"Next the president abandoned since pick to be the country's top intelligence official after bipartisan outrage as another Republican Congress calls it quits tonight is trump's party starting to turn or not Baltimore Pastor praised by the president has a message for trump. After the president called the city rodent infested. He's out front and the president escalating trade war with China issuing a new threat as Americans consumers pay the price strikes. Let's go out and good evening. I'm Erin Burnett out front tonight. Going down in flames. President trump's nominee to lead the U._S. U._S.. Intelligence community has picked for the Director of National Intelligence is done congressman. John ratcliffe forced to withdraw felt that had congressman radcliff was treated very unfairly. He's just too good. He doesn't deserve it trump blaming the media but the truth is that Republican Republican Senators had serious concerns about Ratcliffe Qualifications G._O._P.. Leadership never came out to support his nomination G._O._P.. Members called the trump White House to express express their concerns because it wasn't qualifications that got ratcliffe the nomination it was ratcliffe impassioned defense of President Trump in the muller hearing Americans need to know this as they listen to the Democrats and Socialists on the other side of the aisle as they do dramatic readings from this report the volume two of this report was not authorized under the law to be written. It's all part of what one G._O._P.. Source Tonight calls trump's S. H.. I. Blank Show and that's a quote. According to the source Republicans are all tired of trying to defend the S. H.. I. Blank Show another part that show today trump loading at the news that Congressman Elijah Cummings home was broken into the president's tweet quote really bad news exclamation point the Baltimore House of Elijah Cummings was robbed opt to bad this just days after the president's tweet rant against Cummings where you called Cummings a racist and called the Congressman's Baltimore district a disgusting ousting rat and rodent infested mess after the President's tweet about a gloating about Elijah Cummings of the break in at least one Republican stood up trump's former ambassador to the United United Nations Nikki Haley responding quote this is so unnecessary but other Republicans have clearly had enough to the only black Republican the House of Representatives announcing. He's leaving Congress will hurt a moderate Republican who opposed the wall by the way he represented the longest stretch of border. Here's trump. I don't know congressman heard but I've heard he's done a good job. We different certain subjects trump may not know heard well but Republicans know trump heard is the eighth republican to say he's not running for re election the sixth to do so in just the past two weeks. Pamela Brown is out upfront the White House tonight and Pamela. What more are you learning about Ratcliffe and this you know president was full steam ahead and now <hes> boom? It's over boom. It's over and I've spoken to administration sources today Aaron expressing concern once again about the vetting process here at the White House or lack thereof a source familiar the process saying that president trump selection of Congressman Ratcliffe came without ample vetting and that his performance last week during the Robert Muller hearing sealed the deal for him one source telling me Aaron the White House is known for weeks that codes would be replaced and that there's no excuse for a lack of vetting force in a typical administration a thorough vetting would be done and White House officials would be designated to defend the president's pick. It's worse to say Republicans have made their concerns about rackliff known to the White House this week his lack of national security experience spirit the exaggeration of his resume brought to light and news reports and that the pick of political loyalist who was questioned the intelligence community's role in the restaurant probe could be problematic automatic. Well trump defended his pick all week and eventually became clear to him. I'm told that ratcliff would run into issues too. Many issues getting confirmed. Even though publicly the president is pinning the blame on the media as you know we'll also say and he needs the media's help to <hes> to vet but you know what's interesting here is. I'm told that the president hasn't some been concerned about rackliff lack of qualification because he wanted someone in the role who he melds with personality wise. That was something you never felt like he had with Dan Coats but tonight he's back to the drawing board Saint Hill nominate someone else perhaps as soon as Monday Aaron. Thank you very much Pamela Brown of course that was the the president blaming the media and then saying I need you guys you know. Oh you save us a lot of money. If you do the vetting for me how tonight Democratic Congressman Rogachova he's a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and I appreciate your time congressman is always so so do you applaud your Republican colleagues in the Senate <hes> because they did <hes> stop this they stood up against president trump's nomination of congressman ratcliffe deny yeah I think it it gets to the point that I think this necessity is both a reaction to what trump is doing and and to the fact that continues to send nominees not only not qualified but quite frankly already tainted coming into the process and I think it's become a political necessity for the leadership in the Senate to begin to reject push back and deny those confirmations <hes> because like it or not you know the American public is watching and watching this this trail of nominees that once they come into positions and they are approved by the Senate <hes> turn out to be merely habit handmaidens at least in resources e._p._a.. HANDMAID's for for the industry and <hes> I <hes> I think be more of a political necessity than than a real find of conscious at this point political interesting okay so that's how you see it. Let me let me just ask you though in the context of as I said you know the the the G._O._p.. Fundraiser telling US <hes> the Republicans are tired of defending what they see as the president's <hes> expletive <hes> show Nikki Nikki Haley the president's former U._N.. Ambassador today and by the way she left on great terms with the president she called him out for that tweet about a break in at Elijah Cummings home <hes> she she wrote. This is unnecessary. <hes> you know when the president said I heard homes rob too bad exclamation point. Kellyanne Conway slammed back at Haley's tweet saying this this is unnecessary. What do you make of Haley and what she did? I I'm glad she did that. I really GAM she's. She's a national profile Republican leader with with discussions about what her future will be in terms of her continuing her political life hyphen continue to to move upwards at the the fact remains that I think will hopefully hopefully enriching tip tipping point and congressman heard was was a good congressman and worked hard and tried to work across the aisle with Democrats. We've worked together on pieces of legislation that affected his district and other parts of of of Texas. The fact is I think we reached a tipping point the bigotry and racism and the attacks coming all associated with that at some point point at some point the Republicans have to understand that they are marginalizing themselves politically in this nation so let's say changes and himself to do not exist in party congressman you say tipping point. Obviously there's been eight Republicans. WHO've said they're not running for re election heard is the sixth to do so in just the past two weeks have have you discussed with any of your Republican colleagues why what their reasons are then? There's sort of private way for saying they're done it. In a very private way is that they don't feel that they're legislating anymore. They feel quite frankly that their ability to get things done to work on compromises on some level of bipartisanship has been lost and that the unpredictable the unpredictability and and the kind of rash decision making that's coming out of the administration and trump all puts them in a very vulnerable position to get their job done number one and number number two the other point is we don't know what's going to happen next and politically this is starting. This is going to be an anchor for us as we go forward and many decide that it's it's not worth it in and to twenty two run for office having to carry as an Albatross this this trump legacy from the last four years so oh you you know you you have now passed the majority marker in terms of House Democrats calling for an impeachment inquiry right so you're at one hundred and eighteen out of two hundred and thirty five. Have you got over that line it just in the past day today House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still not there. This is a big moment but but I wanna be clear <hes> congressman you would need another hundred votes in the House to actually impeach the president in the House right. I mean once you go through presenting you would need more votes to get there is speaker Pelosi going to keep stalling until you get a lot closer to that number. I mean originally. She said you know I it appeared once. I was a majority in the caucus but now she could move the goalposts. Couldn't she well I I would I would hope that that we don't move the goalposts that this has been from beginning with fourteen of us to this point one hundred and eighteen people that feel that the impeachment inquiry is necessary in the next step forward. I would suggest suggests that that number is going to continue to grow and at some point our caucus will be overwhelmingly for moving forward. I think I think Nancy that's who will respond to that hundred that not if you look at it as that that there's one hundred more votes to get to an absolute majority in the entire House of Representatives right you think you're going to start to see a lot more people quickly getting on board because plenty of those Democrats who aren't on board with an inquiry are Democrats are moderate district's right they they don't WanNa ever be forced to vote on impeachment but but do you think you're going to go from one hundred eighteen in support of an inquiry and jump quickly higher. I think I think we're going contracting quickly as a relative term but I think very I think that number's going to continue to increase on a weekly basis and Says.

Donald Trump: John Ratcliffe withdrawing his name to be Director of National Intelligence

"A major about face tonight involving president trump and his choice to become the next director of national intelligence he had picked Texas Republican Congressman John Rackliff Dame just five days ago after his forceful defense of the president at the hearing with Robert Muller so what happened. Here's A._B._C.'s Kiro Phillips the White House Congressman. John Ratcliffe didn't even make it a week as president trump's choice for director of National Intelligence before the president pulled the plug they asked him. I said you want to go through this for two or three months or would you want me to maybe do something else and he thought about it. I said it's GONNA be rough. Ratcliffe nomination embattled from the start. The president picked him just four days after the congressman lashed into Robert Mueller. Donald Trump is not above the law. He's not but he damn sure shouldn't be below. The law Democrats called ratcliff partisan and unqualified president is more interested in getting a loyalist than someone who will speak truth to power Republicans grew concern as Ratcliffe's resume came under scrutiny A._B._C. News reporting the congressman falsely claimed to have prosecuted and convicted people funneling money to terrorists Republicans did express concern about reckless experience was. Is that a deciding factor no what I think you would have had very good support. I think he would have done fine but it would have been a long. It would have been a long hard slog president trump trauma withdrawn at least thirty eight nominees requiring Senate confirmation including his picks for Defense Secretary Labor Secretary V._A.. Secretary and U._N.. Ambassador today he defended the vetting process. The vetting process for the White House is very good but you're part of the vetting process you know I they give out the name to the press and they vet for me. We save a lot of money that way care Phillips with us live at the White House tonight incur- president trump telling you that he has a new shortlist for director of National Intelligence Diligence and he said there <hes> right there you hinted at this time the vetting process he believes will easier. That's right David.

"The exit at some point <hes> and this is the point that was chosen well. I mean we're seeing here. <hes> reports that when it came to the particular issue hugh of election security or or Russian interference that the president as you said did bristle quite <hes> quite frequently because coats was so vocal about it perhaps one of the most vocal <hes> in in the intelligence establishment right which you could argue you know as we've been debating. Why aren't we talking about the substance of what the Russian threat is that is part of Dan Coats job as the spy chief right to say when the intelligence has detected a threat that so critical that people need need to be warned about it and and snap into action and he deemed the Russian interference threat and other? That's to be to be that but as we've seen <hes> you know coats was probably possibly when the most vocal people in the administration about it but when other members of the administration have been pushed. It's very hard to find any of the cabinet secretary level people that have said Oh no. I don't think Russian interference is a thing. The president has kind of been on his own island in that he's the one who has consistently pushed back pushed back on actually putting all his cards on the table and saying yes this is a problem coach. This was just one of the most repeated and insistent people by virtue of his job really but of the many people on Trump's administration who've said no no this actually is really a problem that we have to take seriously well. The president said he says he's going to nominate Republican Congressman John Ratcliffe with of Texas <hes> to be the new director of National Intelligence. Now Representative Ratcliffe did have some pretty tense exchanges with Robert Muller last week during Mahler's testimony <hes> here's just a moment of that he when he grills the the former our special counsel about whether or not mother stayed in his lane regarding the purview of the special counsel respectfully director. You didn't follow the special counsel regulations. It clearly says write a confidential report about decisions reached nowhere in here. Does it say write a report about decisions that weren't reached. That's Republican Congressman John Ratcliffe of Texas just last week and he's referring to the fact that the special counsel didn't didn't come to a conclusion about obstruction of justice but but this has been fact checked pretty clearly in federal regulation say that quote at the conclusion of the special counsels work he or she shall provide the Attorney General with a confidential special report explaining the Prosecution or declaration decisions reached by the special counsel but but Carin demerging. What kind of <hes> of person is the president getting if Ratcliffe is confirmed as the new director of National Intelligence? I mean look Ratcliffe is a prosecutor by training. He's pretty skilled at sitting at the dice and pulling witnesses into these things his point two molar in that exchange was you've been saying Democrats because we're relying on the fact that you didn't exonerate him but it wasn't your job to exonerate him. He's innocent until proven guilty radcliffe though has been making this case for the G._O._p.. That lines up perfectly with what trump views that the special counsel's investigation either wasn't done correctly it was illegitimate. There should be more focus on Hillary Clinton. They should be looking more at the origins of the probe which would potentially undermine Muller's whole probe. He's been making these lines using legal arguments to do it. Trump has been in line with that trump has applauded that from the sidelines..

"Inside of a cold beltway and joined by Margaret Brennan, she'll be hosting face the nation on CBS on Sunday. And of course, the first four days this week. We're all about George H W Bush, but this morning is all about the president and the Muller problem. So what are you gonna do Marg? Well, brace yourself because I feel like it's going to be a crazy Friday. We know we've got these Muller filings happening later today, we should get some more information as to why Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman plea deal fell apart. Also what Michael Cohen the president's longtime attorney has actually been sharing with the special counsel. Remember, we've already seen him plead guilty to a number of different things, including lying to congress. But exactly how he's cooperating the special counsel is something we want to know more about we may get more detail on that. So there's a lot on the Russia front and clearly from the president's Twitter feed this morning, you can see it's already weighing on his mind because he's he's on the offensive already lashing out at the special counsel, and you know, rehashing some territory there saying he thinks this is all politically motivated. Now it also today, tether, new art who is the State Department spokesperson is the UN ambassador. I think that's a fine. Move to the great communicator. He has been quoted as maiming Bill bars AG. I'm not I think Bill bars are great conservative. But man, that's going to be a rough confirmation. Have. You got any early indication on how that will go over in the Senate. I think both nominees could face some tough confirmation. Now are right. She she is a known as a communicator, it appears at this point, she will not be cabinet level. So that would be downgrading of the job in some ways in terms of having foreign policy influence, which Nikki Haley had made part and parcel her agreement when she took that job originally about two years ago as for the potential AG. Stay tuned for that. Because CBS has been reporting that yes bar has been emerging as a top contender to become the new attorney general, he certainly a favorite of many congressional Republicans. But he's not final here. CBS is offering reporting Texas, congressman, John Ratcliffe, and Matt Whitaker may still be in the running to move from acting to a G. But of course, you raise the important question who can. Actually, get through congress. And I genuinely believe you need a federal judge. I told someone close to the president this week my favorite federal judges make a Wittig retired general counsel at Boeing, but you need a federal judge to get through this. And to be able to stare down anything that comes his or her way, Richard Haass, former P at the apartment of state just tweeted this Margaret Brennan in an instant Europe has gone from being the most stable region in the world to anything about Paris is burning Merckel era is ending Italy is playing a dangerous game of chicken with the Russia is carving up Ukraine and the UK is consumed by Brexit. History is resuming he might add they're riots in Germany today in Greece today. It is a the Brexit drama has transfixed me through the week of the funeral people have watched this. But yeah, it was a fight. They'd stop it. Will you have any time at all to take a look at Europe's folding up into a chair, actually? Yes, I've got I'm after actor Christine Lagarde, the managing director you remember? She was yes minister of France during the financial crisis and. Famously had urged unsuccessfully Hank Paulson to bail out Lehman or to not let it fail, which of course, ended up triggering a series of events that led us through some really tough times. He's gonna weigh in where we are right now, she's warning in age of anger, or at least at the beginning of one. She's calling from American leadership. I spoke to her earlier this week when she delivered the Kissinger addresses library of congress, I wanted to do so and she laid out really what was a call to action for the US to do once again, what he did back when it comes to create so many of these international institutions back at Bretton Woods when it helped create the UN we helped create the IMF step up right now because we need some common. What is very tumultuous marketplace. And like you're describing there a Europe that's going to a lot of growing pains as well. On the one hand the the election between K K dot com. Karen Bauer and merge. The. The old school. See Christian Democrat is is a calm affair Paris, though. If you woke up on Sunday morning and Paris has been convulsed by the fourth weekend of the yellow vests after the fuel taxes roll back that spells a cycle for monochrome, which is deadly. I mean, it will it will not stop. If it goes on after they've capitulated, a it's painful, the president put a little salt, and that wound earlier this week when he tweeted connecting this somehow to the Paris agreement saying, you know, because gas taxes went up or gas prices went up, and and France that that was the hardest Macron's problem, and obviously economic grievances are part of the yellow jackets protests, but. This convulsions their disability. In Germany does matter because it is the the growth engine for the rest of of Europe. So all of it. And in terms of leadership is going to matter. Christine Lagarde at the IMF, I know has has been calling here for people to rethink Brexit. Try to roll that back. She pointed me towards I guess a ruling in the UK argument legal argument that it can be reversed that maybe some wishful thinking because it seems like the politics and the divisions are head of that would be that would be contrary the British constitution. I cannot imagine them doing that. They could hold a second referendum that even getting that would be unconstitutional. Many people's I I think it's just going to be a hard crash out. And they'll make do I just note that Angela Merkel just received an eleven minute standing ovation is the sixty four year old leader of Germany stood in had recognized her fourteen year tenure at the top of the CD. You Margaret Brennan we'll be watching. On Sunday on face the nation. Thank you for joining me. I also wanna remind everyone out there.

"Now, Lisa page. Her infamy has been driven mostly by the Donald Trump. Text messages exchanged with fellow FBI agent of Paramore Peter Struck as the two of them engaged in an affair while getting the president for alleged election collusion with Russia. But John Solomon is reporting in the hill newspaper over the weekend. When history judges the former FBI lawyer years from now her most consequential pronouncement may not have been typed on her bureau issued Samsung smartphone to her colleague and her lover rather. It might be eight simple words, she uttered behind closed doors during a congressional interview a few weeks ago, and they are it's a reflection of us still not knowing that's what she told congressman John Ratcliffe. And what is she talking about? Well, the FBI had not made connecting Trump or his campaign to Russia's election meddling page on to say it still existed in the scope of a possibility that there could there will be literally nothing to connect Trump and Russian no matter what more or the BI did as far as may of two thousand seventeen we still couldn't answer the question. So here's the admission by a Justice department lawyer, they did not have. Any evidence of a crime being committed collusion is not a crime. They had no evidence of a crime being committed and yet they have gone through and cold in this special counsel anyway. So, but that's another bombshell admission from a lawyer in the Justice department, this whole thing, the deep state has been concocted. Well, I think what Muller's team is doing. And so far they don't have any kind of proof of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians in one way or another. If they did I'm sure it would have been leaked out a long time ago. So basically what they're doing is anybody who's at anything to do with President Trump in the lead up to his elected election to office. The whether whether it's it's almost like guilt by association of the words, if you're if you're associated with Trump in one way or another like, George popadopoulos. Paul Manafort who was the campaign manager for about four months or so if they can get something on these people, then basically it as far as the public is concerned. At least one side of the public who wants to see Trump out of office to begin with if they can continue down this road. It just makes these people think that there is some kind of collusion that went on with Trump only because all these other people are being indicted in unrelated charges. Now, the fact that the they're the they're associated with Trump though, kind of paint him as being involved himself. Now, there's there's the political ramifications of this ever since these indictments were handed down the guilty plea deals with Michael Cohen. And now the metaphor Trump's approval ratings have dropped for simply President Trump's approval ratings. And and this is the this constant drip, drip, drip, drip, drip again. And that's the whole ideas you bring those approval ratings down before the midterm elections. Then they may pick up more seats if seven twenty it's time for Kim commando and her consumer tech update this coming Thursday September twentieth. Almost all Americans will get the same tax message from President Trump, and you can't opt out or turn off message. Either Kim commander with your Monday. Consumer tech update any event of a national emergency. The government used to send out messages on radio and television, but times has certainly changed. But one thing's for sure we're all carrying cell phones. Now. So this Thursday marks the first time that FEMA and the FCC will push out a presidential alert.
