DC A jury found Roger Stone own guilty of obstruction witness tampering and lying to Congress these conviction stem from a case brought by former special counsel Robert Muller as part of the Russia investigation. NPR's justice correspondent Ryan. Lucas is back in the studio to tell us more. Welcome back you were at the courthouse where the trial took place. What did you see today? Well the jury sorry actually began Its deliberations yesterday. This was a six day trial and then just before noon today. They returned their verdict. The nine women and three men on this jury found guilty on all seven counts so one count each of obstruction and witness tampering and then five counts of making false statements to Congress. Stone was of course in the courtroom. Today is dressed in suit had a pocket square. Dark Tie some glasses After the jury filed in stone was asked to stand put his glasses on and listen to the jury is one count after another came back guilty now for a man who is known for his outsized personality. He showed no emotion. He was impassive as happened when he left the courthouse. He was surrounded by this gaggle of cameras he got into into into a black SUV and left. He did not speak at all. There is still a gag order in him on this case at least for now ahead of his sentence he's prevented from speaking Remind us how how we got here because as we mentioned the roots of this are in that investigation into Russian interference in the election. Right so back in two thousand seventeen house. Lawmakers were investigating zero Russia's interference in the in the two thousand sixteen election stone testified before Congress is part of that This case against him stems from that appearance before Congress in in that that testimony stone lied to lawmakers about his efforts to contact wikileaks during the campaign he wanted to find out from wikileaks. What the group was up to what it planned to do with thousands and thousands of democratic emails that it had in its possession? These are emails of course at the. US Government says were hacked by Russia and wikileaks ultimately did publish those emails during the campaign and they became a big part of the discussion of that campaign as the government ultimately proved at trial stone also tried to intimidate a witness to testify truthfully to Congress All of these actions amounted to obstructing house investigation and prosecutors. Interestingly during the during the trial so that stone did all of this effort to protect trump. What about stones owns attorneys? What was the defense case? They made to the jury so they argued that stone never intended to light congress. They said that there was nothing wrong with trying to find find out what wikileaks was up to at route. They argued that basically this case against stone was was misguided stone himself did not testify. Interestingly his lawyers didn't call any witnesses witnesses on his behalf now there has long been talk. That stone has been angling for a pardon from the president. These two of course have known each other since the Nineteen Eighty S. The the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment about a possible. Pardon the president the president however did Did take to twitter to comment on on the on the verdict and stones case he he complained about stone being found guilty by a jury and he asked why Hillary Clinton Former FBI director James Comey a special counsel. Robert Muller Why those those three and others aren't going to jail? I WANNA come back to the convicted here because the Muller investigation is closed so what kind of impact can this verdict have. This verdict on Roger Stone have for the Russia probe in general so the the Russia investigation is closed. There are a number of investigations at spun out of it that we know of from the Muller reports. Some of those may still be ongoing but stone was the last person charged as part of this investigation. He was the second person to be found guilty in a jury trial. The other was Paul Manafort. There are a number number of others who pleaded guilty as for stone.

Trump took aim at IANOVICH even as the public hearing was underway intelligence committee chairman. Adam Schiff asked her about a tweet by the president during the hearing. What would you like to respond to the president's attack that everywhere you went turned bad? I I mean I don't I don't think I have such powers not Mogadishu Somalia Somalia and not in other places. I actually think that Where I've served over the years I and others have demonstrably Made things better you know for the US as well as for the countries That I served in joining me now from Washington with more details. His Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Towel Byron. Tell us about that moment. We just heard where Uvarov vich responded more or less in real time to the president's criticism of her certainly very interesting. It was essentially you know the president and a witness in in his impeachment inquiry having a dialogue even though they essentially weren't in the same room and I think a lot of Democrats found her answer. Very compelling you know especially the part where she said that it's quite intimidating out that the president tweets that at his critics and you even saw the chairman. Adam Schiff suggests that that the president's tweet could be seen as witness tampering or witness intimidation and an attempt to derail the congressional probe before going public today. Uganda bitch had also testified behind. Closed Doors Byron. What else struck you about her appearance before Congress today we know I think she came across as a A career career public servant. She went out of her way to emphasize that she served presidents of both parties. She joined the Foreign Service during the Reagan administration. She's been appointed ambassador by both George W Bush in Barack Obama. She came across as sober she. She generally avoided waiting into the partisan controversy and and tried to stick to the facts but she also spoke from the heart quite often talking about her family. Escaping persecution in the Soviet Union Nazi Germany and and what serving America means to her and talking about what the personal impact of basically her removal as ambassador hat on her in her wife. We've now heard from three witnesses. Who testified publicly this week taken together? What kind of picture are we starting to see? Or what kind of picture they painting of what went on here here between the. US and Ukraine. Will they certainly raise a lot of questions about the direction of US Ukraine relations specifically who was managing it. We've we've now heard from three State Department officials who say essentially that there was this sort of outside channel outside influence on. US foreign policy that had a direct lines president trump and bypass the normal channels in the State Department. Democrats are pushing the notion that the president's actions around in Ukraine warrant his removal from office and Republicans essentially are saying nothing to see here. But in general we're seeing this portrait of Career State Department officials official's being very befuddled by the direction of the president trump decided to take US foreign policy. That's Wall Street. Journal reporter Byron Towel joining us from Washington iron. Thank thank you so much breaks revenue and now a Wall Street Journal exclusive. We report that federal investigators in New York are looking into whether Rudy Giuliani president. Trump's personal lawyer stood to profit from a Ukrainian natural gas deal will our Rebecca Davis. O'Brien says it could give us another piece of the puzzle into the US pressure campaign in Ukraine and she joins me now in our studio in New York. So so Rebecca. What can you tell us about what exactly federal prosecutors are looking into regarding? Rudy Giuliani and links to Ukrainian energy projects. Sure federal prosecutors shooters in the southern district of New York are looking into whether Rudy. Giuliani wasn't a position to profit personally from Ukrainian natural gas business. That was being pushed promoted by two of his associates. Eager Furman and left Parnis. Remind us again about these associates. Are they revealing more details about their work with Giuliani. I don't know if it's it's them I think reporting has been you know across a lot of different media. Let's has been talking about what they were up to. They seem to have been crisscrossing Ukraine and in the United States as part of it sort of an arm of Mr Giuliani. They were helping him sort of circle the wagons on some investigations. Mr Giuliani was pushing for on behalf of president trump. They were sort of working with him there and they were charged last month in the southern district of New York with campaign finance related violations. So Oh have you heard from Rudy. Giuliani in regards to your reporting on the story. I did speak with him and his lawyer this morning. As the restore shows he vigorously denies being in a position to prophet from this or having any business interests in Ukraine and of course our story is merely saying that southern district prosecutor looking at that and that And and more broadly that Mr Freeman and Mr Parnasse were in the Ukraine representing that they were working with Rudy Giuliani and this project and then he would have a piece of it so it's a little bit complicated. But I'm I'm sure that reporters and prosecutors will get to the bottom of it so all eyes are on the impeachment hearings today. So what are the potential implications here for the impeachment inquiry. Well I think one thing that's interesting and it's not. I don't have any indication. This is part of the southern district inquiry but it does fill in another piece of this puzzle about the broader pressure campaign. That Rudy Giuliani. Juliani was apparently part of what we learned in my reporting. Is that in these meetings. In Ukraine which Mr Kearney's Mr Ferman were seeking assistance with investigations into Joe Biden and the two thousand sixteen election and gathering support for the ouster of the ambassador who testified today that they were also talking about these energy projects and Nafta gas which is the Ukraine's state-owned energy company. So it fits into this broader piece of sort of influence peddling peddling which is at the heart along with Rudy Giuliani's work of what was going on in the Ukraine. That's Wall Street Journal reporter. Rebecca Davis O'Brien joining me here in our studio in New York. Thank you so much thank you do. Finally it's been a bit of a strange week on Wall Street on Friday. The Dow closed above twenty-eight thousand for the first time on optimism over trade and the economy and on Tuesday the Dow also did something. It almost never does. It ended the session exactly where it closed on Monday. Exactly and that got some market watchers in a tizzy our Karen Langley explained. And when you think of the thousands of trades that are going on all around the world throughout the trading day in the stocks that make up the Dow. It's just remarkable that all of those numbers would balance out at the end of the day to the precise to the decimal point number as the Dow closed off the day before. It's just really weird that that that would happen. Our team investigated and found that in the past one hundred twenty three years. That's more than thirty. Three thousand trading days. The Dow has ended the session unchanged change just one hundred sixty seven times Nand. It's been awhile since that's happened. An unchanged Dow or an in Wall Street parlance hadn't happened for more than in five years. It last happened in April of twenty fourteen and when we looked back we saw that this has happened three times since two thousand and did it happen more frequently in the earlier. Years of the Dow Index is a little bit smaller but seems to have been getting more. And more rare. Finance Finance Geeks are still unraveling the mystery of the UNCH. What do you think? Let us know by tweeting US at W. S. J. podcasts. And that's what's news for this Friday afternoon soon. I'm Ameri for totally for the Wall Street Journal. Thanks for listening.

Topics from his on air confrontation with Rudy Giuliani said there was no pollution between the campaign or between people in the campaign to he says, we do need more barriers as the border. Hot topics are on the table with Whoopie. I'll be huntsmen joy Behar sunny hostile and Meghan McCain. Now, let's get things started. There is a glimmer of hope on day thirty four. Bless you. Dave thirty four the government shutdown guy in the White House tweeted that he will agree to Nancy Pelosi suggestion to postpone the state of the union and till the shutdown ends he says he's not looking for an alternative venue for the address because quote, there is no venue that can compete with the history tradition and importance of the house chamber. I look forward to giving a great state of the union address in the near future. And everyone is saying, well, wait a minute. What happened? Yeah. Trust this this is that was weird. I mean since when have you seen him just give up like that? Thanks bye. Another woman. I don't know. I it sounds so nice. On this. So I thought he had just recanted right before we came out. Whatever. But I've thought again, we're in live every five seconds. And something happened farthing? Yeah. You didn't know, but I I will flow. Con when she's seen it as and nine. Listening to someone in the White House. Maybe Kushner someone who is like this. You can't there's no one wants to listen to the speech right now. No one wants to be in that room. When you're giving that speech, this has got to end before you speak to the nation or. The networks may have said, yeah. Hey, really wanna shoot this in the backyard? We think that this should be this should be in the chamber. So we're probably not going to cover it. Well now. Yeah. Yeah. He could do it off. That's not a wrong, you're gonna go to the Oval Office. He needs thousands to to applaud him and tell him how Grady is also thought he might go to the border do something symbolic on the air. Alley earlier this week. I I would not go into the chamber until after it's just I don't think it's safe. A lot of folks. I know that are in Washington say, well, you know, I don't feel as comfortable going in there. And till everybody's back to work all security is that. You have a TSA. I yes, you would talk about the TSA. What I would know this not an announcement. No. I didn't say, no, no, no. I don't know what that. You had one day on on on the announcement from the of the guy that runs the TSA just that he was on television yesterday winning people that the air controllers going to dwindling down to zero it's becoming very dangerous to fly, and they Queant is not being updated. And it's extremely extremely dangerous. And what's what what are they waiting for? They waiting for God forbid, another crash an airline crash. What are they waiting for the only person who's enjoying this shutdown is Putin? I think there is a suggestion by Senator call Mark one democrat for VA. He proposed the stupidity act. Prevent shutdowns preserving the previous years fund funding levels during disagreements however, it would not preserve funding for congress or the White House, which means that everybody else would get paid. But congress and the white not get paid until they. Said it's the stop stupidity act takes the aggressive but necessary step of forcing the president and congress to do the jobs. They were elected to do. Ago with the congress has the vote on that they would have to the White House. The president has a sign it, right? Not get a certain percentage of of lawmakers to vote on it. And it doesn't matter what the president on not getting paid. He also has a huge well with you know, it is crazy that. That. It's crazy. The people that aren't make a decision whether government shutdown or not are not actually personally impacted by the shutdown drew. They don't actually feel the pain that people feel. So if I want to have great healthcare, and they still deny that they want to deny it to the American health. This is old. Hole. No, this is an old story with them. So we say this every single day. I mean, not to it's groundhog day in here. And I think in our country as well not to be callous about this. But we were saying this every day, and there, I actually appreciate Democrats who were taking responsibility to like congresswoman Lissa stole Nick from Michigan. Who said democrat leaders need a quote get in the damn room because the issues will not resolve itself. Mike barnicle this morning on morning, Joe said watching this play out a stunning stunning portrait of complete ignorance on both sides with reality of the shutdown is doing I still stand by it makes everybody look bad. Not just president. Well, people disagree with you. Because sixty percent say Trump is responsibility for the shutdown. Can we show that clip of him taking responsibility should outlet? Shook down the government for border security because the people of this country don't want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into a country. So I will take the mantle I will be the one to shut it down. I'm not gonna blame you for the last time you shut it down. It didn't work. I will take the mantle of shutting out. I really quick. Trump. No, I know. I know you want to impeach them. I got it. You question. I'm not being I hate being nice. Question. What's not gonna cheap applause line? Because I would rather not. Controlled tomatoes at the Republican once what's the question. What's the question? Kratz you as a democrat. What culpability do you hold in this because it's everyone is screwed right now. And I just read to examples of people say the Democrats to get involved to what will would you lie to a couple of things on the table today that the Democrats put forth. So let's say they they've already thrown it in. They just don't want to build the wall given everything else there's giving drones. They giving him more more people giving him everything except the wall because it's immoral and it's useless. And they know it. Audience in this room outside watching behind the cameras about what is actually happening in the country, and what we want to happen in the country. And I'm well aware that at this table every single day. We want him impeach. And I say the proverbial way. And I'm just right now, you're talking about TSA workers who aren't being paid. These are real people. Bottom wind things people aren't getting paid both sides should be adults about this looting. They show we get it. Politics. Everyone ever isn't it true that Trump manufactured vis nightmare? Isn't it? True. That Trump is all. I haven't even that Trump manufactured this need for the wall. He's the one that pulled DACA. He's the world. So yes. He has that. Bayer. He's also the person that already said he would take responsibility for the shutdown. The title understand. Why all of a sudden both sides are responsible for the country. I don't understand. I had two things happen to me this morning. I was at the coffee shop. Yes, I drink a Cup of coffee pregnant, don't judge me. And a guy came up to me. He was like where are you going to move in the country falls apart? And I was where where am I gonna move? He said, well, I'm going to go somewhere warm, and I left there. And I was like this is so sad. This is such got on the phone with my brother who's currently serving this country overseas. And I said I was explained to him. Yeah. And I really sad time in this country yet is he said, it's really sad. But you know, what who started it? That's, but you know, what here's my point. That's not where the conversation went with my brother because his focus isn't on politics. Focuses on the goodness of this country is that what motivates him everyday? And he said, you know, how many times in history this country's overcome moments that we think were at the brink, whether it's civil rights, whether it's a Vietnam war, whether it true, the civil war. He said we will get their side of this. And we will get there because they are noth- good people in this country that care about each other that will get us there. And I'd say on the show. This. This show. Okay. So negative, and I just want to be reminded of the goodness that we have the goodness that can happen. What I'd like to say personally is I'd like to see in every state all of the utilities. I'd like to see you all wave your bills for the next couple of months. Yeah. I would like to see don't pay the Bill. No. I would like your company for. Nice. Yeah. I would like to company mortgage companies. That's how we can sort of push this along because as I said the other day, you know, they're doing what they're doing. But what we can do is try to help other out Antill. The fan stops moving and stuff stops coming out from the fan. So there are lots of things that can be done. And I think if all the companies get in and give these kids these people break that would be helpful that would allow the children to go to sleep without worrying that mommy and daddy can't pay their bills. That's what will be back. Later towing out drums. Former fixer Michael Cohen claims threats from the president and Rudy Giuliani are keeping him from testifying. Why the president says the only thing Coen's threatened by is the truth. Okay. So there's a big election coming and the question on everyone's mind is your contender in twenty twenty gonna run for president. Are you run for president? You're going to run for president. With so much on the line. The newsmakers come here because it's the best place. In this epic year ahead. Anybody who's anybody who wants to make it to the next level in politics to come on this show because this is the place to be heard few Republican the make news come on the show view on ABC. Stemmer head CNN's. Chris Cuomo man's the hot topics table. Michael Cohen says he's postponing his testimony to congress because of recent threats to family by you know, who and his lawyer Rooney Guiliani take a look he should give information may be on his father in law because that's the one that people wanna look at because where does that money? That's the money into family is father was Ukrainian his father law. Millions and millions. Of course, it's not I'm telling you come from the Ukraine, the reason that important is he may have ties to something called organized crime. So just because he's from the Ukraine, right? He might have. What does I mean that is flawed thinking a lot of percents a real strategy because it was the same point you heard from the president? And then from his lawyer like they had talked by how do we change the narrative in well, but it's only getting witness tampering. Right. Yeah. I was gonna say not only thinking it could very well be a federal crime if you're witness tampering that's twenty years in federal prison, if you're guilty of that. And you know this. President doesn't know the law is not a lawyer on what Giuliani was the US attorney of the southern district of New York, which arguably is the most powerful US attorney's office in the country, and he headed it for like how six years as his working for free. It's just it's it's to me it's like kit. Right. I feel sorry for Michael Cohen because he's frightened than his frightened for his family. But I put them in witness protection, this is a mob movie. Anyway, it put him in the whole families to witness protection at least temporarily while he testified on February seven. Yeah. I was I was I was stunned but by this because again Rudy Giuliani. I've said it before it feels like he's getting tripped up on his live very confused witness tampering, though, wouldn't we wouldn't be in trouble for that. They'd be. Maybe jimmy. Is exempt wall. Jail is that the hypothetical? Q's ING him. But I'm saying if I had no idea that it was witness tampering. Like, including be if it's deemed to be witness tampering because basically, what witness tampering is when you're trying to intimidate someone from saying something about what's happening in the father with the Bravo. Yes. The movie again. But the craziest thing to me is the logic of just because he's from here might mean he's involved with. But one could say the same thing about any number of people and peoples family a lot of people in the Ukraine. I mean, let's go back to annex Crimea who are seriously and intensely protesting against Putin and his Terrence regime, so let's get those back, right? Yeah. Person foremost above mazing people in Ukraine and have been fighting for a very long time. So I with that the other thing I wanna say this Greco Roman spectacle of the Muller testimony. That was going to happen that now may or may not happen. He's seventy. Yeah. It's going to go into the Greco Roman dome. And we're all going to watch had each other tear each other apart. That's what this is everything is a great spectacle. Now, it's not politics anymore. Can't they slowly with watching this? Seventy hours tester has seventy hours Muller of testimony, which I said seems like a lot to me. So what was the point of the public testimony anyway other than Michael Cohen zone ego wanting to say because people like you. Yeah, that's me. But people like you who are on the left. Now think he's no k guy. Now, I thought that was his redemption he wanted he wanted to absolve himself from being in the Trump administration. Can I miss? Role in getting this president out. He's okay. With may. Okay. It's in our best interest from him to do this. Going to serve three years in federal prison and make a difference. If he does a public Greco Roman testimony on cable news for us. I think it does all I know that we wanna know we're at twilight. All I know. It's like, I always say, take a breath. We're going to know the truth because the mole reports gonna come out at some point. He is done. We will see world Ernie general a lot of this depends on him. And he might be adopting there. They're not going to be the smoking gun here. I don't know what's going to play with with his tampering, but we will find the truth. And if Trump has done something to get him out of the White House. We will. Public testimony or not. That's the question. Does it matter to anyone as my aunt? Julia one said, what do they need a brick to form their heads? I actually don't know what. Guilty. What guys? Is all over the place on this guy that just waiting for a smoking gun. Got no more problems. I think that. He is concerned about his kids. Michael, I think he is also really kind of freaked out. I don't know that he's a good guy. I don't know. I don't. Well, no is dumb is dumb guy. Yeah. He's also high. Yeah. A lot of people have been hired by the president United States and one of the things that we keep asking for from everybody from both sides transparency. So do people want to know a lot of people do a lot of people. Don't it's going to do what it does like everything else in life. We will be right back. I'm Chris Cuomo. Did you hear what the head of the air traffic controller said about how safe it is defined with this shutdown? And I have some new information about Michael coons potential testimony all coming up. See you soon. He had them one show on CNN right now. And you know, that must drive, you know, when White House a little nutty. A little bit. But we're glad to have him back here on this show. We don't get enough. Please welcomes CNN's Chris. Oh. Oh. Would just having a conversation about Michael calling. You're also a lawyer based on what you've heard should they be looking at with witness tampering. Does it lives to the level of witness tampering? I think they have to and the reason to build on sonny's point is that witness tampering doesn't have to be successful to be wrong via tempt is enough. And if you look what the president has been saying you have to do an examination of the hardest part of the long correct me if I'm wrong, which is motivation. Why is the president's saying what he's saying about his father in law? Now can just be this is what this president chooses to do with his political power is that he likes to disparage those who he sees as opposition that could be it could be that. He believes that by saying this. He will quiet Michael Cohen. And right now if he was right? It was because it did do I believe Michael Cohen's through. His counsel his fears about his family, I do because in God willing. You guys don't have to feel this when you on the wrong side of the president in the perspective of those who support him. It is a frightening place. The most powerful man in the world he is without question. The most powerful, man. Should they supplied Michael Cohen? So looking at their statement. I don't think they're there right now they have said they don't wanna reward the tactic of the president. Okay. Well, then they have to figure out how to comfort Michael Cohen and make him say could they subpoena him? Yes. I think a lot of what we're dealing with in this dynamic with the probe is not about whether or not something is a crime. It's about what is wrong. It's not about whether or not the president to your earlier conversation has the right to do something. It's about whether or not what he's doing is. Right. That me Giuliani could possibly go to jail is. No now. Yes, Sunny's analysis is it possible. Yes. But I do not see that. I don't see shining of former US attorney for the southern district of New York. Right. It saying the things that he is saying to you. Yes. To me. No. And this is this is Don started calling me both sides. Here's here's why. Because I don't see prosecutions as the eventual outcome of the Muller probe. I could be wrong. I'm open to it happens on a daily basis. I see report coming out that is damning in terms of wrongdoing things that people knew wrong and did anyway things that the president knew about in wasn't honest about with the American people, which I believe should be the bar of accountable behavior from the highest elected official in the land, not criminality. So if he didn't commit a felony. It's okay, that's not our standard. But there is a specially on the left a bar of satisfaction that as well. The presidency must ended after this just a little bar. He must be impeached. He must be gone after this. I tell people to slow their role on that. But because the concern isn't legitimate. But the process is all votes Joyce happened. If they run all we have tremendous amount of circumstantial evidence. On witness tampering on collusion on on obstruction of Justice right to face. Yes. Why is he still there because this is a political process? We know that the guidance from the DOJ is you don't indict a sitting president has Muller asked for different guidance. We don't think so has Rosenstein ask for different guidance. We don't think so. All right. So that's a rule shot somebody Fifth Avenue like he said, he then go to Jim. I heard this. A lot of people's heads. Are exactly where yours is. So here's the answer. Would you be indicted? No, you would be impeached because that would be something. That's so heinous that even the Republicans who want to back the president right now would have to say avenue. Yeah. Would be would be I disagree. He would be. House. By the Senate thirds vote, then he could be indicted would remove at this point. I don't even think they would have to believe. We'll do what's Giuliani. Apparently. He's gone so road to the White House now needs a team of people doing damage control every time it gets a front of the camera and played a string of rats. Which started we see them a lot on your show. Credible said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign. I have not I said, president United States. There is not a single bit of evidence. The president states committed the only crime you hear conspired with the Russians to half the. And I know you because we worked together, I know you well, and I was like why don't know could meet. Everybody. I know who plays poker called me right away and said you gotta joy game. I need. Here. Here's the best defense. Okay. I was shocked. There is no there's no fake in my game. Obviously. So I don't know why he said that when the president spends time saying almost nothing as often as he says, no collusion with anybody. He started with no context, then there was a tone of context. So then it was no collusion right now. He says well wasn't me. And that means that like his family and everybody else he's like on the bus driving the bus and being like bumping, and it's all the bodies of the people working for him. But Julie did say, here's here's what I don't think. Giuliani's getting the benefit of with his critics. You're looking at them through the sunny lens of this guy is supposed to be a lawyer this guy in the southern district. This guy was America's mayor. As a PR agent. He is setting out. Yeah. Spreading doubt, the heating lawyer. Yes. But no, no, no, let's let's be honest. He's part of legal team. He's not the one to go sheeting with Muller. He's not one of the legal minds was figuring out. Right Radidy scenario. He's going out there. And he's betting with the president's backing that at the end of the day. This is going to come down to a poll, the irony, right? That do American people think this is so bad. What's been put out there that he should be removed from office by Republicans and Democrats, and the the strategy is clear and the execution is he with Giuliani trying to spread as much doubt about as many things as possible. Even if it means doing things that would make a lawyer blush. And that's very high boss is Magsi understand. He's not eating lawyer being a PR flat. Lawyer would never make a case of a potential and be quiet. He wouldn't discuss we should judge him differently. Means don't pay attention that it. That's exactly right. It explains. Why you should dismiss what he says as valid legal arguments. Just because he's a lawyer doesn't mean he's not Bs in you. I have held on the show the president's lawyer on what he says that even be very nine Celia legal point. They're not making more points pained red hill Roman Coliseum very, but. Anything?

I want my audience to know, this is who the president wants you to believe this is what the president wants you to believe eighty percent. And you try to test it eighty percent of Republicans believe it and still back the president. Yes. It's a fact. Yes, he's doing very well within his party. Very well. You're pretty good here.

Thanks for being with us. Newsmakers smart reporting taking you straight to the heart of the story starting here. Listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. Back with Chris Cuomo. Who's got a question by question. Why? White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hasn't held an official breast press briefings, December eighteenth, President Trump told her quote, not to bother with them anymore and in her defensive decision. She said this about your network yesterday. We're in the business of getting information to the American people not making stars out of people that want to become contributors on CNN. And that's a lot of times what we see take place in the briefing room. We're more than happy to take questions. But we think that there should be a certain level of decorum, and a certain level of honesty and responsibility that comes with that. I think she's throwing some shady McCoy. If I had to read the tea leaves on that how do you respond to that? I'm general the administration's Suttles a heart attack. And I'm sure that that clip left out the vigorous questioning by the people on the couch of her which is for an obvious Apocrypha. And obviously, I'm being facetious. They didn't say anything. That's why she goes on Fox News because she gets a pass administration favors that place because it's the mothership season. Kellyanne and Guiliani on because I believe in open dialogue of the president of the United States thinks that this person represents him. And this is his best that he has the offer the American people I want to expose that on my show, whoever it is. I had Sarah Sanders on I said to her you're gonna come on. We don't discuss questions I said, but you know, what my main interest is you keep saying you can't answer questions about what you knew and win because counsel won't let you that council. Doesn't represent you. You can say whatever you want wanting to tell the American people if you knew then what you know. Now, you would have given them a different answer she came on. And she parroted a dumb answer that she was given by other people in the administration. That's on her not on me, not me attacking Sarah Sanders, exposing the CNN because this Trump administration's been good for a lot of personalities tail. Timothy B first person I talked to I would represent in this. You don't think that there is a it for anchors to pine to know, the difference between journalists and opinion makers? I'm a commentator. I'm not a journalist. I think is important distinction. And I think it's one that's often. Blurred. I also think that you can't look at anything in the media as a model even CNN proud of the place where I work, but you can't judge everybody in the same way. You got to pick people see how they do their job. How she does her job how he does their job fine. But here's the line at the end of the day. No matter what business you're into. If you're in the business of communication with the American people, currencies integrity, and tell them the truth. And owning it when you get it wrong. Right. Pretty simple question. Hard to do for human beings. This administration. Lies more than anything. I have ever seen in public. And I was raised in politics. You know, so I have a very low bar for being truthful because I've been raised around polish. So I'm used to how it can be spun. I've never seen anything like this. Sarah Sanders has to own her own choice. Shouldn't he report is be able to call around on? I don't think they should want to be TV stars at the same time. I think they're amazing journalist, by the way of CNN, Jake tapper ESI van Jones, they're great people. Then there's people like Jim Acosta that made me want to change the channel Costa. And look he doesn't need me to defend them. He does well on his own but him testing power him demanding accountability from power is his job, not a popular job. And I knew I correct you Mukasa it was over when they when everyone their speech on. Today. No, my gym heights, honest. Pretty sour. Welcome to come on the show. And I thought that you you're called two sides Cuomo. I get the same criticism here. But what you do that. I like is you do call out hypocrisy on both sides when it's merited, and I want to get your take on the breaking story Friday because everyday to new story, but it was the BuzzFeed piece, right where everyone to name sources with speech. But it went wall to wall everywhere. And I made the point that I think at times media so obsessed with getting the president out of the White House member some people not everybody that actually helps the president's causing a further motivates his base and could potentially help him win twenty twenty one of your take on the I think that look the I don't I don't think the pe-. I don't think I think people deserve much more credit in this country than they get the idea that America is a bunch of sheep that they don't see it for what it is at the end of the day. The reason people don't trust or respect the media politicians because they are smart because they're sheep. They're able to see through a cell job. They're able to see through a gender. You know, the American people are very. Mart. You could put trust in them for this. How you every night though, the whole buzz. Okay. Reporting is hard the idea that anonymous sourcing somehow weaker sourcing is BS. Okay. You would not get people in power to tell you things if they thought they were going to be exposed it is a naphtha to self protection Phillips. Oh, what a gay storing? Well, okay, Brooklyn a lot of record. I can't tell you how much reporting I've done where it was basis of trust between me and somebody else that I would give them protection. And they would give me the truth or what I can get the closest obtainable version of the truth buzzfeed's article they have to answer for their own reporting. They stand by the mullahs probe comes out and says some of it is not accurate. It was a very careful statement that I would hold judgment until you see the whole store, and that's what I say. And I would hold judgment go to the bathroom you need to come back 'cause me. Tomorrow on the view. Oh, yeah. In the weekend starts early. 'cause Colin Quinn is let's able and yet ready for one show stopping Broadway performance to lure one of you. Chris cuomo. You just got a little beep. That's what we are reporting that the Senate intelligence committee has subpoenaed Michael Cohen that is not you know, it means under punishment. But that's just saying you have to come in. And they're hoping it will be in mid-february, they usually do their sessions in private, right? And that may give them confidence or this could be a reflection of how much credibility. They put Michael Cohen concern. So this is an ongoing thing because everybody here wants him everybody here everybody he wants them. Right. It's going to keep going on the house. I'd congressman Schiff right has not said subpoena. He said, we're working with the lawyers. We want him to come in great. So you caught some some doodoo this week because somebody tweeted once again, a another conspiracy theory having to do with Kamla Harris black candidate for president. And they were saying that she's not an American because her parents are immigrants. So you tweeted sing prove it and people thought you just camera. You want saying I'm Harris has to prove your same people should have to prove that stuff. Yeah. Before they and and is it me or when people come here legally, they become citizens. They have children their children are born here. They are citizens morning. Born in California the orb is over. Here's what happened. Nice and simple. Yeah. I screwed up. I wrote a tweet while I was doing my radio show prep for the radio. And I was just trying Ana Navarro who you guys all know head said here, we go again. And I was trying to get ahead of what I felt I contributed to a mistake. During the Obama birtherism stuff, which was we kind of let it devolve into where Obama had to prove. He was citizens and that gave dignity to a bigoted move that was never warranted. So this time I wanted to get ahead of it. And I wound up stepping right in it and mashing my foot around and kind of wiped it on my face a little bit. So that made angel's so. God forbid on Twitter. Anybody gives you the benefit of the doubt. I understand. Why people get mad at the media about being a Gotcha complex? It is the mistake is just assuming there's any collegiality or team spirit, and they'll go after me is easily. They'll go after US fine. The point is simple. You don't get to disparage people this way because of their race. That's right. Because you don't like what they represent and what I'm saying is before we go through this. Again, you have an accusation put up show, comma, Harris shouldn't have to go through this. That was my point. I made a question sutdown. What's what's going to happen? So today was supposed to be a big day. They was supposed to they was supposed to vote and have two bills. I don't think they're going to happen. I think that there is a perverse sense of satisfaction in people's pain going on with the president. He sees his party numbers. He's someone told them there. Mostly Democrats were feeling the pain. He's wrong and having people pay the price for not being able to deal. I think he should shut it down. And most people think you should shut it down. They have to figure out a better way. The making people be poisoned by their own. The come hang out more often. Okay. Let's just let's just say that we don't. Thanks occurs. So we'll primetime. Emmy, it's on CNN, and we'll be right back. Nice heading clapping. Thank you so much. Very proper. As you know, we are show that covers many different things about many ways, and with thrilled that you came to see us, and with that you watch the show, and we would like everyone everyone every well to have a great day and take time to enjoy the view.

Day 734: Trump accused of witness tampering as Cohen backs out of testifying
"Tonight. Michael Cohen back out of his live testimony over fears for his family, Donald Trump who's mentioned Collins father-in-law publicly is being accused tonight of witness tampering in plain sight, plus Muller front the documents. We saw today and what they say about Paul Manafort what he did. And did not remember, and it's turning the capital into a thunderdome. Trump versus Pelosi on a possible state of the union address during a government shutdown soon and during its thirty four th day as the eleventh hour gets underway here on Wednesday night. And it goes on good evening. Once again from our NBC news headquarters here in New York day, seven thirty four of this Trump administration, and as the government shutdown heads in today thirty four by the end of this hour, a senior officials telling NBC news the White House is preparing for this impasse. Get this to potentially continue for many more weeks. That is just ahead. We begin with longtime Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, suddenly pulling the plug on his upcoming live. Congressional hearing Cohen says he will not testify publicly on the seventh of February because of intimidation coming from the president Cohen's legal advisor. Lanny Davis issued a statement today that reads in part and we quote due to ongoing threats against his family from President Trump and Mr. Giuliani. This is a movie script as well. As Mr Collins continued cooperation with ongoing investigations. By advice of counsel. mR, Cohen's appearance will be postponed to a later date. This is a time where Mr. Cohen had to put his family and their safety. I last week on this network. Davis made a similar accusation. There's only one person in the country one president in our history that would threaten family as a tactic to make fear of somebody who calls a rat for telling the truth, and that's President Trump today. The president weighed in on this. I would say he's been threatened by the truth. He's only been threatened by the truth. And he doesn't want to do that probably for me or other of his slides. He has on the client's also I assume, and he doesn't want to tell the truth from me or other of his lines just to review here. Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, which he says occurred under Trump's direction he admitted to lying to congress about the Trump Tower negotiations, but in recent weeks, the president has suggested Cohen's family members be investigated. This message is from Saturday quote line to reduce his jail time. Watch father in law last month. Trump wrote this he Cohen makes up stories to get a great and already reduced deal for himself and get his wife and father in law who has the money question. Mark off scot-free. Remember, our friend, Scott free Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Also talked about Cohen's family during recent interviews in order to get to reduce he said, I have an idea. I'll tell give you some. Formation on the president. Well, there is no information. But he should give information maybe on his father in law because that's the one that people wanna look at because where does that money? That's the money in the family, and I guess he didn't wanna talk about his father late. So it's okay to go after the phone now now. Of course, it is. It's the father-in-law is a criminal law. We happen to know. And just go read the southern district report. The man was involved in criminal activity with Michael Cohen, and Michael Cohen is withholding. It. Congressman Elijah Cummings of the state of Maryland chairs the house oversight committee. He had called on Michael Cohen to testify back in December today, he didn't seem to be backing down. And this is something upset. Every single American. This is the United States of America. This is not Russia. We have not decided to exactly how we will proceed from here. But I guarantee you. This show is night becomes day in day becomes night. That we will hear from Mr. clock period. In the meantime, house oversight has opened up another inquiry. The committee is also looking into White House security clearances you remember those they're asking for information about how multiple current and former officials obtained said clearances big questionnaire how Jared Kushner managed to get access to certain classified documents before he was given his permanent clearance. And as we mentioned there is new information from Paul manafort's lawyers concerning special counsel Muller's allegation that the former Trump campaign chairman lied while cooperating with investigators today manafort's legal team submitted another heavily redacted document in an effort to knock down the Muller claim that they right that it quote does not support the conclusion that Mr. Manafort intentionally provided false information rather when placed in proper context much of the evidence presented by the office of special counsel. Merely demonstrates a lack of consistency in Mr. manafort's recollection of certain facts and events well written. Let's bring in our leadoff panel on a Wednesday night. Mimi Rocca, former assistant US attorney for the southern district of New York. Now, a distinguished fellow in criminal Justice at the pace University School of law. Jeremy bash former chief of staff at CI and the Pentagon and former counsel to the house Intel committee and Matt's appetizer ski national security reporter covering the Justice department for the Washington Post good evening to all of you. And welcome Mimi. I wanna play for you something we watched unfold on live television, four o'clock eastern time. This is Donny Deutsch known well to our viewers, but he's been drawn into this because of longtime personal friendship with Michael Cohen. Now, you might say in the news. We'll talk about this on the other side. I happen to be spending to Michael right after the pure interview. I'm not doing it. I'm not testifying. My wife is sitting here. Crying. That calling out Mike my poor father-in-law. He's eighty so this is a man who's never done anything because he's the president nited states. The Justice department report, he could do whatever he wants the president got on the air and tweeted publicly watch out father-in-law made me Rocca. This may not require exactly how much legal knowledge you already. Have. What are we watching in plain sight, we're watching witness intimidation or attempted witness intimidation in in real time? And frankly, we didn't need Michael Coen's reaction to prove that to us. I mean, anyone and you don't have to be a lawyer or former prosecutor who's watching Trump with any objectively in what he saying about Michael Cohen family concede that of course, he's trying to intimidate him. He's trying to make Cohen believe that if he goes ahead and testifies someone is going to come down on his father in law. Now, I don't know anything about the father in law. I don't know what he's done or not done. But. That's not the point the point is if I were prosecuting a mobster and some cooperating I had a cooperating witness who was going to testify against him, and that mobster went up to the cooperating witness and said to him, privately I'm going to tell them about what your father did already to be a member of your family right now. Right. Exactly. It could be more subtle. But Trump was pretty explicit. I would consider that witness tampering because that is suggesting it is saying I'm going to try to get the government to investigate your family member. Who I believe did something wrong in order to stop him from testifying that is what Trump did. And he's doing it with the weight of the presidency behind him dunning twitches point. There was xactly right? He's tech. Trump is technically the head of the department of Justice. He can technically and this is the president unbounded by norms direct investigations are they going? No, I'm not saying the father, should or shouldn't be looked at that's up to the prosecutors who are working on the case where we're trying to get Michael Cohen to cooperate. But no one should be looking at the father-in-law because Donald Trump says so and no one should be looking at him because he doesn't want Michael Cohen test to our control room. We had a graphic made of the federal statute that encompasses all of this. I think at air just prior to the Donny Deutsch interview this afternoon will effort. Getting that on the screen as I say to Jeremy bash reports from the control room are that you were nodding aggressively whiled counselor was speaking. Yeah. I think the president is unique as a as a witness intimidator in two respects, I as many pointed out he does oversee the executive branch. She oversees the arm of the government that conduct investigations of other family members. He also oversees the bureau of prisons who will set the conditions of Michael Cohen's imprisonment. I think Michael Cohen probably should be worried about any efforts to influence that that organization but second the president has a massive bully pulpit, not just on Twitter. But in all the ways that the president communicates, and he can inspire, and he can incite, and he can urge followers and other people who are inclined to his point of view perspective to do very tough things against the Michael Cohen family and make that testimony for Michael Cohen, very painful. But also wants Michael go. And goes away to prison. There's not there in effect to protect his family. I think he feels like his family, particularly his wife is father in law are very exposed. And Mimi as a former federal prosecutor, you can probably repeat along with us as we read the statute, which we have found we'll put on the screen who when folks at home here, I was talking about witness tampering tossing around the phrase. Here's the law, whoever knowingly uses intimidation threatens or attempts to do so with intent to influence delay or prevent the testimony of any person. That's not a terribly tough argument to make now, and particularly I know people are using the word threat. I I've you this is an intimidation type again, you're not going to just look at one statement by the president you have to look a whole course of conduct. I know we say that us prosecutors say that all the time, but it's true. And you have here it has been an ongoing attempt, and it can it doesn't matter. Ultimately, if it's successful. Even if Cohen went ahead and. Testified and said, you know, what a mock gonna let this scare me. I'm going to go testify, you can still technically charges under the statute. I think it's sort of evidence of how intimidating it's been that it seems to be having an effect on him. But I've already heard people saying, well, that's not really the only reason why cones not testifying really doesn't matter at the end of the day. I will say this at the end of the day for whatever investigations, and there's reporting the Cohen is still working with investigators both and especially tonight. Yep. And in the attorney general's office and in the southern district of New York. This is probably a good thing for those investigations. And none of those people involved in those investigations prosecutors would want Cohen testifying publicly. I'm not saying that is the re the reason why. But the result may be that you have some relieved feds right now, he meant thank you for your patience. There's kind of an unwritten rule in Washington that allies your comings is not a guy you wanna make angry who wins. In this. And what do you think is the next move here? Well, Elijah Cummings all but saying he plans to subpoena Michael Cohen, if he doesn't alternately agree to testify. My one of my colleagues talked to him today and asked at my request. Hey, what happens if he goes to prison? You know, he's set to report to prison on March sixth about a month after he had been supposed to testify incoming said, essentially, we'll go get him. We'll have the marshals go get him, and he'll still testify. I think there would be some new logistical hurdles to figure out what the bureau of prisons there. But he definitely wants to make this happen. We'll see if it can though I mean Cohen does not seem to want to do this. He has cited the threats. He's also cited I think very importantly, and sort of being missed in this the advice of his attorneys, you know, his last go round before congress didn't go. So well, he ended up getting charged and pleading guilty to lying to congress his testimony the most interest. Aspects to the public would probably be on ongoing investigations, the one in SDN y into campaign finance violations, and maybe the more important one that Muller is conducting into Russia and Trump connections. You know, I think there are a lot of reasons he wouldn't wanna testify, and he would have a lot of say in preventing that he could take the fifth amendment. Clearly this would his own wrongdoing would be at stake. He's going to prison. I think there are legitimate reasons that the committee might wanna back off, you know, this guys only got a month or so left before he goes to prison, but Elijah Cummings is intent on getting this guy before congress, and I wouldn't be completely surprised to see a subpoena at some point. Okay. Jeremy you're a veteran of Capitol Hill. What would be the problem if coming said, you know, what we're going to do this in closed session. It would kill the television ratings. It would reduce the theater of it. It would reduce the chance of grandstanding especially among people new to the congress people who want to stay. Take their claim on this hearing. What if it was under seal for a finite amount of time? Aren't there ways around this other than? Go to hell coverage on all the networks on live TV coverage. I think they could do portions of it behind closed doors in closed session, perhaps as an accommodation to the special counsel's office to explore areas, like the Trump Tower Moscow deal that we know are are under investigation active investigation by Bob Muller. But there are other areas that for the purposes of oversight you want in public because the oversight function is to increase transparency. And I think in some ways it would be a capitulation to the president's intimidation tactics to say, we're not going to do this in public. And by the way, I'm not sure that really saves Michael Cohen much of a headache. At all we still have the president United States making threats against his family, and that could won't go away. Brian if it's an open or closed session and a quick question. That people have asked me are you going to learn any more in the hearing room than all the conceivable questions the feds are going to come up with to ask this guy. Is there a chance that someone will come at it from an unusual angle and ask? That one key question that becomes the sound bite on broadcast like this one from my perspective. Absolutely. And more importantly, congress is an independent branch of government, and they have an oversight function and oversight role to understand the leverage that the Russian federation has over the president United States, and the Trump organization and its inter workings are key to that investigation that that may be part of what about mothers looking at. But it's not the entirety of Muller's looking at. That's a good point to make. However, hey, Matt, what did we learn or not learn in this document concerning Mr. Manafort today, the terror of the black lines? Well, we learned that Manafort is sort of resisting the notion that he intentionally loud allied to the special counsel. We kind of knew it, but this was manafort's occasion to publicly into the court respond to the allegation from the special counsel's office that he had continued to lie to their investigators after he pleaded guilty, and he sort of chalked it up all to memory issues. Special counsel, not presenting him with documents. So he could sort of refresh. His recollection him sort of changing his story midstream, but feeling like well that was okay. Because I wasn't lying. I just didn't remember, right. And then I did remember right in the middle of an interview. I was very disappointed though, that the redaction just made it impossible to learn anything substantively knew about what he lied about. I really hope that at some point the special counsel will make those allegations public. It feels sort of just inherently unfair to me to say, hey, this guy lied and not air it out, a special counsel has intimated that they sort of have lots of evidence testimony that points to him lying, but so far they've put it all behind black boxes and forced Manafort to put it all behind plaque boxes with the exception of few weeks ago when he sort of slipped up and put it behind transparent black boxes, I guess, I would say, but today we learned that he doesn't believe he intentionally lied. We unfortunately didn't learn much about the. Substance of those lies, which is the big question for us. We have really put you three guys to work tonight. But like so many nights at feels like breaking news. We have even more for our next segment, but our thanks to me Rocca, Jeremy bash to Matt's Petoskey. Thank you and coming up, the state of the union tonight is in flux as the White House prepares for a shutdown lasting weeks longer. Perhaps. Let's see how long people can go without an income. And later we go way back to win. The Trump administration held its very first official White House briefing. Remember those days we will when we come back on a Wednesday night. Well, we have a little animation because at eleven twelve pm tonight, the leader of the world's largest arsenal. And best fighting force was in the White House using his phone and did so again at eleven eighteen a dramatic reading follows as the shutdown was going on Nancy Pelosi asked me to give the state of the union address. I agreed. She then changed her mind because of the shutdown suggesting a later date. This is her prerogative. I will do the address when the shutdown is over. I am not looking for an alternative venue for the state of the union address because there is no venue that can compete with the history tradition and importance of the house chamber. I look forward to giving a great in quotes state of the union address in the near future. Donald J Trump from the White House tonight now to the business of the the process of this shutdown forgive the phrase. Is the Washington Post reports tonight? The White House is asking around to agency leaders for a list of programs that will be jeopardized. If the shutdown continues into say March and April the post points out, quote, it's the firmest evidence today that the White House is preparing for a lengthy funding lapse tomorrow, the US Senate year US Senate is expected to vote on two competing bills to reopen. The government here's the problem. One of them is Trump's plan. He announced on Saturday that would include the wall. The other is a short term Bill to get the government up and funded. Get people paid through February eighth. Both bills are expected to fail. Some house. Democrats say they're working on a deal that would offer more technology spending at the border and B C news reports this counter offer would quote meet or exceed five point seven billion dollars for border security asterisk, but no money for a physical wall. Democrats still hold the position that the government. Should I be reopened immediately before negotiations take place over border security at the same time? The counter offer signals some movement on Capitol Hill. Meanwhile, as the shutdown drags on. We got this stern message from the vice president of the national air traffic controllers association today, we cannot be in this any longer. It is already less safe than it was a month ago. When we shut down we have critical components to safety that are not there, we have processes not their training, not taking place distraction in the workplace. We have controllers actually reporting to us that they're making state mistakes when they are giving clearances clearing planes in places where they shouldn't be clearing them in conflict with other airplanes because they're so stressed out about how they are going to take care of their family. Their livelihood is threatened at this point some outlets were they? Had personnel shortages before the shutdown. Some controllers were working six days a week ten hour a day shifts and tonight unions for air, traffic, controllers pilots and flight attendants after all released a statement saying there is growing concern for safety in their industry due to the government shutdown. It reads in part, quote, if in our risk averse industry, we cannot even calculate the level of risk currently at play nor predict the point at which the entire system will break. It is unprecedented with us to talk about all of it. Jeremy Peters political reporter for the New York Times and Anita Kumar now White House correspondent and associate editor for politico, Anita it boggles the mind that we are about to with straight faces have a conversation about God forbid, a disaster or loss of life required as a triggering mechanism to get both sides to. Reopen our federal government after a month. I actually have been hearing that for the last few days that even people close to the White House or saying that they will not budge that the Democrats won't budget until there's an accident or some kind of security safety issue. Both sides aren't going to come to the table. But I think you you hinted here that there is going to be some movement. This house proposal that they're talking about. I think that's probably going to go somewhere. I mean, clearly the Senate bills that are coming up are not going to go somewhere. I think the house saying that they would look at spending some money not necessarily on a wall, but on enforcement issues is going to get some attention. Jeremy same question to you. And what just happened to the balance of power at least within the beltway in the past few minutes. The president has agreed something we've never had to state of the union that will await a reopen government. Right. I think Brian the ultimate impact of presents tweet. Just now saying he'll wait to give his state of the union is pretty minimal. I mean, it just kind of ads. The latest twist in this ongoing squabbling back and forth. Give your speech, Mr President, no way. You can't give your speech. Well, now, you can't go on your trip. I'm going to give the speech anyway. No, you're not I guess now. We're at okay, I won't get the speech. So I guess we'll wait to see whatever happens tomorrow, which at this point really could be anything. Although I have been hearing slightly more optimism that at least with the Senate votes, though, those are doomed to fail it appears that could provide some type of forward moving momentum here to get the gears of government at least somewhat grinding again and need a Jeremy just use the oh word for optimism. Are you hearing any of that being shared? Especially the subset of that question is Republican defections who's had enough. Yeah. I mean while I mean, it's been going on for quite some time. Right. So you think that they'd both sides would have enough. I mean every paycheck. I think that goes by that people aren't getting and messages like you heard before about safety. I think that it's going to get there. But. They're both sides are just really dug in on this. I mean, you mentioned the state of the union thing back and forth. I mean, this just shows you that they are not looking to compromise. They both have have their way and they want their way. So, you know, I just go back to this house proposal that's out there to me. That's the only glimmer of hope I don't know that I would say optimism though, because the president has been adamant that he still wants this wall. It's something he campaigned on he talked about and that he he thinks that it's necessary. And that that he wants to get the money for that. This is the time for him to try to do that. Germany. I have three visuals. And then a question visual number one is a letter by all the former secretaries of homeland security as cabinet agencies. Go it hasn't been around that long, but they all signed onto this letter saying in effect, and this it also includes the former. Homeland security secretary general Kelly who is the most recent White House chief of staff. Visual number two is some polling information, and it shows the president deeply underwater when people were asked the question by CBS news posters is this border wall worth the government shutdown. Seventy one percent say it is not worth it. Now, add to that the following visual. This is all the aircraft over the United States right now. See some of those routes that really pop like DFW up to New York the European flights leaving this time of night to begin their long arching flight over the North Atlantic and all the Pacific activity as well. That's what the skies over this country looked like and here's a prediction. They will all land safely tonight because of the true professionals the public servants working without pay in all the trae con stations all the local towers at all the airports in this country. But for how. Long. Jeremy and our first question comes back God forbid is this going to take a tragedy? I sure hope not. But I think what this speaks to more than anything else. Bryant is the degradation of our political culture, and the willingness that political leaders have to really subject government workers to this prolong period without pay but also just to show blatant disrespect for the government for the functions of our government that our constitution has set up, and it's really a change from this. When these things were rare, right or when politicians had more of a capacity for shame. When the Republican party dared not shut down the government for twenty years after the nineteen ninety five and nineteen Ninety-six shutdowns because they thought it was not only bad politics bad governance. That kind of shame doesn't exist anymore. Today's Republican party because what you've had over the last ten years or so is a party that is more and more hostile to government. They think that government doesn't do much good for them. When of course, there's plenty of evidence and money in their social security accounts and money paying for their Medicare to prove otherwise. But I just don't see a Republican party that exists anymore where shutdowns are perceived as bad politics. Even though the overwhelming majority of Americans don't like them, which the topic was more cheery. But I thank you nonetheless, both of you for coming on and adding your reporting to this segment to Jeremy Peters, two Anita. Kumar two of our returning veterans. Are thanks coming up more of the shutdown politics with two political veterans. Here's a hint both of them from the same state. Including a look at one component that could sway Trump his whole numbers. More on that when we come back. Protesters outside Mitch McConnell's office wanna get back to work. They would like to get paid for their work as well. There's been little public talk of an actual shutdown solution the house passed its tenth Bill date a reopen the government, but it doesn't include wall money and the swollen go anywhere over in the Senate leader McConnell blocked, a similar Bill in the Senate. Now, they're these bills that are both expected to fail. Tomorrow nothing like managing expectations and the longer the shutdown drags on the lower the president's approval rating, sinks, this may get his attention. This new AP NO RC poll shows his support dropped eight points since the shutdown started in December his disapproval ratings are now back to what they were after there were good people on both sides in Charlottesville here with us tonight apparently no-one available in forty nine other states. We have to Marylanders, and it's a good thing. We like them. Donny Edwards, a former democratic member of congress representing the state of did. I mention Maryland newly minted Washington Post columnist and Michael Steele, former chairman of the Republican National Committee and former Lieutenant governor from the state of wait for it Maryland. Thank you both for being with us. Michael the whole rap on Mitch McConnell is his ability to count noses. Any good leader? Any good whip in the house or Senate? That's what they do. They're like a western rancher counting ahead of cattle. But there's no way to get to sixty apparently on either vote without doing how a Bill becomes law, which none of us paid attention to when we were in school. Why bring them up? Well, they're bringing him up because probably trying to position for the back into this conversation, which is going to be around something that's beginning to form it in the house. I don't think this Bill that's going to close rather open. The government is going to emerge out of the Senate is going to emerge out of the house. And it's going to have I still believe at the end of the day. Brian is going to have elements that make it look like a wall. Make it sound like a wall. But it's not going to be a wall. Trump will be able to go and say, I got money for the wall. However, that's going to be framed in architecture for him to be able to do that. That's what the next phase as after these because Friday is day of reckoning as already been discussed a lot of folks for the second pay period. Now will go without a check. And if it wasn't real before it's going to get very real Mitch McConnell and a whole lot of. Members in the Senate. And so I think they they show motion with these with these bills that they're going to be voting on tomorrow. And then the heavy discussion begins down, a you, of course, serve with Nancy Pelosi in the house, and you of course, have a ton of federal workers in your former congressional district. How do you think the speaker of the house will know when it's time this can't be entirely one sided after all well now, and I mean the way I feel is that the speaker probably has a real sense of where her caucuses, and where the points of negotiation are, and I think that the move by the Senate to dispose of these two bills. Neither of which will get sixty votes needed to move them on begins to open the door and create a pathway by which there can be a resolution. The point is the resolution can't happen was building a wall. And we all know that I think that Democrats have always said that they? Can see a way to to doing fortified reinforcements of what already exists of making sure that there is increased border security, and technology and increasing immigration judges in all of those things that actually contribute to security, and I don't think any of that has changed and what needs to change is the president. And I think in some ways that can happen because he will see the failure of these two two bills coming up in the in the United States Senate, Michael this is not billiards, nor is it terrapin football. But at the risk of having something thrown at the television inside the White House was this advantage Pelosi today that she just went around. Oh, yes. Yes. She punked good. Yeah. Now, you just got some thrown at the TV. Yeah. Sorry. But yeah, she called his bluff he thought he was calling hers, but she called his and the president tonight recognized that probably the only place you get hold of speeches some alley in DC. So, you know, I'll just wait until after the shutdown Nancy Pelosi. I think to the congresswoman's point she knows her caucus. She knows where where she can go. How far out she can go. And there is no reason for her to move Bryant to just isn't the president at the very beginning of this thing back in December. Once he rejected the Senate Bill that he sent the vice president up to say, yes, I'm behind it. Now, go for it said to Chuck Schumer and ANSI Pelosi. I take full responsibility for this. I all this. And I won't blame you and this is like, okay. And here we are. Yeah. He said used the word mantle gimme the mantle of this. The mantle wonder how that mantle feels right about now. Hey, I got one for you. This is from our friend. Peter Baker over at the New York Times Democrats accused Mr. Trump hostage-taking tactics, but among the hostages has been his own presidency other than his single minded pursuit of a border wall. Mr. Trump has all but. Put on hold advancing the rest of his agenda. It has become as one administration official put it a one issue White House, though, Donahue, and I both know this speech if history is any guide, and who knows that this point will contain words like infrastructure. Remember that word. Yeah. I remember it. I don't think the president doesn't mean here's the thing. The president backed himself into a wall. He was always going to lose this fight. And now the question is just how does he lose or how to Republicans allow him to save face to to move on? You know, the fact is he wanted to do a state of the union message. But you can't stand in front of the entire United States and proclaimed Americans at the state of the union is good when the government is shut down. And when it's not functioning and he is the head of that dysfunction. So I think that right now the most that the president can count on is that he's worked himself into full on into an election cycle now. And I just don't know where this administration goes up from here. I want to go where angels dare and that is to talk about twenty twenty for just a moment. You may not recognize this fellow you might find his name difficult to pronounce, but he would like very much to be your next president the latest democrat to join a very crowded field. Take a look. I believe that we need new voices. It's time for a new generation to step forward to offer leadership at the end of the day. I have more years of government experience than the president of the United States. I have more executive experience than the vice president, and I have more military experience than the two of them put together the group of twenty twenty candidates gained one more today. That was the thirty seven year old mayor of the great city of south bend, Indiana. He joined seven other declared candidates, including Senator comma Harris who also announced this week. She sat down with Rachel in this very studio tonight sock about why she is right for the job. We are a country that has always been aspirin. We have these ideals. We were founded on these ideals are strengths that we fight for these ideals, and our strength is also that we speak truth and acknowledged we've never quite reached those ideals. We still have a whole lot of problems around issues of equality and freedom and fairness, right, but people are prepared to fight, and I'm prepared to join that fight and if necessary, and if if folks will have me, I'm prepared to help lead that fight. Okay. Mr Chairman, here's the here's the question. I'd like to ask and Donna I'm coming to you right after this. So have a brilliant answer ready, which democrat as of now poses the greatest threat to Donald Trump. Joe Biden, why what because I think Joe Biden is the one who takes away from Trump without having to go where Trump will take all the rest of these candidates where he took Marco Rubio in the in the two thousand sixteen cycle the he can avoid that he is blue collar. He's always been blue-collar. He's authentically such. And so when you're looking at the Wisconsin's and the Ohio and the Pennsylvania's and and the Michigans of the world he will resonate with them uncle Joe. He's called that for reason. Yes, there have been gaffes. And there have been the crazy stuff. But compared to Trump people like, okay, that's a walk in the park. We can do. But what about comma Harris presents as a person who's going to be rolled presumably by Donald Trump? Well, you know, I don't know you asked me based on what I know. I have any what Comal and others are going to do Joe is been there. He's done the raise. He's got the connection. He's got the ground game. He knows he knows the opponent. We'll see as he's other candidates come on how they develop that. I'll tell you though, the person who's impressed me the most of those who have been announced has been Elizabeth Warren because she's come out. She's laid out very, you know, where she's going. You know, what his fight for commerce? She's gonna fight fighting for what are you going to do on taxes? What are you going to do on health care? How much is that progressive part of the base that Lisbeth Warren really represents pulls a comma Harris from California or a mayor Pete, you know. You know from Indiana into that space that's going to be interesting to watch. Joe I think has has a leg up right now. Congress res note, the former Lieutenant governor Maryland just took a pass on the last name of the mayor of south bend as booty juice disc-. We're going to get into trouble here. So did I full disclosure now congresswoman you've had the advantage of two entire minutes of listening to the former chairman as the Republican party. What is your answer to the question who poses the greatest threat to Donald Trump? Well, as so here's the thing. I don't actually know that yet. And I'll tell you why I think it's the candidate who gets through this field and demonstrates they're able to take a punch and get back up. And I think for some of these candidates are kind of untested, and I would put calmly Harrison that category as well. In terms of running a I mean. I mean, really tough race for the for the Senate that didn't happen. I think some of these other candidates are going to have to prove that they can take that. And then they can get up. I think Joe Biden, obviously has done that. I think Elizabeth Warren has done that as well. But I'm not saying that they can't. And that's why I'm actually looking forward to even though it is a crowded feel looking forward to it. Because I think it's really going to be important for Democrats not to just anoint. Next nominee for our party. But somebody who really is going to be the standard bearer for the brought for the breath of our party. And I think the only way that you can get through that is through a tough hard fought primary. That's gonna put you in the right position to fight it out for for the presidency. We ask a lot of them, but congresswoman Edwards, and Mr Chairman Steele, keep coming back, and we're very fortunate to have them. It's not like Maryland is underrepresented on television these days. Thank you both appreciating coming up those of us who are old enough to remember White House press briefings get downright wistful for a time when our government communicated with the people directly on a daily basis are wistful look back when we come back. I didn't know that was coming forgive the photo from the Calvin Coolidge administration. This is the portion of our broadcast where we do the remembering. So you don't have to among all the digression from normal that we chronicle here each night. One of them is the death of the White House daily press briefing. It's not even really a monthly briefing anymore. Sarah Huckabee Sanders was last behind the podium on December eighteenth thirty six days ago. That's before the shutdown. In fact, she's only held up briefing five times since Labor Day by our count. There were only sixty one press briefings in all of twenty eighteen which by our count contained three hundred sixty five days more often than not the press secretary or her deputies have to be questioned in the driveway. It's like wild kingdom out there. Sometimes it's dark often they're on the run. And this is where we like to. To insert our regular reminder. They work for your government. The money you pay out in taxes puts food on their tables. So we decided to dig deep into our video archives back to a simpler time long ago. Twenty seventeen the first official press briefing by the brand new press secretary, not counting his rant about the crowd size at the inauguration here once again, Sean Spicer. Good afternoon everyone. Thanks for coming out to our first official briefing here in the eighty room, as you know, we are all about big viewer ships in large audiences here US Vice thing those the most watched inaugural address sherve, it was the most watched inaugural when you look at. It was the largest watched inauguration ever, do you dispute that? Well, I don't wanna get into two numbers. I do I think sometimes we can disagree with the facts we hit the ground running on day one on Wednesday. The president will host a swearing in ceremony from inland from income from new secretary of homeland security General James Kelly, John Kelly, the president's very successful businessmen and negotiator. He's going to sit down and work with congress to get the best deal possible. But he understands better than anybody had negotiate a great deal keeps getting told what he can't do by this narrative that's out there any exceeds it every single time. We're here today. I'm going to stay here as long as you want. So I wanna make sure that. Again, the last full blown press briefing December eighteenth of this past year, eight months after what you just watched Sean Spicer was gone and one more personal update Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director last week landed the coveted slot on the cast of celebrity big brother, he vowed to survive in that role longer than the eleven days. He was Trump's communications guy. But tonight, he is out out of the big brother house under mysterious circumstances. Coming up what this soon to be thirty four day long government shutdown is doing to our country and the people who work for it or try to every day. Last thing before we go here tonight. If you've been watching, you know all week, we're trying to keep the stories of our fellow citizens front and center, the citizens we refer to as federal employees who've now gone over a month without pay this week Larra. Trump wife of Eric Trump was asked about the human toll of this shutdown and her answer is getting a lot of attention. It's not fair to you. And we all get that. But this is so much bigger than anyone person. It is a little bit of pain, but it's going to be for the future of our country. Now about those citizens being asked to endure a little bit of pain and go without money for food. You name it rent child-care mortgage car payments, chemo utilities college loans. All of it. We begin tonight with a couple who went to that protest at Mitch McConnell. Senate field office in Kentucky. You're going to hear stories across the nation from federal workers who are having to choose between their medications whether to keep their lights on whether they can pay their car note or buy groceries for their family. This is dire. Emergency we've been held hostage. The federal employees put us back to work and continue the negotiations be myself have handicapped I had to get a lot of medicine. I'm not able to afford the co pays right now because I have no money. Kevin. I have no money. I don't know what I'm gonna do. If this keeps on it's very three days. We need we need to be working. So we could be having our money back. I'm just trying to survive on what I have. I have my husband little dove, the whole wound is gonna be a kid's this kid's zoo. I can't have my Toya whatever, and I'm gonna to attention. Just feed. What situation how about that that last gentleman works for homeland security three federal workers are fellow citizens being forced to go without us. This shutdown goes on with that that is our broadcast on a Wednesday night. Thank you. So very much for being here with us. Good night from NBC news headquarters in New York. Hey, it's Chris Hayes from MSNBC every day. I come to the office, and we make television show and every day. I think to myself there's so much more. I want to talk about and so this is our podcast. It's called why is this happening and the whole idea behind it is to get to the root of the things that we see Lee out every day. They're driven by big ideas. Each week. I sit down with a person uniquely suited to explain why this is happening. New episodes of wise this happening every Tuesday. Listen for free wherever you get your podcasts.

Patrick I'm sorry is jumping in now. I think he's GonNa cut into some of those votes are all of these. People are cutting him Blooberg Bloomberg like Rye this this year. The the center is so thirsty for a centrist to rise. That is not Joe Biden. I think they're tired of Joe Biden. Pete's it's really surgeon and like he hasn't really surged that the crazy thing is everything that we see we go. What did he say but like the people who are inside inside the even crazier ranks Ryan? They know the indepth off the writers history so if they're like Yo even Hillary's like in many many people are telling me to running first of all nobody said that but but it's like they just know that it's GonNa get bad if he's he's the nominee yell. Yeah Oh yeah that means just to see the parade of people being like maybe Herman Cain is like trying to be happy Desmond Tutu like people coming out of woodworks in Houston this movie. He wants on the diamond in in South Carolina. Moment is wide open. There's no horse race. Yeah what is a myth. What's something people think is true? You know to be false. Two things begins get a harder time than they should. Because I I'm seeing someone who's Vegan and like my attitude has been dote the past couple of days late eight eating. Just try to eat Buffalo cauliflower once instead flowing booth might inches it. Won't it won't eat. Knows like sage like it won't magically make you better but it might kick out some the negative energy. They should have just try. Try to go Vegan for a day. Yeah see you know sorry to the milk. People's are you know to the cows eat mor chikin whatever but but like just try. Try to try to try.

Oh man we had a baby Dan. We gotta get milk now too easy for too long before for jobs. Yeah I've heard people Starting to like do veganism during the week and then treat themselves on the weekends. That's they did a good strategy. Give that a shot vegan. All right. Yeah that's the new weekend. He's rebooting them so well. Let's talk about impeachment. Oh impeach this creep get impeached. I mean I think they got in the house right. It's dicey man. Even I like the with the impeachment. I could see not happening happening and him trying to buoy that into see the impress Saturday though but I think what's really crazy is taxes. I think bastard thing his hair he appeal to please. Don't show there may Texas so please please change their minds is just gonNA find out. I never paid any. Oh I think I think depending on which happens firs him nagging impeach Canana Texas are released. If Tex release I am not getting peach. I think that's bad but if he gives not impeached and then the Texas drought right the thing with the taxes. This is like you know. I think a lot of people think because he's losing those cases just means like all right go to trump's taxes dot org to the PDF really sabih for investigators to see even so if they bring charges based on that. We'll get to see but it's still like another. We have so many things down the road to think about but but I think with impeachment were seeing that at the very least the Republicans man are are rising but they are doing doing this thing where like they just ask so many questions that even. I'm like getting tired of it like I'm like yeah I get because at this point we get it man. Yeah we're GONNA have a good one Call Them Fred durst. Because that's some bad faith for man. Yeah thanks so we end this. I mean this is the end of the daily Zeitgeist Soda so close For filming the movie that is the thing that jumps out of me. Is that during the Watergate inquiry quarry like people were like Oh the Republicans are actually leading this be a trial like their live. They're actually leading people and they're asking questions that suggest they don't don't have their mind made up there trying to find out the answer why we're still very dominant back then me talent. The tank is full because everyone now is responding like fuck man here. We got little bits and threats to hold onto right so it seems like the Calculus is different. They're like yeah they're off balance. We're still we're still on baby cume. Yesterday I was reading the news Clinton chimed in First of all Hillary the the the first the engine for his man he was chiming in and I will rest in peace to the victims of the shooting in Cigars high school but he was talking about that on CNN but then he added advice to trump on how to handle this. Did you see this. He's like you need to be more presidential. And that's what his people people are telling him to do. So Bill Clinton and trump's advisors kinda agree on how should be handling all this crazy impeachment stuff and on what airlines to fly. I know what Hash running for President Agai- Epstein really did commit suicide rates going over notes. The crazy boy. We've we've been there so I mean the last witness that we had was Marie Ivanovich the ambassador to Ukraine who he was like basically intimating that he was gonna put a hit on basically he was like things. He's going to go through some things so she talked about that. Actually reading the transcript for the first time and somebody was like Whoa the whole all the blood drained from your face like she was so terrified. She's talking about how terrified she was by the president's threat and he starts tweeting. Luring you heard testimony talking shit at her. During her testimony it was the first like real time witness tampering. I don't think we've ever had that because usually like somebody. But he can't tweet and everybody knows it at the same time but like this was as she was testifying she was getting threatened by the most powerful man in the world. Like Shit talked talked about by the most powerful man in the world that is like straight up witness tampering. Not Everybody's still like persevere man that's the strength from Bill Taylor especially in Ivanovich. They yeah they don't give a fuck but also they have so much strength within them there they can look dead they they can look these republicans dead in their eyes and no matter. What's bullshit they're trying to like dress up in their questions? They just speak directly to the heart of the matter and they're unfazed so that's by looks even worse Muller would get frazzled at times like we'll win what paragraph. I didn't give a fuck. You didn't he was like this isn't my thing like you guys hire me like I'm here to like I wrote a rope. If you're not gonna read it that telling you gotta go right. Yeah whereas they are like no this is a fucking problem trying to ask these disingenuous questions that are trying make to oversimplify things. Yeah they volunteer and Shit like damn we know that right. So then so trump tweets this during her testimony everywhere. Maria Lana Mitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia. How did that go then? Fast forward to Ukraine where the new Ukrainian president spoke unfavourably about her in my second phone call with him it is a US president absolute right to appoint a bachelors. Okay I know what any of that means. Absolute right okay. The interesting part to his absolute power. When he says the president spoke unfavourably? There's a transcript. Resiliency goes thank you so much for being the first person to tell me to look out for you von which. It's like my call now. Where's that fucking call? So it's funny because even these other transcripts the White House releases it has information like we hold the wait. What so? There's another call. Where's that has there been like a cause I keep looking albion's I didn't read the whole transcript? Yeah and I wasn't the best high school student it only like. Is there a thing that people can point to yet. That's emerged as like this is. This is the most damning thing with with the with the Transcripts so far or with the impeachment so far I mean the transcript is pretty damning because clear that he's asking him to you know he's basically intimating. Yeah it's practice extortion. And then he's extorting Zelen them. We have all these people who have no like they. Are you know career. They just want a Mary. What's best for America's you know international interests I'm just saying that you know he was doing the worst possible reading of that. Transcript so you have like all this all these witnesses you even have the person. The phone phone call is pretty damning that we just found out about them on a last we at where somebody overheard him asking resignation investigate investigate. What's the president? He's only focused on these investigations. Like verbatim I mean yes you have getting biter yeah. It's clear that the aid was held up. It's clear why the aid was held up based on all the people who are testifying as to what the explanations were which is sort of like you'll lean on them to get them to announce an investigation and they get their aid and they'll get their visit because a and this is again what they need to underline. The visit is very important to presidents alinsky because as a new president when you get that photo photo op you flick it up. One time with the president then that communicates to the rest of the world. Okay talk with them their their their their allies now and then on top up of that when you hold up he's like Oh you want your little precious of fucking javelin missiles to fight off Russian tanks you know then now you're fucking with their safety and being like oh you want these okay. Well this is what you need to do. And then the thing is it's not like he's just saying okay. We'll give the aid if you do the research research. He's basically saying find something not not. Just look it up. Look it up minecraft in that I can use. They know they can read his intent but really he just wanted of. He wanted a video clip of the president saying yes. We are investigating the Biden's no literally. They said they wanted him to go on. CNN A had the outlet in mind there were so you're going on CNN to say this yes yes and that's what you're GONNA do. So the Democrats kind of gradually angelique changing how their messaging this from quid pro quo which was a republican term in the first place to bribery. What miles you? You have the political background. I need you to explain this to me. Why are they not saying? He's trying to cheat at the two thousand twenty election the election. That's happening that people like even the people who are like Yo like let's let's not impeach him the reason they're saying that is because let's just decided on the twentieth Alexei needed actual charge. They can they can defy not concrete enough yet it's too nebulous. I think to say that. That's what it obviously. That's the intent but there's because what see that's why they're using the Latin the quid pro quo. Because in Levi's favorite can say this is a legal term. We're this is a defined act that we can say it's very it's not they they can say straight up what it is right and I think that's I think there are a little too hung up on being rigid about well. It's it's it's this thing. Let's be very narrow Israel because when we try to do all the obstruction in Russia and other shit got to just yeah that they couldn't actually like really get it focused. It said same shit with like like the both sides the journalism and stuff where it's just like they had I feel like people are holding themselves to these technicalities and just talk to people like intelligent people be like Yo. This is what it is. You know this is what it is. But it's it's easier to just say. This dude is abusing the fuck out of his power bottom line whether the election or not you can. Ah obviously you can argue. What the intent of that is because that's already what they're doing is being like what's actually not because the election? It's because even the this and this is where I think this is why because they say even. During during the Obama Administration there were there were concerns raised over the fact that Hunter Biden was working. At berea is is is like you said like it's a it's an intentional uh-huh usage of terms in redefining. What the term means right like that's been kind of strategy like it's not a witch hunt when we know who the witches right? We know. We're not hunting for which I know. He keeps tweet at him. We know exactly where the witches right. It's it's not it's not a quid. Pro Quo like trying to defined find the defined what the term is as. Because it's a term that you can you can beat you know what I mean right. Yeah and I think he's fixed rate or just make the make. Make It really clear on how this abuse of power is too. Because I think if you're I mean like everyone's so partisan now like I don't think it really matters if you have like a really clear way to or a metaphor or anything but it's like if a police officer had a gun you can use that gun correctly right to defend yourself more you CA- rob somebody you for their cell phone right and then it's like we'll see now right you like that's your right to use the gun as a police difference right. One is actually in service of the community. If we I mean I think it's a bad analogy. But anyway and the other is to purely their own personal benefit semantics. Yeah and I think that's where you know. We'll we'll see because I think if they can get one one good like if they can get a Mulvaney or Bolton up there then it'll be it'll help sliding off the I think really what what's interesting though to me. Is that the even in the Senate. They don't have the votes to outright. Just dismiss this. As soon as he gets there so I think that's where obviously there's a growing number of people in the electorate that believe leave. This is terrible and that's slowly I think translating the pressure into the Senate. But you know it. It's got to be a problem because they they keep trying to paint. It is boring and I'm not gonNA watch it but they'll comment on it. I'm not watching that right also. Party party stupid actually. Didn't WANNA go anyway. Do you see what they doing. The next day serving that was legit Fox. News was just like this so boring and lame and like nobody's GonNa pay attention. It's not sexy. Well because when win the facts are fucking you you gotta be like. We have but it ain't like hot fun hot spit a no video the right thing so and this is the point though. So after trump straight up witness tampers in real time or intimidates in real time Adam Schiff was like whoa. WHOA WHOA just the pre? This is some wild shit. Yeah and essentially saying that this could be interpreted as some form of intimidation tactic and then when Fox during their air break in the testimony they had to talk about it. This is the fucking defense of trump tweeting at this witness in real time was now something else that was said by Adam. I'm shifting the chair of the Intelligence Committee. He indicated that this might be an attempt to intimidate the witness now when we look at the Constitution and we looked at article two section four. It doesn't say anything about a witness. Intimidation talks about high crimes and misdemeanors bribery. which is a theme? We've heard a lot about here but you could see. Potentially the Democrats could use that moment to try to tie into an article of Impeachment Democrat. And you see this is why to you. See How narrowly early even they talk about it on the right right. It's almost like okay. So if this is the vocabulary we're going to restrict ourselves to then I'm GonNa put you in a box where you can't be like well You know Witness tampering in their bribery. Is I think it's a mistake to let the right kind of set the terms and like they I I think they need to get get at the. He's trying to cheat at the twenty twenty election because I think that is the thing. That's different about this but I guess who do you think that would compel. It's just it's the truth about the overall terms that I keep seeing everybody get lost in like little You're saying is like the fucking in quid pro quo versus like bribery versus legislation extortion versus witness tampering. And it's just like overall this is what this is doing and you guys is are just losing the force for the trees. I feel like he's I think the the Democrats in the actual Trial or the the hearings are actually doing that the Republican publicly the PR war is what they're trying to win. Because I don't think a win in court right elax. Pr Our part right. Just like yeah like well people it up. An impeachment is boring. It is boring especially. If you're losing so we'll let's just make it as flowery twitter on social media so people. This is public outcry against I mean I just think if you really extend this thing thing out it becomes about so much like if you really take the time to like mine every thread that they're finding it's gonNA show so it's a much much bigger picture like we're looking at a fucking 's it ran like an elephants ass over looking at and we're like -ocial zoom out right. Actually this whole other fuck. Yeah getting really caught on that because I think ultimately right we talked about this in the beginning is that if the you know if the Ukrainians go at the table with the Russians and you know seed part of Crimea at least a like the politically to Russia and there's no more conflict I guess on paper that means no more sanctions ancient against Russia. Right if they can. If they can say that the Ukrainians meddled in two thousand sixteen elections that means no more sanctions for Russia for meddling in the election in straight. So there's this other element to that like these little micro movements also reverberated much larger ways down the road and when you also see that I don't know if it's GonNa come up about how the president did this would the last Ukrainian president about being like Yo You want these javelins brain. Something right like this happened before he goes about his business. Yes I would do I have on you what do you need. How can I use that to get out? And I think it's I think. The Republicans are getting off easy easy by just thinking that the motives are just a smear. Joe Biden Right. I think that's where it's like. Oh Yeah Yeah. This thing is being by a much different different motor but I guess right now in the how narrow it is and I and I don't know I mean that could be because the muller report wasn't as sexy as they thought tile this shit to Russia right they're just like fuck it just like let's just like scared and everybody's you know just. His tactics workman like the the media's he is just yeah they're they're kind of leading them define the terms. It's frustrating to me but we're GONNA take a quick break. We'll be right back this just in. It's officially fall. And that means a lot of things to a lot of people. The leaves are changing colored. Time to break out. The pumpkins breakout the football and most importantly break out. The truly hard seltzer truly has only one hundred calories but as five percent. ABC and only one gram of sugar per container. It's the can't miss drink of the season. Don't take my word for it. Truly hard seltzer today. Truly drink what you truly want. And we're back and the other biggest story. That's another reason that I think they should talk about that. The re the the other big story is the two thousand twenty election that thing talking about the the fact that the impeachment is about the twenty election. The you know. There's a reason twenty twenty elections such a big story fucking matters and so narrowing it to Just Mr Pete. Budaj Edge The the centrist. The Great. Quite tope for Centrists centrists who just are desperate for somebody besides biden sent out an email last week about his support from HCC US right. Yeah then. We'll you know it's this is a clipping right. They say in it. HVAC you times for historically black colleges and universities again to zoom zoom out of it people who just has a really big problem with getting support from black voters right. Yeah because of his time as mayor and just relative inaction action or just firing his. There's there's a lot of things going around that for black voters are like I'm not sure about this person. Yeah absolutely I mean this is where step in well actually I went to. ABC You and Charlotte Morehouse College in Atlanta and Yeah I mean in Indiana has a problem with black people. You know what I mean like grown up in Chicago. It was just like I've I've gotten pulled over. Maybe like long distances. Three three times always in Indiana. They have a problem with it but and I don't know anything do is like active and it's still like very popular So I don't I don't know I don't know what Buddha judge has what plan he has well. He has not not released. The Douglas Plan that was about reinvesting in communities of color and things like that about trying to create some of increased equity And most people that just sort of came and went because most people really aren't taking him seriously when it comes to things like that and there's HVAC's in Indiana so we'll how would you even know. General I'm just asking for President so this headline in this in this email says more than so from the ABC you times more than four hundred South Carolinians endorsed mayor. P Buddhists as Douglas Plan for Black America says by Columbia City Council member to make divine South Carolina Democratic Party Black Black Caucus chair Johnny Cordeiro And a pastor and state representative ivory thigpen. And okay. That's that's there you you were like okay. That's interesting. There's no support there. The intercept started digging in a little bit and found that two of those three people I just named said they never supported the plant. That is wild so this is from ivory thigpen. Even though I had had conversations with the Buddhists campaign it was clear to me or at least I thought I made clear to them that I was a strong Bernie Sanders supporter. Actually co-chair of the state and I was not seeking to endorse their candidate or the plan. But what I had talked about was potentially giving them a quote of support in continuing the conversation because I do think it's a very important conversation. The next person Johnny Cordeiro. I never endorse that plan. I don't know how my name got on there. No that's not true. I know how my name got on there before before explaining that Buddha judge had emailed him the plan and asked for feedback which began a conversation with Buddha judges staff quote. This is from Johnny Cordeiro I had some difficulties with the long and the short of it was. They never sufficiently answered my questions so I never actually endorsed plant. Also they also when they looked around of the people they could identify from from this four hundred four hundred South Carolinians at endorsed. It forty percent of those people were white So it seems like they were trying to be a little tricky. Tricky and associates South Carolinians with black voters and then when they looked when the intercept Ashgabat like these people were saying that they did. They don't support it they like. Oh well we sent an email which is basically like opt out email. No saying like this is about to print. If you wanted like retract your support please let us know in this email so you can opt out. Like a unsubscribe exactly or or or your free trial has ended and we will begin with two hundred dollars living quote. I never heard of that. I don't know how they got. That information actually is not true. God I want to see the Saying somebody saying hey wait I know how to do we own this is about that. Yeah okay they started email conversation with me getting my opinion on right and that turned into an endorsement. So I think a lot of people are just starting to be like that's a little disingenuous there But you know politics politics. It's just this this. This is so dirty to just blatantly lie. Have the story get out there. And by the time the correction gets out. It's already more. Yeah it's the old story now. Email was actually sent on October. Twenty fifth. Oh yeah there's five years ago this like last week they they kind of went through and be like hold hold on the two of these three people you're naming as your top line endorsers are like I never said that. He's leading in Iowa right. which with shocked the shit out of me? Yeah I think I assume they're still very malleable. Like there aren't as many people who are dead set like there are a lot of people were heard the people who does not know right. I think you just wait. You want to see if you're being completely holistic you want to be like what's every person's plans. I can put them mall on the table right and then go through them like that. If you're being very very thorough I also think alphabetically Budaj is first right so they reminded Biden and as far as like. Now he's crazy. Yeah the next name. It'll be Biden's Bloomberg Buddha jets. Yeah Yeah I don't even think Bloomberg like Bloomberg missed some deadlines already. Yeah devolves Miss. Some of these missed a few. I think he's more focused on Iowa New Hampshire But they have said that That's a big plus for a candidate being listed first on the ballot that's why they randomized because because that's not fair but blandly. This is the thing that we said. This Bloomberg was talking about getting in the race him entering the race. Pull support away from the Buddha Judges Biden's Patrick's of of the world who's his base Bloomberg for Bloomberg billionaire Li number. Yeah the media apparatus based on what I saw when on. MSNBC when he announced their mouths out loud or like he could be the unifier. I was like okay all right. All Right General Electric I I feel like a like the Republicans who are going to vote against trump like the never trumpers will probably go Bloomberg. It's still familiar. World in which the oligarch class of this country isn't in the crosshairs of political reforms who had the quote about Socialism never took off. Because most people think they're just billionaires who's gone through a down period African quote just like inches like I'm just going through a rough time to ask it never never know man. Yup you're down you're up you're down so Yeah people are just you know. It's just optimism to to to go with perceives. Knock anybody for having their candidates. I know like a lot of the tone of P- especially during primaries if people were like why coming after my candidate you free to whoever the back wherever the fuck you want at the end of the day You know I implore you to really look at what the what the reverberations are of some of these policies. And in the same way I look at people who support candidates I don't quite understand. What is it that that makes you feel good about this person? And it's not even that I and I think a lot of people apply this whole shit of being like. Oh you don't fuck with my favorite band not and it's really like Yo. This is not. It's not like I know. People do take it like that on uh either way coming after people or defending their candidates but at the end of the day I just the thing we have to focus on is fucking turning up to the polls as survey and I do know that Yes for some people they look at some of these candidates and Dave have a very specific worldview future of the country that they wanna see play out in real time. I'm your and that's that's what that enthusiast fight each other the damaging the most damaging. I think come out of the Texas is people finding out. He's not as rich as yeah. Well Yeah Yeah Yeah that amongst anything else where he invested in Russia you know you can find it all that away but if donald trump was really worth legs seventy five thousand dollars take fucking torpedo. He's one of us is exactly right. I hate us. I mean based on the fact that he had scotch tape as a tie clip and that one might be worth seventy five he might have to ties total only seen to get one without the stains meeting reverse. Yeah I mean to me dip my gracie asked I said my shed was looking young connects that Russia was looking young. Man All right. Let's talk about Roger Stone. Real quick. The ridler Ridler was found guilty on all seven counts he was facing including obstruction. Lying to Congress witness intimidation. I know it's been a while I was going to kill you critical. Whatever yeah fucking die? I think he yeah. He's prepared to die. He also told him to pull a like named Godfather character. Who changed his testimony under threat of death and then he was just like oh no I was just telling me to impression? 'cause he does good impressions and that it happened was I was just Yap. He he fucked up he he basically it seems like he convinced himself. If they're like he was just doing a bit and reality was like going along with his bit or something because there is just like he's not walking around like the Truman show. Yeah it was just like He. He just lost touch with reality but he just seemed like he just kept. Yeah he was so I mean it started when he was witness tampering. Doing all this shit he was arrested was forced to apologize for instagram. In a threatening photo urging his followers to murder the judge Ah Jin his case crosshairs on her forehead right. Yeah there was. This movie has out to t shirts. I feel like this is just like a boomer who was not able to deal with the Internet like he was just like well that was just funny to him. It's the also these people grew up in a time where they were getting away they would this shit forever so there was no reason for them to think the outcome would ever be different. Well like he's always doing stunt. So this is the dude by the way was Richard. Nixon tattooed the back is is it like now. It's just like a mini hatch. Not Many it's not like Steve O's back down like it would be like something that would cover like a whole pictorial on one side of his backing. Alex piquet eaten he. He's the reason he he's not faultless. In this man normalized realized Nixon eighties. So during jury selection random guy moaned loudly and collapsed on the floor. which I mean? They didn't say it was like somebody who riders stone like placed there. But I mean it just seemed and then soon after Roger Stone left early claiming he had food food poisoning and then the biggest deal that his lawyers made was about like not showing godfather in the courtroom because because it would taint people into thinking that he was like trying to be a mafiose and threat. But they're like it's relevant because he's referring to the character actor of Frank Penn tangibly the two. Yeah today is like this is what that means. Yeah you know what I mean. Yeah it's mcnabb pointed out that like the Godfather is what people were afraid. The joker will be to like this generation. The Godfather is to boomers. It's just like they referenced. The Godfather like other times in the transcript where they're like right Hillary Clinton's ugly like Luca Brasi. Shit like should talk like Kay. Great fucking love love to just reference that it makes radio illegal like the millennial equivalent is going to be. When there's an inevitably corrupt as millennials running shit what do we over reference mean girls? Girls don't even go here. Dan Outta here. Yeah Girls Joker will probably work. Its Way I think. Dan knows for sure mad adventures reference so many adventures sad new one every year. It really like a yeah. There's they we have a much more complicated and varied pop culture rich media diet diet whereas they're just all pulling from the same movie that like guys were allowed likely sixties all. We're watching the same movie back. Then right now could be any number of and then it's like some people make references some streaming show. I never heard of somebody called Chris. CUOMO freight yeah no and he tried to fight them word for Italian people. No it's not a good man please. Have they sit in a row freight all right. Yeah Yeah in two thousand. Seventeen was reported trump. Staffers recording is just breath in two thousand. Seventeen trump. Staffers were quoting the godfather reference. There are saying we've got to go to the mattresses it's just like yeah toxic masculinity either like you know France. Ford Coppola has come out multiple times. been like no. They're not like this is a bad start. Shut the fuck up. Stop watching the movie if you're going to take it that way and you know the nation full of like shock jocks on FM radio radio or just like out here being like thinking. It's the coolest Shit. Well I guess I mean it's sort of the implications of the stone thing is basically that this proves that he was the conduit between wikileaks in the trump campaign right. He said he wasn't trump. said it wasn't so now you're like okay. So he was lying to muller then yeah because they have this evidence I like no no sir. We can tell that you knew about this and you were in fact this sort of go between But then they're saying in this article that his argument meant was that are essentially in his mind that he wasn't trying to deceive Congress but that he believed that the stuff around wikileaks just didn't fit the parameters of of their investigation. So he didn't need to talk about it. There's there's there's an over assault of like from the right and whatever if you that should if they should Jamba Belykh of just seeing what sticks and if it don't stick say I was joking. Yeah like they ask. Tom Giuliani the yesterday like Hey what do you think about. Trump may be selling you out during this whole thing. He's like oh I don't think so I have good insurance life insurance in case You know I slipped on the top or something like the right time. He was joking right. Lawyer have to say you joking horribly Defendu the right yes anything like one person Dean can scream louder and scream loud. Once it's like he's the screamer guy but the right they just will say absurd. It's almost like the rite are the mean girls. What I'm saying? Yes to some sort of Thanos post referring and we all have those disappear snap and then your dad other movies. I can't shake off so being because the the violence but when you look at it till like with inch Giuliani being like I have insurance right and rental making Co. Savini also said the similar thing too and they're like are you worried about getting ousted and he was like I know too much what you see like they have. They're already showing. He said that. Yeah they're already lifting up their shirts right now be like I got that. That's how they talked to trump. It threw him back right. He doesn't believe or like hear anything unless it's coming at him through Fox New Right what I'm saying. That's why they're like not through his worst are like they're like you test me right. Fuck insurance is so Guilty looking like every but how many people who work for him have been found guilty of crimes all of them when I worked at the gap like fucking and fire every week. More People's need gap on seven hundred North Michigan and Chicago trump administration. Yeah but I think again and that just shows you what the meant that's phase. We're in right now. Is everyone is like readying their insurance policies. Now we've got something. Yeah Okay you can fuck with me but at your own detriment. That's why it's like is he keeps like the the it's been a week of like is he gonNA fire movement is he not is like I'm trying to figure out. Okay if I do fire him. What's GONNA be cost? Is that going to make him talk. And I'm sure trump's like pulling mulvaney into closed-door meetings things where he's just like you're not gonNA say Shit Right. We've all had bad bosses where you're just like you know it's not like one hundred percent dude. We okay having a closed door. And he's asking them incriminating obviously incriminating things like. Yeah so you made the threats and then the tape recorder right. I know I feel like trump wouldn't even notice if the tape recorder fell out of the way it would have to be a tape recorder. Could be a phone with the recorder APP on your phone call. Yeah he believe you could hold the phone like this aiming at him video right and be like you're not recording stories like Nah. Nah I'm just I'm checking. Twitter unplugged Ethernet cords like that photo. Right right yeah from the al-Baghdadi mission from the assassination. All right. We're GONNA take a quick break.

It's funny that he called it triggered him like he has a bunch of just horrifyingly stupid shit hidden there like he calls Trans Women Athletes Mediocre men. And he also compares his family Eh sacrificing running their business which they haven't done it all and they continue to run their business and make it more profitable from their father's presidency but in theory eerie they were supposed to stop running their their father's business and he compared that to the sacrifice of veterans with the the by making a Lotta money. Yeah Oh wow think about it I mean well there's a monetary value to everything. And so if you think about these families that are losing the earning value of a son who they lost or you know a husband It's like the n word for the trump plan with one of the more for questionable surprising claims in the book that I I did not see coming His claim was that his his dad is not racist which I assumed he would say but the best he could come up with was an anecdote from his childhood when he would let done junior. And Eric play video. Radio Games with Michael Jackson Complicated very complicated layer signed layers. Well that is. That's where his mind went when they were like. Come up with like come up with an anecdote that like paint your dad and a picture where like. He's not racist assist and he was like Got It I can do. Yeah it's wild when the selection processes made of like the black person. Listen we're supposed to go okay. We approve wait a minute he golfs with OJ. Do Right who is supposed to go like. Okay well if he played with him trying to make okay by association not race. It's Michael Jackson in the book immediately appeared on bestseller lists right when it was released but some people noticed that the RNC is giving out signed signed copies of the book in exchange for donations which they claimed helps boost reported. Sales wasn't even like again. They don't even try. They've been getting away with ship for so long they don't even try to cover that shit up all glamor Right it's like it's like even like when you meet even like in media companies these were people are just focused on the chart itself not the quality of the work Brecca's like that's the currency for some people it's like was our thing at the top of a list right versus like is this thing actually respected by peers in industry right but we're trying to appeal to and this is sort of that exact same logic because they just need to be able to be like number one number the number one number one number but that's so funny because it has the Little Dagger Dick next to it. I e the death asterisk on the New York Times list which denotes this is from bulk. DOC purchases Just letting you know that this is a bit of a Fucker as they call it on the New York Times bestsellers list. He's got booed to yeah. It is funny that he called the book triggered because he then did scheduled a book signing and book reading at Ucla. The hotbed doc. Bed for miles triggered triggered lives. Get ready and so on and open a cigarette dinner oil in writing out from the library so him and his girlfriend Kimberly guilfoil showed up there and there were protesters but not the protesters. They wanted Because it wasn't liberal protesters. There were like a handful of liberal protesters who were you know. Basically respectful and didn't do that much but there were conservative protesters protesters who thought that it was messed up that he wasn't opening it up for questions for them to up to pony him to these are the people who are the WHO are so right of even trumpers Ray. y'All not racist enough yes. Yeah and that's what's that's what was even more instinct so they just sort of this process of evolution of the offshoots of shit bags on so shit bags on the right started protesting and shouting and Don Jr. anger started getting triggered and he only spoke for twenty minutes. And then Kimberly got up and started shouting at the people telling thing then that their mothers were probably not proud of them and I bet you engage and gone online dating. Because you're impressing no one here to get a date in person. Isn't that funny when people try and hit you with burn from their generation. And you're right. What yeah I just met?
