"It's great to have you with us here. On a Thursday night and we begin with the whistle blowers complaint at the center of the storm in Washington the center of this new impeachment inquiry involving president trump that complaint now made public tonight and what it alleges saying some White House officials tried to cover up the call with the president of Ukraine trying to conceal the transcript of the call on a separate highly secure computer system at today the Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire was in the hotseat asked why he held onto that complaint for so long why he went into the White House before Congress. He defended his decision today but he also acknowledged something else he said the whistleblower did the right thing and he acknowledged that when he learned of that that phone call between president trump and the new president of Ukraine he knew this would escalate so was there a cover up in the White House and what President Trump said just today recording now now emerging closed-door meeting earlier today comparing some of the White House and that whistle blower despise. ABC's Mary Bruce Lead US off from the hill tonight today. On Capitol Hill the Acting Director of national intelligence grilled he was the one who kept the whistle blowers report under wraps for weeks going first to the White House else instead of Congress today. He defended that decision. Don't impress you also defended the whistle blower. I think the whistle blowing did the right thing. I think he followed the law every step of the way you don't have any reason accused them of disloyalty to our country or suggests. They're beholden to some other country sure absolutely not the whistle blower claims multiple. US government officials informed him that the president of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign. We're in country in the two thousand twenty. US election the whistle blower goes on to describe the president's phone call with the Ukrainian President Vladimir Leninsky just yesterday today the White House released the transcript of that call and it showed president trump asked the Ukrainian president to do us a favor and later urged him to investigate his political rival. Joe Biden pressed today. The acting director acknowledged the whistleblowers account did in fact match that transcript. Would you say that the whistleblowers complaint is remarkably consistent with the transcript that was released. I would say that the whistle blowers can complain is in alignment in Mint with what was released yesterday by the president the whistle blower goes on to say that some White House officials were deeply disturbed by the phone call and the likelihood they had witnessed the president abuse his office for Personal Gain and the whistleblower alleges senior White House officials tried to cover it up. He writes that senior. White House officials had intervened to quote lockdown all records of the phone call especially the word for word transcript adding officials said they quote directed by White House lawyers to remove the electronic transcript from the computer system in which such transcripts are typically stored and put it into a separate electronic system that is otherwise used to store and handle classified information. The whistle blower says one official characterized this as an abuse of the system and that other trump transcripts scripts had been hidden before the whistle blowers complaint was submitted to the Intelligence Communities Inspector General who then determined it was credible and of urgent concern but the acting director refused to forward the complaint to Congress instead acknowledging today he called the White House I even though the complaint was about the president and she went to the White House I so you went to the subject of the complaint for Advice I about whether you should provide the complaint to Congress. There were issues within this a couple of things one it did appear that it has executive executive privilege if it does have executive privilege is the White House that determines that I cannot determine that as the director of national television's but in this case the the the White House the president is the subject of the complaint but many Republicans were not having it and I want to congratulate the Democrats on the roll out of their latest information warfare operation against the president but while blasting the Democrats there was little defense of how the president handled that call one Republican again with this stark message concerning that conversation. I want to say the president. This is not okay. It isn't that conversation. Station is not okay and I think it's disappointing to the American public when they read the transcript and he's not alone. A growing number of Republicans are voicing concerns after first reading complaint Republican Senator Ben Sasse with a warning for his own party. Publicans ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons and say there's no there there. There's obviously lots. That's it's very troubling there so let's get to Mary Bruce. She's live up on the hill where she has been all day in Mary. The acting director of national intelligence was also asked whether he discussed the whistle blowers complaint with the president and he also acknowledged today. He doesn't even know who the whistle blower. He's David even. He says he does not know who this whistle. Blower is and when pressed repeatedly. He refused to say whether he's discussed this matter at all with the president saying those conversations are privileged dave tonight members of Congress say they expect to speak with that was a blower. Sometime Soon David Mary Bruce leading US off tonight. Mary thank you and at the same time the acting director of national intelligence testifying on the hill president trump was in a closed-door closed-door meeting with staff here in New York City and he was unleashing the recording now emerging from the event with staff from the US mission to the UN the president compared White House officials shows who allegedly talked to the whistleblower despise and then he said something else that reportedly shock some in the room about what used to happen despise ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran at the White House as his acting director of National Intelligence testified on Capitol. Hill this morning behind closed doors president trump was venting to the staff at the US S. mission to the UN in an audio recording obtained by the Los Angeles Times. You can hear his frustration building at the whistle blower NASA inside the call then talking about the whistle blower sources in the White House. His thoughts turned violent out of the game to you gave information because that's plus from spy in order. We used to do in the old days smart. It is in the old days. Spies and traitors were put to death later returning to Washington. Trump talked again about today's hearing deploying a familiar phrase. Yeah just a little bit of this on television. It's a disgrace to our country. It's another witch hunt here. We go again but then this a wish and maybe a strategy to derail the whole impeachment. Inquiry should be a way of stopping at maybe legally through the courts but they're going to tie up our country. Terry Moran Live at the White House again tonight interior. You heard the president president. They're making that suggestion late today that he might turn to the courts to stop this impeachment proceeding what you can do that well David. He can't stop it in the court. That's a battle to fight in Congress but again slow it down or even sabotage it in the courts claiming executive privilege to stop his aides from testifying or preventing documents from being released the White House now gearing up staffing up for a long legal and political battle ahead this coming so suddenly after the people here including the president didn't thought they'd put the threat of impeachment behind them David Terry Moran at the White House Terry. Thank you and one more note on this tonight because there is a mystery now who in the White House was alarmed by this who spoke poked the whistleblower what did William Barr no if anything at the Justice Department and now tonight this reaches the State Department to because in the whistle blowers report he writes if multiple the US officials who were deeply concerned by what the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani was doing the whistleblower saying Giuliani was circumventing the national security decision making making process to engage with Ukraine officials to relay messages back and forth between Kiev and president trump so I wanNA bring. ABC's Martha Raddatz because Martha Secretary of State Mike Pompeo it was asked today did the State Department ever instruct Rudy Giuliani on what to do and if Secretary Pompeii was certain that there weren't any impropriety within the State Department here's what he said to the best of my knowledge some from what I've seen so far each of the actions that were undertaken by State Department officials was entirely appropriate Martha Secretary Pompeii was you know city hadn't fully read the whistle blowers report which is now public. We all have it but that he knows of nothing done that was wrong at the State Department well David Data's what Pompeo was saying but the whistleblower says State Department officials including two embassador had spoken with Giuliani in an attempt to quote contain the damage to US national security purity and that those officials met with the new Ukrainian administration to quote help Ukrainian leaders understand differing messages they were receiving from official the US channels on the one hand and from Mr Giuliani on the other and David Tonight in a new interview with the Atlantic Rudy Giuliani is saying saying it is impossible that the whistle blower is a hero and I'm not and I will be the hero when this is over David. Martha Raddatz Martha Terry in Mary. We thank you all tonight in the meantime the other news.

"Would be valuable to both groups is that right about the latter part as well. Yeah, absolutely. I think that there's so much that millennials can learn both from the movement building that was happening in the time, and also trying to experience of living through such such a pivotal moment. It's three and also you know as as you alluded to not to repeat the same stakes. Any kind of word because the truth is some extent the kind of culture of the boomers, succeeded in, in making a world where a lot of liberal social values cream. I mean we live in sort of dark times politically, and economically, like, in terms of just sort of having ever Martha, Terry local systems and economic system around the world. But I don't think anyone would argue that we don't like that. That's there's been so much social change in the last. Fifty years since the sixties that like. In so many civil rights victories in since since then, from, like same sex marriage becoming normalized, like pot being legalized over the United States and other jobs to like the way that the workplace have changed to be so much more casual. Things like the movement and black lives matter movement, which is sort of partial filled social movements. But, you know, like when I my parents have boomers as I said, I think they would have identified the fifties or calculator and might my dad is always saying. You know, he's always saying. So you never would have thought that policy legal lifetime. You never. You wouldn't have imagined that, that marriage illegal just seems so far off back sixty. The rumors were very successful in that regard, even if they were sort of, you know. Unsuccessful in aiding any economic transformation towards a more. Progressive. Like less charity canonic system, and we will be right back after this with more of our conversation with Keith Spencer. This is Richard J asking what you're listening to zero hour..

"We're back in February twenty thirteen the few between Martha Terry and Ron went to trial. So the civil courthouse in Manhattan is that courthouse you see on law and order with those talk Collins, and you walk up the marble steps. And then you go through Security News one of my first times in a courthouse. So as mazed, and you go back to this beautiful courtroom Lear all passing back and forth lifesavers, and when we would hear good bet would be like. Elbow one another. This wasn't a jury trial. It'd be up to Justice Geoffrey owing to rule which is kind of surprising. These cases typically end in settlement before the trial started Henny and Martha Stewart were willing to do mediation and Macy's what they wanted to bring this to trial. Terry was livid. Terry was mad and Terry wanted to get to get both of them. The courtroom was packed with journalists Justice oiling, his the Justice overseeing this from the state supreme court is sitting up on a little kind of podium in his black robes. You've got the witness box to aside. And that's where Martha Stewart's going to said, that's where Ron Johnson said if these kind of pews, which is where the reporters said ninety got these crowds of lawyers because each company has a corporate law firm with like very expensive, lawyers who are working incredibly hard in this particular loss. All right. Remember, those lawyers? There were lots of them combing frantically through stacks and stacks of papers. The whole thing. Felt in looked dramatic like a movie reenactment of a court case. But when Terry Lundgren took the stand the atmosphere in the courtroom changed suddenly felt less like we are watching a court case, you know, with adults and companies and business disagreements it was clear to Terry Lundgren. This was personal totally personal he testifies that he thought he and Martha were friends, and that he thought he and Johnson were friends, and that this just cut him that Martha would even think of going to penny. Terry long runs a little emotional. He testified about how he found out about Martha's deal with JC Penney. And he told the story of how he hung up on her when she called him. He testifies I was completely shocked and blown away by what she was saying to me. It was so far from anything that I could ever imagine. I was in complete shock, and I was totally disappointed. And he said he said, he couldn't comprehend this because pennies is direct competitor to Macy's in his mind. This is such a betrayal. The his. His his gal Martha would jumped ship to pennies, and he says he felt sick, and he'd never hung up on anybody in his life, and he hung up on her with us. Just the beginning. Ron Johnson's emails were entered as evidence they are projected on a giant screen in the courtroom for everyone to read and let me tell you. They were something else one. Exact emails him. Sounds like Macy's pretty unhappy with the Martha deal does a sad emoji. I love by the way that this is like interoffice Email between like very high level people. And there's like like an unhappy face emoji. He loves it. He loves to see Terri squirming. He writes, we put Terry and a corner Johnson writes Terry might have a headache tonight. And then he writes to one of his executives wait until January twenty four th which is his big presentation about pennies new plans, it will be a full on my grant and the executive Ritz back. I think Terry is more likely to race pass migraine into Grahn mal seizure. Ha ha the later the judge when he's writing his decision. About the Penney's. Macy's dispute writes about this and says like these executives are so absurd. Like, a clearly they were acting in bad faith this. This really goes to my theory that adult life is really the same middle school. It is and like imagine all of this happening in middle school. Right. And you're like arguing over Martha Stewart and Terry and Johnson and your your pals or like, yeah, he's got a migraine like, yeah. To seizure, it almost feels like people are gossiping like, oh, my it's like I saw Martha hanging out with JC Penney. Think something's going on? All right. The cheating answer is. Yes..
