"And now to some twenty twenty news for weeks. Senator Elizabeth. Warren has been speaking out against campaigns. That have been influenced by consultants in a not so subtle dig on South Bend Mayor Pete Buddha Judge in the past few days. She's begun to make that more explicit calling the mayor out by name. I think that their paycheck each should open up the doors so that anyone can come in and report on what's being said though store should be closed and no one should be left to wonder what what kind of promises made to the people who can pony up big bucks to be in that clip. You just heard was warren on Thursday telling reporters in Boston that budejovice should allow reporters into his fundraising events. She also says the mayor should release his list of updated. Bundlers I E. These are the rich guys who run basically what our phone trees of money for various candidates and campaigns. Buddha had done so in the past but that list has not been updated as of late for a little bit of context here in terms of how the candidates are raising their money Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders do not hold private fundraising events with big donors while judge and former vice president. Joe Biden do but but Biden notably has to his credit opened. His fundraisers to reporters suggests is a little bit of an outlier on on that. Yeah and how did the campaign respond. They WANNA start. Start Eight transparency war. That is okay. What the battle is going to be Between Him and Warren Right now They started by saying that warrant should open up up The doors to the decades of tax returns that she is hiding. Warren has released eleven years of tax returns which covers the Center for time in public office but not from before two two thousand eight at the time when she was a law professor at Harvard and head corporate clients to now later on Sunday warrants campaign did in fact release a little bit more information mission about the people whom she did consulting another legal work. The basic gist of it was over the span of three decades. She was compensated for nearly two million dollars so not crazy amounts but yeah that's like the latest on the Transparency Front so then on Friday night for the first time in the midst of this sort of new pressure and scrutiny. That's that's on the Buddha judge campaign. They decided to release more information about his work. At McKinsey and company now people will remember. That's obviously the consulting firm that very recently has had terrible headlines For working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency in the trump administration on on things that they described quote detention saving opportunities. Yeah Yeah Rolling. My eyes everybody listening to my the video video will soon for that. Buddha has obviously also gotten a lot of questions about the firm for a long time and they're increasing as he sort of gaining in the race he hasn't revealed the full client list that he worked for citing a nondisclosure agreement but now he's publicly requested to be released from the. Here's a Buddhist responded to some of those questions and the general heightened scrutiny in a press conference on Friday night opening your tasers fundraisers and that's a question that reporters asked him for months House on wondering. When do you expect to the conversation and cancer? By the time the handed directly wasn't just record. Yes have you done a lot of considerations questions can you thank you do Wow really dodging it. So why is this all happening now. before the last debate you are nostradamus about everyone going after Buddha jade's because he's rising in the polls and that kind of fell flat so are you willing to make another bad prediction that we'll have you for the rest of your life. Yeah sure why not This just seems more legit. Because I think that there's more pressure on all the candidates right and like Warren is is finally calling Buddha judge out by name and that is something that is new and as they get closer to Iowa. It's just going to increase. The temperature is going to increase between the the two of them. But broadly speaking I think this is all happened and come to a head for a couple of reasons. One sort of the fact that Warren has seen a a bit of a slide in Iowa and butit's has gone up and that's because they may or may not be trading off of these sort of The more college educated white liberal voter. That's in Iowa and the other is that this is a function of the candidates being frustrated with Buddha judge. Not just about the fundraisers razors themselves. But they're wondering how it came to be. This guy began marketing himself as sort of a young progressive at the start of the year and has shifted ideologically weekly throughout the year. All while bringing in heaps of money at these fundraisers they're wondering pretty openly now if there's a connection between those things and if what he's saying they're behind behind closed doors is different than what he's saying in public and if he's changing his mind because that money is coming in okay so maybe this debate will have some actual fireworks six. What else might the good people at home have? Missed about twenty twenty over the past couple of days so it wasn't all Buddha Judge in Warren Senator Cory Booker's campaign said that they had raised more than one a million dollars in like three or four day span after Senator Harris dropped out Booker is going to most likely miss the next debate. And that's been part part of the conversation that he and some of the other candidates are having where booker has said for instance that the race has more billionaires than black people. I just did the math. Yeah it's an easy number I can. I can count. Which is which is not saying saying good things and speaking of one of those billionaires former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg number Had this crowd pleasing remark about the role of reporters at his news organization in a recent interview with CBS. This morning I think people have said to me. How can you investigate yourself herself? And I said I don't think you can but if you take a look at the Bloomberg News Organization we carry news from lots of different places like New New York Times and the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. There's plenty of ways for people to get news about the candidates if they look at Bloomberg. The News on news reports have complained. They think it's unfair that they're not allowed to investigate other Democratic candidates because their boss we have you I just have to learn to live with some things. They get a paycheck but with with your paycheck comes some restrictions and responsibilities. Wonderful Awful Reminder here that what the Bloomberg News Organization is doing now that Bloomberg is in the race is that they aren't allowed to do twenty twenty twenty reporting on Bloomberg and because they can't they also aren't going to do it on the other Democratic candidates so they're sitting there handcuffed and he's being like why are you getting paid so like. Why does it matter I mean jeeze maybe pay them a little more? I don't know exactly. And lastly just to close the loop on that we talked about on our last show former vice president. Joe Abide in briefly defended an interaction. He had with a voter recently in Iowa in which he called him a quote Damn Liar and challenged him to a push up contest by untold. NPR are quote was challenging me. What kind of shape? And so I- kid I said wants to do a push up contest. I was joking. Yeah you gotta be careful. He make jokes about that. It let you know because someone might take you up on it. Yes we know from ALTEA recent history. In fact that that's the case Little wide for you. We all just did push ups for for the show totally normal stuff. I totally did some to. Yes but the wreckage.

I there's treason which the committee defined as quote a deliberate betrayal of the nation nation. And its security. Then there's bribery defined as quote when the president offers solicits or accept something of personal value to influence his own official actions now notable in that definition is that even if a bribe isn't accepted it still counts as impeachable if a bribe was offered or solicited getting through that one and and lastly high crimes and misdemeanors which divided into three categories including abusive power.

Adam Schiff wrote a letter to Vice President Pence his office requesting that they declassify supplemental evidence from Pinch Aid Jennifer Williams about a phone call. The vice president had with Ukrainian Presidents Alinsky back in September in his letter. Shift asked to declassify the portions of that call. That wouldn't interfere with national security. The vice president's office is predictably refused saying that quote because Adam Schiff continues to operate in an underhanded manner the office of the vice president does not even know what he wants declassified and how can someone be underhanded when they're asking you for something directly to your face do not understand.

You'll Remember Cup was subpoenaed by Democrats in the impeachment inquiry and the White House told him not to comply. He's asking the judge to decide whether he should listen to the White House or Congress. So this judge's ruling will decide whether we'll hear from Mr Cup and it could also apply to others who haven't testified like former real national security adviser John Bolton and basically everywhere is reporting that the articles of impeachment will be debated and voted on by the Judiciary Committee by the end of this week. This has been your impeachment. Mint News blast.

The Warren peace report, I made me good. Then we begin today's show looking at secretary of defense, James. Madness. Who's announced he's resigning at the end of February while publicly rebuking, President Trump's foreign policy matters resigned. One day after President Trump ordered the withdrawal of all two thousand US troops from Syria and on the same day reports emerged that Trump has ordered the withdrawal of about seven thousand troops from Afghanistan. That's about half the current US force there it is resignation letter General Mattis, four star, general and -plicitly criticized President Trump's foreign policy. He wrote my views on treating allies with respect and also being clear eyed about both malign actors strategic competitors are strongly held informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance and international order that is most conducive to our security prosperity in values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances unquote, Madison onto say because you have the right to have a secretary of defense whose views are better. Aligned with yours on these and other subjects I believe. It's right for me to step down from my position. He said in the letter Madison, not make a direct reference to Syria, but he did call out Russia and China the New York Times reports Madison's the first prominent cabinet member to resign in protest over a national security issue in almost forty years. Much of the Washington establishment express shock over Madison's resignation democratic Senator Mark Warner Virginia said quote. This is scary secretary Mattis has been an island of stability. Amidst. The chaos of the Trump administration Republican Senator Mark Rubio, Florida responded to Madison's resignation saying it makes it abundantly clear that we're headed towards a series of grave policy errors, which will endanger our nation damage our alliances and empower our adversaries unquote prior to his time at the Pentagon.

Now, if you could I respond to the resignation of the secretary of defense, and then if this were President Obama, and he was announcing the. Pullout of troops from Syria and half the force from Afghanistan. Wouldn't the peace movement be celebrating? What is your response? This is an interesting situation. I have to think that Trump must have expected that this abrupt announcement of withdrawal from Syria would lead to Mattis's of resignation in it probably something that Trump welcomes. There's no question that Mattis has been an obstacle to Trump's efforts to reorient US policy particularly policy in the Middle East. No medicines letter of resignation that you quote, it when he talked about his four decades of a gauge -ment with these matters is very telling he represents the establishments perspective that has involved over the course of those for decades. And for anyone says looks at you as policy over the past four decades. Particularly in the Middle East and says, yeah, it's really going. Well, then then I would think that they would you Madison's resignation as as a disappointment. Now when Trump ran for the presidency, he denounced our wars in the Middle East. He promised to withdraw militarily from the Middle East two years into his presidency. That hasn't happened in many respects Madison's been among those who frustrated the president's efforts. He's the commander of chief. Nettie seems not to be able to get things done. So here he is acting as the commander cheese now, I'm in the camp, the thanks that we ought to wind down these wars. We got more important things to do. My only problem with Trump's decision is like so many of Trump's decisions it's done impetuously overnight. Not having been thought through not having been coordinated. Yes, let's get out of Syria. But that doesn't mean leash. Should have a policy with respect to the civil war in Syria. I think that the way Trump is approaching this thing, we don't have any policy, and that's going to be a problem. Ghia think there's a connection to the murder of Jamaica show Chan let let me explain you have the CIA saying, they believe that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia was responsible for his death and dismemberment and in stumble in Saudi consulate so you then have President Trump dealing with air doin-. And apparently this week they had a conversation. There's this threat of air doin that he's going to go after the Kurds. These are the US allies the Kurds soldiers in Syria and Trump perhaps aired one knows something more about the murder certainly has been releasing information that looks that makes the Trump administration. Very bad and their supported the crown prince also Jared Kushner, a Senate lost so close to an advising the crown prince and dealing with this murder. That aired one says we're gonna Tak the courage. You gotta stop being there and protecting them. And so Trump says he's pulling out.
