12:00 pm
to 1:00 eastern happening after fox and friends. in the meantime, shannon bream is next with brand-new details on the transcripts that may be coming out. check it out. >> shannon: breaking news right now from the fox news desk at an all transcript from a key witness in the impeachment inquiry just released a couple of minutes ago. house democrats just released a closed-door interview from state department official george canned and sources have said it includes a bombshell. i am shannon bream and new york digging through it right now, fox news journalist combing through 355 pages of the testimony. we will be bringing the key parts all throughout this coming hour. this is another player in the impeachment inquiry talks to house lawmakers again today in private. today's witnesses jennifer williams whose details from the state department of vice president national security advisor. a trump administration official tells mike emanuel that williams was on maccallum and
12:01 pm
president trump in ukraine's president. has repeatedly said it was a perfect call and that he's done nothing wrong. we have fox coverage. mike emanuel live on capitol hill but first, gillian turner reporting live. >> chairman adam schiff just released that transcript of george kent's testimony as you mention from a 350 pages long about 5 minutes ago. we have a team on the ground here going through it quickly. going to tell you what we do know about his testimony before even opening this transcript. according to sources familiar with the testimony he gave for ten hours behind closed doors to the intelligence committee, he raised red flags about how the trump administration was managing u.s. foreign policy towards ukraine. and that he began doing so over six months ago. they also say he flagged to rudy giuliani's role in conducting official u.s. policy towards ukraine despite the fact that
12:02 pm
rudy giuliani was not a government official at the time. i'm going to read you an excerpt from the chairman of the committees managing the impeachment investigation. they sent a letter just now sort of cover page letter to accompany this transcript from kent. and so from the chairman of the intelligence foreign affairs and oversight committee, they write "the testimony of deputy assistant secretary of state george kent strongly corroborates testimony from numerous other witnesses. mr. kent affirms that he and his colleagues recognize the impropriety of pressuring ukrainian officials to take politically motivated investigations to help president trump's reelection prospects in 2020. i can tell you we know from our sources here on capitol hill one of the primary purposes that the investigators feel can testimony observed was to back up testimony that had been given by
12:03 pm
fiona hill. fiona hill used to be president trump's top in-house advisor of the white house on russia and europe. we are going to continue going through all of these pages now and we will bring you the highlights and things that jump out to us as being key as we get them. >> shannon: trying to read through it here too while breaking the story, interesting that last night an attorney spoke up and said perspective of the he had given that they were fabricated conversations and that she never had coffee with him. took about one instance where they have coffee or drinks. so they were a number of witnesses and the legal counsel going back and forth over what is accurate. five people see something and they can describe it five different ways and in this case, it is one that is an potentially international significance. we will let you get back to work as we continue to comb through it. thank you. to congressional correspondent mike emanuel reporting live from capitol hill with more as we go through this testimony.
12:04 pm
>> good morning to you, the star witness of today was supposed to be for me national security advisor john bolton, but bolton declined to come to capitol hill to testify in this impeachment inquiry. a house intelligence committee officials saying the committee would welcome his deposition but his attorney has told lawmakers he would take it to court if he was subpoenaed. the concern for house intelligence is any court fight would tie things up for months. meanwhile, the star witness called to testify tomorrow is also not expected to appear. white house and acting chief of staff mick mulvaney has been asked to give a deposition behind closed doors. republicans close to the white house say they don't blame his reluctance about participating in this probe. >> i don't trust the process and that the houses being fair. that he wants to call witnesses on his behalf, i hope you will have a chance to do that in the house mother inquiry is going on. it's been done differently in the house than any time in the history of the country because they want to get trump and they are not looking for the truth.
12:05 pm
>> today, the senate democratic leader suggested republicans are getting desperate. >> they are reaching as far as they can because they know the facts at least as we have heard from the house if they do. but the facts are so damning about what the president did. >> on that, the two parties are quite likely to disagree. >> shannon: so what have we learned about republican request to hear from the whistle-blower himself or herself directly? >> that's absolutely right, that is something house republicans want to see happen as they head into a new public phase of this impeachment inquiry. republican congressman jim jordan of ohio sources say once had to have the chairman of house intelligence adam schiff call the whistle-blower appeared to capitol hill to testify in the impeachment probe. meanwhile, the whistle-blower's attorney has taken some heat for a january 2017 tweet, who has started. the first of many steps, hashtag
12:06 pm
rebellion, hashtag impeachment will follow ultimately. telling fox news "those tweets were reflective and repeated the sentiments of millions of people. i was referring to a completely lawful process. what president trump would likely face for stepping over the line and practically whatever would happen would come about as a result of lawyers. they added the coup comment refers to those inside the administration who he said were basically looking to keep the president following the letter of the law. >> shannon: very busy day there. thank you for weighing in. i'm a senior producer for capitol hill, you have been instrumental in combing through each of these is they have gone public, each of the transcripts and there are many things we are seeing. >> a couple of things i will point to be here. the first of them looking at this here. there was one section here where
12:07 pm
again, this is george kent, the state department official who raised red flags about the ukraine policy and the involvement of rudy giuliani in ukraine. here is a quote from kent. at one point, we had been carrying on a campaign for several months full of lies and incorrect information about the ambassador. so this is a continuation of his campaign of lies. as i go through the first couple of pages of this, one thing that jumps out at me here is that they say they were early efforts to try to undermine the ambassador. these are the associates of rudy giuliani and they were trying to "impugn her loyalty," and a name we have heard rattled around about this is former republican congressman. for the first time, we have seen pete sessions name pop up in this transcript from george kent
12:08 pm
here. kent says there was a campaign of slander from rudy giuliani and he felt he had been cut off from the process pertaining to ukraine hook and his position that the state department was the kind of manage policy in that part of the world and he said that basically, the ambassador to the european union and rick perry, the energy secretary took over ukraine policy at that point. so those of the first three or four major takeaways that we get there and notably, the involvement at least according to george kent of pete sessions and talking about these two giuliani associates. >> shannon: they are in the headlines for a lot of reasons that are not pleasant for them. but they are going to turn up in many of these conversations. i want to ask you about this as well. 1 of our fantastic producers is combing through this as well. he notes that republican congressman lee belden asked kent about whether or not he had direct knowledge. you have firsthand knowledge of
12:09 pm
united states aid to ukraine ever being connected to the opening of a new investigation? his reply on the transcript shows i do not have direct knowledge, no. your thoughts? >> this is where republicans, gives you an insight into what their defense is here. number one, who had direct custody of information on the telephone call that the president had with the leader and also, did they definitively see a quid pro quo? this is why tomorrow we don't think he is coming but the acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney has been summoned for an appearance before the intelligence committee because mick mulvaney came out a few weeks ago at a press conference on the white house briefing room and said there was a quid pro quo. and he dialed it back and that's why some here on capitol hill on both sides of the aisle said you can't put the genie back in the bottle. had that been put to rest have those words not come out of mick mulvaney's mouth? the administration and certainly republicans on capitol hill who try to defend the president would've felt they were on the former turf. that is the problem, but that
12:10 pm
goes to the essence of this because had they not tilted in that direction, that keeps the issue of quid pro quo alive and again, looking at who was on the phone call. the other thing here to watch it sometime between now and saturday morning specifically 11:20 saturday morning, republicans supposedly are going to have to submit their list of witnesses to adam schiff, the chair of the judiciary committee as to who they want at those two hearings next week, wednesday and friday. under the agreement they have 72 hours from the announcement of those hearings yesterday. so they get to provide witnesses i spoke with, one republican sourced earlier today who said they were still going through the list. one person they might want to have is kurt volker of the special envoy to ukraine. some people have said they might try to question the whistle-blower or even adam schiff but again, adam schiff the chair of the committee based on that resolution passed by the house of representatives last week, he has veto power over this and the
12:11 pm
other unresolved question is whether or not they can put jim jordan, republican congressman from ohio on the intelligence committee. he has been in the room for most of these closed-door depositions but he is not a member of the intelligence committee. the two hearings next week that are open are by the intelligence committee and so republicans have to see if they can stall him on that committee. they would have to take one of their own off but because it is a select committee, nancy pelosi the speaker of the house has veto power. i am told they don't think she would veto in this sense but the republicans are trying to put their best match up on the field to match up against the democrats during those hearings next week. >> shannon: i noticed in the letter that went out from the house until chairman last night, he gave three very specific parameters of the republicans to say if you're going after this, they have to meet these three criteria or else we are not going to consider them as valuable or worthy as being part of this process. that certainly put some guard rails on the selections that republicans would like to make it as you said, if he has gotten veto power, it's hard to imagine
12:12 pm
their most favored witnesses will get a chance in the spotlight. >> how do democrats finesse this? on one hand, they've been criticized about being heavy-handed in creating this process, so if they start to veto witnesses, does that backfire on democrats and play out in the court of public opinion where it appears they are being too heavy-handed. by the same token, they passed that resolution last week for house speaker nancy pelosi saying for a long time they didn't have to have a resolution like that but to use your term, it gives democrats an advantage in the process. who can be called and what committee members are going to be there limiting this to the intelligence committee trying to get the best match up on the field has but democrats are trying to do. i had one senior republican say to me yesterday that the reason that republicans on the intel committee are not as strong as because they do most of their work in private that's why there get jim jordan back onto the intelligence committee. >> shannon: stick with us, we always appreciate your insight and getting through this stuff
12:13 pm
and learning important things very quickly. thank you. want to turn back to gillian turner reporting live on capitol hill as we dig through. >> we told you we would bring you breaking key highlights from this testimony as we got it so here we go. we have two for you right now. first up, learning that george kent told congressional investigators he had no knowledge of what the democrats are calling a quid pro quo. that is president trump's pressuring of ukraine, president trump's alleged threats to withhold military aid from ukraine in exchange for getting ukraine to investigate joe biden. so congressman lee belden enclosed door testimony asked george camps do you have any knowledge of it ever being connected to the opening of a new investigation? kent replies i do not have direct knowledge. important they are in the sense that kent is assistant secretary
12:14 pm
of state, sort of a mid-level advisor so clearly whatever was going on didn't trickle down to him. the next thing we are going to bring you, ken says he learned in february about rudy giuliani's involvement policy from a ukrainian official. says giving a meeting and a ukrainian official let him know that the prosecutor general of ukraine had made a private trip to new york in which he met rudy giuliani. he said he didn't know what the purpose was. he also said the purpose of the trip for the campaign was to grow mud. he asked mud at who? and he said a lot of people. towards you and towards others. so we are figuring out here that george kent knew rudy giuliani was involved in this campaign to oust her as long as of nine months ago. >> shannon: gillian turner

12:20 pm
purposes as they found the trump foundation officially closed on december 18th 2018. the court pointed specifically to a fund-raiser for the president had on january 272016 in iowa to benefit veterans charities. he remember the president held that event rather than appearing at a fox news political debate. the court ruled the fund-raiser was actually a campaign event and out of trump foundation event. in addition to the $2 million he has to pay as part of the settlement, president trump admits to personally using funds, agrees to restrictions on future charitable service, must report any new charitable activity to new york's attorney general and there must be mandatory training on charitable operations for donald trump jr., ivanka trump, and eric trump. new york attorney general letitia james saying the trump foundation has shut down funds that were illegally misused for being restored. the president will be subject to ongoing supervision by my office as they had to undergo compulsory training to ensure
12:21 pm
this type of illegal activity never takes place again. the court had criticized the trump foundation for giving his campaign full control of the nearly $3 million that was raised during that charitable event back in 2016. saying mr. trump campaign rather than a foundation plan to organize the fund-raiser directed the timing and amount to recipients of the foundation's grants to charitable organizations supporting military veterans. i got a statement from the trump foundation spokesman saying "the trump foundation is pleased to donate an additional $2 million following the 2016 presidential election. the trump foundation publicly announced its intention to voluntarily dissolve and distribute all of its remaining funds to charity. unfortunately, that donation was delayed due to the attorney general's politically motivated lawsuit. not that this matter is concluded, the trump foundation is proud to make this additional contribution. >> shannon: all right, john roberts live at the white house. thank you. let's turn back to our senior
12:22 pm
producer for capitol hill digging through the transcript, the latest one from george kent and one interesting thing is they were two tracks it seems were running policy with regard to ukraine and also it seems that a number of these witnesses while they have had questions and some of them concerned about what was going on, it seems they are pinning most of this on rudy giuliani and not directly on the president. what you find in? >> that is something i was told was a bit of a strategy by the democrats here to try to undercut rudy giuliani and we saw that in the transcripts the last couple of days to build that case against rudy giuliani and that is something we saw a very prevalent in the testimony here from george kent. a couple of things that i have seen here just in the past couple of minutes and again going through this in real time here. bill taylor who is the acting ambassador to the ukraine told kent that an advisor to the president of ukraine was uncomfortable with investigations and how this was
12:23 pm
being handled and then went and told taylor that they shouldn't be doing this as u.s. policy. the other thing that we have seen in here is munich are expecting his transcript as early as tomorrow. he came back to the capital today to review his transcript that they do so that there is nothing that shows up in the transcript that might reveal classified information or classified programs and went to kent here and said that he could not share information about the details of the phone call that president trump had with the president of ukraine. and kent said i could hear that there was a hesitancy in his voice. now what we are getting here and this is something that republicans are probably going to seize on is that it is interpretation. we have people who start to flag this. there was concern about the phone call, there was concern by the whistle-blower, but it is up to interpretation and republicans are going to say wait a minute, this is how you
12:24 pm
felt about that. some people might point out that if you are feeling those things, the problem something that's wrong, something we hear here in washington that if you're going up to an ethical line that just doesn't feel right, perhaps you shouldn't go there. so that is something that these officials who were connected and seeing what was going on with policy towards ukraine or being apprised at least around the periphery of the telephone call between the president and a great leader of ukraine. republicans again will counter with that defense and say they may not have had direct custody of the information or they don't really know what the policy was and that was not the case and they would try to use that line of attack to say these are based on feelings and interpretation. >> shannon: that is a theme we've seen. of all the reactions of these various behind the scenes definition. . will get back to you, thank you very much. let's check back with gillian turner live on capitol hill. >> is we are continuing to read
12:25 pm
through this, we found on page 77 of these transcripts of familiar face brought back to the floor which is paul manafort. president trump's former campaign advisor. he has been under a lot of hot water lately because of his lobbying work that he did in ukraine and work that he did here in the united states on behalf of ukraine in this deposition asked directly about his role, how the ukrainian government viewed paul manafort and whether there was any pushback in terms of the work that he was doing and i'm going to read you what he says. george kent says i think it would be accurate to say given what president did to the country which was loot tens of billions of dollars that there were many ukrainians who impart blamed paul manafort for that success. because he proves to be a brilliant political technologist and giving her advice that helped him win the presidency. he is then asked do you think
12:26 pm
people in the united states supporters of president trump saw this information come out of ukraine may have wondered if this was an effort to attack the president or when he was counse counsel? so all of this again goes on rambling for quite a while. at the point here is that congressional investigators are really trying to zero in about the role of paul manafort. this is new. we have not seen them do this with other witnesses. another thing to point out is george kent told the investigators that it was mick mulvaney that president trump's direction that ordered a security assistance hold on all of the military aid, hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid to ukraine. so in this testimony, he has asked was there any discussion of the meeting at the level on july 8th about any sort of freeze of the security assistance to ukraine? kent says yes.
12:27 pm
he goes on to say it was described as a hold, not a freeze. he then says mick mulvaney, the acting chief of staff told us at the direction of the president he had put a hold on all security assistance to ukraine. so the chain of command laid out by kent in that scenario goes from president trump to acting chief of staff mick mulvaney. this is part of the reason why the investigators and the democrats here are so eager to speak to mick mulvaney tomorrow. they have summoned him but no indications. >> shannon: wouldn't that be an interesting development? >> i can't imagine how crazy they would go if he did show up. >> shannon: it would definitely rile a lot of people up, so we will see because in this new cycle, you shouldn't be surprised by anything. thank you very much for digging in. our breaking news coverage continues ahead, also all knew this afternoon, i'll speak with

12:33 pm
weeks earlier, his doctor had said he was healthy after a routine check out but in 2010, his heart stopped while he was working on a puzzle. found him lying on the floor of their home and now says wants to make sure this never happens to anyone else. in 2013, she cofounded aidan's heart foundation, an organization which provided 800 free heart screenings for kids and infants in pennsylvania. nearly two dozen of those screenings have found conditions that could cause sudden cardiac arrest for it has also teamed up with the peyton walker foundation, another organization working to prevent sudden cardiac arrest trying to pass a law that would encourage parents to get their kids at screens during physicals that i have to get before things like participating in school sports. kristy silva joins us live. it's an honor to have you with us. i can't imagine as a parent what a shock it must've done for you, just had a physical and you had no indication there was a problem. >> no family history, the doctor gave him a high five essay left
12:34 pm
his visit. unfortunately, it was the only six weeks later that he collapsed and died. >> shannon: what did you find? and i'm sure those days that must've followed just trying to find answers in the middle of that. >> i had never heard of it honestly and when i did the research to try to find out what it was and what causes it, i was astounded that sudden cardiac arrest wrecks about 9,000 children every year. one out of every 300 children has an undetected heart condition that could possibly cause cardiac arrest. >> shannon: are there things in the moment that have happened that someone around can do to try to preserve their life? >> absolutely. we teach life-saving skills throughout the foundation. about 80% of the public is not trained, doesn't know how to stabilize very simple easy skill so we feel very passionate that teaching kids and teaching
12:35 pm
parents who can be bystanders at sporting events for kids can be the first ones to start cpr immediately, apply the eeg and of course the very first thing would be to call 911. >> shannon: so what is your best advice to parents, grandparents, guardians of these kiddos, what should they ask for, anything extra when they have one of these regular physicals or screenings? >> parents should really be attuned to their families health history, cardiac death or events under age 50 in the family is something that really needs to be paid attention to and follow through with. parent should also listen to their children about how they feel when they run. do they feel like their heart is beating quickly, do they faint? that can be a sign that something is wrong with the heart. they need to listen to their kids and see how they feel, not just fill out a participation form. >> shannon: i know you said you think aiden is working through you and you are doing something amazing taking a
12:36 pm
tragedy that most of us could never imagine in using it to save other lives and help other families. tell us about him. >> he was one in a million. i know we all feel like that our kids are. he was extremely sweet, he was a very good caretaker to his little brother and that's how i feel like he is still taking care of kids. working through me through the foundation. >> shannon: has a very busy full life and with the foundation as well, tell us about the opportunities for people to find your web site or other ways. >> people can go to we are a member organization of parent heart watch. you can find out where you can have your children's heart screen to the local community. >> shannon: that could be life-saving advice, you are out there using your pain to do so much good for others and we know you've already had hundreds of these screenings. so i know there have been lives directly impacted already because of what was found in the

>> shannon: we are waiting to see if there's any reaction from the white house for the release of the latest transcript of the closed-door hearing this time of george cabot, a state department official. we are digging through it and see what the white house has to say in twitter may be the first place we get it. let's go back to gillian turner now who is reporting live through the whole thing. i understand you have dug up among other things some information about something that nobody had heard of and headlines all the time now, what can you tell us? >> that's why i wanted to flag it for you. we're hearing a lot in the headlines lately about charisma holding this, it's a company that has been on the firing line for president trump from lots of republicans here on the hill. they are upset about the fact that a former biden sons had a beefy paycheck to do so while joe biden was serving as a
12:42 pm
vice president. in this newly released testimony now, we are getting some insight into how the company itself is viewed in the ukraine so i'm going to redo that now. this is what kent said. he said the company which is actually a major player thanks to all the licenses he granted to himself when he was a minister, a reference to the former minister of ecology in ukraine is a serious gas producer but the reputation in the industry as a company that throws elbows and uses political strings with a legitimate company but it does not have a good reputation in ukraine. he is asked because i had a history of corruption because it has a history of not just competing on quality of service. is that a euphemism for activities? he says he was the minister and he granted himself licenses to explore. but you're agreeing with me, right? and finally, kent says yes. so essentially admitting to congressional investigators that
12:43 pm
charisma is not a company that has been on the up and up not viewed favorably inside ukraine by the ukrainian public. >> shannon: great nuggets you are pulling out there. also doing the same thing our senior producer on capitol hill. what have you got? >> three or four other nuggets, this is from george kent again, he says that rudy giuliani was almost unmissable in mid-march and he ramped up his twitter feed focused on ukraine at that point. democratic illinois representatives as a senior member of the intelligence committee. he asked the question to george kent why was ambassador recalled? and he said that the prosecutor vowed revenge to provide information in hopes of her removal. there's also a section here where they're talking about they were working actively to try to undermine and met with pete
12:44 pm
sessions, former republican congressman from texas and then wrote a letter impugning the integrity. and then here's another interesting part of the transcript we have just come across here. george kent is talking about the ambassador to the european union. he said that he talk to president trump and trump one of the ukrainian leader to go to the microphones and do nothing but order investigations of biden and clinton. we don't know if that means both biden's, hunter and vice president biden, so that's an interesting thing there in terms of what george kent was saying but they're going to say this is based on interpretations and what people thought was going on. may be the truth and it may not be. >> shannon: thank you very much. one of the fbi's most wanted fugitives may be ready to give himself up. investigators say he ran a phony car dealership in new jersey scamming customers and banks out
