magazine's national political correspondent and the author of a new book called simply pelo see Molly ball good morning good morning thanks for having me up when policy says that think big she's thinking another trillion dollars on top of the nearly three trillion Congress has already moved up where do negotiations stand at the moment are they haven't really gotten under way hi there's been at this point sort of a stand off with you know the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell making some comments about not wanting to do anything for me or at least not wanting to rush it and then as you alluded to there's also this site is stand off about whether Congress should even come back into session with the Senate deciding it well in the house deciding it won't as so I don't think that they can go she Asians have have really gotten under way I think you see the two sides staking out publicly we're there with the positions I'd like to go she Asians to start from how bruising with the fight B. within her party if the next package doesn't include things remembers one like money for election security and broadband access so far we have seen the fight mostly between the two parties there were only a very few votes against the last package from both the Democrats and the Republicans I and I think that the democratic caucus in the house has a lot of faith in speaker Pelosi and her negotiating abilities meaning that they know she's a very tough negotiator and they mostly believe that she is going to sort of scratch and claw for the very maximum she feels she can get she is a master of maximizing her leverage so when she comes to the caucus and says this is the best I could do this is as far as I could push them I they mostly take her at her work well let's talk about that because you've just written a portrait of Nancy Pelosi and you you know show a woman who is exceedingly good at negotiating with her caucus and very much in control of what's the point you make is that the fight over the affordable Care Act was the defining moment of her legislative career do you think this moment with the pandemic battering the country and trillions of dollars heading out the door may push the ACA out of that top spot I tend to doubt it honestly just because whatever's being done now is fundamentally a response in a relief effort we don't see big policies being enacted that will change society for decades to come and that's how she views the affordable Care Act as the linchpin of her legacy it is very much the way she wants to be remembered is for her pivotal role in enacting you know it's close to universal access to healthcare as we have gotten in the life of this country and that's a goal that Democrats and been trying and failing to get to for the better part of a century so is someone who really sees her lodestar as improving the lives of America's children that's what she always says her work is focused towards and I think she believes that that that bill did more to advance that goal than any other policy she's played a pardon I over her thirty year career there's a dynamic in the house that seems similar to the one that come with experience on the Republican side there was the freedom caucus tea parties who shouted the loudest even though there were more middle of the road Republicans pelo see has the squad to some members who are very far to the left and they get a disproportionate amount of attention is she doing any better in terms of corralling the far left in her party I think she quite obviously is as witnessed by the fact that the house is not come to a standstill on her watch we did see the freedom caucus symbol and before the tea party caucus paralyze the house when Republicans controlled it and the Republican speakers on able to maneuver around them or get them back into the tent the so called squad is for members that is not a very large portion of the Democrats majority and died and and so you know and I think it helps that speaker Pelosi herself comes from if not the far left wing certainly the progressive wing of the party she's a member of the congressional progressive caucus which constitutes the majority of Democrats in the house and so she can go to the most of the liberals and say I'm coming from where you're coming from but we have to meet our our colleagues both the moderates in the democratic caucus and the Republicans on the other side of the aisle we've got to move in their direction if we want to get anything done and since she is always oriented toward results oriented toward getting things done that is always the argument she's going to make it just finally you know she is the most powerful woman ever in American politics why has it taken so long for her to get as you say her do I think there's a lot of larger sort of socio cultural factors that have gone into ice I spend a lot of the book talking about their perceptions of her the negative perceptions of her the way her image has been shaped and molded and I really think that as a culture for a lot of reasons we've only recently come around to appreciating the sort of determined aggressive polarizing figure that she represents she really is a pioneer but for a long time the sort of negative image of her prevailed and I think that she's coming in for reconsideration at this moment in history when we are seeing an unprecedented wave of women's political activism the search turned around and said oh she was here the whole time she was here before we

Sanders wins Nevada's Democratic caucuses
"Bernie Sanders is the candidate to beat in the democratic presidential primary not all the precincts have reported yet but the consensus is clear it was Bernie's big night in Nevada we have just put together a multi generational multi reg racial coalition which is going to not only win in Nevada it's going to sweep this country this means Sanders has now won two of the first three contests he was also in a virtual tie for first in Ohio with people to judge but the Sanders campaign is clearly looking ahead to the bigger delegate rich states voting soon and put our political correspondent Scott Detrow joins us now from Reno he's got a good morning all right the Sanders campaign was expecting a win here and that's what they got they worked hard in Nevada especially with Latinos in terms of how they one is this the performances campaign was hoping for exactly what they wanted there's been so much conversation about how Sanders was winning but with a quarter of the vote in benefiting from a crowded field he's close to double that support in that at about forty six percent right now with half of precincts reporting so far ahead of anybody else and beyond that he won in a lot of demographic groups according to entrance polls he won with women men college graduates non college graduates he did exceptionally well with Latino voters compared to the other candidates and in Nevada at least Sander suddenly has the makings of a candidate who can put together a broad coalition at least on the democratic side after the strong showing a couple of Sanders's democratic rivals went after him in their speeches the moderates are clearly are trying to stop this train yeah Joe Biden the former vice president who came in second with about a little less than twenty percent of the vote in the caucuses he said he's not a socialist not a plutocrat he's a Democrat and proud of it hitting Sanders and Michael Bloomberg as well but judge was notable he was pretty harsh in his concerns about Bernie Sanders that he laid out last night I believe the only way to truly deliver any of the progressive changes the we care about is to be a nominee who actually gives a damn about the affect you were having from the top of the ticket on those critical frontline house it included judges referring to something that a lot of party leaders are worried about that that Bernie Sanders as a democratic socialist could really undo a lot of the games the party is made in the suburbs whichever course where the party won back control of the house of representatives so after those criticisms it was notable to me that Sanders takes the stage in Texas and guess what would sound a lot like a possible general election message against president trump we are going to win here in Texas

It's probably pretty standard after this. I'm going to go to abolish the caucus parties. This oh wait Polish. We're here to talk about the caucus and you're going to abolish the clock. I mean I think you talked to anybody who participate in the caucus they can tell you. It's not a very efficient system. Okay this is great. Let's get into it because everyone else is telling me how great the caucus system is. Why do you want to abolish it there? There are quite a few reasons First off I think Iowa gets A little bit too much leverage in deciding who's going to be the next president I and I don't think are as a whole is necessarily deserving of that leverage. Because what do you disagree no. I agree agrees because we don't really represent the rest of the population of the whole United States In both occupation and of racial diversity because a lot of importance to the occupations and the people here which. I'm sure the people here really appreciate it. But I don't think it's particularly fair to people the WHO don't live in Iowa. Is it strange being in Iowa. We have this huge opportunity to kick off the presidential season while saying that we should not have that role. Okay so I'm from Illinois and so when I moved to Iowa state. I moved here for the Engineering School and had and I was always interested in politics but I had no idea like what a caucus was. I heard about them but never really pay them any any tension cousin Illinois. We're just part suzy And then I moved here and was madness and like everyone would talk with. The caucuses focuses when I was a sophomore presidential cameras would start coming would start coming to campus and I was like what is this. Why are they over here and how exciting? It was exciting but it was also so weird like it was so stupid as a lot. Because presidential candidates come Oh years or the grains are younger. People interested in abolishing now a caucus. Is there an appetite for that. I think that young people are just starting to get adjusted to. What the caucuses are art because of first time going to them so I don't think too? Many young people really have an opinion of them yet. I don't think there's necessarily an appetite for the caucuses in the first place to be honest most yeah. Most people don't really know what a caucus I especially for. Yeah I'm we're three days away and people are still like what is the caucus. How do I do a yeah? Is it different than an election. Which is interesting because you think? The campaigns being so present on campus would have kind of snuffed out any of that confusion. But it's still there so interesting because seems like the campaigns need young voters and you feel like they are not doing the work to explain voters. What the Caucuses I was at club fest January twenty second I think and so there was a partner board that was the caucus and then underneath and so is underneath. Yeah and so many people would come up to me and they're like I've heard about this. What is it like there was that was like most of the people that I got? They weren't interested in joining a club which they should club. Really the most influential way to get people to do something is by knowing them and talking to them. Like so. If you're talking to your friends friends about it. It's called relational organizing. That's kind of a dumb term so if you're talking to your friends about it like they're going to be wanting to do something if you care about it what are the issues that are motivating trading you guys. Let's change and change yeah. Climate Change Healthcare. That's big one young and I'd say that's fairly true across campus so at Ah other times that we would do things with cluster destination. I would say only sings students. Come up to us and we're OUTTA booth. We would always have little jars for Lauren. Poll ooh for Corn Corn poll famous Iowa. Corn full is at the State Fair where they put in the people through yeah kernel of corn into a we have. I have a very small version of that just with nations mason jars and then we don't have actual corn but we do have popcorn kernels and so you couldn't get actual corn. I mean not to be stereotypical it is. I will the next item so every time we those little corn polls one of the things that we would ask. What's your top issue? We'd have ten jars laid out of different issues and the biggest one was always kind of change. Turn Out Between College Age. Voters doubled between twenty fourteen and twenty eighteen. Oh Yeah Yeah it's route do feel that energy going into the presidential year. Do you feel like college. Kids are going out there and vote yes more so yeah yeah. I don't know if it's a normal thing or not but there are so many volunteers from each campaign outside of the Parks Library like every Monday like anybody's anybody and everybody stopping you cold outside. There is some days that I would see people out there when it was like twenty degrees. I feel so bad for them because like their faces look cold and they like look like they're like losing a little bit of color it is handing you could you just tell them you'll caucus for the candidate just to make them feel warmer award them. Thank you guys so much for spending part of your Friday talking about the have a caucus of course enjoy Monday night. Thank you rob sand. The state auditor is not going to abolish the caucus parties. On Friday nights he understands the criticisms which we're going to dive into in the next episode but he thinks the community aspect of the caucuses are what make them special twenty eighteen rob won his seat which has been held by Republican. Thirty six years before we hear from rob. I should mention this guy is a political rockstar in Iowa. Everyone knows his name. And he's the state auditor. I do not know the name of the New York state auditor her. I don't even know if New York has a state auditor I could look it up but this is about Iowa. It's not about new. York brought told me hunting season just ended otherwise we would have done this interview while bow hunting. There's always next time the actual moment caucusing and super interesting because as you said you have to publicly express who you're supporting and then to your neighbors you have to defend it or switch sides but the downside of caucusing is it takes so long. Yes yes so what do you think about that side of it for people who are working hourly jobs they just cast a ballot and get get. I adore that's a fair criticism. In the way that we conceive of our society I where a lot of times we see ourselves first as consumers and second citizens listens when the reality is citizenship is our is always our first job in a republic. That is a problem but maybe the answer the solution to that is not to say. Oh well we should just make voting. As as quick as possible and spend as little time as possible and maintaining our democracy and maintaining our social fabric rarely the social fabric between a neighborhood and neighbors that holds us all together. Maybe what we should do is actually structure our our laws in our labor laws or or anything else in a way that supports it. It's the ties between people who again make the impact which is part of why organizing in Iowa's very important the person that's your precinct captain for your campaign if the people walk into that room and they see someone that ever be buddy knows and respects. They're like okay. You walk into that room and they see somebody not that nobody wants to stand by for fifteen minutes. Because they're not going to stop talking big problem you let interpersonal politics right. But that's but that's that's what I'm talking about. I mean we talk so much about the tearing of our Social Fabric and Ioan this institution here called a caucus that everybody wants to get rid of because it's too inefficient. It's inefficient friendship right right. Well I mean building social ties right you know going out and sitting around with your neighbors and talking about things you know if if all were focused on getting everything done and this is from someone who cares a lot about efficiency if all we're focused on all the time is getting everything done as quickly as possible then. We don't take the a time to build the systems and the relationships that actually help us accomplish bigger things. Organizing is incredibly important here because number one. It is a little bit more asked to get somebody to go caucus indisputably it takes longer than voting. Right we have made it more accessible this year. The party is a good job of providing other opportunities but at the end of the day for the most part people are going to go out. And it's going to take a couple of hours so it's a bigger ask. It is cold. Yeah although right now this amazing did you see all the people running shorts yesterday shorts yeah. We're celebrating this spring. Basically Spring is here. Every political observer journalists hunt it and campaign agrees that organizing is extremely important in Iowa and in the final days before the caucuses. The campaigns are mobilizing volunteers around the state. That of course includes Bernie Sanders who has created an incredible ground game here. So we're going to go to one of his field offices and see what that looks.
"democratic caucus" Discussed on Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast
"So what makes this year's caucuses really hard to predict is the number of undecided voters and the number of voters who could just change their mind come caucus night to get a sense of why so. Many Democrats are still undecided with just days to go. We're going to talk with two undecided caucus goers in downtown des Moines which toy price just assured me has tall buildings were three days away from the Iowa caucus and yet about forty five percent voters could change their minds in the next few days since since the campaign started about forty five million dollars have been spent in TV. Ads Closure has done one hundred eighty two events Yang one hundred and seventy seven Buddha judge one hundred and fifty Bernie one hundred thirty Biden Aden one hundred eleven warren ninety nine. There's so much money. The candidates are spending so much time here and yet so many voters are still undecided. Do not understand how boaters can still be undecided so we wanted to come to Iowa and talked to undecided voters. This is my aunt and Uncle Pam and Harry Potter and Harry. How are you still undecided? Three days away question career. We're still trying to figure it out. So what are you weighing your three days out. You guys have been involved in democratic politics in Iowa forever. Why does this feel different? Why's it so hard? Well I think thank you gotTa start with there. Were so many more candidates and so many more candidates that are viable type candidates in the past Like four years ago it was Bernie and Hillary so you had your choice of to Carter was the one that started but that was a little bit before time but we were supporting supporting him in the number of the other races. There were only two or three candidates that really mattered. So was lot easier to make up your mind the other thing that I would say. Is that all the candidates this year. It's unusual in the sense that they all have some great attributes and they all have some challenging situations But at the same time the thing that is really upset and caused a lot of this is the fact that electability is now a prominent issue as well. Was the qualification. In at least for me it does Because I I think you know if you WANNA go with your gut or your heart. That's one choice and then if you think about the electability issue that's that's a whole other thing and it's I'm just trying to wait. An electability really seems like an incredibly difficult thing to measure. Anyone can reluctant the least quote unquote least electable exactly. All your friends are undecided. You're saying I I know to people who have committed to a candidate. Wow yes I think. The Iowa caucuses are very hard to read. Because you have have different groups of people you have The people in the cities here which represent more than half the population but you also have a lot of rural communities is that have different values different subjects that that matter to them and it's so dispersed rural vote. That was a really big deal during the Obama campaign because so many people that live in Des Moines many of the young people that I met when I worked on the campaign their families were. We're still living in rural counties. Their grandparents who had been Republicans for life and they were voting. They voted for Obama and the press. Never got any any of that right because we the day of the Caucus Harry. We were at starbucks talking to Dan. Balls from the Washington Post and in having this conversation and he rolled right in and he said Oh. It's John Edwards by a mile. Yes he said he famously went on to have a huge political career. uh-huh who has who has the MO and that was one year political journalist. Love talking about the ED or other other reporters around I always said who who has the Mo that's I asked them so So it's it's really hard to tell because people take very seriously and if there's more than two or three candidates it's it's hard to choose especially ones that have things you like about him and things you don't so I think this year that's the reason it's this way and then you add the electability factor and that's why everybody can't figure it out. Yesh two thousand seven. You were involved in the Obama campaign in Iowa. And then you became a precinct. Captains how do you become a precinct. Captain what does a precinct captain. Do I think pretty much anybody that wants to be a priest. Just raise their hand. I want to be a precinct captain and they'll be really happy to have you know vetting process. Well the I think the campaign selects who will be the candidates precinct so so we were precinct captains for Obama. Yes so we Obama. I was there that night. Obama won that precinct. Explain what you do as a precinct captain before the caucus during the actual thing well actually in this case of Obama which was Kinda unique we most people have a what they call chilly. Party before the Before so you walk over with the your supporters your co supporters of a candidate and you walk over to the caucus together other so we actually had a chilly party at our home for a bunch of people who support really what it goes into. Excuse me but really I mean I think whenever he wants to know is what what is your responsibility and you responded okay. Responsibility leading up to it is basically to make sure that everybody Rosie sinked has been called has been sent. An email has been contacted contacted in more than one way to make sure that they will attend the caucus and the thing to remember about the Obama campaign which was very different. There were many people that caucus would never caucus before and and those people a lot of them were very nervous. A lot of them were Republicans they were independence and they they had never even been to a caucus so you have to make sure that people are comfortable with the whole process and that falls on the precinct captain and that leads into the Chili Party that we hosted that way everybody who had never been came to our house first so they could be ed with other people going walking in together so that they felt that they were part of a group and not vulnerable in any way. And I imagine the vulnerabilities kind of unique to the Iowa Caucus in Congress you have to publicly support for early absolutely. It's not A. It's not something you right down in private. You stand up for for that person. Explain the importance of the Chili Dinner. The momentum does the boat bill the most they say here in Iowa. I think that everybody wanted to be together. Do you know what I mean. I can't even explain it. You which is what I think makes this time so hard because we don't have have that feeling we just don't have that feeling of excitement. I'm sure there are many people who are supporting candidates that do have it and I'm happy for them sad for myself. Yeah I want it and I think that that was really is really very much a part of it you just you want people bill to feel so excited to walk in there and they did. I mean we like eighty people strong like marched in and it was so crowded and our caucus that that they had to bump the Clinton people into the hallway and that people go off even after they bunch snow shovels every site Tapie. What's the worst pandering you've seen from candidates or maybe news outlets? Well I would say last night what I heard trump say at that The rally all he's done for Iowa and he's done so much for Iowa farmers that they're going to need more land and bigger tractors. Okay Whoa I is there. You'll expand into Nebraska and Minnesota unclear but his his rally was you know they went wild when they heard that. Thank you so much for chatting with us. He thinks we'll see what happens you days. Let's see thank you. Let me know if you decide on a candidate before Before Monday Sunday we definitely will have to. We wait 'til Monday night. Seven.

"I was talking to someone on the campaign today and they were saying they absolutely love the circular firing squad of the Democrats on both the candidates and then of course the unrest in the Democratic Caucus. Just how how the speaker handles it is a fascinating question but it's worth noting that this all began or at least this latest set of grievances with Speaker Pelosi Telling Maureen Dowd in an interview basically that these four women have a four votes and that's really and they don't matter that much in Pelosi in the same way we saw a O._C.. Today be very deliberate and those on the record comments <hes> with my colleagues at the Post Speaker Pelosi does very little that is not calculated and deliberate and precise so she she is trying to isolate these members. You could see her sort of continuing with this strategy. She is incredibly steely that something even the president respects about her and one of the real questions is is what Speaker Pelosi said true that it's just four members for loud members with a very loud social media following but just four votes or are they going to do something like the has freedom caucus did on the right where they get a block of members together who can actually block democratic initiatives and really make us speaker Pelosi's life difficult because they have the power they have the massive votes that can actually change the way her conference votes enforcer to sort of move further to the left and towards their policy goals and it's only Wednesday night thanks to our friends Ashley Parker and Phil Rucker for agreeing to stick around and talk about this topic on top of everything else we appreciate it coming up the Intel chiefs made clear to Congress today the extent of the threat to our next election.

"So for Donald Trump to, to be crying over of, you know, the cold, this, meaning right before meeting, is just, you know, it's, it's more bullshit out of the mouth of the orange turn so anyway, so Nancy Pelosi met with House Democratic caucus and really top on the agenda was dealing with a growing calls for impeachment. So this happened before her scheduled eleven AM eating at the White House to talk infrastructure was supposed to be round two of infrastructure. Right. So she emerged from that meeting went to the microphones spoke longer than this. But this is the part that I guess, got the president so freaked out. And you believe that it's important to follow the facts we believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up. Oh, cover up nature. Okay. So, so she said he's engaged in a cover up, well after that, so Nancy Pelosi finished her meeting with her caucus, did their little press avail, and then Chuck and Nancy went to the White House for their big follow infrastructure meeting with individual, one extensively to hash out a two trillion dollar package, but Donald two different plans house majority leader Steny Hoyer for whom I usually have no use.

"The Democrats have mutual ground on things like border security with technology and so forth. But the one big difference is the Democrats cannot accept the fact that that that wall physical barriers necessary in some parts of the border, despite the fact that a democratic president helped build one hundred thirteen Democrats on the hill. You can talk about presidential candidates all you want. You can talk about certain members of congress. But the ones who are actually in the room at the table negotiating this have been talking about. She didn't die. You look at the packages that Democrats have passed in the past and that they are promoting today the democratic majority in the congress is for investing overall wars security and. But the problem, I respect you tremendously. But this is the problem is that this is all you guys wanna talk about let me finish the point. I was trying to hear about it. It's an issue that is a crazy everybody. Whether there is more to immigrate to immigration than just a wall as hard as you guys want to make it about that. Hey, there is more than just a wall. I hold on hold on. The number of immigration review when the Democrats killed it in two thousand zero have caught me off Republicans supposedly agreeing upon border security technology, and so forth, where they disagree is is that the majority of the democratic caucus don't want money for a border wall. Here here is so much more that needs to be done at this prejudice. I go not talk about there is a humanitarian issue.

"I think it's very hard to Pete somebody who's done a great job. That's number one. And and we even talked about that today. I said why don't you use this for impeachment an ANSI said, we're not looking to impeach you. I said that's good Nazi. That's good. But you know, what? You don't impeach people when they're doing a good job, and you don't apiece people when there was no collusion because there was no collusion that was the president of today. Addressing the possibility of impeachment now that the Democrats control the house as you might have heard his comments were in response to a freshman member of congress who use some very colorful non-family language to push the issue on her first day on the job. People love you. And you win when your son looks at you and says momma, look, you one bullies don't win. And maybe they talked because we're going to go on there going to teach them. Show us your imagination there. The new house leadership isn't necessarily ready to commit to making impeachment a priority. Here is the new speaker. You have to weigh the equities that is not the position of the House Democratic caucus on the equity. Wade is that's freedom of speech and individual member say generation Lee that would not be line which I would use. But nonetheless, I don't I don't think we should make a big deal of it. I really don't now NBC's Jonathan Allen who joins us again in just a moment. Summed up this dynamic today. And this got our attention, quote, it didn't take long for newly empowered House Democrats to lose control of their message on the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump less than a day. So back with us the aforementioned Jonathan Allen, we talked into spending even more time with us, and Jonathan friend of mine likes to say never underestimate the Democrats ability to screw things up. A be a lot of these young. Tim Kratz were elected. They believe on a voting wish in the liberal districts on a platform of impeaching this guy. Absolutely. And then even a lot of Democrats in districts where they're represented by more moderate members believe in that potential that you're seeing right now is there is a democratic base. That is hungry to see see Donald Trump removed from office. Obviously a lot of them would like to see that happen to twenty twenty at the ballot box. But a lot of people believe that there there is already evidence enough for impeachment. There is this push among the democratic electorate for that. And the counterweight right now is that they're very degrees. Among the democratic elected officials as to what the merits of that all right now, whether it's wise to do it both in terms of the prudence of the constitutional question of whether anything Donald Trump has done rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. And then, of course, the political question of whether it's advantages or disadvantageous for them to move forward. Right now. Obviously, Nancy Pelosi's argument is that they should wait for the mother report to come forward. Most of the democratic elected officials. I talked to today. Most of the House Democrats I talked to. Said that they believe that they should wait for the mullahs report that it made sense to wait for that to see what he comes to what conclusions. He draws before they decide whether or not to move forward. I believe watching a good bit of the other network that Fox News is planning to run and Republicans are against the Democrats as if congresswoman Okaz CEO Cortes, the new very young democrat from New York is president of the United States, even though her name will not be on the ballot. She is pushing a goal of being free of. Of a fossil fuels in twelve years. Forget about cars. No one has said how we would fly. And in an interview coming up this weekend on sixty minutes. She's talking about a seventy percent tax bracket for those quote at the tippy top of the American earning population.

"Have anything to do with the Russians does it No, that's correct my reporting has focused on the House, Democratic caucus server and there's been some confusion there because you know obviously the House Democratic caucus is similar in mission to the DNC. And, it sounds similar and basically two days after WikiLeaks got hacked Debbie Wasserman Schultz is IT guy. Got accused by the house inspector general of hacking a similar group so the timing of it in. The nature of it and the, people involved were all very similar and you know some? People wonder could he have been involved in the WikiLeaks as, well my reporting is focused on what the evidence strongly, strongly supports which is, that there was this. Hack on, Capitol Hill and in my mind that's. A serious thing after all the DNC, is merely a fundraising group what we're talking about his government servers and what this instance. Revealed is sort of a stunning hypocrisy where the Democrats didn't. Want basically what happened is. It would have been an inconvenient narrowed it really. Would accomplish The narrative for them for this guy to be, busted and arrested two days after the DNC thing happened and then you've got this you know you would have had media stories about. Debbie, Wasserman Schultz's Pakistani IT guy being arrested for hack into the house them credit caucus server no. One's gonna keep that keep track of that and how different than the Russians in the DNC so. In my mind what happened here, is the Democrats were willing to jeopardize national security to? Secure this Russian narrative so it's all about the perception in, the way that the separate hack would have complicated that, narrative and then in, the end of the. Day Democrats, chose the narrative rather than you know. Security so can you can you for, anybody who doesn't know about this case can you in three minutes kind of summarize who. This guy is what he did with his family you know. All of that stuff Sure so he started working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz a decade ago. And pretty soon he had his entire family on the payroll and they won't make it as much. As congressman in Capitol Hill very unusual for, IT guys the whole thing was just stink and. These second they were making over one hundred and fifty thousand the average? IT person on the hill makes about fifty thousand right correct and none of these nobody in this. Family had, any experience in IT Imron wanted but the relatives who were putting on they they, didn't even go to college one of the, guys worked at McDonalds and so you've got members. Like Ted lieu who's a very outspoken liberal on these Russia and cybersecurity issues they were putting these people, who had criminal records no. Cybersecurity training you know they had massive red flags and their backgrounds like. A. Million dollars in debts and they, would lie about it on, their financial disclosures and you know these Democrats exempted them from background checks and the whole thing I it just was astonishingly stylishly reckless and negligent and the. Democrats couldn't have been worse on. Cybersecurity and this has been going on from a decade ago until. You know through the two thousand sixteen election and it's a, twenty, seventeen. And so the I. Found that they were funneling data off the network There were logging into servers, of places they, had no business being some of the members fired them over the last couple of years and they wound up logging, into their servers anyway why would they do. That it's just really scary, stuff and so these, guys got found out about this before the, election but they just kind of..

"We are back on ring of fire radio i'm sam cedar here with dignity so heather when we broke we were talking about the last segment just the the the insanity their wearing tisza painting for this month because there's so many crosscurrents of agendas here and one thing though has been relatively consistent fact incredibly consistent from early on in the trump administration and that is been the unity of the democratic caucus and i think nancy pelosi's known to maintain a fairly good discipline in the democratic caucus over the past chuck schumer i think his leadership style leaves something to be desired and certainly i have some issues with the the political agendas of both of them but nevertheless we have seen a discipline amongst democrats that you and i have never seen before her and i think this is a function of how toxic donald trump is not just because of what he says on a bus or you know even his racism i think it's also the investigations that have been taken place i don't know what's your take on that oh i i absolutely agree with you i think look the underlying everything that's going on with trumpcare is incompetent to create new behavior everything about it is this notion it's not really a notion need there is evidence to suggest that he was you know help uh it maybe the best face on it and perhaps actually installed on some level with the help of the russian government now when you stop and think about that from the perspective give of repub of what we've auto known for years about tv posted conservative national security party republican party his downing its its historical if on you know if they send real then they would be the ones who would be bearing that burden and i think that we don't know what people in congress know but i suspect they know more than we do you think they've obviously talk they know things there perhaps not charity i don't no but i suspect that they know more than we do and this unanimity among the democrats and particularly on this issue i mean there is no break in that at all and they haven't been acting out you know what i mean i mean they haven't been doing the usual kind of benghazi level nonsense amman democrats or republicans even as well nunez and his crew in the.
