"To be company as we sold within 45 days. And it's probably resold Microsoft and the health officials as we have 160,000 deaths in the U. S. By the way, we're finding out the younger adults are fueling our California's pandemic like never before. Why those massive parties? Large social gatherings, no social distancing and no masks. And it's unraveling all the progress progress to California's making. We were one of the that we were one of the most success story Well, one of the biggest success stories early on That's completely unraveled. I've been covering and we've been hearing about the alleged games among the police officers. At least some police divisions in which the cops had our tattooed and you know they what they do is they give each other credit for shootings. I mean, pretty vicious stuff. Totally contrary to Ah, what legitimate policing should be. There is a whistle blower lawsuit going on right now. And it talks about and it was a specific cop, A SWAT officer sergeant TIM COLUMN May who filed a civil lawsuit whistleblower lawsuit accusing a group of veteran officers within the LAPD known is the SWAT Mafia. And accuses them of creating a culture of violence. Ah unit glorifies deadly force commanders turned a blind eye even though they knew what was going on now to be fair. The's incidents that I'm going to share with. You happened over the course of several years, and there's three of them that Comey commonly mentions. But the bigger picture is that the argument is not. These are isolated incidents that Incidents like that have happened. But even more troubling is the culture, the thinking What's going on with these police officers, which is anathema. Two departments that are looking a de escalation. Two officers that are realizing policing has to be taken to a whole different level and let me share with you one of the seven in May of 2017 There was a house in Sunland, where a homeless man had holed up. And so he was accused or been reported of having a firearm. So the SWAT team shows up and since he's holed up, they requested More firepower. And in came a helicopter equipped for aerial shooting. Now I've been joking about helicopter gunships for a long time. I didn't. I didn't even know that the LAPD T has one of those Equipped for with Ariel shooting, and so they started firing. And not only did they fire into the house But some of the rounds were fired hundreds of feet away. And even after after Soderbergh comes out of the house, bloodied Ah, no weapon. And hey, then drops off the edge of a patio into a ravine and he is pronounced dead. The Police Commission ruled that the officers that opened fire We're not in imminent danger. Too far away to even determine whether a threat existed. 13 officers investigated 12 had used deadly force in a way that was not reasonable and out of policy. And there are a couple of other ones along those same lines. And so the argument is that this culture that existed still exists. Even though AH, the police chief and the mayor Eric Garcetti had said. We're done with that. There will be no culture also the L. A County sheriff's department accused of the same thing. And it's a question of winnowing out and maybe it's generational. Because when you talk about police on the force for 10 15 20 years, it's a different breed of cops that come in that stay there. And when they came in, same thing happened with women. When women first joined the police force, and I remember doing stories about this, and I mean in big numbers they had to buck the old time philosophy. The old timers. No, I I don't want a woman partner I There's no way a woman's going to be a cop and some women were left literally out in the cold by their partners. And one of things about police officers is they rely on each other. You talk about them versus us. And the policing part of that and how that has to change. Where That thinking of them versus us has to change to. We're all in it together. When police think it's them versus us. Part of us is the partnership that police have with each other. And when I took a simulated give me an idea when I took a simulated course. A shooting course and we went into a building. And I was assigned a partner. And The we went into a room and I couldn't see the bad guy and I yelled to my partner. All clearer when he was the bad guy was obviously there. And he took a shot at my partner and killed him. This is a simulation. I said I missed the guy. How come you didn't see him? You have the training and he said, because I relied on my partner. You're my partner. And I trust you. I put my life in your hands. See, that's the thinking that goes on now that still has to go on, but at the same time with the new policing methods, So these incidents of that the whistle blowers talking about I don't necessarily happen ah lot because again, as I said these air three incidents over five years. But It has to be examined very carefully. They're moving in that direction. Although, according to this whistle blower, this former sergeant, the thinking is still there. So now you have the police commission. You have the police chief diving into examining, investigating and hopefully They'll never be a story like this again. I mean, they'll be mistakes made no question about it that you know cops will shoot at the wrong time. They'll use excessive force thinking it's reasonable and then later on, we find out it's excessive. But cultures like this tattoos. The SWAT Mafia Different story. I talk about police. I want to go into that discussion. And remember the Seattle area where they shut off that entire inner city six block area where they simply took it over. Not the police. Mind you the protesters. It was a new community community. Anti police Anti fire fighters couldn't get in. Let me tell you what happened inside there for a moment. And then now we're also going to give you a chance to win $1000 on top of that. All right? Yes, There's the the coaching. All right. Jennifer Jones.
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

Trump's Russia adviser is put on administrative leave
"Am not part of the this. Whatever drug deal that Mulvaney in sunland cooking up on a hill former top Russia official on the National Security Council giving explosive explosive testimony in the impeachment inquiry in November testifying that she was essentially witness to the quid pro quo the center of the scandal for which president trump's now been impeached in the house house? That testimony put former national security adviser John Bolton at the top of Democrats wishlist for witnesses for the Senate trial of President Trump Fiona on a hill interacted with all the players at the center of the Ukraine scandal. She was there for many of the meetings at the center of the scandal because her position top Russia officials at the White House. Just put her at the center of the drama. She ended up being at the center of the inquiry. So here's something to watch for. Nail when Fiona Hill left her job as the top Russia Russia official on the National Security Council. Last summer she was replaced in that job by Tim. Morrison seen here also giving critical testimony in the impeachment inquiry. Tim Morrison lasted less than four months at that job. He quit literally the night before he gave his first closed-door impeachment testimony he walked into that deposition and announced. Oh It's surprise. He had resigned from the White House the previous night. Well after that in November that job top Russia job on the National Security Council at the White House House went to a new guy. This guy's name is Andrew Peak. Mr Pique had been at the State Department before moving over to the White House. He has been in this job less than three months surfed. Morrison was there for less than four months but on Friday this weekend. He was reportedly escorted off the White House grounds. According to Bloomberg News Axios the first to report. NBC News has since confirmed that peak was put on indefinite administrative leave amid a security related investigation. It was expected to travel with President trump to Davos this week but not anymore not after getting frogmarched off the White House grounds. We don't have details yet as to what this is all about. But I mean this job of old jobs right. This is the top Russia post at the White House. It is now vacant for the third time in less than a year since Fiona Hill
Pence to focus on US Iran policy in speech
"The increasingly intriguing question of what did the vice president know. And when did he we know it. Yes the vice president. In the midst of this very high stakes increasingly scary escalation between N- The US government and the nation of Iran were millions of people filled the streets today for the funeral of Qassem Soleimani was essentially seen as the second ranking official in that country. Second most powerful position in that country at least Soleimani was killed in the US air strike last week today. The trump administration announced. What's that they will soon have a public explanation for? What exactly they're doing? And what exactly they're thinking when it comes to Iran but the whole idea. is in terms of explaining their actions and their strategy toward Iran in the wake of this targeted killing now. This explanation from the trump administration as to what their strategy is for Iran. This explanation from the administration is not gonNA come for another week or so and it will not be president trump who gives the country this explanation the critical matter of the utmost and deadliest urgency. They'RE GONNA put off this explanation about what's going on between the US and Iran until next week and it's going to be vice president Mike Pence who gives the speech that is supposed to lay out. US policy toward Iran. And what exactly is going on. And what the strategic not gic thinking was behind this killing of this incredibly revered figure inside Iran why they think the country should wait a a week to get that explanation why it should be vice president. Mike Pence who gives that explanation to US rather than the president himself that remains to be seen. But if the the idea is that there might be less impeachment baggage trailing around after Vice President Mike Pence than there is after president trump and therefore maybe vice president pence might have of a sort of cleaner shot at this issue in the public's mind well maybe that's not true. The question of Vice President Mike Pence is Owned implication in the impeachment scandal is both unresolved and that was sort of back on the front burner. It has been nineteen days since the House voted to impeach president trump for trying to get Ukraine to help him out against Joe Biden for the two thousand twenty election. He wanted announcement from Ukraine that they had Biden under investigation. Impeachment inquiry also found that president trump pressured Ukraine to do that to make that announcement about those investigations by making contingent tinge on the announcement of those investigations. A whole bunch of things that Ukraine wanted including a White House visit for their new president. The impeachment inquiry also found that president trump held up military aid to Ukraine for months while he pressured them to do this domestic political favor for him. I honestly can't believe it's only been one thousand nine days Since the house impeach trump doesn't feel like it's been nineteen months it's been nineteen days and in that brief period in the less than three weeks weeks it has been since he got impeached. We've continued to get new evidence and new information about the scheme for which the president was impeached including a reported communication from the Office of Management and Budget in the White House to a Pentagon official in which the White House official assured. Dod It was president trump personally who was insisting on holding up Ukraine's military aid and a communication reported by Cape Brennan Adjust Security. That ownby official tells tells the Defense Department quote Clear Direction from Portis inning president of the United States to hold the Ukraine aid since the the House vote to impeach president trump. We've also seen new evidence in new documentation of this intense conflict and intense concern within the administration shen that president trump ordering a hold on that military aid to Ukraine was in fact illegal. So here for example is that same defense official who just assured by the the White House that the money was being withheld on direct orders from the president. Here's that same defense official writing thereafter to the office of the Secretary of Defense to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff she says quote do you believe dod is adequately protected from what may happen as the result of the Ukraine obligation. Pause as in. We all know this is illegal. Are we prepared for what's going to happen to us at the Defense Department here if we do this illegal thing that has been directly ordered by the president. So here's what's fascinating in response to that email which was sent from somebody in the Pentagon controller's office to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff are we adequately protected from what may happen as as a result of this right in response to that email to the defense secretary's chief of staff the Defense Secretary's Chief of staff writes back and he says this quote Ukrainian. PM speaks with the vice. President of the United States. Veep Otis on Tuesday. We expect the issue to get resolved that. Why do you expect the issue to be resolved that in fact the Tuesday following that email September first vice president and Mike Pence did meet with the leader of Ukraine? They met in Europe. They met in Warsaw. That's where we got this incredible footage of that room and who was there were you can see all of these people in that room whose careers have blown up and whose lives have changed a lot as a result the result of this scandal. You can see them all in the same shot. I mean in that meeting on the American side of the room. There's Energy Secretary Rick. Perry who of course suddenly submitted his resignation right right as the scandal broke open right next to him is national security adviser John Bolton who also suddenly submitted his resignation right as the scandal broke open right right next to the same row. There's ambassador Gordon Sunland. Who became a star witness in the impeachment inquiry testifying under oath that? Oh yes there was a quid pro quo and it was ordered by President trump. Just behind him in the second row there's Jennifer Williams who was the top Ukraine adviser to Vice President Pence who also became a star impeachment inquiry witness also in that same row. Tim Morrison the top Russia expert on the National Security Council who then himself suddenly announced his resignation on the eve of him also becoming an impeachment inquiry witness and next to him back there in the corner national security official named Earl Matthews who also so work on Ukraine issues who also suddenly left his post as this scandal broke open. I mean who's left within a few weeks of this meeting. In some cases within a few days of this meeting like everybody in that room had their life changed and or their career ended and and now we know from these internal administration documents and communications. That have been revealed in the one thousand nine days since the impeachment vote. We now know that after weeks. Six of freak out inside the administration over president trump holding up this military aid after president trump asking questions about that military aid after him directing the holdup up of the aid after him being advised by everybody in the national security apparatus that he himself appointed that he had to let go with hold on the military aid but he still refused to do so after all of the explicit arguments. We know that happened within the administration that to hold up that aid much longer would constitute a criminal act. We now know. I know that after all those weeks and months of consternation and conflict and concern and CYA inside the administration. We know right before vice president pence went and took this meeting at the highest levels of the Defense Department. The chief of staff to the Secretary of Defense was reassuring other officials inside the Pentagon. Oh don't worry. This is going to be over soon when Mike Pence takes that meeting was the Linski on Tuesday. It's all GonNa get sorted. Why do they think it was all going to get sorted? President trump was just impeached for demanding that Ukraine give him investigations into Joe Biden. That would help two minutes twenty twenty reelection effort and conveying to Ukraine. That they wouldn't get there. No much needed military aid until they made that commitment to do those investigations. So you won't get the military aid unless you agree to do those investigations announce publicly. You're doing those investigations are. You're never gonna see that military aid. We now know that in the defense secretaries office. They thought that that would all click into place as soon as this meeting between Mike Prints and the Ukrainian president took place so it was Mike Pence who was supposed to personally get the assurance from the Ukrainian government at that meeting that they were going to announce the investigations. Because that was the deal right. That's what everybody was waiting. They can't get the military aid until they announced the investigations. Don't worry they'll be able to get the military aid as soon as Mike Pence has that meeting. And that's what they were waiting on right at least according to the chief of staff to the Secretary of defense man man. Whose name is Eric Tuning? He put it in writing. Don't worry this will. All End. Wants Mike Pence takes that meeting. So says Eric Tuning Defense Secretaries Chief of Staff Eric. Tuning the defense secretary staff has just suddenly resigned his job his resignation announced today on the same day that former national security adviser John Bolton again is right there in the room for that meeting and again resigned suddenly without much explanation right right in the middle of the scandal right. As the Ukraine aid was finally being released and the whistleblower complaint was finally being processed and heading toward Congress John Bolton today released a statement saying if he is subpoenaed in the impeachment trial of president trump. He will appear and testify all the Senate is now back in accession. We don't yet know how the Senate is going to proceed with the impeachment trial for President Trump but obviously John Bolton's declaration that he will testify if summoned. He will will testify at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate if they send him a subpoena obviously raises the stakes on the Republican efforts in the Senate to try to a whole the impeachment trial without hearing from any witnesses
Joseph Maguire, Acting DNI, Faced Congress after whistleblower report
"Yuvan of it to Benjamin Sunland if you the people who become household names of the impeachment drama has played out with the house vote now behind us we wanted to catch up with another central character from the very beginning a man who occupies at least for the moment one of the most critical perches in the US government our story begins late on Friday the thirteenth of September which is when Adam Schiff chairman of the house intelligence committee released a cryptic letter we're gonna let our co host Mary Louise Kelley pick it up from here the letter runs four pages on official stationery the big CEO of the intelligence committee on top it is signed sincerely Adam B. Schiff it is addressed to this guy now here I am sitting before you as the acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire that's him testifying before Congress end of September he had received chefs letter which contained very few details but which marked the first public mention of the whistle blower complaint the letter accused McGuire of improperly withholding that complaint from Congress and subpoenaed him to testify now we heard McGuire say there he's the acting director of national intelligence and talk about timing threat to acquire what was your first day on the job my first day on the job was Friday the sixteenth of August and I think I set a new record in the administration for the anticipated before yeah yeah yeah that you had a heck of a first week didn't have much going for the Sir the questions there from New York Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney driving home the point that McGwire took over the job of running U. S. intelligence just four days after the whistle blower a US intelligence official filed the complaint McGuire suggested this was not the way he did version the job going either way Sir if I may my life would have been a heck of a lot simpler without becoming the most famous man in the United don't have settled debatable whether Joseph acquire was then or now the most famous man in the United States but if it felt that way it speaks to the extraordinarily awkward position the acting di and I found himself in caught between a White House looking for loyalty and lawmakers looking for answers since his appearance before the house intelligence committee McGuire has kept an exceedingly low profile no interviews we asked for one we're gonna spend these next minutes looking closely at the DNR job whether it matters that we are now past four months and counting with an acting director at the home the longest period without a Senate confirmed permanent leader of US intelligence since the job was created fifteen years ago today I'm asking Congress to create the position of the national intelligence director George W. bush in the White House rose garden two thousand four over in Congress they were listening we were breaking for the August recess and not I decided to call our committee back into session and we began the hearings Republicans Susan Collins of Maine she chaired the Senate governmental affairs committee I felt a sense of urgency because this was already two thousand for the terrorists attacks had happened on nine eleven two thousand one and the nine eleven commission had just released its final report it zoomed in on a failure to connect the dots that the CIA the FBI and others weren't sharing what they knew the report had ideas for how to prevent anything like nine eleven from ever happening again the central crowning recommendation a new position someone who could force intelligence agencies to talk to each other so Collins and Joe Lieberman then the committee's top Democrat got to work I remember you couldn't figure out what you were going to call this position to start with it was the need for a little while I was going to say and for awhile it was the Ned and I remember Joe Lieberman saying we can't call it the no that sounds too much like the net yeah it has to be the D. N. I. doesn't sound in power exactly what to call it was the least of their problems senator Collins told me the turf battles were in once it was vehemently opposed by not only the CIA but particularly the secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld because his department was going to lose considerable power over the intelligence community's budget which was funneled through the department of defense but as you heard his boss President Bush was on board and in December two thousand four Congress passed the most sweeping intelligence overhaul in nearly sixty years by the following February bush was announcing his pick for the nation's first director of national intelligence vesting these are stories in a single official who reports directly to me will make our intelligence efforts better coordinated more efficient and more effective the director of the CIA will report to John John was John Negroponte at the time he was US ambassador to Iraq I tracked him down here in Washington this week and asked about that last bit of the president's remarks that the head of the CIA would report to him that's correct there were gathering no it did but you know it it it took some socializing and some explain simply socialite water like a devoted some water had to go under the bridge in the fifteen years that that water's been flowing under the bridge the office of the D. N. I. has expanded to a staff of thousands the exact numbers classified as we can quarters building is gone up in northern Virginia so has all this worked has having India nine made us safer again the sponsor of the original legislation senator Collins I do believe that it has been successful but it's not perfect I I do hear a criticism bet they demand nice office has grown too big too bureaucratic so I'm not saying that we got it perfect leave right but compared to where we were we have come and the norm this way I heard a similar view from Mike moral who was among those who required some socializing two years Negroponte's word moral serve more than thirty years at the CIA he was president bush's briefer on nine eleven and ended up the agency's deputy director moral opposed creating video and I thought the more obvious solution was to bulk up the authorities of the head of the CIA botch I evolved over time significantly so by the time I left government in two thousand thirteen the last week that I was deputy director I actually got in my car and drove to Capitol Hill and met with senator Collins and senator Lieberman it actually thank them so I was I started out in one place and I ended up in a completely different place pressed as to why morale who now hosts the intelligence matters podcast pointed to his former gang delivering the president's daily brief in the old days he says it was pretty much only CIA material that made the cut whereas now with a D. and I overseeing everything the president's likely to hear from shore the CIA but also the state department's intelligence branch or the Pentagon's defense intelligence agency the deer so when CIA wrote a piece say on a China issue and de I a had a different view it would actually say at the bottom of the page de I a has a different view here it is here's why they have a different view and here Mister president is why this matters to you this difference matters to you so and and I think that makes for better intelligence support for the president John Negroponte the original GNI has mixed feelings about the job he once held here we are fifteen years later mmhm as an experiment has it worked I would say it hasn't failed I'm not sure it's worked fully I think it's still a work in progress on the positive side ambassador Negroponte points to changes he helped put in motion such as integrating the F. B. I. more closely into the broader intelligence community then he pauses and adds mistakes still get made obviously we see that from the inspector general's report just now with respect Carter page and all that I was an egregious seems to have been an egregious mistake of some kind which shows that those problems of coordination don't just go away because you say they should the reference there to the DOJ inspector general who just last week delivered a report documenting all kinds of errors in the F. B. I.'s application to surveil one time trump campaign aide Carter page now can we draw a direct line between the D. and I roll and the F. B. I. **** ups know what is fact is last week so president trump tweeting the FBI is quote badly broken which brings us back up to this moment the president attacking what he has come to call the deep state the house voting to impeach the president following an inquiry originally put in motion by a US intelligence community whistle blower the usual array of national security threats on the radar from Iran to China to North Korea and no sign of a nomination for the top job in US intelligence it is definitely a problem that I had the president has not nominated a permanent Senate confirmed Deanna Republican senator Susan Collins if the people in the intelligence community do not know whether the acting D. N. night is going to be there next week they are going to be less responsive to his concerns to his directives and bad is a problem so I would urge the president to make a choice my put her argument to someone with firsthand experience Michael moral can I was acting director of CIA twice so I know what I'm talking about here you don't feel as empowered as you would if you are Senate confirmed because you know you're not gonna be there that long just how awkward position then does Joseph McGuire find himself in four months and four days after being named acting director of national intelligence world points out that requires a navy Vice Admiral thirty six years in uniform this is a guy has actually been shot at right in combat this is a guy who's who's injured a lot but I think what he's learning is that the political fire is often more challenging than actual weapons fire navigating impeachment era Donald Trump dominated Washington in other words it's a different game morale as I hope he's learning
US lawmakers clash over impeachment charges against Trump
"Today. The House Judiciary Committee is marking up. The articles of impeachment in a confrontational televised hearing. Were also learning new details about the inevitable Senate trial early next year. I've got to fantastic guests. Tell me unpack all the news of the day in a few minutes. We'll be talking with White White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks that CNN. Political analyst. April Ryan but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN producer and reporter the relentless Marshall. Cohen Marshall Thank you so much for being here on the podcast. Thank you David so I want you to hear a little bit of sound from today's hearings now just I said marking up. The what is happening here is actually like the normal legislative process. What you know when When a bill gets introduced in committee it gets marked up that means each side? Has the ability need to make amendments to the bill change it and the committee homes that bill and then passes that to the full House and that is what is happening with these articles of impeachment. Now of course. The Democrats crafted these articles. They're very comfortable with the language and they're trying to change anything. Republicans are being given the opportunity Obviously To be able to slow roll this day make their political points Try to amend the articles but they're outvoted time and time again. procedurally These two articles are likely to be passed out of committee before the day is done and then onto the house floor for a vote next week. But that's the process. Here's the rhetoric I want you to I hear hear from Congresswoman Pramilla Jal of Washington state will any one of my colleagues on the other side. Say that it is an abuse of power to condition aid to condition aid on official acts. We'll forget about president trump. Aw Forget about President. Trump is any one of my colleagues willing to say that it is ever okay for President of the United States of America to invite foreign interference in our elections. Not a single one of you has has said that so far what I heard jibe. How say this Marshall? Today my ears perked up because she was really trying to remove donald trump from the equation and really focus on the fact that Republicans on the hill. Her colleagues on the other side of that day are would from her perspective blindly in lockstep with him no matter what so her her whole arguments here stripped him out of it. Are you okay with this presidential behavior. We've heard from a couple of Republicans. Mike Turner of Ohio will hurt Texas that have indicated the the phone call with Dolinsky that trump's language was not okay. I mean I think Turner used that that exact phrase Mr President. This is not okay yet. He fully does oppose impeachment She wishes it. Was that simple though. You could just strip trump out right hand mant trying to make an argument larger about Republicans here right about being just blindly lockstep with him. But they don't agree with her on the merits of this. Either right she's she said said two things she said trump Conditioned official acts on these favors number one and number two solicited election help from Ukraine crane. Now Democrats are in lockstep. That that's what happened Most outside observers that are acting in good faith would say that that is apparently apparently what happened but the Republicans dispute both of those right they say number one there was no direct proof that trump conditioned the military aid aide on the investigation. And you didn't hear that From anyone not even sunland right. Who said a Gordon Sunland the US ambassador to the U.? You who said that. It was conditioned on the White House invitation but not necessarily the military and then secondly we've been hearing this all day from Republicans today they're not conceding the ground that this was trump soliciting election. Help they're still arguing and they've been doing all day that this was trump trying to crack down down on corruption because Burris MMA The Ukrainian energy company was corrupt. And Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was involved with these corrupt crooked get actors so problem with the ground. Marshall can you point to all the other places that Donald Trump has made it policy to fight corruption and using Presidential Oval Office meetings meetings and Military aid is a way to accomplish cycle no and the Republicans are acting in bad faith by pushing both of these points it strains credulity ability it it defies logic. It's it's not a good faith. Argument here is perhaps a better argument from the Republicans that I wanted to hear from a Republican Congressman of California in Utah McClintock. His argument is really neither of those things. It is that the president has the ability to set policy here. And what is At core in McClintock's point of view here is all of these witnesses. You've heard from data policy disagreement of the way he was managing the Ukraine relationship relationship and priority. Here's McClintock MR chairman. The constitution introduces the President. With fifteen words. Executive Power shall be vested in a president under the United States of America. It does not vest any authority in Lieutenant colonels the NFC Ambassador State Department officials are Cabinet Secretaries Rotarians the only authority that these officials exercise is delegated to them by the president so all of the criticisms and resentments Johnson personal and political disagreements. That we've heard from those officials are completely irrelevant. I give him some credit there for making a a constitutional to tional argument on the constitutional question of impeachment. Is he right well. The president does get to set the policy but if the the policy is essentially that the United States government should be used to help the re election of Donald J trump then okay. The president sets that policy but it's in his own personal interest. The outcome of that official policy is for his his personal benefit and as Democrats describe it. What you just described is in violation of the Constitution and the oath of office that he swore You know when he became president. That is Nancy Pelosi's ultimate point right when when we discussed this yesterday. Whenever she's pressed on the politics of this she she goes to her oath of office to protect and defend and uphold the constitution and that the president violated that very oath that he also takes? Ah On she's not you know hooting and hollering and making a big show out of this in many ways. It's been very much reluctant march to get here. And and you know I think the strongest proof of that is that when Nancy Pelosi in the Democrats took over in January of this year. They didn't impeach anybody they didn't even they tried to snuff out talk of impeachment and anytime did any of the more Liberal members of their caucus started bringing it up Pelosi's he just shot it down over and over the are largely here. I think it's pretty clear that they are here because they feel like the president forced them to do this that he was so so unconstitutional and so much putting the integrity of our next election at stake that they had to do it period. So where do we go from here. Marshall so These articles get passed out of committee. Today I assume on a party line vote. We have no indication that there's a Democrat on judiciary. WHO's not in favor of these? These articles of impeachment and judiciary is known to be a a more partisan committee of all the committees on on Capitol Hill And then we see action on the House floor Lord but what happens between now and then yeah right so the question is going to be. How many Democrats are going to break ranks and joined the Republicans a few have already stated their opposition? No big surprises there I think that the the same guys that voted against authorizing the inquiry are going to be voting against impeachment number two of those Jeff Andrew of of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota. That's right so no big surprise there I don't think that anybody really believes that. Either of these articles of impeachment each mint will get voted down by the house. It seems like there's a They've crossed that threshold based off of where we are right now. That could change but You know is it going to issue going to drop. Is Nancy Pelosi to lose more to this. Point where it's kind of embarrassing and people will sort of get second thoughts and feel like it's limping. Something over to the Senate or will they keep it in the low single digits. Maybe you can count it on one hand and say well it's too bad that we didn't get any Republicans but look we still have a clear majority very few defections and we did our jobs and now we'll kick it over to our colleagues in the upper

Trump knew about whistleblower complaint when he released Ukraine aid
"A new story landed from the New York Times according to the newspaper. President trump has already been briefed on the whistle blowers complaint complaint when he released the congressionally approved military aid do Ukraine. It's under triple byline. That includes Michael Schmidt who standing by to join us in just a moment. He and his colleagues write quote lawyers from the White House. Counsel's office told Mr Trump in late August about the whistleblower complaint explaining planing that they were trying to determine whether they were legally required to give it to Congress. The revelation likely shed some light on Mr Trump's thinking at two critical article points under scrutiny by impeachment investigators his decision in early September to release three hundred ninety one million insecurity assistance to Ukraine and his denial ambassador around the same time that there was no quid pro quo with Kiev. Remember trump was so clear when talking with Gordon Sunland on that

"And then his ambassador Sunland version now the other thing that I think is important to look at here as investors sunland can be described as an outlier everyone else in this in this equation is a career public servant no relationship with President no reason to defend him or live at any of this ambassador Sunlen and I'm not suggesting he's lying but let's just look at the facts he has he's the only one of all of the players so far who is a political appointee close to the president and would arguably have a reason to carry the president's water or defend him against a narrative that would be harmful to him and his presidency so it's it's not hard in my view so far to figure out which side is telling the truth in which side is not well David here's the other question I mean you know not in all instances but in some of them sunland uses the I don't recall right when he he says you know the they never shared most giving is obviously definitive but in many other cases says I don't recall it which you know I feel like people while the President United St that's right and written testimony to Robert Muller he used a word or a phrasing similar of that in one thousand nine hundred twenty two of his answers right people generally use that one go ahead David no that would people generally use that Aaron where they don't recall I mean there's no any lawyer all lawyers on this on this panel tonight tell you that's a perfectly acceptable legal answer and let's let's not forget here let's let's look step back and look the colonel testified about today in his test not today the curdle talked about the phone call that he participated in he said it his his recollection of events track exactly league almost to the word he said what the transcript which was released by the White House colonel never seen never said never mentioned once that he I thought that there was a mention of a quid pro he did not like the fact he did not like the fact that the president was talking about an investigation but there was no quid oh quo he didn't testify about that today we don't know what was that okay but on that we do we do military and the United States says but I I want you to do a favor I I don't know I never use the words quid pro quo no one uses those words asks they're listening to the facts yeah we're in a statement you show me where statement released and he says the there is no link between the meeting and aid he's specifically its discussions that he doesn't say any such thing he just talks about the fact that he was extremely it was on the call ever talked to the president trump the prize that we still hear from people who are trying to defend the president by trying to explain to the rest of America that somehow there was not a quid pro quo there was clearly equipped Brokaw and just one more one more thing about based bourbons statement about what lawyers do and how they advise their clients lawyers advise their clients to say I don't call when their clients say to them that they don't recall lawyers do not advise clients to say I don't recall in an effort to protect especially witnesses or wealthy intelligent people they often think they're too clever by half and they can fool the investigators expressing a narrative with confidence witnesses something that embassador song apparently did not anticipate other witnesses and other evidence are coming forward to contradict his narrative that's the explanation we're gonNA stay with me we'll just emphasize that it is it is something to point out but everybody else involved in these conversations or calls remembers exactly what we said except for third place in a crucial early state third place should he worry hey everyone new boss files episode is out it is our one hundred episode and we are so excited to continue sharing these inspiring conversation with you on our podcast I sat down with former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd blankfein citizen by CNN conference live event with newsmakers cross industries to talk about critical issues his story is fascinating being born in public housing in Brooklyn making it the Harvard by age sixteen and then making millions on Wall Street so he goes both sides of the proverbial tracks I asked him what he thinks of Bernie Sanders statement that billionaires should not exist in America he also told me he's opened rich pay more in taxes and says capitalism is not dead but it must be more fair so check it out today subscribe to boss.
