In that meeting, members voted to strip the names of American historical figures -- George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and even California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein -- from schools in San Francisco. A removal effort that started with Confederate generals, and then moved on to the Founding Fathers, has now moved on to...Dianne Feinstein? Yes, it has. And it shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.

Can Trump Be Tried? Can Trump Be Tried? Mon, 25 Jan 2021 16:42:22 +0000 House Democrats will deliver to the Senate a single, hastily-passed article of impeachment against former President Trump. A trial is set to begin two weeks later, on February 9. It will be an event without precedent -- the first time in U.S. history that a former president will be tried in a court of impeachment. But does the Constitution even allow a trial for an ex-president? Democrats of course say yes, but the precedent is pretty flimsy, and there is plenty of reason to believe just the opposite. So just why do Democrats think they can go after Trump one last time? A look at a what is sure to be an impassioned, and very weird, argument.

Biden’s True Top Priority Biden’s True Top Priority Thu, 21 Jan 2021 15:37:52 +0000 The new Biden administration says it must act quickly, with a flurry of executive orders, because the nation is experiencing not one, not two, not three, but four crises.

"We face four overlapping and compounding crises," said new chief of staff Ron Klain. "The COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a racial equity crisis."

But what Biden did on his very first day in office -- that is, what he chose to do first -- suggests his real top priority is something else: Immigration. We'll discuss that, plus take a look at former President Trump's change in tone as he departed Washington

Trump Derangement Syndrome In A Post-Trump World Trump Derangement Syndrome In A Post-Trump World Tue, 19 Jan 2021 19:16:52 +0000 President Trump will become former President Trump tomorrow. When Joe Biden takes office, Democrats will control the White House, the House, and the Senate. An ambitious agenda lies ahead for the new Democratic administration. And yet there are signs that some Democrats' obsession with Donald Trump -- the condition known as Trump Derangement Syndrome -- will be as strong, or perhaps even stronger, after Trump leaves than when he was in the White House. Exhibit A is the fact that Democrats plan to hold an impeachment trial for the president after he has left office. But that is not the only sign of lingering TDS. Look at a new conversation between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, in which the two reached back into the Trump-Russia matter to call for yet another Trump-Russia investigation -- even as a new Democratic administration takes office.

Assessing Trump’s Disastrous End Assessing Trump’s Disastrous End Thu, 14 Jan 2021 17:27:36 +0000 Donald Trump is now the only president ever impeached twice. Yes, that says a lot about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, and the Democratic Party's, obsessive quest to remove him from office. But the impeachment is also the result of a disastrous turn in Trump's presidency since the November 3 election. The turn was so consequential that it makes sense to divide Trump's term into the time before November 3, 2020, and then what happened after. With the notable exception of the COVID vaccine, everything Trump did after the election has led to catastrophe for himself, the Republican Party, and the nation. And it all stemmed from one decision: Trump's refusal to accept the results of the election.

The Crazy Impeachment The Crazy Impeachment Tue, 12 Jan 2021 17:22:10 +0000 Democrats started trying to remove President Trump from office before he entered office. Now they are proposing to remove him from office after he leaves office. How do you remove an ex-president? He's already gone. That is the bizarre question posed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's obsessive quest to re-impeach Donald Trump with just a few days left in his term.

For The GOP, Nine Perilous Days For The GOP, Nine Perilous Days Mon, 11 Jan 2021 17:59:05 +0000 There are some Republicans in Washington who wish inauguration day were today, or tomorrow -- or yesterday. They supported President Trump and appreciated his significant accomplishments, but now they are more than ready to move on from what has become a disastrous end to the Trump presidency. The fact is, though, the president's term lasts for nine more days, and the GOP could see partisan wildness beyond anything they've experienced before, starting with a unprecedented quickie impeachment.

The Brad Raffensperger Problem The Brad Raffensperger Problem Tue, 05 Jan 2021 17:53:51 +0000 It's possible to have two entirely different but entirely compatible reactions to accounts of President Trump's Saturday phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. First, the president clearly tried to press Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to flip Georgia from Biden to Trump. Even though Trump obviously believes the phantom votes are rightfully his, he stepped over the line of propriety by trying to push Georgia election officials to change the result. At the same time, Raffensperger has NOW given shifty, evasive answers to basic questions about his decision to make his conversation with the president public. What was he trying to accomplish with the revelation, which just happened to come in the last hours of the Georgia Senate race? Raffensperger appears to have acted more from personal motivations than a desire to expose the president's misconduct.

Now They Tell Us! Trump Was Tough On Russia! Now They Tell Us! Trump Was Tough On Russia! Mon, 04 Jan 2021 18:31:00 +0000 Democrats and their allies in the press spent the last four years accusing President Trump of being soft on Russia. And worse: Some called the president a Russian asset, a traitor, Putin's patsy, and much, much more. It was all BS, because behind the rhetoric was the stark reality that Trump, and his administration, have actually been tougher on Russia than many of his predecessors. Now, with the president on the way out, one lone voice in the anti-Trump press -- CNN, specifically -- has spoken the truth out loud. It's not too late for others to do the same.

The Democrats Eric Swalwell Problem The Democrats Eric Swalwell Problem Tue, 22 Dec 2020 17:00:18 +0000 House Democratic leaders are trying to keep the espionage scandal surrounding Intelligence Committee member Rep. Eric Swalwell under tight control. But it's going to be an uphill battle. Republicans are pushing harder and harder to learn more about Swalwell's relationship with Chinese spy Christine Fang. And after an FBI briefing for GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, it's becoming clear the story will get out eventually.

Dangerous Talk About The Election And The Military Dangerous Talk About The Election And The Military Mon, 21 Dec 2020 17:59:03 +0000 There's been a lot of commentary in recent days about President Trump, the election, and martial law. It is unclear what the president himself thinks about it -- he tweeted that reports were "fake news" and "knowingly bad reporting" -- but it is clear that his former national security adviser, retired General Michael Flynn, is expressing views about a possible military role in the election that are reckless and alarming. In short, Flynn has floated the idea of Trump seizing voting machines from around the country and sending the military into some key states to "re-run" the presidential election. What to make of that? Is it just talk? Something more? It should go without saying that acting on Flynn's proposals would be catastrophic for all involved, and the country as a whole. So what's going on?

When Democrats Tried To Block The Electoral College When Democrats Tried To Block The Electoral College Wed, 16 Dec 2020 17:12:35 +0000 The Electoral College has voted to elect Joe Biden president. That is done. But there is one more step in the process. On January 6, Congress will officially ratify the Electoral College vote and declare Biden the president-elect. Now, though, there is talk that some House Republicans will try to disrupt the ceremony. The plan, such as it is, is being denounced as an "assault on democracy," but it will surely go nowhere. How do we know that? Because Democrats tried the same thing on January 6, 2017 in an effort to stop the ratification of President Trump's electoral victory. One difference: Back then, it wasn't called an assault on democracy. Today's podcast also features a reading from "OBSESSION," Byron's book on the long effort to remove Trump from office.

Yes, some supporters believe he still has paths to victory. But to win he needs to change the results in not one, not two, but three states, and no legal action currently underway can do that. So it's time to talk about what happens next.

How Nancy Pelosi’s TDS Hurt America How Nancy Pelosi’s TDS Hurt America Tue, 08 Dec 2020 19:01:28 +0000 After months of stonewalling Trump efforts to pass targeted, short-term relief for millions of Americans suffering in the pandemic, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has changed her mind. What she blocked before is now OK. Why? Because, Pelosi explained, there's a new president and a vaccine on the way. Huh? Didn't the absence of a vaccine in the last several months make it more urgent to help people? And why refuse to help suddenly-unemployed Americans just because Donald Trump was president? Pelosi's flip-flop revealed the cold political calculations behind her blockade -- and the weird obsession she has developed about resisting Trump.

What Trump Really Said In Georgia What Trump Really Said In Georgia Mon, 07 Dec 2020 16:49:55 +0000 Some in the media knew the story of the trip before Trump even flew to Valdosta, Georgia on Saturday. The president would rant about election results and in the process undermine purpose of trip -- to campaign for Republican Senators Kelly and David Perdue. News accounts, even the ones published after Trump's speech, reflected those preconceptions. But there was much more going on in Valdosta. Trump pushed hard for Loeffler and Perdue. Over and over, he urged Georgians to vote -- by mail, too! And he pushed back at two of the lawyers filing lawsuits on his behalf -- Sidney Powell and Lin Wood -- for urging an election boycott. "We can't do that," Trump said. So here is the real story.

Durham's new status will make it harder for Biden to fire him. It also clears the way for a public report. And that means we will learn more about the FBI's effort to target the 2016 Trump campaign. People who expected top officials to be led away in handcuffs expected too much. This is significant.

What Standard of Proof for Hunter Biden’s Laptop? What Standard of Proof for Hunter Biden’s Laptop? Wed, 21 Oct 2020 03:50:53 +0000 Remember the dossier? Many journalists (not to mention the FBI) worked hard to confirm its allegations against Donald Trump. They failed miserably. But even then, some Democrats, and their allies in the press, refused to admit the dossier was BS. Instead, they argued that since it had not been proven untrue, it must be true. With that in mind, what standard of proof should apply to the Hunter Biden story? One thing is certain: Republicans and conservatives should not fall into the "not proven untrue" trap. It's the wrong standard to apply to serious allegations. Instead, media organizations should be working to confirm the details of the Hunter Biden emails. If they succeed, they've got a big story. If they fail, they can report that the story could not be confirmed. It's a very simple approach -- too bad many news organizations are not following it.

Devin Nunes has been in the middle of Trump wars on Capitol Hill. In this podcast, we discuss some scenes from my new book, Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment's Never-Ending War on Trump, in which he played a prominent role. Like, what happened when Republicans took over the secret room where Democrats were conducting their secret impeachment inquiry? What about Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman? What was his relationship to the whistleblower? And did Nancy Pelosi really threaten to impeach President Trump again, right away?

What’s really happening at the Post Office — No, it’s not a scandal What’s really happening at the Post Office — No, it’s not a scandal Mon, 17 Aug 2020 22:57:09 +0000 It's like Russiagate all over again, this time with the Post Office. The news is filled with reports of President Trump's "assault" on the U.S. Postal Service. The president, Democrats say, is deliberately slowing mail delivery and crippling the Postal Service so that it cannot handle an anticipated flood of voting by mail in the presidential election. Former President Barack Obama says Trump is trying to "kneecap" the Postal Service to suppress the vote. Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the president is trying to "sabotage" the Post Office. The only problem: It's just not true. Herewith, a commonsense explanation of what's going on.

Who Won’t Accept Election Results? Who Won’t Accept Election Results? Wed, 05 Aug 2020 22:49:39 +0000 You've been hearing it for a long time: President Trump will refuse to accept the election results if he loses in November. But now, a secretive group of former government officials has worked through a number of scenarios for the election, and guess what they found? War-gaming a scenario in which Trump lost the popular vote but won in the Electoral College -- in other words, won the presidency -- they found that it was Joe Biden and the Democrats who would not accept the election results. All hell broke loose, as a matter of fact. And then there was the "rogue individual" scenario...

A Big Book Announcement, Plus Conflicting Stories Out Of Portland A Big Book Announcement, Plus Conflicting Stories Out Of Portland Wed, 29 Jul 2020 21:06:10 +0000 This is the first "Byron York Show" podcast since February. Even though it's the no chit-chat podcast, I need to explain what's been going on. The short version: I have written a book. It's about the long effort to remove President Trump from office, and it will be published on September 8. The title is Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment's Never-Ending War on Trump, and if you would like to pre-order, here is the Amazon page. In this new podcast, I discuss some of the reasons why I wrote it. There's some news in the book, and I'll be talking about that a lot more as we get nearer to publication. Also on this episode: The latest on the riots in Portland. Why do the Trump administration and the governor of Oregon seem to be saying such different things about their so-called agreement on the future of federal law enforcement in the city?

37. Trump Not Tired Of Winning: Impeachment Edition Trump Not Tired Of Winning: Impeachment Edition 37 Thu, 06 Feb 2020 01:03:11 +0000 So now the Senate has acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment. It is the end of a Senate trial marked by wild predictions and intense speculation. So with it all over, it's time to look at the things that were said about the trial -- Republicans will defect! John Roberts will take charge! -- and judge them against what actually happened. Plus: Is anyone surprised by Mitt Romney's decision to vote to convict the president on one article? Not if they've been watching Romney for more than a couple of minutes. And finally: The prediction I got wrong.

36. Live From Iowa: Talking Joe Biden with Mollie Hemingway Live From Iowa: Talking Joe Biden with Mollie Hemingway 36 Mon, 03 Feb 2020 22:27:06 +0000 A special edition from Iowa, where Democrats are struggling with a number of unpalatable options in their presidential caucuses. The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway got her first chance to observe the 2020 version of Joe Biden in action, and her reaction is...not entirely optimistic for the former vice president's chances. Meanwhile, President Trump is making an all-out effort in Iowa not to win the caucuses -- he's guaranteed to do that -- but to put a key swing state in the Trump column for the general election before Democrats even choose a candidate.

35. Behind The Scenes Of The New Clarence Thomas Movie Behind The Scenes Of The New Clarence Thomas Movie 35 Mon, 27 Jan 2020 03:04:11 +0000 On Friday a new movie, "Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words," will open in theaters across the country. The most striking thing about it is obvious from the beginning: The famously publicity-shy Supreme Court justice is talking. A lot. Thomas spoke to filmmaker Michael Pack for 30 hours -- yes, 30 hours -- of interviews. What emerges is a deeply personal look at a consequential historical figure who has shunned personal revelations for nearly all of his life. In this podcast, Pack talks about Thomas' life and how 30 hours of interviews turned into an extraordinary film. For more, see justicethomasmovie.com

34. The White House Strikes Back The White House Strikes Back 34 Tue, 21 Jan 2020 01:24:18 +0000 Democrats and their allies in the press have been saying President Trump simply has no defense against articles of impeachment. Hill Republicans made the case for the president, but the fact is, the White House had not produced any comprehensive defense in the nearly four months since impeachment began. Until now. In a 110-page memo, White House lawyers make the process arguments that have been widely discussed. But they also go deeply into the substance of the Trump-Ukraine matter -- more deeply than Democrats ever predicted they would. In this solo podcast, Byron takes a look at the arguments Republicans will be making in the contentious days and weeks ahead.

33. Deep Impeachment With Jim Jordan Deep Impeachment With Jim Jordan 33 Fri, 17 Jan 2020 22:12:23 +0000 The Senate impeachment trial of President Trump begins in earnest Tuesday. Nobody knows the charges better than Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, who was there for every step of impeachment's way in the House. The articles of impeachment are actually quite brief, and we go line-by-line through the accusations against the president. Jordan answers them all -- he appears to be able to recite key documents by heart -- and argues that the Senate should simply dismiss the case before the trial even begins. A preview from a key player in the House.

32. Devin Nunes Talks Devin Nunes Talks 32 Tue, 17 Dec 2019 22:39:16 +0000 Impeachment, the Horowitz report, FISA, battling the FBI, suing CNN, trolling Adam Schiff for getting so much of it wrong -- Devin Nunes has a lot to talk about. He goes into detail about how he discovered the FBI's abuses during the Trump-Russia investigation, and how he faced obstacle after obstacle in his work to make them public. Then, after the Mueller report came out, did he foresee Democrats turning on a dime to impeach President Trump over Ukraine? (Spoiler alert: No.) All that and more in a wide-ranging discussion with the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee.

31. Democrats Scramble To Sell Impeachment Democrats Scramble To Sell Impeachment 31 Fri, 06 Dec 2019 22:31:58 +0000 Democrats are making up impeachment as they go along. They're sensitive to accusations that they're rushing -- but they're rushing. Adam Schiff says Democrats have to act quickly because President Trump presents an imminent danger to the country and must be removed ASAP. For her part, Nancy Pelosi says it's not a rush at all, because the impeachment investigation is really a continuation of the years-long Russia probe. "This isn't about Ukraine," she said. "It's about Russia." Really? Meanwhile, Republicans -- and no one else, apparently -- are upset about Schiff's decision to publish the phone records of the president's personal attorneys, a journalist, and a fellow member of Congress. All in this week's impeachment edition of The Byron York Show.

30. Has Impeachment Peaked? Has Impeachment Peaked? 30 Mon, 25 Nov 2019 21:06:27 +0000 Republican Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, sat through all the impeachment depositions, and then all the hearings. He talks about dealing with the witnesses-Vindman, Sondland, Hill, and others-and sees some waning in impeachment enthusiasm. Polls seem to show that, too. So are Democrats irreversibly committed? Are they on board with what Chairman Schiff is telling them? And on an insanely unrelated note: Did you know that Rep. Stewart has flown around the world faster than any other person?

Vindman 29 Tue, 12 Nov 2019 23:55:23 +0000 With public impeachment hearings starting on Capitol Hill, it's time to look at what the witnesses actually said in those secret Democratic depositions. The star of the show, whenever he is scheduled to testify, will be Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. The National Security Council staffer showed up in full dress uniform -- the first witness who actually heard the Trump-Zelensky call -- and was celebrated in the press. But it turned out his performance in the deposition was a bit different from all that glowing media coverage. Let's take a look inside...

28. Talking Impeachment With Ken Starr Talking Impeachment With Ken Starr 28 Mon, 28 Oct 2019 13:00:45 +0000 Back in 1998, the former independent counsel Ken Starr saw House Republicans use his report to impeach Bill Clinton. Now, he's watching the House race to impeachment again, this time under Democrats and in a very different way. Amid much Republican complaining, do Democrats have the authority to conduct impeachment as they are conducting it? Is it constitutional? Unconstitutional? Anti-constitutional? Plus: Is this the what-goes-around-comes-around impeachment?

Today, a look at two key parts of the impeachment battle that have been the subject of a lot of inaccurate commentary but which we're finally learning more about. First is the now-infamous Mick Mulvaney news conference; just what concerns did President Trump have before withholding, and later approving, U.S. aid to Ukraine? Second is a look inside Adam Schiff's impeachment inquiry interviews. You've seen the leaks. Do they really tell the whole story? (Spoiler alert: No, they don't.)

Now, a new book by two New York Times reporters tries to throw more dirt at Kavanaugh -- and Hemingway has taken the lead in debunking its new, flimsy charges. Mollie talks through it all, plus looks at the agenda behind the brutal attacks on Kavanaugh, and predicts what could happen if President Trump has to fill another Court vacancy.

And more importantly, after all the weedy stuff, a look at the big picture: Should the FBI have been doing what it did?

The players: Comey, President-elect Donald Trump, an FBI laptop, a secure video tele-conference, and the Crossfire Hurricane team. Remember when Comey told Trump the FBI wasn't investigating him? It wasn't true.

And then, when the moment came, the story quickly turned into the state of Mueller himself. Slow, confused, not up on his own investigation, Mueller's performance denied Democrats their desire to turn his report into a "movie" that would capture the imagination of millions of Americans. We talk with Eric Felten, who has written some of the most perceptive pieces around on the Mueller report and the politics behind it.

15. Talking Trump with Conrad Black Talking Trump with Conrad Black 15 Fri, 07 Jun 2019 00:16:50 +0000 So much writing on President Trump, and especially his business career, comes from journalists who aren't businesspeople. What do they know about being hundreds of millions of dollars in debt? Conrad Black is a former press baron who sees Trump's business life from a businessman's (and a historian's) perspective, and his new biography of the president puts Trump in a new light. How much hucksterism is good? Was there strategy behind Trump's professional wrestling antics? And what about the president's near-death experience with debt? Black talks about it all (and yes, he discusses the pardon).

13. Expect No Bull From Durham Expect No Bull From Durham 13 Wed, 15 May 2019 15:53:13 +0000 So where should U.S. Attorney John Durham start as he investigates the Trump-Russia investigation? Well, he might start by talking with former prosecutor Andrew McCarthy. Then: You want to get into the Trump-Russia weeds? This is the place. What about the CIA's involvement in starting the investigation? How come we don't hear much about that? Did the FBI, with Carter Page warrant, surf the "upstream part of the Internet" for Trump info? And what about that 2-hop thing? That and more from a man who really knows his Trump-Russia stuff.
