When you the least favorite child, you get left out of all the family traditions, even the criminal ones basically, this Senate investigation found that the trump campaign's contacts, with Russia, during the two thousand, sixteen election posed a threat to national security, and the interesting thing about this report is that it's bipartisan with policies agree on the facts but.

And joining me now, Senator Angus king of Maine and independent who talk us with the Democrats are also part of the intelligence committee there Senator king. Welcome back to meet the presser. Great to be with Chuck. Well, obviously, a pretty eventful week at the end of it. You have the Justice department if you will in the southern district of New York, pretty explicitly implicating, the president in a crime and Michael Cohen than adding to it saying that his testimony false testimony to congress with something that was known in advanced by some folks in and around the president what are your takeaways from this week's developments, and what congress now do. Well, I think you outlined in your tape there. Many of the questions that are raised by that by those filings, and they're really a separate series of filings. But the Cohen ones are are pretty disturbing. Because the the key phrase to me is directed by individual one, which everyone knows is is President Trump directed by implicates the president in a felony. Now, the president can have some defenses left. I think we should make it clear he could claim it wasn't knowingly or willful. He didn't understand it was his own money. He didn't think it was a violation of campaign finance laws, but it's still a pretty serious matter. But I got say Chuck, I think the filing last week that should be most troubling to the White House weren't the ones made on Friday. But the ones made with regard to general Flynn earlier in the week because number one Robert Mahler felt that his cooperation has been of such an extent that he recommended no jail time kind of. Prosecutorial prosecutorial pardon. If you will nineteen meetings with the with the special counsel and a lot of redacted pieces in the filing that was made last week. That's the one I think that really raises some some very difficult questions that go to the heart of the question of whether there were relationships between the Trump campaign, President Trump and the Russian government during the campaign in two thousand sixteen because Flynn was as they say in Hamilton in the room where it happened. Do you know something we don't give in your access to intelligence your access to Michael Michael Flynn? And obviously the investigation that you're part of in the Senate intelligence committee. I suspect I do know things that you don't. But I'm not everything I'm saying, I'm glad you asked that question is based on public reporting. Not on any inside information that I have for example. I don't know what was redacted from those Flynn documents. So yes, we've had a as, you know, our committee is working quietly and diligently on many of these same issues, but everything that I'm sharing with you is based on a public information. And the the filings that we've seen from these individuals given that the government has is now saying the weight of the government is behind the charges that that that the president helped direct Michael Cohen to commit that crime. And as you said, there are still a defense there for the president he can claim you didn't know it was a crime, or at least a breaking of a campaign finance crime. Do you believe there's already enough to start an impeachment inquiry that doesn't mean he would be impeach?.
