Pompeo 'listened in' on Trump call with Ukrainian president; Giuliani subpoenaed

"Let's start with this big big story of course which has to do with the whistle blower and room and the whistle blower testifying and the whistle blower is an official with the CIA and then Mike Pompeii of the secretary of state who was supposedly among the officials who listened in on that July twenty fifth phone call between the president and the Ukrainian president that is the information that was released by the state department on Monday there was a disclosure that ties to the state department more closely than originally thought in this house in each man in Korea that's where that all came out so Pompeii is participation the call wasn't reported before that and it was one of the newest developments related to the controversy centering on the repeated urging by the president that the Ukrainian president cooperate with Rudy Giuliani who of course is the president's personal attorney and Attorney General William Barr on investigations into Joe Biden his democratic rival and of course his son hunter who had ties to Ukrainian energy company so Monday the house committee's subpoena Giuliani turned over all the documents related to any communications with the trump administration about his efforts in the Ukraine as well as any other documents and then they have a duty. eight on that of October fifth two teens there's another due date flying around up there at the end of the week more documents related to the phone call have to be produced by Mike Tom tale but of course then the rob is well who signs the subpoena and how much teeth is there in the. enough so it it's it's interesting that the Ukraine is the is the focus and it's it's where we sit at this point because remember there are comments that Pompeii made at the United Nations General Assembly meeting and he didn't mention his participation in the call but said that the complaint was filed by someone who had secondhand knowledge. and just days before that he said he opposed releasing the record of the call. and said that he would defer to the White House on whether to do so or not so he's kind of dance around that you've got three house committees foreign affairs intelligence oversight. that did subpoena him for documents and said he has until October forced to produce them the committees are going to depose the former US ambassador to the Ukraine the US special envoy to the Ukraine the Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian affairs you get it I mean there's a whole bunch of people related to where information the information final would be who are going to be part of the people that are being subpoenaed and compelled to testify where it ends up in and what the whistle blower has to say is is really more than the curiosity now it is at the heart of the matter and if the whistle blower who is expected to testify soon in the house will they protect the identities probably going to protect the identity of the whistle blower it hasn't been made public except for just say it's a man who works for the Central Intelligence Agency the Wall Street journal was talking about that and the house is waiting for the whistle blowers attorneys to receive security clearances and then they'll move forward they say they're going to get the unfiltered testimony of the whistle blower and that they're taking all precautions to protect his identity but you know how that is I mean I these identities get can get leach proved he pretty pretty easy but it's not clear how the whistleblower would testify without risking exposure I mean how do you do that I can think of many instances where where the thought was that you were protected and then you you weren't but there certainly would be secure rooms and there would be rooms available on Capitol Hill where they would give the whistle blower that anonymous. he is getting you know given that the the anonymous presence that they're seeking but still it began with the people that are that roam around those those quarters I think it's pretty tough I think I'd be pretty tough I I really I do and you you have to sneak them out of the building you would have to do that you have to cordon off the area is to get the men you'd have to get people in and out of buildings without being identified but of course when you have a group of people the exposure just kind of ratchets up and this is gonna be one to watch because here's what I'm betting. I'm betting that is going to be next to impossible to protect the whistle blowers identity and the longer this drags out I think the harder that becomes because the speculation continues and listen there's reporters with deep ties who've cover Washington for a long time and who specifically have covered the CIA and the state department and who's to say that there's some people who don't know who that is and it somehow. does not leak

UK MP's SPA with government after suspension and we're all in big trouble climate panel sees Dia Future. It's Wednesday the September twenty five. I'm Anthony Davis a the White House released the details of a phone call between president trump and his Ukrainian counterpart that has triggered a US impeachment inquiry it shows Mr Trump asked Vladimir's Alinsky Alinsky on July twenty fifth to investigate Democratic candidate Joe Biden who son worked for Ukrainian gas firm. Mr Trump denies withholding US military aides to Ukraine as leverage in a bid to smear his political rival. Mr Biden the trump Ukraine phone call is part of a whistle blowers complaint reacting to the controversy this morning the United Nations General Assembly in New York. Mr Trump said it was the single greatest witch hunt in American history the Democratic leader of the House of Representatives Speaking Nancy Pelosi through her weight behind the official impeachment inquiry a House vote to impeach the president for high crimes and misdemeanors under the US Constitution could trigger a trial in the Senate on whether to remove Mr Trump. I'm from office. Mr Trump had promised that a complete fully declassified an unredacted transcript of the July twenty fifth call would be released aced but the details disclosed by the White House this morning would notes of the conversation taken by US officials listened in the July coal occurred days days off to Mr Trump directed the government to withhold around four hundred million dollars in military aid to Ukraine but there is no discussion of that money in in the memorandum released by the White House according to the notes Mr Trump mentions to Mr Zilenski how Joe Biden as US vice president lobbied Ukraine in in two thousand sixteen to fire its top prosecutes have victims shokhin during the coal the US president also asked Mr Zielinski to work with US Attorney Attorney General William Bar and Mr Trump's personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani to look into the matter according to the notes the president's word set set the parameters of the political debate to come with Democrats saying that it laid the predicate for an impeachment inquiry and trump dismissing it as a nothing coal yet the rough transcript clearly shows trump's willingness to engage a foreign leader on matters directly related to his reelection prospects British lawmakers returned to the House of Commons today venting their pent up anger over Prime Minister Boris Johnson's failed attempt to suspend parliament and warning democracy itself is under threat from the government senior officials in Johnson's Johnson government sparred with lawmakers of all parties on their first day back after Britain Supreme Court decision declared that the prime minister's move to suspend the body for five life weeks was illegal because it thwarted debate over Brexit Johnson plans to address parliament later in the day after returning in haste from the UN General Assembly in New York Johnson remains on a collision course with parliament over his determination to pull Britain out of the European Union on the thirty first of October with or without a withdrawal agreement parliament has passed a law requiring him to seek a brexit extension.

Boris Johnson and Trump: Whose day was worse?

Boris Johnson and Trump: Whose day was worse?

"Welcome to the program everyone. I'm Christiane Amanpour in New York where world leaders speaking at the United Nations General Assembly President Donald Trump's speech was heavily focused focused on his domestic reelection agenda lashing out at what he called a permanent political class he railed against China and Iran too and later though he seem to relax at a meeting with his closest European soulmate the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson but both face major crises at home controversies as the call into question their commitment to the rule of law and democracy itself here in the United States the latest scandal to engulf the president his phone call to the Ukrainian leader and request to investigate his political opponent the former vice president Joe Biden and he is now facing renewed calls for impeachment here's what the president had had to say as he arrived at the UN. It's a witch hunt. I'm leading in the polls. They have no idea how they stopped me the only way they can try through impeachment humint. This has never happened to President before. There's never been a thing like this before. It's nonsense and when you see the call when you see the readout of the call which I assume whom you'll see at some point you'll understand. That call was perfect. It couldn't have been nicer and even the Ukrainian government put out a statement. That was perfect call. There was no pressure. Put on them whatsoever. So of course we are waiting for a transcript that call but as for Boris Johnson before he took to the podium the Supreme Court at home home issued a momentous decision that is controversial five weeks suspension of parliament was in fact unlawful and it's another in a string of severe blows that he suffered since becoming prime minister and vowing to push brexit through do or died. Yes obviously this is a voted that oh we will respect and we respect the judicial process so I have to say I strongly disagree with what the justices found I didn't think that right but we will go ahead and Paul comeback and parliament is coming back tomorrow so democracy. Chrissy and rule of law are in focus on both sides of the pond today with me now to discuss share our oh he's the former French ambassador to the United States and also to the United Nations and Jane Harman. She's president and CEO the Wilson Center and she also served nine terms as a member of Congress. Well let us get to the heart of the matter I started by saying both these issues that we've highlighted do in fact speak directly to the commitment of our leaders to the rule of Lauren democracy. Let me ask you first because the president of the United States is in the crosshairs right now well they both fit it was interesting to hear Boris Johnson and just say that he will respect the decision. I think the alternative is to go to jail in Britain. It's very clear what the role of that court is. and I think that means that he may lose his majority because what will happen unless he can pull a no brexit deal together which he doesn't seem to be able to do you may have to extend the deadline is that Farrage Farraj brexit tears will bail from the Conservative Party and I I don't know where the future leadership of what about the president of the United States. I mean here now. There's increased pressure on Nancy Pelosi who stood back from this idea of getting in meshed in an impeachment but this huge amount of pressure on her now right here is ah of course the rule of law should prevail here. I think it's important to see what the whistle blower wrote and I think it will either leak or be given to Congress soon and then we'll we'll have more information. I think a partisan impeachment is a very sad result of this. Should it come to that. I saw the movie in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight against Bill Clinton. what happens is the president gets stronger. This will feed his sense of grievance. You just showed a a piece where he said that hat and and it will keep us divided instead if we wait and get more information and there is a bipartisan way forward. I think that will be much healthier for the country and for the rule Jira aerobic. I WanNa ask you also about well. Let me ask you I actually about the UK Parliament and the You you K- Supreme Court that has determined that it was unlawful and unconstitutional. What Boris Johnson did I know you're looking at it also in a lens of Brexit. How what do you make of the rule of law aspect of it? I think it would be embarrassing. Ears debt for a lot of citizens especially you know the people walk close to the the populist wave that we are facing it could appear as a new attempt by the establishment to block brexit and so I do think whatever my personal feelings towards Brexit of course I would prefer the UK to remain in European Union. I think that the UK has to leave you. You you know fifty. Two percent of the of the British voted for it you know in France we add a referendum in two hundred five here about the EU Constitution Institution fifty five percent of the French said no and eventually it went through the parliament and today the populist are still saying you stole the vote of the French so I I really again. We have to respect the rule of law but we have also to understand that there is a sort of tension between what the citizens want expressed express their anger and decision of the judge really interested to hear you both you on the on the on the Donald trump situation that an impeachment might in fact strengthen him and you're Democrat so I'm saying it in that regard and actually produce a backlash and you're saying that even the Supreme Court ruling might produce a backlash. That's interesting. I mean Boston well. I think there is an alternative. I I think Nancy Pelosi suggested last week that the the procedure of the office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department that prevents sitting President President from being indicted might be overturned by legislation and if courts consider. Let's come back to court whether Donald Trump pass committed crimes. I think that would be better than a partisan impeachment. What worries me about this is that there will be democratic. Support in the Senate a Dick Durbin has just come out in favor of impeachment and there is growing a consensus in the Democratic Caucus in the house so I think she probably has to move well. I'm a hearing actually that CNN sources are confirming that Speaker Pelosi is going to start an announce the process towards impeachment the formal the process which everyone knows is is basically the beginning of impeachment but what happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight was not pretty the better movies to the Democratic Ready President Bill Clinton and Republican stampede to impeach him. several counts were adopted in the house but in the Senate he was not convicted it and what happened was he got stronger and the driving force got weaker. the better movie was in the early seventies when I was a young council in the Senate the Nixon impeachment which was bipartisan bill call in then a freshman in the house later a Republican senator and then Secretary of defense had the courage to join the Democrats crats and the whole inquiry was much more low key in serious and after that the Democratic Senate leaders are the Senate leaders Republican Senate leaders came to Richard Nixon and said you will be convicted and he resigned and that was an orderly process based on whatever were were the facts at the time so I'm hoping that if it comes to this and impeachment is very sad thing to happen but if it comes to this and there certainly are a lot of allegations out there that it will be bipartisan and it we'll be done in a manner that gets the respect of not just our country but the world I mean so far. There is no indication at all that they'll be bipartisanship because the Republican Party has become the trump party in terms of all intensive for people who are leaving running against trying to run against the three of them Gerardo. I would like to play you a couple of soundbites because I want to ask you about the credibility of some of the reasons that president trump is giving for having tried to talk to the Ukrainian president. I'm I going to play the one that that he said earlier the conference talking about a congratulatory they treat message to the Ukrainian president. It's just play that conversation I had was is largely. Congratulatory was largely corruption. All of the corruption fixing play was largely the fact that we don't want our people like the vice. President Biden is done creating big corrupt already in the Ukraine

They started having military Harry parades to show their strength and despite all this both countries say this week in the spirit of the United Nations they are gonNa work to find a peaceful resolution at ABC's Connor Finnegan in who covers the State Department. He has made the trek up here in New York good to see in person connor great to be here so where is this conflict at right now and where is it heading. I think we're at a bit of a pause right now. Administrations taking this on in a serious way and we are working diligently to see that this has diplomatic outcome. We've heard Secretary of State Mike Pompeii on Sunday telling our ABC's Martha Raddatz that they want a peaceful resolution to this. I think the issue is that neither side is really working with each other to get there. There will probably really not be a meeting between president trump and President Ruhani at the UN is not even one of those things where he grabs a guy by the arm and says hey. The president wants to talk to you in the morning. I've been told by senior State Department official that there are no plans even for a lower level meeting between officials ever off Adebola blakely but I have no intention abating with Iran and so with the US is going to try to do instead is to galvanize the international community to act and they're really trying to put Saudi Arabia at the forefront of that they say this is an attack on Saudi Arabia Mike Pompeii the secretary of state calling it an act of war against Saudi Arabia and a senior department official told me Sunday that they want the Saudis them to take the lead in presenting venting evidence to the United Nations and getting other countries to join their side in this to Dade really the Europeans have held off on taking us I between between the US and Iran despite obviously decades alliance with the US because they believe that president trump pulling out of the Iran deal has really pushed Iran to act in this aggressive well that we kind of started this ball roll exactly and at this point they want both sides to de-escalate so the game plan from the trump administration is saying. Hey don't do this for us. Don't do this for the world's oil supply do it for Saudi Arabia and they're getting bomb exactly Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that this was an attack by one st on another state. We hope the United Nations will take a strong position it was it was designed exactly for this kind of thing if nothing else the United Nations was setup to deal with this kind of situation and to penalize the country that conducted that attack okay so that's the Iran conflict. Is that what you're kind of expecting to headline the UN General Assembly or are there other things we should be expecting to see you know I think for the US that will permit a lot out of their meetings this week and that's really one of the things trying to focus on but there are two other things I think to watch throughout the general simply I is this climate summit aw Antonio Gutierrez the Secretary General United Nations is hosting really sort of in parallel with the General Assembly a summit to focus on Climate Mitch Change and he'll have a series of big name speak at this United Nations some love French President Emmanuel macron Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi climate activist abyss Greta Thornburgh public and so many people are listening to me tonight. I'm trying to service that position into to making a change what's key here. It's who isn't showing up and that's president trump. Neither he nor any senior. US official Wu is going to speak at this climate some instead the US would be represented by a senior State Department official in the Bureau of Ocean and Environmental Science Fairs Rocket. Man is on a suicide aside mission for himself. I think the other thing that I'll be watching is that podium at the General Assembly. We see basically every world leader come to the stage and speak week before the General Assembly remember President Trump at his first go at it famously you know call Kim Jong Lil rocket man for the first time at his second go at it. He was actually laughed out while touting his administration's accomplishments didn't expect that reaction but that's okay. It'll be key to watch you know what he says there and as well you know there are a lot of other world leaders. Were coming to that stage for the first time you have Boris Johnson from the U. K. J. Bolsonaro from Brazil some of these more you know quote unquote mini trump's from around the world who will be addressing this multilateral body for the first time when they often tout their country's unilateral action. I was GONNA say if we're talking about. Climate Change Bolsonaro with the first one Brazil always go first and he would actually you'd think agree with trump on climate change proposals out there Connor Finnegan here in New York. Thanks for being here. Thanks Brad if you were in the state of Iowa this weekend that smell wafting through the plains was not just the smell of enough stake to feed twelve thousand people. It was also the smell perhaps of desperation seventeen candidates came to the polk county the steak fry this weekend seventeen who still think they've got a shot despite the rising bar to get into debates but in that crop there is one candidate who seemed their stock unmistakably rise. I'm here today to stand up for the Constitution of the United States of America. Elizabeth Warren got perhaps the best news of her entire campaign this weekend in the form of a poll from the Des Moines Register because this was the first poll to show were catching up to Vice President Joe Biden and this New des Moines Register Iowa poll out yesterday shows Elizabeth Warren overtaking Joe Biden a seven point jump for warn Lauren from June. She seems to have all the momentum. ABC's Rachel Scott is on the campaign trail as always she's in Iowa right. Now and Rachel walked me through this poll that we you just saw 'cause I know we don't like to put too much stake in one poll but this is something that every campaign was being asked about over the weekend. CNN Des Moines Register Says Elizabeth Warren twenty two percent a Ah Joe Biden Twenty Percent Bernie Sanders eleven percent so make both arguments for me here. Make the case for Elizabeth. Warren is your new front runner and make the case for no no. She's not right so the case for why she could be a front runner. There was a few reasons one. She's one of the only candidates that has seen the steady momentum all summer and almost every every poll. She is gaining traction..

UK Supreme Court to give its verdict Tuesday on the legality of the prime minister's suspension of Parliament

"The UK's highest court will rule this week whether the country's Prime Minister Boris Johnson and acted unlawfully when he decided to suspend parliament. Let's get more on this with our regular Westminster. Chronic lowlands price lots works as Tony Blair start of communications when he was UK the Prime Minister Welcome back loans just recap as to where we are today given the conclusion of events in court on Friday yes so for several days last week. The two sides in the collpase presented their arguments to the eleven justices of the Supreme Cream Colt and and not entirely clear whether they come back with judgment today or tomorrow and so much time need to weigh up the arguments but obviously the people have been trying to read the runes over the weekend and there seems to be a feeling growing that the decision may go against the government but on the lawyer and and I think we have to wait in the city wants to just come up with well what the losses oppresses suggesting that the supreme court is minded. It's ruled against the government because of a couple of reasons a degree of scrutiny by the leader of the Supreme Court Lady Hale and the fact that everybody was talking about the remedies which she's what can be done when the government a- found in fold at fault. Is that a suggestion perhaps that the government is in a lot of trouble trouble whether to find against to the the plans to suspend parliament or is this not actually the death blow that many campaign unpainted might be hoping for notice deathblow tour. I'm going to be a huge huge Paris because it's completely unprecedented in participants tickle and judicial history reach so be a major milestone but I think in Boris Johnson's mind and in the minds of leaders of the opposition parties as well is how does this play with the public when the public eventually come to express their view either in the general election ord another referendum. How will they respond to something like this? Will they think this just shows the stories are an incompetent they what they're doing. They're all over the place or will it just be further evidence for some voters sure it will be that kind of the whole establishments and now they could include the Supreme Court in that out to frustrate the the people's will so necessarily when the crucial we'll decisions of aid are made by the public be the death blow that Sir. I think people like you know who's the case and all the politicians who've been supporting the various cases against the government that got to be finally settled either today or tomorrow and nonetheless suggestion this weekend that the prime minister could suspend parliament once again if he so chose well what do yet Paul would come back. We'd have to come but possibly for a day or a Dan Hassle two who days perhaps and then be proved again that second prorogation would be completely illegal. They wouldn't be subject to further court challenge because there is always before the queen's speech but a short one and so in practical terms. It's hard to see what difference going to make it less. If parliament does come back Boris Johnson opponents in parliament use that very very very narrow window to ambush in some people and let's move on to a couple of other things that are bubbling along quite menacingly firstly. Let's talk about the brexit talks all suggestions that in actual fact instead of working towards towards an agreement to leave the European Union with a deal on the thirty first of October. The United Kingdom is engaged in brexit talks going backwards and I'm not sure that would be entirely fair. I was talking to journalists on the plane on his way to New York is sponsored your for a couple of days as for the United Nations General Assembly meeting where he's going to be a having private discussions with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel macron Donald Tusk and some of the other prime minister's and he was sticking to his line that he's cautiously optimistic about reaching a deal and and he some the detail of what he was saying on what he was speaking into journalists was around the ways in which the respect stock could be removed and replaced with other arrangements for trade across the border between North and south so I I think he's still I think genuinely does want to reach a deal if he can and some of the intractable problems which was most able to deal within three years is prime minister. He's trying to resolve it a much shorter period of time but I I I would caution against assuming that actually leads all just for show and doesn't really want to deal. I think he does and tell us as well about the domestic issues of the Labor Party at the main opposition party in the United Kingdom. It is having its annual party conference this week as do all the big parties in this conference season here in the United Kingdom in them. We were supposed to be given a sort of radical agenda of social mobility and paternity for all instead. We've had a weekend where the Labor Party seems to utterly split itself into and we now face vote to votes which conflicts each other at the conference there but what they're positional positional Brexit is yes in Party conferences supposed to be the sort of showcase moment where you present all your policies and save all the fantastic you're gonna do for the country and as as we're all expecting a general election pretty quickly a pre-election conference like this is really essential threatening yet all the headlines have been about the splits and divisions they have been putting forward awesome radical policies and some quite expensive policies as well to be frank about its had on social care for the elderly on abolishing prescription charges so quite radical. I'll stop on education as well and in in other areas but as you say it's all overshadowed by the row over brexit normally there's a thing called the conference arrangements committee they try Ryan sort of fudge. Thin says that there isn't a bus stop on the floor. They failed region agreements last night over the BREXIT. votes to the wilder vote today on the conference floor about Brexit the vast majority of the membership once Labor to become a pro remain party aw that's because the trade unions hold fifty percent of the votes in live conferences and most of the Loyalty Jeremy Corbyn. It's not clear that the membership number should get their way so he's going to be a shoes up at a very very significant and tell us how that leaves the Labor Party in its identity having been a man who worked when Labor when the Labor Party had the clearest idea can ever imagine if what they stood for yes and not unsuccessful in elections as well but put in not not to to to one side I mean there is a battle has been a battle going on for the soul of the Labor Party ever since Jeremy Corbyn became lead of the Party and a lot of people on MRI light my win the absol- Blairite if you want to call it that way of the Party of never really reconciled themselves the Jeremy Corbin's leadership and things have reached a crunch point now all and I think one reason for that is the people already looking to Jeremy Corbin's disappearances leader of the Labour party whether he resigns over there. There's the general election a fails once once again to become prime minister then he would go so a lot of the stuff that we've seen trying to either remove to Watson the deputy leader of the Labour Party or sidelined him. It's all about the succession Jeremy Corbyn and as you say quite rightly the battle for the soul of the Party of what part it really is and the battle lines. It's being thrown who's going to win. That is still clear price. Thank you as ever own monocle twenty four.

"You gotta listen to next week's episode for chapter two of whatever Ellie Lovett's. Let's get to the show about the world's. One year ago I stood before you for the first time in this grand hall. I addressed the threats facing our world, and I presented a vision to achieve a brighter future for all of your Mandy today. I stand before the United Nations, General assembly to share the extraordinary progress we've made in less than two years. My administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country. America's so true. Didn't expect that reaction, but that's okay. That's our president welcome back to pod. Save the world. This is Tommy v. toward that is a clip of the world. Literally laughing at the president of the United States. It doesn't make me happy, but I thought I would play it for you guys. President Trump is spending part of this week in New York at the UN general assembly. That is when all the number countries come together, there's general debate. Leaders give speeches, sometimes there special sessions on really pressing issues like Syria, for example, and then they can meet one on one, but I'm not going to talk about the UN general assembly take because it's not clear to me that the president has any agenda. And frankly, it's pretty obvious that everything he does her says, there's going to be overshadowed by the cavenaugh nomination in by will he or won't he stories about firing rod Rosenstein. So that is why I invited my fantastic guests on today to tasha. Bertrand is a friend of the Pasha staff writer. Earthy Landik. She is one of the best politics and national security reporters out there. We talked about rod Rosenstein week what it would mean for the Muller investigation. What it would mean for the department of Justice generally to have that kind of turnover. And then we went back to talk more about Russia, been some huge pieces of the last few weeks about Russian efforts to hack our elections. We've learned a lot more over the course of a couple of years in tasha walks us through it, including some of the strains associations at President. Trump's teams had with WikiLeaks and a whole bunch of bizarre actors that helped, you know, service cutouts conduits to the Russians. So WikiLeaks other bad actors. So it was a fun conversation. We laughed a lot so we didn't cry. So thanks for listening. And here's the conversation within the fashion. I want to start with my friend rod Rosenstein the deputy attorney general. It's been a hell of a few days for him because I, he was reported that he talked about invoking the twenty fifth amendment to remove President Trump from office and even discuss wearing a wired or record their conversation to build his case, which is really weird. And then on Monday according this on Tuesday, there were reports that he was going to resign. He was forced to run over to the White House grovel and then I guess there's a stay of execution until Thursday. So maybe we could start with the first piece of this, which is the New York Times story about the twenty fifth amendment and the idea that he's looking to record Trump's comments. What do you make of that report in maybe the motives behind however got out. Yeah, I think that you're asking a question that not enough people who've asked which is what would have been Rosenstein reasoning for wanting to record the president. We've heard, of course that he was perhaps being sarcastic. But. But I would not be entirely surprised if he was being serious because of course this was a really sensitive moment are really chaotic moment in the Trump administration, he had just fired Komi. He had just met with the Russians in the Oval Office and disclosed classified information that the Israelis have given us. So there were a whole lot of things happening at the time that made it seem like Trump really was not fit to hold the office. And so you have to look at this suggestion that Rosenstein made through that lens..

I love a good Jaylen JR, especially a daily challenge, which I'm sure we will have as part of the book launching. So if you're interested just Email me at Sarah, a pantsuit, politics, show dot com. There's so much news to get through. We are gonna talk about Brad Kavanagh in our main segment because we continue to have reflections on that. That story continues to develop, but we want to start with some international news. President Trump is addressing the United Nations, General assembly this week, what he is. Going to say, I don't know. There's been reporting that he's going to talk about non-proliferation. There's been reporting that he's gonna talk just about Iran that he's going to tout his foreign policy achievements. I, I have no idea what he's going to say so, and I'm bet that none. No one does until it just comes out of his mouth. The New York Times is reporting that his aides are very worried, not necessarily that he will mouth off, but then he'll be overly enthusiastic with the wrong people which that sounds about right? Like snuggle enough to dictators and stuff. I do you think that that is a really legitimate can real risk for these. These informal like pull asides that happen really hard to plan and the the dynamics of who meets with whom during the UN are hugely important on the diplomatic stage. The president is spending some time with Japan's Shinzo Abay. He has tweeted about that quite a bit obey is both spending this time with President Trump and having a meeting with Iranian president Ruhani, which is seen widely as kind of a subtle way to rebel against Donald Trump. And there's been a lot of reporting about how that's kind of where we are. People understand who he is. Now they understand how to deal with him. And so they are both trying to be gracious with him and deal with the United States as best they can while also kind of Buckingham wherever they can well in the problem is as everyone else gathers, intelligence listens to their advisers takes vice. He believes that he alone can outmaneuver everyone and just act purely on instinct. So he's always mismatched. He's expected to meet with leaders from France, South Korea, Egypt, Israel, in the UK while at the general assembly, and I think these meetings are hugely important and just hope that it goes well, also on the international stage and important dynamic going into the general assembly is that there is pressure for a second referendum on Brexit in the United Kingdom. I think we've all agreed. We all see it was a bad idea. It's not gonna work out the idea that. Boris and the rest of them sold them that we can just it's cool y'all. We held all the cards will get to stay in all the parts of the European Union. And we like, and the one the, you know, the trade zone and dumped the rest of it was a lie and and I feel like they're all just waking up to that and like Theresa May is doing the best that anybody could possibly do in this scenario. They don't hold a lot of cards in the EU is clearly not going to blink, and I hope that they do have another boat so they can be like, okay, that will point taken, but this isn't going to work out. So let's not destroy our economy two point. It's really complicated for prime minister..

"How do you treat some of these underlying causes in case where there's a a significant terrorism and or civil war problem. So the UN announced that the theme for this year shown assembly meeting is making the United Nations relevant to all people, global leadership and shared responsibilities for peaceful and sustainable societies to the UN is relevant today. So are you lost me about centers for their? The UN is pretty good at coming up, sort of pretty bunol phrases like that. I have no idea what that even means. Look to my way of thinking about these things multi-lateralism matters if and when it's a framework in which the major powers find tools with which they can work together to solve problems. And we've seen at various points in history, the major powers including the United States, and the Soviets or the United States sell for now, the United States, the Chinese, the Russians mover. Want to find a solution to a problem needs some place where they can collaborate and it's easier to do that. If there's an established infrastructure for that and a place where they meet anyway, a set of arrangements they can use. That's the potential of the UN to be a place where the major powers come together to solve problems. I'm always resistant to this notion of the UN as kind of solution to global problems and kind of roving for everybody. That's a little bit romantic frankly, where the UN is effective is when powerful countries use it to try to solve problems. So my understanding of the way that the UN Security Council, the wider body Security Council operates is that there's a rotating chair and the United States coincidentally has the chair as the journal someone gets underway. So we'll see ambassador Haley. We'll see President Trump in the chair, kind of leading the discussion. We expect to see what's gonna be listening for in those presentations if they do, and I don't know whether they are, but if they do a presidential meeting of the scared accounts councils only. Been done a handful of times in history. That should be an interesting session to watch. President Trump chairing the Security Council. Bashur Haley has been a very effective Basser the UN she's chosen to make the theme of the presidency corruption. I'm a little torn on that one. Look, I think that corruption is an important part of the international security agenda that kind of massive state corruption of a place like Russia and North Korea is a big part of why those states posed the kinds of challenge. They do Chretien as part of civil wars agenda. That's all fair. I confess I think we are as a country, a place where our credentials to be speaking out on issues of the rule of law are weaker than they should be. That's substantial cost. Okay, fine. That's in the background. She'll try to gender at the UN. If there's a presidential meeting, those tend to be against of acts of drama, more than of substance presidents aren't people who roll up their sleeves negotiate outcomes. They. Posture their country, and we'll see a lot of posturing, but it's within the world of the possible that you could see some alignment of not on the corruption Genda, but on some of the counter terrorism agendas or nuclear proliferation agendas, you could see some alignment of interests among the players at the p. five under American leadership. So once it's all said and done, once the UN general assembly over the delegates back to their countries and what happens to the international peace and security Jenna moving forward?.

"And if it can't harden its own posture, bring more capable troops into its peacekeeping deployments and be part of the answer and pushing back on on terrorism than it's going to start becoming essentially relevant to the management of war. And frankly, that's what we're starting to see. These numbers are Quincy mentally, dental, but they're not from the same phenomenon. It's again, I think it's ninety three percent or certainly about ninety plus percent of battle deaths occur and places where there are no peacekeepers deployed and other words where they're sort of major wars underway. We're not seeing the deployment of UN peacekeepers. Now the UN tends to go into the tail end of a war doesn't go in at the kind of acute, have heavy fighting phase. But even by that standard, we've watched this change over time and in the nineteen nineties. For example, if you did the same measure the number more like forty percent or fifty percents. In other words, the UN was deploying into some of the dangerous wars. Some of the hard cases maybe towards the tail end of. Trying to bring it down to lower levels, but it was certainly a part of the solution said in tapering off levels of civil war. It really isn't part of the solution set right now in dealing with terrorism. And instead you're seeing these informal coalitions, that's fine. One level I tend to believe that over time you get better performance. If you can have a more systematic way of approaching these problems due lessons, learned, share ideas about how to improve your performance, etc. So I would on balance rather see the UN get serious about this problem and have more of those actions undertaken in that framework. But that's an issue. One is gonna have to grapple with because right now is essentially becoming irrelevant to the management of the key problems of international security. What are those tools that the UN general assembly, that the UN as a body has to address these issues apart from two point peacekeeping forces to hot zones? Well, that's a central part of put. So there are some examples where it's doing things like I'm suggesting. So for example, in Mali you have a combined point, you have a French. Deployment you did. It's it's receded. Now you had a French deployment alongside fairly tough n deployment, and those two things together tackled both the rebel movement in Mali and the terrorist organization, Molly and that kind of cooperated in that fight that was a reasonably effective pairing capabilities. But we haven't seen that kind of paring very often. The French are now being replaced by the Dutch and the Canadians in Mali that's still proving to be a an effective arrangement reasonably effective arrangement. But it's one of the only places where we've seen that sort of pairing of capability, sort of heavy fighting forces on the one hand and more traditional peacekeepers in the other to deal with different parts of the problem and variations on that kind of arrangement. It seems to me, you're going to be necessary in a lot more cases than recurrently seeing it, but can the UN also deploy economic and political tools to deal with some of the underlying issues that cause violence to erupt in a place like Mali or even Nigeria to be very precise you're in or the UNH's often. In the official lead of diplomacy through its special representatives of the sector general, etc. But where the UN really has weighed, it's when it seemed to be acting with the support of the permanent members of the scared council so that the UN is kind of a framework through which the United States and France and Britain and Russia and others act. The UN by itself is a particularly powerful entity has power if it's infused with that power by the permanent five. So the political framework for negotiation is often the UN, but it's the power of the key Member States within that that gives it wait, economically. The UN is pretty marginal on these things yet does a lot of development programs. They're pretty flabby to be honest with you, much more significant as the World Bank. The World Bank has a serious problem and how it deals with questions, development and places where there's terrorism, and it's really trying to get his head around how to grapple with that problem. We've begun a dialogue between president Jon Allen and president, Jim Kimball Bank and number of people. On the respective teams to help the Bank through this challenge of how do you do development?.

"So they do operate in quite different spheres and there's not being today to huge amount of overlap. There are some places where they overlap, Molly, for example, there's both a counterterrorism operation and peacekeeping and civil war management operation. They kind of coexist the other phenomenon that were starting to see we talk a little bit about the paper is the spread of counterterrorism. Coalitions, we all know about the global coalition against dash against ISIS that our president Jon Allen lead when it was established. But we've seen several of these come into being a multinational force combating Boko haram what's known as the g fi, which is a group of five countries of the Suhel fighting against an ISIS offshoot in the Saharan desert and North Africa. A similar coalition in northern Uganda dealing with Lord Resistance Army and related groups. So you're starting to see the spread of these sort of informal coalitions to undertake counterterrorism fight quite a lot of countries participating. And that's I think, phenomenon that most Americans aren't aware of and it's happening outside of the UN and so the initial there that has to get result as well. So we've recently observed the seventeenth anniversary of the nine eleven attacks that were carried out by al-qaeda. So al-qaeda comes to mind in this conversation. Can you talk about what is the status of al-qaeda as a global terrorist organization was mentioned earlier? It's metastasized so it's operational punch inside Iraq has been substantially deteriorated. It's operational punch inside Syria has been deteriorated, but that's not to say it has been eliminated by any means, and it's spread throughout the region. We see offshoots of it and Libya Yemen and Mali Nigeria Somalia, and that. Moustache citation is very dangerous for a considerable period of time. We were also watching it developing substantial online recruiting and dissemination capacities. Some of the attacks in Europe that we saw three years ago links into that. I'm not quite sure where that stands. We've seen less of that in the last couple years. It's been hard to know whether that's as a consequence of substantial effective prevention efforts on the one hand or simply because it's put us resources into some of these newer movements on the other. I suspect a little bit of both saw in the paper. Even the co authors identify these characteristics of global security environment, but then you say cutting through all of that are what you call the frontier threat of cyber technology, artificial intelligence. Can you talk a little bit about what those two phenomena are? They're quite different. So first of all, when it comes to cyber will know almost everything we do now is organized around the flow of information via. Computer systems and the vulnerability of those systems to attack to hacking of Roddy at types, cyber, offensive, weapons, etc. Quite acute. We are starting to country to grapple with us and terms of the vulnerability of those systems to major attack and a form of warfare from country like China or North Korea or on, etc. But at the same time, we have to be aware that even group like ISIS would have the capacity to use number of online tools to improve its targeting to improve its some nation to improve recruiting, to try to undermine our systems and Araya way. So that's a concern, artificial intelligence, things going to be a different phenomenon. It's two major parts. One is this may be being exaggerated and some of the contemporary literature. I think. But one is as a infuses itself into Araya forms of industrial technology and displaces work, think about driverless cars, etc. In some context, could have substantial social dislocation and political dislocation effects. I think that's going to be phenomenally over a longer period of time. We're also starting to see the application of artificial intelligence to weapon systems. Thomas weapon systems, the ability to operate a large numbers of drones in swarms so far that's technology that lies primarily in the hands of state actors, but it's not a very complicated technology at this stage, and I don't think it's going to be very long before we see significant terrorist organization, al-qaeda or all kind of two point, oh, using an AA enabled drawn swarm for example, to execute very sophisticated attack on critical system someplace so getting our handle getting our heads around that problem is a growing challenge..

"Challenge of that is this is a region that we have maintained security, and for a long time, the country's it's flexing politically against our allies. Many of them are. And so we see significant threat to our interests and a significant threat to the order that we've backed in the region. It's not an acute military threat, but there are serious flashpoints in East China Sea in the South China, Sea cream peninsula where things could escalate Taiwan straights. And so what we're watching is a relatively rapid. I think escalation of security tensions between the United States and China in Asia. Although I think constrained by a deep debate in this country about what we should be doing Asia or not, and debates in the key Asian allies about these questions. Switching topics. Again, how does the spread of terrorism complicate the global security picture particular? I'm thinking about. These omic state seems like it was pretty severely defeated in the Middle East Iraq and Syria. I make it that wrong, but talk about Islam, estate, talk about terrorism and how that complicates this picture. This is an important question is going to be particularly important as kind of backdrop to the debates at the UN general assembly. One of the phenomenon we've witnessed is that although ISIS was substantially degraded in Iraq as well as to a degree in Syria, it's also metastasized it's taken new forms. It spread into new places. We seen sort of offshoots of ISIS Morphing onto local terrorist movements or rebel movements, variety of type most significantly vocal Horam in Nigeria, which in two thousand fourteen fifteen killed more people than ISIS did very significant organization. We've seen that spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa and parts of sub Saharan Africa's while what's become very significant is the almost total fusion now of the phenomenon source and the phenomenon of the spread of terrorism. One of the things that we point to in the paper as if you look at wars where people are dying in large numbers, ninety three percent of all battle Dessel. The war occurred in countries where there was also a very significant terrorism presence and problem. So there's been a fusion of the counterterrorism agenda on the one hand and the kind of managing civil wars agenda on the other. That's very complicated for the UN because the UN was really a leading actor, managing civil wars during the nineteen nineties in the two, thousands, but it soon extremely shy of taking on a counter-terrorism agenda. The United States has been pretty much the leading actor until pretty recently in driving counter-terrorism Genda. Now there's going to wider coalition of actor supporting that, but we haven't been as central to the management of civil war. You have these kind of two separate James, a civil wars regime on the one hand, an account of terrorism regime and the other, yet the cases, a few. And what we're watching right now is a lot of policy uncertainty and a lot of debate in the kind of disorganized way about how we should be approaching these situations where both terrorism problem and civil war problem, which should come first, which is the dominant. Factor who should do what? And this is a bit of a mess to my mind. The UN itself has been too hesitant and too reluctant to acknowledge that terrorism is simply an essential part of the wars. They're grappling with and to adapt their tools and instruments to that effect. I think the United States is also being too reluctant to notice that resolving the civil wars themselves as an essential part of the strategy for dealing with the terrorism problem, terrorists thrive and environments of instability and uncertainty likes of wars. Is there a structural issue that maybe try that bifurcation of the tube issues and thinking in terms of the actual agencies in the US government State Department defense department were agencies in the UN where you've got people who are experts in civil war on one side and people over here who experts in counter-terrorism, and they just haven't here to four had to really talk to each other to speculating here. That's a little bit of it. It's certainly phenomenon that the debates at the UN efforts to try to. Push the UN in the more constructive direction on terrorism. These kinds of things are heavily driven by State Department with some backstopping from the department of defense. Whereas the counterterrorism operations that were engaged in round the world really driven by special operators and DOD directly in the combatant commands..

"I don't wanna call it expansionist, but they're kind of near abroad focus, serious Harley, Russia's near abroad. We have to treat that differently region to region. In Ukraine, Putin is doing a number of things. He's implementing vision that he has of trying to expand Russian influence to his near abroad. He's trying to undermine the west. He's trying to undermine our efforts which were substantial to expand the zone of the European institutions of you excetera right up to his border. He's pushing back against that as well as wrongfooting us and wrongfooting the. Europeans causing havoc serious, very different. I think in the Middle East writ large, what Putin saw was an opportunity in the chaos that came in Syria. We were holding back from intervening debatable, whether those good or bad thing we can debate. But we were holding back from intervening and he's on opportunity. I saw an opportunity to shape the course of events to flex his muscles to demonstrate that he has been putting a huge amount of money fixation to the development of new weapons systems and training. His armed forces and ride aways showcase that. And he's been very successful in using that as a platform essentially to showcase Russian power. Now, an extraordinary quantity of his actually deployable military power is in Syria at some level of unreality for him, but we have not chosen to make that particularly cute honorably so far. And he has built his credibility with Sunni world. And in weapons sales and shown himself to be a player in geopolitics. I think that's his core objective answer. Let me switch to China. Now the another great global power. Where do you see the challenges to international peace and security in the US China relationship? This is very different because when you look at places like Africa, maybe some parts of the Middle East that's becoming more complicated. You see insecurity terms that Chinese interests are not particularly misaligned with ours. China has kind of overweening interest in stability of places of produce resources that requires huge flows of natural resources, oil, gas, minerals, all sorts of things. And it has chosen to invest in a lot of places beyond its borders where those resources can be found begun to contribute to peacekeeping forces and things like that as part of its effort to maintain stability that's globally in Asia. It's very different. Internationa. China is flexing its political muscles. It's Ican. Comic muscles, and it's sort of laying the groundwork for potentially flexing its military muscles in the region..

"I think that's distorting what is the case? Is that the wars in Syria Yemen enough Gana STAN are killing off a lot of people in particular in Syria, and the number of battle deaths and the number civilian deaths in those wars, very high. They're not higher than Moore's and you know the early nineties genocide in Rwanda, battled lesson Angola, etcetera. But they are very high and after roughly twenty year period of continuous decline, it is a striking reversal. Is there anything that ties together that increase in battle deaths in those three countries in the region? You mentioned Middle, East, Syria, Yemen, Afghantistan. Why's it happening in those areas of the world? Well, two reasons. First of all, gonna Donohoe say, has its own particular trajectory has actually been in war for more or less three decades for full decade. Before we intervene militarily it was struggling with ranger forms of violence and Prussian terrorism Syria Yemen. Libya some of the other cases. These are all manifestations of the arbs spring, the backlash to the spring breakdown of regional order breakdown of social order within the region. I think what's particular about that region is that unlike say, conflicts in sub Saharan Africa or Latin America or the fringes of East Asia, it's much more difficult in the Middle East for international actors to come together to help to try to resolve those conflicts because the region simply plays a much weightier role in geopolitical fares than does say, sub Saharan Africa or kind of Latin America oil, entrust security interests, critic, interests, alliance, interests, all mean that the United States Russians on others have very significant interests in these states, and so they don't view the conflicts through the prism of how can we stop the violence against civilians. They view the conflict through the prism of their strategic interests. And so rather than working together through the council or through regional organization to try to resolve these wars, rather we and others have been trying to make sure our side wins or make sure that we see an outcome that's aligned with our interests. And that's fueling these horse second point to make because these are states with large capable armies and large capable states. They've been deteriorated through the course of violence. But for example, in thinking about potentially responding to the Syrian civil war, you had to contend with the fact that Assad had a five hundred thousand strong army. That's a serious fighting force, whatever their degree of capability. So you can't just roll off with a few UN peacekeepers and take care problem like that. They're much much tougher problems. And now we have seen Russian military involvement in Syria, which leads me to segue to Russia and its involvement in Ukraine and Crimea. We could track back to Georgia either another places in central Asia. He talked about how those kinds of conflicts or changing global security. Better? Yeah, we're seeing a return to a phenomenon that we were very familiar with during the Cold War, namely proxy wars involving the great powers almost also will worse a proxy wars in one form or another. I e local combatants. The government itself have some support from neighbors or external parties, but it's a very different thing when that external party is a major military power. And so when other we or the Russians or somebody of that scale decides to lend support financial military advice, weapons or direct deployments to one side of the conflict or another, it becomes a much much more difficult proposition to resolve and what we know from the Cold War is a proxy wars can last literally for decades in a civil war. There are some finite level of resources or some finite level of pain. The society can suffer in the kind of pressure mounts resolve the situation. But when you're fueling those wars through the flow of weapons and money. And sometimes people then they can extend essentially indefinitely, and I worry greatly that we're moving back into a phase of that kind of proxy warfare, huge human costs and it costs to the relations between the powers. And do you think that spurred by letting reporting in Russia's newfound aggression, or do you think they're responding to external factors that make them want to be kind of returned to their?.

"Brookings podcast network on Twitter at policy podcast to get the latest information about all of our shows and now with the interview. Bruce, welcome back to the Brookings cafeteria. Thanks for having me again. I I say. say, welcome back. You last appeared on the show in may of twenty seventeen talking about your book about the Marshall plan in the US role in setting that up. So I encourage listener should go find that listen to very interesting book and interview. But we're here today to talk about your new paper. Co-authors scholars, including Charles call, Dan two bullets and Jason Fritz. It's on new challenges to international peace and security. In the opening sentence of the executive summary, you write the world in twenty eighteen faces international security environment immeasurably worse than that of a mere five years earlier. How is it worse there? Two main factors. First of all, after roughly twenty years of steady declines in the level of war in the world and every continent and every region we saw a substantial and major reversal in that trend from about two thousand twelve onwards. An increase in both the number and the intensity of wars in the world. Most of that is concentrated in the Middle East. The second thing we've witnessed is the beginnings of a sustained erosion of relations between the major military powers, United States, China on Russian particular. Those are not yet at an acute phase or anything like that, but there is a steady deterioration particular newes, Russia relations. And increasingly now in US, China relations, those two things intersect because to respond to wars in the post Cold War period. Primarily the United States has either being the driver of action or it's gone to the UN Security Council and push the UN to act to respond to war. But that's been much harder to do in the last years because tensions between the United States, Russia and China have blocked the UN Security Council from acting and some of the critical cases. So wars are getting worse and great power relations are impeding us from trying to treat that problem. There's a lot of data and your paper. I think it's a fascinating approach to put numbers behind these observations behind these research findings. And one of them strikes me as very interesting that major wars. I think it's over ten thousand deaths of year are the ones that are increasing and it's kind of overwhelming. The decrease in less major Moore's. Can you explain kind of that dynamic. This goes to a movie a controversial point in the paper. There's been a lot of pieces in the last couple of years for mechanics, and and policy makers talking about the fact that we're now at a global PICO, an all time, peak and levels of conflict, etc. We find that that's not really true. It's true only if you measure wars by a metric which is used now an academic circles that I find very unsatisfying, which is wars kill more than twenty five people year. That's a fundamentally different thing than when by twenty five people a year. That's the threshold that are us now versus some years ago, it was more conventional thousand battle Desi year as a threshold and in this paper and the economic literature us ten thousand ballots years threshold for major worse. When you look at major wars, there is a slight increase in the number of there's not a large increase in the number of them. And so that's a very different way of. Looking at things than to say, oh, or some sort of all time peak in the numbers of conflict in the world..
