Integrating ANY bot from ANY framework into ANY contact centre with Ilan Avner, AudioCodes
"Excited to get into this discussion. We've been talking we've had discussions over the last number of weeks around. I connect an audio 'cause and and the things that you're doing in the conversation is based on the things that you are able in for for companies and builders and the likes or definitely excited to kind of get into it and if you're just tuning in we're gonna be talking today about how to connect essentially any bought really from any framework or service into any contact and pretty much and so definitely excited to get into before we do join a give us a bit of a bit of a an update on. Tell us about yourself. And and what is it you do. And what is the audio quotes does okay so thanks for inviting me. Miami is one of narrow I'm a direct thorough management with the codes. I work with the courts or more than one years. Most of them In the in the last three years. I started the war. I moved to the product management team. Where i'm now leading that it is related to contact centers wealthy see unified communications funny and the ones right around door discussion through their connecting chatterbox Jena's i'm in israel Close relatives now for those of you. Who don't or not familiar with coats. So article design leading provider for voice. Solutions will we specialize in connecting voice. Networks we are pioneers in the voice over. Ip space with over twenty five years in operations were threatening nasdaq about one billion-dollar the market top of we have closed eight hundred employees presents name more than one hundred countries and the our customers are a mainly service providers thoughts elephants of his providers contact centers unified communication service providers. Very close relationship with microsoft with a we work with zone within nice in contact with genesis via and we also have a lot of large enterprises That are that are the customers so we have a. I can say that sixty six out of the of his viner's and fifty out of the one hundred forty nine. The prices are customers. Nice impressive and and i mean israel right now is seemingly like a hotbed for for voice technology and compensation you at over in israel. It will quiet by funny. Volker acquired by snap audio caused as a whole lot of interesting stuff going on you is and voice wise in israel. Not the minute that's right. We'll have another start on saying israel focusing on boise high focusing on communication. Yeah a lot of it is in israel in this space. Justin audio codes has everyone you speak to. In the context center will tend to know audio codes and so audio costs traditionally must have played quite large role in The kind of context and space as you mentioned what what is it. The it's kind of known foreign and what is it that it's doing now. As far as kind of conversation is concerned conversation ali. i think what doing lots of things conversation. Holly is one of them on. We are a. We're involved on the context standard business with many providers Mentioned before and we are men. Business was connecting. This context centers do Other delicacies are other voice. Networks in the Positionally i suspect what were you doing is the we were. We leveraged Abilities to connect to any contact center. Now let's say maybe explain a little bit about extenders. On so there are the ball vendors condemn fuel genesis via cisco nizing contact amazon. Some of them has the on premise. Deployments i think most of the be blunt or contact centers specifically for large enterprises. Our on premise must now. They're are trying to move everyone to the cloud. It's not happening so fast. There are multiple cloud providers amazon. Connect tweet nizing contact five nine. So there are multiple providers Extent and we are active on on on this weekend on connect. We we we. We have connectivity to all of this contact centers We can connect with these on. This is what we're doing for the last twenty years on activity and we leverage this in order to be able to connect the dots specifically about a chat bots that developed on any ball train work through these contact centers and while i say extent i mean egypt context thurs. I mentioned now one more thing about contact centers. Let's take for example genesis which is allowed contact center provider genesis specifically has multiple and deployment option so architectures or their voice or the on accents or they have on premise one two types of on premise on the centers and the have one on the cloud. And if you go to a specific customer and you would like to connect your boss to a nebo at connected for the telephony. Let's will be the voice about the and connected to the context under than the complex standard may use one of the architecture as i mentioned and usually i d i would not change. What have they can change. Maybe configuration that within they will not change it so if you want to be the voice box and connected to the context are you will be required to connect the weather. Customer has so this is in general a little bit about context centers in what we do in this market

"They'll print a bunch of models enough models so step one to ten will give you ten. Yeah yeah so what this. These companies like lab prompt. Oh us through blue sky. And i don't mind i have no financial interest again. A lot of my friends. Got me onto them. They they'll go and so they will give you the stl file back and the plant. Meaning they'll do the plant. Send you the stl file. All you have to import the stl file in which you do in your three printer. Is you print. Let's step one to ten. Then what you have to do is you have to do. A sucked out stint That's the way clear. Alive or therapy has always been done. Yeah and you're doing you're doing it. You're doing more of the labor part of it yourself in your office but the cost are not to be too specific but the cost of doing minus the labor. For let's say a staff member or yourself to actually cut the out the the suck downs stance to make the liner. Just simply nothing. More than suck down stint is one tenth. Maybe less than one ten you lost mine is little bit labor that your staff member would have to do so. My last week also did that. That's actually how we started in this. He was doing the south. You print everything and do the southbound so within two cases of doing that you have paid for ordinary prints right on pay for eight a large name. I don't want to give the name because they may shoot me. Also you're just. I mean honestly. I'm not sure i would back from serious. You're saying you're saying the things that they don't want you to say. And i said baby archie. Volker tells it like it is art volcker says the things..
Arcana Voting Semis
"Go. To get into. So we're. into. The semi-finals. For the Arcana vote. So, do any of these surprise you. So Specter beats more fling I think we both predicted that. Spin, beat Luna. Did we predict on? I predicted that Luna, I think we both predicted Luna Win win but I wanted spent to win. I was very pleasantly surprised. Of course, he's going to get crushed by Specter said as A. invoquer destroyed a P. L. no surprise. And this one was a surprise witchdoctor barely beat drought Rangers Syndrome. Yeah. which be John didn't expect either. So now out of our final eight, six cores to supports and the supports are lion witch doctor we're going up against void and invoke I think we're going to end up having only course left in the top four. That's right. So I think void will beat Lyon. NYPD will be handsome. Age Spectrum will beats van and invoquer will be which Dr Yeah and I don't think any of these votes will be close maybe sniper am a little bit the others but. Then again now that it's all kind of narrow down maybe all the support players. Will vote for their. They only have to to pick from. Yeah. That's the problem they should have had one That's how link group. That is true. Now you're splitting the vote, and if they both lose, you have nobody to vote for anymore. Then you need to get creative with who your support because it's your support picking Volker A. Sniper I. Like it. That's true for. Fair enough. Anyway, just remember guys when you're voting for your support, just don't vote for lion. That's the easy way to remember this gopher witchdoctor if you're going to pick one of the to. Maybe, they'll put the Capri Sun and gunman I mean there's zero percent, but you can just pretend
"volker" Discussed on The Dental Hacks Podcast
"I've been thinking about a lot of stuff. I need to stop thinking. It's all that free time you had is. I'm seriously so now. All of a sudden the dental students with coming out of school with all this debt that we're feeling like they under pressure to buy a practice or or like all the sudden that all the sudden having all that debt from dental school doesn't seem quite as bad as having all this debt from a practice. Yeah they can't really walk away from that debt but they're going to get some pretty good breaks I am. I understanding is like any federal subsidized loans. They're they're just not they're just suspending payments and interest for awhile and stuff like that and I worry about people. Dental practice owners that have a bunch of debt. I will say that it sounds like most banks are going to give people some some time for stuff to settle in. But I don't know there's a lot there's a lot of questions out there. I concerns in in frankly. A lot of people are not working that were last week. You know or a couple of weeks ago. So there's there's a lot of a lot of questions and all this stuff is relatively obvious like and no one needs to be embarrassed about asking these questions even even if someone chains you for for the sort of thing. These are all totally legitimate questions that need to need to be reasonably asked you know for for sure. I mean this is like we were talking about. This is unprecedented. So it's everything is going to be brand new to most and quite frankly you know you really should not be ashamed to ask if you don't know and it's funny because things change by the minute I left. Today Jacob. Javits center was a convention center. I come back today now. It's a hospital so if you've never seen the javits center the scale of what they're talking about is sort of mind blowing. I can't honestly. I can't imagine needing that much room it. Will they want thirty thousand more beds and they'll be thirty thousand more beds? I mean I'm sorry. Thirty thousand dollars ventilators. They need more than that embeds. So really yeah I mean remember. It's a big city people living in close proximity. You know where you are. United BE FAR lists concern. Yeah just because you don't have that proximity but although again I got a taste of today it was. It is a ghost town around where I am but I mean it's is these large areas it's this and by the way people are for the most part respecting the six foot now. They've given you that. Six Foot distance for social distancing. But it's you know people still hanging out in parks so. I mean that's a hard. That's a much harder thing to do too much hard thing to do. New York just having been in. New York's much harder. That's six foot rules. Not Quite so hard here. It's almost an entire apartment. Yeah exactly it's it was cool. It was cool like like when I was there and everything like that. That's the hustle and bustle. But I suspect people are more likely to follow directions there on this. Because it's a little scarier I think around here man. People people don't think it's all that big of a deal yet. That's I'm telling you that right now. There's a lot of like I have. I have patients calling while we're doing emergencies like what weren't weren't you? Rescheduling us and stuff like that. Do you watch the news? The governor just shut the state down like I'm sorry can't smooth temporary. Okay you know I mean is it overkill. Maybe maybe for areas with less population density. But come on. It's like that you know what that is. I liken it to not re medicating before procedure. Sure the odds are likely that nothing will happen to you. But YOU WANNA take that risk and and certainly wouldn't so. I understand the desire to be proactive. And I think it's a very good idea. It's a smart move. Yeah but but I mean like I do worry I do worry about it. We can only decide if it's overkill. After the fact I heard someone heard someone on a podcast. Say If you haven't bat outbreak than you then then you were underprepared. But if you don't have a bad outbreak than it was overkill there's really no middle. No one's going to say. Oh you did everything just right right. Yeah that never happens and trust me. I'd rather be over prepared over pair and expect the worst I mean. That's yeah I'm a little worried about. I mean I'm saying okay. Let's say we come out of this and still open by the way are they only so. You're okay I'd be fine with takeout. I tend to think month month and a half two months. I don't know exactly when the question is. How much money are people going to have to spend industry? That's the question I think that I think that that changes a lot of things you know like like a lot of these a lot of big case stuff maybe going to be put off because they just don't have the an who knows what financing will be. It's going to be an interesting time to be sure but you heard it. I already says it's a ghost town in New York City. It's still getting there and central Michigan. But we are. We are on state lockdown. I can't believe I'm I'm shocked. I thought New York was but that's all right. You probably will be right. You know what's funny is they. Don't call it as such but they really told you if you don't Work in other words they have the essential businesses not work from essential business. You must stay at home the same. That's the same thing the done Michigan they give up. The list of people who are essential is quite long a I was born. I didn't read the whole list. I read the first couple and I stopped reading because I I was wondering if I was on that list for if we were on it maybe I can just take the week off but now and I am in by the way the office. The only thing I did WANNA to say Allen just real quick was was something that's really interesting. I mean. We're taking all our precautions. But what's interesting about not hysteria but just about misinformation and about people almost forgetting how they're treated patients. I had a six year old kid. Come in with an abscess okay. Tooth number s either extractor done bottom by his a pediatric dentist. The mother is a patient of ours. She came over and she said you know my son is swollen. He was the most AC- Piatra dentist and the pediatric dentist closed. The office never called them here. The thing this is the one thing about an safety being issue but you have a six year old child who has a toothache or some type of APPs or some dental emergency. They have no treatment available for them right. Because everybody's closed so. They go to urgency role potentially exposing them to the current of. You know it's it's what's our role in it so I mean I know it's it's definitely fraught with with the Bait and peril but it had thinking you know. This kid came in very early last week and I was like when when they told us to. I do the essentials and I was like you know this could go to the hospital leaking very well put himself at risk would be put at yeah foregoing they were maybe maybe worse is his grandparents that see him later would be put at risk. That's kind of what a lot of people are thinking it's interesting what's our role in this and I completely believe and I mean it sucks about the shutdowns but we do have to comply at the same time. Do we have responsibility to see our patients to kind of in a way? Prevent them from having to go somewhere provide. You're you're not infected yourself but to go somewhere and potentially expose themselves you know where. Where's the best place to catch corona virus right now likely a hospital? I mean for sure because that's where everyone is my my thought processes to I'm I'm triaging emergency cases more or less by. Is this going to put this person in the emergency room? We don't treat this now are in the next couple of weeks or are they gonna be at a point where they need to go to the Er for infection or pain or something and the reality is like. That's not a whole lot of people and you can do a lot of triage the phone with that. It's not anywhere close to ideal but it is. It is what it is and I. I think we're going to do okay with it too. I think we just have to kind of just have to buckle down a podcast and and the dental Hackney's try and support people and let them know what's right and wrong. There's a lot of information out there and don't believe everything you know. We're going to try and bring the best information we can and we filter through a lot of it a guy yeah. I remember how many we have to approve posts commit. If people don't know when when post come into the dental hacks nation facebook page they have to be vetted a bit. And then if there's any post it's not about corona virus these past he's one of the moderators poor bastard. He's one of the moderators as well in. I think Jason and I have probably slapped a little bit because we have good moderate. Like and I gotTa Tell. You you put a post up there. The moderators are human beings. It really depends on my mood as to where like if I'm really pissy about this. Whole Corona virus thing. You're probably getting deleted before it ever gets the DELHEX nation. Guess what no regrets man. I if you think it's important we didn't put it up there. Just try again. Maybe you'll catch me to better mood. That's that's Kinda. Oh it's all about emotion people already thanks for being on in dental hacks nation if you have questions comments show up in the dental hacks nation remelted INFO dental hacks dot com and we'll get to it. There's a lot more with this. Came From and stay out there and be well. We'll talk again soon..
The most interesting new Android 11 features so far
"Entered eleven. They released the developer preview earlier than ever. You can't just go install like a Beta you gotta flash it and it's mostly developer facing stuff But the stuff that is facing a real humans is a chat heads. Bubbles are making a grand comeback There's this like conversation section which I actually initially got wrong announcement post where they basically taking a whole bunch of all your chats. And they're putting him in a separate area notifications they might actually finally do real screen recording natively thank. God and they also are going to have better sort of APP security permissions and the big one is scoped storage. Which means that just like on the iphone Android APPS aren't going to be able to just look at whatever they want on your story to They'll only be a look at their special section unless it gets special permission to look at like generalized storage. So in the same way that like I dunno on the iphone at like I need permission to look at this and the more ended up soft to do that in the same way that macos. Catalina is constantly asking you look at the desktop. That's coming for android there. You Go Anyway a bunch of developers are going to have to contend with that and Google's finally just stopping saying please update your APPs to support the stuff. They're just making them do it. Because security I guess because some of the the scope storage stuff was already an android ten right. It was entertainment. It was Andrew. Ten is like hey we gotta do this and a whole bunch android volkers went. Oh like okay. Okay. We'll we'll do it next year but like please please look at this and now they're like. Yo we're doing this. Why are they doing this through the play store? You can't issue update if you don't support this thing because they can't so it's it's this gets into like the wildly complicated territory of the difference between Version of Android a the API version of android and which API version your APP targets in addition to all of that there's a new complication in android. Eleven where you can target the newest and latest. Api IF YOU WANNA use the newest stuff you need to target that level of API like you WANNA use the cool new thing. Api twenty-seven you have to follow API twenty-seven rules right but sometimes like there's like features in it that are knowing whatever and so now they're letting you like dynamically opt in stuff in weird ways. You can opt inner opt out of certain parts of the API. It's just It's radically complicated is but I'm getting at well. I'm just saying apple puts out a new version of Iowa's everyone has to hop to do what apple apple because they'll just put it across the entire install base very quickly or if you want to target the newest and greatest phone which is where probably the spending customers are. They'll have it whatever you got to follow the rules. Dandruff has Greg Google. Broadly has android. It's while they complicated. Api situation has placed or approval process. Which another Leverett can pull. Yep Right and then it has placed services on the phone which is yet a third and it also has Ads If you want to use ads on your APP the Google on one of the bigger ad networks and they have different rules there as well including it especially for apps that are like for kids they now have the Google play subscription thing which is another layer of approval But the biggest complication of all. That's more important than any of this is. The vast majority of android phones are a couple of years old. You know they don't have the latest and greatest operating system and so there's literally no incentive for developers to like update to do things like get rid of the side drawer that interferes with the back button and the Pixel 'cause you know half a percent of users have this stuff and so it doesn't bother ninety nine point five percent of your users like where's the incentive to like put the effort into updated. I'm not calling developers lazy. I'm saying that they're following the incentives at the ecosystem offers them. You know. They're putting their time into other things that bring them more return. Sure Google has to do things like change. The incentive structure and one of those changes is like making scope storage or requirements Which is like well. Okay now if I if I don't do it my APP BREAK. And that's they're doing that in part because it's like a it's a privacy and security issue. Yeah but where is it a requirement like we're in that stack of things where they can issue requirements is it a requirement that is it's the API level if you WANNA target and you want to be and if you want your APP to work I believe on android eleven okay and I think that the game there is still the newest phones will run end? Eleven if you want to run in the newest phones you got to work with right right. Yep and then if you but you can you can target the API and have it still working like older versions of the US in some cases so wildly complicated. Yes What else standard eleven I mean that's the big stuff big consumer facing stuff. There's a you know you could go and look at like android police and nine to five Google. And they had just a blast of a day just finding all the features weren't technically announced earlier. A bunch of the features that weren't technically announced so so my favorites are Scrolling screen shots finally coming back Airplane Mode Turning Off Bluetooth. Which is not you know it's been that's been fine on IOS for awhile but they're doing it here How do you? How do you ship phone's headphone Jackson? Not have this man. They are going to let you maybe pin APPs to the share sheet Which is interesting. Because share. Sheet has always been a disaster on android. It's just always been bad. They tried to do a bunch of stuff like machine learning on it. It slowed it down and tried to roll that back. And so there's like screw it you can just like put the APP to you. Want there on your own machine learning. Yeah guess what you want but it turns out you already know and then they are updating the Bluetooth Stack for controlling Baluchis devices to A new thing that has the codename gobble door chef. Just tell to tell the story DARSHA GOBERNADOR. Show is the son of Swain his name is Swain forked beard and You know that's the son of King Herald which is The Bluetooth Bluetooth comes from. So it's like the successor to tooth forked beard. Yeah I don't get where gobble gobble doors is. The is the word forked beard. His Dad King. Harald got the nickname. Bluetooth right yeah king. Four to beard got the nickname. Gabolde door shut and he did not become a text entered so so those blue blouses. Give me way better now. Yeah sounds like they're doing a lot to do it. A Lot And this is not the main consumer facing stuff because they always wait for Google. I O for that but this is like the stuff that we've been able to Glean Yeah android police in ninety five Google developers. It seems like a lot of stuff is hold over from ten. They just push back. There's a bunch of holdover from ten so like we screen reporting recording was an early ten Betas and then it didn't arrive These bubbles same sort of thing there but not used them and the stoke scope storage and the other from ten is intended introduced permission changes for location where you could instead of having it be all or nothing you can do while using the APP. Now they're continuing to chase what the iphone does and you can grant like a one permission for location Just once and they're also extending that to I. Think like cameras and microphones and then on top of all of that. If an APP just keeps asking you every time you open it for location permission and you keep saying no eventually android will like figure that out and they will block the APP from asking
Valter Longo, PhD - Nutrition, Fasting Mimicking Diets, Regeneration and Longevity
"Dr Vaulter Longo originally planned to be a rock musician. But luckily for us he became an international rockstar doctor. In the field of longevity evident nutrition Volker is a professor and director of Gerontology Biological Sciences at the longevity institute at the University of Southern California and he's also the director of longevity and cancer programs at the Institute of Molecular Oncology in Milan. Italy a little over a year ago Time magazine. Gene named DR Congo one of the fifty most influential people in healthcare for his work on forty two international clinical studies and groundbreaking research on the fasting mimicking diets. Away to read your body of well. A mutated cells while rejuvenating are healthy ones. He's the creator creator of the five day fasting mimicking Diet and the author of the international bestselling book the longevity. I I was nineteen. I think when I started working on aging and At the time it was a music student in Texas University of North Texas. FAMOUS JESSICA CESCO. Obviously it was in my head all along because I did not think about what I had to do. I say I have to study aging and I always thought what an incredible challenge bald scientifically but also taught. Why is every doctor working? and He seems to me and like that's where the problem is So yeah so I. I have to say beside the years very early years. I I've always worked on this that's that's all I've ever then. Because I had read about you that you had initially wanted to be a rockstar. I started the same way my my initial thought was to be a Rockstar Rockstar. And then I realized that I was lacking one key ingredient and that was talent So I quickly switched to something that I felt I could do better and you still involved in music. It's a little bit more now I think in the You know fundraising levels over thinking of doing some some cancer onset or something like that to raise money for research. Yeah so I always Worth an aging. Since the early nineties was like enough to be a student of Roy while for Ucla was a pathologist there and it was my first mentor new at the time. The the world Most well known person working on calorie restriction and the longevity and saw I followed up on his on his he's working and So for the best Twenty seven years. We've been focusing on other. Take this old idea of station fiction and make it make it a newer idea that can be brought to the clinics all over the world so so Dr Longo. You've been looking into various diseases that are related to aging That I guess are anti longevity Diseases such as cancer and and auto immunity and cardiovascular disease obesity and how these diseases might be affected and possibly even untreated with a modification of Diet and With intermittent fasting. Yes so what we really focusing. Because he now is What I call the longevity program and and and saw a mouse Has It on. DVD program that is it's about two and a half years long Into I ran. The lifespan is two two and a half years but this the health span is maybe one and a half years of mice started developing cancer maybe after one and a half years out of the two and a half years lifespan so then the idea. Da is why is it that people don't get cancer in most cases until they're forty or fifty or older So there is clearly Did the possibility of getting cancer is under the control of this program. So what we're really talking about here are cells that have kind of an aging problem. Yeah that's what we're going after we're going to have to the fundamental changes in cells And in the collection of south that eventually will lead to dysfunction. What does the Diet that you are proposing that has been shown to have these immune modulating effects and the longevity? Well let me just interrupt for a second here You know I think we're talking about two different kinds of diets there's one there's the Intermittent Diet that you would do three times a year optimally on. But then there's your daily diet so can you comment on each of those we did Epidemiological study using the CDC database. A few years ago. Oh where we showed that Americans eight the highest level since they had About seventy five percents increase risk of overall mortality about three to four fold increased risk for developing cancer Compared to those that had the lowest protein intake so this is about you know out you eat every day and Now this was true only up to sixty five so if you When when the CDC asked the question two eight year-olds There was no longer true. In fact people eight year old were reporting. Having a law protein intake did not do very well So Oh you know this is really important that To understand that this is not we liked to have simple answers like low protein high-protein. This is good this this is bad. It doesn't work like that. It's a complex environment. You just have to learn how to navigate it and and it's not you know once you learn and you have the right physician or or or or Dietitian helping you. I think is fairly straightforward but there are a lot of data that says that high fat diet has an increased risk of colon cancer and breast cancer Animal fats and high protein seems to be Bought associated with increased mortality increased risk for Cancer increased risk for cardiovascular disease the ideal everyday diet seems to be a fish plus plus Vegan Diet That is you. We know high nourishment and low protein Then the fast moving the festival making that is really something very different. And it's not even intermittent in nature. Can you describe the intricacies of the fasting mimicking diet. What does it entail? Yeah so the fast making diet is is a law sugar. A high fat good fats are low. Protein colorist diet and fats. By that you mean Omega three versus Omega Six. Then what are you referring to good fats. I refer to Type of fats. That are associated. Will Jerry the And health span extension so the the olive oil plant plant based of a certain kind that the is for example Avocado as an daas thus far not been associated with longevity extension but Not have and so as olive oil So those yeah that's what we're focusing on the ones that provide the fats the certain type of fats but also that are being consistently associated with higher health status in longevity

"It means if your bank totally up and goes bankrupt. Your money is okay. The federal government will guarantee up to two hundred and fifty thousand also banks with a government. Backstop like this. They probably shouldn't be gambling with the money. You've left in your like nice little checking and savings account out to just sit there. Think about it. You got money sitting in your checking account. Should your bank. Which knows your money's just sitting there? Should it be able to take by Netflix. Shares to try to make money now. It probably probably shouldn't be doing that. That would be kind of aggressive. And that's why. Paul Volcker advocated for a ban on proprietary trading. which is what that would be? That would be when banks issues customers money to make money themselves in like wild and so he helped congress passed the Volcker rule. Great name not surprising Kinda ended up with his name back in two thousand ten after the the financial. Exactly so jack what's the takeaway for our buddy. Paul Volcker one of Paul Volcker's lessons is irrelevant to us. As millennials the other is hugely Utah profound okay so the lack of the Volcker rule before the financial crisis kind of helped lead to the financial crisis and that led to the government having to bail out the big big banks and it also led to a giant recession. which made it tough to get jobs? That's why that Volcker rule that prevents banks from doing some fun side trading on their own with your checking and savings money is that that's so important and that's why it's so relevant to us that it has to be there but the other Volker lesson uninfication pretty much isn't relevant that anymore. We have had ten years. Here's where inflation has been pretty much nonexistent. It's been zero since the financial. Is this new economic situation. Where inflation just isn't there? So volkers like like main lesson has lost relatives because there isn't inflation right. Now that's why you're seeing one or two or three percent interest rates not nineteen percent like Paul audited in one thousand nine Hundred Eighty Nine Jack whip takeaways force over.

We mentioned yesterday exactly. That's another story for third and final story. We want to talk about Paul Volcker who just passed away yesterday. This is kind of of his snack. Style obituary into a highly profound economic and financial leader from a different era. We're bringing up his biggest lessons from history that dominated into the twenty s are man. Paul Volcker was born in one thousand nine hundred twenty seven great year same years my grandfather in Cape May New Jersey grew up during the depression tough time and and he was eighteen in one thousand nine hundred five one World War Two ended. He worked his way up to become chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States are central Bandy. Had that position for eight years and his two biggest policy lessons were actually dramatically different from each other. We're talking about like the nineteen eighties people. So we're going to jump into both of them lesson number one from Paul Volcker inflation used to be real and flation can be dead okay. The late nineteen nineteen seventies is when Volker took over the Fed all right. There's a lot of sideburns John Travolta a lot of dance moves stuff like that Saturday night. Fever the BG's were huge but so was inflation was was flaming heart. It was the result of too much demand. Not Enough supply when you have too much demand and not enough supply for the entire economy. Your brain should be thinking imbalance on you get something called inflation and in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. The average price of everything and the American economy increased by thirteen percent. Here's an aggressive and completely embellished analogy. You'll walk into the store to buy a thirteen percent banana and find out. It's twenty dollars. There was some artistic liberties liberty rounded up aggressive as Federal Reserve chairman. Volcker had to do something to stop inflation and he jacked up interest rates to almost twenty percent to do that. That wasn't a little bit of math on the side to make things happen. That was putting a fire. Hose up to the fire that was inflation scaring people with like Twenty Dollar Bananas. Thanks to that decisive. As of move out it killed the inflation problem like restored faith in the economy..
Remembering Paul Volcker
"Here's the thing about Paul Volcker the former chairman of the Federal Reserve arguably one of the most influential of Fed shares. Who died it yesterday at the age of ninety two? Yeah it's kind of an amazing story that's author and New York Times editorial board member beaming Applebaum on this show about a month or two ago. He used to cover the Fed for the Times. When Paul Volcker I started at the Federal Reserve he worked basically as a human calculator in an office deep inside the Federal Reserve? There Have Bank of New York in the early nineteen fifties and he told his wife one night that he didn't think he had a future at the Fed that as an economist he was always going to be consigned to being essentially. Actually you know A worker bee at this institution that was run by financial market types businessmen. Those even a Iowa Hog farmer there and he didn't think that he had much chance of getting ahead. Suffice it to say Paul Volcker got way ahead at the Federal Reserve. Jimmy Carter picked him to run the Central Bank in nineteen seventy nine with inflation and this is important headed toward almost fifteen percent. I ask Carter about that about the economic and political fallout from picking Volker when I interviewed the former president in two thousand ten so I went looking as I Picked up this book. I went looking for the name. Paul Volcker who You pointed to the Fed in nineteen seventy nine. You don't come across crosses name until page three hundred and forty something and it's really funny because it is dismissed in a sentence. Paul Volcker came in We decided we could work with him. And then the the next day bang you name to defend that was really the one of the most hotly debated things. I did because a lot of my political advisor. Said don't appoint Paul Volcker because he's going to tighten up on everything and you will have no control at all over the Fed anymore. You won't even have communication with him when Paul Volcker came. I was seeing the prospect of enormous inflation rates. And so I agreed with Paul Volcker in conversation that I would not interfere in what he did. I was prepared for him. To tighten up tremendously and drive interest rates and so forth up in order to control rampant in. It's funny actually because a little bit later in the book you basically say in this passage that you dictated at the time Volcker says he's going to have to tighten interest rates. And it's GonNa hurt me politically. I mean. You knew it was coming. I knew it was coming but I was prepared to take it. I thought that I could be reelected in spite of that as it turns out. Of course things didn't work out for President Carter about which I asked Paul Volcker in two thousand twelve if I read the see the recounting of that job interview correctly in this book. You basically said I want independence and I gotta do what I gotTa do. It was obvious why he wanted to see me. But I MR president and if you're thinking of appointing me Germany Federal Reserve. You have to know that I believe in somewhat entitled Monetary Policy and we have been following and my predecessor followed. Yeah you know I the next question I asked the president actually was Did you mind when he raised interest. He's like that and he said Oh no I I thought it was going to be good for the next presidential term. I thought that term was going to be mine. Not Raking No. He asked him why said I cost him the election. There's some people said and he had kind of Ri- smiled and he said well I think there were a few other factors as well after he left the Fed in nineteen eighty seven. Paul Volcker worked on on Wall Street for a while. Got Drafted back into government service every now and then most. Recently as the chairman of President Obama's economic recovery advisory board and as the namesake for the Volcker Carulli. The part of the Dodd Frank Financial Reform Bill that limited some of the kinds of trades. The Big Wall Street banks could make. But really when you think Paul Volcker. It's those years in the late nineteen seventies early nineteen eighties when the Fed pushed short-term interest rates up to a record twenty percent to get inflation back under control twenty percent went today the Fed's current short-term target rate is between one and a half percent and one and three quarters percent and it hasn't over five in more than a decade which makes double digit interest rates hard for most Americans below a certain age to even fathom so marketplace's Amy Scott takes us back in the early nineteen eighties and Owen managed a bank branch Boston to remember telling customers. They'd have to pay twenty one percent interest for a car loan today. The average is just over for four percent. They would get mad at the bank and many times they would just basically say I can't afford that. Oh and went on to become an economist at the Fed and now teaches at Hamilton College. She says those high interest rates had a purpose volcker was trying to slow down demand by making borrowing more expensive give. It made it difficult for people to buy houses by cars Credit card interest rates. Were extremely high. The economy did slowdown slowdown falling into two recessions. In one thousand nine hundred eighty two unemployment topped ten percent in protest homebuilders mailed. Chunks of two by fours is to Volker and members of Congress. Fred Napolitano is former president of the National Association of homebuilders. Just make a point to say this is what we do is is what we build you know with. The interest rate is hurting us. That pain eventually paid off. Robert King is a professor of economics at Boston University. Ultimately once people began to believe that inflation was gonNA come down it came down and interest rates tumbled and the economy recovered and and it's viewed as a major triumph at triumph. Nobody wants to have to repeat. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace. Paul Volcker did yesterday at at the age of ninety

Impeachment hearings: Tuesday was a disaster for Republicans
"Impeachment proceedings against President trump were a doubleheader today with hearings both this morning starting at nine. Am Eastern and men another marathon hearing this afternoon starting at three o'clock eastern extending well into the evening tonight ending less than a half an hour ago. Now the the second hearing today the afternoon and evening session that just ended was tactically a first though because the two witnesses were called specifically in the impeachment hearing this afternoon were the first witnesses who were specifically requested by the Republicans on the committee. Now we don't know exactly why hi. The Republicans on the committee were so eager to call these particular witnesses today. It kind of seems clear from how it went with them today that the Democrats would have been just as is happy to call them to if the Republicans hadn't but this is specifically who the Republicans wanted and it seems like it's probably Lee not the way they had wanted it to go does not credible to me. That former vice president biden would have been influenced in any way by financial or personal motives in carrying out his duties as vice president. I don't think that raising twenty sixteen elections or vice president and Biden or these these things I consider to be conspiracy theories that have been circulated by the Ukrainians particularly the former prosecutor. General are are we there not things that we should be pursuing as part of our national security strategy with Ukraine at the one in person meeting I had with Mayor Giuliani on July. Nineteenth mayor. Giuliani raised and I rejected the conspiracy. Theory that Vice President Biden would have been influenced in his duties as vice president by money. Money paid to his son as previously testified. I have known vice. President Biden for twenty. Four years is an honorable man and I hold them in the highest regard embassador Kurt Volker who resigned as U S envoy to Ukraine when the impeachment scandal broke. Open a few weeks ago. He was asked to testify testify before these proceedings. He accepted that invitation to testify and he resigned his job What that means though? Because he was the first witness they asked to come in and give a closed-door deposition that tells you that the Democratic leadership of the impeachment committees were happy to hear from Ambassador Volker as a witness in the first instance. I'm I can surmise. That the Democratic leadership of those committees would have been happy calling him again for this public testimony of the type that he went through today that said he was specifically requested Republican witness the Republicans on the committee specifically wanted Ambassador Volker and to Morrison who he testified alongside alongside today. I'm not exactly sure why. The Republican members of the committee were so psyched to have him there today specifically as their witness but there he was it was ambassador Volker and as I mentioned a senior national security official who also recently resigned his post. The man he testified alongside is named Tim Morrison Morrison Morrison on Volcker are the witnesses the Republicans wanted to make sure got their turn before the cameras in these televised hearings but whatever the Republicans motivation was for that honestly. Their testimony wasn't awesome for the President's defense. Not at all quite the contrary now after this larger meeting with the vice president pence presidents Alinsky testified at your deposition that you saw ambassador John Lennon immediately. Go over and pull Andre Earmark aside and have a conversation as president Zone Linski left the room vice president pence left the room and in sort of an anteroom Bashur Samland and presidential adviser. Your had this discussion. Yes Bachelor Sunland Sadie. Tell you that he told Mr Yearbook that the Ukrainians would have to have the prosecutor. Ask You your general Make a statement with respect to the investigations as a condition of having the eight lifted. Now did you tell Ambassador Bolton about this conversation version as well. I reached out to him as well and requested his availability for a secure phone call and what was his response when you explain to him what ambassador Sunland had said. Tell the lawyers now. A few days later on September seventh you spoke again to Ambassador Sunland. Who told you that he had just gotten off the phone with President? Trump isn't that right. That sounds great. Yes what did ambassador Sunlen tell you that. President Trump said to him. If I were called this conversation correctly this was where On related that there was no quid pro quo by presence. Alinsky had to make the statement and that he had to wants wants to do it year by that point. Did you understand that. The statement related to the Biden in a two thousand sixteen investigations. I did yes. And that was a a essentially a condition for the security assistance to be released. I I understood that. That's what embassador sauna believed after speaking with President Trump. That's what he represented. Did you tell Ambassador Bolton about this conversation as well I did. Yes and what did he say to you. He said to tell the lawyers once again what I call them the second time for something like this once again. He told me tell the lawyers do. Do we need a theme song for today. How about tell the lawyers fire up the embroidery hoops day? Three three of the trump impeachment hearings had provided us with yet another set of words to live by words to stitch onto a pillow. At least words words to watch out for in testimony about how the president's own appointees talk to each other when they learned about what the president had been cooking up behind closed doors to don't even tell me talk to the lawyers dude. Are you calling me about another one of these. I said talk to the lawyers. Do you have the lawyer so number. Can you get to the lawyer's office.
Volker at impeachment hearing: 'I did not know of any linkage'
"Former US envoy to Ukraine ambassador Kurt Volker told the house intelligence committee he was never part of any effort to pressure Ukraine into investigations to help president trump in exchange for military aid I did not know of any linkage to White House officials told a democratic led committee earlier in the day they were concerned when the president brought it up in his July twenty fifth call with Ukraine another former White House aide said he wasn't concerned anything illegal was discussed and top committee Republican Devin newness sees no evidence of wrongdoing it's obvious the Democrats are trying to topple the president so we because they despise there's more public hearings on Wednesday and Thursday this is the US state radio news
Major Takeaways From Tuesday's Impeachment Hearings
"Today was a big day for the public hearings on the impeachment. Investigation number of trump administration administration officials did testify. One of those officials. Was Kurt. Volker who is no longer a trump administration official but he was formally The special envoy in Ukraine now his testimony publicly apparently is different from what he said privately. So let me give you the details IOS according to Various sources The week writes in his original closed door testimony when asked if there was any talk of investigating the Biden's in July ten and meeting with Ukrainian defence leader Volker repeatedly answered no but when appearing publicly before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday Volker reverse that statement on Tuesday Volker acknowledged that Gordon Psalm land the US ambassador to the EU brought up the investigations and that he found it inappropriate in fact in the next clip. That you're about to watch. He discusses what he really feels about the demand for the Biden investigations nations. This references the conversation. I had with Mr Giuliani as well where I think. The the allegations against Vice President Biden ourselves serving bringing and not credible so the fact that he says that it self serving is important because one of the trump defenses that we commonly hear from Republicans is it. What's the big deal? Quid pro quo. We do it all the time right. I mean we do. We make these deals with foreign leaders. Yeah you make the deals with foreign leaders in in an effort to do what's in the best interest of America overall. Not what's in the best interest of the president or his political campaign which was the case with Donald Trump trump or the very least in the best interests of the American military industrial complex but not for individual politicians Yeah and it also undercuts. I I know that a lot of right wingers had been expecting that he might sort of come up hint that well you know there were concerns about Biden at the time. Like that's that's one of the main like one of the main three. I guess defenses if the trump was that obviously issues of Biden and his family and so you cannot say that it was weird to bring it up but he's pointing out that no the people in the meeting knew that there was no legitimate reason talking about investigation by that time and in previous testimony We learned that the investigation into the Biden's makes no sense because the accusation Asian by trump is that Biden wanted to get rid of a prosecutor in Ukraine who was investigating Burris MMA but now we have multiple support people who are part of trump's administration. Saying no that prosecutor who got fired first of all the international community wanted him to get fired because the investigation was a stagnant and that particular prosecutor was corrupt. And so you say that. And it's so simple so easy understand but even that very easy to under the understanding in like three months that this scandal has been in the public like attention. You can't accept that. No I still think no no by Biden project to them so I get your perspective and you're right you're definitely right but also at the same time like this is why the giant conflict of interest of having Hunter Hunter Hunter Biden. Serve on. That board is coming back to bite. Biden You know because you really shouldn't have been on that board. Let's keep it real honest about that. Might China have a big conversation where we finally take stock of the fact. That nepotism is a huge thing in American politics and American business in America entertainment and music and the media and all of that and we we strip all those people that positions that make them actually earn what they get. Ben Sure we get rid of Hunter Biden in you. Know Jared Kushner doesn't have his job and you get the trump's aren't running the trump organization Shen and Meghan McCain's off the view and everything. I think we can totally have that conversation. It's probably long overdue. But that is not what Donald Trump was trying to do. It is so disingenuous of the right to pretend that that trump actually cared about hunter by not insofar as hurts the credibility of Biden an election but because Hunter Biden being on that board means well. That's really hurting the energy sector of Ukraine. I won't stand for it. No Look I. One hundred percent agree with you and think about Donald Trump and the nepotism within his own administration. I mean two of his top advisors are family members who have absolutely no business serving in the White House or in any form of government for that matter. Yeah so One other quote from volkers testimony that I wanNA share with you. He said quote. I participated in on the July ten meeting between National Security Adviser Bolton and then Ukrainian chairman of the National Security and Defense Council. Alex Danube Daniel loop. Who has the best name I love? Because as a reminder The meeting was essentially over when ambassador. Gordon solid again. Gordon Sahlin keeps coming coming up Made a generic comment about investigations. I think all of us thought it was inappropriate. The conversation did not continue and the meeting concluded. Yeah so can I just talk briefly about So Volker his what he just said a little bit different in some substantive ways from what you said earlier silent was the earlier version of that he originally originally said no quid pro quo totally not. And he's like sorry I meant quid pro quo. It's easy to get this to mix up and you know why the reason why changes testimony is because his testimony conflicted did a great deal from the testimony given by other trump administration officials exactly in. So that's what's really interesting about. The Republicans didn't want the closed door hearings. They also coincidentally don't want the public ones but they didn't want the private ones but the thing that the private ones brought was they had multiple people come in talk about what they knew and then when stuff started to come out from it some of them started to realize like oh it's gonna be really hard to sustain what I told them or best case scenario some of them their memories jogged or whatever and so now they're story is changing especially when they have apparently come to the understanding that they work for a guy that would love to throw them under a bus and they. They don't want to be the person who goes down for this Gordon San's like this was just fun man. I just spent a million dollars. I thought it'd be cool to be ambassador for a few years. I don't WanNa go to jail for Donald Trump. And so if Gordon Gordon Sunland tells the truth or at the very least avoids going to jail for perjury or something like that. Then at the very least from his point of view it passes the buck to Rudy Giuliani. Who can go to jail right? And I think that it is honestly given what we've heard 'cause look we know that investigations into trump don't necessarily work out out the way that you would expect them to. Even if there's overwhelming evidence you know the obstruction of justice outlined in the report is just so clear but all the people surrounding funding Donald Trump who engaged in any type of criminal activity paid the consequences. So if I had to take a bet on. The fate of Rudy Giuliani Donald. Trump's personal lawyer. He's in a lot of trouble. And trump will throw him under a bus as soon as it's convenient for him to do so.

Democrats release transcript of Pentagon official's testimony
"Released testimony on a central allegation of the impeachment investigation that president trump withheld military the aid to pressure Ukraine to investigate. Joe Biden Pentagon official revealing what she knew about the decision to freeze the funding and efforts to get Mr Trump to change his mind. More evidence made public less than forty eight hours before historic televised impeachment hearings began. Let's immediately go to our congressional reporter. The Laura Fox Lawrence We now have the testimony of this Pentagon official. Laura Cooper what are we. Learning from the transcript has just been released while Wolf. Learning that Laura Cooper was the deputy assistant secretary of Defense and she really would have been personally involved in what was going on with this military but even she was very concerned. Puzzled told about why this money was being withheld nearly four hundred million dollars in US military assistance of course between the State Department and the Department of Defense and it's very clear here that even she was grappling with congressional investigators behind closed doors to explain how this accord it really underscores wind. Vigils like Mick Mulvaney people who actually had conversations nations with the president and would know what the motives were behind all of this. Why Democrats want to talk to people like moving? Because this was lower cooper's job she handled the defense ends departments portion of this military aid and even she was having a very hard time Wolff explained to congressional investigators what was going on. She basically just said she became came aware of it in July. But there was a lot of concern about whether or not this was even legal because Congress had already appropriated this money wolf. What did she Tell investigators about specific convert con con conversations that she had with embassador Volker for example while she was trying to get to the bottom of why the money was being withheld and she was told by Kurt. Volker that quote an effort was being made that he was engaged in to see if there was a statement that the government of Ukraine would make that. Would somehow how disavow any interference in the US elections and would commit to the prosecution of any individual involved in election interference. That was about a specific as it got again wolf. It's very clear that behind closed doors. She was having a hard time explaining to congressional investigators. Exactly what happened because even though this was her job this clearly was being kept very retitled around the president of the United States. And his acting. chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney. Glory Interesting Laura Cooper the Deputy Assistant Secretary of defense for Russia Ukraine and Eurasia Asia. Clearly overseeing a lot of this Thanks very much for that Lauren. Fox let's go to a political correspondent. Sara Murray Right now Sarah we have this new testimony the transcript ask him just released as Democrats and Republicans are clearly gearing up for public impeachment hearings on Wednesday. That's right wolf. And obviously we're getting these new details the wall of the broader planning playing out. And I think when you look at this new testimony we get from Laura Cooper really does give us a little bit more sense of what was happening behind the scenes in terms of concerns about this money and whether it was possible to get this aid for Ukraine out the door you know she talks in her testimony about the discussions that were going on in the Defense Department about whether it was evenly goal for and for the president to be holding this money back with it'd already been allocated by Congress you know. She even tells lawmakers at one point that she was there. Were concerns the Defense Defense Department that roughly one hundred million dollars in aid to Ukraine could be at risk so potentially that they wouldn't even be able to get out the door and time and of course we know from our other reporting this is what members of Congress were telling the president privately. They were saying you need to allocate this money. Now you need to get this money out the door otherwise it's not gonNA happen.
"volker" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Welcome back to the daily. DC impeachment. Watch David challenged. Gloria Borger is still with me and we're pleased to welcome. CNN White House reporter Meghan Vasquez. Thank you so much for joining us on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me so Meghan I want you to hear what Donald Trump ally now allied so odd to say that Rand Paul had to say say last night at a rally in Ram Pulse Home State of Kentucky on the eve of the gubernatorial election there today. He took up the president's cause of trying trying to reveal the whistle blower. We also now know the name of the whistle blower the whistle blower needs to come before poor congress as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time. One Hundred Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs. I say tonight to the media do your job and print and I say say this to my fellow colleagues in Congress to every Republican in Washington step up and Subpoena Hunter Biden and subpoena the whistle blower. So Meghan there you have it Rampaul taking up the cause here on behalf of Donald Trump standing there at the rally with him is is everything. You're learning from what this White House strategy is. Does it hinge on them exposing the whistle blowers name. Why is this issue number one for Donald Trump right now right so I think if there's anything we've learned about? Donald trump and his presidential reelection strategy is that he's not going into apologize he's one to double down And if you look at the way that this campaign has tried to approach the impeachment inquiry even though there have been Efforts among some administration officials to let's say Towards the beginning of this inquiry battle to release that transcript The campaign is taking an approach. the basically says come out and fight me and so I have to say it's quite striking to have. Have someone like rand. Paul who is often butting heads with Donald Trump on foreign policy backing him on this So much of this rally From what I could tell was about having not only donald trump get reelected right but also bolstering these Kentucky Kentucky candidate for governor Income for Governor Evan and so I wonder how many more times we're going to see this kind of theme Be replicated at these kinds of rallies especially like going back to when Ted Cruz held a rally in Texas with the president was anything I would argue. We're probably going to see a lot of Gloria I mean there's a brand new Mama. Th Poll poll out today. Donald Trump's approval rating is at forty three percent. It has been It is where it has been this entire time here. Is the President United States under the threat threat of impeachment. He is facing an immense amount of pressure that he hasn't faced yet post Miller and yet it doesn't move you've his approval. Rating is good standing the New York Times and just put out a polls these in the six battleground states that he won in two thousand sixteen where he looks very very much in the hunt to win them again. In twenty twenty if he doesn't see any political repercussion. Why should he ever apologize? Adviser take a different approach well and and that is exactly his strategy. which is I did it? So what so what this was. There's nothing wrong with this. As he keeps saying it was a perfect for call. Let me tell you again. I'll do it right right. I'll say fine. Yeah no quid. Pro Quo no collusion. which hunt you know whatever you want to say? And that's the Strategy Reggie. Because he knows he can get away with it and he does he. He does get away with it with his supporters. who like him for other reasons? And I'd like him precisely because he's taking on the establishment and precisely because he doesn't play by the rules and he's not looking to get those other voters and the big question. All of us here have is. Does he need those independents. Because that's where he's lost altitude with independent voters And he's lost some altitude with white undereducated voters well according to some polls that will you know will that loss really hurt him in the Electro Zero College not the popular vote. Let's not even talk about. Let's talk about the way we elect presidents and he knows how we elect presidents so he hasn't broadened his base because he feels like he doesn't have have to. We don't know whether that's right. Calculation and Meghan. He won independence by four points. In the two thousand sixteen election it was actually part of his is winning coalition they as glorious point. They fled him in his party in two thousand eighteen. It's what delivered the majority in many ways To the Democrats in the House of Representatives additives. Have you gotten any sense that they're trying to make some appeal to them in any way I want. I'm wanting to hear what the president said last night about this impeachment the process at this rally. And you tell me if you hear anything in here that may appeal the independence. There's been no place in the country that's gone down like the area that Nancy Pelosi represents and she's wasting all over time and you know what it's backfiring you said but the media and the Democrats have launched and even more brazen assault on our nation with the deranged hyper partisan impeachment with so the one thing I hear there is he. He wants to make this a partisan affair He thinks that helps him. is is the key is the calculation that that independence who tend to not really like partisan affairs somehow tune this out then. Well it's unclear to me exactly how the how the president is trying to appeal to independent voters here. I will say though that this election today on Tuesday is going to be a test of both. Were this rhetoric is working particularly because Governor Bevin is having such a tough fight In the gubernatorial election in Kentucky he was one by A Lance Hi for Donald trump points. Yeah in two thousand sixteen I like I said I'm not sure if it's going to work with independent voters were. We're going to see how it works in places like Kentucky Today Yeah. I am eager to see the returns tonight because I think part of this impeachment landscape. Gloria is in trump country in places like Mississippi Kentucky. Can he still go in at the end even under the threat of impeachment and drive his voters out. Well first of all He is likely likely to get impeached by the house. Vote the articles of impeachment but unlikely to get impeached by the Senate so he can claim victory. He can say I won. They tried to get rid of me. They didn't get rid of me now. You have to reelect me because they tried to do it the bad way now. You have to make sure that I come back. He can use this as a tool for himself. Which is why Nancy Pelosi? He was so unsure about whether you even ought to do impeachment at all until until this until this phone call and I think the Democrats have to do a good job of explaining why this is not just about a one phone call but it's about a way of doing business and and the way the government operates which they would claim is corrupt upped. That is going to be the test for the Democrats when these hearings go public in these next couple of weeks Gloria what are you looking. Forward to in the days ahead This week before we get to those open hearings. What what other testimony are you waiting for? Is there any next development in this story. You're most keen to. I think we want to see. See the testimony from Fiona Hill. She was part of the national security apparatus inside the White House. She is the person who worked for John. Bolton and who was a witness to John Bolton's explosion when he said of Gordon Sunland meeting with Ukrainians inside the basement baseman of the White House. I don't want to be a party to their drug deal or something to that effect so I do WanNa see her testimony I'm looking forward to also discovering whether in fact we will hear from Bolton ever even privately or publicly because he's the key to this story he's the big key to this story he could be John Dean or he could not be John Dean John. Dean testified voluntarily so always different that way but he does hold the keys to the kingdom here and he is somebody who left the White House on bad terms. He is somebody who is devoutly the Anti Putin and was very upset with Ukraine aid. Not going through and I am wondering whether that had anything to do with his leaving since if you look at when he left. I wondered the same temper- tenth then was released. What the next day throughout this whole thing? I have wondered very much about his departure date. We will wait and see. I will say back to your earlier point whether he plays the role of John Dean or not. It is still hard to see on. Today's facts who the twenty Republican senators would be sort of come over and remove the president from officer. John Dean was a turning point that led eventually to Nixon's resignation. I it's hard to imagine even John Bolton if that's the role he's playing that that's the never tastes and there were taking Gloria Meghan. Thank you so much for joining me on the daily.

"volker" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"Withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign and someone's has bill. I believe you're correct about President trump's intentions. The president has been crystal clear. No quid pro quos of any kind. The president is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is truly going to adopt the transparency and reforms presidents alinsky promised during his campaign. I suggest we stopped the back and forth by text. If you still have concerns turns I recommend you give Lisa Kenna or s call to discuss them directly. Thanks I don't know who asked is in this particular conversation. Okay so bill Taylor. Laura obviously thinks is a quid pro. Quo someone saying it's not a quid pro quo volker saying it is not a quid pro quo at least with regard to the the actual investigation into Biden so that is where things stand. Does this make us more suspicious today than we were yesterday about the transcript of the phone call the answer. There has to be as obviously because there were obviously negotiations taking place now were those predicated on Biden specifically or was about broader corruption effort unclear now in another piece of news. The Democrats are jumping on today. The Wall Street Journal reported the President Trump ordered the removal of the ambassadors Ukraine after months of complaints from allies outside the administration including Rudy Giuliani that choose undermining him abroad and obstructing efforts to persuade Kiev to investigate former vice president Joe Biden according to people familiar with the matter so there's there's always that anonymous sourcing the recall of the Avocado Vicent Spring has become a key the point of interest in the house impeachment inquiry a whistleblower complaint by officer alleges the President Solicited Foreign Interference in the twenty twenty elections complaint sites Yovich his ouster as one of a series of events that paved the way for what the whistleblower alleges was an abuse of power by the President State Department officials were told the Spring Yovich is removal was a priority priority for the president a person familiar matter said secretary of State Pompeo supported the move avenue which was told by the State Department they couldn't shelter from attacks by the president and his allies according to people close to her in an interview Rudy Giuliani told The Wall Street Journal in the lead up to the Avenue which is removal reminded the President of complaints percolating among trump's supporters. Where's that she displayed an anti-trump bias in private conversations in Mr Giuliani's. You should also been an obstacle to efforts to push crane to investigate Biden and his son hunter so again. This is why if re testifies a real problem for trump because it sounds like in this interview that Giuliani is telling the Wall Street Journal that trump fired an ambassador basser because she was not attempting to push forward the Biden investigation in Ukraine which looks real ugly so you know all all of this doesn't look fantastic for sure however the Wall Street Journal also reports that when Yovanovic left her post in May the State Department said she concluding her assignment as planned. She was recalled three months before the end of her customary three your diplomatic tenure. Giuliani told the journal that we mentioned the ambassador to the president this spring from thought that had already been dismissed. Guiliani subsequently received a call from a White House official asking him to list his concerns about the ambassador again he then gave Pompilio the secretary of state a nine page document dated March twenty eighth that included a detailed timeline of the Biden's dealings in Ukraine and allegations of impropriety against Yovich including putting the choose very close to Mr Bean okay well. That's a different thing right in other words if Giuliani is saying they avenue which is basically a Democrat appointee and that she is very close to trump's political liberal opponents in that that's a problem trump does have plenary power over the executive branch that doesn't mean that they are firing her for holding up an investigation into Biden. If if you believe that somebody is stacked against any of your interest because you are a Republican in that person's the Democrat this is why for example pretty customary to fire all of the US attorney's when you and enter office as President of the United States so the the question in this story is again whether this was about the Biden investigation and Ukraine oven ovatch which not participating in it or whether about she was a Democrat from Republican in like okay now all of this is exacerbated yesterday because President Trump and decides to go out publicly on the south one of the White House and call on China to investigate the Biden's which of course adds to the MIASMA and fog of complaints the president trump keeps going out there and asking foreign foreign countries to investigate Biden. They were honest about it that sort of major investigation into the by very simple answering they should investigate devices because how does the company but still formed and all these companies did you look at it and by the way likewise. China should start started investigation into the Bible because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with with Ukraine right okay so people are jumping on this and they're saying while now now trump is just throwing out there quid pro quos for foreign interference gate. Not This is trump riffing okay. This is John Belushi in animal house. He's is just say in stuff because that's what he does. He does now the Democrats and the media they are trying to claim that trump has already raised by in calls with Gijon Ping but the fact is that he was just again riffing and a conversation was Xi Jinping returning a phone call with G. on June eighteenth from praised Biden's political prospects specs as well as those of Elizabeth Warren. Is it that that has nothing to do that. That's not trump asking for China to investigate Biden Exchange for something right that is just trump mentioned Biden's name which trump is apt to do because dude has no filter apparently in that call and what is more troubling is trump told gee he'd remained quiet on Hong Kong protests as the trade talks progress which in and of itself immoral problem but that is not a moral problem that goes to the heart of the of the criminal activity the alleged by the way why exactly is is trump mentioning China while because Hunter Biden informed and investment consulting firm called rosemont Seneca with not with with relative of John Kerry and then he met with two top executives of China's sovereign Wealth Fund Social Security Fund and largest banks. They're not going to meet with Hunter Biden. A Must Joe Biden's daddy now. Does that mean that that Joe Biden is involved in the corruption. They're not really but it doesn't mean that hunters been taking advantage of Daddy's name and he's been doing that it for very long time. Jim Geraghty at National Review says it's fair to wonder just what Rosemont Seneca had to offer huge institutional investors beyond the steps ups on a top Democratic senator turned secretary of State John Kerry and the son of the vice president. It certainly wasn't a big firm from Giuliani. Keep insisting the Chinese paid or gave Hunter Biden and one point five billion dollars. That's not quite accurate hundred by devan Archer Jonathan Louis other business partners formed. Hr Partners in June twenty thirteen hundred Biden was an unpaid member of the board received to share of the money after his father left the White House but obviously his name being attached was not unhelpful was not unhelpful on any of that is so here is where things currently stand. We need more information. We need more. Guiliani is GONNA end up. Testifying Giuliani should and testifying he is at the center of all of this was all this merely an attempt to get Joe Biden via Ukraine my pressuring Ukraine with a quid pro quo or was this just an extension of the same efforts that the Obama Administration was making to ferret out corruption option inside Ukraine and fight that corruption by withholding aid as what Joe Biden was doing what Barack Obama was doing and again. I mentioned that Hillary Clinton was in fact involved in election shenanigans with the Ukrainian government in two thousand sixteen and so that does not justify the president's Behavior Hillary wasn't president at the time but it it does provide a backdrop for the possibility of impeachable offenses because if Obama did not committed impeachable offense and from the same thing then presumably that's not impeachable offense okay time for a quick thing that I like and then we'll get you a thing that I hate so thing that I like as I say over the weekends I tend to read lots of books one of the books that I read in the non-jewish round because as Ross Shahnawaz ringling Jewish books but one of the books that I read as herm break is a really terrific tennis book called strokes of Genius By l Jon Wertheim about the rivalry between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. I have to admit that I am a federal fan. I'm not as much of Nadahl Fan. NADAHL is a terrific player. I if you have to take one of those players all time it's probably better but if let's put it this way if Federer had dolls mentality he'd have about thirty five majors right now in any case this is about the two thousand Wimbledon final where needle finally broke through at Wimbledon. It's a really good book John L. Jon Wertheim. The book is strokes of genius. Well worth the read okay time for a quick thing that I hate all righty so there's this clip that is going around last night in which some woman gets up and suggests that the only solution to global warming is to baby. She does this at an ASC townhall meeting and again. You know I want to be fair. Believe it or not to Ao see this lady who's big nurse either crazy or my in my humble opinion troll or prankster. She immediately starts saying the the only solution to global warming is to physically children. We only have a few months love. I love you support. The green deal but it's not getting getting with a fossil fuel is not going to solve Pablo fast enough so I think next campaign slogan has to be this. We got to start eating babies. We don't have happen noth- time this too much seal to all of you your your you know your pollutant too much. Co Two you know even if he would Bob Russia. We we still have too many people too much pollution so we have to get rid of the babies. That's a big problem. Just stopping decided Nah. Ah We need the baby's okay so eos was getting all sorts of flack for not shellacking this woman and no we're not. GonNa be babies again very AOC here. If this were me it would seem like this person actually had a problem right and and that I will you know again I use responser is actually rattray says hey everyone we had a fabulous townhall tonight. I'll be highlighting some moments from it. At one point. I was concerned. There was a woman in crisis in one to ensure. We treat the situation compassionately. Let's mock or make a spectacle for all. Let's work on Medicare for Medicare for all has to do with anything but again when you watch that clip I I kinda grew. They take on this. She says this person may have been suffering from a mental mental condition and it's not okay that the right wing is mocking her and potentially making her condition or crisis worse well. I don't think the right wing is mocking her. I think they're pointing out that the that she's probably pranking. You should be a decent human being a knock it off the as far as the quote unquote right wings reaction not not not really not really super into it in. I don't think the ANC is addressing the right properly and I also think that Donald Trump is is characterizing her response properly. Eh you know everybody faces down there and public events. Everybody faces down people who are kind of crazy who get up and say things and the best thing you can do sort of tut-tutted until it goes away. I honestly I'm not going to get on a case about that. I also am not sure why she is getting on everybody. Else's case about it okay other than I hate. One quick thing. Sambi is just the worst Samantha. B is supposed to be a comedian but she's not been funny for several years. She's kind of like loan rent Hannah Gadsby so she went and met with the squad and became an honorary member of the squad and boy was it so unfunny my goodness in an effort to find a place of calm in this political storm. I went to DC to sit down with congresswoman. Omar it a a president enemy number. One and member of the phone is that the officially part of the squad come here not produced at all not not funny at all my goodness that is terrible terrible stuff from Samantha B but it is the horror to which we've grown accustomed already. We'll be backer acker later today with two additional hours all the updates otherwise. We'll see you here next week. I'm Ben Shapiro. This is the venture bureau show.

Mac apparently deep gave sort of an informal read out of the trump's alinsky call after the call ambassador. Volker received a readout from the Ukrainian presidential adviser Euromac and confirmed his intend to meet Guiliani Madrid rid erected phone call went well president trump proposed shoes any convenient dates presidents alinsky chose twenty twenty one twenty two September for the White House visit. Thanks again for your help. Please remind Mr Mayor here to share the Madrid dates folks great. Thanks and we'll do then August ninth two thousand nineteen. This is the other message that people are honing in on so there really Tu in this whole exchange exchange people are honing in on one is the the obvious quid pro quo but for what that is the Volcker message saying that if Zelinski convinces trump he'll investigate and get to the bottom of what happened in two thousand sixteen we can nail down day for a visit in Washington right they. It's unclear what the investigation is that he's mentioning which is the entire thing and that is one text message. People people are honing in on the other one is this exchange is about Ambassador Volker and Sunland about arranging a White House meeting after the Ukrainian. President makes a public statement quote. Someone's Morrison ready to get dates as soon as your Mike Confirms Volcker says excellent. How did you sway him. Sunland says not sure I did. I think president didn't really wants the deliverable Boecker said but does he know that someone said. Yep clearly lots of convoys going on Volks Zero K and it's good it's coming from two separate sources. Someone says to avoid misunderstandings. Just understandings might be helpful to ask Andre for a draft embargoed so we can see exactly what they propose to cover. Even though Zelinski does a live presser that can still summarize in a brief statement thoughts and Voelker says agree what exactly is supposed to be in that Ukraine statement. What exactly is this brokered agreement. Basically what what what is the the liberal but that the president wants and is mentioned there by someone well. On August Ninth Twenty nineteen after Giuliani met with presidencies eight Andre Your Mac Volker asked to speak with Giuliani Eliana about the Ukrainian statement Volcker said Hi. Mr Mayor had a good chat with your Mac last night. He was pleased with your phone. Call mentions Wenski making a statement. Can we all get on the phone to make sure I advise Alinsky correctly as to what he should be saying. WanNa make sure we get this done right. Thanks someone's had good idea Kurt. I'm on Pacific. Time and Giuliani said yes you can call now going to fundraiser at twelve thirty the next day hey presidents Alinsky. Xavier Mac pressed Ambassador Volker for a date for the White House visit before committing to a statement announcing an investigation explicitly referencing the two thousand sixteen election breeze my so so that is the democratic description. Here is the actual exchange so your mic says hi Kurt. Please let me know when you can talk. I think it's possible to make this declaration and mention all these things which we discussed yesterday but it will be logic to do after we receive a confirmation of date we inform about data visit and about our expectations guarantees for future visit. Let's discuss it focuses okay. It's late for you. Why don't we talk in my morning. You're after tomorrow say ten. Am Five PM Boker says I agree with your approach. Let's iron out statement and use that to get date and then President Z. Can go forward with it. Correct is okay focuses great. Gordon's veils join as well. You're Mexico's excellent once we have a date we will call for a press briefing announcing upcoming visit now minding vision for a reboot of US US Ukraine relationship including among other things breeze my an election meddling in investigations and Volker says sounds great okay so here is where you start at the first first time in any of these texts the explicit mention of breeze MMA right and breezy is mentioned in the context of election meddling in investigations and corruption that is happening in Ukraine. Biden isn't mentioned here but it's pretty obvious that the the mention of breeze MMA is meant to be about Joe Biden so if you're Democrat and you're looking at this you're saying okay. This is starting to look like smoking gone right. It's starting to look like trump asked your Mac and Zelinski to mentioned they would investigate breeze mine in return. Get visit the White House if you are the Republicans if you're trump and his administration while you're saying is president trump has a wide variety of things he thinks are corrupt in Ukraine. Those things included burris member not restricted to burris worries. MMA and the president is trying to fight corruption and thus he is asking for some sort of guarantee about reopening investigations into a wide variety of topics including Barista right so the question is is now the Biden Breezy stuff its own thing that trump is specifically asking foreign focusing in on and the corruption stuff is just an excuse or is it under the broader rubric wreck of Anti Corruption and that one is you know it's frankly it's hard to say it is. It's very hard and this is why I keep coming back to rudy. Giuliani is GONNA have to testify about the stuff. We need to see the full text of the exchanges. We need to see Rudy Giuliani testify more information better information. These are open questions now than have conclusive evidence evidence but the text messages are not good for the trump administration following the August ninth twenty nineteen outreach to Giuliani Volker in sunland had an exchange regarding the proposed Ukrainian instatement Volcker said special attention should be paid to the problem of interference in the political processes of the United States especially with the alleged involvement of sub Ukrainian politicians and I want to declare that this is unacceptable so here is the trump case for here's volkers case. I am explicitly saying I do not want Ukraine involved in your selections right in these tax what's so we are at the broader rubric of corruption. Because I'm explicitly ruling out Ukrainian interference in the American election process right. He says I wanted to clear that. This is unacceptable label. We intend to initiate and complete a transparent and unbiased investigation of all available facts episodes including those involving Burris my and the two thousand sixteen. US elections which in turn will prevent prevent the recurrence of this problem in the future and Sunlen says perfect. Let's send Andre after our call right. Obviously trump's team is saying basically the Burris might is part of brought corruption inquiry just as Manafort was brought part of the broader Obama corruption inquiry into Ukraine in two thousand sixteen on August seventeenth two thousand nineteen volcker and someone when had an exchange in which they discussed their message Ukraine. Someone says we still want Alinsky to give us an unequivocal draft in two thousand sixteen in Berea Bulker says that's the clear message so far. I'm hoping put something out there that causes him to respond with that. Sunland says unless you think otherwise all return under his call tomorrow suggests they send us a clean draft on August twenty eighth Zilenski. He's eight year. Mak Texted Ambassador Volker News Story titled Trump Holds Up Ukraine military agents confront Russia. Your mic said need to talk with you. Vulgar said absolutely on August thirtieth thirtieth trump cancelled his trip to meet Zalewski. Bill Taylor's missed the first year Bill Taylor in these exchanges Bill Taylor's Obama your holdover and so this is led to some suspicion Asian that Bill Taylor was the working with the whistle blower or the Bill Taylor was basically trying to create a narrative that this was all about by not merely about anti corruption and Bill Taylor said trip cancelled volkers had hoped the vice president keeps the bilateral and he's a White House visit. Someone says I'm going POMPEO's impose speaking to the president today to see if he can go bill Taylor says are we now saying that security assistance and White House meeting are conditioned on investigations and someone says call me said Democrats are saying well that's suspicious because why are they now using phones and not texting so sunland is going to be called to testify as well okay and now Bill Taylor is starting to to really get upset about all this rebuild. Taylor starts texting Volcker and Sunland and he saying guys. Is this really a quid quid pro quo for Biden right. Bill Taylor says the nightmares they give the interview and don't get the security assistance the Russians love it and I quit right in other words that they are going to start to do these convert the these these investigations and the Democrats are are in in the eighties hold up to Ukraine anyway and then here is the one that the Democrats are really focusing on extreme in extreme fashion today okay so this is the final when there are three real exchanges one is that supposed quid pro quo over Biden but may in fact be over-generalized investigations. One of them is the conversation about the possibility of withholding a date there is some sort of press statements that mentions the twenty sixteen elections and breeze. Ma and here's the third one between Bill Taylor and Gordon Sunland Taylor says the message to the Ukrainians and Russians we send with the decision on Security Assistance Skate with the whole that we've already shaken their faith in us thus my nightmare scenario. Tillis has counting counting on you to be right about this interview. Gordon and someone says bill. I never said I was right. I said we are where we are and believe we have identified the best pathway forward. Let's hope it works. Taylor says as I said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign and someone's has bill. I believe you're correct about President trump's intentions. The president has been crystal clear. No quid pro quos of any kind..

"That's policy Housi- Genius Dot Com okay so the Democrats continue this open letter. That's basically what it is an open letter in which they informed the media and their supposed- I said Damn there is supposed congressional colleagues but it's about the media attention about their investigation and their interview yesterday with Kurt Volker Remember Volker really only came to light because Rudy Giuliani the world's worst lawyer. It's amazing. He took that title from Michael Cohen Room. Michael Cohen went to jail. President trump does have an inhering instinct in choosing the world's worst lawyer he went to Michael Cohen Cohen and he's like this guy be great and then he's like you know. Who Can. I replace the world's worst lawyer with I know Rudy Giuliani. That's gone great and redesigning. It'd be a smart idea. I Will Oh hold on my phone on camera and say that I've texts from the State Department no way this'll go wrong in any way. This is why folks I sort of think that everything is more easily attributable to comedy of Errors Stupidity. Than it is to deep malign planning now both could be true could be a stupidly carried right out scheme but my general take on the trump administration is that when things appear to have been plans into ferry Asli instead they're usually just the reflection of incompetence and stupidity because I mean Rudy Giuliani have you seen the man on TV not great in any case the House Foreign Affairs Committee the Democrats they put forward this letter. They say the president claims he did nothing wrong even more astonishing his now openly and publicly calling for another foreign power. China to launch its own sham investigation against the Biden's to further further his own political aims. This is not normal or acceptable. It is unethical unpatriotic and wrong. American presidents should never press foreign powers to target their domestic political rivals. I I and I generally agree with that. Obviously I don't think that you should be pressing the Chai. Calms the Chinese Communist Fascist Government in Beijing to be targeting domestic political rivals in the United States engaging. These stunning abuses in broad daylight does not absolve president from his wrongdoings or his grave offenses against the constitution again. Something can be wrong long and also not illegal also could be just trump mouthing off which is I think most Americans take this form over the past week say these. Democrats new reports have revealed that other trump administration officials may also have been involved in the illicit effort to get Ukrainian help for the president's campaign for example Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo has now admitted that he was on the call when president trump trump explicitly pressed the Ukrainian president investigate the Biden's but failed to report this to the F..

"Democrats hone in on trump on void Ukraine Kurt Volker President Trump asked China to investigate the Biden's in CNN refuses run trump adds. I'm Ben Shapiro. This is the Ben Shapiro show all righty well a lot of breaking news today all that breaking news starts they big hearing that was happening on the hill yesterday with the trump trump envoy to the Ukraine Kurt Volker who's the former ambassador former special representative for Ukraine Goshi and he was communicating with other officials in the trump administration including one guy named Bill Taylor. WHO's the charged affairs at the US Embassy in Ukraine and Gordon Sunland the US ambassador to the European Union under your Mac was an aid to Ukrainian President Vladimir as Lansky and the president's agent Rudy Giuliani among others is according to the Democrats Kratz Volcker was one of the people who's mentioned in the original original whistle-blower story and vulgar one of the key players in trying to suss out what exactly blake was happening in Ukraine with regard to corruption well yesterday. Volker went to the hill to testify and he testified at length and also provided a bevy of tax between himself and the other mentioned characters just now people like Giuliani and Bill Taylor and Gordon Sunland and these texts are not great for president trump. They're not good for the trump administration now. They do leave open one very large question as we will see and that question is whether the trump administration was indeed conditioning aid and presidential presidential meetings and warm relations with the new Ukrainian administration on getting Joe Biden or whether they were doing so based on Ukraine demonstrating the fight corruption if the ladder there's nothing wrong if the latter that's exactly what Joe Biden openly says that he did back in Twenty Sixteen Joe Biden. There's that famous audio and video of him talking about how he withheld one billion Leeann dollars in Ukrainian the loan aid because he was attempting to fight corruption in Ukraine and in two thousand sixteen we also know that the Obama DOJ was meeting with members of the Ukrainian government and and trying to get them to root out corruption and we know that in two thousand eighteen three Democratic senators wrote letters to the Ukrainian government suggesting that their aid would be conditioned Russian on whether they cooperated with the Muller probe so in other words conditioning aid on fighting corruption is not in fact a crime conditioning aid on going after your domestic mastic political opponent that looks like a quid pro quo that you're doing for personal benefit okay so the Democrats have no issued a letter updating everyone on their findings and updating everybody on the contents the tax with Kurt Volker and here's what the letter says because we always bring you information first and then we break it down for you so the letter is from the head of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs Eliot Engel Adam Schiff who's the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and Elijah Cummings who's the chairman of the House Committee on oversight and reform. Here's what the letter has to you. Say quote dear colleagues we are writing to convey our grave concerns with the unprecedented actions of President Donald Trump and his administration with respect to the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry quarry the president and his aides are engaging in a campaign of misinformation and misdirection in an attempt to normalize the active soliciting foreign powers to interfere in our elections well as you'll.

"The changing nature work fine hello Monday with Jesse hampel on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen house Democrats have told the trump administration shen subpoenas are coming. That's right and the president for his part has continued to lash out as Congress moves forward with its impeachment inquiry I president trump targeted house intelligence eligible committee chairman Adam Schiff by accusing him of treason and then trump took to twitter where he broadened his focus to the Democratic Party. He tweeted that they want to quote steal deal the election. All the while these subpoenas of administration officials are mounting in the first deposition of one of those officials will take place later today. NPR National Political correspondent correspondent Mara Liasson is on the Line Good Morning Good Morning Noel so this story is moving really quickly at points in fits and starts but where do things stand right now with the white ask Congress the White House and Congress are in this epic battle over impeachment yesterday. Both sides were trying to convince the public that they are doing the right thing in the House the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff held a press conference. They wanted to prove that they could walk and Chew Gum at the same time. Nancy Pelosi talked about that the house was getting to yes on the US MCAA. That's the updated Nafta Trade Agreement. She talked about the bill. The House passed in May to reduce drug prices that she wants the Senate and the president to take a look at but they were both very tough about warning the White House what would happen if the White House refused to cooperate operate with their requests for witnesses and documents in the impeachment inquiry. Here's what Adam Schiff had to say. We are concerned that the White House will attempt to stonewall on wall are investigation much as they have stonewalled the other committees in the past It's why I say the White House needs to understand that any action like that that forces us to litigate or have to consider litigation will be considered further evidence of obstruction of justice okay so that is Adam Schiff talking tough president trump is aggrieved. He made that really clear yesterday. He talked about a coup on twitter. He cussed on twitter east his behavior behavior helping shift opinion on whether or not he did something wrong that is not clear yet so far. The polls have shown a little uptick in the support for worthy impeachment inquiry. I wouldn't call it a groundswell yet yesterday. Donald Trump turn to his standard operating procedure whenever he's imperilled only this one was a little higher octane. He said the press was corrupt. As you said he accused the Democrats investigating him of treason that's a capital crime punishable by death. He said Joe Biden was stone-cold crooked. He even suggested that he might bring a major lawsuit to respond to the Muller investigation. That's a little unclear how that would work and the irony is that that this is all a self inflicted wound. He's the one who decided to release the transcript of the call with the president of Ukraine which has fueled the fire of the impeachment inquiry and and instead of just pocketing the victory that Bob Muller gave him and moving on he has obsessively pursued this investigation of the investigators trying trying to prove that the muller probe was a partisan witch hunt and that even his own intelligence and law enforcement community was wrong about Russian involvement in two thousand sixteen gene so he is fueling this fire I mean and at this point Congress looks likely to keep requesting documents and witnesses president trump did say yesterday that he's going to cooperate great. This is a fraudulent crime on the American people but we'll work together. We're shifty shifty Pelosi and all of them and we'll see what happens I mean if we look at how the President has acted in the past does that seem likely cooperation will the president has always tried to appear to be cooperative and fearless like he has nothing to hide and then in the end he doesn't produce information and his White House pretty much has stonewalled Congress in other investigations but on this one they have been turning over documents since they didn't fight to keep the whistle blower complaints secret they did something unprecedented when they release the transcript usually president and foreign leaders conversations are not released to the public doc and that might make it harder for them to withhold other pieces of information and documents that Congress is requesting. NPR's Mara Liasson. Thanks so much all right. The next next move in the inquiry is a closed deposition later today. The man being deposed the diplomat named Kurt Volker Volcker was the US special envoy to Ukraine until hill he resigned last week that was after the whistle blower complaint named him alleging that he connected trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to Ukrainian officials volker is GonNa be the first official to testify on the whistle blower charges fueling the impeachment probe. He'll appear in front of three congressional committees. NPR's Michelle Kellerman has been following all of this and Michelle before we get to who Kurt Volker is I wanNA follow up on something we talked about yesterday. The State Department's Inspector General Plan to hand over some documents to Congress he did did but it was not really what anyone expected. Can you explain what happened there yeah what what they were shown was a a package of documents containing what some described as debunked bunked conspiracy theories about the former. US Ambassador to Ukraine the son of Vice President Joe Biden and others last night on CNN trump's private lawyer Rudy Rudy Giuliani said well he sent over some of those documents to the State Department and and was told that they were going to investigate this and I should say no well that that this kind of smear campaign was certainly getting a lot of play in right wing media at the time so none of this was really a surprise but since Marie Ivanovich the former ambassador was abruptly fired in May hey this provide some context to that and she's one of the people who is expected to speak to the hill committees on this impeachment inquiry and the the man speaking today Kurt Volker. Who is he well? He spent the last couple of years as a part time. US envoy his job was really to push back against Russian AH aggression in Ukraine and end the war and they help end the war in the east of the country. He has a strong background in the region. He was a foreign service officer who worked in President Bush's National Security Council and was Bush's ambassador to NATO at the end of the administration he was also close to the late Senator John McCain and runs the McCain Institute in Washington and the whistle blower complaint says that Volcker did what exactly well. They say that he was helping helping you. The Ukrainian government navigate president trump's demands. You know this was if you think about this year in Ukraine you had a comedian political novice who won elections in Ukraine that surprised a lot of people at the same time you have Rudy Giuliani who has the president's air with all of this effort to dig up dirt about Joe Biden's on looking into the origins of the Miller report. You have a president who's fixated on that and Volker were setting up contacts between the incoming Zilenski government and Giuliani so I think that's what the whistle blower means when they say a that he was trying to help the Ukrainian government navigate president trump's demands and just quickly. What do these congressional committees want to learn from him today? What are they gonNA ask well? They're going to want to know if that's the accurate picture of that's what he was trying to do and also whether he knew about the president's decision to hold up military aid to Ukraine during this time and whether the president was using that aid as leverage to get dirt on his opponent ponant okay so the big question. NPR's Michele Keleman thanks so much Rachelle sure thing.
