3:18 am
and i'm going to quote him all hell's going to break loose in washington tomorrow. said it's not going to be anything like what you expect. so what does that mean? did he actually know that they were eventually going to have hundreds of riders actually break into the capital? very, very close to injury law makers. that was what the subpoena was for this january 6 commission said ok, we want to talk to you under oath. we want your records, we want sort of documents and he said, no, he said, i'm citing executive privilege. that's what the former president is saying that they can't have his records because of executive privilege. problem with that is, he's no longer the president and executive privilege lives with the current president. joe biden has said, no, i'm not going to give you executive privilege on these documents. so bad and said he wouldn't do this is all lawyer asked for a delay. the committee basically just said no, no delay unanimous decision 9 to 0 to send it on to the full house. i'm proxy. so what happens next to bottom then, and what kind of criminal case mean?

3:20 am
the president's party, in power loses in the next mid term elections. their concern as he delays, is long enough that they don't ever get those answers were taught. republicans take back charge and basically bury the inquiry. so there is some time pressure here. but the other factor here is there, dissipating dozens of witnesses, documents. they're sending a message to all of the other trump allies, fake face real penalty if they don't comply with this house subcommittee. so i sending the message to not only band and but everyone else, as the chairman said, we're not going to take no for an answer on this or to a bicycle hang live for sand, washington dc. patty, thank you. now pictures of emerged of damage caused by government dance strikes on the capital of ethiopia. to grind region, at least 3 people were killed. and macaulay strikes came days after new offensive was launched against to grow forces to say to a news agency says communication equipment was hit, the conflict in the north has been ongoing for almost a year and thousands of died. meanwhile healthcare work as in ethiopia to grow
