Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major.

Now very state Pompeo at a press conference yesterday, and he got asked whether the director of National Intelligence John Radcliffe, you may have seen with Christopher Ray last night denouncing the Iranian attempt. To interfere with our election and the Russian attempt interfere with our election. They've got ahold of voter registration data, and they're sending people fake e mails. Don't believe anything in your inbox there, hacking They aren't getting your vote. But they're telling you terrible stuff in your email. Don't believe stuff That sounds crazy. Double triple check it. It's like Paul's letter to the brains, but Mike Pompeo Talked yesterday about the hunter Biden emails and he said this cut number nine You know when I was a C I A director always preferred that people defer to the Intelligence committee about matters best known to them. I thought the Iraq Cliff statement, have every reason to believe he's got it exactly right. Well. So much. Another political issue, It seems, is the email search for Hillary Clinton's emails, and we're just wondering what Are those e mails that you're looking for? Who is releasing them? And when they'll be released? You said before with B before the election. What it says is we continue to do the work that we have done for awfully long time and well. Reduce them when they are prepared to be produced with. I think it's like 17,000 Manassas question. And I give you the same answer. I gave the previous 16. When they're ready to be produced. Good for Mike, The secretary of state is just straightforward. Good for him. A couple more quotes from Donald Trump in North Carolina last night because the emails referenced the 100 Million emails reference. A big guy Donald Trump picks up on that cut 24. Another email reference 10% held by Hunter for the big guy with the big guy was big. He doesn't look so big to me. He doesn't look so big when he walks on the stage is not looking too strong. Fragile, very fragile, But the bigger they come the big guy. The big guy. Whether or not it's under Biden today, I will have a washing post op ed calling for the appointment of a special counsel. I want it done before the election for this reason. If you have a special counsel pointed after the election, and President Trump wins reelection, it will look like revenge politics. If there is no special counsel, and nothing happens with either Durham or 100 by an e mails, it will look like two systems of justice. I do not like special counsels.

Trump set to miss required deadline for 2021 refugee quota.

"Trump administration appears to be ignoring a deadline to establish how many refugees will be allowed into the United States next year raising uncertainty about the future of the forty year old resettlement program that has been dwindling under his administration. The Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty Refugee Act requires presidents to issue that determination before October first the start of the fiscal year. With only hours to go on Wednesday, the trump administration had not sheduled consultations with Congress that required before setting the annual figure. There was no immediate comment from the White House, which usually announces the target numbers or the departments of State or Homeland Security which were involved in making the determination. Democratic lawmakers blasted the administration for not meeting its obligation. Trump's violation of the nineteen eighty law will bring our refugee admissions program to a halt leaving thousands stranded abroad with their lives at risk New York representatives Jerry Nadler, who is chairman of the House Judiciary? Committee? Trump froze this year's admissions in March falsely citing a needs to protect American jobs as fall-outs from the corona virus crashed the economy. Advocates fear the government is intentionally delaying its plans for the twenty twenty one fiscal year as a way to eventually eliminate the refugee program. No more refugees can be admitted after Thursday until the president sets the ceiling for the New Year Secretary of State Mike. Pompeo said the administration is committed to the country's history of leading the world in providing a safe place for refugees. But advocates say the government's actions do not show that in addition the State Department announced last week it would no longer provide some statistical information on refugee resettlement sparking more concerns advocates say the trump administration is dismantling a program that has long enjoyed bipartisan support and has been considered a model for protecting the world's most vulnerable people.

I'm Carol Hills. This is the world we start the show in. Sudan. U. S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with the head of Sudan's ruling council in Khartoum. Today Pompeo an Fattah Alberta Hahn took off their masks to post for photos but didn't take questions. The visit is part of a bid to normalize relations with Israel as Sudan transitions to democratic rule Cameron Hudson is a former chief of staff to the US special envoy to Sudan. Cameron the US trying to foster stronger ties between Sudan and Israel as the country's shifts to civilian rule after decades under President Omar Al-Bashir. Students government spokesman said the current transitional leaders have no mandate to normalize ties with Israel. What do you make of that statement? Well what acres that there is some confusion within the Sudan transitional government right now, the state of Israel reached out early on in this year in February two military leaders, and the conversation between Sudan and Israel has largely been through security channels up to this point now that it's got nothing a little more advanced, I think Secretary Pompeo is trying to move that conversation into a front channel diplomatic conversation and I'm not quite sure that the civilian leaders in Sudan were as prepared as they needed to be to feel discussion about whether or not see Dan might establish normalized diplomatic relations with Israel. One issue for Sudan is that it's on the US's list as a state sponsor of terror, and I know that Sudanese prime minister, Abdullah dot met with Pompeo to raise that issue, what does it have to do to get off that list? Well there's a set of statutory requirements which frankly Sudan has met or largely met to get off the list namely that renounce international terrorism and demonstrate that it hasn't supported international terrorism. In the past six months, we have placed an additional requirement that they settle all terrorism related lawsuits by US citizens, and so it has been for the past year or so negotiating an out of court settlement with the victims of the USS Cole bombing and the victims of the US embassy bombings which Sudan was found. Culpable of in US courts, there's a deal to be struck here though I think Sudan is very interested in getting off the terrorism list as quickly as it possibly can. It's running headlong into a US election calendar right now where I think the trump administration is looking for some foreign policy wins that it can take forward into the election and I think it sees now Sudan as fitting kind of neatly into a broader narrative of Middle East peace of that it's trying to claim in the region. If served at the US mission in Sudan a decade ago when ex-president Omar Marlboro share was still in power. Have you been back since I have? Yes I was there during the revolution last year and since to meet with the transitional government and many of the people who brought the transitional government in and it's a sea change I mean it's a it's a complete one, eighty I think. People walk the streets and you feel a sense of exuberance and optimism among the people even though there's a a punishing economic situation in the country right now you know things are not all fixed in Sudan government is having to undo three years of corruption and autocratic rule. So that takes time but what has immediately moved in to fill that void. That vacuum is a sense of optimism about the future a sense that Sudan can rebuild that it can turn the country around and that all the sins of the past can be moved beyond Cameron Hudson is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's Africa Center and former chief-of-staff to the special envoy to.

"But I guarantee you that once they had that precedent of compelling companies to go along with this they will a guy like bill and his Justice Department will stop nowhere in wanting to get into people's phones. It is not worth the cost of people's privacy and civil liberties for the additional convenience for investigators have an easier way into people's funds yes Let's talk about Mike Pompeo for a bit so late last Friday night. President trump fired a guy named Steve Clinic. Whose State Department Inspector General in the latest Loyalty perk that's happening across the government so for listeners. Inspector General is supposed to be an internal watchdog within the executive branch within the agencies. They are political appointees but they operate independently. They often get tips from whistleblowers about corruption or mistakes from mismanagement and they're supposed to work with the agencies and with Congress to investigate the incident and then make them public it's a position that was created after Watergate as part of those reforms so recently trump has just been systematically removing these I G at criticize him and replacing them with in this case we know that Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo asked trump to fire Olympic. The State Department I G so POMPEO did interview with the Washington Post. He said that Lennox work with somehow undermining the mission of the department but he didn't explain how trump was later asset a press event why he fired clinic and he said. I don't know I don't know anything about him. So really a compelling. So ben here's some possible reasons pump hale may have wanted him fired first. Win was reportedly investigating whether Peyot had improperly used State Department staff to. Do you know personal errands. Like pick up his food or dry cleaning or like his dog at the groomer literally the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman. Eliot Engel said he had asked clinic the I G to investigate whether POMPEO had improperly sold billions of dollars with a weapons to guess who the Saudis. So we're going to buy one. But regardless I mean trump is required to notify congress about the removal of an I g and provide a detailed justification for it and has not yet done so so then. Let's there with the allegation. That POMPEO was asking staffed. Just do personal errands for him because some people might hear that in think like what's the big deal. He's a busy guy. Lots of people ask their assistant to make a reservation at a restaurant or whatever the issue is when you're talking about any federal employees it is illegal so it's a big deal. A whistle blower told Congress that POMPEO's diplomatic security agents call themselves ubereats with guns because they're constantly asked to pick up. Mike takeout orders on Monday. Trump was asked about these allegations. He said quote. I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than having washed dishes because maybe his wife isn't there so just bringing some blatant sexism into it bringing the patriarchy yeah This also dovetails with broader criticism that we've talked about before that. Pompeii was misused. State Department resources by taking three official quote Unquote State Department trips to Kansas. When he was considering a run for a Senate seat there so then you know two questions about this piece of the story. How big a deal do you think these allegations are in? And why do you think Pompeo seems to be able to whether these kinds of abuse of power allegations when other cabinet officials have been fired pretty quickly? Well first of all just the fact that you would remove the inspector general because the person who runs the State Department doesn't like it kind of runs completely counter to the spirit of having inspectors general like the people who get investigated. Don't get to decide that they no longer would like to be investigated I look. I think that there's a clearly at an issue of of Pompeo essentially kind of personalizing the use of State Department resources. That is troubling. Look any any buddy who runs. The State Department has the basic tension of the fact that they're they're running a large sprawling government department not unlike the Pentagon although not as big with mostly career people career civil servants and farm servants. And they're supposed to be a line between you know someone's personal or political interest and what that large department is doing and with pompeo. Everybody can focus on the streets with guns. I think it's the broad pattern. Essentially of he's using all these different resources to fly himself to Kansas or taking his family on trips. Or Yeah maybe having. These people do errands for him. I don't think that's the issue here. In fact I think pompeo wants to make that the issue. He tweeted some picture of himself with his dog is much more dangerous and unethical behavior. That was likely being investigated and POMPEO. Trump would be happy to have a good old argument about whether or not. It's okay for you. Know some diplomatic security agents to pick up dry cleaning from Tayo and complain about liberal bed. Who Don't like that I so so I think it's problematic but actually don't think it's the core issue here and I think the frankly Pompeii or would rather have an argument about whether people walked his dog then have an argument about whether he basically broke the law to expedite billions of dollars in weapons deliveries to Saudi Arabia over the objections of Congress. So let's talk about the Saudi thing then so I agree with you like the Saudi arms dealer issue is much bigger deal so here. Here's a quick story. Last year POMPEO was working on a deal to sell eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia in the UA. But there was bipartisan opposition to the Saudi peace of that sale because they had just murdered a journalist named Jamal Kashogi and because the Saudi led war in Yemen had become a humanitarian disaster and these arms were probably destined for that theater of war so by Lottie executive branches required to give Congress thirty days notice about their intent to sell arms to a foreign country during that time. Congress can block the sale. So what Pompeo did you reference was really shady. He declared a national emergency which allowed him to skip the congressional review process and fast track these arm sales so he claimed the emergency was a threat from Iran. But you the way you know that's bullshit because some of these weapons weren't even ready to be delivered for a year so some emergency there so now. I'm no expert in arm sales but some experts. I read suggested he might have broken a couple of law. So I there's the Arms Export Control Act two pieces of that I. He went around Congress which is legal in second. You have to ensure that the arms are for legitimate self-defense reasons and it's not clear that they were also may have violated the Foreign Assistance Act. Which says you can't sell arms to a country to be human rights abuser and there was this big piece in the Times over the weekend. But how jared Kushner and like a right wing you know White House Economic Advisor named Peter Navarro have been pushing arm sales as just solely jobs program right like these guys have no foreign policy experience interest in you humanitarian or diplomatic impact. It's just about like the defense industry and Mark Asper. The Secretary of defense is a raytheon former raytheon lobbyists so then Obama oversaw a lot of foreign military sales right including so the Saudis. The Times piece noted that Obama average thirty six billion a year in arms sales during his second term trump has averaged fifty one billion a year. So it's huge increase so like you know back to what you're getting Alec. How big a deal do you think this emergency declaration is by Pompeo? Is that end run around Congress and then how is this arms sale process supposed to work so I imagine you were in a ton of meetings where these were considered and vetted and either approved or not? Well yeah first of all. I think there's normally supposed to be a process right. Where essentially the State Department has to license an arms deal Going forward right and this can be in. Many cases can be a fairly routine exercise. Right where Defense contractors or you know working with foreign governments and then the State Department is licensing and arm sale. It's notified to Congress. Congress has a period to raise some objections. If there are foreign policy considerations that come into play then this might get discussed in the situation room. Sometimes there weren't sometimes this routine but for a relationship like Saudi Arabia and certainly with like a hot button issue like Yemen. It's a kind of thing that would go through an interagency discussion process. Should this go forward but then it still has to be licensed by the State Department and notified to Congress. What is so notable here? Right is is first of all. They've gotten rid of any pretense that this is anything but a corrupt enterprise in the sense at Raytheon depends on Saudi Arabia for a significant chunk of its business. The former top lobbyist at Raytheon is now the secretary of Defense of the United States. Donald trump when asked about Saudi behavior like the killing of Jamal Kashogi or the killing of tens of thousands of civilians in Yemen consistently says well they're giving us a lot of money so they're not you know they're not hiding the basically the priority here is the Saudis write checks and their sell them weapons and if those weapons are used to kill children and innocent civilians they could care less what what this introduces the further point. Though that they basically blown up the process including the legal process. They're supposed to go through. And so you have a situation where trump is ignored repeated and veto repeated congressional efforts to stop these arm sales to Yemen then. He ignored the requirement to even notify. Congress anticipating the objections he get and essentially trumped up a fake emergency. Because there's no emergency today. The situation in Yemen situation with Iran has basically been an escalating mass for years. There's not any reason that this is now. Suddenly an emergency. The only reason to do that would be to avoid that congressional scrutiny and it just sounds like since. Pompeo took over the State Department. They've got into the State Department's normal process of reviewing these things so we we have the fact that there's a fundamentally corrupted relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia. We have the fact now that they are basically ignoring any kind of process that they are supposed to go through their legally compelled to go through in order to move forward with an arm sale. And it makes you wonder what might inspector general discover if he started poking around? What kinds of conversations has Mike Pompeo had with people? Where does he directed people to do? Has He directed people to violate laws or protocols? What possible corruption might there be between trump officials and the Saudis? You know what is happening. Is there a whistle blower who might have some awareness of the corruption between a jared Kushner or Mike pompeo and the Saudi government? Because the the the hard truth is no matter. What the Saudis do no matter? How bad this war in. Yemen goes the arms sales just keep increasing and no matter what the congressional scrutiny right so clearly. Pompeo minimus flouting what he should have been doing as normal process and notifying congress. The question is just how nefarious it goes. Yeah we have not heard the end of this story. I mean it sounds like this spectre general might have been at the very end of his work on this exact investigation into this arm sale. So I'm glad that angle is is sounding the alarm. Hopefully we learn more information soon. Because you know that's a big problem. Yeah and look angles been pretty cautious member of Congress. I would frankly like to see him. Be More aggressive about these things. I'm glad he's doing this but you know like this is. This is one of the biggest unanswered questions of the trump presidency. Just what is going on between them and the Saudis is there. Money involved is a real estate dealings involved. Are there promises about a post-presidency windfall for the trump family involved? What the Hell is going on? Because it is not in America's interest to be shoveling these weapons out the door to a country that is using them to bomb Yemen into smithereens. Kill all these innocent civilians and not achieve any of their stated objectives with respect Uranian influence..

Where have you seen that or well? Mike Pompeo is someone who who seems in many ways ill suited for the world of diplomacy in part because he regularly seems to view the world with a very dark lens that there are very bad people out there trying to do harm. I'm to the United States and that he's speaks about this in the past in terms of you know the threat from Muslim and Islamic extremists from countries like Iran. That want to hurt the United States in his view and in many ways You know tries to bring in some of his martial rhetoric from his days in the army and in the CIA to the State Department target. He's referred to the State Department diplomats as his warriors which is a phrase that just makes State Department employees. You know it's like nails on the chalkboard. They recoil from phrases like that and he Is someone who does not when he goes out on the world stage to speak.

"pompeo" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC

"Hey everyone I'm Dave challen the CNN political director and this is the daily DC. Thanks so much for listening today on the podcast Pun Peyot in the spotlight Donald Trump's secretary of state reversed course today and decided to make clear for everyone everyone to know in his own words that he was indeed on the July twenty fifth phone call that President Trump was having with Ukrainian president Zielinski Alinsky. This is the phone call at the heart of the impeachment inquiry going on in the House of Representatives because Donald Trump was asking the Ukrainian Ukrainian president to investigate his potential political rival in the twenty twenty election Joe Biden and his family his son hunter. I want you to hear the secretary every State Pompeo today while traveling abroad he had a news conference in Rome and I want you to hear how he answered the question about about the phone call and which he is at the center of now in many ways because not only was he on the call but he is also responding to requests from Congress for Word Document production and State Department testimony in which he wrote a letter to the House of Representatives to the House Democrats saying this was bullying and intimidation mutation and that he wasn't going to comply with all of these requests and he needed more time so not only was he on the call but he also is proving to be we sort of the first battleground of the impeachment inquiry in terms of a real engaged adversarial relationship here here between the executive branch and the legislative branch in this impeachment matter. This is the first pushback official capacity pushback back from the administration about what the House is requesting but first. I want you to hear Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo in Rome today when asked about the now infamous July twenty fifth trump Zielinski phone call this relates to the Ukraine situation in what's going on on the hill first of all. Is it correct that you were on the phone. Call that president trump had with president is Alinsky on July twenty fifth and if so are the accounts that we've all seen of it including the transcript or partial transcript released by the White House accurate and complete and if you were on the call. Did you hear anything on that. In the conversation that raised a red flag anything inappropriate or anything that gave you any concerns and then secondly as for was on the phone call was on the phone call the phone on call was in the context of now been secretary of State for coming on a year and a half. I know precisely what the American policy with respect to you crank frank. It's been remarkably consistent and we will continue to try to drive those set of outcomes. It's what our team included. Including embassador Volcker or focused on was taking down a threat that Russia poses there in Ukraine it was about helping the Ukrainians to get graft out and corruption outside of their government and to help now this new government in the Ukraine and build a successful thriving economies what the State Department officials that I had the privilege to lead have been engaged in this what we will continue to do even while all this noise is going on now. That sounds a lot different than how Mike Pompeo sounded ten days ago. Remember the phone call that he was on an aware of the details because he was on it and heard it all was July twenty fifth ten days ago Martha Raddatz on ABC News is this week asked Pompeo ao about the call and he chose to completely dodge her question about his knowledge of the call and instead just punt in say she read Adema Wall Street Journal story about a whistle blower complaint neither of which he had read any left there talk about ally of mission he did not do what he did now ten days later admit and own up to the fact and go public with the fact that he was on the call here was Pompeo just ten days ago and I want to turn to this whistleblower complaint. Mister secretary the complained involving the president and a phone call with the four and leader to the director of National Intelligence Inspector Inspector General. That's where the complaint was lodged by the whistleblower. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that president trump pressed the president of Ukraine eight times to work work with Rudy Giuliani to investigate Joe Biden son. What do you know about those conversations so you just gave me a report about a I see whistleblower campaign none of which I've seen I can tell you about this administration's policy but let me let me let me ask you this question in Ukrainian presidential readout of the convers conversation said they discussed quote investigation of corruption cases which inhibited the interaction between Ukraine Crane and the US say the President tweeted Saturday. It was perfectly fine and respectful conversation. Do you think it's perfectly fine to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political opponent. I think I saw statement from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry. I said there was no pressure applied in the course of the conversation and there's there's one more reason why Mike Pompeo his State Department is at the very center of today's impeachment inquiry developments and that is because somebody who operates independently from Pompeo at the State Department the Inspector General there is up on Capitol Hill today I think the three o'clock pm eastern our to brief several committees and as you know most of congress is out on recess. This will be mostly to staff behind closed is doors. I just want you to hear the language in the State Department. I jeez request for this briefing. Steve Lynch is the State Department I g he asked asked for an urgent briefing and he made it clear that this was related to the Ukraine matter her he according to the letter sent to the hill yesterday wants to quote provide staff with copies of documents related to the State Department and and Ukraine. This is an urgent briefing now. One Congressional aide described this request as quote highly unusual unusual and cryptically word it now. We have no idea this is the big mystery of the day. We have no idea what it is. The State Department Inspector General wants to tell Congress what was urgent and related to the State Department in Ukraine that he felt the need that these congressional committees needed to know urgently and and see these documents. We have no idea if this is something that is going to bolster the president's case in his defense against what House Democrats are seeking or or if this is going to add to the pile of evidence that House Democrats are already massing impeachment inquiry. What we do know is that he's going up there to break so we we will hopefully learn after the facts into will happen behind closed doors but we will hopefully learn the crux of what the inspector general needed to go up there so urgently an informed the committee so Mike Pompeo and his State Department is at the very core of this. We're going to hear tomorrow from Kurt Volcker the former former special envoy to Ukraine who resigned last week. Did he resign from pressure to do so. Is this somebody who when he arranged for Rudy Giuliani to meet Ukrainian counterparts did he have full knowledge of the request for investigation into the Biden's as part of that or not this is going to being a key witness to understand sort of the Giuliani connection to all of this since he seems to be the intermediary that that was able to connect Giuliani on the Ukrainians and just what Volker knew how much he understood what Donald Trump was interested in which he made abundantly clear in that ally twenty-fifth phone call which by the way did not match a national security administration posture about Ukraine the way that Mike Pompeo described it in Rome today today. If you just read the transcript just read the transcript that the White House put out you see the Donald Trump's mission in that phone call was twofold he wanted to get the Ukrainian president to work with Bill Bar and investigate this conspiracy theory that the Ukrainians hacked into the DNC and that it was to help Hillary Clinton versus Russians interfering with the election to help donald trump that was the basis of the Mueller probe and Donald Trump wants to up and that and so one he was looking backwards to the two thousand sixteen election to test and get information on this theory that there is a server in Ukraine that the hack started in Ukraine and that it was really all that on behalf of the Clinton campaign and to he wanted dirt on Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden and hunters role on the board of an energy company that it was doing business in Ukraine so that's pretty clear what Donald Trump wanted on July twenty fifth phone. Call just read the transcript. That's not how Mike Pompeo was portraying it but this initial skirmish of Mike pompeo resisting certain State Department officials or documents from being produced under subpoena from from the House. This is the beginning of a long battle back and forth between the House Democrats and the administration as they pursued this impeachment inquiry and and Mike Pompeo is now catching up with the record and the reporting that is out there so that he can get on the record and say yes indeed he was on that call so that he can get square with all the facts before he is deeper into this as some house. Democrats have pointed out. He actually may be a fact win this in this. Mike Pompeo clearly early playing the role of the loyal lieutenant to the president he serves. There's no indication that he is looking in some way to separate himself from the the president on this matter yet no indication of that but he's also clearly trying to get in a place where he can serve as that loyal soldier while also so sticking to a fact pattern that he can back up and having no knowledge of the call was not a fact pattern he could back up because he was on the call as he admitted today that does it for this edition of the daily. Thank you all so much for listening hope. You'll tune in again right here tomorrow. Are you interested in learning how great companies grow.

"This inspector general also says that these documents relate to the State Department and Ukraine. That's what we know beyond that. We don't know anything I I should also point out that the timing here is unusual and interesting congress is on recess right now. Most members of Congress are home in their districts so for the inspector general well to come forward and say hey eight members eight committees of Congress. I need to brief you on this stuff urgently right now coming to the hill tomorrow. This has to be an urgent enough matter sadder according to the Inspector General that he believes it can't wait until all the members of Congress returned back to Capitol Hill after the recess is over so in any case. This is going to happen tomorrow. Even though Congress is on recess if you are a member of Congress or senator and you're on one of these eight committees in the House of the Senate has been notified today with the surprise announcement from the Inspector General that he needs to talk to you immediately. If you're one of the people on those committees call your office. I know your home but it sounds like you might unexpectedly have to be at work tomorrow. One senator who sits on both the Foreign Relations Committee and the Appropriations Committee is going to be joining us in a moment. Maybe we can figure out a little bit more about what's going on here from him but this was an unexpected twist in this story today and it comes at a time when the head of the State Department when Secretary of State Mike pompeo is sort of sizzling very hot and very unflattering spotlight last night we got the revelation that was first reported in the Wall Street Journal that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was actually on the call. He was listening in on the call all for which president trump is now going to be impeached. It's that call to Ukraine where president trump asked that country's government for help against his potential Angel Democratic opponent in the next election. He's going to be impeached for that Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo was listening in on that call. We learned that last night it was first reported in the wall all Street Journal after we learned that last night this morning secretary of State Mike Pompeo sent a letter to house Democrats basically telling them to bug off in their investigation Gatien. The House had announced plans to depose several State Department officials who are potential witnesses to what's been going on between the president and Ukraine witnesses is in this now ongoing impeachment proceeding against the President Secretary of state. POMPEO's letter today essentially threatened Congress that he might not allow those State Department officials and State Department officials to actually give those depositions to actually give that testimony the three House Committee chairs who had ask for those depositions who are overseeing this part of the investigation they responded to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by basically saying no no no no no no no no and especially from you Mike No. They told him this today. Quote Secretary Pam Pail you were reportedly on the call when the President President pressed Ukraine to smear political opponent. If True Secretary Pompeo you are now a fact witness in the house impeachment inquiry you should immediately cease intimidating dating department witnesses in order to protect yourself and the president any effort to intimidate witnesses or prevent them from talking with Congress including State Department employees is illegal legal and will constitute evidence of obstruction of the impeachment inquiry in response Congress may infer from this obstruction that any withheld documents and testimony Tony would reveal information that corroborates the whistle blower complaint the committee operating pursuant to our long established authorities as well as the impeachment inquiry we are committed to protecting witnesses from harassment and intimidation and we expect their full compliance and that of the Department of State so breath secretary of State Mike Pompeo himself now an important witness in the series of events or which president trump is going to be impeached. He is threatening into block the State Department officials these other witnesses from speaking to the house about what they have seen secretary of state POMPEO has not been successful well at least yet in blocking all the testimony that he apparently wants to block it was confirmed earlier today that trump's former special envoy to Ukraine crane Kurt Volker will appear as scheduled this Thursday the day after tomorrow for his deposition. Kurt Volker abruptly resigned from his position last week. After after he was named in the whistleblower complaint and just after he learned he wanted sorry that the house wanted to depose him in this matter but he's not the only State Department official that we are expecting to testify. We learned today that the former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Ivanovich she also reportedly plans go ahead with her deposition. Despite these threats from Secretary of State Mike pompeo today ambassador was scheduled to be deposed tomorrow. We have since learned that she has made made arrangements with the house. Her legal team has made arrangements with the House that instead of testifying tomorrow she will speak to the House committees next week on Friday next week October eleventh breath so the news is sort of coming fast now in terms of the logistics surrounding how the testimony from the State Department officials is going to be handled. what we believe is that they're going to be staff lead interviews which means they'll be conducted by probably staff lawyers on the intelligence and oversight and foreign affairs committees these that probably means the questioning will be a little bit better than if the questioning were led by just members of the committee no offense to the members of the committees. I'm just saying when you have one person questioning somebody for a longer period of time with the ability to do follow ups and there are trained lawyer whose only job is to do these things and not get reelected in the process staffed. I lawyer questioning tends to go better than questioning by members of Congress sorry beyond that House Democrats have declined to say whether or not the transcripts description these depositions will be publicly released at any point they've also not indicated whether or not these depositions will be taped or whether they will be transcribed so lots lots of variables still at play here and if you step back from the immediate developments of the day we've still got the broader question of of what exactly the president was trying to get from Ukraine. We know that president trump is likely to be impeached now for having tried to enlist Ukraine to help him in his twenty twenty reelection effort but there is also this very live issue of the president the trump White House or starting to learn to perhaps a broader swath of the administration has been also trying trying in part through this pressure campaign with Ukraine. They've been trying to go not just forward to trump's reelection campaign in two thousand twenty. They've been going back to the two thousand sixteen election to try to basically relitigate whether or not president trump's campaign chair really was taking secret money from pro Russian interests in Ukraine and whether or not the basic question is true whether or not Russia interfered in our election the US in the US government US intelligence community has confirmed has decided has declared in no uncertain circumstances that Russia interfered in our election the trump White House president trump himself and we are increasingly learning members of the trump administration the station are trying to query that or trying to muddy that or trying to essentially undo that declaration by the US government that Russia attack our election to try to benefit that's part of what's going on with this effort by Attorney General Bill Bar Bill Bart and the president contacting world leaders to get them to participate pate in a Justice Department inquiry that the White House is hoping might essentially exonerate Russia for the two thousand sixteen election attack it would undermine the US intelligence communities indies conclusion that Russia carried out that attack yesterday. We got that stunning report from the Washington Post that Attorney General Bill Bar is handling this personally. That's how independent this is from the president's appointees right the president's handpicked. Attorney General is personally traveling the globe trying to get foreign governments to give him to help in this inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation which the White House hopes will discredit US intelligence agencies examination of Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election uh-huh and what remains the sort of big question mark over this whole thing. Is that re-litigating that trying to make it seem like maybe Russia didn't interfere twenty sixteen election. It's true that that does indirectly benefit president trump right he would like history to say that he won the two thousand sixteen election without an asterisk got it right without help from a foreign actor which he got from Russia so indirectly the president benefits from that but the entity this most benefits obviously as Russia Russia because Russia has been sanctioned for that attack on two thousand sixteen election if the US government under president trump is now going to announce that we no longer officially believed that Russia did it. We no longer officially conclude as a government that Russia carried out that attack well then there goes the basis for our government sanctioning the Russian government as as punishment for that attack Russia's sanctioned for attacking us in two thousand sixteen trump and Barr and others appear to be trying to undo the grounds on which those sanctions were laid. I the other grounds on which Russia is being sanctioned by our government and others is there invasion of Ukraine and their ongoing war war with Ukraine and it would appear that the trump administration has been trying to make headway on that front for Russia to the New York Times may kind of an offhand reference to that this weekend when they reported that president trump has quote quietly been urging a deal that would pave the way for a removal of western sanctions on Moscow over their ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Obviously the removal of those western sanctions is quote long a goal of President Putin's president trump himself said as much back in August when he was asked whether or not he planned to invite the Ukrainian president to the White House he said at the time I think he's going to make a deal with President Putin and he will be he invited to the White House meaning yeah I would like Ukraine and Russia to make a deal I would like the Ukrainian president to go make a deal with Vladimir Putin and then that guy can come to the White House why does the US president what Ukraine to make a deal with Russia over Russia having invaded them well any deal between Ukraine and Russia settled this matter would be the basis for US international sanctions against Russia being dropped right so this is is this is something that the White House has been pushing for obviously the way that president trump has been behaving towards Ukraine means that any such settlement right now between Ukraine and Russia would be more on Russia's terms than it otherwise would be right. I mean Ukraine is in a newly week position if they newly cannot count on the US military aid if they newly cannot count on US support and public shows of support things like meetings with the White House invitations to the White House. These are things which trump trump the trump. White House has actively withheld from Ukraine repeatedly since trump took office but Ukraine is further weakened by these nail public indications that their new Ukrainian the president is a sort of supplicant to the president of the United States in trying to get that support that makes him look weak too so the United States and multiple ways has weekend in Ukraine put them in a weaker negotiating position than they used to be in vis-a-vis the United States while Russia has been putting increasing pressure on Ukraine to come under the table right now to do a deal right now well today the other big surprise news of the day today. The Ukrainian government took a major step tord doing a deal with Moscow to settle the war that started when Russia invaded their country Ukraine today signed accords that will allow the Russian occupied areas in eastern Ukraine to hold elections and potentially be granted a special status so that they're a different than the rest of Ukraine and presumably would be having they would presumably have some sort of ongoing Russian influence unlike the rest of Ukraine that has not been occupied by russian-backed forces as the puts it quote the election agreement was seen as the final hurdle before a summit between Ukrainian Presidents Alinsky and Russian and President Vladimir Putin and the leaders of France and Germany who have helped mediate peace talks. There's already protests in the Ukrainian capital tonight. Hundreds of people demonstrating against what they as soon as this new and unexpected capitulation to Russia after Russia has been waging war in Ukraine for five years the Ukrainian president today was also put back on his heels having to defend against accusations that for some reason he suddenly making excessive concessions to Russia resolution of the Ukraine and Russia war especially on Russia's terms were they get to keep Crimea and they get to continue to exercise their own foreign influence Louis over the whole eastern swath of Ukraine. They've been occupying. I mean that's Russia winning the war that's what Russia has been looking for not not only to win that war but to win it in such a way that it will end sanctions and international sanctions against them for their aggression against Ukraine because their aggression if it became Ukraine has now been settled. They got what they wanted and Ukraine gave it. It looks like it's happening sooner rather than later..

Eh Do better okay so do we have devastating facts on Donald Trump of course we do. Are we going to take glee in them. No this is so minded show about the facts. We're GONNA HAVE A lot of fun headline in media. It's been like on the front page for or a few days. Now it's something along. The Lines of Democrats shouldn't celebrate the impeachment of Donald Trump this for other folks parade in American American history but but okay anyway so we will celebrate it with Glee and shot and Forte okay here goes to eleven okay so we've got a lot of that but also here comes birdie no see John. Don't call it a comeback except kind of so I got three facts for you guys one better than the next for the whole show for the whole three hours to notify you. Get your three hours on it. I cash okay. I can't and I will anyway so we got Bernie calendar. We've got great guests Abby Martin's on the show with an amazing new movie about what's happening in the Gaza Strip and then of course Bananas Post Game Okay so let's do it because we got a ton of show for you. All right the secretary of state. Mike pompeo remains defiant defiant when it comes to subpoenas by congressional Democrats who of course would like to speak with him and get some information about his involvement in the trump Ukraine call now earlier it was reported that Pompilio said he knew nothing about the call he was completely in the dark doc and then yesterday news broke indicating that Pompeo was actually listening in on Donald Trump's phone conversation with Vladimir's Alinsky who was of course the Ukrainian president and later up to say to the other is is such that he wasn't the dark. You're listening to all this is really good man. Hold on. I'm really enjoying this man all talking about by again again by eh but look the gives you a sense of what hilarious liars they are. He's like I have not seen the memo that describes the call and no I did not read the whistleblower so Bo complaint yeah look it's partly about you would imagine you should read it but he's a donor any of that then two days later dude you're on the call. Well okay okay. That's true so Various House committees that are conducting these investigations as part of the impeachment inquiry you have subpoenaed members of the State Department and Pompeo has responded to that by saying that nope were We're not going to cooperate cooperate until we obtain further clarity on these matters and for his part pompeo is arguing haven't done anything wrong. Take a look the president's lawyer Mr Julius that that the State Department instructed him to get involved with Ukraine to reach out to presence Alinsky and his aides it. Is that correct me if so what exactly was he told to do by the State Department to the best of my knowledge for what I've seen so far each of the the actions that were undertaken by State Department officials was entirely appropriate and consistent with the objective that we've had certainly since this new government has come into office now. Yesterday we shared a story about how senior aides and Biden's campaign are arguing that cable news networks and television stations should no longer book Rudy Giuliani to comment on this whole controversy because he keep spreading misinformation conspiracy theories about Biden. Now I would argue that that's actually a really bad move based on principle and also just based on strategy because Giuliani is the one who's going on cable news incriminating members of the State State Department. If you don't remember that take a look at this next video she has resigned. Do you know why I don't know why Kurt resigned. I I mean there. I think there are a lot of people in the State Department who maybe have questions about what he did and why he did it but I should tell you. He wasn't the only one he was joined by another ambassador. Who Talk Talk to me? debrief me gave me information about what to ask Mr Mr Euromac do this on my own. I did it at the request of the State Department by the State Department. You know you were doing these things. Thanks not ask you to do these things. He did not Mr Mr Volcker did and then missed a son wounded but when I talked to the secretary last week he said he was aware of told me that he was aware of love this. I love this cat fight and it's right for everybody a national. TV Giuliani is throwing the State Department under the bus so pump Pao's saying like call well call I never heard of it right and Giuliani's going out there and be like Oh yeah. Here's the the tax from the State Department and it's Volcker and it's this guy at Pompeii. Oh told me last week he knows about it and so everybody's in the you're and everybody's gotTa ship and so they're like everybody's waiting out all over the place. It's all over television and then meanwhile trump and his troubles online like nothing to see. What do you mean I the real problem is the Democrats right? You see what I'm saying. Nobody sees what you're saying. You guys are lunatics and it's on display play for everyone and so if you're wondering why. Why are they shooting each other? What is what's going on here? Because Giuliani is saying to the State Department you better not throw me under the bus saying that I went to Ukraine without permission and started conducting shadow foreign policy and I'm the bad guy and I committed illegal elax Ne you told me to do it and here's the tax and at center he's got more threats coming up later right and then meanwhile pompeo's is in bigger. You're trouble 'cause it's one thing just looney toon Giuliani's running around Eastern Europe going man documents on on Soros and Biden and whatever goes. That's exactly how it okay but it's another thing if the State Department is authorizing trips that are not on behalf of the United States government but on behalf of Donald Trump is a person and as a politician that could be more more problematic and illegal so that's why pump here in a cold sweat was dark room. I don't I don't know what happened. What are you doing rudy? What are you doing so palm? Pails first strategy which obviously didn't work was to lie about what he knew or what his involvement was in the communications between Donald Trump and Vladimir Muir's Alinsky and then once news broke indicating that he was listening in on that call he decided to change course and essentially tell these various House committees that he will will not cooperate with their subpoenas so I'm curious to see how these committees respond to that because there has been strong language in regard to two refusals to cooperate they claim that they will hold individuals in contempt of Congress will see if that happens but I do WanNa play like one more clip again. This is a clip that we've shown you in previous shows but it features Rudy Giuliani again incriminating the State Department. This is from September twenty six take a look are oh you rudy concerned that year on necessarily dragging his name into this whose name volkers them name yes. He should step forward and explain what he did. I went to meet this Alinsky. Aid at the request is to the State Department fifteen memo's make that clear tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick look when the rats are screwing are scurrying around the ship like no no you go in for all get out of here. I'm going to get on a lifeboat first. Well then you've got issues here and and when when you're doing it in front of everybody people can see the panic I could smell the republican panic in the morning and it smells disgusting too at the same time. It's like a Roka for cheese so yeah what is that but hold on we try the my favorite line from Peyot who wrote a letter to these committees was the following he argues that these Democrats rats are attempting to intimidate bully and treat improperly the distinguished professionals of the Department of State. Oh yes I'm so glad you read that. That was my favorite line too so what I love this the distinguished professionals of the Department of State no Mike. He's talking about you so he's referring himself is congress trying to intimidate distinguished professionals such as myself who only two calls in the dark the good luck with that son. Hey somebody book rudy again. Get more damage you can do well speaking of Rudy our next story talks about him and how he's facing a subpoena. I never talked to him. Ukrainian official until the State Department called me and asked me the show it and then I reported every conversation back to them and Laura. I'm pretty good lawyer just a country lawyer but it's all here right here. the the first call from the State Department well trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani flaunting and boasting about the fact that he has evidence and recordings of a member of the State Department has led to a subpoena toward Giuliani now Various House committees have subpoenaed Giuliani in order to testify shared share documents in regard to this impeachment inquiry and the subpoena does require Giuliani to produce communications including text messages and phone records records regarding Biden's son Hunter who served on the Board of the Ukrainian energy company and efforts by Giuliani or his associate associates to pressure current or former Ukrainian officials to investigate matters regarding biden or any other American so this was sent to him by various chairman on on committees that are investigating Donald Trump and doing this impeachment inquiry to first of all when he grabbed the phone to put up on air. Yes because I thought there was a twenty twenty four percent. She hasn't was accidentally GONNA show board. Servers are always like we're family. Values these some bitch liberals and see look at my life anybody's voting on anybody's phone okay. Oh come on show to me shows to me it. There's at eight and now they don't put up your vote on TV. It's a terrible idea. Okay so and if you if you are are going around and say hey I got the documents on my phone guess what's going to happen. You'RE GONNA subpoena for those documents and so I'm GONNA laugh my ass off when Rudy psyched doc documents what name so he's I don't have any documents dude TV so you're right here right here and you think he won't turn around. He's a clown so it's really a wild card who knows what he actually has. Whether there really is dirt on State Department officials who he claims he worked with in order to do this investigation into Joe Biden but the chairmen of these committees also as Giuliani to hand over communications regarding. US FOREIGN ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE REMEMBER DONALD TRUMP had a put a freeze on that foreign assistance and any efforts to withhold withhold or delay it now Giuliani was asked whether or not he plans on cooperating with the subpoena and here's what he told Sean Hannity Did you testify because Jay seculars absolutely right.
