the transcript leaked the failing New York times new easy now that happened the timing of that drums already tweeted out there he is denying Bolton's claims well yeah about this conversation saying I never told John Bolton that the aid to Ukraine was tied to investigations into Democrats including the bites in fact he never complained about this at the time of his very public termination if John bolt said this it was only to sell a book what about there's gonna be more leaked to well you better believe it for all said and done yes or imagine so so the Washington post this confirm that you know a couple people are saying yes this is what the transcript says that John Bolton claims that this is what trump told him and then you get Rudy guiliani out there who tweeted there's no way in the world president trump would say this to John Bolton it's a shame that a man will sacrifices integrity to make a few Bucks on a book no wonder he accomplished so little as national security adviser and then seven Gresham White House press secretary said the timing of this is very suspect president did nothing wrong we stand by exactly what we've been saying all along okay so they're going back and forth on that and again I'm behind and I might not be in a huge group of people but I know I'm not the only one that if you say and yeah I wanted to know some stuff about the bidens there because of a resume and two thousand sixteen and how did hunter Biden get that job with this energy company Joe had the relational hunter gets the job haven't you been saying this is how Trisha played from the start well listen no one should take my advice when it comes to how I know but I mean that it doesn't get you back on for a while you get money go yeah I said yeah I said these things here's what I said what he did give the transcript here's the reason why I said I'm yeah but I mean to a lever down even further yeah because he was saying well about leaks and the you know corruption in Ukraine all that sort of stuff yeah I mean just because he is now running for president that's what the Democrats are trying to prove that it's all because this happened we didn't care about Joe before but there are other reports yes he did he cared about the corruption because he felt like people were out to get him from the get go like Obama Hillary the whole Democratic Party and they were all in it together again where does this go he's not going to be removed from office well this should be interesting now because they're going to haggle over the with this thing yes right I mean and and obviously the Democrats want John Bolton that's number one but don't you think the deal is still if you're going to get John Bolton right are also going to get hotter by with that with that in fact push the envelope a little bit to say okay fine thinking you got the smoking gun here with John Bolton well there's already been Democrats out there to say Hey hundred bytes gonna take it for the team he's gonna have testify right okay but I mean what is Bolton is bold and now we're gonna be seen as adversarial already has but even more adversarial now where the Republicans are not going to go along with any type of negotiation for witnesses there's going to flat out say no well after trump's legal team is done with the case presenting its case then the senators have sixteen hours to submit questions that's according to the impeachment rules that were approved last week and then at that point senators will debate whether to call additional witnesses right the no vote on that it will require a simple majority to approve the issuing of subpoenas so that's where Mitt Romney earlier today raising eyebrows saying yeah I think we should hear what idea thanks Matt John Bolton essay on that he's always helpful met always helpful well when it comes to a guy like Matt right you're always wondering how many different Republicans have some sort of animosity toward the president from the

Trump denies knowing Giuliani associate Lev Parnas
"President trump is on the attack in predicting a quick Senate impeachment trial as the non-partisan independent arm of the government called the Government Accountability Office or Gao concluded that the trump administration broke the law when it was held security aid to Ukraine last year ear and CNN's Kaitlan Collins reports. Now the president is also continuing to deny that he knows a Rudy Giuliani associate who calls himself. Trump's asset in Ukraine today new revelations or complicating with the White House had hoped would be an easy senate trial very quickly to host a non-partisan partisan federal watchdog agency has determined the trump administration broke the law when it withheld military aid to Ukraine according to the Government Accountability Ability Office blocking that military assistance violated a law that limits the president's ability to withhold money already approved by Congress and faithful execution of the law does not permit the president to substitute his own policy. Priorities for those Congress has enacted into law today. The White House defended the move. Move by saying the nearly four hundred million dollars in aid was eventually released. I'm very glad that Ukraine got its aid and got it within the deadline. While officials aren't expected to be prosecuted for the violation. The release is fueling more questions ahead of trump's senate impeachment trial. This is a bombshell as we head into the Senate Trial Democrats say it underscores the importance of having witnesses and new documents and the trial this reinforces again. The need for documents and witnesses in the Senate the White House has spent the last several days finalising its defense but new revelations made by a recently recently indicted associate of Rudy. Giuliani's could turn their plans upside down today. Trump denied knowing love Parnis despite having multiple photos goes with him other than I guess pictures taken which I do. Thousands of people in the president was aware of his efforts to get dirt on the Biden's and was in close coordination with Giuliani. But today trump said he doesn't think they've ever spoken never had a conversation that I remember with him. I don't need the help of a man I and I never met before. Despite parnassus claim he did nothing without the consent of Giuliani when it came to Ukraine trump stood by his personal attorney. Today today is is somebody that frankly having him on my side was a great honor for me and it has been a great honor for me now Jake. Trump trump was also asked about a letter. That Rudy Giuliani had sent to then. Ukrainian president elect Zielinski saying that he had president trump's knowledge and consent to ask ask for a meeting with him. This letter released by House Intelligence Committee this week. Trump said he had no knowledge of that letter but really Guiliani had written written it and sent it. He you would not have a problem with it are Kaitlan Collins at the White House for his. Thanks so

Ukraine opens probe of possible surveillance of ambassador
"All of this information coming out about possible surveillance and alleged possible threats of a US ambassador to Ukraine. Where Eric is the secretary of State who was supposed to protect those ambassadors? Mike Pompeo as a member of congress was outraged endlessly about what happened to our ambassador Benghazi but he has nothing to say nothing to say in these last twenty four hours. Do you believe that part of the motivation to get rid of Ambassador to get her out of post was because She was in the way of this effort to get the government of Ukraine to announce investigations have Joe Biden. Those only motivation that was the only other. Donald Trump told the president of Ukraine in the phone. Call that got the president of the United States. Impeached that the American ambassador to Ukraine Marie amount of rich who donald trump had just removed was quote was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine. Were bad news so I just WanNa let you know. Oh that she's going to go through some things to donald trump on under surveillance through Guiliani and his associates including love partners. The evidence left handed over to the house. Intelligence Committee includes texts from trump contributor Robert. Hi to left harness. Yes that indicated Mr Hyde. How the ambassador under Surveillance Rachel? I love about that repeatedly. It appears to be giving you very specific information about the ambassadors movements about her location about her security situation calls the B word it over and over again. It's very hostile to her and seems to be monitoring her whereabouts. What why did those exchanges happen? What was he trying to tell you? I don't believe I think he was either drunk or he's was trying to make himself bigger than it was so I didn't take it seriously and I was trying to see. I didn't even respond to most of the time if I did it was like something. Lowell or okay or great or something like that just to because I wouldn't respond for a long time and then I didn't want him to get rowdy if I saw him next time and say well. Why didn't you type those texts? Were taken very seriously last night when they released last night by the diplomatic corps the United States all over the world. Dennis Schell Smith is a former career foreign service officer who served as ambassador to Qatar. In the Obama administration she held several positions in the State Department tours of duty posts around the world. She speaks Arabic Chinese Spanish and Hebrew and she knows the kinds of risks are ambassadors face including threats that she herself faced when serving as ambassador after the news broke last last night of the threatening language used in these newly revealed tax about embassador Ivanovich. Donna Shell Smith tweeted. Many ambassadors are used used to hearing about threats and various malign actors surveilling us. It's the fact that it was Americans plotting associates of the president put. That takes this just beyond January discussion. Now is former ambassador. Dennis Schell SMA. Thank you very much for joining US tonight. And I WANNA to get your reaction to the new evidence entering into this picture tonight of love partners saying oh no worry about it. That was all just a joke. Mr Hyde died is just a drunk and I didn't take him seriously. Mr Hyde himself appeared on another a network saying yeah I was drunk all joke. What is your reaction to that? It was is all a joke defense. Well thanks for having me Lawrence. I mean my reaction is that it needs to be investigated. I hope it was just a joke. I hope for that landscaper in Connecticut. who was drunk just happened to be texting about an ambassador in Ukraine and with very specific things like what her electronic devices were doing and the layout of the embassy buildings so yeah? I hope that was a joke but it really just does need to be investigated if we take it and think of it in a different context maybe from regions where I've served if you knew a group wanted you out of the way and then you saw that sort of text exchange change. I don't think anybody would be very relaxed about it. Can you imagine a in any previous administration a secretary of state being absolutely silent after the revelation of evidence like this Lawrence. I joined the Foreign Service when I was twenty one years old. I worked for eight secretaries of state. Five presidents I've seen leadership this is. It's unbelievable I know. I cannot imagine any secretary Terry. Having been absent every hour. That Secretary Peyot is silent or tweeting about other things is just. It's more unconscionable unsuitable and just a complete abdication of his leadership role or let's take a look at Rachel going at this issue again as I said she questioned about this repeatedly Let's listen to more of your questions about this questions about this. But the texts where he was supposedly reporting on the whereabouts of the ambassador went went on for a week. I mean it wasn't like one drunk night correspondent for seven days couldn't have been drunk the whole time of year old. He wakes up and is drunk he starts at six. I mean I've never seen him not drunk so you thought that this was him making it up. You didn't believe he actually had the ambassador under Alan. Absolutely so the defenses. It was a joke. He was drunk. But what you're calling for is an investigation. And I. I know if you were still an ambassador inservice. You couldn't be with us now. Having this conversation and calling for this investigation I have a sense that you are. We're speaking for ambassadors United States ambassadors around the world. Tonight they haven't asked me to. I may have the sense that I'm speaking for some of them as well. But I'm I'm here with my own opinion but I don't know how anybody could listen to that interview and not walk away and say there needs to be an investigation of the threat and of all of these surrounding issues You had an earlier guest talking about our foreign policy being hijacked by this group of people with no official role in no oversight. There's a whole host of issues that need to be investigated and I think anyone who cares about our national security feels that way and such an investigation would be under the jurisdiction of the Attorney General of the United States in the last hour in that interview. We just heard live police. Say The attorney. General William Bar is on the team. He was part of this entire endeavor of trying to influence Ukraine. How does that make you feel about the possibilities of investigation? Well I can't speculate on what might actually happen in an investigation. And I'm really grateful that Chairman Angle and the House Foreign Affairs Committee is is calling for an investigation as well and I believe planning to conduct one. But I will say having spent you know two and a half decades explaining blaming American institutions to foreign publics and talking about our justice system as the finest in the world and our system of checks and balances. It's heartbreaking heartbreaking actually to even contemplate that our system might not work and. I'm not talking about what the outcome is. I'm talking about an investigation and let the investigation happen and see where it leads. You investor Dan Shell Smith. Thank you for your service representing this country country around the world and thank you for joining us tonight really appreciate it thank
Parnas presented to Ukrainians as speaking on Trump's behalf
"You're really at the time was the general. The first thing I did this to introduce myself and tell them I'm here on behalf of really Giuliani beyond the president of the United States. And I'd like to put you on speakerphone for you. Know to confirm which we did we put you on. The phone rudy relate to him basically that we were there on behalf of the president of the United States. And you were there to speak on president. Trump's behalf exhibited those exact words. Mr Parnasse says that when he was taking meetings to advance this scheme taking meetings with various government officials in Ukraine he says it was a regular occurrence. It was the way those meetings started. He would put rudy. Giuliani on phone on the speakerphone in the room and he would say explicitly. Mr Giuliani would say explicitly that as the president's personal attorney he could affirm that left Parnis. was there air at that meeting. In Ukraine to speak on behalf of the President of the United States Donald Trump in May of last year may twenty nineteen. Mr Giuliani started speaking with reporters about his plans to travel himself to Ukraine to try to enlist the Ukrainian government's assistance to help hoped his client president trump. Basically in his re-election effort he said he was going to Ukraine to try to get them to announce investigations into Vice President Biden because that would be very very helpful to his client in the resulting firestorm of criticism. Mr Giuliani's trip was called off in May when he called off the trip. Mr Giuliani Johny made public statements. Criticizing the new government of Ukraine saying that Ukraine's new president was surrounded by enemies of the United States and for Ukraine that it was a really big deal right Ukraine. A country at war with Russia is a country very much dependent on both the reality and the perception of their having strong support from the United States government. And so when Mr Giuliani as the president's personal attorneys started making public claims the new Ukrainian president was surrounded by enemies of the United States of America. That's why he wasn't going to Ukraine at that point. The Ukrainian government kind of freaked out that kind of criticism from the new administration for their new new president in Ukraine. And that's a potential death sentence for their country so at the time that happened left part was in Ukraine in Kiev. At the time all of that happened and he told me today that he was tasked by Rudy Giuliani in that moment to crank up the pressure on the government of Ukraine to make even more insistent and obvious is an even more onerous this threat and this demand that Ukraine must announce investigations into Joe Biden. Or else it. Did you meet with Ukrainian official name. Sergei Schaefer Circuit Schaefer is a very senior aide to presidents Alinsky. It has been reported as far as we understand from public reporting that you conveyed to Mr Schaffer. The exact quid pro bowl that you wanted Celeski Alinsky to announce investigations into Joe Biden or military aid would not be released to Ukraine. Is that accurate. It was a little bit more than that Aw Basically The message that that was supposed to die gave Sergei Schaefer was a very harsh message that was told to be to give it to him in a very harsh way. A not in a pleasant way to give it to harshly mayor Guiliani Rudy told me After a meeting the president the White House he called me. His message was wasn't just military. It was all eight. Basically the relationships would be sour. You would stop giving him any kind of aid that unless that there was an announcement made several several demands at that point a the most important one is the announcement of the bite. Ministration did you also convey convey to him that the US government would stop showing support for mistress Alinsky. They wouldn't attend the inauguration those that was the biggest thing. Actually that was the that was the main Wasn't because at that time you have to understand the way you create now is for presents alinsky winning on that platform being a young president and not really having any experience the number one end being at war with Russia at the time the number one thing for them was not even eight and I know it sounds crazy but it was more of a support for the president resident by having a White House. Visit by having a big inauguration by having all the dignitaries there that was the key and at that time There were already aware because of their Conversations with the I guess what the embassy that President Vice President Pence was supposed to come to the inauguration was already discussed and they were replanning and now they were just working on days. That would be good for him at our meeting. I was very very heated. Conversation from our part to him. Basically telling What needs to be done? I mean basically me and at the at the at in the conversation. I told him that if he doesn't the announcement it was the key at that time because of the nation the pence would not show up. Nobody would show up to his inauguration unless he announced an investigation into Joe Biden No. US officials Dell's particularly vice president. Mike Pence would not come to do so the day after that meeting that you had on the twelfth. Aw I believe it was the following day that in fact vice-president pence is a visit to the inauguration was cancelled after my phone. Call the conversation conversation that I laid out to. Mr Schaffer was basically what I was told to do. By Giuliani of the president. And then afterwards I relate back to them saying that he's going to get back to me later tonight and we're supposed to meet then around eight o'clock or nine o'clock at night. I texted back against saying any word. What's the situation and at that point Because because
