The Case Against Cancelling Lincoln With Brian Kilmeade
"Stuff. So I want to start with your book, Brian, because your books are always so historically compelling and important. And I have a real soft spot for Frederick Douglass. I think he's such an important American figure that people don't know about. The book is the president and the freedom fighter, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and their battle to save America's soul, tell us about the book and then tell us about the interesting relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Hey, you know, I've had a chance to talk to your group too, and they're most intriguing people around. It gives you great hope for the next generation. But what I think this is, is fortunate is the timing. I didn't do it for this reason, but it was one of the reasons why there was so much interest in the book in that we're all talking about race again. We're talking about history again. We're talking about 1619 project again. We're also talking about CRT. All right, we don't talk about that we're looking you and I are trying to look to whitewash history. Don't say that fox looking to say, don't talk about slavery. I'm telling you right now. You can not talk about Frederick Douglas and not talk about slavery. He was born as slave. And do we soft better? No, it's in his biography. He wrote it 7 years after escaping freedom. He said, if you just busy, I could speak well and he had a great vocabulary. People started doubting that he was actually a slave he took his shirt off. Look at my back. Got whipped up beat, never knew his birthday, never knew his parents, but still there was a thirst to learn. So again, education is in the news. Frederick Douglass thirsting for it. Lincoln, but his dad would yell at him. What are you learning for? That's not going to help you work the field. This guy had a thirst to learn one year formal education. What are we talking about? This guy studied the founding fathers on his own. I did Frederick Douglass. And the more that they learned, the more they wanted to learn and just think about this. We're learning in school that America is inherently erased this country when these two people are in a very rough and rugged America without any social safety net without any, I don't know social infrastructure to bail them out. And they couldn't wait to make our country better. They weren't judging our country. They were involved in our country. And I think that's what the big message is.
Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Their Battle to Save America's Soul With Brian Kilmeade
"I'm talking to Brian kilmeade, author of the president and the freedom fighter, and you just shared something that I really was I never thought about this. So when Lincoln is elected in 1860, a number of states had seceded. First South Carolina 6 more. Okay, and so that's before his inauguration. Before he gets to The White House. Okay, so he's elected. They secede. And then on the assumption he's going to free the slaves and they're not going to deal with it. And he says to get them back into the union, he says you can have your slaves. Thirteenth Amendment could be yours. Okay, so that's the freed slaves. You could be enslaved. And so exactly how did that go? So obviously you said that Frederick Douglass feels betrayed. So it took him some time. I mean, it's kind of funny because you get this with Lincoln. He takes off everybody and at some point, right? And a real conservative today would say suspending habeas corpus. I don't know. You know, it's like it's very interesting that real leadership will do that. It will take off everybody in a way. But so for a while, it seems to me that Frederick Douglass must have not been very pleased with him. Absolutely not. And then when he brings up colonization to solve the problem of the African Americans in America, he say, listen, we made a big mistake. It happened before we were born. So can we send you back? So he invites newspapers, all the press with him, like selective members of the press. And he brings in African American leaders, doesn't invite Douglas. And he says, made a big mistake. Obviously, blacks and whites can't live together, and it's part of this part of the reason this is the reason for the war. So I would like to make you an offer give you plenty of money to go back to Central and South America or wherever you want to go. Douglas, everyone in South America or Africa. Africa, too. He said you could go wherever you wanted to go. We will send you. So we will free you and let you go. Absolutely out of the country. Out of the country. And this bothered Douglas. Beyond by these, I'm an American. I don't want to go anywhere. Where am I born? I'm born here. You got to send me elsewhere. Since when camp blacks and whites get together, remember, and I haven't brought this up yet, but they have another similarity. They both read this book called the Colombian orator. The Columbian order teaches how to speak publicly, teach how to hold yourself and also has great essays from these people like Cicero, Socrates, George Washington, people in our past, and they're thinking big and grandiose. So you wonder why that speech worked at 28? Lincoln's been reading every day since 7. That's right and envisioning himself on that level without the cockiness and ego with the humility to know that it may be what he was capable
Fox's Brian Kilmeade Discusses His New Book 'The President and the Freedom Fighter'
"I'm talking to Brian kill me, you may know him from fox and friends, but he's written a lot of books. This one is called the president and the freedom fighter Abraham Lincoln Frederick Douglass in their battle to save America's soul. America soul could use a little saving right now. But we're not going to talk about that. What made you want to write a book combining these two figures? Well, I was looking for the last time I was here. You kind enough to interview me about Sam Houston, the Alamo Avengers. So I try to find an angle not plowed and the Alamo is, but San jacinto isn't 9 months later he ends up taking him out as San jacinto beating Santa Anna in 17 minutes because Texans know it, but the rest of the world. So I go, what's next? The Mexican war, I didn't think had enough. My opinion, I'm sure there's a lot there with Lee in the quartermaster grant and the fact that these generals fought on the same side and then years later, they'd be trying to kill each other and a lot of them successfully. I said, all right, the Civil War. What could I do that's not plowed ground from Ken burns a series to the remarkable book, David blight wrote about Frederick Douglas Scott? I think the book of the year, 5 years ago. And then what about Lincoln? I literally you and I gave the same situation. We get books about linking to our desks all the time, and they're all great. I'm waiting for nobody who's written been written about more. It's like maybe three people like who've written about Napoleon Jesus, Lincoln. I mean, I don't know how many books have been written about Lincoln. So yeah, what do you do for a fresh angle on the Civil War? So what I wanted to do is also I didn't mind tackling race, but I wanted to do it through quotes, not opinion. And racist never left the news, Black Lives Matter is raging at the time. And then you have you have a situation where as late as Condoleezza and rice Condoleezza Rice on the view, having to defend herself growing up in a Jim Crow south who knew all about racism, but grew up as his conservatives says, don't ever let it be an excuse. So I said, what have I talk about their parallel lives to the degree in which they read a lot of the same books? Did they overcame incredible obstacles? Nothing like Frederick Douglass. I get it. The guy was enslaved until he was in his 20 years old, two tries, got out in the second time within 7 years has a biography. It's a bestseller, and then starts a world tour and becomes famous in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and England. This guy was a slave ten years before, but decides to come back to America because his 4 million enslaved 350,000 slave owners and he sees potential in this guy Lincoln and the Republican Party that we're finally ready to do

Yeah, I started doing it in junior high. I thought so. Yeah, it was crazy. Playing pop Warner football and they grabbed you. It took me 12 years to be to get to Fox. And then once I got there, I realized how great it was, even though no one had heard of it yet. So when it started, I started filling in as a sports guy, and then it evolved and things started going crazy from the war from the election mess to the war on terror to the Iraq War. First election mess. Failure to a 2000 Chad hanging chads. Yes. So you are the youngest living institution in the country. Seriously, that's amazing 25 years from the beginning.

"Yeah and thanks for bringing me to that So what happens in life as soon as he started reading opening up his mind and really realizing what life could be reading about George Washington's Cicero Socrates the Bible And that's where they never told slaves to read because they thought a few educated and they want more We just want them to work for free And we all wanted to see what life could be because we wanted to think that they're inferior If you taught a slave to reiterate you could be arrested It was against the law He was determined to find another way Plus he was growing up in an area where you want his friends will wait Kids don't see color He was convinced of it he wrote about it because I'm convinced you don't see color adults make that And that's why it's just not digressed too much The CRT conversation you're having on a regular basis is not a side conversation It is the conversation because you're making first grade and look at their skin why You're making a fourth creator wonder if there are pressure why The two original question he tried is everything self esteem is everything So he they're trying to beat him and break him because he is so obstinate and so determined to matter questioning everything They sent him to a slave breaker And they slave breaker decide to do is going to work into the bone The way they describe it he was going through It sounds like he was dehydrated And instead of helping him they beat him He escapes and goes back to his original master And he goes you got to go back I licensed you Adam getting paid for this You got to go back So he has to go back And then all of a sudden you know he's going to get a beating Grabs his leg He breaks free to try to tie him up He won't have it He asks for help the guy when you get it So it's Douglas 17 years old against the slave breaker He goes I wouldn't attack him but every time he got close I busted him And went on for over an hour according to Douglas's biography and others And he gave me every guide that calls he beat the hell out

Hardly ever i certainly was taught this only a little bit. We know less about is what came after after the union's victory which is a successful effort by those same confederate forces to win back white supremacy in the south and to win back. The story of their own nobility and those victories are marked with monuments to the confederacy to the losing side to the traders. Like this one.

"Ridden in ireland. Actually now we mentioned you mentioned earlier on. You were here in february and just deal the week. We had the unveiling of the the walking tour around the city of the places that he visited. How important is it to you that we take this man and his memory so seriously. It means the world to me. I not to get too koumba ya or goes to miracles but in may of two thousand nineteen. I was in rochester on tour with hamilton. And i took myself on a day off to the cemetery. Where frederick is laid to rest and you gotta walkabout Over half mile into the cemetery to find his burial plot. And there's a beautiful gravestone. Even chairs for sitting people do stem time sitting there. And i spent about three hours laying there talking to him and saying you know. Use me. put me to use verdict if you can hear me. Put me to use it's long overdue. For frederick douglass design. Guys i was just speaking to director charles randolph. Right about all the projects coming up about frederick. It's his time he's back in the he's back. You know these things happen in this way. So the more frederick products better and it's important because he's a self made man. Now i know people get prickly yourself made what i mean when i say that his he. He had the gumption he had the dass ity to say. I'm going to claim autonomy and nothing but death will stop me and that's that's an important message nowadays. If if taken the right way it can spin out of control. I i do. I do understand that. I'm aware of that. But for people of color for anyone feels they are in an press. Rupe anyone who feels that their voice is not heard. Frederick douglass is the is the person for you dig into his writing. I just gave this big speech in poughkeepsie. Using his words and the things he was saying could have been written yesterday. Pj why does he mean so did. This is deeply personal. Sense paul speaking to you. Why does he meet someone to you. Personally i personally have felt that i. I've often found myself in rooms where my voice wasn't heard of often found myself rooms rather misunderstood. I've often of rooms where people find it. Unbelievable that i've had any kind of suffering as a gay man in america because on quote well-spoken in quote At at at frederick ran into that a lot too. I feel like i'd vibrate on On his journey in in many ways people wouldn't believe his stories of how bad slavery was because intelligently about it. I mean what a catch twenty two when i tell people experiences with police mattel. People might experiences with people telling blatant lies about me because they don't feel on behaving the way that i should that i don't know my place so if people don't believe me because of the way i talk about it so you get caught in the in this in this place of will if i show you out who i am and how complex i am and you don't believe me when i tell you. Some of the wrongs that he'd be routed. Where i was thinking was that maybe they detains. That frederick douglass was saying all those years ago and his determination and his drive deed he opened the door for a man. Like you to be as successful as you are today. He opened the door. He open the window. He you know he's holding the door still absolutely absolutely but that means it is my responsibility to keep his words alive so that the next generation will know that. There's someone because listen. We have no recording of his voice. You have no video that we can watch although i do stand on my claim. That frederick was the first ever social media influence because he was most photographed human being of the nineteenth century and he very much curated his image. You never smiled in his photographs. He didn't wanna propagate this image of the happy slave. There was nothing happy about slavery. Frederick often said so. He curated that image and that was the that was his modern. He gives a modern and monitor time and that was his way of of curated his image and i believe it is important to do what we can to keep it alive down. I get the sense from listening to you. Paul we've come a long way since the days of frederick douglass but we have more work to do always more work to do always more work to do. Pj you know. What i'm discovering in ireland is incredible. It's incredibly useful but it's also a lesson for the people of ireland. What at one of the things. I'm discovering is Frederick was there at near the onset of the great famine. The great hunger and some irish people will talk to me about it and say yeah no. It was an attempted genocide. Yeah a lot of people believe that. Paul was enough. There was enough to go around with the british took it and tried to service debt. A lot of people believe that yet and so And some won't say it. And what. I what i sense in that as an outsider looking in is man. There's a conversation that that you all need to have your very humble and cheyenne. You're not people who brag or I find that. We have a lot in common but black america in irish people. This sense of we've been through enough. Let's get on with it you. We're we're both kind of just. Let's get on with it type of people right. Yeah but i think maybe that conversation needs be awakened in there might be something there to open up the pride in the next generation to say. Hey were survivors. Hey we're incredible you know we don't want to say that maybe just out of it. You know. listen it's a conversation and if fascinating i want to awaken that and also that it was irish women. Were leading away with the abolitionist cause because the women played a huge role didn't patriots visit while he was here. I mean even cork huge role played by women. Yes and isabel jennings was arranging his speeches and helping him but sales of his book. He would have books being sold in three different locations while he's giving the speech and so after he came out he'd have to stop by the three locations to meet and greet and check on the boeton. Isabel handled it all while she was receiving letters from dublin sending letters to the next city to get him set up in limerick in limerick. It's the fisher sisters and then in belfast's marianne mccracken but these women kinda slide by history We don't give them their due but in my series. They really do now. Let's talk about the television show that you're working on. I believe an eight parter wayne. And where are we likely to see it. When is you know one of those things where we say. Slow and steady wins the race. We're working. We're taking different meetings Ken morris frederick Grandson as come on board as creative partner and even today there's phone calls like so that we need that bigger producer. Come on so that we can focus on true development. So i'm hoping within a year and a half. We are in production meaning. I would consider this entire year next year and a half three production china poland. Some irish actors. If you send circa cloud where will it be a documentary or a docudrama paul. What will it be. It'll.

Working as consul. General of haiti. Frederick disagreed with america's decision to acquire important haiti and converted to a military station in eighteen. Ninety one this division. And course of action. 'cause frederick to have to resign from the position as he truly did not believe in the cause. Frederick would spend the final years of his life in dc where he continued to be committed to activism and political justice. Sadly frederick's wife passed away on august fourth. Eighteen eighty two from a stroke. Frederick would go on to marry his secretary and an almost unheard of mood. That would put him at odds with his family. This was nothing new. To frederick and he would not be phased to speak more on his previously mentioned accolade of being the most photograph man of the nineteenth century. This was due in large part his visibility in his community and promoting the image of an educated intelligent and established african american man. I would also be involved in african american educational institutions in the dc area. His most prominent appointment was on the board of trustees at howard. University frederick was on board of trustees with howard university from eighteen seventy one to eighteen ninety five interacting with inspiring other trailblazers. Such as i to be wills can hint frederick would collaborate with either on a few projects. All centered around preserving and furthering african american culture in history. Frederick douglass passed away on february twentieth. Eighteen ninety five just after his birthday. Frederick's wife then created the frederick douglass memorial and historical association to preserve his home in all its contents. Fredericks home in c. Called cedar hill be acquired by the national park service in nineteen sixty two. It was then established as the frederick douglass national historic site in nineteen eighty-eight. Fun fact black. History month was established in february based on frederick's birthday of february fourteenth which was a guess to put it plainly frederick douglass was a formidable figure and activist in orator a writer. Our human rights advocate a husband and a father. Most importantly frederick was a man of action. Frederick lived a life that many of us could not even dream of enduring the suffering. But frederick didn't endure frederick overcame persevered and flourished. He went from being denied work on the shipyard to being invited back to the white house. He went from being illiterate to publishing multiple autobiographies newspapers and monthly publications. He went from being told he would amount to nothing to be. One of the most renowned statesman of his time frederick saw the status quo and thought. I'm going to change this. We can only hope to gain a modicum of the state leanness. That was frederick douglass..

"African americans were freed from slavery but still had much work to do to establish themselves in a society that did not want to welcome them. Frederick worked in various ways to help extend civil rights to newly freed. African americans in particular frederick supported several amendments further protecting and establish african americans such as suffrage and instituting the fourteenth amendment. To put it simply. Frederick was an advocate for human rights. It is not well known. I don't think that frederick attended the eighteen. Forty eight women's rights convention in new york and was coined. A women's rights advocate frederick truly believed in the concept that african americans should come together and political matters as there was strength in numbers due to the extreme racism and violence being perpetrated against african americans in southern states. Frederick also supported african americans moving to northern areas where they're at the very least tolerated though not wholly accepted it as equals in eighteen. Seventy two frederick would make his big move to washington dc. This is also where frederick would establish his final newspaper titled new national era unfortunately unlike his previous newspapers this one will collapse due to mismanagement just a couple years after it was published. Not to be confused. Though frederick had many other projects going on at the same time in eighteen seventy four frederick was named the president of friedman savings entrust sadly this too would collapse due to poor management within the bank. That frederick was not made aware of until much later the ramifications from the failed bank position did more to hurt fredericks reputation than anything something that he'd worked hard to build in the dc political network. Frederick was able to successfully repair his reputation in dc going on to receive multiple positions in government. Starting in eighteen. Seventy seven frederick was appointed as the first african-american. Us marshal by president rutherford hayes. He was then appointed to the position of recorder of deeds for the district of columbia in eighteen. Eighty one by president. James garfield frederick was also appointed as the us minister resident in consul for haiti in eighteen. Eighty nine by president ben harrison. If you've been keeping track that is four separate.

"Would travel back to america in eighteen seven during his travels frederick was able to acquire financial support from those who believed in him and his noble causes fertig returned home truly free in immediately began work on yet another ambitious project. And what project was that. You may wonder frederick was born to create and publish his own newspaper with this goal in mind. Frederick created the north star. The north stars first issue was published on december third eighteen. Forty seven the northstar was a great success and ranch strong with excellent readership until eighteen. Fifty one it was at this time. That frederick decided to combine his paper with another famous anti-slavery publication in the area called the library party paper to ultimately form frederick douglas's paper. Yes you heard that correctly. The newly-formed newspaper was called quite simply frederick douglas's paper this alone demonstrates just how much brand recognition frederick had cultivated in this time that he was able to garner readers with a self-named newspaper. Frederick douglas paper was published until around eighteen sixty in tandem with another paper. Frederick was writing titled the douglas's monthly around. This time frederick was living in the area of rochester. New york this area fostered a thriving. Abolition is community as such frederick was exposed to differing opinions and strategies for eradicating slavery that more so resonated with his own ideals again in spite of the terrible violence perpetrated against frederick. He did not believe in using violence as a means of securing freedom. Frederick firmly believe a nonviolent course of action would be the answer and this principle underscored all of his beliefs previously with other abolitionist groups. Frederick supported the main core beliefs of these groups that the constitution was not to be considered a valid legal document as it supported the system of slavery. These anti-slavery groups also believed that participation in any american politics would be supporting the establishment of slavery and thus abstained from any in all political involvement after frederick was exposed to anti-slavery groups that advocated for abolitionist to become involved in politics. Everything changed frederick realized that this path more so mirrored his own beliefs and he began to share his opinions that encourage political action and intentional involvement. This marked the start of an extraordinary period. For frederick frederick had already begun his rise in american politics and most importantly helped to further the goal of abolishing slavery on a global scale while living in rochester. Fredericks home was used as a stop on the underground railroad. Consequently frederick was able to network and meet many abolitionists during this time period as such later on in eighteen..

Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds so thank you so much for joining me again. This is part. Two of the frederick douglass series in part one. We've followed frederick journey from an enslaved child who was carted from plantation to plantation to a renowned orator and statesman who spent his days educating the public on his experiences in order to abolish the very system that held him captive for so many years. Yes that was a mouthful. Where'd we'd left off exactly. Was that frederick. Have begun working for to abolitionists. Organizations called the american anti-slavery society as well as the massachusetts anti-slavery society fergie quiz engaged in a tense debate with his comrades challenging their call for violence with the need for nonviolence in furthering their agenda again voicing his opinion too much opposition within his camp. But if anyone was familiar with going against the grain it was frederick douglass during this time period. While frederick traveled in spoke about his life he began to realize that his audience doubted the authenticity of his stories. Although frederick had indeed been enslaved people would point out articulate in educated he was highlighting his other worldly public speaking skills saying that someone who was enslaved would never be able to speak in such a way. These characteristics were presented as evidence that fragile could have never lived. The life he'd claimed with that in mind frederick began important work just a few years after his great debate at the national convention of colored citizens in buffalo. New york frederick would publish his first. Autobiography fredericks autobiography titled narrative of the life of frederick douglass. An american slave written by himself was published in eighteen forty five. This book was revolutionary and groundbreaking for several reasons. The biggest one being that frederick. Road it himself. It also served as a way of providing concrete intangible evidence of frederick's previous years in enslavement further legitimizing. His cause and his background frederick also published this book with full knowledge that he would be exposing himself to the possibility of being recaptured by his previous owner. Because keep in mind at this time. Frederick was a fugitive slave in quotation marks. At this point. With all this in. Mind frederick stu went ahead and published his autobiography as he believed there was more strength to be shared in the message. Frederick would go on to publish two more autobiographies later on in life. Audience is everywhere from america to overseas were enraptured with frederick's book the books international success encouraged frederick to take his lecture campaign across the pond right after his book was published frederick. We spent a few years traveling around the uk giving his amazing speeches and lectures. Eventually frederick was able to garner enough attention and support that the public campaigns secure his freedom was created in the uk. This campaign was successful. And frederick was legally granted freedom from his previous owner who still pursued frederick ruthlessly especially after his growing successes with his freedom and international fame in tow frederick.
Caller Wonders About Networking Conservative DAs to Be Harder on Crime
"To try to find a way to rally D A s. That are pro conservative. And institute a network type of agreement, um, of all of them that they will not go for a minimum sentence. To start out with on people that are up for crimes. Now there's a lot of reasons like why they're not going to do this number one They don't have enough personnel. And so they try and plead what the way he used to work to try and plead the minor cases, you know, like jaywalking or tickets or stuff like that. In order to focus on the on the heavier in tougher cases. If they were to try every case, Um Then you would have 99% of the cases would never get into court. And that's a fact. Because of the level of crime that goes on and the level of crime that is that is created that has nothing to do with property or the or personal injury and so forth. They have to handle all of it. That's number one number two. They're not going to agree with another D A Because every community is different than most of these days are elected. And so you won't find a network of D A is like the A. D A in, uh In Cape Girardeau, Missouri, agreeing with the D a in, uh Just pick another another town in Frederick, Maryland, because they really have nothing in common and they have to answer to their own localities. This is not complicated. It's not about a network of agreements and so forth, and so on. It's about enforcing the law. It's about getting judges who are going to comply with the law. It's about putting bad people in prison. We did it 30 years ago, 40 years ago under Reagan And the crime levels went down, but we had a Kabbalah of Radical libertarians. Um, these phony civil rights groups. Activist groups and so forth, and so on. That all got together and say We are a decriminalized legalized on and on and on.

Frederick speech was an absolute hit and he was promptly recruited to join the group. It can truly be said. That frederick wasn't abolitionist. His entire life but he began to travel and spent his time promoting after joining the massachusetts anti-slavery society as well as the american anti-slavery society. The belief of the american anti-slavery society was that slavery was a moral wrong. That should be eradicated through.

American abolitionist named henry highland garnet gave a speech with the central theme of slaves having a violent uprising against their owners. This was a controversial declaration and one that sparked a fierce debate. Between frederick and henry fergie made it clear that he did not support such a notion or any plan of action that insinuated or required violence consequently frederick strength in his beliefs. Put him at odds with those who looked just like him. Other african american abolitionists were very much in favor of the idea of an uprising. Putting frederick as the odd man out although his beliefs were not universally liked or accepted. This did not prevent frederick from being vocal about them. It's difficult to stand up for what you believe in but even more so when the people who are supposed to be your allies. Become your opposition.

"Fifty seven in Frederick Maryland and it's fifty five outside our studios in friendship heights at eleven eleven one year ago this weekend Virginia's governor seem to be on the verge of resigning over a black face scandal today he's still in office and Democrats are in full control in Richmond so did it all just fizzle out our John Aaron went deeper on where things stand a year later with W. T. O. P.'s Max Smith who covers the state capital if you walk through the halls in Richmond and you watch all of the things that are actually happening I feel like it's actually having a big impact this legislative session of course governor Ralph Northam hung on refused to resign but he then committed to working to address overt and also more structural racism so Wallace is something people are aware of the part that fizzled was the pressure to resign when it became clear he wants and then when Republicans blew through that special session on guns this summer Democrats picked up the big wins in November on the opposition to president trump in support of those gun control measures here we are so what would you say the impact of the scandal has been there is this real concerted effort to repeal racist laws that are still on the books from decades ago whether they're actually still having an impact or not and there are also some real efforts to address some of the structural healthcare and other issues that really do hold back black and other disadvantaged communities as we've seen from a a number of research opportunities some smaller pieces of this might have happened if Democrats won control in November but the scale of this the way it's being prioritized in the strength of the legislative black caucus to turn the focus to disadvantaged communities it's something that really was jump started by the commitment to respond to north Ms blackface scandal we should just remind people of how this all happened someone flag a photo on north Ms medical school yearbook page showing one person in blackface and another in a K. K. K. row old north amended up with wishy washy statement on whether he was in the photo then held this wild news conference the next day where he said he wasn't in the photo but he had worn black face to portray Michael Jackson in a dance contest and it was really bad news conference and how he responded there that at the time seemed like he sealed his fate but he said resigning would be the easy way out northern was not the only one caught up in scandal there was Attorney General mark caring with a black face scandal lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax with a scandal involving accusations of sexual assault so where do they stand now Attorney General herring admitted his incident as a student at U. VA and tried to get out ahead of it before people actually saw a photo which was rumored to exist all the attention elsewhere ended up really preventing that from being a major issue for him so far Republicans in control the General Assembly at the time did put a big focus though on the sexual assault accusations against lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax they emerge just as it appeared he would become governor Fairfax categorically denies those accusations he still presides over the state Senate where he does have good relationships of course we did hear tearful stories from his accusers last year too though Fairfax still plans to run for governor next year herring is expected to run to some of the other democratic candidates for statewide office include a number of black female lawmakers in Richmond who feel it's their time of course Virginia has elected one black governor Doug Wilder but has not elected a female governor dance W.

"Thirty in Frederick and the week coming in at thirty two thanks so much Amelia it is six twelve and it was a historic week in Washington next week is shaping up to be the same as the Senate trial starts on Tuesday and there are going to be some star power to tourney's defending the president special prosecutor former special prosecutor Ken Starr and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz we spoke earlier with the Washington post's Robert Costa moderator of Washington week about this star power and what it means for president trump you see president trump trying to frame the trial in his own way and he's come from the television world and he wants his advisers tell me to have in some respects a televised trial the people who are well known personalities like professor Dershowitz and Ken Starr who the public knows making the case on his behalf this is a little bit different from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who wants the process to be a lot more low key Hey Bob the big question about the Senate trial continues to be will there or won't there be witnesses and of course Democrats would love to hear from John Bolton or make Mulvaney how likely is it that they could be called up it's going to come down to a deal and who's going to call the bluff of the other party you need fifty one votes on any agreement when it comes to witnesses that means Democrats are going to need to pull over for Republicans from the majority if they want to have a witness called like ambassador Bolton for now Republicans are saying they wanted **** for tat scenario where if they do call John Bolton as a witness they want to see hunter Biden the former vice president's son called as well you know it was interesting to hear Mitch McConnell awhile ago talk about taking his cues from the president if if what you say is going to come to pass this conflict between the two about whether they want this high profile TV reality show trial or as you say something short and low key that that's over pretty soon that's interesting and that's going to be the tension in the coming weeks what is the final agreement here nothing's really been set in stone at all in terms of witnesses in terms of even the timing of this trial trial all fluid and there's so much happening there so many new developments that is not just about the two articles of impeachment that were walked over in a solemn fashion from the house chamber earlier this week you saw left part is the associate of Rudy Giuliani speak out in multiple interviews so now Democrats not just want to hear from John Bolton but they would like to hear from left parties it's going to come down to where are the votes can any group of fifty one senators agree on some kind of arrangement for witnesses did less partisan party information you found to be most interesting this week Bob or was there something else well it was shocking information but it should be noted that love partis is currently under federal investigation
