Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine

"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

And Giuliani says this guy comes running running in wearing a crazy What I would say is a pink transgender outfit. Mind. I wanted to re phrase it that way that anyway, he immediately hey, didn't immediately recognize. Him. But, yeah, I called the police and didn't agree to the interview, also said he's a fan of some of his movies. He said Bora in particular, because I've been Tio. How do you say it? Kazakhs has six Don or whatever. All and he cited a line from the movie and he thought that was really funny.

Democrats wrestle with how hard to go after Trump's scandals

"A little more than four months until the election and the scandals that Democrats after they impeach President Donald Trump have mostly tried to look away from there now piling up and they do feel like they have to do something. I mean, it's just kind of an onslaught of scandals coming out of the trump administration right now so I think they want to be careful and how they go about this. They do want to investigate what's going on. They do want to call attention to it, but they're certainly not going to try to impeach the president again or try to impeach the Attorney General, although some members have called for that. Instead what we're going to see, is the hold hearings and for instance general. William Bar is going to come testify before the House Judiciary Committee at the end of next month. That's going to be a really big deal. You know I think for them. It's a fine line between. How do we call attention to this and also not step on our own electoral message, which is here's what we're doing for voters. Here's why you should bring us back. We're not just the party of investigating trump. We do actually want to get things done for you. Yeah I, want to jump into that in a second, but for those of us who have been living under rocks. Can you just quickly numerate some of the many many things that have? House Democrats up in arms that they they want to look into well. It's kind of an endless list, but. For instance the firing of the Manhattan prosecutor Jeffrey Berman over the weekend. He. The Attorney General issued a statement on Friday night, saying he was stepping down, and then Berman issued his own statements that what I'm not stepping down and then so bar had to actually fire him right, and that was this whole controversy this weekend, so the reason that people are speculating that bar got rid of. Berman was because his office in Manhattan has. Investigated a lot of trump related scandals everything from trump's former fixer. Michael Cohen Hush payments to. Porn stars, and then Rudy Giuliani the trump inaugural committee I mean you know a lot of links to the trump world, so that's one thing that they're definitely gonNA look into and it's. It's not too long ago. That an attorney general resigned over over questions of improper political influence over the hiring and firing of US attorneys select. That's that's a big deal. That's a big deal and that's one. I mean. Bar Is. There's a whole list of things with bill bar that I think I don't even know if they'll have time. They're hearing next month to get into everything. Because bar has really politicized the Department of Justice in a way that we haven't seen in some time and has taken steps. Many of his critics say to try to insulate trump from numerous scandals when they say that DOJ should be an independent body right so. That's one and then there's John Bolton's book which there's a whole string of allegations everything from the Ukraine scandal, which Democrats did impeach trump over to claims that trump requested China. Help Him in the twenty twenty election to other claims that he offered to help quote fix a problem The Turkish president was linked to a bank that was being investigated by the Manhattan Office that we were just talking about so there's a whole list of allegations in Bolton's book. They WanNa look into, and then you know the house. Judiciary Committee on. Wednesday had. Some whistle blowers from DOJ testifying about the DOJ's decision to You know to drop the charges against Michael Flynn. But also but also Roger Stone Oh my God. Oh Right? Yeah, no, there's so much! It's hard to keep track of anyways. There were two whistleblowers that testified before the house. Judiciary Committee on Wednesday about the DOJ decision to drop charges against Michael Flynn and other accusations that the Department of Justice recommended certain sentencing guidelines, which many considered were very light against. Against Roger Stone because of how close he west of the president, and that he was treated differently than other defendants, because of his relation to the president, so these are all things that the House majority is going to look into in the next several months in the run-up to the election, but are we going to see bill bar impeached or anything like? Like that. No, it's GonNa be more about hearings and television clips and things like

"This is impeachment a daily podcast from WNYC. I'm Brian Lehrer. It's Wednesday December eleven. We're at this weird moment right now. It seems to me where the whole thing is both extremely family. Dramatic but extremely predictable dramatic. Is that tonight and tomorrow. The House Judiciary Committee will be doing what's called the markup of the impeachment resolution. The thing unveiled yesterday. People on both sides should be giving us high drama or at least hydrogen from the House. Judiciary Committee predictable. Most people think is that it will pass. The committee on Thursday will pass the Democratic House next week and then it will fail in the Republican Senate early next year but what if something else happens. What if moderates come up with a censure but don't impeach resolution that could win a majority unlikely but new reporting waiting says a few people are proposing it or what if an even more direct smoking gun emerges about trump shaking Ukraine down? Or what if John Bolton is right and Rudy Giuliani turns out to be a hand grenade. WHO's GONNA blow everybody up? He means blow everybody up politically of course but a parallel a little story. Line right now to the official congressional proceedings is that Giuliani is doing what he considers a parallel investigation. It could turn out worse for trump then for the Democrats. Don't know so we'll talk about the Giuliani factor and more now joining us in the green space here at WNYC Andrea Bernstein and Ilya Marritz Co host of the WNYC and Propublica podcast trump inc which generally follows the intersection between the trump family.

"Was doing everything he did at the behest of the president. Did he do. Some things did out details or me with some people without doing long briefing of the president. I guess that's possible but I think that Rudy Giuliani was not being rogue the other reason why I think that argument doesn't hold water. Is You had multiple witnesses. This is talking about how things were vetted around what Giuliani was doing and in particular again obviously ambassador silent has a reason to make sure that he's giving the impression that everyone knew what was going on. Is that the defense of him. Because some people were beginning to throw him under the bus along with Rudy saying well you had silence and other folks they were kind of rogue someone very credibly in other areas not fully credible but in this area I think he was. He said over and over again in his testimony. The everyone was in the loop. I mean he used that phrase repeatedly and he kept talking about the things that he did with respect to Ukraine and you know the linkage between this for that as being at the direction of the president of the United States he does it over and over again so I think this idea that allies of the president have. It's a typical. You know strategy to blame some other person to have a fall guy. But that's just not with Rudy. Because of what Rudy himself would say really himself has said and what other witnesses like can bastards Tomlin have made clear the other thing about rudy himself might say he was on Fox News over the weekend and he people think he goes away but he doesn't I don't know he's he's always there and at some point he said I've seen things written like he. He meaning the president here is going to throw me under the bus when they say that A. He isn't but I have insurance. What did he make Rudy? Giuliani saying. I have insurance on Donald Trump. I don't you know he is then said Rudy has himself said it was as being sarcastic in funny kind of sarcasm. Well the reason speech. It's hard to. It's sometimes hard to explain Elaine.

I guess he will eventually be crazy not to and that doesn't I mean it's GonNa work but it's at least very fine arguable point right instead on Fox News he saying I got videos. Does I got pictures.

Yes I want you guys absorb that this is not rudy versus Democrats. This is rudy versus trump's state department and so they're fighting on television and say Oh yeah I got documents. Documents got documents. Oh Yeah I'll go show them the Democrats north to the Democrats here. I'll show right now on TV right so that's a great place to be if you want to find out more information about what trump did because apparently the the trump team is fighting internally as threatening to reveal all of it by the way if trump didn't do anything wrong. What is there to reveal? I mean this goes back to who trump constantly saying perfect phone call first of all. What's a perfect phone call? Have you ever had a perfect. Have you ever gotten that was perfect anyway so but he's a pervert phone. Call a Greek no problem you. The transcript of the call is in the in the secret service that you hit him in so JR released the transcripts. Let's find out how perfect it was right. Meanwhile Rudy's like I don't WanNa wake man announce. Tell Democrats now. I think that Fox News might stop booking him. That's why Laura Ingram shoot them off the air the other night. She's like stop. It's no wait a minute this. This is actually damaging trump. Yeah I remember Laura Ingraham though tried to brush it off as oh he's losing his voice. Go Get your voice back on but later he did come back on and then proceeded to continue incriminating himself and members of the State Department and so yeah look the infighting and I have no question because you know you're the one who went to Columbia law school year the fancy guy here. Please don't say anything. I know that there's attorney client privilege because Giuliani he is donald trump's personal lawyer. The Rudy Giuliani doesn't serve as the State Department's personal lawyer as a J. D. I can comment Anton this. I would really appreciate your expertise. No no no this is really simple. Of course he's the State Department's lawyer. He doesn't even work worked for the government. He doesn't work for the government at all. That's why it's a both a political ethical and legal issue the Giuliani's out there seemingly representing the United States of America when he is in no way shape or form even in the government let alone has authority within the government to make claims or promises on behalf of the American people so no he would not have have any attorney client privilege regarding the State Department any tax videos phone calls they sent him so when he says that on air he's getting himself and the state eight department in a world of trouble because when he song to trump who is his client there he could have attorney client privilege and protect that to some degree but would you know they should this fight internal but as usual incompetance reigns supreme in the trump administration the it exploded into the into into the national conversation. They made it public now. I don't think Julianne Giuliani has much of a choice. If you get illegal subpoenas from Congress saying you do not represent the State Department you said documents related to this issue from the State Department. Give me the documents. I think he's got to give him. I don't think he has a choice at all so he has until so October Fifteenth to hand over the documents that they're requesting Andy Chairman of the House Intelligence Oversight and Foreign Affairs Committees included -cluded this line or this paragraph. I should say in their letter they say your failure or refusal to comply with a subpoena including at the direction or behest of of the President or the White House shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the houses impeachment inquiry and maybe used as an adverse inference against you and the president and in regard to Guiliani he gives mixed messages so in the videos that we showed there was some indication that he's is willing to cooperate but via twitter he wrote quote. I have received a subpoena signed only by Democrat shares who have a pre judge this case case it raises significant issues concerning legitimacy and constitutional and legal issues including inter alia attorney client and other privileges. This is Jeff mentioned earlier. It will be given appropriate consideration so he has already thought of possibly citing attorney client privilege but as we just mentioned in summarize for you guys doesn't necessarily apply to some of the accusations he put out there about the State Department in the idea that hey hey listen Democrats that are asking for is totally irrelevant. so as we told you yesterday show other Republicans subpoenaed the Obama Administration over over a hundred times when they were in charge of Congress the Obama Administration didn't get to say yeah but that's because it's a Republican led Congress so I'll just ignore illegal subpoena. That's not how it works and Eric holder did once not comply with Congress and he got in trouble for in fact. I thought he should have gotten in bigger trouble for it and see that's the great thing about doing on a show. We we don't have to worry about partisan games so when they did the wrong thing we call it out every time when hunter binds on the board of that Ukrainian Gas Company he's on there because of his last name everybody knows it. The dishonest shows in partisan shows that the cover up fully fund he did he's a huge expert on oil and gas in Ukraine huge expert all right if you say so okay that's why independent meat is important dot com slash join okay plus we we have fun and I think that Giuliani is going to have to give up the old school I quit for my ten years ago when a woman was exercised about documents that were in our at the school that her daughter was was going in because who's worried about in the classroom in fact they had the documents wants to prove it. That was one of the videos. Could you imagine if Adam Schiff gets out there and he's like Rudy Giuliani. We're going to need those yeah. That's exactly how my mom would sound if she found out that there were students having live sex in the classroom thanks that was by the way total curveball did not expect that third curve balls all day long especially fifteen minutes before showtime all right guys we gotta take uh-huh and when we come back the inspector general for the intelligence community had to issue a rare statement debunking the conspiracy theories donald trump.

"Welcome back since he came into office. Donald Trump has had personal attorneys who work work outside of his administration. The most notable person in that position was Michael Cohen who left the role and later went to prison for tax fraud related to his work with trump in April of two thousand eighteen. Rudy Giuliani became trump's new personal attorney and occupied a similar role in kind of gray area not not part of the trump administration but deeply involved in trump's work and it's in this capacity that Giuliani starts actively pursuing Lukashenko's is claims so how does Giuliani pursue this investigation into the Biden's so it starts with this may trip that he tries to plan to Ukraine to meet with with the precedent there okay so I've decided Sharon. I'm not going to go to the Ukraine. You'RE NOT GONNA go. I'm not going to go because I think I'm walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president that's canceled because he's just getting hammered from all sides about the impropriety of a president's foyer going to meet with a foreign leader out although this wouldn't be the first time that he's done that while serving trump's lawyer but the next month he doesn't give up he goes to Paris and meets with with an official in the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office and then in July about a week before the president would talk to with the Ukrainian president in this now famous phone call. Rudy gets text from an official at the State Department. The person from the State Department who texted Giuliani is named named Kurt Volker the text said Dear Mr Mayor. Are you back stateside. Let's talk or get together who is Kurt Volker. Kurt Volker is actually also in a volunteer capacity to the US government. He's the US government's special representative for Ukraine. He's been serving in that job since 2017. You've worked with the State Department but it's not quite an official role. He checks in again two days later and then on July nineteenth nineteen. He says he really enjoyed breakfast this morning. As discussed connected you here with Andrew Euromac who is very close to President's Alinsky a suggest reschedule a call together on Monday maybe ten. AM or eleven am Washington time so volker offers to introduce Giuliani to a top aide a senior your adviser to the new Ukrainian President Zilenski and these people the Lansky and his aide. They're not connected to lose cheng-kuo right. The claims about Biden are not coming from them. Yeah and the timing of this text message is interesting because it's it's six days before trump is set to talk doctors. Alinsky but it also comes right after trump has directed a hold on nearly four hundred million dollars in aid that set to go to Ukraine in the fall. What's your interpretation of that timing. It's not clear who knows what at this point by. A good chunk of the funds are State Department Sutton and the other thing I would note is that Giuliani said that he doesn't become aware of the hold on eight until much later in the summer. Does the three way call happen and as far as we know the three way call happens. We don't know about the contents of this three way. Call between Giuliani the personal lawyer Volker the State Department armament volunteer and your Mac a top aide to Ukraine's new president but if any side were to bring up the claims about Biden it would be the US side remember there had been a Ukrainian election. Lukashenko was not in the new government and the new administration was not connected to his claims and then a few days after that call another call happens the call between the president of Ukraine and president trump this this is the call at the center of the current political turmoil and on this call trump is the one who brings up the claims about Biden and repeatedly tells the Ukrainian president to talk to Giuliani so it was really interesting to us that he's not only saying investigate investigate Biden but work with this person who's not officially in the US government and really has no official role other than to serve as his personal lawyer earlier in an investigation that at that point is dead but makes clear how eager he is for the Ukrainian government to do what Rudy is asking for and did did Zilenski people then talked to Giuliani yeah so your Mac the top aide. Alinsky and Giuliani meet about six days after the phone call in Madrid. This is a meeting that is cited in the whistleblower complaint and we know that Giuliani again takes these opportunities to bring up the Biden investigation to bring up investigation into possible election interference in two thousand sixteen and to press all these issues that are at the heart of this now now and how do we know that he brought those things up because he's told us this is Giuliani again after the call between the two presidents trying to get at the new Ukrainian administration to look into Biden and questions start to reemerge about whether in these meetings Giuliani was acting in an official capacity on behalf of the United States when he was not authorized to do so Giuliani has defended himself by saying the State Department knew what he was doing so the State Department has confirmed that cripple or connected the two of them the if not elaborated on what sort of briefings they subsequently got after this meeting so we have rudy's word that he told the State Department what happened after he met with them and based on the text messages that we've reviewed where the State Department or at least Kurt Volker is very eager to talk to him very polite very respectful. We don't have any reason to believe that rudy would think it was inappropriate what what he was doing. What is volkers interest here is he loyal to the State Department or is he loyal to trump he is more the State Department creature he someone who has a long history of working for the US government so he's he's more in that category in the whistle blower complaint released released yesterday the whistle blower pointed to the relationship between Volker and Giuliani Volker is mentioned five times in the Report Giuliani. Johnny is mentioned more than thirty and did you talk to Giuliani yesterday. Yes what was he like and is there contrition or is he still just. Gung gung-ho moving forward on his quest to get by investigated I would say contrition is not part of his vocabulary. He if anything is his doubling down on all of this now. He was extremely fired up both times. I talked to him yesterday. Feels like this is an inappropriate investigation. Education feels like he's doing everything right it one point yesterday. He texted me. How come I'm not a whistle blower so he definitely feels like the Democrats. Have just gone crazy that there's absolutely nothing to this complaint and his text to you. Why isn't he being considered. A whistle blower is because he he sees that him pushing this investigation into Biden that he's revealing some inappropriate actions that Biden took when he was vice president. Is that kind of what's underlying that exactly yes. He feels like he is raising an alarm about a a huge controversy and everybody is refusing to cover and what stands out to you as remarkable in Giuliani's role in this story. I think what's remarkable. Is that he had been. He got himself into trouble so many times but he always just managed inch flute passed it and it sort of never really bogged down. He made a lot of comments that would have sort of taken down any other boy at the president but he's managed to survive all of those the question here is trump gonna stick by him more or is he going to at some point have to cut him loose. If Rudy had never started consulting in Ukraine to think we'd be here right now. That's a good question I think the interesting part of this whole urging Ukraine to investigate Biden thing is that it is something that came from Rudy it doesn't as far as we know seemed to be some pet interest of the president so you know had he never met with Lukashenko learned all these details that he finds so damning about the Biden family and told the president about that it's possible it wouldn't have come up onto call.

"Prosecutor Muller seems to maybe have some doubts about that seems to think the truth is probably something different from what Donald Trump said during the campaign. And so according to the New York Times one of the questions that the special prosecutor asked President Trump to answer in writing is what communication did you have with Michael deco and Felix Seder and others including foreign nationals about Russian real estate developments during the campaign key phrase during the campaign and the answer is a lot according to President Trump's TV lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and that is a new public answer for Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump. And is it an it is an answer. That actually does confirm part of what BuzzFeed reported last week about Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen about what he will say when he testifies next month in a congressional hearing BuzzFeed reported that Michael Cohen will testify that he was actively engaged in discussions with Russians about at Trump Tower project through much of the presidential campaign and yesterday Rudy Giuliani nominally confirmed that aspect of the BuzzFeed story, but he took it a step further and included the possibility of discussions of Trump Tower in Moscow right up until the returns were coming in on election night. And that those discussions at any moment could have involved Donald Trump himself. Visually. A of course, has no doubt read the answer that President Trump's lawyers wrote in response to Robert Muller's question about this. And so it is very likely that Rudy Giuliani's answer is a preview to what we will see if we ever get to read President Trump's written answer and Rudy Giuliani's tour of the Sunday morning shows. He was of course, asked about the most damning part of last week's BuzzFeed report, which says that Michael Cohen will testify Donald Trump urged him to lie under oath in his first round of testimony with congress now special prosecutor's office on Friday issued a statement saying that at least part of the BuzzFeed article is not accurate here is what Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday when he was asked if the president's spoke to Michael Cohen before Michael Cohen, testified to congress. As far as I know President Trump did not have discussions with him. Certainly had no discussions with him in which he told him or counseled him to lie. If he had any discussions with them. They'd be about the version of the events that Michael Cohen gave then which they all believe was true. I believed it was true. I still believe it may be true. Because unlike these people who want to just believe him, I believe Michael Cohen is a serial liar. You obviously the president. But you just acknowledge that it's possible that President Trump talked to Michael Cohen about it's perfectly normal. But you just. You might have talked to him about about his testimony and show. What if he talked to is not? So what perfectly normal? Those two words that was Rudy Rudy Giuliani's job yesterday perfectly normal to try to convince America that it is perfectly normal for a president under investigation to talk to witnesses in that investigation before they testify under oath in that investigation. And of course, there is nothing perfectly normal about that just as there is nothing perfectly normal about the presidency of Donald Trump leading off our discussion now, John Halvard national affairs analyst for NBC news and MSNBC he's co host and executive producer of Showtime's the circus. Also with us glad Kirschner former federal prosecutor and an MSNBC legal analyst, and John it it does seem that when you if you stare at the Rudy Giuliani performances long enough, and if you rewind tape, and if you try to think it through you can sometimes find not only sometimes what that was all about like what? The mission was and it seems to me the more. I stared at yesterday's mission was perfectly normal normalized. The idea that Donald Trump was talking to Michael Cohen and others possibly during the presidential campaign throughout the presidential campaign about trying to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Yes, I think Lawrence the key element here is that you have to do it in phases. Because if you listen to Rudy for long enough, your brain is reduced mush. And then you reconstitute your brain into a functioning organ, and then you apply, and you can make sense of what he's trying to do..

"It was me. Dan autistic, which I don't think you look. I don't think you act autistic. I'm sorry. Say you look autistic. You don't actually have symptoms of it. You just sound it? Yeah, people make jokes about that. I wanted to. I said, you could say, yeah, Matt's call me autistic, you know what else? He calls autistic anyone. He's trying to call artistic. Because he has a specific. Yeah, he's is. He has a speech impediment. Yeah, he doesn't talk well folks. Well, either good showed him. Roasted days going on with the Giuliani Giuliani. Did you guys happen to see Rudy Giuliani today get very upset with Chuck Todd over the fact down the sunlight Giuliani was in the natural light of the studio in Atlanta. But yeah, Guiliani was saying that we, they were saying, why don't you want Trump to testify? And he said, well, because why should we let him do a perjury trap when you know what is perjury? Is it you know, he says, lying. So he was what is one truth versus another truth. He said, and then Chuck Todd said, we'll truth is truth. And the Giuliani said, no truth is not truth. And then you've literally saw Guiliani get really upset and like like kind of furrow is Brown. Like, don't do this to me. You divide by zero. He just gave himself a stroke and he just said, like, well, what if your drums says he did one thing and Mullah says he did another and you know who's to say, what's real. And the problem is like, that's not what how perjury works you. You don't get a perjury charge because one person says your line, you get a perjury charge if they can prove your line. So all right off the bat, Giuliani, trying to confuse what perjury even isn't trying to be like anyone is mean to me can just say, I'm perjurer. So it's that classic thing of like, we're, we're not gonna put him out there because it's a perjury trap, but he would never perjure, but there would set him up to do it, but he wouldn't do then he would perjure himself by accident because anyone by just being honest, could be sentenced for perjury, if other people are lying, which is a very to settle perjury. He can't tell the truth like Trump is incapable of telling the truth. Like I, I don't even think he'll admit to his own name like it's just like he lies about absolutely everything. And I think that that's why his legal team keeps saying it's a perjury trap just not so much that it's a trap, but the fact that since he can't tell the truth, anyone asking him a question is trapping him into burglary and I watching this, and I think we all kind of agree that Giuliani is showing some signs of dementia. I don't know who's going, I Trump or him. So much work that shit crazy. See, I think that Trump may Giuliani has surrogate on the news because he thought dementia was contagious, and he apparently felt that confuses Giuliani as he can confuse everyone else because that's essentially what Yuliana he's doing. It's just going out there, confusing himself and then hoping that that extends to everyone else who listens. He's just getting his reps in, you know, he's out a few rough sets out there, but hoping this open mic and these questions and answers. But I think that they're immediately sowing the seeds now so that when Trump does perjure himself, he'd be like, oh, it was a perjury trap, and then everyone who supported Trump will be like, oh yes, the famous term perjury trap, don't we all know it's totally fine purchased. Travis is kind of a dog whistle to his fan because what they're really saying is, do you like the president? Do you think what he's doing is right? You don't wanna see him in a trap to you. Do you think that when he, this is what it really is. Don't you think that when Trump lies every day he's lying..

"Diminishing returns has applied to Rudy Giuliani's performances on these Sunday shows because there was a there was a month or two where you can see Muller's approval numbers with the American people going down and Donald Trump's going up. But basically they've reversed and they're exactly where they were six, nine months ago too. So Robert Muller, in fact, over the past several months become a more trusted figure. Donald Trump is become a less trusted figure, and Donald Trump wins are Robert Muller wins in a landslide basically unjust about every question USA American people on pole. So I'm wondering whether Rudy's obvious lies are actually backfiring even with Trump supporters. I'm not sure if it's changing things with Trump supporters. Their calculation several months ago was the. Legal issues essentially don't matter because they don't think the president's going to be charged. So what can we do to try and impact the house of representatives? It's the only exposure. The president has a vote on peach mint. How can we make this confusing? How can we muddy the waters? That's what they were trying to do when they brought Giuliani on. And the president apparently is still happy with him because the president believes he needs advocates out there Giuliani's willing to do several shows a day and go out and push this message in the president believes he actually does it better than anyone else in his team. Now, at the same time, there's people around the president who say, look, this is not good that we have all these falsehoods coming out from the president's lawyer. This is going to backfire in the end, but they still haven't changed their strategy that prisons had two strategies so far on the investigation, the first one through the first several months, cooperate. Eventually not sick of it. It's now to be an tagging stick. It's hard to believe he'll move off of that, and that sort of worry is for now, but John meets him. Everybody knows. Everybody knows that Rudy Giuliani is like even truck. The most hardcore Trump supporter knows that he's lying. When when Rudy Giuliani said something like the truth isn't the truth. Then Republicans immediately go back to Bill Clinton saying, it depends on what the meaning of is is I just again, I, I don't understand even if you're a day traitor, how this helps Donald Trump. It's just that we're through the looking glass Giuliani seems to me that the Giuliani's not doing anything that he doesn't think Trump wants to do. You can hear Donald Trump saying it. I I keep keep it. particularly this John dean stuff this weekend. I keep having this image of we had the old image of Nixon talking to the portrait's. I see Trump talking to mirrors and Rudy, you know, he's just wandering around talking to himself and creating this. And I think I think Michael's, right. I think that this insofar as anything strategic about this operation which may be aggrandizing a good bit, but it has the effect of being the effect is is exactly this that they've created an atmosphere of kind of political quivalent of climate change is extreme weather. They press broadly put director Muller the facts, say x. they are going to say why and take their chances that the right number folks in the right number of electoral states agree with them. And to me in many ways, it's the most. Pernicious part of the entire era is the enemy of the people stuff about the media and the attempt the really the is not even an attempt at this point, but the assumption that you simply can fool enough of the people enough at the time to maintain this temporal hold on power, and it's a cynical exercise from the very top, it starts with Trump. It goes irradiates to a couple of these other forgive me New York tabloid figures, and because of an underlying anxiety in the country, it has worked nationally or at least certainly deeply enough sexually that we're going to have to deal with it. It's as David was saying a second ago, why the midterms tell us so much and you know, you get a certain number histories not gonna reward mayor Giuliani for the way. He's been his Sundays in. Seventeen to a neg-. It's. We're not so far beyond just Rimmer just well, we're, we used to just get a couple of these. The definition of is you use mid ago.

"And ashley you've written about this you've talked about it to some degree what does this about what could be an innate need for drama on the part of the president i think it says that it's inescapable we often write about the president sort of preferred method of governing and managing which is to do so in chaos and i think what you're seeing with the legal team right now is a microcosm of that there was a lot of talk when rudy giuliani came on people were a little skeptical but they were excited to have a big name excited to have an television tat attack dog and there was also excitement when the president brought at flood on that is a well respected lawyer who is a sort of person you want in the trenches with you when you're facing this sort of an investigation but the way the president has managed sort of not quite pitting one against the other but plotting strategy with rudy giuliani the flood and the rest of his team didn't know about i talked to an outside adviser today who basically described the other lawyers as simply baffled by what's going on this is the president's management style this is what he seems to prefer on he stated that publicly and articulate and it and it also seems to be an almost instinctual urge but you are seeing the downsides of that right now with his legal team barbara on that point ashley just made i want to show a tweet from someone we all know and a colleague of peter's maggie haberman tonight kind of put it very succinctly one person close to the white house sums up trump's legal strategy right now as two teams there's the trump rudy team and then there's the lawyers of elegant turn of phrase there but do you imagine right about now and that flood is really happy he moved all his stuff across town from his partnership and williams and connolly to a small office in the west wing i imagined he's quite frustrated to see rudy giuliani out on television after he himself says he's only about halfway through learning the facts of the case i mean no lawyer should be out doing that and there can be some very significant consequences of rudy giuliani as trump's attorney making these statements on his behalf those are statements.

"You said he was a regular arrangement you michael cohen so did michael cohen make payments to other women for the president no knowledge of that of but i i would think if it was necessary yes he made payments for the president he conducted business with the president which means he had legal fees money's laid out and expenditures which i have on my bills to my clients it was not a campaign contribution would have done anyway this is the kind of thing that i've settled for celebrities and famous people every lawyer that does that kind of work as according to rudy giuliani this was basically commonplace that the president had effectively extra marital affair slush fund that was administered by michael cohen and that he would just be expected to take care of these things they were a regular currence i mean that in itself should be very disturbing most people have means most people of wealth at celebrity they don't have extramarital affair slush funds and the suggestion is insulting so first of all i it's important for us at this point to blow up ally the donald trump and rudy giuliani keep spitting out there and giuliani keep saying this would have been paid anyway this has nothing to even if there weren't a presidential election this would have been paid anyway it bears repeating that donald trump and stormy daniels got together at least met allegedly had an affair in two thousand six.

"I think rudy giuliani jill rudy giuliani was being truthful when the other night i maybe maybe he wasn't again wasn't as artful or as delicate as he needed to be in his presentation but the the bottom line is that michael cohen was reimbursed apparently by the president with individual money not not campaign money your corporate money but his personal money he burst michael cullen i mean that's the story and i i always felt that was the case and i don't know anybody you know in the i i can't imagine many people in the country actually thought that you know michael cohen you know it was going to pay a settlement on behalf of his client without the expectation of reimbursement i just never heard of any lawyer who would do that congressman dan i appreciate your time thank you hey thank you anderson great with he was always we'll have more on this after the break included the big picture from legendary investigator reporter carl bernstein who's been out ahead of the story from day one and later live report from hawaii big island where a large earthquake just hit any volcano continues to erupt extraordinary images we'll show you a head nba playoff excitement continues on tnt the watch tnt an nba playoffs kirch tongue by five one be better when it's out where we live we're talking tonight about how little we still know about the circumstances surrounding the deal to silence stormy daniels shifting accounts statements clarifying nothing in the larger sense of chaos surrounding it a source familiar with the situation telling cnn the team is quote calling it one play at a time it says if the players are executing the plays on their own join us to talk about it cnn political analyst bestselling author and investigative reporter pearl bernstein so call the third point giuliani statement today was about the president's fire james komi giuliani wrote the dismissal of director komi an inferior executive officer was clearly within the president's article to power while that's certainly true earlier this week guiliani said the komi was fired because he wouldn't publicly acknowledge that the president one wasn't under investigation i'm wondering what you make of the evolving explanation here i think that what we're seeing all together is lying covering up cover stories and contempt for the rule of law again by the president of the united states now by rudy giuliani by.

"You know what he's talking about rudy is a great guy but he gets started day ago but he really has his heart into it he's working hard he's learning subject matter and he's going to be issuing a statement to started yesterday he'll get his back great giuliani has been working for the president for more than a week he didn't just start yesterday but that lie is relatively inconsequential what is important here is the larger issue of truth and whether you can expect their leaders to tell you the truth and whether they instead display disregard for it giuliani had said that his admission that the president did indeed pay the one hundred thirty thousand dollars to keep adult film star stormy daniels quiet that was quote carefully coordinated with president trump quote you won't see daylight between me and the president's unquote but that daylight cracked wide open today though very little was eliminated just minutes ago giuliani issued the statement the president referred to a statement on the stormy daniels hush money and repayment quote there is no campaign violation the payment was made to resolve personal and false allegation in order to protect the president's family it would have been done in any event whether he was a candidate or not so according to friday giuliani the coen payment had nothing to do with the campaign is that right thursday giuliani imagine if that came out on a of fifteenth join sixteen middle of the last debate with hillary clinton so to making way they they made this holy even ask cohen cohen made it go away he did his job in the middle of the last debate with hillary clinton seems pretty specifically related to the trump candidacy giuliani office stated today quote my references to timing we're not describing my understanding of the president's knowledge but instead.

"Donald trump told both joe in me that giuliani a little out of it was kind of losing it and would fall asleep at me i'm just you could see what he told us and i don't know if it played into why he didn't become secretary of state we certainly openly lobbied on the air for that not to happen because we also thought that was something different with him interesting is this is not rudy giuliani gone rogue this is rudy giuliani with the president's blessing would've ended after the hannah the appearance now he's out again and again including talking late last night to nbc news giuliani told nbc he made the admission after being told about documents that show proof of the payment to michael cohen from the president giuliani former us attorney accused law enforcement in the office that he wants lead of playing dirty saying i wanted to get out in front of the special counsel in the southern district of new york because at some point they would realize this information and leaked giuliani said i don't think the president realized he paid cohen back for that specific thing until we made him aware of the paper according to giuliani the president responded oh my goodness i guess that's what it was for i'm rudy giuliani nbc news he also spoke about serving trump's lawyers saying you're not going to see daylight between the president and me we're going to work hard to have a consistent strategy as for that strategy while giuliani insisted the revelation of the secret payments was to prove that trump and michael cohen did not violate campaign finance laws he ended up managing to tie the revelation directly back to the two thousand sixteen campaign.

"I feel very bad he's been victimized like this to president feels even worse the fact is just trust me they're gonna come up with no violations there all right you meaning the the payment believable mike eleven out of your reaction to that and this time rudy giuliani said that the president reimbursed michael cohen over a period of several months well lawrence you know this the plot thickens right so you know i certainly hope that what tool liani review giuliani is not suggesting is is that in fact to reimbursement took place over several months in an effort to avoid triggering a ten thousand dollar monetary requirement relieving the payments namely if they structured reimbursement payments and they can i don't have any basis to believe that they did but that that statement causes me great concern if they structured me and burst moments in amounts of less than ten thousand dollars in an effort to potentially avoid detection that's a serious serious problem that's called structuring and it's a violation of federal law it's a criminal act in order to do that so again i don't know if that's what he's talking about but it doesn't make any sense as to why this reversed we'd take place across several months just doesn't make any sense unless they were trying to avoid detection or there was some other reason that appears to be or would appear to not have a reasonable legitimate legal basis michael please stay by your phone because i have a feeling over the next several hours rudy giuliani the white house are probably in full panic mode right now about what rudy giuliani said in that interview he clearly was not prepared to go on sean hannity show and talk about the stormy daniels case in a way that was conforming to what the trump defense team is trying to do and so he may have created a whole bunch of problems that they're going to try to repair and we'll be hearing changes in what rudy giuliani has to say for sure tomorrow morning or through the day tomorrow mike levin thank you very much.

"That robert mueller in his staff are not being fair giuliani then went on a rambling interview calling the muller investigation a witch hunt calling it a perjury trap for the president using all donald trump's own language about it saying that it was that the president could be trapped not saying that the only way perjury trap can work is if the president decides to commit the crime of perjury giuliani also attacked what he called his old friend attorney general jeff sessions and he attacked deputy attorney general rod rosenstein everything rudy giuliani said tonight suggests that he will advise the president not to submit to an interview with robert mueller because the muller investigation is as giuliani cons at calls it tonight unfair and a witch hunt sean hannity kept that interview going longer than was safe for rudy giuliani rudy giuliani then wandered into what i've already referred to as these explosive revelations about the stormy daniels case including that donald trump did indeed know that michael cohen was handling these kinds of things like the stormy day no case for donald trump and was doing it all the time and the donald trump reimbursed michael cohen for that hundred thirty thousand dollars we will get to that stormy daniels michael cohen trump reimbursement bombshell later in this hour mike eleven ati will join us with his analysis of that but here is a look at how rudy giuliani explained why the president fired james komi.
