"On the House intelligence committee. Schiff is the former chairman of the committee. McCarthy says he's letting democratic leader akeem Jeffries know he has not apparently going to allow the lawmakers on that panel. The speaker has also went out to this week. He's appointed Ohio Republican Jim Jordan as the chair of the new subcommittee on what the GOP calls the weaponization of the federal government stay tuned. Democratic leaders in Congress gathering at The White House to meet with president Joe Biden, talking about dealing with the new House Republican majority and the looming debt ceiling crisis. The White House is stressed repeatedly that Democrats want Congress to lift the nation's borrowing authority without conditions, as the meeting began, the president said Democrats were eager to talk about what he called extreme Republican economic plans. Biden says those plans apparently include cutting social security and Medicare. House speaker Kevin McCarthy is eager to push Biden to the negotiating table. The White House has not yet invited McCarthy for a meeting, but says it plans to do so soon. Norman hall, Washington. I know Virginia state lawmakers can use their campaign funds for personal expenses such as their mortgage or a country club membership say. Now a Virginia Senate committee has advanced to bill that would stop all that. The change is something lawmakers have been resisted to adopting, applause broke out in the room after the bill from senator Jennifer boysko, who represents parts locally, a fairfax and loudoun counties, and three democratic colleagues, along with her past it unanimously. Virginia lawmakers are currently outliers in the nation for their ability to spend money donated to their campaigns on virtually anything. WTO at

"The continuing drama in Washington with ABC's Andy field. While the fourth time still was not the charm for Kevin McCarthy, neither was the 5th, or the 6th, or who knows. We're losing track. Is he once again fails to get enough votes to become Speaker of the House. But freshman Florida Republican Byron donalds doesn't understand why everyone's in such a hurry. Even Groundhog Day in the movie. That lasted about what 9, ten days is only day two, man, y'all settle down. We gonna be all right. ABC's Andy fields on the northwest news line, and Andy, we knew going in that McCarthy might be a tough sell, but I am a little surprised by just how much pushback he's getting from his own party. Well, this is a group of people called the freedom caucus. Interestingly enough, Jim Jordan was at the forefront of this group that is often blocking things that the majority of Republicans want, but this time around Jim Jordan is on Kevin McCarthy's side and there's a reason for that. Kevin McCarthy has given up the story to Jim Jordan. He says, what do you want? I want to be the head of the judiciary committee. It's all yours. I want to investigate Hunter Biden. You got it. I mean, he basically gave him the keys to the car. And so now he's an enthusiastic supporter of Kevin McCarthy, but there are 20 members of that same freedom caucus that do not like Kevin McCarthy. And do not want to see him as speaker. They don't think he is far right enough for them. So right now, Kevin McCarthy is busy behind the scenes negotiating with these 20 holdouts saying, what else can I give you? Do you need a kidney? Do you need me to take you to the movies? Whatever it is, Kevin McCarthy is going to try to give it to them to even lower the threshold at one point. He lowered it to 5 votes needed to basically get rid of Kevin McCarthy if they're not happy with him down the line. And some of the lower to one vote. So any one of these people can basically take over the party. And say, you know what? It's time for a vote of no confidence for Kevin McCarthy, which really puts him in a lousy position. I don't know that he's going to agree to do that here. But at this point, Kevin McCarthy is in real trouble because these folks don't show any sign of backing down. Yeah, at what point do we start talking about a different person for that role? Well, you would think, at this point, after, I think what have we had 7 votes so far? And he keeps coming up short every time. In fact, akeem Jeffries, the Democrat, remember the Democrats are in the minority, has continuously gotten more votes than Kevin McCarthy, 212. I think Kevin McCarthy is stuck at 201. He needs 218. There are various scenarios to get him to where he wants to go. If he could convince the Democrats to kind of go out for a long dinner, say, hey, everyone, Democrats, free pizza in the cloak room, and they all run out and then they hold the vote. That would lower the threshold below two 18, but still he doesn't have enough votes in his own party to even get to that number. And we haven't seen this in a hundred years. Is it possible there could be a democratic speaker even though the majority is Republican? Well, interestingly enough, Matt Gaetz, who is a Republican who seems to not like Kevin McCarthy with the heat of a hundred sons. Actually, according to Kevin McCarthy, he said, we'll vote for a plurality of the house not the majority, which means that all you have to do is get the most votes, which came Jeffrey's getting over and over again. And Matt Gaetz says, we're willing to let Hakeem Jeffries be the House speaker over you. That's how much we don't want you to be speaker. Wow. And until the house picks a speaker, our own patty Murray, second in line for the presidency, a Democrat. Yet another reason I can imagine the Republicans would want to hurry up and make their choice. You'd think, but it's inexplicable at this point why they haven't been able to make a deal behind the scenes, but they haven't. And they're still trying. ABC's Andy field on the northwest news line.

"Attempted to bring bills on this floor to address inflation. But those bills will reject it. We can't start fixing those problems until we elect Kevin McCarthy as our next speaker for unity and Congress and progress in our country. Democrats are united behind akeem Jeffries. Maybe Jim Jordan would be the right person because he wouldn't fight us when we try to put a balanced budget on the floor No persons have been received a majority of the whole number of votes cast by surname. A speaker has not been elected. The back and forth on the House floor has now House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy and his lieutenants abandoned plans since we've been on the air this hour to adjourn the house immediately after convening at noon, moving instead to a fourth vote for the next speaker. We already know that Kevin McCarthy does not have the votes to win this round that is still underway right now. So let's get into it with our panel Bloomberg political contributors. Rick Davis of stone court capital and Genie chansa of iona university Rick and genius, great to have you with us. Of course Ann Marie horde during with me here in Washington, Rick. This moves to a germ, blows up in Kevin McCarthy's face. How damaging was this to what I realized as an esoteric process, but far from a win for the man who would be speaker. Yeah, Joe, by their own evaluation, they didn't have any real changes in the votes last night. So they were just going to recreate the same lack of momentum that they had on the third vote yesterday. So it makes sense that they wanted to avoid it until they see a breakthrough of some kind. But Democrats said, well, we're going to vote for hakim Jeffries. We don't want to we don't want to keep pushing us back. So he doesn't have control of the scenario, right? I mean, Kevin McCarthy would love to dictate to the Congress right now. His tempo, his strategy, his plans, but he doesn't have any influence. He's just one of 435 and right now that's becoming really apparent to everybody there that he really has lost any real, I'd say gravitas in this debate right now. He doesn't control the situation. Democrats and the chaos caucus, the freedom caucus that is opposing him, probably have more influence on what's going to happen next than he does. And one of those big ones Matt Gaetz actually gotten applause when he stood up and just made his vote on the fourth attempt. We had congressman French hill on and he's been going out trying to get these individuals to come on board to the McCarthy side. And he said he's been on a listening tour, which I said shouldn't you have done that a month or two ago, but they said, oh, there's new demands now. At what point do they stop moving the goal posts? Well, I don't think they do. I mean, you assume that they actually want an easy resolution to this problem, right? I think these are people who actually want to relish chaos. They're really anarchists. They're not ideological ideological. And so when they were given everything they wanted, including a one man ability to kick out the speaker, or at least force a vote. Then they said, oh, well, we've got these new demands. We want to be able to decide what committees we all go on. Not everybody. Just us. You know, the freedom caucus hold out. And we want Scott Perry to be the chairman of this super committee that's going to investigate the Justice Department in the FBI. And then he gets to pick whoever his committee is. All these things affect everybody else in the house, right? Nobody else gets to pick what committee they go on. It's the committee committees who decides that. And so they're breaking a lot of tradition and they're putting themselves ahead of everybody else, both Democrat and Republican in the House. And that's causing a lot of stress with everybody else who said, hey, I'd like to pick what committees I said on too. So what happens there is if those demands continue, no matter who tries to be speaker, they're not going to be able to meet those demands. And so this is not a group that is focused on resolution. They are not willing to stop the debate just because they get what they want. They're just going to add new things. And so that's why I think some of these other maneuvers that McCarthy people are looking at, including having people basically vote present to lower the threshold, are likely to be borne out either today or tomorrow. If Jeannie, when did Democrats seize the opportunity here, if these 20 members roughly 20 members are holdouts and can be offered nothing to move in the favor of Kevin McCarthy. Democrats could help and have a few members vote present, for instance, maybe get a power sharing agreement out of this, knock Kevin McCarthy even further down in terms of power for the next two years. Yeah, don't hold your breath, Joe. We already heard Nancy Pelosi walking in today saying this is a Republican's mess. They're going to have to clean it up themselves. We heard Catherine Clark email members of the democratic side saying, do not vote to adjourn. There is nothing better for Democrats than what has been happening in the last 24 48 hours. I mean, look at the split screen. You've got Joe Biden going down to Kentucky with Mitch McConnell of all people to showcase the work that they have done on infrastructure, a new bridge, connecting Covington and Cincinnati. That's the kind of thing Democrats want to talk about, and they want to juxtapose that with what they see as in GOP in the house that is unable to govern itself, let alone the body. And let's not forget, this is not new for the GOP. They have been unable basically to govern themselves in the house for decades now. This goes back to Newt Gingrich and goes up for that last 20, 30 years, and this is what Democrats want to showcase. So they will not help find a consensus candidate in the short term. Maybe in the long term, depending on what they get in exchange, but it's going to have to be a big get for them to want to ease up on this. Yeah, Jeannie, you bring up one of the best points today because the president is about to speak in Kentucky. Administration could not, if they wanted to plan a better counter programming, especially with the cast of characters they have. Gee, she and zano in New York and Rick Davis here with us in D.C. sticking with us more on

"There anyone in democratic leadership under seventy years old. I swear to god i mean. They'll they'll make akeem jeffries into a leadership figure here in short order and he'll be around like fifty or something like that but yeah jamie harrison. J j. j. he he is a leader. That leader is the one that needs to be a quotes election. Dynamo jamie harrison. Yeah no so. I mean look. I know it's going to be a tough sell. And i i think i think turner has. Something's going for her but i also think like there are other key things missing. And she wasn't the right person for the moment and i'm like in a weird way like well i really reviled shawntel brown's campaign especially the canned clapping. I mean like like everything about this campaign sucked ass did breathe a slight sigh of relief when turner lost and it wasn't close only because it did mean looking for silver linings here that were probably done with turner as a candidate which i think is a good thing turner. She'd ran slightly better campaign and had been ready for this end of campaign onslaught that like was almost identical to what happened to sanders. So like like why didn't you see it. You know what. I mean like it's unwanted. Yes democrat establishment establishment. We know this though like you know it's it's fifteen. At what point do you expect. Lucy two pulses all away right. If we get mad disagree point. If we get mad the democratic establishment for falling for the lucy routine it has to also on our people when they do things that are like most obvious outcome in the world. Yeah bill kristol and the democratic. The morning joe crowd are going to decide that shantelle brown the newbies knees and give her the star treatment absolutely bringing a ton of resources to bear at the last moment when you don't have time to respond you don't have time to spin out. That was it's literally they've done it twice now. It's going to happen again and again until it gets a couple times right. And there's one option. There's a number of options. Want all the time i had you scorched brown early. You make it so at the late influence a cash guys a bloomberg effect where like it helps. But it doesn't say that but the way you do that is by scorching because that was the problem for bloomberg. Is it like by the time he got into the race ever he. We all talked about bloomberg at least on some level and it was like not bloomberg no like the and so when he got in he was able of forced the issue but only twenty percent. Yeah that's one move or you have a war chest ready so that when it goes hard at the end you're going hard to almost especially if you're running with the lead. That's the time where you really start pulling in the resources and go like we're gonna blast on that last month year. I will be a week ahead on their final air push and we'll go softened like week three enclosed really hard on week four. You know all of the people who are really good at this sort of.

"Frankly too abrasive to have won that seat She certainly brought. She brought out the fight in jim. Clyburn and then a lot of other members of the establishment including congressional black hawk and and he's other result if the telling blow a b and. I think a lot of people would agree with you gene on that. What does it tell us. Does it tell us about how much democrats generally like joe biden. How tired they are of extremisms and so for a while they just want to take a breath and go moderate. What does it tell us if anything. Well i mean. The democratic party is coming to terms. And you've seen stories about the polling that they're seeing internally and the warnings they're getting about their prospects next year. Joe biden almost did not win this election. And if you're out the votes in california new york it was really close to donald. Trump's second term and the democrats. Like jim clyburn have looked at that data and they're well aware of the fact that progressives when they challenge establishment moderate democrats in primaries. Almost always lose. But they're noisy nece on social media. Their protests are activism their energy and their issues that that prioritize unpopular with the suburban voters the democrats are renting and would like to own and need to turn out next year or stay home. And not vote republican. So this is why you heard jim clyburn in in the transition between november and january in the runoffs in georgia saying deliberately several times. If we talk about defunding the police we will lose in georgia. He was provoked by nina turner into getting into this race when she agreed with someone that it was stupid for him to be playing in this race in endorsing shawntel brown. She is Eugene is right were of combative aggressive candidate anyway but the progressive wing is taking a combative stance. Akeem jeffries who is the heir apparent In line to become speaker should. Nancy pelosi stepped down. Is now having to start a pack with josh. Got heimer who runs the problem solver caucus from the democratic side to fend off the justice. Democrats threatening establishment incumbents in primaries. There is a civil war in this party. And while clyburn and biden has done a really good job and chief of saffron plane at keeping bernie happy and quiet and keeping this under wraps it is a real division in the party is well aware that they will lose badly next year if they allow the progresses to drive the messaging. Well you know this eugene. This loss follows virginia louisiana new york city. But how much of this is about style. And how much is it is about substance i mean. Can you be strong on the issues but not as as some people would say abrasive or you know give those sound bites that a pack on the other side can use to run over and over and over again i mean. Where do you see the the problem here. What's the lesson for progressives. Well in in cleveland in this district Style.

"Is a warning sign to them. The washington post and the rest of the mainstream media will come to bury you. They will call you. Extreme left for voting no on that corporate bill that would make sure that we hand over our bridges and our roads to corporations and privatize them. And but if you dare vote no on that you're hurting biden's agenda your far left and you're an extremist and poor akeem jeffries who wanted to help us corporate. I didn't tell you that i didn't tell you that. Why didn't you tell us about all of his corporate donors. Why haven't you ever told us about that. Because you're not journalists. Your papa ganda for this stablishment and every one of those. We put pressure on. Those progress was in congress but to be fair to them. Every one of them knows that if they ever dare opposed establishment. It won't be other democrats as much as it'll be the corporate media that viciously attacks them and tells everyone that they are their aggressors and it is their fault and they're not good. Democrats get good moderate corporate democrats those beloved people. They just wanted to give everything bridges and make sure you never got a higher minimum wage. It make sure you never got healthcare. And you see how they are. That's the washington post is listen. Progressive like bernie sanders cut into jeff bezos as prophets and executives at amazon's profits by doing incredibly successful pressure campaign that led to them paying their warehouse workers fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage the bitterness toward that knows no bounds. And you can see it reflected in some of the reporting and a to be fair and unfair. I mean to me objective about it. The washington post was always like this before basil spotted to and i don't that basil sends any memos. But the thing is he doesn't have to send members right. He highs the top they hire all the different layers and it was like that before. Basil's came in because all and it's not just the washington post the mainstream media loves the status quo and they think that objective position is to defend what they call moderates. Some have called it. A center spice. I think it's a corporate bias and establishment bias. But whatever it is it is it debuted as their job to say the current status quo that the rest of us find deeply. Corrupt is wonderful at moderate in decent and should never be criticized. Think about the kafka esque absurdity of that they're supposed to challenge the powerful instead. They've taken it as their mission in life to protect the powerful. This is the exact opposite of. What good wasn't this all right. That doesn't for our first hour. We're gonna take a brief break and when we come back we're going to show you exactly what the corporate democrats are up to behind the scenes in terms of legalized. Bribery is a follow up to that.

"Stay tuned are on church. Chinking with you guys now. We've got an infuriating. Start for you. All right well Corporate democrats are preparing for the term elections. Yes some of them are focusing on beating back republican challengers but democrats like jeffries or more focused on raising money to beat challengers progressive challengers to corporate democrat incumbents. So this is a story published in the washington post. I'm gonna read you. A few excerpts from it where they write the jeffries has formed a new fundraising effort team. Blew pack with problem solvers caucus co chair. Josh gottheimer and new democrat coalition. Co-chair terry a see well The group will focus on protecting incumbent members of congress safe. This is key in safe democratic seats that are not a focus of the house democratic campaign committee so these are areas. That are very blue. You don't have to worry about a republican coming in and taking that seat but what corporate democrats want to do is prevent a growing progressive caucus. And when i say progressive caucus. I'm not talking about the current giant progressive caucus which consists of all sorts of people who are actually progressives. They want to prevent individuals who are like members of the squad like representative alexandria. Ocasio cortez or ilhan omar or rashida to leave Jamaal bowman you get the picture. So team blue has indicated that it will defend at least two incumbents representative danny davis from illinois and representative carolyn maloney from new york to liberals who face fresh challenges from young women of color backed by the justice democrats. Now both of the incumbents do take corporate pack money They take large dollar donations. And of course a part of being a justice democrat. is that you reject. That legalized bribery. And so Kina collins is challenging davis and illinois's seventh congressional district and here's what she has to say about it quote. I think it is completely backward. And i think it's hypocritical of representative jeffries and quite frankly representative davis who have both challenged incumbent before. He bullied corey. Bush and he bullied morgan harper. Who ran in ohio and now he's trying to bully me and row and rana and so Jeffries by the way Started his political career in new york by challenging incumbent democrat in the state assembly. Just something you should know about. Now who's rana while she's the individual who is Challenging maloney Rana ability meade a google employee who also works as a women's empowerment and self defense activists has been endorsed by the justice. Democrats to challenge maloney abdul hamid campaign announced on monday that it raised four hundred eleven thousand two hundred sixty five dollars in the second quarter which is more than malone has raised in the first three months of the year and so this is a pretty aggressive effort. Jeffries claims that this pack That's meant to protect these. Corporate democrats has already raised one point four million dollars and it is concerning when you want to pursue this inside outside strategy right insure that we elect real progressives into congress who have priorities like medicare for all in the green new deal and then apply pressure from the outside which by the way our wonderful members have done in the form of forcing a senate floor vote on a fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage. And we think our members for that. If you want to be part of that. I like that you can join and become a member by clicking. That joined button if you're watching on youtube or going to ty t. dot com slash joined. But jank i know you have a lot to say about this story so take it away. So there's two different parts of the story. One is what the these democrats are doing. And is how the washington post covered Particularly enraged what about The washington post coverage I'm going to get to that in one. Second i about the people who are doing this now. Remember the news story. Is that Akeem jeffries and josh gottheimer was one of the most Pro-corporate democrats in the country takes tons of money from payday lenders and make sure that he passes bills to help them a senator. He's part of the soco problem solvers caucus. I believe that exxon mobil lobbyists pointed out how they use that particular caucus to kill any legislation. That might hurt oil companies and the democratic coalition. Co-chair terry a that. These folks are getting together to form team. Blew pack a pack. Whose whole point is the attack. Progressives to raise money. And i've asked washington post figuring do follow ups and dave weigel has said publicly that they will follow up to see where they raise money from guarantee right now it's going to be corporations lobbyists independent expenditures et cetera. So the point of this story is these folks are getting together. To attack progresses. There's the washington post framing. Wait not at all okay. But one last before i get to them gottheimer but it's part of how they they quote gottheimer is saying if you're spending all of your resources and time fighting with each other instead of fighting the other team. That is a huge distraction. Now remember this is a story about how he is forming a pack to fight other democrats now the washington post point that you know. They just ran his quote uncritically. Oh here's this. Beloved gottheimer trying to do unity by gathering millions of dollars to attack fellow democrats and you can see how those far left people are the ones who are at fault and and gottheimer is. The victim is preposterous coke. Least at the very least point out. That does seem a bit hypocritical. Here as we're telling you a story about how he's doing a pac ten attack other democrats okay. The now. let's get to the heart of the washington post problem. First of all the headline democratic surface housing government's plan defense against far left primary challengers. What the hell kind of headline is that. Who determine who's far left even call them progressives that's what they the progressive wing of the democratic party. Call them left wing but far left there are left. Says these people are illegitimate and you should never vote for them. Far left implies that they are radicals and they're not credible and the washington. Post doesn't know that. Of course they know that the whole point of that headline is to smear progresses and his say now. Remember everybody hakeem jeffries. On these beloved corporate democrats are the victims and their the good guys and the others are far left. Now they're gonna pound that home throughout here By the explain by the way this is hilarious. Part of the story. Jeffrey says accused. The original squad was just democrats of being white interlopers. There isn't a single white person in the original squad. A alexandria ocasio cortez. Ilhan omar a tally by presley. They're all people of color corey. Bush jamaal bowman people of color white interlopers. No hakeem jeffries is a clown and by the way the another thing that the article does is it. Assumes that came jeffries is one of the legitimate contenders to become next speaker of the house. Now he might be a contender. And that's fair to covered in the context of others but no this makes us seem like he is legitimate and credible. He's a good democrat. Who's going to be the next speaker. Poor guys just starting up pack corp pack to make sure he attacks other democrats ob outrageous is the four left but it gets worse and worse the washington post editorialized in the middle of the story. About how the democrats have to quote. Avoid the fate of republicans who repeatedly found themselves to divided along ideological lines to pass legislation when they had the majority now. They don't say that in the context of the pack that started to attack fellow democrats. They say it in the context of can you believe that justice. Democrats are doing primaries of other democrats. Almost all of these democrats got an office by challenging ed other democratic primary right but now that they're incumbents the washington post on their side because they have to serve the powerful. They've made a joke in a mockery of journalism in this country. And then they get into phoning praise of jeffries They say tis hilarious. He has cast himself as a leader. Who can bridge the democratic donor community. And the party's activists base for themselves that way but then you should point out the absurdity of that they activists based despises jeffries. In what way. Kim jeffries and act i. I've seen him be an activist and advocate for himself. I mean he's been eyeing leadership position. He's been eyeing. The i mean he's fourth in line for house speaker. According to how they pay their dues or whatever they do.

"Coming up At 106. Are good guest, Dr Carol Lieberman. Why would some people need to be bribed to go back to work? Very much in the news in the Commonwealth of Kentucky this week. What's the thinking behind people who simply don't want to go back to work? We are going to talk with her and then down the road. The tragedy of that condo collapse in Surfside in southeastern Florida, Rob Cain, who is someone who has been involved in a number of lawsuits. Involving mass catastrophe like that is going to stop buying whether or not what we're hearing now about information that might have prevented this. If that does now leave The people that own that condo built that combo in tremendous, tremendous financial jeopardy. I think they are one way or the other, but we'll find out and then teacher and comedian Mr De Joe Dombrowski. He's going to be at the funny bone on Tuesday night, but he's going to spend some time with this series of kindergarten teacher who in a spare time. During his down time in the summer tours, comedy clubs and most of what he talks about his clean all of that, and much, much more. All right. So there is a bill that is coming up about to be written up by the House of Representatives with regard to Big tech and the strangle hold it has on everybody. You me anybody else that uses things like Google and YouTube and Facebook and Twitter and all things like that. There's no question That those particular companies, among others enjoy great protection under what is known as section 2 30. 2 30. Which prevents really any kind of attack outside of Well outside of anywhere. It is literally an antitrust exemption that these companies enjoy. And they're in enjoy great censorship, particularly over those with the conservative point of view. Now there's a bill that has been introduced as I said, but the sponsors of the bill Are four guys that were part of a trump impeachment hearings. They were impeachment managers, Jerry Nadler. David Cicilline, D Joan Argus and Akeem Jeffries are the four impeachment managers that are crafting that bill now Jim Jordan from right here in Ohio raised this particular thought this week, he said. How much do you think a bill written by those four guys? Are going to protect or is going to protect a conservative viewpoint. And of course, the answer is none. But it is something that the house is starting to take up. And it is going to get great scrutiny and it is going to get great pushback. But again, the damage ruled the day in Washington. They can write up anything they want and if they all walk in lockstep, and they do a very good job of that hell of a lot better than the Republicans have in their history. Well, then that Bill is going to get by the house and into the Senate. We'll see what happens, something else. That's interesting. Joe Biden has named tech critic Lina Khan to share the Federal Trade Commission. And in doing so, he made it clear that he is dead serious about antitrust enforcement and other members, measures to rein in Google, Facebook, Apple and Amazon. But again He's dead serious about it, and he's put four guys in charge that we're dead serious about getting trump out of office or Getting Trump run up on charges in the wake of January the sixth. So where is the where is not just the teeth in this? But where is the objectivity in this? Wait a minute. That's right. It's Washington, D. C. Standing by somebody that knows all about techies, Our tech guy whenever something pops up, Tech anything that has to do with anti trust and big tech we bring in Adam, Missouri, chief marketing officer, Agency partner, Interactive Agency partner Interactive. And he's standing by the way on this right now, and it's amazing, Adam. You know you and I've talked a lot in the past. It's amazing to me that anybody thinks that anything coming out of Washington is going to have any kind of teeth when It comes to dealing with big tech, but But here we are. Here we are. What do you think? Yeah. I mean, sometimes I look at my pugs and I feel like on a daily basis. They might get more done than our lawmakers in D. C. You know, why would they want to do their jobs? It's actually really great to see you know, in last year can over the course of certainly the last like 8 to 12 months or so we've been watching. As many most all of our state sort of filing lawsuits against Big Tech. Just this past December, 35 states, including Puerto Rico, Guam and even Washington, D C file, legislators filed litigation against Google in respect of How they self preference their own platforms, right so their own products. You know, you have companies out there like hotels dot com that offer great travel deals and try to get competitive pricing for for hotels and flights. Google, of course, has Google flights and they have the ability to prioritize in their own offerings above those of some of their other martial, rely on the online visibility in the online platforms to get customers so Well, I search for flight when I search hotels, Of course, Google flights shows up first, and then I see maybe something from Travelocity Year. There's some of the other players in the market that really specialize in this stuff. So you know, Ken, I think we might actually see something happened here. Um, just because I mean there has been a lot of bipartisan support for this topic. We've seen a lot of lot of talking right over the last year, and finally, it seems that there's a plan. And the plan really kind of homes in on those those things that allow big tattoo really kind of edge out the smaller guys in the market, um and prioritize themselves to make a buck. And you mentioned Lina Khan just a bit ago. Lina Khan. She is man. She she's smart. She is energetic. She's young. She's like 32 years old. But don't let that for you. That just means that she's not going to stop any time soon. Um Lina Khan is really known for her argument that That Amazon's retail businesses should be separated from its selling platform, uh and known for advocating broad updates with any trust laws to deal with digital age problems so we might see something you've done here. Well, it's interesting. We'll see. My guess is if Linda Connor is 32 years old, that Google has been part of her life for most of her adult life, if not longer than that explain if you could What happens when you me anyone goes on to Google and types in a search word. Whether it be you pick it. It doesn't matter Could be medicine. It could be a question about medicine. It could be a question about real estate. It could be a question about a sports team. It could be a question about A local store. What happens? What does Google do with that information? Because they're not saying Okay, See you. Next time We'll see what you search for next time. What happens when you do a search like that? You know, the the craziest thing is what happens when we're like right before you actually do the search. Um, you'll notice you might type half of that search word right? You might half of that word and Google skills in the plane for you. It's really incredible.

We get details from W. T. O P S. Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy opposes the bipartisan bill, which would create a 10 person panel equally divided between the two parties. Despite McCarthy's opposition, the chair of the Democratic Caucus Akeem Jeffries, Says his party won't provide the only votes for the bill. Let's see how many Republicans support us, but we know we will have Republican support. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has some concerns about staffing related to the commission. But for now is taking a wait and see approach to the legislation. I think we are pushing the pause button here Taking a look. The commission would not include any current members of Congress on Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller W T. O P News, CNN Congressional correspondent Ryan Nobles told us this morning. The bill will likely pass in the House. But the Senate will be a different story. Still an open question. Right now. There's obviously more moderate members on the Republican side of the Senate, who have also been skeptical of President Trump's role in all of this, but this is a very political conversation. When you talk about setting up this commission, it could be Mick. What happened with the 9 11 Commission. It could mean Wall the wall television coverage of their hearing and put a lot of Republicans who make questionable decisions January six on the spot and that could be difficult for them in the midterms. Ryan says. The bill still has a long way to go and its chances in the Senate are uncertain.

Story from CBS is correspondent Laura Podesta a big announcement from the top prosecutor in New York.

Impeachment trial: House managers push for witnesses
"Right now lawmakers are taking a break Senate stands in recess they spent much of the morning hearing from house impeachment managers of people like house intelligence house intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff also congressman chasing crow of Colorado and Akeem Jeffries Democrat from New York they talked about the two articles of impeachment they're winding down on the first which is abuse of power to Davis can you talk a little bit about one or two of the points they made a little along those lines in in terms of the abuse of power charge in the piece of power well I think what she was trying to do today I mean the first two days of this of these arguments Democrats laid out a very meticulous timeline of what happened to the key players were and what and what was wrong about it today was really I think that it time to hit the sort of constitutional high notes what are the bigger constitutional progress here what are the bigger at national security questions and I think Adam Schiff in his closing arguments sort of pulled no punches this was his last best case to make and it was really striking to hear him not just talk about the articles of impeachment and what's outlined in the July twenty fifth phone call but to go back to things like president trump's comments standing next to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki when he questioned intelligence US intelligence about Russian influence in trying to hack the twenty sixteen election I think we have that moment hold on one second he's promoting this cookie crazy server theory cooked up by the Kremlin right next to the guy the cooked up it's a breathtaking success of Russian intelligence I don't know if there's ever been a greater success of Russian intelligence whatever profile Russia did of our president boy did they have him spot on the kind of evokes the days of the Miller report what what do you think she was trying to do here is focusing so intently on trump's relationship with Russia I think he was trying to make a broader case that the president is a threat to the country and that his argument here is that if you have a president that welcomes foreign interference and then also has a president that seeks it out to benefit himself over the national interest which is the case the Democrats have been trying to make then that is the most impeachable offense because once a day elections in a democracy are in question that's sort of the whole ballgame right so I thought his rhetoric was at least I think he took some risks here I think it is the kind of rhetoric that could alienate some of the senators he's trying to appeal to although I also think that shift knows what we all know is that there are not sixty seven votes to remove this president from office I wanted before we get too far down that road I do I want to bring in the east Orozco because this gets at what the White House has to accomplish in the next few days from its legal team are they going to for instance defend against those kinds of moments right moments that are on tape our that our public it's not a denial of things the president has done what I I think what they will do and especially with the you know him with shift bringing up Putin is they will argue that this is just an extension of of the the mylar at the mall or special counsel investigation that Democrats weren't able to get the president with that so now they're trying to get it with to get him will on Ukraine this idea that Democrats really overstepped a when they were talking about the Russian investigation that the the president of the Russian asset is is that what you're saying I think you'll hear a lot of that sort of thing and I think when it comes to these ideas of like the tape that they were playing you already see some Republicans pushing back not necessarily on what the president was saying but pushing back on like some of the the the the witnesses that testified like you ambassador Gordon sorry because we should say throughout this opening statement period we have been seeing clips from the house intelligence committee and the Judiciary Committee hearings and they've been playing almost like a highlight reel from that period yes and so what they're going to point to is silence saying that he was never told directly that aid was linked to up the aid was linked to the opening of these investigations or to the White House visit that this was his presumption so you're going to hear a lot of people saying that they didn't know directly that there was bribery or that there was anything like that going on and that some they're going to argue that these were assumptions being made to Matt can I bring you in on this because the other defense kind of force they are if the president's proxies that people in the gallery right senators who were coming out in between breaks and let X. essentially defending him right well that there are a number of different groups among Republicans some who say they're concerned with the president's conduct but this is not something that that we should remove the president from office over and then there are other Republicans who say well you know there's that the president did nothing wrong from beginning to end in a big a big line that's being used right now is on the issue witnesses and on the issue of the subpoena documents is look if we do go forward on this issue we had we pretty much know the president isn't going to be removed from office and subpoenas for documents and witnesses we'll just read this process out even when we know what the conclusion is going to be that it's going to take weeks and weeks and weeks to get additional evidence and come to the same conclusion this is something that congressman Adam Schiff tried to head off a little bit this morning said he said that that line of argument was nonsense that this is quote not a trial over a speeding ticket or shoplifting that an impeachment trial was very serious and it takes more time essentially it should take more time I want to play one more clips from the leading peach men manager Adam Schiff here's what he said in his final remarks the president trump used Ukraine's leader for political favor and with held critical military aid to an ally in exchange for that favor he did exactly what our framers feared most invited foreign interference in our elections and sold out our country's security for his personal benefit and betrayed the nation's trusts to a foreign power Ron Elving this essentially sums up the week so what should what are you going to be looking for listening for next today was the day that the issue moved on from Ukraine to really being focused on Russia and suse already mentioned the really moving tape that we saw from John McCain and this is ultimately why this all matters a great deal more than it might if it were strictly a technicality the Russia issue the Russia relationship the Russian confrontation and the suspicion that works around this president that he is not sufficiently confrontational with Vladimir Putin and that he's done many things that have helped Putin's world planning so this is a critical moment really if if that issue can break through if that can be the salient that senators take home with them then this will be a very different three days then it would have been without that particular connection so we'll see now in the remaining hours whether or not the obstruction of Congress evidence the extraction of Congress descriptions that we'll hear from the Democrats will be equally effective were equally powerful as what we just heard from Adam shin right although that charge is essentially saying to the White House the White House did not cooperate with the investigation into itself that is correct little different from
