"I'm going to quote here. This court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations unsupported by evidence. He said that it was an attempt to violate the constitution. This is the case against the secretary of state that Rudy Giuliani argued last week. How major a setback for the campaign is this Yeah, We can't put too fine a point on this. The judge was very, very direct here, and he made clear in his opinion. What? What's it steak, and namely, it was millions of votes and Pennsylvania. And what if that's at stake. The Trump campaign would be expected to produce by way of legal argument in evidence, and the judge made clear it's just not there, and that's what we've seen in state after state after state. Where the Trump campaign has raised these kinds of issues. Judges have pushed back and said There's no law and there's no evidence so it's it's another major setback for the Trump campaign. They're running out of places to fight. But the campaign says it will appeal. And there was another case filed there just yesterday by a Pennsylvania congressman, Mike Kelly, who wants to block the state from certifying the election results and have the state Legislature choose electors. This is a tactic they've been trying and other places, too, so they don't seem to be slowing down. No, they're gonna probably keep doing this unless and until some senior Republicans perhaps Mitch McConnell, uh, says to the president, you know enough is enough. But the campaign and the president seems have their eye on January 6. That's an important date when Congress actually gets the results of the Electoral College and and if there are multiple certifications from a particular state, say in Pennsylvania. Governor certifies one slate of electors say for Biden and theoretically, the Legislature certifies another slate of electors say for Trump, then Congress has to decide what to do with it, and that's I think the ultimate focus of the Trump campaign. Well, tell me how that would work. Yeah. So in 18 76. We're going back a ways now. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, but this doesn't happen that often in 18 76. There actually were contested elections in a few states and in those states All right. One state official certified and slate of electors for the Republican one for the Democrat. Congress got it, and there's a provision in the Constitution that's in the 12th amendment that says And it's the president of the Senate who was now Mike Pence. Vice president. Who gets the vote gets the votes and that the vote shall be counted. And there was an argument back then that well, that means the vice president gets to decide these disputes. And it was a big problem. The commission was formed, including Supreme Court justices to sort this all out. Then the deal was made. It was terrible. And then the next year, Congress passed a law. Saying no, no, no. Here's how it works, and it established this elaborate procedure for how to deal with that kind of situation. The problem is, the law is very ambiguous. It's not very well written. But it does provide a procedure for what happens if there are multiple votes or even if the single A slate of electors from a particular state is contested, and notably, it only takes One senator and one member of the House, Toder that procedure, so it's really that the president is focused on them, and we should remind our listeners President Trump met with some lawmakers from Michigan this weekend. Andhra Republican National Committee and the Michigan Republican Party are requesting a 14 day delay by the state Board of Canvassers s so there could be an audit of votes in the area around Detroit. How likely do you see? Um, I am one of the question. I mean, how likely do you see this taking place? Well, so far, it's not working out very well for the president. It's not working out as he hoped. On and and I had raised issues of potential irregularities and fraud several months ago in issues about the ambiguities in this law. Happily, though, the votes in these states are not close enough where those have become Very significant practical issues. I think it's very, very unlikely, meaning it's not going to succeed for the for the president to challenge the votes this way. That's Ross Garber of Tulane Law School professor.

"Ross Garber joins us Now He's a political investigations and election lawyer who teaches at Tulane Law school, and he has mainly represented Republicans. Hi there. Good morning. So that loss in Pennsylvania Federal Judge Matthew Brand, a Republican, wrote scathingly in his dismissal of the case. I'm going to quote here. This court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations unsupported by evidence. He said that it was an attempt to violate the constitution. This is the case against the secretary state that Rudy Giuliani argued last week. How major a setback for the campaign is this Yeah, We can't put too fine a point on this.

They're actually work and tested elections in a few states. And in those states, Uh, one state official certified a slate of electors for the Republican one for the Democrat. Congress. Got it. There's a provision in the Constitution that's in the 12th amendment that says that it's the president of the Senate who was now Mike Pence vice president who gets the vote gets the votes and that the vote shall be counted. And there was an argument back then that well, that means the vice president gets to decide these disputes. And it was a big problem.

President Trump met with some lawmakers from Michigan this weekend. Um and the Republican National Committee and the Michigan Republican Party are requesting a 14 day delay by the state Board of Canvassers s so there could be an audit of votes in the area around Detroit.

"Was listening to Ross Garber who's one of our our analyst at CNN who has been a lawyer for many impeachment trials and he was saying that there's too much focus on the facts and the evidence and not enough on the emotion and maybe even visual aids sound bites for example have been the most compelling maybe things like maps of Ukraine to really hit home what they're talking about when it comes to the dire consequences potential consequences of what the president did yeah no I'm sorry facts and and but facts are not there I guess was not gonna work props emotion but they tried props emotion minute ride googly eyed and he was very emotional man did that work not really not really but of course none of this is really going to work because they just don't have the case Henry Olsen writing over the Washington post makes this place is representative chef argued against the Senate Republicans propose trial rules on Tuesday and I analogize in the impeachment process to a criminal trial as a former federal prosecutor he knows exactly how disingenuous analogy is federal criminal trials are governed by the federal rules of criminal procedure one might argue that the entire analogy falls at the outset as the house Democrats articles of impeachment do not claim the president from committed a crime has articles have been an al tries to an indictment but indictments can only brought if they're sanctioned by a neutral disinterested party nor can a prosecutor obtain evidence under a subpoena on their win anyone with a subpoena to provide testimony or written evidence can challenge that in court which is exactly what president trump has tried to do the list goes on and on is now this is not like a criminal trial and yet we keep hearing madam shifted this needs to be treated like an impartial jury trial of the criminal there which of course it is not bottom line is this thing ain't going anywhere the American people on board we'll be covering it because in the news but frankly I'm not sure why we are covering this because it is about as interesting as the weather the weather is what the weather is and that's about it coming up we got to talk about Robert Downey junior apparently Robert Downey junior is cancelled canceled you see because more than a decade ago he did a movie called tropic thunder where he dressed up as a black person Robert Downey junior being canceled because the left wants to destroy everything good.

Welcome back to the daily. DC impeachment. Watch I'm David. The challenge John King is still with me and stepping up to the microphone is C. N. N. legal analyst and impeachment expert. Ross garber Ross. Always great to have you with us. Thanks for being here. It's great to be here. So what does an impeachment trial without witnesses. Have you ever. Have you ever experienced one of those. Well you know you you were talking about the Clinton trial Just a a little while ago. Oh you know. Let's look at the Clinton trial there. There were depositions closed-door depositions and excerpts of those depositions were played at the trial but there were no actual tool witnesses at the Senate on the Senate floor. I think this trial without witnesses is gonNA look awfully similar. What Clinton trial look like sort of with these deposition witnesses witnesses? I think what you're going to see our arguments by the lawyers. And then probably excerpts of testimony at the house and You know from from I'm from video so I I actually think this trial is going to look a lot like Clinton and what was your reaction when you saw. The John Bolton was yet again raising his hand and saying he had something to offer. Did you Do you see John Bolton as a figure that can add real new pertinent and important information into this case Kenny. Yes Willie I think almost certainly know and let me tell you. Why can't he you know he was the guy who called this a a drug deal He was the guy who referred to Rudy Giuliani as a hand grenade. He had strong feelings about this. He sent Fiona Hill to the lawyers players. We don't know though is what if anything he and trump talked about specifically did he say those kinds of things to trump did trump say. Hey wait a minute. No here's what's really going on. You know bulletin could add. I think a lot there You know think about what would happen if Bolton said yes I brought these issues to the president and the president said No. This is important for my re-election effort that would be huge I have no reason to believe that. That's what actually happened. But his testimony could be important will happen. No it's not gonNA happen I see no scenario where John Bolton is GonNa actually testify about any of this stuff in the Senate. Yeah I was GONNA ask you. Is there any play for the house. Here Bolton statement is very specific he says if subpoenaed by the Senate which he knows the Senate is controlled by Republicans He's is a lifelong Republican staffer. Is there a play here by the house. They've already passed the articles of impeachment. Can they reopened the case where they have to start a new case could they. It should they should they if you were the lawyer advising them just under some oversight capacity say he is publicly said he's willing to answer a subpoena. Is the house different from the Senate. Get your tail in here. She sometimes on some of this stuff if I feel like I'm analyzing professional wrestling because because so like in the real world Even even in the real the world is there for the real down. John Bolton isn't showing up at the House Nancy Pelosi and Adam shift no that subpoena no subpoena enforcement action. No enforcement action. John Bolton is not testifying the house they know that and so you know when you say. Is there a play. You the Bolton move with sort of interesting it's it's a good political move and you know he happens to also be getting ready to sell some books. I think it was a good move you. His He's projecting. Hey Look I've got information. I'm willing to present it in the appropriate forum which is now the United States Senate. He knows that the Senate is very unlikely because they're controlled by Republicans to call him. He also knows that even if even if he were called testified he would probably have to assert executive privilege and in the Senate Senate executive privilege issues are decided by either the chief justice or by the senators and so that's a much more favorable art form forum. He knows even if a word get there. And I don't think it's GonNa for those kinds of discussions and he also knows That that Pelosi and Shifa very unlikely to go and try to subpoena him now because they know it's going to be fruitless effort and all the all the fun stuff. I'll call it. You just talked about direct conversations with the president. The White House could assert privilege and try to block him from testifying correct saying that. That is private advice to the president states protected by privilege. Yes the IT. It would be the president's privilege to assert Could they block doc a willing witness if you if he came and said. Hey look. I'm GONNA testify a WANNA testify. I don't care about any privileges. Could they stop them from doing it. I think probably not but but it is the president's privileged to assert and gives him a reason to not testify most people when you know their executive privilege is asserted by the the president. They honor that privilege login. Don't testify but it would certainly prolong this right. Wouldn't that be litigated. In some way I the privilege issue it would prolong the trial. Well maybe and maybe not so the weight would work in the Senate is the first thing that happens is Let's say they subpoena him. Then he comes in and starts after questions. What's your name John? Bolton was your position about all that stuff all right tell me about conversations you have with the president. I've been instructed. His third executive privilege What would or would probably happen is an objection by the president's Vince Lawyers? Then on that objection. The decision would be made in the first instance by the chief justice to decide whether to make the decision himself or to give it to the Senate. If he makes the decision himself the Senate can still overrule him and so a my sense is even if we go down that far more problem. We're not gonna but even if we were or two it's very unlikely it would get to court because there are a bunch of firewalls before you even get there and were to get to court. You've probably already got a decision in by the chief justice of the majority of the Senate. RFID issue nothing would prevent Mitch McConnell from holding a final vote on impeachment articles even if it was being litigate. Yeah and when when one nerdy procedural issue is very likely wouldn't take jurisdiction over it because of a case called Nixon versus the United States said the Senate gets to set its own trial rules and impeachments another technical question for you everything. We're hearing as John mentioned in the last block is that these articles of impeachment are likely to be transmitted from the House to the Senate sometime this week But there had been conversation Lindsey Graham had suggested the Senate can go ahead and start the trial without them. Your read on that is is that true. Can the senators begin the trial without the articles. Coming over from the House yes. There's a way that they could have done procedurally. What was happening? Is I think Nancy. Nancy Pelosi was just trying to you know buy a little time. She had people coming up to her right after the impeachment. Vote saying. Hey look this is procedural move. That might be able to get some leverage and I think she was able to just say look let. Let's just get out of town. We'll deal with this when we come back. You know you noticed. You didn't see her making any big statements over the break saying. Here's what I'm trying to. I don't think she was trying to accomplish anything At the same time McConnell has been steady on this very steady and very firm that he's content to sit around and wait. But you know who wasn't that chill about it is the president. The president is not very chill about it and so I think chill about most things. But he he he. He didn't want to just relax like like Mitch. Mitch McConnell was I think suggesting he do so I think I think that's why you saw Lindsey Graham. Come out and say well you know we can. We can actually force the issue and Josh Harley came came out with his his his. You know his legislation to to try to do that. None of that is going to become necessary. I think most people were saying that Nancy Pelosi was going to transmit the articles in due time John. Ross raises a good point that I just want to get your take on the president's state of mind right now as he's heading into this impeachment trial what is it what is it. What is the White House From your understanding and reporting different in any way than it has been as he and a different mood or head space than he has been. He is still very worked up. Agitated agitated about this. You saw that in his tweets. When he was in Mar-a-lago you saw that when he was calling friends and allies asking them? Should I trust PAT. Simple only to be my lead attorney. Who else should I put in there? You saw that one to Ross's Ross's point about you know people who trying to dial back a little bit coming out publicly like Lindsey Graham trying to say things to calm the president down We have seen this movie. We don't know what this trial is. It's GonNa look like we don't know exactly what's going to happen but we know the president falls these things very closely and when he doesn't like something he'll let us know other call the Internet That will be unlike in the Clinton impeachment trial. Bill Clinton didn't have twitter on the Internet was still baby In those days and that adds to me a whole other political complication as this place out again to the point earlier if Republicans any any Republican senators short wavering. On this president they will know instantly what he thinks. I think IT A. We'll see as you said I don't know how to play but I think twitter and all all of the constant conversation about it probably means that public opinion isn't going to shift very dramatically on it would be my guess and therefore the scenario you painted out earlier is probably the most likely scenario where we don't see some folding of a few Republicans because it's hard to imagine how public opinions shifts at this point in a dramatic way number number. Keep an eye on Democrats you know. Look at look at mansion. Look at cinema. I think the Democrats are where the action is probably not the Republicans but he make of that. I think that's correct. I uh I do think the Republican senators on the ballot next year and Lamar Alexander. who started as a young aide to Howard Baker from the Clinton impeachment? Does he somehow go to Mitch. McConnell and say we should have witnesses. I don't see any of that happening right now. I just don't of but we live unpredictable time so I would watch them. I think Ross makes an interesting point. The president would be thrilled if a couple of Democrats two three four voted on his side because then he would spend this as a democratic failure. He still has forever the stain of impeachment. That's not going anywhere that's why he's agitated. He knows that John. Ross thank thank you so much for joining me on the daily. DC.

"Have to get started today. We're back with the breaking news. Democrats and Republicans in the House. Battling over final rules for the debate ate during tomorrow's impeachment. Vote is both sides also fight over whether witnesses will appear at an eventual Senate trial. Come January joining me now to discuss constitutional lawyer Royer. Ross garber and former justice department official Elliot Williams Russell me start with you bottom line and you're you're no Maga- hat wearing trump supporter about online. You don't think the the Democrats have made the case effectively. Yeah they haven't and I've been critical of that all along. They have not sold the public on impeachment. You've had constitutional scholars who've done a great job of talking about the constitution. You've got lawyers have done a great job of lawyering which haven't had is a sales pitch to the public now. I'll say during the rules committee. A hearing today I think representative Raskin actually did a decent job of summarizing. The case probably the best I've seen but as we've seen from public opinion polls the public it hasn't been sold since the beginning of this process. And that's key and I think part of the problem is this is what happens when you have an impeachment trial in the age of twitter and instagram. The people want viral videos and explosive splashing moments. And if you just look at the FACS Jake of the transcript of the call. The president's conduct the presence with respect to Mir Giuliani and on down. There's a factual record this establishes that the president violated his oath of office now again. It's dry congressman Raskin as a constitutional law a professor and so he's not going to appear to be splashy individual that's going to sell to the public but that's I think what what we're confronting here. We are in a different media and news information newsgathering climate than I think the nineteen even the nineteen nineties. Were the chairman. The ranking Republican on the House. Judiciary Committee Congressman Collins of Georgia. He's made the point that the Democrats are just on this timetable the calendar and the clock and they've been slaves to that. They want to get this. This done as quickly as possible. And that has undermined their case in terms of going to court to force the White House to release documents and witnesses in terms of getting other witnesses. Do you agree with that is that is that your main contention with how they've done it. No I think sort of in a prototypical impeachment. It should be something something that just shocks the conscience that the public sees it says holy cow. This public official can't continue to Sir for another day. That's that's the prototypes. I don't think think impeachment needs to or should go on for a long time having said that you know these are issues that it may be taking a while for the public to sort of wrap their heads around. It's not there I mean I it's it's I think one of the two either. The case isn't there or the Democrats just haven't done enough to build the case and and I think that's that's what it boils down to Elliott Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority leader making the same basic argument about how Democrats really didn't exhaust this before voting to impeach speech. Tomorrow take a listen chairman. Adam ship and house. Democrats actively decided not to go to court mark and pursue potentially useful witnesses because they didn't want to wait for due process so now Democratic leader would apparently like our chamber to do House Democrats homework for them and wants to volunteer their time and energy on a fishing fishing tradition response. He's as good an actor as he has a politician. Jake honestly this is all theater and somehow the majority already leaders sudden belief in process. What would be different? And that's the question that ought to be asked the majority leader if this had played out when he suddenly we had this gone through. The court suddenly decided that all these witnesses appear in the Senate or the House that the house is process was properly conducted. Its He's playing a role all and he's doing it quite effective. I would like to point out that it is worth noting. Rick Gates the President's deputy campaign manager in two thousand sixteen was sentenced today at the forty five days in jail. Three Years Probation Gates Gates is one of six of president. Trump's associates convicted of federal crimes. The President of course. Republicans say cares deeply about corruption Ross garber Elliot Williams. James Thank you so much for your time rudy. Giuliani with nonstop admissions. That are music to the ears of Democrats. That's next we're back with our world lead president trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told. CNN today that the president is very supportive of his efforts to dig up dirt on on the Biden's in Ukraine and the two are on the same page. He says but it is important to remember where Giuliani is getting much of his information in Ukraine from two former more Ukrainian prosecutors WHO experts formerly and currently in the trump administration of called not credible and corrupt. Here's how the former US special envoy to Ukraine described. The one of these men Yuri Zenko. I told Mr Giuliani that. In my view the prosecutor general with whom he had been speaking Mr Lutsenko it was not credible and was acting in a self serving capacity and then there is this exchange with former. US Ambassador to Ukraine. Maria von Bitch about a different Giuliani source. Victor Shokhin in fact did Giuliani tried to overturn a decision that you participated in to deny Shokhin visa. Yes that is what I was told and that denial was based on Mr Shokhin's corruption. Yes that's true as CNN Sara. Murray reports are US down the list of Republicans questioning exactly what Mr Giuliani is. Doing is growing rudy. Giuliani is still running his own game. Aim of diplomacy aiming to dig up dirt on Democrats in Ukraine in a phone interview with CNN. Giuliani said. President trump was quote very supportive of his efforts in Ukraine collections..

Times is reporting that the Justice Department Inspector General's upcoming report on the origins of the Russia investigation will. We'll show that this is not true and they were spying in my campaign and it went right up to the top and everybody knows it. Nothing terrifies congrats. More than the fact that all of their spine spying d-actually spider my campaign. Can you believe Bay spied in my campaign campaign. It's as simple as that. It's so illegal is probably the biggest political scandal history. They got caught doing it the Times reporting tonight that there simply we no evidence at the FBI tried to place undercover agents inside the trump campaign out front now Greg brower former FBI assistant director. Juliet Kayem former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and Ross garber CNN legal analysts. Welcome all of you greg. Let me begin with you. What significance of this report? Finding that there was in fact. No Oh spying. Well frankly beyond. It's not surprising to those of us who were at the FBI or at DOJ. At the time I think For for the most part the president's allegations nations and accusations at the time were seen as absurd and irresponsible and it appears as though according to the reporting that this. Org report will confirm that there was no spying. There was no Misconduct at the senior levels of DOJ or the FBI. There was no political Moat politically motivated evaded. Efforts to get the president is simply didn't happen but again Those who know how the FBI and DOJ works Knew that that wouldn't be the case. Yes at the outset and we'll know more wants. This report officially does come out but Ross. We know the president wasn't the only one promoting these theories in fact the attorney general. WHOA said similar things? Righty actually want an expedition to Europe looking for answers here. And here's what he said. Before there was spying did occur. Her spying did occur and then he we know he double down an interview with the Wall Street Journal saying that government power was used to spy on American MM citizens so does this report hurt. The attorney general as well in May get ready for crossfire hurricane of spin here it's Artie started. But we're going to see it later. It's going to be interesting to see what the Attorney General says about this. What are you could say is look? I heard these issues. The president raise them and so we got to the bottom of it for the good of the American people. We suss it out and it turns out there's no basis for it. That could be what he says. It could also be the case that he says well. Actually it depends on how you define spying. Maybe there was spying sort of but not the kind of spying that we all think of his spying. It's going to be interesting for the reason you mentioned the see. How the Attorney General? Oh handles it. But most people interpreted of that invalidity right and and Juliette. I WanNA bring you one. Because of course we all remember the series of tweets early on in the presidency in March of two thousand seventeen. Greg I want. Let me turn to you. We remember those tweets. where the president accused President Obama of wiretapping? And he in fact said a terrible just found out that Obama had my wiretapped and trump tower just before the victory. Nothing found this is McCarthyism. How Low oh has President Obama gone to tap my phone during the very sacred election process? This is Nixon Watergate bad or sick guy. This was early early in on enough in the presidency where it was still shocking when you saw a tweet like this from the president does this categorically put this allegation to arrest now. We'll of course we haven't seen the report but if the reporting by the times and the post others is correct yes. Those kinds of allegations nations were shocking at the time Not Not so much that people who know how the FBI and the DOJ Work were were shocked at that could have been happening but the shock was about the fact that the president so could so could could so cavalierly be making such allegations like like that and so yeah they were hard to believe If not completely unbelievable at the time and it appears as though this report by the independent orgy is going to finally put them to rest. I mean that that allegation itself was so alarming that President Obama who has.

"Night of this historic and fast moving impeachment inquiry in a few minutes it's we'll be talking with Ross Garber C. N. N. legal analyst who has extensive experience litigating impeachment charges but I I'm joined by my colleague CNN reporter and producer Marshall Cohen who is one of our lead reporters on this impeachment inquiry Marshall Thank you so much for coming back to the podcast could be here so Marshall well obviously in fact on yesterday's Podcast Zach Wolf was here and he's like talking about you never know when some of these bit players are going to come out and be big huge horten developments all of a sudden we learned today that the witness up on Capitol Hill who I just WanNa say is the firm I witness on two fronts one currently still working in the White House that's right to on the July twenty fifth phone call even more important right so so those two things are I is what we have in I think his rank as lieutenant colonel of Inman who is up on the hill fascinating backstory we'll get to in a moment but Marshall tell us what we know about what he is telling investigators today it's it's incredible it really is and and Zach totally right you know Alexander of Indian is not a household name and very few people in Washington probably could pointed his exact identity or his role before this inquiry so he was on the call and he told lawmakers earlier today that he was so concerned by what he heard on that call that he reported it to his bosses and to a lawyer basically call the lawyer do we know what his concerns were about what can you say that he heard on that we do and I'll give you a quote here from the testimony he said that quote outside influencers thinking of Giuliani here were pushing a false narrative about you crane that was harmful to US government policy and undermining US government policy and that during the phone call the president picked up on some of those false narratives about the ambassador that was ousted about Burris Ma and the Biden's things like that so then it's is literally his job to help steer US policy official government policy regarding Ukraine that's literally this guy's job like he He is the expert on the National Security Council dealing with Ukraine portfolio that's correct yeah and he's sitting there saying hold on a minute what what is going there are these there are these I'm I'm part of the chain of command we set the policy we coordinate with state we coordinate with the Pentagon we're talking to the White House Etcetera Etcetera and Giuliani and his now indicted associates Parnasse and from you know there there's stirring up some stuff and that was ringing the alarm old Colonel Edmon the other thing that I thought is particularly interesting may be particularly important here is that the July twenty fifth phone call was not the first occurrence of a red flag or an alarm bell going off for the expert on the NFC it's also this July tenth meeting that we've been hearing about is that not the case you're totally right and it's it's frankly you know I I think they're adding some meat on the bones here you know this whole impeachment increase started with the call the call trump says it was perfect call Democrats say it was almost a treasonous call right it's so much bigger than the call so this meeting July tenth the new Ukrainian President Vladimir Zilenski his top national security advisor comes to Washington to get to know the people in the White House and to try to secure a date for the face to face the first face-to-face meeting between trump alinsky and according to Vince testimony during that meeting the US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sunland a trump appointee brought up the need that Ukraine would need to deliver specific investigations I if they wanted to secure that meeting at the White House Donald Trump and those investigations sunland later told Vin men and others were talking about Berea when you say later you mean that day correct daily a day debrief meeting that went on after the meeting yeah so once the Ukrainian guy was out right they all huddled the Americans huddled and said okay basically what the Hell's going what the hell was that and and silent says well you know we're talking about Biden's Burris MMA and getting to the bottom of the twenty sixteen election and would have been do when he heard that he went lawyer so he's gone to the lawyer he went to the lawyer after that July tenth incident he went to a lawyer again after the July twenty fifth phone call and he expressed concerns so here's the question I have for you the president keep saying where is the whistle blower whereas the whistle blower is the whistle blower pertinent anymore to this because now we have a an on the record account here under oath of from somebody who was on the call and part of the lead up to that call I mean objectively I would say no in most senses no the whistle blower is not that important literally I guess the idea of the definition of a whistle blower is somebody who sees something wrong and raises the red flag they plant a flag in the sand and say I'm seeing something wrong well in this case I don't know that this person saw something wrong as much as heard from other people I saw I haven't I've learned things that are that I think are wrong please investigate and Democrats on the hill are investigating it just seems that whole that whole talking point from the White House about not a firsthand account is clearly out the window now that's over and so I I do want to be before we take a break do you want to sort of delve into the political fallout of the of this because we have heard even from CNN's own contributor Sean Duffy former Republican congressman this morning we've heard some Republicans some Fox News host others perhaps the president himself which I'll get to in a moment question VIN means credentials here I'll read the president's tweet here suppose really according to the corrupt media the Ukraine call quote concerned unquote today's never-trumper witness he calls this guy never trumper I don't know how the president knows anything about vitamins politics was he on the same call that I was can't be possible please ask him to read the transcript of the call which so Duffy went on to sort of question of women's loyalties because he was born in an area of the Soviet Union that is now Ukraine and came to the United States at the age of three maybe with his twin brother and his family to get out of Ukraine obviously a lieutenant colonel purple heart recipient this is this is somebody who is nothing short of a Patriot in American hero which by the way I don't want people to think all Republicans are on the Donald Trump Sean Duffy Fox talking points I want you to hear congresswoman Liz Cheney this morning and talking to the press after a House Republican conference meeting now I also want to say a word about something else that's been going on over the course of the last several hours and last night which I think is also shameful and that is questioning the patriotism questioning the dedication to country of people like Mr von men Lieutenant Colonel Ben men who will becoming today and others who have testified I think that we need to show that we are better than that as a nation their their patriotism their love of country we're talking about decorated veterans who have served this nation but their lives on the line and it is shameful to question their patriotism their love of this nation and we should not be involved in that process that's one of the president trump's top allies in Congress actually not always on foreign policy I understand but but a top ally who's calling his behavior and some of his compatriots behavior shameful what do you make of this Chaney had really taken aback by the fact that she mentioned Colonel Vin by name you know so often in recent years when you do see President Republicans take that rare step of rebuking Donald Trump They often do it in very you know shrouded language that sort of just put their finger on the issue for like a half second then take it away and but this was a very direct condemnation of exactly what we've seen in the last twenty four Yeah I mean that's a strong term shameful look I think any fair person would agree that it is pretty shameful and and there's a to to what America is about it was a it was comforting actually hear Liz Cheney a high ranking Republican Congress brush that back a bit okay Marshall Stay.

"Twenty four minutes before the hour Friday morning the end of the work week for many of us here on first light as well so yesterday was just one of those days could go down in history as a turning point because now after that the hearing with the whistle blower on Capitol Hill two hearings when in the house one in the Senate the one in the Senate behind closed doors house Democrats seem to feel that they found their smoking telephone call and so for the first time there's a majority of the house of course it all Democrat votes between maybe about two twenty five to two thirty in the only need to eighteen to to cause an impeachment to go forward and if they decide that they're going to vote the to impeach the president and then as everybody expects it would go to the United States Senate but what happens there is much more up in the air than you might think so we we need to find out about this and it was down so that we know what's going to be coming up and then you can tell your friends you know make make barbets and say so it goes to the Senate is going to be trial right and then you maybe can win some money as we are joined now by Ross Garber who is a professor of constitutional law and other kinds of law at Tulane University he knows a lot about this so thanks for joining us this morning on first light professor. I'm happy to be here so you apparently know enough about impeachment that you can help us out with this question now we've always assumed and it had been the case in the past when the president has been impeached it has gone to the Senate for trial. I thought that when the president nominates a Supreme Court justice that the Senate is supposed to conduct a confirmation process that didn't happen and now there's some doubt as to what actually might happen in the Senate if for instance Mitch McConnell says you know what I don't want to do that so what what is the legality of this what's in the constitution how does this work. is that the Senate is the sole Trier of the impeachment it's up to the Senate and to the Senate actually gets to set the rules of the Supreme Court has ratified that there is no court that's gonna review how the Senate performs its trial. the court is going to look over the Senate shoulders the Senate gets to decide how the trial goes with the procedures are what the rules are and I think it's pretty well accepted that the Senate can decide could not even hold the trial at all thanks in the bill Clinton's impeachment and removal proceedings of this and that there was a motion to dismiss that was filed by Clinton's lawyers and considered by the Senate and so that is a possibility here if this case gets to the Senate the Senate could decide to dismiss the charges without holding a trial now when you say a motion to dismiss that sounds like something that would actually technically be considered part of a trial yeah but it but it's not because people think about a trial with the think about or witnesses testifying. and presenting evidence documents and the triers of fact in this case senators sitting around and and listening to the testimony and considering the evidence and so by motion to dismiss it was sort of short circuits that process where essentially the senators would say you know we don't even think there's an off here. your evidence and go through the whole trial procedure I think most people agree that that's within the Senate's right to do if they decide to do that so the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is the presiding person in the chamber so would be up to the Chief Justice to decide to dismiss. that's not the traditional wall with the Chief Justice in. presidential impeachment trials but we only had two and so it's it's hard to say it's more likely though that it would be the senators themselves with the side. whether to dismiss the charges and not even have a trial or have a trial so what this whole process looks like it's very much up to the Senate which is you know is controlled by Republicans at this point law professor Ross Garber of Tulane University is with us this morning on first light so if there is a a motion to dismiss would have to be done by a photo and if so what would carry a majority two thirds. we wouldn't have to be compared to probably would just be a majority of the Senate that we have to decide to. the card is in the whole trial the other thing that could happen is that the Senate decides to. not hold proceedings at all. no way to force the Senate actually do anything in this regard so the way it would work is the house would present articles of impeachment the Senate and the Senate could just sit on those articles and not do anything at all the whole trial not even dismissed the charge I think that's unlikely. wouldn't look very good. conceivably that's what the Senate could do no one can force the Senate actually hold the trial so why would the founding fathers leave all this ambiguity in this procedure which just opens up the possibilities of all kinds of political mischief the the Democrats might think well you know if the Republicans just staff we send this over there and they do nothing and then we were stuck we're done with our investigations we can't make headlines we can't continue to investigator made points we're we're we're just stuck in neutral and if they fear that that's going to happen they could just stretch this on run out the clock and continue on with their impeachment enquiring right through the election season and continue to score points without having to actually prove it in a trial and the Republicans might say well you know what that we can just dismiss it out of hand and and remove this as a campaign issue or we can be in a rush it through. get a verdict have hips and basically allowing that the Republicans to say well he's been acquitted he's innocent so does this too much mischief involved here politics how did the founding fathers not not done realize that actually. framers actually structured the way they did for a reason they didn't want to take the politics out of the impeachment removal process the notion was power. location in the office. the politics involved in. impeaching and removing the public official also in part because it provides for accountability back to the people in keeping this is not a strictly legal process in fact it's mostly a political process. legal and political life in addition to teaching about impeachment for impeachment so you're probably defended for impeachment for and any other lawyer ever hash. always a faerie faery political process there's no way to take the politics out of it and the framers. it's hard to see who benefits from any of this I I don't see the Democrats benefiting. each meant and I don't see the Republicans benefit by playing around with it it seems like an awful situation where both sides are kind of stuck there so it'll be very very interesting to see how this works out but I know right now there are a lot of people saying I had no idea and they're shocked by what they are probably probably shocked by what they're hearing from you professor. buckle up I think they're gonna be a lot more shocks the common this is a very very rare process hasn't happened often in our history and there are very few power tools and so I think the listener should probably be prepared for more surprises well we've been talking with a professor Ross Garber of Tulane University where he teaches law thanks for being with us this morning at first light thanks for having sixteen before

"But she just had a couple of arguments. Also that if it were Trump, we would have heard about it, it would elite somehow because his White House is just ridiculous. So that's kind of what I wanted to talk to you about who you think it is. Well, I okay, let's say there is one person who doesn't leak in the White House who I think about a lot. And he he doesn't because he doesn't leak we don't talk about him because he's not one of the Carney's and he's Emmett teeth lab the fourth. Acting White House counsel and also the president's defense impeachment defense attorney if it comes to that, and he's a very different sort than Guiliani Guiliani if Abramson and others to be believed are basically campaign flack people for Trump trying to keep him in office where he presumably is more difficult to indict so one is he part of the story. And I think we reported on this to that. When was it John Kelly was subpoenaed and an Emmet flood was like, no, you're going to have to prove that you have to talk to Kelly, and then Muller apparently proved it because Kelly did go and talk to Muller. Yes. This is like a very procedure list thing to do. That's like that sounds like flood like he's going to. I don't know if you've had Ross Garber on your show, but he's sort of the only other committed impeachment lawyer 'cause impeachment laws. You don't you don't do cook defenses for impeachments, very often. You know, obviously, we haven't had many presidents so rest of governors impeachments. And his point is that where someone like Giuliani either or either works for no money, and it's just the flash. And he's you know, he's a criminal criminal defense. Attorney like Alan Dershowitz or or the late Robert Shapiro just wearing fancy suits doing that where the impeachment defense attorney works for the people. He's taxpayer-funded. He his job is to defend the executive branch and the White House against threats to its integrity. And it's it's at least twenty five percent possible. But flood sees the threat to the integrity of the White House. Looking ahead. Wondering is it a greater black guy for the country to have our presidents super former president and supermax or to have him get off in some way? And I honestly don't know. Yeah. I don't know. What's because we have to think about constantly that whatever we do. Now is going to set a precedent for any of this kind of behavior in the future. Yeah. I mean it sends such we're either way it's a signal. I mean, sometimes I think that it just would be devastating to our sense of Justice not to have someone behind bars and not to have him behind bars on the other hand, it is it would be a new kind of humiliation visited on our country that we have to have.
