Trump survives impeachment: US president cleared of both charges
"That all of this is done what happens now for the trump presidency. I mean for the rest of his term. How're you expecting it to be different than and it might have been well in a way? This is like a turbo charge for president trump because he survived this gauntlet this impeachment proceeding without without having to be removed from office. And therefore he's waking up feeling emboldened and empowered and feels a conviction that everything he does is right. He is at the strongest point politically today that he's been in some time. The Gallup poll has his approval rating at forty percent which is sending shivers through the Spines of Democrats Crafts Around the country there are good feelings in the country about the economy which continues to home along to report to you tonight that our economy is the best I it has ever been. He had a pretty powerful economic message in a state of the Union. Even though a lot of it was exaggerated and he made claims that are not true. Jobs are booming. Income Poverty is plummeting. Crime is falling confidences surging. It was a selling argument. It for reelection and our country is thriving and highly respected again and so we can expect I think the president into continue to to sound teams into seek retaliation against all of those. He felt have wronged him in. It's impeachment process with this acquittal. How is that likely to change the office of the Presidency broadly? It's a good question because the evidence about trump's activity in Ukraine is. There's no dispute dispute about what he did. The evidence is clear the testimony was clear. Trump himself has admitted on camera that he wanted the Ukrainian government to do an investigation into his political political opponent and in fact he called on the Chinese government to do the same so what he did is clear what happened is the Republicans in the Senate made a political calculation about out not removing him from office for it that what he did doesn't amount to an impeachable offense and I spent some time in the last days interviewing historians and they said this is a major watershed moment in our nation's history because the way the founders set up our government setup. Our Constitution was to punish and remove presidents. Who who do exactly what? Donald Trump has been proven to have done with Ukraine. This is a system of checks and balances and what's happened is the legislative branch under Republican. Look in control in the Senate is no longer holding the president accountable they're becoming an instrument to propel his power and perpetuate his power and that's concerning to historians it's concerning to legal experts and it certainly would set a precedent. I would imagine for future presidents who will say look if trump got away with this I can get away with it too and it is just an expansion of that sort of executive power which is troubling to those who study the framers and the Constitution. Do you think I mean with a different president. You know ten years twenty years from now our future executive branches likely to think back to this moment and say I can do this. It's okay I'm not going to get in trouble. You know. They they could and we may not even have to look to future presidents for that. President trump has another ten months seven months in office. He may have another four years beyond that and there's no telling what he might try to do going forward because he's escaped accountability this time in the Russia investigation. You know the Muller Team documented did all of these examples for really proven examples where the president sought to obstruct justice but did not charge him or indict him because he's a sitting president narrow justice assists department guidelines about that. Well the very next day after Robert Mueller testified in Congress about this trump picked up the phone and called the Ukrainian president asking for the favor the political favors so he the conclusion he drew from the Muller Investigation and his lack of any legal punishment in that regard was that he can get away with with what he wants to do. He's the president if he does it so be it and the Republicans in on Capitol Hill or are there to support and protect him. So can you talk us through. How the president's President's own lawyers argued that the Senate basically doesn't have the power to to check the president one of the most striking moments in the president's defense came when one of his lawyers? Alan Dershowitz a noted criminal lawyer you've seen him on. TV for years Came to the floor of the Senate and advanced an argument that a lot of legal experts that said was dubious every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest. And mostly right your elections in the public interest. He said if the president does something that will help his reelection therefore is in the best interest of the country and if if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest. He cannot be held or rather be impeached for for that action that cannot be the kind of quid pro. Quo that results in impeachment. And so that's a blanket. Excuse use for the president to do what he did with Ukraine but obviously anything else that the president deems to be in the interest of his reelection that is an argument that Dershowitz had to kind of walk back a little bit In in some comments he made the next day and he got a lot of heat from legal scholars who said that's just a completely baloney argument argument with no constitutional grounding but it is indicative. I think of how President Trump himself views his power and views his authority as the president and commander-in-chief founder and chief. Did we see a lot of senators latching onto that argument. A few did Actually the Republican senators of course but a few parroted the Dershowitz line came as a way of defending the president and saying basically he's president he can do whatever he wants for his reelection because getting him reelected is in the best interest of our country. What about the way that? The impeachment trial played out in the Senate. The fact that there were no new documents that there were no witnesses is that likely also to set. Its own kind of precedent for or the way that impeachment is handled in the future. Certainly we've only had an impeachment trial three times in our history and so there's not really a blueprint door protocol. Offer how to go about doing this. And and the Senate leaders along with the chief justice of the Supreme Court to kind of change and adapt the rules as they went along to figure out how this would work mark and the Democrats say this was a complete sham. Trial that Mitch. McConnell designed it from the get-go to move quickly to get to a very fast acquittal to turn the page to save trump into move on with the legislative business not to delve into the details. Not To really scrutinize the evidence. The most surprising thing I think watching the Sahlin fold the last few weeks that John Bolton came forward publicly or at least in the manuscript of his book which leaked out through the media with new information right. He's a first first hand witness to what the president wanted done and Ukraine. He offered to testify before the Senate or at least indicated he would if if asked. Here's somebody who could have come forward to provide a new to account that would have provided new evidence to this case and there was no interest among the Republican majority in the Senate to hear what he had to say. I don't believe the testimony is necessary. The house else managers have a burden of proof a burden of proof to prove their case they had fallen woefully short. We now have allegations from Mr Bolton. I think they would have more credibility if the allegations came from someone else. There is no new information in my opinion based on what John Bolton has known but today in an effort to generate interest in a book have selectively released. Information that that to me doesn't go beyond what we've seen in the seventeen witnesses who've already testify only two. Republican senators voted to allow witnesses. Mitt Romney and and Susan Collins of Maine came to what extent is the Senate giving up the power that they have to oversee the president of provide any kind of check on the president. Give us a sense of the power that's been given up with the smooth you know they've they've been giving up power to this president for three years now in in part because Republicans threat the party live in fear of him. He has such an intensity of support within the Republican base and approval rating among Republicans of eighty to ninety percent and he follows these things very closely and vows to retaliate and shows that he can punish people if they betray him across him. Just ask former Senator Jeff Flake or former senator Bob corker. So there's that fear factor in the Senate and and what they've done to adapt to that is is not to stand up to him not to ever say he's wrong and in turn. They're getting some of their agenda through right. They're getting tax cuts passed. They're getting a lot of conservative. Justices installed hold onto the federal judiciary. They feel like Mitch. McConnell certainly feels like this is an opportunity to advance the conservative agenda but they just need to placate eight trump and played a trump and keep him calm but in so doing they're giving up their power of accountability. And it's certainly not the way that the framers and the founders imagined Dr our system of government working in Democracy Phil Rocker is the White House. Bureau chief for the Post. His new book written with Carol Lennox is called a very stateful genius. Donald J trump's testing of America. It's out in stores now.
U.S. senators conclude the Saudi crown prince ordered journalist’s killing
"To do with the death of journalist Jamal kashogi. In fact, Senator Lindsey Graham yesterday said there wasn't a smoking gun. There's a smoking saw. But that almost directly contradicts what the president had been saying. Yeah, that's right. A pretty. A remarkable moment on Capitol Hill yesterday. CIA briefing for select group of senators with director Gina apple after weeks really of them demanding answers from the administration. A what we know about involvement of Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin soman in this murder plot. They finally got some answers that small group of senators, and when they walked out of the briefing, they seem to be more furious than they were going into it. And then talking about just Democrats as you said Republicans allies of the president like Lindsey Graham saying that you'd have to be willfully blind to not come to the conclusion that NBS with intricately involved in this plot as you said that directly contradicts not the president. But his top advisors, Mike Pompeo secretary of state teams Mattis the Defense Secretary, and it really set a showdown between congress and the administration over what to do next with a relationship in Saudi Arabia. Well, before we even get into that going back to Mike Pompeo when he came out last week and made a statement or lack thereof. There was not. Steve that was made when it wasn't the CIA director Gina hospital a lot of people scratch their heads like, hey, wait a minute. Which isn't she? The beep be the one who's giving us all the information shouldn't her department be the one who's giving us this in. And it was just strange that. She wasn't the lead on that that it was Pompeii. Oh, and then he was so sort of cagey about everything. Yeah. Exactly. And then there were some reports at the White House should actually held Gina hassle back from going to deny that. Official beer telling me that hassle chose not to go, and it could be a little bit of both ending hassle. Probably didn't wanna be played off of the president. You know, she obviously would stick to what the intelligence agency has has compiled is and that could be seen two country country for President Trump has said publicly, and instead the had this class by briefing with Mike Pompeo and James Mattis for all one hundred senators, but but they last so unsatisfied that it builds up pressure on the administration over the last couple of days to do something to you know, really win back those Republicans like Bob corker in Lindsey Graham, and that's what led to the briefing yesterday. But as you said, they all laughed even more angry than before. So this saga will continue Connor to what are you do? So they're mad. All right, fine. Everybody's upset. Everybody's upset that it seems that the president isn't making full acknowledgement that the Saudi Crown prince had something to do with this. Everybody's upset on both sides fine. But from a geopolitical standpoint, you also have to wonder is it does it matter though. Even if the president did is it it doesn't make him look better to say, hey, crown prince, I know you had something to do with it. You know, the evidence is right here in black and white. I know you did. But I'm going to have to plug my nose on this one and just move on. Because I know it's the right thing to do when it could be comes to relations would that be enough to satisfy these senators on both sides who are so angry about this investigation. I think that had been the administration's reaction from the start that we wouldn't be in this position. And it could have been enough because I think a lot of those Republicans know that their relationship with Saudi Arabia is so important, and it is especially vital to the president's national security strategy his foreign policy they rely on the Saudis to counter Iran's throughout the Middle East. So if that was if that was the reaction right away fine. I think you know, that people could put their noses and go along especially because the Saudis have said consistently NBS, the crown prince is not going anywhere. And so they I think would learn to deal with it in a way if they hadn't felt so betrayed and so stone wall by the administration and by the Saudis, but but from the beginning the Saudis have have lied covered up their involvement. And then they admitted that there, you know, Saudi officials were responsible, but they said it was an accident. And then they admitted it wasn't an accident. It was a rogue operation. The the fact that they have continued to live threat. It has made it very hard now for these Senate Republicans to not want to go after them. But you're right broader broader terms in the region, if the US pol- support from the Saudis, they're left hung to dry and a lot of different places. We do need Saudi Arabia for a couple of different things and other partners. Other countries will be really willing to take on that partnership. Instead you saw Ladimir Putin over the weekend at the g twenty high fiving was NBS while President Trump declined to meet with. Yeah. That you don't want somebody else to just slide in there. So it's yeah. It's keep your your enemies close kind of thing, you know, or your friends. I'm screaming that went out. But you know, what? I mean. But yeah, you can't you can't goof up this relationship. No matter how ugly it is. But at the same time, they're just has to be a way to sort of eased everybody because everybody is upset that they feel like we're either covering up or you know, that the president is either covering something up or lying about it. Or whatever it may be if you were just to be more forthcoming about the details of the investigation and say, I don't like it. But here's the way it is. And then move forward that might help. We'll speaking of moving forward when you were mentioning Mike Pompeo. He's also in headlines for another reason, he says the US is

Powell Defends Fed's Handling Of Big Bank Stress Tests
"Bank's plans to continue gradually raising shortterm interest rates to sustain the nation's economic growth he testified before congress on tuesday amid the backdrop of heightened trade tensions joining us now from washington to break down his testimony is wall street journal reporter nick tim morose so nick prior to powell's testimony you wrote for the wall street journal that there wouldn't be much surprised this week after all we did last year from powell in june after the last fed policy meeting so what did you make of his first day of testimony before congress will the these hearings aren't as lively as they've been in the past in part because the economy is in a pretty good place right now so one senator today bob corker from tennessee even referred to the hearing this a little bit boring but there were several important cues that we got from the lawmakers the first was that blah makers on both sides of the aisle were asking questions in which they were showing concern over the direction the trump administration is going on trade and they were trying to get jay powell who was nominated to the job he has now by donald trump last november to also indicate some level of concern we treat the fed chair almost as the nation's economist and chief these hearings and so they were they were trying to get him to say gee this is you know not a direction we wanna go because a number of lawmakers from farm states or from states that do depend quite a bit on global trade so that was the first thing that sort of stuck out at this hearing and jerome powell in the past has has sort of declined to comment on trade because he says it's not in the feds purview did he open up at all during questioning on tuesday he did open up a little bit he didn't say how trade policy i would change the fed's interest rate plans because it's so uncertain in fact he said in my adult life we've never seen so many discussions going on at once it's not just the us with china but with the european union and canada and mexico so he said it's too hard to tell how this is all going to go he said if it results in lower tariffs across the board then that'd be good for the economy if it results in permanently higher tariffs and other trade barriers than that would be bad let's move onto unemployment which is at four percent and wage growth which is still been a little bit sluggish powell was questioned about that by nevada senator catherine cortez mastro let's your some of that exchange that having a job and having a wage livable wage or two different things you know over the long term we don't have those tools you have those tools congress's congress has the tools to assure stronger wage growth over time we we really don't have that with oh we can move interest rates around to support activity support hiring nick what did you make of that moment and powell's defense is there i think it might have been for people who follow closely what the fed is doing it was a little bit of a frustrating exchange because what powell was saying there was essentially if you're concerned over the weakness in wages monetary policy has been doing about as much as it can and congress is the one that can come in and you know if you want to spend money on training programs or spend money on dealing with the opioid crisis there are things that you think are happening that are holding back wages will then that's something congress should be responsible for there's been a tendency i think over the last ten years to put a law on the fed and say gee it would be great if the fed could fix all these problems are there because we're to gridlock in congress or because these are just hard issues to figure out and so this was powell saying wait a minute just let's look at what our responsibilities are we don't have the tools that you're asking us to to do things with
