About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer, its his most important tool.  As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

[MSNBC's AM Joy] May 14th: Jack Talks Trump Obstruction of Russia Investigation

President Trump admitted publicly during an NBC interview that Russia was one of reasons that he fired FBI Director Comey. Comey was responsible for the Russian investigation. Trump claims that this is fake news. Unfortanately for the President, this is not fake news. This is a real investigation into a potential crime that has been acknowledged as such by 17 different Intelligence agencies in the US and the FBI is in the middle of an investigation. Anybody who purposely tries to impede that investigation could be charged with obstruction. That is a crime and Presidents can be impeached for committing crimes. It's hard to prove motivation unless some actually says ... one of the reasons I fired the guy is Russia.

[Nicole Sandler Show - Florida] May 12th: Jack Talks Whether Trump Could be Impeached

I appear on the Nicole Sandler Show out of Florida to discuss a simple question:  Could President Trump be impeached?  And the short answer is, it depends.  The first question is whether he has committed any crimes that could justify removal.  Well, I would have said this was debatable until a recent interview the president had an NBC.  In that interview, he stated that one of the reasons that he fired former FBI Director Jim Comey was because of the ongoing Russia investigation which he claims to consider fake news.  Regardless of what he says, this is a real investigation into criminal wrongdoing.  Anybody who tries to hinder that, a sitting President or otherwise, is potentially guilty of a crime.  Presidents can be removed from office for committing crimes through the process called impeachment. The next step, of course, would require a political process to make that happen.  But, because the Republicans control both Houses of Congress, this is a stumbling block.  We will discuss all of this and more.  

Hope you can listen.

[AM950 Minneapolis] May 12th: Jack Talks Trump and Possible Obstruction

I appear on AM 950 Minneapolis with my buddy Matt McNeil.  President Trump admitted during an interview on NBC that one of the reasons that he fired FBI Director Jim Comey was because of the Russia investigation which he describes as fake news.  Here's the problem.  Its a real investigartion into possible criminal wrongdoing.  If somebody does somethig to impede an investigaiton, one can be charged with a crime, obstruction of legal process.  Again, this is a crime.  Presiden's can be impeached for committing crimes.  Of course, politics plays an enormous role in this.  If we learned nothing following the impeachment of Bill Clinton, we've learned nothing.  

This promises to be an interesting converstion.

[KGO San Francisco] May 11th: Jack Talks Trump's Shifting Truth Regarding Comey Firing

I appear on KGO with Chip Franklin on May 11th at 7:30 p.m. e.s.t.  The more we "know" about the Comey firing, the stranger it gets. Are we on the 3rd or 4th justification yet? 

First, It was AG and Deputy who advised firing Comey and that Trump only followed their advice. Of course, AG already recused himself from Russian investigation who then advised President to fire guy responsible for investigation? Then it was all Trump and not those guys at all. Wait. What?

Then, It was because of Clinton emails back in 2016 and not about now. Then it was his behavior now. It's because he's a grandstander. This is all from the same people saying this including POTUS.

Then, It was because the FBI was in disarray. However, the new acting FBI Dir rejected that during testimony today. 

Then Trump said Comey told Trump three times he wasn't under investigation. Everybody, everybody, said a sitting FBI director would never say that about an ongoing investigation. 

I'm starting to wonder if it would be better if we just sent somebody into the WH to sing to Trump, Wheels on the Bus, everyday to keep him busy.

This is going to be interesting.

[Russia TV Moscow] May 10th: Jack Talks Comey Firing

I appear on Russian TV to talk about President Trump's firing on FBI Director Jim Comey.  I made the decision to appear on Russian TV because the Russians absolutely played a role in this.  Trump orginally tried to argue that this was about Comey's work on the Clinton emails.  That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and there is simply no justifiable way to explain this.  So, to put it simply, it is false.  There must be another reason and the only obvious answer in the Russians.  Yes, the potential connection between the Russia and Trump is the elephant or bear in the room.  This issue needs to be determined.

Hope you can watch.

[WVLY West Virginia] May 10th: Jack Talks FBI Director Firing

I appear on WVLY with my friend Howard Monroe. The President fired FBI Director Jim Comey last night he claimed it was because of his handling of the investigation of Hilliary Clinton's emails back in 2016.  The problem is this stretches the bounds of credibility.  Trump himself heaped praise on Comey as recently as October for ewactly that.  Rather, this appears to be about Russia and the investigation.  Again, even Trump alludes to the investigation in his letter and then Kelly Anne Conway said that Comey was fired for his conduct since Trump took office,   This is exactly the point.  This was about the FBI and the FBI's pursuit of Russia and Trump connections.  Hence, when I watched this last night, Nixon's decision to fire Archibald Cox came immediately to mind.  This is an extraordinary story that continues to grow. 

This is going to be fun.

[KOA Denver] May 10th: Jack Talks Trump's Decision to Fire FBI Director

I appear on KOA Denver with my old friend Steffen Tubbs.  Richard Nixon fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973 as Cox was looking into the Watergate scandal. This story of President Trump firing Jim Comey feels a little like that. The problem is the major investigation into the Russia/Trump connection was being driven by the FBI.  This raises enormous questions and we are starting to hear voices from both sides of the aisle including Senator Richard Burr, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee potentially calling for a special prosecutor to step in.  Oh, and Burr's a Republican. This story is actually growing, not shrinking. This may have been a very serious miscalculation on the part of President Trump  We will see.

Hope you can listen.

[I24 International] May 9th: Jack Talks Russia's Resurgence

I appear on I24 International on May 9th. Russia's President, Vladimir Putin has vision, intelligence and capability.  In fact, he has decided the Russia is prepared to take back its rightful place on the world stage.  Even further, because this is its rightful place, it will no longer be ignored.  And he is not a friend of the West of the United States.  

You can see it in Syria, with the Turks, with recent agreements with the Chinese, North Korea, even in the Arctic. However, the real question is whether the west is even noticing or if they care. Trust me, President Putin cares. This has been a slow buildback and he is committing to be a power not to be trifled with.  

This is going to be a fun conversation.  I usually get a chunck of time so this should be a lot of fun.

[WCCO Radio Minneapolis] May 9th: Jack Talks Trump Firing Comey

I appear on WCCO Radio in Minneapolis with my friend John Williams.  Pres. Trump's decision to fire FBI Director Jim Comey is an astounding move.  The WH claims it was based upon email accounts used by Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State.  However, this doesn't seem to make a lot of sense based upon timing and what Trump has said previously.  Its an amazing story and promises to stay in the news cycle for a long time.  This may even result in a special prosecutor to address the Russia Trump connectionl

Hope you can listen.
