"Unofficially broke up due to myriad reasons but beyond that has it always been given that. There's always gonna be a new record that there's always gonna be another tour. I think so. Like i think that there are. We definitely talked about what is the value of new music versus. Not that we can do this experiment but you know had we stopped playing nineteen ninety nine or ninety eight and then came back now. Would we be millionaires. Would be playing with you. Know with our. Have we done damage to a reputation because you know we went and got old and all those things you know the rolling stones like how interesting are there records after tattoo. You you know. And we're a lot older than they were on tattoo. Although i think that was only that was probably still their twelfth album or something but You know they made so many records so quickly but you know. I often compare us to the rolling stones. Not obviously not for cultural impact. Just as an example of somebody. Who's still trying to do it. If you're the rolling stones you you're talking about the idea of the cursor of having a hit you know they've got. They've got a set list that if they have a new record and they add ten new songs. Like it's just a travesty like you can't how many of those can you take out of the set and i'd like to think that we have some songs that people want to hear. You know. I want that to be true but i also want them to put we when we play now like spent about ten years or so that we don't have opening acts anymore. We display an evening with as it were and we play two sets because you know we all take turns singing so in the course of a night like i'll i'll get five songs or six song so if i play. I probably have four songs. That i probably should play every time but i i like to play at least two of them and then then there are some from the new record and then there are some that you know if some people have seen as we're kind of cult acts like some people have seen as forty fifty times so i like i like to have some that that just like way out of rotation that we can just pull out of a hat so we have to play two sets in order to get all that kind of stuff in and..

"You know those guys like bikes almost fifty match with but but they both have like little babies so they're both kind of in the weeds usual for rock musicians. No and it's in. I had my. My kids are thirteen and ten. I'm fifty two but those guys are you know fifty with like brand new kids at kovin baby but anyway no wait. We had a we had tons was on track to to to do it. I wanted to come out at the end of twenty twenty that was back from the uk kovic slowdown down. It would have come out a little bit earlier the fall of last year but matt's back from the uk. Now dan yes. Oh pandemic sorts. It's hard for us to do anything else. But i'm we think we have some shows we're going to do in december with those guys so that'll be fun. Have you been able to do any songwriting. In the meantime. I've been doing a lot of kind of looking at what i have for songs. My my problem is writing lyrics. Got a whole bunch of kind of finished songs melodies and chords and all that stuff. But it's just. I like my words to be good but i i'd i never liked doing it the it's the most. It's the worst part sitting thinking of a poet like sitting a Writing in a journal like a like a goofball. But the other thing that i'm doing like we have a little sloane. Owns of little boutique. Label kind of in name called murder records. And we've been doing. We'd put out a couple of sony records. We put out a couple of cops when just came out the other day besides volume to besides volume one came at the beginning of this year. We have a couple of things. I think they're going to come on at the end of this year. I put out a record by my friend who died a couple of years ago a recording that that i did with him from nineteen ninety-five gregory mcdonald. Who plays with sloan on keyboard. Teapot at a record is cola wars and we did tons record and a lot of stuff coming out you know small small time stuff that no one's making any much money but it's a it's fun hobby stuff to do. Is it hard to motivate. Is it hard to be productive. When it's not clear when there's gonna be another sloan record or tour. I mean obviously like none of us knew how long this gonna last but it was clear to certain point that that you are going to be out there playing live again next month. Yeah we've done these little decides records. We put the besides records out digitally before in two thousand thirteen or something. But we've just been doing vinyl versions of as a kind of stopgap thing just to have just to show that we're still here and you know selling we make them limited edition. Make twelve hundred. Copies makes us like ten thousand dollars or something but you know it. It just goes on the pilot. I don't pocket that much money. We have to split it all. We started to make a stone teeth sown record last fall before we had to sort of shut it down so i'd like to pick that up again righting emails about people's willingness to get together..

"But yeah we set ourselves up to at. We also have an interesting vantage point. Because we're from canada and being from canada we have enjoyed commercial success that we haven't continued to enjoy in the states. If you know about us in the states. It's because you're on a website or some nerd told you about us. We're not nobody knows who we are. It's just music fans but in canada. We were on tv and radio all through the late nineties all through the nineties and into the two thousand. We were like a mainstream band. I don't mean from a sound point of view. But i mean we benefited from mainstream media. And then we never really didn't in the state so we kind of have to careers one in canada where we play at the belva waterfront festival with a bunch of other big canadian bands. You don't probably even know who they are. And then we go to the states and then we get to hang with red cross and we look like we're credible act you know. Canada has built in triggers. In the same way that you know that you have socialized healthcare. You've also got pieces of the media. Can't con- right yet. Civically designed to lift up canadian acts. Yes and then within canada in quebec the french speaking province. There's there's another incentive there so there are people who are giant stars in quebec that singing french. And i don't know i have no idea who they are. I mean still. Indian comes from that world but But there is. There's a whole industry there. They just they just play in quebec and so some people are rich from doing that. Is it hard is it. Is it arduous. Is it exhausting to go to somewhere like the us and and really have that sort of step down in terms of you know maybe like venue in crowd size. No and it's really not that much different now. I mean we when we play in canada were able to to get more festivals that make money that that that that pay better but if we in toronto we would play a which is where we live we would play two nine hundred thousand people like that would be as big a show as we do now and that's great but if we play in detroit we play to six hundred you know. That's that's getting up there at at the further south you go. I'm buddies with with steven page. Who used to be in the verdict. Ladies in his joke about touring canadian band..

"Yeah this has been the case with sloan because it's it's thirty years this year but it is but i can describe. Our band is just as big a mess like we definitely have been accused of writing compilation style records. That don't hang together and those kinds of things and it never bothered me. I always thought would arise like revolver by the beatles which is just sounds like a cup. A bunch of different bands just never bothered me. The idea of being accused of making accomplish in style record to me just feels like a compliment that they don't know how to give like otherwise. Just uni dimensional. Or i mean. I i mean i know. There's a fine line in words it can use like i. At least eclectic record. I think is uni dimensional which is called packed where andrew didn't write any songs and all of us tried to write songs of a certain type and i thought it was interesting experiment but i just think it's kind of the least sloan. It's the least eclectic in it's It's among the most maligned. Maybe the question is. Is you know. Because i think we're mostly circling around songwriting right. I mean and that's people tend to think of when they think about who is sort of in charge of the vision of a group but is there person who generally rallied the troops and says. Hey it's time to get back in the studio or it's time to tour there is but an an have. He makes the same out of as everybody else to be clear because we're not using the video. That was was chris pointing at myself. Yeah but but i mean up. Songwriting i think that in the same way that i don't believe it when people say certain people can do math in certain people can like i. I just think that everyone can do math. And did you get left behind. Because it's a cumulative thing if you get left behind you feel. You can't do it you just have to know every step in order. I'm not a mathematician. But but i just think that anybody can write songs and in our band we encouraged everybody to do it and i wrote the most at first and by our fifth record we were. We had complete equilibrium. And we help each other. I guess too but we wanted to make it again as a a deliberate democratic exercise to give make it a place for everybody to contribute creatively and a Sorry we were just talking about seven zero They did a similar thing. They all they were three and they all they all wrote. Anyway is an experiment that can go badly. I guess soon and perhaps it goes badly with us at times. But i just think that a whatever. I'm really happy about the fact that we've done it. I think it may have been sorta hard to sort of see what was going on with us at first because it was kinda Disparate but when you look at it from thirty years later like i think that every guy has their own kind of style and i think there's a really cool asymmetrical balance that we have within the band. I'm more of a trump rally. But you know andrew is the most special musician a j is the both finicky and wants to about productions..

"Hermit eric's trip jale the breads the local rabbits hardship posts. These all bands eventually signed to your label. Yeah but but those were our friends and you know they. We were luckier than they were. We had a major label giving us some money and attention but they were just they all had jobs and we're putting out their records and trying to run a utopian business on a sort of bleach model. It's like you know if you do a record with us and then you get a record deal with somebody and then we'll have your. We'll have your ep and we'll make money if you guys make money but we just thought of it as kind of farm team and because we already. We made our money doing something else. We we didn't wanna have contracts. We didn't want to hold anyone back. An all of those harsher post in jail air. Extra all what to sub pop in thrush hermit were on electron states in the enbridge. Were on a label. Short lived atlantic satirical tag. Anyway they all kind of got to taste a little bit fighting. The state's played in in england and stuff but anyway i don't know what what my point is but the i guess i guess we were maybe forward thinking in that. I guess you know pragmatic. I think is probably the proper word you know in. I guess old enough is enough time to understand how this thing tend to go for bands. Yeah the the other thing that we did was we. We decided even though it was kind of my band. I knew all the guys and brought them together and i was writing most of the songs but we also decided from the outset to split everything equally all of the songwriting in an effort to keep everyone interested in the band. Now i had played in a ban where i was young. I was twenty one and they were twenty six and they got a little record deal in canada and they But when that broke up i didn't. I didn't care that much. Because i didn't really i didn't run that band. I just knew the feeling of of i just wanted everyone to be invested so that it would be. I didn't want to change members. And all that kind of stuff like i was bent over backwards to try to to show all four of our faces and to show off that we all right and we all sing and we all share equally in where an exercise in democracy for better for worse preventive versus is a good way putting it. I talked to a lot of bands and not all of them but a majority of them have told me that to some degree. It needs to be a little dictatorial in that. One person really needs to have the clear vision. You know you hear all these stories like there's that when you're talking to that when you're talking about somebody who feels that way. You're talking to the dictator. I mean what are the other guys. Think i joking. But you know. But i will i. I think it should be addicted. To'real to do. You should do it on. Say course but then i lose my band. But that's it exactly at the. They think it should be dictatorial in the sense that they they don't care who's in their band. No it's not. it's not even that at all. i'm talking. I'm talking to people and bands that have been together for for a while. The census that not dictatorial in that. Like somebody you know being a bad boss but in the sense that one person kind of needs to have the clear vision and because the example i think of is remember that credence record where they let everybody write the songs and it just kind of. It was a bit of a mess. I don't know it specifically but we've talked about it in the context of my band behaving the way it does..

Senators Visit Southern Border Amid Increase Of Unaccompanied Minors

"This week. There's a 30% increase in the number of young migrants being held by customs and border protection. Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat of Connecticut, is just back from the border and joins us now, Senator Thanks so much for being with us. Yeah. Thanks for having me you were with the homeland Security secretary yesterday. El Paso on a bipartisan delegation of senators. Uh, no press, no cameras. DHS says that was for privacy. But does this just serve the skepticism that the government has something to hide? I think there's a way for DHS to allow some additional press access into these facilities at the same time. You know, these are kids, you know, six years old 12 years old, who are at the incredibly vulnerable point in their life, And so I certainly understand that there's a reason why you want to be careful about, um, giving press access to them at the same time. We've got to be possible to let reporters just walk around, not take any pictures, right? Yeah, No, I'm Emma's knows something that we should all press the administration to do better on. We want to make sure the president access toe hold pigment castration accountable, but that's the reason I was there to hold them accountable and We've seen a surge that began last year began under the Trump administration, but it's real. It's pressing their resource is and right Now, these kids you're staying too long in detention centers were gonna work. I'm getting them. Additional resource is so that we can process these kids and get them in the J just care rather than the HSE care as quickly as possible. It zah real challenge right now along the border, we got do better. Well, according to NPR reports, hundreds of Children and teens have been held in detention centers for 10 days and longer and of course, by law is supposed to be just 72 hours. You're in charge of the appropriations Committee that over overseas homeland security. Is there any kind of motivation? You could give them if I might put it that way? Well, you know, the rise in Children coming to the border has happened so quickly that it has been difficult. Move them out of these detention facilities in under three days. Right now, as we speak, they're building new capacity to be able to house these Children and filling new slots in the HHS systems. So they are also trying to rebuild. A program of the Trump Administration ended in Central America to allow for kids to apply for asylum there. You know what Donald Trump did was essentially tear down the entire asylum system on so when you had this massive increase in Children coming to the border, first at the end of last year, continuing into the Biden administration It was very difficult for people to move these kids out of attention in that 72 hour period. So the vitamin station's been working very fast to try to rebuild the asylum system. To try to let these kids once again apply to stay in this country if their lives are truly in danger back home and Guatemala or Honduras. But they inherited an absolute mess. A wreck from the Trump administration. They're trying to do better as quickly they can. So they're going to be opening up new facilities for these kids throughout the southwest border in the coming weeks. Hopefully you'll be able to see these times go back down below 72 hours very quickly. They're doing the best. Well and what conditions look like for you in the minute we have left. Well, I mean, this is better than what we saw in 2019. You're not kids in, you know, so called cages. They're not being separated from their family at the border. But these are facilities. You wouldn't want your child in for more than 10 minutes there. Big open rooms. The kids air. You're sleeping on thin mattresses on the floor. There sort of bunched. You know about six inches to a foot from each other. We've got ultimately do better. These air conditions that can just build on the trauma that these kids have already experienced in their home countries and on the long transit to the United States by administration's trying as quickly as they can Process these

Yeah i would have been easier like sell. Yeah so they put it out there that they're going to change the name and then they got trolled by everyone acheiving so much negative press and also just because you know. I think people think college sports and this is why this has been the argument against paying college players for soa college. Sports has his purity. That pro sports doesn't have college. Sports is like an anon- tattooed person. It is clean.

Nothing for the fans were to then you cannot is just. It's a money grab and people don't like that and they think it's a bad look especially when you're seeing coaches salaries just go up and up and up. It looks like it looks very greedy at a time when we don't intuition is going up and up. It's greedy when you don't need to be greedy. Right puts the schools in a bad light right so the public doesn't benefit from this. The the students don't benefit from this. The players who need to benefit don't benefit from this so it just again like you said it it a pit him is is this sort of capitalistic greed. Which i think again makes teams look bad in a team like michigan state in a year when they've looked bad on the court. This was not what they needed. This was not the capper. There's there's a chance they're playing tonight as we record this for all. We know they could beat.

How long's it been since michigan statesman in the tournament. It's been a longtime now run. They and they could go on a long run in the tournament and find they could salvage their year but it's been a rocky year for them and to have this sponsorship thing come up it once again and i'm happy that the world of public opinion kind of self corrected this situation. They came out and said they're not changing their name. But they but i'm asking you is this. Was that just a test balloon to go up are we can see a different way like a gentler.

Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?

Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?

"The. Us treasury department sanctioning russian officials in response to the poisoning the attempted assassination of a russian political leader and dissident alexi navalny ni With novacek. Do you think this is a good idea. I do i do i. It was just unacceptable for the united states to be silent in the wake of russia's most important opposition leader being intentionally poisoned now in prison by putin's government. I mean if we don't lead the global fight to protect democracy and stand up for pro democratic movements in places like russia no one will and what we see is that the forces of despotism are on the march democrat democracies that we took for granted just ten years ago are now slowly sliding away from self determination even in and on the edges of europe and so by standing up to one of the world's most brutal bullies vladimir putin We are also. I think sending a signal to nascent democracy movements and fragile democracies that america is back on the democracy promotion stage so speaking of that. There's a there. Of course. Also the release of the previously classified report about the intelligence communities findings about bin hamad bin salman that he had greenlighted at the very least the operation to capture or kill but those are the words. They're a jamal khashoggi. Newspaper columnist the washington post. The biden administration not doing anything personally. Mohammed bin salman not revoking visa. Travel rights were personal sanctions. Saying the emas recalibration not a rupture. We've been very clear with a saudi. This is an historic partnership. It's lasted for seventy five years. What do you think of that. I mean i think you can sort of connect these two conversations. There's no question that vladimir putin ordered the poisoning of alexei navalny but we didn't announce sanctions on putin today largely because We tend to not levy sanctions on the leaders of countries And i think that is probably part of the rationale for why m b. s. was spared sanctions but i would make this argument on saudi arabia. I frankly think that Nbs weapons matter much more to him than his visa. And so what i would argue is that we should recalibrate. Our security partnership with the saudis. I if they're going to be in the business of chopping up dissidents or targeting them all around the world and we shouldn't be selling them weapons and so. I think the administration is right now. Having debate about what our security partnership looks like and if we make changes to that well. It looked like a personal sanction on. Mvs you'll have a big impact on him and his priorities. Senator chris murphy. Thanks for making time tonight.

Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine

"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

"Being boiled to death slowly so we can't tell senator Chris Murphy joins me next on president trump's intelligence community crackdown a new claim about Russian interference in the twenty twenty lessons they with us on C. span radio CNN's that state of the union it continues welcome back to the state of the union and Jake tapper we learned this week that the U. S. intelligence community has warned lawmakers that Russia is already trying to interfere in the twenty twenty presidential race senator Bernie Sanders confirmed a Washington post report that he was briefed by officials that Russia is trying to aid his campaign in the primaries as part of Russia's overall disruption campaign for president trump and a top aide are now denying what it intends intelligence official told lawmakers in a briefing that the Russians have a preference for president trump national security official tells me that the briefer may have overstated in the can't miss characterize intelligence regarding from which as of now does not suggest the Russians have a preference though they do believe they can work with president trump joining me now democratic senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut is a member of the Senate foreign relations committee as senator thanks so much for being here I want to ask about something that national security adviser Robert o'brien was asked in a different show about Russia interfering the twenty twenty election specifically the Bernie Sanders element of it he said quote there are these reports that they want Bernie Sanders to get elected president that's no surprise he honeymooned in Moscow on quote what's your response to that well our national security adviser should stay out of politics and that is a political statement what we know is that the Russians never stopped interfering in American politics if they don't just get involved in elections they are involved every single day and analysis of what they've been doing on Twitter since twenty sixteen has been pretty clear they're weighing in over and over again in support of right wing causes in support of Donald trump's political agenda and of course it stands to reason that they want Donald Trump reelected because he has been a gifted to Russia he is essentially ceded the Middle East Russian interests he has accomplished more in the undermining of NATO than Russia has in the last twenty years and he continues to effectively deny that they have an ongoing political operation here in the United States that by and large is intended to support Donald Trump and his allies so the truck people would push back they would say that he has actually gotten NATO members to spend more on defense than previous presidents have been able to do which is factually correct that he is spending more on the U. S. military than previous presidents which which is also a correct and in fact that you know all of this is hostile to what Russia would want so what we know is that NATO is weaker today than ever before the fact Donald Trump has question whether or not the United States would even come to the defense of our NATO ally in the future is an invitation to Russian continue to probe at our borders and of course the entire impeachment scandal was over the trump administration's weakening of Ukraine taking that country and turning it into just another political actor in the United States which is going to once again sent a message to Russia that vague can I try to move on countries on their periphery without any real consequence from the United States which they have not done we should we should note I wanna ask you Sanders campaign manager cited this quote from a Brian that I read to you in a tweet any suggestion his tweet because Sanders campaign manager that the trump administration leaked classified intelligence without context to weaponize against burning that's a very strong charts you agree well I don't know how that information ultimately came out what I am worried about is the politicization of intelligence by this administration the new acting head of intelligence has no background in Intel he is a trump loyalist and I think we all worry about this administration controlling massive amounts of intelligence massive amounts of classified information and leaking it out to the press one advantages that I have been very worried about the kind of information the trump administration keeps classified there have been multiple instances of the trump administration keeping classified information that might be politically embarrassing to the president but actually doesn't hold any true national security classified information so the weaponization of classified information I think it's something that we are more worried about especially with this new acting director of intelligence are you talking about when they say they're keeping information secret because it might damage anything with the John Bolton book what do you what do you mean the John Bolton book certainly is an example of information that may not actually need to be classified but it's simply embarrassing to the president the information regarding Mike pence's meeting in a regarding Ukraine that was kept classified during the impeachment proceedings involved no classified information the only reason that that was classified was because it would hurt the president's case during the impeachment trial I want to ask about your recent meeting last week and I guess with Iranian foreign minister is a reef in Munich president trump said this week that he thought your meeting was illegal take a listen senator Murphy with the Iranians is that a fact I just saw that on the way over is there anything that I should know because that sounds like to me a violation of the Logan act.

"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G.

No sign of end to standoff over Trump impeachment trial

"And now to the impeachment debate here in Washington the Senate Republican leader is accusing house speaker Nancy Pelosi and what he is calling shamelessly game playing those comments from senator McConnell came after the speaker again stated she does not plan to send articles of impeachment of the Senate until seeing proposed rules for trial a president trump the continuing standoff between the speaker and the Senate Republican leader focusing on the president's conduct toward Ukraine comes as the president addressed the nation on the hostilities with Iran a crisis that is now over shadowing the impeachment drama from the Senate floor Republican John Thune of South Dakota but as a very straightforward process one as I said that met with the approval of all one hundred senators both Democrats and Republicans back in nineteen ninety nine the Clinton president is seems to me at least to be a fair way in which to proceed and and won that Senate Republicans have agreed to move forward with soul if and when the house Democrats under speaker Pelosi determine that they are ready to send those articles over here seems like maybe they're waiting for something to rescue what I think is an otherwise fairly weak argument that they have to make but when those articles arrive here we will have a process in place in which to move forward and and and get this trial under way in the Senate and hopefully hear the arguments and at some point in I hope in the not too distant future I conclude this and get it behind us in on to the work that the American people I think sent his here to do obviously there is an election coming up in November the first of all we'll start being cast just a few weeks from now in the state of Iowa and New Hampshire and other states followed very closely on by super Tuesday so the election process is already under way and I think that is the means by which most Americans believe we ought to deal with our leadership and in a democratic system of government we have the opportunities people to express our opinions and the voice argues in that manner and I would hope that that is where we can settle these political differences industries that we have that from Republican John Thune of South Dakota on the Senate floor the hill newspaper reporting a democratic senators are quote growing impatient over the delayed start of the impeachment trial some saying it's time for speaker Pelosi to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate in fact this from democratic senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut telling The Washington Post yesterday quote I think the time is past we should send the articles over reacting to all of that the house democratic caucus chair Hakeem Jeffries of New York sorry say has no the resolution going to like what do you gain by waiting for one of our as speaker has consistently indicated it's very difficult for her to determine who would be appropriate impeachment managers to present the house's case in the absence of understanding the rules of engagement and what the contours of a trial would look like beyond of course chairmanship and chairman Nadler who one would think we're going to be logical choices and participants to lead the effort but what we have seen over the last several weeks all the additional disclosure of documents that continue to highlight that the president did abuse his power by targeting an American citizen for political gain while withholding intentionally three hundred and ninety one million dollars in military aid from a vulnerable Ukraine additional documents subsequent to the speaker's decision to hold the articles have come out that's a gain in terms of information to the American people and we've also seen during this period of time that a critically important potential witness John Bolton has said he will testify if subpoenaed John Bolton had direct communication with the president about this sordid matter and abuse of power and we know from testimony from doctor Fiona hill characterize this whole scheme as a drug deal and the president's main operative Rudolph Giuliani as a hand grenade that from democratic congressman who keen Jeffries part of the house democratic leadership in this note regarding the house California governor Gavin Newsom today saying that he will not call for a special election in the district held by resigning Republican congressman Duncan hunter saying that we received his letter of resignation based on the timing a special election will not be called Duncan hunter officially steps down next Monday after pleading guilty to charges of campaign finance

Missouri was a place to get a. across the board. you look at all of the state's experiences you don't get everywhere forty percent and twenty three percent but on average space that background checks of fifteen percent. lower homicide rates in states that have a. and if we did this on a national basis even states that have universal background checks would benefit why because the crime guns are being used in Connecticut are coming from Connecticut they're coming from states with you guessed it. no universal background checks. it was being used in Chicago to come from Chicago. the guns being used for crimes in New York City don't come from New York City. one percent of guns used in crimes in your city come from New Jersey you know why New Jersey has universal background checks so those guns are coming up from South Carolina and Georgia and please read and go to a gun show. and get a whole truckload guns without having to ever go through a background check. background checks work. they are the most impactful. public policy measure. since the background check law was passed in the mid nineties over three point five million sales have been blocked. the violent criminals and other prohibited individuals and that. it is just the tip of the iceberg because most of the people that actually had the gall to set foot in the gun store. knowing that they had. eight a fence in their history that would prohibit them from buying a gun maybe not knowing that that is the people that went into the gun store and try to buy a gun. and got the night. there are. millions and millions of more people who wanted guns but couldn't get on. and didn't go into a gun store in the first place. the problem is today. getting that. denial from the gun store. is not really a barrier to buying a gun. because twenty thirty percent of gun sales now happen without a background check they happen in a private sale between one person and another they happen at a gun show. which is. which art forms that don't require under federal law background checks. a man in Odessa Texas failed a background check because he had been. diagnosed by a clinician as seriously mentally ill. I didn't stop him from getting a gun. he just. found a private seller. thirty. found another way. private seller game a gun and didn't require me go through a background check. he took that gun. and used it to kill seven people and injured twenty more. I don't think that you have to. pass a law to fit the last mass shooting I think that's a ridiculous trap that people try to put us in. this isn't the only mass shooting in which universal background checks could have changed. the outcome one of the first match using it sits in my consciousness that in Columbine is another example of a. shooter got a gun outside the background check system who couldn't have gotten one. through it. so what do you want anecdotal evidence or statistical data I've got it all background checks work. well here's. what's so mad. people love background checks. apple pie and baseball. grandma. no number is popular is background checks are. ninety percent of Americans like background check show me any other public policy today the United American gets ninety percent support in this country eighty percent of gun owners seventy percent of NRA members everybody wants background checks universal background checks they don't want mention to me which just expand background checks to commercial sales they want H. R. eight. they want H. R. eight. which is passed the house of representatives has been sitting on the floor of the United States Senate for two hundred and two days that's what. Americans want ninety percent of Americans support H. R. eight. don't tell me that this issue is controversial it's just controversial in this bubble. it's not controversial out in the American public and is not a blue state a red state issue background checks are just as popular in Georgia as they are in Connecticut. we don't have to wait for the president to tell us what to do. senator McConnell has a different copy of the constitution that I have. my copy of the constitution says that none of us. are required to get permission slips from the president before we act before we do something that we think is good for the country that's why to me how the Republican leadership is so eager to advertise that the Senate will do nothing unless president trump gives it permission. he's not the most popular guy. I don't know why my friends the Republican side would just openly admit they don't act unless the president thousand it's okay that's not how it has to be. we can make a decision ourselves. on this one. every single person here should do because it's the right thing but. it's also going to win yeah a lot of support back home.
