"This's America changed forever from the CBS Audio Network. I'm Gil Gross. The United States is deep in a debate about police procedures and reforms. It's not a new debate, but it's one of the many sorts of debates and flare up after incidents and Then recede again after a few weeks, But not this time combination of videos and police chiefs and mayors, frustrated by efforts at reform in the past, seemed to have left the country in a mood to do something. This week, the House passed a police reform bill headed to an uncertain fate in the Senate. Congressman Jim McGovern is a Democrat and chairman of the House Rules Committee. Jim Good to have you with us. How are you? I'm doing fine. Happy to be with you before we get to the Justice and policing act and some of the things that are being considered in Congress. What do you think has changed Because we've had incidents like the incidents in the news before. We've had this conversation before, But it seems the public mood is very different. You're right. I mean, this is Not unique. Unfortunately, we've seen these kinds of murders happen Time and time again. You know, one of the things that I think made a difference here is that young teenage girl videotaped all of this for the whole world. To see anybody who watched that video had to be horrified. And as a result, I think you've seen unprecedented outrage at these protests have seen incredible diversity and the pressure is built on Congress to do something, and I think you know we have this moment, which seems a little bit different than in the past. Where we're actually gonna do something. I mean, what usually happens after these tragedies is that members of Congress issued a press release is saying or this is terrible, and we have to do it. Do something about systemic racism in this country, and then we move on to the next subject. But this is different than the Congressional Black Caucus, led by Jimmy Karen Bass is done an incredible job of putting together the George Boy Justice of policing after 2020 which I think takes a step step in the right direction. But you know what? The American people are waking up to injustice, and I don't know all the factors to make this moment Attorney point But thank God it is attorney. You're one of the many co sponsors of the Justice and Policing act. Can you explain to us what's in it, and then we can go through some of these points, one by one. I mean, there's a lot of different things in it. I mean, there's efforts to end racial religious profile. Found a better choke holds and no knock warrants. Limit limiting military equipment. Way have a program that where the Pentagon can provide equipment to our local police departments, and we've seen everything from tanks to grenade launchers being provided the local police departments and You know our citizens They're not enemy combatants on you shouldn't treat them as such. There's an effort to to deal with qualified immunity. No police accountable in court when they violate people's civil rights, a never to investigate police misconduct, more transparency by collecting data on police misconduct and use of force. I mean, there's a lot of other things in there, and this is not everything that needs to be addressed, but it is a step in the right direction, and I think it's a meaningful step in the right direction. Let's go through some of those things. But first, you know the general question that people are wondering about. We're talking about federal legislation. Things like banning choke holds at the federal level, but Many of these things we're going to be controlled by laws at the state level and how much control does the federal government have over that? Well, I mean, the federal government can't provide assistance in aid and incentives for local Jurisdictions to comply. I mean is, you know such a thing as carrots and sticks, But I think what's what's what was happening at the local level. I can't even talk about it in my own district is that there's a growing awareness that a lot of these issues are really local issues that need to be addressed by the federal government could play a powerful role in helping create a climate and providing the incentives help make it more likely that our local jurisdictions will do the right thing. You mentioned the program from the Pentagon, where Surplus weaponry could be bought by police department. These are mainly weapons that were made meant those military weapons. How did this seemingly get out of hand at the point where local police departments are that don't even have enough servers say to record all of the video that may be record by police camps. How did this get to the point that these military grade weapons were being used? I think the initial impetus for this came after things like 9 11 where people were afraid local police forces would be facing terrorism on a level that they hadn't seen before. But This seems to have grown to an extent and in areas where It was really not considered when this program started. We'll look like many ideas, well intentioned, you know, he got out of control. I mean, you know, President Obama try toe for this, But, you know, all police departments are not all the same. But there were some that you know when they see new equipment, even if it's you know, weapons, even its equipment. Useful war. I mean, you know they apply for they try to get it. On again. We have departments that have amassed military equipment That really is equipment that is meant for fighting wars and, you know, dealing with enemy combatants not dealing with with our citizens. Policing shouldn't be. You know a few things the same way we view the role of our military. And unfortunately, some jurisdictions that has that has been the case. You mentioned transparency and the idea of a national police misconduct registry. I think this is something came as a surprise to a lot of people that if I'm a police department in one city, and somebody applies to Be a police officer. Very often. I have no way to find out if they have been accused of misconduct. In another police department somewhere because thes records were not public, even to them correct. It's ridiculous. I think it came as a surprise to a lot of people, but that's been one of the problems. I mean, you had some bad police officers that have moved from one department to another department to another department who have terrific records. Now, I don't know whether You know those who hired them? We're aware of some of their records. But the bottom line is, my guess is that in many cases they didn't and they just brought their bad behavior from one department to another. And look, I think it's report for the public to know whether or not there are police officers..

"Madam speaker on Wednesday afternoon the rules committee marked up in favor really reported house resolution six sixty directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing house of representatives enquiring into whether sufficient grounds exist for the house of representatives to exercise its constitutional power to impeach Donald John trump president of the United States of America speaker this is a sad day for our country over two hundred and thirty years ago when the founders of our country wrote the constitution they entrusted us with the gift of self government but they knew the persistence of this gift was not a short it may be taken for granted today but having your shaken up a tyrant the founders knew better I understood that the very foundations of our country our depended on safeguarding against one branch of government encroaching on the others that's what the idea of checks and balances is all about within that system the framers gave only this Congress the power if need be to impeach a president over possible wrongdoing this fact that no one is above the law is what separates this country from so many others because of its seriousness the impeachment process has been really use for presidents for just the fourth time in our nation's history Congress is now investigating whether to impeach a president of the United States our authority to do so under article two section for the constitution of the United States and the rules of the house of representatives is clear and the courts have recently agreed for all the disagreements I have with president trump for all his policies his tweets and his rhetoric that I deeply disagree with I never wanted our country to reach this point I do not take any pleasure in the need for this resolution we are not here in some partisan exercise we are here because the facts compel us to be here there are very serious evidence that president trump may have violated the constitution this is about protecting our national security and safeguarding our elections that's why the intelligence committee has been gathering evidence and hearing testimony like any investigation reasonable confidentiality has been paramount witness you should not be able to coordinate testimony in advance the truth must be allowed to prevail Republicans have been a part of every single proceeding conducted so far Republicans conducting these depositions along with your staff have had an opportunity to question each and every witness now ma'am speaker we are entering the public facing phase of this process and I commend the investigative committees and their staffs for the professional manner which they've conducted themselves I'd also like to commend the courageous public servants that have bravely come forward to tell the truth without their coverage this possible wrongdoing would never have seen the light of day the public should not be left in the dark they should see the facts about the president's conduct first hand that's why I introduce this resolution it is establishes the next steps of this requiring including establishing the procedure for public facing hearings conducted by the intelligence committee and the process for transferring evidence to the Judiciary Committee it's about transparency and it's about due process for the present some on the other side will never be satisfied with any process that it covers the true to what the president did madam speaker it none of us knows whether or not president trump will be impeached or convicted only the facts and how we respond to them will dictate the outcome but I truly believe that a hundred years from now historians will look back at this moment in judge us by the decisions we make here today this moment calls for more than politics it calls for people concerned not about the reactions of partisans today but of the consequences of inaction decades from now if we don't hold this president accountable we could be feeding your ability to hold any president accountable and at the end of the day this rich resolution isn't about Donald Trump it isn't about any of us it's about our constitution it's about our country and so I urge my colleagues to do not just think about the political pressures of the moment these will pass please consider the heavy responsibility you have today to this institution the constitution and to our country I reserve the balance of my time German house rules committee chair Jim McGovern rice madam speaker I want to thank the gentleman from Massachusetts Mister governed for yielding me the customary thirty minutes and I yield myself such time as I may consume Germans recognized Tom call is the ranking Republican on the rules committee Elizabeth which you have a last night hearing before I begin madam speaker I would ask the chairman if he would withdraw the resolution at which time I will ask unanimous consent that the house immediately proceed to the consideration of HR six six eight instead which provides for consideration of house resolution six sixty under a rule madam speaker this would in no way prevent the consideration of the resolution before us today however would provide us with an opportunity for all members to participate in the process my proposed rule would provide for four hours of general debate on HR I six six zero allow for amendments under an open process and provide for a motion to recommit on an issue as important as this madam speaker one hour of debate on a resolution written in the dark of night and marked up in a process where no Republican amendments were accepted is simply insufficient additionally would allow all members to offer amendments to improve the process to get to the truth which I'm sure is the goal of all my colleagues on both sides of the aisle with that I would ask the chairman to accept my request when you I certainly of my friend I can recognize no I do not thank you madam speaker then I would ask unanimous consent to debate time on the house resolution six fifty be expanded to four hours so every member could purchase of a gentleman from Massachusetts has yielded all time for debate only the gentleman from Massachusetts would have to heal for this request thank you very much madam speaker in that case I want to act begin by echoing my friends words is a sad day for all of us for me personally I'm sure for all of my colleagues on the rules committee and for the institution as a whole today's resolution set forth a process for impeaching the president of the United States it's not a fair process it's not an open process it's not a transparent process but instead is limited and a close process with a pre ordained outcome impeachment of the president is one of the most consequential acts that the house of representatives I can do and it should only be done after the fullest consideration and yet over the last month without a vote and with only the speaker say so committees having been engaged in a closed impeachment inquiry on what amounts to nothing more than a partisan fishing expedition at least today the majority's admitting what we know and have known all along that the house was not following an appropriate process for impeachment I do not think the process were setting for in this resolution is a fair one either that's not fair to the president of the United States it's not fair to the house of representatives and it's not fair to the American people the process laid out in the resolution before us is different from the process used for both president Nixon in nineteen seventy four and president Clinton in nineteen ninety eight today's resolution provides fewer process protections and fewer protection for minority rights then what we've seen in previous impeachment efforts at our mark up yesterday Republicans tried to change that we tried to offer constructive amendments that made the process more fair it would give rights to the minority that would give rights to the accused and that would ensure due process for everyone Republicans offered seventeen amendments and not one not one madam speaker was accepted not one we offered amendments that would align the subpoena powers in this resolution with the subpoena powers used for president Clinton unlike then as the Clinton inquire re today's resolution does not provide for co equal subpoenas not power instead of grants the minority the right to subpoena witnesses a material only with the concurrence of the chair with no such limitation on the rights of the chair to issue subpoenas we offer the membership would change that but the majority rejected both of them and each of them in turn we offered an amendment that would allow all members the right to fully access committee records this is common sense for doing something as serious as impeaching the president the member should have the right to see what records the committee produced so that they will know what they're voting on yet the majority rejected that we offer an amendment that would require the chairman of the rules committee to promulgate procedures to allow for the participation of the president and his counsel in proceedings of the intelligence committee the oversight committee the foreign affairs committee this right was granted to president Clinton in nineteen ninety eight yeah it's not present here and the majority again rejected the amendment I think the difference is clear today's resolution fails to give the minority the same rights as were present during the Clinton impeachment and it fails to offer the same due process protections they were given the presidents Nixon and Clinton and in the latter case I note those rights were given by a Republican house to a democratic president today's resolution shows a democratic house failing to give the same protections to a Republican president now speaker the unfairness is clear this is not a fair process nor was it ever intended to be it was preordained from the beginning without due process and without a fair process of respect for minority rights I do not believe the American people regard will guard this process is legitimate a legitimate process is one that offers protection for everyone involved and without those protections this will be seen as just another partisan exercise won the majority of been pushing since the very first first days of the hundred and sixteen Congress we can do better than that madam speaker the rules committee should have done better than this but since the rules committee didn't the house from us and with that madam speaker Irish opposition to the measure and reserve the balance of my time Tom Cole is the ranking member of the house rules committee earlier today manage bigger let me just say briefly that this resolution provides better protections for the president than what president Nixon Clint received and just like under Nixon and Clinton and the Judiciary Committee the president's council can submit additional testimony or evidence for the committee to consider the president is in his counsel can attend all hearings to raise objections they can question any witness this going is going beyond Nixon and Clinton this resolution allows the president's counsel to ask questions at the presentation of evidence under our procedures the ranking minority members of the Judiciary Committee and the intelligence committee may issue subpoenas of authorized by the committee by committee vote these are the same subpoena powers that the ranking minority member was given during Clinton Nixon a resolution allows for greater member participation then underpass impeachment proceeding procedures including a robust process for the minority to propose witnesses and even issue subpoenas if authorized by a by committees and and and let me just say I think that the fact of the matter is I don't either is any process that we can propose that that Republicans who prefer to circle the wagons around this president and prevent us from getting to the truth would accept I ask unanimous commitment you know his consent to Jordan for the record H. res S. eighty one from the hundred fifth Congress the Clinton peach required resolution that contains the same minority subpoena powers as a resolution transaction I also ask unanimous consent to insert in the record H. raise eight oh three the ninety three Congress the Nixon impeachment acquire resolution which also contains the same Minories subpoena powers is this resolution transaction so having said that ma'am speaker I yield one minute to the gentleman from New Mexico the assistance speaker Mr lu Han committee chair Jim McGovern madam

By deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, twenty two months ago to investigate Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential election and investigate claims of collusion between the Trump campaign in Russia. Something CBS correspondent Mola langey tells us the president has vehemently denied, it was no collusion. I didn't need Russians to help me when I awoke President Trump has repeatedly denied he had any help from the Russians and has consistently attacked the Muller probe. No collusion. No, nothing all the phony which forty which during the nearly two year. Pro- Muller has charged six of the president's associates with crimes ranging from lying to the FBI to tax evasion.

"The longest shutdown in recent memory was in one thousand nine hundred twenty one days. So Michael are gonna get anywhere close to that. It looks like that's the direction it's going. It looks like we'll be able to get past. At first third of that right now. And it looks like there's no end in sight, and you're going to be heading into January third with a new house. Democrats running the new house, and then that's going to add things to this certainly for President Trump making a much more difficult for him to be able to get anything done. And that's after two years of a Republican run house Senate and executive office. So there doesn't appear at this point to be any conversation. I'll also add this Mr. T, I think there's a certain element of social media. That's coming into play here. I think you have you certainly have a good people in congress that are more interested in making a statement on social media and seeing how many likes or re tweets they're getting rather than, hey, let's get face to face in congress here and yell at each other the way it used to be done in the good old days. Negotiation process here you had the Senate reconvening for the first time yesterday, but my Christmas and that session lasted four minutes. Three four minutes. There's green day songs but last longer than the session they had yesterday in the house met for just as brief period of time even having Scalise on the floor say that lawmakers should not expect any votes for the remainder of the year. So they they tried to get Jim McGovern up there from Massachusetts to force consideration on that same stopgap funding Bill that would fund the rest of the government yelling. And then stop this shutdown portion of things but Republicans weren't gonna recognize him. So we're literally at a standstill rights. Yeah. But the problem here is that you didn't go back to ninety five with the Clinton one that was a policy based shutdown that was over getting funding done in the budgetary issue concern between President Clinton and Newt Gingrich. This is not that this is President Trump promising a wall for his election and not being able to have funding for the past two years for trying to get either funding now or make a stumbling roadblock of some kind of the Democrats that are coming in on January third. But I think the challenge there is Democrats are prepared for this. And I think what they're doing what they took yesterday that time that they had over the four minutes. And then they had all this time to sit down and talk. They've been coming up with plans to include three different approaches for funding the government, and none of them include proposed money for President Trump's border wall. But they want to be able to come to the table on January third and say here are three different things. We can do right now to get government back on track to stop any concerns about the financial markets and concerns there in about how stable the US is. And we're doing it showing how we can govern responsibly compared to what's going on over in that chaotic White House. I think that's the PR move. They're going to try to bring to the table here.
