Tax returns. At the end of the Newsday dominated by President Trump openly doing what he has loudly deny doing in private and what he says was his perfect phone call with a you crave today, the president standing on the south lawn of the White House as president solinsky of Ukraine and China’s president as well, to criminally investigated Joe Biden well. I would think that if they were honest about it that started major investigation into the bike, so very simple answer they should investigate and by the way, likewise, China should started investigation into the body. There was US president, openly pushing to foreign governments to criminal investigator is leading political rival. That’S what the lack of our CNN has learned about a call between President Trump and XI of call that was stored in the same Coburg classified system as that Paul with Ukrainian president. So let’s begin with that scene is Pamela. Brown joins us. Learn about this call. Anderson, we have learned that during this phone call with Chinese president XI back in June, President Trump raised Joe Biden’s political prospects as well as those of Cinder Elizabeth Warren by then, according to two people familiar with the discussions, so it shows the president missing foreign policy With domestic politics, and in that call, Anderson Trump also told she that he would remain quiet on the Hong Kong protest as trade talks Pro Now sources. Tell me Anderson other. The president believe that China would not be able to reach it as good of a trade deal with Biden or Warren, as it would have with him cuz. He was fearing that they were going to hold out until after the election to strike a deal. Lighthouse record of that car were told, was later stored and that highly secured electronic system used to house that now Infamous call with Ukraine’s president and which helped spark The Whistleblower complaint complaint that has led Democrats to open an impeachment inquiry secretary Stephanie Grisham. We should note said in the statement to CNN we’re not going to start discussing the comments of every conversation. President Trump has with world leaders other than to say his conversations are always appropriate Anderson, it’s called in June, or what the president said on the south lawn today. This is quite chaotic. We do not want to get into the middle of us politics and won Trump Ally outside the White House described receiving a message from Chinese government officials asking hey is President Trump serious when He suggests China open investigation into Biden. The response investigating corruption is an easy way to earn Goodwill with Trump. Now the Chinese did not immediately clarify if they would be launching an investigation or if they would make it public, if they they do. There was no evidence. We should know Anderson at the former. Vice president receive money from China, and last week one of Hunter by his lawyers told the Washington Post that he hadn’t received any return of compensation on the account of of the Ambassador, his position on the board of directors. So his lawyer basically dismissing these allegations, but it is significant that, in the wake of the impeachment proceedings by the Democrat because of the president call with Ukraine, the president called on China to investigate Biden and now we’re learning that in June, the president raised by in The conversation in the context of domestic politics Anderson, her reaction to Pam’s reporting, saying – and I quote, can say what he wants about me, but it’s outrageous that any president would sell out the people of Hong Kong behind closed doors. The public must see the transcript of Trump’s call with Shih and we need a leader who will stand up forever. Now. Mort new reporting this from The Wall Street Journal on the role that Rudy Giuliani and others played in the president, ordered to remove the ambassador to Ukraine, the one who me later bad mouth on that call to Ukraine president. Don’T answer that reporting vendor who chairs The Wall Street Journal by line on the stories? Also CNN political analysts explain the latest information that you have. The story is in the news that we were chasing on. This is that President Trump is the one who in fact, ordered the removal of the Ukrainian Ambassador earlier this spring and the reason he did that was that he was getting information from Rudy, Giuliani and others outside the administration that the Ambassador was was was was Auntie Trump was was talking poorly about the president and was also blocking Rudy giuliani’s efforts to push crane to investigate Joe Biden, who is obviously a 2020 presidential Mister Trump if he had her removed or somebody else. we’re concerned about the Ambassador as well as all right. That’S totally right after the present was asked why he wanted the Ambassador out earlier today, and he said he couldn’t recall if he couldn’t remember if he recalled her or someone else, I’m not sure exactly what he meant never talked to the president and never talk to Actually Mike Pompeo either so I think that’s definitely true, but we have sources around the administration telling us that it wasn’t back. The president who I was adamant about removing her and now he’s at but but Rudy Giuliani, tells us in our story that he reminded that this has been going on for a while. His investigation is his Pursuit going out for a while. He says he reminded the president in the spring that the president fact had wanted her out and that set off a Cascade of phone calls that included Mike Pompeo and Rudy Giuliani, talking about how to get rid of the bass. So is there any indication that secretary Pompeo did anything to defend the Ambassador who, by all accounts, really haven’t done anything wrong other than apparently not supported this idea of, and did he push back against this story? No one from the White House or the state department or anyone in Government Can Say proof that the Ambassador Evanovich Ivanovic was with a problem and even when Rudy Giuliani goes on television and Joe digenova and some of these other allies, they never actually have a solid Piece of information. to say that you was a problem. It is as to the question about whether Pompeo defended her or protected. Her Giuliani says that he talked to Mike Pompeo to tell him that the state department was protecting her, that the president had wanted her out. For are part of the year and she wasn’t out how she was protected. It’S unclear, but I can tell you a certain date that, at the end of the day, Mike Pompeo agreed with the president and agreed that she had to go.
