the economy I guess we have to save America from that somebody who can help explain what is the logic of the political elites today is perhaps one of the greatest writers we have today a classicist in his own right senior fellow at the Hoover Institution you've seen him almost every night on television he is professor Victor Davis Hanson professor welcome to America first thank you grab the bastion I'm you've written a piece of the fabulous website American greatness called top get trump forever having read it it raised in me a very simple question I see the president's defense team doing sterling work this week we have fabulous America's scholars such as Alan Dershowitz we have former especial councils like Kenneth Starr who have given very solid lectures lectures I would've enjoyed in graduate school very professorial very fact based the history of impeachment and I thought to myself why is there anything that the president's defense team could say that would change the minds of those who wish to remove the duty elected president from the White House are only for the fact that there's four five senators are there is maybe thirty or forty house members who are you know they have been aware of political reality and are in need of states are congressional district don't wanna can put a cold from the congressional district I put my fault publican lost in a Democrat one Republican is one name is way ahead poll hello I I think that's the only thing it's not about actual crimes it's for a variety of one complex reasoning across town wait until November because I take very agreed upon probably blooms Alexian inn for about eight years of the progressive project pretty much junk for generations and they're just not just one tap on powerful so we go to all these **** drummer do not moment calls twenty nine month Michael Kohn Michael I'm not a tax returns impeachment you were just never yonder worn out because the outlook the alternative Sebastian I guess it's Bernie Sanders on the stone for the new green beer or revelations are apologize for young speech by a little more we don't have much our angle control of the catastrophic miscalculation the ball could be able to stay home and I love should clue without thank you hello they may get and then when I got to lose they're not they called while com there do what we did and how it's gonna be bipartisan and you go do whatever we want the United and they will come and get you look knowledge just giving a call out the kitchen sink speeches always been practical moves on on and I'll talk to quit cold cold creams and broadly our public schools the abuse of power right in Congress but that didn't go anywhere and then made a really crowd because your mistake and betting everything on Adam shell because the more you hear in the less you like it he appeared on the number you can't tell the truth and he's been caught so many cons non and I don't think they want I really don't think they want because I think they want to end on Friday and then say it's really a good we did get a chance to call witnesses but the downside I don't think Adam Schiff wants to go up there on the old and then have the whistle blower band on all give Mary versions of how this functionality because are not compatible with talking to press a Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution all for all of of the case for trump you need to read this book you you built your career as a historian historian of military history of of of the ancient civilizations of of the Greeks this is the bedrock of western civilization then let me ask you a very simple question that is my concern there is this theory of of social contract that there there are written and unwritten ways of doing business and and and western civilization is built upon them if one of the two parties in the system not a fringe party not the Libertarian Party not not Ross Perot but one of the two party says that we will impeach the president because we count we in the at the ballot box isn't that the shredding of the social contract or even the original call product on which the Republic was founded what what does this do on the long term for the United States professor Hanson well I think if you read our federal sixty five and sixty circle how we can serve them and other essays at the time about impeachment I thought it would be very where very hard to do that's one name that tune because you have to have it how old six separate crafter and they didn't think it looks to be the opposite they didn't envision that some of the opposition party trickle of the house would be a European Parliament terrible but not that's what it's become and there's a lot of Republicans we believe the appropriate approach doesn't want the Democrats so I imagine that the next time we have a democratic president and there are any legal gonna consider doing that because it's now going to be the most off the laundry vintage one as we know it doesn't exist anymore it's been transmog apart in the dictionary yeah but hi this is the way it is and remember we have no special counsel report no bipartisan support you have no public support need this approach currently W. peaks of the nineteenth century of course come president and will premiere Alexian it was just awesome we have in the basement we are not in the house Judiciary buttonholes intelligence committee to selectively things by Alan ship so we just it's just patently dishonest asymmetrical one and I think they're gonna pay a price for me home is on his way to a seventy nineteen seventy two or nineteen eighty four reelection well that's exactly the mangled that's exactly the next question I wanted to see professor if if nothing else exogenous happens if there's no massive external crisis if the economy state keeps going the way it's going and the president is reelected in two hundred and seventy seven days what do you expect the effect to be the knock on effect on these people will will live suddenly be Damascene moment where they say okay we got it wrong way sorry the media the left and will behave ourselves could it get worse and and really how could it get worse well here is the story we just have to ask what did they do after seventy two when they got the winner should not my government a surgeon on both the Compaq we never we haven't won since JFK and us you have a democratic guy with a southern accent DJ can you call the right and unions kind of a central St eighty four the left four my gosh school's out and they did it again with the caucus and then they they didn't do it again I got a guy with a southern accent so I think they'll be a lot of people who say the A. L. C. when school's out and you want to let you wrecked the blue dogs but I don't I'm not sure the demography and the changing twenty first century landscape allow that to happen the Democratic Party is so the Jacobin party control no quality and I don't know if they they kind of extinguisher liquidate all of the people want in all single barrelled omegle dinosaur the nominee list anymore and the people in there a light might exist like Bloomberg S. inviting has been scouring the exits images from renouncing or the prior cell because I don't know if there's anybody left the use of the for a different one with her late and have to come and say you guys destroyed the Democratic Party it's kind of a lot of one whether the Republicans take the house of course Brian's got fifty fifty chance of doing ten cameras on them as well can a pragmatist with a southern accent save the Democrats about trounced this November we shall see first we have to win the election those who believe in the make America great again agenda with talk to professor Victor Davis Hanson senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of the case for trump will be back with a good professor in a
Trump Denies Giuliani Acted on His Behalf in Ukraine: 'Rudy Has Other Clients'
"I WANNA play a clip of an interview with Donald Trump and his and his old buddy man who used have a cable show until he was fired because of so many accusations of sexual arrangement this is donald trump talking about rudy. Giuliani whose intimated he has insurance against the president and won't run the bus over him and this is what Donald Trump is now saying about him. Take a listen. So what was Rudy Giuliani. Doing in Ukraine on your behalf. Where you have to ask that to rudy but Rudy I? I don't even know I. I know he was going to go to Ukraine and I think he cancelled a trip But you know Rudy has other clients other than me. I'm one direct him to go there on your behalf. You didn't know but you have to understand. Rudy is a great corruption fighter. I mean there's so much that's fascinating about this betsy but the first thing that sticks Out To me is you'RE GONNA have to ask is literally what he said about. Michael Kohn back in April eighteen. When he was I asked about the animals? He said you're going to have to ask Michael and look where Michael ended up right did not have a happy ending for for Mr Cohen Trump. Telling people to talk to rudy kind of ironically also matches. What what he was telling? Some of his senior administration officials called him with questions about Ukraine. He said go talk to Rudy. The reality is rudy. Unquestionably was one of the trump himself. Senior on voice too key while this entire process was playing out and everybody knew it that Ukrainians new at the Americans knew trump trump nuit rudy. New at there was no mystery to this and remember part of the reason that there's such a robust conversation about whether or not to expand the number of witnesses. This is testifying before the impeachment inquiry is that we haven't actually heard from people who were really really in the weeds with Rudy himself. On the work he was doing for the president resident. Love Parnassus a person who would potentially be able to provide that testimony Andrea earmark. who was an aide to the president of Ukraine who met with Rudy shortly after after the trump as Alinsky phone call year? Mock told me on the record that led Parnasse was at the table when he and Rudy had a conversation that has now proven to the incredibly faithful Peres hasn't yet testified. So there's a lot of information out there that congressional Democrats still don't have a great point as for Rudy Swim. I mean debates. He's he's point he literally tells Linski on the phone call to talk to rudy. He tells them you talk to people. Will you borrow Rudy. He I mean he will try because he tries to do this. All this things things and just sort of like Ben Reality News will but there is just no question. He's directing people to get in contact with Rudy. No absolutely and look like as betsy was mentioning earlier about how India Open and how public this was and it wasn't actually a secret at best. It was an open secret. That Giuliani was acting on president. Trump's behalf unrest is he was telling reporters on the record for months in in a very loquacious manner in the months leading up to the scandal before the long before the impeachment inquiry was even lauch. And when when he would talk about it to reporters at various outlets including at the daily beast he would repeatedly say how he was. Keeping President. Trump abreast yes leafed on all of his progress progress so if president trump wants turn around now and talk about how oh he was doing his own thing well. There were numerous opportunities from to tell his lawyer to knock get the hell off if he actually wanted US win. Su- sang and Betsy Woodruff Swan. Thank you both your time

"SNL. They did the open with Michael Kohn at his testimony for the house oversight committee. They have different cast members who are able to nail down certain characters. Bill Hader came back. Played Representative Jeff Jordan, and I mentioned this Melissa via senor, I think they said that correctly. Via senior, Melissa. Is it really VS and your? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And she's like a stand up comic. But she got this gig on SNL. She's got a different. It's like a character does characters. She's she's really nailed Alexandria ocasio Cortes. She's got her down the facial expressions. If you really got it on Sunday when she played her on the opening much just as to make faces. That's it just look like she's just she's so happy to be in the room. Although during the testimony of Michael Cohen AFC was getting some some pretty decent numbers as far as critics in terms of a rapid fire questioning of Michael Cohen, and she's a democrat. She's trying to get Cohen to give up more information on Trump for Turney. She seemed to be very attorney. Yes. So they're looking at her now in New York to all right? Well, here's a story the thing, and this is not gonna make it Washington because she's just way too out there. But she could be the first female mayor of New York City. There's never been a female mayor of New York and be as liberal as that city is I mean, that's the thinking in twenty twenty one when the Blasio Bill de Blasio is done that she can run for mayor, and I had to actually might be that would make sense that would make sense for for her. And for New York City as I said, it's extremely liberal there in that in that in town. So I mean, there are others that are there. I guess are thinking about running for mayor. The Blasio is somebody who was like the public advocate or something like that. He wasn't really. And but but he one which is just any super super to the left. So they're saying she might be the next mayor and she'll break the ceiling, and she'll be the first female the other names that they're mentioning are. Anybody really anybody would get excited about that. Seems to be like a big star the problem that she's going to have is. I mean, there's a contingent of people in New York City just pissed off Atticus. They're blaming her for chasing Amazon away, Schumer's begging him to reconsider twenty-five you when you've got people from your own party begging. She's like, really and outcast there. She's way too extreme for the the moderate Democrats, people go is it we twenty five thousand jobs here. You just you screwed it up. There's a good chance that people in Washington. Laker more than the people in New York right now. Yeah. Possibly by still think that there are also a lot of people who are just like I said, very very liberal and would vote for her in a second. So anyways, I mentioned her because Roseanne Barr was added over the weekend. She was on some sort of a a podcast, and she was talking about the metoo movement. And she said something along the lines of. Well, you ain't nothing. But a ho I know a whole when I see one making references to women who would go up to hotel rooms or go into offices to meet with the Harvey Weinstein's, you know, those type of people, and she or point is trying to make was like if you're going to go into hotel to meet Harvey Weinstein. Wouldn't you know what's coming next? You know, what you're going to go in and you're going to see the guy walk out of the bathroom in his bathrobe or Brett Ratner walking out his bathrobe. Just you know, choke in the chicken with a shrimp cocktail in one hand and his shrimp. Cocktail and the other. That's what that's what you what you're going to get anything Roseanne was trying to say, you know, you're ho- a host. They'd be the way to the top. But I mentioned her here today. Oh, see and the audio that we played last week Roseanne talking about a OC Alexandria court. And she's did in such a way where she was. Very laid back. I think you're just finishing a sandwich. You'll hear chowing down in the beginning. But she was kind of the same way on this podcast. I dunno. Maybe she's on medication. I would just kinda chilling her out. But but Roseanne see like this is the rosy. I like this. I like that Roseanne what she's screaming the bleep back to chill rose ends too. Scary. Play a little bit of the audio here from last week. That green new deal that that Farrakhan Lovin bit trying to remember her name. The bug eyed bitch, the next soccer realtor, she got them realtor is realtor. Yeah. You can always tell by realtor is gone. Sounds like this is sounds like what it sounds like right before she's about to pull the trigger. Tarintino? Yeah. You've already made your position to kill somebody. You're not upset. Crazy. Just kind of right before. Bug-eyed bitch. Two too relaxed about it. What someone's that relax the decision to take you out? If you're a cold distant. Yeah. But she calls her the bug eyed bitch. So it's kind of like that on this particular podcast with Kansas Owens, and she says they're in the room they're going to because they thought they're going to get a job fifteen years ago 'cause they hose they hose says they hope because they hose I think she's trying to talk street bar said some of the money some of the women who are the men's hotel rooms at three AM or pretending like they didn't go to trade sexual favors for money. She continue mocking the victims of the movement by saying they say around the hotel rooms because they thought they were going to get the job. And then that's what she said. You ain't nothing, but a ho ho when I see one you might be a bug-eyed bitch. Ho. Let's he's challenging. Chick-fil-a sandwich, or whatever she was even is the metoo movement was founded in two thousand six by activists Toronto Burke had no idea who started using the phrase to raise awareness of sexual abuse. So I had no idea starting two thousand six I thought it started recently. But I guess there wasn't a lot that happened after that. But I guess they only had. Yeah. I had no idea that was two thousand six bar. Didn't name didn't drop the namedrop Burke. But she did mention one notable need to accuser Christine blazey Ford who publicly accused US judge Brad Kavanagh of sexual misconduct. She's called. I think she's calling her a ho hotel. Fifteen party, but you must have done something gonna happen. I know when I see one. And then she's claimed that nothing happened to she said she should be in prison, adding forty years or white woman privilege to rake in one million dollars from crowd funding campaigns that supported her following her testimony. And then she laid into come Harris. She said look at Kamala Harris who I call Kama Sutra Harris. This is actually pretty funny. I like that. That's a good one. As as we all know what she did. She slept away to the bottom o Abar continues apparently ferring to Harris's pass relationship with former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown. You know, that that that was like the runner Kamala Harris is that a lot of things. But there's a lot of weirdness around her. You know? So what did you get that that label Kama Sutra harass people think you got that label then you're like well now all bets are off. Now, I gotta go go know. I gotta go all out. And if that's if that's what I gotta do what I gotta do. So the latest reading here with Kamala Harris, she's apparently gaining momentum and popularity because she supports what the the decriminalization of marijuana. Nope. Run cocaine. No poet. Is it prostitution? Oh, yes. It is. So it may be a little little too late. Robert Kraft, would certainly raise the money for you on this one. So she is supportive of decriminalizing prostitution that idea that's been increasing popularity among Democrats for years, the idea of decriminalization or even legal prostitution is likely be a topic. For those running for presents for twenty twenty. It's the oldest profession on the planet. We all know that Representative role grove of Arizona thinks that sex work is on the same path as same sex marriages and marijuana saying at some point in all be looked at in a different light. Here's the bottom line. And I've talked about it before. And I'll say it again. There's no reason why it's legal in the Nevada. But it's it can't be legal anywhere else. There's no reason. There's no real good logical reason why it shouldn't be legalized, and here's how you do it. It's all licensed, you have to get a license like you'd have to get a license to be a massage therapist. The only difference is you're going to be massaging a different muscle. That's the only difference all the muscles. Okay. So you get a license for it. You get tested for sexually transmitted diseases three times a year or once quarter, whatever it's gonna be, you know, you you you make sure that you provide a proper documentation that a United States citizen or you have a work visa or and be you have a birth certificate. That says you're over the age of whatever it is know twenty one or whatever it's going to be and you do everything the way you would do with any sort of a job. And you make it you legalize it, and you tax it you make these prostitutes pay taxes, they guarantee you a Murphy whatever name is over at the bunny ranch, Starlight or.

But Trump shutdown drags on. It is a little bit of pain as Trump world fiddle insists, the let them eat cake kind of attitude or call your father for money tonight. My exclusive interview with democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren Wilbur Ross, the Trump shut down and her brand new proposal for a wealth tax on the super rich. Then the Senate will force Michael Cohen to testify. Michael Kohn will speak the diplomatic crisis for America amid chaos in Venezuela. Stomas Khanna status, and the unbelievable reason Florida's secretary of state just resigned. I'm not calling this Disentis a racist. I'm simply saying the racist believe he's a racist at all in Stark's right now. Good evening from New York. I'm Chris as the president is losing the fight over the government shutdown, the longest and potentially most damaging in this nation's history, and the more he tries to make his case, the bigger the whole he digs for himself and for the country to different Senate measures to reopen the government failed today as expected the surprise was that in the Republican-controlled chamber with a GOP holds a commanding six which seat majority. The Democrats Bill got more votes than the president's the vote was more evidence. The president's position is only getting weaker the longer the shutdown drags on. And it's the situation grows. Increasingly desperate for thousands of families scraping by without the income. They've earned a security concerns mount especially over the nation's strained aviation system. The Trump administration also knows it is being blamed for the situation probably in no small part because the president said on camera basically, you should blame me for the situation. It's clear the White House gets this because the worst things get the more. They try to minimize the shutdowns of facts, it's hard to imagine a more tone-deaf message than a bunch of multimillionaires downplaying the hardships that working families have been forced to face though in fairness to those millionaires. They probably have no clue what it's actually like to miss paycheck. According to the president's chief economic adviser, the shutdown is no more than a glitch and unpaid workers are simply volunteering. Soon as this thing does switch will be turned down payments will be made we will go back to normal. This is just a glitch might may not met with my individual staff members. And God bless there. We're in for free. They're volunteering volunteering. Recall without volunteer workers. They're showing up. That's not bombing here. Hey. Let's not volunteer. That's not what. You know, I'm not even gonna go there. K now that's after the president's daughter-in-law and campaign booster, Larry, Trump paid lip service. The quote little bit of pain that some workers are going through. It's not fair to you. And we all get that. But this is so much bigger than any one person. It is a little bit of pain, but it's going to be for the future of our country. So I would just tell them, please stay strong. We pre appreciate everything that you're sacrificing. We're behind you. And we're gonna do everything we can I know the president is doing everything he can to resolve this quickly for perhaps no one no one is more out of touch with the real world impact the shutdown. The president's commerce secretary will Ross a man has gotten caught lying to congress and on his financial disclosure firm. Forums both under penalty of perjury. He's a man who's been known to wear six hundred dollar velvet slippers, not making this up. You can see the photo customized with the logo of the Commerce Department.

"To lie instructed him to do. So. And this is a bigger deal. Then a lot of people want to realize. We talk about it all the time. It's the cover up rarely is that the crime that gets you in trouble. That's what does you. Yeah. Hit stuff straight on the head. You put it out there. And boom, just let it lie where it lies, and the nobody what are they gonna say you at that point in time. But. We'll get you. And that's the thing that is. Well, I mean to me this is a game changer. This is. A game changer because if he did this. You are obstructing Justice. You are. Doing something that people go that's a peachable that that that right? There is impeachable. It has nothing to do with collusion. It has nothing to do with any of these this. We're talking we're still talking about the tower. Right. We're still talking about the tower. That's we're talking about. We're not talking about other things to do with. Right. We're talking about tower and should the tower. Go up are they still going to do it? And any of that stuff? That's what we're talking about here. So don't think this is all about the collusion has zero to do with that and is more to do with business. But the instruction to him. If it did happen, according to BuzzFeed. They say it did happen. If that's true that to me is a different situation where he's going to face some serious scrutiny. Big time. I don't deal there. I have no businesses that have no loans from Russia. He's got no loans from Russia. Nunzio, zilch. Nada. So now, he asked a question how big is it up to this point? We've talked about where is the line for obstruction of Justice. It's not enough. For example, some people say to fire James me, what would be witness tampering? This is easy. It keep told Michael Kohn to lie to congress. No one would suggest that's not obstruction of Justice or witness tampering. Yeah. Yeah. That would be to me that's a real serious issue. And now whether you're going to remove him for that, and whether or not you're going to believe anything because let's remember who it is. That is telling the story. It is Michael Cohen. Can you believe anything that guy says at all? Because he's going to be like, no, no, okay here. Remember the thing? I said, oh that was a lie. And then I said the other thing you like, oh that was a lie to but now this time now this time, I'm telling the truth. Yeah. It's hard to it's hard to say, you know, you think about the source. And he's having second thoughts about February seventh when he's supposed to testify and part of that is because there may be things because he's going to be really hit hard by the Republicans, and hopefully by the Democrats as well, and the it's not gonna it's it's going to be a spectacle. If he does. And I don't I wouldn't be surprised if he says not want to do this plead the fifth and knock I I I I don't want any part of this because he could also incriminate himself on other things and the White House is coming out and categorically deny it. That's absolutely ridiculous. I.

"Brand new reporting tonight on Trump fixer. Michael Cohen and the vast amount of money. He charged in consulting fees since the election. In addition to the one point, two million dollars. He got from Novartis the six hundred thousand from eighteen t half a million from the Russian older connected investment firm, Columbus, Nova and the hundred and fifty grand from a South Korean aerospace company. Michael Kohn apparently get this negotiated ten million dollar deal just before his office was raided by the feds this year to help a real estate mogul get public money to build some nuclear power plants Wall Street Journal, break news night that Franklin Haney who donated by the way, a million dollars Trump's inauguration committee just because has club membership mar-a-lago because he likes playing there, it guess, and reportedly boasted about his dinners with President Trump last year. Also, according to the Wall Street Journal, agreed to pay ten million to the president's then personal Turney, Michael Cohen. If he successfully helped tain fund. For nuclear power project, including is my favorite part of five billion dollar loan from the US government according to people familiar with the matter joining me now is one of Wall Street Journal reporters who broke that story tonight. Michael Rothfield. Wow. There's a lot going on here. One thing that strikes me is this is to meet. I knew all the gigs of like the Michael Kohn influence side gigs, but I guess we didn't know. No, we didn't know all of them, and there may yet be more one that we we had reported before that Cohen had arranged a meeting for Haney with the Qataris to try to get an investment for this nuclear power plant. He's trying to open in Alabama, but we didn't know exactly the terms of the agreement. So today we reported that as you said, he Cohen was promised ten million dollars if he could help get funding for this power plant, including this five billion dollar loan, and just, you know, astounding number both on both counts from the department of energy. So there's a few things here that are striking, and I should take time to read what I think is kind of a non denial denial from Hanes attorney as neither Mr. Haney nor nuclear development LLC ever entered into a contract, Michael owners affiliate for lobbying services. Related to the Belafonte project. The project we should note that that's a specific technical meaning, right? You got to register to be lobby, right? You could enter into consulting contract, right? And that's most likely what this contract says, consulting or strategic advice except that we have reported that federal prosecutors in New York are looking at whether Michael Cohen engaged in a legal lobbying. They've contacted some of his other consulting clients such as AT and Novartis to talk to them about the deals they had with Cohen, and we reported today that Cohen in fact, had called the energy department. Several people there to ask about this nuclear power project and to see if it could the process could be speeded up. So do that. Well, I'm not a prosecutor, but that is can't do that. You could look. There's a whole universe of people in Washington who consult and don't lot, but there's certain lines to get away with a consultant alive. He's calling the energy department puts you in a tough spot when you have to explain that behavior. That could be a problem. Actually, there's wrong that it's a crazy amount of money. It's a lot of money, ten million dollars..

I'm Brad milkey with ABC news and I'm here to throw you a lifeline. It's a new podcast called start here or are experts give you on the ground access to the biggest stories of the day. We're going to give you some context, some clarity among the chaos, twenty minutes every weekday subscribe now on apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast and start here. What did you know about phone calls that Mr Flynn made with the Russian ambassador? What did you mean in your interview? With Lester Holt about Mr.. Komi in Russia. Those are two of the forty nine questions. Robert Muller's special council wants to ask President Trump in a sit down interview according to a document leaked to the media this week, ABC's congressional correspondent MAry, Bruce on what else is in those questions. The list of nearly fifty probing questions. Special counsel, Robert Muller has for President Trump lines of questioning, Muller shared with Trump's own legal team. The list now published by the New York Times and what the president is now calling a disgraceful leak Russian collusion. Give me a break. Trump insists. Molars list has no questions on collusion, but that's not true. The special counsel has questions about Paul Manafort once the president's campaign chairman according to the times, Muller wants to ask Trump what knowledge did he have any outreach by his campaign, including by Paul Manafort to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign. Muller also wants to ask the president win. Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting that infamous sit down Don Jr. Jared, Kushner? Manafort in Russians, they were told had dirt on Hillary Clinton much of Muller's list centers on possible obstruction of Justice by the president. The special counsel wants to know what if I were made to reach out to Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn about seeking immunity or possible? Pardon. And what did Trump mean when he said this about firing his FBI director, James Komi when I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, you know, this rusher thing. Thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story N when Trump told Russian diplomats and this Oval Office meeting that firing Komi had taken the pressure off, what did he mean by that? Another question Muller wants answered, what discussions did the president have regarding terminating the special counsel with the release of those questions also came word that the special counsel has warned President Trump's legal team, that if the president refuses an interview, Muller could issue a subpoena ABC news, chief legal analyst. Dan Abrahams says, this raises the stakes, let's say it works its way all the way through the courts. The supreme court then says, sorry, this is a valid subpoena and the president says, well, I don't think so, and I'm not going to show up. That's when you have the real potential crisis. We use this word constitutional crisis all the time. I think that the only real crisis occurs if you have in the end, a real war between two branches of government were one of saying, you can't tell me what to do the president. However, maintaining he's still willing to sit down with Muller despite what his legal team is telling him. I would love to speak. I would love to nobody wants to speak more than me back against my lawyers because most lorries they never picked another. I would love to say, what is it like to sit down with a special counsel's team former Trump campaign adviser. Michael Caputo recently did so, and he's detailing the experience to ABC news, chief Justice correspondent Pierre, Thomas former Trump political adviser. Michael Caputo helped in the early stages of a campaign from Trump Tower says he won't soon. Forget the grilling. He says, he took from two FBI juice and a prosecutor with a special counsel's team three hours. Plus they weren't pulling any punches at at some points in time. I, it got kind of frightening. Caputo says the agents knew so much about his life. It scared him. They know everything here. They know more about what I did in two thousand sixteen than I do, but will the investigators after they're talking about the timing of some things that happened at the campaign and at the convention. I think they're completely focused on collusion. With Russia. According to Caputo, there was a lot of focus on the hack of the DNC by Russian operative known as goussev for and WikiLeaks, which published stolen information. This is his stark assessment on whether Muller's anywhere near done, investigating possible collusion. I'm hoping this end soon, but it sounds to me like they have more dating to do today. Give you any sense that they have anything. I believe that they, they think they're onto something what that is. I don't know. They're not messing around. Caputo, says investigators Pepperdine with questions about his friends. The president's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Paul Manafort who's been indicted on money laundering charges. The president's longtime friend and advisor, Roger stone. The one thing he says, surprised him from the interview. It was remarkable to me that the president was brought up. Nobody with last name Trump came up at all. Speaking of the president's legal team, there were major shakeups yet again this week with top White House lawyer, tie Cobb telling ABC news. Be leaving having, you know, stay longer than I intended, but believing that the end of this month ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl spoke with Cobb about his departure from the president's team out tie Cobb, the lead White House lawyer dealing with the special counsel replaced by Amit flood who was one of President Clinton's impeachment lawyers Cobb tells me he was ready to leave almost everything that I was brought on to do as Ben accomplished comet employed a strategy of patients with Muller cooperation. Definitely. What is the right move? And and definitely the path that would lead to the quickest resolution. But it was President Trump's newest lawyer, former mayor, Rudy Giuliani who created shockwaves this week when he told FOX's Sean Hannity, that money was not campaign money. Sorry, I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know, it's not campaign money, no campaign finance violation. So they've funneled through law firm. Frontal through over and the president. It. I didn't know Giuliani acknowledging for the first time that the president repaid that one hundred thirty thousand dollars to his personal attorney. Michael Kohn ABC's giancarl with a new explanation from the White House last month. The president, flatly denied knowing anything about the hush money Cohen claimed he paid Daniels out of his own pocket.
