Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser

"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

"They have worked for four years to block the candidacy of Donald Trump to stop his election that failed. Then they wanted to overthrow his presidency, and every effort that they had made of any significance has been in that direction. To overthrow him. This is not just simply never trump is And this is not simply trump delusion. Send drop. These are Vimal. Evil people who mean toe work against the government of the United States to deny our heritage to deny our history into turn this country upside down so they can create a new country. We have 47 days. Lou Dobbs until the next election. How do you see this? Playing out? Because Because here, but I want to say this before you tell me. Sure. My attitude is you gotta you gotta play this like your six points down. You have two minutes left in the game. You have no time out. You're on your own 20. You gotta march down the field 80 yards across the plain kicked the extra point. That's the only way you're gonna win. That's how that's the urgency you need in this campaign. In my view. How do you see it playing out? I think the urgency is absolutely right, John. I mean, the Horowitz report took forever and I'll tell you who I'm blaming at this point is John Duram. You know, Harwood should not have taken that long at 600 employees. Duram has an army of employees and it should never have taken this long, especially the the evidence the low hanging fruit. Of evidence that's overwhelming and incontrovertible. What you and I know John John Solomon. Other intrepid journalists have handed Devin Nunes. They've all handed John Durham and Bill Bill Bar this thing on the on a platter. They didn't need a year and act you and I both know that this is Justice Department is where Truth has gone to D O die for years now, thanks to Barack Obama, but it hasn't changed under this president and this attorney general. And that is what he is running against right now is a a deep state, a inter agency, a permanent bureaucracy. That insists on controlling government and they are they still have sufficient control that they can deny on investigation of the greatest political scandal in this country's history. The attempted overthrow President Trump and I, By the way, How do I think this is going to play out? I think the American people are now wise to it, and I think he is going to win and I think he will win big. Listen from your lips glued to God's ears. I will tell you, I do think this president has an army behind him. I think the enthusiasm is there. I don't think he's the president that you can pull accurately. You see the people? I mean, look at the people of Wisconsin. They've been camped out for days. It's like they're tailgating at a football game and having the time of their life and people are engaged in their passion, and I don't know anybody passionate about Joe Biden, you know, and I love the fact the other day he's waving it at an empty tarmac. To the cornfield round. It was a cornfield. Lou and Joe Biden shows up for a motorcade and their three cars in it. They're going to have a parade for her three cars. That's that's the level of intensity that actually that I think there was a total of 20 to be fair, But, you know, listen, let's not quibble over the amount of cars you see. But look, look at the boat parades that the boat parade that has thousands of boats just spontaneously. Seemingly just, you know happened and all over Florida, South Carolina all over the country. All over the country. So you really think your level of confidence that he gets reelected is what high very high. The American people aren't dumb enough to put a person who can. Who knows neither where he is. Nor where he's going into the Oval Office. The Democrat should be ashamed in the sounds and the American people are about to explain Tomo to the Democratic Party that they will not be insulted by such a number of jobs. I don't know. Maybe it's an Irish thing, but I just I'm always waiting for the next bomb to drop on my head in life. And I just until I hear the words we can now project Donald J.

DOJ appeals ruling preventing it from replacing Trump in E. Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit

"A judge's refusal to let the United States replace President Donald Trump as the defendant and a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who says Trump raped her in the 19 nineties. Department attorneys notified US District Judge Lewis Kaplan of its plans today to ask the second U. S Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan to consider the judge's decision. Judge Kaplan concluded last month and a written decision That Trump's June 19th statements about columnists aging Carol did not constitute an official act of the presidency and we're outside the scope of his employment. This president Substituting for the United States for Trump would leave taxpayers responsible for any possible payout in the case. Carroll's attorney, Roberta Kaplan, said in the statement that the Justice Department appeal was not a surprise because from the start of the case, she said Donald Trump's number one goal has been to avoid discovery and cause delay. She said. It remains to be seen if the new attorney general will agree that Trump was acting within the scope of his employment is president when he defamed her client. Justice Department attorneys say as president Trump had to respond in June of last year to accusations Carol made against him and a book because the claims related to his fitness for office. Carol has said Trump raped her and a luxury department store dressing room a quarter of a century ago after they randomly crossed path and engaged in a conversation. Trump said Carol was totally lying to fell a memoir and that he'd never even met her. Although the 1987 photo shows them and their then spouses at a social event, Trump said the photo captured a moment when he was just standing in a line.

What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?

"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting. We fight to. We win knowing that the victory is certain. And that's what they dickens would always say and as i want more national from new york activism. He said you still fighting. Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this.

GSA designates Joe Biden "apparent winner," enabling official transition

"And so more than two weeks after the major networks declared Joe Biden, the winner of the presidential election, Emily Murphy finally did what she should have done back on November 7th when Biden's victory became apparent. Now. Emily Murphy is a heretofore unknown federal government employee who is the head of the General Services Administration. It is her job to sign off on Biden's win, which allows the presidential transition to officially begin. It permits current Trump Administration agency officials to coordinate with the incoming Biden team and provides millions of dollars in government funding for the transition. If you've listened to the Ron Owens report in recent weeks, you know I was not in Emily Murphy side when it came there doing her one big job. It doesn't seem that difficult aspect. She said she needed only to ascertain that Biden is the apparent winner of the election. And yet somehow she delayed it up until yesterday, forcing hundreds of people joining the new Biden administration to work without government paid assistance. Hmm. That sounds very trump here. I mean, seriously. Despite Biden's clear victory, she stalled in her letter, finally initiating the formal transition process. Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the transition and did not make a decision out of fear or favoritism. She wrote, And I quote, please. No, I came to my decision independently based on the law and available fax. Yeah, of course she did. She's neutrals sort of. I mean, she was appointed by President Trump and unsuccessfully tried to be on his transition team in 2016. And every day she delayed making the obvious choice made it more difficult for Joe Biden to put his people in place and work towards a smooth transition to the new administration. In effect, she allowed the delay to possibly be used by enemies of the United States like Russia, who thrive on making countries chaotic. Bottom line. I don't believe her, but at least now her 15 minutes are up. As for Trump Well, he tweeted now that he's not conceding and plans to move full speed ahead with his various legal cases challenging what he calls the most corrupt election in American political history. So we continue to witness the torture. It's vindictive, classless strategy of the president, making his successor's job more difficult from day one. It's almost criminal. Will Rogers sure never met Donald Trump. I admit I'm still enjoying the pain look of Trump. It makes you wonder. Could he actually believe that he won, Huh? Come on, man. No, but the way he's not carrying himself might make future government officials and everyday bosses think twice before surrounding themselves with sick of fence. Is there any doubt that in speaking with foreign leaders who called him out of obligation, he did all he could to poison the water for Biden, his scorched earth way of handling defeat. Go down in history as the classic example of hubris and Pettiness. I'll be watching with great interest how true Republican senators in Congress members deal with him. Now they no longer will have the power to directly make their lives miserable. A few weeks ago, I was pretty convinced that Trump would keep the GOP in this corner for the next four years by offering daily critiques of anything Biden does. I hope the media would wake up and see how they've been consistently manipulated by Trump and punish him by not reporting every word he speaks. Now, though, you know last week or so I'm watching some of the Republican senators who repeated his Bs open up a bit. And veteran Watergate reporter called. Bernstein has now released a list of 21 Republican senators who in private, have repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump and his fitness for office. Maybe by 2024. His own party might reject his bed for a rematch. Meanwhile, is the first round of Biden administration nominations a release. It's clear that by this choosing people who are indisputably X Spurs in their fields over bigger names and democratic politics. There'll be very little on the job training needed for senior members of Biden's White House, as CNN reported. The simple act of hiring people qualify for their jobs is in itself a rejection of the Trump model, which installed donors, right wing ideologues and inexperienced allies into positions of power in some instances, The express purpose of undermining the institutions they were meant to lead, so we'll find ourselves with a very competent yet a times boring new president and a faceless cabinet. After all we've been through these last four years. Doesn't that sound

Julin Castro, a 2020 presidential contender, on why Joe Biden beat him and Trump

"Secretary hulan castro. Thank you very much for coming on the podcast with you before we get to the topic that we are here to talk about what i wanted to talk about. You want to talk about. And that is the latino vote in twenty twenty. We gotta talk about the biden transition and what you're in for. Do you wanna go back into a presidential administration. But that's his decision. Of course it's his decision. Yeah but. I've said that i'm open to that. I haven't taken anything off the table. Have anything on the table. I haven't had any conversations with the transition team with with the president-elect about that. But the thing that i do know and i can tell already from the names that have been put out there for different positions. Is that the team. He's assembling spectacular one. And it's going to be so much more competent effective than what we've seen over the last four years it goes without saying you know for years ago. Donald trump promised everybody that he would surround himself with the best people and then couldn't be that could have been further from the truth. Joe biden is actually surrounding himself with some of this people out there. Whether it's the folks were up for treasury or a g or any number physicians. And so whether i'm part of that or not what. I have confidence in what matters most to people is that these are going to be very competent. Effective folks okay. I'm going to continue to put you on the spot. And in president obama's administration in the second term you were the secretary of housing and urban development. So let's just take that off the table. When i go back to to where you were before dream job dream scenario. Just forget that. Joe biden kamla. Harris are gonna be the next president vice president of the united states. What would be the dream job. In a presidential administration. I was running for president. Of course they make good people. I would do hampshire saw otherwise and rightly so in twenty. But yeah i mean. I'm going to leave all of those conversations to the transition team. That's uniquely decision. And so i feel like i'm going to continue to use my voice in any way that i can on the issues and the vision that i pressed forward in the presidential campaign. A lot of that vision is shared. I think with adults Biden and vice president-elect terrorists but was find a way to serve anyway. I can't even if it's only in according break candidates for office up down the ballot which i was happy to do in twenty twenty so transportation there Yeah there any of those roles for people that are interested in public service or great role all right and then i was only pressing on labor and transportation. And you didn't give me a chance to keep going down the list. Because i mean let's not forget. Therefore you ran for president. Before secretary of housing and urban development. You were a mayor. Yeah yeah you were the mayor of san antonio. So it's not. It's not out of the realm of the possible that those two agencies would be something of interest may be an ambassadorship. The world food program in rome. I mean there are lots of things but we'll just leave that alone. We'll leave it alone. I feel like that. This is an exciting time for a lot of people that want to surge. And we'll see what happens. I love pressing. You folks who are you know on the precipice of possibly joining the cabinet tried to watch you squirm but let's talk about something that you actually can talk about and want to talk about. And that is the latino. Vote in the twenty twenty election as i said before. I am fascinated by what happened. Talked to me from your perspective about what happened in the twenty twenty election. These the latino vote. Well overall the a latino vote was still a very important and impactful part of the democrat coalition and you could see that most notably in wins in arizona nevada. You did a community like georgia. You know where. There's been a growing latino community over the last decade or so so overall. Very positive the turnout. Rate among latinos was higher than it was in two thousand sixteen like it was for all other hurricanes so that was very positive. Obviously you also had some of these areas of the country where democrats did performed as well as i would have wanted them to or anybody would have wanted to. That was ruining for joe biden and democrats. I think of miami dade county for instance in florida. Yeah so let's go through each area so in miami dade county in florida. What were the dynamics. There that made the turn out on behalf of joe biden. Not what democrats hoped. it would be. Well you probably heard this term monolithic right more in the last two or three weeks two weeks since the election having last year

Why The Oil Industry Doesn't Fear Biden

"To learn more on the surface. The oil and gas industry is losing a friend on january twentieth. Donald trump the departing president gave fossil fuels his loud support. President-elect biden supports efforts against climate change yet. Some in the oil and gas industry are feeling cautiously optimistic. Npr's camille mosque. Explains why you might have heard that biden's win could mean the end of the oil industry. President trump warned it. Would some climate activists hoped it would and in the final debate biden himself said this transition from their own industry. Yes it is a big statement and that would be a big change over the last decade. Us oil and gas production has boomed. The shale revolution turned the united states into the world's top oil producer. A lot of that remarkable growth happened. During the obama administration and trump promoted the jobs in prophets that resulted but emissions from burning oil gas and coal are the biggest contributors to climate change. Which is already starting to have devastating effects around the world. So how could biden tackle those emissions step one might be a ban on new drilling on federal lands and private loans. It's a different story. They do not have the power to your sake. Somebody in south texas. You can of drill anymore. Rene santos's with snp global plattsburgh says that that kind of a ban would be significant but not the end of the industry is also expected to restore some environmental regulations. Which again won't eliminate all gas. The big question mark is what a climate bill look like her personal. Don't think it's going to be sensitive radical unless you know the more liberal side. All the democratic party gets a lot of influence which are so we see right now. It does not appear to be the case. Climate activists and scientists have called for ambitious action. That might be impossible to push through congress if republicans keep the senate so for now. This doesn't seem like a doomsday. Scenario for oil gas. I don't think it's a wholesale assault on the oil industry. It's just not going to be in favour like it was under president. Trump halima croft is a managing director at arby's see capital markets. She says the biden is serious about climate change but also doesn't plan to do away with fossil fuels. We actually wrote a note over the summer about the biden. Energy plan called hugging the mid line. Not just because. I left the ladas but we really did see this as an effort to sort of the neo. All the oil and gas industry sees room for some compromises and negotiations which might raise the question. What about biden's big statement about transitioning away from oil and gas jin. Snyder is a director at in virus. Which provides data's oil and gas companies. She says that was hardly breaking news. To insider's they know that a global transition happening a move away from fossil fuels is underway at the society level regardless of the administration biden also said quote. We're not getting rid of fossil fuels for a very long time. Snyder argues a president who manages a gradual shift. Away from oil might actually be better for business. The gut reaction is that this isn't good news for the industry but we're actually cautiously positive and politics aside right now. Oil producers are facing a more immediate struggle. The

What the Election Taught Us About the Latina Vote

"A majority of latino voters did vote for joe biden and comma harris. They played a critical role in states like arizona like nevada. The played in pennsylvania part of my theory of what happened. Is that because florida went. I what happened in miami dade set the narrative about let the nose around the country in the eyes of people who don't know our community is that well and we're providing a lot of that analysis and it then became a wave of headlines that took what was a part of the story. Because i think there are two story. There is both the truth. That latinos turned out in incredible numbers for democrats and the truth. Donald trump made inroads among some communities within the latino community. Both things can be true. They didn't weighted equally in the way that we talked about it. But i also think most of the national media is based on the east coast. So there's a tendency to see things through that lens. Miami comes in first. Miami is wear people tend to think of a power center of latinos. Being latinos in miami are much more powerful than latinos elsewhere. But then when you step back is your sanely. The majority of latino voters are actually not for out there. They're all over the southwest. they're also in the in. The rust belt made a difference not only in pennsylvania. I think also maybe even in wisconsin and we tend to forget about those places where we tend to gloss over them really easily and i do think a lot of that has to do based on where the national media is based. Let's talk about what did happen in arizona because that story provides such a narrative counterweight to what we saw happening in florida. Especially because it was a story ten years in the making you have to go back to senate bill ten seventy which was known as this. Show me your papers law and came at the same time period. Sheriff joe arpaio Huge anti immigrant sentiment within the government of arizona and all these young people some undocumented themselves some not took to the streets they did tons of protests and they started to organize there. Are i would say half a dozen organizations that came out of that era that now for people to vote in arizona knocked on doors to get people out to vote. Sorta sold the messaging to get people to vote not just for biden but for people down ballot. They were really trying to flip the state legislature and a lot of these organizations by the way are not big. Joe biden vans. I mean they like biden better than trump and they certainly wanted to get trump out of office but it was much more about getting trump out of office than voting for biting. It's what a lot of people have called a one time biting coalition that the group of people who voted this time joe biden or not going to be there in four years in the same formation because donald trump will not be on the ballot which means the democrats are gonna have to reconfigure a lot of their strategy while next. The florida story matters not for the national narrative this election but the fact that they were so off in what they thought was going to happen in florida from the democratic side that they lost so big to trump. I mean even those of us who were covering it at new. That trump was to do better than he added. Twenty sixteen in florida etc. The he did so much better than people thought with so many many more places that it was real devastating blow to the floor democratic party. In so that just reinforces your point that. Where does the party go from here. Because this was such a sort of unique set of circumstances. Nationally and in the st louis makes it look bleak for the future of democrats.

"Gordon Gordon. Silent and Bill Taylor testifying in in that Senate Chamber and continued to deny that something very wrong didn't happen I I from what I've seen has been taking this really seriously. All right I appreciate your time senator. Thanks very much for being with me. I know you just have a few more minutes and obviously you're going back into that room. Look AH my panel here. I have to crucial questions coming out of of the conversation. There was no murphy. First of all let me ask you this. What he just ended with that he thinks everyone's paying close attention and I did did point out? There have been some commentary about people dozing off and and again. I did not say that to be light. I said that to set up a series question but his point is maybe. The senators weren't paying close attention engine as we were watching this every day in the house. Maybe they hadn't seen all these full testimonies. Do you think it's possible that people in that room really were learning things about the time line about the phone call in Kiev. Is it possible they really did. SORTA go wow. I think it is possible and I follow this very closely. And there are certain aspects who the presentation evidence that I learned this notion of. Tell me specifically per agency what documents you're seeking to get. I know I've heard names like Mick Mulvaney. We've heard John Blair. We've I've heard about other people who they want to hear from but tell me specifically what you're hoping to Glean and what the testimony during the impeachment inquiry lead you to believe that documents existed assisted. Now make them at all. Come together in one. Easy package is what was missing in this and math. The actual story of the narrative. That's Morton in trying to make the documents. That's why the gate litigators field are so great at what they're doing. Because you have to actually make that compartmentalization make sense and here. You have per agency although it seems exhaustive to all of us to have an amendment that goes through painstakingly each particular aspect of it. It is setting. Say You wondered why we wanted information and well because Gordon Farmland said this bill Taylor that this health ed not just generally we want documents from the. It's this leads to this leads to this specific Taepodong exactly and we didn't have that till now and that is a way of learning that actually is very compelling. It's persuasive in maybe I opening So what do you make of the fact though that Senator Murphy also said he's not confident that he has those those votes Sir Susan Collins can say what she says. Lamar Alexander can say what she says. His conversations today in these breaks would indicate he is not confident. He has the Republican votes for witness. If if if I were a moderate Republican senator. I wouldn't tell Senator Murphy what I'm about to do. Because their argument is whether you accept it or not they want to hear the they want to hear from the managers. And they WANNA hear from the president's defenders and then they're going to make pick up their mind whether more materials is necessary if they were to tell Senator Murphy now that they were going to vote for witnesses then. That argument is bogus but I think some of them believe it and so I think Senator Murphy should wait and in next politically though. He's making a smart move right. You have the feeling of urgency agency. He does but but politically but I also think that he probably understands that those centers are not going to tell him. He's not number one on their call list to to tell when they've made up their mind that they're gonna go against Mitch McConnell. They're going to wait until there's all this information and there's real pressure and then they'll say Mitch or Senate whatever they call him to do this. I'm just going to have to do this. I'm sorry and you. You see those cracks. Yeah and I think what what Senator Murphy there was applying applying maximum pressure and. That's what today is these. Are Rules votes in the Senate and the House are generally party line. They generally get attention. They don't matter. It's reasonably reasonably easy for a Susan Collins or a Mitt Romney to say this is just the rules. Were Okay and we got our concessions but it's very rare in politics that you see you know the the the train moving in one direction at stop and move back it you know. If if even th- the pressure of last night and the news coverage forced Collins and Portman and others into McConnell's office saying that's a bad trend but I agree Also with everything that Maggie Haberman said before which just they feel like they can wrap this and hold these guys and the big thing is they will a book. They will have learned stuff but the questions doesn't matter if they know the case is terrible and they may still say. I'm with the president yet. Maggie they are preparing for witnesses. They're preparing for the possibility of witnesses and really the witness again that they're really concerned about somebody like a John Bolton who has appeared as a wildcard in a way that someone like Mick Mulvaney has not. They would be mistaken if they weren't preparing for the possibility that this could happen. One thing that they've been actually very clear eyed about despite Sort of more public sense of I wouldn't say bluster but but confidence they're very clear that this could end up going in a number of different directions that they're not predicting and so other preparing for it. All right and thank you all very much for being with me And if we anticipate obviously they're going to be heading back into that chamber to consider that Fourth Amendment momentarily.

"Well guess what the first time will be able to answer questions or ask questions or even look at the documents. According to Colin statement is after they've got twenty four hours from each item opening statements and then sixteen hours of questions and then they get to look at it. But there's no opportunity Zuni then ask more questions for follow up so what we the point of having verdict first trial next to paraphrase laurence tribe earlier today. If you actually want to deliberate and have have information wouldn't you want right now even if it might not go your way just to have it to either support your argument but trust the credibility of the witness is that may or may not show Auburn Com or even to have a leg to stand on. So so who do you think. Is the winner here today than Ryan. I mean obviously when this amendment is discussed as it. We'll be next right after this dinner break you're then going to have The Mick Mulvaney discussion and then they're gonNA extensively as we've seen with everything else table that amendment so you'll Republicans say they don't want to hear from Mick Mulvaney even though perhaps they do. Who is the winner? So I think the winner might be that the American public actually does get to hear from the witnesses that seems to be what's happening happening here. Yeah it seems real reflection on the pressure that's being placed on certain Republicans to do the right thing or do the thing that's their constituents want. CNN just had the poll in the last two days that it says sixty nine percent of Americans want there to be witnesses and a plurality of Republicans want there to be witnesses. I think that's really the variable. That's putting pressure for are there to be change until we've seen cracks emerge that we wouldn't have anticipated just twenty four hours ago. I WANNA bring in Maggie Haberman from New York Times Maggie as we. Have this break here this this we we anticipate it'll go till right around eight o'clock eastern Then they're gonNA come back and deliberate on whether Mick Mulvaney would-be subpoenaed At this point in the process what are you learning from your reporting. Look I I I think that I I agree that there are some cracks here and there are reasons to believe that there might be some movement but everyone I speak to around. The trump team still feels fairly confident that they are going to see see Republicans. Hold the line not go for witnesses. The again the main person the White House had been concerned about was Lamar Alexander. They they believe and they could be wrong to be clear. We have repeatedly seen the White House project certainty about something when it's not really clear but they believe this is going to move ahead without witnesses being called call if witnesses are called and say there is a discussion about subpoenaing John Bolton and having him come forward he is somebody who they've spent a lot of time focusing on how they would keep keep him from complying Mick Mulvaney. They're not concerned about He is already Talked about needing permission from the president. And that's how he handled the house. John Bolton has since said he would Comply with a Senate subpoena and so the concern of the White House. Is You have to go through a process of making sure that information that was privy to was classified and then go to court sort and so we already saw some discussions around court cases in the house. inquiry You would likely something similar here if it got to that point. What do you make of how that goes? Though at that. Point I mean is is something like privilege or immunity a something. That would be upheld in any serious way. Given that so much of what is being discussed is is already public right. So the idea that Bolton can come testify and then claiming executive privilege doesn't really work so well since we've already had his deputies present evidence the house so the idea that the president needs to maintain confidentiality. There's very communications have already been disclosed to the public. We now need to hear from the Horse's mouth. So John Bolton did you say it it was a drug deal John Bolton. Did you raise concerns with the legal team inside the National Security Council. That's a huge part of it so for them to be able to say no he can still refuse to actually answer specific civic questions. They're pretty weak position and There's a strong argument that the executive privilege idea doesn't survive in an impeachment hearing. Maybe it's advise as with regular congressional oversight but there's good arguments that the balance Congress is acting at the zenith of its power. Here is not the instance in which you can actually try to maintain. This evidence is confidential. The Laura what do you think I think that's absolutely right. The idea as well as interesting both both parties to trump's defense team and of course the house managers are making an argument about separation of power is being at the. We're maybe at the tail end unless it goes their way in terms of privilege or immunity issues and interesting to have both make that argument because if they are both right it would force witnesses to be there right. The only way to actually assert your oversight power only way to actually say yes. This person has done the wrong thing or has done. The right thing is for a witness to be called manage like they agree on this very fine point about the notion I've listened. There is no privilege that will protect you in general for criminal activity. There's no privileges says as long as you are the president no matter what conversation you've ever had is always protected and it depends on whether talking about Bolton talking to another member of a cabinet. It's not the president. Is that still covering the privilege. This is very novel and of course we do have a chief justice sitting right there who may be somebody to want to weigh in on this but his hands are tied in a way because if he does this now any case coming down the pipeline he will have shown his hand so if a catch twenty two. We're trying to navigate. I mean mean these are the big question Jocelyn. How was the performance today? Joe How would you say I mean obviously You know we we saw at Bologna. A lot of people had no idea what it's Baloney lights until today when the president's obviously chief defenders J. Secolo we saw again on behalf of the President Adam Schiff obviously taking the lead role and we just saw him here on this amendment about Oh oh mb recounting the phone. Call in between Gordon's online and the President Jason Crowe from Colorado Just made his first appearance. How would you say so far? The performance is come into these amendments. Well I think it's worth going back to nineteen ninety nine and comparing it because it's almost the opposite in in my mine. I think in one thousand nine hundred nine. The House impeachment manners did a pretty good job but they came off as very political. And I think you know chuck. Ruff the White House counsel David Kendall the president's personal turning on all of the lawyers there Won The day as far as the debate because they came off as factual it was like this is what the law is. This is what happened and we're just gonNA keep his that. The opposite happened today. I think the Democrats particularly the the manager so we hadn't seen so much from Jason Pro. Val demings Zoe lofgren. We're very very clear. And the only way I mean I think the chip was a little bit political But there are some points that need to be rebutted and I think that that is much different. I you know I. I told people today that if I'd been in the White House today I'd be underneath my desk in the fetal position. That's how poorly I think particularly jaysekulow. A cycle did They they feels like they took the memo from the House. Republicans and said. Oh Yeah we just scream and yell and say conspiracy and hoax ridiculous and breathtaking and we'll be fine. They've misread the senate. The Senate is very different than the house and people expected something different today. They didn't get it from those. The White House lawyers now again. I may be wrong. We may find a different conclusion. But I think that the president was let down today by and Maggie aggie. What's your feeling from talking to them? Obviously what they're gonNA say. It may be perhaps different than what they feel. But what are you read between the lines. They've stuck pretty much to the playbook that they telegraphed they were going to do. Going into this We haven't heard yet what the president's reaction has been catching up to all of this. He's in Davos right now And he always weighs in on how his team performs on television. I'm sure he'll have lots of things to say whether it's private or He tweets something about it but they actually feel pretty good about how they handled today. Because the thing as as I was listening to Joe Talk I think that in previous iterations of history You would have people who would be unwilling to go out and say that something. Nothing had happened Something happened that didn't happen as you saw repeatedly from the president's lawyers today and then you would feel bad about it afterwards but when you are the president's lawyers and you're walking into this and you are ah basically of the belief is a foregone conclusion we're gonNA find out whether they misread the senate or not but they believe that this has been stacked in a way that favors them mm-hmm temp. Well Val demings talking about well demings per minute. Remember that most of these senators are look how impeach matters most of these centers are lawyers and she explained what we what we the American people need to know and it is very hard art when you go document by document to think that this is a that this has some kind fishing expedition to make these grand statements about. It's a witch hunt. It's a fishing expedition when she took she brought it down to the document level and each of these demands was reasonable. There's an advantage that the Democrat. That did that. The house managers have gotten today. They had a chance to preview their prosecutorial briefs today right and this is not the open history may have felt that way to some people. Why don't you but that is not not what it was and I think that this is important for the senators? Even more of the American people one of the things I think it's true in one thousand nine hundred. Nine is the senators. Despite the fact that the House had had had these hearings didn't know the details of the case against President Clinton. They learning things. I think. The senators are learning being things today. I think many of them blocked out what happened in the house. They don't really know the details and today Jason Crowe Valda and the other managers managers were going point by point in a loyally factual professional way and the senators. Many of whom are lawyers had to actually be affected by this and of course they didn't their phones or anything else. All right all of you please stay with me. We're GONNA take a brief break. Senator Chris Murphy will be with us just coming out of that room during the break right. Afterwards we'll be right back.

Show you stayed in Michigan. So what happens the next day after we talked to him. So the next Eh. I arrive very early and already there are people there. Oh gotta go. And they're upset they're pissed west and that's because slatkin had already announced her decision in the local paper that morning of course we'd both understood from the interview where this go. Yes but she told her constituents and so in this bed. She says very clearly that she is voting. Yes on both articles of impeachment Moscow. Go Nature remove fat so people are lining up to get inside the auditorium where the town hall meeting will be held and outside. There's a bunch of protesters with big signs saying impeach slot can keep trump in bright eight red letters and some of them are carrying much smaller signs. That say we have your back. Which is the message? Exactly you're doing ask you very quickly. People start yelling at each other young Russia Russia. Because I'm a veteran and I do not support. Russia held a special to me. And you ask me about the one exchange that I found particularly memorable list. Was this veteran. You're standing. You're an American as an American talk in Washington in person who got very emotional and she basically said your your spouting Russian talking points to me to say. That Ukraine interfered in our election. It is the blue. Put your country for once. Okay are you. Would you like to discussing into people are really challenging each other's patriotism sooner or you can listen Brag about about bribing train with a billion dollars. Do you WanNa hear it. They're just looking at the facts and a totally different way. What prime name name one crime you jumped in? I'm listening abuse the power. Okay that they what exactly did he do to to abuse power. Save one having a foreign country meddle in the election. That's along join our in saying are you. Open Your Eyes Okay. So finally as we head into the auditorium in a large room people are registering and then walking into the auditorium. The rooms packed. How many chairs are here for eighteen? So we set up for about four hundred people. It's it's filling up. There are tons of media national local press covering this event. Can you tell. Tell me where you're from the Flint Journal and Mlive Dot Com merce news. I'm here for NPR Today. Simone from roll-call the Detroit free press the Oakland Press Detroit News. The New York Times Huffington having post Washington Post Associated Press Michigan advance. CNN and it's clear that this is the story which is moderate Democrats and their volna ability in this vote that they're taking. Let's play spock onto the stage. So what happens next. She's introduced by one of her staffers and she takes the stage age and immediately lately. The crowd erupts in both cheers and boom everybody. Well I'm thrilled to see such a great turnout today. Please please let her speak. And she basically can't get a word in let's please. I'm back to the people around you. We're here to listen. There is a very loud group in the corner of the room that is making it almost impossible for her to be heard by the rest of the room so in an attempt to be transparent. I'm going to walk you through my logic and I know it's clear that we don't all agree. I thought we needed to let the election of twenty twenty decide what was going to happen in our country. Those change that changed for me gone the very basic facts that the president of the United States who came out and his lawyer came out and said very specifically and they're screaming all sorts of things. Asian you and that is very different than and how president power right to be honest with you. I worked at the National Security Council under George Bush. I worked under the national security. The council under Barack Obama and presidents regularly meals their power. So the Ganders. Don't quite give her the chance to explain herself that she told us she been hoping for not really. They regularly leverage their position to influence other countries. That's a normal part of what a president does but what was fundamentally mentally different for me. Is that president. And there's one guy in particular in the back who screams you're part of the squad. The squad runs the Democrats the four best known house freshmen liberals. Exactly and at one point he even gets up and yells. You belong to Rashida uh-huh and what's so fascinating about this moment. Is that when we started reporting at the beginning of this year on the Freshman Class of Democrats it was exactly that completion completion. That people like Elissa Slacken. Were trying to avoid because they knew the Republicans would try to lump all the Democrats together as trump heating in left wing progressive. They would try to make a slot can and to lead indistinguishable. They're very different exactly and MM slatkin has been so cautious in this process. She's been thorough. She has had careful reasoning but none of that matters. In this moment moment she is Rashida sleep. According to this protesters the constitution letter said that the squawk nor should it but not since. I think that's exactly what gets under slatkin's skin this this feeling of not being understood in the way that she understands herself that no matter what she says no matter what she believes a significant number of her constituents or just going to see her as this kind of character of a Democrat and they're never going to agree with her and she's not going to be able to get rid of them. You could help health her voice that maybe she expected this. Maybe this seemed surprised. But it's still hard all right. Thank you very much for coming out today. Please leave safely back. Thank you thank you for listening. Appreciate it thank. You've are being good citizens.

"Now the thank you thank everybody for being here. It is great feedback. You're at thirty rock with all of you here. Could God today day today has been ten days and this week has been ten weeks and there are a million things happening at once. Just in the past couple of hours hours for instance we just got this incredibly incriminating in damning behind closed doors testimony from a US foreign service officer. That was supposed to be kind of like the e story day. The side show. It's a guy who works in the US embassy in Ukraine. A guy named David Holmes He. He testified behind closed doors that he could hear president trump talking on the phone to the US ambassador the European Union an inaugural donor give million bucks. Mr Trump Gordon someone and they were in a restaurant in Keiv and the president was shouting so loudly in the phone that Sunland John Lynch to hold the phone away from his ear because it was hurting his ear drum so then everyone could hear and After he hung up with the president told told this guy the guy who testified David Holmes the president does not give. And I'm quoting now so I can say it does not gonNA shit about Ukraine. He only cares about the big stuff and buy big stuff. He means investigations into the binds. Right yes that's all right area action in a restaurant and shouting through the phone so that just happened. We're GONNA have more on that very crazy testimony testimony later but this week one keep in mind in the public televised impeachment hearings the United States. It's just the fourth time in American history that we're all going through this process. I think it's fair to say and maybe I'm a bit biased. But I think it's fair to say he's not going really well for the president the first week today even before that breaking news was especially busy busy day in the in the criminal. Chronicles of one president. Donald J trump so the president's longtime longtime advisor and Associate Roger Stone. Today was convicted on seven counts in a federal court..

"The whole world was watching his impeachment hearing? I have a watch for one minute. And what Democrats. They're planning for a second act. If this is not impeachable conduct what is all in starts right. Now it's the ultimate impeachable offense. Good evening from New York. I'm Chris as it's here today. The House of Representatives held its first public televised hearing into the impeachment of president. Donald J trump. It is just the fourth time in American history that we've done this kind of thing as a country so if you're under the age of twenty you're not alive. The the last time this happened today. The American people got a fuller picture of the corrupt abuse of power. By the President of the United States we've known for over a month about the catalyst catalyst for this investigation. When the Ukrainian president told President trump he wanted to buy more American weapons and the president responded quote? I would like you to do us a favor though. So we have the call notes. We've gotten thousands and thousands of pages of transcripts from impeachment depositions of people testifying behind closed doors about what happened but today we got to hear it and see it with our own eyes it was truly historic the first witnesses in the impeachment hearing acting. US Ambassador to Ukraine. William Taylor her and Deputy Assistant Secretary St George Can. They testified in front of the House. Intelligence Committee for more than five hours and what we heard was specific testimony about right. How president trump withheld military systems from Ukraine? A country currently occupied by Russia. A country in desperate need of that aid and assistance in order to squeeze the new Ukrainian president into manufacturing dirt on the president's political rival ambassador. Taylor a man who served in critical State Department rolls around the world for over three decades and who somewhat remarkably still wakes up every morning when he's back in Ukraine and goes to work at the US embassy in Keiv described a conversation with us. Ambassador mastered the European Union. Gordon Sunland when Taylor realized the president trump was in fact withholding this vital military aid for his own personal. The game sent ambassador. Solomon text message asking if we are now saying that the security systems and a White House meeting conditioned edition on Investigations. Besser Sahlin responded asking me to call him which I did during that phone call. Investor Solomon told me that president didn't trump had told him that he wants presidents Alinsky to state publicly that Ukraine will investigate Barista and alleged Ukrainian interference in the two thousand sixteen sixteen election. Besser saw also told me that he now recognized that he had made a mistake by earlier telling Ukrainian officials that only a White House meeting with presence. Linski was dependent on a public announcement of the investigations. In fact ambassador Sunland said everything. Everything was dependent on such announcement including security assistance. Ambassador Taylor also explained how he learned that the words investigate corruption. We're just code for for investigate the Democrats and the bites. I'd come to understand well before. Then that investigations was a term ambassadors. Volker Sondheim used to mean matters related to the two thousand sixteen elections and to end to investigations of Barack Obama and Biden's Taylor also made a huge bit of news today when he revealed a previously undisclosed recent communication with a member of his staff that clearly demonstrates present from priorities and motivations keep in mind that the interaction action Taylor's describing and a bit of sound I'm going to play for you is from literally the day after trump's infamous phone call with Ukrainian president last Friday. A member of my staff told me of events that occurred on July twenty six while investor Vulcan Volcker and I visited the Front member of my staff accompanied ambassador. sunlen investor Sunland met with Mr Yearbook following that meeting in the presence of my staff at a restaurant. Aunt Besser Solomon called president trump and told him of his meetings and gave the member of my staff could hear president trump on the phone asking ambassador. Excellent about the investigations toll president trump the Ukrainians were ready to move forward following the call. With president trump trump. The member of my staff asked investors on what president trump thought about Ukraine. That's the song and responded that President Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden. MM which Giuliani was pressing for. I mean there you have it gas right. President trump cares more about the investigations of Biden. Sure does that is what this whole thing is about Gordon sunlit. A man who donated a million dollars the trump inaugural committee basically got the ambassador Gig as a thank. You meets with his the top Ukrainian official the day after the president. If Mr Call after that meeting someone goes to a restaurant in the middle of the restaurant decided to just ring up the pres- The update them and the president has solvent about the investigations. And he's doing it so loudly that other people near Sunland can hear President Trump Advisor Saga and tells them the deal. Well is on. We've closed it. You talked to him yesterday. I'm here in person to close. Ukrainians are ready to move forward with the investigations to sources. Tell them you see news. The man who related that account to master tailor a man named David Holmes will now be giving a private deposition to the committee on Friday. Trump was asked about that conversation. A press conference this afternoon and completely saying I don't recall dot at all not even a little bit. Today's hearing was the first opportunity for congressional Republicans to publicly cross examined people who had front row seats the presence. Extortion of Ukraine was their chance to refute the accusations being made to build a strong defense. The president's actions they it did not really do any of those things instead. They tried to make the hearing all about Joe Biden. Some argue that what those political investigations were in the best interest of Ukraine the US. Pass the deputy assistant secretary stage. George Kent Shredded. That defense is pressuring Ukraine to conduct. What I believe you've called political goal investigations a part of US foreign policy to promote the rule of law in Ukraine and around the world? It is not is it in the national interest of the United States. In my opinion it is not so in other words. It is a purpose of our foreign policy to encourage for nations to refrain from conducting political investigations. Is that right correct. And in fact as a matter of policy not of programming We oftentimes raise our concerns usually in private with countries that we feel are engaged in selective political prosecution and persecution of their opponents. It's George Ken who previously served as the senior anti-corruption coordinate coordinator in the State Department's here pin Bro- borough saying President Trump's pressure campaign was itself a kind of corruption that it was bad for the US and bad for Ukraine. Which I think just about sums up the entire story? We heard today joining me now. One of the members of Congress who questioned the two witnesses today Democratic Congressman Roger Crystal Worthy of Illinois a member both the House intelligence and oversight. Committee's Congressman. What did you think of today? What did you learn? Well I had about three takeaways a I is. We did learn new information. That makes it look like president. Trump was even more deeply involved than we previously thought. I mean for him to basically have a cell phone call with Sunland the very day after the July twenty fifth call to just kind of close the deal. As you mentioned before is news the second takeaway I had was at the witnesses presented very compelling in testimony Especially Ambassador Taylor and then the third is We actually maintain some good decorum today. It wasn't the circus that some people feared and I think credit goes the chairman shift for maintaining an excellent Set of proceedings laying the ground rules very clearly and dealing with points points of order and so forth Expeditiously in a fair way. One thing I noticed today and I'm curious if you had the same impression I did not hear. Republicans Republicans on the committee or the committee lawyer attempts to essentially make the case that there wasn't a kind of exchange condition quid pro. Whatever you WANNA call it seems to be you that the arguments about whether it was successful or whether it's legitimate interest to the United States to do that it was that your understanding of of of your colleagues arguments arguments yes? I did not hear too many arguments that you know. A lot of the central allegations the substance and of the charges against the President are actually non meritorious are false. It was rather like you said it was more with regard to yeah this happened but it was almost like the Mick Mulvaney get over it type of defense. What do you think the groundwork was laid today? And what are you you. How do you understand the trajectory of these hearings as they go forward well as you know there? A number of witnesses coming before US and the next couple for weeks on Friday we hear from Ambassador Ianovich and basically heard testimonies very important because essentially what she's going to be talking about If you read her deposition position transcript you would see that. Essentially a smear campaign was Kind of propagated against her by Giuliani to remove who've her and make way for the three Amigos namely Volker Sunlen and carry on with Giuliani to commandeer Ukraine policy not necessarily in the best interest of America but in the best interests of Giuliani's clients people like Donald Trump and maybe other potential International Actors as well today from Republicans was Complain about hearsay which they said a lot. That Taylor for instance ambassador killer never actually spoke directly directly to the president minor standings. And there's a number of people who have spoken directly president that had been called the committee that have declined. Would you like to be able to talk to say Mick Mulvaney or Rick Perry before your committee sure but but on the other hand there are a number of people coming. That have talked to the president's such as Gordon Sunland. Who's he's appearing next week but the most important thing that I would just point out? Is You know Gordon Sunland Tim. Morrison and others basically vouch for the recounting of these conversations with the president or is Alinsky that Ambassador tailor-made and so I have not yet heard anybody dispute these particular descriptions of those conversations and that's very important. How do you understand what your role is Both with you as a member of Congress but also the committee in this. I mean as you said before. These individuals have given depositions behind closed doors. What do you see is the function Shen of today and Friday and going forward? I think at least two functions one laying out the evidence in a way that's clear earlier and that educates the American public about what we've learned and then secondly asking questions building on what we learned in the depositions so for instance you know Mr Samland is coming in next Wednesday. He gave his deposition that he gave an addendum to his deposition. Clarifying certain points in the deficit uh-huh deposition so we'll want to know why like what what prompted for instance These clarifications. What more can you tell us? What can you tell us about this other conversation recession that we've learned just today that's going to be very important so at the same time we'll be laying out what we've learned? We're going to try to learn more. And that's very import. All right congressman it's been Roger Crystal Worthy Thank you very much. Thank you Chris. Joining me our to legal experts who are paying close attention. Today's hearing Melissa. Murray professor of Constitutional Law Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice now. MSNBC justice and national security analysts. Melissa I'll start with.

We're back in a TV. The interview in the glow of victory per scale quoted his wife candace Blount. She said that I was thrown into the Super Bowl. Never played a game in one and Pascale took his super bowl ring and monetize it. He tried to really cash in on the success of the presidential campaign. He actually pitched his commercial work. As the per scale effect and the notion was Mr Commercial Businessman Company Higher Birth scale to do the magic for your company that he did for Donald Trump that was kind of a theme he starts working on a project for the Dallas Mavericks. He pitches a high dollar digital marketing campaign campaign for seaworld does paid speeches in Romania and Monaco. He spotted flying around the world walking down an airplane. I'll he's hard to miss but he's also continuing to do. Political work literally from the moment trump takes office after the whole issue with the fight and the ad commissions per scale reframe things for the twenty twenty election says he's only taking a three hundred thousand dollars regear salary from the campaign but he positions himself to be the beneficiary of much larger income streams for his campaign work while his collecting the salary from the campaign his company gets paid millions of dollars by the Republican National Committee to make and buy ads well. There's certainly nothing the wrong people in politics making money of course there are lots of high level operatives for both parties who have unapologetically cashed in. It's business as usual for the political political class. Pascale says he's doing this for the love of country and trump working for trump is clearly made brad millions and transformed his life. He now drives Ferrari A and B. M. W. He owns a gorgeous two point four million dollar waterfront home in Florida the money from the campaign and the RNC weren't the only way press gal was making money after the two thousand sixteen election. His company was also making money from a pro-trump dark money group called America first and and that's a group that's free from the normal restrictions on disclosing its donors on how much money can raise and how it spends money under the law. These groups are barred art from coordinating with a political campaign but per scale had actually co founded this group along with other trump campaign operatives and he was simultaneously only getting paid by both trump's reelection campaign and America. First Common Cause has filed complaints about this with both the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department I meant the complaints are still pending after scales named campaign manager in February two thousand eighteen America first which has to publicly report. It's payments suddenly suddenly stopped paying Brad's company personnel strategy but then per scales crew didn't stop doing the work and he didn't stop making money from it. He incorporated rated a mysterious Delaware. LC that had no public connection to him. It's called Red State Data and digital it took over the work per scall- was doing for America the first Super Pac. It's payments as reported in Public Federal Election Commission filings were to a anonymous mail-drop at a Pennsylvania Avenue ups. PS Store and the secretive new company which had no other known clients is made more than nine hundred thousand dollars at first per scale all set his company's work for the RNC the Super Pac and the trump campaign were all legally vetted after PROPUBLICA and other news organizations began asking further questions for scale said he'd stopped doing advise for the RMC but all of that back and forth obscured something Peter you uncovered something else. It's not just that scale was getting streams of income from the campaign. Super PAC and the RNC. It's that the trump campaign has taken over the currency. NC An unprecedented ways under trump the currency has become practically a wholly owned subsidiary of the trump campaign. Now it's not unusual for president to direct their parties to play a critical role but as with so much else in this situation trimtabs way way further than any of his predecessors have one way this has happened. There's a metric down ballot candidates people running for governor or Congress look at called voter scores. It's information Russian on how voters in a particular district feel about trump which could affect campaign ads and messaging previously the RNC would allow these Republican Republican candidates to see this information not trump so candidates in Michigan or Ohio or Illinois who who were trying to figure out how best to run their campaigns how best to be victorious. Republican candidates are deprived of the information from the party on how L. voters in their district feel about trump. RNC officials say the data belongs to the trump campaign which is free to withhold it. If the president wants America I declined comment. It's kind of an enforced loyalty. They don't have the information that they need that might incline them to distance themselves therefore they're in this situation of of being afraid that if they don't hue very closely to the president and to his wishes that that they're going to jeopardize their own candidacies clearly president trump is not patient or tolerant of people that try try to run campaigns distance themselves from him and it's not just the fear factor the parties actually also depriving them of information that might be helpful in them winning reelection or winning office and in two thousand sixteen trump promise to drain the swamp to fund his own on campaign to reduce the influence of big donors. That's not what happened so here. We have what's projected to be America's first billion-dollar in dollar political campaign if so much money rocketing through the trump campaign and updates related accounts and the groups that are supporting trump and per scale is at the center of it all all he personifies a huge issue which is how big money has taken over American politics.
