"Thank you for teaching us about two important cases, Graham Bikaner Tennessee the Garner the Grand Bikaner case says that the question is whether the officers actions are objectively reasonable and objective. Reasonableness will be judged as you said by the respected the officer at the scene. Not In hindsight it include questions like port whether the action is proportional. Necessary I'm not just authorized. Standard, at California, you said thinking of clarifying, and then you told us about the Tennessean. Garner case which I teach in criminal procedure. As you say, it's an incredibly. And it involves the fleeing felon, and the circumstances under which officers can use deadly force to stop a fleeing felon and Supreme Court in that case said that a police officer can use deadly force to prevent the escape of fleeing suspect, only if the officer has good faith belief that the suspect significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer will post both of those cases in their chat, bots and gentle. Joost tell us about. Your experiences with the Grand Connor case in Tennessee in Garner and your understanding of what the National Standard, the constitutional standards for excessive force are, and whether you think those you think those standards should be reformed courts legislatures. Well General Ellison has adequately Provided. A cliff notes on this two cases. and. The one to developing arguments we have. is qualified immunity. which shields not just officers, but public actors and the performance? Republic duties and it's judicially created doctrine I am. There's some thought that the Supreme Court may revisit that at some point. Nineteen cases seeking cert. This last term. The. None of the made it on to the shortlist decided. but I don't think that. Argument is over, but I'd like to go back to something that General Allison talked about. which is the minimum force necessary, and that is in fact in Ohio the standard that we trained to? but this little murky, and here's what we need to think. very carefully about this, because the question then becomes. What what are we talking about? If are we talking about a criminal action? And whether criminal prosecution of the officers should result, are we talking about a nine thousand, nine, hundred eighty three civil rights action, which is civil matter with a lower standard proof Are we simply talking about? Job Action and disciplined for violation of work rules policy because all of those present a different issue. And the devil, if you will is in the question of necessary, in whose judgment is necessary and the current case law, it is a reasonable officer kind of standard the. Challenge with. trying to make that the uniform standard as we can very quickly end up with people who are having to make. split-second decisions on the street without enough. Information without being able to see maybe what a surveillance camera blocked down the street from a different angle shows they've got what's in front of them, and they have to decide right now. Because their safety or the safety of other members of the public is in jeopardy. Are we going to dampen their ability to react to that crisis by for example exposing them to criminal prosecution by saying later after we've looked at all the body cam footage, and all the surveillance footage and talk to all the witnesses and gotten all the points of view out there that somebody with. The luxury of four hundred hours. That's about what our averages Ohio to. On a lethal use of force investigation. Four hundred hours of collection and the ability to sit in your air, conditioned office in a soft share and decide what was necessary. and I think that that is a very dangerous thing for us to put on the backs of the folks that are out there protecting us. So trained that. Yes, and that's why I think to back to our proposals that Governor D- I why I think the Reform proposals have licensure professional licensure of police with rules of conduct is so important because the right place for that level of review I think is at the licensing board not in a court of Criminal Law. Now let me stress that there are instances I've prosecuted police officers. For wrongdoing and my career rate now in Cuyahoga, county. I have a team that is working on. A variety of. Physical Abuse Cases of inmates by corrections officers. We had a horrible incident where the. Inmate was actually restrained in a restraint chair. They were strapped down and were be on another one with restrained inmate who One of the CEO's sprayed OC spray into her eyes while she was already strapped down clearly inappropriate use force. and. We're going after them, so I am not. I'm not one of these folks doesn't think there should be accountability. But we need to think very carefully about the dangers on the street and a life and death mission that our officers are on as we consider these questions. The questions you raised about reforming qualified immunity track those raised by the Ohio fraternal order, please who are on board with a lot of the reforms that you and governor Dwayne. Replacement say that will form of qualified. Immunity would have a negative impact on recruiting retention of qualified people from across the country General Ellison understanding the qualified immunity may not be at the center of the Floyd case Can you share your thoughts on? Its reform qualified immunity as General Yo. Said gives officials performing discretionary functions immunity from suit and muster up. The plaintiff can show the official violated clearly established statutory or constitutional rights, which a reasonable person would have known as generally Oh said Justice Thomas on the Supreme Court just. said the court should revisit that standard, even though it declined to do so so far. Do you, think the standard should be revisited in what effect that have on of law, enforcement and on these. Yes I think that the very. Strong production of the existing qualified immunity law creates moral hazard..

"I'm Jeffrey. Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center and welcome to we the people a weekly show of constitutional debate. The National Constitution. Center is a nonpartisan nonprofit chartered by Congress to increase awareness and understanding of the constitution among the American people last week Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Ohio attorney, General Dave Joost join me for a vigorous bipartisan conversation about the role of state attorneys general in addressing police reform protests and other constitutional challenges facing states today hope you enjoy. There are many insights and please check out our other America's townhall programs, which we run every week on our companion podcast live at the National Constitution Center. General Ellison, you are at the center of the most. Closely watched case involving the police in America today. Arising out of the tragedy! Mom George Floyd in Minnesota. You're limited in what you can say about that case, but you've had an extraordinary background as a representative from Minnesota in the US, House of Representatives, and as a civil rights attorney separate specializing in. Civil Rights in defense law tell us about how your background as a civil rights, attorney and representative has influenced your approach to the Floyd Kiss. My background I've got to go at least back to a man named Frank Martinez who. Is My grandfather. He was organizing black voters in the nineteen fifties in rural Louisiana. and. He would do fish fries. Community meeting show up at Church and try to convince people who have never had a chance to participate in democracy that they really did have every right to participate in democracy. They signed up a lot of people to vote. And some of those people were ordered off their farms. Some of them were threatened. Some of them were beating, and he was threatened and and and beaten himself, and even had we the my mom will tell stories about how they refused to sell him gasoline in the city of Nacogdoches. Because, he was what they said. Stirring up a fuss and he they burn across across the street from their house, and they called my family's home so much threatening to kill my grandfather that they sent my mom to a boarding school because they couldn't afford for her to be there if some tragic event happened. So my family, my mom I everybody they said look. We don't want you to grow up to be angry. We want you to up to have a sense of responsibility. And my mom, you know was a social worker. For many years. He did juvenile sex offender group. where the judge would send her cases, and if those kids made it through the program, they could leave it without a juvenile adjudication and she spent her life doing that. She worked on education. Reform lobbied the governor in Michigan where she moved and was able to do a lot of things that way so that's the conversation I grew up around. And my dad is a psychiatrist. He's ninety one years young now. And he's still is very active and interested in what's going on in the world and personally. It was I don't know if it was a foregone conclusion that I would do the work that I'm doing but I. Kind of felt that field. It's sort of something that I do quite naturally and have You know I I left I was in Congress and enjoyed being there I never got sick. Congress never said I'm done with Congress. I. Just thought that being a state attorney general was a better job and would put me in a position to be of greater used to my neighbors I bet you general. Joost agrees with me on that. that you know you can do a lot as attorney general. That It's just tougher to do as a member of Congress. Basically because you've got to work with you know four hundred thirty five other people in the house, hundred other people in the Senate. Is Turning General. If you feel that the law requirements that alarm met, you can act. And and so I was I got into the work. And I did it because I really feel that. The government our democratic government and I. Don't Mean Parties Partisan Small D. Democrat. Should should really be on the side of promoting the general welfare, protecting human rights of all make sure that people who have individual rights. should make sure the government leave people alone and whenever we do live in a society where the constitution requires that the government not impose upon people when it when it should not, and you know so these so these issues of civil rights human. Human Rights, civil liberties and policing are issues that I come to sort of very very naturally and just really honored to be able to talk about those things today with you General Yeltsin. Thank you for sharing that inspiring story in your remarkable background as lawyer representative wonderful to hear about Your Dad Ninety one year old psychiatrist. My Dad is ninety three and he's also have psychiatrists different. We've got we've got them. General Joost you also have a really interesting background as county auditor, and as a journalist as well. I'm I tell us what the county auditor does, and then tell us whether your background is a journalist in any way influenced your approach to your job. And, then give us a sense of what the state of the debate about the polices in Ohio. Thank you. I was A. Newspaper Reporter for the Columbus Citizen Journal. which was the scripts Howard paper. And the the motto was quote from E W scripps her the chain. Was Give Light, and the people will find their own way, and that really is the D'Amato kind of light on my career path. probably still be a newspaper reporter if My paper hadn't gone out of business in nineteen, eighty five, but I've always been about finding the facts finding what is objectively true in fighting for justice so my time as a newspaper reporter later as an attorney in private practice and yes I. Did criminal defense work for a while early on my career. Through my time in public service as county auditor, which is basically the fiscal officer for the government in Ohio County government in Ohio through my years, prosecuting attorney and State Service It's always been about holding power accountable inch shack. And doing what's right finding the truth, and then fighting for what's just? My Dad is not a psychiatrist. Although. He's still with us a very proud of him. grew up in a family with six kids he got. Promoted to. From Columbus to Detroit didn't WanNa go with his company, so he quit and started his own company now one truck, one man, and built it over thirty five years to successful business that employed more than three hundred people around the state of Ohio I learned a lot about integrity and and honor and hard work watching my dead built. That company and I'm honored today to be Attorney General and I agree with you. General Allison Being Attorney General. gives one far greater reach to do justice and to seek common good that. Being a single congress person, although I value and honor their work This is immensely rewarding. That's a remarkable statement that both of made and friends and the audience. Just let positive say how significant is that? These these public officials a former. Representative says that being stated journalists more significant in terms of the impact you commit, and that's now order explorer, as we dig into these two central questions of de-fund fund, the police, and also the standards of excessive force officers.

"Torn apart Minneapolis and saint all these cities argument, the same for years possibly decades to come and solve because the top law enforcement official in the top league officer in the state didn't do his job did nothing so I think he has a lot to answer for. You came close within three points last time. It's Doug wardlow. He ran for for The Attorney General Job in the great state of Minnesota back in two thousand eighteen. So, is that something you're thinking about again i? Mean we see on the ballot the next time in maybe those three points will shift. Absolutely definitely, think about it and exploring that right now, strongly considering it especially in light of recent events than seeing what a dismal failure else in is attorney general. We need strong leadership of the state, so I'm looking at that right now. I'm leaning toward it and. Haven't been announced yet. Okay? Well I I appreciate you. You tell us that you're considering it strongly. I think it's a good thing to consider a lot of people supported you and I think those who didn't go. Vote probably would now knowing what we have in that office. Having said that what is the job of the attorney? General to work with the mayor and the governor who both I think have been very weak through. This is well. What is what is that office job to matter who's in the office as far as polling, the laws and bringing back some semblance of peace to the city. Well, they torney general is actually on the Executive Council along with the governor, and he should have been there consulting with the governor, and making sure that things were happening to ensure that law and order was in place. He should have been working with the mayors and. It's incredible. It was incredible to watch magic FRY. pull the police out of the third precinct in wash. That thing burned to the ground in Minneapolis. What are say order is more important than our lives I. Mean I'm not sure what he meant by that, but you've got heavily. Armed Police officers funded by by the tax payers there to serve and protect that he literally said. And let them have the building. Unbelievable know he's never works and it didn't work. They're just emboldened. The protesters it should be surprising to anyone that that's what happened. A Keith Ellison should have been pushing against that decision should have been in contact with the mayor and talking to the police chief and to police a leadership and making sure that that didn't happen. You should've been working with them and you know where. Where it was Ki- thousand eighteen months ago over the last eighteen months. Keith Ellison has been same. There are problems with the police, but if he knows about these problems, why hasn't been providing support and training through his office? To Minneapolis police and two other police department was office is supposed to be doing to make sure that nothing like this could ever happen. Instead is going around. Perpetrate perpetuating an anti police narrative, but actually doing nothing about it, and not helping the situation at all just a complete failure leadership, and by the way as the attorney general. He's protected by police. It's so it's section a a a completely hypocritical thing for him to to to do in his actions. When he knows that he saved because he's getting protection from the people that he's complaining about It's Doug wardlow ran for attorney general. Two, thousand eighteen, considering again for next time it'd be twenty twenty two right. That's cricket and twenty twenty two. Okay, so let me ask you this. The president yesterday came out as an ally a peaceful protests. He supports it. That's the First Amendment right. He said those were bring bringing violence and looting and rioting will be stopped if the governor's don't do it and again he say listen state supposed to do this, but if they don't going to step in and I'm going to help if you're the attorney general, would you welcome at? This point absolutely the attorney general should welcome that into the governor refuses to do his job and governor. Tim Lawson, so it has to do his job along with Attorney General Ellison. They've done absolutely nothing for four days of terrible lawlessness, unprecedented violence destruction in Minneapolis and Saint. Paul and cities that are are wonderful, top-class cities that are now in large part destroyed in in many portions. They did nothing. Nothing absolutely nothing, and so I would hope that the president would follow through on that, and and bring in the necessary troops restore law and order in states in places where the states aren't willing to do it. Of course, we need to let states lead. This is federalism, but I would encourage presents do that as attorney. General I would I would hope that Keith Ellison would want to do. Do that I don't expect that he does want that at all. Just seems very much content to encourage the violence and really do nothing to stop it. That's always the argument when it comes to federalism federalism for those who don't know, it sounds like it's the federal government taking over. It's not federalism means that states have right, and they should take care of their own first, but you've got to Minneapolis. Minneapolis, as you said a world class city where residents are scared to death, shopowners or scared to death, a police told not to do their jobs, and the president is in Washington watching this unfold, and he is the leader of the country needs at some point to say hey, if they're not gonNA, step up for the residents. I'm going to have to I. mean that's really the bottom line, right? It's absolutely right. I mean it's heart wrenching to see that the cities were the people that are most in need live. Those cities in those neighborhoods are the ones that are being destroyed by the violent rioters and looters. It's just terrible and if I got job of government is to keep order in to protect people and keep Belsen and Tim laws or governor here have completely failed that so seeing that president trump should rightfully stepien I think it's under the eight hundred seven insurrection act. Act that he can deploy troops in times of insurrection and uprising right as uprising, but in times of civil strife, essentially the into different parts of the United, states he should do that and I hope he does do that. If necessary, I hope not necessarily, but at this point there's quite a bit of lawlessness violence occurring all over the United States and Puerto Remember that all that could been stopped. If Keith Ellison here in Minnesota Governor Tim, walls had done their jobs, but what? It I I'm with you. And also from what I'm told. Jacob fry the mayor, who I'm not a big fan of a day, and a half two days in ask for the National Guard, and then walls pause for a couple more days before saying we are fully mobilizing the national guard. Why would you hesitate when you're watching? Burned to the ground, it doesn't make any sense as an attorney general. Can you move in at all and push the governor's hand? Can you push the mayor's hand? But what can you do as the top law enforcement officer to bring peace of anything is that? Does that role at all? All need agee's officer not. Necessarily the governor is the chief commanding of the of the National Guard and, but deter general is there is the top legal enforcement officer. He can put a lot of pressure on the governor to do the right thing, and he can talk the a lot of pressure on them to do the right thing. He can make sure that he stating that rioters and looters are going to be charged and prosecuted. You can find investigate and find the folks that are the ringleaders and bring them in and make examples. Them could have done all of those things he didn't. He did none of those things. How do you feel about the order to to use a soft hand? Those using a soft hand, well of course peaceful protests. We want those encouraged. Absolutely fame is really a shame that. Little week ago, there was a time when the whole country was unified and unified around the idea that we would not let what happened to George. Floyd happen to anybody else, but then because of the response of leaders here in Minnesota including Keith Ellison. That moment was lost, and now cities are engulfed in violence. It was really shame. The fact is I. I brought this out of social media lot today. We've all agreed about what happened to George. Floyd, everybody on any political side agreed that it was agreed it was disgusting was horrible and this Guy Needs..

"Sure you and your cameraman are safe. Take the precautions that you need to try to keep the life shot up at least on that crowd so we can see what is happening and stay with us while you got to your thoughts for a moment i WanNa bring in Rashad Robinson. He's a civil rights leader and president of Color of change. Mr Robinson. It's good to have you with us so obviously a developing situation. Here some folks. Perhaps we're hoping that tonight. Maybe a little bit different certainly following that news conference. It's still early in the night but as you heard there from my correspondent Shaquille Brewster on the ground Protests are still taking place. You can still see the images of some of those demonstrators throwing objects at the police as they make their way into the crowd. This is certainly not the start of a peaceful situation. Yeah I mean I think what what you're seeing is a community that has had absolute enough. I mean if you or I were on video with our knee on someone and pushing life out of them. There would be charges. There'll be owed arrest. They would be Investigation while after we were arrested but we would not be able to be walking on the street right now and not living our life while while folks were figuring out whether or not they were charges district attorney offices around the country including the one ahead of pin county have a terrible record of holding police accountable and what has happened is an as a result of that. It's created a whole set of lack of trust between community and police forces. So yes we need arrest. Yes we need convictions. And I totally understand would attorney. General Ellison was saying but there is an ongoing way there a different set of rules for police than everyone else. And that's a result communities have been treated like enemy combatants have not been heard had not been recognized and people are pushing. Our people are pushing back. We need justice in this situation. We need police to be held accountable and we also need long-term systemic systemic change. Let's get to the systemic change. In a moment I wanna I also your reaction to the big development at the top of the hour and that was debriefing from both the US Attorney's office the FBI. The county attorney there as well as members of state law enforcement the believe. What is your reaction to that briefing? And the fact that as of yet as of now five forty. Pm No charges have been brought against any of the officers who are involved in the killing of George Floyd unfortunately this becomes. This becomes the story. That so much of us are used to for being on the in Ferguson. Being on the ground in Baltimore you start to see all of the ways in which the story starts to develop how forces align to create doubt so doubt. Police are defended by their police. Union by other forces that create this idea that the police had a right or that. The Standard is too high to hold them accountable. And then what ends up happening is that we continue to give police the ability to kill with impunity without any consequences whatsoever. And so what? I was very disappointed about that. They had a press conference without without any press without any news without any new updates are new details on. Actually what was happening. You had the Hennepin County district attorney talk about what happened in Baltimore but not talk about sort of the history of police being let off a history of police not being held accountable even in his jurisdiction and in the one case where he did sort of reference which was a black police officer that killed a white woman which somehow sort of magically able to find a conviction for but time and time again when the victim is black and the police officers are not we find all sorts of ways in which justice is not served over a million people have now signed the color of change petition demanding action not just in terms of arrests and convictions but also the fight for a long term change because at the end of the day these this is not a new issue in in whether it's in Minneapolis or whether it's in communities around the country where even when we have video even when we have sort of detailed evidence of police doing things that are out of bounds. We do not get the results and in this situation have to recognize that the police chief moved much quicker than what we've seen all around the country. The police chief saw that video and like they needed to be fired. And now we're wondering. Why did the police chief know that these folks do you need to be fired? Why did all of see excessive force on that video at the very least? The police officers have not been held accountable in any way the other big development today as I was talking to correspond. Our correspondent Shaquille Brewster. There was the decision by the governor to deploy the National Guard. Give me your reaction to that decision as you watch this situation unfold. Is that likely to calm the situation since there seems to be so much anger directed towards the police. Or is this an escalation? I absolutely this is escalation. You know I can't think of moments where the National Guard coming in has has calmed people's nerves down on people one a level of transparency that they haven't had people had a belief that the system will not work in the reason why people have a belief that the system won't work without pressure without pushing without demand is because the system hasn't worked time and time again and so you know having trump's justice department come to Minnesota and try to tell people to remain calm we're working. There's nothing to see here. You know you have to expect us to be crazy to simply be silent and not and believe that folks that time and time again. Have failed to hold police accountable. A Justice Department that has led by a president who has basically openly as just a couple of years ago joked with police. Officers about roughing. Up Suspects has a Justice Department. Which has Moved BACK ON CONSENT DECREES. That whole police departments accountable. There are so many ways in which accountability is important. When when we've seen police officers get fired. In some of these cases we've seen them actually get rehired and other places. The police officer that killed twelve year old Tamir Rice in Ohio ends up getting rehired someplace else. And the decks of the titanic getting shifted in terms of the chairs and so we are tired and we need real action and we also need people of all races and backgrounds to recognize that they have a fight here too that we need people to suck. I just wanted to give. I WANNA give a quick update to our viewers who are watching this scene. Play out we saw police about ten minutes ago. A convoy of police cars make their way into that crowd and as they did they were pelted with objects by some of those demonstrators. That were there..

"Human right discrimination violates human rights yeah of course we have seen so much from the trump administration's department of health and Human Services initially proposing the rule that would expand the ability of businesses and individuals to refuse to provide necessary healthcare on the basis of their religious beliefs or moral convictions this flight has been going on for a long time and it seems to be closing and coming to a head do you agree. you know what I don't know if it's coming to a head of which is spreading I mean this idea that someone's freedom of expression or their religious preferences should overcome the human and civil rights of other people is idea we see the to sort of proliferating all over the place. you your your listeners may be familiar with the case call citizens United yes is it which is the case and said that corporations can give our people and getting and have the the first amendment free expression writes like regular people do. that's based on freedom of expression there's another case called the the Janice case which undermine the rights of public employee unions that case is also about you know quote unquote freedom of expression and now you know we've seen you know other cases involving some people's freedom of expression you know being you was to deny people typically LGBTQ people access to public accommodations by and of course you know we do know the hobby lobby case this has to do with you know with people's religious for the religious preferences of the company owner not the not the workers and we keep seeing this emerged again and again and again and what it really is is is I think it's it's a threat to the bait the civil rights law that that we've seen since the nineteen fifties and sixties distance said that tend to repeal the human rights but to say that my right to freedom of expression. or freedom our free exercise of my religion allows me to deny service to people to turn people away and these are the services and products that are offered to the public you know so I'm quite concerned about the movement I don't know if it's coming to a close or if it's expanded I can tell you that groups like the alliance for defending freedom is a law firm dedicated to push in this idea in their active all over the country and you look up in here there they are always trying to. how to tell people you know that that date of birth the freedom of expression rice a religious rights of some should over overcome the US civil rights of others. and and like we usually just know that this group the allies for defending freedom is active in in many of these cases and the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated them a hate group which is essentially the moral equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan or neo **** but these guys are lawyers. and and they run around trying to roll back the heat the civil rights movement. well just incredible so we have about two minutes left and I have to talk to you about your

security and affected women pay more for just about everything whether it's deodorant whether it's you know it's it's historically it's been health care in and and on average women don't get paid as much as men do we have some new authority under the the the Minnesota law as the attorney general's office to protect the rights of women workers and employees and so we're doing that we also you know we talk about weight stepped on the show we talk about how workers so should get every single penny that they've been promised by their employer and then we talk about how employers often are like Hey

"Also joining us to join the conversation tonight. Our Representative Kelly Morrison who just happens to be a physician as well as Representative John lash, and I welcome all three of you to show. How are you? Great really appreciate it prescription drug prices have been a problem for decades. Right. I mean, it it seems like it's been getting worse not better. So where do you even begin a Representative Morrison? You are a physician let's just talk about that. It's been around for so long. If seems impossible to get anything done. It has been a problem for a long time and good evening. Thanks for having me on tonight. The problem is it's accelerating. And as we work to get a hold of the high cost of healthcare in Minnesota were really looking at drug prices as one of the big culprits. It's taking twenty percent of healthcare dollars. And it's exceeding the rate of inflation. We're studying more drugs now than we are an inpatient hospital care. So I commend attorney general Ellison's for taking this on as one of his priorities. It's really important Nicole Smith, hold welcome to C C O M A you, of course, have had to give the greatest the greatest the greatest and in very sad is what happened with your brother with your son to know that that he tried so hard to get the medication and was actually trying to make it work, and it just didn't work for him. So you hear about this actually come into fruition? A drug task force. Do you have faith that this can really make a difference? I think it's a start. I think that. You know, the the more initiatives that we have going on out there trying to to take back some sort of control over the pharmaceutical companies. I think the more the better. It's the way to bring about more legislation. That's great. If it's a way to bring to light the struggles and the issues that everyday people are facing with affordability. Wonderful. We need people to get up and share stories, then to shed light on this issue. And of course, shedding light Representative Lesch, it it really takes a lot of time. I mean, you you guys have to all get together meeting, and you have to agree that you have to start talking about the laws and changing the laws, and adding this and taking away that this could be a long process and we've already has taken decades. I even get to where we are today. Now. That's right. And and I will tell you what Nicole just said, I heard him Assad revolts skepticism as to whether or not this will work and for good reason. When anytime you talk about proposing regulation on an industry as wealthy as pharma. You're gonna have pushback Wabe has come out of the woodwork like clowns. I one of those cars at the circus near large chicks at the same time. Absolutely. This is exactly what we have an attorney general for. Okay. When he initiates litigation based upon the results of a task force. You can get Justice in ways that just as you talked about are sometimes difficult to get the legislative process, but we're doing two pronged approach on this right right now legislation and litigation Torney general Ellison's leading that. And I'm confident we will see some results results is what you're looking for a Nicole just like the rest of us. And I'm wondering, what do you think this task force once it's all put together? I think it's going to be about fifteen members. Is that correct? Yeah. That sounds about right, right? What do you hope that they will address first and foremost, I think first and foremost, we need to address the transparency issue right now. Yeah. Pharmaceutical companies are pointing their finger at PBS and PBS I pointing their finger at insurance companies insurance companies are pointing their finger at manufacturing. So it's a vicious cycle. Or we don't know details. And it's about time that there are some. Legislation in place that demands transparency. So we know exactly who all of that actors are in the situation. Yeah. We've been trying to get that transparency for a long time Representative Morrison, of course, you are a doctor. This is very complicated. It's a complicated problem. It has always been complicated and has gotten more complicated in the last decade about two years ago. Newsweek, tried to answer the question, how do prescription drugs get their prices. Now, here's a part of this very complicated answer if I read a little bit it says purchasing prescription drugs is different from other kinds of purchasing when you buy a car. You are the decision maker. You are the customer you choose what car you want in his up to you. Whether or not you want to pay whatever it cost, you go to a dealership, and you buy a car with pharmaceuticals the customer, the patient is rarely the decision maker, usually the physician makes the decisions and the patient doesn't pay the cost for either. The patients aren't usually. In writing the check there may be a co pay or co insurance, but the majority of the cost is usually covered by the insurer is that correct? You know, you're absolutely right that that it is complicated colors. Right. That everyone is passing the buck on this. But the bottom line is the drug manufacturers are the ones who are ultimately responsible for the high drug prices that were experiencing. I'm introducing a Bill called the prescription drug pricing transparency app that tries to come at this by forcing the pharmaceutical companies to explain their pricing. So for new drugs new, we acquire drugs and drugs that increase at a certain percentage over twelve and twenty four month periods. We're going to require them to report the health Commissioner exactly all all of the indicators behind that. How did they come to that price? What was their profit? We wanna know all of the information if they don't comply they'll be faced with up to a ten thousand dollar a day fine. So I think that this will be a step. It's bipartisan legislation as well. So I think it has a really great chance of passing through. Both the house and the Senate and get signed by the governor. And I think it's a step toward holding them accountable. Hopefully, creating a little bit of a a public outcry when we get to learn what the real facts are about how much money is behind this. And it's not exactly like buying a car because we as patients the medicines. We don't have to buy a car we have to buy these medicines were in an impossible position as patience, and this has gotta stop Representative lash. Okay. So here's the deal. You just heard what what the doctor just said. And you also heard what Nicole said, and so the big question is why task force and will the task force be able to be efficient at helping, you know, the whether it's a transparent law that that she's working on or whether it's making sure that they come up with some type of were verbiage that we can introduce to the legislators to say. Let's work on this one thing and get this done. Well, the task force is important that that attorney general Ellison formulated because ultimately live in a Republic and the pricing structure as described by represented Morrison and lamented by Nicole is not the product of public decision making public choice. These this is this is the result of big pharma over decades of getting legislation passed to their benefit in congress and capitals across the country. So when you have publican for a task force clearly saying, listen, here's what the problem is. Here's why they're doing that the price gouging and increasing prices unreasonably that gives folks like attorney general Allison. Legislators like me, and Dr Morrison the ability to have that backing in committee to push back against high priced high paid lobbyists who will say, oh, you can't do this. And no one knows why the prices are so high and really wanted to be low to it calls them out on that and says no we need to fix it now. And I think passwords can do that more effectively. It takes a lot of time to get something like this fix. Sometimes it never works. You know, we have so many problems in our local legislature as well. As in our national leaders, right? It has been a challenge trying to get this through. We have had what was his name skeptical who who have the epi pen disaster when that was in our in our purview when we could see it. We watched it in real time. We heard we watched him, you know, look at us and look at answer not answer, the questions are just laugh or smirk and think this was funny and many of us just cringed at the thought of bills. That are empowered not. Caring enough about those who are in need of these these pharmaceuticals. So is there another way we can approach this. I mean, what if Americans just you know, that can just stop taking their medication and and try to do a holistic approach that sounds ridiculous. But there's gotta be something more that we the people can do. I tell you what you're on. I think there is. And I will tell you one thing about that Martin Shkreli Martin Shkreli got called in front of congress. Yes, he did. Smirk. Said what are you gonna do about it? You know, I bought this drug up, and I can price the way I want to and he was a bad guy, and he was an easily identifiable bad guy. But there's a lot of folks out there who are also bad guys who are not easily identifiable because they're not as you know, much of scofflaws as Martin Shkreli was I mean, they're they're hiding the ball. They understand the way to make money is not by by being a big shot pharma, bro. It's to hide the ball. That's what they're doing with farm out. That's what they're doing. How they that's how they. Hide their money as well. So I think task force can call it out. Congress isn't going to do anything about it. It's up to the states to do this. And and and also more importantly the mistake a litigator in the state like attorney general Ellison. He's got the attitude to do what I've served with this guy since two thousand two in the legislature. We first came in, and he is not going to be beholden to these big money interests who aren't necessarily as easily identifiable bad guys as Martin Shkreli was. You know, it breaks my heart because of course, Nicole, your son pay such an incredible price for this as so many Americans, and they're on the brink of that so many are on the brink of losing their lives because they can't you know, you gotta decide do I eat cat food. So that I can pay for my medicine or just don't eat it all so I can get my medicine. It's insane. So if there's something that a task force to do can do. And of course, you have a limited amount of time to get it done. Right. Right. Yeah. It's gonna take a little while to yo, you know, Bill the task force to get dug in to start making some major changes. But a task force is usually a has a certain amount of time if I'm not mistaken is that right? Representative Morrison isn't usually a task force has a time. Limit. Well, I think I don't think necessarily, but I think there is a lot of momentum to really there's some momentum to address the complexities of healthcare and prescription drugs drugs are bigger and bigger piece of that. But there's a lot of momentum and Minnesota to confront this. An unfortunately, Nicole son has has really been a wakeup call for many people in our state to say we won't stand for this. This is not these are not Minnesota values. We refused to let this happen to our people and your comment sherline made me nervous as a doctor CHU. I can't stand. The thought of people who need lifesaving medicines. She choosing either by choice or because they have no other choice to either ration or stop taking the medicine that they need to live and to be well that's unacceptable. It should be unacceptable to all of us. There's so many uninsured. That are finding other ways to try to get the medicine through our food sources. So many different ways. I'll try this. I heard that this if I take this particular over the counter vitamin, and that's gonna solve my problem and that can get into very dangerous territory..

"To calm me down there fan, Johnny down. Yeah. I'm a little oxygen. And then you put me on with Chris easier co host on the outdoor show, and he is just all fired up about this election. And you know, what a lot of people are the Democrats are and the Democrats socialists are very very happy. A lot of the Republicans are sad in and we should be sad. Because we really did have a great buncha candidates out there. I had several takeaways from the election, and my first and foremost probably was really voters really after eight years eight years of Dayton, and the Democrats you voted to reward their incompetence in their bad policy. I am I am really really surprised Minnesota. I expected better of you. And Greg member, Greg. I know you're listening because you live in New Britain. And you told me and listened to my show every Saturday, and you told me that you believed in the people in Minnesota, they wouldn't let us down and I hoped they wouldn't let us down. But they did. And the people in Minnesota voted for the very things that are going to hurt our economy. Our families our freedoms, I just cannot believe the people of Minnesota really truly want big government that they really truly believe that there is a government solution for everything, and I'll tell you. I'm not letting the Republicans off the hook either. Because you have to ask yourself. What have the Republicans done in the two years previously under Mark Dayton? What have they done to give us a reason to vote for them or to keep them in office? They haven't done much and then shocker of all shocks, the Minnesota house of representatives. You re elect Kurt doubt, Kurt. I wanna be governor doubt who cost us five hundred million dollars for the male clinic who. Cost us so many bad policies because he wanted to be governor. And only backed out when he thought Tim cappelletti was going to jump in the race. Are you kidding me? You reward him. We get crushed. And the house flips over to the Democrats and the Republicans unanimously elect Kurt Dow back to be the minority speaker, you have got to be kidding me. That does not inspire even one teeny tiny ounce of confidence in in the Republicans over there because there are Republicans that that bear a responsibility for these losses to this is not just done in isolation. And yes, the Democrats are a well oiled well-funded machine that did an incredible job turning out there people to vote, but you know, what the Minnesota GOP had some responsibilities to you. And where is where's an urban message? If you can't win without moving that needle in Minneapolis and Saint Paul in Ramsey county. You can not do us do it. So please do what you promised us. You're going to do. And maybe we'll think about putting some of the more of more of you back in office in twenty ten probably the most shocking thing about the election was Keith Ellison's win. Keith ellison. Oh, my God me too is dead in Minnesota. It is dead. Those are credible allegations the Star Tribune covered for him the Democrats covered for him Democrats, independents Republicans who ever voted for Keith Ellison. I don't know how you live with yourself. How delusional the you have to be to thank Keith. Ellison should be the top cop in the state of Minnesota. That is just absolutely unbelievable and Ilhan, Omar. Are you kidding me? She will now be able to be while depending on what happens in redistricting, but there's not much hope there. She will. Now be the Representative for CD five until she dies. The woman is an anti Semite. She has. Has immigration issues. That absolutely should be looked into and not to mention her campaign finance charges that hopefully something will come out of that. But other than hefty fines. And you know, that's the problem when we go after campaign finances, or whatever the Democrats, they don't care. They just read the check. They just read the check. And you know, what when this happened back before they got to keep control of the Senate. The Minnesota Senate now allow Ilhan Omar will be Representative to congress in Washington DC, she'll be found guilty of these of these campaign finance violations. They will gloss over the immigration fought fraud, if she married her brother, how'd it yet. What I don't even know how all that shakes out. But you know, what they'll just gloss over it and continue to gloss over it. And and probably the thing that frustrated me the most the most of the whole entire election cycle is what liars Democrats are liars liars. Here's liars I had to stop watching TV. Okay. It didn't take much, but I had to stop watching like even the evening news because every single commercial that came on they were lying about Republicans on healthcare lying about social security lying about immigration, and I have never seen a political party demonized. The way Republicans are by Democrats in the state of Minnesota calling every name in the book from racist, bigot, homophobic sex. I don't even know what all the words are. But it's just so frustrating, and the only way we fight back from that people is by us saying something, I remember once somebody close to me said, you know, those Republicans, they're just racists and bigots and homophobes, and I'm like really, do you think I'm a racist, homophobic, bigot and a horrible horrible person. And they're like, well, no, of course, not and I go, do you think the people that? I've introduced you to the people that I hang out with do you think they're racist, and homophobic, and bigots and islamophobic near like wall. No. And then why do you paint every Republican with a broad brush, please don't do that anymore? And you know, what they didn't. It was like they almost opened up there is, but I'll tell you folks, the GOP has an urban problem. They better find a message for the urban core. And yes, the suburbs or they're gonna keep losing election after election after election, and you know, what the DFL has a rural problem. They have a rural problem which doesn't matter because they can get elected with the urban core. But they they have a problem, and you heard it when Chris Kodak called in you heard some of the current concerns of out state Minnesota, and when you think of waltz and his so-called one Minnesota waltz lost sixty six out of the eighty seven counties sixty six out of the eighty-seven all he needed was partnering partner Ramsey county and most of Hennepin county, and he won and by. The way he called you what sticks. Everything out state is just cows and rocks or sticks. Don't even know what that was. And you know what? Keith Ellison was even worse. Keith Ellison was even worse. He lost seventy three eighty seven counties and today, greater Minnesota. Let's the seed. Yup. And today, you know, what we're saying? Hey, elect attorney general Ellison, let the city's build their trains and. Alleys, and you know, let everybody in pay for everybody's stuff and as hard work and people in the state, we'll just leave leave us alone. And we'll be fine. I'm in.

Senator had to resign when evidence emerged treated women biased. Senator Brown different in that case. They were talking about Al Franken abused his wife pushed his wife shoved his wife bullied his wife. I don't know that even though they now have put their differences aside. I don't know probably for the betterment of the family and the children, whatever. But those are in the core papers, we did reach out. No comment. Senator Feinstein to all these Democrats now say that that professor Ford should be believed. No, no presumption of innocence for for judge Cavanaugh. Also, the DNC each deputy chair, you know, Keith Ellison. You've heard his name. He's running to be Minnesota's next attorney general. Ellison's ex-girlfriend recently accused him of serious, physical and emotional abuse. And Ellison, by the way, apparently, there are tapes and videos of this. Alison went on to win the party's nomination for Minnesota AJ. Now, it's interesting yesterday, by the way, this is current. This has happened fairly recently. She tweets yesterday, the DNC. In other words, very people that want to go back to nineteen eighty two and believe the woman that's made this last minute allegation against judge Cavanaugh. Well, they haven't talked about Keith Ellison at all that I've seen. I reached out to the DNC and Ellison's office. I haven't received a comment yet. Anyway, the woman tweeted that the DNC refused to believe her accusations and even smeared threatened and isolated her. This is the same party of let's say Ted Kennedy Bill Clinton, he Ellison Sherrod Brown is the party. Now that's trying to block Kavanagh's confirmation over a charge. Just brought up that took place in nineteen eighty two. The party of Harvey Weinstein. The party of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, and I can Eric Schneiderman, and I can go on and on. Now, the charges are serious. I believe in the presumption of Minnesota. I believe these charges should be taken seriously, and that professor Ford should have every right to testify and the Republicans have literally gone above and beyond. Anything? They can do. They're trying to accommodate professor poured. Or attorney said she'd testified publicly under oath. She's now resist now demanding an FBI investigation before any such discussion would take place. Now, the FBI is address this and the FBI has been very clear about it. The allegation doesn't involve any potential federal crime. So the FBI it's not their jurisdiction. Now, you have Democrats. According to the Washington Times in the hill as the FBI said, it's that's not what their jurisdiction is. But now Democrats are encouraging festive Ford to contact the Montgomery County. Maryland police whose jurisdiction would include the home of where Ford says that the crime took place. We didn't have an exact location or an exact year Laurence tribe is saying there's no statute of limitations in Maryland for Raipur sexual assault of a minor. Under sixteen years of age is observation on Twitter set off a firestorm of demands the Maryland attorney general get on the investigation. Cavanaugh? Critics are calling for Maryland. Attorney general Brian frosh to open an investigation. No doubt. The Democrats will be actively pushing for that as well. Well here, but if they really cared about sexual assault, and they would be consistent in their views would not be a political topic for them. I did take the time I've interviewed Juanita broaddrick. Kathleen willey. Paula Jones, Jennifer, flowers and other women. After a new them some cases numerous times, I've come to the conclusion, I believe them all. I think that's why when an allegation has made that listen. And then judge Cavanaugh is saying, yeah, he he's willing to go under oath and he's willing to show up Monday, and he'll take all questions from the Democrats. In professor Ford. Now has changed the standard at the lawyers said, well, no, no, no. We're not going to do unless the FBI does this this and this, but that's not what they said in the beginning of Democrats Washington Post pointing out there all now turning against Dianne Feinstein is she plots nextstep Feinstein is dealing with questions about her decision to wait weeks before sharing the Ford letter, issuing only a cryptic statement. Last thursday. This is now a week before the vote was supposed to take place yesterday or today. I'm glad we're gonna have a hearing and get to the bottom of it. It's been would have been nice to have it done before a Senate Senator, Jon tester. He's up for reelection though in Montana. He doesn't wanna lose raises a lot of questions. What are these Democrats in red states that supported Trump gonna do? What's Joe Manchin gonna do? What's Bill Nelson gonna do what's Claire mccaskill gonna do? What's joe? Donnelly. Gonna do. What's heidi? Heitkamp gonna do. Listen to Hillary last night that she says the cabinet on sex assault. Accused deserves the benefit of the doubt. Juanita Broderick said that she wants an FBI investigation into the rape allegation. She made against Bill Clinton. You know? So there's a lot of doubts whether or not this is going to happen. But Dianne Feinstein, I can't say that everything is true. I don't know. I got her a lot of heat on social media. And from the base of the Democratic Party because nobody knows because nobody was there. Now, you have to look at all the other issues, and we got the I believe her I believe she has a right to be believed. Does that mean that Senator cab the judge cabin is? No right to be believed that all we rush the judgment guilty as charged. But. This is to be predicted. I told you when the opening in the court came, I told you would come to this because I know Democrats, I know liberals, I know who they are. That's why I have a right. And you have a right to be skeptical. Take it treat it seriously. But I think that the Republicans are doing everything possible to treat professor cabin or fairly. You know, things have gotten so bad on the deep state investigation. You know, the president now declassifying, and I'm redacting key is a documents. And that means Pfizer. The last is a warrant pages ten through twelve seventeen to thirty four all the reports of Russian related interviews with Bruce or Christopher Steele. Jim Komi page struck McCabe all their emails all their tax tens of thousands of them that now the president has demanded that they be released. Now, he does have the constitutional authority to do. So article two section one of our constitution gives the president. Unfettered authority over all executive branch matters. While the president is in charge of the executive branch of government that would include the DOJ and the FBI executive power shall be vested. In a president of the United States is empowered the president to issue executive actions. Orders memorandum's proclamations and directives who executive branch officials to take certain actions and refrain from taking other actions president is everyone superior in the executive branch failure to follow. His order is an active insubordination and meriting. The person's termination moreover, the president can ultimately has the ultimate authority over classification and declassification, by the way, the latest executive order on classification came from Obama executive order one three five to six. You know, this is this is what? This is what the president's power, by the way, both presidents Clinton. Obama declassified documents. And their orders were faithfully followed. Why do I say this people like Adam Schiff, and you've got John Brennan are scared to death. And you've got Andrew McCabe is writing a book it'll be out in December member of they impaneled a grand jury to look into potential crimes with him. The threat how the FBI protects America in the age of terror and Trump? Wow guy that is under investigation for many crimes. Let me tell you. Now, we have members of congress demanding the FBI department of Justice director of national intelligence refused to comply with the president's executive order to declassify his constitutional authority. They want a constitutional crisis. They don't wanna cooperate because they're going to be exposed. And we're gonna learn that there was a deep state attempt to derail not only the election and steal the election from the American people to help their favored candidate who had committed crimes that they exonerated her without investigating her on. But then of course, all the lies told the FIS accord judges to get warrants based on what was frauds committed before the court using funneled money to op research firm to or foreign national Russian lies and then used and distributed Lisa page, set nine months, they had no evidence of any collusion whatsoever. But they don't want. Any of this information to come out now in a letter intended to undermine the president's constitutional authority over the executive branch.
