Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine

"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

Recording shows Trump called for firing of former Ukraine ambassador

"We have reporting tonight about a recording being an audio recording that is apparently of the president from two thousand eighteen in which he personally and in blunt terms calls for the firing of Marie. Ivanovich Ambassador Astra to Ukraine now. Reportedly this this recording has been given to the Intelligence Committee in the House if the Senate will not accept except that tape as evidence or can't because of the way the timeline works here. Would you encourage the house to release that tape on its own to the public. Look we believe everything often should be made public. We believe we have right on our side. We believe the American people are on our side. You know when we started four weeks ago with witnesses and documents no one knew would it was now however our Republican colleagues feel they know their constituents are strongly for witnesses and documents and incidentally there is still eight to ten Republicans who have not said. They're against witnesses and documents. We hope to get him but we should make it public. And I'll say one more thing about that tape. What president trump did and? This has the support from impeachment Dodo. She is part of the impeachment situation. What he did to ambassador? Ivanovich is just despicable. This is a woman who dedicated her life to the country. She was not a political person at all. She was the kind of person that makes America proud. She's sort of in a civilian sense like our soldiers and for him to be so nasty and to be so cruel in his actions to her and now on this tape. He's despicable he's despicable and what Adam Adam Schiff talked about and what a lot of the managers did is what the president does and how he acts that. It has to be his way or no way that he is the whole country if the benefits him it's good and if it doesn't it's not regardless of how it affects America That plays into this. This man is is just he is so against the greatness of American values and what we believe in and this is just another stunning awful example. It's despicable despicable.

I'd like to see the full tax tomorrow because there is some real colorful stuff's up by partners okay. So here is is the latest. According to NPR Ukraine's national police are now investigating whether US ambassador. Maria Banovic was under surveillance last spring. Something implied in a series of. What's at messages between Robert? Hyde and associate of Rudy Giuliani president. Trump's personal lawyer between left Parnassus and Robert Hide the texts made public between partisan hide a trump supporter and retired marine running for Congress in Connecticut suggested that amount of which was being monitored both latronic electronically and in person in an apparent breach of Diplomatic Security Hydrogen one message. That are moving her tomorrow yet. The guys over there asked me what I would like to do. And what's in it for them. Ukrainian authorities said the implication. That ambassador was under illegal surveillance and her latronic gadgets interfered with by the private persons at the request of US citizens suggests a possible violation of its own laws as well as the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations which protects diplomats on foreign soil. So in other words love harness the guy who is testifying Zoll trump was coordinating with Robert Hyde. Possibly according to these text messages they seem to suggest in order to survey Marie Ivanovich and according to police officers coming down from from which is weird. Because from could've just fired Ivanovich anytime he wanted she was in his ambassador. Is the president of the United States. Why in the world would he need surveillance? Why would he need is on marie-yvonne image? Introduce all of this like there's no actual or is it now it's possible that idiocy explains all of this and that trump is involved in the idiocy. But we're going to need to talk to somebody who actually talk trump and that is why in the end. All that's going to happen here as the Senate is going to have to call some of these people as witnesses. That's where this is going. The Senate will in fact call these people as witnesses there are. There is not enough support in the Senate to dismiss the charges outright. especially not with all this roiling so this impeachment thing in the Senate could actually get fairly interesting acting between talk about the Impoundment Control Act and left parties and all the rest but suffice it to say that the media's newfound obsession with lead Parnis hero of the resistance in this way a little bit and Michael Cohen was a was a convicted liar left harnesses under indictment right now for corruption. Those are not your best sources when it comes to an unbiased the view of what exactly is going on here especially when they're appearing on Rachel maddow enthusiastically feeding her. Whatever it is that she wants to hear so? That is your latest on the bombshells in impeachment. Gate Twenty twenty which is in fact eating both of those are relevant pieces of Information Love Story and the Gao Story Again J. O.. Story I tend to actually kind of agree with the GAO's assessment but that does not mean that it's impeachable and just means a problem between the executive and legislative branch. That has a statutory remedy. You APARNA stuff. The idea that the president was telling him him to go get people to shadow. Yamada Vich or that. The president was telling was telling Lebanese that he ought to go dig up. Nefarious information on Joe Abide Neuro again. That is third hand stuff and the Democrats could have called Parnis at any time and they could call Giuliani at any time. But they're not calling any of these people which is at the very least somewhat suspicious Asia's better for them frankly that trump gets acquitted and then they can sit around talking about how it's giant cover up by all the Republicans. I think that is what they're looking for at this point okay. Meanwhile in the twenty twenty Democratic presidential race we saw Rackham Stockham robots the debate the other night it was really between Sanders and Warren Elizabeth. Warren suddenly conveniently remembered like two weeks out from the Iowa caucuses causes which by the way are going to be wild. Because the caucuses this year are going to be held differently than they have been in past years so typically the Iowa caucus results come down to who has the most delegates now. The Democratic Party is GonNa now who has the most votes at the beginning of the night. Who has the most votes at the end of the night and the number of delegates one which could create the ability for several candidates to claim victory? Because just because you win the most votes does not mean that you win the most delegates in caucus states because again the caucuses are not held on raw voting power. Not An advocate voting outing power the the the way you have certain caucuses in the caucuses if a majority of the caucus vote for candidate than all of that caucus electoral votes all delegates. Let's go to that candidate so it's sort of like Electro College. There could be a difference between the popular vote in the Electoral College in Iowa. Effectively speaking well that could create room for conflict. Things get real wild while well as as you're saying Elizabeth Warren the other night suddenly conveniently remembered two weeks out the Bernie. Sanders is a brutal sexist. And then you'll recall the magical moment after the debate uh where Elizabeth Warren went up to Sanders. Sanders stuck out his hands. Shake her hand and she immediately started berating him about something and Tom. Steyer awkwardly in the background started to back away like homer Simpson into the bushes well now. CNN has released the audio of this exchange. Now I've a question. How is that even remotely journalistically decent? Truly like that's a serious question. We have all of these like if you're on CNN. You're one of the candidates. Your assumption fairly is that after the debate is over your mic is off right. That is the assumption and the fact that CNN is not like CNN's not releasing the conversations that are going on in the background. Right here between Joe Biden and Tom Steiner or anything either. They're only releasing the conversation between Warren and Sanders. I mean I think Sandra's people have a reason to complain here. Why is it that? CNN is conveniently releasing audio. That is done off Mike effectively. Why and how? How do they have the authority to do that? On any journalistic is pretty impressive anyway. Here's is what actually gets said.

"So why isn't somebody doing something about it People have sued Congress sued. Those cases are making their way through the courts. I don't think they're going to become part of impeachment and I do think there is a case for just making impeachment narrow and clearer and sticking to one message about it Emily Republicans today are expressing outrage about some of the phone records included food in the house. Intelligence Committee Democrats impeachment report. The Adam Schiff report released on Tuesday because it contains records of what phone numbers burs Devon Nunez and Rudy Giuliani for example. Were talking to. In a number of cases The Republicans are raising fourth amendment. Search and and seizure concerns. They describe it as Adam. Schiff doing what he's accusing. Trump of using government power to target political enemies. Here's and Senator Rand Paul talking about this and I'm alarmed the abuse of power by Adam Schiff. Did you see yesterday. It was released that he's actually spying on other members of Congress and journalists using his subpoena power to get their phone calls. This is a this is exactly what he's accusing the president of using the power. We're of government to go after political opponents. This should never happen. And I'm going to work hard to make sure that in the future people Adam Schiff do not have the power to abuse government to go after their political rivals. Senator Rand Paul Republican of Kentucky on Fox. Emily do they have a point on this. Well I mean there's like a global question about the rules for getting this kind of phone call data which let's be clear we're talking about a log of who you called what you said on the phone. The power to do that comes from Nineteen Seventies Supreme Court opinion. You have to get a warrant. So there's that and congressional Warren Is Different From a Warren in a court. So you know if you're a strong civil libertarian. The Way Rand Paul is the idea that Congress could go to. At and T.. Or whoever the AH phone provider was and get this information. Yeah that could seem like an alarming intrusion and they didn't get a search want to do it. I understand from mcchord. The law allowed them to do that. And Senator Paul didn't allege it was illegal buddy alleged it was unethical and an abuse of power that was targeting. I think people for political reasons. The evidence indicates Giuliani was calling the whitehouse. Possibly the budget office. Though that detail now seems unclear but in any me case it was around when some of these Ukraine questions were being decided and the budget. Office's apparently where the military aid got stopped there are other questions about Ukrainians Nunez was talking to Parnasse indicted now for. US campaign finance violations in support of Ukrainian business people to get ambassador. Marie Ivanovich to try it was Nunez involved with. That is one of the questions. I'm just curious what you make of the substance of the fact that you know these phone records indicate the conversations that the indicate then. I don't think it's definitive proof. But it's suggestive right. It means that there were these communications going on among people. All who were all involved in The actions you were just talking about and why else would Guiliani calling the O.. M. B. But to talk to them about the the possibility of freezing this military aid or something else to do with Ukraine. And he's not a government official. So what's he doing having that kind of role. These are the questions right right. And yes when Giuliani's case it's because he's not a government official. What is the president's private lawyer doing calling Owen? Be If it turns out that he was actually calling to mess around and when military gets released to Ukraine and Endeavour Nunez's case If he's talking to let Parnasse like Giuliani was always always always talking to let Parnasse and has been indicted for illegally using foreign influence to get Marie Ivanovich fired was Nunez is in on that plot so the plot thickens exactly and obviously for Nunez to be there as part of the Intelligence Committee but also implicated is located. You know that's like a classic conflict of interest or dual role that when one wonders about I wanNA play the angry Joe Biden moment from from yesterday and get your thoughts. He's at a campaign stop in Iowa and a guy says Biden sent his son used. The word sent sent his his son to work in Ukraine and accused Biden of quote selling access to the president presumably meaning access to President Obama for the company. Burris Ma and Biden got mad. Here's the exchange and listeners. You'll hear the The Guy is is not on Mike so well you'll hear Biden Leiden better but you get the idea. It's.

"From the newsroom of the Washington Post. I know hey you back from Washington Lori Art over at the. I'm this is post reports Martine powers. It's Tuesday November nineteenth today week two of public testimony in the impeachment inquiry. Why political cool? Turmoil is erupting across Latin America and the growing threat of superbugs and now recognize ranking member Nunez running remarks. You'd like to make thanks. Gentlemen liked to address a few brief words to the American people watching at home. If you watched the impeachment hearings last week you may have noticed a disconnect between what you actually saw and the mainstream media accounts describing when you saw three diplomats who disliked president trump's Ukraine policy discussing second hand and third hand conversations about their objections with the trump policy. Right now we have had three career diplomats with collectively dozens of years of experience testify on nationally televised hearings before Congress. Bill Taylor Marie Ivanovich and George can't and what's significant about these diplomats who have testified so far you're is that they all are in their jobs because of their expertise in Ukraine matters. They are nonpartisan and they work for you know Republican administrations ministrations democratic administrations. They don't leave when a new president comes in and they follow the policies of that administration. I'm Lisa Ryan and I cover the federal government for the Post. These career employees are kind of Rohrschack test. I whether you're Democrat or Republican because by being nonpartisan and by swearing an oath to serve the constitution the career people are really telling lawmakers how they see things and basically how this kind of shadow foreign policy that president trump and his allies were conducting being was out of the norm during impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton the major players were all appointees and aides. But this this time. Many of the characters at the center of the inquiry are career bureaucrats civil servants and professional staff. I think that the career people are are really relevant relevant. Only because they didn't ask to be in this situation they were not whistle blowers they were not the original whistle-blower they were subpoenaed. They were told by their supervisors risers. This Day department not to come testify. So these diplomats and other career officials have enormous potential to face retaliation. Marie Ivanovich the former ambassador to Ukraine. Who has testified in open hearings said that she felt threatened several times by president trump and she is still take apartment employees? She's going to go through. Some things didn't sound good. I kind of felt like a vague threat and so I wondered what that meant concerned. I mean they could face threats to their security clearance renewal. The government could hold those up. They could be reassigned. They can be removed from coveted national security details and yet they are still coming forward to testify in nationally televised hearings which has got to be a pretty scary the prospect but they sworn oath to the constitution and each of them has said that they feel that the the country's national security was at risk in the Ukraine matter.

"Hot notes all right so a lot of impeachment testimony went down this week to two days worth. We've had on Wednesday we we had George Kent so cute and Bill Taylor testify and then on Friday. We had Marie Ivanovich testify and we already the Went over the bill Taylor testimony in the call and the outdoor call with David Holmes and all that stuff in in earlier episodes daily beans from last week. But let's talk about The Marie Ivanovich testimony because she was on Friday and of course we are last recording was Thursday. And so one thing and I will say you know. And we talk about this quite eighty bit. In in the Mueller. She read episode. which is the the one that came out yesterday? It's the impeachment megapode. We go over a lot of stuff in detail but her testimony was very moving. I felt I found myself. Tearing up in her opening statement talking about duty to country and nonpartisanship and and her decades of service and all that and I thought it was just a Ah just incredible testimony. What incredible witness she was? Yeah Chris Wallace of Fox News even said if you didn't tear up watching or if you weren't moved what was his words moved if if you weren't moved and then you don't have a pulse. Yeah crazy I and that's that's a Fox News Dude. It's Wall Fox News. Do He'll be off the air shortly like that. One Radio Guy who was fired in the middle of his program to hear about that guy though conservative talk radio guy talking about you know. This is the whole impeachment thing and his they shut his mic golf and fired him in the middle of the show. Oh my God. That's so freaking creepy. It's it's so fascist I mean I guess it's a private organization. You can do what you want but damn damn. Yeah but the fact that they're resorting to vats. When you're reporting on fact certain alternative facts? Oh my God so one of the main things that that I wanted to go over with the The from the Uganda which testimony which stood out to me. There are a lot of standout points particularly you know the when trump intimidated the witness in real time via twitter but very important to me was Krishnamurthy's line of questioning Pushing back at the at the GOP a position that she couldn't Maria couldn't have been removed by trump for corrupt reasons. Because she was replaced by Bill Taylor who everyone agrees is a good dude right there like so you think Bill Taylor is Great Yeah Patriot yes is he a good dude yes does he very nice pants yes like just trying to you know. Make the case And this was particularly Castro. I think trying to make the case that look you you you didn't get burned with acid You still have a job at Georgetown and they replaced it with Bill Taylor who you think is not a corrupt guy. So they couldn't have fired. You get rid of you know To get rid of somebody who would fight corruption. Yeah but then Thursday a gap of time between Taylor. Yeah that's what Krishnamurthy talks about. There was a month almost a month gap between her leaving and Taylor taking over and it was during that gap That the inauguration took place Alinsky and that's when they you know trump withheld pence from being allowed to disallowed pence from attending insent Rick Perry instead and it was when Sunland was meeting at the White House several times with trump about Ukraine policy. And he says that one month gap provided the perfect opportunity for another another group of people to take over Ukraine policy so that is very significant. I thought right and and didn't get as much play as some of the more harder hitting hitting moments but I thought that that was very very important. Yeah in a sense. It's almost like it's not personal that we got rid of you. We only needed the gap where no one was in the position. Exactly and and speaking of that gap in time new reporting from the daily Beast says that the White House was eyeing former congressman. Pete sessions for the job. That's according to three people with knowledge of the discussions is Pete. Sessions is the Giuliani ally that Levin Igor made Foreign Straw donations to totaling three million dollars from a pack they funded Trump pack witnesses any impeachment inquiry of said that Marie Ivanovich was being pushed out so she could be replaced with someone more pliable from late twenty eighteen to early twenty nineteen there were discussions in the White House of replacing her. With Pete sessions sessions himself. sent a letter to the State Department on May Ninth Two thousand eighteen asking for the ouster of Uganda Mitch. The same day EH. He had met with Eager live in Washington. DC according to a since deleted facebook post about it sessions has been subpoenaed for documents related to his communications with Giuliani. Donny love eager including their effort to have your von which recalled in the smear campaign. I suspect we will learn more about this. From the testimony of Fiona Hill. Coming up this Thursday Of this week. Because she's testified to two things surrounding pete sessions and sort of the ouster and the smear campaign that that Love and Gore. You know had against Marie Ivanovich and that Pete sessions was involved in that smear campaign Probably because he wanted the job. This is kind of a random note but you know what I found interesting sing in a lot of the testimony from Taylor can't in Ivanovich was how not normal. It is for them to have any direct conversations with the president for for some reason. I always assumed that ambassadors would have like you know sort of more established line of Communication. But when you're talking about someone like Pete sessions that that clearly has his established relationship with the president going into a role that I now know typically establishes a sort of break in that communication in connection and for good reason. I imagine That that that in itself is makes you makes you wonder if the other stuff didn't you know and the protocol call for that kind of thing is to go through the process. Go through the State Department. Go through the Pentagon for things involving military age. Go through so The Department of Justice if you need to do a partner in an investigation and there's none of this happened with trump. Trump sent Giuliani to Enron's around these typical oh US processes to investigate the investigation to to get the Javelin missiles things sorted out to withhold aid. Did it as a bribe to you. Know bribing them with the with the with the military aid to get these investigations on the record. Publicly stated buys Alinsky into a microphone. Put Him in a box and to also these investigations aren't coming from the Department of Justice. The you know. When when trump wants wants Ukraine to investigate 2016 crowd strike server and investigate Joe Biden and Barack Obama and Biden son and PRISMA Zeleski in the you not Dolinsky but Ukraine government was like is this coming from the Department of Justice? No it's come from outside those typical channels and communication and that shop month gap allowed them to set everything up made some Sunlen who's the ambassador to the EU which Ukraine is in part of. Be The point man on this. Take the instruction from from trump himself. Now we know because of this phone call that Bill Taylor testified to that Pete that David Holmes I keep calling Pete Holmes David. Holmes overheard And so now you you just have this sort of shadow not using the proper channels policy and so it's it's it's all of it is just so corrupt and to say you're fighting corruption. It's it it sticks in my craw. Yeah and on top of that the argument that it's appropriate somehow for solid to be involved with all of these things because potentially Ukraine would want to join the EU the The Ir the major irony in that is he's working to facilitate a quid pro quo. That will make it so they don't get the assistance. They need so that they can remain independent enough up to continue on past like that towards their ultimate you know sovereignty so it's it's just so that's such a bad argument to say that he had a place in any of that whatsoever. Oh ever yeah. It's like the whole deep state argument and that Peter Struck wanted to be you know. Get trump make sure hillary was elected. It's like well then. He should have just done. He could've announced to the world. World trump was under investigation. He did not. So you're just so dumb so sunlen testifies this week right. Do we know each day Wednesday Wednesday this is. I think that I'm hoping that the stone conviction if someone of a warning to him. Yeah we're GONNA talk about the conviction after the first break in that'd be blocked because it's it's so relevant right now and so the timing the ripening of the molar stuff at this time not just stone but the grand jury materials and Yeah. You know it's just that it's so it I found site owner plan comes together Accu- universe for bringing it all together and some other news. That just came out. Sunlen is using. What's TAP yes? He is So reporting by the Washington Post is confirming that someone was communicating with Ukrainian officials over. What's APP months before July twenty twenty-fifth that call even happened? But he was also apparently texting with a top aide to Linski Andrea. SHERR MAC in late July on his trip to Keiv right before trump's on July twenty fifth call so the State Department has refused to turn over these. What's at messages to Congress? Obviously and on this trip sunland also met face face to face with your Mac. Apparently State Department officials said he was barred from attending the meeting as a note taker. So they're talking on what's APP. which is again an encrypted script messaging APP and then when they do meet in person the one person that could be in there taking notes is not allowed to be in there so all of this? I mean it doesn't scream backchannel it. Just it lifts says a back channel it it is a back channel In this meeting apparently happened just before. The trump sunland call that was revealed in Bill. Taylor's testimony read right because it was the day after this Alinsky call and so this was like the day before that And you know I know what they talked about. Yeah but this is something else. They should ask something about on Wednesday. Well you know Sunlen omitted the fact that the call existed in the first place. The one that took place on the twenty six is leaving out this whole. Oh texting your MAC on. What's Adam purposefully to have those texts disappear and that's what people use what's happened signal for so that would be another thing that I would definitely Hope to see The Democrat Council. Ask Yeah and that. His name Yes what isn't it. Dan Is it Dan. That sounds like a lawyer name. Diane Goldman Dan. Let's see and Goldman Democratic Impeaching Council MHM Yes dan Dan. Yeah fuck now. I forgot what I was GonNa say we were talking about that. That's that he should ask. Yes about the the. What's up texts totally? I do also think and I'm curious to know your opinions on this too but to me. This is sort of an unfortunate indication of the level. That Ukraine was also involved in these sort of encrypted communications as well. Yeah I have been wondering you. You know. I don't think that they're going to ask any of these Ukrainians to testify. We should be able to get all of this from the State Department But I would feel like like couldn't I mean like how do you. How do you save this chef? How do you go to the Ukrainian officials and say Look Zilenski? Your Mac can you help me. Do you have many of these calls. Do you have anything that you can. Because normally you would go through the Department of Justice to to get those investigations. Coordinated donated the way that Muller did with the Manafort Cooperation in the Black Ledger investigations. And so but does Congress who is impeaching have power to do that. Impeachment is a judicial proceeding. But do they have the power to circumvent the Department of Justice to look into their investigations negations by reaching out to foreign governments for assistance in in in that kind of an investigative situation and I don't know the answer to that. Yeah and if they did to can you imagine the field L. Day that GOP people would have with that just the appearance of them sort of doing their lootings education or whatever to gate trump the eggs. Yeah they would not have good optics no no it would not even though it's the only agree. Yeah it's like the reason the objects are are because people have been fed lies. They believe him. Unfortunately the optics really don't lend itself to any sort of actual wrongdoing but yanks. Yeah it looks like which which is probably best to to either rely on what we have here from Americans in in in the United States and if the State Department is isn't going to hand and over the evidence then that's just obstruction of Congress. Plain and simple pompeo could go to jail for that and and everyone's like yeah bars not going to indict anybody. I'm like yeah but if we vote and twenty only twenty there'll be a new attorney general Goddamn bet the beans kiss her. What did you say? I said he can kiss her ass. Hopefully the the new agey. We'll be all right We will be. We have a lot more. We'll be right back around.

"This is horrific. I mean this is the end of his presidency and then that passes and then another thing comes along this is the worst day and this is the end of his presidency out. David that what home said is absolutely consistent with whatever Republican believes number one and the president cares most about himself ever Republican. Every American has already accepted the fact that no matter what the president cares about himself more than everything else. No newsflash here so when it comes to Ukraine the fact that an issue that is more personal him as the thing he cares about the most. That's a shock to anybody. Brings Your hands seriously. Raise your hand. Your arm Orthez showing all along. Is that the president really cared about corruption in Ukraine. But he does but that's why along that he didn't saying that. That's that's sunlen saying. That's the veterans they don't into the president he's with a bunch of guys who we know this probably is not a big big fan of the president. What he's doing and so that's a whole different thing? The reality is that what what he overheard. Was the president asking a question that he admits in fact he went to the camera. Suggests I care about that. Yes I want this to be investigated. Here's the question is what he's asking. A criminal offense is what he's asking. Listen it is perfectly listed for a president to ask for an investigation about the. Here's what your legal right on the skin you were saying. The president doesn't care about Ukraine. He cares about himself for. I said he cares about himself more than everything else about other number when he cares about himself. That's not doesn't if you're also claiming he cares about corruption Ukraine. Why does he care about corruption? Ukraine clearly cares about the only thing Ukraine on his radar for or the Biden's and the blurred again. Gloria I had a little conversation after after yesterday after our meeting yesterday the other day and Gloria said to me you give the president every benefit of the doubt and my responses I may but you giving no benefit of the down. The reality is but he cares about himself more than he cares about. That's that's true. A lot of great quality and Republicans. Find that to be. You know a very difficult for. Here's the here's the reality to say. The President President doesn't care about their Ukraine Russia. War is ridiculous. He doesn't care about providing aid. He's the only president. Recently that has provided a Do you think the president cares about the war. Because he's holding up aid for the way he cares about it less than he cares cares about the priority that he gave to investigating Nothing that happened. Basically with Joe Biden that he thinks happen. Yes well it's a fact actually but I think I think the idea. It's interesting to hear you say that you know. Nobody should be shocked that the president only cares about himself above all else. I think we actually should remain shocked about that kind of behavior especially in light of what we have witnessed over the last couple days of people who are completely committed to serving their country and watching watching doing what they what he has done to one of those women you know is is really reprehensible and I don't think I'm really I just don't think it's okay for you to say that it's okay for the president to only only care about himself when his job is is literally to stand up for the United States that is his number one job. I don't get anything else I I said he cares most about yourself. It doesn't mean he doesn't care about other things that it was interesting to watch Marie Ivanovich being questioned today by UH bunch of folks who they're serving the country on in Capitol Hill but rebounded which has gone to numerous hardship postings. She certain Somalia. I mean. I've spent a little bit of time there and that is a really tough posting and to the prison United States laid basically blame her for what is happened in Somalia is the most asinine thing I've ever heard I mean Smalley fell apart in one thousand nine hundred eighty two after the fall of the regime and a famine. The idea that the president says Oh look look good avenue smalley after Maria was there I mean is that a I mean this is our person. He doesn't treat people like people like she is a person who dedicated her entire career to serving his country with ninety percent and what he does twenty percent of what he says and this is one.

"US ambassador to Ukraine Brianna veg testified today as part of the impeachment inquiry into president trump. And what she said really got under trump's skin then an update on to unresolved stories one in Kentucky. The other about Turkey and finally how starbucks is escalating. It's coffee game. We're here to make your evening smarter. Let's skim this. The most complicated story today is about a woman named Maria Vich. She's the latest. US diplomat to testify in the public hearings for the impeachment inquiry into President Trump today on on Capitol Hill. She helped provide context on the sequence of events that led to the inquiry in the first place so today. We're going to get into what you need to know about Marie Ivanovich. Why her backstory as the former ambassador to Ukraine is important to the inquiry and how the president himself got involved in today's hearing so who is Ivanovich she was born in Canada but moved to the US when she was three in her late twenties she became a diplomat a career? She said today. Hey hasn't been glamorous. She's had to move thirteen times over her career and several times to so-called hardship posts. A fancy way of saying really unsafe places says like Somalia which was the first place she was sent in August. Twenty sixteen she arrived in Ukraine as the new. US ambassador part of her job there. As she testified. Today it was fighting corruption. Corruption is also a security issue because corrupt officials are vulnerable to Moscow in short. It is in America's national security the interest to help Ukraine transform into a country where the rule of law governance and corruption is held in check. You've also said today that. Her her anti-corruption push in Ukraine made her a target of certain politicians and business. People which she said was not a surprise. What was a surprise to Ianovich? was what happened in April of this year in the middle of the night. She says she got a surprise call from a department official telling her she had to fly back to the. US right away that her time as US ambassador to Ukraine was over quite a bit earlier than she expected and that is the root of why she testified today the circumstances under which he was arguably fired from her job. You've said today as she understood it. There were quote concerned up the street about her up the street. St Meaning the White House because as she told it there had been a smear campaign underway at the White House to get rid of her as ambassador going back to the previous summer. Her One person you've says was part of that campaign was trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. He's the guy who was also pushing Ukraine to investigate former VP. Joe Oh Biden. And according to You von which. Some people with business ties in Ukraine and to of Ukraine's former prosecutors also didn't like what she was up to. It's not entirely clear. Why but the rumors against her started rumors that she was dissing the president behind closed doors or telling one of the Ukrainian prosecutors that he couldn't investigate certain people people? You've Arnovitz denies those accusations. But those rumors they turned into a media campaign against her in the US in the weeks before her Firing articles started popping up saying people in the administration wanted her fired then trump and his son donald trump junior shared those articles on twitter. Ivanovich said all of this marked. A scary new precedent for her or continues to amaze me is that they found Americans willing to partner with them and working together they apparently succeeded in orchestrating the removal of a US ambassador. How could our system fail like this? How is it that the foreign corrupt interests communicate our government? Then this past September. She said she was devastated to read the now. Famous transcript of trump's phone call with Ukraine's new president the phone call in which trump told his counterpart that ianovich is quote. Going to go through some things you've Arnovitz said after reading that she's going to go through some things things. It didn't sound good sounded like a threat to be clear. It's not like the president is likely to be impeached. Just because he fired fired Marie Ivanovich but her testimony today shed light on the origins of the shadow diplomacy. That's at the heart of this inquiry. which is about whether trump abused his power to influence foreign policy for his personal gain and it turns out? Her allegations really got under trump's skin this morning while you vaunt was testifying about trump smearing her reputation trump went after her again on twitter. Saying things like quote everywhere Maria von which went and turned bad shortly afterwards the Democratic Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Adam Schiff asked you bitch about trump's real time taunts now the prison. real-time is attacking you. What effect do you think that has on other witnesses? Willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing. Well it's very intimidating. Shift doubled down on that sentiment. Some of us here take witness. Intimidation varies very seriously. Some Democrats are saying trump's tweets. Today were real time intimidation and could be part of articles of impeachment against trump. If it comes to that so what's the scam. Republicans point out that the president has the right to appoint and dismiss ambassadors. Whenever he wants you von that you even said that herself and she wasn't in her post at the time of the July phone call? Trump asked Ukraine's president to look into Biden but for Democrats. She provided a first hand account of the impact of these pressure tactics on Ukraine which she said have hurt. US diplomacy and security and the president's behavior during the testimony might become more grounds for impeachment. Meanwhile the public hearings continue next week. But the closed-door depositions haven't stopped those are kind and of the fact-finding parts of the inquiry one person who testified behind closed doors today is David Holmes who reportedly overheard a second phone call in which the president trump asked about quote the investigations. So lots more to get into. But you have the weekend to regroup..

We'll be if you've gone. which provides any new information beyond what she told many of these same Congress people last month during closed hearings the transcripts of which were later released? That's what Bill Taylor did. He had something new when he shared second hand knowledge of a phone. Call between trump and ambassador Gordon Sunland it which trump allegedly inquired about I Ukraine investigating Joe Biden and his son hunter but beyond the substance. There is another question. Are you watching live. TV were shipped for Wednesday's hearing was thirteen. Point eight million Ryan which is well short of the nineteen and a half million people who watch James commes congressional testimony in June two thousand seventeen or the twenty million who watched the Christine in Blazey Ford Brett. Cavanaugh hearings last September. In fact more people even watched former trump lawyer. Michael Cohen testified. This past February now ratings don't affect the substance in other words trump isn't guilty of attempted bribery if lots of people watched but innocent of it if no one watches but the reality is that impeachments are a political cool process not criminal and those making the final decisions will be keeping a very close eye on voter sentiment if people aren't watching or reading the subsequent coverage at Axios Axios or elsewhere then. It's unlikely we'll get anything beyond partisan votes in both congressional chambers in fifteen seconds will deeper with axios.

Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani state. Eight to Hartman colleagues say Ivanovich was withdrawn from her post following. A campaign of slander led by Giuliani. who was running back channel operation on behalf of the president to dig up dirt on political rival Joe Biden in exchange for the release of four hundred million dollars in military aid? IANOVICH testimonies meant to paint a picture of a President President who abused his power when it came to. US foreign policy toward Ukraine House Speaker.

President you take that so lightly speaker. Pelosi isn't exactly taking any of this lightly but I am mm say that what is the president has admitted to and says it's perfect. said it's perfectly wrong.

Don Trump cares more about the investigations of Biden Representative Stewart. Finds this to be a bit of a stretch. I find it. I think fairly fairly outrageous the thing that we're going to convict the president based on what someone heard standing next to someone who is having a phone call as for that aid.

He's still there so oh well. Today's Thursday today is a day off from the hearings. They will be back back tomorrow with Marie. Ivanovich or Masha. We should probably call after tomorrow.

House releases transcripts from key witnesses in Trump impeachment inquiry

"We are now starting to see the actual testimony from the depositions in the impeachment inquiry so far the transcripts and they are as damning as expected for the president and and his allies now Republicans wine for weeks and weeks of the fact that depositions were being held behind closed doors despite the fact that many of them were actually attending those very same hearing the president tried to get out ahead of the release of the word for word transcripts today by saying they would be faked and Republicans should release their own indicating indicating that he was clearly not happy with what was about to come out well today we got the first two transcripts from forward top State Department official Michael Mckinley and crucially former US ambassador bastard Ukraine Marie Ivanovich we already know a lot about what McKinley testified about including that he said he resigned his post in part because of quote the failure of the State Department urban to offer support to foreign service employees caught up impeachment inquiry McKinley who was senior advisor Secretary State Mike Pompeo also testified again under growth in this deposition that he told not pompeii about his concerns multiple times before he resigned which makes what pump said last month so much more interesting listen listen to the way the pompeo gives himself absolutely no wiggle room on this question Mike McKinley third me well for a year and a half I chose him my head people tell me he was a great foreign service officer in fact he served America wonderfully for thirty seven years he had in fact had the office that was just just behind mine had a door that he could walk in any time and say whatever he wanted you know from the time that embassador yvonna bitch departed Ukraine until the time that he came to tell me that he was departing harding I never heard him say a single thing about his concerns with respect to the decision you never ask not once not once George did ambassador McKinley say something it to me during that entire time period that's interesting so maybe set it outside that time period or maybe McKinley is lying or maybe pompeo's lying the story though that has has told these depositions of of someone who was in the way of the corrupt quid pro quo abuse of office the President Rudy Giuliani were running to try and squeeze Ukraine to manufacture a dirt the president's political rival particularly in that of the ousted US ambassador Devante vish Ukraine whose career was a casualty of that scheme she testified that she learned from and Ukrainian officials that Rudy Giuliani plan to target her Ivanovich was asked what she thought President trump meant when he said on the phone call with Ukrainian president that she was quote going wing to go through some things Ivanovich said I didn't know what it meant I was very concerned I still am. She testified that a concern senior Ukrainian official told Oldie quote told me I really needed to watch my back former ambassador also told Congress the same Ukrainian official wonder about quote to individuals from Florida Mr Parnasse and Mr Freeman who were working with Mayor Giuliani they were interested in having a different ambassador to the post because they wanted to have business dealings in Ukraine or additional additional business dealings I didn't understand that because nobody the embassy had ever met these two individuals now the president gets to appoint ambassadors and he gets to recall them but in the case of Ambassador Basser Uganda Bitch let's remember her position and removal are also at the center of a criminal case that's currently being brought by the US attorney in the Southern District of New York doc against two men who are associates the president's personal were John Juliani reportedly paid Guiliani at least half a million dollars who hung out Yankee Games among other places with with Rudy who got prime seats at a twenty thousand trump rally and who represented themselves to Congress in an official letter as members of the president's legal team and and let's remember that part of the charges against these two men love Parnasse and eager fruman is that they were giving donations to a member of Congress as part of this sprawling effort to get rid of ambassador of rich so that they could corruptly install from the associates to promote their business interests in Ukraine Ivanovich was standing being in the way of making Ukraine more corrupt on behalf of president trump and Rudy Giuliani and I should tell you we just learned tonight that one of these guys parnasse seems to be ready to cooperate with congressional investigators Reuters reports Parnasse is prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators PARNASSUS lawyer has confirmed that that me see news joining me now from Warren What we learned today so he told me legal reporter for Buzzfeed News and Tasha Berkshire National Security correspondent political NS NBC contributor. Natasha let me start with you on the Parnasse news his old lawyer had been the president's old lawyer John Dowd who'd written a letter being like he's part of the team and he's not going to show up and do anything he's now jumped don't John Doubt and now he's GonNa cooperate is that what's happening. Yeah Chris I mean it certainly seems seems like Parnasse is angry he's angry that the president has said that he doesn't know who he is he feels like the president has completely mischaracterized their relationship and you have to be inclined to believe a bit because there are so many photos of them together over the last two or so years a political events at gallows at fundraisers Parnis and firmin were everywhere and they surrounded the president at many pivotal moments so what we're seeing now is they've opened the door to cooperation with the congressional committees that doesn't necessarily Sara Lee mean of course that it's going to happen because a lot of the documents at the Congressional committees want are in the hands of the FBI which of course rated partisan ferments belongings as part of their indictment it also is remains to be seen whether or not their lawyers are even going to his learned this case has even going to let him testify because he's in the middle of a criminal probe but this does indicate at least a shift for now in how he perceives the president and trump really hasn't learned this lesson that you know when these people are are under scrutiny and he continues to criticize them his former allies and says I don't know them well they usually have receipts Zoe what did we learn today in the Ivanovich Ivanovic testimony in terms of the nexus between this sort of strange plot that was hatched by nuts room in for variety of reasons perhaps APPs personal business reasons as well as Ingraham themselves the president and the president and Rudy Giuliani's attempt to squeeze Ukraine government for for dirt on their political what we saw was perspective from yet another witness in the impeachment inquiry sort of explaining how they learned that there was this other her channel between the White House and Ukraine that was unofficial not sanctioned involved a cohort of non-government officials in this case Rudy Rudy Giuliani left parnasse eager freeman who for months had been traveling around trying to set up connections and Ukraine in an effort to dig up dirt on Joe Biden trying to discredit the Mueller investigation but all while making entrees into very official circles in Ukraine to the dismay dismay of the career civil servants who you know whose job it was to establish those formal channels between the administration and these foreign government entities and what we heard what we saw in the transcript was the former ambassador Marie Ivanovich saying you know learning about this back channel and being perplexed and concerned -cerned by it but not really seeing away out and being told that if she wanted to keep her job she needed to ingratiate herself with the president and not make waves about this both the one in one point she testified she was told to tweet US support for the president. I mean what what's fascinating here and attach you had these sort of comparative means of of of conducting yourself Marie Ivanovich the lifelong foreign service officer who's there who's trying to like steer American policy and then the Parnassus Fruman and Giuliani's of the world old who are wheeling and dealing and taking meetings and doing God knows what God knows who's behest and those are the people president is listening to and who had the imprimature of the entire hire American state behind them exactly Chris and Marie Ivanovich testified that this wasn't something that the State Department could just ignore they felt really hamstrung owned by the fact that this dual foreign policy track was taking place and at one point she said the Ukrainians didn't know who to talk to didn't know whether we represented US policy whether they should be listening to Giuliani and Parnasse Freeman and the rug really felt like it was being pulled out from beneath us we have to remember also that this is a very sensitive moment what what has been a very sensitive moment in Ukraine for the last five years since the Russians invaded eastern Ukraine and at this moment there trying to negotiate peace in the east with the russian-backed separatists separatist so for the aid to be withheld at this sensitive time was extremely troubling to the Crohn's and on top of that they didn't even know who the interlocutors were are there was supposed to be communicating with fast forward to mushy Ivanovich getting removed recalled from Ukraine someone that they really trusted now they have no choice really okay but to try to negotiate with the president and the best way that they can which is Zilenski you saw on that phone call kind of saying to the President Yes we'll investigate ah yes we'll do what you want essentially to try to appease him because again Ukraine faces an existential threat to its east and they are trying to navigate that right now the best way they can we're also getting a lot more back story on the origins of this I think deranged saying conspiracy theories about Ukrainian involvement in the two thousand sixteen election the idea that actually the DNC hack was a Ukrainian op that they conspired to frame Russia for it doesn't actually make sense when you sort of square it up but this this article near that Manafort was actually spreading that back in twenty sixteen it's been germinating and sold to the president time and time again what do we know about uh-huh so over the weekend buzz feed at CNN received a new cash of documents from the Justice Department then it was as hundreds of pages of records of notes that were taken during the investigation and in one seer set of notes from Rick Gates who had been the deputy campaign manager Paul Manafort's right hand man Rick Gates told investigators that basically as soon as news broke in two thousand sixteen the DNC had been hacked that wikileaks had these messages and they were going to release them. Paul Manafort was immediately saying it wasn't Russia it was Ukraine and Michael Flynn who was at the time a senior advisor to the campaign later became trump's short-lived first national security adviser also was immediately saying adamantly it wasn't Russia it wasn't Russia look at Ukraine so we had at the time three years ago to senior officials in the trump campaign trying to you direct the narrative away from Russia towards Ukraine it raises all sorts of questions of who they were talking to us who's ear they had and it's the theory that it has really persisted notwithstanding the findings of the US intelligence community that it was Russia that orchestrated the hack of the DNC that was

Full Trump Impeachment Transcripts Released For First Time

"And we begin with breaking news today the congressional impeachment probe is going public for the first time here is the scene in Washington is house. Investigators are releasing the first transcripts from their high stakes impeachment interviews showing the world what some witnesses witnesses testified about president trump's Ukraine cream clot you're looking at of course that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff he was stepping out to the cameras here to recount damning testimony from the former ambassador to Ukraine and banned from Mike Pompeo's deputy at the State Department as one of the first witnesses to this irregular backchannel that the president establish with Rudy Giuliani the degree to which the apparatus of the State Department itself was being used to seek political information for a political local purpose by the President United States tomorrow we are scheduled to release the transcripts of Ambassador Volker earn a Bachelor Sunland and we will continue to release the transcripts in an orderly way Democrats say this orderly release ace of calls and transcripts and everything they have that is supporting the evidence will ultimately deal with the Republicans bluff and what they say are basically bad faith complaints about this probe and processed thus far democrats say that everyone will then see the same interviews the same allegations the same corroboration of trump Giuliani plot it's so concerned career diplomats army officers and other nonpartisan veterans now I'm going to go through right now just a few of the high points. Today's release provides four hundred seventy three pages of of new testimony and it paints a rebuttal to the emerging argument at trump's Ukraine mistake or plot with some sort of simple phone call or just an uncompleted request that's part of the defense that trump allies have lined up but here you have impeachment witnesses like a former ambassador saying Donald trump threatened her for her objections to that infamous July phone call recounting she was shocked and surprise trump would speak about me or any ambassador in that way to a foreign counterpart the point there is that this diplomat was concerned trump was acting more in concert with foreign interests in this shadow agenda then the State Department she details this by going on and showing how a now famous trump loyalist Mr Gordon Sunlen advisor to address these internal attacks on her by going political saying quote you need to go big or go home tweet out there that you support the president and then all these are lives and everything else well that is improper advice career diplomats do not go oh big on public political endorsements anymore than military leaders do both categories of service members steer clear of for example both parties political conventions engines that's just to avoid any perception that currently serving officials at the Pentagon or state are just political partisans then tonight we can also report report on new testimony about the intersection of this shadow foreign policy plot and the president's shadow communications arm because a Fox News anchor who shared a lawyer with the president whose name arose in the Mueller probe is back in the new transcript out tonight this ambassador details how Sean Hannity's attacks on her and his alleged support of aspects of Ukraine plot made it at the highest levels of the State Department where some officials called Hannity seeking any evidence to support basically these red hot allegations against her the testimony stating that these officials asked basically Fox News. Hey what's going on do you have any proof of these kinds of allegations or not and if you have proof tell me and if not stop press reporting can of course draw any kind of pushback or dialogue from the government that itself isn't automatically suspicious but impeachment investigators are probing the theory that this was part of the shadow foreign policy to hijack diplomacy for trump's reelection fox news itself as rebuked handy for for what you see on your screen his appearance at a trump rally which of course makes them look less like an independent reporter and more like trump surrogate so keep all that in mind when you go all the way back to march on Hannity's show which by the way doesn't usually delve into the names of individual ambassadors to all the different countries around the world but on that show they went in named named check this one you have a Novic and that looks especially interesting given what is coming out today that Giuliani and others were trying to oust her letter surfaced I from a senior member of Congress to Secretary Pompeo accusing the current US ambassador in Kiev a bad mouthing the trump administration we also now know that the current United States Ambassador Marie Ivanovich has bad mouth the president of the United States this woman needs to be called home to the idiots that's unhappy show that's trump's big booster lawyer Joe Digenova and that's what they were saying about the ambassador back in the spring we now know here's why I'm showing that tonight and why it came up in today's release testimony we know that wall does public attacks were occurring Fox News taking a sudden interest in a random ambassador Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukraine plot and that's not all that Fox News Larry just saw there to Geneva who's making that case with Hannity he legally Wrigley represents the conservative writer who was pushing the same Ukraine plot so that's the context for this ambassadors testimony about what looks like a coordinated smear campaign not not only the ouster but to get a bribe out of Ukraine to help trump win reelection now the other new transcript today comes from an aide to Secretary of State Pompeo who criticized the administration for using the State Department for this quote to procure negative political information for domestic purposes and when asked about efforts to quote us the State Department apartment to dig up dirt on political opponent Kinley responds in thirty seven years in the foreign service in different parts of the globe and working on controversial issues ten years back in Washington I had never a scene that I'm joined now by former Federal Prosecutor John Flannery Hawke a former White House and State Department official administration Good evening to both of you know what is the level of significance of these of these disclosures in your view and how unusual are they given your experience to have any of this going on inside the State Department and it's fascinating in a very period reading a political thriller Type Way and it's completely out of line line with how we usually run national security and diplomacy efforts what we're really seeing is how the president and a day by day basis was effectively extorting a foreign in government to be able to advance his own political interests renal damage was a was a career official who's doing her job as best as she knows how she's been trained to do and and Giuliani and his goons that are sick on her to try to make her bend to do the president's specific political bidding that's what we're seeing in the transcript I also find find very fascinating how trump's twitter account has really filtered down to the lowest and highest levels of diplomacy on the same day in which president trump trump there's accounts of how his staff was trying to do a fifteen minute delay and his twitter account suddenly the same day we see a transcript that says an ambassador has to tweet her loyalty and praise of the president is all about his own personal ego and not about the security walk us through what you're getting at there because obviously there are people people are welcome to go out and say whatever they want about great any politicians right people in public life in America the political arm the campaign arm you're saying ah we mentioned earlier in our reporting that the State Department like the Pentagon is supposed to be totally walled off from that and this is the part where we talk about country over party it's actually actually part of the service agreement that Foreign Service officers at the State Department who are the career diplomats military officers over at the Pentagon and the armed force who says they are supposed to be advancing the interests of the country and the policy there is a layer political appointees who tried to steer the ship and the direction that the president may want they're usually work together in concert and not against each other but at no point is it supposed to be praised the dear leader this is what we think it is about praising America America independent whoever holds the White House John Let's stipulate that these officials who many of them we've noted are are bipartisan experience. Say this is terrible terrible bad reform policy people might get fired over it that's all of the policy personnel side but this isn't just that level this is a higher level today these I transcript we've seen tonight ever in the impeachment probe do you see anything in here that hits the higher level of evidence of a high crime yes the thing thing that I was interested in that I didn't realize because I didn't focus at the time when Hannity referenced the Congressman He referenced Congressman Sessions from Texas You may remember that he was the target of the two associates of Rudy Giuliani to receive funds to write the letter attacking advantage so in a moment ago you were talking about kind of the the the rat's nest of how these people are all intertwined gentleman I don't think he said S. maybe I mean I was thinking when you were saying it but so what I see is a connection here and it goes back I like all compulsive lawyers here's I read at least the beginning of Ivanovich testimony and at the beginning of the Republicans who wanted to be in the room we're in the room and they did everything they could to be dilatory into the delay what was going on unsuccessfully but on top of that gave us a sense of what she was going through over there and how they were spreading word that she I was saying some people shouldn't be prosecuted which was ally and this goes back to November of eighteen and coming forward so this is a long campaign and Rudy Giuliani was in there from the beginning as we've learned from other witnesses so I think that th the pieces are here and people fairly read the transcripts all this they saying about could pro quo goes away and all we're faced with bribery and extortion and misconduct but by many more people just talk to John you're saying these transcripts alone we're not up to everyone who was on the call this isn't that part that's not the first hand account of the call the investigators investigators are saying they're releasing as they go but this part you're saying provides what part of the bribery plot well what it provides is we have to get out of the way somebody who would prevent ah rural rudy from doing when he wants to do which is to create the situation for the president to have an easy pass and the twenty twenty election having having them announcing bogus investigate only I'm only slowing you down because there's so much happening here Before I got another lawyer I'm going to bring in with you as if my first lawyer you're saying basically if the briefcase briefcase bribe is getting the Biden investigation some of these diplomats were hearing from now where people in the room who would say don't do that we don't do that and so we're seeing the part of the conspiracy tonight according to these transcripts were first those people had to be cleared out of the room then you bring in abroad yes that's and it looks like they were they were working on parallel tracks but she was always a danger because she was a straight shooter and they he didn't want a straight shooter and they wanted to be rumbling around behind the Green Curtain doing what they were doing both for apparently Rudy's own personal bank account but also oh to help the president get this dirt on Biden and that became especially true in July when he was polling better Biden with polling better in the Democratic Democratic primary opponent both these stay with me as promise I wanNA bring in another lawyer in one with tremendous experience Roberts General Counsel at the NSA senior roles at CIA and Defense Department good evening to you sir a good evening Sir I put the same question to you and without profiling you too much a part of your job is to look at this from the perspective of the Intelligence and security agencies to give you know the tie would go to them typically on your day job right give them a benign nine view of or at least a defense of what happened given your experience in that and you look at what we're seeing in these new transcripts do you see a way that this breaks towards the trump administration or does this look well over the line to me this looks well over the line as a lawyer whenever I hear about a complicated case I always try to put myself in the position of defense counsel what is it that I would argue and I don't see it here and you know the people have objected to to the quid pro quo perhaps because it's Latin a much easier good old Anglo Saxon word is bribery and it's actually mentioned in article two section the three as one of the high crimes and misdemeanors this was an attempt at bribery. Do me a favor and I'll give you four hundred million dollars in military sorry aid yeah you laid out congresswoman Speier who's on the Intelligence Committee making a similar point that you raise their the idea that we are we are looking working potentially here at the allegations of a bribe here's what she said I think that you could make a case for bribery now and I think that discussion needs to be seriously developed and considered because there was an effort to to try to get something of value from misters Alinsky the president of Ukraine Robert how important is it if the Democrats are moving towards making that case and she is on the key committee here that's releasing these transcripts to show that this was a larger plot that there was a premeditated strategy as John and I were just discussing to get anyone who might object out of the room and then

Marie Ivanovich they were deeply disturbed see rudy Giuliani instead of career professionals like Ms Giovanni Mitch handling our foreign policy that's why they went to the White House lawyer the lawyer promised and follow up and take it up the chain of command that was the last eight heard of their complaint the lawyers boss top White House lawyer Pat Sibley owning the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week to call the impeachment probe unconstitutional that was the same letter that declared the White House won't cooperate with the probe going to that White House lawyer didn't help and that may have been what prompted the whistle blower to file a formal complaint through channels that complaint and the rough transcript of the phone call it's about are all democrats say they need to impeach this president many of us wondered why out to the aforementioned Marie Ivanovich might have to say this career professional fired make wave for Giuliani she had been ordered by the White House not to testify even though she didn't work for the government anymore still she testified she defied that order and obeyed her subpoenaed to appear before Congress behind closed doors but mischievous also released a public statement to mirror what she would be telling the impeachment committees she said she'd been removed from our post based on quote unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives she connect the dots for lawmakers by pointing to the two.

Ex-Ukraine ambassador says she was removed on "unfounded and false claims"

"And we're back with the politics lead in a key witness former ambassador Marie Ivanovich right now testifying on capitol Hill after she was subpoenaed three House Democratic chairman saying this afternoon that's opinion was issued after the White House and State Department directed Yovanovic not to appear before Congress Yvonne which was the US ambassador to Ukraine but she was removed from her position in May over what she called today unfounded and false claims she said that she was told by the deputy secretary date that there had been a concerted campaign against me and that the department had been under pressure from the president to remove me since the summer of two thousand eighteen unquote Let's discuss January the former spokeswoman for the State Department during the Obama years you know ambassador von Bitch tell us about her is she a partisan Democrat is she not professional no I I worked alongside her for two and a half years she was in a senior role in the European Bureau when I was there I was visiter as a political appointee most people in the State Department our Foreign Service Officers Civil Servants they've served as she noted in her testimony often many Republican and democratic presidents I would've had no idea what political affiliation I still don't know what political affiliation ambassador rich had or has today you know I will say about her that she he is somebody who took pride in being a representative of national interest in the United States interest overseas she had a number of hardship posts which she mentioned in her our testimony as well places that many people don't want to serve that are difficult because their authorisation governments she went and delivered tough talking points or tough messages when that needed to happen she somebody who respects the process respected the process and the institution and sort of when it was working what that could result in which is things being negotiated and discussed and worked through at a working level before they come to the secretary of state or or even levels right below that that's how it's supposed to work you know I think thing for people to understand our I think it's important people understand is that when you're a foreign service officer at least in my experience being there for a couple of years you're not looking for the limelight you know you're not looking for a moment where you can testify or be a public face or have your face on CNN this is something that they all do reluctantly because they feel it's important it's important third public service so my bed is very difficult for her to put together and deliver today but she felt it was important not just for reputation but for the reputation of the institution. and to kind of be a voice for all the frustration and anger that is felt in that institution and has for has been for the last several years it's all reminds me too of week or two ago when the Inspector General for the State Department went to Capitol Hill and presented what was described as a bunch of conspiracy theories about people that are perceived to be president trump's enemies Biden's ambassador and others and she said today that they're just a bunch of lies that were coming from Xi and see waited I guess that they were coming from people like Rudy Giuliani. I have no idea where they were coming from but but insinuated from president trump's partners allies in that were you know spreading stuff and that's the reason she was ousted because somebody giving president trump all these lies about her and she warned that that is going to be an a green light for other actors who wanted misinformation to make the government take specific actions in this case she's saying that misinformation spread about her by the president's allies and that caused her to be from her post and that's a decision that was very welcome not

"So great product. Okay. Two final points, the Rio collusion here is that Ukrainian collusion with the Obama administration and serious allegations. That Marie Ivanovich Alexandra Chalupa, the DNC and others are knee deep in this whole thing in an effort to launder information to the Ukraine into the United States, while US tax dollars are going being funded to fund the group associated with George Soros. Now do the attacks on people who exposed some of these Soros connections by people like media matters and others make sense. Yeah. Joe, I know, you know, exactly where I'm going with this folks, you may have missed it. But a couple of months ago. Some Soros story started to break Soros has been a liberal mega donor for a long time the liberal causes which is fine. I don't it's perfectly legal George Soros to donate to liberal groups. I'm not a speech suppression tyrant like, the Democrats we exposed in that first story about their new illnesses. I that's fine Soros can do whatever he wants. But it's also fair in a free society to be able to report on what George Soros does what is money. George Soros is not a protected class. Now, a couple of months ago, a lot of these stories started to come out. And all of a sudden, the lunatic clown show, it media matters and other people out there there were these liberal groups saying why you can't attack. George soros. This is an. Anti semitic. And everybody started about what Joe what do liberals do every single time? When liberals have no substantive rebuttal to an argument, and they don't this story now is coming from Ukraine in a credible outlet Solomon has done. Excellent work the Ukrainian effectively, their attorney general reporting this story himself. This is a credible. Whenever you're over the target, the liberals will cry racist Zena fall. Yes. Misogynists the phobic, xenophobic, phobia, phobic, transphobic, homophobic, islamophobic. Foca phobic is the that's all these imbeciles have nothing else. They don't have anything there. I q sub sixty. They don't know what they're talking about. So they had nothing on Soros, except to the fact that Soros is Jewish. So they said these are anti semitic, ladies and gentlemen. These are substantive critical analysis of a liberal mega donors role in potentially a Hugh. Huge foreign collusion scandal. If you could indicate to me how that has anything to do with his religion at all. I open Email me I love to hear it. But if you think for a second for a moment for a sliver of time, you going to intimidate me or other people on the right who have the right, this, free speech and talk about other people's speech. You are insane. Matter of fact, we're going to double down now. And we're going to talk about it.
