Here's more from CBS is Steve Futterman. It was a majority extra bird Mr Burr guilty, but it wasn't a two thirds majority. Richard Burr, one of seven Republican members voting for guilt. Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell voted not guilty but then afterwards said there's no question Go on. That President Trump is practically and morally responsible. For provoking the events of the day. McConnell said His not guilty vote was because Mr Trump's now a private citizen, which led Democratic House manager Joaquin Castro to say the defendant, President Donald John Trump. Was let off on a technicality for Mr Trump Acquittal but not vindication. Steve
McConnell says Trump was "practically and morally responsible" for Washington, DC riot after voting not guilty
"Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell delivered a scalding denunciation of former President Trump calling him morally responsible for the attack on the U. S Capitol. But before that, of course, he voted not guilty in the president's impeachment trial. Joining us for more is Ken Walsh, White House and political analyst for U. S News and World Report. Can it looks like that High wire act continues for many Republicans and their relationship with the former president. Well, it does. And you know, this basically is a rebuke to President Trump because It was 57 to 43 vote to find him guilty of inciting the insurrection, But it failed to reach the 67 votes two thirds needed to convict. So it was a majority vote, including seven Republicans. Of course, what it is basically, it's it's sort of an outcome without a conclusion and It's um there's still a special congressional commission that's going to proceed to look at the events of January 6th when the capital was invaded. At the state level their investigations of President Trump's conduct and trying to overturn the election in Georgia and in New York. So This really has not resolved very much, And there's a lot of sense of disappointment really around Washington as to how this has all come out. Wasn't worth doing. And, of course, this such a ferocious partisanship in the air that, um, the House managers and the Democrats who pushed this field was worth doing because President Trump needed to be rebuked. But of course, he was not convicted. And so a ZAY say there's just the sense that this is, um This does not really resolve anything and that we're just as polarized as we had been with President Trump with the center of that of former President Trump in the center of that. And, um, we're gonna be talking about this, Uh, for well into the future. Did you find it interesting, though, that McConnell pointed specifically to criminal courts is a possible future forum for this kind of thing for the president. The former president? Yes. Yes, he did, And he sure almost invited that to happen. On But, you know, they're just step back and look a historically, um, in our first um, really two centuries we have one impeachment of Andrew Johnson 18 68. Ah, then, 130 years later, we had, um The beginning of appeared where we had three Bill Clinton. In 1998 and then Donald Trump twice in 2019 2021. So what's happened is that I think, partly because the presidency has gotten so powerful, and there's an effort in Congress to rein it in. And partly because we have become so partisan on polarized as a country, impeachment has become not the rare process that the founders envisioned, but something that's used as a As a weapon by both parties really against the sitting president. So we've had three impeachments now since 1998. And that's a really a remarkable historical development that impeachment has become. More of a regular eyes thing in our country. And as I say, three of them since

The Housewives is manager's A recognized 2.5 minutes. Thank you. Well, let me tell you what he said it to 24 P. M. He said. Mike Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution US a demands the truth. And you know by now, what was all over the media, you couldn't turn on the television couldn't turn on the radio couldn't consume any media. Probably take any phone calls or anything else without hearing about this and also hearing about the vice president. And here's what Donald Trump had to know what that time because the whole world knew it. All of us knew it. Like television had by this point shown that the insurgents were already inside the building and that they had weapons and that the police were out number. And hear the facts. They're not in dispute. Donald Trump had not taken any measures to send help to the overwhelmed Capitol police. As president. At that point, when you see all this going on and the people around, you are imploring you to do something. And you're vice president is there Why wouldn't you do it? Donald Trump had not publicly condemned the attack. The Attackers were told them to stand down, despite multiple pleased to do so. And Donald Trump hadn't even acknowledged the attack. And after Wednesday's trial portion, concluded a senator Tuberville spoke to reporters and confirmed the call that he had with the president and did not dispute manager. Sicily needs description in any way that there was a call between He and the president. Around the time that Mike Pence was being ushered out. Of the chamber. That was shortly after 2 P.m..

There were still hours of chaos and carnage and made him the vice president and his family were still in danger at that point. Commander in chief. Nothing. Counsel for the former president. The answer is no. At No point was the president informed. The vice president wasn't answering her house rushed in Trump's change Mint in seven days with no evidence, there's nothing at all in the record on this point. Because the house failed to do even a minimum amount of due diligence. What the president did know is that there was a violent There was a violent riot happening at the Capitol. That's why he repeatedly called via tweet and via video for the rights to stop to be peaceful. Respect Capitol police and law enforcement and to commit no violence and to go home. But to be clear This is an article of impeachment for incitement. This is not an article of impeachment for anything else. So one count. They could have charged anything they wanted. They chose T O charge incitement. So that the question, although answer directly, no, it's not really relevant to the charges for the impeachment in this case. I just wanted to clear up one more thing. Mr Castro, in his first answer, may have spoke. But what he said was, Mr Trump had said fight to the death. That's false. I'm hoping he misspoke. Thank you. Yeah. Mr President. The serve minister, Mr President on behalf of myself and Senators, Casey and Brown.

But inside in armed attack on the capital He did so while seeking to overturn the results of the election and fort the transfer of power. When the attack began, he further incited violence aimed to his own vice president. Even his demonstrated his state of mind by failing to defend us and the law enforcement officials who protect us Consequences of his conduct were devastating on every level. Police officers were left overwhelmed unprotected. Congress had to be evacuated. Staff barricaded in this building, calling their families to say goodbye. Some of us like Mr Raskin had Children here. And these people in this building Some of whom were on the FBI's watch list took photos. Still, laptops destroyed precious statues, including one of John Lewis. Desecrated the statue of a recently deceased member of Congress who stood for Nonviolence. This was devastating. And the world watched us and the world is still watching us. See what we will do this day. We'll know what we did this day. 100 years from now. Those are the immediate consequences. Our actions will reverberate as to what of the future consequences.

Senate. Call the former president on insider in chief who reveled in the chaos of his supporters of the capital on January 6th joining us now to talk about the day or NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis and NPR's senior political editor and correspondent. Domenico Montanaro. Could have you both. Here. Thanks. Thanks. Claudia, you were actually in the Senate chamber today, where the 100 senators as jury members sit silently listening to the House. Impeachment managers make their case describe the mood for us. It was clear much of the time that I was in the chamber that the members were very engaged. For example, they were watching lead manager Jamie Raskin, in his presentation very intently reminded me of the chamber yesterday when Raskin was giving his emotional remarks. About the day he and his family experienced here. During the insurrection. I was seated on the Republican side of the chamber. Republicans were intently watching him and the other managers and that includes those who say they won't be voting to convict Trump like Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Republican member of the Senate. Also, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell was also watching. Very closely even watch some of these videos of the president's past statements on a television screen on the chamber floor. Many members were taking notes, and this includes those who have voted for the constitutionality of the trial, among them, Ben Sasse of Nebraska had a pile of no cards on his desk. Domenico. The Democrats were making the arguments today. I know you've been watching since the beginning of these proceedings yesterday what stood out to you compared to yesterday's testimony. Well, only later in the day here, have we gotten some of the personal passion and emotion that we had yesterday about the violence on January? 6th? Mostly today, Democrats had been methodically mounting, pretty dispassionate case to show Trump is the reason for why all of this happened. They claim that it's not just isolated to January 6th and tick through numerous things for months and months. That this was months and months in the making that Trump laid the groundwork before the election and drove it home after after that election and was aware of what was being planned. Um, it kind of really makes me wonder how and what the trump lawyers they're going to say in rebuttal, aside from saying that Democrats are being selective and use the word on that they didn't say that he used the word peaceful. In his speech on January 6th. Claudia tell us more about how the Democrats are actually building their case here. Yes, they're focused on showing the timeline of how Trump built a crowd of people who distrusted the election and believed they were following his orders. Jonah Goose, one of the managers of he's, a House member of Colorado. He also talked about this. Let's take a listen. Senators is clearly was not just one speech. Didn't just happen.

G. he went the ship and then it was shifting his staff that prepared the whistle blower complaint and then took it to the I. G. we need to remember the inspector general made a ruling and changed a rule on the fly that would permit second hand knowledge to be admissible from whistle blowers prior to this a whistle blower hand to have first hand knowledge of what it was blowing the whistle on shar mala did not he was not on the phone call and remember Sharm el as first characterization of the phone call with shocking it was terrifying I was scared to death but what it meant for my country all my god I couldn't contain myself I had to report it then trump releases the transcript of the call and there's nothing shocking or terrifying or anything close to that and that's when this all began to blow up on shift and that's why the whistle blower has not been heard from much why have a name that's why she doesn't want to call as a witness because the conspiracy I'm a whistle blower and Sean missed call working with chef and his staff to make all this happen would be revealed and they don't want to be ready and that's ultimately why there aren't going to be any witnesses mark my words but the story here is the Chief Justice censoring all of this the Chief Justice not allowing this question let me read to your ram Paul's question again my question is about whether or not individuals over holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Adam Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the president be for there were formal house impeachment proceedings in a ramp Paul tweeted out the question that Robert censored my exact question was are you aware that house intelligence committee staffers Sean Misako had a close relationship with Eric Shara mellow while at the National Security Council together and are you aware and how do you respond to report to the charm now and miss go may have worked together to plot impeaching the president before member formal house impeachment proceedings my question is not this is this is Rampolla tweet my question is not about a whistle blower as I have no independent information on his identity my question is about the actions of known Obama partisans within the NSC and how staff and how they are reported to have conspired to be for impeachment proceedings had even begun now this fox look all this is true rand Paul's asking a question to which everybody in the Senate chamber knows the answer do not doubt me the Chief Justice knows the answer everybody knows the answer ever I just told you Sean missed call and Sharma R. Obama hold overs and they work together conspired prior to formal impeachment hearings to set this all up everybody in that room knows folks that's what that's another reason that all this is so damn bogus everybody knows what happened here and it's one of the reasons I have been hell bent in suggesting to Republic shut this down it is corrupt it is it's bogus on its face this is not legitimate there is no rational explanation for this impeachment in terms of the president's actions and I'll tell you by the way yeah we have this call this circa earlier from a guy at the president's daughter printing what a lip balm does a boy why does the president where his rage he has do you realize what releasing the transcript of the phone call was the president is the one who is gone out of the way they help people find and learn the truth here that's why this thing has to be shut its fox literally it's bogus the premise the evidence there is and why was no collusion with their wives no withholding of aid the their wise no quid pro quo but I am I know the Republicans is that's not the right stance rush we need to admit there was a quid pro quo and say it's fine it everybody does it and Dershowitz tried that you see what they're doing with it that's the center what Dershowitz put out there now before we get to the break I'm bye bye I want to go back to yesterday because when I heard this first question no I'm not gloss over to chi how much more can I take the Chief Justice and we had calls about this people rush I'm really worried about the Chief Justice I know is a never trump and I try to tell people don't sweat it that the Chief Justice does not run this hearing like a trial judge runs a court room and for the most part that's true but this is this is really suspect because everybody in the room knows the answer to rand Paul's question this is a can to it raining and there's a leak in the Senate and water is pouring in and somebody stands up Mister Chief Justice is it raining in the Senate chamber I'm not permitting that question that question goes to a problem in the Senate Ralph and I'm not gonna we're not exist so it's raining in there and everybody knows it but the Chief Justice is not allowing it to be stated essentially what's happening here everybody that knows the answer to that question so kudos to rand Paul yesterday the first question when I heard the first question that was asked by Susan Collins on behalf for herself and more Caskey and Romney I just want to remind you what I said about that is perfectly clear to me that you can't take politics out of this and that everybody in politics calculates how whatever their political actions are how that's going to impact their re election or their campaign order polling data or their fund raising or whatever else their job approval numbers you can't separate the two the house managers would like you to believe that there is some unique area where everything is perfect and nobody does anything for any personal gain what so ever and trunk laid it everything judge it for personal gain and that's putting himself a head of the offices of these guys have no that we have right here this answer is that the case I mean it should end the case shut it down exactly in the question basically wise can the president engage in foreign policy or executing the policies of the United States with multiple objectives can you be doing good for the country and helping himself make every politician plans on being reelected every politician lets their voters know what bills they supported and opposed every politician runs ads to let their voters know why they should re elect them the house managers wanted to make it look like for the president to be pure he must all pose what he wants for the country it must not yet must hurt the president the only way we can judge him to be dissident there is if he does things that actually harms of that's what they're actually advocates for verse and the answer to that question yes the president can have multiple motives while implementing American foreign policy and some of the multiple motives can include helping himself that there's nothing criminal about it there's nothing impeachable about it I thought that that the answer to the question it is the case it takes away everything the Democrats are trying to make their case out of so last night on the angle of the fox news channel she have the former whitewater independent counsel Robert ray on question did you'll get the sense that this very methodical mostly unemotional but comprehensive performance by Patrick Philbin sway the family of the Y. blurs one way or another the most important question that was asked and who asked it was significant it was senator sue Collins it was a centre McCaskey and it was senator Romney together the question was what are we supposed to do with the case involving mixed motive the.

But there's another kind of restriction flown under the radar so called abortion reversal laws states including North Dakota Oklahoma and Arkansas have passed laws requiring doctors to tell patients seeking medication based abortions that the procedure can be reversed if they change change their minds halfway through the procedure. The medical establishment says. That's not true. And there's no reliable research supporting these treatments joining me now. Is Mary. Ziglar law professor at Florida State University and the author of several books about abortion including abortion and the law in America Roe V. Wade to the present which comes out in March Mary Mary thanks for coming on the show. Thanks also with. This is Mark Herron senior counsel with the Center for Reproductive Rights. Mark Glad you could join us too happy to be here Mary Mary. How does a medication? Abortion actually work and our antiabortion activists claiming it can be reversed medication. Abortion usually requires women are patients to take two pills mifepristone which helps to detach the pregnancy from the uterine lining and Misoprostol which I'm causes contractions so anti-abortion groups that are promoting these worship though reversal. Laws claimed that Usually if you take only the first mill in the to protocol will and then take significant uses of progesterone that an abortion won't be completed. So is the idea as far as you can tell that antiabortion activists. I'm trying to buy time if you will in which to allow for someone to have doubts about going through with the procedure I think so and I think the laws are part of a bigger narrative that anti-abortion groups have promoted which is that women regret abortions. And so the idea here I think is to advance that the idea and also to suggest that women who feel that way or or encouraged to feel that way by anti-abortion groups that they can change their minds. What explains this rise in these quote owed abortion reversal laws? There too. I think primary things that have led the emphasis put on these laws. The I I think is just an increase in the number of women who are using being medication abortion and their pregnancies and a sense on the part of anti-abortion groups that that number is only going to increase as more states introduce abortion restrictions. And as some states it's roby weight is overturned actually ban abortions it becomes more and more important then for anti-abortion groups to convince women that abortion pollster about idea and that abortion pills I don't necessarily lead to the end of pregnancy. The other reason these laws had spread is because of a broader strategy to reverse row on the theory eerie that abortion hurts women the Supreme Court when previously deciding not to overturn Roe emphasized. The idea that women rely on abortion to attain equal citizenship ship whether that's in pursuing economic opportunities for educational opportunities anti-abortion groups. Believe that if the court no longer thinks that right if women cannot or should not rely on worship than the court will undo row so these abortion pill reversal loss fit into a strategy centered on the idea that abortion is bad for women so mark. Do we have any evidence. Supporting the claim of these laws. That medication abortion can be reversed. Well we know that medication abortion as Mary says a two drug protocol and if that protocol is followed allowed it's both extremely safe and extremely effective. It's effective in over ninety. Five percent of cases and the rate of serious complications is less than zero point. Four percent and We also know that if only the first drug mifepristone is taken and not follow it up with a second drug. There's a high rate of continued pregnancies up to fifty percent so the claims that are being made. Is that if you introduce high rates of progesterone after taking the first pill that not that somehow counteracts the effects of the first pill but there's absolutely no credible scientific evidence that the progesterone has any effect whatsoever. There was a recent study that tried to actually test this reversal theory using rigorous scientific evidence that double blinded controlled clinical trial that you would typically see before you introduce a new treatment and they actually had the researchers there had to stop the study after only twelve women took the treatment because three of the women experienced severe hemorrhaging. So what we're seeing. Is that this quote unquote reversal treatment. Not Not only is there. No science showing its efficacy. In fact the American College of Obstetricians and gynecologists has said that this is not based on credible evidence but there are serious concerns with safety and the Ama the American Medical Association is also actually spoken out about this correct. That's correct the Center for Reproductive Rights is challenging reversal laws in both North Dakota and in Oklahoma. I'm involved in both of those lawsuits. And in our North Dakota case the American Medical Association has joined his plaintiff in that case Mary this narrative underlying all these laws rests on the idea that people are going going to regret having an abortion. What do we know about that? There was just recently a study Suggesting that very few women do regret abortions Worshi- but I think unfortunately in the state of the abortion debate. There's really no study. That would put those arguments about abortion and regret to rest. So I think there's been a considerable amount of research suggesting that women don't regret worship on at least for the most part but anecdotal evidence or questions questions about what anti-working activists would see his bias will mean that arguments about abortion and regret will live on. I think not least of which because they're believed believed by anti-abortion lawyers to be effective in the courts as a strategy for eventually dismantling abortion rates mark. I'm also wondering what these laws mean for for doctors especially in an ethical or legal sense. The most critical part of a physician patient relationship is trust. Patients have to believe that their doctors are giving them sound medical advice in ends advice that they can rely on and physicians have an ethical obligation toward their patients and these the state laws are requiring physicians to tell their patients about a course of treatment. That is not only Medically unsound in terms of There's no evidence of efficacy it's also potentially dangerous and so it really puts doctors in this Hobson's choice and the the Oklahoma Lawford for example. Actually makes it a felony to not tell your patients about this quote unquote reversal. Treatment and doctors can be fined up to ten thousand dollars a day if they don't post these notices in their waiting rooms so doctors and now forced. Do I rescue criminal penalties. Or do I give my patients false. And misleading information and violate my ethical obligations. Mark Herron is senior counsel with the Center for Reproductive Rights and Mary.

That's really not doing as well as many people think it should be doing so I think the economy is the headline there right. I think the Indian or perhaps the government thinking has been that as long as India remains a sort of critical market the woods media me sort of cop a bit but governments. We need India's business and they need India's market but if the economy continues to nosedive in doesn't recover and I think that leverage that India as emerging superpowers of this region has enjoyed will diminish and therefore I think what how the world reacts and how India counters that is going to depend very much on how the economy performs bark is an author journalist and Washington Post columnist. Barca thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me on Tuesday. The Brazilian government filed a criminal complaint against journalist. Glenn Greenwald alleging. He helped attack. The cell phones of public officials. Prosecutors are demanding greenwald be charged in relation to an investigative series. He worked on that exposed ethical violations corruption corruption and politically driven convictions by Brazilian prosecutors and a high ranking government official the intercept the news organization Greenwald helped found began. AM publishing these stories. Last June based on a trove of leat private chats audio recordings and other documentation Greenwald is best known for his work exposing widespread spread surveillance practices by the US government based on documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden US lawmakers and press freedom organizations have spoken out in support of Greenwald warning that these charges could lead to broader tax on free speech under the government of far. I Brazilian President Joao Year Bolsonaro so here to discuss this in his first. US Radio interview since a criminal complaint was filed we're joined by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Glenn Greenwald Co founder of the intercept. He's with US via skype. Glenn thank you so much for being with us. Give me really appreciate it. Tell US exactly what the Brazilian prosecutors are. Alleging regarding your role in the investigation published by the intercept and the intercept Zip Brazil so the expertise that you referenced at the beginning were enabled by an anonymous source who came to us with with a large archive of communications and a secret documents. Exchange between high-level Brazilian officials that he said he had hacked by the time he talked to me he had already obtained all of this material. They are nonetheless Accusing me of being a participant in the winter are calling in organized Criminal Organization based on their theory that while talking to the source the source asked me whether or not he he should be deleting the conversations I was having with him I explained to him that I couldn't give him any advice But that I did have an obligation to protect him. As my source I was saving all communications and there was no need for him to save them because I was keeping them in a secure place for my own protection and his. The federal police leased concluded their investigation. Two months ago and said there's no evidence that I committed any crime of any kind even pointed to that specific conversation and said this is proved that he always used professionalism and caution to avoid involving himself in any potential criminality but the prosecutor who's known even as being a pro bolsonaro prosecutor prone to abuse. His power has the opposite theory. which is that when I said? Oh you don't need to worry. I'm keeping copies of all of our conversations that I was implicitly. Giving him a wink wink Form of advice to destroy the communications and therefore made myself part of the Criminal Organization station and when he's actually to these Communications happen the source. I contacted me on Mother's Day of two thousand nineteen which if my memory serves was may eleven and I spoke to the stores over the course of the next several weeks as we prepare our stories and as he uploaded the materials that he had obtained aimed I onto my telephone and then ultimately onto the servers of intercept so it was during these two or three weeks conversations when we were preparing our stories as and working with our source that I was prior to the criminal complaint issued this week. A Brazilian Supreme Court justice actually went so far as to order the federal the police to stop investigating you in this case. Why did the judge feel the need to take them measure in the first place? While from the beginning. The Brazilian government has made clear. They don't believe in our free press at all. The president of the country's arable scenario has spent thirty years advocating for a return to the military dictatorship that ruled the country until nineteen the five. He is often railed against press freedoms and shortly after we started our reporting or are experts as that had as their primary target. The Justice Justice Minister the very powerful Justice Minister of the Bosnian government surgery. Moro News leaked from his office that they had initiated an investigation into my personal finances. Dances which everybody knew. Obviously was in retaliation for the reporting and so a central at political party in Brazil went to the Supreme Court and partitioned the Supreme Court for an order barring any investigations into me relating to the reporting that I was doing on the grounds that it was a violation of free crossing. The Supreme Court accepted petition. Ordered all eight law enforcement agencies including the prosecutors Not to investigate me in any way in connection with this reporting on the grounds that it would be an attack on a free press in violation of the constitutional liberty of press freedom and this the judge issued a ruling is now out very angry and publicly saying that what the prosecutor did was a clear violation of the Supreme Court order so just to for those of us who live here in the US who It sounds like this is basically a political or constitutional sort of struggle. That's playing out. There is between the Supreme Court and other branches the government I think that People in the US and more broadly in the West have sometimes had trouble understanding the true nature of the Bolsonaro Movement and presidents. Naro himself in part because the Western media spent two thousand eighteen referring to him as the trump of the tropics is though he was he's just kind of another Donald Trump and people look at the US where Donald Trump is president in obviously see tax on democracy by trump but nonetheless functioning auctioning healthy democracy in the US and conclude the Bulls. Naro must not be that threatening in reality. He's nowhere near Trump in terms of the threats administers he poses to democracy in part because Brazilian democracy is much younger than you asked democracy and therefore much more fragile Glenn before we let you go. How are you you and your family doing you know I think I would be lying if I if I were to deny that. This has been a very difficult by months for my family and and and and for myself. Obviously when you can't leave your house that armed security in our vehicles and you're being threatened by the president of the country with prison and and all the invasiveness that they tried to impose on our private lives it's obviously difficult I think the fact that both David and I went through this in the snowden reporting when we were threatened by the US government he was detained by the UK government in a notorious incident at Heathrow Airport has made it a little bit easier because we'd done something similar over this has been much more difficult but ultimately at the end of the day if you go into journalism these are the kinds of stories you want to do and if you want to confront power inherent in that Is You're going to be subjected to attacks and risks and dangers and so while it's not been easier fun all the time. It's been very gratifying. Brazil does a country. I Love I care about Brazilian democracy. I feel like the journalism are doing is is defending and strengthening it. And that's something bad gives me a sense of purpose that makes.

"The evidence shows that president trump unlawfully withheld military assistance. You raise the so called crowd strike conspiracy theory that Ukraine not Russia had interfered in the two thousand sixteen election president trump was publicly signaling.

The President United States Adam Schiff continues to make the same arguments over and over again for trading of you. That's covered this in the house. Today was not a new day it was just a repeat and repeat and repeat the same things that he has been saying for a long the time when it comes to Donald Trump. They're willing to destroy the institution of the office and the name of getting him to go. Great I don't know sort of love. Sit Right there Fredro and stare. They're corrupt faces. I'd love to it's the takeaway Maroon Benigo Paul in for Tanzania Vega House. Democrats are laying out their impeachment case against President Donald Trump in the Senate led by representative. Adam Schiff the house managers presented aspects of their impeachment case late into Wednesday night accusing the president of using his power to pressure the Ukrainian government into helping helping him cheat his way to re-election the president's defense team will have to wait until the Democrats wrap up their opening statements to outline their case against impeachment only after both sides finished inch their arguments and senators ask written questions will lawmakers be able to vote on whether to subpoena witnesses for more on this. We're joined by Jennifer Habur corn who covers Congress for the L. A. Times and Max Kutner journalists covering impeachment the Russia probes the FBI and the Justice Department. Thanks to you both for being on the program. Thank you thank okay. Let's start with you. House managers are laying out their opening arguments without any challenge from other senators or from the White House. Legal team is there. Anything fundamentally fundamentally different between what they're arguing this week versus what we heard during the impeachment hearings in the house around the house process obviously was working towards words impeachment this now in the Senate this is working towards removing trump from office. So this is a lot more consequential and what we heard yesterday from the house managers. That was a lot of what we did already here. And what was in the impeachment investigation report however if this process continues if the Democrats are allowed to call all witnesses review new documents then this will be a much newer process also starting as late as Saturday. We will be hearing from trump's legal team and that we did not get during the house process. Max We're still waiting to hear opening arguments from the president's legal team but we do have a sense of what their case will look like based on a trial memo that they filed what stood out to you in that memo so they are expected to make procedural arguments. They're going to say the house process was was biased. So far this whole impeachment process has been structurally deficient. That's the wording that they used. Then they're expected to make legal arguments. They'll say these articles do not violate the law. They don't stand up to the You know the bar of high crimes and misdemeanors and then there are expected to make political arguments as well in the memo. They said that the Democrats are quote held hostage by a radical left wing. That has foisted on their party. Agenda of socialism. That sounds more like the kind of the thing we here at a trump rally and not so much in a in a legal document. Swipe do think especially depending on which of his legal team members are presenting these arguments. We are going to hear a bit of that. We are going to hear this being used as a time to promote trump. Maybe more political way than a legal way but mainly they're we're gonNA attack these two articles and say that they don't stand up. This isn't what the framers of the Constitution intended now. One of the members of legal team Alan Dershowitz has been pushing the argument that the president needs to be charged with the actual crime to be impeached but most constitutional scholars don't agree with that correct and what's interesting about that. Is that seems to be attacking the process the legality of this whole process and less. Oh the actual facts here so that is less disputing what happened. It's more just disputing that. We should even having this argument to begin with now. Let's hear from a chief justice John Roberts who's presiding over the trial in the Senate. He he had some pointed words for house impeach managers as well as the President's defense team. I think it is appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the house managers and the President's Council in equal terms to remember that they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body one reason it has earned that title is because its members. Avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil civil discourse the world's greatest deliberative body. Nothing like a little triumphalism at a time of severe dysfunction In Congress Jennifer Wide Roberts feel the need to speak out there so that was on Tuesday night. It was getting pretty late at that point. I think it was about one. AM and lawyers. There's on both sides. We're getting pretty testy Jerry Nadler said that the Senate was engaged in a cover up By not participating in the witness subpoena the process that really rankled Republican senators. They told me yesterday that they were really offended by that comment. But the president's lawyers responded as well what kind of going back and forth between them Obviously at that point. That's a trial The lawyers are going up one after the other. So we're seeing both outsides. Unlike right now and we're you know we really have the presentation from house. Democrats three days in a row and then trump lawyers three days in a row So that happened and Chief Justice made this admonishment and frankly a lot of senators. This was a good idea. From the chief justice to try to tamp down the temperature and in in fact yesterday the tone was a lot more somber and Adam Schiff. They'll eat house. Impeachment manager started the day yesterday by you. Know really really laying it on thick for senators thanking them for their time and their patients today before So perhaps they're getting closer to that world's greatest deliberative body uh-huh well so far Jennifer. The Senate hasn't voted to allow witnesses to participate in trauma. The impeachment managers have been playing video clips of several key witnesses. who were part of the House? Inquiry like Gordon Sunland and few and a hill is re airing those clubs helpful to the Democratic Strategy. Here you know I think it may be I've been in the chamber in the press gallery watching a lot of the arguments yesterday and I mean senators. We're watching the video Showing onto television screens in the Senate so house Democrats might not be able to get those witnesses to testify Live in front of the Senate or even in a new deposition but They're making those witnesses testimony known to senators and that that could have an effect Senators are in that chamber for long hours listening to Adam ship. Jerry Nadler and the other House Democrats talk but They're seeing the festival from those windows as well next. There was speculation this week week. That a witness deal. That is the testimony of Hunter Biden son of Vice President Joe Biden for someone like former national security adviser. John Bolton it Democrats shot down those rumors yesterday. Where does that leave the likelihood of testimony from officials like John Bolton well? I don't think that much has changed in the past. Twenty four or forty eight hours since the senators Initially said that they were not going to allow the body to subpoena these new witnesses subpoena for documents they. We are going to be considering those motions to do so again. After these two twenty four hour periods after the arguments that is so if anything changes then there will be that opportunity to call those witnesses a lot of Republicans were speaking to reporters yesterday saying that that would only drag out the process and so it seems unlikely that that what will happen And and certainly Democrats yesterday. Were saying that as as Adam Schiff put it. This isn't a fantasy football trade. There's not going to be this sort of witness trade and so without any sort of leverage or a trade off I can't imagine republicans changing their minds from from what we found the other day. Jennifer the rules rules governing impeachment proceedings are pretty outdated Senator supposed to remain in the chambers for the entirety of the arguments and trial. Have they actually been following these. ooh pretty much yes We've seen a lot of senators. Kinda get FIDGETY. And Ansi and they go to stand up in the back of the chamber or They're passing notes. Let's with their colleagues are getting candy but Yeah the rules are pretty outdated. They can only have milk or water on their desk. No coffee There were actually two senators that I spotted with milk which I was not really expecting Senator Tom Cotton and Senator Richard Burr. And you know we saw Dianne Feinstein after about an hour early yesterday. Her spokesman so that she wasn't feeling well but for the most part senators have been in there but the brakes are kind of increasing as we get later into the day. Now it is easy to feel entirely cynical about this process on the inside. Does it feel like that or does it feel like people are genuinely grappling with these arguments and trying to do the ride by Congress You know a little bit of both And I've asked senators that you know they repeatedly said.
