"Funny. Others instructive, none got more attention this week than the farewell address by congressman Adam kinzinger, the Republican, of course, a member of the January 6th committee. And left on an island by his own party, because of his views on Donald Trump, on the 2020 election, on January 6th, of course, here's Adam kinzinger on the House floor. The Republican Party used to believe in a big tent, which welcomed the tired, the poor, the huddled masses, yearning to breathe free. Now, we shelter the ignorant, the racist who only stoke anger and hatred to those who are different than us. Pretty heavy duty. And he said a lot more than that as we reassemble the panel Rick Davis and Jeannie chansa no Bloomberg politics contributors. I know that you've been, you've been close to the congressman Rick and following the events of January 6th, he's been through a lot here, taking aim at his own party with some pretty harsh rhetoric on the floor. Will it matter in the end? Sure. Yeah, I think these things matter. I think the January 6th committee mattered it helped define what happened on January 6th against all the other lies and misdirection that was given by a lot of the Republican leadership in the house. I think his participation Liz Cheney's on that gave it credibility well beyond even what they expected. Both their conduct were exemplary and I think that we'll still be talking about the January 6th committee for quite some time. So I think he had an impact and I don't think we've heard the last of Adam kinzinger. Well, that's my question for you. I mean, this was a speech for the ages. It might have been the most important speech he ever gave. Will it will it be reflected upon when he's running for national office? Oh, I think that this speech will appear in a lot of different places to try and motivate and encourage people of like minded persuasion to get involved in politics in the future. He has a very strong pack operation that's trying to recruit people who actually take their oath of office seriously. And I would say one of the things that he talked about is the oath of office and the requirement to support and defend the constitution. And what's interesting to me is so many of the retiring members, both on the House and the Senate side and in both parties. Talked about their oath of office and how important that is. He took aim at Democrats as well Genie. Let's go back to the farewell address in congressman Adam kinzinger, listen. Many of you have asked me where are all the good Republicans? Over the past two years, democratic leadership had the opportunity to stand above the fray. Instead, they poured millions of dollars into the campaigns of maga Republicans. The same candidates, President Biden called a national security threat. To ensure these good Republicans did not make it out of their respective primaries. This is no longer politics as usual. This is not a game. If you keep stoking the fire, you can't point the fingers when our great experiment goes up in flames. It's been interesting to me Genie to watch Democrats warm up to Adam kinzinger to warm up to Liz Cheney almost as if we, you know, there was there was almost an embrace. Why don't you guys just become Democrats knowing that they actually disagree on basically every point of policy? Will Democrats listen to Adam kinzinger now? You know, if you go back 5 years, the idea that Democrats would be in bracing Liz Cheney to any extent is sort of absurd unfathomable. You can't even imagine it, and yet here we are. You know, I think they will listen to him. They will listen to her on these issues. And he does make a really important point about what Democrats did in this election cycle by supporting these trumpian far right candidates in the hopes they would be easier to be. And of course, they did they did pay off for Democrats and a place potentially like New Hampshire. So, you know, it's a win. So it's a hard case to make to them, but one of the challenges I have with his speech quite frankly is that it was very long on platitudes and very short and specifics, now he's got this country first organization that Rick mentioned. He's working there. But the reality is, is, you know, for him to accuse public officials of playing politics, is, you know, yes, and what? So what are you going to do about it? What are the specific reforms you want to introduce you think should be introduced because you can't just hope that politicians are not going to play politics because they are because that's how the system is designed. He had very limited things to say about systematic reform, and that was true of to me true burr and everybody else who spoke. And that is a troubling aspect of these farewell addresses this year. Fair point there, but I have to admit, Rick, if it's working, if this is working, Democrats and Republicans will do it again. This wasn't new in this election cycle. It might have been more pronounced, but the idea of Democrats propping up maga candidates knowing that they might be weaker in a general election

"To the Senate floor those violent rioters were at the end of the day I again I think about everybody who works in the capital and the trauma that they experienced that day And I hope that everyone is taking good care of themselves I know it was an undisclosed location as it's referred to in the capital where you were brought that day I just wonder wherever that was If you've gone back to that room since then I have been back to that room a variety of times for a variety of reasons And every once in a while I'll be walking through and I'll go oh wait a minute This is where we sat for hours and hours and hours I recall them bringing the big televisions in so that we could actually see what was happening It does feel like a different world however Senator Tina Smith Democrat from Minnesota I want to thank you for your time today Thanks for being with us on Bloomberg radio Thanks so much Joe We turned out to essential figure in the House investigation into the events of January 6th congressman Adam kinzinger Republican from Illinois Of course one of only two Republicans on the House select committee for which he's been deeply criticized by many members of his own party We should also note he is a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard congressman Thank you for joining us on what I'm sure is an incredibly busy day for you What did you think of the president's speech today It was stronger a stronger tone than we've heard from this president and it pointed squarely at the former president Was that the right move Look yes I think it should be very rare to do something like that The former president quite often did that always point in poking at prior presidents It should be rare but this is an ongoing crisis And I think the president for all the things I may agree or disagree with him on he's taken the right approach of still focusing on governance But I think that speech today was necessary I think the outrage was necessary I don't necessarily think it's going to convince anybody that's not already convinced but I think it's important to put a basic standard for democracy down And I think you showed the proper amount of rage in doing that You wrote an op-ed in USA Today in which you say we are in the fight of our lives You start the call on the top line writing America is more divided today than it was on January 6th 2021 Why is that I put it to a number There's a number of people I can fault There's I think everybody in their own mind bears some blame particularly if you deny truth I think leaders had an opportunity after January 6th to stand together and actually do what the title says to lead and say look this election wasn't stolen Look as Republicans we lost Let's focus on figuring out how to convince more people to vote for us And instead some buried their heads some went quiet Some continued to press conspiracy and lies and in that process if you're somebody that believes the truth you're going to be angry at the people pushing the conspiracies and the conspiracies daily get more down to our negative divisive and we're in a bad place and I got to tell you a year ago prior to January 6th I always set a faster question I am I am very long and optimistic on America I still am but in the short and medium term I think it could get worse Well okay so there you go I was going to ask you if we are more divided today than a year ago with that also not suggested it could or will happen again Has anything changed that would prevent another January 6th So no nothing's changed I guess to the extent that the insurrectionists learn what they did incorrectly and how they could correct that in 2024 for instance we have also learned what the weaknesses in are in the system that we could strengthen and change I think there's a bit of light which is yeah the Republican Party will always be a major party 60% sadly or 70% believe the election was stolen But 70% of Americans believe the election was legit I think that's a very important number Is the capital itself more secure though if there was another attack specifically on the complex Yes I think so There's work to do I do think it's more secure I mean even just clarifying things like rules of engagement And I think part of the problem with defending the capital was this kind of lack of imagination that's the opening line of even the 9 11 report which is never expected that this was going to happen Now we can expect now we can think about it that way But we shouldn't have to be I mean we will be but we shouldn't have to be in a position where we're increasing a security posture of the building that represents American freedom Would you support reforming the electoral count act as we were discussing with senator Smith Yes a 100% I think that's where a lot of energy should be focused on reforming the electoral count act Trying to find a compromise on the Voting Rights Act which is about pre clearance not in fact anything to do with January 6th But these are areas that I think we can find bipartisan grounds in agreement We've got to get out of our patterns that Republicans had for so.

"Last four years how far we have come in a bad way. How backwards looking we are. How Much We peddle darkness and division. That is, um Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who was criticizing his own Republican party as he grapples with how to address the post president Trump era yesterday on NBC's Meet the Press. We'll see how that turns out. Perkins eager, but obviously the former president has a new legal team here in the last 24 hours. Will be attempting to fight for him and his impeachment to trial. Michael Bauer joins us here from NBC News radio to talk and discuss more this. How did this all come about Michael? Good morning. Good morning, Tony. So what we hear is that you had Butch powers and another South Carolina based attorney, Debra Barba, who both on Saturday confirmed that they were departing Trump's legal team and taking their lawyers with him. So you had a total of five lawyers walk away as of Saturday night, and according What we're hearing here. The person familiar with the departures said that that happened because Trump wanted those attorneys to argue that there was mass election fraud and that the election was stolen from him rather than focus on the legality of convicting a president after he's left office, so They clearly wanted to take a look at whether or not a president could be charged with impeachment. After he's no longer in office. Trump wanted them to really have her home, the element that he had the election stolen from them, and he was not receptive to discussing apparently much else about that. So that's where you see that legal team, the five of them walk away. Now, with that. It's unclear whether Trump's new lawyers David showing, and Bruce Castor Jr. Are on board with that policy would seem like that's what you know you would be in expectation from President Trump that you would be interested in defending the election stolen from you if they signed on to be the legal team, But we haven't heard anything. We will shortly because we do know the legal briefs that are due tomorrow on you've got a trial that is set to begin opening arguments one week from tomorrow. So They're under a lot of pressure on a very short period of time here to be here. What we have heard is that David showing one of the trial lawyers in this particular case is somebody who was on board the legal staff of President Trump for the past couple of weeks, so he didn't necessarily going into this blindly. He's had his foot in the water already for a defense what he's going to do with it. How he's going to take it, at least at this point are unclear, but we should have some or idea tomorrow. So you're saying that basically President Trump is not dealing with? It doesn't sound like her one his attorneys to deal with the subject at hand of what he's being charged with. I mean, it's kind of like, okay, you're charged for, you know, you know, I get in trouble for Ah, traffic crash, but, you know, he's like looking at it as a traffic ticket or something. He's not dealing with the issue here. It seems it would seem that the legal team that he had wanted to deal with that issue or or maybe it's a better look at it is kind of this way. Only that when you're looking at the case where you've got only five Republican senators that have agreed to go through the constitutionality of this, it would seem like the remaining ones to try to get a conviction. You have to try to sell on weather and a former president could even be impeached on some level that sounds like a good legal means and odds to get you to a place where you would not be convicted of that, rather than focusing on election fraud in the election being stolen, which President Trump Is going to say was the foundation for the comments that he made that eventually led to the riots or at the Capitol. So right now what you're hearing from legal experts and this is what the kind of indication is While you have a mass resignation, like this happens historically, if a defense attorney is being made to make an argument that he or she believes is a lie or is dangerous or is unethical and that seemingly what happened on Saturday night Now whether or not that means there's gonna be an entire shift here from the new legal team will have to see. I imagine they'll be a hybrid. Of sorts between the two legal foundations here to try to make a case against President Trump's impeachment. But we won't know for sure. Until we see that paperwork issue tomorrow and the former lawyers in case people Don't know This have defended people like Nikki Haley and others that are Republicans. So there are Republican based, so to speak kind of backers here. A Sephora's that goes, had experience like the DOJ and other elements. Amanda's well, Yeah, so so one more thing, And that is, Is there any chance that the president can seek or get Another 10 days. Extra Tioga get his attorneys, you know, be like it was like this is going to be. They gave him that full almost two weeks to get his defense team together and be ready for opening statements. I think they're going to stick with that. Exactly. It's just a matter of how he has to adjust things going into that. Okay. Michael Bauer. NBC News Radio. I thank you for your time. Thanks. You gotta stay safe. Tell me all right, YouTube. That's Michael Bauer here from NBC News radio in Kentucky. Ana's Morning news. When we come back, I'll have a check of sports..

The Saudi Arabia-Russia oil war, explained
"Let me begin with a very silly rudimentary question that is like a lay up for you but to a lay person like me it's it's actually confusing so I'm watching the news today about corona virus and I was watching Maria Bartiromo show earlier when I was in the green room getting ready for America's newsroom on the news channel and much of the discussion on the panel surrounded this whole fight over oil prices and and oil and how that might affect fracking and and shale producing here in the United States and I was sort of thrown for a loop a little bit because I associated the selloff on the markets recently completely with corona virus but there's this other massive story that I just haven't had the band with to really follow or process properly can you just walk us through what's happening on that side yeah sure Saudi Arabia basically lives off its oil sector if you'll all of its government payments to its citizens that those payments go don't go to its citizens and they have a problem the Saudi Arabia got really mad Russia refused to cut its oil output by half a million barrels a day so Saudi Arabia which has tremendous supply capacity it's considered quote the central bank of oil for years or decades Saudi Arabia can easily open the spigots and it did it drove down prices sparking a global price for during week demand when much of the world is in recession so the fact that Saudi plans to now increase their oil output per day above ten million barrels that's the problem we currently pumps about nine point seven million barrels a day but the thing is it has the capacity to ramp up to to put out twelve and a half million barrels a day do you see oil prices plunging by massive double digit drops and weak but here's the flip side of that the plunge in prices we could maybe see two dollars maybe a Buck fifty a gallon right as the summer driving season starts plus it helps the jet fuel costs for US airlines battered by the corona virus problem when oil prices go down like this says that the trend of it the oil patch guide to saying this is a one trillion dollar stimulus for the world economy so there's always an offset so when we saw that when there's a shake out like that when oil prices plunge like that the shale producers in the oil patch guys are kind of on the margin they borrowed a lot of money to fund their operations that jump on high interest rate they can't make money when oil plunges like that often it said they may be forty five dollars a barrel maybe more it's a break even point for it R. U. S. producers and other producers that so you know so when they boil price plunges they don't have the cash flow to pay back from from forty five which would be into what well if it goes below that I mean we're talking now I hate I feel bad for guys in all the patch but the I'm talking to traders in the pits they're talking thirty dollars a barrel of so you know so that's painful for a sector that has stopped us from tipping into recession under the Obama administration does it get any credit much credit for that but it did to protect the food going into depression thanks to the recession forgive me reception reception during the crash but it also has made us do a political force around the world right now the biggest producers around the world prices were independent we went from being dependent to independent to a net exporter which is a huge development for for the U. S. economy but Elizabeth before we turn to corona virus one of the countries that wasn't mentioned in your answer but is at play in very much in the mix with this price war that's going on in the oil market you mentioned Russia you mention of course the U. S. you mentioned Saudi Arabia how does China factor in well it's interesting China factors big because China buys a lot of its oil from Saudi it does take up a lot from Russia but truth be told it does play a lot of Iranian oil and that is saying of course the trump administration because of sanctions against Iran US crude is also a big player for China China has always been watchful of what goes on in the Persian Gulf with the tree for mood attack so you know there is that China is China's a big fourth two given demand there in that country it's it's a powerful force since since you mention just to jump and you mentioned Iran as well my wheels are now turning in my head and I'm thinking about the corona virus disaster in Iran where they were not taking it seriously they were completely dishonest and opaque about everything and now you have a significant number of the members of their sort of fake parliament who have been infected with corona virus it is a huge huge problem with the with rates of people infected very high and of course we don't know the real numbers because it's a very secretive regime you have that problem piled on top of what was already a period of significant economic turmoil and hardship where you saw demonstrators in the streets of people being killed and imprisoned now if you put on top of that a collapse in the price of oil that is the last thing that the Iranian regime probably wants right Iran also filtered into Turkey and and into India yes you're absolutely right about what's going on on the streets of Iran I mean if they did that what I I have to stress it again I mean our oil sector is the powerful the US domestic and geopolitical force so anything that can be done to support it it's good for the country so you know do I see Russia interfering here that's the rumor mill cranking that you know we understand that you know Russia's Putin has been battling it's gonna minute metal this way be the oil market market I mean that's just a rumor we don't know that for sure we do know that Russia unlike unlike a lot of these players they've got a gigantic what's called the sovereign wealth funds like you know I'm always laughing when nor of wind you know Bernie Sanders brings up the Nordic model as can even ritualism capitalism Norway has one of the biggest sovereign wealth funds in the world built by the oil it's it's massive oil and and gas sector so Russia has the defense of advantage here they kept a hundred fifty billion dollar wealth fund to offset any slump and bolster the ruble I'm not sure that Iran has that so turning to corona virus later on the program congressman Adam Kinzinger a Republican from Illinois he's gonna be here I'm curious to ask him about the appetite among house Republicans Senate Republicans people on the hill on the right side of the aisle is there an appetite there for what the president has just been talking about the last day or so we saw a bit of a better day certainly on Wall Street today than we did yesterday fueled in part by a stimulus package that might be employed to help prop up certain businesses and help people who might be displaced or quarantine for periods of time who couldn't work out what is your assessment of what the president has suggested it's nothing official yet what do you think would be effective what don't you think would be effective in is there a political will to get that sort of thing down in your view I'd not sure they have the political will I think I yeah I just we could just cross that Steven Mnuchin is now going to meet with Nancy Pelosi this is as of early earlier in the day you know so I do I just want to see the details of it I don't know if it's going to be a two percentage point payroll tax cut that the president wants and that the short term stimulus that does put a lot of money in people's hands of you know it will impede the holiday that will last until June the payroll tax cut for Willie structure collapses and wait for it until after the election right SBA loans are they going to be interest free you know I am I'm going to get on a phone call with a lot of hospital directors tomorrow I want to understand what their needs all right in the face of the corona virus outbreak so you know we already have a one mile quarantine zone around newer shell I'm here in New York City this is north of the city I just wonder if there's any talk about what the doctors and hospitals on the front lines of this need and if those needs are going to be met I know the White House is intensifying the push for coronavirus measure of what is that Democrats appetite for the Democrats would have to sign off on any payroll tax cut how do you view the state of the economy because we just saw on Friday another monster jobs report it seems like absent this epidemic this health crisis things were continuing term steam roll right along in a really positive way to what extent could this situation coronavirus grind all of that to hold or could it be you know is there an opportunity for what was an underlying strong economy to bounce back very quickly what what what's your sense of that you know I like that guy I like these questions because I think you sense of them totally geek and nerd at heart I mean I've been a key key highlights of blood that could directly right I mean you know I'm geeky and nerdy United but study all sorts of trend lines that cover corporate accounting scandals like testified before Congress about the IRS twice I get into the footnotes of it I'm just watching data I like watching data crossing I think this economy is really strong I think it's in a powerful floating right now and while it's a powerful I was surprised Wall Street was surprised to see solid two hundred fifty three thousand jobs report last Friday that says the bid you know the numbers coming in for temporary right when you know the corona virus we knew about starting in December you know in the revisions to the prior month went up I'm looking at an S. and P. five hundred that has quadrupled over eleven years I'm looking at apple doubling within about two years time Microsoft doubling with an attack around two years time I'm looking at S. and P. five hundred and the two hundred day moving average it's holding its finding support at a trend line that sort of connecting to these other bottoms we saw in October two thousand eleven and December twenty eighteenth what do I say those those around government shutdown fight so those are sort of market crack up but when you see the S. and P. holding at that level you have to say what supporting it there's not a bear market capitulation right now I don't know if we cut the bottom yesterday for going to continue as the coronavirus progresses but I do think it will probably likely get worse before it gets better but I think we're in a solid position in terms of other countries around the world to booklet so whether this out of this is the time I think for leadership this is the time not to panic not to go off in and on any speculation you read on social media it's a time for calm and leadership in I feel pretty calm and strong right now personally that we are going to get through this for sure well if you like that sort of analysis you can have an hour of it every single night on fox business network six PM eastern
