House panel weighs resolution to remove Greene from committees

"Snapshot of the divided Republican Party. Just look at what's happening today In the House of Representatives, GOP leaders are weighing fates of two very different members of the party. One is Liz Cheney, the number three Republican in the House who voted last month to impeach then President Donald Trump. The other is freshman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Trump loyalist known for spouting conspiracy theories and bigoted comments. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez and Claudia House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has supported Chani. But he's also said he has concerns about her impeachment vote. Trump allies like Florida Congressman Matt Gates even went to Wyoming to urge her constituents to vote her out of office. And here's another critic, Ohio representative Jim Jordan. When you're the conference chair, and you're the person who speaks for the conference, and you take a position that 96 to the conference, disagreed with and you do that ahead of time. She didn't She didn't just go voter conscious. On the day of the vote. She spoke ahead of time. 36 hours put out a statement in the sharpest possible terms. That's a concern. So Claudia is Liz Cheney in real danger here that remains to be seen. Today's GOP conference meeting later today on Capitol Hill will be a real signal there on where the party and Cheney go from here. This is all emblematic of this. These widening divisions were seeing in the party right now former President Trump left a vacuum of power as well as a dye identity crisis. For the GOP, a Republican strategist mention to me that with Trump, the populist wing of the party is swallowed up the establishment wing of the party time and time again, and we're seeing that play out in real time right now. This is the Republicans lost the house, the Senate, the White House under his man and under his administration, So the party is in the midst of this civil war If you will, and these members who remain fierce Trump loyalists are targeting Cheney. At one end well establishment Republicans are supporting Cheney at the other. Sure and change. The daughter of a former vice president represents the establishment in many of the populist side would probably mean embodied by Marjorie Taylor, Greene and House Democrats. Claudia want to strip her of her committee assignments, which would be a pretty severe rebuke and reminds me that House Republicans did agree a couple years ago to strip Steve Steve King of his committee assignments after he had publicly questioned why white supremacy is offensive. And then he lost his next primary, and that is out of office now. So is there a parallel here? Yes, In some ways there are a Democratic leadership aide told me this morning that House Majority leader Steny Hoyer told his caucus. That McCarthy needs to repeat the same action he took with King, which is move green off all of her committees, and Hoyer spoke to McCarthy this morning after that phone call with his caucus. Signaling the potential for a deal here between both sides before your said Democrats are moving forward with the resolution to remove green from her committee's This is really rare and even higher, has said this could backfire where the GOP could force their members off panels in the future. That said Democrats are determined where said that he spoke to McCarthy. And there's clear clearly no alternative to holding Ah, floor vote on this resolution to remove grain from her committee assignments. The Rules Committee will meet this afternoon to sort out how that debate will play out and it looks like the House will vote on this resolution tomorrow. Okay, so that's what's going on in the House Real quick Cloudy in the Senate. The impeachment trial starts next week, and Republicans are also gonna have to decide how loyal they're going to be to the former president. So in the moments we have left how many Republicans seem willing to convict at this point We saw five GOP senators break with her colleagues in a vote to say the trial is constitutional. That's a clue to what we could see in terms of the votes to convict Trump. There are some who left the door open that could join that group, but it looks like it will be a minority of Senate GOP members. I see many focusing on the process lend less So the substance that's NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez. Thank you. You're

"But people are still trying to push their way into the Senate side of the Capitol. Tom People are clearly unsettled by what we're seeing and what we're hearing. What do we know about what's plan to secure the situation now is the night comes and really this political process. I'm sorry. What could you repeat that? Yes. What do we know what his plan to secure the situation now is nightfall comes we've been talking. Yeah, that we've seen very few police with a line. Would say it does under so it D C police that came on the grounds of the capital on the West side. Walking through the crowd cried. Some of them were jeering at the police saying You're supposed to work for us. Of swearing at them, and then the police almost instantaneously moved around. To the other side of the Capitol. So those are the only police we've seen so far. A couple of please here toward the, uh, East front of the Capitol. But so far those were the only police I've seen up here. Um They're pushing their open the doors again, and they're pushing in the suburbs of the flag of credit. Be trying to get in. People again are pushing in. It looks like they're being again pushed out by police were trying to close the doors once more, Tom, I'm not sure if it's still there. But at one point today, I saw an image of a very large trump banner hanging from the front of the Capitol building a zoo. You know conservatives, Republicans take pride and calling themselves the party of Law and order. That's clearly not what's happening right now. I wonder if you've spoken with people Do you get the sense that they're purely members from these far right political groups like proud boys or something like that, or these everyday people? No. I got the sensor everyday people number of evangelical Christians here family members. We talked to her family from Missouri, and they're convinced that the election was stolen. It's a fraud that they wouldn't look. Hopes up fraud. The court did not look at that evidence. And they said We're here basically to support our president. They're convinced this election was stolen. Um, um, Let's bring back in Douglas Brinkley. Is Douglas still here with Rice University? Um, if you're still here, he we don't have him. You know, is Claudia Gonzalez. Well, if he's called, Yes, Claudia, um You know, we've had this discussion time and time again over the last year because we've had so many protests that have happened, Um and right now. We are looking for terms to best describe what we're saying. Are these domestic terrorists? Mobs, protesters? What's the difference? And why do we call them? Why? What we call them matter? At this point, I think that'll that dictates what kind of action what kind of threats they bring upon the capital. You could probably use all three of those terms to refer to these groups they are terrorizing. The folks on the Capitol complex today. Unfortunately, there are mobs. They're angry mobs and there they are threatening violence and that we just don't know the extent of what that violence. Could look like this point. Right now. Our understanding is everyone is is safe has been moved to a secure location in terms of members, staffers and other workers. But we still were still at the beginnings of this, and it's going to take some time to get a sense of Of what these groups are capable of. What kind of concerns that new concerns they're going to create today? I believe we have Ah, Congressman on the line. Peter Walsh, Democrat of Vermont. Congressman, Are you there with us? Well, she I'm sorry. Yeah, Tell me. What do you What are you seeing? And how are you feeling right now? Well, I'm now with those of us who were in the capital when it was breached by the by the protesters using a nice name for them, and we've been evacuated to a bomb shelter in another congressional building.

"Okay, Well, Claudia, I mean, it sounds like lawmakers had a plan for that defense bill. They did not have a plan for this change the president jumping in and throwing a wrench in the covert relief. Negotiations. I mean, it's not like that came out of nowhere exactly as we heard from Reed at the top, and there's little appetite to address these demands. Republicans instead said they want to have the House floor Green light a plan to revisit the foreign aid section of the spending package. This was one of Trump's major targets this week in his video statement, But this is a no go for Democrats. One House Republican. Nebraska's Don Bacon told his colleagues on a call yesterday that Trump basically threw them under the bus. And he noted in a statement afterwards, confirming this That his party was told by the White House to support this bill on Monday, the same day of the vote, so the frustration with Trump is palpable. And then you have this weird situation with Democrats sort of cheering on Trump calling for larger direct payments to Americans basically saying, I'm so happy you came around our idea. Exactly. They held a pro form a session on the house for these air. Quick check ins on the floor. And they were trying to get quick approval for this plan, but they were blocked by Republicans. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement afterwards that the GOP quote cruelly blocked these payments, and Trump should call on them to stop their obstruction. Now, she says she's going to try again on Monday to call for roll call, though this is to make certain that every lawmaker And their vote is recorded on this, and she hopes by Monday the president will sign the spending package because if not, Congress will need to pass a new government funding measure to avoid a government shutdown by Monday night. Well, we could be back there. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez. Thank you so much. Claudia. Thanks for having me. Doctors and nurses. It's some of the top hospitals in the country say that people with the most exposure to covert patients are not always the people getting the vaccine first as Gabrielle Emanuel of member station GBH in Boston reports, some people are saying the distribution has been like a free for all. For 16 years, Jennifer did. Vincent has been a nurse in the mass General Brigham Hospital system. It's been stressful this year in her neonatal intensive care unit because some mothers have tested positive for Cove. It So she was thrilled about the vaccine coming. But last week, the scheduling system crashed too many users when it was up again did Vincent was busy with a patient. I remember I was I was sitting there in the rocker feeding the baby as I was hearing. Nurses talk from outside the room and in the hallway. There was a commotion as they realized that within minutes, all the appointments were gone many night shift workers woke up to learn they'd slept through the announcement of the new system and the sign up windows. It turned into somewhat of a free for all and You know those that work the most have had the hardest time getting an appointment because you can always log on at that exact moment to Vincent, who is still unvaccinated says her frustration turned to anger when she realized exactly who would be getting the shots. Some were managers coordinators, people who didn't do hands on patient care. Mass. General Brigham is using an honor code system employees are supposed to self police and not skip ahead. It definitely feels a little bit like a slap in the face. It absolutely did create a frenzy, which is the opposite of what we wanted to do with this system, and it's something that we're working very hard on addressing right now. Paul Bidding GIR is overseeing the vaccine rollout at Mass. General Brigham He says they didn't manage expectations well, given the limited number of vaccines, But he says using the honor code is necessary with a staff of more than 80,000. It's actually relatively complex to figure out who is working where we have staff who move among our hospitals and work in different roles in different hospitals. He's been going through the data and says it was relatively rare for people to jump the line and usually a misunderstanding. He says they're working on making the guidelines a lot clearer and fixing issues in the APP. While that scene rollout has gone smoothly at many hospitals, the issues at Mass General Brigham are not unique. Similar challenges have arisen at places like New York Presbyterian and Stanford Medicine. I do think that these are initial stumbles. Julie Swan is an expert in supply chains who advised the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on distributing the H one N one vaccine. She's betting things will get a lot smoother quickly since supply is increasing. But she says there are techniques to make sure the right people get vaccinated. One way is to send information out first, just to the smallest group that is eligible for the vaccine and get them registered First.

"Bush did in his first term or president Obama did in his first term. But at the same time Trump has what's different about Trump is that he is pardoning very high profile people that are close to him, his friends and his associates. And that's very different. NPR White House reporter I used to Roscoe. Thanks, Asia. Thank you. Okay, so Congress thought it had tied up most of its work before leaving for the holidays. But President Trump apparently had different ideas. Yesterday, he vetoed the annual defense bill, and the day before that, he harshly criticized the massive covert relief bill that was passed after a lot of work. That caught many off guard, including Republican congressman Tom Reed, who spoke to NPR yesterday. Obviously, it got all of us by surprise of many of us were blindsided by this section by the president. And now each party seems to have a different plan to respond. And let's bring in NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis I Claudia. Good Morning, David. Let's start with a bill that was Vito, the Defense Authorization Act. It's knows the nd a remind us what was in there and why the president vetoed it. Yes, This is the policy bill for the Pentagon. So it includes pay raises boost in troop levels and equipment, and the veto isn't a surprise. Trump threatened to veto this bill several times in the last several months. He first took issue with the Bills plans to rename military bases. That on our figures from the Confederacy, and then he wanted a last minute provisioned repealing a liability shield for social media companies. And then finally, he said, that it didn't sufficiently address China. So what happens now? So because this wasn't a surprise, Congress already made plans to meet to override this veto next week, and it appears that they have the majority's needed to do so. And that's because when they passed the final version of this legislation earlier this month, they drew these kind of overwhelming votes already. So the house is expected to meet first meet to override this veto. They'll need two thirds of their members to agree, and if that clears the lower chamber, it will move to the Senate for similar approval by Tuesday. Okay, well, Claudia, I mean, it sounds like lawmakers had a plan for that defense bill. They did not have a plan for this change the president jumping in and throwing a wrench in the covert relief negotiations. I mean, it's not like that came out of nowhere exactly as we heard from Reed at the top, and there's little appetite to address who these demands. Republicans instead said they want to have the House floor Green light a plan to revisit the foreign aid section of the spending package. This was one of Trump's major targets this week in his video statement, But this is a no go for Democrats. One House Republican. Nebraska's Don Bacon told his colleagues on a call yesterday that Trump basically threw them under the bus. And he noted in a statement afterwards, confirming this That his party was told by the White House to support this bill on Monday, the same day of the vote, so the frustration with Trump is palpable. And then you have this weird situation with Democrats sort of cheering on Trump calling for larger direct payments to Americans basically saying, I'm so happy you came around our idea. Exactly. They held a pro form a session on the house for these air quick check ins on the floor and they were trying to get quick approval for this plan, but they were blocked by Republicans. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement afterwards that the GOP quote cruelly blocked these payments, and Trump should call on them to stop their obstruction. Now, she says she's going to try again on Monday to call for roll call, though this is to make certain that every lawmaker And their vote is recorded on this, and she hopes by Monday the president will sign the spending package because if not, Congress will need to pass a new government funding measure to avoid a government shutdown by Monday night. Well, we could be back there. Um, NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez. Thank you so much. Claudia. Thanks for having me. Doctors and nurses. It's some of the top hospitals in the country say that people with the most exposure to covert patients are not always the people getting the vaccine first as Gabrielle Emanuel of member Station GBH in Boston reports. Some people are saying the distribution has been like a free for all. For 16 years, Jennifer did. Vincent has been a nurse in the mass General Brigham Hospital system. It's been stressful this year in her neonatal intensive care unit because some mothers have tested positive for co vid. So she was thrilled about the vaccine coming. But last week, the scheduling system crashed too many users when it was up again did Vincent was busy with a patient. I remember I was I was sitting there in the rocker feeding the baby as I was hearing. Nurses talk from outside the room and in the hallway. There was a commotion as they realized that within minutes, all the appointments were gone many night shift workers woke up to learn they'd slept through the announcement of the new system and the sign up windows. It turned into somewhat of a free for all and You know those that work the most have had the hardest time getting an appointment because you can't always log on at that exact moment to Vincent, who is still unvaccinated says her frustration turned to anger when she realized exactly who would be getting the shots. Some were managers coordinators, people who didn't do hands on patient care. Mass. General Brigham is using an honor code system employees are supposed to self police and not skip ahead. It definitely feels a little bit like a slap in the face. It absolutely did create a frenzy, which is the opposite of what we wanted to do with this system, and it's something that we're working very hard on addressing right now. Paul Bidding GIR is overseeing the vaccine rollout at Mass. General Brigham He says they didn't manage expectations well, given the limited number of vaccines, But he says using the honor code is necessary with a staff of more than 80,000. It's actually relatively complex to figure out who is working where we have staff who moved among our hospitals and work in different roles in different hospitals. He's been going through the data and says it was relatively rare for people to jump the line and usually a misunderstanding. He says they're working on making the guidelines a lot clearer and fixing issues in the APP. While vaccine rollout has gone smoothly at many hospitals, the issues at Mass General Brigham are not unique. Similar challenges have arisen at places like New York Presbyterian and Stanford Medicine. I do think that these are initial stumbles.

Trump vetoes colossal $740 billion defense bill, breaking with Republican-led Senate

"President Trump has veto the annual defense bill. That is a move that the House and senator now going to try to override. The president also called the Cove it relief bill that lawmakers worked on for seven months to pass. Disgrace. Even Republicans were surprised by that. Here's Republican congressman Tom Reed of New York on NPR yesterday. Obviously, it got all of us by surprise. So many of us were blindsided by this section by the president. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez has been following this story, Claudia. Good morning. No. Well, why did the President veto the Defense Authorization Act? Yes, This is the policy bill for the Pentagon to it includes pay raises. Boosting troop levels and equipment, and the veto isn't a surprise. Trump threatened to veto this bill several times in the last several months. He took issue with the Bills plans to rename military bases that honor figures. From the Confederacy.

The House is expected to meet first to move to override this veto. They'll need two thirds of their members to agree. And if that clears the lower chamber, it will move to the Senate for similar approval by Tuesday, Okay, so could get done the covert relief packages now. Also, in the upside down, we heard the surprise from Tom Reed. How are other Republicans reacting So there's little appetite to address his demands. And, frankly, there's little time This Congress ends on January. 3rd and remember took months of bitter partisan fighting just to reach this, 0.1 House Republican Nebraska's Don Bacon told his colleagues on a call yesterday. That Trump basically threw them under the bus. And he noted in a statement afterwards, confirming he said this that his party was told by the White House to support this bill on Monday, the same day of the vote. So the frustration is palpable. Meanwhile, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy said last night and a letter to his colleagues that they'll offer a unanimous consent request. This is a Knopper to nitty to try and get quick approval to revisit foreign aid, one of Trump's major criticisms when he focused on how much foreign aid was included in this overall package. But we're expecting that to get shot down that Democrats, meanwhile, heard President Trump's call to send regular people $2000 per person, instead of the 600 that Congress agreed upon, and Democrats were like, sure, Let's do that. That's what we wanted from the day Yes, And so now. Today, they'll open up the House floor session and asked to get this unanimous consent this quick approval on the plan. And so they're trying to capitalize on the moment, but it's also expected to get blocked by House Republicans. Meanwhile, the have a lot to consider over the holiday break because if the president does indeed torpedo this massive package in the coming days will need to pass a new government funding measure by Monday.

"Morning. Millions of Americans struggling during this pandemic will soon get $600 checks and some other additional help from the federal government. After many months of delay, Congress has reached a deal on a new round of coronavirus relief aid sent Majority leader Mitch McConnell and top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer announced the agreement last night. It's our citizens continue battling this coronavirus this holiday season. They will not be fighting alone. Make no mistake about it. This agreement is far from perfect. But it will deliver emergency relief. To a nation in the throes of a genuine emergency. Among other provisions. That's roughly $900 billion measure will include more small business Same or unemployment assistance. Also, money for vaccine distribution. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez is here. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning, David. So give us the latest here. How did this all come together? Yes, Leaders are finally on the same page when it comes to these key efforts of this steel, But lawmakers still note there's some last minute details to sort through and finalize such a sharing actual text of the legislation. Having members review that text. We should also know why they were celebrating this breakthrough last night. They were also blaming each other for the delays and reaching this point that said, If all goes as expected, we should see Congress vote on this final massive package today. It also includes of must pass annual government funding bill. Lawmakers didn't reach a deal on that in time for the start of the new fiscal year that so there's been a serious of short term stopgap measures to get us here. Last night, lawmakers passed another one to get us to unexpected finish line today. So assuming that this all gets written up into a bill, and it does get past me what talk more about what's in it. What should Americans expect? Well, we mentioned the direct checks of up to $600 for Americans, and we'll also see $300 extra and weekly unemployment benefits about 300 billion for small business loans to the Paycheck protection program. Money for hospitals and food security programs and rental assistance as well as help for schools. All told, this $900 billion plan could arrive as a number of provisions were set to expire at the end of this month. I do a package passed earlier this year. I mean, so many people have been waiting for this and frankly wondering why it was taking lawmakers so long to come to an agreement. It sounds like the logjam here was broken late on Saturday. What? What did you come down to it? What was the compromise that they had to reach here? Yes, This was about a very specific provisions by Republican Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania. He wanted to limit lending programs for the Federal Reserve. This was triggered by an earlier stimulus bill, known as the Cares Act that was passed in March. Democrats said his language was overly broad and they wanted to make sure President elect Joe Biden could launch similar lending programs with the Fed, so they were able to reach an agreement to narrow the impact. And both sides were pleased with the outcome. Democrats say doesn't hurt a future ability to restart lending facilities while to me, told reporters on a call Sunday that his initial language was too broad. So the president's presumably is to sign this, of course, before I could actually go into effect. Where is President Trump on these talks in this bill? He's been quite absent. His Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, has been involved in the initial talks with this is really from congressional leaders. Trump had called for bigger relief checks on Twitter, echoing progressives and conservatives and calling on Congress to get it done. Now we're told he will sign this plan for his part President elect bite and has also called on Congress to pass a relief bill swiftly, but he's also made sure to call it a down payment on additional aid when he takes office. All right. It's been a long road. And as you say, a few more details to be worked out. Yeah, dotted, I's and crossing tease, but it sounds like we're getting pretty close to having this happen. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis Thanks so much. Thanks for having me Corona virus has, of course, pushed people outdoors.

Judiciary Committee sets date for vote on Barrett confirmation

"This morning, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee tried and failed to slow down the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney Barrett, who appears to be on track for the high court before the November 3rd election. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez joins us with the latest and Claudia Today is Day four of Cockney barrettes confirmation How far apart of Republicans and Democrats on this committee over the sheer pace of this confirmation hearing? It's really going pretty fast. They're moving as quickly as they can. Republicans. Are they? Both sides remain very far apart. Just this morning is you had mentioned Democrats were able to delay today's proceedings. They did that by about two hours. And they're hearing now from a series of experts and Barrett is not appearing s. Oh, it's just a reminder of how these two sides are so opposed right now. Democrats don't want to see this nomination move forward, but they also have very limited tools and their disposal to stop this process. Republicans have been steadfast in their mission to approve Barrett to the court before Election Day, and even this much of the country is already in the midst of early voting. So this is moving on schedule for Republicans, even with the Democrats attempts to stall with a vote set for next Thursday to move her nomination from the committee to the full Senate floor. What's been some of the analysis of how Cockney Barrett has has come across this week, while surprisingly, even with this bitter partisanship on display right now, this hasn't been this combative and contentious as we saw during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings from 2018. Democratic senators told reporters last night that Barrett isn't his combative as Kavanaugh. So that's taken Ah lot of the heat out of this wave of hearings this time that say they've complained repeatedly that Barrett has been evasive. She's declined to talk about how she might rule in the future on certain cases. And she's also dodged questions on climate change and other matters that air of importance right now, But in light of that, Republicans say Barrett and her background is still resonating with the American public. She did have some things to say, though, about the case coming before the high court this week after the election, challenging the affordable care act, what stood out there? So she hasn't said she'll recuse herself. From that case, she was grilled extensively on this. Democrats say Trump is putting her on the court to overturn it. And Democrats say Barrett auditioned for the court threw a Siri's of critical pieces against the we should note. Again that this case will be before the court just a week after the election, and she hasn't said this week, however, that she's on a mission to destroy it, but still, it remains unclear how she could rule here. And says she hasn't looked at the issues yet and doesn't know how she will either. There was also this moment yesterday in an exchange with Senator and Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, who pressed Cockney Barrett on her beliefs about whether Koven 19 was infectious. Whether smoking causes cancer. And whether climate change is real. I will not expressive you on a matter of public policy, especially when that is politically controversial because that's inconsistent with the judicial role as I have, explained Barrett and you've made your point clear that you believe that's a debatable plan. And in Harris was responding there on noting that Cockney Barrett is saying climate change is a debatable point. What are other Democrats saying about moments like this? And what are Republicans, also saying in response, Democrats are using this as ammunition that Baird has been evasive and using. This is an example of claims that the American public still doesn't know. Bear it well enough to know she's a right fit for the Supreme Court in this ties into another concern, just raised by Democrats in today's hearing. Claiming Barrett has yet to submit comprehensive information of the committee about her background because again, this is such a rushed process on. Even Democrats have conceded they haven't had enough time to dig in to bat. Barrett's background to bring some And even more comprehensive look at this nominee and how she could shift the court. So in terms of her asking thes questions that Paris and others if they feel like they're haven't been enough answers, But Republicans say that she's presented a complete picture enough to be approved to the to the highest court. Okay, So what's the timeline for the committee to vote on her nomination and then the full Senate? So we know to Republican Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. R potential. No votes, but But even still, is this a done deal? This appears to be a done deal from here. Of course, a week is eons away these days, so we can't say for sure what's going to happen. However, the committee has set that vote for next week to vote her nomination out to the full Senate floor so the full Senate could take this up sometime in the remaining days of the month. And in terms of who might vote against that, Yes, those two Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are two potential no votes. Democrats are still hoping that they'll have more Republicans flip and vote against this and perhaps derail the effort. But right now it looks like this could be a done deal.
