"You have to know what conditions are going to be driving in whether or not going to be late news radio 8 40 W H A s 7 46 NewsRadio 8 40 W h A s interesting Take yesterday that came out of Bill Cosby, who is now out of prison, so called America's dad. Walked out of Pennsylvania State prison yesterday after his sexual assault conviction was overturned. Cosby called ABC News to say the stories about him did not match The truth and nobody had defense to say Wait one second. This doesn't match up with the truth. Just not what I was taught in college. This is not what I was part of a whole. That's Bill Cosby yesterday 83 years old. He had served more than two years of a 3 to 10 year sentence at a state prison for the 2004 assault of Andrea Constant. As for the conviction, the state Supreme Court overturned in now because Cosby was emitted but because of legal technicalities, well, one of those legal technicalities, according to United Press International is that he had agreed if you go back to forfeit his fifth Amendment right against self incrimination, giving a deposition for four days this was back when criminal charges were filed in 2015. That's when prosecutor Kevin are still took over. Back in 2015 Steel said he was disappointed Cosby now goes free on a procedural issue that is irrelevant to the facts of the crime. But it was steel who cut a deal. With? Well, Actually, it was Bruce Castor, who cut a deal and there was brought to steal to take over the prosecution. What happened? There was former Montgomery County prosecutor Bruce Castor. I promised Qazi. He wouldn't criminally be prosecuting himself if the actor agreed to testify in constant civil lawsuit through in 2005, and then still takes up the case. Tries to use that information that Cosby testified about Against him and the Supreme Court ruled. No. You can't do that. What's weird about this to me is I mean, obviously, unless you follow this Case. Byline by byline. Um and you know, and every part of sourcing there. You probably didn't realize that I didn't know that either and how this got that part of the prosecution based on an agreement from the former prosecutor that said he wouldn't be indicted for these things. It's kind of it's kind of crazy right now, so we'll see what happens. I'll tell you who's not giving up. Remember attorney Gloria Allred? She says she's not through pursuing justice for Bill Cosby's accusers, despite that state court ruling, which overturned his conviction conviction for that 2004 sexual assault, and even though the court did Overturn the conviction. It was on technical grounds. It did not vindicate Bill Cosby's conduct. Apparently, she believes she can drag Cosby back to court and can once again get him to testify under oath. Court stayed the taking of his deposition until such time as his criminal case concluded, which it did today. And this all Red says that Bill Cosby will not be able to decline her questions because of an upcoming deposition in a civil case anyway..

"From Robert Show. Thank you so much for being here. Jamie Markley. David Van Camp start Robbins. She's sitting there blaming me. Well, Bill Cosby's in the news. Holy Smoke Man who saw this one coming, huh? Cosby's walking out of prison. He's walked out of prison. He's gone. Uh, okay. So the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has decided to overturn the conviction for sexual assault of Bill Cosby. Wow. How much money do you think it will cost to fix this one? It's interesting because because that actually has something to do with it. So there were a couple of issues that that the court Had a problem with one was allowing women who are not directly involved in the complaint that was being tried to testify. So they brought in other people. And they say, Well, that kind of just amounts to Character assassination rather than actually determining a pattern of sexual abuse or misconduct, Right? Oh, shit, kind of pushy. All right, no more. But the bigger one. The real thing that is leading Bill Cosby to be out of prison. What, eight years early? Back in 2004. The Montgomery County D. A. Bruce Castor declined to prosecute Bill Cosby. And he said, Well, that's because I want the accuser to have some level of justice in the form of a civil suit, okay? Okay, So this is not that was not a criminal proceeding because the D A said, Well, I'm not going to go after him for that. But you can take him. You can sue him basically. By doing that, though, Bill Cosby had to give testimony and that testimony in a civil case. Did not leave him protected by 50 men privilege against self incrimination. So in other words, he didn't have the right to plead the fifth because this wasn't a criminal case. So in four depositions, he made several incriminating statements knowing that prosecutors were not going to go after him if he said them if he said this Okay, so when prosecutors decided to go after him now they used that testimony against him in a criminal trial. So, the court says, you know, Cosby only made incriminating statements because a previous prosecutor said it wouldn't be used against him in court. Therefore, You cannot actually use that as evidence that led to his conviction. Essentially, that was a massive, massive ride on the whoopsie go around on the part of prosecutors in Pennsylvania. Okay, Help me understand this. Is there something I'm not getting? If your Bill Cosby's defense, you know this right, so this came up before, but it just went nowhere. Well, well, they were arguing, and this was a big argument about whether or not the statements and in these depositions could be used against him. One of the things that they were fighting for to get this conviction overturned again. This is not actually about whether or not he did what he was accused of doing. I think it certainly appears that he did right, right. This is about the procedural moves made by prosecutors in trying this case. So it's so so basically victims, man, So basically, they say, Okay, well, we have these statements from depositions from whatever it was at the time 15 years ago, and we're going to use this as evidence against him. However, he only made those statements Because the prosecutor at the time was not going to file criminal charges against him. He didn't think that that could be used against him. So he went ahead and and and admitted to things that he wouldn't otherwise have admitted to. Okay. And now it's prediction time. How long before someone has the hot take. The whole reason he was in jail. This long was because of the color of his skin. I may have already happened. Oh, I think it has happened. What's the guy's name? Is it Wyatt? Um, these defend his his lawyer, not his lawyer, but his spokesperson. Whoever that was was with the blue suit on was out there waving his arms and, Yeah, Cosby and you know they I mean, they've been arguing that Yeah, he was. He's been the victim of systemic racism. You're talking about? Maybe from national Melo it Oh, no, no, I don't think so. You don't know I don't Bill Cosby would speak in terms of Let's just say conservatism at times. Yeah. That a lot of people in the black community did not like Because he was very much like you're acting like fools. Pull up your pants Stop breaking the law. Mean I'm paraphrasing all this, but that was sort of the message. You know, we as a people are shooting ourselves in the foot. And there were a lot of people saying, Bill, You need to shut up. So it was this weird thing when he was first accused. There were a lot of conservatives defending Bill Cosby. Yeah, at the time. Saying, I don't know. It's just some woman saying something we don't really know. And then there was more and more evidence. It seemed like there was no one defending him. I don't know that all of a sudden you have you know the woke crowd. Welcoming Bill Cosby with open arms I That would be hard to see. I don't know. But who knows her boyfriend? Okay, that's enough. Okay, look, if you are invited to Bill Cosby's prison release party Make your own drinks. All right, that's all I'll say. That would where they were holding him. They were like walking him through. So I think he is almost blind. I had heard that before. Yeah. Oh, yeah. He's not in good health. No. Well, and people were like, really. We didn't know this before. But all of a sudden he's going to court and he's got the walking stick. It's like how much of this is for effect, right? You've seen this before? Well, yeah, right. All right. Switching gears.

"Afternoon News, Kitty O'Neil. Federal money is coming to Sacramento to widen Interstate 80. It's an $86 million federal grant to expand the lanes between Davis and downtown Sacramento, and officials say that 17 Miles section of the road will have what they call a managed lane that could be like the fast track lanes in the Bay Area. Going in depth here. Bill Cosby released from a Pennsylvania state prison today after a sexual assault conviction was overturned now former Pennsylvania D. A. Bruce Castor told Cosby he would not charge him criminally. If Cosby gave a deposition during a 2014 civil case, and at the time of his trial in 2017 and 18, Cosby's lawyers argued that the case should be thrown out because of that agreement. But the trial judge allowed prosecutors to proceed anyway. KPK legal analyst Bill Portanova gives deeper insight into the case. A little bit of investigating, however, reveals that the trial judge who decided not to believe the former district attorney when he testified that he had promised not to prosecute. That judge and that former district attorney were bitter political rivals who had had a years long, bitter running feud. And there are some who suggest that that had something to do with the judge's decision because the Supreme Court is now saying that Judge's decision was wrong, But life is never that simple. The bottom line is some people think a handshake promise is not worth it. I think 10 years later, they're wrong. In the world of criminal law, A handshake agreement with a prosecutor is binding until death. And one of the great experiences I've had practicing in Sacramento County, Sacramento Federal court all over this area is that prosecutors and defense attorneys Shake hands on a deal, and it is locked as if it is written in blood. There's frequently no writings that prosecutors and defense attorneys will talk to each other five years later and remember the same conversation. Exactly the same way. That's really the fuel that lets the criminal justice system work. People have to have credibility, and their word has to be binding, and the judge who tried Bill Cosby did not on or the handshake agreement. He acted as if the former district attorney had made this story up. Despite evidence to the contrary, and that decision has now been found out to have been dead wrong. Portanova says the trial never should have happened. He should not have been charged because he had already been promised not to be charged. And in reliance on that promise he had testified in a civil case and then in the new when they did try him here. They went ahead and used that testimony that he only gave in the civil case in reliance on a promise not to be prosecuted, so it really was fundamentally unfair. Guilty or not, People deserve fair treatment. This has nothing to do with Bill Cosby Guilt or innocence or the fear nous to the women who were potentially victimized by him over those years. This has to do with the fundamental fairness of the criminal justice system. And whether we can rely on the handshake testimony of a prosecutor today. Tomorrow 10 years from now in Sacramento County. The answer is yes. And has always been yes, we can. Apparently in Pennsylvania. They didn't have things quite so clearly sort about. Attorney bill Putting over there.

That's terrible, and it's selfish and it's stupid, but It's not that I'm relishing in the fact that this is a big scandal for him. Just in general. It's just that he's so obnoxious and he so preachy that it just makes it It does make like I said to someone in my being too harsh on Bruce Springsteen, and they said, Well, He was being mean by doing that.

The only problem with these two guys The other thing that the president Trump Donald Trump has to worry about is local prosecutors charge him. Let's say, Letitia James Judd decides come after, or Cy Vance. The D a in my head that some people are worried that the weakness of these lawyers might encourage these prosecutors when they see how weak the legal team is. That might encourage them. You know, they're not sure if you're gonna bring the case they see bad lording like this, But you gotta remember it's different in a case like that. It's a criminal case, and criminal lawyers are different on a lot of people don't want to work for Donald Trump didn't want to get involved, but criminal lawyers work for anybody. I'll chop o the mob you You pay the money. The criminal lawyer is there, so just just remember that it won't be. Although Bruce Castor might be effective in a criminal court, you know, with your laughing but Let him talk for now, when you look over at the jury, listen, you know, I was watching a lot of shows listening they had shown on the attorney, but it Z tells you everything. Every show. I watch. Nobody had Bruce Castor on there was nobody said Get that guy on the show. We gotta have a great book him for tonight. No, nobody booked him. So, uh, the other thing was a lot of video is used. That's really where they tried to make the case and it was very doctored Video. Like what? The president. They showed just the worst part. What was that line about? Go fight and fight and they didn't show the line about go protest peacefully. They didn't do any of that. They let they doctored that out, And then they picked out of the three hours like two minutes of the what looked like the most violent stuff. Leaving out the other stuff where most of it was peaceful. Remember 125 far more violent riots every reporter would say what was mostly peaceful, mostly peaceful but didn't get any of that with this, so they, But here's the bottom line of all this. There were only five Republicans. Last week, voting against President Trump. After all of this yesterday, six voted so they picked up one vote. So for all of this Raskin with his box of Kleenex And the doctored video. All they got was one more of senators. This cannot Be our future. Oh, This cannot be the future of America. We cannot have president ago. He's appealing to the heart and emotion. Chuck Schumer. Patrick Lee of these good bottom line on the whole impeachment thing. There's no judge. It's supposed to be chief Justice Roberts Bottom line. He refused to come to this, he said. I will not get the actually told them. I'm not getting involved in this. He doesn't consider to real impeachment. So you shouldn't either. But how long's this go the rest of the week, at least, possibly Monday's a holiday that will get they would do it on Monday, though, right and there's even talk to me go through the weekend. Yeah, I don't know what Monday's a holiday that I don't know. Is that the President's day? Yeah, Well, yes. True, Yeah. Yes. Oh, well, you know, way might work on a holiday, but, uh, things that politicians anything Ann Arbor Day They're off anything. They could take a holiday, So we'll see what happens. Um, the original wanted shown is an Orthodox Jew, so he wanted Do not do this on Friday or Saturday, but he's conceded that point the work. That's why I kept remembering every time it drank water. He put his hand over his head. Right, right. Yeah, that's part of the religion of unorthodox. Do you cover your head whenever you're drinking or eating, So that's what although he seemed to drink a lot of water, what was going on there? Even he's nervous, Nervous. Even. He was like passing out during all of this stuff, so well, it'll continue today. Love to check the ratings yesterday might have been okay. But this is another good thing After Bruce Castor, he may have brought the ratings down 50% on this whole thing. So we got lots to get to. Hey, What was that Pulley head is Assad Bey Pole? Yeah, they don't like Cuomo. Right? So, you know, that's the problem. Cuomo, obviously just in the actual bottom line Metrics worst governor ever in history, But people are starting to realize that what was the number he was 40% would recall him. From office if they were allowed to do it. Wow. Remember, most polls are slanted because they over sample Democrats under sample Republicans. So in a poll when it's 40%, it's really 50%. So that's pretty good. You can't recall the governor. It's not like California, where they're pretty close to having enough signatures to recall their governor. There's no mechanism in New York state for a petition or anything like that. The only way You can get rid of the governor of the state Supreme Court can remove him, but that's Albany. That's a real real swamp of Democrats. I don't I don't know if they'll do it, but Cuomo slipping in the polls. Theo only thing helping him in the polls. He's killed a lot of people. 12 actually 15,000 seniors, and he's got about almost a million people moving out of the state and leaving. So those who those would have been people voting against the bitter no longer around so He said that he has helped himself a little so figure. They've been another 10% if he didn't chase all those people out of New York. Hey, check out the Web based on a lot of good stuff up there..

Jordy later we're debating a step that has never been taken in American history. Moments of January 6th, including moments from the C span video library portion of a 13 minute video by the House impeachment managers. Then they presented their case against the former president. Here's Colorado congressman Jonah Goose. I have explained in great detail. The many reasons why the argument that President Trump advocates for here today is wrong. I just want to close with the note about why it's dangerous. Lead manager Raskin explained that impeachment exists to protect the American people from officials. Who abused their powerful who betrayed him. It exists for a case just like this one. Honestly, it is hard to imagine a clearer example of how a president could abuse his office, inciting violence against a co equal branch of government while seeking to remain in power after losing an election. Sitting back and watching it unfold. We all know the consequences. Like every one of you. I was in the capital on January 6th. I was on the floor with lead manager Ask it like every one of you. I was evacuated as this violent mob stormed the capital's gates. What you experienced that day what we experienced that day. What our country experienced that day is the framers. Worst nightmare. Come to life. Presidents can't inflame insurrection. In their final weeks and then walk away like nothing happened. And yet that is the rule that President Trump asks you to adopt. I urge you we urge you to decline his request to vindicate the Constitution to let us try this case. That from Congressman Jonah Goose and again the Senate by a vote of 56 to 44, with six Republicans siding with the Democrats, saying, In fact, it is constitutional to try a former president. There was also an emotional moment from that lead House impeachment manager, Maryland Democrat Jamie Raskin, he recalled, assuring his daughter Tabatha and Senate law Hank that it would be safe to watch the House count The electoral college votes on January 26 congressmen Raskin, saying that his family watch the proceedings from the balcony of Of the chamber before returning to an office where they had barricaded the door. We should point out just one day earlier, the congressman buried his son, Tommy, who died of suicide. Here's what happened. And when they were finally rescued over an hour later by Capitol officers and we were together, I hugged them, and I apologize. And I told my daughter Tabatha, who's 24, a brilliant algebra teacher and teach for America. Now. I told her how sorry I was. And I promised her that it would not be like this again. The next time she came back to the capital with me and you know what she said. She said, Dad, I don't want to come back to the Catholic of all. Terrible, brutal things I saw and I heard on that day, And since then that one hit me the hardest that and watching someone using American flag pole. The flag still on it to spear and pummel one of our police officers ruthlessly mercilessly tortured by a pole. With a flag on it that he was defending with his very life from the center chamber of Congressman Jamie Raskin with his own account of the events on January 6th. We have posted that moment. And, of course, all of today's proceedings on our website at sea spend or g'kar. Meanwhile, the president's lawyers rebutting the House managers stating that Donald Trump was quote horrified by the Capitol attack, and attorney Bruce Castor, saying that the reason for this trial is obvious. I was struck, I thought be the day. House managers who spoke earlier were brilliant speakers and I made some notes and they'll hear about what I think about some of the things they said later, when I'm closing the case. I thought they were brilliant speakers. I loved listening to him. They're smart fellas. Why are the House managers afraid? And why is the majority of the House of representatives afraid of the American people? I mean, let's understand why we are really here. We are really here because the majority in the House of Representatives does not want to face Donald Trump as a political rival in the future. That's the real reason we're here. That's why they Have to get over the jurisdictional hurdle, which they can't get over. But that's why they have to get over that in order to get to the part of the Constitution that allows removal, so that's the nobody says it that plainly but unfortunately, I have a way of speaking that way. And the reason that I'm having trouble with the with the argument is the American people just spoke. And they just changed administrations. So in the light, most favorable to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle here, their system works. The people are smart enough in the light, most favorable to them. They're smart enough to pick a new administration if they don't like the old one, and they just did, And he's down there Pennsylvania Avenue now probably wondering how come none of my stuff is happening up at the Capitol. Why? Why do you members of the House of Representatives? The majority of the House of Representatives? Why are they afraid of the very people that sent them to do this job?.

Senate Votes to Move Ahead With Impeachment Trial
"The senate voted fifty six to forty four today to proceed with the historic second impeachment trial of former president. Donald trump the first day of the senate. Trial was focused on whether it was constitutional. Try a former president with both sides laying out their arguments. Democrats kicked off their time by showing a harrowing video of the capital riot that appeared to chronicle events of january six from trump's speech through the siege and trump's video message to riders calling on them to go home while still claiming. The election was fraudulent. Lead impeachment manager democratic congressman. Jamie raskin of maryland pushed back against the idea. That trump can't be convicted because the event took place right before he left office. This cannot be the future of america. We cannot have president's inciting and mobilizing mob violence against our government and our institutions because they refuse to accept the will of the people under the constitution of the united states much less. Can we create a new january exception. Our precious beloved constitution that prior generations have died for and fought for so the corrupt presidents have several weeks to get away with whatever it is they wanted to. History does not support a january exception in any way. So why would we invent one for the future. Our politics reporter allies collins so the democrats came in very prepared of course all of the impeachment managers were there on january six. They experienced it. They had a video with very graphic footage of what happened. And i think even afterwards on the break some senators were saying you know senators. Who don't believe that it's constitutional to have the trial where saying that. That democratic impeachment managers did a very good job. And so i think when trump's lawyers took over they had to rejig a little bit and bruce castor was his first lawyer who spoke. Who gave this sort of mishmash of ideas for the first thirty minutes touching on a whole bunch of things and was very complimentary of listening to the democrats speak before getting to what his argument was which was that he felt democrats. Were afraid to run against former president trump in two thousand twenty four. We are really here because the majority in the house of representatives does not want to face donald trump as a political rival in the future. That's the real reason we're here. That's why they have to get over the jurisdictional hurdle which they can't get over but that's why they had to get over that in order to get to the part of the constitution that allows removal.

"This is the guy Gordon Show on news Talk 7 60 wjr. So the argument of the day is whether or not this is a constitutional exercise. Whether or not you can impeach a former president. How can you remove someone from the job? Who has already been removed by the voters. It's a strong argument. You heard Paul Larkin. Make that he says. We may have done it in Britain. And yes, the founding fathers did lend some credence to it by putting the notion of what they call a late impeachment. The prospect is in there, but he said, When you read the context of the Constitution, it makes it clear that there is nothing in there that calls for The impeachment of a former president. Therefore, you can't do it. Jamie Raskin, who is the lead prosecutor for lack of a better word on part of the House impeachment managers. Says, But that creates a perverse incentive. That proved creates the idea that in the waning days and hours of a president's term, he could go rogue and would be Held to know standard at all. There would be no political penalty to be paid for that, including disqualification cut 13. Their argument is that if you committed an impeachable offense in your last few weeks in office, you do it with constitutional impunity. You get away with it. It's an invitation to the president to take his best shot at anything he may want to do on his way out the door, including using violent means to lock that door. Hang on to the Oval Office at all costs and to block the peaceful transfer of power. Raskin and his house impeachment manner.

"On Am 9 70. The answer out of Chicago. Tell us about Bruce Castor and what kind of approach we could expect from him in concert with his colleagues in defense of President Trump. Bruce Castor made his reputation as the district attorney of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. He was a very effective prosecutor. Real real tough on crime kind of guy. He's a bit of the hammerhead. My friends who tried cases against him say that Is decent when presenting the facts in the relatively simple, straightforward crime, such as murder or something like that, But he's no huge legal scholar. I don't see that, by the way is an impediment is doing an effective job for the president in this cup upcoming show trial. But that's pretty much my thumbnail sketch of Bruce Castor. He's a tough guy. He's got courage, but he's no great legal mind. So it will just be blocking and tackling which, when you're talking about an article of impeachment based on incitement to riot, and, uh and, uh, You know, you can just block and tackle to dispatch with that case, and in point of fact, one might even argue that they should rest their case before they open it. And just call the question. Well, the it's pretty clear from the vote that Rand Paul's forced to the You've got 45 Republicans who are ready to say there shouldn't even be a trial. Because it's unconstitutional to impeach a civilian or someone who's no under holding office. So you start out with a safety net. But if if I was Trump And we're so I was representing Trump. I should say. I wouldn't want to. Go all out in attacking the article of impeachment that says that Trump lied about how the election was conducted. And that was part of the incitement for the mob to have that incursion on Capitol Hill. You would you would you would, you would raise the issue of election front. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's good cop has been unable to get any court in the country to listen to the evidence. You know, everybody says Well, where's the evidence? Where is the evidence? Courts of rejected these claims all over the country. No court is ever adjudicated the issue. They've all taken a Dodge. No, they said, Well, you work standing, You know, it's it's Tuesday and should have filed this on the Thursday. I mean, all the usual nonsense. The courts news to avoid having to take on difficult cases. So here, Thanks to this article of impeachment, Trump has been offered an opportunity to come forward with all of the evidence of fraud and trust me, there's a ton of evidence of fraud, especially in Pennsylvania. Um, And this is his chance. This is his chance to get it out there Now. You're not gonna have a real judge presiding over this. I mean, the last room or was it was going to be Patrick Lazy. The Democrats senator from Vermont. Who is you know who is hardly going to be spared impartial and he may rule all of that evidence out of order. But I think Trump and his lawyers need to go right in and hit it head on. This is their chance. This is their opportunity to make their case. And the best descends in any criminal case is a good offense. I've always contended that that's how I tried my criminal cases. You go at the other side and you go right for the throat. But, Mr Perry, you realize that that's the reason why his former lawyers and they parted ways because they didn't want to, You know, re litigate election fraud. They wanted to concentrate on the charge, which you know incitement of violence or incitement to riot. Yeah, that's that's why Trump had to go this far down in the food chain to come up with the former District attorney from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to find a lawyer. It would be willing to do it. There are 435 seats in the House of Representatives from the inner city to remote regions from Alaska to Florida.

"And how are they shaping their defense? Will trump's to new lawyers are David shown, and Bruce Castor Jr And what they say in their filing is that the proceedings against Trump are unconstitutional because he is no longer in office. They say the Constitution requires that person be in office to be impeached and tried before the Senate and since Trump is clearly out of office. This trial, in their view is is moot. Now there is a legal debate on this point. Scholars do come down on both sides of the question. The House managers for their part in their case argued that this is indeed constitutional and that a president Has to be held accountable for his actions from the first day to the last day of his presidency. They say there is no January exception. But what maybe more pertinent here is that the constitutionality argument Seems like something that's registering with a lot of Senate Republicans since 45 of them voted last week that impeaching a former president was in their view. Unconstitutional. Yeah, that's politically pertinent, although of course there's also this president, where a former official was, in fact, put on trial before the Senate in in the past, so we know what the facts of the president Are there. How is the former president dealing with the big lie here? Everything that, he said, falsely for months leading up to the January 6 attack. His lawyers brought up his Trump's election fraud claims, But I wouldn't say that they focused on them. What they say is that when Trump publicly was challenging the election outcome that he is within his rights to do so that he was just expressing his opinion. They also argue that there's insufficient evidence to conclude that Trump's claims of fraud or false now his lawyers gloss over the fact that dozens of courts had rejected the Trump campaign's legal challenges to the vote instead. His lawyers spend their time in their brief denying allegations against their client. They deny that trump inside of the mob. They deny that he violated his oath of office, and they deny that he committed any sort of high crimes or misdemeanors. So what happens before the trial begins next week? Well, we expect a full trial brief from Trump's legal team by next Monday. And of course, we will keep an eye out to see whether any Republicans start to perhaps Waver on supporting Trump. And, of course, a bunch of Republicans would have to vote to convict for there to be a conviction. NPR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas. Thanks thank you. U.

S should or even can do. The Biden administration is reviewing its approach to Russia. Here's NPR's Michele Kelemen. At his first daily briefing at the State Department spokesperson, Ned Price made clear that he and his staff want to be on their toes, not on their heels. So they were quick with a statement calling on Russia to free Aleksei Navalny. We're going to look very carefully at the deteriorating human rights situation in Russia. What has happened with Mr Navalny specifically what has happened with the mass detentions of those who have bravely taken to the streets. In the aftermath of Mr Navalny's arrest, Navalny supporters have sent the Biden administration a list of Russian officials that they think should face sanctions. The Atlantic Council's Dan Freed, who used to work on sanctions policy at the State Department, says that's one place to begin. The fastest way to respond is to go after Individuals who were in Putin's corrupt circle or their Children who have gotten rich because their Children of members of Putin's corrupt inner circle and that would be appropriate Given that Navalny himself is an anti corruption activist Freed, says he thinks the Biden administration is sending the right signals so far. President Biden agreed with Russian President Vladimir Putin. To extend a key arms control agreement, but made clear that the U. S.

The Crazy Train
"What's up people. Welcome to think. This is a podcast about politics. Race and culture from a poc perspective. Eyeing my jane of horse. Sam and i'm erica lorella. Y'all we have to incredible all-stars love win. this happens. Yes twenty twenty one february. We're ready for you joining us from washington. Dc is washing. I li each contributing opinion writer with the new york times wa. I'm a brown man from california surrounded by snow joining us from santa fe. New mexico is. Jenny may independent investigative journalist and founder of the newsletter. Indigenously welcome back jenny. Happy new year. Happy new year high friends two all stars. I love this love. That the molly's jenny by glad all right moving on also in the middle of snow in some deep connecticut and new england new england. And there's a lot of snow but we're going to start with what's happening in congress so there's just over a week until the impeachment trial of former president trump is going to begin the senate. I mean as per usual. it's been messy and that's like a nice way to put it. It's just basically been fucked. There have been reports that trump was struggling to find lawyers to defend him and over the weekend five members of his legal team. They're gone including his to lead attorneys gun here on sunday night however he announced that he did have two new heads for the his defense team. David shown and bruce castor. Of course we know that even though the trial is still happening at least seventeen. Republicans will need to vote with the democrats in order to convict trump in the senate. Which is i. Don't know. I mean i still hold your so. I don't know why because you know me but it's highly unlikely only five. Republicans didn't vote to dismiss the trial on monday. However reuters reported that dozens of republicans who worked in the george w bush administration announced that they were leaving the party. Still we know that more than half of the party voted to block certification. The violent insurrection at the capitol. They voted to block certifying election. Okay seeing the way the majority of the gop is still rallying behind trump. because they just can't get enough calling. This impeachment actually unconstitutional which is like what. What constitution are you reading. The question. was also you know because now there's all of these like will he be asked to be a witness in a trial. Yeah will there be accountability. What's your first take wash. no. I admire your optimism. I think optimism as needed. It warmed my heart To hear you say that maria snuggle jaded heart because you know. I have to be optimistic but i give you the republican party. Where like you just said. Nearly half of them voted to overturn a free and fair election where they have the hate monger known as mark taylor. Green not stripped of any committees She's a bigot. Who believes in jewish space later. End is an anti semite Yunan supporter and by the way. Now we have a republicans who realize that the base belongs to trump in even after he was impeached. Four trying to overturn the election remember. Who's first impeached for abusing his power to get ukraine to interfere in the election. They were fine with that. So nothing's going to happen. I've heard of the civil war. The civil war has ended. Trump and trump is trumpism one however there is something here where i think that the democrats can play on isn't it. They can just bleed off a few of these republicans who are leaving in mass and some of his corporate money in corporate dollars right. So there's a small civil war here that's happening behind the scenes. Yeah but the base is trump the basis marjorie taylor. Green base are the folks who voted to overturn the election. And i think no matter. How bad shit crazy. He gets this week or next week they will find a way to acquit him. That's what's going to happen okay. Jenny feeling the same way that it that is like a dose of reality. Thank you wash. it's the reality. I think that we're all thinking into but it's also you know when you look at people like marjorie green. She affirms the fact that you know this crazy train has already left and she missed it. And i think that we're all moving on. And you know full will fall where they may and they might not be. Perfect in terms of holding trump accountable. But i think that this country is for the better of just moving forward. You know i always see things from indian country perspective and you know we had three out of the six of our congressional leaders. Vote to block the impeachment of trump. And you know to support overturning biden's victory. I just think that that's crazy. And one of them has been the longest serving congressman for indian

"Trump has until tomorrow to file a formal response to his impeachment. Charge of inciting an insurrection at the capitol on six january as you may know by now. Trump lost his entire legal team over the weekend. He has since named two new lawyers just last night. They are david showing and bruce. Castor junior shown as a georgia based lawyer who has represented mobsters and longtime trump adviser roger stone earlier tonight. He previewed his trial argument on fox news. Besides the fact that this process is completely unconstitutional. And this is a very very dangerous road to take with respect to the first amendment putting it risk any passionate political speaker which is really an against everything we believe in in this country foundation of the first amendment. But i'm gonna tell you. I think it's also the most ill-advised legislative action that i've seen in my lifetime is tearing the country apart at a time when we don't need anything like that i think president biden missed a great opportunity to be a statesman and demanded that this thing be called off. Frankly this is the political weaponization of the impeachment
