House Democrats pass partisan COVID bill; relief talks drag
"Hours before the news broke that President Trump had tested positive for the Corona virus. The House of Representatives approved a new stimulus bill mostly along party lines. The $2.2 trillion bill is the latest bid by House Democrats who want an aid package passed before the election. Congress is still negotiating with the White House. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says now those talks may have shifted. This kind of changes the dynamic because Here. They see the reality of what we have been saying all along. The inability of Congress in the Trump Administration to reach bipartisan deal comes as companies are announcing mass layoffs and markets are responding to the news of Trump's diagnosis. We've got NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snow with us. Hi, Kelsey. Hi, there. What else did Speaker Pelosi say this morning while she was speaking on MSNBC, and she says she is praying for the president his family and that the line of succession is intact. We shouldn't remember that she is second in line behind vice president Pence in that line of succession. If something were to happen to the president But, you know, she also said that while it is tragic that the president was diagnosed with Krone virus spreading this disease is preventable. Going into crowds unmasked and all the rest was sort of. Ah, brazen invitation for something like this to happen, said that it did. But nonetheless hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about. Just for some context, I think it's pretty notable that Congress has no testing regime of any kind. Pelosi herself has been tested and is awaiting her result. And several top White House aides have been in contact with senior Senate Republicans in recent days who also don't have a testing regime. They were shepherding trumps nominee for the Supreme Court, Amy Cockney Barrett through her meetings on Capitol Hill. So there's a question about how why the impact could be in Washington right so and in Washington next week. Judge Amy Kuney. Barrett is expected to have her confirmation hearing. I mean, do we have any idea how the president's positive Corona virus test and the contact tracing that will emerge from that how that's going to affect the hearing? Well, we should say that we know that Barrett has been tested and she tested negative She's tested daily. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had an interview this morning where, he said this nomination process is moving ahead, and Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham says everything is on track for the hearings to begin on October 12th. No, it's it's a situation where they're talking about having her nomination come out of committee by October 22nd and she still has a lot of meetings to do, and there is a question of how these hearings would actually happen. Majority leader McConnell suggested that perhaps this would be a more virtual hearing than we saw in previous confirmation process is so ah, lot is still up in the air, but they do expect to have a vote on the Senate floor, though McConnell still will not commit to exactly when that will happen. So let's get back to the Corona virus Financial relief bill. I mean the speaker, Pelosi said the dynamics of the negotiations might change. I mean, how does the president's diagnosis really make it more likely that there's bipartisan agreement here? Well, we don't really know exactly because the president hasn't been particularly involved in these conversations. In fact, he's been not involved at all. He has left it to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to continue talks with Speaker Pelosi and included an in person meeting this week. Now they this is a situation where if President Trump decided to endorse a Billy would have considerable sway with Republicans. On DH. Obviously, there's going to be political blowback from for both parties. If they can get something done, right? Absolutely, You know, this is a situation where they There is a strong feeling that Congress needs to be able to get something passed before the election because this has become a nationwide problem and both in the economy and as a public health crisis.

Senate Judiciary committee, chairman Lindsey Graham is resuming an investigation of potential surveillance abused by the FBI with an expansive requests for records related to the bureau's vetting of the Steele dossier in a letter sent yesterday to attorney general William bar Graham, asked for all FBI and Justice department documents relating to investigators attempts to verify allegations made in the dossier, which was authored by former British. Spy, Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary campaign and the DNC the FBI relied heavily on steals report to obtain four intelligence surveillance act warns those are secret warns that the government gets against an American citizen, and this one was against former Trump campaign advisor Carter page Republicans investigated, whether the FBI misled the Pfizer court by relying on the dossier. Even though it's allegations about page were unverified. And as Michael issacov's has now said, mostly untrue. Then they asserted the FBI failed to tell surveillance court judges that Steele was working on behalf of the DNC and the Clinton campaign on an investigation of Donald Trump Graham also indicated in the letter that is investigating the FBI's decision to open up investigation of Trump campaign associates in two sixteen he said, the judiciary committee is concerned. Vetting proper vetting procedures and get this now. He said that right? And you said the judiciary committee is is concerned vetting proper vetting procedures. They need to vet the proper vetting procedures right because the vetting procedures probably weren't proper. So they need the vet the proper vetting procedures. This is sort of like checked the fact checkers, we need to vet the vetting and the full presentation of facts to the Pfizer court may not have occurred. With regard to the applications for the FIS a warrant and the opening of the underlying investigation and Carter page and other individuals. Associated with the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Yep. Yeah. I formerly open counterintelligence investigations on four km paint associates on July thirty first twenty sixteen. The first FIS against page was granted on October twenty first or twenty sixteen grams seeking all documents provided to the gang of eight in may of twenty eighteen regarding the Russia probe. He's also requesting that the so-called woods filed which would include any materials used to verify allegations against page included in the FIS, applications the dossier alleges page served as the Trump campaign back channel to the Kremlin. He also is accused of coming up with the idea of providing stolen DNC emails to Wiki leaks and meeting with through Kremlin insiders during a trip to Moscow in July of two thousand sixteen pages vehemently denied the allegations. He has testified to special counsel Robert Muller's grand jury, but has not been charged at all in the investigation. So there you go the dossier suffered a heavy blow last Wednesday when? Michael Cohen, the former Trump attorney undercut one of Steele's main collusion allegations Cohen denied under oath ever visiting Prague were steel alleges Cohen met with Russian hackers in two thousand sixteen so. Graham, also wants all documents with the Pfizer court relating to any FIS applications associated with Carter page or any other individuals on or so seated with Donald Trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign will he get them from bar. That's the question. New attorney general. I'll tell you that if he does not. We've got a massive massive situation on our hands. If bar acts the way essentially that sessions did. Then then it is time for the president to step in without any hesitation. Are. We the only ones I've ever asked this question. Were we probably haven't. But I I haven't heard anybody else asked the question, but as a right here pages, the only former Trump aide known to have been targeted with FIS awards. Then what were they unmasking? Right. Because what they were unmasking were conversations with more than just Carter page from what we're told right that we're told it was a number of individuals, and you couldn't how many unmasking total, and there could be repeated unmasking of any given individual. But it wasn't just one individual. Right. And so in order to unmask, your what's your unmasking is a conversation. Yes. You were able to get through a warrant. I've always wondered that is that is page only when we know about because how does it make sense that they? Because the UN ambassador was wasn't in the hundreds right? Our Samantha power that she supposedly unmasks would. She said I didn't do the masking their right? Those aren't mine. I didn't do it which means somebody else use her credentials to get in. There's hundreds of conversations they could have all been with Carter page. Nobody I've never seen where they said all the unmasking. I've seen unmasking of members of Trump campaign where you can only unmask something that a FIS award was able to get right. Yes. If it came from the intelligence agencies because if it was a criminal wiretap that you'd be getting that from the FBI you wouldn't be unmasking anything because he masking comes from the intelligence departments. Not a criminal Justice department. Right. Yes. Just a question. That's you know, we'll see. Remains to see how a bar will handle the document requests Republicans battled throughout twenty seventeen in two thousand eighteen with w tourney general rod Rosenstein who had final say a document production because he oversaw the special counsel's investigation. Republicans accuse Rosenstein of slow rolling, or during document requests, he is leaving the department of Justice in March. So in fact, he's leaving. I think next week. From what we were told mid-march and that would be well a week from tomorrow. He should have never been in that position to deny anything because as I guess he signed off on one of the applications for the wards. So the conflict of interest, right? Oh, I'm telling you. I mean that I just look a lot of people could lot of people in the left complaining about manafort's metaphor sentence yesterday. The only thing I want. There's nothing I can do about what a judge. What would a judge finally does? I just want the truth to come out say what you want about Manafort, whether it was whether it was just because whether would have happened if Muller would've ever got involved in it or not. But the fact is he did commit crimes, and he has been punished to the satisfaction of a federal judge who did the sentencing whether you agree with it or not. What was Hillary Clinton? We never even got her charged with clearly what was breaking the law. I would like to see that happen. I would like to see that that that everything that happened. There really got a fair hearing somewhere in our Justice system, and it never did. Right. And here all I want here. Somebody prosecuted later on that all I want us to truth. I wanna know what happened in two thousand sixteen while. With Email thing with Hillary. It never even got to the prosecutors level. No one ever did the FBI director, right? The the investigators essentially shut it down the investigators. Never let it get to the pro because they said remember the word and the words. On July fifth twenty sixteen no reasonable prosecutor. You're not a prosecutor. You're the director of the guy you're done hand it to a prosecutor and have that prosecutor make that decision. All I want is the truth here manafort's crime or outside of anything to do with an election. Right. All of these things here and all the possible crimes that we have discussed here all have to do with a presidential election. This. The American public should know. And I'll say it again to the president the American public should know because the president has said, well what he knows his top secret. The American public might not be able to handle. Sorry. Mr president. Don't treat us like children. Well, because you're gonna continue if you continue to play this game. Forget about the political negative political ramifications for the president. Possibly think about long term the risk for every citizen on the on the greater level. That's what we're talking. Yes. That's what I'm concerned about I want this. The the the political lives of those people are secondary. Compared to the American public knowing what happened in the two thousand sixteen election at after the twenty primarily I want to know what happened before the election and what they did. But primarily I want to see everything that happened after the election. How the Democrats if they how I believe they did because there's enough evidence to show that they did based on their admissions themselves. They tried to get it out to try to discredit the president. Right. We know that from Farkas who Evelyn Farkas said that already. So we're ready. No. That's the case that was their goal to strive to try to destroy the legitimacy of the two thousand sixteen election to put doubt in people's minds, and it was legit by spreading. The dossier which said the president, you know, cooperated with the colluded with the Russians hacked the election hacked, the DNC change outcome of the election and that was their goal to get that information out. So we know that's the case. I wanna know everything the American whatever happens afterwards happens whether it's a fair sentence or not I if somebody gets prosecuted through the process, I want the full accounting of what happened. So the American people can see it. Yes. And I don't want a democrat. And I don't want Republican telling me I can't handle it. And I shouldn't be able to see it, right? Right. Who's with me? Well, are we looking for Justice for the American people or political Justice for candidate? Right. Are we looking for the truth? That's what I want. I want to know what happened. If you're a true public servant. The only thing that matters is what what the American public what the effect on the American public is. I know Democrats don't want to know what happened.

"Okay. This is probably the incoming judiciary committee, chairman Lindsey Graham who also had this to say regarding the process itself. Number four. The let me tell you when it comes to this. You're looking for fair process. You came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend. There you have it. So that of Chelsea during the political nature of what's going on in Washington, right now, we're we're how many let's get the exact date of how many days away, we are from the midterm election. I think it's like forty four or forty five something like that. And then you've got all this playing up. There's a lot there. Yeah. Judiciary committee. There's been people keep saying I'd precedent. I think the way we're viewing it by its we've seen very nasty confirmation process before judge Bork Clarence Thomas ad break cabinet to that list. We've had some fairly bland confirmation processes, it'd be time as well not necessarily that the vote totals were so. So you, Dan. But not nearly as divisive you think about Roberts even Gorsuch to the Trump presidency. Keagan or these were again not. So it'd been a long time since we had this kind of war over supreme court nominee this public. But I will tell you this comes out to who has the votes. This will come out to and I think it's fair to say I play this sound bite. I think would Brett cavenaugh wit here yesterday getting criticism for the left, but I think you saw shift in the truth about the supreme court that there are people chosen by. Elected presidents from political parties by twenty four. This whole two week effort has been a calculated an orchestrated political hit fueled with a parent pent up anger about President Trump and the two thousand sixteen election fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside left wing opposition groups, this is a circus. The consequences will extend long pass my nomination. I think Brett cavenaugh laid it out. Probably what the case is. I mean, unfortunately, pretty American Republican are Republican for the people of this country. But I think he's I think he's exactly hit it. Right. Yeah. It's it's his judicial philosophy that they don't like on top of by the way, some of these some of these senators saying, I'm not voting for brick cabinet. They were never voting for breath. Right. No democrat on the Senate Judiciary committee, even kept open by Odaguard capital. So they were already decided second. And that was because they didn't like it judicial philosophy Lizzy grandma's nominees. Well qualified they should be confirmed and how most Republicans at operated like it or not. I think they'll Lindsey has said this will change. Yes. How he he approaches? These nominations. It's a wakeup call for Republicans. If they do retain the majority still AG court yet likely this could happen again once or twice if they take the bourgeoisie, they'd start acting tough for the Democrats because you see they got batted around by the minority party. Yes. Who has the has no power to make any decision requests, by the way after Dr porch. Desimone everybody said he's done before breath, Kevin Jansen speak. Everybody said he was finished. There was no way it was going to survive it. So that's really said that was the kind of the reaction this party to the Republican party could have had the vote already today. Basha begin to the American. They should have had that your view was at nine o'clock this morning. Yeah. The gavelled in at nine thirty J Jeff flake had already announced he was voting. Yes. Happen at nine thirty two. And here here's why Jay because ditch Senator flake had the courage to announce his position he was going to go take that vote. And then he got I mean, there's no other word for it. He got a cost it in the hallway by groups of protesters, and he's all over social media now with those people attacking ends, we sitting in the committee Renton room now being attacked for a vote that he already announced he's going to take in my view getting past about nine thirty two without casting. This vote was a disservice to him. I don't understand what's going on in the process, you're four hours to attack him. I mean, they they did it all they yesterday. The Democrats why give the board wartime? Did they're gonna go to the floor of the Senate and do it again do it again. So why this time why do Republicans have to act so absurd? It giving this time are they are they just out of touch. So you question whether it's. Understand the seriousness of how this is what this does to the people involved in the process these people, so like Pat Lahey who keeps his voice he says, the nastiest awful. I think the way that that prosecutor conducted things yesterday terminology that came out of her mouth was only to spear Brad Kavanagh the way she was a ridiculous. That was describing if it's already been executed move by the Republican's side. Finally stepped in led by Lindsey Graham because this was ridiculous. It was a ridiculous waste of time. It was disjointed and again, lack of strategy Harry. Absolutely. So I think if we take a step that back a no vote against judge Cavanaugh would legitimize a despicable approach to the advice and consent role of the United States Senate, the United States Senate in my opinion engaged in a ritual defamation of Brett cavenaugh that threatens everyone in the United States. If this case is judged on the basis of reason and on the basis of the evidence judge Cavanaugh will be confirmed. I think I think that's right. I mean, but but it's going to be very very close. I'm absolutely they how close are we talking fifty to forty eight. We're close fifty fifty and we have a tie. Probably. Yeah. That's probably about as wide margin. Is you're going to see Jay you've got Jeff flake saying that he's a yes, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski haven't yet. So that would suggest that you have forty eight Republicans. You know, Joe Donnelly's a no, look, I think this entire universe of. Yes votes. Jay is somewhere between forty eight and fifty two to anything between that margin. That's on the table. This is what Brett Cavanaugh had to say about those that were trying to attack and we played number twenty four. Let's go ahead and play number twenty since my nomination in July. There's been a frenzy on the left to come up with something anything to block my confirmation shortly after I was nominated the Democratic Senate leader said he would quote, a me with everything he's got a democratic Senator on this committee publicly referred to me as evil evil. Think about that word and said that those who supported me or quote complicit in evil, another democratic Senator. On this committee said quote, judge Cavin always your worst nightmare of former head of the Democratic National Committee said quote, judge cavenaugh.
