"I don't think sam you're upset enough about the this narrow channel thing and i just appointed. I thought you'd be more upset. I i guess we were. We were talking about this. Like we lost brian. Oh and and joe biden Joe biden one. And i think near tanned is a look if you strip away her. I think she's a cipher and i don't think that she has any real political grounding. I think that the biden administration like this. this interpretation. i've seen people say like they. They got near tenants to the bernie. Sanders has to be on the banking committee and kawtar. Look why does why do people think it's gonna work that way like like like. Why do people think that burners kowtow to her which comes up in front of the banking committee. That's not the way it's going to work. No i mean. I think like you know the against deliberate. I think it's going to happen. I mean well. I don't think he's gonna kowtow to your. I think there's going to be. There will be interaction between the two of them. Sure and i mean it almost. Who's going to be more uncomfortable for. It's gonna be more comfortable for her. He's a senator. He's sitting there and she's coming to see him as a senator in the summer. I mean i he is going to have to Kaz centers can make make difficult for for people in the cabinet. But i mean. I don't think that the i think that i think what happens. In the the biden transition is they have a list and they say like we have these three of these whatever five boxes that we check off one of them is we owe clinton world and what do we owe clinton world. We owe them three. I think what does biden people say. We owe them a lot right. And they're like amy. And so how do we feel that. How do we fill one of those things that we owe them. It's not a muffin basket. It's putting somebody into paying off their debts. And how do we get but we want somebody there that we can control. That's not going to necessarily have their own agenda. So who's a cipher that we can play here and i'm not convinced that the biden people aren't like center american progress. She's a progressive right. Well i think that's the problem right like i think you're actually write them when you say she's not going to get through. I think they actually kind of are using this as like a way to get with. The guys live bruce read. That's what scares me more than a deficit hawk. Her twitter activity is like not going to get her like. She's i don't think she'll get through bolitho she does right. I think the problem is that the same problem you have with pelosi right. There's the sheen of like progressiveness on near attended right. I was at my cousin. Action does some videos for center for american progress in terms of like some of their informational videos. And a passover seder like two years ago and they were like oh. Have you heard of like center for american progress. They do a lot of really progressive things. And i was just like a no. They don't and like. I like i think. The problem is these resistance. Lives to like people who don't pay attention to as enough as we do. They senior attendant. They think she's a progressive in the same way they pelosi is a progressive and i think again but the only. Here's the only pushback. I will give you like a real unlash or urban looked at as a progressive i whom enter right by but but but i think josh in terms of like the voters did go go. Ask people who don't have a kid working at the center for american progress as to who near attended and they're gonna look at you like what like i'm not saying don't don't ask around the dsa. Ignore meeting i'm saying like the the lib you're talking about the people who are like you know like now go to brunch. They don't know who near camden is they. Don't know what the center for american progresses. They just don't know and they don't like this is the question is is like you know. I think to the extent that there's any calculation on behalf on the part of the biden administration. It is we. Don't we got to throw a bone to the clinton people we also throw a bone so that the republicans have some red meat that they can chew up and this is a three for because the left if they even contemplated that the left would have a problem with near hand in which. I'm not sure that they did if they contemplated that because they've said for a long time like we don't go on twitter and i don't know if that's true or not but if it's true like they may not they may not even know but if they did know they'd be like okay they'll be able to sink this this pick. The republicans will be able to sink this pick and then we can put in somebody who's going to like help us pivot austerity at one point. Like that's to the extent that i have a concern. That's my real concern like near. Attendance is going to do whatever the biden administration tells her to do. She doesn't have her own northstar. Let's put it that way. She's a hack. She's a party hack. i think she's also like i think there's a little bit.

"Know that all lives don't matter the black lives matter. Even black lives members are saying now that the corporate part of black lives matter leaving behind. So there's there's there's a that that that is being so to keep people divide it. And i hope that's why i'm saying. The leadership of this date has to come together take statement. This is about a fair and transparent elections if they take it this time and we lay down we've lost. Our country was the last man standing between chaos and community and now if the senate goes glen this country goes. I asked you on election night. Why are you still a democrat. I leave my part of my party. Left me but i can tell you that. I'm getting fed up with the democratic party. Because they're a part of the crowd include. Stacey abrams of this so-called. I call it unfair fight. They're the ones who disenfranchising voters but not wanting the recount not wanting This the all of the irregularities being reviewed their part of disenfranchising black. Both of many blacks voted for president trump. And they want their vote counted as well It doesn't matter what party i am. What matters is that. I find what i believe in fight but people but i will say this I'm getting fed up with the democratic party so stay tuned. State rep bobby jones from georgia. Thank you very much. Appreciate it sir. This this guy is bet. This guy has been so brave the whole time. He came out and supported trump Couple years ago. I think it was. Maybe it was just a year ago. Time goes by so fast. now. I don't even know what day it is But he's been. He's been incredible the whole time he has been. He has no loyalty to party. Zero know. that's what i want. I want out of politicians. I want them not to be loyal to a party. And with a loyal to the ideas the principles and very rarely. Does that happen anymore. So what are the principles of either party seriously. Yeah i hear. The parties again are just vehicles to win elections. No i know that. But i mean the the should be the vehicle that is driving the principles you know what i mean or yeah i mean it should not taking those principles in advancing them exactly right now all. That's being advanced his power You know and that's the problem. I think most people have is what i mean. Who do you who do you. Who do you trust. Do you really trust the gop. Now do i trust the democrats know because the democrats have been eaten by marxists. They're gone and the ones that remain want a one party system. So no thank you. No thank you I you know. that's i think the thing that people liked about donald trump was he was outside of the system he didn't really have any friends And it was because he was trying to do what he felt. The people wanted And that just does not sit well with people who are going to lose money and power and that's what those parties are all about this one in georgia however if you are a conservative or if you just would like to balance things out a little bit and make sure. There's not an open runway for them just to launch plane after plane after plane to be able to attack our constitution and our principles and values. We need those two seats. Those two seats must go to republicans. Both would be really good. You need at least one. I just feel at least one. I think and then you get a thai. Thai would get you fifty fifty one forty nine republicans however that means you have you depend on lisa murkowski for every vote collins for every vote. It romney for every vote which is not a good place to be. I feel like with this georgia election. Because obviously understandably people have been more focused on the presidential situation. We have a few more weeks here before georgia but we're all kind of like standing on the edge of a cliff on with one leg and we're kind of like well. We think the wind is blowing towards the safe side. I mean it could blow us over the cliff. We are on the edge of the abyss. Here yeah this is like slightest wind if this goes the wrong way we are in a situation where the democrats control everything and will they go ahead and pass to get rid of the filibuster. I mean i would not be surprised at all. Certainly if they had. Why would you be surprised. I mean the woman who is the head of the o. m. b. one of the problems with her is your tendon yet to one of the problems with her is she was. She's radical of radicals. she's from the center american progress. She was one of the people that said. The democrats shouldn't fear of the republicans And and fear the american people anymore. They should just rule by executive order. Now she's in charge of the budget which means she's in charge of all of the little levers and switches for all of the government agencies. So that's their real plan is to get control of the The cabinet and all of the agencies to be able to switch things remember. She was the lead architect or one of the lead architects on obamacare. She was the one who said. Let's let the secretary decide what that's going to be. Remember how open that thing was where it was all. It all went to secretary's discretion. Well that's because it leaves all of the options on the table for an administrator to come in and screw the american people if they want run it the way they want to run it. Not the way you've been promised she's the architect of that If she gets in. It's a huge sign. They are going to ram everything through and it's not going to go through. Congress is just going to go through executive order and that's the important thing to understand about near attendant in that like on paper. It's a very weird choice right. She's got a very long public record of controversial comments. She's she's you know. Sort of a twitter troll and so she has all sorts of stuff she deleted over a thousand tweets since this started here in the last couple of weeks but in addition to that not only do conservatives dislike her for many a very valid reasons. She's also kind of hated by the bernie group. Like oh yes. I mean she was. She was a big clinton person. So the she got in fights all the time with the bernie bros. and she says she's not liked by the far left and she's not liked by the right. It's hard to see really what she brings to the table. With the exception of what you just described an expertise in a form of government that we don't really have right which is to make administrators. Sort of run everything. What sort of power can we suck out of this system. That was not intended but is available to grab right and that goes against everything that we are that makes no one responsible. You can't vote them out. You can't vote the congress out you can't vote the senate out cam. Vote the president. Or if you do doesn't matter these are now all the rules that have been set by all of these little. You know Dare i say it dark government or shadow government kind of Kind of people. Remember the choices with joe biden. We're one of two really one. Is he going to give it up. Many willing to give up the ghost. And then just the marxist will take over kamala harris or willie hold the line. And he's just using those guys and he's putting in all of the clinton people which the clinton people and the obama people same people that Were running this shadow government. That's where you get all of the people that you can't fire that are screwing up the intelligence community screwing up the justice department. That's how that happens is exactly what this woman is. Best at making sure that that shadow government runs forever. Either way we've got to have the senate we have to have. The senate is the only speed bump. They have our sponsor this half hour.

"Let me just report some real talk amidst all this for you tonight one. There's no cost crisis here. President-elect biden will assume office on january twentieth there's not a single pending legal case in the nation that can change that result to at the same time. Donald trump's unprecedented failure to not only concede but to even speak since he became the loser on. Saturday is putting his party and the country through this sort of rolling absurdity this week now. Most people are familiar with the classic five stages of grief a concept from psychiatrist elizabeth kubler. Ross denial anger bargaining depression and then acceptance trump appears still mired in the first stages of denial anger a note that puts him behind his supporters. Only three percent of americans a rounding error falsely think. Donald trump won according to the latest polling republican. Legislators seem to have hit that later acceptance stage in private while they publicly coddled trump. Which is one way to view his newfound focus this republican discussion of something as arcane intelligence. Briefings they're now operating as some kind of middle stage between trump's denial and later acceptance and see the headlines. You have republicans backing this basic thing. Briefings for president-elect him because he's president-elect simple and someday they may even be able to say the second part out loud but thanks to donald trump. His party has to make this painful partake longer. They have to work through more drama. More emotional hijacks which is leading some to ask throughout american history. Has there ever been a period. More tailored to snowflake sensitivities. That's the strange scene in the adjustment period for republican washington wall over on the democratic side. President like biden is just moving forward with governing appointing. Ron klein new white house of staff.

"Lot unpacking acting air time. Pack their colonel. Are you surprised. No I'm not surprised. I mean this is who they are. This is what they think and believe. I don't think he's in Iowa anymore. Maybe maybe he is in a gulag right. Hopefully I'll get to go to a gulag. They're probably GonNa just execute me when they take over. The interesting thing Sarah in guys. Is that that if you look at. What a state senator just said in Virginia State Senator Marston? He is saying that everyone support the Second Amendment has a mental illness. And so this is what they if you don't believe and embrace our ideological agenda no matter how failing it is then. There's something wrong with you and you need need to be reeducated or you have a mental illness. Something along that now they will never say that. TRANSGENDERISM is a mental condition which the American psychiatric association said because they embrace that is part of their agenda. So this is going to be okay. You know we talked off lot. This GonNa be an incredible twenty two thousand for you guys because they're just gonNA keep feeding you all all the ammunition because they believe that you know we're out of the bag now Jason. What are your thoughts? There was so much I don't even know where to start. But this is so great for them to finally kind of out themselves in their own words when he was talking about. Why do you think we want free education? Why do you want to why do you? Why do you think that it's such a good idea for us the government to the educate your kids indoctrination it's exactly reeducation indoctrination? That's exactly what it's therefore I couldn't believe that a lot of that wouldn't wasn't even showed would but he talked about you know if burning I thought this from the get-go And I haven't actually last time with the super delegates went to Hillary and he was so mad and the big split which also call a Aqazadeh big split like with center American progress That's Oh my gosh. That was untouchable. You know the leading progressive think tank. Now it's just gone Their online presence has gone But but if he was saying that if they do this again to them while they're in Milwaukee walk ask if they do this in Milwaukee there will be. They said it'll make nineteen seventy-eight look like a girl Scout Out Cookie reunion or something like that. He was bringing fire to the street. He said he said if he does not win. The nomination Milwaukee will burn or even if you go second ballot right right yeah you'll look like Chicago. Imagine imagine you put revolutionaries running for president of the United States revolutionaries sink shirtless in the Soviet Union. How do you think they're going to operate wants things? Come you talk and gloves. You know you're talking indoctrination and you're talking about the streets of Milwaukee burning. You can get Zurve. I guess the bad part is that he's not going to be asked about it. He's not it can be asked to answer for this personal his staff if he was they would just frame him as well. This is just some radical staffer that we have and I don't worry about him but they're not going to show there's video on any of the networks at the people who vote for the Democratic primary whatever watch so it's just GonNa blow under the rug and so we will see it and we already know what we think about them. We already know what's behind and these policies that they're doing but the people who actually are GonNa make the decisions for that party. They're not gonNA really be aware of this and a lot of them. I mean. Maybe they're okay with this kind of talk. I don't know but we won't find out because because we won't see it on but I think the concern they have to have I mean and I'm going back to the General Sulamani The rhetoric they're creating the commercials for September up timber in October in their own words. Because if Bernie Sanders does become the nominee. You can guarantee that that will be a commercial advertisement that will resurface Starting as soon as they say you know our nominee you know future President Bernie Sanders Bam. That keeps going to that. Venezuela's there's I think something happened with the green new deal where one of the people behind it said. It's not about climate. It's about changing economy. You flip upside down. You know that sometimes I say that quite apart out loud but it doesn't really get publicized. Publicized it really is on us to try to get that out there as much as we can Colonel I wanna go back to something you said just about how the left is so good. I think at re Freeman. What words mean and reframing something to make something either sound benign when it's not right or vice versa? You know you talked about transgenderism. That's not a mental illness. That's totally fine. But believing in the Second Amendment which is part of you know what this country was founded upon that makes you have mental illness. I see in this video to where you have someone talking about. That's what they had to do to Nazis. Put them in Gulags. And it's like who are the Nazis really in this current day situation. Dan well that's the thing and that's what education that's why what you all do. Every single day is is important because Nazi stood for National Socialists So let's start talking about what Socialists do and Benito Mussolini was an Italian Fascist dictator. Let's start talking. About what fascists. Do you know anti file. Who goes out and says there? antifascists okay. Yeah they're beating up and keeping people from having a First Amendment freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Hello MC fly. Maybe we need to have some conservative education education camps the to teach these young people what they're not getting so is so important we take the language back from them. You know instead of saying abortion murdering an unborn child is not women's reproductive health. They're very good masters at Language in lexicon manipulation And I think that's something that if I can criticize is the current. GOP can do it a lot. But I'll do it a little bit right here. I can change danger Jason. I know where you're going you're right. I think there's an absence a- actual teaching conservative values is a lot of people are like saying. Oh those conservatives you know oh like pick. Some random person has nothing at all to do with conservatism. But they're grouping us all together right now. I haven't really okay. Yes I will invoke the holy name of Reagan for a second. I haven't really seen someone do that effectively until a guy that was a liberal and had to study this stuff in depth on his own by reading through it was when he was when he was doing stuff with Ge he learned all this stuff on his own and then was able to with charisma. Teach it to people. I don't see that today. The only people I try I see trying or I don't know maybe people on the internet or something like that but not people people that are elected government nowadays. I also think Give me your thoughts Aaron. I also think that I completely agree with you Jason. I think that we're not teaching history anymore. And we're not using opportunities to say okay so you keep calling someone a Nazi But could you. Let's talk about what the Nazis actually did head and what they stood for and what their ideals were. And let's line that up and see who they aligned with more at this particular point. Isn't anybody watching that clip. I mean it's nonsense what he's saying and Nazi has become a thing where they say it so much to somebody I disagree with. I'm a Democrat and somebody I disagree with. That's a Nazi so we're going to throw in a camp and make you believe what we believe. Because you're the Nazi anybody who had an understanding of history in the context of that word they will look at that and say this person has no idea what they're talking about because that word has just become sort of just a name that you call somebody that you don't like you can just get away with saying that. And he believes that he's using it accurately. I'm sure just like a combination. And just like racist sexist Homophobic Obama phobic th. They just throw these labels out there but they really don't have any meaning anymore. Yeah I know coming up. We're going to talk about the democratic debate happening tonight Erin. You said so. You mentioned that you don't think that Bernie is going to be asked about this particular video that surfaced at all. You don't even think they're going to bring it up and it is a CNN debate abate. They're going to challenge them in that way. I don't think it's in their interest to tear down their own candidates. You know they'll push them on policy differences a little bit but they're not going to call somebody out. I'd be surprised if they called him out on the thing about can a woman win. I'm not sure they'll even ask that because they're not trying to risk tarnishing one of the candidates that might be the one to go up against trump. They're not going to give of any AMMO to trump against their own top front runners Jason Anything who is interesting actually because I initially. When you're saying that I completely agree with you but then I was wondering you should filagree? Just WanNa see more intelligent but I don't know like there is a push now within the elites within the media with everyone to kind kind of help Biden along I think on some of these so I'm just curious I I don't know if you know they're they'll feel pressured to be like. Oh my gosh. One of these crazies is getting a little bit closer. I wonder if we should help. Tip The scales a little bit You know Joe I don't know I think it would be smart for Biden to bring it up absolutely smart for by the and that's what I wonder as well. What do you think Sanders is in the top position in Iowa. He's got the spotlight on him. Someone is going to bring this up. Someone that's going to cause controversy absolutely they have to cannibalize each other other now because they're fighting. What three weeks? They're fighting for that small pool and right now. Warren wants to convince the the sanders crowd. Because that's sir crowd. The far left crowd this. She's the one that can take that that standard Ford and what you're right the the folks there they are of the Democrats thousand. Jim Messina. His even come out and say hey guys timeout. We're getting a little bit too wacky. And so they're very concerned that they're setting themselves up for a McGovern Mkaku Mondale moment here in this year. I mean the the the the the war in leak was came out through CNN. Then right yes so. It almost seems like they're already in that pocket of we gotta do something against Bernie Sanders guest coming over to your corner. I think this was probably brought up tonight. All right on the democratic debate when we return.

"To five the president tweeting about civil war there will be a civil war if he is removed I I gotTa tell you now in fairness to the president he's just re tweeting something that Robert Jeffreys the idiot pastor from Texas said on Fox News I don't I think it's helpful to the president to be tweeting that there's going to be a civil war or or fake news and the president seems to be circulated a bunch of conspiracy theories as well all we need to get to here there are two problems right now shaping up with impeachment on the Republican side they're also problem shaping up on the Democrat excited we need to get to on the Republican side though on on on the side of of righteousness if you're Republican the president is unhelpfully stirring the pot trying to rile up his base in a way that is going to build a BI partisan co Alicia against him as I have mentioned Ad Nauseam now there are eighteen republicans leaving the House of Representatives at the end of e- twenty not twenty twenty one they'll be out January third twenty twenty one they're not running for reelection there are eighteen of them right now they do not like the isn't it to some degree they feel like they are being driven from Washington because of the president and they understand that if the Democrats build momentum on this they're going to need by partisanship to give it credibility and in bringing bipartisanship to it the Republicans they're already nursing a grudge against the president lift pass articles of impeachment in the House representatives that then moves it to the United States Senate and when moving to the United States Senate the president already has four Republicans who are leaving the one of them the the senator from Wyoming is into WHO's leaving he he's okay with the president but we've got a Kansas that's opening and and Pat Roberts doesn't like the President Johnny Isakson and Georgia doesn't like the President Lamar Alexander into this he doesn't like the President the they may publicly be okay with the president but privately they they're not big fans of the president and they could give bipartisan stature in the Senate to build momentum you also now have Susan Collins in the Senate being very public that the president's attacks on the whistle blower are inappropriate the so you've got a problem there you got a problem with Mitt Romney who is a republican state that doesn't like the President a Democrats and third party candidates did far better in Utah with Donald Trump on the ballot in two thousand sixteen than they've ever done Utah being the most republican state in the country and yet they don't like President Trump you've got pat toomey in Pennsylvania you you've been SAS in Nebraska SAS in an awkward situation that he's on the ballot but SAS views the constitution very strongly you've got a number all of these senators around the country who else Richard Burr in North Carolina has expressed concerns missing one or two in any event you've got enough republic look in the United States Senate even if you can't get to two thirds you pull it close in you severely weakened the president for reelection but the president saying there's going to be a civil war if he is removed who've really just causes the collegiality among members of the Senate to go up because they want show it's not true and that's a problem for the president it is also a problem for the president and his team that they do not have a prevailing narrative right now to try to defeat this they're throwing conspiracy theories the latest conspiracy theory being circulated by he actually very good friends of mine on the on the right is that the inspector general changed the re according requirements for whistle blowers so that you used to and you probably heard in fact the president is tweeting this out this morning as a matter of fact I in the last minute or so the in his tweeted this out that up until August of this year whistleblowers could only file a whistleblower complaint particularly the intelligence community with first hand information they weren't allowed to file a whistleblower complaint with second hand information in the form was changed in August of two thousand nineteen this is true the form was changed in twenty nineteen it is not true however that prior to twenty nineteen only I end accounts could be filed that's not true at all in fact prior to twenty nineteen what happened was the form allow old second hand complaints but they you had you didn't have to specify who the secondhand complaints came from let me Redo the breakdown here it is actually rather imported just texted this to someone and now I close the screen let me pull up this complaint again yeah since at least two thousand seventeen four twenty four t four and four oh one which has the whistleblower complaint record wired that there'd be a distinguishing between direct and personal knowledge or Heard about it from others the change came we're on the old forum there were three options you heard about it from secondhand sources outside of your area or from other employee's within your area now there are only two boxes one is firsthand information the other is second hand information in the second formation is than specified between other employees or people outside the agency Let me just read this to you so it so I'm not screwing this up colonel effect towards this spiracy theories that there is a new form 401 dated August twenty nine hundred a question on the form explicitly anticipates tips based on second-hand information and asks the whistleblower to check a box I have direct personal knowledge or I heard about it from others what is it mentioned is that there's a near identical form grace scene four zero one that's assisted since at least may of two thousand eighteen making it impossible that it adds an easement for trump's whistle or the major difference in the fields is that the old form included reactions instead of two subdividing secondhand sources into outside sources and other employees so in other words the new box has I have acknowledge or I heard it from others the old box had I have direct knowledge or I heard it from others the others being people outside agency or other employees within my agency the old boxers a little more precise the new box not but both allowed secondhand knowledge so the president tweeting this morning that the old Ford did not allow secondhand knowledge is not true one of the other issues is that conservatives are essentially building in conspiracy theory in this says this is the issue that should concern the president's team in fact there's a report out the president upset with Mick Mulvaney for not having some sort of overarching narrative to deal with the situation. Here's here's the problem here right now. The prevailing narrative is conspiracy and most Americans don't buy conspiracy and it doesn't help when you're pushing conspiracies that easily debunked like for example this arm or the the Ukrainian situation saint brought about Joe Biden. What about Joe Biden? We'll we'll get to Joe Biden because that's where the Democrats have concerns I I want to do with my own side I and I think that what the president and his team needs is an actual overarching narrative a lot of the media is not going to buy this because the the media really is in the tank for the Democrats the media really is out to get the president and you do need to understand the media is out to get the president and by the way I think you can point out to the American people this is oh because the American people distrust the media the media has worse trust numbers than Congress as right now so I do think the president has an avenue to tell people the media really is biased against him and not giving him fair statements but let me outline for you if they were the president's messaging team let me give you the approach that I would take on this I I would make it very clear that there is more than one whistle lower it is pretty obvious from the whistleblower complaint that he's relying on a lot of people I suspect they're probably the same people and their fee in him this information more likely than not to helping build his whistleblower report second we've seen a sustained campaign from people in the elegance community trying to undermine the president they leaked transcripts of the call with the Australian prime minister they leaked transcripts of calls with the Mexican president so the president and his team to minimize these leaks moved where the transcripts were saved and now what do they do they turn that into a whistle blower late and they run out progressive allies to say this is improper in fact the Washington Post is running a story right now from a former person who worked for the national security team whose job was to compile these transcripts and she says it is inappropriate to put these transcripts in a secure server that that's not the purpose of the server do you know where this person works now this person works for the center American progress and is a senior vice president at the Center for American progress and if you don't know what cap is the Center for American progress is a far I think tank so you had a careerist in the intelligence community who goes to work for a far left think tank as vice president and now returns to the Washington Post to say hey you can't put these transcripts here that's wrong this is just another data point that the intelligence community is full of careerists who are partisan leftists who hate the president and so for the president and his team they wanted to minimize damaging leaks to national security that undermined the president's ability to conduct foreign policy so they secure the transcripts and now the whistle blowers saying hey you can't secure the transcripts well we're security because you guys kept leaking them next it's very clear the saboteurs are coordinating and the whistleblower complaint is not one person's work but multiple people you can get that from the the constant multiple officials told me multiple officials told me one official told me multiple officials told me and they're giving the whistle or detail information and by the way the whistle blower plate seems to breed professionally structured as a lawyer was was if as if a lawyer was employed we can tell it was the work of multiple people because it leaked the Democrats had advanced knowledge of it how did the Democrats find out about the whistle blower complaint the Director of National Intelligence the other okay said it wasn't from him so what I'm trying to ascertain is how would it run all the mainstream media outlets how did they get even though they got a lot of it wrong but they had the basics of it that it involved the president of the United States talking to a foreign leader so did anybody you nobody in your office leak this to the Washington Post or NBC news ranking member the geologist humidity we know how to keep a secret as far as how that got into the press I really did not know Sir I just know that it's all over the place and as you said it's been reported by different Media the past several weeks where they get their information from I don't know where they gather information I don't know how about from Democrats I mean the leak had happened or how does the whistleblower complaint get out of the I G structure how does Congress know that there's an urgency label the whistle blower identity did not Is it a curious we don't know who the whistle blower is yet I I wonder if that would undermine the whistle blowers credibility and into all of this they can say if there's really concerned here litigated this at the ballot box president is having to take extraordinary steps to secure information that that democratic leaker want to leak to embarrass the president sabotage our national security this needs to be we dealt with at the ballot box trust the American people and then when the media tries to dismiss all the CEO how.

Well, we are succeeding in our state. Look there's multiple tools in our toolbox. And this is good news. Right. It's good news that we don't have to depend on just one tool. So we're exercising. Multiple tools that are working our renewable portfolio standard as I said developed a six billion dollar wind industry, and in twelve years, we now are growing jobs in all kinds of sectors because of. My clean energy development fund, one hundred million dollar fund that we have we're electrifying and put people to work in software, dealing with the integration of batteries new battery technology, in fact, my neighbor's kid just went to work making batteries to integrate renewable energy, so we are working two days ago. In fact, the day was kind of lucky the dairy announced for president legislature passed or my Senate passed a Bill to provide a one hundred percent, clean electricity. And that would be a goal that we had to give all Americans as the same deal. Cindy, they banned super convince voters I want to show that our latest ABC news Washington Post poll ranked the issues at the top of voters minds improving healthcare, reducing economic inequality. Reducing discrimination combating global warming pretty far down their fourth on the list. Half of those were concerned about healthcare. How do you convince voters? This should be the overriding issue can you win? If you don't several things number one. This is no longer a chart or graph. Gets people experiencing it in their own lives as people in Seattle, Washington, waking up with ash on the hoods of their cars because our forests or bring down as people have Houston being flooded in Miami Beach, where they've had to raise their streets and a half, you know, look down at their shops in Miami Beach. So it's personal experience number one. And number two. This is changing dramatically Opole by the center American progress last week showed that amongst democratic primary voters in the first four states defeating climate change is actually number one priority now tied with healthcare. Now, the other thing you make this with this works is to talk about this from a character issue rather than just science. Look, I really believe that the way to win. This is to talk about the basic American character of who we are. We think big we go to the moon. We invent we create we build we lead the world. We don't follow it. We don't fear the world. You know, we lead it. And I think we have got to argue this from a character standpoint other ends of. Thanks for coming in today. Bet. Thank you.
