"All the pillars of stability that we thought preserve peace and stability for the past 70 years he's just knocking them down one by one", former Defense Secretary Cohen says.

Regarding Trump's controversial July 25 phone call with Ukraine's president, Kelly said it changed longstanding US policy and that Vindman reported it because is was tantamount to hearing "an illegal order". "When you call a foreign leader, people listen".

"By stopping the practice, the president only shoots himself in the foot", he said. One thing that worries Cohen is what Trump has already done to erode checks on his ability as President to protect himself from scrutiny.
