"Former national security adviser John Bolton is neither confirming nor denying a report in this morning's New York times that his new books as president trump did in fact time military aid to Ukraine to that country investigating the bidens is Linda Kenyon Michael sharpening the case for witnesses and documents the call for witnesses has sharpened after New York times report that cited sources familiar with former national security adviser John Bolton's yet to be released book according to the report Bolton who said he would testify if subpoenaed writes that the president sought to tie up three hundred ninety one million dollars in aid to Ukraine to his request for the country's leaders to help with investigations into the Democrats including former vice president Joe Biden and a son hunter Republican senator James Langford appearing on ABC's this week says Democrats shouldn't call witnesses including Bolton they want to move as fast as possible and now they want to slow down the trial as much as possible in the Senate this is a very odd political strategy for them more than a fact finding strategy that prompted democratic senator Doug Jones to tweet the Senate needs to hear from Bolton the American people deserve to hear from Bolton if we can't get bolder let's get a subpoena for the book the defense is picking apart the prosecution's case saying it failed to meet the burden of proof Republican senator Lindsey Graham tells fox news Sunday morning futures he agrees in two hours the Senate the president's defense team destroyed the narrative created in twenty one hours regarding the process and substance house impeachment manager Val Deming's on ABC's this week obviously disagrees they ever that's against the president is overwhelming senator Graham on fox says it wasn't that overwhelming effect he predicts the impeachment trial will backfire on the Democrats he's gonna get acquitted because this is been a railroad job by the house he's going to be stronger after impeachment then he was after Mahler regardless of the outcome Democrats say the American people need to know this was a fair trial and they said the only way to do that is to allow witness testimony and documents is it an uphill fight yes what I say it's likely to happen know what I say there's no chance it will happen now Senate democratic leader Chuck Schumer the only thing we're seeking is the truth and the truth means witnesses and documents chief house impeachment manager Adam Schiff on NBC's meet the press says president trump and his team are doing everything possible to prevent that the president's team is pushing out the argument we don't have time to call witnesses we'd really love to have these people test why we just don't have time to do it it would be too inconvenient that's a
Climate Change Threatens the Future of Sports
"Week one of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne is almost in the books. There have already been surprises like cocoa goth knocking out defending champ. Naomi Asaka in the third round and there have been climate challenges to bad air quality because of the wildfires burning across southeastern Australia intense rainstorms. Even a blanket of red dust just from a sandstorm so what is an increasingly warm planet and the unpredictable weather that comes with it mean for tennis and other outdoor Sports Dave Ziren of the nation wrote wrote recently about how climate change is affecting sports. And he's with us now now studios in Washington. DC to talk more about it Davis Iron. Welcome back thanks for joining us. A great to be here so in your piece you describe the extreme dream weather conditions that we've seen at the open as the tip of an iceberg of a melting iceberg. In fact what did you mean by that. Well I meant that. This is an issue that sports needs to reckon with and so far it is not reckoned with it whatsoever. This is a very evocative example. Because it's a grand slam event and people are talking about it but this has been happening for years in sports on a host of smaller Mahler and other fronts like less days to play hockey in Canada. Because they're the rinks aren't solid ice. I mean they're melting rinks. In Canada other instances elect cardiovascular sports intense cardiovascular sports like cycling and like marathoning have been cut short because of heat outdoor skiing Is something that has has had to deal with the idea of having to store snow on heavy snow days because they can't be guaranteed snow throughout the year and that in and of itself leaves a tremendous carbon footprint so on a host host of different fronts. We're in a situation where climate change in sports are colliding you know. Sometimes the international sports entities have dealt with health challenges. It's like this echo virus in during the during the summer Olympics in Brazil. I mean there was open discussion about that. But you you've said that the sports world has really avoided having a conversation about climate climate change. Why do you think that is will because it puts the question of whether or not we should even be playing these sports right now under the microscope like in the context of a warming planet? Are there some sports that we should probably do away with when we're in a situation where it's possible that as many as half of all golf courses could be threatened by rising waters by the the end of this century it raises the question of should we be building more golf courses. Doing is asked to golf. Digest reported on this that of two thousand ninety out of one thousand. Roughly you want out of one thousand. Two hundred Outdoor courses that they looked at half of them are going to be affected by rising waters are sports organizations like Fida in soccer or the. NFL fell the National Football League or the International Olympic Committee. Are they built for talking about big issues like this. That's a great question. There definitely built for starting conversations nations which is what we need to do. I mean these aren't environmental emergency organizations. That can step up and do the kind of work that we need to help a warming planet but they are organizations that can start discussions in these discussions are certainly desperately needed at this point. You're going to see this summer in Tokyo. At the two thousand twenty Olympics they're expecting a rising heat and at the next world a cop which is going to be held in Qatar where it's going to be extremely hot And that's why they moved it to the fall instead of doing it. Over the summers traditionally do precisely because of the rising heat and so in these contacts can be discussions that can be had about how sports should operate. How can sports be more green? How can a sports not leave such an intense carbon footprint imprint think the Australian Open? And what's been happening. There opens the way up for all these discussions before you go. Who Do you think should take the lead here? I mean. Should it be these organizations that are supposed to look out for the interests of the players as well as the integrity of the sport. Do you think it's like the celebrity athletes. This is one of the subjects of your career as Islamic activism. And how how that affects. The athletes lives and careers. I mean this is something you've written about extensively for for many years. Now I mean what do you I think I think we're going to need The top athletes in their sports speaking out and speaking out on behalf of all players in treating it like a workplace safety issue. I think if they're able to do that. It provides an opening for speaking about the environmental impact and talking about the impact on the athletes themselves. I do not think we can trust the league's the higher ups in the leagues which are basically profit machines from actually actually trying to say well. Maybe we can't make as much money but also leave less of a global footprint. It's GonNa take the athletes to step up and make this thing happen. That's Davis Iron. Hey sports writer for worth a nation. That's the Progressive Magazine. He recently wrote about climate change and its impact on sports. Teams aren't thank you so much for talking to
Comparing the impeachment trials of President Clinton and President Trump
"Right now on Capitol Hill ahead of the one PM eastern resumption of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump some Senate Republicans are holding a news conference led by Lindsey Graham South Carolina chair of the Judiciary Committee thank you all very much observations about yesterday it was a long day but that's okay a lot of Americans have long days a couple things I've been involved into impeachment trials this is the second one I just want to make an observation here what the house managers were proposing yesterday is basically destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it make it make it when it comes to the partisan impeachment not have a venue to go to court and litigate privileges at the end of an exercise our prior presence when it comes to Donald Trump willing to destroy the institution of the office in the name of getting him so bottom line the Clinton impeachment was conducted by outside counsel there's not here Ken Starr spent five years investigating the president before we took up the matter in the house the president was allowed to cross examining Ken Starr at the house Judiciary Committee he recommended eleven grounds for impeachment and president Clinton utilize the court's extensively on his behalf Robert Mull was an outside counsel appointed to investigate this press I want the public to note that this president cooperated with Mister Miller he turned over million documents his lawyer testified for thirty hours and after two years of investigation with nineteen lawyers forty F. B. I. agents two thousand subpoenas and five hundred search warrants they decided to take no action they said there was no collusion between the trump campaign and the Russian government when it came to obstruction of justice they did not recommend any action I thought that would be the end of actually introduce legislation to say that Robert Muller cannot be removed accept the call because the president felt like the motor investigation was of which I did not the present was frustrated because he said he did nothing wrong I can understand that but it was important for me to make sure that the country would have somebody to look at these allegations Ross are very serious and I supported Mahler's ability to look any work for a long time and I thought it would be over Mr Shipp said yesterday what they did in the house was just like what we did with Clint that is absolutely untrue from the time they authorized impeachment it took forty eight days not two years with Mahler not five years like Clint the forty eight days the fact finding process was done in the Intel committee now the Judiciary Committee the present was denied the right to cancel the Intel committee and could not request with they spent one day in the Judiciary Committee go back and look at the tapes of how long can start testified before the Senate excuse me the house Judiciary Committee of which I was a far what we've done for the first time in American history isn't Peter president without outside counsel and all in a forty eight day period well here's what struck me the most where the house manager said reason we didn't go to court we don't want to go through the courts is that we can engage in before the election they withdrew from the Cumberland cover of the dead the national security adviser case where the dead the national security adviser what course to tell me what to do judge the house actually withdrew the subpoena because they didn't want the court process to stop the impeachment trial they would have the United States Senate create an impeachment process where the president would not be allowed to go to article three court to argue privileges that have been argued in every other impeachment trial and have been argued by president since George Washington that would destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it what would it do it would allow a handful any three hundred plus million country people all along partisan lines ten PH a president without independent judiciary the before I came here I used to try cases we have a lot of good lawyers in this body all I can say is that when the court date was set and if I showed up and asked for a bunch of subpoenas and documents to be produced on the day of trial that I had not pursued before the trial in any serious way how to get tossed out what do we do yesterday exactly what happened in the Clinton impeachment trial we're going to hear the house's gate the president's response we're going to ask questions then we'll decide among ourselves do we want to know anything yesterday was about eleven hours of them telling us how bad their case was in my view they did not pursue these witnesses because they knew the president what's the judiciary very us and it literally would stop them impeaching him before the election so the only thing I can tell the American people when it comes to replacing those present nine months plus from the election you got an up hill battle with me because I really do believe that the best person group of people to pick a president are the voters not a bunch of partisan politicians senator Lindsey Graham every day we're here doing this is a day were taken away from doing things that really matter so when they say it was like Clinton no when they say the court's really have no place in impeachment that's all going to be done by the house and the Senate without any independent judicial review god help us all center Steve Daines of Montana we had a lot of time last night thank some twelve hours on the floor of the US Senate is the first impeachment trial I've been through senator Graham is the experience that is his prior political life it reminded me of when I went to high school in Bozeman Montana if I turned in a term paper he was half complete my teacher toss it back to me they didn't get it done is incomplete probably give it up and say it's a complete try yeah that's why I felt like we saw last night was an incomplete case I have not done a complete homework you're my enemy what Nancy posted back in two thousand ten on the Obama care is that first we got a pass to find out was it it feels like what happened last night they had a rush this through the house just get over to the Senate we'll find out what's really in try to fix a fair let me remind you remind all of us in two hundred forty four years of history of this great country United States Senate has never remove a president from office never you look at the two trials for presence but we have had in the Senate over the course of our history President Johnson eighteen sixty of course president Clinton nineteen ninety nine what's unique about this impeachment trial versus the other two the other two both had crimes alleged in the impeachment articles president trump does not the other two impeachment trials had bipartisan support coming out of the house president trump impeachment coming out of the house did not first time I've ever seen there were many things that I agreed with with with a German never said last night but he did say some and I hope everybody hurts actually back to the Clinton days was it and I will paraphrase it and god help us if we ever purely partisan basis numbers work back then were wives and I hope you would see them today this is the most hardest impeachment process ever seen a history of this great country no crimes alleged in the trunk articles not bipartisan in a very important final point is if you look for the Democrats are asking United States Senate to do is to remove president trump from office and to bar him from ever holding office again was also unique about this trial versus president when this is done in an election it's really big the fundamental question as well is to the United States Senate the side the two thousand twenty election and overturn a two thousand sixteen election by removing this president from office I put the trust in the voters of this country they should have that say not the nicest

"Hello I'm Naomi. Lewin welcomed the classics for kids. Kids before there were cars. The best way to get around in the winter was by horse drawn sleigh today.

And we're off again lieutenant. Kisha who took this sleigh ride was a fictional Russian soldier from the eighteen hundreds. Can you think of the difference between what he might have seen. And what you would see on a sleigh ride I could you even take a sleigh ride where you live without bumping into a bus or truck. Yikes we just missed them.

Trump's Impeachment Inquiry: How did we get here?
"It started with one whistle blower now less than two months later a full blown impeachment inquiry set to reach a critical phase the first public testimony that will likely shape public perceptions of the investigation and the future of the trump presidency the central questions wasn't an abuse of power for the president to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival here at home was he acting to further his own personal and political interests by withholding military aid from a key US ally with all of the rhetoric flying from both sides of the aisle and president trump's own free wheeling defense we wanted to hit the pause button and ask how did we get here the actions taken to date by the president has seriously violated the constitution September twenty fourth house speaker Nancy Pelosi formally opens an impeachment inquiry after a bomb shell whistle blower complaint raised concerns over trump still only phone call with the Ukrainian president for autumn years Lewinski conversation was was perfect my phone call was perfect according to a White House memo detailing that call trump tells the Ukrainian president we do a lot for Ukraine so let's get laid a response we are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically buying American anti tank missiles trump's response I would like you to do is a favor though he goes on to ask for Lenski to investigate a deep funk theory about the twenty sixteen election and then a second request an investigation into his democratic rival it goes to the core of whether the president views his office to seek political help in his reelection campaign and did so to the detriment of our nation's security house Democrats said they should at least twenty six subpoenas and at least fifteen individuals have appeared before Congress according to witness testimony trumps the man was forced to fight his top advisors including his acting chief of staff and his personal attorney in phone calls and meetings for months among the key testimony so far bill Taylor the top US diplomat in Ukraine who told Congress he was told everything including military aid in a White House meeting was contingent on Ukraine's willingness to launch the investigation trump requested Gordon son one the US ambassador to the U. who in a stunning about face room bar I used his testimony Sonya now saying he told a top Ukranian official Ukraine would likely not receive military aid unless you crane publicly agreed to investigate trumps targets and lieutenant colonel Alexander vin meant a White House national security official who was on that July phone call then men recalled one meeting in particular were senior Ukrainian officials were told they had to investigate the bidens could've been men also testified he was told to hold on military aid came from the White House chief of staff's office in the face of mounting evidence the president has been unrelenting in his defense which is all a hoax Republicans largely closing ranks around the president as Democrats move for work those open hearings will be an opportunity for the American people to evaluate the witnesses for themselves to make their own determinations about the credibility of the witnesses but also to learn first hand about the facts of the president's misconduct and joining me now to break this down further is ABC news senior national correspondent Terry Moran and Terry I want to start with these public hearings and who the public will see testify to big witnesses to lead off William Taylor was the acting ambassador in Ukraine and George can a state department official with responsibility over to you gonna get a picture from Kiev from Ukraine and from Washington from two men who were very alarmed about what was going on and that is the end of the at the end of the week Marie on your vitamins who was the ambassador who was pushed out by Rudy Giuliani and others in the administration and Terry really at the heart of this is a federal law that says it would be illegal to accept receive or solicit anything of value from a foreign national in connection with the US election there are those who say the phone transcript itself showed that but now we have this long line of witnesses we do a lot of election lawyers will tell you that the phone transcript does demonstrate that the president violated election law some election lawyers will tell you know because it doesn't have a determinate monetary value and that's a debate in the election law but really this isn't about election what about the constitution and the question does the evidence show that the president abused his power by trying to get a forgot to go after his political rival is that an impeachable offense at the constitution really that I think the Congress and the country's gonna focus in the whistle blower a lot of attention obviously on the whistle blower doesn't sound like that whistle blower will be appearing to think it's important well not from an evidentiary standpoint Adam Schiff the the German intelligence committee said other witnesses in sworn testimony have borne out what the whistle blower complaint says so he's not or she is not necessary in test was probably true from evidence and federal law protects this whistleblower from any kind of retaliation and there is a concern that the inflammatory language might endanger the whistle blower but I cover jury trials for a long time juries like the eyeball witnesses and were talking about overturning a presidential and there will be Americans for whom the impeachment evidence is less persuasive is diminished because we can't see and know the person who started that their motivations and intent and enter and no you covered the click the Clinton impeachment you obviously followed the Nixon impeachment as a little kid but what are the possible outcomes here well the president could be removed from office I think there's some confusion about the word impeachment impeachment is the indictment it is going to go to the floor of the house of representatives almost certainly and it looks as if the present will be pleased to be a trial in the Senate and of sixty seven senators are two thirds of the senators present vote the press will be removed from office but I think ultimately what we're looking at is the final verdict will come from the American people on election day about this conduct about whether or not we want a presidency that goes to other governments for assistance in going after political rivals and that the election day now less than a year away will be the ultimate verdict on all of this thanks as always Terry thanks much so let's bring in democratic representative Jackie spear a member of the intelligence committee which will conduct those public hearings this week thanks so much for joining us let me ask you Robert Mahler's public testimony earlier this year did not galvanize public opinion on the findings of his investigation into Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election and while this is obviously a different allegation how do you make a stronger public case this time I think for a number of reasons first of all I'm Bob Miller's report was four hundred pages long I had a lot of legalese this is a very simple straightforward act the president broke the law he went on a telephone call with the president of Ukraine and said I have a favor though and then proceeded to ask for and investigation of his rival and this is a very strong case of bribery because you have an elected official the president are demanding action of a foreign country in this case of and providing something of value which is the investigation and he is withholding aid which is that official act and the constitution is very clear treason bribery or acts of mission and in this case it is is clearly one of those obviously Republicans would disagree with you on a lot of that Republicans sent their list of witnesses they want to call as part of the intelligence committees public impeachment hearings yesterday it included the whistle blower and hunter Biden this is what intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement last night this inquiry is not and will not serve however as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigation into the bidens or twenty sixteen and in a letter to Republican shift calling the whistle blowers testimony redundant and unnecessary and would only place their personal safety at grave risk it doesn't sound like the chairman will allow Biden or the whistle blower to testify as the Republicans have requested if you're able to guarantee his or her safety why shouldn't the whistle blower testify well the whistleblower actually provided a document he was third hand we have colonel then men who was actually on the call who will be in a position I think to testify and so you have a much more direct person to speak to about the events and if you have the actual transcript of that the president himself provided it is corroboration so you you have up what we have to prove though is corrupt intent and we prove corrupt intent by showing first of all the money was withheld secondly there was concealment there's concealment by virtue of having that transcript Ford into a special server you have concealment because you have persons within the administration who are prevented from testifying you then go further and you have this diversion by the president by trying to focus on the whistle blower who legally has a right not to be this woman even though even though their battle government even though there may be a legal right are are Terry Moran was just saying it's someone the people might want to hear from for for political benefit is that something you should consider having a whistle blower come forward because Republicans have made such an issue of this I think the Republicans are making an issue of anything that they think will give them some gravitas the only thing that the whistle blower can say is that he was told by other people's about the phone call we have the other people coming forward to actually testify so you have direct evidence not indirect evidence and the whistle blower has great risk associated with his life right now and he also has the right under the law under the whistleblower statute to have his whistle blower complaint filed and for him to be anonymous strongly about whistleblower protection and and and you said the rules driving the impeachment process are very equal and yet chairmanship hand turn down those G. O. P. witnesses and the White House lawyers are not allowed to participate in public hearings before the house intelligence committee how's that very equal well there are other witnesses the Republicans have requested that I would think that the press the chairman is going to make available to testify to Morrison is one Kurt Volker is another we want to stay focused on the crane the call and having hunter Biden come in is unrelated to the Ukraine call and so that becomes irrelevant the whistleblower again has protection as it relates to having the witnesses being questioned by someone within the White House that can in fact happen the president can have a conclusion that he can reach at the end of the actual Judiciary Committee hearing and all we're asking for is that we receive what we are rightly deserving which is the documentation from state department all of which is with been withheld and the primary people like Mulvaney who is the chief of staff who took direct orders from the president of course is using this phony argument of absolute immunity which doesn't exist

"Russia collusion story including up to and including the Mahler investigation he has been working tirelessly on a book about this I am the book is published today it's been out there available for pre order for a while but it's available today it's called ball of confusion in the plot to rig an election am to destroy a presidency now that should give you eight point he good indication of what this book is about this book is replete with evidence it is replete with some of the most incredible expert opinion and insight into what this attempt to overthrow a presidency and overthrow the results of an election what is how it began how it was conducted who did it who was involved who has been exposed the thing about this book is that it McCarthy is a brilliant guy and he can ride in legally is as well as anybody can but this book is written in a almost conversational very rational way and it explains doesn't just a queue is doesn't just the ledge it explains why the collusion in charge why this whole notion of collusion was B. S. from the start not by may say I'm Indian I spoke regularly about this during the entire length of time this investigation went on I was picking his brain about legal things you are using the experience that he had had as a prosecutor VST and why and somebody familiar with number of the agencies that were involved here and we would share thoughts and opinions back and forth and I knew from the moment I heard he was writing a book about this that was gonna being comprehensive in probably be there are a lot of books that are out there now that that that were written during like Gregg Jarrett's book when I read it was was fabulous because of the primary contention his contention was that all of this began with the need to exonerate Hillary Clinton the F. B. I. call me all of these people on the left the Washington establish they head to exonerate her they had to clear her from any crimes that she had committed and she had committed crimes he was the democratic nominee they desperately needed her to be elected for a whole host of reasons and for that to happen she had to be cleared what McCarthy's book does it start with the beginning of how this all started and explains that the entire premise of it was made up in Khan cocked and and what is B. S. it could never have been otherwise it could not have been substantive ever this was one of the biggest hoaxes that was that was configured to and strong on the American people in our lifetimes and maybe beyond but the fact is that this book is conversational am very rational about it it's it's calm it's not filled with histrionics it's not filled with what you would think is is simply partisanship as a reason this is a call me cruel legal dice section of this entire fraudulent effort if you want to become conversant in every aspect of this this hoax that matters if you want to be the one in your family that has the answers to any question anybody would ask you about this in this book is a must not only for that it's just if folks it's fun to read it because it will confirm much of what your instincts of told you has gone on it will confirm what much of what has been explained but it blows this thing to smithereens it blows this entire collusion there never was any there was never any evidence of any collusion there was no reason for an investigation and yet they have one how did they do it Andy McCarthy explains it in ball of confusion the plaque to rig an election and destroy a presidency but let me tell you what's unique about this one yes I just told you there have been a lot of books about and I'm not I'm not saying that those previous books missed the point they all had their their own premise they all have their own objectives this context the context of ball of confusion is something that I haven't seen in a book yet it starts with the premise that Obama politicized the intelligence agencies of this country that Barack Obama and the hierarchy of his administration politicized law enforcement for eight years McCarthy demonstrates none of this could have happened were it not for figures in the Obama administration high ranking figures in the Obama administration this wise the politicization of the department of justice by a sitting president of the United.
