Schumer and senator gillibrand joining the pile on now demanding. Cuomo's resignation is front page news all over the country tonight so far cuomo himself is showing no signs of heating these demands for his resignation if he refuses to resign ultimately the only way he can be removed from office against his will before the next election of course is by impeachment as we reported here last night. Democrats in the state legislature in new york have announced the opening of an impeachment inquiry targeting cuomo acid yesterday. If they do impeach him in the assembly he will then go on trial in the new york senate where a majority of new york senators have already called on him to resign thus making it seem more than just likely that he would be convicted in the senate and removed from office if the assembly goes ahead and impeach him but again that process has just starting and again. Lots of calls tonight. That this news. About senator. Schumer and senator gillibrand means. It is over for governor. Cuomo seems disagree.

Social Media And Free Speech During A Polarizing Time

"Moves that net neutrality is brought that the FCC has reason to be proud of, but But let me ask you this. Through the root of our conversation two years ago and to the next several minutes of this interview The Internet is even more now than it was two years ago, right because the kids are going to school and everybody's working from home. We all need it as we need electricity and plumbing. Why should it not be regulated as such? So I do believe that the debate is no longer a debate over whether Internet access is a luxury or a necessity. It's a necessity. To me. It's clear that the utility style regulation that would be imposed of net neutrality. Does not serve the consumer at the end of the day. Perhaps the best evidence comes from abroad in Europe, which has disease till the style regulations treats the Internet. Like the water company, the electric company regulators had to go hat in hand to companies like Netflix and YouTube at the beginning of the pandemic and ask them to proactively throttle content to consumers because they had not had the infrastructure investment needed. To keep up more over. There are parts of the digital divide in Europe that are not getting addressed because there's simply not an incentive to build those networks. So let's talk about private companies here and some of the power they have in this economy. And I need to turn the page to section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act, which is in the waning days of your chairmanship has become the net neutrality of 2020 and 2021, right. The The provisions of the law that gives immunity for social media companies and many others for what people say on that site. Um do you think I'm just gonna go straight for the £800 gorillas? First? Do you think Twitter and Facebook have too much power? I do think that those companies, among others in the social media space do not operate by the same principles that other companies in the Internet economy do. For example, with respect to Twitter, who makes the decisions about content moderation, why is one actor not allowed to post but the supreme leader if Iran is These are the types of things that with respect to Internet service providers, the FCC's instituted regulations and I think that's part of the reason why in the halls of Congress is a growing bipartisan consensus that we need to re examine the regulatory framework for these companies. Now the FCC doesn't have authority here. That's a decision for Congress and the next administration to make. But I do think that there is a growing questions about transparency and consistency. If the FCC doesn't have authority here, why did you say a number of months ago You were going to take a look at a new rule. Teofilo out how to implement to 30 at one might reasonably assume the behest of the president. United States who has not been shy about his feelings about this law. What we don't have authority to change the law, which is what's many elected officials are talking about with respect to this section, 2 13 ounce and I made the Department of Commerce submitted a petition to us and we made it into print dependent determination that we had legal authority to interpret that their immunity provisions and that narrow provision only. That's one of the things that we were considering, and we decided that there wasn't time to move forward. But Do you think this is an issue that's going to grow as the social media increasingly becomes the public square when it comes to political discourse? Well, just pause to note Children screaming the background and random thuds Because we're on a roll world. We're all making radio from our living rooms. Sorry about that. Now, look, it's the way it is. It's the way it is. Let me let me actually just just pick up on what you just said and ask you sort of the following question, right? Because in in a matter of six or seven days or whatever it is, you will no longer be the chairman of the FCC. There will be somebody else. Who will be a Democrat approved by the Democratic Senate now On by wonder about this idea that you and I talked about last time Regulatory ping pong Because net neutrality is going to come back up section 2 30 is going to come up. And whoever chairs the FCC is probably gonna have an opposite point of view as to you. What What is the role of Congress in these decisions? And, um I guess why? Why? Why do our regulatory agencies have to do this kind of ping Pong? Congress needs to put on the page exactly what the rules should be so that administrative agencies don't swing back and forth, depending on the political affiliation of its leader. Now, you mentioned that neutrality that I think it's an actual, relatively simple fix. No blocking, no throttling any competitive Honda. Sorry, I can't see I can't help but laugh When you say it's a simple fix. I mean, come on. It is no. I think it is in terms of the substance now the politics of course, there are much more difficult. But even beyond that, for example, my first major speeches chairman, I urged Congress To think about infrastructure legislation. This is back in 2017, allocating 50, or even $60 billion for broadband. And if they had done that, in a bipartisan way back, then think about how much better off would be today. And so I think that it's important for Congress to update the rules to tell the American people you've elected us to make this judgment about the digital economy. Here is our judgment, and then agencies have a little more certainty, and so would consumers of the end of the day.

Coronavirus Stimulus Talks Moving in Right Direction, Party Leaders Say

"This morning Democrats getting behind a scaled back stimulus toe. Try to restart talks for more. We're joined by Brown University Political science chair Wendy Schiller, professor Good to have you on with us this morning of morning where it seems like stimulus hopes. Spring eternal. But how much hope do you put in Speaker Pelosi in minority leader Schumer backing this bipartisan legislation that was worth about $900 billion it was put forward this week. Good morning, agent. Well, I mean, I think that they recognize that the you know the whole country is being hit really hard by this, but that they're the areas that are you know, traditional sport of Democrats are getting hit again really hard, and they had wanted direct aid for states and cities. They couldn't get it from Trump. They're not going to get from Senate Republicans. So basically someone like Durban and represents Illinois Big City like Chicago has to make a decision system Majority Minority Leader and them hard party and say, all right, we gotta get something you know if we you know, we especially unemployment, either top off or extension or some combination of those things on. I think the Democrats want to get what they can and not turn this into the first battle that Biden have the face once he's inaugurated. Is this about the pandemic, getting to the level that it's at now? Or is this a dose of political reality, given how the election turned out for the house, particularly with Democrats losing seats in November? I do think that the Democrats are not looking at a scenario that they hope to be looking at come January, which was a majority Democratic Senate and then picking up more seats in the house, where they could really, you know, right from ticket with Biden, so given that that's out the window. Even if the Democrats take one or two of US Georgia seats that's still not really a likely scenario you can control the Senate, barely. I have a very razor thin margin in the house now for the Democrats, So yeah, it's a political reality. But I think it's also about what they hope Biden can achieve What becomes president and taking one really big thing off the table before he starts that job, and I think that's a big incentive for them because then they could turn to things like infrastructure, which would also help the economy. Well, what's your sense of what President Biden could achieve. Given the realities of what Senate control is gonna look like either way, depending on how the Georgia run offs turned out, it's going to be a razor thin margin, no matter which way you slice it, and the president elect has said. Whatever gets past if something gets past, but during this lame duck session is going to be a down payment. For something much bigger. Well, right. I mean, this is what you know. Obama wanted a much bigger stimulus than he got in 2009 as well, and he had all three chambers. It's a very hard thing, particularly with it, you know, $3 trillion deficit and rising. So I mean, I just think one of the key factors. Both parties were looking at Tau look towards 2022. Because that's where both parties are looking right now, at least in the Congress side is that suburban voters were willing to split their ticket. And very noticeable voted Republican straight down the line voted for Joe Biden and maybe because it in like Trump. We don't know for sure, but they were willing to do that and then vote for Republicans in other offices, knowing that they're willing to do that means that they're up for Gramps, and I think that's the serve Achilles heel for the Republicans in blocking everything for Biden. I don't think they think they can do that and still safely hold onto the seats they want to defend in 2022, so that's where Biden and the Democrats have a bit of a bargaining advantage. In trying to get moderate proposal through that will help Cove it will help the economy will make suburban voters happy. I'm curious to get your take on how Biden has been starting to fill out his cabinet. Now. There are reports that he plans to announce his health team next week, and one of the names were hearing for health and human services. Secretary is someone that you're familiar with in your home state of Rhode Island Governor Gina Rowe Mondo That Gina Romano has done in an outstanding job in a very small state, but a very, very heavily densely populated state. So she's been dealing with sort of a big outbreak for a long time It subsided. Then it came back. She's been excellent communications and made some missteps very early on in terms of summer management with nursing homes, as other governors did, but generally speaking, has had very high approval ratings and has been thought to make this situation much better than it would have. Then, so she shown leadership in a very stressful time, And she's also communicated really well about why she's doing what she's doing. And I think any pick for HHS secretary has to be an excellent communicator because you have to basically explain the American people why we're doing what we're doing, and when we're doing it, and she's been doing that so consistently, and then it helps bring her state's not complete compliance. Bring her state along in a way that's been relatively successful. Are you surprised at all that, at least so far, we haven't heard any names of Democratic primary opponents on any of Biden's Cabinet shortlists. Well, he can't take. I mean, really. He just can't take anybody out of the Senate. Right? So that takes worn out that takes Sanders out. I know Sanders. People are very disappointed about that on. I think that's what Bernie was hoping for debris Sanders was hoping for, but you just can't take a Democrat out of the Senate. Even the Democratic government still can't do it right now, so that makes sense to me. I think people usually think people wanted him to get something he may still get something There's been talk about veterans affairs. But remember, you know, the Republicans have been relatively accepted to buy these choices so far, except for one choice. Neera Tanden for O M B. I think that's going to hit some some bumps along the way. Probably big bumps. But generally speaking, he wants a smooth Cabinet confirmations, You know process. So anybody who's super politicized more to the left of Biden for a top job. It's just probably out of the question, given the composition of the Senate. Only about 30 seconds left here. Do you think Attorney General Bar is on borrowed time after the voter fraud allegations from President Trump? I think during her borrow, looked ahead to the future and decided does he want to leave the Trump administration with any shred of credibility? And I think this move was designed to show that he wouldn't be try to leave with credibility and confirm the election knowing he's gonna leave anyway. And, you know, thinking about what's next so that he gets fired doesn't get fired. I think what he did was forward thinking for him. Not Miss Ellie and President Trump.

Biden expected to visit Georgia in push to boost Ossoff, Warnock

"Senate control is still up for grabs as you know. Democrats will have to win both runoffs in georgia to take control of the senate. Here's what the president-elect told me about the importance of senate control back in february. I think i'm more ready to be able to defeat. Donald trump and equally importantly george elect a democratic senate. It's not gonna be enough just to beat him. We have to change the senate in order to get things done. Wasn't he right. Then you know one. Former obama official told dan balls to the washington. Post is the difference between having a transformational president versus having to not negotiate everything with a republican senate. Well those two senate seats georgia is important. And we're going to do everything we can to help. Those two cats great candidates in georgia helped them win. We've already move people who were working on the bike. Campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there and i expect you'll see the president-elect travel down there before election day so it's very very important to win those seats the thing the reality of course georgia's that even if we win them. Both and i think we will win the both. I think both candidates doing a great job. We're going to have a closely divided senate kind of under any scenario and i think one challenge that president-elect taken on is trying to work with members of both parties to build consensus for action on things like economic relief like climate change like dealing with our other crises are racism crisis the challenge of fixing our immigration laws and of course obviously fighting covid so We're gonna have a closely divided. Senate whatever happens in. Georgia obviously ruined a win. Those seats i really want to see. Chuck schumer be the next majority leader in the us. Senate i think he and the president-elect have a great relationship. But i know they have a great relationship but however that comes out we are going to deliver for the american people. And that's the mission. Look i think that voters sent a clear sign in twenty twenty and the sign they sent was the want to see things get done. They want action on cove. The economy climate healthcare bringing down health. Care costs wants the action on all of that. We're going deal with whatever lineup. We're faced with in washington to get that done. It would be better if that light was a democratic senate. But if unfortunately i think. I don't think this will happen. But if we were to lose those seats in georgia we're gonna move forward with whatever senate gets elected. There's going to be some tension between getting unity. Getting things done working with republicans in investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the trump administration. The vice president's been reported as express a preference that he has is presence he consumed by trump investigations that has raised some concerns about among some democrats including congressman. Bill pascrell. Who had this to say this week. Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures and twenty twenty one further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues america down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability. How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability. Well let's be clear george. The president-elect spoke about this many times the campaign and what he made it clear that joe biden is not going to tell the justice department who to investigate or who not to investigate. That's what we saw the past four years. The president tampering with the justice department. Egging on investigation so and so forth. He's gonna pick an excellent attorney. General an independent justice department and that department will make decisions independently free of politics free in either direction as to how to enforce the laws. That's the way it should be. That's the way it's always been. That's the way it needs to be if we're going to have the kind of rule of law that so important in our country we're gonna see attorney general state department of treasury. Pick this week. What what. I can confirm george is that you're going to see the first of the president-elect's cabinet appointments on tuesday of this week Meeting the pace Beating in fact the pace that was set by the obama biden transition Beating the pace set by the trump transition So you're going to see. The first cabinet picks this tuesday. But if you wanna know what cabinet agencies they are a who's going to be in those cabinet agencies you'll have to wait for the president-elect to say that Himself on tuesday. I knew you were gonna tell me who it was. I was hoping you might tell me which ones thank you well. We watching claim we want people to to george.

Here's what to know about Georgia's recount of presidential votes

Here's what to know about Georgia's recount of presidential votes

"Is one of the big stories of this year's election in Georgia. In 2000 and 16 around 4.1 million people voted this year It was around five million votes there are still being counted. Joe Biden is leading. But there's going to be a recount and both Senate races in Georgia will go to a runoff in January. Lauren Grow War Go is the CEO of Fair fight Action. That's a group based in Georgia that advocates for voter rights and participation. She is backing the Democratic candidates running for those Senate seats. And she told me that flipping Georgia has been a goal for a long time. This is not some flash in the pan. We have been building this for the better part of a decade, when Stacey Abrams became minority leader a decade ago, after an undercount in the census and a Republican Jerry Mander, she made history by preventing and denying Republicans a supermajority in the state Legislature by winning four seats drawn for Republicans, and that is really where Georgia State legislative dense began building building building along the way. There's been this whole proliferation and building of excellent Second brown community groups working in the Asian American community, the Latino community. There's a larger demographic change happening in Georgia, and now we're gonna leverage. All of this infrastructure know how advocacy and voter contact to win these January run offs. We feel really, really good, and we're gonna make it happen. I did some coverage of voter registration efforts in the state of Wisconsin. And one thing that came through very clearly in the city of Milwaukee, in particular, was how many people felt That their vote didn't matter, particularly when it came to the black community in that city. Is that something that you and your organization are up against in Georgia? Do you have people who tell you I don't feel like it matters or do you think after 2020? It's gonna be real hard to hear anyone say that anymore. I don't think there's any doubt we have beat Donald Trump by 14,000. That shows that every vote does matter. And that we have to continue our work. There are still hundreds of thousands of Georgians who chose not to vote and we have to continue to do our work as an organization to reach out to voters and meet them where they are and listen to them. We learned this week that Georgia will do a hand recount of all of the ballots cast in this presidential election. There were about five million of them. What are your thoughts on the recount? Look, Trump knows he can't reverse the outcome to this race. This is an organizing tactic to attempt to energize Republican voters for the January runoff. Okay, that's what this is about. This is about their disinformation campaign as a political strategy. And finally, I want to ask you a question that we have been asking many progressive Democrats over the last week or so. Joe Biden is a moderate Democrat after he won the Democratic primary progressives did line up behind him. But there are some real differences in policy between what Joe Biden wants and what progressives want to see in this country. How do you feel about Joe Biden right now being the head of the Democratic Party or progressives going to need to push him? Joe Biden, just one Georgia and Joe Biden is about to have two important colleagues in the U. S senate with him, Jon Ossoff's and Raphael Warnock. And so look to them and their message here. They are out there talking about health care. We're talking about the fact that it is a human tragedy that we're having hospitals close and on the brink of closure in Georgia. This is about people's lives and on Lee Joe Biden with the Democratic Senate have any hope of getting something done for the American people on covert and the economy.

"It's the same case we act as if it's a shocking thing. It's not at all this is every single person if they were honest, that was on that stage last week will be saying the same crap. Jemele Hill is saying That's why she's valuable because she just says the quiet thing. She's saying it all. They don't want you to believe it. They're all because Joe Biden will implement all of this crap that they want to whoever is running Joe Biden. Joe Biden is the perfect vessel, though, to get the stuff in because no one he seems like he's this old fuddy duddy that's going to fall over, maybe sleep through most of the presidency. So while he's not going to do anything, you think they're not going to try to get all these policies passed him or say it was the fundamental transport transformation. This is it If we if we if we lose the presidency, then they finished, they finish the job. They probably 100% believe that door the Senate to mean Can you imagine this? Let's just say God forbid, Joe Biden is the United States. But he's the next president of states with the Democratic Senate. Will can you imagine? Because they will get rid of that filibuster in 10 seconds. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Would have any problem doing it like the Republicans wring their hands, and it's a very fair should we do that? We're the majority. We shouldn't run over the top of the minority. They won't have any compunction about it. They'll do it instantly. They've someone asked Chris Coons, the Democrat that came after Biden in the Senate, and they said, Well, you gotta get rid of that filibuster. Wei don't see any reason for that. But of course, obviously, if we can't make progress on these issues, something I'm not going to sit here or not if we have the presidency in the Senate, But we're gonna have progress, so I mean, the Republicans could work with us. But we need to have progress. So are you saying that the same thing that Aunt Yvonne says Look, you can come with us. You just better do exactly what we say. Exactly right. And you know they they said they followed up. They were so are you saying you get really forward of the filibuster? What I'm saying Quite clearly is I will not go through four years of of no progress on these issues. The answer's yes. Yes. Get rid of they will get rid of it in seconds. So that is the same kind of answer they give on Antifa. Are you a supporter of? And will you condemn? I'll condemn violence. No, no, I got that. Will you condemn? Deva? Antifa? Will you condemn them? I've already spoken out on this issue. When? Just now I told you I rejected violence..

"One WG y. House Democrats have an ambitious agenda as they take over the majority from infrastructure to health care to investigations of the Trump administration, but their first priority is to end the government shutdown. Joining us now from Rhode Island one of their new leaders, congressman David cellini chair of the House Democratic policy and communications committee. Congressman what's the latest on where negotiations stand are your is your side willing to compromise with the president on the border wall. Or are you in effect demanding his surrender? No. I don't think we're demanding. It's right about what we're demanding. Is that the government be reopened? We passed appropriations bills that were passed unanimously by the Senate. There was supported by the Republicans. There was an agreement on those bills. The president at the last moment changed his mind and that deal fell apart. So we were trying to isolate the disagreement so we re passed again, the Senate approved version that there was the Republican path forward that passed the house in a bipartisan way with Republicans and Democrats we send that to the Senate what we're saying is open up. The government will have a short term extension for the department of homeland security. So we can resolve this disagreement, but we need to reopen the government and the president has really held these other. Let me just interrupt for a second because because speaker Pelosi and Democratic Senate leader Schumer have been hitting it this on Friday after the meeting is it the democratic view now that there could be no negotiations on the border wall at all until the president agrees to reopen. The rest of the government. I think we believe the government must reopen immediately. I mean, it's having real consequences. Not only to the federal workers back to the country in terms of food stamps in terms of a tax refunds in terms of safety at the airports with the TSA. I mean, there are real consequences to prolong shutdown. The president doesn't seem to understand that. But it's really impacting small business it's impacting people's lives. And so what we're saying is open the government. There's agreement bipartisan agreement on funding the balance the government. Let's isolate the disagreement the department of homeland security and continue talking. All right. Let's talk about the merits of a border wall. Here's what speaker new speaker Nancy Pelosi says. Does anybody have any doubt that we're not doing a wall? The wall in.
