Bolton Was Concerned That Trump Did Favors for Autocratic Leaders, Book Says

"To questions you surprise that a investor Bolton was writing a book about his time in the trump administration and beat it was ready to go while the president was still in office I wasn't surprised that a basketball was writing a book on his experiences working for president trump we had a very interesting take here thank you very productive as national security adviser I was surprised that he was planning on a show in the book before the twenty twenty presidential election and as you know I wrote about that that was published in function pinning yesterday that said there's a there's a principle that former secretary of defense Bob gates established he resigned in twenty eleven but he didn't put his book out so early twenty fourteen because he didn't want his knowledge of the above the stretch to affect the outcome twenty twenty twenty twelve presidential election I think that the president of basketball just follow are you what about the leak here I mean do you I know you've reference and you think of John Bolton as a man of integrity but do you believe that he would leak this center underhanded way or facilitate a week of this nature out now he would he would never do that and I I think that he this team may have made an error in sending a a Agnes growth this sensitive to leak hello National Security Council in the middle of the teacher process he came out yesterday that the NSC made multiple paper copies that were circulating around the building I'm afraid there was simply probably too much of a temptation by someone in the NSC two two weeks this to the media I I I don't think we should have a search right at all this election but if it had to be circulated should that circulated the clearance during the impeachment process yeah I saw with Alexander Veneman's brother is supposedly responsible for some of these affix reviews which is seems like a conflict of interest to begin with but why is the National Security Council such a disaster why is it known as being weak problem well I I work with you getting than than what I was at the end I see I I thought he was a very fine attorney and I don't like people trying it for around the allegation he may have leaked this there's no evidence of that aha the NSC is part of a process prior for pre publication review publications like this when you go to the S. you make an agreement that that we got it was sent to the embassy for security clearance but it seems to me that rules are sure to follow to make sure this is handled very carefully were not followed and that's probably where we came from has the New York times seen the manuscript have they read the manuscript or is what date published based on a source that's a good point The New York Times ran a story based on anonymous sources without seeing the manuscript so could be that all the allegations of what Paul supposedly said the book of the New York times are not exactly accurate yeah yeah I mean this is more than secondhand information and so I think there there is a real problem here this has happened before when it is our cases like this is something a conservative said in the end up being not true are greatly exaggerated you give would not be the first time that the New York Times has published something based on an anonymous source and then had to go back and retract it because they were wrong and I think this is very dangerous this is a very dangerous precedent that we're going we're going to bring information into an impeachment trial based on court in court and anonymous source that leaked to The New York Times it's a seems to be I don't know little a little crazy and I I don't like that the Republicans are even giving any credence to this making giving any credibility to this anonymous source I think it's very dangerous to great I I I think that's right it seems like there's a different standard of proof for stories that her conservatives and stories that hurt levels the grade if this was a story against a democratic president I doubt that their ties with the land that they would have demanded to see the manuscript and confirm these allegations can I ask I sing some reporting this morning in The Washington Post that Bolton is believed according to some anonymous official too often go home at night and write extensively about his experience during the day with the president and the president had expressed concern about his copious note taking including during meetings as well what was your experiencing experience with that well how did our resources noticeably falling home followed him home and watching them right I we're what we're is that come from like he's a smart guy with an incredible memory I I I I I saw that allegation of those Sir givers and then on this issue of there's a New York times report also out loud overnight last night indicating that John Bolton had privately told bill bar that he had concerns that trump was granting personal favors to the autocratic leaders of Turkey and China these are the newest allegations added this manuscript that John Bolton thought that he was doing something on toward a concern about that is that your experience as well my experience is well I I find that the highly unlikely thing to have happened at eight eight eight it looks like there may have been some policy difference between the president and the basketball but I think they had a falling out that's why you left the White House yes that particular allegation I I I find unlikely that that's true additionally at this idea that their policy differences deed is that do you think that's animating the activities of John Bolton at this moment I'm sorry it's their policy differences you you pointed out that they have well established policy differences including over things like Afghanistan and negotiating with the Taliban things like this do you think that's animating John Paul's behavior now I think there were a number of differences that outlook there's going to be times when the presidential adviser has a falling out with the president where they're just not getting along the had major differences of opinion and when that happens is appropriate and and typical for the the advise you to move on yeah you know a basketball has written a book I think use right now principal I'm just calling for him to respect it I think a fairly well established principle that a senior adviser to president should hold off put memoirs like this while president is in office were least hold off until after the next presidential election absolutely Fred flights thank you so much for joining us really appreciate your time and your insight

Impeachment Hearing Takeaways: Trump request to Ukraine seen as a "demand"

"Started with a whistle blowers complain about President. Trump's contact with a foreign leader had a perfect phone call with the president of Ukraine. Like I mean perfect today. I'm announcing the House of Representatives. Moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. Good morning everyone. This is the third in a series of public hearings. It'd be holding his part of the house impeachment inquiry. It's Mike Schmidt in the Washington Bureau of the New York Times. Today was another big day of testimony. Testimony AAC coming from four different witnesses split into a morning and afternoon session. Three of these witnesses were actually on the infamous July twenty fifth call between trump and Ukrainian President Alinsky and not surprisingly much to the testimony. Today was about that call. What did these officials think about the call when they heard it? How is it dealt with with? What were the implications of it? Why was it troubling but the latest is that for me? What we really saw today was the Republican Strategy Strategy on display in a way that we hadn't before the best example of this came with how the Republicans treated one of the witnesses? This is in the morning session. The uniform I wear today is that of the United States. Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Veneman Vin. Men is the director for European. Repeat Affairs at the National Security Council. He's a career military officer and in his opening statement he describes how his father chose to come to the United States state from the Soviet Union. When my father was forty seven years old he left behind his entire life so his three sons could have a better and safer for lives and the profound sense of duty that instilled in him as a young man? I decided I wanted to spend my life. Serving this nation that gave my family refuge from McCain oppression and he finishes his opening statement by looking straight at the camera and addressing his father Directly Dad. Yeah I'm sitting here today in the. US Capitol talking to our elected professionals is proof that you made the right decision forty years ago to leave the Soviet a union come here to the United States of America. Do not worry I will be fine for telling the truth again for your consideration will be happy to answer your questions. So obviously this is a powerful introduction and immediately set him up as a strong character witness for the Democrats a uniform perform Patriot essentially just trying to do the right thing for his country up. confinment what was your real time reaction to hearing that infamous July twenty fifth call so when Adam Schiff. The committee chairman takes the MIC. He draws on his background in. Ask him what his reaction was. In July twenty fifth call which Vin men had been listening in on it was inappropriate. It was improper for the president to requested to demand an investigation into a political opponent. which vim in characterizes as demand by the president to investigate one of his political rivals? Carl you You've described this as demand. This favor of the president asked Chairman The culture come from the military culture when a senior asks you to do something even if it's play in pleasant it's not to be taken as a request. It's it's to be taken as an order in this case and then it was the Republicans turn to question vitamin and this. He's where we saw this new sharp line of attack from them. I think the ranking member colonel. I want to thank you for your service. Jason sacrificed to our great country. This afternoon your your former boss. Mr Morrison is going to be sitting right where you're sitting. And he's represented Jim Jordan. WHO's sort of been the tip of the spear for the Republicans at these hearings brings up earlier closed door testimony? That been men's boss. Tim Morrison had given Mr Morrison said this. I had concerns about lieutenant. Colonel Kinsman Judgment Jordan says that Morrison as well as Fiona Hill another other National Security Council official had concerns about been men's judgement. So your boss had concerns about your judgment. Your former boss. Dr Hill had concerns about your judgment. Your colleagues had concerns about your judgment. Any idea why they have those impressions. Colonel Yes represented Jordan. I guess I'll start start by the Reading Dr Hill's own words as she she attested to in my last evaluation that was dated inman kind minded deathly responds by taking out his own performance review and reading from what Fiona Hill said about him. Alex is a top one percent military officer and the best army officer. I've worked with in my fifteen years of government service. He's brilliant unflappable. An exercise excellent judgement. So Mr Jordan I would say that I can't say why Mr Morrison question my judgment. Maybe it was a different cultures. There's military so we're seeing here that the Republicans are turning their focus from what the hearing was intended to be about the phone call between trump's events Alinsky to basically fight over who vitamin is his credibility and this has been a talking point of the conservative media. You for weeks here we have A. US National Security official who is advising Ukraine while working inside the White House apparently against the president's interest Republicans in the house or using the exact same rhetoric but now straight to Vince face in the middle of his testimony. The White House began to run with it to the White House. were been men still works. The tweeted out during his questioning. The quote from Morrison. I had concerns about lieutenant. Colonel Vince judgment. And so there's no real surprise here. The hearings are playing out along party lines but the question is how will independent American see this. Who Will they believe? Will they believe this man sitting in his military tur- uniform with the Purple Heart on it talking about a patriotic sense of duty that his father who immigrated to the United States instilled Stilton him or will the American public believe conservatives in the House and the White House and the far-right media. That's sort sorted the question of these

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
