They had to come out with. Leader McConnell and whip Thune. They ought to say, Hey, here's the deal. President knows what he agreed to.

Mitt Romney breaks with GOP and votes to remove Trump from office

"You believe that Donald Trump is is unfit to serve as president and should be removed from office. I do believe he should be removed from office. That's the vote that I will take an in just a short while if this means the end of your our political career broad shoulders to be able to to whether personal changes in my in my career political or otherwise. But what I don't have is the capacity to ignore my conscience the first time in American history sitting. US Senator voted to convict and remove president of his own party. Republican Senator Mitt Romney Utah Shocked. I gotta say just about everyone me as much as anyone without announcement and vote today before he did that before he decided trump was guilty of abuse the power given interviews the Atlantic's McKay coppins talking about his rationale. He said that this is the last place he wanted to find himself quote. I did not want to get here. In fact. He said that heard the reason he wanted. Former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about what president trump had told him was quote. I had the hope that Bolton would be able to say something it's to create reasonable doubt so I wouldn't have to vote to convict to talk more about Senator Romney's vote to android with a guy who got that big interview. McKay coppins staffer of the Atlantic and Neil Cacho former acting solicitor. Sir General in the Obama Administration who co-authored an opinion piece in the Times today titled This will come back to haunt trump and his enablers. Kayla me start with you a remarkable ccable moment in politics often. We don't surprise us because it's like well everyone's GonNa just do. What the partisan incense here? What was your sense of talking to him about what this meant and how he got there you know? I have to say that when I was told by his office that he was willing to talk to me yesterday and that he would reveal his vote. I went there with the assumption that he would probably be telling me he was gonNA vote to acquit. That wasn't to say I was. I wasn't open to the possibility. Maybe I think I actually said on your show last fall that I thought of all the Republican senators. Romney was the biggest threat to vote to convict. But you know I watched this kind of wrathful. Aw response from the right over. The last few months directed at him and I kind of expected him to be cowed and have like a bunch of excuses for why he had decided to to vote to acquit instead. He was very kind of almost indignant about what he saw as the president's misconduct he was dismayed by by his party. Ready and what. What's become of it and you know one thing that was remarkable to me was the degree to which he was talking about? Very personal issues of conscience and faith faith morality. He told me you know. I'm a fellow Mormon. And he was talking. He was quoting scripture to me quoting from hymns kind of talking about how he had he had had to pray eight for wisdom throughout this ordeal and so this really was something that was very personal for him and something seemed really committed to kneel. You wrote today about History history haunting the Republican senators or even in the near term being haunted by this. But what do you mean by that. Why do you think that's the case as opposed to it being consigned the memory hole like so so much that happens in our in our political world? Yeah I think that the GOP is now like the grand old cover party. And I think there's kind of three structural girl features that if I were publican outside of Romney I'd be really worried about number one. Is that seventy five percent of Americans wanted witnesses and seventy five percent of Americans. I think the president. That's something wrong in Ukraine. And that's even though we're so bitterly divided as a country so many Americans share that same core belief. The second is is the Democratic Party which has been told from the start impeachments assure loser the president keeps saying it and the like and they did it anyway. They did it despite the cost. Because has like Senator Romney they thought it was the right thing and third underappreciated and this is also the role of The folks in the Federal Government People like Dr Dr Fiona Hill and colonel of inman and the brave whistle blower all of whom came forward to say. Hey this is a real problem those three things together. So let's say to me if the president continues doing this stuff. He's going to face those three problems again. And then there's one other thing which is a consequence of the president's own legal arguments he said it to the Senate to things he said number one that there weren't any first-hand witnesses and the house should have gotten them and number two he said. Let the voters decide in November. Those two things together say the House tomorrow should be subpoenaing Bolton and gone launching a full-scale investigation. And that's what the president's President's own lawyers said should be done and so yeah. I'd be really worried if I'm the president I'd be worried about every senator who enabled this cover up McKay Don Jr. in Europe somewhat predictably tweeting about how Mitt Romney should be expelled from the GOP that he's now officially a member of the resistance and should be expelled and then of course Romney's niece Ronna Romney mcdaniel. Who is the chair of the? GOP said this is not the first time I disagree with Mitt. I imagine not be the last. The bottom line is president trump. Did nothing wrong. Republican Party's ladies more united than ever behind him. I got to imagine everyone's GonNa Watch the predictable kind of nuclear reaction that they will get from from from trump and the Republican party on this well. That's that's the whole point that's the strategy and that's been the strategy from day one that Donald trump goes after Mitt Romney when he steps out of line not because he he thinks he's going to be able to intimidate Mitt Romney necessarily because he's sending a message to all the other Republicans who might consider stepping out of line. I will say that you know when I was talking to Romney. He was bracing for this political backlash yesterday and he said Look. I know this is going to be really bad. I know that the vast majority of my party is lined up behind trump. He told me when he he's in airports. Every walk down the street random people will shout things at him in call him a traitor. Tell him he ought to be ashamed of himself and that was before he took this vote. So you know the the backlash is going to be by kind kind of deliberately. A spectacle to try to make an example out of Mitt Romney and I think that's part of the reason that Romney it'll be interesting to continue to watch him both both how he reacts to that and and how he kind of weather is that because while I do think there's GonNa be a lot of anger from the White House presidents allies the grassroots. I'm not actually sure that his Republican colleagues in the Senate are going to be quite as vicious and and you know Romney wants to show that you can do this. You can take this so you can stand up to trump and continue to resist. Do Your job. The president also of course tweeting a as I said earlier kind of nonsensical video targeting Romney I also I also wonder Neil and this is sort of different calculation but but but folks in the civil service I mean this seems to be key so many of them wrist stuck their neck out to go to go testify. We we know that there were people in the administration some political mostly civil servants. who were saying this is wrong? This is wrong. We shouldn't be doing this and I wonder what today means for them as well. In terms of restraining the president going forward so two things I just with respect to the conversation you were just having it so striking to me that this is the same person who evidently said something according to CBS opponents head is going to put on a pike and that led all the Republican senators to freak out when representative Schiff made that argument. But now that's exactly what's Howard's to Romney. We don't hear any of the any of that back and then with respect to the federal bureaucracy. I think you're absolutely right. You could take two different lessons from at one is it. Didn't work but I think the lesson that dead there is being taken in America. I'm starting to hear it from people in the federal government including when people who've seen some bad stuff and haven't come forward yet is the truth has got to come out. If the truth keeps coming out then the president is going to be stymied and all of the horrible things that he's trying to do and so I think this is going to be a lesson that's going to empower future whistleblowers. It's not going to hold them back And I certainly encouraged anyone with information to come forward McKay coppins and Neil Cacho. Thanks Janet from raking time tonight.

It wouldn't have happened as if one of them dropped out but it was inevitable if they both stayed in the race at some point they're going to have to draw contrast with these jobs and I do think the media can kind of overstate it.

Where have you been and so I do believe that that that Op Ed piece. Although I love Nina which was a bit unfair more than a bit. What was was justifiably?

Who worked for Barack Obama that is going to cleanse a lot of his misdeeds Whether or not you like it or not and the fact the Cory Booker got out the race today adds another three to five points to his cushion.

"Never go to the post office again. The President says a source close to him quote is never going to have rudy. Giuliani represent represent him in the Senate trial starting with the problem that he's a potential witness which says a lot right there then again. This is a president who of course seems to improvise Giuliani's one of the few insiders seemed to know how to sway him. So it is possible. I suppose for more now. I want to go to Jim Costa at the White House. So this new scene reporting the Giuliani's lobbying the White House to get on the President's defense team. What you know about it Anderson? I think Giuliani has been pining for this for some time. Now it is falling on deaf ears going over like a led Zeppelin over here at the White House Anderson. I talked to a number of sources this evening. My colleagues Pam Brown in Germany diamond. Yes Giuliani has been lobbying. The president About this idea of joining the president's impeachment trial team but in the words of one source yes Guiliani could potentially be called as a witness and so what would Giuliani do. Call himself to the stand and so that that's why it appears to be a non starter at this point but as you said Anderson This president has been unpredictable at times talked to a White House official earlier this evening. Who really sort of threw cold water on the whole idea and said that that's one variable? The president doesn't need at this point the White House they want. The Senate impeachment trial rules include a resolution that could dismiss the charges against the president after opening arguments. NAM is that didn't wasn't the president for a while kind of wanting a big made for TV. Be Trial that is. That is what we were reporting and that is what the president was saying late last year that he wanted. This big splash. Trial wanted witnesses like Hunter Biden and Joe Biden in the whistle blower and so on and you heard top deputies over at the White House saying the same thing when they would go out in front of the cameras that talk has largely gone away and now oh you're hearing the president and some of his people inside the administration talked to White House officials evening. WHO said yeah if they could potentially get away with having a motion to dismiss Smith this trial they'll take it but at this point the going Thinking at this point Anderson is is that they believe there will be some sort of trial it might last two to three weeks and Anderson. Listen one of the things that White House official told me earlier. This evening is that they are not dealing with the house anymore and while over in the house Input might might have been welcomed by the White House. They understand when they're dealing with senators. Even Republican senators. It's a different dynamic and that senators don't like being told what to do so you do get the sense talking to sources over here Anderson that they're going to take a bit more of a hands off approach and and dealing with these senators and pressuring for what they want out of this trial. Jim Acosta thanks very much from the White House and I appreciate the joints chief legal analyst and former Federal Prosecutor Jeffrey toobin senior legal analyst and former. US Attorney Preet Berar free. What do you make this? I mean Both Romney and Senator Collins or talking about having witnesses. Do you think there's actually enough momentum for that you know. It's hard to say. Romney was very careful to say that he believed in the Clinton model and that he believes that one witness the number witnesses. The Democrats want to call but one win this John Bolton he would vote in favor of his coming but not necessarily at the outset at some point later after initial arguments have been made in opening statements in presentations have been made so so he's rattling around about that Collins's we know we need to more. Maybe Murkowski maybe one other. I think partly it depends on what the public thinks. And how much public pressure there is. It seems very difficult. I don't know if Jeff agrees with us. It seems very difficult not to call John Bolton because he seems to have made it clear that he's prepared to testify if the Senate issues subpoena. He's an important witness. He's the most high-ranking witness he says through his lawyer that he has additional and new information the president has said he would stop that that he would. We'd you have to see how that plays out I have. I have a different view. My view of the United States Senate is whatever. Mitch McConnell wants Mitch McConnell gets. He doesn't want witnesses. He thinks this thing needs to be shut down very quickly. And these moderates they always talk a good game you know Susan Collins always about to do something that she never actually does and I just don't think they're going to. They're going to be any witnesses they how how it actually plays out. I don't no no. I suspect one way it may play out. Is that the Republicans put in a poison pill like they say the only reason we'll have witnesses if hunter biden is also or Joe Biden which will blow up the whole thing. But I just don't think Mitch. McConnell wants Mesa cost in public perception to not calling. At least John Bolton two and I look I agree with Jeff to the extent that it's impossible to state. How Much Mitch? McConnell's able to withstand pressure and public shaming. Just witness. Merrick Garland if he thinks it's good for his side he won't he won't do. What about the the notion of dismissing the trial together? The president tweeted over the weekend. He said many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial based on the no evidence. No crime read the transcripts. No pressure impeachment. Hoax rather than outright dismissal gives the partisan Democrat which hunt credibility credibility that otherwise does not. Have I agree Senator Hawley for Missouri has raised the possibility of dismissing the case. Right away I I think there could be sort of a hybrid situation where they don't dismiss it right away. But they dismiss it after the presentations of the lawyers the house managers and the and Trump's lawyers I the the fact that that Romney and Collins have said they're not dismissing it. Right away hey doesn't mean they won't ultimately vote to dismiss it so I mean it could. You're saying after a couple of days it could be after after a few days. We'll know more more about the procedure tomorrow. But I think they are. McConnell wants this thing over fast and I think that means it's going to be over fast. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me. If you're going to hear some testimony or maybe not testimony Bailey's presentations and depending on how invested in that performance the public is and and how much are looking forward to having witnesses to then move to dismiss at that point and I guess the way it would work you agree with me right and it would. It would go to the first to the chief. Justice and the chief justice would make a decision about dismissing. I don't think that he would know he's GonNa leave it. But then the people need to be aware of is to the extent extent the chief justice has power. All of it can be overruled. Any decision by the chief. Justice can be overruled by simple majority of senators. I think it looks kind of terrible. And we know that he he can withstand terrible appearances Mitch McConnell but it looks particularly terrible to move to dismiss have that denied by the chief justice the United States Supreme Court appointed by Republican. not this president another Republican and have that overruled by by a simple majority of centers. I don't see that happening. The other thing to remember about witnesses is all the witnesses will show that the president is guilty because he is guilty. Well we don't know why they would say eh. Well what could he say that would be not incriminating. I mean why would he call. The interactions with Giuliani a drug deal. If he thought this was a wonderful full a wonderful negotiate give inappropriately illegal opinion and he could say look. I thought it was a drug dealer. Thought it was terrible stuff. I thought he shouldn't have said those things I thought it was not wise. But but he's not you but it's not right but it's not criminals teachable. which that's the best he could do? He could yeah the White House how I assume they you consider them. Wise is for not jumping at the chance to have Giuliani. Be Part of the team arguing just just because we won rudy. Giuliani the entertainment. I'm I'm tempted to say I think it'd be very wise. I don't think so what what's interesting is that this controversy about whether House Republicans are part of the defense is team because the interaction between the two bodies is so interesting. report the members of the House. All the senators are a bunch of pompous asses. And and the senators all the house members are a bunch of partisan lunatics now. Both of them are kind of right about that but it is but but it probably does make sense to keep the House members away from the Republicans look so I work in the Senate and the House and you know there are members of the Senate who had a little bit of that view. I thought we should maybe in the country move to a unicameral system at some point but bilic but trump can have the best of both worlds. He can have you know smart sober-minded sober-minded responsible attorneys who have some no continue to have some dignity and intelligence in presenting the case in the Senate but it can also have the house folks it's like Doug Collins and others on television to press the case on Fox News and to his base in public. I don't know how much people are going to watch the hearings. And that's sort of what he's been doing all along right he's had some blowers that nobody's ever heard of who were super smart. They're dealing with the niceties of legal principles behind closed doors but then he has. People are Giuliani and others on television pressing the AH Doug D. Collins Apologize Wrong I was the other night and we said he wasn't GonNa Apologize For saying the Democrats were in love with terrorists and he did although he didn't apologize in the same form where he made the statement. Well it's easier to do it just online or in a rather than going on Hannity or one of those folks that pre As well thank you very much still to come I. It was one one embassy than it was four that we're facing some kind of imminent threat of Iranian attack according to the president's though the new C. N. N. reporting on steps that would have been taken if the threats were real those steps were not taken and there's new from the president that it really doesn't matter why he ordered the killing of Qasem Soleimani. We'll keep him honest ahead. Hey Chris lead low and I'm candace Parker.

"Good evening a big night breaking news on the shape of the impeachment trial including Republican senators. Now talking about wanting to hear from witnesses and not wanting to immediately vote to dismiss the charges also late word that the president. TV lawyer alleged. Bagman Rudy Giuliani. Has Been lobbying to join the impeachment. Legal team new reporting as well on the president's claim the killing they're running in general prevented imminent attacks on for American embassies and big developments is Democrats here for tomorrow night's debate here on CNN and lose another contender today. We close out the hour. You're by marking ten years. Since an earthquake devastated Haiti we begin though this hour right now with more breaking news it concerns the Ukrainian company Barisno which is at the center of the impeachment saga and not only does this new reporting stir memories of Russia's interference the two thousand sixteen campaign it is also very much in the here and now quoting from the lead of the story with President trump facing impeachment trial over his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former vice president. Joseph R Biden junior and his son Hunter Biden Russian military. Hackers hers had been boring into the Ukrainian Gas Company at the center of the affair. According to security experts join me now Matthew Rosenberg shares a byline on the stories New York Times. Investigative correspondent swells ASEAN National Security Analyst. Matthew this is really extraordinary. Are Article That you've you've ridden kicked. Can you just lay out. What Red Flag this hacking now has raised exactly? What's going on so the Russian hackers? They're from the same unit that hacked the Clinton emails they were detected. Did kind of around November attempted to do fishing to get the credentials of people inside Peres met the company the center of this scandal. The company that Hunter Biden served on the board of the fear. Here is that what they're looking for is the same kind of dirt that Donald Trump wanted from Ukraine when he pressed him to open an investigation into Paris. And that you know you're looking at a repeat potentially of two thousand sixteen when the Russians will get some dirt like they got Job John Podesta's emails and then weaponized that use that the sped around to create embarrassment to kind of help help their guy in this case trump and the Democrats. I mean it's remarkable. It is essentially according to your reporting the same playbook. The Russians ran against Democrats for years ago and and snow happening again. It's it looks like it you know. Look I think one of the things. We all have to remember here. Is that Disinformation such as is only really effective. When it's based on something unreal when you just put out a fake story? There's an ample amount of evidence that people tend to dismiss it at this point. People aren't dumb when you take away. It's real you spin it. You couldn't echo chamber to kind of blasted around the Internet Net and amplify it that can have an effect and the Russians this and it looks like they're looking for that real information to us. We know. President trump pass China to investigate the Biden's obviously Ukraine as well. Has He commented on or has the White House many a comment about what your reporting not yet We'll have to see. I mean it is essentially what president trump has wanted. I mean the the end result which is dirt on the Biden's it's it is the very thing that he pressured Ukraine for absolutely and look his Rudy Rudy. Giuliani acting genesys. Personal lawyer is running a payroll offered you know poking around Ukraine looking for the same kind of information Allegedly Russian spies. You're supposed to do in the same. They all want the same end result. Assault which is something that's certainly does raise questions about why they want this and what the aim is here. Yeah I mean I guess I misspoke because really president trump according to the testimony what he really wanted was just the announcement of an investigation. This is actually a they are actually now. According to reporting hacking trying to hack into the company have have they been successful so they have got an end they they weren't able to get into business servers. They got credentials from a number of employees to the servers. We don't know what they took took anything and we don't know exactly what they were looking for what we know. Here's a pattern. And you know this hacking began in November is the public impeachment inquiry was about to get underway The scale of it and the fact they were only targeting mainly targeting prisma have led to the conclusion that this looks like they were looking for information on the Biden's and what's the Biden campaign said you know. They've held it up. As another example of their candidate. Strengthen the fact that trump fears their candidate and now Putin fears. Here's their candidate. I mean they're obviously not happy about this at the Rosenberg. Appreciate it fascinating reporting in the New York Times right now thank you joining us now. Is New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee senator. Menendez what does it tell you that the Russians have hackerism or trying to and got in so far according to the New York Times in a similar way that they hacked Clinton's emails and the DNC in two thousand sixteen. Well it's Russia doing president trump's dirty work again remember number in the last campaign for President candidate trump at the time said Russia of your hearing me get Hillary's emails and sure enough. They did did and now the Russians are engaged once again in seeking to interfere in our elections and give an advantage to president trump. And one percents. Ah Ask the question. Why do they do so they do so because they obviously have come to the conclusion that president trump in terms of their relationships His potential relationship with Russia and Putin is better than some of these other candidates including Vice President Biden. Do you what would you like to hear from President Trump about this. I mean he's yet to comment hard to imagine that he wouldn't come in. At some point he has called for not only Russia during the last campaign but China during this campaign to investigate the Biden's I I know what I'd like Anderson. I know what we will get. We still could not get president trump. Despite all of his unanimous intelligence agencies including the leaders of those agencies that he appointed saying that Russia interfered. He says that he accepts president. Putin's denial that. He did not. He's happy to have Russia engaged in our elections as long as it's is to his benefit and he will not do something adverse to Russia. In this regard. There are plenty of actions that he could take right now setting some. I'm very severe sanctions sanctions. That are already in law that have not been implemented for what happened already and now as a preventative as deterrence to Russia. Doing anything anything more and I would bet my bottom dollar see know that this new CNN reporting that Rudy. Giuliani is lobbying president trump to be part of his impeachment legal team and wants to present the the president's case on the Senate floor. How do you think that would work or not work? That would be a double d a delight for the house. Managers a disaster for the president of the life of house managers because having Giuliani who probably should be a witness of anything much less somebody somebody arguing for the president would ultimately they would be ultimate able to throw his own words at him. During the course of an interchange in cross examination and aw engagement and remind Giuliani what he said at any given time which overwhelmingly is detrimental to the president a disaster for the president because it would turn it into a circus versus the serious legal proceedings that are required of an impeachment trial. I think the American people want to see a full fare. Honest transparent trial and that means having witnesses but serious witnesses as well as documents every American has ever ever been involved in a trial as a juror as a participant knows that it involves witnesses and documents and they have to be relevant to the issue at hand a number of Republican senators indicated today that they were not in favor of emotion to dismiss impeachment with one Republican saying there's almost no interest among all Republicans to do that we also heard Senator Romney say he wants witnesses to be called the trial. Do you think those are Brit. Actual breaks in Republican ranks or JUS- moderate Republicans. kind of giving themselves a little wiggle room. I I think they're listening. Hopefully to the polls where two thirds of all of the American people want to see for example former national security adviser Ambassador Bolton testify people like the president's chief of Staff Mulvaney testify and there's a difference between wanting to hear from them they can guarantee not by voting to have witnesses a small but very definite number of witnesses that showed real light on what transpired here so we can come to. An honest decision would be critical. They have the power in their hands. Either we will get witnesses because Republicans who are being in Patriots and not partisans will join us to have witnesses. And if we don't have witnesses it will be. Because Republicans wanted to whitewash and not a real transparent trial. There is reporting reporting that Susan Collins Republican Senator is working with a small group Republicans to allow witnesses at the trial. I'm wondering I mean from what you're hearing from your fellow senators. How much confidence did you have that that might actually happen well without betraying any confidences if what several of my colleagues on the Republican side say to me is ultimately what they do then? We'll be votes for witnesses if however When the moment comes where you need a profile encourage particularly with this president who abuses all of those who stand in his way and they collapse Then we won't have witnesses but I think there is a growing view amongst several republicans who understand what an honest list of fair transparent trial is witnesses and documents listening to the American people. Overwhelmingly want certain witnesses. I hope they will answer the call all of the Patriots. I'm certainly not GonNa ask you names but what you're saying is you have had an just just want to make sure I hear this correctly. You've had republican colleagues. Republican senators. Say did you. They would like to see witnesses. Yes yes do you think there are. I mean what is it for is needed is that is are there. I think it's within the universe there being enough the question is when it comes time. Wanting to see witnesses and voting to have witnesses are two different things. I hope they will vote. wrote to have witnesses Senator Menendez procedure. Time thank you. Thank you just ahead more in the upcoming impeachment trial including the president's legal strategy such it is also keeping them honest the president as prison trump's stated case for killing him Sola money unravels. He says it doesn't really matter if you're on in general was planning imminent attacks as Mr Trump has claimed why might might matter or absolutely. Does matter of the president lied to the American people very back on that a new charge about the old meeting between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth. Warren has the Vermont Center on the defensive. Tonight with senator. Warren is now saying about the.

"That were divisive of a significant nature that I call him out on that. And I have by the way with regards to Charlottesville attacks on the media, the ROY Moore endorsement, the kashogi approach, Dan, we've been talking about the Senate Republicans, maybe starting to crack amid the shutdown and pressure on twenty twenty more broadly are we seeing a cracking in the Republican party in his Romney, the hammer that's trying to make that even wider. I think that's still an open question. I think the former governor now Senator Romney wanted to put down a marker as he came in. But but in talking to people who are close to Romney, they suggested that this is not the beginning of a crusade. This is a way to say, here's where I stand. Here are the issues where I'm going to differ with him. And I'm willing to speak out. But for the short term he's going to try to become a Senator. But I think it it opens up the question of how much cracks will actually be enlarge as we go through the year. And as the president. Runs into problems. But he showed the hawks in the Republican party. Don't like the foreign policy being conducted by this president and Lindsey Graham very upset about the pullout from Syria tried to slow that down upset about what happened to Mattis with the president this week saying incorrectly. I fired Mattis which really offended a lot of people Mattis quit over principal. And so there's a growing group. Marco Rubio Mitt Romney will agree with the president. I think more than he will disagree with the president. Although he did list a long list of disagreement there in that hallway counter rather than where they agree. He's a true conservative. But he has the benefit of extraordinary popularity back home. He's got six years. He's not going to be primary in Utah and with his popularity. He can say almost anything he wants about Donald Trump and pick his fight. When you think about Senator flake, just retired from Arizona. Senator corker just retired from Tennessee faith, left the door open to a possible. Twenty twenty campaign. How real could get if President Trump's approval rating ever started to dip. I think there's all. Always somebody who's looking for an opening. And I thought from the beginning that Mitt Romney coming into the Senate is someone who could capitalize on this. If there was a collapse of Trump's support or an opening they're still somebody out there. I do know that the RNC's trying to make that harder and harder for that to happen. But it's hard for me to imagine that someone as sort of polarizing as Trump even within his own party isn't gonna attract some kind of jell o. We still don't know is will Romney be a thorn in the president's side and criticize him verbally or will he actually use legislative levers to constrain is power, you know, flake and corker criticized the president a lot over the first two years. But it was really only at the end of those two years that they started to actually try to send a message to him by refusing to vote on certain things, they really, you know, to the great frustration of a lot of the president's critics out there in the country. They weren't willing. To vote against him a truly sent him a message. And so what we still are waiting to see when it comes to Mitt Romney is you know, he's clearly willing to take up that mantle of being critical of the president. But will he make legislative and he did say that he would back the Republicans on the wall? That's right revealing. I like the wall. He just doesn't like the president's character and conduct. But he has a record on immigration that is hawkish, right? He can't walk away from the record he compiled as a candidate in two thousand twelve could be unifying is Putin. Not kashogi Saudi Arabia. Vladimir Putin the presence bizarre statements in favor of Russia. Could unify the Republicans against him on another vote like the vote on Syria. He's going on the foreign relations committee. So that will give them a bit of this out in the Saudi. I think he's playing a longer game. I think he came in and said, I'm gonna I'm gonna make clear where I stand which is I have real disagreements with this president they'll I may vote for a lot of things that all Republicans support. But he doesn't know what's going to happen with the mother report. He doesn't know how strong for the president's going to be in a year or fifteen months. I think he's leaving open the possibility not necessarily that he wants to run. But that there will be. Something different come twenty twenty for the Republicans to choose from having a Romney around serves a purpose for a lot of Senate Republicans. They may not admit it publicly. But they like the fact that there's someone there who is willing to challenge the president publicly. So they don't have to they want those points to be made. But for a variety of reasons, they don't feel that they can always make them. And you know, he's willing to take the heat, and we'll make some different visit has political capital former presidential nominee. He's not just a Senator like flake or corker, even like, Ohio governor, John casick, a former nominee. He's a former nominee, and I think because of what happened with Mattis what because of the Saudi issue and some of the things the president has been saying on foreign policy. The president has crossed a line with a lot of people overseas and domestically and it could be a very different game. Thanks, everybody. Four chiefs here. Thanks to our conversation.

GOP throws shade at Mitt Romney for blistering op-ed about Trump

"A Utah Senator was in hot water earlier this week after saying he wants to work with everyone in Washington DC, USA radio networks, Tim. Berg explains Republican Senator from Utah Mitt Romney is still drawing a lot of attention and heat from Republicans over an op-ed that he penned earlier this week criticizing President Trump Senator Romney says he believes he can work with both sides of the aisle. I look forward to working with Republicans and Democrats working with the president members of the house and the Senate we'll have some differences, and I expect that each Senator and each Representative will express their on news as they think that I'm not worried about what other people think about what I have to say

If at all does he at least get credit for saying publicly what most other Republican politicians say, privately I am going to close my eyes and go to sleep. And I would like you to wake me in the summer say in the summer of twenty twenty when Mitt Romney steps on the stage of the Republican convention in prime time to offer his ringing endorsement for Donald Trump's reelection. Because that is what is gonna happen. I tweet that yesterday. I think I could take the other side of that. I don't think he will be at that. I don't think he will speak at that convention in support this. We are reliving this is where the seven years of seniority or so I have on you are very critical six years. But is that this is like Bush McCain in right went in at this point in thousand right then McKay because Romney probably won't run for president again, and he's going to and that is gonna require him campaigning for Trump should run for reelection. He's going to pay for him. He one hundred percent is. And you know, and I think in McCain spoke in prime time on the in the two thousand four commission favor of Bush who he said was deep like had much of the same less of a moral case against Bush as a substantive case the McCain hadn't he completely flipped it and campaign for Bush and ran as a foolishly as is continuing the Bush legacy and two thousand eight so any. Possible. Look to be fair saying it, it's better than not saying it, right, right? What that is. That's great. My come. It was going to be wake me up when he actually uses the power of his office to stop Trump in some way. Like, I think this this is another so fucking silly to me like everyone's focused on like should he be applauded? Should. He be condemned. Should he believed should he be? I don't know. We don't know. Like, we said like we can place a fun bed on the twenty twenty convention who the fuck knows what he's going to do. He might you know, he could be is he knew Jeff flake or is he something else? Although I will say in flakes case, at least at the very end, even though it was quite belated flake stop judges because he was trying to get a Bill to protect Robert Muller and Romney who was interviewed by Jake tapper on CNN on Wednesday tapper said, are you going to, you know, stop judges like like Jeff flake did and Romney's like, oh, I don't know that I think that might be unproductive. And you know, and then he said he'd vote for the border wall..

"Secret of a time where the creased trousers to borrow a phrase of a guy like Barack Obama was what passed for statesmanship? Do. You mean to tell me Senator Romney, the you couldn't have made a character argument against Barack Obama when you were competing against him. You got close to it. In one of the debates the topic of offshore accounts came up in you in one of your only great moments in those debates Mitt Romney said well, we're going to talk about offshore accounts. We should talk about the ones that you have. And Barack Obama was stunned and immediately turned and I've recalled this like it was yesterday. A candy candy candy and calling the candy card to get candy Crowley to come in and step in you, telling me mitt that you couldn't have made a character arguments. You couldn't have stood on these debates stages and said if you want to speak of character, you'd mentioned Mr Obama, President Obama that you in fact could not jettison Jeremiah Wright, but you had to stand against his rhetoric. What about this? Have you done that as a president? Or are you out calling Republicans suicide bombers standing with the extreme factions in Iran is that stepping back from the form of rhetoric that you supposedly disowned what about this? We've talked about Benghazi as a tactical air we've talked about whether or not it was a terrorist attack. But let's talk about it. As an issue of character. The secretary of state who had Hollywood stars on speed dial. But did not give the United States ambassador her phone number. So that he can call directly and ask for help. That's a character issue. You're telling me that you couldn't have run on a character issue when you're running against a guy who perpetrated one of the biggest lies in the history of American politics. That is the if you like your plan, you can keep it. You didn't take the opportunity on stage to say, you know, what Mr President that adds up to about six million lies about six million Americans have lost their insurance plans that you said they could keep and if it's three people per family, Mr President that's eighteen million lies you told about this plan. And we know that you told them in advance. Are you ready today to apologize for telling a calculated lie about ObamaCare? Are you willing today to communicate that that's a character issue? You could have at the time. Called out the pay to play that we all knew was going on with the Clinton foundation as a character issue. And this is something I don't think that Mitt Romney understands any longer. We were part of the generation where we were told back the nominee back the nominee back the nominee. I voted for Mitt Romney fine. But now he's part of the generation who seems to be well, maybe vote for the nominee more disturbingly to me is who is getting in bed with there is a simple formula. You wanna see me get a TV show right now. You wanna see me go get an one sign an MSNBC contract today. If I were suddenly to change my stripes to say on this. You know, the the biggest radio show in the world. Oh, you know. Well, I've changed my mind. I've seen my heirs of my waist tomorrow. I would have a television show on MSNBC mitt Romney's people know this formula, they know how to make him the co presidents in the minds of the media. They know how to position him. This way. The silver curious about what folks from the state of Utah. Think about this Larry in Salt Lake City Utah. Congratulations. You're on the network taught Herman filling in for rush. Larry. You're doing great. Appreciate it. Hey, I believe Mitt Romney still could be president. And I believe that he's taking this past. So he'll be the good guy to run against. Our president in twenty twenty. So he's positioning himself in a screenplay sense. As the the help from without the good guy come to rescue us. What signed we have? He's good in terms of policies or any sign of that. And what would be what do you think you'd run on policy-wise if you were to do that, what would be the top policy of Mitt Romney of version ten point. Oh, well, I don't agree with we Romney at all. What he's doing? I think he just thinks that by being Israel righteous good guy uniting the world or in America. A way to the path to being president. I see so the I think it's a foolish planned. Yeah. And I would say this Larry, and I thank you for the call from Salt Lake City. I say this. He's he's doing this. Again that McCain did and others have done right now. He's deeply loved by the media, and you know, because rush invented the syndrome, the strange new respect syndrome of the media, or they suddenly have strange respect for this Republican. And the president said it very well yesterday, if you would shown this sort of vigor when you ran against Barack Obama, you could have one I think of the assault weapons question so called assault weapons question during that debate. And I look at this Mitt Romney with this op-ed. You could have written at the time. You wanna talk weapons, let's talk about six shooters. Let's talk about revolvers. Let's talk about handguns in the city of Chicago. Let's talk about lax on crime. Let's talk about your dear colleague letters that went out to schools and said, we'll give. Money from the department of education. If you keep known criminals out of the criminal Justice system, if they're below the age of eighteen and then we see parkland four, which of course, Romney couldn't see coming. He could have done that at any time. He wanted to he could have expanded the debate into these other failures, I said Obama killed the notion of a president bringing us together. Maybe it's not dead. But the fact is it suffering. And I think we saw a man who ran ran is a light bringer. And that's what he ran as people fainting and such in his presence all the pictures with his own photography team. Finding them with these strange halos it appeared behind him who turned out to be one of the most divisive in history. Debbie from Holland, Ohio. You're on the Rush Limbaugh program taught him and filling in for rush. Shallow, debbie. Hi, todd. I also wanted to comment about this whole Romney situation. First of all, I think it was terrible that he put his niece in that situation too. And I'm so glad that she nicely. You know without putting him down. She basically told you know, everybody that she's supporting the president. And I'm glad that a lot of other people have the senators and stuff have come around to. And I think only one person so far Jeff flake has backed him. But my main point is that I think Romney is like Hillary Clinton. He Justice can't accept the fact that he lost his jealous of the fact that Donald Trump won. And he walked he craves attention. You know? You know, and so right right away before he even gets in the Senate. He's his first thing he does is trash President Trump. I mean without calling them out by name. Everybody knows who he was talking about everybody on the other, you know, left wing media there. They get it. You know, they know exactly what he's doing. And I think he's like another Hillary Clinton. He can't accept the fact that he lost. He's jealous of the fact that someone like Donald Trump who is a business person. Like, he was only Donald Trump. Did it the right way? He wasn't afraid to say, I'm rich. I want to help the American people don't but Mitt Romney is all about himself, and he craves attention. And that's the difference between President Trump and him. President Trump is for the people Mitt Romney is formed salt. And he's another Hillary. And I wanted to add something to what you're saying, Debbie. It makes a lot of sense. Thank you very much for the phone call. Here's the thing about the president's is the unvarnished way in which he speaks. I'll let you in on something in DC circles. That's how everyone speaks. I'm sorry. I've worked there. I used to not have a problem with cursing. And it came back to me after worked in that city. It's rough and tumble in that way. In the American people. I think can sense for Mitt Romney, he's triangulating, and I just put it in relationships sense. If your husband came home, really late, and you said where were you? And he said, oh, well, I thought about going to the store, and then I Dennis GM jammed the neighbor, but he was with don't wasn't Jim. It wasn't it. Right away. You step back and say, you're triangulating. You're figuring something out on your feet. That's Mitt Romney. And that's what he doesn't get about.

Listen more understand more radio seven forty. I'm Pat Woodard. And this is Stephanie investor insights were stifles chief investment officer, Michael O'Keefe. Good morning, Michael as we head into the new year. What's on your mind? Have recently. I was asked what might be the most important stories in twenty nineteen. I responded most important stories. This year will be the positive resolutions to the challenges. We saw last year in two thousand eighteen Balcon you give us an example early in the air. We'll take Brexit the UK's exit from the European Union is scheduled to occur in March and true to form the UK approve a process has been contentious in December. We saw field. No confidence vote in a delay. In the house of Commons vote to January. They're not done yet and parties may need to compromise. We Steve expect resolution with Brexit occurring with an agreement bad. How does all this affect the markets geopolitical tensions drive volatility, and we expect more in two thousand nineteen but a resolution of Brexit would be a positive for the markets will cover more potential resolute?

There's just the United States of America in about two days into the presidency that all ended, and I think mitt as well comes from a sort of sealed in a glass jar under someone's porch in way, way way east, Indiana or something. Something hidden. Secretive? Of a time where the creased trousers to borrow a phrase of a guy like Barack Obama was what passed for statesmanship? Do. You mean to tell me Senator Romney, the you couldn't have made a character argument against Barack Obama when you were competing against him. You got close to it. In what did the debates the topic of offshore accounts came up in you in one of your only great moments in those debates Mitt Romney said well, we're going to talk about offshore accounts. We should talk about the ones that you have. And Barack Obama was stunned and immediately turned and I've recalled this like it was yesterday. A candy candy candy and calling the candy card to get candy Crowley to come in and step in. You're telling me mitt that you couldn't have made a character arguments. You couldn't have stood on these debates stages and said if you want to speak of character, you'd mentioned Mr Obama, President Obama that you in fact could not jettison Jeremiah Wright, but you had to stand against his short of rhetoric. What about this? Have you done that as a president? Or are you out calling Republicans suicide bombers standing with the extreme factions in Iran is that stepping back from the form of rhetoric that you supposedly disowned Ord about this. We've talked about Benghazi as as a tactical air we've talked about whether or not it was a terrorist attack. But let's talk about it. As an issue of character. You're the secretary of state who had Hollywood stars on speed dial. But did not give the United States ambassador her phone number. So that he can call directly and ask for help. That's character issue. You telling me that you couldn't have run on a character issue when you're running against guy who perpetrated one of the biggest lies in the history of American politics. That is the if you like your plan, you can keep it. You didn't take the opportunity on stage to say, you know, what Mr President that adds up to about six million lies about six million Americans have lost their insurance plans that you said they could keep and if it's three people family, Mr President. That's eighteen million lies you told about this plan. And we know that you told them in advance. Are you ready today to apologize for telling a calculated lie about ObamaCare? Are you willing today to communicate that that's a character issue? You could have at the time called out the pay to play that we all knew what's going on with the Clinton foundation as a character issue. And this is something I don't think that Mitt Romney understands any longer. We were part of the generation where we were told back the nominee back the nominee back the nominee. I voted. For Mitt Romney fine. But now he's part of the generation who seems to be well, maybe vote for the nominee. More disturbingly to me is who is getting in bed with there is a simple formula. You wanna see me get a TV show right now. You wanna see me go get a one sign and MSNBC contract today. If I were suddenly to change my stripes to say on this the the biggest radio show in the world. Oh, well, I've changed my mind. I've seen my errors of my waist tomorrow. I would have a television show on MSNBC mitt Romney's people know this formula, they know how to make him the co presidents in the minds of the media. They know how to position him this way. The super curious about what folks from the state of Utah. Think about this Larry in Salt Lake City Utah. Congratulations. You're on the network. Todd Herman filling in for rush. Hi, larry. Hi, todd. You're doing great. Appreciate it. Hey, I I believe. President. And I believe that he's taken this path. So he'll be the good guy to run against president in twenty twenty. So he's positioning himself a screenplay sense as the the help from without the good guy. Come to rescue us. What signed did we have? He's good in terms of policies or any sign of that. And what would be what do you think you'd run on policy-wise if you were to do that what would be the top policy of Mitt Romney of version ten point zero. Well, I don't agree with Romney at all. What he's doing? I think he just thinks that by being this real righteous. Good guy. In the world. In america. You create a way to path to being president see. So I think it's a foolish plan. But nothing. Yeah. And I would say this Larry, and I thank you for the call from Salt Lake City. I I would say this. He's he's doing this. Again that McCain did and others have done right now. He's deeply loved by the media, and you know, because rush invented the syndrome, the strange new respect syndrome of the media or they suddenly have strange to respect for this Republican. And the president said it very well yesterday, if you would shown this sort of vigor when you ran against Barack Obama, you could have one I think of the assault weapons question so called assault weapons question during that debate. And I look at this Mitt Romney with this op Ed you could have written at the time. You wanna talk weapons, let's talk about six shooters. Let's talk about revolvers. Let's talk about handguns in the city of Chicago. Let's talk about lax on crime. Let's talk about your dear colleague, letters that went out to schools and said, we'll give you money from the department of education. If you keep known criminals out of the criminal Justice system, if they're below the age of eighteen. And then we see parkland four, which of course, Romney couldn't see coming. He could have done that at any time. He wanted to he could have expanded the debate into these other failures. I said Obama killed the notion of a president bringing us together. Maybe it's not dead. But the fact is it's suffering. And I think we saw a man who ran Iran is a light bringer. And that's what he ran as people fainting and such in his presence all the pictures with his his own photography team. Finding them with these strange halos it appeared behind him who turned out to be one of the most divisive in history. Debbie from Holland, Ohio. You're on the Rush Limbaugh program taught him and filling in for rush. Shallow, debbie. Hi, todd. I also wanted to comment about this whole Romney situation. First of I think it was terrible that he put his niece in that situation too. And I'm so glad that she nicely without putting him down. She basically full, you know, everybody that she's supporting the president. And I'm glad that. A lot of other people have the senators and stuff have come around to. And I think only one person so far Jeff flake has backed him. But my main point is that I think Romney is like Hillary Clinton. He can't accept the fact that he lost his jealous back that Donald Trump won. And he wants he craves attention and so right right away before he even gets in the Senate is first thing he does is trash President Trump. I mean without calling them out by name. Everybody knows who he was talking about everybody on the other, you know, left wing media there. They get it. You know, they know exactly what he's doing. And I think he's like another Hillary Clinton. He can't accept the fact that he lost. He's jealous of the fact that someone like Donald Trump who is a business person. Like, he was only Donald Trump. Did it the right way? He wasn't afraid to say, you know, I'm rich. I want to help the American people dole. But Mitt Romney is all about himself, and he craves attention. And that was the difference between President Trump in him. President Trump is for the people Mitt Romney is formed salt. And he's another Hillary. I wanted to add something that what you're saying, Debbie. It makes a lot of sense. Thank you very much for the phone call. Here's the other thing about the president's is the unvarnished way in which he speaks can't let you in on something in DC circles. That's how everyone speaks. I'm sorry. I've worked there. I used to not have a problem with cursing. And it came back to me after worked in that city. It's rough and tumble in that way. In the American people. I think can sense for Mitt Romney, he's triangulating, and I'll just put it in relationships sense. If your husband came home really late, and you said where were you, and he said, well, I thought about going to the store, and then I Dennis GM jammed the neighbor, but he was with don't wasn't jam. It wasn't it. Right away. You step back and say, you're triangulating. You're figuring something out on your feet. That's Mitt Romney. And that's what he doesn't get about. This new era of someone who seems to be speaking very very directly at all times. It's taught an in for Rush Limbaugh on the IB network. You're listening to the network..

"Eight two eight two eight eight two and putting a premium on that. Because of Mitt Romney some thoughts on this one expand a little bit on something about Romney seeking to be the guy who brings this country together. I believe that's how he wants to be seen in history. And he is about fifteen years past time on that that era where a politician could do that. I think is gone, and I think Barack Obama killed it. I think Obama murdered the idea that a country could be brought together through a president because of the fraud that that he perpetrated the fraud was I'm not going to be the president for Republicans.

"I work with the president as I would frankly with any president, which is on those areas where I'm an agreement will be able to work together where I disagree up that out. All right. So you hear the press about this scariness of the power, basically, referring to the whole wall tug of war. And what's going to happen now with the Democrats? And then you've got Mitt Romney who laid into the Trumpster with his op, Ed which is crazy this couple of days before he was sworn into the Senate, which he will be on Thursday. So incoming Utah Senator Romney blasting the Perot's his character. And what does that set him up for? I guess, you know, heading into that role. Here's a little bit of that. You know, he said to a degree. Presidency shapes the public character of a nation, a president should United's. Inspire us to follow. Our better angels, the president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity and evaluate the national discourse with comedy and mutual respect as a nation. We have been blessed with presidents have called on the greatness of the American spirit with the nation so divided resentful and angry presidential leadership in qualities of characters. Indispensable, and it is in this province where the incumbents shortfall has been most glaring Romney mentioned that Trump had established some good policies for America, including the appointment of conservative judges cracking down China's trade practices in criminal Justice reform. So he threw that red meat out there. And then he talked about the fact that they were policies that mainstream. Republicans have promoted for years. And he said Trump's words and actions have caused dismay around the world in a twenty sixteen. Pew Research Center poll eighty four percent of people in Germany Britain, France, Canada, and Sweden believe the president would do the American president to do the right thing world affairs one year later that number had fallen to sixteen percent. And it does make you wonder what is the modus operandi of Mitt Romney heading into office, the office heading into office and going off nece in the op, Ed piece. So it's interesting because one of the tweets I saw today in response to the op-ed Trump's twenty twenty campaign manager Brad parcel. Wrote or prescriptions, I think his name has responded on Twitter saying the truth is Mitt Romney lack the ability to save this nation. Donald Trump is saved a jealousy is a drink best serve warm and Romney just proved it so sad. I wish everyone had the courage that Donald Trump had. And I think that's part of what it is. Maybe you know, he he was a nominee for president in twenty twelve. So this could be part of the whole thing. Again, you know, or he's just taken the shot right before he gets in office and just to say, hey, I'm just gonna let this role. Yeah. Is this the way I'm rolling because he did have a couple of backhanded compliments mixed in. I didn't do the whole op-ed op Ed piece, but it was just little pieces of it. I suppose is the best way to put that little a little us slice of it here and there, but it's gonna be interesting because the Democrats are rolling in. And what does that mean you've got the president calling a cabinet meeting, and he had a ninety five minutes sort of stream of consciousness defense of the administration. What's happening that kind of thing, and you had the meeting with Pelosi and Chuck Schumer nothing came out of that when they left the White House. So the shutdown continue so no pay for agents know, courts are open. No verifications. What does that mean? And you may be feeling it in the federal system with something. Perhaps that you've tried to do you've got tens of thousands of. Immigration officers and agents, like I said showing up for work every day to guard, the Mexico border were this wall's going, but the government shutdown. So no one's getting paid. And then that is pushing on the immigration courts, which we have that massive backup. New filings are piling up one on top of each other. So there's a backlog of one million cases, but everyone who processes them, they're not they said were sent home. So they're not doing it. Now, there's another thing when US companies because this is a big deal. I mean, how many times have I been checked they might as well, just take my blood. When I go for anything when it comes to job. But when US companies and employers want to check immigration your immigration status of potential hires. I know some of you have had this, right? That you get the e-verify deal. But right now that's not available because there's no money. So we are thirteen days into this sucker because we're going today thirteen over the five point six billion dollar wall. And the strain is starting to be felt right? That's starting to be felt someone's going to give I mean, this is like a wicked game of poker. No one's Lincoln in this. And I can tell you in in my backyard, and your backyard, you're feeling some things depending on who you know, what they do for a living, for example. In dallas. I know there's an attorney who was quoted all over the place saying she's heard from lots of clients that they can't complete the hiring process at manufacturing plants because the verifies down. So like a mattress factory a chemical plant, and they hire a lot of immigrants put they won't hire illegal immigrants. So they're trying to verify that. And they can't do it. How many are getting taken into custody migrants every day two thousand on average. That's the latest sixty five percent who cross our families with children as sixty five percent. Now, there's nowhere to detain them. So hundreds are being released onto the streets in El Paso, Yuma. Arizona other border cities, I lived in El Paso in exactly where that is. I have two friends that work for the border patrol imagine that they were in television. And they went to become. Initially agents with the border patrol and then moved onto higher rankings. But the you gotta wonder because there's there's a lot of scary things that are gonna start to add up in happen. If this situation does not get figured out now specific numbers, I can tell you of about two hundred and forty five thousand employees at DHS only fourteen percent get paid through the shutdown because their agencies have other sources of money revenue beyond congressional appropriations. So they got that most of the seventeen thousand employees at the US citizenship and immigration services. They process the applications, the silent requests, the pilings all that kind of thing. But there are part of them that are on the job there, unpaid. And then there's those that are furloughed until there's a deal so thirty two thousand. Thousand are furloughed until that happens. So there's gonna there's gonna be I mean, it's just crazy. There's like an irony here. Right. And this isn't an easy softball won. The wall is the thing, but immigration is the thing that's toppling and getting worse. So the immigration court is shutdown over immigration. Judges have calendars booked three to four in advance three or four years in advance. Because the backlog of cases now all these cancellations that's going to be more of a backlog. The we've got problems with the detainment all of that. We're visit all lined up. Wow. You know, what's the answer? And the president listen he's saying this can't happen. There's other there's other places that have a wall. And this was my favorite comparison. He did say, listen other countries have walls it works. I wanna wall. This is what we need. And he said that the wall can't be immoral because I guess some people are saying it's immoral from conversations long ago. Because look the Vatican has walls around them. So walls work one hundred percent. We look at all these countries that have walls, they work. It's never going to change a wall is a wall. The Vatican has the biggest of them all. So this with the demands that congress approved the five billion in funding for a wall to build along the southern border, no budget yet. We've had this partial shutdown since December twenty seconds. Wow. Coming up tough day in Hollywood. And in the world of music as well, and oh it comes in threes. Jess that is we're talk about it. Next on the flip side was me, Kate Delaney here on ESPN. Back loves Mike craft Madden. My back loves Mike riff medic. Ben, my dad that loves my crap Matic adjustable bed these aren't actors..

"Positions that they're in that will be one that will be one test to see how sec- how Mitt Romney Senator Romney challenges President Trump within the next hurdle is going to be how does he vote in the end on the floor. And my hunch is maybe David will disagree with me. But my hunch is that when push comes to shove if the nominee is on paper is qualified to be in the position in the position. I don't see someone like a Senator Romney who is who is all about order and respect for the institutions denying a president leave aside who the president is but denying or president his nominee for particular brand cabinet position. I think you'd see Senator Romney voting four a Justice cavenaugh but against a. Of an attorney general Whitaker. He is going to act like a Republican and people who watch him for especially on the station need to understand. You cannot ask them to be different from who he is. But President Trump today down a marker that is I think a real clocks, and especially for Republicans at the end of us in the middle of his cabinet session. Today, he delivered an endorsement of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine and not only did the thing that was so remarkable with that is not only did he endorse it. But he endorsed it in terms that only someone who is really listening very closely to the way today's Russia talks about then Soviet Union would know in a way that very few people. Someone doesn't follow the news closely with President Trump would do and yet he picked up on the Soviet the false Russian claim that the invasion then happened is response to terrorism. I think you're going to see Romney at his most effective when you speaking up for traditional Republican views, especially in foreign policy against the president is going to be under fire because of the questions is this. Residence foreign policy view driven by compromise. Go ahead Jonathan quickly real quickly on the loyalty piece because you played that before the president saying, I hope he's a teen player. He's hoping Romney is going to be loyal to him. But again, these nights words that he said about Romney. We know they're only going to they're not going to last very long Jonathan Cape part in David Frum. Thank you for joining us on. Our first episode of Senator Romney Voces, President Trump. There will be more. They. And when we come back. A new report says that Russians were pressuring Paul Manafort to pay some heavy financial debts, he owed them during the presidential campaign.
