Pence to focus on US Iran policy in speech

"The increasingly intriguing question of what did the vice president know. And when did he we know it. Yes the vice president. In the midst of this very high stakes increasingly scary escalation between N- The US government and the nation of Iran were millions of people filled the streets today for the funeral of Qassem Soleimani was essentially seen as the second ranking official in that country. Second most powerful position in that country at least Soleimani was killed in the US air strike last week today. The trump administration announced. What's that they will soon have a public explanation for? What exactly they're doing? And what exactly they're thinking when it comes to Iran but the whole idea. is in terms of explaining their actions and their strategy toward Iran in the wake of this targeted killing now. This explanation from the trump administration as to what their strategy is for Iran. This explanation from the administration is not gonNA come for another week or so and it will not be president trump who gives the country this explanation the critical matter of the utmost and deadliest urgency. They'RE GONNA put off this explanation about what's going on between the US and Iran until next week and it's going to be vice president Mike Pence who gives the speech that is supposed to lay out. US policy toward Iran. And what exactly is going on. And what the strategic not gic thinking was behind this killing of this incredibly revered figure inside Iran why they think the country should wait a a week to get that explanation why it should be vice president. Mike Pence who gives that explanation to US rather than the president himself that remains to be seen. But if the the idea is that there might be less impeachment baggage trailing around after Vice President Mike Pence than there is after president trump and therefore maybe vice president pence might have of a sort of cleaner shot at this issue in the public's mind well maybe that's not true. The question of Vice President Mike Pence is Owned implication in the impeachment scandal is both unresolved and that was sort of back on the front burner. It has been nineteen days since the House voted to impeach president trump for trying to get Ukraine to help him out against Joe Biden for the two thousand twenty election. He wanted announcement from Ukraine that they had Biden under investigation. Impeachment inquiry also found that president trump pressured Ukraine to do that to make that announcement about those investigations by making contingent tinge on the announcement of those investigations. A whole bunch of things that Ukraine wanted including a White House visit for their new president. The impeachment inquiry also found that president trump held up military aid to Ukraine for months while he pressured them to do this domestic political favor for him. I honestly can't believe it's only been one thousand nine days Since the house impeach trump doesn't feel like it's been nineteen months it's been nineteen days and in that brief period in the less than three weeks weeks it has been since he got impeached. We've continued to get new evidence and new information about the scheme for which the president was impeached including a reported communication from the Office of Management and Budget in the White House to a Pentagon official in which the White House official assured. Dod It was president trump personally who was insisting on holding up Ukraine's military aid and a communication reported by Cape Brennan Adjust Security. That ownby official tells tells the Defense Department quote Clear Direction from Portis inning president of the United States to hold the Ukraine aid since the the House vote to impeach president trump. We've also seen new evidence in new documentation of this intense conflict and intense concern within the administration shen that president trump ordering a hold on that military aid to Ukraine was in fact illegal. So here for example is that same defense official who just assured by the the White House that the money was being withheld on direct orders from the president. Here's that same defense official writing thereafter to the office of the Secretary of Defense to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff she says quote do you believe dod is adequately protected from what may happen as the result of the Ukraine obligation. Pause as in. We all know this is illegal. Are we prepared for what's going to happen to us at the Defense Department here if we do this illegal thing that has been directly ordered by the president. So here's what's fascinating in response to that email which was sent from somebody in the Pentagon controller's office to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff are we adequately protected from what may happen as as a result of this right in response to that email to the defense secretary's chief of staff the Defense Secretary's Chief of staff writes back and he says this quote Ukrainian. PM speaks with the vice. President of the United States. Veep Otis on Tuesday. We expect the issue to get resolved that. Why do you expect the issue to be resolved that in fact the Tuesday following that email September first vice president and Mike Pence did meet with the leader of Ukraine? They met in Europe. They met in Warsaw. That's where we got this incredible footage of that room and who was there were you can see all of these people in that room whose careers have blown up and whose lives have changed a lot as a result the result of this scandal. You can see them all in the same shot. I mean in that meeting on the American side of the room. There's Energy Secretary Rick. Perry who of course suddenly submitted his resignation right right as the scandal broke open right next to him is national security adviser John Bolton who also suddenly submitted his resignation right as the scandal broke open right right next to the same row. There's ambassador Gordon Sunland. Who became a star witness in the impeachment inquiry testifying under oath that? Oh yes there was a quid pro quo and it was ordered by President trump. Just behind him in the second row there's Jennifer Williams who was the top Ukraine adviser to Vice President Pence who also became a star impeachment inquiry witness also in that same row. Tim Morrison the top Russia expert on the National Security Council who then himself suddenly announced his resignation on the eve of him also becoming an impeachment inquiry witness and next to him back there in the corner national security official named Earl Matthews who also so work on Ukraine issues who also suddenly left his post as this scandal broke open. I mean who's left within a few weeks of this meeting. In some cases within a few days of this meeting like everybody in that room had their life changed and or their career ended and and now we know from these internal administration documents and communications. That have been revealed in the one thousand nine days since the impeachment vote. We now know that after weeks. Six of freak out inside the administration over president trump holding up this military aid after president trump asking questions about that military aid after him directing the holdup up of the aid after him being advised by everybody in the national security apparatus that he himself appointed that he had to let go with hold on the military aid but he still refused to do so after all of the explicit arguments. We know that happened within the administration that to hold up that aid much longer would constitute a criminal act. We now know. I know that after all those weeks and months of consternation and conflict and concern and CYA inside the administration. We know right before vice president pence went and took this meeting at the highest levels of the Defense Department. The chief of staff to the Secretary of Defense was reassuring other officials inside the Pentagon. Oh don't worry. This is going to be over soon when Mike Pence takes that meeting was the Linski on Tuesday. It's all GonNa get sorted. Why do they think it was all going to get sorted? President trump was just impeached for demanding that Ukraine give him investigations into Joe Biden. That would help two minutes twenty twenty reelection effort and conveying to Ukraine. That they wouldn't get there. No much needed military aid until they made that commitment to do those investigations. So you won't get the military aid unless you agree to do those investigations announce publicly. You're doing those investigations are. You're never gonna see that military aid. We now know that in the defense secretaries office. They thought that that would all click into place as soon as this meeting between Mike Prints and the Ukrainian president took place so it was Mike Pence who was supposed to personally get the assurance from the Ukrainian government at that meeting that they were going to announce the investigations. Because that was the deal right. That's what everybody was waiting. They can't get the military aid until they announced the investigations. Don't worry they'll be able to get the military aid as soon as Mike Pence has that meeting. And that's what they were waiting on right at least according to the chief of staff to the Secretary of defense man man. Whose name is Eric Tuning? He put it in writing. Don't worry this will. All End. Wants Mike Pence takes that meeting. So says Eric Tuning Defense Secretaries Chief of Staff Eric. Tuning the defense secretary staff has just suddenly resigned his job his resignation announced today on the same day that former national security adviser John Bolton again is right there in the room for that meeting and again resigned suddenly without much explanation right right in the middle of the scandal right. As the Ukraine aid was finally being released and the whistleblower complaint was finally being processed and heading toward Congress John Bolton today released a statement saying if he is subpoenaed in the impeachment trial of president trump. He will appear and testify all the Senate is now back in accession. We don't yet know how the Senate is going to proceed with the impeachment trial for President Trump but obviously John Bolton's declaration that he will testify if summoned. He will will testify at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate if they send him a subpoena obviously raises the stakes on the Republican efforts in the Senate to try to a whole the impeachment trial without hearing from any witnesses

Does the whistleblower have the right to remain confidential?

"The former assistant United States Attorney in the writer for the National Review and the fox news specialist discussed with the blower while on Chicago's morning answer with van prop and Amy Jacobson again on Adam Schiff refusal to release transcripts of the behind closed doors customer we can still have this sort of running a look a complaint against ship which is released these transcripts a turn these transcripts around so that they can be included in the discussion and real time not to we're going to release his friend we're going to have this testimony that we're gonna decide if this is somebody that's helpful to the case it's a call then I'll decide if the transcript will be released released a transcript it doesn't take long to type this thing up yeah they were absolutely right about that they should have the transcripts available to them when they are examining the other witnesses because the information now you know the way the way this would work if the federal rules of evidence apply which they don't in a hearing like this would be that you can't impeach a witness with another witness's statement but you can use the information that you get from other witnesses as a good faith basis to challenge the testimony of other witnesses the problem that the Democrats have had from the beginning here and I think the problem but the public will have with the the process here is that it's not fair ship has taken to himself the ability to pick and choose what information gets put out the ability to pick and choose what witnesses are allowed to testify nobody thinks he is an honest broker he's a he's a political partisan hardball operatives and if I were the Republicans I would suggest that they have to play the hand they're dealt and they you know he can block them from calling witnesses I would make him the focus of the hearing because he is the focus of a hearing sitting there in the middle he's the most imposing consistent figure in this whole process so why would keep bringing it back to him that he's been utterly unfair and that he's running essentially a kangaroo proceed yeah I mean you Jennifer Williams spent staffer she was you know depose on Saturday I would like to have her testimony be public but what about the whistle blower do you think he should be on mass than we should have a public you know hearing for him yes okay first of all and it it should be done before Ben and testifies the game that the Democrats applying is they apparently you need to see this and then then the transcript of the closed door testimony when they start to ask about the whistle blower and whether he lied stuff to the what's the blower and whether he's in cahoots with the whistle blower ship jump sand and cuts it off on the on the ground that they're trying to reveal the whistle blower he's got a legal right to remain confidential he does not have a legal right to remain confidential first of all the whistleblower statute that they're talking about does not apply to this guy because this is we're not talking about intelligence activities this is the president dealing in foreign policy with a head of state so the statue doesn't even apply to a but even if it did it only imposes a confidentiality requirements on the inspector general of the intelligence committee or community and even with respect to the inspector general confidentiality can be pierced if he thinks under the circumstances it's unavoidable that the guy will become public or and this is very important if the matter if there was any way the matter was likely to be referred to a a court for trial or to the justice department for potential prosecution what that underscores is people's desire to be confidential it's something that we defer to only so far and no further once you're in a position where your information is relevant to an important proceeding like the judicial trial or I would argue like an impeachment proceeding you will lose your interest in being confidential has to take a backseat to the public's interest and the proceedings interest in getting at the truth

"Not aware of this This in fact until recently I I guess I didn't independently look into it. I'm just not aware of now. What kind of payments Mr Mayor received this is not something? I'm aware of the American legal. Representatives met with Ukrainian officials just days after after Vice President Biden force the firing of the country's chief prosecutor. I'm not aware of these meetings. Is You know that breese lawyers pressured the State Department in February two thousand sixteen after the rate and a month before the firing of Shokhin that they invoked Hunter Biden's name as a reason to intervene. I'm not aware of any of these facts. You know that. Joe Biden called Ukrainian president for ching-kuo at least three times in February two thousand sixteen after after the President and owner Bruce from his home raided on February second by the state prosecutor's office. I'm aware of the fact that President Biden our Vice President Biden. It was a very engaged on Ukraine. Had numerous engagements. There you go so that was basically Nunez's job More like Munez. Am I right. Yeah there you go. I couldn't figure that out I wanted to try and make it a verb but in some way But there it is Nunez. Does his job. He gets into the record. The sort of the Fox narrative that will be the clip that they play for the most part The idea being that There's this whole other. I guess corruption thing that it's all about Biden and one hundred. It's Kinda like the old Have you heard of piven and I know it's like well. You're not a journalist a little bit of this. Like how could you call yourself a Ukrainian expert when you're not aware of how much money Hunter Biden made as a board director of this company. Budding how could you say that you're involved in Ukrainian policy foreign policy when you're not aware of this so that is That is basically what we're looking at As far as the today's podcast that'll be that and this is what we'll do. We're going to Just make a transition into the fund. Half but the fun half. We're going to pick up a little bit more of what's going on on the hearings and then we'll do a couple other stories and We'll probably start back up for some of the Volcker testimony. We will go through just to give you a sense of what's going to happen today. We're going to go through the Volcker testimony and Who else is coming up today? I've forgotten again. It's Volker Morrison. We'll go through the first Two councils questioning so it'd be about another hour and a half later. African starting about two thirty so so for now. This will be our free podcasts for the day and it gives me an opportunity to remind you you you can support this show by going to join the majority report dot com become a member. You get the Free Show you get it without commercials and then you also get the extra content at that. We put out every day. Obviously stuff like this coverage. We're going to probably put out as well. I think this is important Time in the country fourth time that in our history that we've had impeachment hearings. I think obviously from civics standpoint. It's very important. It's important to hold these people accountable. All I would prefer the Democrats do it in a much broader array of things though I do understand the idea of like you get capone on the tax Cheating because that's what you can get him on. Donald trump is unlikely to be removed from office. But this has definitive. Impact in my estimation. You're on potential material benefits for the citizens of the United States. If we elect a Democratic president would be my hope that the president would be Bernie Sanders the chances of Bernie Sanders. There's being able to push his agenda through our if not Directly certainly indirectly actually Implicated by these hearings. The difference between having a Democratic Senate even with three or four senators who are suppo- start off by you know not wanting to pursue five or six Democratic senators. I don't want to pursue a Bernie. Sanders policy is vastly different than one that is dominated by Republicans. These hearings are going to make it very difficult for a half dozen doesn't centers I keep saying this over and over again but it's really important. I think for people to internalize this. Because you know there are a lot of people who sort of Pooh Pooh this. Some like I saw a call from Jimmy or the other day who says there was no quid pro quo and how could there be anything if If they released the I mean basically everything that Sean Hannity says then there's other people that just don't think it's interesting because it's process oriented in some way it's a legalistic process with with no real like obvious grassroots connection. You know it's a legalistic process. But I'm making clear in my estimation what I think. The grassroots connection gene is and that is that it's going to change the ability of any president who is a democrat. Who wants to try and do something? That somewhat progressive it's going to change directly their ability to do so that's simply a fact presuming the revolution. It does not happen between now and a year from now and we still have the same system of government any person who is the president United States. Who wants to get any any type of policy through that is even remotely remotely close to what we would all I want in? This office is going to need a democratically controlled Senate. It's not a guarantee it's not necessarily sufficient but it's necessary. I mean it just obviously mansion is a much more desirable obstacle than McConnell's of course donal is an insurmountable some scenarios. Yes in some scenarios. I don't think there's going to be a huge difference but I guess then the benefit would then become a Bernie can point at these Democrats and the left can point at these Democrats say Democrats are trashed two. Oh and they won't have the Republicans to hide behind anymore. That's one benefit the other benefit is you just stated it. When you said? In some instances it's true in some instances. It's not the the net is. It is the case that it's going to be much better. There's just like no scenario where it's better to have Mitch. McConnell being the Senate majority leader than even as much as I dislike Chuck Schumer then Chuck Schumer. There's no scenario where it's better and I if you have Bernie Sanders as the president and so you know I think like I keep hammering it over and over again in some ways I think because of the response that you had in the cynicism resum and the idea that this is completely unrelated to actually getting material benefits for the United States for for citizens it's not it is in fact a hugely important and part of this from a political standpoint. I think you know if you want to argue like I don't care about civics or holding them to account or the process involved in here or that You you know the legalistic fine. But if you're thing is getting material benefits for the people of the United States the fact of the matters has big. This has huge implications for. Oh Yeah I definitely care about the outcome. I'm not totally convinced that it's going to have have outcome that you say but I'm kind of optimistic again may not be sufficient but it certainly is necessary and so That's the best that we can hope. For in these instances so again if you want to support the program join join the majority report DOT COM sign up for the quickey and listen a good way to watch it..

"The Oval Office meeting that they so desperately wanted was conditioned on these specific investigations into Burri SMA and the two thousand sixteen election. That was the first time I was aware of the Ukrainian superbeing approached directly by a government official and directly linking the White House meeting to the investigations correct. Okay there you go. And so that's basically. When the the two streams cross where the regulars and the irregulars become or the irregulars agenda is exposed to the regulars and whether her volcker was there is relevant? He is expected to testify this afternoon. That he didn't know basically he just he didn't know that the aid was testified was was was connected. It's unclear whether he's going to testify that He knew that it was tied to the meeting but he is going to at and apparently This is a modification of his testimony. So we'll see we shall see what happens with Volker And look because we want to be fair here is Devin Nunez basically. It's an interesting technique. Jake I mean and it is. This is the clip that they're gonNA play on Fox News. We might as well preview it for you here. I might as well I could have been the witness that he asked his questions of anybody in this room. Anybody listening to this because the agenda that he had here was not in in any way to get to the bottom of any of the accusations he wanted. He wants to put the accusations out there and of course he's asking someone who doesn't know anything about them mm-hmm so that they can't be refuted in any way here is Devin. Nunes says I'm I'm trying to work in The cow reference. But here's Devin nunes asking Jennifer Williams and I think he turns development at one point. Do you know anything about blank. And Blank is a conspiracy theory that we're going to use them Fox to divert attention attention from what's going on The tenth Colonel Denman. I'M GONNA ask you of same questions.

"Political opponent consistent with official. US policy it was not consistent with the policies. I understood it now. Are you aware of any credible allegations or evidence to support this notion. That Vice President Biden did something wrong or against. US policy with regard to Ukraine. I'm not there you go now. There is I mean that's basically the the nub of the question of what was Donald Trump doing out and say it was. US policy that was developed but the problem is is that it also was like. It was newly introduced at one point between between April and July and it's also clearly cannot be a legitimate. US policy that the US government via tax payer dollars provides assistance or support or anything for that matter. Even if it's just a meeting with the president in return for the president getting getting stuff that will personally enrich him in some way and the fact of the matter is is that an investigation into Hunter Biden. Where there's been no allegations as to? I mean I've never even heard of the right wing narrative that Joe Biden. Did anything think it's just that Hunter Biden was there that you can Surmise that that is anything other than personal enrichment Eh thing that Donald Trump wants to call it a quid pro quo. It's I give you this. You give me that. which is the solicitation of a bribe? Now in this instance. I happen to think it's extortion. Because it is like I have basically stolen your money. That is due. Because it's been appropriated duly by Congress and. I'm not going to give it to you until you give me what I want. which again is sort? Sort of like a bribe and The the Republicans make a big deal of this. During the hearing you can't say quid. Pro Quo and then explain Lena's bribe or explain it as extortion because of the Because of course of the constitution which says that you're not allowed to describe grab a bribe as quid pro quo or as extortion. Which of course the Constitution does not say Mr Retreat to pedantry exactly now? Here is a clip so at one point like I said earlier the Goldman establishes that this is not a US policy and it's also been established that Vin men had two occasions to report the president's behavior to his inspector general. One was the meeting where a Bolton basically said had we not getting involved in that drug deal the other one was that moment where Soon as the call ended Then very quickly said I reported it because I knew it was inappropriate immediately. Here is Goldman laying out the april-to-may timeline. This is early on and it's interesting because this is also the period of time where trump goes from. We're going to Send Pants to the inauguration to wait a second. He's not GonNa go to the inauguration even though they didn't know when's Alinsky inauguration was so it wasn't a scheduling problem. It was just a a mood. Thank you just change. I just don't like it. I want to ask you if you were aware of the following things that happened from April twenty I.

"Signed by the President and coordinate by the NFC correct We help but his Williams do you have any information that any person who has testified as part of this impeachment inquiry either in secret or in public has either perjured themselves or lied to this committee I have not read the other testimonies. And do you have any evidence. Though that they perjure themselves lied because I have not read them the technical vitamin do. You have any evidence that anyone who who's testified before this committee in the impeachment inquiry has perjured themselves or lied to this committee. Not that I'm aware of. Are you back okay now Carson all right Alexa chairmanship. Let's bring this down. We can have it. Maybe in the background put it down in the switch. The the boxes that would be good. So Folks here's what we're doing if you're just joining us. We have been alive covering the impeachment pitchman hearing since nine. Am this morning The two people testifying as of this morning. Lieutenant Colonel Alex Veneman. He is As you just heard With the NFC. He is a sub sub. I Guess Cabinet member Policy position where he coordinates Ukrainian policy. We will hear from what we can do. Is We're GONNA play basically some snippets. You will get the The hearing wrapped up in In in about thirty minutes. I think it'll take us and This is And and that's we're GONNA go through for those people who've been following They may want to switch over to C. Span to see the rest of the the hearings but the gist of it. And we've we've heard heard from the two lawyers we've heard from some of the members. Apparently it looks like the Republicans demoted Stefanik But maybe we will come back if she gets to speak again. But we'll play you. Some of the highlights basically what the Republicans were trying to do is say this guy was out out of the loop. He was irrelevant that sort of implying that the president can change policy if he wants to which of course he can but then the question is what policy did the change it to and diddy authority to hold up funding. That was already appropriated by Congress that those those are the big questions and so let's start just with vitamins opening statement. I gotTA Say I. Ah I found this somewhat Moving in some respects. I mean. I'm not you know I typically moved by these things. Maybe it just I said earlier that I am aware of of of people who came to this country from the Soviet Union. Probably around the time that he did there was different waves of of when you had people come to this country and You can see this is a guy who is there. He's been subpoenaed. It doesn't seem to be terribly psyched about about it And but he's there and he's giving his testimony. This is a vindication. Basically speaking directly to his father who apparently the family has had to sort of go into hiding a little bit because of threats he has told us at this point. I think his two other brothers are also in the. US military one appears to be there today who is also a member of the NFC and here is basically his message to his dad because His Dad's probably watching the hearing but again has had to go underground a little bit dad. I'm sitting here today. In the. US Capitol talking to our elected professionals. Talking to our elected professionals is proof that you made the right decision forty years ago to leave the Soviet Union come here to the United United States of America in search of a better life for our family. Do not worry I will be fine. For telling the truth. They go he It was pretty moving open open statement and he clearly was nervous. Everson uncomfortable throughout the whole thing Here is Jennifer Williams. She is is this is i. Think a part of her opening statement as well. If I'm not mistaken making clear what her role was and She doesn't go her feelings about what happened. They didn't really travel very far. Her direct superior was also on on the call and her direct periodically. I think works for pence as well and she didn't feel it necessary as far ars I know to report to anyone else that she founded inappropriate at one point though it becomes clear that she did and here. It is on a trash of security assistance designated for Ukraine. According to the information I received was is reviewing whether the funding was aligned with the administration's priorities. I subsequently attended meetings of the Policy Coordination Committee. Where the hold on Ukrainian security assistance was discussed during those meetings? Representatives of the state and defence departments advocated that the whole should be lifted an NBA representatives. resentatives reported that the White House Chief of staff had directed that the whole should remain in place on September. Eleventh I learned that the hold unsecurity assistance for Ukraine had been released. I have never learned what prompted that decision on July twenty fifth. Along with several of my colleagues I listened to a call between president trump and presidents Linski the content of which has since been publicly reported prior to July twenty fifth. I had participated in roughly. It doesn't other presidential phone calls during my closed-door deposition members of committee asked about my personal views and whether I had any concerns about July twenty fifth breath call as I testified then I found the July twenty fifth phone call unusual because in contrast to other presidential calls I had observed it involved discussion discussion of what appeared to be a domestic political matter after the July twenty fifth call. I provided an update in the vice president's Daily briefing book indicating reading that President Trump had a call that day with presidents. Linski a hard copy of the memorandum transcribing. The call was also included in the book. I do not know whether the vice president reviewed my update or the transcript. I did not discuss the July twenty fifth call with Vice President or any of my colleagues in the office of the vice president or the. Let's see on August twenty ninth. I learned that the vice president would be traveling to Poland to meet with presidents Alinsky on September first at the September. I meeting which I attended presidents Alinsky. Ask the vice president about news articles reporting a hold on. US Security Assistance for Ukraine. The vice president isn't it responded that Ukraine had the United States unwavering support and promised to related conversation to President Trump at night during the September. First meeting neither the vice president nor presidents Alinsky mentioned the specific investigations discussed during the July twenty fifth phone. Call thank you again for the opportunity to provide the state. We don't need to hear anything past that okay now. There's a couple of things that you should know here that becomes relevant once when she said that the You know obviously the the funding gets released September eleventh. We will go We we will. We will cover in a minute Testimony that shows that that was a couple of days after the the investigation into why it was being held up was done. But we're going to jump to to questioning that schiff had of Williams clip number nine to. I guess it is or wait. There's three okay all right. Well one is a question about Giuliani and then the other so shift then asks Williams about that pence Dolinsky meeting at one of the things that we find out in the course of of of this. Is that pences trip to talk to Dolinsky was cancelled. The inaugurate the inaugural trip was is put on hold before they knew one. The date of the inauguration is and the reason why that was important is because for whatever reason and trump said pence is not going to the inauguration and that happens. If there's there's some type of conflict both the president and the vice president are not supposed to be out of the country at the same time vice president was not what made aware at least Williams was not made aware as to why the trip was cancelled before they even knew when the day was which made it a rather suspicious cancellation. It wasn't being canceled for any scheduling purposes. It was being cancelled for some unknown reason at least at that time. So let's go to That that clip number nine at eleven thirty eight and this is when Schiff is asking Williams about pence ends. Alinsky is meeting that. She just commented on that she attended on September. First where there was no mention whatsoever about a quid pro quo or bribery or extortion. Whatever you WANNA call it and but subsequent to that meeting moments later there was another meeting and this is what is important to know about that meeting? This is eleven thirty but were not correct so when people suggest well maybe Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani was acting on his own and maybe he was a freelancer or whatever. The president referred to exactly the same two investigations rudy. Giuliani was out pushing on his behalf. Is that correct. That is correct. Okay here it is with.
