Fresh update on "president trump" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News

"WTO as we tell you about two major opinions out of the U.S. Supreme Court this morning. The first one was a 6 to three ruling, the high court sharply curtailing the authority of the EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. The court siding with oil companies and conservative states in adopting a narrow reading of the clean air act, power plants account for about 30% of carbon dioxide output. The Supreme Court is also issued an opinion allowing the Biden administration to end the controversial Trump era asylum policy known as remain in Mexico. The vote 5 to four with chief justice John Roberts and justice Brett Kavanaugh siding with the three liberal justices. Keep it right here on WTO more on all of this throughout the morning and this afternoon. The house January 6th committee has subpoenaed former president Trump's top White House lawyer, the subpoena came a day after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson told the panel pat cipollone warned three days before the riot that the president should not try to intervene in Congress's election certification. We have serious legal concerns if we go up to the capitol that day. And the day of the riot, we're going to get charges every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen. The panel says cipollone may have information about bids by Trump allies to subvert the Electoral College Sagar Meghani, Washington. Some members of the January 6th committee believe there is strong evidence of criminal activity linked to efforts to overturn the 2020 election. But it remains to be seen if former president Trump will face any federal charges as we hear from WTO peace Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. Virginia congresswoman Elaine luria, a member of the committee is among those who feel the panel has shown laws were broken at a high level in connection with the insurrection. Her colleague, Maryland, Democrat Jamie Raskin, says, well, there's evidence of criminal activity. It will remain the Justice Department's call, whether to prosecute. I know there's a great hunger in the public for individual criminal accountability. And we share that, obviously, like all Americans, but that's not our jurisdiction. Attorney general Merrick Garland will make the final decision. The Justice Department so far has not charged former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows with contempt for not complying with a subpoena, something the House voted to do more than 6 months ago.

"And human safety. This is AP news. I'm Rita foley. President Biden's talking about abortion, laws, Russia's war in Ukraine and a number of other things this morning. He just spoke to reporters as the NATO summit winds up in Madrid. We are going to support Ukraine as long as it takes. His prediction for how Russia's war in Ukraine ends. I don't know what how it's going to end, but it will not end with a Russian defeat of Ukraine in Ukraine. And on the controversial subject of abortion, now that the Supreme Court has overturned roe versus wade. I believe we have to codify roe V wade in the law and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that. And if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this. The president leaving the NATO summit now returning home. A new AP poll shows about half of Americans say former president Trump should be charged with a crime for his role in what happened on January 6th. The house January 6th committee subpoenaed pat cipollone, a top Trump era White House lawyer, the AP's Mike Gracia. The subpoena was issued one day after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified that cipollone warned against then president Donald Trump going to the capitol with thousands of his supporters. We're going to get charges every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen. And do you remember which crimes mister cipollone was concerned with? In the days leading up to the 6, we had conversations about potentially obstructing justice or defrauding the electoral account. Cipollone gave the committee an informal interview on April 13th, but he has refused to provide on the record a testimony. Mike Gracia, Washington.

The Middle East saw the biggest rise up by 47% infections rose by about 32% in Europe and Southeast Asia and by about 14% in the Americas. The number of deaths remained at about 8500 worldwide, but increased in three regions, again the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Americas. The WHO says the rise is mostly driven by omicron variants, VA four and BA 5.

We Need to Talk About Cassidy Hutchinson...

"Yesterday, with an urgent pace, the committee put together a surprise hearing with a White House aide, her name Cassidy Hutchinson. Now I'd never heard of Cassidy Hutchinson before, I knew a lot of people in The White House. I knew a different Cassidy who's one of the sweetest person people ever who worked in The White House and was super loyal to the country and loyal president Trump. But this Cassidy, I had never heard of. Fine, whatever. I didn't know everyone in The White House. I didn't work there. Just did some projects and happened to visit more times than not. So this person comes up and she starts to testify. And she says some very, very serious things. She says some things such as, for example, the kind of scintillating news grabbing headline was the one that Donald Trump tried to hijack the presidential motorcade, otherwise known as the beast. That Donald Trump and all of his fury and all of his anger was so upset with what was happening. He wanted to go to the capitol so badly that Donald Trump put his hand on the collar of a Secret Service agent tried to take the steering wheel of the car and the Secret Service had to push him back. I mean, I heard this, I said, wow, that's quite an accusation. Cassidy, have you ever been in the beast before? Because I have. And that's literally impossible to do. I was thinking this while I was hosting the show yesterday, because again, I'm processing all this. I said, I'm not going to cover this until I have time to really let all this set in, by the way, previously I was more immature with the way I reacted to things like I did with Covington, I would like to think this is a mature response. You wait a day. Do you think about it? You process it, you study it, you examine it. That's what adults do. Children immediately like, wow, oh my goodness, see hijack the beast. I can't believe it. And then all it takes is someone to say, wait hold on a second. You can't do that. There's a separation wall between the passengers and the Secret Service. It's physically impossible.

A new AP poll shows that about half of Americans think former president Trump should be charged with a crime for what happened on January 6th that the U.S. capitol, the AP's Ben Thomas. The views on Trump's criminal liability break down predictably along party lines. 86% of Democrats but only 10% of Republicans surveyed, saying Trump should be charged with the crime. Among Republicans, 68% say he should not, and 21% say they don't know. The AP has also been asking Americans about the country's future, a majority of Americans say the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction, including nearly 8 in ten Democrats. What does the house January 6th committee think it can learn from Trump era White House lawyer pat cipollone? It has subpoenaed him. The subpoena came a day after former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson told the panel pat cipollone warned three days before the riot that the president should not try to intervene in Congress's election certification.

Last year the Biden administration tried to end the policy, but a federal judge in Texas ordered the administration to restart the Trump program.

Article III Project's Mike Davis on the Transformation of SCOTUS

"With us right now is Mike Davis formerly chief counsel for nominations for the U.S. Senate committee on the judiciary and a law clerk formerly and also helped justice Gorsuch, get on the U.S. Supreme Court, Mike, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me, Charlie. I always love when you do our interviews, you have that beautiful picture behind you. It's just, it's incredible. So Washington crossing the Delaware if I'm not mistaken. It is, yeah, and I've big, big, big admirer of that painting and what it actually means. So Mike ten years ago, I got my start in politics and I was pro life then as I am now, but I was told by people that roe versus wade would never be overturned. Ten years ago, justice Scalia was lamenting that the court had gone off the rails. What happened in a decade, where we went from a court that was insane and dominated by Sotomayor and Kagan and upheld ObamaCare is merely a tax, even though we know simply that that was an insane decision. We're ten years later, we now have restored constitutional sanity. What do you attribute the success to? I attributed this success to president Donald J Trump and Senate Republicans. President Trump in 2016 won an upset victory against Hillary Clinton in big part because he promised he would appoint constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices and federal judges who would follow the law instead of rewrite the law and what we saw with this Dobbs decision coming out was the culmination of that. It was because president Trump transformed the 5 to four John Roberts court to the 5 to four clarence Thomas court with the appointments of justices, Gorsuch, my former boss, justice Kavanaugh, who I helped lead through the Senate confirmation and then justice Amy Coney Barrett. So it is a fundamental transformation of the federal judiciary back to its constitutionalist origins, what is supposed to be before the liberals hijack the Supreme Court nearly 90 years

Unpacking the Ramifications of Roe's Reversal With Jack Posobiec

"So Jack, the conventional wisdom in the media is that this is going to help Democrats. In fact, let me play a piece of tape here from SC cup cut to here where she says that because of the overturning of roe, it's hard to imagine the Republican Party surviving this. Play cut two. The question that the Breonna asked, I think, is the right one. It's sort of now what are now that anti abortion activists got what they wanted, which is to overturn roe versus wade, what happens now politically do you think? It's hard to imagine the Republican Party surviving this. Between anti abortion, anti LGBTQ book banning anti democracy. I mean, add all of the regressive bull to this. Add it all together. And I don't know who's left in the future and future generations to be drawn to this party. Jack, is this a death sentence for the conservative movement? A death sentence? No, this is more like a new lease on life because as people have been saying, I think rightly so that the old conservative movement is dead. Welcome to the new right. So the difference is, if this were the old conservative movement, if this were the 1990s, if this were even the early 2000s, right, what was the status quo and abortion, right? And let's just let's just talk politics right now. Let's talk about where things were in the country back then. The status quo was safe, legal and rare, right? Remember that safe legal and rare. And it was sort of this entrenched battle where people, you know, really couldn't get any traction along the edges on this issue. But then what happened? The progressive woke left when completely crazy with it, you had president Trump there on the debate stage with Hillary asking her about late term abortion and she won't even deny that she supports it. She won't say that that's completely crazy. So when we've got the technology on our side, when we've got science on our side, when we've got right on our side because we know obviously individual DNA means an individual embryo individual person, right?

Are We Winning or Losing? Rep. Mary Miller Weighs In

"Miller, welcome to America first. Thank you. Thank you for having me. So you were supposed to be in studio last minute, you got to be on the floor. There's some kind of vote coming up despite the fact that the January 6th committee is droning on as we speak. Let's talk about your tweet. Let's talk about the fact that this let's talk about rhinos, conservatives, and the American people. Because you got 14 senators who want to curtail Second Amendment rights, put in Second Amendment, anti red flag laws, and they have the letter R behind their name. And at the same time, you've got clowns Thomas and a 6 judge justice majority in the Supreme Court bring down this decision about New York, your reaction to all of this. Are we winning? Are we losing are the rhino still in control? Well, this is a big win for the Second Amendment for the people for our constitutional rights. Thanks to president Trump for, again, fulfilling his promises. And for putting in constitutional justices, I just can't thank president Trump enough for that. But the battle will never end. I heard someone say the other day that evil never retreats on its own. Only when it's confronted by a more powerful force. And I have to say that one thing the Democrats have gotten used to is Republicans that don't fight if they do fight it's on the defense. One of the reasons we loved president Trump is he fought on the offense for the good of America and that we're going to continue that fight and

"Done politically here in Tennessee and what I want to make sure we understand is that when we talk about these political activities, this is not just about the right to make your own choice. Right now for August and its family, this is life and death. That's what defending liberty means for August right now. It's life and death. And again, and on this day of all days, when we are defending life and we're defending the unborn, I mean, but pro life means you want people to live. You want people to enjoy their freedom. And this little child is being denied that and Gary, I just want people to understand the Tennessee legislature is controlled by the Republicans. The governor of Tennessee is a Republican. So it's really overwhelming for me to try to understand why Republicans are standing in the way of this very important legislation. Yeah, well, that's a great point. I've often wondered that myself and look, I'll just say healthcare is the number one industry here in Tennessee. In fact, I don't believe there's any more money that flows through the healthcare industry, any other states than in the state of Tennessee. And when you go look at these campaign contributions, again, you can go to the Tennessee registry of election finance. And you can look up campaign campaign contributions to every member of these health committees and what you'll find is many of them over half of their campaign finance is funded by pharmaceutical companies, hospital associations, medical associations, doctors and people. Well, there you go. It's all about the money. It's not about the baby. It's all about the money. Right. All right, Gary, we appreciate you bringing this story to our attention. A folks, we've got the story up on our website, Todd starns dot com, call the governor's office, call Vanderbilt children's hospital, Gary, where can people go if they want to get more information about Tennessee stands? They can go to Tennessee stands dot org and of course grown every bit of social media as soon as he stands. And I also want to say really quick, we're in direct contact with the mother Hannah sol and Hannah herself has started a gift in go. You can imagine they're in a pickle right now. They're not sure if insurance is going to cover it because they're fighting the establishment and what they want. So the family themselves has set up a gift and go dot com slash fight for August. All right, good stuff dot com slash fight for August. All right, Gary, thank you, a Gary humble from Tennessee stands on the patriot mobile newsmaker line. All right, here's the deal. We're going to go right to your phone calls, got to take a quick break. I just want to share this info president Trump Justin over a statement and I want to read this to you. Today's decision, which is the biggest win for life in a generation, along with other decisions that have been announced recently were only made possible because I delivered everything as promised, including nominating getting three highly respected and strong constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court. It was my great honor to do so. He's absolutely right, folks, which is why right out of the gate, the first thing we did was praise God and then thank president Trump. Had it been any other Republican you think Jeb Bush was going to put pro life justices on the Supreme Court. He wanted to think that was going to happen? The president goes on to say, I did not cave to the radical left Democrats, their partners in the fake news media or the rhinos who are likewise the true but silent enemy of the people. Absolutely right, mister president. These major victories proved that even though the radical left is doing everything in their power to destroy our country, your rights are being protected. The country is being defended and there is still hope and time to save America, I will never stop fighting for the great people of our nation. And he's absolutely right. All right, got to take a break here, 8 four four 747 88 68. This is the Todd stern show.

And a reinforced a fundamental right of privacy right of each of us to choose how to live our lives. Now with Rogan, let's be very clear. The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk, as chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as vice president now as president of the United States, I've studied this case carefully. I've overseen more Supreme Court confirmations than anyone today. In this case was always discussed, I believe roe V wade was the correct decision. As a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty and matters of family and personal autonomy. It was a decision on a complex matter to a careful balance between a woman's right to choose earlier in her pregnancy and the state's ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A decision with broad national consensus, the most Americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable that had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of Americans today. And it was a constitutional principle of justice.

Obviously and you know the fact that we're the majority which you fervently believe that it's only the two or three percent that are trying to control the ninety seven and ninety eight percent of us and that's why more and more people are waking up every day and then he talks about the fact that these are not private companies anymore once they take on the role you know once facebook takes it on themselves to be the and calling an election You know you're not a private company anymore. If you work hand in hand with a political party you are no longer a private company you are in the arena and if you are in the arena will then it's fair game to go after you ask such and that's what president trump was getting at there is still referred to him as the president because i think there are just too many questions surrounding last year's election to say definitively that he was defeated. But that's a story for other episodes. This lawsuit i think is going to make waves. They filed it in florida. And we're going to have to wait and see what comes of it.

CUOMO, Primetime Chris none of us is a mutant I. mean that's the sad reality the virus is the only constant, and just wait until we find out how long tail this Tornado has I'm telling you I'm still not right.

Light case and they get lucky, but even my wife She had light case, but then her lack of taste and smell not taste men or lack of sense of taste, and Goop I know what you're thinking, but that just started coming back last week again. We don't know what we don't know about this virus, so we have to take it very seriously, and let's be honest. This country isn't doing it on the levels that matter most so tonight. With the president, saying Hey, schools got open I'm going to pressure them now. We've seen this game before. He did it with reopening. He did it with testing. He did it with P. P I'm GONNA. Make it happen Oh, but it's a state issue same thing with schools, so we're bringing teachers from Florida. Because that's not just the biggest hotspot that tracking with cases they want to reopen schools in like a month just when they're getting their worst in terms of cases, got the head of the Teacher's Union to talk about the realities and what they need to go back to work. All right course the corner that's about five minutes from now see then up next. We remember some of the victims of this pandemic, including a doctor who was on the front lines. Tonight, we remember more lives lost when the coronavirus Stephen, Cooper was a New Yorker who grew up in Queens on the morning, of September eleventh, two, thousand and one, he was making a delivery in lower Manhattan. When the towers were hit, police officer told everyone on the street to run Stephen was captured in this famous photograph. He's on the left in the black shirt. Burning away the towers collapsed. He was covered from head to tone, soot and ash after he ran, but he survived, and he never even realized he was in that photo until weeks later. Partner, said for longtime. He kept that photo in his wallet. He was admitted to hospital in March. He died five days later. It was only after his death and he tested positive for the virus. Stephen Cooper was seventy eight years old and he will be missed. Dr Steven Cam holds was the chairman of medicine and. Medical Center in Brooklyn when the pandemic kid patients started flooding in doctors and nurses at his hospital. We're also getting infected but Dr. Cam holds he never even considered not going to work. That's kind of person personally was because of his age. He was in a high risk group, but his family says he would never ask a staff to assume the risk of catching the virus without assuming the risk himself. In April. He tested positive and then became a patient in his own hospital, but he kept on working teaching doctors and nurses from his hospital bed on how best to treat virus patients. He died eight weeks after contracting the virus. Dr Steven Cam Holtz was seventy two years old. Our thoughts go out to every family.

"Illness and who had combated alcohol for a long time in was was released brutalized by their father, according to Mary trump end in part by the president She was very angry. That president trump was talking about the memory of Freddie trump during the campaign saying essentially that he was using him. Overall in the aggregate, it's going to be a pretty familiar picture to people who have read other books about this president. What's different is family member. It's also interesting just the what she says about the relationship between. Donald Trump and his father. She writes at one point Donald Pathologies are so complex in his behavior so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neuropsychological tests that he'll never sit for Others have called him a associated path. A lot of doctors think signed a letter saying saying that to that effect, she actually does have. In in psychology, but the relationship of how she says that her grandfather kind of created Donald Trump in this image is fascinating. It is and look for for people who have known that family for a while. That is what everyone has said. Is that Essentially Fred? Trump created his son that there was this competition for Fred Trump's affection were Affection is the wrong word, but for his attention. And basically married trump describes her uncle as a as in a state of arrested development, emotionally constantly still trying to get love and attention for a father who couldn't do it. Was not able to and a mother who had a variety of illnesses wasn't really able to again I i. think that for people who are interested in where the president comes from. There's very New York, feel about the book. She talks about famous steakhouse in Brooklyn. The, family would go to things does as he tweeted. Yeah, I'm Peter Peter Liquor but and I. think that there are people who. Placing Donald trump at a certain place in tiny New York, I think we'll find this interesting but again I think in terms of the overall portrait of of who he is. I think it. It adds to a pretty broad. or any. Virtual writes about how Donald Trump was able to avoid contempt from his father, which was by doing his bidding for him, and that Fred Fred from seniors we said was She says was a sociopath who co opted his son to reach his own ends, which is pretty consistent as you said what what people have said about him. It's also fascinating how you know. That the father obviously had a lot to do with the sun success early on in kind of funding at and how Donald Trump moved from. Queens to. He had his eyes on Manhattan from a young age, and that's where he wanted to kind of make his mark different from his father. He wanted to make his mark marketing from his father, but he also remember part of Donald. Trump's self portrait that is not true is that he is basically this self made man cutting quote, unquote small one million dollar lawn, his father, my colleagues in reporting twenty eighteen demonstrated. Exactly had not true. That was He was heavily reliant on Fred. Trump and I'm part of the point that marriage from making this is the whole family was they? All were everybody's everybody's money in some way or another descended from Fred trump, and that is the portrait she paints. Maggie Haberman appreciate it. Thank you very much.

"A safe vaccine. How effective vaccine will be a time will tell and I? Don't think there's going to be just one vaccine. There'll be multiple vaccines that we try to get across the finish line as quickly as possible, and we may need multiple iterations of the vaccine. GOING, forward season to season. Explain why the vaccine that you're working on is potentially unique. Right, so. I work at the Walter Reed. Army Institute of Research, which is the largest and oldest research institute in the Department of Defense and we've been working on. Other viruses and other. Like merce and one of our approaches has been to develop a vaccine that attacks all corona. Within that virus family. And If. You think about all the vaccines out there. That are being advanced. It's. Essentially the same payload that they're delivering. If you think of sort of a chassis for vehicle what goes on the vehicle, that's the same. It's the spike protein of a the virus that latches onto your long cells with different with the different vaccines. Is that platform and our platform is like a soccer ball in? It has multiple faces on it, not twenty. And a spike protein goes on those twenty four faces. When you present something like that to the immune system, the vaccine is basically teaching the immune system to fight off the infection without getting the infection when you present that spike protein multiple times around in a small space that tends to boost immunity, and the benefit of this also is that you can mix and match different corona vires proteins so that if this corona virus mutates or we want to address other corona viruses known or unknown in the future, we can put the spike protein from those other corona viruses to pan. Universal vaccine. That's really fastening. Because obviously there are other viruses, and they're likely will be new corona viruses that you know we as of yet do not know about. He has said that given the circumstances he'll quote. Settle for vaccine that seventy to seventy five percent effective, but also raises the point that there's a large percentage, the American population that's. Anti Science Anti Thirty and anti vaccine I'm using the words of Dr Ouchi in order for a vaccine to work. How effective does it need to be? And how many people are percentage of people actually receive it. It all depends on what your purpose your intent it. Are you trying to decrease the number of infections? Are you trying to mitigate the disease severity There are different end points for different vaccines. Irises that are translated more easily like source koby to the virus that causes covid nineteen. You need a higher proportion of people who were vaccinated to completely interrupt transmission. We see with measles. Vaccine coverage goes down just a little bit. You get these outbreaks, so we don't know exactly what coverage you'll need to completely stop transmission, but even a vaccine that is somewhat effective in even taken by a proportion of the population is going to have some impact, and it's better to have some impact than nothing in our tool shed at all. Yeah, you took the long war. By that. You mean other viruses that are out there and others that are yet to come. This is a seventh corona virus that has been identified as infecting humans. Five of those seven have been identified since two thousand, three with SARS one. I. Don't you know there's no reason to think that things are accelerating? Decelerating so there's no reason to think that another one is not coming or that. This may not become a seasonal issue with this virus. Yeah, the doctrine would jared I appreciate all you're doing all you and your colleagues are doing. Walter Reed. Thank you so much for all your work and thanks for being with US tonight.

The book is called too much and never enough. How my family created the world's most dangerous man and his publication day was moved up until next week from a date in late July. You might remember the president's younger brother tried to stop publication of the book, but an appeals court lifted the temporary restraining order issued by a lower court among those who have read. It reported on Maggie. Haberman White House correspondent, The New York Times and CNN political analysts so Maggie the the this book you've seen it. There are a lot of sort of notable passages.

What's coming out of book? Look I think a few things. Anderson I think certainly the SAT. Anecdote is very interesting and with any other president it would be mind blowing, but in terms of the things that this president has been accused of or or actually done over time it is, it is sort of a smaller by comparison look.

"We've done a good job. How does that sound to you? Does that sound like reality that we're in a good place? Because those are the words, the President United States day even as the numbers, his own expert scientists with decades of experience say the President says we are in a good place with the pandemic. Those are his actual words. I didn't actually believe it when I first heard it, but it's on tape. He was asked Greta Van Susteren about Dr Anthony Vouchers assessment that the country still quote knee-deep in the first wave of krona virus. Here's what he said. Well I think we are in a good place. I disagree with. We've done a good job I. think we're actually. We are going to be in two three four weeks by the time we next week. I think we're going to be in very good shape. So. This is a good place to be in the pandemic case you wondering soon, we're going to be in a very very good shape, he said. Prisoners spoke of Florida California states the became in his words hot, but even every said quote. We're going to be very very good very soon. The same prisoner told diamond silk that the virus would miraculously disappear by April the One. Who keeps saying that? We have the best testing. Keeping them honest, it's remarkable how Sony things can look from inside a biological bunker. The White House where everyone has to wear. And get tested just to come in contact with you. It's a bunker so secure. Apparently, not even the sound of your own leading experts can penetrated. The President says we're in a good place. Dr Anthony Fauci. Said this just yesterday. The current state is really not good in the sense that as you know, we had been in a situation, we were averaging about twenty thousand new cases a day two days ago, it was at fifty, seven, thousand, five hundred, so within a period of a week and a half. We've almost double the number of cases. So, of course, the president doesn't have to take it from the nation's most trusted infectious disease expert could listen to other top members of his own virtually invisible coronavirus task force who also acknowledge the situation today on a call was state governors. Vice. President Mike Pence Dr Deborah Berks Along with. Many others things. Have, seen his eyes of each answer morning, I think. You want to give a brief summary of nine.

I mean that sounds like a good place to be right California Texas, Florida Arizona, South Carolina and Georgia Oklahoma Iowa was state Washington DC Montana Louisiana Nevada. And Tennessee, that's fourteen states and the District of Columbia. A good place. By the way would you heard the vice president saying that calling knowledge in the rising cases in percentage of positive, he's also without really actually saying it acknowledging that when he said this just a couple of weeks ago, he wasn't being honest about what was already happening. In states, the administration and push to reopen. We slow the spread. We flatten curve. We've saved lives. We slow the spread. We fled into curve. We Save Live. That was from the last coronavirus briefing late last month. He was talking in the past tense. You might have noticed, but he wasn't denting knowledge in the rise in cases that was already happening. Now. He has no other choice for the president wants you to believe everything is good. Today talked about forcing schools to open and pretending the governor's or school officials might be reticent to open because they think it helps them politically. and. We hope that most schools are going to be open. We don't want people to make political statements to do it for political reasons. I think it's going to be good for them politically, so they keep the school slow no way. Going to put pressure on. Governors and everybody else to the schools to get them open. And a very important. The man who's every decision is based on what will get him reelected. What will energize his base and appeal to people's most primal fears is saying the governor's and school officials don't want schools open because of politics because it benefits them politically. We were so deep down into a well of laws. It is hard to even realize how dark this is. There's no political benefit and keeping schools closed keeping kids upset and parents, angry and parents unable to work because their kids are stuck at home. Oh, yeah, politically! That's going to serve you really well by doing that. Right now outside of a very few states, the entire countries dealing with the consequences going too fast too soon in the president's urging. At the president's direction, vice president pence always says, but without his leadership on how to do it safely without his basic encouragement to wear masks and social distance wall opening. As of tonight infections in thirty one states, holding steady and fifteen, and dropping in just four and comparing states that rush to reopen to those that didn't only underscores the point. Here is new. York and Green Florida in pink. New York worked hard to get. Its cases down has been cautious about reopening. Florida reopened quickly now new cases rising. The number of people being hospitalized, growing and counties across the state, intensive care units operating one hundred percent capacity beds available yet against that grim backdrop Florida's governor today ordered schools to reopen for in person learning in the fall, and the president praised him, Ford of course, even as he said that plans to hold the Republican National Convention Jacksonville or now quote flexible.

"Interesting emit considering? How present formation is probably what was used to spy on President? Trump's team to t o how? I got some splayed into do art as I told you before I wanted to move. The media's is again hapless especially these left wing blogs one of the worst being law and crime outfit. They're already prepping you for the narrative on Flint. So we know he was framed. We know they had no derogatory information. We know now. They tried to spy on them with either or another spy too which is even worse and we know after they wanted to close down the case they changed their mind to catch them in a perjury trap. But none of this bothers I the ironically titled Law and Crime Website a known mouthpiece for leftist media people who have no integrity our principals at all who claim to have legal degrees in other. Look at this headline. They've already prepped their narrative. Show again. That's why the left does not care. They love police. State target. None of this flint stuff bothers them at all. We're not arguing for Moore agree for the Third Person Listening Liberal. Don't care they love this up headline Loin crime by Matt Nathanson. Aaron Keller obviously to completely unprincipled folks. The bombshell that wasn't lawyers say the F. B. I.'s tactics and Mike Flynn case. Where Routine Jogesh? So we know he's supposed legal professionals hear writing for Law and Crime Law. No crime you might want to dump the law part. Maybe just call it. Crime dump the whole thing. So it's routine to target the director of the Defense Intelligence Administration potentially multiple spies or to use a spy. That lied to you. I don't know which one is true allied or they're multiple spider who also commented way. Set Him up at dinner and Impune. The integrity of an innocent woman would spend a lot of La Cova. And then when you find out in a file there's no derogatory information that set up didn't work you try to close the file but then the FBI tells you not to close the file to go back and interview 'em again and you interview them at the White House about transcript you already have. You don't need to interview Mont. And then when he forgets to not the exact words you can't get the exact words down you charge him with lying even though you're three. Oh to says you don't think he lied. So you edit the three to to make it out like he lied but don't worry don't worry this is all regular routine for the FBI according to the law and Crime numskulls again. Maybe they should just wipe the law and part out. Just stick with the whole crime thing. All right we're going to wrap spin log show appreciate it just one final story because it's a good one. Listen whether you like Tessler not we were going to buy one. My wife and I would change your mind but Eli Bosc is becoming quite the free marketeer here which is ironic.

"I've accumulated I think. Flynn genuinely just forgot. Mike Flynn is a TR- why do I base that on? What do I based on them? I'm not just throwing this out there. Ladies and gentlemen I been in the law enforcement infrastructure the federal government. People aren't stupid at the top. They know how the machinations of the system work. Do you think Mike. Flynn trained intelligence. Officer doesn't know the FBI questioning him about a call. Has the transcript of the call. Why would he lie knowing they can read it right there? It doesn't make sense. He was on vacation in the Dominican when the call came over people on vacation tend to relax. Maybe have a few drinks. Do whatever you don't remember every detail of it. Why would he lie knowing they have the transcript? It's foolish. He did not lie. I'm convinced he just forgot the details of the call. Something people do every single day. Now this case amazingly gets even worse. I WANNA get into Peter. Stroke the scandal of the three. Oh to which I didn't mention yesterday. I WANNA hat tip conservative treehouse. Guys by the way I saw something on their twitter is very good very good. That's where this comes from. And that's where their screen Scott's screen shots from. I want to get to that in a minute because it makes this case even worse now. We must framed now. We know they were going to close the case because they had nothing on him and number three even worse.

"It. Paula loves it's been a staple in our household. All right. Joe. You got the belt. Let's go want to give President Trump. The belt we may have thrown them off a little bit how to take the tie off only out of respect for the office of the presidency. So let's get to story number one today. Unbelievable I don't unbelievable is inaccurate term anymore and I don't like inaccurate terminology. Precision matters talking about the Flynn case. Unfortunately it's totally believable. Just when you thought after yesterday's show it couldn't get worse the FBI now essentially acknowledging in writing a setup and framing of a three star decorated US general in former National Security Advisor. Mike Flynn just when you thought it couldn't get any worse it. Does John Solomon put this out. Yesterday is excellent new website. Just the news. You need to read this article. Be Up in the show notes again. Bongino DOT com slash newsletter. I subscribed to my newsletter. Send you those show notes? The newsletters the same thing every single day. Unbelievable again. This case is getting worse the FBI found quote no derogatory Russia evidence on Flynn. They plan to close the case before leaders intervene. Fbi FBI memos show. The case was to be closed with a defensive briefing before a second interview with Flynn was sought folks so now we have in writing allegedly FBI SAS level employees. Bill price step in his own notes. Who supervise this operation for Jim? Combing we have them writing notes. Well what do we do? What do we do we get them on? The Logan Act logo never successfully charged ever in the history of the United States. Do we charge them on that or do we try to set them up in a perjury trap in writing? Now I'll get to the media and the new hack media narrative of course is the. Fbi does this all the time if they do we need to disband the FBI tomorrow setting people up in perjury traps. That's your new narrative media. Okay you guys run with that. But from the John Solomon piece. Yes shockingly. This case does get worse. They had no derogatory information on. Flynn meaning they could find. He did nothing wrong and they kept it going anywhere from the peace quote evidence withheld for years from Mike. Flynn defense team. Well leave that to the side to it. They held this for Mike. Flynn lawyers showed the FBI found quote no derogatory Russia evidence against the former trump national security adviser and at the counter intelligence agents had recommended closing down the case with the defensive briefing before the Bureau's leadership. Oh you mean like call me. Those guys intervened in January of two thousand seventeen the recommendations to close the case down came sixteen days before president trump took office plans to have Flynn Services National Security Advisor after eight hundred found. No listen to this. Listen to this had found no incriminating evidence by sweeping counterintelligence files and talking confidential human sources the memo. Show so just to be clear where we're going with this the FBI I. With all of their massive powers to surveillance to wiretap computer files databases. They can search intelligence. Fazei can search. They did all of this including what was an obvious. Set up back in two thousand fifteen by Mike Flynn to try to get them in a compromising situation with Svetlana La Cova at dinner the United Kingdom. Despite all of that they could still find nothing. Think about Joe Processes for a minute so they massive powers of the FBI law enforcement bureaucracy and all the tools they had at their disposal. Warren's everything they could find nothing zero on Flynn but instead of closing down the case who intervenes the seventh floor of F. B. I. Headquarters Jim Komi Crew Not Ana. We need to keep this open back to John. Sam because again you can read in the show notes Bongino Dot com slash newsletter subscribe. We won't spend your inbox where the files show. The plan is to provide limited defensive briefing so we can be aware of potential pitfalls with Russians. But then the lead agent larger. Russia case. Peter Stroke intervene to stop the case from being closed and pivoted the discussion towards seeking an interview with Flynn. Remember the interview where they set them up. They show up at the White House and accused of lying. We didn't live in the text messages the FBI text messages to his team. Stroke specifically cited quote the seventh floor of F. B. I. Headquarters where then director James Comey and the deputy director. Andrew McCabe worked as the reason he intervened. Hey if you haven't closed razor. Don't do so yet stroke text on January. Fourth Razor Razor was Mike Flint Codename Crossfire Razor. It is still open and I'm still listed as the case manager is colleague texted back. Was that colleague Roger. I couldn't raise earlier. Please keep it open for now. Stroke texted later. He added seventh floor. Involved Ladies Gentlemen. This is a really a cosmic level disgrace. What happened to this general? It is now clear and evident that the FBI despite having not a Scintilla of evidence that Mike Flynn was involved in anything untoward with the Russians. You read it right there. They were going to close the case they had nothing zero donut. Goose Egg zero filch. Nothing they kept the case open anyway because Jim Komi seventh floor. Fbi Headquarters was interested in one more interview and the notes on why they were doing. That interview are crystal clear. So what do we do? We try to catch him in a lie. We try to hit him with the Logan Act. Remember as I said yesterday and don't ever forget. This spent fifteen years in law enforcement the one thing that distinguishes a sound constitutional republic from Tarango monarchy oligarchy tyrannical despots. All over the world. Is this our law enforcement infrastructure investigate crime in search of the people that committed them? We don't investigate people in search of crimes to charge them with Adas. Exactly what happened to Mike? Flynn and for the media a grotesque fashion to cover this obvious legal abomination this total violation of big. Our God given rights is one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen in my life. I'm embarrassed for them. I really am. I am seriously embarrassed for our media. The seventh floors involve. Why did you keep this case open because you could not allow Mike? Flynn as Andy. Mccarthy so eloquently said last night on Tucker Carlson show on Fox absolutely right Andy. Mccarthy was an assistant United States attorney involved in some high profile prosecutions and he nailed it last night. What did he say he said? Mike Flynn was trained. Intelligence professional these people this cabal of people looking to set up and framed. Mike Flynn needed him out Joe. They needed him out tomorrow because they knew for a fact he was going to be the one to uncover this thing. Yeah they needed him out and they got what they wanted now. People are starting to really reevaluate this. Ladies and gentlemen including the Vice President himself vice-president pence. I hate to use Bloomberg. But in this case it's necessary even their publishing this Bloomberg even the vice president himself now is starting to reevaluate. What Flynn said. Let me give you some quick background on this. So you understand flint in December. Mike Flynn as the incoming. National Security Advisor speaks on the phone number. December's Donald Trump's still the president-elect not the president yet speaks with embassador Kislyak from Russia on that call. They mentioned sanctions some sanctions. The Obama Administration's talking about general. Flynn says listen. Don't sweat the sanctions. I have argued from the start and I will continue to argue now based on some evidence. I have and some conversations. I've had that. Flynn just did not remember the details of the phone call when Flynn is asked. General Flynn about the sanctions by the FBI and the vice president. Mike Flynn doesn't remember and says he doesn't remember the FBI. Of course has the transcript. Because they're monitoring the call. When I believe illicitly they have a transcript of the call and they said to him Joe. Make sure we're following this here. Is the audience referee. If they need them. You did talk about transcripts. We have the call we have the now. They don't show him the transcript before they interview. They don't even warn them about lying to the FBI and they don't have the he has no attorney present and they violate protocol going to the White House. They have the transcript. They could have shown it to him at the beginning of the interview. Why did you need to hear him? Say it you have the transcript. He talked about sanctions because they were setting him up a perjury trap which he fell into because he didn't remember the details of the call. He then talks to the vice. President Vice President asked him. Did you mention sanctions on this? Call with Kislyak Mike. Flynn denies it now. That was the reason for his termination from the White House. Now even the vice president starting to suggest. Hey listen I'm starting to reevaluate this thing. Quote Bloomberg Pence Says Flynn Omission on Russians may have been unintended. Folks I've been arguing this from the start based on solid body of data..

"Where there but it has to be balanced and they charge almost no tax and their primary taxes sales tax. You know. We're getting them at the monument. We're getting them. I get fireworks for twenty years or something. It hasn't been allowed for environmental reasons. You believe that when it's all stone so I'm trying to say where's the environmental reason. Anyway I got it approved. So I'M GONNA go there in July third and they're gonNA have the big fireworks South Dakota Christie and she was telling me about. Yeah they don't they have virtually no debt and many many of the governors It's Republicans or Republican Stuff and the states is so well run. This is a Democrat point. This is by far their biggest point. And I'm in no rush. I'll be honest with you. I mean if the if they do they're going to have to give us a lot and I hope you're proud of me but I was able to put that in phase for as opposed to phase one two and three and so they're they're ask is that and the other thing that we're talking about is infrastructure but you know they want infrastructure but I don't want it to be a green new deal infrastructure. I don't WanNa be talking about the carbon footprint and then Obama flies to Hawaii to play golf in his plane when he was president and then talks about how he lands that he starts giving a speech on the carbon footprint but he flies thousands of miles to Hawaii in air force. One seven forty seven. The whole thing is no thing is crazy. No I don't Wanna be talking windmills windmills. I ended that tax. We've subsidy the all that stuff. It's it's amazingly now you look at what's going on with the prices of oil and gas. We're getting it for practically free and you'll be proud to know that I'm filling up the strategic reserve for with oil that's costing risks like nothing. Nothing little lucky in that but we take you have to take advantage of your luck you know because of the prices. I'm filling up the strategic reserve. Which a lot of empty space that it and we're filling it up And you know happily doing so. Mr President one question. I get often from my audiences the national debt. Soon Nami coming away now. Obviously the virus. No one saw this coming. Despite media faking a head fake and everyone pretending they were the ones who saw it coming? When they were saying the opposite by the way and calling you Zena Fo- for the travel ban which save hundreds of thousands of lives potentially but that's a whole other topic right at the National Debt. Tsunami coming our way is a real problem the entitlements we just don't have the money if reelected and. I'm hoping that happens. I don't think my where my political stripes on my sleeve. Do you have a plan for that? It really seriously do you up at night and now this year right and it bothers me too but we're going to get out of it and I'll tell you number one remember this. We're barring fairly long term and long term money at zero okay. That's good. That's the big difference between zero and five percent and you know my biggest fear was always that but we have. We're putting in were replacing debt with really long term. Good debt zero with beautiful thing. Our dollar is very strong. The good news is that we have a strong dollar. Okay the bad news is it's harder to do business overseas with other currencies where they're falling but our currency is really powerful now. It's really strong. We're going to be able to do things that are going to be amazing at. We're keeping it strong. We're going to be and what that means is we're oversubscribed every time we go out if we WANNA do highways and if we want to do whatever we want to do we're paying zero and we're over subscribed many times what we ask for with other places as you know. Don't have such an easy time. Getting money We will year five. We will start doing things that will be magic and importantly and by the way you'll always have your social security. We're not playing that game. The Democrats will never they will ruin social security. Because whether it's Medicare for all any of their plans are ruined social security by the way you're GONNA lose your fifth. You'RE GONNA lose. In in my opinion you take you take your second amendment. You take other amendments but let's take your Second Amendment you can lose your second amendment. You'RE GONNA lose gun rights. You know that if they get in you'll be losing gun rights a hundred percent. They WANNA. It's amazing shift that they've taken on that so you're going to lose that you're gonNA lose so much. I think it's GonNa be a very interesting election. I think that the last election dad was so important and I always said that's GonNa that's the most important but we need the four more years so all this stuff seeds you know. We've done so much including tax cuts. They want to raise taxes. They want to do everything the opposite. We're GONNA have tremendous growth. I think what's happening. I think you're going to have a transition we're starting that transition soon. That'll be the third quarter. The fourth quarter is GONNA be incredible and next year I think is going to be comparable to any year. We've had and we'll also be very strong on the bottom line now with all of this. I have to say the Democrats every time we want to do. Something on the military for our defense to Democrats up wants something that's terrible. You understand like not a thing that you would not a thing you or your wife would approve that I can tell you and you have to go along with it because otherwise you're not gonna get the votes you know. We need their votes where people don't understand we may have majority like in the Senate but it's fifty three forty seven small majority and and we may have when we had it in the house. It was what you need Democrat votes and in order to get that you have to give away things like the last time Kennedy Center. Twenty five million dollars. It's CR- I'm I'm a fan of the Kennedy Center but I don't want to Co visit but you know they demand Kennedy Center. They demanded things that were terrible. But the big pictures we had to get what we had to get for the workers and for the small company. So you're gonNA see incredible things happening in year five and six. You're going to be very happy. Okay we're GONNA have a great. I think we'll have a great next year. It's gotta be incorrect. As I've told you personally I love your line. We will build it again. That's an optimal we're gonNA build it again then goosebumps when you said that. I'm not kidding. You can get abused goosebumps. I can give anybody goosebumps. I know this Man Ladies and gentlemen. I know him very well man. He's a great guy he's a sweeter more questions. Everyone thinks he's a sweetheart. I'm a softy. I'm a big teddy bear yesterday. You'd mentioned in the press conference and of course the media as they always do misconstrued. Your comments you had suggested that I'm not asking you to get into the intelligence at all but you would suggest that you had seen some evidence that the virus came from the Wuhan lab not that it was created in the Wuhan Lab which some media folks I was GonNa say something different but of respect for the office I will not said that I should say that you wish suggesting it was created in the Wuhan but you did not say Can you just comment on that please? So we can correct ninety out of the question was a straightforward question and. I also really said that we'll be talking to you about it at a later date when we really know some good hard facts. But I've seen a lot of things I've seen it. I've seen things I've I've seen probably every version of most of the things you've heard and some of the things you haven't heard you've heard pretty much all of it but we're gonNA find out about it you know. I did an incredible deal. China's been ripping US off for years. Hey who's talked more about China than me? It was one of the between the border you know. Nobody talks to you. Notice to Derrick Mr President. They used to make fun of you on the campaign trail. How often you brought up China and now you notice they flip the script that you were being soft on China. This is bizarre. It's like well in. But but I talked about China's ripping us off. I mean they would take it out from three hundred billion to five hundred billion dollars a year out of our country of our hides for two years and that is in all fairness sleepy jail. He had no idea he has no clue but Obama and and Joe they rip them off so badly but they also did with previous administrations. I mean this fears until I came along and I've taken in billions and billions of dollars literally a month then. China's never gave us ten cents and now they have and even before the tragedy remember I put tariffs twenty five percent in two hundred and fifty billion and they targeted farmers and took the money a small piece of it. Because it did. I said how much the targets get. Did they get to the farmers get targeted for Dan? Bay said Sir Sonny Perdue. Who's the Secretary of agriculture? Doing a great job they said Sir Two years ago was twelve billion this year. Sixteen billion I said good. We'll take twelve billion and we'll take sixteen billion out of our tariff money. We have a lot. Leftover like tens of millions leftover from China. And we'll give it and I gave twelve billion the year before and they gave a sixteen billion last year. And we're giving nineteen billion this year. Nobody ever did that. And one of the reasons that the other administrations never challenged Jonah. Is They thought that they'd take advantage of I said no? No you'RE GONNA pay tariffs twenty five percent on two hundred and fifty billion that a lot of money plus ten percent on any money over that. So you're GONNA pay tariffs and they did so we've taken in tens of billions of dollars and I've been able to help the farmers who unfairly targeted and you haven't heard any complaints. I'll tell you and you know the farmers love me and I love them but but the thing about the Democrats like as an example. They want open borders. So look how well I've done at the border? That border is sealed except where farmers need people coming through. You know we make it actually easier. We can't kill our hurt. Our farmers you know it's too with people. A certain people coming through but the border is sealed and we built one hundred and seventy miles of wall already and it's moving forward at a rapid rate. Every every week we build two three four more miles. I'll have by early next year. The will be complete. Nobody ever talks about it. You know the Democrats. Don't talk about it because they now know. That was a bad political move. They oppose me on the wall and Dan. I'll say nobody else but me could've gotten that wall. We add the Democrats. I got seven hundred thirty eight million dollars for the military..

"Once upon a time we were introduced to world unlike any other Elsa. Promise me we do this together. Okay but now. A new journey lies ahead ABC's Ginger Zee. Come with me as we go inside frozen too with the animators composers and storytellers. Who are bringing the next? I chapter in the frozen saga to life inside frozen to a behind the scenes look at the making of frozen to from ABC and Disney. Listen now for free on your favorite evite podcast APP. We talked about the votes earlier. But what are the arguments that led to them. And where do we go from here. Here we got a real live constitutional law expert with us for this. ABC News Legal Analyst. Kate Shaw and Kate. We talked earlier in the show. About how Democrats and Republicans were just really at each other's throats for hours for days for weeks. Is this all gamesmanship is that how is that how I should see it or or do they each have legitimate constitutional gripes with each other. You Know No. I think that the Democrats are making a case that is constitutional. They are arguing that the conduct here was so agree. Just that it warrants. The ultimate constitutional sanctions enchanted drafters of our Constitution designed a government in wish. Ambition was made to check ambition in which no branch of government would predominate manege over another. And no man would be allowed to be above the law including the president especially the president that that's a power that should be used rarely early but basically the conduct at issue here was sort of exactly at the heart of what the framers were trying to target when they wrote impeachment into the Constitution. Mr Mr Trump has allowed foreign powers to interfere in our domestic affairs. He's endangered our national security and our democracy itself for those reasons. We must impeach this presidency. That as the argument that the Democrats I think making and they think they've been hoping that the the facts here speak so clearly that there that they would dislodge some Republicans from their partisan corners and get some Republican support obviously these proceedings proceedings sorta culminating in. Yesterday's vote have made clear that none of that is happening. Let's look at these two phony articles of impeachment Washington Cheetan liberals have failed. The Democrats have trampled them all in their stampede. To impeach their cohorts at a deep state in the mainstream media they republicans have made arguments arse in constitutional terms but then I think are primarily more political that they're they're accusing the Democrats of acting out of hatred. You heard this term a number of times. They hate this president. They've been looking for a way to get rid of him. And you know the the Ukraine call is just excuse that they have land and upon so so those are constitutional arguments. Exactly I mean they think. The constitution sets a very high bar and the Democrats haven't cleared the president himself. Kate essentially said like hey I make policy. Oh see with Ukraine. You guys can argue with me over policy. But that's not impeachable right. That's that's the line sure. So the president saying that and his allies in the house are saying that and the Democrats are saying we stipulated. We disagree with you about almost every policy question. That's not what this is about. This is about some agreed violation of your constitutional both and agreed abuse of power and yesterday we started hearing from some Democrats. You know. Maybe we don't actually send these articles of impeachment over the Senate as promptly we is everyone was expecting like why would you do that and is is that a thing you can actually do Brad so the speaker of the House actually has a lot of control over what happens next. I vote proudly for these two articles of impeachment and then I hope the house retains control of the articles so they sent. It can't take these articles of impeachment until the house formerly delivers them to the Senate and the timing of that is within the speakers control so she could decide. We're going to do this in the first week or the second week of January as I think think is still the most likely scenario. Make our decision as to one. We're going to send it when we see what they're doing on the Senate side but that's a decision that we will make jointly eh or as you said there has been some talk of potentially hitting pause there are some Law Professors in particular advocating for maybe I'm trying to do some negotiating with the Senate before delivering the articles in order to get some concessions about things like live witnesses. I am not going to support witnesses. This is being called for by the president. I'm not going to support witnesses. Being called for by Senator Schumer in particular because Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham I have sent signals that in some ways the outcome here is for ordained this is a political process is not anything. Judicial about impeachment is a political decision now. Obviously House Democrats would like something that looks more like a genuine proceeding which you know minds are open new testimony when he can come in and the outcome is not you know a foregone conclusion that means why Nancy Pelosi sorta sit around with them for awhile. Is there any chance that that she does that. It seems unlikely to me but I do think that it's an idea. That's getting a little bit of traction so I I bet they'll be At the very some kind of internal caucus discussion of the possibility in the machinery of the impeachment process churns on even today Kate Shah. Thanks so much thanks Brad and one last thing I want to go back to the Capitol for some perspective this morning because ABC senior. National correspondent. Terry Moran is actually standing right outside and Terry. I'm reminded that you watch the impeachment of President Clinton play Out Twenty one years ago today did what you saw last night feel the same feel different. It feels very different. Grad that that felt momentous intas and even though the conduct was considered by most Americans not really to warrant impeachment it was about sex the process itself to see the the House of Representatives. And the Senate take these solemn constitutional steps it did feel momentous and I must say it is a sign of the times not it just the partisanship but the news cycles and the kind of country we are today it does not have that gravity it feels like just another chapter in and the outrage and the bitterness and the melodrama the the high stakes reality show that our politics have become that even this constitutional step feels like just another week in the trump presidency and Teri does that tell us more about president trump and his presidency or does he just tell us about Democrats and Republicans these parties in two thousand nineteen. You know both because the parties have changed that's for sure there used to be moderate Republicans and conservative Democrats During the Clinton White House and so they were up for grabs their votes. were up for grabs. The these are just two bitterly opposed camps for the first time in his privileged life life. Donald Trump will be finally held accountable. Listen this has nothing to do with the constitution. It has nothing to do with anything but raw politics. They A and they're voters locked in. Were fifty fifty country. Nobody moves much at all but it also does show how the personality of Donald Trump honed honed over seventy plus years outsized brazen forceful has taken hold of the National Discussion National Imagination. Like like no president that I can think of what they put. My family through is a disgrace me. It's my life it's fine I do but you know what what they put put. My family through is a disgrace and they ought to be ashamed and we should get apologies all over the place pretty much. Everything revolves around him. It seems not just our debates in the halls of Congress but the actions of athletes on the playing fields the old ward shows in our arts even the kind of straws we drink everything everything ends up revolving around him because he bends the national discussion to his will his personality which is performed. and which is just just mercurial. You can never know what's going to happen next. And I think people are numb to that L.. The president trump himself you might say keenly aware of his legacy here and as of this morning he seeks to become the first president ever re elected after being impeached. All because of a phone call in July and a two hundred thirty to one ninety seven. Vote last night Terry Moran outside the Capitol Title. Thank you thanks Brad so here. We are as you heard from Kate. Sean and others throughout a lot of development still to come here but the I-WORD we've been talking about for mud. That tie were now very much a reality. The president has been impeached. Much much more to come on this throughout the day on. ABC News Dot Com or the ABC News App. I'm Brad Milkey Tomorrow.

"On this vote. The yeas are two hundred and thirty. The nays are one ninety. Seven present. Is One article. One is adopted. Two hundred thirty to one ninety seven. That was the tally last night. At eight thirty four eastern time cemented a key part of Donald J trump's legacy because that was the moment he became an impeached president minutes later. A second article of impeachment was passed with with two hundred twenty nine votes article. Two is adopted. Remember it was late July when an anonymous whistle blower reached out to staff members at the House Intelligence Committee expressing concern about a phone call between president trump and the leader of Ukraine though staffers told the whistleblower to hire a lawyer to file a complaint with the Intelligence Committees Inspector General the House Intelligence Committee has just released. The whistle blower complained declassified version of timber. All of America had read that report from the whistle blower says in in the course of my official duties I have received information from multiple. US government officials that the President United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign in country in the two thousand twenty US election less than three months. Democrats conducted depositions that conducted hearings and last night they pass those articles the president Now officially stands charged with abusing his power and obstruction of Congress. And we're going to hear how this went down yesterday whilst GonNa look ahead to the next phases of this so let's get to it. Let's start at the Capitol itself. ABC Senior Congressional correspondent. Mary Bruce Joins US and Mary. The voting took what like twenty minutes and yet this was is really an all day thing. You had more than six hours of debate evenly split between the parties one last chance for both sides of the aisle to make their case and the partisan divide could not have been more stark. All that matters to this president is what affects him personally speaker Pelosi all day setting the tone. What we are discussing today is the established fact that the president violated the Constitution? He sat there in the chamber often in the back by herself as is listening throughout the entire thing and she said as she has said throughout this entire process this is a solemn occasion we gather today under the Dome of this temple full of democracy to exercise one of the most solemn powers that this body can take. It was hard to miss the fact that she was dressed all in black but when she did take to the four to make remarks she made it very clear that she feels the president's actions had left them with simply no choice. If we do not act now we would be derelict in our duty because of course impeachment impeachment was not something the police had wanted to do. This was a day that she had in many ways tried for a long time to avoid this impeachment as renting our country and have it's fatally flawed on a process the substance the intentions and the consequences. It's a total shift show and on the Republicans it was very clear. They are in lockstep with the president. President they were eager to mount a fierce defense. You're about to impeach a duly elected president. Who has done nothing wrong? Of course we didn't see a single Republican break ranks with the president here and they railed against the Democrats for hours. They'll be forever remembered as the Senator Joe McCarthy's of our time one Republican at one point trying to compare the impeachment process to the trial of Jesus Christ haunches pilot afforded more rights to Jesus than the Democrats have afforded this president. Of course you have heard the the president himself compare this process to the Salem witch trials so a lot of Colorful comparisons going on your on the hill and that takes us up to the vote. How did that play out on the floor? Mary House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi presided over these two votes. The first one abusive power and no surprise here. It was a party line. Vote as these. He's votes were occurring. You could actually hear chance. Four more years from Republicans inside the chamber some Democrats were also feeling rowdy as Pelosi slammed the gavel. You can hear them applause laws speaker. Pelosi didn't like that. She put up a finger almost as if she was chiding children's cut it out. We have bipartisan. Opposition impeachment. Not Bipartisan Support and Democrats were largely united as well but two of them did defect to oppose impeachment. They are Congressman van drew of New Jersey. Who's actually already announced that? He plans to switch parties entirely and become a Republican in Collin Peterson of Minnesota a district. The President Trump won by thirty points. There's been a lot a lot of focus. Paid to these moderate Democrats in swing districts that are up for re election. But what has actually been kinda surprising here on. The Hill is how many of them fell in line behind the Democrats today. An oath that gives me resolve resolve to do what is right and not what is politically expedient so many of in the previous day's one by one have come out fallen in line saying that. They feel that they had to back impeachment because I stick with their principles even though they knew that could have cost them their jobs. I come to this floor not as a Democrat not as a Republican but as an American who cares deeply about the constitution. The the closest comparison Democrats had just a mosh rate used to be a Republican. Now he's Independent. He voted for impeachment but then Republicans could also point to Tulsi Gabbard at Democrats kratz running for president. She was that person voting present who couldn't quite bring herself to pull the trigger. Either way. Mary what do you see is the mood of these lawmakers because as we talked about you know these solemn long faces Democrats talked about the anger these Republicans but that genuine performance like what is it. I think it's all of the above. Brad I mean look this has become one of the most intensely partisan episodes I think of our history. It's interesting to see how very few of them Wanna address any of the facts of the president's misconduct nor do they wish to defend nor do they wish apparently Madam Speaker I've struck a nerve and it's more than just a partisan divide. We saw this fundamental divide over right and wrong and that led to essentially a debate where the two parties can't even agree on the basic facts of what happened here and short given the nature feature of this debate Impeachment is a political process. You did hear a lot of political grandstanding but you also heard a lot of passion on both sides. Republicans are adamant that the president did nothing wrong here and they were eager to launch a very fierce defense while Democrats argue the exact opposite. They say they have simply no choice. But got to impeach the president that he has put his own political interest of those of this country and they went ahead and did it in a way that like you said. We've never really seen before Mary. Bruce Thank you thanks Brad..

"Hello. And so it's really once in a year. See. To have all these world leaders who rarely meets the same room. What are they gonna talk about there's the formal part of the meeting where the twenty leaders leaders of other international organizations gather around the table and sort of talked from free scripted remarks, and that isn't expected to produce a whole lot asleep? But the real action usually happens on the sidelines. When meter leaders have one on one or three way meetings and, and talk about issues that are directly connecting. Then their countries already one of the biggest headlines I mean you can correct me if I'm wrong seems to be President Trump's meeting with Putin and his response to a question about Russian meddling. President Trump was asked by a reporter whether he was going to tell Putin not to meddle in the two thousand twenty presidential election. And he said he would do that. He said it with a smile. So the exact tone of his remarks wasn't fully clear, and so we'll have to interpret that and get the readouts from each side afterwards. But they did at least. Raise briefly the subject of Russian meddling in US, presidential elections. I mean surely the biggest topic of discussion will be trade, though, right? Especially for President Trump. That's right. US has some kind of trade issue with quite a few countries out there. Whether it be the European Union Japan, India. And of course, China now in these meetings this morning. President Trump took a fairly conciliatory tone, he didn't seem to want to make. Hey, about the issue at least when he was meeting, these leaders directly, the main event seems to be the meeting between Gijon paying and Trump on Saturday. Right. That's right. President Trump just before he takes off for South Korea will have a meeting with Xi Jinping. And the question is, whether they can get started restarted at trade talks that have been suspended for a couple of months now and whether they can find a way a path away from the US imposing tariffs on more than three hundred billion dollars in Chinese goods, or put another way the question. Has whether they can find the path away from the direction the US is taking which would be to have twenty five percent tariffs on virtually everything that China exports to the US, and it sounds like China has a long list of demands going into that meeting. That's right. Our reporters lingering way. Bob Davis Zorin Asaka reported that China is planning to present its conditions for restarting talks, and it would like the US for one thing to put aside that threat of tariffs, that's hanging over China. It would like the US to ease off some of the harsh sanctions, they put on while way major Chinese telecommunications maker, and a couple of other things. So I would say there's no way that the US would agree to all of those demands, and the question is, whether they can maybe agree partially to some of them and, and make that an occasion to restart a more formal talks, so with so much happening. What does a successful summit look like for President Trump?.

Get more info at excited at NIH dot gov. Hi, it's Diane great to be with you on my mind. He impeachment calls remove President Trump had been heard since the day. He took office after Trump fired. Former FBI director James Comey token impeachment became louder with a Republican controlled congress app was all it was talk. Now that democrat haven't majority in the house that could change. But should house moved to impeach the Atlantic's Yanni apple bomb says yes, he looks to history to make his arguments in the March issue of the Atlantic. Yanni is good to heavier here on must be rock. You be calling for impeachment of President Trump. How come well? I have come to think of impeachment as a remedy devised for the political crisis the Nisshin presently faces. So I had originally thought of it as an outcome and have swung around to think of it as a process as a means of resolving a debate over the fitness of president, sir of an and really the only constitutional meetings of having an resolving that debate. And since we're having that debate, it seems like we ought to trigger the mechanism to do a properly, you're a trained historian, and I gather initially you were looking at the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Yes. That's right. I thought I would I would write a wonderful history of of. An earlier episode with contemporary echoes in fan myself surprised as I delved into the sources and head Johnson speeches and the transcripts of of testimony of the inquiries, and then the actual trial that the story that that I had learned was not the story that I was encountering Johnson's impeachment is often presented as baldly political act in and. A dangerous episode in in our pass when we came close to removing chief executive for purely political reasons a cautionary tale if you will. And instead what I saw was a process functioning largely as it and one that averted a quite a few much worse outcomes that that loomed in the offing can you replay it made this Erkan stances that led up to that coal for impeachment. Yeah. Andrew Johnson comes to office. And nobody expects him to be president. He's considered uncultured. He comes from the east, Tennessee hill country. He's the wartime democratic governor of of Tennessee. And so when Lincoln is looking for a new running maiden eighteen sixty four when he's afraid he may lose he forms, a national union party in and runs on on a cross partisan ticket Lincoln is a Republican Johnson is a democrat. An so Johnson is delivered into the presidency by NS. Asan's bullet and with the war ending has to figure out what the future of the country looks like while the war raged Johnson and Lincoln were on the same side of the fight Johnson headed slaveholders, even more than Lincoln did that they were the the autocratic elite of his state, and and a hog the political power and he wanted to see their power crashed with slavery gone. That was the limit of the change that Andrew Johnson wanted to see he believed as he said that this was a white man's country which needed a white man's government. He wanted no civil much less political rights for the freed slaves or or other black people living in the United States and was prepared to go to extremes to defend that as we're insurgents who were fighting throughout the American South. So this is the backdrop you have a president who whose ascension to that office of contested legitimacy. Many Republicans felt this wasn't what they'd voted for who. Many in congress started to feel. We're not fulfilling the. Basic responsibilities of the job. And then the the crisis comes and the crisis is is an unprecedented. One in American history. There have been five vetoes ever overridden prior to Andrew Johnson taking office one was twelve or three AM on the last night that Tyler was an office and the others were river improvement bills under under Franklin Pierce, all of a sudden congress passing civil rights legislation and the president is vetoing it, and they are overriding. We'd never asked a president enforce a law that he had opposed. It hadn't happened before in Johnson affectively refuses to do it. And so you have unfolding over the course of a couple of years a conflict between a congress, which is telling the president what the laws and asking him to enforce it and a president who is doing everything that he can to act oughta critically in defy that congress that that's a constitutional crisis. Did Charleston proposed did with those freed slaves. He wanted to reestablish the racial hierarchy. Key that had existed in the south before the war. And in fact, that the states that the transom wants to come back into the union human. They never really been out of the union. The they start passing these black codes, which which say things like a black person can only be off their own land with written permission of a white person. Or they all have to have jobs or that can be locked up for vagrancy that they need to, you know, step off the sidewalk I out of deference to white person who's walking along this was the kind of racial hierarchy that Johnson wanted to see establish and it was being established by sorghum blood throughout the south. You have things like the Ku Klux Klan forming and killing those blacks and also white Republicans who who are trying to establish some degree of of civil equality. Johnson blames black people for this violence says that it is their provocative efforts to secure civil then political rights for themselves that are inciting it I in that congress is to blame as well for encouraging them in these aspirations toward equality. So you. He went into that thinking, it was purely political and came away recognizing that they were true important questions raised you ask that's where you can think of this as a political dispute right that there are two different policies that that were on the table for the reconstruction of the United States, but it moves beyond that because very rapidly guests to the question of is the president upholding his of to faithfully administer the laws of the United States is he defending the constitution would congress is amending to to extend rights is he fulfilling the ideals and fundamentally is he fit for office. He he is the first president in office to go and speak to big rallies. This has not been done before he goes in. What's called swing around the circle, and these are raucous affairs. Where he gets up there before a crowd of supporters. He adapts his speeches on the fly listening to what the crowds applauding and tumbling down on that. He'll he'll go back and forth with hecklers in one. Of these notoriously a heckler Jess that that he's the plan for not hanging Jefferson Davis, the confederate president, and he goes on a riff in and suggests that instead if anyone's going to be hanged, he should be hanging thatt's evens who's the leader of the congressional Republicans. So he's calling for the lynching of his political rivals this kind of rhetoric greatly disturbed congress and and really called into question. The president's fitness for the office that he held sell player Dez this. Well, you know, there is a process that moves by fits and starts that that will. I think very familiar to anyone watching the contemporary process unfold. After the swing around the circle they convene impeachment proceedings that there's a rebuke in a midterm election at empowers congress, and and the inquiry drags on for for more than a year opening closing whenever it moves further away from impeachment Johnson acts more critically and ignores congress, whenever they inquiries, particularly serious. He pulls back a little bit and behaves himself the. Early theories of peach mint. Many of them were not to put too to find a point on it. We're not the man who had ridden the thirteenth amendment and and initially calls for impeachment does so on the theory that Johnson had helped assassinate ABRAHAM LINCOLN. He later tells the committee that the evidence he has for this is not the sort of evidence that would be admitted in a court of law. It's more of a hunch, really. And so the process does two things it starts to focus on the things that Johnson is doing that are genuinely objectionable, and well evidenced, but it also puts a lot of these other theories out their demands that members of congress put forward the evidence to substantiate their claims, and where they can't do that it sets the messiah and discards them. So you have this extended process of discernment and discovery which both holds Johnson back from doing some of the things that he wants to do because he feels the pressure, but much more importantly, it allows the public to start to get a view of what Johnson is like they get to see what he's actually done. They get to see which claims have evidence in which are unsubstantiated. And that's a really healthy process. How do they end up? Well, you know that they don't manage to impeach him at first and and after a year of hearings they still haven't found the grounds from moving forward. And then Johnson does something extraordinary. He fires his secretary of war despite previously having recognized a law called the tenure of office act that that told him he couldn't do that essentially without Congress's permission that law may have been unconstitutional, but the firing of the secretary of war is is extraordinarily in two ways. One is it is the culminating event congress has gone to greater and greater measures to try to get the president enforce the law. He keeps on firing people who are trying to enforce the law. So the tenure of office act is maybe an unconstitutional extension Congress's authority. But what is really about is trying to find some last ditch effort to just say to the guy. Hey, you're the president your job is to enforce the law, and you've gotta stop firing the people who are trying to actually do that. It doesn't work. He he he breaks it. The other thing that makes it extraordinary as there is a night in the capital in. The city where
