A new story from Ron St. Pierre


About the impeachment inquiry morning Michael let's start off with Attorney General Barr yeah so we're hearing word today that the New York City bar is having an issue with bill bar on Wednesday they called for Attorney General bill Barr to recuse himself from any ongoing or future review by department of justice of Ukraine related issues and asserted that if he does not do so he should resign or face public all about pace possible little from his job by Congress now that agitation if you will they say appears to point to his primary obligation as loyalty to the president rather than to the nation and that's where their big concern as they they're specifically talking about that July twenty fifth phone call that we all got the partial transcript from where in that president trump is putting pressure on you green correct Ukraine the president telling theologically and with that he says why don't you talk to bill Barr multiple times within that time frame in the phone calls and that's something that the bars associations that is an absolute bad move for bill bar he needs to step aside because his name is mentioned in there but also because the justice department reviewed the complaint to determine if you should open an investigation into whether campaign finance violations have been committed and ultimately determined there was no sufficient predicate to do so now the decision technically made by the assistant Attorney General by a bench counts he so bar was not recused from the matter but was aware of the discussion and about the whistle blower complaint mentioning him in that verbatim so concerns there from the legal world as to the standing of bill Barr and if he should recuse himself was the number two GOP senators saying about bill Taylor's testimony well what you're getting from the number two GOP senator John Yoon in in the from South Dakota is saying that you while he has heard some of the testimony not all of the testimony from bill tell most people have not seen all the testimony from bill Taylor unless you were in that room he said that it was difficult to draw a hard and fast conclusions from what he had seen in the closed door testimony but that the picture from the initial report was not a good one for Republicans he said I would say again that and so we have a process that allows everybody to see it is in full transparency it's pretty hard to draw any hard fast conclusions but at the end of the day this was not a good but not a good one if you are not a good report for Republicans going forward any songs in the ideas in the peeps about when the public will be you know able to see some transparency here with this impeachment inquiry well I guess well for the most part depends on who you talk to you know there there is push going on right now in Washington DC allegedly from house Democrats that want to make the impeachment inquiry as public is mid November that that push coming up the Republicans you might remember the other day storm the hearing room well they're looking at possibly making a public portion of this inquiry happened Democrats hope to question will bill Taylor the head of the U. S. about embassy in Kiev and the former Ukraine ambassador Marie of bondage that they've already question behind closed doors are thinking about those two would be the two at least at this point they want to break out and been put into a public sphere on some level all right Michael by our from our twenty four seven network Michael have a great weekend thank you enjoy your weekend route nine minutes past six o'clock now the vice president slamming the NBA's business dealings in China so he's getting involved in this whole thing is fox's bent a politician a vice president Mike pence Thursday last at the NBA for what he saw as their towering to the Chinese government in their stand off over a tweet from Houston Rockets executive Daryl Morey in support of pro democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong earlier this month some of the NBA's biggest players and owners who routinely exercise their freedom to criticize.
