McConnell says Trump was "practically and morally responsible" for Washington, DC riot after voting not guilty

"Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell delivered a scalding denunciation of former President Trump calling him morally responsible for the attack on the U. S Capitol. But before that, of course, he voted not guilty in the president's impeachment trial. Joining us for more is Ken Walsh, White House and political analyst for U. S News and World Report. Can it looks like that High wire act continues for many Republicans and their relationship with the former president. Well, it does. And you know, this basically is a rebuke to President Trump because It was 57 to 43 vote to find him guilty of inciting the insurrection, But it failed to reach the 67 votes two thirds needed to convict. So it was a majority vote, including seven Republicans. Of course, what it is basically, it's it's sort of an outcome without a conclusion and It's um there's still a special congressional commission that's going to proceed to look at the events of January 6th when the capital was invaded. At the state level their investigations of President Trump's conduct and trying to overturn the election in Georgia and in New York. So This really has not resolved very much, And there's a lot of sense of disappointment really around Washington as to how this has all come out. Wasn't worth doing. And, of course, this such a ferocious partisanship in the air that, um, the House managers and the Democrats who pushed this field was worth doing because President Trump needed to be rebuked. But of course, he was not convicted. And so a ZAY say there's just the sense that this is, um This does not really resolve anything and that we're just as polarized as we had been with President Trump with the center of that of former President Trump in the center of that. And, um, we're gonna be talking about this, Uh, for well into the future. Did you find it interesting, though, that McConnell pointed specifically to criminal courts is a possible future forum for this kind of thing for the president. The former president? Yes. Yes, he did, And he sure almost invited that to happen. On But, you know, they're just step back and look a historically, um, in our first um, really two centuries we have one impeachment of Andrew Johnson 18 68. Ah, then, 130 years later, we had, um The beginning of appeared where we had three Bill Clinton. In 1998 and then Donald Trump twice in 2019 2021. So what's happened is that I think, partly because the presidency has gotten so powerful, and there's an effort in Congress to rein it in. And partly because we have become so partisan on polarized as a country, impeachment has become not the rare process that the founders envisioned, but something that's used as a As a weapon by both parties really against the sitting president. So we've had three impeachments now since 1998. And that's a really a remarkable historical development that impeachment has become. More of a regular eyes thing in our country. And as I say, three of them since

New Law Mandates California To Study The Issue Of Reparations For Slaves' Descendants

"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly and I'm Elsa Chang in January. 18 65 As the Civil war staggered into its final months, the US made a promise. It would take for 100,000 acres of confiscated southern lands stretching from South Carolina to Florida and redistribute it to formerly enslaved black people in 40 acre parcels. Well, that order did not last long. Within the year, Lincoln's replacement president, Andrew Johnson, broke that promise and handed the land back to plantation owners. That was the nation's first systematic attempt to provide reparations for slavery. More recently, the late Michigan congressman John Conyers, tried and failed for nearly three decades. Yet Congress to consider the same issue. Now California has taken Conyers bill and used it as an inspiration for a new bill signed into law last week. It is the first state law of its kind. California Assemblywoman Shirley Weber is the author of that Bill, and she joins us Now. Welcome. Thank you. It's good to be here. Good to have you So what this new law does is basically set up a task force to study the issue of reparations for the descendants of enslaved people and To make further recommendations from there. Tell me what are you hoping to see? Come out of this task force. Well, I think they're a couple of things we hope will happen. Obviously, we hope there will be a number of recommendations on what the state needs to do in order to repair the damage that's been done. But hopefully in addition to that, we will have robust conversations about the really deep and long and pervasive impact of slavery and racism in California and across the nation. I talked to too many people who tell me I'm not a slave holder. I didn't I didn't own any slaves. What does that mean to me? Well, you may not have owned them, but the impact of your forefathers owning them. As what is the impact of the various laws and limitations placed upon African Americans That made it difficult, if not impossible, for them to compete educationally and economically and socially still has its lingering impact, and we see that in the streets today, we'll give us some concrete examples of what form Might these reparations take Well, you know, it could be like it is a Georgetown where those folks who was slaves that landed Georgetown, every descendant of those individuals now could have access and free education of Georgetown. We could look at the issue of loans and grants for people starting businesses, and we have businesses that are suffering and sometimes failing in this pandemic. Because of our let the lack of support and financing that made it almost difficult, if not impossible, for them to own land and only businesses. We need to look at housing patterns. California had some very, very racist housing patterns that existed. But they're they're number of things that need to exist and to indicate that is tremendous amount of damage was done and puts California on the hook as well, because he basically California was a free state, right. A lot of people don't think of California as a slave state, but exactly what role California did play when it came to slavery. Well, we had one of most racist governors who talked about removing all black people from state of California free or slaves. We created laws that prevented them from being able to testify in court against white person. We had lots of things embedded in our land ownership that prevents folks from buying or selling homes to African Americans. All of those things are important, as they began to say, is this wide African Americans continue to struggle have the least amount of wealth amassed have low homeownership, all those kinds of things that even after generations and generations of struggle. We still find that these things prevail. And even though a few sneak through the vast majority do not Now let me ask you dealing with the legacy of slavery is an issue that this entire country needs to reckon with. So there are a lot of people say, Let's look to a federal solution. How would you respond to that? Well, we have We lived for federal solution for 30 to 40 years. At this point, it's just not happening at the federal level. And so after waiting, we said, You know what California could do this? And I've governor said, You know what we can lead the way and that we think will motivate others to do. Likewise, California state Assemblywoman Shirley Weber was the author of a new state law to study reparations for slavery. Thank you very much, thank you for the opportunity.

"The civil rights of black Americans. Andy Vetoes, both bills. Moderate. Republicans are stunned. If nothing else the Freedman's bureau bill was rather mild yet. Andy seems incapable of compromise. We could call him stubborn. He calls himself principled. Either way his vetoes fail and he curses Republican leaders and calls them traitors as they harness the power of a two-thirds majority to overpower him. Still legislators and engaged Americans remain hopeful at this point if you can have a dialogue with Andy, but he can come to at least some sort of middle ground. This includes our old friend Frederick Douglass, takes on the task. Now, his one interaction with Andy Today was a year ago at Lincoln's second inauguration. Happy to see Frederick the Illinois Rail Splitter Got Andy's attention and pointed out his abolitionist friend in the crowd. And appeared scowl. Nonetheless. Frederick is prepared to meet and talk with Tennessee Taylor. He leads a delegation of thirteen men twelve black one white. On February seventh. The delegation arrives at the White House. New Englander George T downing who serves as the manager of the House of Representatives dining room opens with a warm confident, yet friendly town. We cherish the hope that we may be fully enfranchised throughout the land. He tells the president. Well so far so good. And he likes Georgia's kindness. Now Frederick Chimes in. In the order of Divine Providence, you're placed in a position where you have the power to save or destroy us to bless or blast us I mean our whole race, your noble inhumane predecessor placed in our hands the sword to assist in saving the nation, and we do hope that you his able successor will favourably regard the place in in our hands, the ballot with which to save ourselves. Oh dear. Frederic has eloquent has ever, but he's unknowingly hit a nerve see andy is a bit insecure being Lincoln shoes in that reference to the greatness of his predecessor isn't going over well. Andy leads loose with quite the rand. Heads of this is awkward like Michael Scott on the TV show the office awkward. Here's a little sample. He begins professing his love of black people saying that he served his own former slaves more than they did him. If, I, know myself and the feelings of my own heart they have been for the colored man I have own slaves bought slaves, but I never sold one. Might say however that practically so far is my connection with slaves has gone. I have been there slave instead of there being mine. He goes on for what could be the rest of the episode but let me try to sum this up. Andy offers himself as a biblical Moses figure to Black-americans. He's just a poor whites have had it worse than enslaved blacks. And at one point he asks Frederick, have you ever lived upon a plantation kind of an awkward thing to ask famous formerly enslaved American with two published autobiographies that details life on a plantation. I Have Your Excellency Frederick Calmly Answers. Offering. A defensive calling black suffrage estate issue Andy makes an argument for Democracy that you and I might consider the tyranny of the majority. I might go down to the ballot box tomorrow and vote directly for universal suffrage. But if a great majority of the people said, no, I should consider it would be tyrannical in me to attempt force such a pond them without their will. Is there anything wrong or unfair in that? Frederick. Disagrees kindly but firmly a great deal wrong Mr President. With. All respect. As a conversation or rather politely worded argument continues it becomes clear that Andy, poor whites is oppressed by the aristocracy but can't or won't grasp. Fredericks view that enfranchised blacks and for whites could help each other. I can see that it's hopeless to try to move Andy on the issue. The president sends us to the people and we will have to go and get the people right. He remarks to another delicate as they leave. In your here's them. He's pissed. Once, Frederick and his delegation are gone he turns to secretary convinces full frustration. Those damn sons of bitches thought they had me in a trap. I know that Damn Douglas he's just like any. And he was sooner cut a white man's throat in Phnom. To close let me quote Frederick Douglass biographer. David Blight on this exchange. Quote Johnson's rambling replies stands perhaps the worst exchange in American President ever.

"Moderate and radical Republicans have reason to be hopeful. As Andrew Johnson inherits the executive branch in April eighteen, sixty five. Foreign in poverty and poorly educated. Andy's a working man whose clawed his way up in the world through the tailoring business. Then became a successful democratic politician in Tennessee. In other words, he's just what we would expect from the soul southern senator to stay in US Congress despite his states seceding. Andy's a southerner who has no love for the southern aristocracy that led the confederacy. His early actions president confirmed this two. Out of consideration for the suddenly widowed First Lady Mary Todd. Lincoln he defers on moving into the White House. Meanwhile he asks Lincoln's whole cabinet. Stay on. And he also doesn't mince words on how he feels about those who turned from the Stars and Stripes for the stars and bars. Traders must be impoverished. The must not only be punished, but their social power must be destroyed Andy. Proclaims. He puts a one hundred, thousand dollar bounty out for the capture Jefferson Davis. Dam had to that. He proves himself something of a diplomat as he handles a SPAT BETWEEN WAR Secretary Edwin Stanton and General William tecumseh Sherman? Okay. Andy's really taken the ball and running with it. Even radical Senator Charles Summers feeling good about the new president. His feelings won't last long though. A May twenty ninth Andy Issues too important proclamations. I, we have the amnesty proclamation. In it the Tennessee. Taylor gives blanket amnesty. That is a restoration of civil political voting rights to nearly all ex confederates that take a loyalty oath. Their fourteen exclusions to this these include confederates who quit Congress to join the rebellion hold degrees from elite military schools held high ranks in the army or navy or have slash had a network of Twenty K. or more. Even then they could still get a pardon if they'll petition andy personally. And they do. Among the I bag Andy's forgiveness is none other than George E Pickett of the battle of Gettysburg, Gettysburg's Pickett's charge fame. Within the next eighteen months and he will pardon restore voting rights to some fifteen thousand former rebels who followed in his fourteen exceptions. Meanwhile Andy Second. Proclamation also has far reaching implications for reconstruction. Citing the US Constitution Article Four section for guarantee that every state in this union shall have quote a Republican form of government close quote. The president establishes a Provisional Governor for Carolina and requires him to convene delegates to prepare a state constitution. Only those who took the loyalty oath and were previously eligible to vote will elect delegates. In other words, blackmail southerners will not get to vote for delegates. And he quickly issues similar proclamations regarding the other seceded states. Guess what? None of these state conventions franchise black men. and. When we combine this factor with the first proclamation, well, you can see how these rapidly forming state governments are filling seats with ex-rebels. Again, just think of this episode's opening scene in New Orleans. Okay that leaves a bit to unpack. I. What happened? He's hardball. Talk about punishing. Rebels. Andy does hate the aristocracy who led the rebellion but not the poor common man. So Sure Arrest Jeff Davis But the average confederate soldier. Not so much. His heart is with his place of origin. Poor White Southerners. Second don't confuse Andy's loyalty to the US with a belief that all people should have civil rights regardless of color. Nor should we forget that being free and having full legal rights aren't the same thing? So even though the president's one big requirement for former confederate states, regarding their standing in the Union is to ratify the thirteenth amendment. Okay. That may be repudiated war debts. He also sees no problem leaving black men without the vote. White men alone must govern the south. and. He tells one. Democratic senator. Furthermore. While Andy's racism exceeds that of many of his contemporaries, he isn't as out of step with the Times as we might wish. Let's not make the mistake of thinking most black men in the north enjoy the vote. Is Eighteen sixty five years on andy takes further steps to ensure his presidential reconstruction prevents any revolutionary changes. That summer Andy Councils out generals, Oliver Howard, and William. T. Sherman's redistribution of confederate farmland former slaves. Forty acres and a mule was the promise made to these black farmers Instead, the president restores these lands to its ex-rebel owners. and has the new southern state governments filled with former confederates. Their legislatures begin producing laws that impose restrictions only on black residents. For instance, some states proceed to define unemployed black Americans as quote, unquote vagrants. These governments also gave themselves the right. Then auction off the Labor contract said unemployed black people to a planter. I trust. We can all see how this is pretty much slavery with a different name. Right. Around by the way, x ribs aren't just winning municipal and state offices. Thanks to the general amnesty and individual pardons behold over sixty seats in Congress. But it convenes in December eighteen, sixty, five, the thirty ninth US Congress contains former confederate congressman state officials, colonels, generals, members of Jefferson Davis's cabinet, and even former. Vice President Alexander H Stevens. I don't have a quote for you but I assume that few radical Republican senators maybe thaddeus Stevens or Charles Sumner got DC took a look around and said something like. I thought we won the war what the actual. Looks like Andy's plan isn't reconstructing. As historian and Net Gordon Regal later put it. This is restoring. So as we enter eighteen, sixty, six congress is really a bit miffed. Or the legislatures been in recess he's been stopping on congressional restriction plans and refusing to give them a say by calling a special session. Now. They come back to find some sixty odd new colleagues who were literally considered to be in a state of rebellion against the United, states as recently as earlier this same year. Congress. Flat Out Refuses these Southern Gentlemen there congressional seats. It sets up a joint committee on reconstruction to investigate and figure out what's going on in the south and whether or not these newly elected members of Congress should in fact be seated. Beyond the question of what is morally right many in Congress listen to this and believe they have a legal right to act. And there is succession put the states back at territory status in the US under the purview of Congress. Andy however refutes this. He believes that secession is illegal and therefore the states cannot never did in fact, succeed hence the need to restore them rapidly and for reconstruction the fall under his executive authority. Meanwhile President Andrew Johnson's relationship with Congress continues to unravel as vetoes to of Senator Lyman troubles early eighteen sixty six bills. One will extend the life of the soon to expire Friedman's bureau and expand its ability, to protect black Americans. The other is the civil rights bill. With the noted exception of indigenous peoples a story for another day I promise it pushes back against the black codes to expand the definition of national citizens to include all of any race born in the United States. In doing so it gives federal courts the ability to enforce.

Within months African Americans would be betrayed by a harsh reality. You probably heard the phrase forty acres and a mule. Here's what happened. In January eighteen, sixty, five, a meeting in Savannah Georgia. Between Union, Military Leader General William to come Sherman and a group of twenty black ministers resulted in a plan to redistribute confiscated and abandoned confederate land from south, Carolina to Florida. They. Call the Land Sherman's reserve. Newly freed slaves would be allocated forty acres of land along with a mule, the phrase which became well-known, even then spread quickly. The plan had the potential to revolutionize race relations in the south and the economic future of the African American community. The significance about formerly enslaved being given the land that they had actually worked was that they would be able to generate wealth as well as create wealth generation. But the summer of eighteen sixty five thousands of black families had settled on portions of the Sherman Reserve and were excited to plot their futures. But later that year, as part of his reconstruction plan, actually intended to appease the former confederacy President Andrew. Johnson abruptly cancelled the order giving the land back to its previous owner's. The United States had the opportunity to make it possible for the formerly enslaved people to be. Independent and the country failed to do it. That initial meeting more than one hundred years ago between General Sherman and Savannahs, leading black ministers was historic at least for a brief moment in history, the opinion of black leaders had led directly to a radical public policy initiative remarkably over a century and a half later on June nineteen, two, thousand nineteen, the House of Representatives held a hearing on H R forty, a bill named in honor of the famous phrase, forty acres and a mule. The bill would establish a commission to study the concept of reparations for slavery and Jim Crow Segregation, including the merits of a formal apology by the United States government.

It made his name as we'll come onto the full force of those accusations was it really made at that stage where you would afford it might of been a bit more. Perspective is definitely do. But it didn't affect him then. I think it's fair to say though from a momentum coin to standpoint for pilot Andy Johnson who we know has injury problems and they do get slightly worse later on the penalty represents a very good easy chance to get back into the wrong form or at least the flow of the might even the feeling of. Doing something for which not just under Johnson I think forwards have that sort of like it's an easy way to get back into it. When you've come from injury Johnson, it's not just the Donovan accusations lack of penalties then draw up. The injuries don't so that when he comes back into, he needs the more and can't get them even more. Yeah. I, mean I think it ended up boy said package like to the headed refs signed. He's been absolutely stitched into positions. If only they are who've been around at times, you would have been the perfect scenario everybody lives. If, wrong. About Valentine's Day perfect couples, they are oh. Yes. Much to have a perfect bedfellows before we get to the main reason why Andre Johnson such big hit. So early on in his primarily career and the all the goals in all the glory that came with a there is one thing to mention here, which is the he leaves Everton to go to Fulham because of an incident. Starts around his England career and we talked about so many strikers and Sony players in and around the Mid-2000s to the early twentieth and level suite which they need to hit, which is funny. Given the Father Inland wide exactly lot picking up trophies left right and center we won. But up until kind of funny enough to payroll whereby Johnson makes wannabes only competitive stars we had a decent decency. Yeah. It went very downhill very quick. Competition for places, shelter, Book Johnson comes into England team during his big season in two thousand and three, thousand and four, and a catapulted by two factors. One I had no idea of the other one is quite simply the fact that he was scoring goals in the premier league. That's all Mike. At this point, two goals in the Premier League you get lot five England caps just for for a cereal nice and everybody loves gifts coming out and wounded. HOW GHETTO BANISH? So annoyed of the, they don't do that anymore but the other factors involved in this is the. End completely comes from sometimes Fox just hit you on the face and this is definitely one of them. The idea the Andrew Johnson could apply for Poland and he said as much in an interview and then basically cost. Bendigo Bank. That is a great kind of intrigue in terms of what was going on at the time because a strikers of Maurice vintage of Troy Detrick and it hasn't worked. Of actually. Comply for Australia.

"Johnson. Comes in star this season on hits the ground in a wide it's like Oh my God. I can't believe what's happening in six goals in his first seven games. They don't lose any of them and fundamentally I was hoping to they this life was hoping this is a three victory over Liverpool in there and it was under Rapid Benitez for David Moyes disowned the last times I remember being. To Disney and I go. Fucking mad at Dr Intrical I'd also I'm pretty sure if you don't remember these Games, Dora Dvd's that much I do know it's still there itself sex in terms of best evidence. Just can't reprinting it. Basically, you know you've got some classic books been imprinted light four, hundred, hundred years this DVD. Just keeps second round. But I can laugh at it now because of what's happened since but everyone had gone through as I mentioned ups and downs, and this was a list start to the season was more of a case of Ikea we're back. We're GONNA do this again unfortunately for David Moyes evison end somewhere in the middle it's up to Johnson he comes in record son. Point six, million house. This great star he's. Gathering tide is turning and. Big Dogs anymore. Okay. They would've good as eyebrows arrays. Okay. We'll see what's going on here referred at one point of course about season. As, interesting, interesting to allergens actually. So if you're listening, this is when the diving accusation start coming in Allardyce carnivals ago few of mine is ever going in terms of how you know you just looking for the contacts and his four goes off a cliff. Yeah and if you really look at, it sounds of his career nowhere near of the same player again in terms of the numbers to an interesting one because account remember that many English plies you've had this accusation level we see on a weekend we kept vices with implies we've run five routes with all picked our own guys that we go. Yeah, he. Doesn't matter what they do Dover, but generally speaking I, don't tend to being these plies Jenny speaking even when they are it spun in a completely different way. It's always clever destroys. He corrected the contact don't seem to recall off the top of my head an English apply that was vilified in a why the he was also. Same. Can you remember a number example of a Playa vilified for Donovan who just start scoring pretty much the result because I can think of a few players who had a reputation for diving but I still carried out scoring goals. I mean you kind of non example you know Renaldo, this periods at united us known as a diver English players Ashley Young knows dive even in a little nibbles in terms of innovation but deliver that was one that was spun a different way.

"Do what was required really I suppose in terms of they had two Europa League campaigns where was full of the first one, twenty, nine, two, thousand, ten under Roy Hodgson where to get to the final was kind of the big one. Of from history but in terms of his contribution, he plays four games in company schools, free goals, but the free goals he scores are in the qualification rounds. Yes. So when they're in the group stage proper all those results, all great results, he's not even saying no and I think just as a whole season is a massive or foreign because e manages in the League ninety minutes. Images and if I cook eighty-three minutes, he plays in the premier league just shy of six hundred minutes. That's a folksy season. It's not just one injury got three separate injuries listed for him, the season and all coined of in different areas. So if you've got a dodgy name or you keep ripping the same muscle over and over again, maybe you're not looking after it particularly well in. Manages point too much stress on you as the comeback but the course of this season he fractured his collarbone is a groin strain and he has knee problems. Yeah. There's a lot going on in terms of they get final obviously lot decent results good teams in the League. Would you like to hazard a guess of how Games they would await always hard show you'd looking a. Won't they win one game away again? That's not particular Johnson's fall unless you're GONNA blame them for being injured. But is the juxtaposition of what was going on in era for Fulham knowledge and also Johnson's contribution or blackall because of his injury situation enough then if you go about two. Nine Johnson somehow manages to start the season with an injury, but the terms of his Fulham career actually manages to play a big part in it and it's thirty one games. Seven goals four assists at the very least even though on paper it's not like the world breaking records. It's still fundamentally just get him on the pitch first of all. Season for the they have a very season grand things of seventh. I'll just launch points out during the entirety of Andrew Johnson Fulham whether he's playing with he's not in the to crews they finish fifty by this has got it a peak of contribution, but also the peak in terms of the season obviously we all remember Roy Hodgson winning the Barclay Spirit Award. season.

This must have been an absolutely dreadful from start to finish. No hope everyone crying every week but there was a point during the course of this season up until caught in the middle of March they were four points off safety and now planets seventeen and it's got nothing to do about Johnson.

So it was involved it was involved supposed to go. Could he made a difference keeping them off but then you can fifteen voices a lot. It's my but I suppose you might have been slightly forever above water to begin with if he'd been involved, you know scoring goals and all that ever GonNa, keep your down to be fair but I think he was symbolic of how disastrously wrong that keep your seats and when it comes in injured almost immediately.

What Happens When A President Is Impeached?

But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

What Happens When A President Is Impeached?

"My name is evey. Im seven years. Old I live in Downers Grove Illinois. I my question is what happens when presidents get impeached. Have you been hearing about impeachment. It's been in the news because the US President Donald Trump trump has been impeached. And there's been a lot of news and conversation about whether he did something so bad that he should no longer be the US president as we're putting this this podcast episode out the trial to decide that is still going on. We thought you might appreciate having a little bit. More of an understanding of what impeachment actually is is how it works and when it has happened before in. US history so we called up. Jessica Levinson to help us with this. She's a professor or a teacher. Sure of law at Loyola Law School in California so she teaches people how to become lawyers. She also focuses on politics and government in her work so she looks at the rules around elections and she looks at government ethics. How people should behave in government so she really knows what's going on when it comes to impeachment? Here's Eve these question again. What happens when presidents get impeached? So impeachment is basically a way of removing one of our leaders in government. We have a couple of ways to remove people from their jobs so they don't get to keep doing what they already do and one of them is through elections and we can choose to vote somebody out of their current position. We can choose to say you. Don't get to keep your job. Somebody else's going to do your job now and we could also also decide to use a process called impeachment which means that people will basically decide. You did something. That is really bad in really problematic attic and that it's so bad that we might have to remove you from your job Before the next vote before the next election and so so. That's that's basically. What impeachment is a way so that people don't get to keep doing their job because they did something pretty? Bad impeachment is a process that was written into into our Constitution. The constitution is the document that was created to lay out the fundamental rules of what the United States was going to be. Here's our other guests to help explain lane the history. I am candidacy Davis. The author of don't know much about history. Impeachment is simply a term that was adopted by the men who drafted and wrote the United States constitution in seventeen eighty seven and the word comes from an old English term for how to remove an official if he somehow did something that was wrong. Corrupt criminal unethical ethical or some other form of needing to be removed. And so this was an idea that was important to the founders of with the country because they were getting a great deal of power to one man in particular the president does they finally decided on it as well as other federal officials and is important to remember. That impeachment isn't only for president. It's also for other high-ranking federal officials officials who might have to be removed from office including federal judges because our presidential elections only happen every four years the men who wrote the US Constitution thought there needed to be away to remove the president in between elections. If he had done something so wrong that he shouldn't be president anymore even before for an election happened. And I'm saying he here instead of he and she or her because back in the seventeen hundreds the founders couldn't imagine that a president or a judge judge or a person in that kind of power would be a woman one of the most important things about a democracy where the people choose their leaders is just that that the people choose so it needs to be a really big deal for a president to be removed from office by other elected officials instead of by the voters in an the election so the writers of the Constitution created rules around win and how a president can be impeached. The House of Representatives can bring bring charges against the president when they think he has done something wrong if a majority more than half of the members of the house votes to bring those charges to trial then a president has been impeached. That has happened three times so far in. US history and that's what happened to the current president. Donald Trump Andrew through Johnson in eighteen sixty eight was the first president to be impeached. The second one was Bill Clinton in nineteen ninety eight so it was more than a hundred thirty years between the first two impeachments Bill Clinton Andrew. Johnson were not removed from office now. There was one other career impeachment in that time. Richard M Nixon who was the president elected in nineteen sixty eight resigned from the office in Nineteen eighteen seventy four because he was going to be impeached and it was quite certain that he was going to be removed from office because of what he had done. In what we now know as Watergate so impeachment is pretty rare but it also might be a little confusing because being impeached. Doesn't doesn't mean that you're no longer. The president. Being impeached is kind of like being accused of doing something wrong. Here's how Jessica Levinson describes it just because because that first group of people the House of Representatives decides to impeach you nothing actually happens to president it might be that it's really embarrassing Maybe the people who don't like what happened. Use this against you. Think about something that happens at school where somebody does something. Like take a marker that wasn't theirs if the teacher tells the whole class look at this person they took the marker that's really bad that's kind of like impeachment if nothing thing happens other than the teacher just saying that's really bad but it's really what happens next which is called a trial in the Senate where you might be able to lose your job. The trial in the Senate is kind of like if the teacher says. That's so bad that you don't get to use markers for the rest of the day and so there's this consequences to that so it's up to the Senate to hold a trial and if enough of them. Two thirds agree that the president should be removed only then then what a president have to step down and that has so far never happened in. US history

"That the trial would occur without a vote from the Senate to give authority today making I don't think so it doesn't make sense that's not the way the constitution as signs that authority and it's the same in the house here there was no vote to authorize the committee to exercise power impeachment and this law has been boiled down by the DC circuit in Exxon corporate is F. T. C. to explain it this way to issue a valid subpoena a committee or subcommittee must conform strictly to the resolution establishing its investigatory powers there must be a resolution voted on by the parent body to give the committee that power and the problem here is there is no standing rule there was no standing authority giving manager shifts committee the authority to use the power of impeachment issue compulsory process row ten of the house discuss his legislative authority doesn't mention of impeachment and that is why in every presidential impeachment in history the house has initiated the inquiry by voting to give the committee the authority to pursue that inquiry so contrary to what manager Jeffries suggested there is always been in every presidential impeachment inquiry a vote from the full house to authorize the committee and that is the only way the inquiry begins there were three different votes for the impeachment of president Andrew Johnson in January eighteen.

Trump impeachment: What you need to know about the Senate trial

"Today. The big news coming out of Washington should have been the presentation of the articles of impeachment. Went to the Senate. The swearing in the chief justice to preside over the trial and of senators to serve impartial. Justice list was eclipsed however by new revelations revelations about trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine policy. Well we've Geoffrey Howard professor of political science at UC L. to come in and bring us up to date with the fast moving eating events have US domestic politics. Thanks so much for joining us. Jeffrey set who is left Pon us and what does he said. So let's partners is an associate of Rudolph Giuliani. Most people remember. Rudy Giuliani as the mayor of New York City. During nine eleven many thought he would go down in American history as one of its most storied figures. Someone who inspired brought the city together but this is a very different Rudolph. Giuliani we see before us in twenty twenty. He is the personal lawyer to the president of the United United States and by all accounts spent the last couple of years going around the world doing the president's bidding doing the president's alleged dirty work and life partners ukrainian-american American is one of his associates. One of his henchmen some have put it Who It seems has been spending quite a bit of time in Ukraine meeting with Ukrainian officials playing playing a key role in trying to pressure The Ukrainian government to fabricator find dirt on Joe Biden which the president could then use to smear near him with if Joe Biden turns out to be his opponent in the upcoming general election? And he's given this this huge interview where he absolutely says that trump knew exactly what it was going on. How credible is he? Well I think he certainly deserves a good amount of skepticism. He is himself under indictment partly for participation in he's very allegedly nefarious activities But what he's saying is corroborated by everything else. We've learned over the past few months. So this trove of voicemail as mail messages and texts in calendar entries demonstrates that there has been a concerted effort by trump's associates by Rudolph Giuliani and and his men To try to pressure the Ukrainian government to cook up this investigation Into into the former vice president Joe Biden That the president has known about it all along that the Attorney General Bill Bar has known about it all along the so many people have suggested that well maybe rudy. Giuliani has been up to no good but maybe the top people in the White House weren't totally sure that he was doing all this. He was just doing it on his own initiative well of left parties right The president has known about this all along then absolutely vital and orchestrating it and some of the elements of this evidence are really striking. Some of them are are handwritten notes scrawled on sheets of paper from the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Vienna And they demonstrate that there was a wide range of tactics that were deployed by eh trump's or rudy Giuliani's men including left in Ukraine. It looks like there may have been in operation to Sir Vail then American ambassador acid to the Ukraine by Rudy Giuliani's own men. So I mean this really is the stuff of a of a movie plot. You really couldn't make it up and inevitably they will be a movie about about the We also heard yesterday that an independent nonpartisan office that works for Congress says the trump administration broke the law when it withheld held military assistance to Ukraine. So what has the Government Accountability Office said. Why does it matter so will it matter that is the question for the US Senate as we approached this This trial So the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. It's a it's a national watchdog organization and it did indeed find that the decision to withhold military aid for Ukraine dangling over the government in exchange for a promise to look into a Abidin was indeed a violation of the law. Now as we know the president cannot be prosecuted as part of a traditional Legal investigation it. There is a special process. The founding fathers of the United States for better or worse put into place with respect to holding the president legally accountable and that is the the impeachment process. Which of course begins with the House of Representatives? The Lower Chamber of the Congress deciding whether to charge the president with a particular offense Which has done that is why he's been impeached? And then it goes to the Senate to decide Whether to convict him the offense and if they do convict him of the events he will be the I president. US history removed from office. And that is where we are now the opening formalities of the Senate trial of happened. We've had the swearing in of jurors as we know the Senate is controlled told by Donald Trump's party the Republicans will the jurors be impartial. Well that's the big question. We're learning to find out so A month ago Mitch. McConnell the the leader of the Republicans in the Senate said that he didn't intend to be an impartial juror and he emphasized that this is a political process And of course there's a sense of what she's he's right that it is a political process. This isn't a standard ordinary legal process. It is a a decision that the senators get to make for themselves. They get to ask themselves. Do we think that this conduct that the president has engaged in amounts to what the constitution refers to as high crimes in misdemeanors has the president by allegedly abusing. His power demonstrated that he is fundamentally unfit for office such that he ought to be removed. That is not a matter of showing that the president violated highlighted some particular law on the books. It's it is a political judgement but that doesn't mean it has to be a a a narrow minded self interested partisan judgment political judgments can still be moral judgments and so when the chief justice of the United States who very intriguingly to preside over. This whole process swore the senators in in yesterday He got them to swear that they would do impartial. Justice in this context with that means I would argue is that they need to Genuinely we look at the evidence. Look at the facts And that really goes to the question of whether this will be a fair trial because we do not know for sure yet whether there will actually be witnesses called or or whether it will be a very quick process where they have opening statements And then basically closing statements and then it ends because trump had originally said he wanted witnesses. Nice Nice seems to be tons of them. Well it's it's not exactly clear what the president wants here One thing we know for sure is that if the president if we do have witnesses in this process For example the former national security adviser of the United States John Bolton long celebrated and regarded as a very important vigour by Republicans but who is said to have referred to Rudy Giuliani's little inquiry in Ukraine as a as a drug deal that he didn't have anything apart a part of he has said that if he's subpoenaed he'll be willing to testify. No doubt if left parnassus subpoenas. He would testify Now it could be that some of the more. Moderate Republicans pins people like Susan Collins from Maine who are going to rely in their next reelection. On more moderate members of their state voting for them will want to be seen as not just in the tank for trump as somewhat more independently minded Someone like Mitt Romney. For example the senator from Utah also wants to be seen as an indeed is more independently hundley minded. They may well go with Democrats in supporting calling witnesses. You might even get more Republicans than that to support calling pulling witnesses. But then they'll perhaps want include witnesses. That don't seem to have much particularly to do with whether trump is guilty not such as Hunter Biden and so if we start seeing people like Hunter Biden called in this thing could degenerate into a circus quite quickly and I mean such a huge week ahead then for the US and not just for the Republicans for the Democrats. Not Because of course we have Iowa coming up on one of the unintended consequences of this. Trial is the fact that two senators who are also running for the Democratic nomination not table to get on that campaign trail so Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders both needing to be in Washington to actually be at this trial absolutely absolutely and so then. They're going to have to go so there. Of course the two most important ones given their rankings in the polls Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota also needs to participate cle Bennett a senator from Colorado running for president. I saw the other day. He's still running for Pres- wasn't aware that he was still in the race. He hasn't been in the limelight bat. Much of that's four senators that have to Interrupt their campaigns and go back and so might that given a slight edge to South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buddha judge and the former former vice president Joe Biden it probably will and just indulge me here in a in a best case justice doing its job no partisan interest Outcome where trump is simply judged on whether he broke the Laura or not and we know he did really How soon could he be gone? Well it could happen quite quickly. So the Clinton trial took just over a month. Um that was in nineteen ninety nine. The previous impeachment was the impeachment of Andrew Johnson in nineteen sixty eight and that took about two months So if you manage to get so there are fifty three Republicans in the Senate. They're forty five Democrats there to independence any two two thirds of the Senate to convict and remove the president from office. Which means you'd need to get the forty five Democrats which you'd get you get the to independence and then you need to get Twenty or so little more more than twenty Republicans To sign on as well and that seems extremely extremely unlikely Because you can get someone like Susan Collins who will be able to say. Well we broaden auden witnesses. We looked at all the evidence and we just decided he was bad with the president. Had but it didn't rise quite to the level of an offense such that we should remove him from office and that might be a way. She's able to save face but if for some reason the political winds change dramatically. Maybe John Bolton gives a dramatic testimony that shifts public opinion radically medically and you do get that twenty those twenty or so senators. Well then trump could be gone within a couple of months Jeffrey. I'm holding my breath. Thank you very much indeed. That's Jeffrey free. How it

"Conspiracy theory okay conspiracy theory Monday who before bombshell Tuesday yes before crime shelled died Tuesday all right which would make good be bomb shelters or no demand so much Nancy does right right yep so conspiracy theory Monday here we go the reason that Nancy set up the ladder that they're going to vote I'm the war powers resolution that the president after thirty days Hey even though that the war powers act said sixty she's saying thirty days that if Congress does not give the president the authority that he is to do nothing else the reason they're doing that is because the once the thirty days is up if trump does anything whether he goes after somebody else for bomb somebody they will use that if she still hasn't submitted the articles of impeachment and well she might do it either way even if they say even if the this the sudden decides to take it up and then dismissed said she will introduce it as a nother article of impeachment in that the president is not abiding by the war powers act in there will be another article of impeachment for that and they will use the impeachment of Andrew Johnson as their president okay you like that yeah in my gift yeah it makes sense please please make this happen please let's go through it all again please please let's let's let's go Nancy you haven't just when you think you couldn't watch it if any further make it happen and just so people believes so people understand the link in case you don't know Andrew Johnson was impeached because he wanted to fire his secretary of war right which she had the constitutional authority to do so sure Congress didn't want him so they passed a law saying the president couldn't fire room yeah well the president fired him anyway they impeached imports saying you broke our law right and so therefore it's a high crime now we didn't pass again it didn't go through this that didn't go to the Senate didn't go anywhere right because everybody knew what was going on this would be the same thing the war powers act by the way that was passed in nineteen seventy three and just so people know when it was passed Nixon vetoed it and they over rode his veto right because no administration has acknowledged that they have any legal obligation to follow congress' war power act because as we've said before Congress does not get to dictate presidential Congress could constitutional presidential authority in more time in they can cut off the funds but they can't dictate to him what the parameters are they can dictate the parameters to themselves what the present doesn't is within thirty days we withhold funding but I believe they will use that lawn say this about a laws but in fact for since nineteen seventy three and Andrew Johnson was impeached that's the president we're going to use it like my little linkage there on and this will be the third article of impeachment if nothing is done or it will set the standard for new hearings that they'll bring people in from the White House who will who will say well no the the administration does not believe that they have to abide by that law because no administration does and they'll say saying they want to violate the law we're going to impeach him for that yes knowing that the clue look if they attempted to get the president for obstruction of Congress yeah yeah that's a good which which is so bogus to begin with because he simply saying not bomb we're going to court which is every right to do by the way do knows from Biden said it he said he would go to the legal process remember he first said he would abide by a subpoena and then realized all I can say that because now I will abide by a legal subpoena notice he said legal which which which one he would wait to hear it would lead to the court ordered him for eggs exactly exactly what Bolton said yes and and so if there if they tried to pull that or the abuse of power even the beauty of the views powers is ridiculous the obstruction of Congress is insane yesterday Nancy laws yes so what do you try to tag under that what you hope to tag on what's could you really tag on that the president went to war and we can safely you we mean no it's bogus but will use the president and make our case looks stronger because it'll show that the president went to war even though he hasn't but he he committed date at act of war ended up by by the war powers act and you know that that Andrew Johnson got impeached for not following the law of Congress this is a law of Congress the president is and following it that's our president impeach I think that that may be something in the back of their mind because why would you do this boat which is going to work against you who was it I can to get the guy on a I can't think of any calls himself a Republican but and a concern but he's not David I can't think of it he was on his on PBS all the time is right to get all that is his name here but he was he was on stating that he thinks this will hurt the president in polling Mike I don't think so no no no no no I don't think so and now at this tell me who who it's going to hurt him with the the supporters of the president far with them wholeheartedly and again we talked about David Brooks David Brooks the the people on the left if he cured cancer is one caller put it you know or she would be demonized for increasing the world population an increasing the impact negative impact on the environment so the left is not going to going to support him on this I don't see where the polls in terms of his current supporter gonna change of all of it in fact I would say they they might actually even go up I think there's a case to be made where he gets greater support as a result of something like this I mean you look at the I'm well it's a different type of attack in a different target but eastern Afghanistan in twenty seventeen then the the you know a massive massive bomb checking out ISIS in that region I'm it is a show of strength it is well it's clear show of strength it's also stating it's also stating look we don't need to get into a war right right I need to get into on the ground war we could be affected with and very we were sites where we can be effective in take out all your leadership exact anybody else who takes over we take you out like we said this with Osama bin laden and I know that betrays said that nothing is some you know that this this was more consequential even taken out of some of bin laden because even though he might be involved in he was still the leader and he wasn't nearly as involved in solemn awe like soul Marnie was in in dictating over the last decade and continue to dictate as Reuters pointed out the future attacks in Iraq on on Americans even isn't the same without a doubt a wild rice is has a presence his power really peaks during the to the fall of muscle or the capturing of also by ISIS when he was when he led the charge but the the point of taking out of some of bin laden his son whoever they take out is it doesn't matter how long it takes the leaders will die right yes and and now trump is sent out that message like never before because not only did he go after Solomonic body when it when he he went through the the head of the the the team has will a group right and and also the others of the five others that apparently were hit on Friday so he is saying I'm gonna take out your leadership structure you want to fight a war with us fine it's not going to be on the ground it's going to be in the air and it's going to be targeted and it'll be your leaders that are gonna be dying that's an extremely strong message of the United States since Reagan shot the missiles that could office compound right yeah and he backed off after the disco bombing the Germany disco bombing we even see them there are this sense and by the way the left hated that too there of course but that's the message that he sent me now that you look I'm I'm not your I'm not your normal president you kill Americans you you you plan to kill you you kill Americans you plan to kill Americans will take out your leadership infrastructure will target you first and we have the ability and the technology to do it your next move yeah the general who's taking Solomon his place they the vowing revenge courses vowing that from a bunker Barbie far below ground I'm sure the fact of the matter is the message is clear not just just a rant no it's not though is we fight against any enemy on the planet who's going to behave that way but let's face it there are few look out I'll be the nicest guy Ali either at all I'll even at times go above and beyond complimenting you knowing that you're our enemy but you target and kill Americans and then it all ends you we come after you yeah and as I said everything that the president does previous to the two last Thursday nothing none of that matters anymore the new standard has been set at this point and that's all that matters the president has sent a clear message where that line is now yep I think so and I expect anyone in a ran from their leadership to be his mouth he is there going to be but who made the the comparison another meme over the weekend it's like a to wobble barking at a German shepherd go ahead but the moment you flinch the moment you decide that you're going to act in the moment we have Intel that you're going to come after you I think that's the message the president sent and that message had to be sent at that time you know the one thing you didn't cure the it was a celebrity left really if you think about it the activist media but for the most part there were many in the media over the weekend essentially agreeing that well I mean even Elizabeth Warren last week hours after it happened hours after it was announced while she said do you know what but there was a different she would have taken a different approach week we must do everything to prevent war yeah what was your approach done nothing nothing it would be easy it would have been the same as as the past but Allah so mommy is a killer and and a murderer so the left can do whatever they want they can kick cry scream defend a rand if you must but more and more you looking like fools eight six six ninety right I with.

"The land Joe packed dot com all the social media there plus the live video stream today it's the weekend with Joe pads and that really glad to have you here what it what a monumental week right monumental in in the failure I believe of the Democrat party in the left in this country you are all well how they fail the beach the guys what they wanted what will they fail because they the page the man on unimpeachable things well not only show I'm also gonna I'm gonna revisit my parity from last year Babe get your **** outside you know it's a based on baby baby it's cold outside last year around this time there was a huge controversy over how horrible and sexist in date rape be somebody she said date rape me the song was a song that's been around for like seventy years suddenly we that V. interplay between man and woman in attempting to spend time with each other was somehow date rape me yeah we found out last year that a man and a woman who like each other was for some time together at night what was about to leave the main trying to convince her to stay that's probably never happened in the history right that probably never really goes on it's not probably be the dance that we do as men and women and that we've done this men women for history where one of the other tries to convince the other to stay over and and hang out a little bit longer and maybe snuggle little bit films and so yeah we we had that so I had to do Babe good dress outside which is the modern day what you have to say instead of trying to let make the woman stayed you from your gonna believe we'll have that for you coming up of course John legend Kelly carton Clarkson did a new updated version where there is actually a line in baby it's cold outside where he says your body your choice yes that's so stupid as we go that's a line in the song so have the bags Verity baby dress outside at some point I probably played a few minutes but yeah yeah it's gonna be a lot of impeachment talk today and if you listen my program Monday through Friday the first hour my program to Joe pack show I generally don't talk about politics much at all I mean maybe political correctness maybe what's happening as societies and social stuff but I generally don't talk about politics the first hour because I can't do it three hours a day six days a week eighty hours a week can do it that would just blow it would just blow might might my mind I would have a hard time living with myself and that's all I talked about how to have fun where to play music we have to talk about farts you have to do all that stuff it takes me a lot about impeaching because for only the third time in American history a president well the houses voted to impeach president I'm not sure this guy's been impeached yet I'll explain that little while but many are saying this is the fourth time it's not Andrew Johnson was impeached he was found not guilty Bill Clinton was impeached found not guilty and the houses voted to impeach this president he of course will rapidly we found not guilty but has it really been P. chip many think Richard Nixon should be added to that list Richard Nixon was not impeached they did not get to impeachment with him he resigned he probably would have been impeached him probably would've been found guilty but he read he resigned Gerald Ford then came in and pardon him on all crimes he's done before we'll do can face just for the future for the for the better good of the country Gerald Ford decided to do that so what happened this week we know that since November two thousand sixteen the left in this country has been trying to impeach the man who won the delete prosecutor election in November two thousand sixteen in January of on the twentieth the day he was inaugurated it was an article in the time New York times of washing poster somebody making the case for impeachment of Donald Trump he just taking office ten hours earlier Jerry Nadler was overheard by a young lady we've had on I eighty and she heard about it on the train in on the train she hears him talking on the phone having a conversation about how it's time to impeach this guy seriously like saying it out in the open and we're wondering wow is he really vat confident that he can get it done this is is a couple years ago way before he called Ukraine way before you alleged quid pro quo which didn't happen Mollie Hemingway sitting on the train from the federalist and here's the conversation reports on it Nadler beg to be the Judiciary Committee chairman so he could be the person to impeach the president I don't know if he's read between Jerry now learn Donald Trump was not a good one yes same thing with like Robert deniro just the hate very has for Donald Trump there's something else there that we don't know about that happened way before politics we've been talking about stroking page they talked about how we have another plan will put a plan in place we now know the call me McCabe and all these idiots were surveilling crop in trump tower pretending that Carter page had to be surveilled the fake dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton all of this stuff as lead up to what happened this week

"Can you explain to me exactly what the crime is well Larry you don't have to commit a crime to be impeached that certainly is true but every president has been patient till just now did in fact commit a crime in the case of Andrew Johnson the first present to be impeached Congress passed a law after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln saying that you cannot fire any of the appointees of Lincoln without congressional approval talk about interference with separation of powers and so the president Johnson assume that the law was not constitutional I don't think it is either the fire to buy got a peach now I believe the impeachment largely was because he was not carrying out the reconstruction policies S. Lincoln wanted Andrew Johnson with a Democrat Lincoln was a Republican believe it or not in those days Democrat and Republican plan on the same ticket not uncommon that's primarily the reason I think it was wet lease there was a pretext that a law had been passed he clearly broke that law which makes Richard Nixon recorded himself ordering his aides to commit perjury recorded himself doing it Bill Clinton Bill Clinton perjured himself pled guilty to perjury perjured himself before a grand jury lost his law license to practice tell me the crime here remember during the hearings Republicans don't right now have you ever seen him do anything coming up abuse of power are you kidding me fast and furious this operation that was designed to in my opinion Jen up support for further gun control these weapons were allowed to go to Mexico the idea was that they would be traced back they lost a whole bunch of them a border patrol agent was killed with one of the fire what firearms others have been killed or wounded with them and when Congress try to get to the bottom of this independent all sorts of documents from the then Eiji Eric holder he refused to turn over invoking wait Ford executive privilege he was the first and I believe the only Eiji ever to be found in criminal contempt of Congress it was years before those documents were finally given to Congress and is still in my pin unclear whether all of them were given now was there a move to impeach isn't Brocco bomber because of the invocation of executive privilege for these documents Lois Lerner she's the one I would tell the nonprofits applications for nonprofit status concert act application for nonprofit status emails have been destroyed there were under subpoena.

"And then came the election but it's not as though he lost in a general election to Ulysses S. grant he never got to a general election now the Democrats felt that he was toxic they had had enough of Andrew Johnson look quite enough no his political career did not know he was not a broken man he was an angry man and in the eighteen seventies Andrew Johnson is sent back by the Tennessee legislature to the United States Senate and what does he do he stands up and goes on a rant against Ulysses S. grant during congressional recess inter Johnson goes home and passes away before he can do any more damage in the Senate throughout this conversation I've been pointing out parallels some of them actually quite eerie two hundred fifty years ago and today what lessons should we take from the Johnson impeachment having nine articles of impeachment focused on the violation of the law and only two on abuse of power and obstruction of justice means that people for god to the real issues at stake were not the question of this particular law maybe even this particular phone call if you want to make that kind of analogy but actually the direction that the country should and would go in today what's at stake choose the direction of the country that really what's behind the abuse of power is the destruction of the whole democratic structure in the independence of a sovereign country end the fact in both cases that no one not even the chief executive is above the law Brenda thank you very much.
