Whats In a Name, Image, and Likeness? Social Media and College Athletes
"David is sunday there. Games going on all around us. How is your bracket doing you know. I thought i was doing so badly. I didn't even check yesterday until this morning. And i looked. And i was in third place in my in my pool and i don't know how that happened. I can only assume that. Winning a war of attrition here is my is my assumption. David hale covers college sports from charlotte north carolina and his latest report on the future of athletes name image and likeness. Rules is on. Espn dot com yet. David you're the right person to talk to. You are ranked third in your group. I am currently looking at. Espn dot com right now. Ranked ten million two hundred twelve thousand six hundred and forty second to the country. Which is you know not great. Look you're a mere two hundred change thousand away from being in the top ten million and i think that's something to be quite proud of. I will settle for a goal like that after the weekend that i've had picking this bracket but david one of the stories. That's been so inextricable from the brackets has been your reporting college athletes and this whole universe of rules and regulations that are known as name image and likeness so alongside all these great games. That were watching. We've also been seeing this social media phenomenon. Basically was hashtag called not ncwa property. Can you tell us the meaning behind that. Yeah this is in some ways. The next generation of some of the conversations that we saw on social media over the summer last year about a social justice about we want to play. Athletes are really learning that they have leverage via social media. And what they're leveraging right now is the immense amount of attention that is on the ncaa tournament in women's to sell the message they want name image and likeness rights but what this essentially would allow is for players to profit off of their name image and likeness which means they could do an endorsement. They could do a tv commercial. They could be an influence or on social media and get paid for it. They could go to their hometown and host a basketball camp for youth in that area and make money from it. All of this should seem very reasonable because if you are a education major and you want to have a side business tutoring in college. You can do that if you are on a music scholarship and you want to piano concert and get paid for it. You can do that. But if you're a walk on not even on scholarship playing athletics at the aa level and you want to do anything to make money with your name. Image likeness using your skillset. You're out of luck.

"Up next in south carolina. Hey randy hey paul. How you doing buddy paul. I gotta say the guy or ohio was a couple guys short of a bag. Thank things states. Going to be clemson. Pau watch your show all the time. A long time Long time clemson fan. I'm calling to get your take on on sugar. Bowl tend to agree with you. I think a pure grain alcohol will do a lot of things to your football acumen. I don't think this is a blowout game. But i do think clemson. With all the faults that david hale laid out. It's still going to win this game. I just. I'm underwhelmed by everything. I've seen from ohio state this year. They're a good team. They they they do rise above a lot of other schools but to me their body. Work is not great. No it's not. It's not their fault to. And i think that their schedule is actually hurt them. Yeah lots of games played. I agree. I hadn't hadn't headphones come together paul. No and it's been. I think when you stop and start like they in others have and you don't play for a couple of weeks it does affect your timing. Hey thank you for the call. Appreciate it. troy in indiana. Hey troy how you doing paul. We're doing great. I wanted to cottrell opinion on the liberty flames with their huge win at curebowl. And see where you think they're gonna come in and the rankings. I think they should come in close to the top ten we have for. I realized you were not with us yesterday because of conflicts but we had she freeze on monday and he was great and i mean the only loss liberty had was what a last second was at virginia tech. I'm trying to remember which game it was or nc state. I can't remember but they had a phenomenal season. They beat some really good schools. From i think the tech they beat syracuse may have lost. Nc state and they won that game against coastal which was a really really good program. And i would put them depending on how everything shakes up a right around the top ten. Thank you for the call and really do appreciate it. Let's keep going here and todd is up next in georgia. Hey todd hey. Mr mom hope you're doing well hope you and your whole crew had a good christmas happy new year to you. We did a the reason. I wanted to call i. Well first of all Say roll tide and buckeye. We would love to have. It's somehow y'all make it past clemson. Paul concerning the playoff picture. You know down the road. Scenario that i've thought about something that definitely want to get your input on. Do you think that you know in a regular normal Season where you know. Each team is playing twelve games. Eight of which are conference and of course he got the four non-conference normally most of the power. Fives open up with with a major non conference opponent. You know even if they were to take one of those other non conference games just one of and and add you know a a stronger opponent from seeing another power five conference or you know say like cincinnati playing tough. Acc team or something on those lines. I believe that would go a long way to of settling the the What does become mayhem you know. With regard to the to choosing the final four it goes to eighteen scenario down the road. I think it can be settled during the season by virtue of the fact that okay. We're we're deciding. We're playing an additional Non conference opponents. You know that. That's i don't know if he would say more worthy or or just Just a stronger opponent. but what do you think. Oh yeah and thank you for the call. I for everyone who wants to expand the playoff in that includes pretty much. Everyone think about what this year would have looked like and it's not going to be expanded to allow the best teams in the country. That's not the way it will work work. This way all five power all of the five power fives while get in. So that would include oklahoma and oregon texas a and m. would have gotten in their cincinnati would have gotten there. There would have been one group of five so that's really what it would look like and i'm not sure it would have been significantly better. Let's go to al who is up next. Hey l. paul. Thanks for taking my call. Great great a sort of a question. I've been talking about for a while about the playoffs You know everybody's tired of seeing the same poor taste and yeah yada. What if the The football team had like a secondary tournament. Like the nit. Does we've got the top four and they're going to be in the playoffs but then the others are random. Alison interesting question. But i really don't think it would work. Because i think the liberties don't wanna play for a a participation trophy the nit doesn't mean anything unless Forget we didn't have an it last year. But does anyone really ever remember wins the nit including the team that won it. It's an insider's thing but most people don't really care and it would. It would matter even less football. So what if we gave cincinnati a trophy for winning group of five is that i don't think that's that's what that's why you play. Football go to cincinnati. You think you're good. You were disrespected by ohio state or kentucky or somebody and you went there. Improved your point. Anyway i appreciate The suggestion but nothing. I don't think we're ever going to see that unless they break away from the power five. We're up against the break. We hope you'll stick around. We have rushed dellinger a little bit later on. We're going to get an update on what's happening in florida with dan. Mullen getting a show causing a number of opt-out including the four top wide receivers for the cotton ball. We hope you'll stick around back great to have all of you here on a tuesday afternoon. I know we have a lotta arkansas fans watching looking.
The Legend of Coach O
"Why this much emotion coach such a big game? They beat US eight years. I got tired of your no so I mean it was time I told the team tonight. We taught allied. If you follow college football you probably know that voice. He belongs to a guy who's loud road tough in might be more suited for his job than anyone in America. LSU head coach at Oberlin today ahead of Monday's national championship game against Clemson. We tell the story of a man who seems like he was built in a lab to coach football in Louisiana and why despite that. It's actually surprising that he ended up there at all times. It's Friday January tenth this is espn daily presented by Dell Small Business David. How's it going is going quite it will mean a thank you for having me David Hale writes about college football for ESPN so your story is about coach? Ed Osea Ron really the legend coach. But I want to start by talking to you about perhaps his most noteworthy characteristic which is of course his boy to get to where you wanna go see like you have to go undefeated you have to beat Alabama you have to keep on going and then you have to win Sec Championship then you got football playoff oilfield so if you start thinking about my favorite thing in the World David is being in a room and watching someone here at for the first time because because it really never fails to shock. Anyone who's hearing we knew was going to win that game. Today we started Monday. NO-GO windows gape go. Don't you want to write his autobiography. Just so he can also do the voice over work. What's on the menu at the odor on household today? What are we got cocoa? My mom made a special gumbel but it was on. We'd better win the game. It would just be so wonderful. One of his first jobs was at Arkansas. As assistant strength coach the players there thought he was pranking them they. They didn't think that anyone actually talks that way. And they couldn't make heads or tails of what he was saying. Either it was. He's just he would get excited and start saying things with this gravelly Cajun accent and then he pointing the direction and they would just go do whatever was in that direction because they had no idea what he he was saying but he was saying it loud enough that they were afraid of him and it was only after like he'd been on the job for a month or two that they were like. Well I you know he's kept us up a long time. I guess that is his voice. We love the voice. Everyone does now but it at times says constant now. Yeah he's coached in some places that are not Louisiana. Yeah everybody talks about how he is Phyllis you but he was in Miami he was in Syracuse. He was in USC and and his last stint in USC he came on to replace place Lane Kiffin as the interim coach there had some success at USC. And I think there were folks there who would have loved to have given him the fulltime job because he had that success. But there were also folks Has Been reported by numerous folks I think including Bruce Feldman that the voice was one of the reasons you couldn't hire him as US's sees coach because you're the voice of the program. You're the face of the program you're the identity of the program and that's not USC right that's not La. Look at how he talks. He's not the model of USC so we can't hire them and there's a lot of folks at USC or probably kicking themselves for that exact thought process now. Well the voice is a perfect fit for Lsu else you I mean just about everything about co is a perfect fit for Lsu. It's almost like if you reverse engineered a coach based on Louisiana Anna Football. It would look sound and act like him and he's got roots right. In the state of Louisiana. He is from the Food Perish. It's bio country. Outside of New Orleans. His Dad grew bon shrimp boats ways just every bit the sort of central casting version of what we think of as Louisiana. You know if you've watched waterboy you kind of have a rough idea of what I think it owes runs. Background is one of the great anecdotes that his mom gave me. Okay so he was in second grade and broke his leg and the doctor fitted him for a cast. It went from foot all the way up to the upper thigh and he picked up some trudges out there and play football on crutches and about every week or so she would have to drag him back into the doctor's office to get fitted for a new cast because he would get it so dirty and muddy and mucked up from playing football in a full leg. CAST I'm sorry they let a second grader. Played football. I don't know that even let is the proper word there so much as he just went and did it So he kept playing in high school then college got to high school and he was a full grown man from day one one and he was a big guy and went to college as a defensive. LINEMAN ended up at Lsu for a year and hated it because for the first time in his life football ball was hard he was not having immediate success. He was not playing routinely He was being forced to go to classes. He wasn't super eager to go to and and he left. Lsu went back home and thought maybe that's the end of college football. And I'll go get a real by job like my dad and I'll go work on a shrimp boat and turns out. You may be surprised to learn that working on a shrimp boat is much less fun than in football And so I think that was you know when you talk to his mom that summer after he left. Lsu went back home to work. Real jobs was was a lot of ways sort of a turning point for coach. Oh and that he got a taste of what life is like when everything is not being handed to you to. How did he end back in football? He decided he needed to go play football again which meant he had to go back to college which was not really his favorite thing but he decided to go to northwest Louisiana State. That's where he finished his career and then went looking for football coaching jobs and the first job he could find was as a strength coach and soccer. Yeah shocker this. Like three hundred pound beast of a man finds a strength coaching job. And the job. Java's with Arkansas. Ken Hatfield to coach the time Ed walks in. And he's this beast of a man and he's got that voice and he's so excited and he's like I don't know if he can do this job but he sure looks the Bart's so we're going to hire them and tell you ended up getting into coaching. He worked at Arkansas for a little while and I think he really wanted to to do something. More than being the strength coach the ends up landing miraculously enough at the absolute heart of college football in the nineteen eighty s and early nineteen ninety S. Which is at the University of Miami? They celebrate a Miami the Hurricanes Complain and the coaching on the same staff. Tommytucker Ville tougher telling me they were. They went down to Key West on vacation. You want one year and they're in like this Nice restaurant having dinner and get the talking about football technique and overrun so excited about it. He likes slides tables out of the way and gets down the three point stance and he's trying to explain technique to to top Ville and he's like pushing tables and chairs out of the way and like diners are just looking over gawking. At what the heck is is this man doing your. But that's just sort of the approach that he brought and I think his time at Miami really offered him an opportunity to prove that ed behind that bluster and the Raspy gravelly cage invoice that there is a guy who really knows a heck of a lot about football. How did it go for him? In Miami off the field not great. He was someone who went out a lot. Drank drank a lot and the things that you could get away with when you're twenty northwestern Louisiana you don't get away with as a coach on the staff of one of the premier programs grams in college football. And so you know the story that really I think ended up up ending his career involved him being a bar. T was thrown out of the bar for being too intoxicated and he was not happy with that and ended up getting into a fight and legal proceedings. Happened in that essentially was the end of his time in Miami but I think it was also sort of a wakeup call for him so when he gets away from football ball it was a lot of ways probably very much like when he went back to work the shrimp boats after leaving. LSU Is that he kind of realized. This isn't the life that I want. This isn't who I WANNA be. I don't think that he shies away from those. Oh stories now. He's still shares them with current players in in the way of trying to relate to them and going through it and a lot of ways has probably been in what pushed him to turn things around and become the person that he is.

Yes she did and that would happen to her was was wrong I believe she should have been able to stay post and continue to do the outstanding work and what happened to her was wrong. That's right Mr Jordan and chairman Mis- MIS- Cooper who who of why. Why did the Office of Management and budget Put a hold on the phones sir. The only information that I received was from from the Office of Management and budget that they were operating at the direction of the president and they reported that he had concerns about corruption. That is all I knew. I put that in your testimony swelled. Thank you Mr Chairman Undersecretary. Hail I WANNA go back back to your support in affirmation of Ambassador Ivanovich what I understand by way. Thank you for that you know our military leaves nobody on no soldier on the battlefield and I think those who are in leadership positions in the State Department in our intelligence community. Have that bond of loyalty to each other. And it's very reassuring that you represent that you I as I understand. It got information about her situation. In March by early March Secretary Pompeo had mentioned that sometime sometime in the fall and received a letter from a former member of Congress with complaints about the ambassador correct and that rhetoric that member Congress was congressman sessions. And did you see that. There was any basis to the claims of disloyalty. No I did not that the secretary of State all right and you visited Keiv and you discussed in fact extending ambassador. Uganda term until To remain in her post right there was a personal idea of mine. Yes I obviously. Basically a indication that you valued her continued service there and you also stated Ukrainian press that ambassador. Ivanovich represents the president of the United States here in Ukraine in America stands behind her statements. Obviously trying to give her some public support correct correct in yet weeks later. The president and Mr Giuliani unleashed would can only be characterized as an ugly smear campaign to him by a two to oust her What was your reaction to the the news articles in late March in which up Ukrainian prosecutor attack the ambassador? Well we were concerned. We put out a statement that Some of these allegations around outright fabrication as they related to the do not prosecute list and we began to discuss what we could do to deal with this matter right and then the the problems continued for embassador Yvonna Vich and as I understand it she emailed you on March twenty fourth and indicated that quote the Temple of Social Media and other criticisms were such that she felt she could no longer function unless there was a strong statement of Defence of her from the debate State Department Is that correct correct and this message. What in Secretary Pompeo was aware of her situation? Is that correct. Yes debriefed and the next day. And he's the ultimate authority who could issue that strong statement of support correct correct but he never ever did issue a statement statement right. We Didata Shoe statement at that time but in fact you inside you testified around the same time that the secretary secretary did not render assistance to long serving in highly respected ambassador. He made two phone calls out terrific. Giuliani is that right. That's correct that he has seen a record that he made those phone calls one on March twenty eight and again the next day on March twenty twenty nine father record of that right so we don't know what he said to Rudy Giuliani. We have pretty good idea what really rudy. Giuliani said to him Get rid of the Ivanovich. She was gone in the statement. Never came forward right correct and when she was recalled in wanted to find out what what happened Secretary Paige would not meet with her. I was out of the country at the time. I can't comment on that. All right. What and then Mr Bill? Who is next in line? Didn't meet with her. I don't know this came for you to give the news. It went to the deputy secretary I believe held a meeting. I was info foreign travel. At the time. Well be interesting if he could have Secretary Palm Peyot be here to tell us what is conversations sations were with Rudy Giuliani. The person who was a F- amending the discontent about an ambassador who is fighting corruption. Malania Malania Miss Cooper was able to Put all the security system funds into contract before the end of the fiscal year. Now Sir and how much was were they not able to obligate What was left on August? I believe the figure was thirty. Five million it's and we were able to actually obligate eight percents total and I think you mentioned that you're able because of legislation. Congress passed continuing resolution to do that the rent so the remainder we are in the hospice of obligation right now because of the The provisions in the continuing resolution right so buffer literally inactive Congress. You couldn't have spent all the money if we had not received the provisions in the continuing resolution We would've Obligated eight percent but not the full amount right which of course would be a violation of law into not spend money. Congress appropriated Sir. I am not a lawyer but that is my understanding shore ambassador. Hail Miss Cooper. Thank you both for being with us. Just a quick question before I get into some questions about out embassador sunland who we heard from. Today I want to ask both of you. If President Trump withheld critical military aid from from Ukraine because high ranking officials support at the president's political opponent. Would you consider sitter that an official acceptable appropriate action by the president of the United States ambassador. Hail it's not I would. I would advise scooper that does not sound appropriate ambassador hail. You testified that you were aware Erin. Basset of Saban was in involving himself in matters. That and I quote went beyond the normal wit grit of the Of An ambassador to the European Union unquote as you understood it who authorized ambassador someone to work on Ukraine. I had no first-hand knowledge of that I received a readout from a meeting that the President United States had with delegation on May twenty third in which the briefing I received anyway indicated that the president wanted the members of that delegation which included Ambassador Sunland and to carry forth the policies that were discussed in the course of that meeting so that incurred in an meeting in the Oval Office on May Twenty. Third is where you heard that information from the readout of readout from that. Yes you testified that and I quote it was clear that the members of that inaugural delegation were empowered by the president is what you testified you also said and I quote as a practical matter Volcker and ambassador son and presumably working with Taylor who would be the ones really doing the continual effort here. Did you understand that ambassador. SUNLEN had direct access us to the president. I in the few occasions in which I had conversations embassador sonnen often would let it know that he was wasn't direct contact with the president. That's all I knew. So you receive that information directly from Ambassador Sunland that he had direct contact with the president in previous occasions. Yes not not related to this particular matter. Seventy thing about embassador Solomon's role that struck you as problematic. Based on what I knew at the time am I was satisfied that this delegation was what the president wanted to have continued to pursue these policies. And I saw all that in Bastrop. Oakland who was a professional had been a foreign service officer. Ambassador of distinction and steeped in Ukrainian affairs was part of that group. So so I had no great concerns so what you knew at the time you were okay with his role but did your opinion change about his the appropriateness of his role. As I testified I was not aware of these various activities related to negotiations over investigations. Preconditions related to that. I just wasn't aware of it so I had no reason to be making any kind of judgement one way. Or the other. And you review the text messages between ambassadors. Sean Lennon Volker. I've seen some of them were reported in the media. Were you surprised by anything. In those messages that you heard report it or personally witnessed or observed. I was surprised by what I saw. In those reports in the media. I want to ensure understand your testimony ambassador. Hail you you believed ambassador. Solomon was empowered by the president. According to what you found out from the May twenty third meeting to work on Ukraine policy and you said Ed quote none of that really struck you as problematic because of the time differences. There what you knew is that correct based on what I knew. Yes okay you are the Under Secretary for Political Affairs. You testified that and that capacity you are responsible for the management of the United States bilateral relations with and I quote every country in the world that we recognized for the management of our policies towards it's those countries as well as our relationship or policies as they relate to multi lateral organisations that include US policy and relations with Ukraine rang. It does but when we have a special envoy who reports directly to the secretary related to a country or issue that special envoy. We'll take the day to day responsibilities Cranston abilities about US policy relations with the European Union. Yes I am but you were not aware fully of ambassador. Facet of Solomon's activities on behalf of president trump. That's correct Krishnamurthy. Good evening thank you so much for being here. Undersecretary Hail You and your colleagues testified that you've gathered official records at the State Department with the understanding that they would be provided to Congress. Right I was not involved in the decision making. I have no responsibilities related to gathering documents. It's I understood that it was underway and I certainly received the documents that I described earlier. I see in terms of the materials is that were collected. Do they include electronic files and e-mails for instance. I can only speak to the documents that were made available to me. And it did include females and Paper documents and paper documents would tape recordings potentially be Among the files that are gathered. I really couldn't Speculate on that. But you can't rule out that possibility I don't I don't know tape recordings but I so I can't really comment on that and are you familiar with From whom the documents have been collected like the individual custodians. I don't know that Sir You're aware that despite a duly authorized congressional subpoenas been served on the State Department we have yet to receive even a single document correct. I understand that. Yes Miss Cooper in the interagency process Did anyone and in any committee potentially bring up the lack of allied funding as a reason for why there should a hold on military assistance to Ukraine. I can only speak to the three Meanings that I attended the PCC see see DSP and then P. C.. And I have no recollection of the issue of allied burden-sharing. Coming up at that point I did provide information in my deposition about a what I thought was a completely separate query that I received in mid June From the Secretary of Defense this is front office and one of the questions there Just asked a question about the degree to which allies contributing to Ukraine security assistance. Just to be very clear. Okay but after the hold was put in place on July eighteenth. You haven't heard any concerns about a lack of allied funding As a reason for why the whole should be in place in those meetings that I attended. I did not hear that or call hearing that as a reason. The only reason that I third was the president's views on corruption no further information. Got It. Same question do you Undersecretary Hill. Could you repeat the question so I assume you didn't hear about the lack of allied funding as a as a reason for the old budding being put in place after July eighteen. No I never heard a reason for the hold a AH I. I assume neither of you heard any reason whatsoever for why the whole was in place except for the fact that Oh mb put it in place at the direction of the President Right. That's that's correct and I assume you know one of my colleagues brought up the idea that the whole was put in place to assess whether or not presence Alinsky was login. Jin I assume that was not a a reason that was offered either. No Sir. I never heard that as a reason I heard. No reason. Undersecretary Undersecretary Hill. What is the importance of a world leader having a meeting at the White House? Well really case by case but Particularly for a new leader. It's an extremely important opportunity to demonstrate to strengthen our relationship for building that relationship at a personal level leadership level to demonstrate common goals. How about in the case of presents Alinsky How important was it for him to have this meeting at the White House was president trump? Well I never talked to present Zelinski about that myself. I met him before he became president. I met with President Porsche. SHANECO two leading candidates but As a expert on these matters is it fair to say that A new world leaders such as presence Alinsky having a meeting at the White House with President trump is extremely important for his image that he projects especially toward folks like Russia well in Oval Office meetings incredibly valuable for any foreign leader..

"Of that money thing no sir not to my knowledge instead. What happened was Oh and be device? An alternative solution involving creative footnotes to implement the whole and there came a time in August when the department offense no longer supported these unusual footnotes because of concerns that there might not be sufficient time for Dod to obligate the funds before before the end of the fiscal year in violation of the impoundment control. Act So despite the concerns mid August about the impoundment control lack and Owen B.'s. Footnotes footnotes the hold nevertheless continued through September eleventh. Even after now as an aside this is even after the whistle blower for had come forward right. It is correct that the hold was released on September. Eleventh yes Mr Ed V. It's it's being widely reported that Ukraine asked about the hold on military aid on July twenty fifth. That's not what I heard from. You are correct sir. My exact words were that one email said that the Ukrainian embassy and the House Foreign Affairs Committee are asking about Security Assistance Assistance Systems. Not hold and then the second email was the hill knows about the FM MEF situation to an extent and so does the Ukrainian embassy. Those are the exact words and what do Security Assistance and FM F- situation in these emails mean I don't want to speculate on what it means right. They don't necessarily mean hold.

"No not Undersecretary Hale testified that you had no direct knowledge of any Gina Ferris motivations to withhold aid to Ukraine correct correct. And to your knowledge. You testified that there were no strings attached to the aid correct correct. That's page one. Eighty four of your deposition no such knowledge and more specifically you testify that you had no knowledge of Ukraine aid being held up for investigations. Is that correct during the temporary hold of security assistance. This was until ambassador. Taylor sent you the cable you had never even heard words Barista or Biden correct well in the context of what we're discussing and you also testified that when you served as Zim Basler to Pakistan security systems was also held for their failure to conform to our concerns regarding terrorists and other issues on the Afghan Pakistan border correct. You testify that this review had been going on for quite a while and the administration did not WanNa Take Jacob business as usual approach to foreign assistance of feeling that once a country has received a certain assistance package. It's something that continues forever and you continued. The program had to be evaluated that they were actually worthy beneficiaries of our assistance that our program made sense that we avoid nation building strategies. He's in that we provide assistance to countries. That are that are lost in terms of our policy to our adversaries that correct. That's correct and you testified. Hi that you warmly. Welcomed this assistance review for it was just well. It's your testimony. Now that after an employee came forward to you you you believe you have some evidence that the Ukrainians I inquired about security assistance to someone in your office on July twenty. Five of this year is that right. That's correct July. Twenty five is also the day that president trump officially talked presence. Alinsky where investigations of the Biden's brought up is that right so riley what has been reported that publicly on this and that was reported is that right that's correct second this president as a champion of anti-corruption. Your testimony today is that on May twenty three you certified. That is far as it related to your duties. Ukraine had met the corruption concerns for the aid to be released. Is that right. So the Defense Dance Department certified and after that date inexplicably the president of the United States puts a hold on security assistance. Is that right. That was what I heard in July. Yes now this anti-corruption president who care so much about rooting out corruption and Ukraine. Did he ever call you after he. Put the whole to say Ms Cooper. What's going on in Ukraine? No Sir Ambassador Hell did he ever call you to ask about an update on Ukraine corruption. Option to your knowledge ever call your boss Secretary Pompeo. I don't know Ms Cooper. Did he ever call the many bosses that you've had at the department. The defense secretaries are acting secretaries. I don't know Sir now. As to the justification the justification is that the Obama administration only provided blankets so the Ukrainians should be grateful even after being shaken down that the trump administration provided more. But the truth truth. Miss Cooper is that under the Obama Administration and the European Reassurance Initiative one hundred seventy five million dollars were provided from. US taxpayer dollars to the Ukrainians. That right sir. I don't have data figure the figure that we typically use to say we've provided one point six billion dollars dollars to date but I don't have the breakdown in front of me. And the Obama Administration also trained five military battalions of the Ukrainians. Is that correct again. I don't have the the figures in front of me but yes. The training program began in the Obama Administration. And we did train. Many forces and under the Obama Administration founded Ukrainian security the assistance initiative provided to the Ukrainians Armored Humvees tactical drones night-vision devices.

"Is that correct is Cooper Cooper. Sir I am not a lawyer but that approximates my understanding of the provision of comic con with Dod Certification was not uh corruption writ large throughout the entire country of Ukraine. It was narrowly focused on defense institutional reforms and combat capability. Isn't that correctness cover. That's correct sir. So the certification in May didn't really speak to the broader concept of corruption throughout the rest of Ukraine that the president would be familiar with the Russia was will be familiar with sir. The May certification was specific to the defense sector defense industry and it did reference our friends the importance of civilian control of the military relates which relates more. Broadly to Robert like all of us would argue. None of us would argue that that fixes corruption throughout the rest of the country. Screw up or maybe shed some light on the specific details. We talk about this Security Assistance Program. Two hundred fifty million. Some would argue that because the pause is that people died in August. Because of the pause can you help us understand. Exactly what obligated and was there. Things that we're about to be delivered to your crane was Ukraine out of ammunition addition where they out of out of javelin out of all this stuff that because of this pause they didn't get a certain lethal equipment that they needed in order to protect their folks during the month of August. Sir We will deliver all of the Shraga Times it. It there was no shortfall In equipment delivery is That were expected within that timeframe. Obligate means that you're putting the funding on contract. Okay let's not trusting starting the process contrary fulfilled fourth quarter branch or whatever. It was sir I have to say I'm policy official I am not a contracting experts but my understanding is that we will be able to make up for lost time contracting prostitution. When did you actually find out about the hold on? The Ukraine assistant was July twenty first. Yes I in the deposition deposition that I did the closed hearing I misspoke. I was confused. Confused June twenty-first which was one win state for sent up to the congressional delegation. Oh and before clearance it was only after about July eighteen and I think the twenty-first is when I heard that there was a potential hole. Thank you for that clarification. Now did you attend on July. Twenty six deputies meeting Deputies Committee meeting that occurred yes I did was also your understanding that the president directed the whole. We were told in that meeting by the representative that they were objecting to proceeding with the assistance because the president had so directed acted Through the chief of Staff Acting Chief of staff. What was the State Department's position regarding the whole state? Department advocated as I did in that meeting for proceeding seating with all of the assistants consistent with our policies and interests in Ukraine. You believed what you said. You believed in the release of the whole yes. I did did anyone at the interagency meeting at the end of July support the home. Did anybody want the hold remain. And if so who. What Agency Agency only agents the only agency represented in the meeting that indicated that they supported the hold was oh? Mb Miss Cooper did did you understand similarly that there was an overwhelming interagency concern consensus to lift the hold and that. Oem Be the director show. The president was the only roadblock. Yes ma'am how is the security assistance in the national security interests of the United States. What is our interests? Explain that to my constituents in Alabama who are wondering why we should care about the security. The whole. That's on the security assistance. Yes ma'am this. Specific assistance helps build the capacity of the Ukrainian armed forces. And it's important to understand that that these are forces that are fighting to defend themselves against Russian aggression every day. It's an ongoing war. So they do need this equipment wittment To support their ability to defend themselves and I would say there's a larger issue here that relates to US policy on Russia. We we believe it's very important to strengthen the capacity of Ukraine in order to deter Russian aggression elsewhere around the world. Exactly were you ever able to get a reason why that hold was on. Did you ever get a reason. No Ma'am the only thing that I heard about it. But this his again you know second third hand was that the president was concerned about corruption. But that was all I ever heard so would you. Were you ever provided any additional information about the reason for the whole. No Ma'am I thank you. I yield the balance balance of my time to the chairman. Thank the gentlewoman My colleagues minority asked to Mister Hale. Listen Common Almond have holds on military aid and I think you said they're not unusual. Would you agree though that it would be very unusual to play a whole military aid in order to leverage a foreign country tree to get them to investigate a political opponent. Yes and I take it. You would agree that that would be completely inappropriate. That'd be inconsistent of the conduct of our foreign policy in general would also be wrong. Wouldn't it certainly not what I would do. This Carson Would you say that. Ukrainian forces were outmatched by Russia's military in critical ways absolutely are the Ukrainian forces now completely self-sufficient sufficient in your mind essentially in their ability to deter Russian aggression. Necessarily they have a long way to go Would you say that the Ukrainian armed forces now now compare now completely self-sufficient or how how much of an impact does the US need to have in terms of that deterrence and how critical was relationship between Ukraine in the US surly Ukrainians are on the right path to be able to Provide for their own security but they will still need U S and allied support for quite some time and they need that support in the form of tangible double assistance As well as a political and diplomatic support. So this question is to the both of you. Why was Russia's illegal annexation shen of Crimea so significant in your mind.

"Just in the past year. Correct Sir so Has Been made that president. Trump's Ukraine policy changed When there was a pause in the aid aid was withheld? Is that accurate statement. That was not the way I understood things to be happening at the time we were not given an explanation and in terms of our policy in terms of aid Ukraine. You've described it as very robust are a Ukraine. Yes as evidence by president. Trump's policy decision to provide lethal defensive weapons javelin Evelyn missiles it was very robust Yasser and that was a decision that president trump made a present the prior administration President Obama had not done lethal weapons had not been provided to Ukraine in the Obama administration correct. I was involved in Ukrainian affairs during the Obama Administration so I don't feel competent to address that and when Ukraine was put on pause. I believe you've testified that there may have been and concerned by Secretary Kent and by Ambassador Taylor that was contributing to a potentially negative effect on US Ukraine relations. Do you agree with that. Well the State Department position was to advocate for the continuation of that assistance As an important element in fact a key element of our strategy to support Russia at the support Ukraine against Russia. Times missed cooper our constitution. It's the Congress not the president that controls the power the purse correct. Yes Sir and the Security Assistant. That was the assistance that was authorized. To Ukraine was authorized and appropriated rated by the Congress. Correct yes sir. So Congress is also concerned about corruption at wants to ensure that American foreign assistance is spent wisely does not worse than corruption and so when Congress authorized this money it built in conditions just as Mr Ratcliffe suggested by Law Ukraine. Wouldn't get all the money until it demonstrated that it undertaken substantial anti-corruption reformed Ms Cooper under the law. The Department of Defense Works with the State Eight Department and other agencies to establish anti-corruption benchmarks in determine whether Ukraine has sufficiently met those benchmarks correct. That's that's correct that provision pertains to the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. And that's not that's a legally specified process that's not the president in the Oval Office manifesting testing a general skepticism of foreign aid right. That's a process it is It is a congressionally mandated process yesterday. So did that process take place lease for the DOD funding that was held up in July so the process that took place for the certification took place place prior to the May certification to the US Congress so by the time. President Trump froze the the department of Defense had spent weeks if not months determining that the Ukrainian government met every requirement in the law and made significant strides Ed's in combating corruption is correct as correctly made that determination in May now in my remaining thirty seconds. Just so that people understand what I referred to in the Nineteen Seventies Richard Nixon just arbitrarily decided. I don't know it was because he had a general skepticism of foreign aid or what his motives were. But Richard Nixon decided to hold hold up congressionally mandated aid and as a result Congress went to work and pass the impoundment control act of nineteen. Seventy four which prohibits hits the President from withholding congressionally appropriated funds without the approval of Congress for any reason..
