Fresh update on "acting chief" discussed on Marion Now - Moving Our Community Forward
"So I'm pleased for that. You know. So this morning before I came into your studio I did announced that the one of. The majors will step up and be the interim chief A lot of folks believe that the mayor appoints the chief of police, the fire chief that is just not the case we are a statutory city we have Civil Service Commission. So we follow the civil service rules and laws of the state of Ohio but until that chief is permanently in the next next chief is perfectly in that position, I do get to appoint the interim chief and the choices are the three majors that we have in the civil service rules. Only the three majors are qualified to take the chiefs tests. Two of them have decided that they want to have an opportunity to take the test and become the next chief. Of police in the city of Marion, but in the meantime, Major McDonald will be the acting chief of police. The interim chief of police until such time as the test is administered and the results come back and then we'll know who the next chief of police is. Now, we're probably going to have to wait a couple of weeks hopefully, not a couple of months until we know that permanent new chief of police but we hope to get it done just before twenty one starts excellent very good and is that just how it works in Marian or is that the way it works across the country that you have to go from lieutenant to Major to chief or well I I I? Can't speak as how it works across the country I. Think there were a lot of municipalities have police departments in the state of Ohio at that way, it's really based upon are you a statutory city or a charter city Gra, a charter city mayors if there's a strong mayor, have a little bit more flexibility on who their chief of police and. Fire chief are but were statutory. So we fall the state laws in the Ohio revised code, and we have a civil service commission that administers the promotions in the Police Department suburb. Good. Very good. Well said. So that's how that works and then It looks like then you'll have the lieutenants taken the majors position the test in the majors taken achieve. To that's exactly right We'll have one majors position open because we obviously know that one of the three majors will become the next chief of police. So the lieutenants are the ones that are qualified to take the majors tests and just asked this morning. It looks like that the vast majority of our lieutenants will be sitting for the tests to become the.

"acting chief" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"The administration live on television in the impeachment hearings. That's next aw a midnight self massacre. That's what could have happened. If senior trump administration officials. What along with their plan to resign as a group last year to sound public alarm about President Trump's conduct that's according to the new book? A warning excerpts excerpts of the book are already out ahead of its November nineteenth. Release as you saw on Rachel show last night written by the author of last year's anonymous New York Times op ED apiece. The writer described only as a senior official in the trump administration claims that the plan never came to fruition for fear of destabilising the government now. According waiting to excerpts reviewed by the Washington Post the book also describes senior officials reaction to the president's tweets quote. It's like showing up at the nursing home daybreak defined your elderly uncle running Pantelis across the courtyard and cursing loudly about the cafeteria. Food as worried. Attendance tried ride to catch him. You're stunned amused. Embarrassed all at the same time. Only your uncle probably wouldn't do it every single day. His words aren't broadcast broadcast to the public. And he doesn't have to lead the US government once he puts his pants on the post reports. The book describing the President Railing against federal judge's Judge's ruling against his policies like the two thousand seventeen travel ban. He asked White House lawyers quote. Can we just get rid of the judges. Let's get rid of the expletive expletive judges. There shouldn't be any at all really. This is just the beginning. There will surely be more excerpts reviews leaks of the book in in the run-up to its release and that will be playing out in the background as the public hearings in the impeachment. Investigation of president trump begin next week. The under uh-huh th depositions are already providing their own window into the chaos of the trump administration as experienced by senior officials acting Ukraine ambassador. Bill Taylor will be the first witness in the public impeachment hearing on Wednesday. Here's one thing ambassador Taylor mentioned when asked about the difficulty in scheduling meeting with the president trump about military aid to Ukraine. He said I think this was also about the time of the Greenland question about purchasing greenland. which which took up a lot of energy at the National Security Council Chairman Adam Schiff replied? Okay that's disturbing for a whole different reason. We'll talk about all that that now. Donald Trump is reportedly reacting in the White House next with Gabe Sherman and nearer heaven. The White House has it's response to the anonymous book. A Warning Press Secretary Stephanie. Grisham said quote the coward. Who wrote this book didn't put their name on it because it is nothing but lies real real author's reach out to their subjects to get things fact check but this person is in hiding making that very basic part of being a real writer impossible reporters who choose to write about this farce should have the journalistic integrity to cover the book as what it is a work of fiction and quote that may well work work by the way with the anonymous author but the American people are going to be hearing some unflattering anecdotes of what's been going on behind the scenes of the trump administration in the impeachment hearings? Starting starting next week from people under oath whose names you will know whose careers you will understand it. It's not from anonymous sources. The senior career officials who have given depositions and who in some cases will testify in public are putting their names and faces to their accounts. Like this one from Dr Fiona Hill describing Aerob- effort to get a White House meeting for the president of Ukraine in exchange for opening a political investigation the so called drug deal that John Bolton and said he wanted. No part of Dr Hill told the House intelligence committee she was concerned not just about the content but also the location of this July meeting between Gordon Sunland Oakland and Ukrainians right by the White House Situation Room Hill said. It's completely inappropriate to have you know the ambassador to the e U Gordon saw take the Ukrainians down to the ward room which is near the situation room. Dabbagh Huddle on the next steps about getting a meeting with the president of the United States. I don't even know whether the Ukrainians had left their cell phones in boxes at this particular point you can be sure that they're being targeted by the Russians joining me now. Gabe Sherman Vanity Fair special correspondent and an MSNBC contributor and back with us is near attendant who has spent a good deal of time inside the White House near. You've had some access to some of the people who have Read this book Phil Rucker From The Washington Post is read it and spoken about it. The New York Times Book Review is written about it. Is there anything described in this books. So far that resembles anything that you experienced in the White House zero. When I worked in the White House we had okay We had good controls over near security. People understood that the that we basically had foreign governments that were we're trying to get information from us And actually there was a process. There was always process around everything we didn't have. I mean I was privileged to serve for president with President Obama and President Clinton and You know neither one of them tweeted out attacks on political opponents or Just attack them through the press or did any one of these things I mean. What's amazing about this book and obviously we all have to read it in detail? Is that just. From the excerpts. It doesn't seem unimaginable because it that is exactly what we've seen day to day. This is an interesting black real real time events. We see a president out of control all the time so it's not surprising that it is out of control behind the scenes. It's just it's just remarkably assuring that he is equally out of control behind the cameras as well. Let Me Return From The New York Times book review anonymous has seen disturbing things. Anonymous heard disturbing things you the reader will already recognize. Most of what anonymous has seen scene and heard as revealed in this book. If you've been paying attention to the news. Did you know that the president isn't much of a reader that he's inordinately fond of autocrats that he stumbles slurs gets. That's confused as easily urinated and has trouble synthesizing information. Those who have read the book already say it's a lot of anecdotes. Yet is it it sort of reinforces what people know. What do you make of it? Yeah I mean I think that's the problem that we're seeing with the roll out of this book. Is that fundamentally it's not advancing and a and filling in more detail. The picture we know of this President I mean a me as a reporter covered both his campaign and the White House. I hear these anecdotes. Every day from people who work inside inside the White House. They're reported in New York Times and the Washington Post and elsewhere so the problem is this book doesn't actually advance the ball and people were waiting for that especially especially on top of the fact that the author is anonymous I mean usually journalists extend confidentiality the sources when the only reason they can get that information to the public. It's protecting their identity and now this author has done that and he says he doesn't WanNa make the story about himself but then you got to deliver the goods and unfortunately I you know and I say this someone who wants to know the full inner workings of this White House like. I wish that there was more so far. I mean perhaps the book itself will have more what we what we have read. It does not fill in that picture advantageous or disadvantageous to the author and the publisher. There is this sidetrack that'll be going on next week. It'd be the main Ayn track really. It'll be the impeachment hearings in which there will be people who were in the White House who will describe things. Perhaps not as juicy fashion as anonymous does in the warning warning. But in a way that reinforces exactly that message that the book contains that people like Gabe and others have been reporting on for the last three years absolutely absolutely. I do think that is a part of this book. which is that we will we will? I'm sure this is inadvertent but the timing is such that we will see Z.. In real time Public Servants Essentially people career diplomats career public servants who actually in real in their experience We're trying to fight against the president's instincts just as anonymous described. She'll be real confirmation for the book in the public at the time but interesting wresting Gabe Stephanie. Grisham at the White House pushes back on this. Because the idea is the person's anonymous. They must be gutless and cowardly and so so hence. You mustn't believe it. When in fact we've got a whole bunch of people who are coming out there showing their faces and testifying? Yeah I mean my reporting today is that the president has been very unhappy be with his communications and the fact that he feels the White House is not doing enough to defend him. And Stephanie Gershom. From what my reporting is indicated. Basically takes dictation from and trump. These statements are things that he is dictated. ABM Berry Trumpian and so you know. He is launching a full scale assault on this book. Clearly this is just another front in the multi-front war against this White House. But I think teed up at the top of the segment. We're going to see all of these people under oath on the record talking about about what.

S. Anderson's they don't want to answer some questions that they think are just too personal and and these are US citizens so it there's always a little skepticism a little of fear or what have you that maybe the government is you know intruding too much so this argument about the well the illegals fear you know it's it's going to expose them well the problem that that the lesson most of them are probably known to be able to go to begin with so all all this is doing basically is counting them as a number like they would anybody else the fear the skepticism and what have you that's been rented for you for decades and this is no different well the forming acting I structure Tom home and I was on with Lou Dobbs last week and he said and I quote of course the Democrats don't want that question and of the senses because more illegal aliens in this country are more they are counted more electoral votes more power they get more seats in the house this is about power this is about elections this is about electoral votes because it's a it's a double fisted the finger one is remember they're trying to change the system I'm trying to dump the electoral college you go to the popular vote so this plays right in the hand of of the popular vote over the electoral college and changing all the state is called the national popular vote interstate compact that is the Democrat scheme.

These missiles, whatever they were whatever you wanna call, and they were very small. And not aimed at Japan not aimed at at Guam. They were aimed up the North Korean coast. So is very non-provocative provocation. If there's such a thing so looking for ways to describe it, as you know, the relationship between Kim Jong UN and the president still remains good. We are still confident that we'll have additional talks we want additional talks. We think it wanted to summit eventually. Yeah. I think we do keep in mind. The reason the president walked away last time. And I was there at the table. Yeah. Was that we just got the impression they were not really willing to negotiate. They were not willing to actually bargain, and they gave us an offer. And, you know, take it or leave it offer five different times, it soon couldn't take it. So we had to leave it. So when they're ready to actually have negotiation. We do want to continue those Venezuela. What does the policy it looks as if it's a drift? We know the policies not adrift. We continue support Guido. We are not while all options are on the table. And we mean that seriously. So you can. Read that the Pentagon is not a fan of this. You know that the president of the Pentagon? We'll do what the president wants them to do. That's what they're there to do. So we can I'm not wrong about we look at all options. Now, I I'm going to disagree with you. I'm going to say that we're going to do what we have to do down there. But clearly we have to do. And what's interesting. We are going to we are going to support the Guido. We're gonna make sure he becomes the new leader. Now, I think I don't think we're gonna take -firmative action to make him become the leader.

"But I think what Mr. McConnell was speaking to was that the president has been exonerated. There was no collusion and no obstruction period end of story. Now, it's time to move onto the business of government. Does that mean that other individuals may or may have not done other things? I have no idea. But I think that's what Mr. McConnell was speaking to was the implications for the president of the United States. There was no reason that McConnell will go to the Florida talk about Don, jR, that just not going to happen. He's talking about the president got it. So the Treasury Secretary this week informed, Richard Neal that chairman of the House Ways and means committee that the treasury department after consulting the Justice department will not provide the president taxes. You've got on the record saying congress will never see them. Absolutely, right. Why? Because they not entitled to see them by law. They by the way, they know especially on this one. They know they're never going to get these documents. This is a pure show pony type of situation, they know the legal reasons they can get those. Documents and legislate legitimate legislative function. Right. And they they're not even close to that. They are doing ask them you come in bring him in here. Throw a couple of beers in them. They'll tell you. They're just doing this to make the president look bad. They don't care. This is not about information about the president keep in mind, all of the president's financial holdings by law are disclosed you want to know what the president owns you wanna high makes money all that stuff is by law. Just goes I have to fill up my form by the end of next week. So does he this is just about trying to embarrass the president? What's has tax records? That's that's what they want to know. What what what is it it? I don't know because I've never seen. I have no idea because I and I don't care and more importantly voters don't care keep in mind. Everybody knew everybody who cared knew that the president didn't produce his tax records before the election, and they voted for him. Anyway. So from a political perspective, this debate is over the Democrats trying to continue that political conversation when there's no reason to do that the New York legislature may seek to obtain them or California in its legislature is saying if you. Don't disclose your tax returns, you cannot appear on the ballot. It's the White House reaction. It's a really interesting. I this is not an official reaction because we've not had a chance to discuss. It's a really interesting question as to whether or not, you know, the states do control their own balance and valid access exactly let states rights. So there's an interesting. There's an interesting aspect federalism. Yeah. Absolutely. So that's an interesting aspect doesn't conservative. I would think you would think that is I'm within its boundary. My natural. My natural inclination was to devolve more power to the states at the same time is it relevant because I got newsfeed. Democrats win California New York anyway. Okay. So the president doesn't need to be on the ballot. He still going to win reelection without California, New York. I mean, I. News. Reelection with California. Of course, he did win the first time, of course. I mean, the last Republican win California. I think it was was was Reagan. Yes. So I mean, you can be elected a president. You can be a Republican elected president without New York and California, and he's going to be there you go. I want to ask you I really make millions by saying he's not gonna win California. I want to ask you about this. He doesn't care about being on the ballot. That I didn't say that. He doesn't want to be on the ballot..

I have never been in a position as I say often where I go to the bathroom and come back out again a minute and a half later, and I throw it everything I prepared because something new has happened that is huge. And that it completely trumps everything else. I've never seen this kind of churn. Have you know, I have not none of us have. And I think that's a lot of what the administration experiences throughout you know. His entire administration cabinet secretaries staffers, the west Wayne everybody, so how do you keep that cannot last forever? You it has to calm down. I I don't know that you could be at this kind of level of chaos continuously. And I know he likes it.

Who's who does that? If the chief of staff doesn't have that capacity. I think I think they probably have that flow of communication certainly with the Senate. But I just have to believe given.

Well, what I did for a living for many years was to elect bobsledders to win elections, not necessarily certainly was never in an administration. But so for me, it was all about fifty percent plus one election day, and how to get there. Look at this towards you know, the president's reelection. I still think he has an opportunity to be reelected. I think we generally do not historically throughout elected first term presidents or after the first term unless the economy's in absolute wreck. So far economy stays strong continues to grow if their jobs, and if people are feeling good about where they are financially. Economically has a very good opportunity to win reelection. And again, it depends on what happens with love the other moving parts of the Muller inclusion when it comes to conclusion you worked with Mitt Romney as a media consultant senior adviser, I was wondering a lot of people wondered why he took the shot that he did coming in because you usually do stuff for reason to elevate you to to to stake out your position does that you know, him. So do you have some insight into why did that because everybody says to me, I don't get that? He'd he also alienated a large group. Guys who could work with him. And there was no upside for him to do that. It was there. You must be pretty smart guy. He knows politics is the grew up with it. So what was the situation? Is a wonderful guys wonderful, man.

His his image has been there's been burned in two particularly on the Republican side. You know, we know who Mitt Romney is there's no snow more definition that needs to be to be done. But when I thought about, you know, how they tell you when you go to jail pick the biggest guy and beat them up to show. You are it felt like he was coming in and saying here's who I am. I'm not going to be messed with, but it doesn't necessarily accomplish anything. Well, I'm personally not a big fan of folks on the same team that began to take shots at fellow team members.
