White House Official Who Listened To Trump Call Says Readout Had Key Omissions: Report

Westlake Legal Group 5db8e5262000009933507292 White House Official Who Listened To Trump Call Says Readout Had Key Omissions: Report

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the first person to testify as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry who personally listened in on Trump’s July 25 call with the Ukrainian president, told House lawmakers that the White House reconstruction of the discussion had key omissions, The New York Times reported.

Vindman, a decorated Army officer and the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, appeared in front of lawmakers for more than 10 hours on Tuesday, the latest official to defy White House orders to share their direct knowledge of the call that set off the impeachment inquiry. According to his prepared remarks, which were obtained by HuffPost, he said he twice reported his concerns about the call and about President Donald Trump’s demands for a quid pro quo involving military aid and political dirt to one of his superiors, worrying that the exchange could affect national security. Trump reportedly sought a probe of political rival Joe Biden and his son, along with investigations based on conspiracy theories about 2016 campaign manipulation.

But Vindman, who testified before members of three House committees leading the impeachment inquiry, also shed new light on the White House reconstruction of the call, which was released last month. Vindman reportedly told the lawmakers that the document omitted crucial words and phrases that he attempted to see put back in the readout: Some of the changes were ultimately made, but others were not. He did not speculate on the reasoning behind the omissions. 

The Wall Street Journal later confirmed the Times’ reporting. Vindman’s lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.

The Times noted that the missing words do not change the basic contents of the document and there are several other examples of Trump pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for politically motivated investigations. But the Times reported that they provide more context about a number of questionable ellipses in the readout and raise further questions about how the White House handled the transcript of the call, which was stored on a secure server usually reserved for highly classified material.

Vindman, a decorated Iraq War veteran who was awarded the Purple Heart, also told lawmakers on Tuesday he didn’t think it was “proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen,” saying he was troubled that any investigation would “likely be interpreted as a partisan play.” He said he reported his concerns several times to a superior on the National Security Council and defended his actions, saying “any good military officer should and would do the same.”

His lengthy testimony on Tuesday drew praise from Democratic leaders. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said he hoped Vindman’s “example of patriotism will be emulated by others.”

“I want to say also how deeply appalled I was at the pernicious attacks on him last night on Fox,” Schiff said, according to The Washington Post. “The suggestion that because he’s of Ukrainian origin he has some kind of dual loyalty — this Purple Heart recipient deserved better than that scandalous attack.”

But Trump allies spent most of the day attempting to smear Vindman and his potentially damning testimony, which echoed that of other senior administration officials who voiced their concerns about the president’s demands that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter, who had served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.

The Army officer’s history in the military, however, was hard for some Republicans to ignore. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) refused to “question the patriotism of any of the people coming forward,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) called Vindman a “decorated American soldier,” and Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) said that attacks were “inappropriate” and called the man “honorable.”

Democratic leaders said this week that they will vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry on Thursday amid blistering criticism from Republicans who have accused the party of holding the hearings in secret. GOP lawmakers have been involved in every hearing thus far.

The Washington Nationals avoided elimination by beating the Houston Astros 7-2 in Game 6 of the 2019 World Series and forcing a Game 7 in Houston on Wednesday.

But even a Series-defining Game 7 could have a tough time matching the tension and drama of Game 6 which featured a controversial call that appeared to kill — at least temporarily — a Washington rally.

Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg was the winning pitcher, lasting eight and a third innings, striking out seven while allowing only two runs on five hits.

Stephen Strasburg brilliant as Nationals overcome deficit, controversy to force Game 7 vs. Astros

HOUSTON — This World Series is going to the Max.

In a back-and-forth Series featuring unprecedented success for the road team and the steely resolve of two clubs now far beyond proving they are championship caliber, the Washington Nationals forced a winner-take-all climax by prevailing in a battle of towering aces and redoubtable sluggers, riding their greatest hitter and most dominant pitcher one more time to set the stage for an unforgettable climax.

Max Scherzer, summoning a miracle cure somewhere between a Saturday cortisone shot and a cross-country flight Monday, will take the ball in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday night, a championship up for grabs after a Game 6 on Tuesday night that cemented several legacies and sullied several others – including Major League Baseball’s.

In the end, the burgeoning October legends of Stephen Strasburg and Juan Soto were not to be denied. Strasburg has pitched in six games in these playoffs and the Nationals have won them all, none more important than Tuesday’s taut, gut-wrenching and occasionally absurd 7-2 conquest of the Astros.

The road team has now won every game in this World Series, a grim harbinger for the Astros in Game 7.

Also not great for Houston: Scherzer, taking the ball for as long as he can after hurriedly healing from nerve irritation in his neck that rendered him unable to lift his arm Sunday morning.

Scherzer was scratched from his Game 5 start, and the Nationals pointed toward a Game 7 with him starting, which seemed a longshot for many reasons after the Astros claimed Game 5 and a 3-2 lead.

But Scherzer pitched on flat ground before Game 6 at Minute Maid Park, told reporters, “I’m good,” and then warmed up in the bullpen as if he might make a relief appearance.

But Strasburg, Soto and the Nationals both suppressed the Astros and kept Scherzer in line for Game 7.

Strasburg bulled through 8⅓ innings to beat the Astros for the second time in this Series, and his October resume sparkles even brighter.

After striking out seven, his playoffs look like this: A 6-0 record, a 1.98 ERA, 47 strikeouts to just four walks, and most important: Dominant performances in three elimination games.

He rescued Scherzer with three near-perfect relief innings in the NL wild-card game. Positioned the Nationals to win a decisive Game 5 in the NLDS at Los Angeles. And then Tuesday, overcoming a two-run first inning to out-duel Justin Verlander.

The Nationals even survived an objectively bad call from home-plate umpire Sam Holbrook, who called Trea Turner out on interference despite Turner’s maintaining a straight line all the way down the basepaths to first.

A 4 minute, 34-second replay review upheld both the call and the return of Yan Gomes to first base, and Nationals manager Dave Martinez was ejected after raging at the umpires after the inning.

He should have relaxed: Third baseman Anthony Rendon rode a Will Harris pitch and an apparent karmic wave out to left field for a two-run homer that accounted for some crucial insurance. He later tacked on a two-run double in the ninth.

But it was Strasburg who will be remembered most on this night – and probably for time eternal by Nationals fans should they win Game 7.

Strasburg delivered his biggest gut-punch to Houston in the fifth, moments after he was handed a 3-2 lead. A one-out double by George Springer put the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position, and one of the game’s greatest hitters, Jose Altuve, at the plate.

What happened next almost defied logic: Strasburg getting Altuve to chase three off-speed pitches out of the strike zone. Two outs.

Michael Brantley then scorched a 102.7-mph short-hopper at shifted shortstop Trea Turner, who snagged it nimbly and threw to first. Threat over.

Moments earlier, the 21-year-old Soto slugged his fifth home run this postseason and third of the World Series, a towering drive off Verlander to give the Nationals a 3-2 lead. Soto carried his bat all the way to first base, a glorious rebuke to Astros All-Star Alex Bregman’s bat tote after homering off Strasburg in the first.

Two batters before Soto’s shot, Verlander gave up a game-tying blast to No. 2 hitter Adam Eaton, once again failing in his seventh attempt to win a World Series game.

Verlander’s seven-start World Series dossier after his five-inning, three-run effort: 0-6, a 5.66 ERA and nine homers surrendered in 38 career innings.

It was the second time in three years he failed to win a Game 6 that could have given the Astros a championship. They bailed him out in 2017, winning Game 7.

Wednesday night, they’ll have to go through a surprise nemesis – and a team that long ago proved it will not die easily.

Meghan King Edmonds breaks silence on husband’s alleged affair

Westlake Legal Group edmonds-getty Meghan King Edmonds breaks silence on husband's alleged affair Nate Day fox-news/shows/the-real-housewives fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment/genres/reality fox-news/entertainment/events/scandal fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc f3edc3f7-c04d-53c7-b0a7-96b97a53c3bd article

Meghan King Edmonds, star of “Real Housewives of Orange County,” addressed her husband’s alleged cheating scandal in a lengthy blog post on Tuesday.

Meghan’s husband Jim Edmonds on Monday denied allegations that he had an affair with the family’s nanny, Carly Wilson, according to People magazine. Wilson also denied the allegations. According to Us Weekly, Jim filed divorce papers on Friday.

In her blog post, titled “Broken,” Meghan discussed the hurt she felt over her husband’s “sexting” scandal in June. The former baseball player admitted that he “engaged in an inappropriate conversation” with another woman who was not the nanny, but denied physical infidelity.

“Out of respect for my children and my family, I find it unnecessary to go into all the gritty details,” Meghan said. “What I will say is that, in the wake of the sexting situation, my husband was drinking and partying with much younger women, including several of our babysitters, and I found this galavanting inappropriate, immature and downright odd.”

She continued: “While I initially wrote it off because during several of these outings, his 22-year-old daughter was present, given his previous indiscretions, I was uncomfortable. Even more so when he started lying about where he was going or who he was going with — and deleting entire text conversations on his phone with several of these young women.

“For the record, after the sexting affair he had agreed with our therapist that he would be totally transparent and never delete messages or conversations and he would also keep his location available on his phone,” Meghan pointed out.

She then addressed a photo of her husband and the nanny at a hockey game, according to People.

Meghan, 35, claimed that “Jim repeatedly lied about” the outing, so she asked her husband to include her on texts he sent to the babysitter, to which he said “no.”

“Another major red flag,” she said. “To be clear, I don’t know if Jim slept with our babysitter or whether they were just being exceedingly inappropriate by hanging out socially without either of them telling me (and Jim expressly lying to me about it). I’ve gone back and forth with my thoughts for a couple [of] days but as I write this, I don’t think he did. But I still don’t understand why he’d lie. And why would she lie?”

Meghan also recalled tabloids finding out about her divorce proceedings, despite never making a public statement.

“I am broken for my family,” she said. “I am buried in despair. I cry at the drop of a hat. But I am enduring. I will set an example for my children and I will teach them to love and respect people while also knowing how to condone unethical or wrong behavior. I will facilitate healthy, consistent and ongoing relationships with their father and with his family despite the hurt I feel from them because my children should not reap the karma of my personal situations.”

A rep for Jim Edmonds did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

New Jersey Democrat bucks House trend, says he likely won’t back impeachment resolution

Westlake Legal Group trump-Pelosi-VanDrew New Jersey Democrat bucks House trend, says he likely won't back impeachment resolution Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-jersey fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics fox news fnc/politics fnc article 18d8916d-fe50-59ba-9c91-d8acc63cc511

A Democratic lawmaker from New Jersey says he doubts he will vote in favor of the resolution introduced by his party Tuesday to formalize an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., introduced the resolution Tuesday that sets forth rules for the probe, but Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., said he hasn’t seen anything “impeachable” yet and doesn’t think he will vote for it.

“I would imagine that I’m not voting for it,” Van Drew told a reporter from NBC News.

Van Drew, who narrowly defeated his GOP rival in 2018 in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District, has openly criticized impeachment, saying it would further divide the country and put members of his party at risk in the 2020 elections.

DEMS INTRODUCE RESOLUTION FORMALIZING IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY PROCEDURES

He is among a handful of Democrats who continue to lean away from a formal push for impeachment despite ongoing depositions of witnesses by three House committees spearheading the probe.

Van Drew’s office did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Democratic Reps. Kendra Horn from Oklahoma, Joe Cunningham from South Carolina and Anthony Brindisi from New York — who all won GOP districts last year but remain vulnerable Democrats in the House — said they are skeptical of impeachment and hedged about the vote to frame the impeachment inquiry.

Similarly, Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., who clinched 52 percent of the votes in two consecutive elections between 2016 and 2018, is at risk of losing his seat next year in a district that Trump dominated by 31 percent in 2016.

GOP leaders introduced a resolution last week pressuring House Democrats to hold a vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry against Trump that centers around whether or not the president engaged in a “quid pro quo” and attempted to persuade Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into former vice president and 2020 candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter in exchange for military aid to Ukraine.

Democrats finally caved on Tuesday and introduced the resolution, but several Republican lawmakers still decried that they are not being given enough time to review the resolution before the vote and continued to blast impeachment proceedings as a whole.

A vote on the resolution — which will only formalize the procedures of the investigation and not actual impeachment itself — is scheduled to take place on Thursday.

Nationals’ Trea Turner out on controversial interference call; manager Dave Martinez ejected in Game 6

We just witnessed one of the most bizarre calls we’ll ever see in a World Series game.

With the Nationals leading 3-2 in the top of the seventh and Yan Gomes on first, Trea Turner hit a dribbler in front of the plate. It was fielded by pitcher Brad Peacock who threw to first, but the ball got away from Yuli Gurriel as Turner ran into his glove.

Momentarily, it appeared that Turner would end up on second and Gomes on third, but umpires signaled that Turner was being called out for interference.

There was a long break as umpires went to their headsets and took a closer look, but interference is not reviewable. Turner could be heard yelling in the dugout about umpires should consult with Joe Torre, MLB’s Chief Baseball Officer.

Instead of second and third with no outs, it was a runner on first with one out.

However, Anthony Rendon would hit a two-run homer with two outs to extend the Nationals’ lead minutes later.

Between innings, manager Dave Martinez was still livid and got ejected for a confrontation with umpires.

A Pennsylvania mother was arrested Monday after allegedly handing her 1-month-old baby to a bus driver before walking away and abandoning the infant, according to a report.

Police said the woman allegedly got on a bus in Bethlehem on Saturday and handed her baby to the driver before walking away, WPVI-TV reported.

The mother, identified as Ashley Walters of Whitehall, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of child endangerment, the station reported.

Walters, 26, reportedly boarded the bus and then placed her son on the farebox. According to the criminal complaint, Walters told the driver to “call the police and that this was her son that she can’t take care of,” WPVI reported.

After she exited the bus, she reportedly walked away in tears.

Police later found Walters just a few hundred yards away, according to the news outlet.
