US, Allies Issue 'Security Threat' Alerts at Kabul Airport

"And Australia have all warned of a high risk of an attack at Kabul airport and advised their nationals not to travel there. Those already outside the Afghan facility are advised to leave immediately. Lamia Iqbal is in Washington with the details. Our understanding is that this security alert this threats and this comes from comments made by President Biden is from Isis K. This Afghan affiliates of the so called Islamic State Group, the terrorist group they made up of about 502,000 fighters, But the theory is and this is, according to U. S intelligence officials, they could be heading to the airport with Bombs on trucks, suicide bombers and that's and the Taliban's demands for America to get out. It's probably what has influenced Joe Biden's decision for everyone to try and get out as soon as possible. Isis K or Isis. Khorasan is a sworn enemy of the Taliban. Javad Ali, a former director of the US National Security Council, says the danger posed by Isis K extremists is significant. They have conducted a series of high impact and spectacular and unfortunate lethal attacks across Afghanistan. So this is a group that needs to be taken very seriously and based on the recent statements by members of the administration would appear that there's some form of intelligence or other type of information suggesting that units or fighters aligned with Isis course on Thinking about or planning to conduct an attack. Thousands of people remain outside Kabul airport Despite the pace of the evacuation, continuing to pick up the U.

She did 10 tours of duty in Afghanistan after 9 11, sir. I did from 2000 and 1 2013 10 tours and I lost 72 service members. I did not bring home So, uh, I have an idea what sacrifice was and you know the successes. And sad to see what we've done there, and I characterize it like you, sir, is an unmitigated disaster. Unparalleled political and military history to receive five bronze stars two Purple hearts Before retiring in 2017. You're running for the Senate in New Hampshire. It's an honor to meet you, General. I read your comments. I'll let you in your own words. You've described it. Similarly, as I have as an Adam shift show. Um, and that the and, you know, tell me if I'm wrong in my assessment that right now where we are today, I don't see any military option because we know what the Taliban will do with 15,000. According to Joe Americans, behind enemy lines or around 15,000. Well, yes, there's only one thing to do, and unfortunately, it's a U turn. I agree with your assessment on President Trump's plan. Um I also know that seven years ago, the Obama administration have and if I'm correct, the vice president was part of that made a terrible decision to change our strategy. From a counterinsurgency strategy. Bottom up that was being very successful and we did have a mark on the wall of 2016, where we would be completely done with the transition of that program and the Taliban and Al Qaeda we believe would have been successfully defeated. So when he says he never heard of a plan or sorrow plant he's absolutely wrong because as vice president last administration him Susan Rice, the president, the National Security Council The chairman of the Joint Chiefs, staff secretary defense and all the leadership in Afghanistan knew this to be true.

We need to help fight the disease around the world to keep us safe here at home and to do the right thing of helping other people is the right thing to do. It's the smart thing to do. It's the strong thing to do. The U. S. Is already allocated 60 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to be used globally by the end of June. It's not cleared for use here yet, but can be sent overseas as soon as it passes a safety review with the FDA. The latest commitment from President Biden includes the visor, Madonna and Johnson and Johnson Vaccines. This means over the next six weeks, the United States America will send 80 million doses overseas. That represents 13%. The vaccine produced by the United States by the end of June.

US Officials To Hold Talks in Mexico & Guatemala on Migration

"Migrants coming to the U. S border. Thousands of unaccompanied teens and Children in U. S custody, some held in jail like facilities. More likely on the way. This is the urgent situation facing President Biden at the border today and an echo of the one he faced as vice president back in 2014. His approach so far is similar focus on the root causes. Today, he sent three top officials to Mexico and Guatemala to discuss how to manage the increasing numbers of people trying to reach the U. S. Joining us to talk more about this is Franco or join us and Przybyl, White House correspondent and Franco first tell us just the basics of this trip to Mexico. Well, I think this is a trip that really shows how urgent the situation really is. Most of the migrants to the U. S border are from three Central American countries. Mexico had been working with the former administration to keep them from making that journey through Mexico, but that largely stopped. Biden is now sending two top officials from the National Security Council and another from the state Department to the region. Roberta Jacobson. She will be leading talks with Mexico's foreign secretary, Marcello Abroad and other top Mexican officials. She was actually an ambassador to Mexico during the Obama administration, and she'll be joined by one Gonzales, the NSC senior director for the region. Now they'll be talking about how to manage the situation and also be exploring a joint development strategy for Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries, you know, trying to work together to address the root causes of migration. Let's take one example. Guatemala What's on the agenda there? Welcome. Salas, again from the NSC and Ricardo Zuniga from the State Department will travel to Guatemala to meet with president they part of the President Alejandro Giammetti and his foreign minister, Pedro Barolo, and other economic and security officials. They will also meet with representatives from the private sector and civil society groups. You know, the big picture here is that President Biden feels that security and prosperity in Central America Are closely linked to security and prosperity in the United States. Give us some context here in terms of how Biden waiting when he was vice president, and maybe what he's doing differently this time around as president. Well, his vice president, Biden led a similar effort to Rio to address the root causes of migration. It was called the Alliance for Prosperity, and it provided a billion dollars to help police training, judicial reform and and corruption. This time around. He wants to offer $4 billion. Now I talked to Andrew Seeley about this. He's the president of the Migration Policy Institute. He said Biden is finding out the hard reality about this challenge that faces all presidents. And that it's not easy. The border is to immigration politics with the Middle East is to foreign policy. You know, every president comes in determined to do something focus on a different part of immigration. And ends up sucked into the border in some way. Frankly, Biden now owns this issue and the political fall out in a way that he didn't when he was just the vice president and one big difference in his approach this time is that the administration is going to be a bit more clear eyed about the realities of corruption at the highest level of these governments and Central America. The administration says they will on Lee give the money to community and international organizations. How has the Biden administration responded to criticism from Republicans who are claiming that Biden triggered this influx of migrants by reversing some of the restrictive immigrant immigration policies? Of President Trump's, You know, it's been a difficult thing to answer. On the one hand, the bind Administration says Look, we're going to have a more humane policy and going to rebuild the asylum system, which was largely dismantled by the former administration. On the other hand, they're saying Don't come now. And there's a sense that that message is a little bit muddied. The White House insists they've been clear they point to the thousands of radio ads and targeted social media ads in the region that they say have reached millions of people. But the numbers of people coming to the border are still high. And while the administration says that most people are turned away Children or not, and some families are not as well. And will Biden visit the board? Well, he said yesterday that heals go at some point, but there's no sense that that will happen in the near future. That's NPR.

Why the hack of Microsoft's email system is getting worse

"Welcome back to fast. We're learning more about a massive hack attack on microsoft's widely use email software. Some thirty thousand. Us companies could have been hitting this attack age avarice has got the very latest ayman. Yeah melissa the white house says it's leading a whole of government response taking this very seriously. Here's the statement from the national security council earlier in response to this hack which is allegedly coming from china. They say this is an active threat still developing and we urge network operators to take it very seriously. They say they're still figuring out. Exactly how a network operators can mitigate this threat but i talked to the president of one of the cybersecurity companies earlier today one of the cyber security companies that i spotted this exploit in the wild and actually alerted microsoft to the fact that they had a problem with their microsoft exchange email server software and i asked him why this thing was so hard to see he explained. This was tricky. Take a listen. It was quite under the radar and the sense that it wouldn't trigger any security alarm bells. Wouldn't trigger antivirus software. The actions that are being taken you know weren't too alarming of raising the alert but when our team kind of dug in a bit. You know we've found. Hey these guys are actually exploiting a bug in microsoft exchange so too big problems here. One is the fact that if you patch this software. Now you're not necessarily going to mitigate the damage because the attacker could already be inside your systems right so if the chinese are in your system reading your email and you closed the front door. The burglar is still in the building. That's necessarily a solution. The other big problem here is that other hacking entities around the world watched this unfolding last week and decided to pile on take advantage of some of the same zero day exploits that these chinese hackers were allegedly using and that means that a lot more entities out there a lot more groups of bad guys could be exploiting this same information stealing this email and doing just about anything with it so you could see ransomware attacks. You could see all kinds of other developments as a result of this hack and we still haven't seen all of that play out yet so some real problems now for. It departments and for people in the suite trying to figure out what to do with all this aim and it sounds like it's mostly small and medium sized businesses but what alarms me was that electric providers also hit reportedly in this attack. And you sort of walk through and for people who are sort of discounting this thinking just small medium sized business at the chinese get into the the personal email of an ice cream parlor like that's not going to be a big deal but the ramifications are actually much bigger than that. Yeah i mean what microsoft said in its initial posting about this is that they were targeting infectious disease experts law firms non-governmental organizations so a range of things that could involve classified technology or could involve sort of defense industrial complex stuff generally but also very specific medical and disease information potentially around covid nineteen and other other things so just imagine the damage that could happen to you as a company. If you're law firm got hit by one of these writing and that's all your secrets are right so the problem is pretty exponential and we just don't know who else has now piled on and is also stealing emails as a result of this same exploit because a lot of bad guys around the world said. Hey you know what. That's a great idea. we can do that too. And they piled in through the week last week. All right amen. Thank you

Some Scientists Question W.H.O. Inquiry Into the Coronavirus Pandemic’s Origins

"About the recent commission that was looking into the origin of covert 19 over in China. Specifically, Jamie, you know one thing I want to ask you do you could see that there's a real possibility that we Are ultimately never going to get Maybe the data and information from the Wuhan lab that will ultimately maybe tell us whether or not it was a lab accident or whether it was truly Transmission from bats and animals. Yeah. No, I think that's quite likely and Anyone who's been paying close attention that China has engaged in a massive cover up over the last year, they immediately started destroying samples, eliminating or moving access to records. Imprisoning journalists and others asking questions, and they established a universal gag order not allow any of their scientists to speak publicly will write anything about the origins of the of the pandemic. And so the question is not is China engaged in an active car up to try to office Kate? The issue of the origins of the pandemic is should we play along? And that's why In open letter, but we've said that the world community needs to articulate what castigation looks like. We'll kind of access to records, samples and personnel. We need in order to find where called it comes from nights. I think it's almost it's very, very clear to that question is answerable thing. China is going to sell. Jeez, sorry about that. We've been in each in this cover up are bad here, is it but Let's set the standard and tells them tell the world I will not help and that's on them. And we shouldn't start with the compromise. If it is ultimately case that China is covering stuff and again, you know We? We don't know what this this juncture on day two be fair, But I do wonder Is this just not though? Potentially, You know another indication, Jamie, you'd have talked about this a lot, the complicated relationship that is the world with China. To be quite honest going forward, and so you know. Companies. Major companies want to be involved in China, and they're willing to maybe look the other way government's willing to look the other way. If there are, you know policies that they're uncomfortable with on this is just how it is. I mean, that's that is partly right. You mean China is a very big, very important country. There are areas where really need t collaborate Actively China even whether we like it or not. The betterment of the world. But my view do on this. And Eric, you and I have discussed over the carol is that you have to have standard right own behavior. In those interact can't be lowest common denominator relationships. It has to be. Oh, well. Here's the standard of what we believe and when so many people are dying. I'm a terrible enough believe totally of will pandemic. We have to be able to add very least the tough questions where this comes from, for all of our good, including the good of the people, China right exactly. But you also know, too, that it's kind of have been an interesting political global political world where China has also pointed the finger at the United States to say, you know, what are you doing to your people? You know what I mean? It's just kind of an interesting time here. It's true and they're not wrong in every ace. I mean, they're all kinds of terrible things. And whatever the origin of the pandemic, there is a reason why Nine people have died of covert 19 in Taiwan, and we're over 500,000 here in the United States. That's not the origin. It's the In many ways they're significantly The response our government, so there's a lot of fingers to point, including it ourselves, but we should just we need to be honest. When pointing in all directions. Hey, listen, we just have about 40 seconds left her. Do you think at this point to maybe a key conversation is to have is to identify other high risk lab research. That's being done on pathogens so that we just in case we make sure where aware of this and just got about 40 seconds. Yeah, absolutely. It's Cove. It comes from an accidental Lavely, which I think is most likely origin. But your listeners can go to the guy. Jamie Metzl dot com site, read the evidence and judge for themselves. I mean, maybe we have a bigger lab safety problem than we thought we had and then let's look carefully for is now looking to build another level for Virology Institute. In a high since it is the high throughput city next to that is an international travel. We need to be asking tough questions. Pandemic can't have to ask the tough questions. Are we going to ask? That's why we like talking with you because you're always asking the tough questions. Hey, Jamie. Nice to check in with you be well.

Healthcare providers and businesses, civic and religious and civil rights organizations and unions, all relying together on a common purpose. With urgency and purpose and resolve. Requires reasserting our global leadership, which is why I took in action yesterday for the United States to rejoin the World Health Organization. To reestablish our global pandemic office in the National Security Council. Requires Congress coming together to provide the necessary funding in the covert relief package and the American rescue plan that I will soon be sending to the Congress. No, these bold practical steps will not come cheaply. Failing to do so will cost us so much more dearly. I look forward to working with members of both parties in the Congress. We're in a national emergency. This time we treat it like one together the national plan. As the United States of America. As I said yesterday, my inaugural address There are moments in history when Maura's asked of a particular generation more baskets as Americans and other times We are that moment now. She's going to measure whether we're up to the task. I believe we are. American people have given so much already. But I believe they're ready to set big goals and pursue them with courage, conviction and honesty. Because the health of the nation is literally at stake. It's not hyperbole. I'm convinced the American people already as well to spare no effort. No expense to get this time. What could be more important. More people we vaccinate. The faster we do it. The sooner we can put this pandemic behind us. The sooner we could build our economy back and build it back better. Get back to our lives into our loved ones. We could do this. We could do this that we stand together. This fellow Americans as the United and as the United States of America. God bless those lost souls in this pandemic and their families all they left behind. My God bless all of you on the front lines would define the best of who we are as Americans. Thank you very much. I'm gonna go over this desk and sign these executive actions but again. This is the plan. This is the plan. Go online and get it. I know it's a lot of heavy reading. But it's all laid out in stark detail here. Thank you. All right there. You have it. President Biden. They're talking about his plan to attack the cove. It talking about 100 days of mask wearing for the country, talking about a plan to reopen schools. We knew all of this was coming. Which holds you at the top of the show that this was his plan. He's got a serious of executive actions that are already printed out and laid out in the desk in front of him. And that is that. Vice president behind him. I can't tell who that's about, you know, on the others. Oh, and then he found she looks nothing like Kamila Harris. I just was worried about because inside. I know what you're saying. I looked at the screen. There was just two dudes. No, there's there's somebody to is. Is right, our left standing and maroon dress. What, anyway? That's not Fauci. I believe that's the vice president looking over his shoulder, and Anthony Fauci is in the room as well. And I think other people will take to the podium and speak a little bit later. But these syriza of executive actions that he's going to sign or again like you said, not surprises. We knew a lot of this was coming, but this was his first real chance to to address the country on any real topic. Outside of the celebration from from yesterday in the normal ceremonies that we see in the inauguration. Hey, what else is going on? Time for what's happening. Perhaps I knew well, there was a fire. We talked a lot about vaccines over the course of these last 45 minutes an hour, so there was a huge fire that broke out. The world's largest vaccine manufacturer. It's called the Serum Institute of India and this huge complex there. There were smoke billowing out of one of the buildings in this massive complex in the city of Oh, Cooney Hoon. Huh? Poon in Mihara. Oh, my Rushed Mara Maharashtra state. Very good. It takes time. Good. I have a cramp. Again with the ailments. Where's your cramp? And my tongue?.

This is the bench hero show. So with Joe Biden presumably said to take office in January. As currently stands, It's someone I would say disquieting that we are now experiencing a bevy of foreign attacks on America's infrastructure systems like our internal infrastructure. According to the New York Times, Russian hackers broke into federal agencies on they did it last week. It's not great, the Trump administration acknowledged on Sunday. Hackers acting on behalf before the government, almost certainly a Russian intelligence agency broke into a range of key government networks, including in the Treasury and commerce departments and had free access to their email systems. Officials said the heart was on to determine of other parts of the government had been affected by what looked to be won the most sophisticated, perhaps the largest attacks on federal systems in the past five years. Several said national security related agencies were also targeted is not clear whether the system's contained highly classified material. Not only person from the National Security Council, said the U. S government is aware of these reports or taking all necessary steps to identify and remedy any possible issues related to this situation. Commerce Department acknowledged one of its agencies have been affected appeared to be the National Telecommunications and Information Administration that helps determine policy for Internet related issues, including setting standards and blocking imports and exports of technology deemed a national security risk. The measure of the sudden panic sweeping federal offices that DHS the Department of Homeland Security, ordered all agencies late Sunday night to shut down any use of a complex piece of network management software made by a company called solar winds, and it's all the networks belonging to government agencies and American corporations. Resurgent to give a deadline of noon Monday for a completion report confirming the software was no longer in use. But apparently it's too late. The Russians had already hacked in This would be the most sophisticated known theft of American government data by Moscow since a two year spree in 2014 2015. It took years to undo that damage, but President Obama decided at the time not to name the Russians perpetrators. Oh, yeah. I'm looking forward to that coming back. Number how how Donald Trump was in league with the Russians and then Barack Obama said in 2012. You provide the flexibility, then let them take over Syria as well as parts of Ukraine and also didn't announce that the Russians had hacked our National security infrastructure. Remember that time? Yeah, good times, So I'm glad that Democrats will be going back to that which was what we can experience. Meanwhile, Chinese infiltration efforts around the West continue apace mean the China is getting extremely aggressive, according to business, insider and explosive that data leak around two million Chinese Communist Party members that secretly embedded in some of the world's biggest companies, banks, media groups, universities and government agencies have been exposed. Australian newspaper obtained believe database which, apart from the names of around two million CCP members, has the party position birthday. National I D number and ethnicity. Among the companies mentioned Boeing Volkswagen Fizer AstraZeneca banks, including Andy and HSBC. Australian journalist in Sky News Sherry marks and said it's believed to be the first week of its kind in the world and exposes people who are members of the Communist Party or now living and working all over the world. Around 79,000 Chinese Communist Party branches have been set up inside Western companies where members are answerable directly to president G himself. That's that's all that I'm so glad that we now have entering power, a team that was overtly making deals for the sun in China. 100 is currently under investigation for possibly laundering money from China so poorly, Sam paying taxes on it.

"Two years earlier, Suzanne's brother and two in laws were murdered in North Carolina in an anti Muslim hate crime at UNC. So when she learned her cousin's Holland, Aruba have been murdered. She wanted answers. She fired up her e mail, and she started making calls. Holding the phone with one arm and a new baby with the other. And I basically cold emailed H. R. McMaster and requested a meeting with him concerning the murder of my American cousin, American journalist. Who was killed in Istanbul, and no one seemed to care. Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster was president Trump's national security advisor. Yet the power to shape the agenda on the National Security Council and a C for short His responses. Keep a responded and B It was a very courteous response and said that he would have the directors of Syria and Turkey available and Cary was meeting with Tennessee members with my baby in the room. I met up with Suzanne and her baby in Washington, and she just come from the State Department. They put Suzanne in touch with the FBI agents stationed in Turkey. She told me The agent there said that they needed turkeys permission to intervene. Xan, being a doctor wanted to see the Turkish autopsy reports and she also wanted updates on the case proceeded. The FBI agent agreed to help. I had received those reassurances, however, that agent had quickly cycled out and the next group that came on was pretty tight lipped, and I haven't heard much since. So you really haven't heard anything new or from anybody in a year or less. That's a long time a very long time. Our team learned later that the FBI did not open a case for Holla source inside the bureau. It tried to look up Hollis case in the FBI computer system and found nothing back in Istanbul reporter Fariba Nowa wanted to know how the Turkish prosecutor Built the murder case against Hollis cousin Ahmed Barakat, But the case was a black box.

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Tanya, mostly in Colbert's City, California, and I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington. There's no indication that President Trump's positive Corona virus test has had any immediate impact on U. S National security, But it does raise some practical questions. It also underscores America's troubled response to the virus, and it creates another moment of uncertainty in the trump era. For more on this, we're joined by NPR National security correspondent Greg Murray. Hi, Greg. Hi, Ari. So from a national security perspective, how should people be looking at the president's illness will is. The White House staff has told us the president has mild symptoms, but he is giving direction to his staff, according to the White House. But in this condition does raise some practical questions. How does he get a security briefing? Hey likes toe have that face to face, usually with several people that it could include the briefer and the CIA director director of National intelligence. So you know, we presumably have to get it by phone or video conference or reading the book that is prepared for him every day if needed. How would he convene a meeting of the National Security Council? Oh, are hold a meeting in the situation room. So some of these practical questions that we haven't heard how they'll be worked out yet. And the National Security Council. The situation room are just the tip of the spear. There is this massive apparatus underneath him from the military to the National Security Agency's What does this mean? All of them. So the Pentagon put out a statement today, just saying it's business as usual, the spokesman Jonathan Hoffman, said. Quote There's no change to the readiness or capability of our armed forces are national command and control structure is in no way affected by this announcement. We should also note that the defense secretary Mark Esper, has been travelling in North Africa. He's continuing that trip is planned. A Secretary of State Mike Mike Pompeo, has been in Europe He's been flying on his way back today also was planned, so they both seem to be signaling. There's no immediate crisis. Let's carry on. We know what we're doing. Of course, President Trump is not the first world leader to catch this disease. But how are other countries likely to interpret this development in the U. S? Well, the U. S stature and credibility really has taken some pretty big hits for the way that the country has handled the Corona virus the last seven months or so. The U. S. Has the most cases the most death. It's been unwilling to take the global leadership role that it's done so often in the past, relations with allies have weakened In some cases, some rival Seymour emboldened Many countries are really asking, you know is this the way that a superpower conducts itself is the U. S competent in this virus has been a challenge for every country in the U. S. Has fared poorly and now the president the people around him have been hit hit with it, Despite all the resource is at their disposal. Does the president's illness increase the likelihood that some foreign adversary might take some kind of aggressive action against the U. S? Well, this is always a concern during election season and perhaps even more so now, with Americans so focused on the events at home. You know, Imagine you're a foreign leader and you see the US distracted with all these internal dramas. The president who's tested positive in election a month away a possible transition to a new administration if President Trump were to lose So you may well think this is a good moment to act and perhaps not something that's directed at the United States, but something that you wouldn't want the US to notice or respond to. We've certainly seen October surprises in previous elections. And this could increase. The likelihood will see one this year and Greg this election season. You've been doing a lot of reporting on disinformation, conspiracy theories the role of foreign countries in spreading thumb and so does this news. Add to those concerns? Yes, I mean, anecdotally. We've already seen some things today of people online, claiming the president's positive test isn't riel or there is being orchestrated to gain sympathy or being used to raise campaign funding. So we should certainly expect to see all sorts of false stories. And, of course, the president himself has downplayed the virus mocked those wearing mask and suggested treatment's that doctors rejected outright. So all this is contributed to a climate that makes it easier to spread bad information and help conspiracies Take hold in this very volatile election season. That is NPR. National security correspondent Greg Murray. Thanks, Greg. My pleasure. One of the country's most influential coal executives, has black lung disease. Bob Murray, founder of Murray, Energy, long fought rules aimed at preventing the debilitating disease.

"They thought, Well, maybe there's something here, but we're not quite sure so then they would have taken each other too, probably even to the National Security Council staff. Something called a high level group for interagency meetings where the National Security Council would share something at a mid level, not by a secretary of state, but it was like a midlevel government person. At the various agencies would assemble and they would go around the room. And maybe the CIA guy would say, Look, we've got this intelligence. We're not sure of it. But this is where we are. And the report would come from the various bosses. They will go back. And let's confirm this so the intelligence agencies might look for another source so they might talk to another intelligence agency. Shane, Are you hearing this? Is it? Just a rumor? Has anybody actually put eyes on it? This is something we've seen in text messages that are going back and forth between bad guys. Is this an informant? So they really flesh it out? They try to find out if there really is something to this Or is it just a guy in a bar? Who is just talking big or was there again? So once you get to the point where you've got multiple confirmation, and I believe the standard is three things so Do they see other people talking about like two bad guys talking to each other about it. Which would be a telegraphic. You know the Elektronik. Is there anybody who sort of seen it personally, So it's human intelligence. And maybe have they picked up something from satellite intelligence of correspondents. So it was it was something would be vetted. Several times before especially something. This explosive is this Before it would reach the president's desk. Now it may be that if they're getting close to it, they Roy think there's something there. They might say It's a preliminary thing. Look, we're investigating this. We're not sure what it is. We were investigating it further. We'll get back to you. And presumably the national security advisor was to the point where he was convinced there was something he would then send it to the president..

U. ambassador and president trump so let's listen to his actual description of that phone call in his testimony today this was a very distinctive experience in my I've seen him standing like this my foreign service career of someone at a lunch in a restaurant making a call on a cell phone to the present mistakes be able to hear his voice three distinct personalities you know seen on television very colorful language was used they were directly addressing something that I had been wondering about working on for weeks and even months a topic that has led to the recall of my former boss the former ambassador so with so much talk during these hearings of hearsay this is the person who actually heard the president's voice heard the president's words heard the conversation what is this add to our understanding of the narrative will it undermine one of the core defenses on it from the White House and from Republicans in that no one could get inside the president's head you're inferring what he was trying to do with these things and David Holmes is the only person who testified that he heard the president directly ask for these investigations now we did hear Republicans pushed back against homes on this saying that well you're saying that you overheard a conversation you do you weren't on the phone directly it was not on speaker phone and we have to trust your recollection of this that's how they try to push back and let's listen to part of the Republican push back here which generally is nothing actually happens the aid to Ukraine ultimately got through the the interview on CNN never happened this is the top Republican on the committee Devin newness of California Democrats have tried to solve this dilemma with a simple slogan he got caught president trump we are to believe was just about to do something wrong and getting caught was the only reason he backed down from whatever nefarious fought crime the Democrats are accusing him of almost two committee so you've talked to a lot of Republicans on the hill have they found this to be an effective argument I think it's the best argument they can land on at the end of all of this testimony because they have a point the investigations did never were never launch the aid was released and the president did meet with presidents Lynskey although it was in New York it was not in the oval office as as he requested in that meeting still is not happen but that is the defense that Republicans are going to continue to use is that you can't impeach someone for actions that never took place I want to and with two short clips the first from a Republican than from a Democrat let's first listen to Jim Jordan who was brought in just to support the president in these hearings speaking outside of the chamber get.

"And Eurasia on the National Security Council we're gonna take a brief station break and we're back discussing the coincidence that the director of national intelligence Dan coats and these deputies so golden were fired by trump three days after his infamous phone call with Ukraine's president. welcome back I media monsters in this is background briefing available twenty four seven a background briefing dot org and joining us now is Katrina Mulligan who is the managing director for national security and international policy at the center for American progress she previously served as an attorney advised and directed for preparedness and response in the national security division of the US department of justice where she represented the department on a wide range of dash good counsel policy committees and prior to joining the founder justice Mulligan said on the Nash could counsel staff is the director for disclosure response which you develop strategy and policy in response to unauthorized disclosures of classified information she also said in several roles within the office of the director of national intelligence including as associate director for strategic communications initiative special adviser for detainee affairs and chief of the mission management group welcome to background briefing Katrina morality here well thank you and your resume indicate you've been at the heart of pretty much everything's exploding in the headlines as we speak the trainer but when you talk about dealing with an authorized lakes and director full disclosure response did you ever think that it would be the president of the United States who would be guilty of unauthorized leaks. well no I mean I work for a very different president when we were when we were doing that work you know I I do think that it's important to draw on and pretty significant distinction between the activities of the whistleblower here who is not leaking classified information but instead of going through quite meticulously I might add that that's designed to prevent leaks of classified information and distinguished back from what we saw for example with with the unauthorized disclosures by Edward Snowden who went to the crash and didn't follow the legal process that and laid out now I do think that there are some concerns about the way the the workable our process had unfolded in that case but a lot of that stems from the fact that as you point out nobody expected including the doctors at those rule that that be wrong do you are in that would be being expelled by a whistleblower would in fact be depressing United state. in the process of the particles and whistleblowers followed in this particular whistleblower did follow those particles because they were they were stymied by the DOJ in the day and night with the acting the and I but the point is I guess that if you didn't have that process and if if people inside the government who witness wrongdoing didn't have that Avenue they were there for a leak to the press. well aid exactly and I think one of the questions that a lot of people in Washington are rating right now in the wake of how this is unfolded is that how that set a very good example for future whistleblowers I mean in this heat you have somebody who did absolutely everything right to deny and the acting the United patrimony this week confirmed that that this person is followed every wool every step of the way and still came up against you know pretty formidable odds in getting this information to the Congress and and ultimately to the American public but but again the reason that that's the case then the reason that the DOJ and the B. and I were so flummoxed by what you do here because the the world were written. with the assumption that has turned out not to be the case that the president of the United States would never be a bad actor in this case the president the bad actor and nobody quite knows what to do about it. well you can add to that list of bad actors the Attorney General of the United States. at least it looks that way. absolutely the Attorney General I mean there are actually quite a long list at this point and of individuals and officials within the US government who have a lot of explaining to do the Attorney General obviously is at the top of that list but I would throw out a few others in the neck I think that secretary palm pale had been explaining to do Walker who resigned Jeff yesterday had some explaining to do I think the senior director for intelligence programs inside and the National Security Council staff who oversees the classified extends into which the call transcripts and were improperly house had some explaining to do so I mean the list goes on. and again I'm speaking with Christian American and managing director for national security and international policy at the center for American progress you preview said as an attorney advisor director for preparedness and response at the national security division of the US department of justice and prior to that said on the National Security Council staff and director full disclosure response which you develop strategies and policies in response to unauthorized disclosures of classified information so speaking of which back in at twenty seventeen not too far into his tenure president Donald Trump told Russia's foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and the Russian ambassador in Kissimmee act that he thought that Russia's interference in the twenty sixteen election was unimportant and everybody does it and he also in the course of that conversation which by the way no the members of the American press we'll give an access only the Russian press that's the only way we know about basically except from apparently somebody that was and I take it that that he also gave away very very highly sensitive and intelligence information about isis that put in jeopardy an Israeli intelligence asset so that was pretty extraordinary. so what was your what what's your sense of what happened to the staff here when they saw this in the particular with pride of that of course he had that angry phone call with the Australian prime minister who is essentially an ally and so there are two issues here one. I guess the stuff figured well if the word gets out that every well later that trump talk to gets attacked in. and yelled at nobody's gonna want to talk to him its owner was do you think they were acting in order to put all of this material on the secret seven were they doing this to protect from from himself or were they actively involved in a cover up. I don't think that those two things are mutually exclusive and I think as we you know and pack what happened here I think what we're going to find it there are more than one motivation for certain things that makes them no lack wrong so what you have here if you have a president who behaves in ways that are in there thank you himself when when it gets in the public domain the way that he talked to people the things that he said it and parenting to him the American people that people work for him so on the one hand you might say well it's natural that he's trying to limit the distribution of these these types of calls because they either American or their sensitive about on the other hand the people the process is there a place the routine practices for handling presidential level phone calls with foreign leaders already incredibly thick here date you know in the Obama administration I can hardly remember an example and the type of you know call their transcripts being improperly leader disclosed it just didn't happen they're handled on you know already classified systems they're you know they're already limited distribution with extraordinary here is that the people who he is trying to you know the president and his advisers are trying to protect his information from are the people who worked at the White House who have a reason to to have access to these calls in the course of their duties they're trying to do limit the distribution. to the people who are authorized to have that information which is truly extraordinary and it really does yeah this wasn't about preventing leaks in preventing it from getting out the public domain it would actually to prevent people who are not the political operators in the White House but the but the career civil servant from seeing just how corrupt the president's activities were and and impact blowing the whistle. well I think the bigger picture here is of course and I've often argued that if you could get a camera into the oval office and film trump and the way he is this incredibly insecure ammeter Adam is death come flying about just usually in a screaming and ranting nobody around nobody much likes working for him but the people who voted for him who absolutely almost like a cold you can't break that spell but my sense is if you can actually get a camera in there and lets the the people who voted for him understand what they've done I mean that that seems to be the heart of this thing is that we keep **** footing around the fact that we have this. reckless ignorant dangerous and disgraceful person in the oval office in I guess we've sort of crossed the Rubicon intensive impeachment bed too do you think at the end of the day. papal letter witnessed this amateurism well I mean it seems like at least one person of conscience the whistle blower had had enough. you know. I are you from I hesitate and the reason I hesitate is actually because I've been tremendously disappointed as the last sort of seventy two hours of the folder that we haven't seen more resignation and more condemnation and more whistleblowers conform forward I would have expected that we would see more about by now now that's not the day that as as back in circumstances and pull that you are going to start to see that as that I think that we need all grace ourselves that next week could prove more shocking and and under games and then lastly wise but but I think one of the big questions that I'm gonna continue to have it why so many men and women allowed themselves to be part of that for as long as they do so that's that's a serious question but your other point to press the United States has basically home being called his his public service responsibilities and his private interest in in in in in a couple ways he's done that in ways that have already been in the public domain for example bringing it you know his his under qualified friends and family members and installing them as White House operator I'm clear mandate but he's done not now we know in private lately is that are you know known to the public yet and I have no question in my mind that if the present United stated is openly campaign for foreign governments to interfere in our Alexian and is is withholding you know federally appropriated find it for you know in order to put additional pressure on foreign leaders did you to take a kind of action that there's more that we don't know and I want to know what's in there the transcripts of is called with Saudi Arabia with leaders with with. and I and I suspect that what we'll find is even more wrong doing even more learning of the line between his role in the public trust and his role as as a candidate for office. well even what's been released down that was released by the White House in the transcript of the phone call with presents a landscape view crane which of course is started this latest scandal it does seem to be an incomplete transcript so it wasn't a half hour conversation and I'm told that he also in that conversation among other things that have been redacted or with held in carriages a landscape to make this dreadful deal that with the with Putin this presence what with the cranes had to hand over one of the Russians involved in the shoot down of the Malaysian airline in which they still she didn't want to do but that was sort of in house sold him as a pre condition for getting any cooperation from America but at some point or other maybe do you think we'll get into that server will get into there's there's notes because obviously there's series executive. which they had been on the other hand the questions and you just erased you know the conversation that trump had within the ash shortly after the crash again madam who had to be incriminating holds likely to be incriminating and all of his conversations with potent might well be incriminating so will that damn ever be breached. well I certainly hope so as a as a where myself I would I would argue that the executive privilege doesn't stand kit to covering up crime certainly you know it's there to protect information that is in the routine course and as you know professional do need this this administration has stretched it beyond all recognition but I think even they will have a hard time arguing that they can hide behind executive privilege in order to prevent the disclosure and clearly criminal activity so what I think we're gonna end up with here is I think I think that the the house has a real responsibility to to reach as far as they possibly can in in try to get this information but one of the most important actors in the federal government he's gonna have the most to say about whether you know that that ultimately occurred or not is actually in a be denied and whether that remain acting United on the wire or whoever is installed and this Congress have to be absolutely and dedicated to ensuring that is somebody with experience and integrity. so let's focus in on the day and I just in the last few minutes him and in in particular on how Jeff three days after the phone conversation between trump and the landscape that's we now have gotten a partial transcript of trump's find Dan coats on the twenty eighth of July and he also insisted that the.

"Com slash jazz. Let's start the show. Lots of military news in this week. Our news that really affects the military with the D H S secretary step down her understood second down, we still don't have a secretary defense. This is the longest that. We haven't had a secretary of defense than actual Senate confirmed secretary of defense since that position was established. I think today actually reporting early marks one hundred days without a Senate confirmed nomination as the department of defense. No DHS secretary active while we have a national emergency declared things are running amok all of us. That's that's kinda crazy when you consider all the things that are going on around the world, the fact that we just don't have that secretary either the secretaries in place is really just mind blowing. I just do you think that's on the docket every day or they just keep pushing down the list like either intentional. Honestly, I think it's an intentional thing that they're not doing. So they don't have to get somebody Senate confirmed or using loopholes and they fired the head of the secret service to saw. That all three months, but something is a foot Chem trails, and I want to also mention the Iranian guard. I love the fact that whenever we said that they were a terrorist organization. They're like, no your Terence's organization. I I just think that every if you're conflicting military might across the world just declare everybody a terrorist organization.

"The authority to do it Chris. You're right. He got elected. He can't do it. It doesn't mean he should do it. And it certainly doesn't mean the congress should not ask tough questions about why Jared so needed to have this clearance, and this just shows another complication with hiring family members. It can cloud your judgment. Did he override in any other cases, there's reporting that in at least forty cases people were denied security clearances were those overridden as well. There's a process for a reason here, and it's to protect national security. You know that Ben Rhodes was denied a clearance. Okay. He's a vacuous. Upset roads was on the national Security Council staff for a Barack Obama look this. This is all about the president being able to hire who he wants and have them in the position that he wants all right? Hey, guys. Let me bring in jelly that. Nobody is talking about. I haven't been able to confirm it as far as the reporting. I've looked at nobody else has been able to confirm this. The key question is whether Jared Kushner actually ever took a polygraph and whether he passed or failed so as somebody who had a top secret security clearance for five years an important part of that process for ninety five percent of the people who get that clearance. Ultimately is whether they passed or failed a polygraph. If Jared Kushner passed a polygraph test, and it was then the judgment of the CIA and the Intel community who shouldn't get the clearance and the president overrode at that one matter if Jared Kushner failed a polygraph test, and then the president overrode the decision of the Intel community to deny him clearance. Anyway, that is an entirely different. I have to say that's a pretty explosive. I'm not saying you're alleging.
