"Died much into the world of a cooking wild game and fish. Yes yeah. I have gotten into cooking a lot more over the years right away. I mean i would go hunt like like geese canada geese and i would shoot them fund shoot. Now then i'd be like crap. Now we gotta eat them now completely turned around. Now it's It's actually really interesting. I always so. I'm not a big wine drinker. Alcohol in general but which But i do know enough people who like wine and i know that wine You know it's an acquired taste. There are a lot of little tiny little flavors in wine Tell you about how the wine was made. It was made of and so on. And so forth and i compare that to wild game especially ducks so all the duck species they have different diets. And where they you know migrate to or the area that they live in. Even each individual dock of the same species can sometimes have a little different flavor. And so it's really interesting. The more you eat while game the more you can tell the differences between The you know the different species of duck and you get to enjoy You know that game year taste of duck or geese or whatever species that you're hunting even big game you really enjoy the you know the wild flavors of it. Because it's i mean it's all edible matter you having you know being able to put it down but but i like i like that analogy the wine the different varieties and flavors found in wine in comparison to like doc and and other game. But yeah more. I more specifically especially duck man. There's so many different flavors and you've got people it's like nope. I don't wanna drink wine. Don't wanna drink more low. I don't wanna do that and people don't touch mcgann's i don't touch duck. I don't you know there's so much variety out there and yet people it's like it's all it's all all eat exactly and the best part of it too is if Epa duck doesn't taste the best or any any game species doesn't taste the best just raw. You know like like you cook it up. No seasonings on it. You try it like you can really learn what how to best conquer that flavor that you don't like you can knocked flavor right out of it. I mean i cook duck sometimes like the the Game easier species that i like Diver ducks or seahawks even They have a really strong flavor. But as long as you like saute onions and mushrooms and put in some good in it and really cook it in it for awhile. you know. Origin dice Or you can marinate the doc Either teriyaki or anything else. You can even marinate it in wine red wine and There you go. I mean so there retiring wine and wild game back together. We'll circle have you ever you ever eaten much am lope like pronghorns. Don't think i've had antelope It might be primorac. Might be the only species that i haven't had yet like north american species but i wanted to put it. Yeah you gotta put on top of your list. it's a. It's one of my favorites. It's like kind of a. It's become almost a yearly yearly pursuit to get it. But it's it's funny. I was up in wyoming and you know the one of the local guys is in the store wearing a gas station. Wait in line news like how you doing you know told me about my hunt and everything. And he's like well next year brings some buddies shoot twelve of them. Can't stand those things. And i'm just like i think they're great but they just have this. You know some people have this perception of measures like nope. I'm gonna pass but It it makes me think back to like the very first time i had an lope and i was preparing it. And everybody's like you got you got to you. Have to overcome that sage kind of flavor. That's know that's a lot of their diets primarily the sage and they're like it's it's really strong and i was like whoa so we. Do you find something that compliments sage. I mean it's it's pretty. It's pretty easy to find things that you can pair with sage. I mean you like think about Recall it like cornbread dressing or or stuffing all that you put sage in that right. So what are some of the components that are in just that one dish like then all of a sudden you start playing around with it and through a lot of research. I found Not a lottery search but through some Found like yeah. Citrus pairs well with antelope so like or orange juice. Lemon lime like things you wouldn't normally think would be in in the central plains it all but hey you know what it works and it not only does it sort of move past that flavor that some people may not like it. It enhances the taste of the meat. So yeah it's one thing that's that's the fun part of Cooking wild game as you. You really want to go in the field harvest. Something and then be able to eat it. You know it and you to it almost makes you like if you go to the store and you have the choice to get something. That's like super flavorful. That you really enjoy or like a less enjoyable piece of meat right And i'm not. I'm not saying that You know that's that's up to personal preference on what each individual likes but when you go out and hunt something and if you're passionate about hunting and you love the thrill
Michele Mouton, Queen B of Group B
"Yeah. So today we're discussing Michelle. mouton. A woman. We've this is this the first time we've discussed a woman on the show. This might be the first episode dedicated to a lady. which is a bit embarrassing. I would say so yeah. But no better woman to start off this trend with and Michelle. She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best. Female driver ever. She's one of the best rally drivers at. Yeah. Regardless of gender she's one of the greatest. and honestly like just watching a video of her rally driving makes me sweat. Over, yeah she's like she's the person who when we talk about. Like rally cars now are all-wheel-drive. Wheel drive. But when Audi showed up with quattro and just started smoking everybody that was Michelle. Meantime that was young Mouton Bay. mouton on the track. Yeah I mean. To your point James like drag racing of course is or was kind of dominated by women at one point all the force sisters were just tearing it up. There's really no reason. For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series. At I think that's more for them to kind of get exposure and it proved themselves in like a formula car but I'm looking forward to seeing some of those drivers come up in the formula. One. Soon hopefully, it would just make it more interesting for crying out loud if nothing else I agree let's get into it a. all right. Let's fired up. All Right Michelle Mouton entered this world on June twenty third nineteen, fifty one in the French Riviera more specifically the idyllic town of grass cross grass Ross. The Idyllic town of Gross France, the perfume capital of the world grassi surrounded by fields of aromatic flowers and home to Francis. Oldest perfumery GALLIMARD. Look I'm friend by far French is the language that I have the hardest time pronouncing both words and names I apologize profusely to anyone with a modicum of sense of how to pronounce stuff I. Think you're doing great. I think I think here like right there. Thank you, Joe, unlike many drivers whose family have a history in the sport returns family made a living growing roses and jasmine for the perfume industry mouton spent her youth skiing doing ballet and excelling in school. But just beyond the flower fields sat the mountain. Stages used for local rallies and wouldn't be long before the engine notes trickling down into the valley beckoned to Michelle mcgann discovered her love of cars at fourteen years old when she would steal her father. Pierre's Citron to seavy and take it out for joyrides. Quote for me at the time a car always meant freedom and independence she said but driving wasn't something she could possibly see a future in it for anyone to envision that path for mere enjoyment to making something your life's purpose but you could argue this especially from. Models for women on the racing stage were few and far between. So after graduating high school Bhutan took up odd jobs working as a ski instructor, a Care Assistant in a home for the disabled and eventually at her father's insurance company until she began studying to be a lawyer but something unexpected would quickly put an end to that career path her entry into a competitive rock and roll dance contest.

"Seven Democrats wrap up their final day of arguments in the impeachment trial of president Donald Trump ABC's Erin to Turkey has more on the developments and what comes next Democrats have made their case in exhausting Republican Lindsey Graham what's a repetitive detail I don't know about you but it became mind numbing after awhile I got the general point you're trying to make the fourth time you tell me so they're over trying their case on the third and final day of their presentation democratic prosecutor Adam Schiff warned president trump would continue to abuse the power of his office unless check by the Senate merely exposing the present scheme is not stopped him from continuing this destructive I don't know behavior that has brought us to this summer moment he is who he is that will not change and nor will the danger associated with him every piece of evidence supports that terrible conclusion that the president of the United States will abuse his power again as Democrats prepared to see the podium to the defense congressman Jason crow anticipated an argument from the president's legal team the aid was released and investigations whenever announced so therefore no harm no foul right well this defense would be laughable if this issue wasn't so serious the president's attorney Jay secular will begin making the case for acquittal on Saturday we're gonna rub pot and review I'm gonna put on an affirmative case tomorrow and we're at the capitol now with ABC's Monaco's Robbie Mona the focus shifted from abuse of power to obstruction of Congress did towards the end of the house managers making their case about the abuse of power they started talking about this alleged cover up they said president trump as you play that clip I tried hard to cheat he got caught and then he worked hard to cover it up and that is when they began talking about the obstruction of Congress we heard the house managers say that the White House achieved an unprecedented level of stonewalling in fact arguing that the president may have set a dangerous precedent by defying those congressional subpoenas and now they're argued that transactions were the worst nightmare of the founding fathers and if left unchecked could further lead to corruption of the office again we heard a lot about orchestrating a cover up we heard from Congress woman Sylvia Garcia who said not only did the president orchestrate that cover a but he did it in plain sight first by refusing to turn over the whistleblowers complained then by ordering the executive branch and not to cooperate in the inquiry they also stress that the White House blocked certain are members of the administration who are testifying in the house inquiry from even obtaining it documents that might help to help them prepare for that testimony they played a clip from even bass record and someone who I'd made that claim more he said repeatedly stated that he cannot access documents that could have helped him refresh his memory now odd the president's legal team is currently arguing that the house could you could have taken those issues concerning subpoenas to the court and we heard from a representative log Lofgren's you use pointed out that at the time at the same time from his own department of defense in the McGann case is actively arguing that the court should have no jurisdiction and forcing congressional subpoena so kind of trying to anticipate the job presidents defense's argument regarding the obstruction of justice charge and that will all start tomorrow when the president's legal team will

House lawyer says President Trump could be impeached again
"Attorney for the house Judiciary Committee suggested Democrats made drafted new articles of impeachment against president trump if the new evidence comes to light the revelations come as part of court documents as part of the ongoing fight over the testimony of former White House counsel don McGann let's find out more now with ABC's Erin to Turkey up what additional charges are they looking out or are they even getting that specific so far now they're they're they're they're not looking at any additional charges this is really far and it comes with so many if but in a court document that was filed Monday as part of the ongoing fight over the testimony of former White House counsel done again a lawyer for the house of representatives suggested the Democrats may recommend new articles of impeachment if new evidence supporting the conclusion that president trump committed impeachable offenses comes to light the the the house committee said that again testimony remained urgent and maybe he has some additional evidence of the president's alleged struck obstruction of justice how long can they keep keep the investigation just open ended yeah I mean definitely not really open it that's the thing has nothing to do with the impeachment inquiry that out just went through nothing this is about done again the former White House counsel in testimony the house Judiciary Committee has sought since some other dates and I think that the lawyers tying the two together and saying okay if he testifies we find some things well then you know we'd go weekly you know perhaps you know taken a look at another article of impeachment but one is wholly separate from the other end and so I don't want to confuse everything this is a big series of if the court hello I'm again to testify if he says something that you could give up with critical conduct if the Judiciary Committee decides to pick it up at if they somehow get another article of impeachment I mean it sounds almost yeah I like I said it sounds really
House says it needs Don McGahn's testimony for Senate trial and because Trump could face more articles of impeachment
"Tonight House Democrats saying they're open to impeaching president president trump again. The House counsel pushing for testimony from former White House Attorney Don mcgann in federal court in federal court filing today arguing. His testimony is critical article as it could lead to new new articles of impeachment. This comes as the justice. Department is arguing. The court should stay out of the fight as impeachment is already going on Shimon Peres out front with with with much more on this first. All folks are going to a second impeachment. Are you serious but what is this all about. It's really about precedent for Congress. This is all about being able to get information formation that they believe they are entitled to and in fact some federal judges and this is why this is now in the appeals process have cited with Congress Saying saying that the president is not immune from the scrutiny. That members of Congress have put him now that he's under now because of the investigations In Congress so there are two things going on here and the first thing is is that the judiciary committee which has been looking into the entire Russian investigation the also the obstruction of justice. The extension of the Muller Investigation. They still want the Don mcgann testimony and they still Don mcgann to come in and testify. Obviously for Don mcgann He doesn't they WANNA do that. He's waiting to hear how the courts ultimately decide. But what makes him so important. He was one of the most prominent witnesses in the entire Muller investigation certainly certainly as a related to the obstruction issue. He spent thirty hours with Muller. There's a lot of information that you think that he can provide the other thing is that they want this information because they they say that it could help them in their process certainly in their impeachment because of the they say this shows that the president his past in previous interaction certainly when it comes to influence from foreign countries and also the obstruction issue. And so they're saying they need this information to all now. Obviously in the Appeals Court We'll see they do say as you point out that. Listen if there's information that they can get Regarding began that they can use That could potentially can lead to more Articles of impeachment. They would do that politically. I don't know if that's going to happen. But certainly the lawyers for the for. Congress are suggesting that that that could possibly happen to see you. Thank you so much all right. Everyone's back with me Corey. You've got I mean I don't know Carr Heads GonNa idea idea like more articles of impeachment coming forward but before that happens. What do you think of this that? The House has the need mcgann's testimony because it could lead the new information that could lead to more articles of impeachment. I really look. I think we absolutely need another article of impeachment on obstruction of justice. Mr Muller outlined ten instances the report of obstruction of justice. And the only reason why he didn't file criminal charges against the president is because they're a department of Justice memos that say were wrongly in my opinion that you can't indict diet sitting president but Hamilton and others who supported that idea of immunity. It was a controversial idea. Even at the founding people disagreed with it his point was that the reason for the immunity eighty is that impeachment has to come first that it's a constitutional obligation to remove criminal president so that he or she then can be tried after removed from office and the assumption was of course. That
House Dems raise prospect of new impeachment articles, in court battle over McGahn testimony
"We're back now with the politics. Lead House Democrats insisting they still need the testimony of former White House counsel Don mcgann because their investigation into whether president trump obstructed justice continues and could in theory lead to additional articles of impeachment that is in response to a filing overnight from the Justice Department which argues the courts should avoid weighing in mcgann while an impeachment. Trial is pending. WanNa bring a CNN senior. Justice correspondent Evan Evan. DOJ also saying that since hence the articles of impeachment do not include obstruction of justice. which they want to hear from Don mcgann about his testimony is irrelevant at this point? Does right Erica in the articles of impeachment. There's only one cursory Sort of reference to the mother investigation. And and that's one reason why the Justice Department says that the courts first of all should stay out of. It's been their argument for for some months. Now that the that the court should play no role in a fight that is between Congress and the White House but The heart of this says the importance of all of this big question which is can. The president give absolute immunity to his close aides. That's what the president is arguing that these people don't even have to show up to To in response to a subpoena from from Congress in this case Don mcgann who as you know it was a was the former White House counsel and was unimportant Horton witness in the obstruction of justice. Part of the Muller investigation well and the houses also arguing that it needs muller grand jury secrets to show in the Senate impeachment impeachment trial President Trump's pattern of soliciting interference and obstruction right. Exactly that's the one reference that they make in the articles of impeachment that have already been approved proved but the question here is you know what does this matter for for any other parts of the of what the what the House Democrats are doing. And I think what the courts are struggling ogling with And you know certainly what the administration is trying to exploit here is the fact that the Democrats have have already voted for these articles of impeachment. And the answer is from the House. Democrats is we can always impeach him again. Essentially we can add more articles of impeachment In addition to the ones that have already been approved. Be Interesting to see how that would would work. Evan Perez appreciate it as always. Thank you C. N. N. legal analyst Joe Jackson back with me now. So let's start with what we heard from the Justice Department. These arguments again filed overnight tonight to those arguments. Water depends who you ask the panther you sitting next to write from a department of Justice Loy. Eric I'm going to say absolutely they do. They carry the day but let's just try to evaluate it objectively. I think the core clearly has a place here. Why you can't on the one hand argue that you know what mcgann is absolutely immune? He's not going to go to Congress because I say so. If you don't like that go to the court okay. So then we go to the court and then you get a district court ruling that says that presidents we elect them. We don't elect kings or anything else. He has to testify. But if there are specific issues that you feel a privilege that you feel fall into illegal exception he could cite that at the time of his testimony and and then of course now you say well no. It's going to impede upon what we're doing here. I don't think it's a credible argument. Look as long as we get paid to make arguments we get paid to support clients and what they want us have as do as long as those arguments we call frivolous meaning. They have no merit but I think at the end of the day. It's really not a legitimate argument to make that the court has no place. It may impede upon the impeachment proceedings and therefore hold off. Hold the phone. Don't do it. I just think that Da. No I do I mean what. What else is it's it's it's been complete stall? We know that Congress has a responsibility and that responsibility includes getting information from the executive so to your point in terms of Congress has a responsibility the the house we just heard is saying. Listen part of the reason that we need to hear from Don mcgann is that we are not done investigating and there could be more articles have been preserved very well may yeah I mean it's premature right. I think they have to get through this. There's been an impeachment. We'll see what happens now. The Senate trial in terms of whether there's actually more evidence and information and facts and will all those facts. Erica actually matter but sure I mean look if you do something that's impeachable. The House has a role to ferret out what that is and to the extent that mcgann has critical information that that he has not conveyed because he's being held and not to testify. I think the court should make a ruling. They should proceed. You think they should make a ruling just quickly do you think mcgann again and other important. Witnesses could be compelled to testify. I I don't see it. I mean I think they should be but at the rate this is going. Are you talking about the Senate trial for purposes of the Senate trial. Well I think that's completely in the arm of one Mitch. McConnell the Senate majority leader. I think he'll call the shots
House Democrats Announce Articles of Impeachment
"The House Democrats announced two articles of impeachment against President trump including abuse of power. Judiciary Committee Chair jerrold Nadler made the announcement is an impeachable offense for the president. Is it into exercise the powers of his public office to obtain an improper personal benefit while ignoring or in injuring during the national interest. That is exactly what President Trump did when he solicited and pressured Ukraine to interfere in our two thousand twenty presidential election thus damaging our national security undermining the integrity of the next election and violating his oath to the American people the second article relates to obstruction of Congress. Democrats alleged president trump prevented at least nine officials goals from testifying and blocked the federal government from sharing documents with lawmakers joining me. Now Is Wall Street Journal reporter Chaban Hughes Chevron what can you tell us about. Democrats strategy in narrowing down to two articles of impeachment against the President and Democrats had a couple of big goals. They wanted to keep their caucus together and they wanted to present a case to the American people that was clear and muddled both of those goals. Help explain why. Democrats limited their articles of impeachment only to focus on obstruction of congress and abuse of power. For what was left out was a charge of obstruction of justice and what's significant about that is obstruction of justice. Is the charge that would have covered did donald trump's actions as detailed and special counsel Robert Muller's report and that report. Mr Muller painted a picture of a president who obstructed justice on at least five occasions according to an analysis by Democrats and others that includes trying to get then White House is counsel Don mcgann to force Robert Mueller out of office to basically take him off of the probe and then in other cases to try to get Mr Muller to narrow his probe that focused only on future meddling and what happened in twenty sixteen for a lot of Democrats especially the thirty one democrats in the district's but Donald Trump won. That would have been a bridge too far it would have been a stretch. Some of those Democrats had said the only reason they were willing to vote for articles. Live impeachment this time with because of the Ukraine probe. Not because of anything that had happened before. And then and that's he Pelosi wanted to keep her caucus together. I'm glad you mentioned that. Because of course this impeachment inquiry is proceeding against the backdrop of heading into the two thousand twenty elections. And I'm curious how much that plays into to the calculus here in terms of which articles to seek and how for Democrats are willing to go here. Democrats have publicly stated that their their motivations are not at all political that they're acting out of a desire to really stand up for the constitution. But it's pretty clear that electoral L. Politics are certainly in the backdrop and that it does help. Democrats limit their risk by focusing only on two articles of impeachment. uh-huh it inoculate them from charges. That Democrats are broadly negative against Mr Trump and are willing to throw an entire book. Look at him without thoughtfulness consideration. Chaban as we look forward to potentially seeing this on the House floor. How might those electoral politics play out out there? Well in a couple of ways most prominently. The politics will play out in terms of the number of votes that has democrats amass. Nancy Pelosi has a reputation for never bringing something to the floor. That won't pass. She said unless you're passing legislation or resolutions. All you're doing is having a conversation but there is still the risk that some of those thirty one democrats could break with her. So what we are watching for are the numbers of Democrats who ended up defecting and then both parties have been saying that the Senate is unlikely to impeach the president we would need a two-thirds majority they're exactly and Republicans have fifty three votes in the Senate compared with forty seven for Democrats. So what this means is a full twenty. Twenty Republicans would have to side with Democrats and vote to convict the president which is why that seems unlikely. Now Democratic senator. Chris Murphy gave a very very interesting interview last week in which he said he thought as many as five Republicans might side with Democrats and vote in favor of conviction so that would show a party. Hardy rift that would be significant but clearly a far cry from the numbers needed for a conviction. If President Trump Wall Street Journal reporter show Von Hughes keeping keeping us up to date on all the impeachment proceedings
