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.

[I24 International News] July 14th: Jack Talks Trump Junior's Creative Truths

I appear on I24 International News on July 14th.  Donald Trump Jr. just met with a Russian lawyer back in June 2016 to talk about Russian adoptions.  That's it nothing more. Then, well, it wasn't exactly just Russian adoptions, it was also dirt on Hillary Clinton that this Russian lawyer has.  Um, well, then, it wasn't just a Russian lawyer, it was a Russian lawyer who was bringing information from the Russian government who wanted to help his father, Donald Trump's campaign for the U.S. presidency.  Oh, and Jared Kusher, Trump's Senior Advisor, and Paul Manafort , his campaign chairman also appeared.  And, yup, there's more.  Also present was a former Russian Counter-Intelligence official.  Yeah, we can't make this up.

Now, let's consider, Jeff Sessions, Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn have all lied about their contacts with Russian officials.  OK, they forget about a bunch of contacts with Russian officials.  At the same time, the Russians absolutely hacked into government data bases and tried to impact U.S. elections and Mr. Trump fired the man responsible for figuring out whether Trump and his team were involved in the elections.

How do I say this . . . innocent people don't act this way.  Stories don't change.  The truth is the truth is the truth.  

This should be an interesting conversation.

[Voice of America Intl. Edition] April 25: Jack Talks Mike Flynn's Crimes

I appear on Voice of America International on April 25th to discuss recent statements by House Oversight Chairman Chaffetz, a Republican, who acknowledged today alongside others on the Committee that President Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn appears to have committed a crime when he failed to disclose that he was a foreign agent for the Turks and the Russians.  Of course, this investigation is really about something else.

The real question is whether the Trump team conspired with the Russians to win the election.  What is certain is this:  The Russians tried to manipulate the election.  The Russians tried to support the Trump candidacy over Clinton.  The Russians paid Flynn.  Flynn failed to disclose the information.  Flynn met with the Russian Ambassador, a known intelligence agent  What is necessary now is to determine what did Flynn talk about with the Russians and did Trump conspire alongside Flynn.

This is going to be an interesting conversation

[Voice of America Intl. Edition] March 31: Jack Talks Latest on Trump/Russia Investigation

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on March 31st.  There are multiple investigations going on as we speak involving the Trump Administration and their alleged connections with the Russians.  We know that the Russians tried to impact the Presidential election.  That's not the question.  The entire U.S. Intelligence establishment has concluded that that is the case.  The issue is whether the Trump Administration conspired with the Russians to make that happen.  The sort of enemy of my enemy is my friend concept.  We will discuss the latest. 

With so much going on in both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees as well as the FBI, there is going to be a lot to talk about including Burr, Nunez, Flynn, Kuchner and more.  Hope you can catch it.
