"Let's check back in Iowa where malfunctioning anew smartphone and apple thrown the Iowa caucuses into disarray. Most results will be out later at five eastern time but stay. Democratic officials are trying to reassure campaigns. That those results. It's were not compromised. Darab Raquin was a precinct captain in Marion Iowa. He's a supportive Joe Biden. He traveled from Connecticut to make sure other Biden. Supporters showed up and then gathered in Biden's corner of a room and Darryl. We know how much hard work this is for volunteers like you. How are you feeling today? Yeah actually I'm feeling I'm great. Energize kind of losing my voice. It was very active in a lot of fun. Wait wait are you feeling great. There's no catapult. There's no momentum coming out of Iowa for for Joe Biden for anybody well. This is the long term plan that Joe Biden has been selling out for months at this point. This is just the beginning. It's not the end. Daryl I'm sorry most of the countries in meltdown because the Iowa caucus didn't work. I mean it's not just walking into a booth and voting. It's very interactive interactive thing. It's been under attack because people feel. The Iowa caucuses are too time. Consuming people with children can't go or not a swath of diverse America so they've already been under attack and now this aren't there are people there who are disheartened by this. Of course the local islands absolutely disheartening. Look the Democratic Party. They have a lot to explain. But on the ground being here on the ground having organized it was a great participation we actually ended up community better community. There is that but your candidate. Joe Biden did not Rally people US Ninety. Didn't have a good night. P Buddha judge edge sanders did Buddha jesuits claiming a huge victory based on the captain. Count do you think your candidate is not doing enough to claim victory out of Iowa. Well we can't claim victory without actually having the results and we're waiting on the Democratic Party to give that official results. Okay well how do you feel. Will you candidate did from what you the corner you looked in right. You know which was a very small corner you know We organize a it was about one hundred and sixteen caucus-goers eyesight particular only three delegates at stake and essentially those three delegates were split between Biden Sanders in Warren. So so you're saying that the price at the end of the night was three delegates. Those were the campaigns that split those three delegates how many people showed for Biden. There were thirty seven thirty seven out of one hundred in something. That's not bad. What was the top number in the room? Elizabeth one was twenty one and Bernie Sanders. took the cake leave around fifty sixty or so much true boy. Is that Unsettling to you well we knew it was going to be competitive From the beginning as you can see the polls even indicated that but it's just very consistent go with what we already know Darryl. Is You know President trump is pointed this as The failure of the Democratic Party to run anything as we said people are pointing to this as the reason that the Iowa caucus have to go away. You're somebody who worked so hard on this. You say what well I come from a primary state In New Haven Connecticut. So I'm absolutely used to the primary process this caucus process. You know it's over fifty years old. We are entering the twenty first century. I know the the party did its best to update the process. But I don't know that this is probably the best way for a personal line Darrelle Brechin volunteer precinct. Captain last night at the Iowa caucuses as he said. He came from Connecticut to support. Joe Biden. Daryl thank you absolutely. Thank you. President trump we'll deliver his third state of the Union address tonight in which he's expected to tout his achievements and this speech comes on the eve of the final vote of the Senate impeachment trial which will determine if trump will be removed from office for more on tonight's state of the Union address. Let's bring in. NPR White House correspondent Franco or Donas and Franko. What achievements developments is the president likely to highlight in his address tonight? Well a senior administration official told us that the president's going to lay out a vision of quote relentless optimism the museum This team is the great American comeback And he's GonNa highlight the economy he's also going to invite you know Congress to join him on on issues like immigration And lowering drug prices. But as we know it's a tall order considering the deep divisions today. Yeah you know. I think everyone's wondering if he's expected back to mention impeachment and really use this opportunity to smear the Senate trial well. I can tell you that some Republican senators are are certainly hoping that he does not what but mark who's the chief of staff or the vice president said today that the president may highlight. You know how inside the Beltway. Everyone is so focused don impeachment while while other issues that Americans care about are not being discussed. Yeah you know. President trump isn't the first president to deliver a state of the Union Address S. Amid an impeachment trial. President Clinton did sell right in nineteen ninety nine. Yes he did he had that same. Similar cloud. it was during the Senate. Trial He did not Clinton did not mention impeachment once so there is some precedent for not mentioning impeachment. But I will say that. A White House official told me that trump's unlikely to hold back if he feels like he does need to take a shot at the Democrats tonight's address also comes of course one day after the Iowa caucuses where of course trump gained overwhelming republicans support and the Democratic caucuses. As we're learning was definitely a mess. Thanks to these issues issues around the use of this new APP. I mean trump has already mocked the Democrats about this on twitter. Do you think he'll throw more political jabs at them. Well I mean the the White House's this is arguing that this will be an optimistic speech But you know mark short again kind of talked a little bit about this. He wouldn't say whether trump would actually throw specific jobs at Democrats but he did say that the situation in Iowa you know kind of shows that the party is in chaos and it will give the president an opportunity to kind of tell more of his story You know in in president trump is also expected to draw a sharp contrast between himself and some some of the Democratic candidates on key issues particularly the healthcare plan democratic rebuttal Will be delivered by not one. But two women Michigan Governor Gretchen. WHITMER will speak in English and Texas Congresswoman Veronica Escobar in Spanish. Tell us a little bit more about who they are and what we're expected to hear from them. I'm so whitmer has been the governor for just over a year You know she's from Michigan. An important swing state you know. That trump won run by a tiny margin That but it was the first time that GOP candidate had won the state since nineteen ninety eight. You know not only does her pick represent how important Michigan will play in the key election in the presidential election but she is also an example for Democrats That a Democrat can win in the Midwest. She's likely to talk about some of the issues that she ran on you know infrastructure kitchen table issues roads infrastructure clean water and climate change change then Veronica. Escobar she's going to give the Spanish language rebuttal as you said you know. She is a vocal critic of the trump administration particularly on immigration issues. She's been calling for changes on immigration policies increased oversight on border enforcement agencies. You can expect that she'll highlight those issues. when a turn who are some of the other guests who will be attending tonight so the president is going to bring the deputy chief of the border patrol troll Raul Ortiz. He was recently promoted To the deputy chief position he also in the past served as an agent and the San and Yego and del Rio area Prior to that he was in the army President trump is also bringing a tony rankings. He is an army the veteran who suffered from PTSD and drug addiction. He's also struggled with homelessness and now lives and one of the opportunity zones That at the administration has been working on in Cincinnati Ohio. There's going to be other gas. You know members obviously will have their guesses. Well some of those include Courtney wild who testified testified In the Jeff Jeffrey Epstein Case She said that Jeffrey Epstein sexually abused her she'll be guest of democratic congresswoman. Jackie Jackie Speier of California And also there's going to be the fiance of Jamal Kashogi She part of me is going to be the guest of Democratic Congressman. One Jerry Connolly of Virginia Kashogi as we know was the Saudi dissident writer who wrote columns for the Washington Post and was killed in the Saudi consulate. We'll definitely be watching. Thank you so much that's NPR's White House correspondent Franko. Yes thank you for joining us. Thank you well as as the Senate prepares to vote on the two articles of impeachment tomorrow. Many people around the country including voters in south central Pennsylvania have been keeping tabs on the hearings. The region is largely moderate and swing state that will be closely watched. This election season is w I T S Katie Meier reports many of those in in Pennsylvania from both sides of the aisle see throughout the impeachment process.

"And i think all of that's gonna take enough time as it is any does have political cover with these narrow margins a narrow margin in the house that you talked about earlier and Either you know fifty fifty in the senate org just a couple seats down. He's not going to be able to do what some progressives want Which as you said could lead to civil war but it's also gives him cover to pursue you described as more of a moderate Yes to both do what you just said Well but also i think also begin to show at least a way forward for the country for centuries a kid just it's very tricky task has very narrow majorities in both the house and maybe not less at it with parts of his own party touch. Republicans in this highly partisan the climate so tough governing challenge restoring normalcy on the one hand. Getting things just going again to the economy in regular governance on speak and also beginning to chart a path forward. Want just i mean. He's smart with his slogan. Where's the building back better. It has to can't just be back till bomb or acting clinton or something so just the world doesn't permit that so he has a tricky tricky and complicated challenge.

"From NPR and WB YOU are. I'm Tanya Moseley. I'm Robin Young. It's here now. The Iowa Democratic Party says it will release more than half of the results. A majority. From last night's presidential caucuses at five o'clock eastern time. Today officials are blaming. Last night's lock of results on a coding error in their new APP. They say that APP was collecting collecting results accurately but only partially reporting them. That still leaves a lot of questions about the APP and the Caucasus. Nevada Democrats have announced. They'll not use the APP for for their caucuses coming up and some were predicting. The death of the Iowa caucuses altogether or at least the accepted notion that Iowa voters have to go I a short time ago. We spoke with K Henderson News Director Radio Iowa. We've been speaking with her for years and asked her what else officials were talking about. Well the interesting development. This this morning is that I was top. Republicans the governor in two. US Senators have issued a statement in unison sort of supporting the Democratic Party. And taking a pause and and making sure that these results are accurate. Senator Chuck Grassley spoke by phone with Iowa reporters today and said unequivocally that twenty twenty four for Iowa. Republicans will hold caucuses. I in the country. They're serve laying the groundwork for their argument which could lead to something we've never seen in this country. Republicans nationally have some sort of nominating. A schedule and Democrats might have a different one. Wouldn't that be interesting. Well Yeah and we remember the Republicans had problems in. The Iowa caucuses was twenty twelve so finishes before but talk about this one. Starting a brand new system brand new way way of voting by the way there was a different form of of caucus. But why didn't they have some redundancy. Why didn't they keep the second system parallel? At least for the first time came out. You know that's a question that I'm sure Democratic Party Chairman Roy Price at some point. We'll face if he has a news conference and and by the way when we say use the the old system. That's just you know people picking up phones in calling the paper count and a hand county and it's very grass roots. See what people love about it a word. There are a lot of disappointed local people who volunteered spent hours preparing for the staying in to have it blow up like this and give them a black eye is really disappointing to them because they spent a lot of time preparing for this well and You know when they did try to call in because the APP didn't work they couldn't get through to anybody so all system seemed to fail and everybody's is indicating that it's not some outside foresee which we have been worried about going into the elections. Nobody said they were hacked or anything but it was an APP that was developed by the Democratic Party Lawrence Norden elections expert at Nyu School of law. said it's it's like a major retailer using new cash registers for the first time on Black Friday. What kind of black? I is this for the Democratic Party. Well I I guess we will determine airman that as the days and weeks unfold but there had already been discussion among the folks in the party nationally. That Iowa shouldn't go I because of let's demographics You had Julia on Castro making that argument in the last month of his campaign for the presidency. And you have people on the Democratic National Committee who may thank. That's a message that may have to be addressed within the party. Will and one can only imagine that different candidates have different reasons to want these results out and you know that there may be lawsuits to try to keep them from coming out because the whole point of the Iowa caucuses is that they act as this catapult to New Hampshire and now that momentum has kind of been shifted there are different candidates Bernie Sanders people to judge claiming Victories Stories Joe Biden. Didn't have a good night last night. So what is your sense of what I were means right now in this election and while it will be fascinating when these results come out and these candidates are confronted with it in the New Hampshire.

"Subscribe today to conversations with Bill Kristol. He analyze eleven instances where there were possible obstruction and then said that he really couldn't make a decision to with that interpretation. I personally felt he could have reached decision. He seemed to suggest yesterday that there was another venue for this, and that was congress. Well, I'm not sure what he was suggesting. But, you know, the department of Justice doesn't use our powers of investigating crimes as an adjunct to congress. General Bill bar in an interview with Jan Crawford of CBS news bar expressing frustration special counsel, Robert Muller for not reaching a conclusion on whether or not President Trump obstructed Justice. Let's talk about this, a Bill Kristol. Let me start with you. Do you think that Muller should have reached a conclusion? Do you agree with the attorney general bar? No, I think Muller was reading, you know, being very scrupulous than obeying, not just the law, but the department of Justice regulations. And that's the kind of public servant he is. I think Bill Barstow utterly disingenuous said, did you did Bill of unhappy or if Muller and said, in my judgment, actually, there are grounds for impeachment here, and there were five counts, at least of structure of Justice? Barbara does that absolutely right. Mr muller. You know, I echo that. And here's a here's a letter transferring that transfer. You know, Dorsey that's to the congress. I don't think so. What did you make of bars remarks? What he's done from the very beginning. He has basically spun this narrative from the beginning as we've talked about from day, one a summary. Of the report that really took us in a completely different direction. It said a few things I think that then what we actually ended up learning were in the actual report, and the direction that Muller, actually went and again, the press conference that he did. And you know, there have been some stories about Bill bars behavior back in the nineties with Iran contra, his ability to kind of use his position to sort of spin the facts in one direction or another. So this is just, you know, this is a spin more. And at the same time watching that made me think this is why we're going to need Muller to testified. Yeah. And this is why molar felt like he needed to come out yesterday. Right. I mean if you think about the two months you basically had a bar spinning he had the four page report. He had the Senate testimony and then you had bar there for eight minutes. Basically saying he's a by the books guy he was very clear about why he was unable to reach a decision because of this oil, see guidelines that basically says you can't indict a sitting president bring criminal charges against a president because there's no forum to adjudicate that other than congress and you have Bill bar there who. It's also clear why the president wanted Bill Barr this, this pit bull on his side as opposed to sessions. And that's the role he plays. And he continues like, but I think you're right. I mean, there's gonna be some pressure on Democrats. Do they subpoena more because from what Moeller said yesterday didn't sound like he expected hoped wanted to be before congress. The strange convergence sort of Bill barn, and Robert Mueller on opposite sides of this issue, but both of their words and actions are sort of leading to this point where laying the issue do does President Trump need to answer for, for what's laid out in the mole report at the feet of congress. Not in the Justice department occurs bar is leaning on this long held view that Justice department is independent of congress doesn't work for congress Muller sort of saying, here's my report, you can see what it says. No matter what the attorney general said the facts are laid out there it all relies on congress, that's sort of a strange convergence of these two men who are opposed on this particular the question about whether or not. Mahler was providing a roadmap for impeachment. President Trump weighed in on earlier today, take a listen. I can't imagine.

You know, and, and then somebody, I don't know, Joe Gucci of Colorado. I never heard of him. They pushed to begin impeachment hearings during a leadership meeting and Pelosi's office on Monday night. And then Pelosi and some of her people like Hakim Jeffries, Rosa from from queens. Rosa delauro from Connecticut. Sherry, boost those from Illinois. They rejected the calls. I know. Citing house oversight and reform committee chairman Elijah Cummings Pelosi asked you wanna shut down Elijah Cummings investigation and tell them to go home. Maybe should go doctor was wife if these kinds of problems with this with this federal investigation, but they're just going to keep pressing forward. I mean I don't what are they basing this off? If Muller and his gang of angry Democrats couldn't find anything. What, what are they? What are they looking for? I know they're looking for. But are they gonna find it? I don't think so. I think these are all all of their friends. Have these big problems with, you know Bill bars investigations..

"Time. Here I've got time to give you one little piece as we continue with, this how is it possible. For two sets of otherwise decent people to have very very different perspectives on things I'm telling you that the the over leftist in the media. Continually presents a narrative that is carefully. Crafted well scripted. And completely and totally untrue let me give you as, an example CNN's Brian Stettler I know we're, all used stem him all the time but just think about, what he's saying here, the president with his. Back up against the wall is saying journalists are dangerous sick enemies of the people That's where we. Are this is America Let me show, you feel, reactions from journalists. This morning Chuck Todd calling this outrageous he's saying here, he tries not to take the bait but this time he's reacting in the hopes that rational. Folks realize this is. Wrong and dangerous Bill Kristol and outspoken, Trump critic says. The president sounds closer in spirit to Putin that America, an SBA, date White House. Reporter for the, huffpost pointed out that other leaders in, the past have also used the phrase enemy of the people among those leaders Joseph Stalin Hitler Look enemy that people does have a Stalin era connotation it, was used in order to inflict pain and cause violence on populations of people throughout history if the president doesn't know that shortly someone has told, him by, now We you think about what's happened this week there's been. Three days of. Rallies the president singing the same tune but singing at more loudly. Shouting some of these attacks nowadays and there's certainly been, a new found focus on how he whips up his crowds against the press corps more and. More I think hate movement is the, proper term for what's going on The President Trump is not just telling his. Fans to ignore what we report he's telling people that we are the enemy Trump and some of his allies are promoting. A hate movement against the American press now I've been seeing that term, used more and more the first time. I saw more than a year ago I. Think was by NYU's Jay Rosen, and others are picking up on, it as well I think, it's, a helpful frame to understand, what the president is doing when when we see people booing journalists at rallies when when we see the. Death threats that. Come in over social media it's all part of this hate movement Yeah I, don't know how to tell you this You created Donald Trump The very people now who are outraged offended him put upon in the media who have passed along this carefully crafted Uber left. Wing agenda driven narrative you. Created the Trump movement you are. Reaping what you've sown Coming up at four thirty five. With unbelievable anti.

"Com if you're a gallagher goldmember there's a bunch of videos that we have posted where i kinda chronicled my adventure of going back and forth across the border and i had forgotten my passport for that trip i thought oh crap so i wound up in mexico without my passport i just had my driver's license well turned out that's all i needed but they took my driver's license and they ran it through the system in the lady asked me what i was doing and what what what what my business was and all that and it worked fine but i did not cross into mexico or enter the united states illegally like evidently the mayors of new york and apparently also boston did what a what a shock what a shock me while the president is at nato in brussels one of the never trumpers bill kristol is very worried that nato won't survive trump he's going to actually destroy nato this is an amazing thing the the the criticism that that continues to be directed towards the president of the united states and i would ask this of all of these smart wonderful folks who call themselves never trumpers do you notice how out of touch you are by bellyaching about a president who keeps fighting for america keeps fighting to put the country i do you notice that do you ever notice whether he's i understand the complications and the challenges involving free trade i get it the tariffs i i understand we have a legitimate fear that merchandise in consumer items are going to get marked up and going to become more expensive i get that but i love a big picture look at things and the big picture look i have is how many times this president internationally insists that american not get its fair share but america get treated with respect and the media and the never trumpers push back against this in such a profound way let me give you an example the media here's trump the master dealmaker even his critics who hated admit admitted he does all kinds of great deals has his whole career brian williams over at msnbc says well they're the grownups have to take over for this guy because tried to put america first and try to our and making the case that these other nato nations these the members of nato our allies are not paying their fair share well that's not what grownups do according to brian williams of msnbc well this leads me to a question i've probably asked you half a dozen times before where are the grownups and by that i mean both parties where are the grownups who can say for example mr president you're playing with house money we don't want just you and putin and two translators in the room especially coming off the north korea example we need professionals in the room with you so we know what is said for all time oh my lord i mean can you imagine we got to have the grownups in the room because trump can't be trusted with translators with putin and back to nevertrumper the weekly standard bill crystal here he was of course on msnbc worried that nato won't survive a president who's who's not playing footsie with them because we've never seen a president deal with nato or countries like germany and china and russia and incidentally one of trump's big points right now he wants to know why why russia is benefiting from this unfair deal with with with germany so i thought he was big mr proputin pro russia but here's bill kristol again these guys are committed to tearing down this presidency and that's just a given we have to know that they hate him they don't want him to succeed which zule frightening when you consider what that means the country but that's my assessment here's bill kristol on msnbc mike would fall is a frequent guest.
