House Democrat says support lacking for Trump impeachment inquiry

"Jerry Nadler, here in the situation room, just moments ago, telling me and I'm quoting him, now, it may very well, come to a formal impeachment inquiry. Let's get some reaction from our political and legal experts, and Gloria borger. What do you think he's, he's holding out that possibility? Very clearly, but he doesn't seem in any rush. You know, he he says it might come to that. But not so fast. I think he's in the Nancy Pelosi school here. How it'll end that is I'm gonna try and get people before my committee. He said to you. It's important that Bob Muller testifies. He thinks he's a public servant he thinks he's going to be able to get them to testify publicly because that is what they want important for the for the American public to hear what he has to say because not everyone has read the Muller report is imported out. So I think what he's saying to you is one foot in front of the other, and we're not going to be pushed into this. But first, we have to tell the story to the American public new also make clear. He wants to make sure that. There's a consensus among the democratic leadership that he and Nancy Pelosi the speaker on the same page. That's right in one of the things that he said, was at this point. There's just not the support in his caucus. Their course or this very vocal minority of folks who do one and peach man inquiry do one. I'm peach mate charges file, but they're not enough of them yet. We'll see how this goes day by day they're doing. They do seem to be louder and they do seem to be more of them. But I was just sort of struck by Jerry Nadler's basic tone. I mean, there was no sense of urgency really. If you've certainly compare him to what we hear from progressives in the folks, you really want to March and worth impeachment. He was very measured almost diffident in terms of where they stand right now in terms of this impeachment incudes interested. Bionic is nearly half of the Democrats on the judiciary committee want to begin some sort of formal impeachment proceeding, fifty nine Democrats in the house out of two hundred and thirty five want to do so, so it's not it's not happening yet. Well, and he made. They have been addressing some of their concerns by seemingly stating that what they're doing. Now is not so different from an inquiry. He said, they're just maybe a few levels of the process that would be different. If in fact, they did launch an official inquiry, but he made it seem I agree with the panel as if they are making inroads, and they are continuing to do the work that they are focusing on right now. Now what did stand out, and maybe it was just an oversight. But you specifically asked him if he was on the same page with Nancy Pelosi. He didn't say, yes, he also didn't say, no, but, but he did say, you know, if if that's what it'll take, we will get there. We're not there yet, but it didn't give you a yes or no definitive answer. Also from the legal standpoint, allure coats, would it make much of a difference in obtaining documents from the administration in getting witnesses to appear before the committee if there was a formal formal proceeding underweight as opposed to the informal employee that's going on. Well, yes, I mean the participator prosperity saying they've done their nose at it. Can. Continuously because they have to rely on the court to kind of enforce it and hope that the courts will say, there's no good legislative reason to have this and kind of dismiss it. But in reality, the impeachment inquiry, gives a great deal more power. They don't have to have legislative purpose as their basis. That is the constitutional purpose. That's there also opens the floodgates you don't have to the rule, sixty there have to think about the notions of whether or not they have to have is an oversight function alone. Is it tied enough? They need all these details for legislation. They could simply say, look the constitution guarantees the right to have oversight and accountability in the executive branch of government. We're doing just that. So it does open more avenues. But remember again, as we're all saying, this is the political process and political processes, don't have the same level of common sense, perhaps, as the judicial process going

"As a young mom, I will fight for your children as hard as I would fight for my own. I believe that healthcare should be a right and not a privilege. I believe we should have better public schools because it shouldn't matter what block you grow up on. I believe we need to start rewarding work in this country. Again. Anybody who wants to work hard? She be able to get whatever training. They need to earn their way into the middle class. And to be able to have the American dream, which has always been for everyone. Okay. So let's deconstruct that for a second Senator gillibrand says she's a young mom projecting her womanhood. And her youth said healthcare is a right hitting the bullseye for leftist wanting fully socialized health care. She wants better public schools. Translation, throw even more money at failing public schools. She wants to start rewarding work in this country. Again, not even sure what that means. But it makes her seem like these down with common folk she brings up training for people to get new jobs. I e more government spending. And of course, you closes with the American dream for everyone. Early prediction here is that hurt campaign goes nowhere. Another democrat. Who's announced for president is likely to go nowhere, but not like Jila brand who brings nothing new to the table. But because she dares to think independently that would be Tulsi Gabbard member of congress from Hawaii who's being savaged by leftist Democrats for daring to stand for something. The Democrats were supposedly famous for being anti war most specifically she met with the Syrian president and opposes our presence in Syria, which President Trump will soon end listen to the conventional elite media wisdom from Alison Cammarata and Gloria borger of CNN. She went in two thousand seventeen Gloria this is going to be another issue to visit with sharla Saad in Syria. And this trip is already come back to bite her. He did apologize. She did. But you know, how many apologies can you make for bad judgment. Not only Bush should be criticized inside the Democratic Party. But I think it makes her less effective candidate. I mean, you know,.

And we have the final say on these things we know what he said doesn't hold water. Go ahead. With the networks are going to be looking at. Okay. Are we giving him time to say something that this is what he's going to say? It's untrue. This and we shouldn't let the president speak on the networks. Why he always lies? Unlike we in the media. We shouldn't let we should decide if the president. Why do the press exist in this country, ladies and gentlemen, wiser a freedom of speech clause in the first amendment? Anybody now. Is it for the purpose of serving the press? And these pretend journalists. Or their corporate masters now. The constitution exists for the people freedom of speech freedom of the press freedom of association. Freedom of religion religion. All these things exist for us. So. These people are supposed to be professionals who are conducting their so-called profession. In our interests. But they're not. They are mouthpieces. They are propagandists for the Democrats. They are progressives through and through. And so they're questioning whether or not the president should have access to speak to the American people about issues that they keep reporting on because he can't be trusted, you know, brianna Keiler. She can be who the hell is she? But let's go to Gloria borger. I'm sure she has something profound to say go ahead isn't going to call for national emergency, which we you were just talking to Susan about this issues and Hennessy really who the hell. Susan hennessy. Go ahead. Shall emergency. And of course, it's the networks for to give him time. And that's by no means guaranteed. Oh, it's not a guarantee, ladies and gentlemen, because their for freedom of the press and free speech. Freedom of the press and free speech. Now, we can't let the president speak. He's endlessly giving these these presidential speeches to the nation hasn't given one. In two years. I one. And he's gonna lie. That's not what they mean. We hate him. We don't agree with him. And they rack themselves and freedom of the press. We're the ones protecting freedom of the press. Then God help us all go ahead about Nancy Pelosi. I mean, she's gotta be able she's got to be able to talk as well. So now, we have a special pleader for Nancy Pelosi. Not that we didn't already know it. We've got to be able to speak to get the president's speech Nancy Pelosi 'cause she never got speak, and we never cover her. She gets to speak. He's the president of the United States. He is the executive branch under article two of our constitution. Nancy Pelosi is a member of the house of Representative. They confer the title of speaker on the house of the house. She's elected from San Francisco. She's not elected nationwide. She's not contrary to her constitutional illiteracy at the same level of the president of the United States. She's one of four hundred and thirty five miscreants, malcontents. That's it. But we let Manson speak. Okay. If you like Nancy speaking in a let Jim Jordan responder, how far we know platelets. We can't. Go ahead. To me because shut up you idiot. Now. We have Kerry Cordeiro now who is she or he I don't know.

"Why not to leave the people out that the Democrats the deplore the so called that Hillary's mistake. Try not to leave so many people behind and that and that both parties will learn from it, but I can tell you now the Republican party is the Trump party. There is no other Republican party. And maybe they'll be a third party who knows? But, but but there is no other party. I when I did this documentary on Trump, and I can end with this. If you want that that I sat down with Ryan's Priebus who is in a chair, the RMC, and I asked him is before the convention, and I asked him, I said, okay. So is this the party of Trump, and he got Ryan says a very sweet person, and he doesn't get angry. He got really angry. It means. What do you mean is this a party of Trump? We're not the party of anyone person where the Republican party he'd answer the same way today. Exactly. And he got mad at me. And I said, well, he said, no, no, no, we're not the party of. Trump and today, it's the party of Trump. He owns it. He operates it. He believes he saved it in the Senate, and it's about him. And I don't know how long that can last. But that's what it is. Right now, we shall see. I look forward to sitting with you. Many many more interesting nights in the in the years to come to tell everyone.

"Remaining sources of mine. The president complains about all these fake news in these fake sources. And of course, you know, he's he there are a lot of people that he knows who were talking, and he talks to the press, you know, he'll call up Maggie Haberman or he'll. Yeah. And he'll say, I don't know her well or does. So it's he plays that game too. He's done it his whole life. He used to pose as his own PR guy. John miller. Yeah. John barren. And and he started out, you know, doing really well with the press with New York tabloids. He was the star of New York. And so I think now this is kind of a whole different ball game for him. And he doesn't like any criticism period when you're president. If you're not criticized you're not doing anything. What do you think? The what do you think this election mean meant relative to two thousand twenty? Well, look, I think as you pointed out the Donald Trump. I mean, the fact that Florida is remains for him. Maybe right. Yes is important. But Michigan Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, big states for him may not be available to him. And I think he thinks of everything in terms of twenty twenty. So I do think it has impact. The one thing we. Haven't talked about which is okay. The governors are so important because you need a governor on your side. If you're running for president, right? They have the infrastructure and then redistricting which is huge. And you you see the state legislatures in the Obama years. I think thousand state legislative seats were lost. I'm not sure all of them were made up last night. But I think a lot of them were seven legislative chambers that switch right from Republicans. So I think that is hugely we've usually underplayed it because it's only day one. But that's going to have an impact for decades. So I think that you don't see it right in front of your eyes right now, but it will make it will make a very very big difference. And that's good for the Democrats. So I think that it was a usually consequential election usually consequential I think emotionally what we heard from some of our panelists last night like van Jones was upset. About Stacey Abrams or Guillem. It was sort of these were the emotional stars of the cycle. And if they didn't win that that that van called at heartbreaking, I think, but the others, but the, but the real story is that the Democrats made amazing headway here and control the house. And now have something to say about the agenda. No, which they did not before yet. Not only things to say about the agenda. But also to block check things that that. Like, the repeal of the Affordable Care checks and balances in. I mean, they can do their job of oversight. That's their job. And so they can start asking questions about what happened in the Puerto Rico hurricane. What what what was behind the policy of separating children from their parents right at the border. These questions can be asked about what's going on at the EPA or and those things the American public want answers to that. What's who is who is lobbying the EPA who's got the top jobs there. What are these revolving doors were hearing about that? So I I industry working with environmental protection and having too much influence. So I think the Democrats will do that. I think there's a dangerous, you know, over doing. Exactly, yeah. We'll see. So I'm away out. I gotta ask you where do you think we come out on this? When someday down Trump will not be president of the United States. He he he will have been an oversized presence, you know, for better worst, depending on your point of view. But in our politics, how will our politics have been changed in our country. How will it have been changed as a result of this epic? It's you know, I I don't know the answer. I'm not trying to dodge question. But I really don't know the answer that I like to think that the pendulum in American politics wings, and that after and after Donald Trump is just it's just like you got Jimmy Carter, you know, after a Donald Trump. You may get somebody who is the opposite. You know after Pt Barnum, maybe you get to somewhere somewhere more in the middle because the public is tired exhausted exhausted by it and try..

"So I, but this clinical question that that's a that's a challenge because I know there are a lot of people who who are very assiduous about what they do you among them for whom this is an unsuspecting unexpected place to be it's it's really unusual to be called the enemy of the people and fake news. And and. You know, when we started out this campaign because our boss Jeff Zucker had a pre existing relationship with with Donald Trump because he after all put him in the apprentice made him a star. So they had a fine relationship. It was fine. And in fact, I believe thinking back on it. You may remember this to that CNN calendar. A lot of criticism for running to many of Trump's oh without question live. Why are you doing that? And I'd hear from the Bush campaign. Mar you're giving him all this free media. And they had a point. They actually had a point. I think we probably did run too much of Donald Trump live, but Donald Trump live was captivating. It was good television. As he knows. That's the thing. You know that? There are, you know, elite opinions of Dow Trump that sort of reduce him to kind of cartoon character. He helps sometimes on that. But it it minimizes who he I mean, he has a real genius for the modern media environment. And understanding it understanding the symbiotic relationship between him and the news media. And and and you know, you saw today now whether it was his intent or not I don't know what you whether wanted to advance the story whether he just stepped on it. But he knows that at any moment, he can send the news cycles skittering off into another direction. And that all he has to do is be outrageous enough. Yeah. Any any is? And that's why our weeks or so crazy. I mean, we you can barely. Remember what happened on Monday on Friday? And and the look politicians. It's it's as old as the ages attack the media. I don't know one president who loved the media all the question. Right. Yeah. Of course. And with good reason a lot of the time. But this was set up that way, wasn't it. I That's why mean, that's why. the founding fathers wanted a job. It's our job to ask tough questions. And today it is press conference. The president was not only snippy with us and critical, but he actually accused African American reporter of asking a racist question. And he he was dismissive and talked about, you know, everything is the press is full it works. I mean, attacking the media works, and it's his tried and true. And if he doesn't have any other particular enemy, this is good as anything to us who told he told I think it was Leslie Stahl nut in this interview. Was she was it. She who. Yes. He she. He told her I want to want to make sure that people that when you write bad stuff about me people dismiss it. And so that's why I I go after the media the media, but it's hard when he goes after the media, and he says, I didn't say that. And. On tape. You know, that's that's a little bit difficult. The relationship with CNN is now very difficult, and you know, after the pipe bombs, and I guess three of them were sent to to to contributors to CNN in Atlanta. I think that it didn't get any better. And I think that I've never worked anywhere that was having an open discussion with the president discussion isn't quotes discussion with the president about our role as a free and independent press as we are now. And so we're under attack every day. And you just you just do your job. There's just nothing else. You can do it does strain relationships with people who work at the White House. Although I must say a lot of people who have revolved in and out of the White House who I talked to on a regular basis understand what's going on. And it doesn't stop them from..

"Second home state Senator John tesla despite the president's best efforts manage to win reelection. Right. Look, I think that it's a huge deal. The Democrats took the house, and and I don't know if you would use this David, you know, more about these things than I do. But I think we're seeing the beginning of a real realignment in American politics, and that the president can go back to the red states all he wants, and he's got his base etcetera. But if you're gonna grow that party beyond Trumpism, you can't lose women sixty forty you can't lose independence by twelve points. You're just can't he won independence by four points in two thousand sixteen. I think that's a a big story and the and the people the Democrats brought in were not the sort of Republicans like to say, it's the wild eyed aggressives, these were George H W Bush moderate, moderate Republicans now Democrats. They brought in. I mean, these were not these are not raging liberals that they brought into the house of representatives. These are suburban moderate Republican districts. So when you talk about a realignment, and the Democratic Party looks very different. I mean, it's it's it's white suburban. Well, educated wealthier, plus minorities. I mean, white plus minorities who are largely democratic and the Republican party is shriveling into this sort of older demographic. And eventually, you know, you can put off the inevitable only for certain amount of time. But they've gotta find they've gotta find new people. Right. And so what last night showed me is. Yes, Donald Trump can win in the places he won in two thousand sixteen and do very well. Maybe maybe. But when you. He took the Republicans to quite a beating in Pennsylvania in Michigan lost Walker in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, better better in in Ohio votes. Sherrod Brown one reelection there. Those were really the states that I mean, along with Florida that delivered the presidency to Donald Trump shrinking little even in the even in the sort of what he those three states you were talking about. They're not guaranteed, and he does have a great deal of blue-collar support. I think Democrats have to find a way to get that back which they because Donald Trump has done very well blue-collar. Well, I think you know, it seems to me, and I said this at the time out private sitting right next to you. When I said at that Democrats made a mistake in two thousand sixteen by sending this very pronounced message that you know, we've got women we've got young yet, we've got minorities. So we don't really need the rest of you. And that's why the deplorables thing Resnick so poorly out there. And if you tell people they're not needed. They're not part of something. They're going to believe you exactly and it made Donald Trump's mission or is his his strategy easier. But it's hard to think of a president and you worked for one. And he who who wouldn't after your lectured, go out and try and expand rather than tracked. That's the that's generally the strategy. Generally, the strategy is to tell people who didn't vote for you. Here's why you should have voted for me. And I'm for you too. Because I'm the president of everyone and Donald Trump just has never done that. And he will only went to places during the campaign where he would get full edge relation and knew that he can make a difference and then handed the house to pull right and then blamed him. So I think that's who Donald Trump is. And and then today, he shamed. All these people by name who didn't ask him to Cam. Pain for him in. And he sort of said, I don't know my happy that they lost. I don't know my happy. My sad. Republicans. Yeah. What do do you? Do you talk to him Trump? No, it's hard for anybody CNN to speak with the president. Let me ask you about that. Because you know, when I was in the White House CNN was the place that we wanted to be because CNN had such a broad reach. It wasn't just. People who liked Obama wasn't just people who hated Obama. But there were people who dependents dependent. And so on it seems as if the president's mission has been too partisan is, you know, his relationship with CNN. So as to as to sideline it or try to as a, and I know we both work for this Senate..

I mean, he's acting and you can do that under federal vacancies act for two hundred days. But it's only temporary seems to me Muller had to know something like this could happen. He's there too smart. But I don't know what his plan B is. I just I don't know you must know him though. I know you know, what I did a ten minute piece on him. And he speaks to nobody. So. I have interviewed a lot of people who know him really, well, but I can't say that I know him other than by his reputation, and by the testimony of people who worked with him for years, tell very funny stories about him, which in my favorite of which is that we got a couple of them one is he called Eric Holder at one time and he asked for demotion right because he wanted to trial. He wanted to get back on he wanted to get back on the beat. Yeah. Yeah. And and and then somebody who worked with him in private practice. You know, he never stayed in private practice for very long because this person said to me, you know, he'd sit down with his white collar client, and the client would tell them the story, and then Muller would say well sounds like you're guilty, you plead and that didn't go over to. Well. So he's always he's always preferred to stay in government. I mean, he's a real prosecutor. I heard one from from. Someone who's brother worked for him when he was US attorney, and he would call a meeting at six in the morning, call his senior staff together, and he'd always start the meeting by saying what have you done for your country today? Really that's six in the morning. He only wears white button down shirts. And I was told when he had a Christmas party at his house, which was called for six to nine at nine o'clock. He started flipping the lights on. People with time to leave. He's a I mean, I had a couple of encounters with them not just sitting in a room when he was briefing, the president on one thing or another and he was right from central casting. And I said in say a word because he scared the hell out of. Yeah. I could see that. I could everybody who works for him says, they call him the boss when you go into the boss, it's all business, and he s you fifty questions he makes a decision and then. There's the next thing. There's no kibitzing. There's nothing I do think don't you that the election of democratic house this week that it complicates things for Trump because they're not going to be eager to see Muller. Silenced Kerr tales stymied in his in his in his work. No. And I think you know, Chuck Schumer today, that's the Senate side. But they're you know, they'd like to pass legislation that guarantees that he can keep his job. But whether you could do that in a lame duck or how that would occur is not is not quite clear. There have been I should point out. Lots of Republicans last year who said firing Muller would be the red line. And of course, he hasn't fired Muller. He's fired sessions, but whether Republicans now still believe that or care about it, and you know Muller in our exit polls last night. Muller's popularity was underwater. And I'm sure Donald Trump looked at that. It was forty six disapproved to forty-one approve. Yeah. And yeah, I Trump looked at it. I don't think mother probably is not at all not about it. So what about the election? And what is how do you interpret the results? I I mentioned earlier there was you know, that really part of the Ning was interpreted as dark from a democratic standpoint because of some of the early defeats.

"And you've been at CNN now for since two thousand seven talk to me about the evolution of cable news for better and worse are well. First of all, let me say something CNN is the most dynamic place I've ever worked. Just look at the day today or yesterday we had an election yesterday today. Jeff Sessions is out and CNN has to be on it every minute. So it's it's a very demanding parent. It's very demanding. And is very labor intensive more than a network where you have twenty two minutes in the evening morning show. You know, CNN is a show twenty four seven. And so it demands were stamina in many ways as a reporter it demands you to have a greater depth of sourcing because anything happens, for example, I've been on the Russia reporting team, and that's been great because I've had to develop different kinds of sources. And stretch my muscles in different ways. I'm not an intelligence report. But who knows? Yeah. I mean, it's been it's been an amazing experience. Let's stop right there for a second. Because and get back to the the story of the moment having covered this investigation from the beginning. What happens now, do you think? Well, I don't think it's going to be over tomorrow. The way a lot of people do, but I think right now it's in jeopardy. I think the Muller investigation is in jeopardy how far along do you think he is very far? I think he has probably written a report. I think he is in the goes, I know he's into Goshi ations with the presence attorneys. They exchanged written answers to questions about collusion. But I think it's still an open question about whether they might want to subpoena the president if he doesn't want to testify. In person. And I think that is still being negotiated. And I don't know if that set Donald Trump off, I have no, you know, I have no idea. I think I think Muller has formed a lot of stuff out to the southern district of New York, and to other places that he cannot think he's been planning for this exigency. Yes. It would it would shock me. If he didn't have a plan knowing that Jeff Sessions was going to be fired. I think the big question now is what happens rod Rosenstein, and because rod Rosenstein, who is Jeff Sessions number two is in charge of the Muller investigation. So if Muller were to want to subpoena, the president or issue his report, it has to go to rod Rosenstein and get approved, but no longer because the attorney general won't be recused. Well, that's that's right. And rod Rosenstein, no longer has thority over Muller. This happened in our ago. So does rod Rosenstein, stay does. He what what happens? What happens or have has the entire top? At the Justice department been decapitated. I don't think we this is just unraveling in real time do sessions and Rosenstein. No are they free agents. You think to testify before congress? I don't have the president Vokic executive prove. Well, I don't know the I really don't know the answer to that. Let's see what happens with Rosenstein. So all the interviews that have been done with Muller. The White House has not invoked privilege on conversations with people who work in the White House, including the White House counsel. But they reserve the right to invoke it later. So you could have Muller. This is going to be very big issue. And it could be a bit of a crisis. Write a report. And you could have the Justice department redact most of it because the White House says its privileged and then have a half report go to Capitol Hill, which will create havoc particularly now with a democratic house. And there there would be a fight over that. There would be a fight over privilege at it could go to the supreme court..

"It was it was a great experience of you went onto Newsweek the star folded does star. Yes. Well, yes. And I went will the star was bought by time magazine, and Jim Bilas was fired. And I didn't like that very much. So Joe Albritton was the owner. And I cried to him in the newsroom, see, how can you fire Jim Bill, which is probably not a great move. But and I did go to I did go to Newsweek to legendary. Mel elfin hired me hired me at Newsweek, and we had an amazing bureau. I mean that was the the Newsweek bureau and the and the craft of writing for news magazine and reporting for a news magazine was an education in itself because you it. It was a luxury because you actually had week right to do a story. Imagine shes. Yeah. I think that that there is there's a great advantage to that. And then, but there's you know, I always needed the deadline to write motivate me we used to write Thursday nights. And then it would get sent up to New York. And then they would re write it. And then, but but it was you could have a week of reporting which was so great at looking back on it. What a luxury that was it's one of the things that the new modern media environment doesn't permit and you wonder about the qual-. I mean, people do amazing work under difficult circumstances in deadlines, but you wonder what I don't wonder I know that something's been lost. Because we've lost strata of editors who used to read copy and ask the right questions and we've lost the time for reflection, and you know, the. Premium is on speed get it online and getting an this the other thing, which which is getting to know your sources, I mean, I was their chief congressional correspondent. And I would spend my weeks in the in the lobbies of the chambers. Pulling members off the floor to talk to them not on the phone not by taxed, but one on one person to person, and I still believe there is nothing that replaces that and you know, how we all do this by shorthand. I'm texting sources right all the time, right? But there's not that connection that you had when you were sitting in the speakers lobby every day and actually talking to them, and that's how I got to know Dick Cheney so well when he was head of the House Republican conference he was the ideas man, which his daughters now running for that job. And he was a different man when he was in the when he was in the house, I might add. But but members members like to do that. And it was such a great experience, and there's no big vivid figures. Including the speaker was tip O'Neill, probably when he was and he was you know, he had a daily presser in his little office. And we'd all go in every day at noon and tip would speak to the press every single day, and he'd make a lot of mistakes. He threw in the towel once on the tax Bill that Ronald Reagan wanted if you'll recall, and, but I also remember speaking of being a woman when I was pregnant he'd come in everyday and Pat my belly, and then he'd go, and then you sit down at his desk, and he'd say how you doing, you know, and he was so wonderful. I wouldn't have thought twice about that. Right. But he was a very available speaker. Yeah. And all that all that's gone. All that all that is completely. You went to US news and World Report. I think that's where I probably I. Came across you. And you spent another ten eleven years, they I forget how many semi my editors from Newsweek ended up running US news. And and David Gergen hired me actually at US news. I between his stints Turkoman and. Stinson government bought US bought US news. And my I had a couple of editors from Newsweek win over there. And and David Gergen went over there. And they hired me there. And it was it was great. It was wonderful place to work. And then when Gergen went to the White House, I took over his column at in the magazine. So we were underdog, but we did we did pretty well..

"So I drove forty five minutes every day in a car a little old car provided by the Washington star that broke down, and then I covered that. And then I cover the Annapolis legislature. And so I got into politics kind of through the the back door until remind kind of brought me on the more national seed you. Part of that whole idea of shuttling off the young female reporter to educate beat was fact that these were male preserves these I mean, I grew up in a newsroom at a, you know, about the same time. And so you must have you mean, we're in the metoo urine. Now, the things that the things that that are now. I think properly unacceptable pretty commonplace. Yeah. They were. And I, and you know, I just was chatting with a bunch of women my age about looking back on what we kind of put up with. And it it's interesting because you know, I'm lucky enough never to have been harassed in the way that so many of these women were, but you know, we all had experiences like my first boss whom I loved and it was now gone. You know, once told me after I had been at the star for he was a metro editor after I'd been at the store for while. You know, I only hired you because I thought you had good legs. But you turned out to be okay. And I came home that night. And I said to my husband, but whatever I just we didn't. I just knew that that was sort of the way it was and looking back. There's a lot of stuff we shouldn't have put up with. But we didn't have numbers we didn't have confidence in in the ways that women do now when I speak with my younger colleagues they much more confident than I was as a young woman because they're they're more them around. And we didn't have as many women to go to and we didn't have role models or mentors that was unheard of. And so it was just a very very different environment. And so I'm so glad that women now can talk to each other about things that we never did before. I. Conversation who would Judy Woodruff about her experiences being the weathergirl on local TV on her way up to becoming one of the first female White House correspondence? And you forget, you know, right. Totally what those what those days what those days were like. We you also do you must have done sort of like, we all did the the casual police stuff and covered covered. Cops five AM went to a went to a scene of a crime. And almost had to go out and throw up in the hallway. I'll never and the cops were very nice to me. But yeah, I did it. I did the copy I so it was it was journalism at newspapers is, you know, very well as an apprentice. Yes. Yeah. And you want to experience it all. And I'm sad that we're so segmented now in even in our digital world people cover certain things, so but but the way we grew up covering covering writing for newspaper was you did all kinds of things. I mean, my editor of the Washington store. Jim bellows, legendary legendary wonderful started a daily soap opera in the newspaper. And I was he picked me as one. Of the writers. We have seven writers it became a book called federal triangle, not even remaindered anymore. And we wrote it under a pseudonym called hardy mums one of the writers was Diana McClelland who used right the ear. Do you? Remember that Maureen was so we, and we segmented it, and we did it anonymously, and it was hilarious. And he had this great idea. So we did that and we so we did a little bit of everything. And it was just a great experience to be able to do that. Not just come in and say, I'm gonna you know, I when I came to the Tribune is right out of college. I knew a lot about politics than I had covered it for a local newspaper there. And my city editor was this guy named Bernie judge still around great mentor. And he said, you know, you know, everything about politics of the city prime more than anybody. I have. But you don't have to be a reporter you're going on nights. And I it was the greatest educate. That could ever have an I saw part of life that I never was exposed to. And you know, it did make me a better report..

"I know her, well, you know, I there is this conundrum for some of these new members because they campaigned and said they weren't going to vote for her. And now they're here. Right. And it's it no one knows who you voted for. Well, you know, the old mole Udal, I wanna thank this six the hundred twenty people who committed to vote for me in the sixty who actually. Yeah. But I mean, that's true. But I think a lot of them pledge not to vote for on the floor of that. I mean, tell me about her as a I look I think Nancy Pelosi and David, you know, this better than I do because you you went through the healthcare war without Nancy Pelosi wouldn't happen. Right. Wouldn't happen. Right. So she is an amazing vote counter. She knows how to get people together. She understands she's transitional she's seventy eight years old. She gets it. But wouldn't you want her on your side if at running if you've gotta bring generations together and try and get legislation through at least one or two, you know, how it was with health care. She was your guide dog, right? Listen, her determine the the president's determination was matched only by hers. And there was a period of time after Ted Kennedy died and after Democrats lost a special election in Massachusetts. When it looked like healthcare health reform was was was dead. And and she and the president and Harry Reid quietly mapped out a strategy to revive it and pass it, and and and she had to work very very hard to get her caucus to to go along with it because they they had to accept a Senate Bill that they didn't want because the Senate was not gonna vote again on this. And it was it was I have no, listen, there's no one within those four walls better than her at this process. And she knows that too. And I, but it's the outward facing piece that these, and that's it's it's it's going to be interesting to watch how she navigates us and how the caucus navigates this Trump deals with her because he doesn't deal with women very easily. So we'll we'll see how that goes. Yeah. Well, Rahm Emanuel always says. About Pelosi people need to remember. She's not a Pelosi. She's Adela, Sandra. She's the son of a Baltimore mayor and ward boss, and I I asked her on my pockets on this podcast. Once how what did you learn from growing up with dentures I learned how to count and and she she knows how to count does. She does and had a service the needs of all of her members and understanding what they yeah, I see I see the need for generational change there. I see the need. I see the problems of the members.

"I remember standing on the floor of the convention when Gerry Ferraro was nominated for vice president for vice president eighty four and getting chills because I thought this is the beginning of something only it really wasn't. But but things never go in a straight line. Exactly. Exactly. But I remember at that moment thinking, this is different. This is the beginning of something and being disappointed it time and time again and not only in politics, obviously. But but in. Every career. So so to see this happen in politics is really exciting. The the challenge now is to not judge women by different standard. You know, it's interesting. I I got a note kind of an angry note from a friend of mine, very very powerful. Women in business who said how can you call it? The year of the woman when you know, two women senators were defeated, but the fact is part of becoming of integrating women into the political presses that they're going to win and they're also going to lose. And there were obviously there's an Bill they'll be another additional woman Senator who come in this year because of what happened in Arizona, Nevada woman got elected. But would the the more? It becomes not unique. I think is is is progress, but the country the thing about these women candidates who came in so many of them were first time candidates first time politicians and the military a lot of them. Yeah. Yeah. They had credential. This Abigail span burger from the CIA. A right. No, it it was. I have to tell you. I've been brooding about the fact that I think in our own little panel last night. There was a rush to sort of kind of a rush to judgment about. What was going to happen last night? It turned out to be pretty inspiring knife. From the standpoint of hundred fourteen million people voted the these women and not just these women, but all over the country these stories of people who stepped up and said, you know, what I'm not going to sit on the couch. I'm going to get involved. I think an even these people who lost, you know, better Rourke was a inspiring story back. He will be and maybe sooner than we think there's an awful lot of pressure on him to to to take his act national Donald Trump today in this in this press conference tried to make it seem as if he was just fine with the Democrats take. Back the house. We had a, yeah, he tried to make it sound that way. But then he, but then he made it clear he wasn't fine. He wasn't fine with it doesn't want them exercising their oversight. Right. And he threatened to retaliate against them. And of course, now Jeff Sessions resigning or being fired. Actually, they're going to investigate it. So I thought Ron clean my old White House colleague wrote a good column in the post today in which he said, he thought Democrats should spend the first hundred days working on legislation to address some of these concerns about healthcare and other issues that their constituents voted. For them to deal with and I agree with that. But they may be forced to to act more quickly. Because if it looks like and it does look like the president's doing an end run. Well, Nancy Pelosi was very clear. I mean, you know, immediately, Donald Trump said, I effectively I can't work with you. If you decide to do your job, which is to oversight and Nancy Pelosi said, whatever we do. We'll do it the right way and in our own time shortly organized, and it's going to be you know, it's going to be within the within the rules. And so I I think Ron is. Right. And I think in Pelosi pointed out, look there are things maybe we can work together on like pre existing conditions, for example, pharmaceuticals drug prices infrastructure, get get those things done because their constituents care about that about drug prices, but you can walk and chew gum at the. Same time. Yes. I don't think Donald Trump can because he he he can't compartmentalize. And so and we saw that today. So I think that she will try and do it. But there's no doubt my mind at some point. It's just going to collapse. As long as we're on the subject would what of Pelosi, you know, her very very well..

"And I'm glad I didn't go actually knows politics discussed in the house. Politics was not a big issue in my house. My parents are Democrats were Democrats, and it was just kind of Sumed, but no not not really issues discussed local issues were discussed. My mother was very involved, but politics per se, not so much. I was the editor my highschool newspaper. You'll be surprised to learn. And so I was I was very involved with the politics of my high school, but but at home, it was sort of much more traditional than the way. My kids grew up in Washington DC where politics was discussed non stop. And you you were the editor of the newspaper. You were what drew you to that? What I think I've always been kind of gossip, and I like to ask questions the Ugandan herald was what it was. And and it was we we put it out. I think every couple of weeks and so. It was it was migrate experiment because I loved it so much in high school I knew and it was crazy that early on. But I just love the reporting, and I love the writing and I love causing the faculty to get upset with what we were doing. And nothing's really changed. And I went to college. I was in my college paper. So I kinda stuck with that. And my husband always says to me, you're so lucky because you knew what you wanted to do from day one. I'm not sure I did. But I liked it. And I still do speaking of diversity you brought some to Colgate. Went to school is like an all male. Preserve? I was in the very first class of women. I'm the oldest living female graduate of Colgate university. So I was in the first class of women there. And that's that's a a bold move. It was it. Well, it I loved the school. I was afraid of being a member of the first class. I actually wanted to go to Princeton. But I didn't get in. So Kobe was my second choice, and happily it I I ended up there. But it was very strange thing. You know, when you think back on it, and I've talked to a lot of women Colgate about its since. And Colgate now fifty one percent female they prepared for us by putting plastic flowers in the urinals in the men's bathroom, and they gave us irons in Arnie boards. And I remember my father turning to my mother and saying I'm not gonna leave her here. Do you know the other night we were sitting together on election night? You saw all of these. I mean, women really were a big part of the story. Women, you know, whole class new class of women coming to the house was their three or four women elected governors and women really driving the story that women voters in the in particular in suburban areas, and when we met women candidacies, generally, so I I asked you this in the context of of your own experience. I mean, how did you process that? Well, I I love it. I always think people turn to women when they need the mess. Cleaned up in many ways works that way in my house. And I think that now. Yeah. People are turning to women because they are different and they are offensive, and they provide something something new, and I think that when you see a hundred women now in congress. It's it's very exciting. I mean, I go back long enough to recall when women could not wear pants on the floor of the Senate when there was no ladies bathroom outside the the Senate chamber..

"That they are going to go with this narrative. Right. They never went with this narrative. With regard to Bernie Sanders. They never went with this narrative with regard to the the attempted attacks on Susan Collins, but they are going to go full-scale with these attacks on President Trump. So here's C N N's, Gloria borger saying, you know, Trump's targets is it a coincidence. President Trump attacked a bunch of people, and then those people get MIM bomb mail-bombs, you know, what we do in politics. We attacked people on the other side and their and their ideas. I tell people on the other side all the time does that mean, I'm calling for a bombing of their house. Of course, not and people who attacked me online or not calling for bombing of my house. That's not a thing. But here's Gloria borger blaming Trump. You know, these are names as you point out the come up all the time in his rallies. I mean, he's not particularly kind to Barack Obama either. So I think it would have behooved him to be a little bit more complete in about this. So now, we are going to conflict we're going to conflict President Trump ripping Barack Obama with President Trump calling for violence against Barack Obama. If that's the case then CNN calls for violence against Donald Trump every single day because CNN spends its days, ripping on President Trump. Now, we are conflicting criticism of political figures with a call for violence against those political figures. It's just this is bad stuff. You can you can condemn rhetoric you don't like without blaming it for violence, and yet as we'll see folks in the media and folks on the democratic side of the aisle are more than happy to you know, they like to use the word weaponized to weaponize politics in particular in this fashion in order to try and push for a ban, basically on their opposition. We'll talk about all of that in just one second. But first, let's talk about emergency. So emergencies are usually called emergencies because they strike without warning. Because you don't know anything about them in advance. And that's why you should prep now. In case, there is some sort of -mergency the government says that you really ought to have a supply of food and water in your home. And there's no question you should hurricane. Michael hit with very little warning with. Earthquakes? There is no warning. I live in California where this sort of thing happens relatively frequently. When it's breaking news. It's too late to prepare. Because now you have to scramble the best thing to do is prepare for -mergency situations while things are calm. Ask yourself if you actually have the supplies you need for your family if God forbid you have to be without for a couple of weeks if not right now go to my patriot supply and get a two week food kits to get you started this week, it's on special for just seventy five bucks.
