Rep. Kevin McCarthy on the Democrat Party's Refusal to Put America Forward

"The Democrat Party obviously believes that It needs to embrace a new constituent swing. Created it. Constituent to AI. Thank you know it used to be the party and I'm going to use their Constant reference to skin color and race, which is repugnant, but I'm going to use it because they use it. Used to be the party of the white working man and woman. Now it's a party that keeps talking about white supremacy. White dominant society embraces the most radical elements in this country Wide open borders here clearly trying to affect the demographics in this kind of the way your state California was afraid you couldn't elect Ronald Reagan in your state today, if your life depended on it. And they're doing these things. For the Democrat Party, not the benefit of the country where the party comes first. This is a very difficult thing to confront, isn't it? It is and you've got to be scared about this because, remember Where policymakers and their focus is not about putting the country forward. Their focus is about maintaining power and keeping the Democratic Party in power liquidated their hr one. That is nothing about empowering individuals Voting, though. Pulling an election. Yeah, that's totally about controlling elections. Do you know they put a speeches are in there That would tell us what we can say. Like the social media that you couldn't talk about China or that came from Wuhan. And then they want to take a federal election commission that is bipartisan equal number Republican Democrats and weigh it heavier and change it, where it's one side party control. And then they want to take your taxpayer money, your hard earned money and they want to bring it into campaigns.

Myanmar Fails To Stop Action Even as It Cracks Down on Protesters, Journalists

"1000 demonstrators against last month's military seizure of power in Myanmar emerged cautiously today under the streets of the country's second largest city. Those in the vanguard carrying homemade shields bearing images of the three thinkers salute the movement symbol of defiance. The protest at Mandalay took place even though security forces have shown little reluctance to use lethal force to break up crowds. Those who marched gathered for just a few minutes before dispersing to avoid a possible confrontation. With riot police. Another group made him mobile protests. Driving through the streets on motorbikes. The protesters have adapted their tactics and response to the escalating violence from security forces, including the firing of live ammunition at crowds. The government's crackdown has left more than 50 protesters dead. But his failed to slow the widespread protests against the February 1st coup that ousted the elected government of Aung San Suu Cheap. According to the Myanmar based Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, more than 1800 people have been arrested in connection with the coup. Dozens of journalists have been arrested, including CNN's awe of The Associated Press has been charged under a public order law that carries a penalty of after three years in prison. According to local news reports and social media and what has become a daily occurrence in Myanmar Protests. Marches were held today in cities and towns across the country. Their actions came after a dramatic night and Yang gone when thousands of residents broke the eight p.m. curfew to show support for a group of protesters who had been trapped by police in an enclave of streets. They came out of their homes, saying songs against the coup and banged pots, pans and other implements together partly in the hope of diverting police from the hunted. Protesters estimated two numbers 200 Witnesses said Several dozens of those who had such shelter in the city's song strong neighborhood were arrested, but others made their way home at dawn several hours after police withdrew from the area. More from reporters. Simon marks what does the military in me and ma want to happen there now that they've seized power and a brutally suppressing protests demanding the freedom of the leaders of the National League for Democracy, the party led by unsung sushi that decisively won last autumns elections in the country. In the short term. Of course, it's apparent that they wanted to stop the new NLD government from taking power, but how much ongoing control do they want to play over affairs in the strife torn country? I think they've been just generally really surprised by how many seats energy has one solid. Jeffrey is non resident scholar in the Asia program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

What's happening at the protests in Myanmar?

"Maybe we should just start with where we are today so we're recording this uk. Time on tuesday morning. We're about a week out from the code. What's your understanding of. The current situation is on the first of february army took over arrested. The president's in the de facto head of government on succi said that they were acting within the emergency provisions of the constitution. They said that they would hand back. Power after holding elections within a year's time since then protests have been growing every day. They've spread around the country in several different towns and cities over the past forty eight hours. We've seen massive protests in the biggest city former capital. Rangoon may be hundreds of thousands of people on the streets yesterday yesterday evening. The government put out new regulations. And this morning. They also blocked major intersections and bridges as well in the city so the protests i think have become smaller but they have continued at in naypyidaw the capital. We're getting the first reports that someone may have been killed in altercations between protesters and the security forces. So it's a very very fluid time. We don't know what momentum the protests have they seen bay determined people seem incredibly energized in their desire to oppose takeover by the military. But we don't know what's going to happen because this is an army after all that's crushed many uprisings and demonstrations in the past. So we'll come onto what might come next In a bed. But what's your best understanding of why now so the ostensible reason that's been given is unhappiness about the elections but the elections were in november. So why february. So the elections were in early november around the same week as a. Us elections the commander in chief. The head of the army who turned sixty five. This year is meant to retire. I think he had thought that he might have a chance of of becoming the president after the elections. I think he had hoped that the pro army party the union solidarity and development party usdp would do reasonably well as well as many ethnic minority parties. Were contesting the elections as well when they didn't do well when the nfl the party amongst says suci a landslide. Victory the army. I said they would recognize and respect. The results but in december came increasing allegations from the us dp side of massive electoral fraud. And the army commander in chief and others in the army latched onto that and demanded an investigation that call for an investigation was rejected by the union election commission and that led in january two demands by the army that there'd be a special session of parliament to discuss these allegations that was also rejected by the speaker of the lower house of parliament that was followed by ultimatum and parliament the new parliament the newly elected parliament was meant to sit on the first february and the ultimatum was the weekend before the ultimatum past attempts back and forth reaching compromise that failed in the army seized power just on the on the eve of parliament sitting and the promise now is of new elections within the next twelve months so what reason is that i think that the outcome would be any different unless the elections themselves setup in such ways to guarantee a different outcome given what happened in november given the result would elections at any point in the next twelve months produce a different results. It's very difficult to say that they would. I mean the analogy won a landslide. I think with the army takeover. If anything else has g is more popular than ever strength of feeling against other militaries very high. I think the the pro army party would do even worse if elections were held today or unit. In years time. I think a couple of different sort of possibilities. I mean one is that you know. Assess has now been charged with illegal. Possession of walkie talkies communications equipment. That carries i think maximum prison sentence of three years. One thing would be that they would keep her under house arrest for this period through the next elections which is what they did back in. The army did back in twenty ten when elections were held than the other. Possibility is that they would disband the analogy. The other might be that they hold fresh elections and count on the d. says gee boycotting those elections. They're different possibilities. There's also the possibility that they might try to change the electoral system from first past post system to a proportional representation system in which case smaller parties including the ethnic minority parties. Might do better than they might think that they would have a better chance because the army has an automatic hold on twenty five percent of the seats so they actually just need allied parties to to win twenty five percent up to choose the president and a new government

"Belling late afternoon show on news talk, 11, 30 W. Y Es said. A bit later out of the program. I'm going to be sharing with you a segment. It is creating quite a controversy today in one of our local communities that has to do with a local schoolteacher. Gave out a survey to work class. Asking the students to express their opinions at a number of major social and political issues that are out there. And it was one of those things where, depending at what answer you gave you give a certain number of points to yourself. You've seen these sort of tests off it in the newspaper where they try to determine what kind of a personality type you are you somebody who prefers to stay home. Would you like to go? On African safaris. There is your idea of a vacation like Go 25 miles away for etcetera. You add up all of these things that it's supposed to tell you things about yourself. Well, this is incurring events that it's supposed to tell you in the end after you add them up where you really live. Really? You conservative wherever Where are you? And so on Well, anyway, the teacher handed out the results and according to a number of parents in the local community Students then turned in their number to the teacher, and the results were posted. I've contacted the local school they stick, the superintendent has responded. Dad believes that the teacher has Come up with a really creative and good Lesson plan where, as many parents believe that once again you have teachers that air out there poking into the political beliefs of their students. We're going to get to that story, but not right away. But I want to highlight it now and let you know that is out there and it is forthcoming. Should I tell the audience when we're going to do it? Why do you have a cap? Odd? The long story. Well, I don't want to hear a log story Had I actually don't even care Why you have a cab. It's one of those where I asked the question and I don't really need to know the answer, isn't it? Well that I don't don't tell me it. I need to stop asking questions and stop learning things that I don't need to know. That's what if my resolutions that I'm gonna make it life right go through my life, like the average liberal talking about Colbert, where they don't know a damn thing what they're talking about, and they are terrified of getting any information that might actually educate them. I need to be like that. Let's go into the cold, hard cash contest texting contest right now. I'm gonna roll out the word for the three o'clock are right now. You know the drill. You have until 3 55 to text this wording to 202 100. The word is fun, Nephew and fun. By the way, this contest ends Friday. As you know these things. One ends. And then sometime after that, hopefully the company brings it on another one. We were doing it for several years, but this one does end up Friday round of national contest thing. So the word for this hour is fun. You have until 3 55 to text that into 202 100 instantly When $1000 in cash. You got a text confirming entry. Plus, I already went for Standard Aidan message rates apply in this nationwide contest that I get one hour, one word rather every hour. The program, including six o'clock Our There's a story that's happening right now. I don't want you to overreact to it, and I don't want you to under react to it. I merely want you to react to it, and I don't know how much coverage is going to get. From the mainstream media. But the story is interesting, and it is important. The Wisconsin Election Commission has been holding a meeting essentially all day today. Ending. One of the things that has come up in the meeting is now an acknowledgement. By the staff of the Wisconsin Election Commission. That their audit of some of the voting machines provided by Dominion used in the state of Wisconsin in the November election. Showed what I would argue to be a significant error, right? This is it acknowledgment from the Election commission that The vote counts. That have come off of some of the machines that were used by Dominion in Wisconsin are not accurate. And that there is an error right associated with it. This to me is a very big deal now. Before we go any farther. This does not mean the Trump actually carried Wisconsin. We don't know exactly what it means because we have not audited the entire state. Now that I've gotten your attention Let me explain what's happened. One of the things that the Election Commission has the ability to do and they do it after all of these elections is They audit some of the voting machines in the state. What does that mean? An audit. What do you think That audit is? What you think it ought to be afforded machine is people have been throwing that this is going to throw me off with this cap that you have odd. No. Looked right at it. And I'm losing my marbles, pulses. It does not end at the end of this weekend, and I looked. Maybe I was so hoping it winter ends. I don't want to wait. But what with the dead It ends February 26. He's got weeks to go on is that looked at and I'm thinking that that's Friday. How would I possibly think that that's Friday? Your cat. Yes, it's your cap. I blame it on the camp. Paul's very good cap, but I somehow thought that February, the fifth distributor of the 26 It looked right at it, and I thought that's the end of this week. Maybe I'm thinking that this is January, But then the contest would already be over. They have no business really Get the word it all Anyway. You heard the word out there. Don't worry. The contest is going to go out for most of the until the 26th of February said. Never mind what I said about that. Yeah. This way. We decide that I'm actually what? Who's that? No Dave Michael's bringing in more corrections for things that I've said here or what? So I could see what a black it would I don't need it. It's on actually this sheet it is it black. It is a black and white and I read it wrong. It says 1/4 of February 26 that that I said. That's the end of the.

Trump entertained plan to install an attorney general who would help him pursue baseless election fraud claims

"Lead story. Today comes from the new york times and they say quote. The justice department's top leaders listened in stunned silence this month. One of their peers. They were told had devised a plan. Along with trump to oust. Jeffrey rosen as acting attorney. General and we'll the department's power to force georgia state. Lawmakers to overturn the presidential election results. This unassuming lawyer. Who worked on the plans names. Jeffrey clarke had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results to bolster trump's continuing legal battles and the pressure on georgia politicians. Because mr jeffrey rosen had refused the president's entreaties to carry out those plans mr trump was about to decide whether to fire. Mr rosen and replace him with mr kark danial remember. We were talking about like. who's this. Jeffrey rosen person. And i was like well his career official. I don't think he's going to go along with the bullshit. Turns out we were right. He did not go along with the bullshit. The department officials convened on a conference. Call then ask each other. what would you do. If mr rosen was dismissed and the answer was unanimous. they would all resign in protest They're informed packed. Ultimately persuaded trump. To keep rosen in place calculating that a furor over mass resignations at the top of the justice department would eclipse any attention on his baseless accusations. Voter fraud so he didn't he didn't do it for the right reasons. He said If you everyone resigned and mass it would take. He wouldn't say and mass if everyone was designed all at once. Take away attention from my lies. And so he didn't and trump's decision came only after rosen and clark made their competing cases to him in a bizarre white house meeting to officials compared with an episode of the apprentice albeit one that could prompt a constitutional crisis. This should be looked at and light of the impeachment article that will be sent to the senate as majority leader. Chuck schumer has agreed to delay the impeachment trial until february eighth. Some people think that this shows weakness. I do not. I think this was a calculated political shrewd. Move by chuck schumer. I think it allows more evidence to come out about the insurrection which will make it more difficult for republicans to acquit. And i wanna be clear here not because they have morals but because voters do and voters will be holding them responsible It's going to be more morally difficult for them to acquit. And a lot of people say well. We had the momentum. Right after the insurrection to get this vote to acquit and then additional vote to prevent it from running for office again. But that's not the case they wouldn't have had seventeen republicans and they still don't today but as we start to learn more we may be able to push more republicans over the edge and again not because they have morals but because the people who vote them into office do and some of that evidence came to light this weekend including the arrest of a man who had plans to assassinate alexandria. Ocasio cortez self-styled militia members from virginia ohio and states also made plans to storm the capital days in advance and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on both sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers and that's according to court documents filed tuesday while authorities have charged more than one hundred individuals in the riott details in the new allegations against three. Us military veterans offer a very disturbing look at what they allegedly said to one another before during and after the attack statements that indicate a degree of preparation determination to rush deep into the halls and tons of congress to make citizens arrests of elected officials and they even mentioned sealed sealing off the tunnels and and putting gas in them. Us authorities charged the apparent leader of the oath keepers That's an extremist group. Thomas caldwell sixty six of virginia. They're all from virginia in the attack. Alleging that the navy veteran helped organize a ring of dozens who coordinated their movements as they quote stormed the castle to disrupt the confirmation of biden's electoral college victory. Despite this current department of justice officials and federal law enforcement officials are privately debating whether they should declined to charge some of the individuals who stormed the capital so politically loaded proposition. But one alert to the practical concern that hundreds of such cases cases could swamp the local courthouse. You know tough shit. Internal discussions are in the early stages. No decisions have been reached whether to forego charging some of these folks and that's according to multiple people familiar with the discussions and we also learned that trump's campaign paid more than two point seven million dollars over two years to individuals and firms that organized the january sixth rally that led to the riot And that's according to the center for responsive politics and these payments which span trump's reelection campaign. Show an ongoing financial relationship between rally organizers and trump's political operation they were all made through november twenty third the most recent date covered by the federal election commission filings. Which is before the rally was publicly announced. I'm sure we'll see more in the next. Fcc filing so. That's where we are.

"Policy, power and law continues. Thank you, Greg. Once the Federal Election Commission allows a political donation to be anonymous a court cannot unmask the secret money source that according to a ruling by a federal judge for more on this case, we're joined now by Ken Doyle, Bloomberg government, senior editor for money and politics. He's in our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios in Washington, and Ken, what was the judge's reasoning for this decision. Yeah. This is this is one of several cases where the Federal Election Commission decisions about disclosure of campaign money have been challenged in court and. This was an unusual case because the FCC actually took some action they find a conservative nonprofit called the American conservative union three hundred and fifty thousand dollars for illegally transferring money from a donor to a super Pac that was supporting Republican candidates. So that the transfer was illegal because they the original source of the money wasn't wasn't disclosed the unusual and even more unusual aspect of this was that the FCC in settling with the American conservative union and finding this group did not go after the original donor. And in fact, the original donor is still unknown the Republicans and Democrats on the FTC deadlocked about on a recommendation from the staff that they should go. After the original donor. Identify that person perhaps fine it, and and the court then said, well, the law the campaign finance law gives the FCC the power to enforce the law and to and specifically requires the FCC to negotiate settlements before it goes to court in an enforcement case. And and the court said that the judge said that this gives the FCC basically wide latitude to decide how to settle a case. And and that can't be undone later on by a court. So the fact that they were able to find somebody and reach a settlement with somebody who admitted a violation meant that others involved in the case, basically sort of got off Scot free. It's important to know that there's a number of these cases on disclosure challenging disclosure decisions by the FCC. This is not the only one in perhaps not the final word. Even on this case, there's actually another ongoing court case involving the same donor. And so the donor may eventually be known but for now. It remains a mystery like a lot of the people funding some of these big outside spending groups that are that have become very important in our campaigns. And we really don't know where where their money's coming from. Let's turn to the house, which of course, is is becoming a democratic rule today. So they are going to start with the there'd be in twenty twenty. There's a rule that house members officers and employees will be banned from serving on corporate boards. But is there any inclination to have a rule to prohibit house members from trading stocks in companies, they directly oversee on committees in light of the Chris Collins. Yeah, this is I mean, there's quite a number of ethics provisions in this new rules packages. Democrats come in after an election where they emphasized ethics issues and problems with President Trump problems with the Republican controlled congress where two members including Collins have face criminal indictment that they were both reelect. By the way, Collins and Duncan Hunter. And so there was this provision on corporate boards, which doesn't have a real practical effect because Collins resigned from the board where he was that he served on where he was accused of insider trading, and nobody else is is on a publicly traded company board nobody else in congress. But there was an instruction. As part of the rules package for the house ethics committee to go and take a look at a broader look at this issue on on questions like the one that you mentioned about trading stock. If you're if you're on a defense committee, should you trading stock in defense contractors, for example. And so there may be I think further action based on those recommendations, I think it's at the end of the year at the end of two thousand nineteen that we'll see a report, and there may be. Some broad or recommendations in the Democratic Congress to deal with possible conflict of interest questions that have come up again. And again, really in congress. I think that you know, the courts, for example, have much stricter rules about where judges have to recuse if they have a financial interest. But there's there's not the same kind of detailed rules in congressman. There's been a lot of problems that have come up where people have looked at this and said, you know, members shouldn't be voting on things that affect their personal finances. So. As I say, it's one of a broader range of ethics. Reforms that the Democrats are trying to push and trying to. Show that they are paying attention to what where they see the public saying, congress is not really representing the public interest there too too much. Representing their own interests Gandhara, Bloomberg government, senior editor for money in politics. Thanks for your time. Thanks a lot coming up on Bloomberg politics policy power in law in his year. End report chief Justice, John Roberts said the federal judiciary will begin putting measures in place to address sexual harassment in US court houses. But before we get to that.

Thank you, the new democratic led house of representatives plans to toss back to the Senate bills it previously passed to end the government shutdown, but no border wall funding. Bloomberg's Irv Chapman reports from the White House. The president has on occasion mentioned combining his wall demand with the Democrats desire to grant permanent residents.

"Our hall of shame along with Chris go back in and a few others that have basically looked at the election process. You know, you asked me before I was partisan. They look at it. As basically a game to be played for partisan ends in partisans victory. Whether that means manipulate what is the procedure vote voter suppression or the actual counting process Nava states collect the votes, then what did they on a national election? And then what did they do send it to a central clearing agency for the feds or what no actually our our election system is? Much like our transportation system, it it it had roots in a sort of a pre technological age. And it's now something of a of a hybrid on. So the states that you can say in a way that they collect the votes, but many times. The votes go straight to the AP from this from this equipment. Sometimes they go via a state websites. And that's a whole nother issue. It doesn't go to the Federal Election Commission. It does not knowing AmeriFactors federal control over elections under the constitution is somewhat limited. They have control only first of all under over federal elections presidency. Senate and house do not have control over state elections. And even where they do have control over the federal elections. It's kind of a mixed bag in constitutional law. How how much they can they can actually control the processes? So most of this is in the hands of the states. Now you had recently when the Kodak condition. Lose a whole nother branches cynicism here. But Donald Trump was convinced that you know, he would have won the popular vote if it hadn't been for five million illegal voters of which there's absolutely no evidence. It would be very strange that five million illegal voters would all be that, you know, motivated to commit a felony but on their on their own individually, but there's been no evidence of it. But he formed the commission to go and look for that evidence. The commission did not exactly cover itself with glory.

"With us. We're coming Tuesday from the Dell studios Democrats across the country are outperforming their Republican counterparts in the race for big money from small donors, according to a Wall Street Journal review of Federal Election Commission reports Wall Street Journal national political reporter, Julie bike wits has been analyzing the data Julie set this up, well, I analyzed the fundraising fortunes of all of the tossup races. And that's as rated by cook political report that gave me a universe of thirty eight races to look at those being house races and eight Senate races. And it was very clear that the Democrats in all of those races. Collectively were quite outperforming. The Republican candidates. In fact, they had raised about quadruple what the Republican candidates had in donations up two hundred dollars or less while so. The Democrats winning in those small donations. Does that equal winning the overall fundraising in the democrat versus Republican in a particular race? That's an important point. What I found was that in in a lot of cases, he's small donations were actually helping the Democrats keep up with the Republicans in the race. It was about fifty fifty sometimes Republicans were overall out raising the Democrats. But then other times, you know, thanks in large part to these small donations to Democrats were actually able to outrage even really well established Republicans are seeking office. Again. What are the experts say what does it was? That means that the sign of enthusiasm couple important points about small donations one it can definitely signal enthusiasm. These are people who wanna have skin in the game. And so they're giving small amounts of money often. They're not yours sort of political animals. You know, these are people who are going to big dinner fundraisers or anything like that. They're just by and large average people who see something they like and throw in a couple of bucks here and there so that translates a lot better to too. Voter into the momentum other fundraising metrics, and then another important point about being donors is that the candidates can keep going back to them again. And again until they reach the maximum donation limit and that can really provide a couch cash infusion at important times like just before election day. We're speaking with Julie by Kuwait's, national political reporter at the Wall Street Journal, her piece is called Democrats outperforming Republicans in small donations. You open the story with the example of the Nevada congresswoman who is Jackie Rosen who's running for US Senate in Nevada, and how she turned comments from Mr. Trump into a lot of these small donations. Explain that example, sure. So I wanted to try to explain why it is that some of this grazing crane how how these candidates are getting capturing so many small dollars, and which Representative rose in what I found is that when President Trump showed up in Las Vegas her campaign team.

Caused all the Republican candidates to really engage with to try to motivate voters to win the primary and that same sort of activity can also spur a lot of small donations. So that's kind of one working theory on wine, tallies fundraising.

"Week with us. We're coming Tuesday from the Dell studios Democrats across the country are outperforming their Republican counterparts in the race for big money from small donors, according to a Wall Street Journal review of Federal Election Commission reports Wall Street Journal national political reporter, Julie Bica wits has been analyzing the data Julie set this up no analyze the fundraising fortunes of all of the tossup races. And the as rated by cook political report that gave me a universe of thirty eight races to look at those being house races in eight Senate races. And it was very clear that the Democrats and all of those races collectively were buoyed outperforming the Republican candidates. In fact, they had raised about quadruple what the Republican candidates had in donations up two hundred dollars or less. So. The Democrats winning in those small donations. Does that equal winning the overall fundraising in the democrat versus Republican in a particular race? That's an important point. What I found was that in an a lot of cases small donations were actually helping the Democrats keep up with the Republicans in the race. It was about fifty fifty sometimes Republicans were overall out raising the Democrats. But then other times, you know, thanks in large part to these small donations. The Democrats were actually able to outrage even really well established Republicans are seeking office. Again. What are the experts say what does it that means that the sign of enthusiasm couple important points about small donations one it can definitely signal enthusiasm. These are people who want to have skin in the game and giving small amounts of money often. They're not your sort of political animals. You know, these aren't people who are used to going to big fundraisers or anything like that. They're just by. Enlarge average people who see something they like and throw in a couple doctrinaire that translates a lot better to voter enthusiasm than some other fundraising metrics, and then another important point about being donors is that the candidates can keep going back to them again. And again until they reached the maximum donation limit and that can really provide account cashing bution at important times like just before election day. We're speaking with Julie by koets, national political reporter at the Wall Street Journal, her piece is called Democrats outperforming Republicans in small donations. You open the story with the example of the Nevada congresswoman who is Jackie Rosen who's running for US Senate in Nevada, and how she turned the comments from Mr. Trump into a lot of these small donations explained, that example. Sure. So I wanted to try to explain why it is that some of this fundraising is occurring. How how these candidates are getting capturing so many small? Dollars and. Grows in what I found is that when President Trump showed up in Las Vegas, her campaign team was very well prepared to capitalize on that event. They didn't know exactly what the president would say. But they sent out fundraising pitches all around Mr. Trump's visit to Las Vegas and then when president actually unveiled his. Nickname for her wacky. Jackie the campaign.

"So they created this independent agency to do that with funding of elections regulated before that at beforehand it wise to some extent um certainly there were reports that were supposed to be filed there was a little bit of oversight there were limitations on contributions that began with a law that was patchy 1971 that actually may have triggered some of the problems of watergate because the president's reelection campaign tried very hard to get as much money into the system as it could before that law took effect at the beginning of nineteen 72 that led to lots of cash being distributed in and posited or or stored in in safes around the white house and other places in and it really started the ball rolling that became the watergate scandal there were some restrictions but but they were mud largely ignored with that by federal election campaign act the 1970s was yes that's right so that act was passed in 1971 how has it been amended are changed over the years there were a series of amendments in especially in the early years there were amendments in 1974 that actually created the fec some more in nineteen seventy six and seventy nine to finetune the system a little bit and to adapt to court cases and supreme court decisions that were made in that time period too it's kind of an evolutionary process um that goes on today they didn't these called the federal election commission how many commissioners are on the apathy it's very odd and not by mistake there there are six members of the commission by design and the law says that not more than three he can be members of the same political party aha and that to do anything to start an investigation to allow it to instruct the staff to go out and come in and run a nodded to do anything requires four votes so you have to across party lines in order to conduct the business of the of the institution assets meant to be a nonpartisan agency well i i mean the difference between bipartisan a nonpartisan amateur um typically in the early days the members of the commission were retired members of congress congress really they wanted something independent but they didn't want something to independent um they wanted to be able to to make it clear to those people that political priorities were not irrelevant they just didn't necessarily drive the process tell us look at how the agency actually works and.

"Excellent so derek let's let's begin with you and i just want to make sure that we're all on the same page about this commission can you just tell us a little bit about where president trump's advisory commission election integrity came from what is goal is and and and sort who serving on it so far sure so i think you know after every election everyone looks back and take stock about what happened and there is often frustration with the results at times and oftentimes specially after the very close election in two thousand with bush versus gore on with long lines the polls in in two thousand twelve other can times were presidents have convenes election commissions to address some of the concerns that arose out of the previous election answer donald trump has a i think pretty busted firstly insisted that there were a number of illegal votes cast insisted that he believes he won the popular vote despite the fact that hillary clinton won by probably more than three million votes at he won the electoral college so there is a little bit of a dispute about half at least from his perspective but the validity of the results and about the reliability and integrity election so he issued this executive order to create a commission and i'll just address a couple of brief serve over viewpoints one is that he named uh mike pence is vice president as the chair of the commission that's a little bit unusual the last few presidential commissions have sort of head to cochairs one from each party so the last one for instance had a bob our end.
