5:03 am
publicly she felt threatened by the president. we have it covered this morning from all angles including the conviction of a long-time trump ally. let's begin with nbc's white house correspondent kelly o'donnell. good morning. >> good morning, speeter. >> reporter: these two state department witnesses are critical because they extend the timeline of the famous phone call between president trump and president zelensky. democrats tried to show the president and his allies were determined to undercut the ambassador to ukraine and get her out of the way, while another witness says he overheard the president talking about the willingness to investigate the bidens. a dramatic new ear witness account in the impeachment inquiry from the state department official based in ukraine who overheard president trump and ambassador gordon sondland talking about an investigation of the bidens one day after the president's july call with ukraine's leader.
5:04 am
david holmes testified behind closed doors late friday that he sat with sondland in ukraine during the call. i could hear the president's voice through the ear piece of the home. holmes told lawmakers, i then heard president trump ask, so he's going to do the investigation? ambassador sondland replied that he's gonna do it, adding that president zelensky will do anything you ask him to. holmes testified sondland later said the president did not give a blank about ukraine but only cared about the, quote, big stuff, meaning the bidens. this new account follow ted several hours in the hot seat for the former ambassador to ukraine, marie yovanovitch, whose testimony prompted unexpected applause. even as yovanovitch was asked about feeling threatened by president trump -- >> what did you think when president trump told president zelensky and you read that you were going to go through some things? >> she's going to go through some things. it didn't sound good. it sounded like a threat.
5:05 am
>> did you feel threatened? >> i did. >> reporter: she soon encountered a real-time swipe from the president. >> ambassador yovanovitch as we sit here testifying the president trump is talking about you on twitter. >> reporter: everywhere marie yovanovitch went turned bad. she started off in somalia. how did that go? >> what effect do you have on other witnesses' willingness to come forward and expose wrong doing? >> well, it is very intimidating. >> reporter: the democracy' impeachment pointman. >> we need to view the president's actions today as part of a broader and incriminating program. >> reporter: but the president denied tampering with a witness. >> tampering is when a guy like shifty schiff doesn't let us
5:06 am
have lawyers or witnesses or to speak. >> reporter: tensions ran high as republicans tried to score their own points. >> mr. chairman, i have a point of order. mr. chairman, i have a point of order zbroo order. >> the gentle woman is not recognized. >> it was a legitimate concern to raise. >> i think that it could raise the appearance of a conflict of interest. >> reporter: and this is a working saturday for the impeachment inquiry. a career official from the white house budget office, mark sandy, will give testimony today and he is expected to talk about the president's delay to deliver military funding to ukraine that democrats say was part of the pressure to get an investigation of the bidens. peter. >> kelly, the president intervened late friday in three cases where members of the military were charged with war crimes. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: this was a big
5:07 am
development. president trump used his pardon power going against the wishes of the pentagon for three members accused war crimes. green beret matthew goldsten was accused of killing a suspected bomb maker and was set to go on trial. also pardoned, lieutenant clint lawrence was convicted of murder for ordering soldiers to fire on unarmed afghan man. the president restored the rank of convicted seal gallagher who was accused of posing wi. >> another member of president trump's inner circle headed behind bars soon. roger stone was found guilty of multiple counts friday related to the 2016 campaign. his conviction the latest to cut out of robert mueller
5:08 am
investigation into election interference. garrick haake has the latest for us. good the morning. >> reporter: good morning. he was found guilty of seven charges related to the wikileaks during the campaign. during the trial prosecutors said stone lied because the truth would be damaging to his long-time friend, donald trump. the self-proclaimed political dirty trickster left court with oo new title, convicted felon. he was found guilty on all seven counts against him, including lying to congress and witness tampering. still under a gag order stone had no comment friday. he down played the charges after his arrest in january. >> i believe it is a politically-motivated investigation. >> reporter: the case against stone grew out of the mueller investigation. he was convicted of lying to a house committee about his efforts to back channel with wikileaks, about the hilary clinton campaign e-mails stolen
5:09 am
by the russians. among the prosecution witnesses former trump strategist steve bannon. bannon said stone bragged about his connections to wikileaks. >> there really was no getting away from the fact that he did lie to congress. >> reporter: the jury also found stone guilty of witness tampering for urging his friend, randy credico, to lie about their conversations about wikileaks. stone told credico to act like a character in "the godfather" movies to lies to congress. he becomes the sixth frum associate convicted. after the verdict president trump tweeted a list of political enemies he calls liars and calls stone's conviction an historic double standard. stone will be a free man until his sentencing in february. he could face up to 20 years in prison but as a first-time non-vie leapt offender he likely will end up with a much more
5:10 am
lenient sentence. stone could receive a presidential pardon, something president trump has refused to rule out in the past. so far no comment from the white house on that possibility since the verdict. >> thank you. jeremy bash was the former chief of staff at the cia and department of defense under president obama. he is now an nbc news national security analyst. good morning. night to see you. >> good morning. >> let's start with this week. we have three witnesses for the democrats, all respected career public service. give us the sort of takeaway at the end of the week of what we saw that was most important. >> i think yesterday was an emotional pivot point because we knew that president trump demanded that the ukrainians investigate joe biden, president trump's possible political rival in the 2020 election. however, we didn't really understand the extent to which president trump and his allies went to great lengths to clear away any u.s. government officials who were opposing
5:11 am
their efforts in ukraine and how much pressure the president directly was putting on the ukrainians. so yet when ambassador yovanovitch testified it was an emotional high point. she said she felt threatened, she felt her security was in jeopardy, and after 30 years of public service to our nation she was fired, threatened and dismissed. >> one of the most dramatic moments yesterday was in real-time. we saw the reaction from the president who attacked yovanovitch as she was testifying. democrats say it amounted to witness tampering. did he complicate his defense? >> i think so. i think his twitter fingers got ahead of him once again and threatening ambassador yovanovitch on the witness stand gave a huge talking point to the democrats to say the president engages in these tactics and undermines republican's efforts to defend him. >> the white house is saying the president is entitled to his
5:12 am
opinion and is allowed to say what he wants. you have to wonder with jeremy holmes who said he overheard the called between gordon sondland and president trump in which they talked about the investigation into the bidens. how damaging do you think this testimony may be to president trump if and when we hear from sondland about this next week? >> again, david holmes another career professional from the state department. not a political actor, someone who devoted his life to public service. he now will testify as we know from his deposition last night that on july 26th the president spoke to gordon sondland. in fact, the phone was being held away from sondland's ear and the president was speaking so loud that david holmes heard the president's own voice demanding the investigations of the bidens. >> another full week of testimony expected next week with several hearings then. jeremy bash, thank you for your perfective. >> the teenager accused of walking into his high school and shooting classmates has died.

in a clinical study, brilinta worked better than plavix. brilinta reduced the chance of having another heart attack... ...or dying from one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor, since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. slow heart rhythm has been reported. tell your doctor about bleeding new or unexpected shortness of breath any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. if you recently had a heart attack, ask your doctor if brilinta is right for you. my heart is worth brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. only roomba i7+ uses two multi-surface rubber brushes. ♪ and picks up more pet hair than other robot vacuums. and the filter captures 99% of dog and cat allergens. if it's not from irobot, it's not a roomba™. ♪ work so hard ♪ give it everything you got ♪ strength of a lioness ♪ tough as a knot
