"So having spoken publicly one said only pursuant to a subpoena from the United States Congress I got another source here hold on a minute hello this is from and see here so this from C. N. B. C. army lieutenant colonel Alexander Veneman a National Security Council staffer whose testimony about president Donald Trump and house impeachment hearings angered the president was escorted out of the White House there is no question in my mind of any American why this man's job is over why this country now has one last soldiers serving it at the White House another portion of the statement from then means lawyer David Pressman and of course this removal of then men from the White House this is just two days after the Senate acquittal of president trump and the question is yeah then when was subpoenaed to testify I don't think it should lie to Congress and he talked about what he had been aware of in regard to the Ukrainian phone call so I guess the question is should he be removed I mean does that come across as vindictive listen I I did I expect women to remain at the White House I did not know I heard earlier that he was going to be reassigned to somewhere within the department of defense but I don't see that in the statement from yeah I don't see that here in a statement from villains are turning I got more the statement here let me let me see if I can blow this up I've got a tweet they're a bunch of journalists are are tweeting the full statement from Veneman's attorney I love the only grab a part one this is important because this is breaking news Vinland ejected here and I'm still trying to balance a couple of things here now granted the president was past presidential supporters pissed that he testified and had things that were not flattering to say about trump and the phone call on July twenty fifth the president's the Lenski of Ukraine but again if you observe certain things and you're being subpoenaed by Congress I think the last thing you want to do is lie under oath so here's more from the statement from Alexander then men lieutenant colonel from his lawyer he writes today lieutenant colonel Alexander Veneman was escorted out of the White House worry is dutifully serve the country I his country and his president he does so haven't spoken of Paul are having spoken publicly once and only pursuant to a subpoena from the United States Congress there is no question in the mind of any American why this man's job is over why this country now has one less soldiers serving it at the White House LTC them them was asked to leave for telling the truth his honor his commitment to write frightened the powerful during his decades of service to this country LTC Lieutenant Commander Alexander I'm sorry lieutenant colonel rather lieutenant colonel Alexander Vinland has served quietly but Dora fully Eddie is served with honor he came into the public eye only one subpoenaed to testify before Congress and he did what the law demanded in recent months many entrusted with power in our political system have cal ward out of fear and yet a handful of men and women not in doubt with prestige or power buddy quip with only a sense of right born out of years of quiet service to their country made different choices they courageously chose to honor their duties with integrity the trust the truth and to put their faith in country ahead of fear and they have paid a price the truth has cost lieutenant colonel Alexander them in his job his career and his privacy he did what any member of our military is charged with doing every day he followed orders he obeyed his oath and he served his country even when doing so was fraught with danger and personal peril and for that the most powerful man in the world bullied by the silence the pliable and the complicit has decided to exact revenge lieutenant colonel Alexander then leaves the White House today but we must not accept the departure of truth duty and loyalty that he represents in this country right matters and so does truth truth is nonpartisan if we allow truthful voices to be silenced if we ignore their warnings eventually there will be no one left to warn us that's the statement from lieutenant colonel Veneman's lawyer that's the full statement from ambassador David Pressman who was legal counsel to Alexander van that lieutenant colonel United States Army this is you again what what what is the read here you know you have people that call him a snake and he was a turn cold and he ratted on the president what if he observed the phone call if he thought that what was said on the phone call was not proper not correct was not perfect and he was subpoenaed by Congress and here he is a military man he is sworn is service to this country and to tell the truth if he lied he be in violation of US military cold subject to court martial so he tells the truth is getting punished now this is a tough situation this is very very difficult this is a man that head towards of duty overseas in Iraq or Afghanistan or both I can't remember exact exactly where but this man did get injured does have a Purple Heart for service to this country was he supposed to lie before Congress and I think it's important folks to point out that also many trump supporters in Congress you had Republicans members of the house of representatives you've had Republican senators that have supported trump they voted against witnesses against impeachment article one until in the United States Senate this week but some of those very supportive and outspokenly support of Republicans that have shown support for trump and I'm not talking about Susan Collins or yeah some of the senators or Mitt Romney I'm I'm not talking I'm talking about some that have shown a lot of unwavering support for president trump they did say several of the call was not perfect the call was improper and the call was problematic you know I'll I'll give you an example Lamar Alexander Marco Rubio Ted Cruz it out you you had some of those that have said that it was impeachable so how was it that said it was impeachable right yeah right yeah yeah yeah he he does some some here here Rubio said Marco Rubio the senior senator from Florida said that you know sometimes when something is committed that is impeachable it doesn't warrant removal from office so again you had some that are very supportive of trump it Lamar Alexander in Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz all of them said that the call was improper and I refuse as a radio talk show host as a radio entertainer and an observation Meister a common Terry Meister I I refuse to be a sick affect and I've said all along that the call was not perfect I I don't think it was impeachable I don't think that the offense was impeachable but it was not a perfect phone call the the call was problematic and trump should not have done now part of what's been successful for president trump with a large portion of the unwavering base is that he just keeps repeating his lines over and over again perfect phone call read the transcript well no transcript was ever provided it was just a recounting it was a summary in the memorandum we don't have the actual transcript of the phone call has not been released so you can't read the transcript so don't use the terminology read the transcript because there was no transcript provide bottom line fact but the deal is is that with the president and it's been very successful for him is that he will just repeat a lot of the same things over and over again and a lot of the base does support and believes it I can't be dishonest with myself nor this audience and I'm sorry if I'm just not a a propaganda repeat machine I'm just not gonna do it the call was not perfect the call should not have gone the way that it went it was not a perfect phone call that was so you know it all is a beautiful phone call no what was not and many Republicans are trump supporters in Congress have also said not perfect but I am also an agreement just move on from this stop calling a pole or prefer phone call Mister president you were not in you are not removed from office and I didn't think again I did not think that it warranted the duly elected president of the United States and I've said this all along I want to see trump just to fulfill the bulk of his policies that I like I subscribe to just move forward so hopefully we can put this behind us and the president can continue to work on his agenda which I like most of it and is good for this country and can make this country better there's no doubt about and we're staring at what I think is the ultimate arbiter I said this all along instead of the house going through their impeachment drama is left the country the site we have an election coming up in November that's going to be the final say on whether president trump is re elected to a second term or is knocked and one of these dumbass Democrats I mean the field we're looking at my well I I I want to vomit with most of this field of the Democrats have at eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine I like to hear from members of the military if you are active duty if you are retired what are your thoughts on lieutenant colonel then men being escorted off the White House property some reports earlier said that he would be reassigned within the D. O. D. and we have the lawyers saying essentially is careers all over does that mean no reassignment of a big thrown out or is he just gonna be I guess they can't use the can't thrown out but they can make his life miserable and you know thrown in some basement corner somewhere but I'd love to hear from military if you're active if you are retired I love the from officers either current or retired what are your thoughts on him and being thrown around the White House and what do you do in this situation if he was privy and monitored and he was part of the the team that was you listening to this phone call and your call to testify Hey you think the phone call was not perfect as Marco Rubio Ted Cruz Lamar Alexander and other Republicans have said what was then men supposed to say I love to hear from.

"There's another poster colder out there Stephanie Miller is gorgeous it just forty four just spelling out the words of it is the Stephanie Miller show getting him to live in studio you know what that means there's only one Charlie Pierce political columnist for esquire dot com as everybody me good morning Charlie here's learning journey I listen I know you've been up all night Charlie I don't know were you in charge of a I what what happened god Bob a cluster of alarm yeah yeah yes wow so we're gonna have results today they're saying they're saying sometime today is sort of a you know that this is the the hamster gets a little bit of a rest that gets put back on the wheels I mean Charlie seriously you know obviously with a lot of discussion before even last night happened about how ridiculous and undemocratic caucuses are but I mean watching it what was it like there because I was very smoothly run but small pockets on an Indian reservation up by up like a rabbit no one off without a hitch very much Adrianne got to delegate that was I was there to see that happen in real life and I got the car back in line all of the breaking loose I have no idea I had no idea what was going on yeah well okay so I guess we'll know today if I know it so that's the thing is you have to we were saying watching a Charlie you know with the TV is focusing on one side and you're like older sixteen hundred albums it was hard to get a a sense right well yeah I mean it was I mean it from where I was I mean that getting I could I be I got we don't Bernie Sanders took the precinct that with that pretty pretty handily but I don't think you know how to prove anything and I mean you know I I just happened to be that easy he had worked this particular precinct in the end of that road resume the reservation very hard not that I had no idea that the that was number one that it was going to get to be so screwed up and number two that they would go into a bunker and not provide any information at all yeah yeah I and this just summed up the whole caucus I thought you liked within one to one precinct an attendee brought an X. feel bottle of wine dropped and it shattered everywhere and now that I'm not drinking it was not me but that was thanks simile from one out but I'm already that woman two delegates I think that person might think that person might well be part of the Iowa Democratic Party but I'm exactly you comment god I'll let you take all the incoming from whoever's for whoever but I you tweet I'm accused of being a rationally bothered by Mister but a judge but really his campaign's complaint gets the last DMR Paul Crist and then he comes out with no returns reported actually JFK at the Brandenburg gate how is this not turning in housing not turning into democratic Mitt Romney and I get it that everybody gave the victorious speech but I do feel like his was we like I thought it was incredibly over the top yeah it really was we obviously one and it's just like I I just thought it was yeah we got a normal we got an answer victoriously okay how do we know that yeah I am to have covered the Boston Marathon would throw the release so I have some experience when I don't get me wrong I use incredibly impressive and I is I've said I'd be thrilled with any of them as president I it just but you are you said I'll be on Chris Hayes a twelve fifteen eastern I put to declare victory at that time right now it's true that I did when I know what and the press professor on senator warned person she said she's been what did you get one line out but she's only a we don't know that yet and someone scream you that was the person who didn't drop their bottle of wine anyway well we shall see I don't wait we were just saying no I if you look back cause trouble you've covered how many of these I was generally not predictive anyway many is initial seems like all my god why is there so much focus on this well I believe and I think you're gonna see a change in that for sure yeah I think it's of this this has got to be the death knell yeah I think it is if it does not always not only is it unfair to like everybody in the in the you know the better thing yeah yeah you were a whole piece about you said that I what the hell is in the sense in the system or one poll from a good mid size newspaper will so much influence over the presidential nominating process it throws into panic a system that's already complicated and undemocratic in the in the extreme yeah I I know we sent a lease we sawed boy talk about watching the sausage being made last night all right you know and and you know after two weeks of watching the thought that the the out foul tasting a call I written thought that you get me in Washington you know I mean it it it with just the press I mean it was it was it was more despair it was even more aid needed I'll point across the situation is completely dispiriting even worse yeah yeah I I mean you wrote a piece about Republicans letting your freak flags fly now that they have the votes for impeachment Marlon Alexander Marco Rubio just admitted the president did that which of of you know of that he's accused and it just it still is astounding right that that I don't want to say you but even god bless you you do talk about Adam Schiff you said trip is now shredding the legal ship is going down with all guns blazing I mean he was the one thing yesterday telling the gave me hope like a light in the dark right it was astonishing to me over the weekend now many of them got up at that yeah I did so what which I thought was going to wind up you know which I presumed was going to be the the fall back position anyway yeah it was well it will it's it's at least something you know you could say with a relatively straight face right are you can't no you cannot you absolutely cannot make the case that you didn't do this yeah yeah and I I you know and on cue you know one day they're all like all I don't think I'll do it again though I mean thank you we have the story that he is going to target his political enemies starting with Elton and on down and get billed bark to prosecute I mean if he's going to try to put John Bolton in prison yeah and this is where we are going to try to play and win the grand going to launch a brief investigation will take two and a half years yes you so we're going to win investigate dot the bidens right a you know was it a Joni Ernst said we will teach Biden right it if he's elected we will can I I don't think I don't think we're gonna have to worry about yeah I was just going but that's the other thing too early to hate to say I mean a lot of Joe Biden but this is like his thinking that this will pass this will all pass once trumps gone it's like really know they're going to impeach you the second you collected if you're the nominee I mean I really you know I like to get all excited and I think the one thing we can assume from the numbers that we don't have yeah I had a terrible night yes yeah yeah it seems like I mean it's entirely possible he finished behind yeah and also so much but right from what I hear that I was that to my register poll that was scuttled yeah apparently it had Biden in fourth place all right now yeah but we'll we'll never know that for sure because he was startled right it seems that I'm wrong I'm used again hard to say but it seems like Warren what seems like Biden and Bernie underperform from what I was reading and and be of Warren and return peace over perform what was I and who knows what was expected I guess very underperform but only because the last time he was the only game in town right right right Martin o'malley didn't performer all right and yeah I mean that the the what did the vote with the vote was more divided up into one last time I think he did very well I mean I think I think if the who's in Bernie okay very well I think he's up in the high twenties yeah there was a problem he was expected to win right so I don't even know Charlie this point and again because we didn't get that last minute Pollock what fruit for was expected to give you know I am from might want to look like burning was expected to have to run away with it so was it what with me what was your take on what you expected on which I think is that when they finally announced the numbers of things in the high twenties or or you know there was some talk you can end up with thirty percent of all which would have been a landslide right given the nature of the god of the campaign you know I think you know and I think you're right you know you're going to see him at about twenty seven and and judge or worn at about twenty two to somewhere around twenty two and then what does that mean and delegates from because that's really all that matters yeah I mean I we I know that this is an app that with that seventy one voters and Bernie got I think thirty nine of them and that night he got five voters Hey you got five delegates and Warren got to an injury and got to I actually fighter yank it delegates last night yeah I always worth going to say so let's talk about the impeachment trial you re tweeted to someone mention says he believes there's bipartisan four four four ports for censure of the president's actions could be Hager would not going check by the Senate if they go the center room you just settle bowl Pocky I mean is this a waiver so he doesn't have to vote to convict this is ridiculous I mean I yes it is still waited to pretend you're doing the job right and you know I mean if you want to look if they want to do it let him do it I don't care yeah it will be meaningless a light house all right it'll be I mean immediately meaningless when they centered in your Jackson over the back of the UFC one of every it expunged yeah as we know I would it's got a lot of work out are you won't have any funny just they'll just ignore it yeah and by the way you know as usual like Lamar Alexander I'm sure he'll be he's learned a lesson now he'll be check it's so an on Q..

"He send the aid he sent the aid because he was found out to be holding up the aid in order to get a quid pro quo that's why he did it so let me ask you again I don't mind a circular conversation actor John yeah I need an attorney that's conjecture in this is how we use what we don't know these arguments you know with all due respect it is not conjecture okay when the whistle blower report came out that's when the president release the eight okay now let's put on the side do you believe that it is right for a president of the United States of America to ask the president of a foreign nation to investigate a political opponent and as he did hold up a hand them release the eight when it was discovered it's a simple question I don't know why you can't answer so on three what I I'll see I'll say I I see that is is inappropriate as it was for the Senate to do the same thing when they approached the leaders of Ukraine and tellement they're finding potentially could be hold on hold on a minute I mean really I understand you don't want to admit what is clear Lamar Alexander Marco Rubio Mitt Romney Susan Collins and I'm sure tomorrow more Republicans will stand up and say yes he did something wrong he should not have done it but we don't feel it rises to the level of an offense for which he should be removed from office is it so hard for you to say that it isn't but when you say that he didn't release the funds in time and I hear that it came out in the hearing that he believed to fifteen days before the mandatory explain to you that ninety minutes after his conversation with the president of Ukraine he held up the aid I mean you don't you can you can go back you can go forth but he might be doing what your stamps do understand how invasive you're being you understand you we can your own case you would be a lot better off if you said to me yes he did something wrong yes he should never had that conversation with the president Ukraine yes he should never held up the aid but I day from Oakland do not believe this rises to the level for which she will be removed from office that's what the last parts true you what you just said that saying you can't parse it like that that's not right don't you understand that's the problem the problem is that the trump supporters seem able to say yes he did something wrong I don't know why he did I will tell you he's done a lot of things wrong he's he's rude and obnoxious there's no question I don't care if he's rude obnoxious telling you I am able to see that you want to say I'm not that I can't use the valuable all I asked you to do is say yes the president of the United States did something wrong but in my view it doesn't rise to the level for which he should be removed from office it's not so difficult it's not that it's difficult John easy but you're aware of that beyond a reasonable doubt and I'm not saying I understand you never gonna never going to get you to say what I'm asking you to say even though Republicans I learned some things from you but I'm just trying to explain why so I'm I'm open I'm going to research the most up to date but if you want to know why Republicans aren't it is beyond we we we all you may have a point but we're not convinced it's not that you may not be convinced but the Republicans in the Senate our the Republicans in the Senate are don't you understand they concede every thing all I am saying and they add the caviar but he shouldn't be removed from office I appreciate your call James sends an email John do you think a radio talk show host says the wrong words on radio about how should be removed from the radio station no I'm just saying words to present a United States taking action don't you understand it's the president for god's sake four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten John Rothman right here on teaching.

"Welcome to pods of America. I'm John Fabra. I'm John Lovett. Tommy Detour Dan Dan Pfeifer. We are recording this in Des Moines. Just hours away from the very first primary contest of the twenty two thousand election. The Iowa caucuses We've all been driving around the state for the last couple a couple of days trying to hit up as many candidates events as we can and talk to some caucus-goers and volunteers. You're going to hear some of those conversations in a bit and we'll talk about what the race looks like as we head into the final day but first we should talk about what appears to be the end of Donald Trump's impeachment trial on Friday Senate Republicans voted to make this the only impeachment trial in history. Where the public was not allowed to hear from new witnesses or consider new evidence? The vote failed fifty one to forty nine with Mitt Romney and Susan and Collins as the only two Republicans voted with the Democrats a number of Republicans including Lamar Alexander Marco Rubio and Rob Portman basically said that even if the president was guilty not of bribing a foreign government to investigate his political opponent. He shouldn't be held accountable for it and the rest of them just said he didn't do anything wrong so the final vote to acquit quit. Trump will be held on Wednesday right after he delivers the state of the Union on Tuesday. Night so All's well that ends well guys what are your Thoughts on the entire Republican Party officially endorsing soliciting foreign interference in our elections. I don't think it's good. Yeah Not Tuck Great. Yeah great all right. Listen we should just let you all now all right we've been in des Moines for three days and I gotta say we've been going surprisingly a heart. You just made it sound like spring break going. Surprisingly hard to events in council bluffs where we watched Pete do Cusani's sure it's been hard for me to read the stories because I just don't WanNa read the New York Times both sides take and then fly off the handle and tweet for seven hours about it but it was our best chance probably with like earned media driven campaign to educate the American people about our corrupt Venal president who abused power at every chance Most of the country agrees that he did what we all think he did. which was Uses power to target during the Joe Biden and they don't think it's right but they wanted to serve out his term. We probably hit the limits of Fox. News controlled you know right wing media ecosystem and the rest of it is going to have to be a messaging to those people with paid ads and social media and other new unique ways to get to them. 'cause the media filter Protected Republicans is always the Democrats. Did exactly exactly what they needed to do. Based on the old Rosa politics they convinced three quarters of the country that there should be witnesses in the Republicans didn't care and they convinced Majority of Americans that he should be removed from office. Yes right like the I. I know there's different pulls out here and there's not a big majority but all the polls if you do all the average is is right now. There's a slim majority of Americans who think that the United States should be removed from office. Just to be there. I was referring to out today. NBC One today. Which is forty-six? Said Ed remove forty nine cents. But this wasn't a failure it wasn't a failure evidence or compelling messaging from the Democrats succeeded at convincing the country there should at least at bare minimum among be a real trial. And it's worth exploring. I think why that did not result in witnesses because a lot of the takes on this is basically basically been either Republicans are just horrible. Like they're just bad people and they don't care or that they are in the thrall of this cult of trump. And I think both of those are over simplistic explanations for what happened. Cory Gardner is not insane. He knows that his best political play is is to stick with trump because the structures of American politics help protect him from the will of the majority. That's why McConnell did this is why all these other Republicans in it and that is is a problem that is much harder to solve than just getting rid of trump. I also think they looked at someone like a least phonic congresswoman from New York who decided to go. Oh from being seen as a moderate to full Maga in just lighter hair and fire during the trials with a bunch of other much crazier members of Congress and resulted in her raising zing millions and millions of dollars so this has become a strategy for these people to raise as much money as they can't from trump space as quickly as they can. House will just think you know to Dan's point Thomas Point it's this whole time there's been a lot of beseeching of these Republicans why they won't show courage what they show courage. Why wouldn't they be brave and and It is a symptom of how broken our politics is that doing the right thing. In this case on an issue which there is broad majority support requires political bravery every and that's because of the incentive structures right wing media. That's because of what trump will do. That's because of where this support for. Impeachment may be distributed right. Where where are the people who support impeachment are they in the places where these senators Think they need votes and the other piece of this too is. I've seen a lot of people talking. About how the failure to have witnesses at this trial. Trial is a constitutional crisis. It's a constitutional crisis. It's a fundamental failure of systems of the Levers of power to restrain the executive. And I think that there's some truth to that. But there's a big assumption based into that assertion and it is not only will. These senators failed to do what is necessary need to hold trump accountable to have basic rules of the road for elections. It's that there's an assumption that these senators won't pay a political price for it and we can hem and haw all we want. We can be angry all we want but thinking more and more about how do we change those incentive structures so that senators can be a check back against presidents of their own party. I think it's one of the hardest and biggest challenges we face for one of our two parties. We just got to vote them out. Look I think I do think this this is a problem or it should be a problem for some of the Senate Republicans like at the end of the day Another we've before a number of these Senate Republicans were up in Twenty only twenty collins. Tillis Mick Sallie Gardner. They'RE GONNA run campaign saying that they are independent voice is in Washington that they're not completely tied at trump. They can't do that anymore. This is now I mean there's a million examples since trump has taken office. Why this is no longer the Republican Party but the party of if trump but this is sort of the final nail in the coffin of that that they they cannot distance themselves from Donald Trump and his behavior and his approval anymore and for a time of year? Right like if the Calculus was. We probably can't distance ourselves from Donald Trump so we might as well stick with them and then at least get the fundraising out of it. At least get the support out of it. But we've been talking about the politics of all this. I think it's worth just noting how serious the consequences of what just happened are like it has has now been you know. There's been a stamp of approval by the United States. Congress that any president who has enough votes to make sure that he's not convicted acted in the Senate can solicit for interference in an election can investigate an American citizen for no reason whatsoever can launch a political investigation whether it's your political opponents whether it's a private citizen doesn't matter they're not going to hold the President United States accountable for that kind of behavior and even some senators who think it wasn't abuse of power or at least think it it was wrong or inappropriate. Think well it's wrong inappropriate. But I guess there's nothing we can do to hold him accountable or they refused to hold them accountable and and they and they then say well. That's what the election sionist for. But of course he's dragging election if you can rid if he can rig the election to win hours to rely on the election as a means to check the president yeah heads. Republicans Publican's win tells Democrats loose that assessment senator I was really struck by Lamar. Alexander was on meet the press this morning and he you know he was supposed to be even watching watching these guys answer questions by the way. That's the only satisfied all this and he obviously did the wrong thing openness. He was one of the rare Republican senators. WHO said that? That trump actually did something wrong but so chuck todd was asking about this and he said well instead of calling if you want investigation to buy instead of Ukraine he should have called the Attorney General L. which is also fucking power. You can't do that. You can't do that. You can't call the Attorney General and say investigate my opponent. It doesn't work that way. God Bill Clinton had a fucking conversation with Loretta Lynch on a tarmac and it was the biggest scandal for fucking that was seen as inappropriate. A hello conversation and now they're saying oh well not foreign governments but he could have just called up bill. Barnes investigate job. Now Shit is happening now. I wish Bill Clinton had it just Harangue Loretta Lynch on the tarmac. Getting more investigations. I just think You know a lot of people on twitter and other places have been hoping and praying insane. I loved that they think Republicans will do the right thing. I just think it's not a trump era problem like this. Just a historical mystery of what Republicans always do in this situation like when Barry Goldwater ran bannon was seen as a crazy. FRINGY shockingly right wing candidate Richard. Nixon went all in to support him knowing that he needed their base next time when he wanted to run and it was a brilliant strategy sheet helped him get elected like rinse. Repeat on. These things are always going to appeal to the most fervent part of your base yet. The only way out of this and this is the transition to our next. The topic is Defeating many elected Republicans as humanly possible. That's it that's the that's the only hope here and then doing something very aggressive after you have it right unless right. The reason we ended up in the situation is structural political advantages for Republicans and Democrats get into power. They have to take aggressive action for structural political reform. You're right this is a different conversation if their democratic senators from the Washington. DC in the Senate and the and and this is why you know. The presidential race is obviously the most important thing and we're focusing on all the time but flipping. The Senate is also incredibly important to you know. Brian shots always tweets at least a couple times a week. Pick a Senate race adopt a Senate race We need to keep the house. We need to flip Senate and we need to take the presidency and the Party needs to come together no matter who wins this nomination So Vote Save America Dot Com. which she's another plug for that which we just rolled out again last whenever you see a tweet about what one campaign surrogate sent about another delete it delete the APP go to vote.

"Good Evening Erin. Brunette and the breaking news history is unfolding as we speak right now. The impeachment trial of president trump is about to resume any second. They've been in recess S. for nearly eighty minutes trying to do some sort of a backroom deal to figure out how to move forward motion to defer witnesses to allow witnesses was defeated and now now the senators are going to be taking on amendments. They have been debating what comes next. That final vote. We now believe will be Wednesday and I want to go straight to Democratic Senator Chris coons. WHO's about to head back into that room and senator? What can you tell us? Let's start with right now. You're going back into that room. What happens the rest of tonight? We'll Aaron that's really in the hands of the Republican majority right now unexpecting that we're going to be called back in for a vote any moment the majority leader will lay out whatever he's been able to work out with his caucus which is the majority of the Senate And then I expect a series of amendment votes to be offered by the Democrats Frankly trying through a number of votes to force first reconsideration of this central vital question. Will there be any witnesses. Will there be any documents our mind. You Aaron this will be the very first impeachment richmond trial in the entire history of the Senate to have no witnesses the last impeachment trial when it happened right as I got here. Ten years ago of a judge from Louisiana had had twenty six witnesses. Seventeen of whom had not appeared before their appearance in front of the Senate Trial Committee. I think the house managers made an excellent case today about why we should be hearing from John Bolton and other witnesses that frankly it seems at this point though. Of course I mean look look I understand. You GotTa make your point on these amendments. But you're talking about You know taking a last stand the next status Ruby. Closing arguments on Monday and a vote on Wednesday is what we understand. Is there any more you can tell us about the deal from here to make it clear that would mean at that. The vote comes after the state of the Union. And after the Iowa caucuses. well as as I said Aaron. That's what I have heard through press. Reports is what the majority leader is trying to persuade to support. I don't think that will get much support in in our caucus. There's a lot of folks who would like to see us. Keep fighting and keep pushing for more votes tonight and tomorrow and to be here for our our arguments on the floor but given that he was able to secure fifty one votes against Anymore witnesses or any more documents. It seems likely. The the majority leader has the votes to drive through the process that he's fighting for so there are some Republicans who want an acquittal tonight. They wanted it very quickly right. There were some oh who did want a chance to talk to to stand up and say something and that's in part why the majority leader is going to allow these Closing statements and senators to speak Monday Tuesday today and then that vote on Wednesday have you talked to any of those Republicans who actually wanted a chance to stand up and speak and if so why what do they want. What do they say? Why is this important to them? I've talked talked to a couple of my colleagues. Frankly it's hard I. I'm normally someone who works across the aisle fairly well but this has been a really hard two weeks and I'm very a disappointed in some of my colleagues very frustrated at this process As we saw just today the New York Times reported more breaking news from the upcoming book by the former National Security Adviser John Bolton suggesting that president trump was in the room with John. Bolton with Rudy Giuliani with the White House counsel months early weeks earlier. Excuse me than we previously knew. Why why they don't want more evidence? I don't understand but a number of them are making the the argument that this is not an impeachable offense and I think frankly The consequences of their deciding that this is not an impeachable offense. We'll be long-lasting in grave for our country senator. I appreciate your time very much. Of course he's referring to Senators Lamar Alexander Marco Rubio others who said assume everything that happened is true. They don't believe it's it's impeachable. I want to go straight to Phil Mattingly out front live on Capitol Hill. So what are you learning about this schedule which senator coons seemed to confirm. But what are the details here about what happens tonight and next Aaron let me lay out exactly. What's going to happen? The rest of the way and the impeachment trial something. We didn't have an answer to until just a couple of minutes ago. I just got my hands. On the final resolution that majority leader McConnell will introduce on the floor and just a few minutes and that resolution lays out this tonight there will be votes on three different sorry. Four Democratic amendments moments. We've seen the text of those amendments yet. Those amendments are expected to fail with Republicans holding the majority in the chamber. Still keep an eye on what Democrats are putting up on that. After those votes are done the chamber will vote on this resolution to basically dictate the next five days after they vote on the resolution dictates the next five days they will go into recess. They will adjourn for the weekend. They will return on Monday at eleven. AM At that point. They will hold closing arguments each side the managers in the White House counsels team. We'll have two hours of peace to make their closing arguments by Wednesday. At four PM. They will have the final vote on whether to acquit or remove. The president from office. Now I should note Erin. Between Monday and Wednesday senators will have the the opportunity to go to the floor and speak about their views related to the trial and the decisions. They're going to make related to that vote but those that time we'll be out of the trial so essentially as we've seen senators cannot speak while the trial is in session. Senators can really move on the trials in session either so the only time the Senate will actually be in the impeachment trial next week. Will we'll be Monday during the closing arguments. And then when they come back in at four pm on Wednesday to have the final vote inbetween centers will have the opportunity to come to the floor make public statements about their views views and essentially lay out. Why they've decided to do one thing or the other two things to point out here? The behind the scenes that was going on where Republicans basically trying to the split inside the Republican Republican conference as to whether to push through all of this tonight or whether to give some of their senators time to be able to make statements publicly because of that McConnell did not have the votes essentially to move of this forward tonight as he initially planned to do because of that as well. Democrats had a bit of leverage here and what they wanted was to ensure that the president was not acquitted before Suze nights state of the Union address. Republicans countered saying. You've got four people that are running for president right now would probably like to be in Iowa on Monday. Democrats didn't budge on this issue and I would note. The chamber is only in session in impeachment trial from eleven to three PM on Mondays. Centers could conceivably get out and go back to Iowa at some point that time Aaron. That's the evening absolutely the Caucasus where they could actually go and speak where they can actually go and try and help bring people to their side during the caucus process. So that's the whole schedule. It's been a little confusing quiet and fluid. But that's where we stand. Phil can I just ask you one question. I understand it so at the resolution. I'm just reading it now. The one that you obtained at the conclusion of the final arguments by the house and the President Right which is As you said about three PM on Monday give her a give or take a little bit later. That quarter of impeachment stand adjourned till four PM on Wednesday. At which time they will vote so so explain between those two times are they. Are they just going to be able to get up and give speeches as they wish about how they feel. How does that part work? So the way it's been explained to me and I think it's very important. You point out that the court of impeachment is a journey with that means is the Senate can be in session and essentially being in morning business or on regular business and that means senators can actually come to the floor and speak and the expectation is each. Senator will be provided about fifteen minutes to make a final statement. That's not in the resolution. But that's what I've been told up to this point and the reason why they have to adjourn between the closing closing argued the end of the closing arguments on Monday and that final vote coming back into session at four PM on. Wednesday is so senators can actually speak on the floor. The only time we've heard from senators throughout this process is them announcing that they're submitting a question to the desk during the sixteen hours of the question answer period. They are not allowed to speak at any other time. This will allow them to do. Just that. I would make one other point point. This is a difference because nine hundred ninety. Nine and senators did have deliberations where they did give statements but it was all behind closed doors because that was the only way based on the Senate rules they should be allowed to talk inside an impeachment trial. That's why they're adjourning to give their members space to be able to speak publicly about this so we'll be able to see it all play out between Monday and Wednesday. They're going to be the fascinating meeting moments That I think we also very much want to hear you know you get a statement from Lamar Alexander or for Marco Rubio but we want to hear him one here what they really have to say. All right we'll stay with us as I said we're AH anti this move to vote on this resolution. The villages laid out any moment to happen. I want to go to our panel. David Axelrod let me start with you. What do you make about the battle battle that went on here to even get to this agreement Right Senator Schumer didn't want the president acquitted before the state of the Union and the Republicans. Were saying Oh but then your senators may not happy apple to be an Iowa caucuses. I mean this was. This was a an all out. Brawl wasn't all out brawl and obviously made possible fill said by divisions within the Republican Caucus From some members who wanted to be heard on this once once that happened it opened up this opportunity but to me. This is just a footnote in the larger drama here and you know what was interesting to me. Today was I was just. How compelling the arguments were from the managers the house managers for the need for witnesses? And you know I think the reason that Lamar Alexander Murkowski wanted their statements have before it was because they anticipated that the case for witnesses is obvious and and the case against it is also obvious. which is they? Don't WanNa hear it They know what happened and either they say it was justified. Or they say that it it was wrong but not impeachable but they don't want any more information because it's only gonNa make things worse for the president and they want to end. This McConnell wanted to tonight Schumer has prolonged it beyond the state of the Union put as we knew from the beginning of this the outcome was preordained and prolonged it apart Laura because there are Republicans who want to have a chance to make their in detail their feelings on the floor. But yet you had Lamar Alexander Marco Rubio Senator Toomey senator after senator come around say okay. Assume everything that says to Lamar Alexander. They made the case he did it. But it's not impeachable the idea of what it's not whether he did and we're going to do about it. I kind of Dershowitz effect honestly. Because when he made the statement about expanding executive authority when he made people's heads roll back and is will back thinking themselves. Are you who actually saying that Congress will doesn't have as much power at the president can do it every once. That was a defining moment for the senators to say I can't just say acquittal or conviction can't just say Yay or nathe witnesses. I'm going to have to explain to my constituents and the American people generally but I'm not maybe basing my decision off of that which is why. Think Lamar Alexander Dander took some great pains to talk about other issues but still it comes back that Dershowitz effect and what the power of arguments that are so outlandish and irresponsible. It causes the domino effect for others. Now explain why they're not being equally irresponsible or you can't you can't sell somebody something they don't want to buy. They all were looking. They were looking. I something to buy. I mean that's the ultimate truth right. Tim yes they're looking for somebody to buy what they have done is they have opened a tremendous can of worms because in the nineteen seventies Republicans and Democrats alike realized that the presidency had become so complex. There are ways for the president and to do harm to the constitutional system without violating the law. And that's why in the seventies they came to understand the really the concept of abuse of power and it was a bipartisan. I part is an understanding both in the house and it would have been in the Senate because we have a sense of what the Senate might have done that. Understanding of the power of abuse of power and the importance of making that also a threshold for impeachment has been thrown away right and which means if they don't you know it's the journey to acquittal that matters. How are they going to explain? Explain the difference between an impeachable abuse of power and something that was a bad whereas Marco Rubio said an abuse of power power. And he doesn't he doesn't have to be a crime but he thinks the voters should decide. All right we're GONNA come back in just a moment as we are waiting for them to come in with this crucial vote on this resolution..

"I mean, I think whoever gets into tonight and the next two. Pretty much. Regular. Yeah. Play every game. And they may start the season at Syracuse. But these are the guys who are either on the team or knocking on the door. I watch Joel network is we all do some time to get some news and stuff and Babcock said the other day says I'm putting my t- that I want starting last two, okay. Because taveras. Matthew hadn't played a game plan. And that's a specific situation for them. I personally I would expect that maybe the last game we're going to see very very close to the to the opening night lineup. But we'll see. We'll see. And and. The the big thing with the lightning far as I'm concerned is the first preseason game. I thought it was their worst. So far. It was. Yeah. I did. And I've listened to the radio and stuff and. You know, they played well in Nashville a lot of the Brookings played well and everything else. I'm looking forward to play the Panthers tonight. They play Thursday. Saturday. Shades in the past at sixteen when you played fourteen games again one year they played five in a row at the end of the preseason. I two was the last year we had the Nashville game in between the finish. Maybe it was two years ago. Very well. Let me at least tell you who's in tonight for both sides. Now, the Panthers have thirty two guys. Lots more players, and none are injured. So they do have some decisions to make. But I think they're roster looks very much like. Opening night roster sell for the lightning. He got Lawrence. Stamkos Miller is align. Polat point in kucherov Joseph Sara Lee conquer and then Danny Bartels begins lately debut with Mitchell Stevenson anniversary headman at Stroman are apparent defense. Mcdonagh and churn and then Kuku circuit with bass Leschi starting for the Panthers getting dot knob with Alexander bark. I've into UCS stat Jonathan Jonathan DOE is with Vincent tro. Check and my coffin who's now member of the Panthers. Henrik Bork Strub is playing a with Jared the candidate a smog in and Toronto is with their candidate. Sceviour defense you've got. Glad Matheson tessick. Julia milk yori with Alexander patrol the genes. Riber will start four Florida so fell the lightning side. Kuchar. Stamkos are not playing together. They did with bolcom first team. But volkov. He's still on the roster not playing tonight. But this may be a situation where coop wants to see. Stamkos kucherov with different guys. Play together they played with other players to over there. But in this preseason game. See how caloric biller? Stamkos looked together. Because I don't think that that was trio at any point after Miller arrived last year. I think so you're right. And Brayden point has played with kucherov before. Oh, yeah. So end of the year two years ago. No, senators, polite. Yeah. Yeah. So that line is. Remember the trio with Johnson, the triplets triplets that setup cannot forget the Trump. I didn't number never understood why they recalling triplets. Did you do you? I think the idea was that they were masked skilled, and so if I had three triplets a running around like lunatics identically. Okay. I got you. The other thing too. Is this vast LSU second game? He's got a he's got to play. And I'm sure he'll play you will probably won't play on Thursday, but might play Saturday in Florida. So those are the types of things I think guys get your timing better. You you like he wants all every. But you know, one note on the Panthers, which is interesting. So remember two years ago, the lightning missed the playoffs by a point. They had a furious finish. They went twenty six and four and lost thirty eight hundred last year the Panthers after the all star break what twenty five eight two. They missed the playoffs by one point. And they have made a few tweaks to their lineup. But for the most part, it's the same group coming back. I think they have a lot of both bantam. Yeah. Coming into the season kinda like the lightning felt last year. Now who knows how it's going to play out should lightly. Now the start that they had last year again this year. But I see some similarities there, you know, finishing strongly one year. Just missing it being so motivated to come back strong the next year, and they've got one of the better Centerman in the gaming Alexander Marco without a doubt. This guy can control the game when he wants to. And he always seems to play really well goods the lightning. So I think that's true against just about every probably does. Right. Yeah. He is that good. I I remember when they drafted him. I was third over and a lot of people questioned if but I remember talking to Dale Tallon about it and said, Phil skin is good. I said, well, I actually saw in a cage o- overseas when he was like seventeen years only, and he was good. Yeah. So he's a good player. But he got a good team. I think the Panthers are team that you're right. David Williams finished last year. They're going to be a playoff team in my mind. I don't know who's gonna miss, but I think the Panthers goaltending Knowle's up. We'll be a team to be reckoned. He stays healthy. I think if Longo stays healthy for sure. Thanks. It's thirty nine. While he's been trouble is but rhyme or play really well. Rymere's record last year was twenty two fourteen at six did a lot. He did a lot of the heavy lifting during that stretch run. Yes. Good. Get a chance to talk to China he's knocking on the door. Isn't it? He's very very close. Well, I haven't really seen him play. But Dave was telling me before. And I was talking to chief about it. This guy's pretty good player. Real good player. So those are decisions that. Are not fun to me. But they are because you've got play rice nonsense, the general manager the coaching boy. If we set the other night with Brian was here just because a player doesn't necessarily make the opening night roster. It's not like they're gone, and forgotten that it's competent confidence saying that Eric churn act is going to be in the NHL. I just don't know if it's going to be on October six, and he is really showed very well throughout this whole process. Even going back the training camp to the prospect that they had with the tournament. Probably not the best lightning player. One of the top ones that in a couple of games as a group they struggled. He stood. Joseph. Joseph president Joseph. Doc did not played very well. So what we need to break. We'll come back with your face off lighting Panthers. Rounding out the preseason with the first of three head.
