Alex Padilla to become California's first Latino senator, replacing Harris
"Going. Secretary Alex Padilla now heads to Washington, D C. To replace Vice President elect Kamila Harris and become California's first Latino senator. Questions still remain over how Padilla will be received in D. C. And for more, we turn now to the KCBS Ring Central news Line and talk with Christopher. Cattle. Lago National political reporter at Political Good to have you with us, Christopher Nice to be here. Thank you. So, how much pressure do you think the governor was under to appoint a Latino to replace Kamila Harris? I think he was under huge pressure. Just generally. He he was replacing a multiracial woman, and Kamila Harris, a black woman. And there was a lot of groups out there who felt that not only should he replace Harris with a woman but a black woman in particular because she was the only black woman in the U. S Senate, and that number will not go from 1 to 0. But there was also tremendous pressure. Even before Harris ran, you'll remember in 20. 15 when she started her campaign to replace Barbara Boxer for the state to elect its first Latino senator, Um, back then, there were calls for folks like former L. A Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to run even the happier for Sarah, who by now nominated to be the Health and human services director to potentially run Kevin De Leone ended up running against Dianne Feinstein and 2018 and lost in the other Senate seat. So there was a lot of competing pressure for Gavin Newsom and what we saw yesterday. Clearly there was no accident in him almost packaging these two Thies two appointments together, which you saw for the U. S. Senate and Alex Padilla and then surely Weber. To replace Padilla as secretary of state, a state wide position. Surely Weber is chair of the Black caucus in the state and also Was a long time professor PhD from San Diego State who's done a lot of focus on police reform another racial justice issues in the state, so You know, do some. I know people talk for weeks and weeks about appointing Padilla. He was He was kind of the obvious pick someone who is allied with new some years ago, but he waited clearly so he could make these two um, appointments in tandem s so that people could see kind of the full context of both of them and not just look at one of the other. What? What about the comments from San Francisco Mayor London Braid. Initially she called this a real blow to the African American community. You think she was angry at video? She angry Governor Newsome. Yeah. Both. I think she speaks for folks both in the state and nationally who Who really did genuinely want to see that seat. Uh um, uh, C representation. Um, of Ah, Black woman like common. Harris continue in that Senate seat. There. Also a lot of people as I mentioned who wanted to see a woman in that seat. Um and I think She? It's complex. She does reflect some of the groups out there some of the people out there even some of the people who are praising kind of the tandem. Nature of these pics were disappointed, maybe not in such sharp terms of London Bridge, But groups and other folks out there were disappointed that Newsome did not appoint a black woman to serve in the Senate. Well, this all got announced and Harris is term expires in two years, and Padilla has already launched a Senate campaign account asking for donations. So it appears that He wants to stick around for a while, and he's already raising money. Yeah, The thing that we know about the Senate races these days and really any races, you have to capitalize on the 1st 2024 hours 48 hours first week when people are paying attention, the senior name in the news These races in California don't typically command a kind of TV time. And so he's trying to get a raise as much money as you can. And in the short period, the short window where folks are really tuning in. And we've seen comments. And I know you didn't mention this but from folks like Ro Khanna Progressive, who was the national co chaired for Bernie Sanders, who are expressing disappointment, not not in, uh in the in Padilla. On the fact that he's a Latino, which they celebrate, but in the fact that they think that his politics or to moderate and that's just that he's got to raise a lot of money because he could he could certainly face eh Progressive challenger in two years in the state, and you know he'll only have two years to really make his mark and get his name out there before before his challenge.

The George Moscone and Harvey Milk Assassinations
"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy the wilson in its november twenty seventh on a stay in nineteen seventy eight san francisco mayor. George mosconi and supervisor harvey milk were assassinated by former supervisor. Dan white white had resigned seventeen days earlier but he had tried to be reinstated as a member of the board of supervisors but while the mayor had initially said that he would be able to return to his job when he made this request. The mayor refused mayor. Mosconi had run on a platform of social progress and inclusion and while in office he hit appointed women and people of color and gay people to government positions white on the other hand had campaigned with the slogan of unites and fight and in one pamphlet he had said quote. I am not going to be forced out of san francisco by splinter groups of radicals social deviants incorrigibles. He had also voted against a gay rights. Ordinance in san francisco. The mayor had seen an opportunity to replace white with somebody who is more in line with his own goals. He had tried to pass a number of reforms before white's resignation and they had consistently failed by one vote so on the day of the murders mayor mosconi was planning to announce white's replacement but on the morning of the twenty seventh white entered the building through a window to bypass metal detectors. He entered moscow office and shot him four times. And then he went into the office of harvey milk in the supervisor's chamber down the hall and shot five times before leaving the building later on. He said that there were others. He had planned to kill it city hall as well. Acting mayor dianne feinstein. Who had been the person to discover harvey. Milk's body made this moment. Quote as president of the board of supervisors. It's my duty to make this announcement. Though th mayor mosconi and supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. The assembled crowd was stunned very vocal and once they were quieted she continued quote. The suspect is supervisor. Dan white whites defense when this came to trial was diminished capacity and that has come into common parlance as the twinkie defense. But that idea is really a myth. There were some mentions of junk foods in one psychiatrist testimony in this trial but it was really about being under huge amount of stress and prone to cycles of depression. So the testimony about junk food. Wasn't that dan white eight a bunch of twinkies and this caused him to commit murder. It was that the junk food based diet was a symptom of his struggling mental health. And that it also exacerbated the existing underlying problems. He was having the twinkie defense. Nickname was spread through news coverage. But doesn't actually describe how junk-food came up in the trial even though he had confessed to the crime and he had reloaded his gun. Before approaching harvey milk then white was found guilty of manslaughter rather than murder. He was sentenced to seven years eight months in prison and would ultimately serve a little more than five years. The verdict led to public outrage including what came to be known as the white knight riot and a candlelight march from san francisco's castro district to city hall california later abolished the diminished capacity. Defense in part because of its successful. Use in dan white's trial. He took his own life after getting out of prison. In nineteen eighty five and a lot of ways. The assassination of harvey milk has overshadowed that of mayor mosconi. Milk was one of the first openly. Gay elected officials in the united states and he was a known public figure and activist in san francisco. How or whether homophobia affected whites in the jury's verdict has been debated in the years since all of this happened and milk himself has become a lot more widely known in the context of the gay rights movement

Senate Republicans appear to congratulate Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C.
"Kamila Harris back of the nation's capital for the first time in her new role yesterday, casting an important vote and accepting congratulations in some cases from Republicans with more on the incoming V P and other news from the nation's capital. I'm joined by Maybe season as delicate terra. It has come to Harris even got a fist bump or two yesterday. Tell us about her day at the Capitol. Got straight. She did get a few fists on one of them from Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham yesterday as they were quizzing the grilling rather, the big tech CEOs of Twitter and Facebook during that Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. She did return to the capital for the first time as vice president elect, and probably the most interesting thing to come out of that with the fact that she received a classified intelligence briefing in her capacity of senator which is interesting because she So far in her capacity as vice president elect has not been able to receive those briefings because the General Services Administration refuses to recognize her and Joe Biden as the president elected by President elect the General Services Administration being the body that kind of overseas the transition, so because of that, she and Joe Biden have not been able to receive that class of those classified intelligence briefings. But she did get a briefing yesterday in her capacity of Senator is does the GS to act on their own earthy at the behest of the president, who has refused to concede or accept the fact that this is a new administration coming in? So they technically act on their own. But there is certainly concerns. There are concerns that there could be you know political influence there and that the G s a is kind of doing that the president's bidding and then until President Trump decides to concede that they won't do it, either, But they do maintain that they are One of their own thing on act independently. I was Senator Chuck Grassley, who has said President elect Biden should be getting those classified intelligence briefings from the Trump administration. We learned yesterday has tested positive for covert 19. That's right. Yes, that's some bad news there. Senator Chuck Grassley, who is the most senior Republican in the Senate. He's just the second oldest senator of the oldest actually being Dianne Feinstein, who's just a few months older, but he is the most senior Republican. He's 87 years old, so high risk demographic there for covert 19, but his office does say he's not experiencing any symptoms. So that's good news. They don't know how he contract ID the virus. The concern is that he was on the floor of the Senate voting on Today, and he was also part of Ah closed door hearing or meeting rather with Republican leadership. People who were in that meeting, though, said that you know, Grassley has been really good about wearing a mask that everybody in that meeting was wearing a mask. But they're not too concerned about having contracting the virus. But he is, you know, the second this week that has announced that he is now isolating. After a possible covert exposure. The first being Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, certainly wish them the best. Thank you so much as always say, and that's a bee season as delicate era in Washington. Come

"Judge Amy Cockney barrettes getting a lot of pointed questions. For members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Let's go live to Capitol Hill, W. GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, fired off several questions on major legal matters, including abortion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided, if I express a view on a precedent, one way or another, whether I say I love it or hate it. It signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case, And in response to questions from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, Barrett made it clear she's had no discussions with the White House about how she might rule in cases involving the affordable care act or the upcoming election. It would be a complete violation of the independence of the judiciary for anyone to put a justice on the court as a means of obtaining a particular result. Republicans have praised Barrett during the hearing, which is now in a brief break, Senator John Cornyn pointed out. She has no notebooks in front of her, except for a small white pad.

"President Trump's nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg went through today day one of confirmation hearings. News nation Washington correspondent Ashley Kits, supporters and opponents of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett demonstrated outside while inside the Supreme Court nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats like Senator Cory Booker painted a dim picture of how barrettes confirmation could impact the nation. States may write laws. They could subject women who have miscarriages. Two investigations to ensure they didn't have abortions. California Senator Dianne Feinstein focused on Barrett's potential role in striking down the affordable care Act. The case that's before the Supreme Court next month, Judge Barat You've been critical of Chief Justice Roberts for his 54 opinion. Upholding the law. Although Democrats say the Supreme Court seat should not be filled this close to an election, Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham says there's no reason to delay She's been a circuit court judge at the seventh Circuit. Since 2017. She was confirmed to that position. To buy parts with about partisan vote. She has heard hundreds of cases in that capacity. For her part, Judge Barrett promises to be impartial. I believe Americans of all backgrounds deserve an independent Supreme Court. That interprets our constitution and laws as they're written. I believe I conserve my country By playing that role.

Opening day of confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett
"The day it is the opening day. Of the confirmation hearings for Amy Cockney Barrett. We took Senator Lindsey Graham's opening statement. He's the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in their role of advice and consent. We now return to Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, continuing with her statement, interpret law. Is central. I isn't centralized in one person or one branch of government. That's much. That's not a mistake. You all know, all right, Chuck Grassley's now up my feet is delayed. We had a live news feed, and then we've got a delayed feet. I was thinking that each member but only the ranking member and the chairman would speak. And then Amy Cockney Barrett would speak. Apparently they're going to go through will monitor it going to go through all the members first, which there's quite a few members on the committee when it's Kamala Harris is turn. We will. Dip back in and see what tone she's going to take. But the rest of them will see how it goes. They're all sitting there in the room. Most of them are sitting there in the room, so We'll see how it goes. It's a combination of in person and remote full of members of the committee have tempted positive for covert 19. So they II see, though Mike Leigh is sitting there. He was one of those members. He's probably been cleared, though, so I want to hear Kamala Harris and I want to hear, Of course, KONI barrettes opening statement, which I think is important to everybody. But as we're waiting for this to start, I want to play a couple of clips for you. Let's get cut one ready here just because this site issue of court packing It is. The concept of court packing is very specific and has been What it is. Forever packing the court's meaning, expanding the size of the court, the number of people on the Supreme Court because you're not happy with the makeup of it or the perceived makeup of it. Nobody really knows how these people will vote on anything until the case is decided. But That's what court packing means. Joe Biden and the Democrats are changing that very definition. Over the weekend. Joe has been asked this a lot, and if you notice he's not really pressed on it. Each reporter kind of has to go in and check that box. But they don't really hammer him down on that and refused to ask anything else and really, really keep going back at him, as they would if he were a Republican. And over the weekend, he said something very disturbing. To be honest with you, and it became the new talking point. The court is being packed now. I already said last week that the American public doesn't deserve to know what he would do on the issue. Right now. They don't deserve to know elect him and you'll find out I'll tell you what I'm going to do on this. After the election. But listen to Joe Biden set the tone and set the terms for what constitutes court packing, redefining the term right before your very ears cut one. Go ahead what they're going to focus on what's happening right now, In fact, now by the Republican after the boat has already begun. His cord is being packed. Now there's court is being packed. Now The court is not being packed. Now there is a vacancy on the court, and this became the mantra for the left. Over the weekend, and it was from journalists to elected Democrats and every other flavor of Democrats. In between. They ran with this, of course, Donald Republicans are packing the court. Republicans have not expanded the number of federal judges whatsoever. The Republicans have filled vacancies. We'll get into this more later on in the program, but It's important to note that they complained 200 nominees have been pushed through the Senate. Only because Democrats change the rules in 2013 because they wanted to fill those vacancies. They were warned. Don't get rid of the filibuster. You'll regret it sooner rather than later. The next year, they lost the Senate. So they regretted it much, much sooner. This is them, taking their own medicine and not liking it very much. It's their own damn fault will be back after news.
Comey testifies before Senate committee on Russia probe
"Judiciary Committee is grilling former FBI director James Comey over the Russia investigation. Comey appeared before the committee today, and Chairman Lindsey Graham addressed the FISA application against Trump Campaign member Carter Page and Gram described the application against pages a nerve ING and he warned his Democratic colleagues that it could happen to them, Senator Dianne Feinstein said President Trump and those supporting him of trying to change the narrative about the probe ever since it wrapped up in the
"dianne feinstein" Discussed on Vox's The Weeds
"A lesson Democrats have needed. To learn I think you know when we talk about lessons learned here I think it's useful to sort of put a pin in a distinction here because one thing about the Senate is it's unusual rules of parliamentary procedure and another thing about the Senate is unusual apportionment and these are distinct attributes of the United States Senate right around the world. Typically, a legislature operates under a one person one vote world I I don't WanNa say it's unheard of add to have a disproportionate upper house of legislature. But another thing you see in comparative studies that normally. Countries that have a non-proportionate. Countries like Australia countries like Switzerland, the upper house's less powerful than the lower house. But in America, the Senate is more powerful than the house because of the advisor could set will s- right if you had to pick only one body to control, you would want the Senate and the Senate is also more disproportionate than the Australian Senate or the German Africa Scott Bundesrat I think. So it's it's a very unusual. In terms of its apportionment and power. Then separately, it has this a goofball at procedural dorms that you were talking about with the filibuster and I think it's I think it's useful in this regard to take a trip down down memory lane you always like to talk about the Medicare vote count which was in an era of strong filibusters but the the Johnson Administration you know they just in their internal documents. They were counting to fifty right like the view you I'm going to tell the story. It is my favorite story. Yeah. So it's not a lynching bell. So yeah. So this is actually and I I WANNA give I WANNA give credit here's David. Berkman a political scientists at Berkeley who actually turned me found this document sent it to me way back in my Washington Post days, but there is this amazing memo that Mike Mattos, who is the Senate liaisons of the person who runs Senate relations for? President. Lyndon Johnson. So Lyndon Johnson like knows the Senate pretty well gets good. GotTa run it from Mike Manado sends on his boss Lyndon Johnson a note after the nineteen, sixty four elections and he says that if all the senators who won and lost our president accounted for in the new Senate, then Medicare will pass fifty five to forty five. So they are not even they do not even think that they need to plan for the possibility of a filibuster as you sort of gestured to their matt in this period. The only thing that gets routinely filibustered our civil rights laws, I? mean. This is why a lot of people call the filibuster Jim Crow relic true filibuster was invented around Jim Crow. But what is true is at the usage, the filibuster to impose a supermajority requirement on bills passing forward. So of what what Adam Gentlemen would. Would argue in in his book which is coming out soon, I'm called kill switch and his very good hugh-paul sort of like the rule twenty, two filibuster that was pioneered by the southern block in the in the Mid Twentieth Century but he's really only used civil rights bills and then later got picked up as party polarization accelerated by by parties. But Medicare they didn't think Medicare, would get filibustered I mean and back then you would need a two-thirds two thirds vote to break a filibuster so they. Can You? Can you imagine Medicare, it's wild. It's a totally wild. It's a totally wild thing to really sit in and try to understand how differently American politics worked. You know just a couple of decades ago and then something that that I really think people should appreciate If they want to understand you know similar what you're talking about about Joe Biden's mentality right and his You know his thinking Democrats thinking about this is one of the very first. Stories that I covered in DC had to do with the Medicare reform that happened during George W. Bush's administration and this was a very convoluted legislative saga. But the upshot of it was was that one version of Medicare prescription drug benefit passed the house and another version passed the Senate the one that passed the senate had big bipartisan majority behind it. You know classic Senate bipartisanship filibuster leading to compromise whatever, and then they went to a conference committee which. You may remember from the schoolhouse rock video and how a bill becomes a law, but actually has not been used in a long time So it's a conference committee and everybody is sort of pre theoretical understanding going into it was that the conference committee process was going to have to be bipartisan because the Senate bill was bipartisan and House Concert right-wing Congressional people didn't like this whole idea anyway So the final legislation that emerged was. Expected to look more like the Senate bill, the bipartisan belt in the house belt but it didn't he instead the conference committee came out with something that was quite close to the Republicans bill in the House and Max Baucus Zell Miller though defected and they supported this in conference committee and it wound up coming to the floor of the Senate and it passed there was something like fifty four votes in some people thought that Democrats should Philip. Right, 'cause they didn't have sixty votes for There were calls for Filibuster we didn't have twitter at the time, but if twitter had existed, left-wing twitter would have been talking about this but Democrats didn't filibuster it and what they said at the time was like, well, you can't filibuster conference report and You I was in the office and you know so that's interesting. It's not true though that like you can't Filibuster a conference committee report, there's a rule that says that it was just the. Over time we were no longer in that like nineteen sixty understanding of the Senate rules but as of two thousand and four, which was not that long ago right the understanding was you couldn't do a filibuster that way and that bog as the story of the store the Senate in recent decades is simply mistaking word can't for the word didn't exactly. And so the critical thing I think to understand about, Joe? Biden and a lot of democratic senators is that they were they in two thousand four you know what I mean like it. It feels like a lifetime ago if you're young person like two thousand four with some very long time ago. But just in political terms, it seems like a whole other. But. So many of our people in politics still come from that era right and to a lot of them that was a better era and like it's not that far gone in the past and so their instinct when anything happens like in two thousand, seven Democrats have the majority in the House and the Senate, and their idea is that they are going to pass a bunch of popular bills and either Bush will have to sign them or have to veto them and look bad. But Senate, Republicans just filibuster absolutely everything and so Democrats were like not happy about that. But there thought at the time was like we need to go back. We need to go back to the old ways and what you're saying is that it's only now because of the hardball really around A. The Supreme Court seeds that Senate Democrats are giving up on the idea of of going back to a set of norms that you know were abandoned. Really, quite recently, and it Senate Democrats themselves I mean if you if you ask a Democrat, like what happened in the judicial wars, they will say that this garland thing was the most outrageous thing. They ever saw Republicans. You know they talk about Bork I think pretty implausibly but less implausibly they say that shortly after that Medicare prescription drug incident I was talking about Democrats started filibustering some of George W Bush's circuit court appointees and traditionally. Filibuster used for that right and Democrats will say, will the reason they started doing? That is Republicans changed the Blue Slip, world which sort of let home state senators object to be. An eight at the time. This was seen as a real. Norm violation by by Democrats what caused mark touching it to coin the phrase constitutional hard ball because everybody agreed that like you were allowed to do that it just you know was one of those things that just wasn't done but then Democrats started doing it but they had a even as Democrats did that they sort of their goal was to step back from from the brink and and now you're saying that they're ready to give up on that. Yeah. Let's take a break and then I wanna come back and talk about the very particular dynamics of Supreme Court nominations in this.

House, Senate pass bills to study the number of cancers striking military pilots
"PASSES BILLS TO STUDY MILITARY PILOT CANCERS FROM mcclatchy Washington bureau little bit late on that. I did I was GONNA say anything but okay. The Department of Defense would be required to identify how many of the current or former aviators have been diagnosed with cancer in in bills passed by the House and Senate this week a study long sought by military pilots who have questioned why there are so many serious illnesses in their community. The legislation was included in both chambers versions of the seven hundred and forty billion fiscal year twenty, twenty, one national defense authorization. Act following a series of stories by mcclatchy on the alarming clusters of cancer among current or former military aviators. I'm one of those including four commanding officers at a Premier Navy weapons testing base in California who have died of cancer since two thousand fifteen. Oh let me clarify I'm not one of those that has been diagnosed with cancer but I am a former military aviator. Two versions of the twenty one, twenty, one spending bill will now go to house and Senate negotiators to iron out differences before being sent to President Donald Trump to be signed into law. Betty semen the wife of one of the four commanding officers at Naval Air Weapons Station China. Lake. died of cancer. Welcome to the important milestone. She says since loving since losing I'm sure she loved him too since losing my husband I have met too many other families on the same unwanted journey. We all share a universal prayer that no other family will have to go through a similar loss today brings us one step closer to that realization Miss Seaman said in an e mail to mcclatchy but that's a great name. Her husband's name was a commander Semen S. e. a. m. a. n., and he is a naval officer. Wow that was he was in the if he was in Canada heath now be a sailor. So his last name. Is they're getting rid, of semen. Because of the obvious connotations. Changing the position to say okay. Let's see. Senator Dianne Feinstein from California introduced the military aviators. Cancer Incidence Study Act after mcclatchy reported that military aviators may be at a higher risk of developing certain cancers. Let's see. There was a little bit of information here. The database would include every service member since nineteen sixty one who served in an aviator role. The legislation defines aviators, members of the aircrew such as pilots and Napa who they included navigators in their two. Members of the grand create usually asleep on me. I did that on purpose because we have several navigators listen to the show. Let's see. WHO SHOULD WE? I'm offended at airline pilot guy dot com has the email address. And members of the ground crew who worked on the aircraft pilots who have been lobbying for the legislation wanted to ensure that ground crew such as enlisted personnel who worked to launch jets aircraft carriers were included. Because, they were exposed to many of the same radar emissions or fuels. The bill requires a database to be completed within a year. So I guess they're assuming that. The radar emissions and fuel and the jets have something to do with this. With these cancers. Anyway. So that's good. That they're doing this and I guess that. I will be contacted at some point. To probably. Yeah to fill out some kind of survey regarding my health,

I hope you'll stick with me right now because we're going to do what we call it, deep dive. That means not bounce around like a ping pong ball from story to story, but we're going to do a deep dive and something that's not really in the news right now. And so let us pretend that I am the New York Times, it's painful, it's painful, but let us pretend. So here's my headline. Is Dianne Feinstein a spy for red China. I repeat just a question. His Dianne Feinstein a spy for red China. And there was a great piece several months ago by Ben winegarden at a great website called the federals. And the headline is and we've talked about Feinstein and her husband, Richard bloom over the years and their relationships with the Chinese government, and how they've made a hell of a lot of money, and how believe that's affect her policies in some ways. But the question is should there. Be a special counsel investigating her. Shouldn't the news media be focused on her? Weingarten writes in a very long piece, and I can't read all of it. I sometimes say that in my last life. Maybe I was Chinese Betsy quote from Diane Franken Feinstein. As media intelligence agencies and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at a PECS. He story with big national security implications involving a high ranking Senator with access to America's most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight, just like Ted Kennedy was. The story involves China and the senior US Senator from California. And former chair of the Senate select committee on intelligence democrat Dianne Feinstein. It was buried eight paragraphs underway. Recent political expose on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley as a passing example, political espionage quote from politico. Former intelligence officials say Chinese intelligence once recruited a staff member at a California office of you Senator Dianne Feinstein and the source reported back to China about local politics. He spokesperson for Feinstein said. The office doesn't comment on personnel matters are investigations, but noted that no Feinstein staffer in California's ever been excuse me has never had a security clearance, later comes additional detail. According to four former Intel officials in the two thousands, a staffer and Senator Dianne Feinstein San Francisco field office was reporting back to the m s s China's ministry of state security, it's intelligence and security apparatus now while this person who. Who is a liaison to the local Chinese community was fired charges were never filed against him. One. Former official reason that this was because the staffer was providing political intelligence and not classified information making prosecution far more difficult. This suspected informant was run by officials based at China's San Francisco consulate said, another former intelligence official despise handler, probably got an an award back to China for his work noted this former official dryly so this anecdote provides significantly more questions and answers for starters. Who was the spy for how long was the spy under surveillance. What information about local politics with the spy passing back to China? Just how close was despite the Senator did law enforcement officials sweep vehicles and other areas for life listening devices. Was there an intelligent excuse me in an investigation into whether others in the senators circle may have been coordinating with Beijing did the Senator expose yourself to potential blackmail or the public the dangerous through leakage of sensitive highly classified information is firing really the proper punishment for providing political intelligence to farm power. Here's my question. Was she removed from the Senate intelligence committee know, why she investigated by any Senate committee? No with a Senate committee is under the control of the Republicans. Yes. So why didn't they? Lindsay. We now know only the most basic of additional details about what occurred in Feinstein's office five years ago, the FBI approach the Senator to a prize or that a San Francisco Bay staffer was being investigated under suspicion of spying for China. According to the San Francisco Chronicle Feinstein's hometown paper, this staffer would work with Feinstein for almost twenty years. Drove around in San Francisco and served as gopher inner San Francisco office liaison to the Asian American community, even tending Chinese consulate functions for the Senator. And it goes on. But there's better and more. For the last forty years. No politician in America has arguably maintained a deeper more longstanding and friendlier relationship with red China at the highest levels of its ruling communist party and Feinstein dates back to the opening of US China diplomatic relations in nineteen seventy nine. Shortly thereafter Feinstein, then mayor of San Francisco established a sister city relationship with Shanghai, one of the earliest and most robust such relationships in US China history. So now after Feinstein led a mayoral delegation to China joined by your husband, investor, Richard bloom, a trip they took together many times over the ensuing years is the relationship between both Feinstein's and China grew. During the nineteen eighties. As mayor of San Francisco Feinstein developed, a close friendship with Shanghai mayor Zhang's them in this substantially enhanced Feinstein's foreign policy profile and created an important linkage to the US government for China's communist party, the P. And just as Feinstein rose trae prominent position in foreign affairs and national security in the Senate, I on the foreign relations committee, and lighters. Chairman of the Senate select committee on intelligence Jiang, rose, the president of the people's public Republican trainer the PR PRC. Now, there's Jiang's leadership. The PSE initiated a brutal crackdown against practitioners of fallen gun including mass imprisonments, beatings, torture, rape, Oregon, harvesting and murder and engaging in alleged human rights atrocities against thebenz Feinstein, never renounced her friendship was Jiang in spite of these acts. Feinstein and Jiang reportedly visited each other regular in the nineteen eighty s Zhang wants spending thanksgiving in San Francisco with Feinstein and her husband Jiang supported dance and Dan supposedly danced with Feinstein during one such visit would surely must have been a propaganda coup for the CPAP. I'll let Ted Kennedy and the Soviets. In one thousand nine hundred eighty six Feinstein and Zhang designated several corporate entities for fostering, commercial relations, one name the Shanghai Pacific partners Feinstein's husband served as director his financial position was relatively small less than half a million dollars on one project. The only such position in China. The Feinstein family help when Feinstein entered the Senate in one thousand nine hundred to that project, however, which blooms firm participated in along with the PR state run Shanghai investment Trust Corporation was one of the first joined veterans between San Francisco and Chinese investors reportedly quote by Chinese officials as a testament to the friendly business ties between Shanghai and San Francisco that Feinstein at initiated, unquote. Subsequently belongs investments in the middle kingdom. China mushroomed MA nineteen Ninety-three Feinstein expressed their long strong support on the Senate floor for continued trading with China contemporaneous. Her husband was seeking to raise up to one hundred and fifty million from investors, including himself for a variety of Chinese enterprises. And August nineteen Ninety-three Feinstein in her husband visited Beijing for extensive meetings with Chinese leaders as president Jiang's at his invitation. And as the LA times reported in nineteen Ninety-four expose on Feinstein's husband's business ties in the potential conflict of interest. They presented quote such encounters are finally remembered when deals are clinch back in China, according to American experts in Chinese business practices. They said that Feinstein's consistent support for China's interests cannot help benefit her husband's efforts to earn profits. There. Historical record suggests. These American experts were right bloom successfully raised one hundred and sixty million for the aforementioned Asia fund under his Newbridge capital investment company cleaning investing one to two million himself the fund invested in several state-owned. Chinese government linked businesses. Blooms firms largest holding at the time his China. Investments began to draw scrutiny in one thousand nine hundred seven was at stake in Northwest Airlines. Then estimated three hundred million dollar position was poised significantly. Appreciate in value is northwest just happened to be the sole airline operator providing nonstop service from the United States to any city in China. When questioned on his China. Investments bloom pledged to donate future profits from the holdings to his nonprofit foundation to help Tibetan refugees thereby quote, removing any perception that I in any way, shape or form benefit from an info or influence. My wife's position on China's a US Senator. But these conflict of interest issues persisted. In January nineteen ninety-five. Feinstein was appointed to the Senate Foreign Relations committee, subsequently she made several visits to China. Of course, why not? Let's see here. And company by her husband where she met with senior government officials reading this off the computer I have to move the screen during these trips. The couple was wined and dined one such visit in January ninety six Feinstein and bloom enjoyed a meal of president Jean. In of. The exclusive leadership compound for China's communist party where according to Feinstein. They ate Mao Tse tongues residents in the room where he died now. That's kinda sick right there, isn't it. Mr producer. Can I eat in the residence and the room where where Mao died? Please pass the shrimp. Feinstein kept up her dog at support for increased trade with China. In may nineteen Ninety-six. She pendant aditorial in the Los Angeles time calling the United States on it to grant most favored nation status. To China on a permanent basis get past the annual dance that is proving to be extraordinarily divisive. And not at all helpful toward reaching the off stated goal improvement in human rights, while Feinstein maintained her pro China positions in may nineteen Ninety-seven. The Senator revealed yet be I had warned her Chinese government might seek to funnel illegal contributions to recant pain. She was one of only six members of congress to receive such a warning is the New York Times noted at the time Feinstein had returned twelve thousand dollars in nineteen Ninety-four contributions from people with connections to the Lippo Bank. An arm of a multibillion dollar conglomerate owned by the Riady family with investments and operations throughout Asia. Employed a senior American executive name. John wong? You may. Remember this at the time Feinstein disclosed returning the Lippo tie contributions. But Hong was under Justice department investigation. And it goes on. You want to hear more this, Mr. producer? How about you America? I did the FOX show the professor Kengo and you saw real hard documentary evidence. Of Ted Kennedy's conspiracy with the KGB and Kremlin to try and defeat Ronald Reagan and his reelection. This is real hard evidence of the Feinstein's and their conduct with China. Why am I doing this Ellie to show you that the meteor corrupt that this entire dish? We found attached look at this. We found an Email. It shows nothing. Is a fraud. I'll be right.

But certainly on immigration. You know, there was some he talked about the dreamers. But then in dish it on the wall or the stupid wall is daily own call. Yes. All right. So it looks like based on what you have said six more years of Dianne Feinstein in the Senate. Do you think there's any way that we know obviously, it's we don't know what the turnout's gonna be here. But you know, polls are saying that she is a strong lead going into this all the money in the world. He does not what do you? What do you think? I over. I do think it's game over I think the opening for for daily own really came with the cavenaugh hearings with not only the left was upset at at Feinstein. The right was upset at Feinstein. He could have jumped on that issue, although he had his own pill. These to try to Gordon, I think if you jumped on that more aggressively that might have, you know, maybe some Republicans maybe not paying attention to his platform, which is well, actually, well well to the left of Feinstein might have rebuild, but. I just don't see it. I don't see the lane victory for him at this point. Right. And one thing speaking of Republicans, you know, you saw a one of our favorite San Francisco Republicans, actually, Oakland, Republican, Sean Walsh, former advisor to former Governor Pete Wilson in the audience, and you know, what what what do Republicans do in this race? The polls say that fifty two percent of Republicans and twenty six percent of independence, many of them. Obviously probably former Republicans don't plan to even vote in this race. What did they see anything here today? Well, it the the one thing they might have seen maybe being a little afraid of Kevin daily own. Now seeing that he is fairly far left a of Dianne Feinstein. I can't imagine that he's going to get many Republican votes. She will get some because first of all lot of Republicans have voted for in the past. And one thing we know in politics is. The best predictor of how you're going to vote in the next elections. How you voted in the last election? What you vote for somebody? You're more prone to vote for them in the future. But I think Republicans are shutout and frustrated in this US Senate it's going to be interesting with what we have this year. If there's going to be a renewed push to maybe get rid of the top two because I know neither party particularly likes hate. It hate they hate the both parties hit the top two. I like the top too. I do too I do too. And and when the great independent hope in this raises insurance Commissioner candidate, Steve poisoner. He's running independent and made it into the November election, the has cracked up what Twenty-three newspaper endorsements it sits he's been very, you know, I talked to that camp on the other day.

"A very long trying day were a number of Californians, notably Christine Bazi Ford who accuses supreme court nominee Brett Cavanaugh of sexually assaulting her back in high school. She's from the bay area. She is an of course, California's two US senators Dianne Feinstein, Kamala, Harris, both members of the Senate Judiciary committee, and you know, I I think we saw we've talked about this before on the show the very different styles of these two women Dianne Feinstein is the ranking member she is a lot about decorum. She is not the prosecutor the Kamla harasses. And I think we saw those differences to me totally did. And I think I was struck and we talked with the newsroom was just basically stopped and was watching this hearing this afternoon, and I was struck by how many on flattering references. There were two Dianne Feinstein mostly from Republican member ranking them key member didn't do this. You didn't do this. She didn't know why did she hold this letter? And I didn't feel the Senator Feinstein was not her finest moment, she did not really defend herself. In fact, we got a statement from. Her after the hearing saying much, stronger, a stronger statement. But it really I think did leave you wondering why she didn't say some of those things during the hearing anything seem to be a part of the Republican strategy to sort of focus on the process here instead of on the allegations this idea that and this was a push back to Democrats who were very focused on this question of why there hasn't been an FBI investigation. I wanna play you to back to back cuts of our senators from California asking about this FBI investigation story, and you can just hear their different styles. If you're very confident of your position, and you appear to be why aren't you also asking the FBI to investigate these claims center. I'll do whatever the committee wants I wanted a hearing the day after the allegation came up. I wanted to be here that day instead ten days past were all this nonsense is coming out. In gangs. I'm on boats in Rhode Island. Colorado. Sighted all over the place, and these things are printed and run breathlessly by cable news. I wanted to hearing the next day. My family's been destroyed by this Senator stride and. You know, whatever the committee decides all wins. I'm all in a media. Are you willing to ask the White House to authorize? The FBI to investigate the claims that have been made against you. Well, I'll do whatever the committee wants, of course. And I've heard you say that a witness. I've not heard you answer very specific question that's been asked. Which is are you willing to ask the White House to conduct an investigation by the FBI to get to whatever you believe is the bottom of the allegations that have been levied against you. The FBI would gather witness statements. It's. I don't wanna debate with you how they do their business. I'm just asking are you willing to ask the White House to conduct such an investigation because as you are aware the FBI did conduct a background investigation into you see before we were aware of these most recent allegations. So are you willing to ask the White House to do that and say, yes or no? And then we can move on. But six background investigations over twenty six years as it relates to the recent allegations. Are you willing to have them do the witness testimonies before you know, witness who was there supports that? I was there. I'm going to take that as a known we can move on. And so you can just hear the style there. And I mean, I think it's important to note the reason that it was important for them to move him along with that they only had five minutes. Exactly. And I think that cavenaugh and others who testified before congress. They know that they can run out the clock if they can just extend their answers and comments filibuster. Exactly and Comal Harris. Called him on that and managed to get another few questions in but still five minutes not very long now. And we're going to hear a lot more. We have a great stellar panel here to analyze it quickly though. I Scott nine did speak to former California Senator Barbara Boxer a bit earlier today. We wanted to get her reaction having been in congress for two decades and running in the year of the woman after the Anita hill. Exactly. So here's our interview with Barbara Boxer. Senator Barbara Boxer. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me on. So I guess broadly. I'd like to just start and ask what's your general reaction to what happened today in Washington? And what happened in this hearing first of all it was an exhausting day for. I think all of those who watch this what stands out is not just that. He was rude to the democratic Senator that's bad enough. But his opening statement, he was filled with anger screaming and yelling. And I heard one female attorney say my God, man. That was a woman they would have dragged her out of there on the other hand, you talk about judge Kavanagh's anger Clarence Thomas was quite angry in nineteen Ninety-one. As you recall. I'm sure he called it. A high tech lynching he was very angry, and he got confirmed and got the votes of several Democrats. Well, let me just say I think you're right to bring that up because I said on television just a few minutes ago that I felt that Justice judge Cavanaugh was like Clarence Thomas with crying. I mean, it's just very strange, but look at twenty seven years since then for goodness sakes. We have come a long way. So I don't know what else to tell you, you know, an angry man he was attacking at that time need help what they're doing. Now is not attacking her just saying she's mixed up in it was mistaken identity. You know, they're not going after her that much. They learn it twenty seven years Republicans couldn't find one woman to put on the judiciary committee. So what I say to you is. Yeah. Twenty seven years ago. This kind of a charge was. West considered just a horrible thing that that Anita hill did. But now twenty two years twenty seven years later with the me too movement, one can only hope that it would be taken much more seriously, and that there is no place for anger here. So you've spent time on committee is questioning witnesses. I'm curious what you thought about your former colleague Senator Dianne Feinstein's performance today. There was a lot of attacks on her from Republicans about the timing of when this nation was brought forward. Would you have done things differently? Or do you think that she handled herself? Well. Well, first of all you have to understand that while I was committee chairman and the ranking member it wasn't on the judiciary committee. I think Diane handle herself with poised and calm. She stated the truce which was that. When Dr came forward, Dr Ford begged for anonymity. She gave her that. It wasn't until this was all week and go to be oppressed story, the doctor forge decided to go public. Senator Feinstein told the truth about that. And the truth is. And I served the Senate and the house between the two for thirty four years. The bottom line is if your constituents. For anonymity. Battle. You need to do that. You don't wanna politicized? The pain of a constituent, he shouldn't you shouldn't ever do that. And if you do it, you shouldn't be in public life. One. Last question, you were swept into office in the year of the woman following those Anita hill Clarence Thomas hearings. What impact do you think this is going to have on the electorate? Well, I predict we're going to see a pink wage, I think we're going to see many many women, and we know that over two hundred women are running for the house. So I do expect if you if you just put together, you know, this president who. Women attacked women doesn't care about women. You look at the women's March, which was the largest March in history. And you look at what is happening here. And the fact that Republicans died of the judiciary committee didn't even have one woman. What does that tell you? It tells you we need women. It just says that was the message when I ran and I wanted to be totally honest without the need to hell, I would never have gotten elected. It was her courage to come forward with this painful story, just as Dr four did that had residents with women and men who care about women. And I think we're going to see the same thing here with guardless of what happened with judge capital. All right Senator Barbara Boxer. Thank you so much. Thank you. All right. That was Senator Barbara Boxer giving her take we're going to take a short break. You're listening to political breakdown from public radio. Coming up on.

"Will say we do what Jeff said that would end the process dispute at least a few of them. I don't expect him to vote for the guy. But if we asked the FBI look at what's in front of us. No later than a week no longer than a week, and they would say that would be a better process that would be progress in just trying to try and his best break together. And vote the best way he knows how okay. Yeah. So this is all gonna is all going to go great. I definitely trust the Democrats. You know, why trust the Democrats because they've been trustworthy throughout this entire process? They've just been magnificent magnificently, trustworthy, like just this morning, Dianne Feinstein who leverage these charges against Brad Kavanagh in the first place in the most dishonest possible way, he hit all the information shouldn't ask many questions about h wait until he was basically confirmed, and then she dumped in on him today, and the judiciary committee. She said, you know, the problem with Brad Kavanagh, he went on the attack. Okay. Turns out after you after you spew. Verbal diarrhea OnDemand for weeks at a time. He might be slightly miffed. But according to Senator Feinstein, he didn't show the proper level of respect to these senators. First of all, I agree. He didn't share the proper proper level of respect to the senators if he had he would have been flinging vomited them, that's the proper level of respect that they deserve. Heavy senators are a joke. This body is a joke. The Babylon has has a headline today saying Senate replaced with roomful of monkeys flinging feces at one another that would be a significant upgrade, a significant upgrade to the Senate Judiciary committee, particularly the democratic side. Here's Diane Feinstein. You know, the most honorable woman in politics somebody who I definitely trust will abide by the findings of an FBI investigation. Saying that the problem with Brett is he's just angry. He's just too angry as I said to my podcast this morning. This is the equivalent of when you were a seven year old, and you had a four year old brother, and you take his hand and smacked him in the head with it. And then you would say you're hitting yourself. You're hitting yourself. You're hitting yourself as a Dianne Feinstein. Did she she slams cavenaugh with a bunch of rape accusations. And then when he gets matched they made you mad. You mad, bro. Here's Diane Feinstein. She lifeless eyes. Candidly in the twenty five years on this committee. I have never seen a nominee for any position behave in that manner. Judge are used as much political rhetoric as my Republican colleagues, and what's more. He went on the attack he yelled at Democrats for having the temerity to express our frustration for not having access to over ninety percent of his record and said that some democratic members were quote, an embarrassment. Well, I mean that was an understatement. All of the democratic members aren't embarrassment with maybe the exception of Amy club char- who seemed like the only one who could keep yourself under control yesterday Dianne Feinstein is the world's largest embarrassment. She's a black hole embarrassment. She she's she's basically, she she is she's sucking in all other embarrassments and condensing it into pinpoints of matter. That's how much of an embarrassment Dianne Feinstein is. I love this. He was mean to me. So this is the case against cavenaugh moved from he raped the girl too. He was means Dianne Feinstein. I definitely trust. The folks I know that Dianne Feinstein is a serious person who truly deserves the respect of somebody like an eminent judge Brett cabinet. You know, who I know she deserves respect because she would never, you know, bring like a famous actress for no reason into a hearing room. She would never do something like Delic. Why would she do that serious person? She wouldn't bring like an actress was last relevant when she did a show in the mid two thousand called charm into a room for no reason Dianne Feinstein. No, she's a serious humid brick cabinet has to respect her. She brought listen Milano into the room for no reason because Dianne Feinstein is the worst the worst and then enlisted Milano just stare daggers. Brad Kavanagh the entire time like she sat behind him in the shot. So that you could work on her acting skills, which sadly have not improved much since her days in charmed, and she's still just like there are headlines about how she was staring daggers at Brookhaven now mainly she of looks like she's spacing out. Here. So that's her staring daggers. I can't imagine why her acting career kind of faded. Just just amazing stuff. But listen, this isn't just mock Dianne Feinstein far from it. It's horrible human being. I don't mean it's Macher because that'd be a wild understatement. It's my intent she's a bad person. Okay. And what you've been doing over the past several weeks. Even if you believe Dr for especially if you believe Dr Ford has been disgraced doctor Ford forget about cavenaugh, what does Astor all the way through. I'll show you. Why also I don't really believe that these Democrats are going to be acting in good faith on all of this injustice. Second, but first, let's talk about your shaving habits. So you need to go home right now, and you need to shave and take a nice, shower and just relax. You know, listen to a little Brahms and get out of the political fight for a little while.

And we're going to hear a lot more. We have a great stellar panel here to analyze it quickly though. I Scott nine did speak to former California Senator Barbara Boxer a bit earlier today. We wanted to get her reaction having been in congress for two decades and running in the year of the woman after the Anita hill. Exactly. So here's our interview with Barbara Boxer. Senator Barbara Boxer. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me on. So I guess broadly. I'd like to just start and ask what's your general reaction to what happened today in Washington? And what happened in this hearing first of all it was an exhausting day for. I think all of us who watch this. What stands out is not just that. He was rude to the democratic Senator that's bad enough. But his opening statement, he was filled with anger screaming. And yelling. And I heard one female attorney say my God, imagine if that was a woman they would have dragged her out of there on the other hand, you talk about judge Kavanagh's anger Clarence Thomas was quite angry in one thousand nine hundred ninety one as you recall. I'm sure he called it. A high tech lynching he was very angry, and he got confirmed and got the votes of several Democrats. Well, let me just say I think you're right to bring that up because I said on television just a few minutes ago that I felt that Justice. Cavanaugh was like Clarence Thomas with crying. I mean, it just very, thanks. But it's twenty seven years since then for goodness sake. We have come a long way. I don't know. What else to tell you, you know, an angry man he was attacking at that time need help what they're doing. Now is not attacking her just saying she's mixed up in it was mistaken identity. You know, they're not going after that much. They learn it twenty seven years Republicans couldn't find one woman to put on the judiciary committee. So what I say to you is. Yeah. Twenty seven years ago. This kind of a charge was. West considered just a horrible thing that Anita hill did. But now twenty two years twenty seven years later with the me too movement. One can only hope. It would be taken much more seriously, and that there is no place for anger here. So you've spent time on committee is questioning witnesses. I'm curious what you thought about your former colleague Senator Dianne Feinstein's performance today. There was a lot of attacks on her from Republicans about the timing of when this was brought forward. Would you have done things differently? Or do you think that she handled herself? Well. Well, first of all you have to understand that while I was committee chairman and the ranking member it wasn't on the judiciary committee. I think Diane handle herself with poise and calm. She stated the truth which was that. When Dr Ford came forward, Dr Ford begged for anonymity. She gave her that. It wasn't until this was all leaked and go to be oppressed story, the doctor forge decided to go public Senator Feinstein told the truth about that. And the truth is, and I served the Senate and the house between the two for thirty four years. The bottom line is if you're is fiction. For anonymity. Battle. You don't want to politicize the pain of a constituent she shouldn't ever do that. And if you do it, you shouldn't be in public life one last question, you were swept into office in the year of the woman following those Anita hill Clarence Thomas hearings. What impact do you think this is going to have on the electorate? Predict we're going to see a pink wage, I think we're going to see many many women, and we know that over two hundred women are running for the half. So I do expect if you if you just put together, you know, this president who was. Women attacked women doesn't care about women. You look at the women's March, which was the largest March in history, and you look at what is happening here. And the fact that Republicans died of the judiciary committee didn't even have one woman. What does that tell you? It tells you we need women. It just as that was the message when I ran and I wanted to be totally honest without the need to hell, I would never have gotten elected. It was her courage. To come forward with this painful story, just as Dr forget that had residents with women and men who care about women. And I think we're going to see the same thing here, regardless of what happened. Judge capital. All right. Senator Barbara Boxer. Thank you so much. Thank you. All right. That was Senator Barbara Boxer giving her take we're gonna take a short break. You're listening to political breakdown from public radio. Support for political breakdown.

"Her house wondering if Senator maisy Rono speaks for you as a woman, this is an actual text, Tim, my mother, my mother responded that she doesn't speak for me as a human being. She is fostering divisiveness and is a disgrace to her office, which should be American not woman. That's my mother right there. We should be clear that as your owner does not speak for women. She doesn't speak for women. There is no such thing. As speaking for women. This doesn't exist. The Democratic Party does not speak for women. It doesn't stand up for women. It doesn't believe in women at all. Let me be as clear as possible. Dianne Feinstein, the Senator from California had this information about Blasi Ford right from the beginning right from the get-go. And you know, what she did with it? Nothing. Absolutely, positively nothing. Did she not think it was important? The answer is obviously not she didn't think it was important. If she thought it was important. She would have done something with it. She did not only the only time something was done with it. When it was clear cabinet. I was going to be confirmed. If you cared about women, don't you think this would have been the first thing you talked about? Of course, it would have been. So Diane Feinstein doesn't care about women. Maisy Hirono doesn't care about women. But it's more than just this subject. I mean, let us spin the wheel of cavenaugh..

Yes. Ma'am. Okay. I can't hear and everybody's saying that the latest they, you know, they'd have not tell me society, and they stall and they're not stalling. This is nothing wrong. If they hadn't done anything wrong. Let them investigate let them get the witness. What is the big one is the rush? Well, miss Dorothy. I think the problem is been the way in which it was revealed. The way that the Senate took it on because they don't believe it because they're all no, no, ma'am. What happened was is that Dr. Dr Ford revealed to a member of congress back in July. Okay. And then that member of congress brought it to Senator Dianne Feinstein. Exactly. And it she did not want it to be revealed mid Dr Ford, but any interim of not wanting it to be revealed. She took a polygraph and engaged a lawyer. Okay. Okay. Then it was alternately revealed not because of Dr Ford releasing Dianne Feinstein Stein from her commitment to not reveal it. Diane Feinstein had revealed it to one of our staffers who told another staffer who told another staffer and it begun to get out. So then they had a meeting of the Democrats and the Democrats decided to reveal Dr Ford's accusation unbeknownst, the doctor Ford and leaked it to the media. And that's how it got out. That's why that's why they're saying that this is political in that. And just let me finish. And not the hypocrisy is with the Democrats are saying they are so concerned about the victim. Then why did you violate the confidence of the victim? And getting it out. The reason is that they thought they had something juicy that they could use to try and delay this hearing plane and Jeff. Political. It's political. Either way you go. Bye. Oh. There don't want it because they don't want. Inviting her to get out and voted. I want to. Thank you bet. You don't. But that's okay. They've been wanting to have her come before the hearing for a while they've been negotiating for almost two weeks now. So I don't know that they're afraid of.

"This is sort of an effort by pro-trump Republican members of congress to, I think hype up their constituents before they head home for a long recess maybe, but it is being greeted critically and seriously by people who oppose it. I should just tell you that Dianne Feinstein veteran democratic Senator who's the top democrat on the judiciary committee. She reacted really strongly to Republicans during this, and I think a lot of people are just dismissing this as another Republic pro-trump Republicans stunt by House Republicans tonight, but Senator Dianne Feinstein had a really strong response. She called this the filing of these impeachment articles partisan nonsense. But then she also said, quote, it's dangerous for the rule of law and it needs to stop. So they're clearly doing this is some sort of messaging thing. The message may be loud on this on on both sides. We shall see much more to come tonight. Stay with us. Sacrilegious question. I know.
