"New about osama bin not in those documents. My understanding is is that they will investigate in. What are the saudi linked to nine eleven and the to the hijackers as you as you know lived in san diego and they were helped by. Saudi officials is still never really been clear if saudi officials were just kind of being helpful on their own sort of cognizance or why something will also of course as the role saudi charities supporting elements qaeda The cole case and you know has dragged on for twenty years. Now it's like a scene from sort of dickens novel one of the judges has died With the lead lawyer. In the case died ron motley So this is going home for a very long time. You can understand the frustration of the families on the other hand. I think once we see these documents. I'm not sure there's going to be any revelations that get us any closer to the idea that the saudis somehow really involved in nine eleven after all Al qaeda's main goal was the overthrow the saudi government So suddenly maybe some saudi officials working maybe wittingly or unwittingly to help the hijackers. Saudi saudi charities with links to the saudi government Helping out members in al-qaeda I'll think you'll find but sort of at all in the saudi government. I think that's highly unlikely meantime eugene. Daniel's as we all know there's very different kind of war that this president is fighting against the corona virus. And there's a new poll from cnn showing a decline in approval on joe biden's handling of it. Fifty-six percent approve now as opposed to sixty six percent in april. How concerned is the administration. How much if any did that play into the decision to get tougher with the vaccine requirements. I think they are always angleton. Poland you can look at the re tweets in tweets of the white house staff ron maclean and you know that that's happened looking at polling when it comes to the mandates or the requirements of vaccines that we saw the president announced they are just getting frustrated in the president said basically fed up with the idea that people aren't getting vaccinated that there's this twenty five percent of people who have yet to give one jap and i think what we saw. The president will start administration. Working on doing is making it tough to be unvaccinated in this country right because that is in their minds the way to take this public health crisis across the finish line to make sure that we cannot leave our homes that we can be in person that people are safe. And i think that is what we're seeing the most of this administration. Is you talk about that polling. In april that was a ranch however often good right the vaccines people. Most of us were starting to be able to get those vaccines that was kind of this promise And this goal of july fourth. We're going be out and about and having a good time and that the summer was going to be completely different than it ended up being and now this administration with not just the delta very but also the pushback they extreme pushback from republicans especially republican governors on being a as they put it helpful in this fight against cova nineteen. They weren't expecting that they weren't expecting people not to want to get vaccinated as much as they have. Been pushing back against that right now. So i think they are working on every single ways your sake say every single way they can figure out how to make this happen because they know this presidency depends on them actually getting this pandemic under control. Almost nothing else matters unless people feel like the handle that while especially as we go into the mid term. It's not lost on anybody. Jon meacham that many of the governors are pushing back hardest are also people who are considering whether but run against joe biden having said that how do you see his battle with this pandemic. I view that president biden's not on trial. Here we are. The country is This is a matter of common sense and fairly straightforward Civic engagement my liberty does not extend to condemn injuring you. It doesn't extend to Continuing a pandemic the possibilities of a pandemic that are killing people that is killing people and wrecking So much of our our economic and cultural life and so the president seems to me To be asking us to be sensible and to be good citizens and one of the keys to democracy is that we see each other not as adversaries but his neighbors. And why wouldn't you want to do what you would not just to protect yourself but to protect your neighbor and it's a pretty fundamental insights pretty fundamental conversation that we're having and i think the really one of the disturbing things as we look forward politically and culturally in the country. Is that if we can't unify around our own hells around the health of those we love. What could we unify. Route has has unreason and polarization. It has affected our lives so so much in the last ten fifteen years as it reaching a point where we're honestly willing to die for a political belief that's about a a partisan election in scoring points. It's a really fundamental and in the middle of that fundamental question as you all know. Peter has been this debate about afghanistan the withdrawal particularly some of the people who were left behind and they're still trying to evacuate. We saw that second plane going out today. I wanna play what we heard from condoleeza rice earlier this evening. I do worry with the taliban back in power and with their well-known integration or call collaboration with al qaeda that al qaeda could rebuild. We're going to have to work awfully hard With no eyes and ears on the ground no intelligence assets on the ground. We're going to have to work awfully hard to make sure that that doesn't happen again. So bringing us back to nine eleven. Peer he right in your book on bin laden. Killing bin laden didn't kill his ideas which lingered on among al-qaeda's affiliates in afghanistan iraq north africa pakistan somalia syria and yemen. And they also lived on among islamist militants around the globe. So what do you make of where we are now with afghanistan. Have we set the stage for a new threat. We have i mean the question is one of scale. I think it speaks for itself that the new minister of the interior suraj economy in afghanistan is according to the united nations a leader of al-qaeda. So you have this. Kind of astonishing robotic memorialize the twenty thousand nine eleven and for the first time in history. The leader of al-qaeda is a senior member of the taliban cabinet in control entire country and to say that that is a surprising outcome doesn't really quite cover it. It's not if we'd had this conversation a year ago that would have seemed extremely improbable but here we are on here with bin. Laden was alive. Today i'm sure it can be thrilled by this development. What does it mean for. Us national security. you know. we're still very well. Defended the sixteen people on the no fly list on nine eleven. There eighty one thousand now our intelligence in budget as tripled who was not a tsa no department of homeland security there or bunch of three letter agencies. That now exists so we're a much hotter target. But that said you know. Al-qaeda has two or three years to regroup in afghanistan with a very friendly government They can sunday train people and importantly they can spa people because if you look at the isis attacks in the united states they carried out by people trained by isis simply carried out by people inspired by isis. And we sold forty nine people killed in an orlando nightclub in by an isis inspired terrorist. And i think you know. The taliban will declare its emirate. It will be not dissimilar to the caliphate. Isis to pat in iraq it will prove inspirational to a new generation of jihadists. Unfortunately were sent for another iteration of this. It's not an existential. But it's not the probe some sobering thoughts on this eve of nine eleven peter. Bergen eugene daniel's. John may chen. Thanks to all of you gentlemen and coming up.

"Fell democrats stay in office on monday by traveled to california to campaign with governor gavin. Newsom on the eve of that states recall election politico reports. A university of california at berkeley survey shows quote roughly sixty percent of likely voters polls say they opposed recalling newsom compared to thirty eight point five percent who supported removing newsom. Also tonight organizers of that september eighteenth at the. us capitol are now planning similar events around the nation. Demonstrators expected to gather next saturday to demand what they say is justice for the hundreds of people facing charges. After the january six insurrection. Today those organizers announced more than a dozen additional rallies that state capitals across the country to be held. September eighteenth and twenty fifth on into october with that. Let's bring in our leadoff guests this friday night eugene. Daniel's white house correspondent for politico and co author of each day's edition of politico playbook peter bergen professor veteran global security expert and author of the new book the rise and fall of osama bin laden and jon meacham pulitzer prize winning author presidential historian and the roger share in the american presidency. At vanderbilt university. He occasionally advises president biden on historical matters and major speeches. Good to see all of you tonight. So eugene a former aide confirmed to nbc today that nine eleven george w. bush did indeed call joe biden from a secure location in the mid west and joe biden advised him to get back to washington. You know in times of crisis of president unifies. The nation and president biden spoke of unity in his message. Tonight about nine eleven. It was a recurring theme during his campaign if so tomorrow after he and his country have been through some difficult weeks and obviously we're commemorating that horrific day twenty years ago. What's the tone we expect him to strike. And what are we expecting to hear from him. What's really interesting about nine. Eleven joe biden is just months late months before he became the chair of the senate foreign relations committee and that was the first moment that in a time of national tragedy. That joe biden was the voice that we've seen since then right the voice of compassion. The voice of we're going to get through this. Because he was trying to get on the senate floor he was trying to get those c-span cameras And i've talked to many of his aides who were with him that day and they said he kept trying to get in the capital so that people can see that the government was back in business and so instead what he was doing is going around and talking to people that were on the streets. Time that we're going to be okay. He did it in front of a couple of cameras. He also went on oprah six days after and did the same thing. And so you know we're going to see the same. Joe biden that became that started that day. Talking to americans about you know. There's nothing that we can. We can't do when we're when we team up but we get together. Were always going to be better on the other side of really tough things and i think one of the things that is interesting a story that i've been working on about how nine eleven impacted joe biden is it also made change in reinforce the way he thinks about foreign interventions that is exactly what we saw in afghanistan. So you have these kind of book ins. I'm becoming the senate. Foreign relations committee chairman just months before nine. Eleven and him being the president who ended that war and i think Joe biden sees it that way. His his white house sees it that way and so while. We're not expecting a big speech from him. Because according to john sake he has so much going on the he'll be bounce around. They weren't able to kind of pin that in. But i guarantee that we're going to continue to hear from joe biden about nine eleven and more importantly about what it means to this nation. Twenty years later. How to use the jon meacham that line from the joe biden who was in the senate in two thousand one to the president in days and what is his role now as we look back. Twenty years ago. President biden like president. Bush would rise to indication if if need be got bid You know president. Bush wanted to get back to washington as well is he was asked to. Do it. His father the one conversation. They had that day as i recall President bush senior said he got to get back to washington. They both have a kind of intuitive understanding what the presidency is and it goes back to a will also Sentence that franklin roosevelt wrote Interestingly on september eleventh nineteen thirty two in a little piece for the new york times magazine. Fdr defined the presidency as preeminently a place of moral leadership and moral in that sense Doesn't speak ethical. Behavior beings how we are together into custom and our president is not an olympian figure but a president does have a unifying role as both symbolically and substantively in hours of crisis and the two men bring buried different life experiences. to medical power unquestionably a governor of up president. Bush had been governor or Six years at that point of texas and Joe biden something happened now He's been it was in the senate. Of course i long Became an office in. Nineteen seventy two When richard nixon reelection. And so i think they have a similar view of the presidency. Which is it should be a unifying force. You make decisions you make your best fall and you live with the consequences no matter what people say from minute to minute as much as it's been talked about pair there's a lot we don't know about nine eleven and the families of the victims have been pushing pretty hard for the release of some unclassified documents from the report. We know that some of them said they didn't want the president at the ceremonies tomorrow if he didn't order at which she did. And some of those unclassified portions are going to be released over the coming days months. Do you think we might learn more about osama bin laden any possible saudi culpability. What will you be looking for..

"As the sun comes up over washington. The house yesterday passed the democrats three point five trillion dollar budget resolution a so called human infrastructure plan that will allow the party to begin writing the actual legislation. It passed by two twenty two to twelve party. Line vote with no republican support. The spending bill was supposed to pass on monday but was delayed after a group of centrists threatened to pull their support. Unless the bipartisan infrastructure bill was given priority to win the impasse. A measure promising to vote on the infrastructure bill before the end of september was included in the budget resolution. The house also passed the john. Lewis voting rights some advancement. Act the bill named after the late congressman and civil rights icon. John lewis was approved along party lines to nineteen to twelve. Every republican voted against that measure. The legislation would work to restore parts of the voting rights. Act of one thousand nine hundred sixty five. That were removed one. Such measure requires states with recent histories of discrimination to get federal permission to change their voting laws. Joining us now. White house editor for politico sam stein and white house correspondent for politico and co author of the playbook eugene. Daniel's good to have you both so so sam stein I think the most of the media saying that. Nancy pelosi proved once again. How masterful she was. She did with what she did with this getting it through. But i have one skeptic who keeps texting me saying she gave up she came. She gave up like ninety percent of of what she had demanded early on. I disagree with that. I i you know. Her job is to get a bill passed. It's not not to embrace one ideology of the or the other. If you're speaker of the house what are what are your thoughts on how this is broken down. How did pelosi get the deal. Passed and did the moderates end up dominating the final terms my thoughts are. Who is your skeptic. Because i don't. I'm skeptical of your skeptic. To be honest i think he did what she got to do To your point. She needs to get A sequencing Bill through Her her chamber and she did that which is essentially her forte. She can count votes now. Yeah the the moderates would say we wanted to decouple physical infrastructure bill. The reconciliation social infrastructure bill in. We did that. We got a vote. Certain for the physical infrastructure bill. There's no binding language to what was passed Change your mind. She can do it. She might risk offending those moderates in their votes. But you know legislation as you know. Joe is a simply about getting to be necessary majority and you just push things off and pushing pushing off until you get those numbers anything. This week is evidence. That mostly knows how to do that. And we'll probably have to see the same sort of emotional drama filled house action in late september now but if you're a democrat you put your money on through so eugene. We know the president and white house. Officials were calling around capitol hill particularly to those centrist democrats insisting that they get on board and getting in this provision from nancy. Pelosi that guarantees a vote on the infrastructure. Bill coming up in september so this was again just a procedural vote as as sam said so what happens next year. I think most americans watching don't follow every twist and turn of the house procedure wanna know. When does the bill pass if it's going to pass and when does that money start going out to the states. I consider those people who don't have to watch every procedural vote very lucky. The what we're seeing next is going you know. They're going to fight over. Which actually in the bill. And that's where you're going to see a lot of push pull between the progressives and the moderates here in the house because we know progressive's wanna keep that number of three point five three dollars. They want even more money and more importantly when you talk about how much of the infrastructure they wanna make sure it's in there. They want a lot more than how smarter is but one of the things that we continued to hear from house smarter. It's now after they've said you know we got this deal out of out of pelosi is now. They feel like if the bill she goes with what they went with yesterday. Like seven saying you know. Any house pass reconciliation. Bill asked me written in the with the ability to pass in with fifty. One vote majority so basically. They gave a lot of power to joe. Manchin of chris cinema to say no three point. Five trillion dollars is too much so now the fight over how much how long this can take even with that quote unquote deadline. It could take a lot longer than that. This is a fight. That's going to continue and continue because it's hard to get all of these people together and agree on You know the changing the idea of what infrastructure is in sam's right. The the the most important thing is getting to that vote majority in house. Moderates are facing tough races. Got heimer for example is going to face a tough race and so they don't wanna take really hard votes on things that they don't on things that may raise taxes on people that they represent those are the aspects of. That's going to become more complicated. Everyone's talking about you know what's happening now. September is going to be a very very very busy intense. Smoke month in washington. Dc you have the debt ceiling you have a bill to keep the government funded this infrastructure bill and reconciliation. Bill all Collide and so. That's what people should really be watching. How much of that fight Ends up frustrating both housesmarts and probably more important the house. Progressives who who outnumber moderates by a lot. It really should be a very very busy fall but nancy. Pelosi will be speaker of the house after the next midterm elections only if those moderates get reelected that's where the battle is going to be and who wins in those moderate districts. Instead of all the you know the four hundred gerrymander districts who had who in those thirty five swing districts will determine whether kevin mccarthy are nancy pelosi speaker of the house. Nobody knows that better than nancy. A so a big day. Yesterday jane big day. I know the john lewis would be so proud to see that the john lewis voting right act h. r. Four finally get passed in the house. What happens next. You know this is the bill that you know. The house has really been wanting to get done because they knew. Hr was going to be full of all types of other things that you know almost nothing to do with voting rights but had to do with the know quote unquote democracy reforms so happens nets as it goes to the senate but you still have the same issue we had we were talking about. Hr one right. Where do you get the ten Republican senators to jump on board. I don't see that happening. There's been no indication that all of those senators have moved. We see lisa murkowski of alaska. Say that she supported the idea of hr four weeks ago when she was talking. Publicly with with joe manchin about this and so. That's what happens now this weekend. Actually there's March on washington about on voting rights. Right and so the thing that where you're going to see now in the white house is is working on this vice-president harris has been kind of leading this effort for them. Is the pressure from the outside in to congress is going to be a lot more intense. Right you're going to have all of these rights leaders voting rights leaders calling protesting going on on twitter on tv. Talking about these senators. Who need in there is to get their act together and vote on voting rights. Because the thing that we're hearing from voters and what what is really important. Here's we already did our part. We sent you to washington d. c. So don't tell us now the ways that we might have to get around some of these voting restrictions that are being put in place figure out a loss that we can vote easier. And that's what you're going to continue to him. That's what senators are going to hear whether that changes in the minds is it's hard to see with all of this talk of trying to figure out how to go on voting rights in a reconciliation. Whether that actually happens is and whether that would pass muster is yet to see. We shall see our jeanne. Daniel thank you so much as always. It's great talking to you. Appreciate your reporting and and it. It does seem sam stein. They're not going to get the five they're not going to get get ten republicans on the john lewis. Bill probably aren't going to get five. The question is are they gonna find procedural way to get through there like doing what they do. With supreme court justices and having an exception to the filibuster for civil rights legislation. Yeah i mean that seems to be the actual only vehicle only way forward is to make carve out essentially for Civil rights voting rights legislation from the filibuster..

Fox news is a full on saltine slander machine but this is exactly why we hate. All of the white house press reporters and not just the conservative ones. Nancy cortez from cbs. But she just had disturbed pop because she's so hungry for the headline. Yeah and the funny thing is. They didn't even credit her in that article on fox news by name and they never do with any of them. They all all these fucking reporters sit in that briefing room and fabricate reality so they can have their big moment. When that big moment gets repeated in the headlines the reporter who caused it is rarely if ever even included in the actual story they get no glory but the damage gets done. And it's truly. I believe detrimental to the public. Trust it it's slowly over trump just eroded and it was the fucking liberal fake news media too it's like it just eroded and eroded with tiny little the nuance of sake suggested. I'm here fucking latino. Cnn n. and fucking msnbc and washington post and new york times. They all do that. they do that. Subtle little changed and it's a fucking brainwashing propaganda. It's fucking fake news. that's all it is. And it's until we're all just a mess like we're living in the benjamin secret. Society was with the fucking with the whispering machine. Oh the benedict mysterious society living in the mysterious benedict society. We have a whisper machine. And it's the fucking lame news media. And i'm sorry and it's not like these white house. Reporters are investigative writers ronan farrow and jane mayer their journalism lawn jockeys. Who are two jobs away from being paid twitter trolls. They're fucking tragic. And predictably what inspired nancy's big moment was a fucking tweet. Okay from the thirst bucket rocket. Dick himself yulon mosque. So eli musk's sub tweeted an article the day before about the electric vehicle summit and wrote yes seems odd. That tusla wasn't invited. Odd your child's name. It's true that we hate the majority of the reporters in the white house press corps and pretty much everyone else and that really well. We're strictly there for the soothing. White hot heat of jen psaki but once in a while a rare bird comes along surprises us like an endangered eagle or a gorgeous peacock a delightful presence that doesn't make sense in the toxic travesty of the briefing room but once it lands there. We never ever wanted to leave. And this bird's name is eugene. Daniel's eugene daniel's is a reporter for msnbc who is a recurring contributor on two of our favorite shows morning joe and deadline white house. now we don't need your notes. We're not even fucking with msnbc at night anymore okay. We're strictly dick daytime right now and we love it. We're doing only fun tv at night. Again we're big brother and every other trashy thing As long as it's not on bravo. But i digress eugene. Daniel's good-looking hipster with big hair and mustache. He's not your typical white house. Press corps guy but he sure did have his sexy gay energy at every briefing last week and we were living here he is asking me about student loans or something such as actually can't remember what he asked because his questions are designed to create drama or problems. He's creating more change than anyone in the entire room and he doesn't even need to say a damn word. April.

"Second job. We're also learning that an explosive delta variant outbreak in province town massachusetts. Push to cdc to change mask recommendations for people who have been vaccinated. New data showed three-quarters of those infected in that outbreak were fully vaccinated but thankfully few required hospitalization. The data also suggested vaccinated people could spread the virus the data that we saw massachusetts were corroborated and numerous other places. And that's when we knew we had to take action. Meanwhile more businesses are announcing mandates broadway theater owners and operators say audiences must be vaccinated and wear masks to attend performances when they resume in the fall. Vaccines will be mandatory for walmart employees at its headquarters and disney says all salaried and nonunion employees will be required to receive a covert nineteen vaccine. Meanwhile florida's governor is pushing back on mandates for masks in schools. He has signed an executive order. That effectively banned school districts from enacting mask requirements. And there is also major news tonight about donald trump's efforts to subvert the twenty twenty election the new york times was the first to report that trump pressure justice department officials. Late last year to declare. The election was corrupt even though they had found no evidence of widespread fraud the times reports that trump's demands were made during a phone call on december twenty seventh with the acting attorney general. At the time. Jeffrey rosen and his deputy richard. Donahue donahue's handwritten notes from that conversation have been released by the house oversight committee one note summarizes trump is saying quote. Just say that the election was corrupt. And leave the rest to me. And the our congressman trump did name the lawmakers but at other points during the call the times reports that he didn't mention republican congressman. Jim jordan of ohio scott perry of pennsylvania and senator ron johnson of wisconsin the times also reports congressman jordan and senator johnson deny any role in trump's efforts to pressure the justice department congressman. Perry did not respond to requests for comment from the times earlier today. One member of the house oversight committee was blunt about the implications of these new revelations. I think this is a criminal conspiracy. I believe that the contemporaneous notes that were released today by deputy attorney general at the time donahue clearly reveal out of donald trump's own mouth and a illegal attempt to subvert e election results free and fair election also tonight donald trump was delta major legal blow when the justice department issued an opinion saying congress should get to see the former president's tax returns that reverses decision made in two thousand nineteen by trump administration lawyers. We've also been watching the effort to extend the federal eviction. Moratorium expires tomorrow. A last ditch effort to extend the ban has failed in the house and lawmakers will be on recess for the next several weeks. The measure had prevented the removal of renters during the pandemic with that. Let's bring in our leadoff guests on this friday night eugene. Daniel's white house correspondent for politico and co author each day edition of political. Playbook barbara mcquade a federal veteran federal prosecutor and former. Us attorney for the eastern district of michigan. She worked with the doj during the biden transition and is a professor at the university of michigan's law. School she has also co host of the podcast sisters in law. Along with joyce fans joe wind banks and kimberly atkins store and dr kavita patel. Clinical physician and former senior policy during the obama administration. She's also one of our public health experts and a nonresident fellow at brookings. Great to see all of you. Dr patel what is your view of the threat from delta right now and what do we need to be watching for over the next couple of months. Yeah chris exactly. What i think was the top of everyone the phone inbox messages today. So we have to separate delta which is totally changed the game for vaccinated and unvaccinated people. We know that it has implications for both at chris just to be clear we still have incredible vaccine that we need to get to half the country that statistic you cited with the president's kind of optimism i hope that continues because that's exactly what we find encouraging i do i do and i'm getting bight away. I'm broken down kind of weird. Vaccinations have increased and chris. They're actually increasing in these places missouri. Arkansas nevada where we had had some of the steepest slope increases in cases. I wish i could say the same about florida. The large state but florida is getting more cases per day than they have had any previous surge prior including the beginning of the winter with when we didn't have vaccines for most people. So here's how i would approach delta for anybody kind of watching and wondering what do you really should. The reason we're wearing a mask is really have data from province town and other communities where we could transmit this much more easily than we thought if we are vaccinated to other people and with happy country unvaccinated. We don't know who's unvaccinated a map. Why we're all talking about wearing masks. I think the most responsible thing to do is remember vaccines prevent the disease and death. And they're working the but delvin has changed the game. I think in raise everyone's emotions including mine about how we need to take precaution and it's also raising awareness. Is you mentioned about the governor's preventing schools from protecting children and staff when we know very well chris. That masks children and indoor settings are are absolutely required to keep everyone say including the staff and they should be masked as well even if are vaccinated can transmit this. This great divide is really. I can feel the temperature going up with a lot of people particularly vaccinated people when they have to deal with these unvaccinated people. So eugene give us a sense of how. The white house has been operating kind of behind the scenes this week with regard to handling the surge. What is driving. Joe biden's latest public announcements and then his statement tonight that there may be more to unfold in this strategy. There's an urgency. Because they know you know the one focus one focused walking in was the pandemic that was number one. That was the thing no matter what you wanted to talk to them about. They wanted to talk about cova. Nineteen they wanted to stop by the relief. Bill and as time has gone on. They've done a good job on vaccinations right. We have a lot of people vaccinated one hundred sixty four million by the last time i checked more than four million people so that part of it is working but nature is taking its course in. The doctor obviously knows this a lot better than i do. So we have this delta variant and so this week and last week. They had this kind of renewed urgency to really focus on making sure that people get vaccinated making sure that the whatever the cdc says they've followed and that's something the white house briefing today in asking the prince. Deputy press secretary about this. You know what she made it clear that the their focus is making sure that people get vaccinated because outside of every other questions that we have. They say that's the one the one thing that's really going to get us out of this which we already knew. But it's starting to scare people around the country writing you look in some of those southern states where people are getting back needed all of a sudden that is because the delta variant is scarier than than people have originally thought with the other end with the original cova nineteen and so the white house focused on that and when it comes to how the president is doing it..

It's called the affordable care as the same thing is obamacare. And if you repeal it. Twenty million people will lose their health insurance. I mean people could die listening sweetheart. I'm about to be president going to die. Moments like those were reportedly enough to trigger the former president into wanting the justice department to stop the snl from him my god.

They've yanked off the air impersonations they may have done. But yes there. The vote was in have been cast in the primary race for new york city mayor. But we're not gonna know for a couple of weeks who won. I'll stipulate that the ranked choice voting system prevents us from telling you who want exactly but for now. We know that former police cap in new york city police officer. Eric adams is the earlier with two percent of the first choice. Vote trailing adams or former counsel to mayor de blasio mile widely. She's at twenty. Two percent and former city sanitation. Commissioner catherine garcia with twenty percent of the vote fourth place goes to two thousand twenty presidential candidate andrew yang who lead early in this race but who conceded last night on the republican side guardian angels. Founder curtis sliwa throwback to the joe won the republican primary so he moves onto the general election. But we won't know we'll get into some of these numbers and what happens next because it is a little bit confusing about. Who still could win. If it's not neurotic adams we'll get those numbers and just a minute. Yeah yeah new york voting. Anybody here live in new york. Other than i'm telling you i'm telling you. If republican legislators tried to concoct a voting system like new york city's new york state's man. It would be like jim crow. A eight-point dow is chaos up there. You and it always is and you'll during the twenty twenty election alcon my friends. Have you voted yet to go. I've been in line for like eight hours. I've been waiting to do this for four years. I'm about to go home. It's a mess up there. You hear that from everybody. The people in new york are you talking about the voting. You're talking about and especially with the ranked choice. It's very confusing. Direct a lot of sense to a lot of people. And that's something that would you do all of these conversations about voting being made right. That's what's happening. In new york it's a democratic stronghold but it also doesn't matter because the primary picks exactly and willing we're not gonna to for like two sorry i can't say with a straight face sibley geographic area where you have a lot of time for the nail in ballots to get in to get today.

They look at mail in voting. They look at the absentee voting. Mike so yes it will be a while but it'll be interesting to see how this shakes. This is the first in our country obviously for a city or an electric this size to use ranked choice voting. So we're sort of learning as we go here all willie. I was walking around yesterday largely in the upper west side. But parts of midtown manhattan and. I suspect that i was looking at classic case of voter suppression. That's what this was ranked choice voting. I mean there were a longer lines at the bakery. That i go to the voting. I didn't want to turn out ended up being.

"Good evening once again day. One hundred forty three of the biden administration but it is the trump administration and it's attorneys. General that are under scrutiny. Tonight increasing scrutiny at that twenty four hours after that blockbuster new york times report about the secret seizure of data from house. Democrats in the hunt for sources of leaks in two thousand seventeen and eighteen justice department's independent internal watchdog has now launched an investigation. Senate majority leader schumer judiciary chairman durbin say the democrats will open their own inquiry. They intend to subpoena those former trump attorneys general sessions and bar to testify before lawmakers as of tonight current house intel chairman. Adam schiff and committee member eric. Swale well both democrats from california have both confirmed their records were seized. I think we've shown through to impeachments. A willingness to hold donald trump accountable. Donald trump thinks he's going to be reinstated in august. He's running for re election in two thousand twenty four. You have a number of wanna be donald trump's who are just as corrupt and probably more competent and so if we don't take steps to make sure this doesn't happen again We could really see the erosion. The complete erosion of the rule of law in our country says he and other house intel. Staffers were notified by apple last month. About the trump. doj grand jury subpoenas in february two thousand eighteen. That forced apple to turn over the data in a statement. Today apple revealed quote. The subpoena sought customer or subscriber account. Information for seventy three phone numbers. Thirty six the dresses and that the n. o. or nondisclosure order was extended three times that's a gag order each for a year and that means the company was forbidden to disclose what the government took from them. Microsoft also said it received a subpoena related to a personal email account back in twenty seventeen and as soon as the two year gag order against them. Expired microsoft says it notified the customer who was indeed a congressional staffer in an interview with politico today. Attorney general bar is quoted as saying he didn't recall getting briefed on the moves and was not aware of any congressmens records being sought in a leak case he added trump never suggested he targeted democratic lawmakers and a former senior justice department official tells. Nbc news that when jeff sessions was ag he never proved subpoenas for members of the house intel committee and a leak investigation whether or not either or both of these former trump. Agee's are telling the truth that will likely be born out in public in the investigation. As the current justice department grapples with this latest controversy. It's also focusing on the continuing efforts to curb voting rights across our country in his speech. Today attorney general merrick garland who is under fire. Make no mistake. Made no mention of the seizure of house. Democrats data but did announce plans to significantly expand the department civil rights. Division we will use all existing provisions of the voting rights. Act the national voter registration. Act the help. America vote act and the uniform and overseas citizens absentee voting act to ensure that we protect every qualified american seeking to participate in our democracy. We are scrutinizing new laws that seek to curb voter access and where we see. Violations we will not hesitate to act while all this was happening in washington. President biden spent the day in the uk trying to strengthen our alliances during the g seven summit then taking part in the first of two meetings with queen elizabeth. This is queen elizabeth's thirteenth american president by the way he'll be meeting with vladimir putin on wednesday tonight in an exclusive interview with nbc news. Foreign correspondent. cure simmons. The russian leader offered his views on the current. Us president and the man. Joe biden defeated believe that former. Us president mr trump is an extraordinary individual talented individual otherwise he would not have become us. President he's a colorful individual you may like him or not and he didn't come from the us establishment here not been part of big time. Politics present biden of course is radically different from trump because prison biden is a career man. He's been virtually his entire adulthood in politics. Just think of the number of years he spent in the senate. A different kind of person is my great hope that yes. There are some disadvantages impulsive movements on behalf of the sitting. Us president with that. Let's bring in our leadoff guests on this last night of the week. Susan page veteran journalist bestselling author usa today. Washington bureau chief eugene. Daniel's white house correspondent for politico co author of each day is addition of political playbook and daniel goldman former assistant. Us attorney for the southern district of new york notably also served as general counsel for the house intelligence committee during the first trump impeachment. Good evening and welcome to you all and indeed counselor. It's because of your resume that we asked you to be on tonight. And i'd like to begin with you so you are both doj veteran and worked closely with chairman. Shift for all we know. Your name is on one of these lists and your day that has been shared. What is your Personal reaction to this story. And can you explain to our viewers why this is such a deadly serious matter. I'm horrified to see this and it's not for a lot of the reasons others have said. I think the department of justice has every right broadly to investigate crimes. Bud knowing the people who received these Who receive these subpoenas whose records were sought for these subpoenas. I find it very hard to believe that there was any legitimate. And real and credible evidence that would have led a objective prosecutor to issue these grand jury subpoenas and that means that it was a purely political hatchet job. If that's accurate now we haven't seen what the basis was for the investigation for the subpoenas. Apparently according to reports show office has requested that information and the department of justice has declined to give it to them thus far. But i am very suspicious as to what's behind there and i'm somewhat suspicious of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle within the house intelligence committee and whether they were part and parcel of providing some of these telephone numbers some of these email addresses to the department of justice because they would have had access to more of that information than just about anyone as the majority staff for the house intelligence committee while that last bit is certainly food for thought abuse. Jean what is the white house view of this. Thus far right now i mean this is the white house and we've talked about this before because the the justice department has been very busy in the news over the last few weeks They are kind of staying out it right. This is something that they have talked about. The reason is exactly because of what we're seeing right now right. They wanna make sure that they are not seen as being a political as using the doj in any kind of political and that is what when you talk to people behind the scenes. You talk to them on the record you talk to them on background off the record they will tell you the exact exact same thing. Which is that president biden. Stay out of the doj. He is telling his people to not try to put their thumb on the scale and to let them investigate this. And whatever else pops up you have this inspector general who's going to look into this And see what happened. who did what. And and And who's what was the piano who was seized and they also know in watching what's happening on congress. They know that if if you see Sessions or bar both possibly be subpoenaed and brought in You know in congress. That's going to be kind of a blockbuster day or so of back and forth between congress in those two gentlemen and so. That's something that they're watching as well. How this plays out but definitely trying to stay you know. As far as far as they possibly can build a very very aware paying a lot of it. They susan exactly twenty four hours ago. I tried to warn audience. That people were going to hear the word nick. Sonian tossed around a great deal indeed over the past twenty four hours..

"Not to argue that our democracy is under payroll for the fbi director to compare the cyber attack to the nine eleven attacks. The nine eleven attacks dig nature sacred event in american history to compare the events today to the attacks that we saw on that day ought to be descending huge alarm bells off for americans everywhere on the need to protect what i think.

Brian and jeremy bash given that your resume features a big jobs at pentagon. Ncaa a life immersed in military and intelligence. I'm guessing those words had a special impact for you as well. Absolutely i think when the president stands up in honors those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and stands on hallowed ground at arlington. The final resting place of our heroes. Now what he's saying. Is that these people gave their life. For principal for an ideal for something bigger than themselves and that ideal is the democratic system the democratic institutions the democratic values that underpin our country and underpin our security and our prosperity and when those values are under attack either from internal forces who want to tear down our democratic institutions again be antidemocratic anti rule of law. Anti truth or external actors in foreign capitals. Who don't agree that democracy is the best system and wanna challenge that concept. The american people need to know that the president is going to stand up and fight both of those instincts the internal And the external both threats to our democracy because nothing absolutely nothing.

"Vice President Mike Pence, and Senator Kamala Harris defended their running mates last night in the loan vice presidential debate held in Salt Lake City, Utah, were also digesting the breaking news this morning that the debate commission is shifting the next presidential debate to a virtual debate for the candidates. And that's something that President Trump this morning says he's not interested in. So joining us for more on that is politicos. Eugene Daniel's These latest developments regarding the next presidential debate, Eugene could that put a dagger in debates for the rest of the campaign? It's possible. Good morning. I think the thing that is, you know really important for us all to remember that this is the president who cares a lot about perception, Right and avert the debate doesn't feel you know for him. It would seem it doesn't feel big hasn't presidential You know, I'm assuming the president haven't had to do about a zoo meeting. The rest of us have throughout this process. Go back. Just not something he is used to want to do. The commission didn't say anything about the third debate that they're debated Sect go on October 2nd the the reason that they're doing overto debate because President Trump You know, contracted covert 19. And we still don't really know when the president had his last negative test results. But the first of October is when he tested positive, which is exactly 14 days until the debate is, In fact, the commission thinks that might just be too close. Andi. It's possible that the president could still have it so they just don't know. Fun fact for your people this morning in 1960. The third debate between JFK and Richard Nixon was held remotely. So this isn't something that is brand new and haven't happened before. It happened in the sixties. When you know technology wasn't even on didn't make it as easy as it would be this time around. All right, Eugene. Thanks And so let's switch gears toe last night, the candidates here more cordial to each other. What else could voters have gleaned about the personalities in the positions? They hell did they get a good glimpse of that last night? I think they got a much better than we did in the first debate, right? Both of the candidates for the most part, we're pretty calm. There was moments where they you know, they interrupted each other. Especially, you know, Mike Pence interrupted. Come here. Now. It's the name of her saying, you know, I'm speaking, I'm speaking. But the I think People got to see that, um Kamala Harris as vice president, as vice president would be, you know, ready to be an attack dog for Joe Biden. She did that quite a bit. Last night. She went after President Trump and his hands of the clone a virus to one that the President trump in his handling of the economy on and that happened pretty much all night and What you cannot have already seen from the last four years of Mike Pence is that he's ready to defend President Trump in their decisions on all night. I thought some something that was most interesting is both of them does quite a bit of quote oven and kind of stuck to their talking points quite a bit. And Susan Page with the debate moderator had a hard time I think, getting them to answer some of those some of the really key questions. For coming. Harris the one about whether or not they would pack the court and for vice president tents. You know a question about whether or not what what he would do to make sure that President Trump accepted the results of the of the election and both of those over the important questions that voters still don't know. Political reporter Eugene Daniels. Your ability to innovate relies on more than emerging technology. It's about a new way of working.

"Area could be down to 48 late tonight. It's 8 10. Campaign 2020 on w T o P. It appears the Republican leadership in the Senate is not only going to vote on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee this year. The goal seems to be to get that person installed before the election. The president is expected to make his pick on Saturday. Judge Amy Cockney Barrett was back at the White House for a second visit today, according to CNN. Is this shaping up to be a major Republican victory that may even supersedes some of the losses? The GOP suffers in Congress and even the White House. We talked About that, with Eugene Daniel's political reporter for political For a very long time, conservatives were the group of people who cared about the Supreme Court. More right. There was one of the top reasons they went out to vote. It was something that conservative lawmakers talked about him all the time, and they were running for office. There was something in 2016 that we saw. We had another open seat, and that was something that made a lot of people hold their nose and vote for President Trump, no matter the things that she was saying on the right one human, not just a Supreme Court justice. I picked one human whose death could energize Democrats to vote and take the Supreme Court seriously as a campaign issue. It is Ruth Bader Ginsburg, right, notorious RBG, someone who was an icon not just in the world of law, but also for feminism. And just as an American who has helped move us forward to more quality, and that's something that people left and the right have been saying in agreeing about so it does seem that this is something that's already gotten a lot. People were left very excited. You look at the amount of money that's been raised. That tells us money always tells us who's more excited, and Democrats are giving a lot of money to different Senate campaigns after Blue posted numbers they've never seen before. That's how a lot of people get their money through to their campaigns. And that is something that is going to be interesting to watch and interesting to see. Because you know, this is an election where we've continued to say like this is the thing that defines this election and we started with impeachment. At the beginning of this year. We've gone to Cova 90. In the you know the race and anti racist protest in this country, all the things that we thought were going to be the dining part of this election in RPGs. Death is another thing that is going to help define and already very close election so there may be some political prices to pay by some incumbent Republicans. But in the meantime could you also argue the GOP has already won, provided this all goes smoothly for them in terms of the announcement and then the confirmation process and installing this sixth Serve a tive member of the high bench. Absolutely outside of the electoral concerns. For some of those senators like you outlined. This is what power is about something that politicians like to talk about. A lot, especially publicly is power and importance of it and how you build it. And that is exactly what we're seeing. The Republicans could say, Hey, we won, so we get to do what we want, which is really what's happening right? And that's exactly in 2016. It was we have the power to block Merrick Garland from getting on the Supreme Court, so we're going to But they leaned into this biting ghoul as they called it, where you couldn't have a Supreme Court justice happened and feel that seat with an election year. Republicans are doing exactly what you do when you have the power to do what you want and whether or not they're going to be able to do this in the time allotted is going to be really interesting because it's going to be very quick less than 50 days till election day. But more importantly, what happens if President Trump loses, and they still want to do that during the lame duck period? I think that's more. The more interesting question because if that's something That happens what Democrats doing retribution when it went in. If they have power is something that's going to be interesting, and maybe a little scary for a lot of people watching as the two parties continue to battle it out for wielding power in ways that we've never seen before.

"In the suburbs. It's 7 10 New on w T O P. It is now far less likely Corona virus vaccine will be cleared by Election Day. It's because the FDA is expected to release a tough new standard for an emergency authorization of a vaccine as soon as this week, The Washington Post reports. The agency is doing this to boost transparency and public trust as it makes this huge decision about whether a vaccine is safe and effective, the paper says. Public Experts are increasingly concerned President Trump's repeated predictions of a Corona virus vaccine by November and administration interference and federal science agencies may cause you to reject any vaccine that you believe is tainted. There's no comment so far from the FDA. That vaccine news comes as the nation mourns the death of 200,000. Americans from Corona virus. Dr Anthony Fauci of N I H calls the number of deaths stunning and very sobering. But White House press secretary Kaylie Mack Ineighty says If President Trump had not acted quickly, we could be talking about millions of deaths by now. We talk about all this with Eugene Daniel's political reporter for Politico, Dimitri. There are two different worlds that we're living in the world that has been created by President Trump and the Trump administrate. Asians where you know he did everything he could have done at the very beginning. He acted without any kind of concern for his political world and all of those good things that we know that President Trump told Bob Woodward right, that he wanted to play it down. And then he continued to play it down. It seems that that had an effect on the way that people, especially people who would vote for President Trump, I may be on the right side of the aisle view this issue right call the 19 when you speak to trump supporters of some boulders a lot Of the things you hear things, he said himself that Democrats are using it as a hoax that it is something that's going to go away. When it got hot. It did not. You know, that means that there are true from Wells. And then there's the world where Dr faculty and you know a lot of scientists and epidemiologist live there, saying We're still dealing with this in very serious weight, and it's not going away and his death and I'm going to go away if we don't wear masks If we don't you know, practice social distancing If we keep having huge crowds, All of those things are kind of the exact Opposite of what President Trump is saying, and definitely what he's doing, right? We've only seen him in a mask. Maybe a couple of times this entire six or seven months that we've been dealing with all of this for one wonders if minds are changed in any way. Sadly, if you lose a friend or a relative, that would be a way that our mind has changed, or an opinion has changed about this. But otherwise do we continue on these two parallel tracks? I think that's right. For a while. Most of the cold bid 19, you know, serious illness. Says most of the deaths were happening in cities happen in urban areas that happened to be in states that lean bluer than leaned further to the left cities. Places like New York places that California so for a very long time, President Trump could say, you know, do you know anyone who's sick and the answer was up for a lot of people in rural America? There wasn't the lot of them didn't know what he wanted something about Americans that in my time, a za reporter I've realized is that it's really hard to explain and convince someone of something if it does not happen to them if they don't Have skin in the game, but they don't know anyone who asking in the game. So you know, as we move forward to the election on November 3rd, it's very possible. We're going to keep having a faction of people who believe you know this was a hoax. They haven't been touched back Holden 19 in any real way, and they are ready to get back to the minors..

"Named Charlie Kirk. He founded turning Point Yusa in 2012 when he was 18. He's very active on YouTube and in a way encapsulated what supporters like so much about the president. All of this changed dramatically in 2015. When a billionaire named Donald Trump put his own life of luxury on the line. From that moment, he came down that famous escalator, He started a movement to reclaim our government from the rotten cartel of insiders that had been destroying our country. We may not have realized it at the time, but Trump is the bodyguard of Western civilization and joining us live on Skype. Tonight. Politicos Eugene Daniels with some thoughts on the first night of the convention. What would you make of Kirk's words? Eugene or you don't have to go there. You can address other speakers tonight. What are your impressions so far? Yeah, well, I'll start with drama. Kirk. I think something that we were hearing from President Trump in a lot of people as we were heading into this week is that this was going to be a week of positivity. Especially compared to as they said, You know, the negativity of the Democratic National Convention. Kurt kicked it off and made it very clear. That wasn't exactly what we're going to get. What you just heard there was, as he put it, a warning. Two Americans all over the country. I think the speaker for me that stood out the most. The best speaker is Max Alvarez. He's a well known GOP donor in Florida. His family fled Cuba under cast. When he talked about that he talked about what freedom into him. He began to cry on stage. Andi, I think for a lot of people that no matter what party or from, you know, people have been talking to people on day started as something that was really affecting and you know, Kimberly Guilfoyle people have been talking And how loud she was speaking, because you have to remember there speaking to an empty room, they're in a different way. Then they did the DNC. But since he had been working for weeks and weeks, six weeks, I think unjust there on rollcall video on DH, so the Republicans have put this together in about a month on DSO. Really, What we're seeing is a broadcast of a normal convention in an empty room, which which is playing a little bit different than what we saw last week. Let's hear just a little bit because it's happening. Now, this is Senator Tim Scott. Republican senator speaking live with conventional stand because you see, I am living my mother's American dream. My parents divorced when I was seven years old, and we moved in with my grand parents into a two bedroom home with me, My mom and my brother sharing a room and one bed. My mom works. Sexual remarks there live from South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. Eugene. Why is he one of the headliners tonight? He's one of the headliners because he's the only black senator on the GOP side in Congress. To put it bluntly, the party has knows they have issues with black voters, especially for all types of different reasons. And historically on DH Senator Tim Scott is the future of the party. He's also someone who has worked with President Trump. He kind of told the line of calling out President Trump every once in a while, but, you know, usually being kind of The border. What the president is saying and what others are saying in the party, So I think that he's someone that they're trying to show the American people. As you know, we have diversity within our party, and it's not. You know, if you watched the whole the whole, you know, 2.5 hours. It doesn't really about that. Well, yeah, let's finish with the Vernon Jones. He's a Democratic member of the Georgia Statehouse also happens to be an African American, and he spoke a bit earlier. I have news for Joe Biden. We are free. We are free people with free minds. And I'm part of a large and growing segment of the black community who were independent thinkers. And we believe that Donald Trump Is the president that America needs to lead us forward. So a Vernon Jones Eugene would be another person to perhaps amplify that message. You were you were describing Absolutely in something, you know, As you said, he's a Democrat and something we start the DNC last week were multiple Republicans and some of them calling themselves former Republicans who talked about how Joe Biden was important for the country. It looks like they're going to try and do similar things this week. We have you have burning Jones like you just said it like you got everyone just heard, but also they're going to be people who voted for Clinton 2016 who say they're going to vote for Trump. This year, and that's something that the Trump campaign has been trying to push. The remind people is that it's not just one way. It's not just, you know, Republicans going to the Democratic side. It's happening the opposite. And Vernon Jones. I mean, he hit Democrats on all types of different things. He hit them on taken advantage of the black vote and not taking And I really doing enough for black people. Hey, what as he put it? President Trump doing more for black people than you know any president has ever done, which is something that the president often says as well. So that is going to be as this week moves forward as we see that happening. How many Democrats they're going to get to join in? Because it was something that was quite quite striking at the DNC to see you know Cindy McCain a video with her. She is the wife of former Senator John McCain in Arizona, Also former governor Her and 2016 presidential candidate, John Keith Coo eyes the moderate Republican who came out and talked very highly of Joe Biden. And there's going to be interesting to see if they're able to replicate that in the RNC this week. It's always good to go over this stuff with you, Eugene. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me have a good one. And you Eugene Daniel's live on w T o P with political sports at 15 and 45 brought to you by your local Honda dealer. Don't settle for less than 100.

"Democratic National Convention. In a video. Mississippi congressman Bennie Thompson called it to order just minutes ago. People call the 48th quadrennial Democratic National Convention toe order. Thompson is the convention chair. And now Eva Longoria, the actress who is serving a sort of Ah, moderator tonight is speaking with everyday Americans about some of the struggles that they've had since the pandemic and perhaps even before, and we're hearing from a teen activist from West Orange, New Jersey, Marley Diaz, So I hope that here from now you know we get to go back and be saved and be protected, who will still have these conversations and still have a a new possibility in the new world? So there's a little bit of pageantry, ahs. We listen live and now to the substance of what people are going through and let's take you live now to Eugene Daniels. He's covering the campaign 2020 for Politico joins us Live on Skype. I mentioned the pageantry. There was an interesting open opening segment, Eugene where we saw people in all 50 states singing the national anthem, and they were all in these little boxes almost like they were all On zoom or some type of virtual communication channel. We're just barely into the start of this thing. But what would you say about the opening minutes and the impressions that you got as we get started tonight? Yeah, I think so far it has been and looked kind of how most of the openings look for for Democratic national conventions. Right? Ah, whole bunch of everyday Americans getting together singing talking about kind of what The theme is included. The theme for the DNC is going We the people of this year you're still going to and I think people are going to start realizing this, especially as we get later in the evening. You're losing a lot of that excitement that comes from the DNC and the orange. See right Conventions are about exciting your base, exciting people that maybe aren't really sure if they want to vote for you and you lose so much of that when you know you're looking right into your camera on and maybe looking a little bit more like a hostage video exciting that had invented exciting speech. It's also concerned for people for the future of both of these parties, right? Because a lot of the the big thing that comes out of conventions is who's the future of the party looking without a convention speech you don't have a Barack Obama's president in 2008 right were first introduced to so many people, including Bill Clinton back in the day at the at a convention before they actually ran for president, So that's going to be something they're going to figure out and we're waiting to see how they do that. If you'll forgive the sports metaphor, with the Democrats currently far ahead in the polling, do they just protect the football until early November or is there are a lot of work that they have to do by way of motivating people to vote? Making sure they brand themselves is a diverse party and, of course, explain to the American people what their plans are, rather than just slapping the current president. You are a cultural boss. I'm with you on that. Ah, you're exactly right. The Democrats have got to find a way to share their version of America share their vision for American. That's something that you know it's because we live in this 24 hour news cycle. A lot of us that cover this all the time. Feel like they've already done that We We know what they think and what they plan to do. But this is the first time that a lot of Americans are going to see and hear. From the leaders of the Democratic Party about what they plan on doing for, you know, four years if they were to win in November on DH, they're goingto have to do more than just a Donald Trump bad right like that. Is that something that it didn't work in 2016 for Hillary Clinton? They, Joe Biden is goingto have to figure out a way to stay. You know, we tried this. We tried Donald Trump. You need to try something knew. And that's what we're going to continue to here all week long, and they're you know you have Michelle Obama coming up tonight. Her probably most famous moment Asses. First lady was her speech in 2016 where he said. When they go low, we go high. And so we're probably gonna hear some of that from her tonight. Bernie Sanders is right before, so he's probably going to knock some people little bit, but Michelle Obama were expecting her to give him more hopeful message for America on DH. That's probably we're going we're going to hear at the end of every night from a lot of these people always appreciate hearing from you, Jean. I hope we can talk again later in the week. Sounds good. Thanks so much. Thank you. Eugene Daniel's live on Skype covering campaign 2020 for politico and let's check in on the convention.

Daniel's for politico quote Yang is calling going for a set of policies to bring down pharmaceutical drug costs use technology to help rural and low income people access care beef up mental health dental vision vision and reproductive health benefits and keep lobbyists and executives out of policy-making and quote there are multiple useful ideas in this policy document document. One of them is about drug costs. And it's called International Reference Pricing Long Story. Short drugs should cost the same amount in all developed countries and there are other notable items in there including encouraging doctors to work in rural areas of the US in exchange for paying off their student debt. So expect back to hear Yang mentioned some of this stuff tonight next up mayor Pete Buddha judge he wrote an op Ed for his yon on Tuesday titled An era where every Latino is empowered and belongs in it he tells. L. Story of Rosen. Lena and one survey IRA who immigrated from Mexico and now live in South Bend Indiana where they run an ice cream shop. He then pivots into a series as of policy proposals from the OP. Ed Quote Latinos are less likely to get a bank loan and more likely to live in poverty so we will support Latino owned businesses and Latino entrepreneurs including investing up to ten billion dollars in federal capital to establish a fund for underrepresented the entrepreneurs will implement fifteen dollar federal minimum wage we will ensure equal pay and promotion for equal work because it is unacceptable. dateable that a Latina makes just fifty four cents for each dollar earned by a white man and quote the next Senator Elizabeth Warren. Her latest policy proposal was titled My Plan to Fight Global Financial Corruption. It begins by talking about corruption. In Russia and other countries then quickly pivots to president trump's associates use of shell companies many of them registered in Delaware aware to hide money from foreign sources lest we forget. There is another notable candidate in this race and on this stage who represented Delaware in the Senate for a decades that is of course Joe Biden. Warren's plan suggests new requirements to disclose who is actually behind every corporation her plan would create legislation relation requiring companies from other countries to disclose this information when transferring money into or out of the US and she would also tackle the same problem at home. Tom While I'm not sure whether Warren can use this as a political tool against to biden the Delaware connection is a possibility so watch for this idea of shell all companies registered in Delaware. Possibly coming up tonight Next stop former vice president. Joe Biden talked about him quite a bit yesterday so I will just read from an article. He recently published about anti-semitism quote. We we have to fight the pernicious and persistent evil of anti-semitism at every level of our society starting with our political leaders. My dear friend. The late Tom Lantos had a saying that. I've quoted frequently. He said the veneer of civilization is paper. Thin we are it's guardians and we can never rest. That means we have to stand up and speak out every time anti-semitism rears its head because silence can all too quickly you become complicity and quote.
