Unwanted Truths: Inside Trump’s Battles With U.S. Intelligence Agencies
"Us now is Robert Draper writer at large for the New York Times magazine. He's the author of several books including most recently to start a war how the Bush administration took America into Iraq Arbor draper has just published this landmark piece of reporting the Times magazine. It's called unwanted truth this inside trump's battles with US intelligence agencies among the scoops embedded here is news that. The. White House pressured the Director of National Intelligence to change and intelligence community conclusion that Russia wanted president trump reelected in two thousand, twenty, the intelligence director at the time Dan Coats said, no, he was then fired his successor signed off on the change, but he was then fired after one of his deputies briefed Congress that in fact, Russia is working to reelect president trump this year. Mr Draper I, thank you for this reporting for joining us here tonight to help us understand it. Thanks very much for your time. I've said a lot of words about the. Words that you have reported here and that you have printed. Let me just ask if I got anything wrong or if you think that I'm looking at anything the wrong way around. To actually think presences I did when issue two clarifications the I rooted in the most important is that I am not aware the Joe McGuire had anything to do with the alteration of the National Intelligence Estimate this all took place during his first couple of weeks on the job when his hands were very much full with Ukraine whistleblower incident as you correctly pointed at and so this really. Anthem it matter win the in I was approved on September the twenty six inch testifying on the hill all day long. So he wasn't able to cheer that meeting. So that's the first second thing is that You know they're a don't want the story to give anyone the impression that the intelligence community as a whole has been bent to the will of Donald Trump. There's still plenty of analysts in case officers who are doing very good work. The problem is that the people above them have been in the line of fire with the trump administration and had begun to water down such that the intelligence products do not have the integrity that they once did not mean saying black is why end up as down but they are saying things in a more equivocating fashion and we saw this most recently just out of this past Friday. On a no deny official release this election security report saying that for the first time did yes it did appear the Russia. Trump essentially the same breath saying that China in Iran. Favored Biden is if it were kind of a jump ball or something in that was working patient, you did not see before the trump presidency. I feel like I. Thank you for for those clarifications and for drilling down on those things in that way I feel like. When I read it, the beginning of your piece that Dan Coats was pressured to change the National Intelligence Estimate around Russia's intentions for the two thousand election and he said, no felt like, wow, that's that's really big news about Dan Coats to find out that that happened just before he was fired. Is itself a scoop. But then to find out that the National Intelligence Estimate. was in fact watered down in the way that the White House wanted under Joe McGuire. It it does seem like the sort of bending to the White House's will equivocating on things that aren't equivocal casting things in a way that doesn't you know is designed not to upset the president or put things in ways that he likes it does feel like it's not just pressure, but it's effective pressure that's actually working on the I say. Over sharing in. A. probably Rachel that the matter of. Russia in election security has been a sore subject since before trump's presidency and everyone knew I in the NFC in the West Wing and certainly in the intelligence community that to bring the very matter of Russia interfering in two thousand sixteen, it's likely interference patterns through the midterms and into twenty twenty an most of all that if they were trump would be to call into question the legitimacy of this presidency. That's how he would receive this and so because it was such an unpleasant thing as report out then chief definite Mulvaney and then national security advisor. John was a considerable lengths to to keep this completely off the agenda would get on the agenda for example, when it was a single in a seat meeting at relating to Russia in Election Security Pearson Nelson than the secretary of. Homeland Security didn't get five minutes into it before trump started interrupting her and asking questions about a wall along the Mexican border. So this has been a distasteful subject to him people around him have known that and they have adjusted themselves unfortunately accordingly.

"Impeachment watch a podcast dedicated to up to the minute reporting and analysis of the historic impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump today I'm but I I'm GonNa Chat with Evan Perez a colleague here he is CNN's senior justice correspondent. Welcome to the PODCAST. Evan thank you very much and so Evan in DC today in listen probably all around the country off Mick Mulvaney who of course is the acting White House chief of staff his word his press conference yesterday where he seemed to embrace the idea that yes there was a quid pro quo that is reverberating across this town what is did you make of it what does this mean in terms of what you think the White House's strategy is in terms of impeachment the most remarkable thing about it was that he out there to sort of test drive what is really their story this is story that the that that they're emerging which wishes that look it's okay for the president to ask for an investigation that looks back at two thousand sixteen if there was interference by a foreign government in two thousand sixteen election then it's okay for us to do that and demand that we're going to be giving aid to a country that has a history of corruption is totally okay to do that and sort of separate that from the idea of instigating Joe Biden and his son because then the idea of looking at a prospective twenty twenty rival of course would have an impact on the future election right they're trying to do had to separate that and if that's what he did then probably the White House would be happy instead what he did is he took this thing for a test drive five and ended up in a ditch because you know he ended up making a total mass of it essentially making it clear that this was a quid pro quote for an investigation and bringing in the Justice Department which of course then causes bigger problems White House you know if anything has an interest in separating itself from what is going on at the OJ which by the way is looking back at twenty sixteen and is doing a review of how that began and so that's one of the things that happened yesterday he did so much damage not only to the president to their brand new shiny excuse for what was happening yeah but also to the justice in yeah he tried to essentially legitimate the quid pro quo by invoking the Justice Department investigation which of course we know that William Bar is kind of going all over the world in trying to uncover the roots of the Russia investigation and I sort of put that in quotes because we you know what the roots of the Russia investigation are but here was Mick Mulvaney yesterday I was I was involved with the the process by which the money was held up temporarily three issues for that the corruption in the country whether or not other countries were participating the support of Ukraine and whether or not they were cooperating in and on going investigation with our department of Justice that's completely legitimate and of course the DOJ a responded being like what are you talking about there was a Wti in the halls 'cause I was over there and it certainly was something that they reacted very sharply very usually by the way for the Justice Department to come out and publicly distance themselves from the from the White House it's just not done in this administration very much and so they basically they said if there was any any exchange any any link between withholding the aid to Ukraine and the Justice Department investigation being done by John them then it was news to them and I and you can see why right the the Attorney General Bill as you as you mentioned has been leading this investigation he has some nations he believes that it's possible that there's some people who did things incorrectly and acted inappropriately he it the beginnings of this investigation of the two thousand sixteen Russia investigation what what he's been doing he's been traveling around the world essentially with John Durham his prosecutor Tokyo trying to gather some of this information this is something obviously the White House is very happy about the president is applauding it from the sidelines what this Mulvaney did essentially was jump in and try to get into the car with with with with with bill bar bill bar kind of kicked him out immediately yeah in at least in New York I'll say this the Justice Department win this call came out the train script this call essentially said there was no problem with that call how does that fit into what's going on now in terms of their clearly looking into or the folks in New York Prosecutors New Yorker clearly looking into Guiliani clearly looking into Ukraine as well right that was one of the things that emerged anyone after the release of that transcript the Justice Department officials tried to say there is no campaign finance violation by the president and nothing to see here case closed it turns out prosecutors in New York have other ideas and so it's not a close matter it's clear that they are closely scrutinizing an investigating Rudy Giuliani and and the political implications of that are tremendous. We're talking about someone who is very close to the president and Giuliani's own defense which is to hug the president ever more tightly and say everything I was doing I was doing at the behest and after the president it makes it a lot tougher for the president to divorce himself from this in the future if you know a lot of people lawyers say it would be smart for the president to say to separate himself from Rudy and say look you know I wanted him to look into stuff but I don't know what else he was doing but that's not what's happening right now and that's I think that's a fascinating Facet of this of this entire drama going on because you know the Democrats want to impeach the president for wrongdoing certainly Rhody Giuliani's problems become the president's problems ever more readily apparent now that this is going on in are seem to be a moment when the president may have been thinking about distancing himself I'm Rudy Giuliani he was like I'm not really sure if he's my personal lawyer and then in the days after that he essentially said he's a great gentleman he was tastic mayor of New York and now obviously some of Giuliani's we've seen we've seen before right Michael Cohen during the during the Mike Cohen and we also saw during the investigation when Rudy kept causing issues with some of his TV appearances the president got angry and and asked him to to to chill out and stop doing them for a while and then of course he came back and and and has caused new problems for the president he I mean really Angel Yanni chilling out it just seems to not be possible given his penchant for wanting to be in front of a camera and in some ways he's very similar to this president in some ways he feels like he can talk his way out of things in in the meantime he talks his way into a lot of trouble oftentimes in the president in all is well right normalizing things that everybody's outraged about and and say yes so what and in that way they believe that that is a normalization strategy that has worked with them ever going back to the stormy Daniels stuff the grabbed him by the you know what you know issues all of those things you know they simply normalized as a way to get out of it and it's worked in the past we'll see whether it works now yeah which is what Mick Mulvaney was maybe trying to do yesterday right Giuliani all right evan we're going to hold it right there and we're going to bring in Daniel Dale in just a moment but first this quick.

Great to see. It is good to be here is going to see you good to see you. So what is the difference? In the Trump White House from chief of staff and acting chief of staff, none as I tell people short of Mike Pence everybody else in the administration is just acting because the president can remove you at any time for any reason. So it doesn't really make a difference. Now for some folks. I mean face it. He had some cabinet, folks. He didn't like and there's been some White House personnel turnover as well. Yeah. Now, not much not not since I've been there. In fact, I've actually had a couple people come to me right after I took over in December and said they were leaving.

"Because I came up the other day in the in the private meeting with with with the big eight as they call the leaders in the house, and the Senate Republicans Democrats was that he was willing to agree. And he mentioned this at the rose garden press conference to take a concrete wall off the table that that that is that if that is not evidence of our willingness to to to to solve the problem. Okay. Because again, what's driving? This is the president's desire to change the conditions at the border, and if he has to give up a concrete wall replace it with a steel fence in order to do that. So that Democrats can say see he's not building a wall anymore that should help us. The president no longer wants a wall that he wants a fence the president is going to secure the border with a barrier. We say it that way. Comfortable saying, no, not gonna have the wall. And by the way, Mexico's never painting. I think he said yesterday it was going to be a thirty foot high still he actually tweeted a picture out of it two weeks ago, we told the Democrats this week. So this is what we want to build. Do you think this is a wall actually under the way the law is written right now, technically, it's not a wall? But if that's not evidence of the president's desire to try and resolve I don't know what is moving. I think we ran over time. The current chief of staff you have given up your title. Let us know when you do it has always a pleasure. And joining me now is the house majority leader democratic congressman Steny Hoyer of Maryland, congressman or meet the press earth healing to be with you. All right. Let me start with that last. Mick Mulvaney, said just now you heard him the president is taking concrete wall off the table. If that's not if that's not evidence that he was trying to compromise. Then he'd know. What is do you take that as a as a good faith offer? It is an offer he made an it'll be discussed. But the fact of the matter is you used Mick Mulvaney is quote, but you've got Senator John Cornyn who says I don't think we're just going to be able to solve border security with a physical Barry because people can come under around it and threw it Lindsey Graham said the porta wall is probably not a smart investment. Mike McCall, the chairman of the homeland security committee in the last Angra said you have to understand too that a thirty foot concrete wall is a very expensive proposition. And there are a lot of other things we can do be doing technology wise to make it a smart border. That's more effective and more cost efficient. So this is not a democratic position. This is a pretty broad position that this does not make sense what we ought to do is open up the government. I and that's what we're gonna do. We pass legislation last Thursday that. Would open up the government. I would hope that Senator McConnell would take the responsibility as the leader of the Coequal branch of government the legislative branch and send this to the present. That would open up government which start serving the American people. Do you regret not taking the deal that vice president Pence offer the ask for two point five billion? And maybe you could have said here's more money for border security, you guys call it border security, and all this, and you would have reopened the government will look we were ready to take the deal that the vice-president offered and Senator McConnell took that offer. He passed a Bill or I'm talking about. He didn't earn steno. Senator McConnell did pass that Bill in the last congress. He sent us a Bill and the Republicans in the house of resumes rejected the Senate bills the Republican bills. And when you say have we compromise we have voted for and are prepared to vote for Republican bills. These are all the Republican bills from the last congress. And as a matter of fact, Chuck as you know, we're going to make every effort to open up government next week. We're gonna offer. Bills to open.

"And a long time at least not this level so we had jurisdiction over some of the claims the occ had some over others and just we just decided to do together yeah but the premise of the question sir is that the pb under under mick mulvaney has in your own words not been extremely active oh i'm sorry i'm sorry i thought you meant the legal structure no that's that's that's that's actually not true all i said that is that i wasn't going to push the envelope we weren't going to try and be overly creative and go after folks who might not be breaking the law i think anybody who would look at the facts including those that were admitted by wells catania that they broke the law so no i've said for the very beginning we were going to enforce the law that's exactly what we've done today about how you're running the place you said to the house financial services committee the other day you said listen i haven't burned the place down we're just doing a new way of regulating what does that mean what does that look like well there's a lot of discretion in regulations regulations are a lot of times very very great mind congress's pretty sloppy i say that having formerly been in in congress sort of paint the big picture with a big brush but don't get down into the details and they leave that to the to the administration to the executive branch and there's a lot of discretion down at that level and i'm going to exercise mind differently than my predecessor would have that means i think i dismissed one lawsuit out of twenty six that we might not bring as many lawsuits as he did but that doesn't mean we're not enforcing the law i'm a bureaucrat now and that means that my job is to enforce the law and i'm gonna do statute tells me to do but i'm not gonna go beyond that and that's the biggest difference between the previous leadership of the bureau but you've delayed enforcement of some rules you've dropped lawsuits against payday lenders you've you've stripped out some protections of fair lending provisions i guess the question re large is actually i if i.

"Yes i'll follow up with that i think it's an outrageous decision mold vini didn't say during this hearing why he wanted to drop the lawsuit against golden valley but we tried to get into his head a little bit here and we think it shows what he means by this mantra that the agency should exercise more humility and moderation yet mulvaney said over and over again that he thinks the cfpb has in the past pushed the envelope is what he says going right up to the edge of its mandate with congress being as aggressive as possible somebody's being too aggressive and when mulvaney was talking about his priorities for the cfp said well you know look at the list of complaints that we get here just a small fraction of the complaints are about you know payday lenders or high interest loan so maybe those should be a small part of our enforcement right so that's maybe what mulvaney is thinking but some consumer advocates say there might be something else going onto this is clear evidence that mick mulvaney is a payday industry puppet carl fresh is with the consumer group allied progress and he says if you look back over the last decade you know as a congressman he took sixty two thousand dollars plus from the payday lenders and now at the he's doing their bidding of course as much as we would like to be inside mick mulvaney head we are not and we asked him several times for interviews he's said no every time so we don't really know the motivation behind this but we do know that as of today golden valley is free to keep giving out money their websites still up and after many weeks of calls we did manage to get someone from the tribe to speak with us coming up after the break support for this npr podcast and the following message come from state farm helping americans who struggle with their finances by giving them the tools help and education they need to take control of their money find out more at letsstarttoday dot com state farm here to help life go right when cece wong met his mom's new tenant he never suspected he ended up getting replaced as a son or that his replacement.

"Yeah and the cfp had a theory about this they knew that online lenders sometimes incorporate on indian reservations and then claim that they're not subject to state laws so even state says you can't charge high interest rates a native american owned company can claim hate that does not apply to us we have tribal sovereignty but in the lawsuit the cfpb says look not really we're not buying that golden valley is clearly acting is a national lender even if they have an address and a casino in this remote area of upper lake california this was where the case stood when mick mulvaney was named director of the pb the republican who did not believe that the agency should even exist was now heading that agency and one of his first acts is to send this memo to the entire staff it says hey everybody we are going to do things a lot slower around here so slow in fact that some things were doing we're no longer gonna be doing at all and quietly and mysteriously around the same time this golden valley lawsuit gets dropped he was a lawsuit that had been years in the making it gets the company accused of fleecing perhaps thousands of people and all of a sudden this lawsuit is abandoned yet at the time it seemed a little strange because it didn't get a lot of attention but i started to hear from people inside the cf pb and they were puzzled because this case seemed like a slam dunk and it was like why all of a sudden is golden valley being let off the hook and you call people inside of government agency they're not supposed to talk so i found this guy christopher peterson he's a former lawyer at the cfpb he's now law professor and asked him so what what's your take on this lawsuit getting drops these federal investigation.
