NBC's Kristen Welker on Improving Equity in the Newsroom
"Brought up something at that. Leads me to buy next topic. Which is diversity in newsrooms and you talked about one thing. That certainly affects that. Which is it pay journalism. It's rough for a long time. You know we. I definitely experienced for for many years but throughout your career. you know. you've been focused on improving newsroom diversity. And we've got a question from one of our each cure. Stacey her question is how does race inform the way you approach your work and i would also just follow up in and out onto say what do you wanna see. More of in order to improve equity in newsrooms. Well first of all. I think about andrea mitchell when you ask this question one of my mentors and what the newsroom looked like when she was here and how far we've come and i talked to her about this all the time. We have come so far from when you know she was. Maybe only one of two women in the dc bureau and now it is such an incredibly diverse place to work when you compare it to where she started our white house. Unit is mostly women. And that's something that were so incredibly proud of. We have a diversity in terms of race as well throughout all of mbc. And i think that. That's something that our president cesar conde has really put a focus on which makes me really proud to work at nbc. To answer the first part of your question though. Like how do i see myself. And how does race play a role in my journalism. I think that first of all. I mean i am a black woman. So i bring that sense and sensibility. That everything that i do. When i walk into work my goal is the same every day which is to make sure that i'm getting information and asking questions on behalf of the american people to give a voice to people who don't have a microphone who aren't sitting in the front row of the briefing room and so my goal doesn't change. I think that it's probably informed. In some instances by who i am how i grew up in the fact that i'm a black woman so for example and i go back to the talk question that i asked during the debate. A lot of people have asked me about that. How did you come up with that. Why did you ask that honestly. That question just came out of me got assigned the debate and then a couple of days later. I sat down and wrote that question. I read it to my husband. And i read it to my debate team with with whom i worked and you know we worked through it. We went through some different versions at some points. We even tossed it out by the way and i. It was really important to me to ask that question. So i was glad that i did. And i give that just as an example of one of the ways in which anyone could have asked that question. It was important for me to that question. I thought because a it was just within me. It was something that i really felt needed to be asked and i wanted to address the issue of race and equity really from like a different standpoint from the standpoint of the fact that so many families across the country see this moment as a moment of crisis and so. That's why i asked that question in that way. And and i do think that having a diversity of perspectives makes journalism

Democrats Continue March Toward Trump Impeachment
"Again to impeach President Trump. They say he triggered Wednesday's deadly riot, the capital, with this speech to a crowd of supporters, others asking if it's worth it. With just days left to his time in the Oval Office. They've already written an impeachment resolution. A single article for quote incitement of insurrection. Charging Trump with willfully inciting violence against the government by urging his followers to march to the capital, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy today, said quote impeaching the president with just 12 days left in his term will only divide our country. More President elect Biden says Impeachment is up to Congress but offered a different way to remove trump from power. Quickest way that that will happen is us being sworn in on the 20th.

Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'
"So we walked through how we got here. But it doesn't quite do justice to that queasy feeling you got when you saw people marching through the halls of congress and breaking down doors when you saw crowds of people cheerfully waving their flags from the capitol balcony. So i wanna bring. Abc's chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl and abc senior. National correspondent. Terry moran terry what did a day like. This mean for the united states of america. What do you take away from it. A dark day for the country and i think most people feel that way. This is one of those days that that that will remember and that will be remembered. I if it fades into the mist of history. I'll be surprised because it is something that's never happened this this mob. What does it mean it means. We got through this election. By the skin of our teeth they failed to attempt to obstruct the congress. This failed insurrection. Only underscores how crucial the task before us is for our republic. Joe biden one. Absolutely no doubt about that. But if we're not for the person of mike pence and mitch mcconnell maybe in a couple of other people you know. This mob might have represented the end of the democracy. That's what they wanted. They wanted to stop the certification counting of electoral votes certified by fifty states and give the election to their guy donald trump. Nobody knows what the hell is going on. There's never been anything like this. We will not let them. Silence your voices. we're not gonna let it happen one thing. I was struck by the chance. Fight for trump fight for trump not fight for america. This is a movement in our country and it reached a terrible bloody apex at the cap. Very jonathan karl. I mean you were keeping track of of not just congress not just washington but like inside. The white house has a switch flipped in washington when it comes to how people see the president and his his mission here. My sense is that we are looking at the end of the trump era. All i can say as count me out. Enough is enough of tried to be helpful. I think you saw a moment here. Where donald trump after a string of losses that led to this day loss on november third the losses in in georgia and the senate races in good conscious object to the certification of these electors not to mention the override of of of the veto. That happened On on new year's day You know the president has has seen a a series of things that haven't happened throughout his presidency. Which is losses at the hands of republicans. If you vote to overturn these elections. Wouldn't it be the opposite of what states rights. Republicans have always advocated for them. This would do m- the electoral college forever. And there were certainly a lot of speculation. i think we we had spoken about the possibility of donald trump going back to mar-a-lago and mounting a comeback or at least becoming a kingmaker in the republican party. I after yesterday to those who wreaked havoc in our capital. Today you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins and this is still the people's house. I don't really think donald trump As republican kingmaker is is a likely scenario after after january. Six or after january twentieth. Does it go beyond that jump. Because you know you heard terry talking about mitch. Mcconnell in even mike pence these forces that were kind of constraining president trump. But how far could that go. I mean what kind of constraints could we see. On president trump going forward. It turned out that it was not his orders that got the national guard into washington. Dc you've got people resigning out from under him overnight. Essentially saying were sickened by all this. And now we're even giving talk about like the twenty fifth amendment. Is that a serious possibility. I there is We we have confirmed. There have been members of the cabinet. Who have had conversations about the twenty fifth amendment that would be effectively removing the president because he is mentally incompetent mentally unable to do the job. those conversations are happening and they're happening not just among the cabinet where it's relevant but also among The president's allies some of the president's allies on capitol hill But that's a. That's a really steep climb. That is an extraordinary thing. You would need in a vice. President can submit a declaration to congressional leaders saying the president is unfit for the job. The president now can contest that and if the vice president and cabinet persist that would lead to a vote in congress but that has never happened before under circumstances such as these now. That's a real long shot. But it just gives you a sense of where we're at and how how worried people very close to donald trump are that those conversations are in fact happening. I'm sure that there are responsible members of the cabinet. Who right now are thinking about. What are their obligations under the oath that they took. And they're not thinking about those things they should be dairy whose complicit in what we just saw i mean you know. I think that's the question that it's going to be weighing on a lot of people going forward here is. Is it enough to say. I condemn violence. But i do believe this. Election was a sham with without any evidence whatsoever like what are the legacies of essentially everyone else in washington stemming out of these events well i think as senator ben sasse republicans nebraska put. It lies have consequences. America isn't hatfields and mccoys. Blood feud forever. america's union. There are a lot of reasons to vote for donald trump. There are lots of reasons to vote against joe biden or against hillary clinton but to tell the american people lies That the election was stolen by some combination of software companies Hugo chavez out of the grave and i don't know the bigfoot that has consequences and to stir it up and drive people to the point of you're telling people they're stealing your country from you. They're stealing your country. They're going to take your guns and they're gonna. They're gonna slaughter babies and kidnap them and put them in a file rings and all the rest of it to wind people up like that. What do you think is going to happen seriously. Especially under the leadership of donald trump. Who has a gift for bloody language as a gift for stirring people up. But we're going to try and give our republicans the weak ones because strong winds. Don't need any of our help. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country he's in march to the capitol and he said show you aren't gonna win by weakness it takes strength. Be strong up there. You know that whole rhetoric of of brutishness in violence and the fist is is the real power anybody who went along with that and plenty. Did the american people may very well judge you to be complicit but i would just say. I'm not as sanguine as john about this is all over. You know these kinds of movements sometimes take fuel from an event like this a lot of republicans. Now have a taste for this kind of this kind of politics. Look what happened in the house. Some of the people who breach the capital today we're not trump supporters. They were masquerading as trump supporters. And in fact were members of the violet. Terrorist group antifa more than half of house. Republicans voted to nullify the election after after the mob attacked the capital. That tells you that. I think this is a long way from being dead.
McConnell rejects GOP challenge to election results in blistering Senate speech

Thousands storming the capital after a rally with president trump during which he urged them to march on the capital where joint session of congress was debating and working to certify the election as our democracy dictates.

And if he doesn't that will be a sad day for our country but finally after more than four years of unfailing loyalty mike pence broke with donald trump. The moment caught on a hot mike. Asthma penta statement was blunt. I do not believe that. The founders of our country intended to invest the vice president with unilateral authority to decide which electoral votes should be counted. Senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell broke with the president to telling his sharply divided republican colleagues that this election must stand voters courts and the states have all spoken. They've all spoken if we overrule them. It would damage our republic forever. Our democracy would enter a death. Spiral mcconnell was blunt. The president did not come close to proving his false claims. He said and he sharply criticized the thirteen republican senators who planned to challenge the election results. It would be unfair and wrong. Disenfranchise disenfranchise american voters overrule the courts and the states on this extraordinarily fan basis an hour.

"Michigan certified its results next week today, President Trump some in the state legislatures, Republican leaders to the White House.

Giuliani peddles election conspiracy theories and falsehoods.
"Georgia audit now. Complete the hand count of nearly five million votes reaffirming biden the winner. The first democratic presidential candidate to win the state in nearly thirty years. There was news today about michigan as well where the president lost by about one hundred and forty eight thousand votes. we've now learned. The president has called hit called republican officials in wayne county home to detroit and michigan an eleventh-hour attempt to invalidate votes president trump calling on state. Republicans sleep tonight on your side. History will be on your side. You're conscious side and more knows when you go to meet your maker. Your soul is going to be very very war that along with legal challenges playing out in several states and a public campaign. Alleging voter fraud without evidence here to break it down for us. Chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl jonathan. It is hard to know where to begin with all of the legal challenges that seem to spin each day. Let's backtrack just a little bit in michigan. With the on again off again certification of votes by canvassers in wayne county and the president reaching out to state leaders. Where does all the stand well You know the the these two republican members of the canvassing board had. I said that they were not going to certify the election and they said they agreed to certify it and then we we learned that the president called them directly. You imagine that you are a local local official on a canvassing board In wayne county michigan and your phone rings and it's donald trump the president of the united states. So it's quite a bit of you know it's quite a bit of leverage with president has and he talked to them but the bottom line is they have certified. It's hard to see out. There are no kind of take back. So we accept the wayne county certification just as we accepted every one of our eighty three counties certification as it was properly made in public vote in public meeting And now moving forward and calling on the board of state canvassers to do the same now. The president is also going to be reaching out in meeting with the republican leaders of the state legislature in In michigan Bringing them to the white house for a meeting and this as his legal team is suggesting that maybe the direction they want to go is to go directly to state legislatures to essentially overrule. How their states voted And to send their own electors to the electoral college. American democracy cracked last night. But it didn't break michelle. I gotta say it's it's a it's a crazy idea. It's basically it's talk of nullifying in election. And i and i should point out that even though these republican leaders From michigan or to meet with the president They have both been on record saying that. That is not the way. It works in michigan state. Legislature doesn't simply you know. Look the other way and not do something on its own in the face of what happened On election day but yet here we are and in terms of all of this is any of its seen as any type of interference. We've got a president a sitting president as well as a candidate in an election. Making phone calls as well as meeting with people that are involved directly with the election. Well there's a lot of strange activity is ranging a lot of questions and we also had a One of i think probably the most bizarre press conference. I've ever seen tied to a president. Good afternoon and thank you. Very much for coming guiliani. And the president's legal team held a press conference at the republican national committee headquarters in washington that you know. Frankly i i. I really don't know how to describe it as the except to say it was unhinged and what emerged very quickly is because it's not a singular voter fraud in one state. This pattern repeats itself in a number. Isn't there was vast conspiracy talk. President trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it and there was a conspiracy that included a the clinton foundation. That could have been mickey mouse. That could have been a dead person even a mention of hugo chavez who died i don't know i think about seven years ago. These people were further away than my cousin. Vinny was from witnessed. They couldn't see a thing. It would vary very strange. Strange press conference the real thing you need to know though. Is that the legal cases that have been brought by the by. The trump team are going nowhere. They have lost over and over again and they've been forced to withdraw lawsuits while there quickly running out of time on this and so with where we're at with this giuliani and his briefing in the president. Set to meet with people today from those canvassers in that area where republicans at what's the endgame. Republicans for the most part are saying that the president should be allowed to pursue his legal challenges. A as far as they may go to be proof but they're also not for the most part repeating these crazy allegations and privately. They're saying that they know the president's laws have you seen that. I haven't seen proof yet. How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition remained stalled. Well look. We've you've heard the projections projections. Are that if nothing fundamentally changes between now and beginning february we're like to lose up to four hundred total of four hundred thousand lives and other one hundred fifty thousand lives but of course we're in the middle of the national health crisis we're in the middle of a pandemic and the world doesn't stop. Stir president-elect what do you think the president is doing. What are americans witnessing here. We choose my words think. They're witnessing an incredible irresponsibility credibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions. And i think it is and because of the president's refusal to acknowledge What happened in the election. Well i don't know his motive. But i just think it's totally irresponsible. The team of president elect now biden is not getting the briefings. They're not coordinating with the warp speed team on the vaccine. All all the things that are going to have to be carried out by the biden administration They've been stonewalled by by the president's refusal to accept the election

Trump and Biden offer starkly different views of the pandemic during dueling events
"American voters heard from President Trump and former vice president joe. Biden this week in separate town halls. This after a head to head debate was cancelled when the president refused to take part in a virtual event. Biden. On ABC from Philadelphia, the President in Miami on another network ABC's Mary Bruce covers it all the candidates not face to face, but still fighting from afar offering contradicting vision how to lead the country out of this pandemic. With masks. But I've heard many different stores masks I wanNA president doesn't wear a mask or makes fun of folks like me when I was wearing a mask for a long time then. People say well, it must be that important. President. Trump says he and the country are on the mend even with cases on the rise, we have done an amazing job and. It's rounding the corner and we have the vaccines coming and we have to therapies coming. But Joe Biden said the president failed the American people he said he didn't tell anybody because he was afraid Americans would panic is a presidential responsibility to lead and he didn't do that. He didn't talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying in my view about the stock market the President on defense I knew it. Was a big threat at the same time. I don't WanNA panic this country I don't want to go out and say everybody's going to die the most shocking moment of the night trump refusing to denounce the fringe conspiracy group Cunanan, which baselessly believes Democrats are satanic pedophile ring that only trump can stop. I. Know Nothing about it I do know they are very much against pedophilia they fight it very hard but I, know nothing. You do now I don't know new I don't know on the Supreme Court the President who's running as a pro life conservative wouldn't say if he wants Roe versus Wade overturned, it would be inappropriate. Just say right now while Biden, still refused to give a straight answer on whether he supports expanding the Supreme Court but he's promising one soon saying voters have a right. To know even as eighteen million, Americans have already cast their ballot. No matter what answer I gave you if I say it, that's the headline tomorrow. It won't be about what's going on. Now the improper way they're proceeding voters have a right to know where they do have a right to know they're standing I'll have a right to know where I stand before they vote. So you'll come out with a clear position before election. Yes. Depending on how they handle this both candidates also addressing issues of racism and how they plan to bring the country together I'll say it loud and a very proud of it. And I have a great relationship because what I've done with the African American community. I'm very proud of it. The president who refused to disavow white supremacy at the first debate grew visibly frustrated when asked why he hesitated to do so. Each every time but people can I'm sure they'll ask you the white supremacy question I denounce white supremacy. Tell you one thing if I'm elected president, you will not hear me race baiting. Dividing you trying to unify cedric humphry pushing Biden on whether he's taking the black vote for granted besides you ain't black. What do you have to say to young black voters who see voting for you as further participation in a system that continually fails to protect them if young black women and men vote, you can determine the outcome of this election not a joke.

As a wise, man, once said, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not their own fax words have power and words have consequences. Joe and I are honored to be joined today by award winning author and chief White House correspondent for the New York Times. Peter Baker Peter is covered four presidents, as a reporter, President Trump and Obama for the New York Times, and George W Bush, and Bill Clinton for the Washington Post, he is also the author of five books, including Obama, the call of history, days of fire Bush and Cheney in the White House and inside the impeachment and trial of William Jefferson Clinton, Peter Baker, welcome to words matter extra for sure. Joe since you and Peter have history together. The White House press room will let you lead off today is so long turn the tables on here. This is this is going to be hard this bad. I wanna talk about your book, you wrote if not the but one of the most definitive books on the Obama presidency in the upside down world of Donald Trump, he had to go back at it and. Kind of writing new version of it based on what happened after you know, in the last year. I'm most interested in both contemporaneous. We and then looking back how they handled Russia, and how they handled the election. And I think interference and meddling. He's talking about words, mattering, if we'd called it, something more sinister. Yeah. The beginning. I think that's this might have turned out different way. But let's call it interference right? Yeah. No, that's look. That's the thing about presents. Right. They look different year after they leave office in two years, and five years, ten years, and we're constantly reevaluating them President Clinton your president. Look different in two thousand one he look different two thousand eight two thousand sixteen every time you know they were still political arena, but we were reevaluating his presidency and his place in history. And that's certainly true. I think for President Obama's heart. Not look at President Obama through the prism of President Trump. They probably both hate that, but they are linked together in some ways, I think in history because they're so opposite there. So. So much the, the all Star Trek episode, where you had the, the two aliens who are the exact opposites of whatever and Trump has made so much of his tenure about undoing the Obama presidency that you can't evaluate that ministration without seeing what follows, so I think that that was when we used to go back and do the book and the first version with a picture book coffee table book. So the text let's face it. Nobody reads the text of picture book, that's not the point. That's not why you buy it. So we took the taxed and then blew it out and doubled. It almost in Incisa it like a regular book for a new audience. I wanted to ask about the how the twenty sixteen election impacted President Obama's relationship with secretary Clinton because in the book and you talk about that election night, and how Odom a handle debt and some of the conversations he had with secretary Clinton in the wake of the election. And, and on that evening. And you say that Obama blamed Clinton who quote brought many of her troubles on herself and ran a quote scripted Solis campaign. Can you talk a bit about how the election impacted the relationship between Obama Clinton? I think the prisoner is people were understandably perhaps a little defensive about what happened in the election was this, their fault in some way, both because of the Russia thing, did they do enough on Russia. And then largely, you know, if your presidency is successful, why would it lead to something like Donald Trump? If you Brock Obama, it's a natural question to ask, and I think that they look that it's a way to second. You guys are putting the finger us. But how about the candidates she's the one who was out there in, in Las we were on the ballot and you know, it was kind of a corporate campaign, that Hillary Clinton ran in some ways, they pull tested or focused tests. I think something like eighty five slogans before ending up with, you know, stronger together. And I think that it's not surprising to see a president who's frustrated by the outcome of election expressing that about the candidate. Again, Bill Clinton Al Gore, had this out in the final days of of their presence. He after gore loss and Clinton thought he squandered, what was a pretty good record. So I don't know. That it's personal. I don't think that there's any animosity there. But I think that there are certain defensiveness on the part of, of the people who were leaving the White House about why it was their party lost. Yeah. It's, it's interesting that you bring up Clinton and gore because I think there's two different dynamics, but with the same result, I mean, I think Bill Clinton thinks that Al Gore ran away from him and his record and that hurt him. It's one of these things where in both of these cases, you can argue because it was so close, you can put any one variable. That say boy Bill Clinton had been in Florida that last weekend, he certainly would have gotten seven hundred more votes. Or. But with Hillary Clinton, I think she was running in some ways as I'm the third term there were differences. She, you know, distance herself from TPP, which was a political decision. I, I don't think that helped her much, but maybe the knock you waited her on some of the trade stuff. But how much do you think Obama still ruminates this on Hilary's failure? I know that a lot of his staff everything you row ranked true from what I've heard from the staff, Iowa obviously not talk to President Obama about it. It didn't come up at the closing didn't come up with the closing. Thank you. Thank you for that. We'll do a special show on that next week. Chose real estate. The latest the help. Start asking much harder. Question this keeps up, but do you think this is something that you know, should pick them off for a week? And then you've done, or is he caught in the, which I think Clinton was for President Clinton furrow for a while. The real you know, kind of what I'd call political depression of look what they've done to what I felt. Yeah. It's a great question and hard and Harmon answer. Because unlike President Clinton, I don't think President Obama shares a lot of his internal life with even with people who are close to him and his staff. There are moments which I thought was interesting. We learned about in the days after the election when he talked with Ben Rhodes and others and tried to sort of put this in history. Right. How does this happen in effect? And he seemed to go through as they describe any way, kind of multiple stages of grief right, anger denial and I don't know if we got to acceptance or not sometimes, I think I came along twenty years too early said at one point did we push too hard? I don't hear him from his aides description anyway wonder why. He dating wrong and presence often don't, I'm not sure he says during regrets doing healthcare, or regrets, you know, his policy on Syria or the Iran deal, or something like that. I think it's natural for him to smart. Guys, awful guy to try to understand why it is that America would pick not once but twice the first African American president of the Asli progressive leader and then turn so radically to the other side, some not, not somebody who's different ideologically. That's kind of normal after eight years, but somebody who literally denied President Obama's right to have the job. The whole birther conspiracy theory that Trump was out there promoting. And so, I think I think troubles in my I think, I think it troubles because it's hard not to look at that and say, I did all this. I worked so hard. We, we made so much progress and to watch sort of unravel has to be painful, but in public anyway, and even I think, in private with his aides he tries to zen approach this, too shall pass histories eggs, and then zags we're in Zagreb. Now but will zig back. But I'm looking forward to his book, which we're still waiting for right? Because you coughed. I'm taking the next question, it'd be cough again. You have to leave fell. Many real so many, there's new there's there's new rule show. I like timely humor. It doesn't have to be funny, but it's timely on Obama. The thing that really intrigues me and I wish you know, there were certain you know, this better or at least as well as I do that there were days that I wish Bill Clinton didn't share, much of his, his inner thoughts of people around him who they would share them with you. But the, the whole birther thing is the thing that intrigues me because it really does go to the woods Chitimia of Obama as a leader in essay, historical figure in both the United States in the world. I'd love to figure out how far into your head. He got, you know, through him and around him on that particular got into I think Trump got into his head, I do, and he's very careful about not trying to characterize at least publicly opposition to him. As race based not that you denied it. But he just didn't want that to be the defining characterization of his presence. He didn't want to be the first black president. He wanted to be the first president who happened to be black. Right. He didn't want to be president of black America. You want to be president of all America, it diminishes him if he's defined entirely by race. And therefore, I think he thought it diminished him as well if he complained about the opposition to him being based on race, although obviously part of it was, but in private. And again, we get this through through Ben Rhodes who I thought provide a window in which we had not seen before we had a conversation with president bowel points. What why do you think people are so strongly opposed you? He says, because I think my election, drove some white people crazy. And he'd never said that in public. It was interesting to hear him say that in private. He in fact, does, of course, not surprisingly see some of the option particularly President Trump as based on race. And the birther thing clearly gone is my one day. He's back at home in Chicago during his presidency is rummaging through boxes, and the adequate, Ernie finds a sort of. Hospital your baby born Khanna, like handout, certificates that they give a new mom from Hawaii when his when he was born and he brought it back to the White House when he gets back to wash a see what I got here guys. Look what I found. And of course, didn't prove anything, really, it's not a legal document. But it led him to say let's get the actual long form verse to go and put it out there and Joe power..

"Chief White House correspondent Jonathan. Karl congresswoman Alexandria Cossio. Cortes of New York is here for her first Sunday show interview since taking office congressman welcome to this week. Thank you for joining us, Chris. Thank you for having me. So what you said, you watch that whole interview play out. Does this change the calculus on impeachment? I think every day that passes the pressure to impeach growth. And I think that it's justifiable, I think the evidence continues to come in, and I believe that with the president now saying that he is willing to break the law to win reelection. That, that goes that transcends partisanship. It transcends party lines. And this is now about the rule of law in the United States of America. There's a new poll out this morning and BBC news that shows significant growth in democratic support for impeachment and the survey was done before Georgia's interview Pelosi though speaker Pelosi is really held her line on this house that flying with progressives. I think for me this question has should not be about polls. It should not be about elections. I think that, that impeachment is, is incredibly serious. And this is about the presence in evidence at the president may have committed a crime in this case more than one. And so, I believe that, that our decision on impeachments should be based in our constitutional responsibilities and duties, and not in elections or polling that being said with the increase in polls, I think the American people are now recognizing. In, in a much broader scale the depth and the severity of the misconduct coming out of the White House and a demand to protect our institutions and protect the rule of law in the United States, and at least opening an inquiry into into possible misconduct. So how real is that progressive frustration that speaker Pelosi said, at least so far, she seems to be really holding the line that she's not ready to do that. I think it's quite real. I believe that there is a very real. Animus and desire to make sure that we are that, that we are holding this president to account what have you told her about this? Well, you know, I think we come together as a caucus, and we have these conversations and those as, as this bigger likes to say they are family conversations. There are ones that are held in confidence. But I do believe that. That this is truly again. And I've said this publicly said it privately, I've said it when we subpoenaed, the attorney general and secretary Ross today on the census. I mean this week on the census that this is about the rule of law, and we have to make sure that we that we are holding this president account is holding government to account forty one freshman Democrats that are in seats that were held by Republicans. And from everything I've seen virtually all of them. These are your majority makers all of them oppose moving forward with impeachment. I, I would disagree with that assessment. I think that some of these dynamics are changing, I would never, I would very much not say, all of them are opposed to impeachment. I think many of them are extraordinarily concerned about the misconduct coming out, and I I it really you have to look at the process. There is opening an impeachment inquiry. There's the impeachment voted self ROY there may be some that are out on the impeachment vote itself. But I think that there is a growing sentiment. Even among many of these frontliners has we call them swing district. Democrats think we should at least open an inquiry and look into the abundance of evidence, ten counts of -struction of Justice four with rock, solid evidence. We have violations of the emoluments clause, we need to at least open an inquiry so that we can look at what is going on. And that is what opening an impeachment inquiry means, isn't there a risk, and I take your point about not wanting to do this for politics, politics, very real here. If even if. If you open the inquiry, there's a vote, the president is impeached, obviously would still have to be convicted in the in the Senate with a supermajority that's not going to happen. Right. So, don't you risk handing him a political victory here? So there's a couple of scenarios here one, there's always the possibility that you open impeachment inquiry, and it does not result in a referral that we opened the inquiry victory. Look at everything, though, I think that this is about us doing our jobs. And if we're talking about what's going to be victory for Trump and what's not gonna be victory for Trump. Then we are politicizing and we are tainting this process, which should again should be removed from politics that being said, Lindsey Graham himself, set, a very low bar for impeachment in nineteen ninety eight nine in the late nineties with the impeachment of Bill Clinton. That impeachment did not result in a vote by the Senate. But I think for us what we need to really realize. Are we doing our job as a member? Of the house, and the Senate has their entire responsibility. Mitch McConnell has over one hundred bills. He hasn't brought election security to his feet. And let's not forget that he's involved in this mess to his, his wife. Transportation secretary Elaine Chao just was revealed by the New York Times for having a whole web of potential conflict of interest, and as it relates to bringing projects to Kentucky as well. I mean, there's a whole other separate set of issues in the Senate. But I think we need to be concerned with our job in the house. They will be right back after this from our ABC stations. This is the sound of.

And I want to set you up here with some context, which is Lindsey Graham who is known recently to be quite supportive of many things. The president does I wanna play for you this and then get your reporting, which is the kind of blowback Donald Trump was already getting on this policy from Republicans. Take a listen. I do know this that in this war. You will not win it by quit by giving up. This is an akin to surrendering. We can be successful only if we partner with others this undercuts that effort we've got two choices to fight this war in their backyard. Our backyard, and ISIS and f- ghanistan. I know for sure. Is looking toward the United States in their target sits Mr President, you have a chance to change course. You have a lot of bipartisan support to do. So take advantage of it. Alex. Well, listen, we know we already have our hearing from Senator Graham, not just on those issues are on that. But on the resignation the the ousting of secretary Jim Mattis, given that several Senator Graham says now, it is with great sadness. He has been informed of this resignation this retirement. However, you want to phrase it, let me let me tick through those some new reporting pieces of information that we have for you. So senior White House official says the secretary Mattis came here to the White House this afternoon, I'm told that it was scheduled for right around three thirty. I don't know that that's quite right. Because that's when the farm Bill signing was, but my guess is already that. That's why the president was so delayed to that farm Bill signing. So the secretary came here, he told the president that he would be leaving the administration on February twenty eight and I believe that at that point secretary Mattis also handed Donald Trump that resignation letter. And then they had a what was phrased to me as a difference of opinion. Right. Not just over the course of some months as we all know about. But in. Of course of this meeting, those differences of opinion came up. Now, this official would not say specifically did not know of Syria, for example, or Afghanistan or pick your issue came up and was one of those topics. But obviously the two it sounds like did have a discussion about where they simply don't see eye to eye. I gotta tell you secretary of Madison's resignation letter is extraordinary. It is a a shotgun blast aimed directly into the Oval Office. Who if the president did in fact read that in front of Jim Mattis, you can imagine that he was not thrilled to be doing that given that Mattis called him out for turning away allies and embracing traditional adversaries like Russia, like China, very specifically saying that you need a secretary of defense views are better line with yours as you can see right there. It some of that to you. Because I want to get more of your nails on that as well as anything you can you can tell us from your reporting about the shutdown tonight. And this is breaking news. We don't all have all that up on the screen. But I think folks can follow it as I say what the secretary told Donald Trump to his face in this letter after what what what we've been told us announcing. I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous our approach to countries whose interests are increasingly intention with ours. And then he named checks two of them. It's clear China and Russia wanna shape world consistent with their authoritarian model the Tel thority over other Nations Security decisions to wrote their own interests Halley are and let me just actually say one thing. So I said the word thing, I shouldn't have said that that's not the word that I want rocketing around the internet live television. I think that based on what you're seeing letter. This was much more Jim Madison. I'm good. I've had enough. Here's your attributing that to you. Chuck earlier Colonel Jacobs said Mattis would serve until he's done serving which is right. His view based on his professional leadership. I understand you're not. Firming that from the White House right now, walk us through just work through to the rest of that..

Maybe a day or two before on election day itself. The Trump clan you come through. Of course, I'm headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is a key state. So I had the Trump plan on a regular basis on election day itself. It was like two oh five. Donald Trump junior was gonna come on. It's election day. He comes on about two calls and I picked up the hotline we talk a little bit. And he says to me, you know, Bill. My dad could have won this. And I said, what do you mean, you say, well, we didn't have Walker in Wisconsin didn't have case again, Ohio didn't have Bush in Florida. I just had a sense that we could have won this thing about three or four hours later. I got a text from him saying that it's worse than we thought the exit. Polling is terrible. And we're going to lose Ohio by eight points gonna lose Florida by five and I said, well, you know, just what can I say, good luck? You ran a good race by nine thirty. I get a text that says. Doll catches car. What we do. Did you have a sense that the Bush family, I'm sorry that Trump family, not the Bush Bush families on my mind, but the Trump family did not believe including the president never gonna win the election. They did not they they thought they had a chance they thought that they had a punchers chance if you will. And I I write in the book about election night, and that exact process that they went through and that some of their Trump supporters in key states, like Florida, I talk about Susie wild to that don't believe the exit polls. I think Florida's winnable don't give up as a matter of fact, I talk in the book how Don jR, and Eric were deployed to get on every radio show. They could in the handle, right? Try to Trump supporters. Don't despair get out there. It's not over. And as the number started coming in from Florida than North Carolina and elsewhere as the evening progressed starting at about nine thirty things looked better and better internally. It wasn't obvious at the network level. Although I counted the book about ten twenty that evening. I was one of the first if not the first network reported to say in Trump Tower, they are beginning to see this thing turn. Inning and see not one not stupid, maybe three paths to victory. So. But one thing I say in the book about President Trump and candidate Trump is he has a very deep sense. I've got instinct, and he thought he had a chance. And he didn't necessarily believe the exit poll numbers were the true reflection of what was going to happen as the numbers and turn out came through because he saw the crowds. And he has a very NHL sense of what this movement is. And how people responded to him. So did they predict it? No, did I predict it not at all. They thought they had some kind of a chance. But as I recount the book, just as you did when those first exit poll numbers came in. There was some places like oh boy. Well, the county it came back to me the other night. I'm watching what's happening in Macron's France and Macron was elected the forty percent of the vote or communist and the other forty percent were like Nazi types character over the countryside was very unhappy. They had the left and the right wing was like forty percent of the electorate, and I'll look back over the past ten years. I contend the main reason that Barack Obama one was there was a sense. He was an outsider he beat Hillary. We wanted something different. And then I had a sense in two thousand sixteen that Trump is the ultimate outsider. We didn't want Jeb. We didn't want Hillary Glenn again. And when I see going on in France that middle class Americans are like rebelling at seven dollars a gallon gasoline, and there was a rebellion against the status quo with the Bush and the Clintons back and forth. And that's why Obama was elected. And that's why Trump is going to be elected. And then in twenty twenty. God knows what's going to happen. But can you tell me major Garrett? Why do you think it happened? What wasn't on election week election day twenty sixteen that caused it to happen when it was completely unpredicted by all the experts? Well, what I say in the book is there a couple of big issues. One that's idea of an outsider the ultimate outside or someone who really stood a score politics wasn't not just a Clinton or Bush. But someone who said, you know, I dealt with politicians on both right and left them both checks. I know how the system works crime. I'm not that that gave Donald Trump kind of credibility that literally nobody else could talk to the sense that he was self made his supporters believed and that he could not be bought. I can't tell you. How often Bill I heard that during the two thousand sixteen campaign, which I started covering in twenty fifteen I tended more than seventy five Trump rallies. And I talked to these people at every rally I went to to get the perspective. Learn what they had to say that was a big part of it not only outsider, but couldn't be bought the book. Also that there was a sense in Washington for the entire conversation. Our country by immigration was settled, guess what it wasn't. It wasn't settled. No, Donald Trump had a very different message. Most Republicans and Democrats in Washington DC thought about and talked about immigration, and that as resonant as anything else, he said touched a chord, and I write in the book, if you don't agree with Donald Trump's policies on immigration, you better understand. But there are lots of Americans who do and if you wanted different set of policies, you better figure out a way to talk to those people and get them on your side. Because if you don't we they're going to be just immigration standstill over the policies that Donald Trump campaigned on. And it's done every single thing. He said he would do to enforce are gonna remain here. I think that was a big part of that twenty sixteen conversation. Major Garrett I'm in the mid west you travel, the whole country. I guess in the southeast southwest is a bigger issue. I don't see the Democratic Party over the next several weeks capitulating and giving him his five billion dollars for the wall. Because the base of the Democratic Party would like rebel. They don't want that. So I think this immigration issue is going to continue to be Yuejin twenty twenty am I wrong. I think that's the best way to think about it until there's a dramatic shift and one part of that is going to be resolved in the next couple of weeks one way or the other because we have to fund the government. No one's going to have a perpetual government shutdown over wall funding, but there's probably going to be a day or two or so maybe longer, and there's gonna be some push and shove, and then some give and take it. What's the dollar amount? Gonna be how is it defined for border security, all that is subject to negotiation. But this issue is not going to go away. I totally agree with you. And the other thing in twenty twenty alongside immigration, and it was important in two thousand sixteen higher chapter devoted to it. In the book, what happened to the supreme court because Donald Trump was elected president. What's happened to the federal bench because he is president and the future of the supreme court, whether it's Donald Trump reelected or somebody else also going to be an enormous part of the twenty twenty conversation. I'm like a normal God fearing American, and the reason I voted for Trump wasn't the tweets. I don't support him now because of some of his. Anger toward his political opponents, three reasons one is immigration to is the court system and three is the economic economic system in America, which I think despite the market being in the crapper is a positive with Trump there, and that's not going to change and to me as an attorney, you know, my wife's senior judge of the high court of appeals. And I want a court system that reflects the values of people like myself, and I saw no hope of that happening in Cavanaugh Cavanaugh, and you spend quite a bit of time on the ups and downs the whole cabinet nomination. And like every day was like a month. Wasn't it every day the one week that was a month? And there are times when other parts of the Trump White House feel that way or the Trump experience feel that way. I have an entire chapter called ten days. In may the first day James Comey was fire. And then everything that transpired since and the next nine days and Bill tell you this. I've had White House correspondents who work right alongside me at the White House. Rather networks are big newspapers did the stories covered L. The stuff they've come up to me and said reading that chapter major. I forgot half of what happened and I wrote about it. I covered it. And I forgot about it is this pace and velocity of things under the Trump era are sort of dizzying, and that's one of the reasons Bill, I must tell you. I wrote the book sort of have a place where everyone could go to find facts journalism. Everything is on the record in the book. No one has assailed anything in the book about the White House. Not anybody, and I'm proud of that because these times needs something that you can rely on that you can verify and itself thera five. That's why there's no blind quotes in my book. Everyone's on the record for that reason. It's like drinking from a fire hose that the Bush presidency at least Bush forty three the first two or three years were unbelievable. But things even doubt Obama was no drama Obama and right now, the dramatic events happening or like unbelievable like like every few days and God help us when Muller issues a report later this month or in January what? What the hell is going to come of that? I mean, and I think probably the Trumpster did commit some financial crime at some point in his life owning thousand company he's gonna do something wrong at some point. But that's going be a launching pad for impeachment. And did you think this? Let me ask you this major Garrett. Did you think Trump's gonna be impeached? I don't because you have to have. Well, right. So so what does that mean does that mean a peach and removed from office? No, I it's it's possible. Possible. I would put it at maybe ten or fifteen percent, no more than that. Based on what we know now on the inclination of incoming House Democratic majority that they would go down that road articles of impeachment and vote on. But if they were asked me a trial in the Senate and the threshold is unreachable. It wouldn't happen. Absent a kind of revelation that is so striking. So. So absolutely gasping do seeing that the political system comes to a fundamentally different interpretation of the motives, and means of this presidency than it has so far that seems highly highly unlikely to me, I do think that there's going to be very serious oversight from the Democrats are gonna ask a lot of pesky questions. The president. I know in the process now is trying to lawyer up the White House in the counsel's office to get ready for that. There's gonna be some some battle royale is about what the president's intentions war. What's people who work for him did or didn't do? And it's going to be hard in that environment is the president said the day after the election to move legislation forward. He said it's one or the other either you investigate me all we do deals. We're not going to do both. Right. That's sort of an operative dynamic as we looked at twenty nineteen major Garrett CBS news..

Harry's with major Garrett from CBS news chief White House correspondent major. I swear to goodness. You are so on you are so why do you work mostly in Washington pretty much down and watching right? Well, if you come to New York career Washington started in nineteen ninety so I've been here ever since. God bless you, man. I tell you what you're more than welcome to go to Hoboken, New Jersey. Baby come on when you're when you're ready make you what happened. This out together. I am. So we it will make news in Hoboken, baby. I I may I was if you go major I will sing fly meeting with the piano player dean on areas. We'll actually it could be ugly. But it'll be fun nonetheless bait major Garrett. Hey, Mr. Trump's while rides the name of majors book, and before we get there, a major if I May President Bush lying in state at the rotunda. All good it worked out what happened yesterday. And who are the notable Warner's there, sir? Well, of course, all of special congressional Washington there and many of the key members of President, George. Herbert walker? Bush's cabinet was there. Mike Pence, the vice president gave a tremendous set of remarks linking not only. George H W Bush to the presidency to congress, which is his son Mike Pence and sun, a marine aviator, George Herbert Walker Bush, a naval aviator, maybe those remarks whereas good as you can get as well as the tributes from the speaker of the house, Paul Ryan majority leader Mitch McConnell, and so many luminaries in the George Walker Bush cabinet there to say. Mattered. He won election, maybe eight loss in ninety two at the time this presidency looked like something approximating a failure in retrospect with the distance and perspective of time. It looks better. It looks a lot better. And that's one thing every president has ever covered. It's always said about the office and the burdens I'm not gonna worry as much as you might think I will worry about today's decision measured by today's standards. I have to think about today's decision measured by the test of time. Wow. And that's that's harder than it. Sounds really hard. Yeah. Politics is instantaneous judgement, so harsh and immediate. And this office requires a kind of patience and the kind of confidence in the longer term evaluation of what you've done that's hard. Doesn't come natural. We'll said major did you have occasion to have a many personal interactions with president George H W Bush. I did not I covered his presidency where I live in Washington literally Joe behind years. No, nothing reporter trying to figure it out. Bathrooms are in Washington. Nineteen ninety ninety two the time of his presidency. I was covering congress a lot what's going on the Bush White House was very energetic. Even though the congress was democratic and hostile. He's got a tremendous amount of work done. Yeah. Campaign was nineteen ninety two. So I saw it H W Bush New Hampshire, so pack you can in there. Let's remember that failed challenge to George Hw. Bush was from that knowledge from the conservative, right, but from the economic nationalist populist, right and the hard line on immigration, right? And what does that sound like now that you plan and was foreshadowing kind of movement that Donald Trump set in motion and bolted himself to the presidency on in two thousand sixteen as interesting that you make that observation major, but see the thing is that people are forgetting major, and then we'll talk about the book, Mr. Trump's wild ride. But I think h w would have won he would have won. If it wasn't for Ross Perot? And I've only heard that mentioned once I mean Ross Perot took nineteen percent of the vote at least two thirds of that would have gone to President Bush, correct? Ross Perot was a significant downdraft in ninety two and it took those Republicans who were upset with George. Herbert walker? Bush over tax increases, you remember, he said, famously lamented review. Tax. Yeah. Any changed and ideological Republicans are no tax Reagan Republicans that was just unforgivable all the other things. She did not withstanding. They just couldn't get over that essentially, was deepening. And there was just a sense that Washington wasn't functioning Ross Perot came in there and said, I can fix it. I covered his campaign for the time. It lasted during that spring. Forget ninety two Ross was leading the polls not just a challenger. He was leading in polls for the presidency and then things better control. But the colo- factor was real. But it spoke to this thing that Pat Buchanan, I touched on and then Ross Perot capitalized Republican dissatisfaction with bipartisan, president cutting deals with Democrats. Interesting thing about this, George H W Bush is really kind of a transitional figure in our political way of thinking about loyalty to party and intense loyalty to your partisan ideology and approach you didn't have that loyalty any pay the price for most politicians haven't made that same mistake or tried to avoid making that mistake since Beijing guy with Piscopo morning, major chief White House correspondent for CBS news has a great new book called Mr. Trump's wild ride, which has just gone rave reviews. Major Garrett what spied you to write this book, sir? So I've been covering the American presidency for better part of twenty years in congress for ten years before that and I come with the Trump campaign. I opened the book killers, you know, by saying, you know, I missed some things I blew it. I loosen things. Here are experiencing supposed to be a nodal not a know it all and I wanted to approach my readers admitting that straight up to say, look any journalist comes at you. After twenty sixteen campaign says I do everything I had it all figured out there. Probably well, there's certainly fooling themselves, and they're trying to fool you. So I wanted to try to take this moment and say, we have all this heavy emotional reaction to President Trump and the sense of I do I love him so much. I can't scandal. Eat them these ruining America. So pronounced there's really nobody in the middle about. Well, what is the Donald Trump presidential experience? Like, and I wanted to be as much as I could journalists who just tells people what's happened. What's likely to last from the Trump presidency? I don't get involved in at all. Because I know you've looked at the book was telling people to like or dislike this credit. I don't mean on that at all. You tell you is what's already happened with her legacy items of this presidency and how they happened at how President Trump made them having journalism. It's what I've done my whole life. And I thought if any topic deserve that kind of treatment, it was this one, you know, a major God bless you for doing that man because it's everybody's so slanted one way or the other. I love the way you approach this. And and you went after this like this. Let me tell you to my goodness major. I could talk to you for an hour. We'll save that for for the dinner at Dino, and Harry when we. But one on one major Garrett, Donald J Trump you must have had little interaction there. Yeah. Gives the inside on that. If you would. Well, key is a formidable and charming person he has to bend. This sense of presence when he walks into any room or walks into any place. He owns it. And he knows it, and that projection of his sense of confidence and strength, and charm is unmistakable every politician at that high level has it, but Donald Trump has it to a different degree. And that's one of the reasons he has this rapturous re re relationship with his Trump supporters. I've been the more than one hundred Trump rallies but twentieth. President and about eighty during the campaign I've seen this process. It's unlike anything I've ever seen in American whilst wire man, people really feeling an emotional and deeply in second intense. He's mine I'm with him. We're together we're together in this thing. And that's why I think sometimes the media doesn't understand that when it is covering this. President those supporters feel kind of left out Joe. Is their voices? Come supporters voices. One through the book. I wanted their voices represented as well. 'cause I met I talked to them. I got to know them, and they're a part of this conversation national and they're in the book as well. And you had an exclusive interview with Jared, Kushner, what did he tell you about the crown prince of Saudi Arabia major? So thank you for noticing. In this context. So during the transition President-elect Trump told Jared, you're in charge of establishing my most important foreign policy relationships, and they're accused segments in the Jared on the record talks about how the relationship with the Saudi kingdom got started. He talked to Mohammed bin era parent, the current crown prince all the time during the transition, and it was Jared Kushner and the crown prince put together that first presidential trip to Saudi Arabia. The first time that's ever happened in American history and lay down a marker in the region that America is gonna be different under Donald Trump in terms of a one Israel Saudi Arabia and the entire complex of issues there. And one of the reasons President Trump has been less willing to maybe some Republicans and lots of Democrats wanted to be criticizing or change in relationship with Saudi Arabia because of Jared Kushner's relationship with the crown prince number one and number two. How this president believes there needs to be a counterweight? In the region to Iran and Saudi Arabia is it and that's more important than almost anything else. And if you wanna learn how that all got started you can hear it from Jared Kushner on the record in my book and Henry Kissinger had some interesting advice for Jared Kushner on the diplomatic front, didn't he? With china. He said look one of the things with Chinese always want to figure out is what's the bottom line? They don't know who your dad is. They don't know what his approach is going to be used that. Unpredictability as a strength keep them off guard. And Joe, you might remember, I certainly a breaking news story freaked out about it at the time during the transition. President-elect Trump takes a call from the Taiwanese president on the foreign policy establishment freaks out Jared Kushner said they were able to use that phone call and the questions about whether President Trump wants inaugurated with Keith the one China policy, keeping it was no issue was always going to keep it. But he takes the call from the Taiwanese to do what do you get the Chinese a bit rattled up the summits that establishes a personal relationship between president Xi and President Trump. That's a microcosm of how this president deals with these big issues again all on the record Jared Kushner in the book imager Garrett chief White House. Correspondent CBS news has a great new book.
