GERALDO RIVERA: And listen, what Barr said so emotionally and I was so impressed with him yesterday, that really struck me, was when he said 'look at the president, he's in his first two years in office and he knows that the place is rotten with spies and backstabbers. He knows that people are turning on him. He knows that someone that he has no control over and who has really become a force, a self-affirming force in the special counsel, that they are rummaging 19 lawyers, 40 FBI agents, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of subpoenas. He knows what's going on.'

You are the shield. You and your listeners are the power that did not exist or it was not organized enough back in the early 70s. Now we have a situation where it's a fair fight, where the president has allies, where the president's story, despite the mainstream media, will get out.
