"Colorado Democratic representative Jason Crow on Colorado's morning news yesterday, laying out what he says should happen. We can't be making small cuts here and there we have to be acting boldly. I don't like the name Max on our money, right. But what I do know if we don't act quickly, and we don't act big. That's gonna be at least a decade or more before we recover from it. Let's get into the issues with the other side of the aisle. Republican representative Ken Buck on our live line. Good morning. Good to have you again. Good morning. What do you see as the non negotiables that have to be in any stimulus package going forward? No, I think obviously we have to help small business and we have to help individuals who are unemployed. We have to also make sure that we don't disincentivize work by giving those unemployed individuals more money. On unemployment than they would make if they went back to work. And so I think it's important to get the economy up and rolling again. I think it's important to make sure that we do it in the safe way. We recognized the dangers of this pandemic. But we do everything we canto get moving. Is the stimulus package going to be a little more targeted Congressman Because the last go around, at least with the PPP that guys like Elon Musk and Kanye West? How are they getting the money and we heard about how small businesses aren't Is there going to be Maur directed And if you want to see more oversight on this Well, I think, uh, you probably won't be more oversight because Congresses of not in session in August, but I think there will be more. The administration will be in a better position. Frankly, this was something that was new, unexpected. And it takes ah, period of time to get Washington D c. Moving and adjusting to a program like this. What do you say to critics who think that you folks are working on kind of a piecemeal approach that moves too slowly during a pandemic like this? What's your response to that? I I'm I'm not concerned about the piecemeal approach. I think it's most important to get it right. And I think that what I can't accept in these bills is the pork that is stuffed in because it's so necessary because people are hurting. Andi leadership believes that that we're going to sign on to anything that they throw wasteful spending into bills to appease particular interest group. I find that really repugnant. I think one of the big things you've pointed out about this as you want businesses to be immune from being sued. If you will, If they open up and somebody contracts the virus, do other people on on your side of the island on the opposite side. Do they share that sentiment and trying to get this? Part of this package. I think I think everybody recognizes the challenge of reducing or eliminating liability for businesses, especially retail businesses that deal with consumers on a regular basis. The challenges at what level what is reasonable in terms of precautions that business takes to make sure that it is doing what it can to reduce the likelihood of of spreading Kobe. So that's That's something that folks have to get a little bit more in depth into what about this idea, giving financial aid to schools that decide to reopen for in classroom learning? Aren't you incentivizing schools to do something that's may be dangerous to their population. I don't believe that is dangerous. I think that if you book Germany closed schools in March and open them in mid April The same thing with France. The same thing with so many countries. People recognize that when you close schools, you are actually creating ah, a larger education gap between the haves and the have nots. And we can't afford to do that in this country, and I think we are absolutely irresponsible. There are responsible, safe ways to open schools and we've got to move in that direction. This is ah. We know that young people are the least at risk for serious problems with this disease now. Yes, they they can take disease home on DH infect others, but we've got to make sure that we are Ah, really protecting the vulnerable population in America at the same time, trying to get back to normal as quickly as possible, as we wrap up with your congressman Neel Kashkari, who's the Fed chair in Minneapolis. You're probably familiar with him. He's of the opinion that in again, he's not giving medical advice but from the financial aspect that you should throw money at this problem, and he says that as the economy comes back You'll make up for what? You think you're outlaying now, But he says at the same time that comes with shutting things down for a couple of weeks, but then really throwing money at people and giving them money to spend. If you guys talked about that, Do you agree with that assessment? No, I don't think any politician wants to say that we're gonna throw money at anything. I think when you have $30 trillion of debt, it is very serious. But he makes a very good point about the liquidity in the market place, and we need to make sure that people have money to spend. S so that the economy moves forward. But we have also have to get back to normality a cz quickly as possible in a Safeway from Colorado's fourth Congressional district representative Kim Bok, thanks so much for the time as always. Thank you Have a good week. We hope they can get something done soon, 7 30 on Colorado's Morning news. Let's head out before our newscast and check on your drive with John Morrissey.

"You are on the verge of losing their homes. And I apologise, Congressman. I think probably I wasn't clear next. When he's saying, Don't worry, meaning throw money at the problem. But don't worry about the cost of it now, because once for through this because the economy will make up for his point was no. You should be adding the extra benefits to get people through this. I just didn't know if if there was any talk about that, so I didn't I didn't get that the first time you explained it, so yeah, there, you know, I again I don't know his specific proposal, so I cannot, you know, find out what he's saying what he's not saying, but You know, my general approach to it as I mentioned a little while ago is what we know to be true from prior economic crises, both in 19 thirties and in 8 4009 Is that if you don't act Quick enough, And if you don't act big enough, the cost of not acting are far far higher. People talk about the cost of the $600 a month unemployment benefit, But you do you know what's really expensive, what's really expensive people losing their homes. People losing their apartment trouble defaulting on their bills that creates Ah, your negative cycle that will spin out of control. And the next thing you know, we're in a 10 to 15 year recovery. Recover from this on, da people are defaulting on their bills. Companies start going under. You were losing millions of businesses. That's the situation we don't want to be. And so we do need to spend the money now to make sure that we're saving a lot more on the back end quickly is a wrap up with you. How soon can something get done? Week? Two weeks month. Well, I think it has to get done this week. First of all, I had to get them last week before the expiration of the benefit and it could have could have got done. You know again. We passed our proposal in the house over 10 weeks ago. I'm really hopeful that it will get it done this week because people just can't wait any longer, right? I'm hearing from 100 the folks in the community who are suffering who needed now It just has to get done. And I have to get done this week. Colorado Congressman Jason Crow. Thank you for your time.

"Of the impeachment trial of president Donald J. trump I'm Jamie Floyd the host of All Things Considered at W. NYC and also the legal editor at W. NYC the house managers and the president's defense team have finished making it their closing arguments before the full Senate today we are headed toward an impeachment vote on Wednesday whether to convict or acquit to the president the vote is scheduled for four PM Wednesday after we expect to hear from a quick with around to the full Senate each senator making a short case the Senate expected to acquit the president on both articles of impeachment listeners have you been listening do you still think it matters do you care if so tell us why tweet or call two one two four three three nine six nine two two one two four three three W. N. Y. C. tweet me act Jamie Floyd do you wonder why the Senate is a moving ahead with conviction or acquittal or maybe you have the answer two one two four three three nine six nine two two one two four three three W. NYC we do want to hear from you joining me now David Greenberg he's a professor of history and journalism everything you need for this conversation also media studies to at records university a contributing editor to politico magazine where he writes a regular column professor Greenberg thank you so much for being with us on this very important day well thank you the one thing I I don't have is a law degree but you have said we've got it covered we we've got it covered is perhaps the Senate does not now we know it would take a two thirds vote to remove this president from office by my count that's twenty Republicans and I imagine you'll agree with me there's nothing to indicate those votes are there right and I would have agreed with you that you said that back in September as well I think this has been a giant foregone conclusion for all the drama and interest is generated I I really don't think the outcome was never in doubt the professor in the course of the trial we had the revelation that former national security adviser John Bolton I has an upcoming book describing a conversation with president Donald Trump about withholding aid from Ukraine that's the very thing with which president trump has been charged with with which he stands accused why does that not mean anything here well I think it would have meant something if this had been the from the start a kind of a good faith process of consideration of the evidence by the Republicans but I think it was fairly clear from early on and I think we saw this in other votes in the Senate I mean one could look at the bright cabin on confirmation any number of other roads most of the senators whatever their private he'll concerns or dislike or problems with president trump this is a long time ago they were going to stand by him and that's why I say it was a forgone conclusion even had Bolton testified even had his book manuscript been admitted into evidence I find it very hard to believe that really any of them would have switched their votes but certainly not that the twenty Republicans would have switch that would have been necessary to removed from from office so that's why I call it a foregone conclusion during the closing arguments and will highlight portions of both the house managers some people like to refer to them as Democrats but I like to at least maintain the fiction that we have eight constitutional process here going on the house managers a representative Jason crow he said quote the GOP stood with Nixon at through Watergate because he was a popular conservative president and his base was with him but as Goldwater would later tell Nixon there were only so many lies that we could take and now there have been one too many and and I later all focus on some of the president's defense team but but why is it professor has impeachment in this case unraveled so differently this time around than it did in the case of president Nixon it's a very interesting historical question you know the first answer I reach for is to see the tapes that Nixon we have these teeth that clearly implicated him in crimes in a cover up and once the Supreme Court ruled that those tapes had to be turned over as evidence it became very hard to defend him however yeah I'm not sure that even today trumps voice on tape with a clear cut commission of a crime would have been enough I think there's also been a change in the parties and that the ideological diversity or had originated the that used to see really in both parties but for our purposes in the Republican Party no longer exist so these Republican senators just aren't insurable to more liberal or moderate voters in the same way that perhaps they were in the Nixon years and I think that also account for some of the willingness to sort of talk about the conservative line so yes we could get beyond the room where it happened beyond the reported and of course we've not seen that manuscript that The New York Times it has reported on the John Bolton manuscript but if we could maybe get inside the vault this volts that seems to exist within the White House even if there were some tapes or some transcripts or that none of that would be perhaps enough in this heightened political Europe well that's that's exactly what I suspect I mean look you always have to and want to hold out hope that us that a certain point the sheer weight of that evidence will change people's minds that at a certain point people will put aside their prior convictions their their partisan loyalties the way they've made up their mind and look at things with fresh eyes I think the problem with our political culture you know not just in this instance of impeachment but for the last several years has been that that seems il increasingly uncommon for for anyone to do it but especially I think on the right these days and so it I think it's an open question would be even even more overwhelming evidence than the Republicans were confronted with change many minds you know I I did it you know it is unfortunate to say but I I think not that at this moment in time let's take a call we have Candace she's calling in from Toms River New Jersey you're on with David Greenberg of records New Jersey yeah can you hear me the sensor can hear Candace yes we can hear you yeah okay fantastic I'm just curious to know what you think Republicans would be so hesitant to allow Mike to take over would bring some core back to the White House I don't agree with the conservative agenda much someone with a little more diplomacy someone with a little more which in the White House and I think that the senators would also like to see that as well with the whole thing about this guy from the very beginning is that how you know what hello one unusual his style was so what I want to know what it what they've been so hesitant to allow someone like Mike who has a little more to call them what class to the presidency would they not want to take over well thank you thank you for your call and and David you are a presidential historian I it in addition to all of the credentials I named at the beginning what about that part of this political story I I I wanted to frame this moment as a constitutional moment and process but what it why that resistance well let's frame it differently what why such loyalty to president trump when we do have a a perfectly capable vice president whatever one might think of his his policies liberals perhaps like Candice might not like his policies but he he certainly up to the task well look I think if you were to privately ask Republican senators who you know is starting at a blank slate they would rather make president trump or pants they would probably pick I think he's right there's a lot about trump his style the way he treats people and and so on as well as some of his deviations from service standard conservative orthodoxy that a lot of them dislike but it's not occurring in an in a vacuum it's occurring as a challenge to trump's power and so to go with the Democrats to remove him would simply be seen as handing the Democrats of victory and I think the Republicans simply would not want that also do we think Mike pence would be such a strong contender for two thousand twenty he's not a guy with trump's charisma trump tower he has shown himself to command anything like the following among at least a lot of voters that that from Pat so I think it would seem he would have a kind of placeholder president in an election year that would probably make a lot of them very uneasy about holding the White House so that probably also is is part of their thinking let's consider it because I did say I wanted to be as balanced as I cool and what Pat civil long he said in his closing argument it's a slightly different take on what we've been discussing but a fair point I believe quote he said the American people are tired of the endless investigations and false investigations that have been coming out of the house cleaning the house of representatives since the beginning it's a waste of tax dollars now what about that point to the V. D. sort of analysts ness of it V. exhaustion everyone feels and the expense as a political scientist and historian is that a fair point well I certainly think he's right that there is an exhaustion about it and especially because as I said before there wasn't much doubt about how it was all gone and so it sort of felt like you were kind of sitting through a movie you know you know how it how it's gonna turn out and so I think he's right that there is a lot of fatigue with the whole process frustration it breaks down along those who DO are fed up with trump and his presidency and those who are set up with the Democrats on willingness to accept him as well I know you might say as a legitimate president or at least to sort of kind of back off and make it not you switch me on most Democrats are not prepared to do so it's a problem we always get when people complain about conflict or gridlock or deadlock well who's and cling to relent and so baloney obviously the you know feels the Democrats should real and and and and they see it differently let's go to Mike in Hackensack Mike thanks for calling in have you been listening have you been watching I have been not and ever since this began I have been run it is what it is as I explained to the screen I think it although I also agree that it was a forgone pretty much foregone conclusion not final outcome was going to be I think it serves to very good purposes and the first being that if people I think their vote doesn't count has that I think they now realize where this whole process would be if the Democrats had taken the house majority in the mid term elections and the other being that regardless of the outcome which we now kind of but people are going to realize they're going to they're they're being exposed to all of this and each that's why I think it's good and I think that sounds that's thirty million I believe people that didn't vote in the in the sixteen elections this may spur a lot more people to vote and as you can tell by what I'm saying of course I'm a Liberal Democrats that's all we allow an active Zach anyway thanks for your call Mike do you think David do you think you're putting on your political science had or your history hat or your or your journalism at David Greenberg do you think this has raised awareness about the importance of journalism do you agree with mine I'm sorry the importance of voting we have boards of journalism all of it democracy I do think that for those who tuned in you know which was probably not as great you know a percentage of the electorate as we might hope those of us who you know imagine a physically engaged citizenry but I think for those who tuned in it does sort of fire up the motivation to vote now I think that's probably the case on both sides that is I think you know trump's critics are furious it is that you know even though they knew it was going to happen that he's going to get all I think from supporters lower also probably going to be fired up by this they're angrier than ever at the Democrats so how how this plays and how strong the fires will still be by November which is a long way away it's very hard to predict but I'm the mood I sense from people is very much like the mood around election day two thousand eighteen right now that there's a desire to take action to do what we can even if even if it's of voting which is not nothing so I I think the caller may may have a good point what do you make of the fact that going back all the way back to Friday when we had the conversation about witnesses are and whether or not witnesses would be called that that was really the the the tension the.

misconduct by president trump regarding U. crane but instead of holding the president's corrupt scheme they work overtime to conceal it from the American people as additional evidence of the

people as we have discussed at length on July tenth ambassador someone told the Ukrainians and other US officials that he had a deal with acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to schedule the White House meeting president the Lynskey one if the new Ukrainian leader committed to the phony investigations that president trump saw as you've seen in testimony sharing shown during this trial following that meeting National Security Council officials Dr Fiona hill and lieutenant colonel Alexander been men immediately reported this information to John Eisenberg the legal adviser for the National Security Council and the deputy counsel to the president according to doctor hill Mr Eisenberg told her that he was also concerned about that July tenth meeting all this rain is doctor hills deposition testimony which he explains Mr Eisenberg's reaction saying I mean he wasn't aware that someone invested a someone was kind of running around doing a lot of these meetings and independently we talked about the fact that ambassador silence said he'd been meeting with Giuliani and he was very concerned about that and he said that he would follow up on this Eisenberg was very concerned about that and said that he would follow up on this doctor hill further testified that Mr Eisenberg told her that he followed up with his boss the distinguished White House counsel Patsy belong however because the president block Mr Eisenberg from testifying in the house we do not know what if anything he will miss the simple loan did in response to this deeply troubling information what we do know is that president trump effort to cheat continued with reckless abandon by failing to put the brakes on the wrong doing after that July tenth meeting even after one note after they were notified by concern national security officials the White House attorneys allowed it to continue unchecked right around the same time that is a lie tenth meetings at the White House took place the office of management and budget began executing president trump's illegal order to withhold all security assistance from Ukraine on July twelve Robert Plant assistant to the president communicated the hold to the acting director of the office of management and budget Russell vote on July eighteenth and office of management and budget official communicated the whole other executive branch agencies including the department of state and the department of defense and a week later on July twenty fifth president trump had is in perfect telephone call the president the Lynskey indirectly pressured the Ukrainian leader to commence phony political investigations as part of his effort to cheat and solicit foreign interference in the twenty twenty election the July twenty fifth call mark an important turning point if there was any question among senior White House officials and it turns about whether president trump was directly involved in the Ukraine scheme as opposed to just a rogue operation being led by Rudolph guiliani or some other underlings after July twenty fifth there can be no mistake the president of the United States was undoubtedly calling the shots house impeachment manager congressman Hakeem Jeffries Senate trial live thereafter the complicity of White House officials with respect to the cover up but the president's misconduct intensified immediately after the July twenty fifth call both lieutenant colonel vin man and his direct supervisor Tim Morrison reported their concerns about the call to Mr Eisenberg and his deputy Michael Ellis in fact within an hour after the July twenty fifth call lieutenant colonel basement returned again a second time to Mr Eisenberg and reported his concerns I was concerned by the call what I heard was inappropriate and I reported my concerns to Mr Eisenberg is improper for the president of the United States to demand for government investigate a US citizen and a political opponents I was also clear that if Ukraine pursued investigation it was it was also clear that if Ukraine pursuit investigation into the two thousand sixteen elections the bidens and very smart it will be interpreted as a parts in play this would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing by Parsons for undermining US national security and investing Russia's strategic objectives in the reason region I want to emphasize to the committee that when I record my concerns are July tenth relating to master someone and on July twenty fifth relating to the president I did so out of a sense of duty I probably report my concerns an official channels to the proper authority in the chain of command my intent was to raise these concerns because they had significant national security implications for our country I never thought I'd be sitting here testifying in front of this committee and American public about my actions when I reported my concerns my only thought was to act properly and to carry out my duty Timothy Morrison the National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia also reported a call to Mr Eisenberg and asked him to review the call which he feared would be damaging if Lee Mister Morrison shortly after you heard the July twenty fifth call you testified that you alerted the NSC legal adviser John Eisenberg pretty much right away is that right correct and you indicated in your opening statement released from your your deposition that you went to Mr Eisenberg out of concern over the potential political fallout if the call record became public and not because he thought it was a legal is that right correct but you you would agree right that asking a foreign government to investigate a domestic political rival is inappropriate would you not that's not what was all we recommend to the president discuss three years he's been radio programming from fright July twenty fifth call was at least the second time the National Security Council officials have reported concerns about president trump's pressure campaign to White House lawyers the second time who now clearly understood the gravity of the ongoing misconduct but because the president block Mr Eisenberg from testifying without any justification the record is silent as to what if any actions he well the White House counsel took to address president trump's brazen misconduct and abuse of power we do know however then instead of trying to hold the scheme White House lawyers facilitated it by taking affirmative steps to conceal evidence of president trump's misconduct for example after lieutenant colonel been minimus the Marcin reported their concerns related to the July twenty fifth call to the National Security Council lawyers they tried to bury the call summary he tried to bury it ten a colonel them and testified that the National Security Council lawyers believe it was quote appropriate to restrict access to the call summary for the purpose of the leaks and to preserve the integrity of the transcript according to lieutenant colonel been minister Eisenberg gave the go ahead to restrict access to the call summary Morrison testified they learned in late August after he raised concerns that the call record might leak and politically damage the president at the call summary had been placed on a highly classified National Security Council server the call record was placed on a server that is reserved for America's most sensitive national security secrets and covert operations not routine calls with foreign leaders apparently Mr Eisenberg claims the time that burying the call transcript on a highly classified server was a mistake now in its second meeting with Mr Eisenberg what would you recommend that he do to prevent the call record from leaking I recommended we restrict access to the package have you ever asked the NSC legal adviser to restrict access before no did you speak to your supervisor doctor Kupperman before you went to speak to John Eisenberg now did you subsequently learned that the call records had been put in a highly classified system I did and what reason did Mr Eisenberg give you for why the call record was put in highly classified system it was a mistake he said it was just a mistake if there was an administrative error I miss the Marcin view the July twenty fifth call record did not meet the requirements to be placed on a highly classified server that is the position Morrison testified at the call record was placed on the server by mistake however even after this alleged mistake was on cover July twenty fifth call summary was not removed.

"That was congressman Jason crow Democrat from Colorado one of the house impeachment managers we're now going to hear what we think may be a rapper from house intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff the lead house impeachment manager senators just for your orientation this will be the last presentation on article one of and Mr leader I think at the conclusions presentational be a logical point to take a break this is the last section on article one deals with the injury to our national interest in our national security the president trump used Ukraine's leader for political favor and with held critical military aid to an ally in exchange for that favor he did exactly what our framers feared most he invited foreign interference in our elections and sold out our country security for his personal benefit and betrayed the nation's trust to a foreign power the present scheme to pressure you crane to do is political dirty work harmed or national security undermined are free and fair elections and even today even today threatens the very foundation of our democracy when the president argues that his call was perfect that he did nothing wrong what he's really saying is that there's nothing wrong with the president asking a foreign government to do a personal favor that there's nothing wrong with the president pressuring that foreign country to interfere in our elections for his personal benefit that there's nothing wrong with withholding congressionally appropriated taxpayer funded military assistance to that foreign country to extort that country to help the president cheat to win an election but there are a great many things wrong with that most significant for the purposes that bring us here today the constitution does not permit it and the constitution does not permit it because that conduct is the quintessential abuse of power the use of official power for personal gain putting personal interest over the national interest and placing personal benefits over our nation's security the president's conduct that we outlined yesterday harm to our national security that is without a doubt it endangered our elections and it sent our country on a dangerous path that if left unchecked we'll call is irrevocable damage to the balance of power contemplated in our constitution if someone sacrifices the national interest in favor of his own and is not removed from office our democracy is in jeopardy it's just that simple the grave consequences of president trump's misconduct demand our attention let me take these issues in turn beginning with this harm to national security first the president's abuse of power had immediate consequences to our security Ukraine is a burgeoning democracy and tangled in a hot war with Russia by withholding military aid president trump not only denied Ukraine much needed military equipment but also we can Ukraine's position in negotiations over the end of the war with Russia because the presence from president trump's corrupt actions Vladimir Putin was in Bolton at a pivotal moment ahead of those sensitive negotiations to attempt to end the war and emboldened Russia is a threat to the United States and global security around the world the president's willingness to put himself over country under cut our European allies confidence in America's commitment to deterring Russian aggression and its signal to adversaries and friends alike that the president of the United States the most powerful man in the world our commander in chief could be influenced by manipulating his perception of what was best for his personal interests no I have no doubt that the Russians in probably every other nation that has the capacity does a psychological profile of the president of the United States as we profile other leaders if a president can be so easily manipulated to disbelieve his own intelligence agencies to accept the propaganda of the Kremlin that is a threat to our national security and that is just what is happened here but that's not all president trump's willingness to untangle our foreign allies in a crop political errand also undermined the credibility of Americans to promote the rule of law and fight corruption abroad this is trump first not American first non American ideals first and the result has and will continue to be great harm to our nation if this chamber does not stand up and say it is wrong if you do not stand up and say this is not only wrong not only unacceptable but conduct incompatible with the office of the presidency and if it really is incompatible with the office of the presidency if you cannot faithfully execute that responsibility if you cannot bring yourself to put your nation's interests ahead of your own it must be impeachable or the nation remains at risk let's consider the big picture here and probably a question many people around the country ask white is Ukraine matter to the United States what is your cream out of the United States because we're talking about small country many people know very little about well this small country this ally of ours is a country hungry for reform and eager for a stronger relation with its most in powerful important ally the United States and we're talking about ourselves and what it means the strength of our own democracy and democracies around the world within countries like Ukraine are fighting our fight against authoritarianism at least that used to be our fight and god help us if it's not our flight still Russian president Putin declared the collapse of the Soviet Union to be the greatest geo political catastrophe of the twentieth century Ukraine's vote for independence in December nineteen ninety one was the final nail in the Soviet union's coffin that made you cranes greatest moment Putin's greatest tragedy when it declared independence from Soviet domination Ukraine inherited roughly nineteen hundred Soviet nuclear warheads enough fire power to level every major American city several times over nineteen hundred Soviet nuclear warheads in exchange for Ukraine surrendering this arsenal the United States Russia and the United Kingdom reached an understanding called the Budapest memorandum memorandum of nineteen ninety four they continued they committed in this memorandum to respecting the borders of an independent Ukraine and also to refrain from using the threat or use of force against Ukraine this was an early success of the post Cold War period despite its commitment to respect Ukraine's independence of course Russia continue to meddle in Ukraine's affairs ambassador Taylor recounted how events took it even more sinister turn in twenty thirteen the west but in twenty thirteen Vladimir Putin was so threatened by the prospect of Ukraine joining the European Union they tried to bribe the Ukrainian president this triggered mass protests in the winter of twenty thirteen that drove the Pratt that president to flee to Russia in twenty fourteen February twenty fourteen but not before his forces killed a hundred Ukrainian protesters in central cave angered by the fall of the Kremlin backed leader in Kiev president Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine specifically a region known as Crimea Russia's aggression was met with global condemnation.

"Great texted again saying quote counting on you to be right about this interview Gordan master Simon responded quote bill I never said I was right I said we are where we are and believe we have identified the best pathway forward let's hope it works ambassador Taylor replied quote as I said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign here it is once again in clear text message between three US officials it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign think about that if there was no quid pro quo then why did everybody know about well ambassador Taylor told us why to here's his testimony as I said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign what did you mean when you said you thought it was crazy this call in I mentioned that the important because of the importance of security assistance at that we just described I had a conversation with with the chairman because that was so important at security just was so important for Ukraine as well as our own national interest to withhold that assistance for no good reason other than help with the political campaign make no sense it was it was counterproductive all of what we have been trying to do it was a logical it could not be explained it was crazy when you say all of what we were trying to do what do you mean by we I mean that the United States was trying to support Ukraine as a frontline state against Russian attack and again the the whole notion of a rules based order was being threatened by the Russians in Ukraine so our security systems was designed to support your great that's it that it was not just United States it was all of our of our allies when you reference help with a political campaign in this in this text message what did you mean I meant that the investigation of the response and the buttons was clearly identified by Mister Julia Giuliani in public for months as a way to get information on on the on the two by now that testimony is really clear and it makes sense it's consistent with all of the evidence used being here today that's a quid pro quo as clear as two plus two equals four and what happened is next also makes sense someone got scared Taylor was making clear that he didn't agree with this game in response the Taylors text message message that it was quote crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign someone repeated again the falls denial of a quid pro quo at five seventeen AM sound then responded to tailor quote bill I believe you are incorrect about president trump's intentions the president has been crystal clear no quid pro quos anytime of any kind the president is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is truly going to adopt the transparency and reforms the president's Lynskey promised during his campaign I suggest we stop the back and forth by tax if you still have concerns I recommend you give Lisa cannot or **** secretary gone pale a call to discuss them directly thanks now that text message says very clearly that there are no quid pro quos of any kind so in this story right case closed but someone's testimony revealed this taxed and the president's denial were false just like president trump when ambassador Simon thought he was getting caught he got nervous any wanted to deny it in writing to cover his tracks that's why he suddenly says quote I suggest we stop the back and forth by taxed again quit putting this in writing we know what that sounds good I own the tax was false as later when he was under oath under penalty of perjury he actually said a quid pro quo did exist WCS before was there a quid pro quo as I testified previously with regard to the requested White House call in the White House meeting the answer is yes the answer is yes it's clear that president trump himself confirmed that the aid was condition on the public announcement of the investigations that the president wanted to get Ukraine to help him with his own reelection campaign the president of the United States violated the law by withholding nearly four hundred million dollars of taxpayer dollars intended to fight Russia he put his own interests over the country and that is why we are here Mister Chief Justice and members of the Senate in deference to our proposed schedule and and the late hour I'm now going to yield to my colleague Mister chef to provide a brief recap of today and then we will begin again in the morning house manager Jason crow is the afternoon senator is a Chief Justice presents council been a long day and we start out the day with the chapel in asking for empathetic listening and I think that that is certainly what you have delivered for us today I know you've been bombarded with information all day and when you leave this chamber you are bombarded again by members of the press there is no refuge I know and I just want to thank you for keeping an open mind about all the issues that we are presenting an open mind for us an open mind for the president's council that's all that we can ask for and having watched you now for three days whether it is someone you're predisposed to agree with or predisposed not to it is abundantly clear that you are listening with an open mind and we can't ask for anything more than that so we are grateful at the beginning of the trial you may have seen the president tweeted now tweet a lot but tweeted a common refrain read the transcript so I thought at the end of the evening I would join in the president's request that you re read the transcript now that you know a lot more of the facts of this scheme it reveals a lot more about that conversation and let me just point out a few things that may have escaped your attention about that transcript is not really a transcript because it's not complete let me just tell you a few things that may have escaped your attention about that call record now we've already talked about I won't go into it again the the pivotal sections where he talks about crowds strike any asked for that favor anyone's investigation of the bites there is a lot more to that call now that you know so much more about that scheme let me just point out a few things that really struck my attention early in the call presents the Lynskey says we brought in many new people many many new people not the old politicians not the typical politicians because we want to have a new format and a new type of governments again this is the July twenty fifth call and early in the call presidents wins he wants to impress upon president trump he's brought in new people but he's a reformer this was his campaign pledges reformers coming and he's bringing new people so if there had been any concern about corruption in Ukraine is bring in new people he's a reformer that's one of the first messages that he wants to get across and you can better well believe that he is prepared for this call because he needs that White House meeting so everything he says is prepared early on he wants to make sure he let the person know he's a reformer now the president has his own agenda in this call and immediately after that in the next exchange the president makes this point the United States has been very very good to Ukraine I wouldn't say that it's reciprocal necessarily because things are happening that are not good but the United States has been very very good to Ukraine this is very interesting that he brings up very early in the conversation this relationship is not reciprocal we've been very very good to Ukraine but you know can't say there's much coming the other way now you'll remember that bill Taylor had this reaction to talk in accordance common once long list as Donald Trump is a business man before he writes the check he likes to get what is owed and tells her action as well that makes no sense because you crying doesn't owe us anything well Donald Trump in this call you can see does the keys this is what he's talking about when he says there's not much reciprocity here he thinks he's the something you wanna get this military you want to get this meeting I don't see much reciprocity here he thinks he's owed something when you when you read that passage Immunol about that he's a businessman before he signed the check that that takes on new meaning now a little later in the call the lens he says I will personally tell you that one of my associates spoke with Mr Giuliani just recently and we are hoping very much that Mr Giuliani will be able to travel to Ukraine and we will meet once it comes to Ukraine now you should read this carefully yourself but this may be the first mention Giuliani and so it is bringing him up and saying well I'd really like to meet with Giuliani now this is your line what we know now about the meeting between Giuliani insolence we know that Giuliani in may you wanted to go we was a listing we saw that letter from Giuliani I wanna go me was Lynskey we know we was rebuffed or something happened because he didn't get that meeting any was angry and it went on TV and he said so once he is surrounded by enemies of trump right socialist is prepared for this call and he knows it's going to resonate with Donald Trump if he says I'd like to meet Rudy Giuliani and immediately thereafter immediately right after that he says we're hoping very much Mr Julie I'll be able to travel a great we will meet once he comes you're crying immediately thereafter the next sentence he says I just wanted to assure you once again you have nobody but friends around us now we could have read this transcript to early early on that would have meant much to you but now the you know the Rudy Giuliani was out there on TV saying Zelinsky is surrounded by enemies of trump you can see why is the Lynskey says you've got nobody but friends around us any goes on I also wanted to tell you that we are friends he brings a friendship again we are great friends that's the third time he wants to underscore what great friends they are and why because Rudy Giuliani's been saying their enemies and then he goes on to say I also plan to surround myself with great people and addition to that investigation I guarantee is the present a crane that all the investigation will be done openly and candidly that I can assure you he needs to assure the president is going to get is deliverable right because it's been made clear before this call what the president wants to hear more than that what the president needs to hear he needs to.

"Just as the house managers reserve the balance of our time for an opportunity to respond to the president's argument thank you secular alright that was Jason crow just speaking there by the house managers now this is president trump's lawyer J. secular the manager crow you should be happy to know that the aid that was provided to you crying over the course of the president's administration included lethal weapons those were not provided by the previous administration the suggestion that the Ukraine failed to get any equipment this false the security assistant was not for funding Ukraine over the summer of twenty nineteen there was no lack of equipment due to the temporary pause it was future funding view craning the deputy minister of defence who oversaw US aid shipments said the hold came and went so quickly they did not notice any change undersecretary of state David Hale explain the pause Dave was future assistance not to keep the army going now so the made up narrative that's security assistance was condition on Ukraine taking some action on investigations is further just provided straight forward fact that the aid was delivered on September eleventh twenty nineteen without Ukraine taking any action on any investigation it's interesting to note that the Obama administration with held five hundred eighty five million dollars of promised aid to Egypt in twenty thirteen but the ministrations public message was that the money was not officially on hold as technically it was not due until September thirty the end of the fiscal year so they have to disclose the hall to anyone sounds like this may be a practice a number of ministrations in back to the president this president has been concerned about how eight is being put forward so there have been pauses on foreign aid in a variety of contexts in September of twenty nineteen the administration announced that it was withholding over one hundred million dollars in aid to Afghanistan over concerns about government corruption in August of twenty nineteen isn't in trouble now so the administration and soul were in talks to substantially increase Seoul Korea South Korea's share of the expense of US military support for South Korea in June president trump caught cut paused over five hundred and fifty million dollars in foreign aid to El Salvador Honduras and Guatemala because those countries were not fairly fairly sharing the burdens of preventing mass migration to the United States it's not the only administration as I said president Obama withheld hundreds of millions of dollars of aid to Egypt to be clear I want to be clear invest your your Bonaventure self testified that our policy actually got stronger under president trump largely because unlike the Obama administration quote this administration made the decision to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine to help Ukraine fend off Russian aggression she testified in a deposition before your very smitteez that actually I felt that in the three years that I was there partly because of my efforts but also the interagency team and president trump's decision to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine but our policy actually got stronger Deputy Assistant Secretary can't names come up a couple of times agree that javelins are in credibly effective weapons at stopping armored advance and the Russians are scared of them ambassador Volker explained that president trump approved each of the decisions made along the way and as a result America's policy toward Ukraine strengthened but we want to talk about fax go to your discovery and the your own witnesses that you called this all supposedly started because of a whistle blower where is that whistleblower the house managers have thirty five minutes remaining Mister Chief Justice add more time a matter and we are back to Jason Cronin it's his manager in a crowd of Colorado's so the idea that well it made it bearer of ventrally just doesn't work and yes the aid was provided it was provided by Congress this Senate in the house of representatives with the president's signature the Congress is the one that sends the eight and millions of dollars of this aid would have been lost because of the delay had Congress not actually passed another law that extended that deadline to allow the funds to be spent let me repeat that the delay had jeopardize the expenditure of the money to such an extent that Congress had to pass another law to extend the deadline so the money in the equipment got to the people on the front lines we are also reiterate this suppose that inter agency process yeah the concerns that the president and his counsel continue to raise about corruption and making sure that the process when right there was no inter agency process the whole thing was made up it was a phantom there was a delay and delays matter Mr out you justice I reserve the balance of my time for Mr chef Mr Schiff Jason crow passing the baton back to Adam each moment understand few disappoints I'd like to make on this amendment and on my colleagues arguments first of all Mr cycle makes the point that the eight ultimately got released they ultimately got the money right yes they got the money after the president got caught after the president was forced to real relieve the hold on the aid after he got caught yes but even then even then they held on to the aid so long that it took a subsequent act of Congress to make sure it could all go out the door so what is the present supposed to get credit for that that we had to intervene because he withheld the aid so long and that's the only reason you crane got all of the aid that we approved in the first place my colleagues and gloss over the fact that what they did was illegal that the J. all with independent watchdog agency found that that hold was illegal so not only violated the law it not only took an act of Congress to make sure they ultimately got the aid this is this is supposed to be the defense to why you should see the documents is is that what we're to believe now counsel also says well you know he's not the first president to withhold a and that's true after all council says well known president Obama withheld aid to Egypt yes at the urging of members of Congress centers McRae McCain and Graham urge that that aid be withheld and why because there was a revolution in Egypt after was appropriated it wasn't something that was hidden from Congress that was a pretty darn good reason to think that we still want to give aid to this government after this revolution we're not saying that it is never been withheld that's absurd but I would hope and expect this is the first time eight has been with held by a present United States to chorus an ally at war to help in cheap in the next election I think that's a first but what we do here made the term and whether it's the last and one other thing about this pause in aid right the argument well no harm no foul okay you got caught the got the aid what's the big deal well as we heard during the trial it's not just the eight many eight is honestly the most important thing as Mister crow mentioned you know without you can't defend yourself and we'll have testimony about just what kind of military aid to present was withholding but we also had testimony that it was the fact of the aid itself that was so important to cram the fact that the United States had Ukraine's back and why because this new president of Ukraine this new untested former comedian president of Ukraine at war with Russia was going to be going into a negotiation with Vladimir Putin with an eye to ending the conflict and whether you wanted to that negotiation from a position of strength or a position of weakness would depend on whether we had is back and so when the Ukrainians learned and the Russians learned that the present United States did not have his back was withholding this aid what message do you think that center Vladimir Putin what message you think incentive Latimer Putin when Donald Trump wouldn't let Latimer's isn't ski our ally in the door of the White House but with let the Russian foreign minister what message does that send so it's not just the eight it's not just when the aid as leverage not just if all of the aid is delivered it's also what message does the freeze sent to our friend and even more importantly to our phone and the messages sent was a disaster was a disaster now you might ask yourself his counselor said Hey president trump was given lethal weapons to Ukraine you might ask yourself if the present was so concerned about corruption why did he do that in twenty seventeen and why did you do that in twenty eighteen why was it only twenty nineteen there was a problem was there no corruption in Ukraine and twenty seventeen was there no corruption in Ukraine and twenty eighteen no you can as always battle corruption it wasn't the presence or lack of corruption and one year to another it was the presence of Joe Biden as a potential candidate for president that was the key change in twenty nineteen that made all the difference which can gets back to one of the key moments in this saga you know what a lot of you are attorneys you're probably much better attorneys and I am and I'm sure you had experience in case if you tried where there was some vignettes some conversation some document it may not have been the most important on its face but it it told you something about the case that was much larger than that conversation for me one of those conversations was not on July twenty fifth between president trump and presents Lynskey but on July twenty six the very next day now you may have watched some of the house proceedings you may have and people watching Nancy and maybe they didn't but there's a scene in Ukrainian restaurant to restaurant in key with Gordon's silent now bear in mind Gordon someone who said there was absolutely a quid pro quo in two plus two equals four this is not some never Trumper this is a million dollar donor to the trump inauguration okay if there's a bias there is clearly a million dollar bias in favor of this present against the so there's a scene in key in this restaurant and someone has a cell phone and he's sitting with David Holmes who is a career diplomat U. S. diplomat in the Ukraine embassy I'm Gordon someone takes out his phone and he called the White House Gordon someone holding for the White House golden sun one only for the president and it takes awhile become active he's connected to the present that's pretty impressive right this isn't some guy with no relationship to the president the president may say Gordon some I've barely known or something to that effect but this is a guy could take a cell phone you can call the present United States from restaurant eve and he does and the presence was so loud that David a whole new system I can hear it and what is the president's say does he say how is that reform coming in a rod how does the attack on corruption going no he just says is he going to do the investigation his own skin and go to do the investigation and someone says yes.

"Back in right now because Jason crow was up there doing whatever chasing crow was doing what whatever he was doing was very short so he is no longer the energy secular hours now if there is one of the trump defense attorneys seems to do a good job in today by the way has been mostly about process of hairiness subpoenaed documents from the White House no that vote along party lines but ninety final vote because the B. another vote on that after they've heard from both sides and it should take about three four days big news of the day's Christy Burke brown is in studio with us if you know Christy you're thrilled if you don't know Christy prepare to be thrilled because she is really something currently among many other things vice chair of the GOP in Colorado so Christy as we go to hot sound of the day ring people up to speed status report on the GOP you know last week new there was this white powder in eighteen and we talk and that's all the different reasons for the half there's this white powder in eighteen and everybody's wondering Hey is the Colorado G. O. P. still relevant well it tell people what's going on right now yeah I'd love to think stand I think without question the car G. O. P. is still very relevant in our state and I think the number one thing the Democrats would love everyone out there to believe is that Republicans should just go away and honestly lipstick Republican out of if you're conservative if you believe in freedom the Democrats would like you to go away and like you to think that they have full control over our state is I think that's why you hear corals blew the Democrats are control there's no hope for Republicans it twenty two was a bad year but really they wanna break are well and I can guarantee with Ken Buck congressman can book at the end in charge of the Colorado GOP and myself as the vice chair the last thing we're gonna do we have a voice as Republicans of conservatives people who love freedom and I think that's what twenty twenty is going to be about is an election about freedom do you think the government to control your lives or do you like the freedom of the Republican Party stands behind and and as a as a status update fundraising is going incredibly well with the Republican Party I think people saw in twenty nineteen that we could win with proposition CC the voters are still with us they are fiscally conservative they would like their money in their pockets for their family and not in the hands of the government and we won on that Democrats are pretty upset about that chair pulls left for India that the day before the elections I think it's a real upset I think he was going to happen and that was that was really great when and our our people are seeing it when we fight that was when the most unified conservative have ever been in Colorado in about a decade we fight like that together we can win and that's what we're doing in twenty twenty laying on the ground work right now we have a ton of projects going on some really novel and unique things and we're take it to the ground I think we're gonna see some victories and I I love to hear you talk about infrastructure because I really do believe that's what the Democrats have been doing very well and I have fled the GOP is gearing up for that but Jason crow is pop back up to the Mike this is a life right now I can you bring us in there for sekarang is the eight and millions of dollars of this aid would have been lost because of the delay had Congress not actually passed another law that extended bad deadline to allow the funds to be spent let me repeat that the delay had jeopardize the expenditure of the money to such an extent the Congress had to pass another law to extend the deadline put the money in the equipment got to the people on the front lines.

Rep. Jason Crow: The President deserves a fair trial

"It's impeachment week on Capitol Hill as the Senate gets set to take up the case officially tomorrow against president trump Colorado Democrat congressman Jason crow is one of seven impeachment managers he talked with CNN's state of the union over the weekend asking people to look at the whole situation is about jeopardizing our national security our troops it's about undermining our free and fair elections Crowe also says that leaving bribery out of the impeachment articles was not a mistake in the Senate there's still a dispute on how to handle the case Senate Democrats tomorrow are likely to force a vote on their desired witnesses which include former national security adviser John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney but that effort is likely to fail largely along party lines Republicans sent Susan Collins has said she supports waiting until arguments from both sides have been presented before deciding on witnesses as was done in the Clinton impeachment trial the trials exact schedule rules and length remain unclear but the White House signaled last week that it anticipates the proceedings will wrap up within two weeks at the White House John decker

Colorado’s Jason Crow will help prosecute Trump in Senate

"As house Democrats work through the weekend to prepare for the Senate trial perhaps the most unexpected impeachment manager is congressman Jason crow he's a former army ranger and attorney who slipped a Republican seat to win in Colorado and he went from not supporting anti blows his bid for house speaker to becoming one of her choices to prosecute the case against president trump joining me now is Colorado congressman Jason crow conocen thank you so much for being here morning good to be on out so just last night and you saw this the trump legal team put out a skating six six page response to your impeachment trial memo calling impeachment quote brazen and unlawful quote highly partisan and reckless and it says the president trump categorically and unequivocally denies each and every allegation and it says that neither article of impeachment even constitutes an impeach an impeachable offense at all what's your response to that well my responses here this fits the president's power you know he he continues to deflect off of his own behavior trying to attack the messenger my immediate responses yeah let's call the witnesses that you know he has said that his call was a perfect call he said that he's done nothing wrong so let's have the people that are in the best position to confirm that come in and testify before the U. S. Senate that's what over seventy percent of the American people are asking for the president deserves a fair trial the American people deserve a fair trial so let's have that fair trial when you found out your impeachment manager was a complete surprise to you I was surprised I I hadn't been a lobbying for this it was called in to speak speak with the leadership and you know I was surprised to be asked that was humbled to be asked to represent my colleagues in the at the house of representatives in the country I during this really important trial and as I just mentioned in twenty nineteen you did not support speaker Pelosi as she sought the speakership I wonder now in retrospect now you are one of these key Democrats in impeachment do you feel differently about the judgment that she's displayed through this process well I've always had a fantastic relationship with speaker Pelosi and she's done a really great job over the past year navigating the house through a very difficult very challenging time you know she's a lead in a very very thoughtful way and I think what the selection of these managers shows is that politics doesn't play a part in the speaker has wanted to put a team together that represents the diversity of this country the diversity of the caucus who can bring the case make the case that regarding National Security abuse of power and and all the things the president did in and make that case in a good way you want witnesses do you want love parn Asti indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani has provided a bunch of documents some of which are incredibly helpful for Democrats but he's maybe someone with a credibility issue to say the least well I'm not going to get into any one particular witness that I can say the managers are meeting and talking regularly I with our team the considering who are the best witnesses to bring that case we have to look at the entire universe of potential witness it is it on the table because senator Sherrod brown just said that he assumes that would be someone Democrats want to hear from you all of the relevant witnesses are on the table you know what we have to do is make sure we have documents to you this can't be the first a trial in American history the first impeachment trial in American history where we don't have documents and witnesses produced by the president could you use documents from love are not without hearing testimony from one part of that is a possibility I mean that we yeah but we have to do is we have to assess all the time both documents and witnesses and in many instances like any trial documents are a great way to assess credibility but if you include documents and not the testimony then people will say it's because you don't think that the witnesses credible well all of this is based on the Senate allowing witnesses you know we can talk about hypotheticals all day long about which witnesses to call when the call on whether or not to have witnesses or documents or documents the crop right those witnesses all of those type of kind of but all of this goes back to the Senate allowing witnesses in this in a long documents that is the Senate's decision because the jurors in this case the senators are both the Trier of fact but they also established the rules so it's time for them to establish fair rules do you think the president trump committed bribery yeah I think that the president did a lot of things that I've used his power of bribery yeah it is difficult yeah it is specifically you know he did attempt to bribe and of course a foreign government official in the why is why isn't that an article you know we have to look look at the entire context of what happened here yeah that's what this is about this is about the abuse of power it's about jeopardizing our national security our troops it's about undermining our free and fair elections you know the broad context of the pattern of this president is what's really important and that's why we proceeded with impeachment you could have had bribery is an article and then abuse of power is an article for instance Alan Dershowitz is going to argue on the Senate floor as he basically just stated that I mean you bribery is in the constitution when it comes to impeachment he will argue or will certainly feel that you Democrats would have had a much better case to actually see bribery if he thought it was bribery you all said bribery there's been talking points where Democrats are saying this is bribery and yet it wasn't an article of impeachment was that a mistake considering what Alan Dershowitz is going to argue no absolutely not you know let's let's broaden back out here and talk about what's really going on here that the president's team is trying to say you know that the president can't be indicted because it's DOJ policy that is standing president are sitting president can't be indicted at the same time there also making arguments that the house of representatives in Congress cannot subpoena documents to witnesses and we can't bring an impeachment case that you know it has to be a crime it that high crimes and misdemeanors do not do not include abuse of power and abuse of the public trust so if all of the president's arguments are true that a president can't be indicted that is the abuse of power and abuse of public trust doesn't constitute impeachable offense if that is true then no president can be held accountable that the president truly is above the law so those arguments can't possibly be true they can't stand because in our entire system of checks and balances wouldn't hold congressman decent growth thank you so much for joining us this right have a good

U.S. House to send Trump impeachment articles to Senate

"Let's get to impeachment we finally have some updates Fauria and I didn't leave the show with this today well number one because I want to make fun of the Democrats during the debate last night and all the craziness that went on there and then we had local issues because the legislative session is officially under way there a lot of issues that are being debated in Tallahassee that will actually impact your lives here in the state of Florida so we wanted to get some of those and of course during the course of the Senate trial we're gonna spend plenty of time on all of this but I do want to update you on where things stand today speaker Pelosi signed a house resolution to transmit the two articles of impeachment against president trump over to the Senate that followed the house approving resolution today appointing house managers for the impeachment trial representative Collin Peterson Democrat from Minnesota was the only Democrat to vote against the resolution the vote triggered the start of the Senate trial which has been delayed for nearly a month after the house approved two articles of impeachment against president trump one for abuse of power in the other for obstruction of Congress polo C. named seven house managers house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler representative Val Deming's from here in Florida Democrat from the Orlando area representative came Jeffries representative Zoe Lofgren representative Jason crow and representative Sylvia Garcia I know hello see couldn't do this she had to include chef and Nadler among the house managers but it would have been much better if she didn't because they're just viewed in such a partisan light and you've got talented people bound Deming's she's gonna be good she's the former police chief of Orlando and she uses out during the hearing as well she did so you've got talented people that you could have handled this you don't need shift or Nadler because nobody's really gonna pay much attention to what they say there's just a view bait in about those two I can see where the mines take a step back from being doing the actual trial and maybe there is yeah behind the scenes manager that's how it should be I don't know you think shift is gonna take a step back from the cameras are now learn mom the with all the incoming that chef and never took from the president maybe plus he said like and I'll let you go over there behind a smart move I don't know if that's what's going to happen but still Lofgren she's been this is our third impeachment trial yeah you were mentioning this earlier she was a staffer during the Nixon Nixon and the run up to the Nixon impeachment was actually in peace okay and then she was in Congress on the house side when Clinton was impeached now she's one of the truck the the managers of the impeachment I'm sorry if you've been around for three if you were a staffer during Nixon you really still need to be in Washington DC well I think it goes to the depth chart the dancing clothes he was well yeah yes yes yes I'm looking at a trial of it you know fantasies over here yeah that's how I'm viewing rice really she was there for Nixon to still there but now that that makes total sense to have somebody like that we I kinda knowledge and experience on your house manager staff list in terms of what's next there's gonna be a few days a housekeeping and procedural work Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to hold the substantive part of the trial opening arguments in the queue in a period it's gonna hold that until Tuesday in order to give house managers and trump's defense team a couple of days to prepare on Tuesday the Senate is expected to vote on an organizing resolution the will lay out the terms for the trial it seems like they're going to model it very closely to what happened in the Clinton impeachment they always need a live witness issue yes which if they get the for Republicans across over right right then we'll see what happens then and also the the new reporting today is and how will the Democrats agree to a **** for tat as far as witnesses of they get right hold on yeah well they allow hunter Biden especially if they think under by it has nothing to hide you know we'll see how that plays out and let me get to that aspect several key Senate Republicans are insisting there be specific language in shoring of votes on whether to call witnesses and request documents not that witnesses and documents are allowed but just that there's a vote right on it aides to some vulnerable senators and moderate states including senator Susan Collins have said this language is crucial we know Susan Collins probably once witnesses and it sounds like Mitt Romney once that as well I've heard Lamar Alexander Makowski is always one to watch the numbers are close a democratic leadership aide told Axios that they will force votes on subpoenaing key witnesses such as trump's former national security adviser John Bolton acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney Mulvaney senior adviser Robert Blair and top White House budget official Michael Duffy as well as relevant documents at the very least that will for some vulnerable Senate Republicans to cast tough votes lot of politics being played on both sides as to be expected some important numbers to remember Republicans would need fifty one votes to dismiss the case out right that's not gonna happen there's no way you're gonna have vulnerable Republicans like a Susan Collins vote to dismiss the case will not happen Democrats would need fifty one votes to call witnesses that's possible Republicans currently hold a fifty three forty seven majority in the Senate so Democrats would need for Republicans come over to their side to make the numbers work I think they think they have the votes I think they probably have the votes to at the very least John Paul at the very least I think you're gonna want to he he you're gonna have some Republicans are gonna want to hear from the former national security adviser one important note about today's resolution it gives managers authority to submit additional evidence that the Senate that's key because last night impeachment investigators at the house Judiciary Committee new evidence obtained from left partis Giuliani associate indicted by the Southern District of New York harness is gonna appear with Rachel Maddow Alan M. S. N. B. C. in a little bit and he basically says everything he did some of which was not good he did at the direction of the president Rudy Giuliani that's what he's gonna say tonight's in there there's a lot to one pack based on some of what we've learned about partners over the past couple of days so they're certainly going to be a back and forth and debate over what needs to be explored during the course of the Senate trial on the controversial decision by pelo C. to hold the impeachment articles for three weeks this is what she said on ABC's this week this past Sunday she said the tactic has produced a very positive results she said quote we feel that is produced a very positive result in terms of additional emails an unredacted information that's come forward Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed by the Senate I don't think the delay matters all that much in the big scheme of things you had much McConnell who held his ground he was not gonna be bullied by Nancy Pelosi should just didn't have the leverage some new information did come out including reselling the past couple of days although look this stuff it's not going to change the outcome of the trial the only thing that can really make this difficult for Republicans would be of John Bolton testified and have really really damaging information it also have John Bolton testify and he puts forth information favorable to the president and then it's a no brainer we don't know how that's going to go I think Bolton's announcement that he was willing to testify was the most important development that took place during the three weeks the pelo C. held the articles of impeachment what I go back to is the house were rushing through the impeachment process that was a mistake because now they have to push the Senate to do what they should have done I thought they went too fast if this was such a serious matter then you take your time and you do a thorough complete process instead they rushed through the articles of impeachment and then they kind of had to wait to see if more information will come out and then they learn one of the people they should of try to issue a subpoena for John Bolton he was maybe interested now in talking to the Senate it's it's just a mess and plus on top of this all it puts Senate Democrats running for president Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders in closure but some of the top spot she delayed this whole thing policy for three weeks and now at a crucial time for them right before the Iowa caucuses they're gonna be caught up in the Senate trial that's really at the end of the day that's where the biggest impact is the biggest impact is on the democratic primary and how it's gonna fact Iowa if I were those Senate Democrats I would not be thrilled with Nancy Pelosi at the moment your thoughts on the whole I hate you up to this point I have to disagree one thing is this notion that the investigation
