"It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Audie Cornish. President Biden traveled to Houston today to see for himself how Texans are faring following last week's winter weather disaster. But Biden is also expected to address criticism for reopening a trump era facility that housed hundreds of unaccompanied teenagers crossing the border from Mexico. The White House insists these are temporary facilities needed because of the rise in traffic at the border and also to ensure social distancing requirements due to the pandemic. But some advocates say this is far too close to the Trump Administration's policy. Here with more is NPR. White House correspondent Franco Ordonez and Franco to start the by the ministrations ignited essentially a panic among some advocates. When they reopened this facility near the border in Texas. Can you tell us more about the response? Yeah, This facility is in career So Springs, Texas, and it will hold 700 kids. The most public outcry came from representative Alexander Acosta Cortez. She tweeted that this was not okay and never will be and no matter what the administration or what party, But our concerns are echoed by groups like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Clear along the associate US program director of Human Rights Watch told me today. If this is a short term solution that may be okay, but that they've seen this type of large orphanage type care in the past, and it was riddled with problems. I think people are right to be concerned, and I think people are right to be speaking out and trying to hold the fine administrations to promises because The president was elected on a platform that included a humane approach to the border. You know, And she says opening up. These massive facilities like the one in Texas really raised questions about whether they're following through with that promise. What is the Biden White House saying about this? So President Biden addressed this today in an interview with wanna be shown, he said there were thousands of unaccompanied Children coming across the border in this search for hope and expectation is.
Israel freezes plan to send vaccines to foreign allies
"The story coming out of israel this week. was That israeli journalists. Kelly cohen reported that israel's going to send one hundred thousand vaccines to nineteen nations around the world. Some of these nations announced that they were moving are had already moved embassies or missions to jerusalem honduras guatemala czech republic. There was no debate at all In the security cabinet no authorization by the justice. Minister of foreign minister and benny was the defense minister. And by the way interim justice minister said that thinks he's a running running kingdom and not a state by this decision obviously. Israel's already criticized for not making it a priority to vaccinate. The palestinians may talk a little bit more about that. But it isn't making us look better right this these one hundred thousand. Vaccinations being sent abroad. No i didn't think it is. Because i mean vaccine diplomacy which is a new thing now in our will. But he's a real thing you know with china india jostling with each other to distribute vaccines to win influence and goodwill in asia etc. You know united arab emirates is is giving vaccine to egypt. Obviously this is a thing to be doing. Russia trying to boost its profile. But the problem here is. It's very transparent. The israelis basically rewarding friends. You know that hungry set up. A trade mission in jerusalem or the republicans promised to do something similar and therefore because of that recognition Be wants to reward those countries Vaccine i mean it goes down well for the reason you know. Which is the story. A big story around the world is that israel is not accenting Its nearest neighbors and therefore misses something. I think about vaccine diplomacy well. Why don't we just talk about that. Because of course that has reached a new audience that notion of what israel's doing not doing vaccine right and it reached a new audience in you're referring to the snl clip that How shall you say this. Caused a bit of a ruckus this week. So let's listen in and talk a little bit more about reporting that the vaccinated half of their population. And i'm gonna guess it's the jewish half. I mean obviously you mentioned this. Jonathan about how if I think you said this one of the previous episodes if this was new zealand. We wouldn't be hearing at the end of the vaccination thing but because it's israel and it's politically charged. There's there's added complexity to the story. Yeah i mean you know you states say. The snl clip went viral jojo. Avars use that word to me. That was a big moment. Really because it's mainstream american comedy. If that is now it seems to me. There's a judgment there. Such a night live making the among its audience. There will be a perception as a more left wing. Frankly view of israel than i think would have been true a generation ago And you can make a joke like that sort of edgy but the the among kinda millennial snl audience who. Let's say you know. Revere alexandria ocasio cortez. The idea that israel is basically a little bit racist is a joke that lands without audience. That's what i think. Snl thinking there and just on the point about vaccine diplomacy. It seems to me that is the piece that's missing. Which is okay. You think you get a little bit of goodwill in hungary czech republic or whatever but actually what is noticed around the world and we can get into the arguments for and against is. The palestinians are not being vaccinated by israeli vaccine. And that's the big picture to the point where it took butter than snl joke.

You have to go through the senate parliamentarian who is the referee who will say whether or not provision of what you're trying to put through Are related to the budget whether they pass muster and the senate parliamentarian. She said that the fifteen dollar wage does not. I don't think this is going to be the end of the fight on the fifteen dollars minimum wage. But it's not going to be in covid relief bill all right.

Like i m at a full ten fighter flight thought i was going to die like ten minutes ago then thought i was gonna die again because i have to tell you. We're outside in this hallway alone. I'm banging on this door. And i'm thinking and i'm fully expecting one of these insurrectionists to turn the corner with a gun and that it would be over again. Clueless alexandria ocasio cortez described terrifying experience at the capitol on january. The sixth in that instagram live video earlier this week and ever since conservative media has been trying to smear him as a lion claiming she exaggerated danger she was in because she was not at the capitol building which the riots is breached but in a nearby office building on the capitol complex and now her republican colleague. Nancy mace of south carolina has joined the bad faith attacks on air sees credibility tweeting yesterday quote unto doors down from asean. No insurrectionist stormed out hallway along with a fox news article about aoc facing backlash for a of the event. Nancy mace paul. Don't even further in an interview on fox news that afternoon. Not at one moment during the events of january six at any writer or any insurrectionist come down. The hallways were offices are located. I initially took to task the press for making these claims taking these claims of pocket politic levels and and all i did was state the facts i live in in reality i deal with facts and not fiction and i said that there were no writers in the hallways of cannon. I'm doors down from you. And she lost it today. She doesn't deal in reality. She hasn't been doing that today. I think it's really important that we take members to task when they're not being honest with the american people hold on i of. Afc of acclaimed insurrection in our hallways but more importantly in terms of the threat. Nancy mace with that day too. So what did she say about it. The time well in the midst of the riots on january the six cheat tweeted about evacuating her office and canon between nearby threats. He nearby threat. The next morning she described the danger she felt. She was in one point when we were evacuated because of the bomb threat. The pipe bomb threat. I was stuck in a narrow tunnel with other people.

So to be clear nancy. Mace wants to carry a gun and barricaded herself in her office. But aoc is lying about an exaggerating the threat. These people are shameful. we will know.

Congress gets involved with GameStop and Robinhood
"Story has been crazy but is it all legal whether it's the flurry of retail traders drug stock prices or the hedge funds and partner companies trying to maintain their dominance wall street is entering some new territory and the rules. Aren't really clear here to explain. Why congress is actually starting to involve is recruits. Ronnie mola sherani. Hey daddy so catch me up on game stop so we talked here on the show about retail traders mobilizing on read. It obviously A key part of the internet to buy hundred game. Stop stock right. And then there's this. Hedge fund called melvin capital but hedge for the general were shorting the stock and they lost all this money. What happened since we last talked about game. Stop so basically robin hood. This commission free app that everyone's been using to buy all these memes stocks like games up. Amc announced that it was actually going to restrict trading on certain stocks including game. Stop rate as all. These people were making a lot of money in the stock price was super high. And as a result everyone got really upset especially these retail investors. A lot of people joined this class action lawsuit saying that robinhood manipulated the market by restricting trades and caused them to lose a lot of money. Sort of this. This platform has become Now being dogged by allegations as it's an tank for one side or another. So why would robin and do this. Why would they yup. They're supposed to just facilitate trades and not care whether game stock goes up or down. Don't they make money on volume so they want more activity. But why would robinhood care if some hedge funds were taking a hit. So i don't think robin hood did care that hedge funds retaining hit. There's a lot of confusion about this but basically it comes down to this plumbing about how the market works and how trades are actually executed that you would never really need to know but essentially because all of these people were investing in these really volatile stocks stocks whose prices go up and down. Robinhood has to keep a certain amount of money. These deposits with clearing houses that are based on how volatile a stock is toronto. Keep some money. Just in case stuff goes race yes essentially and because so. Many people were trading in these really volatile stocks. They had to keep a lot more money. Something like tenfold. What they're used to. And they just didn't have the money for so they actually had to get an infusion of cash rely on a few of their investors to give them a billion plus dollars in order that they could keep letting people trade came out said that we didn't want to stop anyone from trading. Anything this has nothing to do with pets funds or anything. This was just a. We didn't have enough money to clear. These deposits okay so for all the conspiracy theories that have been going on about robin hood somehow being on the take or something like that. You're saying the explanation is actually more boring. It's just has to do with the way that complex financial from his actions like this happened right. And i mean it doesn't help that the way that robin hood makes money is it actually has this other company called citadel securities actually executed trades. And they pay robin hood and they make money because they sell the stocks for a little bit more than they buy them for. They make a few pennies on each trade. And then the guy who owns citadel it all securities also owns a hedge fund called citadel which helps bail out melvin capital which was short and game. Stop okay so there's some associations between between Robin hood and the people who were shorting stock. Yes but they're saying this had nothing to do with the decision they made. That was simply because the deposit requirements for too big sure. Sure okay so now what happens now. I mean so. We're starting to see some action in washington about this. Obviously this politically appealing to a lot of people because you can run against wall street running in silicon valley run against the rich people like. Tell me what we can expect. Obviously there's a lot going on dc but the seems like something that could have some. Bipartisan outrage to it yeah you saw lawmakers on both sides of the tweeting and calling for hearings. There's definitely going to be multiple hearings in congress about what happened. Precisely lawmakers are pretty happy to find any reason to call into question. What's going on wall street. And why a lot of this seems very unfair conservative. Republicans like ted cruz want some answers. Progressive democrats warn zero cossio. Cortez are making a big deal about this. Warren obviously has a background in financial regulation. Tell me tell me what she's thinking. About what congress should do about this just so we get a flavor of the types of things being talked about washington. Yeah she's saying there needs to be an sec investigation. The sec needs to do their job. Make sure there's more transparency in financial markets. Make sure it's not rigged. Make sure there's no manipulation so she's sort of just calling for them to figure out what's going on. Are they doing anything about this yet. So the sec side. It's monitoring the situation. It's also going to look into whether any investors were disadvantaged because they weren't allowed to buy these certain securities It's also important to know the sec's in transition right now. They have an acting chair but they're waiting for their nominee Gary gansler to actually be confirmed. But in the meantime yeah. You're you're just gonna see the sec monitoring the situation. They makes me wonder. How does robin feel about sort of these allegations or conspiracy. Theories robert is now being a little bit more open about what happened and they were in the initial kind of crisis mode. Yeah i mean. They've lifted some of the limits that they had on securities. You could now by game stop again if you buy a shares of amc. They're also going on the sort of like pr offensive. Where they're saying exactly what happened. The they wanna tell you all about clearing houses they want to tell you about the deposits the volatility. You know how how they had to spend so much money this time. So like even the vlad ten of went on clubhouse yesterday with your skin kind of tried to explain exactly what happened. you know. And they're just trying to say this wasn't some sort of giant wall street cabal. This was a really boring thing that had to do with deposit requirements.
Robinhood CEO speaks out after GameStop stock chaos
"Robin hoods roller coaster ride and a new interview from the company's ceo. Trying to slow things down. The popular free brokerage app has experienced unprecedented high volume of trading as well read it reading retail traders pile into a few highly. Shorted stocks in a move organized. In part on the irreverent wall street bet sub reddit. The volume was so overwhelming and companies. You've been hearing about maybe again after a few years game stop. Amc blackberry and nokia but robin hood suspended trading in those stocks on thursday. Wow the reaction to this move was swift and surprising both congresswoman out of cossio. Cortez and senator. Ted cruz found themselves on the same side of an issue. Both tweeting that robin hoods moves were unacceptable and at the expense of the little guy investor over the hedge funds feeling the squeeze when stocks they shorted suddenly shot up a thousand percent in the legend. Robin hood stole from the rich to give to the poor so this was a confusing metaphor yesterday for everybody. Robin hood said it was a risk management decision to protect investors the markets and the firm. The company has to deposit money to a clearinghouse based on the volume of trades. And they feared they'd be unable to meet the anticipating deposit requirements now. The company's ceo joined our andrew. Ross sorkin of squawk box just earlier this week on the power of retail investors. It is a huge time for retail investors. Check your feed for that conversation and then take a listen to this one done just two days later. When the company was dealing with the anger of the robin hoodies they're typically younger users and trying to raise money through credit lines to ensure it had enough capital to resume trading on these volatile stocks. Here's andrew flat. Ten of is with us right now and we appreciate you joining us on a day where there are so many questions there are frankly as you know a lot of angry customers out there and a lot of questions about what took place in the decisions that you made to limit so many your customers ability to buy stocks like game. Stop questions about whether you have a liquidity problem. Whether you're trying to protect them from themselves whether citadel did this explain what happened today. Thank you for having me on the show again andrew. So what happened. Today was as you pointed out. We had to make a very difficult decision. It's been a it's been a challenging day. We made the decision in the morning to limit the buying of about thirteen securities on our platform so to be clear customers could still sell those securities if they had positions in them and they could also trade in the thousands of other security is on our platform so it was a difficult decision. And that's what we had to do as part of normal operations but explain. Why did you do this. What did the call you and tell you you had to do this. Was there a problem inside. The company in terms of liquidity in terms of the demand deposits. The you had to put it in front to the exchanges. What led to this sure and let me let me explain exactly how this works. First of all i want to address some of the misinformation. That's been out there. There's a lot of a. We absolutely did not do this. At the direction of a market maker or hedge fund or anyone we row to or other market participants. The reason we did it was because Robin a brokerage firm. We have lots of financial requirements including sec net capital requirements and clearinghouse deposits. So that's money that we have to deposit burying clearing-houses so some of these requirements fluctuate bid based on volatility in the markets and they can be substantial in the current environment where there's a lot of volatility and a lot of concentrated activity in In these names that have been going viral on social media so we're really in unprecedented times and in order to protect the firm in protect our customers. We had to limit by in these in these stocks in to be absolutely. It's ahead but it sounds to me though that you're suggesting that there was a liquidity problem inside the firm and my question about that then raises all sorts of new questions about whether there's a systemic issue underneath the system and underneath the company unto itself. No there was no liquidity problem and to be clear this was done preemptively so we did this. Proactively in thousands of whether securities remain tradable on the platform customers that held these positions. Were able to seldom in. We're doing what we can to allow a buying 'em to remove these restrictions in the morning but also You might have seen robin hood has been the number one app in the in the store overall so we have seen unprecedented interest due to the fact that finance has been culturally irrelevant in a way that hasn't been before and these stocks are going viral on social media. And i think it's really interesting to juxtapose against some of the other questions that we've been having a before this of course robin For everyday investors from the very beginning with stood for investors opening up access and giving them the ability to trade commission. Free in whatever they want a in. We've gotten a lot of criticism that you know. Maybe there should be more restrictions so it pains us to have had to these restrictions and we're gonna do what we can to enable trading test. How concerned should customers be though about the robustness of the system. If in fact what ultimately had to happen was you had to shut down. Access to buying these securities because of the deposit required. Well to be clear. This was the system working. We have the ability to restrict buying in symbols for a unprecedented market conditions. Such as this in to be clear we didn't shut down the system. We shut down by four of these thirteen stocks for the thirteen securities but customers that position could still sell and customers still could buy and sell the thousands of other securities on the robin hood platform. But when you look at the precipitous fall for example of game stop. Do you think that robinhood bears any responsibility for that. I can't comment on price. Action of of securities and probably would be inappropriate for me to do that in also. I should know rodman wasn't the only firm to restrain buying other. Brokerages have been restricting the buying and trading of these types of securities all week. And even today. Of course we get the lion's share of the attention since we've been the cognitive referring for retail investing in america but other other people are dealing with these challenges as well
Lawmakers call for regulation after Robinhood halts trading
"The trading apple robin hood restricted trading on game stop. Amc nokia blackberry and a few other ninety s favorite brands that have been targeted for boosting by the reddit forum. Wall street bets. It is allowing users to buy limited quantities again today other brokers ltd traits as well but at least one retail investor sued robin hood claiming the company manipulated the market to protect the hedge funds. Who have lost a lot of money. Placing short bets on game. Stop over the past several months. Those funds of course are able to keep trading where and whenever they like of democratic lawmakers are also calling for regulation including congressman roque connor who present silicon valley the biggest challenge in my view as you listed with technology and more to do with the financial regulations. I mean the fact that we have hedge funds that can go short stock and then go on. Television and tell people to sell is appalling. We need regulations on that and a financial transaction tax now. What technology did is it gave ordinary people the ability to stand up because we don't have the regulations they said. Well we're going to do something to beat the hedge funds and it did give individuals the opportunity to do that but we really need is a regulatory framework provin has restricted trading on certain stocks for certain traders and that does seem to upset the narrative that this app has come along and decentralized and democratized trading for all exactly i mean that was the hope but then went when you first see the retail traders winning which is such a rarity the next day they come out and they say that they're going to stop trading for ordering individuals but hedge funds can still trade off hours that's inexcusable and that's why i've called a along with representative ocasio cortez and several others for a hearing in the financial services committee to investigate. Why robin hood made that decision. Whether they had any institutional investors influence that decision so there should be rules about what can trigger site like robin hood. Inapt like robin hood to stop trading. It shouldn't just be up their discretion and it should apply equally to everyone. There's no question. Though that absent regulation we have seen pretty profound changes in the financial industry because of intech and because of an app like robin hood coming along and forcing everybody else to make trading free and easy this is disruption right. This is the kind of disruption that your district has produced over and over. Yes and i think to the extent that there's disruption that is healthy is to be applauded. I'm glad that ordinary people actually got to stand up to hedge. Fund shorting but technology is not sufficient without proper regulations tended. Big miss here is what hedge funds are doing on a daily basis that gives them comparative advantage and these apps apparently are not being fair. I mean they're not giving equal access and that's the role for regulation. You have written that. We need to have a system that incentivizes crowdsourcing for making things and building things as opposed to driving up stocks. That aren't actually worth hundreds of dollars. What are your plans to do that. One of the things. I've been looking at is that the treasury department has a institution called federal financing bank. They ought to be lending and having debt in building. Factories across this country have electric vehicle. Factories have a new auto factories have solar plants. Were you lend hundreds of millions of dollars in conjunction with the private sector to re industrialize. America that would be productive investment. And we've seen that. When the government partners with the private sector in that kind of investment it actually initiates incentivize private investment and crowdsourcing. I think we've had an over financial ization of our economy and we need to think about how we're going to have productive capacity of leads to good jobs. I will say though a lot of the people who are on this wall street beth's forum who are participating in this movement i guess are saying this is crowdsourcing. That actually gets us paid in a way that we can't in our economy because wages are stagnant. Or we've lost our jobs or they're just you know that certainly not everybody but is there value in crowdsourcing that makes up for gaps in the american economy. There's definitely value that These folks have made money and my concern is that that shouldn't be the alternative to structural economic reform higher minimum wage. Actually good paying jobs. I mean it would be sad to me if this is the only way. They're working class middle class. Americans can make money. So i support on the side of the ready traders in this dispute but i think that we need regulations for their fairness. We need to make sure that they're not being taken advantage of in the future. A lot of people you know the more people trade. The economic studies show that they actually lose money if you trade a lot and so we need to have regulations on that and we have to have structural reform in the economy so people have options for getting good jobs and don't feel this is the only way they can make ends meet congressman. Ro khanna represents california's seventeenth district robinhood denied that any hedge funds pressured it to limit
California reveals data used to lift stay-at-home order
"To ditch the regional stay at home order came as a surprise for many officials said that data and science led to the change yesterday back to a tear based system, but some were still confused as to what that exactly meant. Today, California's Health and Human Services secretary, Dr Mark Galle gave some more clarity on the move. He says it all comes down to ICU projections. We know today's Cases become hospital cases in about two weeks. I see you cases 3 to 4 weeks later. So if we want to really determine what the impact is on where we're gonna be in the hospitals, we have to look about four weeks out. Charlie says the state used to set of formulas for the original restrictions. So they basically calculated how many new cases there are. Many of those people are expected to be in the hospital, and I see you and how many ICU beds there are in total. Today, the state reporting roughly 18,000 new covert 19 patients in the hospital, not new currently and more than 4300 of those are in the ICU. Well as the state remains in the grip of the covert pandemic. Not everyone is celebrating Governor Newsom's decision to end stay at home orders. A lot of people think that the pandemic is over and we will be getting back to normal. It's not anywhere near normal as any triumphal Cortez is the president of the California Nurses Association.

Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud claims
"Lead story. Today comes from the new york times and they say quote. The justice department's top leaders listened in stunned silence this month. One of their peers. They were told had devised a plan. Along with trump to oust. Jeffrey rosen as acting attorney. General and we'll the department's power to force georgia state. Lawmakers to overturn the presidential election results. This unassuming lawyer. Who worked on the plans names. Jeffrey clarke had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results to bolster trump's continuing legal battles and the pressure on georgia politicians. Because mr jeffrey rosen had refused the president's entreaties to carry out those plans mr trump was about to decide whether to fire. Mr rosen and replace him with mr kark danial remember. We were talking about like. who's this. Jeffrey rosen person. And i was like well his career official. I don't think he's going to go along with the bullshit. Turns out we were right. He did not go along with the bullshit. The department officials convened on a conference. Call then ask each other. what would you do. If mr rosen was dismissed and the answer was unanimous. they would all resign in protest They're informed packed. Ultimately persuaded trump. To keep rosen in place calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of the justice department would eclipse any attention on his baseless accusations. Voter fraud so he didn't he didn't do it for the right reasons. He said If you everyone resigned and mass it would take. He wouldn't say and mass if everyone was designed all at once. Take away attention from my lies. And so he didn't and trump's decision came only after rosen and clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre white house meeting to officials compared with an episode of the apprentice albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis. This should be looked at and light of the impeachment article that will be sent to the senate as majority leader. Chuck schumer has agreed to delay the impeachment trial until february eighth. Some people think that this shows weakness. I do not. I think this was a calculated political shrewd. Move by chuck schumer. I think it allows more evidence to come out about the insurrection which will make it more difficult for republicans to acquit. And i wanna be clear here not because they have morals but because voters do and voters will be holding them responsible It's going to be more morally difficult for them to acquit. And a lot of people say well. We had the momentum. Right after the insurrection to get this vote to acquit and then additional vote to prevent it from running for office again. But that's not the case they wouldn't have had seventeen republicans and they still don't today but as we start to learn more we may be able to push more republicans over the edge and again not because they have morals but because the people who vote them into office do and some of that evidence came to light this weekend including the arrest of a man who had plans to assassinate alexandria. Ocasio cortez self-styled militia members from virginia ohio and states also made plans to storm the capital days in advance and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on both sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers and that's according to court documents filed tuesday while authorities have charged more than one hundred individuals in the riott details in the new allegations against three. Us military veterans offer a very disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before during and after the attack statements that indicate a degree of preparation determination to rush deep into the halls and tons of congress to make citizens arrests of elected officials and they even mentioned sealed sealing off the tunnels and and putting gas in them. Us authorities charged the apparent leader of the oath keepers That's an extremist group. Thomas caldwell sixty six of virginia. They're all from virginia in the attack. Alleging that the navy veteran helped organize a ring of dozens who coordinated their movements as they quote stormed the castle to disrupt the confirmation of biden's electoral college victory. Despite this current department of justice officials and federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should declined to charge some of the individuals who stormed the capital so politically loaded proposition. But one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases cases could swamp the local courthouse. You know tough shit. Internal discussions are in the early stages. No decisions have been reached whether to forego charging some of these folks and that's according to multiple people familiar with the discussions and we also learned that trump's campaign paid more than two point seven million dollars over two years to individuals and firms that organized the january sixth rally that led to the riot And that's according to the center for responsive politics and these payments which span trump's reelection campaign. Show an ongoing financial relationship between rally organizers and trump's political operation they were all made through november twenty third the most recent date covered by the federal election commission filings. Which is before the rally was publicly announced. I'm sure we'll see more in the next. Fcc filing so. That's where we are.

"I think that I mean I. I don't know about. I always get like so a i. Think conversations about compromise and pragmatism to be very strange because People of Color. I think sometimes they have often been the most pragmatic people in this country because we have to make decisions based on survival and working class people you know. It's was this the the matchup that I wanted in the November ballot that I wanted no but I know that there's a difference between our communities at least having a fighting chance and having chance you know I think communities often have to make decisions of harm reduction and not like benefit optimization so joe by Joe Biden Donald. Trump is a harm reduction contest for you. It's not the ideal contest. Depending on on what happens in terms of the policies that get adopted. And that's why I'm pushing right now because you don't want to have a harm reduction election. That's not good for Democrats but the difference between a harm reduction election and not in an election policy in a plan for people's futures and that has yet to be determined. I wonder if you think this pandemic might have an impact on the politics of this country heading into November. I mean the repercussions of it have been enormous and I wonder if in the time between now and then which is a meaningful number of months the fragility of our social fabric will become even more clear to people and Americans might embrace some of the policies that you're fighting for and that a moderate candidate like Joe Biden who's talking about returning to normal might normally be wary of the things that sanders was all about. Oh yeah well we're already. We're already seeing that. As national support for Medicare for all has increased since this pandemic has started governments at its best is an instrument of the public and the public's means of taking care of itself and this pandemic has just exposed us at the fragility of our system. I think I already know I already hear people telling me can't believe I didn't see this before. I cannot believe I didn't see this before and I'm just thankful that people are seeing it now within do you think this moment represents an opportunity for the progressive moment. I know it's weird to think of. Yeah a tragedy as an opportunity but and capture that moment without a figure like sanders at the top. Well I think I'm speaking as an organizer. Not as congressman the thing about the progressive movement is that electoral politics is just one part of it. It's not hall of it. Certainly. The Progressive Movement survived after twenty sixteen and bringing was not running for a few years and if anything that movement strengthened it elected several members to Congress and so I think that it improves. It improves on a lot of electoral. Politics has to do for better for worse but the candidate. We're not just voting based on these amorphous. Figures of that do not have identities where we're voting on people and personalities as well are you saying that sanders was in the end a flawed candidate. I think I think ultimately it's just about acknowledging the reality. The reality was that we didn't win so I guess flawed in the sense that he did not get nomination but you know I think in the function of every candidate. Every human being is flawed. We are all flight. There's no such thing as a flawless candidate. Joe Biden is flawed. I'm flon Bernie. Sanders is flawed. Is What makes novels grades. There will be no Greece so you know i. of course everyone else..

"Today her mentor and Political Inspiration has dropped out of the presidential race and her congressional district has been described as the epicenter of the epicenter of the Corona virus a conversation with congresswoman Alexandria or Cossio Cortez of New York plus a preview of a new audio series. From The Times it's Friday April Seventeenth ooh congresswoman. Hello Michael. Hey It's Michael Barbaro how are you? I'm well how are you? Thank you so much for for making time for and for joining this hang out in an interview Are you at home? And I'm at home right now. Well for those who congresswoman no you primarily as a national figure and perhaps less less so by the district represented in New York. I wonder if you can start by describing this moment in your district who your constituents are and how this pandemic is impacting them. Appreciate that question because who? My constituents are largely informs my politics and what we advocate for in terms of national agenda. My community is overwhelmingly working class. It is about half immigrants. It is about seventy five percent people of color were one of the most diverse communities in the world not just in the United States in Jackson Heights alone over. Two hundred languages are spoken. And how is the pandemic impacting? Those constituents in your district out of the top ten. Zip Codes in the United States that are impacted by covert casualties. The top five are in my district. The top yeah the top three being all in our district well in New York City about sixty five percents of all frontline workers are people of Color so the folks who are stocking our grocery stores the folks who are acting as our home health aides that are visiting our elderly parents and the disabled the folks who are working in our hospitals they are the people who are disproportionately impacted. Are you saying that the reason they are getting so sick your constituents because they're disproportionately being asked to go into work in the midst of us? Oh absolutely because this pandemic is not happening in a vacuum it's happening in a social and economic context. And you know there are people that are saying okay. We're going to transition to working from home. But working from home is an enormous privilege and to be able to do your job remotely it cleaves along class lines and the people who need to make the sacrifice. Those are frontline workers. Those frontline workers are often underpaid. They have hourly John's they don't have health insurance or if they do they are underinsured. It's not just about who gets it but it's about who suffers from it the most and what they're telling me is that you know they`re. They're very proud of the work that they do the very proud of the role that they play because they are essential workers but what they don't feel is supported and a lot of the feel like they're just being sent in for slaughter because they are asked to do work without the proper protections. They're saying you're sending us into war without weapons. I was in line at the drugstore a couple days ago and there was this woman behind me and she had A. I believe a kidney condition and she needed to take her medicine golden bathroom and she was out in public in all the stores were closed in the line to the drugstore was so long they would not let her in because there were so many other people that needed medical attention. And we're trying to say. Hey I I have XYZ and you to get my medicine now. Needed confirmed wine. And so this is kind of what we're experiencing while all this is going on we have ice raids that are happening where there's are knocking on people's doors while other people are knocking on the door it's delivered from food pantries so which knocked you answer right right. Ice Doesn't always present themselves as clearly marked as they should and so sometimes these officers are plain clothes. And you know when you have a stranger knocking on your door. I've I've been doing the deliveries myself as well and knock on people's doors and people were extremely scared about who I was and everyone's wearing a face mask so it's it's hard to tell at first you know it's it's extraordinary amount of uncertainty and by the way these are the people who are delivering food. These are the people who are delivering your food to Your Door. Who Don't have healthcare don't have access to testing and are extremely vulnerable so given everything you just described. I WanNa talk about your response to the government's really large stimulus bill. A bill designed to provide relief to struggling workers in particular in this moment. Therefore a Bill. I imagine would benefit a fair number of your constituents perhaps more than in most districts you stood up on the floor of the House and you call that bill shameful and my understanding is that you withheld your support for it so help me understand that. Yeah because You know it wasn't designed to help working people. This bill was not designed to help everyday families. It was designed to engineer one of the largest corporate bailouts and give aways in modern American history and they used the desperation of working families in order to get that done. And so you know when it comes to my district. My district is half imigrants..

"House she would not have a Senate part you're on the green new deal which is absolutely mandatory for any realistic legislative enterprise but like an old pro at legislating the freshman congressman found owner in Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts who has pushed the green new deal onto the democratic agenda in the United States Senate there's no reason to expect leadership like that from a freshman member of the house because we have never seen leadership like that from a freshman member of the House Alexandria 'cause you Cortez is one of the freshman members of the house who have changed changed what is possible in committee hearings by the sharpness and inescapable logic of their questions in the five minutes that they are allowed to ask them cars because he will protest did that yesterday in what became five of the worst minutes of Mark Zuckerberg's very rich life as the CEO of facebook who has gotten through most of the years of his life without ever having to answer difficult questions we'll show you some of that video of what Mark Zuckerberg into yesterday when Alexandra Cortez got her five minutes but we begin tonight with impeachment and as luck of history would have it Alexander Kazu Cortez is one of the members of Congress who is participating in the impeachment investigation as a member of the House Oversight Committee contrary to Republican Congressman Matt Gates is is as he was leading his congressional drunk driving collision with the investigating committees yesterday there are in fact dozens of Republican members of the house who are also allowed to participate in and ask questions in the investigation including in the closed door deposition because a are members of the investigating committees Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is introducing a resolution in the Senate to object to the procedures being used by the House represents as we will consider Lindsey Graham's objections later in this hour one we will be joined by former federal prosecutor Joyce fans and former under secretary of State Wendy Sherman most Republican senator these are supporting Lindsey Graham's resolution objecting to the house procedures but in what could be an ominous sign for Donald trump as of tonight eight eight Republican Senators have chosen not to support Lindsey Graham's resolution including Senator Mitt Romney's under Susan Collins under Lisa Murkowski if just half of those eight senators were to join with Democrats in the Senate and vote against Donald Trump in his impeachment trial then a majority of the Senate would be voting against the president which would be an important note for history even though the president could remain in power because it takes sixty seven votes to convict and remove a president in an impeachment trial in the Senate and joining us now is congresswoman Alexander Causing Cortez who represents the state of New York's fourteen congressional district which covers portions of the Bronx and Queens in New York City cars win thank you very much for joining us tonight on this very important news night and career action to what is happening in the impeachment investigation beginning quickly with very strange car-crash of a scene we saw of mad gates leading a physical attack into the committee to disrupt it it's well first and foremost I remember seeing you know the that C- of men banging outside of of House intelligence thinking that it was quite funny as many of them are my colleagues on House Oversight Committee and have access to those depositions so they were pretending that they weren't able to be in in bees positions like many members of Congress Republican and Democrat alike in order to create a spectacle but the truth of the matter is is it's not that the reason that we're doing that is because they knew exact what was going on inside they know exactly what what this testimony on what these depositions are adding up to and that frankly it is revealing a very disturbed being sequence of events and very likely abuse of power and breaking our oath to the Constitution of the United States. I know you're in ambassador Gordon lunes a closed-door deposition there we had congressman Peter Welch with us the other night and after William Taylor testified in direct Contradiction of Ambassadors Sunland let's listen to what Carson Welch said about the possibilities of perjury charges there let's listen to that is a Gordon Sunland in danger of perjury charges for his testimony to your committee I think he is the evidence is now coming out that in act he was a very active instrument to try to essentially assist Guiliani in the effort to have this road foreign policy so yes I think investigators sunland has some reason to be worried about how his testimony is going to be evaluated when reviewed by potential prosecutors and today investors in Linz criminal defense lawyers relied on the do not recall defense to cover the conflict in his tests Tony with ambassador Taylor's testimony what is your sense of how much of a possible perjury charge danger investor Sunland is in well I think a lot of what we're seeing here does reveal a decent amount of testimony that frankly just isn't lining up this is exactly why in the house resentatives we separate all of our witnesses and to pose them individually and impose in private so that we can get these stories down and see what adds up and it doesn't that is also a major reason why these Republicans are fighting to perhaps make all of this public you know it is known that this is done with the blessed think of the president and perhaps one of the reasons they're fighting for all of this testimony to be public is so that folks could potentially line up their depositions we don't know but with respect to ambassador Sunland well you know the fact that they're relying on this do not recall let's see what comes out I do not think bodes very well for him but once again we still have more depositions left to go and we have to really get all of the facts it has been a very sad week for you and for numbers of of the House and the committee in particular with the loss of a chairman cummings a what was it like for you to be first of all with a seat on his committee and then be welcomed onto that committee biologics Oh it was the complete honor of a lifetime when I first asked to to be assigned the House oversight committee he brought me into his office personally and really wanted to know not just why I wanted to be on this committee but he wanted I know who I was and it was a real testimony to WHO Elisha Cummings was as a leader he cared about serving the most vulnerable Americans about bringing truth to lie about speaking truth to power and unlike the and contrary to the culture of Congress which is oh focused on the power of seniority he as as Speaker Pelosi mentioned today earlier this year said I want all the freshmen on my committee he was has a relentless coach he wasn't inspired mentor and he believed an invested time and each and every one of us and I feel oh profoundly blessed to have spent the last ten months with with our chairman the it seems at this point certain that the house represent going to deliver articles of impeachment at least one to the United States Senate for trial which leaves the senators in the posture of jury there's some of them are actually refraining from comment on the basis of being jurors we've seen this before when the Clinton Senate jury was assembled some of them unlike a court jury where you're not allowed to make any comment they can they can decide ahead of time how they're going to vote some of them announce that on them what is your sense of how the presidential candidates who are going to be jurors is about five of them now from Senator Sanders the candidate even dorest through Elizabeth Warren Cory Booker Amy Klobuchar how they should handle themselves now as the prospect of being potential jurors in the Senate trial becomes more and more serious well first and foremost I think what's important to acknowledge that the president has committed crimes in public and that this is something that we wow this is something that all people know from the from you know from the green of of the White House he he solicited election interference and disgust election interference with respect to China he released public notes of his calls where he solicited and and engaged in using the power of his office to create a politically motivated investigation against a political opponents so this is all allow in public we know that he has committed a crime the question is how many other people are implicated in this the question is how often did he do it did he do it in other circumstances how it does this cat and so with respect to the number of articles I think that it's it's fair to say let's look at what roles in but with respect to you name and and several other instances it's a very open and shut case so I think it's important that we discuss the fact that he house committed impeachable crimes it's just a question of how many and how many people were involved in who knew in addition to your work in the Committee and your investigative committee you're also become active now in the political campaign actively campaigning for Bernie Sanders a endorsing Ed Markey for Senate in Massachusetts an endorsement being a a new candidate attorney scenarios in Texas running for the House in Texas you're spreading your endorsements around the electoral map how much of that it is something that is distracting from your daily work in the house well I put my work in the House front and center but what do believe is that these endorsements are part of the work that we have to do in the house very frequently someone will say Oh we can't pass a green new deal we don't have support for that oh medicare for all this quote unquote fees feasible because we may not have support in certain areas of the house well if we want to change that we need to be changing we need to be changing the map of the house and we'd be protecting those folks who are leading and are taking political risks in order to serve the people of the United States of America and so my work first and foremost informs the other work that I do to organize the electorate but it's it is Morton to acknowledge that in order to pass a transformative agenda for working class Americans we gotta have the numbers and we gotTa have the leadership in place and so we have to play in both if we're really going to change this country and if we're serious about that I wanna take a look at what your five minutes with Mark Zuckerberg was

"Great to have you, sir. Hi. Hi, rush. Listen, I'll be very quick. I was wondering what your thoughts would be on Nancy Pelosi primary Cortes in Omar. He's very vindictive. And. Without being conniving. And I was I looked at your call up there. And I saw that this was going to be a question. I began to think I I have seen somewhere. I can't pinpoint where somebody is already thinking of doing this. In Cortez's district now whether it's happening with or without Pelosi's involvement. I don't know. Let's put it this way. Doing it for sure if you were Pelosi, you you would want Cortez and Ilhan Omar gone. Guaranteed. They're interfering with everything she's trying to whether you agree with it or not and policies and she's used to having control. And that's one of her big things understand. I I do totally understand. Me one Cortez in her crowd are going to be out recruit even more people like her to run another district. So this is going to be. And interesting tug of war and the one thing about Cortez heart. They are not afraid of Pelosi. She may as well be a grandmother whose time has come to sit in the kitchen and baked cookies far as they're concerned. The number one.

"Love you. And you win. When your son says, look, you won bullies don't win because we're going to go on there. Winning. That's a great mom, right? There isn't it? I mean, what a what a good mom baby baby. Let me teach you about bullies. We're gonna go in there. And and son little said, we're gonna go impeach that mother. You know, what classy Democratic Party right there? Five three five nine seven three to five three five nine seven three two. All right now, let's seriously deal with this car idea because I do think this is an important thing that should be brought up. This car idea that they are talking about is one where. Cortez wants all of your cars. That are have gasoline engines for you to no longer be able to to be able to use them. They we would actually be banning them where those cars would not would you? I mean, you would have to you would be regulated forced by the government to own an electric car. How many of you think the government should force you to decide what type of car you can buy? There's another part about this too is what if you have a work truck. It would be what if you are driving significant distances every day. What if you're a deliveryman what if you are a someone that drives around town with hospice care, and you can't just put what if your emergency responder? Are you gonna carve out for them because he's a real questions that should be asked? Like are you going to carve out for them? So they can still have a gas engine. What if you are hauling heavy equipment, and you're gonna wear they don't even make f two f three f four fifty type cars with batteries. What if you walk cattle? What if you call? Hey, what if you hall still piping if you air conditioner units in those situations, and I mean, seriously, how are you going to deal with that? Are you going to force them to buy something that might cost three or four times what they're currently spending? Where do you where do you draw this where do you draw the line on this because she said that we need all of these off the road, I'm assuming that would also mean eighteen wheelers. So how many eighteen wheel drivers are driving? You know, regionally or nationally coast to coast driving. How many of those guys can do it with a with batteries? Anybody want to answer that question that the believes in this crap? And then I I mean, I'm a I'm a guy that I work hard have multiple jobs. Okay. I could afford if I was mandated. By a electric car. There are a lot of Democrats.

"What we got? Instead was just unregulated neoliberal capitalism with almost no checks on it. How does someone like Alexandria ocasio Cortez compare as a leader in that kind of moment to someone like Bernie Sanders? Would you say, okay? So Cortez was a volunteer on his campaign. A lot of platform is very derivative of Sanders. It's just that the appeal to different constituencies, and I think that's in some ways, you know, it's like the old guard working with the new guards thing it shows that there's a willingness of generational transfer of power that we haven't really seen. I think the median age right now in congress is like sixty sixty five the media. That's insane. Insane right there twenty years older than the average American is is our congress. And when you think about things like global warming like it just is it's crazy to think that the people who have power over those issues are people who will not be around to reap the results. Exactly. But even I think more interesting is that they don't necessarily understand this this sort of gig economy. So many millennials are part of scrambling here. You know, a couple of jobs here driving Uber or lift air being being out your flat. When you go away on the weekend. I mean young people are extremely precarious. And I think that at some point there has to be a transfer of power like there is going to be a moment when the millennials are going to be ascendant in twenty nineteen I believe so just next year millennials will outnumber baby boomers and yet when we look at the composition of the Senate. I think there's one Senator in his thirties. It does seem like even as there are. A lot of people who really have a resistance to the idea of socialism and probably she's going to have a hard time winning over. It does feel like she perhaps represents this way of almost repackaging socialism are presenting it in a way that people find more appealing or more accessible than they might have otherwise. Yes. So here's where I think her position is probably the most valuable to us in thinking about like trying to have what she calls a moral ethical economy in the United States. It turns out that once you strip away the partisanship. If you just talk about issues like healthcare or tuition free public colleges or trade schools or housing is a human right? The government shouldn't have bailed out Wall Street while letting the banks foreclose on main street homes turns out that Americans are a lot more in agreement about what needs to be done in the future. So the introduction of the word socialism. I think in a philosophical sense, not necessarily an economic or political sense. But NFL Asaf ical sense allows us to have a conversation about. What is important to us to live in a society where we have rich robust social connections or where we're all like, really rich but living alone in our apartments in front of our computer with no, friends and lovers. Do you think she's likely to succeed in building a broader movement? Oh, hi. I don't know. I mean, I think in my in my more optimistic moments. I mean, obviously, she's got Senator Sanders. She's got you know, some institutional support. She's got a broad based movement on the other hand, she's going to get to Washington and have to deal with that machine. Yeah. And you know, and then there are certainly a lot of people in this country for whom socialism is a very threatening idea. And I think she's going to face a lot of personal ad hominem attacks a lot of vitriol. And so in my more pessimistic moments like, I'm afraid you know, that that she won't manage she's twenty nine. There's a lot of pressure on somebody that age. So I think because I'm an academic, and because I studied history, and because I study the realities of socialism, I know that. You know, the bad things happen to good things can happen that the bad things going. So I'm it's hard for me. It's hard for me to make that leap of just total idealism, which I would love to be able to do. But you know, I'm I'm a little bit. I'm Jen accent? I'm a little jaded. Mystery bad things happen to..

"In many respects, Alexandria or Costco. Cortez is being more intellectually honest. Numerous conservatives are. Because there's a lot of people calling themselves can serve as a day they're wanting to do with the existential questions answered by the scriptures, they dislike cheaper stuff and lower taxes. But she at least understands she may not understand what the same hill, the situations between Palestine and Israel. You know what, though neither does ninety flippant percent of the people that have worked at the last four damn state departments. So she's pretty good company there. She could a for Jim Baker or John Kerry for that matter because they both pretty much sound the same. The two state solution came from Bush, not from Obama. But on this front, she's cash money, homey. She has rightfully looked at the world and said, something is wrong with it. It needs to be fixed. And see understand to the likes of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez if indeed. That fix cannot come from within us. By us progressing to be better than we currently are. Must mean that they're either is no fix, which is hopeless. Nihilism or the fixed comes from outside of us which requires a divine providential accountability. In all be damned. If that's the answer. So this is a religious quest. This is a vision quest. The fix must for what's wrong with us must be able to come for within us and it doesn't matter how many failed government programs. It doesn't matter how many facts. It doesn't matter how many historical failures you can cite. The answers you're getting about socialism and communist. Now. From this coming from Erin generation are the answers, our generation in our parents generation the gen Xers and the baby boomer's on the left gave when it came to the welfare state. Well, the food stamp program will work. If we link it to the, we put it with the add program. We change a few things. Health care for all will work. If we say abracadabra..
