Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

Trump set to miss required deadline for 2021 refugee quota.
"Trump administration appears to be ignoring a deadline to establish how many refugees will be allowed into the United States next year raising uncertainty about the future of the forty year old resettlement program that has been dwindling under his administration. The Thousand Nine Hundred Eighty Refugee Act requires presidents to issue that determination before October first the start of the fiscal year. With only hours to go on Wednesday, the trump administration had not sheduled consultations with Congress that required before setting the annual figure. There was no immediate comment from the White House, which usually announces the target numbers or the departments of State or Homeland Security which were involved in making the determination. Democratic lawmakers blasted the administration for not meeting its obligation. Trump's violation of the nineteen eighty law will bring our refugee admissions program to a halt leaving thousands stranded abroad with their lives at risk New York representatives Jerry Nadler, who is chairman of the House Judiciary? Committee? Trump froze this year's admissions in March falsely citing a needs to protect American jobs as fall-outs from the corona virus crashed the economy. Advocates fear the government is intentionally delaying its plans for the twenty twenty one fiscal year as a way to eventually eliminate the refugee program. No more refugees can be admitted after Thursday until the president sets the ceiling for the New Year Secretary of State Mike. Pompeo said the administration is committed to the country's history of leading the world in providing a safe place for refugees. But advocates say the government's actions do not show that in addition the State Department announced last week it would no longer provide some statistical information on refugee resettlement sparking more concerns advocates say the trump administration is dismantling a program that has long enjoyed bipartisan support and has been considered a model for protecting the world's most vulnerable people.
"jerry nadler" Discussed on Chapo Trap House
"Before we get into our favorite celebs in my my sort of categorization of them I'd also like to just bring up quickly and just ask you guys did you see New York Congressman Jerry Nadler Shit himself on TV this. is due to. Shit his pants at a press conference Nancy Pelosi and I believe it was for some fucking bullshit bill. They're going to do to make sure that trump doesn't steal the election. How perfect is that these? Fossils shuffle out to tell you. We're going to stand up and fight against the bad orange bad taking over. All excuse. I'd be shuffle off at my shit covered fucking diapers. Alive year old bad with lap surgery at a shit filled diaper and I'm going to save the elections from the Cherry Nazi. stormtroopers the wearing buddy hold over. So just like the way where it was like. He didn't even hesitate. He wasn't even like. Lovely. It because it's like if I leave the stage people are GonNa think either have dementia or there's diarrhea running down my way. He's like, Yeah Okay Myself You. Guys feel like he just walks like that. Anyway. Regardless of if he should himself, you know like because he is he's built like the mayor of Halloween town. He is the Mayor Holiday town. This country is awesome. Eater under the age of. Ninety. Five. I swear to God like Matt You. Exactly. My thoughts and I mean like people have been saying the word Gerontocracy a lot on twitter and Inappropriate One in light of. Ruth, Bader Ginsburg trumping dead and then like I following that there's an article in the Washington Post about like senior Democrats whispering on record or like behind the scenes that Dianne Feinstein should not handle whatever senate. Hearing about judicial nominees comes next because she's eighty seven years old and his gently speaking lost the stepper too and I. Just love the fact whether it's Nadler Pelosi member Pelosi with shoes on TV this week and there were like So are there is there anything off the table in terms of what you'll do to block trump's judicial nominees and she just goes Good Morning. Good Morning. Hello should. At every level for an aglow chief is. Low. I just love it like every level or face like trump is cancelling democracy the it's all real. It's all happening. We have to talk about it but like at every step of the way like every level of power that's supposed to prevent this from happening is controlled by ninety eight year olds who are just like one breath away from keeling over it's Because I look at like my grandparents and. My GRANDPA got I. Think he was ninety two and there's still people in power that age and when my GRANDPA got to that age he went through with medically assisted dying because it's legal up here has like well. Yeah. So I like you know maybe that's something that could happen down there. My grandma is like ninety three and has no idea where she is you know and I feel like you know it's the same for a lot of these people they're going to the wrong I was reading stuff that they're going to the wrong like room. You know they have to be directed to the correct room they're just they don't know what's going on. Jerry no, that's the F thirty five after burner. If at least I mean it'd be one thing if we understood these people to be what they are, which is just front front men and women for a political order that operates at the level of bureaucracy and honestly the level of the fucking market. But no, we have to invest these people with the supernatural power because we have to give politics meaning somehow. So we have to act like Nancy Pelosi this genuinely doddering old bat is also these the supreme empress just like Ruth Bader Ginsburg was she doesn't have to retire she's a girl boss Ono she someone dropped her she shattered a five thousand pieces. It's okay if people were making saddles junior soprano. Served T. Will start not doing the job you're fantasizing them to do. They are literally mentally and physically incapable of doing what you're voting for them to do and what you're expecting them to do..
The Big Tech Hearing Proved Congress Isn't Messing Around
"The purpose of today's hearing is to examine the dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. Roger the covert 19 pandemic. These corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. As American families shift more of their work, shopping and communications online, These Giants stand to profit. Locally owned businesses. Meanwhile, Mom and pop stores on Main Street facing economic price is unlike any in recent history. Rhode Island Democrat David Cellini, opening today's House hearing with the heads of the world's big tech companies. Amazon's Jeff Bezos out of Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google Sunder Pitch I. The foremen faced hours of questions from House lawmakers over whether they've used their superpower status to crowd out competition. And enrich themselves. The House Judiciaries Antitrust committee, which Cellini chairs has been looking into that question for the last year. Joining us to talk about the hearing today is tech expert Tim Woo. He teaches at Columbia Law School and is the author of the book The Curse of Bigness, Anti Trust in the New Gilded Age. Him welcome back to press play. Thanks for having me here. Well, you've argued for a very long time that the's tech giants have gotten too big. What do you think today's hearing accomplished in terms of getting more support to break them up? Well, they I think there are you know, for the first time, putting the most intense documents right in front of them and seeing how they react, and I think what we've gotten out of them, especially on Facebook. Is already some admissions of anti competitive intent that to my mind, make the case for filing a complaint even stronger. And what were some of those admissions that you heard today. Well, Ah. Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about by Jerry Nadler about the his. Ah, why he bought Instagram and pretty much Zuckerberg admitted they were ah, dangerous competitors. We sought to eliminate them at Natalie reminded him that it's illegal to buy off competitors because I don't want to compete with them, and they left it there. But, yeah, that was, I think a big admission and the main thing I've taken from the hearing so far. But isn't that part of business of hostile takeovers and trying to squeeze out the competition isn't part of the American way of doing business, so there's a difference between beating out your competitors and buying them. And since about 18 90. It's been illegal to buy a company just because you're sick of competing with him. You know, you could imagine. Let's take Coke was tired of Pepsi People's Children, Coke and Pepsi, you know and said, All right, forget it. We'll just buy each other and, you know, settle the so so Now it's been illegal since 18 90 or so. Right. So when it comes to Facebook, what about the issues of how it Spreads misinformation, especially campaign misinformation, and, you know, fake news for lack of a better term. Yeah, I know. It hasn't so far. Um, it has a little bit sorry, especially hate speech. I think the big issue there that they're focusing on and Is this idea that that Facebook has an impunity because they have such a secure market position that they're not really afraid of advertising boycotts. They're not really afraid of people leaving That's the least a point that the House representatives were trying to make, and so therefore they don't really have an incentive to clean up their act. What about the other companies? Amazon that also has incredible market share. Can you first catalogue just how big Amazon is and how much bigger it's gotten since the current virus epidemic? Yeah, you know, the Amazon has closed in on the market cap of 1.5 trillion They have 280 billion in revenue. They have increased dramatically. Actually, stock prices increased since the beginning of the Corona virus by I don't know the exact percentage don't want to get it wrong, but by a tremendous amount, in fact, And there was one day in which Jeff Bezos gained $13 billion personally, so they are the biggest of big attack for the first part of hearing they didn't get any questions, but representative Dia Paul brought it in accusing them. Of lying in front of Congress about how they treat third party sellers and pressing bass. Those hard on how he runs his marketplace. So they they, they've got some of they've got some fire. Coming in. Yeah, I guess the problem. There is not only well they sell, you know products from third parties always there slow selling their own products, and so they are. I guess in competition with 1/3 party supplies on their own platform. How does that work? I mean, that's I think the acquisition or the problem is that people worry that Amazon has become more or less the dominant online retailer. They have some competition Homer, but you know, more or less dominant. So you make it on Amazon are Or you don't make it at all. And if that's the marketplace, the prospect of You come up with successful thing? I don't know Better mousetrap, and then Amazon makes their own copy of it. So the Amazon version of it and then sells it for less. You know, that turns into a sucker's game, and I think that's been the main complaint about Amazon is ah, less that they You know about their competitors or something but more that they have turned the marketplace into something of a rigged game for their own products. Right and a sweet noted Jeff Bezos is the world's richest man. Right now, the company is you outline is just so big. It's hard to even wrap your mind around it. Is there any way you could break up Amazon or hasn't just become too big to break up? That's a good question. You know, it hasn't been subject to a lot of discussion, probably for the reasons you suggest. Most of scrutiny of Amazon is how they treat the marketplace. I think for a true old school antitrust type who just believes that too much power to concentrated should always be broken. Would want to switch, you know, break Amazon into some kind of pieces. One way might be to break off their Web services division, which is a dominant in its space. You could also imagine, as with it and t breaking it into baby Amazons. I guess that are supposed to compete with each other. But I know it hasn't been unlike Facebook and even Google. Has been talks about how would you break them up? Think Amazon. It's been more about can they? Can you get them to run their at their market place better? And then Google. Obviously a search giant and it's become a verb. It's such an intimate part of who we are at this point again. How would you break up Google if you could It's a good question. Let me let me say that Google has come under fire this hearing both from Sicily knee on the idea that they are essentially eating their ecosystem That is to say. You know if you if you like like with Amazon actually similar that if You know, you could come up with a really successful Web service of some kind in your sort of small enough that Google will make a version of it and then send all the traffic to it so that that's the accusation against them. As for you know, what would you do to Google one You could say, don't do that. That's what the Europeans are trying to dio. Another would be to say, Well, listen, it Google, you run the search part and just leave it there. Don't do everything else. Okay. Maybe run Gmail, maybe right maps. But all these other little things that are just clones of other companies. Stay out of that, or make them be independent companies. I should add. By the way, there's you know, I'm maybe we get to this, but there's been AH, Google face us a lot of Republicans during the hearing, talking about different issues. Trying to get Google to admit that it Ah Is too friendly to China. Eyes too unfriendly to the US Pentagon. That's been another theme of this hearing is that I think should be mentioned. Well, you bring up China, and I guess the argument against breaking up these companies is that they're competing against Chinese companies, which In many cases have the backing of the state and there's there's no limit to their monopolistic practices. And so if these are global companies, should there be different rules when it comes to monopoly now than there were, you know, back in the 19th century. Yeah. Or the 20th? Yeah, that is the argument. So you know, kind of goes like this. If you break up Facebook or make fix books, life difficulty the Chinese will take over. It's kind of a national champion like argument. So we have to have our guys. Um I don't find it convincing at all. Last time we heard that kind of argument was when Japan was the all great mighty power that was going to take over everything in America. And they said it so you can't break up the tea and you can't break up IBM. I think we've had a better track record. Forcing American companies to be competitive. It's not breaking them up, at least putting him under heavy scrutiny like Microsoft and hoping a new generation arises. So yeah, I think that's a pretty lame excuse not to enforce the law that put it that way. So what do you think is going to come out of this? You know, I think from what I've heard there was some documents that were coming out of this that nobody has seen. And I think they put more pressure on the administration and also the states to file complaints. I would not be surprised if Google ends up on the receiving end of an antitrust complaint before November. And after this hearing, I wonder of Facebook's gonna get 12 or whether that's going to be something that the election decides. But, yes, I think it adds to the pressure to file actual cases as opposed to talking about it.

the house impeachment instigation because Jerry Nadler it was amazing Jerry Nadler was amazing and transparent in telling the United States Senate and all of its senators that if you do not vote my way you are now on American and he also called him a liar and this is a this is amazing and John Roberts was nice Chief Justice John Roberts who literally has almost no role in this even though he he does but he doesn't anything he decides can be overruled by the Senate a simple majority the Senate so he says you can do that your need to step down and the fifty one senators vote he's wrong he's he's done so he has he done with that he'll be overlooked that so he has very little power honestly almost no power whatsoever but he admonished them and nobody wants to look bad like that so he said both of you which will play all the highlights of that in a second but the big deal here is that he was obviously admonishing Nadler for saying that their treat their traitorous traders here I'll I'm gonna play this for you because this is this is really incredible but never did last night we should be surprised that here in the United States Senate actually I should say this morning right executive producer Chris the greatest a limited body in the world we we are expected to put our oath of office ahead of political expediency by the way he says the greatest but deliberate about in the world sort of which he already knowledge is it it's not like he doesn't acknowledging still says you're a bunch of friggin American trainer if if you don't vote my way listen where we expected to be honest where we are expected to protect the interests of the American people we should be surprised shocked that any senator would vote to block this witness or any relevant witness who might shed additional light on the president's obvious misconduct he's talking about voting against sipping a Bolton will you vote to allow all of the relevant evidence to be presented here well you betray your pledge to be an impartial juror would you bring ambassador both in here will you permit us to present you with the entire record of the president's misconduct what will you instead choose to be complicit in the president's cover up okay so you're you're complicit in a cover up or go back a second would you bring ambassador both in here would you permit us to present you with the entire record of the press is misconduct or will you instead choose to be complicit in the president's cover up so far I'm sad to say I see a lot of senators voting for a cover up he is sharing them this short squat weevil wobble is that sure is like that isn't that character angry from what was that the card doubles at the movie we all saw I saw I saw which **** the emotions that are in your head and you know they the guy was anger the guy was angry guy whatever he would freak out at the flames come out of it said that movie I remember what it is is a dream works with what that was a big one he's like that guy and it's amazing he thinks he can come to their house and tell them what to do it shows you the arrogance and the blindness of these folks voting to deny witnesses absolutely indefensible vote obviously a treacherous about a travel to vote against an honest consideration of the evidence of the against the president a vote against an honest trial a vote against the United States you're on American your body against the US if you don't fall my way I'm in your house telling you I'm telling you you're covering up if you don't go my way are the you want the truth or you and you must permit the witnesses or you want a shameful cover up history will judge and so the electorate area go you wanna shameful cover up because you voted against me is what he said I'll play the rebuttals from mom I got the secular and simple only rebuttals but I will play the Moblin optimize will kind of give you the context so simple only what next executive producer Chris right on make sure I get this and write or sit baloney the president's lead counsel I want but first we've been respectful of the Senate we've made our arguments to you and you don't deserve and we don't deserve what just happened Mister Nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team he made false allegations against all of you he accused you of a cover up he's been making false allegations against the president the only one who should be embarrassed Mister Nadler is you for the way you've addressed this body this is the United States Senate you're not in charge here Hey in the J. secular the president's counsel's well German Nadler talked about treacherous at about twelve ten AM January twenty second the chairman of the Judiciary Committee if this body on the floor of the Senate said executive privilege and other nonsense now think about that for a moment executive privilege and other nonsense Mr number is not nonsense these are privileges recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States that is winning that is winning Jay Sekulow continued the constitution doesn't allow which is the place what we've dealt with for the last now thirteen hours now that is a good one right in local we've dealt with this man just use my brain this piece of evidence this man right here behold look what we've been doing he should have been say look we've been dealing with for three years and we hopefully are closing the proceedings but not on a very high note only guilty people try to hide evidence so I guess when president Obama instructed Attorney General do not give information he was guilty of a crime that's the way it works pause it right there bring is that what you were United States constitution because that's not the way it was written that is not the way it's interpreted and is not the way the American people should have to live I'll tell you what's treacherous come to the floor of the Senate and say executive privilege and other nonsense we are the rest of our time I like it and then George Roberts comes out admonishes which is a a warning I think it is appropriate at this point for me to admonish both the house managers and the president's council in equal terms I had to remember that they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body one reason it has earned that title is because its members avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil discourse in the nineteen oh five swing trial of senator objected when one of the managers use the word petty **** and the presiding officer said the word ought not to have been used I don't think we need to see a spire to that higher standard but I do think those addressing the Senate should remember where they are talking by the way is placing undue.

"So let's talk a little bit about the lawyers who are testifying. Because it's kind of interesting. I was looking looking at the lineup and for people who read or listened to slate. There are a lot of familiar people who are going to be up there first up. This Guy Noah Feldman we've had him as a guest on the show before he's most famously known as the guy who went and worked on Iraq's constitution for President George W Bush when the very young right I mean they're young and to me I saw him on. This list does like in the before times this would be like a conciliatory move for the Democrats towards the Republicans. Look we have this guy who's sort of a neutral figure who Republicans have trusted. But I'm not sure that's GONNA come come off this way this time around Yeah no film is someone who is extremely well credentialed and is in an especially partisan person but he has a lot of expertise expertise on impeachment and he has written some opinion columns The show he's quite concerned about this. So you know he might be very good witness for for Democrats in this case. He's not not someone who can be slammed as a partisan but who is deeply troubled about what president trump has done and knows his stuff. Yeah there's someone else on this list who also caught my eye which is is Her name is Pamela Carlin from Stanford and she caught my eye. Because I'd heard her on asleep. PODCAST on amicus. I think it was last month. Because she was just arguing in front of the Supreme Court in favor of gay rights. Basically saying you can't be fired for being gay because it's a sex discrimination and the reason why I was struck by the fact that she was on this list was not only because she's been talked about as a potential Supreme Court justice herself which is interesting but but because she joked with the Supreme Court justices when she was up there like she made an snl reference she referred to. Its Pat in answering one of the questions which the justices this is did not get by the way but got sort of laughs from the crowd but it struck me that she might be a good witness in the same way. Fiona Hill was in that that she won't take a lot of Goth from people who are looking to push her around yet. It might help Democrats just in terms of keeping interest trysts in this hearing. You know so. It doesn't just become the sort of academic seminar that Republicans are portraying it at us. Yeah Jonathan Turley is the Republican choice. And and he's the sort of interesting guy. He testified in favor of Clinton's impeachment. You know a few years back but he also just read an article that was called. How the the Democrats can build a better case for impeachment? So I guess he's sort of new neutral a little bit but his main advice was you need to get first-hand first-hand witnesses which is interesting because it's not that the Democrats don't want firsthand witnesses. They're just being prevented from getting them. You know he's been in in the public spotlight for a while. His politics are it can be a little all over the place depending on the time He's I mean he's pretty libertarian. Overall but You Know He. He was quite critical of certain aspects of the Bush presidency torture. Now he is. He's sort of come out. Criticizing lot of allow things. Democrats have done And I think that's why Republicans are bringing them on because he's you know I think on this particular case Pretty close to their position this hearing with the Constitutional Scholars I. It seems like a way for Democrats continue with inquiry carefully. But they don't have a lot of time if they want to vote on impeachment by Christmas. Jim Says it's GonNa be a Mad Dash. The House of Representatives has already extended session by a week. It wasn't supposed to be there till December twentieth but they will know sorry. Jim No vacation for you. Well I don't know if I'm ever GONNA leave the capital because the twentieth going to be sort of the apocalypse I mean. The twentieth is going Media Apocalypse Lips. It's going to be the apocalypse because we have. That's the government funding deadline. And that's that's when it looks like they'll probably vote impeachment if they're able to get it done beforehand hand and it's also the day that the new star wars movie comes out so like everything's happening on December twentieth and we got one of these one of these. Very chilling notes from the majority leader's office. It says changing the schedule and says we will now be going till Friday December twentieth remember should be advised that votes are possible after three. PM which book your flights right. which don't book your flights and and also you're going to be four in the morning? Maybe so yeah it's GonNa be it's GonNa be a sprint. Can you just lay out. The dance moves are going to have to do Over the next three weeks to get this finished. It's a pretty clear schedule of what you do. They're going to have this. You know academic seminar with the law professors first and then they would give you know the president a day or at least a session with his lawyers to make their case against it and then they would go to drafting and amending and marking up a specific articles. They would vote it out of committee. They debate on the floor and the vote out of the floor is just something saying that especially when you want to give people enough notice to prepare their arguments and you want to space out hearings. That's usually what makes us take awhile. Two and a half weeks is especially when they're no more hearing scheduled for this very week. I mean that's really quite condensed. So you know we'll see if there's any pressure you know if there's any pressure from the public or within the caucus to space this out over Christmas but Democrats have never announced a timetable because you never announce a timetable. Well if you're not completely sure but it's pretty clear. The marching orders are to get this done before Christmas. It just seems like it's GonNa it's GonNa feel Pretty Rush Jim Newell.

"So we're about to see these hearings things in the judiciary committee and this is coming after a couple of pretty barbed letters back and forth between the Chairman of that committee Jerry Nadler Learn and Pats at Bologna. The White House counsel what of these guys been saying to each other. Well if we go back to the impeachment process resolution the Democrats. It's passed last month laying out the process once the process reach Judiciary Committee after the Intelligence Committee had passed off. Its findings The president would have a right to participate in the hearings. Have Their Council present Ask questions present their defense. So Nadler sent a letter last week. Asking the White House if they would participate in this first hearing pretty simple letter they got a response from White House. Counsel Pat Sipa Loney earlier. This week that was about five pages of ranting about the process saying it's you know unfair and a sham. They will not participate in the first hearing but they would consider participating in future ones. The hearing today seems a little academic Democ a bunch of constitutional lawyers getting together and sort of talking about what is impeachment. What is the committee need to do today? Eh I think that Democrats just want to have some experts in there to say that what the president has done is well within the bounds of what the founders considered high crimes and misdemeanors and the sort of behavior they left impeachment in the constitution for I did enjoy in White House counsel Pat Sip Bolognaise. He's led the committee. He called it a after the fact. Constitutional Law Seminar and an invitation to an academic discussion with law professors. I mean he was essentially actually saying what I think the. GOP response to this hearing will be which is boring snooze. You know. We don't need to hear these expert. This hearing is a is a waste of time but it is keeping keeping in precedent with the Clinton patron where they did open with a similar hearing from experts just to get a grounding for what constitutes an impeachable offenses one of the lawyers who is showing today actually did testify in the Clinton impeachment to so these people have been around for a while talking about this very issue right. Passable got to Bologna is the president's lawyer of course and a lot has been made about the fact that he and the president. no-one from their team is showing up here. But in some ways I read that letter that you're talking about and I was kind of as a point. This is a an academic exercise. I don't know what the lawyer for the president would be doing it. These hearings right. Yeah I don't know if it's that important for the White House to have a presence here I mean. Would they just sit in a chair. Aaron watches experts have their academic discussion. So I don't think that was. It's really that necessary for the White House to have someone here. You know they can just use as another opportunity you to send out a letter that says this whole process Sham White House lawyers are not the only ones criticizing. This impeachment process is illegitimate. After after weeks of congressional hearings Republican lawmakers released a scathing summary report of their own rejecting most of the sworn testimony. Can you talk a little bit about looking at that report. Hundred Twenty three pages long. What you thought about how? The Republicans are honing honing their strategy. Here yeah well you know some had been wondering if Republicans after all this testimony if they would move to a a point of well. The president clearly made some mistakes but we don't think it rises to the level of impeachment. At least in the House that is not where they are they are very much at the point of the president. Did nothing wrong. Democrats crafted a fictional narrative. I mean the report that the Republicans release which is one hundred twenty three pages. I admit I did not read all of it But you know it's it does not say there's even a hint wrongdoing. It says the president you know presents Alinsky and Ukraine was elected. The the hold on aid was put so that the president has team could vet him to make sure that there wasn't any You know to make sure they wasn't just another corrupt leader of Ukraine eventually. Eventually they determined that he was not and they really hold which is sort of the theory that Jim Jordan one of the the main Republicans on the Intel Committee who will also be on the Judiciary Committee that was his theory that he together so yeah. Republicans are really holding this line that like literally the present did nothing wrong. And perhaps it is job. Excellently and Democrats just can't handle it and are trying to overthrow him but of course. There was this reporting in the last week that the president knew about the whistle blower report before he released the aid and so it becomes this circle of well. He released the aid but did he know Some evidence is being left out. Some evidence is being included. Yeah I mean I think. Republicans aren't really paying attention to the details or the nuances in any of the you know any of the explosive testimony. That may have come out in the weeks before. And they're using sort of the lack of a smoking smoking triple smoking gun. I E president trump. You know shaking presents Alinsky by the lapels and demanding these investigations and they're just exploring that to say that the president did nothing wrong. Everything else is here. Say Okay When this was in front of the Intelligence Committee we Devin nunes? WHO's the ranking member of that committee? Really making these arguments to just look anywhere else. But the president that hearing was the pitiful finale of a three year long operation by the Democrats the corrupt media and partisan some bureaucrats to overturn the results of the two thousand sixteen election and he was bringing in a lot of conspiracy theories. There's a lot of talk about this Democratic Arctic operative named Alexandra Chalupa but I think that Doug Collins who is the ranking member on the judiciary committee might take a different approach. Do you want to lay out a little bit. How his strategy might look different than what we saw in the intelligence committee? Yes so you know. In the Intelligence Committee. We saw a lot have Jim Jordan. Doing a lot of the taking the lead in a lot of ways whereas devin nunes was just sort of sarcastic little conspiratorial. But it didn't didn't didn't really use lavas time. Doug towns could be a little bit more like Jim Jordan and that he's GonNa talk really fast he's GonNa try to trip up the witnesses. He's going to try to sure about the other Democrats on the committee is also true that you issued over two hundred twenty eight hundred subpoenas executed nearly five hundred search warrants of more than two hundred and thirty orders for communication records and fifty pen in registers. That went a little fast for me. Okay in your report at this very simple you did a lot of work right. Yeah I agree so I think you're just gonNA see him throwing a lot of wrenches into What Nadler's trying to do lots of points of order lots of parliamentary inquiries and Nadler Adler you know some Democrats say is not as quick on his feet at shutting those down as Adam Schiff was so? I think that they're just gonNA. They're going going to try to take advantage of Nadler's Sometimes good impulses to allow points of order and parliamentary maneuvers to be voiced out loud into gum up the proceedings. Yeah it's interesting because watching the hearings over the last few weeks with Adam Schiff and control. He was really able to keep a tight rein green on things like he would banged that gavel and just no no no no suspend not recognize have a point of is not recognizable point of order. Now John was not recognized. I do WanNa respond allowed to order. I jump is not recognized in there. Four minute scripts. That have been in. Relief is not recognized ranking member was what is it that allows him to do that. But people worry a little bit about Nadler's capability of doing the same thing. Well I think one of the low points for Democrats is Congress was the Testimony with Corey Lewandowski. Who is the president's former campaign manager in the Judiciary Committee in mid-september sort of just before this Ukraine scan was breaking up and loon doc- came in and stonewalled? The Committee made a mockery of it. You know he he would refuse to answer a lot of questions. And there was one really excruciating moment with Nadler specifically were Nadler Adler asked him a very basic question. Like you met with the president this date and wanted to ask you said oh I need to see the page report where it says that seventeen gene you met alone in the Oval Office with the president. Could you read the exact language of the reporter. I don't have it available to me. I don't think I need to do that. And I have limited time. Did you meet alone with the Krizan that date to refresh my memory by providing a copy of the report so I can follow along. You don't have a copy with. I don't have a copy of the report congressman and then Collins would chime in about how Nadler couldn't stop clock during all. This one's the questions I asked Mr Chairman. The clock overview sick and Line German gentlemen one of order a witness has the timing. Nadler seem to get a little bit flustered so it took three minutes for now to get Lebowski to sort of admit that he met with trump on this specific day. And that's I think what Democrats are a little worried about is just that that. He's he could allow the the works to get gummed up and he also has to deal with a much larger committee. I mean there are I think. Twenty three people on the Intelligence Committee Eh. Their forty one people on the Judiciary Committee. Silly Double Yeah nearly double and you also have a lot more you know you have a lot more showboats. I guess you could say the Judiciary Judiciary Committee who might want to jump in and try to gum up Nadler. So I think you know it's not that Nadler's necessarily uniquely bad of this or something thing I think it's just a difficult job in general to try to keep an impeachment hearing something that polarizing on track when you have such a difficult called committee to manage so there are a lot of cats to herd and there are more like outdoor cats on this committee ads. Yeah.

I don't think about Al Qaeda and the only killed three thousand people on nine eleven. No, it goes far beyond that the number of police officers and firefighters. First responders that have fallen ill have died, or they are going to die, or lives that have been so ill affected, because of health issues. And I don't know why we have to go through this.
