Unredacted Ukraine Documents Reveal Extent of Pentagon's Legal Concerns
"The politics lead now amidst the presidential impeachment involving withheld White House meeting for the President of Ukraine Secretary of State. Mike pompeo cancelled his planned trip to Ukraine bear. He would have met with Ukrainian Presidents Alinsky. The State Department saying Pompeo did so so in order to monitor the violence surrounding Iraqi embassy. This news comes as new reporting from the website just security showing us. What's behind some of those black lines James? In the redacted emails the trump administration was forced to hand over to those requesting it which include warnings from the Pentagon that the hold on military Ukraine rain broke the law and that the decision withhold the aid came right from the top. CNN Sara Murray reports in the face of mornings from the Pentagon on that holding nearly four hundred million dollars in Ukraine could be illegal. A top budget official made it clear. The orders were coming directly from the President Clear Direction from Port Chris to continue to hold Michael Duffy. Atop Office of Management and budget official wrote in an email to Defense Department Comptroller Elaine mccusker on August thirtieth national security focused website just security reviewed the unredacted emails which had previously been released by the trump administration with heavier reductions. The emails reportedly show that weeks. Earlier mccusker flagged concerns that if the hold wasn't lifted soon the Pentagon couldn't guarantee all of the money would reach Ukraine and time. The emails highlight the finger pointing between Owen. Be and the Defense Department over the freeze on Ukraine funds today no MB. Spokesperson said. There was agreement every step of the way between Dod and lawyers who are responsible eligible for working out the details of the hold in line with the president's priorities Defense Department officials disagreed. One said we were always concerned about the ramifications sins of holding the military assistance to Ukraine the new details come as the impeachment proceedings remain in limbo White House. Aides were in touch with Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell's office over the holidays. But when the Senate returns tomorrow McConnell plans to continue business as usual until Nancy Pelosi officially transmits the articles of impeachment. Each mint your house. Democrats seem to be suggesting they'd prefer never to transmit the articles Democratic lawmakers including Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are already seizing on these emails pointing to them as evidence that any kind of fair trial in the Senate is going to need to include documents documents and witnesses from the trump administration. Jake all right Sara Murray. Thanks so much and this is how Nancy Pelosi just responded to these new emails on a tweet trump engaged in unprecedented resonated total obstruction of congress hiding these emails all other documents and his top aides from the American people. His excuse was a phony complain about the house process. What's the excuse now? Why won't trump McConnell allow a fair trial? What do you make that argument Asia? What it is something that they're going to really drill down on these unredacted emails? They really do raise questions because you had ownby general counsel has sent a letter to the GAO so Basically saying that that they had held up this money and that the reason why they held up this money that but it didn't really make a big difference. That dod was telling them that there was no risk that this money wouldn't go out but what you see in. These emails is the direct opposite of what will be said that there was a risk that this money was going to be held up and there was a legal concern and this goes to the heart of what kind of Republicans have been saying that this was just people. This was just the deep state. They just disagreed with policy but the concern that we're being raised. Were not about policy. They were about legal issues. People in the Dod thought that this was illegal that they were withholding this money. I and here's this. One unredacted email from August thirtieth of last year from Michael Duffy. He's Office of Management and budget official to Elaine mccusker. She's a Pentagon comptroller. Roller mentions the quote clear direction from Potus President of the United States to continue to hold this obviously flies right in the face of those who are saying. There's nothing meantime president trump to this and. I don't think that many people actually believed that the number of Publicans elected officials the real people people the the the number who think it was a perfect call and there was nothing here is fairly low. The question is again whether that rises to the point point they want him removed. And that's a real open question. I'm not real sure what we're doing at this point. Are we going to transmit the articles of impeachment. Are we going to Redo the thing in the house because as we have more information or they just asking to be in control of the Senate rules and all of that sounds like Gobbledygook. That's what it sounds like to normal people as well and it will continue to sound like that which is y this is sort of stagnant and has been for quite some time and that part matters one of these I would say yes and no right if Democrats keep it very simple which is the president of the United States should tell the truth. Why are you blocking material evidence because every time in the last couple of weeks we've got new information? It undermines the president so it looks like he's using his power or to protect himself. And why won't you let these people come forward and testify now when we went through the house proceedings. Republicans kept saying well. These people don't have direct knowledge. Okay so now now Schumer saying we want people with direct knowledge. This report gives us more information from security. That gives an actually the New York Times even earlier. This week gives us more information of exactly. What kind of direct knowledge these individuals hat and their participation so I think if Democrat now that they're in this phase of negotiating? I'm sure tomorrow is going to be full of lots of bluster on the Senate floor. That'll be great. However I think this gives Schumer and Pelosi some leverage? It's not just about Mitch McConnell. It's about those senators who are vulnerable honorable right that doesn't move those needle move Nina with those enough Republicans. Four Republican senators. What would be needed for anything at the end of the day? Fifty one votes wins. I haven't seen that yet collins and Murkowski who expressed concerns but then they also say we're concerned with the democratic process or in case she said I'm open to waiting on the witnesses until after the case so if they're not willing to get behind Democrats in this push for firsthand witnesses and documents. It's just not going to happen. Would you look like you're about to say yeah. I'm just. I'm just skeptical. That there's enough enthusiasm to on this issue on the issue of witnesses inside a Senate trial among Americans wants to put enough pressure on a couple of senators for them to go. Oh Yeah we're GONNA change the way we do this. I can hardly and buck McConnell. It's very hard to imagine a president venting about a lot of things on twitter today as want quoted a conservative commentator from the NOCCO saying quote. It seems the Democrats have shot themselves in the foot in one one more way and this president is being persecuted over three years with one investigation after another and and that really plays to his base. It's it's an argument to me because I mean things are not clear cut here. We had the impeachment proceeding. And then it's just kind of as Mayor Catherine some points on hold and we're not really sure what's going to happen and the country is divided right like even though some polls have shown that the majority of the country thinks that he did something wrong that the president president did something wrong. They are divided on what happens next And so I think probably what you're having now is a Democrat trying to decide. What are they what type of pressure they can really put on president trump? He was saying that he wanted a trial but in the past few days. He's kind of been hinting that maybe he doesn't care what happens. I think he wants to be vindicated. I I think he's GonNa want some type of trial but it's not clear how much the Democrats are really going to be able to dictate that. Are they putting the Democrats putting enough pressure directly on Susan Collins. Lisa Murkowski Mitt Romney any other vulnerable Republican with ads with democratic grassroots activists. I mean I haven't seen that I agree with you. I haven't seen enough of it. I think there have been some efforts. It was a little bit challenging. I think during the holidays now that we're back in January. I think it'll be a lot easier and again as long as as they keep it simple. I think there is a very fair argument to be made about the facts and the
U.S. lawmakers head home amid impasse over Trump impeachment trial
"You. You'd think it would be a great gift for President Trump Speaker Pelosi holding onto the articles of impeachment instead of sending them over to the Senate to begin the formal impeachment trial but the president is looking for total exoneration as CNN Sara Murray reports Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell now at stalemate as Congress goes on a holiday holiday break president. Trump's impeachment trial maybe officially stole but behind the scenes house. Democrats are getting ready staff for the the key. House committees are expected to work over the holiday recess consulting with Democratic leadership prepping for a trial as early as the week of January six. But that depends on house speaker speaker. Nancy Pelosi who says she won't send the articles of impeachment to the Senate until parameters for a Senate trial are set when they wrote the constitution. They suspected that it could be a real president. I don't think they suspected that we could have a road. President and a rogue leader in the Senate at the same time in the Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell this afternoon arranged for White House staff to get a lay of the land in the chamber after failing to cut a deal Thursday with minority leader Chuck Schumer on the rules for a trial. We we remain at an impasse. McConnell argued rules from previous impeachments should suffice to believe that the unanimous bipartisan precedent. That was good enough for Oh President Clinton ought to be good enough for president. Trump fair is fair plus Schumer push for an agreement to include testimony from witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton and Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney leader McConnell is plotting the most rush lease thorough and most just unfair impeachment trial in modern history the standoff means lawmakers are leaving Washington with the status of an impeachment trial in limbo until the new year. Aw But if Pelosi's power play was meant to unnerve McConnell he insists it's backfiring other house. Democrats seem to be suggesting. They'd prefer never transmit the articles now despite the acrimony between the two parties today Nancy Pelosi extended an invitation to President trump to deliver the state eight of the Union before a joint session of Congress on February fourth. The President Briana has accepted.
Trump Welcomes a Senate Impeachment Trial
"Welcome to the lead on Jake Tapper. We begin today with the politics. Lead president trump practically daring house. Democrats to impeach him and declaring he welcomes a senate trial across process that could theoretically get underway by Christmas. Now we've now heard and seen twelve witnesses testifying publicly seven hearings over five days while everyone sorting through the testimony. We should note that the most damning evidence came. I'm straight from the Horse's mouths fact. President trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the bites. We know this not only because the rough transcript of the July twentieth call of the White House released but because president trump admitted it publicly. Yeah well I would think that if they were honest about it that SORTA major investigation into the Bison is very simple very simple answer indeed and what was the trump administration willing to do to secure secure this investigation into the bites. Were they willing to hold off a White House meeting which Presidents Alinsky desperately wanted to show US support to his public look into Putin. Well here's US ambassador to the EU. Gordon Zahn want. I know that members of this committee frequently frame. These complicated issues in the form of a simple question was there a quid pro quo as I testified previously with regard to the requested White House call and the White House meeting. The answer is yes. Yes silent says no question it was a quid pro quo. Hey Ukraine you want the White House meeting you need to announce these investigations. Okay now. What about that four hundred million dollars in USA? That Ukraine crane also desperately wanted well acting White House Chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney explained why that was held up. He said so on camera now. He said he did so. So the president because the president wanted an investigation into Ukraine's role in the two thousand sixteen election. The look back to what happened happened in two thousand sixteen certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. That is absolutely yup is a quid. Pro for funding will not flow unless the investigation into into Democratic Server. Happened as well. We do that all the time with with foreign policy and I have news for everybody get over it. There's going to be political influence in foreign policy. So yes there was a quid pro quo on the military aid and the other eight four hundred million dollars worth according to Mulvaney now two points on what Mulvaney said there one. He later tried to unseat what he said. And two veins portraying this as trying to get Ukraine to participate in a Justice Department investigation into two thousand sixteen but that is consistently. I'm not what president trump says he wants. President trump wants a look into a debunked conspiracy theory about Ukraine and the DNC server that US intelligence officials say was hacked by Russia not by Ukraine. Now this is just a fraction of the public evidence though these are facts seldom even acknowledged by the president's defenders. Facts are on our side. The facts are not facts are on the side. The truth is on the president's side the truth truth is the president of the United States by his own. Admission asked the foreign power to launch a major investigation into his political rival. Joe Biden his son and into a debunked conspiracy theory. These are investigations. That would help president trump politically and according to the president's own aides. The president used used a White House meeting and four hundred million taxpayer dollars to get Ukraine to do it now. You can debate whether or not it's criminal. You can debate whether or not it's impeachable impeachable. But you cannot debate whether or not those are the facts a CNN. Sara Murray reports Democrats are preparing to move forward with articles of impeachment. The president trump says bring it on. He's ready for an impeachment trial in the Senate Brinkley. I want to try. The Republican Party party has never been more unified Republican. Lawmakers have been working with the White House to prepare for a possible Senate trial coalescing around the notion that a long exhaustive Austin process may be the best course to protect the president. But I the house will have its say the house. Intelligence Committee and two other panels are crafting a report to serve but as the basis for articles of impeachment. Have the house. Judiciary Committee will consider after Thanksgiving. We have to decide. What does it mean and once we conclude our investigation If we decide that it means that the president should be held accountable. Democratic sources say a busy December is a head filled with public hearings and a likely vote in the House Judiciary Committee before before a full vote to impeach on the House floor which could come before Christmas Day. Potentially making trump the third president in history to be impeached. The House Democrats don't plan to wait for firsthand. Witnesses who have resisted testifying like acting chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo and former national national security adviser John Bolton they keep taking it to court and a no. We're not going to wait until the courts decide that might be information. That's available to the Senate. We can't wait for that because again. It's a technique it's obstruction of justice. Then in January. The impeachment battle is expected addition to the Senate where trump's fate will collide with six Democratic senators looking to unseat him in the next presidential election. I will be there for the trial you swear or but after weeks of hearings impassioned arguments from Democrats. This president believes he is above the law beyond accountability. And in in my view there is nothing more dangerous than unethical president. WHO believes there are above the law? Even Republican has been critical of trump. Don't appear convinced impeachment. It is the remedy an impeachable offense should be compelling overwhelmingly clear and unambiguous. I've not heard evidence proving. The President committed bribery or extortion. Now the White House legal team believes that is one hundred percent in the president's interest to have this public trial in the Senate. Jake it seems like we will soon find out if they are right all right Sarah Murray. Let's discuss with our team here today. Let me start with you because we heard from one democratic more credit congressman Brad Sherman today. Who said that in his? You wouldn't hurt to get more information so I guess the question is do you think. Democrats have made sufficient efficient case. Should they. I mean this idea that they're not gonNA wait for the courts they're not gonNA take too long etc those. Those are not arguments about the substance of of the evidence. Those are arguments about timing and politics show. Should they keep going well. I mean first of all timing and politics do matter so I think that that is something they have to take into consideration. I think think they made a case for anybody who wants to actually look at the case honestly and take the information honestly. I think they made an absolutely airtight case. You know the president it has done something. That's impeachable the Republicans don't want to absorb that information and I actually don't think it would make any difference whether it was John. Paul Moulton was up there overdue. Where did you Liana if there was some how able to even get these people to testify? There is nothing I just really can't think of anything that would make the Republicans change their mind because what has been demonstrated over. The last week is so horrifying and so clear and they can still sit there and say well it's inappropriate. It's so far beyond inappropriate. Every argument that they've made has been completely destroyed so they came out and made all these defenses. That one by one were knocked down They're laugh with no defenses. It's up to just say well it's bad but it's not impeachable. So the argument that she's making here is basically the house. Republicans and Senate Republicans are just not good faith. Operators there's there's no evidence it's going to convince them even if president trump literally were to shoot somebody on fifth avenue and everybody saw it. Yeah that may be true. But I think there's a gap that gives Republicans particularly in the Senate the opening if House Democrats want to make the charge of bribery or extortion. However you put it you need to prove that
Democrats release transcript of Pentagon official's testimony
"Released testimony on a central allegation of the impeachment investigation that president trump withheld military the aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate. Joe Biden Pentagon official revealing what she knew about the decision to freeze the funding and efforts to get Mr Trump to change his mind. More evidence made public less than forty eight hours before historic televised impeachment hearings began. Let's immediately go to our congressional reporter. The Laura Fox Lawrence We now have the testimony of this Pentagon official. Laura Cooper what are we. Learning from the transcript has just been released while Wolf. Learning that Laura Cooper was the deputy assistant secretary of Defense and she really would have been personally involved in what was going on with this military but even she was very concerned. Puzzled told about why this money was being withheld nearly four hundred million dollars in US military assistance of course between the State Department and the Department of Defense and it's very clear here that even she was grappling with congressional investigators behind closed doors to explain how this accord it really underscores wind. Vigils like Mick Mulvaney people who actually had conversations nations with the president and would know what the motives were behind all of this. Why Democrats want to talk to people like moving? Because this was lower cooper's job she handled the defense ends departments portion of this military aid and even she was having a very hard time Wolff explained to congressional investigators what was going on. She basically just said she became came aware of it in July. But there was a lot of concern about whether or not this was even legal because Congress had already appropriated this money wolf. What did she Tell investigators about specific convert con con conversations that she had with embassador Volker for example while she was trying to get to the bottom of why the money was being withheld and she was told by Kurt. Volker that quote an effort was being made that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the government of Ukraine would make that. Would somehow how disavow any interference in the US elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individual involved in election interference. That was about a specific as it got again wolf. It's very clear that behind closed doors. She was having a hard time explaining to congressional investigators. Exactly what happened because even though this was her job this clearly was being kept very retitled around the president of the United States. And his acting. chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney. Glory Interesting Laura Cooper the Deputy Assistant Secretary of defense for Russia Ukraine and Eurasia Asia. Clearly overseeing a lot of this Thanks very much for that Lauren. Fox let's go to a political correspondent. Sara Murray Right now Sarah we have this new testimony the transcript ask him just released as Democrats and Republicans are clearly gearing up for public impeachment hearings on Wednesday. That's right wolf. And obviously we're getting these new details the wall of the broader planning playing out. And I think when you look at this new testimony we get from Laura Cooper really does give us a little bit more sense of what was happening behind the scenes in terms of concerns about this money and whether it was possible to get this aid for Ukraine out the door you know she talks in her testimony about the discussions that were going on in the Defense Department about whether it was evenly goal for and for the president to be holding this money back with it'd already been allocated by Congress you know. She even tells lawmakers at one point that she was there. Were concerns the Defense Defense Department that roughly one hundred million dollars in aid to Ukraine could be at risk so potentially that they wouldn't even be able to get out the door and time and of course we know from our other reporting this is what members of Congress were telling the president privately. They were saying you need to allocate this money. Now you need to get this money out the door otherwise it's not gonNA happen.
Spy chief defends handling of "unprecedented" whistleblower complaint
"Welcome to a special edition of the lead the White House in crisis. I'm jake tapper and what has been a nonstop and truly unprecedented day of news. President trump apparently furious about the whistle blower whose allegations now threatened to bring about his impeachment sources. Tell Mr trump behind closed doors earlier today said he wanted to know who in his administration spoke with the whistle blower and according wanting to the New York Times which first reported the story president trump then said quote because that's close to a spy. You know what we used to do. In the old days when we were smart with spies and treason right we used to handle it a little differently than we do now unquote and apparent reference there to executions as well as a misuse of the term treason season but the president's over the top response comes in context comes after a key moment in the trump impeachment inquiry today we got our first look at the full whistleblower a complaint about the president the one that sparked this whole impeachment investigation this whistle blower sounding the alarm about president trump using his power to get Ukraine aim to interfere in the two thousand twenty election and the White House according to the whistle blower then trying to lock down records of that phone call hiding the transcript in a computer system or only the most sensitive national security information is typically stored today House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it is clear what this sounds like to her. This is a cover up allegations of abuse of power and an ensuing cover up. If would-be quite damning would be extremely unethical and now of course it is up to Congress decide if those acts happened and if they are impeachable today the acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified on Capitol Hill defending the decision to not immediately hand over the whistle blower complaint to Congress as prescribed by law but Maguire would not say whether he spoke to president trump about the matter. Did you ever speak to the president about this complaint my conversations with the president because I'm the director of National Intelligence are privileged acting DNA McGuire added that he thought the whistle blower and the intelligence community inspector inspector general both acted in good faith. Let's go straight to CNN Sara Murray and Sarah. Despite president trump attacking the whistle blowers sources the acting spy. Hi Chief says he believes the whistle blower did all the right things. That's right jake president trump and his Republican allies have questioned the credibility the motives of this whistleblower whistle blower and we saw from the acting deny today as he was pairing these questions from lawmakers he said look it is not my job to investigate this complaint that was up to the inspector general he he found this complaint to be credible any went on to say that he believes both the inspector general and this whistleblower did essentially exactly what you're supposed to do. In this situation. I want to stress that I believe that the whistle blower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout I I have every reason to believe that they have done everything by the book and followed the law so you can see him sort of stepping out there and offering the defense he could he also admitted that he does not know who this whistle blower as he does not want to know who this whistle-blower as though he's committed to maintaining this person's protections and ensuring they're not retaliated against Jake and Sarah the the acting director of National Intelligence McGuire was asked multiple times about his conversations with President trump about this he refused to answer but there was was one part of his conversations with President trump that he was willing to discuss. That's right jake I mean. This is obviously a point of frustration for lawmakers. They wanted to know whether he and the president had ever talked about the complaint. He wouldn't say anything about that but he was asked to. The president want to know who this whistle blower was. Did he want you to find find out. Here's what he said did the president of the United States ask you to find out the identity of the whistle blower. I can say although I would not normally discuss my conversations with the president. I can tell you emphatically no now. He also confirmed that no one else at the White House no one else at the Justice Justice Department has asked him to try to figure out who the whistle blower is but jake you can imagine lawmakers were very skeptical. Today they had a lot of questions for him about why he would have taken a complaint that mentions the president and Attorney General Bill Bar by name and then gone to the White House and the Justice Department indeed Sara Murray thanks so much complaint lays out in detail the whistle blowers concerns concerns the president trump was pushing a foreign power Ukraine to investigate his potential twenty twenty opponent senior Justice correspondent Evan Perez with me now and Evan. What what exactly does the whistle blower say about President Trump's conduct well jake this is the bombshell really in the complaint and it has to do with what exactly the president was up up to when he was making these conversations saying these things to the president of Ukraine part of the complaint says in part I have received information from multiple. US government government officials that the president of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country into twenty twenty US election obviously Jake that is the the center of this controversy now that the White House has released a phone call. Everyone can make a judgment to determine whether or not they believe this is what the president was doing asking. The Ukrainians needs to investigate his likely rival in the twenty twenty election heaven. What does this whistle blower saying the letter about how the White House handled the aftermath of the phone call right end what the whistle blower says that there was an attempt to cover up essentially people at the White House knew that this could be a problem and so what the whistle blower lower says in part is this. I learned from multiple. US officials that senior White House officials have have intervened to lock down all records of the phone call. This is the Ukrainian phone call especially the official word for word transcript of the call that was produce. This set of actions underscored to me that White House officials understood stood the gravity of what transpired in the call and Jake according to this to this whistleblower other phone calls other interactions were handling it in a different manner or this one was handled in a completely separate way and again. That's that's leading to all of the accusations of a cover up all right. Evan Perez thank you so much the New York Times first reported in CNN and has confirmed that president trump earlier today told staff from the United States mission to the United Nations that he wanted to know who provided information to the whistle blower about his call call with Ukrainian president and whoever talked to the whistle blower was quote close to a spy and then he said quote in the old days spies were dealt with differently an apparent allusion to executions. I WANNA bring in C. N. N. White House correspondent bore Sanchez or as how was this met by staffers. Jake many any were stunned. According to The New York Times some actually even laughed this was a crowd of about fifty people according to the reporting of the UN Ambassador Basseterre Kelly Kraft was also in the room for this at least one of these people was taking notes and that's how we know what the president said listen to this quote specifically the president saying unquote. I want to know who's the person who gave the whistle blower the information because that's close to a spy you know what we used to do. In the old days when we were smart about spies and treason right we used to handle it a little differently than we do now. Jake the president making an apparent suggestion that these people should potentially face the death penalty very noteworthy considering the issues circling this president regarding obstruction of justice in the past and the fact that these officials could potentially become witnesses in the very near future also because the acting head of the deny was testifying at the time that this whistle blower acted lawfully and and did the right thing jake. There's certainly going to be questions about witness. Intimidation based on those remarks Boris. We are also just learning that Corey Lewin douse key the president's his former campaign manager is in conversations with the White House about potentially heading up the impeachment team to defend president trump. That's Rijeka the familiar face returning to center stage potentially of this kind of gives you an idea of the scramble behind the scenes at the White House with people close to the president telling CNN that they wonder if the White House has a plan to respond to this impeachment inquiry according to multiple sources Corey Lewandowski had conversations with White House officials about joining warning some kind of team to respond to this inquiry notably Stephanie Grisham the press secretary told CNN there are no plans to form an impeachment response team low. Lohan Dow ski told CNN that he had not spoken directly to president trump but he didn't totally deny the reporting altogether Jacobs right last resort Lewandowski. He was testifying on Capitol Hill among the things they said was that he doesn't see anything wrong with lying to journalists which is essentially the same thing as lying to the American people yeah. Boris thanks so much much more on our breaking news including cluding if the whistle blower will testify before Congress you're watching a special expanded edition of the
