GM Recalls Some Electric Chevy Bolt Vehicles

"Cars are being recall for the second time in less than a year. CBS NEWS Transportation correspondent Errol Barnett has the latest horrified neighbors watched as a Chevy bolt burst into flames engulfing this Virginia home. The last thing I thought was that the car would have spontaneously lit on fire. Scott Virgin in Florida had the same issue with his bolt. The Fire department was unable to put the battery out. They had to drag it by the side of the road and let it burn overnight. A defective battery inside the car has led to nine bolt fires. And prompted GM issue its second recall for nearly 69,000 vehicles worldwide. As the Delta Covid 19 variant

China Sanctions Wilbur Ross and Others, Responding to Hong Kong Warnings

"Fresh sanctions on a handful of US individuals. It's retaliation for sanctions the bite and administration imposed on Chinese officials last week. Over Beijing's crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong. Its latest attack comes just days before a visit to China by Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and US China ties are already tense, though, as NPR's John Ruit reports there is no sign China's sanctions will derail the visit. Sanctions are the first imposed by China under a new law passed in June, which facilitates retaliation for foreign sanctions. Among those it hits a former Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and the China director at Human Rights Watch Sophie Richardson. For years, Beijing's responded to US sanctions and tariffs with tit for tat measures in Beijing's calculation, it had to respond to the US Bonnie Lynn, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, says doing so before Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman's trip makes sense would disappear better if it happened a couple days after Deputy Secretary Sherman's trip that she says might risk being interpreted as a signal that the meeting didn't go well. And Sherman will be the most senior U. S official to travel to China since President Biden took office. Relations are at their worst in decades. But there's speculation that the trip could start to lay the groundwork for a meeting sometime this year between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping. There is a desire to be able to showcase that the two world leaders can work together and part of that is being able to meet and discuss issues they agree on as well as those where they have differences, and I really hope As we see more of these incidents is on either side that they won't derail progress towards the usual meeting because both sides, she says, have significant incentives for Biden and she to meet sooner rather than later.

Insurrections and getting committee stood up your reaction to the fact that nancy or shall we call him. shall we called him. Marie-antoinette doesn't want to have any truth telling republicans on her committee so has she really made a mistake now congressman. Is it now not clear to everyone that the january the six quote unquote commission is just a political sham. It is a political sham. It's going to be bipartisan but without a disagreement at the start as to any aspect of it because she has managed to pick people who already agree with her at least she believes they do and Starting of course with liz cheney. She's got somebody who Has basically said that the republican party and anyone who said that there were irregularities in arizona or pennsylvania are inherently un-american and likens us to the people on the wrong side of the civil war The reality is our constitutional obligations were met. She chose to go and other way but nancy. Pelosi wants to turn all of that into a january six once in a millenium Sort of a claim And she's going to run that through with this sham commission.

"On the morning of january eleventh. Jackie was at her son. School probably hoping he had just spent the night at a friend's house and his phone died and his friends phone died and his friends. Parents phone died and then all the phones on the block died. Because you would tell yourself anything to not think the worst and then you do whatever you can to find them at eight thirty a. m. jackie was in the school guidance. Counselors office at that same moment in the gym. A student was walking on top of a row of rolled up gym mats that were lined up vertically against the wall. Each matt stood almost seven feet high and three feet across making a sort of makeshift walkway. Why anyone was allowed to walk on a seven foot. High vertical rolled up. Jemat is anyone's guess. But in one of the matt's the students saw what looked like feet wearing hanes socks. She called some friends over and when they saw what she saw. One of them screamed lowndes. High head athletic trainer philip pipe. Low and one of the other coaches ran across the gym. Push the mat over on its side and a male's body tumbled out along with blood and vomit pipe blow-back away. The other coach told the students to leave the job at that moment. Back in the guidance counselors office. The phone rang the volume may have been tad too high because coming from the other end. Jackie could clearly hear someone say. They found a body in the gym. The guidance counselor rushed out of the room and jackie sat there probably frozen in terror because in that moment she just knew that body was the body of her son. Kendrick when police. Ems arrived on the scene. They confirmed that the body and the matt was indeed. That of kendrick. Johnson

And they're, they're in the dark and they're they're in a forest and it's nighttime and and the three babies react very differently. But the youngest is is distraught and very worried and very much just cries out for Mom throughout the book. And and then, of course, mom eventually comes back after they try to comfort each other and, and do all sorts of things. Mom comes back. And I just love her reaction cuz she comes back. And she says, what's all the fuss? You know, she could come back and I remember, he picked up this book, and I read it to him. And he kind of looked at me, when I finished, she looked up at me and looked at the back of the little baby. And put his hand over the smallest owl and then just closed the book and put it back on the Shelf. But that will him, you know, he's, he's not baby owl, you know, as soon as this goes upstairs in high circles, the bathroom work goes to work.

Georgetown Law Professor Barnett Explains Why Court Packing Is Unconstitutional

"You in when we need you. Court packing is unconstitutional. This is a statement you gave to this. So called Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court, which is shocking to me in and of itself. I'm sure the Supreme Court justices are keeping an eye on this and it could well affect them and depending on how they feel about things. Tell us what you you said to the commission and which is not printed here in reason Magazine. Yeah, I testified orally, and I submitted written testimony, which I recommend that people take a look at because it's got a longer version of the article, and really mark. The argument is actually very simple. And that is that this Congress does have the power to set the number of justices at any number of wishes, and that number is varied from six on the low side to 10 on the high side. The last 150 years. It's been nine. But whenever Congress changes the law, it has to do so constitutionally that and you have to ask what power is it using to accept the number and change change the number? And it's the necessary and proper clause, which gives Congress the power to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution, its powers, including and the powers of any other department, which is the judicial department. That's what it is, which means a law to change the number must be necessary. And it also must be proper. So we have to look and see what the meaning of necessary is and what the meaning. Alright, let's slow down because you make it very, very important point. This clause. Which is kind of tucked away necessary and proper clause. As the court recognized this as an important clause, absolutely, including in the affordable, including in the Affordable Care Act challenge in the Affordable Care Act Challenge. Five justices said that the individual insurance mandate Was not a proper exercise of Congress's power. Um they can't make you buy insurance under the commerce power that's improper under the necessary and proper clause. Mhm. So this is

And there's been a lot of footage on social media about about the situation in Yangzhou, but actually it's been around the region. So about 100,000 people had to be relocated because of the flood. And this has been going on for several days now since Saturday, So there's some really dramatic scenes showing up on social media. What have you been saying? One video that I got sent from someone? I know who's living there showed just how scary this kind of flooding can be. Yeah, yeah. Are you admire? Come on. I? Yeah, I don't know the woman filming this video. She's live streaming and she's pointing it at the street, which is just covered in water, and it looks like a river And she's saying Oh my gosh, there's a father and his child that are just swept away swept right down the street by by the floodwaters, so she's just yelling at them. Please get to hold on to something, but there's nothing that they can hold onto. And the water is about the level of the hood of the cars on the side of the street.

I'm very very good at doing. And i'm always really willing to trust those rates. Like if i just think someone's never bluffing this bought and don't be valley just full always no matter what it is not even a really a consideration and that being said on the opposite side of that if i think someone has a somewhat we capped range or if i think they're capable of making very big folds. I will trust at always just always. I'm just always willing to follow through on spots like that since One of the me. One of my favorite hand. I've ever played Was a day. Two of the ten k pilo. Wpa champ and I registered started the day. I made the final table the day before. So i can register to last second so happened last minute Set with like thirty five. Forty big blinds and like third orbit playing seven handed and Hashem opens utd demand appeal like king. Cain jack devin or something. Like that in cutoff blindfold. Flop is nine nine nine five.

I call rivers in ace any triple barrels forty percent pot and when he barrels i decide to go all in and the reason why is because i thought that he would assume i would only ever have aces and watts and nothing else that i have now. Full house quads and no other hand ever because my jam was for. Let's say his bat was for like forty. K into one hundred k. By jam was for like fifty k. More so as for like ninety k total so it was he was getting like absurd odds who he would have been getting like five to one on a call and i just ran a pure bluff for him and the reason why i did was can stop for one of your side cards nine. No no so you just had had barricades. Yep bear kings no blockers no anything all right and the reason why i was willing to follow through on it is while i hadn't played much with them there. I've played with him in the past. I played with him in home in the past in the past and other mexicans in the past and i always thought that he was the jubilee. A really good hand reader that he's you know capable. Maybe that is not necessarily kept up to date with the pure theory of stuff but that he has a very consistent game is good at putting people on hands and proper ranges and in that spot. I assumed that he would correctly. Read that i would either only ever have pocket aces or quads for value. I would never have a worse winter. Value and i and i hoped that he would also assume that. I was never capable bluffing there.

It's just a matter of how long will it take right or people would be in a situation where they're not needing to wear a mask in more social situations you know haircare has been really strong for us fragrance so i think the get the shopper community has learned about self care learned about clean organic ingredients as well as you try new routine for the above the mask and we continue to see that growing. I didn't even think about that but above the mask though people just care about the eyeliner lashes. Maybe not the blush lipstick so much. That's what you've seen. We're seeing a lot of fund self expression in. Its beauty is wonderful way for that to happen and the other thing. I'm so proud about. Is that we really try to focus. Bring out the possibilities of beauty for everybody in meeting all of our guests at ways that from a guest who wants a more natural. Look to guess who wants to really be an artist and explorer. And we're seeing all of those folks apply it. Sounds like you all have really pivoted and turn to what the consumer needed. But i guess. What's the biggest challenge. Now as we're coming out of this as maybe people start to get back to more pre pandemic trends. What's the biggest challenge that you face at this point. I see more opportunity than challenge. I think for retail being a great omni channel retailer for sure it's continued about safety and it's also about get ready. Get ready because the shopper. You know i think. Spending is been continue to accelerate. Now we're not sure when that's going to happen so we'll cautious for the first half of the year but you know for us again because we meet the gas across many different categories and rituals. I think there's just frankly a lot of opportunity. But i would say there's uncertainty right about when we're truly going to be through the pandemic win. It's really same for everybody to be together and to be situations where they don't have to wear a mask all the time and so we're pacing ourselves through those kinds of challenges but feel like very optimistic than course received the dental. I think everybody is mary. One of the controversies. We've seen recently as teen vogue the new editor and chief there of getting some anti asian post that were brought up from her past. I know as a result. You've stopped advertising there. Can you tell us any more about that. How long might last. We don't know yet but we absolutely stand against hate. And i think especially right now. There's so many challenges for the asian american population in the us. Obviously what's happened recently as well. And so what we're doing is just stepping back on assessing and will determine what we're what our next steps are after that but really ulta beauty is about inclusion. I mean everything that we do about meeting our guests. Whatever age or race or gender or sexual orientation you know. We're about a category and a a brand that really meets. Everybody brings people together and shows the possibilities of beauty and so anything that is against that. That's really separating. Us is something that we obviously canceled for marijuana.

I have being half a million dollars for a house that doesn't exist in real life and that's before we even get to the sixty nine million dollar art sale last week and that's where this nfc stuff has brought us and look. We should not be surprised. We're living in a one division economy. We got super low interest rates that are supposed to encourage people to take risks and now people are using inflated crypto currencies to inflate new markets and crypto art and crypto collectibles. Layers of self reinforcing invented. Reality here's the reason why this stuff is nonsense. The beauty of digital technology is its ability to eliminate scarcity value something digital.

Sounds crazy at first right but what are baseball cards. Except for pictures of athletes created with artificial scarcity and today we experienced player moments through video clips more than photos so it makes sense to have a licensed collectors version and the purchase of people's piece for sixty nine million dollars. Not as crazy as it seems you understand. Why the buyer did it yes. It was partly about the art itself but it was also a crypto capitalist strategically using his inflated currency to do what. Vc's have largely failed to do over the last five years and that sparked the mainstream imagination. For what blockchain can actually do for markets beyond currency speculation and that person succeeded. So yes there are some crazy.

Yes, it's a larger sample is frequently the case though some Some national surveys on hot button issues will will use the sample about in these people. This is always important question in political pulling people that you know our voters or just a sample of the adult us, population. It's. A. If. I recall registered voters. It's not necessarily everyone who's going to be able to vote. Are What everyone who's GonNa. WIND UP VOTING! but people who You know at least have suggested a an intention to, but yeah, there's another. To again to me startling. Finding out of this, which is that Nearly one fifth of people of both Republicans and Democrats say that they would support some level violence after the November election of their candidate didn't win. Can you go into that? Well now we come to. The two most troubling findings. In our report, Rick. first of all we ask voters whether they would be willing. To support or condone. Violence if they're candidate didn't win the twenty twenty presidential election. The specific wording is what would you think about? If. There were a of violence if the other party one. The twenty twenty presidential election. Do. You think there would be no justification for violence a little justification. A lot of justification or a great deal of justification. and. The percentage of the American public who basically said there'd be a lot of justification. was about nine to ten percent. In each of the two parties. Interestingly, it was about the same. For both Republican identifiers and democratic identifiers, and then another ten percent. Of respondents who identified as Republican or Democrat, the same percentage in each party said there would be at least a little justification for violence if the other party one. So you've got one in five. Republicans and one in five Democrats who say. in late November and early December of twenty, nineteen and I don't think the number is going to be lower right now. Given everything that's happened. That if the other guy wins, there might be some justification for violence and nine to ten percent. WHO said yeah, there probably be a lot of justification for a violent reaction. Now an percent may not sound like much Rick, but we have two hundred, twenty, five million. Adults in this country and you know my guests is well, you know the numbers probably. Roughly forty million. People who probably identify as Democrats may be another thirty, five, forty, million who identify as. Republicans so we're talking about millions of people who think there would be a lot or a great deal of justification for violence. If the other party wins well, I think it was. I looked it up. I think one hundred and thirty eight million people voted in the two thousand sixteen presidential election, so if you just took it up a percentage of people who voted Thirty something million people. so so to be very clear about this survey. Question was not. Do you think justified to commit violence it was. Would you support violence in theory committed by somebody else, right? It wasn't even that it.

"I think there's different things that we can look at when we look at their engagement though. Wha- Polygon focuses on congressional engagement and so we actually partner with some other civic engagement organizations to get a poll study done from ISP and we found that only seventeen percent of Muslims reached out to their member of Congress in the last year and this was the lowest of all faith groups like by a lot and similarly only twenty percent return to their local of elected officials and so it shows that the bar is low. I tell people the bar is on. The floor didn't go up from here and it's really something that you know. I think we need these numbers to understand. We were now. I think Muslims are better at voting. Arming our voter registration. Numbers are still the lowest of faith where we have a voter registration rate of seventy three percent but those numbers are increasing as well. And we'll soon voter. Turnout is increasing. I think after two thousand sixteen when people saw just how much their apathy cost what it costs. We're literally there. Were states where Muslims didn't turn out enough and they could have switched who the electoral votes went to. Now that's a whole other problem in and of itself but it was a huge wakeup call Muslim so the return on actually jumped dramatically in the twenty eighteen midterm elections and it's continuing to rise. Polygon for instance. We focus a lot on our training so we will go out and train community groups on. How did you a town hall meeting with your member of Congress? How do you do a phone call? How do you do an office visit and we walk people through it and these skills can be transferred to the local level as well? We're continuing to get training requests. We get a lot of training requests because I think people are now Hungary to get their community. Civically engage because they've seen what happens when you don't and as far as whether Muslims are one issue voters. No I do not think so. I know so that they are not one study. Louis started polygon the way that we determine what issues we wanted to work on was by looking at different studies so we will look Assam make. Isp which is the Institute of Social Policy and understanding and they did their Muslim survey. I think that was the two thousand sixteen survey we were looking at and it showed that Muslims care about things that non Muslim Americans care about so the economy jobs housing devil rights and civil liberties national security. And so Paul. Egon has actually focused exclusively on domestic issues so far because those issues do affect Muslims Muslims. Don't just care about foreign policy or they don't care Palestine. The that's a misconception. Yeah care about those things do but in addition they also care a lot about these domestic issues for instance the GOP tax plan that came out and actually largely impacted Muslims in the US and so we were able to come out with a resource that that described that and so I think as people are understanding that an looking more inward and seeing how these domestic issues impact them. They're going to continue to increase. But I think the presidency for sure was a wakeup call. What kind of do now. Are you expecting from Muslims in twenty twenty very very high turnout? I think is like care and I think maybe jet pack and some other organizations did a study after the twenty eighteen one and they said that ninety five percent or really high percentage of Muslims that were registered to vote came out and voted in the midterm elections. And so based on that I would say that it's probably going to be very high but like I said I think after what happened in two thousand sixteen. I think everybody is going to like get up and make sure they vote for presidential and especially because I think just Americans in general vote more in the presidential election and do you see Muslims as like a single wooding block or do you see a lot of diversity in terms of who they support When it comes to different presidential hopefuls. Yeah there is diversity in who they support. I know Muslims that are on several different presidential campaigns all for different candidates and that is how it should be because Muslims are diverse group as we talked about ethnic diversity but they also come from different socio economic backgrounds. They come from different educational backgrounds. They come from different lived experiences. And so anybody who thinks that they can just get little quote unquote Muslim. Vote by saying or doing something is wrong. Muslims care about the issue so you have to get them on the issues now. Obviously if you're going around and saying you want to ban this yeah they're not gonNa vote for you hopefully but otherwise you get them at the issues because that's what they care about. Let me just like any other American. So yeah I mean I have seen people make claims that a for instance like with a twenty sixteen elections. Muslims had voted more but that is That they would have made a difference with which which way the statement but I think that is an extreme example of when you had trump versus like the Democrat candidate but I mean in Texas for Instance Ryan. There are definitely Republican. Muslims there and they are definitely engaged in politics there and it was actually Muslims. Majority Muslims voted for George Bush whenever he was running and so that was a Republican ticket. So it's wonder why yeah. Well he'll go back to figure out. Why diverse on Foreign Policy Front? What concerns you most whether that just gender foreign policy not specific to the STAR The Muslim world? I think the what concerns me. The most right now is is what we talked about with. The this oriental is among the the seeing of looking at the Muslim world through an orientalist lanes American imperialism this lack of regard for human rights for standards for the own treaties and agreements that we have made especially under the trump administration where it seems. His goal is to just undo everything that Obama did. There's a joke Has a mean that's been going around what what is wrong with the Iran? Deal like would. Could you come up with a better deal? Trump's answer is that Obama signed like that's literally what we're seeing and so I think right now we are in a state of chaos. We're in a state of disarray. Where even our normal international norms and agreements are not being adhered to by the United States? So that's I think a different problem on a different level because of trump and even in the Middle East what he's doing just completely changing decades on US foreign policy on Israeli settlements in the West Bay at moving the US embassy. And it's it's just been like just pure chaos taking out under a funding but I think overall I think even before that it was just this less of a reliance on diplomacy and too much militarism that has led to these endless wars that were in that have led to these horrific drone strikes that have killed so many civilians often in Muslim countries and just just complete disregard for the humanity of people that are outside of our borders and particularly among Arabs and Muslims are people with Brown or black skin and that really bothers me because every human being's life is precious and it doesn't matter what country they live in. They should be treated humanely. But in on fairness a lot of these policies were also implemented and affected during Obama Administration specially drone attacks. It was an uptick during his time and there were so many other policies that his administration pursued now that behalf president trump. I think every time we compare the two we are always like no Obama wasn't got or whatever I think we should also look back and see what has been a problem with. Us foreign policy irrespective of wish body is in Paula. And who is in Baba and this date bags like even before nine eleven dehumanization of Muslims or Muslim community Muslim world for that matter has been going on for decades and I and I think we are more aware of it now because it's so mainstream in so in your face but it was always there. Yeah for sure and like I said it was during Obama's time where I became interested in porn policy. You know why were we in the Iraq war and understanding the consequences of our actions their administration officials saying that it was okay that hundreds of thousands of children had died. And of course you know. Everybody should be responsible for actions administration so when I was talking about drones and such on definitely talking about drone strikes under Obama. Big We had the most deportations under Obama as well. You know a lot of these policies that are happening on our southern border. Trump often say well. This is just the same thing that the Obama administration. We're doing it now. So there's like a microscope for sure on the trump administration but yet doesn't let anybody off the hook. Let's talk about something. Sweet you love desserts. We are completely pivoting into something completely different. And I love to say it's too Is there a particular kind of that you like or are you like fond of any dessert? I really love chocolate. I have to eat chocolate every day. Pretty much like if I don't have chocolate I feel like it's missing food group for me. Oh interesting but I. I really really liked chocolates. Anything chocolate related. But Yeah I can be Buji or released simple in my dessert. I love like chocolate chip cookies but then also love like the gourmet chocolate cakes covered with chocolate garage. And just all the decadent stuff. Do you like these Not as much. I'm very particular about the ones that I like. I like bar fee okay. I like some do if it's a good one. And then my mom makes really amazing Golob gentleman and like hers and she has like really great recipe for it and now I understand why I love donuts so much because there are so similar to Golob Johnson and the way that she makes them. Food is such an important way an interesting way of connecting to different cultures right. It's like wherever you go and you travel a lot. You have traveled a lot because of your work do travel like just for work or leisure as Weli or both. I really enjoy just visiting different cultures meeting different people seeing how they live. I think the world is so beautiful and we should try to experience as much of it as we can and I just. I'm really privileged that I get to do it. Do you have a favorite please? Ooh That is really hard. I I mean when you said that. The first thing that came to my mind was Switzerland. Because I was like one of my early travels I did. I think it was like I think over ten years ago so like the first place that I'd gone besides Canada and boxed on. Was this trip that I took to Europe to Switzerland Italy and Spain so I really really loved Spain as well actually because they had this nice marrying of Islamic history with European history and you can see kind of the structures and Ford. Some things that were from the Islamic time there. That was really really cool but yeah I've I've been really privileged to see some beautiful landscapes in Switzerland and Peru and even like the northern parts of box on that. I've been to a really really beautiful and I just wish that I could have seen more of it and spend more time there. It's interesting because I grew up watching Bollywood films. Which make common for any Pakistani? My my exposure to Switzerland comes from all day. There were a lot of furniture Indians and like there were a lot of brown people..

"School really doesn't care what major you choose. And so that's why I was like well. Let's just pick business because business is a good school and you know in case a law. School thing doesn't work out like I can do that. And so from there. I wanted to accounting and I was good at accounting and actually work during accounting for three years after I graduated and then as I mentioned I was doing a lot of civic engagement work on the side and it just got to the point where I was spending all of my spare time doing civic engagement work and I was like okay. I need to go back to this original dream that I had of moving to DC and working in policy. And so you know because my background was in accounting. I realized I needed to go to graduate school and get another master's degree in like had the opportunity to do internships at the United Nations. Which I think they only let students do. So there's a multitude of reasons and my family was supportive of me going to Grad School and and supportive of new pursuing these careers but might add still is like all right. Like you've had fun are you? Are you going to come back to you? Got a great job and so there's always kind of that pressure there but I think if you're focused and you have a vision and you understand and you do have other support around you. You know you stick to it but yeah I definitely not like the. The pressure has gone away. You know what you just mentioned how you chose because you thought it was the practical thing to do and that time right and this is so emblematic of immigrant mindset. I see that with me and I think what we do to our kids because your parents are immigrants. We transmit that notion of practicality right. We want our kids to choose professions. That are more practical and I was talking to my intern the other day and her parents are from Korea. And she she and I would having this discussion about how When immigrants come here the feel ton of emotions bactheatre `isolation. There is some kind of disorientate decisions that they make in. Life are a practical decisions. And then we transmit that to our kids. How much of your parents experiences have? Impacted your choices and career in your personal life. I mean I think my parents experiences as far as like when I got my dad. He was extremely well educated. He had degrees from Pakistan and then he came to the US and got degrees and Masters degrees here as well and so like. That really instilled in me the value of education. My mom also was educated in focused on both. My parents stressed the importance of education. And I think that made me really focus on academics drawing up. And then you know. My Dad out also is an entrepreneur. He has his own business in. That also really influenced me and I think it made me realize that I could start my own initiative which is what I did with polygon so like thinking outside of the box and seeing what is the need it's very much immigration mindset right. They kind of create their own jobs. They make their own destiny. They go for the American dream and so it was a lot of hard work. That was instilled in me from both of my parents and seeing them were card whether it's taking care of their kids or what they're doing with were or making sure that their kids are getting educated in their faith by taking an Friday school so that experience really instilled in me you know good moral values and appreciation for for their background appreciation for the struggle that they did when they came to the US and understanding that. I wanted to move forward and make them proud of what I contributed. I didn't want to just be like a kid who just took advantage of that. Let's talk about your walk. No you have an extensive history of contrbuting two different publications as a writer. As you mentioned. In the beginning it's you've written thought pieces op. Eds and a lot. More in European introducing. Online publications are contributing to elevating the voices of marginalized people. And in. What ways. Have you seen that happen absolutely? I learned very early on in my career that you don't define your own narrative people are more than happy to define it for you. I was seeing that a lot with Muslims and Muslim women in particular as we talked about her. You know people were just make up things about them and say they're oppressed that they didn't have a choice to where your job or that they don't like their faith or whatever whatever they might say in. So I saw myself when I started my religion blog. Part of my goal was to like help bridge a gap that. I saw between my community in Texas. You know growing up as a Texan and then also as a Muslim and in understanding what the the Islam that I lived was not what was being portrayed in the media and wanting to bridge that gap so that blog was all about me defining my own narrative explaining what Assam was to me how I viewed different events and different things that were going on and to share that experience to fight. Disinformation talking about decent formation. Where we see that a lot and since we have you on the show and you'd the expert I share some terms and phrases that I think are extremely problematic and these elite Muslim troops. That are in walked all the time in media everywhere. I want your feedback and your response to what you think are what you make of those terms now. We hear the term moderate Muslim allot right to the point where Muslims have started thinking that they have to use disqualify to justify who they are. What do you think I hate the term with a passion and I'm very familiar with this term. Because when people used to comment on my blog they would say things like that like. We're all the moderate Muslims. Or why aren't you guys protesting terrorism in the streets and I just hated it because it insinuates that a Muslim by definition is not moderate or level. Or however you want to describe moderate nece that they are inherently extreme and in order to qualify yourself or disqualify yourself from that extremism you have to adopt a quote unquote moderate Islam so you can be a moderate Muslim comparisons between terrorist races lone wolf narrative right. That's that's a common additive then we CNN about civilized versus uncivilized world. We see terms like jihadists. It really bothers me am as a human rights activist. It always bothered me and I'm sure you work in. Us Foreign Policy Realm. It probably bothers you a lot as well and I'm sure you see this term used a lot right for sure. What what is your take on it and do you think we need to have a man. Wu or a set of guidelines as to what should not be used to talk about Muslims to represent Islam. Yeah for sure I mean I was so bothered by these terms of jihadists and I actually when I was in graduate school. I took my graduate school. Capstone Project was on Lone Wolf terrorism and I did that with the UN counterterrorism executive director and we studied like a hundred cases of lone wolf terrorism. To understand what motivates them. And of course we found that Islam was not would've eating factor surprise surprise forever. But you know the reason why it's so important to do these types of studies and talk about it is because the data just does not support these types of narratives that we're always hearing about and when you talked about a lot hooper there. We have noticed people. Isp You did. I don't know if it was is p or if somebody was looking at. How often media would when when Ella Hooper was said they would mention it in the headlines that somebody screamed and ran down the street or whatever it was even though the walk was not verified even though they could have said something else even though somebody could have been lying. These are all things that they found out. After the fact they still put it in the title and fuelled this disinformation and it's really terrible because it actually has really dangerous consequences for Muslims or people who appear Muslim in this league going about their daily lives and so I really don't. I don't like the term jihadist because Jihad is not what the term Jihad struggle it. Three Different Ways. You can strike. It could be a spiritual struggle. I mean if you study Assam you will know these things and won another term was a Kia. I remember like blogs. All you're doing on hold up. I grew up Muslim. I've never heard this term in my life. Exac- Oh I have to look up these terms that they were calling me. It was just mind boggling to me that they felt that they had the right to just take words and take my religion and turn it into whatever they wanted and have serious consequences result from that like. That's not okay and so I think it's so important that we call people out when they do engage in these terms and I will tell people in my circle that I'm not okay with words like Jihadist am not okay with calling them the Islamic State Isis. Or Daish I'm not okay with that because you're furthering their narrative and that puts people in danger and it's also wrong. How do people respond to that though? Because I see that in media so regularly and even the kind of media that trust or media outlets that I really trust the use it all the time. So what kind of response do you get when you tell people that? I think people are often curious when I tell them. I know when I've told they're like wait. Why I thought it was okay to say that and I'll explain to them be like would you go up and call somebody a Christianised. When they use the term Islamist like would you call somebody a Christianised? Think about it in the in the context of other religions. And they're so one dimensional when they look at Islam- that they're been allowed to get away with saying these things that it takes an open minded person to like stop and listen and understand so and I think that we have to really change and recreate these narratives and we want people who have each agency specially Muslim women and men who should speak up against all these things. Because what's happening is that all of these troops have become such an integral part of local vernacular unless we change it and we create Counter Narratives right now. I'm reading this book. This book was recommended by a guest. he's a wonderful person similar indeed saying and he talked about this book during our interview. And it's called audience by Edward. Sad and I still need to read that book. Oh my God. It is such an amazing book and it makes so much sense in. What's happening right now? And it is so relevant. And the more I read the more I understand Western psyche and how slim's have always been in a way looked at by western countries from please of dominance and trump lease of being an imperial power. And that's what the dynamic is and that's why the even the language the narratives that we see in cultural and political realms are dictated by that notion of the other. Yeah for sure I I even see it on Capitol Hill. I mean I was taking a course announced that organization that deals with foreign policy came in and just gave a course to staffers and I remember. They were talking about their experience. I don't know if it was in Iraq or Afghanistan and just in passing they mentioned the word infidels. Oh my God sitting there like excuse me did you. Did you really just say that with a serious face? And you're supposed to be a scholar on this on this topic and I was so like what do I do? And I think that's why it's so important that we are in these spaces because we can catch it. And so afterwards on their feedback form I wrote please do not use words like infidel bobick. And you know it's not okay for you to be using that and I think I think that's why I'm saying like it's so important to have Muslims or at least people familiar with Islam veteran newsrooms that are writing these books. That are in the media. They're speaking because they can catch these things and this goes for any diverse community. And it's just it's mind boggling. That people can get away with it. But you're right. It does come from the sense of this Oriental. Ism This imperialism when we look at our. Us foreign policy totally. That explains a lot of US foreign policy and is why I wanted to get involved because I was like. This is just not right in some. American needs to come in and fixing doggy. Roy Moore into. I want to talk a little bit about your organization. It's called Polygon Education Fund. It's a fund which you are President off and in your mission statement. You mentioned the low numbers of political engagement from Muslim community. Now of course that makes sense considering that there is a lot of vilification of Muslims. Muslims are Lisi too. I I will say that I should be more engaged. Yes we have dateable. Pr And we're lazy. And we focus only on being doctors and engineers which needs to change. How do you hope to see levels of engagement within American Muslims increase and using Muslims on one issue constituents?.

"both sides" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show

"This is the country I've served served and defended That all my brothers have served and here right matters. That was lieutenant. Colonel Alexander Van Minh testifying the president's impeachment hearing about the difference between his father Soviet Union and American democracy on Friday vin. Men was fired along with his twin brother and another key impeachment witness ambassador to the EU. Gordon Simul let's discuss Senator Santorum let me start with you. Some Republican senators were urging the president not to fire John Lennon addition. Susan Collins of Maine said that doesn't favor any retaliation but we're clearly seeing some retaliation. We'll look the person has a right to have people around him that are. He's comfortable with and support deportment. Obviously these people have done things to lose the president's faith in them. The person has the right to do these things. Where should I shouldn't have done? That's a question I yes I certainly as a president wouldn't want people around me who don't support what I'm trying to accomplish. And it seems like tickly in the case of Vincent that's the case you know the level of meltdown by Democrats over this. If if Barack Obama had someone in his White House who is leaking to undermine him you and I both know the media would be defending the ouster of this person and before you say will break. Obama would've never done anything like this. Let let let's remember that. The Internal Revenue Service under Barack Obama investigated and targeted conservative tea party groups in the two thousand ten eleven and twelve and stalled getting their five. Oh One C. three status or their Five Oh one C.. Four status. Because They Lois Lerner and others within the IRS believed that they would undermine the president or they would attack the president they would go after the president you have an inspector general saying that the IRS Members of the IRS knowingly ignored the rules of the IRS to engage in partisan retaliation against these groups can you imagine if there was a leaker at the IRS. The media would be encouraging. Barack Obama. Fire that person. The problem boom here is the moral relativism of osage. You know eight. I continue to believe Donald Trump should have never had that phone call The way he had it with Ukraine's president it was bad. Had he not had addity. Would've gotten impeach you know in the same way just exercise a little bit of self control and not fire James Comey. He would've never had the Mueller investigation. Now that being said it's pretty clear that called me was a hack back in should have been fired You Know Hillary Clinton had fire James Comey though the media would have said it was deserved if she were president. And that's part of the problem here. There's a moral relativism. I'm on both sides. Where if our side does it it's virtuous at the other side does it? It's a sin as opposed to saying this is right and this is wrong and if it's right for one side is right for the other side and if it's wrong for once is wrong for the other side but we're not allowed to go there anymore. God help us. We're not allowed to go there. A now you've got the Democrats falling over verbatim selves to say that Donald Trump is a king. He's a dictator at. Its will never be able to remove. I gotta ask just as an aside. How many Democrats crats are going to get to November in? Say Well Guess. I'm not going to go vote. He's a dictator. They told me he's as a king. Now I can't get him out of the office so why bother to go. I mean I. I don't think it's going to be significant numbers but I do wonder to some some degree particularly with the Democratic Milton. Oh we will get to the Democrat. Meltdown that's happening right now over the field my goodness they are in absolute panic mood after the good week. The president had last tweet but no seriously how many people are going to decide that. Oh my goodness gracious This man's dictator now. We're never going to be able to remove off as just throw their hands up in get out of politics. It makes you wonder. Hey listen. I don't think it's going to be a significant number but when you have mainstream in stream media talking heads saying this man is a dictator now. There's nothing we can do. Some people are GONNA lose hope other people. Of course you're going to get violent a a little in Florida in Jacksonville Florida. A blonde haired Blue Eyed Neo Nazi type. Well it would be if he was doing this to Democrats but because he's doing it to Republicans. No no ran a van through a Republican voter registration to if this was just just just. Let's play hypotheticals. Hypothetically Stacey Abrams fair fight does a voter registration. Drive and a blonde blonde haired blue eyed dude in a van runs through the tent. where the doing the voter registration drive? What do you think the media reaction would be how? How many days of coverage would it get but it was a progressive activist who did it to Republicans lukens? So we're not getting a ton of media coverage are we know we're not and we're not because there is is a partisan indifference to these sorts of stories and that partisan difference comes from the fact that they are hypocritical and they give sympathy to the left and they ignore facts. That might embolden people on the right. There is a moral relativism visited both sides. I mean let's be honest. The let's let's flip this over on the other side. If Barack Obama had made a phone call to to Ukraine's president and said investigate Ivanka trump and donald trump. You who are listening right now nodding along with me would be beside yourself with rage and what the president impeached. That's just the reality of it. Each side believes its own side virtuous and the other side vein at fault. But that's not the situation we're dealing clean with right now we we can do all the what about scenarios we need to. That's not the situation we're dealing with right now. We're dealing with the situation of this president and I have said repeatedly he shouldn't should have done that phone call. I don't think it was impeachable but I do think it was wrong and I wouldn't think it was impeachable of Barack. Obama did it but I would continue to think it was wrong but just by virtue of saying it's wrong there will be rally the flag contenders for this president. Who will be outraged with me for saying saying that that it was wrong? He shouldn't have done it And in there will be democratic partisans outraged that I don't think it's impeachable but if the shoe were on the other foot and I said it was wrong. A lot of the Republicans upset with me. I was wrong for the president to do. It would be cheering me on. I said it was wrong for Obama to do it but but excoriating me for not impeachable. We're in an age of more relativism. And there's a lot of nonsense out there in the media of course is so biased in has no sense of history that in your savings. I am old enough to remember Barack Obama telling supporters to take guns tonight fights and the media was comfortable with his rhetoric. I am old old enough to remember. Joe Biden telling black voters that Mitt Romney would put them back in chains in the media. Turn a blind eye. I am old enough to remember. knbr Barack Obama telling Hispanic voters that Republicans were their enemies in the media. Said nothing. I am old enough to remember Barack Doc Obama lying and telling people what they like their doctor they could keep their doctor. And the media defended Him and assailed Sarah Palin for saying it was ally and even politic fact came out and said he was telling the truth and then had his eight with the lie of the year. oops my bad got it wrong. We made the mistake of believing him. The media gave him a pass. I am old enough to remember the Obama Administration Giving guns to Mexicans and fast and furious and getting an American border patrol agent killed. And I'm old enough to remember the Obama administrations. IRS investing in Harassing Tea Party groups. The media turned a blind eye. All of this they gave a pass to all of it and now suddenly they think that Donald Trump is uniquely Khloe. Bad uniquely terrible. His voters are uniquely violent in his rhetoric is uniquely violent because they were sleep for eight years is the only thing I can imagine. It does this so much of the anger and rage about Donald trump firing Alexandrovich Edmund. You and I both know darn well that. If Brock Obama had done that the the media would be given an investment. And that's why I carriage by I don't blame the president for wanting to reassign people he didn't fire him. They reassigned him out of the White House. And I don't blame them for doing so. It is clear that this administration uniquely if there's one unique thing about it has a bunch of holdovers from the Obama Administration careerists who are partisan to lean to the left who hate this president. And what undermining. And he has the right to clean the White House of these people and move them to other places uses and the fact that the media is upset about it is really the media is upset because their sources the leakers are being reassigned..

"ABC's Paula Farris. I'm the host of journeys of faith as you know all too well. We are in an election year so on this season. We're talking to twenty twenty presidential candidates and other political figures about how their your faith and religion influence person and their politics. Before you tell me about your religion for show it to me and how you treat other people you can call a God by many different names but we are worshiping the same God there check out journeys faith wherever you're listening now. I welcome back to powerhouse politics. We gotta go soon because the trial is about about to start again but before we do I gotta ask you because you know one of the great things about the power house politics. podcast is we get The the Political Director Right here I agree. That's one of the the things we ask you about. What's going on so I I've been kind of tied up covering You know the the happenings of the White House in the trial. But I I did notice Hillary Clinton weighed in his. She is she she running again. Or what's what's going on. People people are asking all the time to run if you if you ask her. This is one of those times. Where a lot of folks who questioned Hillary Clinton's political instincts and judgement before or questioning all over again But it's also from the perspective of Hillary the Clinton supporters and I've talked to a lot of them about this look. She's has a right to to to say what's on her mind. She has some very strong opinions about some people who are running for president. She she he said of Bernie Sanders who you know. A guy that I think both of us have known since he was a house member idea. I don't go back to his his days as mayor of Burlington but I go back with him quite a bit and I think what she said is nobody likes him. Nobody likes him and she said he's been he's been in Congress for a long time. Couldn't get anything. Done only had one senate endorsement horseman. Last time around. I think it was Senator Jeff Merkley by the way but nobody. Nobody likes him and she went on to talk about the tactics that some of his online supporters used used. He used the Bernie rose use his anti woman in the context of the alleged comment Between Him and Elizabeth Warren really fascinating comes. She's got a new documentary about her about. Let's come out of who it's reviewing. Its Sundance in the coming weeks. And that's where these comments came out and It's landed like kind of Thud. But but but wait a minute. I want to be clear. I mean obviously if Bernie to win the nomination she'd be all in and fully supporting role interesting that you say that. Because he was asked that so she did an interview with the Hollywood reporter about about that very question and she says she's not ready to go there and associate endorsed well. This created there was an eruption that you saw online and a lot. The former Obama people were saying. Now come on. And ultimately she tweeted a clarification that of course she would endorse. Whoever the Democratic nominee is? But I'll tell Edmund clarifications I always wondered clarification is exactly the opposite of my original statement. Yes she says you always wanted my unvarnished us and I guess she gave them originally but now she's cleaning it up and saying she would support monitoring them a little bit of the opposite of unfurnished. What's fascinating John is a look? This is a time. Normally the Democrats would be at each other's throats ten days before riot for forgotten. But did you know this John. There has not been a single negative ad. Invoking another Democrat in this primary process. There's been lots of anti trump stopped but no democrats on television with an ad saying so and so is bad and I'm good and yet these divisions are coming me out in the most awkward of time the Democrats that are including Bernie Sanders people that are on Capitol Hill now dealing with impeachment wannabe united. They also want to be on united. They WANNA fight each other because they have this big contest coming up But they know that the person who may benefit the most dramatic is the guy. They're trying to get rid of. I don't know how you square that and I don't think that Hillary Clinton adding her voice to the conversation issued by most Democrats as helpful. Now maybe there's some three dimensional chess game where Elizabeth Warren benefits from it awesome. We named the dimension maybe as many dimensions as we have flood runners in this but I this is a this is an awkward time for Democrats. They are literally split between places. Is that the major candidates. They don't know where to be their split between messages. They cannot agree what this primary process is going to be settled on. They can't agree on which candidates will be part of it. They can't agree on weather weather. And when it will end in this case they're re-litigating twenty sixteen and it's wild to look at the in the Senate Chamber you see four Kratz running for president. Let's not forget Bennett Bennett Club. And Santa's are there and their stock unable to speak their mute imprisoned in the Senate for our after our unable to go to Iowa in the lead up to the Caucasus. I mean that is just how does that. How does that affect things associated? There's a tweeting which is like some magical superpower that senators have when they can tweet when they don't have got an update on on how that works but this is not how any of them planned out their last last two weeks of January to cancel rallies cancel events and it's very possible that voters give them a pass for that. But I'll tell you there's a lot of voters that I've talked to in Iowa New Hampshire who were late deciders and they like to meet the candidates and see candidates and they always plan to start seeing candidates when it mattered those last couple of weeks of Iowa. They're not going to be able to see him. Wouldn't you be tempted if you were a a senator. Running is already come out forcefully and repeatedly for the removal of Donald Trump. Or you know exactly how you're gonNA vote. Wouldn't you be tempted to blow it off. Yeah yeah in fact just go to one like I mean y y you know we have to sit there and listen to the you know the chef in secular. How can I mean I mean why? And there was a voter to back in Back in the Clinton Impeachment John. You may remember where there were ninety nine senators President John McCain Cain John McCain McCain's skipped a lot of a lot of days are often ninety nine seats filled and and that was that was a full year out. Remember that was ninety. Nine that was it was was just going to New Hampshire to to to our I. Look I think the it's a bit of a load off I I would take seriously my constitutional wouldn't Ugi. You're gonNA blow that off the seriousness. The democratic process of running for president put up the seriousness of the Iowa. Caucuses I think I think arguably isn't that more important to talk to voters owners and get your you know your message out that. I have not heard a single person that I've talked to with. These campaigns seriously raised that prospect. I think it's a game of chicken. I mean if one went maybe two or three would would feel like. They're they're willing to go but they feel like there's too much downside and I should also add in this age of of of social media. And you could do tele town halls and you can skype or facetime facetime in and you can have surrogates out there. Maybe you're not missing that much but I'll I talked to mayor team about this directly. They are thrilled to be actually in Iowa to be on the front. What page of the newspapers and on television they're where they're on the the best that Amy Klobuchar or Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders can do right? Now is a hit from the Russell Rotunda. You're were one of those guys that have perfect attendance in class. Where you as a matter of fact I did? Yes had you can tell all right we gotta get back back to the trial. That has all the time. We have power politics and I gotta Say I WanNa Thank Trevor Hayes. Things I know he's he's he's very busy this week. He's He's also working on that. Other podcasts. Casts are are are are are are comrade in Arms Brad milkey stark year Excellent podcast by the way So trevor we thank him for doing double duty Avery Miller the entire power politics team.

"The movement Restricted now. I certainly hope that does not stick I have heard some senator saying. Hey I kinda like this Which I said no you don't But it is. It's it's been an interesting Dance because of course there. Are you know very about security concerns but we also want to make sure that we can do our jobs. And then we are allowed to get instant reaction to what's unfolding on the Senate floor and that is one thing it's like doc As as you covered the White House you know one of the you know one of the great symbols of of I think of the First Amendment of even of our democracy I see is that even at the home the resonance of of the President of the United States you got you know grubby reporters who are who are working. You know just twenty thirty yards from from the From the Oval Office I in that briefing room and on Capitol Hill the ability of reporters to go right up to To members of Congress Representative Senators Is One of the. I think one of the great things about that is that is that is the ultimate A symbol of our democracy is those are representatives of the people and you can go up and talk to them so I hope those restrictions are not are not limiting you I have noticed though that you have a very Interesting spot for your live For for your live appearances on world news tonight and On our special reports on Good Morning America well I well in his life yeah and ABC News Live but tell me about that when th that where you are. Because you've got that I think a lot of people don't realize that that is a very cool spot. That hallway shot Do you have a particular world news. It's a great through fair right so we are right on the first floor of the Capitol Actually Little Stairwell right behind me that goes straight up essentially to to the chamber And I get to see just as Roberts walk by every single day on his way in and out of the trial We are on the ground floor so we also get to see some senators yesterday. During those those breaks they were running up and down because right below US happens to be a small cafeteria which you know in those fifteen minute breaks. They're running back and forth. But it means that you do get a chance chance to see people but you also you know I. It's pretty nice to normally. We are not allowed to have cameras in there so it is it is a very cool spot To be hanging out in and to watch all this history unfold. But we'll get to that cafeteria. Mary thank you for joining us.

"Advisor. John Bolton important to hear from John Polson perhaps the witnesses from both the defense the prosecution but a interest in hearing from someone does not make It's up things that commitment to want to hear from a witness and so now the challenge is trying to keep them in line right and so far last night that it's obvious that the Mitch McConnell's got his party united behind him but now he's got to keep them in their corner and that's where you come to what we're seeing now. which is these opening arguments? Because now the Democratic Arctic prosecutors are going to try to spend the next twenty four hours of arguing that they have to just ramp up the pressure to make a compelling case as possible to try and drive a wedge between The President essentially and some of these other members of his own party so Mary we talk a lot about how the Republicans who are speaking taking the president's defense have that audience of one president trump who was travelling during day. One of of the testimony watching some of tweeting the Democrats. It seems to me have an audience of four. They're looking to pick off four Collins Rakowski Romney plus one. Whoever that one might be hard to find who that fourth may be or even getting one two or three which gets to that procedural of kind of half step back by Mitch McConnell Democrats that that I was talking to said we just showed that we can beat McConnell that there is pressure that can build on him? But there's also a theory out there. Mary that McConnell didn't really give that much maybe he was prepared to give that all along long as assigned to the moderates that he knows where his votes are. he's going to be attentive to that every step of the way and he knew he was going to have to give on some small things. Yet you can. You can argue this. This from both sides right Democrats are up. You're saying look yesterday. She is a prelude at shows that we we are able to get concessions out of the Republicans it shows that we may be able to pick off some of these key Republican votes. Where on the other side you could just say or show the Mitch mcconnells? You know willing to meet them in the middle somewhere and he's going to be able to keep their support. Only only time will tell. I think what's GonNa be really interesting what I'M GONNA be watching closely. I is the tone the Democrats are going to have to strike here. They need to not only build a compelling case space but they need to convince these four at least four of them to get on board And they have to be careful to do that while not you know finger-wagging and scolding them for the way that this process has unfolded so far because already you know I've heard from some Republican sources. who weren't too happy with some of the tone last night on the Senate floor? They don't WanNa feel like they're being spoken down to and admonished for the way that this process it plans played out and Democrats have to be careful not to do that especially when they want their support art but you raise a good point. The audience should be the the audience of four at least to get the procedural You know the get the emotions on witnesses is passed but I mean effective. Is it to have the house. Managers basically insulting Senate which happened in much of what they were saying Nadler actually accusing accusing the Republicans in the Senate of being complicit in a cover up you had to repeat his statement the Senate is on trial. I mean you know I mean. You're you're insulting the courts the you're asking to rule in your favor but I want I want to get to Mary about how this will actually unfold. Because I'm still a little confused and I'm hoping I'm hoping that you can can help me figure this out because the resolution governing the the procedures for this trial drafted by Mitch. McConnell says there will be a vote on Whitney you know a vote on whether or not to have witnesses The the first vote will be whether or not to depose as witnesses Issue a subpoena depose witnesses and then only after those witnesses are opposed In other words not enter not on the Senate floor but but elsewhere would there be a vote on whether or not to bring them in his live witnesses in the trial and as as as we all recall in the case of the Clinton trial the with the three witnesses Sidney Blumenthal Betty Currie and Monica Lewinsky were deposed and video clips were played in the presentations by the house managers. They never actually came. Live on the Senate floor but my question to you is how would this unfold old if witnesses are approved. How long would this go? I assume that the depositions would take time. You probably have legal court arguments about about executive if privilege maybe challenges to those subpoenas If there are witnesses that there is a motion to approve the deposition. One of of deposing of witnesses. I mean it seems to me like this trial could actually go on for months. No how long we in for a very very long long-haul if Democrats get what they want Weeks and weeks. It's one of the reasons why Democrats say they've been you know they wanted. All of those amendments Last night it's why they wanted to to get Essentially approval to or agreement to call witnesses on the front end. So they get the ball rolling because if and it is a huge if if but if they are able to muster enough support to call in additional witnesses then you're in for the long haul and by doing this By having the vote lone witnesses by backloading this essentially that you're going to have your opening arguments. Then you're GONNA have up to sixteen hours of questioning from senators. Then you get to. This question of witnesses is there is A. There's an argument made that a lot of senators might be fed up at that point. Let's just get this over with You also have. Let's not forget some other critical things it's happening you know. I've heard there's something going on out in Iowa something like that. There's a state of the Union. That's supposed to be happening so you against February seven something like that. Yeah you get up against tricky calendar Everyone years aware of that Democratic leaders they will argue that this is simply too big and too important an issue to let the political calendar become a factor. But it's tough And if they do get what they want then we are in for a very long slog so if you have the vote to you subpoena these witnesses and then that subpoena is challenged. I would assume then requiring unless you know requiring go to go through the courts like anything else What what happens? Does the impeachment trial. Go on hiatus while that gets worked out or I mean. Do you have any idea the these are these are the I do not have crystal clear answers for you. You'll be here. I actually bought anybody buddy. But I don't but I was just GonNa say but that's because we're in completely uncharted territory. And of course you all know once you're in an impeachment trial everything else. On Capitol Hill comes to a grinding halt right. Unlike the chief justice still is doing a little bit of his day job in the morning before he comes across the street over here to the capital to to preside over the trial senators. There's this is it. This is the only game in town right now and so if you have weeks and weeks and weeks of delay what's going on in the inner up It's really unclear. And it's why y you know if it sounds like we're flying by the seat of our pants up here it's because we are in everybody else's we are very much living kind of hour by hour through a lot of this as we try figure out what this looks like and how. This is all going to unfold and Mary big picture here. I think it's worth remembering what we're arguing about on the floor of the Senate Senate. The Democrats have long since given up the idea of twenty Republicans joining them and actually convicting and removing president trump from office. What this is all about is whether witnesses would be called and not just any witness is who either worked before or currently work for president trump? We're talking about John. Bolton we're talking about Mick Mulvaney the idea that that either of those men or even Rudy Giuliani another person on some of the wishlist would would be willing to throw president trump under the bus and go out there and say yeah he did it and he knew about it and I just I just think that's almost farcical. To Dean was the enforcer for Richard. Okay come on. He was I mean he was. He was the ringleader in some ways of of of it's all happening Watergate and he turned on Nixon so it's not impossible. John Bolton is not John Dean Yanni honey John Dean I hate to break into. Yes just just Mary. It feels it feels to me like they are they. They don't have much else to go on the Democrats right now as this process plays out but these are these are kind of kind of small goals to have in the midst of an impeachment process that you hope that you're going to get testimony for people that are pretty loyal to president trump. Yes and NO I. I mean no one's under the illusion that the that Donald Trump is going to be removed from office at the end of this impeachment. Trial and Democrats know that that as you say is no longer the goal the goal is to essentially really do a full airing of all of the information available and John Bolton. It's why you've seen most attention focused on him. Look Mick Mulvaney I mean Giancarl can attest is better than anyone is. Is Not going to flip on the president. But John Bolton left under bad terms his team has made it clear he has more to say We don't know what that is But he's writing a book We know that there is more to that story but really this is about for Democrats making sure that Americans they feel has the full picture and are fully aware aware of all of the evidence all of the testimony of everything out there when they head into a ballot box in eleven months or Mary. We know you have to go and and we've already taken up too much of your time. You are by far the hardest working person right now certainly at ABC but but but Among them on Capitol Hill. But before you go oh I just Want to ask you. There's been a lot of back and forth about the rules governing The work of journalists on Capitol Hill all during this trial limitations placed on where you can go. You know what what you can do. Can you give me a give me a rundown of of of what is played lead out and and and and the restrictions that have been That have been put on. What you're doing? Our movements are definitely much more restricted. There's a lot more velvet rope up here right now than there is on a normal normal day. There's also a massive security presence now. A lot of that comes with the chief justice but it is astounding How many layers of security there are up here and how we are being limited normally as you both well know you can pretty much walk straight up to the Senate floor? You can't go on the floor but you can come stand right outside those doors to catch senators as they come in and out out. We're limited in that ability right now. We also you know can't be kind of chasing them through the subway in the same way that we use to and we can't broadcast from all from the same areas where normally can so we are being kept in certain areas and.

"Powerhouse politics. I'm ABC News. Chief White House correspondent bombing Jonathan Karl. ABC This director recline Rick. We are in the thick of it. Can you say the word Saint Impeachment. No No What the H Word Historian Aura historic wrong word queuing up here? I mean look first of all and I'm not talking about historic because we have Obviously the third ever ever Senate impeachment trial of president. I'm talking historic because at this moment in time. We have Mary. Bruce joining us on the powerhouse politics podcasts live. Live Mary Bruce Gang did you sleep there. Did you have a Senate that the little booth that we work out of here in the Senate is quite cozy cozy. uh-huh yeah yeah so anybody who has watched any of this Process at all. I'm talking back to it to the house proceedings. Anybody who's been watching. ABC News knows that. Mary Bruce has been on the frontline of this story. Frontlines and has just been first of all working absolutely Salihi around the clock but nailing it every single day some Mary. Thank you for taking a few minutes talk to us. This is Ben unbelievable so just to bring everybody up to speed. I'm sure most of our listeners were Were listening until two. AM as the as the debate over. Procedures Wha what was unfolding on the Senate floor up but just to bring everybody up to speed the There were some minor concessions made at the beginning of this impeachment Really I mean before. Even the formal kickoff the trial from Mitch McConnell on how at one fold I say minor because they're binary yeah You know the this will go on. Oh arguments will go on for three days instead of two days. It's still going to be twenty four hours of arguments. This means Mary Bruce. I get to sleep a little bit more. Basically the biggest Implication I saw out of that and the evidence will be introduced at the start. Instead of requiring a vote evidence that by the way was being photocopied and distributed every senator anyway in his also already part of the of the record. Now so I don't think these are dramatic changes but we had those changes But to me the biggest story was what. We're GONNA play right now. Which is chief justice? John Roberts the chief justice of the Supreme Court presiding over this actually had to it Monash the Republicans and the Democrats the White House and the house. Managers take a listen. I think it is appropriate appropriate at this point for me to admonish Both the house managers and the President's Council in equal terms to remember that they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body. One reason it has earned that title is because its members avoid speaking speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil discourse but I do think those addressing the Senate should remember where they are an in Mary. The interesting thing here just so everybody you know is clear. This was an admonishment. Not of the senators because they're silent. This wasn't admonishment of the House. Managers managers in the White House lawyers. came at what about midnight. Yeah no surprise here. patients runs a little thin around midnight. When you're you know now when you've already been debating for some eleven hours and you still have more to go? And and we did see a lot of fireworks and frustration and fury on the Senate Senate floor and Roberts speaking out because jerrold Nadler Chairman Gerald. Now they're one of the house managers and the president's Defense Team PAT's Baloney. We're getting a little feisty thought and were speaking out of turn essentially they were not upholding the decorum of the Senate floor and that just goes to show how all fierce the debate is and let's just remind everyone we're not debating the substance at this point. They're simply debating the rules here. This was a intense debate over. How how this trial is going to unfold? Specifically over the question of witnesses and whether they're going to call in any additional witnesses and permit any new documents to be considered all of these witnesses witnesses and documents which the White House has been withholding in refusing to allow speak throughout this process We saw over and over and over again. Democrats through eleven. Different amendments trying to change changed the rules to allow this new evidence to be considered at this point at the beginning of the trial and each one failed. And that's because Mitch McConnell has his party united behind his timeline right now but just astonishing that you're not even through the first day and already I mean once is calling the other side a liar. The other one accusing using the other side of you know disgracing the constitution. And we're not even twenty four hours and that that's just hit Mary. So I I heard the chief justice say that and he called it. The world's world's greatest deliberative body and I'm wondering. Can you confirm that. Where the heck was he was? He actually in the Senate that you can use a lot of words to describe the Senate yesterday and through this this process but greatest deliberative would not be things that are top of mind for me. Mary these guys. They flat out like each other. They really don't like each other. And of course yesterday day was the first time that you've had the democratic house managers these democratic prosecutors essentially coming face to face with the president's defense team and remember it's not just that they're all of a sudden are at odds have been at odds with each other for months. I mean these are the people who you know chairmanship. And now they've been demanding information from the White House and now all sitting just on the other side just feet away are the the president's lawyers who have been saying no who have been sort of turning down a lot of these requests and so they have been at odds for weeks and weeks and weeks and now here they are finally that big moment and it really erupted one other tidbit which I find fascinating this morning Senator Susan Collins was. I'd on the floor yesterday. Her Day right before this moment passing note that then made its way up to the Diet and it seems that the Senator Collins was actually the one who pointed out that things are getting a little out of hand to the chief justice now. We asked her about that this morning. And she sort of with a little Lincoln and onset me. I did that Yeah she did and I remember Susan. Collins of course is the one who We raised a lot of concerns about the original resolution. The original rules governing in this trial. That quickly forced Mitch McConnell to change the timeline into to allow the admission of the evidence that was gathered in the House investigation. So this morning you know Susan Susan Collins It's really certainly seems to have her hands at the wheel here of this trial. You know there is a bottom line though as as we look at this first marathon fondue day not a single republican defection. Perhaps Susan Collins might have encouraged a you know a on one hand on the other hand admonishment from the chief justice but all of these Democratic motions have gone down and and write me. There wasn't a single Republican defection on a a single one of them. No and this is why Mitch McConnell you know is very good at sort of using his power here in the Senate right. He's using that power to shape. What this trial looks like? Like any new going into this that he had enough Republicans on board with his current time. Line to be able to press ahead with this plan Now there are. Of course there's been much discussion Russian about these key. Moderate Republicans who have said that they are interested in hearing from some witnesses down the road. You Know Mitt. Romney has said point blank. He'd like to hear from the former National Security.
