Giuliani makes accusations of fraud that the Trump team has failed to support in court

"Well. Donald trump continues to refuse concession in the presidential election rudy. Giuliani is still bungling attempt at legally overturning. The election results now. They've brought their cases to court every time they've done so have basically noticed that there's no evidence and the cases get thrown out as a result on thursday meeting today. The trump campaign did drop the lawsuit seeking to block michigan's results assigned. Perhaps that they believe most they're most likely path to success is a political one persuading the states elected republicans to award trump a state. He lost now time. Also reports a similar theme when it comes to rudy giuliani. Who had an unhinged crazy press conference this morning. Trump's lawyers don't have to win in court they only have to wreak enough havoc in the legal system and so enough doubt among the american public. That state boards slow their process of certifying the election results thus potentially politicizing the process by which states confirm the electoral winner and so one of the other examples of the chaos. They're trying to so in. This electoral process is the wayne. County board of canvassers have already voted unanimously to certify the election results which indicate the joe biden won their county but at the same time we're hearing from trump's legal team including gina ellis. Who's the legal adviser for the trump campaign Saying things like this. She actually tweeted this breaking this evening. The county board of canvassers in wayne county michigan refuse to certify the election results. That's a lie. They did certify the election results. If the state board follow suit the republican state legislator will select the electors huge win for donald trump. I mean they're. They're trying to steal the election in plain sight. There is no question about it and during rudy giuliani's press conference today. He aired all sorts of grievances. regarding so-called widespread election fraud refused to provide evidence even though he claimed that he had the evidence and proceeded to say things that have already been debunked in court. And i'll go through a little bit of that in just a minute jank. Why don't you jump in so you have to understand. This is not conjecture and this is not our perspective. When donald trump drops a lawsuit the actual case in michigan that means he has no evidence that could overturn the results so when he goes the certification process and representatives to just hand them. The electors is set of biden. He's basically saying we know we lost this election. There's no earthly way. We could prove it in court because we don't have any evidence so let's just steal it we're allowed to steal it if you just name different electors. Would that end democracy. Yeah but who cares. We'd we'd remain in charge so dropping a lawsuit and going to electors is by definition admitting we lost but we'd like to steal it nonetheless so that's the kind of outrage that we're in right now. Meanwhile raju secretive sydney ballet. Cover this before She says we have a fire. Hose of secret evidence. Okay but the good news for rudy. You went to court. Court is way you present the secret of it is. You can't go to court and say your honor. We should definitely rule in our favor. But we're going to have to keep all of our evidence secret. It's not really how it works. And when he went to court he got clowned absolute

The Times Called Officials in Every State: No Evidence of Voter Fraud

The Times Called Officials in Every State: No Evidence of Voter Fraud

"The Times called officials in every state no evidence of voter fraud. Can you tell us how that reporting assignment went? How the story was reported leading to that sweeping conclusion. Yeah, we started with the thought of you know, there's been all these allegations coming from the Trump campaign and Republican allies about widespread voter fraud and all of these irregularities that, you know. One of the election away from them. So we started it at first, you know, just contacting the specific allegations they had made in states and election officials in those states and we thought was we were doing that. You know the whole Picture that I've kind of been painted by the president is campaign and the Republican allies you know, from before the election dating a long time ago. Has been that the you know, kind of United States electoral process is rife with fraud. Which is just not true, eh? So we thought we will reach every state and talk to the top elections official in every state. Most of the time that the secretary of state occasionally there's election commission like in Wisconsin, where there's top election administrator on bee Just ask them, you know. Have you seen any evidence of fraud or any kind of other irregularities? Would have played a role in the outcome of the presidential race. Whether it would you know, have these impacts. And we heard back directly from 45 of them on. They all said No. You know, they're very decrees of thing. Absolutely not. This is ridiculous. This thing our election was Smooth. We're proud of it. Um With it did not get back. What's already need statements saying as much on Ben the only one that didn't ever directly respond to us was Texas. But we contacted the top elections official in Harris County. The here is kind of clerk, his office and Harris County is home to Houston, and it's got a population of about 4.7 Million, which is bigger than about 25 states. And then they saw no evidence. So that's kind of how we went through everything T get to the conclusion that we drew. By the way, I think I Said. Your last name wrong. It's chorus. The needy. Yes, it is. I apologized in chorus in 80 from the New York Times Our guest. Let me stay on that aberration of Texas for a minute. Cause you reported that the Republican lieutenant governor of Tenet of Texas, Dan Patrick, already infamous for saying old people should be prepared to die from the coronavirus. So younger people can live normal lives that Dan Patrick he has offered. A $1 million reward fund. For anyone I should say. Established in $1 Million Reward Fund. I guess it wouldn't all go to one person for anyone reporting voter fraud. But Trump won Texas. So if his reward fund is intended to help Trump flip the results, How does that help? Exactly there is. It's not necessarily clear whether lieutenant governor Patrick's reward was just for Texas or whether you know it could be one of these, like we're seeing a couple of funds pop up. Among right aligned groups that are like offering rewards for reports, sir affidavits of voter fraud but you know, kind of looking beyond that. Yeah. We're talking about Texas, and we're trying to say, you know, did Texas experience any of these irregularities or anything? Obviously, from what we heard the prevailing answers? No, even though state officials never got back to us. If you'd wonder why Lieutenant Governor Patrick would feel the need to announce Uh, fun to reward reports that they already had a conference of evidence. And you know his. He has been, um Pretty vocal, making claims that you know, without any evidence that there was kind of widespread voter fraud in the past, so it kind of fits with what he is has said kind of throughout his career. But it certainly doesn't necessarily instill any kind of confidence again that there's any major evidence in Texas if you're offering money to reward reports of Voter fraud. And since Texas was still a red state in this presidential election, wouldn't it be funny if his million bucks turned up so much Republican voter fraud in this state that he wound up flipping it the other way, But of course, there hasn't seemed to be evidence of widespread forward on either side. So I guess he's not worried about it. It's political theater in

Gov. Kristi Noem calls Biden's win 'premature,' criticizes election process

"Governor Christie Gnome is with us. She is from South Dakota. She is one of my favorites, and she was very out. Spoken about Donald Trump. And now about the recount, and I mean she's going to be put on a list. I hope you're prepared for that. Governor. You there. I am I I guess I guess I am prepared for that. I know that that some of the discussion that's happening out there, but This is about protecting our country and our electoral process going forward. It's not just about this election that's about everyone going forward and making sure that we don't break our country by not keeping The transparency and honesty in the election. So this isn't just about Ah, recount to make sure that by hook or by crook Donald Trump wins It is truly about we have to have this process. Be credible. Oh, absolutely. I mean, we live in a republic and in a republic, the government gets its power from the consent of the governed the governor the people and we give our consent on Election Day. And so we have to trust that it's a fair, legitimate and honest process, and there are definite questions out there across the country about this last election, and so that is why we make sure that we Challenge those cases that are questionable and make sure we have our day in court to to ferret out any kind of discrepancies that there might be that is we allowed that in 2000 when Al Gore had questions about that election process. I don't know why we're not Willing to wait and give Donald Trump his same day in court to make sure we clear this up, so the American people can have confidence that they still are the ones who give government its power every time we elect our leaders. So George Stephanopoulos. I always wanna columns Snuffleupagus. But Stephanopoulos said on Ah, this week on ABC, where you were Do you have anything to back this up? Are you asking me that? That's what he asked. Well, he asked me that and I said, Absolutely we do. We have people across the country that has signed affidavits, which are legal documents. It can be used in court to say that they believe there was election fraud going on and witnessing to what they saw going on. In many of these states. We have the New York Times themselves that admitted that there were clerical errors out there. We have dead people who voted in Pennsylvania. We have computer glitches in Michigan. That changed Republican votes to Democrat votes. All of these are you know, documents and people that are willing to testify to the fact of what they saw. And that is why We need to hear those out. I'm not saying it's going to overturn the election to what people think it is. Today. We don't know how widespread it is. But why would we not answer those questions and make sure that there was an honest process in place to know that the right man is going to end up in the White House for the next four years?

South Los Angeles Voter Says She Received Spanish-Language Ballot Without 2 Key Races

"One South Los Angeles voters says two key races were missing from the Spanish language ballot she received in the mail along Nosing Quint. He's Iowa. Hernandez lives in south L A, and showed us the Spanish language ballot she says she received in the mail by both under 4 ft, she says when she went to vote on her official ballot, it was missing two key races. Her. Vala did not include the Assembly district, 59th race or the California Congressional 40th District race. We are still finding so many discrepancies effort. Martinez is running for the 59th Assembly District C that represents parts of South lay in Huntington Park, He says Hernandez alerted his office to the mistake. Remember, I mean, these these ballots are printed in batches on Hernandez, his official Spanish language ballot. Page three has a different serial number compared to the rest, which means it's not part Her voting precinct and shouldn't be in her packet. Her ballot reference guy that came with it included both of the races. The county registrar's office says they investigated and the vendor who assembled her ballot says it distributed it with the correct pages. They say Hernandez may have misplaced a page or mixed it up with someone else's, which would be why the two races are missing, the registrar says. There's been no other incidents of this happening Martinez, his opponent, assembly member Reggie Jones, Sawyer said in a statement. Voters need to have trust in the electoral process, but added, Thankfully, no reports from voters in our district receiving an accurate information on their ballot have been made that was CBS two's jasmine veal.

Proposition 18: Youth Voting

Proposition 18: Youth Voting

"Politics reporter Guy Marzorati has been covering profit teen for K. Q. E. D. Hey? Guy. Hey. So walk us through what we're voting on here. So the very basics is that proposition eighteen would allow seventeen year olds to vote in primary and special elections if they turn eighteen by the general election. So to clarify, this would not have helped to, for example, me who was seventeen during the two, thousand, four, general election and was. Pretty disgruntled that I wasn't able to vote right right and I was in the same boat seventeen in the two thousand, eight election. This does not change that if you're seventeen when the general election is happening, you still won't be able to vote. This is really aimed at the voters who turned eighteen in the window between the primary and the general election. It would let them kind of get a headstart and voting and let them. Vote in the primary. Now, some people may think you know it's only the primary it's not a huge deal. You still get to vote in the general. Why does it even matter that you know young people would be voting in primaries? Well, proponents really make two arguments and the first is question of fairness. They say it's only fair that voters in the general election also gets a have a voice in the primary Elliott Talkie. Of San Francisco was a freshman in college. But for the past few years, she's been advocating for this change for exactly that reason I was cheated out on this election cycle and thousands of others were cheated out to not be able to vote in the twenty twenty primary such. An exciting primary I should add was really disappointing and I'm not the only one thing about all the people who are born between March and November and In the second argument is really around habit building. So supporters say that voting is a habit, the more you do it the more you're likely to do it in the future and that if you let seventeen year olds vote in the primary when they're still in high school, they're getting civics education that education could be enriched by actually participating in the electoral process it's building a habit for the future and make these young Californians. Habitual voters. Okay and there are definitely some people who are not excited about the prospect of seventeen year olds voting at all Let's hear a little bit about what they argue. Right. So when this was put on the ballot by the state legislature, mostly all Democrats supported mostly all Republicans opposed it and antitax groups are also against this measure they say seventeen year olds most of them are still in high school and their captive. Audiences in classrooms who could be swayed by teachers especially on school bonds and school taxes they say, basically, they might spend a whole day only once side of a campaign and while there's eighteen states and the district of Columbia that allowed this changes well, the opponents of prop eighteen say California's different because we directly vote on taxes, school bonds, parcel taxes, and they say that these seventeen year olds are not to be trusted in. Those votes here's Susan Shelley with the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. So of seventeen, year, olds are seeing this in high school and then they're voting in a primary on school taxes school bonds they can be influenced to vote for these taxes without seeing the full argument or having the knowledge of the previous tax increases that may have been passed for the same purpose. Another argument that I read was because our primaries have moved so early. Some of these voters will actually be I, mean closer to sixteen than they are to eighteen when they would be voting in these primaries. Yeah and I think that's another argument made on the No side really about brain development that you know we've set this legal age eighteen and we shouldn't go any farther below it. I haven't seen a whole lot of evidence to suggest that seventeen year old or somehow less likely. To make these decisions than eighteen year olds, there are seventeen year olds who pay taxes after all but that's definitely something you're hearing from the no campaign. Now, it's not often that we actually sea propositions that benefit teenage Californians. How did this one? Make It on the ballot in the first place? This was on the ballot by the state legislature, a two thirds vote and it was largely Democrats who backed it There was only one Democrat who voted against it in the legislature only two Republicans who ended up supporting it. Okay. So even though the legislature has already passed this law because it's basically going to be an amendment to the state constitution, they have to get a public approval for it. That's right and you might be thinking wait doesn't the constitution of the United States kind of set the voting age and it? Really Only, addresses the fact that you can't deny the right to vote to citizens who are eighteen. It really doesn't speak to allowing younger citizens to cast ballots, which is why you've seen a number of states moving this direction and allow seventeen year olds to participate in the primary. At least if they turn eighteen by the general election, is there any idea on what kind of impact this will actually have a voter turnout? Well, we have some idea and that's because of a study by the Public Policy Institute of California which took a look at what they called the so-called prop eighteen voters, and there were two hundred, thousand such. Californians in this boat in the last couple elections, these voters are potentially a significant block especially for primary elections where votes can often be very close decided by a few thousand, a few hundred votes even but another key finding the study found was that the participation of these group of voters is really far from being guaranteed experts and civic engagement say that passing this measure alone is not going to be enough to boost. Turnout rates among young voters I talked with Ron Tariq has about this. She's a sociology professor at UC Santa Cruz I think that propositions eighteen if it passes will be very successful at increasing turn out if it is coupled with civics education at the secondary school level, it creates an opportunity for a secondary school educators to really concentrate more time and resources to developing the curriculum that excites people about voting. So even folks who are backing this change say it's not a panacea. A won't solve all the issues around voting rates in participation of young voters. Alright. K Q d politics, reporter Guy, Marzorati thanks for your help. Thank you.

How the White House is Taking On Remote Work

"After president trump and several White House staffers tested positive for the corona virus. The West Wing is now doing what many companies have been struggling to do. Since March have lots of workers make a quick shocked to remote work. As we've seen, that's a pretty tall order even without highly classified government information on the line our cybersecurity reporter David Bertie has been looking into what? That shift entails for the White House and he joins us now to explain Dave. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. All right. So I don't think any listeners would be surprised to know that the White House had pretty strong digital defenses prior to all this, what their pre pandemic setup look like with the White House has been investing for about two decades particularly since. The September eleventh attacks in just allowing the government to function in the event of an emergency. So a lot of cases that just means along people to work remotely in a normal situation over the last five or ten years in particular more and more staffers who work in the white. House. Have taken advantage of a variety of digital security measures that they have just work at. Nights, weekends it Cetera. So they don't have to go into the office at all times having said that as you might expect, there's a lot of work. The White House does that can't go off site particularly with regard to classified information. So that's where you might have a few hiccups in terms of the workflow and what people might need to actually come on site to do. And how they reacted since the onset of the pandemic. There's been at least one instance since the pandemic began when the administration learning of a positive covid nineteen tests advise certain employees to work from home as a precautionary measure. We saw that again on Friday once a number of these positive tests started coming out there were directives handed out to White House staffers that at least some of them should start working from home as opposed to coming into the office but as to this point is unclear to what extent that's true for the entire staff. So there may be certain staffers within the White House who still have to come in depending on what their job duties entail. Obviously, we have a situation as the case with many companies were there essentially triaging data in different processes? So stuff that is So essential needs an extra layer of defense will come unto. White House grounds were data can be encrypted with additional physical defenses. There's checking points where people have to use cards inside you have that juxtaposed to sort of less sensitive data where people can access the White House office through what you are. I. Might Use such as a VPN virtual private network, which essentially allows you to burrow underneath the defenses of your office space. Dave, this is all happening as we've seen an uptick in hacking attempts we've been talking about on the show bit how does that play in here? Will. There have been an uptick in hacking attempts for pretty much every type of organization out there you have schools. As you discussed last week, you have every type of company under the Sun, and then of course, various government agencies and the electoral process in general. Now, we have a few different aspects with the White House. In particular one being the president's health there have been numerous mixed messages coming out of the White House in recent days as far as how sick president trump has been the mere fact of how sick or healthy he is. Becomes really valuable piece of information. So we spoke to a couple of former White House officials who worked in it and cybersecurity in recent days, and he said not only will the white. House medical team potentially targeted by foreign hackers who want access that information but also the people around medical team that could be people who work with the family dog walkers was an example given to us anyone who sort of in there at that orbit or has devices within those people's orbit could be potential vector for an attacker aside from net you also have. Run of the Mill White House work have you have staffers working in policies that working on communicating with the press and the public and what have you? So each one of those people can also become a target as well whenever you're in a remote work situation and you go outside of your normal offices defenses, you become more vulnerable. It expands what cybersecurity folks called the attack surface. So if You're using a personal device, a personal laptop as opposed to the one that might be government issued that certainly a little bit more dangerous than having haven't been working normal office space and we've been talking a lot about the risks of a more spread out workforce for businesses and other entities. But with this situation with the White, house there really seems to be even more on the line here. I mean it doesn't really get much bigger than this. Right? You have the leader of the free world with a potentially deadly disease a month out from the election during an economic calamity. There's a lot of moving parts here and I think everyone who might want to take advantage of a situation such as this is probably think about it at this point I don't think it gets much bigger than this and as we spoke to a number of former administration officials as well they basically said upshot is the normal day to day business at the White House is going to grind to a halt. It's almost inevitable in a situation as crazy as this. For any organization at company is school, etc. When you're dealing with shocks, just sort of the day to day work of that particular organization to tends to slow down. But I would also say that like if you were to rank of the places in the world, they're the most secure the White House would probably be top of the list so they are. Potentially vulnerable to more threats than anyone else and they're going through the weirdest situation possible on the other hand, they do have the highest walls around. In terms of cyber defence is that pretty much any place in the world could have.

A Look At The First Presidential Debate Of 2020

"Let's start today's program in the United States then which last night witnessed a chaotic and bitter presidential debate between President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden here's a selection of an use the term loosely highlights. I am urging my people I. Hope it's going to be a fair election of it's a fair election and what I am a hundred percent on board. But of I see tens of thousands of ballots being manipulated, I can't go along with that and I'll. Come accommodation does that mean? People to take. A fraudulent election is people aren't equipped to handle it number one, number two, they cheat. They cheat hey, they found ballots wastepaper basket three days ago they all had the name trump on them if we would have listened to you, the country would have been left wide open millions of people would have died not two, hundred, thousand and one person is too much. It's China's fault. It should have never happened. They stopped it from going in, but it was China's for. But if you look at what we've? Done. I. Closed It, and you said he's xenophobic racist and xenophobic Dr out she said President trump saved thousands of lives. Many of you are Democrat governor said, president trump did a phenomenal job. We worked with the governor a really go take a look. There's a deal. The fact is everything he said so far is simply a lie I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar but you I WanNa make sure what it lasts. It lasts. Hi I. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan how both? The. Aesthetic you have. Have you do this month? Your administration directed federal agencies to end racial sensitivity training that addresses white privilege or critical race theory. I ended it because it's racist. It was a radical, a revolution that was taking place in our military in our schools all over the place and you know it and so does everybody else. Racial sensitivity training to view a certain person, you had no status in life. It was sort of a reversal and really they were teaching people to hate our country and I'm not GonNa do that I'm not going to allow that to happen but. Just, as the rallies to left, would you? Listen, who is on your list Joe Just. The flavor of last night's heated presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Well, let's get more on this now with motorcycles US election correspondent. Thomas Lewis, and our news editor Chris show WHO's here in London Thomas. Let Me Cross to you first of all. Some up if you can what did you make that it was not exactly a particularly edifying spectacle I think it's safe to say, no, it wasn't Tom and it didn't really feel like a debate at all. There is in the sort of you know history of these debates as a sort of sacred toned the stages these candidates president take that when after debated finished, you're watching the US knees anchors who are trying to pick up the coverage afterwards, and they all seemed absolutely stunned and lost for words and kind of shocked by the kind of visceral experience. The the debate is offered them I think Joe Biden obviously seem much more prepared but Donald. Trump's goal. In the whole thing, I think was to fluster him to put him on the back foot to try and reignite this narrative that he's campaigners tried on largely failed to stick to Joe Biden that he's too old. He's doddery. He isn't really fit to lead the nation particularly in a time of crisis Joe Biden for sure had the set pieces if you like of the debate but a lot of the marine lost in the fog of the war of the shouting match and I think for the moderator Chris Wallace for someone who really is considered as one of the best in the business to also have been kind of sat there in silence. For. Large parts of it not quite knowing what to do really did speak in lots of ways to just how extraordinary presidential debate this really was Christiana. You were watching on this side of the you watch the whole thing I. Don't think you probably went into it with a great deal of expectation, but it's safe to say you would. Have to be disappointed by the standard of what you saw. Tom I've watched many debates over the years in the US and you know to Thomas Point there I've I've never quite seen anything like that in the US. The the irony in some ways is that US debates. Political debates kind of jumping off with Thomas said tend to be rather stilted affairs What's interesting for me in part before we talk about the actual substance is that typically that's because of the rules you know often it's very stilted in saying you know this candidate, you have two minutes thirty second rebuttal to the next one one minute rebuttal to you. Now we move. Onto the next topic, this one was an open debate there was always after each question there two minutes for each candidate's is start with that didn't work very well already to begin with because there was a lot of interruptions. But then after that, it was sort of this free for all that very quickly descended into a shouting match essentially between the two candidates the other Issue for me or I think. The. That's that's worth. Pointing out is. I do think that one could say donald trump will feel like he pulled off a rather good performance. This is the persona that he has cultivated over the last three and a half years when it comes to his style as well as the ideas that he has put forward, this is who he is and I think he will feel that he had energized even those supporters that he has to come out I don't think he's won any new supporters with what he's done, but he's energized his own base and by as Thomas said, really sort of. Failing to let by Biden in really to make any strong points because of the constant interruptions. Biden didn't make a very strong mark. I would argue and so that that works in some ways if you want to speak purely political calculations that works to trumps favorite because people are going to be left frankly just depressed with the political process as a result of that the big. Well, we'll come to you rather autistic said was the substance. I didn't detect creative air in a moment but I just wonder on that point about trump he seemed to be I don't know this sort of a twitter feed made flesh. It was just a series of spiky pronouncements angry it was delivered in the style we've come to associate with him on that platform Were there any actual substantive communications that will have registered or was it just about him preview once again he can shout louder. Know the worst some substantive points that that were made and a couple of them played in in those clips that I thought were were quite interesting and highlighted the two different ideologies. One was on the pandemic and the Corona virus you heard Donald Trump talked there as he often does putting all the blame on putting all the blame on China for the coronavirus coming in he also there were a number of exchanges where it was very clear that for Donald Trump it's time for. People to open up again, it's time for the country to open up. He bragged about the fact that he had many people at his rallies. For example, at his political rallies. He felt that was a good thing and he sort of Josh Joe. Biden for you know not being able to get people to his rallies and there was this very poignant moment in that way where the quote was along the lines of trump saying people want to open up and Biden responded. quickly, people want to be safe and so that was a very clear moment in terms of the ideology of the two. I think that will strike people and the second one was on race, which you also heard there there are some very strong moments that again highlighted the sharp differences between the two when it comes to race and protests and the violence that is happening in the US right. Now, there was the bizarre moment you heard there about racial sensitivity training. WHERE DONALD TRUMP DONALD TRUMP rather very depressingly. I would say really double down on this idea that racial sensitivity training is somehow leading to a radical revolution in the United States in education he also refused to openly condemn white supremacist groups. There was this moment where he was asked to condemn the proud boys a white supremacist group and he did not So there were there were moments there that we're really quite depressing. He focused his attention than on Joe Biden saying. You, refuse to speak about law and order I. Think Joe Biden tried to answer that maybe Thomas can speak to this as well. It was interesting how he tried to answer the law and order question I wonder if that is something that you know might lose him some supporters on the left because he was trying to be quite defensive of the polices result of that. So Donald Trump really use his own strategy, what he wanted to do to effect in his world. Let me bring you in. Then on I guess looking from Joe Biden's pointed viewed along with Christie's rated the. was rather difficult for him to. Seize control of the narrative given trump's behavior sort of in the room. What did you make of his performance and would there be any areas that he may find he landed any blows I think Donald Trump's goal was purely to fluster Joe Biden and to throw him off his. Uncertain moments it worked. There were other moments when Joe Biden was alive to speak that you know if they do want to characterize him someone who is a little bit of don't reason quite fully grasp of himself for the facts then Joe Biden did show that he is an accomplished speaker. He had some ideas that were quite forward-looking Donald trump had none of those things and he. was questioned at at certain points asking well, what are your plans and there were really no answers. All Donald Trump wanted to do was as you put earlier Tom to shout the loudest because Donald Trump. Now, to win this election, he readings debate either bring big swathes of voters to his cause which I think last night's performance by him is unlikely to do he also therefore if he Can't that might try and do he didn't twenty sixteen and not is to keep people home to stop people effectively to make the atmosphere. So angry and Sophie Brier the people feel so disenchanted with the electoral process that they just don't vote at tall that was successful for him to a certain degree in two thousand sixteen, I think if the polls are correct and the polling arguably. Is more accurate is more detailed is more specific this time around than it was last time. Then I think that it would take a huge number of people to stay home for Donald Trump to sneak victory in the Electoral College. There were some reports after the debate last night that Joe Biden's team that some sources close to his campaign suggesting that maybe Joe Biden wouldn't take part. In the next two debates, if those debates are going to be like we saw last night because really heat does arguably have the most to lose here given his lead is so large at the moment I'm for Donald Trump. This isn't about sort of setting out to vision for America. This is about just sort of keeping and clinging onto power in the angriest way he possibly can, and I think as Chris mentioned I think that was if that's what the goal was that was pretty successful for him. Last night I think that Joe? Biden? Obviously prepared well, obviously prepared in detail but just a lot of those. A lot of those ideas set pieces that he had brought to the debate stage just weren't really allowed to shine through given just had extrordinary. The climate was on stage last night. It's always great to me. Thanks for being with us, tell us in Chris both the Monaco's. Team looking ahead to November Thomas and here in London Chris China here

Georgia voting problems were more pronounced in Black areas like metro Atlanta, says Black Voters Matter co-founder

"The Voting Rights Act passed in 1965 was meant to ban racial discrimination in voting. But many minority voters argues systemic racism still plagues the United States. Electoral process. LaTasha Brown is the co founder of the Black Voters Matter Fund. She speaks with CBS News correspondent Elaine Quiano about voting problems for black voters in Atlanta Back in June during Georgia's primary. It was night and day I went to the I got up early that morning went to my polling site. I waited in line. Three hours. It was actually really nerve wrecking because in light of what might seem to stand in line that long. That was the first time I had actually gone out in the public in that way and standing in line. I had all kinds of concerns around that It took about three hours to vote. And then we were actually going on on the north side of town, which is predominantly 98% white polling place and I get there the assist a voter profile voter that wanted us to accompanying them, and there's no line. There was a way there was no Oh, you know, it was just like seamless And then we found out we got another phone call from another polling site was a majority white polling site. No problems whatsoever in and out voters. However, once leaving that side, I go back to the South Side and Metro in Atlanta. And at this polling site, which was Adam's part, people had been in line at this point. It's one PM People have been standing in line for over five hours that ultimately, even the machines had not been online at 12 o'clock until 12 o'clock that day. And so what we saw is a major difference between what was happening in predominantly white polling sites. And what was happening. A predominately black polling sites and I myself actually experienced that even later that evening after 10:30 P.m. I get a phone call that there was 300 African American voters waiting at a polling site, and so it was up, and so we went out my organization, other organizations Georgia Project if the L U and others We went out to really be able to comfort and and most morale of the voters that were standing out there on Billy just talk, and we gave them pizza and water. The last voter where we were in Union City, the land's voter actually voted on Wednesday because technically it was 12 37 when we're at their poem inside, so it was just a major difference and the voting experience that we saw in predominately African American polling places and what we thought in white polling places in Metro Atlanta really sounds like such a start contrast. What is the black Orders matter. Fun doing to prevent what happened in Georgia in June from happening nationwide in November, so we're doing a couple of things. So one were working in 11 states deeply and 15 more broadly, but we're doing a lot of voter education. We think it's really important that a lot of information misinformation and because of covert 19 people have to vote differently. So you've got to. We've got mail in ballots, absentee ballots, so one. We're doing a lot of older education. Secondly, we're also monitoring and really making sure that we're recruiting people to vote as All workers to work at the polls, also its full monitoring and we're working even with some of our legal partners like a feel you where we actually found a lawsuit against the state of Georgia around postage. And then the third of the fourth and final things were organizing were organizing those grassroots groups, actually, on the front line, really get people to vote early, get people to get the right incorrect information and also monitor the process. Over the document problem. LaTasha Brown, co founder of the Black Voters matter Fund
