"To enable to serve in the congress because i could see on a day-to-day basis. The difference that one member of congress can make in people's lives Whether it's a child or you know a veteran or you know a senior trying to get their social security on a day to day basis. And i think that there there are opportunities and i think those opportunities have been highlighted by the fact that we've had four years of the trump administration and offers an opportunity to set the scales back again. And to you know i think that they're just like post watergate. I'm a post watergate in a young person and there were opportunities to make reforms so that we didn't repeat those same mistakes. I think we can do those two so that we can have some deep systemic structural changes. That will make sure that we don't have a repeat of some of the abuses that i have taken place Over these last four years. That's a positive because it means the government can work in also that we could. We're closing out this election. I think not having blown up our entire system and Showing that in fact we could have a free fair insecure election where fifty million people cast their votes for against somebody and we will have a peaceful transfer of power. Just like we've done for the last whatever it is two hundred and twenty three years Those are really positive things because it shows the resilience of our system and so i actually have confidence that we can actually then tackle some of the big problems because we know that structurally were sound. I guess it's been hit by an atom bomb and it still survived. Yeah i'm not sure. He was the worst president in history. You could probably go back. But i would say of modern times but it really sustained a direct hit and stayed afloat freight and and and the fact is that We learned a lot this and we're not perfect either. So i mean we still have a lot of problems out there but we know that we have a system that functions in a way that we have some prospect six of them. You know. I remember a friend of mine. does twenty five years ago intern at a senator's office in dc. And she knew somebody from strong thurman and asked one time. How does that guy keep getting reelected. I mean he's he ran on being segregation racist and the person working his office said everyone gets a callback. Everyone if you voted for him or you didn't you got a pothole. You gotta light out water. Everyone gets a callback. They thought that that personal touch just goes such a long way even for some like him right. I want to get back to a time where there was a time where everybody said where people said my member of congress i just think the rest of them are horrible but now we're at a time where people say all of them are horrible and so we need to like sort of inch back to a place where we actually believe in the people who represent us and that they really are represented representing our interests and that we feel confident that they can do the job so that we don't have to we're representative government representative republic so we don't have to pay attention to every single minute of every single day right that it works while congresswoman donna edwards.

"Biden. And a Democratic Senate will take this on and take it on from day. One You know I've given some thought. When I was in the Senate I did a number of things one of them was crisis intervention training, which is training cops to understand when they've entered a situation. That's a little out of control because of a mental illness, but part of what that teaches is de escalation. We need to do a whole bunch of stuff including we need data. There's data of this kind of abuses that we have a national data that the F.. B. I. Runs, but only forty percent of police report to it. and. We need to require that they do. Right I mean look I think that we have to make change on multiple levels I mean I recall when back in the. Nineties, I was doing. Developing, police, training, tools and training. Law Enforcement About. The things that they were doing that resulted in women, not feeling comfortable, coming forward and reporting domestic violence, or how they responded on a scene when I think over the last thirty years we've made tremendous progress in really retraining and helping police think differently culturally about their response to domestic violence. It is not perfect, but it is way different than it was thirty years ago, but that's thirty years and it. Lot of it came through federal funding that than provided funding to local law enforcement to be able to. Really engage. It came through in multiple years of not just training once, but training and retraining retraining to really change. And so I know that this is hard work. But, we gotta start somewhere, and I think that you know. There are billions of dollars federal dollars that go into state and local law enforcement all across the country every year and we need to start conditioning some of that funding. On making these changes. There are things that we can do I mean in terms of a database, I mean if we had a net a really national registry of law enforcement officers who were let go in one department, then committed some heinous act, and they were let go, and then they go five ten miles down the road and they get hired in another department well..

Biden rallies establishment in bid to turn back Sanders

"Biden Wins. Every county in South Carolina from the hills to the C. Colossal victory in the first representative state. Is this the second day of the rest of his political life? Well it certainly feels that way. I mean look at the last forty eight hours. You have money which he hasn't had you've had endorsements you have people on the hill rallying around him. There's a Russian expression I think Peter might know it Success has its own aroma. That when you start winning that something happens that there's sort of an aura. People wanted to see him win. It's not just that he won one really big. And the the proportion of the African American vote the way he dominated constituency which is so important in a Democratic primary centene incredibly powerful message to people who had been wavering about him Peter Baker I recall a donald trump using biden's name a time or two in the past. Have you any evidence about how the president is processing the Biden Victory in South Carolina? I'm really what it may mean for the rest of the race. Look I think we know that the president would rather see Bernie Sanders. He's Kinda Telegraph that as his opponent. Candidates are notoriously bad picking their opposition. They they may not always have the right decision on that. But I see the contrast between the socialist and his version of capitalism as advantageous choice for the fall so tonight at the Rally. You heard him go. After Biden. Newly Resurgent Biden. Pretty harsh terms. He mocked him as feeble minded. Kind of has been ridiculed the vice president for his verbal gaffes lately confusing names saying that could be tomorrow's Super Thursday instead of Tuesday that kind of thing and he seemed to relish it but at the same night is trying to stir the pot. He's trying to get the sanders supporters. Upset whatever happens if he would lose if he were to lose. The president is saying is because it was a coup. That was the phrase there. Were he used today? I think on twitter because he wants to say they're the establishment is stealing it from Bernie Sanders in his view. He wins either way. He gets a candidate he wants and Bernie Sanders and a stark choice. Or you know. He gets a moderate Democrat to face but makes the laughter try get the left anyway. Upset BECAUSE BERNIE. Sanders did get what he says is fair do congresswoman. It's hard to imagine and fast forward through the history of the Democratic Party to a time where there has been one colossal consensus figure in the Democratic Party coming off his historic two-term presidency. He and the former first lady are often at the very top of opinion polls for most admired man. Most admired woman talk about the Barack Obama effect potentially on this election. Well I think it's a significant effect and I don't think it just rest with president former President Obama. I think you know when you look at people who were central to the Obama Administration now coming out in support of Joe Biden. That is in some ways telegraphing where the OBAMAS are and so. This shouldn't be a surprise me. We in some ways it would be kind of odd. Obviously if Vice President Biden didn't get the support of these allies of President Obama. We'd be all over that that. I do know Susan. Rice endorsed today among others. Well she did and I think that you know when you look at the range of endorsers especially today from Susan Rice and shoring up the foreign policy backing Joe Biden on domestically to have better work. Stand there along with Buddha judge or with char that makes a huge difference. Those are big signals sometimes. Endorsements don't matter at all in a campaign and we overestimate that but these were big Carolina. I'd like to read from you. The work of Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns over at your outfit very simply. The headline tells the story frozen in anxiety. How Democratic leaders leaders struggled to confront Bernie Sanders What is the story mean for the future potentially of the Democratic Party? Well it means a couple of things one if you look at that story part of the reason that they had a difficult time building consensus at that point around. Biden is because the campaign was really bad. The candidate was not reaching out to people as obvious as Harry Reid. The money was not coming in. Joe Biden was running in a very old fashioned way. He didn't have the base of say small donors and I think that story gets that and I think everyone should read. It is really the tension that might erupt if the Democrats are successful in kind of building up Biden as the Anti Bernie and prevailing like do they risk alienating. Some of the young people especially young men have gotten excited about Bernie Sanders to your first point. Sometimes people just like to be asked Harry. Reid came out in the last twenty four hours and endorsed but as they say that would have been nice lovely before the primary in his State. But actually you're raising a good point because today. I don't know if you've heard Biden's remarks he asked for people's help. He asked for their support. So somebody is sort of getting that message to him and Dunn Edwards a blatantly political question. What do you do about the split in the party? What do you do if you arrive at your convention? You'll be there and Bernie Sanders has slightly more of the delegates and that there's a group that wants to nominate Joe by first of all. I hope that we actually don't get to that point because I think it is really difficult. One and I would urge Democrats to stop running the Anti Bernie Campaign. They can run a campaign that elevates Joe Biden support coalescence around Joe Biden without sort of putting a knife in the Bernie Sanders supporters. I think that would be wrong for our party. And it certainly will not help us coming out of the Convention to have fully United Party. I mean Bernie has said that he's committed to that and I actually believe him on that point and I don't think he's GonNa be used as a pawn by Donald Trump. Should he not get the nomination but exit and that kind of exit is really important and so we have to figure that out? And I don't know yet whether burning might have enough to go into the convention and consolidate support and get the nomination. That could still happen. I do think for all you viewers watched Texas if Joe Biden does really well there I think in in Bernie a does well on Super Tuesday but Joe Biden has enough reason in enough momentum to to really challenge him in a number of places. I think there's a really good shot that we go and I'm not just saying this because I've dreamed about it as a reporter forever but that we go to a convention and have a contested convention you guys are on different teams just simply just because the anxiety for anti I get it. Zantac sales will spike Peter. I've got a tweet from Aaron. Blake over at the Washington Post again to keep things fair. Republican members of Congress haven't sent one tweet or press release mentioning Burris Ma or Hunter Biden since February seventh per alleged storm. One day after Biden Win South Carolina. Senator Johnson of Wisconsin sends this letter on a Sunday. No less Sometimes Peter the Republicans are Director. Never Ironic fifth well. Look you know. Burris wasn't necessary in the Republican. Playbook when Biden was down and out he was a fourth-place fifth-place finisher and the early primary states and they had bigger fish to fry at that point. It was Michael Bloomberg on the rise Bernie Sanders on the rise. They were focused on them. Now Biden of course is resurgent. You're going to hear a lot. More about Burris men Hunter Biden. And that's something that Democrats have to take into consideration is they picked their nominee because it is a subject. They're going to have to address the fall. If Joe Biden is their nominee either got to figure out how they're going to answer it how they're going to defend against going explain it. Some of these things can be dismissed as well. President trump was exaggerating. But there are some things that are genuinely troubling to a lot of voters even Democrats who have been disturbed by by some of what they've seen so this is a big factor in a way the Republicans are trying to stir the pot here before Super Tuesday. But it's a reminder that we're playing we're not playing ball and this is going to be a big contest come the fall. Whoever's the nominee Peter you're around to cover the Obama White House year among the former presidents biographers when people ask you what you saw of the relationship between President and Vice President? How easy was the relationship that kind of thing? How do you answer? That's a good question. I didn't start off that easy. In fact these are two very different kinds of personalities. They came from different generations. Different backgrounds different experience levels different introvert extrovert kind of ways of dealing with people but over the years they were together they really did bond in a pretty significant way. I think certainly you saw that by the time. Beau Biden died and Barack Obama gave the eulogy at the funeral. That was about as close a bonding moment as you can imagine between two political figures that doesn't necessarily mean he. He thought that Barack Oh so he thought that Joe Biden necessarily the best candidate to run this year. I think the Rock Obama had his concerns but now that we're facing a choice between Bernie Sanders and one other candidate. You can sorta see as as you put it as Kelly and her colleagues wrote the subtle hand of of Obama coming into play here which clearing the field to some extent of the the other Moderate alternatives that is a biden versus sanders. Kind of contest. Everybody Strap in Super Tuesday star. Hours are great thanks to Peter Baker to Caroline Ryan to Donna Edwards for starting off on manic

Iran attacks Iraqi bases housing US troops in retaliation for Soleimani's death

"Breaking news out of Iraq where we have confirmation that Iran has launched missiles missile strikes to Iraqi basis at least two Iraqi basis that also house. US forces we have no confirmation yet of the assessment of damage or casualties around the state media is now saying that Eh. They launched these two rounds of missile strikes. And this is I think important and really actually crucial we think about this moment around saying there's no there's no retaliation for America For the latest attacks. Then they will stop attacking but if America tax than their response will be crushing and widespread. It seems to me that this is a calculation nation here by the Iranian regime. At least and getting to some point that does not further. Climb up the escalatory ladder that we have now been on for quite some time and is threatening to plunged the entire region into valuable war joining me now former Republican congressman from Oklahoma Mickey Edwards. Former chair of the House Republican Policy Committee and former Democratic Congressman from Maryland. Donna Edwards also with me Sam Cedar host the majority were podcast and MSNBC Contributor Angelina Maxwell host of signal boost on Sirius Xm and an MSNBC political analyst. Donna let me start with you the the way that we talk about. This tends to resolve revolve around the president. What decision when will he make? and WHO's influencing but America's democratic nation with the constitution that gives the power to declare war the the Congress United States represents this democratic nation. All of its citizens citizens should not be in the hands of one man particularly one man with the faculties that the current president has it seems to me extremely important that across Democrat and Republican particularly Democratic Party Democrat. Cows come out strongly to say no war with Iran. This is madness and do whatever they can to halt escalation is that a possibility ability as UCLA. I do think that there will be in there. Already have been tonight really strong voices coming from speaker. Pelosi herself that we do not want a war with Iran and very sadly this is so reminiscent of where we've been before and I think it's also important for the American American people to step up and declare that there should be no war with Iran and we are at a place where you know. There's a possibility that there could be some some de escalation but it requires seen voices and cool heads to preside both in the White House which I don't expect but certainly coming out with a strong voice from Democrats in the in the Congress and I would expect others who do not want to continue. You need to put service men and women in harm's way and to jeopardize the safety of of the American People Mickey you know there's been an interesting Fisher Asia and the Republican and Conservative collision on this question We we've seen it sort of break out in the open. Sometimes rampaul was on our air earlier. Senator from Kentucky urging us not to enter into worth around. There are some conservative commentators. WHO HAVE THE president's ear who also said the same? This seems to me kind of testing ground of that. What do you you expect to see from Republicans on the hill? Well if we stay with what they have been saying for. Many many years is that we should be very cautious. Che's about going into war but they're the bigger issue here is what you were talking about Chris. So I would hope that the congress is able to back the president op and not have is go into a major war but it's also important that Congress start reasserting its primacy in the field of international affairs primacy in in terms of deciding when we go to war because it's not just this war but with this man in the in the White House or frankly any president the idea that the congress would step by now. You were the democratic voice. Chris you've been talking about and that the Congress would back off and let any president just on his own whim or any other reason take take the country into war is unacceptable and it's time Republicans and Democrats both came together on that one issue. It just crazy to me to view what's happening right now. Does this thing that just happening out there. In the world like we're we live in a democratic society precisely so that we can exert some control and and that's part of constitutional designed by design the founders constitutional design that there are some democratic control. I mean the idea that regardless of what we have in terms of casualties that we must must respond is absurd. We have agency people are going to call for de-escalation. They're either going to call for now tonight or they're going to do it. Eighteen years from now after after what we've been in Iraq and so the bottom line is every single. Democratic presidential candidate should tonight come out and say no war with Iran every single member of the Democratic Caucus in the house and the Senate should be backing the bills by Tim Kaine am by Sanders and Kana in the House and stopping funding and stopping topping the legal auspicies for this war. Somebody's skills worse than Iraq because at least with the Iraq war in two thousand three there was a reason they put forward a reason season and so an American citizen say while there's WMD's now it turned out that that was a lie right but there wasn't articulated reason that the administration collectively is trying to put forward to tell the American people. This is why we're doing this. I have no idea why this is happening Chris. The American people likely do not understand why we are on on the brink of war with Iran and I agree with Sam. All of the Democratic candidates have a chance to step forward in this moment and show that they can be competent. They can be strong and stand on principle there. There is no reason for this and this moment we need to stay take a step back a giant step back over this cannot be a partisan listen moment the Republicans in Congress have to do the same thing. They took the same oath of office. They swore to uphold the same constitution and adjust having Democrats oppose. What's happening what the war is about without any information here but but they can't do it alone? Republicans have to say in this this case this is American lives at risk and we are going to take back the constitutional power. The Congress has the it can't be just a democratic down the the politics of of this which in some senses seemed secretaries. We await at this moment to find out if there were casualties. Both among the Iraqi against Iraqi servicemembers emmers on these Iraqi bases or American service members but of course the politics matter because the politics are part of what will produce the outcomes that happen and the decision that gets made. I mean again. This is all part of Democratic Self Governance. It does seem to me that the war weariness is very real thing it shows up in the polling. It showed up on the campaign trail. There's very very little appetite. Wait for a war with Iran. If you pull that question and even the airstrike against Sulejmani which a to my mind. Reckless escalation along this trajectory was was essentially partisan split. Like do you trust. The Democrats will have the courage of their convictions about how they navigate this. Well I have to say I mean I do you. I mean I remember you know the lead up to the Iraq war in two thousand and whatever it was three four and you know people believe the evidence that was in front of them. I never believed it. But even in the face of thousands and thousands of people taking to the streets still legislators felt a need to like go right up and march toward war. We cannot afford that to have that outcome again. And I think it's incumbent on members of Congress but the American people have to speak up and we know that they're worried because they wanted to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan in and out of the region all along now here. We are escalating again. And it's time to put a put the brakes on this coming. Both from the Congress in terms of them exercising their authorities Mickey had said but also coming from the American people saying we do not want another war in that region Gen Party. The ball is in the in the hands of the people themselves the power to declare war being Congress means that the people are supposed to make these decisions and this is what they have to show up a child meetings APP to contact their members of Congress and they have to be hurt and there should be a vote. I mean there's going to be a partner. Solution says there's going to be privileged privileged resolution and there should be there should be a vote in the United States. Senate absolutely not say I am struck by how many democratic politicians look I have very little expectations of Republicans at this point. I'm sorry about that but I am struck. By how few how how little maturation there seems to be when I look at the democratic accredit politicians who are coming out there and equivocating at this point because the American public has grown since two thousand two and to a certain extent I remember that time time vividly millions of people who are in those streets at that time and the fact is there was a lot of people who are shell shocked after nine eleven that Shell shock does not exist amongst the American American public anymore but you look at the eyes of a lot of these democratic politicians and they look like deers. If your headlights they need to lead to fight back against what is off. Obviously an attempt to draw this country into war by. Who's you know what who who's driving this bus? It's unclear but it but we cannot allow the the idea that the president of the United States can Willy Nilly create provocations. That dragged this country into this type of quagmire again. The American people have to understand why why we're entering into a military conflict. They don't know that tonight and that's a really big problem. And the communication here. I mean we just go back to say what the facts are on the ground in terms of the the latest loop. There was an attack outside Kirkuk a rocket attack there have been increasing rocketfire Adam at American forces from Shia militias in Iraq. Starting in October Tober Brett mcgurk said that hadn't happened. Eight years that part that itself was part of a escalatory cycle that started with the withdrawal from the Iran deal that kills an American American contractor back in December outside Kirkuk and killed an American contractor wounded several American service members there was a retaliatory strike by the US. It Killed Twenty five Shia militia militia members in Iraq and then that storm the embassy which was essentially disbursed with no casualties and then in response to that wildly provocative talkative s escalating act of taking out killing Qassem solely money. So that is that is the situation that has bras tonight to these reports of ground-to-ground missile. Fire from the Iranian government directed at Iraqi basis that whole both Amar Iraqi service members and American service members Donald. What do you think is happening right now? We have reports that Vice President Pence has briefed Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Pelosi tweeted tweeted out. She's closely monitoring the situation falling bombings targeting. US troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our service members including ending needless provocations

The Art of being the Donald Welcome to you both congresswoman I'd like to begin with you this was it strikes me another day in a series of days wide ranging comments from the president make of them what you may but a whole bunch of them that we have I wrote repeat it on this broadcast tonight no response no response machine on the part of the Democrats the uncomfortable question I have for you you is we see impeachment rising in the polls is it rising because of or in spite of your political party well I actually think that When Nancy Pelosi announced the beginning of the impeachment in Korean put some focus on this question of this Ukraine scandal and the president's strong arming the president of Ukraine that that actually drew the public's attention to the president's bad behavior his unlawful behavior and I think that you can see from that time forward that support in the general public is beginning to increase teach me and I think this is the danger zone for the president because the more that he's stonewalls the more that he continues to look as though he's hiding something thing then I think that he really digs himself into a hole and this notion that somehow the congress the House is operating out side of the constitution is really just hogwash to kind of monkey up the precedings and I don't think Democrats should be distracted by that they should move forward and if Republicans if the president decides that he doesn't want to cooperate in this investigation then he will just layer on the the charges that will be made against him in any articles of impeachment so Tim O'Brien I'm assuming you didn't believe the president's faint today that if if the Democrats alling to be fair he'll go along yeah I don't think the president is going to go along regardless of what the Democrats do I think that was written in the in the stars along ago and I think you know we're in the midst of a constitutional crisis constitutional crisis exists if the constitution is not specific about certain actions the Congress should take and if you have players who are in the midst of this who are going to see things Ceuta the end regardless of what the constitution says and you've got a president who's willing to step into that Accu and he's backed by a party that's willing to take him down that road with them and I think trump's not only unlawful he's lawless in the sense that he doesn't really care about boundaries and he doesn't really care about rules that was true in his business life it's been true during his presidency and he now occupies an office that protects him from some of the guidelines put in place to rein in unlawful behavior you think I don't I don't think there's any doubt that the house is going to impeach him I think there's probably I have no doubt that the Senate is going to let it go and I think it's ironic and and sad and tragic comic that you've got the Senate up in arms over what's happened in north in northern Syria which they should be here's this wasn't necessarily the president being out of bounds the president didn't consult him the president didn't bring him into the process the president didn't honor Z.? Graham in this moment in the way that Lindsey Graham felt he should rather than Lindsey Graham I think leaning back on good conservative principles about how the president it should observe the rule of law and being outraged going back months and the way before now congresswoman we watch Luende Hausky all but dance on the witness title without fear and without consequence in front of the House Judiciary Committee Democrats are GONNA turn around now and start enforcing stuff and saying no no no under the constitution we are to be the prevailing power here while I do think that Democrats have some control over this process and you know I'm very critical of the way that some of these hearings have been conducted I think if there are GonNa be public hearings than Democrats need to really focus on having a single we'll skilled litigator asking questions of the witness so that Lewandowski would not be able to get away with the kinds of things that he did when you've got this you know partisan back and back and forth going on in the Committee so Democrats have control of the process and I've said before that I think that speaker does he needs to own this process because it will define them and I think that she has been and now the question is how you get from here to there in short order but very efficiently and doing the work to ensure that their articles of impeachment and frankly it doesn't matter to me if the Senate chooses not to remove this lawless president the act of impeaching the president is important enough to say you know what the president may not followed boundaries but the American people have

"Today's release of the notes of the call by the White House confirms this behavior which undermines the integrity of our election the dignity of any presidency and our national security when they look at the information. it's a joke. impeachment for that. when you have a wonderful meeting or you have a wonderful phone conversation. president trump and house speaker Nancy Pelosi with very different reactions to the release of that rough transcript of this call with Ukraine's president the summer as house Democrats to launch a formal impeachment inquiry and it's time now for our Sunday group rich Lowry of National Review model a lazy of Georgetown university's institute of politics and public service former democratic congresswoman Donna Edwards and fox news correspondent Gillian Turner wretch how much trouble is Donald Trump and what are the chances for impeachment what are the chances for wind mobile well I I think he's obviously in trouble and there's some idea that he wants to be in peace or welcomes the politics of the impeachment and from people talk to and it's what you see in public he hates the idea of being a peachy doesn't want this to happen and I think what happened this week last week as Nancy Pelosi is really pushed by her own caucus and became unsustainable for her publicist anymore but I think it's a sign of weakness that you didn't have a vote on the house floor to actual actually open the impeachment inquiry the way you did with Nixon and with Clinton and that's a sign would be a very narrow partisan vote may be offered for some remembers and I just think this is improper the preservation of done it but if he was impeached and removed on the basis of anything like this universe of possible fax it would blowholes legitimacy and the center of our politics that wouldn't be healed for years the right way to do this the po the present one to go there's an election twelve months from now Chile and you'll have that advantage over all of us you actually worked in the National Security Council under bald bush forty three and bomb us I want to ask you a couple of any I could have to go to work quickly specific things about what stands out what stands out for you about the phone call what stands out for you about the president's handling of the aid and what stands out for you about the president's use off the box of several private attorneys so the first point quick. play on the transcript and a lot of hay being made about the fact that White House officials ordered the transcript move from a top secret system to an even more highly classified code word system. way way and not enough information is known at this point to make a determination that was problematic people are saying that move is unprecedented it's not people are saying it shows an improved in and of itself there was a cover up it doesn't that happens is done what about the call itself the call itself what stuck out to me about the call in terms of things that were problematic was Rudy Giuliani's involvement running point man on Ukraine anytime you have somebody who's not a government official purporting to represent the United States purporting to represent the president it's highly unethical not saying it's illegal not saying it's impeachable obviously that's not for me to decide but it is unethical and I think that's what the administration is gonna have to contend with now if they're not upset with Giuliani already they're about to me and what about the fact that the state department the Pentagon at all sad Congress but but the site out and the fact that the president sometime in July just before the phone call goes against all of the men's with holds the aid and that makes this call to the president how troubling is that to you well we don't know if it's true yeah it right I think presumably the investigation Congress's investigate without the aid we do know that that we know that he was held the aid and we know what he said on the phone call reportedly but there's the correlation has not been proven yet that's what the congressional inquiry will get to congresswoman Edwards speaker because he didn't want to go down the road of impeachment and she now has decided to and you have some problems with the process of having six committees all do their thing why well I mean first of all I think that the speaker didn't want to do this and she went down this road because the president actually forced her hand and I think that the process has to be really narrowly can circumscribed it's really important not to spread it across six committees six chairman six different investigations I do think the later the move later in the week to try to contain this within the intelligence committee is probably a smart one. but you know we need to I I think we need one lawyer one committee one chairman asking questions you know in a sequence that really make sense of the American people can understand what happened so that Congress can get to some of the real answers the president's focus at least part of this focus in all of this apparently was to dig up dirt on Joe Biden who at the time of the phone call perhaps not so much now was his Claire top rival the front runner for the democratic nomination here is former vice president Biden this week. it seems to me it's awful hard to avoid the conclusion that it is an impeachable offense and a violation of constitutional responsibility well I don't ask a legal question I want to ask you a political question there is no hard evidence that that either as I presented to to Steven Miller that either Biden aura son did anything illegal but you've got to admit it sure looks bad that when Joe Biden as vice president of the United States that hunter Biden his son is doing business with all of these countries that Joe Biden is also doing doing business web I mean it it seems to be just kind of a perfect example of the swamp well that's what the president's hoping for right the facts we do know is that hunter Biden went to work for this company or to consult for this company but all the allegations of corruption against this company took place two years before that we know that we know that the vice president and others in the Obama administration specifically when after the prosecutor force for pulling back on its invest on the Ukrainian investigation not for being too aggressive for not being aggressive enough and tying foreign aid to that we know that much so but I ministry of the apparent political right so this is what the president's trying to hear the president now is one of the few lifelines he has right now is to obfuscate and confuse and make this look like some sort of false equivalency here there is not the reality is that the president went to the Ukrainian government and ask them for help that would benefit him politically forget about the whistleblower for a second the president admitted it and the White House released a memo that corroborate the conversation got thirty seconds left how damaging to Joe by I think it's pretty damaging the the arrangement was hunter was corrupt not any legal sense but this is the worst aspect of our public life that if you're in some proximity to power people thrown. money at you for nothing and he got sixty thousand dollars a month from this company just on the basis of it being the vice president's son and of Biden is an army of have a lot of doubts for trump with hammer this every single day all right and we have to take a break here when we come back Iranian president Hassan Rouhani did not meet with president trump this week at the U. N. we sat down for a wide ranging interview will play the highlights and.

"There. Could could very well be before before. There was a net roots nation. There was still a couple of times that people would get together in the very early stages of the of the what became net roots nation. So when people you know, it was there weren't as many bloggers. There weren't as many people doing things for progressive was just the forming. It was just starting to form and Donna Edwards at the time had she worked for organization. I can't remember the name of it, but it was before she was had run for congress, and she put something together in Georgia and on on a little island off the coast of Georgia. And I went to that and and that and she introduced me to Joel. So that goes way way back to maybe twenty, oh five or something like that. That was quite an exciting weekend for me because I met a lot of people who I only knew from, you know, my contacts with them online, right? I met first time that way, and I got. A little early a day or two early. I don't know why did that. But I did and I went and and I went, I wouldn't say, I can't remember the name. I went on a little boat out into the ocean, and it's just sort of like a just a little tiny boat of me in this. This woman who was also a blogger and and it capsized. Or I fell out of it. She says she was okay, so didn't catch. I just fell out of the boat and and then I didn't know this at the time that that this island is the breeding ground. The biggest breeding ground on the east coast for tiger sharp. No, I wasn't aware that, but I did see all these dorsal fins headed my way and I was like petrified. But it turned out they were porpoises dolphins, which which were were I? I mean, people told me after that they were there to protect me. So that was that was the very moment. Anyway, I'm getting off track and you know a little bit a little bit freaked out about hearing about Joel. But you know, once someone gets pancreatic cancer and enjoy with had it for quite some time and it was in very, very late stage. Now, you know, you know what the ending is going to be. Yeah. Yeah, it's still, you know, even though we knew it was coming, I felt like, you know, a gut punch, right it right to my stomach. When I heard this morning, I was actually sitting in a doctor's office and I just saw it on my phone and I just it hit me hard knowing it was coming and you know, and you. And I think you know, say they are, but for. The grace of whatever you believe in. I mean, we're both cancer survivors. I think how easily it could have been me and it's just it's just so random, you know, cancer SOX. Yup, just so what what would have been very happy about is something that some news I got today? Okay. So head Lou. Ted lieu is doing a series of campaign. He's he's a west coast, vice chair of the d triple seat. Each each region has a has a west coast vice chair. They were elected by the members, and none of them are doing anything except heads. Literally, none of them are doing anything. I just called up. I don't know. Like fifteen candidates, not candidate's campaign managers, and I asked them, have you have you had much contact with your d, triple c, vice chair. Each of them said, what's that? Or who's that none of zero. None of them had except on the west coast. None of them had any contact with any vice chair, not on the east coast, not in the south, not in the mid west. They're even have one for the for Texas and that area. So you know, so they do nothing. They just have the title, literally nothing. I mean, they don't even know the candidates go campaign manages. So when I say nothing, I mean nothing except on the west coast and every single one of them new Ted and and said staff and they, you know, they all were raving..

"I want to bring in Howard fineman fellow writer who has covered many of these issues and former Maryland congresswoman, Donna Edwards, Donna, how do you view the significance of this? Well, I mean, I think it is true that Allan Weisselberg actually could be the thing that around which all of these investigations actually come to a convergence. And I mean he is the money guy, and I think that you know each one of these investigations really touches on where the money was running, whether it was the Trump foundation campaign or the Trump organization, and Alan Weisselberg is at a place where he might understand how it is at these dots connect. And so I think it's it's going to be a really important conversation, and certainly his testimony before the before the grand jury. And I think that you know Cohen right here has his own exposure, and he needs to figure out when it is that he's going to sit down with prosecutors because the more the investigation goes forward without his cooperation and begins to to center on him. He is exposed in a way that others are not Howard. I wanna get emotional. It's been a long week over. Come to me REM ready? Well, these are that we do reporting here and we rely on reporting and the rule oriented narrative around Michael Cohen has tapped into his feelings and his stated feelings, which he's been leaking constantly to his friends as he has every right to to share his thoughts and feelings in a mode. These are some of them wounded abandoned. Frustrate panicked furious. These all come from the Washington Post's account of his feelings. How does that play into this and what is his reaction when he sees Weisselberg head into this grand jury box, which again, I have to say for clarity, we don't know when or if that is already happened, but whenever that kind of thing happens given their relationship. Well, let's start from the inside out. First of all, Conan Weisselberg presumably no affair amount about each other, Tim's. Absolutely right. Cone was the fixer. He wasn't the guy, signing the checks. It was Trump signing the checks and Weisselberg giving Trump the sign, the checks to sign. But when you get to different people from an organization testifying separately before a grand jury, that makes both of them really nervous. And that's exactly what Bob Muller and the feds want to do here. The big picture here Ari don't forget. The big question is, did Donald Trump and his organization Kalou. Dude with the Russians and are they covering that up? I've always thought, and I've reason to think that the theory of Muller's case is follow the money going back to Watergate. Follow the money where is the Russian money? How did the Russian money get in here? This is one of the things that Tim, who did a fabulous job on that book looked into where does the Russian money come from and how does the Russian money which was prevalent in the Trump organization in the late nineties and the odds? How did that money affect Donald Trump's behavior and cooperation with Russians? If at all in the campaign, so Muller's going deep here the feds are going deep and now they're getting to the people who really, really know as Tim points out. Weisselberg is a guy who knows every check, presumably every loan. Don't forget also that the feds have the tax returns. There's nothing that prevents the feds from getting the tax returns. They've got the tax returns, even if they're not public Weisselberg knows every jot and tittle those tax returns and what they really mean it. By the way, there's very weak. Privileged legally. It's not like a lawyer, very weeks, federal law and state laws on on on client accountant privilege. They get everything from Weisselberg. And Lastly, I would say why Solberg who was described by others is fading into the wallpaper generally is not the kind of guy. One would think who would probably enjoy going in front of a grand jury, Tim widow more about that than I. But this this is the feds again squeezing from the outside in and now they're getting really close it, Tim, and then Tim to that point. Well, I think even I think Howard spot on here, I guess we're in happy agreement about these things. I think beyond even the tax returns, the other thing that's been exposed to remember in that tape that came out the other night..
