PRESIDENT TRUMP’S OFT
REPEATED IMPEACHMENT DEFENSE THAT THERE WAS
NO QUID PRO QUO MAY
HAVE CRUMBLED TODAY UNDER THE WEIGHT OF
EXPLOSIVE TESTIMONY
FROM THE ADMINISTRATION’S TOP
ENVOY TO UKRAINE.
WILLIAM TAYLOR REPORTEDLY DESCRIBING
TO HOUSE INVESTIGATORS
WHAT HE SAYS THE ADMINISTRATION DANGLED
IN ORDER TO NUDGE
UKRAINE INTO ANNOUNCING POLITICALLY
CHARGED
INVESTIGATIONS. AND THEN THERE WAS
THAT OTHER BIG
IMPEACHMENT HEADLINE, THE PRESIDENT
COMPARING THE PROCESS
TO A LYNCHING, A WORD WITH PROFOUND RACIAL
MEANING AND HISTORY.
PETER ALEXANDER IS COVERING IT ALL FOR
US.
>>Reporter: EXPLOSIVE AND DISTURBING, THAT’S
HOW HOUSE DEMOCRATS
TONIGHT ARE DESCRIBING THE CLOSED DOOR
TESTIMONY OF BILL
TAYLOR, THE TOP U.S. DIPLOMAT IN UKRAINE,
DETAILING THE EVENTS
SURROUNDING THAT JULY PHONE CALL BETWEEN
PRESIDENT TRUMP AND
UKRAINE’S LEADER. ACCORDING TO HIS
OPENING STATEMENT,
TAYLOR TESTIFIED OFFICIAL UKRAINE
POLICY WAS UNDERCUT BY
IRREGULAR EFFORTS LED BY THE PRESIDENT’S
PERSONAL ATTORNEY RUDY
GIULIANI, WHO HAD BEEN DIGGING FOR DIRT ON
THE BIDENS AND
ALLEGATIONS OF UKRAINIAN INTERFERENCE
IN THE 2016 ELECTION.
WITH UKRAINE’S PRESIDENT ZELENSKY
WANTING A WHITE HOUSE
MEETING AND U.S. MILITARY AID, TAYLOR
TESTIFIED THAT GORDON
SONDLAND, U.S. ENVOY TO THE EUROPEAN UNION,
TOLD HIM EVERYTHING
WAS DEPENDENT ON ZELENSKY ANNOUNCING HE
WOULD INVESTIGATE,
INCLUDING SECURITY ASSISTANCE.
ADDING THAT SONDLAND
SAID THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTED PRESIDENT
ZELENSKY IN A PUBLIC
BOX BY MAKING A PUBLIC STATEMENT ABOUT
ORDERING SUCH
INVESTIGATIONS. ALL OF IT DIRECTLY
CONTRADICTING THE
PRESIDENT’S REPEATED CLAIMS THERE WAS NO
QUID PRO QUO.
>>YOU KNOW, WHEN THIS CAME OUT, IT WAS QUID
PRO QUO.
WELL, THERE WAS NONE. >>Reporter: THE NEW
ALLEGATIONS COMING AS
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS UNDER FIRE FOR
TWEETING ABOUT THE
HOUSE DEMOCRATS’ IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY,
“ALL REPUBLICANS MUST
REMEMBER WHAT THEY ARE WITNESSING HERE, A
LYNCHING.”
THAT WORD IGNITING OUTRAGE.
>>IT IS VERY PAINFUL,
AND IT IS A DISTRACTION THAT
AMERICA SHOULD NOT
ACCEPT OR TOLERATE. >>TO COMPARE THE
CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS
TO SOMETHING LIKE LYNCHING IS FAR
BENEATH THE OFFICE OF
THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
>>Reporter: MANY
REPUBLICANS CRITICAL TOO.
>>GIVEN THE HISTORY
IN OUR COUNTRY, I WOULD NOT COMPARE THIS
TO A LYNCHING.
>>Reporter: OTHER ALLIES DEFENDING
PRESIDENT TRUMP, WHO
HAS A HISTORY OF RACIALLY INFLAMMATORY
COMMENTS.
>>THIS IS A LYNCHING IN EVERY SENSE.
THIS IS UN-AMERICAN.
I’VE NEVER SEEN A SITUATION IN MY
LIFETIME AS A LAWYER
WHERE SOMEBODY IS ACCUSED OF A MAJOR
MISCONDUCT WHO CANNOT
CONFRONT THE ACCUSER, CALL WITNESSES ON
THEIR BEHALF AND HAVE
THE DISCUSSION IN THE LIGHT OF DAY SO THE
PUBLIC CAN JUDGE.
>>Reporter: WE ASKED THE WHITE HOUSE ABOUT
THAT CHOICE OF WORDS.
>>THE PRESIDENT IS NOT COMPARING WHAT
HAPPENED TO HIM WITH
ONE OF OUR DARKEST MOMENTS IN AMERICAN
HISTORY.
>>Reporter: WHAT’S HE DOING?
>>HE IS JUST NOT.
>>YOU KNOW THAT IS NOT TRUE AND I KNOW
THAT’S NOT TRUE.
HE USED THE WORD LYNCHING WHICH HAS A
DARK RECORD IN
AMERICA’S HISTORY. >>PEOPLE ARE UPSET
ABOUT PRESIDENT
TRUMP’S WORDS ALL OF THE TIME.
BUT WHAT YOU CAN’T
ARGUE WITH ARE THE RESULTS HE HAS PUT FOR
THE AFRICAN AMERICAN
COMMUNITY. >>Reporter: TONIGHT
THE WHITE HOUSE SAID
THAT TAYLOR’S TESTIMONY WAS, QUOTE,
MORE TRIPLE HEARSAY
AND SELECTIVE LEAKS. STILL, TAYLOR
TESTIFIED HE STANDS BY
HIS CHARACTERIZATION THAT WITHHOLDING
MILITARY AID FOR HELP
IN A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IS, QUOTE,
CRAZY.
LESTER? >>A LOT GOING ON
TONIGHT THERE, PETER.
THANK YOU. >>>NOW WORD LATE
TODAY THAT THE
ANONYMOUS GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHO WROTE A
SCATHING COLUMN LAST
YEAR AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS JUST WRITTEN
A TELL-ALL BOOK.
HERE IS ANDREA MITCHELL WITH THAT.
>>Reporter: FROM THE
SHADOWS, THE VOICE OF ANONYMOUS, THE TRUMP
INSIDER IDENTIFIED BY
“THE NEW YORK TIMES” LAST YEAR ONLY AS A
SENIOR ADMINISTRATION
OFFICIAL, WRITING THE PRESIDENT WAS
IMPETUOUS,
ADVERSARIAL, PETTY AND INEFFECTIVE.
NOW EXPANDING THAT
SLASHING CRITIQUE IN A BOOK TITLED “A
WARNING.”
>>PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING TO WANT THE GET
TO THE BOTTOM OF WHO
THIS OFFICIAL IS. HE HAS ALREADY FELT
LIKE THERE ARE LEAKERS
AND TRAITORS IN HIS MIDST.
WE’VE SEEN HIM
FREAKING OUT OVER THE LAST MONTH ABOUT THE
ANONYMOUS
WHISTLE-BLOWER WHO FILED THAT COMPLAINT
THAT HAS TRIGGERED THE
IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS.
>>Reporter: THE DAY
THE COLUMN APPEARED, PRESIDENT TRUMP
ERUPTED.
>>SO IF THE FAILING “NEW YORK TIMES” HAS
AN ANONYMOUS
EDITORIAL, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
ANONYMOUS.
MEANING GUTLESS. A GUTLESS EDITORIAL —
>>Reporter: HE LATER
TWEETED TREASON, AND THE HUNT WAS ON.
THE WHITE HOUSE AND
REPORTERS TRYING TO DECODE PHRASES IN THE
COLUMN, LOOKING FOR
PATTERNS WITHOUT SUCCESS.
THEN CAME THE DENIALS
FROM MIKE PENCE, MIKE POMPEO, THE ENTIRE
CABINET, INCLUDING
MANY NOW GONE LIKE JAMES MATTIS, KIRSTJEN
NIELSEN, NIKKI HALEY,
DAN COATS AND JEFF SESSIONS.
TONIGHT WHITE HOUSE
PRESS SECRETARY STEPHANIE GRISHAM
SAID, QUOTE, IT TAKES
A LOT OF CONVICTION AND BRAVERY TO WRITE A
WHOLE BOOK
ANONYMOUSLY. DUE TO BE PUBLISHED
NEXT MONTH, THE BOOK
WILL COME OUT JUST AS THE PRESIDENT IS
TRYING TO DEFEND
HIMSELF FROM THE IMPEACHMENT THREAT.
LESTER?
>>OKAY, ANDREA, THANKS.
>>>TONIGHT IN SYRIA,
JUST AS A U.S.-BROKERED
CEASEFIRE ENDED,
RUSSIA’S VLADIMIR PUTIN STEPPED IN,
ANNOUNCING A DEAL OF
HIS OWN REPRESENTING A MAJOR CHANGE FOR U.S.
ALLIES, THE KURDS.
OUR RICHARD ENGEL IS INSIDE SYRIA.
>>Reporter: RUSSIA’S
VLADIMIR PUTIN TONIGHT BECAME THE NEW KING
MAKER IN SYRIA AS HE
AND TURKEY’S PRESIDENT ERDOGAN CARVED UP THE
COUNTRY BETWEEN THEM.
ANNOUNCING FROM TOMORROW A LARGE SWATH
OF LAND IN NORTHERN
SYRIA WILL BE CUT IN HALF.
RUSSIA’S ALLY, THE
SYRIAN GOVERNMENT IN CHARGE OF THE OTHER.
THIS HAD BEEN THE
KURDISH HOMELAND UNTIL PRESIDENT TRUMP
EFFECTIVELY ALLOWED
TURKEY TO INVADE IT AND THEN LET THE
FIGHTING CONTINUE.
>>AND I SAY, AND SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS
A GREAT ANALOGY, SOME
PEOPLE NOT, BUT IT’S LIKE TWO KIDS IN A
PLAYGROUND.
THEY FIGHT. YOU LET THEM FIGHT FOR
A MINUTE, AND THEN YOU
PULL THEM APART. >>Reporter: BUT THESE
ARE NOT KIDS AND THIS
IS NO PLAYGROUND. AS KURDS BURY THEIR
DEAD TODAY, MANY
BELIEVE THEY’VE ALSO LOST THE RIGHT TO LIVE
IN NORTHERN SYRIA.
KURDISH TOWNS ARE ALREADY ABANDONED.
EVERYTHING IS SHUT.
EVERYONE IS GONE. U.S. TROOPS HAD BEEN
PROTECTING THE KURDS
HERE, BUT NOW THEY’RE LEAVING, RUSSIA IS
TAKING OVER, AND
AMERICAN ALLIES THE KURDS ARE MOVING INTO
CAMPS.
LESTER? >>ALL RIGHT, RICHARD
ENGEL TONIGHT, THANK
YOU. >>>TONIGHT THE LEGAL
TROUBLE FACING ONE OF
THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE COLLEGE ENTRANCE

HUSBAND, MASSIMO

ENTANGLED IN THE
COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL.
NOW FACING MORE PRISON
TIME IF CONVICTED, THE ADDITIONAL CHARGE
COMES AS THE GROUP OF
WEALTHY AND PRIVILEGED PARENTS REFUSE TO
PLEAD GUILTY AS FOUR
OTHERS DID MONDAY. >>THE GOVERNMENT IS
TURNING UP THE
PRESSURE BY ADDING EVEN MORE CHARGES WITH
THESE SUPERSEDING
INDICTMENTS. SOONER OR LATER, MOST
DEFENDANTS IN FEDERAL
COURT PLEAD GUILTY. >>Reporter: ARRESTED
IN MARCH, LOUGHLIN AND
HER HUSBAND ALREADY FACE MONEYLAUNDERING
CHARGES THAT CARRY A
MAXIMUM COMBINED SENTENCE OF 40 YEARS.
THE NEW CHARGE CARRIES
AN ADDITIONAL FIVE. PROSECUTORS SAY THE
COUPLE BRIBED USC
EMPLOYEES TO FACILITATE THEIR
CHILDREN’S ADMISSION
INTO THE SCHOOL AS ROWING RECRUITS.
THE UNIVERSITY NOW
CONFIRMS BOTH DAUGHTERS ARE NO
LONGER ENROLLED.
>>ANY TIME A FEDERAL CRIMINAL DEFENDANT
PROCEEDS TO TRIAL, IT
IS A MASSIVE GAMBLE. THE STAKES ARE SO
HIGH.
A FEDERAL CRIMINAL DEFENDANT HAS TO
CONSIDER PLEADING
GUILTY BEFORE PROCEEDING TO TRIAL.
>>Reporter: DENYING
ANY WRONGDOING IN COURT, TONIGHT THE
QUESTION FOR
LOUGHLIN’S TEAM WILL SHE CHANGE HER PLEA OR
GO TO TRIAL?
BELIEVING A JURY WILL BUY HER STORY?

  1. What I saw that police officer did to that 11 year old was bad bad he should have talked to her and have her a hug and kind words not a beating he had no no compaction

  2. 911 and emergency services should be funded by the state and feds don't send all of ower ower money on wepons protect us at home first please

  3. Why don't anything gets done about Obama and Hillary Clinton giving 1.5 billon dollar's of taxpayer's to Iranian's leader's at night time behind Congress back. Along with extra million's. They were still in office at the time. Is the media too scared to report that story? What is good for the good is good for the gander. A person is innocent till proven guilty in a court of law.

  4. let me get this straight – university builds bridge. bridge collapses and kills people. University decides to build another bridge. ????? I wonder what happens next.

  5. I meant to say is what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Is Hillary Clinton or Obama above the law? They took taxpayer's money and gave to Iran.

  6. More people going through airport security is definitely a colossal mistake. NO BOARDING PASS? NO ACCESS…….period.

  7. The cop slamming the student doesn't surprise me. The little kid is black and that's what they do. He should be charged

  8. 2 kids in a playground-eh? I watched 5 boys and one girl today hit a tree with a stick for 10 minutes to see what kind of bugs came out. That's what kids do on a playground- FOOL. I would like you to imagine Baron on "said playground." Deplorable.

  9. School Resource officer? He should be aware of the special needs of the students in the school he is working. Fire his has and lock him up.

  10. No thank you Farmington police for putting us on the “International news”.
    Punks. Close your shop and let the people police the community.

  11. The officer deserves jail time.loclin deserves prison time.just because your rich does'nt mean you can bribe your way through life and shouldnt.thats called cheating were others dont have it to do and dont.so the rich should pay for their crime.

  12. With the liberals comedy is DEAD. Even Hollywood won't make comedy's anymore thanks 2 political correctness where no one can be offended since we're all "equal".

  13. She has special needs. If she were a white girl he wouldn't be handling her like that. They should not let these officers resign.

  14. The Democrats need to shut up and accept the fact the President Trump is going to be president again for the second time

  15. Nightly News Of नर-नारायण व इंद्राणी लक्ष्मी बानो के नाजायज़ बच्चों के महान कारनामों की, इनमें से कोई भी सूर्यवंशी महादिव्ययुगपुरुष मनुमहाराज (नूंह,Noah) का वंशज नहीं है सब ब्रह्मा, विष्णु महेश भट्ट (इन्द्र) के वंशज हैं!😘

    वैसे इनके बच्चे बड़े अच्छे हैं सभी सूरदेव के गुणों से ओतप्रोत हैं!😘
    बोलो हरि ॐ, ॐ शांति, राधे कृष्णा, श्री राम, राम राम, सत हैं, ₹इनके वंशज कमल का कमाल, माल मस्त हैं!😘👍👌

    अबराम इमरान नारायण ताहिर खान की नारायणी सेना का PoK पर ख़ूनी खेल का नज़ारा देखों, औऱ अब बताओ इनमें कौन सूर्यवंशी हैं कौन चन्द्रवंशी!?°😘

    वैसे ये मंज़र हर मुल्क में आज दिखाई पड़ रहा है और उनके ही अपने लोगों ये सब घटित कर रहे हैं!😘
    अब बताओ, यहां धर्म, जाति रिश्ते नातो की किसको परवाह हैं भीम अर्जुन कृष्ण की तरह!सब को सत्ता औऱ सट्टा चाहिए, लक्ष्मी बानो के सब भूखे प्यासे हैं, क्योंकि लक्ष्मी बानो मोहिनी जो हैं, पुरी मेनका माधुरी,इंद्राणी द्रौपदी जो हैं!😘
    फिऱ कोई भी देव उसके लिए अपना सब ईमान धरम दांव पर क्यों ना लगाए!?
    क्या तुम छोड़ दो, ऐसी छमक़ छलौ को!जो देवों के जीवन यापन के लिए अति आवश्यक है!😘

  16. I like Trump but this mistake in the middle East is huge you might as well just give Russia all the middle East that was not a wise move and you're fulfilling prophecy cuz you're going they are going to attack Israel . I know it's hard to be the presidentbecause every time you have so much as a bowel movement they want to impeach you for that the libs and the dems but you shouldn't have done that that rush to do what they want putin or puta now thinks he owns you and the United States by proxy

  17. Wow no 911 and this is America are you immigrants sure you want to live here? The streets are not paved with gold in fact the opposite

  18. These "officers" do not learn. They obviously have mental issues. That is the only way to explain treating a kid that way. I feel sorry for whoever lives with this man….

  19. I thought trump was going to fix our infrastructure ???? He has not done anything to fix it. Why doesn't trump fix the 911 problem. He's too busy doing business deals with foreign advisories instead on fixing our broken country.

  20. "it takes bravery and blah blah to publish a WHOLE book anonymously?" I don't agree w. Trump that anonymous equals "gutless" but "brave" ? idk….

  21. Wow protect and serve welcome to the American police system more like murder and do whatever you want we better come together America because these cops are getting real real reckless lately!

  22. And remember any anonymous op-ed or any other statement that is anonymous might as well be graffiti. Take some responsibility for your statements or you're just a hack. It's a very simple thing to understand.

  23. Oh yeah so sweet this is a sad day in America I'll come and save you all I need is probably on the oil somehow I feel like this is the old Germany terms where there are people walking the streets with their hands up high and you have no clue why they're raising them for you just know it's not for you you know is not good and you know it's going to result into something that may not be great for most people

  24. This is why i cant handel fox news. All they've been doing is cleaning up trump's crap. That they leave things like the police man, abusing his power. Hopefully the cop gets worst, then just being fired.

  25. Lesson of the day.🙈
    Do your best, for yourself and other's.
    The end of this day is done.🙉
    None of us watching are going to be allowed to effect change…
    It is all illusions…🙊

  26. Why would you curse that road 😒.. Florida is so simple minded. Prayers for the family and friends. Hope someone can find a better idea.. like as simple as a crosswalk

  31. Wow! I just
    read Ambassador Taylor's entire opening statement LINE BY LINE. It is a
    devastating story of Trump's complete ignorance, putting his re-election over
    national security and the freedom from tyranny that Ukraine is desperately trying to achieve.
    It is a stain on the office of the presidency that T-Rump will leave as his lasting
    legacy along with his withdrawal from Syria. The man is a monster! For
    God's sake WAKE UP AMERICA
    and read the real news and please impeach and remove him YESTERDAY!
