Kentucky voters reject amendment that would have ended right to an abortion. What it means for the deep-red state

"Mike. All the older surgeries. Yep. Aaron Ruth Hart said Republicans are really blaming Democrats for a maga trying to kill Pelosi's husband words fail. And he follows their words for a living. Aaron also tweeted, these are just bad human beings. There's no way to sugarcoat it. Nancy Pelosi's husband is currently fighting for his life after a brutal assault, perpetrated by a guy diluted by lies peddled by the likes of ronna mcdaniel. And she can't even lay off this stuff for one day That was her saying, let's fire Pelosi. No mention of even a pause for a thought or a prayer. Lincoln project said, first, they targeted governor Gretchen Whitmer, then they targeted the capitol. Now they've targeted Pelosi's family, political violence is a hallmark of the maga movement. We must put an end to it on November 8th. Yeah, let's do it. Let's take out the trumpster crush. What do you say? Listen, when you have campaign Obama, anything can happen, right? He is burning. Yeah, I feel like yes we can. That's what I'm feeling like, yeah. They want a gut, social programs. They want to cut social security Medicare, and then they want to give their rich friends a tax cut. Don't boo vote. And the reason I can say with confidence that they want to cut taxes for the wealthy and for corporations is because that's their answer to everything. When inflation is low. Texas. When unemployment is high, you gotta cut taxes. If there was an asteroid heading towards earth, they would all get a room and they'd say, you know what, we need? We need tax cuts for the last thing. That's good solving

"Little over a week away from the midterm elections. I talked to two people running for reelection in the house for their perspective on what's on the minds of voters. First, I spoke with Democrat Haley Stevens of Michigan. I'll tell you what. There's a lot of energy right now here in Michigan. We've got a semiconductor investments coming here to this state supply chains expanding people investing are workforces moving our kids are back at school. We beat tough times and we're continuing to lead the way, particularly on the zero emissions front David with electric vehicle, technologies, as well as higher hydrogen that's coming through here as well. So there's no question Congress got a lot done. Democrats got a lot down in Congress. Some of which you just referred to, some of the investments, for example, and semiconductors. And in infrastructure, at the same time, we do have an issue with inflation in the country. And just yesterday we were talking to Jared Bernstein from The White House. And when asked about the case for Democrats in this midterm, he said, basically, we have a lot of jobs. Do jobs beat inflation as an issue in Michigan right now? Well, look, we can't underestimate the global ramifications of inflation and what everyday michiganders, Americans are experiencing at the gas pump at the grocery store. We obviously got that inflation reduction at some of the initial steps that need to tackle price pressures that people are facing. But I want to be very clear. There are those of us who are going to move forward to fund the government. And I just think back to a few years ago, when I joined Congress in the middle of the longest government shutdown that I inherited from the previous Congress that was Republican run, longest government shutdown in history, costing our economy $11 billion. That's the question that we need to be asking right now. Are you paying lip service to some of the economic challenges we are facing, or are you offering solutions? And I'm Hailey Stevens. My sleeves are rolled up. I meet every single day with our manufacturers. But I'll tell you this. You're either offering solutions or you're complaining. We, as a democratic majority, have been offering those solutions. Let me actually offer up what I think a lot of Republicans are saying in terms of solutions, which is less spending less taxes and less regulation and that is a way to fight inflation. What is your response to that? It's not entirely implausible. Yeah, well, look, we had a tax bill that came down in 2017 and it saddled our middle class with lack of solutions and certainly sweets our teachers and our municipalities as well as sometimes even fire and police. I got into Congress and every community I talked to said that they were looking for public works, employees, and they were looking for fire and police because their bottom line had been sweet. And there's a fine balance, you know, as someone who manages the taxpayer dollar, passing a federal budget, we've got to use those taxpayer dollars effectively for proven outcomes that's investing in public education, which governor Gretchen Whitmer has done, which House Democrats did with the rescue Bill, getting our kids back to schools that constantly pays dividends to our treasury. And we need a plan for the future, investing in high skills, workforce development, making sure that we have school safety so that everyone can succeed on equal ground and those are things David. I would never bet against. And yet time and time again from the other side of the aisle, it's not real solutions. It's not proven strategies. It's just political gamesmanship. Congressman is another item on the agenda on the ballot this coming a midterm election. And beyond the candidates and that, of course, in Michigan is specifically abortion. Could you give us your sense about whether the fact that abortion will be on the ballot in Michigan might affect voter turnout? Well, I certainly am seeing a lot of energized individuals men and women alike. People who are participating in events to pass that what we're calling prop three that's proposal three on our ballot to codify abortion rights into our state constitution. And speaking of which, David, abortion rights are economic rights. And so you can't be railing for people's economic future without necessarily saying that women have the right to make their own healthcare decisions. We're still in the middle of an ongoing pandemic, which we are managing. It is not 2020, we're proud of our progress. But certainly what we got with the jobs decision was another major healthcare disruption, talk to our providers, talk to our doctors, talk to people who are pulling their hair off, thinking that they might be sued or, you know, if Gretchen Whitmer's opponent wins in a prosecutor is just a result of providing everyday care. So I'm optimistic about this proposal. I know that people are energized on both sides, but I think common sense is going to prevail and we're going to stick with the 50 year tradition that we had with roe V wade personal private healthcare decisions between a woman, her family, and her doctor. Thanks to congresswoman Haley Stevens of Michigan. Now for the view from the other side of the aisle, I spoke with Republican Brian style of Wisconsin. People are talking about how difficult it is to be able to afford the things that their families need gas prices continue to stay high. Grocery prices continue to climb. Home heating costs in states like Wisconsin are beginning to tick up as people are turning on their furnaces. People are finding it harder and harder to get by the number one issue inflation. We need to really turn the corner and put a check on the Biden administration to get inflation under control. You certainly hear a lot about inflation anywhere you talk in the country. At the same time, what about people having jobs? Because one of the responses we got are those White House, which I think might be fair as you know what? A lot of people have jobs that didn't have them when President Biden took over. Yeah, no, it's absolutely positive that we have a tight labor market. Of course, we're looking back and making comparisons to a period of time

"Debated against the Republican doctor mehmet Oz as they vie for a critical Senate seat. Watchers say federman who suffered a stroke in May was uneven at times, but the lieutenant governor says he is capable of doing the job. He spoke about abortion. If you believe that the choice of your reproductive freedom belongs with Doctor Oz, then you have a choice. But if you believe that the choice for abortion belongs between you and your doctor, that's what I fight for. Doctor Oz said he's against federal involvement in a woman's decision, but he supports what states decide. I want women, doctors, local, political leaders, letting the democracy that's always allowed our nation to thrive to put the best ideas forward. So states can decide for themselves. Meanwhile, a gubernatorial debate was held last night in Michigan. Governor Gretchen Whitmer declared her position on abortion, saying she'll be voting yes on a ballot initiative to protect abortion rights. A simple truth is the way to protect women and ensure that future generations have the same rights we've had for 49 years is by adopting proposal three and I will be a yes vote. Whitmer's Republican opponent Tudor Dixon argued that Michigan's proposal three is nothing like the roe V wade Supreme Court decision that stood for nearly 50 years. When governor Whitmer tells you that this is going to be row, it's not even close to row. It's not codifying row in our constitution. But it would be the most radical abortion law in the entire country. The only place that has something similar or China and North Korea. The debate was aired on WXYZ TV, a gubernatorial debate was also held in New York, sparring over crime, abortion, and the deadly U.S. capitol riot were some issues as democratic governor Kathy hochul faced a Republican challenger representative Lee zeldin in the campaign's only televised gubernatorial debate.

"Back to Nevada. Clark county sheriff Joe lombardo is the Republican candidate. He has run pretty much he's running pretty much even now. With Sicily in various polls. Lombardo in some polls is leading cis black by one, two percentage points. Again, this was a race that people weren't quite sure about. Just the news is now reporting that Michigan GOP gubernatorial nominee Tudor Dixon is now tied with Democrat incumbent governor Gretchen Whitmer. Now, how happy would you be to see Gretchen Whitmer retired? The Michigan news source and the Trafalgar poll just released, shows this neck and neck. This could be a Tulsa. Again, governor Gretchen Whitmer had no idea she was going to be in a competitive race. Meanwhile, in Arizona, the Republican gubernatorial candidate Carrie Lake there. Mike Gallagher just left Phoenix for one of the battleground tour, stops there. Carrie Lake is Islam. Her Democrat opponent, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, because Hobbes refused to show up for a long schedule debate. And we're seeing that in a lot of races around the country where Democrats simply don't want to be on the debate stage with their Republican opponent. In Pennsylvania, for example, you may have heard John fetterman is making all kind of excuses, saying that Doctor Oz is a TV personality. He has the advantage. He's on TV a lot. Of course, saying that he's going to need his monitors in order to read the question. Which leads me to the question of how can you be running to be in the U.S. Senate, and you need a device to read the questions from?

"I'm Charlie palette that Joe Matthew is a Bloomberg business flash. All right, Charlie, thank you. You couldn't escape last night. The references to Trump to January 6th to election denying in Wisconsin it was the second round for Ron Johnson Mandela Barnes the Senate debate in January 6th was at hand, you'll hear Johnson followed by Barnes here. I immediately enforced repeatedly condemned the violence from January 6th, unlike my opponent, it has to be said that he called those folks patriots. He caught them tourists, the people who were beaten up police officers in the United States Capitol. The people that were there to protect him. And it wasn't just in that debate. It was top of mind in a gubernatorial debate, but that's where we are with Trump picked candidates out there, look no further than Tudor Dixon, who was, of course, debating last night with governor Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan. I think it's really ironic when misses Dixon stands here and says that she will accept the vote, the will of the people. This is a candidate who still denies the outcome of the 2020 election. This is a candidate who will not pledge to accept the outcome of the November 8th election. Never mind. 2024 and what might follow. Riot take back with his Bloomberg's national politics reporter and he's done a great job covering the sort of election deny or aspect to this midterm race. In fact, he's been following them very closely and I know you recent one 14 Republican candidates actively fought to overturn the 20 election. Ryan welcome. Ron Johnson was not one of those 14. But if you watch that debate last night, you might have wondered. How important has this election denying a storyline been when we see some candidates run away from it and others embrace it? Johnson's in a weird position because he was a senator who said ahead of January 6th that he would object to certification after the violence broke out, he actually reversed course and voted to certify. And so where he's getting hit here is some of his remarks where he's not totally condemned it and is a little loose, but we actually didn't include him on our list because at the end of the day he did certify the election. Understood. Tudor Dixon is a different type of candidate. And one that much more fits the maga moles. She's embraced that, right? Yeah, as she is during the election, right after the election, she was on social media tweeting heavily about how this was their fraud and whatnot. In the primary, she was embracing that when it looked like she was going to win the primary shortly before the primary was over. She came out and tried to start backpedaling it before she'd actually got the nomination. She took a hit from the right on that. But she's also been in kind of an awkward position there, not fully able to walk away from it because it's a really hard thing to walk away from. And so Whitmer is using that as a cudgel against her. That said, it's not a huge issue in these two races as much as it is in some other races. Well, that's fair enough. We haven't talked about the Doug mastriano of the world in this conversation, but you've been looking down ballot as well. And I don't know if that's what you're leading us to Ryan, but it's pretty important when you consider the Secretary of State races that we're going to watch unfold in a couple of weeks here where we could have maga and election denying that goes way beyond a guy named Donald Trump where we could have actual officials running the electoral system inside states who believe that the 20 election was stolen. Right. And that will be those are the ones that I'm the most closely watching. The governor is race in Wisconsin and the Secretary of State races in Nevada and Arizona and in Minnesota. And then the governor of Pennsylvania obviously appoints the Secretary of State there. But mastery Ono appears to be losing so he's not one of the ones that I'm watching super closely at the moment. Pretty incredible. What do you expect tonight in Georgia? Is it possible to predict what's going to happen on that stage, Herschel Walker and the reverend? This is as close to like when Trump was on the debate stage. And you really just didn't know. This is not a professional politician. As he reminds us on a near daily basis, and so really anything could happen. He is, it is definitely going to be a contrast debate because, I mean, literally a rev. Oh boy, somebody got in the way of what Ryan was saying. Come on back, Ryan. I wanted to hear you finish that because I'm pretty sure I know where you're going there. Although, if you have been listening to this program recently, Republican leadership, by way of senator Rick Scott, has been ready to roll with the oppo on reverend Warnock. They say that he abused his wife and there's been a lot of stuff out there. Whether Herschel Walker goes there is another question and whether Raphael Warnock goes on the offense is another one as well. Did we lose Ryan? I guess we're not getting them back.

"Campaign 2022 on WTO, voters in 5 states held primaries Tuesday, Arizona, Michigan, Missouri, Washington and Kansas voters are selecting their candidates for the November general election. In Kansas, voters there are protecting the right to get an abortion in that state, rejecting a measure that would have allowed the Republican controlled state legislature a legislature to tighten abortion restrictions or ban them completely more than 62% voted no on the referendum. In Michigan, Tudor Dixon has won the Republican primary for governor. She has former president Donald Trump's endorsement. She will run against governor Gretchen Whitmer in November, in Missouri, Missouri attorney general Eric Schmidt defeated scandal scarred former governor Eric greitens and his primary race for U.S. Senate. Grinds resigned four years ago in the midst of a sex scandal, two criminal charges that were eventually dropped amid a very real risk of impeachment. This year, his ex-wife accused him of abuse. Two Arizona Republicans recruited to help former president Donald Trump stay in office after his 2020 election defeat, told one of his lawyers they feared their actions could be viewed as treasonous. The New York Times reviewed emails, which indicated that Arizona Republican Party chair Kelly ward and state senator Kelly Townsend were concerned about the legality of a plan to present a fake slate of electors claiming that mister Trump had won Arizona or ultimately did not sign on to the fake electors scheme while Townsend did not. Both women have been subpoenaed by the Justice Department for information about the fake electors scheme and the documents detailing their communications with the Trump legal team. Knew this morning, a watchdog group wants a Justice Department to investigate top to far and Defense Department and army officials who wipe their cell phones at the end of the Trump administration. They say they literally did text from some of the key witnesses surrounding the capitol riot on January 6th. CNN reports that freedom of information act lawsuit brought by American oversight acknowledged that the phones were wiped and the text messages messages were not preserved. They filed FOI requests for records from several top Pentagon officials, just days after the January 6th attack, there is no suggestion that the officials themselves erased the record.

That was part of the plot to kill governor Gretchen Whitmer, plan a was to hang democratic lawmakers out of the out of the windows of the buildings.

The beliefs that liberals are fundamentally evil, that they must be eliminated, that the should be killed, that they should have people hung in the day of the noose where they go around, you know, that, by the way, was a scenario that came from the guy who wrote the book the Turner diaries. The Timothy McVeigh used to blow up the Oklahoma City building, where they go around and they were going to look for Jews and liberals and whites that supported blacks and hang them from street posts, right? That was part of the plot to kill governor Gretchen Whitmer, plan a was to hang democratic lawmakers out of the out of the windows of the buildings. When they say they bought that scaffold to the capitol as a piece of performance art, I have no doubt they would have hung my pants from it. They would have killed him. And we are at the point where our political opponents here mean us harm.

"In a stunning defeat for the Biden Justice Department, a jury has acquitted two men, accused of conspiring to kidnap Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer in the fall of 2020. The jury also deadlocked on a verdict for two other defendants, which meant a hung jury, a mistrial. So another way to put it is the DoJ in one of the most high profile terrorism cases. In which they put enormous resources, they could not convict a single defendant.

"Brian shook You're listening to Bloomberg law with June Grasso from Bloomberg radio I've been talking to former U.S. attorney Matthew Schneider of honigman about the trial of four men accused of conspiring to kidnap Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer So the defense raised the defense of entrapment They said that the FBI tricked the defendants into agreeing to the plot to kidnap whitner and the FBI drove the whole thing So tell us about that defense So what we know so far is that the defense originally in the opening statements didn't really touch this entrapment They just kind of nibbled around the edges At some point in the openings it became clear that that's really what they were talking about And then entrapment defense is saying essentially I'm not the one who came up with this idea I'm not the one who really wanted to do this And but for the government I wouldn't have done this I wouldn't have tried to put this plan into place except for the government goading me on And some of these defendants have said that they really had no experience in tactical training and using weapons but Dan this undercover FBI informant is the one who trained them And he's the one who encouraged them So that's the entrapment defense And the government of course and is going to use the jury instruction for entrapment And there is signs in there that the government can point to to say that you weren't entrapped And that's really based on the fact that the defendants were what they call predisposed to commit the crime That means they already had this thought in their mind before the government introduced the undercover agents And under the law if you have that predisposition then entrapment is not a valid defense Is it a high risk strategy to defend based on entrapment because you're conceding that some crimes may have been committed It is because it's an informative defense where you have to admit to certain things but say similar to self defense say I did this however Now it's important to note that as this trial has played out it's not as clear cut as the government has thought in my opinion because entrapment is not the only defense There is a separate defense that is being laid out by at least one of the defendants to say that this is all really big talk We did not intend this but we talked really big And we came up with some wild ideas and the defense is going to explain the fact that we talked about what are some ways we could go and take out governor Whitmer Well one way is we could all sneak over to our House and we could hide in the Woods and we could bark like animals and then she would come out because she cares about animals Another thing that they talked about was well we could cut all the trees down between Indiana and Michigan because that would create a stir and would prevent people from getting into the state Or we could tie a kite to the governor and fly over Lake Michigan Now that's all nonsense right That's not going to work and the defense in this case is look they said all these things when they were drunk and when they were stoned Another thing that they said was we're going to kidnap her And so all of this is in one big pot we didn't mean it And it's all just a bunch of big talk And therefore their strategy is where big talkers we didn't mean it We couldn't actually accomplish this and you should find us not guilty The fact that there are four defendants here are their defenses united you said that one of the defense attorneys brought up this crazy talk So how does it play that there are four of them So there's four defendants in each of them gets an opportunity to speak as questions give their opening statements That's how the openings played out Now let's see what happens in the closings right Are they all going to latch onto that defense Will they all be in the entrapment defense that we know All four of them have already said we'll plead and trap them But will they all argue these other kind of stone crazy delusions and that's why we did it Well they argue that that really remains to be seen And we won't know for weeks because this trial will probably take at least four to 6 weeks to get through But will the jury distinguish one defendant from the other for something like if they're sitting there and this wild talk a plan to put a kite on Whitmer or whatever Will the jury really distinguish one from the other or will the defense is sort of bleed into one another So normally juries do take the time and effort to go one by one through each descendant and find this defendant with these elements either dead or did not commit this crime And there will be plenty of time for jury deliberations to do that Sometimes people fear that if you're if you're in a group of people who are committing crimes then there's guilt by association I have found in my experience that jurors are quite smart They're quite intelligent and they're able to parse out who did what and who did not do what So I think we'll be able to see a jury that is able to do that Let's talk about some of the witnesses to insiders who turn states evidence seem to be important for the government That's true So there are two defendants who were charged in this case but they've pleaded guilty And now they're cooperating for the government And they've committed crimes and they are going to admit that and explain what happened And the government's theory on this is that the best way to know what happens in a secret conspiracy is to actually get one of the members of the conspiracy to come out and explain what happened And these people were insiders who can say I was in that room I was part of those conversations I know what happened and here's what actually took place The defense on these types of cases is always the same You're a liar And the reason why you're testifying is for one reason and that's because you've been convicted of a crime and if you testify and you give the government what they want then they will give you a break and they will cut your sentence and they will reduce the amount of time that you have to spend in prison If you even go to prison And so the defense will.
