Debt Ceiling Deal Gives Unlimited Debt Until 2025
"All right, friends, well, today, as I said, we are hopefully wrapping up or at least putting a big momentary pause on the macro story that has dominated markets for the past few months. Yes, a deal has been reached in the debt ceiling standoff with both President Joe Biden and Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy making major concessions in order to move the matter forward. The deal on the table would suspend the debt ceiling entirely until the 1st of January 2025. Presumably this puts off the next dispute over federal borrowing until the middle of that year and uncapping the debt limit in the interim. The core of the argument is a two -year cap on federal spending, although each side is presenting the story slightly differently. The White House claims the spending cap would reduce spending by around $1 trillion over while the GOP argue that spending cuts are twice that level. New York Times analysis puts the spending reduction at around $55 billion next year and another $81 billion the following year. So let's talk about what's actually in the deal. The set of tradeoffs in the deal have caused outrage among numerous groups of ideologically aligned lawmakers and special interest groups on both sides of the aisle to the point where there are few truly happy with the compromise. Now that of course might mean in America's polarized politics that it's actually a good compromise deal. IRS funding has been cut, with $20 billion of the $80 billion in additional funding to bolster the tax department now being repurposed to fund discretionary government programs. And what's worth noting here is that early in the negotiations, this IRS funding was a red line for the president. You will no doubt remember when he said that he would not accept any deal that benefited quote wealthy tax cheats and crypto traders. Another aspect of the deal was that work requirements for food stamps recipients will be expanded. However, the cohort of people this will affect appears to be small. Only impacting recipients aged 50 to 54 while exempting veterans, the homeless and people who grew up in foster care. However, negligible the effect on the budget, the expansion of work requirements within the benefits program was an important symbolic policy for hardline conservatives. And small as the concession might seem, there are still many on the left who are very, very against

Sen. Mike Lee: Current Biden-McCarthy Deal Is a 'Bad Deal'
"So the deal I've told my audience you know I don't like to bury the lead I should it's fair that you understand my position on it Bottom line up front I think it's a bad deal My fear senator is is this the only deal So I just would like you if you could to address those two questions Is it a good or bad deal And second given our numbers and the fact that we don't control the Senate or The White House do you feel tactically it's the only deal The floor is yours sir Okay I asked her the first question I do think it's a bad deal I think it's arguably an irredeemable piece of legislation Not only fails to live up to limit save grow initiative which passed the House a month ago But that actively undermines our fiscal future So it's designed to limit the good Bill Let me save crow But the fiscal responsibility act is they're calling it Instead guts all of the key elements of fiscal discipline betraying the very principles it purports to uphold and despite its veneer of fiscal prudence it exacerbates our budgetary woes without offering any legitimate redeeming offsetting features or significant reforms As your second question of whether this is the only deal as far as I can tell that is exactly how this is set up And it's set up for that very purpose to be the only deal which is exactly the problem with it This is exactly what people hate about Washington D.C. this thing was negotiated by a small handful of people in private in secret And then those who negotiated it come back and they tell people including the people who had fought so hard to put together the limit save grow act like our friends in the freedom caucus for example this is the deal Take it or leave it but this is all you're going to get The only thing you have to vote on

Most in U.S. say don't ban race in college admissions but that role should be small: AP-NORC poll
"As the Supreme Court decides the fate of affirmative action a new poll suggests what people in the U.S. think. 63% of adults surveyed in May by The Associated Press on the norc center for public affairs research say that the Supreme Court should not block colleges from considering race or ethnicity in their admission systems, but that factors such as grades and standardized tests should be more important, and there was little divide among political or racial lines. The poll reflects general support for affirmative action, even as the Supreme Court is about to rule on lawsuits challenging admission systems at Harvard and the university of North Carolina. It's unknown exactly how many colleges consider race in admissions. The practice has been outlawed in 9 states, including California, Michigan, and Florida, Donna border, Washington
Brett Tolman: The Real Authority of U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves
"Want you to listen to this We can do it here We have multiple platforms Want you to listen to this This is Brett tolman who was a U.S. attorney in Utah really really top lawyer And he's very soft spoken so check it out Cut 22 go But you make a very good point The us attorneys nominated by the president not the attorney general and confirmed by the Senate They are presidential appointees and they serve at the pleasure of the president So despite what the practices may be the last couple of decades you're making the point It's a very important point that the U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. I believe his name is graves That he has his own authority to act that he doesn't have to sit around and worry about what the criminal division of the public integrity section or the U.S. attorney's office or the attorney general or anybody else has to say to open an investigation at a minimum and to bring an indictment correct That's exactly right He has all that authority and I'll tell you something else that I've learned relative to this The outgoing U.S. attorney at the time of January 6th Had identified a very small number of individuals that should be prosecuted And had indicated to DoJ that that was his intention They forced him out because he did not have the same vision that they did in terms of what they would turn the January 6th prosecution into And so I think about that and who they put in in their place and it is someone that will toe the line and follow what Washington D.C. wants And that is the greatest injustice we have because now we see that they will do make decisions and use their power to based on politics rather than based on the facts and the evidence which would result in a lot of people being prosecuted and put in jail including the Biden family

"AP's sports and Mike Reeves, it was a frantic finish at the Indianapolis 500, our Tom McKay reports. Josef Newgarden used a one lap shootout to grab the lead from 2022 champ Marcus Ericsson to win the Indy 500. You know, I wasn't looking to take anyone else out of the race, but I was going to put my car on the line to win. And I was either going to win the race or I was going to end up in the wall. Newgarden driving for team owner Roger Penske survived a chaotic final 40 miles, which saw the race stop three times for Rex. Major League Baseball the rays win a wild one over the Dodgers in Tampa Bay, correspondent Steve Carney provides the details. The Tampa Bay Rays used a 7th inning RBI ground out by wander Franco to break a ten ten tie and defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11 to ten. Both starters got hit around as Gavin stone allowed 7 runs in two innings of work, while Josh Fleming allowed ten runs in 6 innings, including 5 home runs, Tampa Bay finishes at ten game home stands 7 and three, while the Dodgers complete their longest road trip of 2023 with a four and 6 Mark. The Yankees used a 7 run third inning to defeat the Padres ten to 7, Aaron judge and Harrison Bader hit home runs to support winning pitcher Garrett Cole, who is now 6 and zero. This was a good team win today for sure. I mean, being able to kind of subdue them through the middle innings and keep the momentum. I thought played in our favor, but it's just such a luxury to have the offense. Other winners on the diamond were the guardians Orioles tigers royals, Blue Jays, brewers, reds, rockies, Astros, Marlins, Diamondbacks, Mariners, and braves on the PGA Tour emiliano grillo wins the Charles Schwab challenge in a playoff against Adam chic.

Episode 110 - May 28th, 2023 - Boston Making History??? - Burst 12
"This is boss winning game 7, but I'm like they won by one by luck. So I'm like game 7 to me is like, if you're a boss and figure not comfortable. I don't know they're not comfortable. And if you're Miami fan, you're like, you're disappointed, but you're like, okay, we can do it again. But you have the legs for it. You got the breath, you conditioning for it. You have the mental stamina to endure this again. Exactly. I don't know, man. I really don't believe they do man. I'm sure Jimmy Butler does, but this is body can handle it because you know, like I said, Jimmy can he can run against the wall every now and then and burn himself out. And now we don't know. That wall you're talking about, I was looking to see it maybe game three or four of Denver. The wall is going to be tomorrow. That's the wall bro. I think you're right. Walls game 7, man. Whatever energy he could have. You could have had along with rest. That shit be sale, bro that ship is sale. Unless it plays out of his mind, has the best career. Bam is, to me, them is a key. 'cause they're giving you shots. But you gotta make it. Yeah? Yeah, you do. Four or 5 and 6, you gotta come bring it, bro listen. If I'm slow, you gotta put Kevin Love it on that front line, man. It's not right. Grab these rebounds. He's not right. Well, you need someone. You need someone. That's not right. That's a problem. He used to start and then they took on the rotation. I think he's hurt too. It's a damn shame. That's a problem with Miami is that they're basically limping into this playoffs. Damn. Tyler hero, Victor LL depot, Kyle Lowry, Kevin Love. For your players that were giving you quality, you know, minutes, they're hurt. Listen, the window that Pat Riley's got along with the way the east is. You got to get another great player for Jimmy. Now, so what do you predict for game 7? Honestly, if I'm a betting man, I could predict a ten point difference in favor of Boston. Maybe I'd say probably ten 13 point difference to your Boston. Most of my plus 13, I could see I could see an 87 one O one type situation. I got three and a half push. I can see either team pushing. And winning narrowly. I don't see a blowout. I can't see a ten point lead for Boston. What's up, man? I'm just, I'm looking at a team who had them dead to rights, I think that's going to be psychologically spent as they are physically spent. But more psychologically. Like, you know, like, you know, at this point, everybody's, you know, physically spend and stuff like that, but your body adjusts. Psychologically speaking, I think then boys is done, bro, I really do. You know, I don't think so. This is, this is the very worst case scenario for Miami. I think this is something they can salivate. Because if you think about their AC, no, they shouldn't be here, but they should be, but you are. So it's like, okay, if punch way above their way, but I think they've reached their, I think they reach their maximum, man. I really do. I got a three and a half. I think they have a Vegas guy at three and a half. Could usually when there's three and a half, that means you figure the home team. So usually when it comes to sports bets, if you see a plus negative three negative 7 or negative ten, they favor the home team. But I think they got a three and a half. So it was three and a half that means that it's a push. Listen, I'm looking at momentum. I mean, I don't see my ultimate Boston. Games four and 5. Yes. Game 6 to me, I look as a fluke. I think it's the same bet, bro. It was the hand of a guy that got that child 'cause they had less time, like if everybody was 2.1 on the clock, they're outta here. They're not, it's over. But this is the same thing. We said last year in that game 7, between these two teams. You know, there was one shot away from being eliminated. Yeah. It was Jimmy Butler, that made that shot, right? I think he shot a three coming up. He took you, buddy, but then go in. Yeah, he took it. He rimmed out. Yeah, man. So who's to say, but I can say it's a man fortune favors the bold man. We will find out. Boston's been hella bold in a situation that they put themselves in that they are like on the verge of turning around. Here's to me, who's a player, if Miami really wants to help Jimmy Butler out?

Ledger Recover Announcement Leads to Massive Crypto Uproar
"For the last 24 hours, all anyone has been talking about is ledger. It's a story that hits from so many angles. It's a story of technical challenges and tradeoffs and crypto UX. It's a story of let's call them challenges of corporate communications and marketing, and it's a story about the fundamental principles of self sovereignty that underlie the industry. So let's try to parse through it, shall we? On Tuesday, ledger announced a social recovery feature called ledger recover for their popular line of hardware wallets. Now, this feature sent crypto Twitter into a frenzy as we will see. Security experts warn that this feature was unsafe in its fundamental design and potentially revealed previously unknown security design flaws for all ledger users. So first, let's do a quick definitional explanation of what social recovery actually means. Social recovery is a design feature that's common in lots of crypto storage setups. It's offered by a range of companies in the industry. Now, there are a multitude of different security designs for this feature. One low tech version, for example, would be splitting your seed phrase into multiple sections and handing single parts to a group of trusted friends and family members. This would allow you to recover the entire seed phrase if you ever needed to. More complex implementations use multi sig wallets and trust a group of different people or companies with the individual keys to the multisig. This setup allows a group of these trusted key custodians to collaborate and recover your wallet, even if you've lost the keys. Now, importantly, all social recovery setups carry some amount of trust and risk alongside. Primarily your trusting that your social recovery delegates won't collaborate without your instruction to recover the wallet and steal your crypto. With growing crypto adoption, many believe that social recovery is a potentially important way to allow less technical users who don't trust themselves to store a seed phrase to access non custodial crypto storage solutions.
"first line" Discussed on WLS-AM 890
"If I can change one line, it's not me trying to be as smart as. They keep saying that these briefings that, you know, what was the Biden team selling? Like they weren't in other words, they're trying to make the point that this is not a legitimate business. Biden wasn't selling widgets. He wasn't selling services. Biden was selling access. I don't think I get it. Sometimes it is better to ask a question to make an assertion, but I think in this case, maybe ask the question and then answer it. What was the Biden team selling? Give it a pause. You all know what he was selling. He was selling out. The United States of America. We got to answer that question because if we leave it open ended, there are honestly some dopey liberals out there who will fill it in themselves. He was selling Hunter Biden's expertise in natural really, really. Hunter Biden's expertise in natural gas.

"first line" Discussed on Poke the Bear
"Again, with these guys, it's hard to tell if they like Boston or not Taylor hall was always a Boston guy, so that felt more like a sure thing. You also didn't give up much to get him. So that might be another comp. I mean, again, Taylor hall is value was extremely low last year. He also basically said I only want to go to Boston. So that's kind of why you only give up Björk in a second. You're not doing that with forsberg, but maybe you're right, maybe lysell isn't the be all end all of the deal, which would be nice. It was like the broski then that'd be great. Exactly. Yeah, I think if you're acquiring a rental for the bruins, you're only doing it if you've done your homework of maybe it's not a sure deal that they're going to sign a contract right after you get traded for them. But you heard hall all throughout this stretch before he officially resigned talking about how much he loved boss and appreciated it. I feel like they're doing their homework and you're not acquiring a pending free agent unless you know that it's a guy that'd be interested in staying here long term. I don't think you're giving up a first. It's almost like the Rick Nash thing where, again, they gave up that first gave up a lot for him, a guy like lingering, who could sure use now, but I believe the bruins were pretty candid about that, that it wasn't for the concussions. They viewed him as a long-term kind of piece in this window to kind of pay with creature going forward. It just, unfortunately, the concussion issues made him retire. So I don't think they're giving up a lot for a rental if they don't think it's a guy that they can add, not just this year, but in the years ahead. Imagine creatures looking over, I've measured the burns yet forest breeze looking over going. You got four spray you got Taylor hall now. All after I leave, ridiculous, ridiculous. I've got so much money first. I know. Regular season ends on March 9th and then check extra league. Don't forget. So there you go. You might be coming back. Jumping through waivers and everything. But hey, I mean, there's ways you could make it work. I'm just saying, you know, you get forsberg. David Craig comes back, a team like Arizona claims him. You trade a fourth round pick form. You got David krejci with all impostor knock. He got for his work. I'm just saying. So then in that case. I'm joking. I'm joking. I just went on that. There was now that you're on this, then if those, if that was your top 6, we're getting people so riled up with this. But if it was marchand bergeron forsberg, hall, creature Pastrana, I would comfortably say that's a Stanley Cup contender. I would have no issue saying. That's a wagon of a top 6. I mean, again, that's why I don't know how you make it work with yourself. Yeah, you have to do some major challenges. Yeah, it'd be interesting in the off season if you are intent on actually resigning that like that. But you never know. See how far HC however you say that I butchered that pronunciation, but see how far they go. Hey, you never know. Never know.

"Of things starting. The Philip forsberg trade rumors are in full swing, which is just exactly what you expected, right? Yeah, it's funny when it's funny when the predators were here, like a month ago and they were one of the best teams in hockey. They fallen sense. They're like fourth in the central now, I think, and they've kind of hit a rut. I'm right on this, right? I think so they beat the Panthers recently, which is obviously a big deal, but they lost foreign row before that. Yeah, so yeah. I mean, I don't even know what they're doing because I think we were all in agreement last year that you looked at that team, they didn't really have a loaded prospect pool. You don't really expect them to go anywhere. Last year, it's kind of the year to start selling guys off, right? I mean, if you traded foods work with a year of control, you get a huge return. And you had guys like at home, which we talked about for about 40 episodes of this podcast. So I mean, the fact that they go out, they don't sell, they then resign at home in a few other guys, and now they get to this point where, again, kind of up and down, but you kind of looked at the way they played. That's a team that if they get into the playoffs, wouldn't surprise me if they punch and grind their way through a couple of rounds. I mean, they're a pretty tough physical team. So now all of a sudden, be like, well, yeah, we're going to move our best a far and away our best offensive player. Like, all right, what exactly are we doing here? Yeah, I'm interested in this, because again, you see Soros has the potential as you said to get hot and carry them to playoff series. He was an all star and everything. So Forza works at target, he has a cap hit of 6 million per year. He's a UFA at the end of this year, which is, I think, why they're kind of dumping him. I think aside from the bruins, I think this does it at a bigger point. The team's value, and I don't think there's anything new, but they value top four left shot defenseman way more than they value wingers. I think the predators look at this and granted, I'm not a predator's expert. So I'm not inside information punching this radio right now..

"Love this first line of a recent essay that was written by our next guest and here's what he said 2021 is the year our relationship with work change forever Those words from our next guest we're talking about Dan Shapiro He's the chief operating officer over at LinkedIn The world's largest professional networking platform is seeing millions of users changing jobs and also an increasing number looking for new career paths entirely And LinkedIn expects that to continue It's part of the trend that Dan calls the great reshuffle Right now more people are reconsidering what they want to do in their jobs than what they want to do with their careers that anytime in recent memory we run a survey at LinkedIn that suggested that 59% of professionals in America in 2022 are going to rethink what they want to do And what's interesting is that that is happening at a time when there hasn't been a tighter labor market for professionals in recent memory The economy is growing again There's a massive imbalance in supply and demand for digital skills and what that means is as we come out of this pandemic period as the world becomes more endemic and companies reconsider their policies for how they're going to work in this new world that employees have a much stronger voice than they used to in this resetting expectation So it's going to be a really interesting year So I do wonder too though Dan I feel like the pendulum can swing big time And workers do it does feel like they're in the driver's seat right now as so many employees pick your employee they're all scrambling for workers So employees in many ways can set their terms Does that stick when the labor market corrects itself and a more normal labor market is back with us Does do workers continue to have that leverage and that power Only time will tell but I think there's reason to believe that digital skills in particular are going to remain very tight for the foreseeable future If you look at what's happened over the last few years we were already on this journey around companies going through this idea of digital transformation really digitizing their businesses And the pandemic only accelerated that If you think about the expectations consumers have now about what they expect when they interact with a restaurant or a retailer it is a much more digital experience And that's placing more and more burdens operationally on the companies that need digital talent to make those things real So that is likely to continue for quite some time And that will likely drive some of the policies and practices that many companies adopt So I think that there's some real staying power here What about for elements of this that don't stay We're already seeing companies call their workers back to work right now But we're seeing some shifts Carol and I talked about Apollo for private equity employees offering that one month of remote work That's something that Carol I mean you've covered this stuff forever That was unthinkable a few years ago right Yeah exactly It's really fascinating to see even the financial firms have been pushing back saying okay you can work from home So Dan where are the things that go back to what they were where they were before What are the changes that don't stick I wish I had a crystal ball I think that the thing that is most resident with employees right now is the flexibility People are happier They report being happier when their jobs are more flexible You see that looking at remote jobs is something that if you look at all the jobs on LinkedIn and how many people were viewing different kinds of jobs just a few years ago less than 10% of the jobs were remote eligible and people looked at that number is now 40% 40% of all the job viewing is people curious about remote roles And so I think that the idea of flexibility is something that has staying power exactly where the lines are drawn about what kind of flexibility works such that businesses can need their needs and the teams can be functioning I think that's going to be somewhere where everyone's watching everyone and time will tell You know I recently caught up with the CEO of Cisco and chuck Robbins and even he conceded and a company like Cisco they have been doing hybrid work for years pre-pandemic That's just the way many in the tech industry have been working But even he acknowledged being a little surprised at how innovative everybody really could be during the pandemic Technology has made that much more possible I think about you know as much as we make fun of all the Zoom calls and things you really can almost feel like you're with people Yeah I think we're going to see a tremendous amount of technological innovation in the space Every leader has likely gone through a journey of being skeptical about how teams would operate when they were from home or in a hybrid capacity and things have worked in a lot of ways better than expected and that is coming at a time when there's more investment from software companies and trying to make this better for people So those things come together I think there's a lot of optimism at least I hold that these working styles will be effective but exactly where we land I think it's going to be something off to see Do you think Dan honestly anything is lost without being in person with one another Because I do What I can what I can say is that we have on occasion at LinkedIn had opportunities in a way that was safe and compliance with health guidelines We've had opportunities for some teams to spend time together in person and it is like a spark event It is a breath of share People love having those moments Now whether that becomes something people do more periodically as opposed to every day it's interesting But I think you will continue to see the power of being together and creating connection as being really fundamental to how great teams work Dan eager to talk to you about this story that we highlighted a little earlier in our broadcast about New York City requiring employers to list the minimum and maximum salaries on job postings that's going to start this spring according to The Wall Street Journal it's getting some opposition from business groups Can you talk a little bit about the way that being transparent with these positions when it comes to salary can empower workers Absolutely Well it's a broad trend The trend towards Sally transparency has been happening for years And I think one of the guiding principles behind it is that there's evidence to suggest that it helps remove bias in the process Some people of different backgrounds negotiate differently and oftentimes the transparency that you can bring to the conversation yields outcomes where there is less bias in terms of pay And so I think that's one of the things that's driving it and it's something that we think is a positive Are you seeing more companies post on LinkedIn those salary ranges four jobs that are being offered like do you have any data that shows that the trend is happening on LinkedIn too I don't have any data myself right now but I know it's a broad trend that's going on in the industry I just think the other thing that's going on is obviously we're an increasingly inflationary environment and companies are trying to figure out how that's going to play out in their in their compensation packages And particularly as it's a tight labor market workers are asking questions around how does that what does that mean for my pay And similarly companies are grappling with as employees are working in different locations in the same job How do they reconcile whether they pay different amounts in different cities for similar work So what we're going to find as we enter 2022 is a world where executive teams are going to have to think through pay policies as one of the core questions that they ask themselves That was Dan Shapiro chief operating officer at LinkedIn Still ahead on Bloomberg businessweek it's been an uphill climb for the cannabis industry as regulatory easing has been really slow Tim to materialize Why the head of publicly traded truly is optimistic

I have to get some stuff out of the way first that I have to say every week Otherwise somebody gets mad. I'm Bob Scriven. Oh, remember, I'm not an attorney. I don't practice law. I don't give legal advice. I have a California insurance license I've had for 50 years. I don't sell insurance. But I have a license. So I have to tell you that Have a legal document assistant license issued by and recorded in the county of Sacramento. Um the legal document assistant allows me to prepare legal documents and do direction and request. My license number is Tuesdays are 4-05. And and it expires August of 22. It's recorded in Sacramento County. That allows me to prepare documents such as trust powers of attorney that kind of stuff at your direction and request. But I'm not an attorney, and everything I talk about here is my opinion only quite often. It's a very good opinion. But it's my opinion only And it always revolves around the issues of aging. And here's the easiest way I can explain that. Imagine in your head if you draw a line from left to right. And it was a declining line. It was just put an X at the first part of the line, and it's a declining line. And then at the end of the line, put another X. That's the line. Everybody hopes there on. I'm bored at the top of the line. I die at the bottom of the declining line asleep at night at home. Surrounded by my family. The problem is that's not the way most of us died. 70% of us Are going to die in a building. But I'll a large percentage of us are going to die Demented. Or ill but demented. I'm going to talk about dementia a little bit today. Um Going to talk about the two victims of dementia. There are always at least two victims of dementia. The other line. I want you to draw You can kind of draw it in your head or with your finger. You start to draw the first line. But about two thirds of the way there you bend the curve and the curve goes down. And you put an X and we're that curve starts and until the end, you draw a little box around That's long term care. That's where the issues of aging happen. And that's what I'm going to focus on. I don't care who get your stuff. I don't care who your heirs are. I don't care if you avoid probably. I do care if you avoid probate. That's a nice thing. Nobody wants to go through probate, usually It's nice to not have a conservatorship. But I want to talk about what happens in that box. And that box is called frailty. The name of my book. Is navigating frailty. There's a reason why That was the name of my book. Because it's how to navigate frailty. Frailty can happen because of lots of reasons it can happen because of illness, mental or physical. It can happen because of loneliness. It can happen because of All kinds of things. But rather than an aging I I'd prefer to call it frailty. That's what's going to happen to your mom and your dad and you and your brother and your sister and every single person on the planet Earth is the age. We can't do things the way we used to do. I don't go up ladders anymore because it's stupid to go up ladders past a certain age. So I have somebody usually my son who I heard corralling becoming over and doing it. Um And and But I don't go up ladders. My wife and I don't go bladders anymore. All of us have to succumb to the issues of frailty as we get older sleep patterns change as we get older things a canned hurt and our backs are bad and arthritis sits in then. And all of those kinds of things are going to happen to all of us. It's it's just the way it is.

He testified on saturday for about seven hours before the judiciary committee in the senate testified about president. Trump's attempts to pressure him and other top justice department officials into basically overturning the results of the twenty twenty election. Senator richard blumenthal of connecticut. Was there for that closed. Door testimony on saturday joins us now senator. It's great to have you here. Thanks for making time. Thank you very much rachel. welcome back. thank you How serious is the Set of circumstances. That's being described to you by people. Jeffrey rosen richard donahue in this recent testimony what we've seen a lottery less or and a half years of donald trump and nothing in my experience was more serious than this attempts overthrowing lawful election corrupting and weapon. I think the department of justice absolutely horrifying and graphic chromatic detail. Jeff rosen described. Made it all the more ryota us. He conveyed what was like to live through it. In real time and anybody standing up to the present in the oval office killing the white of that office and the importance of that historic moment really had a very important role in history. And i must say the seriousness of it was conveyed very very importantly during that envy. Obviously this is important for history in terms of accountability both at the justice department and for potentially the former president. I guess there's the question of what happens to this information. We expect that presumably. Your committee will release these transcripts We expect from chairman durban that there may be some report at some point but i was struck by the fact that this weekend after sitting through some of that testimony. Use that you see the prospect for criminal charges here. Does that mean. You're expecting your committee to make a criminal referral or that. The justice department might itself move ahead on these matters already. I we have to go for with our investigation. And of course german will decide what witnesses ought to be pursued. As you've just said be pack will testify on wednesday but there are a great many others who had positions of public trust and donald trump's pattern has been to use acolytes and sicker fans in those positions trust weather in the white house or in the congress as well as in the department where he enlisted. Jeff clark and underline with threats to replace jeff rosen. I think the facts already do in this investigation and reported publicly as you've just done warrant fair consideration for referral to the department of justice. I think that there are very important. Evidence that have to be considered by the department of justice in an investigation of criminal lawbreaking. But the important word you've just use. It is accountability. if anybody engaging lawbreaking. They need to be held accountable. We want to know what happened so it never happens again and that has to be our common purpose here find the facts follow them and the law wherever they go and get all the witnesses. That will voluntarily testify to provide us their truth justice jeff frozen day very credible senator blumenthal just briefly just so i understand when you say that when you talk about the prospect of criminal behavior potential criminal referral are you talking about the justice department officials who essentially participated in this plot with the president or you talking about the former president. I'm talking about what we know right now. Which is that. If one of the department justice officials engage in conduct could be regarded as raking and certainly the pressure brought to bear on department. Justice officials warned consideration possible prosecution. But we need to know a lot more fat. And what i'm saying is at the department of justice has to take fair with at these facts and what they constitute in the way of lawbreaking connecticut senator or member of the judiciary committee. Richard blumenthal sir. It's kind of you to make time to be here tonight. Thank you so much. Thank you all right. We'll be right back. Stay with.

"And of course. They'd be much more likely to do that. If georgia went ahead. I especially if they had this backstop from the us justice department talking about all this fraud in the election and that could be used to justify their actions. So it'd be georgia. I but then presumably it'd be pennsylvania and michigan and arizona wisconsin in nevada everywhere they believe that republicans in control of the state legislature would go for it if georgia went first and did it would republican state. Legislators in those other states do it too if they had back up from the. Us justice department if they had the explicit explicit pretext is explicit request from the us justice department. That they should do it. You think they wouldn't fantasy. This was an actual plan in actual thing that they tried for one it solves an actual mystery thing that has been bugging me since january just before the attack on the capital obliterated. All other news on january six. We learned that the top federal prosecutor in georgia effectively. The top doj official in the state of georgia had suddenly resigned his position. The us attorney and georgia's name is bj pack. We covered it intensively at the time. Why is b.j. Pack resigning particularly when it emerged. That trump had been calling election officials in georgia personally pressuring them to declare the election of fraud. Why did the us attorney in. Georgia resigned in the middle of that kind of pressure from the president. Well as katie benner at the new york times reported while i was trying to teach myself new fishing. That's that us attorney in in georgia bj. Pack he was reportedly told about this plot from trump and jeff clarke the justice department. He was told about the plot that they were trying to launch starting in georgia as the top justice department official in georgia. Us attorney bj. Pack trump appointee would presumably have had to go along with that. Or get out of the way right i mean the plot underway. That trump was working on with a senior justice department official who he then tried to install as attorney general what he was working on was the justice department declared georgia's elections to be corrupt and then tell republicans in the legislature to go ahead and convene themselves into clare trump the winner pick a trump electoral slate to replace the biden. Say the us attorney in georgia bj. Pack at the time would have had to back that up as a justice department official or you would have had to quit. Get out of the way. Well we now know. After he got a call from the deputy attorney general. Richard donahue late on the night of january third. He quit early in the morning of january fourth. And we now know that that deputy attorney general rich donahue and the attorney. General jeff rosen. They didn't sign their names on the bottom of that letter to georgia in this space that had been left for them to sign. And it looks like that. Deputy attorney general which donohue warned the us attorney and georgia about this plot. This actually rational conceivable plot. To overturn the election using fake fraud claims and georgia backed up by the us justice department and backed up and effected by republicans in the legislature of those states.

"And that obviously landed as a bombshell and got a ton of attention over the past couple of weeks. Those notes for first published. I released to the public by the house oversight committee. But here's the other part of those handwritten notes. That made me basically swallow my tongue when i when i printed out the whole set of notes on vacation and read them. It's just a single line on page. Four of these handwritten notes. This is apparently again quoting trump. Most of these notes are just quoting trump on this call and according to the notes trump says in this call center twenty-seventh says to senior justice department officials the attorney journal and deputy attorney general. He says to the georgia legislature is on our side. The reason that is so bad that single line is such a doozy is because of what we now know happened the very next day that call trump says say the elections corrupt and leave the rest of me and georgia legislature is on our side that call was december twenty seventh the very next day there was a letter. Abc news was first published this letter. It's dated the day after that call after that. Call with trump saying just saying the election was corrupt and leave the rest of me that caller he says the georgia legislature is on our side. The very next day december twenty eighth we now know and apparently very trumpy senior figure at the trump justice department man who ran the civil division of the justice department. A man named jeff clarke drafted this letter. That was to be sent to the governor of georgia the head of the state assembly there and the head of the state senate. They're dear governor. Kemp mr speaker. And mr president trump quote the department of justice is investigating various regularities in the two thousand twenty election for president of the united states. The department will update you as we are able on investigatory progress but at this time we have identified significant concerns that may have impacted the outcome of the election in multiple states including the state of georgia the next paragraph of the letters and then linking to the moon bat rudy giuliani fake hearing in georgia in december that was so bunkers ultimately contributed to rudy giuliani having his license to practice law suspended in multiple jurisdictions. But that's what jeff clarke sites is the evidence for this these terrible revelations of corruption in georgia. Jeff clark's letter continues quote in light of these developments. The department meaning the us department of justice recommends that the georgia general assembly should convene in special session to take additional testimony. Received new evidence and deliberate on this matter. The purpose of the special session that department recommends would be for the assembly to evaluate the irregularities in the twenty twenty election determine whether those violations show which candidate for president won the most legal votes in the election and number three to determine whether the election failed to make a proper and valid choice between the candidates such that the general assembly could take whatever action is necessary to ensure that one of the slates of electors cast by the state will be accepted by congress on january. Sixth so again. This is a letter to georgia. Dated december twenty eighth. This is jeff. Clarke had the civil division and trump's justice department writing this letter essentially telling the state legislature in georgia that they should consider the election corrupt because the justice department is looked into it and found all sorts of significant corruption and therefore the state legislature should take matters into their own hands to replace the state's biden electors with trump electors. And do it before january sixth. When the electoral college votes would be counted in the letter. Jeff clarke ethan spells out that although it looks on the surface like only the governor of georgia could call the legislature back into such a a special session like this. He says it is the opinion of the us department of justice that the legislature can call itself back into session even without the governor. Doing anything they can do that on their own authority. I remember the note. Remember that line on page four from the call that happened the previous day trump assuring the attorney general deputy attorney general quote. The georgia legislature is on our side. So the problem here the problem that emerges how dare this happened on my vacation. Often that emerges is that this wasn't some cockamamie fantasy where like the pillow company guy says the supreme court will rule nine but nothing that trump is the lord emperor. This isn't like the cumin cyber ninjas in arizona being found bamboo shoots in the bathroom trash therefore by magically. isn't president anymore. This isn't giuliani being like. Oh there's eight thousand dead people who voted. I mean i mean sixteen thousand dead. People have a million dead people who voted and therefore biden isn't president. This isn't some of that nonsense like we have seen in the months since the election from the president's supporters and people working for him this is an actual plan right. The letter has places for three signature at the bottom. The attorney general. Jefferson rosen at the time deputy attorney general richard donahue at the time and the guy who wrote at jeff clarke had of the civil division. At the time had rosen and donohue agreed with clark that they should sign this and send it think about what that would have meant there of course would have been a national clamor that the us justice department had declared the election to be corrupted potentially fatally so the georgia republican legislature if trump was right if if trump was right that they were on board with this. They're all on our side and if he was right they would have tried to call themselves into special session to to what try to recall the state's biden electors from the electoral college instead. Consider whether the other slate meaning they trump slate should have been sent instead. Jeff clarke sent over this draft letter dated december twenty eighth. He also sent over an email accompanying the letter to the attorney. General in the attorney general in that email. He spelled out exactly that the plan was to do this. Not just in georgia but in multiple states it says quote. The concept is to send it to the governor speaker and president pro temp says it should be president pro tem of each relevant state to indicate that in light of time urgency and sworn evidence of erection of election irregularities presented to courts and legislative committees the legislatures thereof should each a symbol and make a decision about electoral appointment in light of their deliberations. So they're gonna. They're gonna send this thing to georgia saying the justice department has found. Serious irregularities you all should convene yourselves in a special session and look at your slate of electors. Know what i mean. They're going to send this thing to georgia. They believe republicans in the georgia. Legislature are on our side and will act on. It will actually do it. They'll replace the election result in georgia with their own. Choice of trump electors. And they plan to do the same thing in multiple other states. Where again they think. Republican legislators will act.

More attention Moving forward it's a story out of georgia where republicans in the state legislature are gearing up to actually use their big draconian new anti voting law. That's been so controversial. They're gearing up to use it to try to force out. The top elections official in fulton county georgia fulton county georgia of course the democratic stronghold that includes atlanta in these anti-voting bills. That are being passed by republican. Legislators across the country. They're not only making it harder to vote in every way they can. They are systematically changing the administration of elections and the way votes are counted to give partisan republicans control of the process to give them the power to oust elections officials. Who won't do what they want. Republicans all over the country are giving themselves that power to subvert election results and sees the counting process for themselves and now they are actually starting to try to use it in georgia. Which i think is a really really big deal. Deserves more national attention. While meanwhile republicans are succeeding in washington in their efforts to try to stop any national protections for voting rights and fair elections even though democrats control the white house and the house and the senate republicans in washington nevertheless are still succeeding in blocking any national protection for elections and voting rights. they're succeeding. Thanks largely to democratic senator joe manchin siding with them and ensuring that nothing can be done. Republicans are going full steam ahead in the states with this plot while senator joe manchin is blocking anything being done in washington to step up against it. It's just it's incredible. I thought you could sort this out while i was away. I figured i'll be going two weeks two whole weeks. This will definitely be sorted by the time. I'm back now i'm back turns out that was not sorted but over these past couple of weeks. We've did solve one longstanding puzzle that has been driving me nuts since january We also have started to learn the story of why attorney general merrick garland truly has the hardest and worst job in washington. Right now. i mean everybody. In the administration dealing with cova dealing with the climate disaster dealing with the attack on voting rights dealing with the The heroin job of evacuating or allies out of afghanistan. Every everyone in the administration dealing with all of those crises and policing reform and these contested oil pipelines and these authoritarian nightmares that are breaking out in belarus and in hong kong and everybody in the administration has got a hard job right. The world is obviously a mess in lots of ways. But there's only one member of the biden administration heads to work every day with the heavy work on his shoulders of needing to do the work of the agency he runs in this case the justice department but he's the only one who also has to contend with the fact that as he goes to his office every day his office is a crime scene. Right only merrick garland the the attorney general has to contend with the fact that in the post trump era like every day at least every week. Bring some new revelation about how former officials at the justice department. Did it how they work complicit. They went along they acquiesce. They did their part. In the corrupting of the justice department. That happened under the last president. Right it's one thing to break the law that's at its own set of challenges right. It's another thing to have created a generation of bent law enforcement officials. What does merrick garland do with this continually creating evidence of justice department officials having gone along with these schemes. You can't just be like. Ooh hoo glad they're all out of here. Let's make sure we behave differently now. I mean you've got to come clean about what happened. You've got to tell the truth. Find the guilty parties name them give them a chance to defend themselves and explain themselves. Yes but there has to be some accountability or this stuff just happens again and we are starting to learn it and it is hideous and some of the worst of it has been revealed over these past couple of weeks while i was trying to learn to catch striped bass from the shore. Don't worry they were all safe from me. I we get the justice department under mirror garland advising trump's last attorney general and his last deputy attorney general and other senior officials from trump's last days that they are in fact allowed to testify to congress for is ongoing investigations into how trump tried to overturn the election results and stay in power said justice department. Ok'd former trump officials testifying to the congressional investigations of those matters. Then the justice department handed over to those congressional investigations the oversight committee in the house judiciary committee in the senate handed over to them. A bunch of documents from the justice department from that time period. Those documents include notes from the trump deputy attorney general richard donahue from call on december twenty seventh. He's note showing trump complaining in that. Call that there must have been fraud everywhere in the election and the justice department should do more to promote and legitimate the his claims of fraud the notes say president trump told the attorney general and the deputy attorney journal in that call quote just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the republican congressman.

"Great question rachel. The answer to the question is absolutely vaccination will prevent that. It will go a long way to preventing that because remember when you get vaccinated even though you get breakthrough infection. The overwhelming majority of the people don't even get infected in those that do get infected. That's when you get the situation of passing it on to someone else but if you will allow the virus to freely circulate in ninety three million people and give it the opportunity to find vulnerable targets you give it the opportunity to mutate and form another variant. As i've said so many times it's very clear in viral aji that a virus will not mutate unless you allow it to replicate and whatever you can do to prevent it from spreading even though vaccines are not perfect. They're an extraordinarily powerful tool in prevent the spread within the community. The more you prevent the spread the less likelihood that the virus will mutate. This brings up another important point because people say well. I'm healthy the chances of my getting seriously. Ill is very very low. So why do i need to worry about getting vaccinated and the reason is it isn't all about you because if in fact you don't get vaccinated and you do get infected and you're part of the transmission chain and you allow to infect someone else you're propagating the ability of that virus ultimately mutate and if it does mutate to something that does evade the vaccine then we really got problem we're fortunate that the delta variant is relatively well controlled certainly against severe disease by the vaccines that we use. If you allow the virus to just completely freely go around and goes from person to person you giving it an opportunity to evade ultimately even the people who've been vaccinated because if you get a mutant that is very different from delta may be much different and much more transmissible a much more serious than that impacts even the vaccinated people so people getting unvaccinated potentially hurt themselves their family and the community but it also helps possibly to make things ultimately worse for the people who were already vaccinated in terms of that simple idea at the heart of the virological principle at the heart of this that more replication equals more opportunity for variation and mutation. Are you up at night. Worried about kids going back to school in the fall. I mean that is upon us now. That is starting to happen. And we were over one hundred thousand cases again now. We were three hundred thousand cases in january but kids weren't in school we do. How have a lot of people. Vaccinated masks is a whole other issue. We could talk about that separately. But how worried are you about. Seeing large numbers of new infections particularly among people once people are back in school. Well i'm worried about rachel if we don't do the right thing so let's talk about that so we know because we've had experienced now. Eighteen months keeping the children physically out of school has real detrimental implication for them. We know that the development of the children mental health. Who what have you. So you've got a balance. How do we get them to school at the same time that we protect them to get them safely in school. The first thing you do is you surround them with those people who can get vaccinated and are vaccinated so anybody that goes near a child. In school teachers people who work in the school if they're eligible to be vaccinated they need to be vaccinated right away. That's one level of protection then also as difficult as it is for children to be wearing masks. You gotta get everybody to wear a mask in school. And that's what. The cdc recommendation is vaccinate who can be vaccinated and wear masks fathers. I know it's difficult and it's controversal about children and those in school wearing masks. But we don't want to keep the children out of school for yet again another term and at the same time. We want to keep them safe.
