4:05 PM ET – Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice and Counsel to the President, is here to discuss the press announcement last week by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the upcoming release of the IG report by Counsel Horowitz. A closer look at the inappropriate nature of Mueller, from Rich Lowry in National Review:

In surely one of the more gobsmacking utterances ever made by someone from a Justice Department podium, he said that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

If this standard had been applied to any person other than Donald Trump, it would have been widely denounced, and the American Civil Liberties Union would be crusading against it.

Naturally, Trump’s critics immediately concluded from Mueller’s statement that if Trump hadn’t been found innocent, he must be guilty. The snarky headline on a New York magazine piece put it aptly enough: “Mueller: Trump is Not Not a Criminal.”

Well, you might say, of course Robert Mueller departed from standard operating procedure — he’s a special counsel operating in novel circumstances that require novel approaches.

5:05 PM ET – Former Senator Joe Lieberman, joins us to talk about the state of the democratic party, from the extreme anti-semitic remarks from the news members to the push from Rep. Nadler for more investigations, there seems to be no end in the search for a crime with zero evidence. Finally we will get the Senator’s take on the state of the United States and their relationship with Iran.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that the Trump administration is ready for unconditional discussions with Iran in an effort to ease rising tensions that have sparked fears of conflict. But the United States will not relent in trying to pressure the Islamic Republic to change its behavior in the Middle East, America’s top diplomat said.

Pompeo repeated long-standing U.S. accusations that Iran is bent on destabilizing the region, but he also held out the possibility of talks as President Donald Trump has suggested. While the offer may not pan out, Pompeo made it during a visit to Switzerland, the country that long has represented American interests in Iran, as part of a European trip aimed at assuring wary leaders that the U.S. is not eager for war.

“We’re prepared to engage in a conversation with no preconditions,” Pompeo told reporters at a news conference with his Swiss counterpart. “We’re ready to sit down with them, but the American effort to fundamentally reverse the malign activity of this Islamic Republic, this revolutionary force, is going to continue.”
