"S capital, killing hopes for a bipartisan panel amid a Republican push to put the violent insurrection by Donald Trump's supporters behind them. Republicans killed the effort to set up a September 11th style inquiry into the attack on the capital by a pro trump mob despite broad popular support for such an investigation and please from the family of a Capitol police officer who collapsed and died after the siege and other officers who battled the rioters. In a procedural vote in the Senate. Today, six Republican senators broke ranks to back the commission, which was more than expected, but for fewer than the 10 needed to overcome a filibuster. And for it to advance many Weinberg reports. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed a bill that, if also passed by the Senate, would create a bipartisan 10 member commission to investigate the January 6th capital Insurrection by former President Donald Trump supporters leading up to today's Senate vote on the bill. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer voiced strong support for the commission, emphasizing its bipartisan nature. This commission is desperately needed. What has been perpetrated by President Trump over the last several months is the big lie. The big lie. That the elections were fixed that he is rightfully President. Nothing is more corrosive to our democracy than a view that elections are not on the level yet that has been propagated by Donald Trump and many of his allies. A commission condemned to the bottom of this in a clear way. It is a bipartisan commission. It is down the Middle Commission. It was significant Republican input by the Republican leader in the House and the Republican ranking member of the relevant committee. So this is right down the middle. If our Republican friends vote against this, I would ask them. What are you afraid of The truth. Are you afraid that Donald Trump's big lie will be dispelled? Are you afraid that all of the misinformation that is poured out will be rebutted by a bipartisan down the Middle Commission. This is about a democracy is about the future of our democracy. The big lie has eroded that democracy and we must do everything we can to rebut it. This is not a democratic or Republican obligation. This is an American obligation. Senator Amy Klobuchar echoed Schumer sentiment, reading a statement from Gladys Sick Nick, mother of Brian Sick, Nick, the Capitol police officer who died shortly after the insurrection. I give to you the words of slain officer Brian Sick, Nick's mother. Ordinary woman who never has been involved in politics now forced to do extraordinary things at lobby members of this body to simply get to the truth, she said. This not having a January six commission to look into exactly what occurred is a slap in the faces of all the officers who did their jobs that day. For months, National security experts have called for a bipartisan commission. But yet so many of our colleagues, sadly on the other side of the aisle are refusing to move on this Colleagues. We owe it to the heroic Capitol police to the first responders to the staff members who sat in closets for hours and hours and hours to the police officer who is called the n word 15 times and then sat in the rotunda and looked at another officer and said, Is this America? We owe it to them. Put themselves in harm's way to protect the capital and the sacred democratic process. Inaction is not an option. Senator Gary Peters also expressed support for the bill calling for a 9 11 style commission after the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks. Congress came together to create a bipartisan independent commission. January six marks a singular event in our nation's history. Similar What we experienced on 9 11, and there is simply no logical reason to oppose its creation.

"I got news for them. They will not win this race. We can't let them. We have to move fast. And that's what you're doing here. As former administrator of the environmental protection agency now senior advisor in the white house on climate. Jim mccarthy knows what's at stake here as well as anyone and she joins me now. It's great to have you on so The pledge the sort of headline pledged the biden administration is having american carbon emissions by twenty thirty. How much of that is in the vehicle space as you understand it. Well transportation is really big. And obviously we're very excited about the movement to electric vehicles especially vehicles being put together by union workers with pots in the united states of america including batteries now being manufactured here so there is a big transition to electric vehicles. And as you can see from president biden they're kinda great performance vehicles that you'd really wanna drive so the importance of today was really to put this iconic model f one fifty into show people that electric vehicles on just about city-dwellers or they are actually working vehicles and we can really take advantage of that but you know utilities as well. The energy sector has to be a pot of the effort. We're also looking at investments in transit will look at consumer rebates to get them to buy the vehicles of the future will looking at rebuilding our manufacturing grabbing back the supply chain that we've lost to other countries so this isn't about building producing second rate khazar products. It's really about. how do we grow. Good union jobs in at the same time sad grabbing the opportunities of future right here in the united states of america. So we know that there's going to be a huge bunch of electric vehicles this year. So things are moving their moving in the right direction. Just in terms of market forces you can afford developing plans developed produce electric vehicle batteries and they can then i know this troop gm to they sort of bootstrap their own platform. That's then modular. They can use it for different models. The edmonds folks say that thirty from twenty one brands will become available for this year compared to seventeen from twelve brands and twenty twenty. I guess the question is how much can the market on its own. And how much does the jobs plan need to get past or there need to be. Investments by the government to get to those targets of having emissions by twenty. Well is very clearly that the mar that the market can do a lot on. Its own. you don't just have ford and gm but she got volkswagen volvo. I mean we're talking about honda. I mean everybody is going electric and the question is who's going to win in that race and who's going to capture these markets so but it's also important to recognize that in the american jobs plan. There are incentives that will help consumers be able to afford these vehicles. We know that soon. Going to have parody with the cost of of combustion engines but we want them to have parody. now we want consumers to have opportunities for rebates we want to actually provide benefits to companies that have union workers and to actually manufacture these batteries. We wanna have opportunities for manufacturing upstream in the entire supply chain. So we're talking about grants and loans and other opportunities that we can bring to the table in the american jobs. Plan will accelerate everything. We're doing everything from electric vehicles to transit two buses. I mean we are talking about transforming our transportation sector so that we're ready to bill the future just rely on what we had in the past. That's what president biden means about bill back better in just a start because we're looking at investments and broadband. We're looking at investments in the future. That's really going to pointing us to win in this economic challenge that we face that we face right now and lord knows the pandemic is getting close to being behind us and we want it to be there. Now's the time to look at hope and opportunity new jobs good paying jobs really building the future in a way that we're gonna be proud to hand to our kids because it's going to be low cobb and it's going to address the issue of climate change and provide us an opportunity to Live healthier and safer lives. That's what it's all about. We should know there's a. There's a bunch of cars coming out of detroit. American manufactured the hummer. There's to be all electric. Hummer which right now is a concept car which i think is moving into production near. I got to see up close which was pretty cool at least the sort of concept models. So there's there's a whole bunch of stuff coming out. Here's the question this number stuck with me so if you wanna hit that that target by twenty we wouldn't be zero emissions at national level by two thousand thirty year ninety five percent to one hundred sales to one hundred percent sales in new light duty vehicles in the us by twenty thirty i mean. Can we get there. I guess is the question like that. It's easy to say stuff but but can we get to that target. That's nine years from now. Well we got to that target fifty percent below two thousand and five levels by twenty thirty by looking at.

Six insurrection along the lines the nine eleven commission. Now this comes a little bit as a surprise because it comes after months of negotiations that he was party to near probably a lot of reasons for this announcement. One of those reasons is likely mccarthy's a principal figure in the big lie that donald trump won the election. And everything that happened around. It here is mccarthy two days after the election president trump won this election. So everyone who's listening. Do not be quiet. Do not do not be silent about this. We cannot allow this to happen before very is we cannot allow this to happen. Were very is trump. Won the election unequivocal. It's easy of course just focus on donald trump's role in fomenting insurrection but trump one. We have to stop them from stealing. It like kevin mccarthy said was the general rhetorical call from a lot of republicans in the days and weeks after the election. Not we will wait and come votes and see who one and then after eventually became incredibly clear trump lost. He'd gotten you know beaten pretty badly seven million votes there was very little bravery from congressional republicans until they were finally forced to vote just hours after living through the capital right on jerry riot on january six and even then not so much and of course. Let's not forget the phone call. Kevin mccarthy had with president trump in the middle of the insurrection on january six. You might remember. This happened during that came out during that second impeachment trial. The president face republican congressman jaime herrera butler of washington said the mccarthy told her about the call in a statement that was then entered as evidence in trump's second impeachment trial when mccarthy finally reached the president on january sixth and asked him to publicly and forcefully. Call off the riott. The president initially initially repeated the falsehood that it was antiga had breached. The capital mccarthy. Refuted that and told the president that these were trump supporters. That's when according to mccarthy the president said. Well kevin i guess. These people are more upset about the election than you are. They are barricaded in a building being invaded by a mob. That is beating up cops left and right he saying. Call off the dogs mr president. And that's what he gets back movie villain level menacing from donald trump. Who's talking to people that were at that moment in physical danger being marauded by that. Mom chanting hang mike pence erecting. A gallows outside of at that point amalgamated assaulted dozens of officers. That call will. It clearly struck kevin mccarthy enough to relay the conversation later on to a colleague all of that would be part of the january six increase. Naturally and of course kevin mccarthy was also one of the one hundred forty seven republicans a majority of the caucus who voted to overturn the election. To defy the will of the people and install the loser over the winter. I'll give him mccarthy's title his role in the insurrection and his call with president one can imagine he doesn't want to be a principal. Subject the incri. Although i have to say it is still strange. The apparently played along with the idea. He might support it. I mean last night the very program this very desk right if you watch the program. We had congressman bennie thompson of mississippi on the show now thompsons the chair of the homeland security committee and he's been four months negotiating with the ranking member of that committee that would be congressman. John cocoon newark was a republican. And you told me. The two of them negotiated to reach a bipartisan. Deal on this january six in creating engage in lots of the classic. Good-faith bipartisan congressional. Work kind of stuff used to happen. A fair amount still happens at stuff. That's kind of in the background of congress and congressmen thompsons. And kevin mccarthy was part of the negotiations and he has the receipts mccarthy. He knew about it. He exchanged with us saying he wanted to see certain things So he was engaged all the time. The republican leadership needs to step up If we have to produce letters that the minority leader rope tours. Saying this is what i would in a me. We'll do that now. Mccarthy has decided to flip the table over. it's honestly more surprising who's ever engaging faith because we know what his boss his boss in mar-a-lago thinks about the whole situation and we know what the rising power in his own caucus thinks about it. Here's republican congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green of georgiana. The house for today explicitly defending the honor of january six insurrectionists while it's catch and release for domestic terrorists and tif a blm the people who breached the capital on january. Six are being abused. Some even being held for twenty three hours a day in solitary confinement she literally describes him as people who breach the capital. As if there's nothing wrong with that look lesson here is you cannot straddle the big lie the truth of what happened in the big lie repel each other. Donald trump did not win the election. Job i did and you cannot put one foot on each and hope to stand. That's lesson for all. Republicans it's lesson we're seeing down in arizona.

The commission will be bipartisan in nature modeled after the 9 11 commission.

By ensuring a bipartisan commission reviews all evidence and report back to us on this horrific event. Mr Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to insert the text of my men in the record.

The gentleman from Illinois is recognized for four minutes. Thank you. Mr Speaker. I first want to thank the U. S. Capitol police sergeant in arms employees who were here on the front lines. We're hearing from Congressman Davis of Illinois during the unprecedented attack. It is imperative that we focused on ensuring a safe inauguration day. Protecting members and staff during this time of increased threats. Making sure that our Capitol police officers have the support that they need. We need to ensure that what we saw happen a week ago today never happens again. Yesterday, I introduced along with representatives Kat Cohen Comber a bill that would create a National commission on the domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol. The bipartisan commission would consist of 10 members. Five Republicans, five Democrats appointed by the next president, and by House and Senate leadership, this commission would be tasked with investigating the domestic terrorist attack that occurred In this building just a week ago. It will provide US recommendations to prevent similar attacks from happening in the future. What we saw last week. Scared all of us who were here. It also showed adversaries What it takes to take out a branch of government. This commission is done with his investigation. It will submit a report to the president and to Congress detail in his findings and recommendations to ensure that no foreign or domestic adversary could accomplish what was done on January 6. We need to ensure that we fully understand what took place last week and any and all issues that declared during our response, Republicans and Democrats need to work together. We must unite to prevent any attacks like this from happening in the future, and we must protect this institution, not just for us for the American people. That's why we should defeat the previous question so that we can establish this bipartisan commission to equip us with the information that we need to support our Capitol police and the men and women who work in these buildings.

What effect do you think this might have on the long running effort to either change or completely away with the electoral college system. I know there are some folks critics of college system. That will help them. But i actually think this will help. Reinforce people's understanding of the importance of the electoral college because remember that the biggest reason for the electoral college system being put in was because the framers the constitution were afraid that if we had a national popular vote system candidates would simply go to the big cities the big urban areas to campaign for president and they would ignore all the smaller states the more rural areas of the country. You know with the electoral college system. Yeah the larger stage with larger populations still have more electoral college votes but even the smallest state has a minimum of three electoral college votes and if a candidate can attract enough support in those areas of the country. They can still win the presidency. So i actually think what has happened. This year actually helps a once again. Established the legitimacy and the wideness of having the electoral college system.

Senate Judiciary Committee sends Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to full Senate as Democrats boycott vote
"And I'm Noelle King. Good morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee has advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. Mr Chairman, the votes for 12 years and 10 not present motion is passed. Thank you. All 12 Republican senators voted for her nomination. The committee's 10 Democrats did not show up. They were boycotting the proceedings. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzales has been following this story and the proceedings. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well so fairly short today. This morning. What happened? Yes, it all went by very quickly, all said, and done and under 12 minutes. This is a very traumatic Shift from what we saw last week with hours and hours of testimony at least 20 hours of questioning Barrett by the members on the panel, both Republicans and Democrats, But today Democrats boycotted they did not show up. Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee sidestepped that no show to move barrettes nomination forward to the full Senate. Democrats said they were boycotting because they wanted to highlight the damage that bear it would do to healthcare, reproductive and voting rights and the fact that the vote took place amid a presidential election. And this is one battle. Democrats say perhaps the lose, but they're looking to win a bigger war. Graham alluded to that when he talked about the next vote on the Senate floor. Let's take a listen They started this On May For up to May that be a 60 vote requirement in the Senate today, and he's referring to the Senate filibuster there. This is a requirement of 60 votes that was once needed to approve a nomination like barrettes. But the filibuster was eliminated in 2013 as Democrats struggled to move their judges forward when they control the chamber with the tight margin, So that's what Graham is referencing, and he added later that perhaps this will be addressed again in the future. However, now that the Senate is controlled by Republicans with tight margins, they're able to push through barrettes nomination with just 51 votes. It's a preview of the battles to calm that this will go on after barrettes nomination this conversation even as far as she goes to the floor to be considered by the full Senate, and we see if Democrats ultimately changed the dynamics of power in the Senate or the presidency through the upcoming election day. How did Democrat to respond today? They didn't just say nothing right? Yes, there had been rumors for days that Democrats could boycott these hearings. They were facing a lot of pressure from outside groups to even skip out on the hearings last week questioning their it. But they decided not to do that last week. Instead, they did it to Dae. So later yesterday, they confirmed that they would all not show today they're empty seats were filled instead with images of Americans who have used the affordable care act. This is a case that could become it could be considered before the court next month. And so this is one critical issue They've been highlighting all along. They also held a news conference after the vote. This was led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on the steps of the Capitol is take a listen. The nomination of Amy Cockney Barrel. Is the most illegitimate process I have ever witnessed in the Senate, and her potential confirmation will have dire, dire consequences. For the Senate. With his Supreme Court and our entire country for generations to come. So this was the theme they've been driving through this entire process. Barrett will shift the court to a 63 conservative majority, and they say she's a foe to the affordable care act. The landmark abortion rights case, Roe v. Wade, and she could play a role. If there's a dispute in the election. This is activated activated opposition as well. There were protesters outside the capital. Speaking against this nomination, this resulted in about a half a dozen arrests so far today I spoke to Judiciary Committee Democrat Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut yesterday, said the watchword for them is no more business. As usual. He and the other members have been driving home this point that this is a sham process. It's not normal. It's not writing Americans should see it for what it is and probably see more of this in the coming days, because there is so much acrimony over this nomination. Yes, exactly So many reasons. We're in the midst of a pandemic. We're rushing this through in 30 days, one of the fastest, we've seen the fight over health care. And, of course, you know the division between Republicans and Democrats. Really. Exemplified by President Trump pushing this forward and so there's a long history as well of these fights over the Supreme Court in the controversy surrounding these nominations if we go back to 2016, Democrats try to move forward. President Obama's nominee at the time. This is Judge Merrick. Garland and Republicans refused because they said they were so close to an election months away. But here we are now people are early voting and they're pushing this through. So this is set into motion a series of debates to calm and we're even hearing about it from the Democratic nominee Joe Biden this morning. We understand he told 60 minutes that he's going to create A study a commission to bipartisan commission to study whether they should add more seats to the courts a lot more to come here, including next week, right what happens then? So tomorrow, the nomination for Barrett actually will reach the full Senate floor. It's going to be followed by some procedural votes on Friday, as well as on Sunday. In between, we're going to see a lot of debate an argument back and forth. But the rial final moment for this will come Monday when the full Senate will submit their votes for bear to confirm or vote against her nomination to the Supreme Court. NPR congressional reporter Claudio Gonzalez. Thanks, Claudia. Thanks for having me

The debate the final debate. It's just like Game seven of the World Series. We are 12 days away from the election. So the debate tonight I don't know, Joe. But do you think it really will change anything? Maybe if Joe Biden screws up badly I don't think so. People still gonna vote for him. I mean, he could really I believe he could collapse and people will vote for him. That's true. He could probably just Collapsed just like his head hits the podium and they'll say, relax to use looking. There's a better choice than trump. So ah! He's got problems coming up. Well, he couple things tonight he was goingto probably get get bombarded again. With the question of Will you pack the court? Will you increase the size of the Supreme Court? Pretty dramatic Step FDR tryto once and it was so controversial, he headed back down pretty dramatic to increase the court. Set of 9 13 20 0 and loaded up with the far left judges. Would he do it? That's he refuses to answer. It's too controversial. So tonight he was going to hit with that so to deflect all of that he is deliberately even though he's in hiding, and he can't talk and he's in the basement. He came out to do this interviewer, he revealed. I will appoint a commission right here. It is right if elected. What I will do is I put together a National Commission of Bipartisan Commission of Scholars. Constitution. Scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal conservative And I will ask them over. 190 days come back to me with recommendations as to how Tio reform the court system because it's getting out of whack. He does sound like the Godfather at the end, right? That final scene with the phone, man. I did that, pop. Oh, yeah, He does talk like that now, eh? So what does that mean? Let's break that down Scholars. What does that mean, far left college professors. That's what it means. You want your life in the hands of these far left wing radical college professors. And a commission. You know, you know how commissions are as decisive leadership and he said, no make make recommendations to me. So recommendations means he's not bound by anything they tell him. But what he says I'll put together a bipartisan commission. You know, what's a bipartisan commission? This debate commission? It is the most biased rig thing in the world, led by the slimy swamp creature, Frank Fahrenkopf. It's got 15 people on the board of directors. Look at this. We have Republicans. We have Democrats. We have every single one of them is on the record. Say Trump is evil, disgusting. Every single person on the border direct so you can put together a bipartisan commission. You could find a lot of right wing or Republican guys who ate Donald Trump. So when he says, we'll put Republic you know, whenever you see that Lincoln Project It's stupid Lincoln Project only Republicans and Democrats who is the Republican Mitt Romney that the Republicans, but there's serious Trump aide Ah, I guess that means he will. That's a yes isn't it? That he will try to pack the court? You know, you know how commissions where Cuomo uses them, too. You know, he doesn't have the courage to come out and say he wants to do it so he'll create a commission. Have them. Tell him So now I'm going to do what the commission says. When all along. We know what he wants to do. Yeah, they're saying clearly it's a yes if it was a No. I have no intention of packing the court for then Why would you have a commission? Of course you would have no commission. Eso. Something is wrong with Barack Obama. Now the Internet. Is he just playing games here or see this stupid? First of all, he has a rally yesterday. Biden is in trouble in the really poles. You know, you see all these fake poles. Biden's had 10 points 12 points just like he did with Hillary at this 120.2016 in the real poles. Biden's in trouble. The one thing If you read all the fake poles, it is going to win Pennsylvania. Biden is going to win Pennsylvania. That's all they keep buying This locked up Pennsylvania. Well, you know, it hasn't In the real poles. He hasn't been. The proof was last night, They finally got Barack Obama to campaign. What's the first place? They send him? Pennsylvania? That's not because they haven't locked up wherever you send. Obama is where you need help. And Biden is particularly weak in Philadelphia and black voters, which is unusual for a Democrat. But that's where Obama was sent to Philadelphia to try to help there. So that's where they're in trouble. You can always tell where they're in trouble. By where Obama is since for stop Philadelphia last night to see the You see that you saw the footage of Obama's speaking, but you see no long shots of the crowd because there's three people that showed up. No, no, Come on, and be honest is about 20 cars. 20 cars, All right, but take a look at my Twitter. This couple events. There's one before where he's in the gymnasium, and there's about six people home and look, look at the pictures. You I'm not kidding. Three of them are on their phones. They're looking at their phones are not listening to him. So this is the relevant this guy has become. There was a New York Times claims they have Donald Trump's tax returns. Nobody knows if it's true, they're just making it up. They've been caught totally making up stories before. S 01 of the first bomb bombshell was that they only paid $750 in taxes. They don't mention he also paid 200 million in business taxes, but The bombshell they put out about two days ago was that This is before he's president. He was in looking to do business in China. The Trump or what was he doing? Why was he trying to open hotels in China? What was that all about Trying to open in China? He even had a secret bank account. Well, it's not a secret bank accounts listed on his tax returns. That's that's where they claim they saw it, and it wasn't his bank account. It was a corporate bank account for Trump International hotels. Well, here's Obama license. And can you imagine if fired at a secret Chinese bank account? When I was running for re election. You think? You think you think Fox News might have been a little concerned about that? They would have called me. Beijing, Barry Okay, now, is he really this stupid that he doesn't? You can't figure this out. I mean, it was president could be that stupid. If you're a hotel chain with hotels around the world, Donald Trump has a dozen hotels in multiple countries and continents. And he wanted to open and Shina No. Why would he want open in China? Well, maybe for the same reason that Marriott has 12 hotels in China. Hilton has 14 hotels in China for season three hotels in China. Crowne Plaza has hotels in China. Best Western, as all of our hotel companies have hotels in China. And when you go over there to do business, what's the first thing you have to do? You have to open a local bank account because you gotta write local checks. You got to start paying for things. Whether it's filing documents paying license fees are expenses over so you need that you can't use out of the country checks that easily. So you always start with a local bank account..

"To make this bipartisan commission work in a way that refuted the expectation of the pundits in Washington who thought That the 9 11 commission would soon Devolve into a partisan food fight. Well, that never happened. And in fact, at the end of the day We came up with a unanimous report, not a single dissenting voice and 43 recommendations unanimously and that power of unanimity. Was critical, in my view to galvanizing the Congress to accept our recommendations and to learn the lessons that you point out, Tom that we learned In the course of this about sharing information about the various things that we could have done better and which we are now doing better. Have you lost any big cases? Yeah. Okay. Good. Now you're just like the other three of us. You know, you can't be a trial or you lose cases. Okay. So fact one of the cases I write about the Abscam invest, That's right one that I lost. And so you go into private practice. After years in government practice. And matter of fact. You were asked to interview with the couple pig dying firms. Who is that? After water Day. Then I've been in private practice ever since. From time to time. I've taken something of a leave of absence to take on some Essentially pro bono matters like Whitewater like the 9 11 commission, but I've been in private practice since 1975 and Initially I was courted by Edward Bennett, Williams, Williams and Connolly and Louis. Not very nice. Now, then if your lesson let me taste them. That was so that was so head. Did you think you're pretty hot stuff, man? When you got the call? That was terrific. Have been it. Listen worse. And Louis Nice or to Toledo? Yeah, for the Top of the heap. Of course, there were a lot of people carrying Louise bags for decades who expected to be anointed and I decided that I would go with a different route and develop my own practice and not Be in a situation where if I sneezed in the hallway, four people would hope it was cancer. You are listening to champions of justice with your host, Tom Girardi, Bill Sherman off and Michel Bernard. Our guest today is attorney and author. Richard then Vinny STA. Michael You know, Richard, as I look at this book, one of the things that you said Is being part of the 9 11 commission is that one of your goals was to avoid the mistakes of the investigation of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. And the investigation of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Do you believe that those goals were effectuated? And if so, how did you do that? I think the the lessons that were there in front of us to learn or that in order to Run a credible investigation. We had to be as transparent as possible. It's my view. That transparency is an essential ingredient to the proper functioning of our democracy. And we did that by having open hearings where the public could see that the most powerful people In America, both in the Clinton administration and the Bush administration were being questioned under oath publicly about their decisions about what had it had occurred in the run up to 9 11 And I think we earned our credibility by asking the tough questions in a bipartisan, hopefully nonpartisan way. Even though those who were on the receiving end of pointed questions were uncomfortable and in many cases didn't like it. But as I say, you know, This isn't an issue of partisanship. It's an issue of trying to get to the truth and the one skill that I think that I brought to the 9 11 commission was the ability to ask to ask questions. To listen to the answers as we his trial lawyers know it's essential to do and then to follow up and to get really answers to the questions we're asking, And so that's that's what I tried to do is part of the 9 11 commission. Well, one of the things I recall, and I think I recall correctly that You are allowed to interview then President Bush in private session, but not in a public session. Get Condoleeza Rice was subjected to the public questioning. How is it determined? Who would testify publicly? Vers is privately. And how What was that process like? Well, there's never been a situation where a president is obliged. To answer questions. In public. Um President. Ah! Ford. You answered questions in public, but he chose to do so. We never would have had the the backing of the courts were weak to insist on it. And it wasn't something. Ah, fight that we were prepared to make. But on the other hand It was very important that we have the opportunity to question the president and the vice president, and indeed we did the same with President Clinton and former vice president AL Core. And we Ah, we questioned both administrations. Top executives extensively, and that was an important part of what we learned here in the Emperor's new clothes. I talk Ah, a bit about the questioning of former President Bush, as well as former President Clinton. I think in both cases we had a cordial Interchange. President Bush told us what he knew, and he told us what he didn't know which was also quite fascinating and which is set out in the book. You know, we have talked. We talked earlier in the program and at the very beginning stages, Tom said that perhaps Watergate eyes the most important issue that we could talk about. And yet on the flip side of that coin We have white wire, which may in its own way, be equally important. Your views on on the whole Whitewater matter. I mean, it started out as an investigation of the business dealings of the president and his wife. And some people would say that it it moved off course. Into a whole different area where it should not have gone your views on that. I think after eight years, um hiatus since the various investigations that comprised Whitewater And there were probably a dozen different allegations. We can really see how insubstantial these allegations were what I learned as Chief counsel for the Democrats in the Senate White Order Committee was that The press was neither pro Republican or pro Democrat, pro liberal or pro conservative it Wass. Absolutely and unrestrained, oddly pro scandal And so the boy pot is kept at the boy good for quite a period of time. And yet at the end of the day Not only was no in propriety shown by the president in his official actions in Whitewater Much less illegality. But that at the end of the day, then President Clinton acted as enabler in chief by presenting his opponents with the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which I had Nothing to do with from the standpoint of investigating. We were all finished with our business and And gave his opponents the opportunity to Shows him in propriety. And I was tremendously let down by that, as I described in the book, But again, this did not rise in my mind to anything. Like what? Our framers Had in mind when they fashion the remedy of impeachment. And yet Clinton's opponents took it upon themselves to make this into an impeachable offense. And of course, I testified. Under oath in the impeachment proceeding about precedents comparing Archibald Cox and Leon Dworsky on the one hand to Kenneth Starr on the other. And We saw what resulted but the president Clinton through Ah Monica Lewinsky's assertions. Walked up the steps of the scaffold put the rope around his neck. What was unwilling to pull a trapdoor lever. So have you written anything else? Well, many, many years ago, I wrote a book called Stonewall. With my colleague George Frampton.

"Tom. Rick Snyder of the fraternal order police, the idea of this money, one of the things that you said is that the funding has to be in addition to. What we are already funding the police department at it can't be in lieu of these critical other things that we are doing you're asking for a tax increase to get this done. I it's the only way I can read this are there. No other places where some level of cut can occur. Well, actually, not within the police department. I mean, we're still struggling just to get the officers. Into the police department to actually put the cameras on you got to remember the last year. We also set another record. And that was the number of officers leaving the police department we had a hundred and ten officers leave last year, which was seventy percent above and beyond. What was projected? And we know for a fact we're going to lose a nother forty Indianapolis police officers in just the first quarter of two thousand and nineteen. So it's a huge issue. But in addition to that what we said was we proposed? Hey truth in funding commission, that would be a bipartisan commission to mmediately launched. This issue of how would we finance such a project doesn't necessarily include a tax increase, but there's many other types of funding options that could be available. We found that a workable model exists when we had the staffing commission, and our recommendation is to have something in very similar fashion. So we'll get all getting around the table and find the solutions without a doubt, though, what has been made clear to us. By for our community wants this equipment.

I think both have made clear that they think there's value in technology. But she roaches also made clear his substantial concerns about the costs again. I think that's where the value of the funding commission, the truth commission could really come out what we need to do to the community. Hey, it's one thing to say we want body cameras. It's another thing to talk about what it truly take to make a program successful. We need to put that together. Bring it back to the community. And to the residents and say is this an investment you are willing to make now fishing. No, then we can drop back and regroup, but we're responding to what we've heard our community say we've been actively. Engage you with our community identify. What is it that?
