"This is morning edition from NPR news I'm Leila folded and I'm Rachel Martin good morning The threat that Republicans will take over the House of Representatives hovers over the progressive movement of the Democratic Party There's also a new wave of candidates fighting for congressional seats in the November midterms Two progressive lawmakers in the house Democrats Jamie Raskin and ro Khanna are working on new strategies They believe will rack up new victories for the party's liberal wing We need to defend American constitutional democracy with everything we've got at this point And that calls upon us to be as ambitious as we can be in terms of reaching out to people all over America They say this includes coalition building sharing a more optimistic message and less preaching and pure congressional reporter Claudia grisales sat down with Raskin and Connor and she joins us now Good morning Claudia Good morning Rachel How are our progressive Democrats outlining the stakes in this election Democrats are deeply worried about this threat in November And this is part of how this conversation began for Raskin and Khanna kind of warned if the GOP does indeed take over President Biden will be impeached certain Democrats will be forced off committees but he's trying to stay hopeful that they can defy political projections He says it will be critical to remind Americans that Democrats pass the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan into law along with the nearly $2 trillion pandemic relief Bill last year So these two lawmakers think they have a plan to help Democrats in particular progressives They both entered Congress in the same year 2017 from opposite sides of the country though Raskin from Maryland Connor from California How did they become the leads on this They said that there is a new urgency and they saw in each other partners to address it to grow Democrats reach Connor said their brainstorming sessions started after a phone call from President Biden into a closed door congressional progressive caucus meeting last October We're asking me to poignant remark to the president I don't know if Jamie remembers this but he got up and he said yes we're all progressives but we're also Democrats in most importantly we have to recognize that the challenge against us is the return of authoritarianism And then those are the stakes Connor is seated next to Raskin the dew have met up this afternoon in Raskin's office in the house rayburn building to lay out their new mission to shake up discussions for the progressive caucus and Democrats Khanna of California is a Silicon Valley progressive while Raskin of Maryland a constitutional scholar Both have tired of purity politics that have overtaken Democrats message In each other they see coalition builders and pragmatists who can work to reorient how their wing of the party reaches voters and expands that reach along the way You know I hear from Republicans frequently in my district who say they can't take it anymore and they want to become Democrats but they want to make sure that there's a place for them in our party And I assure them that there is Raskin and Khanna argue that former president Trump was able to encroach on what was traditionally Democrats turf that is Middle America by speaking their language Still voters have issues with both parties during a recent visit to Pennsylvania Connor learned about a focus group that characterized Republicans as quote crazy and Democrats as preachy Khanna and Raskin say that preachy tone has got to go for example when talking about sweeping proposals for progressives such as Medicare for All Here's Khanna Preachy is just going to be and say well if you're not for Medicare for All then you must be evil and you must want people to die and you must be wrong right As opposed to saying here is why Khanna says Democrats can make the case for Medicare for All for voters Start a dialog and listen to their concerns and he says progressives face a constant challenge along the way asking the right questions How do we get people on board with it And how do we make sure that if we have to compromise on something that we get something done My view is we should be firm in our ideals but then also pragmatic about what it's going to take to move the ball forward Raskin who is also a member of the House panel investigating the January 6th attack argues the right wing is trying to demolish faith in democracy He says it's time for progressives and Democrats to better defend against Republican attacks I call myself a liberal because I think that liberty has got to be a central value What we're doing But these days I love to call myself a conservative too because I want to conserve the constitution the Bill of Rights the land the air the water the climate system the Voting Rights Act the Civil Rights Act the national labor relations act social security Medicare Medicaid everything that our Friends across the house seem to want to be tearing down is everything that we want to conserve Khanna says there's pockets of America that have been left behind that Democrats are not reaching today And so we have a skepticism out there for a large part of the country that has fallen behind that's lost jobs And when I or Jamie or someone's up on TV saying here's what's going to happen There's a skepticism whether those communities whether people feel like they're going to benefit Raskin says Democrats need to restore the idea that it's the.

"jamie raskin" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Capehart, and welcome to capehart. On January 6th, 2021, supporters have then president Donald Trump stormed the U.S. capitol as Congress was going about its constitutional duty to certify the election of Joe Biden as the next president. Among the members of Congress trapped in the House chamber that awful day, was congressman Jamie Raskin, Democrat from Maryland. 6 days earlier, his beloved son Tommy died by suicide, the day before the insurrection, Raskin laid his son to rest. He recounts those two horrific events in his moving new book, unthinkable. Trauma, truth, and the trials of American democracy. In this conversation, first recorded on January 5th for Washington Post live, Raskin talks about Tommy, the insurrection, how they plan to thwart Trump's attempts to steal the election and whether he thinks Trump committed a crime on January 6th, 2021. So I have no doubt as one of the impeachment managers and as someone who voted successfully to impeach Donald Trump, that he committed a constitutional crime when he incited violent insurrection against the union. Raskin is also a member of the January 6th select committee, so you're not going to want to miss what he has to say about the potential for subpoenas for sitting members of Congress, and whether he has any qualms about serving one to the former president. Welcome congressman. Thank you for having me, Jonathan. I'm delighted to be with you. So congressman, it's been a year since you and your wife, Sarah bloom, lost your son Tommy. How are the two of you and your two daughters doing? Well, it's a day to today struggle to recover some sense of equanimity in our lives. But we're not drowning in agony and brief so much that we can't talk about Tommy anymore. We are able to talk about him without crying, which is an important step forward. And we miss him sharply and intensely every single day. But we have a big family with lots of cousins and uncles and aunts and we have tons of Friends and a great community and I've got the greatest constituents in the world. So we're surrounded by a lot of love, but thank you for asking Jonathan. You know, part one of your book is all about Tommy. Your love for him is as palpable as your heartbreak over his death. And you write about his suicide with aching honesty. Why was it important for you to do that? Well, it's the story of his life and I didn't want his whole life to be defined by it, but it was a part of it. It was the very end of it. And if there's any way that it could help anybody else, then that would be all of the good. Tommy was his little sister tabitha put it above all utilitarian. He wanted to increase the maximum good for the maximum number of people and animals all sentient beings. And so if this helps one person, and we think it's already helped some people because we've been hearing from them, then it's all the good that we've been public about it and we've been honest about it and I don't think Tommy would have it any other way. From reading the book and I'm not quite done, I'm almost there. But the big chunk that I've read already, it's clear Tommy was your best friend, your north star on a lot of things, particularly on doing what's right, wasn't he? Well, I describe him as my greatest student and also my greatest teacher eventually because the pupil certainly surpassed the teacher in so many ways. I mean, Tommy was a moral and political and legal philosopher. And he had an extraordinary precociousness of understanding. I remember we have a close friend who actually lived in our basement apartment, and now in Nathan, who's now a federal judge. And Ali was clerking for justice Stevens and she took Tommy down to justice Stevens chambers to meet him and they were on the way down and Tommy was just 6 or 7 years old. And she started talking about how much she loved justice Stevens and what a great justice he was and Tommy said, yeah, but what did you think about his dissenting opinion in Texas versus Johnson? Because Tommy said, even justice Scalia got that right that you can't put someone in jail for flying desecration, which is just a thought crime. And then I said, well, I think justice Stevens said that allowing someone to desecrate a flag is like allowing someone to desecrate the Lincoln Memorial and then Tommy said back to her as Ali reported to us, well, we only have one Lincoln Memorial, but we all have our own flag. So people can do with their flags, but they want. So he was really brilliant, but what was most exceptional about him was his heart. He just had a perfect heart and he felt the pain and the suffering of the entire world and of course of the animal kingdom too. He was a zealous vegan, but he was not a guilt tripping politically correct vegan. He was just someone who said, we can live without slaughtering animals for protein, especially in the age of impossible burgers. And beyond sausage. And he converted more people to not eating meat, including people in our family than anybody I've ever met. Including you, as I learned in the book, Tommy's funeral was on January 5th. Actually, a year ago today. And the power of his life and what he believed in is what helped guide you through a big assignment you had a year ago tomorrow when Tommy took his life. You were putting the final touches on your strategy and what you were going to say during the proceedings to count the electoral votes and the expected objections on January 6th. And you write on page a 101 12. By the time January 6th arrived, we had been preparing for the counting of the electors for months, our preparations had started as far back as May 2020. You were ready for everything from the bullying of bullying of state election officials to the possibility of Pence throwing the election into the House of Representatives. But you write, we had prepared for everything. Everything that is, except everything that was actually about to happen. You addressed the House floor where you could a president Abraham Lincoln,.

50- Deplatforming and Section 230
"You know there's a lot of things going on in the world but because trump is not an office. I actually don't have a good idea of what we're gonna talk about today so. Please tell me what we're gonna talk about well. We are actually an attack a bit more about trump because seems to linger here. But i thought you when i would talk about that. Subject of d platforming. Oh okay. that's interesting all right. So on tuesday february ninth. Trump's second impeachment trial began the senate. I decided fifty six to forty four. Vote that a former president can in fact stand trial for impeachment even after having left office and that trial move very quickly house. Impeach managers who serve as the prosecution team showed us some dramatic images and videos of what happened on january six when trump supporters attacked the capital and delayed congress's certification of the election. Remember there was just one single charge or article of impeachment against trump and that was for inciting insurrection. Representative jamie raskin was the lead manager and in his closing argument. He said it's now clear beyond doubt that trump supported the actions of the mob. And so he must be convicted. It's that simple. He was not. The trial ended on saturday february thirteenth now. A majority of the senate did vote to convict trump including seven republican senators. But the fifty seven to forty three vote. Fell short of what the constitution requires. And that's a two-thirds majority are fifty seven. The nays are forty. Three two thirds of the senators president not having guilty. The senate judges responded donald. John trump former president united states is not guilty as charged the article peach birth now trump was acquitted of that single charge of inciting the capital attack on january six and because of the acquit all. The senate never held a vote on disqualifying trump from office. So he's free to run for president in two thousand twenty four trump's the first president to be impeached twice and the first to be tried after leaving office and for that he makes history. But i'd like us to return to the riot at the capitol just one more time for a different perspective to look at the link between what happened in washington and what happened online. Theoretically come ready. let's do it so remember that. Many of the writers came directly from president. Trump's save america rally that began that morning on the ellipse. That's the park near the white house. And trump had addressed the crowd with some fiery language but it was elsewhere that really mattered for weeks and really for months trump had been on social media especially on twitter and facebook with false claims that there had been election fraud and that he not biden had won the election. And if you look back now you can see pretty. Clearly how much. Social media was tangled up in the events of january sixth so first barriers around the capital were breached by his supporters around one o'clock that day in about an hour later riders broke into the building and some of them started scaling.
Inside Trump’s historic second impeachment

Donald john trump former president. United states is not guilty as charged. The article is hereby acquitted. The challenge we saw in that senate today was a cowardly group of republicans. Have no power to convict them. Disqualify a former officeholder who is now a private citizen and another sham impeachment down the drain. This was about choosing country over. Donald trump and forty three republican members chose trump a defining moment in american politics. The president of the united states impeached and acquitted for a second time. It's not just donald trump on trial. And it's this entire era of our history. It's a reckoning of. How did we get here. Who have we become. How did this happen the entire saga examined in a new. Abc news documentary for trump the reckoning it all happened here at the heart of our democracy that magnificent capitol building all within about a month. You had insurrection yet. People's storming the capital weeks after that the inauguration and then the impeachment trial is a moment of truth for america. You have the house. Democrats who are the prosecutors led by jamie raskin and his team. Our case is based on cold hard facts. He violated oath of office in the greatest breach of a presidential of in us history. The democrats are trying to make the case that everything that happened on january. Sixth is because of one man and that's donald trump. Let's start with the big lie that the election was stolen. He continued to spread the big lie. Agila way we can lose in. My opinion is massive fraud on january six. We know who lit the fuse. Donald trump told these insurrectionist to come to the capital. We fight we fight like hell and if you don't fight like hell you're not going to have a country anymore. With president trump wanted that day he simply wanted a peaceful and honest airing of the question of whether there were election irregularities in six battleground states. i know that everyone here will soon be marci over to the capitol building to peacefully and patriotically. Make your voices heard at his signal after this. We're going to walk down. And i'll be there with you. He struck a match. We're going to walk down to the capital and he aimed straight at disbelief tape. We saw the house. Managers played this thirteen minute long. Video public has not seen that the senators themselves have not seen. We know those hallways we recognize those corners. It's deeply upsetting. It is anxiety provoking. It is frightening. That awful day could have been so much worse. Multiple members of our government had near run ins with the mob. Senator mitt romney senate majority leader chuck schumer and vice president. Mike pence we saw for the first time. Security footage of mike pence being hustled out of the chamber and his family by thought of vice president. Cheney on nine eleven Being taken to the bunker under the white house to twenty four pm twelve minutes after pence's taken out of the chamber. Donald trump tweets and attack against his own vice president. He tweeted quote. Mike pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution he further incites the mob against his own vice president.

"Managers go first. Jamie Raskin, editor answering questions from Marco Rubio. I don't know how many times I can say it. The jurisdictional issue is over. It's gone, The Senate settled it. The Senate entertain jurisdiction exactly the way it has done since the very beginning of the republic in the blood case in the Belknap case. You remember? Uh, both of them former officials on din this case we have Ah, president who committed his crimes against the Republic while he was in office. He was impeached by the House of Representatives while he was in office. So, um, you know, the hypothetical suggested by the gentleman from Florida has no bearing on this case, because I don't think you're talking about an official who was impeached while they were in office for conduct that they committed while they were in office. The counsel for the former president has 2.5 minutes. You could I have the question read again to make sure I have it right. They can answer it directly. Voting to convict the former president would create a new precedent that a former official can be convicted and disqualified by the Senate. Therefore is it not true that under this new president of Future House Facing partisan pressure to lock her up, could impeach a former secretary of state and a future Senate before to put her on trial and potentially disqualified. Of any future office. If you see it their way, yes. If you do this the way they want it done. That could happen, Tonto. The example there, a former secretary of state But it could happen a lot of people. And that's not the way this is supposed to work and not only could have happened a lot of people and become much more regular, too. Um, but I want to address that. Um And I want you to be clear on this. Mr Raskin can't tell you on what grounds you acquit. If you believe even though there was a vote that there's jurisdiction If you believe jurisdictions unconstitutional, you can still believe that If you believe that the house did not give appropriate due process in this That can be your reason to acquit. If you don't think they met their burden, improving incitement that these words incited the violence you can acquit Mr Raskin doesn't get to give you under what grounds? You can acquit. And so you have to look at What they've put on In its totality. And come to your own understanding as to whether you think they've met their burden to impeach.

Abraham Lincoln knew that when he spoke from the battlefield Involved the Government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish from the earth. Scott. No, I think that Zahran, that's something. And perhaps Nina Totenberg would love to hear what you think about. This is well, this is something I've been thinking a lot about the last four months. As we have seen, the president used the power of his office to try to overturn the will on the outcome of a free and fair election. And he didn't succeed. But the United States Capitol was attacked and the counting of the electoral votes was almost halted. Which is something that didn't even happen. You know, during the civil war when a presidential election caused half the country to leave the country, Nina, I'm wondering what you make of this argument. Certainly, it seemed like Raskin was trying to elevate the final part of the Democrats argument in Try toe. Put it on a higher plane and make senators think about history. But But how do you think that ties into the case that they were trying to make? I think it's a perfectly good both rhetorical point and illegal point. If this isn't an impeachable offense, what is and after all, because Donald Trump was a an inveterate tweeter. Both his tweets and his lack of tweets before and leading up to this and on the day of the of the riot. Are powerful evidence against him in a lot of ways, and so are is the one thing that, he said in a scripted camera performance. Where he sort of tried to thread the needle because he said, Go in peace, but we love you. You know you're this day is you remember forever and you know he's trying to thread the needle there, but he never condemns. The violence at the Capitol outright. He never tells people go home in a timely fashion. This isn't the right way to do it. Do this, And I suspect that You know, we none of us know what history is gonna Hold for this country. I would say that this is probably the most perilous time, perhaps since the Civil War, But if we return to a better time and we resume Government the way we used to know it. I suspect that History will not look favorably on. What happens in this impeachment that It will view Some of this is as cowardice. So right Ryan Lucas, let's Let's zoom ar lens out from the broad lens of history to the narrow lens of tomorrow as we as we look forward to President Trump, former President Trump's defense Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager. Repeatedly made this argument as he wrapped up their presentations, saying tomorrow you're probably going to hear from President Trump's defense team that we shouldn't be holding this trial that the Senate should not be holding a trial on a former president. The Senate has already debated this issue and voted on it and decided to proceed with the trial. And therefore this is a totally irrelevant argument. Do you think that means that we will not hear this point it all from from Trump's defense tomorrow, or is this something that you expect? They will nevertheless spend a lot of time talking about I don't know how much time they will spend talking about it. But I certainly expect that we will hear about it tomorrow at more than one at more than one time. It may not be the center. Of what they present, but it's an important aspect of their defense. And the reason is It gives Republican senators away to not have to deal with the actual substance of the allegations. The facts of the presentations that we saw over the past two days, the videos of the violence, the insurrectionists, beating police officers, lawmakers fleeing from the gallery of the House and the Senate. Gunshots just feet from the house floor they can set all of that aside. It gives them an out to then say, well. Ultimately this shouldn't have been happening and therefore it's unconstitutional. And we don't have to deal with that. That is the important out for them, which is, I think why we heard so much about it in the brief that we saw before this trial from Trump's legal team..

Mitchell Miller, who is live on Capitol Hill, Mitch well a little bit more now about those six Republicans who cross party lines. One of them was Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. He had not supported the vote earlier that took place a few weeks ago in connection with that constitutionality issue interesting. He was very candid with reporters after the First day of the trial and basically said that he thought that the House managers on the Democratic side did a better job than the president's lawyers. As you heard there, there is some concern from former president Trump about the performance of his lawyer. Specifically, they have singled out Bruce Castor, who gave the first presentation during the trial. All the other Republican Senators, by the way, voted for going ahead with the constitutional question and a previous vote. So no surprise there. What else stands out to you about the first day of the trial, Mitch? Well, first of all, there was the video that the Democrats put out which was widely anticipated very well put together and really mashes up all of those horrible moments that happen on January 6. There were, of course, a lot of high level arguments related to constitutionality, but I think that an emotional level. There was a moment with a Maryland congressman Jamie Raskin, who recounted the deadly violence that day how he was separated from his daughter and son in law during the mob's attack. They had gone to the capital with him in support, with the Raskin families still dealing with the recent death of Jamie Raskin. Son Tommy, he says after he was safely reunited with his daughter. He had this conversation. I told her how sorry I was. I promised her that it would not be like this again. The next time she came back to the capital with me, and you know what she said. She said Dad I don't want to come back to the capital. One of the really emotional moments today during the trial is that very personal moment for Jamie Raskin was recounted. The trial will resume tomorrow at noon. And that is when the opening arguments will take place, Mitch one other question before you go the president's attorney, David show and talked about Democrats. He used the word Agree, tearing the country apart, choosing partisanship over country, you know, politically weaponizing the Constitution these air similar arguments that the Democrats make. I found that fascinating. Yeah, What's really interesting is that there are a lot of parallels and those arguments that were made with the first impeachment trial that it was politically inspired that a lot of Republicans say this is just an effort. As you said to weaponize. The impeachment process that defense attorneys also played their own video, a much shorter video, which it showed over and over again, many of the Democratic lawmakers calling for impeachment fairly early in the president's term. So ah lot of similar arguments there again, though. What was really interesting I think after today's first day of the trial is that There was a lot of concern.
