An associate of Rudy Giuliani, who was a figure in former president Trump's first impeachment investigation, was sentenced today to 20 months in prison for fraud and campaign finance crimes. Lev Parnas had helped Giuliani connect with Ukrainian figures as part of a campaign to dig up dirt on president Joe Biden's son. Parnas asked for leniency on the grounds that he had helped the congressional probe, but prosecutors said the Soviet born businessman's help was in response to a subpoena and deserved little credit in March Parnas pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit wire fraud, admitting that between 2012 and 2019 he conspired with another person to give investors false information about a Florida based business.

Why Did Cassidy Hutchinson Testify Today at Jan. 6 Hearing?

"What is truth An individual testified today Cass hutchison And she's testified many times before this committee in secret But its last time they wanted her to go public Her testimony has become more aggressive The answer is to become more aggressive because her prior attorney was associated with the Trump people and her current attorneys associated with former attorney general Jeff Sessions so there's no connection there I don't know what that means When you give testimony it doesn't matter who your lawyer is He give testimony under oath Under penalty of perjury whether it's in the back rooms of the January 6th committee or whether it's in a public hearing So that doesn't make sense to me Why all of a sudden this emergency we've got to listen to her and then they say well her life has been threatened That's possible but how does that affect getting her testimony out immediately And not waiting till July or not having it earlier All of a sudden we have new evidence From an individual who apparently witnessed and heard everything Trump Pence Meadows White House lawyers Republican members of Congress

Trump Is Ready to Abandon Attorney John Eastman

"Reporting this morning, I'm sure you've heard is that they're getting ready to turn on John eastman that Trump is getting ready to throw Josh. Which you look at any history and go, of course he is. He does it to everybody. What's John eastman going to do is the question, is he going to flip, do you think, is he going to save himself? You know, what could he do that would hurt? He is a lawyer who is in total disrepute because let's face it. His theory was total nonsense. It had even he in a red line version had said, here's the opposite, which is true. And so he knew that what he was saying was fraudulent. Donald Trump knew it was fraudulent because everybody else, including his own lawyers, and his vice president were saying, this is not a power that I have. I can not do this. It's illegal. It seems to me that you can't get away with this continuously. So even if eastman were to turn on him, it would certainly would help. I mean, everybody who turns is good. It's just, I wonder what happened to people like Pence, why didn't he come forward? Why didn't he enforce the Twenty-fifth Amendment? When his own life was put in

"Mike, I'm pretty troubled because for 20 months since November of 2020, I sort of gave Trump the benefit of the doubt, I don't like Pelosi and I don't like what she did with this committee. And I'm not in favor of one sided committees, et cetera. Right. But what emerges is that by early December of 2020, Trump knew he had no factual no evidentiary basis to contest the election. Everything since then from Trump has been wrong. And this brings me no joy whatsoever. And I hear your point about Democrats stick together. But we must be adherent. We must be supportive. We must be embracing always the constitution. So in my humble opinion, Pence turned out the hero, Trump the goat, and I resent everything that Trump has done since. Yeah, I mean, let me push back gently because I respect your opinion. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I respect what you have to say, and I believe that many people are feeling exactly the way you're feeling right

What the January 6 Committee Doesn’t Want You to Know About January 6

"The January 6th hearings are pushing on and as we know these hearings aren't really a presentation. Of different points of view, they're not a trial in any official sense of the term. There are no, there's no cross examination, evidence is presented selectively. And so they're pushing a particular narrative. And let's say you know nothing about January 6th, you're just watching this for the first time. You would get the idea that you've got this sort of massive violent mob of Trump supporters who break their way into the capitol, storm the capitol, you would assume that they brought all kinds of weapons and arms into the capitol. Why? Because after all, they're launching an insurrection. They're trying to overthrow the government. How do you overthrow the government of the most powerful country in the world? If you show up without even guns or knives or bombs. So the assumption would be that all these guys came in, they were heavily armed. This was a kind of replay, if you will of the Civil War. In fact, we've heard a lot of analogies between January 6th and the Civil War. And then you would think that this Trump mob unleashed an orgy of violence that resulted in all these people dropping dead, police officers who were killed like Brian sicknick, this, of course, was part of the narrative being pushed by The New York Times. This man was bludgeoned to death, he would also believe that all these other capital police officers died. In fact, there was some reports of suicides in the immediate aftermath of January 6th, so it was like these people are so traumatized. They actually took their own life, but in effect their deaths were caused by the violence of January 6th, and so this is the picture that the, that the Democrats are trying to paint. And the kind of comic twist, they're not even trying to imply that this mob was trying to kill Mike Pence.

"pence" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"Invading the capitol were listening. And we will never ever forget as for the legal justification that Pence was using to defy the president's wishes. Well, that was after very detailed and deep study that Greg Jacob his attorney was doing with the likes of Michael ludig and others. Jacob described their efforts going deep into history to try and ascertain what the framers of the constitution intended and what they did not intend. And then we went to history. We examined every single electoral vote count that had happened in Congress since the beginning of the country. No vice president in 230 years of history had ever claimed to have that kind of authority, hadn't claimed authority to reject electoral votes, had not claimed authority to return electoral votes back to the states. When testing this theory with John eastman, the conservative sort of conspiracy theorist here in this scheme, Greg Jacob asked him if this theory was so legally sound, why wouldn't Al Gore have used it in 2000? The other key point in this matches some previous hearings of what the committee is trying to do here, which is to set the stage that Donald Trump knew what he was doing was wrong. Knew he was asking Pence to do something that was not constitutional. Knew he was continuing to sell a lie about election fraud that didn't exist. This continues to be a theme. And in fact, Greg Jacob describing his conversations with eastman as he was doing his due diligence and sounding out the president's sort of outside legal adviser on this said that they together had come to the agreement that the Supreme Court would eventually kick this legal theory out probably they would lose at the high court 9 to zero. And one of the most astonishing revelations is that even after the insurrection occurred, the capital was attacked. There was blood on Capitol Hill inside the Citadel of democracy, even after all of that, after Mike Pence in the wee hours of the morning of the 7th, made sure to reconvene and finish his constitutional duty of counting and announcing the electoral vote totals, certifying the presidential election, eastman apparently went back to pence's team and said, okay, so now that you have gone through these motions, can the vice president now try and test this and send this contest back to the states and reject these electors? We also heard this pretty prophetic piece of testimony in a videotape deposition. One of the members of Trump's White House counsel's office, attorney hirschman, said that he was pushing back against eastman before the January 6th riot occurred. And he had a pretty clear picture in his mind of the kind of fire Trump and eastman were playing with here. I said, are you out of your F in mind? That was pretty blunt. I said, you can completely crazy. So you're going to turn around until 78 plus million people in this country that you're theory is this is how you're going to invalidate their votes because you think election was stolen. And I said, they're not going to tolerate that. So you're going to cause riots in the streets. And he said, words to the effect of there's been violence in the history of our country, to protect the democracy or protect the republic. It was today's hearing that may have sort of the longest shelf life, because if we end up in a Republican presidential nomination contest, where both Donald Trump and Mike Pence are candidates running against each other to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2024, much of what got aired today publicly in this hearing will no doubt. In fact, that presidential race in a significant way. So these words that we heard from Pence world today, no doubt will live on in American.

"pence" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"Mister pence's courage on January 6th. Our democracy came dangerously close to catastrophe. Despite all the legal guidance that was coming out of the vice president's operation towards the president's team that what was being asked of Mike Pence simply was not within the realm of possibility because it wasn't within the lines of the law. That did not hold sway with Donald Trump. Clearly, he still just until the hours before the vice president was to preside over this congressional session, was still pressuring Pence to disobey the law and obey his order and desire to not certify the election. And Trump was using largely this conspiracy theory created by conservative attorney John eastman. Somebody who pleaded the 5th a hundred times in his testimony before the January 6th committee. And in fact, we also learned today that eastman asked Rudy Giuliani to include his name on a list of potential pardons that Donald Trump may issue after the insurrection on the 6th had occurred. We also got a dramatic telling of a scene inside the Oval Office on the morning of January 6th, when Mike Pence for the last time was explaining to Donald Trump, he was not allowed to do what the president was asking him to do and that he was going to fulfill his constitutional duty. Well, as Ivanka Trump described it, she never heard her father talk to the vice president in this kind of tone. He was described as calling Pence a wimp on the phone. Using the derogatory P word in going after his vice president on the phone, expressing how displeased he was, that Pence would not. Violate the law, and refuse to certify the election. For pence's part, he relied on the legal guidance from his White House counsel Greg Jacob, as well as that of conservative judge Michael ludig, who was once a short lister to be a Supreme Court nominee when president George W. Bush was in office. These are conservative, legal thinkers, and they were supplying vice president Pence with the legal justification as to why he had to move forward, fulfilling his constitutional duty and could not agree to what the president and eastman were asking him to do. Here's Greg Jacob, chief counsel for vice president Pence. But the vice president's first instinct when he heard this theory was that there was no way that our framers would ever have put one person, particularly not a person who had a direct interest in the outcome because they were on the ticket for the election in a role to have decisive impact on the outcome of the election. And our review of text history and frankly just common sense all confirmed the vice president's first instinct on that point. A key term of Jacob's agreement to testify before the committee was that he would not discuss any direct conversations between Trump and Pence. Mark short did that, though, in his deposition. Was it your impression of vice president had directly conveyed his position on these issues to the president, not just to the world through a dear colleague letter, but directly to president Trump? Many times. And he had been consistent in conveying his position to the president very consistent. Obviously, if you at all paid attention in the Trump presidency, Mike Pence was about as loyal of vice president as any president has ever had. But the stakes got too high because our very democracy was at stake care. And Mike Pence was not willing to cross that line. And not only that, he wasn't willing to cross that line despite the clear and present danger to his own personal well-being and that of his family up on Capitol Hill on the 6th, and Mark short his chief of staff, he saw what was building in advance of the stop the steel rally and advance of the insurrection. And he was very worried about what the very public Trump Pence split would mean. So worried he went to the Secret Service. Sarah was for the vice president's security. And so I wanted to make sure the head of the vice president's Secret Service was aware that likely as these disagreements would keep more public with the president would lash out in some way. We learned today that at one point as Pence was being evacuated to a secure location inside the capitol complex, he and his entourage came within 40 feet of the rioters. I mean, Greg Jacob described being able to hear the din of the rioters as they were being moved by Secret Service to a secure location. And this is all in the minutes after Donald Trump was pouring gasoline on the fire, tweeting about his disappointment in Mike Pence and clearly his supporters who were.

If what happened to Kavanaugh was an assassination attempt, you know, what I keep saying, the not attempt since no assassination was actually attempted. Which again, I'm not saying it wasn't a scary situation. It was a scary situation. But the way the right is using that, like, oh, why are we wasting our time on an insurrection when a guy with a gun, you know, wandered outside of Brett Kavanaugh's house and then turned himself in and admitted that he was mentally ill and suicidal. And, you know, why aren't we talking about that all the time? That's the right right now. Well, and then apparently the bill to give more protection to Supreme Court Justices to the Democrats added in safety for their staffers.

The Rude Pundit: We Should Keep Expectations Low Over Jan. 6 Hearings

"Well, you said every once in a while, I'm still stunned at how close we came to 2020 election being stolen, and I'm just as stunned that it was Mike Pence, who saved democracy. Yeah, I don't know what your thoughts are about January 6th. I mean, obviously we're not surprised fox is not going to or any of it. But what are your expectations for? Do you think it's going to move the needle? What are you, how are you feeling? I think, honestly, I think that they should lower expectations. I think that the smart strategy here is to say, we're just going to report to the American people, blah, blah, blah. And that way, you know, when revelations start coming out, they don't see, it isn't that, oh, they promised us so much. It's wow, holy cow. That's really what they found. It was way more than they promised us. That's the way I'd go

"He would have done it if he could have. But among voters in the crowd here at kenesaw, there was not a ton of clamor for Pence to get in the race just yet. It was not because of their overwhelming love for Trump necessarily, but more of a sense of weariness from the whole era. I don't think it's good for Kemp to be campaigning with pets. He just reminds us how divided the Republican Party here is at a time when we can't afford to be. Says Ryan coven, a 22 year old psychology student at nearby kennesaw state university, and a former campaign worker for Republicans two years ago. Pence has some nerve being up here with Kemp, he should never show his face. Asked if Pence a former conservative radio host should be considering a 2024 run. There was zero hesitation from COVID. Absolutely not. That was also the sentiment from 78 year old elva dornbush, a retired government hand from kennesaw, who would prefer desantis as the nominee. Pence should definitely not run. But Pence was widely seen as a top tier candidate in this crowd, even among the Pence skeptics. The vice president is not Georgia. Brian Kemp is Georgia, but to be honest, Pence and desantis would be the frontrunners in 2024, says Jay Neal, a 58 year old public employee who traveled over an hour from chickamauga. What about Trump? I hope he doesn't run. He's too divisive. Pence, who has run his campaigns from the ledger and not the heart, would not entertain a run if he couldn't win. Where Trump ran on his gut, pence's circle of consultants runs their efforts on math, although Pence is a man of deep personal faith, prayers are no substitutes for ballots, and he has never been one to mistake the two. Do I think he can get elected? I'd be for him, but there's too much Trump in the party, says bova, his childhood friend. More than that, the party may just have two little pence left in it. No matter his enviable talents..

"Mike Pence is road testing his 2024 pitch in Georgia. By Philip Elliott. Kennesaw, Georgia. It's sometimes easy to forget how effective Mike Pence can be when he zeros in on a political foe. The former vice president on Monday joined governor Brian Kemp for a rally in the northern Atlanta suburbs, where kempf's bid for renomination against David perdue has emerged as a marquee race in Tuesday's Georgia primaries, as Pence worked the crowd, effectively leveling a clear critique of expected democratic nominee Stacey Abrams, while talking up both Kemp's accomplishments and some of his own. He also reminded his fellow Republicans that his skills as a salesman remained formidable should he choose to make another run for office. Warning against the radical left wing that he claimed wants to encroach on traditional values and indoctrinate students as racists, Pence hit all the conservative movements, greatest hits. Abortion, prayer, and wokeness. The Biden Harris administration has unleashed a tidal wave of left wing policies, eroded our standing in the world and stifled our economy. Testing what sounded a whole lot like a campaign speech for his own return to power. Frankly, Democrats have moved so fast, sometimes I don't think the left hand knows what the far left hand is doing. And despite his own, well documented disagreements with former president Donald Trump, Pence was more than eager to wrap himself in the four years of the Trump Pence administration, which many Republicans view as an unmitigated success. In 48 short months, we achieved the lowest unemployment, the highest household income, the most energy production, the most pro American trade deals, the most secure border, and the strongest military the world has ever known. We did that. If that sounds like the words of a White House candidate, and not someone just brought in by a pal for an 11th hour attaboy, it's no accident. Pence is clearly considering his next steps and politics. His political operation never really shut down. And some of his long serving aides are still afoot, as he moves around the country looking to boost strategic allies like Kemp, a popular governor in an unexpected battleground state. Not one to go by his gut, pence's performance in Georgia Monday evening suggests he anticipates being able to take some credit for Kemp's expected win on Tuesday, and earn a chit for down the road..

"I see the reaction is getting from people. They say, why didn't he just hand it back to the legislatures? A couple months later, in February, Trump had falsely declared yet again that Pence, quote, could have overturned the election. Hence could not have overturned the election because the election was legitimately certified across the states in the Electoral College and Congress did its ceremonial role of doing the formal tally and acceptance of the Electoral College results. Hence went to sort of the heart of the conservative movement. The federalist society in February to take issue with Donald Trump's accusation that he somehow could have overturned the election. President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election. The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone. And frankly, there is no idea more on American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president. Mike Pence clearly sees some political advantage and opportunity in carving out a different path inside the Republican Party than the one Donald Trump pursues. We all know Mike Pence very much would like to run for president in 2024. That's very much a possibility. But this issue of the 2020 election continues to be a dominant part of the intraparty Republican conversation because Donald Trump wants it to be. So in Georgia, Donald Trump goes out, gets the former senator David perdue into the race, promises his backing, Trump indeed does endorse Purdue, Purdue features Trump in many of his campaign ads and listen to what produce calling card is in this gubernatorial primary. This was a debate on WTO C in Savannah last month. Folks, the election in 2020 was rigged and stolen. The media has told us for a year and a half that nothing happened. This is all a made up dream that everything had been disproven. Well, that's just not true. And in that same debate, Purdue goes on the attack against Kemp for saying that he didn't do enough to investigate claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election. Here was Kemp's pushback. Well, obviously, senator perdue, again, is lying about my record because he doesn't have one of his own to win the next election. But what I did when I was frustrated about the election, I did something about it. Working with the Georgia General Assembly to pass the elections integrity at strongest in the country. So as we've said, the month of May is setting up a whole series of tests for Donald Trump's power and sway inside the Republican Party. And at the end of the month, May 24th, that is going to be perhaps one of the biggest tests. All the polling to this point suggests Kemp is the FrontRunner. So Pence may end up being on the winning side of this, and Trump very well may end up on the losing side of this. One big question that hovers all over these 2022 midterm moves is the 2024 presidential race. Will Donald Trump run again? Will he be able to clear the primary field so that he has just a clear path of his own to getting the nomination again? Or will people like Mike Pence or maybe former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo? Other conservatives still say, hey, even if Donald Trump is running for reelection, I'm going to run for the Republican Party nomination two. Hence is clearly doing everything to leave that option open for himself. In fact, CNN caught up with Pence in New Hampshire at the end of last year to ask him about 2024. You know, our focus is on 2022 that I can honestly tell you in 2023, my family and I will do it. We've always done. And that is what reflect will pray. We'll determine where we might best serve and we'll go where we're called. That was a classic answer to that question when a politician doesn't yet want to reveal their intentions, but wants to leave every option on the table. That's it for today's political briefing.

"I'm David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Friday, may 13th. Former vice president Mike Pence makes his biggest political break yet from his former boss, Donald Trump. Early Friday morning, the Kemp campaign in Georgia sends out a press release, announcing that former vice president Mike Pence is coming to Georgia to rally on behalf of and with the incumbent governor Brian Kemp in his Republican primary battle against former senator David perdue and that that rally will take place on the eve of the primary, Monday, May 23rd, the primary itself is on Tuesday, May 24th. You might usually just be like, oh, okay, there's a former Republican vice president helping out a Republican incumbent governor, except that that puts Mike Pence on the complete other side of this contest from Donald Trump. His former boss. And if you followed the Trump Pence administration, what you saw was a vice president who was unfailingly loyal to Donald Trump, no matter what the controversial tweet of the day was, Mike Pence made sure to stay in lockstep with Donald Trump. Now, we all know what happened to that relationship in the closing days of the Trump Pence administration, and that is, Donald Trump supporters were overheard, chanting, hang Mike Pence outside the capitol during the January 6th insurrection, while the vice president was inside the capitol, presiding over the certification of the 2020 election. So this is a fascinating development to see Pence. Just go in, get on the other side of this Republican primary from Donald Trump in a really high profile fashion because there's probably not a single candidate running this year that Donald Trump is more desirous of defeating than Brian Kemp because he thinks Brian Kemp basically owes winning the governorship back in 2018 to Donald Trump. Anything's Brian Kemp should never have certified the legitimate election results. This is just the latest development in this story of Trump and Pence in the last year. We've been tracking this for months now as the relationship appears all but totally disintegrated, but has now been breaking out into public view. Here was Donald Trump at a speaking event he did with Bill O'Reilly last December, one of the attendees caught it on social media and posted it. I think Mike has been very badly hurt by what took place with respect to January 6th. I think he's been, I think he's been mortally wounded, frankly, because.

"Pence says Donald Trump was wrong to try to overturn election. Emir Locke was executed by Minneapolis police, say parents. And death toll from COVID hits 900,000 in United States. It's Saturday February 5. I'm Anthony Davis. Former U.S. vice president Mike Pence has dismissed claims by Donald Trump that he could have stopped Joe Biden becoming president last year. In his strongest rebuttal yet. He said mister Trump was wrong to suggest he had the right to overturn the election. Separately yesterday, the Republican Party censured two of its top lawmakers for investigating the capital riots. Four people died in the riot and a police officer who suffered two strokes while defending the building died the following day. The two legislators Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger are the only Republicans on a congressional select committee investigating the riots. The statement by the Republican National Committee accused the pair of helping to persecute ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse. The RNC appeared to suggest rioters had been involved in legitimate political actions, but RNC chair rona mcdaniel clarified that it was a reference to legitimate political discourse that had nothing to do with the violence at the capitol. The vote was passed by an overwhelming majority of the 168 RNC members at their winter meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. The committee said it would immediately cease any and all support of them as party members, without removing them from the party, both lawmakers issued statements in advance of the vote. Liz Cheney said the leaders of the Republican Party have made themselves willing hostages to a man who admits he tried to overturn a presidential election and suggests he would pardon January 6th defendants, some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy. Speaking in on Lando, Florida, former vice president Mike Pence was responding to Donald Trump's comments on Sunday that he could have overturned the election if he had wanted to. President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election, the presidency belongs to the American people, and the American people alone, mister Pence said. The Minneapolis mayor on Friday imposed a moratorium on no knock warrants after emir lock was killed this week as a S.W.A.T. team executed a search warrant. Mayor Jacob Frey said the moratorium is effective immediately, and will ban requests for and the execution of warrants in which police do not announce themselves. Frey said that while the moratorium is in place, he and Minneapolis police department leadership will work with national experts to review and suggest revisions to the department's policy. No matter what information comes to light, it won't change the fact that emir Locke's life was cut short for a said in a statement. The parents of Amir Locke and their attorney said on Friday that police woke him from a deep sleep, and that he reached in confusion for a legal firearm to protect himself. Locke's parents, Andre Locke and Karen wells, described him as respectful, including to police and said some of their relatives work in law enforcement. Well, said the couple's coached their son on how to act and do what they needed to do whenever they encountered police officers because of the danger to unarmed black males. They didn't even give him a chance attorney Ben krump said, adding that it was shocking that Minneapolis police had not learned from the death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed in a botched raid at her home in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2020, leading to calls for an end to no knock warrants nationwide. The killing prompted outrage in Minneapolis where prominent activists confronted the mayor and interim police chief at a news conference on Thursday. Nikema levy Armstrong a civil rights attorney called the city's release of information, the anatomy of a cover up. The death toll from COVID-19 in the U.S. hit 900,000 on Friday, less than two months after eclipsing 800,000. The two year total as compiled by Johns Hopkins University is greater than the population of Indianapolis. San Francisco or Charlotte, North Carolina. The milestone comes more than 13 months into a vaccination drive that has been beset by misinformation and political legal strife, though the shots have proved safe and highly effective at preventing serious illness and death. It's an astronomically high number, and if you had told most Americans two years ago as this pandemic was getting going that 900,000 Americans would die over the next few years, I think most people would not have believed it, said doctor Ashish jha, dean of the Brown university school of public health. He lamented that most of the deaths happened after the vaccine gained authorization. We got the medical science right, we failed on the social science. We failed on how to help people get vaccinated to combat disinformation to not politicize this jar set. Those are the places where we have failed as America. Just 64% of the population is fully vaccinated, or about 212 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The milestone came as omicron is loosening its grip on the country. The number of Americans in the hospital with COVID-19 has declined 15% since mid January to about a 124,000. But deaths are still running high at more than 2400 a day on average, the most since last winter, and they are on the rise in at least 35 states, reflecting the lag time between when victims become infected and when they succumb. Still, public health officials have expressed hope that the worst of omikron is coming to an end. While they caution that things could still go bad again and.

The rundown here is the headline from the new york. Times it says. Us fines no evidence of alien technology and flying objects but can't rule it out either. A new report concedes that much about the observed phenomena remains difficult to explain including their acceleration as well as ability to change. Direction and submerge american intelligence officials have found no evidence that aerial phenomena witnessed by navy pilots in recent years our spacecraft but they still cannot explain the unusual movements that have mystified scientists and the military according to senior administration officials briefed on the findings of a highly anticipated government report the report determines that a vast majority of more than one hundred twenty incidents over the past two decades did not originate from any american military or other advanced. Us government technology. The officials said that determination would appear to eliminate the possibility that navy pilots who reported seen unexplained aircraft might have encountered programs. The government meant to keep secret. But that's about the only conclusive finding in the classified indulgence report. The official said and while the forthcoming and classified version expected to be released to congress by june twenty fifth will present few other firm conclusions senior officials briefed on the intelligence concluded that the very ambiguity of the findings meant the government could not definitively rule out theories that the phenomena observed by military pilots might be alien spacecraft the report concedes that much about the observed phenomenon remains difficult to explain including their acceleration as well as the ability to change direction and submerge. One possible explanation that the phenomenon could be weather balloons or other research blues. Just not hold up. Cases because of changes in wind speed of the time of some of the interactions. The final report will include a classified. Annex officials said while the annex will not contain any evidence concluding that the phenomenon alien spacecraft the officials acknowledged that the fact that it would remain off limits to the public will likely continue to fuel speculation many of the more than one hundred twenty incidents examined in the report from navy personnel. The report also examined incidents involving foreign militaries over the last two decades intelligence officials believe at least some of the aerial phenomena could have been experimental technology from a rival power most likely russia or china one senior official briefed on the intelligence said without hesitation that us officials knew it was not american technology. He said there was worry. Among intelligence and military officials that china and russia could be experimenting with hypersonic. Technology has invested heavily in sight. Hyper sonics believing. The technology offers the ability to evade american missile defense technology. China has also developed hypersonic weaponry and included it in military parades. If the phenomena were chinese or russian aircraft that suggest the two powers hypersonic research has far outpaced american developments in what encounter strange objects like a spinning top movie against the wind appeared almost daily from the summer of two thousand fourteen to march twenty fifteen high in the skies of the east coast. Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible ingen or infrared exhaust plumes. But they could reach thirty thousand feet and hypersonic speeds lieutenant ryan graves and f. A eighteen super hornet pilot. Who was with the navy for ten years told the new york times in an interview these things would-be out there. Every day and with speeds had other pilots observed he said twelve hours in the air at eleven hours longer than we'd expect in two thousand fourteen as super hoard pilot had a near collision with one of the objects and an official mishap report was filed. Some of the incidents were recorded video as well. Now what are st- hyper sonics. This is from two thousand and nineteen also with the washington post the russian military and fridays that it had deployed a hypersonic weapon that flies at super fast speeds and can easily evade missile defense systems. American officials said they had little doubt that the russians have been working on hypersonic weapons which sit on top of a modified missile.

Have you ever seen that video of the guy who appears on a daytime talk show during the eighties or nineties, and he's a whistling performer and he whistles, and the camera cuts away to the crowd, and it's just perplexed.

"You need to get through each day today. We of an indepth look at the man who's been in around and behind the news. We've been bringing you all week. He's Mike Pence the vice president of the United States A witness an impeachment inquiry implicated. Mike Pence this week pence's office soon denied. The vice president was in the loop as president. Trump sought investigations in Ukraine. Pence's boss also placed a long phone call to Fox and among other things. The president told the TV hosts that Mike Pence is still still his choice for vice president in twenty twenty but that raises a deeper question. How did Mike Pence get on that ticket and wants his road forward now? Here's our colleague. Rachel Martin Mike Pence is living in his own world. At least one that is separate from the political crisis that has engulfed the man. He works for to tweets say at all Wednesday afternoon. The vice president's twitter feeds showed a photo of him visiting with school kids in Wisconsin the caption so awesome meeting some amazing easing young Americans at roughly the same time. President Trump tweeted this quote. I want nothing I want. Nothing I want no quid pro quo. He continues can use this. witch-hunt must end now so bad for our country up until now vice president pence has managed to keep his name out of the center of the impeachment inquiry until ambassador. Gordon Sahlins public testimony. When he described a conversation he had with the vice president? In Warsaw. Ahead of Pence's meeting with Ukraine's leader. I mentioned the vice president pence before the meetings with the Ukrainians that I had concerns that the delay in aid had become tied to the issue of investigations. This was the first time during impeachment. Hearing that a witness connected Mike Pence to a possible quid. Pro Quo. It forced the vice president to respond areas on a local news affiliate in Wisconsin W. Elias N. I made no comments my meeting with presidents Alinsky concerning any investigations or tying investigations to US aid into Ukraine. And I have no recollection of any discussion with embassador saw before that meeting. So how did Mike Pence end up here. Who is the man that now finds himself defending the president? He serves through an impeachment inquiry and defending himself. If you really want to understand him read his college thesis. Nineteen eighty eighty is fascinating the religious expressions of Abraham Lincoln. I fell over. It was incredible. Tom Lubyanka covered pence as a reporter in Indiana. Hanna is recent. Biography is titled Piety and Power. Mike Pence in the taking of the White House. Lubyanka got a copy of pence's thesis from Hanover College in Indiana it's all all about Abraham Lincoln's ambivalence towards organized religion his own agnostic schism and how that played to his own political apparel in his career and this is senior Mike Pence as citizens what he's twenty one years old senior in college and I'm reading this and I'm like this isn't about Eva Lincoln. This this is about Mike Pence. You can see him reasoning through the political calculus with the faith calculus. It is stunning stunning. Because it shows how from an early age Mike Pence understood how politics and religion worked together a while the barrel to know that saving my soul to listen to the radio. Eighty this as his. We'll give you one more chance. Say Feel so good gotta get up and dance. What you're hearing right now was the soundtrack to Mike Pence's salvation? They shot. He grew up in a conservative Catholic family. Sort of just going through the motions of faith and then he went to a music festival in Kentucky. What you're hearing now is music from one one of the bands that perform there? And this is where Mike Pence says he found. Jesus I heard gloss a great singing in a heard. Lots of wonderful preaching and Saturday night's sitting in a light rain I I walked down and not not out of anything other than my heart really finally broke with the deep deep realization. That what had happened on the cross in some infinitesimal way happened for me and I gave my life and made a personal decision. That trustees I this is a turning point in pence's religious evolution. His political career though was less linear he ran for Congress twice in nineteen eighty the eight and nine hundred ninety. He loses both times then he decides to try his hand at something else. Give me a shout open. Friday on the Mike Pence show a daily talk. DOC radio show. I am always jazzed because we have an opportunity to play catch up with you the listeners of this broadcast on topics that we covered over the course of that. We journalist Tom. Lubyanka says the radio show was about more than just getting pence's name out there. I think people take the wrong lesson from that when they say that. Oh he built his name. I D. That's what you need to win. I think you're missing the bigger point. which is this is where he gets his antenna from and his political antenna point him to the kinds of cultural and social issues that revved up a religious religious audience and then you remember that senior thesis about Abraham Lincoln and how he learned to use religion as a political tool? And you start to understand how Mike Pence starts to to find his political niche. The problem here was a discomfort with adultery. And does that trouble anybody else. Give me a call us at eight hundred six. Oh three reminder adultery no longer a big deal in Indiana and in America pence finally wins that Congressional seat in the year. Two thousand then in two thousand thirteen eighteen. He becomes the governor of Indiana. Lo Bianco says it was not a good fit. He didn't like being governor as a manager he was not good at it and this is where he got himself into the trouble in the net time he was detached and he spent too much time fundraising for his own. long-term presidential goals and not enough time being in the job. Robin living the role of governor. Which is why? Lo Bianco says the battle over controversial religious. Liberty Law in Indiana caught pence off guard. The religious just freedom restoration act led some national companies to boycott the state. Here's pence with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on March twenty ninth two thousand fifteen. Yes or no now. If a florist in Indiana refuses to serve a gay couple at their wedding is that legal. Now in Indiana George this is this. This is where this debate has gone with misinformation. And it's just a question sir. Yes Oh well he really wants done by at all. This is Jim Aderholt. He was pence's chief of staff back back then. Aderholt says after that law was amended pence met directly with members of the LGBT community. He began to meet and establish relationships with folks. Could you just weren't regularly in office. And and maybe they should have been more regular in our office so he did a lot of talking but Mike Pence never changed his mind about the core issues issues that are often used as a litmus test in conservative circles he still believes marriage should happen only between a man and a woman and that abortion is wrong. He likes to say conservative. But I'm not angry about it. He loves talking to people that disagree with them at listening. And you'll never hear him so unkind word you'll never hear them react in a way. That's unkind. I'm but that does stand. In contrast to the style of the president of the United States with whom he serves but again his purposes vice president is to would be a partner and to provide godly counsel to be prayerful and to give him the best council candidate and to also be ready. And God forbid something were to happen. And he's he's a very loyal person and he understands that everyone's flawed and in different ways and he's very forgiving of those flaws and vice presidential candidate. Mike Pence was was even able to forgive this. And when you star they let you do it. You can do anything whatever you want to do. Anything this this is what Jim Aderholt said about the access. Hollywood tape policed it up and of course not but at the same time. He's a very loyal person and he wasn't going anywhere I mean that's that he'd made a pledge. You made a promise and he was going to keep that promise. Did it make sense to you as someone who knew him. Well that he that he joined the ticket. It'd make complete sense to me because then governor Mike Pence and currently vice president pence these public services a calling and when that invitation came him for him to be considered he prayed about it and he thought about and talked a lot of people but really in his heart. He said whatever happens happens there. If that's how I am to be used used that's how I can best help our country. I'm willing to do that. He sees it as a calling. I'm a little bit nervous right now. In the United States of America wow thank you for honoring us. A couple of months. After the inauguration vice president pence appeared on stage with David Hughes the lead pastor of Church by the glades and Evangelical Mega Church in South Florida and without mentioning Donald Trump's name pastor hughes makes it clear that some of pence's most loyal supporters were still coming to grips with the vicious gop primary and pence's new partnership with Donald J trump. And I thought you did a brilliant job having having respectful discourse with people who politically had different points of views. What how would you guide us? How can the church help bring unity to a country? Hundred were convictions are so polarized. You get the sense when you watch this. Exchange that pence is hearing between the lines. It's as if he knows the words the name not spoken spoken and he just says it out loud again. The question is how can this church help bring unity to the country. And this is how Mike Pence answers I well I I honestly think that number one very humbled by your by your comments and it's just the greatest privilege of my life to vice president to president. Donald Trauma. Mike Pence knows why he was put on the ticket in the first place. He knows how important moments like. This are to keeping the evangelical vote in trump's column. This is the calling. This is the work you know for me. It's it's it what the president really personifies Asana Faez. Is I think the the pathway forward here he's got he's got broad shoulders but he's got a big heart. I tell people sometimes you know. He's he's bigger in life. You know always memorable charismatic. And then there's me it's like I guess. He wanted to balance the ticket. You know pence goes on some talking points about how Donald Trump will be a unifier and then he walks through the door. That's been opened in this conversation. And he separates prates himself from the man who works for you know for me for my house at all. It all really does come down to just wanting to treat others the way you want to be treated. It's a small reminder that yes he has been called to serve and he will but he is not Donald J trump. He is Michael Richard Pence a man with his own ambitions ambitions and if he can move past the impeachment inquiry if he can defend this president but keep his distance he could find his own path to the White House. The Vice President keeps a Bible liable verse on the Mantle of his home. It's Jeremiah Chapter Twenty nine verse. Eleven and it reads for. I know the plans I have for you plans to prosper you and not to harm mm-hmm you plans to give you hope and a future but as the impeachment inquiry draws pence further inside the calling for him now the work is to just survived present a special report from up first from.
