"We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle is say, Claudia. Hey, Alpha. All right. So tell us more about what happened here. Pelosi deciding to block Two members from the select Committee. What happened? Yes, she rejected these two GOP picks. That's representative Jim Banks of Indiana is the panel's top Republican, and Jim Jordan of Ohio as a member because of their past statements and actions. We should note. Both voted against the certification of President Biden's election on January six, and Pelosi said this is an unprecedented investigation that calls for an unprecedented decision. Democrats lauded the move. For example, the committee's chairman, Bennie Thompson, said Pelosi had met GOP leaders more than halfway. But as you heard there, McCarthy was pretty upset. Talking to reporters after he learned the news from Pelosi, Let's take another listen. Never Never in the history of this institution for a select committee. She admitted to me when she called me. Have they ever done something like this? I mean, he's right. Right. Like this is the first time a speaker has actually rejected members to a select committee. Why now? You think In essence, this came down to a few words in the legislation creating this panel. It dictated that McCarthy would make these pics quote in consultation with Pelosi, meaning she could veto his choices. And she warned us. This was an option. Now the thinking was this could be the case of McCarthy chose one of the more far right wing members of his party lobbying to get on the panel. This includes Georgia's Marjorie Taylor Green. So over all these choices did not appear to be in danger. For example, one of those pics Rodney Davis of Illinois, is a top Republican who already overseas capital police and while this language to consult the speakers, the same wording that was used for the Republican led select committee created to investigate the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi. It's another reminder of the extreme partisan times we're living in. Yeah. So what does all this mean for the investigation and for next steps for this panel, while this creates a new level of uncertainty for the committee, but Pelosi can point out. It's bipartisan because she appointed one Republican. That's Congresswoman Liz Cheney to the committee. And Cheney, for her part, said today that at every opportunity, McCarthy has tried to block the American people from the truth of what happened and she completely defended Pelosi's decision. That said many of the five Republican members McCarthy picked had already done prep work for the committee. For example, one of those appointees freshman representative Troy Nehls, of Texas. He's a former share from a Houston suburb. City had spent quote countless hours prepping even showed reporters a binder he was using to study. But he and others instead attacked Democrats and said This was partisan, and McCarthy vowed that they will do their own investigation. So this will add to that this heightened partisan pressures. Surrounding the probe. Davis, the Illinois Republican touched on this. Let's take a listen and frankly, there are many unanswered questions about why this capital was so unprepared that said Democrats are moving full steam ahead with their first hearing on Tuesday, they'll hear from several members of Capitol police and the D C Metropolitan Police Department who were defending the capital that day. That is NPR congressional reporter Claudio Brussels. Thank you, Claudia. Thank you much now to a Tokyo Olympics shocker. The top ranked U. S women's soccer team got routed by Sweden and its opening game today. Three Nothing NPR's Mandali del Barco was one of the very few people watching in the stadium. Here's her report.

Sweden controlled the game from the beginning to the end, crisper passes, better defense and a stinging attack that led to three goals against the U. S. The reigning World Cup champions.

"All things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles on Capitol Hill today, former Trump officials testified for the first time since the January 6th attack, taking center stage at the House Oversight Committee hearing. Bitter exchanges like this one. This is that there is a very recent reversal of you of your testimony. Absolutely not. That's ridiculous. You're ridiculous. That was Massachusetts Democrat Stephen Lynch, in one of the sharper exchanges of the day with former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller. Tell us more about how today unfolded. We are joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Chris Salas. Hey, Claudia. Hey, Alfa. So it sounds like a pretty intense day Just to be clear. This is the first time either Miller War, The former acting Attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, has testified on the insurrection. Correct that is correct. And yes, it was indeed very intense at moments like the one you just heard both Miller in Rosen, while condemning these deadly, condemning the deadly breach from the insurrection. They were steadfast in their defense of their responses that day, And as you heard there, the top Miller was ready to back down accusations questioning that. We also saw this when Illinois Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi said Miller partially owned the mayhem of that day, Let's take a listen. You were AWOL. Mr. Secretary. You were AWOL. Remember? Completely said before you said before you have responsibility for everything, Something goes wrong, Quote unquote. I own it completely 110%. And as we heard there, Miller rejected that claim, highlighting the military's response and another tense exchange, where he refused. California Democrat Ro Khanna is demand that Miller apologize. Khanna said Miller's testimony was the most offensive witness statement he's ever heard. Wow. Okay, So how did Republicans respond to all of this? Well, they wanted to focus on Democrats, and they accuse them of trying to revise the narrative of what happened on January. 61 of those members. Ohio GOP representative Jim Jordan asked Rosen to weigh in on whether the election was stolen. He said that he didn't believe so. Let's take a listen. I think it's really necessary, important for all of us to find ways to restore Our citizens face in the electoral process and in our representative system of government, So with Republicans focused on these false claims, it was really a reminder of the alternate reality that summer, trying to push in this continuing effort to defend Trump and his supporters on the day of the siege. No, I understand that this hearing it's part of multiple investigations going on in Congress right now about the insurrection in January. How does this probe figure into all of that? Well, it's a reminder. Congress is facing a very tall order to reach any significant reform to insure a breach like this never happens again. Everyone seems to agree on that, but the parties have yet to agree on how to get there. And there's a divide even in the GOP on this, as we've seen with Congresswoman Liz Cheney's removal today is the number three house Republican. She's been an outspoken critic of Trump and she's being punished, she says, for speaking the truth about Trump's role, inciting the role inciting the riot. And so House Oversight Committee chairwoman Carolyn Maloney evoked her during the hearing. Let's take a listen As Congresswoman, Cheney said last night and I quote Remaining silent. And ignoring the lie. Emboldens the liar. So, for example, the parties have been stuck on trying to put together a deal on a 9 11 style commission to examine the insurrection is a large number of Republicans or saving one expand the scope to include the racial justice protest from last year. Cheney herself said the panel should just focus on January six. Okay, So what comes next for these capital security proposals so Democrats want a barrel forward. Regardless, they want to put together a commission. They say that the top Democrat and Republican on House Homeland Security are trying to reach a deal and they're gonna try roll out. A supplemental security funding bill is early as next week, but it will be a real test of this partisan divide. Yeah, that is NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle is thank you, Claudia.

This is the first time either Miller War, The former acting Attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, has testified on the insurrection. Correct that is correct. And yes, it was indeed very intense at moments like the one you just heard both Miller in Rosen, while condemning these deadly, condemning the deadly breach from the insurrection. They were steadfast in their defense of their responses that day, And as you heard there, the top Miller was ready to back down accusations questioning that. We also saw this when Illinois Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi said Miller partially owned the mayhem of that day, Let's take a listen. You were AWOL. Mr. Secretary. You were AWOL. Remember, he said before you said before you have responsibility for everything, Something goes wrong. Quote unquote. I own it completely 110%. And as we heard there, Miller rejected that claim, highlighting the military's response and another tense exchange, where he refused. California Democrat Ro Khanna is demand that Miller apologize. Khanna said Miller's testimony was the most offensive witness statement he's ever heard. Wow. Okay, So how did Republicans respond to all of this? Well, they wanted to focus on Democrats, and they accuse them of trying to revise the narrative of what happened on January. 61 of those members. Ohio GOP representative Jim Jordan asked Rosen to weigh in on whether the election was stolen. He said that he didn't believe so. Let's take a listen. I think it's really necessary, important for all of us to find ways to restore Our citizens face in the electoral process and in our representative system of government, So with Republicans focused on these false claims, it was really a reminder of the alternate reality that summer, trying to push in this continuing effort to defend Trump and his supporters on the day of the siege. Alternate reality indeed. No, I understand that this hearing it's part of multiple investigations going on in Congress right now about the insurrection in January. How does this probe figure into all of that? Well, it's a reminder. Congress is facing a very tall order to reach any significant reform to insure a breach like this never happens again. Everyone seems to agree on that, but the parties have yet to agree on how to get there. And there's a divide even in the GOP on this, as we've seen with Congresswoman Liz Cheney's removal today is the number three house Republican. She's been an outspoken critic of Trump and she's being punished, she says, for speaking the truth about Trump's role, inciting the role inciting the riot. And so House Oversight Committee chairwoman Carolyn Maloney evoked her during the hearing. Let's take a listen As Congresswoman, Cheney said last night and I quote Remaining silent. And ignoring the lie. Emboldens the liar. So, for example, the parties have been stuck on trying to put together a deal on a 9 11 style commission to examine the insurrection is a large number of Republicans or saving one expand the scope to include the racial justice protest from last year. Cheney herself said the panel should just focus on January six. Okay, So what comes next for these capital security proposals so Democrats want a barrel forward. Regardless, they want to put together a commission. They say that the top Democrat and Republican on house Homeland Security, a trying to reach a deal, and they're gonna try roll out a supplemental security funding bill. It's early as next week, but it will be a real test of this partisan divide. That is NPR. Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle is Thank you, Claudia. Thanks so much. It's true prices are going up on lots of things from coffee to computers to cars Last month, prices surged a whopping 4.2% from a year ago. That's according to the latest government data out today, and it could spell trouble for the U. S economy. NPR's David Gora joins us now. Hey, David. Mary Louise. All right, let's talk about what is getting more expensive where we see the biggest price increases. I should say first. Overall, this is the largest increase we have seen in C P I. The consumer price index since 2008 back during the financial crisis and CP, I captures what you and I pay for the things that we buy. You mentioned cars. Something that really stands out is used Cars. Prices were up a whopping 21% from a year ago and C p I has been around since 1953. We have never seen used car prices spike like we saw them spike today. A big reason for that is new cars have gotten really hard to find. Because of a shortage of semiconductor chips that go into cars. There's a shutdown of many auto factories. Look at the numbers today. What else has gotten more expensive fresh fruit oranges in particular. Also lettuce, bacon. Prices are up across the board. Really with only a few exceptions, and gasoline is up about 50% from last year back when there weren't as many of us driving our cars because of the economic shutdown, I should say the latest cyber attack is not gonna be good news for gasoline prices as well. Yeah, no. I was considered a plenty of gas stations around the country where you will be lucky to find gas to to pay more money for right now. How much of this has to do with the pandemic? Ton. I mean, we've been spending much more time at home, so people are buying nicer furniture. Those prices went up TVs have gotten more expensive, so his audio equipment People are remodeling, adding on to their homes, and that demand has made building supplies more expensive.

"An admonishment there from Senator Patrick Leahy after an outburst of laughter during this trial. Dennis's during the debate over whether or not to have witnesses. Question we have before us is whether it should be in order to consider the debate under the rules of impeachment, any motion to subpoena witnesses or documents. And to bring it back to the news here. One of their calls is to subpoena Congresswoman Jamie Herrera Butler, Republican who did vote to impeach President Trump about his state of mind at the time of the riot at the time of the attack. And here comes the vote. This way understand is a majority vote. Of course, the eventual vote on the acquittal or conviction of the former president will be a two thirds vote. But in this case, a simple majority would proceed with witnesses. Claudia Gonzalez, our NPR NPR congressional reporter, Can you remind us what the key information that Jamie Herrera Butler says she has is and why this is only coming up today Saturday, nearly a week into this trial. Yes, as you mentioned her. Butler was one of the 10 House Republicans who voted for the impeachment of former president Trump. And she issued a statement last night saying, I've touched on this before I will touch on it again. There was a conversation between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. He relayed that to her that he had had with President Trump at the time during the insurrection. He said that when he finally reached the president that day and asked him to publicly forcefully call off that riot, the president initially repeated off falsehood that it was anti fur that had breached the capital. McCarthy refuted that told the president that these were Trump supporters. And that's when, according to McCarthy, the president said, Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election that you are, she said. Since she publicly announced her decision to vote for impeachment, she has shared these details and countless conversations and she Wanted to tell others. She called out the Patriots, who were standing next to the former vice president, as his conversations were happening or to come forward. If you have something to add here, she said, Now would be the time. So of course, this is elevated interest. For these managers to hear from her as soon as possible. Have we heard from the House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy about this conversation? Of course. McCarthy is vast, elated back and forth, condemning the president, then voting against his impeachment and flying down tomorrow Lago and taking a picture with the former president. Yeah, he has been very limited publicly in terms of how he is addressing this in his connection with the former president, So we are still waiting to hear from him on how he's reacting to all this. Tamara Keith, I want to bring you in here. To talk. Maybe about the defense that came to this call to bring her here. A butler. What were Trump's attorney saying Yes. So the attorney Vander Wien said that If you're gonna have one witness, I want 100 witnesses, and he also said that he wanted those witnesses to be deposed in person not over zoom Despite the fact that we are in a pandemic and travel is not recommended. At this time, he said. Everyone should come to his office in Philadelphia. Where he is a personal injury. Attorney Ahn do it the right way. Um, then he I think that he was sort of overstating the case to then argue, Hey, Democrats had their chance on the house side. You know, before they voted to impeach him, the house could have done a thorough investigation, which they did not do the argument then. That Jamie Raskin, the lead house impeachment manager made was that it's like a grand jury on the House side. The Senate is where the trial occurs and where, where a deposition should happen. And where in the Clinton impeachment it did. However, in the first Trump impeachment, Republicans were in the majority, and they chose not to call witnesses. This is a good moment to bring in Nina Totenberg, our legal affairs correspondent, Nina, I think we were all noting Just outright laughter in that moment, But can you talk about kind of the legal implications of what he was suggesting what he was suggesting, and maybe why people responded the way they did. Mr Romney, and we're going to bring Nina back in a moment, but Scott can bring it to you. Obviously you've been watching the last couple of days. That was a rare moment. People could call it levity, but I think it's signals just kind of where heads are out at this point. Yeah, I think Vander Wien has certainly certainly been antagonistic at times toward the U. S. Senators who are serving as witnesses in this trial at one point suggesting that something that Senator Tuberville of Alabama said was hearsay. He's of course, a witness in the That case. He had a contentious back and forth moment with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders as well. And the question of witnesses and whether they're appropriate or not, is kind of a double edged sword for the defense team. And Claudia Gristle is I'm curious what you think about this because on one hand Vander being in Bruce Castor keeps saying. The House Democrats don't know the full story here. They're saying they're relying a news reports that you've saying here They have open questions about what happened in the White House on the six and yet they voted for impeachment and move forward without fully investigating their case. Including at the same time they're saying it's not their responsibility to fill in those blanks on those key questions of President Trump's mindset. Yes. So this is going to be a different scenario that we're looking at right now. Thies managers Thies House impeachment managers are going to be facing a lot of pressure not to call witnesses because there is going to be a look back on this. There's been talk about a 9 11 style commission to really do a deep dive on what happened the day of the insurrection. The factors that led up to it. So these managers are under pressure to call for witnesses..

For the second time in a little more than a year, House impeachment managers will stride across the capital and set in motion an impeachment trial in the Senate, they will be delivering a single article of impeachment against former President Donald Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is taking aim at Trump, rejecting some Republican arguments that the former president should escape accountability because he isn't president anymore.

Specifically, Today marks a ceremonial start to get this trial started. We'll see the house clerk and acting sergeant at arms, leading this team of nine impeachment managers to the Senate. It's reminiscent of what we saw just over a year ago after Trump was impeached the first time, but this time around, Jamie Raskin of Maryland will lead this new nine member team of managers. And then he'll read the article in the chamber tomorrow, The senators will be sworn in and the Senate will issue its summons for Trump That's followed next week by more pretrial steps, and then on Monday, February 8th briefs or do from both sides.

This comes on the heels of a Sunday meeting between a group of moderate senators and House members with White House economic adviser Brian D's to figure out a way forward there. Right and and quiet. What is your sense at this point of how many Republican senators are even seriously considering to convict Trump? There's a possibility at least a few Republicans could join Democrats to convict Trump, especially the moderate members who have already said Trump played a role in siding that January 6 mob And McConnell has also left the door open there for a potential that he, too, could be considering a vote to convict the president. A conviction would set up another vote toe lock trump out from serving in federal office ever again. But it's a tall order.

Meanwhile, the GOP is dealing with her own interparty challenges field with how to move the party forward with or without Trump.

This was a personal Endeavor for US state representative Justin Slaughter says the death of George Floyd and others along with the summer protests and marches over policing and racial and social justice galvanized the Black caucus. It was time says slaughter for lawmakers to change a policy that's had a disproportionately negative impact on people of color. Forcing many to remain in jail or in some cases, except plea deals as a way to get out and what slaughter says was an emotional week, Lawmakers narrowly approved a package of bills that included the Illinois Pretrial Fairness Act. It eliminates Bale, and that's a step that activists across the country called key to criminal justice reform. Members felt that they were taking a vote for history and they felt they needed to collaborate with us to go from protests to progress. Slaughter says The next step is figuring out which risk assessment.

"Hours hours after after President President Joe Joe Biden Biden and and Vice Vice President President Kamila Kamila Harris Harris were were sworn sworn in in the the Senate Senate got got back back to work. Today, Control shifted from Republicans, two Democrats by the slimmest possible margin. First Vice President Harris swore in the new Democratic senators from Georgia who will give her party the numerical edge. And that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God. Yeah. Congratulations to tell us more. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gristle aside there. Hi, Ari. Tell us more about what happened today. So the Senate finalized their transfer of power from a Republican led chambers has been the case since 2015 to 1 that is divided 50 50 and led by one Democrat as the tiebreaker. And that's Vice President Kamala Harris. Democrats 12 weeks ago. But finally today, these two new senators from Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff's who shifted control of the chamber were sworn in and this is ahead of some very heavy lifts ahead. The chambers. New Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in his floor in his former marks, said quote I need to catch my breath so much is happening. But he's already highlighted three big tasks ahead a Senate impeachment trial for former President Donald Trump confirming Biden's Cabinet nominees and taking up a $1.9 trillion biting proposal for new coronavirus coronavirus relief aid. Yeah, Those are three very big tasks. What are Republicans saying about the next steps? We saw Republican leaders extending all of branch today trying to bridge some of this dramatic divide the trump years brought with Democrats. For example, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged this transfer of power in his hopes to work with Biden. And this is the theme I heard from other Republicans today, they thought bite, instruct the right tone. In his inauguration speech, lifting these bipartisan hopes I talked to Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski, Let's take a listen. You can still disagree from a policy perspective and you can do so in ways that are still respectful and allow you to continue to work towards other goals. I also caught up with GOP Senator Susan Collins of Maine, who sounded a similar note. She said Biden struck those right themes of unity and a call for parties to stop viewing one another as adversaries, and she stands ready to advance their common goals. And West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told Capitol Hill reporters today that a bipartisan group that includes workhouse game Collins would be meeting with Biden administration in the coming days. So again, this bipartisan theme was much of what I heard today from both sides. So how are they plan to tackle impeachment, massive legislation and confirming Biden's cabinet all at once? That will be a real test for whether members can talk into gum at the same time, as they like to say. Democrats are betting they can. One proposal that's being entertained is whether they can split their days between an impeachment trial and confirming these nominees. But first they need to reach a power sharing agreement with Republicans. Then they hope to tackle these big ticket items at warp speed in the coming days. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Greece, Alice Thank you. Thanks for having me.
