At the end of his trip to the Middle East, President Biden spoke at a summit of gulf leaders, as well as rulers from Iraq, Egypt and Jordan. Let me stay clearly. That the United States is going to remain an active, engaged partner in the Middle East. And he said he's clear eyed about challenges in the region. We will not walk away. And leave a vacuum to be filled by China, Russia or Iran will seek to build on this moment with active principle, American leadership. During the summit, the president outlined the principles of his strategy for the Middle East, focusing on regional cooperation to stand up to threats. I'm Shelley Adler. Meanwhile, the president is still facing backlash for that fist bump with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. The president going to the kingdom to discuss energy and human rights violations, but the gesture is now being described as shameful political White House and Washington Post reporter Daniel lipman saying, critics should recognize a complicated diplomatic relationship between those two nations.

"IBW local 26, a trusted electrical industry partner for over 130 years. Hey, good afternoon. Thanks so much for being with us. I'm Shayna stulen. Mike is our producer, the top stories we're following for you today. President Biden on his way home now from his first presidential trip to the Middle East. He stopped in Israel and also met with the leaders of several Arab states in Saudi Arabia, says the U.S. isn't walking away from that region anytime soon. Let me stay clearly that the United States is going to remain and active engaged partner in the Middle East. There's a world grows more competitive in the challenges we face more complex. There's only becoming clear to me that how close the interwoven America is interest are with the successes in the Middle East. Okay, let's talk about it with Politico's White House and Washington reporter Daniel lipman. Hey Daniel, good to talk to you again. Okay, so this is his first presidential trip to the Middle East, obviously he's been there before. Anytime a president heads over there gets a lot of attention. So how did Biden do? So conventionally, he did pretty well. There weren't any major gaffes, but he took a major PR hit because he fist bumped with MBS, Mohammed bin Salman, who is the leader of sad Arabia, who ordered the killing of the journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, and Biden had promised to make him a pariah and to not deal with Saudi Arabia personally and given his fist bump and almost showed he was being chummy with him. And a lot of people were saying, why are you sacrificing human rights for the short term interests of pumping a few thousand more or a few million more gallons of oil? Okay, but I mean, obviously understandable that people are upset about MBS and his connection to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, obviously. But if we're looking at this from real politic point of view, the Saudis have the U.S. over a barrel quite literally, we rely on their oil in large part. So what did critics expect the president to do? I guess critics sometimes just don't live in a perfect world. And we can't really choose the leaders of other countries. And when we do, it turns out often disastrously. Look at the Iraq War. And so I think people who are more in terms of human rights say versus just the realism that is taught in international relations. They were mad about the trip. But we didn't see a ton of concrete results from Saudi Arabia on this trip. And so even if you're looking at it from a lens of getting stuff for Americans, they didn't announce any increase in pumping oil. And so it seems like they want to see how it plays out for the next few months. And then maybe in the fall, they will say, okay, we'll put some more money, put some more oil in the market. But Biden did not get to say, hey, I came to shadow area, and this is what I secured. All right, so he gave away a fist bump and didn't get any sort of concrete agreements. All right, Daniel, we're going to have to leave it there. Thanks so much for joining us on the Saturday. I really appreciate it. Thanks for having me. Now to Ukraine, Russian forces are continuing their attacks on cities and towns across the country. Ukrainian officials say 17 more civilians have been killed, Russia says it's quote intensifying the actions of units in all operational areas. And back to our area, two people are dead after a burglary in Alexandria. It happened around 7 this morning near the assemble apartments on century drive, one victim was found dead on the scene another died at the hospital. Police chief Hayes says the scene is still under investigation. We have like three different crime scenes. That's why we have so many units out here. We had the burglaries and one location, possibly brothers and another location, and then the shots fired

"Presented by meta. Good morning, playbook. It's Friday. Today's show, the U.S. ICA reconciliation dance continues in the Senate. It's your political playbook daily briefing. Before we get into what's happening in Washington today, some sad news out of Japan. Former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe was fatally shot during a campaign speech on Friday from The Associated Press, quote Abe was shot from behind minutes after he started his speech Friday in Yara in western Japan. He was airlifted to a hospital for emergency treatment, but was not breathing, and his heart had stopped. He was pronounced dead later at the hospital, the 67 year old Abe was Japan's longest serving leader before stepping down for health reasons in 2020. From NHK quote, sources with the investigation tell NHK a gun seized at the scene appeared to be handmade, Chuck Schumer made a couple of new moves in his effort to advance two pieces of legislation tangled in political knots. Recall that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell recently tweeted, quote, there will be no bipartisan U.S. ICA, as long as Democrats are pursuing a partisan reconciliation bill. U.S. ICA, the United States innovation and competition act is the industrial policy legislation that would shower the semiconductor industry with $52 billion of incentives to ramp up chip making in America. China hawks like the bill because it makes the U.S. less reliant on Chinese imports. The Biden administration hails it as a policy that will strengthen the supply chain, boost domestic manufacturing and quote help us out compete China. The new reconciliation bill being negotiated by Schumer and senator Joe Manchin, who you might recall, tanked the lost reconciliation bill back in December, has been inching along. Politico's Burgess Everett and Marianne Levine report, quote, roughly speaking, Manchin and Schumer are working toward legislation that provides $1 trillion in new revenues, half of which would go towards deficit reduction and half of which would go toward energy and health spending. Such a deal is hypothetical at the moment, the tax and energy pieces remain in major flux. This week, the portion of the bill dealing with prescription drug pricing was submitted to the parliamentarian for review, though the two parties haven't yet made their presentations before her. The Democrats had to choose between the U.S. ICA and a reconciliation bill, most of them would rather have the reconciliation bill, so it's unclear how much McConnell's threat matters, but Schumer is doing two new things to put pressure on the minority leader and his GOP colleagues. One, he's amping up the national security case for U.S. ICA. According to a spokesman, Schumer has, quote, requested an all senators classified briefing from the administration on the global innovation and technology race and U.S. ICA. The briefing is scheduled for next Wednesday. And two, he's highlighting a new popular piece of reconciliation. Schumer has crafted a proposal for the reconciliation package that would extend the solvency of Medicare through 2031 by taxing very high earners. Schumer is ready to submit the Medicare proposal to the parliamentarian, likely on Monday. Next week, we'll be busy on both fronts, and these two shimmer moves are aimed at McConnell's threat linking the two bills for what it's worth. We remember back when McConnell thought linkage was bad because it would quote hold a bipartisan bill hostage over a separate and partisan process. One Senate Democrat argued to play the last night, quote McConnell is in a tough spot, blocking tough on China Bill because he doesn't want to extend Medicare and lower prescription drug prices. Then again, this could be wishful thinking. One thing McConnell has learned over the years is that when you're in the minority, there's little price to pay for obstruction. Back on Wednesday night, D.C. protesters targeting the conservative Supreme Court Justices who signed onto the Dobbs decision of returning the constitutional right to abortion got a tip that justice Brett Kavanaugh was dining and Morton's downtown D.C. location. Protesters soon showed up out front called the manager to tell him to kick Kavanaugh out and later tweeted that the justice was forced to exit through the rear of the restaurant. But because Daniel lipman looked into the incident for us and confirmed that account, while the court has no official comment on Kavanaugh's behalf, and the person familiar with the situation said, he did not hear or receive a protesters. Morton's was outraged about the incident, a representative for the James steakhouse, sent lipman the statement, quote, honorable Supreme Court Justice, Kavanaugh, and all of our other patrons at the restaurant were unduly harassed by an oily protesters while eating dinner at our Morton's restaurant. Politics, regardless of your cider views, should not trample the freedom at play of the right to congregate and eat dinner. There was a time and a place for everything. Disturbing the dinner of all of our customers was an act of selfishness and void of decency. Here's what's up in Washington today starting with The White House at 1130 a.m. eastern. Biden will deliver remarks on protecting access to reproductive healthcare services with vice president Kamala Harris in HHS secretary Javier becerra, also in attendance. Seung min Kim and Zeke Miller from The Associated Press scoop the details late Thursday night, quote the actions he was expected to outline are intended to try to mitigate some potential penalties women seeking abortion may face after the ruling, but are limited in their ability to safeguard access to abortion nationwide. Biden is expected to formalize instructions to the departments of justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access federally approved abortion medication or to travel across state lines to access clinical abortion services. At one 55, Biden will depart The White House to head to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, where he'll deliver remarks at three 40 p.m.. Afterward, he'll return to The White House and head to Rehoboth beach Delaware. Here's what's on the fight's president's calendar today at 4 p.m. eastern, vice president Kamala Harris will convene state legislative leaders from Indiana, Florida, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Montana to discuss reproductive rights. Prosthetic, queen Jean Pierre will prove a noon. The Senate and the House are out today. One more thing to watch on the calendar today, the June jobs report will be released at 8 30 a.m., along with next Wednesday's June CPI report, this morning's data will help inform the fed when it meets on July 26th and 27th to decide how much more to hike interest rates. The fed is debating between a .5 or .75 percentage .8, a good report today. Let's say above 250,000 jobs created in June means the larger interest rate is more likely as the fed tries to cool down the economy.

"TOP news 7 12 the Biden administration is losing a lot of its black staffers at least 21 people of color have left The White House since late last year or they'll be taking off soon Political reports black staff members who are still on the job say they're not getting a lot of help from the boss and there's not much of a chance to move up Joining us live Politico White House and Washington reporter Daniel Lippman Welcome to Daniel Thanks for having me guys So first question why are so many black staffers leaving the Biden administration So obviously when anyone leaves a job or starts a job there's varying reasons for why And so you know it's kind of just been a tale of two worlds in terms of I've talked to three current black White House officials and they said that they weren't getting enough support from their colleagues from mentor mentorship opportunities opportunities for advancement And they felt like they were getting short shrift and one of them said that they even felt invisible in the workplace if you are not able to progress to be a leader in The White House which is draws the most talented people from around the country Daniel it's not lost on you or anybody else who follows this closely Joe Biden would not be in The White House if not for black folks Is there an incongruency there between his support for the black cause overall and the treatment of employees within The White House walls I think that you know he can't force every junior staffer to stay in The White House He's trying to get build back better past And so he may not be he's not signing off and internal promotions or making sure that enough black staffers get them and I think that there is a sense from the staffers I talked to that they really have to live up to the promises that there was not Iowa and New Hampshire that got Biden elected in the democratic primary It was the black voters of South Carolina And they want people to remember that internally you know I should say that I did talk to a number of other current and former black officials and they described very positive experiences in The White House And so with any workplace there's going to be people who like it they dislike it but the sheer numbers of people who are leaving who are black I think says an important story And one more question we only have about 30 seconds left How much of this plays in two conflict between President Biden's team that some analysts refer to as his comfort food people he's known for a long time And vice president Kamala Harris team Well Harris team has since it started been more diverse in terms of more black people on staff And the inner circle of surrounding Biden is largely white and kind of old 70 year old types And so I think there's a I don't think this is a point of contention And the Biden administration points to historic people like the first black female president the first black female press secretary So they still have lots of points on the board in terms of making sure that this is the most diverse White House and administration ever That update is much appreciated that's Daniel lipman live on WTO with political Sports at 15 and 45 powered by Red River technology decisions aren't black and white Think red Here's rob wood fork All right the nationals and mets underway up in New York the nets going for payback for last night's 13 5 beat down We have no score top of the first inning Juan Soto up to bats Patrick Corbin with one more outs will be on the mound in search of his first win streak of the season Bad news on the injury front Joe Ross set to undergo Tommy John surgery for the second time in 5 years ending his 2022 season and perhaps his tenure in Washington as this is the final year of his contract on a more positive note Steven Strasburg will make his first minor league re app start with triple-A Rochester Friday and perhaps a couple of weeks away now from returning to a net starting rotation that is in dire need of him The Orioles opening in 8 game home stand against the Seattle Mariners no score in the first in a French Open tennis huge quarterfinal match between men's top seed Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal Rafa took two of the first three sets they're tied up now in the fourth set Alexander zverev advanced to the semis with a four set victory in the women's draw Koko Goff a winner over fellow American Sloane Stephens and strait set so she's on to this semis and the mystics in fever Underway in Indiana and not a good start for the sticks it was an 11 two run for the fever to start the game but the stick starting to get back in this one in 1711 now in the first quarter Rob.

"The House committee investigating the January 6th capitol insurrection issuing subpoenas this week to 5 more people including former president Trump's ally Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones the subpoenas include demands for documents and testimony from stone and Jones as well as three people accused of organizing and promoting the two rallies that preceded the deadly attack The committee has already interviewed more than a 150 people across government social media and law enforcement including sub former Trump aides who have said to be cooperative This morning Daniel lipman who covers The White House in Washington for Politico on what the subpoenas mean There's been telling me that the January 6th minute really wants to try to get to the bottom of what happened in terms of planning of January 6th and also how it unfolded and the connections between the outside groups and The White House and the Trump campaign And I think that they don't feel like they're getting the answers from these folks and to provide a complete accounting of what happened they felt like they had to take this extreme and drastic step As you look at the language of some of the subpoenas how close to Donald Trump himself are we getting in terms of the language of planning in terms of who knew what and how early on they knew We'll be able to find out how close they want to get to Trump by looking at future subpoenas They thought that the Steve Bannon arrest by the Department of Justice earlier in the last week or two that that would encourage people to cooperate But these people often welcome the scrutiny of the government And they want the government to subpoena them or to arrest them because they want to be viewed as martyrs They want to be heroes to the right so they can increase their fundraising and get more notoriety So there is an alternative argument to be made that while it's all good to get this information that this only makes them mentioned more folk heroes on the right Daniel we can say that about Steve Bannon We can say the same thing about Roger Stone but Alex Jones just finished with the sandy hook trial Legal bills for him have to be mounting up Yeah I would not want to be in charge of his bank account because everywhere he turns He's getting hit And so I think this is a guy who Trump has kind of dallied around danced around And a lot of those Trump voters they like InfoWars that they embrace some of these conspiracy theories And Trump himself he doesn't like to just too much because he doesn't want to anger his voters and he likes this whole mix of conspiracy theories because then he can put his own theories like Joe Biden's not the real president Or this election was stolen And so if conspiracy theories are accepted more cross the conservative spectrum fueled by Jones and that helps a fertile ground for Trump when he needs it for his own causes It sounded like from your earlier answers and based on your reporting of course that you don't believe the January 6 committee is coming along as nicely as maybe its leaders had hoped Yeah I think it's going to be a tough road for them because they're not getting the cooperation that they need And the midterms elections are.

"Ryan Gorman. Lots of breaking news this evening, Congress is set to resume their activities. In the Capitol building, counting the electoral college votes, and it sounds like the objections. We were expecting quite a few objections to Joe Biden's electoral college victory. It sounds like there won't be as many now after what has unfolded at our nation's Capitol throughout the day today, also The president's Twitter accounts has been locked for 12 hours. Twitter safety put out these tweets about 15 minutes ago, saying as a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violence situation in Washington, D C. We have required the removal of three Real Donald Trump tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our civic integrity policy. This means that the accounts of real Donald Trump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these tweets. If the tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked future violations of the Twitter rules, including our civic integrity or violent threats, policies. Will result in permanent suspension of the real Donald Trump account that follows Facebook and YouTube taking down the video that the president put out earlier today, joining me now on the hotline to unpack. Some of this. I have reporter for politico who is ah White House in Washington reporter Daniel Lippman joins me, Daniel really great to have you on and to get your insight into what has been a infamous day in American history. Where do you want to start? What? What is the headline that comes out of today? The headline is This is what you get when a president for the last two months has been broadcasting in every media platform, including his Twitter account that where you're talking about Unsubstantiated and false allegations of voter fraud that are just not accurate, and they've led millions of his supporters, including the tens of thousands that shut up, Um In Washington today to believe that this election was stolen from them. When there is just no evidence that there was widespread fraud that would have changed the results. So You know that This is kind of this is shocking, but it's also not surprising because Um, this, you know they're always Out liars and extremists in crowds that want toe. I kind of breach the security and they wanted to make a stand, and they did. Someone who covers the White House and Washington and knows the capital real well. Were you surprised that these individuals were able to get into the Capitol building and do some of the things that we have seen them do throughout the day? Yeah, I was pretty shocked because my colleague and I, we drove around the hill yesterday, and there's lots of little metal barriers. Barricades there were set up, but there wasn't tons of security. Um, And so they definitely underestimated how much they would have needed for today on so I think there's going to be an investigation. It's not on the scale of Um, when Steve Scalise was shot on, Drew's uncertain whether he would survive because the the protesters who entered the Capitol building, um they weren't Uh, Violent against members or police. Except for that one woman who we don't know the cause of who died? Who? We don't know what happened to her? Um, but they definitely scared everyone on on the hill and There's gonna be a big revamp to make sure that this doesn't happen again. I'm sure security would be tightened for the future. I'm joined by Politico reporter covering the White House in Washington, D. C. Daniel Lipman here in our I heard radio special. It sounds like the tone among members of Congress has changed quite a bit. It does not sound like a long lengthy list of objections is going to be coming as the Electoral college count continues, starting coming up here in a little bit. More than half our eyes that what you're hearing as well that this process will well, actually, now move pretty quickly. I don't think there's a ton of members who want to be on the sides of the side of the riders. In the mob who stormed the capital on so I think they made their point. And so I think they're so go, um More quickly and not sure exactly how long how late into the night. It will last, But, uh, definitely the winds have shifted. Where if they had that storm that then we could have had our you know, a day long debate. But because of this, uh you know, historic disruption, then they think it will be faster. Were you surprised by the reports that it appeared to be vice President Mike Pence, who was coordinating the security situation, especially when it comes to the D. C National Guard with the Pentagon, the acting secretary of defense. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Leadership in Congress that that was coming from the vice president and not the president himself. Little surprised, although they didn't need the president's approval for this, um and so I think there was more being notified. And so the Pentagon approved these two requests from the D C. Mayor. And because I think the Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, he has control over the D. C. National guard. Um And so I was part of the reason D C does not is not a state so they don't They lack control over everything. Um, but Um, you know, Vice President Pence is a little unclear where he was taken. He was taking a secure facility. Your secure location. After it looked like they had lost control of the capital. And so I was a mad rush to get those lawmakers out there. You know, you've seen this famous photos from the wire services of, um House House members hiding, um and the guns drawn. That's just amazing insight we shouldn't was was You know, we shouldn't lose sight of that. The images. They're just surreal. Really. I'm joined by politico reporter Daniel Lippman recapping all that took place on Capitol Hill and in Washington, D C Today And right now it looks like there is still a standoff among some members of what it looks like was the crowd that was at the Capitol building earlier today, and law enforcement in Washington D. C. From what? You were hearing in advance of today. How significant word the security concerns. From lawmakers and those in the DC area. Um, it was, um You know they were significant, but I think they just members also underestimated how, uh, you know how violent it could get in terms of storming it. I don't think any of the, uh You know, I don't think many of the protesters were actually stormed the building. They didn't want to do violence against they don't wanna Uh, you know, hurt the members of Congress. They wanted to make a political point. Uh, and they wanted to get their 15 minutes of fame and get their self. He's Other grandkids. Hey, I was there. It doesn't seem like they've gotten much..

"At the thermometer on you on your cars. It's 36 in Annandale. We have 37 degrees in college Park and 32 degrees and all day at 4 10. Has the window closes on President Trump's term he's having to face his first major loss from the Republicans who support him. This afternoon, the GOP led Senate voted like the house did and overturned the president's veto of the defense authorization Act with an 81 to 13 vote. Let's learn more with political White House reporter Daniel Lipman. Thanks so much for being here, Daniel, There was a fair amount of surprise when the president veto this $741 billion defense package. Can you break down what happened and why? Why Yes. So the reason he says he vetoed the bill is that it did not have a repeal of section 2 30, which is the liability shield for big tech companies that allows them not to get sued. Some content on their platforms. He wanted to add that onto this unrelated bill on so he was very strident that the fact that Congress didn't do that meant that he should reject this bill. Does the president take it as an affront that so many Republicans went against him? I'm sure he's not thrilled, Um, by the large margin in the Senate to overturn his veto, But he can't be surprised. You know, senators of both parties. They want to be seen a supporting. Defense and the military on you know, even if they're still many of them are still loyal to trump. That doesn't mean that they're going to blindly follow him and keep his veto in place. When this is a pretty bipartisan bill, it's been passed for 60 years. Um, you know, every year sometimes there's been a few Vito's during that time, but nothing based on something petty in terms of Trump's anger it Twitter and Facebook for not Helping conservatives enough, Daniel. There were a number of Republicans who voted for the bill, who said they would change their mind to support the president and support his veto. Did that happen? There were some a couple that, uh did but this is it wasn't enough to get um you know the get trump to keep his veto in place. And so the spill is going to be law and you know, military You know, men and women can kind of rest assured that it's not. You know, there will be no disruption and, you know, congressional and federal government support for the military. And so, um, you know, there are still members of Congress to want to be seen as loyal to trump, but they recognize you know, many of them recognize the reality situation, which is in less than three weeks. He will be less much less powerful. Hey, before we go, let's talk about January. 6th President Trump doesn't want Republicans to certify the electoral count, Senator Josh Holly says he'll oblige what's at stake for Republicans. And what does it mean for the country? Well, what it means for the country is that you're going to see a pretty long day, potentially on January 6th where Republicans, you know, certain. A couple of Republicans raise objections. Um, and they try toe have long debates about electoral fraud and voter issues. Um, when Mitch McConnell, he would rather just get it over with. On. It's gonna create an awkward spot for Mike. Pence and see is presiding over the hearing over the procedure, But I think this kind of under the fact that there are still challenges to this election undermines the transition of power, especially since Trump is unlikely to show up at the inauguration. He has not had any phone call or meeting with Biden, which is The kind of the usual course of action with an outgoing president, and then come on one, But I think you know, the bigger point is that they're gonna be tens of millions. Americans who think Joe Biden is an illegitimate president. Trump will try toe, you know, potentially run for office again in 2024 2 of then she's lost. Hey, Daniel, Thanks so much for being with us and happy New Year. Thanks You, too. Thanks, Political White House reporter Daniel Lippman. Sports Next.
