"In her entire life. We don't go anywhere that's inside with her, you know, that's not like a friend's house that we fully vetted or her day care. Now children from 6 months to 5 years old are eligible for the vaccine, many are breathing a sigh of relief. But that doesn't mean everyone is. The most recent Kaiser family foundation poll found that only about one in 5 parents will vaccinate their toddlers right away. Plenty of people still have questions about the vaccines, and here to answer some of them are NPR health correspondent rob Stein, and doctor Nia herd garris. She's a pediatrician and researcher at feinberg school of medicine at northwestern university, and at the Ann and Robert H lurie children's hospital of Chicago. Welcome to both of you. Nice to be here. Thanks for having us. Thanks for being here. Rob, I want to start with an update on the whole campaign to vaccinate this very last group to become eligible. We're talking about kids younger than age 5. How are things going so far in that campaign? Well, you know, it's the federal government hasn't released any hard numbers yet about how many kids have gotten the shots, but the early indications so far is that the demand for the shots for these littlest ones is living up to expectations which frankly were very low. That's because most parents of kids ages 5 to 11 still haven't gotten their kids vaccinated, even though they've been eligible for months, and the parents of the younger kids are even more reluctant. The pace at which states started off ordering the vaccine was pretty lackluster, so the Biden administration has been warning that it will take a while to convince most parents to get their shots for their little kids. What about this whole choice between Pfizer versus Moderna for a really young kids? Is there a preference that you have? This question keeps coming up for a lot of my patients. We really think that the Pfizer and Moderna have equal efficacy, meaning that they are both are effective and they're both going to keep your kids safe against COVID. At least prevent them from being in the hospital and getting really, really sick. So bottom line, just go get whatever you can. They're both safe and effective. I'm going to start now with Amanda gray from Bangor Maine. She writes, quote, I feel like I have been waiting two plus years for this news that I could finally get my daughter vaccinated. And here I am thinking maybe it's best to wait. The current COVID strain is not as fatal, especially in young children. Do I wait to vaccinate till right before back to school? Should I wait till a more aggressive and lethal strain circulates? Perhaps this winter? Okay, doctor heard Gareth, what do you say to Amanda gray? I say Amanda, I hear you. I get it. You're not alone. But I want to let you know, you know, omicron may appear less virulent because there's a fair number of people that have already been exposed to COVID. So it actually offers some protection to the rest of us. And so that's why it seems less virulent. But for a child that has not been exposed or vaccinated to COVID, they still face the same risk of mortality and they still face the same risk of hospitalization. So I would say Amanda, don't wait, go get your kid vaccinated. We've been waiting for two years. Go out do it. Next up is Felix Ortiz from canton, Ohio. Why is it taking long for some of the local health departments as well as sugar's hospitals to be able to get the right doses? I have contacted both of mine here and I've been told that it might be until early July before they're able to get the right doses. Okay, so for the parents who want to just go and get their kids vaccinated, they can. Rob, can you answer this question from Felix Ortiz? One reason I've been hearing is the way they've been packaged, believe it or not, they come in ten dose files that have to be used within 12 hours, and many doctors are apparently hesitant to order the vaccines because they don't have ten kids of vaccinated every time. They puncture a vial and they're afraid they'll end up wasting a lot of vaccine. I talked about this with Claire henin. She's the executive director of the association of immunization managers. It's okay to waste vaccine. They need to worry more about wasting an opportunity to vaccinate than to worry about wasting the 9 remaining doses in the vial. You know, that's because there's plenty of vaccine available, and even though COVID-19 doesn't necessarily pose as great aristocrats as it does to older people, it still can be quite dangerous. Okay, let's now move on to a question from Alison cloyd from Arvada Colorado. She writes, quote, with the efficacy of Moderna being so much lower for the under 5 crowd and Pfizer having a very small sample size, is it worth having my three year old vaccinated if she tested positive for COVID in February? How does that calculus change knowing we have a ten week old baby who can't be vaccinated yet, but is breastfed parentheses? I'm triple vax and was still in utero when I had COVID at that same time. Doctor Hogarth, there's a lot to unpack here, but maybe you can give some advice to Allison here. You know, I think it's a good question, especially since, you know, her child, Allison's child was actually positive for COVID-19 in Barry. And even though he had it in February, her immunity is starting Wayne. So we say about 30 to 90 days after getting COVID-19 infection is an ideal time. It's still safe. You can immediately get your COVID-19 vaccination right after. But if you want to wait some time, you know, 30 to 90 days is still the safe window. She's well beyond that now. So I think it's time. Especially because she has an vulnerable ten week old at home. All right, and our final listener question is from badness heights, Minnesota. Hello, my name is hope savaria and my question is, what sorts of side effects should we expect for the 24 hours or so? After the vaccine, will it be similar to those seen in adults, mild flu like symptoms, and is there anything we can do to help mitigate these effects such as administering children's Tylenol or ibuprofen before the vaccine? I

"Much of it is made in sweatshops using child labor, according to the International Labor Organization, 170 million Children are put to child labor. And many are part of the garment industry. Here's New York Assemblyman Felix Ortiz. So, so it's very important that we as leaders, we really continue to, uh bring, uh, awareness about this issue that is still visible. People don't people. People think that, uh, try a label disappear. Ready in 2021 or 2020, and then many years said this to you. So I'm Mabel that's still happening in in a bigger Great because we are not paying attention anymore than whether we just do you know, we are being deviated with so many other issues impacting czar, local communities. Ortiz says the child labor is not just a social justice issue, but an environmental one as well, especially when clothes are made with chemicals. That's why he's introduced assembly Bill 15 49. It would require labels to be on fabrics that contain micro plastics like polyester. The micro plastics disintegrate when they're washed and end up in water systems. Heidi Harmon, The mayor of San Luis Obispo, says that buying clothes secondhand, such as a thrift stores is much healthier for the environment. Harmon says that keeping the water systems clean of micro plastics is very important for people and her area. Our beaches are such an essential part of our quality of life here. It's a nest central aspect of our local economy in terms of a driver for tourism. Also Morro Bay City right next door is known for its fisheries and so keeping the oceans as clean as possible is essential on so many levels here, and that Ludes, of course, keeping the micro plastics that Polly Esther's and other fabrics do create when their wash and get into our water system. Study conducted by the University of California, Santa Barbara found that in 2019 13.3 quadrillion Fibers were released into California's environment. These micro plastics are in the water, food, air and oceans. It's estimated that humans ingest over 5800 particles of synthetic debris each year. Mariam Wallstrom, a junior at Stanford University and fellow with the O. P A says that while clothing containing micro plastics as damaging the environment It's profitable for the companies that sell it. I remember it one point buying two of the exact same T shirt because I knew I really like the T shirt, but I knew that it would deteriorate within a few months on, so I wanted to have a backup, and this is the exact kind of business model that fast fashion works on is that they know they build their clothing on a very cheap synthetics and oil based polyester and they know that it's going to fall. Apart within a few months, But this is a great business model because it gets the customer back in the door again and again, the nonprofit organization of elected leaders Is encouraging Mork conscious consumption during the holiday season. It's also encouraging Congress to enact legislation like stricter sanctions of sweatshop imports. He o p a points to Sweden as an example. In 2019, Sweden passed a law issuing a chemical tax on clothing and footwear containing hazardous chemicals. Better carcinogenic mutagenic or toxic for reproduction. It goes into effect next year for K P F a news I'm Daniel Witty. More than a year before Anthony Warner detonated a bomb and downtown Nashville on Christmas Day, officers visited his home after his girlfriend told police he was building bombs in an R V trailer at his residence. But they did not make contact with him or see inside. The RV officers saw the RV in the backyard, but the yard was fenced off, and they couldn't see inside it. A day after officers visited Warner's home, the police report and identifying information about him were sent to the FBI to check their databases and determine whether Warner had prior military connections. The FBI said they found no records on Warner. Law enforcement officials did not publicly release the police report after the bomb blast. It was revealed only after news outlets submitted public records request. Some of the people investigators have interviewed say that Warner believed that shape shifting reptiles take on a human form to take over society and that he discussed taking trips to hunt aliens. Some New Mexico A native American man who regularly visits the Petro Cliff National Monument near Albuquerque, New Mexico, says a park ranger assaulted him after a verbal dispute over the weekend.

"Of absentee ballots are still being counted. Joining us now are two of our reporters covering politics for Gothamist and W N. Y. C. Bridget Bergen and Via Skype. David Cruz. Good morning. Good morning, Bridget. We've reported on some of the big congressional races already, but now we have results from some state Senate and State Assembly races. And it looks like insurgents. One big. Tell us about them. How absolutely David In Queens. We saw incumbents like assembly members Michael Dunn, Decker, Michael Miller and Arabella seem Otis all lose two challengers. Including Jessica Gonzales Rojas, Jennifer Raj Kumar in Zoran Mom, Donnie, respectively, now Mom, Donnie was endorsed by the Democratic Socialist of America, or de Esa. They turned out to be a really powerhouse in this primary in six out of the eight races where they endorsed, Of course, if you're including Bernie Sanders, their candidates won In Brooklyn. Their candidates were also really successful. Senator Julia Salazar was reelected. Jabari Re sport appears to have won an open seat in Central Brooklyn and Marcella Maquinas be long serving assembly member, Felix Ortiz. And Ferris to front forest knocked out Walter Mosley. Okay, let's back up to something you just said the Democratic Socialists of America, an organization barely heard of two years ago, one in six out of the eight races where they endorsed David. What are the lessons? Well, for one thing, Don't underestimate the they cracked the code for campaigning in a pandemic. Just imagine what they could do in normal circumstances. Now the question will be. How will the new newly elected Democratic Socialist legislators use this new institutional power? To a fact meaningful change for constituents. Some of their key goals are taxing the rich universal health care and supporting reparations for black and need of Americans. Which are not easy lifts in Albany and Washington, DC Brigid. You spoke with one of the so called insurgents. Emily Gallagher. She's not say, but she is progressive. She beat 46 year incumbent assembly member Joseph Lentil and North Brooklyn. What can you tell us about how she campaigned? So Lindell has been in office longer than Gallagher has been alive. She is a community organizer. I know it's amazing. She's a community organizer in the district for more than a decade, and she told me her team really leaned into a different kind of campaign because of the pandemic. We really tried to shift everything, Tio, um, things people would be interested in while they were at home. So you know, we helped connect people to mutual aid networks. We did mostly phone calls, so really, instead of pounding the pavement and knocking on doors and doing things that candidates normally do during primary, she, like many others hit the phones and their digital campaigns really hard. And try to meet voters where they were, and it turned out. It worked really well okay to other surprises that we have reported on before Jamal Bowman beat incumbent Eliot Engel. In the 16th Congressional district in the northern Broncs in southern West Chester and Mondale. Jones has one in the 17th district that's in the Westchester and Rockland County's both or black. Both are backed by the David. What about the 15th district in the South Bronx? Is there. Finally some clarity there? Yes. So Bronx Councilmember Ritchie Torres is the self proclaimed winner on the basis that he has such a wide margin over the rest of the candidates. About 11 and all that it's Quote, mathematically insurmountable for any other candidate to defeat him. Torrez appears to have eaten all of another candidate's, which included council member Reuben D. A senior who even Torres several times called the front runner. I spoke with towards yesterday and he said that he was happy that he was the inspiration to force Diaz to retire, and he also took a dig at Assembly member Michael Blake. The apparent second place finisher, calling him a sore loser. So it looks as though Tor is likely going to be heading to Washington. Bridget, You have been keeping an eye on New York's 12th Congressional district, which has not yet been called. That's on the Upper East Side and across the East River parts of Queens and Brooklyn. Incumbent Carolyn Maloney is trying to fend off a challenge from Suraj Patel. How much longer will we be waiting here? We're going to be waiting a little bit longer. David. The fatal campaign says this could last the counting good, less at least until the end of next week. Keep in mind. Maloney held this reserves slim 640 vote lead as of Primary Day and that was out of about 40,000 votes cast in person, but More than 65,000 absentee ballots were received in this race, the bulk of which are from Manhattan, which also happens to be the burrow where the counting is going the slowest So we'll be watching that Also, Just last week, Patel sued Governor Cuomo and the state Board of Elections, actually, along with Emily Gallagher and several voters. Over how they invalidate ballots for postmark problems. It's an issue. We were the first to cover here. W. N. Y. C in gothamist all of the candidates in the 12th Congressional district, including Maloney in the two others on the ballots, say They want all the votes counted, regardless of postmark problems. There's also legislation being considered in Albany that would address the postmark issue. So we're going to be watching what happens on all these fronts. So it looks like there are still some races up in the air. But At the same time, we have a good sense of the shape of the result. Bridget, what can you say about how the primary seems to have shaken out? So I'm really I'm most struck by this moment of generational change that is sweeping through our congressional delegation. Most certainly you know, you look at Mondo Jones, Schimmel Billman, Richie tourists. We're lowering the average age of our delegation easily by decades. But we're also sending representatives that look more like the district's that they serve and are closer to people on the ground. Thes air good things for representative government. Similarly, in the state Legislature, long serving incumbents are facing a wake up call, in part because They were disconnected from this new generation of politically active and frankly impatient new candidates her not willing to wait for them to retire to bring change to their district. And finally, David. We should remind listeners these air all Democratic primaries that we're talking about. The final election is in November. Is there. Ah, chance of Republican will defeat one of these nominees. For the races we mentioned, I would say it's highly unlikely. But in Staten Island and Brooklyn Republican Assembly member Nicole Mallya Takis, who won her primary looks to flip the seed. Currently held by Democratic representative Max Rose looks to flip it back to read. She has name recognition as she was the Republican nominee for mayor. Ah, a couple years ago, and she has a healthy campaign war chest so she could give Rose a run for his money. Okay, that is Gothamist News Editor David Cruz and W Y sees Brigitte Bergen. Thank you so much. Did you? This is morning edition from NPR news..

In other words, members of the real estate industry members of the real estate investment industry. Should absolutely contact their local legislators and say, Hey, enough, we really can't take much more. Is that an accurate statement? Let me tell you something that's the best thing to do is to advocate on behalf of your issue. And if they can call a local elected official and say no more. It's not. You know why we're looking at Ah, New Bill. Why we're looking at a Julia Salazar bill, you know? The other. The other law that just passed a year ago that the ink is dry on the legislation, and you're looking to do more and you know, and they should definitely say I'm a constituent. I'm a voter.

He is out close to making state law makers pass a bill that would make it a hate crime. When nine one one callers make a false accusation based on race. Gender or religion, and it's deemed the Amy Cooper Bill. This is you know that's the one that they in the Central Park Karen She's the one that called. The cops on a black man because he asked her to put her dog on a leash. Right the rue stay you. Dog must be leased. Again. He told her that she needs to put her dog on a leash.

In Central, Park went viral. The bottom line is we should be Ortiz said. The bottom line is using better judgment. Racism gets created and I think that by making.

Section of the civil rights law allowing for transparency on Trier Disciplinary Records of law enforcement officers. So what? Why is this laws everywhere? So these law enforcement officers get stuff sanctioned against them, and then other people can't see it. Because most of these laws, the other one that they were saying. People can't see like this wire. Do have laws that if somebody's been disciplined for doing something wrong, why isn't everybody made aware it should be public? Well that is? Dan which I think is great and to be filing a false report, which that is a crime fighting a false report. The. They're not prosecuting. These individuals is. Question.

"W. NYC and in the context of everything that we've been talking about today the local angle is this on Monday most of you have heard this a white woman made a racially charged nine one one call on a black male bird watcher in Central Park after he asked her to leave her dog in what is now become an infamous viral video taken by the bird watcher the woman says I'm going to tell them there's an African American man threatening my life now a new bill proposed in the New York State Senate would add the false reporting of a crime to a list of charges eligible for hate crime status joining me now is Brian Benjamin co sponsor of that bill New York state senator who represents Harlem East Harlem Upper West Side Washington Heights Hamilton heights Morningside heights that's the thirtieth state Senate district for those of you keeping score and we'll also talk to him about what the state legislature did and didn't do in their two day covert nineteen special session this week welcome back to WNYC center Benjamin thank you for coming on with us today thank you Brian is a pleasure to be here with you and let's start on the bill per se it would make it a hate crime to call the police on black person when no crime had occurred how would that be determined and what do you think the punishment should be so the way it would be determined it will be in the court of law and you know that's important because I think one of the one of the key issues that we're dealing with here Brian you're not going to want to take a step back five minutes between a lot of comments about the bell and I want to thank assemblymember Felix Ortiz for introducing a bill in the assembly you know Christian Cooper represent for some people the the essence of our problem right so he's someone who played by the rules worked hard went to the right schools if you look at the video his restraint is unparalleled neighbor did all the right things how to video on NC Phil weaponized his race against them by calling nine one one and and and using that very stark language and so I think it's important you know with the earlier accommodation it's important understand that it is really demoralizing to know that someone who's a bird watcher who playing by the rules doing all the right thing is still would be subject to something like that so I just want to kind of I just wanted to kind of cripple I thank you because differ much emotion behind that you know sometimes people say well you know folks out there the making bad decisions and that's why we deal with racism racist activity that's why the cops are rafting etcetera what do you have a situation like this it called that all of the questions anyway and remind people of this concern that whenever a black mother sends her son out she is petrified my mom is always quality bride I'll be safe be fake almost all model where we understand that there are two all I'm I'm you know I'm a good mom I dress while I do that calm down calm down and he was always concerned why because of situations like that so I just want to kind of put that contact out there now the only to the belt right now in the state of New York if you falsely report an incident it is worth it you can you can be charged for that right so either first second or third degree I don't my crying to a lively report an incident it's already a crime and quite frankly the police could have arrested her because in that it you know they're you know given the fact that I look at that as lawyers have told me she could have been the life of the class work out the best in the right now what this bill does it fail it's one thing to falsely report an incident it's another thing to have race ethnicity gender as the reason for the false reporting all right use of part of the full supporting it so therefore we need this to be a specified offence that'll that can have a higher penalty which is typically a penalty higher than bill whatever the one that is charge in the statue of the of the of the existing law how would you put this incident for your self in the context of the grief and anger that so many people are experiencing in this country and when we started the last segment I was framing it very broadly grief and anger over the one hundred thousand American deaths from covert nineteen this week amid the failures that have contributed to that and grief and anger over George Floyd Brianna Taylor this incident in Central Park Ahmad are very well going on at the same time where would you like to start with your own reaction if Broadcom why are they not Brian I mean where do I start let me let me say you know this talk about George Floyd because you know this is the problem here the man who from what I understood was pulled over for pop please don't bother I know a nonviolent offense is not the one who had a weapons of their lives there was no threat that he was posing to the officers from any any evidence anyone has shown yet somehow he gets you know on the on his neck for eight minutes how does he get a neolithic for eight minutes and then you see videos across the country of white being aggressive swinging a machete that cops and somehow that gets resolved extremely peacefully protests we did re opening protests and just in general I mean not you know we you know when you were using on Twitter and and and told me that is an amazing thing what you see you see hostility that's happening across all races towards police at different times yes you only see black and brown people being sort of handled aggressively but then more moreover you see scenarios where white could be actually having a weapon that they're swinging about officer but somehow that gets handled peacefully it's it's it's just hard to reconcile this and and you know as someone who quite frankly is that my life play by the rules doing all the right things try to be a good citizen it is enormously frustrating to see over and over and over and over and over again how how things get resolved ended quite frankly you know it's hard to imagine a scenario where the DA in and had a big county can contend can can legitimately say that the police should not be charged I mean for sure the the the police officer who had who had a knee on the deck of of Floyd should without question be talking right I don't even know how you even consider that to not be possible so that has to get resolved but you know you know if your heart if you constantly are just hoping for the best hoping for the best hoping for a better America but quite frankly you know I have a young daughter everyone raising children you're scared if I had a look at a young son I'll be patch I just be terrified I don't even know what I would do so we come upon myself and all of us who are legislators the people of the boys who have who have authority to do everything we can to to force a better system in our country and unless we do that and unless people feel is doing that and being very and making this a priority we're going to continue to have some of the some of the issues that we're seeing and and many a lot this Minneapolis but also more importantly this continued micro aggressions tensions will will continue and governed so much of how we interact with each other because we're not dealing with the core issues and we're not creating a level playing field in the system a fan if everybody got it's got to be at the core of this right how do we create fairness for everybody particularly in our criminal justice system and until we do that well we're going to we're going to continue to have problems I'm I'm I'm I'm focused on doing that and quite frankly I am not the one who looks to say I I like to have more competitive I'm not someone who I actually we over incarcerate add needed for public safety but what I also believe that if someone is going to use race as a as a weapon when it comes to provoked profound falsely reporting incidents to the police that for certain it needs to be added penalty on that because data taken off in the direction that I've I've said before to me feels like terrorist terrorist behavior so for example if you say that I am and work I think that's racist if you will call the police with the rate of the weaponizing factor to calm and and and and take and take my liberty that could be opposed to terrorism and so I think it's important to be clear about that fact because I think the people that all she was just you know she made she would race which made a couple comments that's when you call the police and you say to the police that this man is after America manta threatening my life that is not just racism that can meet if terrorism and we end the call what that is and we have to make sure that people know that if absolutely not okay and it puts the person's life in danger because we know what a police response can be we know from these other incidents were talking about what bias police response can be even you know unintentional bias N. not so when you say somebody is threatening your life police might come with guns drawn and absolutely then they met my name was all the validation go ahead what a one more thing because one of the things that I had people say to me oh well you know these trump supporters let's be very clear from her personal donation records this woman supported Barack Obama she supported people to judge she's a Democrat so if you live in but had sold one of the things that we have got to be clear about this is not a southern issue this is not all these a trump supporter matter have issues this is the issue across the board and we and we can't sleep on the rug we've got to deal with it head on and we L. L. and we and we can't like how people are overly golf ball if only you know we did that we did that there are some real deep inherent issues that we have to drop across the board and everyone have to look at themselves we all do Bryant we have to look at ourselves and say what are we thinking about what our views on each other how do we how do we treat each other what gave this woman though the thought that she could while full ones keeping her no when we take on the fall two nine one one that this person has been a month of my life how how does how does the brain process that there is something deeply indebted how she feeds the world that allowed her to do that and that is what is so scary to so many people and that's what we have to address my guest is New York state senator Brian Benjamin from upper Manhattan and listeners will take some of your phone calls right now listeners of.

home arena he is now so he's adding another show in Salt Lake he will be performing in at the Vivint again on Saturday March twenty first twenty twenty that's pretty quick trip or turn around yeah and and you know he will sell it out he will be joined by slyly and Tyler yeah you know what his latest album Hollywood leading recently returned to the number one spot on the Billboard top one hundred he's so as fans are called post east coast east yeah like that's what you call us and they work raw and I understand that the cannabis enthusiasts who are also fans post loner called post toasty let's see west high school students staged a walkout yesterday after principal for white was placed on leave for allegedly driving three drunks students home of the students told fox news that they were blackout drunk at the school when white gave them a ride instead of contacting law enforcement so does the drunk students were interviewed by will not they were sober when they were interviewed they said we were yes we were drunk and we were blackout drunk and so the principal gave us a ride home rather than calling the cops we have a good relationship with Ford which is why I think he did what he did he was looking out for us said of the levy a Monet who told fox thirteen she was one of the students that white drove home in the Salt Lake City school district did not confirm the reason for placing white on leave but it seems obvious this is what it is hundreds of students were seen participating in the protest on Tuesday chanting free Ford free Ford and throwing water bottles and text books although he did break the rules I feel like just one thing shouldn't make for get fired or be dismissed from our school because all the things he's done for our community said west high school senior class president Felix Ortiz a coach at West titled students they would not be penalized for holding a protest apparently all the students think he should have another chance they were they were they really like and they think he's done a great great there you've done great things for this has he explained why he's not smoking call current season not spoken about it as far as I know an audit earlier this year found police officers who break the law this is in so this is in Salt Lake often get lenient punishment compared to other states but what about officers who don't break the law but do something troubling like use excessive force or make an arrest without probable cause or perhaps have sex while on duty a two news request a disciplinary records from more than a dozen law enforcement agencies in Utah there they had here's a sampling of some of them a police officer fired after a complaint about section is patrol car well on duty so that would that would be about okay yeah right the part that was in Saint George the Dartmouth recommended that he be each be terminated a state troopers can easily and accidentally give tickets to the wrong drivers the twenty time so far this year troopers working for the Utah highway patrol been written up and sometimes suspended for a data entry error error they click on the wrong name giving the wrong person a citation you can see how that would happen yeah shouldn't but there it is you're doing paperwork I mean it can be a life altering mistake they say yeah and we shouldn't let it happen yes disappear deputies to be it was was disciplined over an arrest concerning a flawed investigation we were county sheriff said that the deputy made an arrest without without actually investigating enough you just rest and so there was some but they but they didn't do much to him they're saying don't do that again it's an interesting there's a whole interesting article about that on channel two website or more coming Caitlyn cited we all make mistakes that our job it's just that when police officers make mistakes at their job that they the consequences are do you know I or see I'm sorry to tell you this but when you make this mistake here on the radio from hell show the consequences are very great it's very grave ambassador Kurt Volker former special envoy to Ukraine tried to walk back significant elements of his prior testimony in the second house impeachment hearing on Tuesday where he also called a conspiracy theories but he didn't realize in his prior dealings he said that by a very small stood for in for what of others knew to be a pro probe of the bidens when they were talking about the reason well I didn't know that that means meant that they were investigating the bidens I just thought they were talking about that energy company breeze month so basically what he did say was yes yes it happened it's not as bad he thinks it's not as bad as the people trying to make it but he also said I had to keep telling Rudy guiliani that he was pursuing conspiracy theories that weren't true in Ukraine so that's pretty and we can he does confirm that the phone call where the president of the United States tried to get the president of Ukraine to investigate the bidens yes that did occur their defense is going to be yeah so in sand room the Duke of York has denied an alleged liaison with Jeffrey EPS dean's slave he said it was not possible because my diary was full the day while I was in the city as a patron of the outward bound trust in his excruciating interview with BBC's Emily but tell us he appeared to squirm when asked about it but firmly replied I don't think any of that could have happened at all there's no way I could have had sex with a teenage girl that was supplied by Jeffrey obscene No Way even though there are plenty of pictures of him with her and even though he was staying at Jeffrey have apps dean's house it was convenient yeah No Way with a I wanted to break up with
