For just the fourth time in American history, a president will face articles of impeachment. But as Republicans continue to move in lockstep with President Trump, will Democrats stay unified? Plus, what role will the courts play in the impeachment proceedings? CNN political director David Chalian examines the road ahead with CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and CNN crime and justice reporter Katelyn Polantz. via Knit
Another day, another step closer to impeachment as the House Judiciary Committee debated the specific charges formally cast against President Trump. Republicans tried to muddy the waters by bringing up allegations of corruption against the Bidens. Democrats, meanwhile, asked Republicans to disavow President Trump's behavior, if not the man himself. But President Trump and the GOP remain in lockstep, suggesting he'll inevitably be acquitted. Will the impeachment saga ultimately benefit him? CNN political director David Chalian dives into the latest developments with CNN producer & reporter Marshall Cohen and CNN political analyst April Ryan. via Knit
President Trump claims he's not intimidated by the charges against him, calling them "impeachment-lite." But does the narrow scope of the impeachment articles unveiled yesterday give political cover to the thirty-one House Democrats from districts that Trump won in 2016? Plus, the intense partisan divide in Washington subsumes the Inspector General's report about the investigation into Trump's campaign. CNN political director David Chalian is joined by CNN senior Washington correspondent Joe Johns and CNN political commentator Alice Stewart. They compare and contrast the current impeachment saga with the Clinton proceedings twenty-one years ago. via Knit
For just the fourth time in American history, the President faces articles of impeachment. Democrats claim President Trump committed two 'high crimes and misdemeanors' - abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. But did they pull their punches in order to protect center-left members of their caucus in swing districts? Plus, did the FBI director undercut one of the GOP's main defenses of the President? CNN political director David Chalian unpacks a historic day with CNN reporter & producer Marshall Cohen and CNN legal analyst Shan Wu. via Knit
In a rowdy televised hearing, Democrats laid out a detailed case against the President. They focused on four areas of misconduct including abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Republicans aggressively pushed back by attacking the investigators. Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz became the latest GOP official to promote the conspiracy theory that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. CNN political director David Chalian evaluates the strength of the Democrats' argument- and the GOP defense - with CNN senior writer Zach Wolf and CNN legal analyst Michael Zeldin. via Knit
Nancy Pelosi is having a moment. The Speaker of the House has deftly guided her party through the inquiry, but now her caucus faces a massive decision: should the articles of impeachment include a charge related to the Mueller investigation? Plus, how is the White House and GOP preparing for the Senate trial? CNN political director David Chalian reads the political tea leaves with CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger and CNN political analyst Rachael Bade. via Knit
There's no turning back now. Speaker Nancy Pelosi instructed her House colleagues to draft articles of impeachment. What will those articles look like? Will obstruction of justice related to the Mueller investigation play a role? Plus, Pelosi has a heated exchange with a reporter about whether or not she hates President Trump. CNN political director David Chalian previews the consequential days ahead with CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson and CNN legal analyst Michael Zeldin. via Knit
The impeachment inquiry has moved to a new venue: the House Judiciary Committee. Today, four legal scholars - including a Republican witness - provided historical context and explained the intentions of the Founding Fathers when they enshrined impeachment in the Constitution. Meanwhile, Democrats seemed poised to include obstruction charges in the case against President Trump. CNN political director David Chalian dissects today's hearing with CNN reporter Michael Warren and CNN political commentator Mary Katharine Ham. via Knit
There's "overwhelming" evidence of President Trump's misconduct, according to the impeachment report released today by the House Intelligence Committee. While the report paints a damning portrait of the president, none of the facts are new. Are Democrats making a mistake by failing to force testimony from additional witnesses like John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney? Plus, are Democrats pursuing a moral victory at the expense of their political fortunes? CNN political director David Chalian dives into the impeachment news of the day with CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd and the host of 'SE Cupp Unfiltered,' S.E. Cupp. via Knit
December marks the potential beginning of the end for the impeachment inquiry. With a self-imposed deadline looming, Democrats are likely preparing to draft articles of impeachment. Yet the White House is still resistant to participation. And why won't Republicans stop talking about the debunked theory that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election? CNN political director David Chalian looks ahead at the next few weeks in impeachment with CNN senior writer and publisher of the Impeachment Watch newsletter Zach Wolf and impeachment expert and national security analyst at The Washington Post, Shane Harris. via Knit
The courts have weighed in on the impeachment inquiry. A federal judge sided with Congressional Democrats, asserting that the White House can't block the testimony of Don McGhan. What are the other implications of the historic decision? Plus, why does a debunked conspiracy theory keep coming up? CNN senior writer Zach Wolf guest hosts and previews the next stage of the impeachment inquiry with CNN reporters Katelyn Polantz and Marshall Cohen. via Knit
It seems that every politician in Washington has their mind made up on impeachment. Republicans continue to support Trump. Democrats are eager to wrap up the inquiry as soon as possible. In the end, what's the impact? Plus, should Democrats wait for testimony from key figures like John Bolton? And what does a new Washington Post report reveal about the White House's attempt to justify the suspension of aid to Ukraine? CNN senior writer Zachary Wolf guest hosts and dives into the latest impeachment developments with CNN White House reporter Stephen Collinson and CNN political analyst Margaret Talev. via Knit
Democrats have essentially rested their case to the American people that President Trump should be impeached. Will it change any minds among Republicans in the House or Senate? And how is President Trump handling all this? Zachary Wolf, senior writer and publisher of the Impeachment Watch Newsletter, discusses the "never Trumpers" rhetoric the President is pushing with CNN reporter and producer Marshall Cohen. Lisa Moncao, CNN senior national security analyst, also joins the conversation to offer her perspective, as a former federal prosecutor, about the case being built. via Knit
The damning testimony continues as two new witnesses - both foreign policy professionals - appeared before the House Intelligence Committee today. Dr. Fiona Hill warned the House members that some of them were inexplicably believing a "fictional narrative" about 2016 election interference by Ukraine. David Holmes, meanwhile, provided colorful details about Gordon Sondland's phone call with President Trump. CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd guest hosts and gets a prosecutor's perspective on the last few days from CNN legal analyst Elie Honig. Plus, CNN senior reporter Vicky Ward explains how Rudy Giuliani and his associates were able to hijack US foreign policy. via Knit
Does 2+2 = Quid Pro Quo?

Does 2+2 = Quid Pro Quo?

Gordon Sondland didn't just drop a bombshell, he unleashed an artillery. In testimony that might change the dynamic of the impeachment inquiry, the Ambassador to the European Union confirmed the existence of a quid pro quo, linked President Trump to the effort to pressure Ukraine, and pointed a finger at senior administration officials like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence. CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd guest hosts and unpacks a historic day on Capitol Hill with CNN senior political analyst John Avlon. Plus, CNN presidential historian Tim Naftali explains how today's revelations compare to the Watergate saga and why Republicans might finally turn on Trump. via Knit
Lt. Col. Vindman says he never thought he'd have to testify in front of Congress. But he was the center of attention on Tuesday as he described the Trump-Zelensky phone call as "inappropriate" and "improper." He added "I couldn't believe what I was hearing." His emotional testimony - including a reassurance to his Dad that he was safe from retribution - highlighted a revelatory day as three other witnesses appeared in public hearings. Zachary Wolf, senior writer and publisher of the Impeachment Watch Newsletter, guests hosts and makes sense of a consequential day with CNN national security reporter Kylie Atwood and CNN political and national security analyst David Sanger. via Knit
It's going to be a crazy week. Key government officials - including several national security experts who listened in on the controversial July 25th Trump-Zelensky call - are set to testify in public. But the most anticipated witness is Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland. Will he directly implicate the President in the pressure campaign at the heart of the inquiry? Plus, the House is investigating whether Trump lied to Robert Mueller. How does that impact impeachment proceedings? Zachary Wolf, senior writer and publisher of the Impeachment Watch Newsletter, guests hosts and previews the wild week ahead with CNN Senior National Correspondent Alex Marquardt and CNN Legal Analyst Michael Zeldin. via Knit
She says she spent her career fighting corruption - only to be pushed out of office amid allegations of it. Today, former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress and described a corrupt effort to push her out of office and derail longstanding US policy. What message does her dismissal send the world? And was Russia the beneficiary of the Trump administration's Ukraine dealings? CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd is our guest host and breaks down today's historic testimony with CNN senior reporter Vicky Ward and CNN global affairs analyst Max Boot. via Knit
Democrats think they wounded President Trump, but they've thought that before. In an era of political bubbles and fragmented media, yesterday's seemingly damning testimony might not have moved the needle at all. Plus, is the case for impeachment weakened by its reliance on hearsay? And does Rudy Giuliani have a Trump card to play? CNN political director David Chalian dives into these questions and more with CNN White House reporter Stephen Collinson and CNN political commentator Matt Lewis. via Knit
It's a historic day. Two career diplomats told a sordid tale of "crazy" policy decisions, a quest for "political dirt," and an overheard conversation between President Trump and a political appointee. But as they painted a damning portrait of the Trump administration's dealings with Ukraine, the GOP tried to shift the attention to the Bidens. CNN political director David Chalian breaks down the first day of public testimony with CNN political analyst Molly Ball and CNN legal and national security analyst Carrie Cordero. via Knit

I will sum up the last 3 days of hearings from the Democrats: and I quote, "REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" "WWWAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHJHHHHHHH" end quote. In other words it's the same whining we've been hearing since November 8, 2016 in between sobs of "drumpf is finally going down" and "it was her turn/I'm still with her". pathetic.

As soon as Í hear the guy try to make light of what Hunter and Joe Biden did and even tries to engage us in laughing it off he lost all credibility to me.

Wow, all of these trump-bowing snow flakes are raging and it's hilarious. How does everyone believe that the man who's cheated on 3 wives, cheated students out for money, stolen from a charity for veterans, defrauded investors, and has chosen publically to believe Putin over our own national defense is the truthful patriot, while numerous bipartisan public servants are all being called liars and hoaxes? Liberals shouldn't stand with every liberal and conservatives shouldn't stand with every conservative.

Fuck this clown show and the insane and totally childish democratic party. Nothing but a colossal tantrum fit, like a child flopping to the ground screaming and flailing their arms and legs around. You lost! Get the fuck over it, man up and try to win the next one you fragile, whining and self entitled snow flakes! Listen to the ACTUAL hearing!

I am not sure how this propaganda made my push notifications, but i watched these events. Clearly if you say Quid Pro Quo enough it makes it true. Ukraine got nothing for the money...and gave us nothing...on money the US is not even required to give. I realize you hate Trump...But this just made this podcast look like bad.

So, the media has chosen to ignore the second half of his testimony, where he directly stated the opposite, and how the first half was out of context.
