Monday and and we'll see that legal brief and get a better sense of their their legal arguments but you really they're they're here to make sure that nothing too dramatic happens and that a bunch of Republican senators don't feel a need to cross the president that's NPR White House correspondent Tamera Keith thank you you're welcome what happened in Russia on Wednesday a power grab a step towards democratization a kook or something more subtle those are questions we want to put too long time Russia watcher Marcia Gessen who writes about president Vladimir Putin's moves to Amanda rushes constitution and the subsequent resignation of the entire Russian cabinet in The New Yorker mushy guessing welcome hi so the most common take on all this that I have seen is this is Vladimir Putin laying the groundwork to stay in power and to stay in power past the end of his presidential term which is set to run out in twenty twenty four is that your read I think that's basically accurate but you know we immediately run into language problems like the moment was for using terms like power grab or or constitutional amendments or even you know laying the groundwork it kind of suggests an assumption that's different from reality so this option is that there is power to be grab that hasn't already been taken or that the hers consolidation to perform that hasn't already been consolidated or that one can perpetrate a coup against oneself at cetera you're saying he already controls the courts in Russia and the parliament and a lot of the media and so he doesn't need to consolidate power he's he already has it all he already has it all so he is acting he is acting to preempt any possible challenge to his power and I think he at this point over estimates the possibility of challenge to his power which actually makes him very very strong as a dictator dictators fall when they're over confident they stay in power when their parent we unfortunately in Russia have long experience with that the most paranoid dictator in our history was probably Joseph Stalin who stayed in power until his death after thirty years at the helm do you think that's Putin's goal by the way stay in power to his staff absolutely I think that is his goal I think he cannot even imagine any other possibility I mean it let me push back for second if you're saying he already controls all the power anyway why is he bothering with constitutional reforms why not just say Hey guys I'm not going anywhere you figure it out that's a great question you know it's like sometimes you watch Russian you think what they even bothering with the courts trials right when they could just order people to go to prison because effectively that's what the courts do they always do exactly what the state tells him to do but I think there's a problem of the tool box you can't just order somebody to be put in prison when your toolbox kinda sorta looks like a legal system remotely the same with the Russian presidency it is for whatever purpose at this point defined by a constitution right it has a beard very far from the constitution practice but it doesn't have any other basis in kind of shared reality besides the constitution and so he is creating this this convoluted process for infringing it further even putting must know he's not gonna live forever are there signs that he is grooming anyone to succeed him there no signs his remaining one I think that he believes himself to be an extremely healthy sixty seven year old I wouldn't be surprised if you plan to live to a hundred and again in a weirdly for the second time in this interview I want to refer to Stalin because we know that when Stalin died even though he had been ill for years there was no successor there was no idea in the Soviet power structure about what happens next somehow the world kind of magically convinced he was going to live forever and it was almost politically dangerous to suggest otherwise absolutely it was a huge risk to try to look beyond the unimaginable as Marcia guessing her latest New Yorker article is headlined the willful ambiguity of Putin's latest power grab thanks so much thank you you're listening to All

sure that nothing too dramatic happens and that a bunch of Republican senators don't feel a need to cross the president that's NPR White House correspondent Tamera Keith thank you you're welcome what happened in Russia on Wednesday a power grab a step towards democratization a coop or something more subtle lose your questions we want to put too long time Russia watcher Marcia Gessen who writes about president Vladimir Putin's moves to Amanda rushes constitution and the subsequent resignation of the entire Russian cabinet in The New Yorker mushy guessing welcome hi so the most common take on all this that I have seen is this is Vladimir Putin laying the groundwork to stay in power and to stay in power past the end of his presidential term which is set to run out in twenty twenty four is that your read I think that's basically accurate but you know we immediately run into language problems like the moment we start using terms like power grab or or constitutional amendments or even you know laying the groundwork it kind of suggests an assumption that's different from reality so this option is that there is power to be grab that hasn't already been taken or that the hers consolidation to perform that hasn't already been consolidated or that one could perpetrate a coup against oneself at cetera you're saying he already controls the courts in Russia and the parliament and a lot of the media and so he doesn't need to consolidate power he's he already has it all he already has it all so he is acting out his acting to preempt any possible challenge to his power and I think he at this point over estimates the possibility of challenge to his power which actually makes him very very strong as a dictator dictators fall when they're over confident they stay in power when their parent we unfortunately in Russia have long experience with that the most paranoid dictator in our history was probably Joseph Stalin who stayed in power until his death after thirty years at the helm do you think that's Putin's goal by the way stay in power to his staff absolutely I think that is his goal I think he cannot even imagine any other possibility the minute let me push back for second if you're saying he already controls all the power and anyway why is he bothering with constitutional reforms why not just say Hey guys I'm not going anywhere you figure it out that's a great question you know it's like sometimes you watch Russian you think what they even bothering but the courts trials right when they could just order people to go to prison because effectively that's what the courts do they always do exactly what the state tells them to do but I think there's a problem of the tool box you can't just order somebody to be put in prison when your toolbox kinda sorta looks like a legal system remotely the same with the Russian presidency it is for whatever purpose at this point defined by a constitution right it has a beard very far from the constitution practice but it doesn't have any other basis in kind of shared reality besides the constitution and so he is creating this this convoluted process for entrenching it further even putting must know he's not going to live forever are there signs that he is grooming anyone to succeed him there no signs his remain one I think that he believes himself to be an extremely healthy sixty seven year old I wouldn't be surprised if you plan to live to a hundred and again in a weirdly for the second time of this interview I want to refer to Stalin because we know that when Stalin died even though he had been in ill health for years there was no successor there was no idea in the Soviet power structure about what happens next somehow the world kind of magically convinced he was going to live forever and it was almost politically dangerous to suggest otherwise absolutely it was a huge risk to try to look beyond the unimaginable as Marcia guessing her latest New Yorker article is headlined the willful ambiguity of.

"News I'm Mary Louise Kelley and Audie Cornish for months now president trump has been watching lawyers defend him against impeachment on his favorite fox news television shows lawyers including Kenneth Starr Pam Bondi and Robert ray I think they're stretching it beyond the textual bounds beyond our historical accounts of the president deserves to be heard we should it be working hand in hand with them the rules of evidence will apply these are the senators who will decide if our president is impeached which will not happen abuse of power can't be a stalking horse for anything that you would like to shoe horn into it and say it's an impeachable offense now they're all part of his impeachment defense legal team NPR White House correspondent Tamera Keith joins us now to go through this full roster of attorneys will come back to the studio good to be with you let's start with the biggest names can star in Alan Dershowitz win here from Dershowitz more in the program but can you talk about what they bring to this team well do show a sense that he will simply be making constitutional arguments on the floor of the Senate that the articles of impeachment presented by the house don't rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors he's a professor emeritus at Harvard you probably know him better as the celebrity defense attorney who who represented OJ Simpson and Mike Tyson also though in recent years he's faced controversy for his connections and and representation of the late sexual predator Jeffrey abstain as for Kenneth Starr he was the independent counsel who was investigations into the Clinton's lead to former president bill Clinton's impeachment not by the time that that impeachment took place star was widely seen as having over reached the powers of his assignment he has spent a lot of time on television and elsewhere defending the president including this when he was speaking to conservative talk show host mark live in do you think this is an effort to overthrow the president absolutely there's no it if because because of this food the Ukrainian subchapter fitting into the larger volume of we're going to impeach him let me just add that stars had controversy of his own he was fired or pushed out as president of Baylor University over the university's mishandling of sexual assault allegations that was back in twenty sixteen thinking back to the Clinton era the man who followed Kenneth Starr was Robert ray right he essentially close the book on the Clinton investigations who else is going to be on the trump defense team in the next two weeks J. secular is one of trump's personal attorneys he was a key player in the president's defense during the Russia investigation Jane Raskin worked with him on that team and she will also be part of the president's defense now one private lawyer whose name will not come up well how come up a lot but he's not on the defense team is Rudy Giuliani who is really at the center piece of this whole controversy Pam Bondi is another name she joined the White House to help with communications during the impeachment enquiring she's a former Florida Attorney General and is now moving on to defend the president it in the Senate trial so those those are some of them it seems like a high powered bunches sensually who wrangles this group Pat so baloney he's the White House counsel he'll be leading the team is more of a behind the scenes person you'd be hard pressed to find video of him publicly defending the president he'll also be joined by a couple of his deputies finally the strategy for defense in the White House is already told us that they believe these articles of impeachment are so weak that they will fail on their face we now have a cast of people who've been arguing that on television for months we know the White House wants a swift trial though they don't get full say in that and they may even argue that they should be dismissed all together we're we're going to find out more about the strategy over the weekend the White House has to formally respond to the summons from the Senate by Monday and and we'll see that legal brief and get a better sense of their their legal arguments but you really they're they're here to make sure that nothing too dramatic happens and that a bunch of Republican senators don't feel a need to cross the president that's NPR White House

"Deal with China if I want to make it if I want to make a good stuff they want to make it it's I want to make and we'll see what happens but I'm doing very well if I want to make a deal I don't know that I want to make it but you can find out for yourself will surprise you as you browse United States in London at about four thirty this morning eastern time salus Amanda rush to do the deal he's not even acknowledging that by by signing off on the legislation the supporting the protesters in Hong Kong guys kind of ticked off and it looks like things might be on hold anyway they told one of our ships we could pull into port I think it's a great move I think is one of the president's strongest move I love the fact that Democrats are bored too and I think he would have the support of a lot of people if he held his line joining us now is Chris stirewalt Chris I was I've bold fashion I when I heard them sing the national anthem waving that flag over the weekend and knew the president signed off on Rubio's legislation and Michele Bachmann's legislation I thought that that was just great Michele Bachmann Michele Bachmann no that Michele Bachmann I was like wait a minute all hold on one second here kill made well Michelle him ever but not and now Marcia black but she's gonna kill me but but but by part overwhelmingly bipartisan legislation and with a veto proof majority strong message from the Congress the president wasn't sure what he was guess anyone sure what is going to do because obviously he knows that his you know the the the China China is the well immigration is the loudest issue the most divisive issue for Donald trump's presidency China is the most important because it's the one that hits hardest with persuade a bold democratic leading voters in the states where trump did the best where he experienced a surprising success a blow out in Ohio not even close Iowa Pennsylvania Michigan and Wisconsin or were all states where his argument about bringing back manufacturing jobs that were outsourced to China was really powerful yep right he co opted to democratic argument to good effect a railing against nafta was really important to and by the way as we talk about the deal with China Chuck Grassley and Nancy Pelosi are trying to get the mat the nafta successor the United States Mexico Canada agreement across the finish line if I were in this administration I would I would think that my thought would be China you had a million people in prison camps you have a democracy revolt taking place in one of your wealthiest provinces you've got issues and you've got issues with the west in the west is got issues with you let's see where this goes but have the focus be on getting the western hemisphere together in a trade pact getting that done in a by the way a deal that please as Democrats more than a please Republicans concessions for labor unions and other things these are all good things for those those battleground states and maybe not have a trade with with Europe right now maybe not maybe not take that off with France and try to do what you can to unite the world against China and say look you're either going to deal with that the real you know we're ready to crack down on you we're ready to deal with you now let's do that a couple of things number one I think you're right I think to in the in the Europeans case the presence to gonna protect up but he says he mentioned that don't really he goes I don't like these companies too much for their American companies may was gonna tax him is going to be us I love that line yeah the line is so good I want to answer that I have I wrote it down to just because to put it in the half time report today and he he was offended and he said if anyone is going to take advantage of the American companies it's going to be us right because of now what I don't love is the fact that Argentina Brazil their currency got to values who is punishing we terrace is not their fault they didn't artificially do it especially in Brazil where this president is pushing against all types headwinds to get China out to Mister president he's your friend he likes you you like him give me a break if you had the what I'm doing away from the cameras so I just think they do they've saved the child is going to take up that opportunity to get their stakes back in so the president does one have clarification he was asked a question easily to misinterpret about a run and the protesters here is is no I don't support them he said no I strain that out he opened up the next press conference that I got to get this straight I do support those pride protesting in China for freedom any tweeted this out the United States America supports the brave people of Iran for protesting for the freedom we have under the trump administration always will I like that that's two two places consistent there's no financial pay off but the American dream and the the American philosophy they're watching and taking it up and they're looking for it and I'm fine with that those who were taking over we're not behind it there's no C. I. A. mission but a bunch of unemployed angry Iranians are standing up and being killed in cold blood and this is what I was hoping personal bomb would have done well in in it's even more poignant for us in Hong Kong because we know their story right their story is our story you're a British colony and then you experience this period of benign neglect where the crown ignores you and you become substantially self governing and then you find out that that's going away and that restrictions are going to be put on the way of life that you've developed and that Hong Kongers who are unique and distinctive they are they are a nation every bit as much as the thirteen the residents of the thirteen colonies were a nation but their nation yeah and they feel independent indistinct and when we see those star spangled banner is fine when we hear the the the national anthem being sung it's hard not to have fellow feeling with those folks in Iran you know the what we always get what we always get back to and all of every time we talk about the Middle East out well what comes next be better and I don't know I just I honestly I I don't know enough about what these behind that's gonna be worse for forty years we've we've we that the Arab spring taught us that it can be worse right it can be it is possible for it to be worse we're talking to Chris stirewalt it's never bad we talk to Chris but Chris how about you must be loving the whole fact that we have these press conferences they are so one scripted and off the hook and honest we're never going to want to go back to the way it was but I'd love the McCrone trump respectful sparring today did you yeah I know I think I think their their relationship is one of the most interesting ones of trump's presidency the feeling each other out seeing where the limits are seeing who will take a punch and and who will not I think there is some there is some respect there there's there's some admiration between the two of them for each other and we would also remember that former crown he's looking at a you know as uncle Merkel exits the stage in Europe and we have a new but we have a new president the E. you we have a changing in you the crown is looking to have a bigger role for France and for himself and all of those interesting geo political dynamics playing one little sit down Hey I I get a good to take on this before I let you go and that's with Trey Gowdy said last night Trey Gowdy says in looking at this investigation and seeing what's going on the impeachment right now he said he always held to the belief this wasn't about getting rid of the present it was about if he gets reelected baking basically emasculate him by losing the Senate he said this whole impeachment push is about making difficult vote for Cory Gardner and senator tell us and senator Collins have you heard that do you agree with that I don't that's that I'm sure that that is a that is a factor that Democrats have thought I'm sure I'm sure that adds to their thinking I didn't hear exactly what he said so he may have contextualized I could've made it up to be honest so you just possible and I'm open to that too right but at the here's the here's the thing when you read today the Democrats are talking about adding yes small or odd sprinkles into the impeachment so let's say a month ago I would have told you that did it was ninety percent likely the Donald Trump would be impeached and ninety nine percent likely that other after impeachment he would be acquitted I would say that the odds for impeachment have gone down now it's I'd still say he's seventy percent likely to get impeached but when you hear the uncertainty the Democrats have about the case that they've made as we get ready to go to has judiciary where the Republicans are gonna act just deplorable way and make it as bad as possible and Adler is not good he does not have a good track record of being able to keep his composure and keep the come and keep his members in line you've got hot heads on both sides this is it's it's easy for me to imagine though I don't again I don't think this is the most likely outcome it's easy for me to imagine that after the judiciary hearings that we get to the end and there's a pretty substantial carcass of Democrats who say move to censure get away from this thing and and then you actually get if they were if the Democrats did that then they'd actually get the the painful votes for Republicans that they want making Tom tell us choose on center is a lot harder than making Tom tell us choose on impeachment yeah hi gene prison does that I want to try to do anything wrong and I guess Doug Collins that he goes no I would I never would recommend that goes into anything wrong so I'm fast well wait a minute let's just take a step back though right I am the thing that I'm going to be taken away right now taking away right after the peace be getting away for the play by play in the letter in the in the phone calls is right there are no Republican defections that I know of and there are no Democrat defections that I know of but there could be potentially there was to go into other other yeah and I could be more yeah I mean that that is not with Democrats now well before we were expecting because of the unorthodox way the president acts and some of the things he does a test their loyalty this is really surprised me has it you know the partisan nature of this the the response from Devin Nunez you could I don't know that you can get a majority of Republicans in the house to to vote to second his findings the the the rank partisanship here the goofy levels of it it's like the opioids of partisanship are coursing through the blood stream the death I I am not surprised that there are no Republicans switching over and I'm not surprised that there are very few Democrats defecting because people are deeply into their partisan corners this poll after poll after poll shows us it doesn't matter what evidence is presented all the presentation of evidence seems to do is deep and.
