Servicemembers dad are setting up the first big congressional oversight probe off the current white house the by administration had been fielding questions from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle about the afghanistan withdrawal since the august thirty first deadline was set back in april but the requests for documents and testimony ratcheted up after the taliban took control of kabul on august fourteenth and intensified further after the deadly suicide bombing at the hamad karzai airport on august twenty. Sixth the push for accountability is coming from both political parties but differences in approach between democrats and republicans are already setting the stage for a pitched partisan battle for democrats. The fight will reveal whether their loyalties lie with party or with truth after they spent four years criticizing republicans for not conducting rigorous oversight of president donald trump for republicans. This moment marks an opportunity to attack. The biden administration after a series of decisions led to a speedy taliban takeover that put both us citizens and afghans endanger the congressional fight will be waged on both substance and process democrats control both chambers of congress so republicans don't have the power to issue subpoenas or call for testimony on their own and recent years.

"Now it's time for the last word. we're alabama. She is in for lawrence tonight. Could you went on friday. Friday's today that the pillow guy says that the president of vice president to resign and the last the previous guys going to become the president again. He he's put out the date. I am totally going to launder my blazer. Because that's going to be a big day because that might be what chat about some friday night. I don't think so. Katie benner is the soundtrack to the survival of democracy. You know we're getting most of our information from her. But i i'm curious about one thing she said to about the i. G report of necessity is methodical and thorough and could take a year and as you get more information about the fact that this was a plan. This insurrection attempt co attempt was a real plan. How do we. How do we translate that. How do we sit around and wait for a year. For a inspector general's report about the fact that donald trump was calling up people in sync. Flip this election for me right exactly. I mean there's i appreciate this sort of balanced that she's talking about that when you were talking about people having committed crimes in a political context in this case trying to overthrow the government and gives somebody in power. We don't criminalize politics. You can't however commit a crime in a political context but it has to be sort of approached so methodically so it doesn't seem like we're becoming the kind of country that if you get voted out of office you then naturally end in jail. That hostile only happens if you are definitely committing crimes while you are a politician. And so there is a certain. There's a sort of balance inherent small conservatism there. But mira carlin's has a justice department. Where all of these former high ranking officials may have participated in very serious crimes and the justice department has to self police. It's own officials in a way that fix that faster than any criminal court proceeding could as you said. He walked into a crime scene every day. Thank you my friend. We'll see you tomorrow. Rachel thankfully breakings tonight. We have new details on the abrupt resignation of a united states attorney just weeks before. Donald trump left office today during three hours of testimony before the senate judiciary committee. Bj pack the former united states attorney for the northern district of georgia explained. His unexpected departure. Trump was upset. That pack would lie for him. Katie better of the new york times reports. Bj pack quote told the senate panel the donald trump had been dismayed that mr pack had investigated allegations of voter fraud and fulton county georgia and not found evidence to support them. According to a person familiar with the statements. Mr pack testified. The top department officials had made clear that mr trump intended to fire him over his refusal to say that the results in georgia had been undermined by voter fraud. The person said resigning would preempt a public dismissal end quote. Bj is the third government official to testify before the senate judiciary committee about donald trump's efforts to abuse the justice department for his personal gain. Now that's not good for the former president but it's also frustrating because once again we hear about something that sounds like criminal behavior by donald trump and so far. He has not been held accountable for that behavior which goes to a bigger point on accountability in the wake of the twenty twenty election trump told his supporters to attack the capital on january six. He used his election lies lies that he wanted. Bj pack and others to spread to propel those protesters to action to incite an insurrection. More than five hundred fifty people face federal charges for invading the capital. But are those charges actually enough to prevent another insurrection. That's actually the concern of chief. Us district judge barrel howl during a plea hearing two weeks ago. Judge how will ask why a defended who terrorized members of congress was getting off merely on a misdemeanor quote. Does the government in agreeing to the petty offense in this case have any concern about deterrence and quote any concern about deterrence for the capital attackers. What about donald troub- who egged them to go there. What about donald. Trump's lost cause alleys which are still pushing that same lie that incited the coup attempt from both inside and outside the capitol. Do we as a country have any concern about deterrence for insurrections deterrence for donald trump. Who still filling our politics with his lies deterrence for the next donald trump and the bad actors like russia who to help american democracy to fail. This is not about punishing the past as valuable as that may be. It is actually about protecting the future. It's about protecting american democracy which became which came perilously close to being undermined on monday in a different capital riot case judge how will question the financial consequences the consequences that the rioters face quote. I have found the damage amount of less than one point. Five million dollars when all of us. American taxpayers are about to foot the bill for close to half a billion dollars a little bit surprising see last month. Congress passed a two point. One billion dollar security bill to secure funding for the us capital and the capitol police. That's why we the taxpayers are paying to ensure that another january six doesn't happen but what good does that protection do. If the criminals who attacked the capital are not sufficiently punished. What good does that protection do. If the man who incited the insurrection is never held accountable..

R. congressional reporter Claudia Claudia Greece Alice's here good morning good morning okay so forty one members of this committee there on that big semi circular diets what they actually do in this hearing today so this will look a lot like a court trial with lawyers for the Democrats and Republicans on the Judiciary Committee who will offer their opening arguments in this case and they'll be able to speak up to thirty minutes each they'll be followed by Democrats and Republicans for the house intelligence committee will present their findings from the witness table for this portion of the hearing each side will have about forty five minutes each there and Democrats are pretty confident they're presenting a solid case Jerry Nadler said if this was an actual court trial trump would be convicted quickly let's take a listen to his comments on CNN yesterday we have a very large so in case I think the case we have is presented to a jury would be a guilty verdict in about three minutes flat now we should note that judiciary ranking member Republican Doug Collins this weekend said this hearing should be delayed because the panel is moving too fast with too much information okay so democratic lawyers on the committee Republican lawyers on the committee they make their cases they their case what were their rules under the Judiciary Committee that the White House could send its lawyers in this yes they could but for now we're not expecting to hear much from them as part of the actual proceeding this is more of the same that we've heard from the White House and president trump throughout this process so it's not a surprise Friday marked a deadline for the president to defend himself before the Judiciary Committee and the White House council passed the baloney signal they won't take part and sent a letter to Nadler that the inquiry was quote completely baseless and should end now but if it doesn't the baloney quoted the president saying hurry up get it over with so we can move to a Senate trial the president feels a Republican led chamber will be friendlier to his costs okay so you said the acts today are a little like the beginning of a trial but of course is not the trial you mentioned the Senate trial which would come later first the house has to agree on what the charges actually are what the articles of impeachment would be specifically how the committee turned the various accusations into articles of impeachment yes Democrats will take today's presentations as the ground work for developing the actual articles of impeachment we could see articles of bribery in obstruction and we could see those later this week and that could be followed up by historic vote on the house floor next week and with that it would move this process on impeachment to a trial in the Senate already Republican centers have told us that they have set aside the month of January to hold this trial and we've heard that that could last two weeks or more and could entail witnesses in a variety of other details that need to be hammered out in this new phase the president's been very vocal about wanting a robust defense there and even in Republican control chamberlain have his work cut out for him trying to convince at least fifty one senators to include a long list of what this is that could lead to new delays in this part of the problem meeting the president wants to air this out with witnesses the center's might not want to take time exactly okay Claudia thanks so much for the update thanks for having me and peers cloudy for solace.

"And I think it has been. Used over the past couple of years. So all the best house committees. In a tough environment. Because how do you do this work when you have a government shutdown in that's part of the reason that I think the administration doesn't have a lot of incentive to move forward here. I agree. It's tough. When the Muller investigation is hanging out there. And we keep hearing the report from the Muller team will be released in February. But I don't know exactly. When maybe somebody on the Hilda's February is not far in it's not a long month. So just saying if I were cheering one of these committees, though, I would have a lot of questions about what to prioritize and the timing to tackle things in because some of these questions might get resolved by the Miller report. So I think they're in tough spots. I agree. I hope this has been a helpful overview of the committees themselves who's coming into power in the realities. They're facing as with everything in our current political environment the ground underneath these house committees will be shifting rapidly. And we'll be here to walk you through all that next up. We're gonna share what's on our mind outside politics. Sarah, what's. On your mind outside of politics. I watched both documentaries about the fire festival. Do you know what I'm talking about? Do not. Okay. Do you? Remember the fire festival. It was the music festival, and it was like going to be a big deal, and it was going to be on an island. And then everybody got there, and it was a complete shit show and people are like hungry and being locked in airports, and it was just total total disaster. Do you? Remember this controversy? Not really. Okay. The says a lot about your social media following positively says a lot of positive things about your social media following. Well, it was a big deal. It was John rule in his kid named Billy McFarland, and they had this viral video and out of all these models romping on a remote island in the Bahamas. And they were going to have this amazing music festival, and then it all fell apart because this Billy McFarland dude was definitely committing fraud on his investors, his employees and ticket goers the whole entire time. So there are two documentaries. There was Netflix was putting one out and then like two days before Hulu came out was like, hey, we have to kind of be him to the punch. I wish both of them. I'm just trying to do the due diligence for all you people. You're welcome. It was totally fascinating. It's definitely more of the Hulu when the net one because the net flicks. One interviews the social media company that did the promotion for the festival and holds them much less responsible than the Hulu one. But I think the Hulu when goes a little too far, and sort of indicting the millennial generation as you know, they're just it's all about. Omo and so they're ripe to be exploited. And they don't ask hard questions. It was a little heavy handed for me. They interview Billy McFarland in the Hulu one. But I use the word interview very lightly because he basically doesn't answer any hard questions. He's currently in federal prison. I thought that Netflix one both of them were really interesting, but the Netflix had a little bit more hard detail and better storytelling about although I do think that the team at Gerry the social media company holds more.

"His staff is filed like fifty subpoena requests for Trump for the Trump administration. But because they were not the majority they were sort of powerless to issue the subpoenas. They were filing them. They were investigating the administrators response to hurricane Maria locating migrant children separated from their families investigating the ethical issues with the Scott Pruitt. In all his adventures. I'm going to be nice calm adventures over the PA. So now that he is the chairman of the majority he can issue those subpoenas. And so I think this committee is rapidly going to be second up a lot of the oxygen in the room. I think that's right and closely related is the judiciary committee, which is chaired by Jerry Nadler, this committee has oversight of immigration policy and just as a side note, Senator Jeff Merkley has asked the F B I to investigate secretary Nielsen for perjury. And I imagined that what happens on the Senate side is going to influence the direction of the house side judiciary would have oversight. If impeachment proceedings opened during Adler could reopen an investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanagh. So he is very broad power. And seems a bit circumspect so far about how he's going to use it. But now, blur shift and Cummings. So the three committees that we just talked about have already sent the. President a letter warning him against interfering with Michael Cohen as a witness after the president was on television blasting Cohen. And I think this letter really highlights what these committees are here to do. So Jerry, Nadler is a Representative from New York his district does include part of New York City, and so him and Donald Trump have a long not awesome history together, which was reported on a lot. When it looked like the Democrats are gonna take the majority. And so I personally just having a little bit longer knowledge of Jerry Nadler, I had a friend who worked for him for a long time. Like, this is the one I'll be watching just just to put that out there. I think he's being like you said, I think he's being circumcised. I don't think he's coming out the gates roaring. I think that's a smart move. But I think he's got plans. I'll be honest, I make Jerry Nadler's got lots and lots of plants Bilas committee that we wanted to talk about today is the house foreign affairs committee chaired by Elliot Ingle who is not a fan of secretary Pumpido. He has been a vocal critic of secretary Pompey's tendency to travel the globe bashing political opponents, especially his most recent time in Egypt. He is interested in the president's ties to Panama and Russia, again, foreign affairs. Why are we doing what we're doing? Are we doing for good reasons? Or are we doing it for reasons that are personal to the president? He is creating a subcommittee focused entirely on investigating President Trump and to create that subcommittee. He is eliminating a subcommittee focused on terrorism. You can imagine how the conservative world has reacted to that switch. But this is a committee that I think is going to be a real thorn in the president side as well. I mean, I think that's the theme. The theme is many of these committees are and look I don't think it's about being a thorn in the side either. I think it's just finally being check we need people asking questions, I can't believe sort of when you look back over that. We've hit the officially hit the two year Mark of the Trump. Station in just a few of the short things we've listed separating children from their parents at the border the corruption at the EPA the problems with his ties to Russia and his failure to release his tax returns. Like, there's just there's so much here that I honestly have questions about in. I hope somebody asks, and I hope that part of the reason we have avoided missteps in previous administrations is because good oversight was being done quietly behind the scenes, you know, fill the Republican congress under President Obama decided this oversight was a place to make names for people. And I imagine that that trend is gonna continue, but we do need oversight. Like there should be tension. They should be thorn in the side. Like, we talked about on our last episode things should be really difficult to get done in the federal government because the federal government has immense power. And if it were easy to just do things that power could so easily be abused..

"Subcommittee ranking members to write numerous letters to our regulators, chairman hints her laying and which a Bank on this matter. So Representative waters will not let Trump go quietly into the night in her committee either I have to mention to hilariously to your point about her not being so moderate. This letter has a section called working across the aisle. And the next section header is fighting back against Republican extremism. Wants Maxine Waters. That's what it is. So then we should talk about committees that are going to be more focused on investigations, those were really kind of legislatively focused committees. Now, we're going to get into the investigative committees. And we didn't make this point on Friday. But I want to be sure everybody knows house committees cannot bring criminal charges against people, but they can refer matters to the Justice department, and in the course of doing that they can subpoena documents and witnesses in hold hearings and just generally make life, really hard. And I think that's going to happen. I agree. Okay. So first we have the intelligence committee, which has been staffing up hiring lots of money laundering, and forensic accounting experts because there's basically theory that Trump laundered Russian money when they couldn't get legitimate financing. We didn't even get into the new reporting that they're basically admitting that we're trying to get Trump Tower in Moscow all the way through the campaign. So I don't think the staffing is ill advised. I think it's very well advised. The head of the intelligence committee is Adam Schiff to is the Representative for California's twenty eighth congressional district since two thousand thirteen so he's a newer member. I would say if you're wondering what Trump laundering Russian money has to do with the house intelligence committee. And I think there are people who probably are the intelligence committees concern here would be what potentially compromising material is out there about Trump in what ways could foreign governments be blackmailing, the president influencing the president's foreign policy because of intelligence that they. They have about him. And so that's the link to shifts committee. They also have questions about his family's financial ties to Saudi Arabia and North Korea for the same reason, we've had really unusual statements trips discussions from the Trump administration about these two countries that is very different from past presidents, and where kind of consensus positions are in Washington DC. And so the intelligence committee wants to make sure in the best reading of this the intelligence committee wants to make sure that that's all on the up and up that there isn't a reason that we don't know about for those things to be happening. And I just wanna say as a Republican, I don't like endless investigations, I think the Republican party was completely wasteful of taxpayer dollars in many longstanding investigations that they've insisted upon I do think there is a role for this kind of activity, and I think that Republicans started down the path of the right role and just let it get out of control in a lot of their investigation. So I'm not opposed to anything that Adam Schiff is describing I think it's necessary oversight, especially because he is taking the gavel of this committee from Devon Nunez who I have massive questions about. So I I think he has a lot of work in front of him. And I think it's work that should be done. So next up. We have the oversight committee, which is chaired by logic coming Sousa, congress person from Maryland, also a long term congressperson. He was first elected in nineteen ninety six. He's also seen as one of the big party leaders as far as the the hierarchy fallen it's Pelosi. It's really interesting over the past few years in the minority..

"And probably has a lot of people shaking in their boots. Because the details of that are long and thorny Maxine Waters is the Representative from California's forty third district. She has been in congress since nineteen ninety one and she's often like did with like seventy percent of the vote. So there is not as much reason to be a moderate. But she is the Mosignor of all the African American women and congress, she's another long-term congresswoman, but very different political makeup of her district than somebody like Richard Neal or Frank Pallone, such I mean, she doesn't have a lot of motivation to be moderate. But I think that she is a much stronger bipartisan player than people. Give her credit for I read a really interesting article about her several months ago that was like she has a stronger history of working across the album, people than her sort of media portrayal would lead you to believe another interesting thing about the House Financial Services committee is that Alexandria, Cossio Cortez has been named as a member. So I mean, I'm all in on these hearings. I'll be watching. I'm just going to be based on those two being their alone. I'll be watching, and you know, I'm I'm definitely more of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party when it comes to consumer protections and the income inequality. So I'm excited about these two. I'm excited about Maxine Waters bean at the head of the House Financial Services committee. I can't wait sushi does in to be inclusive here accustomed Cortes is not the only kind of freshman star on this committee, Rasheed. It's Lyod is on it. I on impressively this committee is stacked up to do a lot. It also is stacked up to do some things that will otherwise personally effect. The Trump administration. So also included in Representative water's letter was this paragraph. I'm committed to strong oversight and following the Trump money trail starting with Deutsche Bank and suspicious activities reports filed with the financial crimes enforcement network or FinCEN today, I have joined with my.

"So last Friday, we went through the five important things you need to know about house committees. And we really focused on the house committees with the most power the power to either raise taxes or deal with like seventy five percent of the cabinet departments. And so we're going to work our way through these committees and talk about who's in charge now. And what that could mean for the future. I'll tell you Beth what I was really surprised by someone who thinks they know a lot about the major players in DC, and who did understand which committees where powerful I do not even recognize the names of the two most powerful committees. So that tells you something about media coverage and actual power within congress. I think that's right. So we'll start with ways and means as we discussed ways and means has a huge power of the purse. Right. So committee power concentrated a lot in how much money they control and also how much. Money is given to members of those committees because of the money that they control so Richard Neal is the chair of the ways and means committee the main stories about Richard Neal. So far are about his power potentially is chair of the ways and means committee to get Donald Trump's tax returns. There is a very obscure law that allows the ways and means committee to review any of our tax returns in a closed session. It has been almost never used and not sure if that law would work or not there would probably be a big legal battle. If they tried to get Trump's tax returns under it. So Richard Neal's approach is to make the case that there should be a law requiring all presidents to disclose their tax returns. What has been a practice should become a law? And so that's a slower play. Then a lot of people on the left one from him. I think it's really wise, and I commend him for taking that approach. So just. Richard Neal is from Massachusetts first congressional district. He assumed office in nineteen eighty nine takes a while to get to the top of the ways and means the medium he's been there. A while. I was eight as cool. So I would say that this is a very experienced congress person. So think about if the position of ways and means I don't I'm not sure how long has been on this committee. But I would assume it's a long time. I mean, he's built up a lot of political power in probably a lot of fundraising prowess. So I think this will be very interesting to watch. And I think you're right. I think that saying that all president should be first of all I agree. I think they should all disclose their tax returns. Is of is a smart play next up is energy and commerce, energy and commerce is chaired by Representative Frank Pallone. Now, he is very focused on climate change. He is a little more moderate to than some voices in the party would like him to be. So he has said that he's willing to have this committee. Take up the green. Deal proposal. He also has expressed skepticism about whether parts of it will work are realistic. And he has said like I don't wanna deal in concepts. I want to actually get things done his very first hearing is going to be on climate change. He's gotten a little bit press over the past couple of weeks because there's been this call for every member of this committee to reject funding from fossil fuel companies, and he has said that goes too far because where do you draw the line, which is, you know, not making everyone happy. But that's where he is. And I think there's a trend here. Right people who've been there, a very long time or the way they are for reasons. So Pallone is from New Jersey, but his district has changed since his time in office. He's another longtime Representative came in nineteen eighty eight in. So I he served in New Jersey's third district and then it got redrawn. And now he is the Representative from New Jersey's sixth district, and he's had challenges. Said primary challenges he has made his immoderate because it's not a hardcore left leaning district in New Jersey. I think that that's where you see that moderation company, again, another long serve long term congressman who knows the robes and his more moderate based a lot on his district in the sort of constituency. He served a New Jersey, Maxine Waters chairs less less moderate, Leslie mater. It's out there chairs now the.

"Because I feel like if we continue letting him use the same tactics create chaos. Hold us all hostage. It's only going to escalate and get worse. And so there is a part of me. That's like, yeah. Call his bluff, finally, please just at the expense of so many people in that is unfortunate. I did read that Mitch McConnell. Is starting his sort of behind the scenes machinations. I think he understands I am like, holy speculating here. I think he understands ought some level. There is a remarkable opportunity for Republicans to get a lot of immigration reform that most of them think is a good idea, but are scared to do because of the base of the Republican party. They could get it done here in the name of getting our coastguard paid in the name of getting the government reopen. They could make compromises that. They have been afraid to make in other contexts and get this thing done and all of us be better for it. This doesn't have to have happened in vain. Now, this is a stupid way to get us there. But here we are in stupid land. So can we make the best of it? And I wish that they would just get to work on that you could have pretty good immigration reform done here as a compromise and away for some. Of those Republicans who wouldn't cast these votes otherwise to save face with the bass, the always compliment the other side before we move onto our main segments. Sarah who do you wanna compliment today? I'm going to go back in time a little bit. And I am going to complement president. Ronald Reagan who signed the law that created the Martin Luther King junior holiday into law in one thousand nine hundred eighty three as we are recording on Martin Luther King day. And so I know that history is complicated, and it was a reluctant signing, but it was assigning just the same. And so I would like to recognize that Ronald Reagan did create this holiday in which we get to celebrate. And contemplate memorialize somebody who is so important to our American history into civil rights in the United States. I wanted to complement Representative Tony Cardenas of California. He accepted an apology from Representative Jason Smith of Missouri after Smith yelled, go back to Puerto Rico during a squabble on the floor of the house. The house was like erupting, basically over this. Got a little intense in their man kind of felt like we were in the UK for a second over roll-call vote versus a voice vote on one of the funding bills and.

"Well, when you have no idea when it's gonna end I was reading an article from business insider that will put in the show notes about how nutrition in schools is funded through the end of March. But nothing right now gives anyone comfort that this is going to be resolved by the end of March. And so school programs are starting to think, well, do we do less juice. You know, how do we how do we make provision? So that if we have to get through the end of the school year were able to do that is a very sad situation. Trump offered this weekend temporarily. Extended protections for Dhaka recipients for about three years if he could have his five point seven billion dollars for the border wall. Not surprisingly that proposal did not go over well with Democrats. I really liked Elijah Cummings quote. He basically said, look, why would we give a permanent wall in exchange for temporary protections, which I thought was a nice way to phrase. It doesn't go far enough. And also, the Democrats at this point are refusing to even discuss funding and or discuss immigration until the government is back open to me, the the narrative about his proposal was we're just trying to shift the responsibility to them. We don't actually think this like this. But the the narrative coming from his administration, and from sort of analysis was this is just a try to shift the the responsibility to Democrats because we know at this point that it's that we're owning all this people are blaming us. And we really just want to offload the blame. I read some articles this morning that to cut to the chase said what you just said that Republicans wanted him to just put something on the. Table. So that there was something to start working with which seems so silly to me because there is something to start working with the Senate passed something before the holiday break, right? That you would think could be a good starting place. But I don't think anybody has any ideas about how to break this logjam. And it's just embarrassing. It's becoming frustrating. Tragic embarrassing all of them. I'm just backed like why are we even here? What are we doing as the United States of America? If we can't even get our government to function if we're not even doing the most basic functions of government, we need to really have a sit down and talk about what the point of all of this is especially when this amount of money is a large amount of money, and it's also not in the grand scheme this money. Can't do much on water wall. Right. Like, if you if you actually want what Trump says he wants five point seven billion. Doesn't get him even close to that. I saw Senator I think it was Chris Murphy tweet over the weekend. Something like, you know, imagine. Somebody wrecks your house in than says, I'll fix it. If you give me five point seven billion dollars. What would you say in Brian Schatz from Hawaii the Senator from Hawaii responded, instead I'd say, hey, man, that sounds like a lot of money how about three, and I really kind of appreciated that interaction. And that the Senator was making the point of like, yes, this is terrible. It is Trump's fault. Also, like, how can we just get some movement here? You know, it's just tough negotiations like this where someone has said I own this is on me. And I'm not going to budge it just doesn't give in the other person any room to budge either I read this weekend that Trump invited Schumer to the White House. And he said not basically not without Nancy like, there's just no daylight between the Democrats, which is the new thing. We're trying. I'm kind of enjoying it. But I think that you know, they know, and I think he knows that they are in a stronger bargaining position. And he's tried all his classic techniques of lemme create chaos. Let me create like exactly that let me create damage and then come in and offer to take it away. And they're just not biting in. So there's a part of me that is particularly the democrat. That's like on one hand. I do not believe that Donald Trump will ever not be Donald Trump on the other hand at no point in his presidency or candidacy did anybody. Call his day bluff, and I am ready for his bluff to be called..
