A. today he watched all five plus hours of testimony and is here to go in depth bart your take aways well I guess the biggest surprise walking out both by lawmakers and by observers in the room was that was how quiet was how polite the hearing was it going into it we expect a lot of animosity we you know you could have had a lot of maneuvering about witnesses about debating about how the hearing gets handled and really there was very little of that not very much to both sides took it very seriously every bit of the day it's remain holed lawmakers with with a standard hearing you might have people coming and going all day people sat in their chairs they listened for what wound up being about six hours with a couple of short recesses so the collegiality the politeness was sort of a surprise given the strong feelings on both sides of the issue about what ought to happen yeah so what that's an interesting point why the civility all of a sudden well I think both sides I think everyone recognizes that there's a national audience now there's potentially millions of people nationwide watching this on television they're going to be trying to make up their minds about the witnesses what what information is being conveyed and I would argue but my sense of it was that both sides I think they have a winning hand the Democrats basically chairman of the intelligence committee Adam ship by California Democrat laid out the argument at the beginning saying you know president Donald Trump to ask you crane to conduct an investigation into his political rival former vice president Joe Biden in addition he withheld military aid that the country desperately needed in its resistance to Russia and if you think that either of those things is an abuse of power that could lead to an article of impeachment in addition the president maneuvered in a couple of ways to prevent Congress from learning about this he told the state department and other agencies not to cooperate not to submit to subpoenas and so that could potentially be an obstruction of Congress article of impeachment so do you think they have a strong argument yeah but meanwhile the Republicans Hey the president of Ukraine Vladimir's alleged he didn't know military aid was being withheld when trump asked for an investigation of the bidens the aid was released without any investigation being announced on September the it was released on September eleventh and so the Republicans are just hammering out represented John Radcliffe Republican of Texas just said there was no pressure there was no deal there were no conditions and basically nothing happened so they I thank you like they've got a pretty strong case for Singapore Jensen justice department reporter at USA today recapping day one of the public face of the impeachment inquiry into president trump what about this if these two were considered the quote on quote star witnesses on day one what about the next witnesses including into next week our they expected to move the needle or was this supposed to be a home run on day one I don't think no I I do not think that this was supposed to be a home run on day one I I think that these were witnesses to set the foundation of what the debate is and bill Taylor the Sade to fairs in Ukraine it took a lot of notes and he was sort of the guy who can lay out here's all the concerns here sort of the time line they laid the foundation of the debate then on Friday we're expecting more read your fun of it she is the former ambassador you to Ukraine she was recalled in April trump god didn't care for her she was also the subject of criticism by trump's personal lawyer Rudy guiliani for months saying basically they didn't like the way she was carrying out US diplomacy in the Ukraine and so they recalled her so he will talk about that campaign but not as much directly about the military aid in the phone call of the the phone call that trump had with president Lewinsky on July twenty fifth the next week we have another bunch of out of state and national security officials the one next week will be a lieutenant colonel Alexander vin man he is on the National Security Council he listened in on the call and he was somebody he he has denied being the whistle blower but he raised concerns about the political investigation even without even before you get to the military aid and so whether he those types of people especially been men will be showing up in uniform sports bar Jansen justice department reporter that

"You know to that point again we're talking about fox media and fox news yeah we sit we've seen the strategy by by conservative media end the president in terms of undermining the credibility of certain witnesses the latest example being Kerr colonel Alexander vin men during the closed door proceedings do you think Margot will see more of that going forward in this impeachment inquiry yes this is absolutely you know trump's methodology is to you know counter punch to disparage I mean he learned it at the at the knee of of right cone and you know it's always never admit wrongdoing and always go on the attack so we will see that and it's it's going to happen more and more and that's you know we have to no that and sort of you know I think we can write about it I think we can take it on but again as Brian says it's not our role to persuade it's our it's our role to tell the story so it's going to be for you know it's going to be very challenging time I will say that despite all the attention on social media and Brian's absolutely right about how we live in a different media sphere now I do think that the televised aspect of seeing these were witnesses or spokespeople who are credible and to have a strong background will be very persuasive for people I I think that the televised medium is a powerful one even if it's cut up into pieces by social media and you know we see it in bits and pieces it's still going to make a huge difference in terms of people hearing it and truly getting it for the first time we're going to have to take a quick break and I feel like that the public is also hearing to out we've been watching hearings for quite some time now so we're gonna talk about the effect that that has on television or radio coming up we'll be back with market Solomon and Brian Stelter on this Wednesday's televised impeachment hearings after.

Trump's Impeachment Inquiry: How did we get here?
"It started with one whistle blower now less than two months later a full blown impeachment inquiry set to reach a critical phase the first public testimony that will likely shape public perceptions of the investigation and the future of the trump presidency the central questions wasn't an abuse of power for the president to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival here at home was he acting to further his own personal and political interests by withholding military aid from a key US ally with all of the rhetoric flying from both sides of the aisle and president trump's own free wheeling defense we wanted to hit the pause button and ask how did we get here the actions taken to date by the president has seriously violated the constitution September twenty fourth house speaker Nancy Pelosi formally opens an impeachment inquiry after a bomb shell whistle blower complaint raised concerns over trump still only phone call with the Ukrainian president for autumn years Lewinski conversation was was perfect my phone call was perfect according to a White House memo detailing that call trump tells the Ukrainian president we do a lot for Ukraine so let's get laid a response we are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically buying American anti tank missiles trump's response I would like you to do is a favor though he goes on to ask for Lenski to investigate a deep funk theory about the twenty sixteen election and then a second request an investigation into his democratic rival it goes to the core of whether the president views his office to seek political help in his reelection campaign and did so to the detriment of our nation's security house Democrats said they should at least twenty six subpoenas and at least fifteen individuals have appeared before Congress according to witness testimony trumps the man was forced to fight his top advisors including his acting chief of staff and his personal attorney in phone calls and meetings for months among the key testimony so far bill Taylor the top US diplomat in Ukraine who told Congress he was told everything including military aid in a White House meeting was contingent on Ukraine's willingness to launch the investigation trump requested Gordon son one the US ambassador to the U. who in a stunning about face room bar I used his testimony Sonya now saying he told a top Ukranian official Ukraine would likely not receive military aid unless you crane publicly agreed to investigate trumps targets and lieutenant colonel Alexander vin meant a White House national security official who was on that July phone call then men recalled one meeting in particular were senior Ukrainian officials were told they had to investigate the bidens could've been men also testified he was told to hold on military aid came from the White House chief of staff's office in the face of mounting evidence the president has been unrelenting in his defense which is all a hoax Republicans largely closing ranks around the president as Democrats move for work those open hearings will be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves to make their own determinations about the credibility of the witnesses but also to learn first hand about the facts of the president's misconduct and joining me now to break this down further is ABC news senior national correspondent Terry Moran and Terry I want to start with these public hearings and who the public will see testify to big witnesses to lead off William Taylor was the acting ambassador in Ukraine and George can a state department official with responsibility over to you gonna get a picture from Kiev from Ukraine and from Washington from two men who were very alarmed about what was going on and that is the end of the at the end of the week Marie on your vitamins who was the ambassador who was pushed out by Rudy Giuliani and others in the administration and Terry really at the heart of this is a federal law that says it would be illegal to accept receive or solicit anything of value from a foreign national in connection with the US election there are those who say the phone transcript itself showed that but now we have this long line of witnesses we do a lot of election lawyers will tell you that the phone transcript does demonstrate that the president violated election law some election lawyers will tell you know because it doesn't have a determinate monetary value and that's a debate in the election law but really this isn't about election what about the constitution and the question does the evidence show that the president abused his power by trying to get a forgot to go after his political rival is that an impeachable offense at the constitution really that I think the Congress and the country's gonna focus in the whistle blower a lot of attention obviously on the whistle blower doesn't sound like that whistle blower will be appearing to think it's important well not from an evidentiary standpoint Adam Schiff the the German intelligence committee said other witnesses in sworn testimony have borne out what the whistle blower complaint says so he's not or she is not necessary in test was probably true from evidence and federal law protects this whistleblower from any kind of retaliation and there is a concern that the inflammatory language might endanger the whistle blower but I cover jury trials for a long time juries like the eyeball witnesses and were talking about overturning a presidential and there will be Americans for whom the impeachment evidence is less persuasive is diminished because we can't see and know the person who started that their motivations and intent and enter and no you covered the click the Clinton impeachment you obviously followed the Nixon impeachment as a little kid but what are the possible outcomes here well the president could be removed from office I think there's some confusion about the word impeachment impeachment is the indictment it is going to go to the floor of the house of representatives almost certainly and it looks as if the present will be pleased to be a trial in the Senate and of sixty seven senators are two thirds of the senators present vote the press will be removed from office but I think ultimately what we're looking at is the final verdict will come from the American people on election day about this conduct about whether or not we want a presidency that goes to other governments for assistance in going after political rivals and that the election day now less than a year away will be the ultimate verdict on all of this thanks as always Terry thanks much so let's bring in democratic representative Jackie spear a member of the intelligence committee which will conduct those public hearings this week thanks so much for joining us let me ask you Robert Mahler's public testimony earlier this year did not galvanize public opinion on the findings of his investigation into Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election and while this is obviously a different allegation how do you make a stronger public case this time I think for a number of reasons first of all I'm Bob Miller's report was four hundred pages long I had a lot of legalese this is a very simple straightforward act the president broke the law he went on a telephone call with the president of Ukraine and said I have a favor though and then proceeded to ask for and investigation of his rival and this is a very strong case of bribery because you have an elected official the president are demanding action of a foreign country in this case of and providing something of value which is the investigation and he is withholding aid which is that official act and the constitution is very clear treason bribery or acts of mission and in this case it is is clearly one of those obviously Republicans would disagree with you on a lot of that Republicans sent their list of witnesses they want to call as part of the intelligence committees public impeachment hearings yesterday it included the whistle blower and hunter Biden this is what intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement last night this inquiry is not and will not serve however as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigation into the bidens or twenty sixteen and in a letter to Republican shift calling the whistle blowers testimony redundant and unnecessary and would only place their personal safety at grave risk it doesn't sound like the chairman will allow Biden or the whistle blower to testify as the Republicans have requested if you're able to guarantee his or her safety why shouldn't the whistle blower testify well the whistleblower actually provided a document he was third hand we have colonel then men who was actually on the call who will be in a position I think to testify and so you have a much more direct person to speak to about the events and if you have the actual transcript of that the president himself provided it is corroboration so you you have up what we have to prove though is corrupt intent and we prove corrupt intent by showing first of all the money was withheld secondly there was concealment there's concealment by virtue of having that transcript Ford into a special server you have concealment because you have persons within the administration who are prevented from testifying you then go further and you have this diversion by the president by trying to focus on the whistle blower who legally has a right not to be this woman even though even though their battle government even though there may be a legal right are are Terry Moran was just saying it's someone the people might want to hear from for for political benefit is that something you should consider having a whistle blower come forward because Republicans have made such an issue of this I think the Republicans are making an issue of anything that they think will give them some gravitas the only thing that the whistle blower can say is that he was told by other people's about the phone call we have the other people coming forward to actually testify so you have direct evidence not indirect evidence and the whistle blower has great risk associated with his life right now and he also has the right under the law under the whistleblower statute to have his whistle blower complaint filed and for him to be anonymous strongly about whistleblower protection and and and you said the rules driving the impeachment process are very equal and yet chairmanship hand turn down those G. O. P. witnesses and the White House lawyers are not allowed to participate in public hearings before the house intelligence committee how's that very equal well there are other witnesses the Republicans have requested that I would think that the press the chairman is going to make available to testify to Morrison is one Kurt Volker is another we want to stay focused on the crane the call and having hunter Biden come in is unrelated to the Ukraine call and so that becomes irrelevant the whistleblower again has protection as it relates to having the witnesses being questioned by someone within the White House that can in fact happen the president can have a conclusion that he can reach at the end of the actual Judiciary Committee hearing and all we're asking for is that we receive what we are rightly deserving which is the documentation from state department all of which is with been withheld and the primary people like Mulvaney who is the chief of staff who took direct orders from the president of course is using this phony argument of absolute immunity which doesn't exist

S. foreign policy not you not the NSC none of that it's incredible to me that Veneman called by the media I hero when he sensually violate the constitution by acting as if the president was violating establish foreign policy the president establishes the foreign policy not you if you don't want to pre participating in it what you do is resigned and do something else who elected Veneman there anything any other whistle blower the name is all over the the western the Washington media about this was a blower and he'll also is a democratic activist who work for Brandon and this guy is a registered Democrat who was against the policy direction of the president what choice to return America from foreign wars back home American soldiers want to come back home they do not want to keep fighting an endless wars and so the president is being subverted not just by Democrats but by military in the White House and by Democrats and Republicans and the news media and California politicians and the merit Chicago and Michelle Obama and a bunch of others who the hell appointed vin meant anything what is established American foreign policy that's what trump says it is he was elected to change things not to follow it to me is disgusting and despicable it's unbelievable the president says foreign policy because it is going to stand up before you and I and next year and the defendant who elected these bureaucrats in experts to implement foreign policy and what occurred obviously in the summer of twenty sixteen is at the White House concocted a scheme to destroy the candidacy of Donald J. trump having failed to do so Obama and Biden won an insurance policy to destroy his presidency and that's what's being played out right now whatever trump did with the Ukraine is nothing compared to what Hillary Clinton did as secretary of state to undermine American foreign policy and as the candidate the Democratic Party the pay Russians to get dirt on trump in order to serve as the basis for the affidavit this new open surveil the trump campaign it was it had to be approved by the White House in fact laces stroke at a text so to one of her lovers saying that the W.

"Honey that just wrapped up today from Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vin men who's the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council we know because the New York Times was first to report last night on the content of Colonel Women's opening statement we know that he was due to tell Congress today the impeachment proceedings about his concerns in the fact that he raised an internal alarm after listening in on the president's call to the president of Ukraine because he believed that what he heard was improper and he reported up the chain of command now according to Julian Barn Nicholas Dawson Danny Hakeem The New York Times we've got more detail as to what colonel testified about let me just tell you what the League Eight of their pieces quote Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Van Minh The top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council told House impeachment investigators today that the White House transcript of July call the president trump and Ukraine's president omitted crucial words and phrases and that his attempts to restore them failed citing three people familiar with testimony they describe this basic process times assessed tonight quote there's no recording of the July twenty fifth call by the American side the White House uses note takers hanging on the call as well as voice recognition software to create a rough transcript that's a close approximation of the call but names and technical terms are frequently missed by the software according to people familiar with the matter after the call took place in which Colonel Vitamin listened in he was given a hard copy of the transcript to make updates and corrections Colonel Vin men went through transcript made changes and gave his written edits to his boss Timothy Morrison who is the current director of your Russia in European affairs at the National Security Council incidentally Mr Morrison is due to testify in the impeachment proceedings of the day after tomorrow but in terms of what Vin men tried to correct in that testimony this is explosive nations Carl Vinson said included president trump's assertion that there were recordings of Joe Biden discussing Ukraine corruption and an explicit explicit mentioned by Ukraine's President Vladimir Zelinski of Burris Maa Holdings the energy company whose board employed Mr Mr Biden son Hunter Colonel Vin men told the Richmond investigators today that he tried to change the reconstructed transcript made by White House staff reflect those omissions but while some of his edits appeared to have been successful those corrections were not made colonel did not testify to a motive behind the editing process but his testimony is likely to drive investigators to ask further questions about how officials handled the call including changes to the transcript and the decision to put it into the White House's most classified computer system it will also drive questions about whether those moves were meant to conceal the calls most controversial aspects yet well joining us now is Michael mcfaul his former US ambassador to Russia he served with colonel in Moscow Mr Ambassador thank you for joining us tonight I really appreciate you making the time church glad to be here Rachel so couple of things are going on here i WanNa talk with you about yours variance of kernel of Inman your reaction to the way his his testimony was treated today I do have to ask your reaction to this breaking news that has just come out from the New York Times that he may have been evolved and seems like was properly involved in trying to make sure the White House transcript slash notes of that call were accurate but when he tried to materially fill in stuff that was left out of the transcript his corrections were rejected does not resonate for you in terms of what you know about how foreign leader calls are handled no doesn't resonate with me at all remember I worked three years at the National Security Council as a senior director listened to many phone calls and my direct turn right this is the equivalent of what Colonel Edmon was serving at the time when he listened to that call they frequently would sit down there in the White House Situation Room next to the transcribers because the transcribers aren't experts on US Ukrainian relations or U S Russian relations and so the directors would listen as well and then correct the record just to make sure they get all the facts right especially as you just noted the proper nouns right who knows what Baristas while there's out is shocking to me that is not standard operating procedure if there is a scandal here if there is something potentially criminal here in terms of the White House trying to you basically locked down the evidence about the president's behavior here improperly classifying this material or moving it or making sure that the records were not correct deliberately to try to prevent people from knowing either inside the government or ultimately in this kind of impeachment proceeding knowing an accurate record of what happened do you believe that the impeachment proceedings will ever be able to get to the bottom of that are these processes in the White House something that leaves enough of a trail that investigators will be able to find it I'm not sure Rachel that's a great question I don't know the answer it it would be hard you know thinking I I had read multiple transcripts in my time at the White House it would be hard for me to retrace like who is the one that actually did the final edits usually it's the directorate in charge right usually it would be me wasn't but who was responsible for that I don't know how you would trace that I do think it underscores something we've talked about before if this was a perfect phone all and then there's nothing to hide why did they put it on this super secret server why are we now learning that they did not put in factually correct to respond to the attacks on him from the President Conservative media some of the president's supporters in Congress essentially questioning his patriotism describing him as having some sort of suspect loyalties because he's from immigrant family I Rachel I want to thank you for what you already said about him before the break a second polarized society here at Stanford we studied the causes of polarization. I personally deal with it I know you personally deal with that I felt yesterday we reached a new low however when I saw what people were saying about dual loyalties hyphenated adjectives maybe he likes rain more than the United States of America and even one suggestion insinuation of espionage because he talks to Ukrainian officials that's in his job description and by the way working at the National Security Council and I just found it completely outrageous and you can tell you know just what have we come to pointed at the National Security Council because he is one of the best and the brightest and the idea that somebody with his resume would not serve the United States of America is just disgusting it's outrageous and I want those people to apologize and remember what they're this season we're going even deeper with the law and order S._V._U..
