"Noon session the former special envoy to Ukraine that testified he should have realized as many of his colleagues did the president trump was holding up military aid to Ukraine to pressure the country to investigate political rival Joe Biden public testimony before the house impeachment inquiry Kurt Volcker said he understands now thanks behind side in the testimony of other witnesses that trump was using the aid to pressure you crane to investigate Biden's son hunter and his role on the board of the Ukrainian gas company berries meant but Volker insisted he did not know of the push at the time despite his deep involvement with Ukrainian officials and drafting a statement never released that would have committed the country to investigating berries Maya end of the two thousand sixteen US election Voelker said that he did not make the connection until after Rudy guiliani trump's personal lawyer mentioned the allegations against Biden during a July nineteenth breakfast poker said he was aware that Giuliani was promoting a negative view of Ukraine's president he described the meeting he and others had with trump last may he said the Ukraine was a corrupt country full of terrible people he said they tried to take me down in the course of that conversation the reference conversations with mayor Giuliani it was clear to me that despite the positive news and recommendations being conveyed by this official delegation about the new president president trump had a deeply rooted negative you on your crane rooted in the past he was receiving other information from other sources including mayor Giuliani that was more negative causing him to retain this negative you Volcker testified alongside former White House national security official Tim Morrison both witnesses were requested by the committee's Republicans Morrison heard trump's call with Ukraine's president and said he then asked the national security council's legal adviser John Eisenberg to restrict access to the record of the call the democratic counseled Goldman for the impeachment committee asked Morrison about the call you we would agree right that asking a foreign government to investigate a domestic political rival is inappropriate would you not that's not what was all we recommend to the president discuss now in its second meeting with Mr Eisenberg would you recommend that he do to prevent the call record from leaking I recommended we restrict access to the package have you ever asked the NSC legal adviser to restrict access before now did you speak to your supervisor doctor Kupperman before you went to speak to John Eisenberg now did you subsequently learned that the call records had been put in a highly classified system I did and what reason did Mr Eisenberg give you for why the call record was put in highly classified system it was a mistake he said it was just a mistake there were there was administrative error the impeachment hearings resume tomorrow morning at six AM Pacific time with this session that could be explosive it will be devoted entirely to Gordon Sunderland the US ambassador to the European Union Simon's viewed by Democrats as the least credible witness so far much of his testimony is conflicted with other aids recollections and documents and he's already updated his testimony once tomorrow afternoon to lower profile witnesses Laura Cooper a defense department official and David Hale the undersecretary of state for political affairs will appear the week's testimony will close out again on Thursday with testimony from Fiona killed the former top National Security Council staffer handling Russia and Europe as well as David home say Kerr of the days state department official who stepped forward only recently to report new information about the scandal KPFA is providing live gavel to gavel coverage of the impeachment proceedings and you are listening to the evening news on KPFA in Berkeley KPFK Los Angeles K. F. C. F. Fresno online at KPFA dot org Mel Goodman is an ex CIA agent who's been following the hearings he used to work the Russian desk at the agency and is author of C. I. A. an insider's account of the politics of been halogens Goodman told Mitch jester itching cap Brooks anchors of KPFA is live impeachment coverage but he's unhappy with part of what's been transpiring not with the efforts to hold president trump accountable with an impeachment process but with the zeal of those defending Ukraine from Russia who appear as he puts it to be re writing the country's national security policy yeah you have the testimony of two state department officers actually three state department officers who referred to Ukraine as a strategic partner of the United States ambassador Vinogradov talked about Ukraine as a force multiplier in our military policy and George Kent talked about Ukraine as a future member of NATO well let's stop a minute that was mentioned today as well and Alexander in man okay confirmed that that angel member security decision making group got together and elevated Ukraine to such a high level international security posture this is exactly how we got into trouble in Eastern Europe by this expansion of NATO that made no sense whatsoever the nineteen nineties and now the chickens are coming home to roost we head east European member states who are adopting a far Terry in the government look at what happened in Poland and Hungary and if we're going to make you crane point of confrontation with Russia we could possibly have be headed into military confrontation do crane will always be taken seriously by Russia it is in a sphere of influence for Russia the Kievan Reuss origins of Ukraine and Russia common to both Moscow and and Kiev and it's important to keep in mind what's at stake here in this deterioration of the trump presidency but I think the long term danger is that we're increasing the confrontational position vis a vis Russia and we're elevating Ukraine to a status that they don't really belong in and that the strategic partner they are not our strategic partners what does that mean and strategic partner and why are they on our Ukraine on a path to NATO membership true that red line a long time ago an angler Merkel talk George W. bush back from bringing in Georgia and Ukraine into NATO and two thousand eight and remember that short war that was fought between Russia and Georgia in the summer of two thousand eight and it was clear we were prepared to do anything about that we had a very timid reaction justice in twenty fourteen frankly land prudence these Crimea and took up occupation of eastern Ukraine there's nothing really we can do about that so eat to me mindless and foolish and dangerous to take on these obligations that we have no way of enforcing operationally we we better be aware of our own limitations and be aware of Russian sensitivity about violations of their territorial zone of influence that long term danger is trouble be impeached he will not be convicted but then we'll be stuck with this long term relationship with Ukraine at the strategic level which will worsen our relations with Russia and will never get back to the serious issues of arms control and disarmament issue series issues of non proliferation of cooperation to denuclearize Iran and North Korea where Moscow and Washington have mutual interests and agreed positions I think this is all being lost in this debate over whether or not trump was engaged in bribery and extortion Mel Goodman director directs the national security project at the center for international policy in Washington Russia's foreign ministry said today it was returning three Ukrainian naval ships at the Russian Coast Guard seized nearly a year ago Russia claims the Ukrainian ships had violated procedures for traveling through the waters of the Ukrainian said they were traveling in international waters the twenty four Ukrainian sailors were detained for ten months and returned home in September as part of a prisoner exchange Ukraine's foreign ministry said regardless of the ship's return Ukraine will press the case against the Russian seizure of the ships and an international tribunal Russian president Vladimir Putin informed French president Emmanuel macron about the return of the Ukrainian ships in a phone call Monday the Kremlin said in the call the two leaders focused on the upcoming meeting of the leaders of Russia Ukraine Germany and France to discuss a settlement for the

"Never going to, play football. Again he has a hard time walking very petty That was a big deal they're trying to Get players, to stop using the helmet as a weapon and stop leading with their helmet and to get them to leave with their shoulder problem with that is that the shoulder in the helmet or very close to each other players are having a tough time getting their. Head all the way out of the, way and a. Lot of people are saying. It's physically impossible There have been a lot of life so far in the preseason we'll see how it. Legislated during the regular season but what's happening here is Who in the league because. Of concussions and CT I, mean, there's a lawsuit. Going on league is losing millions of dollars now they're making, a rule to fix the. Issue and now players are saying well wait a second we can't play football the way we wanna play, this, fair get, rid of this, rule and I think what the NFL. Is probably going to do is. Go to the court and, be like look you? Know they're suing, us but we're trying to make a rule we'll try. To fix the problem they don't like the rule. How can they sue what we're doing the best. We can and now they don't want it so I think this. Is going to they're trying they're probably the league. Trying to get some leverage The situation Well I'm sure it is as Jimmy trainer pointed out in. Sports. Illustrated okay I, see this but can we have just a teeny bit of? Common sense there's gotta be some judgment used in these calls I mean completely ridiculous calls that took place. During week two of the preseason he called it Yeah the only thing I, can think is that the NFL is doing this on purpose taking it too far, on, purpose, hoping the players. Complain that they can use that complaint against the players in court say. Look we're suing. Us they're saying this the the. Sports is safe enough and it's. Our fault we're trying to we're? Trying, to fix it now they. Don't like that very inconsistent how can they do this. Court hi, this case has no married that's what I think is going to. Be very careful Sounds like you've right as always How about those Oakland a.'s dude Unbelievable they still tied for first. I haven't followed over the, weekend there there one game back but they they took two out of three. And a half who were birthplace They just keep winning every series they play their at amazing story So you know we were talking you and I, are a while back about the. As and as they caught fire And been playing. So well but, we were, still kind of thinking well they could easily get a wildcard. Probably but not, the division and now with you know after Houston hit certainly seems possible they could win the division Yeah Houston has been like a five. Hundred team for about two months now they seem kind of gaffe from their World. Series Ryan last year teams rarely repeat in MLB if a lot of games a lot of baseball their best player Jose altuve as hurt so all. Of a sudden they kind of came, back, to earth in the in the eighth, have winning may have. Been as in, the Red, Sox have been the two best teams the past two months So it's been, really interesting like they have no pedigree. They're a bunch of young players have no idea how they would play in the. In the in the postseason but for the past two months they've been extremely professional a consistent excellent it's been really interesting And let's see. Any thoughts. On. The Niners this season Any thoughts on the Niners, this season so far overseeing the preseason Jimmy Garoppolo grid, and the rest of the team is not so much So it'll be interesting to see how many wins he's worse on, his own because he's worth a few it seems yeah There's still twenty. One other guy that have to help him out looking Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay he's the. Best player in the league he was four and three last year before he broke his collarbone and without for the year so. There's only so much you can do if your quarterback and then eventually you get hurt if you're, only happened Aaron Rodgers so it'll be interesting to see how much of a. Burden is on Jimmy Garoppolo shoulders is here and I don't really care to talk about the Vegas raiders at. This point. So The hell yeah that's not necessarily the great, grant cone Dr hall of Famer from your press democrat always a pleasure my. Son Always, a pleasure okay.

"We'll put him in again and he's in there twice media, consultant author he he He served. On George h.. W.. Bush's campaign is Florida, field director and was a presidential appointee, to the, department of defense under. Then secretary of defense Dick Cheney he is a great friend Rick, Wilson. Hi, Rick Good afternoon, sir how. Are, you All. Right I'm, doing. Well thanks cool Well, you know, who's not doing, that well as Rudy. Our man Rudy that was wild man that. Was incredible. Yesterday on meet, the, press That was a pretty rough day I think for especially for. Those, of us, who worked for thirty? In the past, and I knew, who saw the mayor. Of the two thousand in the nineteen nineties Up close and personal and you look at the performance, over the weekend you know honestly it's going to go down as one of those Things that gets the public, immagination for, a, while and see the definition of is is moment I think, it was pretty uncomfortable for. All parties although Chuck Todd seemed to. Be, enjoying it he was I've never seen him laugh so hard on the on the air yeah Chuck Chuck did seem to get a little bit of a of of a of a of, a gigawatt And why not Yeah The truth is the. Truth What what was he? Trying to say to you Where do you was desperately looking for a way to get out of a conversation where where where the reality distortion bubble that works in. Trump's universe isn't gonna work with Bob more courtroom it isn't gonna work and a lot of. The of the circumstances that that that might get you might, get away with it on Fox News at my you might get away with it on, talk radio on certain poke from talk radio stations but you're not going to get away. With it, with people who've actually look the facts you? Know the facts are are about to face Trump, is about to face off against yeah Rudy said no it isn't truth through this and. Truth That's the official line It sounds a lot like a freshman. Philosophy class gone wrong With all due respect I hate to think about this guy but, a lot, of people are talking about the possibility that it's you know early dementia or something because he just seem so Yeah I couldn't speak to that but I'll just say that a, lot of people, that that are infringed, with Phil worked for Rudy over the, years we all keep in touch and and you know the last, couple of, days after the moment of like oh my gosh Faded, everyone was just Where did you go? With your legacy If you're Rudy Giuliani And you're you're you're reduced to doing, things for Donald Trump a guy who you can't tell the truth with his He was beaten to death Buyer so it's it's. A difficult situation I get I, get it for, the, mayor, but you know it's it's it's it's savvy is doing it in service to a man who's gonna throw him. Under, the bus. As well yeah no doubt that's. Probably coming at some point What else as far as. The, weekend of. Tweets and such on your mind I mean this. Is this is. What happens Trump on supervised. For more than a few minutes he starts. Tweeting he starts saying crazy things things get more and more out of control and that was obviously having this weekend and it was obviously a moment, that that was not good for. Legal because he's out there poking on water different bears that don't need poking he's. Out there making, a lot of claims that will now be liable for scrutiny and of course this is what. This is? The side of how deeply for detached she is from the entire From the entire Management structure of John. Kelly's White House this guy does. Whatever he wants when you go, up to low is it John? Kelly's White House any more though that's hardly You know what. Really struck me today was Malania Trump is speaking about anti. Bullying on the social media networks and Trump is back at the, White House bullying people on social? Media at the same time And there's no question No, question that, Donald Trump's you know social media Is is that is that direct opposition along you Trump's statement that she wants? To serve as somebody who, is going, to help Reduce the the bullying, online and. Reduce the. Tensions of people online and try to and try to make the social media space a little more civil not not not not gonna start until the guy at the top Because Because his call from his wife to, say, hey straighten that stuff out because you're, not you're not. Behaving it'd be best. Lifestyle she did say at some, point I guess it was over the weekend or recently in an interview on TV that She has told the president or, asked him to not tweet as much as he does but obviously good luck yeah Exactly The great GOP, strategist Rick, Wilson Dr hall of Famer back with. Us What. Else what else is what am, I missing, here there's just so much it's it's It's such a full weekend obviously the Manafort trial starting to, wind down yeah and a lot of these. Folks that that are on the Trump Friday ready to declare Manafort doesn't get completely convicted it's the end. Of the? Russian investigation tangential, to the Russia investigation from? It right now cause. Of it We're we're clearly in a recruiting a moment where where the Trump folks are very nervous. About what's coming They're also very nervous because no, matter how many sweats and. Bluster how much stuff you know. Rudy or j.. Secolo comes out and says investigation, must end on September. I need. This, other other stuff none of it none of it changes where we're we're Robert Muller's headed he's doing Methodical serious professional investigation they're going gonna continue to do, so we're, going to knock down these. Bowling pins one at a, time and some are going to be closer and. Closer to the president I think as we go forward to be couldn't something that. Is unavoidable, for Donald Trump in the next the next, few months because he's clearly. You know he's gonna fix these. Things and as. We've all seen his reaction to, them is pretty it's. Pretty unhinged Yeah as I always say I think, I've probably, said it to you before. It's a great time I, have a talk show that's all, I can say Absolutely absolutely here lifelong Republican GOP strategist you. One of the never. Trumpers you came out against. Him in two thousand sixteen Yup One of the first I believe in the GOP at least from my. Knowledge Pretty pretty early adopter let's put it that way I didn't I didn't sit around and. Wonder sit around and wonder This, was the right thing to do when I tell pretty quickly well out of those sixteen or however. Many folks were running on the, GOP side back then Always wanted to. Ask you who, are you supporting was, there anyone in particular I was supporting Marco at first yeah and went, on the options kept getting reduced and reduced reduce but you know that was clearly my He was clearly my first choice 'cause I, you know afford a guy Bush guy too I thought Marco at the time had a better chance. Of. Of ending up producing a, a outcome not only? That was favorable in terms? Of going up against Hillary Clinton, but, but but also an outcome that would end up with some. Leadership that was, optimistic and Ford okay Yeah A lot of my conservative friends back then were when I was bitching about. Trump They would say I hope Marco gets it I think. A lot of my friends felt that way to that that was not an uncommon, that was, not an uncommon scenario back then I think with in terms of of you, know I think, he could have had a lot of cross party appeal and right and we never we never quite, got there just, because Donald Trump's sucked all the air out of, the room and and you know, it's certainly the kind of thing that you know it's a counterfactual now coulda shoulda but at the end by. The way I would've I would have. Stuck with any of them including Ted Cruz and for me that says a lot Yeah Rick Wilson's new book is. Cool it's everything Trump touches. Dies Republican strategist gets real about the worst president. Ever you gotta check out the book, folks GOP, strategist Rick. Wilson thanks as always my. Friend we'll. Talk thank you for having, me.

In, torture and also lying about it Extremely critical during the Obama years when a Brennan, broke, into the computers of the Senate intelligence committee said that it would be beyond the frame of reason to think that the CIA would ever do anything like that Well Do he's the one who ordered the lawyers to look into the Senate intelligence committee computers to see how much they knew that torture and abuse men tried to pull documents out of their. Computers I wrote a piece then saying that Obama should have a real.

Members at, the hands of a gunman the Boston Globe invited newspapers across the country to stand up, for the press with editorials today and several began appearing online day earlier nearly three hundred and fifty organizations pledged to participate they included major dailies like the New York Times the Chicago sun times and the San Jose Mercury news Eric guitar.

Big newspapers such as the New York Times the Denver post and the Chicago sun times as well as, regional papers Boise weekly editor George, Prentiss printed his aditorial on Wednesday he says the divisive language Trump uses about the. Media is a ruining a key pillar of democracy and so his rhetoric has to, be addressed Sometimes even, the simplest of, messages to be said or in this, case with, great clarity no we're not your enemy whenever have, them we've never will Prentice says as an editor he was reluctant to react to the resident but. He eventually felt the need to because of Trump's unending pattern of attacks on the media Trump frequently is called the, press the enemy of the people and fake news about three hundred fifty newspapers had joined this. Effort as of Wednesday Prentice praises the, Boston Globe for coordinating this effort because it allows. Papers big and small to stand together this was extremely unique not necessarily a clarion call from the Washington, Post the times Los Angeles Times that list. As much credence as big a platform to a, small newspaper as it does to, the most famous ones Prentice says important that each paper is writing an editorial, through its, own Lance because people look at and.

Liberty depends on the. Freedom of the press and that cannot be limited without being lost or James Madison who said that the freedom of the press is one of the greatest bulwarks of liberty and can never be restrained but by despotic governments this resolution also condemns attacks on the institution of, the free press and views the efforts to systematically undermined the credibility of the press as a whole as, an attack, on, our democratic institutions the White House didn't, immediately react To the, Senate vote but President Trump was undeterred by today's show, media solidarity he, tweeted quote the.

Unhappiness with the proposed sentences which they characterized as lenient Kramer also said al-maeena failed to adequately express remorse Former CIA director John Brennan said he believes president Donald Trump's campaign. Colluded with the Russians and the president revoked his security clearance to silence others who might dare to challenge him in an opinion piece, published in today's New York Times Brennan, cited press reports as evidence that Trump's. Claims of no collusion were hogwash he said the only, question now is whether the collusion that took place constituted. Criminally liable conspiracy Trump is linking his decision to revoke Brennan's clearance to special counsel Robert Muller's investigation into Russian election meddling. And possible ties to the Trump campaign in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump pointed to Brennan as, one of those he believes is responsible for the Muller probe the newspaper reports Trump called the investigation a rigged which hunt a sham and, went on to declare and these people, let, it he added so I think It's something that had to be done democratic Texas congressman walking Castro told CNN Trump is acting like an authoritarian it's a clear abuse of our and it's a Mark of authoritarian, dictator really, rather than a democratically elected president of the United States John Brennan. Issue is, that he challenged thin-skinned president of the United States Mel Goodman directs the national.

That workforce keep your head down do your blocking and tackling do your, work I'll take care of this other thing and that was really a great step yeah that was impressive Melanie Morgan, former morning, news host here no Mel Goodman I wondered why Melanie Morgan Our. Our good friend Mel Goodman who's with, us all the time has some questions. He, has a question. He, just, texted us do you believe. That Trump has. Been compromised by the Russians You know We looked for explanations for the president's behavior and and it's an easy hypothesis to to say compromised and blackmail. And coercion and. So on I can't work from the back end of the problem. Forward I'm an Intel guy, I need to work from the data towards the conclusion not from a, conclusion and now coming back towards data and so I am Bob Mark comes out with evidence about. That if, and until he does that I do not want to make that my apotheosis with regard to to what's going on right now so. I I just It is not cowardice I think it's actually a? Good judgment I I guess avoid even speculating about that I. Think the president's on. A course that's harmful to him his presidency and to, the country and I'm happy to offer my advice with. Regard to that if there's, something darker there that's the job of the special counsel to discover for, Mel Goodman former CIA longtime analyst etcetera another question do you support John Brennan's view of treason on. The part, of Trump I, know and respect John John is a tough Irishman those are not, my work, and I, and. I did. Not use those were right I have I have concerned but I look You can probably tell from our interview here but certainly when. I'm on CNN. My only. Credentials for you're, talking to me My. Talking on TV is that I've got some experienced, a lot of Americans don't have no kidding. I'm kind of. Fact witness if if you. Just want people with, strong views you can grab a lot of different places. I respect John I know why he's concerned, I share those concerns but I just don't think it useful at this time Express the. Concern in in that way. And by the way you know I'm troubled by, what the Russians did but I go out. Of my way. Of saying I know the. Russians affected the vote, but I can't if I can't measure how they affected So that that question is moot, we don't need to talk about it anymore Donald, Trump is the legitimate president of the, United States let's. Move on and talk about his presidency All right well amazing stuff from General Michael Hayden the book as the, assault on, intelligence American national security. In an age of. Lies timing. As I said couldn't. Be better it's an honor talking. To you and I hope we can do. It again general Steve enjoyed it very much thank you. Very much all right have a great.

"Go at another loyalist will be brought in practice probably Fox News is, now interviewing candidates for who will be chief of staff since stocks news is supplying so many officers and? Principle officers to the Trump administration So you have to wonder what what, will America be in. The international community what when we talk about international security? What will the interests of the United States be and how do we. Protect our, serious sovereign interests when you have a president who is. Totally oblivious to what American policy is all, about and American history in terms of international security architecture this is a sad indictment of. Where we are right now I agree as I always liked to say move your mouth way down south and kiss you ask it by I'm not. I'm, just blown away by all this so much oh yeah no it. It really it doesn't mean, it's surreal none of this makes any sense when he praised food for this incredibly good idea I. Thought that's madness I mean that is defining deviancy down he doesn't have any understanding of what Putin just did too yeah and there is a skillful pay cheap Former KGB operative. Who's, been. Basically, the head of. State for over twenty years. In Russia who saved Russia from bankruptcy when Yeltsin was telling the Russian economy you. Knows exactly what he's. Doing very cool very coy very clever. And you've got an amateur like Donald Trump standing up there. Alongside, of him again this is an embarrassment Jeez Mel Goodman what a, guy he's been doing so much for so many years he worked as an analyst at the CIA the bureau of intelligence there's so much I can't we, don't we're out of time otherwise. I would. Run down, his whole resume four seconds to plug, American-carnage the words of Donald Trump I turned it. Into, the publisher last month Now I. Hope now. That city. Lights we'll get its act together and try to get this book added service possible well this is the one that they. Had what the CIA had to go through He's won the. CIA, cleared in in one week oh the, other one was whistle blower eleven months So okay well we talked to you pretty much every, week, so. Can't wait to hear how the book situation is going and we'll talk. About, talk, about okay Mel thank you. So much as always. Thank you Steve to be with you likewise four.

One vehicle into a ditch and we see that stage gold's backup pretty gnarly and now it's backing up old adobe road almost all the way out to freighter road westbound. One sixteen stage Gulch is backing up now all the, way beyond what Ma so that is not a good alternate route right now, if you're heading into route of Petaluma via the back door and north one zero one.

"I've never seen so much intelligence information in terms of sources and methods given, away in this way and then you You have troop Trump basically defining deviancy down by saying Putin is a pretty powerful and forceful guy and he even came up with this incredibly good idea about. Trading off investigators And allow discussions with the twelfth who have been indicted as long as they were allowed to talk to Bill Browder and others who. Apparently have broken laws in the. Russian system it was just an unbelievable performance topped only by the end when he had to go back to attack Hillary Clinton right racist campaign he's. Still on the campaign trail I don't think he knows who he. Is and he's certainly doesn't know that he's the president and it really compromises his role of commander in chief I can't imagine what the professional military believes this is all about I just wish I was still at the national war college where I. Spent eighteen years are still at the CIA where, I spent twenty four years due to an understanding of how hard this is hit, them big because this is a real attack it reminds me of that day, after his inauguration when he went out the CIA and spend in front of That memorial wall right with the novice stars of people who've given up their their lives that was disgusting It was a disgusting performance and this was even more disgraceful disgusting than what we saw that day, at the CIA for him to be doing this on foreign soil standing, up there with flat Amir Putin a former KGB h it who is a master at dissembling and saying. I believe, basically every word that comes out of his mouth and actually to be outperformed by Vladimir Putin you know when you look at Putin's introductory remarks the way he went through. The bilateral agenda disarmament of non-proliferation of, implementing, the IMF agreement doing something about not putting weapons in space he really has some things to. Say actually that have. Been lost in the shuffle of this. Bizarre performance and surreal performance by Donald Trump this is sad spectacle let me quote the New York Times they said when it came to Moscow meddling in, the two thousand Sixteen election Trump said people think it's Russia I have President Putin he just said it's not, Russia I don't see any reason why it would be also although international, affairs was expected to dominate the session the president turned again and again as you referenced to defensive his. Own political, legitimacy and I quote it's a shame that there can even be a little bit of cloud over my election victory the hell is he doing talking about that he's still. Obsessed basically with the crowd at the, inauguration, right and his election victory and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and you know the thing I. Will never understand is. How a country that elected and reelected. Barack Obama turn around sixty three million votes and elected Donald Trump How we could go bro Whatever you think, of Obama's politics is policies but look at the decency and the intelligence and the good humor and the decency of the man and then. Compare it to this person this malignant narcissist who obviously has a terrible problem with impulse control who is been covering up all sorts of contacts between people in. His, campaign and the Russians obviously a lot of people are lying. About this and is latest the Dighton means that the walls are getting. Closer to the Trump administration so I think that's. What he is nervous about the question that really is baked today is what do the? Russians have on this man because I think it's the only explanation for the way. He's treating blood Amir Putin nothing else computes to me other than the fact that he's been compromised and I don't, know if it's money laundering even though I suspect that it is. Or it's this campaign cooperation and when we finally get, that indictment of Roger stone Which I think. Is just a matter of time maybe we'll learn something Our dear friend Dr CIA guy Mel. Goodman back with us Just hours after these two guys met American prosecutors brought charges..

"Favorite people Mel Goodman he's a national security and intelligence expert worked as an analyst for the, CIA and the State, Department taught at the national war college Johns Hopkins University is a senior fellow at the center for international policy. Mel how are you Oh I don't really know how. Am after this Surreal. Experience today the bidding more. Shocking. More, extraordinary more embarrassing more disgraceful bore unusual yeah Yeah that's it I can't compare. It to. Anything. You know there have been controversial summits we all think. Of Munich nineteen thirty eight yeah a lot of people talk about y'all to nineteen. Forty-five this one was just more bizarre. Than anything else we've ever. Seen Every Monday. We, talked to. One of our congressman Jared Huffman. In DC after he flies back after. The weekend and at one point. Today we. Were. Discussing this earlier and he said I have run out. Of hyperbole we also talked to Lawrence Pfeiffer you probably know him I don't know that name he, was well he's Brennan Yeah and he's national security and. Intelligence expert director at the. Michael Hayden center. For intelligence No I don't I. Don't know, him well he he just he. He said was basically what you just. Said I mean. It's just like it's beyond belief I. Don't. Even know where to begin I'm speechless lemme lemme just turn it over to you Well I think the first thing that strikes me because you have to compare this. To what he just did in Europe the way he talked to, our European allies expose the way he attacked again it's interesting the, two women who. Were heads of state may and Merckel something about women just. Brings out the worst and Donald Trump I guess, he is a bully and so he feels they're. Vulnerable but to go after Merckel in may two of our closest allies Britain and Germany it means the. End of American diplomacy in the international arena and I think in terms of the long term I don't read much into. This term world order Henry Kissinger love to use the term world order because there's really more, world disorder than there, is, order but. There is international security. Architecture, and the United States has played the leading roles since the end. Of World, War Two when you think of. Nineteen forty five to nineteen fifty five. And you. Think of the seven you'd think of NATO The, Marshall plan the general agreement on trade and tariffs you look today with the United States walking away from the Iran nuclear core walking. Away from the Paris climate accord walking away from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the idea that it's not America first America alone and then to, cozy up to. The Russian leader in the wake of the Justice department essentially. Indictment of twelve more Russian officials these are GRU, military intelligence officials who are obviously involved in a. Covert action giving Vladimir Putin plausible denial and then you hear the president of the United States saying well. I have my intelligence our Dan Coats telling me one thing but I got a very powerful and forceful response from Putin. And essentially he believes Vladimir Putin on this issue where there is incredible evidence the likes of, which I've never seen Gene you know. The the intelligence community usually does not permit the Justice department to release this kind of very detailed. Information that's based on very sensitive, intercept material this is really giving away our sources and methods when we do this and I was involved in something like this in the early nineteen eighties you'll remember when the Soviet shot. Down the k. l. seven and the Justice department, wanted to make a case based on American intercept material and they were permitted to declassify, this, information and when you look at. The intelligence community assessment of what the Russians did in terms of the hacking the penetration attack, on democratic. Process their intelligence tests that was rather bland in January twenty, seventeen, but this indictment there's, nothing bland about this and it's amazing, I read the twenty nine page indictment in terms of DT..
