"There's a needs to be a fundamental shift in how we talk about crime, how we talk about consequences and how we're working with young people that we know are in trouble. I think it needs to be on how to get young people who are using guns. And make sure that they can't hurt other people. Mayor spoke from the scene of today's shooting death at Roosevelt high school. Now to a story we told you about earlier this month, a big development, three teens are accused of rushing onto a school bus in prince George's county and auction hill and trying to take the life of a student on board. Two of the teenagers are under arrest now. The 14 and 15 year old boys were among three accused of rushing past the bus driver and bus a to attack a middle schooler who was the last student on the bus. The union that represents the bus driver told WTO that the drivers saw back on May 1st as one team pulled out a gun and tried to shoot the student at point blank range three times. Luckily, the gun malfunctioned. The whole attack was caught on the bus security camera. The French George of county police department isn't saying if the team with the gun is among the two who were arrested, but it is saying the two are being charged as adults with attempted murder. Mike Morello WTO news. And new tonight on WTO P the FBI has revoked the security clearances of three agents in connection with the insurrection at the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. According to a letter from the bureau that was sent to congressional investigators and obtained by The New York Times, the agency the participated in the riot or expressed views that placed into question their allegiance to the country. Two of the agents Marcus Helen and Stephen friend will appear before a House judiciary subcommittee tomorrow, the subcommittee is looking at what it calls the weaponization of the federal government. The three agents who had their security clearances revoked are all currently suspended while the FBI reviews their cases. Democrats have failed to force the house to take a vote on whether to expel George Santos the Republican lawmaker indicted on 13 federal charges. New York Republican Charles D esposito says he would like Santos to be expelled, but made the motion to send a resolution for his expulsion to the ethics panel because there's not the two thirds majority needed to kick him out of Congress. I believe that this individual is a stain on this institution, a stay in the state of New York, a staying on Long Island, and a stain on the beloved Nassau county. New York Democrat Dan Goldman had sought a vote on expelling Santos, who faces 13 federal charges. He says, unlike in some previous congressional corruption cases, Santos used his lies and deceit in order to get a seat in Congress. And that is why it is so important that we move quickly. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO, after the vote lawmakers were shouting at one another

"Any movement that tells you that overt disrespect for your parents, as your parents, not disagreement, you're allowed to disagree with your parents. But overt disrespect, attempts to humiliate your parents unless they are full on abusive. That any attempts to do that are good and that you have sort of an added credibility in doing that, that is a bad movement that is essentially a cult. We become a very cultic country and a very cultic civilization in which you are taken away from your father and mother by perverse ideologies and morphed into a widget on behalf of those new ideologies and it really is a sickness. And it is a great evil that is descended upon civilization when people take into their hearts the idea that your job as a human. Part of your job is to not only define yourself and contradictions your parents without taking any of their wisdom, but to overtly then attack the people who raised you. Something really bad about that. Okay, in just a second, we'll get to a fantastic hearing on the hill. In which Democrats kind of showed that democracy dies in darkness and all of that first, let's talk about spiritual values. The fact is that, as I've been saying, I think that the west has lost a lot of the spirituality that made us great. Well, if you wish to regain some of that spirituality, reconnect with something higher, then you should probably take a dose of hallow. Just like physical exercise, daily spiritual exercise is critical to your well-being. Hella will help you maintain. Any daily prayer routine. It's filled. The study's meditations and reflections that are rooted in judeo Christian prayer practices. You can pray alongside Mark Wahlberg or Jim Caviezel, and even some world class athletes. You can also access the number one Christian podcast in the land, the Bible in a year with father Mike schmitz on hallow. I'm not somebody who obviously partakes in lent, but it's a powerful spiritual time for a lot of Christians to abstain from luxuries and more deeply embrace their faith. I've always encouraged Christians to more deeply engage with their faith. I think that a faith based society is going to be a lot more robust and healthy than a non faith based society. I think you as a person are going to be a lot happier and more fulfilled. If you engage with your faith, try halo for three months free at halo dot com slash Shapiro. Again, that's hallow dot com slash Shapiro. Go check them out right now. Try it three months for free. Hello dot com slash hero. Okay, so meanwhile, Democrats on the hill have decided that they are now going to attack the free press in order to get Elon Musk. So the Republicans who just took over the house, they launched what was called a weaponization of the federal government subcommittee. It was a House judiciary subcommittee. And the subcommittee is designed and aimed at uncovering the perversions that were pursued in the first years of the Biden administration. And also in the last years of the Trump administration, actually, by big tech, being pressured by, for example, the FBI in order to shut down particular messages. And we know about a lot of that stuff from the Twitter files, where it was very obvious that there was hand in glove movement between the FBI and places like Twitter. We already know that the FBI was putting pressure on places like Facebook to take down particular material, including the Hunter Biden laptop story in October of 2020. So Republicans hosted as a couple of the witnesses, Matt taibbi, and Michael schomburg, both of them have been guests on the program. They are also the journalists who revealed some of the tranches of the Twitter files, representative Jim Jordan, let off by charging the government built a cozy relationship with big tech. And of course talked about the Hunter Biden story. And this led the Democrats not to suggest in bipartisan fashion. Well, yeah, we probably shouldn't have the militarization of big tech on behalf of the government. Which is what you would have expected to hear from the left during, for example, the Patriot Act era. If this hearing happens in 2006, probably the roles are reversed. But here, you have the Democrats overtly attempting to violate basic rules of journalism, attack the journalists as enemies of the people. It really wasn't astonishing sight. So, for example, you had Texas Democrat representative Sylvia Garcia demanding demanding that these journalists had schellenberger exposed that it was Elon Musk as the direct source for the Twitter files. Now, listen, obviously, Elon Musk had to be invested in revealing these trenches of files to these journalists because they got the files, they're from Twitter, somebody from Musk's team or somebody around musket, but the idea here is that when they, for the Democrats, that if Elon Musk gave the files, as we'll see, this is the line they pursue. If Elon Musk made these files public, then Elon Musk is the villain. Now this falls very much in line with the idea that Kevin McCarthy is the villain for revealing 41,000 hours of footage of January 6th to Tucker Carlson. The problem isn't the coverage, the problem isn't the lack of transparency in the first place. The problem is the revelation. So here you have Sylvia Garcia attempting to cuddle these journalists into revealing their sources. What was the first time that mister Musk approached you about writing the Twitter files? Again, congresswoman that would I just need a date, sir. But I can't give it to you, unfortunately, because this is a question of sourcing. And I don't give a journalist. I don't really mind myself. Which is a question of chronology. So you're not going to tell us first approached you. Again, congresswoman when you're asking me to you're asking your journalist to reveal something. Then you consider mister must to be the direct source of all this. No, now you're trying to get me to say that he is the source. I can't answer your question. If you're telling me you can't answer because it's your source, well then only logical conclusion is that he is, in fact, your source. Well, you're free to conclude that. It's amazing. Under no other circumstance, if Republican were doing this to a democratic witness, the media would be all over it, right? The media would be telling you that this is a violation of First Amendment freedoms this an attack on the freedom of the PRES but these attacks were nonstop yesterday during this hearing. Really, astonishing stuff, he had representative Stacey plaskett, who's a ranking member there from, I believe the Virgin Islands, referring to taibbi and schellenberger as quote unquote so called journalists because real journalists are people who work for the Democrats, obviously. This isn't just a matter of what data was given to these so called journalists before us now. There are many legitimate questions about where Musk got the financing to buy Twitter. Again, so called journalists. So eventually, taibbi had a chance to fire back. It was amazing. One of the things that's amazing about watching congressional hearings is watching how obnoxious and gross so many of our elected officials are.

"Get a check of global news. And the U.S. Congress is getting impatient with security concerns over China's influence over TikTok It banks just got more. It yeah, it is a ticking along here. Congresses are working Paul on two bills that would limit or ban the use of TikTok in the U.S. Bloomberg's Alex barranca says apparently weary of waiting for the Biden administration. Congress seems to be getting a little bit impatient or at least these very vocal members who've been anti TikTok are getting a little bit impatient with this national security review that's going on under the Biden administration with TikTok to try to kind of come to an agreement of how to get TikTok to work in the United States in a way that makes folks who care about not social security or worried about the Chinese government's influence on TikTok's parent company ByteDance. Yeah, the bill that passed the Senate yesterday bans use of government phones, House speaker Nancy Pelosi says she doesn't know if that can get a vote this session. The other is Marco Rubio's, which bans the use of TikTok in the U.S.. Yeah, all together, ban Alex says seems to be an inflection point in the discussion. India has test fired a nuclear capable long-range ballistic missile, says it will add great value to defense and comes following the fresh tensions along disputed China border. Japan will describe China as an unprecedented strategic challenge, this is coming as a new set of security policies that could be approved as early as today, prime minister fumio Keisha's cabinet will be meeting. There's grave concern at the proliferation of missile testing in the region. We'll have more toward the bottom of the hour. There are estimates now that this last week's nuclear fusion success at Lawrence Livermore labs could mean carbon free waste free power plants this decade and Ursula needs some Bloomberg balance of power says, yeah, it could be coming soon. The prize is that we would have an essentially limitless amount of carbon free electricity without any danger of long lived nuclear waste as we have with today's nuclear power. And he says several private companies now have stepped up and already have raised four to $5 billion to get it done. House judiciary subcommittee on crime terrorism and Homeland Security in the U.S. holding a hearing trying to find a bipartisan solution to gun violence. Chair representative Jerry Nadler is describing the gun issue as a uniquely American problem. Americans are 25 times as likely to die from gun violence as citizens in other countries. And no one can slam to the American people by saying that we are 25 times as mentally ill. But Republicans are still arguing the restrictions take away American Second Amendment rights. And China's top health adviser says COVID can now just be called a cold. He says, oh Macron's fatality rate is only at 0.1% similar to seasonal influenza. In San Francisco, I'm at Baxter this is Bloomberg all right, Doug, thanks, head. Let's get to Mark Franklin, who is with us from Hong Kong mark is managing director also senior portfolio manager. Multi asset solutions at manual life investment management. Mark, I want to begin kind of with the China reopening story. I mean, this is still very much work in progress. The data that we had yesterday was very weak on a relative basis retail sales industrial production both missed estimates. We were speaking earlier when I say we, the folks here at Bloomberg talking with Greg Jensen of Bridgewater, he's talking about how the reopening of China is going to impact the global growth story and he's basically saying, hey, this is going to be a negative for the U.S. and Europe because until now, the shutdowns have meant that China has been essentially a de disinflationary force, and that's going to reverse itself on this reopening. At a time when we're talking about recessions, not only in Europe and in the U.S. as well. Do you agree with that? I think there is definitely a chance that there'll be an inflationary poll that comes out of China if they're successful in reopening the economy without too many hiccups. For the simple reason, as well as the demand side that the supply side of the key commodities, both energy and metallurgical commodities. The supply side has been significantly under invested in for a number of years now and it takes a long time for new supply to come on stream. So we're already facing physical short supplies of key commodities like copper. There's a big focus on energy supplies, both gas and crude oil. And that supply tightness could become exacerbated by incremental improvements in demand that are driven by China's reopening. From an investing point of view, does that make the material sector a buy right now? You have to be quite selective because not all commodities are showing that kind of physical tightness. I think copper looks interesting. Nickel is one which we have been active in investing in over recent weeks. And that also has a strong long-term driver in terms of the electrification of vehicle usage as well. And then coming back to energy, that is a sector which does definitely face long-term question marks over the physical supply side given the disincentives that have been introduced for investment in new productive capacity, particularly in western economies. So I want to pivot here and talk a little bit about the risk, the geopolitical risk between the U.S. and China right now. We just did the story about the watchdog for accounting practices here in the U.S. finally getting what has been requested from about 200 Chinese based in Hong Kong based firms so that their financials can be reviewed and verified. That had been a stress point. We know that. And we were talking earlier on our pre show meeting about how many blacklisted companies there are now Chinese firms that have been blacklisted. Top producers of advanced computer chips because they will no longer have access to American technology. So it seems like the tensions between the U.S. and China are not maybe it has the potential to even drive a wedge into this recovery story a bit. Do you think? Well, I think we have to accept that there's

"And sticking on to U.S. and China relations, the U.S. Congress is getting impatient with security concerns over China's influence over TikTok at Baxter has more Ed. Yeah, just more of the same right of on Congress is working on two bills now that would limit or ban the use of TikTok in the U.S.. Bloomberg's Alex barranca says apparently weary of waiting for the Biden administration. Congress seems to be getting a little bit impatient or at least these very vocal members who've been anti TikTok are getting a little bit impatient with this national security review that's going on under the Biden administration with TikTok to try to kind of come to an agreement of how to get TikTok to work in the United States in a way that makes folks who care about not social security or worried about the Chinese government's influence on TikTok's parent company ByteDance. Yeah, now Alex is going to join us in about 20 minutes and we'll drill down further. The bill had passed the Senate yesterday bans use on government phones, House speaker Nancy Pelosi says she doesn't know if that can get a vote this session. The other is Marco Rubio's, which bans the use of TikTok in the U.S., Alex says, seems to be at an inflection point.

This will come today in a set of security policies that could be approved as early as today.

The prize is that we would have an essentially limitless amount of carbon free electricity without any danger of long lived nuclear waste as we have with today's nuclear power.

And no one can slam to the American people by saying that we are 25 times as mentally ill. But Republicans are still arguing that restrictions take away American Second Amendment rights. China's top health adviser says COVID can now just be called a cold. He says, oh Macron's fatality rate is only 0.1%. And Hong Kong's chief executive John Lee says it is highly possible to reopen the border with the mainland in 2023. Now, Brian, my memory isn't quite as good as yours, but it seems to me I've heard that somewhere before, huh? Well, we had several newspaper stories that we could be seeing some action in January. And so for him to say that sometime in 2023, it's a little surprising, however, they do tend to move slowly on this. And this would be decided by the Chinese side in any case, most likely. We had reports from the South China morning post and also from da gong Bao, which is a pro China newspaper in Hong Kong that we could see some action as soon as January. So interesting. This is something that we'll be discussing with our guests all throughout the morning. And thank you. Let's get to our guest Priya misra. Global head of rates strategy at TD securities. So Priya, I'm a little confused here. Recession fears are gaining momentum and we see that with the weak retail sales and the stumbling manufacturing. Also, the strong bid for a long-term treasuries. And the widening inversion of the yield curve. So there's definitely that fear yet, as I mentioned, Doug, a few moments ago, the Atlanta fed GDP now tracker shows growth at 2.7%. So what's going on? Sure. Thanks for having me. Great question. I think the data right now is very hard to argue that it's signaling a recession. But the market is forward looking. And we realize that monetary policy works with a lag. And so I think what the market is saying is there's a lot that the fed has done. And it's not just the fed we've had typing in financial conditions because it's a global rise in interest rates and global QT. So I think forward looking expectations of growth are what are declining as opposed to the data, the consumer looks strong, the labor market looks strong. But I will say the fed meeting yesterday also reinforce some of those recession fears. I mean, despite the fed putting in significant rate hikes, they still have the unemployment rate rising 4.6% by the end of next year. They have almost zero GDP for next year as well. I mean, they are calling it a soft landing, but it's very close to a recession. So I think it reinforced fears. That's why it's brought a bit to bonds. It's continued that bit that was building up anyway. It's just the fear that the fed may have already overdone it, whether they ended 5 O 5 and a half percent. They've done a lot, and that's going to slow down the economy, lead to a recession, and that's why that long end is performing well. I think the markets are little pessimistic in terms of how quickly the economy slows down. But I have to say our base case is for a recession in the second half of next year and the fed starting to ease rates by December. So I don't disagree with the team just the timing. I was initially I don't see particular policy decisions from the U.S. changing that in the very near term. Yeah, and you mentioned the reopening play. I mean, you're seeing this pretty violent rotation out of government bonds at a credit in China into the equity market. Should I expect that to continue and do you think the bond market has fully priced in this sort of reopening? Yeah, I do think the expectation. I think nobody expected such a quick reopening. I have to say, I've been surprised. And what that's telling me is the Chinese authorities are responding to the protests, as well as the economic impact of the lockdowns. And so does that mean they are going to have maybe more targeted stimulus. I don't think we get broad based stimulus, but we're going to get more targeted stimulus. That's good for the economy. So I think there's more in that rotation, but we have to really wait to see what does China do in terms of policy measures. And as I said, I'm waiting for that economic work conference for details. None of us wants to talk politics, but we have to be aware of it. This dismantling of the COVID strategy does it suggest to us that Xi Jinping is losing power to his peers in the party. You know, or is he being more responsive to the economy? I mean, at the end of the day, there's a health policy and any economic policy and if the two out of sync, it's not politically stable. And

"Lawmakers have had it out for facebook for a while last year a house judiciary subcommittee report accused the tech giant of anticompetitive behaviour and in december. Facebook got suit on monday. Those lawsuits were dismissed. It's a big win. For the social media company it also signals a rocky path forward for legislators both sides of the aisle trying to rein in big tech here to break down. the latest development is recode serene ghaffari high serene. Hey adam so let's start with the lawsuits. What were they about yes. The lawsuits basically accused facebook of acting as a monopoly to crush. Its competition two different lawsuits. One was filed by the federal trade commission or the ftc which is the top government agency for enforcing antitrust laws. And then there was a parallel lawsuit also filed by forty eight attorneys general from different states and territories in the us and they both essentially said the same thing that facebook's allegedly monopolistic practices leave consumers with less choices for which social networking apps. They wanna use and advertisers have less choices for aware. They want actually advertise reach. People lawsuits also said that. Facebook engage in a quote systemic strategy to eliminate their competition and that this was something really tactical that facebook was actively doing crush its competitors. What exactly did that strategy look like so. The lawsuit said that when facebook bought instagram. Back in two thousand twelve and remember at that time. Instagram was a startup. it was considered an up and coming rival to facebook They said that that was an example of something that facebook shouldn't have been allowed to do because in regulators view this was essentially facebook trying to stifle competition by eating it up and buying it rather than letting market competitor truly compete and they also point to win. Facebook bought the messaging app called whatsapp in two thousand fourteen. Again this up and coming service. That was rivaling. facebook and facebook went ahead and bought it today. More people are on. What's app than they are on facebook's own messenger product but that doesn't matter for facebook because it's all part of the facebook ecosystem now

"Final news round up and information overload our eye news round up information overload. Our will get your calls. Final half hour. The program today And even in this half hour, perhaps so in North Carolina, the first African American lieutenant governor, he went to Congress at a house hearing and he let him up. I mean, it was It was an amazing moment amazing speech regarding voting rights, who is before the House Judiciary subcommittee addressing these claims by the left that voter I d is racist. As you know, Joe Biden's been claiming well, is the Jim Crow two point now? In his state of Delaware 500 years he's represented that state he's never once reformed, made Maura accessible the voting laws in his state of Delaware or is he once said, my state's a slave state. But Joe Biden is out there criticizing Georgia voting. The New Georgia voting law 17 days of early in person voting in Delaware 00. Uh, you need an excuse to get an absentee ballot in Delaware, not Georgia. Every single precinct in Georgia has a dropbox and both states require voter I d and he you know how dare he played the race card the way he's been doing it, and he's done it three times. Now that we've counted Anyway. So this is the Lieutenant governor Mark Robinson is his name will meet him in a second of North Carolina before this subcommittee today, we hear Georgia law being compared to jump Crow. Black voices of being silenced. And the black voices are being kept out. How my bullets by bombs by nooses know by requiring a free idea to secure the vote. Let me say that again by requiring a three eyed to secure the vote. How absolutely preposterous. I might have believed that black Americans who have overcome the atrocities of slavery. More victorious in the civil rights movement and now sit in the highest levels of this government could not figure out how to get a free. I'd to secure their votes that they need to be called by politicians because they don't think we can figure out how to make our voices her. Are you kidding me? The notion that black people must be protected from a free idea to secure their boats. Is not just insane. It is insulting just a few days ago. Excuse me. Let me tell you something about this. This doesn't have anything to do with justice. This has everything to do with power. Wow. Anyway, joining us now the lieutenant governor of the Great State of North Carolina, by the way, the first African American lieutenant governor of that great state, Sir, It's an honor to have you on the program. How come we Where have you been? Why have I not? Why have you not been on all radar yet? As a guest often? Well, there's been a couple of times and I think something's got jumped in front of us from bigger news stories jumped in promise, but I'm honored to be here for this first time, and I hope to be back again at some point. Well, I love North Carolina have a lot of friends down there. Um, as you may know, and, uh, you know, I watched this moment. And I was so grateful to you for for sharing that now I just gave the comparison. Of Georgia. Their new voting law versus the restrictive laws in states like Delaware and states like New York, and it's far less restrictive in Georgia, and it's far more accessible in Georgia. At the end of the day when Joe Biden, who's represented the state of his for 500 years, something like that is about 500 years old. Um, makes that statement that incendiary Jim Crow to point No, like he once said that they're gonna put you ain't black and The same guy. Interestingly, that even partnered with the former Klansman to stop the integration of schools and school bussing. But that would be Robert Byrd, who we praised the former Klansman and didn't want our schools to become racial jungles. We're gonna get lectured by him, and he's coming with his restrictive state laws on voting. That? Absolutely. You know, when you think of Joe Biden. When you think of the left one or comes to mind every time and that is hypocrisy. They are expert on hypocrisy. Whether it be the racial jungle comment or we gonna They're gonna put you all back in chains or you ain't black comment So by political career, his wife, not just with Making racist statements but fighting for racist policies and how dare this man now stand like he's he's. He's forgotten that and claim to be this justice, this champion for racial justice. Is anything but and that needs to be pointed out. And while I'm talking on that subject as well, I think there were many people that was speaking during that period yesterday, who quite irritated by what I said. And nothing could make me off feel warm, deep down inside, but because because of it, you know I love the strong local leaders and states. That go to Washington and and do exactly what you did, because you it's kind of how I feel about many people in Washington, the swamp the sewer. Don't respect them. I don't think a lot of them are honorable. I don't think they're consistent. You mentioned the word hypocrisy. You're certain you're 100% right? And it reeks with hypocrisy. And they It's so money Get hit caught up in the quicksand of that swamp, And it's so despicable and incomes you know, here you are the lieutenant governor of North Carolina and you don't care. You're going to tell them the truth, whether they want to hear it or not. I'm so glad you did it. Well, you know, it's just another one of the things that I think points out to what we really you start doing in this country. You know these guys that go to Washington, D. C and I told him this yesterday, they set up high and they looked long. They think they know better enough. They think they know what's right for states was right for the people. It is time for us to stand up and push back against the federal government. The federal government has stepped out of his family. It was decades ago when they continue to do it on increasingly alarming rate. You don't one time I was having a conversation with someone and I told him, I said, You know, that annoying co worker at work who's never own past was always behind in his own work. He never knows what's going on in his own death. But he's always in somebody else's business. Always that somebody else's desk and always trying to take someone else's job that is the federal government. That's a good description of what they do. They're never own password what they should be doing and they're always trying to take over things. They shouldn't be. We see it all the time. We see it with education, and now we're seeing it with with voting rights that should be left up to and prescribed to the states to carry out. All the national bowling balls. We need to have absolutely yes, but they absolutely that they should be. But we should not be allowed in the federal government to reason and dictate a partisan wishlist upon the states for the purposes of trying to keep one party in power. Lieutenant Governor I think there are four things that every state needs to have. So we can have confidence in the results of our elections and integrity in the system. One is voter picture. I d right. You need that to get into the White House getting See to get into the capital to buy a six pack of beer to buy a pack of cigarettes to buy a jeweled pod for crying out loud, right. That's one signature verification is, too. We have a very rigid standard for chain of custody that Partisan observers be able to watch.

The violence grew from confrontation at the tulsa. Courthouse where whites had gathered to abducted lynch and jailed.

I will now recognize myself from opening statement, please to convene the first hearing of the subcommittee on the Constitution. Civil rights and civil liberties for the 117th Congress. I look forward to once again working with the gentleman from Louisiana ranking member Mike Johnson and other members of our subcommittee on the many challenging and pressing issues that will be addressing us in the months and years to come, while we will no doubt have sharp disagreements from time to time, and it's my hope that we'll always be able to disagree with. In the guard rails of mutual respect his colleagues each of us percent here represent our constituents faithfully and to the best of our abilities. We begin this Congress by picking up on a topic that we developed. The voted to hearings to in the previous Congress, which is the proper scope and use of the president's constitutional power to grant clemency. Clemency Powers outlined an article too. Section two of the Constitution and is rightly broad clemency power is that purpose is to act as a safety valve for our criminal justice system to correct system injustices and to ensure that mercy temporary, excessively harsh punishments. There are a few things that more fiercely arm or more officially urgent than the need to grant clemency to the thousands who suffer from the burdens of excessive and unjust imprisonment. Where the collateral consequences stemming from their criminal convictions. Perhaps that, coincidentally, these burdens are disproportionately born by people of color have long been concerned with the stinginess with which modern presidents have granted clemency beginning of the 19 eighties with the so called war on drugs, which really goes back to the 19 seventies between 2013 to 2014. I wrote four letters to then President Obama and then attorney general holder urging. President, the attorney general of the more involved the random or clemency petitions and offer to opinion pieces on the subject calling from or clemency grants. In fact, I had written the president early in his second term and told him I had three C's. I wanted him to look on Cuba. Cannabis and computations. It was a literature maybe somewhat effective, but he was a little child Clemency also wrote to President Trump to commit him for committing the set commuting the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson encourage him to do more than his predecessor who did issue a great number of clemency is probably the most of anybody in recent time. Bar from the mouth of people that deserve them, and I asked him if he would doom or in granting clemency. Too. Many cases like that of Miss Johnson is my hope that President Biden will be a leading example of how clemency power could be more effectively used, especially among those who may be more deserving..

This was the first time I had ever seriously considered murder. She had to die. And then he goes on to say, You know, I didn't think it was right to take a human life.

We're talking about the four cos they're all big. They're all tech, but they're actually quite different company. One from the other. How can there be a through line from this investigation on these four different companies? Absolutely, And that's a very good point, David, Each of these CEOs of each of these four companies could have their own multi day hearing. The issues are very different with Facebook. It's misinformation and advertising with Google is advertising and search, which, with Apple, it is The APP store with Amazon. It is how these companies treat third party sellers. Jeff Bezos is somebody that we're really going to be watching here, the CEO of Amazon and also the richest person in the world because he's never testified before Congress before, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say in his prepared remarks, which were also a little bit different. From the rest. He talked about how his parents invested in Amazon in the early days. A typical and true American success story. He's also the owner of The Washington Post says that that could bring out a little more idolatry from the lawmakers. We don't know, but it's definitely going to be interesting to see how these lawmakers throughout their questions because they could basically ask anyone Anything at any time. So there's a chance that this could be all over the map, especially given that this is a virtual hearing. You're gonna have some of the lawmakers in the room.

"Important tech hearings up on Capitol Hill, where the CEOs the four largest tech companies are due to appear before Ah House Judiciary subcommittee on Anna trusted to answer questions about whether they have become and a competitive and won't return. Now to Emily Chang. She is anchor of Bloomberg Tech. We were rudely interrupted before I'm delighted you could be back with us, Emily So let's talk about this. We're talking about the four cos they're all big. They're all tech, but they're actually quite different company. One from the other. How can there be a through line from this investigation on these four different companies? Absolutely, And that's a very good point, David, Each of these CEOs of each of these four companies could have their own multi day hearing. The issues are very different with Facebook. It's misinformation and advertising with Google is advertising and search, which, with Apple, it is The APP store with Amazon. It is how these companies treat third party sellers. Jeff Bezos is somebody that we're really going to be watching here, the CEO of Amazon and also the richest person in the world because he's never testified before Congress before, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say in his prepared remarks, which were also a little bit different.

So there's a chance that this could be all over the map, especially given that this is a virtual hearing. You're gonna have some of the lawmakers in the room. The hearing has been delayed because they're basically cleaning up from the last hearing. You've got staffers inside now washing it down. But all of the CEOs will be calling in virtually So your comments suggest there is another person not in the room who may be quite important that is Donald J. Trump the president, United States He's not been shy in his criticism of some of these tech companies at all. What is the potential influence of the president here? Absolutely. And David we actually just in the last half hour, So got another tweet from the president focused on Big tech, the president tweeting. If Congress doesn't bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with executive orders in Washington. It has been all talk and no action for years and the people of our country are sick. And tired of it. Of course, the president tweets themselves have been the subject of much controversy, especially how Facebook in particular has handled his tweets. The one about looters and shooters threatening violence on the American people threatening violence on protesters in Washington, D. C. Facebook has made the decision to let those posts stand unflagging not behind. A warning of any kind, and that has kicked off. Ah lot of controversy. Facebook is in the middle of an ad boycott. Right now, you've got massive advertisers who have pulled their advertising from Facebook for the month of July and some for the foreseeable future. So you can expect Facebook to be the subject and Mark Zuckerberg in particular, probably of the most iron from these lawmakers. Lots of concern. About anti conservative bias on the right and also concerns from Democrats as well. You've seen Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, also taking aim at Facebook, and in fact, President Trump has already used his executive powers to sign an executive order asking The FCC to take a look at old laws that give companies like Facebook and Google and Twitter protection from liability over the content that those users users post so we could expect that to be a really hot button issue today. Well, it's a fascinating point. This is Washington where the rules as we both know are different, but this is the antitrust subcommittee, the House Judiciary Committee. Theoretically, they're supposed to do with competition issues. Not the substance of speech. And yet I wonder whether it would be a fair amount of questions that have nothing to do with that. I trust her competition at all it has to do with political bias. Absolutely. And look, I've talked to all of the company's going into this. They're expecting questions to be all over the map. It is not all going to fall under the antitrust umbrella, and we know that at some of these lawmakers, we're gonna have sort of personal bones to pick with these companies whether or not one of their posts personally was flagged. Or not, And it's been interesting hearing from the critics as well. You've got CEOs of other big tech companies like the CEO of Spotify, the CEO of Epic games and maker of Fortnight. I've spoken to these folks in the last couple of weeks in the last couple of months, and they've been speaking out about thes companies saying that Apple, for example. Is American, Apple and Google are a duopoly. You've heard a lot of criticism going into this about how these companies run their businesses, and that's what these lawmakers have been hearing now on. The other side of these four companies have massive lobbying operations that they've turned over. One source told me voluminous amounts of documents, millions and millions of pages. Stating their case stating their side to make sure that these lawmakers are informed and we should hope that these lawmakers are going into this with with some level of the right information you know in the past. When Mark Zuckerberg, for example, testified before Congress for the first time, some lawmakers didn't understand how Facebook's business model actually worked. So we'll be watching to see whether or not these lawmakers actually understand the businesses and the points That they want to make. It was a famous exchange. How do you make your money If you don't charge for, he said, Well, we sell advertising Senator. That was quite an exchange. Emily. Thank you so very much Want to treat you have you with us? That's Bloomberg technology anchor Emily Chang, and we're going to bring you the hearing when it finally gets underway on Capitol Hill. Meanwhile,

Are Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google Too Big?

"Four titans of Tech are expected to testify virtually to the House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust. Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google soon dark pitch high here to preview this star studded panel is our own star needs. Rachel Myrow, senior editor of Our Silicon Valley News desk. Hello, Rachel. Shocks. Hello, Brian. Just for context. Here is a challenge for the two of us who both worked at market place back in the day. Can you tell us how big these companies are without using a dollar figure Using a dollar figure? Okay. Facebook has roughly three billion with a B users across various social platforms. That's user numbers figure. Amazon controls 38% of US online sales. Wal Mart, For contrast, is Amazon's nearest competitors, not even 6% like not even in the game. Google process is about 90% of Web searches globally Apples APP store. You're there. You're nowhere in the apple universe. They take a 30% cut. 30%. Brian. Wow. You did it all right. Four very different companies. Four key parts of modern life and that raises for different sets of antitrust concerns, right It does indeed, And that face is big questions about what lawmakers hoped to accomplish with this hearing today, right? I mean, even though all of them are reportedly targets of probes by the Justice Department Coalition of State attorneys general, we could take all day talking about any one of these tech titans. All right. So let's pick one. Okay, I'll pick one. Amazon. You're a prime member, right? Yeah, me and just about everybody else in America. If I make and or market a product, I have to be on Amazon to sell it to America, and I have to pop up early in the rankings. When American shoppers search for my thing I have to pay Amazon to make that happen. Amazon, by the way, has been known to copy and prioritize marketing. Of its name brand version of popular third party products otherwise known as stealing or counterfeiting. Amazon also criticized for failing to shut down other counterfeiters. Let's say somebody else who shouldn't be making my product is making it and according to the Wall Street Journal fairly recently Amazon's venture capital fund steals ideas from tech start ups that pitch to it, So that's just a short list of things Amazon critics have to say about that company. Wow. So back to this question of why the House Judiciary subcommittee is holding this meeting today. Officially, it caps a big investigation. More than 1.3 million documents gathered. Yes, indeed. And I had to tell Brian it is anybody's guess. How much time Will actually be spent on that investigation. Despite that number of documents as opposed to the other hot, we hate tech topics like election security, hate speech and political bias. Wow. Well, Rachel, thank you. You bet. Cheese.
