How The Coronavirus Will Be Distributed Equitably

"Emigrants have color of people. without health. Insurance people who live in impoverished area areas people who live with multigenerational families. Don't even get normal healthcare. They get they get a coronavirus at higher rates than everyone else. They have higher mortality rates than everyone else. We don't have a system that gets these people better healthcare. We don't have a system that puts these people near the front line. We deal with that. How do you deal with equity in the distribution of a vaccine is incredibly important. I mean the billionaires. Nba players should not be at the front of a life and most importantly there's got to be a federal standard. But i mean biden. Ministration is already working on that. i'm us locally across. The state and the governor's in very engaged on this. A we are going to get the vaccine person form of healthcare and medical workers essential workers first and so really the state setting up its own framework and their governments. A great job of getting answering all all of us. A cities work together and the counties wealth but within our own health system here in the city of long beach. We aren't we also established own so we know that right after those initial batches com than we know that we're going to also work on Retirement homes and nursing and then we have plans to get out to the doctor as relates. Topsy we set up our own mobile clinics going justice communities that are people that are undocumented. What do the same thing or the vaccine will mobile clinics using our testing centers. Convert them or do monolingual spanish and other languages. So it's gotta be an effort where we go after us. Yeah you you. You understand that community well got imagine. After the last four years they're much of undocumented people speakers. Who are quite leery of getting a injection from the us government. i'm not very worried about this statistic. I'm looking at the statistics of people who will not agree to take this drug. The number of people who Vaccine the number of people who've agreed to take increased now between september and november two sixty percent that it's up nine percent over that short amount of types that's good and i suspect once people start getting the vaccine that number will grow to the seventy percent plus that you need in order to create card immunity. That does that number worry. You the number of the small number of people who are prepared to take the struck. A spectrum absolut absolutely. I'm hearing from those folks already. And the truth is is really a trust of government i mean donald trump has completely broken. Trust your mental. You have a lot of release. That would be that typically much more likely to listen to the authorities that are scared. Don't interact with the when it comes to latinos are undocumented immigrants on they are very nervous about what donald trump has done to this country into our government's going to have to rebuild that trust and we're going to have to go into communities speak in their language at work low income families and brain unity organizations that are trusted incubator in with inquiries and get the vaccine. Now it just not be wait-and-see we can't sit around and wait for to get the vaccine we're gonna have to go directly into neighborhoods in their language and within with without cultural lens. Get the vaccine to them.

"The biggest example of that is the Russia hopes that was perpetrated for four years, and every opportunity Democrats used illegal in justice system. You try to undermine this president. I mean, we've seen it with countless, uh, similar lawsuits and claims of investigations and claims of evidence lists, you know. Inappropriate acts. This is dog the president before when the Obama profession was fine on his campaign all the way through the four years of his presidency. So So Donald Trump. First of all, Donald Trump has the ability. He has the power to pardon himself, right? Well, he certainly has the authority and the power to club part of himself. But it's a little bit unclear whether that would be effective because no president has tried to pardon himself in the past and then face the prosecution anyway. So there's never been a case that was tried Supreme Court to really resolve this question of if the president can pardon himself. We do know there are three exceptions to the president's pardon power. It applies to federal crimes, not state crimes. It's a criminal and not civil lawsuits. And the president cannot grant pardons for himself for impeachment. So you know there is a question is there have been some theories floated that perhaps we could kind of get weird with it and Recently invoked the 25th amendment. Have acting President Mike Pence do it, But I think at a certain point you get a little too cute by half here and run the risk of straining the future legal defense if it becomes necessary run that by me again, the 25th amendment and what would happen. In other words, Trump would Resign early and have pence take over as president for a number of days or weeks towards the end, leading up to January, 20th and then part of the president. It could be doing. It could be a sort of a temporary incapacitation, and they part is issued and then it flips back to President Trump's. It would be a brief for the purpose of issue in this pardon, but again, I think you know those sorts of maneuvers take something that's already been untested. And sort of acknowledged the weakness that the administration would feel about the argument of the president pardoning himself, and so it may be a smarter decision to just if he chooses a part of himself just to do it directly in his own hand. What happened? I followed this, I think is well as any layman may maybe not as well as any lawyer or as well as any elected officials. But I think I followed the last four years as closely as anyone as well as anyone. What exactly did Donald Trump do in the last four years that would warrant him having to grant apart into himself. I I don't sense anything to you. Well, I think that's the big question, right? And so generally you don't part in someone if they've done nothing wrong, right? And so, you know, there's this theory that if you part in someone you run the risk of making them look like criminals when in fact they are not. I think the administration is taking a broader view of blanket sort of part in approach, which would defuse that argument. It would say that look we're doing this is a matter of protection and we're going to issue proactive part is not only for the president but for members of his family like Donald Trump Trump Jr. Eric Trump of AKA Trump Son in law, Jared Kushner is being discussed. Rudy Giuliani is being discussed. And I think it gets down to this. I mean, we've seen how litigious the Democrats and the loony left have been in pursuing the president while he's been in office with the resource is that Trump has there..

Trump's intelligence chief warns China is the greatest threat to US since WWII

"Outgoing us administration of president. Donald trump has thus far extended few of the traditional courtesies to the incoming administration of president elect joe biden. There has been no two of the white house no sporting photo op in the rose. Garden and little of the handover briefings from one group of officials to the next however director of national intelligence. John ratcliffe whether trying to help or hinder has passed along. His top worth to the next president in a wall street journal op-ed he has warned. President elect biden that china poses the greatest threat to america today and to worldwide democracy since world war two on joined with more on this point. Isabel hilton ceo at china dialogue. Isabel is the director of national intelligence entirely wrong here. We never entirely wrong but they do manage to you. Make a really terrible case turn radcliffe. I would remind you is director of national intelligence by skin of his teeth. When he was first nominated there was such a sort of howl of protest is lack of qualifications and the fact that he had falsified his own resume that that that trump at one point had to withdraw nomination before trying again. So you know as a kind of bond with the distinguished record nuanced analysis. I would you know maybe take it with a pinch of salt. That said clearly that the you know that china is a major challenge to democratic values of the united states. is meant to defend this. After a couple of problems with this framing one. It is clearly designed to To constrain at the incoming administration that is trying to take very different approach to foreign policy and the outgoing administration is trying to narrow the ground so saying that china is the greatest threat to freedom. Well you know okay It is true that china has indulged in ip theft. Absolutely true surprise just as the united states by the way did against the uk in the twentieth century. is it that may be ongoing espionage. Certainly and china certainly has nationalist ambitions. It certainly trying to bend the global rules to serve its own interest that is what big powers do including the united states. So the problem is is not the diagnosis. If you like. It's the reverend is that the trump administration has offered over the last four years which have simply made it easier for china to advance. Its case so the i think dangers here. One is the exaggeration of china's powers. And that's something we saw with the soviet union towards the end of the cold war. That if you have security agencies whose prosperity depends on building a threat they will big up a threat and so right to the moment when the soviet union collapsed we were hearing from. Us intelligence and security agencies that the world was about to be overwhelmed by soviet communism. And there's a bit of the same syndrome going on here but the second problem is the complete ineptitude of the trump administration encountering the chinese efforts to do that you have to build alliances not destroy them. And you have to make sure that your own offer has credibility. Most people prefer living a well-functioning democracy with personal freedoms trump has not been the best advert for that. At least for the trump's the united states is not the finest moment for democracy. And so you know yes. Of course there is a challenge here to challenge values challenge a political system but the way to country is with the integrity of our own political systems including that of the united states red cliff talks of china operating an influence campaign inside the united states. And on the one hand. That's a somewhat fatuous statement because everybody operates influence campaign inside the united states and indeed in pretty much every other country but is there anything especially sinister or dangerous about what china is doing. Ratcliffe also talks of them targeting members of congress. Well again no surprise. China has has done this an onion eternal lays it all out if you look at anything to do with the united front work department. Which is that bit of the party which has always existed which is intended to manage relations with non party elements. It used to be largely working within china building relationships or or not with religious authorities or with business. People are not in the communist party. Now that china's going global so has the united front work department and it has teamed up with a with the entity in the party that used to manage overseas chinese affairs so and it has put an enormous amount of money into this since the beijing olympics which was regarded as a pr disaster for china in so many ways Would've been the results. Well according to the pew survey in the last month china's reputation has never been lower so yes. China is putting great efforts into influence building and so far. They've been a terrible flop now. There is an element of this which is elite capture. Which again was going pretty. Well i think certainly in the uk for example in an example of elite capture would be the approach of the cameron government to china which you know proclamations of the golden decade. And so on. That's her you know very much again. If you look at elite attitude to china largely because of china's overreach there has been a big backlash everywhere from australia to the united states to europe. You hear the same message. so yes. they're making an effort but is it working. No it's not just one final thought and it's it's a concern that ratcliff doesn't raise for obvious reasons but is there any kind of danger of between now and january twentieth china just thinking there's nobody watching the shop if we're ever going to try and pull something big when never gonna get another chance like this. Well of course the big worry. I mean you might say. Hong kong was that the big warriors taiwan. And there's been a lot of jostling as you know in taiwan. I guess another option is the is the india china border again. We've seen quite a lot of live action there this year. My personal views. That taiwan is a step too far think china has a really a realistic understanding of what it would take not only to take taiwan but then to make that occupation work. And this you know. There are plenty of warnings about how difficult that is. And is this the moment to risk so much in pursuit of that. Of course the regime wants to recapture taiwa are how reunite or however they care to phrase it. But i think we've pretty much got twenty forty nine before that becomes acute in their many other Things that many other things that can be done to make taiwan life difficult short of a military assault isabel hilton front.

"Master chief coming four. It certainly seems so yesterday The item shop started to leak four. I often that while we were live yesterday. Cradles credos teaser. Images came in hot and heavy showing the greatest coming to fort seems to be one hundred percent true. I then made the prediction. That a game awards they would come out and the four hundred announcement would be house. Chief in sama's all being announced for fortnight This morning actually. Late last night New starting to break again. We are on hype x. Right now we'll be getting a halo co lab to if it's not scrapped. The skin is going to be master. Chief kevin if you click on it you click on capitol get a little bit bigger. I you can see. We have of course master chief there as the character. His glider is the pelican. Does that get you excited. They're all yet. It is a little hog there for when you must there. And then yeah. He's got his What gravity gravity hammer hammer. Sorry it's very pixelated pickaxe. Kevin if you want to go to the next one. This is four might have started it. What's the deal with the little word hug. Like when would. I think that's an email this little dance. You see how it's got little dance. I kind of I love it. Yeah that's really kooks that fortnite battle royale leaks. Twitter are the people who put this. Initially i think this is what barrett show shared last night in our for channel They say here's some images that halo cosmetics. These are confirmed to be real so again. Take it with a grain of salt as hypoc says it's not scrapped. This is what this looks like. One hundred percent believe it. I think this is all going to be a game. Awards announcement tim. Where's your head at the game stuff is the one thing i'm not totally locked in on. They haven't actually fully announced this to me that because that was about to say like why would they hold off one when they'd been announcing him so anybody that has been officially adopt. Or is that still. Okay okay. gotcha then. Yeah that that does make a lot of sense what's interesting about. This is stick into the salmon's theory because the in multiple ways sammy's is one of these things. It's not like the other when you have chief crato and sama's like if it was chief and sam is that kind of makes sense but it puts kind of a different level where like it should be. Mario you know as like the face of the company type conversation hold that it goes back to you i. i'm out. I'm totally outside of this ship. You guys are like all about this fortnight that's a fortnight household include. Joey she's freaking out and we're hanging out. She's trying to explain to me. She's like oh shit like man. Lloyd theory is it's bounty hunters and my first reaction was sarah. So it's i think there's multiple things leading to to sammy's even if it's not just the big three. The bigger question is doesn't intend to play nice because intendo go nintendo. That is the big question. And i think that that is. What's so fascinating to see. Is that yeah. It's a bounty hunter. Sees and talk about these hunters. They're doing all these different things. I think you can make a case for obviously not bounty hunter but in a different way cradles being hunter. Obviously she's being hunter and then for salmon. A bounty hunter is nintendo down to share this stuff in a crossover co lab. Are they down to have her running around with an ar shooting other people like roof. Yeah i don't know. I think honestly i. That's the one on the weakest on that. I think that they're standing in the way then. Is it just going to be crato in master chief coming together to or coming at each other to fight in the trailer or whatever for the announcement because what i'd like to throw in here. I mentioned this yesterday. That during a jesmyn doing zoom calls for the game awards right. He's been bringing on guests he brought on donald mustard of course the big for fortnight that you see every year of the game wards talking about it in donald's it something to this is gonna be a huge deal at the game awards for fortnight What i did hear a quick google. I'm looking at. I fire monkey. Who put all this together on their twitter and says in a recent zoom call with jeff key lean donald mustard. A few hints have been revealed about the future fortnight. This info comes from a source. Who would like to remain anonymous harvard. Credible rationing who's on the call. There will be an announcement at the game wars for fortnight The game wars will take place in two separate tenth. A new recording session with troy baker took place. That's already happened. 'cause we know that stuff right This season is the biggest event they've ever done and it will change the future of fortnight when asked about getting more when asked about getting items smash brothers universe donald muster simply stated. He can't comment about it. One of the things. I brought up yesterday. A loose manner was this. The quote of this is the biggest event they've ever done and it will change feature a fortnight. I think when you hear that coming off the back of the marvel season somebody who. I love playing the marble season at the end. We all were super into me. Barrick have a blessed joey. Roger who kevin keeps dragging into these things even though he i don't like him being on our stuff all right. I'll say it. He's a part time editor. He doesn't deserve to be around as much as i mean. He's killing bats. The one reason. I'll let it keep happening right. Keeps me alive. Say this on a need.

Pelosi and Schumer back $900 billion coronavirus stimulus plan as basis for negotiations

"Lots of corona virus. Relief packages are floating around the hill. That doesn't mean help is on the way by. Philip elliott the headlines coming out of capitol hill. This week might have you think. Another round of much-needed coronavirus relief. Just a few details away. After months of stalemate since the last relief significant bill was passed back in march. It looks like there is finally some momentum peel back the veneer just a little however and the reality reveals itself to be far more complicated. Let's go through the three options that have captured the imagination of lawmakers and advocates alike. Even more may eventually be thrown onto the negotiating table and elements of each of these may bleed into the others but let's not make this too messy at least not at first one. A bi partisan group of senators on tuesday unveiled a nine hundred and eight billion dollar proposal. That looked to split the difference between house. Democrats two point four trillion dollar offer and senate republicans six hundred and fifty billion dollar offer. Part of the total cost would come from some of the five hundred dollars in unspent money from the last round of relief so the price tag is a little misleading. It's a stopgap measure that has growing support from rank and file lawmakers who are finding it more and more difficult to justify inaction in pursuit of the perfect. This proposal would stretch through the first fiscal quarter of calendar year. Twenty twenty one or until the end of march and would cobble together hundred sixty billion dollars to fund a state and local governments. That are running. on fumes. As tax revenue has dried up with the economic downturn. The measure also has more than three hundred billion dollars in loans and grants for small businesses. Twenty five billion dollars in relief for renters an extra three hundred dollars per week for unemployed americans it does not however include an extra twelve hundred dollar stimulus payment. That house speaker. Nancy pelosi in president. Donald trump both backed treasury secretary. Steven mnuchin said. He was reviewing the bipartisan proposal. The white house called it a non starter saying it plan to work with senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell and house minority leader kevin mccarthy on a targeted covid relief plan to pelosi and senate minority leader. Chuck schumer have their own democrats only outlined for a new offer. They haven't released details but it was sent over to mcconnell in a private letter on monday. The draft was meant to restart negotiations which have been hold for weeks in most unhelpful. Move mcconnell announced the offers existence and further frustrated democrats who say republicans aren't negotiating in good faith. Democrats have insisted cash be included for state and local governments a major point of dispute for many republicans. Who say it's not washington's problem to fix local budgets. No total cost was attached

Arthur Caplan: The COVID-19 Vaccine

"Vaccine candidates currently awaiting emergency use authorization from the FDA, with more likely coming soon in the middle of what the White House coronavirus task Force says is the most dangerous period off this pandemic, So what's taking so long to get a green light on the vaccines? Arthur Caplan, founding head of the Division of medical ethics at and my use. School of Medicine's been with us before Welcome back. Thank you for having me. So let's see if I can set the stage for this. So here we are in the US, we failed miserably at containing the virus. We failed miserably at controlling the virus. We failed miserably at rolling out testing. We failed miserably. A contact tracing And now a vaccine that was invented in Germany was developed here in the U. S by U S company is already going by next week into the arms of countless people in the UK How did that happen? What happened because they have a different style of emergency use approval. They do rolling data every week. Their regulatory body takes a look. We set up meetings with advisory committees. Have them review the data. Then wait a couple more weeks for the FDA to review all the data, and there's a lot of it. We're talking thousands of pages, so they're willing to kind of do it week by week and keep the regulators if you will poised to move where a little more staggered. Trying to kind of do it on our schedule basis with time in between, for the big review. I like the European idea, but I've called for our groups to go faster. I mean, people are dying. As you pointed out, we flubbed just about every aspect of this, so getting the vaccine out as fast as we can to health care workers and nursing home residents is crucial. But I think my cries are falling on deaf ears. We're gonna be waiting another two weeks. Yes, you say we were just talking about meetings now There's too many meetings, actually. But when is our next like Gold Post meeting? There's something that's happening on on the 10th. And then after that, maybe we have another week or two before people actually get shots or another meeting. Yeah, well, the tent will be the big meeting lot of recommendations being made that about emergency use to the FDA. The FDA will take a day or two to think about it. And then I think they'll say OK, and happily, some vaccines already shipping. Uh, there have been shipments in New York State. I think California's got some ready to go. So I'm thinking Maybe five days. Six days after that, December 10th meeting, say December 15 16 should start to see healthcare workers on the front lines getting vaccinated. Why do we have this? Almost madness. Mike and I were talking about it as you pointed out during the break. For meetings. I mean, sometimes there's you know, a meeting can have a good purpose. But in an emergency situation like that, you know if the ship is sinking, you don't want to first have a meeting to decide what you're gonna do with life boats to get on the lifeboats and get off the sinking ship. So meetings. They're killing us. Well, here's why it's trust. So if you look at the polls, there's a lot of folks saying I don't know about this vaccine. I'm not gonna take it member of vaccines only as good as the number of people who accept the vaccine we can have vaccines discovered. But if they stay on the shelves because people reject them, they're no good. Um Even doctors and nurses in some recent polls have shown reluctance to take these new vaccines. They're nervous. They think they've been rushed. We had a situation that Britain didn't have quite is badly, which is we had a president in the White House, pushing, pushing, pushing get these things approved before Election Day. You know, I want to be able to claim that I solved the problem, said Donald Trump, He bred an enormous amount of doubt. Then he went after some of his own experts, so it isn't just the meetings. It's the distrust that Exists here in vaccines in what the federal government is saying about vaccines in what authorities say about vaccines. That's part of what we're overcoming by having these drying assemblies where the FDA says the date is good, and we're signing off. Just some people overcome some of that when they see the health care workers get them. I mean, if all the nurses have taken it, and everything's working out, Okay, and then some of your essential worker neighbors start taking it and it's working out, okay? I think that's a great point. And I think that is exactly what's gonna happen. I think all we see these polls saying, I don't know I'm not sure I don't want to be first. If your grandma is in a nursing home, and you know that many people have died there. If you see all these sports teams getting cut up, unable to play, canceling things because of high positivity rates if you're stuck, isolating and quarantining because things were out of control and health care workers and people who work in nursing homes again. Things and they're having no adverse reactions and it looks like they're getting protection. I think we're gonna shift from meetings and we're gonna shift from distrust to how come I can't get this vaccine, But it's not here in line. Very, very briefly. What happens with all I mean, all these vaccines? I know, because I'm in one of the trials. What happens to all these trials that were designed for two years? That can't go on Canada. It's good point. Thank you for being in the trial. But here's what happens As soon as these things get approved. You were others. They're going to say my in the placebo group, because if I am I want a chance to get this newly emergency authorized vaccine and I want out of the placebo group. Sometimes scientists say, Well, we can't do that. You signed up. We need to get the data. For more than two months or three months. You gotta stay in, but I think that's not gonna happen. People have to know if they're in the placebo group, and they want to go get this agent. They have to be on blinded. You have that right? You should know and be able to say I want to take this vaccine. If I'm in a high risk group. I want to get it. Arthur Gambling founding

"donald" Discussed on Rubicon: The Impeachment of Donald Trump

"Susan Susan Hennessy. Welcome to Rubicon. Thanks for having me. So we're at a bit of a disadvantage in that. We're recording this episode on Thursday but the key vote on whether we're going to have anything anything like a fair trial in the Senate for Donald Trump's impeachment won't happen until Friday and we may not even know how that vote is going to shake out until it actually happens so for the purposes of this conversation I wanNA focus for the most part on the proposition. Trump and his lawyers have put forth and how Republicans in particular Picula have reacted to it because it bottom Republicans seem prepared to accept it whether there are witnesses or not at eventually. The story ends without sixty seven votes to remove Donald Trump from office. How would you characterize the proposition that that? They're preparing themselves to affirm mm-hmm so nobody ever wants to be considered naive in this town. And so I say this with with a risk of being proven wrong in pretty rapid order. I'm still just refuse to believe that the Senate would actually be willing to not even call John in Bolton as a witness because that would be an expression that impeachment is not a genuine constitutional remedy. It's not a real check on executive give power it's just a raw measurement of how many members of the president's own party sit in the Senate and I think what we're seeing play out right now. I'm is the terrible terrible choice. The Republican senators have created for themselves because on one hand they want to be perceived as you undertaking. A legitimate should image investigation a legitimate trial. Even though they know full well that they intend to quit the president at the end of this and and of course I think something like seventy five percent of Americans say `I I they believe that additional witnesses should be called. I'm but the senators have a really big problem because John Bolton has come out and he's said I have a story to tell and it's really bad and it shatters a lot of the implausible deniability that you've been clinging to an. I'm going to tell that story eventually. I'm gonNA tell it in a book. I'm going to tell it in an interview. This this story is coming out and so what Republican Senators have to decide is do they want to be confronted with that story under oath and then have to actually cast a vote wrote not a furrowed brow in a Senate hallway. Not a disapproving tweet about being gravely concerned but an up or down. Vote on the question of whether or not this is acceptable. Whether or not this tolerable and I think if we get down to it and the balance of fears between between Senate Republicans of being perceived perceived as a not undertaking legitimate investigation versus the consequence of undertakings illegitimate investigation. I think that's the anguish that we're seeing. I'm playing out right now I continue to think I too hope that there will be four senators who realized that this is just not not that this that this impeachment trial simply would not be perceived as legitimate by the American public. If John Bolton doesn't come to testify but for the purposes of this recording. I think that we have to you know we're in the dark for the next twenty four hours As to how this is actually going to play out and by the time people listen to this. That question will be answered one way or another Either we're going to be in a world where John Bolton is going to testify or we're going to be in one where this is all gonna and we're going to figure out what his stories later. I just think that whichever happens. There's one more vote after after that. which is a a a quitter convict and even today? I think I count enough. Republican senators who have essentially said. Even if what Bolton's book is purported to to claim is true. I'm we're just not going to convict trump and so if we just Liba ahead to the assumption that he's acquitted what do you interpret Republicans to be saying by having acquitted him. Does that make sense. Yeah I interpret Republicans to be saying that it is tolerable. Acceptable for the president of the United States is to use the powers of his office to extort a foreign leader into becoming an opposition researcher for his political campaign. I I would say that these senators senators are voting to say that it is acceptable to have a president and in this really goes sort of the core argument. We loud in this book but a president in who does not view the interests of the office of the presidency as in any way distinct from the interests of the occupant that those are completely completely merged in political interest in financial interests. And and this really goes to the heart of trump's vision of the presidency this sense that the purpose of the presidency she is to serve the president and it serves the public only coincidentally or when convenient or as an afterthought and that isn't a question of you've expanding the edges of executive power the ordinary sort of areas in which we're used to debating limits of presidential power it it goes to the very core and it says that the president can use the these really astonishingly Empowering Authority ordeal that the constitution vests in him. I'm for his own purposes and not on behalf of the country and and if that is true and if the Senate is willing to tolerate hollering that that has long term structural ramifications across lots of different axes and and the Senate may may try to sort of kid themselves by saying. Oh No. We're making a very narrow vote about the nature of this form of an impeachable offense or that form. But but this is a blunt instrument you're either impeaching and removing the president has an or you aren't and so they really are fooling themselves if they don't think that the ultimate statements that they're making is. This is acceptable acceptable and they are accepting. I'm glad you brought up John Bolton for this reason because you're a you could in theory imagine a situation in which for plus Republican senators not enough to convict him but enough to say. There's a real problem here get together and say look like we're not going to there's no reason to To to draw this proceeding indefinitely but we acknowledge something terrible happened here and so we're interested in is in. What can we do as legislators power to say okay? We're not going to remove him from office office but we are going to take some steps to make sure that this doesn't become the norm at least in our Party and censoring him. Yo ramping ramping. Up a regular oversight activities and that's just not in the cart. Nobody's even discussing that as an option Which is why I feel like take the emergence of Bolton and and and what we believe we know he is in his book is so revelatory Is like most trump scandal seem to follow this pattern where he and all of the principals deny whatever their alleged to have done outright. Then say it didn't it didn't happen but if it did happen it wouldn't be so bad and then finally I did it and it was awesome and to me what striking about the role. The boat revelations have played is how how quickly they moved us from step two to step three where where Republicans and trump's lawyers have been kinda stuck saying could pro quos normal but even here Democrats Kratz haven't proved that trump ever explicitly linked Ukraine aid to Sham Biden investigations. Bolton's you know book the details of what's in Bolton's book book come out and he says that's bullshit and actually trump did exactly that almost overnight. We we get to trump and everyone around him kinda claiming dictatorial power to cheat in his own election which leaves no space for any kind of intermediate remedy. Does that make sense. I think it does look. I think what has been happening. Is You know the idea that there were there were senators who And you know in good faith were looking at the the record produced by the House and they saw this evidence and some of it was somewhat troubling. And Gosh Gosh it really does look like the president did one investigations into his political opponent. Joe Biden and his son or at least the announcement of those investigations. And Gosh. It really does look like the President United States frozen military aid to Ukraine and then lied about it in an head why he did it from Congress but shucks. I just don't know how we could possibly tie those. It's two things together. which by the way what people like? Kurt Volker attempted to testify to a while. We knew there was this one bad thing happening knew there. Was this other bad thing happening. But you're telling me see these two bad things were actually about the same thing or it's a whole game has been this completely implausible story. That's how these two things were not connected. And here's John Bolton coming forward and saying they're connected and I can testify to what the president actually said putting both of these things in the exact same sentence and what that does is it pops sort of implausible deniability that we've seen so many actors operating an in bad faith and we should acknowledge that they're pretending right it's not that they actually. They're actually stunned by this new revelation. They're pretending because they know that they eventually are going to vote to quit. The president of the United States and so the problem is is that that now requires a pivot right. You can't just say well. Of course it would be incredibly disturbing if the president tied military aid to abusive investigations nations. Something that Lindsey Graham and many others actually said at the outset of the revelations of this scandal you know but we're not going to call a witness before for the Senate who is who is a person who's imposition actually. Tie those two things together. You can't make that argument plausibly. And so instead you have to move into this really astonishing initiative constitutional argument and and really that is the heart of the argument. The heart of the argument is that the president of the United States is allowed to use the powers of his office for any purpose. He'd like so long as he can articulate at least some rationale for why it was in fact on behalf of the public interest even if there's also a corrupt motive present present and it doesn't matter how how implausible or contradicted by the documentary record. That sort of that rationale of why he was doing on behalf of the public might be so long as you can say something and really what we're talking about here is is a completely unconstrained unconstrained executive an executive that does not need to in fear impeachment and removal and the exercise of his office so long as he knows that the Senate is controlled by members. I have his own party so in researching on making the presidency. Were you struck by any historical examples of the presidency. Changing alarming ways but in ways. That didn't didn't ever stick in hindsight we can kind of say. We dodged a bullet entered. Johnson is probably the best example of this so Johnson actually is impeach although not removed. She's the first president to be impeached. And he's sort of trumpy figure right he's He's a demagogue. He've he allies. He you you know. He insults his political opponents. He's actually one of the articles of impeachment is. It's for the way he speaks and sort of his language. I'm in search for for being a little bit like a like a trump rally actually was one of the articles of impeachment and of course for ignoring the log knowing the constraints of the law ignoring ignoring the The legislature as a CO equal branch. And he's impeached. And it's kind of a blip People talk about Johnson now but but just as a negative example for rape kind of president that you don't WanNa be and so you know.

"donald" Discussed on Rubicon: The Impeachment of Donald Trump

"It's complicated because in ordinary trial. You're completely right that the prosecutor would say and you will hear evidence that one thing. The prosecutor can't do in a trial title because it's not lawful is to say in the opening statement in front of the grand jury the witnesses already said thus and such and so therefore the guy is guilty because you can't in ordinary trial refer to evidence that was gathered outside of the trial. The whole principle of due process of law is that the evidence has to be brought to bear right there in front of the jury. So that's not what happens in ordinary trial at all the prosecutors here. The house managers had no choice but to do that because they may not have a chance to call any witnesses but they did have more leeway than an ordinary prosecutor would because they can refer freely to all of the evidence that was gathered in front of the House House which you could not do it in a criminal trial. The Way I think about all this is that there are signals the Senate can and has in the past provided to indicate to the public. I guess that the trial outcome ref would reflect impartial. Justice like one is through. Consensus is if if senators agree on the trial rules. One hundred zero like they did in the in the Clinton case. That's a pretty strong indication that the Senate believes it's equipped to to render judgment fairly and another. would be like the completeness of the record you know if the question is has it received or sought all the information it needs to make decisions about guilt. Answer's yes that's a pretty strong indication that the public whether they're happy with the outcome or not should treated treated as legitimate. Yeah you're right and I know what you're saying which is completely true and correct raises a really fascinating question to me which is is given that the Republicans in the Senate no they ninety nine percent likelihood have the votes to vote not to remove Donald Trump from office purpose and given that they could get the legitimacy you're describing by having farrow and agreed upon procedure and then listening to the witnesses and then voting. Why aren't they doing it? I mean that really is a hard question and I don't mean to ask that in some. You know purely rhetorical by saying. Why aren't they doing that? I'm trying to force them into doing it. I'm actually asking a genuine question. What is it that they're so concerned about? I mean if John Bolton testifies and says his worst do we. I really think that that's GONNA move enough senators to change the outcome to get us to a two thirds majority necessary to remove Donald Trump. I would be stunned if that were the case. Yes so I mean. Imagine the worst thing that John Bolton can say yes I went into Donald trump and I told him. This violates national security and it's an impeachable offense and he said to me I don't care you know I wanna get reelected Ima- imagine that that was the testimony. Do we really believe that would get us. Two thirds majority of centers. I kind of don't and so I don't don't really understand at a deep level. Why the Senate majority is taking the risk of the whole trial being seen as illegitimate? Unless you think that the the answer is that they are so committed to the idea that the whole process is illegitimate. They're so committed to Donald Trump's narrative. The whole impeachment is as he keeps on saying a hoax. Folks you know fake that they think there's nothing wrong with doing it their way as a hoax and as a fake and then they'll just say yeah well they did a hoax. We did a hoax. I do think that Jr on a cer- like working on a on a completely different plane that there is something important about trying to get Congress to win in this basic question of whether these people have to testify whether these documents have to be produced in an impeachment that's in part about obstruction of Congress that that whether it has any bearing on how the senators ultimately vote or if senators enters ultimately vote to acquit on charges. Anyway I if this process ends with the obstruction both having been You know Attempted and then be having been successful and see he gets acquitted. Anyway that's just a roadmap for future presidents to engage in wholesale cover-ups like this and I mean maybe that's Maybe that's a kind of argument that that the house managers should be making about. Why testimony is important even though there's already enough to convict But that's one thing that's actually worried me about how what's going to happen if they get to the end of all this they Vote not to hear any more witnesses see anymore documents and then quit and then I have you know in a in a trial that was about obstructing congress in part. That's a great point and I'm also worried about that. You know one thing that I have been saying. All along about the obstruction of Congress articles of impeachment is the reason you know that it was appropriate to impeach the president as if Congress starts impeachment inquiry in the present. stonewalls says. I'M NOT GONNA cooperate in the end. The only remedy left that saves us from a presidency. That's completely above. The law is impeachment. Like that's the only thing you can do if you're the house right you say you're gonNA impeach and and the President says I won't cooperate you know you can't go to the courts and compel it not realistically and frankly it's entirely possible that the courts would've said not our problem impeachment is your soul power. Not Ours is an all you can do is to impeach under those circumstances and if you know the president is then nevertheless. LS Not removed from office. It does send that message as you say that the president can just get away with it. And that's very worrisome. For the basic structure basic structure of our government. Some future presence might not want to be impeached and I will say that. The second article of impeachment was unnecessary from the president's perspective. Active he could have fought the individual witnesses one at a time without announcing in that grand way that he did that he wouldn't cooperate in any way and if he had done that he would have escaped that second article of impeachment. So you know that was I would call that an unforced error. I actually think he was an unforced error that should be attributed it at least in parts of the White House counsel who wrote that letter and signed that letter and who is now defending the president so apparently the president doesn't think it was an error because he's relying on the same guy right now to defend him. That's a separate question. Like why is that. Okay but bottom line there is a serious serious danger that if president think they can get away with two stonewalling that the congress congressional power to impeach will just eroded to nothing. Let's let's wind down on on that point because I think think it's right to say this will be the first time the Senate has used it so power to try impeachment to conceal rather than consider evidence period. Right I think so. Oh Yeah I mean. I can't think of any prior example. Where they're where they're not trying to get witnesses not trying to get more information so just taking it as a given that impeachment supporters and Democrats and you know hopefully a growing list of people as time goes on Talk about it that way and try to leave an asterisk next to this trial l.. What will the consequences for the impeachment? Power be going forward or can we even say anything about that before the next election. We'll as you say. The election is hugely significant and we will interpret events in light of that election after the fact even if there's no good hard scientific reason to think they ought to be so. If trump is not removed from office as seems probable and is then reelected right we end the judgement of history will be boy. Impeachment has completely lost the Umph that historically had you know the idea that you know bill. Clinton's legacy was seriously tainted anted by impeachment. The idea that Richard Nixon resigned rather than being a running the risk of being impeached not just removed but but impeach that will look like a a very faint relic of a of a lost time if on the other hand trump is not convicted and then loses in the election even if he would have lost the election anyway. You know people will say well you see. Impeachment is vindicated. Maybe you weren't able to remove the president from office but the taint of impeachment was so significant that it had an impact on the presidential election. And we'LL WANNA tell ourselves that story because we want to legitimate our existing institutions creaky old constitution. You know two hundred and twenty five plus plus years old and there's a way in which you know no other country in the world still runs its affairs in this way since we enacted our Constitution. France has been through five reboots right Francis on what they call their fifth republic. That's their five point. Oh their version. Five point oh of their constitution at a time that we're still stuck doc with basically the same thing although with you know at the reconstruction amendments added in but when it comes to impeach him. We've got the exact same creaky thing we've already had always had and it's possible that it just doesn't work anymore and that's something that's painful but we need to confront that reality. I want to offer you a close on on a happier. Thought of you have on for for listeners. Or if if there's any sort of optimistic side to how you you see these events playing out well there is. There is because right right now whether you and I are speaking. We're we're in the middle of events and I think you know it's appropriate for us to be honest. I think you've been and I'm trying to be also about the genuine threat to structure of our institutions that exists but we are not speaking right now at a point where those institutions are destroyed. You know the president of United States took actions agency that to my mind at least are clearly at the core of what the framers thought should be impeachable and he was impeached. So in that sense offense. The institution is working correctly as we speak. The institution is working correctly in that impeachment occurred. The trial may insert raised illegitimate the non-removal of the president. If that's what happens in certain ways be a legitimate. They're all these problems they're real. We've been talking about them but it remains possible still that our democratic institutions will be robust enough to save us. You Know Donald Trump could lose the next election and then we will be able to tell ourselves with some credibility we got through it. You know our long national nightmare there will then in some way over. We shouldn't be naive about it. Even if that happens we should go back and look at what we can do better but that is still a possible outcome..

"I have been directed by the House of Representatives to inform the Senate. The House has passed h read seven nine eight a resolution appointing and authorizing managers but the impeachment trial of Don. John John from he has been held accountable. He has been impeached. He's been impeached forever. They can never erase that. There's conventional wisdom in Washington. That goes like this. Nancy Pelosi delayed the start of Donald Trump's impeachment trial for several weeks to four Senate Republicans. Not to rig it. And since it's Mitch. McConnell didn't agree to hear from witnesses or subpoenaed documents that means she lost but the conventional wisdom is wrong. She one to see why imagine policy referred the articles of impeachment right after the House passed them. McConnell could have buried the trial in the Christmas holiday or convenient right after the New Year Senate. Republicans have dismissed the charges or acquitted trump based on the bad faith argument that the house didn't hear from firsthand witnesses. All of whom of course trump ordered not to testify testify instead Pelosi created uncertainty. There'd be no trial until we know whether Republicans plan to engage in a cover-up or not what and that left every Republican senator hounded by a simple question would they allow witnesses or would they block them. McConnell didn't quote quote Unquote Cave but it sure seems like his members did Maine Senator. Susan Collins told reporters on Friday that she's working with a small group of fellow all over Republicans on ensuring witnesses in the trial. I can't imagine that only two witnesses that our democratic colleagues would WANNA call would would be called. Sally should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment..

"Greg Sargent thanks for coming back on the show. Thanks for having me on Brian. So by the time people listened to this episode. Donald Trump will be impeached beached He will probably be very upset about it But because of the holidays will be in this kind of little phase where the process is still underway. But nothing's is happening If you're vulnerable Senate Republican are you happy about the pause or would you rather get it over with sooner rather than later. Well I think a lot depends on how the break goes right. I mean if they start catching hell in their in their states about from constituents who are who are angry about the potential for a sham. I am process Sham trial. Then I think that they hate to have to wait. I mean it's GonNa be on democratic groups and pro rule of law groups to kick up a lot of fuss during that period and get some pressure on them along those lines. Those of us who supported impeachment from the outset have made the argument that there's this value in doing it even if Republicans are going to make sure that trump's days in office Because the process the forcing Republicans in the House and Senate to take votes it all those votes essentially constitute them his corruption their own. How do you think that proposition looks today? Well I think it looks really good and you can see that very clearly in precisely what Mitch McConnell is doing to try and turn this trial Ryland to a very quick little. Donald Trump was out there and I don't really think we should place much stock in this. But he was out there saying oh I want to turn this into a AH a festival of of baying for Hunter. Biden's head on a platter and Mitch McConnell Essentially shut that down pretty quick and said no and I think as you wrote somewhere Mitch McConnell was saving trump from himself. And doing this as well as saving his own marginal members from long drawn out trial. Point being though that Mitch Inch Mitch. McConnell understands as well as anyone else does that the more facts that are brought into evidence the worse it is for the marginal Republican senators and tough places like Susan Susan Collins and main Martha mcsally and errors in Arizona and so forth. I had direct experience of that earlier this week. I was able to get The video of Susan Collins in Nineteen Ninety nine during the Bill Clinton impeachment trial calling for more witnesses and evidence. I am willing to travel. The road owed wherever it leads whether it's to the conviction or the acquittal of the president but in order to do that I need more evidence. I need witnesses and further evidence to guide me to the right destination to get to the truth and I was surprised that they got back to me. Pretty quick with a quote from Senator herself saying I haven't made the decision on the witness issue in this particular case now. This is only a process question. You'd think thank right but it's a tough process question. Do you want to vote for the cover up or do you want to vote for transparency and truth and The fact that Susan Collins this is struggling with this I think shows that even just going through the motions is tough for them. Yeah I mean it's there's you know multiple all steps here right there's Probably going to be some sort of resolution to establish the ground rules of the trial and then at some point votes on witnesses and then the vote vote on whether to acquit or convict. And it's obviously Mitch McConnell's goal to make sure that the Republicans vote to convict and ideally the Republicans ever have to vote for any witnesses at all so that just that means he's going to try to around fifty one votes to basically basically dismissed the charges Before you even get to place where house. Impeach managers can request or demand Mick Mulvaney or John Bolton testify before the Senate every phase of that process the the cost to Republicans I think becomes higher her but that just means that at the at the early phase you know. Are we going to. Are we going to have a fair trial at all Mitch. McConnell can lose two or three senators give them a free free pass to say I want to hear from witnesses but if you get fifty one votes to dismiss they can say look. I tried tried to vote for A process where Where we heard from witnesses? My colleagues disagreed. So now I have to vote With what we have before us from from the articles articles of impeachment in the presentation of them by by the managers. And I don't think there's enough there to convict so I quit. And thus every Republican Senator Votes votes to acquit. And I. I don't think that that's like a highly unlikely outcome And I guess it just it gets to. It gets to my thinking about like like what more Democrats could do. I obviously votes to cover up Trump's crimes you know say no to any witness testimony are going to be bad for whichever vulnerable. Republicans have to take those votes but you know should Democrats have. I've been beating the drum starting in September that that Republicans need to be committing to a fair trial now should Democrats be withholding unrelated legislation education. Like the Defense Authorization Act or the The NAFTA UPDATE and just saying we're not going to play ball with you on on other things if what you're going to do is complete the cover up. Trump is asking you. Well I just want to return to something you said earlier about the scenario a scenario ruin which Mitch McConnell. Let's to two or so of the marginal senators Make fake noises about wanting a real trial and then still oh passing a quick Acquittal with fifty one or passing the initial steps to the acquittal by essentially getting past the process stuff with fifty one votes I think the calculation there becomes complicated for them right because even if they do that even if Susan Collins and Cory Gardner and Martha mcsally or whichever three you pick are allowed to to sort of make their fake noises. If the whole thing is a sham. It's still bad for Senate Republican. That's true right now. The the because I mean in this era of nationalized voting right everything turns on the national narrative and one really interesting thing will to track will be whether they're those marginal senators privately go to McConnell and say we really need a real We need a real proceeding at least something more or than just a quick fifty one vote now right and if that happens of course then they run more risks in addition right. That's that's really the spot they're in so I mean I guess the in terms of messaging it seems like the thing that Democrats can do that could be most effective. Active is just to continue to spotlight the facts right. I mean look how quickly the debate shifted when Schumer just sent that one letter now. I think there's an argument that that shows. They should have been doing it more more aggressively earlier but it just goes to show you that just one. There's if there's one thing that the press can get right on this stuff it's a cover up or not cover. I'm right right do house. Democrats have any substantive role to play with their own powers Going going forward now that they've passed the articles so I think there's all this talk about them holding onto the impeachment and not sending it over one thing one reason I'm a little skeptical optical of that and I'm happy to be told I'm wrong about this you know there's been a lot of criticism of leadership for doing it too quickly for doing it. Too narrowly and so forth. I was for for a broader impeachment. I would've been happy to have a little longer or somewhat longer but I really wonder whether there's a genuine risk of some of these moderate starting to drop off off if it if it drags on right now. I don't know what happens from the point of view of those moderate members. If you pass the articles through the House the impeachments done and then you hold it. I suspect that they'd still not like that right. Because what they want is for took pushed over to the Senate I mean they want the hot potato out of their exact hands. But I'm going to switch metaphors. There's no such thing as half pregnant with impeachment Schmidt right you can't vote for the resolution that sets the rules of impeachment And then learn all this horrible stuff and then vote against impeachment. Which is why you know you? You have a basically unanimous democratic caucus voting for the articles of impeachment. Having voted for them. If more bad news comes to light about trump nick more evidence that he committed further impeachable offenses comes too late. You don't get to you. Don't save yourself anything by ignoring them. You've already voted for the impeachment. If you're scared the the voters in your district are going to be mad at you for that. It's that that ship has sailed it's overwrite so there's an argument that I think leadership should make to them though like we should press what we have to our fullest advantage and if that means is Holding more hearings damage trump. That's good for all democrats If that means You know holding the articles impeachment in order to make a stink about About the fact that the Senate majority leader has already announced. He wants to read the trial. That's all all to the better like the the the hard part is over the you know they are already You know going to be Identified in ads ads or whatever and Republican campaigns in the fall has members who voted to impeach trump. It's already happened so it reminds me in a weird way of back when Congress was debating the affordable care act and in Democrats were agonizing over whether they should do a public option or not or a national exchange versus a state based health insurance exchange and it was just so beside. The point is like it's obamacare either. You're going to vote for Obamacare or against it so stop agonizing over the little details If you decided that you need to vote for this because it's the right thing to do but you're scared about the political consequences down the line. The picayune details details aren't GonNa be what what causes you problem. It's going to be the vote. Will the votes done. So now. Just you know. Make the most of it That's sort of how I see it I I guess. I'm curious for your thoughts on that. Well I just want to try and step back and and raise a bigger point about all of this. I think we're almost pinning too much on some of this process stuff we know he's getting acquitted. Right we know that's going to happen. Okay we would like there to be a trial that's real. I think we don't know whether even if that happened. How much we would get from Bolton and Mulvaney although I would love to see it tried right so I don't? I don't know that that we can actually expect too much of a range of options at the end of this chapter right here right to me what I think really matters. There's more as what happens after the impeachment on the equival. Right if the Democrats continue to prosecute this stuff in court if they try to you know get testimony from people. Oh and by the way to go back to the point you raised before the possibility of other things breaking. You know. There's this I think there's a sort of illusion out there that this ends with trump's trump's acquittal right it doesn't I mean all these Republicans who vote no on the articles in the House and all the Republicans who vote to acquit. The Senate and. I think it's almost certainly going to be near unanimous in both right. Yeah what really is going to end up mattering over the long. Longterm is what comes out after and I think there's a extremely good chance we're GONNA get incredibly big revelations down the line that are at least as bad as the ones we already know the trial unless something unexpected happens and who knows maybe by the time you listen to this We'll be in a very different place but the trials probably going to start Artan early January. So we're talking a couple of weeks to To communicate to as much of the country as possible that Senate Republicans are going to try to short circuit witness testimony to complete a cover up for Donald Trump. How do you get the message out there? If you're the Democratic Party you know everyone's going to scatter the four To the four winds in and people are going to be with their families on Christmas and new years. And how do you. How out of you before before Mitch? McConnell manages to get that vote done. How do you get the word out in this environment on the short timeframe well? I don't really have an answer to that and I don't think anybody does right. I mean the information environment is really screwed up right now unless you're running official proceedings. You can't really get the sort of punch that you need..

"We need to show that they can get things done in Washington but if you if you if you draw the like that like the fallacy is pretty obvious there right okay. So why don't they just pass everything that Donald Trump wants. It'll prove that they can get things done. Of course that means Donald Trump will become more popular and suddenly their ability to hold on to their districts. Democrats ability to hold the House Democrats ability to beat trump in the election and starts deteriorating right so like at some level down to how much of an emergency do you think we're in right and the frustration. Is that Pelosi and some of these other Democrats crats are not treating this like it's sufficient emergency right. It's an it is to my mind and emergency that overrides. All other policy goals right. We have eleven eleven months to decide whether we're going to continue to be a liberal democracy or not and whether or not you got a better deal in prescription drug prices the prescription drug prices are really important. But they're actually not as important as that. Yeah so I I actually think about this in almost the exact same way is that if Democrats rats are going to like cut if they're going to quote cut deals with trump They really ought to be a one shot deal. You're not gonNA have a second. The second chance to to get this done. That really advanced the ball on some progressive goal and They should also be issues issues. Sort of code as a Democratic Party issues so like I traced out a hypothetical that if trump were willing to pair a big minimum wage hike. Fifteen dollars minimum wage. Whatever in order to get this trade deal done like I'd probably get there? I think that that ends. You know you you get so much out of it that it might be worth it. And it's clear that trump gave some to get some and so it's not just a a straight victory for him but if you don't have that kind of You know situation at hand If the benefits are marginal or if you think that future Democratic president can do as well or better than you just don't do it right like this is not cutting the same trade deal with Mitt Romney it would be totally unremarkable of Democrats. were making this deal with Mitt Romney But in a world with democracy under threat and the US president is the single biggest part of that threat then handing him easily spun on victories. That validate key parts of his message. Seems like such an obvious mistake that I'm kind of stunned and I WANNA go back to this idea of despair that I was talking about about earlier because you know it's it's obviously not just me right. I mean I wrote this thing because I had this sort of ambien sense that it was happening The reaction to it was has got a ton of feedback from other people who are feeling the same thing. Recently I started reaching out to therapists to talk to them about what their patients are saying about trump I lasted this in the run up to the election I started talking to therapists about patients who had a lot of anxiety that trump would win the election. It's kind of heartbreaking. Because one way that they helped them manage that anxiety was to help them. See how unlikely that possibility was. She's obviously not possible anymore. Right so I've been talking to therapists pissed. You know in in blue parts of the country but who say that trump comes up in almost for some of them. Trump comes up in almost every session right and and I was just talking to somebody this morning. Who was telling me that She feels like people have moved from the state of hyper Hyper vigilance to a state of despair and that despair is I mean. It's dangerous for them but it's dangerous for all of us. We cannot ah go into election with are people feeling that By the way she was saying that some of the people that she treats they're having the hardest time with what's happening are are Holocaust survivors. And so I think that our people the people who are going to hopefully have a chance to save democracy In eleven months. They need to feel like they have a champion. They need to feel like there's somebody who recognizes the scale of the emergency who recognizes is. How terrified they are and who can stand up for them and inasmuch as we have everybody focused on this little tiny demographic slivers hours of these front-line districts? I don't think we have that and I think it's it's really really dangerous before wrapping it up. I did want to talk to little bit about the trial. What you anticipate it looking like stipulating that Sitting here we don't think that there's anywhere close to twenty the republican votes to remove him. What do you think it looks like? Are you concerned about these murmurings among moderate Democrats. They might prefer censure rather than impeachment. Of course I'm concerned terrified and I mean it's it's it's so self defeating it makes it makes my head want to explode. I mean I cannot fathom why they think that kind of getting to this point and then let essentially leading donald trump off the hook would be You know an a good idea not just for a good for the country but ultimately a good idea for them but the other thing that concerns me about the Senate trial With Bill Clinton's Senate trial. I think there was three witnesses called. I would be surprised if there's even that many I mean from what I've read there's you know there's trump who wants to turn it into a big circus and try to call hundred Biden and try to call all these other people in some sense. I feel like that would be the better situation for Democrats. Go find you call Hunter Biden but we're also calling Rudolph Giuliani and we're also calling. You know life partners and all these other figures a trial in which kind of nobody's but he's called and it's just kind of a bunch of Senate floor speeches seems really anticlimactic all right. Let's leave it there. Michelle Goldberg. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. That's it for this week. By next week's episode. The impeachment of Donald Trump should be complete and we will be awaiting the trial of Donald Donald Trump in the United States senate. That trial probably won't begin until January But that doesn't mean everything will be on hold until then there's another transcript out there. The Democrats want to see this one between Ukrainian President Vladimir's Alinsky and vice president. Mike pence so the chase is on for that will also likely learn whether and when the supreme cream court will hear arguments over president. Trump's challenges to all these subpoenas of his financial records and one silver lining of a narrow impeachment investigation.
