"81 degrees at 5 35. I'm Jeff Pooja. The House Select Committee investigating the January six capital riot held its first hearing today, and there were many emotional moments. For example, representative Adam Kinzinger. Republican of Illinois. You guys made like individually feel a little broken. You guys all talk about the effects you have to deal with. And you know you talk about the impact of that day. Did you guys wine? You guys help he was talking to several Capitol police officers who were there to testify. Joining us now is a B C's Andy Field from Washington, D. C. And you don't see that kind of emotion every day in a congressional hearing. You don't see a hearing like this ever. I've covered Washington for quite some time. I've never seen anything quite like this. Uh, four officers who deserve gold medals and pay for the rest of their lives and go live in an island somewhere. I mean, these are guys who put their lives on the line of the people who were sitting on that panel. The members of Congress, along with all the other Republicans, who have basically said there's nothing to see here. We don't want to hear about this. This is a partisan witch hunt. Uh, there was nothing partisan about this today. This was a team of people. Two Republicans handpicked by Nancy Pelosi because the Republican Party, apparently through its leader, Kevin McCarthy, wanted to put partisans on there to make this a partisan investigation. Folks like Jim Jordan, who would have gotten up and we know this because he's he doesn't repeatedly saying Well, what about the black lives? Matters? Protesters? Uh, there's no one who thinks that people who rioted who burned down buildings who heard police In any of those protests last summer should not be prosecuted. So this is a red herring that he keeps putting up there. The other thing that's interesting is that almost to a person if you ask anyone on Capitol Hill, Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader in the House, Mitch McConnell, the minority leader in the Senate, did you watch the hearings today? Do you have any reaction? Every single one of them said the same thing. Was too busy in meetings to watch. That is a bit shocking, but it's not every Republican. We talked about representative Adam kissing her as well as representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming. Here's what she had to say in talking with Sergeant Keen, Logan. L. When you think about that and share with us the vivid memory of The cruelty and the violence of the assault that day. Um and then you hear former President Trump. Say, quote it was a loving crowd. There was a lot of love and the crowd. How does that make you feel? It's upsetting is a pathetic excuse for his behavior for something that He himself helped to create. I'm still recovering from those hawks in cases that day that he claimed that so many Writers. Terrorists when a salty knows that day, more emotional testimony, But even beyond that, from the political end of things, it looks like representative the kiss, Singer and Cheney have signed their GOP death warrants. Yes, there are Republicans who are demanding that they be stripped of their committee assignments for I'm not certain why other than they Are upholding their oath of office to get to the truth and protect and defend the constitution as well as protect and defend the institution of Congress. For that. That is a X communicable offense to some Republicans, including their leader in the House, Kevin McCarthy, who has also been saying the same thing. The The weird thing is, you have to have the entire house vote to get them out of those positions there, and the Republicans don't have a majority do that, so the Democrats could just say they get state. In their positions. Also, if indeed they did succeed in removing Cheney and Kinzinger, Nancy Pelosi can just put them right back in there in those positions, so the Republicans don't have a whole lot of power. And that is a B C's Andy Field, speaking with chrome OS Jeff Padula for more on that to come up a little cast available at KOMO News Duck, come on his dot com slash podcast.

"Most dangerous wave yet Como's Jeff Pooja look got the latest from ABC is Mark Rommel Art. What's different about President Elect Biden's plan is supposed to what the Trump administration has been doing Well, there's a couple things we'll see whether or not they actually make much of a difference, but one of the things that you mentioned there was this coordination between the levels of government. So I think one of the things we've seen in this early phase of vaccinations and and some of the criticism here about why it's going slow. Is this, uh, kind of fractured system within the United States? The federal government is working to procure the doses from Visor and Madonna. They pass it off to private companies that ship it out to states. The states then take control of it may ship it where it needs to go or directed where it needs to go. Then it lands at a hospital somewhere, and the hospital has its own plan for what to do so each hospital's different so Had this very fractured plan in terms of the chain of custody and the logistics of getting the vaccine out to people on. There was a lot of criticism that there wasn't a very good last mile plan that wants the boxes of the vaccines. Get off the truck at a hospital. Then what happens So what the what the body in administration is saying it wants to do is have that closer coordination between the federal government and states. In terms of how they distribute these things who they distributed to how many doses they're getting these kinds of things, a closer coordination overseeing that that might rely on states being welcoming of that, because part of the reason the system is fractured the way it is, is this because that's how our government and system works. So what Biden and the administration can do to alter that you know, or how much they can alter that, I think remains a question. So that closer coordination and I think the other big thing that you'll see from the Biden administration that you know, I think the Trump administration has been criticized of is a more unified message and a message of urgency. President Trump had a lot of credit to be given for operation Warp speed and the development of vaccines, but at the same time criticism of picking fights with his top scientists and top leaders at CDC and FDA. Saying that the virus will just go away on its own and disappear and not really pushing hard for mask wearing and social distancing bite. And I think you're gonna see a different tone and a sense of urgency there. You mentioned some of the criticisms that the Trump administration has had in rolling out the vaccine. This sounds very similar to what we saw with the P P E and the masks early on in the pandemic, where states where Pitted against each other. Trying to bid on this Has that problem been solved? Are we seeing similar issues here? Well, I think that's exactly what binding is going to try to remedy. But the question again is how much of that can he do? We have a system where there are 50 states with their own autonomy to an extent and their own governments and their own control over their states and jurisdictions. So Think again. It's the framework of our country that something like Covad 19 an effort to do this vaccination system kind of exposes. You know some of the cracks in there and the fault lines in there, you know, just a system of how it works. And so the Trump Administration has been very hands off when it comes to this is in terms of from exactly what you're saying. We had. You know, we had 50 different plans for Early on in the pandemic for masks and 50 different plans for whether or not restaurants can do indoor dining or outdoor dining or no. Do you know no restaurants at all? We had been all these different plans, but when you're trying to as a one nation, coordinate all of this and get on the same page with everybody that presents a huge challenge. Not just logistically but also in the legal framework of our country. And so that's something bite, and I think wants to try to remedy and I think that's what we're seeing here and and in the advanced guidance we have where he wants to have this closer coordination between the federal government and the states. But again, I think that there's still a big question here as to how much Can the president and how much can the federal government actually do here?

Obviously, there's a lot of people that are qualified for this position. Both on the Republican and Democratic side. And one name that I've heard floated about there is bringing back James Mattis. Well, you know, that would be a really good choice. I am. I'm personally a big fan of Jim Mattis. He is extraordinarily impressive, gentlemen. And if he were to come back, I think it would be applauded across the aisle. And of course, that's another commitment that work across the aisle with. I hope that there will be receptive on the On the part of the leadership of the Republican Senate in particular to do that, because I think he's sincere and wanting to do that. So you know what a little story here Jeff Mitch McConnell Was the only Republican senator to show up at Vaux Blind funeral, So he miss McConnell has a relationship. What I understand a pretty good relationship with Joe Biden and he stood up in both funeral, which you know, would will be long remembered by Joe Biden. You mentioned the consent of the Senate because you know the Cabinet positions. The head of most of these agencies need Senate confirmation. And traditionally, the Senate has sort of deferred to the president would graduates of party allowing him to pick his team a supposed to some of the judges where they provided a lot more input? Are we expecting the same thing or this time around? You haven't credentials in the background of these quotes that we saw and heard about today.

That means that the official transition for up power is now underway. Joining me now is Ron Dots, our Eric political strategist and political analyst for Cuomo News and I guess. First off. What does this mean to the average person that the G s a is now allowed to work with the Biden campaign? Well, for the average person, that means that we can begin a transition team begins to plus weeks ago. And that the country and the democracy will be better served as a consequence of this transition of power, everything from national defense to covert to all the things that we're going to be dealing with him his country the next Four years. We have a transition that now in place. Overdue. I might add, but at least it's going to be in place and we could get proceeding in the resource. Is there gonna be there in all of us? All of US Democrats Republicans independents alike. Will be better served as a consequence of this one. The reason that this is happening now is because there was mounting pressure from Republicans and business and community leaders across the United States to make this happen. So now we know that the G s a freeze up funding for the Biden transition team. What does that funding do? What does the transition team spend it on Primary it's on. It's on people and research and resource. So that the people that are being hired can be paid on. But other people will be allowed to Presumably start meeting with other agency head Aziz. Well, not just the money, which is a piece of it, but equally is important, in my opinion is to begin the allowance of the conversation so that when the baton gets passed It doesn't get crumbled. What kind of setback? Was it for the transition team to have the president? Wait now that more than two weeks after the election? Yeah, it really jeopardize the number of things again. National security you saw over the weekend, Maybe 165 or so. Republican National defense experts called on the president to begin the transition because the risk to this country and not having appropriate information at the appropriate time. Make sure that everybody's up to speed. I think that had some impact. And so the national defense question that we all should be concerned about is now going to go forward and that the smoother transition of power, which is one of things has been in my opinion. Homework are barred. Democracy is now back in place. But President Trump hasn't conceded the election so far. But is this in itself sort of a tacit concession that he lost? Well, certainly it is, but I would submit to you that on January 20th When their president will be sworn in, he will still not admit that he has lost So waiting for President Trump to declare that he is that he has conceded to President elect Biden would eyes not gonna happen with my pig and so But Certainly the acknowledgment that there is going to be a new president on January 20th. And it's not gonna be Donald Trump. But a concession for all intensive purposes is completely unnecessary because once the electors air certified, the vote certified and the president is sworn in, it doesn't matter what the previous president believes that correct it over and it has been over for some time. And I think you know there was a number of effort for it becomes really handle. I might you know when Chris Christie, who coaches you during the debates, insist on national television over the weekend that your legal team is a national disgrace? That's kind of an embarrassment for anybody City in the White House. Anyone the main funders of the Republican Party say Well, we're not going to write checks in Georgia for the Senate campaign that's going to get a lot of people's attention, right? So all that it's swirling in what what Donald Trump does this weather is conceited or not, computer acknowledge the presidency at this point is totally and absolutely as you say, irrelevant. That's political analyst Ron Dots are talking with Cuomo's Jeff Po Djula. Your money.

But we're not sure exactly what that we heard any response at this point from Tic Tac's owners in China. Yes, they're not happy about it, and it seems that they're going to challenge the order in some way, or at least express that. I don't think this is necessary.

Because basically, Microsoft is able to buy the US portion of take talk within the next 45 days in the act is going to keep operating in the US people will still be able to use it. Basically gives Microsoft kind of this pretty quick, 45 day countdown clock in a way hasn't the president sort of given an upper hand to Microsoft or even any other company pursuing a deal for tick toxins? Bite dance now kind of knows. It'll really be left with an empty bag in the US in about six weeks. If it can't make a deal. That's true. They're really putting pressure on Bly dance to somehow divest these operations. The issue is that tick took is really valuable. And there's really only a handful of companies that would be both interested and able to buy them at this point, make herself is one of them. That 45 days is really pretty fast for a deal of this size. Has there been interest from any other company at this point aside from Microsoft and Tic Tac, not that we've heard there were some venture capital companies who were reportedly interested in buying parts of TIC Tac, but they wouldn't have been able to buy the whole thing. And there was some speculation about other tech companies that the only one that's been confirmed is Microsoft. And it doesn't seem as though a deal to break up the company would be in the cards.
