"August you testified at your deposition that you met with Kurt Volker of Lee was in August twentieth the whole answers systems was still in place you testified that investor Voelker told you that he could get so let's see to make a public statement quote that would somehow disavow any interference in US elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individuals involved elections difference it might lift the hold on security assistance is that correct Sir I believe that I'd testified that it was might inference that that would lift the hold on Ukraine security assistance and that was your inference because at the time you were talking about the hold on security systems that's correct the first part of our conversation was about the hold on security assistance and it was during that portion of the conversation that he brought up the effort to get this public statement it was during that conversation I'm not sure I would say it's during that part of the conversation what else did you discuss in the conversation the only two topics that I recall are the urgency of lifting the the hold on security assistance and then him relaying this separate diplomatic effort that I had previously been unaware of you so you don't have any discussion about any White House meeting Sir I don't recall specifically talking about the White House meeting but we I've had many conversations about the desire for the White House meeting so it's likely that that was a part of the conversation but the two things you do recall are they talked about the hold on security systems and that he brought up this public statement that they want insolence you to get that he thought might be useful that is correct Sir Mr newness the other is this reckless thank you John for yielding ambassador hailed as Cooper thank you both for being here it is opening ranking member Nunez reference president trump's general skepticism of providing eight in the amount of foreign aid being provided to foreign countries a would you agree with that characterization master how we've all often heard at the state department that the president added states wants to make sure that our foreign assistance is reviewed scrupulously make sure the sin trillion US national interests that we evaluated continuously to that meet certain criteria that the president's established in since his election is it fair to say the president trump has looked to overhaul how foreign aid is distributed yes the honesty launched a form of assistance review process sometime I think it was late August early September twenty eighteen nine and throughout both his campaign is ministration president trump has repeatedly sought to reframe re frame American foreign policy in economic terms and as he described America first policy inconsistent with that well before there was a whistle blower talking about a pause on aid to Ukraine the president had expressed genuine concern about providing US foreign assistance at that point is it.

Impeachment hearings: Tuesday was a disaster for Republicans
"Impeachment proceedings against President trump were a doubleheader today with hearings both this morning starting at nine. Am Eastern and men another marathon hearing this afternoon starting at three o'clock eastern extending well into the evening tonight ending less than a half an hour ago. Now the the second hearing today the afternoon and evening session that just ended was tactically a first though because the two witnesses were called specifically in the impeachment hearing this afternoon were the first witnesses who were specifically requested by the Republicans on the committee. Now we don't know exactly why hi. The Republicans on the committee were so eager to call these particular witnesses today. It kind of seems clear from how it went with them today that the Democrats would have been just as is happy to call them to if the Republicans hadn't but this is specifically who the Republicans wanted and it seems like it's probably Lee not the way they had wanted it to go does not credible to me. That former vice president biden would have been influenced in any way by financial or personal motives in carrying out his duties as vice president. I don't think that raising twenty sixteen elections or vice president and Biden or these these things I consider to be conspiracy theories that have been circulated by the Ukrainians particularly the former prosecutor. General are are we there not things that we should be pursuing as part of our national security strategy with Ukraine at the one in person meeting I had with Mayor Giuliani on July. Nineteenth mayor. Giuliani raised and I rejected the conspiracy. Theory that Vice President Biden would have been influenced in his duties as vice president by money. Money paid to his son as previously testified. I have known vice. President Biden for twenty. Four years is an honorable man and I hold them in the highest regard embassador Kurt Volker who resigned as U S envoy to Ukraine when the impeachment scandal broke. Open a few weeks ago. He was asked to testify testify before these proceedings. He accepted that invitation to testify and he resigned his job What that means though? Because he was the first witness they asked to come in and give a closed-door deposition that tells you that the Democratic leadership of the impeachment committees were happy to hear from Ambassador Volker as a witness in the first instance. I'm I can surmise. That the Democratic leadership of those committees would have been happy calling him again for this public testimony of the type that he went through today that said he was specifically requested Republican witness the Republicans on the committee specifically wanted Ambassador Volker and to Morrison who he testified alongside alongside today. I'm not exactly sure why. The Republican members of the committee were so psyched to have him there today specifically as their witness but there he was it was ambassador Volker and as I mentioned a senior national security official who also recently resigned his post. The man he testified alongside is named Tim Morrison Morrison Morrison on Volcker are the witnesses the Republicans wanted to make sure got their turn before the cameras in these televised hearings but whatever the Republicans motivation was for that honestly. Their testimony wasn't awesome for the President's defense. Not at all quite the contrary now after this larger meeting with the vice president pence presidents Alinsky testified at your deposition that you saw ambassador John Lennon immediately. Go over and pull Andre Earmark aside and have a conversation as president Zone Linski left the room vice president pence left the room and in sort of an anteroom Bashur Samland and presidential adviser. Your had this discussion. Yes Bachelor Sunland Sadie. Tell you that he told Mr Yearbook that the Ukrainians would have to have the prosecutor. Ask You your general Make a statement with respect to the investigations as a condition of having the eight lifted. Now did you tell Ambassador Bolton about this conversation version as well. I reached out to him as well and requested his availability for a secure phone call and what was his response when you explain to him what ambassador Sunland had said. Tell the lawyers now. A few days later on September seventh you spoke again to Ambassador Sunland. Who told you that he had just gotten off the phone with President? Trump isn't that right. That sounds great. Yes what did ambassador Sunlen tell you that. President Trump said to him. If I were called this conversation correctly this was where On related that there was no quid pro quo by presence. Alinsky had to make the statement and that he had to wants wants to do it year by that point. Did you understand that. The statement related to the Biden in a two thousand sixteen investigations. I did yes. And that was a a essentially a condition for the security assistance to be released. I I understood that. That's what embassador sauna believed after speaking with President Trump. That's what he represented. Did you tell Ambassador Bolton about this conversation as well I did. Yes and what did he say to you. He said to tell the lawyers once again what I call them the second time for something like this once again. He told me tell the lawyers do. Do we need a theme song for today. How about tell the lawyers fire up the embroidery hoops day? Three three of the trump impeachment hearings had provided us with yet another set of words to live by words to stitch onto a pillow. At least words words to watch out for in testimony about how the president's own appointees talk to each other when they learned about what the president had been cooking up behind closed doors to don't even tell me talk to the lawyers dude. Are you calling me about another one of these. I said talk to the lawyers. Do you have the lawyer so number. Can you get to the lawyer's office.
Volker at impeachment hearing: 'I did not know of any linkage'
"Former US envoy to Ukraine ambassador Kurt Volker told the house intelligence committee he was never part of any effort to pressure Ukraine into investigations to help president trump in exchange for military aid I did not know of any linkage to White House officials told a democratic led committee earlier in the day they were concerned when the president brought it up in his July twenty fifth call with Ukraine another former White House aide said he wasn't concerned anything illegal was discussed and top committee Republican Devin newness sees no evidence of wrongdoing it's obvious the Democrats are trying to topple the president so we because they despise there's more public hearings on Wednesday and Thursday this is the US state radio news
Major Takeaways From Tuesday's Impeachment Hearings
"Today was a big day for the public hearings on the impeachment. Investigation number of trump administration administration officials did testify. One of those officials. Was Kurt. Volker who is no longer a trump administration official but he was formally The special envoy in Ukraine now his testimony publicly apparently is different from what he said privately. So let me give you the details IOS according to Various sources The week writes in his original closed door testimony when asked if there was any talk of investigating the Biden's in July ten and meeting with Ukrainian defence leader Volker repeatedly answered no but when appearing publicly before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday Volker reverse that statement on Tuesday Volker acknowledged that Gordon Psalm land the US ambassador to the EU brought up the investigations and that he found it inappropriate in fact in the next clip. That you're about to watch. He discusses what he really feels about the demand for the Biden investigations nations. This references the conversation. I had with Mr Giuliani as well where I think. The the allegations against Vice President Biden ourselves serving bringing and not credible so the fact that he says that it self serving is important because one of the trump defenses that we commonly hear from Republicans is it. What's the big deal? Quid pro quo. We do it all the time right. I mean we do. We make these deals with foreign leaders. Yeah you make the deals with foreign leaders in in an effort to do what's in the best interest of America overall. Not what's in the best interest of the president or his political campaign which was the case with Donald Trump trump or the very least in the best interests of the American military industrial complex but not for individual politicians Yeah and it also undercuts. I I know that a lot of right wingers had been expecting that he might sort of come up hint that well you know there were concerns about Biden at the time. Like that's that's one of the main like one of the main three. I guess defenses if the trump was that obviously issues of Biden and his family and so you cannot say that it was weird to bring it up but he's pointing out that no the people in the meeting knew that there was no legitimate reason talking about investigation by that time and in previous testimony We learned that the investigation into the Biden's makes no sense because the accusation Asian by trump is that Biden wanted to get rid of a prosecutor in Ukraine who was investigating Burris MMA but now we have multiple support people who are part of trump's administration. Saying no that prosecutor who got fired first of all the international community wanted him to get fired because the investigation was a stagnant and that particular prosecutor was corrupt. And so you say that. And it's so simple so easy understand but even that very easy to under the understanding in like three months that this scandal has been in the public like attention. You can't accept that. No I still think no no by Biden project to them so I get your perspective and you're right you're definitely right but also at the same time like this is why the giant conflict of interest of having Hunter Hunter Hunter Biden. Serve on. That board is coming back to bite. Biden You know because you really shouldn't have been on that board. Let's keep it real honest about that. Might China have a big conversation where we finally take stock of the fact. That nepotism is a huge thing in American politics and American business in America entertainment and music and the media and all of that and we we strip all those people that positions that make them actually earn what they get. Ben Sure we get rid of Hunter Biden in you. Know Jared Kushner doesn't have his job and you get the trump's aren't running the trump organization Shen and Meghan McCain's off the view and everything. I think we can totally have that conversation. It's probably long overdue. But that is not what Donald Trump was trying to do. It is so disingenuous of the right to pretend that that trump actually cared about hunter by not insofar as hurts the credibility of Biden an election but because Hunter Biden being on that board means well. That's really hurting the energy sector of Ukraine. I won't stand for it. No Look I. One hundred percent agree with you and think about Donald Trump and the nepotism within his own administration. I mean two of his top advisors are family members who have absolutely no business serving in the White House or in any form of government for that matter. Yeah so One other quote from volkers testimony that I wanNA share with you. He said quote. I participated in on the July ten meeting between National Security Adviser Bolton and then Ukrainian chairman of the National Security and Defense Council. Alex Danube Daniel loop. Who has the best name I love? Because as a reminder The meeting was essentially over when ambassador. Gordon solid again. Gordon Sahlin keeps coming coming up Made a generic comment about investigations. I think all of us thought it was inappropriate. The conversation did not continue and the meeting concluded. Yeah so can I just talk briefly about So Volker his what he just said a little bit different in some substantive ways from what you said earlier silent was the earlier version of that he originally originally said no quid pro quo totally not. And he's like sorry I meant quid pro quo. It's easy to get this to mix up and you know why the reason why changes testimony is because his testimony conflicted did a great deal from the testimony given by other trump administration officials exactly in. So that's what's really interesting about. The Republicans didn't want the closed door hearings. They also coincidentally don't want the public ones but they didn't want the private ones but the thing that the private ones brought was they had multiple people come in talk about what they knew and then when stuff started to come out from it some of them started to realize like oh it's gonna be really hard to sustain what I told them or best case scenario some of them their memories jogged or whatever and so now they're story is changing especially when they have apparently come to the understanding that they work for a guy that would love to throw them under a bus and they. They don't want to be the person who goes down for this Gordon San's like this was just fun man. I just spent a million dollars. I thought it'd be cool to be ambassador for a few years. I don't WanNa go to jail for Donald Trump. And so if Gordon Gordon Sunland tells the truth or at the very least avoids going to jail for perjury or something like that. Then at the very least from his point of view it passes the buck to Rudy Giuliani. Who can go to jail right? And I think that it is honestly given what we've heard 'cause look we know that investigations into trump don't necessarily work out out the way that you would expect them to. Even if there's overwhelming evidence you know the obstruction of justice outlined in the report is just so clear but all the people surrounding funding Donald Trump who engaged in any type of criminal activity paid the consequences. So if I had to take a bet on. The fate of Rudy Giuliani Donald. Trump's personal lawyer. He's in a lot of trouble. And trump will throw him under a bus as soon as it's convenient for him to do so.

"Gordon Sunland and Rick Perry and anyway. That's how we know him. He was one of the original liars. Yeah one of the lawyers said. Is he a star Trek Alien. Oh remember that no. I tried to block that out. Okay because I want to keep I wanNA have respect for yourself. Okay so with this his public testimony he came through and had like a couple pull things he amended which was a little bit interesting. His original testimony was that during a July tenth meeting with Ukrainians at the White House investigations. Instigations were not raised. He said I never. I don't know anything about something about investigations. But now according to his opening statement he has come to remember that US S. ambassador. Gordon Sunland did raise the topic and he also remembered that quote. All of us at the meeting found son's behavior quote inappropriate but he was also so you know throughout I mean he also made some changes about his testimony about demands to investigate the Biden's and demands to investigate charisma. Were two separate things. But then Tuesday he said today he said that while he recalled that Giuliani and others were demanding investigations into the gas company. On whose was board One Hundred Biden set. Volker failed to connect an investigation into corruption. Allegations at SMA with a politically motivated attack on the Biden's so he's not really doing much explosive stuff. I mean the the amendments he did make show that he's a little less willing to just outright lie and then finally he was. I saying he's like I just Wanna I say like I I just the reference to the three Amigos like it's just sickening to him Because the three Amigos will always refer to Senator John McCain Senator under Joe Lieberman and Senator Lindsey Graham talking about the support of the surge in Iraq would reduce okay so anyway yeah not a lot there. I mean him into Morrison. Everyone's he's GonNa be like they're not GonNa really do much here to to blow the lid off of any of the White House talking points but ran the little little shreds still say no shady a little bit there were shady things is going on whereas in the past. He was more In in lockstep with his buddies trying to thing where he doesn't WanNa say shady so what's like two degrees back from shady cloudy with a chance of shade I don't know so what is the USS Enterprise. Joe Boy Can you call his doctor. You Say United Shush earlier up next is something thing. I have no idea what this is but you you jump on our look at number two trending on twitter potch. I'll go. I know that got to be Maurizio Pacino. The Manager of Oh just the this the Lesser Club in North London in the Barclays primarily Tottenham. Hotspur They have sacked their manager after a string of bad performances and to be completely fair. That sounds like a headline that could describe the situation at Arsenal. So I I was GONNA say so. Leave me alone I get it. We're both in terrible places. However I will always dance on the grave of Tottenham Hotspur what it is okay? I got Arsenal Tatham body. What do you think it is? I think the one thing a lot of people are looking at is because there are a lot of teams in the Premier League that have terrible coaches they're trying to maybe sacked their managers as quickly clearest possible because the market for available managers is like very narrow in terms of the quality roster so some people like even fans like damn they sacked their manager before we could sack ours because they might get a shot at a better manager than we can. There's a finite list of good man. There's only like maybe three or four people who you would trust. I mean with aspirations that Tottenham uh-huh have and the aspirations that arsenal have like we're looking at sort of the same kind of manager. So where would you put football. I think In terms of how much a coach can affect affect the outcome like in American. Yeah Yeah America's Big Three ad say probably football basketball than baseball baseball. You can manage with like a spreadsheet. Yeah I mean no I mean with footy you gotTa have a great manager because part of that is understanding like tactically. What your best setup is how players the best way our cur manager? Amri can't seem to do that if his life depended on it So pretty soon maybe I will be talking about why emory out is trending because because we might be looking at getting rid of our own manager but still. It's really you hate to see Marie. CEO Patrocinio go. The fans liked him. The players really liked him and he still field in win anything Good luck to you sir. So he just got axed despite being popular. That's rare that somebody. A coach remains popular with the fans after after his team starts. They went to the Champions League. Final last season which credit to them Arsenal wasn't even in the champion. So off awfully myself before the fans get to me but but that's a pretty big deal to get to the final but they lost Liverpool ultimately and to be able to just sack him. The next season shows ruthlessness at the Tottenham Board. Yeah and also so I think you know. They're they want to get in the champions. They're not a family like arsenal. Yeah but look my God if if we could do I could do a daily me just crying about arsenal thing. Yeah and the Tottenham fans will also tune into that and we'll we'll win And just in case anybody thinks you are biased in one way or another the beginning of this right up on air dot says Tottenham is scum in all caps. What is it gonNa tell you? Sure what do you think your Shit taught Gnome Aw thank you. That's all right. Yeah one thing. That was trending on twitter. Two Thousand Nine Verse Two Thousand Thousand Nineteen and I. The that makes sense. Is that just tenure gap photos but yeah some people are like look. I'm still working with helicopters but some people are like. Hey I'm adult now and I used to be a kid and that was a big thing on like there is a top trending article on buzzfeed last week like celebrities who looked way different than they did in two thousand nine and it was all all celebrities who are between nineteen and twenty two right and it was all just like this guy he wasn't even a teenager. Yeah you'll even get him now. He's Zad as weird weird. We get this kid. What the globe was real becoming a fucking adult people at the human body changes a lot during that period How do you think we should be tenure get photos ooh how much I've D- aged? Yeah since I made that deal with Satan those right I mean ferrall waiting room as I don't know if I can do with that. Many more exposures of pictures of me in cargo shorts were you were wearing cargo shirts ten years ago where you Oh okay. Well we'll leave that let's actually move onto the real pressing story. Yeah it's it's the big story of the day it is you know how there is that. Show the terrible reference. There is a show the slap well. This is the Fart Fart. NBC's the Far super-producer Jose's here because that was the worst tuck on my phone was the worst part farm. You can make noise. How do you interact with baby? I don't know how it all over him. You legitimately can't do it. Or you can do with their lives like that was legit farting art out. The story is congressman. Eric Swallow. We gotTA play. That was on hardball with Chris Matthews. And just listen to what this is and you tell me what happened is uncontradicted that the president used taxpayer dollars to ask the Ukrainians to help them cheaper electric and indicate how about one more time. Okay just one more time. For the record. Evidence is.

"Run smart helping you run more efficiently this rate binders number one goal last name McNamara over there Harley no thank you very much Tamara currently thank you in other news the impeachment hearings start up again today new developments this from fox yesterday yeah this is this is really the most interesting story forget about Kurt Volker gonna change his his the testimony and claimed he wasn't in the loop what survivor aren't even aware that were that takes you right I don't see that that being you know ground breaking and then you have the you know the David Hale who was state department's number three official who I testified in a closed door deposition that no one in the trump administration or any other government channel ever mention former vice president Joe Biden or son hunter as a reason for withholding aid from Ukraine he's going to be testifying but this is represented Lee Zelda who set up the headline is upcoming impeachment hearings should be postponed due to new development he called for a delay I'm till those transcripts are publicly available he said a lot of people didn't realize that once the cameras ended on Friday we then went back to this give room in the basement capital where there was a closed door deposition David Holmes assistant to ambassador bill Taylor and office of management and budget official mark sandy testified before Congress over the weekend in separate closed door depositions following last week's highly contentious public hearings according to Zeldin this is sandy went right to the heart of why there was a hold on aid in Ukraine during his Saturday deposition and called for release of the transcripts containing sandy's statement in time for week two of the public hearings a great answer given a very informative answer by mark Zandi Seldon said and I think it would change some of the answers given by some of these other witnesses this week what do you say well well well many the transcripts from last week's hearing both public and private remain unavailable at this time much of Sheldon's questioning for the upcoming hearings revolve around the new information and he explained the deposition rules prevent him from referencing the substance of those interviews in public until the transcripts are released I believe that we should not go forward with the next open public hearing until the rest of these transcripts are out because I have questions to ask these witnesses all based off of what we have heard so what he's saying is we've got testimony that we've heard and this adds to the whole impeachment narrative we've all heard the testimony these witnesses come into public hearing we have new information and we have a public hearing later on today and then tomorrow and we can't ask anything in regards to those depositions to those witnesses yet it's information that we already have he again I believe we should not go forward with the next open public hearing into the rest of these transcripts are out because I've questions to ask these witnesses based off of what we have heard you still have those several transcripts including both David Holmes and mark Zandi that have not been released to the public I believe that we should not go forward with the next open public hearing until the rest of those transcripts are out because I would have to question I would have questions to ask those witnesses come Tuesday morning based off of what we have heard asked whether he found it likely the transcripts remade public Zelda so that was up to Adam Schiff to expedite the public release of those transcripts I don't know if there's the same sense of urgency from chairmanship and his team to get those transcripts done by Tuesday morning if they can get them released by Tuesday morning that's fantastic but if they can't then we'll move the open hearing back a day or two or three because it's going to change some of the answers that some of these witnesses will be giving well now I know I believe part of homes was released in I thought I had the story here on yeah here it is of state department official David Holmes testimony on the newly revealed phone call between president trump ambassador Sunland seems to conflict with the that of the top diplomat bill Taylor in last week's leadoff impeachment hearing Taylor who testified last Wednesday said he had just learned about the phone call last month but homes this time like a time line of events according to a written statement from his clothes store interview seems to depart from Taylor saying he notified Taylor of the call shortly after it was happen so has homes been released they say a written statement is that the is that the testimony being released were written statement they again homes back a Capitol Hill Monday possibly to review his testimony the trunk campaign flag the apparent conflict over the weekend saying both these testimonies cannot be true the testimonies contradict one another regarding when Holmes told Taylor about the call he claims revolver heard trump said in a statement of ohm's immediately told numerous people at the embassy about the phone call repeatedly referred to with meetings and conversations why did Taylor never hear about it from homes or someone else why would have appeared in Taylor's supposedly meticulous notes so there you go but date so it's not the testimony but something was released to have always a hand written thing of the testimony released how can that happen I don't know I don't I can't answer that question but when he said Holmes test wanted not been released I remember that story that the trump administration is already on so this is really interesting now Zelda saying look these people may have to have different and this is amazing these people may have to have different answers then what they're going to give if sandy's testimony is released now office of management and budget official why did they want him to begin with is that because of the money he's the head of the ought yes the the actual money the actual aid yes that's the OMB oversees a they they they account for I don't see anything that came out yesterday as helping the Democrats no no no not at all I don't know that because you get into it doesn't matter whether it's well today we'll hear from Veneman Jennifer Williams and then Kurt Volker right I don't know about Jennifer Williams now colonel Benyamin ms Williams and Mister Morrison also a Timothy Morrison by the way this is also in the afternoon along with Walker colonel Veneman miss Williams and Mister Morrison listened in real time to July phone call between Mr trump and Ukraine's president and so the question is all right then what we already know from Veneman is concerned well he doesn't create foreign policy you can have a concern he can issue that concerns of commander in chief and it stops there because the commander in chief's at foreign policy end of story okay so last and apparently the transcript the between the transcript of of homes was released all right so the corner Wall Street journal some reading right here because I read that story earlier which talks about the fact if he over heard the Sunland from phone call and so it but but still doesn't and it exists all again again it's all hearsay and nobody has direct evidence of the president with a quid pro quo over in like that so it doesn't go anywhere well yes and what I said earlier I still haven't seen anything I read that Wall Street journal story earlier but I just hadn't at first just didn't click in to me was that testimony or is that just is is that the testimony that he gave in the closed door session or is that just other information that it come about so that's actually from his testimony that apparently was released so yesterday late yesterday so right so we do have of that as for David Hale I don't know that that's you know what what is it that he is bringing to the table that Seldon says will change could change everything and and that is a fact of I talked to the president about not releasing the money in this was the specific reason we didn't release the money I talk to this person in the state department I talked to the president about and I talk about and we didn't really some money because the concern of the lava bubble bobble dot because then it gets to the heart of the reason why the money was temporarily right done and so temporarily delayed because that's what you get to that's the person who would be in charge apparently of it I have some authority in the releasing of that money or not releasing of that money right right they would be fully aware all right where that money is and why it hasn't been released so they essentially manage those funds in that regard but here's you know here's the question are we gonna hear that somebody got a directive from the president or somebody at the state department who got a directive from the president in other words if it's if it's a second hand directive that's a little bit different than here set another words if someone got from their superior a directive and and their superior said this comes from the top then that would be different that would be something new my question is why wouldn't that have been leaked right now yeah I'm David Hale the state department's number three official testified in the November six closed door deposition that no one in the trump administration or any government channel ever mention former vice president Joe Biden or sun under as a reason for withholding aid from the Ukraine according to a transcript of his remarks released Monday by the house Democrats in the impeachment inquiry Democrats argue the White House improperly pressured Ukraine to look into the bidens and and the natural gas company we're hunter Biden held a lucrative role despite limited expertise while his father oversaw the Ukrainian policy as vice president remember it happen a month afters father became the point man on Ukraine right when he got hired right the so there you go Hale said he saw the bidens reference only in media reports as well as in specular email from former US ambassador to the Ukraine Maria of your bondage so who testified last week hails scheduled testify publicly on on Wednesday so they're gonna yeah I just I don't I just don't I don't see anything again and by the way it started picking up yesterday the Democrats don't believe in this that had the Democrats believe this going in the opposite direction in fact I saw somebody mentioned that there was one Democrat on Capitol Hill that had said in the hallways that they really don't see this you know going forward they don't see this thing having lex so if that's true you had to Republicans we we brought you the story yesterday to Republicans writing that you know it it's quite possible that it may not happen that a vote on impeachment may not even happen you got a right up the articles of of impeachment and in those articles of impeachment you're gonna have to be specific well I saw mark meadows and others relate to the was the CNN story saying that they're looking to see if trump lied to Mahler yeah right yeah it it it it it in the written and right now answers that he gave right right and it matters to said they're moving on to something else no this is exactly what I saw I thought okay here we go we're gonna leap frog now now we're going backwards this is now we're going back to moments you know I'm it is I think the Supreme Court by the way get the stay to the president and on the decision on his financial records you know based on that investigation from from Capitol Hill until the point that the Supreme Court decides to whether or not to take that case right so that was it at least a a pause button victory for the for the president I'm but do they realize that they've got nothing here like we said last week they're waiting for the president to actually do something wrong so he tweets during your vantage is testimony on Friday well that's you know the intimidation of the of the witness no it's not I'm it's then so by the end of that day that was gone when we get to Monday and Monday it's okay we're gonna go back to Mahler well we had said yes you know I've I've thought about this Friday yet.

Democrats release transcript of Pentagon official's testimony
"Released testimony on a central allegation of the impeachment investigation that president trump withheld military the aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate. Joe Biden Pentagon official revealing what she knew about the decision to freeze the funding and efforts to get Mr Trump to change his mind. More evidence made public less than forty eight hours before historic televised impeachment hearings began. Let's immediately go to our congressional reporter. The Laura Fox Lawrence We now have the testimony of this Pentagon official. Laura Cooper what are we. Learning from the transcript has just been released while Wolf. Learning that Laura Cooper was the deputy assistant secretary of Defense and she really would have been personally involved in what was going on with this military but even she was very concerned. Puzzled told about why this money was being withheld nearly four hundred million dollars in US military assistance of course between the State Department and the Department of Defense and it's very clear here that even she was grappling with congressional investigators behind closed doors to explain how this accord it really underscores wind. Vigils like Mick Mulvaney people who actually had conversations nations with the president and would know what the motives were behind all of this. Why Democrats want to talk to people like moving? Because this was lower cooper's job she handled the defense ends departments portion of this military aid and even she was having a very hard time Wolff explained to congressional investigators what was going on. She basically just said she became came aware of it in July. But there was a lot of concern about whether or not this was even legal because Congress had already appropriated this money wolf. What did she Tell investigators about specific convert con con conversations that she had with embassador Volker for example while she was trying to get to the bottom of why the money was being withheld and she was told by Kurt. Volker that quote an effort was being made that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the government of Ukraine would make that. Would somehow how disavow any interference in the US elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individual involved in election interference. That was about a specific as it got again wolf. It's very clear that behind closed doors. She was having a hard time explaining to congressional investigators. Exactly what happened because even though this was her job this clearly was being kept very retitled around the president of the United States. And his acting. chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney. Glory Interesting Laura Cooper the Deputy Assistant Secretary of defense for Russia Ukraine and Eurasia Asia. Clearly overseeing a lot of this Thanks very much for that Lauren. Fox let's go to a political correspondent. Sara Murray Right now Sarah we have this new testimony the transcript ask him just released as Democrats and Republicans are clearly gearing up for public impeachment hearings on Wednesday. That's right wolf. And obviously we're getting these new details the wall of the broader planning playing out. And I think when you look at this new testimony we get from Laura Cooper really does give us a little bit more sense of what was happening behind the scenes in terms of concerns about this money and whether it was possible to get this aid for Ukraine out the door you know she talks in her testimony about the discussions that were going on in the Defense Department about whether it was evenly goal for and for the president to be holding this money back with it'd already been allocated by Congress you know. She even tells lawmakers at one point that she was there. Were concerns the Defense Defense Department that roughly one hundred million dollars in aid to Ukraine could be at risk so potentially that they wouldn't even be able to get out the door and time and of course we know from our other reporting this is what members of Congress were telling the president privately. They were saying you need to allocate this money. Now you need to get this money out the door otherwise it's not gonNA happen.

Yeah that was the sentence handed down to Ambra geigert yesterday after she was found guilty of murder Geiger made the headlines last year when she entered an apartment she thought was hers and shot and killed both on it turns out. She was in his apartment one floor above above her own Sayyeda. Hussin is a report with K. E. R. A. IN DALLAS. She's been covering this story Good Morning Saito Good Morning. Thank you for having me. We're happy to have you so there was a moment yesterday after the judge handed down Geiger's sentence when John's brother Brandt spoke. Let's listen to that. I love you as a person. I don't wish anything bad on you. I don't know if it's possible but can you please please yes. Can you talk about what it was like to be there. For that extraordinary moment. It was a truly stunning moment in the courtroom a branch John is both John's younger brother. He's eighteen years old and Brandt took the witness stand and as you heard addressed amber geiger directly he told Geiger he forgave her and that he wanted the best for her because that's what his brother both of them would have wanted and he asked Geiger to give her life to Christ Brandt can't then stepped off the witness stand and embraced Geiger gave her a hug a geiger broke into tears and just a moment later the judge herself actually spoke to Geiger hugged her and handed her a Bible so really stunning moments in court. What what was the reaction from people in in the courthouse well while we we have that moment of forgiveness inside outside many folks were upset with this ten year sentence? Many people expected a much harsher sentence for Geiger for for the murder conviction. There was a group of activists gathered outside the courtroom chanting no justice no peace after the sentence was handed down hoaxer saying that this was disrespectful to the family and that ten years doesn't go far enough toward offering both John's life both John's mother Allison John also spoke spoke with the press. She seemed to accept length of the sentence but she says that the work isn't over that ten years in prison is ten years for reflection one and for her to change her life but there is much more to be done by the city of Dallas the corruption that we saw during this process must stop at just briefly seconds we have left.

"The changing nature work fine hello Monday with Jesse hampel on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen house Democrats have told the trump administration shen subpoenas are coming. That's right and the president for his part has continued to lash out as Congress moves forward with its impeachment inquiry I president trump targeted house intelligence eligible committee chairman Adam Schiff by accusing him of treason and then trump took to twitter where he broadened his focus to the Democratic Party. He tweeted that they want to quote steal deal the election. All the while these subpoenas of administration officials are mounting in the first deposition of one of those officials will take place later today. NPR National Political correspondent correspondent Mara Liasson is on the Line Good Morning Good Morning Noel so this story is moving really quickly at points in fits and starts but where do things stand right now with the white ask Congress the White House and Congress are in this epic battle over impeachment yesterday. Both sides were trying to convince the public that they are doing the right thing in the House the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff held a press conference. They wanted to prove that they could walk and Chew Gum at the same time. Nancy Pelosi talked about that the house was getting to yes on the US MCAA. That's the updated Nafta Trade Agreement. She talked about the bill. The House passed in May to reduce drug prices that she wants the Senate and the president to take a look at but they were both very tough about warning the White House what would happen if the White House refused to cooperate operate with their requests for witnesses and documents in the impeachment inquiry. Here's what Adam Schiff had to say. We are concerned that the White House will attempt to stonewall on wall are investigation much as they have stonewalled the other committees in the past It's why I say the White House needs to understand that any action like that that forces us to litigate or have to consider litigation will be considered further evidence of obstruction of justice okay so that is Adam Schiff talking tough president trump is aggrieved. He made that really clear yesterday. He talked about a coup on twitter. He cussed on twitter east his behavior behavior helping shift opinion on whether or not he did something wrong that is not clear yet so far. The polls have shown a little uptick in the support for worthy impeachment inquiry. I wouldn't call it a groundswell yet yesterday. Donald Trump turn to his standard operating procedure whenever he's imperilled only this one was a little higher octane. He said the press was corrupt. As you said he accused the Democrats investigating him of treason that's a capital crime punishable by death. He said Joe Biden was stone-cold crooked. He even suggested that he might bring a major lawsuit to respond to the Muller investigation. That's a little unclear how that would work and the irony is that that this is all a self inflicted wound. He's the one who decided to release the transcript of the call with the president of Ukraine which has fueled the fire of the impeachment inquiry and and instead of just pocketing the victory that Bob Muller gave him and moving on he has obsessively pursued this investigation of the investigators trying trying to prove that the muller probe was a partisan witch hunt and that even his own intelligence and law enforcement community was wrong about Russian involvement in two thousand sixteen gene so he is fueling this fire I mean and at this point Congress looks likely to keep requesting documents and witnesses president trump did say yesterday that he's going to cooperate great. This is a fraudulent crime on the American people but we'll work together. We're shifty shifty Pelosi and all of them and we'll see what happens I mean if we look at how the President has acted in the past does that seem likely cooperation will the president has always tried to appear to be cooperative and fearless like he has nothing to hide and then in the end he doesn't produce information and his White House pretty much has stonewalled Congress in other investigations but on this one they have been turning over documents since they didn't fight to keep the whistle blower complaints secret they did something unprecedented when they release the transcript usually president and foreign leaders conversations are not released to the public doc and that might make it harder for them to withhold other pieces of information and documents that Congress is requesting. NPR's Mara Liasson. Thanks so much all right. The next next move in the inquiry is a closed deposition later today. The man being deposed the diplomat named Kurt Volker Volcker was the US special envoy to Ukraine until hill he resigned last week that was after the whistle blower complaint named him alleging that he connected trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to Ukrainian officials volker is GonNa be the first official to testify on the whistle blower charges fueling the impeachment probe. He'll appear in front of three congressional committees. NPR's Michelle Kellerman has been following all of this and Michelle before we get to who Kurt Volker is I wanNA follow up on something we talked about yesterday. The State Department's Inspector General Plan to hand over some documents to Congress he did did but it was not really what anyone expected. Can you explain what happened there yeah what what they were shown was a a package of documents containing what some described as debunked bunked conspiracy theories about the former. US Ambassador to Ukraine the son of Vice President Joe Biden and others last night on CNN trump's private lawyer Rudy Rudy Giuliani said well he sent over some of those documents to the State Department and and was told that they were going to investigate this and I should say no well that that this kind of smear campaign was certainly getting a lot of play in right wing media at the time so none of this was really a surprise but since Marie Ivanovich the former ambassador was abruptly fired in May hey this provide some context to that and she's one of the people who is expected to speak to the hill committees on this impeachment inquiry and the the man speaking today Kurt Volker. Who is he well? He spent the last couple of years as a part time. US envoy his job was really to push back against Russian AH aggression in Ukraine and end the war and they help end the war in the east of the country. He has a strong background in the region. He was a foreign service officer who worked in President Bush's National Security Council and was Bush's ambassador to NATO at the end of the administration he was also close to the late Senator John McCain and runs the McCain Institute in Washington and the whistle blower complaint says that Volcker did what exactly well. They say that he was helping helping you. The Ukrainian government navigate president trump's demands. You know this was if you think about this year in Ukraine you had a comedian political novice who won elections in Ukraine that surprised a lot of people at the same time you have Rudy Giuliani who has the president's air with all of this effort to dig up dirt about Joe Biden's on looking into the origins of the Miller report. You have a president who's fixated on that and Volker were setting up contacts between the incoming Zilenski government and Giuliani so I think that's what the whistle blower means when they say a that he was trying to help the Ukrainian government navigate president trump's demands and just quickly. What do these congressional committees want to learn from him today? What are they gonNA ask well? They're going to want to know if that's the accurate picture of that's what he was trying to do and also whether he knew about the president's decision to hold up military aid to Ukraine during this time and whether the president was using that aid as leverage to get dirt on his opponent ponant okay so the big question. NPR's Michele Keleman thanks so much Rachelle sure thing.

"Dot com slash ban use code bad okay so why are the house Democrats SO excited because the state department's independent watchdog role to several house and Senate committees request a last minute meeting on Wednesday to discuss and provide staff with copies of documents. according to an invitation reviewed by The New York Times so they're very excited wound what are the documents going to be we don't know yet maybe let me know and we can determine whether in fact there was either a quid pro quo or cover up at this point we do not have evidence of either and said the documents have been given to the inspector general Stephen Winick and the state department's acting legal adviser but did not provide additional information or indicate whether Mister Pompey was aware of the action Mr Lennix office has not responded to because our email seeking comment for two days. the better back and forth according to The New York Times only one week after the house started its impeachment inquiry foreshadowed what could be a consequential fight between the administration and house Democrats they are determined to quickly nailed down facts at the heart of the whistle blower complaint well maybe the whole purpose of the speed is because they know that the executive branch is not going to want to comply that quickly because it's actually kind of complicated to comply with subpoenas from the executive branch of to determine for example what is classified and what is not classified when the president is going to declare executive privilege over and what he is not you have to make sure that everybody gets lawyers so by artificially boosting the timeline perhaps the goal here is for Democrats to actually create exactly the sort of conflict there pretending they wish to avoid. the White House is just as determined to thwart or at least slow the investigation I do love The New York Times language there they're just as in terms of the war or at least slow the investigation which is it smart or slow. when you say that they are determined to slow and that's obvious but port is a different thing falling back on the approach is used to Stonewall efforts by Congress to delve into episodes detail by Robert Muller the special counsel who investigated Russia's interference in the twenty sixteen election okay so we have a few pieces of competing news you have the the Pompeii like knowledge meant that he was in fact on the phone call which doesn't actually mean anything unless there is something wrong with the phone call itself you have the house Democrats who are going to try and subpoena members of Pompeii a state department upon hail saying hold up a second guys you're moving too fast here and the Democrats including cover up and you have the state department's inspector general requesting an urgent briefing with senior congressional staff members after upon help push back and house democratic demands to turn over documents. so we are still wondering exactly what exactly did the only real piece of news that the only real piece of news is not the how bout between how pale and house Democrats that's not really the pump Hale was on the call because the call would be just as criminal or non criminal depending on whether Pompey was there like has presence doesn't change the tenor of the phone call unless the case is somehow not Humm pale was the hatchet man for the quid pro quo that even that doesn't answer the question as to whether there was in fact a quid pro quo. the real piece of news here is that there may be new information that emerged as thanks to this state department inspector general's request one congressional aide described the state inspector general's request is highly unusual and critically worded. inspector general again said the reason for the briefing was that they had obtained documents from acting legal adviser in the state department but as I say you know all this talk about the trump administration preventing members of the trump administration from testifying not so much the former US special envoy to crank or vulgar is set to appear on Thursday and Kurt Volker is the one who allegedly was texting with Rudy Giuliani so gonna find out some more information there was he texting with guiliani because the trump administration in efforts to procure the quid pro quo had deputized guiliani from the state department in order to go over there and dig up dirt with Ukrainian government or was Kurt Volker basically just a guy in Ukraine who knew who is working for the government knew originally on actually on a call them up and said I'd like to talk to actions that okay his phone number about to find that out meanwhile Tuesday the testimony of former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Jana and get out of it Iman image which had been scheduled for Wednesday is now going to occur next Friday so again they keep saying it's a cover up she did well the week in a half that's not a cover up. three committees the house foreign affairs intelligence an oversight panels have scheduled the depositions. as part of their probe into whether the president's solicited help from a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political opponents in again that remains the central issue but we are not seeing any additional information as of yet that suggests that the quid pro quo I never took place well that was even threatened remember last week when covered three separate stories and suggested that the Ukrainian government didn't even know that military aid was on the line and even the aspects of the transcript that look like they're dealing with military aid are you have is a one ski team president of Ukraine talking about buying javelin missiles. yeah I was informed by somebody in in the defense arena shall we say that even that has nothing to do with the so called quid pro quo with regard to military aid that had to do it so once you trying to butter from up by saying he wanted by javelins meaning that actually the entire college just once you trying to better trump up. as for leaders are constantly trying to butter the president op it doesn't mean that the president was actually threatening meanwhile the house is threatening to subpoena the White House for Ukraine's records on Wednesday the house threatened to subpoena the White House if it did not comply by Friday with request for a broad range of documents relating to president trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating and Joe Biden and his son again there's the word pressure again representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland the chairman of the oversight and reform committee notified his committee of the impending subpoena on Wednesday he said the White House and thus far ignored Congress is voluntary request you said I do not take this step lightly over the past several weeks the committee's tried several times to attain a voluntary compliance with a request for documents. so yeah again and that this seems like thus far overblown Democrats trying to accelerate the timeline specifically said the White House will block the time line. incoming is threatening a subpoena is obviously an escalation along these lines the subpoena threat comes as house democratic leaders are preparing to out steps in the rapidly unfolding impeachment inquiry and we'll find out what state department inspector general is about to say as of today. in just a second ring get to president trump's response to all this plus Bernie Sanders hospitalized but first Democrats are constantly seeking to screw with your health care why well because they want control over you they want to determine what kind of care you can receive and what price well they're trying to price controls on American businesses now and they want to hit them with a one hundred billion dollar tax hike this would set medical research back decades leading to massive medicine shortages destroying countless good paying jobs you need a profit incentive to keep people doing the research and development necessary to keep Americans healthy thankfully my friends over three months are fighting to.
