Pelosi not yet ready to transmit Trump's impeachment to the Senate

"For the past several weeks. There's been one burning question dominating this saga. When Will Nancy Pelosi? The speaker of the house transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate and therefore launched the trial process in the Senate. While this morning Speaker Pelosi finally addressed at that point. Take a listen now in terms of impeachment. You'll keep asking me the same question. I keep giving you the same answer. As I said right from the start art we need to see that the arena in which we are sending our managers is that too much to ask of course addressing that point in an answering that question or two different things. A Pelosi later added that she's not holding onto the articles indefinitely and that she would probably transmit them soon soon. I've got to fantastic guests to help me make sense of all of this political gamesmanship in a few minutes will be talking with CNN. National Security and legal analysts. Susan Hennessy but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN Politics Congressional reporter. Alex Rogers Alex. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks so much for me so it seems to me. After days. Days Days of stasis on this story we did learn in the last twenty four hours several things one as I just said speaker. Pelosi said she's likely to transmit these soon she's not going to hold onto them forever. To President. Trump actually asserted yet again today. He's opened. Witnesses named some witnesses. He's interested in of course. Course which are total non starters For the Democrats in terms of Adam Schiff or Joe Biden or hunter Biden or the whistle blower but is has said and he's going to really leave this to the Senate. We learned that Mitch McConnell the majority leader in the Senate went to the White House and briefed the president on what the contours of this trial is going to look like. So it sounds like the president has more information about Mitch. McConnell's vision of how this trial is going to play out then speaker. Pelosi does which is why she's still hanging onto the articles as we're recording this at least and Finally we've learned that there seems to be a strategic divide going on between the president and and his advisors and or some of his advisers and certainly the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell in terms of whether or not he wants some very vociferous defenders from the House Republican Conference To join in defending his case in the Senate McConnell of course worried that Too partisan partisan of abroal may upset the apple cart with some of the moderate center. Republicans that they need to keep on board with the plan here so all of those. Those things have emerged in the last twenty four hours and yet Nancy Pelosi is still holding onto the articles of impeachment. What does that mean soon when you expect her to send these to the Senate or she said today today I'll send them over when I'm ready and we're still trying to figure out what leverage she has Senator Majority Leader Mitch? McConnell said yesterday that she has none he has the votes. It's a simple majority devote Democrats are hoping that there are four Republicans to join them. But now we've talked to Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney and all of them are on Mitch McConnell. Donald Seidel Miss. So we're wondering here. What Nancy Pelosi is looking for if there's any possible signal that she could get from The Republican leader. She says that she just wants to see the rules. Mitch McConnell says let's just go back to the nineteen ninety nine precedent under Clinton and. Just run with that now she. It seemed to me when she walked into a press conference. Today Should two main message point. She wanted to hit when it came to the issue of impeachment. One was. She's not buying this whole Mitch. McConnell nineteen ninety nine Clinton enroll. She thinks he's not portraying how those were set up namely the Clinton rules were devised in a bipartisan agreement. And I think there was one hundred hundred nothing vote supporting them. In the United States Senate That was hammered out with the blessing of the leaders. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle. Nothing like that is going on with McConnell when Schumer right now is Pelosi's point number one so she doesn't By his argument that this is playing by the Clinton rules. That was one thing she wanted to drive home but number two it seems she wanted to sort of list Her reasons that she thinks she's been victorious in this decision to hold onto the articles articles namely that it has put the issue of documentation and witnesses front and center in a way that if the articles had immediately gone over in December. Maybe they weren't. What do you make of that? I mean her point is that there's a number of witnesses who have not been Who have refused to testify and the Clinton Peterman process? All of those witnesses had already talked before that that evidence was already out there But the thing is that she right now is losing not only those moderate Republicans Republicans at your needs but also Democrats. There's a number of them who've said in the past couple of days that let's just let's just get this started senator. Dianne Feinstein said if we're going to do it she she she should send them over. I don't see what good delay does. She's later walk that back. Other Congressmen have also Adam Smith at today on CNN. Basically said let's transmit these articles goals that's during the Senate trial and then he later said I misspoke wait. I missed how Senator Feinstein walked back to her comments. What did she say? Because it's all those comments my eyes widen so I I missed the walk back. She said today that those comments are now being taken out of context okay. I don't know if that's a real walk back. They're not out of context are they. I don't know vow. The the thing though is what does holding the articles now do for the Democrats. Are they really going to be able to change the rules. Or they can get these witnesses upfront. No Mitch McConnell has the votes. And he's ready to go he's made that crystal clear what What do you make of this concern concern that? McConnell has apparently expressed that Having some very vocal House Republican conference members who were Lord Diehard trump supporters at all costs be part of his defense may upset the apple cart of sort of the Republican unanimity. That you just described that he's been able cobbled together. How is how big of a concern do you sense? Is this for McConnell. So we have some reporting from Sarah Westwood Phil Mattingly came out today. There's there's this struggle between some of president trump's allies who think that a legalistic argument by Patsy. Baloney the White House counsel so is Not going to be good enough. You need to win this. It's it's not only trial but it's somewhat theater have your most for syphilis. Allies Congressman Jim Jordan Congressman Mark Meadows. Some of these people who can articulate the president's argument in different style. Then you also have Senator Mitch McConnell's view. It appears where those those people are going to turn off exactly the Republicans that you need. You Need Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski the people people in the middle so the president right now is receiving this conflicting advice. And we don't know yet. I don't think the decision has been made on who is going to defend the president and the trial yet. Yeah no we have not heard that decision we know that Pets Bologna and his team. The White House counsel on his team Have put together a plan and that there seems to be one but we don't yet know exactly who will be doing the defending of the president. And I think that the president who we know consume so much Fox News and sort of has this echo chamber constantly feedback loop in in. His mind doesn't always necessarily think the way McConnell does about Are we just doing a full on brawl with the Democrats here or is there work to be done with your own party here and McConnell's clearly trying to make the case Mr President don't lose sight. Yes you're going to be acquitted but you've got to still keep your party on board. I think right now if you just run the nineteen ninety nine Clinton trial rules you will see each side making their argument and then a couple of days of questions from the senators and then you vote whether to dismiss the whole thing right then there or then to also get into the witnesses that Democrats think will bolster their case my final question for you before we go to break you say that Democrats will boast of their case. What about the fact that Donald Trump is still out there saying he wants them? Witnesses I Mitch. McConnell sort of in a no witnesses camp. He doesn't necessarily want to see Joe Biden or Hunter Abidin or the whistle blower called. So there's a difference there too is they're not of course There are some Republicans who want to see honor Biden. They WANNA Have I think Senator Ron Johnson said this week the full gamut of witnesses. But you've also seen Senator Susan Collins who you know really the crucial senator here say a that it would be inappropriate inappropriate for president trump to say to China investigate on our Biden Susan Collins once witnesses But we we don't really think that means also hundred I think we've that means you know people with firsthand evidence other people who testified before the house. Yeah actual impertinent witnesses to this What these articles of impeachment are about and therefore pertinent to this trial? Alex let's take a pause and our conversation for the moment legal analysts Susan. Hennessy will join us right

Democrats release transcript of Pentagon official's testimony

"Have some breaking news on the impeachment inquiry. Another transcript of testimony from top trump official has has just been released. Laura Cooper is this official. She was a top career. Pentagon official overseeing Ukraine policy. I want to get straight to Capitol Hill C. N. N.'s. Phil Mattingly. Is There Phil. What if he found so far daily? There's a couple of pieces of this testimony. They're very interesting. I you'll remember Laura Cooper because she was actually the official who is waiting to testify. Several Republican Republican House members actually stormed the compartmentalize the skiff as they called the classified information room in an effort to try and what they thought was unveiled testimony. Simoni that was taking place behind closed doors. Spent more time in fact waiting for those Republicans leave testifying itself but when she actually got down to testify a couple of elements here that I think are worth focusing one. She has on the ground details of what was happening inside. The government as the security assistance to Ukraine was withheld. She laid out very clearly. The concerns inside the Pentagon. This assistance was considered integral for Ukraine. She was helping to oversee Ukrainian peace negotiations with Russia. How important it was for the posture of those negotiations for the security assistance? Go through there. There's also the possibility of the fact that given Congress had allocated this assistance the fact that it was being held and was not being sent out may in fact have been illegal and that was a concern people the Pentagon might have as well. But there's also one more piece and I think this is very important because much of this testimony is very technocratic. How funding is dispersed? How the Pentagon was reacting here? This is different on August August twentieth. Laura Cooper details in meeting that she had within special assistant to Ukraine. Kurt Volker now former about the funding assistance. She said this meeting is not necessarily out of the ordinary she would meet with them strategize given her role overseeing Ukraine policy in his role inside the country but part of that meeting where they discussed the security assistance and how to Get it freed was this. This is a quote in that meeting. He did mention something to me. That you know was the first about somehow an effort that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the that the government of Ukraine would make that would somehow disavow any interference in US elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individuals involved in election interference and that was about as specific as it got the questioner. Then ask okay. Did he indicate to you that if that channel he was working on with successful it might lift the issue. As in. Let the aide go forward lower cooper responds. John's yes now. Here's the context their data. If you've been reading through these transcripts. I know you've been reading them. I've been reading them. That statement was discussed at nauseam throughout through the irregular channel. Is People Apple called it with regards to Ukraine. The efforts from some in the administration to push presidents Alinsky and his top advisers to release a statement a public statement. That would be read by Alinsky. That would talk about opening investigations into bereavement into Hunter Biden and also 2016 allegations unsubstantiated allegations into election meddling that is now mentioned.

Phil what will Democrats do with this new power? And how concern should the president the wolf for all the history and barriers broken for all the pomp and circumstance you could see members in their families lined up behind me heading into statuary hall for reception. There is a new reality. And that's with democratic power comes the new level of oversight new level of subpoena power that the Trump administration simply has not had to deal with for their first two years in office. And with that Democrats pledge a lot of work in the days in weeks and months ahead, something new speaker Nancy Pelosi alluded to on the floor and nation is in stark moment, two months ago. The American people spoke and demanded a new dawn they called upon the beauty of our constitution. Our system of checks and balances that protects our democracy remembering that the legislative branch. Which is article one the first branch of government co equal to the presidency and to the judiciary. And wolf Democrats plan to deploy those checks and balances and the subpoena power that comes with them in spades targeting cabinet officials targeting the White House targeting the president's own business interest in the weeks and months ahead. Obviously hanging over all of this is the continued conversation inside the new democratic caucus about how far they want to go. It's an issue democratic leaders have largely batted away over the course of the last couple of months. This is how now speaker Nancy Pelosi addressed impeachment issue earlier today, we have to wait and see what happens with the Muller report. We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't void impeachment for political reasons. So we'll just have to see how it comes. And the key. I'm hearing repeatedly from democratic members and senior staffers wolf is that they want to wait until Robert Mueller, the special counsel puts out his report before they decide or pledge to do anything. But the reality is in certainly on the table, if it's merited we'll have to see if it's married and Democrats minds in the months ahead. Kill the government shutdown now approaching the two week.

"Before election results. Start rolling in new CNN polls. May may give us an early indication of what we might see you tomorrow night. Let's bring in CNN's Phil Mattingly until start with a new poll for generic congressional ballot. Now, obviously polls didn't quite hold true in two thousand sixteen but history might back up the results of this one. Yeah. And I think what we're looking at right now is a clear democratic advantage. You look at the new CNS SRS poll today had Democrats on a generic ballot leading by thirteen points. That's a sizable number you want to go back to two thousand ten where there's a Republican wave Republicans were up by about ten or eleven points within the margin of error here. Now, there's other polls the NBC's Wall Street Journal poll Washington Post have it around seven there's a difference here. That matters if it's at around seven Democrats can probably still win the house potential problems over the Senate, if it's thirteen you're talking about a potential wave type of issue what I'm being told right now is it somewhere in the middle there. But you can see the numbers clearly give Democrats say advantage. The question now is what kind of advantage will they have going into tomorrow night. How much of this vote is about President Trump? You know, the interesting thing will. We pulled through our poll was first off look at the top line approval ratings right now a poll of polls, this is all of our polls together, CNN and other entities as well. Forty three percent approval rating this raises alarm bells if you're a Republican going into this one of the things that made Republicans start to feel a little bit more comfortable a couple of weeks ago was that this number started tick up to forty five forty six that matters, particularly in some of those house suburban district white collar district's forty three percent. That's a warning sign, particularly if it continues to drop take a look historically at what we're looking at here, you go through past presidents, and where they were going into midterms. Traditionally I term presidents their first mid term they going to take a hit you have two thousand ten President Obama got wiped out where was he sitting right around forty six on the area. Where president is now a little bit higher Bill Clinton in one thousand nine hundred four another fifty plus seat wipe out forty six percent is well I'm old enough to remember both of these nights, by the way, they were around were alive. Covering twenty. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. But you see these numbers do have a direct correlation. I think that's why people are keyed in on these right now. Okay. And so when the polls start closing and the votes are coming in. What are you going to be looking at which house raise the things that are actually important? And that's when people actually start voting there's a couple of barometers that I'm paying attention to early on in the night in the first goes right down here Kentucky six district right here. When you look at this. This is a race Andy bar one by twenty one plus points back in two thousand sixteen this shouldn't technically be a close race except for Amy McGrath is a top tier democratic candidate raise millions of dollars have the type of bio as a retired fighter pilot that Democrats seized on. This is one of the first race. We'll start seeing returns on earlier in the night pay attention to this as a sign of what might becoming later. I wanna move over a little bit into Virginia. Now, there's some clear there's one clear pickup in Virginia. But there's another race that I'm ki and we talk about toss up races here..

Look, I think one of the one of the issues that senators have been trying to figure out is if this is all to be kept private if this is all to be kept only to a small group of technically one hundred nine people who would have access to it. How will you ever be able to prove it exonerated breath Cavanaugh or approved Christine Blasi four, correct? Or any of those things? The only the best metric I've been given up to this point is if they get fifty plus votes than there wasn't anything that was too damning to Brookhaven.

Yes, over the course of the last couple of days than perhaps other senators, the Democrats, I think are close attention to whether or not Republicans can get fifty on their own. I think in talking to Republicans who have been involved in this process and been involved in the process before their expectation is things probably end up muddle, they end up no different than they were when they got sworn statements from various witnesses, no different than they were when they had the hearing. We're basically. One side feels one way very strongly the other side feels one way very strongly and Republicans particularly on the leadership level believe that'll be enough to get Brett Cavanaugh over the finish line. Again. We don't know what's actually in this. We know they interviewed probably nine or ten people the F B I filing. Those interview transcripts so anything could be in those reports, but I can tell you from talking to Republicans who very supportive of the cabinet nomination, their expectation has long been this checks box and allows them to move forward. There is no expectation. There's going to be anything damning in there that said they don't know what's in there yet. Thanks, Phil Mattingly on Capitol Hill.

"That has amac dot US the association of mature American citizens. Okay. Breaking news. The White House has confirmed according to congressional correspondent Phil Mattingly of CNN. The White House has confirmed that President Trump will authorize an order a supplemental F B I background check into Brad Kavanagh. Now. This was what the Democrats had wanted basically again. And again, and again, and again, I do not understand why there is so much faith in the FBI. Oh, they'll be able to figure out. Exactly what happened. Exactly what happened in an unidentified home somewhere in Maryland in somewhere sometime within a three month period in one thousand nine hundred eighty two between two high schoolers ones have one fifteen. As as people said yesterday on the Republican side is judge Cavanaugh said again, and again, he has no objection to such a background check because he has nothing to hide. But the idea that the FBI will come across and say, oh, yes, you should now approve judge cavenaugh, or this is what basically they'll tell you what they found and if they found any additional evidence either to undermine or to corroborate Christina Blasi Ford's testimony. Well, then fine. This is now been supported by pretty much everybody. The entire Senate Judiciary committee has voted to to make this request. President Trump's of course, he's going to heed the request and we can move forward. I think that is good news. Let's go to your calls and to Paul in Monterey. California. Paul you're on the Michael Medved Show. Yes. Michael so much of the consternation is due to the purported confidence of Dr Ford and her position. But right toward the end of the questioning yesterday, Rachel Mitchell who was a sexual assault. Prosecutor started a line of questioning with Dr Ford who is a psychologist as to whether or not she was familiar with. How a forensic psychology psychological evaluation is done to a perspective sexual assault. Victim in preparation for a trial and in the didn't bitter. There wasn't enough time to go anywhere with that. But I think what it did was succeed in putting into question, whatever, psychological or therapeutic process. Dr Ford used to come to the position that Kavanagh's her attacker. I I do think this is is really the questionable aspect, which is why it was. So so telling the question for her was the level of her certainty that it was Brad Cavanaugh who? Pinned her to the bed and tried to remove her clothes tried. But let us repeat failed one things that bothers me today is the way that people can flayed any kind of sexual assault with rape today. When there were a number of protesters who corner Jeff flake in an elevator. They were holding the elevator. And they were b rating. Definitely do this women women will be I don't even know what the accent was. But it was a lady with an accent. And she said, here's a man was violated a young girl. Okay. I mean, this is like defining blackout. How do you define violated? A usually when you use the term violated in means something even worse than what Dr blassie Ford, allegedly experienced. And by the way, I agree with with Frank. Buckley was saying what others have said. I I have no doubt that she had some kind of. Devastating. Encounter when she was fifteen years old, and I feel terrible for her. But I have very very very big doubts that it was Brad Kavanagh who did it because I believe he was equally persuasive in equally assured and the evidence goes to support his point of view. Let's go to Claudia and Olympia Washington. Claudia you're on the Michael Medved Show. Hi, you said earlier that there is no if no one else is appointed to the supreme court, and it's a four four tie that all the cases would go back to the lower court, and their verdict would stand does that mean that would stand forever, and there's no going back to them. And how many case it could go to the lower chord since go back into sessions. Here's here's here's the biggest danger, and you can see this on like some of the gay marriage cases is the circuit court of appeals court of appeals often don't agree with each other. You'll get a different judgment from the third circuit is from the ninth circuit. And so that what you would have would be no final decision, and it would be a mess. It would it would completely undermine the value of of even having a supreme court now, by the way, this is an absolute worst case scenario. This will not happen as long as Republicans control the Senate, which is why it is so crucial to support. Josh holy in Missouri. He is now standing candidate really really really good guy.

"That has amac dot US the association of mature American citizens. Okay. Breaking news. The White House has confirmed according to congressional correspondent Phil Mattingly of CNN. The White House has confirmed that President Trump will authorize an order a supplemental F B I background check into Brad Kavanagh. Now. This was what the Democrats had wanted basically again, and again again, and again, I I do not understand why there is so much faith in the FBI. Oh, they'll be able to figure out. Exactly what happened. Exactly what happened in an unidentified home somewhere in Maryland in somewhere sometime within a three month period in one thousand nine hundred eighty two between two high schoolers ones have one fifteen. As as people said yesterday on the Republican side has judge Cavanaugh said again, and again, he has no objection to such a background check because he has nothing to hide. But the idea that the FBI will come across and say, oh, yes, you should now approve judge Cavanaugh, or this is what basically they'll tell you what they found and if they found any additional evidence either to undermine or to corroborate Christina blassie Ford's testimony. Well, then fine. This is now been supported by pretty much everybody. The entire Senate Judiciary committee has voted to to make this request of President Trump's of course, he's going to heed the request and we can move forward. I think that is good news. Let's go to your calls and to Paul in Monterey. California. Paul you're on the Michael Medved Show. Yes. Michael so much of the consternation is due to that the purported confidence of Dr Ford in her position. But right toward the end of the questioning yesterday, Rachel Mitchell who is a sexual assault. Prosecutor started a line of questioning with Dr Ford who is a psychologist as to whether or not she was familiar with. How a forensic psychology psychological evaluation is done to a perspective sexual assault. Victim in preparation for a trial and in the didn't bitter. There wasn't enough time to go anywhere with that. But I think what it did was succeed in putting into question, whatever, psychological or therapeutic process. Dr Ford used to come to the position that Kavanagh's her attacker. I I do think this is is really the questionable aspect, which is why it was. So so telling the question for her was the level of her certainty that it was Brad Kavanagh who? Pinned her to the bed and tried to remove her clothes tried. But let us repeat failed one things that bothers me today is the way that people can flayed any kind of sexual assault with rape today. When there were a number of protesters who corner Jeff flake in an elevator. They were holding the elevator. And they were b rating. Definitely do this women women will be I don't even know what the accent was. But it was a lady with an accent. And she said, here's a man was violated a young girl. Okay. I mean, this is like defining blackout. How do you define violated? A usually when you use the term violated in means something even worse than what Dr blassie Ford, allegedly experienced. And by the way, I agree with with. But Frank Buckley was saying, and what others have said, I I have no doubt that she had some kind of. Devastating. Encounter when she was fifteen years old, and I feel terrible for her. But I have very very very big doubts that it was Brad Kavanagh who did it because I believe he was equally persuasive and equally assured and the evidence goes to support his point of view. Let's go to Claudia in Olympia, Washington, cloudy, you're on the Michael Medved Show. Hi, you said earlier that there is no if no one else is appointed to the supreme court, and it's a four four tie. All the cases would go back to the lower court, and their verdict would stand does that mean that would stand forever, and there's no going back to them. And how many case it could go to the lower chord since go back into session. Here's here's here's the biggest danger, and you can see this on some of the gay marriage cases is the circuit court of appeals court of appeals often don't agree with each other. You'll get a different judgment from the third circuit is from the ninth circuit. And so. That what you would have would be no final decision, and it would be a mess. It would it would completely undermine the value of of even having a supreme court now, by the way, this is an absolute worst case scenario. This will not happen as long as Republicans control the Senate, which is why it is so crucial to support. Josh holy in Missouri. He is now standing candidate really really really good guy. I've spoken to his law school professors at Yale. And this is one of the brightest students. He a law school has ever produced, and he will join people like Samuel Alito who is also a Yale Law. Graduate will welcome. Josh holy in Washington. DC's not up for the supreme court yet. He's up for the US Senate, but preferring him to Claire mccaskill it's also crucial because it is very likely that President Trump will get another supreme court nominee after after Brett Cavanaugh is confirmed.
