"But the country was not doing well. 60% of Americans did not even have 400 bucks in their bank accounts before Cove it hit So this is where he came, and I think for us is Democrats. We have to remember two things going into the next election. Number one that a bass is critically important. I saw the pulling. You and I are pulling for nobody to be president of the United States. I saw the pulling on this. It looks like Joe's got finds got a big lead on on Donald Trump. But I would say the extremely careful Because when they take out likely voters and they factor in for enthusiasm that lead drop substantially, so don't think that we don't need our base with us. We need young people. We need folks of color in all places. Because Michigan we need everybody to turn out turn out matters in these places. Andi Secondly, you know, I think that when Biden is elected president, we have to be bold. We have to recognize that austerity spending hurts us. If we don't invest in people and education in housing and opportunity and transportation that we will ultimately worsened these inequalities. And there will be an opportunity for another Donald Trump to come and with so we're gonna have to be bold. We're gonna have to step up and we're gonna have to invest in our communities and then hopefully we keep the White House in 2024. Pramila Jaipal use the power. You have a brown woman's guide to politics and political change. She's in conversation with her house colleague Jim Himes. Yeah, I I agree fervently that there is a great deal more commonality on agreement across the political spectrum. Particularly on economic issues. You know, you and I would have probably slight disagreements on economic policy because we come from different tribes within the Democratic Party. But there's no doubt that you know those things are consistent in universal availability of healthcare, a reasonable shot in an education. I don't care where you come from or what your socioeconomic circumstances are. If you could be persuasive around, providing that you're going to appeal to everyone there, I would drive a station here, and there's a really interesting part in your book that I want to highlight here. I think it's a little harder in the realm of social issues, and I see the Republicans because they recognized that we win. If we have an honest economic debate, we went at it all day long. If you look at their tax plan, it's you know, delivered 83% of its savings to the top 5% Look at their policies. They realized that we were The economic if that's the debate, but instead they try to paint the Democrats as coastal elitists that are obsessed with Gender neutral pronouns and, you know, they use a lot of dark language about people who are differently, who worship differently. Who, you know who love differently on DH. I think that's a little harder conversation and I I see that in my own district sometimes why? Because we've made incredible progress in this country and services, the lights going off in my office, but admitting we've made head spinning progress, acknowledging that we have a long way to go in this country, you know, 10 years ago or 11 years. So the five member Connecticut delegation, I don't think anybody was for marriage equality. You know, Barack Obama was famously kind of outed for marriage equality by Joe Biden vice president So we've seen dramatic change and some of the changes. I think scary to people who come from or conservative areas than you and I live in. And there's this wonderful page in your book here where you thought you have you have a non binary child who wishes to be referred to as day there, you know, And, of course, the right way. And then Republicans make all sorts of, you know, condescending comments about pronounced this sort of thing on then there's this thing Where you You say I should use pregnant people instead of women throughout the piece that you're writing to give acknowledgment that transit, non binary people who might not identify with term women could still be pregnant. That shows a great deal of care. For people who have traditionally been at best marginalized at work's targeted, But I think you would agree that that I read that page. And I thought, Man, this is this is like a step or two beyond where, like I've gone because I hadn't done a lot of thinking about non by finery and that look I represent Southwest Know you want most liberal places on the planet. Socially speaking. So my question at the end of that long speeches. How do we make sure that we are Bringing people in and saying essential ourselves. Perhaps you may not be quite as far along the journey as others, but we want to help you rather than being understanding or attacking. You were calling you bigoted this quite frankly, I think that's not just what the Republicans say about us. But when a presidential candidate close people Deplorables When we called somebody who was struggling with these issues whose big hit I think I think we bear some blame for how we talk about these things, too. So again. It's a remarkable page in your foot. But how do we get people in a graceful and constructive way on social issues? Well, you know, I have this phrase that I say, always approach life with generosity and abundance, not with scarcity and fear. And I think about that when I talk to people about Janek and about having a non binary child and their many of my friends who are confused about these pronounce my mother. My mother is in India and, you know she took a whole course when Jenna came out as non binary, and she still can't get the pronounce right And it's OK because she loves them. And and so I try to come at it from the love of a parent and to talk about how we want our kids to be free to express who they are. And when people have trouble with that, it doesn't necessarily turned me off of them. It doesn't make me judge them because I myself had to go through my own process of just I still sometimes referred to Jessica's he because for 20 years that's what Johnnic Wass, but You know what s so I think that sense of understanding and intention is really important. But I also think that everybody wants to be seen Jim. Everybody wants to be seen invisible for who they are, and those identities are so critical and fundamental to somebody being able to be seen. And so I think we should continue to be strong about it, but be loving and generous and Call people in. I try not to judge people. That's why I really had problems with Republicans who were talking about non binary people in the most dehumanizing of ways. It wasn't just saying, I don't understand this. Somebody explain it to me. They were talking about people into humanizing ways. And that is my child. That is unacceptable. So of course I had to speak out. But I also think the other thing is There are so many points of connection and we don't have to agree on everything in order to respect each other. There's you know, I I'm in a very democratic district. But I'm in a state that has a top two primary, which means that the top two vote getters go on to the general election. So most of the time I'm facing another Democrat in my elections. And when I was running for the state Senate, I decided I was running against another Democrat in the general and I decided that I should go talk to Republicans because they're 20% of my district and birthdays. They don't have a Republicans vote for, so why not me? And so I went to talk to them, and I have this story in there. I was a beautiful sunny day. I went out to these Republican household and you know they were identified on my walk. She does Republican And I go up to this 11 guy and he's out there cleaning his Farley's. He's a big, burly guy. He's got a bunch of tattoos all over his ours, and I have maybe some Syria types in my mind about how this conversation is going to go..

"Himes of Connecticut is as a member of the House Intelligence Committee I and let's get right into it without further ado. I want to start if we can buy. I sort of refining the subject at hand. We're here to talk about cybercrime enforcement. You guys are on the intelligence committees. which which is we? Don't think of normally as settings of criminal enforcement discussion so I wanNA kind of explore. The relationship between the intelligence committees committees and the subject today at hand Senator Warner get US started why is cybercrime related to the work. A product of the intelligence committees as such well. Then thank you for having us and for everyone at this presentation. The truth is one of the many reasons why Congress is so. Dysfunctional is that We don't have a committee structure that matches watches a twenty-first-century world so there is no cyber committee in the US Congress. It touches a variety of of subject matter to a variety of committees and at the same time we have no even technology committee in in the in the congress so in a sense by by default the intelligence committee which at least on the Senate side is in many ways become virtually the default technology -nology committee because we see all of the challenges from emerging technologies. We see those. In the context of both individuals and with state actors. Actors has been the one place where the only piece of cyber legislation of any substance the information sharing legislation of a few years. Back it came came out the voluntary information sharing legislation came out We continue to look at it probably more so from the nation state actors. I roll on cyber and I think you know if we were going to Redo the committee structure there might be technology slash cyber committee but the interim I think it will fall to us on Intel and because generally speaking at least on the Senate side we still function in a relatively. Bipartisan Way. That I think is a nerd to the benefit of of thinking through these issues in a perhaps less partisan fashion congressman. What are what are your thoughts on this? I you know I I look at it and say the issues that your committee has been both of. Your committees have been most publicly engaged with the Russian Russian electoral interference most prominently the modality or one of the major modalities of addressing that has been cybercrime enforcement right and so I'm curious whether that's the kind of core linkage or whether there's a a sort of more fundamental one well I certainly agree with what Mark said and maybe just a build out on that point a little bit. You can't conceive of a CYBERCRIME as anything other than global. An awful lot of the bad actors are either abroad Many of them will be either formally associated with a sovereign or informally associated with sovereign even flesh. That out what is is in. We indicted a bunch of Russian state actor hackers and a bunch of La State actor hackers four cybercrimes times when you say informally associated with a sovereign. What's that S- step level down from that that you're referring to and China's probably probably not the right model to illustrate the point I was trying to make China's very hierarchical very regimented in what they do? Which is why the FBI was able to identify units in rooms? Rooms and people and indict the Russians are what I'm thinking of more. I can't I can't get into the level of granularity around the other people who are active whether it's North Korea around but but the Russians I mean I think the Internet research agency is the best illustrative example. Apparently the guy who runs that is Putin's chef. I'm pretty sure that's not in the Russian constitution as a former sovereign mechanism. But you know the Russians obviously are very interested in chaos and they're very interested in deniable. Chaos chaos leads them in particular to employ. You know not just people in Russia but I suspect people throughout Europe with technical capability to achieve their ends it it gives them the ability to deny what they are in fact behind and I think let me. Just add to Jim's point here I think we've seen some level of evidence. The they may be spies by day working literally for the State Service or indirectly as in the case the IRA and criminals at night in terms of networking with other cyber characters. Not just in their particular nation listen our Russia but with networks of of cybercriminals around in collaborating on ransomware attacks collaborating denial of service attacks in a way that we believe probably simply supplements their daytime income with exponentially larger returns on their their part time night activities and of course that there are part time night activities are tolerated by the countries that they're in because they're day time activities are so beneficial to the intelligence and and interests of the country in question. Yeah tolerated encouraged right. I mean and again I I know less about North Korea than I do do about China and Russia which I think is probably true of most government officials in the sense out there is that North Korea actually requires its the government people to bring in revenue in one of the ways they can do that simply obviously is through through cybercrime all right. So you've described a kind of almost seamless web between the state action that either employees or kind of quasi employees the actors ars in question and the criminal activities through which they accomplish both the state action and their own private action. I'm I'm interested in both of your sense of what. The role of criminal enforcement is the proper proper role. The optimal role of criminal enforcement is in addressing this web. Is it a big part. The picture that is underused. Is it a small part of the picture that is being appropriately. Used given how hard it is to get custody the of people or is there some you know other set of state authorities that is going to be the dominant one that this. There's going to be a kind of in support of. How do you see it? As a as a as a part of the government's arsenal in responding take take a crack at that. I've been frustrated. I've been frustrated by a bunch of things in this realm. It is it is my opinion that that The Obama Administration of of which I was a supporter was underwhelming in their response to the Russian attacks. I think I think that response. Plus the current president's actions are sending the signal that Russia and associated entities and people can do what they like and I've also been frustrated by the fact that I think there's a general acknowledgement that the indictments the Chinese. PLA People and of the Russians will never come to trial there is value in naming and shaming. But you who also give up an awful lot when you come out as detailed as those indictments have in terms of your sources and methods so I'm very frustrated in this this world about what law enforcement internationally will do law enforcement can be very effective in places where they have jurisdiction. But I'm a bit. It's very frustrating to me. Because it right now. How absentee more comprehensive global understanding of how we're going to deal with this stuff naming and shaming is good but we also again give away away an awful lot of what we know and how we know it and I would echo what Jim said even maybe I'll take your frustration and double it it just just in the sense that I would argue that that post nine eleven even go back to Bush and Obama? We've not had a articulated suber doctrine so consequently we we been willing to use our tools against second tier states Iran North Korea near pure adversaries like Russia and China. Because we've not had a clearly articulated cyber doctrine we have been so afraid need of cyber escalation that I think we've been kind of open season and open hunting for other nation states and their agents. It's the kind of normal sense of if you have a major cyber attack. Denial Service attack and you shut down Moscow for twenty four hours. You've got a problem. You Shutdown New York for twenty four hours. You've got a crisis and consequently we have been unwilling to lay out in articulate will way what our country the strategy what are red lines are and and what our willingness to use our own tools on. Let me go ahead and make one. You know Point here which I normally make which they complement to the trump administration one of the things that the trump administration did do more recently in two thousand eighteen gene was they slightly decreased the amount of bureaucratic hoops. You have to go through if you cyber command were to use potentially offensive capabilities. I think net net that made sense. I think it coupling this lack of strategy articulated it'd strategy and doctrine around cyber comes also a lack of international norms and standards. If we're going to have an effective cyber regime gene we need to. I would argue not dissimilar to chemical or biological weapons we need rules of attribution. We need rules in terms of if you do X.. And even if the attribution is not to the ninety fifth percentile but we can show that it is originating from a a region or a country then there should potentially be consequences but our failure to have those kind of international standards combined with a lack of our articulated aided cyber strategy and cyber doctrine means that forms like this really important and we are behind the game and consequently whether it is nation state actors or or kind of increasingly not run of the mill but ever more common right. ransomware attacks We are you know behind the criminal activities and need to catch up okay but you know so in different ways. I think you've both sort of challenge. The premise of the conference here. So if we take as a As naming shaming indictments involving state actors or kind of give up a lot in terms of sources and methods in order in exchange for relatively little and that a fundamental component of. The problem is a lack of cyber doctrine in the non-criminal areas. It would follow that we may be over emphasizing criminal enforcement at this point as a way of dealing with this. So I'm I'm interested for both both of your senses was was the PLA indictment a mistake and for that matter was Robert. Muller's GRU are you indictment or and IRA indictment both of which gave up a lot in order to not get custody of people were the were. Are Those mistakes. I don't think they were mistakes. I think that the level particularly of intellectual property theft From China was so great at has once again returned to being so great That short of a full doctrine a- least doing the naming shaming was important necessary necessary but not sufficient and we need a more enforceable doctrine. I think hope while not directly the topic but China's ability to couple intellectual property theft with a very determined termined technology investment strategy combined that within national champions in areas like always becoming five G. and we have a security and economic challenge. Unlike anything we've ever faced in our lifetimes ought to be perhaps a subject of different conference but it is i. I think one of the issues of our day in in just starting to wrap our minds around that nicely that kind of China versus not United States and China is a great nation. Be Very clear but the Chinese communist party versus the West Writ Large in technology innovation. We've always set the rules standards and protocols that that was not the case in five G. increasingly may not be the case in AI quantum facial recognition and a lot of this is built upon at Lee some of the intellectual property that was that was stolen through cyber means and then supplemented by a very aggressive investment strategy. Couple that as well I think on the on the IRA. A I think the while people were not brought to justice in terms of individuals. I do think the indictments were appropriate. And I do think as a nation we you have gotten better and I think we were The two thousand eighteen case both of being willing to get better at the domestic front and also Potentially using some of our tools abroad step in the right direction. It doesn't mean though by any means that we're we're secure in twenty twenty..

"To another Republican at this point in President Obama's first term after a brutal midterm in two thousand ten mind you he had lost lost eighty eight members of thirty four percent departure? But it's the reason these people have left Washington that may matter more in the case of the House. Under President Obama the majority of democratic departures fifty four of them can be the ballot box in that infamous shellacking only twenty three members voluntarily retired or resigned and left Obama's Washington under president trump house. Republicans have lost thirty six members at the ballot box. But they've lost far more fifty because of retirement or resignation and there are likely to be more departures over the holidays. The sort of the final prime announcement time in an election when members may decide. They don't want to be part of the House minority particularly in President Trump's Washington so keep these changes in my next week when the house impeachment trial becomes a public affair all that turnover in the past.

"I saw from Ambassador Sutherland. The New Zealand respected was there's no quid pro quo. But now I hardly know the gentleman and trip. Allies are reportedly eyeing others to blame including White House. Chief of Staff Mick. Mulvaney and the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. I don't know what Rudy did. I don't don't know what he's doing over there. People in Look Rudy. That's fine with me and joining me. Now from Bowling Green Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky who sits on the Foreign Foreign Relations Committee senator. Welcome back to meet the Presser. Thanks for having me let me start with the Kentucky results. First before we get into the the the events of later this week just your initial reactions Matt Bevin. Do you see his loss as something bigger than Matt Bevin A. Ah about the Republican Party as a whole will when you look at all the races there were six statewide races we won five out of six. Republicans won five at six. We did did lose. The governor's race where we were disappointed in it but the interesting thing is is we beat a lot of other candidates. No one expected us to so actually in many ways there was sort of a red wave in Kentucky. I think it was mostly particularly about one race and I think the teachers were very unhappy. He tried to fix the pension cross ways with the teachers and I think the teachers anchor occur came out but I think he was trying to do the right thing which is saved the pension for the teachers. But it's tough when you ask people to pay more to keep their pension in place people get unhappy. You know it's interesting. He was the only one of the candidates you talked about the rest of the of the Republican candidates. At one below below him he he decided to nationalize this race. Make get about president trump making about impeachment in hindsight. Was that a mistake. You think we know a lot of candidates do that because we have conservative voters in Kentucky who elect elect federal representatives overwhelmingly because they're socially conservative. And they do support president trump's. I don't think it's a bad strategy necessarily but I think that he had some other things to overcome. One thing was the anger of the teachers but another was some problems within the Republican base. He lost some Republican counties that other Republicans Republicans got over sixty percent so there was also a problem within his base. And that's a complicated matter but there are a lot of specific reasons and fights within the Republican Party. They may have heard him Let me move to the events that we're going to be taking place this week. I let me just simply ask you. Have you been reading the transcripts that they've been released. I've been reading the reports of the actual transplant scripts. I haven't seen it but I guess my impression so far is I think the American people want fairness and I don't think they're going going to judge fairness when they're accusing president trump of the same thing. Joe Biden did threatening aid if some kind of corruption investigated and seems like everybody both parties. These have been threatening aid if some kind of investigation either doesn't happen or is ended. And so I think really what's going to happen. It's going to say oh. They're impeaching president trump for exactly the same thing that Joe Biden. Did he threatened the aid. They didn't fire someone and supposedly the president did if they didn't investigate someone so it sounds exactly like what Joe Biden didn't if they're working in peace Joe Biden they look like hypocrites in a way for going only after president trump. And having not a word to say about what you did so you think it's perfectly appropriate for the president of the United States who have sought this quid. Pro Quo from Ukraine's government. Let's say set aside. I set aside what I just want you to know. Did the is it appropriate for the president of the United States to engaged in this. I think there's a real question whether you think the president should specifically go go after one person but there's a real question whether Joe Biden should have gone after one prosecutor. It's exactly the same scenario. Says he's a well. Let me finish and I sort of finish. There is a question about that but if it were me I wouldn't give them the aid because we don't have the money we have to actually borrow the money from China to send it to Ukraine. So I'm against the okay. Didn't think it's a mistake to do the aid so I wouldn't played any of these games but I think the American people think it's unfair to treat trumper into one standard and Joe Biden under a different standard. But is that really be. I understand trying to go back. I go back to do. Two wrongs make a right. I want to set that aside because I don't understand why that's always used as a deflection. Does that mean you think it's now okay for the president to act this way. It doesn't matter what we think of at this point if it's wrong for the no Kinda uh-huh does all approach it from a different way. Fairness is one angle and I don't think people are GonNa think this is fair but I think the second angle is this foreign aid by law can only go out to countries that are not corrupt so if you think that a country is acting in a corrupt way president can always withhold aid into the corruption is fixed. So you're going to have to get in the mind of trump and his advisors and say well. He didn't really believe that the vines were corrupt. I think he absolutely does detector tests. Do you think the Biden's were corrupt. And you think you were investigating instigating corruption and that corruption is in the law that you can't give a to a country that has corruption. So there's no way this ends up being a policy debate in a partisan debate and has nothing nothing to do with legality early gallery or impeachment. It's purely partisan way of trying to overturn the election. Do you believe there should be a distinction. Between whether the administrative people in the administration asked for a quid pro quo and whether if there and whether the president himself directed do you think there's a distinction there if there's no proof the president himself self directed it for instance. As we've seen these transcripts indicate about perhaps Mick Mulvaney was was directing. This is that distinction managed to you. I think we've gotten lost in this whole idea of quid pro quo and I think Senator Kennedy Kinda hit the nail on the head. Is that If you're not allowed to give aid to people who are corrupt upped. There's always contingencies on aid. Even even President Obama withheld aid. You know he was supposed to give lethal aid. Congress said give them three hundred million in lethal aid and he sent blankets so presidents since the beginning of time I resisted congress. And there's been this sort of back and forth jockeying over what sent but also presidents have withheld aid before for corruption corruption. So the thing is is I think it's a mistake does I oh. He withheld aid until he got what he wanted. Well if it's corruption and he believes her to be corruption he has every right to withhold aid. So I think it's a big mistake for anybody to argue. Quid pro quo. It didn't have good pro quote. I know that's what the administration's arguing I would make that argument. I would make the argument. That every every politician in Washington other than me virtually is trying to manipulate Ukraine to their purposes. Menendez trotted Murphy tried. It Biden tried at trump started. They're all doing it. They are all trying to manipulate Ukraine to get some kind of investigation either ended investigation or started investigation. Let me ask the question this way though. If if you're the average American citizen watching this should you be concerned that the President United States wanted a foreign government to help investigate a political rival. Do you understand why some people I think that. That's an UN that is basically abusing the office for political gamble to stay. I think you're right chuck but I think an equal number of people are upset upset that Hillary Clinton hired a British spy to hire Russians to get dirt called the steele dossier. So here's Hillary Clinton in the middle of a campaign hiring a foreign spy agency agency or a foreign spy. is you see you did again. You went back and say okay. There's behavior that's bad over here. There's behavior that's bad over there. The house is conditioned bad behavior. When do we put a stop to it? Says No what I'm asking for is that they be treated equally and I think the American public's going to say if you you didn't do anything to Hillary Clinton for hiring foreign spy. Why is it all of a sudden wrong? For President Trump investigates. Well what I would say. Is that people want them to be treated fairly. I'm not saying to wrongs make a right. I'm not even saying I would have done it that way. All I'm saying is is that you're going to impeach president trump and you're gonNA give Hillary Clinton a letter skate so so then I think people see that as unfair and so it becomes partisan that's why no Republicans voted for impeachment. Is there anything you could hear. That might make you are. Are you an open minded juror. Let me ask it that way I. I'm very open minded and fair minded. You not meet a person who is more fair than I am I really do you believe that justice should be colorblind. gender-blind you name it. I think justice should but you know one of our traditions about justice about finding justice is defense should be able to present resent their witnesses. So if you can't call hundred Biden and you can't call the whistle blower. That's not that's sort of a sham. That's not even really a trial so I am fair-minded but the trial has to be fair Air Senator Rand Paul Republican from Kentucky. Thank you for coming on and sharing your views sir. Much appreciate and joining me now from Stamford. Connecticut is Democratic Congressman Congressman. Jim himes who sits on the intelligence committee. Congressman hines. Welcome back to the press. Good morning check. Let me start with this. Will there be new information. The public learns it's from these public hearings on Wednesday morning. There will be new information. I suspect most of the public has not read the released transcripts. And what they're going into here is they are going to hear immensely patriotic beautifully. Articulated Articulate people telling the story of a president resident who was forget quid pro quo quid. Pro Quo is one of these things to muddy the works who extorted of vulnerable country by holding up military aid so yes they are going to hear something new and chuck. If you'll if you'll grant me one second here my head is only now D- combusting from the exchange. You had with Rand Paul. I've I've spent eleven years in public service. Defending the press and when Senator Rand Paul comes on and says that what Donald Trump did and the transcript is is there extorting a foreign government for his personal political gain. And that's exactly the same thing as Joe Biden. Exactly the same thing as what he said. As Joe Biden saying saying that this prosecutor should be released when Joe Biden is acting in consistency with American foreign policy and back then we had a whole list of things that had to be done and this was American foreign policy it was European Union policy it was IMF policy that this prosecutor needed to go when rand. I'm Paul says that that's exactly the same thing as the president of the United States saying you need to find dirt on my political opponent and with all due respect chuck when you say. We'll do the two wrongs make a right. Let's be very clear. The president of the United States demanding extorting a vulnerable country to do his political bidding to go after his opponent. Opponent has nothing to do with Joe Biden executing the foreign policy United States or Hillary Clinton who is a private citizen doing opposition research on her on her her presidential opponent. Those are radically different things. And what the president did is wrong and impeachable. Let me ask you something you just said you think the words quid pro. Quo shouldn't be used anymore. It's a lot of your own colleagues. have been using it. It's part of this debate. Do you feel as if that data were just doesn't penetrate the seriousness with what happened. Well I have two problems with quid. Pro Quo number one. When you're trying to persuade the American people of something? I think that is really pretty simple. Which is at the president acted criminally and extorted in the way of mob boss would extort somebody a vulnerable foreign country? It's probably best not to use Latin words to explain it but the other thing I object to is that this was where the Republicans went. Extortion doesn't require a you. Give me this send all give you that kind of quid pro quo. It simply requires using your muscle to get something that you don't have a right to so look and by the way. Of course the the crowning absurdity here is now that they're all pretty much admitting because ambassador. Sandra has refreshed his recollection. They're all basically glee. Admitting there was a quid pro quo. But Gosh it wasn't that bad. It was exactly the same thing as Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton. So look we gotta get off this quid pro quo thing because it's complicated..

"One of at least three being conducted, the others led by the department of Justice inspector general and the US attorney in Utah while on Capitol Hill Republican Senator Lindsey Graham announced today, his judiciary committee will now back off in his words their own investigation to give the investigator appointed by bar space to do his job. Joining me now is democratic congressman Jim Himes who serves on the house intelligence committee. So congressman hires the president may not have explicitly told bar to launch this investigation. He may have we don't know. Is there any doubt in your mind that he did so implicitly with all of his tweets and comments about it? Of course, not. I mean, this is. This is the sort of ongoing theme of this administration. It's a little bit like the godfather, the godfather doesn't need to explicitly ask for everything. But you know, what when you tweet something out a whole bunch of times when you allude to something eventually your people, especially people like attorney general bar who we know learn the lessons of Jeff Sessions, and therefore has dedicated himself to the service of Donald Trump. You know that he got the message. So the man tasked with overseeing this investigation, John Durham, he's the US attorney for your state of Connecticut. Are you confident hill conducting investigation fairly and impartially? Well, I certainly hope so I don't know a lot about the about the attorney the US attorney he has done this sort of investigation before. And I don't worry at all Anderson, you know, as a member of the intelligence committee. I've seen a lot of the typically secret documents that were the predicate for this investigation. A lot of the original affidavits a lot of the original material that went into this and though not a lawyer. Hey, it was. Really clear that the FBI at a point in time was worried that there might have been some Russian compromise of the Trump campaign, not necessarily Trump himself. The other thing I would say Anderson this really important. We are seeing a rerun of a movie that we have seen time and time again remember year ago. It was this scandal that the Obama administration was doing too many unmasking of classified information. Nothing there. Ten ten Benghazi investigations how many convictions indictments what results from ten Benghazi investigations uranium one a completely made up scandal? So in fact, what's going to happen? Here is exactly what has happened by all with all of the other manufactured politically driven scandals that the Republicans and the defenders of the president cook up, which is that a fair investigation will show that there is absolutely nothing there. In terms of your committee would now investigating the attorneys for the president his family, the Trump organization for possible instruction. That's obviously pretty extraordinary would evidence. Do you have? That's. Lead you in this direction? Well, I guess the way I would answer that Anderson is that when you read the mullahs report, you realize that he looked hard at what was in his scope of investigation that is to say Russian context that sort of thing if you read the molar investigation, you also see that he did very little in terms of looking at other ways. And remember, it is it is this that is at the core of what the intelligence committee must do looking at other ways in which foreign powers Russia in particular might have compromised the president that takes us into the realm of possible real estate transactions that are out there that look a little strange that takes us into the realm of where was the Trump organization getting their money. The president's son himself said that they were getting money from the Russians. That's the kind of thing that my committee as an intelligence committee should and we'll look at congressman Himes..

Joining me now is a member of the house intelligence committee. Congressman Jim Himes who Cohen appeared before today. Also, congressman Gerry Connolly remember of the oversight committee who has Coen questions yesterday in that public hearing, obviously congressman Himes you cannot get into specifics to closed door hearing how much was there information that Michael Cohen provided today the just was filling. In blanks on things you already knew. Or was it new avenues of things, you didn't know can you, sir? I would say a little bit of both. I think he was more comfortable and the proceedings where a lot less adversarial. There were no cameras running. Nobody had to score political points for the cameras. So there was both a lot of filling in appoints. But yes, there was also a new material that took me a little bit by surprise. And I don't mean to be cryptic or flirtatious about that. But enough so that one day of testimony was not enough in he kindly agreed to come back for another day next Wednesday. So he's coming back what? Because everyone didn't have a chance to ask him questions or because there's so much more. There's so much information. There's just more information on it's it's it's all of the above again because we interviewed very differently than the open hearing we had one hour per side. And as a consequence we were really able to get into it when you say when our society when our for the Democrats for Republicans and forty five minutes and that allowed us to get into the.
