Here's some of the plan that the White House has rolled out a zero tolerance policy for rogue gun dealers allowing at, for example, to aggressively revoke licenses for dealers who they say are knowingly breaking the law. It also calls for increased operations by the FBI, DEA and U. S Marshal Service. There's also a focus on the 350. Billion dollars that was sent to state and local governments.

Does Biden Have an Incentive to Hide Chinese Defector Dong Jingwei From GOP Members?
"Of the biggest stories of our time. Now why am I reporting on it? If I can't prove conclusively that it's true Because the reputations by others saying No, no, no, no, This isn't true. He's over in China. This is all you know Conservative fairy tales. Then why again hasn't the Chinese government conclusively refuted the story by just showing us a picture of damaging way and putting them out in front of a television camera? But that's not the disturbing part of this story. The disturbing part of this story is if we do have damaging way. One of these Chinese spy chiefs, and he has given up the mother lode. Then why would we be lying about it? And why would we be hiding him from GOP members of Congress, Intel Committee people, other members of the Intelligence Committee? Why would we be doing that?

To say that reports of Jingwei's defection were not true. He says, speaking strictly in terms of anonymity.

Fresh update on "gop" discussed on Guy Gordon
"Jr. This is the guy Gordon Show on news. Talk. 7 60 wjr. So the Republican led Senate Oversight Committee really unequivocal in this, saying there was no significant evidence. Of fraud in the 2020 presidential election. And when it came to the idea that hardware was to blame the Antrim County narrative if you will. He said. This the committee finds those promoting Antrim County is the prime evidence of a nationwide conspiracy to steal the election. Place. All other statements and actions they make in a position of zero credibility. Events in Antrim County sparked a significant amount of concern about the technology used to count ballots. This concern led to much speculation, assumptions, misinformation, and, in some cases, outright lies, much great doubt and confusion. And they want the people responsible for perpetuating that and for fundraising off of that to face a criminal investigation. Now, I would think that that kind of conclusion After an exhaustive investigation. And calling for a criminal investigation for those that tried to undermine faith in our system would receive maybe at least of faint amount of praise from Democrats that Republicans in this case did their jobs. They did it with dispatch. They were comprehensive. But know what they're doing is they're spinning this to say, Well, you see there, there's no need then for any election reform all these voter suppression things that Republicans have proposed. Aren't necessary and they were based on a lie to begin with. Well, of course, Senator Ed McBroom and others and we've had long discussions with them, Senator Mike Shirkey the same, they say Absolutely not. The absence of this conspiracy does not mean that the system is okay. Confidence in the system has been eroded and no less illuminate. Airy than Barack Obama thinks that voter ID is an okay thing. He said as much with Yahoo News the other day as he was endorsing Joe Mansions alternative to H R one. He said. It's not perfect..

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refuting a report from an inside source who told the media that Pelosi had told colleagues she was planning to establish a select committee to investigate the events leading up to the deadly attack and the breach of the Capitol building.

Those things can't be true. Mhm. That would be some serious ju jitsu. If both of those stories were true at the same time. They can't be. But the second part of this daily East peace is fascinating. The reporter writes. Some longtime observers of U. S China relationship. Think that the U. S China relationship think that the Biden administration's willingness to address such a normally highly secretive issue was motivated by two issues. Listen up number one. The reason they think the Biden administration is shooting down this story that we have dungeon way they say Reason. One quote, is they don't they want to exercise an unnecessary additional irritant and the still downward spiraling bilateral relationship? Said this guy, Robert Manning an expert on these types of things. So there is you one. They say, You know what? Maybe we have a lot of friction with China right now. We don't need the friction that Biden administration shooting this down. Maybe we do have them and they just don't want to make the Chinese Communist Party looked like a bunch of idiots, which it would if one of their spy chiefs. Elected to the United States and gave up the mother lode. So reason number one. Maybe we just didn't want to irritate them. Well, that would be pretty dumb. But reason number two is just peachy. I mean, if this doesn't tick you off. I don't know. I will. Here's the second And possibly equal motive. He said. Quote to beat back a Republican campaign to defect. Blame for the coronavirus pandemic in America, from Donald Trump to China's Wuhan Institute of Virology Lab, and, by extension, Fauci. Has been critical. The former president's response to disease can you admit listen to what I just did You hear what I just told you? That the yeast here is speculating. That one of the reasons we may have this guy Don Jingwei and not be saying anything is because Don Jingwei, this Chinese spy who may have defected Is giving up the mother lode of information. That proven job I would have will have proven Donald Trump right the entire time. That the Chinese government was at fault. For the unleashing of the coronavirus around the world and that one of the reasons they're hiding him and hiding him from GOP folks and others. It's because of political motives to prevent Donald Trump from accumulating a political victory. Can you imagine the depravity of that if it's true? Folks. If that option two is true. We have on our hands in America and far worse condition than you and I ever imagined. That we could have the mother lode. Of intelligence right here in front of our eyes, sources around the world the Chinese government is using to infiltrate intelligence entities. Names of spies in the country, the origins of the coronavirus that we could have this and that this is being kept from key members of the intelligence community in the Republican Party for political motives. Even by the low standards I have for Capitol Hill in the DC Swamp. This would blow through the floor of depravity. Do we have them or do we not? Again. You would think it would be very simple. There'd be a simple proof of life video. They're very they put it out on social media. Do I give him a pic holding today's headline? Listening to today's Dan Bongino show. Whatever nobody cares, there's a million ways to authenticate the date and time. Hold up a newspaper. Haven't you seen spy movies before? This isn't hard? Ladies and gentlemen, the Chinese spy operation is very, very good. I spent time in China in my last line of work, and granted, we were not an intelligence operation, the Secret Services and Law enforcement security operation. But we worked with intelligence all the time because we have to get briefings on the country that we were in. I spent some time in China and I'm telling you, they are very good. They are not our friends. They are nuclear powered opponents. But they are very, very good at what they do. They followed me around a hotel. I was supposed to advance for the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Channel. They followed me. I've never seen a handler. Stick to me like Lou like this guy. Everywhere. Stairwells doors. I'm trying to advance the hotel. Hey, what's in this room? What's an Arab guys all over me? Like what? Like white on rice? Wouldn't.

"So they hate him. Believe me. They're not going to change that. They're not changing their message. No matter what. So what do they do? Change the messaging. Don't change the message. Don't say back to blue. Just change the defund the police message to re funding the people. What Jim Queue up. Cut five for me. This is MSNBC contributor. Uh, Britney Pack Nick Cunningham. Who understands pretty quickly. She's not stupid, very clever marketing that defund the police is a loser message. So listen about halfway to she flips the script, and now it's all about refunding. The people check this out. Defunding. The police is not just about taking money out of an institution that continues to prove and affected. It's also about re funding the people. It's about ensuring that the services that people need to ensure safe communities from the ground up are actually being funded. And resource to their full capacity. I think that there are a lot of police unions and GOP operatives that would like for us to believe that this recent crime wave has everything to do with this idea of defunding the police. But guess what? Stephanie? The police haven't been defunded. You actually look at the 50 largest cities, law enforcement spending as a share of the general expenditure in each of those cities actually rose slightly from 13.6% to 13.7% and many of the cities that have Talked about removing that money like Minneapolis and Seattle. They've actually paused or slowed how they were thinking about moving that money. So this rising crime is not. The fault of the movement is actually the fault of the police. And this has been our point all along. So this is I mean, Listen, folks, you Don't hate the player hate the game, right? You almost have to respect the level of lying that went on there. You're like, Wow, that is some That's some black

Democrats Battle Republican-Led Voting Curbs in Georgia
"Well we faced a democracy crisis when the president of the united states called georgia's secretary of state on january second and told him to quote find eleven thousand seven hundred and eighty votes. We survived that crisis because the georgia secretary of state refused to lie about the vote. Count and change the vote count so that donald trump could win the state of georgia. Instead of joe biden. Republicans in georgia do not want that to happen again and so they have removed the secretary of state from the position of authority in the aftermath of an election and they have moved georgia closer to the possibility of cheating the vote out next time. Donald trump calls an asks them to do that. And george is not the only state that is trying to make it for donald trump to call and tell them how many votes he needs to win an election.

Critical Race Theory: What Is It?
"Is critical Race theory? Yes. So critical Race theory began around the 19 seventies with the law professor Derrick Bell and a couple of other legal scholars trying to understand the ways. That race and American law intersected how history of slavery and segregation was sort of codified and continue to influence American law Today. Adam Harris is a staff writer at the Atlantic. His most recent article was titled The GOP S Critical Race Theory Obsession, Harris says. One of the first instances we started to see critical race theory being used as a political bludgeon was in the early 19 nineties, President Bill Clinton nominated Atlantic near to the Justice Department. She was a legal scholar who done a lot of work and voting rights and conservatives effectively used her previous work in voting rights to sort of tag her as someone who was arguing for racial quotas in voting for the amount of seats that people should hold on city councils. They also tagged her as championing a radical school of thought. Called Critical Race Theory. Amid mounting pressure from conservatives, President Clinton has withdrawn his nomination of Lani Guinier to head up the Justice Department's civil rights division, claiming veneers writings lent themselves to views that he could not embrace the president cut her loose rather than fight a divisive battle on Capitol Hill. From there you have A kind of dormant period. It's not really until after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin, the Jesse Jackson like race profiteer race grievance industry says everything's about race. America's a racist nation. You see a mention of critical race theory after a video surfaces of President Barack Obama hugging Derek Bell in 1990, you know When he was a law student at Harvard Law. The president is actually kind of aligning himself here with a well known campus radical. There is a conservative back last thing that he believes in this radical critical race theory. And then they're a kind of a couple of mentions up until 2020 shortly after George Floyd is murdered, You start to see a

It matters everything to liberals, and she tries to put him in a spot in corner and but she hasn't realized Byron Donald's a lot smarter than her. Check this out. You have defended President Trump. You think that your defense of a person that said things like that might be incongruent with the mission of the CBC? First of all whatever the president said in the past has nothing to do with this discussion at all. I think Well, you defend you've defended you've defended. Don't cut me off. I didn't have not cut you off in his interview, Please do not do that to me. Thank you As a black man in America. I'm allowed to have my own thoughts on who I choose to support who I choose not to support. I think that it's important whether you're talking about the Congressional Black Caucus or the Florida State Legislative Black Caucus or the National Caucus of State black legislators organizations. I have been a part of in the past. My support of President Trump has been consistent, but at the same time I've had the ability to advocate for issues, ideas proposals. And funding that have helped the black community in my state. You're talking to somebody who my first three years in college was at Florida A and M and Hbcu. So whether my support my support for President Trump. Whether it's for or against is irrelevant. That has nothing to do with this discussion. This is whether the ideology of somebody who is conservative is welcome in the Congressional Black Caucus. It's really that simple and so to bring up President Trump to try to make this about him does not matter. It's irrelevant. It has nothing to do with the situation in hand. Yes, Yes. Hold on for the fox nation. Years. This is standing. Jim. If I'm off to my concern, yes Stand to go. Byron Donald's spectacular Nice job. I'm here alone in the studio.

"gop" Discussed on The Michael Knowles Show
"Liz cheney man. That lady is a representative of the very desiccated. Shallow ridiculous liberal wing of the party. That for i don't know the past twenty thirty years or so but has really fallen out of favor especially in beginning in two thousand sixteen and certainly through twenty twenty liz. Cheney was one of the only people on the republican side to vote to impeach president trump. even though she's in house republican leadership kevin mccarthy. Who was the republican leader in. The house has finally come out and said you know this list cheney lady. She's really making things tough. Mccarthy made a good point he said there is a responsibility. if you're going to be in leadership leaders eat last and when leaders tried to go out and not work as one team. It creates difficulties when he says leaders eat last is referring to a buffet. Line go out there and you gotta make sure all your guys are fed. I you gotta make sure you're taking care of all the people in your team but liz. Cheney doesn't do that. Because liz cheney is not really a republican and and what i mean by that i'm not just think she's a rhino this this very often overused line. What i'm saying is she doesn't care at all about the party obviously not. She didn't vote for the republican for president. I don't think she didn't twenty sixteen. She certainly didn't in twenty twenty then. She voted to impeach him. Liz cheney represents her wing of the democratic party. Call it the neo cons. That's the term usually applied to it. Meaning people who are very very much supportive of adventurism abroad american empire abroad but don't particularly care for conservative priorities at home. That group of people made up one third of the reagan coalition. You had the war hawk. Former democrat types in the reagan coalition. then you add the economic libertarians. And then you had the traditional conservatives and the religious right in there as well and for the past thirty years or so. After the cold war wouldn't this coalition has been trying to hobble along the traditional conservatives. They always cave. The religious right always caves we go along we get in line. We go along with. Say the the libertarian. Sometimes cave to particularly on foreign policy but whatever we go along we get along we go we go with the nominee and then that third group those war hawk ex-liberal neo-con whatever words. You want to use. They don't go along. The they saw candidate that they don't like namely donald trump. they're out they become never trump they vote for some egg mcmuffin candidate they in twenty twenty vote for joe biden many of them. Well then you can't be part of the coalition you can't a political coalition doesn't work that way if two constituent parts of it always give up everything for the team and then the third part the minute they don't get their way they don't go along with it then you're just not on the team. And that's the issue with liz cheney here i suspect actually the reason cheney's talking about running. Twenty twenty. four is because she knows that her chances of surviving a primary are very very low for her congressional race so she is trying to pretend like she's going to run for something else. No that isn't going to happen. Liz cheney is the past of the gop raises this question if she's the past than what is the future. What is the future of the gop and we have all. Everyone has a different sorts of answers. I've got a very basic answer. That i think is the bare minimum if the gop is to have a future if the gop is going to survive the gop needs to be the party of doing things doing things for a long time. The i know this sounds very basic. But it's something that the republican party. I think needs to here for a very long time. The gop predicated its entire identity on not doing things they took this sort of. Pseudo quasi libertarian language of you know if the government that governs best governs. Least you know the governor anytime. The government does anything. It's a taxation is theft. Whatever all these kinds of slogans the minute the government passes any laws overregulation. We gotta get rid of that. We got to cut taxes. We gotta do less and less and less. now i never was particularly coherent. Certainly isn't coherent right now. Going up against the liberal establishment that controls everything the gop vision. That will have a future. If it is to have a future is gop that does things give you an example. The montana legislature yesterday passed a bill prohibiting employers from requiring their employees to get the covid vaccine condition of employment. This is a a regulation that will be passed to create a new requirement for businesses to impede what businesses want to do this big government. If ever i saw it. And i love it. I'm really glad that the government is going in we the people or they the people of montana through their elected representatives using the government to stop businesses from doing what the business is want to do to protect the rights and liberties and traditional way of life. Of montana's that's good. That's i know. Some people who are used to the libertarian language. they're going to say I dunno regulation. i'm business. That tells them they can't do what they wanna do. That's a good thing. More regulation in this case means more freedom. More regulation in this case.

"Who liked the racial populism and the phobic populism to i don't necessarily give economic populism per se that much credit for trump's success so spinning this forward to some extent after two thousand twelve. The republican party had this famous postmortem. Wear basically the quote was that voters have colored. Don't think that the party likes them or wants them. In the country that going forward the republican party had to be more to voters caller. That was not really the strategy that president trump took although he may have been more successful at least in two thousand twenty where the voters of color then mitt romney ever was. He's taking the republican party down a different path. It's still a path where they have a minority of voters at least right now and even in two thousand sixteen but again the national popular vote doesn't matter what could the republican party due to give itself a better chance of winning majority to me. It's like you a racist comments fewer medicaid. It's not the gated. But i don't know that that's where the party is right now and i don't i don't know that that kinda voice would win the primary but i do think i'm not sure. What ron santa's economic agenda is but i think that if he's not as focused on the sort of medicaid cuts in that part of this austerity part. That would probably help. I don't think it's hard to imagine a republican. Winning a majority of the voting is harder. imagine a republican who can win the majority of votes winning. The primary of the question is becoming even have to run for president on fox news conservativism. The yes you're in trouble. If you can run something else you could probably make california convention. Even as long as you don't have to run on fox news republicanism but i don't know how you change. 'cause i mean there are forty seven percent on fox news republicanism so i don't know why you would annoy your base to go for fifty one percents of things that they don't like that much. It's kinda funny. That like gale. You asked the question about what can the gop due to win a majority. And like both terry. And i kind of had a pregnant pause because it seems like it's not even like really up for consideration writers care too that yeah they don't really need to. I suppose right. If joe biden has a really suffers term than parties can win broad anti incumbent majorities at times again. it's hard to point to any single individual. Republican is being here. She is the model of what this would look like. You know maybe nikki haley. Your are some buddy like that. Potentially but like i think republicans think kind of okay. Well what if you have someone who is two thirds of the way to trump but a little bit more presentable. I kind of wonder if it might need to be reverse right. Probably his two thirds of the way toward being.

"Have an impact on turnout. And in addition to just that suggestion from lynnwood the apparent civil war going on right now between republicans who want georgia republicans to do more to try to overturn the election and not state and georgia republicans. Who are saying no. I don't think so. This is an interesting story. That trump in republicans are really trashing. The secretary of state a lot because he's been very emphatic. That trump laws to these republican too. So there is a republican divide in the state but this is like a hugely important election. If you're a republican voter your choices to stay home and potentially give joe biden and kamala harris a trifecta. I doubt you're going to do that. I mean look. These races are so close. That i guess if maybe fifteen thousand people. Lynn woods words. That's enough so i wouldn't dismiss it 'cause the race close but i tend to think these things are going to be much less important than what the four candidates are i know. Trump's always a factor. I think this is like it is an important race where people's partisanship in sort of their leanings. Much worse than any sort of like intraparty fights that probably are more reticent with the media and leads then with regular votes. yeah. I don't know. I mean little things can matter. It was close in november. And it's close in the polling so if you have like this if if the runoffs by one point then lynnwood will not be a very popular man among republicans. Don't think well some other context here. Is that president. Trump has been saying for five years. American elections are rigged and there was record. Republican turn out in november so it seems like even if that is one of the messages. It doesn't necessarily dissuade people from voting again. You mentioned small numbers. Do we know what the small numbers of people may be from the polling who believed that the elections are truly rigged Vote actually might not matter versus just taking the partisan position of. Oh yeah while. I wanna trump to win. So i'm just gonna say like yes. Trump should have one end. The election was right. I mean i don't quite know how you would see that in the polling because these people who wouldn't turn out see i mean there is some polling suggests that turnout will be worse the gop in the runoff than in the regular election which could mean a few things it could be this thing about..

"About the georgia runoff elections and also some of the challenges facing the gop electorally. In comparison to the conversation we had last week about the challenges facing the democratic party. So georgia i when it comes to the runoff elections there according to our averages jon ossoff and david purdue are essentially tied. I think there's separated by a third of a point. Raphael warnock is leading. Kelly left floor by two points but again especially at this point with limited polling. People should certainly view that as a tie. We're leading this off talking about polling averages in the wake of election that rightly or wrongly perhaps dissuaded people from paying attention to the polls they of course underestimated republicans in november in some states more than other states. Do we see any reason to second. Guess the polling at this point in time in the georgia runoff elections with a couple of things. Here number. one it's still kind of early in this runoff. We have almost a month to go so and sometimes races gravitate toward the fundamentals only late in the race and so it's a little early to be back said on the polling is inherently hard to believe. These races are close. It shouldn't be really. We had a general election just a month ago and that was very close in georgia both for the presidency which by one in the senate races you would ordinarily expect that in a mid term type environment that there's a backlash against the incumbent party except biden hasn't become president yet and trump is trying to make you forget that biden won the election and we'll become president and so that might be short-circuiting some of the normal processes right. You're not having checks and balances argument that you might. You have in leffler and purdue to fairly problematic candidates leffler ran very far to right in the first stage of this. She hasn't appointed elected incumbent. Appointed incumbents tend to not carry the protections irregular incumbents. Meanwhile as well as left there have both been an adhesive term implicated. It's made me too strong. But like their questions about a lot of stock trades. They have made while members of the us senate and whether those are above board or not. So it's not the perfect circumstances for the gop and georgia's increasingly purple. I suppose to bed still probably bet on republicans especially in that leffler race. It wouldn't completely shock me given how close if you had a one.

"This morning, we talked about key congressional races to watch on election day. One aspect that both parties have been paying attention to is diversity Democrats and Republicans are working to increase diversity in their ranks, but it's been a tougher challenge for the GOP joining me now to talk more about their efforts is wall. Street. Journal. Congressional reporter Natalie Andrews Hi. Natalie. Thanks for being here. Thank you. So. Not only what can you tell us about the Republican Party's efforts to diversify its ranks in twenty eight? After the Midterm Elections Republicans in the house were criticized for a low amount of women and people of Color in the house. The numbers dropped because some people ascended to higher office and because there were retirements but it stood in stark contrast to the Democrats who had increased diversity, a number of women in their ranks and so house minority leader Kevin. McCarthy made this a priority to make sure he was supporting women and people of Color in races, and this was also something he was that was done after other lawmakers in the conference pushed him to do. So what have been some of the challenges for the GOP in becoming more diverse? The platform of the Republican Party has not always reached out specifically to black people and Democrats have historically represented majority minority districts and have focused on issues that impact minorities we have the congressional black caucus is entirely democratic right now, and they have an agenda that they say appeals to black people in America And we've seen that at times the president has made comments that do not win over black voters. He has made comments that members of his own party have called racially charged or even racist, which has been a problem with Republicans as they try to increase their ranks. So. What can you tell us about this year's GOP candidates for the house. In the house, the Republicans are set to lose. Their soul black. Republican lawmaker and that is will heard and so after Mr heard announced his retirement, a lot of is went to. Own, my goodness, they're losing their one black man in their caucus in. So we sent out to look at how they're recruiting efforts had gone to diversify, and they are set to have at least one black man come to Congress next year that would be Byron donalds in he is running in a safe Republican district in. Florida it's in the Naples area. He's been a state lawmaker for the past four years and has been involved in local tea party groups and various Republican groups for. About a decade. So that is really the one lawmaker who looks like he's coming to the house next year, and then there's a few competitive races such as in Utah, Burgess Owens is challenging Ben McAdams and in Texas in the Houston suburbs Wesley Hunt is running against congressman lizzy Fletcher in Texas. How does that compare to what we're seeing among? Democrats, in the House, this election Democrats are set to increase their diversity. We've seen a few people of Color winning primaries or win in safe districts. So. We do expect their numbers to grow but this is something that Democrats have placed a priority on and they do tend to speak to minority groups specifically, whereas Republicans often talk about how they don't want to be focused on so-called identity politics and reach out to groups specifically instead they want their policies such as economic policies to. Ring true to voters and have them vote and that's one thing that when I talked to Byron donalds he spoke about that. He doesn't want to be the mold of what a black person is in politics. He's a conservative he talks about criminal justice reform. He introduced himself to voters by calling himself a strong trump supporting gun owning liberty loving pro-life, politically incorrect black man and those are the Republicans that we're seeing running for Congress this year. How about compared to what we're seeing in the? Senate in the Senate, there is one block Republican Tim Scott and two block Democrats Comma Harris and Cory Booker. There are a few black candidates who are Republican, who are challenging Democrats and the one that we're watching very closely is John James and Michigan that become competitive if it swings his way, he'll join tim. Scott. In the Republican Conference Natalie, you mentioned the midterms in two thousand eighteen which resulted in a record number of women being elected to Congress overall. How is Congress doing in terms of diversifying representation? When you look at the numbers, Congress is still white in as a majority. There are fifty three blockhouse lawmakers including the delegates fifty, two of those are Democrats. So those numbers are slowly increasing and when you incorporate women, LGBT members, people of Color Democrats will say that half of their caucus belongs to one of those diverse groups. But that still means that trunk of the caucus is white men, which is obviously what's been members of Congress predominantly since the beginning of the country and on the Republican side, Kevin McCarthy worked. To increase diversity this year, they had a record number of candidates run for office who were black. It's just a lot of those candidates ran in districts that are safely democratic, and so there weren't as many that ran in districts that were winnable for Republicans and we do have these swings seats that we're watching, but overall the sixty four. So candidates that Republicans had enter the race a lot of those were in safe Democratic Seats Wall Street Journal Congressional reporter Natalie Andras Natalie. Thanks so much for being here..

We have a hard time with Nancy Pelosi she thinks she can influence the election. And I think they're hurting themselves by not doing it but the Republicans want to do it we WANNA do. Stimulus we want to help the airlines again because. Remember the president said everything's off I'm cancelling. All of the all of the negotiations until after the election if I'm elected, I'll get all kinds of stuff done. But then he changed his tune saying he wanted both sides to go big the back realizing perhaps the era of is ways ahead of an election. So there know they've tried to put these back on into the treasury secretary has offered a one point eight close to one point nine, trillion dollar by A. Compromise deal that he put on the table over the weekend with the speaker of the House. You want to go to the White House. What's the best way to work this out now? The White House it's one of the most dangerous places. In, the country she turned that down saying, Hey, look, there's no national plan for testing not enough money for testing tracing treatment. There is no standalone bill without a bigger bill, and so they're still at the negotiating table but I would tell you Brad. There are a lot of people that are saying including Mitch McConnell in the Senate. It doesn't look like this is a deal that's going to happen before McConnell. McConnell, it's like it's becoming clear. You can rush things through the Senate right now it's just not this. Legislation is harder he wants more of his Republicans signed on and they're not willing to go as high as two trillion dollars. The White House is signaling. They might go that high as two trillion, but you're going to lose almost all Senate Republicans. It's hard to see what the path forward would be toward a deal at this point. And if you want an example of just how important this is, you can look at Lindsey Graham, he was supposed to a debate with his Senate challenger. This weekend will refuse to get a covid tasks. He said he didn't need one but a lot of people suspected it's because he didn't want to get one because God forbid he tests positive he wouldn't be able to. Preside over these hearings his debate basically it's canceled. He's getting demolished in fundraising all of a sudden. It just shows you that the confirmation of Amy. CONYBEARE. It takes precedence among all else right now in the GOP Senate that even if it costs you your Senate race, that is clearly where the priority lies fascinating stuff we'll wait for today Trish in Washington.

"On W. GOP. It is only July. All kinds of things could happen between now and election Day. Still, it's probably safe to say there are at least three factors voters are weighing as they decide between President Trump and Joe Biden. The first, of course, is he's handling of the pandemic. The president's handling of covert 19 even as cases rise in many parts of the country, the second, maybe racial justice and a demand for major change in how people of color are treated in the U. S. And the third is this big story about Russian bounties being paid to Taliban fighters to kill America? Kans in Afghanistan. President Trump tells Fox business He doesn't believe the intelligence I think it's a hoax. I think it's a hoax by the newspapers and the Democrats. President was asked. What if it is true if it did happen? The Russians would hear about it, and anybody else would hear about it that was involved. Joining us live. John Harris, founding editor of Politico and John. Up Until now, we've heard from the president's handlers on this, including the National Security advisor. Now, Mr Trump is speaking out. What do you make of his reaction? Well, he's going to a familiar playbook, which is the same that serious allegations are hopes and hope That's enough to rally his side that they behind him. Ah, he's used that an impeachment use that basically with every important controversy that's come before He's never had one arrived with this terrible timing. As you point out on all three of those issues. He's really on the defensive. Let's hear what the president told Fox business about the pandemic. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear. I hope You still believe so disappear? Do Ideo? Yeah, sure, Some point. And I think we're gonna have a vaccine very soon, too so taking in account that that sound bite. Which of the three items do you think we'll have the most impact on the president's reelection isn't the pandemic and our major concerns about health and economy? I think it is because those clearly on turn trajectories are going to last all the way through the balance of the year. Whatever else comes into the news cycle, we know that the shutdown And the economic effects of that shut down Ah, and the continuation of the disease. We know almost to a certainty that those were goingto remained very much in the forefront. Of the news and they're correctly there might a frame this whole election year. Joe Biden's campaign has been described by some as less is Mohr. How do you think he's doing with the carefully chosen appearances and remarks? Well, I would agree with that lessons Mohr because ah, really, what he's doing with that strategy is keeping this weighs about President Trump and his record on and basically all the polling, including a politico morning console pull just today shows six out of 10 voters disapprove. Of President Trump's performance. 75% of the country thinks we're on the wrong track. So as long as Biden can make this keep the discussion about President Trump. Ah ah, he's in good shape. Of course, President Trump is trying Tio frame this as Ah. More of a choice between he and bind rather than a referendum on his own record.
