The Arrogant Killer

"September twenty seventh. Two thousand seventeen seemed like a fairly typical morning for Jennifer forward. The fifty six year olds was working as a nanny and house manager for a father and his two children in Winter Park Florida. She arrived at the Berman family. Home around seven. Am to get the ten year old son ready for school. She dropped him off at seven. Fifty A M and then came back to the house little. Did she know someone was watching her that morning? Jennifer saw the father read Berman off to work at eight thirty and then left to her dentist appointment on her way back. She called Janet Grin to tell her to head on over to the Burmans home for a previously arranged job hanging a painting alarm records. Show the front door to the Berman. House opened at eleven thirty am minutes later. Jennifer called Janet to tell her not to come over after all because there was an emergency at the boys school and she had to pick him up at two thirty PM for regular school dismissal. The boys still hadn't been picked up read. Berman called Jennifer. But she didn't answer her phone and wasn't back at the house when he got there. Was it out of the ordinary for Jennifer to not pick up your kids when she was scheduled to do so yes and that ever happened before Labor in almost seven years that she had been taking care of your kids. Oddly enough he found her purse downstairs. Bathroom it appeared as though some chores had been done but not all. He calls her husband checked with local hospitals. But still no Jennifer. Finally that need Jennifer was reported as a missing person to the Winter Park Police Department. They noticed that three hundred dollars had been withdrawn from her bank account and another one hundred dollars was taken out the next day at an ATM. In Jacksonville Florida.

Bernie Sanders won't admit it, but socialism is a liability

"He calls himself a democratic socialist so why did he start the democratic Socialist Party run on the democratic socialist line you know that's socialist run before including even against Franklin Roosevelt midwesterners Wisconsin Bernie Sanders doesn't right is endemic to run as a democratic socialist nobody ever asked him why he doesn't run as a democratic socialist instead he's trying to take down take over the already miserable Democrat party but I wonder about the what's the problem Mr calls grin I want you to clear a few lines I want any Bernie Sanders supporters know fakes real well just hang up on you to call this program Intel millions of people around the nation why you support Bernie Sanders and why we should support brings giving you an opportunity now that you'll never have again your candidates too much of a coward to come on this program or any of my programs that may be maybe one or two or three of his supporters will call in and explain themselves and explain what it is exactly Bernie Sanders once for the country I suspect we'll get nobody some challenging you to call I think it's important that you explain yourselves Bernie Sanders will come on this program because we have a serious discussion about his ideology and the declaration and the constitution and whether or not all of them can coexist which course they can't I want to know where the authority comes from to nationalize public utilities in nationalized healthcare whatever it is you don't cite some Supreme Court decision where's the authority in the constitution they never say to print quick decisions when they lose so I cite them when you win I'm talking about the constitution by the way speaking of that the constitution my wife and I saw the Clarence Thomas movie this weekend Mr petition it was fabulous absolutely fabulous and I learned more about Clarence Thomas then in before even having read his book because he elaborates on points one of the things you really gonna love about this I don't know if they're gonna run it additional days in the theaters or not I mean after all he's not was bare Ginsburg with a run it for months and Hollywood gets behind it and so forth but he he speaks in a straightforward common sense way it tells you exactly what took place in his life during the hearings and so forth and at the end of the movie everybody applauded uploaded this is a giant speaking of giants Clarence Thomas is a giant he believes in the family he believes in fidelity to the declaration and the constitution he believes in those words natural law natural rights which mean what god given unalienable rights god given puts things in proper perspective not Bernie Sanders given that Elizabeth Warren given god given and of course for the rest of left the secularists the status they cannot accept that they rejected otherwise their entire ideology falls apart first of all there's god can have that and secondly there the limits placed in the constitution on their power can have that in third this this huge problem called unalienable right I keep hearing these guys on the Senate floor Democrats I think we call them house managers another Democrat managers every Republican voted against it they're Democrat manage they're Democrat handlers the Democrat propagandists thrown through talk about democracy trump is a threat to our democracy in a democracy we have transparency and of course it's the opposite of everything they've done but that's not the point there's a huge distinction between a democracy and Republic democracy is extremely dangerous we've talked about this but underscore the point if you believe an unalienable rights any democracy they can't work together because that means people can vote to deny you your unalienable rights the whole purpose of a constitutional Republic is to secure your constitutional right to protect the from tyranny to any of the mob you see during the mob right now from tier any the few from whatever the Tierney is the constitution is like a protective shield to protect the individual on the civil society so they keep time in a democracy and direct elections in this sort of thing can I expand on this more tonight on live in TV but let me just touch this because we have a very odd thing going on in this country and one of the few who's willing to speak out against this I am not a populist populism which really had its first first the sort of systemic viewer eight or more tangible approach was in the eighteen late eighteen sixties early eighteen seventies even at a popular Sir people's party back then you see the distinction between those who believe in individual liberty in those who believe in centralized government becomes ambiguous if you're a populist what does that mean the people should rule now is some of the constitution says the people should rule they set up the Senate so the state legislatures choose the senators they know how to set it up if they wanted the people to vote that was change for the seventeenth amendment they set up the presidency so it's not a direct election so there's an electoral college what did they do that because they didn't want a popular quote unquote democracy a mob Akhras's the courts lifetime appointments I believe term limits but what I believe is beside the point they set up a court lifetime upon the only directly elected body is the house of representatives part of the Congress that's it if they believed in populism why would there be a Senate if they believe in populism why would you vote for judges would that be great not be disaster the states they have in most states it's a disaster you know more in Florida were driving through and it's election time for their judges vote for any robot ski District Court is nobody knows who the hell are need to brush it any Grabowski is then I reading his opinions now we're not a pure democracy we're not even a democracy and no this isn't about populism it's about constitutionalist and constitutionalism is about a polling individual right liberty god given right so you need a governing body unity governing system in a civil society who's going to call the shots is a diverse society there's a lot of people is a lot going on he got a lot of states and so forth so the constitution is the roadmap the constitution is what lays it out now if you read rediscovering Americanism by the way Mr producer I told the publisher to send a copy to every Supreme Court justice after I watch this Lawrence Thomas movie I'm sure they're all read it very carefully anyway so if you understand progressivism they have to reject our founding documents they have to reject because the emphasis is put on the individual and the individual's relationship with god progressivism doesn't put an emphasis on individualism it puts an emphasis on collectivism and its relationship to government they're two completely different ideology and so when they talk in Iowa about very Sanders is leading in the polls her Bernie Sanders will win and so forth and you have so called populist in our country some on television some just in Congress some who are egg heads whatever and they're out there talking about would populace and so forth were but we'll wait is there populism and and Bernie Sanders populism begin Mister but if somebody needs to read a trip right a treatise on this because I can't figure it out and either can they which is why more and more of these so called conservative populist sound more more like Bernie Sanders or a more more sympathetic to all the Democrat party trying to stop Bernie Sanders well he's not even a Democrat and what was me Bernie Sanders is a victim who gives a crap let them brutalize and let them realize each other it's bizarre it's bizarre in this appeal unfortunately is an appeal that goes beyond our borders autocracy has an appeal particularly among free people why because they never believe that it's going to devour their lifestyle and of course their lifestyle is the target think about government run healthcare for a minute let's say you can't get the drug that you want were you gonna go to get it how you go to appeal it let's say you have some horrific disease and it's very very expensive if you're not on the list at HHS or the CDC you're not on the list that is the disease you don't get we see these things happening in Britain we see these things happening in Germany and France all around the EO we see these things happening in Canada and on top of that what else do we see they smother innovation life saving drugs and as many of you know it is I witness will witnessing today people who are extremely ill extremely ill many would do anything for a life saving drug and I want to take this one step further our minds our intellect our brains are built to find solutions government is built to smother them redistribution of wealth radical egalitarianism that's not about allowing the human mind

Impeachment trial of President Trump continues

"Baloney this is an effort to overturn the results of one election and to try to interfere in the coming election that begins today in Iowa and we believe that the only proper resolved before applying the golden rule of impeachment if for plying the rules of impeachment that were so eloquently stated by members of the Democratic Party the last time we were here the only appropriate result here is to acquit the president and to leave it to the voters to choose their president White House counsel Patsy Bologna at closing arguments of the impeachment trial of president trump John McConnell is a professor at Georgetown law school what about this argument from the president's attorneys house managers argued quite the opposite so we Lofgren said today if the impeachment in election years was not to be our founders what is said no yes there is no exception written into the constitution for a certain kind of high crimes and misdemeanors that bear upon elections being off limits if anything I think the house managers have the stronger argument here namely that the very conduct at issue in this case bears upon the crowd credibility of our elections so it's not an argument to elect a president go ahead and campaign when he's shown himself to be untrustworthy and willing to to bend the rules and break them what about the appeals to the founders professor Mikhail that we kept hearing really from from both sides as they tried to to couch their their arguments within the the framework of the constitution yeah it's very telling that both sides really went for originalist arguments that it is in some sense it's a reflection of just how strong the gravitational pull of originalism has become in our political and legal culture neither side really took issue with the idea that the correct touchstone or the correct a measure of the impeachable info fences and high crimes and misdemeanors and so forth want to be what the founders intended or what they wrote into the document and apps revealing their other legal and constitutional issues where the the arguments would really go in another direction say for example what counts is cruel and unusual punishment where most persons agree that really the standards that ought to be applied in that kind of a context are contemporary standards not necessarily eighteenth century standards yeah and we kept hearing that from from the the democratic house managers that what the president was accused of is exactly what the the founders meant and certainly the opposite from from the other side which is it what what did the founders intended well does on this point it doesn't matter I think everyone thinks that the history at least matters whether or not it's dispositive I think of another question but really on this question again I have to side on the merits with what the house managers were arguing in the following sense the president's lawyers questioned whether abuse of power counts as a high crime and misdemeanor and they argue that it doesn't the problem with that is that the single most important impeachment that matter to the founders with the impeachment of a man named Warren Hastings in Great Britain it was happening in the British parliament at the very time that the constitution was drafted the chief prosecutor of Hastings was Edmund Burke of political theory fame who used to be incidentally a hero to American conservatives Edmund Burke is one of the people that they tend to look to for their founding ideals and ideas and Berks the peach impeachment Hastings makes quite clear that abuse of power was in fact a high crime and misdemeanor that was the language that was used in Great Britain in seventeen eighty six eighty seven eighty eight just at the time that the constitution was being drafted and ratified and we have evidence in the records of the constitutional convention that Hastings impeachment was discussed by the framers so it's really very hard for the president's lawyers to deny that the views of power is an impeachable offense or could count as a high crime and misdemeanor in light of this kind of historical evidence there was also this other argument we heard it from from can start that in a any invoke deflate gate he said we don't have depleted footballs that's one of the rules and and you guys didn't follow the rules pointing it at Democrats saying that this whole impeachment just wasn't proper ugh the end and you know it was a little rich to hear him to cry the age of the era of impeachment that in large part Ken Starr may of started but it is their real quick professor McCullough the did anything to his point no I don't think so I mean that the as you say that really was an exquisite case of the pot calling the kettle black but as as far as the substance of the matter the constitution it is very simple in the powers of delegates to the house to impeach and to the Senate to try impeachments there are no restrictions on how the house Kerry's that out that are written into the constitution and there are really only a couple of data points so the and

"house manager" Discussed on The Takeaway

"Yesterday mark forty seven years since the supreme court legalized abortion in landmark case Roe v Wade today. The battle over abortion rights has reached a fever fever pitch in two thousand nineteen the. US saw an unprecedented number of laws aimed at limiting people's right to abortion according to the good mockery institute twenty-five new abortion bands were signed into law primarily in the Midwest and in the south. But there's another kind of restriction flown under the radar so called abortion reversal laws states including North Dakota Oklahoma and Arkansas have passed laws requiring doctors to tell patients seeking medication based abortions that the procedure can be reversed if they change change their minds halfway through the procedure. The medical establishment says. That's not true. And there's no reliable research supporting these treatments joining me now. Is Mary. Ziglar law professor at Florida State University and the author of several books about abortion including abortion and the law in America Roe V. Wade to the present which comes out in March Mary Mary thanks for coming on the show. Thanks also with. This is Mark Herron senior counsel with the Center for Reproductive Rights. Mark Glad you could join us too happy to be here Mary Mary. How does a medication? Abortion actually work and our antiabortion activists claiming it can be reversed medication. Abortion usually requires women are patients to take two pills mifepristone which helps to detach the pregnancy from the uterine lining and Misoprostol which I'm causes contractions so anti-abortion groups that are promoting these worship though reversal. Laws claimed that Usually if you take only the first mill in the to protocol will and then take significant uses of progesterone that an abortion won't be completed. So is the idea as far as you can tell that antiabortion activists. I'm trying to buy time if you will in which to allow for someone to have doubts about going through with the procedure I think so and I think the laws are part of a bigger narrative that anti-abortion groups have promoted which is that women regret abortions. And so the idea here I think is to advance that the idea and also to suggest that women who feel that way or or encouraged to feel that way by anti-abortion groups that they can change their minds. What explains this rise in these quote owed abortion reversal laws? There too. I think primary things that have led the emphasis put on these laws. The I I think is just an increase in the number of women who are using being medication abortion and their pregnancies and a sense on the part of anti-abortion groups that that number is only going to increase as more states introduce abortion restrictions. And as some states it's roby weight is overturned actually ban abortions it becomes more and more important then for anti-abortion groups to convince women that abortion pollster about idea and that abortion pills I don't necessarily lead to the end of pregnancy. The other reason these laws had spread is because of a broader strategy to reverse row on the theory eerie that abortion hurts women the Supreme Court when previously deciding not to overturn Roe emphasized. The idea that women rely on abortion to attain equal citizenship ship whether that's in pursuing economic opportunities for educational opportunities anti-abortion groups. Believe that if the court no longer thinks that right if women cannot or should not rely on worship than the court will undo row so these abortion pill reversal loss fit into a strategy centered on the idea that abortion is bad for women so mark. Do we have any evidence. Supporting the claim of these laws. That medication abortion can be reversed. Well we know that medication abortion as Mary says a two drug protocol and if that protocol is followed allowed it's both extremely safe and extremely effective. It's effective in over ninety. Five percent of cases and the rate of serious complications is less than zero point. Four percent and We also know that if only the first drug mifepristone is taken and not follow it up with a second drug. There's a high rate of continued pregnancies up to fifty percent so the claims that are being made. Is that if you introduce high rates of progesterone after taking the first pill that not that somehow counteracts the effects of the first pill but there's absolutely no credible scientific evidence that the progesterone has any effect whatsoever. There was a recent study that tried to actually test this reversal theory using rigorous scientific evidence that double blinded controlled clinical trial that you would typically see before you introduce a new treatment and they actually had the researchers there had to stop the study after only twelve women took the treatment because three of the women experienced severe hemorrhaging. So what we're seeing. Is that this quote unquote reversal treatment. Not Not only is there. No science showing its efficacy. In fact the American College of Obstetricians and gynecologists has said that this is not based on credible evidence but there are serious concerns with safety and the Ama the American Medical Association is also actually spoken out about this correct. That's correct the Center for Reproductive Rights is challenging reversal laws in both North Dakota and in Oklahoma. I'm involved in both of those lawsuits. And in our North Dakota case the American Medical Association has joined his plaintiff in that case Mary this narrative underlying all these laws rests on the idea that people are going going to regret having an abortion. What do we know about that? There was just recently a study Suggesting that very few women do regret abortions Worshi- but I think unfortunately in the state of the abortion debate. There's really no study. That would put those arguments about abortion and regret to rest. So I think there's been a considerable amount of research suggesting that women don't regret worship on at least for the most part but anecdotal evidence or questions questions about what anti-working activists would see his bias will mean that arguments about abortion and regret will live on. I think not least of which because they're believed believed by anti-abortion lawyers to be effective in the courts as a strategy for eventually dismantling abortion rates mark. I'm also wondering what these laws mean for for doctors especially in an ethical or legal sense. The most critical part of a physician patient relationship is trust. Patients have to believe that their doctors are giving them sound medical advice in ends advice that they can rely on and physicians have an ethical obligation toward their patients and these the state laws are requiring physicians to tell their patients about a course of treatment. That is not only Medically unsound in terms of There's no evidence of efficacy it's also potentially dangerous and so it really puts doctors in this Hobson's choice and the the Oklahoma Lawford for example. Actually makes it a felony to not tell your patients about this quote unquote reversal. Treatment and doctors can be fined up to ten thousand dollars a day if they don't post these notices in their waiting rooms so doctors and now forced. Do I rescue criminal penalties. Or do I give my patients false. And misleading information and violate my ethical obligations. Mark Herron is senior counsel with the Center for Reproductive Rights and Mary.

Oh tests hence you will see that Schoenbach itself. There has been a great effort to underline the secular nature of this agitation. There have been interface songs that have been people of all religions There have been people of all communities with common shared the stage. Because I think there's an attempt to say that yes. Although this is a vigil led by women women and Muslim women. It doesn't speak on the far Muslims. This isn't just Muslim. Speaking for listening. This is Indian speaking for the possible disenfranchisement or marginalization marginalization if you will off India's slips from the Indian point of view is it significant that this is getting international attention now especially against the backdrop of of an economy. That's really not doing as well as many people think it should be doing so I think the economy is the headline there right. I think the Indian or perhaps the government thinking has been that as long as India remains a sort of critical market the woods media me sort of cop a bit but governments. We need India's business and they need India's market but if the economy continues to nosedive in doesn't recover and I think that leverage that India as emerging superpowers of this region has enjoyed will diminish and therefore I think what how the world reacts and how India counters that is going to depend very much on how the economy performs bark is an author journalist and Washington Post columnist. Barca thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me on Tuesday. The Brazilian government filed a criminal complaint against journalist. Glenn Greenwald alleging. He helped attack. The cell phones of public officials. Prosecutors are demanding greenwald be charged in relation to an investigative series. He worked on that exposed ethical violations corruption corruption and politically driven convictions by Brazilian prosecutors and a high ranking government official the intercept the news organization Greenwald helped found began. AM publishing these stories. Last June based on a trove of leat private chats audio recordings and other documentation Greenwald is best known for his work exposing widespread spread surveillance practices by the US government based on documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden US lawmakers and press freedom organizations have spoken out in support of Greenwald warning that these charges could lead to broader tax on free speech under the government of far. I Brazilian President Joao Year Bolsonaro so here to discuss this in his first. US Radio interview since a criminal complaint was filed we're joined by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Glenn Greenwald Co founder of the intercept. He's with US via skype. Glenn thank you so much for being with us. Give me really appreciate it. Tell US exactly what the Brazilian prosecutors are. Alleging regarding your role in the investigation published by the intercept and the intercept Zip Brazil so the expertise that you referenced at the beginning were enabled by an anonymous source who came to us with with a large archive of communications and a secret documents. Exchange between high-level Brazilian officials that he said he had hacked by the time he talked to me he had already obtained all of this material. They are nonetheless Accusing me of being a participant in the winter are calling in organized Criminal Organization based on their theory that while talking to the source the source asked me whether or not he he should be deleting the conversations I was having with him I explained to him that I couldn't give him any advice But that I did have an obligation to protect him. As my source I was saving all communications and there was no need for him to save them because I was keeping them in a secure place for my own protection and his. The federal police leased concluded their investigation. Two months ago and said there's no evidence that I committed any crime of any kind even pointed to that specific conversation and said this is proved that he always used professionalism and caution to avoid involving himself in any potential criminality but the prosecutor who's known even as being a pro bolsonaro prosecutor prone to abuse. His power has the opposite theory. which is that when I said? Oh you don't need to worry. I'm keeping copies of all of our conversations that I was implicitly. Giving him a wink wink Form of advice to destroy the communications and therefore made myself part of the Criminal Organization station and when he's actually to these Communications happen the source. I contacted me on Mother's Day of two thousand nineteen which if my memory serves was may eleven and I spoke to the stores over the course of the next several weeks as we prepare our stories and as he uploaded the materials that he had obtained aimed I onto my telephone and then ultimately onto the servers of intercept so it was during these two or three weeks conversations when we were preparing our stories as and working with our source that I was prior to the criminal complaint issued this week. A Brazilian Supreme Court justice actually went so far as to order the federal the police to stop investigating you in this case. Why did the judge feel the need to take them measure in the first place? While from the beginning. The Brazilian government has made clear. They don't believe in our free press at all. The president of the country's arable scenario has spent thirty years advocating for a return to the military dictatorship that ruled the country until nineteen the five. He is often railed against press freedoms and shortly after we started our reporting or are experts as that had as their primary target. The Justice Justice Minister the very powerful Justice Minister of the Bosnian government surgery. Moro News leaked from his office that they had initiated an investigation into my personal finances. Dances which everybody knew. Obviously was in retaliation for the reporting and so a central at political party in Brazil went to the Supreme Court and partitioned the Supreme Court for an order barring any investigations into me relating to the reporting that I was doing on the grounds that it was a violation of free crossing. The Supreme Court accepted petition. Ordered all eight law enforcement agencies including the prosecutors Not to investigate me in any way in connection with this reporting on the grounds that it would be an attack on a free press in violation of the constitutional liberty of press freedom and this the judge issued a ruling is now out very angry and publicly saying that what the prosecutor did was a clear violation of the Supreme Court order so just to for those of us who live here in the US who It sounds like this is basically a political or constitutional sort of struggle. That's playing out. There is between the Supreme Court and other branches the government I think that People in the US and more broadly in the West have sometimes had trouble understanding the true nature of the Bolsonaro Movement and presidents. Naro himself in part because the Western media spent two thousand eighteen referring to him as the trump of the tropics is though he was he's just kind of another Donald Trump and people look at the US where Donald Trump is president in obviously see tax on democracy by trump but nonetheless functioning auctioning healthy democracy in the US and conclude the Bulls. Naro must not be that threatening in reality. He's nowhere near Trump in terms of the threats administers he poses to democracy in part because Brazilian democracy is much younger than you asked democracy and therefore much more fragile Glenn before we let you go. How are you you and your family doing you know I think I would be lying if I if I were to deny that. This has been a very difficult by months for my family and and and and for myself. Obviously when you can't leave your house that armed security in our vehicles and you're being threatened by the president of the country with prison and and all the invasiveness that they tried to impose on our private lives it's obviously difficult I think the fact that both David and I went through this in the snowden reporting when we were threatened by the US government he was detained by the UK government in a notorious incident at Heathrow Airport has made it a little bit easier because we'd done something similar over this has been much more difficult but ultimately at the end of the day if you go into journalism these are the kinds of stories you want to do and if you want to confront power inherent in that Is You're going to be subjected to attacks and risks and dangers and so while it's not been easier fun all the time. It's been very gratifying. Brazil does a country. I Love I care about Brazilian democracy. I feel like the journalism are doing is is defending and strengthening it. And that's something bad gives me a sense of purpose that makes.

"The evidence shows that president trump unlawfully withheld military assistance. You raise the so called crowd strike conspiracy theory that Ukraine not Russia had interfered in the two thousand sixteen election president trump was publicly signaling. His interest in the Investigations Rudolph Guiliani. He is a cold blooded. Political operative for president trump's reelection campaign in a new poll shows not only are American sharply divided when it comes to other president. Trump should be removed from office but a sizable percentage fourteen. Fourteen percent. Say They don't know enough to have an opinion at the end of the I believe without question. The President United States Adam Schiff continues to make the same arguments over and over again for trading of you. That's covered this in the house. Today was not a new day it was just a repeat and repeat and repeat the same things that he has been saying for a long the time when it comes to Donald Trump. They're willing to destroy the institution of the office and the name of getting him to go. Great I don't know sort of love. Sit Right there Fredro and stare. They're corrupt faces. I'd love to it's the takeaway Maroon Benigo Paul in for Tanzania Vega House. Democrats are laying out their impeachment case against President Donald Trump in the Senate led by representative. Adam Schiff the house managers presented aspects of their impeachment case late into Wednesday night accusing the president of using his power to pressure the Ukrainian government into helping helping him cheat his way to re-election the president's defense team will have to wait until the Democrats wrap up their opening statements to outline their case against impeachment only after both sides finished inch their arguments and senators ask written questions will lawmakers be able to vote on whether to subpoena witnesses for more on this. We're joined by Jennifer Habur corn who covers Congress for the L. A. Times and Max Kutner journalists covering impeachment the Russia probes the FBI and the Justice Department. Thanks to you both for being on the program. Thank you thank okay. Let's start with you. House managers are laying out their opening arguments without any challenge from other senators or from the White House. Legal team is there. Anything fundamentally fundamentally different between what they're arguing this week versus what we heard during the impeachment hearings in the house around the house process obviously was working towards words impeachment this now in the Senate this is working towards removing trump from office. So this is a lot more consequential and what we heard yesterday from the house managers. That was a lot of what we did already here. And what was in the impeachment investigation report however if this process continues if the Democrats are allowed to call all witnesses review new documents then this will be a much newer process also starting as late as Saturday. We will be hearing from trump's legal team and that we did not get during the house process. Max We're still waiting to hear opening arguments from the president's legal team but we do have a sense of what their case will look like based on a trial memo that they filed what stood out to you in that memo so they are expected to make procedural arguments. They're going to say the house process was was biased. So far this whole impeachment process has been structurally deficient. That's the wording that they used. Then they're expected to make legal arguments. They'll say these articles do not violate the law. They don't stand up to the You know the bar of high crimes and misdemeanors and then there are expected to make political arguments as well in the memo. They said that the Democrats are quote held hostage by a radical left wing. That has foisted on their party. Agenda of socialism. That sounds more like the kind of the thing we here at a trump rally and not so much in a in a legal document. Swipe do think especially depending on which of his legal team members are presenting these arguments. We are going to hear a bit of that. We are going to hear this being used as a time to promote trump. Maybe more political way than a legal way but mainly they're we're gonNA attack these two articles and say that they don't stand up. This isn't what the framers of the Constitution intended now. One of the members of legal team Alan Dershowitz has been pushing the argument that the president needs to be charged with the actual crime to be impeached but most constitutional scholars don't agree with that correct and what's interesting about that. Is that seems to be attacking the process the legality of this whole process and less. Oh the actual facts here so that is less disputing what happened. It's more just disputing that. We should even having this argument to begin with now. Let's hear from a chief justice John Roberts who's presiding over the trial in the Senate. He he had some pointed words for house impeach managers as well as the President's defense team. I think it is appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the house managers and the President's Council in equal terms to remember that they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body one reason it has earned that title is because its members. Avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil civil discourse the world's greatest deliberative body. Nothing like a little triumphalism at a time of severe dysfunction In Congress Jennifer Wide Roberts feel the need to speak out there so that was on Tuesday night. It was getting pretty late at that point. I think it was about one. AM and lawyers. There's on both sides. We're getting pretty testy Jerry Nadler said that the Senate was engaged in a cover up By not participating in the witness subpoena the process that really rankled Republican senators. They told me yesterday that they were really offended by that comment. But the president's lawyers responded as well what kind of going back and forth between them Obviously at that point. That's a trial The lawyers are going up one after the other. So we're seeing both outsides. Unlike right now and we're you know we really have the presentation from house. Democrats three days in a row and then trump lawyers three days in a row So that happened and Chief Justice made this admonishment and frankly a lot of senators. This was a good idea. From the chief justice to try to tamp down the temperature and in in fact yesterday the tone was a lot more somber and Adam Schiff. They'll eat house. Impeachment manager started the day yesterday by you. Know really really laying it on thick for senators thanking them for their time and their patients today before So perhaps they're getting closer to that world's greatest deliberative body uh-huh well so far Jennifer. The Senate hasn't voted to allow witnesses to participate in trauma. The impeachment managers have been playing video clips of several key witnesses. who were part of the House? Inquiry like Gordon Sunland and few and a hill is re airing those clubs helpful to the Democratic Strategy. Here you know I think it may be I've been in the chamber in the press gallery watching a lot of the arguments yesterday and I mean senators. We're watching the video Showing onto television screens in the Senate so house Democrats might not be able to get those witnesses to testify Live in front of the Senate or even in a new deposition but They're making those witnesses testimony known to senators and that that could have an effect Senators are in that chamber for long hours listening to Adam ship. Jerry Nadler and the other House Democrats talk but They're seeing the festival from those windows as well next. There was speculation this week week. That a witness deal. That is the testimony of Hunter Biden son of Vice President Joe Biden for someone like former national security adviser. John Bolton it Democrats shot down those rumors yesterday. Where does that leave the likelihood of testimony from officials like John Bolton well? I don't think that much has changed in the past. Twenty four or forty eight hours since the senators Initially said that they were not going to allow the body to subpoena these new witnesses subpoena for documents they. We are going to be considering those motions to do so again. After these two twenty four hour periods after the arguments that is so if anything changes then there will be that opportunity to call those witnesses a lot of Republicans were speaking to reporters yesterday saying that that would only drag out the process and so it seems unlikely that that what will happen And and certainly Democrats yesterday. Were saying that as as Adam Schiff put it. This isn't a fantasy football trade. There's not going to be this sort of witness trade and so without any sort of leverage or a trade off I can't imagine republicans changing their minds from from what we found the other day. Jennifer the rules rules governing impeachment proceedings are pretty outdated Senator supposed to remain in the chambers for the entirety of the arguments and trial. Have they actually been following these. ooh pretty much yes We've seen a lot of senators. Kinda get FIDGETY. And Ansi and they go to stand up in the back of the chamber or They're passing notes. Let's with their colleagues are getting candy but Yeah the rules are pretty outdated. They can only have milk or water on their desk. No coffee There were actually two senators that I spotted with milk which I was not really expecting Senator Tom Cotton and Senator Richard Burr. And you know we saw Dianne Feinstein after about an hour early yesterday. Her spokesman so that she wasn't feeling well but for the most part senators have been in there but the brakes are kind of increasing as we get later into the day. Now it is easy to feel entirely cynical about this process on the inside. Does it feel like that or does it feel like people are genuinely grappling with these arguments and trying to do the ride by Congress You know a little bit of both And I've asked senators that you know they repeatedly said.

"It would just make you show up. Astronaut Mike Mike Look McConnell's master and he and he. He knows that he has to give some room to some senators right. And that's what his job is so if he takes the hardest line possible. He's now drawing the line where he can move from to give them some room without having that room be something. That's damaging artful thing that he's the best. There is only a little to get a little. What's interesting about that is people? Were wondering well then. Why did they push for this? His two-day timeframe of twenty four hours to make their arguments were told it was the White House who initially push for that because they feared that if we were going late into the night like we are tonight that they could potentially not not start their arguments if it says three day period until Saturday than it would be broken up by Sunday and then they'd have to not make their arguments and consecutive periods. They don't think that their coverage abuse strong since it wouldn't during the week at the beginning of this trial and now it looks if Democrats do take up there fulltime that that's what the White House will be working with if they're making their arguments Saturday Monday and Tuesday instead of what they had hoped for. He can say that he can tell the White House while I did what I tried to do it right. I put it out there exactly the way that you wanted it. Maybe knowing full well that he was gonNA get push back from his members and he was going to have to capitulate and that was going to be good for them. But I want to read the Senate is about to take an amendment and I'm I'm GonNa read it It would require that if journey impeachment trial Donald J trump any party seeks to admit evidence. That's not been submitted as part of the record of the House of Representatives and that was subject subject we duly authorized subpoena that parties shall also provide the opposing party. All other documents response to that subpoena. What is yeah? I think it's I mean look. I think they're trying to get documents and the PROB- There's they're looking at various ways to get documents in this isn't just we're talking a lot about the witnesses and how much we want to hear from what does but the documents critical as well so. That was one of the gifts that that McConnell gave this. It's morning which was instead of initially. He had said all the stuff. The house evidence is not automatically going to be admitted. He's now now changed that saying somebody who can somebody can object to it being admitted but otherwise it will be admitted. WH which is really. There's one man you would know better than me on this. But there was there was an issue that came up before the House of Representatives over an official document. It's sort of the case. And then some of the managers started talking about things that weren't in it and so there was a question raise. That should the chief justice justice not ruled that out of order. Because you're talking about harness and they're sort of going off on very political arguments. That aren't a part of the case that the House Democrats together which which is at the heart of what this problem is. The House Democrats created a case without calling these witnesses or getting these documents. They claim they had a bunch of reasons. But the fact is they didn't do. It was a a big reason but shift was just arguing. They could have gone to court and shift was just arguing. Shift was just arguing. He was bragging we went to court over Don mcgann and we one in court. Well that's very interesting. What an amazing tactic that is the house had the responsibility to put this together? You said this was different from Clinton I I worked for Newt Gingrich during the Clinton payment Mr Schumer argued during the Clinton impeachment against witnesses and against new documents because it has been handled in the house who have the responsibility responsibility for. My point is back to this thing. I think that this may be a way for Schumer to try and say we're we want to talk about things that weren't in this and as long as we share it with both people we can talk about. It may not being out to play the game of talking about who said what in nineteen ninety dollars because that is a game that every Republican said both the stage both managers have done tonight literally both sides of the of the Senate Judiciary Committee also point out that they should go to the courts to resolve this that actually contradicts what the DOJ has been been arguing when they've been saying that they want to get there trying to essentially avoid these subpoenas DOJ attorneys have been saying actually. It's not up to the courts to resolve this dispute. They should work it out on their our own. And that's actually not what Jaysekulow in the president's other attorneys arguing. They were saying well. If you actually really wanted these people you would let the courts resolve it and let it be a judicial decision decision. But that's not what we've been seeing argued by. Doj You compare one thousand nine hundred ninety given the fact that President Clinton didn't walk in the door from the first day and say I'm not going to comply with this. We're not gonNA make anyone also colonel referrals. So that's a whole other talk in the nineteen ninety. Nine K file dug up undescended. McConnell said back in one thousand nine hundred featuring trial keep in mind what the center has been saying about hearing from witnesses. This time around. This is to expand the both sides have been doing this. Sort of stuff Do we happened was we were entitled witnesses. I voted for live witnesses myself. I voted for the one live witness. A House has for and and Voted to allow the videotaping of the witnesses that they asked for In addition to that we had is the Democrats continually reminded us a mountain of evidence In the independent counsel's report. I think we had enough information to make a decision. I think it was overwhelmingly clear. What happened here again? The the different case different times different arguments on both sides of switched on these things and the public. That isn't doesn't have their feet in concrete at our partisans on each side sees it for what it is is these are all politicians. They switch sides. When it's convenient this is all about the election? Except that's how they view this whole thing. It's a big partisan thing about the elected Democrats didn't really switch. Sides is because they were witnesses in the house. So it's not the same thing. There aren't witnesses this time because it's it's it's a different situation and I don't agree that you should have to get a court order to get the president into Mike. Do you agree that. The strategy by the trump administration of just a blanket non-cooperation is different than Dan. Nine hundred ninety nine is different than what has happened in pry in. We're Ronald Reagan. Telling people just go up and I think there are some circumstances that are different it. It's it's successful strategy. I mean this is a Lou g every defense lawyer will tell you that every type their their jobs to defend their client come up with things until someone tells them. They can't do it a judge says you can't do that. Defend their client success governing strategy. I mean if if if the house can house that has a role here. Congress has a role here future. It sure does the there are things that the Obama administration fought over with Republicans. Right for those were. Those were specific things. As opposed to administration in History Obama. The Clinton Bush Carter whatever has has taken the position the blanket position that number one executive privilege applies to every single word. That has ever said. Even though it's never been invoked it's never been go ahead. The other point is the cover. UPS Don't work ultimately they come unraveled. You know did bones going to write a book. Do you think he's GonNa leave stuff out. That would really help to lead book and he probably knows. Some things won't be helpful to the president. I think that's probably a good chance. Other a person is the short term although government can work in short term and the long term. They don't tell you tend not to work. I'm not sure the bulletin thing I just find fascinating because I just again a and it seems like Democrats are putting a lot of faith in thinking they know what he's GonNa say just because he called it a drug deal if he wants it. I mean you could take a cynical view and say well look. WHO's doing in this book for is it? is He wanting mass audiences by this or is he wanting a conservative audience by this that he's going to go on the conservative lecture and have a person Fox News as the savior of the president resident. Who wanted to testify wasn't able to and then wrote a book absolves? The right now is a conservative. You've got a good book you've got a good chance to be number one right. Well that's true. They also when he talked about a drug deal he said Mulvaney and Sunland. He didn't say the president and so I do think people are hesitant that he may be ready to spill the beans on the president. Don't forget he's still so raising money for Republicans however some people have said that Mick Mulvaney and Mike pompeo could be potential targets for John Bolton I think another thing on the the witnesses though that I thinks shows a lack of seriousness for the Republicans is this kind of retaliatory witness. Right this idea that if you get your witnesses the we're going to bring in people that have really nothing into do with this. We're going to bring in Hunter Biden. That has nothing to do with the case that they're actually how it's supposed to be you're supposed to bring people in who can ADDS something that's Germane to the case at hand. The reason I like it is it's kind of punk rock because it is. It is a recognition of the entire thing now now and so the Democrats try to wear this mantle of sort of being respectful when the entire thing is political from the very beginning on their behalf. Which is why Senator Schumer or knows he's GonNa lose all these things and he wants to get every record every senator on record as you stated the ways I love you is that I want I look at you? I think popcorn. You're representing punk rock hair club. They just got a call to order. It was supposed to be a five minute break about a twenty minute break but it just been called to order. They're now going to be starting to talk. Talk about this Move before by Schumer. Let's listen it.

You'll notice that the amendment they're voting on now was about out to AIDS that they want to have subpoenaed as witnesses and so at least that's combining to people we really don't know. How many amendments Mensah Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has under his belt? But you remember maybe an hour and a half ago. There was an exchange on the floor between the minority leader Schumer and majority leader. Mitch McConnell all with McConnell saying you know maybe we can find a way to move forward more quickly on this. These amendments are similar.

Williams we should point out once workforce in our Schumer on the judiciary committee where he served served a Committee Council Kaitlan Collins with us as well tonight along with senior political analyst Pearson powers and former RNC chief of staff. Mike shiels David Gergen. It's going to be if I want to hear the debate over Bolton which we anticipate if they decide to continue tonight we'll be probably coming up next because that is clearly where there is the most refocused. He's probably the best known name. Among the four that Democrats would like to see come and test them absolutely even though Democrats tied thing. Don't really know it all. We'll say that would so fast nobody does. But they're but they're hell bent again right overall. Good were I mean it could play against them you could. I mean the end of the day. They may wonder how do we we Kinda you'd think of you acquired deposition before they want to go cliff. It's the only thing lawyers say the you Never WanNa ask them questions on the witness a witness who you don't know what exactly they have no idea what the answer I thought the Democrats were very smart today. This first day they went for substance right in the opening stage. They didn't go to process. They talk they laid out the case behind the whole effort and a night which is probably going to get the one of the biggest audiences first time the the senators have heard all of that and I thought they were very smart to go for that. And for the witnesses. They've created the situation. Now that it's a hard call if you call the Republicans now vote to call call witnesses. They're voting for the unpredictable but if they don't go for witnesses seventy percent of the country the thinks they're wrong. That's not a good choice and Elliott there to to David's point about what the Democrats are doing. There's a reason Chuck Schumer didn't agree besides animosity To to not just kind of lump all these requests in Senate wants and just get it over with they want to play it out person by person yes mick Mulvaney witnesses Bolton and they wanna get details details about the documents that they want from different agencies. Not what they've been doing. They've been using this time to talk about specific so it's not just as Adam Schiff for saying you know thousands of documents kind of generic documents. It's actually specific things. These are why we need this particular document and put each of the fifty three Senate Republicans on the record saying that. They don't want the documents that you know. You can't compare this to nine hundred ninety nine because of the fact that they're just haven't been documents and you know you made the point point earlier you know lawyers say don't answer. Don't ask a question. I don't know the answer to get the witnesses. You can't even ask the questions if you don't have the witnesses and so you've been hearing a lot from the Democrats today about how you can't have a proceeding. You can't have a trial if you don't have witnesses. And I think the strategy as David said is put the Republicans lukens on the record and make the case that this actually is a bit of a cover up because you have not heard from. I think nine subpoenaed agency witnesses thousands Tens of thousands of pages of documents that they requested and again. This is far outside of the norm of any past impeachment proceeding. That we've seen there have been that madame but but at least in the past ones. He passed from from the White House attorneys. We've been hearing from Pam Bondi a lot of a similar kind of talk that we hear from the White House itself in the same sort of arguments almost like I mean. Clearly they believe the president is going to be watching from time to time. It's the wee hours of the morning in Switzerland so it's unclear clear story. Let's go back to Chuck Schumer provide appropriate handling of classified confidential materials. And I asked that it be read. It's short clerk. Report port the senator from New York. Mr Schumer proposes an amendment number twelve ninety on page two between lines four and five insert the following if during the impeachment trial of Donald John Trump. Any party seeks to admit evidence that has not been submitted as part of the record of the House of Representatives resentatives and that was subject to duly authorized subpoena. That party shall also provide the opposing party all the other documents responsive to that subpoena China for the purposes of this paragraph the term duly authorized subpoena includes any subpoena issued pursuant to the impeachment inquiry of the House of Representatives. The Senate shell take all necessary measures to ensure the proper handling of confidential and classified information in the record. Majority leaders recognized shelters when. I'll take a five minute break. Like ask everybody just say close to the chamber. We'll go with a hard hard five minutes that we stand in recess Soviet call chair without objection so ordered. Oh.

"Doesn't seem to Jive live with where we are on a political sphere in this country and how how divided the country and polarize. The country really is But next week and and the following week will be will be instrumental and seeing how this moves forward and how it sits with the American public. I do have to say as you were watching Nancy. Pelosi they're signed the articles. Think about where we were a year ago just over a year ago where Donald Trump himself. The president himself was even weighing in when there was a question and infighting within the Democratic Party as to whether she should be their next leader and he was nudging that that yes she should be because in fact she had spoken out about not wanting to go down the route of impeachment and he knew that and here we are A year later there was some question as to whether she could be the the effective active speaker of the House by Democrats. I know a lot of Democrats would probably sighing a breadth of relief that she in fact is the leader and the way she's handled this I it's. It's not something that she would have preferred. She said this many times but she says that she was doing what she had to do. Given the circumstances in the latest developments out of in Ukraine. We now know Jeffrey. The prosecution's The prosecution team the seven house managers that were named by the Speaker Nancy. Pelosi led led by Adam Schiff. But we're not exactly clear what what about the president's legal defense how that's going to unfold. They still haven't made any formal announcements. Percents no I mean the only two lawyers we know for sure our pets Baloney. Who is the White House counsel who has not appeared in public at all as far as I'm aware of during his tenure as White House counsel He hasn't testified before Congress. He hasn't gone on television. And I I you know how much donald trump cares cares about how things look on television that I think is will be a real challenge for him. The other lawyers Jaysekulow who is is a very experienced. Supreme Court advocate also very experienced television performer. I think The president will be very comfortable with seculars. Pillows were all and then the question is who else will there be house members will. Will there be Jim Jordan. Will he wear a jacket the floor of the Senate. I mean all of those her unresolved Jeffrey at this point. You know that. The president's other private attorney Rudy Giuliani has publicly made it clear. He wants to be part of this team. We can only hope aw. He will be simultaneously under investigation by the Southern District of New York. And the one of the president's lawyers during a AH trial on the floor of the Senate. My sense is That's not going to happen but my sense has been wrong about this and many other things so we I shall see as far as you know Jamie is. This is the Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell and the White House the President United States on the same page right now as far as the tone they want to see in the Senate trial. I don't want to go out on a limb here. Under no circumstances are they the same page Mitch. McConnell Donald Trump trump two very different people very different style. But it's McConnell show correct absolutely and in the end you will say to the president you. Can't you have the votes now. Don't mess about everybody. I want you all to stand by. We're watching history unfold here at the U._S. Congress..

"Hi Everyone I'm poppy harlow. We're out with a new boss files episode fashion designer. I leaned Fisher. She sees her brand as a platform and her employees are encouraging her to stand up on social issues including climate chain. She's a leading leading voice on environmental sustainability in the fashion industry. Also her take on profit sharing she owns sixty percent of her company and her employees own the rest plus her advice for all of us as parents out there what she wishes she done differently as a mother and how Eileen Fisher uses meditation the guide her work and her life here at all. I'm Bastille subscribe today. Ah clearly give me the pen that we use in the signing ceremony that the chairman of relevant committees as well as the house managers who will be walking over to the Senate for this deliberate. We're told the delivery won't actually happen. The Senate will then inform these expenditures to come back for a formal ceremony. That is expected. Tomorrow Amano Raja is with us. He's been watching this very very closely after interrupt you but walk us through what we anticipate. Now Yeah right after this when the seven managers impeachment managers are expected to walk from that room on the house side of the Capitol with the articles of impeachment. We've impeachment articles will be. He delivered a be carried by the clerk of the House. To Cook of the House is actually going to go and signed the documents herself as well and she will carry those over win blue folder folder. We're told from the house side to the Senate side. They will also be accompanied by the House Sergeant Arms. They'll go first from the from where they are. Now that the statuary hall the capital into the capital capital Tunda and at that point arrive in the Senate side of the Capitol. That's where things may get a little interesting. Because that House the Senate Republicans Mitch McConnell's Connell's office is making clear that they will formally accept the articles of impeachment tonight because of the process that is laid out under Senate procedures essentially the process. Is this the house house and clerk will read aloud a message before the Senate saying the house is ready to deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate and has named its impeachment managers. At that point the Senate will send a message back to the house saying come back tomorrow. And that point they can formally present their articles of impeachment and read aloud from the articles of impeachment. Allow those those impeded managers to do just that tomorrow now. So we'll see what exactly happens at that point when the articles which had we'll be carried across the capital when the Senate essentially says come back the next day. We'll see it out of the house. Democrats respond to that because it house Democrats will be there. Will they walk on the House floor to they do have floor privileges. Privileges is on the Senate side of the Capitol. So presumably they'll walk into the Senate but they won't be formally recognized in any way but again this procedural aspects the ceremonial aspects expects of this trial before they get into the real nitty gritty and the substance of the trial next week and deal with all those thorny issues witnesses by whether to consider new evidence whether to consider new records and senators themselves sitting as jurors. Consider all of that next week as we get to this move by Nancy Pelosi signing these documents setting the stage for for historic in unpredictable trial and the Senate that could take weeks wolf is certainly could Although the Republicans would like to do it as quickly as possible maybe two weeks or so a I heard the speaker say today. We will make history this after she says president trump did not uphold his oath of office as a result. He was impeached impeached by the House of Representatives. Those two articles of impeachment This is history unfolding only the third time in American history that we're seeing these kinds of developments. Yeah that's right and it's ceremonial. The one thing I will say as we were watching it we're used to seeing Signing ceremonies handing being out pens at moments of celebration when a president is signing legislation When even sometimes the rare occasion but it has happened when the House sends over over a landmark piece of legislation It was it was unusual to see that kind of Ceremony and making handing out the pens and smiling for a picture in this kind of situation where the House Speaker has bent over backwards to save publicly and privately privately sambre. This is not a time for a celebration understandable. This is history and the people who are involved. Want to mark the moment. But I didn't expect to see that. Yeah I thought that was a little jarring and certainly I think off-message because you heard Nancy Pelosi their say in fact that this was a sad and tragic day in there she is holding holding up the pin in having photographs. Taken with those Pinzel. Yeah I think it was a little off message for someone who has tried to set a very serious tone in in here. She is posing for photographs with a pan so probably not the new chairman in the house. Managers they will. They'll have those pens for the rest of their lives absolutely in the end. They're politicians and in the end. Nancy Pelosi knows her caucus and that this was a part of history that they would all. Aw like a piece of that said this was the last time. She's really able to speak about this not that she won't talk about it in public but this was the last formal time and she really the tone was up until the signing the town was very solemn. The words that she chose today we will make history. We're now showing our viewers live pictures. Those documents now are being taken can from the House of Representatives Three Statuary Hall that Statuary Hall right there. They'll be going into the capital Rotunda to the Senate to present the articles of impeachment. The the secretary of the Senate who will then inform them. You know what come back tomorrow. Go ahead just the words that she chose were very careful. Today we will make history. She talked about abuse of power that she wanted to make sure the president. It was clear that he would be held accountable and that no president is above the law. I think the other the thing we were talking about the managers there we have seven managers and six of the seven are lawyers and val demings is a sheriff and Very tough I think. She picked a group that legally would know what elect to do but also represent the party. This is a Dan. Just remind our viewers the house clerk of the House. Sergeant Argenta volumes. They are. They're leading this procession followed by the Seventh House. Manager is the chairman. Adam Schiff the chairman of the Intelligence Committee Jerry. Nadler Adler the chairman of the judiciary. Committee's lofgren of California Akeem Jeffries of New York Val demings of Florida she. She was Orlando's first. Female email chief of police Jason Crowe of Colorado and Sylvia Garcia. And then. Sorry to interrupt. But they're walking right now. They're walking by the old Senate Chamber As they make their way to the current Senate Chamber and it's just a reminder reminds me and those of us who are around twenty one years ago. It's the old Senate chamber that back then. All One hundred senators agreed in a bipartisan. Way unanimously to the rules of the road of that impeachment. How different is now now? They're walking past Mitch McConnell's office. FSN Cheryl Johnson the house clerk. WHO's holding those two articles of impeachment? That were signed with all those pens by the speaker of the house They're why this is history. This is history unfolding right now. A polar sergeant of arms is escalating them as well a big day for this country a big day for this White House and in many ways a day. Some people thought would never happen in Indiana talking about this early. Nancy Pelosi was never someone who was on board with this and then everything came to a head with this Ukraine scandal. Until now we have a time when I it just hurt third time in this nation's history that president is GonNa face an impeachment and trial in the Senate to and You keep hearing Nancy Pelosi seen forever and ever this is a president. That will be impeached. Manoa we're not showing your viewers some live pictures from the US. Senate you were mentioning before that The hustle managers as well as the the clerk and the sergeant of arms of the House awesome representatives. And there you see them they'll be walking. They're about to walk in to the Senate. Yeah the right about to walk into the Senate they do have floor privileges so we'll see if they walk. Can you can see the house.

"This is CNN breaking news. I'm wolf in the situation room. And we're following breaking news historic impeachment developing and developments unfolding up on Capitol Hill right now at any moment. The newly appointed the house impeachment managers. They will begin walking the two articles of impeachment against President trump across the US capital to deliver them to the US Senate but even at this hour even at this hour. It's still unclear how this will all play out in the next hour or so. Let's go straight to Capitol Hill right right now. Our senior Congressional Maharaja has been speaking to everyone mono based on what you know right now. It's still a bit of a mystery. Walk us through what we anticipate sophy happen. Yeah just a matter of minutes here. Nancy Pelosi the House Speaker will go before the cameras and signed the formal records that would lead to the transmission of the articles of impeachment. You want to the Senate. She'll be flanked by the impeachment. Managers the seven individuals. She selected today will prosecute the case on behalf of the House. Democrats after she signs The papers then the house clerk will sign papers as well and then afterwards a procession will occur in which they will march from the managers will march along with the house clerk in the Senate and the House Sergeant at arms from the House side of the Capitol through Statuary Hall in the capital to the Capitol Rotunda up until the house until the Senate doors. Now this I of course would be the last time this happened was nine hundred. Ninety nine the Clinton trials along the Senate and house procedures are still a bit murky debating a lot of the procedures procedures as they go. A lot of the things are not written in stone so there will be some unpredictable. Bill how this will actually play out but wolf is a historic moment about to unfold and just just a matter of moments imposing doesn't fact sign those articles and then we'll start to move into the trial phase and then after these ceremonial aspects. Take Place today and tomorrow. That's at the art of the actual substance of this case will be argued on both sides. Starting Tuesday we'll we'll take that we're showing our viewers Amano live pictures of the Roeber Iruma on the house side of the US capital. This is a historic room. Where a lot of a lot of major events of unfolded yet no question and also oh throughout the courses impeachment inquiry itself after the house impeached as president in late December hand? Nancy Pelosi went to this very room made her case. It's about why the president should be impeached at the time questions were asked by me and others about when he was articles would actually be delivered to the Senate. She had not indicated for some time. Hi when that would happen so he said that. I said she wanted understand that the sun was going to have what she considered a fair process. Then she said she wanted to understand what the arena was in which her managers would going prosecute. The case ultimately decided late last week that they would release the articles of impeachment this week. And so this after weeks of back and forth between Pelosi Mitch McConnell The Senate Majority Leader Xi agreed to move forward and agree to set the stage for this historic trial. which will begin in earnest? Starting next week. We'll so so-called Grossman the ceremony takes place here in the Rayburn Room and we're showing our viewers these live pictures the Seven house managers led by the chief US manager. Adam Schiff the chairman of the Intelligence Committee. They will walk over to the Senate together as you point out the house clerk sergeant of arms but then what happens next because it seems a bit a bit murky Erkki. Yeah some back and forth in discord between the House. Democrats and Senate Republicans as we kick off this trial. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell's office is saying right. Now they will not formally officially receive the articles of impeachment from the House. The reason why is this essentially they say there's a two step process that has to occur i. The House has to actually deliver a message to the Senate and that message is they are. They have appointed their impeachment managers. And they're ready to deliver the articles of impeachment. Then the Senate has to send a message back to the house saying it is ready to receive those impeachment articles and they are going to say that tomorrow will be when those peace articles it can be formerly presented in the Senate and then tomorrow is when they're managed Peterman managers will actually read from the articles of impeachment themselves. Make the case about why. The president read the text of the articles of impeachment. And then after that then these chief justice of the Supreme Court will be sworn in John. Roberts I will preside over. The case and senators were acting as jurors. All hundred of them will be sworn in after the fact but they nevertheless Nancy Pelosi's office as saying that they were still walk over today with those two articles of impeachment. They'll be in a blue folder. which will be held by the house clerk? They walked from the house side. The Senate side but that folder that it contains the articles of impeachment according to Mitch. McConnell's office opie formally accepted until tomorrow. So it'll be interesting to see exactly how this plays out because the House Democrats Democrats believe essentially that they will be delivering these. It'll be transmitted officially today. Senate Republicans they not quite there yet so some uncertainty in the final stages here but no uncertainty about this. The trial will begin next week when his arguments begin as we get through these procedural and ceremonial aspects of the proceedings. Well we've seen the photographers of arrived a lot OUTTA staff members of arrived This is a moment that a lot of people in the House of Representatives. The Democrats have been waiting for Jamie Angle. You've been following this very very closely. What do you -ticipant? We will see as explained. It's still a little bit up in the air. But what do you anticipate. We'll see in the next hour. There's there's a word that I think goes along with what mom who is describing and that is power play. This has been in Nancy Pelosi's court in her house. And now it is being handed over to Mitch. McConnell where the Republicans control The speed the time and so he is exerting his influence Now I think we will see at about five thirty. I was told The managers walk over over and then they will have delivered it. And then there is the bureaucratic Sort of tussle here of when it's officially accepted. I do think wolf. It's worth thing you know remembering what was said today when those managers went to the floor because we are seeing history. Here we're seeing. This orchestrated playing out this drama of them walking across. But you also heard some politics today. You heard Jerry Nadler. Talk about You can't a trial without witnesses is is not a trial. It's a cover up and so they're gonNA be playing both sides of this. Let's talk a little bit about these seven house managers. That were named the speaker today. Led by Adam Schiff the chairman of the Intelligence Committee. Jerry Nadler the chairman of the Judiciary Committee is no Lofgren. Came Jeffries representative Val demings Jason Crowe and Sylvia Garcia. It's a pretty pretty impressive grew. Yeah it's a powerful group of people. I think represent the diversity of the Democratic Party in all are also litigators right they have experience in courtrooms. Zoe lofgren somebody. WHO's who has experienced with past impeachments? You think about somebody like Val De means a law enforcement officer from from Orlando Florida. So I think that's what Nancy Pelosi was thinking. How do you get a group of that can actually try a case? Put on a case in Beetham familiar with the details of these cases of this case of these people. Obviously from some of the committees that tried this case and brought forward witnesses so in that respect I think if you're the Democratic Caucus you're happy with this. There was some speculation that somebody like just a mosh who voted to four. These impeachment articles might be named. He's an independent homer republican up but that is something that didn't happen. Some Democrats want that to happen. Nancy Pelosi said it wasn't something that she really considered. So you've got this group here and people like Shift obviously been out front in this as well as Nadler their job. They're the prosecutors persecutors Dan on the they're going to go forward once. The formal trial begins on Tuesday in the days that follow. They'll have to go before the United States. Senate the chief. Justice is this of the Supreme Court who will be presiding and they will have to make the argument why the president of the United States was impeached and now should be convicted and removed moved from office. That's right there are a lot of differences between this impeachment. Trial any impeachment trial and a quarter of of law but there are a lot of similarities and the biggest for people who are familiar with How court battles work and how court cases work whether you're watching L.? A. Lor anywhere else. you Or or law and order you are looking at the prosecutors as you said those. Are The house managers. They are making the case and they're trying to convince the jury and the jury or one hundred senators hundred senators sitting there listening to the case that the house managers slash prosecutors make and then the defense is the president's team. We don't know who's on that team yet. Besides his chief counsel inside the White House Cyclo a lawyer outside the White House. WHO'S GONNA fill out bad team There's a lot of pressure on him by his supporters and backwards in the house to include some of the house. Republicans that that we saw make the case so forcefully during the house house deliberations. We're GONNA see if that happens. But that's what we expect once. This trial actually gets underway in earnest. Rest next week Jeffrey. Toobin we won't know whether or not there will be witnesses or new documents will be submitted new evidence coming forward until after the the opening arguments from both sides are delivered. That's correct and that could take several days if the schedule works the way it did. In the Clinton trial both sides will have twenty four hours of time in the courtroom that is the Senate To to make their case an answer written questions from the senators so it will probably be on the order of three or four days before. There's even a vote on whether Whether to hear hear from witnesses and I think this presents a particular challenge for the house managers. Because they'll be doing kind of a dual task They will be making the case that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors but they will also be making the case that in order to make a fair evaluation of.

"Day for the country. The impeachment of president trump now in the hands of the Senate joining us again for a look ahead scene and congressional correspondent Phil Mattingly so tomorrow Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell drinking house impeach managers managers back at noon to the Senate. What happens from there? So you're gonNA see a similar procession Anderson all seven members of the Senate. The House manager team will come back over to the United State Senate when they reach there they will be announced and then they will take to the Senate floor and they will read the articles of impeachment after they conclude that Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. John Roberts will come over around a two PM. He will be sworn in then he will proceed to swear in all one hundred senators they will send a summons to the president of the United States informing him that he's been impeached. Ask Him MM for response and Essentially Anderson. That will be it for the week. It's all teeing up next week. When the real trial will start in earnest presentations potentially witnesses later on in the process but but for now ceremony procedure locking everything in before everything gets started next week? And what about Chief Justice Roberts how big a role he actually play. It's a fascinating question for some. We've all been trying to figure out if you go back to nineteen ninety nine. Kind of the most recent precedent chief justice rehnquist really took a passive role the chief justice could have a very major important substantive substantive role if he wants it but Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell has made clear he expects John Roberts to really mimic what he saw in one thousand nine hundred nine with Chief Justice Rehnquist which is be passive allowed the senators to handle any of the questions. They want but the toughest questions if they come up. Chief Justice Roberts has the ability and the means to rule on those questions however the expectation is at least at this point he will largely defer to the Senate which would mean votes which means a simple majority of fifty one votes would essentially dictate how things move in this trial. uh-huh it's also going to be interesting because cameras are subordinates. Abandon the Supreme Court hearings is not going to be the case during the Senate trial with with Roberts. It's a different ball game. Everything he does is going to be on camera. Except for the deliberations of the senators and keep in mind. His team has been preparing for this. Just like the president's defense team just like the house managers have been. They have been coming over back and forth United States Senate preparing for making sure. He's got office space. Everything's being set up for a very different process than he's used to Anderson all right. Thanks very much get some sleep. News continues one hundred over Chris. Cuomo prime-time Chris..

"house manager" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360

"Over the Aligarh on national TV. I probably a liar on national. Let's not do it right now. One of the discussion. We'll have that discussion. You call meal you told me. Let's not get by just wanted to hybrid good okay. She walked away without a handshake after intentionally. Trying to deescalate the fight earlier in the debate Bernie is my friend and I am not not here to try to fight with Bernie but Warren wanted to make a point that a woman can win the presidency. It was one of the most memorable lines of the night. Look at the men on on this stage collectively. They have lost ten elections the only people on this stage who have won every single election that they've been in are the women women. They were sparring over a comment. Warren says Sanders made during a private meeting in two thousand eighteen. That a woman couldn't win the White House. Sanders strongly denied ever making such such an assertion. It's a matter of fact I didn't say and I don't WanNa waste a whole lot of time on this because this is what Donald Trump may be some of the media want anybody. Nobody knows me knows that comprehensible than I would think that a woman could be president of the United States in the moment. Warren disagreed the waited more than in an hour later until after the debate to accuse sanders of calling her a liar now we reached out to the campaigns all day long and again tonight once we went went through this audio Anderson and neither campaign wanted to give a comment on this we caught up with Senator Sanders on Capitol Hill. Today he did not want to talk about this at all. One thing is clear both sides is. We're trying to deescalate. This feud on the debate stage but it clearly did not work now is. It's escalated once again. I'm told that they did not speak today. but they we'll be side by side in close proximity Tomorrow at that Senate impeachment trial Anderson and just just six point how the audio how we got this audio oh you. Now why Anderson. We saw play out. We couldn't hear it play out but My colleagues here at CNN spent the day looking through backup audio. It was recorded from the primary audio system. It was a backup a separate system and they found it a late today. We listen to it. We matched it with a video. So that's how we're able able to Reveal this moment so certainly interesting nineteen days before the Iowa caucuses. They are going after some of the same voters here. The progressive voters we will see how this feud continues. It's also a drink. Just because they were they were miked. It was literally the debate. The applause was still going on and they were aware there were miked ached and warn went over and had this exchange with the camera moving right past them and it was so interesting when we watched all of that she had nice. Words was to save for Joe Biden. Shed Nice words say time star Buddha judge and in an instant she saw senator sanders there went directly to him and accused him of calling her a liar on national television television and he was taken aback by. Obviously you can see there. And then he essentially said the same thing accused her of causing liar. So this debate I think will continue between the two of them and we should say that they had a nonaggression pact for more than a year. Perhaps it's surprising at held this long. It clearly is not in effect. Now Anderson Jeff Zeleny. Thanks very much Sony Sound. CNN Political Director David Chalian CNN. Cheap political analysts. Gloria Borger. Gloria I mean clearly. It seemed like on the debate stage. This was kind of maybe put away because neither used the opportunity while they were in the midst of the debate to kind of go back and forth on this but clearly sanders. I had something. She wanted to say to Sanders. Yeah I mean she made a beeline for him at the end of that debate. And you know Anderson you know we were talking about it last night. We were trying to get Tom. Tom Steiner to tell us what they were saying because he was he was hovering over them. And I think when you when you look at this. It really is a pretty significant development in this this campaign the two progressive candidates as Jeff was pointing out. Who had really tried not to get in each other's way during this campaign and suddenly have exploded into this barrage of name calling saying you call me a liar? No you call me a liar and the question I I think we all have is. How are they going to resolve this? Are they going to resolve this I know we've tried to figure out whether they spoke to each other today. And we as Jeff have points out. It seems that they haven't and what a progressives do I mean. These are their standard bearers and suddenly. They're not arguing over the issues but they're arguing over. Who said what to WHO David? There's two things that are so interesting to me about this exchange in the audio on one is that it's so real. It's it's not. There's no I mean this is people who have been in the public eye who had been on the campaign trail a lot. This is two people talking in a very real way with each other. And also I can't say that Senator Warner was not aware that her mic was on and and I mean we'd take up audio all the time from after the debate people on the stage talking do talking to each other shaking hands what they say when they're shaking hands right. I mean she knew the cameras were there and knew the Mikes were still on. Yeah I mean you see that. At the end of every debate you can hear them sometimes greet their spouses. They come up or edgy said greet supporters So clearly she wasn't aiming to have this conversation entirely in private. But you can also as you said it was so real the moment I mean her her. I want to describe her frustration. Her anger her Desire to have make this point To Bernie Sanders was crystal clear. And what I find so interesting Anderson is it is not at all how she wanted to handle it in the debate. So so you're talking talking about Real moment among politicians. Maybe they sound a little different there than we normally hear them on the stump but during that debate is jeff went up. They were trying to deescalate. She wanted She said a Burmese. My friend that's a totally different approach than what she took at the end of this at the end of the debate here and I think that indicates that perhaps she didn't think having this moment even though you're right she knew she was on stage and right after the debate but she did not desire to have this moment front and center in the debate itself which to to me suggests. Maybe she doesn't think it plays well politically for her or for the Progressive Movement. More broadly or both That's why I think she was trying to have an interaction with him. After and clearly this was a private dinner that they had had a year ago or so so whatever was revealed about it by a variety of sources and there were a number of sources on this It came from you. You know either somebody in that room or somebody who the people in that route. The two people in that room talk to about it right and now you have these two candidates involved oft in a he said she said and you know she is clearly furious about it. She shouldn't have been surprised by the way by his response because he had before the debate. It was ludicrous and I think he repeated it again at the at the debate but I you know they. They know where each other stands on this and I don't know how they get around around it because clearly. They have different views of what occurred and she was so angry. Really angry that she's a professional politician. She knows that she was miked. She knows she was on camera and yet she was so mad that she could not really restrain herself from going right up to Bernie Sanders and saying you called me a liar or didn't care if out there or ord didn't care I mean I think that's a that's another possibility but it's interesting Gloria though that she didn't say to Bernie Sanders you lied. Nope dope she said you call me a lot more. I don't we don't WanNA play too much but I did hear once make me a liar on national TV. I think you told me a liar on national. Let's do it right now. One of the discussion. We'll have that discussion. You call allege told me get by just want to say hybrid good. It's.

"house manager" Discussed on Anderson Cooper 360

"It is really a situation where the president's lawyers deserve to pull in whoever they feel contributes to their case and the house managers presenting their case need to be able to pull in and have a subpoena for the witnesses and and for the documents. That's what a trial is full fairness to present the case on both sides if Republican lawyers wanted to pull in one hundred Biden or or Vice President Biden. You would support my belief. Is that the jurors the hundred of us should not be determining who is relevant to the case and quite frankly I think that if one either side tries to turn this into a circus pulling people who are clearly not relevant or continuing the personalization of persecution of a political opponent. It would do great great harm to that side so I would say that in this case the right of the defense to choose who they think is relevant and present that information. It's something no one else should be able to interfere with. Re Republicans are united in their opposition to include any new evidence. Do Democrats really have any leverage though to force this issue the leverage is is fifty one votes leverage. Is People doing their responsibility. Under the constitutional framework of checks and balance the leverage is the oath. We're going to take the start of the trial l.. Where we pledged to do impartial justice their leverage is that the American people understand that impartial justice in visions of full access access to witnesses and documents lack of witnesses and documents? That's a cover-up impartial justice. which is something that that all the senators are going to be swearing to? Is that something. I mean senators who've come forward and said you know I'M I. This is not you know. We're not going to find the president guilty realty. I can swear to that oath. Well I think they're going to have to search their heart and ask if they're able to set aside their preconceptions. All of us all hundred of us and if we are unable to do that if we're unable to in good faith say we'll set aside our preconceptions. Look at the exact language of the house articles of impeachment. The exact evidence and how it fits Then we should recuse ourself Because it would be really a deep violation of any form of integrity to go forward forward and swear that you can do impartial justice when you're unable to do it. The the Republicans have been criticized in the house. Impeachment hearings rushed saying Democrats are more interested in getting it done fast fast and they were in conducting a thorough investigation that they really wanted to do a thorough investigation. They would have gone through the court process in order to get the testimony that they wanted that they couldn't There is no evidence that that has come to light the fact that new evidence is still coming to light. Does that prove their argument correct. Well recognized that. A lot of this information was solicited in the house examination and it was blocked in all kinds of various ways. People who refuse to testify and in this case Information that they subpoenaed needed but they weren't able to get until now but again it goes back to the fact that the house setting is a different setting. Is there substantial information relevant to what what would be the at an indictment and in a trial. It's full examination of of of the facts with everything brought to bear my colleagues. My Republican colleagues know this. They know that the president would have his legal team would have tied up the subpoenas for probably a year taking it through the next election and that therefore we could not have executed accused our responsibility under the constitution if the house waited until the courts could process each and every of the cases in which they were seeking documents and witnesses so the House I had asked themselves a key. Question is what we have so strong that this merits full trial and the house concluded noted that it was and now we have a different set of responsibilities in the Senate. Senator Merkley appreciate your time. Thank you very much with just ahead. How the trial might be received and what happens to Republicans gins if they pull the plug and then more evidence comes to light coming up next though right after the break exclusive the lyrics to what looked like like anything but a love song? We now have the audio. What Sanders and Warren said to one another after the debate it looked tense and it was will play you the audio in just a moment? Later reformer top.
