"Behind my back just to make it fair so the drive by media interviewing all of these voters in New Hampshire supposedly hand picked randomly chosen but there is a part of the purpose is to create this impression that it's over for trump that it's over for any Republican whenever there's a democratic primary going on what they find is primary voters make that these are the smartest these are independent states are centrist is are people waiting your shoes it's all a game and yet everybody in this game plays this game like it's all the jet black it's not structured like there's not an outcome like it is indeed all random and it isn't it took me the longest time well it didn't take me that long I've had this figured out about twenty years and if you are it really helps to be a non conformist having a non conformist can be a lonely existence and god love not got a conformist we need conformists if there weren't conformists wiry we wouldn't have socialism in Cuba if we if we didn't have conformists we wouldn't have people willing to work in a tort tarian corporate structures they give you another example I mentioned lieutenant colonels Benjamin holes and you'll see earlier the conventional wisdom is that here's a guy wearing his army medals decorated in the little security council staff but one was terribly upset over what he thought he heard in a phone call between president trump insulin's game you're quitting was so distressed and was sold porn sold sold what this meant for American national security that he had to do something and what he had to do was to help put in motion the eventual impeachment of Donald Trump and so it became you couldn't criticize colonel Vinland remember couldn't criticize anybody wearing the uniform no no no don't you dare never mind they could destroy David Petraeus all day long they can destroy Michael Flynn all day long we talk about lieutenant colonel vin so trump comes along finally and fires Vendramin and fires Veneman's brother and fires all these people boarding Simon all these people have participated in the car which is what it was and so here comes the conformist reaction all these horrible Donald Trump should not be able to retaliate this way this is absolutely reprehensible is a sober need we can't have was towards anymore if there's going to be retaliation all the conformist view is when ever there is criticism Republican presidential jet we got a stint there we got a deal with it we got to take it and even what is shown to be bogus and filled with lies we can't take retribution reciprocity and deal with the person who got the ball rolling what sorry not my world not a time when I think you heard in this whole story Obama expanded the National Security Council staff to over two hundred and thirty people you know the National Security Council staff is that's a personal staff to the president they are in the White House complex they are in the west wing and the old executive office building complex and they are direct employees of the president George W. bush ran the Iraq war in the war on terror with a hundred numbers on that Obama expands it blows it up to two hundred and thirty with people like the Veneman's and Eric Charlotte Mellor who is this pajama boy whistle blower and people like Sean missed call who winds up going to work first pencil neck chef and then you remember how Obama multiply the number of federal agencies who had access classified data I think what this actually what I think as as Obama was leaving office he expanded the National Security Council staff and then in a large to the number of agencies that had access to whatever classified data they did so that he planted moles this is where they planted the moles this is where they planted the the malls all over the NSC the Veneman twins for you on the hill whistle blower Abigail grace who left the NSC shortly after the trump phone call she went to work for ships so the job so John miss go every one of these people is an Obama hold over and I remember and why in the hell are they still there why didn't trump clean house and reduce this number back down to seventy five to a hundred people who were working for him I don't know the answer but my guess would be that he had people advising him not to do it it's very important that was something good Obama do Mister president so we night take advantage of it but I think that's where all of this came from I made for the trunk Russia collusion I thank all of this into the when the FBI and and that element of a true but the inside trump administration malls the turn because whatever you wanna call of their Obama appointees that had jobs expanded as Obama was leaving office for the express purpose of protecting Obama's achievements and sabotaging whoever was to come next in this case he makes it look easy rush on the keep up with your world he's use radio seven four K.

Like he's being able to cross cam in the post as not not shout out in the middle of testimony and you need to call balls instruct the right way. You don't interrupt one of your your Kushner witness the donor I the gentleman will continue. Sir Sir I believe it was your testimony is I wrote it down. The Democrats are about blocking Info when they should be seeking information. That is absolutely right. Okay and then you. You said that. The trump administration has in fact cooperated and facilitated Congressional Oversight Investigations. That correct Sir just yes or no. Is that correct absolutely. The trump administration Australia's participated in oversight during the entire Congress until it got to this impeachment inquiry. So let me ask you about this call Sir. Robert Blair's Robert Blair. who was on this call? The trump administration the president himself directed him not to appear and give testimony Ronald Blair. Let's go I'm asking. The president directed not to appear give testimony. Yes or no. I think he was allowed to comment agency council. He was not allowed to come under the term set by the house. Intelligence Committee correct. I think he would have come with agency council. The trump administration version directed him not to come correct he would have provided testimony. I think if agency council could've come I mean it's really expensive dire. These outside lawyers. John Eisenberg Berg was directed not to come correct. The lawyers. Enberg presents another setback but he. He was directed not to come the lawyer. Who Lieutenant Colonel Vin men went to correct? Okay Eisenberg he's a he may have been able to come with agency council but he presents. Complexities I mean. He's the chief legal adviser for Ambassador Bolton's so he was directed not to come correct he. He may have been able to come with agency council but his testimony does present complexities. So let me ask you this was it. US Policy on July twenty six Mr request that Ukraine investigate former vice president Joe Biden. I think you're reading a little too much into some of the eight lines. I don't think the president was requesting an investigation into India. Joe Biden. He just mentioned offhand. Comment Matt Sir. Is that a no. It was not US policy to look into. Joe Biden you but you're presuming that then at some point became US policy to investigate. Joe Biden. And I don't think that's the case. Sir Let me show you what slide ten testimony.

S. citizen and a political opponent that was his testimony correct yes or no I was just money yes yes and let me ask you this are you you had said that the intelligence committee majority report that Mister Goldman I talked about you said it presents us if things are clear but they're not clear is that what you said Sir that's absolutely correct and you also worked on you were personally said worked on the minority report correct yes Sir was it important to you to be accurate in the minority for the work done was it important to be fair to witnesses to be accurate about what they said course was it important to be fair to the American people of course actually report what people centers let me to ask about somebody else on that call Mr but Jennifer Williams now she was a special adviser to vice to vice president pens on Europe and Russia fares that correct yes if you work for vice president pence correct correct and you said in your opening statement that these accusations that president trump was trying to do something for political purposes that was made by people who were pre had predetermined motives for impeachment thank some of my but I also indicated that some of these the witnesses and the impeachment inquiry I think you have revise their views after after the the call transcript came out an invisible or complaint was released are you calling vice president pence is special adviser liar Sir are you calling are you say she was pre determined to impeach I I didn't say that well if you know what the the question about the Jennifer waves interesting is I I ask you Sir she she never Ron mentioned anything to her supervisor she never mentioned anything to anybody in the vice president's office in route to Warsaw when the vice president was going to meet with president Lansky she didn't even raise it as a potential issue that might you know catch the vice president off guard well Mr tell her concern that she articulated during the course of the deposition and during the course of the hearing was the incongruence incongruent with with the facts and what she did during times relevant Mister catcher let's look at your report what you wrote in the report about miss Williams so we could put up slide six please and Sir you you made the same point that you try to make to the discount her testimony you said she testified that although she found the call to be unusual she did not she did not raise concerns or supervisor right now nobody in America knew about Jennifer Williams is concerns until she walked in the door for her decision so you when you said that although she found the call to be unusual that was an accurate that's so what you said about the call she didn't say was just unusual that you she said it was unusual that's all she said about it wasn't okay I mean she she that was you know here for nine hours in the bunker so she said a lot about so that was you in the motion German coming north logic we can't I just wanna get almond will suspend the gentleman has the time we can't see the stuff came in as the top happy to read it Jennifer Williams testified that quote although she found the call to be unusual quote she did not end of quote she did not raise concerns to her supervisor is it a fact Sir that miss Williams so a lot more than that if we have a point of order general status point of order the final order is in general Florida's complain that you can't see what the questioner is relying on and would like to see it and it is not a point you could nice will point of order and it was read to him general for sale only half of that was read to him relevant I let's slow down a bit the scroll down a bit here so that members are able to fully see what is being put in some Sensenbrenner a Republican congressman well without being able to see it or read it Mister gates has said that out let's slow down so that we can see or hear what he is referring to you're not letting that happen and that goes to the privileges of the members is to check if you are a this will send the whole gentleman will suspend the Mister but I could see now I appreciate the accommodation it's the well the the the monitor was turned out we can see okay this gentleman resume thank you Mister chairman so in the here it says that you said miss Williams said that she found it to be quote unusual and nothing more let's look at slide seven more let's look it's it's as unusual correct but it doesn't say and nothing more no it says unusual isn't a fax of the woman's Williams says is she struck her as unusual and inappropriate isn't that correct Sir that's what you said in our testimony okay and your staff report you left out the inappropriate parties in a block quote because she she she felt it was unusual should raise the concerns that lieutenant general catalogue so so let me ask you were you as fair to the American people in describing what miss Williams said as you were in describing any everything else in your report I I don't I don't have an issue with the way we described ms Williams testimony well let's look at what else miss Williams said we put up slide eight this is from miss Williams public testimony at thirty four she said all quotes I thought that the references to specific individuals an investigation such as former vice president Biden and his son struck me as political in nature given that former vice president is a political opponent of the president so you left that out of your staff report to then you you know miss Williams Sir did you leave that out here for yes or no if you if you're telling me I did I mean I don't I don't know as I sit here right now is that someone telling you you did okay and you have an explanation Sir we said you said miss Williams said that the call was unusual once the fact she said it was unusual and inappropriate and of a political nature because a route raised vice president of the vice president who she recognized was a political opponent of the president heard her views the call differ remarkably from Mr Marcin also from lieutenant general that's not my question my question is why did you miss quote miss Williams terms of what you just said what did you do it we do in this quarter so you stand so from the standard that you apply to your fact finding in your report you believe that was entirely proper to say that miss Williams from the call to be unusual when in fact she found the call would be unusual and inappropriate and of a political nature given that the former vice president is a political pawn of the president that your testimony Sir I mean we describes what miss Williams centuries no you did Mister chairman if either at you can ask you German I'm not hitting the after three games January you can ask for and you can do is not regular Germans as one of orderliness badgering the witness is not general continue and Sir you you you invoked Sir you involve Mr Harmon can you rule on my point of order these badgering the witness because he's doing that Sir you you and your vote this is not a good nice emotion it does not call for a ruling in the time belongs to the gentleman order the committee is not in order and the chairman is not in order it is not a point of order the committee is in order well would you rule on my original point of order even the original point of what it was not very nice people does not this as I think that the lawyers badgering the witness hello we have to have some reform in here and you have your new rules of decorum which aren't conforming with everybody else's rules I will say that sharp cross examination of witnesses not badgering the witness the general will continue Mister chairman there's a video of what you know what the gentleman has the time Mister chairman point of order general say the point of order under resolution six sixty we're supposed to follow the federal rules of evidence is that right what is it what is it no it is not correct what are the rules what are the objections that we're able to not of that is not a point of view it is a point of order there's no reason not a point of order the gentleman will continue where is the list of rules gentleman will continue gentleman will continue thank you Mister chairman Mister Mister caster you just invoked Tim Morrison he was someone on the call to the correct your and let me put up slide nine of Mr Morrison's testimony on page thirty eight of his public testimony and Mister Morrison said well the question was questioned by Mister Goldman you heard the call you recognize that president trump was not discussing the talking points that the NSC had prepared based on official US policy and was instead talking about the investigations that Fiona hill had warned you about and then you reported it immediately to the NSC legal adviser is that the correct claim events here and Mister Morrison said that's correct before issue Mister caster let me ask you Mister Goldman earlier before your presentation we show the testimony of ms hell where she referred to what president trump was trying to do is running a domestic political Aaron is that what you understand is that what you intended as Mister Morrison about in your question to him yes it was about these two specific investigations the president trump ultimately did discuss an ask president so let's get to do these are the same two investigations that were discussed and we're the only two investigations that were at issue throughout the entirety of the scheme and so what are evidence found was that any time there was a reference to investigations it reference the bite an investigation and the two thousand sixteen election investigation and in fact ambassador Volker actually said that whenever he was saying using the term corruption what he meant was those specific to investigations and what was the significance to you that Mister Morrison who Mister castor himself is relied on invoke twice today where he said that he understood these were the investigations that.

"Is about the constitution of the United States. And the facts that leads to presidents violation of Zone of office this as a Catholic I resent. You're using the word hate in the sentence that addresses me. I don't hate anyone. I was raised in a way that has a heart hearts full of love and always prayed for the president.

Speaking Defensive Your speaker in a defensive what I know our many of the the issues that have been raised in this series proceeding. Appreciate you joining US tonight. We'll catch up soon. I appreciate it bill. Stay and bill. I want to turn to one more piece of this. We've got a lot to get to here so the third piece of this is what we're learning about the actual case in the actual articles and it was very interesting today and another exchange exchange with a reporter. NBC's Garrett Hake Pelosi not wanting to speak to the big question about other alleged obstruction. Take a look. Do you WANNA see elements of the Muller report or these other medications that the chairman will be making recommendations adult. What the The our counsel are lawyers achier the staffs of the committees at Vincent and look to them for their judgment. How do you read that for people who care about these issues shoes? You run a group about the rule of law politically. There may be reasons not to go to big substantively. If you think the president instructed the muller pro you have an obligation nation in Congress to deal with it but I mean you're a lawyer but don't use the prosecutor want to have your strongest count there and not have the more complicated ones. Maybe if necessary you you know giving slightly easier targets perhaps so you don't you don't like as a strategy you know getting back into it. I like mentioning as part of a pattern and I think that easiest way to do it is to have it in their me in a sentence or two as part of a pattern of obstruction a pattern of Welcoming foreign interference in our elections. You can have it in each of the Zubi three articles if they are three the abuse of power and bribery article the obstruction of justice article and the obstruction of Congress article. Those are all relevant to the mall. But I would have that more. As an instance of a pattern of which Ukraine crane is the key decisive moment. When I think this is true about the speaker at about a majority of the house they wouldn't maybe thought they should have? But they wouldn't have actually impeached just on the Muller report so you can't sort of retroactively make that up I think and I think they can use it as a as an example but they need to keep the focus on Ukraine. I think interesting to get your take. As a noted trump a critic in other words there are people who think of you in fact people have said this about you that you will take anything and everything against him and you're disagreeing with that tonight and saying at best it should be supporting evidence. Jason your view it will. Nancy Pelosi knows that not only in Congress but the country. There's an appetite for impeachment. But you can't just sort of fill ova plate right. You're going to have to get something that people can eat in small pieces that they can understand that they can take back to their constituents and explain when twenty twenty comes around so it makes sense that she somewhat narrow casting it right now. But here's the other issue. The only reason that Ukraine matters is because of Muller. It's because of previous things at the president said this this this in basketball we would almost must be calling this a makeup call. You're not getting this technical foul for what you just did. It's for the five other guys that you kick. If Donald Trump had an engaged such consistent and brazen behaviour if he weren't still doing win things like having Rudy Giuliani literally over there. We just accuse you of being in the cookie jar and guys over there with chips. Ahoy in Ukraine right. Now if the president wasn't continued to engage in this behavior haven wouldn't even have Ukraine so the idea of focusing specifically on this particular behavior keeping the money from the landscape and in order to affect twenty twenty but saying that this is the end end result of the mobile report and several other things that they've done that actually makes a lot of sense for Congress. Something the people can understand that it's striking very interesting here. Both you on that Jason Johnson. Our gratitude there's always bill stick around. I think you know why. And it's a reason for a lot of people to stick around coming up. We're also going to get to a fact.

White House attacks Lt. Col. Vindman while he testifies in Trump impeachment hearing
"Certainly everyone was moved by Lieutenant. Colonel von Men's close to his is opening statement really invoking his father invoking that we do right here as he said in his testimony and it was really quite scurrilous that while he was chest define line using the White House. Twitter Account the White House's tweeting out a vicious things about Lieutenant Colonel Vin men. He's now under protection of the. US US army he and his family. That's really outrageous. In this day and age. They're treating him as if he is disloyal American when he is in fact a true Patriot a tree it. They talked about whether in fact by being offered to be the Defense Minister for Ukraine he was disloyal to America. I'd I'd remind your viewers that Madeleine Albright when she was secretary of State afterwards was urged by the Czech Republic her native land though she has been an American for a very very long time time now to become president and she liked Vin Vin. Men Thought it was quite amusing and I don't think Republicans believe that Madeleine. Albright is disloyal to America. And neither is Lieutenant Lieutenant Colonel Vin and the other thing in terms of this afternoon that I really want people to understand is the Republicans. Keep saying that Zilenski. The ski never said that he was under pressure. Of course he didn't. He needs the United States he needs Donald Trump. No matter how awful the president is now no matter are how corrupt or how much of a bribe this is. And if he admitted he was under pressure he weakens himself as the president. So we're never going to hear him say that he was pressured Asher. It is a misunderstanding of the bargain. That leaders around the world fuel they have to make with this president because they have air national interests at stake even and if our president does not have our national interest in his mind. Let's let's what Colonel Vin been said in his opening statement about some of the other witnesses who've come forward I wanNA take a moment to recognize. The courage of my colleagues were appeared and are scheduled appear for this committee. I want to say that the character tax on these distinguished and honorable public servants is reprehensible. It is natural to disagree and engage in spirited debate. This has been the custom of Ah of our country since the founding fathers but we are better than personal attacks and John Holliman. The personal attack was coming to him from the White White House from the White House. Twitter account while he was testifying indeed and you know I mean at this point unsurprisingly given the way the president behave last Friday even though the attacks that he in gauged anonymous were seen widely as being as backfiring as undercutting. The Republican cause made Republican congressman as vicious and vitriolic. As they've been made them uncomfortable recognized their strategy was being undercut by the president. And yet here we come around again two days later and the same attacks being launched against Colonel Benjamin I just I don't think we should expect anything other than that now but this is going to be the. It's an appalling a state of affairs that this has become conventional but the president has it has no shame when it comes to who determines to be his targets and I just think we should assume for as long as this process plays out that the president if the president can attack colonel a purple heart. You know he can. He can take anyone and he

Today I'm pinch hitting for the regular host of this podcast David Challen and a note were recording this in the afternoon noon. So we've already heard testimony this morning from Lieutenant. Colonel Alexander Vin men from the National Security Council Jennifer Williams State Department employees on detail to Vice President Mike Pence but we're still anticipating the public hearings of Kurt Volker. He's the former special envoy for Ukraine and Tim Morrison Morrison vitamins boss at the National Security Council at the time. Luckily I have to stellar guests to help me through all the revelations emerging from this consequential day in a few minutes we'll be talking to David Sanger political and national security analyst and national security correspondent at the New York Times but I I'm joined by my colleagues CNN national security reporter Kylie Atwood. Welcome back to the PODCAST Kylie. Thanks so we've just heard from Jennifer Williams and Lieutenant Colonel Alexander van men. I think he was probably the to the more anticipated of the Witnesses but they are both people who were on the call and by the call. All I mean the call on July twenty fifth between the Ukrainian President Vladimir Zielinski and President Donald Trump. So what did you take. Take away from this morning session where we finally heard from people who listened in in real time to what president trump said the president Celeski. Yeah so they were both on the call and we now have them speaking to the public about what they heard and the bottom line is they both had concerns about what happened on that call and and as as we have all talked about repeatedly at length president trump did ask presidents lunch. Do him a favor and to investigate the Biden's on that call and so however one thing is that Jennifer Williams who works in the vice president's office Didn't actually raise her concerns to the lawyers at the National Security Council at the White House but Colonel Lieutenant Colonel Vin men who is at the NFC at the National Security Council. He said that he did raise concerns about that call and so he was a bit more full-throated in how concerned he was about what had went down He called it inappropriate and improper improper for the president to making a request for Ukraine to investigate a US citizen that being a President Vice President Biden at the time but He also said however that you know there were political implications with the ask that was being made and there were concerns at the White House about leaking out Just because of how political in nature it would be viewed. And I think it's important to know the Jennifer Williams She also thought thought that the call had political undertones to it because of the nature that president trump was asking about something that had to do with his political rival and not something that was consistent with. US policy towards Ukraine. But she didn't raise any concerns about it whatsoever really. She said she thought it was unusual. That there was this political so You know politicalness underneath it. But she didn't like then went to the National Security Council. Lawyer she basically Put it into a binder To give depends before he was gonna meet with Zielinski and that would that was about it. Yeah and she couldn't even say if the vice president had seen Those notes that she put into the binder. She wasn't aware aware of that. But as I said Lieutenant Colonel Vin men Went even further and he said that it was actually something that would be viewed as a demand by hi the Ukrainians and he was pushed on that because the language that the That president trump uses in the calls that he's asking for a favor and so they asked Lieutenant Colonel Vitamin why he would see it as a demand and that's when he spoke about kind of power disparity between trump and Zilenski and he also spoke about the fact that in military culture when a senior asks you to do something it's taken as in order and that was his interpretation Shen of the ask that vice that president trump was making a presence Lonski. This is a really good point and we have so we can. We can play a little sound of him Driving this point I went home. I think it's important to hear him say chairman culture. I come from the military culture when a senior asks you to do something even if it's play in pleasant it's it's not. It's not to be taking as request. It's B it's to be taken an order in this case the power disparity between the two leaders. My impression is that in order to get the White House meeting presidents alinsky would have to deliver. Are these investigations. This is a military guy. Donald Trump is not a military guy. You could sort of hear the wheels turning and Republicans heads maybe commander and chief. You sure he's the community. Ah but a civilian and so when he has ruined Donald Trump asked for a favor. Maybe he means it maybe he doesn't. This isn't pressure is at the end of the story and the Republicans did actually bring up that exact point you know they. They asked Vitamin is it appropriate to cast this expectation on president trump. Because he hasn't served served in the military and vitamin didn't have an exact response for that but he stood by his assessment. And that's really important here and the other thing that Vinnie Vinnie did was paint this picture for us of a moment at the White House in July when July tenth. That's right when the US ambassador to the U.. Gordon Sunland came out to Ukrainians and asked for specific investigations at the White House and it was a really incredible incredible moment to hear him describe because he talked about Ukrainian officials seeing discord among White House officials. Now it's no secret to you and I to to anyone who has covered a White House that there's always discord competition amongst. US officials to see that on display in front of the Ukrainians was really something something that was very very significant especially for vitamin and he also disagreed with what ambassador saw lynn was asking of the Ukrainians Dan and he told Ambassador Song then he told lawmakers this today that Ambassador Song that he told him bathroom stall and it was inappropriate and that his asks had nothing to to do with national security. We've now heard a couple of different You know versions of this July tenth meeting. It's turning out to be one of the more important moments and I it will be really interesting to see what Gordon Sunland says when he gets his turn To talk on Wednesday for so many reasons but this is one of them okay Kylie. We're just scratching the surface here. We've got a lot more to discuss. Plus we'll bring in Pulitzer Prize winner. David Sanger but first this quick break.

"Another impeachment inquiry the inquisition in ten years on my it is going to be the case it seems that Adam Schiff will tell us the same story more or less every day now will tell us the same thing day in and day out as we are then I suppose gonna just came off and say anything will do anything just please stop this sure your stone about the threat to our democracy from trump's phone call to lives alone ski that didn't change anything no investigation Ukrainians got the money for the aid and the weapons that trouble give them an a bomb warnings but here we are going through this nonsense yet again I would note that there was a lot of we've seen before today you had witnesses including tense HM device present tenses aid samples take part of Jennifer Williams and also lieutenant colonel vin made hero of the hash tag resistance right now isn't that a surprise to exactly nobody but he is out there giving a lot of his opinion she's giving her opinions a little bit she seems like she is not someone who wanted to be caught up in this but is going to answer questions he definitely didn't want to be there he's part of this thing he got this running he got this in motion so we already know we're dealing with here which is also why he's very very odd very touchy about making sure the for example he's always referred to as a tenant colonel than men and even if a inadvertently for example Devin newness just referred to as Mr been many key crime what must corrected right away also showing up in full dress uniform for his testimony there's a lot of theatrics around Mr Inman right now and I would just remind you that many of the same juror nos and Democrat members of Congress who will try to use in men's service in the military as a shield for for many criticism for what he is trying to do now which has nothing to do with his military service he was at the National Security Council a body comprised of advisers to the president mostly civilians it's not as that's not his military service he is there is an advisory a member of an advisory committee to the president and in that capacity he absolutely can be criticized but many of the Democrats and the members of Congress who want you to feel that vin minutes beyond criticism how how dare you critique his motives are motivations did they feel that way about the ambush by hash tag resistance Obama voting deep staters like Sally Yates setting up general Flynn and then trying to get him not just fired which they did and ruined which they did but sent to prison which they are still rooting for sure what when is military service a shield against all criticism wanted to Democrats trying to take down the president but if it's somebody else if it's somebody who's in trump's good gracious somebody who is trying to help implement a trumpet gender than military services no shield whatsoever so I'm just glad we we establish the double standards right up front let's let's be very clear about those double standards and also a a well I'll get into that in a moment the backstory that we keep getting from these different to individuals vin men for example even one often talked about how proud he was of his dad and leaving the server you know that's all fine I just don't care it doesn't matter but you'll notice that this is a recurring theme look at how honorable and decent and wonderful these public servants are servants who have made it quite clear they objected to president trump's decision making on Ukraine they didn't like that for example as vin man said he didn't use the talking points that he was supposed to are you not use the talking points on the phone call that a bunch of pure ice repair talking points the CIA for you know we we would look at talking points for different senior officials in this is not a this is not an unusual activity and guess what plenty of times zero C. I. directory right of talking boards like men thanks who cares doesn't really matter it's there for the benefit of the decision maker for the person who is actually in the exchange in the for a trying to accomplish a goal just there in an advisory role but the backstory of Inman very important the backstory these other officials of come forward the ones who are clearly trying to advance the narrative of inappropriate behavior that the president engaged in is not interesting inappropriate is very should Jack Dave way to talk about this isn't it I mean I thought it was inappropriate for president Obama for example to in a desperate attempt to salvage some foreign policy legacy for himself for his administration and therefore for the hand off to Hillary Clinton to run the democratic party's foreign policy going forward I thought it was wildly inappropriate for Obama to send pallets of cash actual pallets of cash to the terrorist regime in Tehran all in an effort to try to curry favor with them to get an Iran nuclear deal done that was all about legacy for Obama and as we know didn't even last into the trump administration I I thought that was inappropriate I'm not saying Obama couldn't do it although maybe you should have gotten the Senate to ratify this treaty so that the next president could just say see you later but I think I still think it's inappropriate I think a lot of things are inappropriate I don't care what a an NSC detail we thinks about the president's conduct I just don't care I don't have to care I don't care especially given that why doesn't someone has been the maybe they will later on in his testimony but why doesn't someone point out that there's no credit being given by these deep state elements to trump for doing what Obama would not doing what was so necessary sending the javelin missiles which was a major it is a provocation to the Russian government but one that if you want help the cranes are gonna have to do if you're serious about it but the backstory about vin men that we have to hear to be told that he also was advising the landscape one point about how to interact with our government in the trump administration and perhaps even ignore some aspects of the trump administration's requests is that not a bit of a problem for people which team are you applying for when you're doing that you don't advise a foreign government out how to do an end run on your own government that you work for his request for Mister of that that's your you don't tell a foreign government Hey nullify whatever the commander in chief is is asking of you don't worry about that I came across a testimony today I wonder how much focus the medial put on that but my favorite moment to me this is the best thing that has happened so far and all this testimony my favorite moment came when Devin newness is asking for a very important information about the chain of transmission of information from vin men to anybody else who was involved in this please begin that producer mark what as you know the intelligence community has seventeen different agencies what agency was this individual from if I could interject here we don't want to use these things it's our time and our channel we need to protect the whistle blower.

S. weakness towards over Ukraine that's what they're saying now Donald Trump held this back which was us clear sign to Russia even though the Ukrainians didn't know we were holding it back is somehow the Russians did and it was a sign that the United States was weak on Ukraine and wasn't really going to support them even though they had already given the missile system the second missile system was held back for a couple of months however at the same time holding back all the military aid during an actual conflict with Ukraine the United States held back military support when you crane was actually in the military conflict with Russia that administration that was outwardly Oprah will working towards a reset with Russia and who had said during the twenty twelve election Mr Romney the nineteen eighties called and they want their foreign policy back that was not sending a signal of weakness on US support for Ukraine you can't have both you have to pick one or.
