Fired State watchdog was probing Saudi arms sale, top Democrat says
"House Democrats are launching an investigation into the firing of another inspector general this time at the state department president trump dismissing Steve clinic late last Friday after secretary of state Mike Pompeii asked him to they've been reports for awhile of grumbling in the department about Pantera using taxpayer funds for personal services the state department watchdog was reportedly looking into those complaints NPR diplomatic correspondent Michele Kelemen is here and Michele so counting up in the past six weeks trump fired the intelligence community I G. the acting defense department I. G. and the acting health and Human Services IG a pattern for perhaps your sense of what's going on while Democrats are clearly seen a pattern and they're looking for ways now to strengthen the protections four inspector generals there been a few Republicans expressing concern senator Mitt Romney for instance over the weekends and the firing of multiple inspectors general is unprecedented and a threat to accountable democracy Susan Collins tweeted over the weekend that the president had not provided the kind of justification for the removal of the state department's IG as required by law that she helped author but for the most part Republicans have been pretty silent about this trend yeah well and we've known for a while that there were grumblings as we said about Mike Pompeo the secretary of state attention to using taxpayer money for personal purposes now reports that when it was looking into this what can you tell us about what he was looking at well we're hearing from Democrats on the hill that about a couple of things that he was investigating there's a report today from The Washington Post enough source did confirm it for me that the inspector general had mostly completed an investigation into the secretary's controversial decision to get around opposition in Congress and green light billions of dollars in arms sales to the Saudis he had this emergency declaration that raised a lot of eyebrows last year and the I. G. was looking into that democratic sources also say that the I. G. was looking into the misuse of a political appointee basically that Pompey had a U. S. government employee of do personal errands for him and for his wife things like picking up the dog at the groomers or things like that when I ask the inspector general's office over the weekend I was told that they can't confirm or deny any particular investigation and the state department has refused to comment on any of that moon what about other members of the state department what are your sources telling you about their thoughts about this well I I think there were you know Lynn it was a pretty well respected guy and they're kind of it some people said they were kind of numb at this point there is definitely a concern last year CNN did this whole report about some security agents feeling like they've become over eats with guns there were a lot of concerns last year that I heard about when that Mrs Fontana was on trips with the secretary so that these these have been things that have been growing yeah well and as you said the Democrats has certainly been vocal about this year's the speaker Nancy Pelosi on face the nation yesterday the president has the right to fire any federal employee but the fact is if it looks like it's in retaliation for something that the attorney the I. G. the inspector general is doing that could be unlawful so what is your sense of repercussions if upon pale of war you know president trump is as follows he just said he has the right to fire federal employees well the Democrats on the hill have opened an investigation they're asking for the state department to hold any documents that they have that are related to this they need to find out if it was in retaliation for any of these issues that that Steve when I had been investigating I'd also say that you know it's not that he was he was very controversial I mean he played kind of a minor role in the whole impeachment saga but there were a couple of IG reports that that he had done recently that sort of angered top management there were things about personnel matters dealing with the trump administration officials retaliating against those who they call Obama holdovers at the department one report led to the resignation of an Assistant Secretary of state for international organizations and another was critical of one of Pompey's top aides Iran guy Brian hook so you know if if it was in retaliation for any of these things then that could be a problem for them we'll see how this unfolds NPR diplomatic correspondent Michele Kelemen thanks as always sure thank thank

Doug Jones's impeachment vote was more courageous than Romney's
"Senator. Doug Jones of Alabama casts. Perhaps the most important vote of his Senate career. He voted to convict president trump on both articles of impeachment. It could cost him his seat this November but the man elect to fill jeff sessions. Seat doesn't care. He says it was the right thing to do. Senator Jones. Thank you for coming back to the PODCAST. No my pleasure enjoyed it last time. And I'm sure I will this time. Well you have had a a momentous few few weeks and by that I mean your vote on both articles of impeachment to convict President Trump and in your speech and on the floor of the Senate you said there will be so there were so many that will simply look at what I'm doing today and say it is a profile in courage it is not it is simply a matter of right and wrong were doing right is not a courageous act. It is simply following your oath and I bring up that quote because it was it was stirring during And cheered it on in a tweet but President Trump won Alabama by twenty eight points in two thousand sixteen eighteen and according to the morning console poll that I just looked at in Jan January his approval rating is sixty percent. Yeah I believe that. By the way the highest in the country. You don't believe that I've seen a number of different things. I don't believe it's not too far off but I do believe it's lower lower than that and what that concept poll also missing out a little bit is negatives have been an gradually growing so that gap is narrowing a considerably. Well I bring I bring up. The election totals in that particular poll result to ask it just a blunt question. Did your vote to convict on the two articles of impeachment. Seal your defeat this November. I don't think so. I not not by any stretch I think that people you know an Alabama they're gonNA it's one thing to support a president and their policies it's another thing to simply the acknowledged right from wrong and people in Alabama hard working folks. They know the difference between right and wrong. They may disagree with whether or not What what he did rose to the level of impeachment? But I don't think it seals the deal whatsoever. I think people are going to be looking at my record. They're going to see a record for people in Alabama on kitchen table issues just like ran in ran on. And that's the message that we're going to get across and the other thing too is I think you know people are going to see that. Vote as someone who had a lot of I put a lot of time minute. Put a lot of thought in and I really. This was an analysis that I did and at the end of the day. I came down and I'm going to be able to explain that I'll tell you Jonathan. I'll just candidly ever ran into A business leader and I won't go into detail so that people can't really identifying but he's I've known him for a long time he's a Republican business leader from an Alabama in Birmingham He was on the plane with me yesterday. And as we were getting off waited the jetway and he walked me down the jetway and he said Doug he said I just really admire you for voting your convictions and I wanNA help you in the campaign pain and got the address to send a check for the campaign. And I think there's going to be a lot of that in Alabama We'll see how it goes. How hard was was it to make that decision? Because I alluded to the fact that I sent out a tweet after watching your your speech. And everyone's given a lot of plaudits to Senator Senator Mitt Romney who should and they should that because he's a republican because he was the the twenty twelve Republican presidential nominee. But he's also from Utah and he's also wealthy and he's someone for he doesn't need this job and he. It does not stand the possibility of losing his seat because of that. Vote and as you said in your speech you know people say what you've done is profiling courage but yours was the the the more courageous vote because you put your career on the line for this vote. How hard was it to make this decision? It let me answer it this way. Okay because I I've said this to people over the last few days. It was not hard from a political standpoint because I honest to God did not consider it from a political standpoint. Okay I mean I'm sixty five years old. I've only been senator for three of those sixty five years. Okay I was a lawyer so this is you know I'm I'm I'm not that career politician that put that calculation in there like that but what I am is a lawyer and I've been trained as a lawyer and I've been trained to do the right thing I've been and trained to try to put the best foot forward for the constitution and what the founders I thought said and what they believed in the and try to put the pieces of that puzzle together so the difficulty of this of this vote had nothing to do with politics having said that it was still a difficult vote. I mean you know. I'm had to make a decision that to cast a vote to remove the president of the United States duly elected. Despite what a lot of people may say around all that he was duly elected he's GonNa be on the ballot. This was a weighty constitutional issue and so when I said that in by the way the quote that you gave was not something that I had prepared you know after we made the announcement which was about thirty minutes before I went to the floor. You know I started getting text messages. I saw twitter blowing up and people saying that in whatever and I'm sitting in the in the chamber listening to Kamla and listening listening to Maggie Hassen and I'm thinking about this and I realized you know people are saying things like that and I'm sitting at John. F Kennedy's desk now. I already have the quote quote from Robert Kennedy and so I'm thinking you know this is just Naronha. Won't people to think that I'm some. You know super courageous just got. I'm just doing the right thing. And so that that was something that I just inserted ad libbed on my own because really believed it and I'd been saying it's been consistent assistant with what I've said from the very beginning. I'M GONNA follow my oath both to defend the constitution and to do impartial justice right in that second oath to do impartial justice. Was this specific. Oath that you that all senators had to write to swear to as a part of the impeachment impeachment trial impeachment process. Did I read correctly. You took hundreds of pages of notes math four hundred thirty close to them. I think handwritten or you know I. They were all handwritten written. What were you? What were you noting? Well I was taking. It was almost like a stenographer. I mean when I'm in a trial my my my my training is a trial lawyer is to take notes because I am most of my clients never had the money to do like real time transcripts in those days as and so. I'm writing as fast as I can so that I can go in and I can look. I can prepare for cross examination or do whatever I need to do. And I've got two different different kind of pins. I got a blue pin because always right and blue and I got my blue Pimm it. I got up. Read one sitting over here because as I'm writing is I'm listening. Something's going to pop in my brain and going to put a star under and I'm going to outline and they wanNA ride in the margin question or a comment or something like that and so. That is my way of just reinforcing. Being the facts I wanted to know those fact. I had a pretty good handle on those with all the research and that we did leading up to this because we started working on this before it became an impeachment inquiry. We started working on this. And so that's what I did. It was just one of those things to try to make sure that because at the end of the day on new however voted I was. I'm going to be called on to justify that vote and I wanted to be able factually to to make that argument argumentatively to make the argument and the best way to do that is to write it. Write it write it write it. Write it and not just sitting there listening and start daydream enough
Trump tells Utah governor about Romney: 'You keep him. We don't want him.'
"Our politics lead today. President trump can't quit earlier today. The president spoke with the nation's governors. And and here's what he had to say to Utah Governor Gary Herbert About Utah. Senator Mitt Romney the lone Republican in the Senate who voted to remove the president. How's it been around me? The president trump on his vengeance store after getting acquitted and firing too key impeachment witnesses from their administration jobs as well as the brother of one of the witnesses and as C. N. N.'s Kaelin Collins reports for us. Now the president may just be getting warmed up today. The White House is standing in by the abrupt firing of two key. Witnesses in the impeachment inquiry they fired. They removed back to their original jobs. President trump has continued his streak of vengeance. Claiming lieutenant colonel. Alex deserved to be fired because of poor performance reviews while on the National Security Council though his attorneys called that obviously Asli False. CNN has learned before they were let go both Vin and anywhere Basseterre. Gordon Sunland or quietly planning to leave the administration. The trump didn't want them going quietly and fired them instead. Officials still claim it wasn't retaliation the president wants to retaliate. Because of the testimony testimony happened was in November and December. It's quite a while ago now in light of the firings Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Today. Call the nation's inspectors general to protect whistleblowers whistle blowers telling the Pentagon vin was viciously attacked for bravely stepping forward. To tell the truth. The president is still lashing out at those he can't fire. WE'RE CONTINUING HIS ONSLAUGHT AGAINST UTAH. Senator Mitt Romney who broke with the Party and voted for impeachment. Romi you it today. Trump also touted his administration's four point eight trillion dollar budget proposal that features major cuts in eligibility changes in federal safety net programs like Medicaid food stamps and disability claims while boosting military spending. We're we're going to have a very very good budget with a very powerful military budget because we have no choice award now of course take. That budget is largely meaningless. It's a political. Political document is not actually going to go anywhere but this all comes as the president is going to have his first rally here in New Hampshire tonight since he was acquitted. Of course this is the first state that actually gave the President of Big Victory Twenty sixteen and we're being told by officials to expect him to make impeachment a cornerstone of his twenty twenty pitch to voters and expect him Antonin unrestrained tonight take all right Kaelin Collins with the wings live and let die playing behind her. Thank you so much. Let's chat about this so to Lou There is this push this spin by trump people that oh no. He didn't fire anybody. They were on their way out anyway but right after president trump fired sunland and had been reassigned from the National Security Council son. Donald trump junior tweeted this. Allow me a moment to thank and this may be a bit of a surprise. Adam Schiff were it not for his crack track investigative skills president trump might have had a tough time on our thing who all needed to be fired. Thanks Adam so I mean it's pretty clear what this was all about. Yeah yeah this is sort of a trump to step where he tweets something that maybe a little bit ambiguous that most people know what he's talking about and then his administration officials come out and say no he's not actually he doesn't actually mean that he means means something different and then eventually either the president or someone close to them spills the beans and says actually yeah. This is what I meant and I think it's pretty clear to anyone who's watching is that the president was waiting for his acquittal. Quito to get rid of and to target people he thought were disloyal. Even targeting the brother of a witness who no one in the White House and said why he was march out of the White House. The brother of Alexander intervenign someone who is not testifying was not part of this Ukraine scandal in any major way He was marched out of the White House. Unceremonious leave though. He's a veteran as well. So this is clear that the president is on a revenge tour and as Caitlyn said. There's a sense that more people could get caught up in this as

His V has news time now at ten thirty two. As Newswatch continues Republican Representative Justin Amash of Michigan is the first in his party to openly. Call for the president's impeachment mosh took to Twitter this weekend to share his discontent with Trump's conduct as president, after he read the redacted version of the Muller report. GOP lawmaker rope at the present. And engaged in specific actions. And a pattern of behavior that meets the threshold for impeachment. President responded with the by via Twitter saying that a mosh was a loser and his only doing this to make a name for himself for more, I spoke with Andrew de scenario who is congressional correspondent for political office, so far, the only Republican who was really come out in the strong term saying that impeachment proceedings should begin. Why do you think he stuck his neck out, right? Well amongst had long had an independent streak in congress despite the our next to his name. If anybody on the Republican side of the aisle was going to say what he said yesterday. I think most of us who cover congressman Powell converts every single day. What did that up mosh would probably be the one, but it is -nificant nonetheless. He is one of the most conservative members of congress. He has a clash with the president often. He has clashed with a House Republican leaders, very often. So again, this is. Surprised that he would dictate a v neck out this way. But I think what, what will be the big question next is a, whether they're going to be, they're going to be political repercussions for Representative moss for what he did. And Secondly whether House Democratic leaders will recalibrate their message on a teacher and as well. Well, let's talk about your first point there, even the GOP chairwoman has come out with their own fleets going, this kind of a sad thing to see imperative what she says the Democrats talking points how badly could this affect his future in the party as in congress, as well as the party? So in that statement you reference, the Republican National Committee, chairwoman Rhonda, McDaniel said, she noted that folks in Representative Mancha's district strongly support this president, but she did not take the extra step of endorsing the idea of Republican primary challenge or to congressmen, mosh, I think that, that, that yet to be seen, and I think it will largely depend on whether congressman Ammash sticks sticks his neck out even further on issue and becomes more vocal than he has become about it that could certainly change the calculus for the national Republican apparatus heading into twenty twenty one of the things that are Marsh said, is that he doesn't believe that very many members of congress have actually read the report. He said, he read all four hundred forty eight pages of it. Do you think that's true? Do you think most congressional representatives haven't even looked at it, but I think there's probably a disparity among Democrats versus Republicans, right? You whenever I talked to. The House Democrat. They always met yet they, they like to mention that they have read before ball report..

"O T. You ZipRecruiter, the smartest way to hire. Just in a mosh has reached a different conclusion that I have I respect him. I think it's a courageous statement. But I believe that to make a case for obstruction of Justice. You just don't have the elements that are evidenced in this document. Senator Mitt Romney just minutes ago responding to a tweet storm from Republican congressman Justin Amash in which he said that he thought President Trump had reached the level of impeachable offenses as laid out in the Muller report. Let's talk about it. First of all, let me start with congressman John Paul, you're on the House Judiciary, some members of the democratic caucus wanna go forward with impeachment, but democratic leaders have been saying slow your roll does the fact that just in a Marsh. A Republican is now supporting impeachment. At least theoretically. Mean that the people who want to proceed with that. Now have more wind at their backs. Well, I think it's a watershed moment for weeks speaker Pelosi has been saying this needs to be bipartisan if it's going to move forward, just from the practical perspective of impeachment moving forward. And I think just in a mosh coming on board means that there is now bipartisan support for really understanding the seriousness of what is in the Muller report. And, you know, he says, and I think he's right. We most of us actually swing district Democrats and progressives most of the caucus agrees with most of those conclusions that just an Ammash has around. What is in the report, we have read the report, it very carefully laid out a case that really is pushing for the house to take on these issues. So I think it's not about the impeachment vote. It's about opening an impeachment inquiry, and really having the legal ramp, the legal remedies that are stronger when you have an. Inquiry, and I think we're very quickly headed down that path. Former congresswoman love. Let me just ask you, do you think as somebody who served with Justin Amash, and he occasionally would take positions of buck this party especially on constitutional issue. Do you think that this will have an effect on other Republicans? Or do you think he's kind of an outline? I don't think so. I think one of the things that working with Justin Ammash he, he does this from time to time. And when it comes to the constitution, it's really interesting because he's incredibly a constitutional conservative except for when it comes to district are when it comes to issues that deal with Michigan. So we have I have seen him personally taken a step away from whether it's a house freedom caucus, or even Republicans, and there really isn't a rhyme or reason for some of these. So this doesn't surprise anyone I think that this, it's not going to help him. It's specially with the colleagues that he's used to working with and and his voting district. So we're car. What did you think? Mitt Romney pointed out, Senator Romney that I disagreed respectfully, but he also said the American people aren't there, which is true polls show that there is not enough support for impeachment, not, not majority support or even plurality support and second of all the senate's Republican. That's the jury, and they will never vote to convict as long as Republicans. I think it's a more simple question than that, because I don't believe that this is a political tool at all. In fact, I think this is a constitutional instrument. So either you think the president is above the law or you do not. I think that I appreciate congressman Ammash, but that's not where my issue lies my issue lies with the lack of courage, the House Democratic leadership is showing now the body and the caucus members had that, but I need Nancy Pelosi and Jim Clyburn, and standing Hoyer to, to do their job, as leaderships of this caucus and bring forth, these impeachment inquiries, the reason being is because the president is not above the law in Muller, late this out. We saw the same thing with Nixon what happened over time the America. In public, the more and more came out the American public got on board in right now. I think that they, there is a absolute case for obstruction of Justice that's been laid out. And so what if it doesn't get through the Senate? The fact is do your job in the house, and we'll worry about that later. What are you going to go?.

The Republican congressman also takes a swipe at his colleague standing few members of congress even read Muller's report their minds were made up based on partisan affiliation. This is, of course, just one Republican, who has a history of bucking, the Trump administration, especially on constitutional issues, but the move is significant because he is the first to break with his party on the.

Cut number seven Mitt Romney talking with Chuck Todd about the president's following the conservative playbook cut number seven. Well, there are differences. I I have places where I disagree with the president. I was in his office just a couple of weeks ago and said I disagreed with the steel and and limited terrace on the other hand, I said, I'm overwhelmingly in favor with what you're doing on China. I in my opinion, you can get as hard as you wanna get pushing back on China. I think you also at to say the president has followed the Republican playbook when it comes to the domestic county lowering taxes. Lowering regulation. The economy's doing very very well. It's hard not to recognize. That's a pretty strong record as to whether or not there's a primary time will tell parties typically do when there's a primary he and mitt Romney's not going to be that guy. I don't think there's going to be a primary. That's crazy. Donald Trump is got ninety five percent supported Republican party. That's crazy. He went on to talk about how crazy it is for Democrats to go after the president on his taxes cut number eight. Well, I'd like the president to follow through and show his tax returns. He said he would I think it was on the today show. He said he would be happy to release returns. So we should do that. But I also tell you I did the Democrats are just playing along his handbook which is going after his tax returns to a legislative action is Barack that's not going to happen. The courts are not going to say that you can compel a person running for office to release their tax returns. So he's going to win this victory. He wins them time after time, and you know, that the green new deal all these candidates out there talking about getting getting rid of ObamaCare and traditional healthcare putting in place Medicare these things are just just non starters. And I think the Democratic Party is finding itself in a real difficult position. With those kind of it is in moronic got picked up by everyone. It is moronic. It's also unconstitutional. It's like the Democrats amending. The media report of release of the Muller report by attorney. Bar. They don't seem to understand that the law prevents us from compromising sources and getting people killed if there are spies and means inside the GRU that told us about the Russian attack.

Listen to this cut number nine. Well, we've seen a dramatic shift in the nature of immigration and illegal immigration just over the last few weeks. I mean, a number of years ago and up until just a few weeks ago, the great majority of people coming into our country. We're coming looking for work single, man. And oftentimes district turned at the border sent back home typically to Mexico in the last few weeks. There's been a dramatic change, and that is worsening unaccompanied young people as well as families with lots of kids pouring into the border, and they say the magic word, I'm seeking asylum and by virtue of our laws and processes here. We bring them into the country. We don't begin to have enough space in our facilities to maintain the kind of care that these people deserve. And so they're being turned out into the into our country a hundred and twenty five thousand of them so far this year. It's overwhelming our system, we have got to be able to deal with this in a way, it's gonna take some legislation to get it fixed a hundred and twenty five thousand people I think it was just last month. But what Mitt Romney is saying? Governor Romney Senator Romney, call them what you want. We're joking at the panel before that that Chuck said, he's never met a governor. Who's become a Senator who wants to be called other than the governor? And it changes over time like Senator Lamar Alexander had been governor Alexander.
