Amy Coney Barrett: Trump Supreme Court nominee sidesteps questions

"Judge Amy Cockney barrettes getting a lot of pointed questions. For members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Let's go live to Capitol Hill, W. GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, fired off several questions on major legal matters, including abortion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided, if I express a view on a precedent, one way or another, whether I say I love it or hate it. It signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case, And in response to questions from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, Barrett made it clear she's had no discussions with the White House about how she might rule in cases involving the affordable care act or the upcoming election. It would be a complete violation of the independence of the judiciary for anyone to put a justice on the court as a means of obtaining a particular result. Republicans have praised Barrett during the hearing, which is now in a brief break, Senator John Cornyn pointed out. She has no notebooks in front of her, except for a small white pad.

"President Trump's nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg went through today day one of confirmation hearings. News nation Washington correspondent Ashley Kits, supporters and opponents of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett demonstrated outside while inside the Supreme Court nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats like Senator Cory Booker painted a dim picture of how barrettes confirmation could impact the nation. States may write laws. They could subject women who have miscarriages. Two investigations to ensure they didn't have abortions. California Senator Dianne Feinstein focused on Barrett's potential role in striking down the affordable care Act. The case that's before the Supreme Court next month, Judge Barat You've been critical of Chief Justice Roberts for his 54 opinion. Upholding the law. Although Democrats say the Supreme Court seat should not be filled this close to an election, Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham says there's no reason to delay She's been a circuit court judge at the seventh Circuit. Since 2017. She was confirmed to that position. To buy parts with about partisan vote. She has heard hundreds of cases in that capacity. For her part, Judge Barrett promises to be impartial. I believe Americans of all backgrounds deserve an independent Supreme Court. That interprets our constitution and laws as they're written. I believe I conserve my country By playing that role.

Opening day of confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett

"The day it is the opening day. Of the confirmation hearings for Amy Cockney Barrett. We took Senator Lindsey Graham's opening statement. He's the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in their role of advice and consent. We now return to Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, continuing with her statement, interpret law. Is central. I isn't centralized in one person or one branch of government. That's much. That's not a mistake. You all know, all right, Chuck Grassley's now up my feet is delayed. We had a live news feed, and then we've got a delayed feet. I was thinking that each member but only the ranking member and the chairman would speak. And then Amy Cockney Barrett would speak. Apparently they're going to go through will monitor it going to go through all the members first, which there's quite a few members on the committee when it's Kamala Harris is turn. We will. Dip back in and see what tone she's going to take. But the rest of them will see how it goes. They're all sitting there in the room. Most of them are sitting there in the room, so We'll see how it goes. It's a combination of in person and remote full of members of the committee have tempted positive for covert 19. So they II see, though Mike Leigh is sitting there. He was one of those members. He's probably been cleared, though, so I want to hear Kamala Harris and I want to hear, Of course, KONI barrettes opening statement, which I think is important to everybody. But as we're waiting for this to start, I want to play a couple of clips for you. Let's get cut one ready here just because this site issue of court packing It is. The concept of court packing is very specific and has been What it is. Forever packing the court's meaning, expanding the size of the court, the number of people on the Supreme Court because you're not happy with the makeup of it or the perceived makeup of it. Nobody really knows how these people will vote on anything until the case is decided. But That's what court packing means. Joe Biden and the Democrats are changing that very definition. Over the weekend. Joe has been asked this a lot, and if you notice he's not really pressed on it. Each reporter kind of has to go in and check that box. But they don't really hammer him down on that and refused to ask anything else and really, really keep going back at him, as they would if he were a Republican. And over the weekend, he said something very disturbing. To be honest with you, and it became the new talking point. The court is being packed now. I already said last week that the American public doesn't deserve to know what he would do on the issue. Right now. They don't deserve to know elect him and you'll find out I'll tell you what I'm going to do on this. After the election. But listen to Joe Biden set the tone and set the terms for what constitutes court packing, redefining the term right before your very ears cut one. Go ahead what they're going to focus on what's happening right now, In fact, now by the Republican after the boat has already begun. His cord is being packed. Now there's court is being packed. Now The court is not being packed. Now there is a vacancy on the court, and this became the mantra for the left. Over the weekend, and it was from journalists to elected Democrats and every other flavor of Democrats. In between. They ran with this, of course, Donald Republicans are packing the court. Republicans have not expanded the number of federal judges whatsoever. The Republicans have filled vacancies. We'll get into this more later on in the program, but It's important to note that they complained 200 nominees have been pushed through the Senate. Only because Democrats change the rules in 2013 because they wanted to fill those vacancies. They were warned. Don't get rid of the filibuster. You'll regret it sooner rather than later. The next year, they lost the Senate. So they regretted it much, much sooner. This is them, taking their own medicine and not liking it very much. It's their own damn fault will be back after news.

"feinstein" Discussed on Vox's The Weeds

"A lesson Democrats have needed. To learn I think you know when we talk about lessons learned here I think it's useful to sort of put a pin in a distinction here because one thing about the Senate is it's unusual rules of parliamentary procedure and another thing about the Senate is unusual apportionment and these are distinct attributes of the United States Senate right around the world. Typically, a legislature operates under a one person one vote world I I don't WanNa say it's unheard of add to have a disproportionate upper house of legislature. But another thing you see in comparative studies that normally. Countries that have a non-proportionate. Countries like Australia countries like Switzerland, the upper house's less powerful than the lower house. But in America, the Senate is more powerful than the house because of the advisor could set will s- right if you had to pick only one body to control, you would want the Senate and the Senate is also more disproportionate than the Australian Senate or the German Africa Scott Bundesrat I think. So it's it's a very unusual. In terms of its apportionment and power. Then separately, it has this a goofball at procedural dorms that you were talking about with the filibuster and I think it's I think it's useful in this regard to take a trip down down memory lane you always like to talk about the Medicare vote count which was in an era of strong filibusters but the the Johnson Administration you know they just in their internal documents. They were counting to fifty right like the view you I'm going to tell the story. It is my favorite story. Yeah. So it's not a lynching bell. So yeah. So this is actually and I I WANNA give I WANNA give credit here's David. Berkman a political scientists at Berkeley who actually turned me found this document sent it to me way back in my Washington Post days, but there is this amazing memo that Mike Mattos, who is the Senate liaisons of the person who runs Senate relations for? President. Lyndon Johnson. So Lyndon Johnson like knows the Senate pretty well gets good. GotTa run it from Mike Manado sends on his boss Lyndon Johnson a note after the nineteen, sixty four elections and he says that if all the senators who won and lost our president accounted for in the new Senate, then Medicare will pass fifty five to forty five. So they are not even they do not even think that they need to plan for the possibility of a filibuster as you sort of gestured to their matt in this period. The only thing that gets routinely filibustered our civil rights laws, I? mean. This is why a lot of people call the filibuster Jim Crow relic true filibuster was invented around Jim Crow. But what is true is at the usage, the filibuster to impose a supermajority requirement on bills passing forward. So of what what Adam Gentlemen would. Would argue in in his book which is coming out soon, I'm called kill switch and his very good hugh-paul sort of like the rule twenty, two filibuster that was pioneered by the southern block in the in the Mid Twentieth Century but he's really only used civil rights bills and then later got picked up as party polarization accelerated by by parties. But Medicare they didn't think Medicare, would get filibustered I mean and back then you would need a two-thirds two thirds vote to break a filibuster so they. Can You? Can you imagine Medicare, it's wild. It's a totally wild. It's a totally wild thing to really sit in and try to understand how differently American politics worked. You know just a couple of decades ago and then something that that I really think people should appreciate If they want to understand you know similar what you're talking about about Joe Biden's mentality right and his You know his thinking Democrats thinking about this is one of the very first. Stories that I covered in DC had to do with the Medicare reform that happened during George W. Bush's administration and this was a very convoluted legislative saga. But the upshot of it was was that one version of Medicare prescription drug benefit passed the house and another version passed the Senate the one that passed the senate had big bipartisan majority behind it. You know classic Senate bipartisanship filibuster leading to compromise whatever, and then they went to a conference committee which. You may remember from the schoolhouse rock video and how a bill becomes a law, but actually has not been used in a long time So it's a conference committee and everybody is sort of pre theoretical understanding going into it was that the conference committee process was going to have to be bipartisan because the Senate bill was bipartisan and House Concert right-wing Congressional people didn't like this whole idea anyway So the final legislation that emerged was. Expected to look more like the Senate bill, the bipartisan belt in the house belt but it didn't he instead the conference committee came out with something that was quite close to the Republicans bill in the House and Max Baucus Zell Miller though defected and they supported this in conference committee and it wound up coming to the floor of the Senate and it passed there was something like fifty four votes in some people thought that Democrats should Philip. Right, 'cause they didn't have sixty votes for There were calls for Filibuster we didn't have twitter at the time, but if twitter had existed, left-wing twitter would have been talking about this but Democrats didn't filibuster it and what they said at the time was like, well, you can't filibuster conference report and You I was in the office and you know so that's interesting. It's not true though that like you can't Filibuster a conference committee report, there's a rule that says that it was just the. Over time we were no longer in that like nineteen sixty understanding of the Senate rules but as of two thousand and four, which was not that long ago right the understanding was you couldn't do a filibuster that way and that bog as the story of the store the Senate in recent decades is simply mistaking word can't for the word didn't exactly. And so the critical thing I think to understand about, Joe? Biden and a lot of democratic senators is that they were they in two thousand four you know what I mean like it. It feels like a lifetime ago if you're young person like two thousand four with some very long time ago. But just in political terms, it seems like a whole other. But. So many of our people in politics still come from that era right and to a lot of them that was a better era and like it's not that far gone in the past and so their instinct when anything happens like in two thousand, seven Democrats have the majority in the House and the Senate, and their idea is that they are going to pass a bunch of popular bills and either Bush will have to sign them or have to veto them and look bad. But Senate, Republicans just filibuster absolutely everything and so Democrats were like not happy about that. But there thought at the time was like we need to go back. We need to go back to the old ways and what you're saying is that it's only now because of the hardball really around A. The Supreme Court seeds that Senate Democrats are giving up on the idea of of going back to a set of norms that you know were abandoned. Really, quite recently, and it Senate Democrats themselves I mean if you if you ask a Democrat, like what happened in the judicial wars, they will say that this garland thing was the most outrageous thing. They ever saw Republicans. You know they talk about Bork I think pretty implausibly but less implausibly they say that shortly after that Medicare prescription drug incident I was talking about Democrats started filibustering some of George W Bush's circuit court appointees and traditionally. Filibuster used for that right and Democrats will say, will the reason they started doing? That is Republicans changed the Blue Slip, world which sort of let home state senators object to be. An eight at the time. This was seen as a real. Norm violation by by Democrats what caused mark touching it to coin the phrase constitutional hard ball because everybody agreed that like you were allowed to do that it just you know was one of those things that just wasn't done but then Democrats started doing it but they had a even as Democrats did that they sort of their goal was to step back from from the brink and and now you're saying that they're ready to give up on that. Yeah. Let's take a break and then I wanna come back and talk about the very particular dynamics of Supreme Court nominations in this.

Who would replace Kamala Harris as California Senator?

"We still have 12 weeks before the November election, Voters will decide between President Trump on my vice President Mike Pence against former Vice President Joe Biden and current Democratic vice presidential nominee California Senator Kamala Harris. But in Harris are victorious. Governor Newsome will have to appoint a new senator to serve the next two years here in California, and well, there's been early speculation on names like State Attorney General Javier Becerra and San Diego State Senator Toni Atkins. Another elected officials told the governor he's interested. Mayor of Imperial Beach Search, the DEA sent a note to the governor with a picture of him in a business suit with a surfboard and water, nothing his intention to seek the appointments If the Democrats win because Pamela Harris may become our next vice president, I notified Governor Newsome like everyone does not is via Twitter that I'd like to be on the collection left to be the next U. S. Senator put out Open seat. And I think it's important to have someone who's not from the insider circle in Sacramento on someone that's ready to help clean up California and fight for our planet and our ocean from day one. Well and yes, I think it was the announcement that color base attention picture of you in a business suit with your surfboard. Right. The water's edge. Kind of embodying what it means to be from Imperial Beach. Yeah, you know, and you're a bitch, maybe small. What? We're mighty, You know, I've seen the names of some of the more high profile candidates and you know the reality of California's in trouble countries in trouble, And so we need someone who's used to doing things without a lot of resource is gonna support. You could get things done quickly, and that's experience. I've had thereby be in that experience that we need for the next senator from California and as the native Senate, California someone who rested 500 California the lifeguard for the state and for the city of Baby, I'm ready for the job and just look forward to being considered by Governor Newsome. Well, obviously you've worked with the governor, and in fact, you've worked as high as going to the White House when it comes to the sewage issue along the border, with the issues coming out of Mexico to impact San Diego County Imperial Beach, the city of San Diego. Everywhere else here with its impact that profile of yours with that fight has gone to the highest level. Yeah, so you know, unfortunately, because sewage issue is continuing to happen. I ve had to reach out from everybody from the president of Mexico, too. You know, President Trump We've met Got Governor knew someone. The governor of Baja California. So yeah, felt the times were like more like an international diplomat rather than a mare. But that is good practice good experience for what it takes to be an effective senator. To give you credit. Since the minute she was in office, she has support our first queen of the border. She's put a lot of attention on period Beach. In fact, her California director came to Imperial Beach to visit her stop is in very involved in this issue, so she's been great on the tissue as well as Senator Feinstein, but it's time for a new direction and and that's what I'm putting My My name in the hat or handed the ring And you know there is a perception out there at some points where you know, San Diego geographically being where it is. So we feel that the state of times may forget about us or things like that. You know, putting San Diego right back up there and kind of raising our hand and saying, Hey, what about us? Yeah, you know, Right now we have two senators from Northern California from the Bay area, So obviously we need a lot more Southern California repetition and the fact that Southern California needs a lot of help. We've seen that during this covert Christ of some of the highest rates, obviously in the country in Southern California, especially here in South San Diego and along the border, So we're in trouble have the highest rate of unemployment in the state along the borderlands question. Imperial County so We're in trouble. We need to get someone to replace Senator Harris. She gets elected vice president who's fighting for California and every California and not just the ones who can write campaign checks, right? I think that's important to make sure that someone who works for every California In every corner of state and every family and put families and kids first for California

House, Senate pass bills to study the number of cancers striking military pilots

"PASSES BILLS TO STUDY MILITARY PILOT CANCERS FROM mcclatchy Washington bureau little bit late on that. I did I was GONNA say anything but okay. The Department of Defense would be required to identify how many of the current or former aviators have been diagnosed with cancer in in bills passed by the House and Senate this week a study long sought by military pilots who have questioned why there are so many serious illnesses in their community. The legislation was included in both chambers versions of the seven hundred and forty billion fiscal year twenty, twenty, one national defense authorization. Act following a series of stories by mcclatchy on the alarming clusters of cancer among current or former military aviators. I'm one of those including four commanding officers at a Premier Navy weapons testing base in California who have died of cancer since two thousand fifteen. Oh let me clarify I'm not one of those that has been diagnosed with cancer but I am a former military aviator. Two versions of the twenty one, twenty, one spending bill will now go to house and Senate negotiators to iron out differences before being sent to President Donald Trump to be signed into law. Betty semen the wife of one of the four commanding officers at Naval Air Weapons Station China. Lake. died of cancer. Welcome to the important milestone. She says since loving since losing I'm sure she loved him too since losing my husband I have met too many other families on the same unwanted journey. We all share a universal prayer that no other family will have to go through a similar loss today brings us one step closer to that realization Miss Seaman said in an e mail to mcclatchy but that's a great name. Her husband's name was a commander Semen S. e. a. m. a. n., and he is a naval officer. Wow that was he was in the if he was in Canada heath now be a sailor. So his last name. Is they're getting rid, of semen. Because of the obvious connotations. Changing the position to say okay. Let's see. Senator Dianne Feinstein from California introduced the military aviators. Cancer Incidence Study Act after mcclatchy reported that military aviators may be at a higher risk of developing certain cancers. Let's see. There was a little bit of information here. The database would include every service member since nineteen sixty one who served in an aviator role. The legislation defines aviators, members of the aircrew such as pilots and Napa who they included navigators in their two. Members of the grand create usually asleep on me. I did that on purpose because we have several navigators listen to the show. Let's see. WHO SHOULD WE? I'm offended at airline pilot guy dot com has the email address. And members of the ground crew who worked on the aircraft pilots who have been lobbying for the legislation wanted to ensure that ground crew such as enlisted personnel who worked to launch jets aircraft carriers were included. Because, they were exposed to many of the same radar emissions or fuels. The bill requires a database to be completed within a year. So I guess they're assuming that. The radar emissions and fuel and the jets have something to do with this. With these cancers. Anyway. So that's good. That they're doing this and I guess that. I will be contacted at some point. To probably. Yeah to fill out some kind of survey regarding my health,

4.8 Million Jobs Added in June, but Clouds Grow Over Economy

"Are much better than expected Report out today shows US economy, adding 4.8 million jobs in June Labor Department now reporting that unemployment also fell to 11% last month, but bankrate dot com economist Mark Hemorrhage says that number may actually be slightly higher. He joined debris. Debbie Feinstein live on Skype to explain 1/3 of the jobs that were lost among the 20 Two million of since been restored, which obviously means 2/3 yet to be. So we sell the high rate of unemployment in our country, and I had an asterisk to the 11.1% unemployment rate you mentioned. Their Labor department cautions us that because of problems with measurement that are ultimately fairly complicated, the actual unemployment rate is about another percentage point above that. So let's talk about 12%. That's 2% above the highest level we saw during the great recession over a decade ago and within certain sectors, for example, in leisure and hospitality, which is the category including bars and restaurants, the unemployment rate they're 29%. That's above the level of the great Depression, So we still have a lot of heartache to work through here. Also, we've gotta recognize that new shutdowns air now underway again because of the pandemic. This data and today's report is from the 1st 2 weeks in June before this latest round of shutdowns. What does this mean? Looking ahead to the next report? That means there's more risk associated with a weakness, or at least a stall in the data will get for the month of July. As you indicate this dad has always collected around the 12th of the month, so it is somewhat stale. At this point. That's why, in some cases It's been more optimal to look at new claims for unemployment benefits of there. We're down for a 13 straight week, but elevated above a 1,000,000 for 15 straight weeks. Do businesses feel okay about rehiring again now? Or is there still too much uncertainty? For example? What happens now? If people stopped traveling again? The answer? That is really about the answer having to do with where you're located. What sector you're operating in on what the business outlook is operating a restaurant which would be doing business under challenging, Sir. Come stances on the best of times because of the high failure rate thinking about being restricted at 30 or 50% of your traditional level of business. You're thinking you're walking on egg shells. But if you're in a service industry, perhaps technology I t working with the cloud collaborative tools of security, the many tools that have kept many of us in operation during the lock down, But do you think the outlook is pretty good, by the way? Mortgage interest rates or a record low levels that's helping the housing mark. And that's one reason why the financial services Trade really still has a remarkably low unemployment rate right now, and that is bankrate dot com economist Mark Hamrick.

FBI, SEC looking at lawmakers' stock trades after coronavirus briefings: report

"The justice department is reviewing those stock trades made by some lawmakers after corona virus briefings Dianne Feinstein Burr and I think Kelly Loeffler also are being being investigated where are we with that what do we know well according to published reports that the FBI has started asking questions about senator Burr's trades which were made after a confidential briefing although not a classified briefing and certain members of the product about the virus itself and of course there was a senator Feinstein's husband he gauged in expensive trade she personally did not that that that's almost irrelevant in the story my guess is nothing will happen for many of this yeah even though Congress passed the law back in two thousand twelve making it specifically in legal for members of the Senate and house decreed on confidential material non public information it doesn't appear that these meetings are going to meet that standard it could be classified briefing need being that would indicate that aside the politics of this are pretty ugly it's pretty obvious that bird did in fact trade on not non public information and I think it was material I think Burke who is not running for re election widely in North Carolina who has been analysis of the president and has allowed mark wanted to run the Senate intelligence committee hi Burgess figure he's on his way out so why not make a few Bucks pretty disgusting behavior but I don't think the justice department will ever pull the trigger although if they were going to they certainly picked on the public interest yeah now and and can you spell that this sort of colors in the lines over what we've seen the last few years you mention with the Senate intelligence committee thank you know Republicans are in charge is there but we just haven't seen a lot of traction from that Intel committee to get at the root of the problems in our government and now you're looking at a guy who just betrayed his oath of office in order to enrich himself well I think the present really a classic example of the never Trumper with power in the Republican contact he's he's practically a democratic civil servant of the weighted resistance as function is trump took the presidency of Birkhead heated front from the beginning he has obstructed getting to the truth about the Russian hoax although there was getting in plain sight you never heard him say anything supporters about the president during that entire three year pokes Burke is not well white in the White House as you might imagine he he is well liked by his fellow senators interestingly enough but that's the nature of the club pretty pathetic guy and he will not be missed by those of us who care deeply about the country and then exit aria which was singing this tune on stock trading is pretty disgusting and it's shameful actually but I don't think anything criminally legal will come from it yeah sad Joe the justice department is now saying that anyone caught intentionally spreading the corona virus could face terrorism charges is this something that they can make stick are they probably could I think there's enough public anger at anybody taking advantage of this situation you see new cases where somebody spits on lotus road beds doubles in a in a a grocery store or supermarket ending you know that often produce has to be destroyed and then the person is arrested this could be considered a terrorist act under not only federal law but under most states now have anti terrorism statute because it's designed to do harm in a political situation etcetera etcetera if it yeah I doubt if there will be any of the cases brought because again talk about limited resources and what we have to do but if anyone knowingly we're spread the virus Bob well somebody worked in a hospital it took advantage of access the bios or anything like that I have no doubt that would be a prosecution individuals doing something like this you know we'll see how I've got the prosecutors are I would do it if I regret it but you know I'm not there

And the headline is and we've talked about Feinstein and her husband, Richard bloom over the years and their relationships with the Chinese government, and how they've made a hell of a lot of money and how I believe that's affect her policies in some ways. But the question is shouldn't there be a special counsel investigating her? Shouldn't the news media be focused on her? There's winegarden writes in a very long piece, and I can't read all of it.

"Guns on both those issues at various times in his in the last couple of years, he said things that gave hope, but then quickly pulled back on guns, for example, after parkland sound like he might be a person reasonable toughening of of gun control, he quickly retreated retreated reach not tweeted, retrieve tweeted original tweet, so more. But certainly on immigration. You know, there was some he talked about the dreamers. But then in dish it on the wall or the stupid wall is daily own call. Yes. All right. So it looks like based on what you have said six more years of Dianne Feinstein in the Senate. Do you think there's any way that we know obviously, it's we don't know what the turnout's gonna be here. But you know, polls are saying that she is a strong lead going into this all the money in the world. He does not what do you? What do you think? I over. I do think it's game over I think the opening for for daily own really came with the cavenaugh hearings with not only the left was upset at at Feinstein. The right was upset at Feinstein. He could have jumped on that issue, although he had his own pill. These to try to Gordon, I think if you jumped on that more aggressively that might have, you know, maybe some Republicans maybe not paying attention to his platform, which is well, actually, well well to the left of Feinstein might have rebuild, but. I just don't see it. I don't see the lane victory for him at this point. Right. And one thing speaking of Republicans, you know, you saw a one of our favorite San Francisco Republicans, actually, Oakland, Republican, Sean Walsh, former advisor to former Governor Pete Wilson in the audience, and you know, what what what do Republicans do in this race? The polls say that fifty two percent of Republicans and twenty six percent of independence, many of them. Obviously probably former Republicans don't plan to even vote in this race. What did they see anything here today? Well, it the the one thing they might have seen maybe being a little afraid of Kevin daily own. Now seeing that he is fairly far left a of Dianne Feinstein. I can't imagine that he's going to get many Republican votes. She will get some because first of all lot of Republicans have voted for in the past. And one thing we know in politics is. The best predictor of how you're going to vote in the next elections. How you voted in the last election? What you vote for somebody? You're more prone to vote for them in the future. But I think Republicans are shutout and frustrated in this US Senate it's going to be interesting with what we have this year. If there's going to be a renewed push to maybe get rid of the top two because I know neither party particularly likes hate. It hate they hate the both parties hit the top two. I like the top too. I do too I do too. And and when the great independent hope in this raises insurance Commissioner candidate, Steve poisoner. He's running independent and made it into the November election, the has cracked up what Twenty-three newspaper endorsements it sits he's been very, you know, I talked to that camp on the other day. I actually talked to Laras campaign the other day, and I was like how do your how your polls look your internal polls. Like, you know, we haven't decided whether to release those yet it was like. I think that's your answer. All right. John. Thank you so much, and wait we'd have any more debates. Do we when are we gonna meet we'll meet again on election night? Correct. Well, actually, Joe, maybe the question is winner. We can have a real debate. Yeah. We we have the we haven't had. Ten AM radio of only governor debate.

I thought your dance story really hit that point Joe. And I think that's exactly what we saw today. Whether it was because he was thinking future or he basically has given up or had bad strategy had bat opposition research. I mean, he loves so much on the table. Kevin daily on so many missed opportunities. Illinois subject turned to to water an in, and I agree with you. I thought the format was somewhat limiting really by design. I mean, Mark ball. Sorry and public policy. It's to cal- California. They're very substantive, very serious. Sorry, clearly wanted to cover a lot of territory and not haven't get into a tit-for-tat, which he succeeded in doing but still even if the format it's limiting limiting you. If you are a strong candidate, and you really want to win the election, and you've got the goods on your opponent. Then you you bust through that format. You know, you say well, hang on. Let me get one more point. I can't imagine that all the sorry would have stopped him at that. And that good example was water when the issue turn to water Feinstein gave her spiel Kevin Dalyell gave his spiel mostly focusing on the twin tunnels there's some vulnerabilities for Feinstein on water. You know, where she has sided with big agriculture interests. And and really drawn the ire of environmentalist that would have been a great opportunity for daily owned to to jump in. And and just having. Britain some at Tores about that over the years. I know it's also an issue that Feinstein very touchy about guess, she's very touching. And she's also an especially when he portrays himself as the hero to environmentalism here in California. And he has led some done some great legislation on that, you know, in terms of the you know that characterize the store in the chronicle. They'll come out sooner probably already is. You know, sort of the activists versus the 'institutionalised and Feinstein's quote here kind of kind of summarize her position, she said sure, you can protest, and we do, but they the Republicans move the majority regardless partisanship has become so calcified. She said that it's quote, it's like hitting your head against the concrete wall. You can March you can filibuster. You can talk all night. It doesn't change. Anything changes things are elections. And that's kind of that's a very realistic view of the role of Democrats in Washington where they are them inority from someone who's been there. Twenty five years in even in a divided government. It's difficult and even in all democratic government. Remember Dianne Feinstein talked about immigration reform. There was a time when the Democrats had the presidency in both houses, and they did not get immigration reform done. These are difficult issues in especially in the US Senate, which is very process oriented. By nature by by design by the founders, it's very much supposed to be delivered. If you know the place where you slow down things against the populist sentiment of the the day. And I think Feinstein really is ingrained with that. I think daily own you was trying to make the pitch that I can overcome this. But we shouldn't say it today. There were no direct digs at defies age. But there were certainly some. Basically thinly disguised ones time for a new generation. We things along those lines. What did you think about that? That was up to vague for people or was that did he play right, or what did you think? Why think daily own had no choice, but to play that very cautiously. I would say this about the age issue though, Joe is I talked to Democrats even Democrats are inclined to support Dianne Feinstein. It gives them pas she's eighty five years old at the end of her term..

"Feinstein. Judge caviar. It's my understanding that you have denied the allegations by Dr Ford, miss Ramirez, and miss sweat, Nick. Is that correct? Yes. All three of these women have asked the FBI to investigate their claims. I listened carefully to what you said. Your concern is evident and clear, and if you're very confident of your position, and you appear to be why aren't you also asking the FBI to investigate these claims Senator I'll do whatever the committee wants I wanted a hearing the day after the allegation came up. I wanted to be here that day instead ten days past were all this nonsense is coming out. Down in gangs on boats in Rhode Island, Colorado. Cited all over the place. And these things are printed in Ron breathlessly by cable news. I wanted to hearing the next day. My family's been destroyed by this Senator destroyed and. Once you know, whatever the committee decides. I'm all in Geneva immediately. I'm all in immediately and the terrible and hard part of this is when we get an allegation, we're not in a position to prove it or disprove it. Therefore, we have to depend on some outside thority for it. And it would just seem to me. Then when these allegations came forward that you would want the FBI to investigate those claims and clear it up once and for all. Senator the committee investigates south for meat is to say how to do it. But just so, you know, the FBI doesn't reach a conclusion they would give you a couple three zero two's that just tell you what we said. So I'm here. I wanted to be here. I wanted to be here. The next day. It's an it's an outrage that I was not allowed to come. And immediately defend my name and say, I didn't do this and give you all this evidence. I'm not even I'm not even in DC on the weekends in the summer of one thousand nine hundred eighty two. This have not a weekday would I'm not at a player high school for summer league game on not Tobin's house working out. Another movie was Suzanne. I wanted to be here right away. Well, the difficult thing is that it. The these. These hearings are set and. Set by the majority. But I'm talking about getting the evidence and having the evidence looked out and I don't understand. You know, we hear from the witnesses. But the FBI is an interviewing them at isn't giving us any facts. So all we have you're interviewing me, you're interviewing me, you're you're doing it Senator. I'm sorry to interrupt, but you're doing it. That's the there's no conclusions reached in what you're saying. If if I understand it is that the allegations by Dr Ford, this Ramirez and misfit dick, sweat, Nick. Are you that that is emphatically what I'm saying emphatically? The sweat. Nick thing is a joke. That is a farce. Would you like to say more about it? Now..

Yes. Ma'am. Okay. I can't hear and everybody's saying that the latest they, you know, they'd have not tell me society, and they stall and they're not stalling. This is nothing wrong. If they hadn't done anything wrong. Let them investigate let them get the witness. What is the big one is the rush? Well, miss Dorothy. I think the problem is been the way in which it was revealed. The way that the Senate took it on because they don't believe it because they're all no, no, ma'am. What happened was is that Dr. Dr Ford revealed to a member of congress back in July. Okay. And then that member of congress brought it to Senator Dianne Feinstein. Exactly. And it she did not want it to be revealed mid Dr Ford, but any interim of not wanting it to be revealed. She took a polygraph and engaged a lawyer. Okay. Okay. Then it was alternately revealed not because of Dr Ford releasing Dianne Feinstein Stein from her commitment to not reveal it. Diane Feinstein had revealed it to one of our staffers who told another staffer who told another staffer and it begun to get out. So then they had a meeting of the Democrats and the Democrats decided to reveal Dr Ford's accusation unbeknownst, the doctor Ford and leaked it to the media. And that's how it got out. That's why that's why they're saying that this is political in that. And just let me finish. And not the hypocrisy is with the Democrats are saying they are so concerned about the victim. Then why did you violate the confidence of the victim? And getting it out. The reason is that they thought they had something juicy that they could use to try and delay this hearing plane and Jeff. Political. It's political. Either way you go. Bye. Oh. There don't want it because they don't want. Inviting her to get out and voted. I want to. Thank you bet. You don't. But that's okay. They've been wanting to have her come before the hearing for a while they've been negotiating for almost two weeks now. So I don't know that they're afraid of.

"I mean, thank goodness for them, so so this is problematic. But then I'm too it's shows, Feinstein isn't up to fighting the Republicans on the level that they would fight us. I mean, we can't have leaders in the hope is right now who refuse to play hardball. This is we're dealing with the whole ballgame for at least a generation. I mean, you and I are going to have nothing but white hair. By the time we undo some of the damage cavenaugh can do, and she's sitting down information like this, even if you've feel morally that this is just something that can't. This is too old, etc. Etc. We are in this thing for the whole ballgame. You can't sit on information like this. So politically and morally. I think Dianne Feinstein is very problematic in this story. Okay. So let's just, I mean, just so that we're, we're being. Super accurate. The apparently. The woman after interactions with the offices of his shoe and Feinstein decided not to speak about the matter publicly. Okay. Which means that. Either they said, look, this could get really ugly for you. You might as well not do it, or he's gonna go, he's going to sail through or whatever. Now, look, I also think there's a responsibility if you are these members to protect this woman on some level, but but let me just read what we know from this reporting Feinstein declined requests from other Democrats on the judiciary committee to share the woman's letter and other relevant communications, which is interesting too. I don't know what those other relevant communications. Our source familiar with. The committee's activities said that Feinstein staff initially conveyed to the democratic members that the incident was too distant in the past merit public discussion, and that Feinstein had quote taken care of it. That's scudding. It is. And then and then Feinstein only after reporting. And I think largely came from Ryan Grim at the intercept. The Feinstein agreed to brief. The other Democrats on the committee would no staff present on Thursday, Feinstein announced that she'd referred the matter to the FBI. I've received information from an individual concerning the nomination Abrek Cavanaugh the supreme court that individuals strongly requested confidentiality client to come forward to press the matter further. I have honored that decision I have. I have however referred the matter to federal investigative authorities. Now, here's where her story starts falling apart. We're Feinstein story of, I'm just protecting this woman starts falling apart because if protecting that woman still can involve telling the FBI on Thursday, then she should have done it weeks ago. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah, sources familiar with Feinstein's decision suggests that she was acting out of concern for the privacy of the accuser, knowing that the woman would be subject to fierce partisan tax if she came forward. Okay, fair enough. Take that face Val. View, you know. Give her the benefit of doubt. However, then it writes Feinstein also acted out of a sense that Democrats would be better off focusing on legal rather than personal issues in their questioning of cavenaugh. That is effing insane. That's that's crossing competence from a political perspective. She is. She's, I mean, I don't wanna be ages, but isn't she's? She's like one of the older members of the Senate thing. She's like in her late eighties or mid eighties, and and she and only mentioned that not to be, but she's harkening back to more civilized time a more civilized time if there ever was such a thing I think there was, but if there was ever set to more civilized time, then this is some, this is what you would do. This is how you behave. We're not dealing with civilized times right now. We're not dealing with reasonable people and for her to make this move. Just politically, let's set aside her her concerns for her constituent. Okay. Maybe we can give her that, but just politically face by this. This is so incompetent that it really is something that she needs to be. Accountable for and you know, you could argue with civilized times, it was also times, whereas, like, you know. Boys will always will be that type of thing. And you know, she's got a real problem here. She has got a real Feinstein's got a real problem here there. I mean, cabinet has got a problem and Feinstein both have a problem..
