"Like what are we gonna do with all this water the some pumps are moving it's collecting the catch basins are filled with flotsam jetsam gunk garbage you go into the subways just look down in the tracks those catch basins catch basins are filled with gunk flotsam jetsam garbage so why don't we clean them out on a regular basins why don't we do the maintenance doesn't mean we're not gonna have a collection of water and sometimes flooding but you do all of that then you are allowing for a clear flow of water into the water treatment plants and then eventually it getting released into the River Hudson the Atlantic Ocean and such but now you just have one massive collection of flotsam jetsam gunk and garbage in which the water has to nowhere go. Our number is 1 -800 -848 -9222. That's 1 -800 848WABC. I'll give you a perfect example if you happen to be living River along Road right there in Edgewood. There you go Underneath the George Washington Bridge on one side you got, we got Cliffside Park, you got Edgewater as you're heading now East you're heading towards Hudson County and you notice you go into that mall there where Trader Joe's is it's always underwater you could have like a half inch of rain and always flooded the cars get wiped out why the hell would people even park there when they know it's gonna rain? Yet they do. that's right near Roberto's I love that Italian restaurant there right on right on River Road. You know that far from where that boat they used to take out into the Hudson River and party party to the break of dawn and then it capsized what do they call that the Binghamton whatever happened to the Binghamton I know every time I'd be hitting Edgewater always looking for the Japanese there the sushi the sashimi there but you look out into the Atlantic make that the Hudson River and you wouldn't see a whale you wouldn't see a dolphin or a porpoise you'd see that capsized boat to Binghamton and I don't see it anymore what the hell happened to it did it go down to Davy Jones's locker why the hell time and time again you stopping that mall where Trader Joe's is in that parking lot and it's filled with water and there go all the cars why the hell would you even be parking there I mean that's a no -brainer 1 -800 -848 -9222 that's 1 -800 -848 -WABC and of course you go to the likely areas that are at sea level and oh my god the collection of water that still is there and the politicians pointing fingers and say well this is a result of global warming climate change yeah yeah yeah look you don't have an argument for me but if you got more rain coming down from high in the sky in more periods of time how come haven't we done the basic elementary rudimentary maintenance to clean out the catch basins to clean out the sewers and to make sure the water has a place to go common sense we don't do that anymore for many of you you must have remembered as kids they didn't call it the Department of Environmental Protection they called it the sewer department it was not a job than anybody wanted because you smelled like you were in the middle of a rendering plant and nobody wanted to come anywhere near you you stunk up the joint but you had to go down in the grime you had to make sure that every like a huge Roto -Rooter guy right you had to go down you there had to clean out the gunk to flotsam in the jetsam and make sure as Ed Norton said in the honeymooners that his job was to just keep everything moving along and when he can't move along and it gets all backed up where do you think it goes right through your slop sink right up your toilet right through your sink and all over your finished basement or your first floor or sometimes your entire house oh yeah the slop sinks up the turlish back up and nobody nobody decides to clean their sump that's the area that is drilled and dug into the ground beneath your basement it's the hole where the water drains into an area that can collect the water instead of force the water to back up into your basement into your first floor and then destroy what little you have from that crawlspace our number is 1 -800 -848 222 that's 1 -800 -848 -WABC today on the cats roundtable from 9 to 10 a .m. the second president

"Who is the Democrat, Senator Robert Menendez, that's it, in Hudson County. Senator from New Jersey. And the jury there, unanimously found not guilty. Because this prosecutor cuts corners. He encourages lawlessness among his staff. He reinterprets statutes, and misapplies them. That's what he does. And so very important actions must be taken. I've outlined some of them in the representation of President Trump. Now, the way it's headlined, of course, the New York Times, Trump lawyers seek indefinite postponement of documents drawn. It's not indefinite. They seek postponement a until sometime after the election. Now what will the government's response be? To this motion that's filed that says, hey, look, you're interfering with the election. This has never been done before. Our client's running for president of the United States. He can't spend half his time running for president, and half his time trying to stay out of a life sentence in federal prison. There's no need to do this now. What exactly could the government's answer be? They have all the documents. Thank They'll you. come up with some answer. You know why? Because they That's why. And here's what they know, and here's what I know. If Donald Trump's elected president, he can pardon himself on all of this stuff So the way Jack Smith and the Department of Justice, that is, the Biden administration looks at this is, we got to get this guy in prison during the course of the election. Now what's interesting to me is when you hear Republicans say, and you hear it from the Paul Ryan's of the world, you hear it from the Chris Sununu's of the world, the Karl Rove's of the world, in other words, the rhinos. And they say he's the only candidate who can lose Mr. Biden. Then why are the Democrats trying to cripple him during the course of the election if he's the only candidate who can lose? Wouldn't they let him go? Wouldn't they leave him alone? I'm the only one to mention this. In other words, doesn't he make any sense? I'll be right back.

America at night with rich valdes. All right, America, welcome back Again, our phone number 8 three three four valdes, 833-482-5337, our guest, New Jersey state assemblyman Robert off bob off is a legislator has a history of service in state government. As you guys know, I served in the Christian administration and I'm gonna get into some 2024 politics momentarily with assemblyman off. But I want to wrap up on this Menendez probe and how these new subpoenas that were issued with this halal meat business debacle that he may be embroiled in. Assemblyman tell us where you think this ends up and does Menendez get away from this. Does he beat this? Does this tank him? What's your thought? I was looking at the state party leader for the Democrats. We were at Jones. He's a pretty sage guy and he was he felt that they would be able to get through this. People have become accustomed to senator Menendez's integrity being questions with some regularity. And people in New Jersey, I think this is coming out early as a preventative measure to inoculate the public to this so that when he runs next year, there are already, oh, that's old news and then they're not really going to be affected by it. I think that's probably the end result of that. And he may or may not get convicted that I couldn't guess on. But I know from a political standpoint, this is probably a smart thing to do to let this stuff out early. So people have a chance to digest it and then lose to their memory on it because people's memory and politics is very short in New Jersey. Nationwide too. Yeah, exactly. But I will tell you one thing. There is a downside to this, he had a run in a primary last time and it starts with unknown came in and I don't remember the numbers but it was a surprisingly close primary compared to as she had no campaign whatsoever. This time there is a mayor from Roosevelt park, his name is Joseph signorello and he's going to run against bob Menendez in the primary this time out. So people are saying it's a stunt, but not necessarily. Things happen sometimes. Yeah, and when you're in a primary, you know, you take shots, right? It's softened you up, whether you like it or not. The other thing is true. You don't forget it's a lot of nepotism in Hudson county, bob Menendez, senior, the senator made sure his son got districted into a district where he could have his son become a congressman. There are a lot of people that were disenfranchised in the Hudson county democratic organization that are upset about that, given carrying order for a long time. And they felt like it was returned for the coronation. I missed it, but apparently they say it's very popular now. I'm not sure. I don't know too much about a son. Yeah, I know. Now, let's switch gears a little bit, and let's go to 2024 politics. We've got Trump that came in early in the race. Then there's speculation that desantis announces tomorrow on the Republican side. Then there's asa Hutchinson. There's Larry elder, there's Vivek ramaswami and there's Tim Scott. On the Republican side, what do you make of this? And do you think former New Jersey governor Chris Christie throws his hat in the ring? Wow. Well, for full disclosure, I've been an early Trump supporter back in 2016. I like the president. However, it's true that you were one of the first Republicans in New Jersey. I know to jump on the Trump train as I remember it. That's correct. And I was being laughed at and I just kept telling them, I'm going to have the last laugh. And I did, which was and didn't do that before governor Christie was running. When governor Christie was running, you worked for him. I campaigned for him when he ran and we really needed help insurance. He was a real breath of fresh year. For us, it's such a liberal state. He came in and really did a great job. And despite what the news tries to put her in about him, you know, if you're a solid Republican and you're doing a good job, they're doing everything they can to knock it down. They never gave a piece of positive press. But I worked for him in New Hampshire, but then when he didn't get the results, he was looking for I endorsed a president Trump right right now. This is kind of tough for me because just like you, you work for him. I campaign for him. I was in the legislature when he was a governor. I love the guy. And it's really tough to make a decision. He hasn't announced yet. So right now I'm supporting president Trump. Do you expect governor Christie to make an announcement anytime soon, or is he just, you know, waiting in the wings to see how this goes or what's your sense? Sure, acting like he's going to do it. I don't know. I'm sure he's got to be doing some polling. And from everything I've read, the polling doesn't look that good, but it's so early in the game and anything could happen. I think you've governor desantis gets in. It may make it a little bit more difficult for him to do that. I know he's been going after president Trump pretty much the leader of the pack, but for some reason president Trump doesn't make it, I'm thinking to myself, governor desantis is probably going to be the next guy who gets the Agones the most votes from a Republican primary. Now, let me ask you quickly before we run out of time in the music kicks in, there's a primary against Menendez, your term is two years as a state assemblyman. Have you put any thought into running for higher office and maybe challenging Menendez? Well, it would be a pretty big hurdle to overcome New Jersey has probably a million Democrats than Republicans. So the question is, are there enough Democrats that are going to be disenchanted with Biden because the president is going to be running in that cycle to that would swing over to a Republican in New Jersey and then would that candidate have coattails? That's one of the questions. And I think it's incumbent to go into the field with a poll to find out in New Jersey and are standing right now. I think the

"In Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Day three of former President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial gets underway this afternoon. House managers, led by Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin spent yesterday laying out their case against Trump. They argued Trump incited insurrection at the U. S. Capitol building on January 62 weeks before he left office and did nothing to stop the violence once it's started. Here's NPR's Carrie Johnson. Raskin says Trump had a duty to protect and defend the country in the Congress. Instead, he primed people with lies about this election fraud, sent them to the capital to fight and blasted the vice president while the attack was underway. The House's case is that this was all foreseeable. Some of the people involved in this riot at the Capitol were previously involved in violent incidents. In Texas and elsewhere, Trump's lawyers begin presenting their case tomorrow. Trump is the only president to be impeached twice. He was acquitted in his first trial a year ago while still in office on charges related to Ukraine.
