"Could have a real impact on the high stakes twenty twenty presidential election. Is. A game of inches not miles so is not about the ninety nine point, nine percent of the mail getting their timely it is that fraction of a percent which can make a difference in outcome of the election I was used as example, twenty, eight thousand people voted in the city of Detroit in two. Teen and a skip the top of the ticket and eighty percent black city. But Michigan was lost by less than eleven thousand. The outcome was buried in people who actually voted for whatever reason I skipped a top of the ticket. We have to be very clear. The loss of any volt is a threat to our democracy and we should not accept it as a normal was going to be okay it is not okay. Donald Trump has said that if you know if you expand know vote by mail that the Republicans may not win another election. The you think Mellon voting should be expanded or are there actual concerns that the more you expanded that there could be some plain above? Well in the midst of this statement is the problem. We should not fold our election process to meet the interest of a political party. The political party must meet interest of the voters. If your message in of your platforms are strong enough. Then it should attract people, but people should not be routed. Agree with you, and if they don't, then you put up barriers for their participation. Political parties are nothing but vehicles for agendas. And if the agendas that are making up the platform of the party in this moment is inadequate to attract the necessary support of the voting public. Then the public is not the problem, the agendas, the problem. You know obviously president trump's fingerprints are all over what we've been seeing happening. He's wage this war against the post office you know in in part because the Amazon connection, he wants them to charge more because he has a a vendetta against Jeff bezos But then again, the post office has had a tangle of financial difficulties over the years partly because of the way they have to fund upfront the pensions and everything. It's kind of a mess out there. Is there any chance that this is just purely bad optics right known affairs politics involved just the joy just trying to align the post offices financial state is there any chance at all? I, think it is a power grab for the current election to ensure that certain balance will be slowed or prevented from being considered Also think is a long term play around a set of private entities who seek to privatize as much of government as possible. Even the joy owns interest in a company that was doing business with the post office If you look at their whole funding model in their structure, Congress have tamper with the functions of the Pulse Office for years bexley crippling is ability to grow and develop, and yet it has persevere because it's such a durable American is. and. What's interesting about the post office is not being funded by tax dollars is actually running off the fees generate from the services, and so if you if you believe in a business model, allow the model that works for this agency to continue to grow in work in stop. Putting in place barriers to handicap is ability. To Service the American citizens. Derek for all the reasons you mentioned there's great concern about how black voters will be impacted by the changes made at the Postal Service but the postal service also employs a bunch of black folks right? Historically, the USPS has been a a ladder into the middle class for so many black people and black families. Is there any sense of how the joy changes in terms of cutting overtime and all the other things he's done? WILL IMPACT BLACK POSTAL WORKERS You know the post office outside of this they've been under a consistent attack by many in the conservative movement. It is a governmental function has been successful as an American institution but for the legislative bodies taking the resources out of the post office enforcing the boss officer operate on a shoestring yet, they still have been consistently productive. It is a true ladder to middle class African Americans you know are are are we call coming out of high school and people were aggressively seeking a job at the post office as they were considering how to navigate through college and most people who got the job at the post office? That they have steady employment could benefits and the ability to secure health insurers no the between the pulse office in the military those were the ladders for impoverished communities particularly after American communities to really out a living for their family and build out their communities. So, as the end P pushes forward with his lawsuit against the US S. Early last week the joy agree to suspend all cost cutting measures nine on. Friday while testifying the Congress. He made it clear that the postal service will prioritize ballots overall other male. But as you put forward, what else are you looking for for the USPS to do that they haven't already conceded? Is something else Well absolutely, the harm that was caused must be restored you have to repair you have to put those machines by place you need to have a plan of execution to ensure mail delivered timely, and this is not just about the election. These are about individuals who depend on delivery of the postal service for their medications and veterans and others is all. Goes Beyond Ambala it goes through the quality of life that people have grown accustomed to, and some of that is based on the timely delivery of their male. That's why in recent polling you see of seventy eighty percent of people support the post office, and some of the changes that has been done probably will be detrimental to all those who are responsible. So as as you consider the history of the postal service and you consider just how important their role actually is every single day. Even when we're not in an election year is the fight you are waging on behalf of voters about you know more than just twenty twenty. What are you actually fighting for? Or fighting for. The voting, we don't want people to have to make a decision between their life or their health and their right to vote who wants options on the table. But I think what has happened also as opened up the long-term term conversation around the postal service that the systemic attacks on the postal service, over the last twenty years has now come to light. So I think this is step one and we're going to be successful in this. The fact that the house went in on a Saturday in the midst of this pandemic after they had already left for their recess comeback and vote for five billion dollar package that speaks volumes I hope that after this cycles over, we take it out of the partisan consideration we have a system that people have unfettered access to Poli. We must be a representative democracy we cannot spread the message of freedom abroad we not practicing it at home. That was NWC W. C. P. President Derek Johnson along with veteran mail handler J.

"So with this of Maly pulled together. Data right without with the lack of that yet to be kind of intrepid and go out there as tracking the data yourself. Walk through how you did that. And what exactly you found so basically we just. We protest every single state health department with the same set of questions regarding the number facilities that have been affected The number of people who had died You know other kinds of details. And we just put them together. Spreadsheet with this spreadsheet that has has grown engrossing grown over time as the numbers obviously keeps inching when we first started tracking these deaths and the the facilities that have had outbreaks. We got responses from twenty four states. That's in total in twenty four states. More than twenty. Two hundred people had died since that time. More and more states have been providing this data in part because of the public pressure that folks from the media from from family members from legislators others have been putting on public officials for more transparency into the crisis in nursing homes. So now we're up to forty two states that are reporting corona virus deaths in terms of following the data. Involved the numbers. What are the numbers actually look like in terms of deaths associated with these long term care facilities? The latest numbers that we have as of this week is that it's over. Twenty thousand deaths. Twenty thousand twenty thousand associate with Kirk care facilities and so that is about a roughly a quarter of all known. Cova deaths but many folks I think a growing number are expecting the share of Cova deaths associated with nursing homes and long term care facilities to ultimately be higher in certain states. You already seen that Massachusetts in Delaware More than a half or more of of Cronin virus associated with long term care facilities. So it's it's a significant number but again that that's almost certainly an undercount. What kind of response has your reporting generated so? My inbox is filled with stories from people directly affected by this from across the country. I've gotten emails from from folks who say that. They did not know until their loved one had died that they were even infected From staff members who are going to work every day despite the risk despite lack of But there's also been response from From lawmakers From folks in Congress are reporting Was cited in multiple letters that members of Congress have sent to the trump administration demanding greater transparency demanding greater tracking efforts And the federal government since we began reporting is in the very early stages I would say actually undertaking that effort so under the federal rules facilities are only required to report cases to the family members of the resident who's infected so if your loved one becomes Infected with or has suspected case. That person's family members are required to be notified but not all the other family members at the facility so on April nineteenth the federal government any White House events with top health officials. President trump announced that they would finally begin tracking corona virus defections and facilities require those facilities to report cases to all family members. So those new rules were unveiled with great fanfare weeks ago. Nearly three weeks ago at this point there's been weeks long delay in that time in three weeks that the federal government waited to put these rules into effect. According to our count. Thirteen thousand people have died but that data is actually not going to be released until the estimate the end of the month so we won't actually have a comprehensive picture until the end of May what are what are they saying so you have. Thousands and thousands of people are dying across the country. We know where these continue to spread music very vulnerable populations. But they're saying hey we're trying our they nothing. Anything would respond to. They give the response we initially got was. This will happen very soon within days. Then we followed up. Pays this happening? No it's actually not happening. The federal government also promised on April thirtieth that they would send through FEMA. Pp One week supply of P. P. to every single nursing home in the country so far the latest. We've we've heard is that five percent of the shipments have been received. One thing that I did hear from one of my sources. You know health policy expert at the Kaiser. Family Foundation was that the federal officials couldn't decide who was going to take the lead. But you know the question still lingers there though okay I understand that Eurocracy can get in the way their technical questions that need to be answered but this is an absolute emergency. People are dying across the country. Tens of thousands of them are dying. Millions of family members are wondering is my loved one safe. What does he think it says about us as a society and who we value and what we place value in? Obviously the absolute front line of this crisis was always gonNA be hospitals and it makes sense that that they should have priority for things like p. p. e. for things like testing for federal attention dollars. But we've made a decision not to make folks who live in nursing homes and long term care facilities in the families who loved them and the staff who worked there. We've decided not to make them the most urgent priority. I think that's clear you know this is. This is the consequence of a lack of planning and the consequence of a lack of preparation and effectively. This is what's happened They've been delegated to a lower priority And we've seen the tragic consequences of that. What advice would you give for? Other people out there who had family and loved one the nursing homes. Who are just dealing with the uncertainty and the fear and the concern over covert nineteen. I think that my advice would be tried to get what information you can. So you have an idea of what you know what you don't know and that there are folks that you can appeal to not just inside the facility and the facility may or may not be super cooperative but folks on the local level and the county level coup may also have concerns may be able to provide at least some visibility into what's happening but I also think it's also worth acknowledging what you can't control because otherwise you just you know you feel paralyzed and at least that. That was the approach that that I tried to take to figure out what I know and then just kind of learn in a way to accept what I could or couldn't control susie. Thank you so much.

"Two were ardent trump supporters and the other two were Democrats and I was really struck by it. Because you know we talk so much about how divided this country is and somehow they're able to make it work and I would. Maybe there's a lesson in there for the rest of us think he's GonNa Save the world. The money's the family that's divided. The Dad took a transfer from one plant to another holly money. Says THEY WON'T BE SUPPORTING THE PRESIDENT? He is the president of the United States. So you can't you have to respect them that way but we are just. He could have done a lot more for the middle class rather than the upper class. He came here. Said don't sell your house. General Motors is going to be here. Maybe in cars and then a few months later it was closing. People are losing their jobs. Families had to move so any promises that he's made for our area. He did not keep last week they still had a decided which Democratic candidate they would vote for this Tuesday. I asked Erin whether any of this change in Lordstown feels like a good thing for their family. I mean there's some hope on the horizon potentially for the community and you know they're they're watching that but it doesn't really apply to them because there might be new jobs but Kevin Money you know he. He's looking toward retiring. Were with full benefits from GM. And there's only one way to retire with full benefits from GM and that's worth five more years at GM. So from their perspective is a little bit irrelevant. You know what's going on because their fate has already been determined. You know his job is gone and the only way he can continue to have. That job is to commute to Toledo. I missed my dad and most and most and I'm getting ready to go down for the night. All the fear unsoundness wash over me like a wave. I'll get think about is how US alone did in a different city alone. Thou- As to protect him and Mary here without him to protect us with all my Dulcie. My father everyday. If you'll see a piece of our lives of our piece of our lives are missing. Him knows when the peace will come back. Come back in place maybe. Gm will reopen with a new vehicle. Make maybe congressman. Tim Ryan will become president and get something back here for us. Many we will eventually have to move up. Some others to because of the stress of broken families need it to be avoided. There is no answer yet. All I can say the money families Sean. We live in hope that we all live at strong family. The economy changes. And we don't always talk about kind of how that trickles down and affects the kids. But you know. Here's this one family with this one story about you. Know how a decision made by a corporation based on business projections kind of trickles down and affects the way.

"I mean given given the fact that he's been through this impeachment and it has not derailed him completely. I think there's a a certain strengthen that yet I think this story still yet to be told on that in that he is a candidate who has politically lyrically. Made such a big deal about the idea of being a victim of rigged systems and representing people who are victims victims of rigged systems. And what you see in the United States Senate is that When he did something that even members of his own party say was wrong or inappropriate? Or in the case of Marco. Rubio suggesting that perhaps he should have been impeached for it but not removed from office. He is basically getting off because the system is run by members of his own party who have decided not to even hear all of the evidence against against him He is the beneficiary of a system that the Democrats would say as rigged and is certainly a wind in his favor right now and I think it makes it a lot harder from from tim to make his sort of number one political argument heading into the next election it by the way. You're out there in Iowa. Democrats are casting. I guess they're not technically glee ballots but the first registering of preference in the twenty twenty Primary season taking place in these caucuses in Iowa voters talking about out there when you talk to them is does impeachment. Come up or is this Is it something else. It only comes up to the To the degree that reporters asked about it and occasionally Voter Alaska reporter with what's going on in Washington. It's not A. It's not really the thing voters here are thing about. I I you know I really truly. I think the voters here are split. I think they want to hear about Solutions that candidates have for particular particular problems. You know whether it's health care or particular economic issues and for the most part they're interested in who's going to be Donald Trump but I think there are the number of caucus goers here who were pretty much in the mode of the caucus winner doesn't matter nearly as much as the November election and if it's Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders people judge or you know whoever they know they're gonNA show up to vote against Donald Trump in in November one way or the other. Yeah it doesn't seem like a a lot of these caucus goers or maybe Democratic primary voters are itching for a major blood bat in their own party primary but We will see as you say it begins tonight. And we'll see how it plays out Jon Allen Senior political analyst for NBC News. Thanks for joining us. Took one more thing to note today. The Senate officially moved into legislative session. This allows senators to get up from their seats including those senators that needed to get get Iowa and it means that Chief Justice John Roberts also does not need to remain in the chamber for the entirety of the day after the conclusion of those closing arguments. The senators were given time to give. What are known as deliberation speeches on the Senate floor? That's where they announced their stance for or against the removal of the president. Hunter the Great State of Alaska the president's behavior with shameful and wrong the response to the president's behavior is not to disenfranchise nearly sixty three million Americans and remove him from the ballot.

"So speaking of this this news Shan in the reporting about what is in John Bolton's book. It raises the question. If this is even going to be part of the Senate trial is John Bolton GonNa be partisan at trial willoughby witnesses. Will he be called if there are witnesses. We've talked about this a lot on here for Democrats To get witnesses witnesses into this trial to get a Bolton or somebody else. Democrats need to stand together in the Senate and they need four Republicans to break over and join them on those votes. We've been going through it and it's been been hard to see exactly which for that might be but there is the question now whether this Bolton News Might Jarrah few loose a few critical Republican votes lose for Democrats. Are you seeing any signs that might be in the works here. Yes definitely the issue of witnesses specifically John Bolton as a witness seems much more likely today than it did on Friday and you know I know there has been talk of witnesses all along as you mentioned but there's definitely been some senators who've been leaning in the direction of witnesses and we got a better sense of what they're thinking is on that again. Today Susan Collins came out reporting on John unfolds in string and the case for witnesses and has prompted a number earth stations. We heard Romney come out saying he wants to hear from John Bolton essentially a story that came out yesterday it's it's increasingly apparent that it would be important to hear from John Bolton I of course make a final decision on witnesses. After we've heard from Natalie the prosecution but also the defense but I think at this stage. It's pretty fair to say that John Bolton has a relevant testimony to provide to those of us who are sitting in impartial just a couple of others senators hitters. We've heard weigh in Lisa Murkowski All at another name out there that we're watching Lamar Alexander which As of now I don't believe he spoke out on this but he's another one who could defect so it definitely seems. The momentum is starting to really head in that direction and the John. Bolton News is certainly pushed a lot of senators in that way and is is gonNA put pressure on them politically because you see news reports. If you're a voter out there about what Bolton says in his book and what you're reading in The New York Times or seen on NBC. See News will. You're going to want to hear that right out of his mouth and there's going to be this question of well. Why not? Why not let him testify that I think a lot of these moderate senators in the Middle Arkan have to answer answer that question from their constituents? That's interesting though. I do wonder if that sets up. The potential for friction between trump and and some of these Republicans. Maybe even Mitch McConnell I if it were to come to what you're describing there just in that We've seen this. President have no hesitation to go after his own party if he thinks they are wrong. Him and I imagine he's not eager to have John Bolton be a part of this If they were to cast a vote that sort of opens the door to that. I wonder if there'd be awesome We'd see some division in the Republican side. Well the White House is hoping that if the door to witnesses does get opened with John Bolton that they will argue that they should be able to call their own witnesses. And that that's when you get into a hunter Biden situation or a situation where they can then call their own witnesses that they hope will exonerate all right the president now. There's no guarantee that necessarily going to happen because the senators are the ones who get to decide but it yes it could be a real moment where you have to see some real daylight between the president and the Senate but again at the end of the day the the White House does feel like they will be able to defend themselves and that's still at the end of this process. The president will be acquitted. They will head injury election and they will be able to run on a whole myriad of other issues outside outside of impeachment and get the president reelected that way. What would witnesses due to the timeline of this trial I I mean I've heard suggestions that without witnesses? This could wrap up really fast. I have even heard people suggest the end of this week without witnesses but but if there were a vote to have witnesses how long would that extend trial for. Well that is the question. Every reporter order in Washington wants to know and we were all like doing the math on our phones as weekend realizing this could be done by Friday or Saturday potentially Is So if there is a a John Bolton Subpoena and the White House asserts executive privilege it goes to the courts and that could really take weeks even an expedited process process and while that waits in the courts. I don't know exactly what happens. I'm assuming the trial just gets put on hold and everyone in. The Senate goes back to their regularly scheduled programing programming but yes there is definitely potential with witnesses that this trial could still be overhanging. The president during his State of the Union on February fourth. It it could still be hanging out there. During the primaries during the New Hampshire primaries during South Carolina during these key election primaries that are going on for the Democrats. So just sort out of uncharted territory. And we're really just taking it. I think here one day at a time Iran. Sometimes one hour at a time waiting to see what's going to happen next. Pretty big pivot point coming up then either. This thing wraps up quickly or it goes on for a while. We'll find out looks like later this week. Shannon petty piece senior White House reporter for NBC. Thanks so much for joining honest.

"Also don't know whether that push for witnesses will be successful given these credibility credibility issues we've been talking about with parks. Given the potential incentive. He has to inflate perhaps his importance to to this investigation allegation to other investigations just in pursuit of some kind of leniency for the other legal issues that he faces is that a consideration for Democrats in terms of potentially pushing thing for him as a witness that that. Hey maybe if you look a little further if you put him more under the microscope there might be some more unflattering stuff here that detracts from from the stories telling. Yeah I think it this Steve. Because if he comes forward and says something particularly if it's under oath in the Senate that are then able to be disproven even if ninety nine percent of the things things that he says are borne out by documents and are accurate if that remaining one percent is able to be successfully questioned that's GonNa Hand Republicans a pretty powerful argument to say. This guy can't be trusted. You know you're bringing in fake witnesses and that really. All of his testimony should be discounted actually blow back on Democrats that having been said. This just is the fact of the matter when you have unscrupulous characters who are recounting in investigations. What they know? Oh I don't think we're necessarily going to see. Democrats dismissed out of hand. Just because there are questions about his credibility I think the question then politically becomes these Republicans were always talking about potential swing voters when it comes to particular witnesses when it comes to the the ultimate question of trump's fate but I'm thinking this week of Martha Martha mcsally In her sort of Dismissive we'll put it that way. Dismissive response to a reporter asking about this. Susan Collins from Maine. She didn't seem I'm too eager to go down this road. Does it suggest that those swing Republican Senators Democrats need to change the scope of the trial have not been swayed by by what par and this is put forward. Well there have more work to do but all of these new details that are coming to light just as the senators are starting. Their trial are putting putting more pressure on Republicans to consider having witnesses. Because it's making it harder for them to argue. Look we already know what happened. The House had their opportunity And and interviewed people. There's no need to relive that. Now we're seeing there's new stuff we really didn't know about and their legitimate reasons why that wasn't included rooted in the house process namely the fact that the White House completely prohibited any of its officials from testifying before Congress so. I don't think that we have yet. Seen some of those vulnerable. Senators give categorical comments. That they do want and are willing to allow witnesses is but they are suggesting some open to it. Particularly Susan Collins and Mitt Romney and we'll have to see in the in the first couple of weeks of the trial whether Democrats are able to create a compelling enough case that ultimately they will vote against their leader Mitch McConnell with Democrats to allow additional witnesses and evidence and by this time next week we will be in full swing. That Senate Trial Josh. Thank you for shedding some light on this very complicated topic really appreciate it. Thanks Steve. This morning we got word that Ken Starr and Alan.

"Declare war Because they think in part they realized that it was the executive who had the ability to make war And that that and I think more properly coincided with this commander in chief title that the framers gave the president but this is an ongoing debate. And like I said earlier it's GonNa go on long after Donald Trump Is Out of office there. There's another element to all this too. We talk about here As well and that is how the public is processing all of this right now. Their reaction to everything There was a survey last year. Actually it's two years ago now. I forgot that it's now twenty. Twenty two thousand eighteen survey From Georgetown University versity that looked at Americans in their trust in institutions and it actually found there was pretty strong trust in a private company in Amazon But there was very little trust when it came to the executive branch came to the presidency When it came to Congress for that matter probably should acknowledge also very little trust trust when it came to the media? I I wonder listening to you. Describe the oath of office that you took how Salam the occasion felt to you how meaningful it felt to you. Do you sense as the public watches all of this that there is a cynicism that has taken hold that affects the actions of our you leaders. I think that's a fair way to think about it Steve. You know I've always said skepticism is fine and fact skepticism healthy. Cynicism I think is corrosive of and there seems to be a cynicism settling in as really ashamed because those institutions that you just mentioned right the institutions of government and the media via Are Among the most important institutions in the United States. They've kept US safe. They've made sure that we have equal. And Civil Rights enforce the law. They conduct intelligence. They operate the courts. These are some of the most important things we do as a society and for us to lose trust in those institutions Russians for that cynicism to sort of take hold at sad I think it may be deeply unfortunate and I think it can be highly corrosive and I worry About that Chuck Rosenberg. You've made our first crossover episode here in the MSNBC podcasting world a success. Thank you so much for joining us. Oh It's my pleasure. Thank you for having the Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell and minority leader Chuck Schumer both addressed impeachment on the Senate floor today. Senator McConnell argued that the structure of the Senate trial should follow the same format. It was used for president. Clinton's impeachment trial just like twenty years ago. We should address mid-trial questions such as witnesses after opening arguments Sarah questions and other relevant motions there is. Senator Schumer responded. I just heard leader McConnell. Speak for thirty minutes on the subject of the president's impeachment went there was a lot of finger pointing name calling and misreading of history but not a single argument or discussion about the issue. And that's holding up a Senate trial whether there will be witnesses and documents not one mention. He has no good argument against having witnesses and documents so he resorts to these subterfuges. There doesn't seem to be much agreement there. We will see what happens when the full Senate is back in session on on January. Sixth but in the meantime if you want to know more about how the Senate trial might play out. Check out this past. Monday's episode of article two from earlier. This week article.

"Is a good faith. Disagreement between the two sides about where the line might exist as a general sort of principle matter in a normal circumstance you might let the court fight. Play out to try to get to the Supreme Court and see what the ruling would be between the two branches but what the Democrats are saying is. The president has engaged in a blanket. Refusal to comply number one. So that's very different than what you've seen in past investigations where the president might refuse to have one or two witnesses show up. Might refuse to provide some documents. This president has provided zero documents has refused to allow any of the witnesses to appear with the exception of those who have chosen on their own to defy the president and appear so number one. That's the difference in number two what the Democrats are saying. There's some credence to this. Is that the. The President Strategy here is to further obstruct the investigation by forcing court jam up so to speak that that he could basically ride out impeachment for any number of years the argument. Why don't you just wait a mouse to this? Why don't you just let him cheat in one more election? Why not let him cheat just one more time? Why not let him have four help just one more time? That is what that argument amounts to so rather than go through that process or even really start to go through how much of that process. They've decided that it was better to to move now and not take this deep into the next election or even into possibly a second term or into the term of the next Democratic president didn't make sense that this was something that needed to be done and resolved quickly so Democrats late the articles of impeachment. They're bringing against the president. What what are we hearing from the president and from Republicans in response the White House response Coming from Stephanie Stephanie Grisham. The White House spokeswoman was Long and somewhat angry and not at all surprising kind of repetitive of what we've heard before said that it's a predetermined sham impeachment basically said that they're trying to overthrow the trump administration And we've heard that before his well on the other hand on Capitol Hill There's a lot more complaining about process. They argue the president has Done nothing wrong and they also argue that everything. Everything was fine and not impeachable. They've held up a pretty strong wall. And in some cases they have argued that the investigations. He was seeking in Ukraine. Were we're not politically aimed. I mean it's sort of a smorgasbord or spaghetti defense if you will from Republicans on the hill but that's to be expected congressional. All allies of a president often are are there to be the dinner throwers in thinking back to that initial vote to authorize the impeachment inquiry. This has been a two WHO and a half month process at this point. That looks like it is coming to a head in the house within the next week looking back at these last two and a half months. I'm just curious. You've been following this so closely. He is there a moment. Is there an incident. Is there an instance that that really stands out to you in an says something about this process. It's it's one that we're waiting for which is going to be that actual vote on the House floor such a such a solemn moment when they actually call for that I vote on impeaching the president. And you know it starts out that these fights are so partisan and sometimes seemingly childish clownish behavior in the committee rooms at times but around the capital in times. Like these when there's a big vote coming when there's a lot riding on something you start to feel the weight of the country and the seriousness around members and I think back to the to the financial bailout the economy writing on that or the a c a vote so I actually think that will be the moment when they come to actually come together on the House floor to cast those votes will probably be the moment to remember two and a half months. It's almost like a schoolyard. Fight that you've been waiting waiting for and I don't mean to diminish it in those terms but the tension building and building and building and then you know. Finally the event happens you kind of have to look at where you are afterward. Lord you're not the first to like an American politics to a school yard or school lunch room. So don't worry there Jon Allen Political Reporter. NBC News always great to talk to you. Thanks for joining us.

"All right let's move on to the third one in the third potential article and this one's interesting because if I'm understanding correctly this brings us back to the Miller report. The mother investigation you're talking about obstruction of justice and this would be in relation to molar. Is that right right and it could. Actually we have some focused on Ukraine. And this one is is I think where there is some of the most difficult decisions sessions to be made. Because in the Miller report there were ten to eleven different counts of potential obstruction. And this is why this is separate from on contempt of Congress Steve because those counts of obstruction have nothing to do really with Congress they have to do with the President United States obstructing acting our law enforcement agencies which are supposed to be separate under our constitution. They are not supposed to be acting as his personal personal legal vehicles. The question there is whether you put obstruction put a separate obstruction article of and whether you include in Ukraine and Russia and that or just the Russia investigation so lots there to still be ironed out. I think a more basic question here though is why would Democrats go back to the well So to speak when it comes to molar I mean this is something that occupied two. Plus years of American political life. You had the report you had his testimony in front of Congress. You had polling at that. Point that showed country was not on board with impeachment to the degree it now is not nearly to the degree. It now is after digesting. All of the sort of the molar drama the molar colors saga. So why after going through all of that and why at the end of the Ukraine component of this would Democrats returned Muller. Well it's actually believe it or not a lot of members within the caucus who feel that. It's the principle of it and they believe that this is all for history and for holding the president accountable for history. But there's the politics side of this which is compelling that if you put too much in there you may make make it harder for some of these vulnerable Democrats because that impression as you point to in the polls has been formed. It's solidified and it's a reality galaxy. So you have this tug within the caucus between members who believe that we had this two year investigation which which came back with shocking incidences of obstruction of justice and on principle those should be included about the political calculations based on the number of the articles that are ultimately introducing. I'm thinking back to the Clinton impeachment and and it it it seemed that Republicans back then impeaching Bill Clinton Kinda through a lot of things against against the wall to see what would stick not every article they introduced ended up passing the house in. There's been some talk right now with Democrats in these vulnerable members that you're talking about that. Perhaps they would throw in ray of articles of impeachment out there that would allow some of these moderate potentially vulnerable Democrats to say. Hey I voted against this article of impeachment. I voted against that article of impeachment. Where they could they could vote no on one or two of them and still have at least one article pass? Is that part of the thinking at all absolutely and that's why this is an art of how they draw these up for instance. Let's say you include Ukraine obstruction and Russia. Russia instruction in one article that can make it difficult from for members. But let's say you separate them out and you make it easier for some of these frontline online Democrats to say. Hey I voted for abuse of power. I voted for contempt. Congress because those things are so clear cut but on that Muller stuff I believe that you you know the under there was an underlying crime there and so I voted against that and so these are the decisions that will be made over the next week or two as to how this is all well formulated and you better believe that. There's going to be a lot of political calculations as well that go into that even though you can't really look through the scene glass at this point and and understand where the polling is going to be impeachment a year from now until you press Bella is NBC correspondent covering politics and government. Thanks for joining us. Heidi thank kissed. The White House announced. Today it will not be mounting a defense in the house impeachment inquiry. This was in response to a deadline imposed posed by the Judiciary Committee for the end of the day today house. Republicans in their staff will continue to stand in as the president defense during Monday's hearing but if articles of impeachment commit do reach the Senate you can expect a different response from the administration then White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told Fox News today that the president wants his case. He's made fully in that trial trial. He welcomes it he wants. The American can senator absolutely wants to bring forward serious witnesses like the whistleblower like Adam Schiff like hunter and Joe Biden. If they're going to do this if the Democrats want this fight is something the president is willing to have so we can expect some fireworks if if this does indeed reach the Senate but that likely won't be for another couple of weeks.

"Long term damage to to some of the most notable Republicans who were with Nixon till the end or till very close to the end that included George H W Bush that included Bob Dole they were obviously able to survive survive politically the damage of Watergate. And they were able to even thrive in the future and obviously the question then is does that have any any relevance to today in the telling of that maybe maybe you can see. There's there's a pretty significant difference between where things stand with trump right now and where they stood with Richard Nixon at the end the overwhelming majority of Americans by Ah the end wanted Nixon gone. Wanted him impeach. Thought the Senate should convict him. If it came to a Senate trial that is not where polling is on trump. There are plenty of Americans who do want him impeached in do want him removed from office but really the result of polling on trump and impeachment. Right now look a lot like the results of the two thousand sixteen presidential election that same basic divide is there and and again within the Republican Party trump still retains the overwhelming. I'm talking about ninety percent here. Overwhelming support of Republican voters. They are overwhelmingly opposed to impeachment again. The end by the end with Richard Nixon even Republicans. Even a large number of Republican. Voters turned on him. That is one of the things that made the nineteen seventy four midterm so disastrous for Republicans. It's hard to believe. The impeachment inquiry was launched two months ago. A lot is happening and we want you to keep asking asking questions so remember our email. It is article two PODCAST AT G.

"To try to muddy the waters by introducing into the minds of those watching at home The idea that the you know well look the Russians meddled Ukrainians medaled This is all just very messy and potentially people kind of throw up their hands and say I don't really know what to make of this But that it looks less Like a single cited problem for Republicans Big Picture here coming into these hearings. The public opinion on impeachment looked like it. Had IT SORTA stalemated the big question. Is Ben Will the hearings all of this being in public will the move public opinion decisively. One way or the other We're at at the end of the first week of it. We had two days of open public hearings this week. Bunch more to come next week but at the end of this first week what is your what is your sense. Talking from folks on both sides of the aisle does either party after this first week of public hearings think. The needle is moving in a meaningful way. Well Democrats do and they thought the today's hearing in particular which erupted in applause at the end for ambassador was a particularly emotionally hard hitting hearing hearing that made their case come alive for people even in a way that hearing a couple of days ago that was much. More technical. Didn't tug at the heartstrings. So obviously it's way too early for us to know how and whether that will be reflected in the polls that are being done on support for impeachment but I have been talking with the trump administration official. Who's been working on impeachment? Who says that? They're watching these goals very closely. And they're comparing them to the polls that were done about Supreme Prem- Court Justice Brett Cavanaugh ahead of his confirmation. When there was that whole drag-out fight in the Senate and they're still seeing so far that similar to with Cavanaugh the public's really divided on this and they think as long as the public is divided? They're probably okay. But that if those numbers start to budge even a little bit that they could could start to see some of those vulnerable Republican. Senators like Cory Gardner Martha mcsally potentially feel like it's politically in their interest to Side with Democrats in that would set up a whole different situation when it comes to if there is a vote to remove the president in the Senate I think we will all be watching closely closely when those first numbers. I poll numbers after these public hearings. Come Out Josh Letterman national political reporter for NBC News. Thank you for joining us. Thanks Dave and as we're taping this episode David.

We're hearing a lot of concern and things -iety. And I think that. Borne out of here. I feel a little disappointing. When it comes to segregation, some say, a sledgehammer is exactly what's needed. Jessica Gould, WNYC news, the US women's national soccer team has a game this Sunday against Mexico at red bull's arena in Harrison, New Jersey. If their final tuneup before heading off to France for the World Cup tournament where they will be the defending champions WNYC reporter, Jim O'Grady and takeaway producer. Isabel angel debate at the US women's chances of winning it all, again Isabelle. I like you very much. I love the us women's national team of rooting for them like crazy. But I have some big concerns, Jim, we're going to do it. You should not be worried. Okay. Well, here are my concerns. You look at the twenty three player roster and their old not the average age. That's twenty eight same as last time in two thousand fifteen but the age of core players like Megan repeat, no thirty. Three becky. Sauerbrun. Thirty-three Carli, Lloyd. Remember she was the hero of the last World Cup. She's thirty six years old now. And that's all for soccer is the problem. Karl Lloyd is actually a sub this time. So she's not going to be running around for the full ninety minutes, but Carli Lloyd plays best when she's a chip on her shoulder and right now, being relegated to a sub is like the biggest chip, you could possibly imagine for her. So I think we could see her coming off the bench and doing some really, really great things she's gonna play angry. Oh, she'll play very angry. Who else besides Carli, Lloyd? Let me she's old news. Yeah. So right now, we have Alex Morgan, she's just in her prime right now. She's crushing, it goals assists in almost all of her last games over the last year. Okay. So as you know the World Cup happens every four years and inbetween players age out, and they retire like the great Abby Wambach. So the coach Jill LS she needed to get fresh blood on this team. She said she was looking for players with the psychological strength to not, quote melt. In the pressure, cooker does she have those kinds of players. I think that's why she went with these older players like Ali Krieger, who was part of the department of defense of the twenty fifteen World Cup which was part of the reason why they won Alice went with her, because she has the experience over some of the other players, she could've taken, and you're telling me that there's also new talent definitely so fans should particularly be paying attention to twenty four year old rose Lavelle. She is the person who has kind of taken over Carli Lloyd slot as the ten as a central midfielder, the playmaker, she has the creativity and finesse that Jill Ellis has always wanted for her American team. Now, the problem is, she is untested at this stage and she is prone injuries, but overall you should look for her to be a creative playmaker in the middle usually like to Mallory Pugh to come in off the bench. And he's expected to score a lot. You could see Julie Roberts used to play in the back. But she is now moved up to a defensive midfielder. And there's no unlike her she can play defense she can score she can do it all. Okay. Fair enough. But what about goalie the crucial position of goalie for years? The US women have this huge advantage with hope solo the best keeper in the world. She's gone. Now they can't rely on her as the last line of defense anymore. Where I would say, I am a little bit worried, but the new keeper stepping up. Here is a listen Nair. She did not see any minutes in the two thousand fifteen World Cup. But she's very solid. She actually has some pluses over solo. She plays better with her feet out of the back, which is something that head coach Ellis loves, you know, if you're gonna be big test for her. So here's another thing in two thousand fifteen when the US women won the World Cup against Japan in the final. They had just a lockdown defense. That's not the same now. It's not as good as it used to be. No. And so the way they're going to win this time is by scoring a lot of goals, and they have the people to do it. Kristen press off the bench. Alex Morgan, Megan repeat. Oh, we're going to see some stuff out of them. All right. And parody is creeping into the women's game last World Cup. Maybe I don't know four countries at a chance to beat the US. It could be ten or more this time around and the US is not invulnerable Sweden knocked them out in the two thousand sixteen Olympics in the quarterfinals. Yeah. I mean we gotta watch out for France, Germany, England Japan, Australia. Salia. I mean, the list goes on this time, Canada, which always launched the chance to be at the United States still with Marta, Brazil with Marta. I mean, they always have a good chance against the United States. But Jim who's number one, that would be the United States women's team. Yeah, that's right. All right. Last thing, the US women's soccer team right now. It's suing the governing body of American soccer for gender discrimination. They say they want equal pay that the men's team gets is this going to be a distraction during the tournament, you know, I think you could think of it that way. But the best thing that the women can do is to win prove the US soccer that they're the best in the world again that they bring in the money again, and that they are one of the most powerful forces in soccer in the world. That's takeaway producer, Isabel angel with WNYC reporter, Jim O'Grady the women's World Cup starts June. Seventh in Paris. It's time now for our documentary of the week from Tom powers and Rafael a house and co founders of the dunk NYC festival, and the pure, nonfiction film series and podcast.

I think that's why she went with these older players like Allie Krieger, who was part of the department of defense of the twenty fifteen World Cup which was part of the reason why they won else went with her because she has the experience over some of the other player, she could have taken telling me that there's also new talent definitely so fans should particularly be paying attention to twenty four year old rose Lavelle. She is the person who has taken over Carli Lloyd slot as the ten as a central midfielder, the playmaker, she has the creativity and finesse that Jill has always wanted for her American team. Now. The problem is, she is untested at this stage and she is prone injuries but overall you should look for her to be a creative playmaker in the middle. You look to Mallory Pugh to come in off the bench and he's expected to score a lot. You could see Julie Erz used to play. In the back, but she is now moved up to a defensive midfielder. And there's no one likes her. She can play defense. She can score. She can do it all. Okay. Fair enough. But what about goalie the crucial position of goalie for years? US women had this huge advantage with hope solo the best keeper in the world. She's gone. Now they can't rely on her as the last line of defense anymore. I would say, I am a little bit worried, but the new keeper stepping up. Here is a listen Nair. She did not see any minutes in the two thousand fifteen World Cup. But she's very solid. She actually has some pluses over solo. She plays better with her feet out of the back, which is something that head coach Ellis loves, you know, if going to be big test for her. So here's another thing in two thousand fifteen when the US women won the World Cup against Japan in the final. They had just a lockdown defense. That's not the same now. It's not as good as it used to be. No. And so the way they're going to win this time is by scoring a lot of goals, and they have the people to do it. Kristen press off the bench. Alex morgan. Megan repeat. No, we're gonna see some stuff out of them. All right. And parody is creeping into the women's game last World Cup may be four countries at a chance to beat the US. It could be ten or more this time around and the US is not invulnerable Sweden. Knock them out in the two thousand sixteen Olympics in the quarterfinals. Yeah. I mean we gotta watch out for France. Germany, England Japan Australia. I mean, the list goes on this time, Canada, which always wants the chance to be at the United States with Marta, Brazil with Marta. I mean, they always have a chance against the United States. But Jim who's number one, that would be the United States women's team. Yeah. That's right. All right. Last thing, the US women's soccer team right now. It's suing the governing body of American soccer for gender discrimination. They say they want equal pay that the men's team gets is going to be a distraction during the turn of it. You know, I think you could think of it that way. But the best thing that the women can do is to win prove to US soccer that they're the best in the world. Again. That they bring in the money again, and that they are one of the most powerful forces in soccer in the world. That's takeaway producer, Isabel angel with WNYC reporter, Jim O'Grady the women's World Cup starts June. Seventh in Paris.

"My family is Kenyon at first we started with a traditional Turkey and gravy. And and then over time realize I've known as the Turkey, like we're just wasting all of this Turkey, and you know, Africans. We hate wasting food and for my parents to just throw away food. You'd know that is a big deal at this guts to go like we just got to keep it true to ourselves. And so our dishes are this thing called potty, which is a fried brand that can be served with a variety of students just more attentive to us. And so we're just more excited to be gathered around the table. The plates are clean. So every year. My dad makes these sweet potatoes that his dad made for thanksgiving super whipped fluffy sweet potatoes, usually with roasted pecans chopped up, really fine. A lot of bourbon like more than maybe safer child to eat. So every single year. My dad calls his dad on thanksgiving to get the recipe for these potatoes. Even though he's been doing it my whole life, but it's kind of a nice tradition between father and son. My grandmother would make chitlins which are hog guts, the not particularly tasty. But I do eat them out of obligation. Sorry grandmother. My wife is Filipina. And every time we go to thanksgiving at her family's. They seem to cook a Turkey in the middle. That's purely decorative that nobody touches and then alongside that will lead the kidney Lau, and he. At the and the fresh Olympia that everybody really wants to enjoy I hate Turkey. And so each year, my mom would cook a soup? So I can put Turkey pieces in there and have Turkey noodle soup to alleviate that. Thanks that was takeaway staff.
