changing the dress code, is symbolic of a larger disintegration of standards in how people present themselves and conduct themselves in professional settings. This can have serious consequences, as illustrated by a personal anecdote about a visa denial due to an embassy employee's inappropriate attire. The importance of dressing appropriately for serious jobs cannot be overstated. Despite some arguing that people should not be judged by what they wear, it is important to consider a person's record and actions, such as Fetterman's missed votes in the Senate due to depression treatment and his reported unhappiness with the chamber's proceedings.

    • Senator Fetterman's Capability to Effectively Represent PennsylvaniaConcerns about Fetterman's health, communication struggles, and apparent disdain for the job raise questions about his ability to make a significant impact for Pennsylvania residents as their Senator.

      Senator Bob Casey's colleague, John Fetterman, raises valid concerns about Fetterman's ability to effectively represent the people of Pennsylvania in the US Senate due to his health issues, communication struggles, and apparent disdain for the job. Fetterman, who had a stroke and deals with depression, seems unhappy in his role and struggles to articulate his points clearly. Despite being legally eligible for the position, questions arise as to whether he is truly capable of making a significant impact for the state and its residents. The lack of clarity in his messaging and apparent frustration with the job have led some to question whether it would be better for both Fetterman and the people of Pennsylvania if he stepped down and was replaced by another candidate.

    • Uncertainty surrounds Biden and Fetterman's political futureConcerns about Biden and Fetterman's health and ability to effectively carry out their duties add uncertainty to the political landscape, potentially impacting Democratic control of key institutions

      The political landscape is filled with uncertainty, particularly regarding the health and ability of key figures like President Joe Biden and Senator John Fetterman to effectively carry out their duties. The concerns raised about their capabilities refute the argument that the Republicans are ageist in their criticisms, as similar issues have been raised about Fetterman despite his youth. The president's recent struggles with speaking coherently at the UN have added to the concerns about his ability to complete his term, with a CBS News poll indicating that a majority of Americans are unsure if he will finish it. The potential impact of this uncertainty on the political landscape is significant, as the Democrats control many important institutions and the lack of clear alternatives could lead to uncertainty and instability.

    • Biden's staff overmanaging him contributes to perceived weaknessesBiden's staff's overprotective behavior reinforces a fragile image, contributing to his declining approval ratings and losses in the 2024 campaign. Biden needs to appear more in command and take more risks to regain support.

      President Joe Biden's handling by his staff, who are overmanaging him and keeping him isolated, is contributing to his perceived weaknesses in the 2024 campaign. Maureen Dowd, a New York Times opinion columnist, noted that Biden seems nervous and timid, and his staff's overprotective behavior reinforces the impression of a fragile chief executive. This issue, coupled with Biden's age and the corruption allegations against him, has led to his declining approval ratings and losses in the generic ballot to potential Republican contenders. To address this, Biden needs to start looking more in command and his staff should allow him to take more risks and engage more with the public. However, it's important to note that Biden's staff's behavior may not be entirely their fault, as they may be trying to mitigate his gaffes and cognitive impairments, which have become more apparent as he has aged. Regardless, the current approach is not working, and a change is needed if Biden hopes to secure a second term.

    • Missing Opportunities in Biden's UN Address and RFKJ's Safety ConcernsBiden's UN address missed chances to discuss his stance on China, Ukraine war, and future actions. RFKJ's safety request for Secret Service protection was denied, increasing potential risks and fueling conspiracy theories.

      The focus on President Biden's health and delivery in his speeches overshadows important discussions about his foreign policy and other significant issues. The commentary on his UN address missed an opportunity to delve into topics like his approach to China, the Ukraine war, and his next steps. Additionally, RFKJ, a Democratic primary challenger, has received threats and requested Secret Service protection, which has been denied. The incident on Friday involving a man with guns and fake ID claiming to be part of Kennedy's security detail highlights the potential danger and the need for protection. The Biden administration's decision to not provide protection to RFKJ could lead to negative consequences and fuel conspiracy theories. Biden's avoidance of morning events before 10 AM due to energy levels further fuels speculation about his health and capabilities. Overall, the conversation should shift from personal attacks and health concerns to substantive policy discussions.

    • The disconnect between politicians' public image and realityDespite Joe Biden's old-fashioned image, his inconsistent schedule and offensive behavior have been consistent themes. Michelle Obama's potential nomination faces challenges due to her disinterest in politics and lack of qualifications. Ted Cruz's suggestion of Michelle Obama as a VP pick for Biden raises potential implications.

      The perception of Joe Biden as an old-fashioned dealmaker and empathetic figure does not align with the reality of his behavior and actions. His inability to maintain a normal schedule and tendency to offend people have been a consistent theme throughout his career. The idea of Michelle Obama as a potential Democratic nominee is a popular one, but her disinterest in politics and lack of qualifications make it a less practical option. The discussion also touched on Ted Cruz's suggestion of Michelle Obama as a potential VP pick for Biden and the potential implications of such a move. Overall, the conversation highlighted the disconnect between the public image of politicians and their true character.

    • Misconceptions about the Presidency and Vice Presidential RumorsThe presidency involves tough decisions with no clear answers, and potential VP candidate's past controversies could impact their political future.

      The presidency is a challenging job with difficult decisions that don't always have clear answers. The idea that it's just about being a crowd pleaser or entertaining is a misconception. Regarding potential vice presidential candidates, there have been rumors about Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota, who is popular and telegenic, but there have been reports of an affair with Corey Lewandowski. If proven true, this could be a problem for her in Republican politics due to the double standard regarding infidelity. The situation is still unfolding, and it remains to be seen how the Republican Party will respond. The discussion also touched upon the challenges Biden faces in unifying the Democratic Party and the ongoing debate within the party.

    • Politician's ambiguous denial of affair raises questionsAuthentic denials are crucial in politics, especially during infidelity allegations. Ambiguous responses can damage reputation and trust.

      The way a public figure responds to allegations of infidelity can significantly impact their authenticity and political prospects. During a discussion, it was noted that a female politician's denial of an affair with a man lacked clarity and authenticity, potentially damaging her reputation and raising questions about her commitment to family values. The speaker also pointed out a potential double standard, as some male politicians, like Donald Trump, are perceived to have less repercussions for similar behavior. The politician's ambiguous denial was criticized as an easy way out, and it was suggested that a clear and unequivocal denial would be more effective in quelling rumors and maintaining public trust. Overall, the conversation underscored the importance of authenticity and consistency in politics, especially when personal conduct is at issue.

    • Political rumors and allegationsThe political landscape involves complex issues of power, consent, and reputation, requiring nuanced discussions and careful consideration in every unique situation.

      The political landscape continues to grapple with complex issues of power, consent, and reputation. In the case of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, rumors of an extramarital affair with Corey Lewandowski have circulated, casting doubt on her potential for a spot on the Republican ticket. Meanwhile, allegations of sexual misconduct against Russell Brand have dominated headlines, with some defending his right to respond before facing consequences. These cases highlight the importance of nuanced discussions and the need to balance the importance of due process with the seriousness of these allegations. Ultimately, it's crucial to remember that every situation is unique and requires careful consideration.

    • Societal Responses to Allegations of Inappropriate Behavior: A Double Standard?Society's inconsistent reactions to allegations of inappropriate behavior, particularly involving minors and celebrities, highlights the need for clearer ethical standards and a shift away from focusing solely on criminal behavior.

      The discussion revolves around the inconsistency in societal responses to allegations of inappropriate behavior, particularly involving minors and celebrities. Some people are criticizing the hypocrisy of those who defend a celebrity's actions when it comes to consenting to sexual relationships, but are outraged by his involvement in hormonal treatments for transgender minors. The credibility of the allegations against the celebrity, who has a history of promiscuity and substance abuse, was also discussed. It was noted that there seems to be a shift in societal attitudes towards sexual ethics, where only criminal behavior is considered unacceptable, and that there used to be a category for taking advantage of vulnerable individuals. The mother of the 16-year-old girl involved in one of the allegations was quoted as expressing her powerlessness due to the legality of the situation. The conversation also touched upon the media's role in reporting on such cases and the potential motivations of those defending the celebrity.

    • Russell Brand's past behavior and alleged actionsIt's crucial to consider all facts and evidence before forming an opinion on serious accusations, and it's essential to approach them with care and consideration, regardless of political leanings.

      The alleged actions of Russell Brand, even if some specific accusations are not proven, do not excuse his past behavior, which has been deemed immoral and awful by many. The fact that some people celebrated his alleged actions and defended him despite serious accusations is concerning. It's important to remember that the accusers and the accused both have the potential to be truthful or deceitful. The media environment, particularly social media, often rewards instant judgment and hot takes, but it's crucial to consider all the facts and evidence before forming an opinion. As a conservative or right-leaning individual, there is no need to defend or "own" Russell Brand when there are many honorable, respectful men on our side. The seriousness of these accusations should not be downplayed, and it's essential to approach them with care and consideration.

    • Accountability Beyond Legal Proceedings: Harvey Weinstein Scandal and Sexual MisconductConsider ethical standards, believe victims, and reflect on values when dealing with sexual misconduct cases, regardless of evidence or public figure's political stance.

      The discussion revolved around the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the need for accountability beyond legal proceedings. The speakers expressed concern about the lack of evidence that often prevents sexual misconduct cases from being prosecuted. They emphasized the importance of considering ethical standards and believing victims, regardless of the availability of concrete evidence or the public figure's political stance. They also mentioned the challenges women face when reporting such incidents and the potential backlash they may face. The speakers urged listeners to reflect on their values and consider the impact on their daughters and future generations. Additionally, they announced upcoming interviews with Dan Bongino and Michael Wolff.

    BREAKING: Donald Trump Survives Assassination Attempt at Rally, with Rich Lowry, Buck Sexton, Eric Bolling, Dennis Prager, Bill Stanton, and Jesse Kelly

    Megyn Kelly covers the shocking breaking news of former President Donald Trump surviving an assassination attempt at a campaign rally today in Pennsylvania. Megyn brings the latest information - that Trump was hit with a bullet in his right ear, was bloodied, but got up and fist-pumped to the crowd before leaving the stage, and that he has now been cleared to leave the hospital. Also, that one person in the crowd behind Trump died as a result of the gunfire, at least another rallygoer is in serious condition, and the shooter was shot dead as well. Megyn is joined by Rich Lowry, Buck Sexton, Eric Bolling, Bill Stanton, Jesse Kelly, and Dennis Prager to talk about the massive ramifications of this horrific event, the overheated rhetoric that has surrounded Trump from the left, the security failures that surely will be studied, the political fallout, how this could have been so much worse if the bullet came just inches in another direction, the attempt to bothsides political violence by the left and media, what happens next in the campaign and in America, and more.

    Biden's Rough "Big Boy" Night, Elites' Whisper Campaign, and Trump's Polling Advantage, with Michael Knowles and Spencer Kimball | Ep. 836

    Megyn Kelly is joined by Michael Knowles, host of The Daily Wire's "Michael Knowles Show,” to talk about Biden’s “big boy” press conference last night, his confusion about Zelensky and Putin and Trump and Harris, how the elites and establishment want him out but he won't listen, why Biden won't leave the race, how the press conference wasn't bad enough to force him to leave, what the establishment media is focused on now, prominent left-wing elites leaking to the media instead of publicly making a statement urging Biden to step aside, Biden's odd habit of whispering suddenly, and more. Then Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, joins to discuss the impact the debate had on the polling in certain states like Georgia and Arizona, the dire polling averages for the Biden campaign right now, why Biden's depressed support in New York and California matter, what states Biden and Trump need to prioritize, if a new Democratic candidate replacing Biden could beat Trump, the importance of name recognition in polling, and more.
