Testimony released from Trump's former Russia adviser
"News just released transcripts from the house impeachment inquiry revealing even more officials testifying under oath that they had a great great concerns about president. Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's work in Ukraine Fiona Hell of former Russia advisor to president trump. Testifying quote I was extremely family concerned. That whatever was that Mr Giuliani was doing might not be legal. Especially after you know people had raised with me these two gentlemen Parnis and and Fruman Ella E. Fruman of course to Giuliani associates. Who are arrested recently while trying to flee the United States and Lieutenant Colonel Alexander van the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council saying this about the July phone call or president? Trump urged Ukraine's president to help Giuliani. Dig Up dirt on the bites. Let's frankly up until that call you know. In certain regards. He was acting as a private citizen advancing his own interest to a certain extent. It wasn't until that call all that it became that that it became that he was pulled into kind of an official role all right. Let's discuss all of this out front. Now Greg Brower who was an assistant the FBI director Kerry Cordeiro who was the council to the US Assistant Attorney General for national security also with US tonight former Nixon White House counsel John Dean and former Republican congressman. Charlie Dent it has been a very busy news day going through these transcripts from two top White House officials. Carry to start with you witnessed ernest after witnesses testify and they had these concerns about. Giuliani what do you make of this of all. These officials testified that they knew what Giuliani was up to. They had these concerns. They did because we had there was an individual Rudy Giuliani who was not in government. who was doing things that from their perspective? At the as as far as State Department officials are White House officials working on national security related to Ukraine that he was stepping into interfering with what they were trying to carry out as legitimate foreign policy so on one hand you have a person not in government at all who is interfering in national security interests but then the second thing that but it also tells me is that there were a lot of people in the White House who knew what was going on. And it took the whistle blower to actually report it through an official channel Hannele and start that we part of this. I mean you have about it. He'll testifying a lot of people. Knew about what was going on. But you're right. It was the whistle blower who went through those channels. But what's interesting too is just the view of these officials Juliani. You know they're trying to do their official Government Work Greg. Then you have someone going rogue Outsides doing their own thing. I mean it kind of painted this picture of pure chaos when it came to Ukraine Policy Fiona Hill testified that John Bolton Liken Giuliani to a hand grenade alive handgrenade Do you think that's proven to be true. In all of this as you learn more and more Giuliani's role becomes more apparent and and not surprisingly so and and there was also the description of John Bolton oath you know Rudy's drug deal as if to dismiss this. Yeah exactly we have more understand the context around Right that's right and it would be hard enough frankly to have the national security and diplomatic Bureaucracy dealing with some kind of rogue operation if that rogue operation was parallel but legal. But in this case it appears that perhaps it wasn't even a legal rogue operation that not only complicates it's things for the govern- officials who are supposed to be pursuing national security and diplomatic relations but it it creates a whole Potentially impeachable the situation. And that's how it's playing out. It is how it's playing out John because this is all part of this. The Democrats impeachment inquiry. I WANNA bring up. What lieutenant colonel them and testified to who about acting chief of staff and they won't be head Mick? Mulvaney Vin was asked. Do you understand how he saw. Inland came to believe that this deliverable was necessary. This area and then men responded so I heard him say that this had been coordinated with White House Chief of Staff Mr Mick Mulvaney question. What did he say about that answer? He just Said said that he had had a conversation with Mr Mulvaney. And this is what was required in order to get a meeting. How significant is it to you that he testified that the president's acting chief of staff directed this quid pro quo essentially certainly gets closer to the president and and You know whether whether they'll claim that the president had no lodge we don't know yet Feel a hill gave the same testimony. Which cooperates spend Edmund? So it's a pretty strong charge and it certainly puts Mulvaney in the loop No question about that and Pamela. I'd I would just point out at this whole thing is just one giant conspiracy to extort a bribe. And it's very conspicuous. It's just no question and now how deep the president is. That's what the House is going to establish and so do you think this is an impeachable offense then because as we know bribery. According to the constitution is impeachable impeachable. Act John They have managed in this in this instance to come right within the definition of impeachable offenses. Because you the high crimes but how. But if if no one has made that directly to the president then then how do you make that case that he should be impeached impeached. Well you know it's interesting with Nixon When he was impeached they stayed away from conspiracy? Charges There is a reference in in in the minority report of all places that he conspired but the majority the Democrats with Nixon did not charge him with a conspiracy. All of that was very conspicuous. Louis in the in the evidence I so I don't think by precedent. They'll try to draw trump in through conspiratorial actions. They'll look for him being directly involved or enough. They'll look for testimony and we're they're gonNA find that is in the Document the the readout on

Who Is John Eisenberg? Trump Lawyer Moved Ukraine Transcript to Classified Server After Vindman Complained
"And today house democrats have released transcripts of the testimony given by former US s. ambassador to ukraine maria vich and former state department official michael mckinley we will be following that but meanwhile a top lawyer for the national security council counsel john eisenberg is a no show today for a scheduled deposition on capitol hill to find a subpoena an escalating the white house's legal battle with congressional democrats let's eisenberg is a key witness for the impeachment inquiry he reportedly was instrumental and locking down the transcript of president trump's july twenty fifth phone call with ukrainian union president by moving it to top secret server so let's learn more about who eisenberg is and his role in this whole saga tom hamburger is is an investigative political reporter for the washington post and tom last week alexander van men the top ukraine advisor at the white house testified that he listened in on that call where president trump asked the president of ukraine to investigate the biden's and vinson said he raised concerns to the white house's top national security lawyer earlier john eisenberg what was eisenberg's response according to your reporting so what we learned about colonel benjamin's testimony to the a house impeachment investigators is is this he was alarmed as he listened to president trump's call with ukraine's president on july twenty five so unnerved that he went immediately after listening to the call to see john eisenberg the white house legal adviser on national security parity to tell him that what the president did was wrong that it seemed to be violating US policy and seemed to be seeking a personal sola political favors from foreign leader he testified that he went to eisenberg's office because he was alarmed by what he had heard on the call and and the only response that he offered during the meeting right after the call was that the roughed transcript of the call the summary of the call should be placed in an unusual usual spot that is the highly classified top secret vault i'm usually reserved for documents that would reveal sources and methods for US intelligence awesome military operations not for presidential call transcripts in fact we're told it's unheard of or virtually unheard of for for such a call to be placed on a classified server like that so that was one step another was a couple of days after the conversation eisenberg approached vitamin again and said i'd like you not to talk to anybody about what we discussed and what you observed in the call again a by itself perhaps there's an innocuous explanation for this but in combination with a couple of other factors that we're talking about here it seemed seemed to some is though it was part of a pattern or could have been part of a pattern or an effort to conceal or berry the substance of the president's conversation with his counterpart in ukraine you also write that by the time vin men came to eisenberg and late july eisenberg was already familiar with concerns among white house awesome officials about the administration's attempts to pressure ukraine for political purposes what did he know and why is this important to note eisenberg was aware of concerns from the national security staff because a couple of weeks earlier on july ten presidents alinsky had sent a delegation of ukrainian indian officials to the white house to try to shore up relations with the US they couldn't figure out why it seemed there was a delay in getting face as to face meeting set up between the newly elected president and president trump and there was some concerns about whether legally mandated a military aid would be flowing to the ukraine and so they came to the white house these two emissaries end-july ten and had a meeting with the national security council staff but also with three other they're individuals one is a special envoy appointed by president trump mr samland another was energy secretary rick perry and the third was a special on on void to ukraine volcker and in the course of meeting with this group those three led by sandra fund seemed to be pushing a request for assistance in getting information that might be helpful to the president politically the conversation was a bit subtle but it so alarmed armed john bolton in this meeting that they had on july ten that he quickly called it to a close and then he later asked one of his associates the national security advisor sir for ukraine to report what was observed to legal office and so the the place that those bolton advisers went was once again john eisenberg so on july ten there was the first warning of an executive branch effort this time not involving the president personally but involving some of his top appointees to seemingly introduce a question of seeking political favors from the new ukrainian administration as a condition for getting a meeting meeting with president or getting needed aid has eisenberg or his lawyer responded to any of this eisenberg has so so far declined to comment and the white house has declined to comment the response that we have is really the response that is visible today on capitol hill which is where in the impeachment investigators hoped john eisenberg would be sitting to answer questions there will be an empty chair eisenberg is another of several figures at the top level of advisors to the president who are declining to respond to subpoenas and request testify in this impeachment inquiry and so he is one of these figures who is now part of this constitutional drama that we're witnessing between the demands of the legislative branch and the claims of special privilege by the white house in the office of the president and those other folks michael ellis also of the national security council as well as robert blair and brian mccormick of the white house office of management and budget they're all skipping this meeting as you said these meetings what will the the democrats do next now that these folks have decided not to testify so there are others who are facing request to testify who are even more senior one is john bolton the research resigned recently as national security adviser he remember is the guy who is at the top of this national the security establishment and in a sense the buck stops with him he would be a critically important witness and his testimony is considered vital so much to a follow that's tom hamburger investigative political reporter for the washington post tom thank you so much good to be with you

National security official to testify he was "concerned" by Trump's Ukraine call
"Who is lieutenant colonel Alexander Veneman well here's a few things to know he works at the White House as a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council he heard the call on July twenty fifth between president trump and president so Lynskey of Ukraine he's active duty arming and today he has testified in the impeachment inquiry under way on Capitol Hill and your national security correspondent Greg my re is here to tell us more had great Hey merrily so this is not and household name Alexander and I suspect most people never heard of them until this week what should we know about him please get this fascinating personal history he was born in Ukraine in the mid nineteen seventies when it was part of the Soviet Union and he has an identical twin and we'll have more on him in a moment their mother died when they were young and the father brought the twins and an older brother to New York when did men was three they settled in Brighton beach which is also called little Odessa because of all the Russian and Ukrainian immigrants many of them Jewish like that than men's after college he joins the military is sent to a rock at a time of heavy fighting in he's wounded in a roadside bomb and received a Purple Heart for this he speaks Russian and Ukrainian he's served at US embassies in Ukraine and Russia he has a master's degree from Harvard and became a Russian east European expert at the Pentagon okay so an accomplished guy let me steer as to why we're talking about him which is his role at the White House and how he came to listen to this July twenty fifth phone call between the two presidents right to last year he's asked to serve on the National Security Council very common for military state department CIA people to go there on a temporary assignment in his opening statement on Capitol Hill today he said that this spring he was troubled by what he called a false narrative about Ukraine and he cites a number of developments specifically this July twenty fifth call I said he was listening in the situation room and he he writes in his prepared testimony court I was concerned by the call I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U. S. citizen what did he do without concern well he wanted to raise it and he did have a confidante at the National Security Council we could turn to army lieutenant colonel EF Gainey than men his identical twin brother wow that's right they both work in the NSC in the west wing of the White House his brother is a lawyer who deals with ethics questions and Alexander van man race this with the NFC's top lawyer he said he'd often been encouraged to express his views and share his concern but was very proper about it said it had to go through the chain of command it to the proper authorities he stresses he's not the whistle blower but clearly he's been in the middle of the issue cranium discussions for the past year let me turn you to some of the criticism that are starting to circulate the president's supporters and seeking to undermine testimony that he may be delivering on Capitol Hill what are some of the doubts that they're trying to raise here so some Republicans are suggesting that he's more loyal to Ukraine than to the United States I'm here Sean Duffy an ex Republican congressman from Wisconsin speaking about them in on CNN today it seems very clear that he is incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense I don't know his concern about American policy but his main mission was to make sure that the Ukraine got those weapons I understand that we all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from so raising this question of loyalty no others like the house minority leader Kevin McCarthy said he just thinks women is wrong about his interpretation of events and in others like a Republican Liz Cheney who really pushed back to all this is that it's shameful to question the patriotism the love of the country of of someone like men men also would seem to be hard to do it for a guy who won as you said the Purple Heart serving for the US in Iraq he spent his entire adult life of serving the US military so what happens tomorrow he testifies does he go back to work at the White House that still where he works we haven't heard anything to the contrary but it could certainly be a little bit awkward if indeed he does and here's Greg Mari without profile of lieutenant colonel Alexander women thanks Greg my
