Of the subpoenaing the former president of the United States. And Jonathan Turley has this right? In the Hill newspaper says he quotes this Chairman Bennie Thompson from Mississippi, a Democrat. And he says, We have quite an exhaustive list of people. I won't tell you who they are with those words. Thompson confirmed that a subpoena storm was about to be unleashed in the investigation of the January six ride in Congress, he writes. The targets would include Republican members, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, representative Jim Jordan. We've already been told to preserve their phone records to be surrendered to the committee. The Democrats are reportedly trying to prove their prior claims that Republicans conspired or assisted insurrectionist quote unquote Even though the FBI reportedly found no evidence of a planned insurrection. But these are the dead enders. While all this is going on in the country, while all this is going on in Afghanistan, this is what the Democrats are doing because they're good at this. They're good at Stalinist old Soviet tactics. That's what they are. That's who they are.

"Aren't we're working through a very news heavy morning and a day or two ago is. I'm taking a look at various people. I'd love to have on the show Congressman jim banks is an easy call. And because it's been in the news a lot lately and obviously tons of congressional things are on the of the topical burner. But i don't know where congressman jim banks is better and greater effect either on this infernal january. Sixth committee where he would have served with distinction along with jim jordan who was also summarily dispatched by nancy pelosi. I somehow perceive. And maybe it's because i wanted republicans to boycott this pig. Poke i have a feeling that the interviews he's been able to do and the things we've been able to say since being bounced from the committee might have even been of more value. Let's ask him indiana congressman. Jim banks mark davis pleasure. To have you on the hugh hewitt show how you doing sir. Hey good morning mark. Thanks for having me. So what's your thought. I mean i know you wanted to. I mean you're you're having conversations with chairman bennie thompson about how to bring some even-handedness to this january. Sixth the dog and pony show. That would have been nice. But i think this committee is is is collapsing under its own partisan weight. And you've had some things to say about that in the intervening days that might even more value. I don't know what do you think it's a great way to put it marketing. It's obvious at this point. That pelosi isn't isn't interested. All in an investigation is only interested in building narrative which is a anti-trump anti republican anti Millions of americans who voted for donald trump. She wants to. She wants this all to be about that. She doesn't wanna talk at all about why. The capitol was vulnerable on january six. And what we could do to to fix fix the issues at the very systemic breakdown of leadership at the at the highest levels of the capitol police which is a bureaucratic issue. She's not interested that she's obviously interested in the american people. See it for for what it is. I mean in fact I don't know if you saw this a couple of days ago. Harvard of all places put out a whole showed that fifty eight percent of the american people. Think that this committee is biased. To begin with so to your point. I mean the. The committee process that the american people see. See for what it is. It's a political stunt. It isn't all about investigating. What happened on january six to to do everything that we can't make sure that never happens again.

The president said he would extend temporary protection to recipients of the deferred action for childhood arrivals program are DACA in exchange for the five point seven billion. He wants for his border wall. Democrats want the government reopened before any negotiations on border security issues. Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are trying to put some muscle behind the White House pitch they planned to add in billions for disaster aid and extend the violence against women at and they could try to put it to a vote as soon as this week congressman Bennie Thompson is a democrat from Mississippi. He's also chair of the house homeland security committee. He joins us on the line from outside. Jackson. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. So what would your response be to Dhaka recipients who heard this offer and might have had some hope? Well, I think it best that temporary proposal is just that it gives no pathway to citizenship. And again, it's just a a crime that president is dangling in front of the public with no permanence to it. So I would say to the DACA people don't be fooled. The president is just doing this in his pursuit of trying to get the money for the wall. It's not be a care in the process. The first thing we have to do is get. Federal employees back to work. Let me jump in here because majority leader Kevin McCarthy of tweeted Sunday that President Trump is go put forward a serious and reasonable offer. Now, Democrats say the president's proposal is a non-starter as you're saying is it fair for Republicans to say that you're not willing to negotiate. You know at this point. It's people tweeting back and forth. We're not sitting down like adults, negotiate. We get to a solution. When we meet face to face every time we've tried to meet with this administration. President throws a temper tantrum and basically walks out the room. That's not how you get a deal done. So Democrats are absolutely prepared to work with the president makes sure that we get government back open. And by all means we off a border security, we've always been for border security, but the wall is a non-starter does that mean that there's no wiggle room? Well, let me tell you for two years. He talked about Mexico to pay for it. Now, he wants to tax payers of America to pay for it. This is not a political stunt that Democrats will fall for we're willing to look at technology will look at brain more men and women to the border from a security standpoint. But on the no circumstances, we're going to do a wall. If Democrats are able say to make a deal do you want to the government for the rest of the year? Or are you looking for a short term extension something that would reopen the government and allow these negotiations to continue where we've tried short term just to get people to work. We have eight hundred thousand employees out here who absolutely on the brink of bankruptcy in some instances, Big Eye employees are not rich people. They go to work, but we should pay them. And now we've put them in an untenable position where they're having to stand in line for food. So you're not seeing a short term solution a short term extension short term extension. We've offered it. It leader McConnell wouldn't even bring it up on the Senate side, we will do that. If that brings people back to work, but we have to get out of this Trump shut now that's congressman Bennie Thompson democrat of Mississippi. Thank you for speaking with all.
