I'm joined by Maybe season as delicate terra. It has come to Harris even got a fist bump or two yesterday. Tell us about her day at the Capitol. Got straight. She did get a few fists on one of them from Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham yesterday as they were quizzing the grilling rather, the big tech CEOs of Twitter and Facebook during that Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. She did return to the capital for the first time as vice president elect, and probably the most interesting thing to come out of that with the fact that she received a classified intelligence briefing in her capacity of senator which is interesting because she So far in her capacity as vice president elect has not been able to receive those briefings because the General Services Administration refuses to recognize her and Joe Biden as the president elected by President elect the General Services Administration being the body that kind of overseas the transition, so because of that, she and Joe Biden have not been able to receive that class of those classified intelligence briefings. But she did get a briefing yesterday in her capacity of Senator is does the GS to act on their own earthy at the behest of the president, who has refused to concede or accept the fact that this is a new administration coming in? So they technically act on their own. But there is certainly concerns. There are concerns that there could be you know political influence there and that the G s a is kind of doing that the president's bidding and then until President Trump decides to concede that they won't do it, either, But they do maintain that they are One of their own thing on act independently. I was Senator Chuck Grassley, who has said President elect Biden should be getting those classified intelligence briefings from the Trump administration. We learned yesterday has tested positive for covert 19. That's right. Yes, that's some bad news there. Senator Chuck Grassley, who is the most senior Republican in the Senate. He's just the second oldest senator of the oldest actually being Dianne Feinstein, who's just a few months older, but he is the most senior Republican. He's 87 years old, so high risk demographic there for covert 19, but his office does say he's not experiencing any symptoms. So that's good news. They don't know how he contract ID the virus. The concern is that he was on the floor of the Senate voting on Today, and he was also part of Ah closed door hearing or meeting rather with Republican leadership. People who were in that meeting, though, said that you know, Grassley has been really good about wearing a mask that everybody in that meeting was wearing a mask. But they're not too concerned about having contracting the virus. But he is, you know, the second this week that has announced that he is now isolating. After a possible covert exposure. The first being Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, certainly wish them the best. Thank you so much as always say, and that's a bee season as delicate era in Washington. Come

He did wrapping up because I know time is precious. You've been famously on Twitter for years, and your first tweet was from November two thousand seven that was before I tweeted that's before a lot of reporters. I knew tweeted near two thousand twelve tweet assumed dear dead is one of the the all time classics of the political genre. I know you've talked about being on Twitter and reaching your constituents. Why did you decide to get on so early for the same reason I decided to have satellite communication with my constituents on public television from here they could call in or questions? I same reason that maybe my staff, I don't remember this. But my staff was said, I was one of the first senators make use of the fax machine. Now, you don't even want to fax machine is. Museums or or or doctors offices, actually in other words, I hold town means like, you know, and each one of the ninety nine counties every Cuban a whatever you can do to get your message out, whatever you can do to encourage constituents to react to what you have dialogue is the essence of Representative government and Twitter's just one way of getting some dial. Like, I guess what I'm curious about was was there Senator Chuck Grassley at eleven o'clock at night logging onto Twitter did a staff member tell you about it or or. Yeah, you there's no way what ten years ago, even at age seventy five I'm not sure I'd be alerted to it. But but I like it now. And I'm glad some staffers was inventive enough to get me on it. There are they're the same ones that got me on the fax machine. Maybe generational a little different. There are younger members of.

So you can watch my corn watch as an example. That's it's hot social twenty three weeks of go back and look at each one of them. So you can find out how corn goes from putting seed in the ground to put an in at the local elevator. Senator I promise you we will include links to that in our in our show notes for this podcast last question. We were talking about this before we started recording. You were elected to the Senate in nineteen eighty you have had this job as long as I've been alive. Now, I've talked to your colleagues we even talked a little bit about this too about the golden age of congress feels like. It's passed. Was there a window in your thirty eight years in the Senate where you felt like things were were great because even ten years ago, there were certainly a lot of partisanship. It's a lot different now. Then when I came, but it the evolution happened. So slowly, maybe a little faster in the last ten years that it's hard for me to give you a window. I could give you a window on judges becoming so controversial. But generally speaking, it's kind of like, you know, you put a frog and cold water heated up to a boil and they die. But you throw them in the boiling water. They jump out it happened. So slowly that I I wouldn't want to say you talk about the frog in the boiling water. How does the water get cooled down? Is it even possible at this point? It's got to be possible for all. I don't think the country's going to be is ideal. Divided as grassroots forever. Like it is now.

You have a number of new responsibilities including your president pro tempore of of the Senate. This is significant responsibility or fourth in line now for succession to the president. I'm curious what in your realm of new responsibilities has been most interesting or surprising to you. As president pro tem. I think the number of duties that the code requires that really has not a lot of discretion. It's mostly ministerial. Title or maybe say ceremonial, but really if you summed it up, the president of the Senate is the vice president United States, but as you probably know in the last seventy years, I think starting with Nixon when he was vice president vice presidents haven't presided over the Senate or be involved in the Senate very much except for vote breaking ties and in ceremonial things. So I like to summit up that president pro tem outside of being in presidential succession, does whatever the president of the United States or the vice president of the United States does as president Senate only you do it when he's not here, which is about ninety nine percent of the time. Does your staff now call you Mr President behind closed doors? No. No, they call me. Chuck, I I'm not at that level. So have to refer to you. As Senator Grassley, your chairman again for the third time of the Senate finance committee after giving up leadership of the judiciary committee. I'm curious why you decided to come back..

And the only thing that I I might add is the uranium one debacle. You know, we had a we imple- traded Putin's network. You know that Hillary got the kickbacks to the Clinton foundation. You know that Robert Muller just happened to be the FBI director, and the FBI imple- trader was informing his bosses that bribery, extortion, money laundering, and kickbacks. We're going on and they still approved that uranium one deal. Twenty percent of our uranium, you know, ending up really in Putin's hands. Everything good. Donny w- people on your program believed is that when it came to Clinton misconduct. There was really no effort to find the truth that the people investigating Clinton headed out for Trump and wanted her to win that defies a warrant was more political than it was legal. And that that whole group got a pass and that they're going after Trump like there's no tomorrow. And I don't know how you tell people that they're not right to believe that I'm gonna have to let you go here. Senator we do appreciate what you're doing.

"She's very smart to be careful about how she how she goes about this and the I want to read you something that dean Heller Republican Senator from Nevada said today on a conference call that has now been reported a conference call to Nevada Republicans. And this is this is certainly inside look at how the men certainly of the Republican party in the Senate. See this. He said, we got a little hiccup here with the cabinet nomination. We'll get. Through this and we'll get off to the races. And so for him, it's a little hiccup, not exactly. I mean, look, she. She would be coming before a committee that includes Senator Lindsey, Graham who has called this drive by shooting. We certainly have heard from Senator hatch who thinks somehow she's just mixed up. So it's not that she's coming before a group of people who are impartial, who actually want to get to the truth is they wanted to get to the truth, they'd let the FBI investigate this this she's asked. But instead they are trying to jam this nomination through his we seen and many people have talked about, there is no rush to do this. It's the only rushes their political rush. When you look at Merrick, garland, who, of course was nominated and spent three hundred days trying to keep from actually entertaining his nomination. So I think that this is a committee that is already stacked against her politically and they are looking to jam her to bully her. And I think she is wise to be really smart and buffalo about how she. How she goes through this process. I mean to say, we have to have you here Monday at ten AM, right. Oh, by the way, make sure you have all of your your whole written statement for us. Friday at ten AM is to say, we don't want your best testimony. We don't want you prepared. We don't want you rested. We don't want you to get outside of trouble of madness that you've been captured in by the glare of this story since it became public and there is Susan Collins, encouraging. All of this Susan Collins is encouraging all of Chuck Grassley bullying here. It's been very discouraging to see what senators have sad and treating her with suspicion as opposed to someone who's actually try coming forward and doing her civic duty to talk about someone who is being nominated, not just for an average judgeship for a lifetime appointment of the supreme court. And I think the important thing to Lawrence and I know you're picking up on this because everyone is women are paying attention. And if anyone on that committee thinks that women aren't noticing this, they should just wait till November six because. Women are upset. They're sick of seeing women bullied. They're sick of seeing women not being treated with fairness and listening to our stories. So I hope I hope the Republicans on this committee are really, really thinking carefully about how they tweet this woman, sue Richards. Thank you very much. Really appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

"You noted one of the reasons which is she asked that the FBI do its investigation. I and the tapes that you just ran show that Senator Grassley and Senator hatch. Both talked about that being a long standing precedent that being the obvious first step and exactly what needs to happen next, regardless Chuck Grassley is denying Dr. Blazey Ford that and apparently the administration is denying it as well. And I think that will cause a lot of people to wonder why, why don't they want the FBI to go out in investigate these claims? Dr blazey Ford wants to investigate it. But the second thing that chairman Grassley is doing to treat her even worse than need a hill is he is saying that only two people can testify only Dr blazey Ford and Brad Kavanagh that is worse treatment than Nita hill received. There were outside. Witnesses that she was able to call that corroborated her account. They are not allowing Dr forge do the same thing, which really shows what are they hiding. It really causes that to come into light that as bad as hill was treated, that that they're doing even worse to Dr blazey Ford. And the question is, why, what are they hiding or wanna rude. A doctor Ford's lawyers response to Senator Grassley tonight issued a statement saying the committee's stated plan to move forward with a hearing that has only two witnesses is not a fair or good faith investigation. There are multiple witnesses whose names have appeared publicly and should be included in any preceding. The rush to a hearing is unnecessary and contrary to the committee discovering the truth. And Lisa, as Christine just said a point I've made the, they are offering a doctor Ford much worse terms much worse circumstance than than they offered a. Anita hill, and we know how badly the Anita hill hearing went, and you would think that this committee had learned something from that, but it seems like what they learned from it was don't even be as fair to the witness as we were needed help. Well, it's really shocking as Christine said. And as you point out, they've concocted some idea that it's unprecedented to seek FBI follow on set of work by the FBI supplemental background investigation to examine this when their own words reveal how false those statements are. And the department of Justice's complicit in echoing them that this is somehow outside the purview of the background instigation, Christine. And I between us, read hundreds of f. b. i. files. We know this is not how this process works. The American people are being lied to by Senator Grassley about this process. And I was shocked to have him suggest that this was some sort of separation of powers issue that they couldn't commandeer the executive branch to do this investigation. The fact is is that there's never been a time in which a ranking member and chairman have not agreed to request information in circumstances like this where further investigation is obviously necessary and Lord knows that Brett cabinet has time on his hands. He spent the last three days in Scots at the White House doing murder board basically to try to figure out what he's going to say, what level umbrage he's going to take how he's going to answer questions about something he claims. He doesn't know anything about. He could have been interviewed already, but the chairman is singularly standing in the way of that precedent, and he's lying to the public about this. And presumably the other members of that committee, Jeff flake is being sold a Bill of goods. If he believes Senator Grassley about the precedent on this committee, what's unprecedented is to have this matter not go back to the FBI for further investigation by people were professionals and know how to do just that Christine. We're now seeing in effect, Jeff flake and Susan Collins gang up on Dr Ford saying, well, of course she should show up on. Sunday at ten AM as if there's absolutely no other space on the calendar for this. Yeah, it's absurd that this would have to happen next Monday. What would happen in the normal course of a bipartisan process is that the chair and ranking would work with the witnesses to make sure that they could make what I found surprising this week is you had chairman grasp Grassley announce that she was coming when we now know that there was no agreement. There was no back and forth discussion with her to accommodate this survivor of sexual assault. So it just seems like a completely different process than Lisa or I were involved in when we.

"I mean, reporters and media organizations who should know better how many of them will just stick their microphones out there and let Chuck Grassley get away with any lie. He wants to tell about there being no time for an FBI investigation. This is when voters need the news media because voters cannot drop everything they're doing at work and rush to Washington and occupy the halls of the Russell Senate office building or the jerk that Senate office building and tell those senators how they feel it is the Washington press corps. Now that has a job to do and it's important job and only they can do it and that job is not to simply facilitate and pass along the out, right? Lies of Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch. And now all of the Republican senators who are all lying. About the fact that there's no time for an FBI investigation. The news media's job now is to penetrate an expose that lie that is ally and any member of the news media who accepts that lie unchallenged by any Republican member of the Senate is complicit in that lie, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee is on his way to committing a crime against the truth in his committee, and I'm no longer sure that Chuck Grassley even knows that I'm no longer sure. Check wrestling has any memory of a single word. He said during the Clarence Thomas hearings I worked with Chuck Grassley when I was on the democratic staff of the Senate finance committee and the nine hundred ninety s and on that committee Chuck Grassley was always a reasonable if occasionally cantankerous participants in the committee's work and he almost always voted against everything. I was trying to move through that committee, but I never doubted Chuck Grassley integrity and has worked on the finance committee at that time. But I am sorry to say Chuck. Grassley has stayed in the Senate way too long. Listen, listen to this. Listen to the very first words. The Chuck Grassley the chairman of the judiciary committee spoke today when he was asked why he opposed an FBI investigation this time. So you guys and gals all understand maybe I'm not say guys in cal-. Maybe I better say men and women. Yes. Undergrad sling, it's twenty eighteen. We call them women now. Journey eras gushing.

On the democratic side, she was deputy assistant attorney general in the department of Justice and Christine. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. At least it has been with us before and I, it is just the time when we need the expertise of former staffers on the Senate Judiciary committee to guide us through where we are now, and I want to get your reaction to the Republicans on this committee now all now, including Jeff flake who seemed to be a sounding reasonable early in the week, holding onto this position that there's absolutely no time for an FBI investigation. Lawrence, I think you're right. I think it's absurd. And as you set up the contrast as bad as Anita hill was treated by the Senate Judiciary committee in nine hundred ninety. One doctor blade.

Chuck Grassley is pretending. That he has given Dr Ford options the option to testify privately, which is not something she has requested or the option to testify publicly. That's a way of pretending that Dr Ford has some menu of multiple choice in front of her about how to do this. But the option that she wants is more time because she and her family have essentially become fugitives trying to avoid the glare of this story in the death threats that come with it, and she wants what Anita hill got. She wants an FBI investigation. She wants a basic decent approach to this subject. I by the FBI Chuck Grassley won't do that. Chuck Grassley says no FBI investigation.

"Thomas were investigated by the FBI and at the time everyone thought that was a reasonable thing to do. It was the only thing to do and the FBI investigation only took a couple of days. No-one said, we don't have time for an f. b. i. investigation. And no one said that because no one would have believed it back then it would have been like standing up in the Senate and saying, the earth was flat. Everyone in the Senate knows there is no deadline for a committee confirmation vote in. There is no deadline for confirmation vote by the full Senate. Chuck Grassley is trying now to pretend there is some kind of deadline that does not allow time for an FBI investigation that we know only takes a couple of days and the very best witness against Chuck Grassley on this lie. Is Chuck wrestling. Now wins the chairman of the judiciary committee. And when the ranking member of the judiciary committee learned of these allegations, the FBI was immediately ordered to conduct an investigation. That investigation was completed before the Senate Judiciary committee voted on Friday, September the twenty seventh nineteen Ninety-one. Chuck wrestling when the chairman of the judiciary committee and when the ranking member of the judiciary committee learned of Anita, Hill's accusations. The FBI was immediately ordered to conduct an investigation and Chuck Grassley thought that that was exactly the right thing to do back when he was a junior member of the judiciary committee. Orrin Hatch was on the judiciary committee when Anita hill testified, he could not resist poring over the details publicly of the pornography that Anita hill says, Clarence Thomas told her about at work Senator hatch gained enough seniority in the Senate to eventually become chairman of the judiciary committee before he moved on to become chairman of another committee. And here is what Orrin Hatch said. About the FBI investigation of a need, a hills, accusations. Chairman button. And the ranking member Thurman. When they heard about this. The first time they immediately ordered to set the FBI investigation, which was a very right thing to do so appropriate thing to do. They did what every other chairman and ranking member of done in the past. And the investigation was done, and it was a good investigation. They immediately ordered this FBI investigation, which was very right thing to do. That is kind of uniquely Orrin Hatch verbiage a very right thing to do. It's the appropriate thing to do. They did that they did what every other chairman and ranking member have done in the past and what are in hatch said there was true. It was true vent, it's true now, but Orrin Hatch won't say it now. Now when these two old men of the Senate Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley lie to us. Now they lie as if they don't know that the video still exists. They lie as if they have forgotten. There is a congressional record of every word they've ever spoken in the committee and on the Senate floor, Chuck Grassley Orrin Hatch. Both believed that an FBI investigation that only lasted a few days was the appropriate thing to do in response to a Nieta hills accusations. And now they're saying there is no reason to do that. Before hearing Dr Ford's testimony. This means that Senator Grassley invitation to Dr Ford to testify to the committee is being issued with malice. Chuck Grassley won't even give her what he thought was appropriate for Anita hill. Before he then abused Nita hill. He personally did in that hearing and we saw what they did to a hill. We saw what those Republican senators did need a hill when she came into their hearing room. Dr. Ford says, Brett cavenaugh sexually assaulted her tried to rape her. She believes Brett Cavanaugh says that never happened. Nothing like it ever happened. One of them. One of those two people wants the f. b. i. to investigate in the other one doesn't. Why isn't Brett Kavanagh demanding an FBI investigation? Why? Why not? Why doesn't Brett cavenaugh want to submit to the best professional investigators we have and why does Dr Ford want to submit to an investigation investigation by the FBI? Why does she want to do that? And why are the Republicans in the Senate want to save Brett capital from ever facing an FBI question about this?.
