Declassified Susan Rice email shows Obama team discussed Russian dealings
"Well on the occasion last week of the first tranche of the classifications by acting deny Richard Grinnell that provided some detail on all of the unmasking requests that were made by all of the various Obama administration personnel as it pertains to Michael Flynn and perhaps others Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley the two centers in Wisconsin and Iowa respectively want more details more a documents declassified because they have more concern that perhaps the surveillance that was being conducted by Obama administration officials predates operation crossfire hurricane on that occasion last week John Brennan former CIA director took to his safe space and M. S. N. B. C. and had this reaction this is also going out and saying give me everything about Michael Flynn absolutely not and quite interestingly the number of reports so we're in December sixteen and January seventeen that were declassified by Richard Grinnell I was surprised at how many dates and reports that were there then what was the ground should do is to declassify and release the contents of those reports in terms of what's the individuals were involved with but what he's doing now is just releasing the names of individuals who again were carrying out their authorized responsibilities shin director Brennan he's getting there yesterday to classifying a email from Susan rice that seems to run counter to things Susan rice was saying in public from a national security perspective president Obama said he wants to be sure that as we engage with the incoming team are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia rice wrote call me said he does have some concerns that incoming NSA Flanaess speaking frequently with Russian ambassador Kislyak Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information president Obama asked of Comey was saying the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to flan Comey replied potentially adding that there's no indication thus far that Flynn has passed classified information to kids they act but he noted the level of communication is unusual potentially we should not pass sense of information to the incoming president incoming national security adviser is that properly or or fairly Radisson body trying to insinuate his way into a counterintelligence operation against general Flynn well that's what Susan rice memorialized in an email here's Susan rice back on March twenty second of twenty seventeen just a couple months into the trump administration in a sit down on PBS with Judy Woodruff what she had to say about what she knew do you know anything about this I know nothing about this I was surprised to see reports from chairman Nunes on that count today fresh off her performance in the Benghazi a misdirection cover up however you want to describe it we get this from Susan rice I really don't know what to what chairman Nunez was referring but he said that whatever he was referring to was a legal lawful surveillance and that it was potentially incidental collection on American citizens and I think it's important for people to understand what incidental means that means that the target was a either a foreign entity D. or somebody under criminal investigation and that the Americans who were talking to those targets may have been picked up well Devin newness has since revised and extended his remarks so perhaps is in rice would like to do the same for more on this we're pleased to be joined by Fred flights he's a former CIA analyst now president CEO at center for security policy former Deputy Assistant to the president into the chief of staff of the National Security Council thanks for joining us again forget it good to be here about what Susan rice said in twenty seventeen verses what Susan rice memorialized about this January fifth twenty seventeen meeting well wishers lined clearly she knew that there was electronic surveillance of general Flynn what this comes down to what is the intention of B. bomber stretching from the top from president Obama not to honor the very important principle of our democracy and that's called the peaceful transfer of power under that principle the outgoing administration cooperates fully with the incumbent won eight daughters the the will of the people turned over the keys to the officers tells all about farm policy mission underway gives them all the intelligence operations and intelligence they collected they don't withhold information from the incoming president and Tucker offices to use this information to investigate the next administration to undermine it it's really very serious violation of our whole system of government if they had concerns about general Flynn they had to tell the next administration about it cook told president trump and vice president pence and call me if needed later said he was held information twelve Attorney General sessions about Russia also this is an effort by an outgoing administration to undermine and destroy any incoming

Trump defends decision to shutter NSC pandemic office
"President trump staged a pageant in the Rose Garden and apparently successful attempt to pump up the stock market while he also lied about where things stand. Nancy Pelosi House Speaker hammered out a deal with treasury secretary. Steve mnuchin on a corona virus aid package that includes among other things free testing and paid. Emergency leave this afternoon. The president paraded out to inform. Americans takes no responsibility for the manifest documented repeated failures in the federal government. Slow response to deal with and prepare for the worst global pandemic in probably one hundred years Dr Fouled. She said earlier this week that the lag intesting was in fact a failing. Do you take responsibility for that. No I don't take responsibility at all because we were given a a a set of circumstances and we were given rules regulations and specifications from a different time. You said that you don't take responsibility. But you did disband. The White House pandemic office and officials that were working in that office left this administration abruptly. So what responsibility do you take to that? And the officials that worked in that office said that you that the White House lost valuable time because that office was disbanded. What do you make of that? Well I just think it's a nasty question because what we've done is And Tony had said numerous times that we've saved thousands of lives because of the quick closing. And when you say me I didn't do it point of fact he did do it. His White House did it. Trump also to set of probably necessary measures to cut regulatory obstacles to get up to capacity but as of today the. Us still has only eighteen. Thousand people total. Now that's quite a bit up almost doubled from where we were last night but we are still way way way behind almost every other comparable nation that regard

Trump fires key impeachment witnesses Sondland, Lt. Col. Vindman in purge
"Yesterday security officers escorted lieutenant colonel Alexander women out of the White House his twin brother also won the national security staff was escorted out at the same time and then it was turned for Gordon Sunland no escort for him though ambassador Sunland issued a statement thanking the president for the opportunity to serve as US ambassador to the European Union both in minutes Tomlin provided damaging testimony about the president's pressure campaign on Ukraine last fall during the house impeachment enquiring and after their dismissals many people wonder who might be next we're joined now by amperes Whitehouse correspondent Franco Oregonians Franco thanks so much for being with us thank you remind us about the testimony how damaging well women oversaw American policy toward Ukraine on the National Security Council he actually listened in on president trump's July twenty fifth call with Ukraine president Vladimir is a Lansky he testified that he had no doubt that trump was demanding that Ukraine investigate former vice president Joe Biden in return for an oval office visit he also said that relations between the United States and Ukraine were damaged as a result and he struck quite a figure on television testifying being there in his dress uniform you know I do want to note that both then man and his brother were moved back to the army and ambassador some well son one was one of the quote three Amigos who worked with Rudy Giuliani the president's lawyer on Ukraine policy they worked outside the normal foreign policy channels was there a quid pro quo as I testified previously with regard to the requested White House call in the White House meeting the answer is yes he famously also said that everyone was in the loop but his comments were also used by Republicans to defend trump Sunland said at one point that trump told him that he wanted nothing from Ukraine and no quid pro quo Franco is is retaliation or the president making as is his right personnel changes well you know we saw president trump celebrating his acquittal this week he was clearly angry and even spoke about van man and his brother with disdain you know his press secretary Stephanie Grisham said people should be held accountable for doing things that hurt this country and the president I asked John Gans about this he wrote a book on the NSC called White House warriors he said it's clear trump knew people were watching had he done this last week it could have been held against him but now feels unleashed by the acquittal in one of these three people gone service was repressed so that is something that they all knew going into these jobs but it is still shocking to see sort of personal animus of personal retribution plaque out and the peers to be with these three public servants it's not a surprise that democratic leaders like house speaker Nancy Pelosi and senator Chuck Schumer our outrage they are calling this shameful and they're calling trump weak and Frank are there are other career civil servants who testified in the inquire re do they still have their jobs well there have been a flood of people who have already left they include US ambassadors who worked in Ukraine such as Maria von of H. and William Taylor but there are still seven career officials who are still in their jobs my colleagues and I we reached out to their attorneys last night and to this moment there are no changes to report

"I got to be that show what is in June at June nine June nine hello my man's got well we got a question for John Roberts if you're interested and is the home to turn it over read the back of it boarding described to NSC staff hold over from the Obama administration attending an all hands meeting of NSC staff held about two weeks into the trump administration and talking loudly enough to be over heard saying we need to do everything we can to take out the president Hey is rampant July twenty six twenty nineteen the house intelligence committee hired one of those individuals Sean Misako port further describes relationships between miss go lieutenant colonel vin men and an individual alleged as the wistful whistle blower why did your committee hired Sean miss go the day after the phone call between president trump and Zelinsky and what role has he played throughout your committee's investigation here we go god the question in there they go so here comes a is this shiftless first of all there's been a lot of attacks on my staff and a as I said when this issue came up earlier I'm appalled at some of the smearing of the professional people that work for the intelligence committee now this question refers to allegations of newspaper article which are circulating smears on my staff and asked me to respond to those smears and I will not dignify those errors on my staff by giving them any credence whatsoever you go nor will I share any information that I believe could or could not lead to the identification of the whistleblower yeah I want to be very clear about something your immediate members of this body used to care about the protection of whistleblower identities and they didn't used to gratuitously attack members of committee staff but now they do now now they do all now they'll take an unsubstantiated repress article and use it to smear my staff I think that's disgraceful I think it's disgraceful you know what's the blowers are a unique and vital resource for the intelligence community and why because unlike other whistleblowers who can go public with their information whistle blowers in the intelligence community cannot because it deals with classified information they must come to a committee they must talk to the staff that committee or to the inspector general that is what they're supposed to do our system relies upon it and when you jeopardize a whistle blower by trying to help them this way then you are threatening not just this was a blow but the entire system the present would like that nothing better than that and I'm sure the president is applauding this question because he wants his pound of flesh and he wants to punish anyone that that has the courage to stand up to him well I can't tell you who was the blowers because I don't know but I can tell you the possible should be it should be every one of us every one of us should be willing to blow the whistle on presidential misconduct if it weren't for this whistleblower we wouldn't know about this conduct misconduct that might be just as well for this president but it would not be good for this country and I worry that future people that see wrongdoing are going to watch how this person has been treated the threats against this person's life and they're going to say why I stick my neck out is my name going to be dragged through the mud will people join our staff if they know that their names are going to be dragged through the mud thank you Mister manager yeah and now here we go live German Jay Sekulow lays Velma sent this two responses are I'd like to get to one with regard to the issue of witnesses in this case the whistle blower Mr Shipp put the whistle blower issue front and center with his own words during the course of their investigation he talked about the whistle blower testifying retribution is what is prohibited under the statute against what was a lot of that's what what's were whistleblower statute protects there's no retribution in other words it not be fired for blowing the whistle but this idea that there's complete anonymity and I'm not saying to which disclose the individual's name and you have you handle that an executive session or anywhere you want but we can't just say it's not a relevant inquiry to know who on the staff that conducted the primary investigation here was in communication with that was a blower especially after Mr Shipp denied that his the here is definition we had even had any conversations with the whistle blower it goes back to the whole witness issue and I want to go to that for just a thirty seconds here it seems to me that the discussion for witnesses I heard Mr Shipp said about the thirty I will do depositions in a week the democratic leaders said I could have any witnesses I want yesterday about it in the transcript and you can get all the witnesses you'd want in a week you can get the discovery done in a week but if in fact if in fact they believe that they presented this overwhelming case that they have all the big talk about subterfuge and smoke screens the smoke screen here is that they used thirteen other seventeen witnesses to try to prove their case and we were able to use those very witnesses to undercut that case so I think we just have to keep that in perspective I think Mister Chief Justice thank you counsel I think they're going for okay all right he's not going to go any further as far as the whistle blowers concern I guess they're scared to push that too much but you didn't answer the question nobody answered the question well here comes another question let's see if this was any better question from the house met for the house managers from senator Murray if there are no consequences to openly defying a valid congressional subpoena how will Congress be able to perform its constitutional oversight responsibility to make sure any administration is following the law an act okay cast Ellen this is look the question was you have this me goes guy running and he's in cahoots with Veneman and Eric Jeremiah now we know Vinland is the whistle blower when they say the whistle blower it's well Eric's the one who filed the complaint but you can't blow a whistle unless you're seeing what's going on so we know very well it's colonel Veneman colonel Veneman in cahoots with Eric chair a mellow blows the whistle on this thing because you're trying to stop it because they got interest in Ukraine you say they don't want to and then they're gonna they're gonna go there they go digging into this stuff to get on cover all sorts of stuff so we got to impeach this president well this this other guy mako some believe is his name rand Paul was mentioning him today matter of fact I don't want to misquote him so here's what rand Paul says and this was the question yesterday and this is pretty much the question they were asking so they would they even went a little bit further which was just stunning to me so they must've gotten some strings that someone's gonna be at this we got **** question and he said so rand Paul's earlier exact question the guy shot down by the chief was are you aware the house intelligence committee staffers Sean miss go is is name had a close relationship with Eric Jeremiah while at the National Security Council so what they've now into this colonel Vivement Veneman in this little love triangle so we got Veneman Sean miss go and Eric sure a melon so here Chillin mellow mellow we know is the guy who went to Adam shifts staff well guess one they do that was working with them but was Sean miss go and they had a close relationship they were working on this before so what what the rand Paul's point is is this was a conspiracy of sorts you have aired sure Mel of these the whistle blower who had a way of close relationship with Sean miss go who is Adam Schiff staffer on the house intelligence committee and they were plotting this whole thing so that they could impeach the president long before there was an impeachment enquiring else and so they had set this thing I it was a set up is what he's saying and this question and I didn't catch at the beginning who was asking the question it may have been right may maybe level at rand Paul ask this question but it looks like colonel then when we looks like we've known that he and share a mellow work this is weird chairman will get his information so the way things look like they're playing out now is colonel then was on the phone he was on the phone call he gets on the horn or meets with Eric Shera Mellon who used to be a colleague of his and the the National Security Council I believe in them had been moved and so he says you need to tell somebody they get on this right now I mean this there by the blow our whole thing out of the water so you wonder why this guy Veneman is so defensive about the Ukraine thing and everything I think we're gonna start peeling back that the layer that and you will find that out too these guys are up to no good and what they were trying to do was overthrow the presidency and a silent coup from within and that's what these questions are all about but neither side answered them which was really stunning to me the gel secolo pundit I mean Jay Sekulow pundit why would Sekolah pun on this you've got your chance now maybe he's saying well it's not our place to say so because this is directed to make Adam Schiff embarrassed and Adam should and it works go then I'm not going to dignify bullies so maybe Sekulow said they're going you know I don't wanna get been speculate as the other side because we don't know his relationship with this result but now it's out there right so now the mainstream media if they are doing their job are going to have to ask who Sean miss go what's his relationship with Eric Scherer mela let's drop this pretense that nobody knows who the whistle blower is we all know who we is let's get these folks and talk to him and find out what was going on where they plotting months before this thing ever went to the house intelligence committee is this how it went because he the protocol here with the long is whistle blowers supposed to go to the inspector general of his department if he's got a complaint whatever chair mellow was apparently doing was going to Sean miss go who was a staffer on Adam ships committee so they completely bypassed the system and went straight for impeachment which really does destroy your credibility as whistle blower if you're concerned about some law that's been broken then you go to the inspector general and you say Hey I think there's a law that's been broken but if you're trying to impeach the president you go straight to the committee they can do it and that's what they're Jeremy Allen did and then when was obviously involved in this as well interesting developments this afternoon will be back after this.

The New York Times you go to jail just like the for them ever the sub mariner on his name escapes me for the moment took a photograph on the submarine have a nuclear reactor in the background accidentally got paid in a selfie shot and published it and he went to jail it had to be pardoned by president trump then so what we should have done he should have taken a rag you should be taking a rag he should have wiped of that of that picture of the nuclear there was or has never did words or Clinton present declaring it game over now yeah after the.

Bolton Was Concerned That Trump Did Favors for Autocratic Leaders, Book Says
"To questions you surprise that a investor Bolton was writing a book about his time in the trump administration and beat it was ready to go while the president was still in office I wasn't surprised that a basketball was writing a book on his experiences working for president trump we had a very interesting take here thank you very productive as national security adviser I was surprised that he was planning on a show in the book before the twenty twenty presidential election and as you know I wrote about that that was published in function pinning yesterday that said there's a there's a principle that former secretary of defense Bob gates established he resigned in twenty eleven but he didn't put his book out so early twenty fourteen because he didn't want his knowledge of the above the stretch to affect the outcome twenty twenty twenty twelve presidential election I think that the president of basketball just follow are you what about the leak here I mean do you I know you've reference and you think of John Bolton as a man of integrity but do you believe that he would leak this center underhanded way or facilitate a week of this nature out now he would he would never do that and I I think that he this team may have made an error in sending a a Agnes growth this sensitive to leak hello National Security Council in the middle of the teacher process he came out yesterday that the NSC made multiple paper copies that were circulating around the building I'm afraid there was simply probably too much of a temptation by someone in the NSC two two weeks this to the media I I I don't think we should have a search right at all this election but if it had to be circulated should that circulated the clearance during the impeachment process yeah I saw with Alexander Veneman's brother is supposedly responsible for some of these affix reviews which is seems like a conflict of interest to begin with but why is the National Security Council such a disaster why is it known as being weak problem well I I work with you getting than than what I was at the end I see I I thought he was a very fine attorney and I don't like people trying it for around the allegation he may have leaked this there's no evidence of that aha the NSC is part of a process prior for pre publication review publications like this when you go to the S. you make an agreement that that we got it was sent to the embassy for security clearance but it seems to me that rules are sure to follow to make sure this is handled very carefully were not followed and that's probably where we came from has the New York times seen the manuscript have they read the manuscript or is what date published based on a source that's a good point The New York Times ran a story based on anonymous sources without seeing the manuscript so could be that all the allegations of what Paul supposedly said the book of the New York times are not exactly accurate yeah yeah I mean this is more than secondhand information and so I think there there is a real problem here this has happened before when it is our cases like this is something a conservative said in the end up being not true are greatly exaggerated you give would not be the first time that the New York Times has published something based on an anonymous source and then had to go back and retract it because they were wrong and I think this is very dangerous this is a very dangerous precedent that we're going we're going to bring information into an impeachment trial based on court in court and anonymous source that leaked to The New York Times it's a seems to be I don't know little a little crazy and I I don't like that the Republicans are even giving any credence to this making giving any credibility to this anonymous source I think it's very dangerous to great I I I think that's right it seems like there's a different standard of proof for stories that her conservatives and stories that hurt levels the grade if this was a story against a democratic president I doubt that their ties with the land that they would have demanded to see the manuscript and confirm these allegations can I ask I sing some reporting this morning in The Washington Post that Bolton is believed according to some anonymous official too often go home at night and write extensively about his experience during the day with the president and the president had expressed concern about his copious note taking including during meetings as well what was your experiencing experience with that well how did our resources noticeably falling home followed him home and watching them right I we're what we're is that come from like he's a smart guy with an incredible memory I I I I I saw that allegation of those Sir givers and then on this issue of there's a New York times report also out loud overnight last night indicating that John Bolton had privately told bill bar that he had concerns that trump was granting personal favors to the autocratic leaders of Turkey and China these are the newest allegations added this manuscript that John Bolton thought that he was doing something on toward a concern about that is that your experience as well my experience is well I I find that the highly unlikely thing to have happened at eight eight eight it looks like there may have been some policy difference between the president and the basketball but I think they had a falling out that's why you left the White House yes that particular allegation I I I find unlikely that that's true additionally at this idea that their policy differences deed is that do you think that's animating the activities of John Bolton at this moment I'm sorry it's their policy differences you you pointed out that they have well established policy differences including over things like Afghanistan and negotiating with the Taliban things like this do you think that's animating John Paul's behavior now I think there were a number of differences that outlook there's going to be times when the presidential adviser has a falling out with the president where they're just not getting along the had major differences of opinion and when that happens is appropriate and and typical for the the advise you to move on yeah you know a basketball has written a book I think use right now principal I'm just calling for him to respect it I think a fairly well established principle that a senior adviser to president should hold off put memoirs like this while president is in office were least hold off until after the next presidential election absolutely Fred flights thank you so much for joining us really appreciate your time and your insight
White House impeachment team weighs in on Bolton claims
"In the house impeachment inquiry was beginning the White House claimed it wasn't fair and White House attorney said they would not be cooperating with the impeachment process house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler had said if the president's team wouldn't participate they couldn't claim the process was unfair then things stop house speaker Nancy Pelosi was holding the articles of impeachment saying the house was waiting to hear about the rules of the Senate trial president trump said let's move this along this is Renee a total sham from the beginning everybody knows it I've never seen in the Republican Party so United we got our last about as you know we got a hundred percent of the vote I believe the Senate is equally as well United now the Senate trial has begun discussions over what is fair still loom Republicans say an offer to let the president's team participating committee presentations of evidence came too late Democrats and the White House is blocking documents in preventing key witnesses from testifying Monday the president tweeted that the house never even asked former national security adviser John Bolton to testify but they didn't they didn't issue a subpoena like they did the Boltons aids trials government government filed a lawsuit to force the question should I listen to the president stay quiet or complied with the subpoena the judge dismissed the suit though when the house withdrew the request and moved forward with formal articles of impeachment so the question has been answered Bolton has since said he would testify in the Senate trial if the peanut Democrats do want to call more witnesses before the Senate Republicans say they should have done that during the house inquiry now though Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer notes there's new information Mister Bolton's book is further evidence that a large number of people for a quote in the loop on this scheme and now they are all covering up part of Bolton's book many script leaked over the weekend after it had been sent to the National Security Council for classified information vetting he says the president quote wanted to continue freezing security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the bidens I'm sorry about the timing AT standard is an associate editor and columnist at real clear politics because everyone was assuming we're speeding toward a conclusion here of the trial at the end of this week without witnesses but in terms of how long it is that the manuscript has been at the administration whether GM but the National Security Council or both and we know or dare and also distributed to a wider circle of top political people as has been the case with books like this in the past was it always the case that Bolton sort of you know hovered over this defense from the president's team and threaten to weaken it yes it was always the case that we knew he had information the investigation and the impeachment in the house had not yet revealed and it was likely to run counter to what the president's lawyers for saying schools in the tourney said that this clearly is a corruption of the NSC review process and Democrats say you know this surely should serve more as a catalyst to to actually hear from witnesses specifically Bolton when you look at sort of the the broad strokes in the big picture of what everyone saying regardless of any motivation does its way things doesn't change anything well it is a first hand hand the cal and in a way that contradicts the the defense that began over the weekend of of the of the president where lawyers came out on Saturday and said there is no evidence anywhere that this was a a quid pro quo on and that the president intended it to be that withholding of security eight so I think the senators on the Republican side are angry not because they think the John Bolton was squarely in the release of his timing and you know perhaps it's connected to his creed overbooked fails but that the White House might have known since December thirtieth that this is an incredibly damaging development and would poke holes in their defense and would make the argument for witnesses had this information been known earlier I I actually saw some defense from some Republican senators of John Bolton many of them are very close to him they believe his truth teller and that he wouldn't be lying in this book do you foresee a court fight I mean I know the court site really only happens if four Republican senators say yes to witnesses so we have to get there first we think that's gonna happen if John Bolton isn't just going to go on sixty minutes or something I mean I I just don't know just on anyways right he's decided in the eleventh hour that his reputation could be tarnished by the fact that he was holding out but now they're rushing the book to publication and body wants to be a patriot and he didn't wanna look redeem he's clearly conflicted so I don't know what exactly his line of thinking as but he has made it clear to us all along he intends to tell us something that we don't yet know and so if he foresees a court battle does he go into an open media setting I know that nothing can stop the house from trying to subpoena him and he could say yes to a subpoena I don't know but the Senate trial if that's gonna get gummed up this building just sit down in interview that that's I think a big alone looming question here now that he has that publication date since Fulton's many scriptures leak Republican senators who previously expressed interest in possibly hearing from witnesses have said this does strengthen the argument Utah senator Mitt Romney said he thinks it is increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of them who think they should hear from John Bolton Maine senator Susan Collins said the reporting on Fulton strengthens the case for witnesses it would take a least for Republicans joining Democrats in order for witnesses to be called so wise and Berg is former deputy independent counsel in the whitewater investigation it authorizes the calling of witnesses I would have to believe that Bolton would be one of them the real question is what happens after that do the president's lawyers make a motion in the trial to exclude the testimony under executive privilege and if they do what happened to that one I think most of us are curious about the reach of executive privilege and a lot of articles have been written over the weekend like trying to expound on what seems like untested waters to a certain degree we we don't really know how far executive privilege will will apply do we certainly not in the context of impeachment I don't believe there's any precedent certainly not in the federal appellate precedent gusting executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or an impeachment trial I should say so we're really operating without without a guide book I will say that if you look at history and particularly the accounting period and the and the first few administrations and congresses after the founding period there is some historical support for the notion that it might not executive privilege might not apply at all in the context of an impeachment trial the first is the very first time a president withheld information didn't called executive privilege then but the very first time I believe that a president withheld information from Congress was when I was in a Washington with held certain papers related to the negotiations of the Jay treaty which was very unpopular and he was asked for old papers and he gave the great majority of them but he did not give over certain papers that he felt were too sensitive and he said at the time this would be different if if we were talking about an impeachment inquiry so I think there is certainly a credible argument that executive privilege either would not apply or would be the standards would be much more difficult for successfully invoking executive privilege in the context of an impeachment inquiry or trial school in your legal mind how does not proceed does it depend on if you have a cooperating witness first is not of just how does the justice department pursue a case against somebody who says you know I'm I'm going to ignore your your invocation of executive privilege and I'm going to go ahead and testify or does it work in the reverse if you say to Congress no I'm going to resist your subpoena who's sort of the authority that that will make that determination ambassador Bolton has already said that if subpoenaed he will testify so I think how it would proceed would be the president's lawyers in the impeachment trial if that happened the boat Mississippi that need to testify will make a motion to the she just this thing the president invokes executive privilege and we we do not agree that this man to justice robbers can do one of two things he can make that determination himself number one do even apply a secular privilege here number two if I'm going to apply it how do we waive the interests of the president versus the interest of the Senate and conducting an impeachment trial now this is David keep justice Roberts says I'm gonna let you invoke executive privilege that would be the easiest for the the majority I think in the Senate because they would have to overturn him by majority vote to overrule but let's say the rules you know what executive privilege simply doesn't apply here it's not very strong here and by the way we do I think the president's already waived whatever in is an interesting situation because we can certainly be overruled but I think we have to think about what you're gonna look like at the two cases in the United States has ruled that Fulton have testified even in the face of an invocation of executive privilege by the president but we're gonna overrule the Chief Justice is what you're saying hold truth the reverse occurs in other words if somebody is resistant unlike Bolton to appearing maybe Samick Mulvaney or a secretary Pompeii or somebody like that and Congress you know the senators say you know excuse me you can't ignore our subpoena is due to the senators then take this to court or petition justice Roberts in much the same way that you you save what happens if the White House felt they were trying to get something through well that would certainly let's say the the the Senate subpoenas and Mulvaney to go into court he could he could make his argument first in front of the net at sitting as a court either thing could happen I don't think it would be bold enough to reassert this the notion of absolute immunity again because it is it is the

S. domestic political narrative that overshadows that so I your right to point that out and I apologize for the mistake I want to go back to working again now from staff on the democratic side he's taking fifty one minute and then it appears so will the Republican July twenty fifth call yes I received a read out the from both Ukrainian colleague under yeah mock as well as from a U. S. person I don't now remember whether was my staff or someone from the embassy or where and the read out was that it was a good phone call and that it was a congratulatory phone call for the presence when in the parliamentary election that presents Lynskey did reiterate his commitment to fighting corruption in advance reform in Ukraine and the president trump renewed his invitation for presents let's get to come to the White House and I believe you said that that that read out was exactly as you expected the call to go is that right that's what we were trying to DO okay I just want to show you once again the July twenty fifth tax that you wrote to Andre year mock which was the message that you were relating to him so that he could prepare presidents a Lansky and you'll recall this right where you said the that this was the message good lunch thanks heard from White House assuming president Z. convinces Trumpy will investigate quote get to the bottom of what happened in twenty sixteen we will nail down date for visit to Washington that's the that's what you expected from the call right I expected that presidents Lynskey would be convincing in his statements and comments of president trump that he was exactly that that he would investigate get to the bottom of things that happen in twenty sixteen and that if he was is strong and conveying who he is as a person and doing that that president trump would be convinced and and renew the invitation to the White House right but you listing to KGO may from corruption in this tax do you give the this is it is the word this is the worst corruption is not there investigating things that have happened in the past that would be corrupt would be investigating corruption you say a couple times in your opening statement you just said it again that is you know investigating things that happened in the past you are aware of course that most investigations relate to things that happened in the past right sorry yes okay so that's that doesn't really move the needle whether it's current or past in terms of the subject of the stadium right the investigation of things that happened in the past he also talked a little bit about the meeting that you had on July twenty sixth with presidents Lansky and ambassadors online in in Kiev is that right on the twenty sixth and reading will present someone ski yes and I believe you testified that the topic of investigations did not come up at all is that right yeah I don't recall them coming up just the general phone call you didn't you didn't take notes of that call of that meeting right now I did not buy because you had a they were staffers there to do that correct and so if there are two staffers who have who took notes of that meeting and testified that the subject of either sensitive topics or investigations came up are we better off taking their word for it than yours I have no reason to doubt their notes if they were notes taken contemporaneously at the meeting another witness testified before us Laura Cooper about a meeting that she had with you on July on August twentieth do you recall having that meeting with her because he didn't mention it in your your desk I did I did mention that I haven't been making the rounds to weigh in on lifting the the hold on security assistance to do that with all of the inter agency players and she recalled with some specificity that meeting which I believe is also based on her notes that you described the statement that you were trying to get presidents a Lenski to make two and I'll quote what she said disavow interference in U.

these and we're out here in Los Angeles get ready to kick off the opening of Ellie I don't show which means it's also award season in the auto industry and last night we were fortunate enough to be honored by Motor Trend for the twenty twenty Corp that they named it the car of the year which is just a huge honor it's a it's a super car and exotic mid engined vehicle that you can get for under sixty grand and that engineering prowess I believe is what really put it over the top the motor and by the police to let them honor us with this recognition and for those who are not familiar the engine has been moved in the twenty twenty corvette shadow what's the reason what's the thinking behind that why why was the engine moved in the new corvette for the last generation what we called the C. seven corvette was a front engine vehicle and our engineers said listen for the next generation core that were not able to do much more to the front engine configuration if we want to take this vehicle to the next level we have to put the engine back behind the driver make it a mid engine configuration that add more weight balance it allows you to have we the back of the vehicle so that you can have traction and get the car going under way in when you look at what some of the motor trend editors had to say E. and talking about the award and the comparisons to some of these European supercars it's pretty impressive that's probably the biggest the biggest the best thing that we hear out here is is you'll hear from owners of Porsche Lamborghini McLaren and Ferrari they will come up and look at the core of that and they'll be the performance numbers and then look at the pricing people this car looks better it's faster it can do zero to sixty quicker and has a higher top speed why would I do I need to spend a quarter of a million dollars when we can start with something and just around you know sixty grand for core that so that the part that is just the most remarkable I think is that you get all this power performance and it's stunning I mean the vehicle looks like a piece of art both from the outside and on the inside did I reach and that the new corvette is not yet into full production what's the update there yes that's correct so we'll start building the C. eight probably in early February and it'll then very quickly thereafter start arriving in dealerships so were

"Today the story of the house impeachment inquiry was the story of what did not happen for senior White House officials were supposed to appear on the hill to testify they did not show up here to explain why is national political correspondent moralizing him more hi there we're what more than a month into this now some people called on to answer questions show up others do not why did those on today's roster not appear well it is a little confusing because the White House of course said very famously that they didn't want to cooperate at all right some people have honored the subpoenas other people believe they have legal grounds to be immune from testifying to Congress and their lawyers after having been directed by the White House not to testify not to honor the subpoena they've gone to court and they're asking the judicial branch to adjudicate this who wins out in this constitutional class the let the clash the legislative branch of the executive this is frustrating to Congress they think it's a stalling tactic and they've said this could result in an article of obstruction one of the articles of impeachment could be about this refusal to testify but if it's a stalling tactic it would appear to be working these people did not show up they haven't testified right but it doesn't seem to be a giant roadblock to the impeachment inquiry which is steaming ahead they're starting the house is starting to release the transcripts of the closed door testimony they say we're going to have public hearings sometime this so it sounds like it's not going to derail the impeachment proceedings coming soon listen on one of the people who was invited asked to testify today the person with probably the most prominent role in the story would be John Eisenberg from the National Security Council who is he why would his testimony have been so significant well he's the top legal counsel at the White House normally you would never hear about him he actually has a triple barreled title he is the top legal advisor to the NSC he's the assistant to the president and he's a deputy counsel to the president for national security affairs and according to former Attorney General Michael move Casey whose work with Eisenberg in the past says all of those titles show how confident the White House was in Eisenberg's judgment you don't get to be any of those unless people have a great deal of confidence in your judgment I don't know anybody who's ever been all free and another person who worked with him in the past John knew who worked with him at the office of legal counsel in the George W. bush administration says that Eisenberg has a V. a reputation for being very careful thoughtful and very private Quincy he was paranoid if people thought he was just because they see him being very careful about who is allowed to have access to what classified information so Eisenberg's job was to protect the institution of the presidency from dumb ideas otherwise he was the one other job title yeah yeah well he was he was supposed to say this is illegal or unethical or it violates domestic law or international law and he is the one that according to reports from the closed door testimony heard the complaints about the officials who were very nervous and worried about the call they felt that the president's request to the Ukrainian president to do an investigation of the vines was inappropriate this is how the system is supposed to work they took their complaints to the White House counsel he took some notes then he decided to book the rough transcript of the call into a special highly classified computer system where few people would get to see which and the question is why was he trying to cover something up was there some very good reason to do this that we don't fully understand yet from what we know right well that is the big question Democrats say it's a cover up but according to a lot of former and Essie age that I've talked to say that at least in the short term it might have been a good idea he put it there while he tried to figure out the legalities of the situation he didn't wanted to leak in the meantime but this is what the Democrats want to talk to him about and of course it's unclear if they ever will get to know I was gonna ask are they ever going to get to speak to him well I think the court will have to rule that the subpoenas can be enforced before we hear from John Eisenberg is NPR national political correspondent Marc alliance in the White House thank you Mara

National security official to testify he was "concerned" by Trump's Ukraine call
"Who is lieutenant colonel Alexander Veneman well here's a few things to know he works at the White House as a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council he heard the call on July twenty fifth between president trump and president so Lynskey of Ukraine he's active duty arming and today he has testified in the impeachment inquiry under way on Capitol Hill and your national security correspondent Greg my re is here to tell us more had great Hey merrily so this is not and household name Alexander and I suspect most people never heard of them until this week what should we know about him please get this fascinating personal history he was born in Ukraine in the mid nineteen seventies when it was part of the Soviet Union and he has an identical twin and we'll have more on him in a moment their mother died when they were young and the father brought the twins and an older brother to New York when did men was three they settled in Brighton beach which is also called little Odessa because of all the Russian and Ukrainian immigrants many of them Jewish like that than men's after college he joins the military is sent to a rock at a time of heavy fighting in he's wounded in a roadside bomb and received a Purple Heart for this he speaks Russian and Ukrainian he's served at US embassies in Ukraine and Russia he has a master's degree from Harvard and became a Russian east European expert at the Pentagon okay so an accomplished guy let me steer as to why we're talking about him which is his role at the White House and how he came to listen to this July twenty fifth phone call between the two presidents right to last year he's asked to serve on the National Security Council very common for military state department CIA people to go there on a temporary assignment in his opening statement on Capitol Hill today he said that this spring he was troubled by what he called a false narrative about Ukraine and he cites a number of developments specifically this July twenty fifth call I said he was listening in the situation room and he he writes in his prepared testimony court I was concerned by the call I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U. S. citizen what did he do without concern well he wanted to raise it and he did have a confidante at the National Security Council we could turn to army lieutenant colonel EF Gainey than men his identical twin brother wow that's right they both work in the NSC in the west wing of the White House his brother is a lawyer who deals with ethics questions and Alexander van man race this with the NFC's top lawyer he said he'd often been encouraged to express his views and share his concern but was very proper about it said it had to go through the chain of command it to the proper authorities he stresses he's not the whistle blower but clearly he's been in the middle of the issue cranium discussions for the past year let me turn you to some of the criticism that are starting to circulate the president's supporters and seeking to undermine testimony that he may be delivering on Capitol Hill what are some of the doubts that they're trying to raise here so some Republicans are suggesting that he's more loyal to Ukraine than to the United States I'm here Sean Duffy an ex Republican congressman from Wisconsin speaking about them in on CNN today it seems very clear that he is incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense I don't know his concern about American policy but his main mission was to make sure that the Ukraine got those weapons I understand that we all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from so raising this question of loyalty no others like the house minority leader Kevin McCarthy said he just thinks women is wrong about his interpretation of events and in others like a Republican Liz Cheney who really pushed back to all this is that it's shameful to question the patriotism the love of the country of of someone like men men also would seem to be hard to do it for a guy who won as you said the Purple Heart serving for the US in Iraq he spent his entire adult life of serving the US military so what happens tomorrow he testifies does he go back to work at the White House that still where he works we haven't heard anything to the contrary but it could certainly be a little bit awkward if indeed he does and here's Greg Mari without profile of lieutenant colonel Alexander women thanks Greg my

Trump names hostage negotiator Robert O'Brien national security adviser
"President trump has named Robert o'brien to be his fourth national security adviser o'brien is taking over one of the most important foreign policy jobs in Washington the president praised his new national security adviser for his work as a state department hostage envoy. he's worked with me for quite awhile now are hostages are we've had a tremendous track record with respect to hostages but there are big challenges ahead not only is this a sensitive time in the world NPR's reporting finds that o'brien is taking over as the National Security Council struggles to attract talent the embassy of the White House team the coordinates advice and guidance that reaches the president here to talk about this is NPR White House correspondent Franco or done as a Franco hi tell us about what you've learned well you know until now this has been one of the most coveted jobs in national security and foreign policy but under this administration people are essentially staying away because they feel that US foreign policy has become too confrontational and politicized I spoke to about twelve current and former officials many of whom actually worked in the trump administration and they tell me that in the past they took a lot of pride and worked at the Annecy regardless of the party in power because they believe that the president deserve the best advice but that's not necessarily the case right now as we've reported so much on the turnover at the top of the administration are you saying that the same is true at the lower levels of the and I see where journalists might not be paying much attention day in day out well I mean there is a little bit of a difference there's obviously a lot of turnover at the National Security Council because these are temporary positions typically one John one one year jobs that can be renewed but for decades getting to the National Security Council was one of the most prestigious and sought after positions in US foreign policy it's a tough job but people also need to be committed and I spoke with Fernando Coutu served as senior director at the NSC im he described it this way going to the entity is not an easy thing by any means right you're working all sorts of ours essentially twenty four seven you're you're either on call or in the office and at times both and you know you're not getting paid anymore money. what's happening now is that these assignments that previously would have drawn two dozen applicants in careers are now getting very little interest and to be clear these generally rotations from people who already working government at the state department or a different agency absolutely so what is the White House saying about that well they did miss these dismissed the concerns as you'd expect a senior US official told me that the and a seat continues to attract some of the most talented people in federal government and that they're proud of the work they've done an issue such as the Middle East on reducing tensions in North Korea I'm bringing home U. S. hostages from abroad one official told me that people come here because they believe in the policies that they work on it's just not a highly political place they try to stay away from politics on the other hand I've spoken to a lot of people in this world who tell me that it's become common knowledge among career leaders that it's important this protect the up and coming talent from getting associated with some of this administration's decisions why is this more than just palace intrigue why does this matter these are select individuals they are the cream of the crop who literally have their hands on the policies that the president is pushing they are critical to ensuring that that the president has the best analysis information that all of that works in up to his desk would hiring Robert o'brien to be the White House national security adviser help with this problem I'm sure it'll I'm sure he will make some changes but he you know he really can't replace everyone some people insider obviously very hopeful for a Brian but I spoke with John Gans who wrote a book about the National Security Council he called the White House for years he said that. for me he said that Brian doesn't have the highest profile or deep experience in national security it's that some of the past advisors so was staff is going to be critical if he doesn't have that sort of public reputation deep relationships of this cabinet colleagues are deep relations president the staff can give the national security adviser shop you can get ideas you can get intelligence he can get. muscled from them to try and drive his ideas through out flying cabinet secretaries to all those kind of things so you know but is canceled me if he if if o'brien doesn't have a strong staff or staff that is sort of kind of leaving putting a drag on hand that can be another handicapped working in this job and you know this is a very very sensitive time when the United States is in the midst of a standoff with Iran a denuclearization pushing North Korea and a trade battle China NPR's White House correspondent Franco or doing as thank you
"nsc" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"Mm-hmm from the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac. Watch welcome back. I'm Paul Zhigo with Kim Strassel and Eh Bill mcgurn. Let's talk a little bit more about John Bolton and what his departure from the administration means I think it does put Mike Pompeo Pale the secretary of state in the driver seat on national security as the chief counsel to the President here the president firing had I'm Jim Mattis resigning earlier over disagreements with the president and the the new Mike Gaspar the the new defense secretary not a particularly strong voice but at the next NFC adviser who is he going to go to who could he. Who would who would take the job. I guess after after at this point Kim I mean Matt Pottenger is the is an aide on the NFC who knows Asia knows the Korean Rian issue quite well. I suppose he is a candidate. I guess somebody who may be jared. Kushner is very comfortable with would also this will be a potential candidate but I'm I'm trying to think of of names. Do you have any well. I was thinking about to whom Donald Trump interviewed back back when he was looking to fill the position after he got rid of McMaster not of course did lead to John Bolton but I remember at the time he also interviewed Lieutenant General Robert Kaslow's who was the superintendent of West Point he interviewed Keith Kellogg who was a retired lieutenant in general and had served as an acting national security advisor trump. You know historically at least at the beginning of his administration seemed to be much more comfortable with a presences in some of these jobs national security jobs and he may reach back into that field. Try to find someone but I think that would be a possibility as well bill. Do you have any thoughts I mean. I assume that Pompeo is going to play a big role here. I don't know the President President seems to like military figures and some of them are more used to saluting and carrying out their president's wishes I have to say I think it's a big loss for his administration. One of the biggest losses he's had so far because again even if he didn't take the direction it's probably was worth seeing gene hearing would John Bolton had to say is the president used to say so I don't I don't I don't see out there. Someone who's going to do it and if if he's got rid of him because he doesn't like to hear this kind of blunt objection that makes me worry about the criteria for the next national security adviser well and I I I share that had an Bolton was a check in particular on Willy Nilly negotiations. I think he he the president it really does. I think WANNA get into negotiation with the Iranians to get a new deal for example. I think he really does want to get into a negotiation with Vladimir. Putin wouldn't over Ukraine and and other things and I think the president was frustrated with the Venezuela Strategy with picking one on Widodo as a alternative to the Madero government and he wants to wanted to know why can't we why can't we oust Madero. Oh and so I I'm. I think it's going to be really interesting to see who will take the job I mean. Why would you take the job knowing? It's a very powerful job but knowing that you're basically at the behest of president who can't who changes his mind constantly. I mean I it would it would be very difficult. I think to serve this president now. Some people I talked to a State Department official Monday who said well what about who thought that Bolton might be in jeopardy and said what about Lindsey Graham the senator from South Carolina and I my reaction was why would he do that the secretary of state. Maybe but why why that we'll remember this could be the same question. Why would you be the fifth wife of Henry and radiate. The president are good. There's always ego and people tend to think going to be different. People have by the way people have. Bharti turned down that job I remember back when trump fired flynn his very first national security adviser and he gave a press conference and says Oh. I've got don't don't worry because I've got a great guy as a replacement and he appeared to be referring to Robert Hayward who was a retired Vice Admiral Admiral and former navy seal uh-huh and he he publicly turned down the job. He's like no that'd be really hard work twenty four hours a day seven days a week and I just can't make that commitment that's. I'm surely not the reason why a former navy seal turned down the job. It was because he didn't want to work for this. Particular President Well Jackie in the former four star army general who people see on Fox a lot and as a kind of backdoor backstage adviser to this administration on policy was very much supposed to any deal with Taliban I suppose he would. He be excellent at the at the job. The problem is I don't think he wants to do it either. He was an Liam previously offered the defense. Secretary Job has turned it down so begins to be in this hour right. Who would who would who would really take this. We'll see Let's turn briefly to congress back in town. Kim Anything to look for here. We're GONNA have a vote on the Judiciary Committee on impeachment. I guess sort of defining the parameters of of it but maybe that's less than meets the eye to eat yeah so extensively over the next few weeks. The big order of business is going to be the appropriations fight which is sort of a weird thing to even be having a fight over because they agreed to the overall for all numbers so now it's just a question of underlying figures of where where the dollars actually writing it out line by line but expect that to occupy a lot of the headlines then as you you said the kind of news this week is that jerrold Nadler who runs judiciary committee has said that later in the week they will hold a vote to sort of lay out the rules rules for hearings on the Committee for impeachment and this is actually a very tiny baby procedural step it in no way goes into the big steps steps that need to be done if you were actually to impeach president which first of all requires introducing articles of impeachment and having the house authorized judiciary a committee to then pursue those articles with an investigation. They still are not doing that. This is instead a will govern a bunch of very small procedures offers about who is empowered to actually interview witnesses and and what's the process by which the White House gets to respond to that but it's it's not impeachment. It's it falls very much in line with Nadler's broader pseudo impeachment march the parameters. They're throwing in now. Bill include the stormy Daniels Payoffs that trump allegedly made via Michael Cohen you have the new accusation Asian Jerry Nadler announced. They're going to look into the president the Justice Department's anti-trust probe of the four automakers who've done deal with the state of California on a fuel economy standards and now the big issue in that they're really gearing up his corruption which is alleged corruption of the personal kind that government officials have been staying at trump protest properties and therefore enriching a allegedly the the president It's kind of you know. Russia didn't work correction of justice doesn't seem to have caught on okay who am in any any anything we can find right look. It's any narrative in a storm right. The interesting thing is that if they're going to have these investigations a a an actual formal impeachment hearing gives them a lot more power because there's some kinds information you want to get from the executive branch that courts reluctant to agree to unless there's a judicial hearing which impeachment is sort of impeachment turn processes considered part of so if they really wanted to do this they would take the vote that Kim mentioned a floor vote on this but that's what Nancy Pelosi is for anything thing but an actual floor vote on real impeachment because that hurts a lot of Democrats that gave her the majority in Republican Publican districts in a lot of those the other thing. Those guys are interested in a lot of those people in those marginal districts like the I. I can't remember his name but he's from a Dallas suburb BURP. They want the deal the trade deal with Mexico and Canada because their district depends on it so a lot of those people they don't want impeachment and they do want WanNa trade deal and that's what she's dealing with all right. We will follow these issues as we go later in the week. thank you all for listening. Thanks Kim thanks bill and we'll be back tomorrow with another edition of Potomac Watch..
