Susan Rice: Loss of Over 150,000 American Lives To COVID Is On Donald Trump

Susan Rice, in an interview with the ladies of “The View,” blamed President Donald Trump for the lives lost during the coronavirus pandemic, claiming the previous administration had set him up for success.

That’s right – Rice, whose only notable accomplishment as Barack Obama’s former National Security Adviser was shirking responsibility for a terrorist attack – believes the President must shoulder the blame.

Co-host Sunny Hostin set Rice up with a perfect slow-pitch softball toss, making her line of questioning seem almost assuredly scripted and coordinated.

“Ambassador, I do want to talk to you then about the coronavirus because President Trump has said nobody could have predicted this pandemic,” she said before walking her through the answer.

“But the Obama administration did predict a pandemic and you personally tried to prepare the incoming administration for something just like this, leaving essentially a pandemic playbook that warned of this type of virus happening,” Hostin alleged.

“So who is really to blame for the abysmal response here and the death of 150,000 Americans?”

Rice Points the Finger

Rice smirked prior to answering as if to say “thanks for the setup.” And then she unloaded on President Trump.

“So the fault here, the tragic loss of 150,000 Americans and counting is on Donald Trump and his gross mishandling of this pandemic,” she claimed. “He said it would go away. He likened it to the flu.”

Nowhere did she mention Andrew Cuomo shoving elderly patients into nursing homes. Nowhere did she mention the Democrat impeachment hoax being conducted while the pandemic was hitting our shores.

She did not blame Nancy Pelosi who encouraged her constituents to tour Chinatown in late February because coronavirus fears were “unwarranted.”

She did not blame Bill de Blasio who told New York City residents to “get out on the town despite coronavirus.”

No, every misstep along the path of a historical pandemic was the President’s and the President’s alone.

Maybe he should have just blamed the whole thing on an obscure YouTube video.

Pandemic For Dummies

Rice, who is desperately angling for the Vice President role for Joe Biden’s campaign, claimed everybody knew the coronavirus pandemic was “inevitable.”

“We prepared the incoming administration with a ‘Pandemic for Dummies’ playbook and a tabletop exercise and so many other briefings,” she said.

The media have been anxiously pushing a narrative that the Trump administration ditched that playbook. The reality, according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, is that the Obama pandemic response plan was inadequate.

“Some have erroneously suggested that the Trump administration threw out the pandemic response playbook left by the Obama-Biden administration,” McEnany told reporters. “What the critics failed to note, however, is that this thin packet of paper was replaced by two detailed, robust pandemic response reports commissioned by the Trump administration.”

Additionally, the Obama administration’s response to the swine flu epidemic in 2009 left the nation with a significant shortage of medical masks, something they never bothered to replenish.

Masks, of course, have been the key to fighting off the spread of this virus.

That year also saw Obama scrap the White House Health and Security Office, which worked on international health issues.

Aside from thinking Trump is the only man responsible for the pandemic, Susan Rice has made other wild claims, including the notion that citing the virus’ origin from China is “shameful” and “designed to stigmatize people of Asian descent.”

As House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz has said: “If lies were music, Susan Rice would be Mozart.”

Michelle and Barack Obama Lob Insults At President Trump In First Podcast

Michelle and Barack Obama took a few childish swipes at President Trump during the former First Lady’s debut podcast on Spotify.

The premiere episode was reportedly designed to be America’s “nationwide reckoning with race” and aims to “show us what’s possible when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to open up, and to focus on what matters most.”

Apparently what ‘matters most’ is taking shots at your successor while never actually having the courage to name them outright.

The Huffington Post reports that Barack at one point discussed how young people’s interest in government is generally limited to when something goes wrong.

“We’re getting a good lesson in that right now,” he derided.

Perhaps he was referring to the Do Nothing Democrats and their impeachment scams, but we suspect this was directed at Trump.

Suggests Trump Is Ignorant

In another not-so-subtle jab at the President, the pair discussed turning out voters in the next election.

Barack considers himself an optimist, trumpeting “I’m the ‘Yes, We Can!’ man. I am the ‘audacity of hope’ guy.”

“I think where we disagree is usually you [Michelle] just think things just have to get super, super bad before folks figure stuff out,” the former President lamented.

Mrs. Obama replied, “Well, I hope we’re at that point.”

She continued, “Well, as you pointed out as a former president who reads and knows history – Let’s just take moment to pause and think about that – But as that person, you understand the arc of progress.”

A pretty clear shot at President Trump, inferring he is ignorant. Bitterness, party of two.

Classless

What else would you expect from a pair of classless narcissists who have constantly taken shots at the President since they left the White House?

Two years ago, Mr. Obama strongly suggested that the world has ongoing problems because Trump is an angry racist with “mommy issues.”

The former President even took a shot at his successor by comparing this administration to 1930s Germany.

And speaking of audacity, Obama had the gall to suggest he and Democrat Joe Biden always took responsibility for their mistakes when they were in the White House.

“Can you imagine standing up when you were president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility.’ Literally. Literally,” Biden asked his former boss.

“Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office,” replied Obama.

Fox News Ainsley Earhardt Fires Back At Pelosi After Speaker Refers To AG Barr As A ‘Blob’

Ainsley Earhardt, co-host of Fox & Friends, called Nancy Pelosi out after the House Speaker described Attorney General William Barr as a “blob” and “henchman” for President Trump.

Following Barr’s testimony on Capitol Hill Tuesday, a spectacle meant only to make Democrat lawmakers feel good about themselves by “reclaiming their time,” Pelosi attacked the Attorney General for allegedly doing the President’s bidding.

She was particularly distraught over his use of federal law enforcement to quell violence in cities like Portland and Chicago.

“He was like a blob,” she said, sputtering along in an MSNBC interview. “He was like a, just a henchman for the president of the United States, instead of the attorney general of the United States of America.”

Name-calling. The woman who is second in line to the presidency and her best retort is to call Barr a blob.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham: Somebody From Obama’s FBI Needs To Go To Jail

Double Standard

Earhardt was quick to call out the fact that there is quite the double standard in Pelosi’s disrespectful comments about Barr.

“Nancy Pelosi is saying that he is a henchman and a blob, and there’s a double standard there,” she accused. “What if someone called a woman a blob?”

The Fox & Friends host then turned it over to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for his thoughts on the House Speaker’s attack.

“It’s terrible,” he replied. “But this is the same individual who said that the President of the United States is an imposter back during impeachment.”

Jordan added, “I don’t take what she says about people in the administration very seriously.”

To that point, America doesn’t really take what she says seriously. Earhardt is right – imagine the uproar had a Republican called a female Democrat a ‘blob’ or any other schoolyard insult.

They’d be forced to apologize from the House floor.

What Barr Really Said

In Barr’s opening statement he spoke of “one standard of justice” and how he has “handled criminal matters that have come to me for a decision in this way.”

He was clear and concise about his independence from the administration.

“The President has not attempted to interfere in these decisions,” he stated. “On the contrary, he has told me from the start that he expects me to exercise my independent judgment to make whatever call I think is right.”

In other words, not a henchman by any means.

Pelosi went on to reiterate her disgusting claims that federal law enforcement officers are the equivalent of “stormtroopers.”

“Peaceful protest is who we are and what we do. And do some other people come along and try to disrupt? Yes,” she said. “But you don’t send in people acting like stormtroopers into the scene and evoking even more, even more unease and unrest.”

Imagine that line of thinking in dealing with other crimes. You don’t send police into a bank robbery and put the bank at risk. You don’t send police to a domestic violence situation and cause the assailant to become ‘uneasy.’

It’s clear Pelosi’s mind is ‘like a blob’ – a dark, shapeless and aimless mass of darkness.

Monica Lewinsky Nails It With ‘I Have A Joke’ Clinton Reference

Monica Lewinsky, the political world’s most famous intern, took a shot at the ‘I have a joke’ social media trend and delivered a knockout blow.

The competition was initiated by Nell Scovell, creator of the TV series ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch,’ when she tweeted, “I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills.”

‘I have a joke’ was swiftly trending afterward.

To which Lewinsky offered up her own version.

“I have an intern joke and it … nevermind,” she wrote, at least leaving the final word to the imagination, though it’s hardly difficult to figure out where she was going.

RELATED: ESPN Host Who Mocked Trump For Saying Seattle Protesters Were Violent Comes Home To Find Apartment Complex Torched – Now He Wants A Gun

What Does She Mean?

If you’re too young to remember, Lewinsky had a politically earth-shattering affair with former President Bill Clinton in the ’90s, a relationship which would lead to his impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice.

Clinton’s wife, Hillary, has staunchly defended her husband, insisting he never should have stepped down amidst the scandal, an act which ultimately brought us to today, when no scandal in politics is truly shocking any longer.

“Absolutely not,” the former First Lady insisted when asked if he should have resigned.

She said this less than two years ago when the #MeToo movement was in full swing.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” a reporter asked, to which she replied: “No. No.”

The affair between Mr. Clinton and Ms. Lewinsky is widely seen as an abuse of power, due to the position held by each and the age differences. Clinton was 49 at the time, Lewinsky just 22.

The former President was also accused of multiple infidelities, sexual assaults, and even rape by Juanita Broaddrick, a former nursing home owner.

Clinton has said the ‘gutsiest’ thing she’d ever done in her personal life was to stay married to Clinton, despite these numerous affairs and accusations.

Not Monica’s First Joke

This isn’t the first time Monica has joked about her famous affair.

Last summer, Vice President Mike Pence suggested Americans need to spend more time praying than on the internet, though his advice was truncated by the Washington Times.

They tweeted: “Mike Pence: ‘Spend more time on your knees than on the internet.'”

Freelance journalist Lauren Duca offered a snarky response to the Times tweet of the column: “OK, who’s gonna tell him?”

That’s when Monica chimed in …

This last joke, however, according to actress Mia Farrow, deserves props.

“Monica wins the internet,” she wrote.

Maxine Waters On Trump Using Federal Law Enforcement In Portland: ‘Trial Run’ For When He Refuses To Accept Election Loss

Rep. Maxine Waters dipped her toes into the unhinged conspiracy theorist pool, suggesting the federal police response to violence in Portland is a “trial run” for when President Trump refuses to accept his election loss.

Waters (D-CA) made the claim during an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid Wednesday night.

It’s not to quell violence in these Democrat-run cities, you see, federal law enforcement is there as a plant to be ready for action come November.

“This is what you see in country’s that have dictators,” she claimed. “In third-world countries with dictators, they have paramilitary that they can call up against the people anytime they want.”

No, Mad Max, what you see in third-world countries is what you’re seeing on the streets of leftist-controlled cities – chaos, with no regard to law and order.

And that’s when she added an extra layer to her tinfoil hat …

RELATED: Maxine Waters Pulls Over And Confronts Police Who Stopped Black Driver

Untethered From Reality

Waters proceeded to engage in ridiculous speculation about President Trump not accepting the election results should he lose to Democrat Joe Biden.

You know, the same thing they claimed he would do in 2016. When it turned out it was Democrats who spent four years refusing to accept the election results. They act like we can’t remember what they said and did a mere four years ago.

“As a matter of fact, it has been suggested that this is a trial run for the president of the United States who may be organizing to not accept what happens when we have the election if he’s not elected,” she wildly asserted.

“Is he going to pull out his military? Is he going to engage us?” fretted Waters. “He has already alluded to there may be a civil war if he’s not re-elected. This is dangerous.”

To nobody’s surprise, Reid sat there nodding her head in agreement as Waters spewed the absurd claim.

RELATED: Hillary Clinton: Watching Trump You Have To Be Concerned About His Cognitive Abilities

The Suggestion

It isn’t that hard to find where the ‘suggestion’ came from.

MSNBC’s John Heilemann made similar allegations earlier this week, meaning a good portion of the network actually believes Trump would use the military and refuse to leave office if he loses the election.

“I don’t want to be overly alarmist about this,” Heilemann said. “But this is the time to be alarmist knowing where Donald Trump stands politically, understanding where we are headed in this election.”

“I think we are looking at potentially a trial run for … a genuine attempt to, through intimidation, and potentially through force, to try to steal this election.”

This is projection, pure and simple. It’s what a Democrat in the White House would be doing if they lost to Trump. You’ve already seen what they have done in trying to oust him – impeachment hoaxes, constant lying by the media, spying, planting fake news, insurance policies, and on and on.

Do you think for a moment that Antifa and other leftist rioters wouldn’t be burning the streets if they didn’t get their way? You’re seeing it right before your eyes!

Last month, Biden predicted the military would have to intervene should Trump lose to him in the 2020 election and refuse to leave office.

It’s not just MSNBC hacks and unhinged Auntie Maxine with these conspiracy theories. It’s gone mainstream to the man who could be sitting in the White House this time next year.

And that is scary.

Obama To Biden: We Always Took Responsibility For Our Mistakes

Former President Barack Obama had a sit down with Joe Biden where the duo spoke about how their administration always took responsibility for their mistakes.

Biden posted a video to his Twitter account of the socially-distanced meeting along with the caption “44 + 46,” a reference to their possible presidential line numbers.

The video is a teaser of the conversation between the previous president and vice president.

In the clip, Biden and Obama criticize President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Can you imagine standing up when you were president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility.’ Literally. Literally,” Biden asked.

“Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office,” replied Obama.

Blamed Benghazi on a YouTube Video

Now, when you’re dealing with two skilled and accomplished liars in Biden and Obama, there is a lot to unpack in their comments. Even with just a couple of short sentences.

Let’s begin with Biden’s claim that Trump hasn’t taken responsibility for the pandemic.

While it is true that the President said he doesn’t “take responsibility at all” over four months ago when it was clear that Democrats had impeded congressional efforts to address COVID-19 by hosting an impeachment circus, more recent comments have differed.

In an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, he said: “I take responsibility always for everything because it’s ultimately my job, too. I have to get everybody in line.”

As for Obama saying of shirking responsibility that “those words didn’t come out of our mouths” – what absolute gall.

This was an administration – from Obama to Biden, down to Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice – who refused responsibility for the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012 that killed four Americans, instead deliberately crafting a lie to the public involving an obscure anti-Muslim YouTube video.

At first, they tossed Rice under the bus, forcing her on news stations to repeat the lie over and over again. Clinton would later be tossed under the bus as well.

It took several weeks for Obama to suggest he took any responsibility for the lives lost in Libya, and only did so as the controversy refused to subside and he faced election against Mitt Romney.

Biden, on the other hand, continued to lie.

RELATED: Meadows Expects Indictments From Durham Investigation Into Spying On Trump – ‘Time For People To Go To Jail’

Doesn’t Stop at Benghazi

When did Obama and Biden take responsibility for spying on Trump’s presidential campaign? We must have missed it.

Some Obama-era officials may have no choice but to accept responsibility for the biggest political scandal of our time according to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

In discussing the investigation by U.S. Attorney John Durham into the origins of the Russia collusion probe, Meadows said he “expect(s) indictments.”

“It’s all starting to come unraveled,” he said. “It’s all unraveling. And I tell you, it’s time that people go to jail and people are indicted.”

Aside from that, Obama and Biden took responsibility for everything else.

Just kidding.

One of Obama’s favorite targets for finger-pointing was his predecessor, former President George W. Bush:

And, of course, Obama blamed Fox News for everything that ailed his failure of a presidency. He blamed Russia for Hillary’s 2016 election loss. Not the fact that he was essentially on the ballot for a third term by proxy.

Despite their claims in the Biden video, passing the buck during difficult times was a hallmark of the Obama presidency.

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono Flat-Out Calls Trump Supporters ‘White Supremacists’

Senator Mazie Hirono pulled no punches in an interview with MSNBC stating supporters of President Trump are “anti-immigrant” and “white supremacists.”

Hirono (D-HI) began the segment by claiming the President has been a failure in three aspects:

  • The pandemic – Caused by China with a response slowed down by the impeachment charade.
  • The economy – Caused by the pandemic which had previously been roaring along at historic rates.
  • Systemic racism – Something that only exists in bad individuals and is by no means systemic.

She blamed Trump’s “enablers” for covering up these so-called failures, before really laying into his supporters.

RELATED: ICE Official Has to Explain to Democrat Mazie Hirono What ‘Illegal’ Means

Trump Fans Are ‘White Supremacists’

If there was any question, every Democrat and some Republicans think this way about you because of your support for the President. Hirono just said it out loud.

“We should be dealing with the economic crisis,” Hirono said. “And we should be dealing with the racism that is in our country to which the president speaks to because he has a base of supporters who are very anti-immigrant and white supremacists.”

“That’s who, that’s the, a lot of his base and that’s who he speaks to so the divisiveness continues,” she stammered. “So, we should be focusing on things that we need to focus on.”

The MSNBC host, Chris Jansing, as you would expect, offered no pushback on the outlandish claim.

RELATED: Harmeet Dhillon Wants To Know Where The Outrage Was When Obama Commuted Sentence Of A Terrorist

Made the Claim Before

This isn’t exactly a new claim from Hirono.

In discussing harassment of Republican lawmakers incited by Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Hirono called it activism and justified it due to “white supremacy.”

“Well, this is what happens. They — because when you look at white supremacists and all of that, this is what is coming forth in our country,” alleged Hirono.

“There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country,” she continued. “But this is the kind of activism that occurs. And people make their own decisions.”

There’s divisiveness in our country due to Democrats, unable to debate policies and platforms intelligently, constantly stooping to the race card in order to placate their low-information voters.

Hillary Clinton: I Would Have Done a Better Job As President Handling Coronavirus

Hillary Clinton took a swing at President Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, saying she would have done a “better job” in managing the crisis.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Clinton even claimed she would have done a better job in handling the economic fallout.

“We wouldn’t have been able to stop the pandemic at our borders the way that Trump claimed in the beginning, but we sure could have done a better job saving lives, modeling better, more responsible behavior,” she claimed.

“I don’t think we necessarily should have had as deep an economic assault on livelihoods and jobs as we have,” Clinton added. “So I know I would have done a better job.”

RELATED: Hillary Clinton Says It’s Time For a ‘Real President’

She Crazy

She’s a two-time failed presidential candidate, failed to implement new health care as First Lady, failed to protect Americans as Secretary of State, but we’re supposed to believe she could have done a better job than Trump.

It’s hard not to imagine Hillary locking down the entire nation if she had the power of the presidency behind her, meaning an economy in utter shambles. She celebrated Governor Cuomo, after all, who has done the very same thing – ruined his state’s economy, led the nation in COVID-19 cases, and personally sent thousands of seniors to nursing homes resulting in their deaths.

While locking down Americans, she likely would have never shut down travel from China or other nations that were hotspots for the virus, meaning many more lives lost.

Not to mention, we know all about her crisis management skills from Benghazi. Perhaps she could have blamed the pandemic on a YouTube video.

RELATED: Rep Dan Crenshaw Lights Hillary Clinton Up Over Her Latest Attack on Trump

Fantasy Land

This isn’t the first time Hillary openly fantasized about being the President, and it certainly won’t be the last time.

Several weeks ago, Clinton criticized Trump’s coronavirus response by saying, “We need a real President.”

“Donald Trump isn’t responsible for the coronavirus,” she tweeted recently. “But he is responsible for the disastrous lack of leadership that has led to 122,000 deaths in the U.S. and counting.”

And in April, the former First Lady shared a Washington Post story and quote with her social media followers which falsely alleged the President took over two months to treat the pandemic seriously.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw slammed Clinton when she mocked the President for America becoming the leader in coronavirus cases, a fact only possible if you believe nations like China and Iran had accurately reported their numbers.

“Delete your account. This isn’t the time,” Crenshaw replied. “This can’t be the new normal, where American tragedy is applauded for the sake of political opportunism.”

Additionally, Clinton told the Hollywood Reporter that she would beat Trump if she were on the ballot again in November, but added that running again was “not in the cards.”

Pelosi Looking At Second Impeachment Hoax Against President Trump

To make sure Trump doesn’t win the presidency again or to make him pay if he does, Nancy Pelosi and DC Democrats are considering at least three new articles of impeachment against the president, media and political sources report.

House Speaker Pelosi is considering a broad front strategy and will possibly make the announcement next month or soon afterward in an attempt to steal thunder from the GOP convention and Trump’s fall campaign.

She may consider articles of impeachment, which the House Judiciary Committee will dutifully bring up, on COVID, the riots, and the new Democrat talking point on Russian bounties on the heads of American troops in Afghanistan. The charges would break down this way:

COVID- The Democrats would charge that the president, out of incompetence and failing to listen to his public health advisors, failed to respond to COVID in time and by such is directly responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 Americans.

Yes, it is absurd and is especially so as Joe Biden called the president’s initial travel ban “xenophobic.” But this country passed the boundaries of the surreal some time ago regarding charges against the president.

There are approximately 45% of the public who will believe anything negative about Trump, no matter how ridiculous. Democrats can call them out at will to make it seem there is consensus for a new impeachment drive. Collusion with China on the virus is another facet of this charge: that the president, for personal and national economic gain, ignored the virus to curry favor with the Chinese.

The riots- This article would essentially charge the president with the constitutionally vague high crime and misdemeanor of “racism” and would thus hold him responsible for the deaths and riots associated with the George Floyd shooting.

This makes no sense and it’s not supposed to make sense. None of it is. The Democrats know they can never get enough votes out of the Senate to convict even if the Senate flips to them in November. The goal is to make the president look guilty, or sparing that make voters tire of his controversies, to depress his strength with swing voters.

This specific ploy would be to increase black Democrat turnout by luridly replaying scenes of the riots and blaming Trump. Though as Democrats are at this point held more responsible on the riots than the president, this could backfire on them.

Russian bounties- Democrats will charge, again, that the president is somehow compromised by the Russians and that’s why he ignored alleged intelligence reports on a Russian military intelligence unit paying the Taliban to kill American troops in Afghanistan.

Given all intel agencies have publicly disavowed the reports, this would be the hardest case to make. Remember, none of these are designed by Democrats to convict Trump in the Senate, only to hurt him, and the nation, between now and election day and even after that if the president wins reelection.

Speaker Pelosi And Adam Schiff Launch New Plan To Take Trump Down

On NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and committee chairs are considering calling former National Security Adviser John Bolton to testify before Congress about the allegations in his newly released book.

In the interview, Schiff stated, “We will look at what allegations like those involving Turkey and other countries, particularly involving China, need to be fleshed out and exposed to the light of day, and then we’ll make our decisions.”

He continued, “But, you know, we do need, I think, to expose the length and breadth of this president’s depravity and how much it is endangering the country. So those facts are going to need to come out, and we are discussing with the Speaker and my fellow chairs just how to do that.”

Schiff suggested he would not have Bolton wait until after the November election to testify, if lawmakers decide to call him to do so.

“I don’t think we should wait if we conclude that there are important things that he says that need to be exposed to the public. The public needs to know exactly what they have in this president. A lot of it is not a surprise, but at the same time, exposure of this president’s misconduct is the best way to protect the country. Congress can take steps to protect the country,” Schiff added.

Schiff said he has yet to read the forthcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened,” other than the excerpts that have been reported, but expects to do so in the next couple of days. Bolton makes several new allegations against the president in the book, including alleging that Trump solicited Chinese President Xi Jinping’s assistance in winning reelection.

Bolton refused to testify before the House during its impeachment inquiry. Instead, he threatened to join a lawsuit contesting the House Democrats’ subpoenas seeking his associate’s testimony. Schiff said on Sunday that by publishing allegations in the book after refusing to testify during the impeachment probe, “he [Bolton] indicts himself for cowardice and for greed.”

“Because there were people who did come forward, people like Colonel [Alexander] Vindman and Fiona Hill who risked their careers,” Schiff said. “And he lacked that basic courage and patriotism. It was only the greed that made him come forward in this book.”

“What his lawyer was saying at the time was that Bolton might damage the presidency or he might violate his own oath and that’s why he needed to go to court. But apparently those things have given away to a book deal,” Schiff added.
