US implicates Saudi crown prince in journalist's killing

"I'm anthony davis saudi arabia's crown prince likely approved the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi inside the saudi consulate in istanbul. According to a newly declassified us intelligence report released friday that instantly ratcheted up pressure on the biden administration to hold the kingdom accountable for a murder that drew worldwide outrage. The intelligence findings were long known to many us officials and even as they remain classified have been reported with varying degrees of precision but the public rebuke of crown prince. Mohammed bin. Salman is still a touchstone in us saudi relations. It leaves no doubt that as the prints continues in his powerful role and likely ascends to the throne. Americans will forever associated with the brutal killing of a journalist who promoted democracy and human rights yet even as the biden administration released the findings it appeared determined to preserve the saudi relationship by avoiding direct punishment of the prince himself despite demands from some congressional democrats and kashogi allies for significant and targeted sanctions. Saudi arabia's foreign ministry responded by saying the kingdom categorically rejects the offensive and incorrect assessment in the report pertaining to the kingdom's leadership democrats in congress praised the administration for releasing the report the trump administration had refused to do so but urge to take more aggressive actions including against the prince representative adam schiff champion of the house.

Biden Admonishes Trump Administration Over ‘Obstruction’: How Serious Is It?

"In the past. Complaints about presidential transitions have actually being quite funny. Do smeared on desks, missing door knobs, taking all particular letters off keyboards? That kind of thing, sort of lighthearted, joshing us Suppose between one American administration and another Certainly not funny this time around on the U. S. President elect Joe Biden seems to have finally lost his temper. He's made a speech explicitly accusing the Pentagon of acting irresponsibly because they're failing to cooperate, he says with the Biden transition team, they're due to take over course on January, the second In a speech, Mr Biden said that particularly the political leadership of the Defense Department were being obstructive, and it meant that his team wasn't getting crucial information on key areas of national security. We've encountered roadblocks on the political leadership at the Department of Defense and the Office of Management and Budget. Right now. We just aren't getting all the information that we need. From the outgoing administration in key national security areas. It's nothing short in my view of irresponsibility. Well, how genuine is the risk? Because Mr Biden said that it's making it more difficult to protect the people of America who is speaking about this a little bit early with Hugo Lowell, whose national political reporter and contributor at political So this is really now becoming a pattern of obstruction, I think from the Trump administration and the president elect said earlier today, the Department of Defense, which in many ways is the most troubling of all, since the political maneuvering here, could have real far reaching consequences for national security. But Dear Dee, in particular has been a real thorn in the side of the transition team. They've holding meetings Previously, they've claimed that previous meetings that were canceled work by mutual agreement. This turned out to be not the case with public translator walked back these claims and when the head of the meeting, so it has been great, tumultuous for the National Security Review team's on what is Biden saying that his teams of feeling the lack off I mean classified analysis. How serious is this? Because then they know most of this stuff anyway. I think it is quite serious, and I think the bottom team don't like to criticize theme administration because he ran on this message of unity, but we can pursue some clues from what the president elect said today. No. First of all that you can't get a picture of the military's operations around the world, which is significant because this Trump administration wants to draw downs and various theaters. He's also saying You can get insight into budget planning that he's going to inherit, so there are a number of key areas. Operationally that the bottom teams say didn't have any insight into and other naming names. I mean, he's been pretty explicit his criticism. But does it mean that there are particular people in particular jobs who aren't helping? Yeah, it's a really good point. I think a lot of transition aides point towards individual called Kush Batteries, a Trump loyalist to was appointed as the Pentagon chief of staff in the days after Trump lost the election, and there was a purge of personnel. From the department is the same Kush battle that worked to discredit the Russia probe into election difference in 2016 as an aid to Devin Nunes was on.

Democratic leaders blast Trump's pardon of Flynn

"President Trump has pardoned former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in connection with Trump's Russia contacts before the inauguration. Flynn later tried to walk back that guilty plea, NPR's Ryan Lucas has more. Flynn became a rallying cry of sorts for Trump and his base and allies on the hill, who have felt that he was unjustly prosecuted. They welcomed this part. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a key ally of the president, for example, called this pardon of good move. Democrats. On the other hand, unsurprisingly declared this corrupt. The Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, said that this was an abuse of the president's pardon power. He said that Trump is using it to reward his friends and political allies and protect those who lied to cover up for him. NPR's Ryan Lucas

"I think in this interview where you saw deep frustration and very very light hint of anger and one of them was. We started talking about Fox and the role Fox plays and I think that it's deeply frustrating to chairman shift based on all the work they've done and how serious they think this is so looking ahead to what will almost certainly be a January trial in the Senate. How long you think it'll take well. Republicans are signaling. They WanNa do this as quickly as possible. It seems like trump and McConnell can't get on the same page. They're definitely not the same page. I think what McConnell would like to do is have opening statements from the house managers a series of opening statements from the President's defense team. Whoever that is very soon it's Baloney. Maybe Alan Dershowitz As has been reported which is bizarre. I mean you'll have people hanging Jeffrey Epstein banners from the Senate Gallery but trump general gets what he wants no matter how crazy it is and then I think McConnell will entertain and put on the floor motion to dismiss Which this is a political exercise not a legal exercise but our put this question to you. I view it as after the prosecution is put on its case. According to watching law and order sometimes the defense stands up and motions dismissed because they didn't reach any standard of proof and judges sometimes say okay. You didn't trials over right. We may end up there eventually. I think to chairmanships point. There's going to be several moves. And maybe a trick or two up his sleeve to try and get the actual investigatory material that they haven't been able to get yet and to his point. They actually wrote their report and submitted. All of this with very few documents So there's a lot more out there to get that I suspect will come up in the trial. Yes so again. You know from a strategy point of view McConnell. Any may not have the votes to do a motion to dismiss one of the real dramas in the nineteen ninety. Nine Senate trial was Robert Byrd Senator Byrd from West. Virginia'S MOTION TO DISMISS. He wrote a motion to dismiss. Where right at the end of it said I? I moved to dismiss the charges but the first fourteen pages of it were excoriating Bill Clinton and like in terms that nobody had seen before It was so harsh and the problem was that he a bunch Democrat said. I can't vote for that I. I don't believe those things about the president. I believe he made a stupid mistake and we should give them a longtime out as PRINOS president and punish them but I don't believe he is the character that that bird was describing and it was a lot of back and forth and bird finally in in frustration said fine. I'll take it all out. And he did a straight motion to dismiss it fails and they move forward. Republicans presumably could have the votes to dismiss this pretty quickly and not even take the vote. Now the problem is and you alluded to it earlier. That's not what Donald Trump wants. Donald Trump wants to reality. Tv. He wants Hunter Biden on the floor. He wants Joe Biden on the floor. He wants a lot of drama. He wants a lot of people to watch and at the end of it he wants someone to stand up and say. Donald TRUMP NOT GUILTY ARTICLE WANT DONALD TRUMP not guilty article to and the single most interesting thing to watch after the New Year will be. Where's Mitch McConnell and where's Donald Trump? I will say this in nineteen ninety nine. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle did what was best for the Senate and took a lot of heat a lot from his own caucus daschle from the White House including me publicly. But they did the right thing for the Senate Mitch. Mcconnell doesn't care about the Senate he doesn't care about the institution and its role in the country We saw that when he to prive. Barack Obama of his constitutional right to appoint Merrick. Garland what. Mitch McConnell cares about first and foremost is being the majority leader. And he's going to do what keeps him as majority leader and right now the most important thing on his mind is he's got six Republicans incumbents who are in tough races and if he comes to the conclusion that the best thing to do is do a quick trial and then dismiss it quickly without even taking up the votes even if that enrages Donald Trump. He's going to do it. The question will be whether he has the votes because trump does have a lot of sway with Republicans other Republicans in the Senate. So it's GonNa be fascinating to watch the majority in the house. It was terribly frustrating for Republicans because the Democrats were in the majority in the Senate is going to be terribly frustrating again for the Republicans because the rules are different. And it's much easier to be the minority and gumming up the works Where you have real ability to come up works as opposed to just two four shots of Red Bull and start screaming the way Doug and Jim Jordan do and the hardest job in America over the next couple of months is not going to be a house manager. Or you know the White House counsel it's going to be Mitch McConnell's Joe Well. We'll see what happens. We are grateful to chairmanship for sitting down with us.

"Our guest today is chairman of the House permanent. Select Committee on Intelligence Congressman. C'mon Adam Schiff is in his tenth term representing California's Twenty Eighth Congressional district before that he was a member of the California State Senate where he served as chairman airman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Congressman. Schiff began his career as an assistant. US Attorney in the Central District of California chairmanship. Welcome welcome to words. Matter so Mr Chairman you have served nearly two decades in Congress but before that you were California state Senator and a federal prosecutor which is very high profile public life but in the last year really in the last couple of months your name has become the household name and not just as a political figure but as a cultural one. So can you talk a little bit about what that's been like for you and your family on a daily basis and how that's changed for you certainly you know I find that. I'm a human focus group now wherever I go and particularly airports people are more than willing to give you you their thoughts in a very unfiltered way at airports because they expect they will never see you again most very good that which is negative is very negative. If so I do prompt very strong reactions from people. I also have an appreciation for what a lot of my constituents lives are like because I literally represent Hollywood and and so I now know the phenomenon of being in a restaurant and my wife saying those people are staring at you and these people are staring at you. But I'll tell you my favorite anecdote about me into my sudden. Recognition was walking down the street in New York with my daughter who's in college and I'm wearing blue jeans and a canvas jacket and sunglasses and I don't look anything thing like I do on TV. And I'm Kinda surprised that people are stopping me and she's kind of annoyed because in our family there's only one center of attention and it's her and the last straw was when somebody at an outdoor restaurant asked her to hold their beer while we took a picture together and as we walked away She said what am I now the beer holder and I said Alexa. I'm just shocked that anybody can even recognize me and without missing a beat. She says well you know Dad. It's the the pencil neck. So that's what you get from your own kid but It's called genetic humbling. It is a a good title. Who could stuckey me grounded? And that's good so. The House is currently considering. Two articles of impeachment against President Trump won for abuse of power and one for obstruction of Congress based on the factual foundations. And the work that your committee did and the House Intelligence Committee's report and in that same team report you also detail Some activity and involvement vice president pence and conclude that he either acted with knowledge or perhaps was an active participant in the factual underpinnings that are being discussed as a part of the impeachment articles. Now do you believe the vice president pence violated his oath of office. Will I believe there's a lot more that we need to learn about. What the vice president new and whatever complicity might have I will say that Jennifer for Williams who worked on his staff works on his staff still On assignment after she testified And during her open testimony said she had a classified submission to make. She has made that submission. We do not think that there is any proper basis to classify of that information. We have asked that the vice president declassify defy it. We think the country should know members of Congress should know and we will continue to pursue that But there are any number of questions that remain unanswered even though the evidence of the presence abuse of power is overwhelming. We still have questions about How much the vice president may have been evolved? How much the secretary of state was involved we do know from the few documents? Were able to get not from the State Department. which has given us zero but Gordon Sunlen came into his testimony with documents showing that yes everyone was in the loop including the Secretary of State and obviously there are those that are really at the epicenter like Mick Mulvaney you who have refused to testify? And of course the entire agency of the and the White House and the State Department and Defense Department have all refused or document requests so we continue the investigation even as we move forward the articles so in the Nixon impeachment. The question was what did the president no one did. He know it in this case with the president we know what he knew. And when you because he told us in the transcript but is that a legitimate question for the vice president it is legitimate question for the vice president and the point you make Joe I thought was so powerfully made by Swale well during the hearing I was particularly struck by something as I watched just a replay of the president and the White House lawn when he was asked. What did you hope for when you ask Dolinsky that favor on July twenty fifth call and it it was really questioned because of course we didn't have the call record until months later was a question about what did he want when he asks Alinsky for that favor but the present and answered it in the present tense and made it abundantly clear that he is still asking you to do these investigations as the president said it's a very simple answer and that very simple answer is essentially the president is still trying to get foreign interference in our next election? Which is why we felt that? So imperative to move forward with these these articles because the usual remedy for a bad precedent. Voting amount of office doesn't work when the president destroyed to cheat in that very election. So there's some in the media who think and have talked about on? TV about how. Somehow these hearings didn't capture America's attention he's worked for the NFL and at the Super Bowl. We always knew we couldn't guarantee that game we always knew about halftime So my last serious question is did you think about maybe bringing lady Gaga for the recesses. More serious question is looking back. Do you think there's some way you might have done it differently or is this. Just say a methodical thing that over time the public public will get. Well I would say a couple of things. First that the investigation really did move people and very substantially it all depends on where you put the starting point when we began our investigation when we began the depositions when witnesses began to release their testimony they're written statements in those depositions at the beginning of that process. The country was substantial against even doing impeachment investigation fifty five to sixty percent of the country. I thought there shouldn't even be an impeachment. Investigation three months later avow. Those numbers have completely flipped. There had never prior to this investigation. A majority of Americans who I believe that not only should there be investigation but the president should be impeached and removed from office. There is now a narrow majority that believes that to be true. There has been I think a settling in of that movement towards impeachment. And what we have seen is that those that have been paying. The closest attention have been. Those was that have moved most substantially towards impeachment. But there is a group albeit Not a large group but probably about fifteen percent of the public. It has not been paying close attention to this because they're just trying to get by like a great many people. Here's American families are just trying to put food on the table and provide for their family and they can't you know Ford to stay home all day and watch a hearing. It is my hope that we can make the case to those that have not been paying close attention that they have every every right indeed they have every need to expect from president nited states that they put the interests of the country ahead of any personal interest that they're not abused their office to interfere to seek to cheat in an election and furthermore that the Congress must provide a check on any precedent precedent by doing its oversight work and if a president refuses to allow Congress in Equal Branch coequal branch to do that oversight that is important independent basis for that presence removal so I think one of the going to that point one of the underappreciated parts of this is not who has testified but who has not all the people with the first hand knowledge. What went on if you ran the world and could compel one person involved in this with the exception one of the president? Who would you like to put under oath and ask all of these questions off? Well that's a good question. I don't know that I could identify a top choice But I would say that if articles are returned in the House as I expect that they will be there may be an opportunity in a Senate trial to hear from from witnesses that have been unwilling to come forward and perhaps even more substantially We may finally get the documents that the president has ordered not be provided to Congress It is going to be very difficult. I think for senators to oppose a subpoena for documents. they would have to essentially say we're not interested in seeing the evidence so we may finally get the documents administration been withholding. I can't say that for sure. We may finally have access to some of these witnesses and I certainly think that John Bolton has very relevant testimony and people like Mick Mulvaney very relative have testimony and others as well now Mitch. McConnell is going to have a lot of say in what the Senate try looks like. And whether it's a credible trial or whether it's an attempt to whitewash in the president's percents favor but if the senators uphold their obligations to faithfully execute the laws themselves and their constitutional duties to get these soot witnesses and documents that the administration has made such an effort to stonewall if there is a trial in the Senate you very well may baby house manager in that trial. This is certainly not the first case you've prosecuted. Would you consider you mention John. Bolton and Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney We talk about Jennifer Williams. Would you also consider are calling the vice president himself. I don't want to first of all the way up. The speaker who the house managers are so i. I don't want to predict that. I do think whoever the managers are they will want to seek additional documents and testimony. There's a big question about How Mitch McConnell is going to structure these proceedings? And whether he's going allow witnesses and and what kind of witnesses and how the senators are going to be prepared to vote. Are they going to be prepared to vote to hear the evidence or or not. Are they going to try to bring an extraneous issues so it's very difficult to predict and You know I don't want to prejudice. What the managers may ultimately ask in terms of witnesses and documents but the extraordinary thing about the investigation that we were able to do? Thus far is a complex white collar criminal case Jason. This is very much like a complex white collar. Criminal case is generally a very document driven. Enterprise we you've made this case with almost no documents now. We did get a batch of documents from Volcker on the process and we got a smattering of documents documents. Here and there from people like Bass Onlin but given that we've just seen a fraction of the documents and how incriminating those documents have been there. There is a wealth of other information that the White House does not want the Congress to the American people to see And so the question that really will hang over. The trial is will the American people in the Congress. Be Able to see this important evidence or will McConnell tried to keep it from the public. My Day job is is working as a a white collar defense attorney so I have spent much of my time steeped in documents the type of which you talk about so I certainly understand the challenge of making a case without the documents but let me take you back in time for a minute and talk about How we got here in a Republican talking point at the moment in two thousand three? You voted in favor of the invasion of Iraq. And then later you were asked if you regretted that decision and you said absolutely unfortunately our intelligence was dead wrong on that one of the Republican talking points on impeachment is that despite the unanimous conclusion of the US intelligence committee that it was Russia that interfered in the two thousand sixteen election that it was in fact Ukraine and the intelligence community is just wrong. So how do you respond to Republicans who say well if our intelligence could be dead wrong on Iraq. Then why can't it be dead wrong on a Russia Ukraine and the two thousand sixteen election. I've actually never overheard Republicans make that argument That the intelligence could just dead wrong. They don't they simply say we're entitled to our own. Alternate alternate facts. That's really the argument that they're making that maybe the intelligence community is right but why couldn't be Ukraine to now never mind. There's no evidence of of that. We would like to put that out there anyway and the the amazing thing about this that the terrible thing.

"house intelligence committee" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell

"And begs for a big win in a republican state and once again the Republican Donald Trump campaign for loses this time in Louisiana but this time Donald trump actually did something something after that loss that we've never seen him do before hey MSNBC listeners. It's it's made Chuck Rosenberg this week. On the oath I sit down with Roberta Jacobson the former United States ambassador to Mexico on a day to day basis Canada and Mexico Co Affect more citizens of the United States than perhaps anywhere else in the world. Roberta Jacobson has spent her professional life in service to the United States. In her case case by advancing its interests abroad responsible for the operation of the US embassy in Mexico and for the crucial relationship with our large and vibrant neighbor to to the south. It's very much bringing America to the world and bringing the world back to America. Please join me for that conversation with. Roberta Jacobson the former former United States ambassador to Mexico. That's this week on. MSNBC's the oath available now wherever you get your podcasts. President trump was mysteriously rushed to Walter Reed Military Hospital on Saturday afternoon. Louisiana was voting for their next governor. Donald Trump went to Louisiana three times the last month to campaign for the Republican candidate for governor and in his final argument to Louisiana voters. Donald trump was reduced to begging taking in Kentucky. We elected everybody and the headlines next day trump took loss lift him up. So trump tacoma. So you gotTa give me the big wind please. Okay okay. Louisiana did not give him a big win when the votes were counted. On Saturday night Louisiana voted to re elect their democratic governor. John Bel Edwards. We had no idea Saturday night whether Donald Trump even knew this us whether he knew he suffered another election defeat in another governors election and another otherwise republican state and we had no idea whether he knew it the next day because Donald Trump has been seen by no one since he was taken to the hospital for a few hours on Saturday. The White House press secretary who has never held a White House press briefing and has been caught not telling the truth about many things. Says the president is just fine and today although the president remained invisible he did make a proof of life. Phone call to Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards an uncharacteristically offered his congratulations to the latest Democrat to run against trumpism and win. Jared Kushner now is Jim Messina. CEO of the Messina Group. He was the deputy chief of staff for President Obama from from two thousand nine to two thousand eleven and campaign manager for President Obama's reelection campaign in two thousand twelve. Jim Thank you very much for joining us tonight. Really eager since on Saturday night to get your read of what happened in Louisiana for Donald Trump on Saturday. Well a couple of really interesting things. First of all Democratic turnout was through the roof in New Orleans up twenty nine percent over the primary And second in the two Congressional districts of Donald Trump visited did the Democrats actually did better from the primary to the General Governor. Did better in those two places at Donald Trump visited meeting a couple of things Lawrence one. Donald Trump continues to drive democratic turnout to. He probably did help his candidate with their own turnout. But these swing voters are actually deciding. These elections are are moving away from Donald trump in record numbers. I mean Louisiana is a state that Donald Trump carry by twenty points. Kentucky's state we're Democrats or so you were president trump carried carried by almost thirty points. And yet you're seeing big democratic turnout and then swing. Voters moved to the Democrats in ways that we haven't seen in a very long time Lawrence so jim there's an interesting phenomenon here in what you're identifying what these trump visits and it reminds me of when I was working in the Senate for a northeastern liberal senator he I would say to other Democratic senators in more conservative states outcome and campaign for you or I'll stay away. Whichever will help you the most I? Donald Trump doesn't seem to understand that it's possible that staying away could be the best thing he could do for Republican candidate because because Lawrence it's always about Donald trump right. This is never been about anyone but him and he loves his rallies. He loves seeing his people and he has a great time. But you know over and over again. He is driving independence and Democrats to the polls to send him very loud message and his candidates are getting being slaughtered. You remember in two thousand eight when the Obama campaign announced. We're going to compete in Virginia. And everyone said you can't carry Virginia. You'll never win we now I WANNA twice you. Look at the turnout. Numbers in Virginia for for Republicans and they are the worst we have seen in a generation and then on the the other side. Democratic turnout is huge. Young voters eighteen to twenty nine turn out in Virginia in the most recent election was up three hundred percent and it's not all because we have amazing. Democratic candidates is in part because of the country wants to get rid of Donald Trump and they're sending that message over and over again in local elections elections across this country. Jim Messina. Please stay with US across this commercial break because we've just been handed a statement a new statement from the White House from the president's and doctor and as a White House veteran. I just WANNA get your interpretation of what might be going on with the President and the President Dr. We'll be right back. The White House has just released a note from the president's doctor and it's from Dr Shawn Conley and it says that the president was treated on Saturday for a routine planned interim checkup. As part of the regular primary preventive care he receives leaves throughout the year he end after apparently watching CNN tonight where they had a doctor David Scheiner on. Who Was Barack Obama's is physician in Chicago? Before Barack Obama became president David China referred to the possibility that the president had a cardiac issue or even a neurological issue. This this is a direct response to that This letter says this note says the president has not had any chest pain nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent agent or acute issues specifically he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurologic. Evaluations a Jim Messina Xena is back with us. He is a former deputy chief of staff and the Obama White House. Jamuna how presidents are deal with doctors and deal with physical exams. The how does this all read to you Not Great Lawrence. You know one of the reasons why I love your show is. You're very careful about words and if you look at the statement they said routine routine planned visit and that one sentence later said because a scheduling a regularities. We did this. We wanted it all to be off the record. You can't To have both of those things be true and if it was a routine plan thing you'd never do it at Walter Reed. You would have done all that stuff at the White House facilities which are state of the art an amazing If it was just routine stuff you never would've taken him out. And if you're GONNA take him for a routine visit to Walter Reed. You would have announced that you had had a bunch Would have had a photo with the troops. She would have done a bunch of things that are regular to do the second problem Lawrence is. This is the problem when you have a White House lies lies about everything is you can't believe about anything I mean. As you know during the campaign they trotted out his personal doctor to issue a statement with which we later no was written by trump himself and it was completely garbage and then we had the famous. Ronnie Jackson press conferencing. He was the healthiest president of all time when clearly. That's not true. So you just have an absolute sense at all of this is lying and when you trot out a ten PM memo from a doctor are you know that there are likely worried about something and the problem. The problem is the truth is probably that there's something nefarious going on and German quickly before we go. There's is the additional element of we have not seen the president. And when this kind of controversy erupts one of the very first things I would think you would do is say. Let's get the President On-camera let's show him. Let's show that he's doing just fine and that's something. Donald Trump inviting in the cameras is something. They do all the time but not since he's gone to the hospital title favorite thing in the world him being on TV is what he loves more than breathing. So the easiest thing would be to trot him out you know at the White House and do a quick anything would be easy. And why didn't they do that. And you know when you start having unnamed doctors trying to cover something up you start to wonder under what's going on in the White House again Jim Messina. Thank you very much for joining us with your expert opinion on this and other matters appreciate it and when we come back back Donald trump could be facing punishment for apparently lying to special prosecutor. Robert Muller that may.

"And the Washington Post a simile the Justice department is held up or oppose the merger of the parent of CNN is this driven by what would be and completely atypical of you of antitrust by this current Justice department, or is this an effort to punish an I think we ought to find out, but that won't be with an arc minister diction it will be within one of the other committees. And they will have to decide is that as important an issue as any number of other things that are equally meritorious. So that's what I mean you could. Easily come up with a long list of things that we ought to be concerned about in a normal administration would be worthy of an intensive investigation. But because of the the complete dearth of oversight of the last two years as well as just how scandal plagued this ministration is it means we won't be able to do everything. One of the things, you know, people forget this in the current environment. But the house intelligence committee, first and foremost is not an investigative entity. It's first and foremost policy and oversight Anne, and I'm would be derelict in my law, fair responsibilities. If I didn't ask you about your policy priorities with respect to the normal business of the house intelligence committee over the next couple of years. Well, and let me give you an illustration. And we always conducted investigations, you're right. We're not typically viewed as investigative body, but you know, some years ago we conducted under Rogers groupers burger investigation of while way. Z T. E were these Chinese firms a threat to us from a counterintelligence point of view semi one issue that I'm greatly concerned in which we're going to be continuing to investigate is whether we have serious supply chain concerns with technologies that we are purchasing from China. And does that call for us to take a far more aggressive steps to create our own independent supply chain as it reached that level because that would be a rather mammoth policy decision where we make and what's your instinct on that is is the is your working hypothesis that? Yeah, we're at that point where we need to seriously consider that or is this a sort of more defensive wanna make sure we're keeping track of the situation. But your instinct is that we're not at that point yet. Well, my instinct is that we may very well get to that point. If we're not there now that just as. As we have been reliant on the Russians to get us to the space station, we are increasingly reliant on Chinese firms to make components that could be used against us. And that's a rather enormous undertaking. If we're going to do what's necessary to limit that reliance. So it's not something that you do without a thorough throw investigation. But that is the kind of issue that traditionally our committee has looked into that we'll continue to look into we've also done vested work about problems that have rear their head at this particular element of the icy or another or concerns we've had about covert action programs, and so all of those areas some you could characterize Moore's oversight. But some of them are just downright. Investigatory wanna ask you a political question? One of the features of the mid terms that has garnered a lot of commentary is the sort. Of rise of a large faction of much more progressive Democrats, we have just seen a Republican caucus that went to war against the intelligence community the movement in the United States that is traditionally associated with real suspicions of the intelligence community. At least in modern times has been the political left. And so I'm interested in your thoughts on this new group of progressive left Democrats coming in in a environment in which it is a typically the Democratic Party that is sort of standing as the defenders of the intelligence community and federal law enforcement. I it's a weird integration. I and I'm interested in your thoughts. As to are we at a moment in which the left and the intelligence community and law enforcement communities have more to talk about than they used. Two or is this a situation in which we've seen the right after the I see in the end the law enforcement world, and we're gonna see some real tensions emerge..

"First and foremost, I would say that we need to get to the bottom of anything that could warp our national security policy in a way that is at the to the interest in the country. So anything that has a continuing ability to influence the actions of the president we need to know as policymakers to protect the country. So in that category. I would say things like we are learning about the Trump Tower Moscow deal that in fact, the negotiation win on well past Michael Cohen, testified to our committee well, past what others within Trump will wanted us to know that it involved direct outreach to the Kremlin through people like Dmitry peskov that far from what they told us that they got no response. In fact, they did get a response that deeply compromising of the administration of the Trump organization in the same way that Michael Flynn's. Deceptions were deeply compromised. And so if there is more out there of that kind we need to know. I'm Susan Hennessy. And this is the law fair podcast, December eighth twenty eight teen on January third Democrats will take control at the house of representatives and all of its committees congressman Adam Schiff of California. The current ranking member on the house permanent select committee on intelligence also known as hippy it's expected to take control of the committee this week Benjamin Renison I sat down with congressman Schiff at his office to discuss the agenda for hips in the upcoming congress, though, I'm conspicuously absent from the second half of the conversation. I had to step out midway sorry about that. We talked about the challenges faced by the democratic majority as they attempt to rebuild bipartisanship on a deeply divided committee. And of course, the Russian investigation. It's the law. Fair podcast episode three hundred seventy two congressman Adam Schiff on the future of the house intelligence committee. I will say that we are recording this with the assumption that you will soon be the chairman of the house, permanent select committee on intelligence think it's fair to say that the past year has been unusual year for that committee that we've seen more acrimony than has existed in the past. So my first question for you is how you think about restoring bipartisanship. If there's our Rodgers reports burgers sort of solution year are their partners on the other side of the aisle. And and sort of how you think about tackling that there really to initial missions for the committee one as you point out his to restore comedy on the committee some sense of regular order. The second is to restore the relationship between the committee and the intelligence community, which has also been contentious at times on the first in terms of restoring comedy. The good news bad news of our committee has been that even. Amidst the deepest divisions over Russia. We have compartmentalized all of the other work of the committee the bread and butter of the committee, and that is oversight of these intelligence agencies and production of an annual intelligence authorization act that sets their funding levels that decides what new restrictions may need to be put in place, or what steps have to be taken to get the deceased a bit of work together. All of those issues, we have continued to work on nonpartisan way. So that's good. So we have a base there. But we will have a lot of new members, which I think will be helpful. I've already begun to talk to some of the existing members about getting us back to a regular even vis-a-vis Russia now they're going to have to want to do that about six months ago. The GOP members walked out of the rush investigation or more accurately decided that their entire focus in the rush investigation would be investigating investigators now. They stopped going to witness interviews when we would bring witnesses in. We will invite them to come back, but it will be up to them whether they reciprocate, but the second issue is equally important in that is when the chairman decided to publish the now infamous Nunez memorandum to use this never before used house rule to selectively and misleadingly published classified information. It was a spectacular breach of compact that we have with the intelligence community where we count on them to trust us with their deepest held secrets which we need them to do for us to do our oversight. And they can't on us not to abuse that not to politicize it and not to publish it..
