The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. And it is an interesting day for sure. We will talk today with two of our old friends. Ted Malloch, of course, is an award winning biographer. Yes, and historian, also a businessman. And he writes a column, writes regularly and a column running most recently over at American Greatness, am greatness.com. We’ll catch up with him.
And then another guy we haven’t had on the show in a long time. Mark Schneider, @SubSchneider on Twitter. He is the guy who is among a handful, less than a handful, really two or three men. Maybe there’s a woman in there, but two or three leaders who have sort of single handedly redefined the question of nuclear power in America, making it so that when you talk about Generation Four nuclear, you now know, most people do, that it’s the solution. If you want to get carbon neutral, you go with nuclear. Generation Four, which won’t melt down and actually consumes its own waste. It’s a crazy, amazing thing. So we’ll talk with Mark Schneider, it’s been a long time to catch up.

Today’s what you need to know – You may think we were getting ready to talk about election results. And up in New Jersey, there’s an upset of a senior leader in the Democrat party, a state Senator. I think his name is Sweeney. He lost to a Republican for state Senate by a few thousand votes. Total upset. Amazing thing. But that’s not what I want to talk about. It’s not even Youngkin or anything in Virginia. There’s lots of coverage of that. All the coverage right now of the establishment is trying to position that it’s not Trumpism that won it’s really good candidates who distanced themselves from Trump. It’s crazy. It’s nonsense. Karl Rove has a piece like that.
Today, I want to talk to you… What you need to know is John Durham, the former US attorney. I guess he still is in Connecticut, who has the Durham investigation ongoing. Earlier on Thursday, there was an arrest of a man who is described as one of the key sources for the Steele Dossier. And so his name is Igor Danchenko, and he’s been indicted in the Eastern District of Virginia. Federal courts. Looks like false statements, lying to the FBI, other stuff. Here’s what you need to know. The Russia Russia Russia hoax. It was revealed as a hoax by Mueller. Right?
Remember what the Russia hoax was supposed to be was that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians for the election, right? That was supposed to be the origins of the Russian investigation. That was the spin that Hillary put on losing the election. And for the better part of a year, she went around saying the election wasn’t legitimate and she drove Democrats to believe that was true. So that was the origins. But what the Russia Russia Russia hoax became was this absolute just boondoggle. When the Mueller report was done, the Democrats had to admit there was nothing there.
But now, when we look back at what happened, so many pieces of this are as despicable as a moral matter and undeniably unethical and perhaps illegal. What do we have? We have a foreign agent, Steele. He was a CIA, he’s the British version of the CIA. He was in there in their version of the intelligence service. I’m not sure which division he was in, but he was for many years an intelligence agent of the British government. Here’s a tip, pro tip comingw, hen you’re in the CIA, when you’re in the British version of their intelligence, whichever division he was in, when you’re in the I don’t know. Go back KGB. When you’re in the Mossad, you never are not in the intelligence community. How we say it.
It’s one of the reasons why it’s so insane that MSNBC and CNN put Brennan and Clapper up on TV and let them talk like they do. They both lied. Admitted they lied to Congress and lied in other places. But you never are out. It’s like the mob. You’re never totally gone. So Steele is a British agent. I think he says he’s retired, but who knew? And he had a big company, got paid lots of money – It looks like by the Democrats, it’s not directly by Hillary’s campaign, by somebody. And then they went out and made up stuff. Now it’s one thing to make up stuff in political theater.
And the Steele dossier might have been political theater. It might have been like an old fashioned political hit job. Except what happened with the Steele dossier is that they use the federal government to validate it and then use it against a sitting President and use it against a candidate first. So the Steele dossier, it’s the perfect emblem of corruption in America because it wasn’t just a political hit. It was a political hit that was then used to get FISA court applications filled out, lied about. It was used to open an investigation, open an actual investigation into the Trump campaign. What was it called? The Crossfire Hurricane.
They actually opened up an investigation. So the people who lied in the Steele dossier, and we’re finding out more about this. Now this Igor Danchenko was arrested. And Sussman, the lawyer, was arrested. And we have a Klinesmith, an FBI agent who pled guilty, I think it was, took a plea deal. And what we’re getting at here is that the connection between the political campaigns and the use of government force. Now this is not unheard of. It’s inappropriate.
Don’t get me wrong, but it’s not unheard of. I mean, I think you can go back in time and you’d say this kind of corruption exists, but we’re seeing what many of us did not ever think we’d see, which is we are getting to the bottom of it. And what you need to know is this leads right to Clinton, Obama. It leads right to the Obama White House where Joe Biden was and Lisa Monica was and Susan Rice was. Lisa Monica is the number two at the Department of justice. She’s running everything.
Merrick Garland is a what, 70 year old retired federal judge. He’s not energetic in the way that… he’s a figurehead. And the number two there is running everything. That’s Lisa Monica – pure insider, Democrat hack. That’s my assessment of her. Susan Rice – pure insider Obama hack. They’re running things. And all of this Steele dossier goes back. And so when we see that there’s indictments for lying to the investigators and covering up what it means is, remember what this is important, what it means is they know that they lied.
In other words, you can’t speculate that Igor Denchenko was not very helpful. I didn’t like that. No, they know that he lied. They’ve got something that shows that he lied. That means they know more than we know now and that Igor Danchenko knew when he was being questioned. So they have a fuller picture and it’s coming into focus. And here’s another little piece of this puzzle. When Biden won – use that term loosely – when Biden became President. And there’s a new President, it’s natural, especially because the Democrats are better at this than Republicans.
It’s natural that the forces of power that lurch towards the new President would make it harder to pursue some of these challenges. That’s natural. You can say it’s not fair and right, and that’s true. But it’s natural. But it looks like – and then this is the important part – By now, ten months into this presidency, Joe Biden is so weak, his reputation is so bad, his persuasive power is so broken, he is not a force to be reckoned with.
And John Durham appears to be getting all the pieces in place to explain what happened. Now, do I think it will end up being Susan Rice sent to jail? No, I don’t think so. But it may give us a sense, a fuller sense of the scope of the small c corruption, the use of power and government by Obama’s administration and by the FBI against Trump and his administration and We the People. And the solution for that is probably only a political solution, meaning Democrats will lose more seats in the House and Senate. They’ll lose more governorships.
They’ll lose more races because they’ve become the party of corruption. They’ve become the party, and it’s not a perfect analogy by any sense, but it will make you think in the direction -they’ve become the party of Watergate. There was a period for about two cycles in the 70s where if you were a Republican, you were in the party of Watergate. It didn’t matter if you were a Boy Scout, your party was the one that was bad actors. And it took about five years for that to wash off. Reagan really broke it by the time he became President.
But the Democrats are becoming the party of the corruption. And I think Durham is going to give us a view of that that is going to make it clear exactly how bad that is, how bad it was, how abusive it was, how over the top it was. And the only thing you should really fear is that they can’t be stopped and they won’t be stopped now. Because I don’t think that their instinct is ever to stop.
In other words, I think that they would use it again today if they can (they probably) are to make it miserable for the people that are their opponents. You can see that. So it’s a good day. What you need to know today is it’s a good day that we got, we’re getting the picture. We’re getting a clearer picture of the corruption of the swamp as it relates to the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax. That’s a good thing. It’s a good day. That’s what you need to know.
