Moh news 1000 FM 97 7 It's not just D. C. A lot of questions are being asked about how a pro trump and he masked group of about 100 was able to breach security and march right up to the front door of the Washington Governorsmansions. Almost Jeff Pooja leg got the latest from Cuomo's Matt Markovich. Have we seen any reaction from lawmakers from the Legislature? What have they said? Yes. Basically asking this say very same questions. This could've been really bad. What happened here? There needs to be better protection and not just for the governor, but they know they see what's going to happen on Monday when the state legislation legislative session begins and they have to be there for that one day, and you and I have both covered legislative sessions. We've got down there and it's been easy, You know? Granted, we're usually wearing our press badges walked right up the steps into the door. I mean, you show your badge to the security guy. You go to the floor of the house or the Senate. And unlike the U. S capital, there are no magnetometers. At the Washington capital.

Unless you have a reason to be there. Your legislator, you have a job to do. Their jokey public cannot enter on Monday. So are we expecting lawmakers to hold hearings on this in the session that begins in a few days? No hearings. I think it's I think my understanding is procedurally. They're going to call for a vote it Z. They have to Make the request and all the lawmakers have to vote as majority in person to go virtual to do a different way of voting in the way a hold hearings. But in order to do that first step, they all physically have to be there. Now that we know as with any session, there will be protests are always our protests on variety of topics. People happen, do it all the time. And for what we're hearing from the normal protest groups. They will continue to do so even though they're going to be on the virtual session almost likely if they vote to do that, which they most likely due on Monday. So on Monday, we anticipate there will be protesters there on Monday. Now the one organizer that kind of help organize the one On Wednesday has called off a similar protests from Monday.
