7:30 am
of komi. in particular and i think that's where the investigation is heading and i think all of these other efforts to mr recht from the central issue are really not going to work at the end of the day money as a republican does all of this concern you with what's going on. well you know the challenge when there are stories or allegations for example regarding the two f.b.i. agents peter struck was one of them who were expressing points of view about donald trump during the campaign you know it obviously i think the right action was taken to remove those people the challenge is it lends credence to this narrative that there was this systemic bias against donald trump now whether you believe that or not there are some who can make that argument and this kind of gives them fodder for the fire at the end of the day i don't think it's particularly productive for republicans to be assaulting the credibility of the f.b.i. the f.b.i. is the finest law enforcement the finest law enforcement agencies in the entire
7:31 am
world i don't think that gets them particularly far but i do think that there will be an increasing chorus of people who will express their concerns whether it's about the f.b.i. or about the mall or investigation generally and to the extent that these kinds of things are in the water it makes things that much more complicated and that much harder for robert muller eight to draw his investigation to a close but b. to draw to a close in a way that all sides are going to say what happened and the results of it are both impartial as well as as should be respected concerning that six trimly are just to add to that i think that's extremely well said what loni just said and eloquently stated the only thing i would add to it is the notion that the f.b.i. there's systemic and bias inside the f.b.i. when both komi and muller are lifelong republicans just seems to me to be a little bit of a stretch and i just think it's kind of i think they're republicans are divided i
7:32 am
think there's a group of republicans like lanny who are very responsible here and want to get the facts and that's what we all want at the end of the day we just really want the facts and then i think there are another group of republicans like maybe new news and a few others who are kind of a little bit like inspector clouseau here and going down a lot of rabbit holes with a lot of kind of these half baked theories to discredit the f.b.i. and i think it's very harmful to the country very harmful the republican party ultimately consuming the reported of the the president and the porn star. people are wondering how the event jellicoe skins and can continue to support mr trump and tony perkins head of the very conservative christian family research council says a van jelling bills are willing to give trump a do over on bad behavior like that alleged fear as long as he delivers on policy. connie is they have parker see here. yeah i mean look it's certainly bothersome the
7:33 am
notion that you would be able to basically i think the interview said in the interview i think mr perkins said that the president gets a mulligan on this one and i you know that's not a slave the way that i see it from a personal behavior point of view but this brings to light larry a very important point which is that for many conservatives the behavior or the nature of the way president trump conducts himself has been separated or divorced from the policy and i think at the end of the day that is something which is a very important distinction because while people will continue to talk about the character and about the things that the president has done in his personal life the reality is what we're all left with as a country is actually a pretty conservative policy agenda whether on regulation or on on health care on taxes and certainly on judicial appointments so you know people will try to separate that out i personally am troubled by the idea that you can separate the two but at the end of the day we've got to look at what we're left with thank you
7:34 am
both very much one in julian we always love the new on. thanks larry thanks larry turning now to the world economic forum happening in davos switzerland donald trump's the first sitting united states president to attend the form since bill clinton nearly two decades ago what my president drum book published in davos and we're potential pitfalls exists then for those two of them of that with maggie the chief economist of the phoenix group. is in new york again how's it going to play what do you expect through the president's visit doubles so i think the president goes there in part because he's probably long wanted to and this is a big opportunity also i think it's a muscle flex for him in many of his supporters the notion that a lot in the global elite who are kind of fetid infecting each other at davos had expected him to be. bit of more problematic for them than he turned out to be and
7:35 am
he wants to celebrate what he sees as his successes which would otherwise be known to us in economics as the high points of the us macro economy and in fairness many of the basic metrics of the us macro economy are quite healthy now good stock market performance if not every day most days at a usually large number of days pretty good economic growth and some major perhaps overdue rationalization of some regulation along with a lot of controversy and i think he wants to kind of celebrate himself and try to get these people who were doubters to celebrate having record mags how's the american first idea going to play so look you don't go to an international organization and tell them that you love yourself more than you love them and that you think they should all love you more than they love themselves and be taken terribly seriously that appeals to people who feel like they're part of the group that would be first and it's just as unappealing to everyone else as you might imagine and this is of course a dedicated multilateralist jim berry and so coming there with a unilateralist sort of self-love message is
7:36 am
a bit risky. on the eve of his departure he signed an order slapping tariffs on solar panels and washing machine imports was the implication of that. so these are both pretty minor most folks think from a macro economic perspective it's a little bit of a test case to see what happens and what results occur i think it's very important to watch how it plays out kind of behind the scenes and in various editorials and newspapers it's always fun and beneficial in the short term to kind of unilaterally bluster and make self approving moves the big test of these moves is whether other people retaliate and sort of what happens when the dust settles my guess is we won't see an immediate retaliation but it will further chill the reception added already somewhat snow covered and cold davos switzerland canadian prime minister to go use davos to announce that canada and ten other countries will reach an agreement on a trade pact this is sensitive to turn specific from pull out of that you think the
7:37 am
timing of to those announcement was a slap at trump is i think plenty of things going on at davos are there to position davos and its leadership as sort of the hundred eighty degree alternative to donald trump i think justin trudeau has sort of had that position in north america to some extent being the sort of young suave of open it immigrant welcoming leader juxtaposed to trump's relatively more stern approach to immigration and relatively more advanced age so i do think there's some of that love to t.p. was an american program to counteract chinese global influence we pulled out of it and i think people are trying to say that there is a future for multilateralism without america and that is very much an attempt to reassure themselves and also pop their own chests out when they know that donald trump is coming there for a victory lap whether or not they particularly wanted to play host to that particular event. true maintains that the united states has been the victim of
7:38 am
globalization is he right i don't know if there's a single us effect of united states has gained much more than we've lost overall as an economy that being said trump and many other critics have rightly pointed out that globalization and trade have both winners and losers and we've had concentrations and who are the great beneficiaries and they have tended to be more affluent professionals on the coasts and we have concentrations of who are the great losers or the non beneficiaries from trade and that has been somewhat concentrated among the laboring classes in the midwest i think the electoral map speaks to that and i think that president trump mind a pretty rich vein of reasonable resentment about international trade in the u.s. but i do think we have gained more than we've lost and the by the flip of that is if the international order that presently exists is reshuffled pretty dangerous for the us if you're the top card and i shuffle the deck the chance that you fall in the deck is statistically non-trivial it takes over
7:39 am
a whole of slogans playing well in davos. that. yes so look i think i think that dollar trump has more fans than some might have imagined possibly even dollar trump might have imagined in the davos set in part because he has cut the individual taxes of the folks who tend to gather there as well as the copper taxes of the folks who tend to gather there and a lot of what people had feared was that a more kind of harsh populism maybe personified by some members of his cabinet would rule the day and what we've got is much less of that much more of a pro-business agenda with more pro-business legislation so there are probably a few folks even who will be critical of president trump who are privately benefited and far less critical and less sort of excitedly critical they might have been had some of the more populist rhetoric turned into legislation max what would constitute. a successful dumbos conference so to be honest i think the bar is not that high i think if there are no kind of off script harsh language if there's no
7:40 am
diplomatic or personal phone or misconduct it will be very good in terms of the global reception at davos and by the media i think trumps in a very difficult situation on a deeper level which is basically rare that's the kind of guy who keeps people at davos up at night and is now pretty clear that he's the kind of guy who's really excited to be you know invited to spend all of it with the folks at davos and so he's got to sort of thread that needle carefully either one could be a problem but my guess bar is not that high as long as there's no incident here it's a chalk a ball as a when next thanks so much hope to call and even. my pleasure maxwell's chief economist of the phoenix group thanks for joining me on this edition of politicking remember you can join the conversation on my facebook page or tweet me at kings things and don't forget use the politicking hash tag that's all for this edition of
7:41 am
politicking. and political polarization comes back if they come back then that will. provide the right circumstances that i can vitamin d. or ice just good to get. is america as it actually is a bomb over the fantasy is reality and he's doing what you'd expect a seasoned businessman to do cut all the nonsense out of the mix bring jobs back. yes i was pretty hurt with the walk up for the.
7:42 am
last election i believe will do it so well mostly we don't and we will all soon will continue to live on the stuff and we will push it out so. people come here from time. to build up the common i was discouraged more we need to do cops believe. the easy should read the books did. he was more than a bunch. of the procedure to the irish do you can you get other cronies up when you. did to us all. this mission. here's what people have been saying about redacted the night is doing exactly the full on awesome deal the show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch to sleep yampa is the john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are
7:43 am
apparently better than food. and see people you never heard of love went back to the night my president of the world bank paid to write me seriously he sent us an e-mail. wiki leaks chief and julian assange to get his u.k. warrant arrest warrant overturned if successful he could walk free from the ecuadorian embassy in london after more than five years holed up the. u.s. called on turkey to deescalate its military operation in syria while i'm chris says there is a trust crisis in its relationship with washington and what a shame that is think about all that this country has been through and now we're looking at another destruction the promises which have never been kept by united
7:44 am
states reading the trust. and the trust is missing to the u.s. national security agency after it removes the words honesty trust in allah from its official mission statement online. is three o'clock here in moscow and you're watching international live from our studio with me in india welcome to the program the founder of wiki leaks julian assange she is launching in a pail to get his u.k. arrest warrant overturned if his legal channel challenge is successful he may soon be able to walk free from the ecuadorian embassy in london where he's been living for the past five and a half years and a sitter in the british capital for us now honest to say can you break down for us what we know so far all about julian assange appeal. well
7:45 am
learned you know what we have this hour for you is that despite expectations of this morning that a judge would potentially announce a decision on this latest appeal from julian assange as early as this afternoon we are understanding now that the judge has said they're going to take more time to consider this case and a decision on this appeal will not be coming until at least next week so all of the potential hopes that julian assange might have had about potentially. considering being able to walk out of the ecuadorian embassy right behind me here in london for now are stalled as this really seemingly endless saga of his legal case continues here in london but what we do know for now is that julian assange is in fact appealing this arrest warrant based off of his alleged breaching of bail conditions in the u.k. which potentially would be.
