Senate expected to pass measure curbing Trump's war powers

Kelly said that for Vindman, it amounted to hearing "an illegal order" when Trump told Zelensky he wanted to see an investigation of Biden and his son Hunter Biden, who had sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.

"Well, it's a awful thing and, you know, I think of Nixon more than anybody else and what that dark period was in our country and the whole thing with the tapes and the horror show", Trump said. "If he's reelected, I think we will be hard pressed to say we live in a democracy where you have checks and balances and the rule of law because he doesn't believe in the rule of law - he believes in the rule of one", says Cohen. "At the end of the day, the president is entitled to staffers that want to execute his policy, that he has confidence in, and I think every president's entitled to that". "I don't know if can say "retiring", but he's a great guy".

The White House clamped down on the distribution of those memos earlier in the Trump administration after information about the president's calls with other heads of state, including Mexico's, were leaked to the media, according to two people familiar with how the distribution became more limited.

Trump said he'd never met Vindman as far as he could remember. "First of all, that's very insubordinate. Why wouldn't he go to his immediate-you know, he went to Congress or he went to [House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam] Schiff or he went to somebody".

Kelly also criticized Trump's handling of North Korea, saying Trump's efforts to end the regime's nuclear program through diplomacy are futile.

President Donald Trump (R) and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky hold a meeting in NY on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly on September 25, 2019.

Trump was acquitted on both articles of impeachment, abuse of office and obstruction of Congress, last week by the Senate.

But Trump did not directly address Kelly's specific criticisms in which he attacked the president on several domestic and foreign policy issues throughout the 75-minute appearance.

"I'm not a fan of Vindman", Trump added. Just so you understand, many of these people I've never met.

Lee publicly signed onto the measure after a contentious closed-door January briefing on Iran with Trump administration officials.

There is no doubt that a presidential veto will defeat the measure, since its supporters lack the two-thirds majority required to overturn a White House veto. LTC Vindman was asked to leave for telling the truth.

"In fact, they're overwhelmingly good people". The move would bring the council staff "back to a manageable size", O'Brien said Tuesday. Following the resignation of the U.S. attorneys, Attorney General William Barr, who approved the lessening of the sentence to be imposed on Stone, criticized Trump, saying his public statements made it "impossible to do my job".

O'Brien also denied that Vindman had been fired, but instead reassigned to a different military detail.

Representative Elissa Slotkin, a Democrat who co-sponsored the legislation, said in a House floor speech, "If our loved ones are going to be sent to fight in any protracted war, the president owes the American public a conversation". "It's not a right".
