But some Senate Democrats have been against naming recently retired officers to be the Pentagon's chief like with Jim Mattis in 2017, they may have to reverse themselves to support Austin, who says he's now a civilian leader with a deep appreciation. In reverence for the prevailing wisdom. Civilian control of our military, noting he went four years ago from being general lost in two now. Just Lloyd Austin Soccer Megane Washington.

Thank you for being with us tonight. Good to join you. This this whole notion. As we noted, with with Jim Mattis, President Trump's nominee to be defense secretary, there was a waiver approved. Certainly it is. Very desirable that there be civilian control of the military. Of course, the the commander in chief is a civilian, but we've always gone too deep with a civilian. Uh, defense Secretary and even beyond that, of course, civilian secretaries of the Army and the Navy and air Force, But despite that the idea is that you should stay, I guess at least at least three deep. Uh, I don't recall that it was that big A deal with Jim Mattis got a waiver. Is it that big A deal for this individual? I don't think it's gonna be a huge deal for General Austin. There's some people you know. Jack Reid in the Senate is a guy who stands out a former paratrooper himself, who come out pretty strongly, you know, previously and said they were Opposed to the waiver or we're going to make a one time exception for General Mattis. I think back then people you know when, when Jeremiah's has confirmed a zoo President Trump's first defense secretary, I think there was a You know, Mattis was a big was a big, well known kind of personality, almost a military celebrity of sorts, You know, maybe near kind of general traces level in that regard, and there was a sense he was, You know, I'd buy bars and respect and the scene is kind of adult in the room with a The president coming in with no governing experience and no foreign policy experience, so they're equipped to grant him a waiver. This may be a little more of a discussion of back and forth. But now that the You know, no gentleman is kind of broke that norm, which had really been employees will meet with only one exception with George Marshall. Hey, it's gonna be hard for people to turn around and say Well, now we can't justify this one, you know? I don't. I don't anticipate that being a being a stumbling blocks. It's gonna It's gonna hold his confirmation. I would I would have to wonder if, in fact it would and again, given what, regardless of the outcome Of the Georgia Senate run offs. January The fifth will still be very closely divided US Senate For that matter. The House is very closely divided as well. It would seem that There would be a tendency for Democrats to pull together this one. In fact, speaking of the political process, I don't recall hearing any Republicans having taken the position. On the potential of nomination of Lloyd Austin. Yeah, it's been pretty muted. I've seen a few folks further down the food chain. Um, my Gallagher in the house there came out sort of against itches, E. I mean, you know he didn't have any real say but They're They're people that wanted, Maura. They, um more specific focus More of more of a China focus and General Austin coming up through the army and being, you know, Middle East focus guy throughout his career and his deployments would you expect from someone his generation? Uh, Doesn't really fit that mold. So you've never been some little stuff there, but I haven't seen any senators taking a strong stand on that. I think as your focused pretty tightly on Georgia right now, in terms of the whole notion of a quote China focus. I mean, that's pretty much more of something to be of the concern of the Let's say the secretary of state, would it not be or someone handling issues of of trade or related issues. Inasmuch as we haven't actually thought the Chinese now since 1953 and there are no immediate prospects for doing so, a little granted, the Chinese and the United States have Have been semi belligerent of times, at least in terms of rhetoric. I'm not sure that a lack of a China focus on the part of Lloyd Austin necessarily would affect his performance as defense secretary should he be confirmed. Well, I think you do hold only after they have to make trade offs and have to decide how to use the resource of this country. In the resource is we allocate the national defense right? And I think that, um you know, there's some revealing marks. By General Milley, who's Who's going to be? You know the outgoing chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, but soon I think, but I don't really even you know again. Who's a guy? Like what?

And it's the only so many rice balls only from the resource is so if we're going to have a focus on the Pacific if we do review China as the Preeminent military threat, despite as you said, no no record of hostilities since Korea with us you've got to decide how to allocate that the service budget in the army despite what they're saying, and some of their talk and someone investment's technology. Not really there to fight a what's going with the enable one Pacific If it came to that, in other words, you're suggesting. I guess that not only are there questions about whether another should be a waiver for this law. That active duty military personnel will be out of uniformly seven years before taking the position of defense secretary. There's also fear that this person being a retired army officer would discriminate against the Navy, the Air Force and now the space forces that is that the feeling I think there might be..

"I think twice in the past has Congress granted a waiver. The most recent one, of course, was for General Jim Mattis for Donald Trump. But you cannot argue with Austin's qualifications of the only The only argument raised is, Are we going to do this again? And I would have to say, I think it's very hard to say we granted one to Jim Mattis. We're not going to give one toe Lloyd Austin, I think after Mattis is waiver of that the awesome waiver will happen with both Democratic and Republican votes. Alice. You shouldn't President Biden have the team he wants. He absolutely should. And I agree with Bill on those points and look, he is a man of tremendous integrity. He certainly has the experience. He certainly has the background and military to do the job. Just as general Mattis did, and I agree, if if you approve the waiver for Mattis, it seems as though the same would go for with regard to Lloyd Austin, and it's interesting to see a lot of Democrats acknowledge. Well, I didn't approve the waiver for Mattis, so I can't justify doing it in this case, so Will be certainly a lot of soul searching, but I do think he certainly has the qualifications and Joe Biden does. He has the the right and certainly the responsibility to himself in this party to nominate people that he feels will be beholden to his ideology and his ideas but also Do the job with the skills and requirements necessary and Bill pressured. One of those people nominated be Ohio Congresswoman Marsha Fudge. If she's confirmed his housing secretary, by the way, we're in a lot of black leaders wanted her instead of Tom Vilsack for ahead of the agriculture to shift that agency from farmlands a little more to nutrition and food stamps. But if she's confirmed its housing secretary, the Democrats have been down with five seat majority in the House, the slimmest majority in decades. Yep, it Z getting it's getting a little thin. There. You have to count Cedric Richmond to who will be leaving the house African American from New Orleans to join the vice the president elect on the new president in the White House. It just means Democrats have to work harder and harder to hold onto those two. Caesar took both pretty safe Democratic seats. But you know, I come back to One of the one of the deals when you win is you get to pick your team on you get to pick your team and put them where you want them. And I think Joe Biden is doing that. And I think Martha Fudge will be confirmed and Democrats will hold onto that seat. Okay? We only have a half a minute. I'm gonna each of you say, whose fault is it? That we don't have money that we're getting out of the pandemic, and you can't say the other party, Alice. It is Congress as a whole. Look, we're still talking about the same issues, direct payments, state and local cash liability the same issues,.

reading the selection of stories that Matt drudge in his team put together are second to none this this is like the cliff notes version to what's going on in the news instead of having to go to about fifty different websites which I still do anyway you can pretty much get a sense of what's important for conservatives and important for everybody what what is going to be the focus of the day you just go to the drudge report over the last month it is bad I'm candy how many stories have been negative about this president coming from drudge I I mean there is just a pronounced shift at it's it's kind of shocking the top story today maddest roasts trump link to a CBS news story Jim Mattis fires back at president trump for over radiated insult former defense secretary Jim Mattis who is largely shied away from the spotlight since leaving office last December took aim at president trump in a speech at the seventy fourth annual out pretty Smith memorial foundation dinner in New York Thursday night guests at the dinner usually it lampoon politicians but the mocking tone was a departure for matters who is generally refused to criticize the president's foreign policy action since leaving office the Freddie Smith dinner gets big coverage every four years because both presidential candidates attended it's it's become a tradition every single election year both candidates go and they rip on themselves they rip on the other wives it's a joke they're they're jokes they're telling jokes so Jim Mattis was there and when you speak you're expected to tell jokes so we said I earned my spurs on the battlefield Donald Trump earn his spurs in a letter from a doctor actually a pretty good line it refers to the bone spurs that kept trump from serving in the Vietnam War at another point in his remarks Mattis responded to reports that Mr trump called in the world's most overrated general Matt is joked that he felt like he had achieved greatness because he was not just an overrated general I am the greatest the world's most overrated I'm honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress so I guess I'm the Meryl Streep of generals frankly that sounds pretty good to me it's a joke these these these are jokes this is what he was asked to do but all throughout the media James Mattis it's on loading on trump what's surprising to me is that drudge is sort of going right along with this feeding frenzy I'm not sure if job the drudge in his editorial team because I know he's got a staff of people that are manning the site twenty four seven or at least close to twenty four seven they slack a little bit on the weekends that the site is an upload it as quickly as on the week days as one might expect but it's just shocking to see that every twist every turn that the top story before the the James Mattis thing it was a headline that read quid pro no a picture of Mick Mulvaney with a link to you again a story that only showed are only featured the out of context remarks that the media's been using to twist and turn it's just it's a shocking departure from drudge and I I can't quite figure it if he and his team believe the Ukraine allegations if this is just an attempt to get a little bit more I don't know middle of the road in terms of their presentation because drudge's obviously reliable conservative and he did however make his make his name during the Clinton impeachment I mean he was the one who essentially broke the story wide open when the rest of the media would that there was this intern named Monica Lewinsky and this of course got the ball rolling with the eventual impeachment on the grounds of what was it again no it was not engaging in sex in the oval office it was perjury it was in fact a high crime and misdemeanor why under oath that the the president and the evidence was crystal clear Clinton perjured himself I mean he lied in his statement to invest a he he lied there was just I mean that to me was an open and shut case well it depends on right it depends on what your definition of is is remember that one so I don't know if this is drugs just kind of going with the flow and trying to sensationalize what has got to be a massive story for him I mean I go to the drudge report every single day but what ABS all right what I want to get to I took some people off yes I think I'm going to the other big criticism of trump is this violation potentially of the emoluments clause which states essentially you can't make money off of the presidency you can't do something that directly benefits you president trump announced yesterday that he is holding the G. seven at his derail hotel and resort is this a direct violation of the emoluments clause no it's not because trump has in fact divested himself and and put control of the truck properties in the hands of his sons remember you faca went with dad to work on policy something I've been very critical of the nepotism there with her and Kushner primarily because they're infinitely more liberal than Daddy is but don junior and Eric are running the businesses trump did in fact divest himself however holding something as big as the G. seven at derail does give an impression that way it's basically an advertisement for a property owned by trump okay this is the the entire world is going to descend upon derail at a truck property for this it's it's not just about all well all the rooms are going to be rented out it's the fact that the lingering a fact here that a truck property is going to be the center of the political media universe they are doing it for cost this is this is another yes Dave did say they're going to try to work out how they can do it so that there is no profit but the problem is the the advertised and there is a benefit and this is why it's not this is not a violation of the emoluments clause but it gives the wrong impression and this is why I was surprised that president trump did it because I mean he's not dumb Donald Trump made his name off of his name he he made his name but he made arguably his his fortune his fortune certainly took a hit in the nineties with the failure of the trump casino in in Atlantic city any rebuilt his name with the apprentice and then all of a sudden he he revitalized his image as this genius businessman so he understands the value of getting the trump name out there now of course it's impossible to have the truck name out there anymore than it is now but to have a trump property being essentially advertise like this I just have a bit of an issue with do we have people who want to call in and and have we taken that we haven't taken any calls today so all right I I guess we've got time for one Russ how you doing Sir you're on the Dan o'donnell show I think one of the big reasons the seven at the rose you cannot trust people there have resolved blog swept and do whatever you got to do folders and all fighting going on again from the deep state I what then what will we can trust the people that are there and well we obviously can't I mean there were there were leaks coming out of trump properties in trump resorts throughout the presidency so this was pretty much in the beginning when he didn't know how deep it went that they were gonna yeah I purchased some protection but I mean you're always gonna have some blades some waiter you know what I'm saying there's a limited I mean you're not gonna be planted there was some Chinese woman coming in with by where to plant on this one yeah wasn't that bad to Ralph either way you still think it was through this or that that's still sort of under cut your own argument though right they call it they call it you know what I mean but the fact that she got on the property and was mingling with everybody it I see where you're trying to go with this Russia and and believe me I understand that aspect of the argument I just I don't think it's as as powerful or a winning

"I think that there is a certain breaking point that these people have to speak out with and to me, I wrote a Washington Post op Ed a couple of weeks ago where I said, look, I think that you should leave. If you're in a situation where you're doing things that you think are jeopardizing American and international security. But do it in a way that's actually going to cause some damage don't write a flowery op Ed that uses words about the international order, you know, go on Fox News and explain this person is unfit for office. I don't think Donald Trump could put Afghantistan on a map and somebody around him in the White House knows that if they think that's true, or if he couldn't play Venezuelan a map where he doesn't know basic facts about NATO that should be public knowledge. And so I think the people who leave need to be much more blunt in their assessments of Donald Trump because he represents a different and unique threat that past presidents had partisan. Squabbles over this is about fitness and basic understanding of how the world works is the risk though that those people popping up on Fox News and saying basically in a polite way, this guy's an idiot skies, a more on the people who like him are going to change their opinion. As a consequence they going to believe that when Trump comes out and says, he's just dumb as a rock. Yes. And that's one of the problems. But if you take that sort of. Listrik view. Then that's always true, right? There's nothing that's going to change them. Jim Mattis carries a lot of weight in the Republican caucus. If he says, this person doesn't have a basic understanding of world affairs. He doesn't read which came pretty close in his resignation letter. He did. But it was in ways that were very very elite oriented in other words, he spoke to elites he did not go on Fox News and say, I tried to get President Trump to read something, and he does not read when that cut through the noise now, I don't know if that's true. That's what some allegations have said about how the White House functions. But my point is that there's a bluntness that needs to be here. So that it does actually resonate with people. And the other thing is I think we need to stop worrying about making sure that Trump's base turns on him. That's not going to happen. What is important is is to ensure that the independence who already have turned on Trump continued to do? So and recognize the threat to the presidency because if Trump only had his base if you only had thirty percent of the US public as most bills suggests that's the size of his base. Then he's dead in the water, and he could never be reelected. The question is can he win back? Those people on the fence who may have voted for him in two thousand sixteen but are sort of hesitant about doing. So in two thousand twenty and that's where these resignations can really make a dent Brian class. Thanks very much for coming in this evening.

"There's a picture emerging based on recent events that gives us the idea of the US stepping back from the world while other countries friend and follow alike step in to fill. The void much of this picture is the result of President Trump's America first impulses increasingly coming to the fore. But that isn't all Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, the most prominent democrat to announce a presidential run has called for withdrawing all troops from Iraq as well as Afghanistan analysis from Jerry cyb, executive Washington editor at the Wall Street Journal, Jerry, how do you see it? Well, you look at what's happened in the US in recent weeks. You know, the administration has basically started the process of withdrawing troops from Syria and Afghanistan. There's a actual physical wall. That's under debate to separate the US from Mexico. Jim Mattis secretary resigned in part and a letter that basically said I think we have to value alliances in relationships and partnerships around the world and by location, saying the Trump administration has a care about allies and partners anymore. And by the way, trade disputes with allies and enemies posts continue. Meanwhile, you look around the world other countries are kind of coming together in new alliances without the US being involved. There's a new Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement eleven countries involved that went into effect at the start of the year. US is not in that because it's decided not to take part. And there's a new economic agreement being worked out over the next couple of weeks, a European Union, and Japan that's gonna kick in the US won't be part of that China's on a whole is embarking on a whole series of new free trade agreements with countries and regional groups around the world on its own in the midst of all that Russia dispatched a couple of strategic bombers to Venezuela. A couple of weeks ago to say, basically, we think we have the right to have a military presence in Latin America, and you put all those things together, and you sort of get a picture of US pulling back from the world and other countries, friends and foes alike. Stepping in to fill the void. I think there was a time. When a lot of the world would applaud this right as some might say US meddling elsewhere. But now, it seems that the world's getting a little nervous that we're pulling back. Well, you know, I I think a lot of sometimes other countries want to have it both ways they want the US to be involved as a protector, but don't want the US to be telling other people what to do. I I think we're now. Phase in that cycle in which what scares allies is a US retreat from the world, and they're trying to figure out, you know, can we count on in this environment? You know, we don't trust the Russians the Chinese scare us. And if he can particular people in Europe are wondering is the US is basically bugging out on us. Where do we go for protection? And how do we construct a different world order without the US as the leader? I'm that's literally what people in Europe are thinking about and to some extent, they're looking at each other and fancy in Germany, for example, have talked about constructing a new military partnership that would take the place of a NATO that the US doesn't seem interested in supporting anymore. Now, they can go so far down that road. And they still do need American leadership. I think what's happening right now is you have mostly allies, basically, pleading with the US from afar, not to disengage from the world not to retreat behind a wall, literally or figuratively, and you have adversaries Iran Russia. China kind of looking their chops and thinking that they can move in and take over some of that American influence. We're speaking with Wall Street Journal, executive Washington editor Jerry about his piece entitled as US footprints shrinks, others happily fill the void you alluded to right there. I do get the sense that. At the Kremlin or Beijing. High fives all around like let's get rolling on our to do list. Well, I think there is some of that. And I think, you know, China too complicated because on the one hand, they don't really want to have a giant trade fight with the US because that's hurting the economy, but on the other hand, if the US is going to back out of trade agreements in Asia, the Chinese are more than happy to step forward and say, hey, we're here, and by the way, the Chinese have many billions and trillions of dollars to spend on projects development projects in Europe in Asia in Africa. To expand their sphere of influence by simply buying it to some extent. And so that is happening, and they are very the Chinese have been very open with other countries and saying, you know, we always gonna have to be a new world order, the US isn't in charge anymore. And that's where the that's where the Chinese would like things to go makes Jerry that is Jerry Cy executive Washington editor at the Wall Street Journal, fourteen minutes now after the hour.

You sit everyone agrees pardon power as president, absolute unfettered, unchecked power to pardon? Every violator of every federal law could a president issued a pardon in exchange for a bribe. No. Senator. I think that question has been litigated before and I'm not going to answer. I don't want to comment about it. Pardon? I almost cope about their couple couple of things involved in that question one is, what's the scope of what's the effect of the pardon? And the other question is, can you be in separately charged with the bribery crime, both the bribery and the bribe e. Those are distinct questions. You want. You'd want to keep those two questions separate in thinking about how the hypothetical in that. This. Chairman, I got interrupted an awful lot. I just wanted to finish this, but I made sure that if the timer didn't treat well give him another minute. Grassley he's so in control, hey, forever. Painful. President. What's his name Trump? Yeah, has an absolute right to pardons. Does he. The question of self pardons is something I've never analyzed. Oh, come on. Same question that I have not written about. It's a question, therefore, that's a hypothetical question. I'm not going to answer that. I can't begin in this context is a sitting judge and as a nominee to the supreme. The other half of that is. The obvious one is president have the ability to pardon somebody in exchange for a promise from that person, they wouldn't testify against him, Sarah, I'm not going to answer hypothetical questions. He's not going to answer hypothetical questions rather than saying, of course, not a president. Can't pardon himself? What are you nuts and no, of course he can. He can't hold a pardon out there as a, you know, enticement for not not spilling the beans on what a witness knows about him. Unbelievable. This guy just won't commit to anything.
