How Watergate Set the Stage for the Trump Impeachment Inquiry
"The conversation you just heard between Richard Nixon and his former Attorney General John Mitchell in one thousand nine hundred ninety three was later used news to convict Mitchell on charges related to the Watergate cover up and to send him to prison Mitchell was one of several officials who wound up in prison after after Watergate less than there is that while trump may consider himself to be invincible thanks to that can't indict memo at the DOJ history suggests the people surrounding the president are not always safe. It was the release of these secret tapes that ultimately brought Nixon down but like trump Nixon fought to keep keep those tapes secret he did not admit to his crimes out in the open trump. Meanwhile not only admits to his crime because sometimes commits them on the White House lawn likewise China should start an investigation into the by because what happened in China is just about as bad as what it happened with with Ukraine so I would say that presidents Alinsky if it were me I would recommend that they start it into devices because nobody has any doubt that they weren't crooked. This really should come as no surprise because Donald Trump has repeatedly welcomed and even solicited foreign Kim's Hain help and he has a history of admitting his misdeeds on camera Russia if you listening I hope you're able to find the thirty thousand emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded. Mightily by our press regardless of recommendation I was going to fire. Call me knowing there was no good time to and in fact when I decided to you just do it. I said to myself. I said you know this rusher. Thing with trump and Russia is a made up story. You Might WanNA listen. I don't there's nothing wrong was listening. If somebody called from a country Norway we have information on your Oh. I think I'd want to hear you're like Nixon. Trump has managed to induce lots and lots of government officials from his vice president to the secretary of state diverse White House officials and diplomats to his is George Mitchell Attorney General William Bar to join in trump has already landed people in prison those who committed crimes to please or to help trump along with many others who were indicted and Robert Muller's Russia probe so the question for trump's people the people ladies corrupted as part of his own immensely corrupt government. Is that a dirty they willing going to get an are they risking sharing the fate of people like Mitchell in Flint and Michael Cohen Paul Manafort join now's Elizabeth Holtzman author of the case for impeaching in trump former assistant watergate special prosecutor Jill wine banks. MSNBC legal analyst my widely MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR BARBARA mcquade and Korean jean-pierre appear chief public affairs officer at move on Dot Org. Thank you all for being here. I'M GONNA go right down the middle of my interesting here and go right to Joe Wide Banks because let let me play you. This is congressman. This is actually a Republican congressman back in nineteen seventy three actually calling Nixon's impeachment take a listen to this after having read and reread and sifted and tested this massive information which came before us. I've come to the conclusion that Richard M Nixon Nixon has beyond a reasonable doubt committed impeachable offenses which in my judgment are of such sufficient magnitude egg the Tude that he should be removed from office. That's his name is representative Lawrence Hogan and I believe he is the father of the current governor of Maryland Larry Hogan. If I'm not wrong long so it is possible when people see the evidence they come to the conclusion that the president is committed high crimes and misdemeanors. That's high crimes and misdemeanors but what I want to ask you about jail is the people around Richard Nixon because not not a few of them went to prison. Can you just remind folks who around Nixon wound up not impeachment truck but on the going to jail truck well it was a big group of people who went to jail. It was his White House counsel John Dean who also cooperated with US and was I'm waiting for the John Dean of this scandal to come forward and it may already be the whistle blower it could be Mister Taylor from the State Department in addition his Attorney General John Mitchell went to jail his chief of staff went to jail Mr Haldeman even his chief domestic adviser. Mr Ehrlichman went to jail. There were a big cast of characters that went to jail because they committed crimes James and they did it because he set a tone that it was all okay I m above the law and whatever I do cannot be criminal. We have clear evidence that Donald Trump abetted by William bar is in exactly the same position of I'm invincible. I can do anything he has publicly stated dated that I have total authority to do whatever I want and that was the auditioned memo that attorney general by wrote to get the job so we're in really a the big fix here because the government has become completely lawless and they must be held accountable that is essential and I believe like Acre Representative Hogan that facts matter and I believe that even the most loyal Republicans who are now standing silent they may not be coming out for impeachment different but they aren't defending this terrible threat to national security in fact to world security because by not giving the equipment that was necessary to protect checked Ukraine. They are leaving Ukraine vulnerable to Russian further incursions and that's a terrible thing I mean even Mitt Romney Mitt Romney who who Korean I will remind folks. He did that humiliating auditions where he sat for dinner with Donald Trump to try to become secretary state the irony being had had he actually gotten the job. The likelihood is that Mitt Romney wouldn't have done what might pump pay does it wouldn't have been willing to go around selling these crazy conspiracy theories to prove approve Russia innocent and wouldn't have been willing to ignore subpoenas e but he'd be much more likely to do the right thing. This is what he wrote on twitter. He said when the only American citizen trump single singles out for China's investigations political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process it's strains credulity to suggest it is anything politically motivated so at least there is the chance that there are awesome other Lawrence Hogan's. Maybe yeah I think that's right. I think Republicans a Senate Republicans in particular because we know that lawns who the Republicans who support Donald Trump up in the house. They're all like diehards. They're the ones who out out there. It's the Senate Republicans that we really kind of have to key in on and they've been pretty quiet right. They've been hiding except for four Ben Sasse and as you mentioned Mitt Romney and I think that's probably why Mitt Romney didn't become secretary of state. Donald Trump knew that because what does Donald Trump want right. He wants loyalty which is why he's getting from Pompeo you know where he's getting from pants and it's a one way street with Donald Trump. He will throw all them under the bus as he tried to pence for doing that. Press press press reading where he was just kind of like you should go look at pences phone Oh yeah and threw him under the bus so this is where we are and we're pumpkins have to really think about this. They have to think. Are they really going to really grab onto this wagon this unstable wagon that trump has having now who is a one you know kind of doing this this this this kind of war room on his his own hell bent on doing it and it's a twitter deck and it's really that's it and watching Cable News TV and this is where we are right now. Republicans really have to step up here and the other thing too is. We don't know how this is going to end up. We've never been in this place before impeachment on national security so we we just this is unchartered territory. Yeah absolutely and Barbara WanNA come back because you're so between what green is it which wine banks has said there are a number of people who are allowing themselves to be corrupted along with Donald Trump and the Nixon example is that Nixon didn't go to prison but a whole lot of people around him who you just heard Jill wine banks mentioned went to prison because people willing to commit the crime for him. There are willing to help him to do what he wanted done and once you've done it he may not have liability under that. Doj Memo but you might and I wonder if when you look at the fact that the Attorney General of the United States is flying around the world attempting to prove this conspiracy theory that it was Ukraine Russia that it attack our election when you have the State Department the head of the state our Secretary of State participating on the call lying to the American people about being on the call in which Donald Trump is pressuring a foreign government to help him with an election in which he's committing a crime for which apparently he can't be prosecuted right now where you have senior White House officials hiding hiding the evidence of transcript of Donald Trump's calls in a place that they're not supposed to be in a high security server when you have foreign diplomats pressuring Ukraine essentially trying to strong arm them to help Donald Trump with this conspiracy theory investigations in exchange for aid by could go on and on and on the number of people who are participating participating do any of those people Barbara face potential legal liability. Can any of these people pretend as the vice president and the secretary of state are pretending they don't have to listen to subpoenas but they like trump are above the law no joy any one of these people could be charged with a crime as we saw as Jill explained in the Watergate scandal. You know whenever you've got a public corruption investigation even at the just the garden variety the kind of cases that I was involved evolved with when you approach people you often tell them look you can be a witness or you're going to be a defendant in this case. The choice is yours and already I think we're seeing people people making that. Calculus Kurt Volker resigning abruptly last Friday and agreeing to come testify in bring those text messages which are incredibly Lee Damning. I have seen cases charged on far less where they are talking about the scheme and the scandal. I think Gordon Sunlen has extreme exposure exposure based on what is said in those I think Bill Taylor is someone at the State Department who looks like somebody who wanted to do the right thing.

"Robert Muller's Russia probe has been going on for twenty months now it'll be two years this spring. And it's been a pretty active investigation. Roger stone was the thirty fourth individual indicted zone facing seven felonies including lying to congress obstruction and witness tampering yesterday. He pleaded not guilty. And all that time, regardless of what has been reported. We have never heard the Justice department come out and give a status updates. No. It's going great. No muller. Just getting started. Certainly know. Hey, guys, he's wrapping it up. There's a reason for that law enforcement folks will tell you you never want to over promise, you never wanna tip off witnesses, and you never want to appear to be driven by anything other than the facts. But this week the man running the Justice department acting attorney general Matt Whitaker stepped out in front of the press for the first time. And when he said next made reporters, stop scribbling and look up it made colleagues puzzled and over the course of the last twenty four hours. It is made lawmakers furious ABC senior Washington reporter devonte wire is with us and Sudan this catches up. How did Whitaker get us here? Yeah. Well, this is a couple of days ago a press conference at the Justice department. Pretty ordinary affair. They were unveiling some new charges about the Chinese tech giant wall way into the indictment in two thousand twelve but was captivated. Everyone's attention comments made off the cuff by the acting attorney general at the end of the press conference, Brad, it was all something. He just sort of seemed to slip out there by accident. He was asked about the Muller report. I really not going to talk about opening ongoing investigation otherwise. But then he did talk about it. I've been fully briefed on the investigation facts and said he's looking forward to director Muller delivering the reports right now, you don't investigation is I think close to being completed and most remarkably he said, something sort of cryptic. He said he's comfortable that decisions that have been made are going to be reviewed. And so that sent everyone off into a tizzy because of course, as you know, the Justice department policy has been not to talk about ongoing investigations, which he just did. I get this unusual. But it's not like we were shocked. To hear that. Right. I mean word has been that Muller's wrapping it up, and yet there seemed to be real outrage over this. Why it set off a wave of criticism among Democrats and even some Republicans on Capitol Hill. I don't know why he knows that Muller will be allowed to finish his job. That's the goal. That's gonna happen. I don't know how you say that in light of the grand jury being extended six months, I think for the most part Brad were first trying to figure out what Matthew Whitaker was saying. They raised a lot of questions because he was a bit cryptic. But also the idea that he could perhaps be trying to say, no, judgment or to get done sooner. If it is a way to intimidate or silence. The investigation or bring it to a close. There is more than apple reason for saying, of course, down suggests that he could be reviewing the decisions that Muller has made a before making this report. Go public really alarmed a lot of people. In fact, Chris coons the democratic Senator from from Delaware called it chill. Getting a Bill Kristol one of the Republican commentators out. There said that he thought that this was an attempt to add pressure on Robert Muller. Muller isn't actually wrapping it up now people start getting suspicious, right?

First thing that are video games are clear rules. So it is an absolute fact that kids especially younger kids, but no kids who have a proper limits and boundaries. Have higher self esteem and kids with what we think is freedom, but it's actually chaos. A have lower self esteem kids want boundaries they want boundaries. So that they can be free. Kids want boundaries. So video games. Have boundaries boundaries and limits and rules, and they're consistent you input. A you get be every single time.

"McCarthy handy was on FOX this morning with Bill Hemmer. Right around eleven o'clock about an hour a little over an hour ago. And. He's read the indictment of of Roger stone. I'm assuming everybody knows by now that that stone was arrested in a pre-dawn rain much like the predawn raid captured Elian Gonzalez and sent him back home to the communist paradise of Cuba. Roger stone's asleep. And no doubt. This is an Andrew Weissmann move armed agents stormed into his home down near Fort Lauderdale at six a m. Two rows Tim from band and arrest him under an indictment for lying to investigators. Roger stone. Add not committed a crime until the Muller investigation began. Roger stone had not committed a crime until they began questioning him. Some of you might say, well, no, no, no Russia. If the Muller investigation were not up and running, and if if the Muller investigators had not talked to Rogers, thunders, no crime that stones committed here, and there's no crime alleged that he committed these crimes are process crimes in the media knows it the left knows it. And they're trying to say doesn't matter these these are crimes, and every one of them is a new associate of Trump that is linked to Trump and Trump is going down, and that's what they're sticking with. And that's what they're running with even though the investigators have known there is no Russian collusion, if they were filled with integrity, if they were honest, they would've told the American people a year ago, there isn't any collusion. There isn't any collusion with the Trump campaign and Russia weapon found any because there isn't any. And have continue their investigation into whatever. But they didn't why did they continue this fraud? Why did they continue this masterminded effort to convince the American people that the Russians changed votes and tampered with voting machines? And had an impact on the outcome of the election. They have done this on purpose knowing that it didn't happen. If anybody deserves to be investigated here. It is the investigators and the people who appointed them they say that stone lied to investigators. So did Hillary Clinton for crying out loud sorted half? A Hillary Clinton's campaign staff. Look at this headline. This is daily caller December four two thousand seventeen over a year ago. Top Clinton aides face no charges after making false statements to the FBI. The FBI agent who was fired from Robert Muller's Russia investigation team for sending anti-trump text messages conducted the interviews with to Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of Hillary's private E mail server. Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl mills or Houma Avidan faced legal consequences for their lives for their misleading statements, which they made an interviews last year that would be two thousand sixteen with FBI lead agent. Peter Struck stroke smirk. However, Michael Flynn, the former national security advisor pleaded guilty last week to lying during an interview when struck strokes Merck didn't even think he did lie. But that didn't matter the Muller. Muller wanted to turn everything upside down and tell you lied or not we're going to send you to jail. We're going to destroy your family. We're going to ruin you financially unless you give us what we want. Not only were Cheryl mills and Huma Abedin exonerated for telling lies. They were Cheryl mills was allowed to act as Hillary's lawyer. So that Hillary had attorney client privilege during the interview would struck strokes Merck. Roger Stalin committed a crime. Only after Mahler's thugs began talking to him. Same thing with general Flynn. Michael Flynn didn't commit a crime specially related to any of this so-called collusion. And pretty much the same thing with Manafort if you look at the indictment of Roger stone nothing in there to do with Russia or Russia collusion. He's accused of trying to get. The stolen emails the DNC via WikiLeaks. Every journalist under the sun was trying to get hold of those. That's right. Roger stone's been indicted for trying to get hold of WikiLeaks head. Everybody wanted to get hall of what WikiLeaks head. He's accused of making false statements about WikiLeaks before congress. These false statements are based on inconsistencies answers. Yeah. If somebody sits around ask you the same question fifty five to one hundred different ways, I guarantee you. You're going to have a bunch of different versions of your answer. Remember when Trump said, hey, Russia, if you're listening, maybe you'll get fined at thirty thousand Hillary me. I joke that that Trump obviously, it was telling. In a in an attempt to to goose these people. Theoretically, go after Trump now because he was doing the same thing that Roger stone has been indicted for doing trying to get hold of the emails from John Podesta that WikiLeaks head. Well, here's what Andy McCarthy said about this on FOX little over an hour ago. The question Bill hammer you woke up this morning. You saw guns drawn at Roger stone's house in Fort Lauderdale. Number twelve somebody number twelve. Three two one. I read that indictment, and what it says to me is that the special counsel and the FBI have known for at least a year probably much longer than that that there is no espionage conspiracy. And there was none between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign and because of their obsession for investigative secrecy. The thing that the country should have known the country hasn't been allowed to now. It's a situation where we've operated under the possibility that the person we elected president was suspected of being a Russian agent. They've known that wasn't true for a very long time. And they had an obligation to correct the record. Now, Andy has known this independently we've known this we've known there hasn't been any collusion since this began we've known that this was a hawks and the get go, but go back to Andy says here, I read the indictment of stone. And what the indictment says to me is the special counsel on the FBI. I have known for at least a year. Probably much longer than that that there is no espionage conspiracy. And there was none between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. He went on to say that this is completely outrageous that the country has been roiled the country's been turned upside down the country has been divided into partisan camps. Like, we haven't seen since the sixties all on a false premise that. The investigators have known was false for at least a year and maybe over a year during the interview he cited a Komi interview before congress in March of two thousand seventeen which pretty much indicates that they knew there was no espionage. And that's why they were planting spies in the Trump campaign to try to create espionage. There never has been any. And so this this is a. I don't know how to characterize this. It's so much more than a disservice. The investigators have known that. And they've sat by and they've watched all of these leaks from their office. He published as fact that Trump colluded with Russia that the evidence is just around the corner. We've had all these indictments of all these people, but not one of these indictments allege is anything to do with what everybody's been told happened every one of these crimes. Every one of these indictments. Is of criminal activity. That would not have happened were. They're not an investigation. Rogers dawn may be a lot of people don't like him. The guy's gonna political operatives in days he worked for Nixon. So that's one that's one black Mark against the guy. He's very public and he's very brazen. And he's very sticks his chin out and dares you to hit him he prides himself on being all kinds of tricksters, and and other techniques to aid the people for whom he's working. And so he's despise much. Like water was despised these despise much like Roger Ailes was despised. Simply because they were effective and work for the other team. But he had not committed a crime until Muller's investigators began questioning. So that's all we've got. Now the swamp the Washington establishment beside himself. The media can barely contain itself. It is it is so excited because they think that with every one of these indictments for getting closer and closer and closer to Trump. But the real thing about this is that there has been a false narrative that has been allowed to exist. That has been promoted that's been encouraged the belief in it has been encouraged by the very people who know it didn't happen. And I'm at my wit's end as to how to deal with this. Beyond calling people's attention to it. This is not the kind of thing that growing up you read novels, and you you see movies about this kind of espionage. But when you really think about is this is not the kind of injustice that actually happens in the United States. We have too many. Decent people in too many high places have too many checks and balances we've got. Too many states guard in place to to prevent the runaway wanton targeting and destruction. Of political opponents. But apparently, we don't. And it is. About reached my limit here in having an ability to express, my anger dismay? An outrage over this. Play sound bite number twelve again, not the whole thing. I just want you to listen the first couple of sentences here from Andy McCarthy who by the way. And is a former prosecutor the southern district of New York. He has great reverence for the law, and these legal institutions, the FBI the department of Justice is a former employee there, and he's not a never-trumper. But but he's is he's not all in on Trump. Like, I am. I'm just trying to give you. A foundational understanding of Andy's in a straight shooter straight down the middle of the laws. What counts to him? That's his chosen field. He's he's beside himself and distressed over. How all this has happened. He used to respect all these people. Call me. Muller? It's mystifying to to a lot of people that the safeguards that everybody is thought that are in place here just seem not to exist. But listen again to the the first couple of three sentences here I read that indictment, and what it says to me is that the special counsel and the FBI have known for at least a year probably much longer than that that there is no espionage conspiracy. And there was none between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. Stop right there. I want you to this digest that. I read that indictment, and what it says to me is that the special counsel and the FBI I've known for at least a year probably longer that. There is no espionage conspiracy in that. There was none between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. So what actually is going on here? He went on to say just to remind you that they've known it. Their obsession for investigative. Secrecy has prevented them from say there should have been a preliminary report for the good of the country to turn down the temperature on all of this. They read the news. They watch the news hell these people in the investigation have been feeding the news. These people in the Mueller investigation are the reason. We have this partisan divide. They could have calmed this down. They could have told in an interim report not the final. That there was no collusion. But then if they do that there's no reason to exist as far as they're concerned. And remember the objective here is to get Donald Trump, not Roger Stalin and not Michael Flynn. Not Paul Manafort, let me think a break we'll continue after this time. Rolls on do. Not.

"And what's weird is if in fact, Putin had something on him or Trump had some motivation to be acquiescent, Vladimir Putin? You would usually think that that would be behind closed doors, and he would at least in in Putin would probably understand he was going to put on a public face of resisting Putin and standing up for America against Russia. But he doesn't even. In in public. He just seems to fold like a cheap suit. That's correct. So if Putin were controlling Trump, he would probably tell him President Trump, you're going to have to act really tough toward us and then behind the scenes cut us some deals right act. Like, you are are are coming after us in public. You can say all you want about me and press conferences and say what a terrible person, I am the hind the scenes can you lift some of these sanctions and Trump might actually have the sort of political room to do some of that if he could talk tough if he could even sort of pretend to be tough toward Putin. So then does that undermine the Trump Russia suspicions? I think that it undermines the the kind of idea that there is a complex highly orchestrated tightly orchestrated conspiracy here. Okay. I knew it was not convinced that Trump could. Execute such a conspiracy. Yeah. But but that's not to say that I think that. The collusion claims are ridiculous because I think that they're real. And I think that there was so much collusion out in the open and behind the scenes leading to things like we talked about at the beginning of this podcast the effort by Mike Flynn to make good on some of these requests that Russia ahead. Get rid of these sanctions for us. I mean, there's a lawyer. Yeah. I I don't want to confuse correlation with causation. But even I have to admit the just the mere timing of so many of these things seems way too perfect possibly be Winstons. Yeah. I think so too. I mean, I I also think that. That this is it's hard for us to process because so much of it has happened out in the open, and then it's kind of an interesting mental exercise to think of these these interactions between Trump and Putin in a different way like his infamous lined or in the election Russia, if you're listening. I hope you find those emails those missing Hillary Clinton emails. We now know from Robert Muller Russia. In fact, was listening within hours they launch a spear phishing campaign hacking campaign against Clinton Email servers trying to get at that stuff didn't work. But I mean, Trump is in that moment saying so in front of the world, if we had learned, you know, months later that there was a Russian attempt to get it Hillary's missing emails, and that it followed by hours a secret communication from Trump to the Kremlin. I mean that would be one of the biggest scandals in American history since it's out in the open and staring at us in the face. It's hard to know what to make of it. Well, the million dollar question is what the heck does Putin have on Donald Trump some people's suspect that it's a sex tape or might be financial. Would you bet on it being something like that? Or maybe the compromise that he has Donald Trump is simply the fact that Putin helped him win the election. And maybe even that Trump might have known about it yet something it's something really tried to. Explore and tease out in the book. And I would put these sort of in a couple of areas of were that I would assign various levels of kind of credibility or emphasis, the idea of it's certainly possible given how Trump conducts himself that there's a pair of him with prostitutes. And I mean, I have to say, right. Why would he carry himself any differently in the Ritz Carlton in Moscow? Then he does at a Lake Tahoe golf course. Me daniels. Everything that's come out doesn't exactly discredit that idea. No. But but would that really something like that with that really give Putin definitive leverage over Trump, not not based on how he's been able to sort of shrug off all of these scandals..
