Double duty P at 1234 in other news this morning House Republicans in the Manhattan district attorney's office have this week reached an agreement apparently to end the legal dispute over a House judiciary committee inquiry into former president Donald J Trump's historic indictment. Now under this deal, committee members will be able we're told to question former prosecutor Mark pomeranz under oath next month, but pomeranz will be accompanied by a lawyer from district attorney Alvin Bragg's office. The committee has vowed to investigate whether or not federal funds were improperly used in the New York probe of the former president. Critics in the case of the case say the move here is part they think of a campaign to intimidate and attack Bragg and that lawmakers are meddling in local state affairs when they have no authority to actually do so. Now we turn to the latest development this morning here at WTO P that we know of in the congressional probe into Hunter Biden's business dealings. CBS News has learned this weekend that Biden's attorneys are set apparently to meet with Justice Department officials and the U.S. attorney in Delaware next week in this case. This news coming as House Republicans revealed new information about the origins of a letter from 50 former intelligence officials concerning Hunter Biden's laptop, CBS News correspondent Katherine Harry's with more for us. According to a letter released by Republican chairman of two House committees, former CIA deputy director Michael morrell told congressional investigators the days after the laptop story, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, then a Biden campaign adviser reached out to morrell. Republicans say that conversation set in motion the events that led to the former intelligence officials public statement. It is not a State Department issue. Well, the State Department deflected questions. Today House Democrats released what they described as more of murrell's interview, claiming Republicans, cherry picked excerpts to smear secretary blinken, and morell testified blinken did not direct suggest or insinuate that he write the laptop statement. CBS investigative correspondent Catherine herridge on WTO P, the president's son is being investigated for potential tax crimes. We have new developments now on another front related to the leak of classified materials online. On this, the FBI has been interviewing apparently members of the private Discord server where those papers were actually allegedly posted by a Massachusetts air national guardsman. The Washington Post reports, it's an indication law enforcement officials are trying to understand how the highly sensitive info made it out of that chat room. 21 year old Jack teresi was arrested last week, accused of actually leaking those documents. He faces up to 15 years. He worked as an IT specialist and had administrative privileges on classified computer systems that allowed him access to a wide range of materials we are told including military briefings. House speaker Kevin McCarthy proposing this week, capping government spending for the next decade in exchange for votes to raise that debt ceiling, but The White House seems to want none of it. McCarthy says he expects to bring a bill formally to a vote in the house next week. CBS News correspondent Scott McFarland, telling WTO, the Democrats might not be the only ones to oppose this bill. This is the first public vote on a debt ceiling measure ahead of this very dangerous deadline that's coming this summer. It'll be before the House rules committee Tuesday night that it will go to the full House floor likely Wednesday or Thursday. The question is, can Republicans muster 218 votes to pass this through the house and therefore give themselves some leverage to negotiate with The White House or with the Senate. If Republicans can't even pass their own measure to raise the debt ceiling and in the process, caught a lot of spending they want to see reduced or slow the rate of growth of some of the federal government spending, they may have no leverage to go back to The White House with the Senate with. The economists say the U.S. could hit its borrowing limit and default on its debts this summer as soon as early August. About 37 a federal judge of the New Orleans Roman Catholic bankruptcy case is actually refusing to recuse himself in the case after an Associated Press AP report revealed that he might have a conflict of interest here and this report found that U.S. district judge Greg girty donated tens of thousands of dollars to the archdiocese charities and consistently apparently ruled in favor of the church and contentious cases involving nearly 500 clergy sex abuse victims. Actually told attorneys that a panel of federal judges has to review the possible conflict found that no reasonable person would question his impartiality. Stay tuned. Good Saturday morning the weekends here. Thanks for being part of it with us here at WTO P of the bit by our April 22nd at 1238. Carlos Ramirez is in the WTO traffic

"Voice, the lyrics, everything about it, was produced by John Cale. Parallelized my insincere. The empty cradle. Ring home to that man to me. And then shortly after that she came to Edinburgh Nico did and played a concert. I went to the concert and snuck in, I was 14 at the time, and always a precocious. I know. I snuck in. First of all, she didn't look like the cover of Chelsea girl at all. She looked quite different but she was still incredibly beautiful and dead pan and she sat down with her harmonium and played janitor of lunacy and songs like that. And then she was joined on stage by a band called the Cuban heels who were her backing band and she played some Velvet Underground songs, et cetera and after the show I went and stuck backstage and got her to sign my leather jacket and she smiled at me and touched my cheek and I've never washed it since. Oh man I always go back to that piece of text that the pioneering critic, Richard Goldstein wrote on the cover of the first Velvet Underground inside cover. You know, that Nico sings like a cello waking up in the morning in perfect ovals. That voice is captivating. It is absolutely captivating and also just sonically that music seems so timeless to me. It seems almost medieval. In a sense, the drones are like a her de girty. Her main instrument is the harmonium, which I was going to ask about this. How did you duplicate that? A lot of harmonium on the record as there has to be. Did you get one or is this patch? This is it. All right. And tell people what it is. So primitive, weird thing. It is a strange instrument and it's very popular in the Indian culture. But it was first developed. I'll describe it to you mine is a portable wooden box. It's about the size of a, you know, I don't know. It looks kind of like a puppy's coffin, not to be morbid. But and it has bellows at the back. So you squeeze the air through and it goes through reads and you play it like an organ. This one I have, you have to play with one hand because your other hand is squeezing. So for an Indian culture, it's great for meditation. However, I believe that the harmonium was developed for as a sort of portable chart organ so that people could have church in their living room and they didn't need an organ. That's what I think it was developed for. So maybe colonialists dragged over to India to whatever. Indoctrinate people of world influence. I know. So when I started doing the album, yes, indeed, I had a synth patch that was an accordion synth patch which sounded pretty good to me. And then I was like, you know, no, I've got to get on eBay and buy a harmonium, and I did. And it is the best thing I've ever bought. I love it so much. I mean, just it actually helped me very much get in touch with her in a sense because I understood the rhythm of her voice and the rhythm of the air going through the instrument working in tandem. And so it was a real pleasure for me to learn this instrument. And when I saw Nico. Wow. Not much older than you were. Black shrouded figure on stage. All black, all black, little pale skin in the face. Hunched over the harmonium. She was pumping the bellows with her foot. Yeah, that's the fancy model. Yeah, you need one of those. I really do. You know, it's so funny to read if there's a book out by Jennifer otter bicker dick about Nico and we've since become friends. But it talks about how her harmonium was like she'd use it as a cigarette ashtray and it was just ruined, you know, which I think John kale described it as a dragon with hella tosis. Which could also be a description of Niko. But yeah, it's a beautiful instrument and it was really fun to work with record and everything. The drone of that harmonium and her voice had a sort of a drone and droning quality to it. Yeah. Really dovetailed really well with where kale was coming from from the avant garde classical world. Yes. And the velvet had that kind of central to their sound. It sounded very ancient in some ways and very modern in others. So she sort of embodied that. So that feel, I think that's always been innate in your music as well. Did you feel like that had to be an essential part of this record, sonically? I did, but I also think that you're right. I mean, because I was listening to Nico before I ever made records. At the sort of rate that it becomes a part of your DNA almost. And like I was saying by getting the harmonium and singing with it, you find where your voice starts to draw in and how your voice can really take off. If you listen to the album, there's subtleties. I actually find out recording it with a contact mic that it was picking up my voice at the same time, so I started using that. The voice and the instrument for Nico kinda became the same thing. I think she got lost in it. And I only realized that when I was doing the same thing as she was doing, but then your point is good when you think about John kills, work with la Monte young and some of these early sun blindness music, these early 60s recordings kale made with Oregon and viola. It's drone. He was fascinated with drone, and she kind of brought drone to the table for herself because it was not kale that introduced her to the harmonium. It was actually Jim Morrison. Who told her to buy a harmonium. And so kale and her were just like a match made in heaven. If you're like, in terms of his being able to relate to what she was doing and build around that. His work on that first real solo Nico album, I guess the marble index. His work on that really is so completely intuitively sympathetic to her sound. You know, she cried when she heard the playback. She was so humble, happy that somebody finally got what she was talking about and kale was that person her whole life.
