"Earlier as far as the information being presented saying that in some cases they felt like it was the Republicans and leads to her they were being lectured about this whole thing and we heard Jerry Nadler earlier on talking about releases saying if that centers went along with it Republican senators this was a cover up did that leave a bad taste in the the Senate's mouth as far as the people representing you and your fellow senators I think most of us are trying to put out of Armani's personalize and look at the facts the law the evidence that's why we need those additional documents and witnesses because they can complete the story is ready overwhelming evidence if I were the prosecutor in a jury trial here I could say I rest my case hi Americans are entitled to see all of those documents and witnesses who had eyes on and ears on the press they were in the room Mick Mulvaney Chuck the president's orders to withhold the money for Ukraine John Bolton trying to talk him out of one to one Robert Blair and Michael Duffy with the present tension executing the order the documents are black and white documents don't line we are entitled to them we're not doing the house's job the house was blocked by the president who refused to provide those documents and who prevented the witnesses from coming forward so our responsibility in the constitution is to seek the truth and put aside what we like the lawyers are not on either side we need to look at the facts and the law and put country above party this senator Richard Blumenthal member.

"Of a different race as it happens on the next episode sort of NPR's codes which we're talking about making a maintaining friendships across racial violence. Listen and subscribe and we're back in. Well let's talk about a common theme of the day. It seems like all throughout the day there is. This consistent refrained from Democrats that if the Senate wanted to learn more extensively could with the addition of witnesses sue. What's the back story here about? Bringing witnesses or not bringing witnesses to the Senate floor we have to go back to the house. Investigation and remember that Democrats Kratz in the House wanted to hear from any number of officials and seek documents and the White House issued a blanket. Answer no to all of this and they were stymied in that investigation and the Senate has its own separate power to try again and the house is trying to lead by Adam. Schiff keep pressure on the senators to use their powers to issue their own subpoenas China's to try to hear from these witnesses the names you hear all the time from Democrats that they've focused on our four key players. The Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney former national security adviser John Bolton and to trump appointees that work in the White House in the NBA. Michael Dovey and Robert Blair not household names but people that would have direct first hand knowledge about the decision making process to withhold the military eight. The Senate has the subpoena power. They could order the testimony of these witnesses complicated by the fact that John Bolton has said if he is subpoenaed he'd be happy to come talk to the Senate. So you have this competing force of Democrats who have an argument that the public has indicated. They're open to public polling shows that they're open to this idea of more witnesses. It's pretty simple to understand and people out there have more information that could clear the president. Then they should hear from it especially at the White House is saying consistently. The president. Hasn't done anything wrong. In fact what he did was perfect could in the White House chief of staff. Illuminate some of that decision making power. So what's all this talk about a potential witness deal and how I guess really potential is so. There's always been this chatter about if you're going to get a witness the on the Senate you need fifty one votes. He would need bipartisan buying. And the idea that Democrats are going to get to call some witnesses that they want means Republicans would have to get a couple of witnesses they want so in this orbit of. Who could you possibly be talking to? There's always been some chatter on the hill and there was a report in the Washington. Post that Democrats McCarthy tried to shoot down today that said hey would if we did offer up somebody like Hunter Biden or Joe Biden. Could we try to bring Republicans to the table with a witness deal deal. The Biden family of course being at the center of this in many ways because trump was asking the Ukrainian president to look into their family so people like shift took great pains today to come out and say we're not doing this..

"The Gao which is the government accountability office came out on January. I don't remember six Mr so and said that What trump did is a federal crime literally literally broke the law so this whole time and I kept getting frustrated today watching this if they would argue That crime doesn't have to be committed. This is fine. Make the argument but at least circle back and say but he did commit a crime. That's part of my problem with this. They're not they're not circling back and touching on the actual crime. He did commit. And when I tweeted needed that out today during the discussions around whether or not he committed a crime. Here's what I said I said please realize even if there was no call no quid pro quo. No blocking witnesses no blocking documents and no lies. Trump still violated federal law and deserves impeachment. Congress appropriated funds to Ukraine. He stopped it unconstitutionally. That is a crime someone very thoughtful reply. Apply to me and said Alexander Pope Replied and said what part of the Constitution did he violate late. I've only heard that his actions were illegal. I'm just wondering how that works. Here was my reply article. One section nine clause seven of the constitution. I'll say it again if you're taking notes the US Constitution Article One section nine clause seven gives Congress congress the sole right to appropriate funds to this foreign government for aid now. The president has the ability to veto that but in this case he did not when he signed it it became law. They proposed it. Congress approved it. The president signed it became federal law when the president then decides to hold that aid that has been appropriated by Congress it is a federal crime crime and the Government Accountability Office has confirmed that Donald Trump broke federal law by withholding this aid period. Now I'm going to move on. Here are the amendments that were proposed by the Democrats today. Here's what you missed in. This is a quick rundown. Trust me. This was twelve and a half hours of me sitting in front of this television Taking notes and just being focused So that I could do this. Show show at midnight The and some of them are very generic. The first one was The right to subpoena because keep good mind. Republicans have said from the beginning. You're not getting any evidence and part of Mitch. McConnell's resolution was whatever evidence you submitted in your articles as we're going to go by will Will vote on. Its on this other stuff later. The Democrats in the First Amendment said We want to subpoena documents from the White House. Anything having to do with Joe Biden Hunter Biden anything having to do with Ukraine. We WanNA see documents. We WanNA see emails back and forth from the president and I'm pretty clear no brainer. Right if he's on trial and he hasn't done anything wrong I wouldn't he say here. Are My emails look at them. I didn't do what you accused me of instead when they. They subpoenaed him in the house. He didn't respond when the they ask for the documents. He did not turn them over. He has stonewalled every single step of the way in. Here's the frustrating part. Here's the frustrating part. The his legal team is now standing up in the Senate going. You're not prepared. You have no evidence and it it it makes you wanna just throw the remote at the TV. Because you're going they requested. Did the evidence. The president blocked them so they added a second article of impeachment would which was obstruction of Congress for blocking evidence. And you have the nerve to stand here and go. You don't have any evidence. Why didn't you? Why didn't you appeal that and take that to court because because it takes months for years to go through that process and the house apparently somewhat trusted the Senate to do their job and that's been the frustrating part for me is he stonewalled every step of the way and then said look? You're a failure very similar to what happened with Obamacare obamacare started off offers beautiful plan. Republicans chipped away at it to the point that it wasn't that great of a deal and then when it got accepted in past and put in the cab going look how terrible it is and here. I am as a liberal telling you I hate obamacare. I liked it at first. I like it was gonna be didn't like what it turned out to be not surprisingly these this very basic idea of. Let's see your emails. Let us see the documents. Please let subpoena the stuff. Republicans voted unanimously fifty. Three all fifty three of them said Nope we're going to table this the word tabling comes up allot and all that means is set aside and vote on it later. At least that's what they say. Now Adam Schiff doesn't believe that that's the real plan he says that but they're they're saying will vote on it later. Have our argument than ask all the right questions and then ask for evidence now in what world does that make sense. It's why in the hell. Would you get twenty four hours to present a case when half of your were eighty percent of your evidence is tied up because the defendant obstructed your ability to get the evidence and then and and then and then the defendant works directly with the judges. And that's what these guys are to let them full. You are not jurors these judges ages in the Senate the Republicans working in and Mitch McConnell has said I'm working directly with the White House. I'm coordinating with the White House on what they want. I'm working with the president. Imagine the defendant working directly with the judge on what evidence will be allowed against him. That's what we're dealing with here. So whenever whatever he asked for whenever the Democrats asked for the White House documents and emails relating relating to Ukraine and Joe Biden Hunter Biden Him and Brisebois and Strike for a crowd strike in all these other. Republicans voted. Don't said No. You can't have the evidence we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA table that and talk about it later. They said look. We'll talk about rather not you need that evidence. After we hear your argument and review your evidence that was shot down fifty three to forty seven the next amendment was they wanted State Department documents and emails that were redacted now. You're talking about documents from the Office of the secretary and this one gets interesting and by the way in this his trial they were. They had a screen. They were doing a presentation. The Democrats did a beautiful job of flashing stuff up on the screen and essentially they kind of got away way with presenting some of the evidence they were not allowed to present so they would say. Here's an email and they would pop up on the screen and go. This is the email we wanna get because when we originally asked for it and it was a part of it was given to us. The whole thing was redacted except upped one-sentence at the bottom and it was considered. Oh at this is stuff. You're not supposed to be able to see because it's redacted because it's secret government stuff but then it was a separate lawsuit lawsuit On the American God what is it the whatever. The act is about Accessibility ability to information. I can't think of what it's called now Patriot Act as a Patriot anyway. whatever it was that that they actually won that lawsuit and got the email from the White House unredacted be through a different lawsuit and they saw that what had been previously. Redacted was not some sort of Secret classified government stuff it was incriminating things to Donald Trump. It was saying. This guy's withholding aid for political reasons. They were the people in the White House talking back and forth and through State Department's going. I'm not going to be part of this. This is an appropriate. Who is approving in this? Why is this being withheld? Why is the president doing this? This is inappropriate. People are arguing and they're showing these emails on the screen and and the Senate and they're saying we know there are more like this. We want to subpoena all of these documents from the State Department. We want these documents from the office of the secretary. We see that things were redacted. That shouldn't have been and we got the other full email through the other La suit. We saw it. The only thing that was hiding was stuff that was incriminating Donald Trump. So now we know that they were intentionally redacting things that they weren't supposed to so there's more to hide their. Let's dive in deeper. Let us go get more of those emails and the Republicans said No. Let's table it. Fifty three to forty seven straight party. Line vote why are they voting against the American people having access to this evidence now. One one person on twitter said David. They're not voting against it saying to just table it Adam Schiff said it best on the Senate floor. He said a vote to delay is vote to deny why. Why would you want to delay this? You want us to do our opening arguments and our twenty four hour presentation without evidence and then you want to constantly come back up to the podium and say all these Democrats don't have any evidence it is beyond frustrating. The third amendment was Oh embiid documents in emails. Now this one is one of the most damning A wimpy is the office of of think was it management and budget. I notice bottle. The B. is for budget It's their budget officials. They wanted to They wanted colby documents in email so there were emails and this is also related to the sixth amendments. While go ahead and do that now with Robert Blair and Michael Duffy Duffy. Duffy is the one that actually came in and stopped the aid to Ukraine. I believe Blair was an official that had been a long longtime budget official official. Who was actually in charge of releasing the funds bl Duffy was appointed by. Trump is a political appointee. Had No experience in the office of Management Budget and all he came in took over just the Ukraine portion and said. We're GONNA stop these funds and Blair didn't know why so. There was some confusion as to why it was being withheld the emails back and forth between Blair and his colleagues there are emails back and forth between Duffy. I'm Blair as to why Duffy was taken over this particular account. And he had no previous budget experience but he was a political appointee directly from Donald Trump. This is excruciatingly cruciate only important to get to the bottom of so democrats and let us see. Duffy's emails let us see Blaise. Communications let US see the communications between Donald Trump and Duffy and if there's even classified in their redacted but let us see the stuff pertaining to the withholding the Ukraine funding.

U.S. House to send Trump impeachment articles to Senate

"Let's get to impeachment we finally have some updates Fauria and I didn't leave the show with this today well number one because I want to make fun of the Democrats during the debate last night and all the craziness that went on there and then we had local issues because the legislative session is officially under way there a lot of issues that are being debated in Tallahassee that will actually impact your lives here in the state of Florida so we wanted to get some of those and of course during the course of the Senate trial we're gonna spend plenty of time on all of this but I do want to update you on where things stand today speaker Pelosi signed a house resolution to transmit the two articles of impeachment against president trump over to the Senate that followed the house approving resolution today appointing house managers for the impeachment trial representative Collin Peterson Democrat from Minnesota was the only Democrat to vote against the resolution the vote triggered the start of the Senate trial which has been delayed for nearly a month after the house approved two articles of impeachment against president trump one for abuse of power in the other for obstruction of Congress polo C. named seven house managers house intelligence chairman Adam Schiff house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler representative Val Deming's from here in Florida Democrat from the Orlando area representative came Jeffries representative Zoe Lofgren representative Jason crow and representative Sylvia Garcia I know hello see couldn't do this she had to include chef and Nadler among the house managers but it would have been much better if she didn't because they're just viewed in such a partisan light and you've got talented people bound Deming's she's gonna be good she's the former police chief of Orlando and she uses out during the hearing as well she did so you've got talented people that you could have handled this you don't need shift or Nadler because nobody's really gonna pay much attention to what they say there's just a view bait in about those two I can see where the mines take a step back from being doing the actual trial and maybe there is yeah behind the scenes manager that's how it should be I don't know you think shift is gonna take a step back from the cameras are now learn mom the with all the incoming that chef and never took from the president maybe plus he said like and I'll let you go over there behind a smart move I don't know if that's what's going to happen but still Lofgren she's been this is our third impeachment trial yeah you were mentioning this earlier she was a staffer during the Nixon Nixon and the run up to the Nixon impeachment was actually in peace okay and then she was in Congress on the house side when Clinton was impeached now she's one of the truck the the managers of the impeachment I'm sorry if you've been around for three if you were a staffer during Nixon you really still need to be in Washington DC well I think it goes to the depth chart the dancing clothes he was well yeah yes yes yes I'm looking at a trial of it you know fantasies over here yeah that's how I'm viewing rice really she was there for Nixon to still there but now that that makes total sense to have somebody like that we I kinda knowledge and experience on your house manager staff list in terms of what's next there's gonna be a few days a housekeeping and procedural work Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to hold the substantive part of the trial opening arguments in the queue in a period it's gonna hold that until Tuesday in order to give house managers and trump's defense team a couple of days to prepare on Tuesday the Senate is expected to vote on an organizing resolution the will lay out the terms for the trial it seems like they're going to model it very closely to what happened in the Clinton impeachment they always need a live witness issue yes which if they get the for Republicans across over right right then we'll see what happens then and also the the new reporting today is and how will the Democrats agree to a **** for tat as far as witnesses of they get right hold on yeah well they allow hunter Biden especially if they think under by it has nothing to hide you know we'll see how that plays out and let me get to that aspect several key Senate Republicans are insisting there be specific language in shoring of votes on whether to call witnesses and request documents not that witnesses and documents are allowed but just that there's a vote right on it aides to some vulnerable senators and moderate states including senator Susan Collins have said this language is crucial we know Susan Collins probably once witnesses and it sounds like Mitt Romney once that as well I've heard Lamar Alexander Makowski is always one to watch the numbers are close a democratic leadership aide told Axios that they will force votes on subpoenaing key witnesses such as trump's former national security adviser John Bolton acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney Mulvaney senior adviser Robert Blair and top White House budget official Michael Duffy as well as relevant documents at the very least that will for some vulnerable Senate Republicans to cast tough votes lot of politics being played on both sides as to be expected some important numbers to remember Republicans would need fifty one votes to dismiss the case out right that's not gonna happen there's no way you're gonna have vulnerable Republicans like a Susan Collins vote to dismiss the case will not happen Democrats would need fifty one votes to call witnesses that's possible Republicans currently hold a fifty three forty seven majority in the Senate so Democrats would need for Republicans come over to their side to make the numbers work I think they think they have the votes I think they probably have the votes to at the very least John Paul at the very least I think you're gonna want to he he you're gonna have some Republicans are gonna want to hear from the former national security adviser one important note about today's resolution it gives managers authority to submit additional evidence that the Senate that's key because last night impeachment investigators at the house Judiciary Committee new evidence obtained from left partis Giuliani associate indicted by the Southern District of New York harness is gonna appear with Rachel Maddow Alan M. S. N. B. C. in a little bit and he basically says everything he did some of which was not good he did at the direction of the president Rudy Giuliani that's what he's gonna say tonight's in there there's a lot to one pack based on some of what we've learned about partners over the past couple of days so they're certainly going to be a back and forth and debate over what needs to be explored during the course of the Senate trial on the controversial decision by pelo C. to hold the impeachment articles for three weeks this is what she said on ABC's this week this past Sunday she said the tactic has produced a very positive results she said quote we feel that is produced a very positive result in terms of additional emails an unredacted information that's come forward Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed by the Senate I don't think the delay matters all that much in the big scheme of things you had much McConnell who held his ground he was not gonna be bullied by Nancy Pelosi should just didn't have the leverage some new information did come out including reselling the past couple of days although look this stuff it's not going to change the outcome of the trial the only thing that can really make this difficult for Republicans would be of John Bolton testified and have really really damaging information it also have John Bolton testify and he puts forth information favorable to the president and then it's a no brainer we don't know how that's going to go I think Bolton's announcement that he was willing to testify was the most important development that took place during the three weeks the pelo C. held the articles of impeachment what I go back to is the house were rushing through the impeachment process that was a mistake because now they have to push the Senate to do what they should have done I thought they went too fast if this was such a serious matter then you take your time and you do a thorough complete process instead they rushed through the articles of impeachment and then they kind of had to wait to see if more information will come out and then they learn one of the people they should of try to issue a subpoena for John Bolton he was maybe interested now in talking to the Senate it's it's just a mess and plus on top of this all it puts Senate Democrats running for president Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders in closure but some of the top spot she delayed this whole thing policy for three weeks and now at a crucial time for them right before the Iowa caucuses they're gonna be caught up in the Senate trial that's really at the end of the day that's where the biggest impact is the biggest impact is on the democratic primary and how it's gonna fact Iowa if I were those Senate Democrats I would not be thrilled with Nancy Pelosi at the moment your thoughts on the whole I hate you up to this point I have to disagree one thing is this notion that the investigation

Who Is John Eisenberg? Trump Lawyer Moved Ukraine Transcript to Classified Server After Vindman Complained

"And today house democrats have released transcripts of the testimony given by former US s. ambassador to ukraine maria vich and former state department official michael mckinley we will be following that but meanwhile a top lawyer for the national security council counsel john eisenberg is a no show today for a scheduled deposition on capitol hill to find a subpoena an escalating the white house's legal battle with congressional democrats let's eisenberg is a key witness for the impeachment inquiry he reportedly was instrumental and locking down the transcript of president trump's july twenty fifth phone call with ukrainian union president by moving it to top secret server so let's learn more about who eisenberg is and his role in this whole saga tom hamburger is is an investigative political reporter for the washington post and tom last week alexander van men the top ukraine advisor at the white house testified that he listened in on that call where president trump asked the president of ukraine to investigate the biden's and vinson said he raised concerns to the white house's top national security lawyer earlier john eisenberg what was eisenberg's response according to your reporting so what we learned about colonel benjamin's testimony to the a house impeachment investigators is is this he was alarmed as he listened to president trump's call with ukraine's president on july twenty five so unnerved that he went immediately after listening to the call to see john eisenberg the white house legal adviser on national security parity to tell him that what the president did was wrong that it seemed to be violating US policy and seemed to be seeking a personal sola political favors from foreign leader he testified that he went to eisenberg's office because he was alarmed by what he had heard on the call and and the only response that he offered during the meeting right after the call was that the roughed transcript of the call the summary of the call should be placed in an unusual usual spot that is the highly classified top secret vault i'm usually reserved for documents that would reveal sources and methods for US intelligence awesome military operations not for presidential call transcripts in fact we're told it's unheard of or virtually unheard of for for such a call to be placed on a classified server like that so that was one step another was a couple of days after the conversation eisenberg approached vitamin again and said i'd like you not to talk to anybody about what we discussed and what you observed in the call again a by itself perhaps there's an innocuous explanation for this but in combination with a couple of other factors that we're talking about here it seemed seemed to some is though it was part of a pattern or could have been part of a pattern or an effort to conceal or berry the substance of the president's conversation with his counterpart in ukraine you also write that by the time vin men came to eisenberg and late july eisenberg was already familiar with concerns among white house awesome officials about the administration's attempts to pressure ukraine for political purposes what did he know and why is this important to note eisenberg was aware of concerns from the national security staff because a couple of weeks earlier on july ten presidents alinsky had sent a delegation of ukrainian indian officials to the white house to try to shore up relations with the US they couldn't figure out why it seemed there was a delay in getting face as to face meeting set up between the newly elected president and president trump and there was some concerns about whether legally mandated a military aid would be flowing to the ukraine and so they came to the white house these two emissaries end-july ten and had a meeting with the national security council staff but also with three other they're individuals one is a special envoy appointed by president trump mr samland another was energy secretary rick perry and the third was a special on on void to ukraine volcker and in the course of meeting with this group those three led by sandra fund seemed to be pushing a request for assistance in getting information that might be helpful to the president politically the conversation was a bit subtle but it so alarmed armed john bolton in this meeting that they had on july ten that he quickly called it to a close and then he later asked one of his associates the national security advisor sir for ukraine to report what was observed to legal office and so the the place that those bolton advisers went was once again john eisenberg so on july ten there was the first warning of an executive branch effort this time not involving the president personally but involving some of his top appointees to seemingly introduce a question of seeking political favors from the new ukrainian administration as a condition for getting a meeting meeting with president or getting needed aid has eisenberg or his lawyer responded to any of this eisenberg has so so far declined to comment and the white house has declined to comment the response that we have is really the response that is visible today on capitol hill which is where in the impeachment investigators hoped john eisenberg would be sitting to answer questions there will be an empty chair eisenberg is another of several figures at the top level of advisors to the president who are declining to respond to subpoenas and request testify in this impeachment inquiry and so he is one of these figures who is now part of this constitutional drama that we're witnessing between the demands of the legislative branch and the claims of special privilege by the white house in the office of the president and those other folks michael ellis also of the national security council as well as robert blair and brian mccormick of the white house office of management and budget they're all skipping this meeting as you said these meetings what will the the democrats do next now that these folks have decided not to testify so there are others who are facing request to testify who are even more senior one is john bolton the research resigned recently as national security adviser he remember is the guy who is at the top of this national the security establishment and in a sense the buck stops with him he would be a critically important witness and his testimony is considered vital so much to a follow that's tom hamburger investigative political reporter for the washington post tom thank you so much good to be with you
