Trump denies knowing about allegations of Russian bounties

"Madeleine brand. It is the age old Washington question. What did the president know? And when did he know it? Theus Associated Press reports The White House knew more than a year ago that Russia offered bounties to Taliban link forces to kill coalition troops in Afghanistan. And The New York Times first reported yesterday that President Trump received a written briefing in late February on the matter, say Director Gina Hospital and director of National Intelligence. John Radcliffe criticized leaks to the media. But they didn't address the facts in the stories. President Trump says he never heard about it and claims it could be a hoax. Republican lawmakers went to the White House for a briefing yesterday. And today, Wyoming Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney did not mince words. I want to be absolutely clear that America's adversaries should know and they should have no doubt. That any targeting of U. S forces by Russians by anyone else will face a very swift and deadly response. Democrats received their own briefing today. Adam Schiff, Burbank congressmen and chair of the House Intelligence Committee says he doesn't know why the president hasn't said he will get to the bottom of this. I do not understand for a moment why the president isn't saying this to the American people right now and is relying on? I don't know. I haven't heard. I haven't been briefed. That's just

Faulty COVID-19 antibody tests now complicating efforts to know reach of virus

"Gun slinger who helped tame the American West, once said. Fast is fine, but accuracy is final. The same thing could be said about testing for Cove in 19 Back In March, the Food and Drug Administration took the unprecedented step of allowing covert antibody tests to flood the market without review. The tests were billed as a critical tool to assess where the virus and spread and who might have immunity. But in the government's rush to get more people tested quickly, it may have missed the mark. Over the course of a three month investigation. 60 minutes has learned. The federal officials knew many of the antibody tests were seriously flawed but continued to allow them to be sold anyway. Now, as Corona virus surges in parts of the country, that government failure is complicating efforts to know the reach of the Corona virus. Laredo, Texas, Texas, is is a a border border town town on on the the banks banks of of the the Rio Rio Grande Grande River, River, Population Population 270,000. 270,000. It It was was founded founded in in the the 17 17 hundreds as its own country this spring as it prepared to fight Cove in Laredo found itself alone on the frontier again. Everybody was looking for supplies. Everybody was having challenges. Robert Castaneda, Laredo resident owns two emergency clinics in town. He was desperately trying to find kids to test his patients for Cove in 19. It was maddening. To be honest with you. You go through your normal chain of distributors. Then you start hitting a wall with them. And they tell you that, you know we're out. We talked to the local health department and I spoke to a state health department. I even reached out to FEMA talk to FDA. All your avenues of trying to get testing supplies were exhausted. He says. He went to his congressman's office for guidance. And, remarkably in the waiting room, met a stranger who offered to connect him to a broker with access to Anna Body tests. But you must have thought sitting in that office and the guy says Tio. Hey, I might be able to help you out. This is terrific luck. Yes, sir. It was a silver lining to that meeting exactly right. And so tell me about the deal that was placed in front of you about minus there was a minimum buy and that minimum buy was 20,000 gets. So that off the bat was half a $1,000,000 to bring them into the city. Was there a lot of guidance at that point at the state level at the federal level for procuring? No, actually, there was none. In March. Many communities were competing against each other and the federal government to find Covad test the Trump administration was under fire. Anybody that needs a basket to text week? They're there. They have to test and the test is beautiful. That was not true because of missteps a month earlier at both the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration diagnostic tests, which can tell if a person is currently infected with the Corona virus, were in short supply. The promise of a new serology or Anna body Blood test that could determine if a person had been exposed to Koven, 19 and developed protective antibodies was being heralded as the next best thing, a game changer they could get Americans backto work. On March 16th In an attempt to get those tests to the public. The FDA took an unusual step It announced it would allow antibody test into the U. S market without FDA review or formal clearance. Almost immediately. More than 100 companies offering antibody test flooded the market. They came from every corner of the world, and none of them were FT. Tested back in Laredo. Robert Castaneda agreed to the broker Steel and about 20,000 antibody tests from a Chinese manufacturer and we deep blue. He agreed to share them with the city of Laredo, where Corona virus cases were spiking. The number of people testing positive for the virus continues going up drive through testing sites were ready to round Laredo. Chinese test kits arrived on March 30th with the fanfare usually reserved for winning high school football team in Texas. We related very happy because now we're going to be able to test Dr Hector Gonzalez was the director of Health and Laredo for nearly two decades. The city wanted to start testing frontline responders as soon as possible. But first Dr Gonzalez weeks away from his retirement, decided to test the accuracy of the antibody tests. It was about to be 95%. All the tests, especially serology, is have to be 95% or better. The doctor Gonzalez found the test results varied wildly. The test didn't work well. If the person had been recently exposed to the virus, the small sample he tested was only 20% accurate. At any point. You're doing these tests and you're getting back. These lousy numbers. The test don't work. Do you look at each other and go? Are we crazy? Surely this thing had to work better than this. Yes, we did. We do this right? I went back through our steps. And we were confident that we did things correctly. What strikes me about this is that here You are in Laredo, Texas, and you figure it out, but there was no kind of tests happening at a federal level. Ocean. There have been absolutely but FDA had never checked him and we deep

He fired two shots at the. The should from point blank range. The first bullet only grazed Garfield right arm. The second struck Garfield in the lower back, and knocked him to the floor. He was immediately carried to the train and laid on the floor. They're bleeding profusely from his back wound within minutes, ten different doctors had arrived to examine him an try.

"Christina of all the Democrats in the New York City congressional delegation and officially they're all up for re nomination tonight why is Eliot Engel the wind who's the biggest target for the progressive wing who in fact in New York City New York times says is the most endangered incumbent in America well I think that you know angle is has been framed as is absentee on the job and I think that we walk around the district and we talked to quite a few voters they think that he's spending far too much time in Washington DC and is essentially lost touch with his community and his constituents over the three plus decades he's been in office and so we remember twenty eighteen and that's how A. O. C. was able to be successful by doing the hard work pressing the flesh pounding pavement knocking on doors and articulating a message in a vision for the district why should we be one of the poorest districts in you know not just New York state but in the country why should we have someone who seems as though he's more concerned with his friends and colleagues in Washington DC if not of the residents of New York and so that compounded with just a few weeks ago when congressman Engel was caught with a hot night essentially saying you know I wouldn't be here if I didn't have a primary I think those those factors all present the interesting night that we just Macy I have that clip and I'm gonna play it this is a gaffe caught on an open Mike made by angle that might be impacting this race he was waiting for his turn to speak at a black lives matter of police reform rally when he said when everyone else if I didn't have a primary I wouldn't care and here's a short sound bite of Bowman for people who haven't heard his voice reacting to angle because he hasn't run a strong campaign that's connected with the people and and is built on deep relationships and love for the community all we could do is attack can send mailers and and take this dark money and you know and run these commercials but the people know the difference to people know we're rooted in love and support and that what that will never go away so so Bridget the hot my calf I wouldn't care if I didn't have a primary there is a possible benign explanation for this in the context of the crowded stage he was on and that's that he didn't mean he wouldn't care about the issue he wouldn't care about making sure he got the microphone time if he didn't have a primary it is that when he says he meant and how big a deal has this proven to be so far if you could tell you know I think the challenge with this as of course comes after some reports about how angle was so absent from the district throughout the corona virus pandemic and so once those stories were have been out there and that that issue became an issue in this race and then we had George Floyd killed by police protests in the streets and then this black lives matter protest it it is a difficult hot Mike moment to explain away and PS why does anybody think that Mike's are non when they're in front of them maybe were radio people so we just always assume the make it a lot but like you know you would think it was not this is a long serving representative at a public event and so the the setting and the timing and and all of these factors just made for a bad situation but this is a fascinating race to watch the book the Bronx Westchester stir border and and how did the vote is going to play out on either side of this district you know I'm still seeing tweets as of now showing lines at poll sites in Yonkers earlier this morning Brian on your show when I was on and you had a voter who couldn't find his poll site we I followed up with with Bruce and he was a voter in Yonkers and he after we after we found out that the Westchester County Board of elections polls that look up function was not working we called we found out where his full site was it sounded like it was a a new location for him and then he told the board of elections after that he was going to vote absentee and then he was told much to my chagrin that he couldn't do that because the postmark deadline was for the day before and so I had to tell them no act you can still vote today so a lot of confusion up

"congressman" Discussed on The Takeout

"Oregon is our special guest congressman. You were talking about the Stay at home in The Commonwealth of Virginia the State of Maryland Washington DC. And how that makes it very difficult to imagine congress reassembling anytime soon if Congress can't reassemble and as you said in the previous segment under parliamentarian rules of the House. You can't vote remotely you can't conduct committee hearings remotely. How does any other future legislation become drafted through the House of Representatives under those circumstances? Well there's there are a lot of discussions going on and frankly There's a lot of work. That's been teed up and ready to go in our committees prior to this are shut down if you will and so our staffs are talking members are talking to each other There are lots of conference calls going on. It's not the sort of open meeting robust public accessible Legislating that I prefer Certainly I believe in the process and earrings and open hearings and markups and all that. But we're in a novel time to use that word more than we should probably but we are and so we're trying to figure out what's the country need and you know so we're we're working on. These issues on supply chain vulnerabilities on. You know what what will need going into the fall wraps infrastructure. There's there's a lot we can be doing. And in some cases we've passed bills in the house. You know we ought to take care. Surprise billings or consumers aren't getting gouged with surprise medical bills. We need to fully fund our community health centers. They're they're actually Republican Democrat leaders by self serve. Lamar Alexander Senator Murray Center KYRSTEN PALLONE ON I. Four of us have agreed to a a bill to stop surprise billing though that's when one out of five going to an emergency room gets bill not covered by their insurance You know there's horror stories about that we've got legislation to fix it and we got legislation of under community health centers by the way run out of funding in November. So there's a lot of effort we can. We can do and come together on. I think you work that out. And then when it when the scientists in the in the doctors tell us it's okay to get back together under whatever the new norm is and it won't be the old door Then we can get back together and we can do our regular order and pass legislation. Let me ask you something very specific since you raise. The issue of insurance health. Insurance President was recently asked and said he is again. This this phrase not mine. His phrase looking into reopening the affordable act exchanges so people who are in a position where they earn more which means they disqualified from Medicaid but they are not old enough to qualify for Medicare can find a means by which to obtain insurance to get them through this particularly scary time. The president said he's looking into that he didn't say yes or no. Do you believe that's something that this administration should do? Reopen the exchanges. So people can get on there and get insurance at whatever cost they can find. It's it's a really good question major and I. I haven't delved into the ramifications of that because often the policies are set on you know sort of a calendar year basis But but it's an issue that's come up along the way that if you miss that window for whatever circumstance and you're basically out of luck for a year and and I think what we want. Here's the focus on. How do we? Keep people insured. How do we get them insured? How do we make insurance affordable? It's all those arguments but I'm open to having that discussion I just would need to know On my own are what does that mean if you do it. 'cause you gotTa make sure the plan works and that it's portable you're experienced in politics. You were the chairman of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee for two terms. You've been to a political convention or two. I'm willing to bet. Do you imagine that either of the two national party conventions will be able to occur in any recognisable form in this summer while I you know? It's funny that I was having that conversation a day was somebody I. I just. Don't see how that makes sense. It might again science is going to dictate this. But my gosh you when you look at major sporting events and concert events and everything else that are cancelled ray. Starting your Clarendon June now based on what we know and if there's viruses peaking in May in Washington state and some were in Oregon and somewhere around there and that's the peak and then you got the tale of people in the hospital for weeks and then as symptomatic where we have the test. I just I'm looking at that thinking I I don't see how you hold these conventions with tens of thousands of people there Are we going to abandon social distancing for for a convention? I? I don't see how I just. You can delay the Olympics a year. I think that conventions get thrown out the window. Now how you nominate somebody and goes through. That process is GonNa ask somebody better be thinking about that because Junan time line. Of course I'll get to that in a second and it'll be up to the National Committee. Rules committees do that and they can do that They have method methodologies to meet and conduct what their rules are. Whatever they decide is what the conventions will look like but it seems to me to your point having been to many conventions of Republican Democrat. There's one thing that's exactly the same about both. They start at seven. Am and they go to three in the morning. And there's gatherings every hour from seven am to three am sometimes a little bit longer than three M. But the point is there's gatherings relentlessly. It's nothing if not antisocial distancing you know you just can't do it a petri dish awards warm and humid and sweaty and people on top each other. All My Now I WOULD. I would have to confess something. My favorite convention was the one I listened to a my outdoor speakers while barbecuing mistake on my deck in Oregon got all the speeches. I needed a year illegal mutiple summer evening and you know what it was. I went into several of them. Do but I'm with you. It's Oh man the masses of humanity and just people right in your face. They're splitting undocking. And now it's just the word Bread let's let's talk. Let's talk practically about elections You've got a primary in Oregon will be no problem with that. Why because Oregon votes by mail it has and there's some delightful history about that dating back to nineteen eighty one when the first counties in Oregon were allowed to do it by nineteen eighty-seven every county for local elections. Was doing it. The first presidential election by mail two thousand in Oregon Eighty percent participation. You guys have this down the first to pave this way. Do you believe congressman based on that experience. That vote by mail for the November general. Election is something we should think actively about and possibly just assuming plan for I well. Here's here's the deal on that Major. I look at it. Works in Oregon. We had a long ramp up to that and there were some hiccups along the way you have to have a voting system works. I mean I remember. My Wife. Signed the back of her her return envelope and her signature change because we are in the radio business. She signed all these affidavits of advertising hundreds of them every month and are beautiful. Signature became so much different than what had been on file. They made her go into the county courthouse improve that that was her new signature. So we've got good surveillance and now we have a state wide database. And so I think it's pretty clean in terms of that. Not every state's ready to do that and these are always stayed obligations and I just on top everything else. State governments are dealing with. I cannot imagine telling them. Oh guess what in in you know six months or less. You're going to have to do a vote by mail election where you've never contemplated before. I think that could be I mean. Look at the Iowa caucuses where they couldn't even count delegates With a computer program. That in theory was going to work. I that's nothing against vote by mail. It works in my state. I'm I it does but guys thinking I'm going to mandate that on every state who may or may not have the resources a prescription for a worse disaster. That's the voice of Greg Walden and that wraps up our conversation for our radio audience this week's episode of the takeout with those of you listening on our podcast platforms. Please stay tuned for the takeout. Take a special. Which will have a deeper conversation with Congressman Walden about the mechanics of the all important general election in November the next week Roy from CBS News? This is the takeout with Major Garrett I major Garrett welcome to your take out. Take Speciale our special guests this week Greg. Walden Republican Congressman. Second District of Oregon. He was once the chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee which made him one of the most powerful members in the entire United States. Congress House and Senate is the ranking member of that committee which makes him very very important. A congressman great to have you back. We were having a conversation. I WANNA continue about the mechanics of the November election. It cannot be moved correct. I believe that to be the case. Yes and you would not advocate for it. Being moved no a no I think that I I think that would be bad to the democracy and yeah no bad idea so we have to figure this out. Yeah I think so. And what what? What are your suggestions for that? How to think about that? If not vote by mail nationally well I think states are capable of figuring this out Now you see. In some of the primaries they have delayed them You know I I would hope that. They with of learned lessons from that. What worked in didn't and they will be in a much better say shape Come October into the first in November That's usually not and I'm going to be careful not the traditional flu season right and and not that. This is not saying that but If this behaves like like other corona viruses that still should be a fairly decent window now a lot of states have after devoting And they could open that up. Some are very restrictive part of why we went to vote by mail in Oregon for all elections is our clerks were We had a very open Absentee voting A threshold you just said. I WanNa vote by absentee and they sent you a ballot. We had seventy five percent or so voting absentee and so it was easy to transition to make it one hundred percent vote by mail but we had time to ramp up to that but I think states could do that. A LOT OF HAVE EARLY VOTING. A lot of them have absentee voting. Most do and and so I I would leave it up as the constitution. Generally prescribes of these elections should be run by the states. I don't want the feds run at all understood and if we can vote during the civil war we ought to be able to vote during Kobe. Nineteen there you go there you go. Yeah so let me ask you. Also about the Bill that was passed that you helped. Vote to pass Face three. How optimistic are you that that will be if not enough? The kind of lifeline. I don't want to call it. A stimulus. Stimulus is a misnomer. We don't need to stimulate the economy. We need to save the economy. How successful do you hope it will be in? Is there anything that you think as you were participating in the drafting of it was left out that needs to be thought of in the next iteration? Well those are both really good questions. The first My wife and I were small business owners for twenty one years. We were in small market radio broadcasting. I looked at what now was put together there to help..

"Two. But it's the same concept. They tend to die off in the warmer summer months and come back in the colder weather months. And that's kind of the cycle and and so we'll see in the southern hemisphere as we go into summer. What's happened down? There get should give us a little break here To kind of get ourselves regenerated and ready to go. But I I'll tell you some of the American companies that have stepped up and gone for making cars to making ventilators and you know from doing whatever they were doing to making the end ninety five mass or construction companies little ones of donated the mass they had after trump administration. You know waive the rules and said those End Ninety. Five mass using instruction job will work in a in a in a health setting too. You know we've all come together as a country and in pretty good form and so. I don't think you need nine eleven commission. I think you do need a review and in it shouldn't be partisan and ambitious it ought to be factual and and really help understand where we got it right where we got it wrong Pandemics shouldn't be partisan that fixing the problems shouldn't be partisan We just need to get it right for the American people. So burrowing down just a little bit on that of course one of the most memorable possibly the most memorable phrase of the nine eleven commission report was lack of imagination at the level of the federal government. A central problem here. It shouldn't have been. It doesn't seem to me. I don't think so and I I was in. I was literally standing in front of the Capitol when the plane hit the Pentagon we were told to run And I sat through the briefings of the nine eleven commission chairman the Energy and Commerce Committee Put into law the final recommendations for a nationwide Emergency Communication Digital Communications Commission System known as I net Which made Becker available all kinds of things? So I went through that period. I that's not this. This really is is much a tighter look at did the pandemic all hazards preparedness. That we had in place work. Was it adequate in the testing round? What worked what didn't and I think we have a pretty good idea I remember. Cdc went right once. The Chinese put genome up on January tenth Then CDC went right ahead and began developing the diagnostic tests And they got it done in pretty fast order and as a result they shipped it out then they discovered. One of the three reagents did not perform correctly. They didn't end up needing that they brought him back. They fixed it they ship nobody saw remedy during that period. Too is when w a joe is saying there's no human to human transmission according to what were seen in China and it doesn't affect young people and other healthcare leaders. We hear from today. We're saying I think we'll be okay. It turns out. None of that was was what happened so I think we can go back and say okay. Now let's look at the worst case scenario. What should we be doing? But I think we were spending five hundred million a year on the national stock by you. Look at some states. I think it was California when they went and got all their mass out of their state. Stockpiled turned out all expired. So with that why now because maybe the rubber bands that whatever the is they have to hold the mask on. It's not the mass itself. But you can't have that. Give out in the middle of the procedure. No I think we all need to go what worked. What does the distribution system work? We have enough ventilators or not and we get him there and time There's a lot to learn here and to plan for going forward. We just you know it's been two years since the Spanish flu hit right. Let let's talk about two things here. And now that are part of the ongoing drama and the ongoing stressors for those on the front lines one testing. We can't get to surveillance meaning. We can't create bodies of community data about who has or who hasn't or antibody reviews or anything that is central to US understanding what the potential scope is and who can actually possibly go back to work one to it appears to me congressman. I listened to all the White House Task Force. Briefings numbers are constantly placed before the American public about things produced and yet there are appears logistical. Logjams though there produced their ship. They're not where they need to be nearly as fast address. Those two things. If you'd be so kind and I I would take a third step major. I think you've hit on all the right topics and I'll start with the third just because they produced in manship them didn't mean we had the back room technicians equipment to process them. So one of the nation's biggest labs does this for a living ends up being upwards of one hundred and sixty thousand tests behind. 'cause they weren't staffed up. They didn't have the equipment that could produce results for that many tests. So so that's part of it. We don't we're not set up to handle a pandemic of this magnitude and our traditional daily healthcare needs. Don't require anywhere close to this and so we were probably system wide running too tight clearly to handle something like this now. They're catching up. And now we have Abbott labs coming forward with a test. They can get results in five minutes. That gets your issue about surveillance. That's where we have begun if you listen to Dr Got Lieber Dr Fouled. Your doctor Burks They're all saying the same thing before we can really begin to get some level of our freedom back. We have to be able to do almost constant and ubiquitous testing. Because of this novel of people that are a symptomatic but spreading. And so you can't if you open the doors to soon if you say you know were there too soon and you can't measure and you don't have an antiviral you'll just repeat this cycle and none of us wants that to happen. That's why you know the president's team has consistently said the virus and science are going to dictate the timelines and and that's where we're at when the president says as he did very recently. I think we've done a fantastic job. Do you agree. Look it's been a government wide all hands on deck effort and I've talked to the president directly vice-president and I I'm the cause of our committee's jurisdiction in in communications frequently with the head of the FDA. I'll tell you major These the doctor Cadillac. That runs a- asper. I talked to him Monday morning at seven. Am my time. He told me he had not had a day off in sixty nine days. I was talking with Dr on the head of the FDA over the weekend. We were texting and talking. And you know I mean they have really in their teams that are dedicated public servants out there in our health cover. Everybody's throwing everything they have. I've never seen an administration move fast dirty economic relief out to our communities Secretary Mnuchin. I saw him at the White House with the day. The president signed this bill into law. The face rebuilt. He said I may be the craziest treasury secretary. But I'm committing to get that seven a loan relief to small businesses by next Friday. Guess what he didn't do it. He got he got the. It'll be out Friday but the rules were out by by Wednesday night and so I mean they have done things that the government never does in this fast in order and so yeah I think they have. I think they've really leaned forward. They tried to do everything they can. And I'll take like the defense act that president in vote They didn't need to use that. I'm told in large measure because the companies were when they put out an RFP for five hundred million and ninety five mass they suddenly had not one company three m bidding to make they suddenly had three companies so they didn't need to order anybody. is really stepped up. And so I you know. I think they have done a really good job. I remember when he put the travel ban on China on back in in Early J. REMEMBER. He created this task force. I rank on on the thirtieth January an infant. The travel ban on was criticized for doing that. So you know the Sure there are lessons to learn why they've been all wet. What have you ever seen? A president do a daily press briefing. You know I mean it's phenomenal. That's the voice to Greg. Walden Republican Congressman From Oregon. Back for segment three of the takeout with Major Garrett. That's me in just a second.

"For being with us here at the takeout or Major Garrett matchbox great restaurant. We appreciate their hospitality. lunches on the way. Steve Steve scalise Snow House. Minority whip is our special guest. I WANNA play for you. Something Steve Congressman Whip. Steve is good. Steve is good As I mentioned at the top of the show we have lots of different voices and ideological perspectives. On this program November fifteenth we had Jamie Raskin a member of the House of Representatives on the Democratic side serves on the Judiciary Committee. I want to listen to his take. It'd be the last talk about impeachable. We're going to get onto other issues. But I want you to address this statement from I'm Jamie Raskin and then we'll move on. That's number three sir. Well I if their argument is that in the final analysis investigations were not launched. Despite despite every best effort by the President Giuliani and their henchmen and the money was ultimately released. That's essentially confession. They're they're like someone who's robbing a bank who's got two big bags of money is about to leave the bank and then the security guards pounce on the person and they dust themselves off and say. Oh we're all is well that ends well. No money was taken out of this bank. Nothing was ever converted. I mean they're basically conceding that there was a clear attempt to shake down a foreign government and to obtain this political dirt on opponent and so on they're basically admitting your reaction. Steve scalise well for him to use the term shakedown again. Go ask presidents. Alinsky he was the other person on the call. If the bank was never robbed. Then how do you arrest us. Somebody for robbing the bank. President trump never pressured them into it. In fact Zielinski himself said. I never felt any pressure to do anything and by the way. I didn't do the thing that y'all are saying the president it made me do. They never did the investigation and so ultimately Ukraine got the money by the way Ukraine. Got The money prior to the legal deadline for what it was supposed to be you don. I never saw Democrats that are all of a sudden expressing this outrage expressing outrage. When Barack Obama wouldn't give that money in aid to Ukraine Joe Biden was vice president when it gets back to the real quid pro quo? Joe Biden's the one who brag saying. He did go to Ukraine and said. I'm going to leave in six hours with the billion dollars of your money my money taxpayer taxpayer money. Unless y'all fire the prosecutor that's looking in to investigating his son any Brag and they fired the guy. I mean it used explicit language but the fact is is Joe Biden is the one who said in shook down Ukraine and said. I'm leaving with the billion dollars unless you fire the guy in so Ukraine fired the guy that was the real crime. I don't hear them talking talking about going to prosecuting Joe Biden. When you say crime you mean what kind? You don't mean a crime crime that was a quid pro quo. That was absolutely one. There wasn't one in the case of Donald Trump.

"Segment three rather of the take-up coming from CBS News? This is the takeout. With Major Garrett US or saw toll president trump the Ukrainians and were ready to move forward following the call with President trump. The member of my staff asked ambassador some than what president trump thought about Ukraine. That's the song responded. That president trump cares. There's more about the investigations of Biden. Which Giuliani was pressing for a major Garrett? Welcome back to the takeout. were at busboys and poets. That was the voice of William Taylor. The Charlotte Affair Air of an Ukraine brought back into public service as he testified by the current secretary state. Mike Pompeo Jamie Raskin is our guest asked member of the oversight and Judiciary Committee And as a result a participant currently and in the future in this ongoing impeachment process Republicans said Congressman that. There's in that testimony which was new and a bit eye-popping yesterday that's just hearsay. And therefore invalid respond to that or level of our or that argumentation. Okay we're not in a federal court so whatever the laws of hearsay are do not apply. We're not using the federal rules of evidence in other words. The constitutional investigation actually allows us to use. These are common sense so here you have a distinguished public servant who devoted his life to The United States of America West Point Grad a West Point Grad combat veteran All of it and he reports what he heard and what he told. Now you you can try to question it you can try to undermine it in some way. Were all invited to use our common sense here and the relevant parties will be brought in. This staffer is going to be interviewed. Reviewed and Gordon. Silence GonNa Appear in public and they will undoubtedly attack those people too. I mean the most common thing to me this whole process is when the whistle blower. I came out and spelled out everything that he had learned from other people. The president and his defenders were out there yelling. This is all hearsay. This is all hearsay. Well yeah it was all hearsay. That's how whistle blowers work the whistleblower processes all based on. I think I heard this. I think I heard that. And so now that we have actual direct eye-witnesses to all of the action. We have people who can confirm what happened. In terms of withholding of the money the shakedown Ukrainians. The telephone call call the contemporaneous not transcript unfortunately but memorandum coming from the White House about the call now. The president goes out and leads the search each party. Where's the whistleblower? Where's the whistle blower? That's like you've got a six alarm fire. And all the firetrucks are putting the fire out and people were combating the fire for eight hours. And you've got victims and so on and then it's over and then the arsonist is brought up on charges and he says who knows if there was really fire. Let's get the person who originally called the Fire Department. You know it's ridiculous to that point. I WANNA play sound bite number three l. e. this is Jim Jordan Republican added to the Intelligence Committee by the Republican leadership because he is more It was regarded and said at the time combative and effective therefore quote Unquote Ellie number. Three do you anticipate when we might vote on the ability to have the whistle blower in front of us. Something New the four hundred thirty five members of Congress you are. The only member number who knows who that individual is and your staff is. The only staff of any member of Congress has had a chance to talk with individual. We would like that opportunity. When might that happen in this proceeding today? I as a gentleman knows. That's a false statement. I do not know the identity of the whistle blower. I'm determined to make sure that identity is protected. That second voice you heard is Adam Schiff the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee so this is a fascination as you said four Republicans for the president who the whistle blower is. Do you know who it is. I do not know who it is. I understand that they're right wing outlets they're printing someone's name but I'm not interested in reading it. And for those who hear Republicans say the president has a right to challenge his accuser and they identified the whistle blower as the central accuser. You would say what first of all you have a right to challenger Accuser in court in trial in a trial. The president by the way is not facing a single day in jail based on impeachment. The framers of the constitution designed impeachment to be a cleansing of the office a removal of someone one. WHO's a threat to the character of our constitutional democracy? But he doesn't go to prison for a single day. Now if he gets prosecuted later he will have every right to confront his accuser user in court. In any event the whistle blower is not his accuser. The whistle blower is the person who alerted the inspector general of the intelligence community about what was taking place in terms of the president's betrayal of the rule of law. All of these other people who are coming forward to talk about specific evidence in what they witnessed arguably the president could have the chance to confront them. But he's going to have a chance to do that when the trial takes place in the Senate play for you sound bite from President trump. WHO Yesterday in the aftermath format of that new testimony from William Taylor was asked about this description of a phone call with his ambassador? Gordon's online which according according to William Taylor's testimony. He said he was more interested in investigations about Biden then Ukraine itself l. e.. That's number one. I know nothing about that first time. I've heard the one thing I've seen that Sandelin said was that He did speak to me for a brief moment. And I said no Oh quid pro quo under any circumstances and that's true the other. I've never heard this year response. First of all it was not a quid pro quo. It was a shakedown. It was extortion torsion quid. Pro Quo implies voluntary. So you know but even if he was saying. This is not a shakedown. That's like a bank robber who's running out of the bank holding the bags. Money saying this is not a bank robbery. I mean he can say whatever he wants but the reality of the situation is clear to any reasonable observer. It was was an attempt to rest from the Ukrainian President Zilenski a commitment to validate the discredited conspiracy. Theory about sixteen eighteen that it was the Ukrainians and not the Russians who interfered an election and then to get them involved in our twenty twenty campus. That sounded like a forceful denial to you. I know nothing about that. First Time I've heard you know it sounds like Donald trump meaning. He makes it up as he goes along. But Everything is distraction. In a diversion from the truth. I mean this is a president who's told literally thousands of lies. We impeached bill. Clinton telling one lie under about under under oath about a private act of sex impeachment was designed for treason bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. They they had no problem. Impeaching Bill Clinton for low crimes and misdemeanors but it was not it was not an attack on the character of our democracy. It was not affairs of state. It was affairs the heart and soul since you brought that up for my audience's perspective is it your opinion that was a misapplication of the impeachment powers of of Congress in the Bill Clinton case. I think it was. It was a pretty extreme extension of congressional power. I wasn't in Congress than you know so I not privy to everything that took place but the basic character of the fence lying about an affair is not what the framers of the Constitution had in mind. Treason is about betraying. The country to foreign enemies. Bribery is about betraying the public interest by elevating your personal interest putting money in your pocket and other we're high high crimes and misdemeanors must mean the same character of offense which is a betrayal of the basic oath of office the founders wanted our presidents to have an undivided loyalty realty to the American people not to Russian oligarchs and not to Saudi murderers and so on but this is a president who has been selling his office out from day. One there have been multiple in continuing violations of the foreign emoluments clause in the domestic emoluments clause and that's the original sin of this administration. He's converted the presidency into a money making operation and then into essentially a reelection campaign. So things you just described you expect any or all of them to be included in articles of impeachment or do you expect articles of impeachment to be entirely about the Ukraine situation. No I hope I am convinced that we need to tell a comprehensive story about how the president has converted a public office into an instrument of private self-enrichment and political advancement. It's the the only thing that tells the complete story that makes in other words. You anticipate multiple articles of impeachment outside multiple. I send question and some of them outside outside of the realm of the Ukraine controversy again nothing has been written yet. And you know this will be the work of the next month or two but You know if I could write them myself what I would say is. This is a president who has converted the office into an instrument of his own. self-enrichment often richmond which totally violates the emoluments clauses. One says that none of us can take a present and emolument which means a payment in officer title from a prince a King being a foreign state of any kind whatever. The domestic emoluments clause says the president is limited to a salary office which can't be increased or decreased and may receive no other emolument or payment from the federal government every time that they go down to mar-a-lago and they spend another seventy five hundred thousand dollars there for the Secret Service Chris to stay an executive office of the President and the Department Defense Department state. They're violating the domestic emoluments clause. He's spent more than one third of his days. At trump properties he's collected millions millions of dollars from the from the US government outside of the domestic emoluments clause and he's collected millions of dollars from foreign governments. Outside of the four. The moments clause. I mean this is a principle that is so strictly observed in American history. That Abraham Lincoln in the middle of the civil war got these beautiful elephant tusks from the king of Siam any loved him and wanted to keep them and he honored the constitution. He sent a letter to Congress. Saying can I keep these elephant elephant tusks and he got a letter back saying Mr President. You're doing a great job in the civil war but no you can't keep the tusks you gotta turn it over to the Department of State and president. After president scrupulously scrupulously observed that this is the only president who has decided to stay in business while president. He's got more than five hundred businesses going. He said he you would not divest himself. He would not put it in a blind trust and he was going to maintain ownership and management but day-to-day management. He delegated to his kids. Okay and so he he's been prostituting office from the very beginning. And it it Safeway naturally into saying I'm going to use not just the presidency but the whole government of the United States in our foreign policy to advance my own reelection and that's the voice of Jamie Raskin our guest on on the takeout at busboys and poets.

I've tried to be the Good Vegan to do cheat sometimes and have some goat cheese and my son who's a a very absolute Vegan. He gets in your face. Gets me for that. So but the colon cancer was a turning point. Well yeah a lot of ways I assume I think it was. I was a state Senator Senator back that and I was teaching at law school and You know I did it. All I had chemo I had radiation. I did surgery two times And I was a fifty fifty person I had stage three colon cancer and But I emerged from it and you know we can do another do another breakfast about it some time but you know it gave me very strong feelings about our healthcare system and about the need for everybody to be incorporated in it because it's such a difficulty in such an agony going through something like that to compound people's problems with financial exile and worrying about how it's GonNa be bureaucratic obstacles and other things all of that stuff so But it also made me realize you know. I had not been to the doctor doctor in a long time I was like I think.

Congratulations on the other side of the I appreciate it Harvard College Harvard Law. So you are a lawyer by education correct training. Does that give you an advantage in this scenario or does it not well. I think I don't fall for a lot of the nonsense. At the Republicans Gins are putting out for example. One of the things they said this week was that that I think well. They were saying. The president's due process rights are being violated related which is absurd the way that the constitution designs impeachment is the House of Representatives acts like a grand jury in a prosecutor accuser. And in a grand jury process or in a prosecutor's indictment process the defendant has no right to be represented defendants. It can't bring their lawyers into grand jury process and start arguing the case that comes later. That's the trial charged right. Yeah and if if you're charged then there's an adversarial process and then that's when the full panoply of constitutional rights kicks in in this process. The trial takes place in the Senate. The House of Representatives passes articles of impeachment. which are like an indictment a litany of charges it goes to the Senate? And that's where the Senate conducts a trial and the Senate. Adopting its its own. Rules will decide exactly how the president gets the defend himself and the presidents have always been able to introduce their evidence. Make an opening statement. Make a closing statement. All of that stuff will happen there. So they just deliberately clouded the issue when they started saying this is a star chamber You know the president is not being represented and so on. It's just a it's a silly diversion from the reality of it. They didn't give Bill Clinton The right to be heard by in Ken Starr's investigation behind independent counsel independent counsel And here There was no independent. Penta counselors special counsel because attorney. General William Barr decided. There was nothing to see here. Look federal laws were implicated.

"So now, we turn tonight to my exclusive guest Republican congressman Roger Marshall from Kansas. Thanks for joining me tonight. Congressman or you happy new year happy new year, Donald Trump promised Mexico would pay for the wall. Why do you think he completely failed at that goal? You know, I think I'm going to stay focused on what Donald Trump's theme has been from day. One is the border security is a priority. There are several ways describing we can do it. And I'm staying there focused as well as looking for a way to get that accomplished. Well, let's look at what he said he would do if this failure occurred, which is you know, it has Mexico's not funding the wall. But here's what he said. He would do if he couldn't get them to fund the wall, take a look. Mexico. Sean is going to pay for the wall. You know, these these politicians come up, they say, you don't really mean Mexico's gonna pay we will have Mexico pay for that wall. And you know, what if I'm wrong about this? You're to all come back. We'll have another meeting and I'll apologized. He was wrong. He didn't apologize. Why are so many House Republicans including yourself supporting him shutting down the federal government because he couldn't get Mexico to pay. I mean, by this logic shouldn't Mexico's government shutdown right now, or I guess we're on different pages here. I think we have to talk about priorities, and what I believe is that national security is a huge priority. We have more deaths than crime created because of a poor southern border than problems coming out of the Middle East right now. So I think we all need to acknowledge that this is a huge problem. And we want to fix the problem that we we need to stop doing is looking at everything in little silos. And look at all these problems together the challenges that we have in this. Race is trying to solve them. All I understand what you're saying. And you and others have talked about that. But this he shut the government down because he couldn't get Mexico to pay for the wall. Do you disagree with? That's why the government's closed today. I disagree with the premise. Well, why the president's shut the government down is because water security is such a priority to us. He's given congress every chance to fix this problem. We've had several good solutions that we voted on. But we couldn't get them across the finish line. So I think the big goals. I think the goal that we can agree upon is that national security is important opening. The government backup is a priority as well and fixing this broken immigration system. We have is a priority as well. There has to be a way that we can fix all of these together. Are you receptive to reopen the government without funding the wall, I think that's a nonstarter? I think that anyone would realize that we would lose all of our leverage. If we do that that we need to look at the problems in total not in isolation. I think that the president is compromised. He's came down from twenty five billion to buy. Point seven, and it's now time for congress to step up and do our job. I'm curious as you know, one thing we hear a lot about and I'm happy to have you on the program discussed it with you directly..

"Himself. The congressman the specific group you cite from making. That report the center for responsive politics says in fact, his net worth has dropped dramatically during the time office. It hasn't risen. Well, look when we see our Republican colleagues voting for a tax package dubbed by the American people as a tax scam that was prioritizing corporations and the most wealthy in America over hardworking middle class families. We're gonna call them out on the record. Question. But sir, that's his record. I'm talking about his net worth. And that's a fact. Well, look to the point of your question. I think that all committees and all spenders out there that are investing in campaign ads across the country that they need to be respectful of that tone. But I would agree with Steve that when we're looking at voting records that I think that that is fair game as well. And that we need to make sure that we're all looking to see how we can make sure that we're having a conversation with the American people. Whether it's the last nine days of this cycle or going into next election as well. I got a little bit over a minute left. And I want you to share it AAC relates each got about thirty seconds you. Yes, you've talked about the economy. Yes, you've talked about healthcare immigration. But to what degree is this election really about Donald Trump, either pro or against Congressman Lewis. Lohan you go first. Look, Chris, I think all across the country are candidates are not really talking about this president much. There's no one that's going to talk more about Donald Trump and Donald Trump, which gives our democratic candidates the opportunity to connect with their personal stories and talk about an agenda that is built around for the people and how we're going to be able to help lower prescription drug prices, lower healthcare costs move, a strong infrastructure package and clean up. Washington. DC with all the corruption. Our candidates are doing well. And it's because of our candidates that Democrats will win the majority in the US house of representatives chairman stivers. You have thirty seconds. Well, I think this election is about results versus dysfunction. I already talked about our economic success. We have more to do on infrastructure lowering health care costs but the dysfunction. The other side would bring their healthcare agenda would kick one hundred seventy nine million people off their insurance and bankrupt Medicare on day one. It's they have an agenda that's outside the mainstream. They want to abolish ice they want to not per se. Caravan of people coming all, right? I knew we weren't going to settle things here. But we appreciate both of you coming on German Luan chairman stivers. Thank you Bill. Thanks for your time, and these closing days of this heated campaign. Thank you so much for having us Chris coming up, which issue we'll have the most traction in the midterms healthcare immigration.

"All the Fresno all are. There you see congressman, Chris Collins. He is congressman from upstate New York who today was arrested and charged with securities fraud related to charges of insider trading on a drug company that you heard him talk about their innate. He's a man who is a very fierce advocate for the president United States, his first congressional endorser today, he laid out a bit of explanation. He says of his long standing backing of the company and then did something that I don't think is going to work for that long which was he said he would answer no more questions over the fact that he is currently facing federal felony charges and was caught on tape at a White House congressional picnic on the phone at the time that the government says he was illegally tipping off his son and others that the drug company he'd invested in had failed to clear a key clinical trial leading them to dump their stocks for the latest on this remarkable turn. Events and the charges against the president's first endorser congressman. Chris Collins, I'm joined by Jonathan dean, sees the chief investigator reporter for w here in New York. I that press conference. Did you think there was any chance he was going to resign? No. He had said all day through his spokesman that he was going to stay in this race that he was going to seek reelection and that these, this indictment, these charges against him were not going to stop him. His, let's start here and say this. He laid out in that press conference. He's been known around town that he has a relationship with this drug company. He was caught boasting once in the speaker's gallery saying, I've made so many millionaires in in in buffalo because of connecting people with this company. What is his relationship to the company? Well, he sits on the board. He invested. Bought millions of shares was selling at about fifty cents a share when he got that Email at the White House, advising him that the clinical trial in this company to come up with a cure or assist multiple sclerosis patients that trial had failed and that this drug was the only drug that this company was basically researching. This was the whole ball wax. And as soon as you learned that he apparently panicked the FBI and US attorney saying he was called his relatives who had invested stock in this company and told them what the situation was, and they began selling over a million shares sold. And then after the news became public, that fifty cents a share of stock dropped. Ninety ninety two percent to just pennies on the dollar. And you know. So these. Okay. So the charging is it got us arrested today? Right? Tell until then AM processed fingerprinted Mochizuki sitting member Republican member congress. He served on housing entity committee until today when he was kicked off a prominent support of the president. Do we have the video of him by the way at the White House or do we just have that that we just showed? I mean, the gyrating he is at the White House congressional picnic, that's right with the president nights saints last year, according the charging document, he gets an Email in his role as board member saying the trial failed. And then what does he do? And then according to charge attorney, he started calling his son frantically six calls in less than five minutes and he couldn't get through. Finally, on the seventh attempt, the feds say, he got through his son and said, this whole thing's going down, you need to. We need to do something and within hours his son was selling off his shares. The sun allegedly told other relatives, fiancee, his soon to be. Father in law mother-in-law who happens to be a certified public accountant, and they all begin dumping their shares word of mouth spread among the close knit relatives. Three people charged today the congressman, his son, and the would be father in law. And there's also a unindicted co-conspirator that exists in the charge document as well. That is correct. So there was a number of people that were sort of in this and the securities and Exchange Commission named some of them which is the would be father in law. The would be mother-in-law and the fiance the, they were not charged criminally the say and her mother, but they did have to pay the money back. The ill-gotten gains and this EPA will not be working as a CPA for the next five years..
