"You know there's a lot of things going on in the world but because trump is not an office. I actually don't have a good idea of what we're gonna talk about today so. Please tell me what we're gonna talk about well. We are actually an attack a bit more about trump because seems to linger here. But i thought you when i would talk about that. Subject of d platforming. Oh okay. that's interesting all right. So on tuesday february ninth. Trump's second impeachment trial began the senate. I decided fifty six to forty four. Vote that a former president can in fact stand trial for impeachment even after having left office and that trial move very quickly house. Impeach managers who serve as the prosecution team showed us some dramatic images and videos of what happened on january six when trump supporters attacked the capital and delayed congress's certification of the election. Remember there was just one single charge or article of impeachment against trump and that was for inciting insurrection. Representative jamie raskin was the lead manager and in his closing argument. He said it's now clear beyond doubt that trump supported the actions of the mob. And so he must be convicted. It's that simple. He was not. The trial ended on saturday february thirteenth now. A majority of the senate did vote to convict trump including seven republican senators. But the fifty seven to forty three vote. Fell short of what the constitution requires. And that's a two-thirds majority are fifty seven. The nays are forty. Three two thirds of the senators president not having guilty. The senate judges responded donald. John trump former president united states is not guilty as charged the article peach birth now trump was acquitted of that single charge of inciting the capital attack on january six and because of the acquit all. The senate never held a vote on disqualifying trump from office. So he's free to run for president in two thousand twenty four trump's the first president to be impeached twice and the first to be tried after leaving office and for that he makes history. But i'd like us to return to the riot at the capitol just one more time for a different perspective to look at the link between what happened in washington and what happened online. Theoretically come ready. let's do it so remember that. Many of the writers came directly from president. Trump's save america rally that began that morning on the ellipse. That's the park near the white house. And trump had addressed the crowd with some fiery language but it was elsewhere that really mattered for weeks and really for months trump had been on social media especially on twitter and facebook with false claims that there had been election fraud and that he not biden had won the election. And if you look back now you can see pretty. Clearly how much. Social media was tangled up in the events of january sixth so first barriers around the capital were breached by his supporters around one o'clock that day in about an hour later riders broke into the building and some of them started scaling.

How Media Differs in Coverage of Trump Impeachment Trial
"From wnyc in new york. This is on the media. Bob garfield is away. This week. i'm brooke gladstone writing early on friday. My impeachment experienced this week was incomplete consisting of an incoherent improvisation in the first act. That's a rare. Bipartisan view and a clarion concatenation. In the second try listeners. Too often with a phrase like that. And you're asking for trouble but it's so good clarion a clear ringing stirring sound concatenation and interlocking sequence in this case in unbreakable narrative chain. Wow nd around the senate to extract a verdict of guilty. Some senators said they felt the case presented against trump built on months of his words and deeds climaxing in violent rampage. Black physical memory of trauma. Indeed the point was to convey the truth in body as well as mind and the truth is president. Trump had spent months hauling his supporters to a march on a specific day at a specific time in specific places to stop the certification. You will not be hearing extended lectures for me because our case is based on cold hard facts at trial we will prove overwhelming evidence that president trump is singularly and directly responsible for inciting the salt on the capital. They took away your vote. It's rigged that was not true. According to judge after judge the truth was exactly the opposite president. Donald john trump incited this violence. This is what the evidence has overwhelmingly shown. And we'll show in this trial. it's also the truth. There are evidence came from an impressive array of sources. fbi affidavits media reports capital. Police radio recordings along thirty second videos captured by documentary ins citizen. Journalists capitol security camera footage live streaming insurrectionists and the presentation of trump's own tweets as.

He told his supporters to come to dc for a big protests the day billing it as wild just days later women for america first amended their permit to hold their rally on january six. That was stacey plaskitt delegate for the united states virgin islands for the prosecution. Here's what the fbi said. And i quote other members of the group talked about things. They had done that day and they said that anyone they got their hands on they would have killed including nancy. Pelosi and that quote they would have killed vice president. Mike pence if given the chance combining cctv footage with a diagram of the capital. She showed how very close members of congress had been to the mob and they showed video of the senators themselves watching themselves evacuate including a very close. Call for senator mitt romney.

"donald john trump b." Discussed on Republic Keeper - with Brian O'Kelly
"From says it's admitted but the constitution does say that it's denied that. The forty fifth president engaged in insurrection rebellion. So we admit you've got it right. What the constitution says. We don't think you have a right that the president did that and is not relevant to the senate because he's a citizen kane so everyone of these things is Admitted denied not relevant. Okay this one is Answer three denied and irrelevant so in his conduct while president united states and in violation of constitutional faithfully execute so he didn't faithfully execute his duties but the charge right and there's end denied and irrelevant. Now he did his job. It's denied that the president engaged in violation of office. He did his job and it's not relevant because he's a private citizen charge number four. Donald trump engaged high crimes and misdemeanors by inciting violence. Okay and the quote. The impeachment charge. They say we admitted in part denied in part tonight. As irrelevant okay. So it's admitted that a joint session occurred. It's admitted that the president exercises his first amendment right to express his opinion right. And then they'd say here. This is really important submitted. After the november election the forty fifth president exercises first amendment right under the constitution to express his belief that the election results were suspect since with very few exceptions under the guise of covid nineteen pandemic Safeguards state election laws and procedures chain by local politicians or judges without the necessary approvals from state legislatures insufficient evidence exists upon which a reasonable jurists conclude that the president statements were accurate or not and therefore denies. They were false like all americans. The forty fifth president protected by the first amendment. In did he believes in therefore refers that the united states is unique on earth in that its governing documents the constitution and bill of rights specifically intentionally protect unpopular speech from government retaliation if the first amendment protected only speech the government deemed popular in current american culture. It would be no protection at all. That's exactly the point of the first amendment isn't it if it doesn't protect the unpopular opinion. It doesn't protect any opinions. All right and then they say since the first forty fifth president longer president the constitution doesn't apply okay charge number five shortly before the joint session commands. President trump addressed the crowd at the capitol in washington. Dc they're he re reader false claims that we won the election and we won by a landslide So admitted part. It's admitted that he addressed a crowd. It's admitted that he said that. Okay we don't admit that that it was a false statement. He also willfully made statements in context. Encouraged forcibly foreseeably resulted in lawless actions at the capital. Such as if you don't fight like hell you're not gonna have a country anymore. So they're saying he should have seen it and they're saying admitted part denied in part. It's admitted that persons unlawfully breached and vandalized the capital. The people were injured and killed in that law enforcement is investigating but denied the president trump inside at the crowd. So we admit that that happened. We deny that the president had anything to do with it. Okay now they've said this is another just little aside. The legal team has said that when they go to the defense that they're going to produce timelines of that okay so it's no kangaroo court because the gotta get seventeen senators and they're not going to get seventeen. Senators are not going to get a conviction so it's a show trial and and the show trial means that the impact is on the public. There's no legal impact because the president's first of all private citizen and even if they even if they convicted him the only impact would be that they could say he couldn't office they can't put them in jail. Nothing there's no impact of this whatsoever except the impact on the public and so this is why it's a suicide mission for the democrats because they're trying to Put themselves in the position of virtue. But it's the show. Trial is going to show that the election in fact might not have been on the up and up. Okay charge number seven president. Trump's conduct followed his prior efforts to subvert the election and included his efforts to call brad ravensburger and so admitted into part denied in part is relevant and so it's admitted that president trump spoke with him at other parties and basically denied that he made any effort to subvert the certification of the results. And here's what it says. It's that the word find was inappropriate in context. As president trump was expressing his opinion that the evidence was carefully examined. One would find the of many that aren't even signed and many that are forgeries so all he was saying you will find. You will find different results if you do the work okay. And so that's Number eight charged that they made in all. This president trump gravely endangered the security the united states in institutions governments he threaten the integrity of the democratic system. There answered denied and denied as irrelevant. It's either president trump ever endangered the security. Us and it's interesting. The government's denied that he threatened the interior the democratic system. It's died. He betrayed his trust. As president to the manifest injury the united states rather the forty fifth president united states performed admirably in his role as president at all times doing what he thought was in the best interest of the american people. The forty fifth president believes in there for verse that in the united states the people choose their president and that he was properly chosen in two thousand sixteen in sworn in office in office in two thousand seventeen serving his term. The best ability in comportment with his oath of office came. So that's the that's the upshot and the basically goes on they ask them to quit and they say if you don't acquit let us defend it on the merits okay. And so that's the upshot of the Of the legal defense now. A couple of things have happened since we're gonna have quick break and we'll get back to look at their two letters That have been drafted. One is Congressman raskin drafted a letter to president trump inviting him to testify and then we have the response from the presence legal team to that and so that will set the table. You'll be up to speed on everything impeachment related. I believe as we move forward for the weekend so also going to open the phones. If you wanna call we can. We can grab some calls during the break Upcoming break here. And what you guys think as we get back to phone number eight six nine hundred eight eighty three eleven. You see if. I can make this thing fire off in the right way. It was find out locks staying on top of reports all that. we'll.

So here they go on. They're saying continuing on it says in the months preceding the joint session. President trump repeatedly issued false statements. Asserting that the precedent presidential election results where the product of wide spreads fraud and should not be accepted by the people or certified by state or federal officials. Oh oh right here. Repeatedly issued false statements. What do you get to do if you're the guy who's being accused of that you get demonstrate that your statements weren't false. Don't you demonstrate that you didn't make false statements. Then they went on and says they then he reiterated false claims again. They've now they've doubled down. They've doubled down on their stupid because they know some of them at least know that the election was stolen or that it was. There are enough questions that it warrants investigation. Let's say it that way. I don't know what was stolen to you. I know that there are a lot of questions. And the gateway pundit. I think has some video. That's coming out today Can't wait to see it. I think it'd be released probably during the show. So trump says if we won this election we wanna landslide. They said that's a false claim. Well if he won by a landslide and he can demonstrate it. Don't think they want that. They said if you don't fight like hell you're not gonna have a country anymore and you know that's supposedly incitement while i'll tell you what the idea you gotta fight fight fight that's that's standard stump speech for anybody everybody forever and it's bologna and everybody knows it. There's no it's not complicated right. That's not complicated. And that's the entire complaint. They also complain about this. He said Brand burger to find an votes to overturn the election. And that's it that's it so the president's attorneys responded came. Here is the response from the president attorneys and again. I wanna point out that. They're they're. His attorneys are criminal. Defense and racketeering attorneys. They're not constitutional law tourneys his first legal team. The jinnah ellis are rudy. Giuliani crap show. That should have resulted in the all. The votes being properly counted that should have resulted in that was based on. We're gonna these states to act and we're gonna get supreme court to act and they thought that they would be compelled to that. The courts would have to do their thing. they didn't want to touch fraud rudy. Even when into court in pennsylvania said no. We're not alleging fraud. Okay and. I don't know that there's fraud. I just know this innocent people. Don't hide stuff and some people are motivated to hide stuff and the way. The mira county people are acting. Everybody seems to be resistant to inspection and romans thirteen. I say it all the time. Romans thirteen says rulers are not a terror to good works. If you're doing the right thing you never have to be afraid of anybody looking at what you're doing you don't have to be afraid of an audit if if you're paying your taxes you had to rent an audit if you're not paying your taxes it's a hassle but you don't have to fear it okay. So the attorneys. Say to the honorable members of the senate. Now notice this.

There's no statute of limitations. That would mean that the new precedent set is that next time Republicans were in power they could reach back and impeach a former Democratic president, Texas Senator John Cornyn, also taking issue with the push to prevent Trump from ever seeking office again if convicted by the Senate. But Democrats say the former president must be held accountable and the trial will move forward even is President Biden tries to accelerate the fight against Cove it and find common ground on more covert relief open to changes in his proposed package. I prefer these things to be bipartisan, because I'm trying to generate some Census and take sort of the How can I say it vitriol out of all of this, But he's already suggesting that just because of Bill passes along party lines doesn't mean there isn't unity. In addition to being a source of friction, the impeachment trial will take time and conviction would take much more than a party line vote in the divided chamber days after January. 6th. It did look like there was no mentum. Among Republican senators to convict President Trump. John Roberts is co anchor of America reports on the Fox News Channel. The White House was concerned that the numbers could be high enough for their actually to be a conviction. Which would have meant that 17 Republican senators would have had to vote in favor of convicting President Trump. But since then, the mo mentum toward a conviction among Republicans has waned to a large degree, and now the momentum is actually swinging the other way. Pendulum has now moved toward declaring this process to be unconstitutional. This idea of holding a Senate trial for a president who is no longer in office and adding to that is this idea that the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, will no longer be presiding over the trial that will now fall to the Senate. President Pro TEM Senator Pat Leahy from Vermont, all of which taken together adds to this growing idea in the Republican Party that this is an illegitimate process that this is being done on Lee for political reasons. It's on Lee being done to punish President Trump and really doesn't hold any validity in terms of whether or not President Trump will continue to hold office. What about the big picture here? And the political calculus for Mitch McConnell, who's now the Senate minority leader again? Um, because some analysts have pointed out that he seems to be treating this impeachment differently than the last one. You know, as if he feels it's more credible or at least that's how it seemed initially. Um are they reading too much into that? Or is he you know, does he have sort of an ulterior? Agenda here. Mitch McConnell was going further than I've ever seen him before, in terms of what might happen if there were to be a in impeachment trial in the Senate, suggesting that he was really trying to make a break and President Trump But in the days that followed that, really now, the weeks that followed that McConnell seems to be taking a different tack. I have been told by sources in Congress that McConnell, Maybe one of the people whose coalescing around this idea that this is impeachment trial is not constitutional. I don't want to say that he thinks it's a legitimate but not constitutional, and that the president has already left office. I think there's been a bit of a change in position for Mitch McConnell. What about pressure on the new president to sort of not interfere and let this trial happen? However, the Senate wants that to happen. Because it's clearly been at least slow down portions of his agenda just as he's trying to do as much as he can as fast as he can. Right. There's no question that a Senate trial Is going to affect Joe Biden's agenda and how quickly he gets his confirmations die. How quickly he could get some of his signature legislation through that, said Joe Biden is a you know an alumnus understand it. He knows that the Senate Act is an independent body. It's been said that there are 100 presidents that inhabit the Senate. I mean, clearly they are of their own minds. So for a president to say, Well, this is how I think the Senate should do. It is not gonna fly very well on Capitol Hill. So is a student as an alumnus. Understand it. Biden. I think his wisely stepping back to say, Look, this is your deal. You handle it. You handle it The way you will atone east in the public statements. I wouldn't be surprised if behind the scenes in private. He is raising some concerns about what might happen in the next few weeks in the Senate, but but clearly he's he's taking a step back to say. San. It's an independent body. I'm not about to tell them what to do, because if he were, he would likely get some blowback from them, and he definitely needs to send it if he wants to get his agenda troop I know you've covered the White House for a long time help big of a contrast is the start of this administration compared to the start of the Trump administration. Yeah, it's markedly different from from from out of the gate with the Trump administration. We were going 100 Miles an hour on the roller coaster and that never stopped. Even if you look to the very first briefing was Sean Spicer, where Spicer came out and and ripped the press for allegedly lying about the numbers of people who went to the inauguration all the way up until the last press conference from Keighley back in it, they were contentious, combative affairs. That really sort of was the hallmark of the Trump administration that it was a contentious, combative administration. This administration is much more located. Briefings are cordial. I don't want to say they're collegial, but they're definitely cordial, even though I think Jen Psaki is getting some more pointed questions, and she wasn't the first couple of great things, and I think that that's the way that this administration is going to progress. It will be a kind of a Let's get business done type of administration, as opposed to this grand show that President Trump in that shed, though I think that Joe Biden does face some headwinds in terms of getting his agenda through because he is beset with a number of different crises, and now he owns them. He's the president.

I've spoken to Speaker Pelosi, who informed me that the articles will be delivered to the Senate on Monday. Now I've heard some of my Republican colleagues. You argue that this trial would be unconstitutional because Donald Trump is no longer in office, An argument that has been roundly repudiated, debunked by hundreds of constitutional scholars left right and center and defies basic common sense. It makes no sense whatsoever that a president or any official could commit a heinous crime against our country and then be permitted to resign, so is to avoid accountability and vote to dispose. Are them from future office makes no sense. Regardless, the purveyors of this unusual argument are trying to delay the inevitable.

"Okay so like i said we have congressman castro's in d. c. The reason why. I wanted to bring him on it actually. I wanted to talk to him at the start of the joe biden transition and then the capital attack happen and then i found out during this whole impeachment proceeding that. He was one of the nine impeachment. Manager's name by speaker of the house. Nancy pelosi and i said i gotta talk to representative castro who represents the twentieth congressional district in texas and on wednesday before talked to him. He was on the floor of the house during the second impeachment. Vote and this is what he said. Donald trump is the most dangerous man to ever occupy the oval office. I wanna take you back one week ago. Today when people were barging through these doors breaking the windows with weapons armed pipebombs coming here to harm all of you to harm the speaker to harm the senate. Let me ask you a question. What do you think they would have done if they had gotten in. What do you think they would have done to you. And who you think sent them here. The most dangerous man to ever occupy the oval office if inciting a deadly insurrection is not enough to get a president impeached. Then what is all of us. Must answer that question today. The constitution requires us to impeach and remove. Donald john trump. So here is the conversation that i had on wednesday evening literally about fifteen minutes after the house of representatives voted to impeach donald trump for the second time congressman castro was in his office in dc. And i was in my latino rebels studio in an undisclosed location. So here's the conversation. First of all thank you so much for saying yes to this. I'm honored that you said. I'm talking to julio before anybody so that means a lot all right so here. We go representative castro. Were talking literally right after the vote to impeach. Donald trump for the second time happened before we get into the events of this wednesday. Can you talk to me about the events of last wednesday and what. It really meant being there. Because i honestly feel congressman. That people are starting to forget what's happening and it's only been a week. Can you tell me what went on. Since the election for weeks months actually donald trump had been saying that he won the election and that it was stolen from him and that he wanted landslide and finally asked his supporters to come to washington on january six and the president held a rally and he repeated those claims about this idea that he was denied a second term in the presidency. And of course these are supporters who were die hard supporters of donald trump. So the idea to them that the guy that they trust is saying these democrats the election from me that incited them to march to the capital and for some of them to become violent and engage in an insurrection. Attempted coup at the united states capitol takeover the senate floor and try to make their way into the house chamber and so it was very scary and intense period. I was in my office in the rayburn building and There were in the halls in the tunnels police officers. Who were frantic. Who were asking everybody to lockdown and shelter in place because the security has been breached by that point and it turns out but it was actually even worse than we imagine. People were armed. Some of them had arms. Five people lost their lives that day. It so this will go down as an ugly tragic and sad moment in american democracy in american history.

Congratulations to the incoming forty-six president on joined with more on this by scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. First of all to senator mcconnell's concessions slash congratulations. How big a deal is that. It's a big deal in the immediate term because it finally tips off that the republican heavyweights in washington are going to accept a president-elect biden now there will be a few house republicans who i think. Make a couple of false on january six which is when you have the formal congressional confirmation of the electoral college vote but by but mcconnell action only put out a statement yesterday. He sent his jeopardy john tune around to legislators to say that that house rebellion amongst republicans would not be very welcome. So i think the immediate issue is slow. Joe biden comes in as the forty six american president but there were onto the next two issues and one of those is whether mcconnell will work with the biden administration or just keep trying to obstruct it and then perhaps the broader issue at least for the republican party is that even if donald trump is water president. He may not be ready to cancel the reality. Tv show yet. So how does the gop try to count. Try to deal with an insurgent trumpism trying to take over the circus. Being mcconnell's acknowledgement is of course roughly the equivalent of admitting that the sun is going to come up tomorrow morning at eight hundred knowledge of reality but how much political calculation is mcconnell. Still making their because ridiculous. Though it is to even stated out loud feels we. There will be now a not insignificant number of trump voters american citizens who feel like senator mcconnell ease in on the plot. It's already out there. I mean donald trump was on twitter. Re tweeting and tweeting messages. Yesterday that mcconnell had sold him out and a very hard right polemicist information free performances. Still influential mark. Levin was calling last night for the resignation of mcconnell his replacement by someone more appropriate but becomes been around for decades. And he's pretty sharp. He's carried water for trump for almost four years. He no longer is facing that issue carrying water for trump facing that issue of word as the gop. Go nuts nuts andrew. We looked at another signal from yesterday after weeks. Indeed months of holding up a corona virus stimulus bill mcconnell was finally discussing it with leading republicans and democrats like the house speaker. Nancy pelosi in other words. We may get a deal by the end of this week. Which would be bipartisan. Which would be a stimulus deal in which neither side gets every thing at wants but it's actually a sign of cooperation now. We'll mcconnell can do that through the spring or will he as he did with the obama administration only a few years ago. Try to block it at every turn. I think that's the big immediate question. In washington even as the republicans try to grapple with what their identity is not post trump but still in the midst of trump. i mean. How difficult is that going to make life full mcconnell and what we might still think of as mainstream republicans in the mean all political parties have a lunatic fringe. That's pretty much on avoidable. But the republican party has been now more or less entirely captured by this poll off. The poll shows that a heavy majority of republican. Voters believed that last month presidential election was rigged despite the fact that not one shred of evidence for this assertion has been presented. Yeah but andrew. I think working at two levels in this new form of twenty-first-century politics and we're not sure if one triumphs or were not sure even if they coexist with each other in some strange political fantasy world and by that i mean what are they mitch. Mcconnell's looking at is you looking at the day to day workings of washington and that is donald trump doesn't have that many troops in the senate. Donald trump doesn't have anybody in the agencies because they all hate him. Donald trump does have sung trump est in the house The mcconnell thinks. Look you know i can deal with those folks and i think in normal times he could can mcconnell deal where the trumpster strongest however which is in this world of the airwaves. The hard right attack These aren't news companies. These are basically propaganda. L. newsmax breitbart and even most of fox. You know kim mcconnell actually deal with that media invective. it's become date after day after day. Which will say if he deals with democrats he sold out. And what if we get the spanner in the works and it may be sooner rather than later that trump says hey guys. I'm running for president in two thousand twenty four and he tries to dominate the new cycle with the day-to-day spectacle of. What's donald going. Do next i. I still think that the idea of a trump is takeover. The republican party is probably not there. But i do think. The trump insurgency at the level of the day to day chatter is still alive because again quick reminder more than half of republicans fifty four percent said in a recent poll that their favorite candidate for twenty twenty four donald. John trump. Well on that happy thought. How big a thing is it going to be. If on january twentieth president trump declines to turn up to watch biden be inaugurated as his successor and perhaps even tries to stage some sort of rival event. Well it'll be as big an event as the media makes it and here you know. The media doesn't make the news but it's got a role to play. It's been a part of the problem in the united states. It's part of the most critical point for america right now since. Nineteen forty five if the media gives attention to trump which tries to override or at least tries to rival. The inauguration play into his hands if the media effectively ignores trump which is a possibility. Believe it or not it just keeps focused on the inauguration and keeps focused on the business to be done in a pandemic in which one of the three hundred thousand americans died. Look trump only only gets spread his particular type of political whether you call it snake oil or poison. If someone's there to buy it is the media doesn't buy it snake oil salesman. You got nowhere to go

He did so through a scheme or course of conduct that included soliciting the government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit benefit. His reelection. Harm the election prospects of a political opponent and influence the twenty twenty United States presidential election to his advantage. President trump also sought to pressure the government of Ukraine to take these steps by conditioning official United States government acts of significant value to Ukraine on its public announcement of the investigations. President trump engaged in the scheme or course of conduct for corrupt purposes in pursuit of personal political benefit and doing so president trump used the powers of the presidency in a manner that compromised the national security of the United States and undermined the integrity of the United States democratic process us he thus ignored an injured the interests of the nation president trump engaged in the scheme or course of conduct through the following means One President trump acting both directly through his agents within and outside the US government corruptly solicited the government of Ukraine to publicly the announce investigations into a political opponent former vice president. Joseph R Biden Junior. And be a discredited theory. Promoted by Russia alleging that Ukraine rather than Russia interfered in the twenty sixteen United States presidential election to with the same corrupt motives motives president trump acting both directly and through his agents within and outside the United States government condition to official acts on the public announcements that he had requested a the release of three hundred ninety one million of United States taxpayer funds. That Congress had appropriated on a bipartisan basis for for the purpose of providing vital military and security assistance to Ukraine to oppose Russian aggression and which president trump at ordered suspended and be a head of state meeting at the White House which the president of Ukraine sought to demonstrate continued United States support or the government of Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression three faced with the public revelation of his actions. President trump ultimately released the military and security assistance to the government of Ukraine but has persisted and openly and corruptly urging and soliciting Ukraine to undertake investigations for his personal political benefit. These actions were consistent insistent with President. Trump's previous invitations of foreign interference in United States elections in all of this president trump abused the powers of the presidency presidency by ignoring an injuring national security and other vital national interests to obtain an improper personal political benefit is also betrayed the nations by abusing his high office to enlist a foreign power in corrupting democratic elections. wherefore president trump by such conduct has has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self governance finance and the rule of law president trump thus warrants impeachment and trial removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor trust or profit under the United States article to obstruction of Congress? The Constitution Russian provides that the House of Representatives quote shall have the sole power of impeachment unquote and that the president quote shall be removed from office on impeachment not for and conviction of treason. Bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors unquote in his conduct of the office of the president of the United States and and in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully execute the office of the president of the United States and to the best of his ability preserve protect and defend the constitution constitution of the United States and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed. Donald J trump has directed the unprecedented categorical an indiscriminate defiance of subpoenas issued by the House of Representatives pursuant to its quote sole power of impeachment unquote president. President trump has abused the powers of the presidency in a manner offensive to and subversive of the constitution in that House of Representatives has engaged in an impeachment inquiry focused on President Trump's corrupt solicitation of the government of Ukraine to interfere in the twenty twenty United States presidential election as part of this impeachment inquiry. The committee's undertaking the investigation served subpoenas seeking documents and testimony deemed vital to the inquiry from various executive eight of branch agencies and offices and current and former officials in response without lawful cause or excuse. President trump directed executive branch agencies offices and officials not to comply. With those subpoenas president trump thus interposed. The powers of the presidency against the lawful subpoenas appeanas of the House of Representatives and assumed to himself functions and judgments necessary to exercise the quote sole power of Impeachment Unquote vested hosted by the Constitution in the House of Representatives. President trump abused the powers of his high office through the following means one and directing the White House to defy lawful subpoena by withholding the production of documents sought therein by the Committees to directing other executive executive branch agencies and offices to defy lawful subpoenas and withhold the production of documents and records from the committees in response to which the Department of State Office of Management and Budget Department of Energy and Department of Defense refuse to produce a single document or record three.

Michael Mick Mulvaney Robert de Blair. John a Eisenberg. Michael Ellis Preston Wills Griffith Russell t vote Michael Duffy Brian. McCormack and T- alrich breakfast. Will these actions were consistent distant with President. Trump's previous efforts to undermine United States government investigations into foreign interference in United States elections through these these actions president trump sought to arrogate to himself the right to determine the propriety scope and nature of an impeachment inquiry into his own conduct as as well as the unilateral prerogative to deny any and all information to the House of Representatives in the exercise of its quote sole power of impeachment unquote in the history of the republic. No president has ever ordered the complete defiance of an impeachment inquiry or sought to obstruct and impede so comprehensively apprehensively the ability of the House of Representatives to investigate quote high crimes and misdemeanors unquote. This abuse of office served to cover corrupt. The president's own repeated misconduct and to seize and control the power of impeachment and thus to nullify a vital constitutional safeguard vested solely early in the House of Representatives. In all of this president trump has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as president and subversive of constitutional constitutional government to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice entered the manifest injury of the people of the United States. wherefore for president trump by such conduct has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to the constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self governance and the rule of law president trump thus warrants impeachment and trial removal from office and Disqualification Gatien to hold and enjoy any office of honor trust or profit under the United States and that concludes a reading of House House resolution?

"I saw some of the presser At the State Department and Lovro was standing there right next to Pompeo saying from the steps of our State Department in a hard this capitalist country that well it's clear from the evidence that Russia had nothing to do with the interference elections in two thousand sixteen unbelievable I. It's very believable because Russia but what was shocking to me is that although he okay. I'll say it's pushback. POMPEO did like after those comments came out. It was so weak six. Suzy was but the part another question that was asked was like so. What about the interference thing and Lavrov said see? That's proof that Russia didn't do you WANNA interference in the two thousand. Sixteen election didn't touch that he didn't push back at all. There was like he he just let that roll and that like I mean I think it's guarantee he that Russia's going to bring up it's nonsense. They didn't do anything that's who they are but for pump. Heo Not even pushback on that. It's I mean it's clearly political and it's a sign of where we're headed. What kind of interference are 'cause? We've heard this talking point a lot now in the last few weeks. What kind of interference are they alleging? Ready made me Crane Clinton so well here's part of the problem too is that the Republicans cannot acknowledge what's really going on When trump had a phone call was once again the twenty fifth of July by what he requested was an investigation into a conspiracy theory designed to exonerate Russia? He says it's the whole crowd strikes everything it's is. It probably came from Putin himself. Because I've never seen another source for the DNC server Which is a cloud server so like whatever Was Somehow is now in Ukraine and they have proof proof that was and not Russia that half the DNC males and release them So that is what trump even says like. Oh these muller testified. Yesterday that sad man like that's done with but we need to know what started. The thing was started the Russia investigation. So the the thing that Giuliani to has been in Ukraine trying to pro investigation to is this in Russia Nothing Defense Republicans won't touch that. They do not acknowledge they avoid ever mentioning the fact that is what's going on here instead. They had this crazy Roese like sat argument that the interference was because in twenty sixteen they were few Ukrainian officials that occasionally said like mild by relatively mild criticism of trump. And also the idea that when metaphor the whole black books smuggling forgery and he's innocent they don't don't actually say Manafort's innocent. They do say that. The release of that information was somehow political But the actual Republican talking point is not that that Manafort is being framed. They seem to agree. He's guilty but the political post didn't have crews give an interview couple of days ago where he did say directly that he said the GOP is not touching getting it but didn't Crews say that a couple of days ago. He's like not as refrain but did what the interfere in the election. I just Ukraine. He said those Russia but also Ukraine the crap. I mean. He's had recruited something. I guess that's what he was talking about this. The whatever the offense that were written or whatever it was the decreasing officials shed about trump. Mind these comments for Ukraine officials. Those were directly in response to trump seeming to. You know go along with the idea that Russia now owns Crimea. Crimea is Russia. And it's fine like that's A. That's it's a threat to Ukraine's existence so there of course there was comments about alarm concern over it but relatively they were not the kind of compensate like a lot of the world was giving it the time it. They're definitely nothing in near as bad as what house. Republicans are saying back in two thousand nine hundred sixteen so there. There's no like the idea that it's interference for someone to write an op Ed. That says like we're concerned. Donald trump is taking a line. That's different from the usual. Gop Line you know that's nonsense. What was Lavrov meeting with? Doing what was on the agenda was at This treaty we. We thought it was just the start treaty. But then we had. What's his face a frigging the guys come and go so fast and like the guy wasn't Rela what he's the guy he was? He said that it was also discussed election or fearance alarming. I would like to know more about that because yeah I mean Putin was listening on it. Two whole time They have recording the conversation. We started off the top of the show talking about the fact that there were two to press conferences morning. One introduced articles of impeachment with a second one house. Dumber like a hot on the heels of the articles impeachment. We would like to announce this wonderful bipartisan agreement that we have reached a new trade deal with with Mexico. You know this is something that trump has been flouting for a while now and the dumps have agreed to whatever new terms which is all great and fine. Is that not weird is it just me. I think is weird timing to put those like right back to back. Couldn't that have waited. Couldn't they have used that as leverage like what's we'll never never play this when you say what's going to happen after this what's GonNa Happen to me is like the. Gop knows how far it can go and the dumpster will never play that out dirty. Which I guess is a good thing but I I'm implying that dirty? It's not GonNa fix it. I mean they could play Better Paula. I don't know I have no. I assume that there is very calculate calculate strategic thinking going into this. I really friendly people and no. I don't think it's so much I think it is I I think primarily. It's like one. They just wanted to get it done. So but this is the deal that never would have come through the when will Republicans the House and Senate obviously obviously but like it's democratic bill like the Republicans would never have agreed to do this if it wasn't for trump because trump wants it it's very protectionist. It's very pro union The Democrats Democrats got a lot of the stuff they wanted in there. It's not free Margaret friendly so they have genuine reasons for liking stuff in there like the actually do want one and trump doesn't give a shit. It's less free trade so he likes it and gets tout his whatever new NAFTA And the stock market uncertainty caused by all his long delays with this going to resolve itself. So it'll be a small boat from that. So that's I mean. The logic is Democrats actually won like literally just want it so it works out out there doing it now. I guess it's weird all around. I don't even know so. I mean basically what they're saying is we don't care if it gives trump trump win it furthers our agenda but that's let's and I think that's great. I think that's the way it should be. But that's totally not how Republicans publicly. Just don't Do that it'd be like anyway anyway. So that happened. I guess that's but you know at least or maybe they could use that as a to push back on a talking point. That trump uses that. The DEM's don't do anything that does gridlock in Congress it'll pass anything that will I don't know anyway. They could hold it up. I don't think that's really. I think it's more just stayed literally. Want it and WanNa get it over with and you couldn't we couldn't into the presser on it like later earlier either two days anyway it was just weird to me. Maybe they're like we got to squish it. All under for the holidays are really wants to get out of town In more news related to all of this stuff the idea reports that I'm Lisa page sued the FBI DOJ OJ today for violations of Privacy Act for leaking her personal information to the media Back when it got had records of all the her text messages and phone calls between her. And Peter awestruck yeah it's almost it's not explicitly stated actually in the complaint from Lisa Page but the very clear location which seems backed up is that she was basically thrown to the wolves Sheehan struck return to the wolves by Rod Rosenstein to help himself out because he had to testify in twelve hours. We know that the the text messages were leaked by that. This is not like a leak by someone was authorized disclosure that the highest levels of the OJ agreed to do so they were given to Fiji spokesperson. Whatever she she brought the reporters onto a few like friendly outlets gave them a chance to look at the text and then take copies and then they went on articles in created like a hell storm that Ah gave Rosenstein cover the next thing so basically it was delivered choice radio leadership and Rosenstein to violate their rights to help themselves politically? Okay I guess my question is kind of what's appointed lawsuit I mean it's abandonment practice like. Why not she's tired of being punched around and she gave an interview view saying that she was no longer can be quiet and horizon? Where violated from anything? We've seen. So why do you think is coming now. I guess I'm just a little I think she's been quiet and hope to go away and it did not go away. Trump is not nonstop tweeting about her that she still constantly brought up so like actually being quiet. Not GonNa fix this so it's not gonNA sound like filing lawsuits to make sure your names in the news against already is so. Why not be proactive? And the cat yourself. I guess I mean the vindication. She's seeking it's not the vindication she could get through this lawsuit. I guess is the thing when you don't so whether she's given was awarded damages and it's found her favorite all that but that's she's not she's still going to continue to be attacked. I guess we'll uh-huh yes but it's yeah and reputation and trump seldom use it as a talking point she can get discovery was done. and Oh that'd be something. Okay all right anything else that we WANNA talk about. That little just happened in the last twenty four hours. There must have been something that happened over the weekend but I totally checked out this past weekend so if it happened I don't know okay so so yeah now we now. We wait for the vote on Thursday. I mean I think it'll pass. It's there's there are certain Dem's that are a little bit reluctant and worried so it's not a guarantee by any means. I think it's likely it will. Would you like to read the just now released a White House readout from the meeting with trump. Let's let's hear all right. We'll end with this today.
