Bolton book says Trump asked Chinese president for reelection help

"Yesterday there was that anvil of a tell all book from former trump national security adviser John Bolton dropping in media reports including an interview on ABC ABC's political director Rick Klein is here and Rick start with the court rulings a president who presumably planned to boast to supporters in the upcoming rally an election that he fill the courts with conservatives but two big losses your thoughts yeah it's a strange it's a strange situation for him because on one level you're right this could demoralize supporters have been so proud of these pics I and it's kind of strange for the president to have these blows dealt to him I basically citing him for a lack of confidence governance company governance among other things on the other hand did he really want to deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants that that existed dreamers right before the election he really want to get people to lobby fired he doesn't I think personally care that much about the social issues in it maybe the Dodge some legislative and legal bullets here and he can now turn this into a rallying cry he's at he's tweeting this just this morning as I'm sure you've seen that Todd maybe the courts have it out against Donald Trump and eventually turned into a different rallying cry at the rally tomorrow yeah well an apparently everybody has it out for him including John Bolton and let's take that up the president is also threatening legal action to prevent his former national security adviser John Bolton from publishing that tell all book the room where it happened it's supposed to be released to the public Tuesday but the cat way out of the bag with interviews he characterizes the president as ill informed driven almost exclusively by his desire for reelection easily influenced by dictators here's your colleague Martha Raddatz add the full interview is going to air Sunday night how would you describe trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin I think Putin thinks he can plan like a fiddle I think Putin is smart tough I think he sees that he's not faced with a serious adversary here I don't think he's worried about Donald Trump well I think they did this kind of judgment from former national security adviser is almost without precedent while the president is still in office to say that he is unfit for office at the catalog confirmation in essence of the charges that brought the impeachment inquiry and a roughly similar situation regarding China it is damning it is devastating I look president has weathered plenty of books before by people like James call me all the way through Arosa but what makes this may be different is the the timing and to have this now dove tail with Joe Biden's messaging about the president of being unprepared for crises as played out with over nineteen and this tense moment around race relations it challenges the president in a fundamental way and he is out there tarring John Bolton I'm saying he's a liar and and it made things often is is out for profit motives but he's going to have to answer for lots of specifics here as well as the general sense that a growing number of Republicans will say that this president just doesn't know what he's doing will ease some of the allegations the president didn't know that Finland isn't part of Russia but you mentioned China it barely according to Bolton trump pleaded with Chinese leader xi to help him win reelection by buying lots of stuff from American farmers and this is from a president who was impeached although not removed from office but impeached for inappropriate relationship with a foreign leader but the well Rick didn't matter to his base or fervent Republican backers like Jim Jordan are you hearing that any of this matters I don't think it's surprising the people that were inclined to to not believe the president a way I think where it has a greater impact is in how the cumulative efforts of of so many folks have to draw on the shortcomings of this White House and you have a Republican group out there that's been a trolling the president with ads in Washington and elsewhere questioning his fitness for office I don't think that John Bolton or really anyone is capable of of of a mass defection among the trump base but for lots of orders you might have questions about his is ready yes or maybe just be weary of the drama surrounding Donald Trump I'm John Bolton it offers an important piece of evidence from someone who literally was in that room when it happened

Lawmakers hold hearing on police brutality and racism in America

"Today today the the house house judiciary judiciary committee committee is is hearing hearing testimony testimony on on police police brutality brutality and and racial racial profiling profiling it's it's the the same same week week that that house house Democrats Democrats introduced introduced sweeping reforms like banning police chokehold ending no knock warrants for drug searches and forcing states to collect data on police misconduct felonious Florida brother of George Floyd who died under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer a death that touched off international outrage spoke at today's hearing when you watch a big brother who looked up to for your whole life dia di bigger boys mom I'm here to ask you to make it stop stop the pain stop was the entire Joe was called by him and he was like no it please listen to the crowd I'm making to you now to the calls about family and the callers rang out the streets across the world well borrow backgrounds genders and races have come together to demand change NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now Kelsey of Fulham's Floyd very powerful broke down in tears and just one of several witnesses today most call by Democrats so what else did you hear I think that I we heard one of the more moving moments from Floyd's testimony there he he was very clearly emotional after having the funeral was just yesterday I think one of the theme that we heard across the witnesses from both parties is that there was an acknowledgement that the catheter Floyd was wrong and horrifying and that reforms are necessary but there was not a lot of agreement or commitment about the right way to go about seeking those reforms I I will say that it was very interesting also to listen to one of the Republican witnesses her her brother was a federal officer who died it near the end the protests in Oakland California and she said that she empathized with the family of George Ford and she called for the same kind of justice for her brother she was called by Republican she's a former Republican congressional candidate in California so there was it there was shared horror on at the death of George Floyd but that that this is not yet quite at a point where there's an agreement about what to do about the striking to see a Democrats and Republicans have different lists of possible law enforcement reform you put them next to each other they're they're different and as we heard from Tonya Democrats have on their list banning chokeholds Republicans don't his representative Karen bass a Democrat talking about national standards for police it should never be that you can do a chokehold in one city and not in another there should be basic standards there should be basic accreditation there should be continuing education just as there are in so many other professions tells you what else are Democrats proposing while Democrats have off of a very extensive bill they're talking at a bedside from just the typical day want to ban what is known as qualified immunity it gives it is being used by police officers to to said that they would be immune from from from trials essentially from civil prosecutions I loved it that is something that has been controversial I will say that the the issue of chill cold has not been completely litigated between Democrats and Republicans there is some openness among Republicans to consider a ban but there are also talking about de escalation ways to lessen potential for choke holds that there there's a feeling among Republicans that they do not want to constrain the local police so what is possible here and something that the Republicans staff has raised with me is that there's a possibility that outside of the building across have proposed there could be additional separate bipartisan negotiations and talks we do know that Republicans in the center working on their own proposals which we may see in the coming days well and it could be said that Republicans are using calls to de fund police as evidence the Democrats are weak on crime here's the Judiciary Committee ranking member the Republican Jim Jordan it is pure insanity to defund the police and the fact that my Democrat colleagues won't speak out against this crazy policy it's just that frightening well having to speak to a representative Jordan tomorrow but meanwhile Democrats have spoken out against you de funding the police is something protesters are calling for representative bass called it a distraction senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia so the idea is crazy of so where does this debate go are they just talking past each other well it is interesting to watch Democrats figure out how to respond to these demands from their base it is not uncommon for either party to be trapped in a situation where the activists portion of their bases calling for something more extreme than the establishment partial portions of the party you're willing to get behind by and large elected Democrats in Congress are not in favor of the concept of de funding the police they say actually attempting to rewrite a little bit of what that means we've heard some some Democrats say when they hear D. fund they hear reform and that they that they think that the real intention here is to change the way the police interact with the communities that they serve NPR

IRS Budget Cuts, Staffing Challenges Create Coronavirus Payment Headaches

"Cash payments delivered by the IRS through direct deposit to millions of people over the next few weeks. That's the goal Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin set last week at the White House. It is a very large priority. The president has made clear. We want to get this money quickly into your hands. Most experts say as many as sixty million people who already have bank information at the IRS may get those payments quickly but that is a fraction of the one hundred and fifty million individual returns the IRS projects will be filed this year not to mention people who get social security income or the people who don't normally file taxes. They'll be looking for their checks to and that has warmer. Irs Commissioner Mark Iverson very concerned. So there's a dearth of people who are qualified to do the work and they're overworked Iverson. Who's now vice of the business tax advisor? Alliant group says Congress is largely to blame they cut the IRS budgets by roughly twenty percent over the last decade technology investments. Hiring and training have all fallen behind that is a serious problem as the IRS prepares for a flood of New Bank and personal information from people trying to get their money. I am worried that if the IRS tries to do too much too quickly you could have a major data breach Nina who served eighteen years as the irs internal watchdog known as the taxpayer advocate says customers are also feeling the cuts. Some of. What's the cutting floor. Is Quality Taxpayer Service Right now? Phone Lines are overloaded and the IRS Corona Virus website warns quote. Do not call check back for updates. They say most people don't need to do anything. And there's a new website on the way to update your information but Olsen says many elderly and low income people don't have Internet access and need to call. What if they moved or got a refund on a prepaid debit card that expired? What if a bank account closed Olsen says people have a lot of questions and that is really a problem when you are paying out money to people in a crisis situation where people already anxious and it could be a matter of life or death of an individual or Business Lloyd dog at the top Democrat on the committee that oversees tax issues blames Congressional Republicans for cutting the IRS budget particularly after a political scandal in twenty thirteen. They don't like the. Irs is great campaign whipping boy so our S. is underfunded to assure that it cannot fulfill its job in a appropriate way Ohio Republican Jim Jordan led the criticism of the irs over scandal involving the targeting of groups applying for nonprofit status Jordan says the cuts were necessary because the agency wasn't playing fair. And then coming in asking for more taxpayer. Dollars is like really the the that that just not gonNA fly. Some funding was restored to help execute the GOP led tax cuts twenty eighteen and Jordan says the IRS is doing just fine now. I think they can handle the job. Now if they can't and were willing to to look at the evidence and and hear him out the IRS has been stretched even further by the Corona Virus and IRS spokesman did not address the budget cuts but says most workers are on the job and the virus won't impact their ability to get the payments out given all the challenges.

"jim jordan" Discussed on The Takeout

"From. CBS News this is the takeout with major Garrett while we are creating jobs odds and killing terrorists the congressional Democrats are obsessed with demented hopes is crazy witch hunts and arrange partisan. They say all they know how to do the very recognizable voice for the forty Fifth President United States Donald John Trump at a rally a keep America a great rally in Wildwood New Jersey. That was on Tuesday of this week. Excuse me a major Garrett back in the remaining in the very quiet kind of sterile office Jim Jordan here in the Rayburn House office building For the this conversation of TAKEOUT I. I listened intently. Congressman to the president's legal counsel. They use much less time. The Democrats did and I heard two things and I want to help. If you can have you so help me understand at one point. I heard them say he didn't do it. And there's no evidence he did and all the witnesses buttress the fact he didn't do it and then I heard even if he did it. It's not impeachable cool. So which is it. The fact support the president Completely which which argument that you do you believe in do you find more compelling and persuasive he did it and it's not impeachable impeachable or he never did. It never did it. I mean the facts. I think that's why that's why we've. We've focused on the fact that that I talked about earlier. The reason the president's defense team took less time is because because a couple of hours of facts beats you know twenty one hours of Adam Schiff talking about presumption discussions and hearsay. Case was case was built on all that I mean they brought in all all these witnesses who said someone told me what someone else said about something that might have had it was that was their case. I mean we had Sunland Sean. Our number one witnesses. I saw you ambassador cited six eleven times in their report he was when we went through unchecked. Who did they cite? Most in their twenty one hour presentation Gordon silent which which video clips of the most up. Gordon solid. The same Gordon Sahlin who had to amend. His deposition testimony had to make seven corrections to to his testimony when he was deposed. That's the guy that was their main witness. The Guy who who talked about you know so and so told so and so what someone else said to somebody else. And that was the basis of their impeach his testimony was there there was a quid pro quo on a meeting with Alinsky and the president but there was a presumption that there was a link between the aid and the announcement of investigation. Yeah and I ask him during the hearing. I said 'cause he talked about The quid pro quo. I said when did it happen. And he is responsible for what. When did when did when did announcement happen if they had to announce that they were doing an investigation to get the aid when the announcement happen? Well it did it and they got the money they got the meeting and they got the call so there was no action taken Hakin but to me. That's the whole case. If it was a quid pro quo. And that's what they said. Remember the day before September. Twenty four th when Nancy Pelosi announces. They're gonNA start an impeachment investigation Asian before she's even seen the transcript by the way because the transcript wasn't released until the September twenty fifth. She Announces Impeachment Investigation. And it was all about this. Quid pro quo. That was all the talk. And then we get to call transcript. And they're like well. Maybe not so much a quid pro quo. But then later they come back to the quid pro quo. That never happened it. Never they got the call. They got the money they got the meeting. And there was Never Evan announcement from the Ukrainians they were GonNa do any kind of investigation to Barack Obama or the Biden's and Barista is to remind our audience company hundred Biden worked for well. I don't know if he worked for him but he got paid. He was on the board of directors Corporate governance was the theoretical area of expertise. He brought it has a long history of from the vantage point of not only the United States but others of being corrupt and have An oligarch and corrupt people in around that company remind people. So Jake I want you to care for us now. This sound bite number two again. The recognizable voice of Adam. Schiff Talking about this idea that if there is a vote to call to call in the Senate trial additional witnesses and John Bolton is one of them the White House as you indicated early or earlier would would cert- executive privilege and legal wrangling. That might ensue. Please play that now jake number to the president's lawyers are this duplicitous. I kid you not. They come come into the Senate which they refer to as a court and they say. The House should have sued in court. To enforce subpoenas on witnesses like John Bolton and go to court and they say the house may not sue in court to compel a witness to testify. That's basically what are we going to get a fair trial or or are we not just to catch the audience that reference at the end of that sound bite they go to court and they say the house may not sue in court to compel a witness to testify about a separate matter dealing with Don mcgann the former White House counsel. So the shift contention is wait a minute. If you tell us to go to court to compel John Bolton to testify for the House investigation and and the position of the White House in separate matter but also relevant Don mcgann is you can't go to court to compel testimony. That's a ridiculous argument. Because you're saying one thing on one hand and arguing other legal point on the other but remember Don mcgann testified was deposed for over thirty hour of a special counsel so Adam shift he's trying to have it both ways Having to have it both ways but no but remember and Don mcgann testified for thirty hours and there were White House lawyers lawyers present. Tell me tell me when White House lawyers were present for any depositions that took place in the House Zero Adam. Schiff wouldn't let them Adam. Schiff also would not let age there would have been more witnesses. Mrs Come Forward and testify if Adam Schiff would allowed agency council to be there so not not not the White House. Legal Team Pat sip alone in the White House counsel but just State Department lawyers lawyers if they could have come with some of the witnesses some of the witness said no Adam Schiff said nope. We're not GonNa let I've been on the oversight committee for a long time. Been Congress thirteen years. We've been through lots of these depositions. I was on the Benghazi. Select Committee the Benghazi. We had people who had left. Government like Cheryl Mills who had her own private counsel but guess what there was also State Department lawyers present for her depositions. Adam Schiff said Nope we're not going to allow that so now for Adam Schiff to make this comparison to Don mcgann who sat for thirty hours in front of the special counsel. That is ridiculous. So Adam Schiff has said so many things over the you know. We listened to him for more than half of the twenty one hours. I think the The House Management Team House managers put on their case This is the same Adam Schiff. Who for two years told us? There's more than circumstantial evidence that president trump colluded with Russia to impact the two thousand sixteen election. That was false. This is the the same Adam Schiff. Who Said Oh oh the newness memo? That wasn't accurate. Michael Horwitz just told US last month. It was totally aggregating Devin. Nunes got wrong in his memo. It was is worse than we thought. Adam Schiff has the same guy who said the FIS a process was just fine with with Carter page. Oh really Mr Horowitz. Just didn't investigation for pages but now admits it wasn't yeah in court papers Elsa admit it was wrong house amid was wrong on national television. Jim Komi Jimmy said he said I was wrong. I was overconfident. Infinite two sentences consecutive sentences of Jim. Komi that I never thought I would hear. I never thought here Jim Comey said was wrong. And he was overconfident So so Adam Schiff said Adam Schiff has said that. Oh we're going to hear from the whistle. We look forward to hearing from the whistle Adam. Schiff said we've had no contact with the whistleblower when in fact his office net with them. So now we're supposed to believe everything Adam Schiff says for you know ten and a half hours of a twenty one hour presentation. I think Mo- I think a lot of Americans okay we. We've we've had we've heard enough from Adam Schiff all right now. I want to go back to you. You have a voice and you're not a disinterested party you've I believe you've been over to the Senate a little bit to observe some of this So I wanNA give you a moment Let's say In Theory Mitt Romney Lisa Murkowski. Lamar Alexander and Susan. Collins are listening. Listen to this Friday morning because it'll be released nine. Am Friday morning here in Washington. That's before they'll be a debate on whether there will be depositions and documents and a big vote talk to them about why they should not vote for witnesses. Because it'll never end. As I said this argument I mean for them. They're like I'd like like to hear from John Bolton you're saying don't listen to John Bolton because they'll be somebody else this disattached is remember. It started it started in July of Twenty sixteen with the the the trump Russia investigation. This congress it started with the Michael Michael Cohen. The first announced witness of the diverse big hearing I announce witness Michael Cohen. That that was that was going to be then they were going to get him on. This emoluments issue then it was. Oh it was the White House security clearance issue there. We're going to go after Jared Nevada on the White House security thing then of course it was it was the Mueller investigation. And so it'll is never stop so depositions and documents is a rabbit hole the the whole thing is like it is never going to end. They announced impeachment. A nine of the skews me sixteen of the Judiciary Committee members voted to move forward with impeachment before the a phone call between president trump and presents. Wednesday ever happened. So this is this is the pattern is gonna go. Do you really want to continue to put our country through. What's now been four months months of an impeachment investigation? Do you really want to do in that do that knowing that it'll never be enough for these guys. There's always gonna be something else. Just look at what they've said and would vote for witnesses from anyone but Senate Republicans in particular be an act from your vantage point hostile to the constitution. I think it's I think it's it's it's something that just simply not warranted. They had an opportunity to call whatever witnesses they want. They got to pick all their witnesses. We've had zero so so now. If they go with Bolton as I said earlier the scores go from seventeen to zero to eighteen zero and my point is it will not stop there. Because I don't think it's ever going to change the outcome. The outcome come. We all know this president deserves to be acquitted. The facts are on his side. The constitution is on his side. If you're going to just keep prolong this. The Democrats are always going to want more..

"jim jordan" Discussed on The Takeout

"From CBS News. This is the takeout with Major Garrett. As I'm sure you've seen the presence own former chief of staff General Kelly Has stated that he believed on Bolton but more importantly he also recognizes the importance of calling John Bolton as a witness of swearing wearing him in of letting the senators from themselves That very relevant testimony. That's the voice of Adam. Schiff currently the House Intelligence Committee Maddie chairman. Our guest this week is Jim Jordan Republican from Ohio a frequent rhetorical combatant with Adam Schiff And I'd like to get your response. Congressman Jordan. What you just heard that was at a press conference that Adam Schiff and the other house managers have after the White House counsel concluded its opening statements in the impeachment trial? Now does he believe John. Bolton should testify but he quotes John Kelly former chief of staff to the president saying I believe John Bolton should testify. Yeah I mean look like I said before someone tells the New York Times what John Bolton's draftsmanship supposedly says and and we're supposed to stop the press to stop everything anything. He's gotta come test but I just don't buy it does John Kelly's voice mean anything to you in this manner. Not Really I mean look I think. The facts are so clearly on on the president's side if John Bolton testifies or doesn't testify is not going to change the fundamental fact shows before we went to break a chance articulate those from your point of view those these these four facts have not changed will not change. We'll never change at the at the We got the transcript of the call. Something the Democrats didn't think the president would do actually released a transcript. He released the transcript. You can see see clearly. There is no quid. Pro Quo outlined on the transcript. In fact second fact is that Ukraine is didn't even know aid was on hold eight had been paused for fifty five. They didn't even know that at the time of the phone call third both individuals on the call have repeatedly repeatedly said there was no pressure. There was no pushing there was no linkage linkage between release of the foreign assistance money and any type of announcement of an investigation by the Ukraines linkage whatsoever and the most important fact is tell me what the Ukrainians did tell me what action they took to get the aid released. Did they start an investigation. Did they promised to start an investigation. Did they announce they were going to do an investigation. It never ever happened. So those facts never change have never changed will never change regardless of what someone thinks. John Bolton's draft manuscript. Might say what what what. Yeah Mr Kelly thinks that Mr Bolton is saying that doesn't change those facts so the facts on the presence side the constitutional argument. Mr Dershowitz pointed out Mr Dershowitz even said let's this assume that that what what Mister said is is in the mainstream that actually happened. It's still not impeachable. And then of course you have the whole legal due process lack of due process argument him as well so those three arguments are so strong for the president. We know it's not going to change the outcome. He's going to be acquitted. which is the right decision? Let's get on with that. Let's get this done and get back to the the people's business so when you see John Bolton apparently wanting to testify he said so. There's manuscript suggest things that possibly could undercut the president's argument John Kelly agreeing with him saying I believe him. Is this a Kabbalah former people who work directly for the president teaming up against him and what do you think their motivations are. I mean these are people who worked for the president. He hired them. He worked on his behalf on behalf of this country and his agenda also fired him right. Is that what this is about. Who knows who knows who knows what? Mister Kelly's motivation is service to our country But the the question at hand right now is This impeachment process which is divided the country for four months this impeachment process which I think will never end. The Democrats have told us that Algorithm said the day before we started the markup in the judiciary committee eighty out green. Says if the Senate doesn't convict it will not end so they are out to get this president. They've been out to get him as I said before he was even elected and it will not stop but we just need to understand. Stand that so. Let's get this this crazy impeachment ridiculous ordeal over with and let's get focused on the things that we told the American people were going to do when Adam Schiff says And Chuck Schumer the Democratic leader in the Senate says John Bolton is willing to testify under oath and the president is not mick. Mulvaney is not and others we have subpoenaed or we'd like to disappeared from the administration. Won't that Oughta tell you something. He's willing to tell the truth under oath they're not willing to appear under oath therefore he's more believable than those who won't appear. How do you respond to the executive privilege issue? I mean this is this has long term implications has real implications for the country and the separation of powers the executive branch. What what do you think is the underlying danger? Well you you start you start saying that people have to testify who have Who who work closely with the president? So then you're going to. You're going to diminish the ability billy for the chief executive to have those candid conversations that need to take place between the president and his top advisers to get the policies done that. The American people elected a president to do when the when you boil this all down about the sixty three million Americans who voted for president trump to get the very kind of policies done that. He campaigned on when one of the things. I campaigned on was. He's not a big fan of foreign aid. He ran on that he also said look. Look we we know how corrupt Ukraine is. They're they're one of the young said one of the three most corrupt countries on the planet. And you had a new guy who gets elected. Oh in the third quarter Keith. Key factor is he wants our allies to help more. It's called the whole burden sharing thing. It may how many times does he mentioned Chancellor Merckel you need to do more Germany to help with with our allies in this area. So those were key things he ran on he was trying to implement those policies. He's especially in light of Zilinskiene the new guy he was the TV personnel the comedian who gets elected and he ran on anti corruption platform. Let's see if this guy's legit so for fifty five days. We checked him out. And guess what I'm convinced he's Legit I actually think he's a genuine reformer and so was the president because we had four key meetings between senior the US officials and presidents Alinsky. And you saw the Ukrainians the New People. His new party elected in their parliament. Begin to take the actions. They said they were going to do. So let me ask you about that that from a evidentiary point of view Several of your colleagues so I think you have very good working relationships. With Mike McCall. He has an office down the hall from Your Mac. Thornberry Those are significant voices within the house. Republican Party On matters of national security. Ron Johnson is senator from Wisconsin. You know him well. I think you may have worked with them in Just those three but there are others During this fifty five day period Had their staff contact people at the Office of Management and budget looking for explanations on the hold of the Military Assistance Congressionally appropriated signed by the president and yet in the evidentiary record. There's no mention in the the responses to these staffers. Working on behalf of these people you respect and work alongside about the two issues just identified burden-sharing and corruption. If those were the reasons seasons all along why couldn't those people working in co Co general collaboration with the president because they're Republicans. Get those answers. I mean if the answers were. We're so clear and vivid and explainable. Why didn't they ever get them? Well the the answers were spelled out in the call no no but but but but it in these e mail conversations conversations. They never got that explanation and it seems to me that would have been an easy explanation for the office of Management and budget or the Pentagon or someone to provide. They couldn't provide it so so it seems to me. They were uncertain why the aid was being upheld. Well we understand what was going on. So tightly held president that nobody else knew there was a government wide. Look at foreign aid. In general general there there was a there. Were studying but that could have been mentioned. Well it was mentioned when we when we deposed David Hale secretary at at Undersecretary the Department state he talked about the extensive study. They were doing in abroad since on foreign aid. So that was there. But the president mentioned on the call he mentions is concern about burdensharing he he brings up he brings up Chancellor Merckel to presence Alinsky and the second page of the call where present Linski talking about. We're GONNA drain the swamp here like you're doing in the United States. Wouldn't it be more believable from an evidentiary point of view. Wouldn't it more buttress. The president's argument if in these email conversations that staffers offers empowered by legitimate members of Congress asking a specific question about something. We have a long standing interest in the administration. Said you know what it's a review. It's a burden-sharing issue. And it's a corruption something. All these things seemed to me could have been communicated communicated rapidly and been consistent with this argument which Democrats say wasn't the real reason at all. It's a post post game rationale to obscure what this really was about which was about leverage to get political investigations. And the like but a couple of things that Norcem some key facts like the August thirty first phone. Call that Senator Johnson had with the president where the Senator Johnson says. Look we think we things Alinsky is worth the risk. We thanks very strong on that very strong and president getting the president's face a little bit and Senator Johnson was getting ready to travel to and has an important meeting Kalinski along with Democrat. Senator a Murphy But in that conversation the practices Ron. I think you're gonNA like our decision. So the president was already starting to become more convinced that you know what this this this Alinsky guy is a genuine. He's the real deal. He's Legit we're actually going to. The president was communicated that to senator after a pretty pretty good exchange. And what else did what else did. The president mentioned the Senator Johnson that call he says Ron Germany thinks we're smart because we're paying it all. They won't pay so he brought up the burden-sharing issue issue with Senator Johnson. Few days later Senator Johnson goes to the meeting and remember. This is in early. September when they're in Kief him and Senator Murphy and and the Ukrainians already know eight has been pause they never bring up if the fact that they have to announce an investigation to get the linkage. Never come if ever there was an opportunity. Four to come up. That would have been the moment because you had a bipartisan senators. Who are devoted to release the money? That was the moment and that they don't bring it up so this this idea the resolve this pressure for them to make an announcement. It just doesn't pan out the facts. Do Not Demonstrate. In fact they showed just the opposite. That's the voice of Jim Jordan. We're in his very quiet office here in the office building. We will continue our conversation about impeachment. It's been and other issues on.

Pelosi not yet ready to transmit Trump's impeachment to the Senate

Pelosi not yet ready to transmit Trump's impeachment to the Senate

"For the past several weeks. There's been one burning question dominating this saga. When Will Nancy Pelosi? The speaker of the house transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate and therefore launched the trial process in the Senate. While this morning Speaker Pelosi finally addressed at that point. Take a listen now in terms of impeachment. You'll keep asking me the same question. I keep giving you the same answer. As I said right from the start art we need to see that the arena in which we are sending our managers is that too much to ask of course addressing that point in an answering that question or two different things. A Pelosi later added that she's not holding onto the articles indefinitely and that she would probably transmit them soon soon. I've got to fantastic guests to help me make sense of all of this political gamesmanship in a few minutes will be talking with CNN. National Security and legal analysts. Susan Hennessy but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN Politics Congressional reporter. Alex Rogers Alex. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks so much for me so it seems to me. After days. Days Days of stasis on this story we did learn in the last twenty four hours several things one as I just said speaker. Pelosi said she's likely to transmit these soon she's not going to hold onto them forever. To President. Trump actually asserted yet again today. He's opened. Witnesses named some witnesses. He's interested in of course. Course which are total non starters For the Democrats in terms of Adam Schiff or Joe Biden or hunter Biden or the whistle blower but is has said and he's going to really leave this to the Senate. We learned that Mitch McConnell the majority leader in the Senate went to the White House and briefed the president on what the contours of this trial is going to look like. So it sounds like the president has more information about Mitch. McConnell's vision of how this trial is going to play out then speaker. Pelosi does which is why she's still hanging onto the articles as we're recording this at least and Finally we've learned that there seems to be a strategic divide going on between the president and and his advisors and or some of his advisers and certainly the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell in terms of whether or not he wants some very vociferous defenders from the House Republican Conference To join in defending his case in the Senate McConnell of course worried that Too partisan partisan of abroal may upset the apple cart with some of the moderate center. Republicans that they need to keep on board with the plan here so all of those. Those things have emerged in the last twenty four hours and yet Nancy Pelosi is still holding onto the articles of impeachment. What does that mean soon when you expect her to send these to the Senate or she said today today I'll send them over when I'm ready and we're still trying to figure out what leverage she has Senator Majority Leader Mitch? McConnell said yesterday that she has none he has the votes. It's a simple majority devote Democrats are hoping that there are four Republicans to join them. But now we've talked to Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney and all of them are on Mitch McConnell. Donald Seidel Miss. So we're wondering here. What Nancy Pelosi is looking for if there's any possible signal that she could get from The Republican leader. She says that she just wants to see the rules. Mitch McConnell says let's just go back to the nineteen ninety nine precedent under Clinton and. Just run with that now she. It seemed to me when she walked into a press conference. Today Should two main message point. She wanted to hit when it came to the issue of impeachment. One was. She's not buying this whole Mitch. McConnell nineteen ninety nine Clinton enroll. She thinks he's not portraying how those were set up namely the Clinton rules were devised in a bipartisan agreement. And I think there was one hundred hundred nothing vote supporting them. In the United States Senate That was hammered out with the blessing of the leaders. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle. Nothing like that is going on with McConnell when Schumer right now is Pelosi's point number one so she doesn't By his argument that this is playing by the Clinton rules. That was one thing she wanted to drive home but number two it seems she wanted to sort of list Her reasons that she thinks she's been victorious in this decision to hold onto the articles articles namely that it has put the issue of documentation and witnesses front and center in a way that if the articles had immediately gone over in December. Maybe they weren't. What do you make of that? I mean her point is that there's a number of witnesses who have not been Who have refused to testify and the Clinton Peterman process? All of those witnesses had already talked before that that evidence was already out there But the thing is that she right now is losing not only those moderate Republicans Republicans at your needs but also Democrats. There's a number of them who've said in the past couple of days that let's just let's just get this started senator. Dianne Feinstein said if we're going to do it she she she should send them over. I don't see what good delay does. She's later walk that back. Other Congressmen have also Adam Smith at today on CNN. Basically said let's transmit these articles goals that's during the Senate trial and then he later said I misspoke wait. I missed how Senator Feinstein walked back to her comments. What did she say? Because it's all those comments my eyes widen so I I missed the walk back. She said today that those comments are now being taken out of context okay. I don't know if that's a real walk back. They're not out of context are they. I don't know vow. The the thing though is what does holding the articles now do for the Democrats. Are they really going to be able to change the rules. Or they can get these witnesses upfront. No Mitch McConnell has the votes. And he's ready to go he's made that crystal clear what What do you make of this concern concern that? McConnell has apparently expressed that Having some very vocal House Republican conference members who were Lord Diehard trump supporters at all costs be part of his defense may upset the apple cart of sort of the Republican unanimity. That you just described that he's been able cobbled together. How is how big of a concern do you sense? Is this for McConnell. So we have some reporting from Sarah Westwood Phil Mattingly came out today. There's there's this struggle between some of president trump's allies who think that a legalistic argument by Patsy. Baloney the White House counsel so is Not going to be good enough. You need to win this. It's it's not only trial but it's somewhat theater have your most for syphilis. Allies Congressman Jim Jordan Congressman Mark Meadows. Some of these people who can articulate the president's argument in different style. Then you also have Senator Mitch McConnell's view. It appears where those those people are going to turn off exactly the Republicans that you need. You Need Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski the people people in the middle so the president right now is receiving this conflicting advice. And we don't know yet. I don't think the decision has been made on who is going to defend the president and the trial yet. Yeah no we have not heard that decision we know that Pets Bologna and his team. The White House counsel on his team Have put together a plan and that there seems to be one but we don't yet know exactly who will be doing the defending of the president. And I think that the president who we know consume so much Fox News and sort of has this echo chamber constantly feedback loop in in. His mind doesn't always necessarily think the way McConnell does about Are we just doing a full on brawl with the Democrats here or is there work to be done with your own party here and McConnell's clearly trying to make the case Mr President don't lose sight. Yes you're going to be acquitted but you've got to still keep your party on board. I think right now if you just run the nineteen ninety nine Clinton trial rules you will see each side making their argument and then a couple of days of questions from the senators and then you vote whether to dismiss the whole thing right then there or then to also get into the witnesses that Democrats think will bolster their case my final question for you before we go to break you say that Democrats will boast of their case. What about the fact that Donald Trump is still out there saying he wants them? Witnesses I Mitch. McConnell sort of in a no witnesses camp. He doesn't necessarily want to see Joe Biden or Hunter Abidin or the whistle blower called. So there's a difference there too is they're not of course There are some Republicans who want to see honor Biden. They WANNA Have I think Senator Ron Johnson said this week the full gamut of witnesses. But you've also seen Senator Susan Collins who you know really the crucial senator here say a that it would be inappropriate inappropriate for president trump to say to China investigate on our Biden Susan Collins once witnesses But we we don't really think that means also hundred I think we've that means you know people with firsthand evidence other people who testified before the house. Yeah actual impertinent witnesses to this What these articles of impeachment are about and therefore pertinent to this trial? Alex let's take a pause and our conversation for the moment legal analysts Susan. Hennessy will join us right

Lawmakers debate articles of impeachment into the night

"What are moderate lawmakers thinking of impeachment it's easy to know what the more decided lawmakers think or at least what they say Democrats see an abuse of power by the president Republicans see a web of unfair plots against him lawmakers in a house committee had a lot to say yesterday night Democrat Lucy make bath of Georgia said her vote is for the constitution with a heavy heart Republican Jim Jordan argued that trump voters should take this process personally it's not just because they don't like the president they don't like us they don't like the sixty three million people who voted for this president I believe the president abuse the power of his office putting his own interests above the needs of our nation and for that I must vote my conscience but is every lawmaker so certain and here is cloudy agrees Alice's here good morning good morning see so what is the process in which we're hearing these lawmakers so today lawmakers will get into the actual nuts and bolts of debating the articles of impeachment abuse of power and obstruction of Congress before all forty one members of the judiciary panel it follows the first of this two part hearing that started with opening remarks last night it's what's known on Capitol Hill is a mark appearing in those are generally very technical committee processes to hammer out an approved legislation so these can be considered a Monday in part of the job that not this time not this time the stakes are too high and so there's plenty of interest in that changes all that we understand that Republicans are looking you're proposing an array of amendments those are expect to get shot down by Democrats but it will also help extend this hearing my several our okay so Democrats have said they're comfortable with their course but as some of them less comfortable than others yes it's a different story for Democrats which include freshman members to flip their districts from red to blue in twenty eighteen many of these new members from these moderate this X. are keeping their decisions close to the vest here's freshman representative MAX rose he's a military veteran who represents New York we are given as the level of seriousness that is deserving of most says second most serious thing I could ever do in this institution he said the first was considering an act of war and he's not alone taking his time in deliberating his decision and publicly rush to judgment some like representative Alyssa slot can of Michigan aren't ready to announce and she's planning to meet with constituents in Michigan and Michigan district ahead of the potential impeachment vote next week you know Jerry Nadler the democratic chairman had remarkable line in his opening statement last night he urged his fellow lawmakers not to approve of something that they know in their heart is wrong Republicans are certainly been very public and defending the president and robe changing the subject the whistle blower hunter Biden but are they all completely on board that everything the president did was completely okay although most Republicans are remaining fiercely loyal to the president throughout this enquiry there are those that take pause with the claims against him that he invited foreign interference into our elections for example Republican Francis Rooney of Florida is expected to vote against the impeachment however in recent days he issued a statement reiterating that the president's behavior related to Ukraine was improper and he should not undermine the work of our ambassadors and foreign service officers who spend careers protecting US interests around the world thanks for the update thank you for having me the ten peers clutter

They'll take a left turn. So we'll see at lea- your roving correspondent music will be there for reasonable doubt this this could be the best our the universes verses The highlight next week. Would you a- are they gonNA collect everyone cell phones and putting them put them in those little magnetic attic comedy clubs now or what's the protocol that's a I you know there's supposedly it's a locked facility facility with just invite only in a very strict security. I have not heard of taking these cell phones or not but I know old I by by belief is without divulging too much that there will be a very strict Observation you big. They'll be a way that we can track. Who's doing the stolen so it will be filmed professionally or it'll be filmed around like it needs to be filmed to get it to certain franchises who may want to like look essentially game film? It'll be filmed like you would film Something that's instructional for the NFL. That's right but remember the part of this was I. Don't think that the NFL and employed white really expected that he was going to accept the petition. I think this was a PR stud. They I said told him on. Tuesday doc You could do it on Saturday. why Saturday bad Saturday's bad because most of the scouts are already made arrangements to go to college games and Dan most of the head coaches are obviously preparing for Sunday or traveling? So that's a Saturday makes very little sense in fact we had suggested doing it. Not this Saturday today. If you're listening to the first thing we dropped but waiting until Tuesday which is the best way to do it which is traditional when you bring somebody plus plus I know that at least three GBS have already said they were. They were told in advance that this was happening. And had they thought it was kind of a used the expression before a dog and pony show and if they wanted they they'll call him at work about so this is is yes. This is densely what they'll do on a Friday drop dump some news on a Friday evening in front front of a three day weekend or something right like what they do. They just pick a pick a time when they know people won't be paying attention or whatever I mean it's strategic doing doing it on Saturday or dumping some news some bad news on a Friday night before three day weekend. It's strategic right. It's exactly right I. I tried to remain very optimistic. Because I lo he wants to play and I want to play because that's what he wants so I'm not going to do We've together together by Theory as to what's really going on but we'll wait and see I think he'll go out there. I think he's going to accede anyone's expectations and I think what's he does that if he's not signing them that's going to clearly prove collusion once again last question then what was round onto garages versus the NFL. I wasn't aware of what was coming up. Yeah well that's wait until next week. Really how big a bomb shells is going to be. We'll see we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens played by your but the NFL. We'll just I obviously can't talk about things but what I'm saying is is I thought camp in the NFL had settled. Stop and each party had gone.

"News in the house as Kevin McCarthy is named as minority leader. He is now the top House Republican albeit in the minority in a vote of one fifty nine to forty three. So the congressman from California. Is he apparently from some of the reports one of the things that the president has apparently made clear to congressman McCarthy is that he wants Jim Jordan to be the top Republican in the judiciary committee Anat is that's one of the that's one of the things that's kind of as everyone sort of get settled in the house, and in the Senate that seems to be where things are falling. Welcome to the second hour of the program. I'm Dana lash that seems to be where everything is falling. So Kevin McCarthy is elected house minority leader by a vote of one fifty nine to forty three over congressman Jim Jordan who was running against him. And the president is from what has been reported is pushing to have Jim Jordan. As to have Jim Jordan in the on. The judiciary committee is the top Republican and the judiciary committee. So that'll be very interesting to see is. An and I think that the way that this has been characterized. So I look at this headline from politico past just media Savimbi such idiots. The headline is and it has three people Trump metals and McCarthy Jordan leadership role. Why don't know that it's ever been considered a brawl number one? Definitely I wanna talk a brawl. Let's talk about are. You have newly elected Representative Akashi Cortes who literally had a protest anything Pelosi's office. So if you want to have a discussion as to what is or is not a brawl all then there's your example. But the they what a lot of Trump's surrogates have been saying that they want to see Jim Jordan is the ranking member on the judiciary committee and McCarthy, though, doesn't really have that authority that goes back to the Republican steering committee. And apparently, they don't really like Jordan. So I don't know what that's gonna I don't know what that's gonna what that's going to do. But it. It should be very it's going to be interesting to see after everything is done in. Everyone is situated where people are ending up. So will say, but that is just the latest as all of these newly elected folks make their way in Washington DC and get on committees and get elected here and there, but so Kevin McCarthy will be the house minority leader. So he'll be up against Nancy Pelosi, both from California. It's kind of weird, isn't it? I'm aware both the majority and minority leader both got away from California, low weird isn't what it is is. I don't know. I just wonder if that I don't know it's it is a little kind of weird to me. I think I don't know. But but that is that is the latest as to what is happening right now with everything going on in the house. So we're follow. We're following the goofy. With CNN. Fox's also now signed on to blah, blah, blah. Jim. I'm already done talking about him. If I have to talk about him anymore. I'm gonna rip my hair out. I cannot stand this guy being constantly the news. I just can't. And then of course, you have senators who say, well, we gotta have investigations and Democrats in the house saying we gotta have investigations as though that's not what the hell you people been doing for the past two years. What have you been doing for the past two years for crying out loud? Even under the previous administration, y'all were doing this. And guess what no matter how badly you. Try to cheat. No matter how badly you. Lied to a FIS the court, no matter how badly you compromise people's fourth amendment rights and everything else you still could not come up with anything after two plus years of lying and cheating and dragging the bottom of the barrel to try to figure out something just something to come up with. And so far the only thing that they've done is be able to get what a couple people. Some technicalities. Are you actually are they going to actually do anything in the house? Are they going to actually try to pass anything? Or is it just? You know, is it just samil-sam. Oh. They're just not Trump. Anyway. I we're going to hear about that. So much one of the good things about I guess, you could say if you wanted to interpret it as such as Democrats controlling the house, and as people are going to get so aggravated they they're not gonna be able to they they're not gonna be able to wait to vote against these people coming up in two thousand twenty. So one of the I saw this the story and Tucker Carlson who I've known for years. He's got kids. Remember when we were talking about how that mob of people the smash racism people who apparently hate Hispanics when they went to his house and broke his door and did all of this stuff and freak out his wife who hidden the pantry. So they got kicked off Twitter after they organized on Twitter while now apparently they're back on Twitter the mob. They created a new account. It was smash raises NBC now, it's the same profile picture Saint people. It's just DC against racism now. So I don't know. I don't know what goes into making sure people can't reopen their accounts. But you know, maybe that one could be suspended. Also, I was also who was it porn lawyer. What's his face? Yes. Thank you. I only know his porn lawyer. I he's been trying so desperately to squirm back into the headlines. And there was that story where? The guy and this was over the weekend where Carlson was at Virginia's Farmington country club and his daughter. His teenage daughter went to the bathroom. And when she came back. Somebody said are you with Tucker are you sitting with Tucker Carlson, and she answered that's my dad and the man responded are you whore? And then called her a blinking. See you next Tuesday. And the daughter was all upset we talked about this once and then the son who is a student went into the bar to confront the man he followed and then apparently the sun through what wine in his face or something or water or something in his face and avenue was saying how dare you do this because he's a what was he? He's a gay Latino immigrant, and I don't know how many other boxes you can check. He's gay Latino immigrant who is allergic to gluten. Vegan vegan Latino gluten-free immigrant. What else is there? Something else. I can throw in there to make him seem super super victimized because he called an underage girl of CNN Tuesday. Which totally you know, is not like what a cross disgusting pervert would do at all. But and then apparently your e Tucker Carlson, poor lawyer suggested that he was supposed to know that the guy was a gay Latino immigrant who may or may not be vegan or gluten free or something. Whatever I don't know. Is there something else? Second. And I just think that the porn lawyer needs to be quiet because. The guys lucky. He did not get his backside warped. He's just like he he didn't get his backside. But I think it's hysterical. That will I can't believe that. You would how dare you do this? How dare you do this? Do this gay Latino immigrant vegan gluten free person? I feel like I need more things to check have you noticed that whenever somebody wants to be super victimized there. There's more. There are more qualifiers. Yeah. With allergies with cyanide as sinusitis. Yeah. I mean, just how how much can I go but the sun? Yeah. The sun apparently through glass of wine and the guy's face and porn lawyers. Like, I'm gonna come after you and your little dog too. And I don't know the guys just desperately grabbing for some sort of relevancy. I just he everything that man touched fell to crap and he wants to run for the White House porn lawyer wants to run for the White House is not what it was. Gross making disgusting awful again that would be his or more awful. I don't know that would be that would be his his slogan. So the. Yeah. I those people are the the mob is the mob is back. So they were back on social media. There are a lot of questions people are asking about social media, and whether what can be done to police them in what can be done to. I think that comes down to the tech people. They've I mean, the people who own the companies have to make sure that their services or something at are enjoyable to use if they want to main they wanna retain any kind of an audience or any kind of user base, but these pedia they gotta have their account suspended. Right. Quick. Right. Quick. So and speaking of the angry mob. I'm always amazed. Because I was having a genuine conversation are trying to, but nobody is interested in having a genuine conversation. I was talking about the latest development in the Jamal Roberson case, which we're gonna talk about here coming up, and it's amazing to me how nobody all these people who claim that they are so concerned about 'innocent life or they are they're so concerned about innocent alive for they want solutions. They're actually not interested in. In talking about solutions. They just want to be bought hats on social media and contribute further to incitement and divisiveness. I don't take for at all any of these individuals. I don't take them seriously at all because they are not interested in any kind of good faith conversation. So I I'll give you the latest update on that story coming up at the bottom of the hour because there are some developments in it. But you know, everybody nobody can have a legitimate conversation because everyone jerk reactions based on speculation. And I don't know. It's just amazing to me that people don't understand. That's not how the world should work. So we'll get into that as well here coming up, and then we got Florida man coming down the line, which.

"It was something that we would discuss on a regular basis mainly with nervous, banter locker room. Banter conversations in a locker room are a lot different than. Allegations of abuse are reported abuse to hold up hold up. So they basically told Jordan about the abuse and he didn't think it counted because they way on the locker room. Like, what is it with these guys in locker rooms. It just feels like nothing you say matters in there like, you know what I feel like I'm going to do. I'm just going to start carrying locker room around with me. Yeah, then I can say whatever I want. Let's be in the streets like the police and they'll be like, what did you say like locker room locker room. Believe it or not believe it or not. A lot of House Republicans are standing behind Jim Jordan. Maybe maybe it's because they've already seen much worse back in the two, thousands, a man named Dennis Hastert's was the Republican House speaker, and he later admitted to molesting children when he was a wrestling coach and he was convicted for paying hush money to cover it up. So at the very worst, Jim Jordan is an upgrade from that. And frankly, I think that's what he should run on. Dennis Hastert was an admitted pedophile. He abused multiple young boys and tried to hide his horrific actions with payoffs. Jim Jordan is only accused of enabling sexual abuse and the victims were children. He is the progress we need, Jim Jordan, not as bad as a pedophile. Right back. My guest tonight is a professor at Stanford University who served as u. s. ambassador to Russia under President Obama. His latest book is called from Cold War too hot piece, an American ambassador in Putin's. Russia, please welcome ambassador, Michael. McFaul..

"The jim jordan scandal which we have not talked about yet so i who is jim jordan he's a congressman from ohio who's one of the founders of the house freedom caucus he's also one of the most enthusiastic peddlers of conspiracy theories that there's a deep state plot to take down president trump today he's being accused of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse that's alleged to have occurred at state when he was an assistant wrestling coach there in the eighties nineties eight former ohio state wrestlers came forward recently alleging that a former trainer there richard strauss molested them and the jordan new and said nothing one wrestler said that strauss who committed suicide in two thousand and five could have molested thousands of students one of the former athletes said that he told jordan about the alleged abuse directly the head coach who jordan worked for ross heloc sin is on video saying that he confront stress about it and told the administration dan the people who were there the wrestlers the other coaches are all saying that jordan knew what are the chances that all of them are lying about this i would say it is the chances are just about as good as nineteen women who don't know each other all coming up with similar stories about being sexually assaulted by donald trump of like of course right of course and it like we don't know everything but we we should believe the victims and it should be investigated and jim jordan has been caught in a lie on this all ready because he i he said he did not know and then he slipped up in an interview with brett baer for he he he made it pretty clear that it had been that there was something different between things that were said to in a locker room in formal complaints about active behavior like this and so after saying he had he had he had never heard anything that he then implied he had heard something about it but not enough that would make him actually report it and so it's pretty clear he's lying he also is a long history of being a liar and so i don't know why the entire republican party and frankly a lot of the media are giving him the benefit of the doubt here benefit of the doubt they have they did have not given other politicians in similar situations who've been involved in sexual sexual abuse scandals the pushback by jordan and his allies to the story given air to a conspiracy theory that the allegations are nothing more than a plot to protect fbi agent peter struck the guy jordan others have accused of trying to undermine the investigation into hillary clinton's email server and poisoning the muller probe with political bias what do you think about this especially in light of the fact that as we're recording this schroeck is in testifying before congress now and you know we've got trey goudy and goodlatte looking like complete idiots as there as they're questioning stroke and trying to and trying to undermine the molar investigation via these ridiculous tech john are you asking me if i don't find it credible that a half dozen or so high oh state wrestlers all came together to who to decide they were huge fans of peter struck and wanted to protect came together to concoct a story protect them no i do not i do not find that credible i have a credible and it's fucking embarrassing that this is actually the mainstream view of the republican party right now like mainstream this is what jim jordan matt gaetz of these other nutcases are saying but to hear other members that are hoboken party saying that's not true like even if you are you can very fairly give jim jordan the benefit of the doubt here a benefit of doubt i would remind you that jim jordan has given no one in his fucking life right not hillary clinton not peter struck not rod rosenstein not any other individual live today but if you want to be a better person to give him benefit of the doubt and say we have to get the bomb that's fine but to allow this idea to end it's worth thinking about these are victims of sexual abuse and then you have the republican party attacking them in accusing them of being part of eight thoroughly absurd but nefarious government conspiracy to protect an fbi agent that is insane in it's disgusting yet and our two party system we have insane and disgusting party playing the role of one.
