U.S. House panel gets Trump's tax returns after long legal battle. And record high temperatures see tornadoes wreck homes across the south. It's Thursday, December 1. I'm center templeton. House Democrats ushered in a new generation of leaders on Wednesday, with U.S. lawmaker representative Hakeem Jeffries unanimously elected to be the first black American to head a major political party in Congress. It comes at a pivotal time as long serving speaker Nancy Pelosi and her team step aside next year. Showing rare party unity after their midterm election losses. The House Democrats moved seamlessly from one history making leader to another, choosing the 52 year old New Yorker who vowed to get things done in the new Congress, even after Republicans won control of the chamber. In a letter to colleagues, Jeffreys gave a nod to the legendary figures before him. Pelosi, the first female speaker in U.S. history, and her leadership team. He encouraged his fellow House members to embrace a once in a generation opportunity to unleash their full potential as a team. Jeffries is joined by 59 year old representative Catherine Clark of Massachusetts, as the democratic whip and 43 year old representative Pete Aguilar of California as caucus chairman. The democratic unity stands in stark contrast with the upheaval among Republicans, who are struggling to unite around GOP leader Kevin McCarthy as the new House speaker as they prepare to take control when the new Congress convenes in January. While Democrats will be relegated to the House minority in the new year for the 118th Congress, they will have a certain amount of leverage because the Republican majority is expected to be so slim and McCarthy's hold on his party, fragile. Jeffreys said on Wednesday, he will work with Republicans whenever possible. But we will also push back against extremism whenever necessary. A U.S. House of Representatives committee has obtained Donald Trump's tax returns, following a years long court fight with the Republican former president, who accused the democratic led panel of being politically motivated. The ways and means committee which had been seeking Trump's tax returns spanning 2015 through 2020 will have little time to do its work, with Republicans poised to take the House majority in January. The committee said it needs the documents which it obtained following a Supreme Court decision clearing the release to establish whether the Internal Revenue Service is properly auditing presidential returns and whether new legislation is needed. Trump, who on November 15 began his third consecutive run for the presidency, fought the committee to avoid releasing the documents. He was the first president in four decades not to release his tax returns as he sought to keep secret the details of his wealth and the activities of his real estate company, the Trump organization. It had been long customary, though not required for major party presidential candidates to release their returns, voluntarily. Tornadoes have killed two people in Alabama and damaged and destroyed numerous homes and businesses across a number of southern states. The national weather service had warned that strong twisters capable of carving up communities over long distances were possible. As the storm front moved eastward from Texas. They were fueled by record high temperatures and threatened a stretch of the United States where more than 25 million people live. A total of 73 tornado warnings and a 120 severe thunderstorm warnings were issued, said Matthew Elliott, a meteorologist at the storm prediction center in Norman Oklahoma. It's a very vulnerable part of the country for tornadoes, especially after dark, he added. We all have to work together to get the best results on these types of events that could potentially lead to lots of devastation. Significant tornado damage was evidence in the flatwood community, north of Montgomery, Alabama, where two people were killed as a tree struck their home. Others in the tight knit community narrowly escaped with their lives. Search and rescue teams would continue going door to door until everyone's accounted for. Montgomery county sheriff Derrick Cunningham said. Record high temperatures in Texas and Louisiana intensified the stormfront before it moved into Mississippi and Alabama, forecasters said on Wednesday.

"Congress gets back to work this week after the holiday break, there's a lot of ground to cover between now and early January as well when the Republicans take control of the House officially. This morning CBS congressional correspondent Scott mcfarlane with some of the priorities of House Democrats right now. A memo issued to his colleagues by the outgoing House majority leader local congressman steny Hoyer lays out a few different things they want to get done by the end of December before Democrats lose control of the U.S. House. One of them is the respect for marriage act, this bill to strengthen protections for same sex marriage. Another is the electoral Reform Act, kind of obscure, but it would finalize or firm up the proceedings that are supposed to happen on future January 6th after elections to make sure there's no recurrence of the chaos of January 6th, 2021. They also want to keep the government from shutting down as we all would like to see happen. They need to get a spending plan finalized by December 16th. That's coming up on us, but they'd like a longer term one. Probably not just a sure federal workers, the lights will stay on, but to prevent Republicans from using that as a negotiating tool, the first months of Republican control. We have the House leadership elections coming up this week. How are they shaping up? That's Wednesday. At this moment, it appears the three top House Democrats will all be new names and new faces with steny Hoyer and speaker Nancy Pelosi stepping back from leadership, the new House democratic leader appears to be Hakeem Jeffries. Congressman from New York has been around here for about ten years. Catherine Clark of suburban Boston would be the democratic whip. And Pete Aguilar, who's on that January 6th committee, shaping up to be the number three leader unopposed, it appears. So when votes happen Wednesday and Thursday, it seems like a lock they'll be in. One local race I'm watching. Jerry Connolly, a Virginia. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, both vying to be the top Democrat on the House oversight committee, which has huge oversight over issues involving the district and the federal government. And now that the Supreme Court refused to block Congress from getting a hold of former president Trump's tax returns, what is the timetable for lawmakers to get to see them for the investigation? It's really vaguely they keep saying soon or as soon as possible and me checking every 5 minutes doesn't appear to be speeding up the process. One thing I'll note, it's unlikely the House ways and means committee, which has secured these tax returns or will soon secure them. It's not likely they're going to post them online for everybody to review. It'll be used as part of a report they're going to the issue

"Home estimate. 5 11 now on double DT TOP, senators are back on the floor of this evening and Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer says the lame duck session will be a busy one. There's a lot we must do before the end of the calendar year. Many of these things will require Republican cooperation to get done. Joining us live from Capitol Hill, WTO's Mitchell Miller, niche, what is the first thing Congress needs to get done in the coming weeks? Well, Hillary and Sean, the most immediate priority is funding the government and avoiding a government shutdown. Sound familiar. The deadline lawmakers will be staring down comes up on December 16th just over three weeks from now. Congress is going to have to either pass an omnibus spending bill that would last through the next year or another short term spending measure. They also have a lot of other things to do. They have to pass the defense authorization bill, which they've actually managed to do now for more than 60 years in a row. And they're taking up several other issues, including funding for Ukraine, legislation to protect same sex and interracial marriage, and the electoral accountability act or electoral count act, which is designed to prevent any future claims that the vice president can somehow unilaterally void the results of the presidential election by failing to help Congress to certify the Electoral College results, as we saw on January 6th. Which we also have the big leadership votes coming up for House Democrats and Republicans. That's right. First up are the Democrats this week who are expected on Wednesday to make New York congressman Hakeem Jeffries the next democratic leader replacing House speaker Nancy Pelosi is the party's standard bearer. Massachusetts congresswoman Catherine Clark in California congressman Pete Aguilar are expected to become number two and three respectively and there's been relatively little drama among the Democrats while there is some on the Republican side, as you know, top Republican Kevin McCarthy still trying to shore up support among conservatives so he can get elected in a floor vote as House speaker in January that could still provoke a floor fight for speaker, which is historically very rare here. Mitch former president Trump is getting criticized for meeting with a white supremacist and Mar-a-Lago last week. What are lawmakers saying and have we heard from Kevin McCarthy on this yet? Well, we've heard from Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer who addressed the issue on the floor of this afternoon. He's condemning mister Trump's meeting with Nick Fuentes, who joined him with rapper Kanye West. For a former president to sit down and have dinner with a high profile anti semite is disgusting and dangerous. Now we have into your question heard from Kevin McCarthy yet. Some Republicans have been critical of the former president's meeting, although we haven't heard from a lot, the former president, by the way, has claimed he doesn't know Fuentes, even though he's an active supporter of mister Trump. Kentucky congressman James comer, who is expected to become chair of the House oversight committee, told NBC's meet the press over the weekend that the former president needs to have in his words better judgment over who he dines with.

Will you give me just one chance to talk to you? Are you sure that this isn't just young women who want to sleep with a movie producer to try to get ahead? This is bigger than Weinstein. This is about the system protecting abusers. And all the legendary stories of abuse and power are the subjects of a brand new movie called she said. This morning, Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday, thanks a look at the movie that traces the harrowing experiences of women who fell into his orbit. This is one of those cases where a movie's been sort of ripped from the headlines so that the audience is so familiar with the facts of the case that you wonder where does the suspense come from? Where does the narrative tension come from? And the director Maria Schrader and the two lead actresses Carey Mulligan plays Meghan two E and Zoe Kazan plays Jody Cantor, the two reporters who told the story, the brilliance of this film is how it makes we think of as a series of facts and a story that sort of unfolded in a really powerful, but maybe to some people still abstract way. It just gives it such emotional immediacy. I just think it brings the stakes of this story to such vivid, vivid life. And it's not just through the reporters chasing down the story, but it's in the women who have the courage to come forward. There are former mayor max employees played by Samantha Morton and just a shattering performance. And Jennifer Ellie, and then also the real life Ashley Judd plays herself coming to grips with having to go public or deciding to go public with her personal story. I mean, I choked up several times throughout the movie. So in other words, it's gripping, not because of suspense or not knowing how it turns out, but just the emotional power and the moral power of these women coming forward. And do you think this is one of those movies that's considered important? I do Hillary because it memorializes a turning point. I mean, as we heard in that introduction, this is that rare article or group of articles that sparked a movement. And we're still in it. It changed the world. So I think part of the job of pop culture and movies is to take note of that and to dramatize it in an exciting and gripping way, but also just a way that does right by history. And I think this movie does both. It's superbly entertaining, and I think will last. And

"With lasted just about 16 minutes, she did not actually pin this decision on any recent event. However, previous reporting in her previous comments have suggested that the attack on Paul Pelosi did play an outsized role in this decision if we remember when speaker Pelosi spoke to Anderson Cooper in the days after the attack, she specifically said that the attack on her husband would affect her ultimate decision. And of course, that decision was to step away from democratic leadership, but remain in Congress. But safe to say that in the days to come, reporters will be peppering her with questions to understand really what this decision came down to. And with steny Hoyer also stepping aside from leadership, do you expect a massively new direction for House Democrats likely under the leadership of Hakeem Jeffries of New York? This is absolutely a total change up and switch in democratic leadership. As you mentioned, Pelosi and Hoyer are stepping back. It will likely be Jeffries to succeed Pelosi as the top Democrat followed by Catherine Clark who's currently the assistant speaker. And then congressman Pete Aguilar is also expected to be in the mix. A really significant change at the top of the democratic caucus in terms of the ages, a much younger slate of leaders. And it's quite possible that this could potentially change the direction of the democratic caucus. Of course, we'll have to see how it plays out and see what sort of legislative steps they take. Of course, also Democrats will be in the minority in the next Congress. But safe to say this was a real seismic change and decision made by Pelosi and Hoyer that will have an effect on the democratic caucus. I want to be as delicate as possible in asking this next question there is clearly tremendous respect on Capitol Hill and off Capitol Hill for Nancy Pelosi. But have you been hearing whispers from some younger members that it's about time that we change things over? There are several members who have been pushing for this in recent weeks or even recent months rather, sort of saying that new blood is needed in the democratic leadership, just right before we left for the fall recess, congresswoman Abigail spanberger, a Democrat from Virginia. She put out a statement bluntly saying we need new democratic leaders in this caucus.

"Motivation? And I know that you're going to tell me she loves serving the people, but why hang around after this isn't life going to be a little bit weird for everybody when you go from the head of the table to sitting with the plebes? Yeah, that's a great question. I really hadn't contemplated that in terms of that because I think I do think she has a great deal to offer in terms of experience. We know that these really are these three Hakeem Jeffries Catherine Clark and Pete Aguilar. They have their very capable people. But I do think to share some of the offer. It may have to do with the fact that she was just reelected. She's not someone who wants to pull the wall operating with xyosted for the constituents. Maybe give those who might contemplate running an opportunity to the field themselves, including our daughter Christine. So it was also where would she be interested in running for our seat? So I don't have a perfect answer for that, but why is steady Hoyer stay for the same reason maybe? Yeah, right. So is this the start of the hakim Jeffries era? I certainly hope so. I have been a big fan of joachim's when I left Congress, he replaced me as the chair of the caucus. And I oversaw that election. In fact, that was one of the last official acts I was part of. And I saw how he handled himself. He's a great orator, he has great skills, he's very smart. And I think he knows how to build coalitions. And that's what's so critical of being in Congress. You can no person can be annihilated in Congress. If you are going to be successful and Hakeem was a legislator, but is also a great power. So what's life like when you're in the minority, Democrats have been used to run on the show for a minute here. Do you become the opposition party just by the nature of it or is the minority so greater? I guess I should say the majority is so slim here when it comes to math that you're going to have Democrats and Republicans at the table. Yeah, there's no doubt. This is going to be opportunities I think for Democrats to be a part of important decision making because we still control The White House and certainly the Senate. And so I think The White House will be looking to hakim and his leadership to keep the democratic caucus together. As does that can happen. It's not going to happen on every vote. But there may be an opportunity as well that Republicans are going to need Democrats in the House to pass. Spending bills for instance, the debt ceiling, if you're able to do that before the new Republican conference takes control of the speakership. There may be other issues that come up as well that I think it's going to be so tight that McCarthy is going to need to, I think, turn to Hakeem Jeffries in the health democratic caucus for assistance in getting must pass legislation. Yeah, right. Well, it's been reported that congressman Jeffries is not a fan of this man, the man who would be speaker. When you wake up tomorrow, we will be in the majority and Nancy Pelosi

To present the gavel of the United States House of Representatives to the first woman speaker in our history, the general lady from California, Nancy Pelosi. 15 years later. For what purpose does the gentlewoman from California seek recognition? As we gather here, we stand on sacred ground, the chamber of the United States House of Representatives. The heart of American democracy. For nearly 20 years, Pelosi has been in democratic leadership in that chamber. My Friends, no matter what title you all, my colleagues have bestowed upon me, speaker, leader, whip, there is no greater official honor for me than to stand on this floor and to speak for the people of San Francisco. And she will keep doing that. But as a rank and file member. I will not seek reelection to democratic leadership in the next Congress. One where Republicans will be in the majority. For me, the hours come for a new generation. Pelosi is 82, as is number three House Democrat Jim Clyburn, top deputy steny Hoyer is 83 and not long after Pelosi's speech said he too will stay in Congress, but step down from leadership. Clyburn has said he wants to keep a leadership spot, but also looks forward to helping the new generation, specifically noting the trio of Hakeem Jeffries, Catherine Clark, and Pete Aguilar. For Pelosi, it's all a moment of reflection. When I first came to the floor at 6 years old, never would I have thought that someday I would go from home maker to House speaker.

"To Osama bin Laden? I'm comparing the words of a individual who would incite and radicalize somebody. As Osama bin Laden did to what President Trump did. You don't actually have to commit the violence yourself. Okay? I'm sorry. That's insane. That is insane. Also have been a lot and didn't just say mean things on the twitters. Osama bin Laden actively planned, fomented and achieved terrorist attacks, ending with the murder of thousands of American citizens. Not quite the same thing there, Eric Swalwell. It's always fun to hear about national security from a guy who was literally in bed with the Chinese by that's all that's always fun. Meanwhile, representative Clark, this would be Catherine Clark. She says that the president of the United States has spent his entire his entire administration fomenting white supremacy again. The goal here is to lump everybody together because that has predictable effects. That has pretty When you lump everybody together. Then you get to censor everybody. That's the fun of the game. So here is Captain Clark yesterday. The truth is President Trump incited a violent attack against the United States government. The truth is President Trump spent his presidency inflaming hate, white supremacy, anti Semitism and violence. The truth is, he was enabled by all those who perpetuated the lie that the most secure election in our nation's history was stolen. The truth is that these seditious actions less left five dead, our capital besieged Pretty in our democracy hanging in the balance the argument that Trump has done this all along. It was utterly inevitable. So that means if you voted for me, new is inevitable, So it's your fault. And that is that is the goal here and there are ramifications to this right. We can see the ramifications happening in real time, because if you believe not just that Trump did something wrong, but that everybody who agrees with Trump is engaged in quasi violent action. And the proper response is to shut them down. And that is precisely what we are seeing calls for from the same left that says. It's really just about Trump. We really just don't like his behavior. Really. Then why is Nicholas Kristof writing in today's New York Times that advertisers should boycott Fox News? Why's Thomas Friedman celebrating the fall of the Republican Party? More generally. It seems as though there might be a secondary agenda here and the secondary. Jenna might actually be the primary agenda for a lot of people for a lot of people. It seems that maybe the doubt about motivation are justified. We'll get to that in just one second first. Let's talk about the fact that censorship on social media sites it is a thing. It is a thing. I mean, they're hash tags that are being shut down their sources that you're not allowed to see. They're big tech sites that are banning accounts. But meanwhile, they're making money off of you. So why would you allow the big tech media bro's to make money off of you while simultaneously attempting to cut you off from content you want to see instead of letting social media sites do that instead, how about you revoke their right to your data? Now you could just deactivate all your social media accounts that would be giving the left just what they wanted in the first place. Instead, I use expressive VPN. Have you ever wondered how Frida Access sites make all their money? Well, the tractor searches your video history, everything you click on. And then they saw that data when you use Express VPN, you anonymous much of your online presence by hiding that idea dress that makes your activity more difficult to trace and sell to advertisers and express VPN couldn't be easier to set up. You just tap one button on your phone or computer and you are now protected.
