"Project for world. Peace and how how that started and i would say i wouldn't call it a political agenda. I would call his social agenda politics to me has to do with republicans and democrats in the left and the right and blah blah blah blah. All these labels that we wanted to apply to people. That don't agree with us. I want to focus on what we do agree about. We can agree. I think war is a bad thing. War is not something we want to see happen. I think generally we can all agree with that. And i wanna build off of that consensus and talk about what we can do about this particular social issue so now i had written a couple of songs that were you would in the old days. Call it a protest song antiwar and that brought me through the wonders of the internet in connection with a music producer on the east coast who was writing similar stuff but wanted to really get that message out. It wasn't just write a song and there it is. It's how could we actually make a difference. How can we influence the people that make decisions about going to war to show them the consequences of what that means how it impacts real people and there are other ways. There are alternatives to going to war. And so we decided after looking at a couple of songs we decided you know we want to give voice to musicians and writers that have the same message and have the same goal and we created this indie label music for world. Peace records to do that. And so now as of sunday we have released our thirteenth single on about seven different artists. We've got artists here in the us. In australia in south africa in the netherlands we got more people in other countries. That were developing songs for production. Now and what we're looking for and what we're producing. The same are songs that oppose war promote peace in love and try to show the decision makers world the impact of going to war and the fact that peace and love are the alternate has long are all about yes and have you had any success with reaching those people and making a difference. Not yet not yet. But we're we're identifying more and more international peace organizations that were hoping to partner just to have them help distribute our music. And we're not doing this for any profit at all. There's a little bit of profit becomes from people that listen to the songs on streaming services like spotify but that's so ministerial. That's really not what the motivation is. The motivation is. Let's get the music out there. So people are thinking about this and hearing about this. And as i say there's some peace organizations that we're talking about how we may be able to partner there are some other non-governmental organizations as they call them ngos that we're talking to with the same idea to get the word out and that's exactly my mission as well to show how the arts can heal. How arts can give voice to our your world. Not just what's going on now. But all over the world people struggle with this and i think we can all agree you talk to that agree that it is through music that we can tap into the hearts and souls of people and we may not see a palpable change in what we're doing but i just feel like you i'm not making money from this but Some way somehow. I did a brain trauma project and someone who listened to the podcast. Didn't realize that she was abused sexually abused when she was three two or three years old and it came out with seizures and epilepsy. You know and it's like oh my god. I never thought. I could see this going back to what you were saying. You know how many more how many more people students kids are going to be shot and we just kind of raise the awareness and that's that's all we can do. Mike thank you so much for taking time out and we're gonna talk about boats after this show because we both have boats that we live above the water. So we'll talk about that too.

"Makes a lot of sense to me and so when the portland shootings happened. That was of course. Just the latest example of of this horrific school shooting mass shooting events and to me cycle was always the same one of these events would occur. There would be horror and there would be outrage. And then there would start the discussion about all our second amendment rights and blah blah blah. And nothing would happen in the psych which is coming around till the next week it would happen again and again and again and the question i started asking myself is first of all. I think we could find areas of agreement between the different camps and the different viewpoints on gun control where we could find agreement but more importantly how many more people are going to have to die before we start do how many kids are gonna ask to die. And that's what became the core of the song for me. How many more have to die before we do something about this. And so with that idea as concept and i kind of figured out. That's going to be more or less what the chorus of the song is about. What are the verse is going to be about. And i decided in the verses to tell stories about people that were impacted by gun violence and so we have the first versus about school shooting the second verses about a woman who's just spilling home for work at the end of the day it stops by takeout dinner and walks in on arrival and the last versus about a veteran who is so desperate in despairing that he commits suicide. Because i think that's a part of the gun violence problem as well. The number of people that resort to suicide and the fact that it's so easy in this country to get guns to do that and so that's how that song kind of came together and this is a song for me happened relatively quickly. I think i spent a couple of weeks crafted There are other songs that take months. And i'm not exaggerating. They'd say l. set them aside. Because i just can't quite get into out of finish something up but this happened relatively quickly and it's the story that i wanted to tell your individuals that are impacted in killed by gun violence. How many more times is this going to happen. How many more times are we been a leftist before we do something of that. So that's an example. I guess is the perfect example. I want to bring you back to that collaboration. So educate me yeah. Collaboration actually happens quite a bit in music. At various steps of the process it has become more and more the norm in both pop music and country music for people to collaborate in the writing. And in fact it's very evident these days pop music. You go to a major pop artist. Album white taylor swift isn't examples and you look at the number of people that have songwriting credit on an individual track on an album. You'll see four five six ten people and it's because they're has become in the pop music world a real specialization in. Who does what in craftiness saw. There are some people that do nothing but create rhythmic beats and then there and then there are other people who will take those beats and they do nothing but come up with looks like how many more what's the hook that gets people drawn into this song. Then there are people that focus on melody. There are people that focus on verses their people to focus on chorus all of that turns into a collaboration that creates this song and even in the country world which is slowly gravitating to that model but even in the country world for years. It's been the practice for two or three songwriters to get together in a defined media a songwriting meeting to sit down and knock around ideas of song. And i'll contribute a aligned. You contribute a line and here's a little melodic. Look the kind of carries that and so you have that type of collaboration which i like because it brings ideas that i might not have. It creates music that i might not individually create. Sometimes not always that. Sometimes i think creates a stronger overall song when it's not always because you can get into you know the designing nelson's idea things can lose their way but i collaborated with songwriter. Up in connecticut he had started us on about the income inequality in this country. How there's the the haves and the have nots. And he was having trouble finishing in come up with some good ideas and a couple of verses and he asked me to help him with that. And i did if we came up we think is a pretty good song and one of the big contributions that i think that i made that song is that we tend to lose our focus after a while we were focusing on income inequality but that kinda lead into questions of food deprivation poverty and we started writing about bad. I finally was the one that said you know this needs to be about one thing and the one thing it needs to be about. There's the has half not to doesn't need to be about all this other stuff. You know this is so interesting because that's exactly the same process of putting on a play one of the questions that we asked the playwright is. What's the major dramatic question here. What story do you want. This is so so enlightening. I never made the connection between the two one of the things. Also that you talked about my was that you have a political agenda here with some of your songs and you wanna bring the best. You wanna move this forward in a pro active positive way. Could you talk a little bit about your.

"Route to have. I don't know that. I could totally agree that i'm not jaded. Enjoy irony and i enjoy seeing the irony in certain stances employees out the irony even sometimes when it's painful because sometimes it can be. This is a pretty good example. I think there are a lot of people who would like to see responsibility. Placed for what happened to cap and they'd like to see trump held to account for the things that he did that contributed today and there is some irony in the way. Our system works that that may not adapt and isn't that iran in his net. Sad but there it is and this is a good example of how i would try to write about something like this because we're either choose to do a song on this topic. I would not do the song strictly about the events that happened at the capitol. And what trump said didn't say i try to get to the deeper underlying emotion and motivation. And see if. I could broaden that out into a discussion of those aspects rather than just the historical aspects. That's so true. Because when i listened to your songs i was drawn to two of them. I'd like you to talk a little bit about them. You can talk about any song that you want. But what i'm interested in is exactly what you just said taking what is happening in the moment and translate that into a musical version to either teach or just express. You know where you're coming from. The two sons that i liked was lay my troubles down and the grass is always greener. Lay my troubles. Down is really in a way a gospel song. It isn't it isn't it's a blues song and it's a gospel song and i mentioned growing up. I never did anything musically and there was a certain irony. Because i come from a very musical family particularly on my mother's side where i have anson uncles that are involved in nationally. Recognized asshole groups. They saying they perform one of them. Swire parsons by can do a shout out for 'em is a well respected extremely well known docile entertainer in wrote a couple of standards. That are out there in that genre of music so again. It was an irony that was happening. All around me. And i did do any of that so when i started writing. That's one of the genres of music. That i was drawn to because i'd been exposed to it so much. I knew some of the conventions. I knew some of the structures and those are some of the songs i i started writing. Lay my troubles. Down is all about someone who recognizes that. They have caused pain in life. Not just themselves that actually to other people and bearing the burden of that and hoping and wishing asking for the day that i can finally lay that low down that i've carried that low long enough carried it my entire life and interestingly. It's funny how you can write something and i'm not just talking about myself i've about anybody. It's funny how you can write something and you may have a particular. Id and message that you could stay. And then people will read that and come up with different interpretations that you didn't really consider but it really resonate in both directions. This particular song a month ago. I was asked to perform it at a candlelight vigil protesting against the federal death penalty and i had never really thought about how does relate to that. And i asked the organized. The vited me and she said well you know. I listened to it and i hear someone that has committed a crime and accepts responsibility for it and is willing to pay the price for it but is this the price that's really appropriate and yeah. I hadn't considered that. But i hear that now in that song thinly when i talked to playwrights you know and i'll say like my god when that character said that just opened up all these new and they're like i had no idea they have no idea of the power of their words and i think that that's kind of what you were talking about. I agree with you. And i see that when i never done anything on the stage but i attend plays i read plays. I see that too where you'll see a play. That has a story that is telling. But there's so much more depth to what's being conveyed by not just the writing of the play but the way the actors then portray it to us it gets again those underlying truths in those underlying emotions that resonate between us as people and across time and similarly when i work with a playwright as an actor and the cast. I bring out things as a performer. That the playwright you know never considered before. How do you as a musician. 'cause you're working with yourself you know. You don't have that collaboration of the playwright and the director and dramaturge the all of the all of that. It's a collaboration. What's your process. I guess you know. How do you get that idea like if you were to write a song about what has happened. You know about seeking truth and wanted to translate that into your art form. How how do you go about doing that. It's a multilayered ran. This is how. I think. I many ways i think about how artists work and you know what makes them tick. And you said you said mike that you look for the ironing. And and what's ironic. Oh god can we go on. Finish this sentence. Let me say this because there is a lot of collaboration in music in certain circumstances. Said i'll talk about that in a minute because it's a fascinating part of the process. But when i i sit down to choose the topic to write a song. And i do quite a bit of writing of what is called topical music or what used to be called protest music. And so i'll see a headline or i'll read about a historic event or something that's happening current events and it'll just me to thinking about. I listened for phrase that i can turn into a musical hook or a musical title. Something to be the core that i'm going to tell this story around. This is not a song that you mentioned. But i'll talk about this because this song. It fascinates people that. I wrote it and angers people that i wrote it and it's a song called more now. I was law enforcement officer for almost thirty years. And i carried a gun every day and i saw the effects of violence against people individual people i worked ally grew up in detroit and i worked a lot in detroit and then i worked out on the west coast. Those are pretty violent places for some people. I saw it and so as a thirty year law enforcement officer. It fascinates people that i am opponents of gun control and it angers people especially here in the south when they find out. What do you mean you're used to be a cop. You want gun control. That doesn't make any sense. Yeah it.

"I'm always amazed at how each person has a distinct dynamic that can raise our spirits and instill hope through their art as an actor performing what act play on the trauma brain project with marsha mason. fashion edgy. -tainer banu yam or creating socks that speak to the soul of our political. Heroes like maggie stirred you one of the ways. I've learned to proactively channel. My isolation is to seek out. What i call my pandemic pals. These are people. I've met through social media who have become sources of inspiration and amusement. When i reached out to today's guest mike turner he said. Why would you wanna talk to me. You sure you've got the right. Mike turner Well i certainly do. This central agent turned special agent in charge of immigration customs enforcement. Published poets songwriters star is currently the ceo of original music advocating world peace and opposing war and violence. Welcome mike thanks ran great to be here. Thanks for inviting me. I have made some pretty big leaps in your life from dc federal investigator to playing the ukulele. How did that happen. Can you connect the dots for me. I think connect the dots. But i'm not quite sure. It's a linear trip to get there. I grew up in a very musical family. But i had never done anything really myself with music. I mean like any guy my age. I've played guitar in high school and college. And i was mediocre at best so i put it away and for the next thirty odd years. Didn't do anything then i retired. You mentioned my career in federal law enforcement. And i retired and my wife and i moved from at that time. Washington d. c. Where we were both posted to where we are now in coastal alabama. And i have a boat and we hit planned. The voting was going to be the big part of our retirement activity and that held for a while. And then i started looking for other things to do and lot of ukulele on a whim and took a local ukulele class. And by the second week of the class. I had written my first song and it just really seemed to click for me at Off from there. Oh my goodness we talked a bit. About how arts. Shine a light on the truth and there was a connection between your seeking truth as a federal investigator with the truth of being an artist. Marc career was based on a search for truth. If you will if if a crime had been committed it was my job to find out who was responsible for it and bring. Justice gathered the evidence that was needed to pursue a case in court to convict somebody but the jail the sign the appropriate punishment to them so there was always that focus on truth. The truth is kind of a layered thing i mean. That's one type of truth. Was there a crime who's responsible for it then. There are the truths that underlie that. Why did that crime mccur. Why did they choose to commit it. What were the motivations. And i got more and more just personally interested in why people do things not just proving that somebody did something but why whether the whys behind that and so when i did start writing that tended to be what i focused on. We're not so much that. I layer of what happened but that deeper layer of why. What was the motivation. What's the commonality between me and them and all of us who've why things are done and why things happen. And that's what i started to focus on is not so much about robbing a bank as it is what drove. That was greed. Is it desperation. And how do you write about those common things. Where did you discover about finding not truth and then translating that into writing music in some ways i found i think any of us can be motivated to do what might be considered bad things in the right rights. Not the right word. But in a certain set of circumstances let's go back to the bank robbing example. You know it's against the law. Rob a bank in. It's morally wrong to steal. That's all well and good but if you're doing it to feed your family because otherwise your children are going to starve. It starts to shed a little bit of a different light on what those truths really are. And i think it's those deeper truths that are universal. Among all of us has people and also tend to transcend time and circumstance. We can look back over the course of history. I suppose. In the two thousand years ago people did roman empire such and such. We're going to find that the motivational reasons for that. Where the same type of thing that motivate us all today. That's me is just fascinated. And that's what. I like to write about an s. What i liked to explore in some of my newsday what we do at. How does that connect us together is people and this past week as you know. The child impeachment trial was all about seeking truth and finding the truth behind the story. Does any of that connect to you as songs. I'm now songwriter. Well it it does certainly in one respect we always had a saying in law enforcement. There's what you know and what you can proof. And there were times a crime could be committed and we would have a pretty good idea of who was responsible for it but if you couldn't bring the evidence to prove that to the legal standards that are necessary in court at person might not be brought to justice for the crime they had committed. So that's one thing that i see what's happened in the last week. Is that question of. We know there's responsibility but is their responsibility to illegal standard that one could pursue mitch. Mcconnell who do not particularly respect talked about that after the vote and if you watch the video that he posted which is around twenty minutes long they actually do recommend it. He does make an argument. The although trump can be held morally responsible for what he did there might not be a very strict legal responsibility for what he did in terms of criminal prosecution and in terms of impeach. I'm not sure. I agree with his assessment totally. But it's an argument that can be made and the whole point being to answer your question. Yeah that sticks whitney that there were cases that i investigated that i knew that the crime had been committed and i knew who did it. And we didn't have the evidence to take it to court crew and that's not a very funny situation but one of the things that drew may keanu as a character in our group that we shared showed up to susan. Keller you just always found the humor and everything you know in the most dire of conversations that we would have on that thread and like who is this guy. I would just think that as a federal investigator you know you. You haven't become hardened to the world. That was something that i admired about you. You know you did become jaded about our circumstances but instead you use that to facilitate this artist in you that you didn't know.
Intelligence officials ask Congress not to hold threats hearings after angering Trump last year
"A year ago today. The president was so mad as he was watching. Those highlights. That sources told us. He was literally early screaming while watching people like Dan Coats. The former director of national intelligence talk about things like Iran North Korea. And the like because they were contradicting a lot of what you hear from the president publicly so now these intelligence officials have made this request thing. They don't WanNa have to testify about this publicly as you noted you can imagine why given what you were just talking about the Soleimani strike all these issues. Where you've seen this intelligence contradicting itself in recent these officials contradicting themselves in recent weeks? So while it's not the expectation take. This request is going to be granted. It hasn't been any kind of a formal request and we do still believe this report. This report that tells us the biggest threat essentially worldwide is still going to be public. Like you've seen these officials make clear is nothing they wanNA talk about publicly because essentially they are worried about angering president trump. All right CAITLIN. Thank you very much out front now. Ashu adopt a former. FBI special agent. Who knows a lot about these briefings obviously? FBI is involved in them and Republican congressman. Mike Turner Member of the House Intelligence Committee which would be holding one of those hearings hearings on the worldwide threat. Assessment Congressman is. We were talking about as you came out obviously committee has these hearings you get classified briefings behind closed doors but this is the one that the world sees the American public see it comes along with the document and you hear the reporting the top intelligence officials. Don't WanNa do this after last year when they did. You know president trump. Go back to school. It's wrong with you guys. It turned turned into a big A BIG FIASCO. Are you okay with them. Not Giving a public assessment will visit. There's a document that is the public assessment that is available for for the public and hate responding to things that are like one source or unnamed sources about what people are saying at the president might think or feel but I can tell you having served through three administration. There's a number of reasons reasons why the public portion is different than the classified portion that we receive and send sometimes many times administrations are reticent to do the public. I've actually sat through one word. Obama official in the public portion of a Russia threat assessment contradicted themselves than in the classified version because the threats are listening to and that's really the environment that they're in. It's not really. The president. United States is the audience the world is the audience our allies are listening to threats are listening and they also take from what this presentation is what they should do next and what. US policy's going to be so AIYSHA. The thing is though and I understand the point right. They've got different audiences and yet last year. And and this is our reporting. I know congressman. You always say what you just said there but this is reporting from multiple sources. It's bad at town. News organizations operate. They're saying that they don't want to do it because they're afraid of what trump will say they don't. I WANNA be belittled demeaned and humiliated after they say whatever it is. They're going to say. Is that a problem. Aisha that is a problem. Because it tells you off the bat that what they I would say would not align with what the president has been saying. Or what the president's thinking this is exactly why it makes them angry. And I think what you see. Here is basically easily an undermining of two fundamental pillars of democracy which is transparency and accountability transparency into. What do these intelligence heads think are threats threats directly from their mouths and accountability in terms of is the president responding to them effectively and for this president in particular particular? Is He telling the truth about them. So on this point okay. You got a closed door briefing on Iran. You were told that you were told. And you were reticent about it because it was classified presidents allowed to declassify hi which which he does? Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason he appeared to declassify or I don't know make I don't know all I know is he said there were four embassies. He's being targeted by Iran and his own National Security Advisor and secretary defense are unable to back that up. This this is what we're talking about. What are they going to say? Let me just play the president. And Ah play secretaries. ESPERER MR O'Brien I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies. I didn't see one with regard to four embassies I look. It's always difficult. Even with the exquisite intelligence that we have to know exactly what the targets are. Do you want to hear them publicly. Explain why he he said one thing and they have been unable publicly to even say he's right a couple of reasons and and I think it's not really an inconsistency one you have at the president is able to say things that they're not even if I had not correct once he says it is not in the version I have CanNot then be revealed but the second thing is is there's a number of sources of information there's even foreign intelligence sources that we receive those classified briefings at the president has at the Secretary of defense doesn't have That depending upon what the need is what the action is So the information that the president is receiving is much broader than all. The rest of us are going to be saying. They didn't contradict. They said we don't have that information. I didn't see that information which again is Does not say that. They're they're they're convict him. But I want to say one thing with what you said the chance to just to get in on that so when trump says I can reveal. I believe it would've been four embassies. And his own secretary of defense who was responsible for ordering troops to launch a drone attack back. I didn't see one with regard to pharmacies. You don't see that as a contradiction I see it as a contradiction and I think that if the secretary of defense is not seeing the same information mation that the president of the United States is that is a problem in and of itself. I also think that from people who've been in these highly sensitive meetings that that would be almost impossible that the secretary of defense sees the presidential daily briefing. They are the ones advising him on the options that are available in this this particular case where the military strike so I feel like it. Would I mean I would hope that is congressman. You would be incredibly disturbed. Well as you know. You haven't had a classified briefing and fifteen years and even the time period did you did not have access to the type of information that goes into the policy decision making or even the world threats brief that we have to hear in the Intel. Or are you saying you want an answer to this question. You're fine with it being behind closed doors or you just. You're just fine without no. I think there are certainly as utility to having the public hearing but what I was going to say to ashes. Prior statement is that the public hearing the public representation of this information is not about the president night states. This is not about challenging the president's AIDS and what he said this is about people who choose unwanted to harm and so all of our questions with respect to national security and this probably threats briefing the world threats briefing. The classified portions should be. How do we make America say okay? That's true but I should also be aren't our elected leaders responsible for telling us the truth about what threats we face before we decide where we're go to war over them with the bottom line is if they're afraid to tell the truth. Then we have a fundamental issue on these pillars of democracy. That I mentioned before if they they any themselves are afraid to come forward because what they think will you know the president will retaliate against them or any other blowback. That is that is a big problem. We're going to see what happens with The Chairman Chef and his own the world report the world threats report of course is public itself so the transparency is you have the opportunity to read it and from that you can make your own conclusion about what the administration saying and the report so that no questions from our electric present but I see your point. Yes we will. We will get the pay all
US lawmakers clash over impeachment charges against Trump
"Today. The House Judiciary Committee is marking up. The articles of impeachment in a confrontational televised hearing. Were also learning new details about the inevitable Senate trial early next year. I've got to fantastic guests. Tell me unpack all the news of the day in a few minutes. We'll be talking with White White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks that CNN. Political analyst. April Ryan but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN producer and reporter the relentless Marshall. Cohen Marshall Thank you so much for being here on the podcast. Thank you David so I want you to hear a little bit of sound from today's hearings now just I said marking up. The what is happening here is actually like the normal legislative process. What you know when When a bill gets introduced in committee it gets marked up that means each side? Has the ability need to make amendments to the bill change it and the committee homes that bill and then passes that to the full House and that is what is happening with these articles of impeachment. Now of course. The Democrats crafted these articles. They're very comfortable with the language and they're trying to change anything. Republicans are being given the opportunity Obviously To be able to slow roll this day make their political points Try to amend the articles but they're outvoted time and time again. procedurally These two articles are likely to be passed out of committee before the day is done and then onto the house floor for a vote next week. But that's the process. Here's the rhetoric I want you to I hear hear from Congresswoman Pramilla Jal of Washington state will any one of my colleagues on the other side. Say that it is an abuse of power to condition aid to condition aid on official acts. We'll forget about president trump. Aw Forget about President. Trump is any one of my colleagues willing to say that it is ever okay for President of the United States of America to invite foreign interference in our elections. Not a single one of you has has said that so far what I heard jibe. How say this Marshall? Today my ears perked up because she was really trying to remove donald trump from the equation and really focus on the fact that Republicans on the hill. Her colleagues on the other side of that day are would from her perspective blindly in lockstep with him no matter what so her her whole arguments here stripped him out of it. Are you okay with this presidential behavior. We've heard from a couple of Republicans. Mike Turner of Ohio will hurt Texas that have indicated the the phone call with Dolinsky that trump's language was not okay. I mean I think Turner used that that exact phrase Mr President. This is not okay yet. He fully does oppose impeachment She wishes it. Was that simple though. You could just strip trump out right hand mant trying to make an argument larger about Republicans here right about being just blindly lockstep with him. But they don't agree with her on the merits of this. Either right she's she said said two things she said trump Conditioned official acts on these favors number one and number two solicited election help from Ukraine crane. Now Democrats are in lockstep. That that's what happened Most outside observers that are acting in good faith would say that that is apparently apparently what happened but the Republicans dispute both of those right they say number one there was no direct proof that trump conditioned the military aid aide on the investigation. And you didn't hear that From anyone not even sunland right. Who said a Gordon Sunland the US ambassador to the U.? You who said that. It was conditioned on the White House invitation but not necessarily the military and then secondly we've been hearing this all day from Republicans today they're not conceding the ground that this was trump soliciting election. Help they're still arguing and they've been doing all day that this was trump trying to crack down down on corruption because Burris MMA The Ukrainian energy company was corrupt. And Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was involved with these corrupt crooked get actors so problem with the ground. Marshall can you point to all the other places that Donald Trump has made it policy to fight corruption and using Presidential Oval Office meetings meetings and Military aid is a way to accomplish cycle no and the Republicans are acting in bad faith by pushing both of these points it strains credulity ability it it defies logic. It's it's not a good faith. Argument here is perhaps a better argument from the Republicans that I wanted to hear from a Republican Congressman of California in Utah McClintock. His argument is really neither of those things. It is that the president has the ability to set policy here. And what is At core in McClintock's point of view here is all of these witnesses. You've heard from data policy disagreement of the way he was managing the Ukraine relationship relationship and priority. Here's McClintock MR chairman. The constitution introduces the President. With fifteen words. Executive Power shall be vested in a president under the United States of America. It does not vest any authority in Lieutenant colonels the NFC Ambassador State Department officials are Cabinet Secretaries Rotarians the only authority that these officials exercise is delegated to them by the president so all of the criticisms and resentments Johnson personal and political disagreements. That we've heard from those officials are completely irrelevant. I give him some credit there for making a a constitutional to tional argument on the constitutional question of impeachment. Is he right well. The president does get to set the policy but if the the policy is essentially that the United States government should be used to help the re election of Donald J trump then okay. The president sets that policy but it's in his own personal interest. The outcome of that official policy is for his his personal benefit and as Democrats describe it. What you just described is in violation of the Constitution and the oath of office that he swore You know when he became president. That is Nancy Pelosi's ultimate point right when when we discussed this yesterday. Whenever she's pressed on the politics of this she she goes to her oath of office to protect and defend and uphold the constitution and that the president violated that very oath that he also takes? Ah On she's not you know hooting and hollering and making a big show out of this in many ways. It's been very much reluctant march to get here. And and you know I think the strongest proof of that is that when Nancy Pelosi in the Democrats took over in January of this year. They didn't impeach anybody they didn't even they tried to snuff out talk of impeachment and anytime did any of the more Liberal members of their caucus started bringing it up Pelosi's he just shot it down over and over the are largely here. I think it's pretty clear that they are here because they feel like the president forced them to do this that he was so so unconstitutional and so much putting the integrity of our next election at stake that they had to do it period. So where do we go from here. Marshall so These articles get passed out of committee. Today I assume on a party line vote. We have no indication that there's a Democrat on judiciary. WHO's not in favor of these? These articles of impeachment and judiciary is known to be a a more partisan committee of all the committees on on Capitol Hill And then we see action on the House floor Lord but what happens between now and then yeah right so the question is going to be. How many Democrats are going to break ranks and joined the Republicans a few have already stated their opposition? No big surprises there I think that the the same guys that voted against authorizing the inquiry are going to be voting against impeachment number two of those Jeff Andrew of of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota. That's right so no big surprise there I don't think that anybody really believes that. Either of these articles of impeachment each mint will get voted down by the house. It seems like there's a They've crossed that threshold based off of where we are right now. That could change but You know is it going to issue going to drop. Is Nancy Pelosi to lose more to this. Point where it's kind of embarrassing and people will sort of get second thoughts and feel like it's limping. Something over to the Senate or will they keep it in the low single digits. Maybe you can count it on one hand and say well it's too bad that we didn't get any Republicans but look we still have a clear majority very few defections and we did our jobs and now we'll kick it over to our colleagues in the upper

"To Gordon Sogndal and then with the ten second statement he changed everyone in there a quid pro quo as I testified previously with regard to the requested White House call and the White House meeting the answer is yes there was a quid pro quo at least he presumed there was Mike Turner Republican congressman from Ohio who along with the least step phonic Republican from New York has really taken over this hearing also Jim Jordan also of Ohio taken over these hearing and getting to the absolute heart of what this is about it's about conjecture it's about here say it's about presumption it's not about actual fact the presumption is that there was a quid quo pro quo there isn't any direct evidence however that there was Gordon Sunwing can barely presume that there was a presumption is not testimony presumption is opinion and Turner in this two minute segment gets to the heart of what it was that someone was actually testifying and what it was that he actually knew turns out not much after you testified German Shiffrin on give a press conference and said he gets to impeach the president I'd states because your testimony and if you pull up C. N. N. today right now they're banner says Solomon ties trump to withholding aid is that your testimony today Mister that's a master someone that you have evidence that Donald Trump tied the investigation because I don't think you're saying that I've said repeatedly congressman I was presuming I also said that president trump so no one ever did not just the present Giuliani didn't tell you Mulvaney didn't tell yet nobody Pompeii didn't tell yet nobody else on this planet told you that Donald Trump was tying aid to these investigations is that correct I think I already testify don't answer the question is that correct no one on this planet told you that Donald Trump was tying this aid to the investigation because if your answer is yes then the chairman's wrong and the headline on CNN is wrong no one on this planet told you that president trump was tying a two investigations yes Sir now yes so you really have no testimony today that ties president trump to a scheme to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for these investigations other than my own presumption which is nothing I mean that's what are said to you know what hearsay evidence is an ambassador here say is when I testified what someone else told me you what made up testimony is made up testimonies when I just presume it I mean you're just assuming all of these things and then you're giving them the ants evidence that they're running out of doing press conferences in CNN's headline is saying that your saying the president I'd states should be impeached because he tied aid to investigations and you don't know that correct I never said the president added states should be impeached no but you did you have left people with the confusing impression that you were giving testimony that you did not you do not have any evidence that the president I'd states was tied to withholding aid from Ukraine in exchange for investigations I you'll back that ladies and gentlemen is how you cross examine a witness and that is why you will never hear that exchange between Mike Turner of Ohio importance on land ever again it was devastating it was to the point it got the witness to admit that he didn't have first hand knowledge of anything that in fact he didn't even have hearsay evidence he had presumptions no one directly told them that there was any sort of quid pro quo in fact the one thing he can directly testify about his one interaction with president trump on this he testified to the exact opposite I believe I just asked him an open ended question Mister chairman what do you want from Ukraine I keep hearing all these different ideas and theories and this and that what do you want and it was a very short abrupt conversation he was not in a good mood and he just said I want nothing I want nothing I want no quid pro quo hello Lansky to do the right thing something to that effect that was it that was the only thing you had first hand knowledge of with the actual decision making coming from president trump that was is what interaction interestingly enough Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson on the program earlier this week said the exact same thing Johnson said the exact same thing in a letter to Congress that trump told him in a phone call right before Johnson and senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut went to Kiev went to Ukraine to meet with Ukrainian president a lot of errors in ski that he wanted no quid pro quo he wanted so let's get to do the right thing he didn't want anything to get in exchange you wanted to Lenski to do the right thing later in the testimony what did you presume the right thing to be to do what he ran on trump said what did you presume what he ran on meant to root out corruption because that's what he was elected to do even the Democrats attorney was struggling it seemed the attorney that Democrats tired in the house intelligence committee to ask questions on their behalf to try to get to the evidentiary value that someone was going to provide even he seemed a little bit flummoxed by the fact that this guy doesn't have any actual knowledge he doesn't have any knowledge at all he doesn't have any any evidence all he has is his own presumption reference the fact that Ukraine needed to do these investigations in order to lift the eight I read I think I referenced I didn't say that Ukraine had to do the investigations I think I said that we heard from Mr Giuliani that that was the case so that helps to inform your presumption correct correct so it wasn't really a presumption you heard from Mister guiliani well I didn't hear from Mr Giuliani about the aid I heard about the for respond two thousand sixteen and you understood at that point as we discussed two plus two equals four that the aid was there as well that was the problem Mister Goldman no one told me directly that the aid was tied to anything I was presuming it was this is getting laughable here directly from Rudy guiliani about Burris smile and twenty sixteen the two investigations that president trump wanted but Giuliani just never bothered to tell him that this was tied to the eight never heard from a living soul that any investigation or anything at all in fact was tied to the aid now even with a witness who has no actual evidence to as only presumptions you would think that he would have some sort of way of verifying what it was that he is recollecting unfortunately and I made a note of this yesterday as psalm one was testifying he made a point you made a big point to inform right up front that he took no notes he does not have any contemporaneously memos of conversations of meetings of phone calls of anything and as you would expect the Republican attorney Steve caster absolutely decimated him on that you don't have records you don't have your notes because you didn't take notes you don't have a lot of recollections I mean this is the the like the tri factor of unreliability isn't isn't that true well what I'm trying to do today is to use the limited information I have to be as forthcoming as possible with you in the rest of the committee and as these recollections of been refreshed by subsequent testimony by some taxing emails that I've now had access to I think I filled in a lot of blanks but a lot of it's speculation a lot of it is your gas and we're talking about a you know an impeachment of the president I'd states so the the evidence here are to be pretty darn good I've been very clear as to when I was presuming and I was presuming on the eight he was presuming on everything he was presuming that there were ties between the aid and not just an investigation into Burris ma or the twenty sixteen election meddling supposedly happening by the Ukrainian government he was presuming about everything that presumption however is been taken to be fact it is taken to be sold damning by the media and Democrats whom they are apparently just running with talking points with out ever actually allowing you to understand the difference between presumption an actual evidence to understand the difference between valuable testimony and speculation this is speculation every witness that has been called thus far in fact has been speculated they don't have first hand knowledge they heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend and all of this is being based on bill Taylor reading in a New York times article that Rudy Giuliani wanted to an investigation into Joe Biden and what is this all get back to you it should be noted Joe Biden talking to the council on foreign relations and I believe the beginning of twenty eighteen bragging about how in twenty sixteen he went over to you crime and just happened to force the Ukrainian government to drop a prosecution by firing a prosecutor general who just happened to be looking into his son's company beret smallholdings again there is a legitimate reason to investigate that sort of thing independent of political considerations but it's every witness has repeatedly said there is no tie between that investigation or an investigation into what Ukraine might have been doing in twenty sixteen and the release of the eight in fact the Lenski himself has confirmed over and over and over that they didn't know the aid was being withheld until a month after the phone call think about this from a logical perspective if the Ukrainians were getting pressure through back channels from Rudy Giuliani and president trump himself in that phone call with so let's get on July twenty fifth how could they therefore have no idea when they talked with Ron Johnson and Chris Murphy in that meeting on September first in Kiev that the aid was being delayed how could they have no idea why the aid was being away how could they expressed confusion and Chris Murphy himself said on face the nation he said again in a letter to house investigators that the Ukrainian government was confused about why the aid was being withheld well if there was a quid pro quo if Rudy guiliani had been working since April or may to get the Ukrainians to investigate the bidens then wouldn't the Ukrainian government biological necessity no why the aid was withheld if the aid really was tied to that investigation if Rudy Giuliani was really engaging on the behest of trump get a quid pro quo then the Ukrainians would have known the reason for the a delay Hey we haven't made this public announcement yet that we're investigating the Biden we better do that otherwise the aid won't flow they never said that in fact the lead ski members of his government and everyone who has ever been asked since there was no pressure we were just a little confused why this aid was being withheld you know what's interesting is even Democrats in a rare moment of honesty appeared to be realizing.

"To the right one thing that is that is that even if it's sort of out of sequence in time right that won't matter for the ads that Republicans will cut so that was good for them another key moment for Republicans was when Ohio congressman Mike Turner asked Sunland why he thought military it was being held back as part of the quid pro quo he alleged was happening no one on this planet told you that president trump was tying a two investigations yes or no yes so you really have no testimony today that ties president trump to a scheme to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for these investigations other than my own presumption which is nothing so the Democrats again trump did it and he said he did it if if you didn't think that the phone call constituted him pressuring foreign countries for help against his chief political adversary at this moment he then went out and did it on camera and said in through the Chinese into said yeah I hope the Chinese go after the bite so the challenge for the Democrats is is an interesting one it's not about proving that trump did it it's about keeping the narrative clean right it's about keeping that clean narrative going for me yet solid definitely help them do it but whether or not when they get to the end of this Americans will feel like yeah this was worse going through all this over yeah this was worth it that's the question that hangs out there for Democrats in their hopes and twenty twenty just going back to that the Democrats versus Republicans here I know congressman Jordan entrance defense said he said they needed to be a public.

"Inquiry an embassy official told investigators that he overheard president trump asking his ambassador. Gordon's online of bank the investigation. Let's discuss so Republicans say this call isn't any any different Mike. Turner said it this morning. What you said is not any different than what he said in the phone call with Zielinski which is pushing for investigations into the Biden's that they know that that's happening? We should point out. Turner said that's it's not okay. I mean the ultimate question here which to Adam shifts credit he keeps bringing it back to in these hearings is. Is it acceptable for the president to be that. The President President of the United States is attempting to bribe a foreign power in exchange for personal gain. I know from working in government for almost twenty years as other people at this table have that it is always far worse. The ink is far worse than what people are presenting. So yes. They're saying it doesn't matter they shouldn't be worried about it. But looking at last week you had all these incredibly credible and powerful powerful and compelling Foreign Service officers people have served our country not in a partisan way making the case that the president did something for personal gain. I wouldn't feel good if I were them. I'm not sure what they're saying. Publicly what do you make of it all okay. So if I look at the strategically I don't know who's advising the president but I'm going to give a shout out to Paul Begala. When when he was going through the Clinton administration was going through the same thing he literally put the president on northbound train with a vision for the American people? Oh so that they could focus on something else and I think that that is one of the things that is missing here is that you've got the president that is tweeting out while von on of it is testifying and it's not helping him at all I. I really do believe that. The president really has to focus on what he's doing for the American Erkin people the economy jobs. The fact that things are going well I think in this country instead of going back to the be areas that don't help him. Universal background checks suggests you know. Gosh there are things that I think that are even better that we've been working on for such a long onto his that have gone gone array immigration reform. We're absolutely going to run out of money in November twenty first government opened and that's the basis so congresswoman love brought up the brought up the tweet from the president during the trial trial during the testimony. Take a listen. Here's Congressman Schiff. The Chairman of the committee reading the tweet to ambassador. You're in real time. What effect do you think that has on other witnesses? Willingness to come forward and an expose wrongdoing. Well it's very intimidating designed to intimidate is it not. I can't speak to what the president is trying to do. But I think the effect is to be intimidating so congresswoman. You're on the House Judiciary Committee which will ultimately draft or not drafted the articles of impeachment. Is it it seems to be that the chairmanship has saying is saying that might be in the articles of impeachment. It's witness intimidation. Do you agree. I definitely think witness intimidation could be We are looking at all the evidence. We're going to wait for it to come to us. We'll have a fair process to evaluate that that including the President's council testifying if he wants to. But here's the thing I think this week. This last week was a somber moment for the country. It was a good moment lament for the facts and it was a very bad moment for president trump because over and over again you have the same patterns by the way the same patterns that were articulated in the Muller report port. My questioning of Robert Muller was around witness tampering and witness intimidation judiciary. So this is a pattern but the thing is we're seeing it unfold in front of people. President bribing a foreign ally to investigate a political opponent. Get involved in the in the election and withholding this critical eight for a country. That is in a very very destabilizing region and position year expression makes it look like Scott that you don't buy you don't think that's what it's intimidation. No look I think the Democrats would be on a lot firmer ground here. If they wouldn't want to continue to try to impeach the president over his tweets that doesn't make it technically smart. I mean it was. I think his testimony could have come and gone Friday without much notice. What is frankly had he not elevated But putting was the highlight of the low light of the day I thought that putting it in the articles of impeachment Strikes me is is a is a massive overreach inch and they may want to go back to their focus groups. They've already focused group this once and try to figure out what to call The impeachment and they may want to go back and see if impeaching a president over his tweets works. Look it referring to a watch. It just to explain for viewers. You're referring to a Washington Post story that the D triple C. The Democratic Camp Campaign Committee ask participants in a focus group weather quid pro quo. Extortion bribery was more compelling. And they they figured to to Nix. The Latin yeah just just the way. The founders drew it up. Go have a focus group for your campaign committee. We should do all right. Thanks for being here really appreciated it. It has been a string of not so beautiful days in the neighborhood as public impeachment hearings seem only to.

"Won re election in Louisiana's governor her despite president trump putting his full support behind the Republican challenger and traveling to the state campaign twice in the past two weeks trying to make the Louisiana race a referendum on impeachment this as new details piling up quickly in the impeachment in Greece Saturday newly released transcripts revealed that former National Security Council official. Tim Morrison testified. Fighting Ambassador. Gordon claimed to be acting at president trump's direction in his dealings with Ukraine and those dealing included according to Morrison Silane directly telling ailing too Ukrainians to publicly announce investigations into the Biden's. If they wanted that military aid released. This puts even more pressure on Sunlen ahead of his expected public testimony on Wednesday this on top of new testimony Friday from US State Department official David home to describe the phone call. He overheard between Sunland and president trump. According according to a copy of his opening statement homes heard silence say quote Presidents Alinsky. Loves your ass I then heard. President trump asked so he's going to do the investigation ambassador. Simon replied quote. He's GonNa do it. Adding that Dolinsky will do anything you ask him to joining me now. A member of the House Intelligence Committee Republican Congressman Mike. Turner of Ohio Congressman. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. I want to start with that testimony from David Home to top political advisor at the. US Embassy in Ukraine. He says he heard President Trump's directly we asked about whether it's Alinsky was going to do the investigation and that song made it clear that the president was asking you about investigation into the Biden's what was your reaction. Well the travesty here. Jake is that this is testimony. That's continuing to happen down in the basement of the capital and it's not public. You should be playing the tape not leaked transcripts scripts to you as you know. I'm really under a gag order because the way that Adam Schiff is doing this in secret you don't have the actual testimony and I can't comment on it but let's say this first first off because I think this is important. Clearly we all understand that the alinsky presents Alinsky of Ukraine would not do anything for Donald Trump because obviously the investigations never happen. But but let me give you an example of a real time of the danger of this happening in secret and why. This shouldn't be happening. Nothing by the classified is happening down there on the testimony. You just heard from Ambassador Taylor last week. Ambassador Taylor spoke of a phone call. That happened between ambassadors. Sean Lennon Master Tailor. It was a phone call. That was of much speculation in the media. Much leaks were about it. And that's where they had been texting and ambassador. Sunland said call me many networks including your own reported that this was scandalous and that he was trying to to hold back the information as to what the conversation was when in fact song that had already testified down on the secret chamber that the reason why he said call me wasn't nefarious. He just didn't want to continue typing and ambassador Taylor. Last week confirmed that once they got on the phone together. That Solomon reported Taylor if there was no quid pro quo but yet there were days of reports that that text was going to be the smoking gun. And the reason why you didn't know that all those songs that had already testified is because this is happening in secret and Jacob. This should not be happening in secret. Okay so you have an issue with there being prior depositions even though of course that's how Republicans around the committee when they were in charge as well but beyond that sir. I'm just asking you to address the Saab. Stop sexually this up. Actually no we did classified. But you should have a problem with Jake you should. I like all the information. Of course I like all the information to be in the public and I'm happy that the releasing the transcripts and I'm happy that they're having the hearings in the open in the public now absolutely one hundred percent more transparency. Please that said reruns. I'm asking you to address the substance of what David said he heard which was president trump telling Gordon song lend so he's going to do the investigation. That must alarm you. Well the I can only comment on the portion which is public. which is you know ambassador Taylor? And his opening statement right last week reference this phone conversation. So I'll talk about ambassador Taylor said because under the gag order from Adam Schiff. I'm not able to talk about David. Home said so. What ambassador Taylor I said is that the aide had overheard the word investigations? Now as you know you personally watch. Donald trump at a microphone say that he thought that Ukraine should a undertake an investigation of them. And of the Biden's connection to that so you actually know as much as as he does. That's a scandalous about the fact that he claims is to have overheard this conversation which happened the day after the conversation with presidents. Alinsky that conversation which you have the readout of the actual words of the president and he's confirmed is the same thing so he offers nothing new. He offers the same information still no quid. Pro Quo still. No Smoking Gun. Still the same information but yet according to the Democrats because they're leaking information to you. It's a bombshell. Well I mean Gordon Sunlen. According to Tim Morrison who testified side transcript was released on Saturday so you can talk about it. There's No gag order it's been released to Morrison said it's Onlin went over to your AMAC. One of of the top aides to presidents Linski came back and said this Morrison saying silent quote related to me that the president was giving him the Instruction Silent Mick Mulvaney. They both report to the president. And according to Sunland silent. Told Your Mac if you want this money any released publicly announce these investigations. So does that not alarm you well. Of course all of that is alarming alarming. And as I've said from the beginning I I I think this is. This is not okay. The President United States shouldn't even in the original phone call a beyond the phone with the president of another country and raise his political opponent. So no this is not okay but if you look at Solomon's testimony which is also public. He says that the direction that he received from the President I'd States was no quo quo and then in fact that he said he wants nothing he just wants him to do the right thing. So salmon actually testify and this. This is the first time by the way that you have. Direct testimony of someone speaking the President and relating what the president has said and what he says directly contradicts this. This additional these statements that are largely hearsay of someone saying I heard from someone else who heard from someone else. When you ask Shawn and you've got his testimony? I think it's around. Page one twenty four. He actually says I was told by the president had states. I want nothing no quid pro quo. I just want him to do the right thing. So we'll have to wait for Sunland testimony which is direct testimony not testimony of somebody who says they heard from somebody else that somebody L. said something. I hope sideline tells the truth. Because he had to amend his his his deposition. I hope everybody tells agree and I certainly would like. Is that the people who are leaking information to you guys. Tell the truth because restoring after story happens where you report what happened transcripts and then when they come out they don't match that's not not being being straight you well most most of what happened on that phone. Call between Sunlen and Taylor and you could go to page around two twenty five. It isn't a transplant. I'm really in in the interest of time. I would just like to focus on what the president did. And what you think about it because I guess one question I have. Is You have Assan Wind. And you have multi publicly saying that in order for people or either publicly saying or saying it in their depositions behind closed doors that have been released released in order for them to get the money or to get a White House meeting. They need to do these political investigations. We have Rudy Giuliani. Also pushing for these political investigations into the Biden's Haydn's do you think that song actually have that. You don't have that because you actually have the tests on more. He says the opposite. Jake he says the opposite he says it president trump. Well that's another thing that's interesting. He says President Trump says. There's no quid pro quo. Tell them there's no quid pro quo. But they need to do such and such so just saying that something isn't isn't to quote quid pro quo when you are demanding that someone says or does something doesn't vanish doesn't make the quid pro quo inherent vanished. Do you really think that there are no Ukrainians who were let me ask a question. Please answer do really think. There were no Ukrainians who under the impression that they needed to publicly. Lee Announce these investigations in order to get the White House meeting or eighty four hundred million dollars. They so desperately needed you know Ukrainians were under that impression. The only two that I can speak to because I'm obviously not psyche to what Ukrainians think but the president of Ukraine and the foreign minister. And for Mr just recently came out with his statement. Payment have both stated that they were not under that impression they did not believe that it was tied and they did not believe that there was was pressure. So I can only tell you. What is the public accounts? Accounts of what Ukrainian statements have been and their statements have been that that's not true. Let me ask you another question. President trump was attacking ambassador. Yvonna on a bitch as she was starting her testimony on Friday he tweeted quote everywhere. Marie Ivanovich went turned bad. Apparently blaming her before what. It's happened in Somalia. What's happened in Ukraine other places chairmanship? Read her the tweet during the hearing. I'm sure she would have read it during the break anyway. She said that she found it. Intimidating does it concern you at all that a witness found what president trump tweeted to be intimidated. Well I mean Jake I think along with most people I find the president's tweets generally a unfortunate but let's say this that I think is very important about all that and that is is that Adam Schiff has been on a three or quest to impeach this president. He replaced the staff at the intelligence committee with prosecutors instead of impeachments weapons terrorism. Some of the like he changed the staff so it became an impeachment staff for three years. He's been pursuing it so it's kind of laughable than in the middle of the hearing he he reads a witness a tweet that she's up till that point unaware up and says shes am Eureka. I have another reason to impeach the president. He's had reasons for three years. He's GonNa continue to. He's on the quest for impeachment. He's obsessed with impeaching the president. I'd states and a majority of the Democrats were already on record of wanting to pizzas president before the Ukrainian call. It even happens so I'm certain. Continue to see the long list of new reasons. Why Adam Schiff thinks? This president should be impeached congressman shift. But but you do find it concerning concerning that he witnessed the president. Okay but you do find concerning that a witness in real time found the president's tweet to be quote intimidating. That is something something that concerns you. It's certainly not impeachable and it's certainly not criminal and it's really not witness intimidation. It certainly wasn't trying to prevent her or would it have prevented her from testifying. She was Actually in the process of testifying so what what's unfortunate between witnesses. She's intimidated. How is is it not witness intimidation? Well well there's a difference between. I feel intimidated. I'm intimidated to testify. which is what Adam Schiff was saying? She was saying well. You're intimidated now. So you won't won't testify completely or fully and that's not the case clearly. She testified completely and fully. I was there. Hopefully you watched it. She was in no means intimidated and prevented from testify. Well just like you're not a mind reader. I'm not a mind reader. I have no idea whether it affected her testimony. She says she found it intimidating. Is it not possible that she held back or shaded her answers because she didn't want to upset the most powerful person in the universe any further. Is that not possible. But well I think you overstay Donald Trump's powers hopefully But we had a lot of discussions with ambassador about feelings. I think that the real aspect was when we had straight testimony and I think that testimony was not inhibited Congressman Mike Turner of Ohio. It's great and date and we appreciate your time. Thank you A. US Ambassador Acetone. President trump that.

"Fabricated it's not real it's not what was said and then later after we called him on it and said that's not what was in the phone call that is not ours in the transcript he comes back later says it was a parity well only in the Democrats Fantasyland is that this is this is a serious issue they want to impeach the president United States they're accusing him of of crimes and then you fabricate nonsense okay that's what they did yes yes that's all nonsense none of that happened and then you come back and say what you get busted on it always just parity outlets laugh about it nobody's laughing nobody was laughing he wanted people to believe he was deceiving people he was lying to people he wanted people to believe that's what trumpet sad. think I ought to be forced to resign trumps exactly right he should be forced to resign in disgrace. but you know what folks it is in and of itself is self contained micro cosm of this whole thing they're all they're all embellishing like acting as though the Muller report contains ten different pieces of evidence of collusion there isn't one. so we went back and we decided. to put this this parity. that the chairman executed we decided to boil it down into one sound bite so that you can listen to it again this is the essence of what the president communicates we've been very good to your country very good no other country has done as much as we have but you know what I don't see much reciprocity here I hear what you want I have a favor I want from you though and I'm gonna say this only seven times so you better listen good I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent understand lots of it on this in on that I'm gonna put you in touch with people not just any people want to put you in touch with Attorney General United States my Attorney General bill Barr he's got the whole weight of American law enforcement behind him and I'm gonna put you in touch with Rudy you're gonna love him trust me you know what I'm asking and so I'm only gonna say this a few more times in a few more ways and by the way don't call me again I'll call you when you've done what I asked this is a like parity. none of that happened. trump didn't ask anybody to dig up dirt. make up dirt. I'm gonna say this only seven times trump didn't say anything seven or eight times. you better listen good I want you to make up dirt on my political opponents understand lots of it on this and on that I'm gonna put you in touch with me none of that happened. he said he was going to put him in touch with Rudy and bill Maher but that's about crowd strike it's about the twenty sixteen the investigation into trump. I was watching it when it happened I was dumbfounded nobody stopped him I was down there wasn't a single Republican. that pounded. his fist on the table in front of him and stop the proceedings and demanded an explanation for what Shiffrin just said it was it it was said the end it was allowed to go uncontested for a half hour or longer before anybody said anything about it. so I'm emailing and chatting with people before the program yesterday asking about this and I can't get anybody think was that big a deal. and to me it was the only big deal about hold hearings yesterday. when you've got the chairman making up this stop why did that not stop people in their tracks why did not arrest people and demand that they focus attention on shift and quality now before it will eventually he wise by Mike Turner who is a Republican from Ohio while the German was speaking I actually had someone text me is he just making this up and and yes yes he was because sometimes fiction is better than the actual words of the text look at the American public were smart they have the transcript Mike Turner name some upset about it. constituents asking me the mechanism yes yes yes because sometimes fiction is better than the actual work. the guy is a flat out pathological liar. within can't. and we just that's just the Democrats that's just old Joe on that's just pencil necked man that's just the Democrats on able to deal with reality. so when chef was called on it this is how are you tempted to weasel out of it as a side I want to mention that my colleague is right on both counts start okay but also my summary the presence call was meant to be at least part in parity the fact that that's not clear is a separate problem in and of itself of course the present never said. if I fit understand members save seven more times my point is that's the message that the crane present was receiving and not so many words all we had was that the president did not tell him to make up dirt on anybody the president didn't tell him not to call him back in Philly had a lot of dirt that was made up on anybody. didn't tell anybody anything like that. if I were trump might be going crazy with this stuff. you know as well as I how do you deal with people lying about you all the time it's the age old question what's the response happy and if you respond to March into stridently than the reactor must really bother you must be some truth to it and now it's it's what other people have to come to the defense when this stuff happens. brief time out fastest three hours in media proven everyday..

Chuck Todd Hey F. truck the Democrats are hoping that this would be a compelling movie version of the model report everything that's form have we have a look at the no movie with the Best Actor the lead person here at the fewest words spoken and the problem here is you basically the narrative that Democrats are we're hoping that Bob Miller with the timing is essentially they're telling him he's saying that's true yes that's correct the worst thing I wrote it down there to to me that this narrative nightmares for the democratic them across cannot be surprised by this they had to subpoena his testimony today he told them he said I won't say anything beyond the report all but saying please do not call me to come and testify they should have been prepared so Democrats who would advertise this as you know the bringing to life of the moment report Robert Muller does not appear to be on board with that strategy and he's not pushing back against the Republican attacks there is no urgency coming from a smaller so therefore Savannah I don't see how this ever leads to Democrats by the way it's going to step two which is a distress they're depressed date can't believe they they they they can't put the Democrats didn't load this before they put up there I think they know what they're doing fox they know what they were hoping they put him up there hoping for magic they are convinced that they look they they don't need Muller did really seriously Mahler sitting there while they speechifying when they're supposedly asking questions and if mothers as well it's mostly a when mother

on the EIB network a lot thank you very much for taking my call Mister little officer I'm sitting here spoke your lawn seven more farmers move your shelves my comment is this I think that Muller is say just the state down never Trumper regardless of what his Republican background supposed to date I think he's like a he's ones Rockefeller Republicans who is totally embarrassed by the weight from from this administration and no matter what trump does he's going to be against it but he's also one of these guys they can't lie because he is not meant to be that way well I agree with you muddy the water as much as you and that's why he had a press conference about a month and a half ago it just might muddy the water had nothing to do with anything solid but it's it's the it puts the Attorney General Barr out to make an explanation of what was going on right to keep the no you're right about the smaller smaller is there's no question is a never Trumper and there's no question he is part of

you're wondering what a Rockefeller Republican it's a reference to Nelson rocky Rockefeller who was always running against Nixon he was a rich guy from New York and he got the Republican convention
