"There Mr Senator from Texas. I sent a question of the Daska behalf of myself and Senator Moran and Holly It has a question for the house manager. So thank you the question from the senators to the house managers and August Twenty six twenty nine letter from the Intelligence Community Inspector General to the Director of National Intelligence discussing the so called whistle blower stated that the inspector general identified some Indicia. A of an arguable political bias. On the part of the complainant in favor of a rival political candidate multiple media outlets reported that this likely referred to the whistleblowers work with Joe Biden did the so-called whistleblower work at any point four or with Joe Biden. If so did he work for or with Joe Biden on issues involving Ukraine. And did he assist in any material way with the quid pro quo in watch in which then Vice President Biden has admitted to conditioning loan guarantees to Ukraine on the firing of the prosecutor investigating Baristas. Awesome thank the sentence for the question and I want to be very careful in how I answered. So as not to disclose disclose or give it indication of that may allow others to identify the identity of the whistle blower But I I want to talk about why we're making such an effort to protect the identity of whistleblower It's not just that we view the protection of whistleblowers as important members of this body have have also made strong statements about just how important it is to protect whistleblowers. Senator Grassley said this person appears to have followed the whistle blower protection laws. AUSE in ought to be heard out and protected we should always work with to respect. Whistleblowers requests for confidentiality Senator Romney whistle blower should be entitled to Confidentiality Challenge and privacy because they play a vital function. In Our democracy Senator Burr we protect whistleblowers. We protect witnesses in our committee. Even my colleague colleague the ranking member Mr Nunez we want people to come forward and we will attack the identity of those at all cost. This has been a bipartisan priority. I already and one that we have done our best to maintain so I want to be very careful. But let me be clear about several things about the whistle blower first of all. I don't know who the whistleblower is. I haven't met them or communicate with them in any way the community. The committee staff did not write the complaint or coach the whistle blower what to put in the complaint. The committee staff did not see the complaint before it was submitted to the Inspector General the committee including staff. I did not receive the complaint until the night before acting director of National Intelligence We had an open hearing with active director on September. Twenty six more than three weeks after the legal deadline by which the committee should have received the complaint in short the conspiracy theory which I think was outlined earlier that the whistleblower colluded with the Intel Committee staff to hatch an impeachment inquiry is a complete and total fiction. This was I think confirmed firmed by the remarkable accuracy of the whistle blower complaint which has been corroborated by the evidence we subsequently gathered in all material respects. So I'm not going to go into into anything that could reveal or lead to the revelation of the identity whistleblower. But I can tell you because my staff's names have been brought into this proceeding that my staff off acted at all times with the most complete professionalism. I'm very protective of my staff. As I know you are and I'm grateful fold that we have such bright hardworking people working around the clock to protect this country and have served our committee so well and and it really grieves me to see them smeared and some of them mentioned here today have concerns about their safety and their online threats to members of my staff as the result of some of the smears that have been launched against them. Your Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman and vice-chairmen can tell you encourage whistle blowers to come to their committee and so do we. And when they do we try to figure out is their complaint within the scope of jurisdiction of the intelligence this community and if it is then we suggest they get a lawyer. We suggest they talk to the Inspector General. which is what happened here the whistleblower did exactly what they you should except for the president? That's unforgivable because the whistle expose the wrongdoing of the president in the president's view that makes him or her a traitor or a spy and is the president tells us there's a way we used to treat traitors and spies. You wonder why we don't want to call the whistle blower well first of all we know firsthand what the whistle blower wrote secondhand in that complaint. There's no need need for that whistleblower anymore except to further endanger that person's life. The question from Senator Whitehouse and the other senators to the house managers. The missing witness rule which dates back to eighteen ninety. Three Supreme Court case graves versus United States allows one party. He to obtain an adverse inference against the other for failure to produce a witness under that party's control with material information. Here one party. The the president has prevented witnesses within his control from testifying or providing documents. Do the house managers believe senators should apply the missing witness misrule here. And if so what adverse inferences should we draw about the missing testimony and documents. Mr Chichester Senators. There's we do believe that you should draw an adverse inference against the party resisting. The testimony of these witnesses like John Bolton courts have long recognized that when a party has relevant evidence within his control which she fails to produce that failure gives rise to an inference that that evidence is unfavorable unfavorable to him. Courts have frequently drawn adverse inferences. Where party acts in bad faith to conceal evidence or preclude witnesses from offering testimony money and I would suggest that is bad? Faith when some When Council comes before you and says that if you really wanted these witnesses you should have sued to get them in the House and goes into the courtroom down the street and says you can't sue to get witnesses before the house but that's what's happened here and you are? I think not only permitted but absolutely should draw an adverse inference that when a party is making that argument on both sides of the courthouse that the evidence those witnesses would provide vied runs against them now. The ministration hasn't produced a single document not one single document documents extraordinary. They can argue executive privilege an absolute immunity most of that has nothing to do with the overwhelming majority of these documents. It's not a whit. There's no absolute immunity from providing documents. The vast vast majority don't have anything to do with privilege. And if they did they would be redaction very specific reductions. None of that happened. Are you allowed to draw an adverse inference. That the reason why the president's team which has possession of those emails regarding increased by Ukraine into why the aid was frozen. Are you allowed to draw an inference if they won't won't show you. Those e mails that those emails would confirm that Ukraine new age was withheld just like the former deputy foreign minister of Ukraine said publicly. Only when she told The New York Times yes we knew by the end of July. We knew this is the deputy foreign minister at the time. We knew the aid was frozen but I was instructed by Andrei. You're not to mention it. I had a trip planned to Washington talked congress. I was told not to go why because they didn't want it public. Are you entitled. Draw inference that those records. They refused to turn over all the State Department records. The fact that they won't allow John Bolton's notes to be turned over. They won't let investor Taylor's lers notes to be turned over. Should you draw an adverse inference. You're darn right and finally with respect to the the what who has become a central witness here. I think the adverse inference screams at you as to y. They don't want John Bolton but you shouldn't rely on an inference here not when you have a witness who's willing to come forward there was no need for inference inference. Here there's just the need for a subpoena senator. Thune question is for counsel for the president. Would you please respond to the arguments or assertions. The house managers just made in response to the previous questions. Mr Chief Justice. Thank you senator for the question. I haven't read recently the case that was cited about the missing witness rules so I can't say specifically what's in it but I'm willing to bet that the missing witness rule does not apply. There's been a valid assertion of a privilege or other immunity. Keeping the witness out of court. Senator from New Hampshire. Thank MR chief justice. I send a question to the desk. Ask for the house managers. Thank you the question is for the House. Managers did acting chief of Staff Mick. Mulvaney wave executive privilege in his October. Seventeen press conference in which he stated that there was quote political influence and quote in the trump administration's this decision to withhold aid to Ukraine chief. Justice thing was members of the Senate. I thank you for that question. Mick Mulvaney has absolutely waved executive privilege. He never asserted executive privilege coach. In fact. That's the president's council has acknowledged they have not asserted executive privilege once the President's council has said when we made that point during our opening arguments that that was technically true. No it's true so it's not an alternate fact. It's a fat. You've never asserted executive privilege in connection with Mick Mulvaney testimony or any one else. It was not asserted as relates to any of the seventeen witnesses who testified twelve of home testified publicly the other phony arguments that have been articulated. Respectfully that the house needed to vote in order for the subpoenas to be valid. There is nothing in the constitution that required the full House vote. Nothing and Supreme Court precedent nothing under federal law. Nothing on the house rules. It was a phony argument. The question from Senator Manchin attention reads as follows. The framers took the words high crimes and misdemeanors straight out of English law where it had been applied to impeachments for four orange. Four hundred years before our Constitution was written. The framers were well aware when they chose those words. That parliament had impeached officials. For High Crimes and misdemeanors that were not indictable crimes. The House has repeatedly impeached and the Senate has convicted officers for high crimes and misdemeanors that were not indictable crimes. Even Mr Dershowitz said in nineteen ninety eight. That an impeachable offense quote certainly doesn't have to be a crime and quote what has happened in the past twenty two years to change the original intent of the framers and the historic meaning of the term. High crimes and misdemeanors I. It's counsel for the president's turn what happened since nineteen ninety eight is that I studied more. Did more research read more documents and like any academic altered my views. That's what happens. That's what professors ought to do. And I keep reading war and I keep writing more and I keep refining my views. One thousand nine hundred eight the issue before this Senate was not whether a crime was required. It was whether the crime that Clinton was charged with a high crime. When this impeachment began the issue was whether crimes required actually two years earlier in a book and then an OP? Ed I concluded not on partisan grounds on completely academic grounds that you could not impeach for abuse Of Power and that technical crime was not required but criminal behavior was required. The first draft of the Constitution Convention said treason bribery that was rejected because it wasn't inclusive enough. Somebody Mason propose maladministration found today. So they said high crimes and misdemeanors that was a well. Understood term in English law is well understood term in the in the Warren Hastings impeachment going on in England right then and it meant primarily early abuse of power. That is the main street. That is the main meaning of high crimes and Misdemeanors Charles. Pinkney said those who behave. Even missile betray the public. Trust Edman round off misbehaves but the I quoted justice story the other day every impeachment in American history has been been for abuse of power in one form or another. The idea that you have to have a crime. Bribery is right. There in the constitution treason bribery or the crisis. Bribery was not made a statutory crime until eighteen thirty seven so couldn't have been impeachment. The fact of the matter is that crimes and impeachment are two different things. impeachments punishments for crimes impeachments are protections of the Republic against the president who had abuses power who would aggregate nice power. Who would who would threaten liberty who threaten the separation of powers with threaten the powers of the Congress? We try to arrogate power to himself. That is why punishment upon conviction for impeachment only goes to remove from office. Can't put them in jail as you could for a crime. You can't find him as you could for a crime. There are two different things. He's an impeachable. Offense need not be a crime and a crime did not be an impeachable offense to completely different tests understood that way throughout American history and ah by all scholars oil scholars in our history. Except.

Peters and you'd all I sent a question to the desk question coming out from Democrats just a moment ago we heard a question from Republican senator Ted Cruz of Texas asking whether the White House that ever raising questions about whistleblowers essentially and Adam Schiff use that to pivot to talk about was the blower protections and quote I several Republican members of Congress talking about the importance of our protection here such as receives witness rule which dates back to eighteen ninety three Supreme Court case graves verses United States allows one party to obtain an adverse

investigations well Vester Taylor wrote down the notes of that conversation that took place right after that call with the president are you allowed to draw an adverse inference from the fact that they don't want you to see **** Taylor's notes from the fact they don't want you to see investor Taylor's cable you're darn right you should draw an adverse inference and finally with respect to the the a what a who has become a central witness here I think the adverse inference screams at you as to why they don't want John Bolton but you shouldn't rely on an inference here not when you have a witness who's willing to come forward there was no need for inference here there's just a need for a subpoena thank you Mister manager St congressman Adam Schiff yes with house impeachment manager questions on the desk and the questioning will continue as it has for several hours today we've been here watching and listening to a live special this is live special coverage watching and listening

"The little pause here as a a slight is being pulled up it takes a minute sometimes for us on different papers to be shuffle and because of the line we displayed some of you to reach a limit trying to actually you could hand me a copy of that as well you have a chance to destroy the traveling it's not just that we view the protection of whistleblowers as important members of this body have also made strong statements about just how important it is to protect whistleblowers senator Grassley said this person appears to have followed the whistleblower protection laws and ought to be heard out in protected we should always work with two respect whistleblowers request for confidentiality senator Romney whistleblower should be entitled to confidentiality and privacy because they play a vital function in our democracy senator Byrd we protect whistleblowers we protect witnesses in our committee I even my colleague the ranking member Mister Nunez we want people to come forward and we will protect the identity of those at all cost this is been a bipartisan priority and one that we have done our best to maintain so I want to be very careful but let me be clear about several things about the whistleblower first well I don't know who the whistleblower is I haven't met them or communicate with them in any way the community the committee staff did not write the complaint or coach the whistleblower what to put in the complaint the committee staff did not see the complaint before was submitted to the inspector general the committee including its staff did not receive the complaint until the night before acting director of national intelligence of we had an open hearing with active director on September twenty six more than three weeks after the legal deadline by which the committee should have received a complaint in short the conspiracy theory which I think was outlined earlier that the whistleblower colluded with the Intel committee staff to hatch an impeachment inquiry is a complete and total fiction this was I think confirmed by the remarkable accuracy of the whistle blower complaint which has been corroborated by the evidence was subsequently gathered in all material respects so I'm not gonna go into anything that could reveal or lead to the revelation of the addendum the whistleblower but I can tell you because my staff names have been brought into this proceeding that my staff acted at all times with the most complete professionalism I am very protective of my staff as I know you are and I'm grateful that we have a such a bright hardworking people working around the clock to protect this country well and have serve our committee so well and it really grieves me to see them smear and some of them mention here today have concerns about their safety and their online threats to members of my staff as a result of some of the smears that have been launched against them I can tell you there's no one who can understand the plight of investor you have on average more than some of my staff who have been treated to the same kind of smears and now have concerns over their own safety they acted at all times with the utmost propriety and integrity your Senate intelligence committee and your chairman and vice chairman can tell you encourage whistle blowers to come to their committee and so do we and when they do we try to figure out is their complaint within the scope of jurisdiction of the intelligence community and if it is then we suggest they get a lawyer we suggest they talk inspector general which is what happened here the whistleblower did exactly what they should except for the president that's unforgivable because the whistleblower explosion wrongdoing of the president in the president's view that makes him or her a traitor or spy as the president tells us there's a way we used to treat traders in spots you wonder why we want to call the whistle blower first of all we know first hand what the whistleblower road second hand in the complaint there's no need for that was a poor anymore except to further and changer that person's life that to me does not seem a worthwhile object for anyone in this chamber on the other side of this building in the oval office or anywhere else thank you counsel Mister manager center from rock Rhode Island that was congressman Adam Schiff by own behalf and on behalf of senators Blumenthal Barker Coons club Charly he marquee Peters and you'd all I sent a question of the desk question coming out from Democrats just a moment ago we heard a question from Republican senator Ted Cruz of Texas asking whether the White House whatever raising questions about whistle blowers essentially and Adam Schiff use that to pivot to talk about was the blower protections and quote my several Republican members of Congress talking about the importance of our protection here such as recent witness rule which dates back to eighteen ninety three Supreme Court case graves verses United States allows one party to obtain an adverse inference against the other for failure to produce a witness under that parties control with material information here one party the president has prevented witnesses within his control from testifying or providing documents to the house managers believe senators should apply the missing witness rule here and if so what adverse inferences should we draw about the missing testimony and documents just as Roberts reading a question now from Democrats we are several hours into the first day of questions this is a service we do believe that you should draw an adverse inference against the party resisting the testimony of these witnesses like John Bolton courts have long recognized that when a party has relevant evidence within his control which she fails to produce that failure gives rise to an inference that that evidence is on favorable to him courts have frequently drawn adverse inferences where party acts in bad faith to conceal evidence or preclude witnesses from offering testimony and I would suggest that is bad faith when some when council comes before you and says that if you really wanted these witnesses you should assume to get them in the house and goes into the court room a down the street and says you can't so to get witnesses before the house but that's what's happened here and you are I think not only permitted but actually should draw an adverse inference that when a party is making that argument both sides of the your house if that the evidence those witnesses would provide runs against them now the administration hasn't produced a single document not one single document it's extraordinary they can argue executive privilege an absolute immunity most of that has nothing to do with the overwhelming majority stock it's not a whit there's no absolute immunity from providing documents the vast vast majority don't have anything to do with religion if they did they would be redactions very specific reductions none of that happened are you allowed to draw an adverse inference that the reason why the presence team which has possession of those emails regarding increased by Ukraine to why the eight was frozen are you allowed to draw an inference if they won't show you those emails those emails would confirm that Ukraine new the aid was withheld just like the former deputy foreign minister Ukraine said publicly when she told The New York Times yes we knew it by the end of July we knew this is the deputy foreign minister at the time we knew the aid was frozen but I was instructed by Andre your mark not to mention it I had a trip planned to Washington talk to Congress I was told not to go why because they didn't want to public are you entitled drawn inference that those records they refused to turn over all the state department records the fact that they won't allow John Bolton notes to be turned over they won't let investor Taylor's notes to be turned over should you draw an adverse inference you're darn right you should now they say well the present only told someone no quid pro quo they leave out the other half were Sunland told Taylor but he said no

"Had an article and explain specifically and just a light twenty second just three days before the July twenty fifth call The Washington Post reported that Mr Shokan the prosecutor quote believe his ouster was because of his interest in the company and quote referring to Parisina and he said that quote had he remained in his post he would have questioned hunter Biden and quote so I think it is a reasonable inference that as there were these articles being published in close proximity to the time this was information that was available to the president and it became available to him as something that was a specific example of potentially serious corruption and remember everyone testified who was asked about it does it seem like there's an appearance of a conflict of interest is is seem like that's fishy everyone testified below yes there is at least an appearance of a conflict of interest there and I think it was after the information had come to Mr Giuliani longer for vice president Biden had announced his candidacy that it came to the attention of the president and became something worth raising because again president Poroshenko is the one who fired the prosecutor while he's still the president it's not a really as much of a an opportunity possibility of raising that and so I think it was in that time frame along that mark of the timing that it came to the president's intention and that's why it was raised in that time thank you thank the fastest we just heard from Patrick filled in with the president's legal team I have a question for the council for the president if you we're seeing lots of Republicans directing questions to the president's legal team and lots of Democrats directing questions to the house managers although there are exceptions to that sixteen hours for questions today of sixteen hours allotted on and it's the first day of questioning so it appears just as rob has did anyone in the White House or outside the White House tell anyone in the White House counsel's office the publication of the Bolton book would be politically problematic for the president question about the news today Brad the news this week regarding former national security adviser John Bolton spoke the manuscript of which has been a major focus of conversation throughout the weekend especially today just as your pattern filter for the question no no one from the inside the White House or outside the White House and told us that the publication of the book would be problematic for the president I I think we assume that Mister Bolton was disgruntled and we didn't expect he was going to be saying a lot of nice things about the president but no no one told us anything like that so Mr from Texas events are there from the field and speaking on behalf of the president here's Texas senator Ted Cruz thank you waiting for a question now to be submitted to Chief Justice Roberts as I was saying there sixteen hour set aside for questioning this is the first day of questioning in the sent in the US Senate impeachment trial of president trump and there's a car going up to justice Roberts right now the question from the senators to the house managers an August twenty six twenty nineteen letter from the intelligence community inspector general to the director of national intelligence discussing the so called whistle blower stated that the inspector general identified some indicia of an arguable political bias on the part of the complainant in favor of a rival political candidate multiple media outlets reported that this likely referred to the whistle blowers work with Joe Biden did the so called whistle blower work at any point for our with Joe Biden if so did he work for or with Joe Biden on issues involving Ukraine and did he assist in any material way with the quid pro quo in which in which then vice president Biden has admitted to conditioning loan guarantees to Ukraine on the firing of the prosecutor investigating a response we just heard a question from Texas senator Ted Cruz Republican read by Chief Justice John Roberts these pauses we here are as the papers are shuffled around cards are sent to the front in this case Adam Schiff congressman Adam Schiff officials or should I want to be very careful how I answered so as not to disclose or give an indication of that may allow others to identify the identity of the whistleblower but first I want to talk about why we're making such an effort to protect the identity whistleblower if you could put up slide forty eight the little pause here as a a slight is being pulled up it takes a minute sometimes for us on different papers to be shuffle in many cases a lightly displayed some of you to read so let me try to actually you

"A drug deal let's start with a key meeting that took place on July tenth just two weeks before president trump's now famous July twenty fifth call with presidents Lansky ambassador Bolton hosted senior craning officials in his west wing office that meeting included doctor hill lieutenant colonel Veneman ambassadors Sunland invoke and energy secretary Rick Perry as they did in every meeting they took with US officials Ukrainian officials asked when president trump would schedule a White House meeting for the newly elected Ukrainian president because the it was very important for the Ukrainian president the new president of an embattled democracy being invaded by this by the by Russia to show that he had legitimacy by meeting with United States doctor hill testified that ambassador son then blurted out that he had a deal with Mr Mulvaney for White House visit provided that Ukraine first announce investigations into the present political presence political rivals ambassador Boden immediately stiffened and ended the meeting that this testimony is on the screen in other words ambassador Boden and others at the meeting they were interested in national security the United States they were interested in protecting an American ally against Russian invasion they couldn't understand why this sudden order was coming from the president to abandon that ally because they didn't yet know they didn't yet know of the president's plot to try to extort the Ukrainian government into doing him a political favor by announcing an investigation of a political rival when doctor hill reported back to invest in a boat and about the second conversation ambassador Bolton told doctor hill to go to the national security council's legal adviser John Eisenberg and telling quote I am not part of whatever drug deal silent imovane you're cooking up on this here is an excerpt excerpt over hearing testimony specific instruction walls that I have to go to the lawyers to John Eisenberg I was senior counsel for the National Security Council to basically say you tell Eisenberg impossible and told me that I am not policy of the this whatever drug deal that motivating and some Belinda cooking up what did you understand him to mean by the drug deal that nothing in song when we're cooking up I took it to mean investigations for amazing did you go speak to the lawyers I certainly did these statements and events are reason enough to insist that ambassador Bolton testified he can explain the misconduct the cause and to characterize Ukraine deal the Ukraine scheme as a drug deal and why he directed his subordinates to report their concerns to legal counsel you can tell us everything else he knows about how best to sound and Mr Mulvaney and others were attempting to press the Ukrainians to do president trump's political bidding once more only invested Bolton can tell us what he was thinking and what he knew was this game developed that is why the president fears his testimony that is why some members of this body fear his testimony ambassador bones involvement was not limited to a few isolated events he was a witness at key moments in the course of the Ukraine's game and especially in July August and September last year I would like to walk through some of those events please remember is I'm describing them that this is not the entire universe of issues to which in basket of Bolton could testify only examples that show why he is such an important witness and why the president is desperate to block his testimony we know from ambassador bones attorney that there may be other meetings and conversations that have not yet come to our attention but to take one example we know from witness testimony that ambassador Boden repeatedly expressed concerns about the involvement of president trump's personal lawyer Mr Giuliani in the spring and summer of two thousand nineteen ambassador Bolton court when Mr Giuliani's involvement in Ukraine and soon began to express concerns ambassador Bolton expressed strong concerns about Mr Giuliani's involvement in Ukraine matters when ambassador Boden describe Mr Giuliani is quote a hand grenade that was going to blow everybody up and quote it was based on his fear that Mr Giuliani's work on behalf of the president is it time save you quite an ounce these investigations the sham investigations and his campaign to smear ambassador Evanovich would ultimately backfire and cause lasting damage to the president it turns out he was right I did your boss at the doctor about I mean ambassador Bolton's tell you that Giuliani was quote a hand grenade into a glass what do you think he meant by his characterization of Giuliani as a hand grenade what he meant by this was pretty clear to me in the context of all of the statements that Mr Giuliani was making publicly thought the investigations that he was promoting that the storyline he was promoting the narrative of he was promoting was going to backfire I think it has backfired in June as ambassador Bolton became aware of Mr Giuliani's coordination with ambassadors vocal in silent he told doctor hill and other members of the National Security Council staff that quote nobody should be meeting with Giuliani on quote but he of course did not know of the plaque as to why people were meeting with Giuliani the president's plot doctor hill also testified that ambassador Bolton's quote closely monitoring with Mr Giuliani was doing in the messaging that he was sending out but emboldened was keenly aware Mr Giuliani was doing the president's bidding that is also why the president fears this testimony during a meeting on June thirteenth two thousand nineteen ambassador both made clear that he supported more engagement with Ukraine by senior White House officials but question that quote Mister Giuliani was a key voice with the president on Ukraine close quote he joked that every time you grain is mentioned Giuliani pops up bass in a boat and also communicated directly with Mr Giuliani a key junctures according to court records obtained by the house Mr Giuliani connected with ambassador Bolton's office three times we've called between April twenty third and may tenth two thousand nineteen a time period that corresponds with the recall of ambassador your vantage and acceleration of Mr Giuliani's efforts on behalf of president trump to pressure you crane into opening investigations that would benefit his reelection campaign for instance on April twenty third the day before the state department recalled ambassador Evanovich from Ukraine Mr Giuliani had an eight minute twenty eight second call from the White House thirty minutes later he had a forty eight second call with the phone number associated with ambassador Bolton if called to testify we can ask ambassador bone directly what transpired in that call and whether that phone call informed his assessment that Mr Giuliani was quote a hand grenade it was going to blow everyone up and we can ask Mister Bolton why when there are approximately one point eight million companies in Ukraine several hundred thousand of which have been accused of corruption the president was focused on only one he didn't care than anything else he get only about the company on which the former vice president's son had been a board member can you believe that he was concerned with corruption and only knew about one company when the hundreds of thousands they were accused of corruption no although in **** of Bolton did not listen in on the July twenty fifth call between president trump and presents Lansky in which president trump asked new cranium president a favor a favorite to investigate one company and Joe Biden's son we have learned from witness testimony that ambassador voting was opposed to scheduling the call in the first place why because he accurately predicted in the words of ambassador Taylor that quote there could be some talk of investigations or worse on the call in fact they did not want to call to happen at all because he quote thought it was going to be a disaster how did ambassador both know that president trump would bring this up what made him so concerned that a call would be a disaster I think we know but only ambassador Bolton can answer these questions we also know based on extensive witness testimony that throughout this period multiple people on the National Security Council staff reported concerns to invest in a boat and about tying American foreign policy to president trump's quote domestic political Erin as doctor hill so aptly put it after he abruptly ended the July tenth meeting the meeting in which ambassador sound and abruptly told the Ukrainians that a White House meeting could be scheduled in exchange for the an ounce investigations invested a bonus spoke to doctor hill and directed her to report it concerns the national security council's legal adviser John Eisenberg at the end of August ambassador Boden advising **** Taylor to send the first person cable to secretary pump pale to relay concerns about the hold on the military aid **** of Bolton also advise Mister Marcin doctor hill successor as the top Russia and Ukraine official on the National Security Council I at least two different occasions to report what he had heard to the national security council's lawyers it's sounding so suspicious on September first ambassador bone directed at Mr Marcin to report to the national security council's lawyers and explicit proposal from ambassador Simon to a senior Ukrainian official that quote what can help them move the aid was if the prosecutor general would go to the Mike and announced that he was opening the charisma investigation close quote on September seventh ambassador Bolton instructed Mr Marcin to report to the lawyers another conversation Mr Marcin had with ambassador Sunderland this time investors sound that had conveyed the administration would not release the eight military aid unless president so Lansky announcing investigations demanded by president trump the investigations of one company because the president was so concerned about the corruption in Ukraine one company that had had the job as vice president Biden's son on the board and the president just happened to pick that company from hundreds of thousands to be concerned about corruption and the president also oppose funding for corruption and aged to Ukraine why did ambassador Bolton tele subordinates to report these issues to the National Security Council lawyers what does he know about how the lawyers responded to the concerns of doctor hill or lieutenant colonel Benjamin I miss the Marcin again only ambassador Bolton can answer these questions and we must assume that the answers go to the heart of the president's misconduct given the president's attempt to block his testimony why would the president oppose the testimony of his own appointee as a National Security Council advise it the visor national security adviser the United States unless he knew that that testimony would be damning they have and those are other reasons the president fears ambassador Bolton's testimony I'd like to turn now to ambassador bowed his knowledge of and concerns about president trump's illegal withholding of the military aid to Ukraine and we all know of course then under the anti impoundment act of nineteen seventy four past to prevent president Nixon from refusing to spend money appropriated by Congress withholding money appropriated by Congress is illegal none the less resident did it for obviously corrupt motives by July of last year ambassador Bolton was well aware the president trump was illegally withholding security assistance to Ukraine and he had his subordinates try to convince the president to pursue America's national security interests and release the eight instead of continuing to withhold vital military assistance to the president instead of holding that vital military assistance hostage to the president's personal political agenda throughout the rest of July over the course of several interagency meetings the National Security Council repeatedly discussed the freeze on Ukraine security assistance as national security adviser ambassador Bolton's supervise that process these meetings work their way up to the level of cabinet deputies and every agency involved except for the office of management and budget supported releasing the eight in the meanwhile said his position was based on president trump's express orders we know that a number of individuals at OMB and the department of defense raise serious concerns about the legality of freezing the funds which we know is illegal and we are now have an explicit ruling from the government accountability office which we didn't need because we knew it that's why the law was passed in nineteen seventy four that the freeze ordered by president trump was illegal and he was obviously told this and violated the impoundment control act we also know that after the meeting of cabinet deputies on July twenty sixth Jim Morrison talked to ambassador Bolton's and according to miss them Marcin ambassador Boden said that the entire cabinet supported releasing the freeze I wanted to get the issue to president trump as soon as possible when did ambassador Bolton's first become aware that president trump was withholding military aid to Ukraine and conditioning the release of that aid on Ukraine announcing political investigations why was he told was the reason what else did you learn about the president's actions in these meetings again only ambassador Bolton can answer these questions and again we must this resume that president trump is desperate for us not to hear those answers I hope not too many of the members of this body are desperate to make sure that the American people don't hear the same answers we know that ambassador Bolton tried without success throughout August to persuade the president that the aid to Ukraine had to be released because that was in America's best interest and necessary for national security in mid August we know lieutenant colonel Benjamin wrote a presidential decision memorandum recommending that the freeze be lifted based on the consensus views of the entire cabin the memo is given to refer to ambassador boat who subsequently had a direct one on one conversation with the president in which he tried but failed to convince them to release the whole he said impassable had a one on one meeting with president trump in late August twenty nineteen but the president was not yet ready to approve the release of the assistance do you remember that services this is two twenty six yes to two sixty six and two sixty eight but I'm asking you did that happen or did not I just want to be I want to be clear in your dressing up okay Sir Isaac and you testified that what was the outcome.

"Ask the Ukrainian the president to announce these political investigations which is of course exactly what happened of course it went to being investigations all he cared about was an announcement to smear a political rival in the United States he repeatedly urges staff to report their own concerns about the president's conduct to legal counsel that isn't as in a boat in the at the present as this game was unfolding finally as national security adviser he also objected to the presence freezing of military aid for Ukraine and advocated for the release of that aid including directly with president trump and of course as we all know the impoundment control act makes illegal residents withholding of that aid after Congress had voted for it but the president ignored the warnings about that because all he cared about was smearing a political rival woman nothing to him ambassador Bolton has made clear that he is ready willing and able to testify about everything he witnessed but president trump does not want you to hear from ambassador both in and the reason is nothing to do with executive privilege or this other nonsense and the reason has nothing to do with national security if the president cared about national security he would not of black military assistance to a vulnerable strategic ally in the attempt to secure a personal political favor for himself no the president does not want you to hear from ambassador Bolton because the president does not want the American people to hear firsthand testimony about the misconduct at the heart of this trial the question is whether the Senate will be complicit in the president's crimes by covering them up any senator who votes against ambassador Bolton's testimony or any relevant testimony shows that he or she wants to be part of the cover up what are the possible reason is there to prohibit a relevant witness from testifying here unfortunately so far I've seen every Republican senator has shown that they want to be part of the cover up by voting against every document and witness propose ambassador Bolton is a firsthand witness to president trump's abuse of power as the national security adviser he reported directly to the president and supervise the entire National Security Council that included three key witnesses with responsibility for Ukraine matters who testified in great detail before the house Dr Fiona hill to Marcin and lieutenant colonel Alexander of Intamin moreover in his role John Bolton was a tip of the spear for president trump I national security it was his responsibility to oversee everything happening in the trump administration regarding foreign policy and national security by virtue of his unique position appointed by the president Bolton had knowledge of the latest intelligence and developments in our relationship with Ukraine including our support of the country and its new president and that is why the president and some members of this body are afraid to hear from ambassador Bolton because they know he knows too much there is also substantial evidence that ambassador Bolton kept a keen eye and Rudy Giuliani who is acting on behalf of the president in connection with Ukraine as we will describe the **** of Bolton communicated directly with Mr Giuliani at key moments he knows the details of the so called drug deal he would later warned against perhaps most importantly vacina Bolton has said both that he will testify and the area and that he is relevant information that is not yet been disclosed a key witnesses come forward and confirm not only that he participated in critically important events but that he has no evidence we have not yet heard that is precisely what ambassador Bolton has done his lawyer tells us that ambassador Bolton was quote personally involved in many of the events meetings and conversations about which the house your testimony as well as many relevant meetings and conversations that have not yet been discussing the testimony thus far close quote ambassador Boden was requested as a witness in the house enquiring but he refused to appear voluntarily his lawyers inform the house intelligence committee then invested boat would take the matter to court to be sure to subpoenas as a subordinate did but the ambassadors changes soon he recently issued a statement confirming that quoted the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony I am prepared to testify so the question presented as dumb **** of Bolton is clear it comes down to this well the Senate do its duty and hear all the evidence I would slam this door shot and show it is participating in a cover up because it fears to hear testimony from the nationals former National Security Council chairman the former national security adviser of the present because it fears what he might say it's fear she knows too much consider is this as well why is president trump so intent on preventing us from hearing ambassador Bolton his own appointee is formally trusted confidante because he knows he knows his guilt and he knows that he doesn't want people who know about it to testify question is whether the Republican senators here today will participate in that cover up the reasons seem clear president trump wants to block this witness because ambassador Bolton has direct knowledge of the Ukraine's game which he called a drug deal let's start with the key meeting that took place on July tenth just two weeks before president trump's now famous July twenty fifth call with presidents Lansky ambassador Bolton hosted senior craning officials in his west wing office that meeting included doctor hill lieutenant colonel Veneman ambassadors Sunland invoke and energy secretary Rick Perry as they did in every meeting they took with US officials Ukrainian officials asked when president trump would schedule a White House meeting for the newly elected Ukrainian president because the it was very important for the Ukrainian president the new president of an embattled democracy being invaded by this by the by Russia to show that he had legitimacy by meeting with United States doctor hill testified that ambassador son then blurted out that he had a deal with Mr Mulvaney for White House visit provided that Ukraine first announce investigations into the present political presence political rivals ambassador Bolton immediately stiffened and ended the meeting that the hills testimony is on the screen in other words ambassador Boden and others at the meeting they were interested in national security the United States they were interested in protecting an American ally against Russian invasion they couldn't understand why this sudden order was coming from the president to abandon that ally because they didn't yet know they didn't yet know of the president's plot to try to extort the Ukrainian government into doing him a political favor by announcing an investigation of a political rival when doctor hill reported back to invest in a boat and about the second conversation ambassador Bolton told doctor hill to go to the national security council's legal adviser John Eisenberg and telling quote I am not part of whatever drug deal signed in them of any are cooking up on this here is an excerpt excerpt over hearing testimony a specific instruction walls that I have to go to the lawyers to John Eisenberg I was senior counsel for the National Security Council to basically say you tell Eisenberg impossible and told me that I am not policy of the this whatever drug deal but most any in some Belinda cooking up what did you understand him to mean by the drug deal that mo veiny and sign when we're cooking up I took it to mean investigations for amazing did you go speak to the lawyers I certainly did these statements and events are reason enough to insist that ambassador Bolton testify he can explain the misconduct the cause and to characterize Ukraine deal the Ukraine scheme as a drug deal and why he directed his subordinates to report their concerns to legal counsel he can tell us everything else he knows about how best to sound and Mr Mulvaney and others were tending to press the Ukrainians to do president trump's political bidding once more only ambassador Bolton can tell us what he was thinking and what he knew was this game developed that is why the president fears his testimony that is why some members of his body fear his testimony ambassador bones involvement was not limited to a few isolated events he was a witness at key moments in the course of the Ukraine's game and especially in July August and September last year I would like to walk through some of those events please remember is I'm describing them that this is not the entire universe of issues two engine Bassett Bolton could testify only examples that show why is such an important witness and why the president is desperate to block his testimony we know from ambassador bones attorney that there may be other meetings and conversations that have not yet come to our attention but to take one example we know from witness testimony that ambassador Bolton repeatedly expressed concerns about the involvement of president trump's personal lawyer Mr Giuliani in the spring and summer of two thousand nineteen ambassador Bolton court win of Mr Giuliani's involvement in Ukraine and soon began to express concerns ambassador Bolton expressed strong concerns about Mr Giuliani's involvement in Ukraine matters when ambassador Boden describe Mr Giuliani is quote a hand grenade that was going to blow everybody up unquote it was based on his fear that Mr Giuliani's work on behalf of the president his attempts to have Ukraine an ounce these investigations these jam investigations and his campaign to smear ambassador Evanovich would ultimately backfire and cause lasting damage to the president it turns out he was right I did your boss at the doctor wrote I mean ambassador Boden tell you that Giuliani was quote a hand grenade into a glass what do you think he meant by his characterization of Giuliani as a hand grenade what he meant by this was pretty clear to me in the context of all of the statements that Mr Giuliani was making publicly stop the investigations that he was promoting that the storyline he was promoting the narrative of he was promotion was going to backfire I think it has backfired in June as ambassador Bolton became aware of Mr Giuliani's coordination with ambassadors vocal in silent he told doctor hill and other members of the National Security Council staff that quote nobody should be meeting with Giuliani on quote but he of course did not know of the plot as to why people were meeting with Giuliani the president's plot doctor hill also testified that ambassador Boden was quote closely monitoring with Mr Giuliani was doing in the messaging that he was sending out but in Bolton was keenly aware Mr Giuliani was doing the president's bidding that is also why the president fears his testimony during a meeting on June thirteenth two thousand nineteen ambassador Bolton made clear that he supported more engagement with Ukraine by senior White House officials but question that quote Mister Giuliani was a key voice with the president on Ukraine close quote he joked that every time you grain is mentioned Giuliani pops up bass in a boat and also communicated directly with Mr Giuliani a key junctures according to court records obtained by the house Mr Giuliani connected with ambassador Bolton's office three times for brief because between April twenty third and may tenth.

"Game. Saints one. Claim anything plane remains found when the best kept secrets you went flat. So when the game cheese. Show. Her is what's the word. Angrier today that I was yesterday. Oh, now, what have women what could possibly happen? You wouldn't believe some of the takes. I'm glad you're not here because I you're you're can you can be a bad person you'd like to feed into the takes that I know what you're doing. But other people don't just keep going through. I didn't. Hit me. I wanna hear these takes. I mean, Dana data decide kyri isn't a Celtic like the essence of him, which is very like Yankee fan take. I don't even know. I don't know. Thank you. Yeah. Yeah. You didn't earn his Kelly. Green. Like, I don't know. What that means means he didn't wanna title. We didn't want to basically I would mean for sure in which he definitely didn't. So he's not wrong. What else you get first four? I don't want to what everyone is doing nationally locally everything is just talking about. Like, why didn't the Celtics win? I'll tell you why. The Milwaukee Bucks are much better at basketball for sure. Now, I think we're more just laughing at the Celtics now winning Nanno Robbo. We'd know why that there are other people who don't. The bucks deserve a lot of credit game on the garden. Fuck. Yeah. They got fucking Molly opt in the mouth, and they were basically fan. I was like all that for a drop of blood. Like, that's all it was it was a drop of blood. They put a band aid on and just gave the Celtics behinds like they didn't really change anything from games two through five. They just kept playing. They are game. It's like it's kinda like a book thing. Like, it's when it's going bad. It's like others, but no adjustments. But like when it's going well like, he's. Not wrong like by game. He's like we just need to play better. If we play our game, it's like Calipari type thing, and if you say winning it's like, Yep. And if not it's like well. The. We play we dictate to the game. We're gonna keep doing what we're doing. Because that's what made us the best and also credit to may for pecking the bucks to win the east before these playoffs. Someone even said they went back and listen to the first mix tape episode ever. I predicted the bucks would make the finals in twenty nine to who they're playing on important. But I got that Minnesota Ford swine. Sure what? Sure. But yeah, I saw the vision on one I didn't know arouses damn good at another. We're going to surround Janas with view absolute perfect players. So they chopped bottom. Milwaukee deserves a whole heap of credit. They've lost sixteen games this year. Like that. I saw something yesterday to the most twenty point wins in in the playoffs like tied forever for like a whole run. I don't even think it's through two rounds. I think it's just everyday five nut like the like the entire time. The only knock is been as they've never done it before everything every other. But it's like they can rebounding shoot they have a star that complete with anybody to have a coach ever deep bench. They have a home court like they they've got everything analogy there in the conference finals. I don't know what the. Argument is honestly, yes. So I didn't wanna come on here. And just bitch about like, I'm going to bitch about the Celtics. I'm alighted day share will. But I didn't want it to to be every other shell like, the bucks, absolutely. Fucking wagon as simple implant yacht us, some monster. Eric Bledsoe is a front runner offensively. But he I mean his defense a series outside of game. One was a tremendous impact on the entire series. George the best player in the league. The. Which we all we all ready knew that. But it just needs to be set again. And if they can figure out a way against Toronto and whoever they play in the finals to to keep Ilyasova in miratec on the court and not have exposed defensively than they become exponentially more dangerous on I think that's where brogden comes into play. Just having that it's like you can either keep like one of those guys on and they have like just enough defense to cover to where like right just exploited. And I think like that I think brogden unlocks lot. That's where it's more than fifteen a game. Yeah. That's why I was confused why he was even playing last night. But now the thing about it. That was just a perfect time for him to get some some practicing get hundred seventeen minutes, Tim four three plus fourteen. He's back break a sweat. If villain you still get it. Get your lungs up a little bit just or now, I wish I would broke slip. But we'll get him. Ho. Urban. That's how you're gonna say, Marcus. I was like he almost died in that game. Verging mock not today, there are three people I won't take any Celtics slander on which more hat. Smart smart almost died when brook Lopez like through through the court. I thought he was Mr. tough, man. What happened I lend us more than like a year and a half. Man, you're on the old once he got I've I'm not talking about you talking about you. I'm talking about like anyone kyri limited Irvine yet. No, he's and he's gonna get it. It's like just their three players. I have who played their game throughout the entire playoffs who deserve all the credit in the world. Let's Marcus Morris who was electric he great Bolton's court. I wish I opposition. That's I think that's. Fine with it definitely is. But I think that's about as far as the Marcus Morris. Led offensive team can go the second round. Jalen Brown hair anything negative about Jaylen Brown. He looks ears because I guess stinks. Sure. Does like I'm living about Jalen. I just like I feel like I keep seeing like the takes heaven adjusted since his rookie year. Like, that's what I feel like he had a very good playoff. And I just like I saw takes today was like gotta figure like this might be a fluke from Jalen browse. I would I would we see? There was fifty. He didn't start hitting like eighty five percent of his threes or start getting tennis to game. I I don't know. But yes, hoosiers. Marcus smart, mostly really didn't play. And when he did he fucking was diving all over the place trying which I respect the I would have preferred if he never got her. I don't know what it changes, honestly. And that Don does not a joke. They just wouldn't change anything. Like, I think it would have been like like things have changed just wouldn't have mattered like it would've been the same result. Like Middleton scored two less points game, but they winning by twenty five. So that doesn't matter. That's why I say nothing, right. For kyri. I don't have a problem with him missing slack. I have a problem with him missing shots in the sense that I'd prefer they go in. But I didn't see this like at like Jerry Thornton just wrote a blog saying, he's the the number one guy all time who couldn't handle Boston. Yes. Wilmot up. I like Dave Portnoy who's very on the record of saying that LeBron was Kyrie's number two. When the Cavs won the finals. That's the thing. He liked truly believes in his height. I know is now is now saying kyri can't win as the number one. Which in his argument already has done. I don't think it's crazy to say carry can't win the number one. I just don't see it is as big of a negative is ever wanted to be like there's a there's a lot of guys who've made the hall of fame as number twos. And they were all damn good. So I don't like like Scottie Pippen was number two not saying carries Scotty or anything like that. But he was a number two. And when he was a number one he got his teams to the Western Conference finals finals one year like really good. But not a guy who could win by himself. You know what I mean? I don't think it's for. Slight to be all time number two. Again. I think it's like the like Blake Chris Paul thing. It's like, right. We just see how far that can go is your number one one of those guys your number two. You can probably win a championship with Carrie we've seen it. You can win a championship. And I. Now about rows will say I had and like all whatever he does a summer. I appreciate him wanting to take that step like to see if he had like, he's still might right? He's what twenty seven by him not doing it. Now doesn't mean he can't now I don't think he can. And again, that's not a not just a select few those guys in history. I think he can under the rarest of scenarios and I compared it to.
