Do you believe that. There's any chance he won't go through. I think it's going to go through. It's enormously popular in the country. It's polling i think around seventy seven seventy eight percent You know even when you put for the gop's argument that this is a quote partisan plan or a democrat plan. It still stays up around seventy one or seventy two percent so they're not even really peeling off any republicans with that argument and when they call it a partisan plan all. They're really saying they're not supporting it in. Dc but in fact millions and millions of republicans around the country are supporting in along with democrats and independence. Everybody understands what wreckage has been visited on the country by covid nineteen with now the loss of more than five hundred and twenty five thousand people and there was no plan over the last four years. There was just nothing there. And so this finally gives us a real plan to crush the disease to to dramatically accelerate vaccination. So we can get this done by this summer. So we're ready to take the kids back to school In the fall everywhere safely and there's so many other problems that have been caused by that we need to address in the housing market in terms of rental assistance in terms of hungry. People you know. Diana was Last weekend in a place where we were handing out groceries to people you know there's hundreds and hundreds of cars lining up waiting for hours to get a bag of groceries. Are people are still wounded by this nightmare. I'm glad that we're stepping up to pass this one point. Nine billion dollar rescue plan that will also double as a stimulus to really get the economy moving in a strong direction. What about the split between name progressive conservatives in the house on this bill well actually. It's not so much on this bill. Because i because i do think everybody's going to support it but they're they're the big tension boiled up the minimum wage. I you know. I think historically there's always been some regional disagreement about the minimum wage to fifteen dollars over a few years. Doesn't doesn't seem it's gonna make you a member of the middle class in the northeast but there's some parts of the country. Where if you could get up to fifteen dollars you know it would go a lot further and you know so there have been certainly the republicans are saying.

"Build your business and have a quality of life and education environment that makes you gotta go with the democrats because the republicans have become the party of chaos. So i think yes for the time being donald trump's going to hang onto supporters but it's a shrinking base and that's why the name of the game over there is voter suppression and what we've seen. As their real agenda now. In twenty twenty one is to get state legislatures to adopt different voter suppression tactics to try to restrict and limit the franchise canton congress. Stop that well. That's a great question. I mean we've got the votes in the house to pass. Hr one which you know is comprehensive voting rights defense. Act i mean it's it's about you know automatic voter registration. It's about overthrowing gerrymandering in installing instead independent nonpartisan redistricting commissions in every state And of course we want to pass the john lewis voting rights act so that we can restore what the supreme court took away from us in the shelby county vs holder case but the question will become the senate even if we got all fifty democratic votes in the senate which i think we can. And then we've got a vice-president years to cast the deciding vote in the tie. The problem is that the filibuster has been the best friend of the anti civil rights forces for a century. Now i mean it was used to try to stop anti lynching legislation. It was used to stop civil rights legislation in the nineteen sixties. It's always been the weapon of those who wanna keep the country living in the past when it comes to the civil rights of formerly disenfranchised groups. So i don't know the senate is going to have to figure out how to deal with that problem. It's a series and president has said he's not in favor of getting rid the fellow buster. How do you go against your own leader. Well you know there are different ways to deal with the problem i mean. Obviously senator dodd. President biden was senator for a long time. And he's got a lot of affection for that and i think you know not being a senator i. I'm not wed to kind of venerated practices like the filibuster. I mean i just try to think of it in social terms. What does it mean. Does it advanced progress or not but look. I think that what the president might be hinting. Is that there are different ways to skin the cat here. I mean you know. One of the things that senator mansion mentioned yesterday was he might not be for totally wiping out the filibuster but he might be for restoring the talking filibuster which means you can't just put kind of pocket veto on a bill saying we'll i would filibuster it now. One senator can shutdown business. You actually have to stay up all night and keep talking and expose yourself to public view and make it transparent. I think that would be a slight improvement. The problem is you. You can also imagine senators using that just as a Almost as a campaign vehicle in device to get attention for what they're doing and further polarize the country so look alternately.

"He is the leader of the gop caucus and he laid out in an a tremendously damning in condemnatory way. All of the president's abominable actions in inciting the violence and Exhorting the mob to to go on to take the capital and so he seemed to have no doubt as a matter of fact about what had happened with the president but then he went back to hang his hat on that jurisdictional hook saying You know he's now a former president. You can't try. And which of course is ridiculous because he was impeached. While he was president for conduct he committed while he was president and article one section three says that the senate is power to try all impeachments and all means all and this was one of the impeachments and it had never been a problem before so look. I thought that that particular lifeboat that he tossed himself was really a reflection of the political power dynamics in the republican party he felt that there was enough consternation in alarm about what trump was doing that he could at least state the truth but the trump still commanded that huge majority of republican senators. Who were afraid of him and cowed by him. Such that Mcconnell had to vote with them and this was the way that he decided to do it now having said that we did get seven republican votes. It was the most. bipartisan impeachment. Vote in the history of the united states in the senate it was a very powerful majority for conviction. Fifty seven forty three even though it wasn't a two thirds majority so he he beat the constitutional spread but i think that we established free in the court of public opinion in the court of history. That trump actually did these things and that's got all kinds of implications for further litigation down the road civil litigation under the ku klux klan. Act criminal prosecutions as well as potential action under section three of the fourteenth amendment which was a statement by the radical republicans in congress ratified and made part of the constitution. That people who swear an oath to the united states and the constitution to preserve protect and defend but then betrayed that oath by joining insurrection against the union forfeit. Their right ever to run for office again so President trump is not even remotely out of the woods. If he's thinking about running for president again in the future so you believe ultimately it will be accountability for the ends direction at the capital. Well yes i think. There's going to be criminal accountability for the for the hundreds of people who participated were being arrested who are being indicted prosecuted of course donald trump abandoned all of those people being not just a traitor to his country and a coward but also a betrayer of his own movement. I mean if he were really You know the mussalini of our times. The leader of a proud right wing nationalist populist movement. He would have been there testifying for his people but he was at home hiding under his bed. Despite the fact that. I sent him a letter the week before telling him he could come and testify. We would give him the the stage in the podium. That he's always wanted never added more talkative president. Why wouldn't he come and tell us that he was proud of what he had done of urging people to come and fight like hell and his wild protests against congress and against the counting of the electoral college votes. He abandoned those people. He he ditched. But i think he will get his come up under our constitutional system and ultimately this is a resilient democracy with people who are proud to be part of a constitutional democracy and people understand the donald.

"You know we put that on the table right at the front. I said. let's deal with this beginning as a threshold jurisdictional issue if there's no jurisdiction for the senate to conduct the trial then let's not waste. Everyone's time if you don't want to see the evidence if you don't know what happened in the senate rejected that and so at that point it should have been off the table like in a criminal prosecution. If somebody says was seized unconstitutionally under the fourth amendment should be suppressed and the court says no. There was nothing wrong with the seizure of the evidence. Then you forget about that weight and you just go to the facts of the case and that was white. Mcconnell refused to do so. I guess me an answer your question we can say you know. There's some people who appear to decided that there was no way that they were going to decide the case on the merits. But you know. I spent many sleepless nights thinking about other things that i might have done. I mean one of the things that i contemplated doing that. I wish i had done was to confront the issue of partisanship right up front by moving to have the senators not be seated according to political party with all of the republicans over to our left and all the democrats right. It should have been mixed up like in a regular jury. Because i think that did encourage more of that. Partisan group think what about the idea of calling witnesses at the end of the evidence which is the moment when according to senate rules. You're allowed to motion for witnesses. We did move for witnesses. Because there was the testimony Via jaime herrera butler a new congresswoman from washington state about her conversations with minority leader mccarthy and he reported to her that when he called donald trump to say we've been overrun. Were being besieged. Trump originally said it's antifa to which mccarthy answered no. It's not antifa mr president. Your people to which the president super responded something to the effect of well. They obviously just care more about the election.

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.

"More podcast david ramnik talks with representatives. Jamie raskin of maryland raskin recently served as the lead impeachment manager and the second impeachment trial of donald trump january. Sixth the day when mobs descended on capitol building in washington will live very long in the memories of millions of americans. For jamie raskin that is especially the case raskin. A democrat representing maryland's eighth congressional district just a week earlier. He had tragically lost his son. Tommy law student who suffered from depression and took his life on new year's eve. The raskin family laid tommy to rest on the fifth and on the six jamie raskin went to the capital of his daughters and a son in law went with him for moral support because raskin had a crucial job to do. He was defending the certification of the electoral college and the election of joe biden. That's the process. The donald trump and his supporters just could not abide and they wanted to stop it by any means necessary when the mob reach the building threatening violence on lawmakers raskin and his family were all in danger along with so many others when the house impeach. Donald trump for his role in inciting insurrection. Jamie raskin was the lead manager prosecuting. The case trial is personal. Indeed for every senator remember the health every manager all of our staff. The capitol police the washington dc metropolitan police the national guard maintenance and custodial cruise the print journalists and tv people who are here and all of our families and friends. I hope this trial reminds america. How personal democracy is and how personal is the loss of democracy to. I reached jamie raskin last week as he was traveling with. His family now congressman this moment. Is i think the first moment you've had to breathe since so much and i have to ask you. How do you begin to process all this. Well probably spend the rest of my life. China process the last couple of months because some very profound in terrible things have happened to our family But we've also been the beneficiary of a lot of a lot of solidarity. And i got to participate in an extraordinary efforts to defend american constitutional democracy against the tyranny of donald trump and the violence insurrection. That he unleashed against us. Do you feel that you succeeded. Well Yeah i do we. We of course impeached him in the house of representatives so he is a now choice to impeach president for his crimes against the union his high crimes against the union and we Received fifty seven votes in the senate in the most bipartisan Presidential impeachment conviction. Vote in the history of the united states. That was fifty seven to forty three. We won Seven republicans over as well as all the democrats but the reason. I considered a success because we You refute convicted. The president in the court of public opinion. We irrefutably convicted him in the court of history and he will increasingly become an absolute pariah. my mistake was to think that we were gonna win this thing one hundred zero. I always thought it was more likely than we would win. One hundred zero than sixty seven to thirty three when people said to me. You know where you can get seventeen republican votes. I said i'm not going for seventeen republican votes. We're going for one hundred. We want the evidence to be so overwhelming and unrefuted irrefutable. That everybody says there's nothing else that can be done But we underestimated the the moral and political cowardice of a lotta people in the republican party. Who are just accepting the autocratic bullying of donald trump. It's a pretty shocking thing congressman. You and your family suffered a loss that's unspeakable unimaginable. And i and everyone else colleagues. And i'm sure listeners. Send their deepest condolences. I don't know how you summon the will to do what you did. How did you manage to get out of bed. But move forward and appear on the public stage And summoned the intelligence. And all. it's necessary to perform as you did. I can use that word in the well of the senate and make your case and organize the prosecution. How did you do it. How did you manage. Well you've got a read.

Impeachment manager Jamie Raskin told NBC's Meet the press. He has no regrets.

Trump's Senate impeachment trial moves to opening arguments

"Trump committed a massive crime against our Constitution and our people and the worst violation of the presidential oath of office in the history of the United States of America. That is lead impeachment manager Jamie Raskin of Maryland today. He and his fellow House members presented opening arguments in Day two of former President Trump's impeachment trial in the U. S. Senate. Call the former president on insider in chief who reveled in the chaos of his supporters of the capital on January 6th joining us now to talk about the day or NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis and NPR's senior political editor and correspondent. Domenico Montanaro. Could have you both. Here. Thanks. Thanks. Claudia, you were actually in the Senate chamber today, where the 100 senators as jury members sit silently listening to the House. Impeachment managers make their case describe the mood for us. It was clear much of the time that I was in the chamber that the members were very engaged. For example, they were watching lead manager Jamie Raskin, in his presentation very intently reminded me of the chamber yesterday when Raskin was giving his emotional remarks. About the day he and his family experienced here. During the insurrection. I was seated on the Republican side of the chamber. Republicans were intently watching him and the other managers and that includes those who say they won't be voting to convict Trump like Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Republican member of the Senate. Also, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell was also watching. Very closely even watch some of these videos of the president's past statements on a television screen on the chamber floor. Many members were taking notes, and this includes those who have voted for the constitutionality of the trial, among them, Ben Sasse of Nebraska had a pile of no cards on his desk. Domenico. The Democrats were making the arguments today. I know you've been watching since the beginning of these proceedings yesterday what stood out to you compared to yesterday's testimony. Well, only later in the day here, have we gotten some of the personal passion and emotion that we had yesterday about the violence on January? 6th? Mostly today, Democrats had been methodically mounting, pretty dispassionate case to show Trump is the reason for why all of this happened. They claim that it's not just isolated to January 6th and tick through numerous things for months and months. That this was months and months in the making that Trump laid the groundwork before the election and drove it home after after that election and was aware of what was being planned. Um, it kind of really makes me wonder how and what the trump lawyers they're going to say in rebuttal, aside from saying that Democrats are being selective and use the word on that they didn't say that he used the word peaceful. In his speech on January 6th. Claudia tell us more about how the Democrats are actually building their case here. Yes, they're focused on showing the timeline of how Trump built a crowd of people who distrusted the election and believed they were following his orders. Jonah Goose, one of the managers of he's, a House member of Colorado. He also talked about this. Let's take a listen. Senators is clearly was not just one speech. Didn't just happen. It was part of a carefully planned months long effort. With very specific instruction. Show up on January 6th. Get your people to fight the certification. So from manager to manager they're building this case each piece building on the next the beginning, middle and end and today mark the beginning of that story. He made a point of connecting directly to their share terror that day, and this was especially apparent is, Domenico noted in the late afternoon when managers have shared dramatic sounds. And footage video footage from the day of the insurrection that the public has not seen before. This was sounds from police scanners of officers pleading for assistance. Pleading for their lives. It's seen as they were being assaulted by the mob. There's video footage from Capitol security cameras showing the mob breaking into the capital and another stunning moment where we see Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, walking outside of the chamber, running into an officer being told they need to clear out quickly and he is running. Behind this officer to escape the mob. Wow well yesterday, Trump's lawyers dismissed the House managers arguments, calling Democrats accusing Democrats of trying to cancel the former president by stifling his freedom of speech. Medical. What did the impeachment managers say about that claim right? Trump's lawyers yesterday said his speech was protected by the First Amendment. But Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, who we heard from earlier You know, he's a constitutional law professor, And he argued that the quote factual premise and the legal underpinnings of that claim are all wrong, He said. Incitement to violence is not protected speech, and here's how he put it with a familiar phrase. It's more like a case where the town fire chief Who's paid to put out fires sends a mob not to yell fire in a crowded theater, but to actually set the theater on fire. And who then, when the fire alarms go off in the calls, start flooding into the fire department asking for help does nothing but sit back, encourage the mob to continue its rampage and watch the fire spread on TV. Clea and delight. You know,

"Jamie Raskin said the evidence is clear case is based on cold. Hard facts. CBS is Stacey Lynn says the vote cross party lines. Next GOP senators joined the Democrats voting. It was constitutional. So now we move on to the meat of the trial on Wednesday, there will be presentations from both sides. They each get up to 16 hours to lay out their case. We expect to hear the House managers say Trump's words incited the riot and he needs to be held accountable. Former President Trump's legal team will say the people who breached the capital did so on their own accord. Sources say. Mr Trump is not happy with his attorneys more from CBS is Major Garrett. Former president Trump agrees based on a couple of sources angry about what he saw. CBS News Special Report. I'm Lisa Matteo. Let's turn it over to w. T. O. P S. 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. I think on the Republican side that the defense for the president was not as strong as it should have been. All right, Mitch. Thanks. You bet. W t o p.

Senate Votes to Move Ahead With Impeachment Trial

"The senate voted fifty six to forty four today to proceed with the historic second impeachment trial of former president. Donald trump the first day of the senate. Trial was focused on whether it was constitutional. Try a former president with both sides laying out their arguments. Democrats kicked off their time by showing a harrowing video of the capital riot that appeared to chronicle events of january six from trump's speech through the siege and trump's video message to riders calling on them to go home while still claiming. The election was fraudulent. Lead impeachment manager democratic congressman. Jamie raskin of maryland pushed back against the idea. That trump can't be convicted because the event took place right before he left office. This cannot be the future of america. We cannot have president's inciting and mobilizing mob violence against our government and our institutions because they refuse to accept the will of the people under the constitution of the united states much less. Can we create a new january exception. Our precious beloved constitution that prior generations have died for and fought for so the corrupt presidents have several weeks to get away with whatever it is they wanted to. History does not support a january exception in any way. So why would we invent one for the future. Our politics reporter allies collins so the democrats came in very prepared of course all of the impeachment managers were there on january six. They experienced it. They had a video with very graphic footage of what happened. And i think even afterwards on the break some senators were saying you know senators. Who don't believe that it's constitutional to have the trial where saying that. That democratic impeachment managers did a very good job. And so i think when trump's lawyers took over they had to rejig a little bit and bruce castor was his first lawyer who spoke. Who gave this sort of mishmash of ideas for the first thirty minutes touching on a whole bunch of things and was very complimentary of listening to the democrats speak before getting to what his argument was which was that he felt democrats. Were afraid to run against former president trump in two thousand twenty four. We are really here because the majority in the house of representatives does not want to face donald trump as a political rival in the future. That's the real reason we're here. That's why they have to get over the jurisdictional hurdle which they can't get over but that's why they had to get over that in order to get to the part of the constitution that allows removal. That was bruce. Castor a former president trump's defense team

"Judge michael ludwig most prominently that it is not constitutional to try a president after he leaves office that the impeachment clause implies that both removal and disqualification go together. And you can't separate them. Well then why would it be spelled out that way. Conviction removal and disqualification are all put in there. The supreme court has never said anything like that. I think judge ludik conceded. That professor tribe had the stronger argument when he refuted immediately after that speculation. But look we've got a. We've got a positive case to rely this to rely on. Which is the bell belknap. Decision from eighteen. Seventy six belknap was corrupt. Secretary of war perhaps not as corrupt donald trump but he was pretty corrupt and he actually did do some good things for the country but he was ripping off the government and when the whistle was blown on him and everybody saw exactly what was happening he rushed over to delicious. Grants office in the oval office. To resign any did resign. The fact that he resigned did not stop either one. The house from impeaching him or to the senate from saying that they could in fact conductor trial and they did they exercised jurisdiction over him. So the senate already dealt with this issue a century in africa well congressman. There is no precedent for the actual situation. We will likely find ourselves in which is an ex president. No direct precedent and ex president being on trial in the senate. I imagine that if this were to go to the supreme court the supreme court probably would not want to get involved. But we'll we'll find out. But i have a question for the impeachment nerds. What this senate trial would look like and one question that comes to mind is who would actually preside over it. Because in the past when presidents have been on trial the supreme court chief. Justice has presided chief justice. John roberts just just last year. What do you think would happen this time around with an ex president on trial. Well thank you for that question. Did he look. I scored the general point here. I remember back in high school. There's something called senior skip day and it was usually maybe a week or two before school was over but the idea was basically. It was so late in the day there was nothing they could do to you. And if everybody just blew it off together. There was no discipline. I don't think we can turn coups and insurrections against the us government into a kind of senior skip day for the president. If he gets away with it he gets to become dictator. And if he doesn't we say it was too late in the day to do anything so we will work out all of those questions that you're raising where there's a will. There's a way under the constitution and we owe this to future generations. I don't think the message can be sent to future presidents that if they really don't wanna leave their office give it a try within the next know within a couple of weeks of leaving office and there's nothing that can be done to you so two questions first of all. What can you tell us about what this trial is going to look like a unicol witnesses. Are you gonna show videotapes. What sort of case do expect to put on. Michael a superb reporter. You are expected to ask questions like that. But i i you know. I'm trying to run a magnificent trial team year for perhaps the most important impeachment trial in. Us history and we are knockin a preview any trial tactics or trial strategy other than to say we are not gonna test anybody's patients. This is not going to be you know in a fair that goes on for a long long time. We're gonna try to tell a very cogent story about how this president mobilized all of his resources in his office to undermine into sport into nullify this election. And he as liz cheney said he convoked the mob he assembled the mob he led the match and no one is more responsible than him. None of this would have happened without donald trump and. I think that we will end. Up with tremendous bipartisan convergence. Around that sexual conclusion who will lead irresistibly to a finding of guilty can an ex president be compelled to be present at his own impeachment trial. Again i'm going to defer any questions of trial procedure and evidence. I was gonna say. Can you do it in a day. Is it a week is more than that. Well nobody is. We're talking about a period of time within which this plan developed and executed and was realized and We want people to see every dimension of this plan and we can do it completely on the public record in what has surfaced since this nightmare befell the republic so just in terms of how long i mean. Do you think it's a one day a couple of days or more than that you know. It's up to our friends in the us senate because it's up to us and we'll be in consultation with them and we will explain exactly what our case in chief is all about. They of course wanted to questions and answers. There's opportunity to have some opening statements but nothing could be more important than us getting this right so we can define exactly what took place in. We can secure the republic. We wanna make sure that never happens to the people. The united states again last question if you can't get seventeen. Republicans senators to go along. Inevitably the comeback will be. This is another failed impeachment and donald trump was acquitted. You're running a risk here that that could be the spin. That many people put on this. If you don't secure conviction with all due respect. I disagree completely with what you just said. First of all there's been no failed impeachment. There was a successful impeachment in the house of a year ago. There was a successful impeachment last wednesday. The president has already been impeached by a majority of the house of representatives and that is indicted by the house. These are charging documents that we send over. The trial takes place in the senate. We are not looking for seventeen republic senators. We are looking for one senators to do their job. As honest disinterested impartial jurors not as members of political parties not as politicians but as jurors to hear the facts in the law of this case. And if we do our job correctly we should have. I think we really could have a unanimous verdict that the president of the united states as congresswoman cheney. The elected chair of the house. Republican conference said this president committed the greatest offense against the united states and the republic street. And i think we are going to be able to prove that. But i gotta get back to work right now. Okay okay thank you very much for joining us..

"Her office compelled her to vote to impeach but also because she did the single best job of synthesizing one happened. He summoned the mob. He assembled the mob lit the match by exhorting the mob and inciting the mob. And the there is you know there may have been other people contributed but clearly he was the lead actor in making all of these events happen and you know what if it had succeeded. Does anybody believe that he would have proceeded to try. To put down the insurrection and prosecute the people who brought it or do we think that he actually would have just continued on his merry way to be president of the united states for at least another term. What if the people they were trying to kill or killed but would happen congressman. You said something that. I just want you to elaborate on it in terms of the stakes. You said working to secure the republic. It's a simple declaration. But what well. What did you mean. I mean i was in the house of representatives may be seventy five hundred feet away from the vice president of the united states who was operating as senate president to count the electoral college votes. But everything in. The president's plan was to converge on this moment to stop the counting of electoral college votes in we had a mob of thousands of people inside and outside the building yelling. Hang mike pence they set up a gallows outside at the capitol. They were looking to find pelosi and assassinate or the three people next in the line of succession would have been killed. And you know everybody still wants to believe in american exceptionalism and somehow different. What's different is that. We still have the spirit to fight to defend our democracy which a lot of people have given up but all of the rain extremism and cool like behavior that you see in other parts of the world happened here. It happened here and so we could have lost republic on that day right before our very eyes and to this day. You know we've We are reading about all of the all of the threats being made in right wing media to finish their coup on january seventeenth. Eighteenth nineteenth and twentieth. Like we are in the middle of the democracy still being besieged by these people. And they're talking about doing it at all. The state capitals two so now is the time for all patriots to come to mobilise to defend our country. Everybody's got a chance to act in the spirit. Of abraham lincoln right now in terms of what you say in terms of what. You do congressman. You're a constitutional law professor. And i think it's fair to say a man of the left. Your father was active and very prominent in the anti war movement during the nineteen sixties and seventies and you know the charges against the president incitement to violence and the rhetoric about sedition. This is what's traditionally been used against the left. I've noted on the podcast the other day. I recently watched the the new movie the trial of the chicago seven. They were charged with sedition. They were charged with aiding violence. The supreme court has a very high bar for the charge of incitement to violence. There has to be a direct link between the words used and the actual avalon. Imminent eminence is the test i mean. Are you at all worried. Or how would you respond to those who say that to use these tools that have been used to suppress protests from the left now against president. Trump could set a very dangerous precedent. Well unfortunately i think you're mixing apples and oranges here. The brandenburg standard is the first amendment standard that applies to private citizens in how they operate and incitement even for private citizens is not protected under the first amendment incitement to imminent lawless. Action is not protected speech. But here. we're not even talking about a criminal prosecution in an impeachment. Nobody goes to jail for single day. Is what are the standards of conduct expected of the president of the united states. I mean take a president who doesn't even do what the president did which was to create a course of conduct speech in action leading up to a violent instruction. But just say you had a president who spent every day going around the country saying we need to destroy constitutional government in installed fascism in america. Right well would you consider that impeachable conduct if the president was just going just to add. Just advocating it without actually getting involved with the actress. Who are going to do it. Which is i would. I would think that that would be a pretty strong case for impeachment but in this one no no i totally agree with young there but would you agree that. The incitement charge should not be used in a criminal prosecution against donald trump after. No i wouldn't concede that. Because i think that that even on a criminal prosecution which which this is not there would be a very good case to be made that this was criminal incitement and it survived any. It's irrelevant. It's an irrelevant distraction from what we're doing here. Which is we're talking about. The standards of conduct high crimes and misdemeanors against the republic. Imagine any other president in history from george washington to abraham lincoln to ulysses grant to teddy roosevelt franklin roosevelt to george w bush. Do you think any of them would have been engaged. In this course of conduct that would lead to a direction in the capital. Well what we're saying. This is a high crime and misdemeanor a violent attack against the republican. I just want to ask about is their legal or constitutional relevance to the president's conduct. Not just before this riot but but during and after he comes out he says he loves these people all of that will come out in the trial the and when when will we have a trial. I had no idea when it's going to be set. That is above my pay grade but but it will tell you that. All of the president's actions before the violent insurrection. During the violent insurrection after the violent insurrection are consistent with his consciousness of guilt and his working to incite insurrection against the public in the against the republican against the people. What do you say to those who are very concerned that a trial of donald trump. Which now looks that. It won't take place until after he leaves office on. Wednesday is going to really delay the confirmation of biden appointees getting biden people into key positions in the government and also dealing with really pressing national issues like a raging pandemic. First thing i would say is we should have the resources within the senate and the house and we do have the resources senate house to do all of this and You know the senate of course has been gone for many days by. They obviously made the judgment that they would be able to two pubs and i fully expect that they will and we will adjust their schedule. You know in a in a more semantic way i would say this Go and read the preamble of the constitution. Right it's we the people in order for more perfect union establish justice insure domestic tranquility provides the common defense those three come before promote the general welfare. So we got to promote the general welfare at the same time we're establishing justice ensuring domestic tranquility and providing comments and we can do them all but those values are on the same plane another concern that's been raised by some constitutional scholars former appellate court..
