Charting of the Human Genome, 20 Years Later
"We're talking about challenges for genetic research. 20 years after the first draft of the human genome was published with my guests, Dina Zelinsky, a bio infirm, a Titian with the Paris transplant group. And elite scientists for civil tech and crystal, soc and indigenous geneticist bioethicist with Vanderbilt University and the Native Bio Data Consortium Crystal I introduced you as a co founder of the Native Bio Data Consortium. Which gets to an issue we've talked about in different ways on this program in the past indigenous sovereignty over genetic data, please remind us how big an issue this is. Yeah. So when we talk about precision, medicine and health were always promising that the next advantages and innovations will be conferred to those individuals that contribute the genomic information. The pandemic has shown that preventive healthcare and structural barriers to access to health care probably highlighted more about health disparities than this UN pronounced supposed to future advantages of healthcare. Indigenous peoples have You know, willingly or unwillingly contributed their didna for the supposed betterment of humankind Need I remind everybody what happened after the completion of the Human Genome Project. We had the completion of large scale diversity projects such as the Human Genome Diversity Project and 1000 genomes project, which were denounced by over 600 plus indigenous nations worldwide that went to United Nations because they were concerned. About privatization and commercialization and exploitation of indigenous genomes and what has happened to those biomarkers collected from indigenous peoples from Central South America. Those bio markers are now freely and openly accessible to companies such as ancestry, Didna and 23 Me ancestry. Edna has hosted revenues over a billion dollars every holiday quarter since 2017 so we always have to ask yourselves. What exactly are the protections? Really? This data privacy and commercialization. The rate of technology outpaces our regulations, these new technologies and while we think that these protections are conferred by laws, which is the genetic Information nondiscrimination Act Last change. Companies are bought and sold. So we have to ask yourself what's the commercial value? The data that we're being asked to freely give away and how can we look to communities and empower communities to self directed decisions that are being made using their data? Dina, you contributed your data, and you gave it away freely. Do you not feel the same kind of threat here that exist? Not quite in the same way. No individuals of European ancestry make up the vast majority of genetic studies, and that's really problematic because they only make up 6% of the population. And I, I completely understand the threats to underrepresented populations. We should be sequencing these underrepresented populations, but we should be sequencing them with the idea of Making genomics research more equitable of giving back to these communities, not just taking from them. That being said, I can't even explain how useful data like that from the 1000 genomes project has been. I've used it in most of my projects. I have whole human genomes at the tip of my fingers. When I'm accessing this data, as well as other scientists, I think We generally have good intentions, so I currently use it in a study to better understand Parkinson's disease. That being said. I think in many cases, a lot of this data has restricted or limited access for researchers versus commercial entities. I agree here that we we really should limit what industry can or cannot do with with our data. Krystal. You mentioned preventive care and the pandemic. The human Genome Project. I remember promised to tell us everything about her genome. Doesn't this sort of tell people Hey, we know everything about you now and ignore the nurture part of the nature nurture debate. What I can tell you as a geneticist. My first skepticism and what I always tell tribal leaders is that genetic data is just the easiest type of data to collect. But genetic data does not. Predict as much about disease risk than we think. Other things such as access to care, cultural factors, colonial factors relating to help probably contribute more to the health differences and outcomes than actual genetics itself. Things like diet environment and lifestyle are things that we should be looking at. And definitely socioeconomic status by factors. But these are the hardest bits of data to collect. And so we really can't build truly robust models without looking at these other factors related to health. So looking at genetics and biological factors is sometimes a little bit of a cop out. You don't necessarily properly convey the limitations of genetics and biological research to the lay

We all know that all of that roars completely re suitable. This is all completely refuted, will the four prosecutors who resigned from my case and said that that the that they're sentencing recommendation of nine years had been rejected? It was rejected by the judge. The judge said it was excessive. She's one of them. So you can forget that these guys are not non political career line prosecutors, one of them Jonathan Kravitz, not crayfish. Kravitz was the deputy counsel to Barack Obama in the Obama White House. That's a political appointee. Aaron Zelinsky. He had a conflict of interest. His emails at the Clinton State Department were among the emails that were released by Wikileaks. He's up to his arse, as we say in Britain in the in the Benghazi cover up. So they all had a you know a extreme interest, but now they try to pass himself off as if they're just career bureaucrat, right? The charge that William Barr interfered in. My sentencing is false. They never withdrew the 7 to 9 year recommendation, even though it was deeply flawed. Howie. The federal guidelines held that I should get 18 months. They gave me 40. Show me where I gotta break. Where did I get a break? I know it's so rare Roger that a federal judge will deviate upwards from the guidelines. It's almost in my experience. It's almost always they go down. You know, I mean this this woman is she. She really had it in for you. She was appointed by Obama, Of course, and she I don't. I don't think this is gonna look well on, you know, on her permanent record in her obituary that she that she tried to throw you with jail for basically nothing. Well, if I can ever get to my appeal, I will prove or corruption. You shall no longer be a federal judge. But if I have to live that long to do so, uh and appeal is at least a year and probably a $1,000,000 in legal fees away. Ah, and the emergency motion was filed in good faith and just ignored.

His words I'm hoping that in an act of mercy, injustice, he will allow me to fight on words. Have you spoken to him probably politically untenable. Commutation of sentence works for me and will give me a chance to live. Which is the key thing. Have you spoken to him? I have not spoken the president directly or indirectly. We have mutual friends, but it's abundantly clear from his Twitter feed. He's watching the situation very, very closely, and he knows that I have committed no real crime. I'm a victim. Here is the best part how they didn't open the investigation into me until three months after they knew there was no collusion between the Russian state. Anyone who studied the case knows it was a total frame up. Roger. If people want to read up on the case, or, you know, contribute to your legal defense fund. What's the Web address? They can go to. Stone defense fund dot com. Stone defense fund dot com. In the short term, I have to pay for the emergency motion.

"Federal prosecutor, Aaron Zelinsky has told the House Judiciary Committee today he believes Roger Stone received special treatment in his court case because of stones Long time association with President Trump. Roger Stone was treated differently because of politics. He received breaks that are in my experience unheard of, and all the more so for a defendant in his circumstances, the former federal prosecutor said. Stone sentence appears to have been reduced because of pressure from the Trump administration. Stone was convicted of lying to Congress and other charges and is awaiting sentence. President Trump says his first national security advisor Michael Flynn, has been exonerated. Now that the false statements charge against him has been ordered dropped by a three judge panel of the D C Circuit Court of Appeals.

"Length testified that he told the president so when his adviser Andre your mark that he fought he couldn't remember for sure he he amended and revised his testimony at this point after hearing from bill Taylor in your mother some of the others he fought he presumed that trump wanted Zelinsky to make a public announcement about investigating verismo before he trump would release the aid Sunderland then told the bill Taylor and others that yes he had told your mark that so then this gets passed around Sunderland therefore becomes the source for the story that trump demanded a quid pro quo and it why is it in exchange for his Lynskey are non saying the investigation into Borisova not starting it not doing it Josh announcing it these people claim trump even here one of the investigation actually happened he just wanted then and now he wanted the announcement from Ukraine that day finally we're gonna be looking into verismo and hunter Biden and Joe Biden well this is all blown up because time magazine went and talked Joe I'm great your mock you're my can is a Lansky's adviser and he's the guy that song one thinks he said that this guy I thought my I think trump wanted Zelinsky to make a public announcement he wasn't sure he presume so your mark told time magazine that sounds like never told them that in fact I'm sorry your mark says the two of them never even spoke except for a few innocuous remarks EM passing they never head any kind of a private conversation ever your marks and we bumped into each other in the hallway next to the escalators I was walking out and I remember everything's fine with my memory I don't have a memory problem we talked about how well the meeting went and that's it he didn't tell me one thing about trump wanting an investigation demanding an investigation withholding aid not a thing and time magazine has to admit these comments cast doubt on an important moment in the impeachment inquires reconstruction of events specifically the only known point at which an American official directly track tells the Ukrainians about the link between US aid and the announcement of specific investigations but it does more than cast doubt it blows the entire case against trump out of the water is this was it Gordon Sunderland testifying that he fought trump wanted Zelinsky to make a public announcement sign one Amanda this test of now we'll get into what's going on assignment here in a minute what song London testified after re amended his testimony that he thought he didn't even say what certitude he told that your mark that he bought trump wanted Zelinsky to make a public about he presumed it based on other things have you heard but he did not wait for a fact your markets come along and said he didn't even tell me that we never had a meeting we ran into each other coming off of an elevator he never said a word to me about anything to do with a meeting with with with add an investigation and time magazine knows this is bad this this is very bad these comments cast doubt on an important moment in the impeachment inquires reconstruction is one other thing about psalm one Sunderland he did not put this number had a twenty page opening statement he did not put what I'm gonna tell you in his opening statement came out in questioning he said the the president said to him when asked Sam was a what do you want what do you want everybody was given what do you want trump said I don't want anything I don't want a quid pro quo I don't want anything I just want so let's get to do the right thing what he said he was going to do all right there direct testimony recital no quid pro quo trouble openly said he didn't want a quid pro quo it's been a it's been ignored it's been swept out of a record and instead what they kept in the record was somnolence testimony that he thought trump wanted a public announcement from the lens he investigating by them in exchange for aid flowing well now so is his number one aid your mark says we never talked about it some will never said this to me so the Republicans today at the mark up of the articles in future hearing kept harping on this as literally taking the bottom out of their case this literally blows up the entire impeachment case we have a primary a does a landscape saying no nobody ever talk to us about demanding a public announcement of an investigation in exchange for aid it never happened sama didn't say a word Sunderland and that testimony is why these articles of impeachment existence all the Democrats have ever had so now the question becomes what does someone think he was doing them he did testify altered his testimony to try that he had told your mock that he thought he presumed and by the way he never said was certain to that he presumed Tromp wanted Zelinsky to make a public announcement about investigating charisma before he would release a just assume that because of the other things he was hearing again your marks at not you never said a word not not that that didn't happen if that didn't happen then there is literally no basis for this impeachment so now we have to start as well what what the hell someone doing here so I'm going to trump him pick guy now we know that samba one's wife was being her businesses are being boycotted she's real estate hotels in Oregon she was being boycotted she was being bullied at one of the boycott movements being led by a Democrat member of Congress name run our brown hours some something our we also have subsequently heard reports that three women have accused Tom of sexual harassment in the European Union office of the occupied so why in the world one song one on man to his testimony after others and testify so yeah well I just thought I thought trump was demanding an investigation in exchange for aid when the guy he said it too is now openly denying that it ever happened Hey I'm the in time magazine now someone didn't testify about talking with this aid until he revised his testimony after bill Taylor said that he had told the Lansky's eight about the link if someone might be just been shooting off his mouth to impress Taylor and he didn't want to admit it or it was because of his wife being pressured whatever it is the bottom line is the Democrats have relied here on a witness who is shaky at best and cannot be verified it is original statements so this came up numerous times today this brought up by Republicans in nice so what are we doing here I mean this is your whole case and nobody hears even talking about it finally the round mound of the gavel decided to weigh in on it and here he is Jerry Nadler we did we heard that the Democrats are accusing president salen skin Mr year America of lying because Mister so as he said the president's choice he said he wasn't pressured well of course he said he wasn't pressured the United States is a powerful nation on which his nation is dependent he has a gun to his head the gun is the fact that the president the United States upon whom he depends for military aid you can accredited that tonight without any is versions of his character but simply on the fact that the president added states hold a gun to his head so we're just going to not believe Armonk and we're not gonna believes the landscape because it is their ally in two and there are a lot higher in because they're afraid of the Bali Donald Trump is got a loaded gun pointed at their heads so here is testimony here is there is a witness thinking before time the journalist story so forth your mind denying all of this demo now we

Democrats trying to destroy trump they're making a buffoon of this guy's a Lynskey there literally destroyed and this guy on the world stage are making him out to be a total of forty and a buffoon when in fact he has been elected in Ukraine to clean up that country to get rid of the kind of corruption that permitted people like Biden to show up and get prosecutors fired and the Democrats man it

"The lady of the recipient of the one but to Christy just Marconi awards broadcast the one in the old the old coming by Billy Cunningham the great American okay what tonight Sunday night is the law before the storm that starts tomorrow because tomorrow we're gonna be IG report Horowitz a lot of the conclusions have been late to rightfully or wrongfully every time there's a leak by the way it's a felony course out something a swap would not investigate but according to many the horror which reports largely gonna say according to the leaks which you can or cannot believe based upon your political proclivities that they essentially there were grounds for the FBI and the department justice to look at the trump campaign but that there might have been some problems with the FISA application of FISA warrant was here that turns out but they also tomorrow talk about a agree a good or a bad news week for the Democrats so that they could vote on articles of impeachment sometime later this week US representative Jerrold Nadler it looks like a character from Star Wars so the panel will not decide on this specific articles and after hearing on Monday tomorrow they consider evidence gathered by the house intelligence committee course that's a misnomer intelligence is possible draft going back and forth he said on CNN and why a conservative Republican whatever appear on CNN when the not a legitimate news gathering organization is beyond me but he told CNN and also NBC's meet the press articles of impeachment would be brought to the panel later this week ask of lawmakers could vote this week he said it's possible and the whole focus is on he says the July twenty five telephone call to Zelinsky the so called quid pro quo the quit being the hundreds of millions of dollars and an aide military aid that was released quite pro quo the call would be an investigation to be launched announced buys a landscape there was no investigation launched there was no announcement made there was no oval office visit and what's the lines can the president got together and the aid was released so I don't understand if you're a fair person how that's even close to being an impeachable offense when the president is the one by every objective standard whose actually help the cranium is defend against the so called Russian invasion in the eastern part of the Ukraine and Crimea well well Obama did little or nothing but send blankets from central Europe but the Democrats are so angry at the job numbers on Friday indicating that America right now is the greatest economy in the world the greatest economy for America in the history of the world is right now everything that should be up is up everything should be down is down so they can't run on the economy it's the economy stupid I got to make stuff up is that so much invested in Robert Muller and and Andrew Weissmann that thing failed miserably so then quickly they had to switch the anger they have toward the president and his successes toward something other than the Russian collusion delusion and that would be there's a let's get telephone call that the parties to it said there was no quid pro quo there was no holding up evade the telephone call never mentions that the aid will be held up it didn't happen Zelinsky did not know what was going on at all and now Rudy's over there trying to save the president's hide and of course CNN and others are acting as if he's on some illegal mission it is disgusting so this is the law before the storm that happens tomorrow with four words and also some time tomorrow I guess Jerry Nadler is going to your calls out of his committee to be a vote on whether to impeach the president then it goes to the entire house and certainly sometime the week of December sixteenth by the twentieth is going to be a vote nobody several Democrats against that I don't think there's gonna be any Republicans in favor of it and so if we use the Nadler standard from like twenty twenty two years ago this is Jerry Nadler speaking about impeachment at that point and this was on the impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton let's think about the Nadler standard given to us by Dana bash today on CNN it must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties and largely opposed by the other such an impeachment would lack legitimacy would produce the viciousness and bitterness in our politics for years to come so after that little cut was made and also practically every Democrat relative to Clinton and the impeachment in nineteen ninety eight nineteen ninety nine said you cannot go forward with an impeachment unless the Arbor other party more less agrees to Dana bash after that come from Jerry Nadler says so right now you're moving forward with impeachment proceedings against a Republican president without support from even one congressional Republicans is it fair to say congressman Nadler in your own words back then that this will produce divisiveness and bitterness and our politics for years to come nella replied no he said no no so are you willing to impeach the president with no Republican votes Dana bash asked and he said we're going to impeach the president we're going to impeach the president we will impeach him with adequate an urgent grounds and if there's no Republican vote vote so bad now though then said quote it's up to them to decide whether they want to be patriots or partisans on quote so right now Jerry Nadler Maxine waters Chuck Schumer all patriots I came Jeffries Jerry Nadler Carolyn Maloney all patriots and of course.

"Our convenience. we don't care about your convenience. I was just reading here part of the Wall Street journal editorial yeah on the whole thing yesterday and let me just read a couple to censor Mr trump does ask for a favor that Ukraine look at the twenty sixteen election meddling quote I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine they say crowd strike end of quote he says referring to the company that investigated the twenty sixteen hack of the Democratic National Committee he also goes after former special counsel Robert Muller no surprise there end notes that quote they say a lot of it started with Ukraine and of quote. Mr trump is clearly still sore about the attempt by the Hillary campaign to dig up foreign dirt on him and there's no but there's nothing wrong with asking a foreign head of state to investigate meddling in U. S. selections. only after that does Mr Zelinsky mention Mr trump's personal lawyer Rudy guiliani who had been publicly urging the Ukrainians to investigate Joe Biden and his son hunters activities in Ukraine. Mister Zielinski says he is quote hoping very much and of quote that the former New York mayor comes to Ukraine and promises at all quote investigations will be done openly and candidly end of quote. Mr trump response good quote good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. hi that's a quote after some praise for Mr guiliani Mr trump adds quote there's a lot of talk about Biden's son and that bite and stop the prosecution end of quote of corruption. in Ukraine Mr trump also says he intends to give Mister guiliani and Attorney General William Barr to call and yes it Mr silicic you work with them that's it. no quid pro quo the reference to the bidens are in the context of fighting corruption not a pre requisite for US aid. now Mr trump was unwise to mention Mr Biden but in the tenor but the tenor of the conversation is congenial and that's really amazing when you go through it it really is a friendly conversation right now I thought that was kind of mundane actually yeah very friendly it's amusing to hear the same critics who call Mr trump and fish bug on a daily basis now say this was all a subtle masterpiece of extortion. what is Mr trump ever subtle. Democrats are making much of Mr trump's reference at references to Attorney General our bar which were also important in the Biden context but the justice department says nothing came of it that Mr trump never asked Mr bar to make that call and Mister Barr never communicated with Ukraine or Mister guiliani about the Ukraine. Mr trump was certainly reckless and we've made this comment to use the former New York mayor as an anti corruption envoy or for anything else Rudy is an unguided missile and TV and can't be much better in private. wow me then I'm glad somebody else sees it the justice and state departments of plenty of people who can work with Ukraine on corruption now keep in mind that all of this came to public attention because of a leak about a whistle blower complaint from the intelligence bureaucracy. the accusation is that Mr trump somehow attempted to cover this up. but it looks on the evidence released Wednesday that the administration acted by the book the complaint went to the intelligence community inspector general who founded credible and deserving of submission to Congress under the whistleblower statute. but the director of national intelligence general counsel rightly sought legal counsel from the justice department office of legal counsel which has the authority on the executive branch legal obligations with the executive branch is legally obligated to do. the White House on Wednesday would released the office of legal counsel is legal opinion that the inspector general was wrong because Mr trump is not a member of the intelligence community and that a routine diplomatic called does not count as quote intelligence activity end of quote by the way nobody has attempted to debate that. meanwhile justice says it's criminal division has evaluated the inspector general's August referral that the phone conversation could be in violation of federal campaign finance law a justice department statement said the criminal division determine there was no violation and that's all reveling components of the department agreed with this legal conclusion in other words all the components of the department all the different aspects of the department and looked at it found that no campaign finance laws were broken were broken the I. G. will testify to Congress so we can compare his case to the justice department's. if Democrats want to pursue impeachment on this thin gruel then Americans should also consider the process by which this becomes a national political crisis first. a whistle blower who was still on identified. it was a complaint based on what he heard about a president's phone call. by the way the office of legal counsel Memel says. in passing that the inspector general's review acknowledges political bias I'm part of the complaint and in favor of a rival political candidates. then the inspector general makes the flawed legal argument that Congress must see the complaint. when his argument is rebutted word leaks to the press convert Congress Christ cobbling up and suddenly we are putting the country to another impeachment upheaval. is anyone else troubled that this is all it takes to impeach a president. if a bureaucrat who dislikes of president. can trigger a complaint based on hearsay that forces the disclosure of presidential diplomacy the conduct of foreign policy will be severely hampered democratic presidents will not be spared once Republicans figure out how this game works. Mr trump's refusal to abide by the normal guard rails a presidential decorum is often offensive. it can also be risky for himself and US interest we have often criticized him for that. but impeaching a president. is voting to one now an election. and that should require far more evidence than we have founder from this phone call. so there you go. that's just you know part and by the way we have covered all those but we've said that yesterday I mean how do we get to this point by hearsay you kidding me right then then you can make that case if the if the whistle blower is used which again it was used improperly here looking at the law was used improperly this is why we believe the whistle blowers identity should be known because he's not a whistleblower. right. then he decided to get in to jump into something with a political bent behind me that's yes this is something. if you decide to get into the arena if you want to be a part of it if you really believe something wrong was done here then you should have no problem coming forward. and being a witness right in front of all of America right we said and we said transparency now just like the Russian collusion got to the point we finally said fine transparency for everybody yep this is not to the point transparency for everybody transparency across the board transparency about the the as John Solomon everything the John Solomon his research for the hill dot com where he has said there's another article that he has today your order I'm just not today the the article that he had the other day that we we brought to you that said in wait a minute let's get real Democrats were the first to enlist Ukraine in the U. S. elections. and goes through all of the the the different points because earlier this month or in a bipartisan meeting in Kiev senator Chris Murphy Democrat of Connecticut delivered a pointed message to Ukrainians new president while choosing his words carefully he made it clear by his own account did you crane currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its USA but it could be jeopardized if the new presidential if the new president abided to request by president trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani to investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans including vice president Joe Biden's family Murphy boasted after the meeting that he told the new Ukrainian leader then USA was his country's most important asset and it would be viewed as election Medellin and disastrous for long term U. S. Ukraine relations to bend to the wishes of trump and Giuliani this implied message not require an interpreter for Zelinsky to understand investigate don't investigate. if you investigate the Ukraine dealings of Joe Biden's son hunter you jeopardize Democrats supports for future eight USA to Kiev and then it goes on and talks about not only that but it's a powerful reminder that since at least twenty sixteen Democrats repeatedly have exerted pressure on Ukraine a key US ally for buffering Russia to meddle in US politics and the and and elections and they go on and we we did this the other day of John Solomon vested in the Obama administration and their influence in the Ukraine when it came to the twenty sixteen election right so if you want to go down this path let's go down this path and we investigate everybody on it. yeah I'm I I say it that's the only way to handle this this is not some kind of small thing here just like with the molar investigation. if you take it seriously then there should be nothing but transparency along the way engine and just so you know as Solomon is reported and we did the store the other day so and and start and started on the narrative let's investigate everything forget about just Biden's son right the pressure began at least as early as January twenty sixteen when the Obama White House unexpectedly invited Ukraine's top prosecutors to Washington to discuss fighting corruption in the country the meeting promised us training turned out to be more of a pretext for the Obama administration to pressure Ukraine's prosecutors to drop an investigation into. the natural gas company that employed hunter Biden and to look for new evidence in that then Dorman criminal case against eventual trump campaign chairman Paul man a fort US officials kept talking about how important it was that all of our anti corruption efforts be United the former political officer for the Ukrainian embassy in Washington organize and attended the meetings Ukraine's chief anti corruption prosecutor told me that soon after he returned from the Washington meeting he saw evidence in Ukraine a political meddling in the U. S. selection that's when two top Ukrainian officials released secret evidence to the American media smearing Paul man a fort. the release of the evidence forced mana for to step down as trump's top campaign adviser. in court conducted last December that the release of the evidence I counted to an unlawful intervention invention in the U. S. selection by Kiev's government although the ruling has since been overturned on a technicality let's investigate all of that yep we're gonna go after trump let's look at the Obama administration to why because Joe Biden was a part of the Obama administration. and if that is true and John Solomon as we know the investigative reporter from the hill dot com I believe he's moving on next the this month he's going to have his own media company but formally with circuit dot com help break the story on.
"zelinsky" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"You're here you're obviously hearing me on the phone the phone line and that's because of the unprecedented. inability to use of the my machine on the road because. where I'm staying. does not have system internet access I've never I've never encountered this before and I my total policies to you this is the state first. what you can hear me and it's too important to a date for me and not to be with you so I continue now Mrs kalo see this is the Wall Street journal editorial. the acts of the trump presidency revealed this arable facts of the president's betrayal of his oath of office betrayal of our national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections I don't know when Xtranormal also the integrity of elections. I don't know what I don't even know what she's referring to it is a trip back to the collusion. three of the last is taking over of the of what was once a Liberal Party. the there is no question that if we have access to every phone call okay be president we've ever had to every foreign leader we could find reasons for impeachment if this is a reason for impeachment. not to mention our our. why wasn't it reason for impeachment of a president Obama. that does that is vice president. ordered at the pain of a billion dollars this Dow was quick to quote you which stated you got six hours or you don't I'm leaving cheer that's the capital of Ukraine I'm leaving cheer. if you if you don't fire the special prosecutor. and the so it's at all on the H. show more three eight Matthew says the word. the guys gone the press laughs they're the pals of the Democrats they can do no wrong and and that's it why why wasn't that considered corrupt. the American people will be the ultimate judge and they will want to see evidence that warrants overturning an election that's one impeachment is it's the overturning of a lot of an election. they haven't yet seen the transcript of Mr trump's all call now we have I'm gonna read it to you later. which the president says he will release on Wednesday that's the Davises yesterday senatorial. they don't know the context of Mr trump's request to Mister Zelinsky and how much it related to overall US policy toward Ukraine. and they don't know the role access and motivation of the whistle blower. Mr trump's invitation to Mr Zelinsky to investigate Mr Biden. if that's what it was. show that bad judgment in our view Mr trump has no filter for separating the personal from the political no president should invite a foreigner to investigate domestic component especially a president who's opponent whose opponents sort foreign durch to defeat him in twenty sixteen but bad judgment it's not a crime. and the voters may demand more to annul election only months before they have a chance to render their own judgment about Mr trump's behavior. Mrs Pelosi's decision will please our political base in Congress and the country that is our political breaks in the country. but she is also a least a political battle whose outcome is uncertain one thing she will now have an obligation to fairness this should include an investigation into the actions of Mr Biden and his son in Ukraine whether Mr trump had a point beyond self interest in raising the issue with the new Ukrainian president who campaigned against corruption corruption around the world is big deal I've always. mention that to you that's the breaks that's the big preventer progress in most of the world. she will also need a commitment to accountability for the house. this means voting to authorize an official inquiry as Republicans did in nineteen ninety eight regarding Bill Clinton. hello she can't get away with merely declaring something official. about honoring the proper procedure in making the members declared themselves on the record. if she wants the constitutional privileges of the impeachment power she has to be accountable for final paragraph. Mrs Pelosi has often said that impeachment won't be credible with the public if it is in part partition. yet so far it is entirely partition Mr Biden proves that point by calling two states for Mr trump's impeachment if you resist the demands of Congress. perhaps can impeach on a partition vote and the flying high crimes and misdemeanors as it wishes. but impeachment is ultimately political. and the voters will decide in twenty twenty if impeachment is what they voted for and twenty eighteen and over to the last but where the congressional election bell. that's that's the way it works. that gentleman I can go back on the the regular. this is a. coming to place you hear me now on the air are we good. but I am male broadcasting. Amir with Mitchell good. okay great. that that was the editorial my dear friends in the Wall Street journal. and it is a powerful one Wall Street journal is a moderate Republican voice moderate conservative voice. and they they would be more than the open to saying you know this is really worth it Nancy.
